"Let's go! This Origin Immortal Formation should be able to last for about an hour. After that, the other formation will begin to operate again. We need to get out of here."
Wang Chong's calm voice resounded in everyone's ears.
While everyone else was stunned, Wang Chong remained calm. He stepped forward, following the Demonic Emperor Old Man and the Wushang Village Chief deeper into the depths.
This method of disrupting the metallic storm was just a small trick. An hour was its absolute limit. It was best if they left this dangerous region as quickly as possible.
Whoosh! Gravel and rock sprayed from the pit walls as the members of the group used various methods to keep up with Wang Chong and the Demonic Emperor Old Man.
"Just which supreme martial artist was able to stop these metal blades?"
"Let's go! The formation must have stopped on its own! How could a martial artist possibly have done such a thing? You're talking nonsense!"
At the same time, countless martial artists elsewhere began to rush into the depths. Wang Chong had created an extremely rare chance, and thousands of martial artists began to advance at full speed.
Nine thousand meters, ten thousand meters at this depth, everyone couldn't help but feel a sense of dread, and what was even more frightening was that there was still no end.
The mere thought of a pit more than ten thousand meters deep was terrifying.
Suddenly, a martial artist behind Wang Chong swayed and toppled over, striking the wall before plunging into the bottomless abyss.
"Zhou Chi!" another martial artist cried out.
But this martial artist had fallen too quickly for anyone to save him in time.
"You should stop here! The air here is extremely thin. Only those of the Saint Martial realm should follow. The rest should go back," the Demonic Emperor Old Man warned. Even with his cultivation, he still felt uncomfortable, so one could imagine how those weaker were faring.
The Demonic Emperor Old Man turned his head to Wang Chong. "Chong-er, get ready. Adjust your breathing and store up sufficient air. Once that's done, we'll advance as quickly as possible.
Wang Chong firmly nodded. The three closed their eyes and began to consume the surrounding air.
With each long breath, they drew in oxygen-rich air and stored it in the cells throughout their bodies.
The Demonic Emperor Old Man waved his sleeve, the three opened their eyes, and then they rushed downward with explosive speed.
Behind them, the martial artists looked hesitantly down into the depths. At a depth of ten thousand meters, their strength was restricted by an astonishing amount.
"What happened to that man just now is an example of what will happen if you go any farther. Although it's not guaranteed that you won't come back, there is an extremely high chance that you'll remain in this pit forever."
A bearded and brawny martial artist hesitated a few moments before making up his mind. "If you don't enter the tiger's cave, how can you get the tiger's cub? If it means I can get the world's number one art and dominate the martial arts world, this risk means nothing!" He emerged out of a depression in the wall and swiftly made his way into the depths.
With this person leading the way, more and more martial artists joined him.
Every martial artist was a risk taker, and these people who had gathered in the northwest had long ago prepared to meet their deaths.
They were already at ten thousand meters. After enduring the metallic storm, they could not bear the thought of giving up on being the world's number one at a place like this.
Many of the martial artists continued deeper into the pit.
Twelve thousand meters, thirteen thousand meters1 There was still no sight of the bottom, but Wang Chong vaguely sensed that it was close now.
"Master, watch out!"
Wang Chong's voice suddenly rang out in the ears of the Demonic Emperor Old Man and the Wushang Village Chief. Right after he spoke, an almost tangible tide of energy erupted from the depths, causing the entire world to sway.
This energy was so densely packed and immense that it seemed like a massive gout of flame.
In the darkness, its dazzling blue light was almost blinding.
Three boundless tides of Stellar Energy erupted from the bodies of Wang Chong, the Demonic Emperor Old Man, and the Wushang Village Chief, firmly affixing their bodies to the walls of the pit.
A moment later, without even time for the three to say another word, that tide of energy impacted them.
Screams resounded through the airnot from Wang Chong or the Demonic Emperor Old Man, but from those martial artists who had been closely following them.
The appearance of this tide of energy had taken them by complete surprise.
Numerous people were struck by the tide of energy and tossed into the air. This immense impact was enough to instantly pulverize the organs of some of the martial artists, instantly killing them.
Rumble! Wang Chong, the Demonic Emperor Old Man, and the Wushang Village Chief pressed their backs against the wall, but they were also under unimaginable pressure.
Although they had not been washed away by that tide of energy, they felt a weight of tens of thousands of tons on their bodies.
Under this immense pressure, the Stellar Energy around their bodies was tottering and swaying, and their reserves were being consumed at an astonishing rate.
"Master, Village Chief, let me help you!"
Wang Chong split his mind into two parts, and his voice rang out simultaneously in the minds of the Demonic Emperor Old Man and the Wushang Village Chief.
The pressure from this tide of energy was constantly increasing, and even more importantly, no one knew how long it would last. If it was similar to the first trial of the metallic storm, they would probably all die here.
Rather than blocking it up, it was better to guide it away. To consume so much Stellar Energy before even seeing the Origin Immortal Treasury would probably make anything they encountered next even more dangerous.
Without the slightest hesitation, Wang Chong used the Great Yinyang Heaven Creation Art, and under Wang Chong's guidance, that majestic surge of energy rumbled into the bodies of the trio.
Although this tide of energy was so strong that it could instantly kill Imperial Martial experts, it was still extremely powerful Origin Energy. However, Wang Chong was probably the only one capable of actually absorbing such powerful energy over such a short period of time.
If one were careless, not only would one fail to obtain energy, one would end up heavily injured or even dead.
Under Wang Chong's guidance, the energy poured into the bodies of the Demonic Emperor Old Man and the Wushang Village Chief. With the support of this energy, they were able to restore the reserves they had previously exhausted and even recover their mental state.
"This is the perfect chance to charge up the Energy Condensation Pearl!"
Seeing that the Demonic Emperor Old Man's and the Wushang Village Chief's conditions had stabilized, Wang Chong guided the tide of energy into the Energy Condensation Pearl.
The consecutive battles and the metal storm had caused Wang Chong to use up a large amount of the energy stored in the Energy Condensation Pearl. This vast tide of energy now presented Wang Chong a rare opportunity.
The almost exhausted Energy Condensation Pearl buzzed and hummed as it swelled with power. Wang Chong had managed to profit from this misfortune, not only helping his master and the village chief recover, but also recharging the Energy Condensation Pearl.
Wang Chong was elated. Truly, every cloud had a silver lining. He had never expected to be able to find a place to recharge so deep underground.
However, Wang Chong's joy did not last for long. The wall behind Wang Chong, the Demonic Emperor Old Man, and the Wushang Village Chief began to tremble. Wang Chong sensed that a tide of energy nearly one hundred times more powerful than the first was about to erupt.
This time, though, it wasn't coming from the depths of the pit, but from the wall behind them.
A second later, this terrifying tide of energy erupted from the wall, striking Wang Chong's group and instantly obliterating their Stellar Energy barriers.
Wang Chong paled, and a moment later, the two different tides of energy had knocked the three of them loose and thrown them into the air.
"Chong-er! Hurry and use the Great Yinyang Heaven Creation Art!"
As the Demonic Emperor Old Man's voice resounded in Wang Chong's ear, he used his own supreme art.
"Myriad Spirit Sea Art!"
This was the first time since the Battle of Talas that the Demonic Emperor Old Man had used this art.
With a resounding boom, the tide of energy erupting out of the wall and the tide of energy erupting from the depths of the pit were parted by another powerful energy. For a moment, an energy vacuum was created around Wang Chong, the Wushang Village Chief, and the Demonic Emperor Old Man.
"Great Yin Yang Art!"
While upside down, Wang Chong used one of the powerful techniques of the Great Yinyang Heaven Creation Art. The energies of Yin and Yang emerged beneath the trio.
Yin and Yang were the origin of all the energy of the world. The moment Wang Chong used this technique, the two different tides of energy began to twist, revolve, and compress. In that energy vacuum around Wang Chong's group, a barrier of energy began to condense, serving as their shield.
"Ten Thousand Dragons Dam the Waters!"
As Wang Chong was using the Great Yin Yang Art, a white cane extended into the air and tapped on the barrier of condensed energy that had been formed.
Even more energy began to surge onto the barrier, condensing upon it with a freezing crackle. In a flash, the crystalline energy barrier had become more than a foot thick.
1. At thirteen thousand meters, this pit now surpasses the deepest hole mankind has ever drilled into the earth.
