Time seemed to stop, and in a place that the three elders could not see, there was an explosive shattering. The third-generation successor stopped and trembled, his destructive energy halting right before it could erupt.
The three elders were all stunned.
They had all experienced the strength of this successor. His Origin Immortal Stellar Energy that could shatter mountains was simply unstoppable, and even when the three of them had attacked together, they had still been knocked away. Moreover, Wang Chong was suffering from his cultivation defect and could not move at this time.
But this existence akin to the god of death had suddenly stopped, turning into a statue.
"Could it be that he"
Standing at the very back, the Lone Silence Ancestor stopped, his eyes twinkling. He seemed to think of something as he stared at the motionless successor, but the idea was so absurd that he didn't dare to believe it.
There was a rush of air and an immense pull, and Wang Chong was drawn out from beneath the palm of the walking corpse.
"Chong-er, are you okay?" a concerned voice asked into Wang Chong's ear. The Demonic Emperor Old Man, having little time to ponder the change in the successor, had decided to 'save' Wang Chong first.
The Demonic Emperor Old Man's greatest concern was his inheriting disciple!
"Master, I'm fine."
Wang Chong shook his head. His face was ghastly pale and his body was drenched in cold sweat.
"Chong-er, that Origin Immortal Art successor you just now did you really" the Wushang Village Chief faltered, taking back his white cane and coming forward. His eyes went back and forth between Wang Chong and the motionless successor.
As if understanding what the Wushang Village Chief was trying to say, Wang Chong looked up and gave a weak yet relaxed smile.
"Senior, Master, I truly have taken control of him!"
The air seemed to freeze. The three seniors who were close to Wang Chong's grandfather in age glanced speechlessly at each other, their bodies stiff.
Even the Demonic Emperor Old Man had a look of disbelief on his face. He had vaguely guessed as to what was going on, but to hear Wang Chong verify it was something else entirely.
"How is this possible?" the Wushang Village Chief blurted out, somewhat unable to control himself.
That was a disciple of the Origin Immortal Lord, a successor of the world's number one 'Supreme and Infinite Origin Immortal Art'. Each one of these disciples had been an incredibly talented genius, a peerless existence.
This third-generation successor from the end days of the Eastern Han Dynasty had already been half a step into the Subtle realm, and he was much stronger than the other guardians encountered in this underground palace.
And the mysteries and strengths of the Supreme and Infinite Origin Immortal Art had allowed his true strength to surpass other experts of the same level. Thus, even though the Demonic Emperor had fought with him for so long and with such great difficulty, he had still almost died.
But now, Wang Chong was saying that he had taken control over him.
He had taken control of this near-Subtle-realm expert, and he had done so while on the verge of falling apart from his cultivation defect.
A moment ago, the three of them had believed that Wang Chong would be killed.
Wang Chong smiled and began to explain what had happened. Wang Chong had seemingly performed a miracle, taking control of this terrifying expert that could oppose Subtle realm experts. It was truly a most praiseworthy deed.
But only Wang Chong knew just how close he had been to death.
Wang Chong's Psychic Energy barrage on the third-generation successor had not been very useful, and there had even been a moment where Wang Chong had begun to despair, believing that he really would die to the hands of this walking corpse.
But in the end, Wang Chong had managed to win.
In the end, a Psychic Seal from nearly one thousand years ago had not been able to stand up against the Psychic Energy of someone at his prime. The river of time had even ground away at the user of the seal, much less the seal itself.
Wang Chong's final victory had come to be because he had come to understand a certain principle as he battled with that seal.
Psychic Energy was also a type of power, and while the Psychic Seal on this successor was powerful, it did not possess limitless power. Each bit of its power consumed was power that it could not get back.
This was also why they had another seal on their bodies that could repel Psychic Energy.
This had been a clash of Psychic Energy, and while the level of the seal had certainly been incredible, Wang Chong's tangible Psychic Energy had managed to win the battle.
Wang Chong's tale left the other three in the hall stunned and speechless.
The Origin Immortal Lord's powerful seal that had lasted for nearly one thousand years had been broken by Wang Chong, and Wang Chong had even taken control of the third-generation successor If this matter got out, it would undoubtedly leave all the martial artists of the world stunned.
Each successor of the Origin Immortal Art had been an uncrowned king of their era, the true world's number one, but Wang Chong had managed to take control of one of them!
As the Demonic Emperor Old Man recalled how even the three of them were so hard-pressed against this foe, he found himself unable to say anything.
"Your Highness, can you make that walking corpse move?" the Lone Silence Ancestor cautiously said, even changing the way he addressed Wang Chong.
The Demonic Emperor Old Man and the Wushang Village Chief failed to notice anything, but Wang Chong shot a profound glance at the Lone Silence Ancestor and smirked. He seemed to realize something, but he kept the revelation to himself for the moment.
Wang Chong nodded.
"Although I've taken control of this walking corpse, I still have a little work to do Wait a moment for me!"
Wang Chong closed his eyes and began to communicate with the consciousness inside the successor's body. A while later, the motionless successor's body trembled and then stood up.
A moment later, the third-generation successor turned around and stared with his lifeless eyes at the four. Boom! Golden light exploded from his body, and the Origin Immortal Stellar Energy surged out. The Stellar Energy traveled for six or seven meters before stopping and beginning to ceaselessly churn.
"Wang Chong, can you control those golden compasses?" the Wushang Village Chief asked, an expectant look in his eyes.
The fortress of golden compasses created by the Origin Immortal Art was one of the strongest defensive techniques in the world. It was able to completely neutralize the Great Yinyang Heaven Creation Art, the Myriad Spirit Sea Art, the Wushang Village Chief's Yang Ren Divine Art and White Dragon Divine Art, and also the Lone Silence Ancestor's Gonggong Divine Art. This feat alone was enough to make it the world's number one art.
If Wang Chong could have the third-generation successor use this golden compass fortress, the group would have another way of protecting themselves as they ventured deeper into this dangerous place.
They would also have it much easier when dealing with the seemingly endless traps of the Origin Immortal Treasury.
Wang Chong opened his eyes and said, "I'll try!"
A few moments later, an even more dazzling golden light burst forth, transforming into a millstone-sized golden compass that floated in the sea of Origin Immortal Stellar Energy around the third-generation successor.
Hundreds more golden compasses began to manifest, and a short while later, that grandiose and dazzling golden fortress had emerged.
The golden fortress was the height of two adult men and protected the third-generation successor from all angles. It exuded a divine golden light and seemed utterly unconquerable.
The Demonic Emperor Old Man, Wushang Village Chief, and Lone Silence Ancestor were all shocked by this sight, but they were also delighted.
"Hahaha, wonderful. Your Highness, with this walking corpse, we have a protective talisman. We'll be much safer no matter where we go!"
The Lone Silence Ancestor's eyes shone as he gazed at that war-god-like successor and heartily laughed.
He had believed that all of them would die to this successor, and he had never expected such a reversal. The third-generation successor was now on their side!
The Demonic Emperor Old Man and the Wushang Village Chief said nothing, but the looks of gratitude in their eyes said everything.
"Chong-er, it seems that you've already surpassed your master!"
The Demonic Emperor Old Man sighed.
The master was not necessarily inferior to the disciple, and the disciple was not necessarily inferior to the master. The Demonic Emperor Old Man felt sincere happiness over Wang Chong's performance.
Meanwhile, the third-generation successor was not done yet.
Under Wang Chong's control, the golden pavilion of the 'Trayastrimsa Heaven' appeared behind the third-generation successor, creating a golden halo that illuminated the darkness like the sun.
The third-generation successor reached behind him, and the Trayastrimsa Heaven pavilion collapsed into a twenty-two-section halberd that was covered in golden inscriptions. As it did so, the third-generation successor swelled in power.
Even the Arab War God who Wang Chong had fought at Talas appeared lackluster compared to the third-generation successor at this moment.
