At the time, Wang Chong had only one-third of his power and was also facing the attacks of the first-generation successor and divine sword. Moreover, he also had Bagushidu's 'Dark Moon's Flame' within his body. Not even the Lone Silence Ancestor had believed that he could do it.
This youth appeared to possess limitless potential, and there seemed to be nothing that he couldn't do.
This was an existence that no one in the world could afford to provoke!
As the Lone Silence Ancestor sighed, the Demonic Emperor arrived. He didn't even glance at Bagushidu's body. It wasn't really anything special for a Turkic expert who had lusted for the Origin Immortal Treasury to end up this way.
"This isn't a place that we can remain for very long. Chong-er, did you get the Origin Immortal Art?"
The Demonic Emperor Old Man quickly turned back to Wang Chong.
"No, but I did get the Formation Divine Treatise Senior Zhou was looking for."
Wang Chong, sword in hand, slowly descended like an alighting goose.
The Demonic Emperor Old Man and Wushang Village Chief trembled in shock, their faces grimacing. Even the Lone Silence Ancestor turned his head in shock.
The Origin Immortal Lord had designed this barrier and placed the first-generation successor and the divine sword to guard the area, and this was also the very heart of the Origin Immortal Treasury. How could the Origin Immortal Art not be here?
Moreover, they had also seen Wang Chong reach the altar, remove the divine sword, and also obtain a few objects.
"I'm also not sure what's going on, but I sense that the Origin Immortal Lord's plans for this treasury weren't that simple. There's probably another cave here, perhaps more mechanisms and switches. In short, it's not simple!" Wang Chong sternly said.
The three of them deeply frowned. The Lone Silence Ancestor was one thing, but the Demonic Emperor Old Man and Wushang Village Chief knew that Wang Chong was not deceiving them. If he said that he didn't have it, he didn't have it.
"If it wasn't on the altar, then we have a problem"
The Demonic Emperor Old Man was greatly troubled and began to think.
It was said that the Origin Immortal Lord could see the future. If Wang Chong hadn't found it, it meant that the legendary expert had made other plans.
But the greatest problem was that they didn't have much time left, and without the Origin Immortal Art, the flaw of the Great Yinyang Heaven Creation Art would remain.
At this moment, the earth suddenly shook and a stampede of footsteps came from the passage.
All four of them trembled in shock at this noise. This was the heart of the treasury, guarded by the generations of walking corpses, an incredibly difficult trial to overcome. Even Wang Chong and Bagushidu had needed to use tricks to get past the second-generation successor.
But they couldn't even tell how many people were coming in through the passage given the great clamor of footsteps.
"What's going on? How could there be so many people?"
The Lone Silence Ancestor's eyes flew open in disbelief, and the others shared the same sentiment.
But there was no time to react. Many auras were rapidly approaching, and panicked shouts began to fill their ears.
"They're coming! Stand aside! Hurry!"
"Ah, I'm going to die! Get out of my way!"
"What are you afraid of? So many of us can't deal with them?!"
"If you want to die, go ahead, but don't block my path! Not good! They've caught up!"
Amidst these panicked shouts, a disheveled martial artist with a ghastly pale face charged out of the passage.
Behind him was a great wave of martial artists, flooding into the region occupied by Wang Chong's group, and even more were right behind them.
Wang Chong's group was struck dumb by this sight.
"Just what is going on?"
Wang Chong was clearly unsettled and startled by the chaotic situation before him, and he stared in a daze at these fearful martial artists.
These martial artists clearly didn't have the strength to reach this place. The second-generation successor alone should have been enough to keep them all out.
And Wang Chong still had much more to be shocked about
A thunderous bellow shook the entire passage, sending sheets of dust and dirt down from the ceiling.
"The Black Yin Ancestor!"
Wang Chong's eyes narrowed as he instantly recognized this extremely foul and evil energy. Wang Chong could also sense the auras of the Bone Devil Ancestor and Myriad Ghost Ancestor right behind him. The three evil path leaders of the Five Ancestor Alliance had arrived at the same time.
"Stand aside! This one will kill anyone who dares to stand in my way!" the Black Yin Ancestor's brutal voice resounded.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Vigorous collisions could be heard, followed by wretched screams, and Wang Chong's group soon saw martial artists being flung out of the passage.
Soon after, in the middle of a cloud of roiling black smoke, a massive black dragon head squeezed its way out of the passage. The Black Yin Ancestor flew out, followed right behind by the Bone Devil Ancestor and Myriad Ghost Ancestor.
The three evil path ancestors had none of their ordinary arrogance. In fact, they seemed rather afraid, like some dreadful thing was chasing them.
"Not good! There's a cliff up ahead!" Those martial artists who had come in first soon discovered the bottomless abyss before them, and as they cried out in panic, the core region of the treasury fell into chaos.
Still, many more martial artists continued to flood in, all of them acting as if they were being hunted down.
As for the people who had been here from the very startWang Chong, the Demonic Emperor Old Man, the Lone Silence Ancestor, and the Wushang Village Chiefthey had been momentarily forgotten.
More and more people arrived in the core, and at this moment, another storm of energy entered the group's perception.
"It's Song Yuanyi!" the Lone Silence Ancestor suddenly blurted out.
As an expert of the martial arts world who had even fought the man before, the Lone Silence Ancestor was incredibly familiar with Song Yuanyi's energy. In truth, no one in the world could imitate the unique energy of Song Yuanyi's Eternal Spring Mantra.
"Just what in the world happened?"
In a flash, Wang Chong, the Demonic Emperor Old Man, the Lone Silence Ancestor, and the Wushang Village Chief exchanged glances of deep apprehension.
Putting aside all the other martial artists, to make even martial arts titans like the Black Yin Ancestor, Bone Devil Ancestor, Myriad Ghost Ancestor, and Song Yuanyi flee in such panic toward the core was something no ordinary person could do.
A few moments later, stern orders were yelled from the passage. "Take up formation!"
As the Righteous Alliance experts charged out of the passage, they moved to the right. Unlike the others, the moment they appeared, they assumed an orderly formation.
In a white flash of light, two storms of energy emerged from the passage, their owners somersaulting in the air before landing in front of the Righteous Alliance group.
"Everyone, hear my order! Use the Seven Executions Formation!"
Song Yuanyi and Xie Guangting stood side by side, their faces grave like never before. Their eyes swept past Wang Chong and the Demonic Emperor Old Man for less than a second before turning to focus on the passage.
Wang Chong's heart instantly sank.
He knew what Song Yuanyi's personality was. This was an incredibly stubborn man. From his arrival in the northwest all the way into the depths of the earth, this man was seemingly determined to kill Wang Chong and the Demonic Emperor Old Man no matter what.
But even though he had spotted Wang Chong, he had not even paused, instead immediately turning to face the passage. This could only mean that the imminent danger was far more important than killing Wang Chong and the Demonic Emperor.
As if in response to Wang Chong's concern, an explosion came from the passage, immense power sweeping through it.
The ten-some martial artists at the very back were caught by the wave of energy and screamed as they were thrown into the air.
These martial artists crashed into the ground or the crowd, and then exploded into blood and limbs. At the time of impact, they had already been nothing but corpses.
The crowd fell into disarray and cried out in alarm. Countless martial artists turned pale and backed away, and a mood of extreme dread and unease permeated the air.
"Hahahaha, none of you are leaving here alive!"
A cold and sinister laughter, devoid of emotion, came from the passage.
Boom! A moment later, another corpse flew out of the passage and slammed into the uneasy crowd. Rumble! Amidst screams and roiling dust, numerous people were knocked flying by this corpse.
Only after flying more than one hundred feet, almost tumbling off the cliff, did the corpse finally stop.
Wang Chong stood to the left of the passage, and when the corpse flew past, Wang Chong sensed a blazing pulse of energy, and then he sensed nothing at all. The person responsible for this deed was far more powerful and frightening than he had imagined.
However, as Wang Chong turned to look at the corpse, he instantly paled.
