Chapter 683: Response Plan
For a person who was seven feet tall to be sealed in a piece of battle armor, it was definitely through the use of spatial dimension laws. However, Yi Yun had never heard of such a method of sealing people in battle armor.
If he wasn't wrong, the Black-armored Demon God was using this method to gain strength.
He was injured, and very badly at that. Be it the Azure Yang Lord's sword strike or because he had been sealed for tens of millions of years, they had all caused his life force to be like a flickering candle in the wind.
Furthermore, with one of his eyes completely petrified, this made Yi Yun even more confident of his theory.
The Black-armored Demon God was not as strong as what he seemed to be.
Hum Hum Hum...
As the Mystic Void Mountain's legendary figure was drawn into the armor, a ghostly wail echoed from the Black-armored Demon God's armor.
It sounded like a few suffering souls were wailing within.
Upon hearing these wails, Yi Yun had a thought as he faintly felt a familiar presence...
"Shen Tu Patriarch!"
Yi Yun suddenly realized that Shen Tu Patriarch and company, who were thought to be dead, were most likely sealed in the armor.
Yi Yun knew that after Greatsword Mountain was destroyed, only the corpses of the younger generation were left behind, while the corpses of the legendary figures had all disappeared.
If they did not die, but were sealed by the Black-armored Demon God, then everything could be explained.
"The Black-armored Demon God is using such a technique to absorb power… " Yi Yun said with a solemn voice, his face grim.
"In the battle tens of millions of years ago, he must have suffered a serious injury… Now he might look strong, but his life force and spiritual force in his body is unstable. It might even very likely collapse from inside out!"
Lin Xintong watched the projection's Black-armored Demon God intently. The power that the Black-armored Demon God exhibited could be described as that of invincibility, so it was very difficult for people to believe that it was possible that he would collapse.
"Then what do we do? Should we grab the opportunity to set up a massive formation array to kill him while he is weak, hoping to spark off the collapse of his life force?" A Lin family Elder asked without much confidence. No matter from what angle the scene was looked at, the Black-armored Demon God looked undefeatable. However, they had no understanding of the Black-armored Demon God. Their past experiences were useless. As for Yi Yun and Lin Xintong who had entered the Great Empress mystic realm, they understood a lot more.
"That is equivalent to suicide… " Yi Yun immediately rejected the thought.
Despite the Black-armored Demon God being severely injured, the remaining amount of strength he had was still terrifying. Yi Yun did not have any hopes of beating him even if he was to attack him with Lin Xintong.
As for the unstable and chaotic spiritual energy and life force in the Black-armored Demon God, it was possible for them to collapse, but Yi Yun didn’t know the method to trigger that.
If he were to charge together with Lin Xintong, that was equivalent to betting with their lives. He had to ensure victory before making any moves.
And before that, the only choice available to him was avoidance.
"Then, isn't the Tian Yuan world doomed?" The Grand Elder, who posed the question, asked dejectedly.
No one was looking at the visual disk array anymore. The only thing that was shown was a one-sided slaughter. After the death of the Mystic Void Mountain's Grand Elder, the remaining disciples may have turned distraught, swearing to fight to the death, but in front of the Black-armored Demon God, ants were still ants. He did not change at all even if they were fighting to the death.
"The situation may not be that bad yet. All of you should withdraw first." Yi Yun suddenly said this, stunning everyone from the Lin family.
The Lin family had established themselves on this piece of land for tens of thousands of years, establishing a family clan through painstaking efforts over generations. Now, they were to withdraw?
However, other than withdrawal, they had no other method.
However, where were they to withdraw to?
"Then what about you and Xintong?" Matriarch Lin asked with concern. She could faintly sense that Yi Yun had other plans from the way he said it.
"I have something else to do." Yi Yun said without much thought. With the appearance of the Black-armored Demon God, he only felt things were unfortunate, but he was not in panic.
This scene was completely different from more than a decade ago when the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom he resided in had experienced the beast horde or when he was harmed by Shen Tu Nantian, as well as being forcefully separated from his elder sister Jiang Xiaorou.
At that time, Yi Yun was weak, with no place to reside in and faced an unknown future. Although he was resolute and determined, there was no avoiding feeling a bit at a loss.
But today, Yi Yun already possessed immense strength. He had Lin Xintong by his side and he had the Great Empress mystic realm.
Even against the Black-armored Demon God, he did not lack the ability to resist.
"Yi Yun, what are you planning to do? Don't tell me that you and Xintong are planning to fight the Black-armored Demon God by yourselves?" Matriarch Lin's voice was filled with worry.
From Matriarch Lin's standpoint, even if they abandoned the Lin family's grounds or the Lin family was slaughtered by the Black-armored Demon God, it was something she could accept. However, she could not accept anything happening to Yi Yun and Lin Xintong. They were the Lin family's hope and the future of the Tian Yuan world.
"Matriarch, rest assured. I'm cognizant of that." Yi Yun's voice remained calm and in an intangible manner, he gave people a sense of confidence.
"Young master Yi, you suggested withdrawing, but where should we withdraw to?" A Lin family Elder found the future unpromising.
The Black-armored Demon God was already threatening the entire Tian Yuan world. He was like a killing machine without any consciousness. Greatsword Mountain and Mystic Void Mountain were not the only two factions that were destroyed by him, there were also large numbers of human warriors that had been slaughtered by him.
Wherever he passed, rivers of blood formed with massive numbers of lives extinguished.
This was an unprecedented calamity, and there was nowhere to hide.
"Withdraw to the Divine Wilderness, to the Desolate race!" Yi Yun said without any hesitation.
Upon hearing these words, everyone was stunned.
The human race and the Desolate race had been sworn enemies for tens of millions of years. The two races were separated by the vast Divine Wilderness and it was a long journey. There had been numerous disasters throughout history, but even those exiled human forces did not think of withdrawing to the Desolate race.
However, Yi Yun was different. People knew Yi Yun's elder sister, Jiang Xiaorou was the new Desolate Queen of the Desolate race. And there was no need to doubt Yi Yun's relationship with Jiang Xiaorou, because Jiang Xiaorou would do anything for Yi Yun without any hesitation.
Furthermore, in the Soul Tomb, Yi Yun and Lin Xintong had saved the Desolate race elites. Putting aside Jiang Xiaorou, Yi Yun had extremely high prestige amongst the Desolate race.
All of these reasons added up meant that Yi Yun and Lin Xintong had a unique position amongst the Desolate race!
Even if the human race and the Desolate race were like unmixable elements like fire and water, with Yi Yun present, his will and orders would ensure the acceptance of the Lin family by the Desolate race.
Upon thinking of this, people had indescribable thoughts.
In a period of seven years in the past, the Tian Yuan world's human race had the Martial Alliance as its leader. They were nearly about to go to war with the Desolate race. People were certain the Desolate race would bring havoc to the Tian Yuan world, while Yi Yun and Lin Xintong were considered traitors of the human race. They were hated by countless numbers of people, and people hoped that they were hacked to death.
But now, the true calamity of the Tian Yuan world had arrived. There was nowhere in the Tian Yuan world that they could reside in. The Desolate race that was on the other side of the distant Divine Wilderness had instead turned into a unstained land.
Withdrawing to the Desolate race was also the best choice to preserve the family.
It was quite ironic how many large family clans of the human race had to eventually seek asylum from the original enemy.
As for the Desolate race, they could accept the people brought by Yi Yun, but for those brought by other humans, it was hard to tell if they would accept them!
They might even be rejected at the door!
At this moment, the visual disk array finished its projection. Yi Yun pressed down on the disk array and said, "The Lin family's mortals and low-level warriors are to evacuate. There are no teleportation arrays in the Divine Wilderness, so we won't be able to take so many people. Low level warriors might not end up as the hunting goals of the Black-armored Demon God. As for all the important personnel of the Lin family, I will lead them to the Divine Wilderness. After you are settled, Xintong and I will leave the Divine Wilderness to do something important."
In a few words, Yi Yun finished explaining the appropriate response plan that the Lin family had to take up while facing this disaster. It was very simple, but it was extremely effective.
His confidence had infected them.
When they first saw the Black-armored Demon God appear, destroying one faction after another in an indomitable fashion, they felt that the end of the world had arrived. Even the revered legendary figures felt despair.
But now, with Yi Yun and Lin Xintong's return, they calmed down. They suddenly seemed to have a backbone supporting them. The matter was not as terrible as it seemed. They still had hope!
