Chapter 743: One Final Desperate Attempt
The Sanctuary Island couple flew high into the sky as the other legendary human figures followed closely behind. They once again began to power the Cosmic Infinite Array, by beginning to burn and consume their blood essence!
They had expended too much of their energies, and only by burning their blood essence and life force could they have the strength to attack the Black-armored Demon God.
At this moment, even though they knew that overdrawing on their life force would cause irreparable harm to themselves, and might even decrease their cultivation realm, these legendary figures could no longer care about that.
If they didn't manage to kill the Black-armored Demon God, they would all die. Their heritage, their families and race would all be finished.
At the same moment the human experts attacked, the Desolate race’s Empyreal Kings, including Shepherd Boy and the former Desolate Queen, attacked too. They powered the God Confining Lock once again as burning blood and Qi shot up into the sky.
After this strike, they would definitely have their strengths greatly reduced, but this was the only opportunity to kill the Black-armored Demon God, hence their desperate actions.
The God Advent Tower came crashing from top to bottom onto the Black-armored Demon God, while the human and Desolate race's Empyreal Kings released a strike at the cost of burning their life force.
Energy surged as it exploded in midair. It was as if the sun had descended down to the mortal realm, causing the Divine Wilderness' lands to crater inwards, as millions of tons of rock were evaporated instantly by the energy's high temperature.
The void was torn apart, and just the resulting shockwave alone was terrifying. It caused the attacking Human and Desolate race Empyreal Kings to suffer broken meridians and ruptured organs.
They were seriously wounded, and many of them were nearing the limits of their vitality. This strike had greatly reduced their lifespans.
This was a strike that combined all the strength of the Human and Desolate race, all for one last desperate struggle!
They were already left without any power to carry on fighting, so this strike had to kill the Black-armored Demon God.
Up in the air, Yi Yun was also severely depleted of energy. As for Lin Xintong, she had been injured by the Black-armored Demon God, and was no longer able to participate in the battle.
The God Advent Tower slammed into the ground, forming a huge crater as the pagoda bore deep underground. The suppressive force of the God Advent Tower was immense, as it broke through the lithosphere, causing magma to spew out!
Yi Yun's face was pale. After having to engage in intense battles again and again, especially having used the Dao Leaf, he had used a law that far exceeded Yi Yun's present cultivation realm. This drained too much of him. Now, he was using the Purple Crystal to rapidly absorb Heaven Earth Yuan Qi so as to recover his stamina. However, he could no longer control the God Advent Tower for the time being.
Yi Yun using the God Advent Tower was like a child swinging a giant axe around. Although the power was immense, Yi Yun was still after all unable to fully wield it. Every time he attacked with the God Advent Tower, it would drain a tremendous amount of energy from Yi Yun.
Now, half the pagoda was immersed in magma, and Yi Yun could not easily summon it back. However, his connection with the God Advent Tower was still crystal clear. As long as he recovered a bit more Yuan Qi, he would be able to retrieve the God Advent Tower.
However, the main problem was...the Black-armored Demon God!
Everyone was looking at the gaping hole in the ground. Its diameter stretched hundreds of thousand feet out, and looking far into the distance, the hole stretched all the way to the limits of their vision. Amidst all this was a faint blood-colored smoke lingering around the hole.
At the bottom of the gigantic pit, there was flowing magma. The magnificient God Advent Tower was now half submerged into the magna, and only the top levels were revealed outside.
Was the Black-armored Demon God dead?
People held their breaths. If the Black-armored Demon God did not die, they really had no idea how they were to carry on fighting.
Gases emerged out of magma, forming dark red magma bubbles as they burst one by one.
Everyone's heart tightened as their stared intently at the magma's surface.
As the bubbles increased in number, they also increased in size as an intense amount of killing aura began to surge out of the magma.
Everyone's heart sank. Was the Black-armored Demon God not dead yet?
Yi Yun tightened his grip on the pure Yang broken sword, as his gaze landed on the magma lake like two electric beams.
The magma lake exploded as a stalwart man, who was covered in blood, charged out. His muscles were ruptured, while his armor had cracked. The flesh on his two arms were mangled, while one could see a bloodied bone in his forearm. It could be said he no longer looked human.
Black-armored Demon God! He was still alive!?
The Black-armored Demon God had only one eye left. His blood-red eye was filled with a chaotic and violent killing aura, as his gaze swept across everyone present. He said with a slur, “Die...Die..All of you shall die!"
People felt despair. They had attacked at the cost of falling a cultivation realm, yet it was ineffective against such an enemy. They had lost all morale.
The Black-armored Demon God suddenly looked at Jiang Xiaorou.
His gaze was surging with a hint of greed.
"Blood... give your blood to me!"
The Black-armored Demon God stretched out his hand with the revealed bone. He wanted to grab Jiang Xiaorou and suck her dry of her blood so as to recover his strength!
The Black-armored Demon God was very close to collapsing!
Upon seeing this scene, Yi Yun shouted from high up in the sky. His actual body held the pure Yang broken sword, while the Thousand Snow flying sabers were circulating around the Draco First True Gold avatar!
He and his avatar each wielded sword and saber weapons respectively, as they transformed into a gold and pale gold energy stream.
Sword and saber beams poured down from the sky!
At this moment, Yi Yun consumed all his energy and decided to go for broke, risking his life all on it!
An angry growl, that sounded like a primordial beast, roared from the Black-armored Demon God's chest. It did not sound anything like what a human could produce.
The terrifying sound waves burst out in all directions, as the magma lake exploded!
The Black-armored Demon God had already lost his lance, so he clenched his fist and punched at Yi Yun!
"Kill! Kill! Kill!"
The Black-armored Demon God punched at Yi Yun at the risk of falling apart!
Although it was a strike from a spent force, with him using all his strength, the power was comparable to him attacking with his lance from before!
No one could withstand the Black-armored Demon God's direct blow!
However, at this moment, Yi Yun remained resolute and appeared to have no fear!
The saber and sword beams collided with the Black-armored Demon God's fist beam!
The magma began to churn as the land cratered once again. A terrifying shock wave radiated out, leaving destruction in its wake.
The immense recoil caused Yi Yun's arms to fracture!
Yi Yun's right hand, which was holding to his sword, was now bending in a peculiar angle. However, the fist's momentum did not decrease, and slammed straight at Yi Yun's sternum!
And at that instant, the Draco First True Gold avatar flashed in front of Yi Yun, withstanding most of the impact for Yi Yun.
Even so, Yi Yun's sternum fractured, damaging his heart and lungs. If not for the Draco First True Gold avatar, Yi Yun would probably have died right there and then!
Yi Yun flew backwards as he spat out a mouthful of blood!
His sword had tapped on the Black-armored Demon God's forehead, while the avatar's saber had stabbed at the Black-armored Demon God's heart.
The combined attack of the 999 flying sabers may have lacerated the Black-armored Demon God's heavily damaged body, but it still failed to penetrate his body.
As for the pure Yang broken sword, the wound left behind by the strike was even shallower. The defensive strength of the Black-armored Demon God's skull was much stronger than his chest muscles.
"You can't kill me!"
The Black-armored Demon God was in a frenzied state. On his forehead, the spot, where Yi Yun pricked with his sword, did not have much blood flowing out. However, strangely, there was a strand of black gas condensing around it, before it slowly sank into the wound...
This strand of black gas seemed to be even more sinister than the Black-armored Demon God's killing aura...
