Library Of Heaven's Path Chapter 2256
2256 The Epitome Monarch Pill Appears!
Ao Feng suddenly felt his mind blanking out entirely, reaching a state of absolute emptiness. So, this was what that would happen when the string of rationality in one’s head finally snapped.
Those comets flying around the area were supposed to harness boundless might, were they not?
Why would such a situation happen?
“It looks like those comets have been enchanted and tamed” Luo Qiqi also gulped in shock.
“Enchanted? But he only entered the Lake of Comets a short moment ago I don’t get it! How is this even possible?” Ao Feng’s cheeks were twitching wildly, a reflection of the state of his brain.
God Kings possessed the ability to bestow spirit to objects, and he was able to do the same. However, he would need to spend a great deal of time and effort, possibly several months while draining him both mentally and physically, in order to do so
Yet, the young man was able to enchant so many comets within like two minutes? Three minutes?
Not to mention, he had even managed to tame all of them!
What was even more shocking was how lively the young man was despite all of that. It was as if what he had just done was no big deal and did not take a toll on him at all!
While the two of them were still in shock, the young man in the Lake of Comets leaped forward toward his next comet, and upon touching it, the trail of comets following him would increase by one. Just like that, the line of comets grew longer and longer
In the blink of an eye, more than half of the comets in the lake were following Zhang Xuan.
“What is Elder Zhang doing by taming those comets?” Ao Feng muttered weakly.
Bruh, aren’t you here to find the Epitome Monarch Pill?
What are you toying with those comets for then?
“I guess he’s trying to get the Epitome Monarch Pill to appear,” Luo Qiqi deduced.
“Ah!” Ao Feng exclaimed. “The Epitome Monarch Pill is able to morph into a pill and hide from the eyes of even the strongest experts. If it’s hiding among the comets, biding its time to launch a sneak attack, it would be difficult for even someone as powerful as Elder Zhang to guard against it. So, by taming all the comets, he will be able to seal off the hiding spots of the Epitome Monarch Pill. It is a good plan! Why didn’t I think of it beforehand?”
Once the surroundings had been cleaned up, there would be no place for the Epitome Monarch Pill to hide anymore. That would make it much easier for them to deal with it.
“He’s the kind of person who is always able to find unique ways out of difficult predicaments,” Luo Qiqi said with a smile.
“Who dares ruin my home? You are asking to be killed!”
While those two were speaking, loud rumbling echoed in the air, and the entire Lake of Comets suddenly began shaking. Following that, a massive face suddenly appeared in midair.
“A God Monarch?” Luo Qiqi narrowed her eyes in shock.
She had seen Fairy Linglong using this ability before. It was an ability unique to the God Monarchs.
“That’s the Epitome Monarch Pill! How could this be? Even though the Flooding Sea is rich in resources, it shouldn’t have been that easy It actually managed to make a breakthrough in its cultivation. Does that mean that it’s a real God Monarch now?” Ao Feng mumbled in disbelief.
Luo Qiqi shook her head in incredulity as she asked, “But don’t God Monarchs have to govern a certain region or receive the Anima of Yearning from countless people in order to successfully ascend? How can a pill manage to do it?”
In order to become a full-fledged God Monarch, one had to be recognized by countless people to receive a boundless amount of Anima of Yearning to pull off the breakthrough.
For example, in order to become a real God Monarch, Kong shi had challenged the Nine God Monarchs one after another to receive the recognition from the people in the Firmament.
How could a mere pill that had not gone through anything at all possibly become a God Monarch?
Ao Feng pondered for a moment before replying. “It could be because we are in the Flooding Sea and not the Firmament.”
“Flooding Sea and not the Firmament?” Luo Qiqi pondered over those words for a moment before nodding in realization.
The Flooding Sea used to be from the Firmament, but it had torn away from it. As such, a different set of laws might apply there as opposed to the Firmament.
“Furthermore, the Heaven Subjugation Monarch made a breakthrough here before returning to the Firmament to challenge the Nine God Monarchs and receive the recognition of the Firmament,” Ao Feng said.
“It’s just that I find it a little weird. The gap between a Conferred God King and a God Monarch is humongous, such that in the entire history of the Firmament, the only one who’s managed to bridge the gap was the Heaven Subjugation Monarch. The Epitome Monarch Pill is ultimately just a pill, so how did it manage to do it?”
Such thoughts were shared by the young man standing in the middle of the Lake of Comets.
Even Zhang Xuan was unable to summon a massive face in the sky with his current prowess. One would have to possess a deep understanding of spatial laws to pull that off.
Could the Epitome Monarch Pill have succeeded in making a breakthrough?
A feat that countless cultivators had attempted and failed at was actually achieved by a mere pill.
“No, that’s not right. It’s the special environment of the Lake of Comets that allowed it to do so”
Zhang Xuan spread his Spiritual Perception around the area, and soon, he realized the secret behind the massive face.
It was not that the Epitome Monarch Pill had managed to become a God Monarch. Rather, it had lived in the Lake of Comets for so long that it had gained full control over the area.
If the Lake of Comets was a dominion, the Epitome Monarch Pill would be its master. It could manipulate the spiritual energy within this space freely to form whatever it wanted to.
“You wish to kill me? The least you can do is reveal your main body. This mere will of yours doesn’t seem to have the strength to do so,” Zhang Xuan said before flicking his finger lightly.
The massive face in the sky shattered into pieces.
It did not take long for yet another massive face to appear in the sky. It glared at Zhang Xuan furiously, but the young man simply shattered it easily with another flick of his finger before returning to taming the comets.
His main goal there was to find the Epitome Monarch Pill and make a breakthrough to the God Monarch realm with it. He did not intend to pull any punches in dealing with it.
Besides, based on what he had heard from Ao Feng, it appeared that the Epitome Monarch Pill had killed quite a few God Kings and Conferred God Kings over the past few decades.
After the massive face had been shattered twice by Zhang Xuan, the space in the Lake of Comets began to distort, and a young man finally materialized. He shared the same appearance as the massive face, hairless and ferocious.
“You darned brat. I gave you a chance, didn’t I? You’re the one who pushed your luck!”
Zhang Xuan immediately felt as if his body was bound by some force. The young man was manipulating the gravitational field in order to seal his movements.
At the same time, the young man dashed forward and launched palm thrust to crush Zhang Xuan.
“You aren’t a true God Monarch yet” Zhang Xuan heaved a sigh of relief.
While his fighting prowess far exceeded that of other Conferred God Kings, he could not yet deal with a real God Monarch.
Although the Epitome Monarch Pill had managed to become the master of the Lake of Comets, it was still some way off from becoming a God Monarch. As such, it was unable to fully tap into the energies of the Firmament or the Flooding Sea, thus limiting its strength.
In other words, the Epitome Monarch Pill was not a threat to Zhang Xuan.
“Go!” Zhang Xuan beckoned with a wave of his hand.
The comets that were following behind him immediately charged forth like a long, soaring dragon to crash right into the young man.
The sudden charge of so many enchanted comets created a massive compression in the space of the Lake of Comets, causing countless dimension rifts to appear in the area. The young man’s palm strike was nothing compared to the force coming from the charge of the comets, causing him to be overpowered right away.
Just as Ao Feng thought, the Epitome Monarch Pill was initially hiding among the comets, and it was intending to secretly sneak up on Zhang Xuan to launch a surprise assault. But never in its wildest imagination could it have fathomed that someone would be able to tame all the comets so quickly and even use them against it.
It felt so infuriated that it could just blow up on the spot!
At the same time, it could not help but wonder in bewilderment
Are all Conferred God Kings this frightening nowadays?
