Profound Meanings had nine ranks where the first rank was the weakest one, and the ninth rank the strongest!
Not all ninth rank Profound Meanings had the same function. Some Profound Meanings were more about speed, some on defense, some on supplementing attacks, while others on assault.
Ninth rank Profound Meanings had different levels of strength as well. Normally, the ninth rank Profound Meanings that had evolved from low-level ones with regard to the five elements were not particularly strong. But those related to space, time, destruction, light, and darkness could exert more influence.
It was widely acknowledged that the Profound Meanings of space and time were the most powerful of all. If a warrior could learn stronger versions of those two categories and integrate them, then the warrior would possess strong might.
Just now, the Semi-God Realm warriors had locked the target and three of them attacked. But they only hit on a shadow. The Profound Meanings contained in the move must be particularly strong to confuse a group of Semi-God Realm warriors.
What was more, the Profound Meanings contained had destructive force. It could kill off a Semi-God Realm warrior that had a Quasi Relic armor. By this rate… the Crippled Zen Master could kill anyone in an instant.
The Infinity was known not to be a very capable warrior. That being said, he was a Semi-God Realm warrior nonetheless. Usually, a Semi-God Realm warrior could not be easily killed by another one of the same realm. Hence, it could be said that the Crippled Zen Master truly deserved to be the supreme warrior of the Central Imperial Universe.
What to do?
The lunatics of the Mage Imperial Universe had lost their minds. Should they go on or leave? If they went on, how could they crack the Ancient Divine Formation? Leaving… somehow, they were unwilling to do that.
They looked at each other and then turned to the four Family Patriarchs who were discussing secretly.
After the time for an incense stick to burn, the four Family Patriarchs had reached a decision. They were going to continue!
The Relic must be obtained by the Mage Imperial Universe and not the Crippled Zen Master. Or else, the Crippled Zen Master could very likely unify the nine universes.
Why hadn’t the Crippled Zen Master made a move until just now? Why did he choose to kill the Infinity at this moment? He must be afraid that the Infinity would break down his formation.
In other words—the formation was not indestructible. If they kept going, chances of them breaking the formation down could be great.
When there was hope, naturally, they would not give up. But in order to protect themselves against the Crippled Zen Master’s attack, they decided to make due preparations.
They broke into four teams and each team had one warrior that knew Profound Meanings of defense. Those warriors would shield others if the Crippled Zen Master sneaked up on them.
They were not willing to believe that the Crippled Zen Master could kill them in one move. If he had been that strong, he would have unified the universes and wouldn’t need to fight over the Relic.
The warriors didn’t stay in midair. Instead, they landed on the ground around the mountain. Then, they began to blast at the mountain from a distance. The four Family Patriarchs had reached an agreement. They would stay here for three years. If they could not break it after three years, they would go back to the Imperial Universe.
In the Zen Valley, after the warriors of the Mage Imperial Universe split up, the Crippled Zen Master sneered and said, “Three years? If you can crack it after 300 years, I will admit that you are powerful.”
With that said, the Crippled Zen Master started cultivation. He returned to a state of statue again.
In the Wicked Bead, Lu Li was cultivating Xuan Energy, studying Profound Meaning, and dissolving the seal. However, this time, he controlled the speed of dissolving the seal and poured some Xuan Energy into his Bead of Life.
It was safe here. Yin Qingsi’s calmness had made him relax. She would not have been so composed if she was not confident about the haze formation outside.
Back in the Heaven Reverse Universe, there was some time left before the four forces would infiltrate the Northern Desert. Lu Li could afford to wait for two more years. Therefore, he wanted to take this time to enhance his realm as well.
His realm was still not high enough. Back at the Northern Desert of the Heaven Reverse Universe, the Noble Lord Realm might have been good enough, but after experiencing so many things and being pursued by the Semi-God Realm warriors, Lu Li’s aim was higher now. For him, not even the Human Sovereign Realm was worth noting now. He could somehow qualify as a powerful warrior when he reached the Earth Immortal Realm…
To achieve breakthroughs at the Noble Lord Realm, first one needed to study Profound Meanings, second to accumulate Xuan Energy, and then the third element was to have a strong Soul Pond. What was more, Mystical Materials were needed in large quantities.
Of the last thing, Lu Li had ample. His Soul Pond had been developing and had been above the standard of the peak of the Noble Lord Realm. The only thing he had to do was grow Xuan Energy. He must pour a large quantity into his Bead of Life to make it more compact so that he could later use Mystical Materials to refine and transform it.
Yin Qingsi had been cultivating and never came to disturb Lu Li. It had been quiet in the Zen Valley. With none troubling Lu Li in his cultivation, naturally, he would do his best to cultivate instead of wandering around.
Time flew. Soon, half a year passed.
If Lu Li had exerted all his efforts into dissolving the seal, the first layer of seal would have been dissolved. However, since he had been pouring some Xuan Energy into his Bead of Life, it would take him another two months to dissolve the seal completely.
The seal had not glistened again, implying that the Wicked Bead’s speed had not increased. Would the bead’s speed reach the Semi-God Realm when the first layer of seal was completely dissolved?
The situation outside the mountain never changed. A bunch of Semi-God Realm warriors blasted at the mountain with practically no rest. Neither Feng Family nor Qi Family sent anyone over. Therefore, nothing worth noticing happened.
But something was going on at the Feng Dynasty and the Qi Dynasty!
Jun Hongye and Li Family Patriarch began to retaliate. They had learned the Mage Imperial Universe had sent over many warriors, and the Crippled Zen Master was now involved.
Therefore, the two had given up on the pursuit of the Wicked Bead. They vented their anger on the major families of the Central Imperial Universe.
In six months, they launched 15 attacks!
They had been moving together. During the 15 rounds of attacks, they had killed more than 1000 Human Sovereign Realm warriors of the Central Imperial Universe, dozens of Earth Immortal Realm warriors, two Semi-God Realm warriors, and countless Noble Lord Realm warriors…
During every attack, the two would run away as soon as they successfully struck. They would hide in the mountains and the wild. Big families of the Central Imperial Universe sent out millions of scouts but they could not find the two anywhere.
Semi-God Realm warriors had particularly strong psychic powers. Noble Lord Realm and Human Sovereign Realm warriors did not have the abilities to find them. The families did not dare to send Earth Immortal Realm warriors because the only result would be that they would be murdered. They only had a certain number of Semi-God Realm warriors who could not act alone. They could not spread to all corners at once.
Feng Family, Qi Family, and the other big families of the Central Imperial Universe were in a panic. At this rate, all their powerful warriors would be killed. By the end, maybe only the oldest warriors could survive…
In the end, Feng Family and Qi Family had no other choice. They posted notices everywhere, begging the two for a truce and negotiation. The families would send the two killers away at any cost.
Notices were put up in every city. Naturally, Jun Hongye and Li Family Patriarch could see. They were almost done with venting anger, and they didn’t want to go on with the killing spree any longer. If they could gain some benefit, then they could return to their families with less shame.
They demanded an exorbitant price. They sent a letter to Feng Family Patriarch and Qi Family Patriarch, asking for priceless Mystical Materials and treasures.
The two Family Patriarchs quaked with rage. However, they could only put up new notices to bargain with the two. After 10 days, both parties finally reached an agreement. The Central Imperial Universe paid the price, and Jun Hongye and Li Family Patriarch finally agreed to cease fire.
The City of Chaos was still in the hands of the Mage Imperial Universe, but the city was free of Semi-God Realm warriors. Jun Hongye and Li Family Patriarch came to the city, facing no hindrance from the Earth Immortal Realm warriors. They were teleported into the Purgatory of Primordial Chaos.
When scouts reported that the two had gone, Qi Family and Feng Family warriors were too overwhelmed for fears. Their hatred against Lu Li grew deeper.
Because of the god of plague that was Lu Li, the Central Imperial Universe suffered. Lu Li alone led the Central Imperial Universe into catastrophe. The freaks from the Mage Imperial Universe were still here. Nobody could tell what was going to happen down the road…
