As Keressa said, the yuan crystals were indeed a bit troublesome to mine. The part attached to the meteorite was extremely strong. Once it was separated from the meteorite, the color and energy of the yuan crystal would gradually weaken, and finally become a useless crystal.
Strangely, the yuan crystal gradually regained its original brilliance soon after it was in the hands of Keressa.
Chen Rui could sense that Keressa had infused a little kingdom’s vitality into it, and he immediately understood: The dimness of the yuan crystal should be a kind of ‘dormant’ state, and it needs to rely on the kingdom’s vitality to survive. No wonder the ancient alchemy civilization regarded the yuan crystal as the life yuan.
After getting the yuan crystal, Chen Rui took out a tool platform and activated the magic circle of the tool platform with the reason of silence. Everyone could only see the vague shadows. They couldn’t see the real movements inside.
Chen Rui took this opportunity to enter the refinery of the Super System, and activated the time law. He tried to inject the vitality of the [Galaxy Kingdom] into the yuan crystal one by one. No doubt, the yuan crystal which gained vitality quickly regained its radiance. He placed them in the storage warehouse.
The next step was the real crafting process. After the blurring magic circle was withdrawn, one after another strange items appeared in front of everyone.
A very simple bracelet inlaid with several yuan crystals looked unremarkable. The only thing that was special was that the power emitted by this yuan crystal was extremely refined, which was far better than the ordinary yuan crystal. Perhaps it was the accessory buff effect.
The question was whether such a simple accessory could resist that terrifying force?
Everyone’s eyes showed expressions of disbelief. Keressa’s eyes were filled with a strong murderous aura. The spirit power firmly locked Chen Rui and planned to kill him at any time. As a leader, if she was tricked, where would her prestige be?
Chen Rui looked calm as he took out a bracelet and put it on his hand. The bracelet suddenly emitted a bright circle of light, and the light seemed to spread to his body.
Keressa frowned and put on a bracelet. After the light circle formed, no doubt she felt that the original double strength loss was reduced a lot. Not only that, there was also a strong echo between the light circles, forming a loop that constantly canceled the eroding strange forces. The more people there were, the stronger the loop would be. It was like a giant net which would resist the eroding power. Although there were some leaks, it felt much better than before.
“The yuan crystal inlaid on the bracelet is the high-concentration yuan crystal that I compressed with a special instrument. All the yuan crystals have been exhausted just now. You should have seen the effect of this magic circle, the only disadvantage is that the yuan crystals are consumables. These can only last for about 2 hours. Once exhausted, new crystals must be added. So, if we encounter the yuan crystal minerals along the way, I hope to continue collecting; the more the better.”
The last sentence was obviously addressed to Keressa. Although Keressa’s suspicions were not completely dissipated, the effect of the mobile magic circle was in front of her eyes. She couldn’t help but believe it. I didn’t expect ‘Richard’ to be more useful than I imagined. He is actually proficient in magic circles and mechanic skills. It really alleviates the big problem of the strange power invasion and strength loss.
In this environment, being useful meant living longer. The medusa put away the killing intent and looked at Chen Rui with a little more importance in her gaze as she nodded. Anyway, these yuan crystals were just like a waste without the vitality of the kingdom that she infused, so she was not worried that this mere Kingdom level guy would play any tricks.
Unfortunately, Keressa didn’t know that this mere ‘Kingdom’ level guy had a kingdom vitality and faith power that were stronger than her countless times.
Relying on the strength of the ‘team’, Chen Rui had more and more yuan crystals on hand. Whether it was used to upgrade the life crystals of the ancient refinery civilization or to manufacture the core crystals for game control, it was already more than enough. Considering the exhaustion of the mobile magic circle, Chen Rui did not reject Keressa’s ‘kindness’ and continued to hoard the yuan crystals.
This Lost Land was boundless with no sun or moon, and other lives; it was dead silence. Judging from the timing item, everyone should have been flying for 3 full days, but they hadn’t found the exit the ‘Blazing White Way’ as per Sariel’s ‘data’.
Although it had only been 3 days, the environment here was unpredictable, and potential dangers might erupt at any time. Even if they had Chen Rui’s magic accessory, they must maintain the highest level of vigilance while maintaining the protective power. The previous Demon Overlord Chloe who asked Keressa about the yuan crystal was too tired and didn’t notice the abnormality under his feet. As a result, he exploded together with the meteorite and turned into ashes. Even if he had the ability of [Regeneration], it would not help. Now there were only 12 people left in the team.
A gray cloud appeared in front, and it seemed to be slowly getting bigger. Chen Rui only glanced at it a few times, and sensed that his vision seemed to be distorted by a special power.
Keressa’s eyesight was the best, and her facial expression suddenly changed, “It’s a space storm! Get out of the way!”
Everyone was shocked. The cloud that ‘slowly’ grew bigger was actually a huge storm moving at a high speed! This world was not like the outside world. Even a super powerhouse was in danger of dying at any time in the face of a space storm similar to the power of nature. The best way was to retreat and avoid it.
The group hurriedly flew horizontally with all their strength in an attempt to avoid the storm. However, the speed of the huge storm was extremely alarming. Before everyone could fly to the edge, the storm was unavoidably approaching.
Different from the imagined devour power, this storm actually erupted outward. Countless meteorites or substances were madly blasted outward like fountains. Many of them still carried flame-like high temperatures, dragging long smoke like a meteor.
The protective net made by the magic accessories was instantly torn apart by the massive power of the storm, and the intangible force threw everyone out.
The Demon Overlord Thursfield, who was once defeated by Zola, felt pain in his ribs as if a sharp cone drilled into his ribs. In an instant, he was struck many times, and even the armor that protected the soft spots was almost pierced through.
It turned out that the substances that erupted in the storm were very terrifying in terms of speed and strength like a cannon that continuously launched an attack. Even a small piece of dust could cause terrifying damage under this terrifying eruption.
Thursfield majored in magic, but his body’s toughness had reached the peak stage of the Demon Overlord. He even activated protective magic, but he was still barely able to resist this terrifying eruption.
The rest of the crowd had also been impacted at different levels. In comparison, several super powerhouses were much better. Chen Rui’s body was extremely strong and tough, plus the passive skills of the Super System, even if he didn’t wear that Mystic Jade Armor, the normal projectile couldn’t pierce through his skin defense either.
Chen Rui stabilized his body while dodging the huge meteorite. The first impression of this ‘erupting’ storm was a ‘white hole’.
A white hole was an imaginary hole in outer space from which energy, stars and other astronomical objects emerged or burst. It was the exact opposite of the all-devouring black holes. There was no doubt that this storm should be a force field similar to the principle of white holes.
Chen Rui suddenly remembered the Blazing White Way described in Sariel’s information. With a move in his mind, he used the power of the Evil Pupil to look into the storm. No doubt, he faintly saw faint white luminous spots, which should be the source of the projectiles. Just as he was about to speak, Keressa’s voice sounded in his head, “The Blazing White Way!”
The Blazing White Way to exit the Lost Land! Everyone’s spirits were lifted, and they heard Keressa’s voice in their mind, “The Blazing White Way is in the center of the storm. Immediately rush into the storm with all your strength!”
Everyone reacted in unison as they channeled out strength to rush toward the storm.
The repelling strength of the storm was very strong, and the weaker people were blown away before they could get close. However, they still charged forward one after another without concealing their strength because if they could not exit, even if they did not encounter any danger, sooner or later they would run out of strength and be annihilated by the strange forces of the Lost Land.
Chen Rui was the second to charge into the storm after Keressa. This storm was much bigger than it looked from the outside with all kinds of substances shooting out of it. It was almost an independent small space. The luminous spots in front had become clear, and the projectiles turned into rapid light beams. The closer he was to the core, the more terrifying the speed and strength of the projectiles.
In the previous battles, Chen Rui had used the [Star Devouring] similar to the black hole many times. Especially Shura who originated from destruction could also merge himself with the black hole to exert more mighty power. The ‘white hole’ in front of him gave Chen Rui the opposite feeling. It was not ‘destruction’, but ‘creation’.
At that time, when Chen Rui completely defeated Shura, he used the comprehension of creation. After the destruction reaches the extreme, it is the beginning of a new life. This feeling is very subtle, like what I saw that night when I was holding my beloved woman… Dawn.
The omen of danger made Chen Rui recover his senses from the subtle mood immediately. There was a flash of light in front of him. He suddenly felt a heat on his face, and his face was bleeding, which meant that his body strength could no longer resist the launched attack.
Immediately afterward, more dangerous warning omens surged in his mind. Chen Rui threw his fist without hesitation, and a 5-meter-high meteorite shattered in front of him. The fragments flew backward like lightning, and many fragments still hit Chen Rui’s body, causing more injuries on him. This was even despite his reaction was quick. Otherwise, at such a high speed, once he was hit, he would be seriously injured.
Chen Rui didn’t dare to neglect. A defensive shield appeared around his body. His hand made a blade shape, showing a faint light as he drew arcs one by one and continuously slashed out. The use of force was very clever. It was not a straight line attack, but the impact force was diverted diagonally to the rear. The materials that were approaching were either smashed or knocked away.
At this point, the crowd was quite close to the core. The repulsive force was getting greater and greater, and the white luminous spot in front had quickly magnified. No doubt, it was a circular light door similar to an exit – Blazing White Way.
A Demon Overlord named Blanco couldn’t dodge in time, and was hit hard by a fast-moving meteor. His entire body was torn apart. Blanco wasn’t dead yet, so he channeled all his power and used the [Regeneration] power given by Sariel to the extreme. However, the impact was too strong. As soon as his body started to heal, it disintegrated at a faster speed. In the end, he turned into countless broken limbs that blasted away…
A Demon Overlord not far behind was very unfortunate as his head was hit by a broken limb flying at a terrifying speed. Both eyes were in severe pain, so he couldn’t see for a while. With a slight neglect, his chest was pierced through by a sharp object. As soon as the cry of help was shouted halfway, the countless rubble that rushed over passed through his body. He lost his strength and was quickly knocked back. His body was even grinned to pieces before even flying out of the storm.
At this time, there were only 10 people left in the team, and most of them were severely injured, especially the loss of strength was huge. Because the repulsive force was too large, everyone could barely hold on while avoiding the launched attack. They, including Keressa, could no longer fly forward.
“We must create a gap for the repulsive power, otherwise we cannot enter the light door!” Keressa’s figure appeared in the back. Her whole body was charging with a powerful strength, and her voice sounded in everyone’s mind, “I need some time to activate my kingdom! You all launch your most powerful move together now!”
Now, there was not much time to think about it. Everyone hesitated for a while, and all kinds of lights attacked forward. However, the core repulsion of the Blazing White Way was extremely powerful. Even the lights generated by the attacks were twisted when they were close to the light door.
But the reaction force generated at this moment had given Keressa enough activation time. The ‘cloak’ on her body with countless holes spread out and turned into infinitely elongated hair, merging with the space. The entire surrounding light suddenly dimmed.
The 2 Demon Overlords, who suffered the most injuries, suddenly trembled, and their bodies quickly dried up as if all their flesh and blood were quickly drained. A few people with good eyesight could see that the snake-like hairs were withdrawing from their bodies.
Without a doubt, the vitality of the 2 Demon Overlords was drained by Keressa.
At the same time, the breath of life on Keressa suddenly became richer, and her eyes turned into snake-like vertical pupils. They emitted a strange light that spread forward. Wherever the light passed, the shining light shone from the ‘white hole’ quickly dimmed. In the blink of an eye, except for Keressa and the rest, everything turned dark gray and petrified!
This terrifying [Petrify] was not only aimed at ordinary life or ordinary substance, but even the entire space seemed to be solidified.
Taking advantage of this momentary stagnation, everyone rushed toward the Blazing White Way without hesitation and soon disappeared into the white light door.
Almost at the next moment, the solidified dark gray exploded, and countless rushing white lights filled the entire space. The 2 solidified corpses that were stagnant in the space were disintegrated under the powerful impact of the light.
