Ye Xiwen looked in the direction of the central hall again. Five powerful burning corpses were wandering in the middle of the hall. Their glaring scarlet eyes were scary.
Ye Xiwen secretly evaluated his circumstances at the bottom of his heart. Scarlet Thunder Immortal and E Ying were both superior to Bi Chen’s level. Although all of them were Transcendent Realm Fifth Level Peak, there was a stark difference in strength.
Like Wang Feiyun and Wang Mengyu, they were in the same realm, but their strengths were vastly different.
Sure enough, Ye Xiwen had a deep grudge with Scarlet Thunder Immortal and E Ying. Seemingly, there would be an inevitable clash with the opponent!
These people gathered here to break in the palace gates guarded by these zombies and enter the palace.
Evidently, there was something in this palace that attracted the crowd.
Ye Xiwen suddenly remembered a Fire Spiritual Pool at the central palace was marked on the map.
This Fire Spiritual Pool had extraordinary abilities. Legend said that it was a pool filled with flame. Once every interval, this pool would spew out countless flames, which would subsequently condense into flame essence. Needless to say, the flame essence was a valuable treasure for those cultivating fire attribute martial techniques. If one were to swallow it, then he would have his fire affinity boosted.
For them, they could ascend their cultivation realm in a short time with no ramifications. Moreover, the Fire Spiritual Pool would spew many treasures as the Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion palace group opened.
Someone had realized that and took control of the place. Over time, that place became the foundation, and an elite sect was formed.
The crowd’s goal was apparent – the Fire Spiritual Pool in the main hall. Entering it would not be an easy feat. The five burning corpses guarding the place were alerted. Their gazes reflected their vigilance to the surrounding warriors. If they were not confined here, Ye Xiwen assumed all of them would have rushed out. They would not be merely roaring at the palace gate.
The five burning corpses exuded a frightening aura. The worst two of them had the Transcendent Realm Sixth Level’s strength, which was higher than the warrior who came. The burning corpse, taller than the others, took the lead; the corpse leader was at Transcendent Realm Eighth Level. Worse still, there were two of the corpses at Transcendent Realm Seventh Level. For these warriors, it was undoubtedly a significant obstacle. Rushing into the palace would not be a simple matter.
The Transcendent Realm Seventh Level burning corpse could slap a person into pieces.
This was also the reason why those warriors hesitated because the opposing zombies were too scary.
However, as time passed, more than two hundred warriors gathered at the entrance of this hall. All of whom were experts above the Transcendent Realm Third Level. There were Transcendent Realm Fifth Level Peak experts, including Scarlet Thunder Immortal, Qi Dong, Yao Qian, etc.
“Let’s rush in. If we don’t rush in, we will never have a chance again when the Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion is closed!”
A warrior with blood-shot eyes suggested. The Fire Spiritual Pool was too tempting. They had turned a blind eye to the threat of the burning corpses. More than two hundred experts have gathered on the scene. At this time, there was still some hope to rush in.
Everyone thought they could go in by a fluke. Probably, these burning corpses would be busy dealing with others, and not them.
“Yesterday, I saw that Unparalleled Sword and Crown Prince Crocodile had already rushed in first with no news of them anymore. Maybe, they have harvested all the benefits. If we don’t rush in, then there is no chance!” A warrior incited.
“That’s right. We can’t let them take away everything good. We don’t have much time. If we dawdle further, we will lose this opportunity!” The others echoed.
These people couldn’t help it anymore. Seeing that the Crown Prince Crocodile or Unparalleled Sword would harvest all the flame essence from the Fire Spiritual Pool, how could they still be able to bear it?
“Let’s rush in. We Vanishing Shadow Poisonous Crocodile Clan will treat you kindly!” E Ying took the initiative. He was already unable to bear it.
Crown Prince Crocodile had preempted him to enter the core palace. No more news of him since then. Certainly, E Ying would not think that Crown Prince Crocodile was dead. Although he did not want to admit it, Crown Prince Crocodile was relatively fortunate. He would not die easily in this place.
Since he was already a step slower, Crown Prince Crocodile would monopolize everything if he did not go in now. At that time, the gap between Crown Prince Crocodile and him would only get bigger and bigger. This was something that he absolutely could not tolerate. After all, he deemed Crown Prince Crocodile as his rival.
Crown Prince Crocodile must not develop further. I can’t just watch this happening idly.
He had to take the lead first. He was outmatched to Crown Prince Crocodile, who was capable of rushing in directly. If he were to rush in now, those burning corpses would tear him into pieces. There would be no second chances.
The other experts at his caliber were sly. No one was willing to rush in and became cannon fodder first.
They did not want the others to reap benefits from their efforts; all of them were seemingly greedy for their gain. E Ying could only try to trick the lone wolves. Despite them being slightly weaker, they were still experts. They must not be underestimated.
Warcry came from a crowd. Two hundred warriors rushed out. After they rushed out, the others couldn’t help it anymore and followed suit. No one wanted to be left behind. Those at the last would not acquire the flame essence from the Fire Spiritual Pool, which was why they were here.
Most importantly, the Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion would not open indefinitely. It would be closed soon. They must all go out before the Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion closes. Otherwise, they would be stuck here for countless years, which was intolerable to them.
After someone took the lead for a while, everyone couldn’t help it. The massive crowd rushed towards that hall, including those at E Ying’s caliber.
The two hundred warriors were elites in the Transcendent Realm. Their dashing speed spread out a hefty air current. They were like the calvaries on the battlefield, penetrating the defense line of these five burning corpses directly.
Ye Xiwen just followed behind these people and rushed in without revealing his superior speed.
At this time, everyone had only one thought. I need to rush in, and I can’t slow down. Once that happens, the burning corpses will target me straight away.
Ye Xiwen had just entered the palace and saw a few warriors with slower speed fallen in the burning corpses’ grasp. The sharp claws proclaimed these warriors’ death on the spot. Agonizing screams accompanied the burning process of their bodies into ashes. The burning corpses absorbed the deceased’s blood essence. The scene was terrifying, sending chills to the witnesses’ spine.
However, their deaths also bought enough time for the other warriors ahead. This was also the goal of the warriors in the crowd. They were all hoping that the others suffered a terrible death instead of them.
The human’s greed vividly manifested at this time.
But, at this moment, Ye Xiwen saw E Ying and Yao Qian, who took the lead, almost instantly, rushing through the five burning corpses’ defense line.
Their strength was the most tyrannical among the crowd. They were abusing the individual cultivators to drag the burning corpses behind and rushed into the hall in that time window.
When the burning corpses saw someone rushing over, they became frenzied. But, they were still helpless to it. The other warriors were slowing the burning corpses down.
If these burning corpses decided to pursue them, more people would be able to come in. Their only remaining intelligence made them furious at this time.
When the burning corpses of Transcendent Realm Sixth Level became frenzied, each warrior close to them was killed in one move.
But even so, there were still more than a dozen people who followed E Ying and rushed directly into the hall. Without exception, they were all the best among Transcendent Realm Fifth Level Peak. Among the 200 warriors, they belonged to the top.
After experiencing the initial chaos, these five burning corpses slowly regained their initiative. The flawed defense line soon recovered. It became more difficult for the warriors to rush in.
At this time, many warriors were in despair. Under the joint defense of these burning corpses, they were helpless. They did not have the absolute strength of the Transcendent Realm Fifth Level Peak warriors to rush in. At this time, they could only fight and retreat towards the outside of the hall.
At this moment, a cyan figure rushed in at a terrifying speed, surpassing most people instantly. He ran towards a burning corpse at the Transcendent Realm Sixth Level.
The warriors who went in all challenged the burning corpse at Transcendent Realm Sixth Level. Opponents at Transcendent Realm Seventh Level and Transcendent Realm Eight Heaven were too overwhelming; they couldn’t breach the defense line that way.
The burning corpse went furious. It intended to slap Ye Xiwen to death. To his surprise, the cyan figure stopped in mid-air, barely avoiding the approaching ghostly claw. With another leap, he penetrated the defense line directly.
