Chapter 317: Fighting Over a Heaven Tier Battle Skill
“It doesn’t matter what doors are blocking our way, I’ll smash them apart!” Dugu Feng strode forward and immediately struck the door fiercely with his fist.
With a muffled sound, the stone door continued to tower over everyone else with only some dust being shaken down.
At this sight, everyone was astounded. Even Dugu Feng had been stunned for a moment before muttering to himself, “Is this really a stone door?” Dugu Feng knew clearly just how much strength was put behind his fist. Even an iron door would have a hole blasted through it, but this stone door wasn’t even scratched.
“Heavens, is this really a stone door, it’s unbelievably hard!”
“This stone door was made from a stone like material, but it’s so durable!”
“This stone door definitely isn’t an ordinary one…”
Everyone began to chat among themselves.
“It doesn’t matter what it’s made from, but if it dares block our path, then it will be destroyed!” Dugu Feng spoke coldly. His right arm held the fire sword as he prepared to swing his Ruler Armament.
Upon seeing that Dugu Feng was about to use his Ruler Armament, everyone stepped back in fear of being caught in the aftermath.
The Ruler Armament in Dugu Feng’s hand began to release a great flame as he yelled. With a large swing, he smashed the sword against the stone door heavily.
“Bang!”An ear splitting sound could be heard as the entire cave shook from the blow. Everyone shook their heads in pain as they steadied themselves.
After a while, the cave grew quiet once more. Everyone’s eyes remained wide open as they looked at the stone door in shock–it continued to stand over them as if normal.
“Ju-just what was used to make this stone door, it’s really hard!” Tianmu Ling stammered as she covered her mouth with her hand in shock.
Even Dugu Feng found it hard to remain calm and was stunned. For such an ordinary looking stone door to be able to take a blow from a Ruler Armament without any damage, it was far too much to believe.
The richly dressed Qin Ji walked to the stone door and raised his hand to touch it with a calm expression. “Breaking open this door will allow us entry into the immortal’s cave, let us have all of those with a Ruler Armament strike at it at the same time. I doubt this door will be able to withstand the might of six Ruler Armaments.”
“That’s right, this is the best course of action.” Jiede Wukang spoke.
“Hahaha, okay then, big brothers. If big brothers can do the heavy work, this little girl will help out from the side. Whether or not this stone door breaks is all on you.” The girl spoke with charm as she smiled at everyone. Then stepping toward Jian Chen, she looked at him with a loving smile, “Brother Jian Chen, do you want to give it a try?”
Jian Chen shook his head with a bitter smile, “This one has no Ruler Armament so my attack would be tremendously weak. The area isn’t that wide either so it wouldn’t be able to hold that many people standing side by side. I would rather not hinder everyone else.”
As soon as Jian Chen spoke, a large animalistic roar could be heard, causing everyone in the cave to pale.
“That’s the Amethyst Thunder Lion and the sounds of footsteps, goddammit, they dared to come running here! They’re bringing the lion over! Everyone, let’s act quick!” Qin Ji yelled.
Without any hesitation, Dugu Feng, Jiede Wukang, Shi Xiangran, Qin Ji and Tianmu Ling all stood in front of the stone door. With their Ruler Armaments out, they each prepared to strike. Then, suddenly, a transparent barrier suddenly appeared and covered the people inside.
This caused Jian Chen to be shocked. He hadn’t thought that these people with Ruler Armaments would have a barrier from a Saint Ruler around them. Abruptly turning around to look at the yellow clothed girl, he could see her standing ten meters away with her bowstring pulled back completely. The only difference was that there was no barrier protecting her, but Jian Chen didn’t know whether or not she didn’t have a Saint Ruler helping her or she just wasn’t using it.
At that moment, aside from the six Ruler Armament users, everyone drew back quickly. The energy feedback from six Ruler Armaments was enough to cause harm to any Earth Saint Master.
“Attack!” With one command, all six Ruler Armament users struck out. An arrow flew ahead of the other attacks and collided into the stone door along with the fist sized Seal of Treasure Mountain while the others smashed against the door in coordination.
“Bang!” A loud sound could be heard as a large shockwave of energy exploded outward at an alarming speed. Washing over everyone while the cave itself began to shake almost as if it was on the verge of collapsing in on itself.
Jian Chen and the other Earth Saint Masters stuck close to the walls of the cave as a way to keep themselves rooted to the ground. At the same time, they used their Saint Force to enforce their bodies as a secondary form of defense.
Half a breath later, the shockwave receded to a calm as the six Ruler Armament users each were dragged back ten meters. The barriers had protected them from any harm while only the yellow clothed girl was quite pale in the face. Upon looking at the stone door, there were several cracks, but it was still not broken.
Everyone let out a shocked gasp, the stone door was far stronger than what anyone had imagined. They didn’t think that even six Ruler Armaments wouldn’t be enough for them to shatter a stone door.
What everyone could rejoice about was the durability of the immortal’s cave. Even after such a heavy blow, it still had not collapsed.
“Again!” Jiede Wukang yelled out. Immediately, the six people struck out once more for another terrifying unified attack that was stronger than the one before.
Another explosive sound could be heard as stone pieces could be seen flying about and the cave echoed with the sound. After the second strike, the unbelievably strong stone door had finally been shattered.
Even after the stone doors shattered, Dugu Feng, Jiede Wukang, Shi Xiangran, Qin Ji, and Tianmu Ling didn’t care for the aftermath of the explosion and all charged past the gates. Each one of them were protected by their barriers and weren’t worried about being damaged by anything.
Sensing their movements, Jian Chen’s eyes flashed in recognition. Immediately charging straight toward the doorway, against the energy wave, Jian Chen twisted and turned in a struggle to get past. Finally, he was able to break free of the energy wave and follow the five through the opening.
Beyond the stone gates was an empty space where none of the energy from the earlier strike could reach. Placed right on top of a high platform was a dark colored wooden box. On the outside, it looked quite ordinary and didn’t seem to be anything special.
Seeing this box, Dugu Feng, Shi Xiangran, Jiede Wukang, and Qin Ji all flew toward it without a moment of hesitation.
A cyan colored whip blew past them and in an instant, it had reached the platform and wrapped around the box before pulling it back.
The four men instantly came to a compromise with each other and struck out at the box.
As the box was smashed apart, a white leather book was sent flying into the air. As a result of the blast from the attack, the book continued to flap in the air as the pages.
Four hands simultaneously flew out to grab at the falling book in hopes of snatching it away from everyone else.
Tianmu Ling didn’t move a foot and immediately snapped her wrist, causing a part of the whip to fly at the four men. At the same time, the head of the whip flew at the book
At this moment, the four men acted as one and smashed down on the whip with their Ruler Armaments. Although the whip was also a Ruler Armament, it wasn’t able to withstand the might of four Ruler Armaments and was forced back down. The four men instantly arrived at the book and lashed out to grab it. Each hand latched onto a part of it and with a violent pull, each one tried to pull the book toward themselves.
The string binding on the book instantly tore, causing several pages of the book to fly through the air. Combined with the energy from the earlier blow on the whip, the book pages all fluttered about through the air.
Four pairs of hand zipped through the air as they collected the scattered pages. At this moment, Jian Chen suddenly appeared in a silver ray of light. Spotting two of the loose pages, he grabbed at them with lightning speed before grabbing onto another one nearby.
Dugu Feng swiftly grabbed onto another two pages as well before spotting another right next to his hand. As he lifted his hand to grab at it, suddenly, a person appeared in his line of sight. This person was Jian Chen who immediately grabbed at the piece of paper right underneath his eyes.
Dugu Feng was immediately stunned before instantly growing angry as his eyes gleamed with a murderous light.
After the small struggle for the pages, the book was quickly divided up by the six people. In the end, Tianmu Ling had two pages, Jian Chen had four, Dugu Feng had four, Jiede Wukang had three, Shi Xiangran had two, and Qin Ji had four for a total of nineteen pages.
At this moment, Shi Xiangran had already flew at Jian Chen with his barrier present while his Seal of Treasure Mountain flew at Jian Chen’s head.
“To dare kill my men, I’ll definitely kill you today!”
“No one has dared steal from me before!”
At that moment, Jiede Wukang and Dugu Feng flew at Jian Chen with their Ruler Armaments out and ready to kill him.
Qin Ji and Tianmu Ling had no plans on helping out either side. Although they had fought alongside Jian Chen, but their relationship with him wasn’t anything special. Shi Xiangran was a hated enemy of Jian Chen, Jiede Wukang had his comrade Zhe Gu die by Jian Chen’s hand, and Dugu Feng had a part of the battle skill taken away from right under his nose. Each person had a reason for fighting Jian Chen.
