Chapter 2022 – The Beast King Appears
Chapter 2022: The Beast King Appears
As the voice rang out, an old man in brown robes silently appeared on the spaceship’s deck. He stared at the group of Soul-devouring Beasts that attacked Jian Chen’s group with quite some delight.
“The essence blood of the Soul-devouring Beast King is crucial for refining the Cloudrise Pill, while the soul of the Soul-devouring Beast King is one of the important materials for the Soul Vitality Pill. These pills are both God Tier,” the brown-robed old man murmured to himself as his eyes shone brighter and brighter.
Soul-devouring Beast Kings were extremely rare in the Saints’ World, as not only did they live in the boundless outer space, making it almost impossible to find them, but there were extremely few of them as well. Hence, it was very difficult to encounter them usually.
It would be a great fortune whenever someone found a Soul-devouring Beast King.
This was because the Soul-devouring Beast King was basically a living treasure. The two God Tier pills both required crucial ingredients from the Soul-devouring Beast King.
“Great elder, have we already arrived at the Neptunean Divine Palace?” At this moment, a middle-aged man appeared beside the old man. He behaved with respect as he looked around the surroundings in doubt.
The brown-robed old man looked at the trio trapped by the Soul-devouring Beasts and said, “There’s still some more traveling to do before we reach the Neptunean Divine Palace. However, we might be able to benefit greatly from here.”
“Benefit greatly?” The middle-aged man appeared to be puzzled. However, when he discovered the herd of Soul-devouring Beasts up ahead, his eyes immediately lit up, “With such a big herd of Soul-devouring Beasts, there must be a Soul-devouring Beast King. I never thought we’d come across such a great fortune on our way to the Neptunean Divine Palace. Great elder, if we obtain a single Soul-devouring Beast King and refine the Cloudrise Pill and Soul Vitality Pill, it’ll hold great significance to the clan.”
The great elder nodded, “That’s right. The Cloudrise Pill can increase the cultivation of people, and it’s priceless, while the Soul Vitality Pill is a God Tier pill for injuries to the soul, making it even more precious. An ancestral emperor of the eternal Sky Empire just happens to possess an injured soul, and he still hasn’t recovered yet. Once we refine the Soul Vitality Pill from the Soul-devouring Beast King’s soul and offer it to the ancestral emperor, it’ll be a great merit for our Yun family. Our status in the southern region will rise up as a result.”
The middle-aged man was clearly overjoyed as well. He said, “The great elder cannot be more correct. Our Yun family might even be able to use this opportunity to form close ties with the Sky Empire. If that really does happen, will there still be anyone in the southern region who dares to provoke our Yun family?”
Then, the middle-aged man looked at Jian Chen, Kai Ya, and master Chanlong, and a strange light flickered through his eyes. He said, “The three people encircled by the Soul-devouring Beasts possess extraordinary strength. They’re clearly Overgods, yet I can feel a presence no weaker than a Godking from two of them.”
“The young man and woman are indeed very powerful. They must be supreme Overgods on the Overgods’ Plaque, and they must rank pretty high as well. It’s just a pity that they’ve encountered a herd of Soul-devouring Beasts. These space beasts don’t possess much individual strength, but there are so many of them that it’ll just be an endless slaughter. Even Godkings can be overwhelmed by so many Soul-devouring Beast. If the three of them don’t have any methods of escape, they’ll be done for today.” The great elder nodded, “However, if it weren’t for the three of them that lured out the herd of Soul-devouring Beasts, I would not have been able to discover the Soul-devouring Beast King here. Since that’s the case, allow me to help them out so that they can break free. It’s just that there are countless more Soul-devouring Beasts hidden within the meteorite. Their existence can lure them all out, which will save me some work. I’ll be able to deal with the Soul-devouring Beast King with even less difficulty.”
The great elder did not interfere in a hurry. Instead, he observed from the deck of the silver-white spaceship.
On the other side, the trio was completely surrounded by the Soul-devouring Beasts now. At the very start, there were only around a million of them, but it had reached into the tens of millions or even over a hundred million as Soul-devouring Beasts constantly emerged from the meteorite. From afar, it truly flooded the surroundings, making it a numbing sight.
Even though the Soul-devouring Beasts were not powerful, without a single Godking appearing among them, the number was just too great for Jian Chen, Kai Ya, and master Chanlong to kill through or even break free from.
Surrounded by so many Soul-devouring Beasts, Jian Chen remained calm and sent out the senses of his soul on the contrary. He carefully observed the meteorite in the distance.
A while later, when Soul-devouring Beasts stopped flying out from the meteorite, Jian Chen understood that probably all the space beasts hidden in there had come out already.
At the same time, the light in the great elder’s eyes who stood on the deck of his spaceship shone with excitement. The time to kill the Soul-devouring Beast King had arrived.
However, just when the great elder rose up, a cold light flickered through Jian Chen’s eyes. He used the power from the ancient Skywolf’s bloodline within him and unleashed a howl.
Immediately, a proud wolf’s howl rang through the surroundings. At that moment, Jian Chen was clearly just a late Overgod, but he erupted with an extremely terrifying presence. A huge wolf seemed to appear behind him, giving off a supreme pressure, where even the celestial bodies trembled.
A terrifying sound wave in the form of a visible ripple expanded into the surroundings rapidly.
The sound wave possessed extremely terrifying power, where the countless Soul-devouring Beasts around Jian Chen were shaken to dust from it. In the blink of an eye, an area of several hundred meters across opened up around Jian Chen.
Although the Soul-devouring Beasts beyond that range had not been reduced to dust, they were still shaken to pieces.
Even though many Soul-devouring Beasts had not been torn apart in even further places, they still died to the sound wave.
In just that short period of time, over half of the countless Soul-devouring Beasts had died to Jian Chen’s howl. Although the remaining space beasts survived out of pure luck, they were all stunned as if they had lost their souls. They did not attack the three of them.
Jian Chen called out to signal to Kai Ya and master Chanlong before immediately charging out as quickly as he could. Now that no Soul-devouring Beasts pursued them, it was their only opportunity to leave this place. Once the surviving Soul-devouring Beasts recovered, they would not be able to leave again.
This was because the wolf’s howl was unleashed through the power of the ancient Skywolf’s bloodline. Now that all the power had been used up, it was impossible to use it a second time without a period of recovery.
The great elder and the middle-aged man watched on from the distance. Shock and disbelief filled their faces.
“W- what is this battle skill? How does it possess such might?” Seeing how the number of Soul-devouring Beasts had been instantly halved, the middle-aged man felt his mouth grow dry. He was completely shocked.
“What a terrifying howl,” the great elder was also shocked. He seemed to remember something afterwards, and he immediately approached the meteorite. With a single step, he crossed the vast distance and appeared on it.
As soon as Jian Chen’s group charged out from the encirclement, they discovered that a spaceship was parked silently in the distance.
The spaceship was extremely far away from where they were. Coupled with the fact that they were completely focused on dealing with the Soul-devouring Beasts, they did not sense its existence at all, nor did they sense when it had arrived.
It was also at this moment that a screech rang out from the meteorite. A Soul-devouring Beast that was three meters long and flickered with violet light flew out. It was furious, directly charging towards Jian Chen’s group.
Beside it were eight other Soul-devouring Beasts of similar sizes. They all were on par with Godkings and followed the Soul-devouring Beast King like guards.
As for the Soul-devouring Beast King, it was not weak either, having reached the peak of Godking.
