Chapter 579 – The Terrifying Ghost Corpse Cursed Array
“The first step is complete.”
Zhao Feng let out a breath and was slightly happy.
He was correct. Normal attacks like his Purple Destruction Wind Lightning or the skeletal Division Leader’s power of Death and Yin couldn’t handle the sticky liquid, but everything in the world had a nemesis. There was no such thing as perfection.
For example, Zhao Feng’s Void s.p.a.ce Eye Slash was countered by the limitless ocean whale’s size, and the whale’s acid was countered by Zhao Feng’s Ice Bloodline. After being sealed in ice, the acid lost all of its effectiveness.
“Luckily, my bloodline has become purer over the last half a year, and the Ice Imperial Spear can release more coldness now.”
Zhao Feng felt lucky. All of this was because of the aura from the Ancient Dream Realm.
If he used his bloodline power right after he left the Purple Saint Ruins, it would be difficult to seal the acid inside a hundred yards in ice.
Once the sticky liquid came within the radius of the ice layer, it would lose its ability to move.
The center of the ice zone was the Blue Lightning Sea Sky s.h.i.+p. Although the Blue Lightning Sea Sky s.h.i.+p’s materials were extremely tough and it had a protective array, the people within the s.h.i.+p were still affected.
Loulan Zhishui and company hiccupped, and it felt as if their blood was going to freeze.
Furthermore, this was just the slightest remnant of the cold. It couldn’t even be considered part of the attack itself. From this, one could see how much stronger Zhao Feng’s bloodline power and Ice Imperial Spear were.
“Master, everything’s surrounded by ice….”
The skeletal Division Leader cursed. Even its body started to stiffen.
From Ice to Water!
Zhao Feng smiled and used his bloodline power to transform the inner layer of ice into water.
The power of the water was then reabsorbed by his bloodline.
The center of the ice surrounding the s.h.i.+p was hollowed out as a part of it was melted.
The skeletal Division Leader could guess Zhao Feng’s next step.
Now that a part of the ice had disappeared, they had a layer of s.p.a.ce.
“The second step; set up the array.”
Zhao Feng used his bloodline power to maintain the ice while the skeletal Division Leader set up the array.
The skeletal Division Leader waved the black flag and a hundred cursed ghost-corpses appeared above the s.h.i.+p.
A dark mist radiating a sky-shaking curse spread. Even those at the half-step Origin Core Realm would be threatened if they touched the slightest bit of it.
Zhao Feng ordered.
This was the true form of the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array.
The maximum range it could spread was five or six miles.
The skeletal Division Leader controlled the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array and condensed it to within a couple dozen yards, otherwise it would destroy the ice.
“Direct the curse.”
Zhao Feng’s eyes flashed as he ordered once more.
The skeletal Division Leader’s eyes lit up; it knew which method Zhao Feng was going to use to deal with the whale.
Withered white hands jumped out from the dark mist. These b.l.o.o.d.y, withered white hands couldn’t be seen by the naked eye, and they were extremely hard to detect with Spiritual Sense. They were like phantoms.
Everyone within the s.h.i.+p felt a coldness in their soul.
The skeletal Division Leader waved the black flag, and thousands upon thousands of withered white hands grabbed toward the organs of the whale.
The strange thing was that the power of the curse was based in the soul dimension and didn’t affect the ice.
Thousands and thousands of b.l.o.o.d.y white hands grasped through the ice and consumed the blood and flesh of the whale.
“So, this is the power of the curse.”
Zhao Feng’s G.o.d’s Spiritual Eye could see the power of the curse.
Under normal situations, the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array had been using the power of the ghost-corpses and their hatred. This was the Ghost Corpse Cursed Power.
Currently, it was a true, pure curse.
The power of the curse affected the target directly and was invisible.
Back at the Azure Flower Continent, if a True Spirit Realm expert entered the Forbidden Ground of a Hundred Graves and was touched by the power of the curse, the curse would still be on them even if they retreated.
This time, the skeletal Division Leader channeled this even-stronger curse into the organs of the whale.
The ten-mile-long whale roared deeply and started to shake.
It was obvious that the whale started to feel uncomfortable, but the “problem” seemed to be coming from its internal organs so there was nothing it could do.
“After being attacked by the power of the curse, the affected being will start to continuously lose their lifeforce.”
Zhao Feng inspected how the power of the curse attacked.
If normal experts were caught by the curse, their lifespan would decrease if they didn’t just die immediately. This meant that the power of the curse ate lifeforce and decreased the opponent’s lifespan.
The withered white hands became even more b.l.o.o.d.y after consuming the flesh and blood of the whale.
“Zhe zhe…. Even a Great Origin Core Realm expert wouldn’t be able to last very long if the power of the Hundred Corpse Curse was activated within their body.”
The skeletal Division Leader laughed. It and Zhao Feng stood on the deck and didn’t dare to touch the power of the curse.
The limitless ocean whale howled and caused the ocean to toss and turn. The “problem” within its body was starting to eat its organs.
What was more terrifying was that the curse was limitless. There was no escape once infected.
The whale was still struggling an hour later, but its aura and resistance had weakened.
“It’s indeed worthy of being a major figurehead in the ocean. Its lifeforce is incredibly strong. Normal Great Origin Core Realms would have died long ago if the power of the curse spread within their body.”
Zhao Feng couldn’t help but sigh.
At this moment in time, the curse had caused the whale to enter a weakened state.
“Avoid the heart.”
Zhao Feng said.
Through the inspection of his G.o.d’s Spiritual Eye, he gave a map of the whale’s organs to the skeletal Division Leader.
The skeletal Division Leader directed the curse to vital organs but avoided the heart.
“The heart blood essence is the most valuable treasure from a limitless ocean whale. The heart blood essence can raise one’s state of existence and has the ability to transform one anew….”
Zhao Feng’s eyes twinkled. He was still thinking about the heart blood essence.
One had to know that the strength of this whale surpa.s.sed normal Great Origin Core Realms, and its state of being was only below that of a Void G.o.d Realm’s.
The power of the curse kept eroding the energy and soul of the whale, and Zhao Feng could sense that the body of the whale was starting to wither as its life was sucked away.
The whale thrashed around in the ocean and occasionally popped out on the surface. Its problem had made it go insane.
Half a day later, the limitless ocean whale was still struggling, but its aura was much weaker than before.
“Master, the body of the whale is too big. A normal Great Origin Core Realm would have died dozens of times already. Killing it will probably take a couple more days.”
The skeletal Division Leader said, and Zhao Feng’s eyebrows furrowed.
He was scared that more limitless ocean whales would be attracted, but luckily, the whale had gone insane and lost its sense of direction.
On the limitless ocean:
A gray s.h.i.+p in the shape of a shark sped across the ocean.
“Limitless ocean whale!”
“This one is enormous. It’s probably not a normal limitless ocean whale.”
Dozens of figures appeared on the s.h.i.+p. Each of these figures had a bloodthirsty aura, and the leader was a nasty-looking male in silver who was looking at the whale uncertainly.
“This whale is about ten miles long. We probably wouldn’t even be able to fill the gaps in its teeth.”
The pirates looked at it with fear and respect. The aura from this beast was enough to make the hearts of normal Sovereigns shake.
“Hmm? Something’s wrong. The whale seems to have caught a disease and is struggling weakly.”
The leader inspected it with his Spiritual Sense and found that something was amiss.
After inspecting for a while:
The man in silver ordered. Although he had the cultivation of the Origin Core Realm, he was nothing against a beast of this level.
He wouldn’t be able to approach the whale with his strength, and a flip of the whale could kill them all.
The pirate s.h.i.+p soon left the whale’s location.
The limitless ocean whale struggled, but its aura was decreasing.
Half a day later, another group of experts and businessmen pa.s.sed by, but they evaded the whale when they saw it.
A powerful aura flashed through the sky and caused the Heaven Earth Yuan Qi to toss and turn.
The mist was pushed aside in front of this magnificent force.
The sky of the limitless ocean became dyed with a dark green color.
“Great Origin Core Realm!”
Zhao Feng and the skeletal Division Leader both sensed it within the body of the whale.
A few breaths later:
An elder accompanied by a male and female descended in the area.
“Limitless ocean whale!”
The eyes of the elder sparkled as his aura became stronger.
“Limitless ocean whale?”
“So, this is one of the legendary beasts of the ocean?”
The male and female were between the ages of twenty and thirty. The male was handsome while the female was pretty.
Although they were both from the younger generation, they had both reached the True Lord Rank.
“This is a one-in-a-thousand chance. The state of existence of this whale is close to the Void G.o.d Realm and even normal Great Origin Core Realm Sovereign Lords aren’t its match, but it seems to have been injured. It’s lost a lot of lifeforce and has become much weaker….”
The eyes of the elder shone.
