Chapter 1029: Mangled Crater Realm
“There are definitely mission a.s.signments, but most of them Are a.s.signed to apt.i.tude users that are in their first year of joining the Human Alliance. The main reason is for the expropriation of their combat energy. As for the Mangled Crater Realm… I have never heard about it before!”
Long Ting knew nothing about the realm. But she doubted that it was a trap.
“Qin Feng, just hold on. Let me check on this!”
Although Long Ting only had average capabilities that seemed a little weak among those Human Alliance members that were above S-tier, there were still connections and intelligence sources that the Long family could use. After all, they had been in the Human Alliance for two hundred years.
In less than half a day, Long Ting returned with news.
“Qin Feng, I was just informed that this is a new realm battle. Surprisingly, apart from you, a large number of apt.i.tude users were also recruited. Perhaps this is just a coincidence.”
The name Mangled Crater Realm seemed to be describing something related with aerolites. It was filled with raging cosmos energy and a variety of aerolites. As the aerolites that descended at high speed were embedded with large amounts of rare mineral resources, it was categorised as a top-tier resource realm.
n.o.body knew who had control over the realm. But it had already been opened up to everyone. The reason was because of the appearance of large amounts of Void Insectoids.
Qin Feng had definitely not recruited himself into it.
If anyone else had been recruited, it might seem like a coincidence. However, Qin Feng would never a.s.sume that it was just a coincidence. His intuition told him that it was a trap.
But it was merely his gut feeling. Qin Feng did not have to tell Long Ting.
After ending the call with Long Ting, Qin Feng changed his plans.
“Bai Li, how long will it take for you to go to these realms, devour the cores and advance to SS-tier?”
Realm core was different from energy core. Although it was highly sought after, not everyone could get their hands on one. Not everyone was capable of entering into the realm core and devouring at high speed.
That was for humans, but for void beasts, or even Bai Li who was a spatial beast herself, it was as easy as pie.
The time required for advancement was even shorter than the time required to achieve S-tier.
“If I were to perform absorption and transform within the secret territory, it would not take more than a month!”
As Bai Li had absorbed a large number of spatial runes from the Runic Galaxy Realm, her capability had spiked, and the time required for her advancement was greatly shortened.
Perhaps for many others, advancement of apt.i.tude users would become more difficult when they had achieved greater heights. But for Qin Feng, it had become simpler as he got closer to his end goal.
“Take those realms for your advancement. This a.s.signment is too much of a coincidence. In other words, my advancement journey has been obstructed again, and I can only deal with this head on. I will try not to put myself at risk for a month. Until you are out in a month’s time, n.o.body can stop us anymore.”
Bai Li agreed to it. She went ahead to devour all ten realms that were obtained through the exchange. She entered into the realm and lay dormant where time flowed rapidly.
Qin Feng took a rest for several days and did not go to the Mangled Crater Realm. Until the seventh day, he finally went to the headquarters of Human Alliance and entered through the glowing entrance of the mission.
Upon his arrival, the secret plot that was aimed to kill him began to be unveiled.
As soon as Qin Feng stepped out from the glowing entrance and entered the Mangled Crater Realm, he was welcomed by the freezing air from the surrounding area.
The whizzing cold air diffused soil and grit across the land. The ground was in steel-grey color. There were some buildings around the glowing entrance and everything seemed to be built with simplicity.
It was a newly established small-sized colony. Of course, it was populated with apt.i.tude users above S-tier.
Sha sha sha…
Qin Feng heard something with his sharp hearing. Before releasing his consciousness, Qin Feng knew that the noise was not naturally formed.
They were Insectoids.
“Enemy attacks!!! Prepare for battle!”
An SSS-tier apt.i.tude user walked out from a house in the colony. His combat fatigues were already covered in ashes, and there were even some scratches and traces of damages.
There was only one reason for that. For him to suffer such damages, his internal energy s.h.i.+eld or self-protective ability must have already shattered multiple times.
Other apt.i.tude users seemed exhausted from the battle. They were forced to remain vigilant amid the tiredness as a slight amount of fear was noticeable in their eyes.
Obviously, the energy was much more powerful than expected.
“What are you looking at? Get out there, stop fooling around!” An SSS-tier apt.i.tude user who saw Qin Feng standing still on the ground while observing the others immediately yelled in dissatisfaction.
Qin Feng immediately reacted and ran out along with the others.
Soon, Qin Feng saw the enemy creature that he was about to face. At first glance, he took a deep breath.
Surprisingly, these creatures were approximately twenty meters in height and a hundred meters in length. They were covered by black metal carapace like a giant c.o.c.kroach.
“Void beast armored star!”
It was an ultra beast from the roach species. With their large number and extremely powerful defence energy, the armored star would devour soil and mineral resources from every realm. Most importantly, each of them from the ma.s.sive tribe had the capabilities of beast generals, beast kings, and beast emperors.
No wonder everyone was panicking.
Meanwhile, everyone braced themselves against the beasts that were pressing forward.
The animal call of the armored star sounded like a bull. Then, twelve of its legs began to move and run wild toward the colony. Even the legs were lined with hangnails that looked extremely vicious.
Screams were heard from the crowd, and everyone moved forward. Although the armored star was dangerous, the creature was packed with all sorts of treasures throughout its body.
People would often be tempted to take the risk for an unimaginable amount of fortune. It would not change even if it was a giant moving piece of fortune.
Qin Feng did not care about those items, and he did not want to compete with the others.
Although he did not want to compete, it did not mean that the armored star would not look for him. After all, there would still be some careless mistakes when people were running for their lives.
A giant armored star rushed toward Qin Feng; it almost had the capability of an S5-tier beast general. It was a gigantic one, with about twenty-five meters in height. It had already opened its mouth wide when it saw that Qin Feng was just a small and weak human.
The giant mouth was filled with sharpened serrated teeth. It was not aligned horizontally but in a ring formation that seemed to have circled into more than ten rings. It was crucial for them to chew and break down sandy and rocky minerals.
It was absolutely disgusting to have such an ugly mouthpart being aimed at Qin Feng.
Qin Feng raised his finger while a concentrated black spot lit up on it. It had only lasted for a short moment before a pitch-black light ray was shot directly toward its target.
The thickness was measured at about a meter.
“Finger of Death!”
A strong presence of death exploded and instantly hit on a deadly spot inside the giant mouth of the armored star.
The glowing light penetrated through the armored star and shot out from the backend of its throat, as if there was no restriction at all.
