384: Mo Wuji, Star Lord of the Star King Mountain

"You are Mo Wuji, Star Lord of the Star King Mountain?" Hoover finally responded and realised that the person in front of him must be Mo Wuji because who else could be so young yet so powerful? After confirming that the other party was Mo Wuji, Hoover started to calm himself down instead because even though Mo Wuji was strong, he had his own cultivation limits too.

Mo Wuji answered calmly, "That’s right but why are you the only here? Where is that Cang Jue and Zhu Qu?"

One Hoover alone wouldn’t mean much in Mo Wuji’s eyes as he was more worried about Cang Jue and Zhu Qu. In fact, Mo Wuji wouldn’t mind if he was with Cang Jue too because he believed that the strongest one should be Zhu Qu.

Cang Jue was a Class 9 space beast and was equivalent to an Earthly Immortal Stage expert. However, it was not like Mo Wuji had never met an Earthly Immortal Stage expert before as Gansius from the Gu Nuo Star Tribe was one fine example. If he were to let Gansius fight with Zhu Qu, Mo Wuji was confident Zhu Qu would be able to finish Gansius off in a few minutes. Even though both of them were in the Earthly Immortal Stage, there was really a vast difference in strength between the two of them.

Hoover had heard rumours about Mo Wuji’s terrifying combat achievements and he also knew how Zhu Qu was severely injured by him and had not fully recovered. However, Hoover was not afraid because the use of space cannon was meant for long range attack so in a close combat battle against him, Mo Wuji would not be able to use his space cannon at all. As for the attempt to assassinate Zhu Qu, it was because he brought along seven Worldly Immortal Stage experts. In his opinions, even if a pig were to bring seven Worldly Immortal Stage experts along with him to attack Zhu Qu, they would have been successful too. Regarding the rumours about Mo Wuji killing Bao Lie, haha, only an idiot would believe such things.

He had just advanced into the Worldly Immortal Stage Level 8 so even if this Star Lord Mo had a supernatural technique, it wouldn’t be enough to defeat him.

Hoover would only think this way because he was in an alliance with Zhu Qu and also because he had never seen how powerful Zhu Qu was, he treated Zhu Qu as the same type of Earthly Immortal Stage expert like Gansius.

"Brother Cang is in charge of Piercing Wind City while Brother Zhu is in charge of the Universal Hall. Star Lord Mo, you should have guessed my purpose of coming here right? Actually, there is no need for you to guess. I am in charge of the Star King Mountain. So what if you managed to use a space cannon to wipe out my Gu Nuo Star Tribe’s cavalry army? I…"

Before Hoover could even finish his sentence, Mo Wuji’s Tian Ji Pole was already flying towards him.

In Mo Wuji’s eyes, even if Hoover was in the Worldly Immortal Stage Level 8, he had no rights to spar with him as he was the only worried about the Piercing Wind City and the Universal Hall now.

Even though Sang Caihe was in the Worldly Immortal Stage Level 7 and Su Xuan, who had just advanced into the Worldly Immortal Stage Level 7, they were definitely not strong enough to deal with Zhu Qu.

Hoover saw Mo Wuji making his move and laughed coldly as he raised his hand to take his magic treasure but in the next moment, he was dazed.

It was as if at this moment, the space around him were sealed up and so did his movement. However, even in this momentary pause in space, he could feel an incoming death threat.

"Puff!" After that momentary pause in space and before Hoover could even do anything, he saw with his own eyes how Mo Wuji’s steel pole struck against his forehead. Fresh blood were spat out and even Hoover’s primordial spirit were destroyed into shreds by Mo Wuji.

I can’t even execute one move? This was Hoover’s final thoughts before his death.



"Boom!" Continuous explosions could be heard outside the Piercing Wind City and every time an explosion was heard, the cracking sound of the defensive array protecting the Piercing Wind City could be heard. The person attacking the Piercing Wind City’s defensive array was a tall man with long hair. This man was extremely ugly and had a black face with a slanted black horn on top of his head.

Yan Ze brought along another two Worldly Immortal Stage experts as they stood on top of the defensive array while he continuously order the array masters to not stop repairing the defensive array. Even so, the crack on the defensive array was getting increasingly large.

As the crack on the defensive array grew bigger, the expression of Yan Ze and co. grew uglier.

Everyone knew who this tall ugly man with long hair was and that he was the Space Wolf King’s eldest son, Cang Jue who could also been known as Single-Horned Wolf King.

According to Fei Chao, the Nine Mo City was massacred because of the fire produced by this wolf king. Also, this Single Horn Wolf King had a fondness to swallow young female cultivator’s heart. What he needed was the hearts of those female cultivators who hadn’t experience much of the world, had a high cultivation level and beautiful features.

"Castellan Su, are there still any working transfer arrays in the Piercing Wind City?" As he watched the defensive array was about to be destroyed, Yan Ze asked as he clenched his fist so tightly that veins were starting to pop out in his hand. He was very clear what the outcome would be if the defensive array was destroyed.

It would be another Nine Mo City.

If the Piercing Wind CIty were to follow the footsteps of the Nine Mo City, half of the entire Zhen Mo Continent would have fallen. If they lost half of the Zhen Mo Continent, what would they have left on Zhen Xing?

The person standing beside Yan Ze was the castellan of the Piercing Wind City, Castellan Su Yu, Worldly Immortal Stage Level 4.

After hearing Yan Ze’s words, Su Yu shook her head, "No, before Cang Jue started his rampage on the defensive array, he had already destroyed the space transfer array around him. Cang Jue was not that smart so such things should have been done with the help of Zhu Qu."

Yan Ze let out a long sigh as the main transfer array to the Piercing Wind City was from the Nine Mo City. Now that the Nine Mo City was destroyed, the transfer array should have been destroyed long ago.

However, the Piercing Wind City still had some hidden transfer array for emergency. Now that even these transfer arrays were destroyed, the Star Lord wouldn’t be able to get here in the shortest possible amount of time even if he found out about the incident.

Seeing how the Piercing Wind City was bound to fall, this would signify the ultimate fall of Zhen Xing too. Yan Ze finally understood the actions of the former Star Lord Chi Tong because it wasn’t because Star Lord Chi Tong didn’t dare to offend the Space Wolf King but because he didn’t dare to let the Space Wolf King enter Zhen Xing.

Even though the one who came was not the Space Wolf King himself but his eldest son, the Single Horn Wolf King, they were already extremely helpless against him. It was clear that the moment the Space Wolf King arrived, Zhen Xing would have been wiped out easily.

"Hall Master Yan, there are so many hot blooded men in my Piercing Wind City, how could we be fearful of a single brute? So what if Cang Jue is a Class 9 demonic beast, we are all more than willing to fight to our death to protect what we have here on Zhen Xing," A Worldly Immortal Stage Level 1 shouted out."

Yan Xe shook his head, "You have no idea how horrifying Cang Jue could be and if there was a chance to win if we fight till our death, does it look like I, Yan Ze, would be someone who is afraid? I am just fearful that there might not even be a tiny hope of victory against him."

Yan Ze was not speaking blindly as he clearly knew the strength of Cang Jue. Yan Ze knew that he wouldn’t even be able to have a word with him before dying if he were to go against a Class 9 space beast. As for the rest of them, given Cang Jue’s vicious character, he would immediately burn them to death mercilessly.

"Boom!" Yet another intense explosion was heard.

"Kacha!" The final piece of defensive array was finally broken and a path was carved out into the Piercing Wind City as Cang Jue glanced at it.

"Hahahaha…" Cang Jue let out a wild laughter which the entire Piercing Wind City could hear.

An immense killing intent and hostility followed Cang Jue’s aura into the Piercing Wind City and Yan Ze’s heart turned cold. Even the face of the Worldly Immortal Stage Level 1 expert who said he was willing to fight to his death with Cang Jue turned pale. He finally realised that not everyone had the qualifications to even fight to their death with Cang Jue and after feeling Cang Jue’s imposing aura, he knew that he was definitely not qualified to fight Cang Jue.

"You are only a brute and you dare to be arrogant here in the Piercing Wind CIty?" Before Cang Jue could step into the broken defensive array of the Piercing Wind City, a disdainful voice could be heard.

"Star King Mountain’s Star Lord, Mo Wuji," Following that voice, a person step down from space and landed in front of Cang Jue, blocking the gap of the broken defensive array of the Piercing Wind City.

"Star Lord is here!" Yan Ze, who was originally pale, suddenly punched his fist that he had held so tightly in the air as he simply couldn’t contain his excitement for any longer.

"Boom!" The initially gloomy and dejected Piercing Wind City looked like it was revived and countless of cheers could be heard celebrating the arrival of the Star Lord. One would only realise the value of life when facing death. After learning about the massacre of the Nine Mo City, everyone knew that the moment Cang Jue entered the Piercing Wind City, it would definitely not end up any better than Nine Mo City.

Now that the Star Lord had arrived, to the cultivators of the Piercing Wind City, it was like catching a log when stranded out at sea.

Even though many of them had not personally seen the Star Lord, they had this indescribable trust in him because of the things they heard he had done. Single-handedly snatching the Universal Hall back, killing Bao Lie, killing the Earthly Immortal Stage expert of Gu Nuo Star Tribe, demolishing the Broken Sect and even injuring the Broken Sect’s Sect Head…

It no longer mattered whether or not Mo Wuji had help from others to injure Zhu Qu.

These incidents reassured them that as long as the Star Lord was here, the Piercing Wind City would definitely be fine.

"Castellan Su, come with me to fight alongside the Star Lord," Yan Ze regained his composure very quickly and realised that even though he was only in the Worldly Immortal Stage Level 6, Su Yu and himself were already the strongest ones here. He was clearer than anyone else that even Mo Wuji was not invincible.

Whether it was snatching back the Universal Hall or killing Bao Lie, Mo Wuji made use of his huge cannon and sneak attack respectively instead of a head to head battle. In fact, that Cang Jue in front of him was not someone Bao Lie could offend too. No matter how strong Bao Lie was, he was only a Class 8 demonic beast while Cang Jue was actually a Class 9 beast. In the Wolf King Mountain, he was only second to the Space Wolf King.

"Mo Wuji? Star King Mountain’s Star Lord? How are you still alive?" Cang Jue didn’t attack immediately as he asked inquisitively.

Hoover was an Worldly Immortal Stage Level 8 expert and in front of the Star King Mountain’s three strongest men, his aura could still oppress the entire Star King Mountain. He simply didn’t regard this ant, Mo Wuji, as a worthy opponent.

"You want to ask him?" Mo Wuji raised his hand and took out Hoover’s corpse as he threw it in front of Cang Jue.

"You killed him?" The anger in Cang Jue’s eyes grew massively as he would never have imagined Hoover to be killed and had his corpse lying right in front of him.

"Mighty Star Lord! All hail the Star King Mountain!" Just as Mo Wuji threw out Hoover’s corpse, the Piercing Wind City was filled with cheers and the initial depression because of the broken defensive array was turned drastically into extreme delight among the cultivators.

"Die!" A circular magic treasure was drawn out by Cang Jue and before the magic treasure could lock onto Mo Wuji, crackling explosions could be heard in the space surrounding them as the temperature in space was suddenly on the rise.

385: Battle of Flames

Mo Wuji could see clearly that this was actually a flaming futon. As each second passed, the temperature within the futon increased to yet another level. Other than this, the flaming futon was also continuously increasing in size.

Yan Ze and Su Yu. who were standing further away, could feel the terrifying temperature as they subconsciously took a step back. Initially, the two of them wanted to support Mo Wuji in his fight but they realised it would be impossible to even go any closer to Mo Wuji.

Mo Wuji immediately released a lightning web which instantly restrained the futon.

In only a few breaths’ time and a crackling sound, Mo Wuji’s lightning web was dissipated by the temperature of the flaming futon.

Mo Wuji guessed that Cang Jue must have used this futon to massacre the entire Nine Mo City because there was a flame within the futon which he couldn’t visibly see but was extremely powerful.

He mustn't let this futon continue expanding outwards because who knew how terrifying the end state of this expanding futon could be? If he were to wait till this flame reached the Piercing Wind City, even if he was still alive, he wouldn’t be able to do anything to save the city.

His Tian Ji Pole was swung out as it turned into pole shadows charging towards the futon.

"Boom!" Tian Ji Pole struck against the futon with about 3 metres radius and instead of breaking this futon, it ignited a formless flame that covered the entire sky. The insane heat scorched across space and even burnt Mo Wuji’s hair.

It seemed like because of the power of Mo Wuji’s pole, the flaming futon stopped expanding as it started to bend downwards instead.

This space within the futon was about to engulf Mo Wuji into its centre as the temperature was even more terrifying than before.

"You are merely a Worldly Immortal Stage expert and you dare act against me?" Cang Jue chuckled before slapping the futon a few times.

A few flaming radiances were then shot out from the futon towards Mo Wuji.

The temperature within the futon space was frightening and even though he had experienced the testing heat of the Scholar’s Heart, he could still feel the heating up of his body and even his elementary energy shield was unable to fend against it. The moment his elemental energy shield was burnt away by this heat, his clothing and skin would be next. Mo Wuji took in a breath of cold air because it wasn’t because he was careless that he was trapped by the flaming futon but because he was curious how powerful it was.

Mo Wuji tried to teleport and he noticed that in this flaming space, there seemed to be a unique law which constraint him as every time he teleport, he only moved a tiny step.

Mo Wuji barely managed to dodge the incoming flaming radiance while Cang Jue was still ferociously hitting on the flaming futon.

As more flaming radiance were being shot over, the temperature within the flaming futon was still rising and Mo Wuji’s movement were getting increasingly constraint. Finally one flaming radiance shot across Mo Wuji’s waist and as he felt the heat, the blood that was splattered out from his body was burnt into nothingness in an instant.

Mo Wuji sighed yet again because he had never seen such a powerful magic treasure before. This magic treasure only involved him getting attacked and he won’t even have a chance to talk face to face with Cang Jue, let alone fight back.

"Kacha!" The flaming futon finally enveloped the entire flaming space as Mo Wuji was directly trapped in the centre of the flaming space.

However, Mo Wuji managed to keep his cool as he knew that it was because he lacked combat experience which resulted in him getting trapped in such a scenario. He was confident that this Cang Jue was nothing compared to Zhu Qu and that Mo Wuji’s strength was at least 10 times stronger than when he faced Zhu Qu previously.

However, he didn’t even have the chance to exchange blows with Cang Jue and was immediately trapped in this flaming futon. If he was slightly more experienced in such situations, he would have immediately attacked Cang Jue instead of the flaming futon.

Mo Wuji raised his hand and shot out countless of lightning swords and these lightning swords could only make the futon tremble a little but was still unable to break through it.

After a few attempts and getting shot at by the flaming radiance two more times, Mo Wuji gave up on the idea in trying to break the space within the flaming futon.

The Scholar’s Heart instantaneously formed a new shield on the elementary energy shield that was protecting him previously and since it was against flames, he decided to use his own flame to defend himself before thinking of a new idea.

Cang Jue didn’t even bother about Mo Wuji retrieving his Scholar’s Heart shield as he continuously smacked against the flaming futon to release even more flaming radiances towards Mo Wuji.

Cang Jue had been battling since a long time ago so he naturally had more experience than Mo Wuji. Even if he didn’t bother about what Mo Wuji was doing, he didn’t underestimate his opponent too because since Mo Wuji could kill Bao Lie, Hoover and eventually becoming the Star Lord of the Star King Mountain, he must be pretty capable.

Presently, as long as he was able to get rid of Mo Wuji, he would no longer have any obstructions in obliterating the city. He also believed that even without using his flaming futon, he would be able to kill Mo Wuji easily. But however, since he had a reliable way to finish Mo Wuji off, why should he bother fighting head to head with Mo Wuji?

"Bang bang bang bang…" Endless amount of flaming radiance shot against Mo Wuji’s Scholar’s Heart’s shield as the countless amount of flaming radiance formed a massive flaming ray splattering in the middle of the space within the flaming futon. The splattering flaming ray was like a drop of water meeting a sponge as it was completely absorbed by the Scholar’s Heart shield before disappearing without a trace.

In the next moment that Mo Wuji realised this, he was elated because he didn’t even use much elemental energy and these flaming radiances were being swallowed by the Scholar’s Heart shield.

Initially, Mo Wuji took out his Scholar’s Heart with the intention to protect himself from the flaming radiance and buy some time as he think of another way to deal with the situation he was currently stuck in. Now that he realised that his Scholar’s Heart would be able to go against the flame within the flaming futon, why would Mo Wuji stand on any ceremony? He immediately drove his Scholar’s Heart to penetrate out of the futon as he started to refine the flaming space that was extended from the flaming futon.

After tens of breath, Mo Wuji knew that his guess was right. As the Scholar’s Heart continued to absorb the burning hot flaming radiance and the rising temperature from the flaming futon, it’s strength continue to soar and become even greater than before.

Besides this, following the Scholar’s Heart’s absorption of the heat, the flaming space produced by the flaming futon was shrinking and getting weaker.

Since Mo Wuji was able to notice that, Cang Jue would naturally be able too. His flaming futon was his greatest trump card and the reason why he used it the moment he saw Mo Wuji was because Mo Wuji had killed Bao Lie, the white-eyed wolf and many other space beasts of the Space King Mountain which resulted in a lot of hatred in his heart for Mo Wuji.

Cang Jue might look like an ugly joke but he was actually quite a logical fella. The greater the hatred for Mo Wuji, the more he had to be cautious. The cautiousness that he displayed was evident in the execution of his greatest technique to restrain Mo Wuji from the on start before slowly venting his anger and hatred on him.

However, before he could even restrain Mo Wuji, his triumph card was actually controlled by Mo Wuji. How was it possible?

Cang Jue wanted to retrieve his flaming futon immediately but he realised that his own flaming futon was being controlled by another type of flame as the essences of his flame was continuously being absorbed by Mo Wuji’s flame. Every second passed and Mo Wuji’s flame was getting stronger while his own flame was getting weaker.

At this moment, Cang Jue couldn’t be bothered about being cautious anymore as he took a step into the flaming space within the flaming futon. He raised his hand and his Six Clouds Knot was already charging towards Mo Wuji.

As the white Six Clouds Knot was surrounding Mo Wuji, he felt like he was in an intense battlezone and that his fighting will was about to be restrained by the aura of this battlezone.

The Nirvana Pole Shadows started to leave the Tian Ji Pole as its elemental energy exploded within the flaming space.

As the elemental energies clashed with each other, it was like a heavy steel hammer being struck against Mo Wuji’s chest. Mo Wuji could clearly feel the pain of his opponent’s elemental energy tearing his skin.

As compared to Mo Wuji, Cang Jue was angrier and more shocked. The fact that Mo Wuji’s flame was able to restrain his flaming futon already made him extremely shocked and now Mo Wuji was actually capable of contending against his elemental energy despite only being at the Worldly Immortal Stage? One must know he was a Class 9 beast and even if he was only in the elementary stage of Class 9, it was still extremely rare among all the space beasts.

Mo Wuji wasn’t fearful because in one exchange of blows, Mo Wuji knew clearly that Cang Jue was really like an ant compared to Zhu Qu.

Without waiting for Cang Jue to act, Mo Wuji stepped out of the space and shot out several lightning swords at Cang Jue and then a space imprisonment. After introducing the Scholar’s Heart to this battle, the space within the flaming futon was no longer controlled by Cang Jue.

Ever since he met Cang Jue, Cang Jue was the one who had the initiative to attack and Mo Wuji was all along the passive one but it was finally his turn to take the initiative.

Cang Jue grunted as his Six Clouds Knot released a bunch of white radiance to go against the blueish lightning radiance from the lightning swords.

At this instant, Cang Jue felt something was amiss and even though Mo Wuji’s lightning sword was indeed strong, it wouldn’t do any harm to him. Logically speaking, now that Mo Wuji finally had the opportunity to attack, he wouldn’t waste it just like that right?

Something must be wrong and at the thought of this, more elemental energy surged into his Six Clouds Knot and it was just about to transform.

Simultaneously, Cang Jue noticed there was a fluctuation in the space surrounding him. The space no longer seemed to be the same space just moments earlier as he couldn’t even sense Mo Wuji’s position now.

Not good, a deathly aura penetrated into his will at the thought of this.

Presently, why would Cang Jue even bother continue attacking Mo Wuji? His entire body was getting distorted crazily and all he wanted in this instant was to leave his position.

"Puff!" A steel pole struck against Cang Jue’s neck and the pain of broken bones was spreaded across his body as Cang Jue didn’t even bother about the flaming futon anymore. He simply turned and wanted to run away.

The combination of the space imprisonment and the Nirvana Pole Shadow had already turned into Mo Wuji’s sure kill technique but he didn’t expect Cang Jue to still be able to dodge the fatal strike.

In a second, Cang Jue had already escaped over 3 metres away from Mo Wuji.

If he was fighting anyone else, Cang Jue could have escaped just like that but against Mo Wuji, a distance of 3 metres was really not considered significant as he managed to appear behind him in an instant.

"Boom!" Before Cang Jue could escape yet again, Mo Wuji punched Cang Jue from his back.

"Bang!" Cang Jue was only focused on leaving so how would he have known Mo Wuji would suddenly appear behind him. The next thing he knew was that his huge body was like a rubber ball being thrown and sent flying by Mo Wuji.

Yan Ze and Su Yu, who had already retreated to the periphery of the Piercing Wind City, knew they simply couldn’t afford to get involved in the fight. Under the intense flames, they wouldn’t even know who had the upper hand in the fight.

At this moment, they saw Cang Jue flying up and a hole with the size of a fist appeared at the back of Cang Jue’s chest.
