In the void, the Team Grade Palace Artifact shuttled back and forth like a fish in water, extremely agile. As the Open Heaven masters guarding the various Spirit Arrays activated the Spirit Arrays, a series of attacks shot forward.
Each strike was equivalent to a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage's Strike.
The fleeing Black Ink Clan cultivators in front of them couldn’t resist at all, and in an instant, all of them were killed while the rest fled in all directions.
This Team Grade palace artifact was naturally the one led by Xu Linggong. It had set out from Yin-Yang Pass and arrived at its designated location at the scheduled time.
But before they could rest, they saw the Black Ink Clan fleeing towards them.
Whether it was Yang Kai or Xu Linggong, both of them knew that these Black Ink Clans had escaped from the battlefield on the resource production area. Seeing this scene, how could the two of them not know that the Human Race had already gained the upper hand on the main battlefield, perhaps even defeating the main forces of the Black Ink Clan? Otherwise, these Black Ink Clans wouldn’t have escaped.
These small fish and shrimps that didn’t even have a Feudal Lord couldn’t even arouse the interest of Yang Kai and the others. Just the power of the Palace Artifact alone was enough to crush them.
The position Yang Kai and the others were currently in could be said to be a necessary route for the Black Ink Clan to escape. This was also a deliberate arrangement by Yin-Yang Pass.
Now, all that was left was to see when the heavily injured Black Abyss Territory Lord would pass by here. At that time, it would be the critical moment for the Yin-Yang Pass plan.
For this plan, Yin-Yang Pass didn’t hesitate to blow up the battle in the resource production area in advance. Their ultimate goal was to ensure Yang Kai’s safety and infiltrate the Black Ink Clan’s territory. This series of plans was extremely meticulous, and even the Black Ink Clan wouldn’t have thought that the Human Race had spent so much effort just for Yang Kai.
The Palace Artifact flew through the void for half a day, chasing down many fleeing Black Ink Clans before finally encountering a decent opponent.
This was a team of more than a hundred Black Ink Clan masters, with two Feudal Lords leading them. However, after fighting for so long, these two Feudal Lords were both injured, so the morale of the entire team was extremely low.
Seeing a Human Race palace artifact in the void, the two Feudal Lords were shocked.
No matter how they thought about it, they couldn’t understand how a Human Race palace artifact could appear in such a place.
It wasn’t the first or second time they had fought with the Human Race, so the two Feudal Lords were well aware of the power of this kind of palace artifact. Although the Human Race’s small team only had a dozen or so people, each of them had at least two Seventh Order masters, and with the addition of a palace artifact, they were completely qualified to contend with these hundreds of defeated soldiers.
However, when they thought about how their clansmen would arrive one after another, the two Feudal Lords suddenly felt relieved.
Regardless of why this Human Race Palace Artifact had been left alone here, since they had encountered it, it was a great contribution. All they needed to do was delay this group of Human Race cultivators here and wait for the rest of their clansmen to arrive. By relying on their superior numbers, they would be able to take them down.
This battle had already been a bitter one, so if they could obtain some merit at this time, they might be able to avoid some punishment when they returned.
Thinking up to this point, the two Feudal Lords exchanged a glance and nodded slightly. There was no need for them to exchange any further words.
One of the more impatient Feudal Lords waved his hand and shouted, “Stop them, don’t let them escape!”
Saying so, he took the lead and rushed forward like a cat that had smelled a fishy scent, afraid that if he was too late, he would lose his share.
However, what he saw next shocked him greatly.
Originally, he had thought that such a lone Human Race team would flee upon seeing so many Black Ink Clan masters, but the situation was not what he had expected. Not only did the Human Race squad not flee, they instead charged towards him.
Before the artifact arrived, the Battleship’s Spirit Array began to flicker.
The Feudal Lord who was rushing forward was shocked and instinctively felt a sense of danger envelop him, hurriedly dodging to the side. In the next moment, a beam of light shot out from the Palace Artifact and tore through space.
The Feudal Lord dodged quickly, but he could still feel the power of this blow. If he, who was already injured, were to take this blow head on, he would either die or be seriously injured.
Looking back, the Feudal Lord’s heart felt like it was being stabbed by a knife as he saw a huge hole in the middle of his hundred-man army. Under that blow, at least twenty of his clansmen had died.
The violent fluctuations of energy fluctuated again as two more beams of light shot out.
Although the Black Ink Clan had already taken precautions, they still lost many lives. Just the power of the three strikes from the Palace Artifact was enough to reduce the number of the Black Ink Clan troops by half.
But this wasn’t the end. From the Palace Artifact, a figure rushed out, holding a long spear in his hand. With a single thrust, he arrived in front of the leading Feudal Lord.
The Feudal Lord was overwhelmed with shock, never having imagined that this human’s speed would be so fast. He hurriedly circulated his Ink Force to form a solid shield in front of him.
The defensive barrier that should have been foolproof was unable to stop the sharp spear, and as the spear passed through it, the Ink Force shattered.
Fortunately, this short delay was enough for this Feudal Lord to adjust his body and barely avoid any vital points.
As black blood was sent flying, the long spear stabbed straight into his shoulder. The wounded Feudal Lord was both shocked and enraged, roaring towards the sky as he clenched his fists and punched forward.
This punch was extremely powerful and contained a devastating power.
However, this punch missed.
The Feudal Lord didn’t even notice how the enemy had disappeared. By the time he noticed the other party’s aura, a sense of crisis had already struck him.
Suddenly turning his head, he saw the young man holding the spear with a cold expression, as if an indestructible spear was rapidly expanding in front of his eyes.
In this life or death crisis, the Feudal Lord raised his arm to block the attack while spitting out a black ink cloud towards the human, hoping he would retreat.
From within the black ink cloud, the long spear shot out and avoided the two arms that were blocking its way, directly shattering the massive head.
The young man’s figure rushed out from the black ink cloud and swept past the Feudal Lord’s headless corpse, his murderous intent clear.
The void seemed to fall silent.
The surviving Black Ink Clan were all shocked beyond belief. On top of the Palace Artifact, the eyes of Xu Linggong’s team also twitched.
“So strong?” Qing Kui, who was in charge of an offensive spirit array, gulped.
Although he had been controlling the Spirit Array all this time, he had clearly witnessed the scene just now. From the moment Yang Kai had rushed out of the Battleship with his spear to the moment the Feudal Lord had fallen, it had only taken a few breaths for the two sides to exchange two or three blows.
The Feudal Lord had been killed just like that!
Although the Feudal Lord was injured, he was still a Feudal Lord, corresponding to a human race Seventh Order Open Heaven master. Even so, in front of Yang Kai, he was still like a child, unable to resist.
Such terrifying strength was simply unheard of. On the battlefield, Qing Kui had seen many Seventh Order Open Heaven masters, but none of them could compare to Yang Kai.
Even his Master Xu Linggong was no match for him.
Thinking back to the first time he met Yang Kai, he was only a Sixth Order Open Heaven cultivator, the same grade as himself. By chance, he had participated in the Dao Exchange that would decide Qu Huachang’s marriage and won first place, allowing him to shine in the Cave Heaven Paradise.
It had only been a few years, but this guy had already left him far behind.
Counting the days, when this boy was at the Emperor Realm, he was a Sixth Order master. When he broke through to the Fifth Order, he was a Sixth Order. When Yang Kai was a Sixth Order, he was still a Sixth Order. Now that Yang Kai was a Seventh Order, he was still a Sixth Order!
For some reason, Qing Kui felt a sense of defeat, as if he had lived all these years like a dog.
Seated on the other side of the Spirit Array, Su Yingxue seemed to sense the change in his mood and gently said, “There are always some people in this world who are blessed by the Heavens and have a great luck. Senior Brother’s talent is also extremely outstanding, so why bother looking for trouble? Since you can’t compare to others, you should compete with yourself. Continuing to surpass yourself is the right way.”
Qing Kui couldn’t help laughing, “I understand your reasoning, but… this is the first time I’ve felt such a huge gap between myself and others.”
Xu Linggong said in a low voice, “Only by knowing shame can one become brave. Since you don’t have the other party’s luck and aptitude, you should work harder to climb to the peak. Persistence is more important than anything else.”
“Yes!” Qing Kui replied respectfully.
At this moment, the Vice-Team Leader, who was also a Seventh Order Open Heaven master, approached Xu Linggong and asked softly, “Team Leader, should we help?”
Xu Ling Gong shook his head, “No need, just watch.”
Based on the speed at which Yang Kai had killed a Feudal Lord, such a Black Ink Clan team didn't require their help at all, Yang Kai was able to deal with them quickly.
As the few of them spoke, the surviving members of the Black Ink Clan were already in a state of chaos, and the remaining Feudal Lord was even more terrified. The death of his comrade had given him quite a shock. In terms of strength, the one who had just died was on par with him. If this human race youth could take the life of his comrade in just two or three moves, he probably wouldn’t be able to withstand three moves from him.
This Human Race was a Seventh Order? The Black Ink Clan Feudal Lord was about to go crazy. He felt that even facing an Eighth Order Open Heaven master didn’t give him so much pressure. How could there be such a terrifying Seventh Order?
Therefore, when Yang Kai’s eyes turned towards him and his aura locked onto him, the Black Ink Clan’s Feudal Lord simply didn’t have any intention of resisting, turning around and fleeing.
However, before he could get far, his body suddenly shook and he froze in place.
When he looked down, a sharp spear point had appeared on his chest and black blood dripped from it. It was only now that he felt the pain.
In his despair, the Feudal Lord still wanted to counterattack, but Yang Kai’s spear shook and a powerful World Force burst forth, directly blowing his giant body into dust and scattering his broken limbs and flesh into the air!
“What a pity!” Yang Kai muttered under his breath. The first Feudal Lord had dared to fight him and had resisted several times, but this Feudal Lord had decided to flee, it would only speed up his fall.
More than half of the hundred Black Ink Clan members had been killed by the Palace Artifact, and the two Feudal Lords had been killed by Yang Kai, so how could the remaining Black Ink Clan members be their opponent?
The Battleship and Yang Kai clashed for a while before killing them to the last one.
