Chapter 1635: Unable to Refine
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Although it was a good idea, after Jiang Yi took out the mummy and injected his heavenly powers into it, even after five full minutes; the mummy still did not have any reaction.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Attacks were pouring in from all sides as the Sword Emanations Race beings were being decimated. Jiang Yi could only stop refining the mummy and focus on sending Sword Emanations Race beings out; he wanted to save his life first.
Fortunately, after the ten pagodas and small palace were about a thousand five hundred feet away, it was extremely hard for them to be moved forward anymore. After all—as these structures were huge, the gravity exerted on them was immense. At such a distance, those King-Ranked formidable martial artists’ attacks were severely weakened. Each attack could only destroy two or three Sword Emanations Race beings, and Jiang Yi could easily send more out to block their attacks.
“I’ll use the Power of Heaven and Earth and try!”
After sending enough Sword Emanations Race beings out, Jiang Yi changed his plan. Since the Mighty God Race cultivated the Power of Heaven and Earth, perhaps it might be easier to use it to refine the mummy.
Every drop of the Power of Heaven and Earth was very precious. Jiang Yi only circulated a sliver of his Power of Heaven and Earth as he injected it into the mummy.
After the Power of Heaven and Earth was injected, the entire mummy shone. Those dry and stiff muscles became oiled and lit up. Jiang Yi’s eyes also lit up as he saw that his idea had worked.
It was just that...
Jiang Yi’s eyes quickly dimmed. After the Power of Heaven and Earth had entered the mummy’s entire body—within seconds, the shining corpse grew dim once again.
Jiang Yi blinked as he sent a sliver of heavenly powers to investigate. He realized that the Power of Heaven and Earth had disappeared without a trace and was a little speechless.
His ninth star sphere didn’t contain much Power of Heaven and Earth. Although he had continuously cultivated the Power of Heaven and Earth recently and had accumulated some that could probably last him for a month or two, this mummy was huge. Even if he injected all the Power of Heaven and Earth he currently possessed, it would not be able to control the mummy for long.
“Let me try again!”
Jiang Yi continued to inject small amounts of Power of Heaven and Earth into the mummy; the effects were the same. Every time the Power of Heaven and Earth entered, the mummy would light up. However, each sliver of Power of Heaven and Earth could only maintain control over the mummy for seconds. After that, the mummy would return back to its original state. The Power of Heaven and Earth would disappear without a trace as if nothing had happened. It was impossible to refine the mummy like this.
Jiang Yi gritted his teeth as he injected almost a hundred slivers of Power of Heaven and Earth into the mummy. Finally, he stopped, utterly defeated. He was very certain that he wasn’t going to be able to refine the mummy just based on the Power of Heaven and Earth.
He had already used up a portion of the Power of Heaven and Earth in his ninth star sphere just now; the mummy had no reaction. Even if he injected all the remaining Power of Heaven and Earth he had, he knew that it would be futile. Without the Power of Heaven and Earth, he would not even be able to move on the stone stage. If that happened, Jiang Yi could only wait for death. He didn’t want to waste his Power of Heaven and Earth anymore.
The mummy couldn’t be refined by either heavenly powers or the Power of Heaven and Earth; without a soul spirit, the Heaven-Swallowing Beast couldn’t control it as well. Jiang Yi’s eyes shifted as he decided to try his last method: using the Xiaozhuan characters.
Xiaozhuan characters surged forward from his glabella and straight into the mummy. Jiang Yi controlled the Xiaozhuan characters to enter the mummy’s brain and into its soul spirit consciousness as he found its dried-up primordial spirit. The Xiaozhuan characters entered the primordial spirit as it spun about inside.
Jiang Yi’s heart sank. After a few minutes, the mummy’s primordial spirit was still as dead as ever, without any signs of life or movement. Jiang Yi then controlled all the Xiaozhuan characters to swim within the mummy’s entire body, to see if there was any effect.
The results were self-evident!
The Xiaozhuan characters swam about inside the mummy over and over again; the mummy still did not have any response. Jiang Yi finally gave up. He couldn’t control this mummy and couldn’t refine it to become his puppet.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
After such a long time, the Sword Emanations Race beings were being killed in droves. Jiang Yi could only give up on refining the mummy as he kept on releasing the Sword Emanations Race beings and tried to think of other ways out of this situation.
The ten pagodas and small palace were now a thousand and two hundred feet away. At this distance, it was extremely arduous for the people trying to attack the structures to move them any closer. All of these young masters, young mistresses, and bodyguards were being pressured by a huge amount of gravity. Their attacks became very difficult to unleash, and their strength also weakened.
“Alright, all of you can retreat. This distance is more or less good enough.”
Dao Feng ordered. Although a thousand and two hundred feet was still a distance away, all the King-Ranked formidable martial artists’ attacks now could kill quite a few Sword Emanations Race beings with one attack. If they continued to do this, the amount of Sword Emanations Race beings they could kill was considerable; Dao Feng did not believe that Jiang Yi’s Sword Emanations Race beings were limitless.
All the King-Ranked formidable martial artists were seated on the pagodas and palace. As they were seated, the gravity exerted on them was lesser and it wasn’t that tiring to attack as well. They could most definitely continue this for many hours. Even if they grew tired, they could rest for a while and continue their attacks. As there was still time in the Demon-Killing Palace, Dao Feng decided that even if it took a full half-day, he was going to kill Jiang Yi.
“I’m not going to care anymore! If I’m exposed, so be it!”
Seeing the Sword Emanations Race beings decimated, Jiang Yi decided to tumble within the mummy’s body and lean on it. As the mummy was huge and lying sideways, Jiang Yi could easily lean on its back as it blocked all the attacks from four pagodas. He only needed to release Sword Emanations Race beings to block the King-Ranked formidable martial artists on the remaining six pagodas and small palace. This way, Jiang Yi could conserve his Sword Emanations Race beings and buy himself more time.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
He didn’t release any more Sword Emanations Race beings to the mummy’s side as the Sword Emanations Race beings there were destroyed swiftly as the mummy’s huge body was revealed.
The mummy’s appearance made everyone’s eyes narrow. The mummy was so huge, and its body emanated a menacing aura. It was just like a primitive beast lurking in the dark and made everyone’s hearts palpitate.
One of the King-Ranked formidable martial artists sent a streak of shooting stars and slammed it at the mummy as something astonishing happened. The mummy lit up with a dark-green light for a moment, but it not only didn’t explode. Moreover, it didn’t seem to have felt anything. There wasn’t even a single mark on its skin.
“This mummy... could it be from the Mighty God Race?”
Everyone present was someone important in the Heaven Domain; it didn’t take someone long to connect the dots. Only the Might God Race’s bodies could be so huge, strong, and powerful.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Seven King-Ranked formidable martial artists combined forces and attacked the mummy. However, there was no effect at all.
Dao Feng noticed the situation as his charred face lit up with excitement. He shouted, “Stop attacking this side. That side, speed up your attacks. Jiang Yi is soon to be out of puppets. This mummy is definitely from the Mighty God Race and has been refined. If I get this mummy, I will invite everyone to entire my clan’s Primordial Mystic Realm for two months!”
While ordinary people might not know the value of the Mighty God Race’s mummies, Dao Feng knew it very well. If he could obtain this body and bring it back to his clan, they could continue to enhance and refine it.
When that happened, it would become a very powerful puppet. A puppet that could even rival him.
