    "Perfect Sovereign," pleaded Qin Yun through a karmic voice transmission. "I know it's beyond your power, but please think of a way to save the billions of lives of the Great Chang world. I, Qin Yun, will definitely not forget your great kindness!"

    "Perfect Sovereign, please take pity on our Great Chang world's lives. Save them." Ancestral Master Zhang also chimed in via a karmic voice transmission.

    In the starry cosmos, Yang Jian shook his head gently despite hearing their impassioned voice transmissions.

    There were many things even he was powerless against.

    "I'm unable to descend into a Small World with my true body. With things as they are, I can't help you," said Yang Jian via voice transmission. "Star Destruction's Chaos Godfiend body and the Connate Numinous treasure, the Great Yin Disk, are perfect for one another. His strength has increased quite substantially. Now, the 108 Heavenly Constellation Earthly Wraith Formation is no longer his match. In the entire Three Realms... no one can do a thing to him as long as he remains in a Small World."

    "Even the Heavenly Courts and Buddhists have no solutions?" pressed Qin Yun.

    "The Heavenly Courts and Buddhists are not omnipotent."

    Qin Yun fell silent.

    He had originally placed his hopes on the Heavenly Courts and Buddhists, as well as the powerful entities of the Three Realms. But clearly, Star Destruction was invincible in Small Worlds!

    "Oh?" Qin Yun turned his head and looked in the direction of the Divine Firmament Chapter. He sensed a terrifying lightning surge into the Divine Firmament Chapter. "Senior Brother Zhang has made a breakthrough?"


    Inside Divine Firmament Chapter.

    Ancestral Master Zhang sat cross-legged with the twelve Lightning Godfiends avatars surrounding him. Terrifying purple lightning was bolting across him as his aura was much stronger than before.

    For many years, his deepest insight was in the Massive Twelve Capital Heaven Divine Wraith Array. His Divine Firmament Lightning Dharma had sourced itself from the Massive Twelve Capital Heaven Divine Wraith Array. In the Lightning Beast Manor, he had learned the Capital Heaven Divine Lightning. It was a Lightning Dharma array that was created with the Massive Twelve Capital Heaven Divine Wraith Array as a blueprint.

    After Ancestral Master Zhang cultivated it to perfection, his insights into the Massive Twelve Capital Heaven Divine Wraith Array deepened. He had much greater confidence in his Divine Firmament Lightning Dharma's ninth firmament Dharmic formulation.

    After cultivating for more than a thousand years in the Lightning Beast Manor, and then consuming the Connate Lightning Fruit... Ancestral Master Zhang's Divine Firmament Lightning Dharma's ninth firmament Dharmic formulation had an eighty percent chance of success. He had to make a breakthrough this time! He could not be bothered to worry even if his Lightning Dharma wasn't sufficiently perfect.

    And the result was...


    "Ninth firmament Skyimmortal." Ancestral Master Zhang's eyes lit up. The Dharmic formulation he created had robust foundations. Therefore, his Dharmic powers surged straight to the ninth firmament Skyimmortal realm the moment he broke through. The sixth firmament Dharmic powers in him were constantly transforming.

    "As expected. My Divine Firmament Lightning Dharma is definitely one of the best Lightning Dharma in the Three Realms, in no way inferior to Senior Brother Sa's Heavenly Constellation Lightning Dharma." Ancestral Master Zhang was pumped. After all, this was his pursuit over thousands of years of cultivation. Following that, he took out an Immortal Pill from a yellow-skinned calabash. He consumed it to replenish his Dharmic powers and accelerate their conversion.

    "If I can save all the life in my homeworld, I'm willing to abandon my Divine Firmament Lightning Dharma." Ancestral Master Zhang stood up. With a series of whooshes, the twelve Lightning Godfiends avatars transformed into streams of light and fused into his body.


    He flew out of his seclusion chamber.


    In the sky above the East Sea's offshore, Qin Yun and Yi Xiao saw Ancestral Master Zhang appear beside them with Void Transference. His aura was clearly much more powerful than before. He was as strong as Senior Brother Sa and Daoist Zou.

    "I've come." Ancestral Master Zhang looked up into the sky. Outside the array formation, the two red arms which resembled heavenly columns were descending from deep within the clouds. The palms were like fiery mountains that stretched out for hundreds of kilometers. Each finger was razor sharp, and when it struck the array formation's barriers in a bid to tear through them, the eight massive array formations would quake and produce numerous ripples.

    "The Heavenly Courts and Buddhists are out of solutions. Perfect Sovereign has urged us to escape with a small group of people." Qin Yun looked up as well.

    "Let's combine forces and try to see if we can stop him," said Ancestral Master Zhang.

    "Alright, let's give it a try."

    With a thought from Qin Yun, stellar light emanated his surroundings and began to condense into 360 Stellar Flying Swords.

    Ancestral Master Zhang waved his hand and immediately, twelve Lightning Godfiends avatars flew out. Each of them held an array flag as they formed a massive array.

    "Destroy." A huge purple talisman amulet phantom appeared behind Ancestral Master Zhang as a roar accompanied it.

    A wisp of gray lighting was born out of the array formation, effusing the aura of Chaos.

    This wisp of gray lightning rapidly flew upwards.

    Simultaneously, the 360 Stellar Flying Swords flew up as well.

    The array barrier trembled slightly as the gray lightning and flying swords flew out!

    But the moment they exited, the Great Yin domain outside became a constant obstacle to the Stellar Flying Swords and gray lightning's flight.

    The two gigantic red palms still fell from the sky. Immediately, the 360 Stellar Flying Swords formed a Water Cage that spanned hundreds of kilometers to hold back one of the palms. However, the red palm was completely unaffected. It continued its smite down! The palm hurtled down, dissipating the Water Cage as though it were a mere puddle.

    Poof! The gray wisp of lightning was lightning at the Chaos level, a move that matched that of a Golden Immortal's.

    However, under the red palm's strike, the wisp of gray lightning trembled slightly under it before being completely obliterated.

    "Boom! Boom!" Two gigantic red palms with razor-sharp fingers stabbed at the array formation once again. It caused the barrier to quake and ripple.

    As for Qin Yun's and Ancestral Master Zhang's attacks? They were useless.


    Qin Yun and Ancestral Master Zhang fell silent upon seeing this.

    It was expected. The combined attacks of the Buddhists' eighteen Arhats and the Heavenly Courts' 108 Heavenly Constellation Earthly Wraith was still much stronger than the combined attacks of Qin Yun and Ancestral Master Zhang. This was even after being greatly weakened after crossing the tens of thousands of kilometers of the Great Yin domain. Yet, none of their attacks were effective.

    As for the two of them? They were just putting up a meaningless struggle!

    "Since this cannot be stopped, there's no reason to send yourselves to your deaths. Save yourselves. It won't be too late to seek revenge in the future," urged Yang Jian via voice transmission as he watched from the cosmos. "Quickly make a decision. Your homeworld's array formation won't last long."

    "What do I do? What should I do?"

    Ancestral Master Zhang's eyes looked anxious.

    For millennia, he had been protecting this world. It was his homeworld, his roots. He had established a sect here and spread the Dao. His ancestors and descendants were all here... The death of billions of lives in his homeworld felt worse than his own.

    "Qin Yun, what do we do? What other solution do we have?" Ancestral Master Zhang looked at Qin Yun.

    Qin Yun looked up into the distance.

    He looked across the void and easily saw every spot on the continent.

    On the continent, countless people were looking up into the sky. All they saw was a gigantic black cloud that covered half the sky! They were agape from seeing the red arms slam down at the array barriers again and again. They were horrified as all of them prayed.

    "Jade Emperor, please bless us..."

    "Guan Yin Bodhisattva, please bless us..."

    Countless people pleaded to the deities and Buddhas.

    "Xi'er don't be afraid. Hush." There were also young women carrying younger toddlers. The toddlers looked up in the sky feeling terrified.

    All these scenes...

    Qin Yun saw all of them. He even saw the Water race look up into the sky through the Four Seas' surface.

    This was his homeworld which had brought him up. It had billions of innocent lives.

    "Supremacy Star Destruction's arms are very powerful. They can destroy Connate Numinous treasures. He is now damaging the array formation." Ancestral Master Zhang watched from afar. He could see that many of the array disks and flags they had set up were beginning to suffer damage. "The array formation will likely only be able to last five minutes."

    "If there's really no solution, why don't we save a few and depart with them instead of having everyone die together?" said Ancestral Master Zhang finally.

    "There's still one way."

    Qin Yun spoke.

    Ancestral Master Zhang and Yi Xiao looked in astonishment at Qin Yun.

    "What way?" Ancestral Master Zhang revealed a look of delight.

    "Brother Yun, you have a solution?" Yi Xiao found it unbelievable. What solution did Qin Yun have that the Heavenly Courts and Buddhists didn't?


    Qin Yun dispelled a concealment Dharma spell with a thought. All peak third Firmament Essence Souls knew such a concealment Dharma spell. It was used to evade detection by the Heavenly Dao so as to delay any tribulations. It was common for Essence Soul Earth Immortals who lived for hundreds of thousands of years, or even millions of years. There were instances of people in the Three Realms who deliberately stayed in the Essence Soul realm in order to cultivate divine powers. They had strength that matched mighty figures. The Buddhist Arhats were one such example.

    Such concealment Dharma spells were very common.

    Qin Yun had dispelled it and deliberately allowed the Heavenly Dao to sense him, so as to invite the Heavenly Tribulations upon him.

    "Boom!" Black clouds began to gather ten thousand feet above Qin Yun. He looked up and flicked his sleeve, sending Yi Xiao far away.

    "What are you doing?" Ancestral Master Zhang was alarmed. As he saw the tribulation clouds form in the sky, he exclaimed, "It's the Heavenly Tribulation! Are you attempting to transcend the tribulations? Have you created a Skyimmortal Dharmic formulation for the sword immortal lineage!?"

    "This is the only choice," said Qin Yun
