Chapter 974 - Entering the City
"It's time to end this!" Zhao Feng's thunderous voice boomed across the battlefield through everyone's soul.
The entire battlefield instantly died down, and the cries emanating from Sacred Lord Dark Soul were now even more obvious.
The members of the Seventh Prince's team felt their souls darken as lightning crackled.
"Sacred Lord Dark Soul!" Jiang Hao's expression changed dramatically as he looked at Sacred Lord Dark Soul, who had been deformed by Zhao Feng.
"Sacred Lord Dark Soul lost as well…." The Seventh Prince was in a daze as he stood above the city wall.
The fierce aura of the beasts below the city washed over like a tsunami. Even if Sacred Lord Dark Soul hadn't been defeated by Zhao Feng, the Seventh Prince and company on the city wall wouldn't have been able to block the deadly charge of the beast horde for much longer.
"This junior…." Sacred Lord Sharp Edge stopped attacking as well and looked at Zhao Feng.
The reason why the Seventh Prince's team dared to clash against the Ninth Prince's team head-on even though there was such a big difference in their beasts was because they had two Sacred Lords.
However, Sacred Lord Dark Soul and the scholar had been defeated by Zhao Feng alone. No one could imagine what happened in the battle between these three.
Their attention slowly turned toward the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly and the little thieving cat.
Everyone knew about the supportive capabilities of the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly. It was effective even against Sacred Lords. There was most likely something special about the gray cat as well.
Zhao Feng may have taken out some other spiritual pets during the fight as well. Zhao Feng couldn't have defeated the scholar and Sacred Lord Dark Soul by himself. However, even if that was the case, Zhao Feng's strength had still reached a terrifying stage.
"Zhao Feng!" Shi Yulei revealed an expression of admiration and surprise.
"This…!" Old Ying didn't know what to say either.
They had all been acting under Zhao Feng's orders. They thought that Zhao Feng would be able to stall Sacred Lord Dark Soul and the scholar with his strength, and they just needed to wait for the beasts to break through the city wall.
However, in just the short while that they were busy blocking Sacred Lord Sharp Edge, Zhao Feng had finished off Sacred Lord Dark Soul and the scholar by himself. Even if Zhao Feng's injuries had completely recovered, how could he have possibly finished the fight so quickly?
"You're not planning to leave? Then I will start a massacre." Zhao Feng's eyes scanned over the members of the Seventh Prince's team, and the aura of his Sacred Lightning Body rose dramatically.
In the hole in front of Zhao Feng lay Sacred Lord Dark Soul, who was still conscious, and he instantly revealed a fearful look. It was obvious that Zhao Feng's massacre would start with him.
Hearing this, the members of the Ninth Prince's team felt their blood boil with excitement while the members of the Seventh Prince's team had ugly expressions. Zhao Feng definitely had the ability to start a massacre.
The atmosphere on the battlefield became silent.
"Your Highness, let's go." The scholar slowly flew up from behind the city wall. His shirt was ripped, revealing armor beneath it. Even though he had armor on, Zhao Feng's punch was still devastating.
"We won't be able to defeat the Ninth Prince after losing a Sacred Lord. There's still three days left till the end of the second stage. If we conserve our strength right now, there might still be a chance," the scholar's voice sounded in the minds of the other members.
"Lu Tianqi, let's go." The jade sword in Sacred Lord Sharp Edge's hand disappeared.
Lu Tianqi lowered his head in embarrassment and left the battlefield. The Seventh Prince, Zhang Yi, and company also left the city walls.
From the moment Sacred Lord Dark Soul was defeated, they knew that they had no hope left. They just weren't willing to accept the reality of being defeated by the Ninth Prince's team.
One had to know that, in the ranking of the princes' chances, the Ninth Prince was ranked seventh, while the Seventh Prince was ranked third.
"We won." The Ninth Prince looked at the city that contained so many weird buildings.
He had heard a lot about the things within the Heaven's Legacy Cities, but he had never been in one before.
On top of that, the four Heaven's Legacy Cities were where the third stage – the clash between princes – would be held. This meant that, as of right now, the Ninth Prince had the right to participate in the clash between princes.
"Quick, let's go in." The main reason Old Ying was participating in the Crown Prince trial was to help the Ninth Prince, but right now, even he was slightly impatient. He had also never been in a Heaven's Legacy City, and there would definitely be a lot of intel and ancient secrets within it.
The members of the Ninth Prince's team entered the Heaven's Legacy City with excitement, and the situation of the four Heaven's Legacy Cities changed for the first time. The one that left was the Seventh Prince and the one that entered was the Ninth Prince.
"The Seventh Prince lost."
"Zhao Feng's beast horde has the ability to decide the victor."
"No, the important thing is that Sacred Lord Dark Soul was defeated by Zhao Feng personally."
Many experts from the three princes' side were stunned. None of them had thought this would be the result. They hadn't even taken down the Eighth Prince's Heaven's Legacy City yet with their tripartite alliance, but the Ninth Prince had defeated the Seventh Prince, who was ranked even higher, on his own.
"Brother Second Prince, should we change our target and attack the Ninth Prince instead?" the Fifth Prince asked carefully.
The Seventh Prince's team and the Ninth Prince's team had both just undergone a big battle. Their beast horde should have sustained some casualties, and some of the members should be injured.
"No, they still have too many beasts, and Zhao Feng's personal strength is not weaker than normal Sacred Lords." The Second Prince faintly shook his head.
When the owner of a Heaven's Legacy City changed, the city would close for a day, so they couldn't attack even if they wanted to. In this period of time, the Ninth Prince's team might buy even more beasts or a defensive array. Furthermore, the Seventh Prince wouldn't give up so easily.
The Second Prince and company had to act carefully.
"Hmph, this is even better. After all, the third stage isn't about the beasts. The Ninth Prince will be less of a threat." The Thirteenth Prince pretended that he didn't care, and he harrumphed coldly in his Heaven's Legacy City.
"What power!" Yu Tianhao's eyes were trained on Zhao Feng the whole time, so he had seen Zhao Feng's display in the fight. Although Zhao Feng had to re-cultivate and was just a King right now, his strength was even more terrifying than before.
There were many metallic rooms not far away from the city gates, and they were there to let the members rest. The Ninth Prince walked into one of the rooms and pressed his pseudo Crown Prince Seal down onto a stone tablet. The gates of the Heaven's Legacy City instantly started to close.
"This defensive mechanism will only last for one day. There's still three days left till the second stage ends. Don't be off guard," Old Ying said.
Zhao Feng faintly nodded his head. This rule was very logical; it allowed everyone that had just experienced a big fight to rest.
"Okay, everyone can do whatever they want and find their own fortune now, but all of you must gather here the day after tomorrow," Old Ying said in an excited tone before rushing off.
The others then left and scouted out this unique city.
Outside and inside the Heaven's Legacy City were like two different worlds. This place was peaceful, calm, glorious, and mysterious. Battle and danger would never appear here.
The little thieving cat was extremely excited as it led the way for Zhao Feng.
Like last time, they first went to a book store and bought a map of the city. Zhao Feng roughly scanned over it and found that this Heaven's Legacy City was slightly smaller than the one in the Eighteen Corners Pirate Sacred Land, but after remembering that there were four Heaven's Legacy Cities here, he didn't think about it too much.
"Let's go to the Spiritual Pet Garden first," Zhao Feng told the little thieving cat.
The little thieving cat was helpless. All of the resources that they had obtained in this ancient dimension were under Zhao Feng's control, so it could only follow Zhao Feng.
"May I ask if you need us to take care of your pets, or do you want to train some pets?" A short elder automaton slowly walked over.
Zhao Feng paused for a moment. He could understand what taking care of the pets meant; it meant that he could leave his spiritual pets here and let the Spiritual Pet Garden take care of them and heal them. But what did "training the pets" mean?
"Spiritual pet training involves using unique methods to train your pet and strengthen certain aspects or give them new abilities," the elder gave a faint smile and explained.
Zhao Feng nodded his head to show that he understood. Training meant unleashing the potential within the spiritual pet.
However, Zhao Feng felt that it was better to just infuse a powerful bloodline instead. This was more effective and didn't require as much time.
"I need three Emperor-level flying spiritual pets," Zhao Feng told him.
"Sure." The elder reached out and pointed with his finger. A white screen with countless images of beasts appeared. These images quickly flashed by until only a few flying Emperor-level spiritual pets were left behind.
"This price…" Zhao Feng's eyebrows furrowed slightly.
The beasts on the screen were extremely rare, but they were much more expensive than the other Heaven's Legacy City he went to.
However, since Zhao Feng was wealthy now, he didn't try negotiating with the old man over the three Emperor-level spiritual pets.
At the end, Zhao Feng picked three relatively normal flying pets.
Three pieces of Dragon Jade appeared in Zhao Feng's hand after he left the Spiritual Pet Garden. The three flying spiritual pets each grabbed one with their claws.
The three spiritual pets instantly flew into the sky and left the Heaven's Legacy City.
"Those are the last three pieces of Dragon Jade," Zhao Feng said gently.
Ever since entering the Imperial Tombs, Zhao Feng had obtained a total of eight Dragon Jades from other groups. When he was with Zhou Su'er, Zhao Feng had given four pieces of Dragon Jade to the ancient Yao bird and three random flying beasts he had tamed in the Imperial Tombs. After meeting up with Old Ying, Zhao Feng tamed a black eagle and gave it another piece of Dragon jade.
Since time was tight after meeting with Shen Jizi's group, Zhao Feng had no time to find any other flying beasts. Now that he had entered the Heaven's Legacy City, Zhao Feng could now get rid of the last three pieces of Dragon Jade.
"I hope that these spiritual pets will be able to give me a surprise." Zhao Feng smiled faintly as he murmured to himself.
Dragon Jade could only absorb the draconic providence around itself. Zhao Feng holding onto nine pieces of Dragon Jade wouldn't change the total amount of draconic providence he could obtain. Therefore, Zhao Feng made the decision to use these flying beasts to gather draconic providence right from the beginning.
The little thieving cat jumped in front of Zhao Feng.
"You want to go to the forge?" Zhao Feng understood what the little thieving cat meant.
Since there was a lot of time, Zhao Feng decided to go with the little thieving cat.
The little thieving cat leapt into a tall building.
The forge mainly created specific items or strengthened them.
