The thirty-six sovereigns stood before Li Qiye, full of murderous intent . Their armor plates were dazzling, making them seem like gods from above . People uncontrollably felt a sense of reverence and fear .
“Junior, how do you want to die?” One of them coldly uttered, ready to kill .
“Well, they are the pillars of Everlasting for a reason . ” One ancestor murmured .
The power of these beings could indeed destroy many sects in the system . Plus, Everlasting had more ace cards too . No wonder why they dared to try and take over .
Li Qiye continued with his lazy posture: “You think too highly of yourselves, killing me with such meager skills? I have thousands of ways to kill you all without lifting a finger . Alright, watch . Talk about killing me after surviving this . ”
Having said that, a new portal connecting to a different realm seemingly opened above him .
Inside was an incomparable old tree that had withstood the test of time . It looked distant from this world so people could only see a faint outline .
Nevertheless, it exuded a vast amount of life energy, permeating the entire Alchemy Hut . Everyone felt that the air has been refreshed and couldn’t help breathing in . Their fatigue was swept away and replaced by an unprecedented sense of relaxation .
“What is that?” Someone murmured in astonishment .
“That’s the divine tree from Herb-plucking? The legend is true?” One ancestor wondered .
Rumor has it that such a tree existed on Herb-plucking but was never seen before . So now, this tree appearing above Li Qiye made people recall the tale .
“Rustle . ” More old roots came out from the ground and blocked the thirty-six sovereigns .
“Just rotten branches, can’t reach the apex . ” One Dragon Sovereign said with disdain .
However, all the roots came together to form a massive figure; the sovereigns paled in comparison . It was virtually a mountain with clouds floating around its shoulders .
“Still just rotten branches . ” The thirty-six sovereigns didn’t give a damn .
“Is that so?” The portal on top of Li Qiye flew up and floated behind the wooden giant . The faint tree became large as well as if it was a sky with green leaves protecting this giant .
The majestic ocean of life from the tree poured and made the individual roots extremely tough, back to when it was the strongest . The barks became as tough as dragon scales, impossible to penetrate .
This wooden giant seemed to be coming back to life and brimming with power . Just one wave alone could blow away the heaven and earth .
People no longer saw a wooden amalgamation but a living being with massive power . A wooden race of god wouldn’t look different from this .
This immense change made the crowd take a deep breath . This being made out of old branches had become divine .
“The tree is giving its life and power . ” One ancestor could tell what was going on: “It is incredible, capable of changing something ordinary into magic . ”
The Untethered herself glanced over at the peak then the portal and the tree . She knew more compared to others so she was aware of this portal .
“Break!” The sovereigns didn’t want to give this giant any chance and attacked . They were aware that it would only grow stronger, and with enough time, it would become a deity .
“Boom!” Their chest poured out rays again to form a pillar of light with a world-destroying power . It shot towards the wooden giant, wishing to destroy it in one go .
However, the giant flipped his palm and a wooden shield appeared . It landed in front and acted as a massive wall spanning across the entire area . No one could ever surpass its great height .
“Boom!” The pillar of light crazily assaulted the shield . Multiple layers were being burnt .
Alas, it was simply too thick . An unreasonable amount of time would be needed for complete penetration .
“Whoosh!” The giant didn’t want and slammed its other hand at the thirty-six sovereigns as if it was a hammer .
“Watch it!” The sovereigns didn’t try to block it and flew up instead . The wooden hand in the shape of a hammer quaked the world . Many sovereigns were trembling from the shockwave .
Because of their retreat, their combined pillar of light disappeared right away . The giant took advantage of this and used its shield to sweep through the area, blowing away all the clouds and winds .
“Boom!” There was nowhere to run now so the sovereigns roared and used their best attacks . One took out a large pagoda, another a sword, and a few more relied on their armors…
Chipped wood flew everywhere . The shield suffered damage but it was too large to matter . Moreover, the old tree was still supplying it with life force .
It didn’t take long before the broken places grew again into perfection . The sovereigns couldn’t destroy the shield as a result .
The giant added its hammer into the mix . Shield and hammer left the sovereigns in a difficult spot and had to retreat continuously .
The crowd was speechless . These sovereigns went all out and still couldn’t defeat this wooden giant .
They looked quite tattered and beaten right now while feeling rage and helplessness . These beings have swept through the system before, completely unbeatable . Today, a single giant was utterly subduing them, making it look like an unfair battle . This was too humiliating!
