The crowd was naturally moved by the impressive scene in Myriad Formation .
“Buzz . ” Clear outlines and divine halos emerged . They expanded through the realms and create bridges, making the kingdom look like a city of heavens .
An immense aura took form, making everyone feel as if an ultimate power was gathering on this kingdom .
In this blink of an eye, the grand dao power of Nine Secrets seemed to be under Myriad Formation’s control . The kingdom became shrouded with mist and fog, turning into a scene of paradise .
“Their national formation, I can’t believe they have activated it . ” An older expert became startled .
“Incredible, it’ll give plenty of blessings for the emperor . ” All eyes were on Myriad Formation .
“Is this one of the three great formations?” Another asked .
Myriad Formation Kingdom was known to have three great formations created by their founding emperor . Rumor has it that they were shockingly powerful .
Some said that their strongest formation was actually the kingdom itself . The entire land used to be a naturally-formed formation . Later on, Myriad Formation True Emperor started the kingdom and only slightly augmented the land, turning it into a peerless formation .
By using the momentum and geography of the land, people believed that once activated, this kingdom could borrow the strength of Nine Secrets System .
Because of this, some speculated that breaking this national formation would be exceedingly difficult . Their ancestors even proclaimed that no one could take their formation down .
Supporting this national formation and the momentum of the land required massive resources . The kingdom would never do it outside of an existential crisis so the crowd was quite surprised .
“Buzz . ” Wisps of light appeared all around Nine Secrets starting from Myriad Formation Kingdom and spread to the rest . These bright runes seemed to be pulling the power of the system into Myriad Formation .
This resulted in the kingdom becoming even more mighty with a terrifying aura .
“Eight Formation True Emperor isn’t confident so he needs to use his kingdom and borrow the power of the system . ” Everyone understood right away .
This was meant to grant an insane boost to the emperor’s own power so that he could be at the same level as Li Qiye .
“Well, who can be confident going against the king right now?” One ancestor said: “Not to mention Eight Formation True Emperor, even Lucidity King might need to think twice . ”
Everyone let out an awkward smile since they have seen Li Qiye’s abilities, allowing him to treat Eternals like insects .
“Doesn’t the emperor understand the Immortal Slaying Ancient Formation? I thought this formation is heaven-defying?” A youth said .
Prior to this, people have been singing praises of this formation so the youths felt nothing but respect and awe towards it .
“That’s in the past, but it’s not enough right now . No one expected for the king to be such a monster . ” An older master smiled wryly .
Everyone thought that once the emperor had control of this formation, no one in the younger generation would be his match . Even older Eternals would feel some qualms going against it . This would stabilize the emperor’s reign .
But the king shattered everyone’s confidence . The emperor and his formation weren’t enough .
“I mean, isn’t it obvious? Ma Mingchun is the real deal, a tough Eternal . I’m not denying that Eight Formation True Emperor is a brilliant youth, but a two-palace emperor has limits and not on the same level as an Eternal . Even with his formation, he’ll only be able to fight against an Eternal at best, one that isn’t as strong as Ma Mingchun . So, how is he going to fight against the king?” The ancestor paused and looked towards Myriad Formation Kingdom: “In order to have a real match, the emperor needs to use the resources and foundation of his kingdom to borrow the power of the system, that will give him a sliver of hope . Anything less is a suicidal endeavor . ”
The reversal of roles left everyone speechless . It wasn’t long ago that everyone thought of the emperor as an incredible genius . But now, the king has become an unsurpassable and oppressive mountain . Even the emperor paled in comparison .
“How exciting . ” A leisure voice interrupted the anticipating spectators .
People looked back and saw Li Qiye coming out of his stone hall . He stood on top of his peak to look at Myriad Formation Kingdom . Liu Chuqing and Bingchi Hanyu followed behind him .
Hanyu looked quite obedient with spring in her face . The already beautiful woman became even more seductive and tender .
The crowd glanced at each other . Despite not knowing what had happened, they still had a pretty good guess .
Some sighed and lamented, sympathizing with the emperor for being so furious . He probably had a good guess too .
“His Majesty is coming . ” A whisper sounded .
The experts in Nine-linked Mountains got on their knees without needing to be reminded - aware that just a single thought of the king could make their heads roll on the ground .
“Okay, just watch the show, no need to be so serious . Do as you please . ” Li Qiye waved his sleeve .
The crowd heaved a sigh of relief and stood up . Some felt all kinds of emotions but there was nothing they could do about it .
Bingchi Hanyu and Chuqing took out a chair and table then began to serve him . Hanyu who was arrogant and spoiled looked just like a maid now .
“A bit interesting . ” He sat down on his chair and smiled, his eyes glancing at the kingdom .
Hanyu also looked over only to sigh softly . She looked away and remained quiet .
“Boom!” An explosion caused the kingdom to shake . A being emerged inside the boundless radiance, looking just like a dominating god with a surging imperial aura .
“Eight Formation True Emperor . ” The crowd whispered his title .
Some then stole glimpses at Li Qiye . This emperor was the one who chased Li Qiye from his throne, turning him into a fleeing dog without a master .
But now, the king showed his invincibility . Even the untouchable emperor needed to act with full caution .
“Rumble!” Beams of light began shooting at the emperor .
The power of both the national formation and the system poured into his very being .
He resonated with the grand dao and initiated numerous dao laws . Each law was as big as a waterfall pushing down on the firmaments .
