Chapter 625 Functions of the Blood Mustering Bead


Thanks to Chen Feng’s guidance, Wen Shaoxiu’s team of five was able to keep on blocking the enemies’ attacks . However, they were only capable of blocking . They were in an absolutely disadvantageous spot . They did not even have the time to take a breather .


The lands quaked as the entire Mulberry Scholar City shook . The cultivators from Nine Firmaments Palace had attacked . The half-step Human Immortals from Nine Firmaments Palace were already very close to reaching the Human Immortal stage . Back when Chen Feng investigated them the first time, he could already see that they were filled with power . Their bodies were like mountains, with well-tempered fleshly bodies and formidable primary energies . They could already be considered as peak-level experts amongst those on the same level as them .

The lands shook and streams of yellow energy streams emerged from the ground to envelop Wen Shaoxiu’s team . Immediately, Wen Shaoxiu and the others felt their bodies becoming heavier . It felt as though a great mountain was pressing down on their bodies . Their movement speed plummeted as a result .

“The force of gravity!” Wen Shaoxiu shouted, gnashing his teeth .


The cultivator wielding the small, dark-red drum attacked as well . The sounds of drum were dull, but the resulting soundwaves spread out to affect Wen Shaoxiu and the others . Immediately, all five were wounded . In the beginning, they were able to defend themselves by relying on the defences of their body armours . Quickly, however, the five of them found that the soundwaves contained not just physical attacks . They were also capable of rioting their blood streams .

The blood streams within their bodies were thrown into a state of chaos and even their flow of primary energies ended up in a haphazard state . Finally, Ma Tianfang could no longer endure and he sprayed out blood from his mouth .

“Chen Feng, things are not looking good . ” Wen Shaoxiu secretly cried .

“Damn it! I got careless . How can they be so powerful?” Chen Feng could not stop himself from swearing aloud . Although he had prepared for many possible deviations in the plan, he had not expected the four half-step Human Immortals from Nine Firmaments Palace to be so powerful . Their strength had exceeded Chen Feng’s expectations .

In terms of cultivation base, they were already almost on par with Wen Shaoxiu . Additionally, they had Sacred artefacts in their hands . There were also assassins trying to execute sneak attacks at Wen Shaoxiu’s team on their side . The advantage in numbers gave them the upper hand in a straight-up fight .

Naturally, if the assassins were not there, Wen Shaoxiu’s team could have fought against the cultivators from Nine Firmaments Palace . However, that was not the case . Barring any accidents, Wen Shaoxiu’s team would certainly be killed by the assassins’ side .

Sou! Sou! Sou! Sou! Sou!

Several sword beams erupted simultaneously from the sky . The assassins who were hiding in the dark had finally found their opportunity . They wanted to kill off Wen Shaoxiu’s team with this attack .

Chen Feng’s heart lurched . Just as he was thinking about personally attacking, a stream of sword light, looking like a winding river of autumn waters, streaked through the sky to quickly enter the courtyard . Next, like a flowing rivulet, it enveloped Wen Shaoxiu’s team of five .

Pa! Pa! Pa! Pa! Pa! Pa!

Sword beams kept exploding . Every one of the sword beams was capable of breaking a mountain apart . And yet, those sword beams were incapable of shaking the rivulet of autumn waters . The river of sword light was like a starry river from the Nine Heavens, as deep as the ocean .

It was none other than Jian Zhiqiu . During that critical moment, he had utilized the Autumn Waters Sword Array to send out the move, which blocked all of the assassins’ attacks .

“Brother Wen, this is a good chance! Hurry up and attack!” Chen Feng’s voice rang out beside Wen Shaoxiu’s ear again .

“This is truly a good opportunity!”

Wen Shaoxiu shouted, extending his index finger, which swiftly tapped his Boltflame Armour . The already damaged armour radiated with a dazzling light once again . The power of both lightning and fire kept emerging, giving the impression that Wen Shaoxiu had become much bigger .


Wen Shaoxiu quickly rushed forward and attacked . The Sacred Boltflame Sword in his hand transformed into many sword silhouettes, which encompassed the sky . The stacks of sword silhouettes then swept forward .


One of the assassins’ arm was hacked off .


A deep wound appeared across the chest of another assassin . Blood sprayed out as a result and it was possible to even see the internal organs within his body .


Again, another assassin was struck as the sword silhouette inflicted a sizable wound on his arm .

Wen Shaoxiu’s sudden attack managed to wound three assassins . Appearance wise, the three assassins were not badly wounded . Their combat strength did not dip at all due to the wounds . For Chen Feng, however, that was enough .

“Good, good! Excellent! Bloody Netherguide Art! Grand Blood Guidance Art!” Chen Feng shouted softly, but his voice became like thunder and the Blood Mustering Bead shook slightly .

Three invisible, oscillating waves descended upon the three assassins . To be more exact, they descended upon the assassins’ wounds .

The Blood Mustering Bead’s aura became like agile snakes as they rapidly moved into their bodies through the wounds . When they re-emerged, the streams of auras brought out the blood essence of the assassins along with them .

Next, a terrifying scene unfolded before them all .

The assassin with the hacked arm watched as streams of blood essence kept flowing out from the severed part of his arm . At the same time, his body kept shrinking in size .


Having undergone deathly training, this assassin was someone who did not fear death . At that moment, however, he cried out in dread . However, he only managed that one scream before his voice was cut off . All of his blood essence had been pulled out from his body, leaving only a thin set of human skin, which drifted down to the ground .

At the same time, the other two assassins who were wounded earlier were also suffering from the same plight .


The assassin’s chest burst . Like a volcanic eruption, blood gushed out from his chest, terrifying the assassin senseless . He tossed away his sword and both his hands flew to cover his chest . However, his actions were futile .

The assassin was incapable of resisting the formidable devouring force . Soon enough, the might of the Blood Mustering Bead had reduced the assassin into another set of human skin .

The third assassin, the one with the lightest wound of them all, reacted quickly . The instant the wound on his arm erupted with blood, he swung with his other arm to hack down his entire arm . It was as though he was chopping wood .

Seeing that, Chen Feng chuckled .

In the case of poisoning, or some other form of wounds, his decisive action of cutting off his whole arm was indeed the best response . However, Chen Feng was utilizing the Blood Mustering Bead to display the Bloody Netherguide Art . The bigger the wound on the assassin, the better it would be for him .

“Ha ha ha! Did this fellow get kicked in the head before? He is actually using this method to deal with it? He’ll die even faster . ” Chen Feng could not stop himself from laughing out loud .


A stream of blood essence gushed out from the assassin’s wound . In just the blink of an eye, the assassin was turned into human skin as well .

Earlier, Wen Shaoxiu had attacked, leaving wounds on the three assassins .

After that, Chen Feng secretly attacked, utilizing a bloody technique to kill off the three assassins . Every one there gaped at the scene . Fear crept into their hearts . It was not just the assassins’ side, even Wen Shaoxiu’s side were left frowning .

Chen Feng’s actions are too overbearing . No guesses are needed . This is a very heretical type of demonic technique, Wen Shaoxiu thought .

Si! Si! Si! Si!

The blood from two of the now-dead assassins flowed into the Blood Mustering Bead, increasing its strength once again .  

However, the blood essence from the third assassin hovered in the air, wriggling about before finally condensing into a fist-sized ball of blood .

“This is bad, run!”

Seeing the ball of blood, the earthen power cultivator from Nine Firmaments Palace instinctively sensed danger . Backing away, he shouted a warning .


Chen Feng shouted and the fist-sized ball of blood abruptly exploded . It was as though a massive clump of lightning bolts had exploded there . A thunderous boom rang out as countless blood arrows, blood wires and blood strands shot towards the assassins and cultivators from Nine Firmaments Palace .

All of them were formed using the blood essence of a half-step Human Immortal, the essence of his cultivation, something that he had spent years to cultivate . Utilizing the Bloody Netherguide Art, Chen Feng turned the blood essence into an explosive power . The attacking power behind this move was far beyond that of the average flying sword .

It was a good plan from Chen Feng . He was not hoping that the attacks could kill the enemies . Rather, it was simpler . He only wanted to inflict open wounds on their bodies .


The earthen power cultivator from Nine Firmaments Palace, Xu Shan, stamped his foot and yellow light enveloped his body . The yellow light – the power of earth – easily blocked the blood arrows, blood wires and blood strands .


The small drum rang out and soundwaves vibrated the air, causing the incoming blood-type attacks to disintegrate while in mid-air .

The other two cultivators brought out their Sacred artefacts as well to defend against the attacks .

As for the assassins, they displayed various techniques and sword light flashed out as their figures flitted about . Most of the assassins managed to dodge the wave of attacks .

Chen Feng grew disappointed . He had felt very confident about this attack . However, it only managed to wound two assassins . Additionally, after they were wounded, the two assassins immediately hid themselves within void space . At the same time, they also brought out magic treasures to protect their bodies . One of the assassins decided to go all out . He brought out a bronze bell and used it to envelop his whole body . Chen Feng didn’t even know how he should attack the assassin .

As expected of the peak-level experts in the Sky Human stage . Their reaction rate, strength and cultivation bases are all very high . They are not easy to deal with, Chen Feng thought .

Chen Feng had managed to kill six people so far . However, those six assassins were the weakest amongst all the assassins present . The remaining assassins were harder to deal with .

“I’ll deal with these two fellows first,” Chen Feng muttered . The Blood Mustering Bead then radiated out two rays of bloody light, which flew towards the two wounded assassins .


The assassin who was hiding within void space was forced out . His body shuddered again and again as his muscles twitched . His blood vessels swelled up like earthworms, his blood charging rapidly through the interior of his body, desirous of bursting out from his blood vessels .

However, the assassin had already taken the Blood Pacifying Pill . He also pasted two dimension-type talismans on his body . In addition, he was personally channelling his energy to resist Chen Feng’s attack .

Although he appeared to be in an unfavourable situation, it was not as bad as the previous assassins who were instantly turned into human skins .

Chi! Chi! Chi! Chi!

Droplets of blood began oozing out from the assassin’s pores . Chen Feng gritted his teeth . He was already pushing the Blood Mustering Bead to the limits of his ability . However, this was the best he could do . It was simply impossible for him to quickly kill off the assassin .

On the other hand, the assassin who utilized the bronze bell to protect himself was completely safe . The bronze bell blocked the bloody light that the Blood Mustering Bead had sent out . Due to that, Chen Feng was incapable of unleashing the follow-up attacks on the assassin .

“Hey, I may not be able to kill you fellows, but I can disrupt you fellows!”

Chen Feng chuckled and changed his method of attack . He instead utilized the Bloody Netherguide Art’s Chaos of Blood technique . Invisible, oscillating waves spread out to cover a large area, affecting the four cultivators from Nine Firmaments Palace and the assassins there .

Sure enough, under the assault of the Bloody Netherguide Art’s technique, the blood streams within their bodies began roiling about, having fallen into a state of utter chaos . Although it could not fatally damage them, it could still greatly diminish their combat power .

Chen Feng himself had no other options . He had only just begun practicing the Bloody Netherguide Art and was still not familiar with many of its secret techniques . He could not master some of its killer moves in such a short time . Additionally, the Blood Mustering Bead itself was a damaged item . It was incapable of unleashing its full power . Thus, Chen Feng had chosen to utilize this method to influence the battle and buy time .
