In those worlds, there were countless beings that were being reproduced in chaos, thus allowing the worlds to grow rapidly before falling during their prime. In the end, they were destroyed in a major calamity.
Seeing this scene, Lin Li got chills. Clearly, the other party was no longer limited to the Hunter profession. The countless worlds that were constantly emerging and being destroyed were exactly what the seven pieces of the debris of the stars had evolved from. They were true Sanctuary-level Magical Domains. Those worlds were real, and so were the beings in them. The person who controlled the Magical Domains was the creator of those worlds, and being able to create worlds was a level that only those that were at the peak of the Sanctuary-realm could reach.
In Anril, the profession of mages was known as the best of all precisely because a mage could create their own Magical Domain with their comprehension of nomological power after entering the Legendary-realm. In the Magical Domain, the mage who created it would be the master. That was something that other professions like Sword Sages and Assassins could not achieve.
Hence, most of the time, mages who had their own Magical Domains would be able to exert much more combat power than other professions at the same level. Besides, the difference would become even more obvious once one reached the Sanctuary-realm because mages in the Sanctuary-realm were true sages in the entire world.
Therefore, if the incarnation of the Immortal King was just a Hunter that was three levels superior to Lin Li, Lin Li was not truly helpless. However, the incarnation of the Immortal King had already given him a direct blow before he could even activate his Magical Domain.
Lin Li was extremely bitter when he looked at the scene of the rise and fall of the worlds. The Immortal King was clearly out to kill him. However, Lin Li had no other choice but to fight. When the Immortal King left just now, he had already secretly experimented with the Sky Castle’s control crystal, but he didn’t get any reaction.
In fact, after thinking about it, he realized that it made sense since the Sky Castle belonged to the Immortal King, and the control crystal was left behind by him. The Well of the Sun was also in the world created by the Immortal King. Since the Immortal King had given Lin Li such a test, how could he have missed out the loophole of the control crystal?
Therefore, even though he knew that he was much weaker than the Immortal King’s incarnation, Lin Li had no choice but to bite the bullet and go toe-to-toe against it.
With that realization, Lin Li dared not hold back at all. The moment that the Immortal King’s incarnation displayed that power, Lin Li, too, activated all seven pieces of his debris of the stars.
The seven pieces of the debris of the stars, namely Holy Light, Gloomy Dark, Polar Snow, Raging Flames, Thunderbolt, Rebirth, and Nothingness, were all presented in different forms and glowing with different colors. They were continuously flying around Lin Li. Under Lin Li’s control, the seven Laws of origin that constituted the world formed another Domain World in Lin Li’s surroundings. It looked like another world that was somewhat illusory as if it existed in another dimension.
However, compared to the Immortal King’s incarnation, Lin Li’s World Domain was obviously inferior. The World Laws that the Immortal King mastered contained countless worlds that were emerging and getting destroyed. The destruction of each world would produce a terrifying force that would make everything collapse. That was the power that could only be comprehended and mastered by a Sanctuary powerhouse who had reached the peak of the Sanctuary-realm, and possessed the ability to break through the restraint of the World Laws of this world.
However, the seven pieces of the debris of the stars that Lin Li controlled merely formed a seemingly stable world that was slowly developing. It looked barren and desolate, devoid of any signs of life or vitality. However, Lin Li had to create such a world because he had devoured a portion of the soul memory of Osric’s clone in the world of Alanna back then.
The Immortal King’s Soul Imprint had already said everything that should have been said. The only purpose of the incarnation was to kill Lin Li. With the release of the magical waves, the incarnation finally awoke from his slumber with killing intent in his eyes. Next, he pointed his hand at Lin Li, and his Magical Domain that consisted of worlds that were continuously spawning and getting destroyed collided with Lin Li’s Magical Domain.
The sounds of the collision of the Magical Domains of the two Sanctuary powerhouses was groundbreaking and earth-shattering. The shock waves of the collision alone caused the entire Well of the Sun to vibrate violently like a boat in a storm. It was as if it would topple over at any moment.
Amidst the vibrations, there were groans coming from the surrounding space, as well as the sounds of things shattering continuously. Various space rifts continuously opened up and closed in the void. Fortunately, this world was created by the Immortal King, and despite the collision between the Magical Domains of two Sanctuary powerhouses, it did not collapse, and instead continuously repaired itself.
However, the people in the expedition below were in a dire situation. They were initially already forced to retreat because of the magical waves that were erupting from the Immortal King’s incarnation. The aftershock of the collision of the two Sanctuary-level Magical Domains was the reason that the magical defenses of the expedition continuously shattered one after another, and even the casting speed of the tender Elemental Wyrm Xiao Hua could not make up for the broken magic defenses in time.
Watching the violent collision of Magical Domains in the sky and feeling the power of the unstoppable aftershocks made Archbishop Martin feel like he was on the verge of tears. He initially thought that he could earn a fortune in the Sky Castle, but after experiencing the consecutive ordeals, he felt terribly vexed as they were all almost fatal.
Archbishop Martin and the others finally understood that even if they reached the peak of the Legendary-realm, and were said to be only one step away from the Sanctuary-realm, they were still insignificant in the eyes of the Sanctuary powerhouses, who could crush them without even using any special means.
Since the Alchemy Colossuses of the Rotterdam Kingdom had never been repaired due to the fact that the expedition’s members were putting up defenses, they could only hide in the team and rely on the defensive spells of the other two forces to resist the powerful impacts. However, in the collision this time, the layers of magic defense were shattered one after another. In the end, the members of the Brilliance Shrine and the Tower of Dusk could only fend for themselves. No one could be bothered to defend the large Alchemy Colossuses.
The aftershock of the Sanctuary-level Magical Domains’s collision alone instantly swept up the several Alchemy Colossuses that were at the front of the team. Their massive bodies were blown upwards like leaves that fell in the wind. Unable to resist at all, the Alchemy Colossuses below lit up before exploding because of the mana. Afterward, they were slammed at a spot much further away from the expedition, with no means to stand up at all.
Although the rest of the members of the expedition were close together because of the unique battle formations of their respective forces, they were in a mess when continuously compensating for the defensive magic layers that were destroyed. The few powerhouses who were at the peak of the Legendary-realm almost fought with all their might to sustain the impact, but the fear in everyone’s eyes would not dissipate.
In the sky, Lin Li no longer had any time to care about the situation of the expedition. Faced directly with the incarnation of the Immortal King and the collision, he was in an even more dangerous situation than the expedition.
The moment the two domains collided, the Domain World that Lin Li controlled seemed to have reached its doomsday as the sky collapsed and the earth shattered, followed by the mass deaths of the living creatures that had evolved in it. The space of the Domain World also seemed to have broken like glass during the collisions, creating large cracks that not only destroyed the spatial structure of the Domain World, but also devoured the power that constituted the world.
Even though Lin Li possessed nearly infinite mental strength, and was trying his best to control the seven pieces of the debris of the stars to stabilize and strengthen the Magical Domain, the collision that did not involve any fancy tricks still put him in a very dangerous situation. The Domain World that Lin Li controlled was constantly shattering from the impact of the collision, and the seven pieces of the debris of the stars that were integrated into the domain kept flickering and appearing, as if they would be forced out of the Domain World at any moment.
Damn it, who’s the Sanctuary-mage here!? Through the collision of Magical Domains, Lin Li could completely feel that the domain controlled by the Immortal King’s incarnation was far stronger and more solid than his own. The collision was akin to a collision between an egg and a rock. The incarnation’s Magical Domain was a rock, while his was a fragile egg.
Moreover, through such a collision of domains, Lin Li also gained a clear understanding that the Immortal King’s incarnation used the debris of the stars to create this world, and not any other magical weapon. Lin Li could not figure out why there were two identical sets of debris of the stars, but he knew that he was clearly far inferior to the Immortal King’s incarnation in terms of controlling his.
Lin Li didn’t dare to continue colliding. Even though he had survived the collision once, his Magical Domain might really shatter like an egg if it were to happen once or twice more. He held the Helios’ Scepter again, and quickly gathered the full power of his domain on the scepter while repairing the spatial rifts in his Domain World.
However, just as Lin Li was about to launch a counterattack against the Immortal King’s incarnation, he saw the latter doing something that frightened him out of his wits.
The incarnation in its Magical Domain suddenly raised its hand towards the void, and countless specks of light appeared in the sky at the same time. Next, the inconspicuous orbs converged and gathered towards the hand of the incarnation in large amounts, quickly forming a hunting bow that had a quaint design.
The Stars of Fury! Lin Li couldn’t help but shudder with his eyes wide open. Lin Li was way too familiar with the hunting bow in the hand of the Immortal King’s incarnation. It was the Stars of Fury, the only weapon that could maximize the power of the seven pieces of the debris of the stars.
Previously, Lin Li was still feeling thankful and glad that although the Immortal King’s incarnation possessed the debris of the stars, he did not have the Stars of Fury. However, in the blink of an eye, the Stars of Fury actually appeared in the incarnation’s hand. It was almost the bane of his existence. The combination of the debris of the stars and the Stars of Fury would be strong enough to even attack the gods in the sky, what more a greenhorn like him who had just recently stepped into the Sanctuary-realm.
In his heart, Lin Li once again cursed the Immortal King thoroughly. At the same time, he dared not dawdle, and pointed forward the Helios’ Scepter, which contained the condensed power of the world.
It was not some type of magic spell, but a mere application of the seven types of power that constituted the world. At this moment, they merged to form a seven-colored pillar of light that attacked the Immortal King’s incarnation with a groundbreaking might, continuously penetrating the Domain World. In the blink of an eye, countless worlds were pierced through and destroyed.
However, although the Immortal King’s incarnation was only less than a kilometer away from Lin Li, the seven-colored pillar of light that constantly pierced through the worlds still did not manage to attack the incarnation. It was as if the distance between the incarnation and Lin Li was infinitely extended under the effect of the countless worlds that were spawning and being destroyed. Perhaps the seven-colored pillar of light might still be unable to strike the target even after a day or two.
At this moment, the Immortal King’s incarnation had also raised the Stars of Fury in his hand, and grabbed the air with his other hand. An arrow that was made of the power of the world appeared. The incarnation then skillfully put the arrow on the bow and pulled it, after which the arrow flew through the layers of worlds, instantly colliding with the seven-colored pillar of light with the sounds of the bowstring shattering.
In a split second, the colorful pillar of light that was in contact with the arrow shattered into bits, and the arrow shot in the direction that the pillar of light had come from—towards Lin Li.
From the way the Stars of Fury appeared, Lin Li knew that the Stars of Fury that the Immortal King’s incarnation had was definitely not authentic. It was very likely that it had been condensed by the Immortal King using his mana. When he explored the Sky Castle for the first time, the debris of the stars, Thunderbolt, that appeared in the last realm of the Seven-Realm Spiral was in the form of a bow that the Immortal King created using the Laws of the Stars of Fury and his mana. Hence, he had long known that the Immortal King had such an ability.
However, Lin Li could also feel that the Stars of Fury in the Immortal King’s hand, which was also condensed with magic power, was much more powerful than the one in the Seven-Realm Spiral. When he saw the arrow darting over, he was shocked and turned as pale as a sheet. If the arrow were to hit him, his life would really be over!
Lin Li quickly waved the Helios’ Scepter, and the barren Domain World immediately underwent earth-shattering changes. The seven pieces of the debris of the stars that had integrated into the Domain World displayed their power in different forms, forming solid layers of defense.
However, the arrow shot by the Immortal King’s incarnation was extremely powerful, so much so that it could shatter the sky, shoot down the sun, and crush the earth. It broke through the obstacles without pausing, and shot straight towards Lin Li’s heart.
