Chapter 837–Tower of the Abyss Takes Shape

Star Lake City,Airport:

"Uncle Xiao,do you think Big Sis Frost stands a chance?"Twilight Leaf asked worriedly as she looked at Zero Wing Tower through the window of the interstellar spaceship."Although Black Flame has signed a God’s Domain Contract agreeing to help Big Sis Frost,?that?person has Ember Dragon’s full support.The family is also taking a neutral stance on the matter.On top of that,Big Sis Frost won’t receive the old commander’s guidance now that she has refused to return with us.At this rate,I’m worried Big Sis Frost won’t be a match for that person in the family’s Battle of the Chosen Ones…"

Red Frost was once considered a peerless genius that appeared only once in centuries by the family.By the tender age of 15,she had reached the Unthinking Realm and developed her Concentration to the Tier 6 Limit standard.Unfortunately,while exploring a ruin in the Twelve Sanctuaries,an encounter with Ember Dragon robbed her of her coveted Legacy and caused her to be cursed by one of the Twenty-Two Taboos.

The Greater God’s Domain’s Twenty-Two Taboos were dreaded by even Ancient Gods.The curse of these existences was so powerful that Holy Dragon Spear could do nothing about it.The curse also grew stronger over time,weakening Red Frost continuously and forcing her to leave Holy Hymn City and the Holy Dragon Spear adventurer team.

Despite later achievements in the Starlight Realm,Red Frost’s situation did not improve.Although she returned to the Twelve Sanctuaries to try to lift her curse and get revenge at one point,her efforts proved futile,and she had no choice but to spend the rest of her days retired in the Starlight Realm.

Originally,Red Frost should have regained the family’s support now that she had recovered partly from her curse and reclaimed much of her strength.However,that did not happen.This was because a new prodigy had appeared in the family,and she needed to compete and win against this"monster"before the family would throw its support behind her.


Twilight Leaf was currently considered the number-two genius among the family’s younger generation.However,even she could only react in fear at the thought of facing?that?monster.In her opinion,the chances of Red Frost,who was no longer at her peak,defeating that monster were slim.

"Red Frost doesn’t stand a chance in the Battle of the Chosen Ones.?That?person’s combat standard can already rival the current Divine Glory List’s top 10.It is also why Ember Dragon is supporting her in the first place,"Xiao Yilong said,shaking his head."Red Frost’s only hope now is the breakthrough opportunity that Black Flame mentioned.If Black Flame can let the fifth-floor Elders and Grand Elders reach that standard,winning them to our side will be easy."

"Reach that standard?"Various thoughts filled Twilight Leaf’s mind when she heard Xiao Yilong’s words.

The sixth-floor standard!????????????.???

Also known as the Mortal God standard!

No one in the human race’s Greater God’s Domain had ever reached this standard thus far,and it was only theorized to exist because of the World Tower.


When Shi Feng logged back into God’s Domain,he promptly activated World-Breaking Teleportation and made his way to a secluded area in the Void Sea near the Miniature Ancient World.Then,he erected an Isolation Barrier and waited.

Roughly 14 hours later,a peerless beauty with long,flowing hair appeared in the area.The woman was clad in white holy armor and armed with a crimson spear.When Shi Feng saw this woman’s face,he exited the Isolation Barrier to greet her.

The peerless beauty in question was Red Frost,who had been operating in the Starlight Realm for many years.magic

Currently,although Red Frost was still cursed,her level had reached 223.She was also equipped with a Legendary Equipment Set,and the crimson spear she wielded was of extraordinary quality.Although the spear was not at the standard of Divine Artifacts,it radiated Divine Might that rivaled that of Divine Artifacts.In terms of overall strength,Red Frost could challenge the current Divine Glory List’s top 50 and possibly emerge victorious.

"Sorry for the long wait,Guild Leader Black Flame,"Red Frost apologized.She also couldn’t help but feel a little surprised when she saw Shi Feng’s in-game character.


When Red Frost first met Shi Feng in the real world,Shi Feng was only a newcomer trying to join Star Lake City’s City Legion.He wasn’t even at the peak of Tier 4 back then,let alone Tier 6.

Yet,in only a few months,Shi Feng had already become an expert whom she had to look up to.

"Not at all.The average Tier 6 player would need over 20 hours to come here from the Starlight Realm’s central region.You have already exceeded my expectations by arriving in less than 14 hours,"Shi Feng said as he looked at Red Frost,who looked exactly like her real-world self.Then,he activated World-Breaking Teleportation and continued,"Let’s continue our conversation in the Eternal Realm."After Xiao Yilong and Twilight Leaf left,Shi Feng had instructed Red Frost to meet him outside the Miniature Ancient World.This was so that he could improve Red Frost’s strength.

The reason Holy Dragon Spear could become one of the Greater God’s Domain’s Eight Legendary Adventurer Teams was that most,if not all,of its members possessed astonishing combat power.Although it wasn’t stated in Holy Dragon Spear’s rules,those who knew the adventurer team would know that only its strongest member could become its decision maker,also known as the Great Commander.

Although Red Frost had already recovered a considerable portion of her strength thanks to the Mana Purification Technique,she was still somewhat lacking compared to Holy Dragon Spear’s current Great Commander.Thus,it was of utmost importance that she improved her strength.Otherwise,even if she captured a Void Fortress and became Holy Dragon Spear’s next Great Commander,many in the adventurer team would be reluctant to follow her orders.

With Zero Wing’s current resources,it wouldn’t be possible to improve Red Frost’s equipment standard within the foreseeable future.However,it should be possible for Red Frost to improve her combat standard within a short time.After all,according to Xiao Yilong and Twilight Leaf,Red Frost was a monstrous prodigy who had reached the Unthinking Realm and honed her Concentration to the Tier 6 Limit standard by the age of 15.

While Red Frost might have suffered from weakening mana throughout these years,she had not stopped refining her combat standard and Concentration.By now,she had already developed them to their current limits,and all she needed was the right opportunity to transcend these limits.

Eternal Realm,Shadowring Town:

Presently,a seven-story tower had become the focal point of the town’s players.This was because the tower’s size surpassed even the Town Lord’s Mansion.Nobody had ever seen or heard of such a large construction before.Additionally,upon its completion,the seven-story tower caused the density of the energies in Shadowring Town to more than double.This effect was superior to that of many Special Constructions,which prompted many to wonder about the tower’s function.

"Look!It’s Black Flame!"

"Is he going to lift that tower’s barrier?"

When the players on the streets saw Shi Feng appear before the seven-story tower,they quickly gathered around him,hoping to learn the tower’s purpose.

Chapter 838–Sixth-Floor Standard Opponent

"This…Is this an Epic Construction?"With her face hidden under a Black Cloak,Red Frost curiously scrutinized the seven-story tower before her.The longer she inspected it,the more shocked she felt.

As the descendant of an ancient family based in the Twelve Sanctuaries,Red Frost understood more about God’s Domain than most apex power executives.While most players and even apex powers thought that Special was the highest rank for constructions in God’s Domain,she knew it wasn’t actually the limit.

Epic Constructions!

Normally,Special Constructions could affect one type of energy at most,and it typically corresponded to the race they belonged to.In the case of the human race’s Special Constructions,they could only manipulate Mana;they could not manipulate other types of energy,such as Holy Power.

However,it was a different story for Epic Constructions.Epic Constructions could manipulate all types of energy rather than just one.

From what Red Frost could sense,the seven-story tower before her was attracting Mana,Holy Power,and even Eternal Energy for its own use.This led her to suspect the tower might be one of the Epic Constructions of legends.

"No,it’s not an Epic Construction,"Shi Feng said,shaking his head.Then,while lifting the barrier on the Tower of the Abyss,he added,"It’s an Advanced Epic Construction!"

"Advanced Epic?!"Red Frost gaped in shock."How can this be?!Advanced Epic Constructions should have disappeared in the Mythical Era!"

Studying the history of the Greater God’s Domain was one of Red Frost’s hobbies.Thus,she knew that the human race’s Greater God’s Domain had experienced at least two major setbacks in technological development across history.The first happened before the Mythical Era,and the second happened during the Mythical Era.Because of these two setbacks,the human race’s development slowed down massively.

Meanwhile,Advanced Epic Constructions were rarely seen,even during the Mythical Era.It was rumored they were passed down from a prior era and possessed abilities that were borderline miracles.If an Advanced Epic Construction were to appear in the modern era,it would definitely send the entire Greater God’s Domain into turmoil.

"Unfortunately,Zero Wing lacks the technical abilities and materials to recreate it perfectly,"Shi Feng said,putting a damper on Red Frost’s excitement."It is only an Epic Construction right now and cannot accomplish its most vital function."

"What a pity."Red Frost sighed in disappointment as she looked at the Tower of the Abyss.

Advanced Epic Constructions were highly specialized.If an Advanced Epic Construction couldn’t accomplish its most vital function,its value would plummet.Even if the system considered it an Epic Construction,its usefulness might be inferior to Special Constructions.

"It is indeed a pity."Shi Feng chuckled when he saw Red Frost’s hopes vanishing."But the Tower of the Abyss is still an unimaginable opportunity for current players,so don’t feel down."

"Unimaginable opportunity?Could it be the breakthrough opportunity you spoke of,Guild Leader Black Flame?"Red Frost asked.

By now,Red Frost no longer doubted Shi Feng’s claims about allowing Holy Dragon Spear’s Elders and Grand Elders to achieve a breakthrough.After all,quite a few Special Constructions could already give fifth-floor experts a significant harvest,so it wasn’t far-fetched for an Epic Construction to have similar or better capabilities.

However,she personally couldn’t bring herself to be interested in this so-called"breakthrough opportunity."As someone who had already reached the limits of the fifth-floor standard,even an Epic Construction was unlikely to be of any help to her.Unless,of course,this Epic Construction could help her mana recover completely,but that obviously wasn’t possible.

Each of the Twenty-Two Taboos could match Primordial Gods.Not even the power of Divine Artifacts could do anything about the curse of these existences,let alone an Epic Construction.

"That’s right."When Shi Feng saw the barrier covering the Tower of the Abyss disappearing,he smiled and said,"You must have entered the World Tower before,right?In that case,you should know that apart from testing players,the World Tower does nothing else.It neither provides guidance nor anything for players to learn from."

"Yes,that is true.Upon reaching the fifth floor,I only had a bunch of walls to attack.If I could break them,I could proceed.If I couldn’t break them,I could only stay where I was,"Red Frost said,nodding.When recalling the World Tower’s fifth-floor test,she couldn’t help but feel exasperated.

The World Tower’s fifth-floor test was clearly a test of players’destructive power.More specifically,it tested players on whether their destructive power had exceeded a certain threshold.However,even when she executed Advanced Gold Combat Techniques and Taboo-ranked Mana Techniques,she could not break the final wall on the fifth floor.

If not for the World Tower limiting players’Basic Attributes,weapons,and equipment,she would have thought that Divine Artifacts were required to conquer the fifth-floor test.

Of course,some experts also believed Peak Gold Combat Techniques were required to break the final wall.However,Red Frost knew not even Peak Gold Combat Techniques would work.This was because Holy Dragon Spear’s Great Commander had already tried it—to no avail…

"Then,what if I tell you the Tower of the Abyss functions similarly to the World Tower,but unlike the World Tower,the Tower of the Abyss requires players to defeat one opponent on each floor to progress?"Shi Feng whispered to Red Frost.

"It functions similarly to the World Tower and provides opponents to fight against?"Red Frost nearly grabbed Shi Feng out of excitement when she heard his words.


For experts like herself,opponents of a similar caliber were something they could only dream of having.Some of them didn’t even dare to dream about it.

The higher a player climbed the combat standard pyramid,the fewer peers they would have.After players reached the standard where they could execute an Advanced Gold Combat Technique with their every move,it would become virtually impossible for them to find a sparring partner.This was because every player of this caliber was either the leader of a major power or the core executive of an apex power.With the importance of these players’roles,they’d be committing suicide if they exposed their strength and trump cards to others.Thus,unless absolutely necessary,they always avoided fighting other players,especially in one-on-one scenarios.

If the Tower of the Abyss could truly match players with opponents of roughly equal or possibly even greater standards,it would be a literal heaven for experts!

"You don’t need to doubt my words.I can also tell you that the opponents you face on each floor are not fixed.Instead,your opponents will come from a pool of thousands upon thousands of players,"Shi Feng added when he saw the trace of zeal in Red Frost’s eyes."Moreover,the Tower of the Abyss not only has opponents at the fifth-floor standard but also the sixth-floor standard!"

"The sixth-floor standard?!How is that possible?!"Red Frost was shocked.Fortunately,she still had the presence of mind to keep her voice down when she exclaimed."The World Tower ends on the sixth floor.How can there be opponents at the sixth-floor standard?"

The Mortal God standard!

This was a standard that no player of the human race or the Holy Race could imagine reaching,let alone having opponents of this standard to fight against.Countless experts would get on their knees just to receive some guidance from a Mortal God.

Not even in her dreams would she dare to think of fighting against Mortal Gods as much as she wanted!
