Worlds’ Apocalypse Online - Chapter 1684 - Final moments of decision
Chapter 1684: Final moments of decision
[Devout: By wearing this armor, you will automatically gain the effect of Devout]
[Your armor will absorb the power of your enemy in combat to repair any damage done to it]
[While you obtain this Title, you will naturally wield the following rare Title Skill:]
[Saint Sentry is an exclusive proof, it is capable to opening the Phase Realm kept by the armor, Sanctum]
[Description: During the destruction of the world, the remaining spirits had all hidden themselves into the Sanctum for an endlessly long slumber]
[Note: You can awaken those slumbering spirits for them to descend from the Sanctum into the main world, they will aid you to the full extent of their capabilities, turning your defenses as firm as a fortress]
[Note: The best possible defensive armor!]
[You are the world]
Gu Qing Shan quickly read everything, but still didn’t understand it.
——these descriptions are so vague that he had no idea how those spirits would actually help him defend.
However, he understood the [Devout] ability very well.
This armor was capable of repairing itself!
While Gu Qing Shan was silently thinking, some metallic clanging could be heard from inside the armor.
The entire armor scattered into dozens of components that circled around his body before finally donning itself onto him.
Gu Qing Shan raised his hand.
The final component of the armor – the Saint helmet – nimbly landed in his hand, which he put over his head.
This was a suit of pure-white armor with red lining, but as Gu Qing Shan donned it, all the pure-white portions instantly began to shine in a bright yellow light while the red lining exuded a blinding red glow, all of which gave off an inexplicable sensation of solemnity.
Kong kong kong kong kong——-
He had automatically floated into the air while the bright white and red glow exuded from his body to illuminate his surroundings, continuously giving off a loud howling noise.
“Whoa! You look so cool, Gu Qing Shan!”
Laura couldn’t help herself exclaiming.
Gu Qing Shan stayed silent briefly to sense the power of the armor.
His voice was then heard coming from behind the helmet:
“I can sense that this armor has considerable defensive capabilities by itself, it is also capable of summoning the Sanctum, so I would no longer have to worry about defending myself, thank you, Laura”
Laura replied with a cheery tone: “What thanks? When you saved me before, you didn’t hear me thanking you, did you?”
Gu Qing Shan then turned to Liao Xiao Pao and tried asking: “Ironman, I think I understand how to defend already, but what about attacking? Other than summoning spirits to attack for us, how do we strengthen our attacks to the level of spirits?”
Liao Xiao Pao just stared at him with eyes opened wide and blankly muttered: “I only know about defense, I have no idea how to strengthen my attacks to be level of spirits either”
Gu Qing Shan looked at him to see lines of glowing text floating above his head:
[A full set of armor cast from Realm Mineral!]
[Fu— wha— how—- such an impressive set of battle armor, randomly pulled out of nowhere? Who’s going to believe that?]
[You’re definitely messing with me on purpose!]
[…It must be a set of armor that was prepared beforehand, definitely—–]
[Yep, that’s the only explanation for it!]
[The disciple of the strongest individual in the Dusty World, only a suit of armor of that level would be worthy of such status]
[Tsk tsk tsk, seems like I’ll need to latch tightly onto this pair of legs, this way my future would be completely bright]
Gu Qing Shan: “…”
Weren’t you an iron man? How come your true personality is like this?
While thinking this, he realized something strange.
A familiar presence exuded from the saintly heroic spirit girl, which Gu Qing Shan sharply sensed.
Gu Qing Shan tried asking.
The saintly heroic spirit girl’s aura completely changed, no longer exuding a holy glow from her body.
Her gaze now contained nothing but endless vicissitudes as she crossed her arms and spoke in a hoarse voice: 「 Gu Qing Shan, follow me, I have something to say to you 」
The girl then began to head towards the nearby ruins.
It’s the esteemed lady of the Sacrificial Dance!
Gu Qing Shan signaled with his eyes to both Laura and Liao Xiao Pao before following her steps.
The two of them moved to another set of ruins in a relatively secluded location.
Gu Qing Shan put up a sound-proof barrier as well before respectfully saying: “Esteemed lady, why are you here?”
The girl shook her head: 「 It was because I had no other choice that I descended upon this spirit’s body, after all, there wasn’t much time 」
“What happened?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
「 The Space Vortex within this Reality Gate is no longer salvageable, the Apocalyptic Divine Weapon has summoned too many Apocalypse Sequences that swear to destroy this place no matter what 」the girl explained.
Gu Qing Shan remained silent.
Indeed, the Overlooker of Myriad Realms had mentioned this.
——-so this was a definite point among all future possibilities, huh?
“Is there really no way to change this?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
「 There is no way to change this, additionally, the Dusty World has been discovered 」the girl continued.
“Wasn’t the Dusty World hiding under the Time Vortex? How could they find the Dusty World?” Gu Qing Shan asked in surprise.
「 Because during your battle against the Silent Light and End of Time, two Unfathomable Apocalypses, I had personally acted, which gave them the opportunity to detect it——- the Apocalypses had already begun to enter the River of Time, so it only be a matter of time before they discovered this stagnant branch of the river 」the girl answered.
“Does the Dusty World not provide any support?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
The girl answered: 「 I AM the support from the Dusty World for this Space Vortex, but I’ve judged that this place is about to be completely destroyed, and even if the Dusty World had sent in other people, they wouldn’t be able to stop this future from occurring 」
“Not even you would be able to stop the Apocalypse with your power?” Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but ask.
The girl chuckled bitterly, then answered: 「 Although we are powerful, the Apocalypses are endless in number. They’ve sworn to take the ultimate weapon of living beings during this campaign as well as exploring the secret within this Reality Gate 」
The ultimate weapon of living beings—– the Samsara.
Gu Qing Shan knew it perfectly well and fully understood that the situation had truly become that severe.
Not even the esteemed lady of the Sacrificial Dance’s power would be able to fend off the Apocalypse Sequences.
This fact left him feeling a sense of helplessness.
The girl continued: 「 You now have two choices. The first is to become a new member of the Dusty World and leave this Space Vortex together with the Dusty World; the second is to remain and flee this place by your own means 」
“What about Laura?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
「 She had always been part of the Dusty World. Here, she would receive nothing short of the fastest speed of advancement and growth 」the girl replied.
“…She can stay here, but I cannot” Gu Qing Shan said.
「 For what reason? 」the girl asked.
“I know a method to escape, and I want to save others as I do so” Gu Qing Shan replied.
「 The chances of that succeeding isn’t very high. We’ve discovered several different Gates within this Space Vortex, but all of them had turned out to be dead ends. The key in your hand might also be one such option, do you really want to bet on it with your life? 」the girl asked.
“I want to gamble on it this once”
「 What if you lose? 」
“Being willing to gamble means being willing to lose, this had always been the implicit rules”
The girl grinned, then swiftly changed the subject: 「 You’ve stayed at the Dusty World for a bit already, what do you think about it? 」
Gu Qing Shan replied: “A place like the Dusty World should have extremely powerful spirits as well as world systems with their own natural order, but ever since I arrived, all the world systems I’ve ran into have had one issue or another—–”
The girl affirmed: 「 Indeed, this experience of yours was a result of my secret meddling 」
“Thank you, esteemed lady” Gu Qing Shan clasped his fist and thanked her.
「 What are you thanking me for? 」the girl asked.
“If this hadn’t been the case, I would most likely not have a chance to mature. I wouldn’t have obtained the manifestation of those powerful world systems’ world essence either——- you had actually been helping me complete the Key” Gu Qing Shan answered.
The girl gave him an approving look and nodded: 「 Indeed, you are very smart. The Gloomy City, the Clock Tower, as well as this ruined world were all worlds at the outermost border of the Dusty World, which was also the most greatly weakened among them all. You would only be able to obtain the manifestation of the world’s essence in places like these 」
「 Gu Qing Shan, the Dusty World is about to leave, so I will only be able to help you one last time now 」
「 ——the next world system will be both powerful and wicked, from which you would be able to obtain many world’s essence manifestations, but the challenges you face would also be unlike anything you’ve seen before. You will die if you become just a bit careless 」
「 Due to the Dusty World’s ironclad rules, I will not be able to interfere with everything in that world, you can only rely on yourself 」
「 If you die, you will really have died 」
「 ——–seize your time, not only will you have to survive, but you will also have to think of a way to take those manifestations for yourself 」
「 Keep this in mind, the Apocalypses are about to arrive, and the Dusty World will depart very soon 」
「 You must cast a Traveler’s Key as soon as you can! 」
After she said these worlds, the girl nodded towards him before standing completely still.
After a few moments, her gaze turned a bit before gradually returning to clarity.
『 That personage… just now… was truly unimaginably powerful 』
The saintly heroic spirit girl mumbled to herself in a tone filled with boundless respect and shock.
Gu Qing Shan stood next to her.
He had fallen completely into thought and didn’t respond to her.
