Chapter 676: Oil Lamp
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
However, although Lin Li's behavior was a little suspicious, everyone tacitly decided not to ask for the reason for his late arrival, because they all knew that there was nothing left in the laboratory. Both Elder Randy and Cheyenne felt that they had made the biggest gains on the fifth floor, especially when compared with Lin Li's alchemy puppets. Hence, no one wanted to talk about the fifth floor again lest they caused the young mage Lin Li to be displeased.
“Hehe, we had no choice but to wait. Mage Felic, you'll understand when you walk over.” Elder Randy and Cheyenne greeted Lin Li with a wry smile, and tactfully made way for Lin Li to stand in the middle. They had already unknowingly put Lin Li above them during the cooperation.
Lin Li looked at the two of them peculiarly without saying much. He then walked towards the s.p.a.ce between the two of them and looked through the door, only to get a great shock. He finally knew why they looked so glum and sullen.
There was a long corridor after the gate, and there didn't seem to be anything special about it. On the surface, it didn't look any different from the one on the first floor. The ground was also covered with precious magical gemstones, and there were cyan lamps on the walls of both sides.
However, as a Legendary powerhouse who was highly sensitive to energy fluctuations, Lin Li could clearly feel that the plain-looking corridor was full of lethal dangers. Besides, the menace in the corridor did not come from the Alchemy Array or any magic gears. Instead, it came from pure nomological power.
“This is really absurd!” Lin Li only scanned a bit of the surroundings, but the shock that the corridor brought him was unimaginable, for the Laws of the s.p.a.ce in the long corridor were extremely chaotic and way out of the ordinary. It was, in fact, very outrageous.
If s.p.a.ce was described as a sheet of white paper, the s.p.a.ce in the corridor would be a sheet of white paper that had been torn into pieces and forcibly pieced back together. From afar, there seemed to be nothing too different about it. However, when one took a closer look, he would be able to see the dense cracks on it. The shredded pieces of paper definitely wouldn't be a threat, but the broken pieces of s.p.a.ce that had been forcibly been put together again were absolutely fatal. One definitely would not be affected when standing outside the s.p.a.ce, but once they stepped into it, they would definitely be ripped into shreds by the countless cracks in s.p.a.ce, regardless of how powerful they might be.
Without a doubt, the Immortal King, who was known to be as powerful as G.o.ds, was the only one who could create such an insanely powerful s.p.a.ce. For any intruder, this trap would be almost impossible to resolve. It was clearly telling every intruder that there was a fine line between life and death.
Lin Li was horrified because of that. The power in the cracked s.p.a.ce was indeed terrifying, but it would at most cause him to be a little taken aback. Back in Tutankhamun's cabin, using the s.p.a.cetime Beacon Spell, Lin Li had once witnessed the ma.s.sive power displayed by Geresco that was enough to tear the s.p.a.ce apart.
However, the corridor that he and the rest were facing now did not pose just the problem of a cracked s.p.a.ce. The dense and menacing cracks were absolutely hair-raising and equivalent to countless areas of cracked s.p.a.ce being forged together again. It almost had nothing to do with technique, but was a pure display of power. The Immortal King had created an almost-invincible trap that could not be overridden. Such power was really equivalent to that of the G.o.ds in legends.
What was even more incredible was the fact that any cracks in s.p.a.ce would gradually recover under the s.p.a.ce Laws in the world until they began to disappear. Otherwise, the countless wars that had been happening since the prehistoric times which were powerful enough to tear s.p.a.ce apart would have already caused the world to collapse and get destroyed completely long ago.
However, the s.p.a.ce cracks in the corridor did not at all recover even after a long period of time. It wouldn't be an overstatement to say that this force had violated the laws of the world.
Lin Li shook his head slightly. If it were an Alchemy Array, a magic gear, or even a master-level magic trap, Lin Li could still use his own knowledge to find a way to solve it. However, the s.p.a.ce trap in front of him was created by the Immortal King using his purest and unparalleled power. There was no way to resolve it at all.
Lin Li could only sigh helplessly. Sometimes, knowledge might be useless. Although he had a considerable amount of knowledge in Alchemy and magic gears, it seemed that he could not put it to use now that he was faced with the trap created with formidable power.

Having noticed Lin Li's expression, Elder Randy and Cheyenne could not help but appear disappointed. Although they also knew that it would be impossible for anyone to get rid of the s.p.a.ce trap in the corridor, they still had a tiny bit of hope in Lin Li, hoping that he could create some miracle again.
“Yeah, it's just a single expedition, and we've already gained enough. We really shouldn't be greedy and hope for more.” Cheyenne sighed, clearly feeling indignant, but there was nothing he could do now that he was faced with the s.p.a.ce trap that could not be solved at all.
However, no one took the initiative to leave, because they were all filled with a dash of hope, and were thinking about how great things would be if they could find a way to pa.s.s through. Nonetheless, they knew that the chances were very slim.
“Did you guys discover that that magical oil lamp seems different from the rest?” After standing in front of the door for a long time, Cheyenne suddenly pointed at the corridor and questioned them while feeling uncertain.
However, Cheyenne's discovery did not pique the interest of the rest. In fact, every lamp in the corridor had a different style and design. Hence, the difference did not seem to be of any significance.
“Didn't you guys sense that the magical wave of that oil lamp is different from those of the surrounding lamps?” Cheyenne seemed to have really felt something, and there was a tinge of excitement in his voice. If that oil lamp was really special, it could very likely be related to the trap. The High Elves wouldn't have used other materials just because they lacked one.
“You mean the second lamp from the right?” Elder Randy glanced apprehensively in the direction that Cheyenne was looking at, and closed his eyes to carefully feel the aura of the oil lamp under the influence of the countless cracks in s.p.a.ce. He stopped feeling doubtful, and gradually began to feel a sense of joy and surprise.
It was indeed different! When Cheyenne mentioned it for the first time, Lin Li focused his attention on the oil lamp and discovered that the burning flame of the oil lamp was slightly different, though it was very similar to cyan.
The shape of the oil lamp did not seem to stand out from the surrounding ones. After all, all the oil lamps were different. However, Lin Li discovered that the oil lamp actually had a lot of similarities in structure with the Summoning Lamp that he had.
