Chapter 1273: Clash of Demon-Level Geniuses
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
In the battlefield, chaotic battles were still ongoing everywhere in the Burial Gorge.
As time flowed by, more and more experts were eliminated or died. Old Chai and Duan Qianshan were still fighting intensely, while the other protectors of Qin Wentian fought against the enemies from the Skymist Alliance.
Naturally, the battle everyone paid the most attention to, was none other than the battle between Qin Wentian and Huang Shatian.
These two fought in a separate battlefield where there were no others in it. They didn’t use any divine weapons, each having their own pride. This battle, had to be won with their individual strength.
Their bodies flowed with fearsome law energies, nobody could break past the domain of the other to kill their enemy. However, Huang Shatian seemed to be more carefree. The nine emperor silhouettes stood with arrogance and under their combined attacks, Qin Wentian’s defenses would be broken through sooner or later.
“If you don’t use that ultimate technique, you soon won’t have a chance to do so.” Huang Shatian was now not too far away from Qin Wentian. He smashed apart a palm imprint as he coldly spoke.
“I wish to see the true depths of your strength.” Qin Wentian calmly replied, he continued to unleash violent attacks, as a towering devil light radiated from him, forming layers of devil armor. The devil might in his surroundings churned wildly, even his eyes looked like that of the devil, becoming extremely bloodthirsty, on the verge of insanity as he entered an absolute berserk state.
“You are like a human-shaped monster.” Huang Shatian’s gaze turn cold. He could let it slide when Qin Wentian exuded that overwhelming demonic qi. But now, he seemed to have completely devilized himself, as his aura climbed upwards unceasingly.
“Immortal Devil Transformation – Devilization. He actually used that.” The countenance of the Blackstone Devil King changed. He knew how terrifying Devilization was. Qin Wentian was staking everything he had on this battle.
The devilized Qin Wentian let out a thunderous roar as he punched out with both fists, manifesting baleful devil beasts that wanted to tear the sky apart.
Huang Shatian folded incantation gestures. The light screen behind him began to materialize even more divine weapons, pouring their energy into him. The Huang Shatian now was like the strongest weapon in human-form. With a slash of his hand, an emperor sword appeared, slashing through the sky, slaying the greater demons. Stabbing out with his finger, spears manifested, penetrating through everything.
“In order to deal with a human-form monster like you, how can I not have some preparations? I said it before, this time around, I wouldn’t fight you to waste time if I didn’t have absolute confidence.” A supreme emperor might emitted from Huang Shatian. Right now, a shadow of a supreme human emperor appeared and was gradually merging with him as one.
At this moment, he was an ancient human emperor, having access to innate techniques and arts so powerful that he could split the heavens and earth apart.
“They can actually still grow stronger?” The spectators felt their hearts trembling. The Qin Wentian and Huang Shatian earlier were already terrifying enough but that was not their limits yet. An even stronger combat prowess could be sensed from both of them.
Qin Wentian was completely in devil form, while Huang Shatian was like a human emperor of the ancient times. Who were they? Why were their innate techniques so unbelievably powerful? They seemed to have no end of methods.
Such characters, maybe even emperor-ranked powers wouldn’t be able to nurture someone like them.
“There’s a high possibility that they came from the immortal realms.” Some intelligent devil cultivators speculated. There were many in the battlefield fighting using immortal energy. Although there were also immortal cultivation arts on the Myriad Devil Islands, they were extremely limited in comparison to devil cultivation arts. Also, given how strong Qin Wentian and Huang Shatian was, and the fact that even their protectors were so powerful, this guess was only logical.
If they came from the immortal realms, they definitely wouldn’t be from ordinary powers and would have extraordinary backgrounds.
Within the battlefield, Qin Wentian and Huang Shatian’s battle shocked everyone. Even for those who were currently fighting, all of them stopped to observe this clash of the strongest.
They felt their hearts shaking as they spectated. It was simply too terrifying, Qin Wentian was a human-shaped battle beast, while Huang Shatian was a human-shaped war weapon. Every collision between them had the power to break the skies.
The devil-form Qin Wentian stepped out. A simple punch of his had the power to destroy a world. Dragons of darkness manifested, intent on devouring everything in existence.
Huang Shatian responded with a finger strike, shattering everything that came in contact with it.
“BOOM!” Qin Wentian stepped on the ground, blasting out with his palms. Huang Shatian’s hands folded human emperor seals and with a wave of his hand, he seemed to open up a brand new world, causing the nearby space to completely collapse. The light-screen shattered as a chaotic current ravaged the surroundings.
“Where’s your strongest attack?” Huang Shatian roared. Everything around him disintegrated, Huang Shatian was much stronger compared to back then when they were in the sacred academy.
In the past, he walked towards Qin Wentian step by step before he unleashed his ultimate killing technique. But now, he strode forth with even more confidence and arrogance.
“RUMBLE!” Qin Wentian’s immortal-foundation only had a type of light left. Or more accurately, it was the absence of light – complete and total darkness. The black-colored devilish might enveloped this entire space, robbing it of its light. Huang Shatian stared at the gigantic form of Qin Wentian as he coldly spoke, “Are you even in control of yourself? Are you sure you can restrict me in that form?”
As he spoke, he lifted his palms and slashed apart the darkness. Before Huang Shatian, a supreme human emperor sword appeared, summoned from the void.
This sword itself was like the void, all attacks aimed at it would disappear into nothingness. There was nothing which could come into contact with the sword.
Huang Shatian’s expression was incomparably solemn. Boundless energy was concentrated within his sword. He stared at Qin Wentian as his eyes gleamed with sharpness, “If you still don’t unleash your strongest attack, you won’t have any chance left.”
As the sound of his voice faded, his sword radiated millions of beams of light, so blinding that many people couldn’t look straight at it. There were even some with weaker cultivations who bled from their eyes. It was like just this sword intent alone, was sufficient to injure devil-foundation experts. How terrifying was this?
Huang Shatian’s strength, his comprehension of laws, his trace of immortal-king might, were all infused into the ancient emperor sword. This wasn’t a divine weapon, but was something materialized purely from his energy. It was something more frightening compared to divine weapons.
“How strong.” The devil cultivators in their area all retreated with explosive speed. They could sense that if the aftershock of the battle touched them, they might die here.
Outside the platform, many of the spectators stood up as their hearts pounded rapidly while they stared at the scene. The battle between these two grew more and more intense to the point where it would frighten gods and startle the universe. It was simply too terrifying.
“As the sword lands, the battle would be concluded.” Old Xia Devil King sipped his wine as he calmly spoke.
“If the sword lands, would that young man still be able to survive?” There were some who felt regret for Qin Wentian. Although they didn’t experience for themselves the might of this sword, these devil kings could tell its power just from seeing it from afar.
“The battle has yet to end, who knows if Qin Wentian would have a trump card.” The Blackstone Devil King had a grim expression on his face. Although he said it this way, his heart was filled with worry.
Xin Yu felt as though she was the one in the battlefield. She was incomparably nervous as she stared at that figure while she prayed in her heart, “Sir Qin…”
She has never imagined that a person whom she just met with once, would give her such a deep impression.
In the battlefield, Qin Wentian faced the sword directly. His devilized immortal-foundation emitted darkness. The light within the darkness was like the starry skies at night, cascading its faint light to the ground. His eyes were ice-cold, staring at the sword of Huang Shatian.
“What is that?” At this instant, the spectators could see a dark shadow leaving Qin Wentian’s body, fading to the back, completely merging together with the darkness.
The devil emperor’s eyes narrowed, staring at the scene.
Next, Huang Shatian’s sword slashed down. The ancient human emperor sword that could annihilate everything, and could even split apart the sky and earth.
As the sword descended, from top to bottom, a large crack appeared in the air. Qin Wentian’s body was as though it was split in twain by the force of that attack.
Huang Shatian stood with his sword in his hand, staring at the figure that was slashed apart by him. His eyes were calm yet he sighed softly in his heart. Although Qin Wentian was someone he had to kill, after killing him, Huang Shatian actually felt slightly regretful.
It was extremely rare to come across a worthy opponent like Qin Wentian. If they weren’t in conflict because of what happened in the sacred academy, maybe he wouldn’t rise in strength so quickly. A strong opponent would give you pressure and motivation. That, coupled with a strong will, would enable one to break their limits as they grew in strength quicker.
After this battle, where else would he still be able to find such a strong opponent?
When all the dust settled, Huang Shatian suddenly frowned. Abruptly, an extreme sharpness gleamed within his eyes. He lifted his head and peered into the darkness. Within that boundless darkness, an immensely violent and powerful demonic might could be felt boring down from the sky. It was that ultimate fusion technique again, that technique which could devour everything. The huge vortex of darkness engulfed this entire space, even for Huang Shatian’s spatial law energy, it was absorbed as well.
“As expected, I still underestimated you.” A voice rang out in Huang Shatian’s mind. This strike was similar to the one which heavily injured him back then in the sacred academy. Both of them came a full cycle as the same scene which occurred in the past, happened now again.
In addition, this time around, Qin Wentian actually managed to evade his attack. This was simply a critical mistake.
Clearly, the Qin Wentian now wasn’t the Qin Wentian of the past.
However he, Huang Shatian, similarly wasn’t the Huang Shatian of the past as well. It was impossible for that surge of overwhelming power of that fusion technique to injure him, despite him missing his attack.
He didn’t think about how Qin Wentian had managed to evade him. Failure was failure, he would think about it only after this battle has concluded!
