Chapter 1141: Paragon Master Flying Snow
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
The 16 protectors formed a combat formation. They were like an entity.
Furthermore, every protector could turn into the core member of the formation, allowing the formation to transform continuously with killing moves sent without stop!
Facing such an enemy, Xue Ying had to face the incoming attacks while striking back! If he sought to take a step back and determine the real from the illusory, he might be forced into a disadvantaged position. Under the chain of killing moves, he might be defeated before he could react!
The Mirage and Illusory Realm descended. It encompassed the 16 protectors at the same time. Strictly speaking, this team of protectors that Xue Ying faced was the weakest precisely because of disturbance from the Mirage and Illusory Realm! They could only exert about 50-60% strength of what the other protectors could.
“Sou sou sou sou sou…”
Within the surrounding mist, amidst many tiny spatial pockets, a white-robed young man appeared in nine of these pockets.
Nine great avatars!
“Chaotic Origin First Strike–Misty Ripple!”
“Hong hong hong hong hong hong hong hong hong!”
Nine palms were sent out at the same time from each spatial pocket, generating a scary maelstrom of miasma. At the center of the maelstrom was a black region of dead space. This maelstrom directly clashed against the chain of strikes from the 16 protectors. During this moment, those protectors sent three consecutive strikes only to be forced backward by the maelstrom.
And the nine great avatars were forced to take a step back within the spatial pockets consequently.
Even though Hunter, Black Sovereign King, and Paragon Master Bewitching Sword were embroiled in a life and death battle, they were also paying close notice to the battles happening at other locations.
“It seems he isn’t disadvantaged in a direct collision?”
They were all shocked.
Because they were clear that the joint attacks by these protectors were completely at a standard equivalent to apex final realm Cosmos Gods!
“It seems Monarch Flying Snow owns a top-graded secret treasure?”
“He could execute such a powerful combat force?”
The nine great avatars completely unleashed the Chaotic Origin First Strike simultaneously! If they worked together without forming an array, their total power would increase several times. Nonetheless, during these several thousand years, Xue Ying had improved the <Scarlet Cloud Combat Technique>. He spent the longest time improving the combined technique so as to perfect the coordination between his nine great avatars, maximizing their utilization of power.
This technique that originally had a new third-level Cosmos God power, became several times stronger when nine great avatars used it at the same time using the combined technique.
“I can’t carry on further. These protectors have supreme defenses too. I have to rely on the Piercing Void to break apart their formation.”
After the nine great avatars sent out a palm, they then punched out a fish.
“Hong hong hong…”
With nine fists punching out, what they executed were the Piercing Void Style of the <New Scarlet Cloud Combat Technique>. Nine vague ripples formed a maelstrom, with each ripple made from numerous cracks. Chaotic Origin Energy poured in from each of the cracks. When the maelstrom crashed into the formation of the 16 protectors, the force actually transmitted into the body of a thin protector. Xue Ying targeted him because his blade techniques were the most savage and fierce out of the protectors.
“I don’t believe that your body is as powerful as your offense.” Xue Ying gritted his teeth.
That thin protector’s body exploded. His armor flew in all directions and died at that instance. Actually, the majority of these protectors had slightly weaker bodies. Otherwise, if they were too strong and all-rounded, the difficulty of the 12th stage would have been unfair!
With the death of a protector, the combat formation fluctuated slightly before stabilizing.
“Change in team formation, continue the battle!”
These protectors became more frenzied. Even though their techniques were sufficiently powerful that they could injure Xue Ying, Paragon Master Pu Su had persisted for ten over moves before being teleported out. Given how powerful Xue Ying’s fleshy body was, he could at least hold on for more than a hundred rounds! Furthermore, he had nine great avatars, making it harder for the protectors to kill him.
And the loss of a protector would indisputably mean a slight drop in the power of the combat formation.
The nine avatars of Xue Ying hid amidst the tiny spatial pockets. They sent out another nine fists together in a combined technique.
New Scarlet Cloud Combat Technique–Piercing Void!
Nine avatars, combined attack!
This technique countered against combat formations. Following as the first protector was killed, in the following rounds, Xue Ying suffered from several strikes before blasting out and killing five protectors consecutively. From that moment on, the protectors could no longer resist against Xue Ying’s strength, allowing him to claim a bright victory amidst those present.
Paragon Master Bewitching Sword was the only one that wasn’t injured.
Previously during the 11th stage, he suffered from light injuries solely because there were too many huge scarlet fishes. Yet now, there were only 16 enemies fighting against him! Furthermore, they relied on a combat formation to engage in the battle. Given how frightening the sword technique Paragon Master Bewitching Sword had, he could easily parry against every strike from the enemies. Without a doubt, he had the strongest close combat capability amongst those present! And that was how he gradually whittled down the protectors in direct combat.
Even though his efficiency of killing the enemies was lower than Xue Ying’s, he remained uninjured.
Even though Paragon Master Bewitching Sword could remain uninjured, one could still not belittle these protectors.
After all, their attacks came continuously without a break! A cultivator who could not resist against it would be doomed immediately. Paragon Master Bewitching Sword had defended himself without letting in a single attack. That was how he could win the battle without being injured. Other than him, the others could not achieve this at all!
Paragon Master Pu Su was the first to be expelled.
And soon, Hunter could no longer hold on any longer. Over time as his body aggregated and dissipated, his injuries worsened until the very final moment.
“Mn?” Hunter noticed the other three beside him.
It was fine for Paragon Master Bewitching Sword to be unparalleled in close combat.
But Black Sovereign King actually erupted with a hidden technique, forming five Shadow Incarnations! His true body could easily appear in the position where his Shadow Incarnations were, allowing him to hold an upper hand in the battle.
‘He has greatly improved. No wonder he chose to enter the Realm Heart God Palace again this time.’ Hunter lightly sighed.
‘There is also that Monarch Flying Snow. With how powerful the combined technique of his nine avatars could exert, he is unquestionably a Paragon Master!’ Hunter sighed again.
An unseen ripple descended and brought Hunter out.
Hunter was expelled out of the Realm Heart God Palace, marking the end of his journey here.
Xue Ying was the first to clear this team of protectors. Paragon Master Bewitching Sword was the second and Black Sovereign King had been the last.
The three of them stood respectively in their own cloud path looking at the others distantly.
“Black Sovereign King, I wouldn’t have thought that you still have your Shadow Incarnation Technique hidden, revealing it only now.” Paragon Master Bewitching Sword commented.
“Even if I hid it deeper, it still couldn’t be compared to Brother Flying Snow! He isn’t weaker than me in direct combat. Furthermore, his domain technique and survivability are beyond mine. Truly admirable.” Black Sovereign King praised.
Wasn’t that the case?
The strongest killing move of Xue Ying had unquestionably reached the Paragon Master combat power. Furthermore, he had also touched the boundary of third level Cosmos Gods in many other aspects including his survivability and domain. He even knew how to cast the Mirage and Illusory Realm technique! Xue Ying was considered extremely all-rounded amidst the ‘Paragon Masters’.
Following that, a ripple engulfed the three of them.
The three of them saw as everything distorted before them. They began looking forward to the next thing.
After all, crossing through the 12th stage would reward them incredibly!
The main doors of the Realm Heart God Palace shut close. And currently outside the main doors.
Quite a few people were gathered here. Even Fire Devil Paragon Master and Great Paragon Lu Tian were still here. As for Great Monarch Bone Clamor and Paragon Master Pu Su, both were here too. The Time Domain of Paragon Master Pu Su was still surrounding him as his body recovered. Nobody dared to act against him since the avatars of several unparalleled existences like Emperor Summer and Limitless City Master were guarding this place.
Because the experts from various locations would be gravely injured and close to death when they were teleported out. Hence, to prevent any assassinations, Emperor Summer and the others naturally left behind avatars to keep a lookout.
“Hua.” Hunter was teleported out too.
“You are out as well?” Paragon Master Pu Su chuckled, “Is Black Sovereign King still inside?”
“What about that Monarch Flying Snow?” Great Monarch Bone Clamor asked the more important question.
“Don’t wait any longer. Black Sovereign King is extremely cunning. He concealed his Shadow Incarnation Technique from all of us. And that Monarch Flying Snow is even more powerful. He doesn’t seem any weaker than me in close combat. Furthermore, he is stronger than me in survivability and domain techniques.” Hunter shook his head, “In this batch who attempted the 18th Stages, that Monarch Flying Snow could possibly be ranked the first in overall combat power.”
“What?” Great Monarch Bone Clamor was stunned.
“So powerful?” Paragon Master Pu Su did not dare believe it. He hurriedly contacted Paragon Master Bewitching Sword.
There were many experts from other ancient nation present too.
“Monarch Flying Snow is a Paragon Master? He seems to be ranked first amongst all of you in strength?”
“Is that true?”
“He could pass the 12th stage. How do you think his strength is? Furthermore, before teleporting out, according to what I saw, he should be the first to wipe out his enemies.” Hunter retorted with a question.
After a moment.
Paragon Master Bewitching Sword and Black Sovereign King who had just crossed the 12th trial began leaking out information as their good friends questioned them. Xue Ying was also questioned by several friends of his. Sky-Rending Great Paragon even congratulated him for crossing the 12th stage. Xue Ying could only admit the fact honestly since such matters could hardly be concealed.
And naturally, everyone knew about how Paragon Master Bewitching Sword, Black Sovereign King, and Monarch Flying Snow had cleared the 12th stage.
And Monarch Flying Snow was publicly acknowledged as a Paragon Master. This was broadcasted and spread across the entire Realm Heart Great Land.
It was naturally fast when news spread between Cosmos Gods in the Realm Heart Great Land. Various superpowers also knew about the emergence of a new Paragon Master.
And this piece of news naturally reached the Southern Cloud Nation.
