Chapter 433: The Last One
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
“Our pitiful combat power leaves us with no hope to continue participating in the Myriad Flower Feast. Still, it’s worth it, even if just to broaden our horizons.” Two Deities were chatting among themselves as they glanced at their surroundings. There were various Starfield Patrol Masters parading their grand auras, all of them at the World Deity level.
“There are nearly two thousand World Deities here, and even a grade two legion, the Calm Sea Legion, is here.” One of the Deities, tall and thin in figure, raised his head to look toward the high platform. The pressure coming from that direction, even from someone like King Rong Hai who was seated at the boundary, could send any Deity experts into a shudder. There was no need to even mention the ancient and powerful Calm Sea Prefecture Master and Monarch Mo Xue, who were as profound as the world itself; they were like the origin and end of all, like the core of every Law of the World.
Their invisible pressure was such that it spawned a reverence at the most fundamental level of life.
“It’s true. Broadening our horizons is a welcome thing.”
“Except for events like these, we would never get the chance to witness an existence at the level of the Calm Sea Prefecture Master…” Despite feeling rather jittery in their reverence, the Deities were still stealing glances upward. Their current experiences would be topics for discussion for a long time to come.
In the end, there could only be a total of one hundred Deities to represent the Calm Sea Prefecture at the Bloodshed God Palace.
Seventh Mei Yu descended next to the Mountain Wu Star Field patrol legion, where she turned to look around her. Is Brother Dong Bo’s battle still ongoing?”
Indeed, Xue Ying was still in the middle of fighting.
His current situation was rather difficult, as the effect of his Chaotic Suppression had already long since lost its effectiveness. At the moment, he was relying on his Mirage body to hold on by the skin of his teeth, while using his Chaotic Suppression time after time! He was doing his utmost to hold on for a bit more time, but with the black-robed men surrounding him, the pressure he was facing was also much greater now.
Good, very good! The Chaotic Suppression has, indeed, too many weaknesses. Xue Ying was focused most on this move while under the absolute pressure. He was ecstatic to be in this situation, since one of his goals for participating in the Myriad Flower Feat had always been to challenge and refine himself, so as to quickly grasp hold of his next grade one Deity Heart, the Chaotic Deity Heart. At that point, he would be a stage two World Deity.
It seems I’ve truly reached a limit. These black-robed men are too strong. As he thought that, the spear techniques he was unleashing transformed.
The originally tyrannical Chaotic Suppression followed an arc through space, accompanied by a terrifying penetrative force. The space surroundings the spear condensed into a star which gradually expanded before rapidly caving in and exploding. The spear’s tip pierced rapidly through the chest of a black-robed man before him, sending him crumbling and dissipating.
Secret skill—Star Meteor Annihilation!
In terms of pure strength, the Chaotic Suppression took the prize, but the outcome of a battle did not depend on solely strength. By comparison, Xue Ying’s strongest absolute move, the Star Meteor Annihilation, was a fused secret skill. In the end, Xue Ying had a large number of different skills to choose from.
Shua shua shua!
For a moment, countless illusory spear strikes could be seen arcing through the sky, each of them followed by an illusory meteor. This sort of attack causing the surrounding eight black-robed men to immediately retreat.
Secret skill—Star Aggregation!
At that moment, Xue Ying’s many different secret skills were finally put on full display. Now that they were being used in tandem, the black-robed men had a hard time trying to surround him and were instead being killed one by one! Their defenses and physical bodies were strong and could normally withstand many attacks, but very few of them could resist the piercing power of the Star Meteor Annihilation!
“Hahaha!” Previously keeping a low profile and merely whimpering and eating by himself, the White Sand City Lord finally stood up and burst into laughter. “Did I not say that this Brother Dong Bo of mine is the strongest? Just look at him, hehe, that combat power, that killing speed…it seems that you guys rejoiced a bit too early.”
“So many secret skills?”
“Extreme Piercing? Mirage? Star? Space? This brat has grasped hold of four different grade two Deity Hearts? On top of that, he even has command over so many secret skills?”
“There’s that Mirage Deity Heart of his. It lets him condense that Mirage body, which essentially means that there are two of him participating in the battle.”
Be it Marshal Qin, the Venomous Ying World Deity, the Ink Cloud City Lord, King Rong Hai, or the emissary from the Bloodshed God Palace, none of them could hide their shock.
This was because Xue Ying had just been using that overwhelming and direct move until that point! Even though he would occasionally display his Extreme Piercing, the only secret skill he displayed was of one type, his Chaotic Suppression. This spawned among them the misconception that Xue Ying could only use a single secret skill.
Kill, kill, kill!
A single use of Star Meteor Annihilation was much more effective than Chaotic Suppression! There was no need to even mention what happened with so many secret skills complementing each other. In a moment, the black-robed men were being killed one by one, and it didn’t take long until his result surpassed Zang Xiao’s.
“He is indeed slightly stronger than Zang Xiao, but a gap still exists between him and Her Highness, Seventh Mei Yu,” Marshal Qin lightly said.
“Take another look.” The Ink Cloud City Lord frowned.
Of the eight people present, a total of four had betted on Zang Xiao, including the Calm Sea Prefecture Master.
Upon placing their bets, they had immediately eliminated Xue Ying from their calculations and then also removed Seventh Mei Yu. After all, while they understood that she was groomed by Monarch Mo Xue, they felt that her personal comprehension ability wasn’t that great and could not compare with Zang Xiao, who improved by himself. In reality, however, Seventh Mei Yu truly was magnificent and talented of her own accord; she could grasp hold of a complete secret skill that was relatively perfect.
But now, it seemed that the one they underestimated most was actually the one called Dong Bo, who previously seemed able to use only direct and overbearing moves. Who would have thought he was hiding other moves?
Was it really the case that, up until that point, he was deliberately putting on a front of being overbearing?
“His secret skill is also quite perfect, but slightly lacking when compared to Seventh Mei Yu’s.”
“He just hasn’t had enough time to cultivate. Seventh Mei Yu has lived for eighty thousand years already, but Dong Bo has merely spent about two thousand years cultivating. For his secret skill to be lacking by a bit is very normal. However, he has the Mirage Deity Heart, which essentially makes it so that two of him are participating together in this battle. His Mirage body can never die, so I feel like he has some chance for his kill count to surpass Her Highness, Seventh Mei Yu’s.”
Second passed after second, and Xue Ying’s battle was starting to become taxing. After all, the black-robed men continuously increased in strength, until they eventually reached his own level.
Hong long long~ The offensive ability of the black-robed men already reached a terrifying level. At that point, a single move from their part could easily exterminate a Fierce Shaman Warrior.
“Time for the final stage!” Xue Ying reached his last stand. He was now using his body to directly withstand the attacks.
This was his Time Immemorial Body, a technique that specialized in survivability.
Back in Crimson Rock Mountain, Xue Ying had long since experimented with the limits of the third level of Time Immemorial Body and even tested the limits of the fourth level. Thus, he was feeling relatively confident.
“He has a World Deity ranked secret technique focused on survivability.”
“He even cultivated it to the grand success stage of the Deity realm.” The ones watching him from the high platform—the Calm Sea Prefecture Master, and Monarch Mo Xue and the others—let out an involuntarily laugh. The two old men even turned toward each other as they continued laughing. The Calm Sea Prefecture Master said, “Hahaha, who would have thought the two of us would lose like this.”
“I’ve won! This is awesome, so awesome!” The White Sand City Lord was so happy that his grin stretched from ear to ear. Moments ago, Xue Ying’s kill count had nearly reached Seventh Mei Yu’s. Once he began using his body to directly resist the attacks, it didn’t take long until he surpassed Seventh Mei Yu.
To the sides, the yellow-robed Venomous Ying World Deity, Marshal Qin, the Ink Cloud City Lord, King Rong Hai and the emissary were all helpless and speechless at the same time.
This was a loss they could accept—Dong Bo’s combat power was, indeed, stronger than they expected.
On the surface, it seemed like he had at least two World Deity ranked secret techniques, and he had trained them both to the limit of the Deity realm. It must be mentioned that there were quite a few who got their hands on World Deity ranked secret techniques, but very few of them succeeded in reaching the peak of Deity realm; it was a very difficult task. Even Xue Ying had only reached that level of the Great Chaotic True Force after getting through the Stafield Selections. As for the Time Immemorial Body, only after reaching the stage three realm of the grade one True Meaning of the World did he break through.
“I admit defeat.” Xue Ying’s body was very tough, and the black-robed men could not harm him, but it did not take long until his true body was finally surrounded.
He found no sense in continuing after they entangled him, so he immediately admitted defeat.
He was expelled back in mid-air, from where could see a large amount of figures below. All of a sudden, a sound was transmitted into his ears, “The twelfth batch has ended!”
The voice reverberated across every single location throughout the world.
For a moment, everyone below was looking toward Xue Ying, and even the existences on the high platform were staring in his direction.
After all, Xue Ying had lasted for an unusually long amount of time! His undying body allowed him to hold on for much longer and keep fighting until he had no more ways to continue.
I truly was last to exit, Xue Ying thought. I wonder what my rank will be.
He immediately flew back to the region where the people of Mountain Wu Star Field were located.
From a different location, Zang Xiao looked coldly at Xue Ying, who was descending from mid-air. He was among those who came out quite early. So what if he lasted longer? Who knows, this brat might not even rank in the top thousand.
“Brother Dong Bo, not bad; that was a truly good performance. Wait until the Prefecture Capital battle is over. I have a gift for you.” Up on the high platform, the White Sand City Lord smiled as he looked toward Xue Ying. He had even transmitted a message over for Xue Ying’s ears alone to hear. He was in an ecstatic mood after having won huge in the previous gamble!
The sound of the White Sand City Lord’s voice startled Xue Ying so much that he jolted from his position.
The handsome teenager dressed in white robes who had long since come out, Seventh Mei Yu, smiled at him. “Brother Dong Bo was actually the last to come out, and with no injury to be seen on your body no less. Truly admirable, truly admirable.”
“Coming out last doesn’t necessarily mean my kill count is the best. Let’s just wait until the rankings come out; we will know then,” Xue Ying replied.
