Chapter 496: Overbearing, Terrifying!
Translator: Radiant Editor: Radiant
Powerful combat power, that was the true way to intimidate someone!
Once the ones present at the scene saw the terrifying might behind Xue Ying’s strike, they were all left in shock and disbelief, and the status they had assigned to Xue Ying in their hearts was surging ever upward. By now, it was not just Xue Ying’s potential that was great; his actual combat power had already reached such a terrifying stage that he could easily intimidate others.
The Venomous Ying World Deity suddenly disappeared, while large amounts of fog appeared all over the place and eventually condensed into another Venomous Ying World Deity. She was standing there, holding onto her poisonous trident and looking at Xue Ying in disbelief. She was the only one to truly feel that palm strike with her own skin, and she clearly realized just how powerful it was.
In an instant, Xue Ying’s figure expanded to a towering height of about five million kilometers. He then extended his right hand, with which he grabbed his scarlet-red spear that had just appeared like a huge blazing fire.
The Luminous Sun Force truly is as powerful as expected. Xue Ying inwardly sighed in praise.
The “Luminous Sun” absolute art had been known throughout the Bloodshed God Palace by one phrase: Like the dazzling, strong sun, it can conquer any obstacle in its path.
Just how dazzling was the Bloodshed God Emperor himself? Even he had commended this absolute art.
That was precisely because the “Luminous Sun” was an extremely overbearing absolute art. It must be stated that a qualitative gap existed in-between the usage of the :aws of any stage two and a stage three World Deity. This was one of the main facts that made it extremely difficult to surpass one’s own realm during battle.
But absolute arts would bring about great advantages in certain aspects, covering up weaknesses in terms of the usage of :aws.
It was similar to how the legions of the Bloodshed God Palace could depend on the legion arrays. These arrays had been personally crafted by His Majesty, the Bloodshed God Emperor himself, so it was only natural that their strength would be so great.
In a similar fashion, the “Luminous Sun” absolute art granted its user tyrannical strength and extreme speed! It took after the sun, which was dazzling and strong! After Xue Ying brought his cultivation up to the third boundary of the second volume, his strength and speed already eclipsed stage three World Deities! Even if he was weaker than them in terms of his usage of the :aws, he could still triumph over them in battle!
After all, once someone successfully cultivated to the third boundary of the second volume of this absolute art, they would be able to suppress stage three World Deities!
That was how imposingly powerful this absolute art was! Like the dazzling, strong sun, it would conquer any obstacle in its path.
“Venomous Ying, stop resisting. You’re no longer able to defend yourself.” Xue Ying brandished his enormous Scarlet Cloud Spear. The Luminous Sun Force passed through the entire spear, causing it to reach an even higher level! Xue Ying thoroughly understood that, on that first strike, his opponent had been careless, having tried to match force with force. After losing out once, the Venomous Ying World Deity was unlikely to take the same approach and would definitely try to overpower him through the Laws of Profound Mysteries.
In that case, Xue Ying simply had to be more imposing. He would not show any mercy.
The Venomous Ying World Deity attempted to flee, yet faced with the omnipresent lashes of the enormous spear, she couldn’t help but try to make use of her poisonous trident, employing mystical waves to try and guide the incoming spear away.
She was no longer trying to overpower the spear, and instead tried to rely on the Laws of Profound Mysteries to battle.
Even then, once the two weapons clashed—despite it not being any more than a very slight contact and much unlike the previous clash of power—the Venomous Ying World Deity could still feel a terrifying impact rushing out from her weapon and into her body, sending her flying all the way back into the mountain behind. As she hit the mountain, her body gouged out a hole in it. At the sight of it, her complexion paled even further. I’m not even trying to overpower him through force any longer, yet even the slightest bit of contact with his weapon still sent me flying backward. His close combat power is too strong, stronger than even White Sand’s.
The White Sand City Lord could triumph in battle because of his Annihilation White Sand, but in a close-combat encounter, even he would not match up to Xue Ying.
It was mostly due to the Luminous Sun Force within his body, but it was also because Xue Ying specialized most in close combat.
“Dong Xiao, you still haven’t moved to help me?” the Venomous Ying World Deity transmitted. “Don’t tell me you forgot about your clan master’s orders.”
“Don’t worry,” Dong Xiao replied with a gulp. In truth, he did not wish to act. Xue Ying was simply that overbearing! To think that a stage two World Deity could be so so strong already… Even then, in spite of his unwillingness, he had already received his orders from Monarch Wu Chen to protect the Venomous Ying World Deity.
Dong Xiao took a single step to arrive right next to the Venomous Ying World Deity, and a black saber appeared in his hand.
“Are you still resisting capture?” Xue Ying continued his display of spear techniques, every one of his moves being so fierce and ferocious that the Nest of Myriad Devils by the side began to crumble and shatter from its foundations. Many of the arrays had already been destroyed, and even with Dong Xiao now working together with the Venomous Ying World Deity, they were still completely suppressed. At most, they could try to evade the incoming attacks and rely on their superior usage of the Laws to keep struggling.
“How come this feels similar to fighting General Wu?” Dong Xiao felt his heart trembling.
“If you had been facing General Wu, you would not have been able to struggle for so long,” the Venomous Ying World Deity replied, despite her heart having already turned bitter. The Nest of Myriad Devils where she had lived for such as long time was being destroyed and damaged before her eyes. Apparently, it was quite easy to break the construct apart; as long as a minor part of the arrays was damaged, the entire array would become useless. Half of the supporting power which the Venomous Ying World Deity received from the arrays was already lost.
Xue Ying shouted out with a frown, “Stop struggling!”
Hong hong hong hong hong hong hong!
Many enormous figures could now be seen forming all around the void, each and and every one of them taking the form of a towering Xue Ying at five million kilometers in height. Nine Xue Yings had formed in the void, for a total of ten when also including the one wielding the Scarlet Cloud Spear.
“Kill.” These nine World bodies, if not for them not having a blood-refined Deity warrior each, would not lose out to the true body in terms of pure strength. Each wielded its own spear and were all tyrannical in might.
Countless white tips began flying out all around the black-robed Xue Ying. They began to move in a criss-cross motion with one another, rapidly shrouding both Dong Xiao and the Venomous Ying World Deity.
Xue Ying had clearly lost his patience and decided to just display his killing move to capture Venomous Ying in one fell swoop!
Nine World bodies!
“This…this is just…I’m starting to feel like he’s even more terrifying than General Wu.” Dong Xiao looked up at the ten enormous figures of Xue Ying and could immediately tell that he could not match even one of them in strength. As soon as the white tips arrived and restricted him, he was overcome by fear. He quickly waved his hand to grab the Venomous Ying World Deity and said, “Let’s flee!”
Spacetime began distorting, and Dong Xiao pulled along the Venomous Ying World Deity to escape through it. Clearly, this was a World Deity ranked secret technique focused on spacetime.
Xue Ying frowned. By now, his biggest weakness was related to his movement techniques. After all, he had yet to make any improvements related to spacetime. On top of that, none of the secret techniques which he cultivated in were of any use when it came to movement.
“You want to escape?” Xue Ying waved his hand, and a Starfield Flying Ship immediately appeared in the void before him.
Sou sou sou sou sou sou…
His ten figures then immediately landed on it. When it came to piercing through spacetime passage, was there even any secret technique which could surpass a Starfield Flying Ship?
“Xi Wei, you guys will wait for me here and protect my wife and the others in the meantime. I’ll come back in a while,” Xue Ying’s voice had yet to reverberate by the time he had already disappeared using his flying ship.
“Yes, Your Highness.”
Xi Wei, Commander Bai Li, Commander Jiu Qi all acknowledged the order.
Everyone watching the battle from the side had a hint of terror and astonishment in their eyes. One Xue Ying had already been so tyrannical, but for ten of them to have appeared at the same time? That was nothing short of excessive! He had actually beaten both Dong Xiao and Venomous Ying to the point that they had to flee.
“Father is…father is just too powerful!” Dong Bo Yu’s eyes brightened up. “Truly…this is just…”
Everyone present, including the World Deities from the Nest of Myriad Devils and the hundreds of millions of Deities had watched the battle in complete astonishment.
The way they saw it, any one of Xue Ying’s body had enough destructive power to wipe all of out with a single thought.
“Quick, let’s get out. Quickly now!” Dong Xiao and the Venomous Ying World Deity found themselves in a difficult situation, despite having fled through the spacetime passage. By now, both had entered their own Starfield Flying Ship. Previously, they had been trapped in the World Prison, and they did not have the time to take out a Starfield Flying Ship while under the joint attack of ten Xue Yings.
“You guys can forget about escaping.” A starfield flying ship had already appeared behind them. Xue Ying was staring at them from the bow of said ship’s deck. With a thought from his part, hua hua hua, his nine world bodies appeared right next to Dong Xiao and the Venomous Ying World Deity, each of them holding onto their own spear. With a horizontal sweep, they separated Dong Xiao and Venomous Ying World Deity from each other.
Chi chi chi~
Countless white tips appeared, restricting the two.
As they watched the surrounding white tips restrict them and the nine Xue Yings surround them, the two World Deities fell into despair.
“How… how could this be? How long has it even been?” The Venomous Ying World Deity simply could not believe the situation. Just a while ago, Xue Ying was nothing more than an ant to her, but he had become so powerful in what seemed like the blink of an eye. She was beaten like a stray dog. No, unlike a stray dog, she had no way of escaping!
