Chapter 547: Depending on the Strength of One’s Body
Translator: Radiant Editor: Radiant
“Come with me.” Sir commander immediately flew up to the sky. The other eight black-armored soldiers and three golden-armored captains followed along.
Xue Ying had instead stepped down on the ground, causing the earth to shake.
Releasing strength from both his legs, he leaped up, turning into a streamer as he flew upwards. But when Xue Ying reached midway up the sky, he felt kind of awkward. In the past, he had depended on his World Deity energy, or the luminous sun force to let himself fly rapidly. He had even depended on the undulations of consciousness to directly operate the profound mysteries of law. But now? He could not control the World Deity energy or the luminous sun force. Even the undulations of his consciousness could not be released outside of him.
He could only depend solely on his physical strength!
“Haha, your flying speed is very slow right?” The black-armored monkey had greatly slowed down by the side, giving Xue Ying a weird laughter, “Have a good feel of the fact that you can only use the strength from your body. What the soldiers of the Destruction Legion is best for is our bodies! Our absolute art is also meant to cultivate the body, so all of our defenses are very very powerful. If the usage of your body isn’t good, then it’s better for you not to join our Destruction Legion.”
Xue Ying was enlightened. Body.
Sealing his true deity heart, he could only rely on his body’s strength. So that’s how they were testing him?
As Xue Ying flew, any slight tremble of the muscles and bones of his entire body had brought about a transformation of the laws of the world. The profound mysteries of the World Deity Heart allowed Xue Ying to not have any resistance. Instead, the world was aiding him. The Extremity Deity Heart had instead allowed Xue Ying to charge forward at great speed.
“Weng weng weng~ One could see the places Xue Ying flew across forming several ripples in the space around. It’s just that his flying speed had greatly reduced, and had merely reached about 100,000 kilometers per second.
“Your body is too weak already.” The monkey said from the side as he flew along. At the same time, he was shaking his head and commenting on Xue Ying, “Your flying speed can’t even reach the limit of the laws of the world at 300,000 kilometers every second. Such a joke. Even the weakest soldier of our Destruction LEgion can casually flick his finger to destroy your body.”
“My secret technique isn’t originally specialized in training the body.” Xue Ying answered.
He only had the Time Immemorial Body which meant to train his body. But it was for survival, and it wasn’t good in terms of strength and speed. In addition, it was merely a World Deity ranked secret technique. Xue Ying was even a stage three World Deity only, so his realm of the secret technique wasn’t high. Naturally, he could not compare with the soldiers from the Destruction Legion.
“Properly cultivate your body. It is easiest to strengthen the body.” The monkey said, “World Deity energy and other strengths are considered energy. And the body is categorized under substrance. In terms of explosiveness strength, firmness and defenses, substance has a overwhelming advantage.”
Xue Ying nodded in agreement.
The grade one Deity Heart, ‘Substance Deity Heart’, would give the user extraordinary strength and overwhelming defenses the moment he grasped hold of it. But it had a harsh difficulty in terms of cultivating it. Most stage four World Deities would only begin grasping hold of it only after they began comprehending the side paths. The weaker World Deities would rarely see someone with the Substance Deity Heart, just like the ‘Boundless Deity Heart’. Xue Ying had also seen Jiu She being the only one to display the Boundless Deity Heart during the Myriad Flower Feast.
The commander’s speed flying ahead wasn’t fast. IT seemed he intended to bring along Xue Ying before descending down. The group of other soldiers including Xue Ying also went diving down consecutively.
Xue Ying looked downwards. There was a chain of mountains which seemed verdant and lush. The valleys were deep and dark. Amidst the mountains, there were many cavern structures too. They were currently diving down towards a mountain peak. The mountain peak had long been flattened, with a complete battle platform placed on top.
Sou sou sou! The commander and the others soon landed by the side of this battle platform. Xue Ying too descended by it.
“Go up.” Commander said.
Xue Ying did not ask much. He took a step before landing on top.
“In a while, there will be many enemies attacking you together. There will be an unending stream of enemies, and the time you have to last is indefinite. All you have to do is keep fighting until the enemies take the initiative in retreating. Only then will you succeed and pass this second trial. If prior to the enemies retreating, and that you are defeated or died, naturally, it will be count as a failure. Remember, the moment you are forced out of the battle platform, you fail too.” Commander explained.
“Battle for an indefinite time?” Xue Ying added, “Then what about the number of enemies?”
“They will come in an unending stream. The numbers are indefinite too.” The commander chuckled, “What you have to do is just to hold on!”
Xue Ying was speechless.
If there was a clear limit, then he would have some expectations to look forward to.
But now, he had no idea of how long he had to battle, and it would affect his heart. But Xue Ying was not any ordinary junior. He had regained his calmness soon after.
“It seems that this second trial is indeed determining the potential of my body’s strength.” Xue Ying waved his hand, bringing out a scarlet red spear, the ‘Scarlet Cloud Spear’. Taking a step, he arrived at the center of the battle platform, keeping on alert all around him.
He would lose the moment he got forced out of the platform. Naturally, it would be safer to stay in the center of the platform.
“Begin!” The commander began.
Immediately, black deity marks began appearing on the surface of the battle platform. Countless deity marks appeared, and there was a light cover surrounding the platform with countless deity marks on them too.
One could see the countless deity marks on the light cover bursting forth with energy, condensing into a black humanoid figure who was formed from the stream of light.
This black person was wearing a face mask. He was bare-handed. Immediately with a boom, he charged forward with a rapid speed.
“Pu.” Xue Ying pierced out with his spear. It was direct and efficient. One single spear pierced through the throat of the black man, and this black man’s figure immediately collapsed. The energy soon returned back into the countless deity marks on the surface.
It was slightly startling to Xue Ying. He got rid of him so easily? Something felt amiss.
Following closely, another black man was condensed from the deity marks on the light cover once again. This time, he was holding on to a long blade. Charging forward, his speed seemed far beyond the first.
“Dang.” Xue Ying’s expression changed. He waved his spear to block against the attack. Following that, he reversed his spear and pierced out.
It might seem to be a casual spear technique, but it was actually one of his three secret skills, ‘Life’. Everything was filled with the profound mysteries of the myriad existences of the world. It was a move coming from his inner heart, just like a heavenly steed, soaring to the sky; it was pragmatic.
But this black man seemed to parry against the three spears of Xue Ying. Only the final spear had finally pierced through its chest, piercing it on the ground. His body began dissipating.
Xue Ying’s expression had a slight change. In front and behind him, there were a black man condensed from the deity marks on the light cover. These two black men, one holding on to a pole and the other to a shield and a saber, had both came attacking him at the same time.
“Hong.” The black man holding on to the shield and saber was the fiercer of the two. As he charged over, his shield began surging in size. Within moments, this shield had practically blocked off half of the battle platform. In addition to the fact that Xue Ying’s current speed wasn’t too fast, he could not evade and could only face against the attack.
Xue Ying whirled his spear. The spearbody had become curved. Everywhere it passed through produced many gaps in the world as he lashed out.
Even though he had carefully borrowed upon the energy of the world to defend, when he clashed against the shield with his spear, Xue Ying could not help but take three steps back, “Such a formidable strength. If I was to meet him directly with strength, I would have most likely been forced out of the battle platform.”
The enemies on this battle platform had grown too quickly. One was much fiercer than the other. And the number was even growing too.
“Brat Dong Bo, you have to understand how to unleash the strength in your body.” The monkey was shouting out from afar. The other black-armored soldiers and golden-armored captains as well as the commander were all watching casually. From how they see it, Xue Ying’s control of his body strength was very clumsy.
One could not blame Xue Ying either since he had only focused on using his body’s strength when he was a mortal. After becoming a Transcendent, a Deity and a World Deity, he would either depend on the profound mysteries of the laws of the world or some unique secret techniques, and the luminous sun force. Even occasionally when he used strength to battle, he would depend on his great strength to bully others. After becoming a World Deity, it had been a long time since he had truly gone into studying the potential of his body.
Since the luminous sun force was so much stronger than his body, yet the Destruction Legion was known for their body strength. These undying existences who had lived for nobody knew how long, all felt that it was indeed the case that Xue Ying’s utilization of his body strength was too clumsy.
