Chapter 617: The Strongest Killing Move
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
That time during the opening feast, Fifth Uncle Master had given him that black feather as a celebratory gift. Xue Ying had spent much time comprehending this, and out of the five secret skills he had grasped, he had created two from this black feather. Even though it was just a feather, its contained a colossal power within.
This move–the ‘Black Feather Land Suppression’–had been displayed. During the process of slashing the spear, the strength in his body would accumulate before finally, just like a ‘Land Suppression’, it would all be blasted out! One could say that this was utilizing the full strength of Xue Ying, and if he met Emperor Qi Hai and the others once again, Xue Ying could most likely slap them away with one single move.
‘Not good.’ Bamboo Saint looked upwards, seeing that huge spear which felt like sky pillar forming a vast land illusion. The entire land illusion presented a strange feather appearance.
Bamboo Saint could feel an intense peril in his heart, ‘This spear cannot be dealt with head-on.’
He immediately descended. At the same time, a magnificent aura began emanating from the central chain of palaces on the Ink Bamboo Land. Tens of thousands of streams began flowing in all directions, encompassing and shielding the majority half of the land. His elder brother, ‘Leaf Saint’, was the one who constructed this array. In Bamboo Saint’s opinion, other than Patrol Devil King and others at his level, nobody beneath Paragons could threaten him in his territory.
“Hong~” The Scarlet Cloud Spear which was akin to a sky pillar came crashing down regally.
Bamboo Saint looked up from within the array.
Only when he looked on from a close distance could he discern the actual illusion of the vast feather-like land illusion, and only then could he feel a greater terror striking him.
‘Why would there be a feather land illusion?’ Bamboo Saint thought, ‘Whatever, I’ll not fight him. Instead, I’ll hide here under the array and borrow its power to defend against him.’
Given his arrogance, he wanted to fight back originally.
But seeing the force from this spear, that thought vanished. He chose to hide like a turtle in its shell instead! He had no choice for the spear was too powerful! It was primarily because Xue Ying’s strength was dominating, and had two compatible absolute arts–”Luminous Sun” and “Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body”, one cultivated energy and other cultivated the physique. These two absolute arts were hard to obtain since just the “Luminous Sun” alone was filled with Yang and toughness, and was an absolute art that sought supremacy in strength.
The other absolute art cultivated the physique. However, to search for one that could reach the standards of the “Luminous Sun” was difficult. Only the “Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body” from the Destruction Legion could match its strength.
With the two being employed collectively, it gave him a power approaching Patrol Devil King’s. Besides, with his current realm reaching a higher level and after comprehending the ‘Black Feather Land’ technique, he was naturally able to display a power that horrifies others.
The Scarlet Cloud Spear smashed against that array which was letting out tens of thousands of air streams.
Under the gigantic land illusion suppression, it caused the entire array to warp. Following which, “pa pa pa pa pa pa”! Part of the array had collapsed. Even the tens of thousands of air streams were starting to disintegrate.
‘How could this be!’ Bamboo Saint looked on from within the array with disbelief as the entire array had directly collapsed, ‘This is Elder Brother’s array, how could this be?’
But it wasn’t that improbable.
The current offensive power of Xue Ying was an entire level greater as compared to when he fought with three other powerful existences on the Three Chieftains Sacred Mountain. It was also because he had cultivated for 700,000 years without displaying his strength that Primal Master did not change his ranking. One could say that this powerful technique which he just exhibited… though it might be slightly weaker than Patrol Devil King’s strength, it should be at least 80% of his power.
Regardless whether it was Xue Ying or Patrol Devil King, both of them could match against ordinary Paragons with their offensive power!
With this technique, it would naturally break the array.
“Die for me.” After Xue Ying broke the array with his spear, the power of his spear technique drastically reduced. Bamboo Saint waved a red pole and easily parried against this spear.
But Xue Ying just kept and hacked the spear down again with the same move!
The spear was immense, and the Black Feather Land illusion appeared once again.
‘He strikes again?’ Bamboo Saint was scared and infuriated. He did not have the slightest thought of meeting head-on against this, ‘Dong Bo Xue Ying should be ranked close to the legendary Patrol Devil King with this frightening technique of his, yet why is he still ranked 52nd?’
Bamboo Saint’s body turned into an illusion as he escaped. The red pole in his hand grew explosively. At the same time, many branches appeared around the pole. The entire pole had seemingly become a gigantic red bamboo. When Xue Ying hacked down his spear, for a moment, it besieged the many branch leaves and distorted them.
‘I can’t block this. His dominance in power over me is too huge! I’ll only be swept away by him completely.’ Bamboo Saint’s expression changed considerably, ‘I have to escape. Otherwise, it’ll be the end for me.’
Just like when he was at the Three Chieftains Sacred Mountain, Xue Ying might have the upper hand regarding strength when fighting against Emperor Qi Hai, though firstly, the difference was not that great and secondly, Xue Ying’s techniques were too crude. Others could completely evade his move and target his flaws.
But it was no longer the same now.
Xue Ying’s spear technique was straightforward, yet the other party could not easily break it, or so at least the cunning Bamboo Saint could not do so.
“I can’t break it. But you can’t prevent me from escaping.” Bamboo Saint was full of confidence as he flew away at high speed.
“Wanting to escape?”
Bamboo Saint looked on stupefied.
Nine figures appeared right in front of him–they were all ‘Xue Ying’ in deep blue robes.
“World Bodies?” Bamboo Saint frowned, “Are you thinking of stopping me without your Blood Refined Deity Warrior?”
“I can likewise overpower you even without my Blood Refined Deity Warrior.” The nine deep-blue-robed ‘Xue Ying’s acted at the same time.
Furthermore, at the same time–
A tremendous luminous sun force appeared in the vast surrounding space. Under the revolving luminous sun force, the surrounding scene had changed! Bamboo Saint looked around him with shock. It was initially his Ink Bamboo Land, yet now he could only see that he was in a sealed world. This sealed world had parts collapsing and were severely damaged, turning into a grayish fog.
The grayish fog pervaded the place and enveloped Bamboo Saint.
Bamboo Saint suddenly felt himself entering a swamp, and even moving was taxing for him.
‘Domain?’ Bamboo Saint had a tremendous shock in his heart. This Xue Ying wasn’t just stronger physically as stated in the reports. Did he not excel in other aspects too? That technique he displayed previously could be managed, yet this domain he displayed was horrifying.
Xue Ying slightly nodded at seeing this.
These few years, he had been researching in that broken array scroll given by Ripple Lady Planet Master and had once attempted to set up that array. The profound mysteries within the array had reached a deep and profound stage. Xue Ying had researched it for many years before finally crafting this secret skill. It was also one of his five great secret skills under the world aspect–’Sky Dome Fog Prison’.
‘I can’t escape.’ Bamboo Saint was trapped in this broken-looking world. After being enveloped by that fog, he knew he could no longer escape, ‘But my Ink Bamboo Body is solid. It isn’t easy for him to kill me. This body should be able to withstand for a period.’
“Big brother, big brother, quickly come and save me.” Bamboo Saint was requesting for help.
Despite asking for help, he was quite confident in surviving. One could see his body transforming. The bones and muscles in his body turned into that of black bamboo. Even his face had changed into a black bamboo. His voice became piercing, “Dong Bo Xue Ying, who would have thought that your combat power had become so much stronger after 700,000 years! But wanting to kill me isn’t something easily done.”
‘Two Saints Ink Clan’s Leaf Saint?’ Xue Ying who was holding on to the Scarlet Cloud Spear afar used karma to sense that Leaf Saint had already set off. But he still required some period before reaching.
‘This is long enough to kill him.’
‘Dying in front of my strongest move is too easy for him.’ Coldness filled Xue Ying’s eyes. He took out the flying knife from his waist.
Flying Knife, True God weapon.
The shaft of the knife was dark, and the blade itself was a glittering silvery white.
