Chapter 752: The Strongest Paragon
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
On top of the simple arena, Xue Ying stood facing Lie Yang.
Xue Ying extended his right hand, and a silver spear appeared. At the same time, “boom~”. With Xue Ying as the epicenter, a blood wave surged out, producing shockwaves in all directions, covering every single part of the battle platform. Paragon Lie Yang had no ways of evading this. He was instantly submerged.
The current Xue Ying’s Dao of Slaughter and Dao of Ripple had reached their limits. They were only a single step away from achieving perfect eternity. Of course, that step was like a gulf between heaven and earth! The advancement in his realm, along with his self-created absolute art, “Wind Ripple Path”, allowed Xue Ying to further his strength and abilities, and the ‘Slaughter Domain’ had become more perfect and powerful.
“Mn?” Paragon Lie Yang, who was situated within the blood wave, felt a hidden force continually permeating into his body. It was vibrating at every single part of his body as if it wanted to destroy him. Furthermore, the layers of ripples were like a spider web–it restricted him.
“Such a frightening domain. It could actually harm my body. Furthermore, the longer I remain in this domain, the heavier my injuries will be, and the greater the restrictions I will face.” Paragon Lie Yang immediately treated this Xue Ying in front of him as the most terrifying Paragon opponent he had ever faced. “I have to end this battle as fast as possible! I cannot delay it any further!”
Like Red Devil God-Emperor who had his absolute move which could withstand the Slaughter Domain…
However, the current Slaughter Domain was much stronger. Additionally, Paragon Lie Yang was indeed not good at domain-related techniques.
Still, he had other moves!
Paragon Lie Yang suddenly let out a furious roar.
His aura abruptly surged, and his robe also swelled and expanded. His originally glossy skin formed a leather membrane that was visible to the naked eyes. Even his eyes were covered in a transparent membrane. Apparently, his aura had increased by several times.
He immediately unsheathed the saber on his back. With a flash, he leaped towards Xue Ying and wildly swung his saber.
“Clang!” Xue Ying originally stood there, though the spear in his hand was like a python. It suddenly jumped out to parry against this incoming blade, and the surging strength in his body was wholly transmitted into the spear.
Paragon Lie Yang could only feel a heaven-shattering mighty force being transmitted over from the spear. Furthermore, this strength contained a mystical ripple that came in waves. He was unable to withstand it, causing the blood in his body to fluctuate along with the flow. In the end, he was forced back, spurting out a mouth of fresh blood.
“He is actually stronger than me?” Paragon Lie Yang could not believe this. His strength was stronger than most Rulers, yet he was still disadvantaged in this fight? He had been injured to the extent of spitting blood?
Paragon Lie Yang may have been pushed back by a single strike, but his braided silver hair suddenly elongated, twisting towards Xue Ying in a frenzy and enveloping him.
Xue Ying’s spear might be formidable, but facing a total of 93 thin braids, he had no time to defend himself against each and every soft, unpredictable, and fast braid. Thus, he was bound by those braids and was completely restricted.
“Seems like he’s facing some trouble.” The Rulers who watching the battle held their breaths. The fight between the two of them was too fast and intense. It was clear that they wanted to quickly determine the victor.
“Hong!” In the instant that Xue Ying was entangled by the silver braids, his two arms trembled explosively. “chi chi chi~” All the silver braids were suddenly stretched taut, but they were still able to resist Xue Ying’s strength.
Paragon Lie Yang stopped his backward momentum. His braids had currently elongated to a length of more than 50 kilometers. They covered the skies, thoroughly entangling Xue Ying. He looked at Xue Ying with a shocked expression. “Such strength, I’m barely able to restrain him.”
“I can’t escape from this?” Xue Ying was also astonished. His speed of cultivation on the Primogenitor Devil Mountain was relatively quick. The effect of cultivating here for just six million years was equivalent to his progress from the previous 30 million years. He had already reached the 8th level in the “Walker’s Hidden Secret”. Earlier in the fight, he was actually shocked when he could force the other party to spit out blood with a single spear.
But now, the other party’s hair had entangled him, yet his strength was insufficient to allow him to escape this bind?
A layer of black light suddenly appeared on the surface of Xue Ying’s body. The black light layer was revolving, and every strand of light was like a sharp blade, slicing and destroying everything. It was none other than the Voidwalker lineage most destructive move, ‘Termination Energy’.
The Termination Energy enveloped his body. Xue Ying was like a Demonic God who had emerged from the darkness. Every single part of his body, including his black hair, was covered with the terrifying Termination Energy.
He once again erupted with his full force!
The many silver braids were once again forced to vibrate. However, this time, the sharpness of Termination Energy on Xue Ying’s body directly forced the many silver braids to break apart with a ‘beng beng beng’.Paragon Lie Yang, who had initially intended to use this opportunity to launch an attack, was extremely shocked. Large numbers of broken hair braids were rapidly retracted, and he glared at Xue Ying. He was famous for being overbearing in his battles, yet in today’s fight, he was actually at a disadvantage.
While it seemed slow, in actual fact, Xue Ying had merely struggled twice before succeeding in breaking apart these silver braids.
“Kill.” Paragon Lie Yang let out a furious roar. Wielding his blade, he once again charged towards Xue Ying.
Switching to close combat, each and every one of his silver braids was floating around him, shifting around restlessly.
With a flash of his blade, he slashed Xue Ying, and the silver braids were also sinisterly sending sneak attacks.
Facing so many braids along with the saber, Xue Ying felt his face paling.
“”Wind Ripple Path”–Twin Ripple Kill!” Xue Ying immediately displayed the absolute art he spent many years to create–”Wind Ripple Path”. This was an absolute art used for battling.
The surface of Xue Ying’s body began emitting many strands of black Termination Energy. The Termination Energy could imbue weapons and other items for battle. They could similarly be used for direct combat! The many strands of black Termination Energy had two special blood ripples revolving around each strand, just like the Yin-Yang Fish. The two ripples would generate a frightening, destructive force every single time they came into contact.
“Pu pu pu”… Large amounts of black Termination Energy shot out simultaneously, and Paragon Lie Yang was unable to react in time. He could only rely on his own fleshy body to resist this attack!
“Die for me.” His silver braids were still shooting towards Xue Ying. Even if he was going to be injured, he had to eliminate Xue Ying with this single move.
However, the strands of black Termination Energy were like fishes as they tunneled into Paragon Lie Yang’s body. The Termination Energy, infused with the profound mysteries contained within the “Wind Ripple Path”– Twin Ripple Kill, had reached a genuinely terrifying level. Paragon Lie Yang was not any weaker than Xue Ying’s body when he first entered the Primogenitor Devil Mountain, but he could not defend against this attack. He was directly penetrated by the many strands of energy, and the Termination Energy had already begun destroying his body.
Paragon Lie Yang’s body was densely covered in bloody holes, and his face wore an expression of shock. Even his offensive moves had been affected by that attack. After all, his injuries were pretty severe, and the copious amount of Termination Energy that had penetrated through him were still wrecking his body.
Fortunately, his body was strong enough. Weaker Rulers might have already exploded from this technique.
“Hu.” Xue Ying’s spear pierced forward again.
Xue Ying had used his full strength to stab forward. Termination Energy revolved on the spear while the two bloody ripples continuously intertwined, surging forward towards Paragon Lie Yang. Paragon Lie Yang’s body was so heavily injured that his movement was affected, and he was not confident of using his saber to defend against this attack. Many of his silver braids began to rapidly shoot out.
“Pu pu pu~”
As the silver braids were surrounding Xue Ying, his spear forcibly penetrated through Paragon Lie Yang’s body. A huge, bloody hole had been torn open in his chest with a violent tremble, and the Termination Energy propagating within his body had become clearly visible, evidently yet to be exhausted.
Additionally, the ripple from the Slaughter Domain was also permeating through him. His already severe injuries were continuously being worsened.
“I admit defeat.” Paragon Lie Yang surrendered, his mouth filled with fresh blood.
Everything was silent.
The Slaughter Domain immediately dissipated. Xue Ying, who was just about to launch another attack, retracted his spear. The leftover Termination Energy also rapidly withdrew.
Paragon Lie Yang glanced at Xue Ying. Without the corrosion from the Termination Energy, the wound on his body was gradually recovering. His long braids also shortened, returning to their usual length. He looked at Xue Ying and nodded, “I wholeheartedly accept my loss. I was actually defeated by you in direct combat. You are stronger than me.”
“You are also very strong.” Xue Ying replied.
The other party was indeed powerful.
If he had not cultivated for six million years on the Primogenitor Devil Mountain and had not created the “Wind Ripple Path”, he would not have been able to escape from Paragon Lie Yang’s silver braids. He would have been forced into his Mirage World. At that point in time, he could only rely on his Mirage World to carry out sneak attacks on the other party. The other party’s body was quite solid. Furthermore, with the support of his many braids, it was tough to say if Xue Ying could succeed with his sneak attacks.
After six million years, he had improved holistically. Even if he did not utilize the Mirage World and Void Evasive Maneuver, he could win against the other party in direct combat.
“Congratulations, Paragon Dong Bo, for becoming the strongest Paragon of Primogenitor Devil Mountain.”
“Haha, this battle between Paragon Dong Bo and Paragon Lie Yang is truly a spectacle.” The spectating Rulers were all commenting on the recent battle. It was a battle that most new Rulers could not survive.
Both Xue Ying and Paragon Lie Yang admired each other. They both had their fair share of opportunities, and Xue Ying knew that without the ‘Voidwalker lineage’, he would have had no chances of winning the battle. Paragon Lie Yang sighed as he commented, “I have met many miraculous encounters and cultivated for a long period in the inner layer of Primogenitor Devil Mountain. In the end, I still lost.”
Xue Ying bid farewell to several Rulers. With a new puppet servant–the one who had previously served under Paragon Lie Yang–the female puppet led him into the inner layer.
“Master, there are a total of nine cavern-dwellings in the inner layer of Primogenitor Devil Mountain. They are located at the nine huge hubs of the Primogenitor Devil Mountain’s arrays.” The puppet girl proceeded onwards through the black fog, and they entered the depths of the Primogenitor Devil Mountain, “The nine cavern-dwellings are being occupied by eight Rulers and one Paragon. Earlier on, there were several Rulers from the inner layer who were spectating the battle.”
Xue Ying nodded.
“Look.” The puppet girl pointed into the distance.
There was an area enshrouded by rainbow-colored light. A luxurious cavern-dwelling, about 50 kilometers wide, was currently floating in midair in the direction she was pointing. That was the cultivation cavern-dwelling, and one of the nine great hubs of the Primogenitor Devil Mountain.
“That is Master’s cavern-dwelling, and it will be your cultivation ground from now on.” The puppet girl said.
Xue Ying walked over.
He swept his gaze around, observing his surroundings. There were faint rainbow lights around him, where other cavern-dwellings were floating about. He understood that these were the other cavern-dwellings within the inner layer.
He flew directly towards his cavern-dwelling. The front door of the dwelling was open, and when Xue Ying flew closer to it, an extremely melodious sound began to play beside his ears. It was resonating with his soul.
“Wu ji la…” The illusory voice sounded within his soul. Xue Ying’s eyelids began to droop, and his eyes became smaller and smaller before they eventually closed. He revealed a grin and had completely fallen into a deep sleep.
Not just this avatar of his, even the red-robed Xue Ying, who was cultivating in an Eden treasure on a certain desolate planet in the Devil Mountain Cosmos, had fallen onto the grass and into a deep sleep.
In the Cultivator Cosmos, the Xia Clan world, within the Crimson Rock Mountain world.
Xue Ying, who was originally chatting with his wife Jing Qiu, had suddenly closed his eyes with a grin. He fell onto the ground powerlessly.
“Xue Ying.” Jing Qiu was startled, her expression immediately changing, “Xue Ying, what happened to you? Wake up, wake up!”
Primogenitor Devil Mountain.
Xue Ying, who had fallen into a deep sleep, still had a smile plastered on his face. His body had subconsciously flown towards the front door of his cavern-dwelling.
“Hahaha, this Paragon Dong Bo has already started his “Dream Cultivation”.” Several Rulers within the Primogenitor Devil Mountain had noticed this scene–they saw Xue Ying falling into a deep sleep.
“This is a huge opportunity that one can only gain within the inner layer of the Primogenitor Devil Mountain. This Dream Cultivation is something that one can only hope for.”
“The moment the Dream Cultivation begins, it cannot be stopped prematurely. Only after the cultivation ends will the person wake up. I wonder how long he will stay asleep.”
“Judging from his soul, this Paragon Dong Bo seems to be very young. His comprehension ability is quite high. Adding the fact that this is his first time cultivating in a dream, he will most likely spend a long time cultivating. In my opinion, he should take at least 500 million years.”
“500 million years? I think he’ll probably take one billion years.”
“Regardless, the longer it is, the greater the benefits! Haha…”
The Rulers within the inner layer of Primogenitor Devil Mountain had already experienced many Dream Cultivations. Thus, they were extremely familiar with it. The reason why Paragon Lie Yang could not acknowledge the challenge previously was precisely because he was stuck in a Dream Cultivation.
