Volume 1 –
Chapter 914 – Drastically Increased Will
Lin Ming stood on the sky with the violent Battle Will that had formed into a storm around him. As it dominated, even the space couldn’t bear that pressure and had gradually become distorted.
A terrifying oppression emanated from Lin Ming’s body.
Lin Ming felt that the violent Battle Will in his mind was like a volcano and the energy had practically wanted to destroy his mind, thus veins were wriggling on his forehead.
But at this moment, he had forcefully suppressed the violence in his mind as he fixed onto Mu Chen with his scarlet eyes. When he saw that the latter had closed his eyes, the corner of his eyes lightly twitched as he eerily said, “Even at this point in time, you still dare to act. You’re truly courting death!”
At the same time, when the powerful will had caused intense pain to his mind, it had also given Lin Ming great confidence. Under this state, he was absolutely confident that he could suppress Mu Chen.
Although they were both on the level of Ten Thousand Rune Battle Formation Masters, the number of runes that he had condensed could be considered as outstanding, even amongst the levels of Ten Thousand Rune Battle Formation Masters.
Whereas Mu Chen had just broken through the foothold of a Ten Thousand Rune Battle Formation Master, so it was basically impossible for Mu Chen to confront him.
Victory was already in his grasp.
Although he was thinking this way in his mind, Lin Ming still vaguely felt a little uneasy. Someone as cautious as him had told him that this battle couldn’t be delayed on any further. Mu Chen, who stood before him, wasn’t a simple opponent; and now, since he had the opportunity, he had to beat Mu Chen to the point that he didn’t even have any energy to stand up.
As this thought flashed through his mind, Lin Ming’s gaze abruptly turned ferocious and his seals swiftly changed. Up above in the eyes of the massive black skull, there were crimson flames, which made it look alive.
A visible wave of violent Battle Will abruptly dominated from the black skull. Space undulated as the huge mouth of the black skull slowly opened up.
Black runes were violently gathering near its mouth with destructive fluctuations emanating from it without any noise, causing the experts that looked from the surroundings to have their eyelids twitching.
The Kings of the Great Havenlaw Domain had tightly clenched their fists as they looked at Mu Chen, who had remained quiet. At this sort of time, the only thing that they could do was to hope that Mu Chen still had cards up his sleeves.
“If this Mu Chen has no other means, then he will definitely be defeated by Lin Ming.” When the Demon Gate and Myriad Saint Peak watched this scene, they inwardly shook their heads. The current situation was completely grasped by Lin Ming, and if Mu Chen was out means, then it would be tough to shake the victory of this match.
Under countless gazes, Lin Ming’s eyes surged with a brilliant light as the black runes in the mouth of the massive black skull was gathered to the limits.
The corner of Lin Ming’s face slowly lifted into a vicious smile, before he abruptly joined his hands. His voice, which was filled with killing intent, resound, “Devil-Devouring Art – Devil-Devouring Death Light!”
The mouth of the black skill abruptly opened its mouth wide and the black shock waves had roughly turned into a hundred foot-sized black beam of light that shot out.
The black light was extremely bizarre, without any fluctuations. It was deathly silent and in the depths of it, even the Spiritual Energy in this region was annihilated by it.
When the experts in this region sensed how powerful the black light was, they vaguely felt their scalps going numb. If they were to be struck by this attack, even the Spiritual Energy in their bodies would be erased. This attack from Lin Ming was extremely overbearing and vicious.
Facing such an attack, how would Mu Chen fight?
Under the countless gazes, the black light had shot across the horizon, enveloping Mu Chen. It was as fast as a bolt of lightning, making it impossible to dodge.
At the rear, the Asura King had tightly knitted his brows. His body had tensed up as well. If Mu Chen couldn’t resist Lin Ming, then he could only forcefully take action to save him.
As the deathly beam of light enveloped over, and when everyone thought that Mu Chen had given up resisting, the latter had suddenly opened his tightly shut eyes.
Lightning seemed to flash in his black pupils, which were as sharp as a hawk, as if he could nearly pierce through space.
Zhantai Liuli was the first to sense the change in Mu Chen’s eyes and her face couldn’t help changing. That’s because, as a Battle Formation Master herself, she was extremely familiar with the energy of will. Although it did not have a form, the eyes of a person could display the energy of will the most. Thus, the change in Mu Chen’s eyes had undoubtedly proven that his will had become extremely powerful in that instant.
In that short period, when he had closed his eyes, his will had grown stronger!
“That fellow truly cannot be seen through.” Zhantai Liuli’s tense heart had loosened up at this moment. Regardless of anything, she and Mu Chen had once sincerely cooperated and knew some of each other’s secrets. Compared to vicious people like Lin Ming and Xiao Tian, Zhantai Liuli was clearly more willing to be friends with Mu Chen. Therefore, her heart had sided more towards Mu Chen, although it was an outcome in contrast to the one that the Divine Pavilion was anticipating.
In that instant, when Mu Chen opened his eyes, the deathly black light had swept over and was reflected in his eyes, causing his eyes to be even more abstruse.
Afterimages flew as his hands joined together.
The bodies of the five troops jolted. They seemed to have felt an abnormal energy beaconing them. Under the abnormal beacon, the Battle Will that surged from their bodies had instantly grown stronger.
The massive ocean of Battle Will swept out and swiftly gathered behind Mu Chen. As the storm of Battle Will whistled, everyone could see the appearance of a war banner.
The surface of the war banner was encircled with lightning and packed with dense runes that had turned brilliant. In that instant when the war banner appeared, the entire region had instantly darkened.
An indescribable oppression was being emitted from the war banner.
“That war banner…” Everyone had squinted their eyes as they looked at the war banner, before sucking in cold breaths. That’s because they had realised that there were over 16,000 runes on it.
It was more than the black skull, which Lin Ming had formed!
Clearly, Mu Chen had utilised a special technique at this moment to make his Battle Will stronger, thus he was able to refine more runes with a similar level of Battle Will!
When Lin Ming saw this scene and felt the number of runes on Mu Chen’s war banner, he had squinted his eyes. But his first reaction was that Mu Chen was trying to put on a show to intimidate him. Furthermore, even if it was real, both sides would only be able to fight on the same level. Since he had the initiative, it wouldn’t be so easy, even if Mu Chen wanted to counter that attack!
Therefore, Lin Ming had no hesitation and the deathly light had brought along a violent momentum as it ferociously descended.
Mu Chen grasped the air, as if he had grasped onto the massive war banner, and waved it with a sharp gaze.
“War Banner Spirit!”
The massive war banner was like a blade that swept down from the horizon. In that instant, when it swept down, the five troops had unleashed an enraged roar as their Battle Will whooshed like tidal waves and poured into the war banner.
Along with the Battle Will endlessly pouring into the war banner, more runes appeared on it.
“The number of runes is increasing!”
Someone exclaimed as they realised that the momentum of the war banner was increasing along with the number of runes!
In just a few breaths of time, the runes on the war banner had reached 17,000!
Zhantai Liuli’s body trembled and her face became extremely grave with shock at the same time. Just how much did Mu Chen’s will strengthen to? Could it be that his limit was not 16,000 runes?
“How is that possible?!” The shock had filled Lin Ming’s face at the same time as disbelief filled his eyes. But very quickly, he had spoken again with his teeth clenched, “You want to deceive me with this illusion?!”
He knew that there were some Battle Formation Masters that possessed the illusion techniques to intimidate their opponents and thus, obtaining the initiative to the battle. Thus, his first reaction was naturally thinking that Mu Chen was trying to use that technique to gain the initiative of the battle.
Thus, facing Mu Chen’s counterattack, he did not show any hesitation as the deathly black light enveloped Mu Chen.
At this moment, if anyone held their moves back, then they would face the annihilation attack from the other party.
“War Banner Slash!”
At this moment, Mu Chen had waved his palm down. The war banner was like an extremely sharp blade that had instantly descended and struck against the deathly black light under countless gazes.
In that instant of collision, the gaze of every expert was shot over.
When the war banner slashed over, everyone could sense that the number of runes on the war banner had already reached a stunning amount of 18,000!
Even Zhantai Liuli had her heart jolting from this number of runes.
