Volume 1 –
Chapter 937 – Trumpcard
The Netherworld Prince held the bloody long spear while standing with violent Spiritual Energy that burst out of his body, unleashing an extremely powerful demeanour.
Mu Chen looked at the Netherworld Prince and narrowed his eyes. Back then, when they fought in the Dragon-Phoenix Haven, the Netherworld Prince’s strength was only slightly inferior to Fang Yi’s. But even so, Mu Chen had utilised various means before he could forcefully hold on.
But right now, according to Mu Chen’s senses, the Netherworld Prince’s strength was at the pinnacle of the Fifth Grade Sovereign Realm, only a step away from the Sixth Grade Sovereign Realm.
Compared to the Dragon-Phoenix Haven, the Netherworld Prince had clearly, greatly improved. Furthermore, according to the news that Mu Chen had obtained, the Netherworld Prince had fought with Fang Yi in the Fallen Battlefield, in which the latter had lost.
That showed that the Netherworld Prince’s strength had undergone a huge change. He had surpassed Fang Yi, who was slightly stronger than him. His capability was truly not simple.
“The pinnacle of Fifth Grade Sovereign…”
Mu Chen muttered to himself. If he was in control of Battle Will, defeating the Netherworld Prince was as easy as a flip of his hand. But right now, the situation clearly didn’t allow that. Otherwise, the Netherworld Prince wouldn’t have dared to jump out.
However… if the Netherworld Prince thought that losing Battle Will would mean that he would become a tiger without any fangs, then the Netherworld Prince would be too naïve. Back then, when Mu Chen fought with the Sky-Dragon Tiger that was comparable to a Sixth Grade Sovereign, although he had used a cheap trick, that still proved Mu Chen’s powerful fighting strength.
Anyone that thought of him as an easy target would pay a deep blood price in the end.
When the Netherworld Prince was prepared to make a move at Mu Chen, Fang Yi, who stood by the side with indifference, had his cold gaze suddenly fixed on Mu Chen. Although he also detested the Netherworld Prince, he had still pointed his spearhead at Mu Chen right now. There were orders from the Divine Pavilion Master, but more of it was his grudge with Mu Chen.
Originally, amongst the younger generations in the Northern Region, he had reigned for many years. Even if he was defeated by the Netherworld Prince, the rise of Mu Chen within a year or two had completely surpassed him.
Facing such a genius, Fang Yi and the Netherworld Prince couldn’t help being fearful. So, since they had the opportunity now, the both of them had come to an agreement, joining hands to suppress Mu Chen.
Not only was Mu Chen’s talent stunning, he was still a Battle Formation Master. The moment he controlled a troop, he would possess a strength that would make even a Seventh Grade Sovereign have a hard time to kill him. So now that Mu Chen was without any Battle Will, this was the best time to kill him.
Only by killing Mu Chen, could they seize back the Numero Uno position amongst the younger generations of the Northern Region.
The Netherworld Prince and Fang Yi exchanged a glance with a chill flashing in both of their eyes and dense killing intent.
“Back then, you had used all means available to obstruct me. But now, I’ll see how you achieve that again!”
The Netherworld Prince’s sharp gaze was directed at Mu Chen, before he suddenly took a step forth. The bloody spear in his hand turned into a streak of light and flew out with boundless Spiritual Energy like a mountain, sweeping towards Mu Chen from every direction.
The Netherworld Palace was merciless with his move, the Spiritual Energy in his body had completely exploded forth.
However, in response to the Netherworld Prince’s sharp attacks, Mu Chen had only smiled, then abruptly clenched his fist. A dazzling golden light burst out of his body as a crisp dragon roar and phoenix cry resounded.
Mu Chen balled his hand and the surface of his fist surged with a golden light. The True Dragon Tattoo swiftly wandered to the surface of his fist. As the dragon brandished its claws, a terrifying energy had exploded.
Dragon-Phoenix Physique! True Dragon Tattoo!
Mu Chen brandished a fist out and the True Dragon Tattoo roared. A terrifying energy undulated, which cracked space, before clashing with the Netherworld Palace’s spear.
A metallic clash resounded as a visible shock wave burst out.
The Netherworld Prince squinted his eyes as he realised that Mu Chen had actually managed to stop his attack with his fist. Furthermore, the terrifying energy had even caused the body of his spear to bend a little.
The Netherworld Prince was undoubtedly shocked in his heart. His Netherworld Spear was a genuine Middle Rank Divine Artifact that was so sharp that even ordinary Fifth Grade Sovereigns would instantly have their fists pierced by it. However, Mu Chen’s fist was like a profound metal that had caused his spear to bend.
That strength and powerful physique was simply like a humanoid Divine Beast!
That fellow was clearly a Fifth Grade Sovereign. But why was his fighting strength something that even a pinnacle Fifth Grade Sovereign was inferior to?
A horrifying energy exploded from the spear as the Netherworld Prince clenched his teeth, before he swiftly pulled back his spear. At the same time, he had taken a few dozen steps in retreat from the violent energy.
In this first confrontation, he understood the terrifying fighting power that Mu Chen possessed. Even if Mu Chen couldn’t use the power of Battle Will, he was still a tough opponent to handle.
“I’m afraid that a pinnacle Fifth Grade Sovereign Realm is still not enough for me to flee.” Mu Chen’s black pupils flickered with golden light as he looked at the Netherworld Prince and sofly said.
The Netherworld Prince’s face grew solemn.
“I have already said that he’s not your only opponent.” Fang Yi indifferently spoke out from the side, “Furthermore, you’re simply courting embarrassment if you’re not even going to use your trump cards.”
Hearing Fang Yi’s words, Mu Chen had slightly squinted his eyes.
These two fellows… really have other means?
The Netherworld Prince’s face was solemn. Through the previous probing, he understood that it was probably impossible for him to defeat Mu Chen alone. Inhaling a mouthful of air, he coldly looked at Mu Chen and eerily said, “You’re pretty capable to be able to force me to this step. However, I will make you disappear in the Northern Region after today!”
As he spoke, the Netherworld Prince’s hands joined together and swiftly formed seals with afterimages. Along with the changes of his seals, a deep roar had abruptly resounded, “Netherworld Art – Netherworld Infusion!”
When the Netherworld Prince’s bark resounded, a dark and eerie mist instantly spread out, containing a cold Spiritual Energy.
But right now, the black mist was endlessly pouring into the Netherworld Prince’s head, like a whale sucking in water. Under the infusion of the black mist, Mu Chen could sense that the Spiritual Energy undulations around the Netherworld Prince had started to surge.
In just more than ten breaths, the Spiritual Energy around the Netherworld Prince had broken through the Fifth Grade Sovereign Realm and entered the Sixth Grade Sovereign Realm!
Clearly, the Netherworld Prince had used such a secret technique to allow him to possess the cultivation of a Sixth Grade Sovereign Realm in such a short period of time!
Looking at this sight, even Mu Chen couldn’t help narrowing his eyes.
“Today, and right here, is your graveyard!”
On another side, Fang Yi coldly looked at Mu Chen as he sneered. “I lost to you the previous time. But this time, I will make you return everything!”
As he spoke, Fang Yi clenched his fist and a scarlet pellet appeared in his hand. The pellet was emitting a dense stench of blood.
Fang Yi had immediately tossed the pellet into his mouth and in the next instant, blood veins gradually crawled up his eyes. At the same time, the Spiritual Energy undulations around him had sharply surged!
In just a few breaths, Fang Yi’s strength had broken through into the Sixth Grade Sovereign Realm!
Mu Chen looked at the Netherworld Prince and Fang Yi that both emitted shocking Spiritual Energy undulations and he gradually frowned his brows. It was no wonder why those two fellows were so confident, so they had come prepared.
Facing two Sixth Grade Sovereigns, even Mu Chen had started to feel a slight problem. After all, compared to the Sky-Dragon Tiger that didn’t have any intellect, the Netherworld Prince and Fang Yi were more cunning and fighting them both would definitely be a tough battle.
But it was this pressure that made the blood in Mu Chen’s body gradually boil. This sort of battle was exactly what he needed. The path of cultivation was tough, to begin with, and every improvement would represent a struggle between life and death.
He wanted to give it a try today if the first and second of the Dragon-Phoenix Record could make him stay here for eternity!
The commotion caused by them wasn’t small. After all, this chaotic region had attracted the attention of various other forces and they had immediately started to discuss amongst themselves.
“Fang Yi and the Netherworld Prince are actually working together to deal with Mu Chen.”
“Looks like the Divine Pavilion and Netherworld Palace wants to get rid of that fellow!”
“Mu Chen is a Battle Formation Master. If he is left to grow, he will definitely be trouble in the future. Now that he has lost the support of Battle Will, this is his weakest moment and the best opportunity to kill him.”
“Both the Netherworld Prince and Fang Yi have actually broken through to the Sixth Grade Sovereign Realm?!”
“If that’s the case, then Mu Chen is probably doomed today. It’s really a pity for such a dark horse. Otherwise, he would definitely be the first ranking amongst the younger generations of the Northern Region after this Hunting War.”
All sort of voices resounded. Hong Yu of the Demon Gate, Su Biyue of the Myriad Saint Peak and various other elites of the younger generations in the Northern Region had directed their attention at the confrontation. But facing this scene, they sighed a little. After all, in the Dragon-Phoenix Haven, Mu Chen had used all his means and he only managed to obstruct the Netherworld Prince. But right now, he had actually grown to the extent that the Netherworld Prince and Fang Yi would both cooperate together to deal with him.
His growing speed was simply too frightening.
“If Mu Chen can emerge victorious in this battle, then no one will be able to shake his place as an Overlord amongst the younger generations of the Northern Region. But if he fails, then with the Netherworld Prince and Fang Yi’s character, they will definitely take his life and all his achievements will go down the drain.”
