Chapter 1432: I will destroy it with a slash of my saber
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
The expression of the experts from Skymist were all extremely heavy and ugly to behold. A peak-phase mid-stage immortal king of theirs dying here was a great loss to them. In addition, the expert who died was even of the royal clan.
They provoked Qin Wentian and fought him together, yet one of them was actually killed like that. How ridiculous was this?
“This brat must die. He cannot be allowed to survive.”
The stronger Qin Wentian was, the stronger their killing intent towards him would be. Given the depth of their mutual hatred, if Qin Wentian continued to grow stronger at such a speed, what heights would he reach? In the past before the adjudication battle, he was merely an insignificant character. But now, he could already kill peak-phase mid-stage immortal kings.
Also, as he matured, the powers supporting him would become more and more. Even the Southern Phoenix Matriarch had expressed her stance personally now. If they allowed Qin Wentian to grow, he would be even more difficult to kill in the future, completely out of their control.
On the other side, Little Rascal was still devouring the attacks from the white tiger and the immortal king from the Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire. The two powerful immortal kings joined forces, wanting to quickly kill the heaven devouring beast yet they couldn’t do so. On the other side, Qin Wentian finished off his opponent from the Skymist Immortal Empire as he turned and dashed towards Shangguang Jianyi.
At this moment, the sword might radiating from Shangguang Jianyi was still as strong as ever. He was protected by a screen of swords, like a supreme sword paragon. Every bit of sword energy in that area contained an extremely powerful sword intent.
However, Shangguang Jianyi’s expression was now heavy. He stared at Qin Wentian, his sharp eyes were now filled with a faint hint of fear, no longer having the disdain and arrogance of earlier.
Both his hands folded incantation techniques as his bloodline power was activated. Swirls of sword qi enveloped this entire space, as the sword might grew increasingly powerful, forming a heavy pressure. With a stab of his finger, the sky suddenly changed color.
“DIE!” Shangguang Jianyi roared. Everything in his domain became swords for him to use, shooting towards Qin Wentian.
As a supreme genius of the Paragon Sword Sect, even if he felt a huge sense of threat from Qin Wentian, he had to fight head-on. He mustn’t cower.
“A sword formation of the Paragon Sword Sect?” The hearts of many experts trembled. The divine elephant guardian formed by Qin Wentian’s blood avatar was still there, shining with fearsome runic light. Thunderous rumbling sounds echoed throughout, the sword attacks slammed into the barrier, emitting fearsome sounds while countless swords surrounded Qin Wentian, attacking with wild abandon. Just by spectating, the crowd could feel chills in their hearts.
“Bzz!” The divine elephant transformed into a roc once more. Spreading out its wings, it shot through the sky like a golden bolt of lightning. The feathers on each wing were sharper than swords, easily slicing apart Shangguang Jianyi’s manifested swords.
When Shangguang Jianyi saw the roc advancing, he folded more ancient incantation gestures as he stepped towards Qin Wentian. The boundless sword qi in the area transformed into a towering screen of swords. The light from the diagram grew resplendent to its limits and cast its shadows on Qin Wentian.
At this instant, Qin Wentian felt like he was trapped in a sword prison. He could sense an impending crisis. Seems like Shangguang Jianyi was preparing to unleash his strongest ultimate attack.
“As expected of Jianyi, the Paragon Sword Formation, summoning a true paragon sword, locking Qin Wentian within the prison where the might of a million swords gathered. I don’t believe he can survive this.” An expert from the Paragon Sword Sect heaved a sigh of relief, feeling pride that Shangguang Jianyi was a part of his sect.
With the formation formed, even the gods and demons would cry.
Now that Qin Wentian was trapped, it would be tough for him to escape from this calamity.
Seeing that Qin Wentian was unceasingly trying to destroy the screen of swords to reach him, a decisive glint of light flashed in Shangguang Jianyi’s eyes. He looked up in the air and roared, “The appearance of the Paragon Sword shall destroy the myriad of things in the world. As the sword formation forms, gods and demons shall all be vanquished!”
As the sound of his voice faded, that terrifying sword formation caused a supremely sharp sword to appear from the void. Or more accurately, it was just a shadow that directly appeared in the space above Qin Wentian. As the sword shadow was cast on Qin Wentian, it locked his position and if this sword slashed down, it would definitely hit him accurately. There was no suspense.
This sword will definitely be enough to finish Qin Wentian.
“SHUT!” Qin Wentian coldly roared. After that, his God’s Hand domain formed two gigantic palms that were spread apart. The two palms then slammed shut together, targeting the sword.
“KILL!” Shangguang Jianyi howled, his killing intent engulfing everything. The boundless swords formed by the formation radiated a blinding light, infusing their power into the paragon sword shadow. At that instant as the gigantic palms closed in, a thunderous boom rang out as the paragon sword actually broke out from it.
“The second strike!” Shangguang Jianyi continued. The light from the sword diagram still flared brilliantly. Qin Wentian inclined his head, his eyes flashing with tyranny as he punched out. The bloodline avatar transformed into a sky roc and activated a greater demon technique, manifesting numerous rocs that threw themselves at the paragon sword, trying to slow down its momentum.
“Third strike!” Shangguang Jianyi roared loudly, stepping out. The sword might grew even stronger, seemingly boundless and unending. This was the only method Shangguang Jianyi had that was powerful enough to kill Qin Wentian. Only through unleashing a torrent of attacks would he be able to disregard Qin Wentian’s defense.
Qin Wentian attacked frenziedly as he defended against the swords shooting at him. However, he knew that if the sword formation wasn’t broken, there would be no way out of this predicament.
“I want to see how you can block it.” Shangguang Jianyi icily spoke. The spectators below all felt their hearts shaking. Such an intense fight between two powerful combatants was truly exceptionally rare.
Shangguang Jianyi’s strength was undoubtedly terrifying, more than a level more powerful compared to the peak-phase mid-stage immortal king from the Skymist Immortal Empire.
When Qin Wentian heard that, his eyes flashed with arrogance. Activating his bloodline, his strength had explosively surged up. In addition to all the ultimate arts he cultivated, even if Shangguang Jianyi’s cultivation was higher than his, it was of no concern to him at all. So what even if the sword formation was powerful? He would press forth with indomitable might, using pure strength to destroy the formation. Since so many people wanted to kill him, only by killing these people in a sufficiently domineering manner would shock the rest of the crowd.
“Who says that I want to block it?” Qin Wentian replied. Devil might churned wildly in his surroundings as the projection of an ancient devil appeared. A devil saber materialized in Qin Wentian’s hand. His eyes flashed with resolution, lifting the saber and cleaving down with it with all his might. A black streak of lightning then arced through the skies, slamming into the sword might released by the paragon sword as both exploded upon impact.
“No matter how strong your attack is, I will destroy it with a slash of my saber.” The devil intent in the area become extremely tyrannical, disregarding all existence. With the devil saber in his hand, the sword intent in the area suddenly weakened, as though wanting to submit under the tyrannical devil might.
“Rise!” Qin Wentian slashed upwards with his saber, brimming with an unparalleled saber might, slashing apart another wave of Shangguang Jianyi’s sword might. Stomping on the earth, he advanced forth, moving closer and closer to his opponent.
Shangguang Jianyi’s expression grew incredibly ugly to behold. Even using his ultimate attack, it was insufficient to kill Qin Wentian?
“I don’t believe it!” Shangguang Jianyi threw his head back and roared. A rumbling sound rang out as his astral soul materialized into an actual sword, radiating an aura of pure destruction, before slashing downwards.
The devil saber in Qin Wentian’s hand flared with the strongest devil light, with God’s Hand reinforcing the attacking strength. He stared up in the air and blasted out, causing eight manifestations of supreme greater demons to attack together with his saber light.
“BOOM!” A terrifying collision occurred. Qin Wentian had no expression. He stared at Shangguang Jianyi and spoke, “Since you want to kill me, you should have no regrets being killed by me.”
As he spoke, his saber slashed forth. Shangguang Jianyi turned pale, he folded ancient incantation gestures, producing an immense amount of sword qi to block Qin Wentian’s attack. But at the same time, a formless saber intent had already penetrated through everything, piercing through Shangguang Jianyi’s head. At this moment, Shangguang Jianyi only felt his soul shuddering. His body trembled as the sword might in the area was reduced drastically.
With another slash, Shangguang Jianyi’s body was almost split apart, turning into nothingness under that dominating saber energy.
“Jianyi!” The experts from the Paragon Sword Sect all roared when they saw this ending.
On the other side of the battlefield, the combat was also exceptionally intense. A heaven devouring beast fighting against two powerful experts. After devouring many of their attacks, Little Rascal actually smiled at the white tiger. After that, he opened his mouth and howled thunderously, blasting out boundless power that transformed into a storm, completely engulfing the white tiger in an instant.
The terrifying power that shot out from his mouth, was actually the power of the white tiger combined with the power of the expert of the Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire.
It was as though all the attacks he swallowed, could be fused together and spat out to deal with his opponents.
“This is then the innate ability of the royal-faction of my race. Only royal-blooded heaven devouring beasts would have this.” Not far away, an aged figure sighed emotionally. Even for attacks stronger compared to the heaven devouring beast’s current level, the heaven devouring beast was still able to devour them and store them in his body, refining it. When needed, the heaven devouring beast could still blast it out, transforming it into his own attack.
Not only was Qin Wentian powerful. A mere demonic beast was also terrifying to this extent, causing great shock to everyone.
“Not good.” The experts from the Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire roared. They saw Qin Wentian and Little Rascal flying towards the remaining immortal king from the Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire, preparing to slaughter him.
“CEASEFIRE!” An immortal emperor from the Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire shouted, wanting to stop the battle.
“Impudent.” The Southern Phoenix Matriarch coldly snorted. A projection of a phoenix directly appeared, blocking the immortal emperor. She wouldn’t allow anyone to interfere.
“AH…” A moment later, a scream of agony rang out. The immortal king from the Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire had died. All four of the great experts were actually killed despite their superiority in terms of numbers. Qin Wentian and the heaven devouring beast stood arrogantly in the air, unexcelled in the world.
Qin Wentian’s silhouette then flashed, moving onto the back of the heaven devouring beast. Purgatory who was behind also sped over, sitting obediently behind Qin Wentian.
“Is there anyone else? I will play with you all to the very end, killing whoever who wants to step out. If nobody dares to, just get the hell out of my sight.” Qin Wentian roared. Little Rascal, the heaven devouring beast slowly strolled forward, his eyes filled with contempt, disregarding everything, as he prepared to leave the area.
