Chapter 180 Little Fatty vs Lion King! (2)

Naturally, while a Legendary Set was extremely powerful, making use of the power was not just so simple. To make full use of the thirty two times of strength, one had to fully activate the power of each individual Consolidated Equipment piece, transferring and gathering all the power together in a concentrated burst. That was exactly what Zhou Weiqing was doing now, gathering all the power into his right arm, to the ‘crying-face’ Hammer in his right hand!

Another massive explosion, and Gu Site’s entire body was savagely smashed into the ground without any suspense, with both his legs drilled right into the icy ground of the cavern. Although with his tough and powerful Heavenly Emperor Stage body, his arms and legs were not broken by Zhou Weiqing’s terrifying strength, the blood he had been forcing himself not to spit out previously finally came out. Zhou Weiqing landed right beside Gu Site, his hammers striking out at Gu Site’s head for the third time in an explosive strength. Taking on the impact of the previous hit was no issue for his powerful body in the Dragon-Tiger Transformation state.

Gu Site was extremely vexed! The reason why he was now in such a disadvantage was because he had severely misjudged Zhou Weiqing’s power, and that underestimation had led to him being surprised by him so many times. Growling angrily, he concentrated hard and the brilliant shimmer of the Divine Guardian Angel appeared around him, protecting his body.

Alas, almost at the same time, another illusory figure appeared behind Zhou Weiqing. This time, it was the Demonic Dragon Lady.

How many Skills with the Heavenly Skill Image does this brat have?! The thought sprang up simultaneously in both the Lion and Tiger King.

Still in shock, Gu Site had no time to be angry as he hurriedly circulated his Heavenly Energy to the maximum with his hands facing upwards, his entire body spinning in a whirlwind as powerful gold light sprang forth. The light soon turned into a massive gold tornado, fully enveloping his body.

In Gu Site’s eyes, it was without question that Zhou Weiqing was once again using a Heavenly Skill Image to neutralize his Divine Guardian Angel Skill before his hammer with that terrifying strength landed once more. Having just used two powerful Skills, he was for a short time indisposed from using too much Heavenly Energy, and he had no choice but to now use his strongest Skill to defend himself.

Alas, this time Gu Site had guessed wrongly. Zhou Weiqing had been striking down at him with such swift and fierce momentum, but the next moment he actually stopped in midair, his wings spreading apart and causing his body to hover right before he actually reached the Divine Guardian Angel barrier. In the short moment of time, the Heavenly Skill Image of the Demonic Dragon Lady had fully coalesced and his prepared Skill was ready to be used.

As the purple red light glowed in the air, Xue AoTian couldn’t help but furrow his brow. How could the Lion King make such a ‘newbie’ mistake?

Although Gu Site had told himself over and over that this young man in front of him was no ordinary six-Jeweled Heavenly Jewel Master, he was still a Heavenly Emperor stage powerhouse… how could he not have feelings of disdain and underestimate his opponent? Furthermore, Zhou Weiqing’s series of actions and abilities had truly gone beyond any of the present powerhouses’ expectations and judgement. It had just been too shocking. Even Xue AoTian had been caught by surprise several times, let alone Gu Site. As such, the Lion King had not been able to bring his full power into play, falling into Zhou Weiqing’s rhythm and trap. At this moment, Zhou Weiqing had made use of this ‘Inertia of thinking’ that Gu Site had fallen into to spring this new trap.

The purple red flash of light appeared within Zhou Weiqing’s formation, and his body did an about-turn in midair, as he retreated to the side to wait. A faint smile appeared on his face as he looked at the Lion King Gu Site. He was in no rush at all, and he could now afford to sit and wait for a while.

The Divine Guardian Angel Skill had indeed come into effect, and this powerful Skill had an ‘Absolute’ effect as well. If Zhou Weiqing tried to use his Dragon Silencing Seal on Gu Site now, it would be totally wasted. However, though the Divine Guardian Angel Skill was indeed powerful, but just like the Six Ultimate Skill Manipulation Formation, it had its own set of limitations. In this case, the flaw was simple – when the user was within the Divine Guardian Angel Shield, he would not be able to move about, or unleash another Skill. This was the reason why Gu Site’s spinning body was unable to move, and could previously only circulate his Heavenly Energy into the gold whirlwind of light to protect himself.

As a result, Zhou Weiqing could now wait calmly at the side. No matter how fast the Lion King could unleash his next Skill, it could not be faster than the Dragon Silencing Seal that Zhou Weiqing now had prepared to go at anytime. As for Clashing of Heavenly Skill Images, it had to be activated within a certain time limit of the Heavenly Skill Image being summoned; once it was fully coalesced, that was no longer possible.

Due to that fact, normally a Clash of Heavenly Skill Images was done by a later Skill used to neutralized an earlier one. That was to say, Zhou Weiqing could have used his Heavenly Skill Image to neutralise the Divine Guardian Angel, but not the reverse.

As such, Gu Site was now stuck using a powerful defensive Skill for nothing, as well as wasting his Heavenly Energy in the whirlwind of light, and was unable to do anything about Zhou Weiqing’s Dragon Silencing Seal.

Calm, unhurried and confident. Those words could be used to describe Zhou Weiqing at this point. Who could have imagined that a mere Upper Level Zun Stage Heavenly Jewel Master could push a Heavenly Emperor Stage powerhouse to such a degree, even one so restricted like Gu Site had been!

Abruptly, two bouts of purple-red light shot out from Zhou Weiqing’s eyes, before it flickered off once more. All of a sudden, the Divine Guardian Angel Skill around Gu Site vanished without warning.

It was the Clash of Heavenly Skill Images! However, just as Gu Site was overjoyed, thinking that Zhou Weiqing had not been able to resist in using his Dragon Silencing Seal to neutralise his Divine Guardian Angel Skill… the next instant, a purple-red vortex appeared over his head. His Skills were suddenly all restricted!

What … what the **** is going on?! Once again, Zhou Weiqing’s actions were unreadable to the Lion King Gu Site. the Dragon Silencing Seal had clearly been used to Clash with his own Divine Guardian Angel Skill, yet… yet… how could it still come into effect?

Let alone Gu Site, even the Tiger King Xue Aoying who had a bird’s eye view of everything going on was utterly confused. Of all the powerhouses present, only Long Shiya who was familiar with all of Zhou Weiqing’s Skill could fully understand what was going on. Even Xue AoTian could only vaguely guess what had happened.

Xue AoTian’s judgement was that Zhou Weiqing had somehow activated yet another hidden Heavenly Skill Image Skill, using that to neutralise the Divine Guardian Angel Skill before activating the Dragon Silencing Seal in the same instant.

His judgement was indeed accurate. Zhou Weiqing had actually used the Demonic Dragon God Seal, also from the Demonic Dragon Lady, to neutralise the Divine Guardian Angel Skill. As the Heavenly Skill Image was also of the Demonic Dragon Lady, he was able to superimpose and disguise it perfectly. In truth, if he had attempted to actually use this Skill, it would be Zhou Weiqing himself asking for death. After all, not only was Gu Site far stronger than him, he also had the Spirit Attribute. The Demonic Dragon God Seal would not only have been useless, it would have probably been returned to damage himself. However, just like with the Time Reversal Skill, using it to neutralise the Divine Guardian Angel Skill was a whole different matter. Once again, another perfect timing and a worthwhile trade of a useless Skill to neutralise the Divine Guardian Angel Skill.

Zhou Weiqing might not have much, but he definitely had tons of Skills. In fact, the powerful Heavenly Skill Image Skills he had were no lesser than most Heavenly King or Heavenly Emperor stage powerhouses. Six Attributes! He could pretty much go Skill Storing at will. In fact, even now, after reaching the fifth and sixth Jeweled stage, he still have many ‘empty slots’ that he had not Stored Skills yet.

The Absolute effect of the Dragon Silencing Seal had come into effect! That meant that within the next minute, the Lion King Gu Site was no longer able to summon his Consolidated Equipment or use his Stored Skills. Even if the former was already restricted, but the latter was a major blow indeed. So what if he was using Heavenly Energy of the eight-Jeweled stage? Facing a six-Jeweled Heavenly Jewel Master with Six Ultimate Godly Light Formation, five God Tier Consolidated Equipment of a Legendary Set… what could he do? Furthermore, Zhou Weiqing still had the Dragon-Tiger Transformation!

With a hearty laugh, Zhou Weiqing’s entire body pounced towards Gu Site like a bolt of lightning, the twin Hammers in his hands swirling eagerly. This time, he was not trying to last as long as he could, but was actually attempting to defeat the eight-Jeweled Lion King Gu Site!

Seeing Zhou Weiqing leap at him, Gu Site suddenly understood. This fight, even if were his son with his full power, facing this six-Jeweled little brat, he might not even win.

With no Stored Skills to use, restricted at the eight-Jeweled Heavenly Energy… am I really going to lose?

Gu Site’s eyes suddenly turned calm and serene. Facing the pouncing Zhou Weiqing, his face turned expressionless, only lifting his right hand slowly towards to incoming youth.

Ten yards. Zhou Weiqing was barely ten yards from Gu Site. With his charging speed, that was closed in barely a blink of an eye.

Gu Site’s raised right hand had his palm outwards facing Zhou Weiqing, as if attempting to stall Zhou Weiqing’s attack. Yet, everyone around could see that he might block one attack, or even two, but without any Skills or Consolidated Equipment and with his Heavenly Energy restricted, how long could he last against that terrifying strength of Zhou Weiqing?

A relieved and satisfied expression flickered across Long Shiya’s face, while a hidden flicker of happiness flashed in Xue AoTian’s eyes before it disappeared, hidden away. The Tiger King Xue Aoying also had a gleeful look on his face as he chuckled at the Lion King’s misfortune. However, in an instant, an abrupt change erupted.

Just as Zhou Weiqing was about to strike Gu Site, he suddenly saw the Lion King’s palm light up with a crimson red glow.

In that moment, the Seal restricting Gu Site burst apart, and he resumed his Heavenly Emperor stage cultivation level.

Smashing apart the Seal, releasing an attack. The entire process happened in a split second. Just as the expressions of the other three powerhouses froze, a resonant lion’s roar rang out as a huge gout of crimson flame swallowed Zhou Weiqing entirely.

The flame connected right back to Gu Site’s palm, and the fire spouting out formed the image of a giant lion in midair. As the huge crimson lion formed, the temperature of the entire icy cavern rose abruptly. Besides a single leg that was outside the flames, Zhou Weiqing’s entire body was engulfed in the flames.

“NOOOOO!!!!” Long Shiya howled in crazed rage. He no longer cared that it was a competition, and with a flicker of his arm, a terrifying Heavenly Energy smashed into Gu Yingbing, sending him flying. Another palm strike lashed out at Gu Yingbing while at the same time, his entire body pounced towards the Lion King Gu Site.

Xue AoTian was already by his side in a flash. Naturally, he would not allow his disciple to be killed like that, and he quickly blocked the enraged blow which would have finished Gu Yingbing off. However, he did not attempt to block Long Shiya from pouncing on Gu Site.

A terrifying aura burst out from Long Shiya’s body, his entire ‘Hate Sky no Handle’ Legendary Set appearing all at once. The Silver octagon plum blossom Hammer still glowing with the dark gold light of being summoned, smashing down hard on Gu Site in a frenzy.

    1. His name is WeiQing, not ZhouWei. Zhou is his surname. We Chinese have the surnames in front to first acknowledge our ancestors, whom without we will never exist. 🙂

  1. Well, our MC should be fine thanks to his immunity / high resistance to fire, but can Gu Site in his current state take even a single hit from the enraged Long Shiya in his legendary set? The Lion moron might die before the smoke even has a chance to clear and reveal a slightly tanned MC…

    1. considering this fire is from his core and is probably about to get absorbed by the MC for a power boost, leaving the king without his core, he will likely die before long even lands a blow. It can’t be that he isn’t expecting long to retaliate after trying to kill his precious disciple.

      1. If this happened, leaving him a core-less, helpless, pathetic wretch… it would be Site’s own fault, and merely the consequences of the attack itself. But, for the dishonor of the attempted assasination, he deserves to be banished from the empire if not killed outright by either Long Shiya or ZW.

        And, he ended up screwing his son over. Because, it was still not *absolutely* clear to me that ZW could have kept Site’s abilities sealed and maintained the upper-hand until the clock slowly ran out on Yingbing’s fight.

    2. Aw man… I just grew back that hair. D:

      I kinda wish Fatty would be burned to nothing there. >.> But I kinda wish the lion prince would have been dying now due to Long too tho. Then with both dead, and an orb being left by Fatty. That is then given to Tier so she suddenly becomes the main caracter with all 4 saint atributes. And she goes to take over Zhou’s responsibilities in his place. Marrying the 3 sisters and the demon sect girl. Leading the army. Then goes to save Zhou’s kindome.
      Creates world peace. Saves her mother and live happy with her wifes the rest of time. The end. ^.^

    3. I can imagine Long Shiya beating Gu Site into the wall of the cavern, and Xue AoTian comes to him and says “He is not dead”. Then Long Shiya turns to him while stepping on Gu Site and says, “I know that he is alive! He is immune to fire, I just cant forgive this shameless cat trying to kill my disciple”.

    1. The son might go unpunished, but the dad will probably lose his core from using this attack and die, or die to long’s rage. He did just try to kill the only reason the king’s one and only loved daughter is not committing suicide; in addition, there is also the fact that the King and his wife/lover also seem to have a plan involving the MC and their daughter growing stronger together in order to free the king’s lover. With all those factors, I can’t see the dad being spared from death, unless there is a very severe punishment.

  2. Fire? Instead of using a spirit attack or something he decided to do a fire attack against someone who has a dragon bloodline? His intelligence is only matched by his morality.

    Also I hope that after this, we are done with the competition. Although I haven’t found the arc tiring this was an offence even heavier than the one that gave them the excuse to start this competition. Especially since Xue AoTian knows his daughter’s feelings and how enraged Long Shiya will be, if he has thick enough face to request the competition to continue, he deserves his daughter leaving him and Long Shiya constantly undermining his empire. Unless of course he has the Lion King fully assume responsibility by not protecting him at all against Long Shiya’s attacks, but unfortunately we all know he’s going to step up once things start looking really bad.

    1. to be fair, he still can’t use his stored skills so he might not think just using his spirit attribute energy to attack would actually do much. This fire attack is apparently from his very core (in other words its not a stored skills so he can still use it) so it might of been his only real option to use as an attack. From our point of view it is stupid because we know the MC is immune to fire, but from the tiger king’s perspective it might seem like a good idea due to this lack of knowledge. Dragons have been in seclusion for a very long time now so it shouldn’t be a stretch that he would overlook this trait of theirs, and he also doesn’t know the extent the MC inherited those traits.

    2. Maybe just having the dragon bloodline doesn’t guarantee fire immunity, just resistance? Douche King was probably banking on the fact that a human having a high concentration of dragon blood was a near impossibility, plus his full power should augment the flames enough to overcome any resistance.

          1. You never saw the Disney movie “the lion king”?
            That’s what Scar tells Mufasa (the lion king) before he drops him off a cliff.

    3. I’m pretty sure, it would only make sense, that the final competition, would be the daughter’s choice. Because, it needs to be proven that the she, in fact, chooses ZW over Yingbing. If you think about the challenges, they essentially pencil out to the following;
      1) Who will the people most likely submit to.
      2) Who is most fit to defend the empire.
      3) Who does my daughter want to marry.

      If ZW failed in any one of these challenges, the AoTian would be correct letting the promised marriage go forward.

    4. He may think the kid is doing fine against fire… or maybe not… but these are not normal flames. I would say they are more the same type of holy flames that Fatty had to sit in for so long. He will probably loose whatever hair he got tho. D:

      1. He should not be immune to fire, it should be a resistance, anything below the threshold is nulled, anything above is reduced by the threshold amount. Knowing the MC he will not bet on the resistance being enough, and like you said its not a normal fire.
        He’ll use blink instead, there’s a reason why he maximized the angel shield time by going to the dragon’s seal “in hold” time limit.
        Alternatively the space piercing skill used to dodge towards his master works fine too, he still has 3 skills available in the ultimate formation and should be able to end it if it was not loaded.
        Absolute fetters(not sure if that is the name), will give 3 or so seconds of near invulnerability if he sets himself as the target, with his personality and the killing intent warning it should be loaded.

  3. hopefully, this will give Xue AoTian a reason to void the 3rd competition and give ZW the win. since Gu Site has already violated the rules and attempted to kill ZW any further expectations of them following Xue AoTian commands seems pointless add in the mother-in-law’s approval and this should be game over already.

  4. Lol at that Gu Site. Damages his life vein to gift more power to Little Fatty who was announced to have solidified dragon spirit. Good going dude. Sure he doesn’t want to get embarassed, then embarasses himself.

  5. Thanks for the chapters.
    Damn Gu Site really doesn’t care if the marriage is voided, huh? He really f-ed up here and pissed off someone he shouldn’t have. But with Weiqing having a high resistance/immunity to fire, didn’t expect Long Shiya get that pissed so quick lol

    1. Thanks for the chapter.

      I’m thinking a reflex trigger. His brain shut down at the sight of a heavenly emperor attacking his precious 6 jeweled disciple with a full powered attack and didn’t register the element of the attack.

      Also that cliff, wow, just… wow…

    2. >.> He is not totally imune to fire tho. And this is clearly not some weak normal fire. I guess you can call it soul fire.

      And now if he got to marry, he will have to do it without his hair. D: Silky smooth. And he probably lost his cloths.

  6. Thanks for the chapter.

    Xue AoTian was already by his side in a flash. Naturally, he would not allow his disciple to be killed like that, and he quickly blocked the enraged blow which would have finished Gu Yingbing off.

    Sure, I won’t let my own disciple be killed after my lapse in judgement put yours in danger. I mean why should I make things fair right?

    Classic Xue AoTian if you ask me.

      1. Putting aside what would be just in case ZW died, I actually feel like the entire situation could have been avoided. If Long Shiya simply stated all parties that are strongly interested and even invested in ZW, and therefore parties that are likely to seek revenge if something were to happen—namely, the Saint Land where 2/3 Princesses already willing to die for him, and the Saint Land that hopes to have him revitalise their dwindling Saint Attribute—this murder attempt would most likely have been deterred.

        If the moronic Lion King heard this, then the consequence part of the equation in his head would change from “upsetting Long Shiya” to “upsetting Long Shiya + 2 Saint Lands” (not to mention upsetting Xue AoTian and likely losing his support). Even Gu Site’s limited brain prowess should see that being the obvious culprit behind ZW’s demise is no different from having himself and his empire commit suicide.

  7. LoL, both chapters were starting with almost the same paragraph, that shows the autors will to ley de untherstand how dificult the use of a legendary set is.

    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. But did you know that Little Fatty’s Six Ultimate Godly Light Formation is star shaped! Yes, I know. Its hard to grasp, and very easy to both miss and forget. But its clearly an important part of the skill. So unlike Big Fatty, his got these edges right. Like a star. But it also got the hexagon. Just with 6 spikes. Apperently this makes it a bit weaker at absorbing energy tho. However it allows him to store 6 skills. 1 in each spike or star arm if you will.
      Six Ultimate Skill Manipulation Formation that Long has. It is just a hexagon. Therefore the new name Six Ultimate Godly Light Formation. For Zhou got spikes making his hexagon a star.

      To sum it up in case I did not make it clear. Little Fatty uses a star to fight. I can not wait to read how he trow that thing at his enemy Naruto style. 😀

  8. just want to point out two things
    the first paragraph is the same as the last chapter I believe it’s a typo but I’m not the trailer so I could be wrong

    in 179.3 there’s a paragraph that says if if a little fatty completes his legendary set his strength would be 512 times is original strength, that’s incorrect, thats if he has 9 pieces if he has 10 pieces it would be 1024

    1. because I don’t know how to edit my post I’m just going to explain here
      0 equipment = 1 strength
      1 equipment = 2 strength
      2 equipment = 4 strength
      3 equipment = 8 strength
      4 equipment = 16 strength
      5 equipment = 32 strength
      6 equipment = 64 strength
      7 equipment = 128 strength
      8 equipment = 256 strength
      9 equipment = 512 strength
      10 equipment = 1024 strength
