Dugu Qiubai had displayed his extraordinary physique and his strength of peak Emperor, proving to all the disciples that he had the strength to fight several of them at once. However, the nine-colored power Xiang Shaoyun erupted with also stunned many people. His current target was Dugu Qiubai.
He attracted everyone's attention, including the elders. Each of them was greatly shocked. They had not imagined that Xiang Shaoyun would actually be able to accomplish the legendary feat of utilizing nine powers simultaneously. This was a feat that had possibly never been accomplished before and would never be repeated by someone else in the future.
Looking at the incoming Xiang Shaoyun, Dugu Qiubai's pupils shrunk. He had also been given quite a shock by Xiang Shaoyun's sudden show of strength. He had thought that after displaying his Primal Chaos Physique, he would be able to look down on everyone present. Surprisingly, someone still dared to look at him with scorn and displayed such powerful might that a never-before-felt sense of hostility arose within him. It was as though Dugu Qiubai had encountered his predestined rival.
There was only a place for one at the very peak of the dominion.
After a momentary distraction, thick battle intent erupted from Dugu Qiubai. Waves of primal chaos energy rippled out of his body as he faced Xiang Shaoyun with an overbearing punch.
The nine-colored energy clashed with the five-colored energy. Unimaginable destruction ensued, and shockwaves spread in all directions. The ground cracked, and a massive crater appeared on the ground. The surrounding disciples were sent flying away before they even had the chance to retreat. Typically, only battles between peak sixth-stage Soul Foundation Realm experts could result in such intensity and destruction.
The other geniuses on the stages wore solemn expressions as they witnessed the battle. They might be able to unleash a similar might using their trump cards, but they also had a feeling that their trump cards would still be slightly weaker. This was proof that there was already a gap between the two and the rest of them, and such a gap wasn't something they were willing to accept.
When the collision ended and the two separated, Xiang Shaoyun was sent flying high into the air, while Dugu Qiubai was blasted deep into the ground, looking somewhat sorry. All observers were stunned.
"A-Are these two still humans? They are too scary."
"Dugu Qiubai actually lost his initiative? Is the strongest physique going to be defeated? Who exactly is Xiang Shaoyun?"
"Xiang Shaoyun has a nine-star physique, and he cultivates nine powers. He has also fused all nine powers, creating the strongest physique."
"That doesn't seem possible. Hasn't that path been proven to be a dead end long ago?"
"Miracles have always been something waiting to be created. I am satisfied just being able to personally witness the battle between these two physiques."
Xiang Shaoyun did not have the time to be bothered with what others were thinking. He also did not care what Dugu Qiubai was feeling. The only desire he had was to prove to everyone present that cultivating nine powers was not a wrong choice.
His gaze landed on Xiang Chenxi, the Little Overlord. He dashed over with the Overlord's Nine Nether Steps as he said, "Little Overlord, I will make it so that you will no longer dare to use this title from today onward."
When he took his first step, a massive pressure descended upon Xiang Chenxi. Lightning gathered in the sky, seemingly prepared to rain down at any moment.
Xiang Chenxi immediately recognized Xiang Shaoyun's footwork technique, and he exclaimed in alarm, "Nine Nether Steps! How do you know my Xiang Clan's Nine Nether Steps!"
One ought to know that the Overlord's Nine Nether Steps was a technique only passed on within their clan. No outsiders would be able to practice it, and he couldn't accept seeing Xiang Shaoyun using it.
Xiang Shaoyun ignored him and took three steps forward. A rain of lightning started falling from the sky. His soul pressure, which was equivalent to the soul of a seventh-stage Soul Foundation Realm expert, also surged out and pressed down on Xiang Chenxi, suffocating him.
"Whoever you are, I will capture you alive and find out how you learned our Xiang Clan's Nine Nether Steps!" Xiang Chenxi roared and activated the lightning bone within his body. He erupted in power with his mount and unleashed some mutated lighting bolts that he used against Xiang Shaoyun.
He had been tempering his body with lightning since young and had built himself a freakish constitution. He was known as the Son of Lightning, and he had long refined a top-tier lightning power known as the divine purple cloud lighting. This lightning was extremely close in power to the most original lightning, and it was a rare power just like the mystic earth essence energy.
One ought to admit that Xiang Chenxi was someone with incredible luck. On top of that, he had a strong backer, allowing him to become such a remarkable individual. The Xiang Clan viewed him as the successor of the Overlord. Thus, he had been calling himself the Little Overlord since young, hoping that he would live up to the clan's expectations.
The strength Xiang Shaoyun was displaying had infuriated him. Not only did he want to prove his strength, he also wanted to figure out where Xiang Shaoyun had learned the Nine Nether Steps. By the time Xiang Chenxi summoned his lightning, Xiang Shaoyun had taken his fourth step. A boundless amount of lightning engulfed Xiang Chenxi.
The two entirely different energies clashed again and again. The purple lightning seemed much more destructive, but the silver lightning seemed to carry with it a type of presence unique to the soul of a late-stage Sovereign that could crush any powers of the Emperor Realm.
Xiang Chenxi was relying on his divine purple cloud lightning to defeat Xiang Shaoyun, but it turned out that Xiang Shaoyun's presence had instead suppressed him. He couldn't even muster more of his strength due to the suppression, and that remained even after he entered the human mount unity mode. Both he and his mount couldn't withstand the powerful soul pressure, and they were utterly helpless.
Eventually, Xiang Shaoyun braved through the purple lightning and stepped on Xiang Chenxi's face.
The shape of Xiang Chenxi's handsome face twisted as both he and his mount were stomped out of the sky. After sending Xiang Chenxi to the ground, Xiang Shaoyun rushed toward Baili Yixiao like a gust of wind.
"I have long wanted to experience your unrivaled sword. Now, let me witness your sword," said Xiang Shaoyun. He arrived before Baili Yixiao and swung the Overlord Skyslaying Saber.
He entered the human saber unity mode and exhibited remarkable combat strength. The Overlord Skyslaying Saber flew out of his hand as he manipulated it from afar. The saber flew mercilessly toward Baili Yixiao.
Baili Yixiao was already prepared for a fight. With a smile on his face, he replied, "As you wish."
With a casual swing of his sword, a boundless amount of sword energy surged out, enveloped Xiang Shaoyun, and started cutting him. The sword energy was attempting to obliterate him.
This was Baili Yixiao's sword of righteousness. As the saying went, the righteous were unrivaled. The same applied to Baili Yixiao's sword.
Saber and sword collided, and countless saber and sword phantoms clashed. Soon, the stronger fighter will be apparent.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
