Chapter 987: Profundity of Light

"Brother, give me a punch. Is this a dream? Has Baili Yixiao's Unrivaled Righteous Sword Technique been defeated just like that?"

"Even a seventh-stage Soul Foundation Realm expert would fear his sword energy. I don't know what technique Xiang Shaoyun used, but he was able to shift the entirety of the sword energy away. That shouldn't be possible."

"That is why he's a freak. Just because we can't do it does not mean that he cant."

"That seems to be the legendary Nether Yin Gate, a devilish ability of the Imperial Nether Clan. How did Xiang Shaoyun learn that ability?"

"Yes, that's really the Nether Yin Gate. It's way too overpowered, right?"

All the disciples were stunned. They had witnessed many amazing battles, but nothing could top this battle. 

After moving Baili Yixiao's sword energy away, Xiang Shaoyun was about to continue going after Baili Yixiao when Devil Concubine and the Little Overlord charged him together.

"Pervert, die!" Devil Concubine roared as the Yin Yang Diagram wrapped around her halberd, turning her halberd into a grinder that could destroy anything in its path.

"Whoever you are, you will die for stealing my Xiang Clan's technique," shouted Xiang Chenxi. He swung his purple halberd, sending a destructive lightning attack forward. It was as though the god of thunder was attacking in a fury.

Two powerful attacks were pressing toward Xiang Shaoyun. How would he survive? 

At this point, if Xiang Shaoyun did not use his soul clone or the Nether Soul Domain, he would very likely be defeated. However, he wanted to win a victory fair and square. Those tricks were something he didn't want to use unless absolutely necessary.

"Bring it on. This is what I have been waiting for," said Xiang Shaoyun with a look of excitement. Next, the powers of lightning, wind, and flame erupted from him.

He was using a technique that was the combination of Lightning Calamity Fiery Star and Wind and Lightning. He had not perfected it, so he hadn't bothered naming the technique. And now, he was using these disciples to test his new technique, trying to learn more about the utilization of multiple powers at the same time.

Lightning and flame were basically powers of destruction, while the power of wind could enhance both of them. Three different elements were unleashed, wreaking even more chaos on the battlefield.

The three powers interweaved and rumbled on. If the Lonesoul Island wasn't protected by the power of Saints, it would have probably been destroyed in its entirety by these powers.

The surrounding disciples fled as far as they could. If the raging powers hit them, things would go bad for them.

Xiang Shaoyun was already a peak Emperor. If it wasn't for the fact that he couldn't form his soul foundation yet, he would have probably entered the Soul Foundation Realm immediately after utilizing the origin energies he had found in the coffin. The remaining energies had subsequently been pulled into his astral cosmos sea and had transformed into the primal inception energy. For now, Xiang Shaoyun did not intend to utilize the primal inception energy. He was saving it for Dugu Qiubai.

Even now, Dugu Qiubai was still watching silently. He disdained joining hands with others against Xiang Shaoyun, but the strength Xiang Shaoyun displayed had undoubtedly caught his attention. In fact, he now viewed Xiang Shaoyun as his rival, and he hoped for a fair fight. That was the arrogance he had as a genius cultivator.

After using the powers from three of his stars, Xiang Shaoyun entered a deadlock with Xiang Chenxi and Devil Concubine. Even so, just evenly matching two geniuses at the same time was proof of his strength. Baili Yixiao was about to concede defeat, but he decided to rejoin the battle after some hesitation.

I know this is not all you're capable of. Let me see just what your limits are, thought Baili Yixiao as he unleashed the Unrivaled Righteous Sword Technique yet again.

With that, three geniuses were attacking Xiang Shaoyun at the same time, and things were looking bleak for him. The longer the fight lasted, the more ferocious Devil Concubine became. Her Yin Yang Diagram seemed capable of influencing even the passage of time. She landed two hits on Xiang Shaoyun, cracking even the Goldplates on his body. His blood started flowing.

Xiang Chenxi also showed no quarter and repeatedly stabbed with his weapon. The two bloody holes on Xiang Shaoyun's calf were left by none other than him. As for the sword wounds on Xiang Shaoyun's body, those were naturally left by Baili Yixiao. It was all thanks to the strengthened body Xiang Shaoyun had gained from the Limit Stimulation Technique that he hadn't been instantly killed.

Of course, Xiang Shaoyun was also able to land some blows on his opponents as well. He had managed to kick Devil Concubine's shoulder, slash Xiang Chenxi's belly, and electrocute Baili Yixiao's entire body. One could say that even against these three opponents, Xiang Shaoyun wasn't taking a one-sided beating.

At this time, Xiang Shaoyun's head continued shining with the Light of Wisdom. With the auspicious-looking radiance above him, he seemed to have entered some sort of state. Enlightenments of the nine powers started flashing through his mind continuously. The profundity of gold could penetrate all defenses, the profundity of wood represented life and death, the profundity of water was boundless and unending, and so on.

Thoughts regarding the different profundities flashed past his mind, allowing him to once again get to know the truth of these powers. He realized that he seemed to have even more trump cards he could pull out.

Profundity of light!

Through the Light of Wisdom, he activated the profundity of light. Not even he knew why he was doing so. He was only acting on instinct. And as he activated the profundity of light, a blinding radiance flashed through the sky. At that moment, everyone felt like they had been frozen in time.

Devil Concubine, Xiang Chenxi, and Baili Yixiao felt the same as well. The unique power accompanying the power of light caused them to momentarily stop moving. 

In truth, time wasn't frozen. It was merely a misconception. The blinding flash had merely temporarily cleared their minds, giving them the impression that time had stopped. This was the unique effect created when the profundity of light was combined with the Light of Wisdom.

Xiang Shaoyun had stumbled upon this technique by pure luck, and it was enough for him to completely turn the tide of the battle. Taking advantage of the momentary distraction, he charged Devil Concubine, who was the nearest to him, and mercilessly unleashed the Dragonscale Arm at her.

He wasn't holding punches even though he was facing a woman, and he sent her flying away and coughing blood. If he wanted to kill her, he could have easily cut her head off with the Flux Finger Sword Technique. He then dashed toward Xiang Chenxi. 

At this point, Xiang Chenxi had already recovered, and he instantly entered a defensive stance, not giving Xiang Shaoyun a chance to harm him.

"What are you still waiting for, Money?" said Xiang Shaoyun as he swung his arm and sent a phantom shooting forward. The figure was none other than Money.

Xiang Chenxi was caught by complete surprise, and as a result, Money managed to bite on him.
