The Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart was full of mysteries, and right now Yang Qi was only privy to a tiny, tiny fraction of them. However, he had recently come to understand how to absorb, convert, and re-release power. As for the many other mysteries it contained, he would have to wait until he reached godly ascension for that.
In any case, the power conversion trick definitely put him in a position to deal with these six experts.
By this point, the heavenly tribulation was long gone.
Yang Qi had completely devoured it and turned it into magical laws which coursed through his body, creating a preheaven godly path. This was the Chaos God level. It was like the beginnings of primordial chaos, the start of the universe itself. Yang Qi could now form primordial chaos magical laws.
They were magical laws that could connect to the energy of the dao of heaven that existed in ancient primordial chaos. In turn, being able to unite with the dao of heaven made it possible for him to sense the god world, and the Deathless Heavenly Stairway, of course.
Next came the nine stairs, those of Valor, Wisdom, Endurance, and Fearlessness and the like. Each was harder to climb than the previous, and those who reached the end would become like the legion of gods. Those who failed would remain in the world of mortals, unable to transcend the river of time and pierce through the past and the future.
Yang Qi suddenly erupted with killing intent as he viciously attacked his six opponents. With his left hand he launched the Hand of the One God, and with the right, King Heaven-Devourer’s Fist. He combined their functions and added in Fateless power. Although his opponents didn’t have to worry about the tribulation anymore, Yang Qi was vastly stronger than before. It was like he had turned from one person into ten thousand. Furthermore, his opponents were scrambling so desperately to defend themselves that they couldn’t join forces.
Bam. Bam. Bam!
He landed a blow on all six opponents, and whatever power they and their beast king clones used to defend themselves, he would suck into the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart and add to his collection there.
As he locked down the power, it became a blood-colored taiji symbol, spinning endlessly.
In turn, that taiji symbol affected the spatial power in the chart and began unlocking certain sealing marks that Yang Qi hadn’t even been aware existed. All of a sudden, he could see fragmented images of a scene from ancient times.
He saw seventy-two mighty monarchs waging war on the legion of gods in the god world. Godrelics shattered left and right, and gods fell in death. However, the gods were also united as they fought viciously against the seventy-two brethren. The seventy-two brethren managed to evade each blow, yet Yang Qi could see all of those magical abilities in his mind's eye, and his God Legion Seal gobbled them up.
Yang Qi was reaching a peak level of power.
At the same time, his immortal-slaying clone was experiencing a dramatic rise in his cultivation base. He was also able to witness the battle between the seventy-two brethren and the legion of gods, and power from the monarch chart was flowing into him.
The clone blurred into action and headed deep into the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, where he settled down into a meditative trance. Yang Qi could see that his cultivation base was rising rapidly, and his fleshly body was being re-formed. From the look of it, when he emerged from his trance he would be roughly on the same level as Grand Emperor Ragefire Broilheaven.
Yang Qi wasn’t sure of the full ramifications of this new development, but he did know that as he became more proficient in the use of the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, it was making it easier to deal with these six opponents. Without the chart, he would never have come out on top in this conflict.
His hands blurred as he launched attack after attack, each of which forced the Four Emperors of the Heavenly Court, Eldest Brother Secundus, and Leaf Dao-Denier back across the battlefield.
In fact, the four suzerains of hell and Patriarch Annalist hadn’t even had to make a move so far, and were just looking on in shock. At a certain point, they flew out of the Heaven-Dao Operation God-Temple to set up a spell formation. Yang Qi had given Patriarch Annalist a god item from the Aeonic God Temple, something called the God-Sealing Command Banner. Once it was set up, not even the ancient gods would be able to escape from it. The suzerains of hell helped to power it, along with the Army of Radiance and Light, and the temple was soon completely locked down, making it impossible for anyone to get in or out of it.
‘Yang Qi is so strong!’ thought Patriarch Annalist. ‘He’s fighting seventeen opponents who are all on the level of Grand Emperors. His cultivation base is like that of a god! Even if this fight ends in a draw, he would still fully deserve to be the league-lord. Going forward, the Dao Defense League is definitely going to be the top alliance, with full command of universal fortune. The future world, the Primeval Age, the Demon League… none of them will be able to stand up to the alliance!’
The four suzerains of hell were thinking similar thoughts as they looked on and shivered. They were now happier than ever that they hadn’t betrayed Yang Qi. From what they could tell, even if they had joined the opposing force, making it twenty-one strong, they would still have ended up dead at Yang Qi’s hands.
Right now, the six experts and their twelve beast king clones weren’t even leaving a scratch on Yang Qi when they attacked him. Their power was all being sucked into the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart without even touching him.
The suzerains were now truly loyal to him in their hearts and weren’t willing to even entertain thoughts of betraying him. Of course, monsters were fickle, so if some stronger person came along that could crush Yang Qi, they would obviously change loyalties to that person.
For that reason, Yang Qi would willingly make use of them, but never trust them.
Eldest Brother Secundus had already resorted to a whole host of consummate techniques, but none of them did anything to Yang Qi. His attacks disappeared like a statue of an ox tossed into the sea. At a certain point, he shouted, “This is bad! With him using the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, we’ll never really be able to hurt him. Retreat! We can’t fight him now!”
Of the thirty-six stratagems of war, retreat was often the best option.
Eldest Brother Secundus shot up into the air, heading toward the top of the Heaven-Dao Operation God-Temple. However, an enormous banner appeared as he approached, pulsing with the power of the Army of Radiance and Light, the four suzerains, and Patriarch Annalist. The banner wrapped around Eldest Brother Secundus and flung him back down, and in that moment he realized that he was trapped. It was going to be difficult to escape death.
Mind racing, Eldest Brother Secundus suddenly came up with a vicious plan, which he relayed to the others via divine sense. “We have to get out of here. Let’s combine our beast king clones and use the resulting true energy to break open the spell formation. That’s our only hope of escaping.”
Meanwhile, Yang Qi began singing the Eternal Heavenly Aria, causing numerous halos to appear that blessed himself and damned his opponents, causing their energy arts to weaken and their power to slowly drain.
“Four Emperors of the Heavenly Court! It’s time for you to die!” Yang Qi wasn’t about to show any mercy. As the Eternal Heavenly Aria weakened his opponents, he summoned his Freedom Wings and the Infernal Deity Spear. Now that he was a Chaos God, the spear looked different from before. It was made from the infinitude of hells, and as soon as it was out in the open, the Heaven-Dao Operation God-Temple transformed into a hell of hells, an abyss of pain, darkness, and brutality.
Not even the legion of gods would want to go into a place like that.
In the blink of an eye, his spear was right in front of Grand Emperor Ragefire Broilheaven. The Grand Emperor was currently clad in something called the Armor of the Rage God, but all it took was a wave of Yang Qi’s hand to strip it off of him. Then the spear stabbed out three times to prevent the other three emperors from interfering before piercing right into Grand Emperor Ragefire Broilheaven’s forehead.
Considering the spear contained the quintessence of numerous hells, there was no way anyone could possibly block its path.
Grand Emperor Ragefire Broilheaven bellowed in rage. “Will of the Rage God, come forth! Rage of Heaven-Gods!”
At that moment, the śarīra of the Rage God emerged from his forehead.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
