Yang Qi attacked with a combination of energy arts that he had spent a lot of time working on. The Seventy-Two Monarchs Energy Art, the Strength of the Hell-Crushing Godmammoth, and the Secret-Ensconcing All-World Anything-Everything Fundamental-Law Magic. All of that, boosted by the godpower of the Great Necropolis, could create a host of palm strikes that combined strength and softness, and could seize the good fortune of heaven and earth.
The people from the Immortal House of Supreme Preeminence and the Amoghasiddhi Buddhist Sect were eyeing him like tigers eyed prey, and were clearly waiting to see if he and the burly man from the Martial Tyrant Cadre would end up hurting each other, whereupon they could swoop in to benefit. Of course, there was no way Yang Qi was going to let on to his true plan. So he simply attacked the burly man with full, deadly force.
Pop. Pop. Pop. Pop.
His palm struck over and over again, provoking an expression of complete shock from the burly man, who suddenly realized that the Martial-God Hegemon-King Heaven-Propping Pillar behind him was starting to crack and crumble.
He had every reason to be shocked. After having successfully completed the cultivation of that pillar, he should have been able to conquer every obstacle, and be impossible to defeat. But Yang Qi was striking blows that seemed capable of destabilizing the universe and shaking the god world. Not only did the burly man not have any time to breathe, but he was actually starting to cough up blood.
Yang Qi shattered the pillar and unleashed a bevy of moves that locked down east, west, south and north.
By that point, the man from the Martial Tyrant Cadre realized how strong Yang Qi was, and didn’t dare to continue fighting him. Instead, he fell back.
However, even as he did so, a vortex sprang up right behind him and he fell into it with a muffled shriek. Afterward, silence reigned.
The man had fallen for Yang Qi’s trick.
The truth was that if the man had truly tried, he could have defended himself against Yang Qi’s onslaught. All he had to do was hold on long enough, and eventually start fighting back. Perhaps, in the very end, Yang Qi might have secured victory, but it would likely have taken many days of back and forth. Furthermore, it would have ended with both of them being wounded. Instead, Yang Qi had attacked so relentlessly that the man didn’t dare to fight back, and instead decided to back down. Then Yang Qi was able to trick him into falling into the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart.
Unfortunately, that meant that the secret of the chart had now been laid bare to the arhat from the Amoghasiddhi Buddhist Sect and the daoist priest from the Immortal House of Supreme Preeminence.
Seeing that the expert from the Martial Tyrant Cadre had been captured in one move, the arhat and the daoist priest immediately joined forces, unleashing two powerful attacks.
Yang Qi thrust his palms out to meet them and felt a massive force coursing through him, so intense that it felt like he might shatter.
There was no doubt that these two experts were not to be taken lightly, and commanded consummate techniques. Although he might be able to beat them in a fight, it definitely wouldn’t be easy. And things were worse, considering that they had now joined forces.
Another thing Yang Qi was worried about was the possibility of more people showing up from the Martial Tyrant Cadre. They were a superpower sect with Terrifying experts, and if a person like that came, the situation would turn very dangerous.
At that moment, he made a decision. Summoning a vortex, he leaped toward it.
“See you again next time!” he said, and then he was gone. The arhat and the daoist priest leaped forward, but were too late. The two of them exchanged surprised glances.
“If I'm not mistaken,” the daoist priest said, “I’d say he must have the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. Apparently, he’s not only the successor of King Immortal-Slayer, but also an Inheritor of the Great Necropolis! We have to go back and report this to our sects.”
“Let’s go!” the arhat said. With that, he summoned a halo of buddhist light that spread out to surround him. Then he vanished. Obviously, it was a high-level magic from a buddhist school. As for the daoist priest, he also turned and vanished.
Meanwhile, Yang Qi was in the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, where he was back to fighting the burly man from the Martial Tyrant Cadre.
At a certain point, Yang Qi lashed out and hit him on the back with a sealing mark. Even as the man was coughing up blood, the immortal-slaying clone leaped in to crush him with the powers of the Great Necropolis and the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. Then the God Legion Seal appeared.
At that point, the burly man couldn't do anything. Yang Qi quickly reached into his sea of energy and pulled out a violently explosive true energy seed that resembled an enormous pillar. It pulsed with the energy of the martial path and was apparently something left behind by a god of martial arts.
Yang Qi grabbed it and assimilated it, adding yet another godly-class energy art to his repertoire, the Martial-God Hegemon-King Heaven-Propping Pillar.
“Who exactly are you?” the burly man howled. “And why are you so set on fighting the Martial Tyrant Cadre? My sect won’t let you get away with this!”
Yang Qi didn’t reply. Instead, he inserted several devil embryos into the burly man and hit him with the Devil-God Seal. Next, hundreds of thousands of god formations appeared, which poured vital energy into the man, forcibly advancing his energy arts. However, all advancement was absorbed by the devil embryos, and was then passed on to Yang Qi. Yang Qi hadn’t even said a word to him, but had directly turned him into a thrall.
The man’s cultivation base was far more terrifying than Profound Valor’s, to the point where Yang Qi almost couldn’t handle the energy that was flowing into him.
Meanwhile, the sun-like godhood he had taken earlier was shining brilliantly within the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. Flying up, Yang Qi chopped at it with a knifehand, cutting it into two parts. One part was thrown into his Heaven and Earth Furnace to boost his power and energy arts, and the other was tossed into the Engine of the One God.
The imperial-heaven pre-beginning systems immediately roared with more life than ever.
Sitting down cross-legged, he circulated his energy arts and watched his power index began rising with explosive speed. From one thousand, it jumped to two thousand, then two thousand five hundred, then finally reached three thousand.
In the shortest of moments, he became like someone from one of the superpower sects.
Yang Qi was now completely confident in being able to crush Empress Joyflower. The only possible reason he might not stand a chance was if she had broken through to Terrifying will convergence.
Thanks to the imperial-heaven pre-beginning systems, the will of the Great Necropolis within him was constantly being worn down. Of course, it was simultaneously building up, but all that meant was that his cultivation speed was rapidly increasing.
For now, it seemed like it wouldn’t be a major challenge to reach Terrifying will.
Of course, he needed a lot of godhood to sustain it all and keep the imperial-heaven pre-beginning systems going. Furthermore, if he didn’t keep adding godhood, then the will of the Great Necropolis would continue growing within him, causing problems for his nascent divinity.
If his nascent divinity were to be ejected from his sea of consciousness, he wouldn’t be himself anymore.
Obviously, the problem of how he was going to get more godhood was extremely relevant.
Yang Qi now had a power index of three thousand and a will convergence at the peak of the Destabilizing level. As of now, he didn’t need to rely on any magical treasures at all to dominate virtually any enemy.
Once he could fully subdue the will of the Great Necropolis, establish his own powerful organization, and command universal fortune, he would reach the Terrifying level and have even less to fear.
Leaving the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, he once again began searching through the depths of the Great Necropolis, and this time, no experts appeared to block his path.
Unfortunately, he didn’t see any godhood either.
However, he eventually caught sight of an enormous world that radiated an air of buddhism, and shone with brilliant golden light. It was like an ancient buddhist temple that echoed with the weeping of ghosts and wailing of gods, and in its depths were stone statues covered with dust.
Yang Qi immediately realized that this was the Cave Temple of the Vajra Māyādevī, built by some ancient buddhist school from the god world. This was where Leaf Dao-Denier had come to acquire a seed of the Secret-Ensconcing All-World Anything-Everything Fundamental-Law Magic, which was second only to the Strength of the Hell-Crushing Godmammoth.
Without hesitation, Yang Qi entered the temple.
As soon as his feet touched the ground, he felt a sense of incredible pressure. Jumping into the air, he tried to fly, but failed, which was quite a surprise considering how strong he was.
Obviously, this buddhist temple contained elements of the god world in it.
It was said in legend that only gods were capable of flying in the god world.
Yang Qi had a virtual god world in his Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, and even there, Godmyths were incapable of flying. Only Grand Emperor cultivators could do so.
Arrangements like that were very beneficial for cultivation.
It would be like a situation in which an ordinary person carried heavy weights on their shoulders. Later, upon removing the weights, they would achieve great boosts to agility and speed.
Here, in the cave temple of the Vajra Māyādevī, there was an immense pressure that made it seem like the true god world.
Yang Qi unleashed a stream of sword energy, but it only traveled about thirty meters before vanishing. That sword energy would have been enough to slice a thirty-third ranked immortal world apart, but here it couldn’t even leave a scratch on the stone floor.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
