The greatest advantage of swallowing the Monkey King’s shedding was that Yeon-woo could use the Five Elements properly.
The Five Elements harnessed the power of nature.
He could now use the power of nature without having to use Bian as the medium.
The greater his magic power, the greater the control over nature he would have.
He would be able to cause natural disasters.
If this was combined with his skills and powers, what would be the result?
* * *
A black-red trajectory split through the air.
It had happened so fast that the green-haired Astraeus didn’t have time to react.
No, to be exact, she hadn’t even been able to read the attack. She felt something flash, but she just thought it was an ordinary mortal like the players of Dis Pluto.
But after seeing the power within it, she belatedly realized that it wasn’t something she could ignore.
The holy power of multiple gods from the heavenly world who didn’t belong in Tartarus.
More than anything, she could feel the strength that any supernaturalist at her level would hate.
The Great Sage!
Why was that crazy bastard’s power here?!
It was too late by the time Astraeus tried to react to the power.
The trajectory of the black-red power pierced through her divine artifact, ‘Deneb.’ It was a barrier that could block most attacks around her, but the piece of the Ruyi Bang crushed through it and soared high up into the sky.
Deneb exploded, its pieces scattering. The monsters summoned from the darkness through Deneb were confused. The Channeling that had pulled them there was disconnected.
The attacks didn’t stop there.
[Wave of Fire – Simmering Spark]
[Heaven Bracket – Lightning Strike]
The Wave of Fire wasn’t a single explosion. The sparks that it scattered caused second and third explosions and destroyed everything in their path.
If the intense lightning of Heaven Bracket could be added onto it?
It would be a disaster.
Hundreds of fire lightning bolts came pouring down onto the holy territory.
Tartarus was always filled with darkness, but in this moment, with the lightning crashing down, it was shining brilliantly. The explosions and heat that followed swept the monsters away.
[Villain – Expel]
The fire and lightning rain included Vigrid’s option.
The fire always fell precisely on the designated enemies while Yeon-woo used Time Difference.
Monsters melted in the fire.
Without the guidance of Astraeus through Deneb, they were easy prey.
Moreover, when enemies died, a curse spread from them. The monsters who were designated as targets experienced debuffs because they were cursed.
Other fighting powers like Hogubyeolseong were used at the same time, and as they combined with each other, the damage was exponentially increased.
The number of dead monsters increased like how snow stuck to snow to become bigger.
[Agares laughs maniacally.]
[Vimalacitra compliments the scene you’ve created.]
[Vimalacitra expresses goodwill towards you and replaces the power he gave you with a stronger one.]
[The power ‘Black Gubitara’ has been created.]
Summary: An power that a demon of ‘Unaffiliated’ presented to you.
As an Asura whose only mission is to fight, Vimalacitra never let go of his sword even after becoming the king of kings to exceed his royal position and become emperor.
While on a short break, looking down into the lower world, he was inspired by you.
He threw away his affiliation with the Jie Sect, discarded his position as the king of kings, and began to live as a nomad once again.
Because of this, all gods and demons are afraid that the cause of their terror is roaming freely again.
As a gift to you, who helped him rediscover his original resolution, he has gifted an power that he has never even given to his apostles.
*Where Blood Flowers Bloom
When attacking enemies spread across a large area, there is a 35% chance to plant flowers of blood. Blood flowers gnaw at the life and soul of the enemy and damage by 30 per second. Damage during this time cannot be recovered, and the user will be healed 1% with every blood flower that is planted.
*King of Asura
To your designated opponents, you will forcefully have the upper hand. Your opponent will bend down from fear, and your attack power will continue to increase with every strike. Every 15 successive hits, your destructive power will increase tenfold.
*Wise Man’s Eyes
While the power is activated, Vimalacitra’s eyes will be brought down. With the knowledge of the demon who’s had centuries of experience, you will gain insight into how to use it during battle.
The Black Gubitara that Vimalacitra gave him could work in harmony with Vigrid.
It debuffed enemies in a wide range and buffed him respectively.
The recovery of his magic power would scale with the number of enemies.
Yeon-woo liked the phrase “gnaw at the life and soul” very much.
Depending on how it was used, it would make him somewhat of a divine being.
Since he might need to fight with divine beings in the future, this would be a good weapon for him.
Additionally, the third option 〈Wise Man’s Eyes〉 could be a good mark for Yeon-woo, who needed many angles of attack.
It was like Vimalacitra had made this power specifically for Yeon-woo.
All the monsters were covered by red blood flowers after being swept away by the lightning of fire and were swimming in pain.
A consecutive attack of ‘Dragon Killer→Flame Wheel→Wave of Fire→Lightning Strike→Factor Conduction→Black Gubitara.’
Yeon-woo felt all his health and magic power leave him, but he would be able to regain his strength once his body absorbed the monsters that would soon die.
Furthermore, the barrage of attacks didn’t stop there.
「Factors. For. The. Enemies. Who’ll. Die」
Inferno Sights opened in the middle of the air, and Boo appeared with a huge book of law.
[Hundun sends his blessing.]
[power ‘Faceless Law’ is activated. The power of the Emerald Tablet is combined with it.]
[The first page ‘How to Operate Marionettes’ has opened.]
The knowledge that he’d absorbed from the magicians of Necropolis was helping him find his way towards the Emerald Tablet.
He still mostly used the Faceless Law that Hundun gave Yeon-woo, but it was a vast improvement.
The book of law spun around as it opened to the first page.
Black fog settled down on the ground. Within it, there were tons of souls from inside the Despair of the Black King.
The souls entered the bodies of the dead monsters. The corpses began to move.
On Boo’s command, each of the corpses arose like dolls.
The beings with faint eyes ran at the monsters nearest to them.
The monsters that had been tied to the battlefield from the blood flowers fell over from the marionettes that ran at them.
It had seemed like the holy territory was going to be invaded at any moment, but the monsters all fell to the ground. The dead souls were bound to the Despair of the Black King and added to Boo’s power.
The Bone Dragon had appeared in the sky and was spewing Poison Breath.
[Cernunnos’s Factor is being given.]
[A holy soul is awakening.]
The blue spirit, Rebecca, emanated a light and split through the air in the form of a sharp breeze.
Shanon and Hanryeong used their signature skills in combination with the Factors of the many gods of war and brought down the monsters at a quick pace.
Soon, the holy territory was covered with Yeon-woo’s power.
No, it was covered with the power of the Black King.
All war and death were there.
[Agares slaps his knees at your accomplishment.]
[Nergal smiles with satisfaction at the countless deaths.]
[The gods of death chuckle.]
[The demons of war begin to judge you.]
[You are currently being evaluated. Depending on the results, you may be able to receive various benefits and Factors.]
[The gods of death compliment you.]
[The demons of death wonder if they have any stronger powers.]
[There is currently a discussion about you. Depending on the results, your level will be decided.]
Yeon-woo remembered a conversation he had with the Martial King looking at the unbelievable scene he had created.
-What’s the difference between a “king” and normal players?
At the time, Yeon-woo didn’t know how he was supposed to catch up to the Martial King and asked him this question.
He hadn’t expected a fancy answer.
The Martial King always answered with “by being strong” or “doing your best” whenever he was asked questions like this. For Yeon-woo, who didn’t have the talent, the Martial King was beyond reach.
-By becoming a natural disaster.
He was saying to become as powerful as a typhoon, earthquake, or volcano—something that couldn’t be stopped by man.
‘In a way….. this is a natural disaster.’
Yeon-woo thought what he created could be described as the “disaster” that the Martial King had spoken about.
He was still extremely lacking compared to the Martial King, who blew away half a city with just one punch, but Yeon-woo knew that he was now half a natural disaster with this.
He was finally one step closer to reaching the position of the Nine Kings.
The Ruyi Bang that reached the sky returned into his hand.
Vigrid, black, and the Ruyi Bang, white, were trembling. It almost looked glorious as the two opposing colors coalesced.
Yeon-woo’s eyes met Hades’s, who was looking down from far up above.
The always cynical Hades slightly nodded at Yeon-woo and resumed swinging his swords at the Titans.
The space seemed to shake, and five of the Titans were blown away and were lodged into a mountain far away.
Astraeus, who had lost her divine artifact Deneb and her summoned creatures, shouted in fury.
She dashed at him with a murderous aura.
The other Titans had swallowed the light of the dead Kronos and turned into Giant gods. On the other hand, Astraeus considered it foolish to let her body become so dense and had collected Kronos’s light into Deneb. All the summoned creatures were from Kronos.
The fact that it had cracked meant that it lost all her power. She didn’t know how she would be treated by her siblings, so she was furious.
She wanted to kill Yeon-woo using any means possible.
Yeon-woo reignited his magic power and gripped Vigrid and the Ruyi Bang, which were still combined as a long-spear. The divine being was flying towards his direction.
It was near impossible to fight against her, but….. since there was no way to escape, he had to face her head-on.
The problem was…..
‘I don’t think I’ll lose.’
Strangely, he was very confident.
Was his ego inflated because of the disasters he had caused?
But that didn’t exactly seem to be it either.
[A message from Agares has arrived.]
[Message: Hmph! I see those losers in the land of death with their heads in the ground are trying to touch what’s mine.]
[A message from Agares has arrived.]
[Message: Accept me! Let me in! Then I’ll help you smack the face of that loser. How’s that? I don’t think it’s a bad offer for you.]
Thinking back, the lower-level divine being named Ray he met when he first arrived in Tartarus introduced himself as the captain of Dis Pluto.
However, at the time, Yeon-woo thought he was weaker than what he expected.
A divine level was something that neither the Martial King nor the Summer Queen had been able to reach. Of course it would seem impossible Yeon-woo. He thought divine beings like Hermes, Athena, and Agares were out of his reach. No, when he first fell into Tartarus, the Titan named Perses was as strong as them.
But Ray definitely wasn’t above the Martial King.
He exuded the same aura as the Nine Kings, but he couldn’t touch the coattails of the Martial King or the Summer Queen.
He knew that not all divine beings were the same, but he wondered how they could be weaker than mortals.
Astraeus was like that.
Without her artifact, she seemed equally as powerful as Ray or maybe a bit stronger.
Right now, about 900 gods and demons were connected with Yeon-woo through the Channeling.
He chose Agares’s powers out of all of them. His will to fight simmered over, and a beast-like personality took over.
[Black Gubitara – Wise Man’s Eyes]
He pulled down Vimalacitra’s insight on top of it. The world he saw through Draconic Eyes and Fiery Golden Eyes turned into a world of black and white.
Taking a step into the new world, he powerfully shot forward the Ruyi Bang in his hand.
Vigrid, attached to the end of it and exploded black Aura, and black flames erupted around him.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
