Chapter 1072 – Lightningarc Blade

Sword howls surged like a tide and resounded throughout the world!

It seemed to be able to pierce through metal and split rocks, and it pierced everyone’s eardrums to the point of faintly aching while their souls felt as if it was pricked by needles, causing an icy cold and horrifying aura to arise within them.

This was the power and influence of the sword!

Everyone was astounded and seemed to have never imagined that Chen Xi was actually able to possess an Immortal Artifact with such might.

“What treasure is that?”

“It probably possesses a might at the high-rank of the Darkspirit Grade!”

“It wouldn’t be a divine weapon handed down in the Liang Clan, right?”

The sounds of discussion resounded. Everyone was able to discern that purely based on the might of their immortal artifacts, the simple immortal sword in Chen Xi’s hand was actually on par with Yin Wanxun’s Soul Severing Mountainsmasher.

“That seems to be…” At the same time, bright light erupted from the distant Gu Yutang’s eyes as he seemed to have recognized something, yet he didn’t dare be sure for certain reasons. He seemed to be surprised and doubtful.

“Interesting, truly interesting!” The nearby Luo Zifeng’s gaze was deep and flickered endlessly while he stared at the immortal sword in Chen Xi’s hand, and he actually wasn’t willing to miss a single glance of it.

Clang!

A sword howl echoed. Chen Xi held the Talisman Armament in hand while revealing a fierce and murderous expression, and he was like an emperor of the sword as he slashed out with his sword. A blazing and vast strand of sword qi shot into the sky, and it seemed like a river of stars that crushed down from the sky.

Bang!

Sabre and sword collided and erupted with a myriad of fine blade qi and sword lights. It swept towards all directions and caused the entire training arena to fall into chaos.

“Little fellow, that immortal sword in your hand seems…” Yin Wanxun’s eyes revealed a ghastly light that carried a wisp of horror. He actually seemed to have recognized something from Chen Xi’s Talisman Armament, and he seemed to not dare believe it.

Swoosh!

Chen Xi slashed once more, and he didn’t give Yin Wanxun the chance to speak any nonsense.

This strike was entirely different from before. It carried the Laws of fire and water, and there was water within the flames on the blade. Both of these Laws merged, rubbed, and collided with each other, and they erupted with the phenomena of an ocean of flames and icy mist that illuminated the heavens and the earth and was a rather magnificent scene.

“Hmph! You’re actually able to merge two different Laws, your comprehension ability isn’t bad. Unfortunately, your strength is still too weak!” Yin Wanxun grunted coldly as he sensed the oppressive force that suffused this strand of sword qi, and he didn’t dare get distracted anymore. He immediately strode forward and drew his blade, and then suddenly twisted his wrist before chopping down with his sabre.

One could clearly notice that when this strike was executed, numerous mysterious and complicated talisman diagrams suddenly lit up on the body of the sabre, and every single one that lit up caused the might of the blade to rise explosively by a level.

Moreover, when the fifth talisman diagram was lit up, the entire blade seemed to have countless talisman markings circulating on it, and it actually emanated waving blue colored lightning that was dark blue, beautiful, dazzling, and resplendent.

“Amongst the nine levels of strength sealed within the Soul Severing Mountainsmasher, he has already utilized five levels. In this way, it would seem like Yin Wanxun didn’t underestimate his opponent.” Luo Zifeng judged in a light voice.

At the same time, Chen Xi’s eyes narrowed as well. He wasn’t frightened by his opponent’s imposing aura, but he’d clearly sensed a slightly familiar aura from Yin Wanxun’s sabre.

It was the aura of a Divine Talisman!

If he wasn’t wrong, then Yin Wanxun’s sabre was obviously an existence similar to a Talisman Armament, and the reason felt it was similar was because Chen Xi was clearly aware that it wasn’t a true Talisman Armament because the Divine Talisman sealed within it was incomplete while the method of refining it was incorrect.

The Darklightning Divine Talisman? Unfortunately, the method of refinement is too inferior… After he saw through the profundity of this sabre with a single glance, Chen Xi felt relaxed in his heart and threw all of this to the back of his head.

Yin Wanxun was a disciple of the Yin Clan, whereas his ancestor of the Dark Emperor Yuan Xun, so they naturally knew how to refine the Darklightning Divine Talisman. Thus, there was nothing to be surprised about.

All of these took a long time to describe, yet it actually occurred in an instant.

In the next moment, both of them collided once more. The sword qi that was like a sea of flames and icy mist collided with the blade light, and the sound of the explosion shook the world while the aftershock was like a violent storm that howled through the heavens and the earth.

Chen Xi wasn’t surprised at all that his sword strike was resisted, and he slashed down once more. This sword strike was once again different from before, and it contained the Laws of the Grand Daos of water, fire, and metal.

As soon as it was executed, water and fire merged while carrying a peerlessly fierce and sharp golden light!

Three Laws merged together? Yin Wanxun’s eyes focused. He was aware a long time ago that the kid at the Heavenly Immortal Realm before him had grasped seven types of Laws of the Grand Dao. Yet he never imagined that a single strike from Chen Xi would actually contain the energy of three Laws at the same time!

Utilizing three types of Laws at once and not utilizing them separately was so difficult that it wasn’t something a cultivation at the Heavenly Immortal Realm could accomplish. But it just so happened that such a situation appeared before his eyes, so how could Yin Wanxun not be shocked?

Even the nearby spectators were horrified by this scene because the energy of the Laws complied with the Heaven Dao, and they were the most difficult to utilize. Some Heavenly Immortal Realm experts that possessed extremely formidable natural talents might be able to grasp the energy of three or more Laws of the Grand Dao. However, due to the limitations of their cultivations, they were at most capable of executing the energy of only two Laws at once. 

Only Mysterious Immortal Realm experts were capable of executing three Laws at once.

But now, Chen Xi had actually executed three types of Laws with a cultivation at the intermediate-stage of the Heavenly Immortal Realm, so this was extremely astounding!

“Lightning Execution!” On the arena, even though Yin Wanxun was surprised, his movements didn’t slow down in the slightest. His sabre tore through the sky while another mysterious and profound talisman diagram lit up on the sabre, causing the 1.3m long pitch black sabre to instantly become covered with a violent and dark blue thunderstorm. When looked at from afar, it seemed like the source of all thunder, and it caused one’s scalp to go numb.

Bang!

The sabre howl was like the rumble of thunder, and it flashed through the clear sky! This strike was like a tribulation lightning of judgment that descended from the Heaven Dao, and it intended to crush all evil!

Bang! Bang! Bang!

The sword qi and blade light collided once more and resisted each other violently. It was like two enormous stars were fighting to the death, and they collided violently, causing explosions that made everyone feel their vital blood roil while their souls were on the verge of exploding.

In the end, both of them collapsed inch by inch and transformed into a rain of light that covered the sky before vanishing without a trace.

“How terrifying!”

“An ordinary expert at the initial-stage of the Mysterious Immortal Realm would probably find this strike impossible to resist, right?”

“How formidable! Chen Xi really as difficult to deal with as the rumors say. He’s only at the intermediate-stage of the Heavenly Immortal Realm! This is simply unbelievable!”

Everyone was astounded, and they only dared to exclaim with shock at this moment while the gazes they shot at Chen Xi’s tall figure was filled with a wisp of shock.

“If you only have this bit of ability, then you’ll die without a doubt!” Yin Wanxun’s gaze was slightly gloomy while his expression became even more cruel.

Being tangled with a fellow at the intermediate-stage of the Heavenly Immortal Realm for so long caused him to feel humiliated, and this caused the killing intent in his heart to grow even further. He’d decided that no matter what happened, he would cripple this kid today, otherwise, if this kid was allowed to grow, he would surely become a great disaster!

As he spoke, he didn’t wait for Chen Xi to make a move before seizing the initiative to attack.

Stomp!

He stepped through the sky like he was moving on flat ground, and it shook the surrounding space to the point violent ripples arose. On the other hand, Yin Wanxun had already flashed over like a hawk while his hands held onto the sabre like he was swinging a blade capable of slashing through the sky.

Om! Om!

Strands of violent fluctuations surged out from his body and poured into the blade, causing talisman markings to surge on the pitch black sabre in his hand, and then strings of dense talisman markings flew out. Everyone was able to clearly see that the seventh talisman marking diagram had suddenly lit up, and it was like a dazzling sun that erupted with divine brilliance.

Yin Wanxun’s aura became even heavier along with this, yet his countenance turned slightly pale. Obviously, the strength exhausted by this strike was slightly strenuous to him.

“Lightningarc Blade!” Suddenly, Yin Wanxun shouted explosively with a voice that was like a tiger howl that shook the surroundings, and the strike that he was accumulating force for a long time for suddenly slashed down.

This strike’s impetus was violent and vast to the limit, and it perfectly merged the Laws of the Grand Daos of lightning and water within this strike. As soon as it appeared, it crushed out a narrow, long, and horrifying rift in space.

Space was truly slashed apart here, and it meant that the Spatial Laws of the Immortal Dimension’s Martial Emperor Domain were unable to restrain the might of this strike!

Of course, it was because the restrictions on this arena were slightly weak. After all, it was an arena on the fifth level, and it was only suitable for experts at the initial-stage of the Mysterious Immortal Realm to compete on.

But even then, it was sufficient to display how terrifying and overbearing Yin Wanxun’s attack was.

In an instant, the experts spectating in the surroundings were horrified by the imposing aura of this strike, and their figures uncontrollably dodged backwards in unison. Some people with slightly weaker cultivations even turned ghastly pale from their shock while their entire bodies trembled.

This strike was too violent and unrestrained!

“This kid from the Yin Clan is capable of charging into the top hundred of the Continental Ascensio Rankings by relying solely on this strike.” In the extreme distance, Gu Yutang’s expression was serious as he spoke.

Luo Zifeng deeply agreed and frowned as he said, “I’m only worried that Chen Xi might not be able to resist it. If he’s injured, then it would heavily injure his soul and might even damage his natural talent, causing him to be reduced to a mediocre figure.”

Gu Yutang’s mouth opened and was about to say something, yet his gaze suddenly erupted with a wisp of divine light. His gaze locked onto the distant training arena, and his expression that had been composed since the beginning actually revealed a wisp of shock that was spreading throughout his face.

    …

The violent edge of Yin Wanxun’s sabre tore through the sky, and the fierce gale it emanated caused Chen Xi’s clothes to flutter along with his dense long hair. The might of this violent strike even caused the skin on his entire body to faintly ache.

However, there wasn’t any fear on his face, and his gaze grew even brighter as if there was a sea of lava blazing within them.

It was his battle intent boiling!

This strike had completely lit up the battle intent in his heart while the flames of rage that had accumulated in the bottom of his heart from Liang Zhen and Liang Liang’s heavy injury erupted completely at this moment.

Bang!

His entire body emanated boundless light while a copious and irresistible vital energy shot into the sky. It was like a blazing sun intended to soar into the sky and illuminate the world.

He held up the Talisman Armament, spun his wrist, and slashed down!

Three simple movements were carried out in one smooth motion like flowing water, and it seemed otherworldly.

Om!

Sword howls were like a torrent that surged and rumbled through the heavens and the earth. At the same time, a wisp of wavy and gorgeous sword qi condensed in the sword. As soon as it appeared, it was suffused with a myriad of blazing talisman markings, and it illuminated the world.

This sword strike was sometimes extremely verdant, sometimes blazing like fire, sometimes raging like the ocean, and sometimes peerlessly sharp and dazzling! It contained the Laws of four Grand Daos, and it exceeded the imagination of all.

At the instant this sword strike soared through the sky, peerless sword qi actually minced apart the surrounding airflow and caused the heavens and the earth to be cast into a shade!

Swish!

Under the astounded and dazed gazes of all the spectators, this sword qi actually easily slashed apart Yin Wanxun’s blade light into two. It was like it was tearing apart a piece of cloth, and it was so fierce, swift, and easy.
