Chapter 385: Intense Battle with the Immortal Soul Stage Holy Man
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The 3 Nascent Soul Stage cultivators in the Intermediate Stage brought about immense pressure to the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
But Lin Feng was prepared. Although his original self wasn’t there, the Steel Tree Avatar brought the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
During the battle at Shazhou during the Sect-Opening Ceremony, Pang Jie, the Nascent Soul Stage cultivator in the Advanced stage who cultivated the Cosmic Form, had the Six Appearances Sword with him. Even so, he was unable to escape from the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
The Yu Clan and Aeolus Sect’s power were greatly hit as Yu Yiluan and the 3 Nascent Soul Stage cultivators were trapped by Lin Feng’s Two Elements of Creation Formation.
The situation was immediately reversed. The momentum was with the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
The head of the Yu Clan, Xuaming Holy Man Yu Xintao, was watching from one side. But now, he was unable to sit and watch anymore and revealed himself.
He watched Lin Feng and his Two Elements of Creation Formation, and was feeling a little fearful, “Just now, before the formation was activated, it was able to infuse itself with the Heavens and Earth without leaving any trace of it being around.”
Lin Feng looked at Yu Xintao indifferently. Although it was only his avatar present, he was fearless.
“Xuanming Holy Man, I have heard of you for a long time.” Lin Feng said.
Yu Xintao remained calm, “Master Lin, it seems like you have expected me here. You used your avatar to bring the formation here, are you liaising with your original self that’s not here?”
“I will not give you the chance to. The Nine Heavens Squall Formation does not bother about what is happening inside and it will continue to defend against the outside. Over here, I will kill your avatar and your disciples.”
Lin Feng laughed and lifted his finger to point at the Two Elements of Creation Formation, “Let’s cut the formalities and get into the real thing.”
“I agree, we should cut these formalities.” Yu Xintao said, “The Yu Family has relied heavily on Shi Tianyi while the Celestial Sect of Wonders has put everything on Shi Tianhao. The battle between us will have a victor.”
Lin Feng said, “You are wrong. There is never a winner or loser. Shi Tianhao is my disciple. My role is to guide him. The debt that some people have owed him must be repaid.”
Yu Xintao nodded his head, “Not bad, the Celestial Sect of Wonders killed 2 of my Nascent Soul Stage disciples. Today, you will pay the interest first.”
As he said, he raised his hand suddenly and his palm enlarged and covered the skies. It grabbed Xiao Budian up.
Lin Feng clasped his hands and conjured a spell, saying calmly, “After today, it will not just be the 2 Nascent Soul Stage cultivators already.”
“Two Elements of Creation Formation, open!”
“Six Forms of Creation and Destruction, Heaven and Earth Change, Rise!”
The formation flashed and it appeared above Xiao Budian in the next moment. It blocked the huge palm of Yu Xintao, as if the huge palm was destroyed when it came into contact with the Two Elements of Creation and Destruction.
Unlimited Purple Clouds and Central Wutu Divine Light appeared at the formation. Above the Purple Clouds, a boundless sky emerged. Below the yellow light, the ground became extremely thick.
The Heavens and Earth combined to become a single entity, infusing everyone within the boundary into the formation.
Even Yu Xintao was embroiled within. The vast sky was above while the thick soil was below. Mount Kunlun had disappeared and an entirely new world was left.
“Hearsay that this formation stabilized a few Middle Worlds that were about to collapse. It is indeed extraordinary.”
Yu Xintao looked at all this quietly. In a split second, the entire place was in turmoil. The entire world seemed to be twisted.
Lin Feng had already activated the power of the Heaven and Earth change. The defensive mana on Yu Xintao’s body was initially cold as ice, but it became extremely hot at this point. It was almost going to be converted into a ferocious flame.
Not only was the world in turmoil, the spiritual forms in this world was also twisting and changing.
Yu Xintao did not move and his eyes turned ice-blue. It was as if unlimited amounts of Xuanming Primordial Water were released
The ice-blue Xuanming Primordial Water quickly gathered and converted to a pure-black ice shield. It emanated an ancient aura, as if it existed for very long and could not be broken down.
It was also the Yu Clan’s strongest defensive abhijna in the Mantra of Xuanming, the Xuanming Magic Shield.
Previously, Yu Qianshan had once used this to resist Lin Feng’s Heaven and Earth Destroyer. It was fruitless as it was immediately crushed.
But the Xuanming Magic Shield that Yu Xintao was using was different from that. The Two Elements of Creation Formation was unable to destroy it and it successfully protected Yu Xintao.
However, this was very passive. Yu Xintao was like Pang Jie and the Six Appearances Sword previously, as he was stuck within the formation.
Yu Xintao laughed, “In his Nascent Soul Stage cultivation, Pang Jie cultivated the powerful abhijna of the Great Void Sect. He also had the Six Appearances Sword to protect himself. Even the Immortal Soul Stage cultivator of my generation could do nothing to him.”
“But he was not in the Immortal Soul Stage. Although his magic treasure had the original soul, he was not a true Immortal Soul Stage cultivator.
Yu Xintao’s eyes became pitch-black, “You can trap them, but not me.”
After saying, Yu Xintao’s body shape changed suddenly. His entire body unleashed an evil blue light, causing the gaps within the Two Elements of Creation and Destruction to project a sea of blue.
Within the blue light, Yu Xintao disappeared. A dark ice soul slowly surfaced from the blue light.
The size of the ice soul grew bigger and bigger. In the end, its diameter was almost a thousand feet. It existed amongst the blue light.
Unlimited cold air was released by the ice soul. The entire place was almost frozen.
With the black ice soul as the core, transparent snow started to extend rapidly in all directions. Everything in its path was frozen within the snow. From ten miles to hundred miles to a thousand miles, it kept on expanding.
Everything from grass to wood to flowers to trees, rivers, wind and cosmos were all frozen.
Yu Xintao wanted to use his powers to freeze the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
He wanted to freeze the entire area covered by the formation. In this way, the formation could not function properly.
“Avatar! This is the Immortal Soul Avatar!” As Lin Feng witnessed this scene, he nodded his head repeatedly, “This is the true powers of an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator.”
Realm of the Immortal Soul. This was the end goal for many cultivators. It represented immortality to them.
As the Nascent Soul Stage cultivators in the Advanced Stage cultivated the Cosmic Form, their Nascent Soul became extremely strong. It will then combine with the Cosmic Form and integrate the power of the rule of Taoism. If it was successful, they could cultivate the Immortal Soul Avatar.
A Nascent Soul Stage cultivator would not let his Nascent Soul surface easily. While the essence of the Nascent Soul could increase their powers, the Nascent Soul was very fragile. If anything happened, there would be huge trouble and risks.
But the Immortal Soul Avatar was different. It was the foundation of the strength of the Immortal Soul Stage cultivators. Only an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator who could reveal his Immortal Soul Avatar was considered capable and could unleash his most powerful battling powers.
The Immortal Soul Avatar was also the consolidation of an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator’s cultivation. It revealed the classic origins of an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator.
During the battle of the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation, Lin Feng had once witnessed many Immortal Soul Stage Elders revealing their Immortal Soul Avatar.
The Asura Holy Man, Huo Xiu, used the Asura Mantra to achieve the Immortal Soul Avatar. It was a lethal Asura Battle Spear. It was deathly and terrorized people since time immemorial.
The Supreme Radiance Swordmaster’s classic origins laid in the Supreme Radiance Sword Technique. His Immortal Soul Avatar did not have a proper entity. From its outer appearance, it looked like a streak of light that flashed in space. It was neither bright nor dark, making its movement unpredictable.
The Sun Radiance Swordmaster’s classic origins laid in the Sun Radiance Sword Technique. The Immortal Soul Avatar comprised boundless sword radiance, as if it was a flaming sun.
Right now in front of their eyes, the thousand feet black ice soul was obviously the Immortal Soul Avatar of Yu Xintao.
With the ice soul as the core and unleashing its powers continually, he wanted to destroy Lin Feng’s new world that was formed using the Two Elements of Creation and make a new ice-cold world.
Although the situation was critical, Lin Feng did not panic. He looked at the black ice soul and was deep in thought, “When I achieve the Immortal Soul, I wonder what my Immortal Soul Avatar looks like?”
As he thought, Lin Feng did not relax his grip. He used his hands to conjure up powerful spells and eventually his palms clasped.
“Six Forms of Creation and Destruction, Heaven and Earth Change, Rise!”
A huge pattern appeared in the sky and black and white intersected. As the two extremes met, the black and white pattern started to revolve.
As the pattern revolved, the world started to change its look. The spiritual energy continued to surge, as if winter passed and spring approached. Even if Yu Xintao exhibited his Immortal Soul Avatar, he could not prevent the approach of spring.
Countless new life sprung out and the strong life aura could not be repressed.
The black ice soul was still effecting its influence, as unlimited snow continued to expand in all directions. It destroyed life, but could not overcome the speed in which the Two Elements of Creation was creating life.
Although his avatar was a black ice soul, Yu Xintao’s feel of the external world was not subjected to any changes. He could tell that the white portion of the black and white pattern contained a greyish-white spiritual stone that was three inch long and one inch thick.
The greyish-white spiritual stone seemed to breed the universe. It was supplying tremendous power to the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
Whereas on the black portion, there was huge black volcanic rock. From within, a thin streak of black gas was released.
The spiritual energy from the formation was getting more and more concentrated. All of a sudden, the two extremes reversed. The huge amount of life power was converted to a deathly aura. The entire world was plunged into darkness.
The boundless deathly aura was converted to a thousand huge swords. Each of these swords’ tip was as big as a small mountain peak.
As they took shape, these black swords started to fly towards Yu Xintao’s ice soul ferociously.
