Chapter 590: Mount Shu Is Finally Here!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Nothing moved in the void, only reverberations from a bell…
Following the sound, once could trace the source back to Mount Yujing. It was not much of a bell compared to Lin Feng’s Bell of Destiny, but a big bell nonetheless.
The bell felt hollow and light. Its appearance translucent, like layers of mist or vapour glued together to form this odd-looking structure.
Along its exterior, two streaks of white and black ran down each side, looking like the symbols of yin and yang.
This was truly a magic treasure, the counterpart to the Formation Bursting Drum, the Void Yin-Yang Clock!
These two were reputedly the strongest magic treasures below the Destiny class treasures, and were the pinnacle of all Mahayana magic treasures.
Beside the clock stood an elderly man dressed in translucent white. His robes billowed in the wind, revealing it to be the same shade as the clock itself, slightly more transparent.
The odd part about his appearance was his two sideburns. The left side was a pure cream white, while the right was a jet black streak, as though reflecting yin and yang.
This was no doubt the Yin-Yang Elder, the essence of the Void Yin-Yang Clock, who shone in comparison to even Kuang Heng and Xuan Lin Holy Man.
He did not look down the mountain immediately, but cast his gaze far through the void, at the Bell of Destiny who was intertwined in battle with the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain.
“And it’s just a Gestation level magic treasure, how fearsome…” Only then did he look down the mountain.
With a gentle tap, he sent reverberations through the translucent looking clock. But there was not a single sound, just ripples of the void sent through the atmosphere.
Everyone, even those standing in the Divine Lands, seemed to feel a tremor in their bodies.
The Yin-Yang Clock could not, or did not, produce actual sounds, what it did was to manipulate space. Streaks of white and black flowed down the clock and towards the mountain below.
Although the clock itself was not surprisingly huge, but the space it created below seemed huge and eager to swallow the entire mountain.
The first to sense that something was amiss, was none other than Lin Feng himself.
He felt something like the sky tearing the bonds between himself and Mount Yujing, the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree, and the Heavenly-Revolving Purple Clouds.
Kuang Heng looked at Lin Feng and said, “The power of the Void Yin-Yang Clock extends to space itself. Other than the Destiny class magic treasures, nothing can stand up to it.”
“Your mountain may be strong, but the powers within are not from one body. As long as they are separate entities, their bonds can still be torn by the clock.”
He continued, “You’ve been using the mountain’s power to tap into the power of the void. But using fire to fight fire, there’s no such thing as an unstoppable force.”
Lin Feng smiled and replied, “If that premise is true, then the Void Yin-Yang Clock is bound to be defeated.”
Before he could complete the sentence, the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree shone more brightly than ever, its branches and leaves shook violently. As the line shone brighter than before, the void around the tree began twisting and contorting, a clear act of defiance against the Void Yin-Yang Clock.
“Not the four spiritual trees, but something more powerful?” said Yin-Yang Elder as his form began to shake and his essence became one with the clock itself, releasing more power than before.
In a flow of white and black, the clock seemed more persistent than before, trying to encapsulate all of the Mount Yujing.
“The clock may not be invincible, but it definitely is enough to handle your precious mountain and tree.” whispered Kuang Heng quietly.
Lin Feng was done with the Void Yin-Yang Clock. He turned and started pacing towards Kuang Heng.
The light from Lin Feng shone on Kuang Heng, and the River of Time that he was holding onto seemed to stop in its flow.
The entire river seemed to have been frozen solid. But what could stop the flow of time?
Something that could not age. Something that could live forever!
“Eternal Glow!” Kuang Heng seemed to reveal a tint of horror. “This is the ancient power of the Immortal Dragon City! You…you…no wonder I felt that something was amiss right from the beginning when I got here. So Shi Yu had completely mastered the technique of the Immortal Dragon City.” Continued Kuang Heng.
“But, the Eternal Glow…Shi Yu’s training…how had it got to do with you? Could it be the sword?”
And he knew. Kuang Heng immediately put up the Horizon City to fend against Lin Feng’s assault.
With the Eternal Glow, Lin Feng was able to counter Kuang Heng’s River of Time. Though not able to destroy it, he was able to hold off its aging properties.
With increasing ferocity in each attack, the combined power of Lin Feng’s Heaven-Destroying Sword and Original Heaven and Earth Splitting Mantra combined both the powers of creation and destruction. The newfound strength finally hacked into Kuang Heng’s Horizon City.
“Rise!” uttered Kuang Heng. A plane of light shot out from his body.
The light brought out something so pure that it could not accept anything unlike itself. It pushed Lin Feng away. Looking back, it seemed as though Kuang Heng had put on additional clothing, and its material seemed to be just light.
A magic treasure, the Natural Light Celestial Robe!
Lin Feng’s attack was instantly repelled. In the sea of light, his sword became completely enveloped.
On the other front, the Formation Bursting Drum had taken on Lin Feng’s Two Elements of Creation Formation.
As the formation unleashed its powers in all its glory, beams of light shone out in all directions. The light expanded like the sky, within it being scriptures and words that joined together to form a gray-scale masterpiece.
The Heaven-Revolving Purple Clouds fused the Central Wutu Divine Light to harness air and land, while little Xiao and the Deathly Gas Stone became life and death.
In the formation, a white flame danced in unison with light from a purple crystal.
The Pure Yang Primordial Flame and the Netherworld Purple Crystal joined forces to harness yin and yang, the power over all creation and evolution.
The Two Elements of Creation Formation, The Six Forms of Creation and Destruction, the Changes of Yin and Yang!
Within the formation, a seemingly transparent piece of leather transformed and played out impossibly colourful scenes.
This was the gift from the Heavenly Fox Grand Sage! Spun from a silk demon, and masterfully crafted by the hands of the Heavenly Fox Grand Sage, this treasure had unlimited transformations.
An empty plain, brown dusty deserts, towering mountains, the clear blue sea, all the many variations of the scenes on the leather, as though each scene depicted a world of its own.
The item paired with the Ancient Mirage Leather was a piece of white jade crystal. The very Heaven-Reflecting Stone that Shi Tianhao had used to subdued the eyeball of Shi Tianyi.
The light from this stone eliminated all illusions, and thus it removed all from the leather.
Together, the power of illusion and reality seemed to have reached a new peak.
The Two Elements of Creation Formation, The Six Forms of Creation and Destruction, the Changes of illusion and reality!
Lin Feng’s Six Forms were incomplete before. It needed the simultaneous action of six changes and twelve treasures to complete the formation.
Only when the formation was complete, could each change fully utilise its true power.
Before merging, there was only the changes of land and air, life and death, but now there was yin and yang, illusion and reality.
Now with four elements playing at the same time, the Two Elements of Creation Formation seemed to reach an all new level.
But the Formation Bursting Drum was equally relentless. With the old man leading the front, beat after beat broke through the air.
Each beat had previously beaten one variation of the formation. But with the newfound balance of four, the drum beats seemed to have no effect.
While Lin Feng was stuck in battle with Kuang Heng, some of his attention lingered within the formation. With a swift spell from his right hand, the Eternal Glow entered the formation.
Instantly, the formation lit up with tiny specks of light like the fine sand of a tropical beach. On its own, each dot of light seemed ostensibly insignificant. But together, its power was remarkable.
This was the hidden gem of the Radiance Swort Sect, the Instant Heavenly Gravel.
The highest pugilist of the sect needed this item to harness the speed of light in their attacks.
Back when the leader of the sect brought Tao Yaoyao up Mount Yujing to ask for the Heaven-patching vine, he had given his own treasure in exchange. Lin Feng had already planned his strategy to first obtain the Instant Heavenly Gravel, then the Eternal Glow.
These two treasures, one eternal, one ephemeral, combined to harness the changes of time.
The Two Elements of Creation Formation, The Six Forms of Creation and Destruction, the Changes of eternity and ephemerality!
With the fifth player into the formation, its power was elevated to new heights, beyond what the Formation Bursting Drum could fathom.
The Drum Fairy, Kuang Heng, and Xuan Lin Holy Man seemed to grow weary in fear.
The formation grew like an uncontrollable beast, swallowing the sky.
Just as this transpired, from beyond the stars of the void shot a single beam of light!
The Saintly Celestial Sword Qi!
Mount Shu Sword Sect!
