Chapter 650: Junior Disciples of the Celestial Sect of Wonders
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Du Ting consolidated his powers to form streaks and streaks of golden light, which converted into a disc. As the disc spun, there were six streaks of golden radiances that expanded out. They were like the tooth of a saw. As the disc spun, they spun too.
These six streaks of golden radiances did not cut the flesh, spiritual energy or the powers of the opponent. They slashed the soul of the opponent instead.
Ying Luozha laughed sarcastically and jumped off from the mountain. Xu Yunsheng stopped him, “Don’t make any reckless move.”
As he said, Xu Yunsheng conjured a spell himself and the spiritual energy of the Heavens and Earth gathered, instantaneously converting into a beam of radiance. The radiance attacked the disc of Du Ting.
“Eight Spells of the Heavens and Earth, Penetration of the Heavens and Earth!”
As the radiance flashed, the disc of Du Ting was torn apart!
Du Ting and Elder Meng, whose true name was Meng Bei, were both shocked.
As Lin Feng saw this scene from Mount Yujing, he also laughed while shaking his head.
Over these three years, there were many Foundational Disciples that passed the tests and became Successive Disciples. While Lin Feng and the rest made the tests very strict, the scale of Successive Disciples was still growing.
Through their own tireless cultivations as well as the faster time in the Universal Light Hall, a portion of the Successive Disciples managed to open their aura sea and established their Tao foundation.
The outstanding ones like Xu Yunsheng and Ying Luozha cultivated till the Intermediate Stage and Advanced Stage of the Foundation Establishment Stage.
As the Foundational Disciples cultivated the Yi Zi’s Eight Trigrams Variorum, they developed the basic Qi Cultivation.
As they built a stable foundation, this bunch of disciples began to learn different types of abhijnas and mantras.
Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi and the rest passed on their own mantras and abhijnas to their disciples. They also came together to devise the basic abhijnas and spells of the sect, completing the entire manual.
They reduced the difficulty of cultivation of these abhijnas and mantras to ensure that more disciples could cultivate. At the same time, this allowed these disciples to increase their powers too.
To some extent, these abhijnas and spells were the signature ones in the Celestial Sect of Wonders. Of course, this was only applicable to the lower levels of cultivation.
Xiao Yan and the rest kept on perfecting the skills of their disciples. As these disciples’ weaknesses were alleviated and their strengths were boosted, some positive results were witnessed.
The Penetration of the Heavens and Earth that Xu Yunsheng just exhibited was the fourth spell of the Eight Spells of the Heavens and Earth.
The foundation of the Eight Spells of the Heavens and Earth was created using the ‘Fou’ Hexagram of the Heavens and Earth and the ‘Tai’ Hexagram of the Heavens from the Combination of the Heavens and Earth of Zhu Yi’s Way of the Facile Blade. After that, the Crash of the Eight Trigrams, Infinite Thunderstorm, Imperius Grand Moon Curse and the Space-Destroying Spear Technique along with many other abhijnas were used to fully form the Eight Spells of the Heavens and Earth.
With the consideration of reducing the cultivation difficulty, the Way of the Facile Blade, Crash of the Eight Trigrams, Infinite Thunderstorm and other spells were used, but their powers were still extraordinary. They formed the basic abhijnas that the Foundational Disciples cultivated. Almost every Successive Disciple were pleased to master them.
The Penetration of the Heavens and Earth was unleashed after the spiritual energy of the Heavens and Earth had been shrunk and gathered together. It could penetrate things extremely well. A streak of bright radiance could penetrate through the Heavens and directly destroyed Du Ting’s spell.
Meng Bei and the rest’s eyes twitched as they saw this scene, “The Heavenly Disc Spell may not be strong, but Xu Yunsheng managed to destroy it so easily?” (Translator’s Note: The Heavenly Disc Spell was the spell used by Du Ting.)
Du Ting shook his head hard and calmed his nerves. He looked at Xu Yunsheng seriously and conjured a spell with his left hand. His right index finger pointed to his own forehead.
A drop of blood appeared on his forehead and his right index finger was stained by the blood. After that, he pointed it at Xu Yunsheng.
Suddenly, a streak of golden blood line stabbed straight at Xu Yunsheng.
Xu Yunsheng’s expression did not change. He looked at the blood line that was shot towards him and noticed that the end of it seemed to be vibrating in the air. It seemed like it was unstable and its own spiritual sense could not lock on the exact location.
Although he did not know what the blood line was for, Xu Yunsheng could not use his own body as an experiment to see how powerful his opponent’s spell was.
He stood on the ground and exhibited the Grand Escape Spell of the Eight Spells of the Heavens and Earth. He dodged the attack of the blood line and as his palms opened, streaks and streaks of mana were shot out. They consolidated in the air without dissipating, forming lines and lines of ropes.
The ropes intersected with one another and trapped Du Ting’s blood line within. It was as if they formed a cage.
The fifth spell of the Eight Spells of the Heavens and Earth, the Spell of Geography, converted Xu Yunsheng’s powers into imaginary longitudes and latitudes to control the situation. They formed a form-less trap to withhold the spell of the opponent within.
Du Ting controlled the golden blood line to stab the ropes created by Xu Yunsheng’s powers and pierced through the ropes.
As the ropes were pierced through by the blood line, they started to collapse.
Xu Yunsheng remained calm and replenished them with his powers. He reformed the ropes and trapped the blood line together. At the same time, the ropes intersected even more and formed overlaps, causing the blood line to have nowhere to run. After that, they tightened suddenly.
The blood line was snapped by the tightening of the ropes, but Du Ting pointed with his finger again. As golden light flashed, the blood line was restored to its original state and destroyed Xu Yunsheng’s ropes again.
Xu Yunsheng was enlightened. He realized the demonic powers of the opponent’s spell, but this did not deter him.
Xu Yunsheng was focused on two things. Firstly, he commanded the Spell of Geography. Next, he exhibited the Spell of Control too.
Not only did the Spell of Control come from the Celestial Sect of Wonders’ own mantras, it also infused a little of the Vairocana Sutra. It was dominant and invincible, and its main goal was to overcome demonic spells.
“Remain!” Xu Yunsheng used his right index finger to draw a semi-circle in space and pointed it towards the golden blood line of Du Ting. The powerful mana caused the blood line to remain in its position in space.
Du Ting was shocked. After that, he saw Xu Yunsheng’s ropes created from the Spell of Geography coming towards him. Now that he was trapped, he was captured alive by Xu Yunsheng.
Du Ting gritted his teeth and sent out a disc-like magic item that was flashing with light. He tried to cut the ropes that were trapping him.
That was a black flying disc with nine teeth and was as small as a palm. It was called the Nine-Toothed Soul-Crushing Heavenly Disc. It was an Aurous Core Stage magic item!
This magic item belonged to Meng Bei. For safety’s sake, he gave it Du Ting before the start of the fight. Initially, he hoped that it did not have to be used. But who knew Du Ting was not Xu Yunsheng’s match. He was captured in just a short while.
Meng Bei’s brows raised, “Although Du Ting is not the most outstanding among my Foundation Establishment Stage disciples, he is still exceptional. But he is so far off from his opponent? Besides Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi and the rest, even the junior disciples of the Celestial Sect of Wonders are so outstanding?”
Du Ting was a little embarrassed. He guided the Nine-Toothed Soul-Crushing Heavenly Disc to make a turn in space, converting into a dark light and flew towards Xu Yunsheng.
Xu Yunsheng’s ropes bound together and converted into a light shield to resist the dark light.
As the dark light was resisted, the original form of the heavenly disc was revealed. It did not fly back towards Du Ting, but continued to make spins around the light shield. It revealed its might as an Aurous Core Stage magic item. Like a scissors cutting through cloth, it tried to overcome the Spell of Geography.
As Lin Feng saw this, he creased his brows.
If this was a life and death battle, he had nothing to say. Both parties would use their own powers, talismans, magic items, psychological battles, deceptions and basically anything useful to defeat and kill each other.
But if they were just sparring, generally speaking, it was always silently agreed that they wouldn’t use any items and only sparred based on their own powers.
Just like the Spiritual Conference of Huanghai. Otherwise, it was not sparring, but a competition to see whose sect had more resources.
Or rather, it was a competition to see who was more shameless.
A competition between two Foundation Establishment Stage cultivators could be ended with just a Nascent Soul Stage talisman.
Ying Luozha looked at Du Ting in disdain and laughed coldly, “I like opponents like you who break the rules.” As he said, his right palm opened and a ray of light flew into mid-space, converting into a colored light shield. It directly captured the Nine-Toothed Soul-Crushing Heavenly Disc!
As Xu Yunsheng saw this, he creased his brows slightly. Ying Luozha laughed without care, “This disc is decent. I like magic items like this which are very offensive.”
The colored glass was fully transparent and flashed with rainbow lights. The bright lights were blinding. From the outside, one could see the dark light, converted from the disc, moving aimlessly inside the light shield. It was ferocious, but could not overcome the defense of the light shield.
Du Ting was as stunned as Meng Bei and the rest at the top of the mountain. Du Ting’s Aurous Core Stage magic item was given to him by Meng Bei for emergency use. But now the light shield was also an Aurous Core Stage magic item that belonged to Ying Luozha.
Meng Bei was troubled as his magic item was taken by Ying Luozha, “This is only a sparring, but you interfered. What’s the reason? You have broken the rules, should you be stopping now?”
Ying Luozha looked at Meng Bei fearlessly and laughed, “Who broke the rules first? Although I don’t really fancy the rules, it doesn’t mean I don’t know them. Who are you trying to scam?”
Meng Bei’s expression changed, “How dare you!” As he said, he lifted his palm and five streaks of mana consolidated above his head, creating five types of appearances.
A long sword shining with golden light, a huge tree that reached into the skies, a sea of raging waves, a ball of raging fire and a steep mountain cliff were the five appearances.
As these five appearances took shape, they started to revolve. As they came together, they reinforced one another and became more and more powerful.
And this stable arrangement formed a huge whirlpool that engulfed the spiritual energy in the Heavens and Earth. The whirlpool revolved more and more quickly.
In the next instant, it converted into a huge palm that was filled with powers. As five radiances flashed, the dominance of the palm grew.
Five Elements Palm Print of Heavenly Tao.
The huge palm grabbed onto the light shield with a vigorous might.
As Xu Yunsheng saw this, he converted a green wooden staff into a huge wood, resisting the Five Elements Palm Print of the Heavenly Tao, preventing it from landing.
Du Ting was shocked as he saw this. “Another Aurous Core Stage magic item. Don’t tell me every Foundation Establishment Stage disciple from the Celestial Sect of Wonders has an Aurous Core Stage magic item?”
It was not naturally the case, but for outstanding ones like Xu Yunsheng and Ying Luozha, they were indeed given one each by Zhu Yi.
Ying Luozha changed his spell. As the light shield continued to suppress the Nine-Toothed Soul-Crushing Heavenly Disc, it revealed a rainbow radiance, which aided Xu Yunsheng’s wood in resisting Meng Bei.
The two of them were talented and their powers were strong. As they commanded the two Aurous Core Stage magic items, they frustrated Meng Bei. He was furious until his face turned green.
At this point, a spatial crack opened in void space. An elder in white robe walked out. The vibration of mana around his body was frightening. He was a Nascent Soul Stage Grandmaster.
He looked at both Xu Yunsheng and Ying Luozha, before saying, “It’s easy to get a magic item, but not easy to achieve the Great Tao. Relying on external items will make it difficult for one to become powerful.”
As this elder said, he extended his hand and a strong absorption power engulfed the place. He snatched the green wooden staff and colored light shield away.
