Chapter 699: Yang-Incinerating! Yin-Terminating!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Under the push of Chen Xingyu’s mana, the black Yin gas continued to concentrate into black balls of light.
The eight black balls of light occupied eight places and then simultaneously began to give off a bright, black light, aimed at Zhou Yuncong who was caught in the center.
While it appeared to be a simple encirclement attack, Zhou Yuncong felt an overwhelming sense of enmity. It appeared as if every single power under the Heavens had become his enemy and a mountain-moving force was rushing towards him.
His own flow of spiritual energy with the outside world appeared to have been cut off, putting him a tight spot.
In the Grand Heavens Pavilion, the group of Immortal Soul stage elders viewing the fight looked interested. “Oh, isn’t that a spell derived from the Bright Space Pure Yin Treasure Manual, the Dark Yin Eight Barren Charm?”
The Bright Space Pure Yin Treasure Manual, together with the Pure Yang Mystic Heart Spell Appearance, are some of the most powerful mantras of the Great Void Sect. It was suitable for pure Yin cultivators. Had Luo Qingwu joined the Great Void Sect earlier, she would have learned this mantra.
Right now, Chen Xingyu cultivated the Yin Yang Mantra of the Void. After he reached the Immortal Soul stage and completely mastered the Yin Yang Mantra of the Void, he would be able to cultivate the Bright Space Pure Yin Treasure Manual too. However, it appeared that it was not the case right now.
What he displayed right now was a result of him forcing his mana to reach the Yin-Terminating through his own will. Doing so allowed him to wield the spells derived from the Bright Space Pure Yin Treasure Manual, while also demonstrating his exceptional understanding of mantras.
Faced with the incomingDark Yin Eight Barren Charm, Zhou Yuncong’s face did not change. He continued to keep his cool as waves after waves of black, Yang-Incinerating gas clashed against the incoming black light. Neither side seemed to be giving way.
What inspired terror in the hearts of the younger cultivators watching this fight in the Dharma Hall was as Zhou Yuncong’s gaze became more and more heavy, this also caused his entire being to appear more and more cruel and murderous. It was a horrifying atmosphere.
Numerous Yang-Incinerating gases turned into black, knife-like, gases as they fought against the encirclement of the Dark Yin Eight Barren Charm. Gradually, it almost completely destroyed the spell that Chen Xingyu wielded as the terrifying black, knife-like, gases rushed towards Chen Xingyu.
Chen Xingyu’ entire mana and concentration were focused on the Dark Yin Eight Barren Charm and hence, his defence was greatly weakened. Faced with Zhou Yuncong’s Yang-Incinerating attack, his position became extremely precarious.
However, his expression was still calm as he met Zhou Yuncong’s gaze. His face appeared slightly odd.
Chen Xingyu used the Mystic Teleportation Spell of the Flow of Light and Space to avoid Zhou Yuncong’s Yang-Incinerating gas. At the same time, black and white gases appeared next to his body again. As the white gases appeared, they turned straightaway into black, Yin gases as they continued to supplement the Dark Yin Eight Barren Charm.
Yin and Yang intersected as endless amount of mana flowed out from it. It was a mystical sight.
The Great Void Sect cultivators watching this scene began to smile. “Yin and Yang are limitless and indestructible. By cultivating the Yin Yang Mantra of the Void to this level, Senior Chen is not afraid of a battle of attrition.”
“Correct, as long as Zhou Yuncong’s Yang-Incinerating Vital Spirit has no chance of striking, in the long while, Senior Chen’s mana foundation is much stronger. While Zhou Yuncong’s Yang-Incinerating powers are strong, he cannot sustain such an explosive mantra for long.”
“Even if he brims with mana, a long battle will take a toll on him. In this regard, he loses to Senior Chen.”
As another exceptional disciple of the Great Void Sect, Fan Xuefeng was a good judge of the battle. Her analysis of the situation was extremely on point.
Zhou Yuncong was no one-trick pony. After he formed his Aurous Core, he immediately underwent the Tribulations of Yin Fire, which was an extremely dangerous and unpredictable affair. Only with the help of Yang Qing was he able to suppress his cultivation to the Advanced Foundation Establishment stage, where he stayed for a long while.
While his Yang-Incinerating powers were taxing, Zhou Yuncong can maintain it for a long while. Hence, he was not afraid of his opponents wearing him down.
However, the mana of a Foundation Establishment stage cultivator was ultimately still very limited. In a long battle, he was no match for Chen Xingyu, who cultivated the Yin Yang Avatar Limitless Mantra.
Zhou Yuncong was the clearest about his own problems. Hence, looking at how Chen Xingyu avoided battling him head-on while evading his moves, he understood his plans.
“Duo!” Zhou Yuncong’s gaze flashed as he roared. All of his ferocious Yang-Incinerating powers were retracted.
Everyone was shocked. As the black, Yang-Incinerating gases around Zhou Yuncong retreated back into his body, he then pulled out the glaringly bright Grand Sun Primordial Flame.
Doing so was not surprising at all. It was natural for him to be able to control his Yang-Incinerating powers and then transform them into the Yang mana. This was expected and natural, if not he would have wasted all of his previous cultivation as he could have been completely incinerated by the Yang mana.
However, for him to abandon his Yang-Incinerating powers in his battle against Chen Xingyu was incomprehensible to everyone else.
Only Chen Xingyu betrayed an expression of concern.
In the next instant, the Grand Sun Primordial Flame around Zhou Yuncong began to change once again. However, it no longer turned into black gas but instead, it turned into aw white gas. It was evidently a pure Yang mana, brimming with a searing hot mana.
The moment this pure Yang mana came into contact with Chen Xingyu’s Dark Yin Eight Barren Charm, they began to merge together.
Zhou Yuncong then separated his two hands. His left and right hand each began to conjure different spells and then, he slammed them together before his chest.
Xu Yunsheng and Ying Luozha, both of who had already returned to the Heavenly Temple, were stunned. They said in unison, “This is the Yin Yang Reversal Spell!”
The spell that Zhou Yuncong used now was something that his master, Yang Qing, invented after the latter understood more about the Great Celestial Way of the Eight Trigrams.
Li Xingfei, Liu Xiafeng, Zhuge Wanqiu and the rest watching the battle were all shocked. None of the second-generation disciples were able to use a spell such as the Yin Yang Reversal Spell.
Other than the foundation spells such as the Eight Spells of the Heavens and Earth and the Fist of the Eight Trigrams, they also cultivated the The Golden Chapters of the Yansheng Eight Trigrams, Heavenly Extreme Path Sutra and the True Understanding of the Tempest. Some of them were able to come up with their own spells, such as Ying Luozha, and some were able to come up with mutant variants of these spells, such as Li Xingfei’s Extreme Finger of Styx and the Liu Xiafeng’s Grand Sun Primordial Flame.
However, spells that Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi, Wang Lin and the rest came up with after cultivating the Great Celestial Way of the Eight Trigrams, such as the Crash of the Eight Trigrams, the Way of the Facile Blade and the Celestial Finger of Styx were still a mystery to their respective disciples.
Normally, if they wished to master it, there were two ways. First, they could do so after they themselves began to cultivate the Great Celestial Way of the Eight Trigrams. By understanding the teachings of the Great Celestial Way of the Eight Trigrams, they would be able to master these spells. Some of them may even come up with their own spells.
The second way would be for them to attain a higher level of cultivation where their understanding of the Heavens, Earth and the Dao would be deeper. Even if they did not cultivate the Great Celestial Way of the Eight Trigrams, they could still master these spells. However, they may have to wait till after they formed thier Aurous Core.
Yang Qing’s Yin Yang Reversal Spell followed the same principle. However, Zhou Yuncong was able to use this spell right now
“Did his master teach him the Great Celestial Way of the Eight Trigrams or is his understanding of these spells exceptionally high and superior to ours?” In that moment, every single disciple of the Celestial Sect of Wonders appeared slightly lost as they looked at the fierce youth in the arena.
With the help of the Yin Yang Reversal Spell, coupled with the harassment by Zhou Yuncong’s mana, Chen Xingyu’s Yin mana began to tremble violently.
As Yin and Yang inverted, the great Dao returned to its primal form. Chen Xingyu’s attempts at turning his Yang mana into Yin were affected.
The flow of Yin and Yang and the perfect balance that allowed it was immediately shattered.
An Yin-Terminating spirit turned once again into one black and one white streams of gases. The Dark Yin Eight Barren Charm disappeared as well.
Zhou Yuncong bellowed loudly as he immediately incinerated the mana swirling around him, turning it into the ferocious Yang-Incinerating Vital Spirit. It was like a ferocious demon that rose from Hell.
At this moment, Chen Xingyu’s mana trembled once again. Despite the interference of the Yin Yang Reversal Spell, he was able to further solidify it into an Yin-Terminating spirit. Once again, he established the balance between Yin and Yang and blocked, against all odds, Zhou Yuncong’s Yang-Incinerating Vital Spirit.
For the first time since the start of the battle, Zhou Yuncong, who had always been cold and collected, looked shocked. He stared, slightly dumbfounded, at Chen Xingyu.
In the Grand Heavens Pavilion, Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi and the rest were taken aback. They all swivelled their heads to look at Yang Qing
They knew that while Yang Qing’s Yin Yang Reversal Spell appeared benign, it was extremely powerful and aggressive. Any opponent in the same stage would be severely affected. Even a pure Yin entity like Luo Qingwu, or Ding Runfeng of the Great Void Sect, could not avoid its impact
There were very exceptions. One of them was Yang Qing, an entity whose Yin and Yang were perfectly balanced. The other was Zhou Yuncong, who was an extreme example of a Yang-Incinerating entity.
“There’s one other exception,” Lin Feng said as he gently tapped the armrest of his seat. He looked, slightly interestedly, at Chen Xingyu and smiled, “Since Yuncong is a Yang-Incinerating entity, there’s also an Yin-Terminating entity.”
Just as how a pure Yang entity and a pure Yin entity were polar opposites, a Yang-Incinerating entity had its match too in the form of an Yin-Terminating entity. Yin-Terminating entities would attempt to cultivate and minimize their own Yin aura, turning into Yin-Terminating aura. If they did not do it in time, they ran the risk of being frozen to death. Hence, Yin-Terminating entities were as rare as Yang-Incinerating entities.
However, Yin-Terminating entities had an advantage in cultivating Yin-type spells. If they were able to use the Yin-Terminating aura, then they would become even more powerful. They would then be able to reduce their opponent’s Yin aura to nothing.
Lin Feng’s gaze turned to Lin Daohan and Yan Mingyue. He smiled and said, “Congratulations on obtaining such a disciple.”
Speaking about it, the way he and Yang Qing trained Zhou Yuncong was highly similar to how the Great Void Sect trained Chen Xingyu.
While Zhou Yuncong and Chen Xingyu were both suited for either pure Yang and pure Yin styles of cultivation, Lin Feng and the Great Void Sect trained the both of them with a combination of both Yin and Yang.
Zhou Yuncong studied under Yang Qing, while Chen Xingyu cultivated the Yin Yang Mantra of the Void rather than the Bright Space Pure Yin Treasure Manual.
Lin Daohan smiled slightly, “It appears I have embarrassed myself. My disciple still has much room for improvement. Fighting with your honorable sect’s disciple will greatly benefit him.”
While the Great Void Sect and the Celestial Sect of Wonders smiled and talked freely, the other elders too smiled. However, in their hearts, they knew an exciting battle was unfolding.
Just like how Zhou Yuncong was able to easily suppress Pure Yang entities or Natural Fire-Type Entity, Chen Xingyu, as a Yin-Terminating entity, would easily suppress Luo Qingwu, a Pure Yin entity.
