Chapter 812: Thousand Ghostly Arrows, Godly Print Mirror Stone
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Right now, Zhang Lie’s hands were free. The Extermination Pole-Ax had disappeared. Just now, as void space cracked along with the effect of the Real and Illusory World of Wang Lin, the entire space in the Heavens and Earth was disrupted. The Extermination Pole-Ax was sucked somewhere else.
As he faced Wang Lin’s Narakade, Zhang Lie opened his palms and his physical martial arts seemed to consolidate into an entity, converting into a void projection.
Under the sky, lava spewed and the molten lava spread. This was as if doomsday had arrived.
A sense of disaster, destruction and bitterness was exuded. As the lava spread, it resembled a frightening Hell.
The boundless green fire expanded and the fire did not seem to have an end. It caused the entire sky to turn green.
The True Torch of Ksitigarbha of the Seven Legendary Primordial Fires.
Zhang Lie summoned his Ksitigarbha Purgatory Fist to its extreme and caused his opponent to descend into a hell where the True Torch of Ksitigarbha raged. As one was subjected to such an environment, he would undergo extreme torment and would not be able to reincarnate.
The fist that summoned the True Torch of Ksitigarbha clashed with the Narakade summoned by Wang Lin’s River Styx Primordial Water.
The Cosmic Form above Wang Lin’s head let out a groan. With its brutal strength, even without the help of a magic treasure, it was fearless as it faced the Immortal Soul Stage Zhang Lie.
His gaze was cold and eerie as it stared at Zhang Lie. The Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner swayed behind it. Cao Wei’s Immortal Soul re-appeared. This time, he revealed his Immortal Soul Avatar and converted into a blue Sun that flashed a cold light. It was extremely eye-blinding and caused a chill down anyone’s spine who saw it.
The icy fog spread again and continued to target the Burning Ice Technique. This time, as Cao Wei revealed his Immortal Soul Avatar, he further increased the powers of this spell as it attacked Zhang Lie.
Although it was unable to raze the True Torch of Ksitigarbha, it kept on draining the powers of the Ksitigarbha Purgatory Fist. The hell they were in started to become unstable and was about to collapse!
Zhang Lie’s body was stained with the white, icy fog. In an instant, it transformed into a huge fire and spread.
At the same time, Wang Lin’s Narakade came crashing down again.
Zhang Lie groaned. As his limbs jerked, his fist resembled a spear. As his fist shook hardly in void space, the fire and icy fog on his body dissipated. At the same time, he tapped lightly on Wang Lin’s Narakade.
Like a huge spear that twisted under pressure, Zhang Lie’s limbs also started to twist tremendously, forming a weird arc.
In the next moment, his limbs straightened. As he jerked it with great pressure, he tapped on this force to shift his body to avoid the Narakade of Wang Lin.
In this instant, the exquisiteness of his physical martial arts was fully displayed. But Wang Lin’s Narakade was too ferocious. After this move by Zhang Lie, the pores on his limbs started to surface blood beads.
In the tough physical flesh of this Immortal Soul Stage Elder, countless tiny blood vessels burst and his muscle membranes tore.
He summoned the strength of his legs and attempted to escape.
Wang Lin was expressionless. As the projection above his head flashed, the Real and Illusory World appeared again. It unleashed a miraculous power.
The illusory world combined with the Heavens and Earth to interrupt the real world.
Following that, Zhang Lie was knocked by the Narakade, although he was sure that he had avoided it earlier!
The water of the River of Forgetfulness slammed on the body of the bridge. It let out a furious roar, as if it had a life on its own. The roar was deep, ancient and frightening to the core!
A brutal and all-conquering force struck Zhang Lie’s chest.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Ka-cha! Ka-cha! Ka-cha!
It was as if bowstrings were snapping alongside the sound of metal being crushed. This was the sound of Zhang Lie’s bones and tendons snapping after being crushed by the Narakade.
“Besides switching reality to illusion, you can also switch illusion to reality?!” Zhang Lie understood now.
Initially, Zhang Lie thought that he had avoided the Narakade.
But under the effect of Wang Lin’s True and Illusory World, black and white were confused while reality and illusion were reversed. He switched illusion to reality, and caused the Narakade to hit Zhang Lie for real. And the avoidance of the Narakade that Zhang Lie made earlier had become an illusory existence!
“It’s a pity that I am not well-versed in such an ability, otherwise I may not have been overcome by you…”
Zhang Lie wanted to dodge, but was restrained by the Narakade. He wanted to speak, but he could only spit blood out. In space, the blood converted into balls and balls of blood fog.
Although his opponent was about to be defeated, Wang Lin still creased his brows. As his gaze flashed, his actions slowed down.
At this point, a desolate voice rang out, “Are you going to capture him alive? That won’t do.”
Following the sound, an elder in black appeared in void space. His hair was white and his face was clear. He was King Wuguan of the Ten Kings of Hell of the Hall of the Dead, Sikong You, who was in the Immortal Soul Second Level.
He looked at Zhang Lie and said, “He should have died earlier.”
As he said this, he swung his hand and a black, ghostly fog spurted out.
“Darkness converts into fog, dissipating into smoke…”
“Approaching nightmare, release of Yin energy…”
“Thousand Ghostly Arrows, Kill!”
The black, ghostly fog dissipated in an instant and converted into a thousand hungry ghouls. As they screamed in horror, they filled the skies and blocked out the Sun. As they flipped in mid-space, they converted into a thousand ghostly arrows filled with Yin energy. They shot towards Wang Lin and Zhang Lie!
Zhang Lie laughed, “Elder You, you are really good at exploiting the opportunity!” As he laughed, he was struck by the ghostly arrows and was left to die.
Wang Lin was expressionless and snorted. Yu Xintao’s Immortal Soul appeared and unleashed his Immortal Soul Avatar. He exhibited his strongest defensive abhijna, the Xuanming Magic Shield, blocking off the arrows on behalf of Wang Lin.
Yu Xintao gave up all offense and focused solely on defending. The Xuanming Magic Shield rocked heavily as it was struck and cracks appeared. This was even after Zhang Lie had taken half of the arrows.
Wang Lin did not look at Sikong You but he turned his attention to Zhang Lie.
As his gaze flickered, an emotion flashed through his eyes.
Sikong You looked at Wang Lin, “You are the third disciple of Lin Feng, Wang Lin, aren’t you? I am Sikong You, the past leader of the Million Wraith Sect.”
Wang Lin turned to look at him and said, “Million Wraith Sect, Sikong You? You are here for Sikong Nan?”
Sikong You stared at him and answered honestly, “Partially because of my brother, and partially because of the Pearl of Styx.”
Wang Lin remained indifferent and nodded his head. He did not speak and shook the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner. Besides Cao Wei and Yu Xintao, even the previous King Qinguang’s Immortal Soul Avatar was released.
Summoning the powers of three Immortal Soul Stage cultivators through the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner was Wang Lin’s limit.
Sikong You shook his head, “The Immediate Disciples of the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders are indeed extraordinary. Your senior, Zhu Yi, is also in the same cultivation level as you. The both of you can overcome most Immortal Soul First Level cultivators.”
“He can match an Immortal Soul Second Level cultivator, but you can’t. That’s because he does not only have one magic treasure in the metaplasia realm. On the other hand, if we really talk about it, this banner of yours is the most suitable magic treasure for someone who has yet to form the Immortal Soul. But for you, it is a little awkward.”
“That’s because the powers of this banner lie in the Immortal Soul Stage cultivators that are trapped inside. The effects of the banner itself is limited.” Sikong You’s lips trembled a little and he revealed a smile on his face, “Cao Wei and the rest are also decent among the Immortal Soul First Level cultivators, but they are not good enough to win me even if they work together.”
As Sikong You said, he opened both his arms and countless ghostly screams could be heard. Streaks and streaks of black light surged and they merged into a world that enveloped Wang Lin.
Wang Lin’s expression did not change. He was not moved by what Sikong You said. He was already prepared and was just looking for any flaws in Sikong You.
From the outside, the Heavens and Earth seemed to have formed a huge black light ball. It was as if a black Sun was hanging in the sky, releasing a dim and chilly radiance.
In void space not far from the black light ball, a little radiance flashed. As the radiance flashed, a greenish-black Pole-Ax appeared.
The Pole-Ax transcended void space and landed on a hill. On the top of a hill, there was someone sitting on his knees. He wore a black costume. He was Zhang Lie.
But his face was pale and his energy was weak. He did not seem to be an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator right now. Rather, he seemed more like a sickly person.
But following his every breath, his powers recovered slowly. His energy was also on the rise.
Zhang Lie was holding a black stone that had already cracked. He looked at the light ball and smiled, “Sikong, you are the one who is dead.”
He laughed weakly, “Luckily I have this Godly Print Mirror Stone ”
This Godly Print Mirror Stone of Zhang Lie had a similar effect to Lin Feng’s Heavenly Oyster Golden Pearl, but there were more disadvantages to it. It could only be used once. Once duplicated, the actual stone will lose all its strength. It was as if the powers of the original stone will be transferred to the duplicated stone. It was only after the duplicated stone was destroyed or if the spell was removed could the original stone regain its powers. However, this could not happen instantaneously too – it still required time.
When Zhang Lie was trying to restore himself, his brows creased slightly. The Extermination Pole-Ax had started to jerk too.
The void space above the hill also shook a little. A youth in white revealed himself. He stared at Zhang Lie calmly. He was Kang Nanhua.
Zhang Lie laughed, “Oh, Nanhua, you are fast. You really want me to die.”
Kang Nanhua had a calm tone, but his killing intent could be detected, “Zhang Lie, no matter what reason you had in the past, you still have to pay for what you did.”
Zhang Lie turned his head slightly and laughed, “Is that so?”
Before he finished speaking, the ground started to shake tremendously. In the next moment, green flames started to spread and engulfed the entire place.
Kang Nanhua frowned, “A Formation?”
But this formation was very far from the hill and could not help Zhang Lie.
