Chapter 831: Four Appearance Sky River Crushes the Grand Moon
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Amidst the sea of fire, a giant with four heads and eight limbs stood tall. Whitish Pure Yang Primordial Fire converted into a humanly form. The images of the Right Trigrams converted into the eight limbs, whereas the Grand Sun Primordial Fire, Nanming Primordial Fire, Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire and the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze became the four heads.
In front of the giant, there was a small purplish-black lotus seat. On the lotus seat, golden stamens swayed gentle and they looked extremely delicate.
But the expressions of both Ning Lang and the Chongyan Swordmaster turned ghastly. They could clearly feel the frightening stature of the Tri-Fire Lotus move of Xiao Yan.
This Tri-Fire Lotus Move was combined from the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire, Grand Sun Primordial Fire and the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze. This was the combination with the most destructive power. As it was controlled by Xiao Yan now, its powers were much above most Immortal Soul First Level cultivators.
The brutal powers of the Tri-Fire Lotus descended from the sky. As Ning Lang and the Chongyan Swordmaster saw this, they turned serious.
This Tri-Fire Lotus move also alarmed the Grand Moon Swordmaster. He took in a deep breath and his sword aura expanded out. His virtual entity was revealed at this point, which was a light projection of a gentleman who was thin.
The Grand Moon Sword was also summoned to its limits by him.
In an instant, this change allowed him to break free from the fight with the Virtuous Zen Master and proceed towards Xiao Yan.
While this Tri-Fire Lotus move couldn’t kill Ning Lang or the Chongyan Swordmaster, it would still be tough on the both of them to resist Xiao Yan.
As the Grand Moon Swordmaster unleashed his swordplay, his sword mind and aura converted into a layer of cloudy fog, which covered Ning Lang, the Chongyan Swordmaster and himself.
The brutal Fire Lotus landed on top of fog, exploding instantaneously and converting into a sea of fire.
A huge fire beam shot into the skies, into the clouds. It was as if it broke a huge hole in the sky. Everything nearby seemed to become nothing instantly, as the trees and grass were turned to ashes.
The Kunlun Mountains turned black and several mountain rocks collapsed, turning into white ash.
With such an explosive strength, even the shockwaves of the explosion were terrifying. Jieyu and the others did not dare to underestimate this explosion and they immediately mounted their defense.
The Virtuous Zen Master unleashed a beam of Buddhist light to cover the entire Ethereal Mountain, preventing it from being rocked by the explosion.
The Grand Moon Sword converted into a fog and was attacked by the burning fire repeatedly. But it was not destroyed.
The sword aura and sword mind of the Grand Moon Sword formed overlapping layers that went on to break down the powers of the Heaven Fire Lotus.
Each layer seemed to be very thin, just like a strand of hair. But every layer was in fact very resilient. Tearing each layer would require a tremendous amount of strength.
But these layers did not just overlap one another and mounted a passive defense. They were moving constantly according to the rhythm of the Grand Moon Sword, achieving a brilliant connection.
This allowed the sword to resist the Heaven Fire Lotus successfully.
In the next moment, the Grand Moon Swordmaster guided the sword mind to attack Xiao Yan.
Through the sea of fire, the sword mind was degraded constantly, but it was replenished as soon as it was broken down.
The Grand Moon Swordmaster controlled the sword mind perfectly. Even if it was broken down constantly, it continued to find a path to advance forward.
All of a sudden, the sword mind of the Grand Moon Sword seemed to be powered to its extreme. It surged within the sea of fire and was about to leave it behind.
Xiao Yan laughed and his body was surrounded by black gas, released by the Jade Green Dragon formed from the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze. The boundless Heaven Apocalyptic Blaze filled the entire place and started to degrade the sword mind of the Grand Moon Sword
Following this degradation, the strength of the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze became more and more powerful. At the end, the black fire raged in the skies, covering the entire ceiling of the sky. This caused the entire place to turn dark.
The violent yet greedy power concept left the Grand Moon Swordmaster at a loss.
While a portion of the sword mind managed to overcome the Jade Green Dragon, it became useless as it reached Xiao Yan, given the presence of the Divine Token of the Five Thrones.
With the Divine Token of the Five Thrones around, Xiao Yan forsook his own self-defense. Rather, he summoned his powers to their extremes and battled the Grand Moon Swordmaster.
If it was the Shaoshang Swordmaster, Lixiong Swordmaster or the Shaoyang Swordmaster around, he could further increase his offensive strength.
The Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze had no limits to its engulfing abilities, but Xiao Yan had a limit to how well he could control the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze. Although his powers were frightening, he was still in the Nascent Soul Stage. An Immortal Soul Second Level cultivator could overcome the strength of the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze.
If Xiao Yan reacted by increasing the powers of the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze, beyond a certain level, the fire might become out of his control. When that happened, Xiao Yan’s own powers might be swallowed up too.
While the Grand Moon Sword was an exquisite sword that displayed a vigorous art of swordplay and was unpredictable, it was not suited for attacking. Even if its powers were increased, it would not be of much use.
With the current situation, such a tactic would be too useless. It was only achieving the effect of sending his own powers to fuel the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze.
His Grand Moon Sword could resist the Tri-Fire Lotus, but against the Jade Green Dragon, it could not gain an upper hand.
“It’s a pity my understanding of the Grand Moon Sword is insufficient, otherwise if I had cultivated the Grand Moon Four Sword Realms, he will not be my match.”
The Grand Moon Four Sword Realms was the highest level of the Grand Moon. These four sword realms referred to the Realm of Omnipresence, Realm of Obscurity, Realm of Boundlessness and the Realm of Pervasiveness.
While the defense of the Grand Moon Sword was good, offense was always the best weapon. And the Grand Moon Four Sword Realms was the peak of the offensive powers of the Grand Moon Sword.
However, throughout the history of the Mount Shu Sword Sect, there have been very few Immortal Soul Second Level cultivators who had managed to reach that stage.
As he saw that Xiao Yan’s Jade Green Dragon was becoming more and more violent, the Grand Moon Swordmaster gave up his offense and returned to his defensive stance.
He focused everything on protecting himself. Although the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze was still capable of swallowing his sword aura, once he gathered them back together to form a steely formation, it would become harder for them to be degraded.
As news leaked out, there would be reinforcements from the Mount Shu Sword Sect coming over, since Mount Shu was not far from here.
Although this conflict was likely to spark a larger clash and was a little beyond the expectations of the Grand Moon Swordmaster, if a large-scale battle really broke out, the Mount Shu Sword Sect cultivators would not be fearful too.
Xiao Yan could tell his plan immediately. He revealed a smile on his face, “Defending now and waiting for reinforcements.”
“It’s so weird. Why do I always meet opponents like you?”
As the Grand Moon Swordmaster heard this, he creased his brows. After that, he saw Xiao Yan laughing. But Xiao Yan revealed a fierce look in his eyes, “You are still unsure, aren’t you? I specialize in this kind of situation!”
As he said, tri-colored Fire Lotuses started to appear.
The Pure Yang Primordial Fire, Grand Sun Primordial Fire and Nanming Primordial fire formed the Yang Fire Lotus, while the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze, Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire and Nanming Primordial Fire formed the Yin Fire Lotus.
Each Fire Lotus consisted of three petals, and the two Lotuses were separated from each other. They formed a huge Yin-Yang Taiji Diagram. The Grand Moon Swordmaster and the others were squeezed in between of this diagram. As Yin and Yang revolved, a tremendous power was applied.
The Grand Moon Swordmaster was stunned. He could not unleash the full powers of his virtual entity. Streaks and streaks of gas gathered together to resist the powers of the Yin Yang Burning Heavens Formation.
Xiao Yan stepped on void space and he appeared above them. The Cosmic Form on top of him started to shout.
The Pure Yang Primordial fire spread and the Jade Green Dragon, Great White Tiger, Blood Red Sparrow and the Xuanwu appeared.
The sky seemed to open a hole, and the Twenty-Eight Mansions seemed to be shining subtly. They were divided in four directions, with seven mansions in each direction.
Although Xiao Yan did not really guide the powers of the Twenty-Eight Mansions to supplement his own powers, his physical martial arts mind resonated with the Twenty-Eight Mansions.
Above Xiao Yan’s Cosmic Form, a light projection shook, converting into an illusory cosmo. In this cosmo, the radiances of the Twenty-Eight Mansions were eye-blinding.
This was the consolidation of Xiao Yan’s physical martial arts into a real entity, which was earth-shaking.
In the cosmo, the Jade Green Dragon combined with the Seven Mansions of the Azure Dragon – the Horn Wood Serpent, the Neck Gold Dragon, the Root Earth Raccoon, the Room Sun Rabbit, the Heart Moon Fox, the Tail Fire Tiger and the Winnowing Basket Water Cheetah.
Whereas the Great White Tiger combined with the Seven Mansions of the White Tiger – the Legs Wood Wolf, the Bond Gold Canine, the Stomach Earth Pheasant, the Hairy Heard Sun Chicken, the Net Moon Crow, the Turtle Beak Fire Monkey and the Three Stars Water Ape.
The Blood Red Sparrow combined with the Seven Mansions of the Vermilion Bird – the Well Wood Tiger, the Ghost Gold Goat, the Willow Earth Roe, the Star Sun Horse, the Extended Net Moon Deer, the Wings Fire Snake and the Chariot Water Worm.
Lastly, the Xuanwu combined with the Seven Mansions of the Black Tortoise of the North – the Dipper Wood Xie, the Ox Gold Bull, the Girl Earth Bat, the Emptiness Sun Mouse, the Rooftop Moon Swallow, the Encampment Fire Pig and the Wall Water Yu.
Xiao Yan laughed coldly as he looked at the streaks of gas formed by the Grand Moon Swordmaster. His Cosmic Form returned into his body, but he was not keeping it. Rather, he combined it with his physical flesh temporarily.
Under the guidance of his physical martial arts mind, although Xiao Yan was not a pure physical martial arts artist, the combination of his Cosmic Form and his physical flesh allowed his powers to nourish his energy. This allowed his physical flesh to become extremely strong at this moment.
At the same time, because the Grand Moon Swordmaster only defended, the Divine Token of the Five Thrones also stopped defending. Rather, it injected its own spirituality into Xiao Yan’s body.
The energy that flowed in Xiao Yan’s body made him seemed hotter than the Sun in the sky. As his temperature reached its peak, Xiao Yan became more and more stable.
In the next moment, Xiao Yan lifted his right hand and slashed it towards the Grand Moon Swordmaster. The Twenty-Eight Mansions in the projection also crashed down!
