Chapter 881: Facing the Power-Destroying Catastrophe Again!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Through countless years of cultivation, the six mountain peaks of Mount Shu that represented the Mount Shu Six Passages of Sword had become true Sword Peaks, as the sword minds of countless sword cultivators had infused within the mountain peaks.
Regardless of their cultivations, the sword cultivators of the Mount Shu Sword Sect nourished the sword peaks that they were on as they converted the spiritual energy of the Heavens and Earth into their own sword minds.
Today, the six Sword Peaks rose from the ground together. The accumulated sword mind of the Shaoshang Sword Peak was the first to be released, as it was the first to be crushed. They surged into the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation.
As the Shaoshang Sword Peak was crushed and the sword mind of it infused with the formation, it would no longer cease to exist after this battle. If there were any more powerful cultivators from the Mount Shu Sword Sect who survived this crisis, they had to shift the mountain somewhere else and rebuild the Shaoshang Sword Peak. The fire of the Mount Shu Sword Sect would never stop burning as long as the sword mind of it was accumulated again.
And following the progression of the battle, the rest of the five sword peaks were already prepared. They were ready to release the sword minds and auras that they had cultivated to the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation.
The Sword World converted from the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation started to become clearer and realer than ever.
Even the Two Elements of Creation Formation was forced back continuously as the powers of the formation grew. Very soon, it would be unable to resist the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation.
“Zhu Yi, lend me your Higan Golden Bridge for a while.” Lin Feng was relaxed as he asked.
On Mount Yujing, a golden bridge landed, as if it was a bow that stretched across the entire sky. It landed within the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
Lin Feng laughed, “Even though I’m not fully compatible with it, it’ll still be useful.”
As the Higan Golden Bridge entered the formation, the powers of the Two Elements of Creation Formation also increased. This allowed the formation to suppress the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation.
The radiance supplied by the Shaoshang Sword Peak was slowly degraded, until it no longer existed.
The Cang Ming Swordmaster, who controlled the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation, remained expressionless. As he guided his sword spell, the Shaoze Sword Peak that had infused into the formation started to break down, converting into a huge amount of rocks that crashed towards the ground.
It was as if an invincible sword had been drawn out and its radiance that was injected into the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation resisted the suppression of the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
And on the other side, the Tiangang Swordmaster held the Saintly Celestial Sword and looked at Lin Feng silently. He did not talk, but attacked forward.
Lin Feng kept his left hand behind his back, while grabbing hold onto the Heaven-Destroying Sword with his right hand. As they clashed head on, they fought into void space. They seemed like two Gods of the universe that were fighting furiously, causing devastating changes in the universe.
Liang Pan and Zhu Hongwu felt a sense of pity as they looked at Mount Yujing in void space, shaking their heads.
Lin Feng’s Mount Yujing was suppressed there. For those who wanted to take advantage of this, they had to proceed with caution and not act recklessly.
“But in this way, he is destined not to be able to kill the Tiangang Swordmaster or the Saintly Celestial Sword. Even if he unleashes his natal magic treasure, he will only be able to win the Tiangang Swordmaster and the Saintly Celestial Sword. If he wanted to kill them, the Tiangang Swordmaster must be unwilling to leave until someone dies.”
Zhu Hongwu said in a deep voice, “Even if the Tiangang Swordmaster is killed by him, he will have to pay a huge price.”
Liang Pan nodded his head, “Not only is his Mount Yujing cautious of us, it is also wary of those from the Great Void Sect.”
“But in this battle, he can only make Mount Shu lose their face. He will not be able to achieve a straightforward victory, unless he has other ploys in mind.”
Liang Pan creased his brows, “It’s still the same question – why did he bring the battle to Mount Shu?”
Zhu Hongwu’s gaze focused, “Saintly Celestial Sword! His target is the Saintly Celestial Sword!”
“When they fought in void space, the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation was not there to drain Lin Feng’s powers. Thus, the Tiangang Swordmaster and Saintly Celestial Sword will be in a more precarious position than they are now. But even so, they will still be able to escape. If the Tiangang Swordmaster was willing to sacrifice himself, he could ensure the escape of the Saintly Celestial Sword. But if they came to Mount Shu, the Saintly Celestial Sword will have nowhere to run!”
“But, what is he really going to do? From what it seems now, even if the Saintly Celestial Sword loses, it will still be able to escape.”
Both Liang Pan and Zhu Hongwu were perplexed and could not solve this conundrum of theirs. At the same, the Tiangang Swordmaster was also confused over the same question. But to him, it was more pressing to focus on resisting Lin Feng’s incessant attacks.
The Mount Shu had already been on the losing end a couple of times. This time, there was no room for failure anymore.
A decisive look flashed across the face of the Tiangang Swordmaster. He wielded the Saintly Celestial Sword with his right hand and fought Lin Feng, while his left index finger straightened like a sword and pointed towards Lin Feng!
A streak of dim, black gas converted into a straight, black line, before shooting towards Lin Feng!
Five Decays of Heaven and Man, Power-Destroying Catastrophe!
Wherever the black gas went, the Heavens and Earth would collapse and welcome the arrival of the apocalypse. This outcome was irreversible.
As Lin Feng saw this, he laughed slightly and streaks of rainbow lights flashed across his virtual entity. They revolved around his body.
The black gas converted from the Power-Destroying Catastrophe penetrated Lin Feng’s body, but did not cause him any harm. It seemed as if Lin Feng was only a projection. This attack of the Tiangang Swordmaster struck nothing.
Everyone who watched this battle was stunned as they saw this scene.
If one was targeted by the Power-Destroying Catastrophe before it was unleashed, there was still a possibility to escape.
But once it was unleashed, it could not be avoided just by simply disappearing into void space. This Power-Destroying Catastrophe catalyzed the Five Decays of Heaven and Man in the enemy, causing an extremely destructive force.
At the same time, the person unleashing it would have to undergo the Power-Destroying Catastrophe at.
But the result now was that the Tiangang Swordmaster had undergone the Power-Destroying Catastrophe without inflicting it on Lin Feng.
The Tiangang Swordmaster stared at Lin Feng and saw the figure of Lin Feng subtly appearing in void space. He could clearly spot Lin Feng, but he could not sense him. It was as if Lin Feng’s projection did not exist.
During the Scramble for the Ying Sea two years ago, Lin Feng summoned Mount Yujing to avoid the Power-Destroying Catastrophe of the Golden Cicada Master, which was already very shocking to everyone.
Today, the Tiangang Swordmaster saw that Lin Feng was not on Mount Yujing, thus he decided to try this move. But who knew that Lin Feng could actually avoid the Power-Destroying Catastrophe by himself.
Lin Feng remained calm and the streaks of rainbow radiances around him disappeared before re-appearing in void space.
This was the Celestial Sect Teleportation Technique, which was understood by Lin Feng after he figured out the powers of the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree. It contained the miraculous powers of time and space, while infusing the way of the Heavens and Earth. Pure time and space changes wouldn’t be sufficient to avoid the Power-Destroying Catastrophe.
When he was in the Immortal Soul First Level, he could only employ this technique only with the help of the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree. But now that he had formed the virtual entity, he could use this Celestial Sect Teleportation Technique on his own. However, the only downside was that the Power-Destroying Catastrophe was very damaging, thus Lin Feng could only use it for a limited number of times in a set period of time.
But the Tiangang Swordmaster would not attack with the Power-Destroying Catastrophe anymore. Lin Feng unleashed the Celestial Sect Teleportation Technique to avoid his attack, but he resisted the Power-Destroying Catastrophe with his own might. Even if he could withstand the attack of the Power-Destroying Catastrophe, it would still have a negative impact on his powers.
Even for a cultivator in the Vipralopa Realm, he wouldn’t resist with the Power-Destroying Catastrophe to test whether he or the opponent was more capable of handling it. Although he could recover from it eventually, it would still impact on his battling abilities.
As he battled furiously, there was no time for his powers to be restored.
“This is only the fourth abhijna in the Grand Celestial World that is able to avoid the Power-Destroying Catastrophe.” The Tiangang Swordmaster turned dismal. “The only manual that has been passed down is only the Cheng Heaven Great Void Celestial Light, the last spell of the Great Void Nine Heavenly Spell.
The Tiangang Swordmaster believed that the abhijna of Lin Feng should be similar to the Cheng Heaven Great Void Celestial Light, meaning that it could not be unleashed continuously. But before he could confirm that or how many times Lin Feng could endure the Power-Destroying Catastrophe, he would not continue attacking with the Power-Destroying Catastrophe.
As they saw Lin Feng avoiding the Power-Destroying Catastrophe of the Tiangang Swordmaster, everyone was stunned for a moment. Following that, they became silent and looked at the Tiangang Swordmaster who was obviously hurt from undergoing the Power-Destroying Catastrophe.
In void space, the Tiangang Swordmaster did not speak or let out any noise. But his supernatural awareness jerked in the Heavens and Earth, as if the luminaries had exploded.
He combined with the Saintly Celestial Sword, converting into a streak of flowing light that landed towards Mount Shu.
Lin Feng lowered his head to look at the last area of rust on the Heaven-Destroying Sword. In his mind, the rewards attained from the previous three clashes with the Saintly Celestial Sword and Saintly Celestial Sword Qi flashed across. He nodded his head, “I am 80% confident, which should be enough.”
At this point, besides the Shaoshang Sword Peak and the Shaoze Sword Peak, the Cang Ming Swordmaster crushed the Grand Moon Sword Peak and Guanchong Sword Peak. The formation stance of the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation became more ferocious and the formation continued to resist the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
As the sword of the Tiangang Swordmaster landed, the Two Elements of Creation Formation created a path for it under Lin Feng’s command. This allowed the Tiangang Swordmaster and Saintly Celestial Sword to return to Mount Shu.
At the first instant, the Cang Ming Swordmaster passed control of the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation to the Tiangang Swordmaster.
The Saintly Celestial Sword was guided once again, causing the momentum of the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation to change. Sword radiances shot into the sky and the Sword World expanded, as if it controlled the entire Heavens and Earth.
The Greater World and the Divine Lands were about to be converted into Sword Worlds at this point.
Under the control of the Saintly Celestial Sword, the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword was able to summon its powers to the extreme!
Initially, the Sword Peaks crushed one by one. But now, the remaining Lixiong and Shaoyang Sword Peaks crushed together and two streaks of bright rays were shot into the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation.
The powers of the sword formation were boosted. Under the supplement of the powers of the sword formation, the powers of the Saintly Celestial Sword ballooned too.
The Tiangang Swordmaster swung the Saintly Celestial Sword and the entire Heavens and Earth converted into formless sword radiances, that stabbed towards Lin Feng.
Ever since they started fighting, an unprecedented brutal force was finally unleashed.
This was the brutal force that destroyed the Blood River Daoist and the Immemorial Taotie!
It didn’t even appear during the War of the Two Worlds 4600 years ago. The last time it appeared was more than 10 thousand years ago.
But now, it reappeared in the world!
As Lin Feng saw this scene, he nodded his head slightly, “It is indeed brilliant.”
“However, you will be unable to escape this time!”
