Chapter 940: Facing Three Demons at Once
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The Kun Peng Pavilion was something Lin Feng bestowed to Shi Tianhao when he had just formed his nascent soul. While it was a Gestation level magic treasure, its foundations were strong. After all, it was formed from the blood and flesh of an Undying Demon Soul Third Level Immemorial Kun Peng.
With this foundation, he further inserted a special stone and the remains of the Heavenly Wind Treasure Fan.
This not only made the Kun Peng Pavilion into a treasure with immense potential, but also made it devastatingly powerful. It was much more powerful than other magic treasures of the same level and was one of the few the Gestation level magic treasure that could challenge magic treasures of higher levels.
After Shi Tianhao himself had entered the Immortal Soul stage, his powers increased massively. As the Kun Peng Pavilion did not reach the Metaplasia stage, the increase of its powers could not compare to the increase in its master’s powers.
Even if the Immemorial Kun Peng himself was revived and returned to his peak form, Shi Tianhao would still have a fighting chance against him.
However, this did not mean that the Kun Peng Pavilion was useless. After Shi Tianhao reached the Immortal Soul stage, he could finally control the magic treasure personally and freely.
At this moment, the Kun Peng Pavilion turned into a ray of black light and went straight into Shi Tianhao’s head and then through his entire body.
Mini explosions came from the pores all over Shi Tianhao’s body as a powerful, vital energy steamed off him. It was unlike the burning, red light of normal cultivators. Instead, a light golden fog enveloped his entire body.
In the light golden fog, the shadows of numerous ferocious beasts rose and fell likes waves. The most eye-catching one was a gigantic Kun Peng that alternated between its ‘Kun’ (large fish/Leviathan) and ‘Peng’ (roc) forms.
When the shadow of the Kun Peng sank, it took the shape of a humongous fish as it saw in the sea of light.
Facing against the Lu Yuan Grand Sage, which was stronger than both the Fengxi Grand Sage and the Nine Infants Grand Sage, Shi Tianhao chose to plant the entire Kun Peng Pavilion into his body, bringing his physical strength to the next level. As he no longer had a definite advantage in terms of spell, the best way to beat the Lu Yuan Grand Sage was through a physical brawl.
Shi Tianhao roared and brandished the Stone Sword in his hand. While it was roundish and not sharp, the Stone Sword, whose edge felt as if it could not be any sharper, appeared before the Lu Yuan Grand Sage in an instant.
A serious look crossed the Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s face. He was unafraid of similarly skilled cultivators encircling him in an attack as long as they attacked with spells and mana. However, when similarly-skilled or more powerful opponents challenged him to a physical fight, then he may have difficulties. All he could do was to think of ways to flee.
Today, as his opponent was Shi Tianhao, he did not consider fleeing. However, he became much more serious.
Without needing to exchange blows, he could sense with his supernatural awareness that Shi Tianhao appeared to have a universe within him. It was as if he could tap on unlimited power and compared to just now, he appeared much more powerful.
Even the Lu Yuan Grand Sage had to deal with Shi Tianhao seriously now.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage narrowed his eyes as he saw a layer of light over Shi Tianhao’s sword. It brimmed with a power that was like the annihilation of all creations, a powerful energy that cut everything else off. It was Shi Tianhao’s Final Holy Light.
This Holy Light was something that the Lu Yuan Grand Sage was unable to reflect. Faced with this sword, a sense of danger rose in his heart. His gigantic form shrunk suddenly, as if he had turned into a speck of dust, as he dodged Shi Tianhao’s sword.
With the upper hand, Shi Tianhao showed no mercy. With his sword in hand, he lunged at the Lu Yuan Grand Sage again and again.
Wang Lin looked at the Lu Yuan Grand Sage and smiled slightly. He did not join Shi Tianhao in encircling the Lu Yuan Grand Sage for fear that his moves may be copied by his Ten Thousand Mirror Appearances. This did not mean that he was doing nothing.
The white-haired youth put his hands behind his back as he calmly descended towards the mountain that was wrapped by the Heaven-Carrying Ants.
“Such nerve!” The Lu Yuan Grand Sage roared. He opened his mouth and shot out a ray of white light as he conjured up a fearsome wind and summoned a huge amount of magnetic light. With these attacks, he attempted to blast them at Wang Lin.
With the Kun Peng Pavilion inside him, Wang Lin’s physical strength increased and he could battle against the Lu Yuan Grand Sage. However, he was unable to use his other spells.
Furthermore, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage had other attacks other than his Ten Thousand Mirror Appearances. As he revealed his true form in his attack against Shi Tianhao, he also used his other attacks against him.
However, when Wang Lin sought to take this advantage to loot, he had no choice but to use his attack against Wang Lin.
Originally, he was advantaged in his battle against Shi Tianhao. However, the tides of the battle quickly changed. Shi Tianhao quickly regained the upper hand, which infuriated the Lu Yuan Grand Sage to no end.
He stared coldly at Wang Lin and said, “What a cunning fellow!”
Wang Lin looked at him calmly and smiled coldly.
In a real battle, everything would move quickly and many elements would change in the blink of an eye. Many times, it was not just a simple fight between spells and mana. Other factors, such as environment, fighting spirit, battle awareness and reaction time, all played a part. The psychological state of both combatants was important too.
Furthermore, it was also important to know the enemy and know oneself, particularly with respect to the strengths and weaknesses of each mantra and spell.
Under Lin Feng’s many disciples, Wang Lin was the pure realist. When Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi, Shi Tianhao and others met an enemy of a similar stage, they could not resist to use their strongest moves against their enemies’ strongest moves to see who was the stronger one.
However, Wang Lin would rarely be caught in such a situation. He only had one belief: the only good enemy was a dead enemy.
At this moment, Wang Lin was rather relaxed as he dodged the Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s attack. Then, he walked towards the Heaven-Carrying Ant. As he helped to alleviate some of Shi Tianhao’s pressure, he also managed to seize the initiative.
His gaze was fixed on the Lu Yuan Grand Sage. The moment his foe showed a sign of weakness, he would summon the thunders with Shi Tianhao to strike him.
While he did not know whether the Lu Yuan Grand Sage knew of his intent, both Shi Tianhao and Wang Lin knew, in their hearts, that in this Outer Realm the Lu Yuan Grand Sage was not the only powerful demon present. The Yu’ao Dragon King and the Zu’e Grand Sage were still here.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage had survived hundreds of battles, both big and small. In fact, he had more battles under his belt than Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao combined. How could he not know of Wang Lin’s intentions?
As their battle became more ferocious, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s form suddenly twisted as he turned into a ray of light. He avoided Shi Tianhao’s slash and in the blink of an eye, he was before Shi Tianhao as he clawed towards his heart!
Shi Tianhao was shocked but not afraid. The pores on his body trembled and in flash of lightning and fire, he took a step back, avoiding the attack of the Lu Yuan Grand Sage. Then, he took half a step forwards as his empty left hand curled into a fist and he punched out towards the Lu Yuan Grand Sage!
In that punch, it was like the hammer of a god crashing down on its target. In the sea of light next to him, the many ferocious beasts roared simultaneously into the sky.
The Tao Tie turned into the element of Earth, the Tao Wu turned into the element of Fire, the Hun Dun turned into the element of Wind and the Qiong Qi turned into the element of Water. As the combined powers of all four beasts surged, the power of the four elements congregated on his punch.
That one punch made the entire Outer Realm tremble. As the void collapsed around them, Earth, Water, Fire and Wind erupted all around them. Endless amount of energy was created and then destroyed.
With the four elements as foundation, Shi Tianhao was able to pull off the Heavenly Hammer of the Eight Trigrams. Its energy increased exponentially and destroyed itself non-stop. A violent, frenzied energy that was akin to nuclear fission manifested as it increased almost limitlessly.
It was the most powerful Martial Way move Shi Tianhao learned through Lin Feng, the Four Appearances Doomsday Hammer!
As the most powerful Martial Way cultivator under Lin Feng, Shi Tianhao’s Four Appearances Doomsday Hammer was also the most powerful physical attack of the Celestial Sect of Wonders!
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s faced darkened slightly but soon he calmed himself down. He did not retreat but instead, he lashed out with his claw against the Four Appearances Doomsday Hammer. The loser of this exchange of blows was the Undying Demon Soul Third Level Lu Yuan Grand Sage, whose entire claw became caked in blood!
However, he was prepared for that. At the same time, he opened his mouth and a frenzied white light shot out from his blood-red mouth in the direction of Shi Tianhao!
Even with Shi Tianhao’s powerful frame, he was injured from this carefully-planned sucker punch of the Lu Yuan Grand Sage.
Taking this opportunity, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s figure flashed as he created distance between Shi Tianhao and himself. Now, he lunged towards Wang Lin!
If not for the black mountain and the Heaven-Carrying Ants, he would surely defeat Shi Tianhao, who was the bigger threat, first and ignore Wang Lin completely. With the Ten Thousand Mirror Appearances, he was not scared of a combined attack from Shi Tianhao and Wang Lin.
However, now, he planned to kill the physical-weak Wang Lin who he could have taken care of easily with his Ten Thousand Mirror Appearances first before coming back to Shi Tianhao.
Looking at the situation, Wang Lin was not afraid. Instead, he laughed.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s heart missed a beat as he felt that something was amiss. Suddenly, he felt a mystical energy coming from Shi Tianhao, who was behind him. It was as if everything was being reborn and re-created from the very beginning.
Without any delay, Shi Tianhao lunged with his sword at the Lu Yuan Grand Sage once more!
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage was dumbfounded. “The b*stard’s Holy Light of Creation has two uses?! He can’t be carrying two Holy Lights of Creation at the same time, right?”
While it was difficult, it was possible to steal or transplant a Holy Light of Creation. The Lu Yuan Grand Sage knew this. However, the precondition was that the receiver must not have a Holy Light of Creation on him.
At this point, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage could only watch helplessly as Wang Lin went about with what he was doing. He had no choice but to turn around to deal with Shi Tianhao. If not, he would have more holes than a block of Swiss cheese.
What made him more depressed was the fact that the advantage he managed to reclaim was snatched away from him right before his eyes. In other words, he injured his claw for nothing.
At that moment, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage, Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao all felt something. They noticed the void in the distance opening and two giant figures emerging from it. One was clouded by a Dragon Awe Auspicious Cloud and the other one was enveloped by black fog.
The newcomers were the Yu’ao Dragon King and the Zu’e Grand Sage. They probably planned to let the Lu Yuan Grand Sage, Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao wear each other. However, right now, they could not afford to wait anymore.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage battled one-on-two and was at a disadvantage. It was likely that soon, he would control his rage and greed and abandon the treasures to live.
Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao looked at each other and nodded their heads. “They are finally here.”
Now, they had to face the Lu Yuan Grand Sage, the Yu’ao Dragon King and the Zu’e Grand Sage, all of whom were in the Undying Demon Soul Third Level.
