Chapter 684 – Clash of Lightning (2)
“Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique? Don’t even think about it, brat!”
“That technique is our sect’s top technique, and the oldest divine technique of Lightning in the Cang Ocean.”
The three Emperors had strong reactions. Zhao Feng’s request was ridiculous and almost made them roar out in anger.
“Zhao Feng, you don’t have a unique Lightning Spiritual Body, so the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique won’t even be of much use to you,” the female in multi-colored lightning smiled.
Zhao Feng knew that point as well. Even the Wind Lightning Emperor wasn’t able to cultivate the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique when he was in the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect, which is why he had to go down another path and ended up comprehending the Dao of Wind Lightning.
However, Zhao Feng knew one thing for sure; the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique’s foundation was better than the Wind Lightning Inheritance’s.
The only problem was that the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique had too high of a requirement on body type. Usually, there was only one suitable genius every ten thousand years. However, once someone who did have the unique Lightning Spiritual Body came along and was able to cultivate the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique, their strength would increase dramatically, and they would be able to counter all Lightning techniques.
Lei Zhen had broken through to the late-stage Great Origin Core Realm, and the aura of Lightning radiating from him was even stronger.
“In terms of practical use, the Wind Lightning Inheritance surpasses the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique. That and the Demigod’s head will be my bet,” Zhao Feng said.
Everyone understood; this was a clash of reason. Since Zhao Feng would have to hand over the Wind Lightning Inheritance and the Demigod’s head if he lost, then the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect needed to place a bet of equal value, and Zhao Feng directly asked for the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique, the foundation of the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect.
The foundation of my Wind Lightning Inheritance isn’t strong enough. If I can get the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique… that and the Demigod’s head may push it to another level, Zhao Feng had his plans.
Although the Wind Lightning Inheritance was strong, there was still a difference between it and the Purple Saint Inheritance, the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique, and some of the other techniques of Sacred Lords. The Wind Lightning Inheritance would only allow Zhao Feng to reach the peak Emperor level, and he might barely manage to touch the level of the Mystic Light Realm, whereas the Purple Saint Inheritance and the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique could be cultivated to the Demigod level and even touch the Heavenly Divine Realm.
“If we don’t agree to his bet, then that brat won’t fight,” the three Emperors from the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect started to discuss. Overall, the Wind Lightning Inheritance and the Demigod’s head were enough to be wagered against the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique.
After all, the Wind Lightning Inheritance created the fastest Emperor, and even the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique wasn’t as fast compared to it, while the Demigod’s head was quite valuable to the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect.
“Okay, we agree,” the Dark Lightning Emperor nodded his head seriously.
In order to make sure Zhao Feng didn’t play any tricks, the Dark Lightning Emperor asked several Emperors to be witness. The Demigod’s head and the Wind Lightning Inheritance was basically in their hands.
Zhao Feng only smiled and didn’t say anything.
A while later, on the True King Stage of the main Spiritual Peak, Zhao Feng and Lei Zhen stood and faced each other.
Several neutral Emperors were the judges. There were dozens of Kings and Emperors watching this battle, which had become the center of attention for the entire True Martial Sacred Lands.
“Zhao Feng, according to the bet, you must use the Wind Lightning Inheritance to win. If you use any other methods like your eye-bloodline, you lose,” an Emperor-level judge said.
“Understood,” Zhao Feng nodded his head.
If they didn’t restrict him, his Eye Intent alone could defeat Lei Zhen. The three Emperors from the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect obviously saw that Zhao Feng’s soul was at least at the same level as a King.
“Zhao Feng, your Wind Lightning Inheritance is useless against me,” Lei Zhen licked his lips.
They had fought a short fight in the Demigod Forgotten Garden. Zhao Feng had used his half-step King Intent and was still at a slight disadvantage even though Lei Zhen didn’t use all his strength.
“We’ll see,” Zhao Feng remained emotionless.
As soon as the words sounded, two figures moved at almost the same time.
A scarlet figure and a five-colored figure sped around the True King Stage.
Their speed had reached a peak. People who cultivated the Dao of Lightning all specialized in speed, and almost no one under the Void God Realm was able to clearly see how the two moved.
“Zhao Feng’s speed is still a bit faster,” the Divine Senses around the True King Stage could see it clearly.
The Wind Lightning Inheritance had merged the Dao of Wind and the Dao of Lightning together, so it had unparalleled speed.
Zhao Feng unleashed the first attack as he sent a scarlet-and-purple-colored claw of Wind Lightning over. It was several hundred yards wide and radiated an aura of Destruction.
“Petty tricks!” Lei Zhen made no signs of dodging. A bright yellow lightning carving appeared over him, forming a suit of lightning armor.
The claw of Wind Lightning caused several explosions as it landed on Lei Zhen. The bright yellow armor of lightning cracked a little bit.
“Hahaha, it’s useless; my Lightning Spiritual Body and my Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique counters all lightning in the world!” Lei Zhen stood still, and he was unharmed.
Hmm? Zhao Feng realized that part of the power of Lightning in his attack was absorbed by Lei Zhen. That meant that, instead of injuring Lei Zhen, his attack had very likely increased the opponent’s strength instead.
“Ten Thousand Thunderous Lightning!” Lei Zhen roared as he spread his arms, and bolts of multi-colored lightning descended from the sky, causing Heaven and Earth to flash.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Thousands of bolts shot toward Zhao Feng.
“The Lightning Spiritual Body can summon so much lightning! How strong!” some disciples of the Mystic True Sacred Clan were stunned. How could anyone below the Void God Realm clash with this?
“Wind Lightning Hundred Change!” Zhao Feng’s body released a bright ball of lightning.
Shua! Shua! Shua~~~~!
In an instant, a hundred figures of Zhao Feng spread out across the stage. The Ten Thousand Thunderous Lightning lost track of Zhao Feng’s true body.
Although the Ten Thousand Thunder Lightning was a wide-range attack and could almost threaten Kings when gathered together, a single bolt or two of lightning couldn’t harm Zhao Feng’s true body.
Bam! Bam! Bam!
The figures on the True King Stage were destroyed, but a technique like the Ten Thousand Thunderous Lightning used a lot of energy, so it couldn’t be used continuously.
Shua! Shua! Shua!
Ten figures of Zhao Feng suddenly charged toward Lei Zhen.
“It’s coming!” Lei Zhen’s lips curled up. It didn’t matter whether the true body was hidden amongst the ten.
“All of you shall remain here!” a light flashed across Lei Zhen’s eyes as he suddenly gripped the giant sword on his back.
Several thousand arcs of lightning landed on the giant sword and formed a terrifying amount of power.
“Lightning Summoning Sword Technique!”
“It’s that forbidden sword technique!?”
Some Void God Realm Kings around the True King Stage exclaimed. The Lightning Summoning Sword Technique was just what the name suggested – it summoned the limitless power of Lightning from Heaven and Earth, then condensed it onto the sword. It could unleash power up to ten times stronger than one’s own power.
This sword technique was extremely dangerous, and it could result in being blown to bits by lightning.
Bam! Boom! Boom!
Lightning gathered in the sky above the True King Stage, and there was an aura of doom as all of the lightning condensed onto the sword.
“The power of that sword is comparable to the all-out attack of a King.”
“No – it’s even stronger than normal Kings.”
The limitless power of Lightning formed a storm that instantly covered half the True King Stage.
Boom! Boom! Bam!
Everything in sight was replaced by a brilliant flash of light, and some of the spectating disciples could no longer see or hear anything.
“Zhao Feng’s true body was also caught by it,” the Divine Senses of some Emperors could clearly see what happened. All ten figures were fake, but Zhao Feng’s true body was waiting nearby.
The ten figures were instantly destroyed, and Zhao Feng’s true body was also enveloped by the attack.
“Hmm!?” some Void God Realm Kings exclaimed. Zhao Feng was killed so easily?
“He’s in the air!” some Emperors lightly exclaimed.
Lightning Wings Flying Technique!
A dreamy and blurry light flew by, and it seemed to have the ability to break through space as it flew into the air. It wasn’t just Wind and Lightning anymore, it now also involved the laws of Space.
A purple-haired male with wings made of Wind and Lightning behind him floated above Lei Zhen.
“How is this possible…!?” Lei Zhen exclaimed. He had just finished his attack, and his body was currently weak. Furthermore, after the lightning in the sky was absorbed by the giant sword, there was a flaw there, and Zhao Feng had appeared there precisely.
“Scarlet Destruction Wind Lightning!”
Zhao Feng’s wings fluttered.
A raging surge of scarlet-colored Wind Lightning condensed into a punch and landed on Lei Zhen.
Lei Zhen screamed as he was sent flying. His armor of lightning shattered, and scarlet flames of Wind Lightning burned across his body. The Scarlet Destruction Wind Lightning contained a burning effect.
Lei Zhen spat out a mouthful of blood, and he sat down on the ground as the Scarlet Destruction Wind Lightning raged across his body.
His body was now burnt black. If it weren’t for the fact that he had a Lightning Spiritual Body and cultivated the Five-Elemental Ten Thousand Lightning Technique… any other half-step King would have been burnt into dust.
“Scarlet Destruction Wind Lightning!”
“That brat’s actually cultivated the Scarlet Destruction Wind Lightning to such a level!? And he’s managed to resolve the dispute between the elements?”
The expressions of the three Ten Thousand Lightning Sect Emperors changed dramatically.
Zhao Feng’s Scarlet Destruction Wind Lightning was unexpectedly strong. It had far surpassed the level when he was in the Demigod Forgotten Garden. They didn’t know that Zhao Feng had obtained the Dragon Flaming Wine and the Lightning Cloud Wine from the Demigod’s wine cellar.
On top of that, the Scarlet Destruction Wind Lightning was being controlled perfectly. Even the Wind Lightning Emperor wasn’t able to do that when he was at this stage.
Hmph, my Scarlet Destruction Wind Lightning has already surpassed the Wind Lightning Emperor’s when he was at this cultivation level, a smile of mockery appeared on Zhao Feng’s face.
His Scarlet Destruction Wind Lightning had the Ancient Dream Realm aura merged into it, and the flaming Destruction power was closer to its original essence. Not only was it more stable, it was also stronger.
The biggest mistake that the Ten Thousand Lightning Sect made was that they measured Zhao Feng by the Wind Lightning Emperor’s standards.
As Zhao Feng said, he had surpassed his martial ancestors.
