Chapter 836: Nine Steps Invincible
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
Royal Prince Wen Yu muttered, “It seems like he has seen through all of Lilian Lingyu’s skills and moves in just nine steps. What a terrifying ability.”
The other experts tensed their hearts. Nine steps were all it took for Zhong Yue to see through an expert like them. In just one strike, he shattered Lilian Lingyu’s skills and broke through her defenses, it was as if he had an intimate understanding of all of her abilities!
Even though Yin Fanxuan was able to do the same, they wouldn’t be this surprised. For a Saint Spirit like her, it was only natural for Yin Fanxuan to see through Lilian Lingyu’s skills, even the future projection of the skills she would cultivate. Moreover, they had already fought before.
However, this was the first time Zhong Yue had met Lilian Lingyu, the first time they battled and in just nine steps, he had comprehended her skills and moves, then proceeded in inflicting grave injuries to her. This was just too scary for the experts to believe.
It basically meant that Zhong Yue has an unimaginably powerful divinatory calculation technique with him!
Rays flashed across Luwang’s eyes, he stepped forth and swung his divine spear like a soaring dragon. He was now much stronger than before. To his level, every small increment in power was something to rejoice; yet, he had seen great improvements recently!
The Luli Clan and Diming Clan were now at war, Lu Wang had also participated in the war and through the baptism of the endless battles, it was only natural to see a leap in his prowess!
He wielded the spear like a dragon while the Innate Kui Water Qi formed into powerful water dragons that surged and roared around him.
He had his own plan. Although Zhong Yue had a strong divinatory technique, he too has a clear understanding of Zhong Yue’s capabilities.
With his improved prowess now, he had the confidence to defeat Zhong Yue!
As Lu Wang lunged forward, and Zhong Yue stepped back.
Lu Wang was pressuring forward, his divine spear grew stronger and his aura turning even more domineering!
“[Water Dragon Roars]!”
As his skill was unleashed, Zhong Yue stopped at the fourth step, he raised his hand like a knife and slashed down at the dragon head. The water dragon was struck back into its original spear form and fell toward the ground.
Then, Zhong Yue opened his hand and the five innate Qis, the Yin, Yang, Celestial, Demon, Lightning, flowed out of his fingers. Then, he flicked five times on the falling spear, causing the spear to suddenly turned back into the water dragon’s head that gnawed back at Lu Wang!
Lu wang was pushed back and crashed to the ground by his own skill, with his body perforated by numerous bloody holes.
Zhong Yue stopped and never came forward to deliver the killing blow.
“Four steps.” Rays flashed across Royal Prince Wen Yu’s eyes as he muttered, “This time it’s only four steps! He took four steps to see through Lu Wang’s flaw!”
The experts were shocked, it was nine steps before, and now four, this Mister Yi was really a terrifyingly strong opponent.
Even Yin Fanxuan was also shocked, she could see more than the experts. The nine steps Zhong Yue took consisted of deep attainment in it. It could even be said as a skill. The nine steps contained abstrusities of endless changes, making it nearly impossible to predict his next step.
After the nine steps, his momentum would reach its peak and with it, he would be able to easily defeat his opponent.
However, that wasn’t the most terrifying part of it. What was most terrifying was the divinatory technique that allowed him to see through his opponents in just a mere nine steps!
He only took four steps to defeat Lu Wang because he had fought with Lu Wang before , Yin Fanxuan thought.
Wu Qingqing winked her eyes with a smile, “Brother-in-law, what technique is this?”
Zhong Yue smiled, “A little trick that I created in my free time. It’s a skill called the [Nine Step Plough Cracker], there are only nine steps in it. If you can force me to take the tenth step, I’ll have to change throw this skill away.”
[Nine Step Plough Cracker]? A self-created skill? The experts were shocked, they thought, He is indeed worthy, a reincarnated god like him sure has a strong foundation, even a random skill he has created in his free time is this amusing.
Compared to the past, Zhong Yue’s prowess saw a huge leap. Back when he was in the Luli Clan and fought with Lu Wang, he was strong but not strong enough to easily defeat Lu Wang and the like.
Lilian Lingyu wasn’t any weaker than Lu Wang, the experts like them were already at the limit of the Deity level. There wasn’t much room left for improvement without breaking through to the next level, any single increment in prowess was incredibly rare and precious!
However, this rule that restricted the experts didn’t apply to Zhong Yue at all. To him, he still had much room for improvement.
The meeting with Feng Xiaozhong had given him a glimpse into the many unrevealed secrets in the path of cultivation—the limitless secret realms in the mortal body!
Even though he wasn’t as crazy as Feng Xiaozhong who tried to open all of the secret realms or use his own mortal body and Yuan Shen as research specimens, Zhong Yue was still much stronger in every aspect than Lilian Lingyu and the rest.
In addition to the [One Fission Mystic Art] imparted to him by Feng Xiaozhong, he was able to form a 100,000 incarnations of himself. With these incarnations helping him in his Yin and Yang divinatory calculation technique, he was able to see through the skills and moves of his opponents easily.
He took nine steps to reach invincibility, he had seen through Lilian Lingyu’s skills and defeated her in one strike.
When fighting with Lu Wang who was now stronger, he took only four steps to as he has already knew Lu Wang’s skills and moves from the last battle they had.
The [Nine Step Plough Cracker] was a skill borne from his [God Slaying Three Styles]’s [Sun Burst]. It was more exquisite than the [Sun Burst] and relied much more on the divinatory calculation technique. Although it was cast through his hands, it was the saber will of the [Sun Burst] that was imbued in it.
He fought Lu Wang with a knifehand hidden with the saber will, the five times he flicked his fingers on the spear resembled five saber slashes.
However, in actuality, when strictly comparing cultivation, Zhong Yue was actually a fine line beneath than Lu Wang and the others.
The Deity level was also known as the Pure Yang State. There were three types of Pure Yang, the Pure Yang mortal body, Pure Yang Yuan Shen, and Pure Yang Dao. For the ordinary gods, as long as they cultivated the Pure Yang Yuan Shen and Pure Yang Dao, they would be considered at the peak of the Deity level already.
But for the likes of Lu Wang, they had cultivated all three of the Pure Yang states. Some had even taken it a level higher and cultivated the innate mortal body, innate Yuan Shen, and innate Dao!
Zhong Yue was still relatively new to the level of Deity when compared to Lu wang and the rest. Among the six innate Daos he cultivated, only the Innate Tai Yang Dao from Li Yang’s Dao Imparting Innate Core had been fully fused with his Innate Tai Yang Qi.
He still had to cultivate the five innate Dao, Tai Yin, Celestial, Demon, Changes, and Lightning before he was confident in saying that he had achieved the peak of the Deity level.
Thankfully, for all these years of hardwork, Zhong Yue was on the verge of successfully cultivating the five innate Dao.
Xiang Zungong stepped forward, he smiled, “Brother-in-… Mister Yi, please!”
“You’re welcome!” Zhong Yue laughed.
Xiang Zungong roared and cast out of his Zhuxiang True Form rightaway from the start of the battle. He went all out in his attacks as he tried to break through Zhong Yue’s [Nine Step Plough Cracker] and force Zhong Yue to take the tenth step!
Zhong Yue moved back like an arrow drawn on a full bow. The further back he retreated, the greater the potential that was stored in his body. Once he took the ninth and last step, his aura was already brimming at its peak!
Xiang Zungong’s face changed drastically, it felt like he was confronting a savage primordial beast, Zhong Yue’s aura was far too dominating to stand with. Thus, he had to quickly retreat to avoid Zhong Yue’s attack. He figured that Zhong Yue would then lose his momentum, giving him the chance to break the chain of Zhong Yue’s [Nine Step Plough Cracker].
It was a good plan in theory, but it didn’t work out as he had planned. Just right when he took the steps back, Zhong Yue bolted out like an arrow; not only did his aura not diminish, it surged higher as he pushed forward. Xian Zungong was left with little time to evade Zhong Yue’s rush and could only confront him in frontal combat.
Accompanied by a loud explosion from the clash, Xiang Zungong was blasted out into the sky!
“Nine steps again!”
The experts’ faces changed drastically, even the Yinkang Clan demon gods and the gods that followed the young experts here were no exception.
It took only nine steps for Zhong Yue to reach invincibility!
Zhong Yue’s clothes that were fluttering vigorously slowly settled.
“Let me break your nine steps!” Pan Xu stepped up, he cast out his three-headed Panhu form and burst out his skills. He was three times faster than the others and his attacks rained like a storm toward Zhong Yue.
But just seconds later, Pan Xu was seen stepping back with blood dripping down the corner of his mouth and his face filled with shock and anger.
“Nine steps again!” A Creator exclaimed in shock.
“My son-in-law!” Yinkang Clan Master Yin Fukang laughed happily with pride radiating across his face as he bragged to the gods around, “Our Yinkang Clan’s son-in-law! The best I’ve chosen myself!”
“Husband, try to be humble a little.” Yin Fukang’s wife whispered beside him.
Yin Fukang immediately smiled, “Yes, yes, you are right.” As he said, he raised his voice and shouted, “My son-in-law! Your mother-in-law asked you to be humble a little, don’t keep beating them with the same skill, at least leave them with some face!”
Zhong Yue was smiled wordlessly, he said, “People, other than the [Nine Step Plough Cracker], I still have some other skills in hands. Does anyone still want to try?”
Wu Qingqing sighed, she said helplessly, “I think not. Even if I can beat your other skills, I will still lose to your nine steps.”
“I can force Mister Yi into taking the tenth step.” Rays flashed across Royal Prince Wen Yu’s eyes as he smiled, “But it’s not the title of ‘The Strongest Deity’ that I seek much, I do not want to offend Mister Yi for a mere title.”
Zhong Yue startled, then he replied, “You’re welcome, Your Highness.”
Royal Prince Wendao smiled and continued, “My poor little brother Wen Chang died in the hands of the Xian Tian Palace, but I know it has nothing to do with Mister Yi. Then, my elder brother Wen Dao died in the hands of Luli Clan, I too know it has nothing to do with you. Mister Yi, if a lord you have pledged your loyalty to and the power you serve does not value you, why do you even still continue to mistreat yourself under the Xian Tian Palace? I do not think too highly of myself, but the least I can do, is to sincerely offer Mister Yi a secured and valued position in the Heaven Court.”
The experts were shocked, the true motive behind Royal Prince Wen Yu’s words was clear as crystal. He was willing to abandon the fight for the title as long as Zhong Yue would join the Heaven Court, he clearly valued Zhong Yue’s talent more than the title itself!
And Zhong Yue’s status as the Yinkang princess’s husband, as long as he picked a side, the monarch race Yinkang Clan would stand alongside with him!
All of a sudden, Yang Changsheng of the Zhongyang Clan said, “Mister Yi, our Zhongyang Clan has unintentionally offended you in the Luli Clan’s territory, I hope Mister Yi can forgive us for that. Our clan is a sovereign race with five reigns of Heavenly Monarchs in the Earth Order Era. We have the Imperial Monarchs’ cultivation techniques with us and also five Imperial Monarch-leveled weapons that helped guarding our clan’s fate. I wonder, if I have the pleasure to welcome and tour Mister Yi around in our Zhongyang Clan? To study the cultivation techniques and comprehend the monarch weapons.”
Lu Wang suppressed his wounds, he strode forward and laughed, “The Imperial Monarch cultivation techniques of your Zhongyang Clan is flawed, the Six Paths Reincarnations isn’t incorporated in them, there are only Five Paths in it; so were the same with your monarch weapons. Mister Yi, our Luli Clan’s monarch weapon has the completed Six Paths Reincarnations contained in it! Furthermore…”
He paused for a second and continued with a smile, “My sister is also kind of missing Mister Yi already.”
Yin Fanxuan gave a cold sneer and beads of cold sweat instantly began to roll down Lu Wang’s forehead, he frowned and quietly comforted himself, “Ever since Mister Yi’s departure, my sister has been thinking of you a lot more. If Mister you can return and visit the Luli Clan again, she will definitely be delighted.”
