Chapter 1401: Have A Taste Of My Sword Formation
Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
Boom boom boom!!
A strong explosion that was like a thousand bombs going off occurred. Waves of aura and forces swept through the entire platform, directly towards the nine heavens and ten grounds.
In the vast and extensive waves of aura, onlookers could only see two flickers speedily retreating backward. Only after having retreated a few hundred meters to the edges of the platform did they stop.
What was this?
They were actually evenly matched.
Ju Mo and Su Mo were both pushed back by the force of their collision a few hundred meters. The exchange between them meant that they were equally matched and the winner or loser could not be determined.
“My god! Su Mo actually managed to block Ju Mo’s fist!”
“Not only did he block it, but they are evenly matched!”
“How is this possible? Su Mo’s strength is actually comparable to Ju Mo’s?””
“No wonder he is ranked first on the True Sage Board! He is only a Rank 6 Martial Emperor! But his power is that of a Rank 9 Martial emperor!”
The crowd was in an uproar as they buzzed among themselves. Everyone was shocked by Su Mo’s strength.
To be able to withstand Ju Mo’s attack and not lose, just based on this one point, Su Mo was stronger than millions of other Martial Emperors in the Ancientspirit Galaxy.
The group of Giant Beings was even more shocked and confused. They understood Ju Mo’s strength the most. Although they couldn’t see that Ju Mo was unrivaled throughout the entire Ancientspirit Galaxy, he was definitely the best based purely on strength.
Yet, a current Rank 6 Martial Emperor who was a regular human had actually managed to withstand Ju Mo’s attack and not loose. That fighting strength was terrifying.
However, the one who was most surprised was Ju Mo. As he lifted his beaten fist and looked at it, he saw a deep red gash and almost all the skin on his fist was torn apart.
“How could this be?”
Looking at this, Ju Mo couldn’t help furrowing his brows. He had specially trained both his fists such that they were comparable to godly weapons. Yet, they were almost torn apart. What did this mean?
Furthermore, Su Mo’s strength in his attack just now was so strong that he almost hadn’t managed to block it. This stunned him.
Ever since he had cultivated the martial arts way, he had encountered a ton of geniuses. However, none were able to withstand his strength.
Instead, just now, he had almost failed to block a Rank 6 Martial Emperor’s sword. He couldn’t believe what had happened.
“Ju Mo, your strength is just that!” Su Mo’s voice rang out over the entire area.
At that moment, Su Mo’s eyes were shining brilliantly as he stared directly at Ju Mo from afar.
However, although Su Mo had said those words, he couldn’t help admiring Ju Mo. From the blow just now, Su Mo’s lower half of his body had become numb. He had lost all feeling in his lower half from the blow they had just exchanged.
The previous blow that he had given out was almost the maximum that he could give. Yet, he still hadn’t managed to beat Ju Mo.
In actual fact, Su Mo knew that he would lose if they were compared based on their strength. This was because Ju Mo had not used his Fighting Soul.
In this world, almost everyone else, except for the Demon Clan and a few other special clans, had Martial Souls or Fighting Souls. Ju Mo also definitely had one.
Hence, strictly speaking, Su Mo had not tasted the best of Ju Mo’s abilities. Su Mo had used 15 Sword Fighting Souls and 4 special body constitutions to go up against with Ju Mo’s strength, even though he wasn’t using his Fighting Soul.
“Humph! How arrogant! Do you think you can win against me?” Ju Mo coldly scoffed as a dark look crossed his face.
With such a strong fist, Ju Mo had thought that he could easily shove Su Mo off the platform. Hence, he had not imagined that Su Mo would be evenly matched with him.
Ju Mo’s body twitched and he flew a few hundred meters forward, landing on the green platform with a thunderous boom.
“Cower before me!”
Ju Mo roared out again as an invisible mirage rose behind him. Two large Fighting Souls materialized.
They were two Beast Fighting Souls. One was a large, fierce back bear that rose up to the height of a hundred feet. The other was similar to a rhinoceros and was equally fierce.
The moment the two Fighting Souls appeared, they roared out fiercely, shaking the True Sage Territory along with it. Then, the strength and aura around Ju Mo followed suit by increasing exponentially to make him seem like a real giant.
Dong! Dong! Dong!
Ju Mo attacked again. Punching his two fists forward, he continuously lashed out at the air.
In an instant, enormous palm prints that were the size of small hills appeared in the air. Extending out to cover a vast area, they rushed towards Su Mo.
Large, broad forces covered the heavens and the grounds as the terrifying fist force shook the nine heavens.
Ju Mo had no more intention to battle against Su Mo as he used all his strength to defeat him with this attack.
“You think too much!” Su Mo coldly laughed before drawing his sword. With a few slashes, Sword radiance spread through the long skies as streaks of Sword Qi flew forward.
This time, Su Mo had activated the Devouring Fighting Soul and strong devouring power followed while his mediocre devouring ultimacy surrounded an area over a kilometer from him.
The devouring power wasn’t enough to defeat Ju Mo, but it still served as a huge deterrence that decreased the force of Ju Mo’s attack.
Dong! Dong! Dong dong!!
Sword Qi and fist forces continued to collide against each other as deafening explosions rose above one another. Terrifying explosions caused the fighting platform to become a place of chaos.
“What kind of power is this?”
Ju Mo frowned as he felt the suppressive forces of the devouring power that covered him.
Although he could block the pulling forces of this mysterious power, the Dark Force in his body was experiencing a lot of disturbance and it couldn’t circulate as well as it should have been, hence the reduced the speed of its movement.
Su Mo’s body flew upwards, leaving a trail of dense aura as he instantly flew you a few hundred thousand feet into the high sky.
“Ju Mo, I will let you have a taste of the power of my sword formation!”
Su Mo yelled out and with thought, numerous Sword Radiance appeared around him before transforming into a hundred Spiritual Swords.
These 100 Spiritual Swords appeared around him, covering the vast skies. The Sword Force of this formation was incomprehensible.
“What? Natal Spiritual Sword Array?” Upon seeing the scene in front of him, Ju Mo’s face changed slightly. He had not thought that Su Mo would actually have so many Natal Spiritual Swords.
The Natal Spiritual Sword Array was a very terrifying attack formation. Especially for the special sword formations, it was an attack that served very well as a killing weapon.
Of course, controlling the Natal Spiritual Sword Array took a huge toll on a martial artist’s willpower. There were very few strong Natal Spiritual Sword Users.
Ordinary Natal Spiritual Sword Users could only control those small Natal Spiritual Sword Arrays and the threat of that wasn’t very high.
Ju Mo had previously defeated a Natal Spiritual Sword User. However, his opponent had only managed to use an array of thirty Natal Spiritual Swords and hence, the Natal Spiritual Swrod Array of Su Mo that used one hundred Natal Spiritual Swords caused Ju Mo to turn serious.
“Su Mo was actually a Natal Spiritual Sword User?”
“My goodness! 100 Natal Spiritual Swords.. can he control them?”
“This formation is really unexpected!”
“However, even with this, it will still be difficult to defeat Ju Mo!”
Outside the True Sage Territory, the onlookers were engaged in a very lively discussion. Previously, when Su Mo had battled with Wu Shang, he had used a mere 3 Natal Spiritual Swords and hence not many thought much of it.
However, right now, Su Mo had actually used a 100 Natal Spiritual Swords at once. It was simply amazing!
A mysterious smile appeared on the Sage of Swords Xiao Yao’s face upon seeing that. He was also a Natal Spiritual Sword User and had always been practicing the sword formation.
Hence, he couldn’t help feeling surprised when he saw Su Mo use the sword formation.
In the entire Ancientspirit Galaxy, there were few who displayed talents to use the Natal Spiritual Sword Array. Ordinary Natal Spiritual Sword users were not outstanding and controlling 50 or 60 Natal Spiritual Swords while they were Martial Emperors was already very hard.
Now that Su Mo showed that he could control a hundred Natal Spiritual Swords, Sage of Swords Xiao Yao was very interested. He wanted to see how much talent Su Mo could display!
