Chapter 280: Soaring Dragon Halberd Skill
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
High above the sky, Duan Jingtian stared at Su Mu and frowned.
The extent of demon power in Su Mo surprised him. He had only been in one seclusion and Su Mo actually stepped into the Lv 2 True Spirit Realm.
“How could this be?”
Even Duan Jingtian, who was always known as a genius was, dumbstruck in amazement.
“How did he cultivate?”
Duan Jingtian couldn’t help but be curious.
“Duan Jingtian, do you still have the confidence to kill me in three moves?” Su Mo smirked.
When Duan Jingtian heard this, his eyebrows no longer frowned and he said plainly, “Even if you’re in the peak Lv 2 True Spirit Realm, you’ll still need to die. It’s just a matter of a few more strokes!”
He then flashed toward Su Mo with his body turning into thunder and waved his halberd while giving an earth-shaking roar like a dragon.
“Soaring Dragon Halberd Skill—Dragon Soaring in the World!”
The golden halberd let out a shining light, and the shadow of a dragon soared up and threw itself toward Su Mo.
In the meantime, a magnificent dragon power spilled out of its body.
All the sudden, Su Mo was dumbstruck. This move was even more powerful than Feng Xiu’s blow while they were in the channel of Ethereal Territory.
Although Feng Xiu did not strike with his full strength, that blow was far more potent than other martial artists’.
Duan Jingtian was so powerful that he was able to catch up to a genius on the List of Top 100 Talents.
However, it was only a slight surprise to Su Mo, because he thought it was not enough to defeat him.
The Spiritual Spiral inside him rumbled, and golden lights burst out of his body. Next, he chopped with his long sword and eliminated the golden dragon shadow in no time.
“Soaring Dragon Halberd Skill—Dragon in the Sky!”
Duan Jingtian seemed cold, as he was not surprised that Su Mo could take the move. He skyrocketed into the sky and waved his halberd fiercely.
A giant golden dragon shadow, with a length of one thousand meters, roared with vast and mighty dragon power, shattering both earth and sky. In a flash, it had swiftly flown over Su Mo, and dived on him, trying to clutch his head with its shiny golden claws.
“You do have some skill!”
This move astounded Su Mo. It was incredibly strong and was enough to instantly kill an ordinary martial artist at the Peak Lv 4 True Spirit Realm. Even a martial artist at the Lv 5 wouldn’t dare take this move.
“Break!” Su Mo shouted and did not back down.
“Separating Remnant Clouds!”
Su Mo unleashed his full strength, forming sword-like energy above his head, and its sword will sprung up into the clouds, while the unstoppable sword radiance shone like a divine spell creating heaven, and instantly smashed upon the dragon.
The dragon exploded and the devastating explosion created a massive impact wave that swept over the buildings on Gale Island, destroying everything it touched.
Some nearby lower cultivated disciples were hit by the impact, and they were dodging non-stop.
“The third move, Capricious Dragon!”
Duan Jingtian let out a battle cry and made another move. After seeing Su Mo safe and sound after two moves, he had become impatient.
He brandished his golden halberd into a phantom that sent out rows of dragon shadows heading toward Su Mo.
The endless dragon shadows were constantly changing, some shifted into fierce tigers and some Demonic Wolves or eagles. The scene turned into a grand Beasts Homage.
Su Mo clenched his sword and stayed put. A second later, the sword radiance burst out into innumerable stripes of sword Qi, swinging in the air.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The shadow beasts blew up one after another as stripes of sword Qi also detonated and let off terrifying explosions. The sky was filled with disturbed airstreams and collapsed Qi, enveloping Su Mo and Duan Jingtian both and nobody was able to spot them.
The people on the ground were stunned. The two were too powerful and this made their combat insanely frantic.
In the square, the First Elder glanced at the Second Elder, chuckled, and said, “Second Elder, do you think that Su Mo stands a chance?”
The Second Elder looked dignified while staring at the combat above, shook his head, and said, “Let’s find out!”
The First Elder sneered, and confidently said, “Su Mo shall lose!”
“Why is that?”
The Second Elder raised his eyebrows, wondering why the First Elder was so confident in Duan Jingtian.
“This ‘Soaring Dragon Halberd Skill’ of Duan Jingtian is a Lower Lv 4 Martial Skill with infinite power. Plus, its strength grows!”
“And keep in mind that he has only cultivated to the realm of the Minor Completion, otherwise, one move is enough to kill Su Mo!”
The First Elder said, “Even so, he already has the strength to be put on the List of Top 100 Talents.”
“Is it?” the Second Elder sneered and said. “It’s too soon to reach a conclusion. Let’s just watch!”
They stopped talking and kept their gazes on the battle.
The booming sounds in the sky were continuous, and they could only see two silhouettes crossing over and over again. The soaring dragon shadows had their mighty strength, while the sharp sword Qi had its incredible agility.
Boom, boom, boom…
Numerous confrontations blasted out great forces that spread around in the form of boundless wild winds. The two rose higher and higher during their battle, reaching seven to eight thousand meters in height.
Some outer disciples under the Lv 7 Spiritual Martial Realm could not see the battle anymore.
Su Mo felt enormous pressure at this moment.
The power of Duan Jingtian was beyond his expectations. He also knew that the martial arts techniques Duan Jingtian had cultivated were extremely mighty as it was far more forceful than his own Divine Wind Swordplay.
Divine Wind Swordplay used to be Su Mo’s hidden trump card; however, with the improvement of his strength, Divine Wind Swordplay was not able to play a more significant part.
The reason why Su Mo could match Duan Jingtian in strength was the support of his nine Spiritual Spirals, strong human body, and the strength of his sword will.
These three factors were indispensable as Su Mo would die in an instant if he didn’t possess all three.
Duan Jingtian appeared in front of Su Mo. His golden halberd was like a dragon out of the sea, thrusting at Su Mo’s head.
Genuine Vitality gathered on the tip of his halberd that instantly turned into a giant dragon which gave a thunderous roar at Su Mo.
Su Mo motivated his Devouring Martial Spirit, and then a devouring power burst out.
He could not defeat Duan Jingtian without using his Martial Soul.
The devouring power shrouded Duan Jingtian, causing his movement to stop for a moment. Su Mo took this chance and bounced off the enemy’s halberd, chopping toward Duan Jingtian’s neck with his sword radiance.
Duan Jingtian was shocked and blocked with his halberd before he could stabilize his Genuine Vitality.
With a blast, Spirit-slayer Sword cut upon the golden halberd, while the resulting force pushed him backward.
Su Mo continued his attack again. He flashed forth and struck 33 rows of sword Qi in an instant.
Like a massive net of swords, they thrust toward Duan Jingtian.
While Duan Jingtian was flying backward, he calmed himself and pressed some of the disordered Genuine Vitality and Qi blood down. However, he found out an invisible force was influencing both his Genuine Vitality and Qi blood. The Genuine Vitality would become unstable again if he relaxed even a little bit.
“What’s happening?” Duan Jingtian turned pale with fright.
