Chapter 480: Intense Battle
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Murong Wudi unveiled his true prowess, the mighty gravitational field increasing in strength yet again.
Due to the increased strength of the Gravitational Field, Su Mo, hurtling upwards, froze for a moment as his speed was greatly reduced.
Similarly, the strength of his powerful sword attack was vastly weakened, carrying only half of its original power.
Murong Wudi punched once again. His black gauntlet shone brightly when he raised his fist, and the Vital Spirit circling around him came together to form a mountain, instantly integrating itself with his fist force.
The punch was like a mountain crushing down, its fist force also carried the weight of a mountain, instantly sucking the air out of the area for miles, turning it into a vacuum zone.
Only an intense fist radiance and an incredibly sharp sword Qi remained in the void.
As the crowd watched on, the fist radiance and sword Qi collided with a loud bang. The explosion swept the surrounding area with such violent force that it felt like the apocalypse.
Both Su Mo and Murong Wudi were knocked back by the force of the explosion.
“Su Mo, there is no way you’ll be able to defeat me!” Murong Wudi proclaimed proudly, but his face turned serious as he did not expect Su Mo to display such incredible strength even in the face of his powerful Gravitational Field.
Su Mo smiled coldly, and said “There is no way you’ll be able to defeat me, either!”
He remained extremely confident, for he had an invincible defense.
His body possessed an incredible defensive strength, and combined with his protective Vital Spirit, this placed him in an unbeaten position.
As strong as his opponent’s Gravitional Field was, even if the Gravitional Field had a significant effect on his strength, his opponent would still not be able to break past his defence.
The crowd was buzzing in shock.
Many disciples continued to flock toward the Casino Valley, with almost 200,000 people gathering in the short time.
Whether he won or lost, Su Mo’s name would be known all throughout the Celestialspirit Sect after today.
“Su Mo’s strength is so amazing. He’s on par with Murong Wudi!”
“Yeah, it will be hard to determine the outcome of this match!”
“I reckon Su Mo’s attack is stronger than Murong Wudi’s by far, but under the influence of the Gravitational Field, their strength is now well-matched!”
The crowd was all stunned at Su Mo’s strength. People who were certain earlier that Su Mo would be defeated now wavered, for based on the situation right now, it would be hard to predict the winner!
“Su Mo, the arena within the Casino Valley is too narrow, let us have an aerial battle!” Murong Wudi said as he headed for the sky.
Su Mo frowned at his words. Carrying out the battle within the fighting ring put Su Mo at an advantage because of Murong Wudi’s Gravitational Field.
Within the fighting ring, Su Mo was still able to display 90% of his speed even with the gravitational pull of a million pounds since his feet were planted firmly on the ground.
His speed would be greatly restricted in the air as he would no longer be able to rely on the force at his feet.
However, Su Mo felt more relieved after some thought. Even if they did not have an aerial battle, his opponent was still in the skies above the fighting ring, so it would not be easy for him to engage in close combat. Moreover, he was not afraid even if they took the battle to the skies!
Su Mo flew upward like a sword piercing through the skies, and followed closely behind Murong Wudi, reaching the top of the clouds in a matter of seconds.
The two stood one kilometer apart, facing each other.
“Su Mo, you are a pretty good opponent. Let us do our best in today’s battle!” Murong Wudi said seriously, as his Gravitational Field covered the area again.
Su Mo’s body shook as a huge gravitational weight fell upon him, and almost caused him to fall from the skies.
“Let’s do this!” Su Mo said nothing more as a strong fighting desire appeared in his eyes.
His Vital Spirit shook suddenly, and the void rumbled as he pushed past the chains of gravity and rushed at Murong Wudi.
“Take this, Mountainous Fist!” Murong Wudi shouted.
His fist burst out, and dozens of mountains formed by his Vital Spirit integrated into his fist force, increasing its power by many times.
With one punch, the void exploded and the air shattered, instantly turning all of the clouds within a five kilometer radius into nothing.
The incredible fist force turned into a mountain hundreds of meters tall, generating huge gusts of wind that headed straight at Su Mo to flatten him.
“Haha, this is great!” Su Mo laughed.
Just as the huge mountain approached him, his sword hacked down ruthlessly.
He did not call upon any martial arts techniques, but with his body’s amazing strength coupled with the strength of his Vital Spirit, no attack would stand a chance against him.
Boom boom boom!
With a loud explosion, the huge mountain was hacked apart by that one sword, scattering into the distance.
Su Mo paused, then flew toward Murong Wudi again.
“Pretty good!” Murong Wudi shouted, then continued “Only a handful of peers within Celestial spirit Sect are able to take this punch. Su Mo, you should be proud of yourself!”
“Now take my 10 punches!” Murong Wudi moved yet again, his fist force gushing like a river, as 10 Vital Spirit mountains even larger than before joined together as one and headed for Su Mo.
Every one of those ten mountains was more than 330 meters tall, with a dense Vital Spirit rumbling within. Su Mo looked incredibly tiny in front of the ten mountains, almost non-existent.
However, small he might be, the power he could unleash was unimaginable.
Su Mo did not stop rushing forward, his Sky-crushing sword raised high, releasing a 50 meter tall sword ray into the sky before it turned into a gigantic sword imbued with sword will.
“Destroy!” Su Mo shouted. Five-colored sword rays swirled around the gigantic sword, and Su Mo violently sliced downward with both hands gripping his sword.
The void shook as heaven and earth split apart. The gigantic sword landed on the first mountain, and the mountain exploded at the contact. Then next came the second, third….and finally the tenth mountain.
All ten gigantic mountains exploded one after another, sending out violent blast waves that swept across all directions.
Su Mo’s figure was knocked back hundreds of meters by the strong blast waves.
Su Mo frowned for Murong Wudi’s attack was extremely strong. Although it was not enough to defeat him, but it restricted his movements, not allowing him to get close to his opponent at all.
If he couldn’t approach him, long-range attacks with his Vital Spirit would not be enough to defeat his opponent.
“Su Mo, I admit you’re good, but you’re still about to be defeated!” Murong Wudi stood in the skies, confidence written all over his face. “You’re worthy of facing my strongest attack!”
“Time to end this!” Murong Wudi had grasped the extent of Su Mo’s strength, and did not wish to waste any more time. He was prepared to finish the battle in one move.
Murong Wudi raised his fist, and the Gravitational Field enveloping the surroundings disappeared in an instant, shrinking into the fist.
