Chapter 660: The Pressure
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
The massive sword shadow moved at such incredible speed that it left no time for Su Mo and Yin Tianchou to dodge it.
Both braced themselves to block the stroke by maximizing their strength.
Su Mo gave a battle cry as both his body and sword burst with brilliant light, as he heavily struck at the sword shadow.
“Dark Snake Swallowing Sky!”
Yin Tianchou barked and thrust his spear dozens of times within a split second, creating a giant dark snake that dashed toward the sword shadow.
“Boom! Boom! Boom!”
The three moves met their mark and produced a series of violent explosions that sent out a destructive fan-shaped airwave.
They both withdrew hundreds of meters to parry the oncoming airwave.
Before Su Mo could hold steady, a row of axe ray dashed toward his back.
A middle-aged man nearby with a battlaxe had launched the attack.
Su Mo’s eyes glittered with the same familiar killing desire. How dare a Lv 1 True Spirit Realm creep attack him!
He easily parried the attack and unleashed the Spiritual Sword, instantly killing the offender.
He then looked at Xing Feng with a solemn face and said to Yin Tianchou, “Brother, this guy is too powerful. It’s not a good time to fight him. We should recover the cultivation first!”
Yin Tianchou nodded in agreement.
Even if they could kill him, it would be time-consuming, which meant that more people would have higher cultivation levels by then.
They needed to save their strength to compete for the Demonic Sword!
Su Mo also thought that his devouring power could not affect Xing Feng since his level was lower.
The priority was to improve cultivation while keeping the pace of the group.
They both flew away from Xing Feng and began looking for prey.
Upon seeing this, Xing Feng sneered. He chose not to follow knowing he could not kill them quickly while they had joined forces.
He then began his own search for prey.
Yin Tianchou and Su Mo decided to go their separate ways.
Both men were peerless talents. The average martial artist who was a level higher was still no match for either of them.
Su Mo had killed several more people, but his cultivation would not upgrade.
It was increasingly more difficult to upgrade when moving to higher levels.
Su Mo guessed that he could upgrade to Lv 3 True Spirit Realm after killing two or three more people.
“Go to hell, kid!”
A gaunt old man charged at him sideways and punched a huge palm print toward him.
“A Martial King Realm expert?”
The sight of the old man shocked Su Mo. Although both men were at Lv 2 True Spirit Realm, the old man had a profound aura that differed from a normal True Darkness Realm martial artist.
He assumed that the old man must have been at Martial King Realm before he came to this place.
He dared not underestimate the attacker. His nine Spiritual Spirals started to run madly, while his body was covered with shiny scale armor.
He struck heavily at the incoming palm print.
The massive palm print shattered and the impact sent him backward 100 meters.
Su Mo was surprised that he got one-move knocked back by a same-leveled martial artist. This guy’s combat strength was even stronger than that of Xing Feng, who was a level above him.
“Su Mo, run! He’s the Iron-palm King, a Medium Martial King. He’s not for you to fu*k with!”
Yin Tianchou’s voice came from afar.
Su Mo was shocked again. A Medium Martial King meant that his normal cultivation level was between Lv 4 and Lv 6 Martial King Realm.
However, it was his fighting desire that rose instead of fear.
“A Medium Martial King?”
“Sorry, we are at the same level now.”
“Devouring Martial Soul!”
The devouring power shrouded the Iron-palm King instantly.
The Iron-palm King felt his Genuine Vitality and blood become turbulent, as if rushing from of his body.
Su Mo struck out a massive sword Qi toward the Iron-palm King.
The old man barked in outrage. He rapidly withdrew and tried to ease his Genuine Vitality and blood.
He punched toward the sword Qi.
The two moves crushed each other.
In the explosion, a tiny flash of lightning traveled sideways to the Iron-palm King.
The old man had noticed the lightning that made his flesh creep. However, as a Martial King Realm expert, his cultivation was limited and his reaction speed was far faster than that of an average True Darkness Realm martial artist.
He twisted his body in a split second.
The lightning bounced off his shoulder.
“It’s a Spiritual Sword!”
The Iron-palm King had immediately recognized the lightning.
Su Mo sighed. He was impressed that the old man had survived his attacks.
“I have to reach Lv 7 True Spirit Realm asap!”
Su Mo gnashed his teeth. He felt a great amount of pressure. There were too many powerful martial artists present, although he had nine Spiritual Spirals, they were not enough.
There were more than 2,000 people that had recovered to the True Spirit Realm.
Many of them were unmatched, such as two youths shining with lightening. The black-robed youth shone sanguine light and instantly killed all the martial artist at his level.
Su Mo took a deep breath. He had to reach Lv 7 True Spirit Realm to use the Five Elements Force.
He could then easily kill experts like the old man.
Su Mo retreated from the Iron-palm King and quickly flew in another direction.
