Chapter 2005: Driven Into a Corner
Shang Ziyan original accumulation was already very profound, and the only trigger for breakthrough was just an opportunity.
After consuming the Earthen Soul Liquid, the opportunity appeared, which made the breakthrough went ahead without the slightest difficulty, and no one could stop it.
After seeing the huge commotion caused by Shang Ziyan, all of those watching the battle were shocked, and some could not help but to shake their heads.
“Zhang Ruochen is indeed powerful, on the same realm, even Shang Ziyan is no match for him. But alas, with Shang Ziyan completing his breakthrough in an instant, and his strength doubled, no matter how strong Zhang Ruochen is, he will no longer be able to match Shang Ziyan.”
“I really did not expect Shang Ziyan to gave such a hand up his sleeve. He sure is meticulous.”
“Shang Ziyan, with his Precept Dominion is no longer someone Zhang Ruochen can fight against. This battle will end soon enough.”
Many cultivators watching the battle shook their heads and sighed for Zhang Ruochen, feeling that Zhang Ruochen had no hope of winning as it was almost impossible to bea a peerless genius like Shang Ziyan across realms.
On top of the cliff, a look of surprise flashed pass the mysterious man’s eyes as he said. “Unexpectedly, there are times where my eyes deceive me. What a Zhang Ruochen, long before he had culminated his Precept Dominion, his soul sword had already reached the level of Earth Sword Soul. What a wizard in swordsmanship.”
“Zhang Ruochen’s radiant Yang Qi is not only ferocious and majestic, but is also of extraordinary quality. If I’m not mistaken, he probably had refined a divine medicine that contained powerful Yang Qi. So that’s why his Dragon-Elephant Prajna Palm Strike is so powerful, so much so that even Shang Ziyan could not defend against it.”
The mysterious man’s eyes were extraordinary, and he quickly figured out the secrets of Zhang Ruochen instead of making a fuss like the other spectators.
Hearing the words of the mysterious man, Chi Kunlun could not get himself to be happy at all. Shang Ziyan had now broken through the realm of Precept Dominion, and was exuding an extremely terrifying aura, which posed a grave threat to Zhang Ruochen.
Before the Peacock Manor, Shang Ziyan displayed a force that could swallowing mountains and rivers as he absorbed the saint Qi of the realm with all his might, and consumed a golden saint pill at the same time.
With the aid of this pill, Shang Ziyan could quickly refill his saint Qi, and speed up their transformation as well.
Zhang Ruochen, you are indeed very strong, but everything ends now.”
Shang Zixuan said indifferently.
An extremely frigid aura burst out of Shang Ziyan’s body, forming a hideous three-headed beast.
It was the same Light of the Dark Nether, but when unleashed in the Precept Dominion-realm, its power was who knows how many times stronger now.
The ferocious beast roared as its menacing aura spread out in all directions, causing everyone to tremble, be it body or soul.
Zhang Ruochen knew that he could not dodge it, so he immediately used the twelfth palm of the Dragon-Elephant Prajna Palm Strike, and this was the strongest palm technique he had cultivated thus far.
In order to maximize the power of the Dragon-Elephant Prajna Palm Strike, Zhang Ruochen could not help but to extract a large amount of Yang Qi from the sun in the Divine Light’s Sea of Qi.
For a time, a blazing brilliance radiated from Zhang Ruochen’s body, as if his entire person had transformed into scorching sun, making it impossible for someone to look directly at him.
Although the dragon and elephant were ripped apart by the ferocious beast, they had also resisted most of the ferocious beast’s might.
By the time the weakened beast charged before Zhang Ruochen, he crossed his arm before him as all of the acupoints on his arms opened up, releasing a torrent of saint Qi as they infused the Fire God’s Armguards.
With the Fire God’s Armguards activated, a large crimson fire cloud appeared and acted like a shield.
A powerful force struck Zhang Ruochen head on, and pushing him back again and again.
The crimson colored flame clouds faded by the minute as its power was quickly consumed. In the end however, it managed to resist the ferocious beast’s attack.
Looking at the ferocious beast disappear without a trace, Zhang Ruochen felt his arms feeling slightly numb, and the saint Qi in most of the acupoints on his arms had been consumed.
Fortunately, the divine sun in the divlne light’s sea of Qi continued to revolve, releasing a swell of Qi that quickly replenished such a consumption.
“Shang Ziyan breaking into the Precept Dominion-realm, and even if he had not consolidated his cultivation base yet, his strength is still greatly improved. This is really troublesome.” Zhang Ruochen frowned slightly.
In the face of Shang Ziyan’s sudden breakthrough, it did caught him a little off guard.
Seeing Zhang Ruochen completely blocking the High-level Saint Art attack, Shang Ziyan could not help but sneer. “I want to see how many blows you can withstand. I will let you know that your struggles thus far were all for nought.”
As he said that, Shang Ziyan infused a large amunt of saint Qi into the Tower of a Thousand Temperings, causing it to unleash a terrifying supreme power that blasted at Zhang Ruochen.
With the Five-colored Merit Stele suppression both time and space, Zhang Ruochen had no way of escaping, and he could slowly play with Zhang Ruochen.
Seeing so, Zhang Ruochen immediately activated the Zangshan Demonic Mirror and met the Tower of a Thousand Temperings.
The power unleashed by the Tower of a Thousand Temperings were so devastating that it sent the Zangshan Demonic Mirror flying with Zhang Ruochen also blasted away alongside it.
Shang Ziyan did not stop, and continue to rouse the Tower of a Thousand Temperings as he unleashed volleys after volleys of supreme power.
Zhang Ruochen held the Zangshan Demonic Mirror and blocked the Tower of a Thousand Temperings’ attack. As a result, his entire person was blasted straight into the ground.
The already sunked ground instantly shattered and fragmented, as if they had been hit by a terrible earthquake.
“After breaking into the Precept Dominion-realm Shang Ziyan’s strength had increased by too much. Zhang Ruochen is no longer his match, and defeat is just a matter of time.”
“Not only Zhang Ruochen is in danger, even his companions are also in peril.
“Although there had been many unforeseen events, but the victor of this battle will still be the Heavenly Realm faction.”
“When Zhang Ruochen dies, who can check the elites of the Heavenly Realm faction? Kunlun Realm is in grave danger.”
Looking at the lop-sided situation on the battlefield, all of the spectating cultivators could almost foresee the final outcome.
“Is Zhang Ruochen really going to die this time?” The Thousand-Star Maiden frowned deeply.
On the battlefield, seeing Zhang Ruochen on the backfoot, Kong Lanyou’s expression became particularly chilly as the killing intent radiating from her body became even more pronounced.
Kong Lanyou roared as she slammed at palm strike at Di Feng.
The Heaven’s Ascension Palm blasted out with fury was extremely powerful as a massive seven-colored peacock appeared. It gently flapped its wings, unleashing a dazzling Light of Ascension.
Di Feng’s expression changed slightly, but he did not panic, quickly took out a divine prayer bead that radiated evil Qi out.
The divine bead was incredible object and was itself a powerful King’s Weapon. Even though it was damaged before and had not yet been repaired, its power was still equally powerful.
At this moment more than a hundred thousand King’s inscriptions appeared on the bead, drawing in the power of heaven and earth, as it shot out like a star.
Although the seven-colored peacock was powerful, it was still shattered upon impact by the divine bead, reduced into a seven-colored rain of light.
And the light on the divine bead also dimmed in an instant as all of the King’s inscriptions were hidden once again as it flew back to hands of Di Feng.
Di Feng smiled and blocked before Kong Lanyou, saying. “Zhang Ruochen’s death is certain, and this is something no one can change. If you submit yourself to me, you may still have a chance to live. Or else, you will end up the same as Zhang Ruochen.”
“Those who stand in my way will die.”
Kong Lanyou’s eyes seethed with murderous intent.
An incomparably terrifying aura radiated out of Kong Lanyou’s body as her long white hair fluttered, each strand radiating a bright holy light.
By the time the seven-colored holy light had reached its apex, Kong Lanyou had transformed into a seven-colored divine peacock.
Clearly, Kong Lanyou’s peacock blood in her body had been stimulated to the extreme long ago, and could now transform into a peacock.
The seven-colored divine peacock flapped its wings as countless of seven-colored feathers flew out, forming into razor sharp blades as they ripped through the air towards Di Feng.
Di Feng’s expression changed dramatically as he felt a grave threat.
In this situation, Di Feng naturally dared not to be careless as he immediately activated the divine bead once again, forming a massive shield that protected him within it.
At this moment, not only was Kong Lanyou fighting desperately, even Jin Yu, Luo Chen, Bao Lie weer all fighting in a frenzy, striking with everything they had as they tried to rid themselves of their foe to rescue Zhang Ruochen.
The broken ground suddenly exploded as Zhang Ruochen, with messy hair, rushed out from the ground.
Shang Ziyan said coldly. “Still stubborn as ever. If that’s the case, I will beat you until you can no longer stand.”
Before his words even trailed away, the Five-colored Merit Stele which was hanging in the air suddenly came crashing down.
Zhang Ruochen’s expression changed drastically, and immediately lifted both his hands.
The Five-colored Merit Stele did not hit Zhang Ruochen, but was instead held off by Zhang Ruochen with both of his hands.
However, it was so heavy, not unlike an ancient divine mountain, as it continued to press Zhang Ruochen down.
In a blink of an eye, Zhang Ruochen had landed on the ground.
The already broken ground was shattered violently once again.
An extremely cataclysmic force acted against the ground, forming a powerful shock wave that swept across all direction like a tsunami.
Wherever it passed through, everything shattered.
And it spread out far and wide, almost extending to ten thousand miles in radius.
Some of the weaker spectators were sent flying by this force, and some were badly wounded because of it.
On the other hand, as the Peacock Manor had Supreme Saint inscriptions and high-level formations array around it, it did not suffer much damage.
However, the land around the Peacock Manor were all sunken and broken, causing the Peacock Manor to look like a lone island in the sea, in an ever precarious situation as it was exposed to the waves.
Inside the Peacock Manor were many of the Peacock demi-humans, but they were sadly too weak and were unable to participate in such a battle.
AT this moment, the Peacock demi-humans were already terrified, and some were already despairing as they felt that the end was upon them.
Seeing Zhang Ruochen was being crushed by the Five-colored Merit Stele, and Bao Lie raged in fury. “Die, all of you!”
As he roared, Bao Lie desperately roused the power of the Eye of the Star Soul, releasing an incomparably bright starlight.
The Heavenly Realm elite that was fighting Bao Lie could not react in time, and his body was instantly penetrated by the starlight, and suffered a grievious injury.
And just as Bao Lie wanted to try to help Zhang Ruochen, another Heavenly Realm elite struck, and landed a palm strike on Bao Lie’s back.
Bao Lie immediately spat out a big mouthful of blood, and mixed within it were pieces of viscera.
“You can’t even protect yourself and you want to rescue Zhang Ruochen, hilarious.”
The powerhouse that wounded Bao Lie smiled coldly.
