Worlds’ Apocalypse Online Chapter 1144
Gu Qing Shan moved away, revealing Xie Dao Ling who had just finished casting her Divine Skill.
The entire world was engulfed in a gloomy color.
The boundlessly vast river, a lonely dingy, and a feminine figure slowly appeared.
As the leader of the wraiths glanced over, he immediately exclaimed:
“NO! This is a Huang Quan great realm Divine Skill! Everyone—— use that technique!”
He quickly tossed out a round ice-colored glazed mirror.
Over a dozen wraiths chanted the same incantation and formed the same hand seals.
A lanky figure appeared from their bodies to hold the mirror up.
The wraiths all shouted together:
“With my vitality, Samsara Resistance Technique, stop!”
Their vitality was siphoned from the top of their heads, infusing into that figure.
With so much overflowing vitality, that figure slowly solidified and displayed its real form.
It was a woman dressed in a colorful silk dress.
The woman was expressionless, simply holding the mirror towards the Forgetting River in the sky.
A divine lazuli light shined from the mirror towards the Forgetting River.
The entire Forgetting River, the unstable dingy, the feminine figure, all of them were frozen in the sky, unable to fully manifest.
——–the Samsara Divine Skill, [Forgetting River] was suspended by the wraiths’ joint technique!
Gu Qing Shan and Xie Dao Ling were both stunned.
Xie Dao Ling turned to him and asked: “Qing Shan, you’ve traveled through the infinite worlds, have you ever seen a technique being frozen by another technique?”
Gu Qing Shan shook his head: “I’ve never seen or heard of such a thing before, what about Shifu?”
Xie Dao Ling replied: “I also haven’t—–”
She trembled for a short moment.
“I remember now, this seems to be an Immortal Craft, [Thousand Ruler Mirror]”
“Immortal Craft?” Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but ask.
“That’s right, within the Samsara, the Heaven realm is the highest, and the Heaven realm’s Divine Skills are called Immortal Crafts”
Xie Dao Ling whispered as she fell into thought.
Gu Qing Shan also couldn’t help but recall the past.
After the battle of Huang Quan, I’ve met the Heavenly God of the Heaven realm.
It was the first time I’ve ever seen a technique like [Time Stanch].
However, the Heavenly God at the time didn’t seem to be a native living being of the Samsara, but rather descendants of the Deities from the Inner Plane
In other words, my homeworld was a Samsara created from a fragment of the Huang Quan realm. Among them, only the Huang Quan realm contained actual beings from the Samsara, while the other realms, like the human realm, were comprised of living beings who reincarnated from Huang Quan, and the 9 Lords who came to seek refuge from the Starlight Empire of the Inner Plane.
The wraiths all focused themselves to maintain the Immortal Craft and suspend the Forgetting River in the sky, not allowing it to descend.
The only one who could move was their master.
—-the wraith leader.
He took out a pair of metal gauntlets, slowly walked towards Gu Qing Shan and Xie Dao Ling step by step.
“A Huang Quan great realm Divine Skill”
“Although I have set up a trap and successfully restricted the duo dragon power, I seemed to still have underestimated you”
He started to radiate overwhelming killing intent.
Gu Qing Shan put the now-asleep Heaven sword into his Thought Sea, wielded the Earth sword in one hand and the Chao Yin sword in the other.
Without saying a single word, his figure disappeared in a flash——
Countless black sword images appeared around the wraith’s body, giving off the sound of numerous clashing weapons.
Secret Art, [Drawn Shadow]!
Gu Qing Shan only performed one attack before retreating.
The wraith simply stood still, parrying Gu Qing Shan’s sword shadows while seven shadows appeared from his body, chasing after Gu Qing Shan.
The seven shadows quickly surrounded Gu Qing Shan without leaving a single gap and attacked him at once!
Gu Qing Shan crossed his swords and instantly produced a gigantic sword phantom.
Secret Art, [River Traversing Iron Sword]!
The sword phantom clashed against the numerous metal fists and exploded.
Gu Qing Shan retreated, wielding his sword to face the wraith.
Only to see the wraith standing still without moving.
He said: “This is your swordsmanship? How laughable, you can’t even stop my shadows, let alone fight me”
Gu Qing Shan observed his injuries.
There were sword marks all over his body, still bleeding.
These are from my sword phantoms.
Gu Qing Shan narrowed his eyes and turned to the wraith.
“Shifu, each of their yaksha masks has its own unique ability, called a Guise Hex. I assume that it was the power of Guise Hex at work just now, the shadows were triggered by my sword phantoms, while he used those shadows to attack and return my sword phantoms to me” Gu Qing Shan told her.
Xie Dao Ling pondered and spoke: “It seems his Guise Hex was made specifically to counter cultivators who use cold weapons”
The wraith laughed and praised: “Very good vision, I heard that the Huang Quan Devil King is a sword-using expert, so I specifically chose this mask for the sake of killing him”
The wraith then formed a martial arts stance and slowly said: “Devil King, that was you fighting against yourself just now, I actually still haven’t acted yet”
A plain-white light exuded from his body, focusing on the pair of gauntlets in his hands.
The world began to tremble.
The wraith spoke: “Before you die, you’ve qualified to hear my name. Remember well, the one who killed you was Cang Wu Zhang of the Wraith realm”
Xie Dao Ling patted Gu Qing Shan’s shoulder and said: “Swordsmanship is useless against him, I’ll deal with him, you think of a way to dispel that Immortal Craft”
Gu Qing Shan turned to the female figure holding the mirror.
He replied and vanished in a flash.
Cang Wu Zhang smirked: “Dream on!”
His body shifted slightly and returned to the other wraiths to stop Gu Qing Shan.
Gu Qing Shan suddenly turned into Xie Dao Ling.
Xie Dao Ling threw a punch without any hesitation.
Divine Skill, [Skyfall]!
With a loud sound of impact, the two figures took distance, flying in opposite directions.
However, seven shadows appeared out of nowhere, quickly chasing after Xie Dao Ling while throwing numerous punches against her.
——-so it wasn’t just cold weapons, but even martial arts were countered by this Guise Hex!
A simple yaksha mask had such a level of power.
The extent of the Wraith realm’s power was quite unimaginable!
Cang Wu Zhang only paused slightly before giving chase right away.
Gu Qing Shan was now standing where Xie Dao Ling originally was. Witnessing this, he immediately changed his selection on [War God Titles]
[Starflame War God]
Title Skill [Conquer]!
Cang Wu Zhang immediately turned his head and charged towards Gu Qing Shan.
He laughed maniacally: “Devil King, I’ve decided to kill you right in front of your master, this would surely cause her immense suffering, bahahaha!”
A lightning whip abruptly swung at him from above, causing Cang Wu Zhang to retreat.
Xie Dao Ling stood in front of Gu Qing Shan and whispered: “Careful, besides those seven shadows, he still has another technique affecting him, most likely able to return the same damage to any attackers”
Gu Qing Shan’s heart became heavy.
This Cang Wu Zhang is truly sly, knowing not to use this defensive technique during the first time I probed him.
—-the Guise Hex can reflect incoming damage to the attacker.
—-and there was another technique that could make the enemy suffer the same damage he does.
“He’s only trying to stop [Forgetting River]” Gu Qing Shan commented.
“Hm, because any other means of attack won’t be useful against him” Xie Dao Ling continued.
Even if Cang Wu Zhang got hit, his enemy would suffer from the same damage, while most attacks could be converted into seven shadows which would pursue the attacker.
Wasn’t this basically fighting a porcupine with bare hands?
Gu Qing Shan exchanged glances with Xie Dao Ling.
Gu Qing Shan retreated.
Xie Dao Ling stepped forward.
But numerous other incarnations of herself appeared in the sky.
Numerous Xie Dao Ling filled the sky, all forming hand seals to unleash various Elemental techniques.
Elemental Metal, [Great Dragon]!
Numerous dragons manifested from Elemental Metal charged towards Cang Wu Zhang.
Cang Wu Zhang retreated in front of the other wraiths as his pair of gauntlets gave off spikey rays of light.
“You dare try to test my mettle with such a weak cloning technique?”
He threw a single punch from afar.
The entire void of space was broken through, revealing the dark emptiness.
That emptiness quickly spread like wildfire, swallowing up all the [Great Dragons].
Taking this chance, the numerous Xie Dao Lings drew their whips and swung at once.
The numerous bolts of lightning descended from the sky, striking at Cang Wu Zhang’s body.
Cang Wu Zhang was immediately restrained.
But similarly, all Xie Dao Ling’s incarnations were stunned by [Dreamjolt]!
Even a Thaumaturgy could be reflected!
Xie Dao Ling suddenly appeared in front of Cang Wu Zhang.
Putting her whip away, she exchanged hundreds of blows with Cang Wu Zhang in the blink of an eye.
Cang Wu Zhang’s blows were violent, Xie Dao Ling’s fist techniques were light, putting their exchange into a stalemate.
However, each of Cang Wu Zhang’s attacks was followed by seven shadows that helped him attack Xie Dao Ling.
After just a few moments, hundreds of shadows appeared to attack at the same time as Cang Wu Zhang.
Xie Dao Ling finally couldn’t handle it and was sent flying backward by one of Cang Wu Zhang’s punches.
Cang Wu Zhang smirked: “Seems like I can already feel your despair”
In the sky.
Xie Dao Ling was caught by Gu Qing Shan and coughed up a bit of blood.
“There’s no telling who’s going to die in whose hand just yet”
Curtly replying so, she displayed the item in her hand.
A lazuli seal.
Cang Wu Zhang’s lazuli seal!
So the reason why Xie Dao Ling risked becoming injured just now by going into close combat was to steal this seal!
This seal was the thing suppressing Gu Qing Shan’s duo dragon power.
Cang Wu Zhang swiftly checked his body to find that the seal had indeed vanished!
He stared at Xie Dao Ling in shock, speechless.
Such a beautiful woman, a great cultivator who wields a Huang Quan Divine Skill, also has such a ridiculously high level of burglary skills, who could have actually expected this?
Xie Dao Ling tossed the lazuli seal behind her back.
A single sword slashed through it.
The seal shattered to dust.
Invisible power fluctuation radiated from Gu Qing Shan’s body.
His suppressed powers had been unleashed!
Xie Dao Ling looked at Cang Wu Zhang and curtly explained: “You’ve set up a trap here specifically to suppress Qing Shan’s duo dragon power, so we assume that it was because Qing Shan’s duo dragon power is a way to perfectly deal with you somehow”
Gu Qing Shan continued: “Otherwise, there would completely be no need to exert so much effort like you had, would there?”
An immense dark aura exuded from his body.
Slowly manifesting as the form of the black dragon.
A gigantic black dragon soared to the sky, chomping down towards the wraith Cang Wu Zhang.
