Chapter 814: Seven-Star Swordsman
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian wanted to challenge a sixth-level ascendant, jumping two cultivation levels.
After Gu Zhantian and him exchanged mutual glances. Gu Zhantian who aspired to become the number one had also started his 'journey,' challenging eighth-level ascendants with a cultivation base at the seventh-level, jumping levels to do battle and wishing to turn his battle halo into violet-gold. But at this exact moment, Qin Wentian actually wanted to jump two levels? This made everyone feel that Qin Wentian was proclaiming a war against Gu Zhantian.
You jump one level to do battle? I'm more tyrannical than you, I will jump two.
Such courage made the hearts of the crowd tremble. He jumped two levels to fight against opponents who were extraordinary individuals like him, with a 10,000 meter battle halo at the very least. Right now, those remaining on the Cloudheaven Arena were all powerful characters, the weaker ones no longer dared to stand on any of the platforms because their battle qi would only end up being plundered by others.
Li Yu had a sword in his hands as the sword qi radiating from him towered into the skies. His eyes were as sharp as the edges of swords, able to penetrate through everything. Although Qin Wentian currently was 1,500 meters in size, he could still feel how terrifyingly sharp Li Yu's aura was. It was something that could threaten even him.
Li Yu, was precisely the sixth-level ascendant Qin Wentian chose to battle. He was an extremely powerful sword cultivator and his sword techniques were simply mystical, enabling him to defeat countless experts, accumulating their battle qi causing his halo to be over 10,000 meters. In addition, he was a participant that appeared in the latter batches and it hasn't been too long since he started to accumulate battle qi.
"This fellow, Qin Wentian, actually challenged Li Yu of the Starasura Sword Sect. He's simply too audacious to the point of madness." The spectators below all recognized Li Yu. Li Yu was also extremely famous and was a heaven chosen of a major power named the Starasura Sword Sect.
"Haha, Li Yu, a Seven-Star Swordsman of the Starasura Sword Sect. His swordplay is truly astounding. I'm afraid this time, Qin Wentian's 170,000 meter battle halo would all be plundered away despite his combat prowess. After all, the disparity in cultivation levels wouldn't be so easily breach and Li Yu isn't someone good to bully." Those spectators who are familiar with Li Yu's strength silently stated.
Experts from the Starasura Sword Sect also arrived. When they saw this scene, terrifying sword light flickered in their eyes and an old man among them stated, "This is a rare opportunity to Li Yu. Once he defeats Qin Wentian, he would instantly possess a 180,000 meter battle halo and other than Gu Zhantian, no one else would be able to match him. If he wins this battle there's no need for him to continue combat, he can merely rest below and be a spectator for the duration of the selection test."
180,000 meters was an extremely terrifying number. Even when this selection test ended, almost none would be able to accumulate so much battle qi. The number certainly wouldn't exceed 10.
"Your courage to battle truly makes one impressed." Li Yu's eyes were akin to sharp swords, as he stared at the towering figure. This Qin Wentian actually held no fear in his heart towards him and his heart was only filled with an incomparably blazing intent to do battle. He was Li Yu, a heaven chosen of the Starasura Sword Sect, how can he not be confident when fighting against an opponent two levels below him? No matter how powerful Qin Wentian is, his confidence in himself was unshaken. Because if a swordsman lacked confidence in himself, how could his sword display its brilliance?
"Sadly, you will lose your 170,000 meter battle halo in this battle." Li Yu's voice was incomparably calm. Abruptly, a terrifying sword qi tempest manifested on the battle platform they were on.
From the air, an exceedingly resplendent diagram that enveloped this entire space appeared. It was the diagram of a gigantic sword, but it somehow resembled a sword formation. The diagram hung suspended in the air, exuding a boundless sword might as streams of sword light cascaded out from it, shrouding Li Yu within. At this instant, Li Yu seemed like an absolute supreme sword saint. His entire person was akin to a sharp sword.
"I'm proficient in the way of the sword too." Qin Wentian's 1,500 meter figure was so immense that it seemed as though he needed only a single slap to turn Li Yu into meat paste. However, he wouldn't underestimate his opponent. The Driftsnow Master's body refinement art was able to strengthen his physique but if his opponent possesses sufficient strength, they could still destroy him.
His Sword Slaughter Constellation appeared in the air, Qin Wentian's entire body was also shrouded in a boundless sword might. At this moment, the two of them seemed incomparably similar, both were akin to real swords.
Qin Wentian's demeanor resembled the king of swords, controlling everything while Li Yu's demeanor was like a sword filled with vitality and destruction, containing apocalyptic might within.
Li Yu stepped out, his entire person transformed into a streak of sword light instantly arriving before Qin Wentian as he slashed out with his sword. The sword diagram constellation of his flashed as a 100 meter sword beam tore apart the void, arcing through the skies. If this sword beam landed on Qin Wentian, there was no doubt it would possess enough power to cleave his body into two.
Qin Wentian waved his hands, the Sword Slaughter Constellation glowed with a dazzling light as terrifyingly sharp swords rained down from it, transforming into a screen of swords. The attack by Li Yu sliced through, splitting the sword screen in twain from the middle. Evidently, just purely using the power from his constellation alone wasn't able to obstruct Li Yu's sword.
The attack from a sixth-level ascendant, how could it be so simple?
However at this moment, a terrifying black-colored gigantic sword directly stabbed out. With an intense rumbling noise the entire space trembled before its might. This black sword was akin to the king of swords, capable of slaughtering anything. When Li Yu's sword slashed down, smashing against the black sword, a ring-shape shockwave of sword light blasted out from the impact forcing Qin Wentian to stomp forcefully downwards on the platform to stabilize himself. His body shimmered with resplendent runic light and despite the power of the aftershock, the shockwaves had no way to break through his defense.
However as Li Yu's sword light dissipated, Qin Wentian abruptly felt chills in his heart. A terrifying sense of crisis descended on him and an instant later, he saw Li Yu appearing right before him. The sword diagram in the air enveloped his entire body as he slashed out with a second strike, from the bottom to the top. The instant this strike was unleashed, a thin line opened up in the sky. If this attack hit his opponent, that person would undoubtedly be split into two.
"BANG!" Qin Wentian soared into the air. Although he was 1,500 meters in size, his speed was as quick as lightning. The black gigantic sword smashed downwards, manifesting a terrifying sword qi vortex at its tip, lacerating apart everything.
Qin Wentian glanced at Li Yu, he noticed that his opponent was just like a beam of sword light, instantly disappearing from his sight. The next instant, Li Yu appeared near his waist and slashed out horizontally with his sword. That terrifying sword strike contained a terrifying might. Li Yu took advantage of his smaller size to fully exhibit his fearsome sword techniques.
Qin Wentian's palm circulated with fearsome runic inscriptions and directly grabbed towards the terrifying sword. His palms contained the ability to annihilate and suppress everything and was even more fearsome compared to divine weapons.
"Bang, the sword slashed against the gigantic palm imprint as bright astral sparks manifested. Qin Wentian only felt a painful burning sensation on his palm. That sword light felt as though it had enough power to destroy his indestructible palm but at the same time, Li Yu also felt a terrifying impact rebounding back at him. When that fearsome palm imprint which had the power to seize moons and pluck stars blasted towards him earlier, he felt as though even the entire heavens were trembling.
Li Yu's body was like a bolt of electricity, shooting into the air. He stood in the sky, as the light radiating from the sword diagram cascaded down on him, making his entire person glow with resplendent light as he was cloaked within boundless sword might.
Li Yu understood that even if he used swift-attacking techniques, although he might be able to damage Qin Wentian, he wasn't able to heavily injured him. If he wanted to defeat his opponent, he must do so with overwhelming strength, using attacks that focused on pure power.
"Although you are proficient in the sword as well, how can you compare to a pure sword cultivator like myself?" With a wave of his hands, an incomparably gigantic sword diagram appeared beneath his feet, matching and reflecting the brilliance of his sword diagram constellation in the air. Countless swords emerged from the diagrams, followed by several incarnations of Li Yu.
"RUMBLE~" Streams of destructive sword might powerful enough to ravage the world abruptly erupted forth. The two sword diagrams of Li Yu exploded with boundless destructive sword qi, causing the entire space to turn blurry as the incarnations of Li Yu began their sword dance.
"DIE!" A cold shout broke through the air. Seven incarnations of Li Yu resembled seven stars, striking simultaneously from seven directions. Each sword radiated a 1,000 meter dazzling sword light, all piercing towards Qin Wentian with volcanic might.
Qin Wentian stabbed out with his sword fingers as the King Sword broke through the void. Momentarily, the sword might radiating from it shot forwards, colliding against the seven star swords of Li Yu.
However, the light from the seven star swords grew even brighter and they actually penetrated past the field of sword might radiated by the King Sword and continued unimpeded towards Qin Wentian.
With a wave of his hands, a gigantic ancient shield manifested before him. Qin Wentian blasted forth with his palms causing a shimmering glow to circulate frenziedly around the ancient shield. However a moment later, the sounds of shattering rang out, the seven star swords broke through the shield with indomitable force.
"ERADICATE!" Astral light flashed as palm shadows covered the skies, Qin Wentian finally managed to block the might of the seven star swords. But at this moment, Li Yu's second strike already arrived, it was the second stance of his Seven Star Sword Art. This time, the seven swords that blasted outwards contained the power of calamitous lightning within.
"As expected of a Seven-Star Swordsman, he's fully deserving of his reputation." The spectators sighed in admiration silently as they saw this scene. The boundless sword might circulating around the battle platform was fully controlled by Li Yu's sword influence.
"Bzz!" A dazzling golden light burst forth from Qin Wentian, as a violet-gold astral soul in the form of a towering giant shimmering with resplendent light with the height of 3,333 meters appeared behind him.
"Violet-gold astral soul! He actually has a violet-gold astral soul!" The crowd before this already guessed that Qin Wentian might have a violet-gold astral soul. His Suppressive Annihilation Constellation contained traces of a violet-golden hue but when he actually released his astral soul, the verification of this fact caused the hearts of many to shiver.
With a single punch, numerous gigantic figures of suppression blasted outwards. That devastating sword might of Li Yu was suppressed completely and even the sword qi had dulled.
"KILL!" Qin Wentian roared in rage, stamping in the air. After which, an intense light gushed forth from him, radiating with suppressive annihilation might as more gigantic figures of suppression were manifested, rushing out with crushing might.
"If Li Yu was an ordinary sixth-level ascendant, he would probably find it hard to stand up to the might from this suppression-type constellation. As a constellation condensed from a violet-gold astral soul, the overwhelming pressure from it was sufficient to slaughter anything without Qin Wentian even needing to move." The hearts of the spectators trembled as they saw how powerful Qin Wentian was!
