Chapter 377 Instant Kill
Second Young Master Gao Ankang frowned and asked, "Who are you?"
Fang Xingjian shortly considered the current situation and the scene he had come across when landing, managing to shape a rough idea of what was going on.
"Great Western Region, Fang Xingjian."
He threw a glance at the Second Young Master and Mister Shen before turning toward the Eldest Young Master, Gao Anhe, and said, "You're Gao Anhe, right? How about I help you kill this old guy and you give me the azure dragon's scale?" He pointed to Mister Shen.
Hearing this, Second Young Master Gao Ankang laughed out loud, looking at Fang Xingjian as if he were staring at a fool.
With a bitter expression, Mister Shen said, "Misery, misery. Lad, you're Fang Xingjian? As expected, you're an outstanding person. But why are you defying the wills of the heavens and going up against the First Prince? Aren't you thinking too highly of yourself and of your abilities?"
"The way you talk is truly infuriating. I was already angry to begin with, considering that I've have to waste one day in order to travel here." Fang Xingjian glared at Mister Shen and said, "Forget it, I'll kill you first before discussing the azure dragon's scale."
Mister Shen showed a helpless expression. "Xingjian lad, His Highness, the First Prince, is one of great benevolence, and has said that he'll let you off for a year. However, this doesn't mean that I won't retaliate. If you were to really interfere with the matter regarding Gao Clan, then don't blame me for being vicious.
"Do you possibly think that I'll only get a beating and not retaliate?
"Sigh, the people in the world are ignorant and foolish. It's really hard on this old man."
The Eldest Young Master quickly said, "Fang Xingjian! He is a level 27 expert who is already able to refine the powers in the small world in his body. You mustn't go up against him!"
Fang Xingjian opened one of his palms and condensed water vapor into a longsword. At the same time, layers of scales appeared on the surface of his body.
At the next moment, an extremely strong surge of power burst forth from Fang Xingjian's body. Everyone within a radius of five kilometers felt that their bodies had become lighter, and it was as if heaven and earth had been flipped over and everything floated in the air.
At the same time, an extremely violent surge of information current barged into everyone's consciousness.
"Old man, you aren't weak. I'll kill you directly in a single move."
The astonishing aura from the Terra Ingurgitation burst forth from Fang Xingjian's body, as he concurrently activated the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor. Boundless energy gushed out of Fang Xingjian's body and all sorts of magnetism and light forces were incessantly being absorbed into Fang Xingjian's body.
Right now, Fang Xingjian's Waves had already reached level 5 and the enhancement from the level 5 Prodigious Astral Divine Powers Waves allowed the range of the Terra Ingurgitation to extend to a radius of five kilometers.
What kind of concept was this? It meant that the gravitational forces this move could gather was now 125 times that of when Terra Ingurgitation was at level 1.
This also meant that the prowess of Fang Xingjian's current sword attack, just in terms of the Terra Ingurgitation alone, was 125 times that of the one he had unleashed on the Regional Selection's arena.
Moreover, right now, Fang Xingjian also had the additional enhancement from the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor.
As if he had sensed the viciousness Fang Xingjian exuded this very moment, Mister Shen let out a fierce bellow and golden light started beaming brightly from all over his body.
Amidst his Heaven's Perception, he was also agitating the countless particles in his body. An extremely stable force in each of the particles continued to circulate, as if there was a small world within his body. However, due to his agitation, the many particles in the small world abruptly exploded, and the explosion of 100,000 physical molecules also pushed his powers to the limits.
The outburst of boundless energy engulfed his body in golden light, emanating even from his ears, nose, eyes, and mouth.
The full prowess of the Killing technique 'Indestructible Golden Physique' was unleashed, increasing Mister Shen's strength to a new limit. In this moment, he was confident enough to even forcibly receive an attack from a level 29 expert and still survive.
'To think that a yellow-skinned young lad is thinking of killing me in a single move. He is really overestimating himself. He doesn't know any better.'
Just as Mister Shen was thinking this, Fang Xingjian swung his sword upward, the boundless powers absorbed by Terra Ingurgitation within it. The violent powers that could flip an entire city came smashing over, and before it even got near, the shock waves tore apart the ground under Mister Shen's feet in layers.
Concurrently, the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor also burst its powers outward. 20% of Domirov's powers gushed forth, turning into layers of supporting forces that glimmered on the surface of Fang Xingjian's body, increasing the prowess of his sword attack.
Even with the support from the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor, Fang Xingjian could sense the brutal violence of the gravitational forces absorbed from the surroundings within a radius of five kilometers, which gave the feeling of a wild horse running unbridled.
In his calculations, absorbing the gravity from within a five kilometers radius would give him a prowess that was equivalent to smashing with half of Mount Tai. However, it seemed that the prowess was actually greater than what he had calculated.
As expected of the legacy from the Melancholic Monarch, a Divine level expert from 200 years ago. The prowess of the Prodigious Astral Divine Powers Waves no longer seemed to belong to a human.
If he did not have the support form the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor, if he was not able to take in and release various natural energies, if he did not have the help from the various supporting force fields, Fang Xingjian would probably not be able to control this power.
The impact of this sword could destroy landscapes, or change the flows of great rivers.
The slash of this sword would be able to split an entire city into halves.
Landing this sword strike could kill several hundreds of thousands, or even millions of people.
This was the prowess of the Melancholic Monarch's greatest legacy, the Prodigious Astral Divine Powers Waves.
The prowess of this sword attack had far surpassed Fang Xingjian's estimations.
He had not expected that the level 5 Prodigious Astral Divine Powers Waves would be so powerful.
Seeing the longsword raised high up, Mister Shen's mind completely blanked out. Even if he was able to destroy the material particles and refine the energies in the small world within his body, when he faced this sword of destruction, he could not summon any power to defend himself.
This was a divine power that brought a person into desperation! Absolute power!
Unless he was able to refine the energies from even more material particles, the power he had obtained from refining 100,000 particles was insufficient for him to fend off this attack.
Based on the Empire's studies, a human body was formed, on average, of 1.08 billion particles. However, it was rare even amongst level 29 experts for a person to be able to cultivate to the stage where one would be able to refine all 1.08 billion particles and get them to explode at the same time.
For the majority of the people, when their ether synchronization rate reached 90% and they advanced to level 28 from level 27, they would tend to have only refined the energies of a few million particles.
Regardless if it was condensing specialty seeds or refining the energy within material particles, both were very long paths for cultivators which even level 29 experts had a hard time treading.
Mister Shen let out his last bellow. Before his body had received the impact of the sword, he had already turned into dust and had entirely disappeared from the destructive power wave that was transmitted through the air.
There was almost no way to stop this attack. Fang Xingjian continued to direct the power into the air. Thankfully, since the prowess of the level 5 Terra Ingurgitation was beyond Fang Xingjian's expectations, he was aware that it was not something he could underestimate. If it was smashed into the ground, it could create unimaginable destruction.
Therefore, right from the beginning, he unleashed it upward, swinging his longsword toward the sky and directing all the power into the air.
Deafening rumbles rang out, spreading through the entire city.
The violent air currents gushed up into the air. There were no extravagant effects. It was just an upward swing of power from a sword attack. However, the supersonic shock waves produced in the air had cut through the cloud layers,creating a big hole in the stratosphere.
Countless people stared with their eyes wide-open at the scene of the sky being split open in front of them, as sunlight shone down and the universe was revealed.
At this moment, the area within a radius of several meters was covered in piercing sunlight. Endless light encompassed all of Pearl City.
The sword attack seemed to have slashed through the entire sky. Eldest Young Master Gao Anhe looked upward in a daze to see that there were no clouds nor blue sky at all. There was only the pitch-black outer space, bare, for everyone to see.
