"Gale is up as well. It's said that his speed is so fast that he's able to cross the Great Western Region within ten minutes."
"What's so amazing about that? It's said that if he were to go all out, you'll only be able to see a series of blurred shadows. He can surpass one's vision, causing one to be unable to see his shadow on the ground. Therefore, he has another nickname, 'Shadowless'."
"Moreover, he is at level 26 and has already grasped the ability to attack physical particles. Even if he isn't a match for Fang Xingjian, he should be able to hang on for a short period of time. This gives us a chance to see what the Vicious Knight's trump card is."
Gale seemed to be a man of few words. After stepping forward, he did not say a single word. Instead, with a move of his legs, he started moving at high speed.
His body cut across the air, bringing about streams of long air currents. His legs continuously cut across and stomped down onto the air, sending layers of ripples splattering outward. It was just like he was stepping on water.
Furthermore, Gale's speed was still increasing. To him, the air was as viscous as glue, allowing him to step on easily and continue to accelerate.
The shadows on the ground connected together and became increasingly blurry. In the blink of an eye, it had already become such that other people were unable to see the shadows clearly.
Gale's silhouette formed streams of black lines, like several tens of lightning bolts were cutting across the skies incessantly.
"To think that Gale's cultivation level has increased once again!"
Night Eagle's gaze seemed to have an expression of slight astonishment as well. The speed which Gale displayed was already something of a threat to him.
On the battlefield, Gale's body continued to emit huge amount of heat. His body was like an engine, wildly causing his speed to accelerate incessantly.
Gale felt his speed get increasingly faster as the entire world was getting increasingly slower in his Heaven's Perception. It was to the extent as if the world had came to a standstill.
A feeling of excitement surged through his entire body, making him feel as if right now, he was the one dictating the entire world.
This carried on until a palm descended from the sky. At the moment when Gale reached his greatest speed, the palm came pressing down on him with a tremendous force, slapping him down to the ground as if he were a fly. With a loud boom, a large crater was created in the ground.
Those who were still been talking just earlier had all shut up now as they looked at this scene in disbelief.
Night Eagle and Radiant Envoy also stared at Fang Xingjian in great astonishment. 'When did the Great Western Region have an additional expert of such a level?
'To think that the Vicious Knight's abilities have reached such a level... It's no wonder he's so arrogant.'
After instantly defeating Mammoth with a punch and knocking Gale unconscious with a palm, Fang Xingjian swept his gaze across the scene. For the next three full minutes, no one else dared to step forth.
Level 25 and 26 experts were already considered impressive in most of the smaller factions. After such people were instantly defeated... who else would dare to step forth?
Everyone turned their gazes toward the direction of the Polar Night Society, Illumination Society, and the Black Wings, as if they were hoping that these three top notch factions would take action.
Fang Xingjian also threw his gaze in the direction of the Black Wings and said, "Don't you want my dimensional storage equipment? Make your move then."
The Black Wings Demon laughed, retreated, and said, "Haha, I'm not a match for you. We, the Black Wings, shall give up."
When everyone heard what the Black Wings Demon said, they were all taken aback. The gaze at which they looked at Fang Xingjian with was now even more different from before. To think that he could force back the Black Wings, one of the three great factions in the Great Western Region... How powerful was the Vicious Knight?
Fang Xingjian waved his hand and said, "Of course, you guys aren't a match for me, but all of you can attack together. Night Eagle, Radiant Envoy, Black Wings Demon... If we don't fight it out, I don't think that you guys will be able to accept this. Since that's the case, then all of you can attack at once."
Night Eagle frowned, feeling displeased at Fang Xingjian's display of arrogance and self-importance. He said, "Vicious Knight, it's true that your abilities are above ours. I don't deny that. But even though we aren't a match for you on a one-on-one fight, to think that you want all three of us to attack you together! Aren't you being too arrogant?"
The Radiant Envoy shook his head, but he did not think that Fang Xingjian would be able to deal with all three of them at once either.
Fang Xingjian laughed, "If you can defeat me, I'll hand over the dimensional storage equipment to your three factions. If you still don't take any action, then you won't have any more chances."
Even if the three were to win by joining forces, it would not be a admirable victory. However, this matter concerned the dimensional storage equipment, and thus, both Night Eagle and the Radiant Envoy hesitated.
The two of them exchanged a glance. Then the Night Eagle took a step forward and said, "Since that's the case, then please give us your guidance."
With that, the Night Eagle put out his palm, and the area within a 100-meter range instantly turned into a state of darkness. It was as if the entire world had been submerged into endless darkness. Through Fang Xingjian's Heaven's Perception, not only was his vision gone, even all the light and sound waves had dissipated. His entire consciousness seemed to be immersed in eternal darkness.
Night Eagle had performed the Polar Night Society's ultimate Killing technique-Eternal Night Barrier. It seemed as though the entire world had welcomed eternal darkness, and this state in which the entire world had sunk into a dark abyss spread out, eliminating all of the opponent's senses.
The Eternal Night Society's creed was that the entire world would eventually sink into the final darkness, and this was also what the Eternal Night Barrier had been based on when it was created.
Right now, Fang Xingjian seemed as if he really could not sense anything. He just stood there dazedly in the darkness, completely motionless.
As Night Eagle made his move, the Radiant Envoy took action too. With a tap of his finger, light penetrated through the darkness. It was as if a world was being born. The first light pierced through the dusk, bringing about hope, life, and a brand new world.
The light sword pierced through the air, and with a weight which seemed like it was going to open up a brand new world, it slashed out toward Fang Xingjian.
Wherever the light sword passed by, everything would seemed twisted and chaotic. It was as if many new worlds were being born.
This move, the World Creation Light Sword, was the Illumination Society's ultimate Killing technique. With the Illumination Society's principles that the world had been born from the first ray of light, the Killing technique held the heavy weight of creating and developing a world. It specialized in applying pressure and crushing various physical particles.
Right now, a sword attack like this was slashing out toward the seemingly defenseless Fang Xingjian.
No one had expected that the Illumination Society and the Eternal Night Society, two sects which seemed as if they could not tolerate each other, would display such a terrifying battle prowess when they put their Killing techniques together, stacking up their prowess.
Just as the light sword inched down and was about to slash down onto Fang Xingjian, a layer of black glow appeared on Fang Xingjian's body.
The Universal Truth Longsword was activated, and a state of being the one and only soared up into the sky. It mercilessly pushed away the hindrances of the Eternal Night Barrier.
Following that, the Prodigious Demolition Sword Physique was activated as well, and Fang Xingjian pushed out, colliding with the World Creation Light Sword. Under the Radiant Envoy's gaze of disbelief, the light sword shattered and completely disintegrated.
Both Night Eagle and the Radiant Envoy turned pale. Then they summoned up all their powers, wanting to attack a second time.
After relying on his level 40 sword techniques to break through the two killing moves, Fang Xingjian's body swayed a little. He then became so fast, it was as if he was going to turn into two people. At this moment, Fang Xingjian launched out a punch each toward Night Eagle and the Radiant Envoy.
