Chapter 623: Extreme Combat Strength?
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: - -
Right now, Qin Wentian's physique was incomparably huge, akin to the body of a fiendgod. His palms shimmered with a torrential astral light, suppressing both heaven and earth.
Di Shi and that manifestation of the gigantic azure roc behind him attacked at the same moment, causing resplendent lights of pure destruction to engulf the sky. In fact, in the midst of their battle, faint shadowy heavenly constellations actually appeared, causing the spectators to all be wholly taken aback. The battle of two Heavenly Dipper Sovereigns actually formed a faint manifestation of heavenly constellations. Although this wasn't a true constellation, it still caused the hearts of those who saw it to shiver.
"BIND!" Di Shi roared, a boundless azure light shot forth from the azure roc as several silhouettes of demonic birds suddenly appeared beside Qin Wentian, grabbing hold of him.
"What power is that?!" The hearts of the spectators pounded violently. Each ferocious bird of prey seemed to burst out of the void, locking down Qin Wentian. The azure roc roared in a savage manner, the light glinting in its eyes filled the hearts of people with terror.
"You can't escape death even if you want to!" Di Shi icily roared, seemingly transforming into something resembling a demonic overlord, as he advanced towards Qin Wentian.
For an era-suppressing genius, they stood at the foremost of the era in this incomparably vast Royal Sacred Region. How could they be someone ordinary? They simply weren't something normal geniuses could be compared to. Although his temperament was insufferably arrogant, his combat prowess was redoubtable. If not, he wouldn't have been awarded the title 'era-suppressing genius.'
"Truly powerful," the spectators all sighed in their hearts, this was the reason why the eight of them became known as the era-suppressing geniuses. Before this, because Di Shi was ousted from the top ten in the Immortal Martial Realm rankings, there were some that started to doubt him, saying that he wasn't worthy of the title. However, the vast majority understood that even though he was ranked #11 in the Immortal Martial Realm, Di Shi was still Di Shi, as powerful as before.
"Are you even worthy?" Qin Wentian stared at Di Shi. Abruptly, a formless sword might enveloped this entire space as a third eye opened in the center of his brows. Even his Great Dream astral soul appeared behind his back.
Stomping down, the heaven and earth cried out as the formless sword might condensed into true substance, penetrating past the body of Di Shi. At this instant, Di Shi groaned in misery, his flight upwards towards Qin Wentian abruptly slowed down.
An unparalleled burst of strength gushed forth. Despite the powerful and terrifying binding effect on him, Qin Wentian forcibly stomped down once more. At this moment, Di Shi felt as though he was mired in an illusion. He was no longer on the Sacred Battle Platform, but was in a separate dimension instead. Qin Wentian brought him to this dimension, this was his dreamscape.
"Dreamscape!" Di Shi turned ashen as he stared at that Great Dream astral soul. Although he knew this was a dreamscape, he discovered that despite his powerful strength of will, he was still unable to extricate himself from this dream Qin Wentian created for him.
"I WON'T BE FOOLED!" Di Shi howled in madness. The azure roc roared, intensifying the binding effect on Qin Wentian. His bloodline thrummed even more violently, the power from the blood of an ancient primordial azure roc granted him a unique strength.
"I don't need to fool you. This is my dream, a dream that will reap your life away. Enjoy this," Qin Wentian's voice sounded out as he stomped down again. Di Shi discovered several gigantic silhouettes appearing beside him. These were monsters formed from the stuff of nightmares, sealing his path away. They each wielded a large devilish halberd in their hands as they all pierced out at the same instant towards Di Shi.
"All of these are mere illusions." Di Shi's eyes flickered with an incomparable sharpness.
Puchi... A crisp sound rang out as the halberds pieced into Di Shi's body.
"ARGHH!" A violent cry wrecked with pain echoed out, Di Shi's countenance instantly paled as his entire body trembled, in the throes of excruciating pain.
Qin Wentian stomped again as a formless sword slashed towards Di Shi, causing Di Shi to groan in misery as blood leaked from the corners of his lips.
Such a scene caused all the hearts of the spectators to be filled extreme bewilderment. What happened to Di Shi?
They couldn't see the dreamscape Qin Wentian created. They only saw Di Shi's body trembling violently of its own accord before he coughed out blood. They were unable to feel the pain Di Shi felt, they didn't understand how real and how terrifying this dreamscape really was!
"Dreamforce, he has entered a dreamscape!" Someone exclaimed in wonder. The faces of those from the supreme Di Clan all drastically changed. Although Di Shi knew that he was in a dream, he was still stuck inside it. The dreamscape Qin Wentian created was simply too tyrannical.
Only Qin Wentian understood that the dream he created wasn't powerful enough to be termed as tyrannical. Back then, the life time he had experienced in the Royal Tomb of Grand Xia, that life which filled him with endless despair, that was what 'tyrannical' truly meant.
This art was a technique he learned from the Great Dream Immortal Art which he obtained from the Royal Tomb of Grand Xia. In this dreamscape, he could make one feel agony, make one feel despair.
"Di Shi, your death date has arrived," Qin Wentian coldly spoke. His words causing the countenance of Di Shi to turn incredibly unsightly. His death date?
The numerous devilish halberds stirred in his flesh, causing him to feel an agony even worse than death.
"Qin Wentian is similarly so powerful as well." The spectators were all shocked. In this grand battle of nine experts, each of them all possessed unimaginably powerful trump cards. The intensity of their battles had far surpassed the scale of their imaginations.
Qin Wentian walked towards Di Shi, his palm glowing with terrifying runic lights. Astral light flashed as a fearsome destructive power drifted over. Abruptly, his silhouette flickered as he slammed a palm towards the forehead of Di Shi. In that instant, a wave of star-seizing palm imprints erupted forth, containing enough might to bury everything in this space.
"GO TO HELL!" Di Shi suddenly inclined his head, his eyes filled with an incomparable resolution. A blinding azure light exploded out from him as countless birds of prey directly bombarded into Qin Wentian, their destructive talons ravaging Qin Wentian's body.
"DIE NOW!" Di Shi roared, the dreamscape broke and this sudden change caused everyone spectating to be thunderstruck with shock.
"IMPUDENT!" The Human Emperor Ye Qingyun stepped out as he hollered in rage. Resplendent light shone from him as he stated, "Di Shi borrowed the power of an external item, why did the administrator of the Sacred Battle Platform not kill him immediately?"
"That isn't an external item, it had already merged with Di Shi as one. And even if that was an external item, it's not a divine weapon." An expert from the supreme Di Clan smugly replied. His words causing the hearts of the crowd to pound violently. Only now did they understand that Di Shi depended on an item for that final burst of strength which broke him out of the dreamscape.
No wonder he was so confident, so it turned out that it was true he had become stronger. Those of the Di Clan said that this item had already fused with Di Shi. But what exactly was it?
Was Qin Wentian going to die here?
Mo Qingcheng's hands were tightly clenched as her countenance paled.
The countenances of those from the Battle Sword Sect also turned incredibly unsightly. It wasn't so easy for a character like Qin Wentian to appear in their Battle Sword Sect. How could they be willing to see him die in battle in such a manner?
The hearts of everyone were tightly clenched, the power which Di Shi erupted with should have already reached the level of one at the supreme-tier. No wonder he dared to challenge every Heavenly Dipper Sovereign in the Royal Sacred Region, aiming for the title of Unrivaled in Heavenly Dipper.
At this moment, on the Sacred Battle Platform, Qin Wentian executed the Incarnation Burst Technique as resplendent runic light enveloped his body. He howled in rage as an overwhelming torrential might gushed out, negating the force Di Shi summoned. The runes then transformed into a singular gargantuan palm imprint blotting out the skies as it swept forth, destroying space, forcing the two of them apart.
"Chi!" Qin Wentian and Di Shi both coughed out blood.
Qin Wentian's countenance was currently incredibly unsightly to behold. His aura wavered, he was grievously injured. He looked at Di Shi as he stated, "That power didn't belong to you."
"It has already fused with me completely. It's now a strength that belongs to me." Di Shi's gaze contained an incomparable balefulness as he stared back at Qin Wentian. "Also, this doesn't violate the rules, it isn't a divine weapon. And let me remind you Qin Wentian. On this platform if I don't die, you cannot concede and get off it. You are dead for sure, NOBODY CAN STOP ME!"
"Does the rules allow that?" Qin Wentian stared at the administrator.
"Yes," a voice replied. Seeing that Qin Wentian still didn't die despite of that, the hearts of everyone trembled. Earlier, the force Qin Wentian unleashed at that last moment was actually comparable to that ultimate strike of Di Shi.
"In that case, medicinal pills are also allowed since they aren't divine weapons." Qin Wentian softly spoke as he took out several bottles of pills, causing the spectators to stare at him dumbfoundedly.
Qin Wentian chose a bottle and gulped down several medicinal pills in it. Very quickly, his aura started to surge once more, recovering to his peak. After that, under the thunderstruck gaze of the crowd, Qin Wentian chose another bottle and swallowed a few pills as his injuries began to recover at a blinding speed.
"Having a fifth-ranked alchemist as a girlfriend is simply too wonderful." The crowd perspired. Only now did they remember that the Holy Maiden of the Medicine Sovereign Valley was a fifth-ranked alchemist. And considering her relationship with Qin Wentian, how could she not give him valuable medicinal pills?
In any case, if one couldn't finish Qin Wentian off in one shot, he could still recover even if he suffered the most grievous of injuries. However, the other participants didn't have such an advantage.
"This fight has not ended yet. The power Di Shi exploded forth with earlier was simply too terrifying. He said that an item fused with him, but what exactly was it? It seemed to be the essence of a true ancient primordial roc." The hearts of the crowd shivered. It seemed that Qin Wentian was still in danger.
"Since this battle hasn't concluded and you have recovered to the peak through the aid of the medicinal pills, let me be the one to fight against you in the next battle." At this moment, Liu Lan stared at Qin Wentian, his countenance ice cold. Di Shi didn't say anything, he was similarly injured and needed a period of time to recuperate. Earlier, he too felt that at that final instant, Qin Wentian also exploded forth with a strength far stronger compared to his usual might. Qin Wentian had his own trump cards and let alone now that Qin Wentian's condition was restored to the peak, he might as well take the chance to recover first before he kill Qin Wentian.
"Oh? Taking turns to fight me? Wanting to be unrivaled in Heavenly Dipper? Just as well, I want to find out how strong exactly someone at the supreme-tier is." Qin Wentian stared straight at Liu Lan, the battle intent radiating from his eyes towered up the heavens, showing no fear at all. Since he dared to accept the battle today, he clearly wanted to feel how strong the combat prowess of these individuals were. Only under such a pressure would he be able to force himself to the limits, improving from there.
Only facing those who had comprehended a true intent on the Sacred Battle Platform would be able to make him improve further.
The stone platforms rotated. Di Shi's platform moved away from the center while Liu Lan's moved up, facing directly against Qin Wentian.
"This is a battle fanatic, earlier when I saw him, he exuded a sunshine demeanor with a quiet temperament. Who would have imagined he would be this fierce when it comes to combat? No wonder he has such attainments, where exactly do the limits of this top ranker of the Immortal Martial Realm lay?" Many silently speculated in their hearts.
At this moment, Liu Lan advanced towards Qin Wentian and instantly, Qin Wentian felt a wave of apocalyptic might enveloping this entire space, it even felt like his body was about to explode. Lightning containing a domineering killing intent blasted down repeatedly, unceasingly slamming into his body with devastating might. However, Qin Wentian was akin to a War Divinity Fiendgod, his immense body standing upright in the middle of heaven and earth, unshakable and immovable!
