AST 1675 - The Battle Between Experts
"Don't you feel that you're too confident?" Qing Shui looked in their direction, with a strong will to fight. However, no matter how much a person enjoyed challenging others, they would still have reservations. As long as one was alive, they wouldn't be able to toss aside everything.
"You'll know in a while if I'm confident or not. Make your move. Otherwise, you might not even have a chance to do so later." The old man slowly brought out a huge violet colored long saber.
Immortal Slaying Demonic Saber！
Qing Shui knew that what the old man said earlier included some elements of psychological attack. It was also a form of pressurizing the opponent. Qing Shui wouldn't be intimidated from just a few words the opponents said and he took out his Golden Battle Halberd.
Tantai Lingyan and the others who were on the ground were very anxious as well, especially Tantai Lingyan. She wanted her old turtle to go and help Qing Shui, but Qing Shui had told her time and time again that he would be find. The old turtle needed to be by her side so that if there were any sudden change to the situation, it could still provide them with some defense with its terrifying defense.
Moreover, Qing Shui had already set up formations all around the place. Tantai Lingyan and the others were also a part of the Four Phases Formation. Formation Masters could set up their formations anywhere through the forces of the world.
Diamond Staff, Phoenix Battle Intent, Nine Palace Laws, Battle God Halo...
Qing Shui's, the Dark Phoenix's, and Long Zhu`er's abilities had increased tremendously at a terrifying rate. With the confidence in his own powerful defense, Qing Shui dashed over.
Right now, the situation was three versus three. Qing Ming, in addition to the Dark Phoenix and Long Zhu`er were three. The opposing side had three as well.
When Qing Shui made his move, Long Zhu`er moved as well. Shiny spider thread shot out abruptly toward the old man on the right.
Qing Shui wasn't worried. Right now, the Dark Phoenix's and Long Zhu`er's abilities were very powerful. Moreover, their defenses were the strongest. Their resilience toward damage would cause the opponents to feel helpless.
Right now, what Qing Shui needed to do was to hold back the old man in the middle. He could only drag out the battle so that he would get closer toward being victorious.
The stronger the experts engaged in battles, the more dangerous it was. It wasn't that it was hard for one to die, but rather, every move could lead to a life or death situation.
Nine Stances of Ancient Divine Battle Technique!
Qing Shui performed the Nine Stances of Ancient Divine Battle Technique. It was extremely profound, combining attack and defense in one, with the essence of the Way of Nature. While its attack was neither that fierce or lethal, it had the most rustic and domineering One with Heaven.
With time, Qing Shui's understanding of the Nine Stances of Ancient Divine Battle Technique gre deeper. The Nine Stances of Ancient Divine Battle Technique required an extremely high comprehension toward the Heavenly Dao. The stronger the spiritual sense, the stronger the prowess of the Nine Stances of Ancient Divine Battle Technique. This was the most important. Of course, one's abilities was also a necessity.
Qing Shui's speed was very fast and he struck out abruptly with his Nine Stances of Ancient Divine Battle Technique. However, before that, with a single thought, he performed the Art of Pursuing.
Speed was power. A world-shaking sound rang out in the air. Qing Shui retreated fiercely, and as he did so, he kept on negating the strong power that had came from the opponent.
The old man didn't move, but was extremely taken aback. IT was because there had been some changes to this young man's earlier power and in his own body. As the changes were very sudden and obvious, he already felt very unaccustomed to his body.
The old man swung the Immortal Slaying Demonic Saber in his hand and an aura that was like wind circled around him. Qing Shui could sense it from afar. Not only had his opponent's speed recovered, he had even become faster than before.
Qing Shui felt helpless. Although the earlier attack didn't inflict much injuries on himself, he already felt uncomfortable all over. HOwever, he was also gradually recovering and was a lot better.
This time around, the old man no longer waited. His Immortal Slaying Demonic Saber drew out an eerie cold gleam and disappeared together with the old man.
Although others might think that the old man had disappeared, Qing Shui could see that the old man was swinging his saber like a bolt of lightning and flying toward him. As Qing Shui had the Nine Palace Laws, in the Nine Palace's domain and positionings, he was the ruler. Therefore, the old man was greatly restricted within the five elements.
Therefore, Qing Shui could see the old man's action. Despite so, his speed was still unbelievably fast.
Qing Shui didn't hesitate anymore and just applied the Emperor's Qi on the old man. The old man's abilities abruptly dropped by 20% and that feeling for when he was attacking at great speed, was so bad that he felt like puking blood.
The Emperor's Qi could weaken the 20% of all the opponent's powers, including speed. When the old man was feeling very oppressed, Qing Shui made his move and pierced out with his Golden Battle Halberd.
Despite being in such a situation, the old man moved and dodged Qing Shui ever so slightly. The Immortal Slaying Demonic Saber, sticking close to the Golden Battle Halberd, slashed out toward Qing Shui.
Qing Shui's strength bounced off the old man's Immortal Slaying Demonic Saber in a manner that was called the Collapse Sutra in his previous life's fist arts. Just this alone could allow him to dodge this powerful attack.
In this short engagement, Qing Shui felt as if all the blood in his body had been lit up. It was a strange feeling. He didn't feel fear, but rather, the eagerness for him to try grew increasingly stronger.
Nine Continents Mountain!
With a single thought from Qing Shui, the Nine Continents Mountain smashed out toward the old man. Qing Shui charged out concurrently as well. The Nine Stances of Ancient Divine Battle Technique was performed ceaselessly, as if it would never stop.
At the beginning, the old man was also thinking of dragging out and reducing Qing Shui's endurance. However, it hadn't been long when he realized that he was wrong. The Nine Palace Laws caused his own depletion to increase by a lot. On the other hand, Qing Shui could still regain a little of his stamina. Even if Qing Shui's depletion weren't negated, this still had a tremendous effect toward a dragged out battle.
Immortal Slaying God Killing Blow！
After the old man pushed back the Nine Continents Mountain, his Immortal Slaying Demonic Saber exuded a dark red glow that looked amazing amidst the sparkle. The smell of blood exuded reached 3,000 Li in the surroundings.
Qing Shui frowned. That huge Immortal Slaying Demonic Saber seemed to be like a sharp demonic sword from hell, and the engulfing aura it exuded caused all of his pores to contract.
Nine Stances of Ancient Divine Battle Technique, Riding The Wind And Breaking The Waves!
Qing Shui didn't dare to lower down his guard and he struck out with his Golden Battle Halberd. The heavy and rustic Golden Battle Halberd was also exuding brilliant golden light, just like a small sun.
A golden glow appeared on Qing Shui's body, and it was as if he was wearing golden battle armor.
Golden Battle God!
The Nine Yang Golden Body and the Golden Battle God Inheritance had merged completely. This was the greatest progress Qing Shui had made over the past few years.
A majestic aura that was like that of a mountain was sent out and the Golden Battle Halberd started spinning rapidly in tandem with Qing Shui's movements. It created a golden light vortex that got increasingly bigger in size and expanded out toward the surroundings.
A series of deafening explosive sounds rang out in the air and golden light shot out in all directions while the dark red glow continued to expand out. All the mountains in the distance were instantly crushed, sending stone fragments into the air with the explosions.
When they came to a stop in the air, Qing Shui wiped off the blood on the corners of his lips. The old man didn't seem to have changed at all, but his gaze when looking at Qing Shui appeared to be extremely solemn.
