AST 1838 - Five Village Immortal Sect, Heavenly Fate Parry’s Miraculous Effects
Instantly, the experts of Sacred Mountain melded into a single whole, as the flags Qing Shui set down drew the eyes of the dragon, allowing the unassuming formation to seem mystical and formidable.
Sheng Jun’s shock was also spectacular. She had no idea Qing Shui was this formidable in this area. She herself had dabbled in the arts and she could set up her own formations, but she was nothing more than an ant in terms of formations when compared to him.
She finally saw where this man’s confidence had come from; perhaps this formation was the key to their victory.
Qing Shui was satisfied with his current strength; the changes in the Five Elements Divine Flag allowed him to breakthrough from the rut he was in, enabling him to go further than he ever could have otherwise.
Qing Shui had been enamored with what he discovered on the other side upon stepping through the gates. The formations he knew were fragile, much like the difference between pay-to-win players and free-to-play players in online games from the past. There was simply no comparison, as one of the former could handle ten of the latter easily.
Qing Shui’s methods of casually improving the formation had allowed this formation to leap dozens of times in strength, a terrifying force to be reckoned with.
“Now the two of us can work together to kill them. You can be at ease about those guys.” Qing Shui smiled.
“You’re becoming more and more enigmatic. Do you know the strongest sect specializing in formations? Are you perhaps from there?” Sheng Jun looked at Qing Shui strangely.
“I can pledge, that I’m definitely not from there. Also, what is the name of that power?” Qing Shui was curious.
“Five Village Immortal Sect!” Sheng Jun looked at Qing Shui earnestly.
Qing Shui tried to recall anything, but he shook his head, “I don’t recognize them, but with the moniker of Immortal Sect, they should be really powerful.”
Qing Shui found this name quite strange, but he didn’t inquire further, as perhaps he would meet them in the future. If he did, he had to experience the specialty of the strongest formation sect on the continent.
“Powerful, they’re far beyond powerful. They’re a unique existence capable of trapping and killing experts ten times stronger than them and a thousand times as numerous as them. They specialize in subterfuge and capable of borrowing the Heavenly Dao to a ridiculous extent, making assassins look like fools.” Sheng Jun looked at Qing Shui as he said.
Qing Shui let slip a phrase from his previous world, making Sheng Jun speechlessly glare at him. The people in the Nine Continents did not use this phrase often and even when he used to say it here, only Qing Shui himself would understand it.
Qing Shui chuckled; he didn’t know what Sheng Jun was thinking, but it seemed that the opponents were tired of waiting. They disregarded the massive formation here as they mistakenly assumed it to be of the deceptive variety.
“Punk, do you dare come out for a duel?” The lead brute hollered at Qing Shui.
Qing Shui was noticeably shocked, as he didn’t expect this brute to like duels. It was obvious that he was nothing in their eyes and this result was better—he also wanted to duel the enemy, but he didn’t think that it would go through.
After seeing Qing Shui’s stunned expression, the brute yelled again, “So you’re just a coward. Even if I gave you a woman you wouldn’t dare touch her.”
While Qing Shui was still in a daze, this brute began taunting him, but Qing Shui wasn’t very angry with the brute’s disdain and taunts, since he didn’t treat the opponent as an equal at all. Though he was powerful, at this point, he couldn’t even harm Qing Shui.
Qing Shui’s ability to take a hit was already exceptional and with the Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda, he was confident that he could firmly suppress his opponent.
The Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda’s effects weren’t very pronounced for Qing Shui, but it would serve him well in the future, plus he wasn’t sure if it would have any other special abilities to excavate.
Since there was a Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda, he wasn’t sure if there were other formidable treasures of the Seven Slaughter, Buddha Slaughter varieties. They were similar to the pagoda in passively boosting other aspects of strength, such as attack power and spiritual energy.
He didn’t know if others possessed similar treasures. With the long-standing existence of ancient powers and inheritances, others could’ve gotten lucky, managing to refine those treasures.
Such matters were common occurrences in this massive world; a person could get injured carrying around a Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda and accidentally refine it that way.
“Don’t you find it laughable?” Qing Shui spoke as he stepped forward.
“What’s so laughable?” The brute looked at Qing Shui.
“What’s laughable is that you force yourself upon a woman, yet this woman is probably vomiting and enduring while thinking about you,” Qing Shui said as he chuckled.
The brute was enraged, given that Qing Shui had inadvertently touched a sore spot. He had actually been vomited on by a woman he snatched. Embarrassed and in a fit of rage, he slapped her to death with one palm, swearing that if a woman dared to use eyes of disgust to look at him, he would do much worse than just peel off her skin.
The brute waved a massive golden trident and charged at Qing Shui. He felt extremely vengeful, and even killing this punk wouldn’t give him respite.
Mentioning old wounds was insufferable, much like applying salt on the wound. Thus, the brute wanted to tear Qing Shui limb from limb.
The Golden Battle Halberd in Qing Shui’s hands viciously struck towards the golden trident.
The two golden weapons clashed brutally.
Qing Shui was unaffected by the impact while the opponent was sent flying. Qing Shui was dazed and he finally understood the effects of the Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda.
The brute’s strength was above his own. In normal circumstances, even if he was impervious to the brute’s attacks, he would still get knocked around like a ball.
That would be a very shameful thing.
With the Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda directly blocking attacks equivalent to his strength, Qing Shui bridged the gap between their power and even exceeded with the doubling of his strength, knocking the brute away.
The brute remained unharmed, but the result was still shocking nonetheless. Even Sheng Jun was surprised and this man had already been giving her too many surprises.
This man was making these experts seem normal and less terrifying than they were.
