Chapter 713: Submerged Wind Braking Blades
The black-colored chain was just like a poisonous snake as it suddenly penetrated the air and transformed into a blurry black line that shot explosively toward Yao Lao a short distance away.
The tip of the chain was unusually sharp and filled with a mysterious rune. Circles of spiraling lines covered the tip of the chain. Under the energy activation of Protector Wu, some evil aura seeped out from it. This deep, profound chain was not an ordinary metal chain.
Yao Lao also did not dare to slight this chain that pierced through the sky toward him. This 'Hall of Souls' was extremely mysterious. Their attacks also appeared to be able to cause massive damage toward spiritual bodies. However, it was fortunate that Yao Lao was not an ordinary spiritual body. With the protection of the 'Bone Chilling Flame', he was not totally without any ability to fight back against the powerful hunter of the 'Hall of Souls'.
The dense white flame in his palm withered up and down before suddenly transforming into a fire arrow that shot out explosively. Finally, it violently collided with that black chain.
A low, deep sound appeared when the two collided. However, there was no overly intense energy explosion sound. There was only a dense white ripple force that was formed within the dark-black circle quietly expanding out. The air also shook a little wherever the force spread.
The black-colored chain collided with the fire arrow. There was a huge gap in strength compared with the attack that Protector Wu had expected. He could even faintly feel the strange intertwining feeling of hot and cold with one another. That feeling was swiftly transmitted from the chain, causing the Dou Qi in his body to fluctuate.
"No wonder you were able to escape the capture of the 'Hall of Souls' back then. You actually relied on the strength of this 'Heavenly Flame'!" The chain withdrew after it attacked before it lingered around Protector Wu's side. The pair of red eyes stared at Yao Chen opposite of him and spoke with some surprise.
The strength that an ordinary spiritual body could unleash was greatly reduced regardless of how strong their spiritual strength was when they met a hunter from the 'Hall of Souls'. The latter's weapon was uniquely manufactured and possessed the specialized effect of restraining a spiritual body. This kind of restraint, however, had lost much of its effect when faced with a spiritual body that possessed a 'Heavenly Flame' and some natural spirit objects.
It was just as he had said. Back then, Yao Lao had indeed relied on the strength of the 'Bone Chilling Flame' in order to escape being captured by the 'Hall of Souls' and survive.
Yao Lao's gaze looked indifferently at Protector Wu, who had black fog writhing around his body. He tightened his hand a little and the dense white flame swiftly agglomerated in his hand. A moment later, it formed a white ruler that was a little smaller than Xiao Yan's Heavy Xuan Ruler. A flame rose on the ruler but it gave people a kind of ice-cold feeling. However, if one were to really come into contact with what seemed like a cold flame, it was likely that one would instantly transform into a pile of ashes.
"The restraining effect your 'Hall of Souls' has toward a spiritual body does not have much use against me. Hence, you should reveal your true strength. Otherwise, the Misty Cloud Sect will be the place that you will die today." Yao Lao pointed the white ruler at Protector Wu from a distance and slowly spoke.
"Hmph, your words are indeed arrogant. Even without the restraining effect, you are actually thinking of killing this protector in your spiritual body state? Aren't you dreaming?" Protector Wu also laughed coldly when he heard this. His arm immediately shook and three black figures carried a 'clang' sound as they extended forcefully from his back. Finally, they became just like three poisonous snakes that continuously lingered over his head.
"Triple Soul Breaking Chain!"
A hand that contained a black fog was extended out. The hand seal immediately changed and the three chains that lingered over Protector Wu's head carried the whizzing sound of rushing wind as they abruptly shot out.
The three chains transformed into black lines and coincidentally sealed off all of Yao Lao's retreat path as they crossed each other. Clearly, this Protector Wu had already reached a skillful stage when it came to using a strange weapon like a chain.
Yao Lao waved his sleeves as he coldly looked at the three black lines which were magnified in his eyes. He flicked his five fingers and five dense white flames swiftly agglomerated and took shape. They lingered over his body like long snakes before finally shooting out in a sudden explosive manner and collided head-on with the three chains.
The chains collided with the dense white flame and waves of metal-like sounds were emitted. Some sparks even shot out. However, regardless of how strange and unexpected the chain attacks were, the five long fire snakes that Yao Lao commanded were able to hold them ofg. Yao Lao's sophisticated fighting experience was indeed extraordinary.
Protector Wu clearly felt extremely surprise after failing to achieve any actual effect despite using this tactic. He could clearly sense that there would be a cold and hot intersecting feeling spread along the chain each time the chain and the flame collided. He was really unfamiliar with this kind of feeling.
"This old man who will not die is indeed powerful. No wonder the 'Hall of Souls' allowed him to escape despite having dispatched three expert protectors back then. In the past, I thought that there were some lies in those fellow's words. It is unexpected… that he is really tormenting and troublesome." Protector Wu's heart also grew increasingly more serious as both parties attacks became more intense. The strength of Yao Lao's spirit and the troublesome 'Bone Chilling Flame' had far exceeded his expectations.
"Yun Shan, quickly finish Xiao Yan off!" That unusual temperature caused the black fog on Protector Wu's body to fluctuate after he violently collided with Yao Lao again. At this moment, he no longer cared about his face and cried out to Yun Shan who had begun an intense fight with Xiao Yan far away.
Yao Lao's expression also sank when he heard Protector Wu's cry. The dense white flame on his body grew even more dense. His attacks also suddenly became sharper. Looking at the situation, there was some difficulty if Yao Lao wanted to kill the latter within a short period of time. After all, despite the restraining effects of Protector Wu on spiritual bodies being reduced to the minimum with the help of the 'Bone Chilling Flame', this fellow was also a Dou Zong class expert no matter how one put it. Killing him was easier said than done.
Yun Shan in the distant sky was also slightly startled when he heard Protector Wu's cry. That old fellow was actually this strong? Even Protector Wu had difficulty finishing him off?
The surprise in his heart continued for a moment before Yun Shan suddenly waved his sleeve. A wild, violent Dou Qi shook Xiao Yan who was attacking him away. His body immediately moved back while a majestic Dou Qi suddenly erupted out from his body in all directions.
"Little bastard. Originally, I wanted to play around with you. However, from the looks of it now, the situation does not allow me to do so. Since that is the case, I shall finish you off with one attack. Yun Shan gave Xiao Yan a dense smile as he shook his sleeves. A majestic deep-green energy immediately fluctuated as it erupted from his head. It swiftly wiggled and formed a green longsword that was over a feet long.
The surface of the longsword was unusually dark and gloomy. Its entire body was without luster. However, the moment the longsword agglomerated and formed, the surrounding suddenly fluctuated. Clearly, this longsword that was completely agglomerated from Yun Shan's powerful Dou Qi possessed an extremely great amount of energy.
Xiao Yan looked at the huge energy longsword that was rotating while it suspended above Yun Shan's head. He sensed the frightening energy that was contained within it, and his face changed drastically. The wings on his back were flapped as he immediately withdrew some distance. The seal on his hand also suddenly changed as he did so.
The powerful Dou Qi within his body began to swiftly gallop following the swift seal formation within Xiao Yan's hand. Finally, it quickly passed through a couple of specific veins under Xiao Yan's solemn focus…
Xiao Yan's essence and attention were gathered to extreme levels under the pressure of such a crucial point. The little troubles that would occasionally appear when he agglomerated Dou Qi during his usual training had become unusually smooth at this moment.
The Dou Qi in his body flowed unceasingly as they poured into the couple of specific veins before flowing into Xiao Yan's palms. Following the flow of such enormous amounts of Dou Qi into it, his pair of originally long arms transformed into something large at this moment. A bright powerful glow gradually surfaced. In the end, it appeared just like a bright sun that was extremely glaring.
The powerful glow that suddenly erupted from Xiao Yan's palm also caused Yun Shan to knit his brows slightly. Why was it that this little bastard had a never-ending number of trump cards? It was really troublesome… a thought rotated within his heart before he immediately glanced at the battleground between Protector Wu and Yao Lao in the distant. His heart became even more surprise especially when he saw that the former had actually ended up in a disadvantageous position under Yao Lao's sharp attacks.
"Looks like I cannot delay any longer. I need to hurry up and finish off this little fellow. Otherwise, if the old fellow is allowed to free his hands, things would be bad for me…"
A thought flashed across Yun Shan's heart as his eyes suddenly turned stern. The seal on both of his hands changed abruptly, and a low cry that was filled with a chill killing intent resounded across the sky.
"Submerged Wind Braking Blades!"
An unusual sharp sword whistle suddenly sounded after the cry appeared. Everyone suddenly raised their heads only to see that the Dou Qi longsword above Yun Shan's head actually began to rotate wildly. An unusual sharp whistle was emitted from it.
"Hah! Hah!" The sound continued…
Yun Shan's hand seal changed and his finger pointed toward Xiao Yan in the distance. That violently rotating longsword immediately rushed out explosively!
The speed of the longsword was so fast that could even penetrate through the barrier of the air. Hence, it appeared at a spot that was merely dozens of meters from Xiao Yan within a few flickers.
The faces of Hai Bodong and the others within the chaotic battleground instantly turned a lot paler when they saw this frighteningly powerful attack by Yun Shan. Despite being such a great distance apart, they could still sense the frightening energy that was contained within the longsword. If they were to be struck by it, they understood that they would at least end up being seriously injured.
Yun Yun delicate hands also quietly covered her red lips as she stood near the wedding stage in the open ground. Her graceful, moving, pretty face displayed some paleness. This kind of attack was something that even an expert whose strength was at the peak of the Dou Huang class would have a difficult time receiving, much less the current Xiao Yan…
However, the person involved, Xiao Yan, had suddenly shut his eyes slowly at this very moment in front of the countless number of gazes that contained various emotions. When he did so, the seal on his hand had suddenly changed. Immediately, a similarly majestic and powerful energy abruptly erupted in the sky!
"Open Mountain Seal!"
An energy handprint that was a few dozens of feet in size suddenly surfaced following the low, deep cry that resounded in Xiao Yan's heart.
The moment this energy handprint appeared, the air around Xiao Yann became like a ripple that swiftly fluctuated…
Chapter 714: Trump Card, Three Colored Fire Lotus
The enormous energy handprint surfaced in front of the countless number of shocked gazes. It immediately paused for a moment before it carried an unusually powerful pressure and energy fluctuation as it violently clashed against the energy longsword that shot over.
The two extremely frightening attacks met in the sky an instant later. A thunder-like explosion suddenly resounded over the sky. Despite having been prepared for it, there were still quite a number of people whose ears rang for awhile. Even their vision had become a little blurry.
Waves of substance-like energy ripples fluctuated wildly from the spot where the two fierce attacks collided. Even the space itself had become distorted under this frightening energy collision. From this, one could tell just how frightening the attacks the two people had unleashed were.
The distorted space also enveloped the spots where Xiao Yan and Yun Shan stood. Hence, the many gazes that were looking at the sky did not know just who among these two people had obtained an advantage in this frightening energy collision.
The energy ripple that spread through the air slowly faded away in front of the focus of a countless number of gazes a moment later. That distorted space had also gradually become clear.
After the space recovered, the two figures on the distant sky appeared in front of everyone's sight. Everyone involuntarily became startled when they saw the human figures that appeared in the sky.
At this moment, both of Xiao Yan's sleeves were torn apart, revealing his naked arms. There were also numerous small blood traces that faintly covered his arms. His face was also a little pale and the corner of his mouth had the vague traces of blood. His originally powerful aura had also become much weaker at this moment. Clearly, the soul-stirring big collision earlier had still shaken him until he had received some serious injuries despite him having been considered to have received it.
Although Xiao Yan appeared miserable, Yun Shan on the other side was also not safe and sound. His clothes were just as broken and his shriveled hand that was revealed outside his sleeves trembled slightly. A thread of blood followed his palm and flowed downward before finally moving along his finger and quietly dripped down.
Quite a number of people quietly inhaled a breath of cool air as they looked at Yun Shan with blood dripping from his hand. Their gazes immediately looked at the black-robed, young man with surprise. No one expected this fellow to be able to receive the frightening blow from Yun Shan earlier and also cause some injuries to appear on the latter's body…
Jia Xingtian, Hai Bodong, and the others in the chaotic battleground also revealed stunned expressions as they looked at Yun Shan, who revealed trembling hands and a dark-water expression. Although they always had confidence in Xiao Yan, their hearts still involuntarily shook when they personally witnessed Xiao Yan receive that frightening attack that could seriously injure even an expert at the peak of the Dou Huang class.
Yun Yun by the wedding stage also quietly sighed in relief when she saw that Xiao Yan was not killed by Yun Shan's attack. However, a complicated emotion flashed across her pretty face when she saw the blood dripping from Yun Shan's hand. She did not wish to see Xiao Yan die in Yun Shan's hand but she similarly did not wish to see Yun Shan be killed by Xiao Yan. However, at this moment, she could only quietly wait for the end of the battle below.
"You damn brat. It is really unexpected that this ancestor still underestimated you in the end…" Yun Shan's expression was gloomy as his hand wiped over his robes and removed the fresh blood on it. After which, he raised his head and looked at Xiao Yan whose aura was a little sluggish. He spoke in a dense voice, "It is likely that the Dou Technique earlier is of quite a high class right? The Dou Qi it requires should also be extremely great. How many times can the current you use it?"
Xiao Yan wiped away the trace of blood from the corner of his mouth as he said faintly, "Enough to let you know what a serious injury is called…"
"Is that so?" Yun Shan laughed in a cold and dark manner as he said, "That earlier Dou Technique of yours might indeed have a great strength that even I dare not underestimate. However, I'm afraid that it is still a little lacking if you want to rely on it to kill a Dou Zong."
Xiao Yan narrowed his eyes. His fist had also slowly tightened. Although Yun Shan's words did indeed cause people to be irritated, it was also true. With his current strength, using this 'Open Mountain Seal,' which he was not very familiar with, to neutralize Yun Shan's similarly extremely powerful attack was already quite outstanding. Unless Yun Shan simply stood there and forcefully received a blow without any defenses, trying to rely on this to defeat him in one go would likely be quite difficult…
Xiao Yan tightened his fist and his gaze also glanced at the battle situation at Yao Lao's side. He involuntarily knit his brows.
At this moment, Yao Lao and that Protector Wu had basically descended into an unusually fiery hot stalemate. Both parties used all of their killing moves with many dangerous situations repeatedly appearing. However, they still maintained a strange equilibrium. No matter how they increased their strength, they still had difficulty causing the other party to feel any actual harm. From the looks of the situation, it may be said that Yao Lao had a faint advantage but Xiao Yan, who clearly understood Yao Lao, knew that due to him being a Spiritual Body, Yao Lao's endurance was far inferior to an elite Dou Zong despite him possessing the strength to contend against one. Hence, this kind of stalemate was in reality not very beneficial to Yao Lao. Once that Protector Wu managed to take an opportunity when Yao Lao's strength weakened, it was likely that a big change would appear in this battle…
Xiao Yan slowly withdrew his gaze from the battleground. He once again looked at the chaotic big battleground in the distant. The fighting and killing there was even more chaotic and intense. There would frequently be some experts who fell from it with serious injuries, ending up with an unknown fate. The Misty Cloud Sect could be said to have sent out all their elites at this moment, going all out to block the sharp attacks by the experts from the alliance.
Xiao Yan's gaze swiftly swept over Hai Bodong and the couple of other people within the chaotic battleground. He let out a slight sigh of relief. It was fortunate that they were in an advantageous situation in this exchange between top level experts. It was likely that if they were given sufficient time, they would be able to defeat their opponents. At that time, once Hai Bodong and the other experts managed to free themselves, this chaotic battleground would begin to stabilize itself.
During the movement of his gaze, Xiao Yan had also glanced at the area below the Misty Cloud Mountain. There was the faint sounds of killing being transmitted from there. It was likely that the one hundred thousand strong imperial army at the bottom of the mountain had begun their attack.
Currently, killing and fighting had erupted in almost from every single spot of the Misty Cloud Mountain. This sect, which was usually quiet, was now completely covered in a terribly bloody storm.
Xiao Yan's gaze swept all around once before it was swiftly withdrawn. He slowly exhaled a breath of air and his eyes flickered as he looked at Yun Shan in front of him, who showed a savage smile on the corner of his mouth. Xiao Yan lowered his gaze slightly and glanced at the dense white ring on his finger. After a brief moment of hesitation within his heart, Xiao Yan clenched his teeth violently. It was likely that he could only use this killing weapon if he really wanted to defeat Yun Shan!
Xiao Yan made up his mind within his heart. He ceased hesitating as he moved his hand. A cluster of medicinal pills appeared in his hand before he stuffed them into his mouth and chewed with all his might.
The Dou Qi exhausted by an 'Angry Buddha Lotus Flame' formed from the combination of two kinds of 'Heavenly Flames' was not any less than using the 'Open Mountain Seal'. The Dou Qi that was required for the merger of three kinds of 'Heavenly Flame' naturally increased by multiple times. Hence, the current him needed to go all out and enable the Dou Qi within his body to be maintained at a filled condition.
Xiao Yan gorged down the medicinal pills into his stomach but did not split his attention to refine them. Being in possession of a 'Heavenly Flame' like the 'Glazed Lotus Core Flame', he need not pay too much attention to the medicinal pills that he swallowed. The 'Heavenly Flame' would automatically refine them. Finally, they would transform into the purest Dou Qi that would flow into his spacious veins.
Yun Shan's face twitched a little as he looked at how Xiao Yan wildly ate the medicinal pills. Even though he was an elite Dou Zong, the medicinal pills which he had stashed away naturally would not exceed Xiao Yan's rich collection. Hence, he could only open his eyes and watch Xiao Yan's exhausted Dou Qi slowly recovered with the help of the medicinal pills.
Of course, it was naturally impossible for Yun Shan to foolishly wait for Xiao Yan to recover his Dou Qi. Hence, the moment that Xiao Yan swallowed those medicinal pills, his body moved abruptly and immediately appeared in front of Xiao Yan in a strange manner. His hand slashed at Xiao Yan's throat. Under the cover of that deep-green Dou Qi, his fingernails were not any weaker than sharp blades.
Xiao Yan's body leaned back slightly and Yun Shan's hand was close to Xiao Yan's neck as it sliced through the air. The dense, cold wind caused Xiao Yan's skin to feel a chill.
A silver glow flickered under Xiao Yan's feet as his body leaned back. His body immediately rushed away. While he did so, he flicked his finger and the Heavy Xuan Ruler flashed and appeared. His feet violently kicked the ruler's hilt and the heavy ruler carried a ferocious strength that shot toward Yun Shan who wanted to give chase.
The heavy ruler that rushed over caused Yun Shan's body to pause. He ruthlessly smashed his fist forward and sent the heavy ruler flying.
Xiao Yan's finger shook just as Yun Shan sent the heavy ruler flying. The dense white colored ring burst apart and a cluster of fierce dense white flame swiftly surfaced in front of Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan tore apart the 'Glazed Lotus Core Flame' at the same time that he saw the dense white flame appear. The former turned into a cluster of green-colored flames and an invisible one. Soon after, Xiao Yan clapped his hands together without hesitating and the 'Green Lotus Core Flame' and the 'Fallen Heart Flame' were pressed into the cluster of dense white-colored flame.
The space around Xiao Yan began to ripple when the three kinds of 'Heavenly Flame' made contact.
Yun Shan's expression changed drastically when he saw the actions of Xiao Yan. He could sense the three different colored flames in front of Xiao Yan were deriving an extremely frightening energy!
Xiu! Xiu! Xiu! Xiu! Xiu! Xiu! Xiu! Xiu! Xiu! Xiu!
Yun Shan's body instantly disappeared at almost the same time. He must interrupt this frightening attack by Xiao Yan. Otherwise…
Yun Shan, who had transformed into a black shadow that rushed over, similarly caused Xiao Yan's expression to change slightly. The blackish-green wings on his back were flapped. Both of his hands tightly held the cluster of three different colored flames, which were swiftly mixing, as his body swiftly withdrew. On top of dodging, Xiao Yan also flicked his finger and some jade bottles suddenly shot out from the storage ring. There was a palm-sized fire lotus within each of the jade bottles…
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
The jade bottles flew out and immediately let out a chaotic explosive crackling sound, like a firecracker, at a spot that was not far from Yun Shan.
Although these small fire lotus were unable to cause much injuries to Yun Shan, they were indeed able to slow down his chasing speed. Hence, Xiao Yan had stopped his fleeing stance a short distance away when Yun Shan was breaking through the unceasing number of fire lotus explosions.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Yun Shan's gaze slowly shifted away from Xiao Yan's pale, weak face that carried some solemness before finally stopping on his hands. At this moment, Yun Shan suddenly shrank his eyes!
Xiao Yan flapped the blackish-green wings on his back in the air. His face was pale-white as his breathing became unusually weary. A foot wide three different colored fire lotus was gently floating above his palm. A frighteningly wild and violent energy slowly seeped out, causing shock to surge up on the faces of everyone present!
