Chapter 1383: Tie Ta Becomes a Saint Emperor
A divine hall stood like an ice sculpture on the arctic tundra in the north. The divine hall was snow-white throughout and seemed to have fused with the surroundings. It gave off a magnificent sense of prestige.
Protector Shui currently stood at the very top of the divine hall in her silver-white armor without moving at all. Her face was covered by a helmet, only revealing a pair of icy-cold eyes that were currently fixated in the direction of the Tian Yuan Continent.
Her gaze seemed to be able to pierce space and observe everything happening in Mercenary City despite the tremendous distance.
"Jian Chen's already achieved some accomplishments now. I never thought that he would comprehend the Way of the Sword so soon. There's no Saint Emperor now that is his opponent. Only Origin realm experts can keep him at bay.
"However, that person in the World of Forsaken Saints is even more powerful. He's comprehended the Way of the Sword as well, and his comprehension is even greater than Jian Chen. Jian Chen may be growing faster than him, but he will soon come to the Tian Yuan Continent. With his strength, which is equivalent to Godhood, Jian Chen will not be his opponent. He will be doomed.
"Her majesty still really cares about her brother, but Jian Chen is the successor of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens. The two of them will end up on opposing sides sooner or later. I have agreed with Mo Tianyun to not interfere with her majesty and Jian Chen's matters, but it's got nothing to do with me if Jian Chen ends up slain by that person from the World of Forsaken Saints…
"However, Jian Chen's growth is extremely impressive. If he does not die, he will be able to catch up to him quickly, and with his connection to her majesty, Jian Chen might be of help once we return to the Saints' World…"
Protector Shui mumbled to herself as the light in her eyes flickered uneasily.
Within the artifact space, Tie Ta and Nubis continued to cultivate like before. Jian Chen had basically stored all the heavenly resources he had obtained from the Xuanhuang Microcosm in there, so the two of them could utilize them as they wished.
Not only had Nubis ingested a large quantity of divine water of the world to change his constitution, he did not miss any heavenly resource Jian Chen had left in the artifact space. He had consumed a few, allowing his strength to constantly increase. He had even made a kettle of Comprehension Tea using the best spring water available and consumed a fifth grade Violet Cloud Peach, elevating his strength to the Great Perfection of Saint King. He had yet to fully absorb the vast energy in the immortal peach, so he was currently inching toward Saint Emperor.
Tie Ta's strength had undergone a great increase as well. He currently let out a golden light as he sat there like a giant. He channeled the essence of the world, which shone with various colors. The presence he gave off was as great as a mountain, enough to even make Saint Kings feel like they were suffocating.
Tie Ta walked a different path of cultivation that could not be measured using the standards of the Tian Yuan Continent. It was a system of its own, where he would undergo a metamorphosis each time he reached a corresponding realm and receive an inheritance from the world.
Suddenly, a heavy, dull sound rang out from Tie Ta's body. Immediately, an extremely powerful energy erupted, causing the surrounding space to violently tremble and almost collapse. The hall that Tie Ta had chosen to cultivate in turned to dust from the waves of energy.
The entire space was affected. The world there trembled gently as huge, deep cracks spread out with Tie Ta at the epicenter.
The energy that had erupted from Tie Ta did not disperse and instead spread out as a pulse, causing mountains to collapse, the ground to crack, and space to become unstable wherever it passed by. They energy was just about to reach the two halls where Nubis and the white tiger stayed.
At this moment, the artifact spirit silently appeared. With a wave of his hand, he moved the halls around before immediately channeling the power of the artifact space to stop the expansion of the energy.
In the end, the artifact spirit managed to stop the ripples after a lot of work, preventing them from traveling any further.
However, another heavy, dull sound rang from Tie Ta's body like a drum. With the sound, another storm of great energy exploded out of Tie Ta, quickly spreading out with him as the center.
This time, the artifact spirit was prepared. It immediately used the power of the artifact to stop the ripples in their tracks.
A third and fourth sound rang from Tie Ta's body close after the second. The outcome was exactly the same each time. With every sound, a powerful wave of energy would form.
Tie Ta's strength had arrived at a bottleneck and he was currently making a breakthrough into a higher realm. However, since his cultivation method was extremely extraordinary and originated from the world, the breakthrough caused a very great disturbance that was much different than an ordinary person's breakthrough.
As the powerful energy surged out of Tie Ta in a seemingly unceasing manner, the artifact spirit finally became stern as well. If this continued, the saint artifact would not be able to withstand it.
This was because Tie Ta's strength had already reached the level of Saint Emperors, which was enough to destroy the space of the artifact.
Without any hesitation, the artifact spirit swung its hands and condensed all the power within the space around Tie Ta. In the end, it formed a huge barrier of energy around him.
This was a barrier completely condensed from Radiant Saint Force. It was extremely powerful, and Tie Ta seemed to have been wrapped up in a huge cocoon from afar.
The barrier cast down by the artifact spirit began to violently tremble as it resisted powerful surge of energy. Thin cracks began to cover the barrier. It then shattered loudly when the ninth sound came from Tie Ta.
Immediately, a terrifyingly powerful presence radiated from Tie Ta, enough to cause the surroundings to tremble from his presence alone. His presence caused the entire artifact space to shake violently while the surrounding space twisted, as if it was about to collapse from the pressure. The entire artifact space faced the danger of shattering.
The artifact spirit panicked. Tie Ta's presence was far more powerful than any regular Saint Emperor. He had only just broken through, but the artifact spirit felt like he was facing a peak Saint Emperor.
Tie Ta had become a Saint Emperor, but his strength after breaking through could not be measured according to the standards of the Tian Yuan Continent. His strength was far greater than a regular Saint Emperor.
The world gave birth to warring gods, who could be traced throughout history. They were blessed by the world and were known to be the strongest in the world. Every time they broke through, they would undergo a qualitative leap in strength, leaving others in the dust.
"Stop, this space is going to collapse soon!" The artifact spirit called out in a panic. He was clearly flustered right now. Tie Ta was just too powerful. Even without sending out an attack, just his presence alone was enough to destroy the space.
This was because the presence possessed an extremely powerful battle intent, which possessed very destructive properties.
Tie Ta seemed to hear the artifact spirit's pleading calls and slowly dispersed his presence, allowing the artifact space to gradually calm down.
"Friend, I can already sense the intense battles outside. There are many Saint Emperors. The people of the foreign world should be here. Let me out. I want to fight along Jian Chen's side," Tie Ta stood up and spoke to the artifact spirit with his deep, gentle voice. His eyes burned with battle intent.
The artifact spirit was shocked. The artifact space was a closed world that resided in Jian Chen's sea of consciousness, but Tie Ta was still able to sense the battle outside, which was unbelievable.
