After being defeated by Li Fuchen, it greatly affected Murong Di . He merely withstood 20 moves before being defeated by Xiahou Chuan .
But this had proven Xiahou Chuan’s prowess .
During the fight against Young Master Flying Sword, Luo Feiyun, Xiahou Chuan had taken the upper hand for a moment . Even when facing against the Flying Sword Secret Technique, Xiahou Chuan was able to persevere for quite some time . While in his fight against Murong Di, Xiahou Chuan had the upper hand the entire time . His palm arts was like a huge millstone and no matter how Murong Di attacked him, it would be neutralized .
‘Using stillness to deal with variations . This style wasn’t as easy as it was said, it had to be formed using your own body as part of the style . ’
Li Fuchen clearly understood Xiahou Chuan’s combat style .
When dealing with such an opponent, one’s light body technique’s effectiveness would be greatly decreased . Unless you had a speed that was fast, causing your opponent to be unable to react . Otherwise, the light body technique wouldn’t be of much use . Of course, Li Fuchen wasn’t any normal person and he had his own way of dealing with such a combat style .
“Haha, Murong Batian . Seems like your son, Murong Di has an undeserved reputation, huh?” The Doulin Clan’s Clan Head, Xiahou Shan mocked .
Murong Batian scoffed, “My son is only 23 years old this year, while your Doulin Clan’s Xiahou Chuan is already 26 years old . What is there to compete? Don’t be too happy now . If my son isn’t a match for that kid, your Doulin Clan’s Xiahou Chuan might not be a match for him as well . ”
Xiahou Shan sneered, “That is something you don’t have to worry about . That kid is just slightly stronger than your son . Once he encounters Chuan’er, it is impossible for him to win . No matter how much stronger his combat awareness is, it is insignificant when facing Chuan’er . Chuan’er’s Mountain River Battle Technique is already at the completion rank and his combat skill is very competent . ”
“There is nothing absolute in this world . Let’s wait and see . ” Murong Batian went silent .
In his heart, he wished for Li Fuchen to defeat Xiahou Chuan so that the Doulin’s Clan grandeur could be beaten down .
35 consecutive victories .
38 consecutive victories .
39 consecutive victories .
Li Fuchen was in this momentum of consecutive victories and was unstoppable . During these matches, he even defeated a top ranker who was previously ranked 14th . Li Fuchen’s formidable ability had shocked plenty of people .
Right now, the Heaven Dipper Battle Qi under Li Fuchen’s leg had already evolved into the shape of a giant python .
Compared to the shape of the giant snake, the giant python was much thicker, sturdier, and more powerful . It coiled around the stone pillar with a prominent and domineering arrogance .
When it was time for Li Fuchen’s 40th appearance on stage, everyone held their breaths .
Because Li Fuchen encountered another Young Master class figure… Young Master Doulin, Xiahou Chuan .
“They finally met . But I wonder if Xiahou Chuan is superior or will Li Fuchen surpass him?”
“Li Fuchen used more than a hundred moves to defeat Murong Di, while Xiahou Chuan used less than twenty moves . Superiority has already been decided . ”
“That might not be the case . When Murong Di burst out with his true ability, it was neutralized by Li Fuchen in a single blade . It was obvious that Li Fuchen had yet to go all-out . ”
“How do you know if Xiahou Chuan has gone all-out? Furthermore, Li Fuchen’s final blade was rather unclear and we don’t know if there are any limits . ”
Everyone gave their own opinions, but most of the people were biased towards Xiahou Chuan .
On the circular stage…
Xiahou Chuan didn’t waste any effort in talking . He scoffed and abruptly attacked .
When his palm strike was sent out, the boundless palm presence had almost enveloped half the stage . When enveloped by the palm presence, Li Fuchen felt as though he was pressed under a millstone which was spinning . Be it his qi or blood, they were all shook for a moment .
Compared to Murong Di, Xiahou Chuan’s ability was indeed much superior . Most importantly, his palm arts was too dense and when complemented by the 4-star secret technique, Mountain River Battle Technique, it was like adding wings to a tiger . It allowed Xiahou Chuan to control the whole battle as firm as a mountain .
If it was someone else in Li Fuchen’s place . More than half of their true ability would be exhausted before they could even make their move . As there was no way to contend against such qi and palm presences .
Of course, Li Fuchen was an exception .
When facing against this dense and domineering palm presence, Li Fuchen immediately executed the mystic class high-tier kill move, Blaze Dragon .
Bursting out with a scarlet light, the sword light turned into a scarlet dragon and flew out . It penetrated the palm presence and clashed with Xiahou Chuan’s palm art .
On the circular stage, there was a clash of qi forces . Half of the qi force was a scarlet light while the other half was a vigorous qi wave; they were split evenly .
The sneer on Xiahou Chuan’s face was getting even more intense . Clashing head-on had always been the way of combat that he preferred, as he could use his dense palm arts to forcefully break down his opponent .
Everyone saw that a single palm strike’s range was enough to cover half the stage .
“No wonder Murong Di was defeated!”
There was an entirely different feeling between spectating the match and fighting in the match .
When fighting against Xiahou Chuan, it was like facing a vast ocean or a towering mountain . That omnipresent qi presence and palm presence were overwhelming . Light body techniques were truly useless as a single palm strike from Xiahou Chuan was enough to cover half the stage .
‘If I had comprehended a mystic class high-tier light body technique intent, I might have been able to break out from his qi and palm presence . ’
Li Fuchen had spent quite a bit of effort on his light body technique .
But he had a limited amount of energy and it wasn’t possible for him to make himself powerful in all aspects . But he felt that after this Stars Ranking Tournament, it would be good to study more light body techniques .
With the increase in his cultivation level, he could obviously feel that his speed of comprehending martial arts was also increasing . When circulating his qi, some of the obstructions in the martial arts would naturally disappear .
Just like a brook and a large river . The brook required a favorable condition in order to flow to a further place, but once the distance was too far away, it would go dry . A river’s foundation was much deeper and had a surging flow of water which would help it extend further into the distance .
(TL note: The author meant that if one’s cultivation level is higher, then one’s foundation becomes deeper)
‘Since this is the case, I have to continue revealing my superiority in combat awareness . ’
In Li Fuchen’s eyes, Xiahou Chuan had a flaw, and that would be his overly wide range of palm presence .
The wider the range was, the higher the chances that there would be some oversight .
This oversight could actually be complemented by the boundless palm presence . When facing against a flood, who would have the mood to go look for the shallowest part of the flood? Even if they had the mood they wouldn’t have the time .
But Li Fuchen had that time .
Scanning with his awareness, the scattered palm presence from Xiahou Chuan was all in his eyes . It was like a spiderweb and there must be some nodes which were frail and weak .
The thing that Li Fuchen had to do, was to break through those nodes .
“Horn of the Blaze Devil . ”
Dear Readers . Scrapers have recently been devasting our views . At this rate, the site (creativenovels . com) might . . . let's just hope it doesn't come to that . If you are reading on a scraper site . Please don't .
When mentioning Li Fuchen’s most powerful sword moves, apart from Blaze Dragon, it would be the Horn of the Blaze Devil .
Blaze Dragon was powerful, but the Horn of the Blaze Devil was more concentrated .
As the scarlet horn was materialized, Li Fuchen thrust out .
This sword was outrageous, succinct, and violent .
But it was extremely effective . Xiahou Chuan’s palm presence was like a water jar that got punctured, as the palm presence was rapidly weakening .
Xiahou Chuan’s eyes flashed with doubt and bewilderment .
Only allowed on Creativenovels . com5
After penetrating Xiahou Chuan’s palm presence in a single blade, Li Fuchen’s body flashed and executed the Blaze Devil Killer Shadow .
In an instant, a scarlet cover had enveloped Xiahou Chuan .
Being enveloped by the scarlet cover, Xiahou Chuan felt that he was surrounded by sword dippers .
Cling, Cling, Clang, Clang!
As though he suddenly grew three heads and six arms, Xiahou Chuan burst out with splendid sparks that radiated three feet around his body .
The sword dippers that were slashing from all directions were all shattered by Xiahou Chuan’s palm arts . The remnants of the sword dippers were then deflected by the brown light which was permeating from Xiahou Chuan’s body .
The 4-star secret technique, Mountain River Battle Technique comprised of both offense and defense styles . When complemented by his palm arts, it was nearly impenetrable and watertight . Only Luo Feiyun’s Flying Sword Secret Technique was able to make Xiahou Chuan produce flaws .
