Chapter 863: Another Crisis
Half a month later, Li Fuchen finally created the 9th rank of the Primary Extreme Sword Technique.
The 9th rank of the Primary Extreme Sword Technique involved 42 human body mysteries. Once it was circulated, the body would be firmly linked with the sword dao law in the world, producing an extremely horrific strength.
“Purely in terms of cultivation technique, I am already comparable with regular saint lords.”
Putting aside other races, the strength level of human saints were easily differentiated. Those with 1st rate apex martial art and 3rd rate apex cultivation technique would be peak level saints. Those with top rate apex martial art and 2nd rate apex cultivation technique were saint lords. Those with supreme rate apex martial art and 1st rate apex cultivation technique were heaven lords.
Li Fuchen was just inferior to saint lords only in martial arts. But if he used the supreme rate artifact sword, Joint-Heaven Sword, regular saint lords might not be a match for Li Fuchen.
Of course, without the Joint-Heaven Sword, Li Fuchen would only be a formidable peak level saint.
“The Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord has been monitoring me for over a month. It is time for me to get rid of him.”
In the face of Li Fuchen’s spirit soul power, not even a saint lord could hide their whereabouts, let alone the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord.
With a flash, Li Fuchen flew out of Wind Cloud City.
“He came out just like that?” The Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord was stunned first before he scoffed.
He was going to have a hard time if Li Fuchen didn’t come out. After all, the Wind Cloud City had the array protection and under the suppression of the array, he wasn’t confident in defeating Li Fuchen.
Outside the city, the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord had a burst of speed and he quickly obstructed Li Fuchen.
“Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord, I wonder why are you obstructing me?” Li Fuchen looked at the golden-eyed man.
The Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord grinned and said, “It seems like you have already discovered me. Let me see what kind of secrets you have.”
There was a flash of golden light in the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord’s eyes as he saw two qi presences on Li Fuchen’s body. One of a scorching and massive star-like qi presence, while the other was a sword dao qi presence. Both qi presences were abnormally powerful and had reached peak level saints.
“I have underestimated him.” The Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord muttered in his heart and was still very excited.
If Li Fuchen only had shocking sword dao strength, the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord wouldn’t bother. But if Li Fuchen was also a terrifying body refinement saint, then it would be hard to deal with.
The demonic beasts might have stunning vitality, but as compared to body refinement saints, they were about the same. Most importantly, the body refinement saints had body toughness that were better than demonic beasts. Even demon overlords couldn’t compare against body refinement saints’ toughness. Only beast overlords with high-tier tyrant beast bodies, or demon overlords with noble bloodlines were able to contest with body refinement saints.
“Have you seen enough?” Li Fuchen knew that the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord’s eyes were very sharp and were able to see things that most others couldn’t see.
“I will give you a chance. Hand over the supreme rate artifact sword and I shall spare you life.”
The Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord had a change of mind. He decided not to kill Li Fuchen. Killing a peak level body refinement saint wasn’t difficult to him, but he definitely wanted Li Fuchen’s wealth.
“Then I hope that you will not spare my life.” Li Fuchen mocked.
“Courting death!” With a golden flash, the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord arrived a few miles behind Li Fuchen.
“Such a fast speed.”
A sword radiance shattered in Li Fuchen’s hand.
“He actually blocked my attack?” The Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord was bewildered.
With speed beyond the speed of light, it meant that the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord’s attack speed was already superior to saint lords and beast sovereigns. If it was far enough, saint lords and beast sovereigns could attack through air, making the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord’s speed advantage worthless. But in close combat, no matter what methods the saint lords and beast sovereigns had, it wouldn’t be as efficient as the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord.
Earlier on, the distance between the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord and Li Fuchen was already considered close. Therefore, Li Fuchen shouldn’t have been able to block.
“The Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord’s body is a Golden-Winged Great Roc. It is one of the rare few species that could surpass the speed of light in the Deep Blue Plane.
In Li Fuchen’s opinion, the Golden-Winged Great Roc’s bloodline was like a key that could open the speed restrictions in the Deep Blue Plane’s law.
It was a pity that no matter how fast the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord was, he wasn’t faster than Li Fuchen’s reaction.
Anyone who visited the Deep Blue Plane from the universe would have reactions that weakened. But it was different for Li Fuchen, his spirit soul was too powerful and the Deep Blue Plane couldn’t weaken his reaction. It also meant that the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord’s speed could reach several dozen times the speed of light, but Li Fuchen would still be able to react. Of course, even if Li Fuchen could react, he wouldn’t be in time to block as his body’s speed was still restricted by the Deep Blue Plane. Therefore, he could only block attacks that were one or two times the speed of light. Anything more than that would be barely blockable.
“Receive a sword move from me too.” Li Fuchen executed the Meteor Fall on the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord.
“Too slow, it is definitely a sword art, otherwise it wouldn’t be so slow.”
The Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord flew backwards and Li Fuchen’s sword light couldn’t even catch up to him.
“I have forgotten that my sword speed is also below the speed of light.” Li Fuchen laughed and sheathed his sword.
“Why? Giving up?” The Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord had a calm expression.
So what if Li Fuchen could receive his attack? With speed beyond the speed of light, the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord was already invincible under saint lords and beast sovereigns. No one’s attack could reach him.
“It is too soon to give up. You already knew that I have a supreme rate artifact sword. I wonder if you know that supreme rate artifact swords can produce attacks that are at the speed of light?” While speaking, Li Fuchen drew the Joint-Heaven Sword and slashed at the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord.
A sword light sliced open the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord’s body.
The sword had indescribable sharpness. In the face of this sword, it felt as though everything had lost its significance and sense of existence.
The Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord could see the sword light, but he couldn’t dodge.
“Don’t you want the supreme rate artifact sword? Come and take it then.”
Li Fuchen executed slashes after slashes and left unerasable marks on the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord’s body.
A wound from a supreme rate artifact sword wasn’t so simple. It was a source injury and such injury couldn’t be mended by vitality.
The Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord couldn’t have known that the supreme rate artifact sword was so powerful. If he knew so, he wouldn’t have made his move so easily.
Let alone supreme rate weapons, the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord had only seen a few top rate weapons.
Even though the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord still had plenty of trumps he didn’t use, he knew that even if he used them, he wouldn’t be able to defeat Li Fuchen. Everything would be in vain against the supreme rate artifact sword.
“Run.” The Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord escaped frantically after turning into a golden light.
But no matter how fast he was, he wasn’t faster than the Joint-Heaven Sword’s speed.
As his qi blood source was getting whittled down, the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord was afraid. He knew that if this carried on, he would be killed by Li Fuchen.
A giant sword light enveloped the Bequeath Cloud Great Overlord.
“The supreme rate artifact sword is indeed incredible. I, the Black Rock Beast Sovereign, shall claim it.”
There was a void distortion and a black dragon claw that was several times bigger than the sword light appeared and grabbed the sword light.
The sword light shattered and a few dragon scales dropped off from the dragon claw.
