Ancient Strengthening Technique - Chapter 1429-1430
AST 1429 –Fighting, Qing Shui's Battle, The Powerful Formation Eye Stone
Upon hearing the old man's words, Qing Shui smiled, "Naturally, I also won't hold back."
A green and sharp pitchfork appeared in the elderly man's hand. It was abundant with spiritual qi. One could tell at a glance that it was not an ordinary weapon. He swung it and charged his way towards Qing Shui.
Seal of Xuantian!
The Seal of Xuantian today was incomparable to the ones in the past. It heavily struck the elderly man who was charging his way here. The old man who got struck was stunned.
Nine Palace Step!
Qing Shui was already extremely skillful with his Nine Palace Step. As soon as his figure moved, he immediately disappeared and appeared beside the elderly man.
The elderly man also reacted very quickly. The green pitchfork in his hand stabbed at Qing Shui with great force. It was fast and merciless. Just as it was about to pierce Qing Shui, a green Jade flame shot out of it.
As soon as Qing Shui moved his legs, he strangely appeared near the old man. It was suicide to compete with Qing Shui in body motions.
Qing Shui did not want to waste his time. By quickly taking down his opponents, it could help boost his team's morale. It also caused the opponents to feel pressured. It was certain that this old man possessed formidable strength among those people. Killing him would bring forth great pressure to the opponents.
First finger! Qing Shui poked it at the old man's arm. It almost caused the old man to drop his weapon out of his hand.
The expression on the elderly man's face looked really heavy. Immediately, his feet started to look less discernible. Jade-colored flames was flaring on top of his green colored pitchfork, looking like a fearsome dragon snake.
After that first finger, Qing Shui straightforwardly swung his arm. A Primordial Flame Dragon condensed from it.
Spirit Snake Exits Cave!
Qing Shui immediately used the Snake Elephant's Movement. Combined with Qing Shui's terrifying speed, it had become a formidable, sure-kill technique. At least, they were formidable to the elderly men here.
The Phoenix Battle Intent and Heavenly Talisman had already boosted Qing Shui's strength by 20%. They were now worth almost thirty million sun.
A loud and clear noise was heard as the elderly man immediately got thrashed out. However, this was only his first whip. Qing Shui subsequently let out his Heavenly Dao pressure. Since he was also more powerful than his opponents, Qing Shui was too lazy to even use the Emperor's Qi and the Heavenly Talisman, which weakened the opponents.
When Qing Shui stopped, only ten breaths had elapsed before the opponents were already at their last. It was very tough for them to survive this.
Cheering emerged immediately from the side of Demon Lord's Palace. Dragon Palace, on the other hand, were more silent. However, the elderly man from before came out with a smile, "I really didn't realize that you were quite strong. Alright, set up your formation. I will break it."
Regarding this point, the elderly man was really honest about it. Rather, this was his confidence.
Devil Slaying Battle blood Formation!
Qing Shui immediately made Battle Pavilion set up the Devil Slaying Battle Blood Formation which they had practiced for a relatively short time.
Zhan Yu was no longer able to give out orders. Hence, Qing Shui treated Zhan Yu. Let alone both Qing Shui and the elderly man were competing against each other's formations. As for Demon Tribe and Hua Rumei, he didn't send them here. There were still the people from Cotton Hall here. The opponents had huge armies, if Qing Shui was to send out everyone here, it's likely that the opponents would do the same.
If there were not many people on his side, even if the opponents were to send out a lot of people, they would only send out the amount of people which only slightly outnumbered that of their enemy's side. Besides, the number of people was only one of the determinants in the battle.
"Alright, you guys can start your assault now." Qing Shui hinted the old man that he could now make his move.
The battle from before was already considered to have upset both side, especially the people from Dragon Palace. During this time, Qing Shui had also already probed the strength of the opponents who showed up. None of them were weaker than the Demon Lord. But compared to her, they came in short in terms of powerful weapons and the fearsome old turtle.
Merely the front already had almost ten experts. However, there were five who went on to attack Qing Shui's formation. Actually, there were also quite a lot of experts from Demon King Palace. Zhan Yu might have been injured in Battle Pavilion, but there were still two people who, though not as strong as Zhan Yu, were still powerful. They had already gained as much strength as twenty thousand sun. There were 12 branches in Demon King Palace. Counting it down, there were still those Elder Associations or even some of the well hidden warriors. All in all, the strength of Demon King Palace was still really powerful. When time had come to show up, not many of them would come. This was Demon King's Palace confidence.
Battle Pavilion was standing in a somewhat strange position mid-air. A blood-colored aura with pure strength contained within it began to scatter around the area, seeming as if it was a whole. Thread after thread of bloody strength mixed into the centre part of Qing Shui's body.
The people from Dragon Palace stopped not far away from Devil Slaying Battle Blood Formation. After that, they quickly set up their formations. In just a short while, they had already finished setting it up. Even Qing Shui was shocked about it.
Qing Shui also knew about this formation. This formation had another name. It was known as the Buddha Formation, used specifically to restrain certain bloody demonic formations. If it had been the Battle Blood Formation, it was very likely that it would have been restrained completely. It seemed that the Dragon Palace has truly aimed their sight at Demon Lord Palace for a long time.
But now, the Battle Blood Formation has been mixed with the Devil Slaying Formation. It was no longer something which the old Battle Blood Formation could compare against. It's only downfall was that they had only practiced it for a short period of time.
"Everyone, stay cool. Operate it like how you usually do." Qing Shui said gently to assure the heart of the people around him. It was so that they would not feel too pressured and nervous.
The old man yelled. A layer of light spread out like waves from the Ultimate Formation. It was mainly spreading towards the people from Demon Lord Palace.
"Don't block it!"
Qing Shui yelled. This kind of light specifically aimed at evil spirits and heretics. The more one tried to block it, the more powerful it would become. It's best to not block it. Besides, the Devil Slaying Qi of the formation was also able to block some of them.
The old man once again yelled. After that, he condensed a battle sword on top. The battle sword was really huge. When looked carefully, it looked really similar to a dragon. After that, he violently charged himself towards Qing Shui with the sword in hand.
Devil Slaying Sword!
Qing Shui condensed the strength which he gathered into a bloody red colored long sword. It was so sharp, it seemed like it could cut through the sky itself.
The Devil Slaying Sword clashed against the Huge Dragon Battle Sword. The collision gave out a heavy and depressing noise. An energy visible by the naked eye caused chaos to the air around the area. It disrupted even the five elements themselves.
After holding it on for the span of a few breathes and clashing with each other for no less than a thousand times, the energy disappeared. Even the formation has been influenced to a certain extent. It was powerful to use these kinds of attacks in the formation. Unfortunately, it could not last long. Hence, it was best to settle the battle fast while using this kind of formations to attack. Otherwise, the only outcome which awaited them would either be both sides being exhausted or both sides being severely injured.
Despite the huge amount of people Dragon Palace had, they did not manage to take even the slightest advantage. This has caused the old man to reveal a weird expression. However, Qing Shui was the only one who was aware of what was going on.
Formation Eye Stone!
The current Formation Eye Stone could raise up the strength of the formation and Nine Palace Steps by two times. This was indeed a fearsome existence, so even if Dragon Palace had twice the amount of people and strength, they could at most only end things with a draw.
The people from Battle Pavilion were really upset. They suddenly felt really powerful within the formation, their strength increased significantly, but these weren't individual strength boost. It only raised the strength of the formation by two times, not the strength of each of the individuals within the formation by two times.
This was also why Qing Shui was confident in competing with them in formations.
The Demon Lord also revealed a shocked expression. Qing Shui's abilities in formations were too strong. It was so strong to the point it has become unpredictable, so much so that it has become a bit unbelievable. Obviously, they stood at a disadvantage in terms of manpower, but merely one formation has actually managed to make them so much stronger. From what everyone had witnessed, they were already able to hold their own against the strength of so many people from Dragon Palace. If they were to truly engage in a fight, Demon Lord was aware that the Dragon Palace would definitely not be a match against them.
Second Rites, Forceful Kill!
As the elderly man waved his hand, the formation abruptly turned into two huge dragons and charged towards the Devil Slaying Battle Blood Formation.
Fourth division, Bloody Kill!
This was the sure kill technique of Devil Slaying Formation. The people all around immediately gathered together into "Four divisions. Looking at it roughly, it was the form of the Ancient divine Beast. It was only a sort of form, but it possessed formidable strength. They each paired up in two as they charged towards their opponents.
The confrontation this time has led on to a series of massacres. Qing Shui was going along with the formation. Each time he held up his hand, a golden sword would be unleashed. The Golden Sword was extremely fast and sharp. Each time Qing Shui swung it, it would take away one life, or at the very least, it would severely injure the victim. Something worth noting was that the spot where Qing Shui stood on was the eye of the formation, therefore each of his abilities would receive significant boost.
Qing Shui immediately unleashed the Emperor's Qi twice in a row at the enemies opposite him. This time, the strength of the people standing against the people from his side would have been reduced significantly. The enemies has experienced a reduction in strength whereas the people from his side, under the influence of Phoenix Battle Intent, managed to experience boost in strength. Not only that, but the effect of the Formation Eye Stone also contributed to it.
Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines!
Qing Shui noticed that the two formidable old men were about to make their moves and immediately unleashed his Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines.
Not only had the strength of the Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines been increased greatly, the time at which it could be used has now been reduced greatly.
Two enormous Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines soared up high into the sky at the same time. They surrounded a lot of people in them.
Ultimate Golden Light Slash!
Perhaps because the old man has gotten frustrated battling Qing Shui, he clenched his teeth and yelled out loudly.
On top of the formation which the elderly man was at, a large golden buddha was condensed. The golden buddha was really large. Furthermore, it had three heads and six arms. Its entire body resembled that of a Vajrapani.
Suddenly, an enormous spinning Buddha was charging its way towards Qing Shui. For a moment, the entire area fell into a complete mess. Very quickly, almost ten people got twisted by it and vanished on the spot.
Qing Shui witnessed the whole thing. He quickly summoned the Nine Continents Mountain and collided it against the Buddha. Qing Shui felt really uncomfortable as a result of losing around ten people from Battle Pavilion.
Nine Waves Great Golden Buddha Palm! Lotus Seal!
Qing Shui was aware that he could only use Mental Energy to counter, block or return energy attacks like these. The Nine Continents Mountain was an exception. Despite it being a physical attack, it could still be struck against Spirit Energy Attack. This was why it was a Supreme Treasure.
Luckily, it dissipated very quickly.
The massacre from below has become even more bloody!
"Die! Violent King Strike!"
Suddenly, an elderly man unleashed a Sure Kill Heavenly Technique at Qing Shui.
It was a tyrannical and enormous fist seal. It was emitting intense surging aura.
Qing Shui clenched his teeth and took the initiative to rise up. He was running short of time. The only way he could counter it was by quickly moving the Nine Continents Mountain in front of him to block it. A loud noise rung. Qing Shui immediately got blown outwards.
But the opponent has underestimated Qing Shui's defense. The Paragon Golden Armor has enabled Qing Shui to easily fend off attacks like this.
Qing Shui was trying his hardest!
Qing Shui immediately thrusted out a punch towards the elderly man.
The elderly man died. Even the group of people around him had not managed to escape their fate of death.
Nine Palace Step!
Qing Shui's figure swiftly whipped to the frontline.
Qing Shui quickly unleashed the technique with both of his hands. He was enraged by the ten or more casualties the Battle Pavilion had suffered. He was unleashing Phoenix Fingers at a very fast speed. Each and every one of them could cause fatal injuries.

AST 1430 –Dragon Tamers, Green Dragon, Dragon Slaying Beast Killed the Dragon
Qing Shui's sharpness has made the people from Dragon Palace drop their spectacles. This was a one-sided battle. The opponents attack didn't have any effect on him, yet when he faced off against the opponents, it was either they got killed instantly or they were defeated with just a few pokes of his fingers.
Seeing as the situation was against their favor, an old man from behind suddenly extended his hand. Dragon Palace has suffered more than half of their casualties. Even though the majority of them were the weaker warriors, there were still a lot who were False God warriors. A few of the warriors in front were even the tower of strength supporting Dragon Palace. But among these people, there were two who died before they even managed to unleash their Heavenly Sure-kill Techniques.
The old man waved his hand!
A Green Dragon suddenly appeared in the sky. It was a huge dragon about eight hundred metres long. That loud roaring noises of it caused numbness in people's heart. The appearance of this Green Dragon has caused the people from Dragon Palace to stable down. They were once again flaring with will to fight.
The people from Battle Pavilion panicked as they saw the enormous terrifying Green Dragon. That was a dragon, an extremely powerful existence. It was an existence that was unbeatable. Even the Demon Lord and Hua Rumei who were standing on one side knitted their brows.
"Do we have to make our move?" Hua Rumei was worried.
"Depends on the situation. If we make our moves now, our opponents will definitely send out everything at once. Let's only make our move when he is no longer able to hold himself against them." The Demon Lord thought about it for a while and responded.
Qing Shui probed the Wood attributed enormous Green Dragon. It should be equal in strength as the Blue Dragon from before. He never expected for there to be a Dragon Tamer in Dragon Palace. Could it be that the Dragon Palace was named after these Dragon Tamers? It left him to wonder what kind of existences there were to tame the Green Dragons, Gold Dragons as well as White Jade Dragons.
The old man slowly made his way forward. The old man who knew about formations politely bowed down at this old man and moved back to one side.
The enormous dragon was circling around the sky. While it was flying, its enormous body carried along so much pressure that it made people felt as if an enormous stone was pressing against their heart, rendering them unable to breath properly.
"Young man, join Dragon Palace. I will ensure that you earn yourself a high position and great wealth." The old man looked at Qing Shui and said arrogantly.
"High position? Great wealth? I don't care about those. I can earn them myself even if I am not a part of Dragon Palace." Qing Shui smiled and said. He didn't sound even a tiny bit nervous. This surprised the old man. The reason was that he had not met a single enemy who would still be so calm after seeing the Green Dragon.
"If beautiful women or social status are what you want, I can give it to you right away." The old man looked at Qing Shui and continued to say.
"Beautiful woman? I can chase after them myself. Social status? I can earn that myself. Why must they be given to me by other people? Do you feel that you have the qualification to give them to me?" Qing Shui laughed.
"I must admit that young man, you are really capable. But for someone like you, if we are unable to be friends, the only thing left for me to do will be to annihilate you as soon as possible. Are you doing this to force me to kill you?" The old man's eyes looked really sharp when he glared at Qing Shui.
The plain clothes the old man wore were unable to cover up for the noble aura spreading out from his body. It was obvious that he held quite a high position in Dragon Palace, or else he would never have sounded so arrogant.
"Do you think that you can kill me?" Qing Shui immediately summoned his Dragon Slaying Beast.
The Dragon Slaying Beast might not look big, its pernicious aura was enough to cause one to tremble in fear. The enormous creature in mid-air had actually begun to feel unsafe and circled around the sky upon seeing the Dragon Slaying Beast. It was constantly letting out soft roaring noises.
"Do you believe that I am capable of striking down that dirty reptile of yours within fifteen minutes?" Qing Shui smiled and looked at the old man.
"That blood species of yours is even more dirty. Stop shamelessly boasting yourself." The old man looked at the demonic beast by Qing Shui's side. Even though it had the head of a dragon, its body didn't resemble how a dragon's body should look like.
All in all, that Green Dragon of his belonged to the Dragon Race. Even if the Green Dragon was really panicked before, they still communicated. He was aware that the aura emitted by that tiny beast was really fierce, but he did not think that it would be a match against the Green Dragon.
"How about this? We will let the both of them fight with each other. Will you dare to accept this challenge of mine?" Qing Shui was trying to provoke the old man when he was saying it.
"What have I to fear? That tiny thing is no match against the teeth of the Green Dragon."
Hearing the old man's word, Qing Shui patted the Dragon Slaying Beast's head.
The Dragon Slaying Beast immediately departed for the sky. It was fast like a meteor. As it closed its distance with the Green Dragon, the Green Dragon panicked, the reason being that it noticed that there had been a reduction in its strength. Its overall strength went down by 20%.
Prior to this, Qing Shui has already used his Phoenix Battle Intent when he was patting the Dragon Slaying Beast.
The Green Dragon let out a moan. It abruptly whipped at the Dragon Slaying Beast with its enormous body.
The Dragon Slaying Beast has inherited the Ice Flame from the Blue Dragon. Not only so, the one it unleashed was one that went through mutation. It was able to neglect the opponent's strength and had a chance of freezing its target.
The Dragon Slaying Beast got whipped out, but it made it back here very quickly. The ice flame from before did not manage to freeze the Green Dragon. When the old man saw the Green Dragon easily whipping off the tiny little beast, he let out a sigh of relief.
"See that? That's what you call difference. It's totally unable to get close to the body of the Green Dragon. The Green Dragon is wood attributed. Its abilities to self-recover as well as resist unusual techniques are formidable." The old man tried to give a "kind" reminder to Qing Shui.
Qing Shui smiled. He didn't say anything and initiated a move with his consciousness.
Now, the Green Dragon has gone mad. It had no idea why its strength went down by 20% all of a sudden. The Emperor's Qi reduced 20% of the opponent's maximum strength. Now, the Green Dragon could only unleash 60% of its original strength.
To the Dragon Slaying Beast, nothing was important. No matter how strong its opponent might be, so long as it did not have speed as fast as itself, it would only suffer the fate of being killed. The Green Dragon which experienced 40% reduction in speed could do nothing but only suffer the fate of getting beaten up.
The Dragon Slaying Beast immediately penetrated a hole through the enormous dragon's body. Despite its small body size, it was like a tiny calf. With such a huge hole in its body, even the enormous Green Dragon was in panic. Blood was constantly flowing out from it.
This was just the beginning. It's way too easy to take care of a dragon if that dragon wasn't as fast as the Dragon Slaying Beast in terms of speed. Otherwise, wouldn't this only have led to the reputation of the Dragon Slaying Beast being weakened?
"You evil creature, don't you dare!"
The old man's eyes were filled with rage. His figure flashed as he charged towards the Dragon Slaying Beast.
"Old crook, you went back on your own words! Watch out for my sword!" Qing Shui said as he grinned. Actually, he had also cheated. He was considered to have assisted the Dragon Slaying Beast from his Phoenix's Battle Intent as well as Emperor's Qi from before. The Dragon Slaying Beast wouldn't have been able to take down the Green Dragon so quickly otherwise. However, the people from Dragon Palace also tried to bully them with their advantage in numbers. Qing Shui felt that there was no such thing as being righteous or not, living was what's most important. Besides, there was no need to discuss any rules with people like these who only seemingly wore the skin of the people who walked the right path yet involved themselves in human affairs.
It was likely that Qing Shui himself would have done the same if his opponents have strength just like his. Nothing in this world was absolutely fair, hence, it would have been good enough if things were made fair for each other.
As Qing Shui swung his hand, a ray of Golden Sword shot out. Meanwhile, an enormous Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines also appeared and blocked the path of the old man.
It has just been a short span of time, and the Dragon Slaying Beast has penetrated a few holes across the Green Dragon's body. The only thing heard was terrifying dragon moaning noises. Witnessing the situation, all of the people from Dragon Palace suddenly made their move.
The Demon Lord, Hua Rumei as well as Cotton Pavilion made their move all at once. Even the Old Turtle came out. Qing Shui waved his hand and summoned out a few of his demonic beasts. At the same time, he was also constantly unleashing his Emperor's Qi at his opponents.
Yet another wave of Heavenly Thunder Talisman got tossed out. The entire area turned chaotic from the loud exploding noises. The noises lasted for around one breath before it slowly disappeared.
Heaven Earth Mystic Yellow Formation!
"I'll let you guys witness how the true Sky Earth Yellow Xuan Formation is supposed to be like!" Qing Shui flung out the flag in his hand. Not only that, he even made use of the Nine Continents Mountain as well as those huge demonic beasts.
Suddenly, the sky turned grey. Qing Shui was also inspired from watching the formation from before. With the knowledge he possessed in formations and the fact that he witnessed the Heaven Earth Mystic Yellow Formation, Qing Shui was able to set it up immediately. This was the inspiration given by the old man when he tried to set up his own formation. A lot of the factors of the formation relied on the arrangements left behind by the old man's Heaven Earth Mystic Yellow Formation.
This was the first time Qing Shui setting up this formation. Putting that into consideration, he might not be able to set it up better than the old man.
A lot of grey clouds appeared across the grey sky. Qing Shui shouted loudly, "Toss out the talismans!"
The others once again each threw a Heavenly Thunder Talisman.
The actions of them throwing the talisman triggered the thunder cloud and in a moment, causing thunders and lightning to strike down like a myriad of thunderous snakes.
Qing Shui stomped on the floor with his foot.
Mighty Elephant Stomp!
As this stomp landed on the ground, numerous craters appeared across the earth. Red flames spurted out of it, causing it to seem like a hell-like smelting furnace had appeared around the surroundings.
Heavenly Thunder Give Rise to Earth Flame!
As this went on, Dragon Palace suffered even more casualties.
Xuan Qi Shell!
Qing Shui was using some unique footsteps with his legs. A gas that was visible with the naked eyes started covering the people on his side. Suddenly, all of them felt as if they had gotten heavier. Even their offensive prowess had also seemingly been increased.
"Kill! Don't leave even one of them alive!" Qing Shui gave out the order. The Formation Master had the right to do this. Let alone now, Qing Shui was already an extraordinary guy in all of the people's eyes. Despite there being more than ten injured initially, casualties were inevitable in wars. If it had been someone else leading the team, there might have been even more than that.
The green enormous dragon dropped down onto the ground. The downfall of the enormous dragon managed to lift the people from Demon Lord Palace even higher. They were even able to assault a dragon. It was a thrilling thing to be able to take part in the massacre of a dragon. It was considered a kind of experience as well as pride, a moral as well as a cohesiveness.
Qing Shui and the Demon Lord, Hua Rumei and the Dragon Turtle, as well as the Dragon Slaying Beast and Thunderous Beast specially worked together in order to instantly kill the formidable warriors. As for the Fire Bird and Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant, killing the more ordinary strong warriors were just like cutting cabbages for them.
Their combinations altogether weren't considered a formation, but a combined assault. The combination of the Violet Lightning Strike along with the Dragon Slaying Beast was like a nightmare to the expert warriors. Everytime Qing Shui made his moves, unexpected things would happen. Sometimes, he would toss talismans. Other times, he would toss his Golden Sword and Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines. Quite a few demonic beasts would even be distracted away by a mysterious purple colored bell.
The Devil Slaying Battle Blood Formation has indeed inherited the ability of Battle Blood Formation which triggered a spurt of energy within the users. Once they managed to cause the enemies to fall back, the Devil Slaying Battle Blood would definitely emerge victorious, given that there was not much of a fluctuation in the enemy’s increase of strength.
The traumatic experience which Qing Shui left his opponents with were too heavy. He also had a terrifying ability to weaken his opponents. Even if there had been more people on the enemies' side, even if they unleashed their sure-kill techniques, Qing Shui would still have his methods to make up for these undesirable situations. The Heavenly Techniques of the Demon Lord were very powerful and mystical, which made Qing Shui quite surprised.
To be able to earn the title Heavenly Technique, this was the brilliance of divine Connection. It was really magical. It enabled him to unleash powers which even he himself would never dare imagine and change the tide of the battle towards his favor. Only like this could it be considered a Heavenly Technique.
The people from Dragon Palace were constantly being reduced. Even the experts at the frontline and the Dragon Tamer had been killed. In just a moment, the entire situation of the battle had changed. The remaining people from Dragon Palace had all lost their motivation to continue the battle. This has greatly affected them and caused their strength to greatly reduce once again, leading to the increased casualties at an even faster speed than before.
