Ancient Strengthening Technique - Chapter 1711
AST 1711 - Difference, Unable to Withstand A Strike
Qing Shui looked at Huang Wu's weapon and the more he looked at it, the more he found it strange . This was a weapon that looked both like a long fan and a flag .
It was in a shiny brilliant gold, exuding pure spiritual Qi waves . Through Huang Wu's identity, Qing Shui knew that the weapon he possessed was definitely a good one . However, no matter how good it was, it was still slightly worse when compared to his own Golden Battle Halberd .
’’You better watch out!’’
Huang Wu reminded Qing Shui before charging out toward him . His speed wasn't fast but the places he had passed by had something like sand rising up .
Yellow Sand Ten Thousand Miles!
It was a pity that Huang Wu seemed to not have sufficient mastery of this skill . It was said that when the Yellow Sand Ten Thousand Miles was cultivated to the peak, it could instantly turn an area within 10,000 li or even further into a desert, wiping out all living creatures in the process .
This technique was truly vicious, but the real Yellow Sand Ten Thousand Miles had only been used in the ancient times before . No one had seen it in recent years . Even with that said, when dealing with experts, the prowess of this attack wasn't very strong . This was a powerful Sure Kill Technique in large-scale battles such as those between dynasties or sects .
These were not the only effects that the Yellow Sand Ten Thousand Miles had . The area within the sand was also his territory and within this domain, his abilities would get stronger . It was also more beneficial for him when performing some of his battle techniques as the domain would also increase some of his abilities .
Although Huang Wu was only considered to have achieved a small success stage in this, the effect was still very great . In this ocean domain, the surroundings seemed to have been turned into a small-scale desert .
Of course, Qing Shui was aware that this wasn't a real desert . It was only formed by a type of Origin Qi and was only temporary . However, the stronger one was, the longer the effects could be sustained .
Sand filled up the entire place and Qing Shui could sense that Huang Wu was getting stronger while his own body was being restricted . However, very soon, Qing Shui realized that the Nine Yang Force within his body was exuding a powerful and domineering force that had instantly cleared off the feeling from before .
Qing Shui couldn't help but smile . The Nine Yang Dragon Soul was truly amazing . Furthermore, Qing Shui felt that it was related to his Nine Yang Golden Body . The Nine Yang Dragon Soul seemed to have already been merged into his physique .
A surge of domineering force in his Dantian flowed through his meridian channels right into his eight extra vessels, his twelve channels, as well as his heavenly meridians and earthly meridians . In that instant, it was as if all of them had merged into one .
Not only had the Nine Yang Dragon Soul merged all of this together, it even merged into his physique . Qing Shui didn't have the chance to appreciate it when something even more unbelievable happened to him .
The Nine Yang Dragon Soul went gushing out toward the paragon vessel .
Although the Nine Yang Dragon Soul wasn't an actual soul, it was a mental intent that was formed from a combination of Qing Shui's thought and his techniques . It was like a primordial spirit existence .
There was a slight collision and the Nine Yang Dragon Soul which had just clashed into the paragon vessel was thrown off . It seemed that the paragon vessel didn't welcome the Nine Yang Dragon Soul .
Qing Shui smiled bitterly . This Nine Yang Dragon Soul was really aggressive . It wasn't satisfied satisfied with just merging into his body and consciousness . It wanted to spread its influence even more by taking over the paragon vessel .
Qing Shui didn't know if this was a good sign or a bad sign, but he knew that the paragon vessel was no pushover . Moreover, the Nine Yang Dragon Soul was something that Qing Shui had control over . It was just that there may be times when he might not be able to contain this overwhelming force .
In actuality, there was no need for Qing Shui to be worried . All three intents in his body were all him . The paragon vessel's intent was him, and the Nine Yang Dragon Soul was even more so . Although all of them were him, they were usually independent . Qing Shui had the choice to control them as he wished .
Qing Shui was actually thinking that it wouldn't be bad to let the Nine Yang Dragon Soul control the paragon vessel . It was also why he hadn't tried to stop it earlier . He even wanted to see what the outcome would be like for the Nine Yang Dragon Soul to be merged together with the paragon vessel .
However, it seemed like it wasn't that simple .
Huang Wu swung the ’’long fan’’ he was holding and something that was akin to a huge sand pillar, that seemed to be both material and also a little shaky, spun violently and went charging toward Qing Shui like a sand dragon .
The wind was blowing and the sand was bellowing . It was like a devil that was made of sand, opening its terrifying large mouth and seeming as if it wanted to engulf Qing Shui entirely . This kind of sand had an extremely high temperature and a powerful engulfing force .
The legacies of the Wavemoon Cavern's Huang Clan was such sand that could engulf, had poison that could seep through, was sturdy, and scorching . . .
Qing Shui didn't have didn't have a good idea of how to deal with this sand dragon . It was like in a situation where someone threw a bucket of feces in your direction . You would be at a loss of whether you should block or not .
Thankfully, Qing Shui had the Nine Continents Mountain . The Nine Continents Mountain, which was 100 meters in size, was the best at dealing with such things . It wasn't that effective in dealing with soul-based attacks but was still very useful when dealing with physical attacks like these .
It wasn't that Qing Shui couldn't use his Origin Qi to create a barrier . He just simply wanted to try the sand dragon's prowess with the Nine Continents Mountain .
The Nine Continents Mountain's prowess had increased a lot more from what it was before . The several folds increment kept it from being on the losing end when dealing with this sand dragon .
Zi zi . . .
A huge sound that sounded as if it came from a tremendous drill rang out when the sand dragon and the Nine Continents Mountain clashed together . It was piercing and intolerable . The sound seemed as if it wanted to tear a person apart and the surroundings had already become a vacuum state .
The land under everyone's feet that was within sight was now covered in thick layers of sand .
Qing Shui stomped down fiercely!
Mighty Elephant Stomp!
A force that was like a dragon extended out rapidly, encompassing the surroundings .
Sand flew around in the sky and the surroundings became a shaky vacuum realm . Qing Shui stared at Huang Wu who was opposite him and saw that the opponent hadn't been struck by the effects of the Mighty Elephant Stomp .
Nine Palace Steps!
With a flash, Qing Shui appeared near Huang Wu . Huang Wu didn't hesitate and struck out his long fan like a sword toward Qing Shui . The action was strange but profound .
Qing Shui's eyes lit up and he swung his Golden Battle Halberd with great force .
Right now, Qing Shui didn't wish to use the Emperor's Qi and Art of Pursuing on every single opponent he faced . It would cause him to be overly reliant on them . Therefore, if he could handle the situation by himself, he wouldn't use the Emperor's Qi to assist him .
The opponent's movements were profound and agile but Qing Shui's attacks were in no way inferior . Furthermore, it was fiercely and stronger . Before great power, everything else was useless . Moreover, Qing Shui didn't merely just have power . He was clearly more than a notch higher than Huang Wu .
Qing Shui's strength had increased multiple folds within a short period of time and if would be astonishing if he wasn't already stronger than Huang Wu . If that was the case, then Huang Wu wasn't an existence that could be described with only the word 'genius'.
There was a head-on contact, and a skillful collision . Qing Shui didn't budge, but Huang Wu retreated rapidly . He had only taken two steps back before he was sent flying out, his chest undulating very strongly .
Qing Shui had not used his full power . He didn't wish to kill Huang Wu . He didn't wish to fall out with the Watermoon Cavern right now . Thus, he chose to hold back . The Huang Wu's abilities should be about the same if not weaker compared to before Qing Shui's Nine Yang Dragon Soul had reached the small success stage .
The difference between them was naturally, very huge . However, at Huang Wu's current age, he was definitely at the top amongst those of his age . There were very few who were like him even in influences at the level of the Wavemoon Cavern and Watermoon Cavern . Even an influence of that level wouldn't be able to produce many of Huang Wu's level .
