Peerless Battle Spirit - Chapter 429
Chapter 429 - Chessboard Martial Spirit
“Speed-bursting Godly Fiery Orb!”
“Illusionary Light Sword Intent!”
Yang Taitian, Xiao Hong and the rest all executed their powerful Martial Arts or Mystical Weapons while proceeding straight toward the center of the lake, causing the place to be covered in various lights and rumbling forces.
The whole Bloodlust Lake was not that huge. The distance between the stone pillar and their initial location was less than a hundred meters.
In the eyes of Martial Ancestor Realm cultivators, it would only take a few breaths to travel a distance of one hundred meters.
An explosion took place all of a sudden.
Qin Nan’s figure was fired into the sky before he charged toward the stone pillar like a ferocious atavistic beast. In just the blink of an eye, he managed to overtake Yang Taitian and the others with his terrifying speed.
“Such incredible speed!”
Yang Taitian, Xiao Hong, and their companions were utterly astonished.
“I’ll keep him here!”
Xue Wuji uttered a roar as a layer of ice was formed on his body, before transforming into a g1iant mouth tearing in Qin Nan’s direction.
He had obtained great benefits during his time here in the Qinglong Mystical Ground, allowing his strength to improve greatly. Therefore, Xue Wuji was extremely confident that he would be able to suppress Qin Nan with a single ability.
Qin Nan’s hair danced wildly as he lashed out a punch encapsulated in raging Flames of Phoenixes sweeping the sky. The incoming icy attack was thoroughly melted, while the remaining force from the flames struck Xue Wuji’s figure without mercy.
Xue Wuji’s eyes were filled with utter astonishment. He had not expected Qin Nan’s strength to be this terrifying. In the midst of his panic, he immediately executed his Magical Art of Ice to build an ice shield to defend himself from the attack.
The ice shield exploded into pieces while Xue Wuji’s figure was sent flying away by the terrifying Flames of Phoenixes.
Yang Taitian, Xiao Hong, and the others were stunned.
That was Xue Wuji, the second ranked among the custodians. How could he not stand a chance against Qin Nan’s single attack?
Little did they know that Qin Nan had mastered the control of Sky Thunder and Phoenix Flame after devouring the Electric Marrow and the Fiery Heart. As a result, Xue Wuji could no longer match his strength.
“The Art of Heart-Calming and Demon-Expelling. Kill’em all!”
It was as if Qin Nan had transformed into a God of War, as he summoned a giant bell surrounded by rays of lightning, resulting in a terrifying appearance. The bell encapsulated the figures of Yang Taitian, Xiao Hong, and the others within it, before it let out a blasting chime.
BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!
Yang Taitian, Xiao Hong, and the others had not expected the attack to land this swiftly. Before they could react, their bodies were all suppressed by the giant bell and were sent flying instantly.
Meanwhile, Princess Miao Miao and Qin Nan’s team dashed straight toward the stone pillar located in the center of the lake at a great speed.
Yang Taitian let out a furious roar.
How could this be!
How did this guy suddenly become this powerful!
Just a while ago, Qin Nan could not even save himself from his hunting. Now, he was able to knock them all back with a single ability!
“We have to attack together!”
At that instant, a trail of blood could be seen beside Xue Wuji’s lips as he flew toward his companions and snapped.
The two geniuses possessed extraordinary strength. They immediately joined forces with one another and sprang toward Qin Nan from two different directions.
“I’ll deal with you later!”
Qin Nan gave them a cold stare before his figure dashed straight toward the stone pillar, leaving a trail of thunder and fire behind. The surface of the lake was cut into half due to his outstanding speed.
Yang Taitian and Xue Wuji’s expressions utterly changed.
There was no way they could stop Qin Nan who was moving forward at such a terrifying speed.
“Qin Nan, don’t think that you could get your hands on the succession!”
At that instant, a loud roar could be heard all of a sudden. It turned out to be Xiao Hong whose figure could be seen flying on the lake. Six rays of green light were emitted from his back and among the lights floated a black Chessboard Martial Spirit.
“Chessboard Martial Spirit simulates the Heavens and Earth. The living beings and the creations of the world are all its chess pieces!”
A powerful aura burst out from Xiao Hong’s body who swung his hand, causing the Chessboard Martial Spirit to greatly enlarge, dropping a shadow on the entire lake. Following this, beams of light were fired from the chessboard onto the figures of Qin Nan, Princess Miao Miao, and the others.
Qin Nan and his companions were startled.
Xiao Hong pointed at the team of five with his finger, making them unable to control their movements. Their figures were sent flying backward, and in just the blink of an eye, they were dragged toward the lakeshore.
It appeared that this Chessboard Martial Spirit was able to possess its targets and turn them into chess pieces, allowing its bearer to control them.
Yang Taitian and his team became joyful and sprang forward.
Qin Nan and his companions were left in shock.
“Stay in your place!”
Princess Miao Miao, Sima Kong, Zhou Liqing, and Yan Zihan either executed powerful attacks or unleashed their Martial Spirits, resulting in a great burst of attacks striking at their enemies in a devouring manner.
“The Icy World!”
Xue Wuji and Xue Wuheng flew into the air and held their hands together. Their Martial Spirits appeared behind them as they summoned a blizzard that poured downward. Following this, a huge ice wall was formed before them.
The incoming attacks struck the ice wall, but the wall remained unharmed despite the series of explosions that took place.
Xiao Hong moved his finger once again trying to control Qin Nan’s figure.
“Illusionary Fire-Beacon Banner!”
Princess Miao Miao waved her hand, causing a giant banner engulfed in flames to appear in her hand. She then waved the banner at the sky, resulting in countless grey fireballs lighting up the chessboard with the illusionary flames.
Xiao Hong wore an astonished look. It was a surprise to him that this Illusionary Fire-Beacon Banner was capable of attacking his Martial Spirit directly.
“The Flames of Phoenixes, crumbling the Heavens with a single punch!”
Qin Nan let out a bursting roar as flames appeared from his body while the fiery cloak swept across the sky.
It was as if he had thoroughly transformed into the God of Flames, who instantly hurled his punch aiming at the Icy World.
Xue Wuji and Xue Wuheng wore mocking grins on their face. This Icy World was summoned with them cooperating with one another. It would not crumble so easily.
“Heavenly Accumulating Strike!”
Qin Nan’s aura shuddered violently as the burning flames and cloak were gathered onto his fist by an absorption force, which turned into a tiny flame before striking the ice wall.
The grins on the faces of Xue Wuji and Xue Wuheng immediately stiffened.
The giant ice wall rapidly crumbled as if it had been hit by a giant hammer, shattering the ice into pieces, resulting in a downpour of snow.
Not a hint of joy could be seen on Qin Nan’s face, who immediately raised his head and glanced forward. With a glance, his expression instantly stiffened.
He could see that Yang Taitian and his crew had arrived at the stone pillar.
“You’re still too late in the end.”
Yang Taitian stared at Qin Nan while wearing a proud smirk. He then placed his right hand on the handprint located on the surface of the stone pillar.
