Chapter 17: The Most Powerful Technique

    Book 8 Chapter 17 The Most Powerful Technique

    Teng Qingshan had been studying meticulously recently.

    He noticed that-

    Because the shaft of the Reincarnation Spear lacked the sharpness of a blade, the power of a slash using the spear shaft wasn't great! When the same one million six hundred thousand jin of force was exerted, the power exhibited by the slash of the spear shaft and the power exhibited by the thrust of a speartip were very different. Before Teng Qingshan obtained the Ninth Technique, he had this puzzling thought, but he had never really figured it out.

    However, after he obtained the ninth of the thirty-six stone inscriptions, his confusion soon disappeared as he comprehended it.

    The speartip was powerful! The strength was all concentrated into a single point; therefore, its penetrating strength was the most powerful.

    What about the spear shaft?

    The spear shaft had its own benefit. Although it was unable to concentrate the strength into a single point, the pliability and toughness of the spear shaft allowed Teng Qingshan to release an attack that could 'strike a cow located a mountain away!' The speartip couldn't release an attack like this, but the spear shaft was perfect for it.

    After Teng Qingshan tested and pondered upon it, he finally created the fifth technique-Slashing Mountain!

    "I said that the heavens are fair! The Six Legged Bladelike Chi does have a strong physical defense. It also has two pairs of wings and six bladelike legs. However, it was just as I predicted. Its internal organs are not very durable. The energy of this attack has injured it." At this moment, Teng Qingshan felt even more confident that he could win the Six Legged Bladelike Chi.


    A loud and furious roar sounded and the Six Legged Bladelike Chi flew rapidly to the sky above Teng Qingshan. It brandished its six long legs, all of which attacked Teng Qingshan at the same time! As the six bladelike legs were brandished, the upper section of the tree that Teng Qingshan was standing on was actually slashed into pieces. Some of it was slashed into dust.

    The six long legs assaulted Teng Qingshan from all directions.

    "Smart enough. It took you a very short time to find the weak point of this technique," Teng Qingshan smiled.

    The technique Slashing Mountain did have a weak point.

    When Teng Qingshan first created the 'Toxic Dragon Drill,' each time he used it, there was a brief moment where he lost control of the spear. Of course, the 'Toxic Dragon Drill' was now perfect. However, the 'Slashing Mountain' had a process of strength accumulation. If the enemy attacked rapidly, there would be no time to accumulate force and perform this technique.

    Secondly, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi could use its six legs and attack from all directions.

    When Teng Qingshan slashed out with his Reincarnation Spear, he could only slash towards one leg, while the other five could totally injure Teng Qingshan greatly in an instant.

    This was the weak point!

    "Haha, Six Legged Bladelike Chi, you will definitely lose today." Teng Qingshan leaped down towards the ground, while the Six Legged Bladelike Chi flew downwards as it encircled and attacked Teng Qingshan rapidly.

    With a turn of his right hand and the turn of the Reincarnation Spear, Teng Qingshan changed his technique to the 'Transmutation Unity Qi.'

    Clang, clang, clang~~~

    A series of clashes sounded, causing the earth to shake and the trees to turn into dust. A great amount of dust permeated the air.

    In the midst of the diffusing dust, Teng Qingshan, who appeared to be wearing battle armor, dodged rapidly in a flash, but, at this moment, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi slashed one of its long legs downward forcefully. The earth and the mountain shook, causing the rocky ground to crack. A large amount of crushed rocks flew in all directions like concealed weapons, many of which hit Teng Qingshan.

    Yet the battle armor formed by Teng Qingshan's supreme force only vibrated slightly and resolved the force of the impacts with ease.

    "In the past, I always thought that the strength of this Six Legged Bladelike Chi was extremely high. Now, in my opinion, its strength should be equivalent to my current strength." After the brief fight, Teng Qingshan finally knew how great the strength of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi was! The explosive physical strength of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi should also be around one million six hundred thousand jin.

    If it borrowed the vibration of its two pairs of wings, as well as the force produced by a downward dive, its attack strength would increase slightly.

    "The Six Legged Bladelike Chi has wings on top of its body. If I performed the 'Slashing Mountain' from above, my move would be blocked by its wings."

    "If I attacked the hard bladelike legs, which could transmit this vibration, it would be enough to injure the Six Legged Bladelike Chi. However, because it would've been transmitted through the bladelike legs, it would only be enough to injure the Six Legged Bladelike Chi slightly."

    Teng Qingshan understood in the depth of his heart that the technique 'Slashing Mountain' could only show its true power if it landed directly on the Six Legged Bladelike Chi's body, without being blocked by its wings.


    "Screech~~~" An excited and high-pitched cry rang out. The Blue Luan floated at high altitude. Its wings vibrated slightly. Dressed in a white leather coat, Li Jun stood on the Blue Luan's back like a celestial goddess and watched the fight between Teng Qingshan and the Six Legged Bladelike Chi!


    At this moment, the sky lit up.

    Dust pervaded the air and trees collapsed in succession.

    Teng Qingshan stepped on the mountain face and dashed upward. He promptly took several steps and suddenly stomped on the mountain face forcefully.

    "Rumble~~" A big hole appeared on the mountain face, while Teng QIngshan himself leaped towards the Six Legged Bladelike Chi like an arrow being shot from a bow.

    The Six Legged Bladelike Chi roared and encircled Teng Qingshan with its six legs again.

    "Clang!" Teng Qingshan knocked one long leg away, and the sharp barbs on its long legs almost sliced past Teng Qingshan. With a step on the long leg, Teng Qingshan leaped up again and dashed towards the Six Legged Bladelike Chi's chest.

    If Teng Qingshan could get near to the Six Legged Bladelike Chi's body, he would be able to win!


    The two pairs of wings vibrated, and the Six Legged Bladelike Chi rapidly ascended to the sky. Simultaneously, its six legs either withdrew or slashed forward at lightning speed, seeming to form an inescapable net.

    After a series of clashes, Teng Qingshan was still blasted away.

    Teng Qingshan inserted his right leg into the mountain face and fixed himself on the almost vertical mountain as he watched the Six Legged Bladelike Chi floating in midair.

    "With the six legs protecting it, it is extremely hard to get near it," Teng Qingshan's head ached slightly as he thought about the issue.

    The Six Legged Bladelike Chi hovered in midair. It also realized how terrifying this human was. Throughout the fight, it had been unable to injure Teng Qingshan, while it had been lightly wounded! At that point, in terms of strength, Teng Qingshan wasn't weaker than it. In terms of techniques, Teng Qingshan was equally powerful!

    The Six Legged Bladelike Chi was also pondering on how to defeat the human before its eyes!

    Both the human and the demonic beast felt that the other party was troublesome.

    In the faraway sky, Li Jun, who stood on the back of the Blue Luan, held her breath as she watched.


    "Looks like I must use my most powerful technique." Teng Qingshan understood that any further clashes were a waste of time.

    Teng Qingshan stretched out his left hand.

    "Chichi~~" Threads of Supreme Force twirled and gathered in the center of Teng Qingshan's palm, which then coagulated into a sphere and submerged into Teng Qingshan's body.

    "I have reached the end phase of the Supreme Force; therefore, I am now able to perform this technique."

    Teng Qingshan stepped on the mountain wall and suddenly leaped over a dozen zhang higher. He then kicked backward forcefully!

    As the mountain wall cracked, Teng Qingshan darted towards the Six Legged Bladelike Chi, which was at the same altitude as him!

    "Roar~~" The Six Legged Bladelike Chi's eyes showed a faint redness. Due to the dignity it possessed as a powerful demonic beast, it didn't want to retreat. Its two pairs of wings vibrated. Borrowing the powerful force of the wings, its six enormous sickle-like long legs brandished and slashed towards Teng Qingshan, causing the air to even produce bladelike blasts of air.

    Teng Qingshan's eyes were as sharp as blades.

    The Reincarnation Spear in his hand suddenly spun, and a flowing earth yellow glow rapidly gathered on the tip of the Reincarnation Spear. Following the turning force, those flowing lights actually also started to spin and appeared to be compressing. As the flowing light revolved around the top of the speartip, it transformed into a earth yellow luminescent spot. The Internal Supreme Force had compressed into a small dot, but no one would doubt its power, regardless of its size.


    While the Supreme Force was revolving, Teng Qingshan grabbed the spear shaft with both hands. With a forceful push, the shaft of the Reincarnation Spear also started spinning.

    The terrifyingly powerful force and the coagulating luminescent spot formed through the Supreme Force gathered at one point!


    At the top of the speartip, the coagulating luminescent spot of Supreme Force and the powerful penetrating force combined and a terrifying power was produced. The air was even repelled by that terrifying power.

    The Six Legged Bladelike Chi seemed to have felt the threat as its six legs blocked simultaneously!


    The air suddenly exploded and it sounded as if heavenly thunder rumbled in one's ears.

    The most powerful technique of the Five Elemental Spear Arts of Xing Yi-Vermillion Tiger Roar!

    The terrifyingly powerful explosive force instantly blasted the six legs away. A silver-colored shooting star seemed to flash past as the tip of the Reincarnation Spear stabbed the Six Legged Bladelike Chi's chest. Without the protection of the wings, just one layer of scales couldn't defend against the tip of the Reincarnation Spear and a 'fizzle' sound was heard.

    The Reincarnation Spear had already pierced into the Six Legged Bladelike Chi's chest.

    Below the scales was a layer of flesh with a defense that was somewhere between ten to a hundred times weaker. Only half of the tip of the Reincarnation Spear was pierced through when Teng Qingshan pulled the Reincarnation Spear out.

    "Whew!" Teng Qingshan stepped on the Six Legged Bladelike Chi and, with a kick, he darted downwards.

    Green blood spurted out from the Six Legged Bladelike Chi's chest.

    Teng Qingshan descended to the ground. The muscles of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi's chest squirmed, and the bleeding soon stopped.

    "You've lost!" Teng Qingshan stood on the ground.

    The Six Legged Bladelike Chi descended to the ground. The huge eyes on its triangular head glared at Teng Qingshan. Yet, it also knew that...if it wasn't because Teng Qingshan showed mercy, it would have been dead already! If Teng Qingshan's Reincarnation Spear pierced just slightly deeper, and if Teng Qingshan transmitted and blasted the Internal Supreme Force into its chest, it would have been killed.

    "Roar~~" The Six Legged Bladelike Chi roared deeply.

    "The Vermillion Tiger Roar was just as strong as I expected." Joy filled Teng Qingshan's heart as he spoke to himself.

    Before Teng Qingshan cultivated the Internal Supreme Force, his most powerful technique was not the 'Toxic Dragon Drill,' but the Vermillion Tiger Roar. Back in the days when the two armies stood against each other below the walls of Yanjiang City, Teng Qingshan used this Vermillion Tiger Roar to kill a Hollow Dan Innate Expert and turn him into dust.

    The Vermillion Tiger Roar technique was the result of the unification of the Innate True Origin and his physical strength.

    When Teng Qingshan was on the Great Prairie, his Internal Supreme Force had only reached the middle phase. The Internal Supreme Force and the Innate True Origin could not coexist. The Vermillion Tiger Roar technique used both physical strength and the Innate True Origin to exert an explosive strength of around one million jin. However, because the Toxic Dragon Drill used physical strength and the Supreme Force, the power of the technique was even greater!

    The Internal Supreme Force was very unique. At the end phase, it coagulated into battle armor. During the beginning phase, it showed only streaks of flowing light and, during the middle phase, it only coagulated into a ringlike object.

    The Vermillion Tiger Roar technique had very high requirements!

    To perform this technique, energy must coagulate on the tip of the spear and revolve, layer over itself, and condense into a single point. Such control was even harder than coagulating the Supreme Force into battle armor! The Supreme Force in the beginning phase and the middle phase couldn't achieve that.

    However, when the Supreme Force reached the end phase, it went through a transformation and was able to coagulate into battle armor, and controlling it was easier than controlling the Innate True Origin.

    Because of that, Teng Qingshan was able to use the Vermillion Tiger Roar!

    The explosive strength of the Supreme Force was around eight hundred thousand jin. The combination of the Supreme Force and his physical strength allowed Teng Qingshan's arms to exert an explosive strength of one million six hundred thousand jin, which meant that-the technique 'Vermillion Tiger Roar' could exert an explosive strength of two million four hundred thousand jin! Such explosive strength had completely exceeded the power of the 'Toxic Dragon Drill.'

    "However, this technique uses up too much Supreme Force!" Teng Qingshan sighed inwardly.

    This technique was extremely powerful, but it also used up an astonishingly huge amount of energy.

    In Teng Qingshan's previous life, his most powerful fist art was the Tiger Cannon Fist!

    And now, the spear art with the most powerful penetrating force was the 'Vermillion Tiger Roar.'

    Of course, the technique 'Slashing Mountain' was also very powerful. When used against people or demonic beasts with strong defenses, but weak internal organs, it would defeat them with just one strike! As for the Toxic Dragon Drill, it used very little Internal Supreme Force; therefore, it could be used for a longer time. 'Pursuing Shadows' was a technique with unbroken moves, and the 'Transmutation Unity Qi' was the technique with the strongest defense.

    Each of Teng Qingshan's five spear techniques possessed advantages and disadvantages.

    "Fortunately, I have this technique, otherwise, it would be very hard to defeat this Six Legged Bladelike Chi," Teng Qingshan smiled.

    "Big Brother Teng!" Li Jun shouted. The Blue Luan dived down from high altitude and descended to the ground. Li Jun leaped off the Blue Luan's back and ran over excitedly, "Big Brother Teng, you won."

    "Little Jun, help me ask it again if it is willing to follow me," Teng Qingshan said.

    Previously, he did not succeed in subduing the Six Legged Bladelike Chi. Now, Teng Qingshan himself was stronger than it. Moreover, Li Jun was among their midst, so he was hopeful.

    "Roar~~Roar~~" Li Jun stared at the Six Legged Bladelike Chi.

    The Six Legged Bladelike Chi hesitated and stared at Teng Qingshan. It then replied with deep-sounding roars.

    Li Jun responded with a frown and immediately continued voicing the roars.

    And just like that, the two discussed for some time.

    "Big Brother Teng." Li Jun looked towards Teng Qingshan and spoke.

    "What's wrong?" Teng Qingshan also sensed that something wasn't right.

    Li Jun said, with a helpless expression, "The Six Legged Bladelike Chi is really stubborn. No matter how I persuaded, it still refused. It is extremely arrogant."

    "The blade art that its six legs used seems to have the Metal Elemental Dao. I have already created the first move of the 《Metal Elemental Fist》. It can watch regularly in the future, which would benefit it in the comprehension of Dao and in becoming an Emptiness Realm Demonic Beast," Teng Qingshan said. In the past, the Blue Luan followed Teng Qingshan because of this reason.

    "I said that."

    Li Jun shook her head and said, "I even said that Big Brother Teng made improvements at a rapid speed. In the future, you would definitely reach the Emptiness Realm, therefore, following us is beneficial. However, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi just wouldn't yield."

    "Eh?" Teng Qingshan looked towards the Six Legged Bladelike Chi.

    The Six Legged Bladelike Chi stared back at Teng Qingshan. The human and demonic beast just stared at each other.

    Through the Six Legged Bladelike Chi's eyes, Teng Qingshan seemed to be able to see a hint of humor. He grinned and said, "Little Jun, ask it again. I don't think it can be that stubborn and foolish."

    Li Jun nodded and turned to ask it again.

    "Eh?" Hearing the Six Legged Bladelike Chi's answers, Li Jun revealed an astonishing expression.

    "What did it say?" Teng Qingshan asked.

    "Big Brother Teng, it asked you about the technique that you used to defeat it. Your strength and its strength are equivalent. Why did your moves suddenly release such powerful strength?" Li Jun asked. It was obvious that being defeated by Teng Qingshan had made the Six Legged Bladelike Chi feel slightly bitter, since both parties clearly possessed equal strength.

    How did it lose?

    Teng Qingshan smiled and replied, "Tell it that I created the spear technique."

    After Li Jun conveyed the message, and after the Six Legged Bladelike Chi heard the replies, it pondered for a while.

    "Roar~~Roar~~" The Six Legged Bladelike Chi emitted deep-sounding roars.

    "It said that you are not much stronger than it. It could easily escape with just a flap of its wings. It will not submit to your command," Li Jun explained.

    Teng Qingshan's brows drew together.

    The Six Legged Bladelike Chi continued emitting deep-sounding roars and Li Jun continued translating, "It said that although it will not submit to your command...it is true that you improve at an extremely rapid rate. The first time, you lost even when you fought it with another human. The second time, you were able to defend against its attack. The third time, you defeated it."

    "Also, you pierced through its scale, but did not kill it; therefore, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi agreed to follow you for ten years as repayment for the mercy shown. If you could help it improve within ten years, it will continue to follow you. If it did not make any improvements, it will leave. If you agree to these terms, it will stay; otherwise, it will leave."

    With this, Li Jun looked towards Teng Qingshan.

    "So it wouldn't act without any incentive." Teng Qingshan grinned and answered, "Tell it that I will make it follow me forever."

    Li Jun looked over with a smile and translated Teng Qingshan's words.

    "Roar~~" The Six Legged Bladelike Chi also roared.

    "Big Brother Teng, it said that it also hoped that you can help it become an Emptiness Realm Demonic Beast," Li Jun said with a smile.

    After that, the demonic beast 'Six Legged Bladelike Chi' became the third demonic beast to stay by Teng Qingshan's side.
