    Outside the Boor Ancestral Sect, Ancestral Master Zhang and company were all alarmed.

    "This Other Realm Skyfiend is really strong," commented Patriarch Bai. "He clearly is only a third Firmament fiendcelestial but he has strength that matches that of a Skyfiend. Look at his saber arts. They are extremely intricate. I will probably not be able to repress him without using the Stellar Heavenly Cycle."

    "How have we never heard of him before considering his potent strength?" said Ancestral Master Zhang with a frown.

    Skydemon Palatial Lord gritted her teeth and said anxiously, "Unfortunately, we can't help in any way."

    "We can't."

    Bodhisattva Mahākāśyapa nodded slightly. "Qin Yun needs to first destroy a portion of the array formations inside, weakening the array formation so we can storm in. At this point in time, we can really only count on him."

    "This Boor Ancestral Sect is a lot stronger than we expected. And now there's the addition of this mysterious Other Realm Fiendcelestial," said Daoist Divine Firmament. "Now, let's see what Qin Yun is capable of."

    They could do nothing to the Boor Ancestral Sect after all this time.

    It was only because Qin Yun had obtained the Major Transference Dao talisman, allowing him to enter the Boor Ancestral Sect's lair directly, and his mortality, that gave them hope in destroying the Boor Ancestral Sect.

    ...

    "Oh?" Qin Yun controlled the Misty Rain Sword to attack Skyfiend Jiuhu from every angle.

    "No wonder he dares make such bold claims. His saber arts are very honed, and they flow into one another quite perfectly," thought Qin Yun. "They appeared to have been tempered and, despite my flying sword's myriad of changes, I am only barely able to injure him? If not for my recent attainment of Stars Like Rain allowing my Sword Dao to improve, I might even be inferior to him!"

    The Other Realm Fiendcelestial in front of him was very powerful.

    He had an extremely strong body, both inside and outside! He was not like Sect Master Boor Ancestral who had an obvious weakness.

    The two battle knives were a set of inferior-grade Numinous treasures. His sword arts were mystical, greatly reducing the might of Qin Yun's flying sword, making it so it barely injured him. Furthermore, the injuries were little more than scratches on his powerful fiendbody which he could rapidly recover from.

    "If I can't kill him, I'll temporarily trap him." Qin Yun had a thought.

    "Go."

    He waved his left hand.

    Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!

    A black bangle flew out from his wrist and when it arrived near to Jiuhu, it scattered into six Cosmic Bangles that surrounded Jiuhu.

    "Cosmic World, entrap!" Qin Yun commanded.

    Immediately, the six Cosmic Bangles were triggered, forming an array formation world that only spanned half a kilometer. As for the Misty Rain Sword, it secretly retreated.

    "Oh?" Jiuhu looked at his surroundings. He had been trapped in the array formation world.

    "Begone!"

    Skyfiend Jiuhu was filled with confidence as both his combat knives formed a gigantic stream of light that cleaved at the array formation as it swept out its curved arc. "Bam! Bam! Bam!" The membrane of the array formation world distorted as countless runic patterns stirred in the world formed by the six Cosmic Bangles. But it was fully able to withstand Jiuhu's ferocious attacks.

    "How is this possible? My Twin Lunar Fiend Knives are able to cleave apart a Grotto-heaven." Jiuhu reeled in disbelief as he continued his relentless assault.

    Rumble!

    His numerous strikes were either ferocious or ruthless but he was completely trapped in the Cosmic World.

    "Hmph." Qin Yun nodded his head when he saw this. "Each of the Cosmic Bangles has a world in and of itself. The six Cosmic Bangles together are able to form a powerful array formation world! My realm was previously lacking, preventing me from drawing out the true strength of the Cosmic Bangles. But now, my realm is sufficiently high."

    Among all the inferior-grade Numinous treasures, the Cosmic Bangles had always been most suitable for Qin Yun.

    That was because his Sword Dao pursued perfection like the Heavenly Cycles. Therefore, although he constantly created new sword moves, his most powerful one was always the defensive sword move, Cyclic Sword Flash.

    The Cosmic Bangles perfectly aligned with his Sword Dao and, now that his Dao realm had been greatly enhanced, the might it delivered was also more powerful.

    When it came to trapping enemies...

    Qin Yun's Intrinsic Flying Sword was good at both the offensive and defensive. But in terms of trapping enemies or sealing, his sword wasn't of much help. However, the Cosmic Bangles were extremely good in this aspect.

    "This, this..." Inside the sect's grand hall, Aged Fiend Goat Horn said in shock, "Skyfiend Jiuhu has been trapped just like that?"

    "Qin Yun really has a lot of Numinous treasures. The divine sword that transformed into a hundred sword components was a Numinous treasure. Those bangles are considered a Numinous treasure too," said Patriarch Monkey.

    "Quick, aid me!" Jiuhu anxiously sent a voice transmission through his transmission treasure.

    "Brother Monkey, quickly use the Eight Gates Fiend Saber Array to help Skyfiend Jiuhu," said Sect Master Boor Ancestral instantly. "Now that he's trapped, we are in big trouble."

    "Alright."

    Patriarch Monkey nodded immediately.

    Hu! Hu! Hu!

    The Eight Gates Fiend Saber Array was still in pursuit of the Misty Rain Sword but it now gave up on its pursuit. Instead, it surrounded and attacked the Cosmic World.

    "Bam! Bam! Bam!" The eight gigantic fiend sabers struck the floating bangles as Skyfiend Jiuhu attacked fervently from inside. The Cosmic World distorted slightly but managed to hold strong.

    Both inside and outside, there was a strength that matched that of Skyfiends attacking, but the Cosmic World clearly was not something so easily cracked!

    Every Numinous treasure had their individual strengths when refined. Due to the cultivator and the runic patterns formed by the Numinous treasure during its refinement, it was very difficult to find a perfect match, making the strength a treasure delivered usually quite ordinary. Therefore, when immortals or fiends chanced upon a Numinous treasure that was well-suited to them, they would use it perpetually. They would even ruminate over the runic patterns within the treasure to conform to it. Over time, that conformity would become more enhanced. Similarly, the might produced by the Numinous treasure would also increase with time.

    And the Cosmic Bangle was the one that conformed to Qin Yun the most amid his numerous Numinous treasures.

    This was also the reason why an Intrinsic Dharma treasure was so powerful! An Intrinsic Dharma treasure conformed absolutely and was even a part of one's very being. As a result, it could deliver extraordinarily!

    "We still can't crack it?"

    "It's impregnable. We can't save Skyfiend Jiuhu."

    Inside the hall, the three fiendcelestials were taken aback.

    "Boom! Boom! Boom!"

    The Misty Rain Sword transformed into a meteor as it struck the hall again and again.

    The hall was being enveloped by a blurry purple light and it was on the verge of collapse.

    "Attack Qin Yun's body," said Sect Master Boor Ancestral immediately. "Brother Monkey, use the Eight Gates Fiend Saber Array to target Qin Yun's body! He'll need to use that Numinous treasure sword that can split into a hundred sword artifacts to withstand it. Then he'll be powering the six black bangles as well as a hundred sword artifacts! Two Numinous treasures... is too much of a burden for a mortal sword immortal like him. It'll be impossible for him to divert his attention to cast other attacks."

    "Yes." Aged Fiend Goat Horn nodded immediately. "The burden on a mortal sword immortal from his powering of the Numinous treasures is just too great. Just controlling one inferior-grade Numinous treasure has a burden equivalent to controlling many transcendent-grade Dharma treasures."

    The burden on one's Dharmic powers and the enervation of one's mental strength were great.

    It was exhausting maintaining both.

    For a mortal sword immortal to be able to maintain two inferior-grade Numinous treasures was only a feat of Qin Yun's pure Dharmic powers. Other Connate Golden Core cultivators were not even capable of handling the burden of one inferior-grade Numinous treasure.

    "Go!" Patriarch Monkey's wrinkled face lit up with anticipation.

    The Eight Gates Fiend Sabers manifested and dissipated unpredictably and they moved extremely quickly.

    No one could hold them back as they darted straight for Qin Yun's body.

    "It's the Eight Gates Fiend Saber Array again?" Qin Yun knitted his brows.

    Instead of a Numinous treasure, the Green Leaf Flying Sword flew out of his sleeve. With a whoosh, it transformed into the Cyclic Sword Flash to protect his surroundings. When the Eight Gates Fiend Saber Array attacked once again, it was completely stopped by the Cyclic Sword Flash, unable to proceed a further inch.

    "It's a flying sword in the shape of a leaf? The Green Leaf Flying Sword?"

    "It's the transcendent-grade Green Leaf Flying Sword."

    Sect Master Boor Ancestral and company obviously recognized it. It was a transcendent-grade flying sword in the Great Chang world. Before Qin Yun's rise, there were only two of them.

    "He can block our attacks with the mere cast of the Green Leaf Flying Sword?" Aged Fiend Goat Horn was taken aback. The burden a transcendent-grade flying sword had on Qin Yun was just too little!

    "Why didn't he use that Numinous treasure?" Sect Master Boor Ancestral felt a little flustered.

    ...

    For his part, Qin Yun remained calm and composed.

    "I wasn't very familiar with the Boor Ancestral Sect's attacks in the beginning. I did not know how powerful their means were! To be safe, I used the Heavy Water Sword to cast Cyclic Sword Flash," thought Qin Yun. "Now that I understand the means at their disposal, and the Cyclic Sword Flash has been further perfected to a brand new level, I know how to best defend against them. Back in the Effulgent Great World, my Green Leaf Flying Sword was able to withstand the combat forces of two Skyfiends. Now with my increase in realm, the Green Leaf Flying Sword... is not pressured in any way against the Eight Gates Fiend Saber Array."

    He was the most confident when it came to defense.

    "The Cosmic Bangles have trapped the Other Realm Fiendcelestial while the Green Leaf Flying Sword protects me. I'll keep the Heavy Water Sword by my side to prevent any unforeseen circumstances." Qin Yun watched from afar. "Now that the fiendcelestials in the Boor Ancestral Sect are hiding, with none of them daring to exit, I can continue destroying the array formations without worry. However, this Eight Gates Fiend Saber Array will be quite a hindrance. I'll first destroy the hall and kill that trio. That will make cracking the array faster! Once Ancestral Master Zhang and company enter, we can vanquish that Other Realm Fiendcelestial together."

    Qin Yun was now filled with confidence.

    Sect Master Boor Ancestral had been forced to hide from the beatings he suffered! The Other Realm Fiendcelestial was trapped inside the Cosmic World!

    The situation was completely under his control.

    "Boom! Boom! Boom!"

    The Misty Rain Sword continued attacking the sect's grand hall.

    The layers of purple light on the hall's exterior began to collapse before a yellow layer of light appeared. Behind the Sect Master Boor Ancestral's throne, the three yellow mounted beads were becoming dimmer at a discernible pace.

    "Sect Master, it's about to crack. It's about to fall!" Aged Fiend Goat Horn panicked. Skyfiend Jiuhu was able to match Qin Yun but the three of them would be wiped out easily! Even their strongest sect master using the Ox Fiend Heaven Trampling Array would survive only two strikes of the sixth move of the Dreamlike Sword, First Lightning Encounter. He and Patriarch Monkey would die in one strike.

    "Skyfiend Jiuhu, we can't hold on any longer! Not much longer!" Sect Master Boor Ancestral gripped his transmission treasure and urged with a panicked voice transmission.

    Inside the Cosmic World, Jiuhu had also stopped after not being able to crack open the Cosmic World through multiple consecutive strikes.

    He flipped his hand and produced a transmission treasure.

    "Skyfiend Jiuhu, isn't there the array formation? Quickly trigger it! Quick!" The voice emitted out of the transmission treasure. "We will die if you delay any further!"

    "Don't fool with us! If we are pressed into a corner, we will spill everything to Daoist Divine Firmament." The transmission treasure continued its transmission. Sect Master Boor Ancestral and company were clearly in a panic.

    Skyfiend Jiuhu's long, slender eyes were filled with rage.

    "Empyrean Lord, I'm truly useless! I wanted to stall for more time, allowing our fiendcelestial world to be greater prepared. I have no choice now. This Qin Yun's strength is indeed much greater than I expected." Jiuhu had a fierce glimmer in his eyes. "I'll trigger it then! I'll let the Great Chang world know of our prowess! Let the fiendcelestial army of our world trample flat the Great Chang world!"

    His left claw formed a hand seal.

    Buzz.

    A strange black mystical runic mark formed in midair. It began resonating with a massive, mysterious array formation that was set up deep in the Boor Ancestral Sect.
