Chapter 521: Divine Power Phenomenal Success

    Chapter 521: Divine Power Phenomenal Success

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    Ancestral Master Zhang knew very well that Qin Yun had been completely repressed by the half-step Ancestral Fiend Palatial Lord Kuishi back then! He only barely survived, so it was too risky for him to come help him.

    The safest method was to get Senior Brother Sa Xu, Fairy Mu, or Demon King Ravenhorn to help! Of course, that would take time, and it was unlikely he'd be able to last that long.

    "Qin Yun, do you plan on using your life-preservation sword arts to help me?" Ancestral Master Zhang sent an urgent voice transmission. "Back then, you barely fended off Kuishi! You might not be able to fend off Xiahou this time! There is no reason for you to take this risk for me."

    Xiahou Zhen shot a glance at Qin Yun who had rushed in as he scoffed. "Junior Brother Qin, you sure are overestimating your abilities."

    With that said, he waved his hand.


    A golden rope that had been floating around him immediately flew towards Qin Yun. It instantly turned taut and straight, giving the appearance of a bolt of lightning.


    A hazy drizzle rained down onto the palace yard.

    Qin Yun's Intrinsic Flying Sword cast the Misty Rain domain as its terrifying domain descended. Furthermore, the tiny droplets of sword flashes formed a hazy barrier.


    The golden rope stabbed into the misty rain barrier and failed to penetrate it, only leaving a tiny depression.

    The Intrinsic Connate Numinous treasure's domain was even more powerful than the Heavenly Cycle Stellar Realm! The drizzle flying swords... were similarly even stronger than the Swords of Stellar Light. They could be used for both offense and defense. However, their strength was far inferior to the Intrinsic Flying Sword's protective sword flash.

    "Oh? You actually managed to block my attack? This rainwater domain is that powerful at defense?" Xiahou was dressed in black robes and he was able to block the raindrops one inch from his clothes. However, he was still alarmed. "The repression is very strong as well. What a powerful rainwater domain."

    "Xiahou, I never imagined you to be this shameless," shouted Qin Yun as he waved his hand. "Go!"

    The Intrinsic Flying Sword immediately tore through the void.

    What appeared ordinary had all its might converged.

    "As expected from two who come from the same world. Your relationship with Junior Brother Zhang sure is deep." Xiahou laughed loudly, showing he thought nothing of Qin Yun's Intrinsic Flying Sword.


    The Misty Rain Sword thrust itself at Xiahou in a flash, but he did not attempt to dodge it. However, his confident expression immediately fell.

    "Whoosh!" Layers of light suffused his black robes as the Misty Rain Sword stabbed through them, generating terrifying shockwaves from the collision.

    "Half-step Golden Immortal?" Xiahou glared at Qin Yun. "I really underestimated you. Take some of these!"

    The seven lightning divine swords which were attacking Ancestral Master Zhang immediately headed in Qin Yun's direction.

    Qin Yun thought to himself when he saw this. "It's said that Daoist Xiahou is cowardly and careful. He's best at life preservation. I never expected myself to tear through his protective robes because of his carelessness."

    According to the intelligence he had, Daoist Xiahou's best attempt at life-preservation was a double combination of a sword array and his protective robes! That made his defense extremely powerful.

    However, he was mediocre when it came to his offensive abilities.

    Of course, that was all from the intelligence that was easily gathered. The strength of immortals, Buddhas, demons and fiends would increase as they cultivated. Past intelligence could only be used as a reference in actual fighting, but it could not be treated as the complete truth! Perhaps they might have a breakthrough? Or perhaps they had an unknown move they were hiding?

    "Bam! Bam! Bam!"

    The seven lightning divine swords went forth with powerful might.

    The drizzle flying swords in front of Qin Yun formed a barrier of light but lasted only an instant under the seven lightning divine swords' attack before shattering.

    "Be careful!" Ancestral Master Zhang sent a worried voice transmission.

    "You were able to withstand that Skyfiend Kuishi. I wonder if you can fend off my Little Immortal Binding Rope." Xiahou was carefree. When the seven lightning divine swords cracked Qin Yun's protective barrier, a golden rope also flew over in a bid to bind Qin Yun.

    The Little Immortal Binding Rope was obviously good at capturing enemies.

    In the Three Realms, those with powerful life-preservation skills could not be killed, but they could be captured.

    "Puah Puah Puah..."

    Against the seven flying swords and golden rope, Qin Yun did not summon back his Intrinsic Flying Sword. Unfortunately, it would be too late by the time he did so.


    Qin Yun snorted coldly.

    Blurry stellar light surfaced on his body, forming a stellar robe! Torrential stellar forces gathered on him as his might instantly strengthened greatly while he wore the stellar light robe. Furthermore, the region around Qin Yun formed a world in and of itself. Qin Yun came to Ancestral Master Zhang's side simply by walking.

    No matter how the seven flying swords attacked him, they failed to crack the world formed around Qin Yun, much less speak of touching Qin Yun's clothes.

    "Heavenly Cycle Stellar Robes, World Descent? The phenomenal success of the divine power?" Xiahou's eyes widened instantly.

    The ancient demon Celestial Thearch had perfected the Heavenly Cycle Stellar Robes great divine power years ago. It was a famous protective great divine power in the Three Realms, something that even Golden Immortals and Buddhas couldn't penetrate.

    The Heavenly Cycle Stellar Robes that Qin Yun cast had formed a world in and unto itself. That world had manifested itself visibly. If one wanted to injure Qin Yun, they had to destroy the world first, and then attempt to crack the robe! This was no doubt a manifestation of him gaining phenomenal success in the divine power... After the ancient demons' Celestial Thearch, no expert had managed to cultivate the divine power to perfection. It was already heaven-defying to cultivate it to the phenomenal success stage.

    After attaining phenomenal success in this great divine power, its might was even stronger than the protection that Qin Yun's Intrinsic Flying Sword rendered.

    This was also why he had the confidence to use his flying sword to attack his enemy.


    Suddenly, Qin Yun waved his hand.

    The Misty Rain Sword transformed into a blooming lotus flower. It trapped Xiahou as it began to close in on itself.

    "Return!" Xiahou did not disregard the attack in any way. The seven lightning divine swords and the rope rapidly flew back. The swords formed a sword array and transformed into a terrifying bolt of lightning that smote the lotus flower. This move was used to trap enemies and prevented enemies from rushing out from within; however, it was weak to attacks from the outside.

    All sorts of moves had their various inclinations.

    For instance, protective sword flashes were used to protect one's body. They were especially powerful for fending off external attacks.

    Trapping moves were used to trap. They were able to withstand attacks from within, but were much weaker when fending off attacks from the outside.


    The lightning sword array opened up a hole in the lotus flower which had completely closed in. Immediately, a figure rushed out of the lotus flower.

    The seven divine swords swirled around him as an array pattern appeared beneath Xiahou's feet. The runic patterns of a Seven Sonorous Lightning God Robe surfaced over his body as they contrasted beautifully with the array pattern at his feet. This complete form was his strongest defensive means.

    With such means, he dared to fight Golden Immortal mighty figures as a half-step Golden Immortal.

    For instance, before Qin Yun came to the Lightning Beast Manor, he only had his Intrinsic Flying Sword. In fact, his weakness was very obvious. If he were to attack with his Intrinsic Flying Sword, there was no way for him to defend himself! If he defended, there was no way to attack his enemy. It was difficult for him to get the best of both worlds! A true half-step Golden Immortal... typically had the Dharmic powers of a ninth firmament Skyimmortal. They would have insights into powerful Dharma spells and they would be equipped with suitable supreme-grade Numinous treasures.

    These treasures would provide them with all sorts of means-defensive, offensive, escaping. They allowed them to trade blows with Golden Immortal mighty figures and, even if they were no match, they could escape. That was the reason why they were called half-step Golden Immortals.

    As for Qin Yun, he had cultivated in Lightning Beast Manor for 1200 years. His Sword Dao had improved tremendously and he had even cultivated his great divine power, the Heavenly Cycle Stellar Robes, to the phenomenal success stage! As such, he had fixed his weakness.

    "Nicely done Qin Yun. I never expected you to cultivate a great divine power like the Heavenly Cycle Stellar Robes to the phenomenal success stage." Xiahou Zhen held the rope in one had as his feet rested on array patterns. Dressed in his Seven Sonorous Lightning God Robe, the sword array around him was suspended. He looked at Qin Yun. "Even when mighty figures cultivate this divine power, they do not progress further after reaching the phenomenal success stage. Junior Brother Qin, I'm truly impressed by you."

    "But I disdain you. I was really blind up until now." Qin Yun sneered.

    "Hahaha, I did not plan on harming Junior Brother Zhang from the start. I only wanted to help put his twelve array flags under my custody." Xiahou shot a glance at Ancestral Master Zhang. "It is a tragedy, not a blessing, for a weakling to have such a powerful treasure!"

    Xiahou turned his head and flew out. "Junior Brother Qin, you are a sentimental person. You came in here even when you don't cultivate in the Lightning Dharma, but as a senior brother, let me give you a word of advice. Even if I don't snatch the twelve array flags from him, other experts will attempt do so. You might be able to protect him for now, but you will not be able to protect him forever."

    "There's no need for you to find a reason to attack your junior brother," bellowed Qin Yun angrily.

    "Haha, you can say anything you want."

    As his voice continued resounding in the palace, Xiahou had already flown out.
