In the Heaven Dipper Realm. It might not be appropriate to describe each level as a whole different world, but the difference was extremely huge.
During the Stars Ranking Tournament, Situ Lei’s ability was considered to be at the 2nd level of the Heaven Dipper Realm. The ability that Li Fuchen12Li FuchenMain Protagonist demonstrated was also the 2nd level of the Heaven Dipper Realm.
Now with his breakthrough in the True Inferno Technique and with the Inferno Sword Art at the perfection stage, Li Fuchen’s ability had already surpassed the 3rd level of the Heaven Dipper Realm. This was even before he activated the Bronze Sword Essence.
The black-robed man who was chasing after him was at the 5th level of the Heaven Dipper Realm. In appearance, his ability was definitely enough to crush Li Fuchen.
One of them was fleeing, while the other was chasing. Soon enough, they were going to travel over 100 miles2miles1 Chinese mile = 500 meters.
“Kid, you can die now. Black Fiend Violent Slash!”
The black-robed man’s body was bursting out with countless black qi flows, which turned into multiple sharp blades that slashed at Li Fuchen violently.
“Heaven Dome Burn!”
Li Fuchen turned around and brandished his sword to counter against the black-robed man’s vicious attack.
Like the rising sun in the east, the dazzling sword light illuminated the dark sky which was accompanied by endless blazing flames.
The black sharp blades and the dazzling sword light clashed. Li Fuchen’s sword light had all been neutralized and the remnants of the impact had sent Li Fuchen flying.
“He is indeed worthy to be a 5th level Heaven Dipper Realm martial artist”
Li Fuchen was wearing the class 5 demonic beast pelt armor and so he didn’t receive any damage.
“His ability is actually so strong and is almost reaching the 4th level of the Heaven Dipper Realm.” The black-robed man knitted his brows and immediately burst out with killing intent. His opponent’s innate potential was very competent and was worthy enough to be the strongest King Star for the past few centuries in the East Unicorn Continent. If he could kill such a prodigy, it would surely increase his qi fate.
“Soul Splitting Slash”
Straightening his right hand like a saber, the black-robed man’s body surged with a black qi flow. With lightning speed, his hand turned into a black sharp blade that was covered with demonic patterns.
As his right hand cleaved down, the black sharp blade looked as though it was about to split open the void, as it slashed at Li Fuchen.
This slash’s power was something even a fellow 5th level Heaven Dipper Realm martial artist would be unable to dodge. The black-robed didn’t believe that Li Fuchen would be able to escape unscathed.
‘Looks like I have to use the power of the Bronze Sword Essence.’
During this period of time, Li Fuchen had been working diligently and now, 60% of his bones were imprinted with the bronze sword pattern, leaving only 40% of the black iron sword pattern remaining.
If it wasn’t like this, Li Fuchen’s appearance ability would be even higher.
But on the contrary, it meant that Li Fuchen had a higher hidden ability.
Within his body, the bronze sword patterns were lit up and a massive amount of pure yang dipper qi was transmuted into bronze sword qi, which then flowed in his meridians and into the black light sword. The black light sword which was originally silver in color was now dyed with a layer of bronze color, turning it into a bronze sword.
At this moment, there was no need for Li Fuchen to conceal his ability, so he didn’t have to mix in any black iron sword qi.
“Extreme Heat Blaze.”
The bronze-colored black light sword was brandished, which violently launched out with a flaming bronze fiery sword light. This sword was indescribably fast as it had turned into an aurora. By the time it appeared, everything was too late.
The black-robed man’s hair stood on its end, as he had felt the qi presence of death at this moment.
The fact had proven that he didn’t feel it wrongly. When this sword was executed, it was the moment of his death.
How horrific was the Bronze Sword Essence? A complete Bronze Sword Essence was an elite 6-star secret technique and when stacked with the Pure Yang Dipper Qi, it was definitely at the level of a 7-star secret technique.
Li Fuchen might only have imprinted 60% of his bones with the bronze sword pattern, but it was almost at a 5-star secret technique’s level and when complemented with the Pure Yang Dipper Qi, it wouldn’t be inferior to a 6-star secret technique.
What was the concept of a 6-star secret technique? It was something that was several folds more formidable than the Sect Origin Swords.
When the sword was executed, the black-robed man didn’t even have time to move an inch. His qi protection was penetrated before his chest was pierced through. In the next moment, there was a burst of bronze flames, which turned his body into ashes. Even the black-robed man’s belongings had been turned into ashes, which Li Fuchen felt was a pity.
After killing the black-robed man, Li Fuchen returned to the battlefield.
There was a huge situation change on the battlefield. Lin Kun3Lin KunAzure Water Sect's Inner Sect Elder (8th level of Heaven Realm)’s abdomen had been seriously injured by the cat-masked man’s claws.
It was obvious that the consecutive deaths of the Evil Dao practitioners had made the cat-masked man very indignant.
While Qin Ming and Xu Chang were worried about the change in the situation, they were also worried about Li Fuchen’s survival. In just a short moment, they were in bad condition and had nearly been killed by the centipede-masked man, leaving them in a pathetic state.
“Someone is returning.”
In the dark, a figure flew through the sky, while everyone looked over.
“It’s Li Fuchen.” Qin Ming and Xu Chang were ecstatic and shocked at the same time.
If Li Fuchen was back and the black-robed man wasn’t, it had already explained everything clearly.
‘Perhaps he has some powerful life-saving item on him which should have been bestowed by the First Mystic Martial Expert.’ Many of the inner sect elders were thinking in their hearts.
It was impossible for Li Fuchen not to have anything given by the First Mystic Martial Expert as Li Fuchen was his personal disciple.
“If we knew that the child had such a powerful life-saving item, we wouldn’t have been so concerned.” Qin Ming laughed and said.
Xu Chang commented, “There is always a what if, as life-saving items would also need time to be activated.”
“Are the two of you treating me as a non-existent person?” The centipede-masked man executed consecutive kill moves which beat down Qin Ming and Xu Chang so much that they couldn’t fight back.
If the two of them were sent out to protect Li Fuchen, it meant that they were competent enough.
Their competency was based on their coordinated attack art and once the two of them executed it together, their ability would be able to go against a regular 7th or 8th level Heaven Dipper Realm martial artist. They might not be a match for the centipede-masked man, but they were able to withstand for a long time.
When he had arrived back at the battlefield, Li Fuchen locked onto a black-robed man and killed over swiftly.
At this moment, the black-robed man was dealing with an Azure Water Sect’s inner sect elder. The inner sect elder withdrew from the fight to go and assist others.
He wasn’t concerned if Li Fuchen was a match for this black-robed man as the man was only at the lower levels of the Heaven Dipper Realm.
In less than ten swords, Li Fuchen had killed this black-robed man who was at the 2nd level of the Heaven Dipper Realm.
As such, six of the original fifteen Heaven Dipper Realm Evil Dao practitioners had perished, leaving only nine. In terms of headcount, the Evil Dao were in at an absolute disadvantage.
“Elder Lin, let us come and assist you.”
Two Azure Water Sect’s inner sect elders who were at the 6th level of the Heaven Dipper Realm worked together to kill towards the cat-masked man.
When the three of them worked together, the cat-masked man was at a loss for a moment.
“Since all of you are seeking death, then don’t blame me.”
The cat-masked man took out a blood-colored pearl. A bundle of blood energy surged into his body before the cat-masked man yelled out, “Blood God Thrust!”
A blood streak shot out and pierced Lin Kun’s shoulder, withering the blood and flesh.
“Not good, this is blood dao energy.” Lin Kun’s expression turned pale as he quickly informed the other two elders.
Blood dao energy was extremely tyrannical, as it was energy produced from the essence of blood.
All blood-sucking techniques were basically blood dao techniques.
The cat-masked man let out an eerie smile while his body burst out with blood-colored radiance, which instantly sent Lin Kun and the two other inner sect elders flying.
Unless necessary, he wasn’t willing to use the power of the Multitude Blood Pearl, as every time he used it, it would put a burden on his body. After all, even the lowest grade of the Multitude Blood Pearl would need to be condensed by the fresh blood of 10,000 martial artists. The blood dao energy contained within was extremely heterogeneous and tyrannic. Furthermore, it was mixed with countless of chaotic consciousness.
Li Fuchen’s awareness was constantly checking the surroundings and the situation at Elder Lin Kun’s side naturally didn’t escape his eyes.
“I cannot use the Bronze Sword Essence publicly, but I can use the power of the martial pattern.”
The First Mystic Martial Expert had imprinted an earth class martial pattern on Li Fuchen’s right wrist, which Li Fuchen had never used before. It was the perfect opportunity to use it now.
As the thought flashed in his mind, Li Fuchen circulated the black iron sword qi into the martial pattern on his right wrist.
This was a sword-shaped martial pattern and the lines were straight like a dragon. A single glance was enough to let others feel its severity.
As the black iron sword qi gushed into the sword-shaped martial pattern, it suddenly emitted a severe and misty light.
A surge of intent entered his mind.
“Clear Sky Sword Art!”
Swish, Swish, Swish, Swish, Swish, Swish…
Li Fuchen involuntarily brandished the black light sword, and in the next moment, countless sword lights which were glowing with splendor, burst out.
In the air, there was an invisible field.
The field immediately enveloped two of the black-robed individuals who were at the 3rd and 4th level of Heaven Dipper Realm.
Pfff, Pfff, Pfff…
As the splendorous sword light flashed by, the two black-robed men were instantly cleaved into pieces.
“This is the power of an earth class sword art?” Li Fuchen was a little stunned.
A single sword’s power might not be comparable to his activated Bronze Sword Essence, but it was almost the same and was enough to instantly kill martial artists below the 5th level of the Heaven Dipper Realm.
But his current cultivation was only at the peak state of the 8th level of the Earth Shatter Realm.
(TL note: Earth Shattering Realm/Earth Realm = Earth Shatter Realm; Heaven Dipper Realm = Heaven Realm)
Of course, it was mainly boosted by the Black Iron Sword Essence, otherwise, the power would be one notch lower.
Not only did this sword stun Li Fuchen, but it had also stunned the others as well.
These people finally understood why Li Fuchen was able to kill the 5th level Heaven Dipper Realm black-robed man that chased after Li Fuchen earlier.
It was because the First Mystic Martial Expert had imprinted the martial pattern on Li Fuchen, and it was an earth class martial pattern.
An earth class martial pattern was equivalent to an earth class martial arts. Even if Li Fuchen was only able to bring out a portion of its prowess, it was already enough to sweep across the battlefield.
The reason why they were able to determine it was an earth class martial pattern, was because the sword that Li Fuchen executed earlier had already surpassed the level of a mystic class peak-tier sword art. Furthermore, it had the power of a field, and the Azure Water Sect didn’t have a sword art at such a level.
“This child truly is a heavenly prodigy.”
The Azure Water Sect’s inner sect elders were shocked and also envious.
If they had an earth class martial pattern imprinted on their bodies, even if they couldn’t be invincible in the Heaven Dipper Realm, they would at least possess the ability of a peak level Heaven Dipper Realm martial artist.
After killing two black-robed individuals with a single sword strike, there were only seven black-robed individuals left.
Immediately after, Li Fuchen killed two more black-robed men, leaving only five.
“All of you go and assist Elder Lin Kun.” Li Fuchen proposed.
Apart from the cat-masked and centipede-masked men, there was nothing to fear about the three other black-robed individuals. Believing that Li Fuchen should be able to deal with them, all the inner sect elders apart from the Giant Sickle Terror Bird5Giant Sickle Terror BirdFlying spirit beast that Ouyang Wentian gave to Li Fuchen all rushed towards the cat-masked man.
The cat-masked man had an extremely awful expression. Before he came to Cloud Mist City, he didn’t imagine that his plan would be wrecked by a junior at the 8th level of the Earth Shatter Realm instead of a Heaven Dipper Realm martial artist. It was truly ironic.
“Since all of you wish to die, then go ahead and die!”
The cat-masked man was fearless, as he burst out the blood dao energy without any reserve, fighting against multiple enemies by himself.
“He is truly powerful.” Li Fuchen withdrew his eyes and looked at the three black-robed individuals.
The three black-robed men were gathered together and mutually transmitting messages to one another. It was obvious that they were planning to eliminate Li Fuchen and assist the cat-masked man afterwards.
