The Divinity Seal Hall at the Snowy Summit Stage.
The 2 figures were flashing past each other quickly. Although the enchantment was strong, it couldn’t stand the overwhelming power. Several astonishing cracks had appeared on the ground.
Most of these cracks were left by Parsali’s greatsword, ‘Gale’. The heavy greatsword was as light as a branch in the hands of the Glorious Swordmaster, but his heavy momentum seemed to be extremely oppressive. It contained a mysterious truth. He deserved to be the most famous Glorious Swordmaster in the world.
Chen Rui’s swordsmanship teacher was Athena. At the time, he learned the basics of swordsmanship. Later, he learned a lot from friends and enemies during the adventure. What really formed his own style was when he battled with Obsidian at Leith Wilderness. Facing Obsidian, whose power was still above him, he activated a unique swordsmanship: [Water Sword] which was comprehended from [Star Diversion] and ‘Tai Chi’.
The Northsea Sword rippled with water-like light patterns, continuously pulling the powerful power of Gale Greatsword to dissolve it. Under this influence, although the attack and defense speed of both sides was extremely fast. The 2 swords rarely intersected with the sword front, Parsali had strong sword power, but he couldn’t unleash it. Instead, he was entangled with the shadow-like sword pattern; it was difficult to get rid of it.
After all, Parsali had been immersed in swordsmanship for many years. The greatsword began to rotate, and countless sword lights seemed to spread out from all sides like a whip. After Chen Rui resolved it with [Water Sword], Parsali, who had pulled the distance, exuded an extremely sharp qi. Both his hands held up the greatsword and chopped it off while shouting, “[Break Army]!”
This slash combined countless sword techniques to a single blow. It contained the principle of simplifying the complex. The sharp and terrifying sword qi struck Chen Rui. That special territory rule gave Chen Rui an unavoidable instinct, so he could only take it forcefully.
[Break Army] was 1 of Parsali’s 2 sword techniques with the strongest blow.
The Northsea Sword in Chen Rui’s hand suddenly disappeared, and he parried the [Break Army] with his bare hands. Soft ripples appeared in the space where the hands passed. In Parsali’s surprised gaze, his high-speed slash turned around under a strange force, launching back at him.
Parsali was taken aback. Even everyone watching the game was shocked. Especially the large number of Light Knights who came from behind were stopped by several leaders from far away. They all saw this scene clearly- This blow [Break Army] is Parsali’s famous killing move which defeated many opponents, but it is the first time that it has been easily reflected back!
Parsali’s surprise was only fleeting. Facing his own powerful killing move, his Gale Greatsword thrust into the ground, and his body was immediately enveloped by rising flames. The flames instantly turned into countless interlaced translucent light shields, blocking in front of him. It was the strongest sword defensive skill [Unassailable]!
Chen Rui once saw Paul use this trick when he was in a duel with Samuel. The power of this trick activated by Parsali was far better than Paul. It gave a feeling of absolute defense and unassailability.
However, this strongest shield had to face the strongest spear.
The strong sword qi instantly hit the overlapping transparent light shields, and the entire Snowy Summit Stage seemed to shake amidst the dazzling light. The light shield was shattered inch by inch, and the sword qi was constantly being weakened. In the end, when the last layer of the light shield was breached, the sword qi collapsed without a trace. Parsali’s figure had been pushed back for 20 meters by this terrifying impact. Each step left a deep footprint on the solid enchanted ground.
Parsali’s face was a little pale, and a trace of blood spilled from the corner of his mouth. As a top swordmaster of the human world, he hadn’t encountered such a strong opponent for a long time. The feeling of tanking’s Chen Rui killing move was absolutely uncomfortable, but this injury did not affect the Glorious Swordmaster’s fighting spirit. Instead, the fighting spirit in his eyes burned more fiercely. At the same time, a white flame burned on his body as he walked step by step toward Chen Rui.
Chen Rui just activated the [Star Diversion] technique. He could make subtle adjustments of the [Star Diversion] now. If he was lucky, he could retaliate with the opponent’s own skill like Shura, such as the perfect ‘reflect’ just now. Unfortunately, this skill could no longer be used in a short time. Although Parsali was a good opponent, he cared not about fighting, but about the progress of the Snow Dallet Tree conversion. Now the progress had reached 60%, and there were 8 minutes left. From the current point of view, the ‘1-on-1 battle’ delay strategy was successful.
At this moment, Chen Rui raised his brows. He already felt Shura’s destruction. Unless the original body died, the avatar would not really die, but it would take a lot of aura and time to repair, and it would take 10 days at the shortest to cast the avatar again. However, this time the gain was undoubtedly extremely huge. The concentration of faith power devoured at the top of the mountain was almost terrifying. It was far better than the faith power near the Raphael statue. If it was completely converted into faith crystals, then the number was likely to be a huge surprise. The only thing needed was the conversion time.
The only puzzling thing is that the shiny thing that Shura saw at the last moment. It is not only the source of faith power, but the breath it radiated is like Shura’s natural nemesis. Even if Shura’s methods are strange, there is no room for resistance at all.
This thing must be the biggest secret of the Holy Church. Unfortunately, there is no time to explore this because Pope Vantis will return soon. In the area of the Divinity Seal Hall, Vantis’ strength is SS-level. I am not his opponent.
The most urgent thing is to complete the conversion of the Snow Dallet Tree before Vantis returns.
“It seems that Parsali has encountered a rival.” Pusmeer showed a thoughtful expression and said seriously, “This ‘Richard”s combat power and experience are not under our Paladin Captain. Furthermore, his methods are very strange.”
“If this continues, I’m afraid it will be hard for Parsali to defeat him.” Eudora also said.
“Then we have to be ready to attack.”
“Yes, we can’t let this guy succeed…” The 2 seemed to be discussing the battle. In fact, under Pusmeer’s feet, a faint wave was silently bypassing the duo’s fierce fighting to arrive in front of the Snow Dallet Tree. This was Pusmeer’s earth element magic. This magic did not dare to rashly touch the Snow Dallet Tree that was surrounded with the ‘magic thunder’. Instead, it quickly built a spiritual barrier around it to block ‘Richard’’s thought in order to prevent him from triggering the ‘magic thunder.’
He tried to use Parsali to delay the time. Once he successfully sealed the transmission path of the spirit power of ‘Richard’, then the Snow Dallet Tree would not be threatened by the explosion. Thereafter, everyone could kill or capture the enemy together!
Chen Rui didn’t know Pusmeer’s attempt. Similarly, Pusmeer didn’t know that the other party actually wanted to delay time. Time passed just like that, and Pusmeer finally completed the structure of the spiritual barrier. Just as he was about to motion everyone to make a move, he suddenly felt the spiritual barrier of the Snow Dallet Tree was different. The power of light that had been so rich in the past was rapidly diminishing. In the light cocoon, the shadows of the 3 Snow Dallet Trees began to fade. They were taken aback.
“Something is wrong with the Snow Dallet Tree. Everyone, grab him!” Pusmeer yelled and flew toward the Snow Dallet Tree.
Originally, Chen Rui was fighting with Parsali. Seeing that he could complete the conversion in less than 2 minutes, Pusmeer unexpectedly discovered it. He immediately yelled, and the breath of his body rose up. The appearance of stars appeared around them. Parsali suddenly felt that his power was rapidly weakened and the pressure was doubled. Chen Rui held Parsali’s greatsword with 1 hand, and he turned his palm into a blade and stuck at Pusmeer who was rushing toward the Snow Dallet Tree.
This blow of [Aura Blade] was in full force. Although it was more than 10 meters away, the sharp qi was extremely strong like it was striking on top of him. Pusmeer hurriedly turned around in midair and held a long wand in his hand. An intangible magic barrier appeared in front of him instantly. However, the sharpness of this ‘blade’ was beyond imagination. The magic barrier was divided into 2. The short wand shined in red, and Pusmeer’s figure appeared on the ground below. He was shocked and drenched in a cold sweat. If it wasn’t the [Teleport] attribute that came with the wand just now, he might have been seriously injured by this ‘blade’.
Chen Rui’s current situation was dire. Pusmeer’s shout made Eudora and the 3 cardinals rush over at the same time. Eudora was the fastest. The phoenix egg was the key to her becoming a kingdom powerhouse, so she couldn’t afford to make any mistake. ‘Richard’ was 1 of the very few people who knew the secret of the Hall of Flame. Although she did not return to the Hall of Flame, she could guess that the phoenix egg had already fallen into his hands. She must capture the enemy alive, regain the phoenix egg or torture him to reveal its whereabouts.
Chen Rui quickly counted the time and shouted, “[Destructive Aura Blow]!”
In the blink of an eye, the bodies of Eudora, Pusmeer, Parsali, and the 3 major cardinals flashed with ever-changing light at the same time. From a distance, jumping symbols could be seen. In fact, it was countless destructive high-speed slashing sword qi.
[True Destructive Aura Blow]——Aoe skill; within a radius of 30 meters, all hostile creatures would be instantly slashed by the high-speed sword qi.
Pusmeer, who almost died under such a move, was the most alert. When he felt the danger, he tapped his wand, and a huge stone wall popped up around him. The stone wall was quickly cut and split by [Destructive Aura Blow], but the stone wall was also constantly being supplemented, so the sword qi couldn’t hurt Pusmeer inside.
Eudora’s reaction was also very fast. Her body suddenly turned into a translucent red crystal. Where the sword qi passed, sparks were splashing everywhere. The crystal was not damaged at all. Parsali’s [Unassailable] also showed strong defensive capabilities, but the 3 cardinals seemed to be in a hurry. Roger was even injured.
Eudora, Pusmeer and others were very experienced and did not panic. Although the opponent’s attack was sharp, it was not lasting. On the contrary, it was easy to exhaust, then they could capture him with a move.
The Light Knights in the distance were taken aback. They didn’t expect that the 6 powerhouses joined forces to deal with an intruder, but they couldn’t defeat him. Just as the countless jumping ‘symbols’ gradually dimmed, Chen Rui’s voice sounded again, “[Star Explosion]!”
Whether it was Eudora and others in the field, or the knights watching the battle, they had an illusion at this moment. It was as if countless stars burst together, and only the rays of destruction could be seen. The entire Snowy Summit Stage was shaking violently.
A golden light covered the Snowy Summit Stage. The dazzling explosion light suddenly extinguished, and the tremor on the ground subsided. Horrifying traces after the massive explosion could be seen. Although the leaders of the 6 major churches were haggard-looking, they were all okay.
An old man in a silver robe appeared in the field, exuding a sacred golden light. His face looked extremely unsightly as he stared at a small pool of blood on the ground.
The sharp-eyed Light Knight discovered that the 3 sacred trees had disappeared!
