Chen Rui was wearing dark blue armor. The dazzling light had faded, but it had dots of light like a blue gem… No, the gem was definitely not so deep and gorgeous- Stars! Only the stars had such magnificent splendor!
This full body armor was full of glorious and sacred vibe which made people involuntarily have the intent of looking up at it. Behind it was a pair of huge wings which were elegant and solemn. Isyorul’s red wings were overshadowed compared to this. It was like an ordinary-looking woman stroking her hair coquettishly in front of the peerless natural beauty.
Chen Rui felt the powerful strength surging out of his body. The realization of ‘taking oneself as a small world and integrating the real world’ was unprecedentedly clear without barriers as if every cell was active in this cyclical way. The countless small cycles throughout the body brought out a real endless power just like… the universe.
The strongest battle transformation- [Blue Pole Star Transformation]!
In addition to 1 million aura value, Chen Rui also paid 10,000 faith crystals for the [Pole Star Transformation] this time. It would take more time to collect 1 million faith crystals now.
Isyorul’s pupils shrank suddenly, and it was the first time he saw an [Armor of Faith] with this kind of temperament and power. It made this ant, who was originally only Saint’s strength, instantly soared to the point where it was almost on par with him!
People above Demon Overlord and below God were collectively referred to as Demi-God level, but those who had reached or approached this level knew that the so-called Demi-God powerhouse was actually divided into 3 levels, and there were huge differences in each level.
The first level was the kingdomized territory which was the lowest threshold to enter the Demi-God level. This level of powerhouse had completed the transition from territory to kingdom, but had no believers, so it couldn’t produce the [Armor of Faith]. Isyorul, Octopus King and Lich King of the Dead Sea belonged to the ‘kingdomized powerhouse’. The mirage had no physical entity, and there were certain problems with its own attributes, so he was relatively weaker.
The second level was to establish a complete territory kingdom with believers and strengthen believers through faith power. Not only did the powerhouse owned a [Armor of Faith], but he could also give the [Armor of Faith] to the most pious believers. Only powerhouses at this level could be called ‘Demi-God’ in the true sense. Judging from this point, Satan of the Mountain Seckred who could bestow [Armor of Faith] to Tiffany, was at least the level of Demi-God.
The third level was called ‘Pseudo-God’. The most fundamental difference from the previous 2 levels was the condensing of the rudiment of Godhood, also called Pseudo-Godhood. This was the highest level of Demi-God which could touch the edge of God. Once a Pseudo-Godhood trained into a real Godhood, and turned the territory kingdom into a Kingdom of God, then one could become a real god.
Chen Rui made Isyorul feel amazed not by the sudden increase in strength, but by [Armor of Faith]. Having [Armor of Faith] without the strength of Demi-God means that this [Armor of Faith] was [Bestow], and a believer has such a terrifying [Armor of Faith], then the existence behind…
In the distance, 2 figures stood in the air while watching Isyorul and Chen Rui battling below.
“The origin of this little human being is not simple. Pulos, your decision is very correct. Regardless of the outcome of this battle, the elf tribe will be a bystander.”
“En, it’s a pity… that little guy advanced to the kingdom level by [Armor of Faith] on the surface, but he doesn’t have the real kingdom. So, he is still impossible to fight against Isyorul. This battle will soon have a result. “
Isyorul obviously had the same idea as the 2 figures. Although he was surprised, he still didn’t put Chen Rui in his eyes. He sneered, “Ridiculous guy, you think you can fight against a true powerhouse by just wearing a fake shell? The biggest difference between the kingdom level and Saint is the kingdom power. Your bluffing power is actually vulnerable!”
Chen Rui didn’t talk nonsense. He had already arrived in front of Isyorul in an instant with a punch.
“Boom.” This punch was grasped by Isyorul’s left hand, and Isyorul immediately launched a counterattack. His right hand’s punch was also blocked by Chen Rui. The 2 attacked and defended at the same time, shaking the entire forest.
Pulos in the sky pointed, and suddenly there were layers of green thorns around the woods. These thorns looked like those in Jade Sea Forest, glowing with crystal light. The thorns surrounded the 2 men’s battle, and the tremor of the woods gradually subsided. In the eyes of the elf empress and others, Chen Rui and Isyorul seemed to be much slower, and they could barely keep up with their movements.
Isyorul and Chen Rui both flew out at the same time, then they collided with each other at an incredible speed. The 2 figures kept flashing. In just a few seconds, they had exchanged countless hits. The forest ground kept shaking. Those who watched the battle knew in their minds that if it wasn’t for the protective enchantment made by the green thorns, the aftermath of the battle between the 2 would be able to kill a peak stage Saint powerhouse.
Isyorul repulsed Chen Rui with a heavy punch, but his chest was inexplicably stuffy. This weird phenomenon had appeared several times. This was exactly the function of the new passive attribute, [Punishment], obtained by Chen Rui in the 6-star evolution.
[Punishment] could reflect all the damage suffered. At present, Chen Rui’s Blue Pole Star Level had a 30% activation probability and could reflect 30% to 50% of the damage to the opponent.
While Isyorul was stagnant due to the reflection, Chen Rui took advantage to slash [Aura Blade] in the air. Isyorul dodged, but a faint red mark appeared on the side of his face. He could not help being furious. This ant actually hurts me!
“Ant! See what the real kingdom power is!” Isyorul’s eyes flashed brightly, and the 2 pairs of wings behind him showed a fiery red brilliance. The light beams projected from the sky changed into physical pillars with all kinds of mysterious runes engraved on them. The physical light pillars burst out raging flames and arranged in a strange formation in the sky.
Chen Rui suddenly felt that the opponent’s momentum had soared dozens of times, and he felt a strong sense of crisis.
“Boom!” As a burst of berserk power burst out, Chen Rui flew backward for hundreds of meters. He felt that his arms were about to break apart, and a terrifying flame power passed through the [Pole Star Transformation] armor straight into his body as if it was about to turn his whole body into ashes. Before he could stabilize his figure, Isyorul suddenly appeared in the air. The intensive hitting sound continued. This series of chain attacks actually continued for a distance of nearly 200 meters. In the last impactful punch, Chen Rui was knocked down to the ground like a meteor. A huge pothole was left in the ground.
Isyorul did not use teleporting, but he used shifting instead which could move freely in a large range in the kingdom. Of course, the longer the distance, the more power it consumed. However, he did not pursue anymore because the attribute of [Punishment] was activated again. Half of the previous consecutive attacks were reflected back.
Although only 30% to 50% was reflected, Isyorul also felt the pain like he was attacking an enemy covered with thorns. When hitting the opponent, he would also be hurt by the thorn. He could not help but curse secretly.
This round of attacks caused Chen Rui to suffer a lot, but his eyes were brighter. The real difference between the kingdom-level powerhouse and Saint-level powerhouse was not the absolute difference in the original body’s power, but the kingdom. Isyorul was like the master of this ‘small world’. Under the rule of the kingdom, ordinary opponents couldn’t cause substantial damage to it unless the foundation of the entire kingdom was shaken. Not only that, the owner of the kingdom could also integrate with the kingdom to exert dozens or even hundreds of times the strength of the original body’s power.
From this point of view, even if a Saint powerhouse trained his strength to be infinitely close to the kingdom level (such as Zola), it was impossible to defeat a kingdom level opponent if he had no real kingdom power.
Isyorul was really fearful of the weird reflection and didn’t want to delay any longer. With a thought, a book appeared in his hand. It was the 1 he brought with him when he first appeared.
“Accept your retribution! Sinner! I can’t believe I actually need to use the Judgement Book for an ant!” Isyorul coldly looked at Chen Rui who got up from the ground, and he slowly opened a page, “God said that sinners will lose their freedom!”
Chen Rui suddenly felt his body tighten and could no longer move. This was definitely not some magical power, but a kind of mysterious kingdom rule power. It was impossible to get rid of it regardless via teleportation, [Sneak] or other means.
“Can’t move anymore? Ant! I will smash your body into thousands of pieces, then I will pull out your soul to throw it into the fire of purgatory, letting you suffer the burning pain forever!” Isyorul sneered and turned the page again, “God said that sinners will be punished by thousands swords!”
Countless translucent red blades appeared around Chen Rui. The dangerous breath emitted by these blades was 10 times more than the previous Isyorul attack. If he was hit by all of these blades, even the Pole star armor had a strong defense, it was also hard to escape from being dismembering to death.
Chen Rui did not panic, but calmed down. The Star Power in his entire body was channeling in a special trajectory. There seemed to be an image of something rotating in his black eyes. At this time, if one used the magnifying mirror, one could see that they were stars!
When the half-elf girl saw Chen Rui in crisis, she felt her heart beating violently. Her left eye began to exude destructive breath because of the emotional turmoil. In desperation, she took off her glasses and was about to activate her left eye when she suddenly felt a pain in the back of her neck. She suddenly lost consciousness. It was Empress Liv who knocked her out. Looking at the half-elf who had fainted on the ground, there was an expression of pity in the empress’ eyes. She shook her head and sighed: Not to mention that Blanche’s power is not enough to shake a kingdom-level powerhouse. Even if she can, I can’t let her interfere in this matter.
Without Blanche’s control, Duoduo immediately flew up, flapping her wings to rush into the battle, but she was blocked by the intangible force emanating from the emerald thorns, so she couldn’t get close.
“It’s time to end.” Pulos said in the distance.
Another voice suddenly revealed a hint of surprise, “No! The real battle… has just begun.”
In the kingdom of Isyorul, there were countless star phantasms slowly rotating in a mysterious pattern. Not only was it rotating, but it was also revolving. The center of the entire galaxy was Chen Rui, who was bound by the Judgement Book.
The star phantasms became clearer and clearer and gradually condensed into physical entities. When Isyorul felt the powerful breath of the rule, he could no longer remain calm and blurted, “Kingdom!”
TL: All he needs is just a sparring partner. Will Duoduo also help in this battle?
