Its overwhelming strength was intimidating. Wherever saber aura passed by, there would be a violent fluctuation in the space, boiling the space instantly. It was apparent how quick it was. The saber aura was still in the hands of the first Divine Lord, but it was already in front of Ye Xiwen on the next second.
Even Ye Xiwen felt that the fierce saber aura that was approaching almost lay a cut on his face. Fortunately, Ye Xiwen’s speed was not slow. He avoided the saber aura directly as the Demon Wings flapped in reflex.
“Boom!” The saber aura split the vast sky and rushed into the chaos pool. It set off an endless storm in all directions.
Chills crept upon Ye Xiwen’s back. The saber aura was too abnormal. If he was careless, he would have been cut into half by it.
The first Divine Lord had his strength escalated by one level after the bloodline awakening. He was no way inferior to the realm of Great Sage Minor Mastery.
Although this strength was inferior to the Enchant Temple Master, the pressure on Ye Xiwen did increase drastically. When he faced Soul Destruction Temple Temple Master last time, he had no way to fight back.
They were figures in Great Sage Great Mastery, which could almost enter the realm of the Great Sage Great Perfection. Such a character was not what Ye Xiwen could deal with now.
Even if it was only the first Divine Lord who just temporarily ascended to Great Sage Minor Mastery, it felt like a whole level difference for Ye Xiwen.
“Don’t think about fleeing today. It will be a massacre. Even all the ten countries in the Southeast Region will be slaughtered!” The first Divine Lord’s eyes reflected its fanatic nature. He hated Ye Xiwen the most. Hence, he was determined to eliminate everything related to Ye Xiwen.
The long saber in his hand made a beautiful trajectory, and countless gray saber aura occupied the sky. It was densely packed, enough to cut off Ye Xiwen’s path to retreat. The situation became more and more alarming.
After bloodline awakening, his strength suddenly improved a grade. With Yin and Yang Rainbow in his hands, the first Divine Lord exerted unprecedented power, far exceeding Ye Xiwen’s previous anticipation.
The saber aura in the sky bombarded Ye Xiwen, exploding in great intensity in an instant. When all the saber aura exploded, the entire sky completely collapsed. The scene was terrifying even looking from a distance.
The aftermath dispersed. Ye Xiwen who was in the center was in a troubled state, despite having the protection of Gilded Tyrant Body and Tianyuan Mirror. The saber aura just now had inflicted a huge wound directly on his body with the blood splashed around him. White bones were visible too. If it was an average person, he would have been slashed into half already.
Great Sage Minor Mastery was so powerful.
Ye Xiwen could not help but gasp in astonishment. While using the Phoenix Regeneration technique to rejuvenate the wounds on his body, he had to expel the saber aura lingering around the wound as well.
“Ye Xiwen, you can’t go on like this. Even if you have the Gilded Tyrant Body and the protection of Tianyuan Mirror, you will be soon killed by him!” Ye Mo reminded.
Ye Xiwen nodded but didn’t expect that this first Divine Lord would become so powerful after bloodline awakening. It was imaginable how difficult it was for human ancestors to compete with these Native Clans for living space.
Great Sage Minor Mastery; it had exceeded the limit that Ye Xiwen could handle.
“Let’s fight. I can try to break through to the Great Sage Intermediate on the spot. With that, I should have a chance to still fight with him!” Ye Xiwen said and licked off the bloodstain at the corner of his face. If Ye Xiwen was just a Great Sage Initial, he had no way to contend with the first Divine Lord who went through bloodline awakening. For today’s event, there was only one way. I have to break through into Great Sage intermediate.
Although Ye Xiwen had just entered the Great Sage not long ago, he had already entered the peak of the Great Sage Initial. During the retribution, he confronted Heaven’s Retribution and absorbed all the power of Heaven’s Retribution into his body. Hence, despite having just recently attained the Great Sage realm, Ye Xiwen’s strength had reached the Great Sage Realm Initial Peak. Otherwise, he had no way to contend with the first Divine Lord and suppressed the first Divine Lord at a disadvantage. Ye Xiwen originally planned to find a place to finish the breakthrough after settling down Yi Yuan Sect.
In this increasingly chaotic time, there was not enough time for Ye Xiwen to have a breakthrough in his realm. Hence, he really had to muster all he could to let himself have a breakthrough.
Behind Ye Xiwen appeared jade-like rays, forming the shape of a tree. Ye Xiwen instantly entered the state of sudden enlightenment. In just a daze, Ye Xiwen progressed in his enlightenment as though he managed to establish with the Dao.
This was because the Mingxin ancient tree was activated. During this time, it had directly rooted in the Dragon Vein and absorbed enough nutrients. The Mingxin ancient tree grew faster and faster. Relatively speaking, Ye Xiwen’s grasp on Dao would improve over time. This was the fundamental reason why Ye Xiwen could continue the breakthrough spree.
All the wounds on his body were recovering at an exaggerated speed, and the qi in his body was strengthened as time passed.
“Hmph, let me see how many times your healing technique can save you!” The first Divine Lord also saw the abnormality on Ye Xiwen, but he did not treat it seriously. He just considered it as Ye Xiwen’s last struggle before his imminent demise. Even if you have a supreme secret healing technique, it is nothing in front of absolute strength.
Initially, he was worried that Ye Xiwen would attempt escape, but now he was not worried at all. As long as Yi Yuan Sect was still there, it was impossible for Ye Xiwen to escape. When Yi Yuan Sect was crushed, then the first Divine Lord had no way to chase up if Ye Xiwen decided to escape.
Now as long as Yi Yuan Sect still exists, Ye Xiwen would be trapped here obediently.
Although the first Divine Lord seemed like a maniac, he hadn’t gone crazy.
After he finished his sentence, he had already appeared in front of Ye Xiwen; he slashed the long saber in his hand directly at Ye Xiwen.
The battle between the two sides became more and more intense in the sky. Although Ye Xiwen fought very bravely and was not hurt, he was completely suppressed. His strength was worse than that of the first Divine Lord. Ye Xiwen was struggling in an uphill battle.
Fortunately, the first Divine Lord was also frightened by Ye Xiwen’s madness. Ye Xiwen fought as if he didn’t care about death or injury at all. Ye Xiwen just fought violently; he would injure the opponent in exchange for sustaining injuries on himself. This situation made the first Divine Lord hesitate and be more restrained in the fights. Otherwise, the first Divine Lord would be injured fatally even if he were to kill Ye Xiwen. His physical body was not as strong as Ye Xiwen. After bloodline awakening, he only improved his cultivation.
At this time, Ye Xiwen was in the state of enlightenment. Although he was still fighting with the first Divine Lord, he devoted most of his spiritual senses in the enlightenment. With the help of the Mingxin ancient tree, Ye Xiwen easily attained the existence of Dao. He was indulging in the free flow of Dao.
He even forgot that he was still fighting the first Divine Lord, and even forgot all kinds of dangers.
The power of Ye Xiwen was also advancing at a slow but consistent speed towards the Great Sage Intermediate. This was entirely due to the Mingxin ancient tree.
However, the first Divine Lord was not a fool, and soon discovered Ye Xiwen’s anomaly. He immediately understood that Ye Xiwen was in the stage of breakthrough; he was shocked and angry. He was mad that Ye Xiwen disregarded him as he decided to go through a breakthrough at this time. It was simply provocative to undergo a breakthrough while at the same time battling with him.
On the other hand, he was shocked that Ye Xiwen, who was now just the Great Sage Initial, was already so terrible. If he was allowed to break through into the Great Sage Intermediate, it would be devastating.
The first Divine Lord was determined; he had to strike when the opponent was still weak. Ye Xiwen indulged in breakthrough undoubtedly was at the weakest time. This time was a good time to kill him.
Thinking of this, he immediately pounced forward to behead Ye Xiwen. Although Ye Xiwen was in the enlightenment state, he was not unaware as he reserved a hint of spirit for the battle. This allowed the battle to happen by virtue of instinct. When fighting with instinct, he even became more agile than before.
Ye Xiwen was struck again and again, then recovered again with Phoenix Regeneration technique, and continued the battle. With the deepening of his enlightenment, his strength was also rising. The number of injuries was gradually decreasing. There were signs of fighting with the first Divine Lord already.
The first Divine Lord was inexplicably horrified. He naturally knew that this was the result of Ye Xiwen’s enlightenment. Ye Xiwen continued to perceive the Dao and continued to improve his strength. He was alarmed and could not let Ye Xiwen go on like this.
When the first Divine Lord was devoted to delivering a full-blown attack, Ye Xiwen’s vigor escalated all of a sudden. As compared to the previous self, Ye Xiwen was entirely different. The qi in his body also instantly boiled up.
He suddenly felt that Ye Xiwen’s strength had suddenly increased by one level. He has attained the breakthrough!
After breakthrough to the Great Sage Intermediate, Ye Xiwen suddenly awakened from the state of sudden enlightenment. He felt that the qi flowed freely in his body; there was no trace of hindrance. The bottleneck he felt when he was in Great Sage Initial Peak was long gone.
Unless Ye Xiwen reaches the Great Sage Intermediate Peak again, he would come into contact with another bottle neck again.
As he broke into the Great Sage Intermediate, his entire body was undergoing rapid transformation. His body was transforming at a terrifying speed, becoming more powerful.
“Fight me!” Ye Xiwen opened his eyes, and the wounds he had sustained after fighting with the First Divine Lord by instincts were recovering at an alarming rate. The vigor in his body continued to rise.
