Initially, Huang Wuji was still worried about the safety of Ye Xiwen. In fact, like others, he felt that Ye Xiwen was a little too rash. He knew that Ye Xiwen would always do some shocking stuff with the guise of recklessness; he was sure that Ye Xiwen was not a reckless person. Ye Xiwen most likely had certain things firmed enough to back up the actions. However, no matter what he thought of, he couldn’t think of what Ye Xiwen had.
Even if Ye Xiwen said he could defeat a hundred experts in the same realm as him, he would believe it. In his heart, Ye Xiwen could even deal with a hundred Half-step Transcendent late Realm experts.
However, Half-step Transcendent Realm and Transcendent Realm were two entirely different cultivation realms. Even if he could deal with Half-step Transcendent Realm experts, he wouldn’t even be able to deal with a Transcendent Realm expert.
In fact, he might be killed with just one punch alone.
If Xiantian and Houtian were considered the first hurdle, then Legendary and Sage Realm would be the second one. As for the Great Sage and Transcendent Realm, it would be the third hurdle. The hurdle that exists between them was as significant, just like the distance from the skies to the earth.
He never expected Ye Xiwen’s combat prowess to become stronger the longer he fought. In fact, Ye Xiwen had even entered the Transcendent Realm after undergoing Heaven’s Retribution. Ye Xiwen broke through the bottleneck in one go and became the second Transcendent Realm expert among the peers with Huang Wuji being the first.
They were both from the Tibetan Star Summit. Despite leaving the Tibetan Star Summit after becoming the School Master, the Tibetan Star Summit was still his original home. As such, he was more biased towards the disciples of the Tibetan Star Summit.
Seeing how the junior brother that he had always been optimistic about was the second one to ascend to the Transcendent Realm, how could he not be happy? In fact, a thought even sprouted within his mind. My junior brother’s accomplishments might be more than that.
When such a thought emerged in his mind, it wasn’t able to be suppressed any longer. After all, Ye Xiwen’s performance was too shocking. When he entered the Tibetan Star Summit, he had already patched up the entire Tibetan Star Sutra. It was indeed a heaven-defying event.
For so many years, numerous generations of Tibetan Star Summit’s disciples had been trying to gain insight into the Tibetan Star Sutra. However, they weren’t able to gain any perception of the original version of it. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have to waste so much effort to venture towards the extraterrestrial areas searching for the original version of the Tibetan Star Sutra.
And yet, Ye Xiwen managed to perceive it. Such luck was heaven-defying. Things such as luck exist and were non-existent at the same time. For most people, they wouldn’t feel anything called “luck” throughout their mundane life. However, some heaven-defying people might get tripped by a Great Sage Tool when they just take a stroll somewhere and thus manage to acquire a Great Sage Tool.
Can you say that they have no luck?
Most people that have great luck would achieve an incredible accomplishment.
Now, he had only cultivated for around a hundred years and had already ascended to the Transcendent Realm. His accomplishments in the future were hard to be predicted.
Seeing how Ye Xiwen possessed a Transcendent Tool, everyone in the True Martial School let out a sigh of relief. For the first time, Ye Xiwen was gaining the upper hand.
On the other side, the extraterrestrial overlord experts’ expression changed drastically, especially in the sects where the four Transcendent Realm experts belonged. Their faces were ashen. Based on Ye Xiwen’s Heaven’s Retribution – the Five Elements Heaven’s Retribution, it was apparent what kind of horrifying combat prowess he would possess after ascending to the Transcendent Realm. Even so, they weren’t worried. After all, it was four against one.
However, their expressions changed drastically when Ye Xiwen displayed the mightiness of his Transcendent Tool.
Beyond the skies, the Tianyuan Mirror’s blood-colored radiance was emitted, as if it was a vast blood-colored energy ball. Within it, laws and laws were interweaving with each other. When the Tianyuan Mirror had transformed into a Transcendent Tool, the Transcendent Realm laws were already intertwined upon the mirror. Or, the laws contained within had been awakened.
Initially, the Tianyuan Mirror was the martial instrument of the Demon Lord. Naturally, it’s strength would be incredibly strong. However, after receiving a grave wound, its strength plummeted to rock bottom. Now, Ye Xiwen was merely doing everything he could to revive it and reactivate its functions. As such, even without ascending to the Transcendent Realm, Ye Xiwe was able to turn the Tianyuan Mirror into a Transcendent Tool. Otherwise, he would have to be like other Transcendent Realm experts. He would have to slowly craft it, until the day where he might acquire a Transcendent Tool.
Ye Xiwen attacked. As he extended his hand, boundless energies boiled within the skies. The sound of laws dancing around could be heard, without an end to it. It immediately blasted Wei Mingyang away.
Among these people, Wei Mingyang’s hostility towards him was the worst. He hated Ye Xiwen to the guts. As such, he was one of the people that Ye Xiwen had to kill.
The vast power descended. The longsword in Wei Mingyang’s hand was radiating with intense radiance and blasted upon the power. However, facing the mighty blood-colored power, it was nothing at all. Rays of blood-colored radiances bombarded upon him.
The rays of blood-colored lights were everywhere; everywhere were filled with the laws of a Transcendent Tool. It immediately suppressed him with the might of a colossal mountain and descended by wiping out everything surrounding it.
“Boom!” With a loud bang, Wei Mingyang’s longsword instantly shattered. The Tianyuan Mirror’s blood-colored light had utterly destroyed it.
“Pu!” Wei Mingyang spitted out a mouthful of blood. He wasn’t able to bear the enormous force that landed upon him. The knelt on one knee under Ye Xiwen’s pressure.
Wei Mingyang’s expression was extraordinarily ugly. He was such a distinguished prideful character and wasn’t fearful of everything in the world. He had never knelt towards others before. And yet, he was currently kneeling on one knee in front of Ye Xiwen. To him, this was an extremely shameful act. He was so frustrated that he felt like spitting blood.
At the same time, the combined attack of the other three people was coming towards Ye Xiwen. Bolts of Earth Lightning were striking their bodies and made their bodies covered in wounds. However, they didn’t care about it anymore. Compared to Ye Xiwen, the Earth Lightnings weren’t considered life-threatening at all.
The three Transcendent Realm experts were strong, especially when they attacked with their life on the line. The attacking force of the three of them pierced through the sky and immediately reached in front of Ye Xiwen.
“Heavenly Martial Heavens Severing Palm!” Ran Chengtian let out a loud yell and was the first to attack Ye Xiwen. His huge palm blasted a frightening radiance, reversed yin and yang, and the four elements – earth, fire, water, and wind. The most important essence of the Heavens Severing Palm was to sever a part of Heaven’s way and turn them into his strength.
The power of yin and yang and the four elements bombarded Ye Xiwen’s body.
On the other side, Xi Zhiyong and Mu Qingman had arrived shortly after.
Under such circumstances, facing the three Transcendent Realm experts’ killing techniques, even Ye Xiwen would have to give up on killing Wei Mingyang for now.
He turned around, and he clenched his fist. The Shattered Star First was instantly blasted out. A huge rumbling sound resounded, resembling the sound of a star spinning around. It immediately fell upon them.
“Boom!” An extremely horrifying loud bang resounded. When the Shattered Star Fist and the Heavenly Martial Heavens Severing Palm clashed against each other, a terrifying radiance of dao swooped outwards.
Although Ye Xiwen’s counter-attack was done in a very hurried manner, he wasn’t panicking at all. His pace remained the same. He managed to block Ran Chengtian’s attack.
However, Ye Xiwen did not stop. Almost at the same time, the palm of his other hand shot outwards with lightning speed. It was the Sky Collapsing Fire Cloud Hand.
Now, his grasp towards the Sky Collapsing Fire Cloud Hand was not any worse than anyone from the Fire Cloud Cave. It was much more potent compared to theirs.
“Bang!” Ye Xiwen’s palm landed on Ran Chengtian’s chest. Everything happened at lightning speed. It all happened in an instant.
Although his speed was rapid, Ye Xiwen’s strength was extremely horrifying, primarily when he used the Star Beast Avatar. Although he didn’t use the Tyrant Body, the Star Beast’s physical body was already horrific enough. It was apparent how horrifying it would be after devouring the core of a star and using the stars’ absorbed power to reinforce his own physical body.
Ran Chengtian let out a tragic scream, and a mouthful of blood was spat out. The bones within his chest were like papers and were all shattered with a “crack” sound. His body flew out like a cannonball and destroyed numerous meteorite fragments.
Although many things happened at once, everything happened in just an instant. Soon after, Ye Xiwen immediately reacted to something. He opened the Demon Wings in an instant, and his silhouette disappeared.
In the instant Ye Xiwen disappeared, Xi Zhiyong and Mu Qingman’s attacks arrived and struck the location where he previously was. It pierced through the skies, and even the chaos was showing itself.
“Where is he?” Xi Zhiyong was shocked. He wasn’t able to see Ye Xiwen’s silhouette at all. They had already witnessed how horrifying Ye Xiwen was previously. They naturally wouldn’t assume that he would be beaten into nothingness so easily. It was impossible.
“Careful, behind you!” Suddenly, Wei Mingyang’s scream arrived from a distance.
Xi Zhiyong and Mu Qingman were both surprised. In that instant, they felt someone appearing behind them.
When Ye Xiwen reappeared, he was already behind Xi Zhiyong. Among the Storm Wings, the Lightning Wings had received a massive increase in strength. As a result, Ye Xiwen’s explosive power in shifting had increased and reached an extraordinarily horrifying realm.
“Bang!” Ye Xiwen created a Rippling Mountain Seal and landed it behind Xi Zhiyong’s back. The Rippling Mountain Seal itself contained an adamant and ruthless power. When it landed with such force, it almost made his physical body disassembled. If it wasn’t for the laws of the Transcendent Realm forcefully locking his physical body into place, his body might already have exploded. His physical body wasn’t as strong as Ye Xiwen.
He flew to a faraway place and instantly fainted.
An intense panic flashed across Mu Qingman’s eyes. When she saw three of her partners losing to Ye Xiwen, she didn’t dare to remain. She turned into a ray of light and wanted to escape.
Ye Xiwen snorted coldly. He would never allow her to escape. His palm immediately enveloped the skies and landed upon her.
Another loud bang echoed. Mu Qingman transformed into a stream of light, and was slapped towards a nearby planet like a fly. The horrifying impact caused a mushroom cloud to arise.
