Chaotic Sword God - Chapter 3590
Chapter 3590: Daoist Master Shangqing
On the wind-swept ancient battlefield, Jian Chen and Daoist Master Shangqing hovered a thousand metres in the air, staring at one another from afar.
However, to these two Immortal Emperors, this distance of just a few kilometres was basically no different from being inches apart.
At this moment, Jian Chen remained at his peak condition. He was unscathed and filled with vitality. He was filled with turbulent strength.
On the other hand, Daoist Master Shangqing seemed a little miserable. Even though he had already changed into a fresh set of daoist robes, he was still injured with his energy greatly depleted, so the remaining strength he possessed was only seventy or eighty percent of his peak condition at most.
Daoist Master Shangqing stared at Jian Chen with mixed feelings and sighed. “Fellow Chang Yang, there’s something that’s been puzzling me for all these days. Just how did Immortal Emperor Li Shan lose to you?”
“On the Taiji Heaven, the sect I come from has been at conflict with Immortal Emperor Li Shan’s sect for several million years. Immortal Emperor Li Shan has also been my rival for many years, so I understand his strength far too well.”
“His strength is on par with mine. If we fight, it’ll be very difficult for either of us to emerge victoriously unless it is a true struggle to the death. The end result would probably be both of us running out of strength.”
“However, Immortal Emperor Li Shan lost to you, which puzzles me.”
Jian Chen smiled slightly in response. “Daoist Master Shangqing, a battle with me has now become unavoidable. Won’t you know very soon just how Immortal Emperor Li Shan lost to me?”
Daoist Master Shangqing nodded sternly and said, “That is true. However, with Li Shan as an example, I will treat you as a formidable opponent. I will no longer take the fact that you are at the Sixth Heavenly Layer into account anymore. As a result, I will use my full strength as soon as we start fighting.”
As soon as he said that, a tremendous presence rose up from Daoist Master Shangqing into the sky, seemingly forming a resonance with some kind of law within the heavens.
“Divine Lightning of Xuanchi!”
Daoist Master Shangqing formed a seal with both hands. A mysterious power connected with the world, immediately turning the sky above him into a sea of violet lightning. The sparks crackled, unleashing startling pressure.
A deafening rumble erupted in the sky. A colossal bolt of lightning turned into a stream of deep violet and cut through space, landing on Jian Chen mercilessly as it radiated with the devastating power of electricity along the way.
The violet bolt of lightning had already locked onto Jian Chen’s presence. It moved with startling speed, such that even Jian Chen developed the feeling that he could not avoid it. Even though he had grasped the Laws of Space, it was useless before this lightning.
The lightning directly devastated the surrounding space, disturbing the order of space. Unless his Laws of Space had reached the Ninth Heavenly Layer of Immortal Emperor, they would be rendered useless.
Suddenly, Jian Chen erupted with sword intent. He directly slashed out with the shining sword in his hand, colliding violently against Daoist Master Shangqing’s Divine Lightning of Xuanchi.
“Boom!” With a great rumble, Jian Chen was completely swallowed by the violet lightning. The lightning shot past him and slammed into the ground beneath in an unstoppable manner, making the entire earth shake.
A bottomless pit appeared where the violet bolt of lightning had landed.
Jian Chen had already vanished, having been sent deep underground by the bolt of lightning.
On the other side, Daoist Master Shangqing frowned. He was obviously aware of Jian Chen’s current state. He should not have been so weak since he could defeat Immortal Emperor Li Shan, right?
“Chang Yang is only at the Sixth Heavenly Layer, and he’s not protected by any god artifacts. Even if he manages to survive my Divine Lightning of Xuanchi, he should be left half dead,” thought Daoist Master Shangqin. He was obviously aware of the Divine Lightning of Xuanchi’s power. Let alone a Sixth Heavenly Layer independent cultivator, even Immortal Emperor Li Shan would struggle to fend it off.
However, as soon as Daoist Master Shangqing thought that, a figure flew out from the pit created by the Divine Lightning of Xuanchi. His figure shone dazzlingly. The Laws of the Sword suddenly gathered together before slashing violently towards Daoist Master Shangqing as a colossal strand of sword Qi.
That was Jian Chen!
A large portion of his skin had become charred as sparks continued to jump from the surface of his body. It seemed as if even his flesh had been cooked, giving off a sharp smell.
“What a tough body!” Daoist Master Shangqing narrowed his eyes and let out a gasp of amazement. Shortly afterwards, he formed a seal with one hand before pointing towards the sky. “The Divine Lightning as a Sword!”
In the sky, a streak of violet light suddenly descended, shooting towards Jian Chen within a startling storm of energy.
It was a sword condensed from lightning. However, the sword that was only around a metre long actually stirred up ripples in space as it flew over.
Jian Chen did not try to dodge at all against the incoming sword of lightning. He completely endured it with his body. The attack that he was launching did not falter, continuing towards Daoist Master Shangqing.
The sword of lightning pierced Jian Chen’s chest and emerged from his back before continuing onwards and striking a ruined mountain several million kilometres away as a violet streak of light. The entire mountain was reduced to ashes.
A colossal hole appeared in his chest. All of his organs and flesh in there had vanished!
His Chaotic Body was indeed powerful, but it only left him immune to the attacks of Sixth Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperors. As long as the attack had not surpassed the Sixth Heavenly Layer, it would struggle to even leave a mark on Jian Chen.
However, once the attack surpassed the Sixth Heavenly Layer and reached the Seventh Heavenly Layer, then it would be perfectly capable of breaching the Chaotic Body’s defences.
Daoist Master Shangqing was an extremely powerful Ninth Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperor, and he had used his full strength right from the beginning. Each of his daoist spells were on par with God Tier Immortal Techniques. Even regular Ninth Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperors would struggle to fend off the attacks, let alone Jian Chen who was only at the Sixth Heavenly Layer.
Despite being heavily injured, Jian Chen’s presence did not weaken at all. His battle prowess was unaffected. He ignored his wounds and continued onwards like he was unstoppable, suddenly slashing out with the sword Qi.
Daoist Master Shangqing did not panic. He swung his hands, and a damaged Taiji diagram immediately flew out. As it revolved slowly, it formed a colossal shield in front of Daoist Master Shangqing.
The Taiji diagram was a medium quality god artifact!
Jian Chen’s attack struck the damaged Taiji diagram, immediately tearing the god artifact into two, as it was already on the brink of destruction.
Daoist Master Shangqing retreated rapidly and never stopped with the hand seals. He extended a finger at the space and yelled out, “Daoist Spell of Xuanchi—Cometh, Wind!”
Fierce winds suddenly began to whistle through the surroundings. The violet gales turned into indestructible blades. As Jian Chen stood among the gales, he seemed to be sliced at by countless blades. Bone-deep wounds immediately appeared one after another on him.
The invisible wind blades were enough to pose a colossal threat to Ninth Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperors. They were extremely powerful. Even when Jian Chen pushed the defences of his Chaotic Body to the limit, he struggled to fend them off.
“Daoist Spell of Xuanchi—Plummet, Rain!”
As soon as the winds appeared, Daoist Master Shangqing used another spell, and the sky immediately began to pour.
This was not regular rain either. Each droplet of rain weighed tonnes like a mountain. When they landed on the ground, they left the earth rumbling like it had just been struck by a meteor shower. Immediately, the ground became riddled with holes.
