The Lion King’s estimations had all been correct, but he had missed one point. That was… he was still stuck in the Absolute effect of the Dragon Silencing Seal, and he now had to withstand the crazed fury of Long Shiya in that state. *BOOM* A single hammer blow. The Lion King’s body was sent flying by Long Shiya like a cannonball shot from a cannon, smashing savagely into the mountain. The next moment, a bout of light followed suit into the freshly opened hole. Gu Site had actually been smashed by the hammer right through the Heavenly Snow Mountain and back outside! This time, even if he did not die, he would definitely be severely injured.
Durability - at least island level
Speed - at least faster than lightning
Range - can shoot arrows from many kilometers away and be dead accurate.
Absolute Delay - Able to slow someone or slow something down to a snails pace for 12 seconds with his current cultivation basically time slow and the ability is absolute regardless if you are stronger than Zhou (within reason).
Some passages when he first go the ability and some explanations.
Tang Xian gave a humph and said: “What do you know! Absolute Delay is a monstrously strong skill, and can be even considered a heaven defying skill. Amongst the Di Huang Stage Heavenly Beasts, it is still considered one of the top skills. Furthermore, do not forget that you’re still only at the cultivation level of a single set of Heavenly Jewels, and your Stored Skills will improve and evolve as you get more Heavenly Jewels. When you reach 6 Sets of Jewels, you will find out how scary this Skill truly is.”
“I’ll give you a piece of advice though; the true strength of the Absolute Delay lies in two places…”
“The first is the that it’s an ability that can be easily manipulated around, and can be used with perfect compatibility with any Consolidated Equipment or Skill. You and Bing’er are both archers, so I’ll just give a simple example. If an enemy is using a weapon to block your arrow, but your arrow stops in the air for a second before continuing, what would happen?”
Listening to Tang Xian’s explanation, Zhou Weiqing and Shangguan Bing’er couldn’t help but show a startled expression.
Tang Xian continued saying: “The second key point about it is the word ‘Absolute’. That is to say, it will definitely succeed and have the same effect no matter how strong your opponent is, no matter the cultivation level difference. Although one second might seem like a very short time, but in a fight between experts, a second of delay can be the difference between victory and defeat, the difference between life and death. You should train hard on this Skill, and it will be useful to you all your life.”
Some passages of him using absolute delay on an opponent much stronger than him.
Without a doubt, even with Zhou Weiqing’s amazing archery and his Consolidated Equipment Overlord Bow, Zhou Weiqing was still unable to threaten Ming Wu. However, a something strange occurred – Ming Wu’s body froze in mid air. Although his body was still carried forward by inertia, but his speed was like a snail’s pace as compared to his previous motion.
How could this be?! Ming Wu’s face changed for the first time, shock, disbelief and even a hint of fear displaying out. Although he had been surprised several times by Zhou Weiqing earlier, nothing had such an effect on him as this. After all, when Ming Wu had dealt with the blow earlier, he had made use of his Heavenly Xu Energy to dissolve the power held within the arrow. Yet, when it exploded, his speed had shockingly still been affected, causing him to slow drastically. Furthermore, he was now circulating all his Heavenly Energy, even manipulating the Life Attribute of his Elemental Jewels, and yet he was still unable to resolve this slowing effect… which lasted a whole three seconds.
Three seconds might seem a short period of time, but sometimes it might just seem an extremely long time. Now, in the heat of combat, it was such a time indeed.
Passages of how Zhou uses time disorder against the slow barrier skill
A weird yellow light flashed out from their hands respectively, twisting the light rays as it sped towards Zhou Weiqing and enveloped him,
Instantly, Zhou Weiqing slowed drastically in mid charge, as if he was acting in some slow motion picture.
That strange barrier of yellow light was naturally the Slow Barrier that Ao Le and Liu Yinan had unleashed with their combined efforts. They both had Stored the same Skill, and releasing it together would not only increase its power, but also its area of effect.
Realising that his speed had been slowed drastically, a alarmed, panicked look appeared on Zhou Weiqing’s face, as his flailing fists in the air slowed to a crawl as he struggled with all his might, only to see his speed grow slower and slower.
Ao Le did not rush into attacking Zhou Weiqing, instead smiling as he said: “Bro Zhou, how is the feeling of this Slow Barrier of our husband and wife team? In truth, losing to our Time Attribute should be an honour to you. After all, the Time Attribute is one of the three Great Saint Attributes; even in the Heaven’s Expanse Palace, no one has an Attribute like this. Although your Evil Attribute is not bad, but alas your cultivation level is just too low. Facing this Slow Barrier that both of us have worked together to release, you do not stand a chance…”
As he said that, Ao Le lifted up his left hand, waving it towards Zhou Weiqing. At the same time, he stuck out his index finger and middle fingers, slowly drawing a line in midair at Zhou Weiqing’s body.
Two lines of yellow light shot out from his two fingers, not making a sound as they struck out at Zhou Weiqing, who felt everything darken around him, as if everything had become unreal, all part of an illusion.
Ao Le’s voice seemed to come from all directions: “This Skill is called Interlocking Time. The two bouts of light from my fingers will each slow and hasten the time in the area by one second respectively. Time will start changing, warping and become unstable, causing a massive energy field. This is similar in principle to your Spatial Rend, just that my Interlocking Time cannot be dodged. Goodbye now, Bro Zhou.”
The Interlocking Time Skill was not just a powerful attacking skill, but was also considered a Control Skill at the same time. As one of the Great Saint Attributes, the Time Attribute was definitely a force to be reckoned with, and not one of its Skills could be considered ‘simple’.
Zhou Weiqing had already been slowed and stuck in the Slow Barrier, and now with this Interlocking Skill used upon him, it was as if his entire body was frozen in space and time, unable to move. From the way things were going, it seemed as if the two bouts of yellow light were about to tear his body into two.
From Ao Le’s perspective, the only hope for Zhou Weiqing now was to activate his Lustre Gem and retreat from the Spatial Realm, otherwise he would be torn apart by his powerful skill. After all, the power levels between the two of them was just too huge, and his Interlocking Time Skill was also one of the top Time Skills available.
Yet… just as Ao Le and Liu Yinan thought that victory was in their grasp, a strange sight occurred…
A layer of invisible, twisting light appeared around Zhou Weiqing’s body, streaking across momentarily before disappearing.
Just that one short moment, but it changed the entire battle situation. Ao Le’s Interlocking Time Skill actually appeared behind Zhou Weiqing, and he also abruptly resumed his original speed.
Both sides were already extremely close by this point, and this abrupt change happened too suddenly for the two to react. Ao Le had already thought they had the victory in their grasp, and was in the midst of ‘acting cool’ when the sudden change occurred. As such, he did not have any time to react before Zhou Weiqing appeared right in front of him. —————————- “How did you do that? I do not believe that you can dodge past my Interlocking Time Skill!” Ao Le stood up straight with Liu Yinan’s help, but instead of tending to his injuries, he asked Zhou Weiqing urgently.
Zhou Weiqing grinned, saying: “Heh… it was an unexpected surprise right? You are right, your Interlocking Time Skill is indeed extremely powerful, and isn’t something that I can withstand. Even under the Demonic Change State, if I was under effects any longer, I would have probably died. Alas, you were just too overconfident in your own Skills. The Interlocking Time Skill is not perfect, or unbreakable. To be more accurate, every skill, under a particular circumstance, has a chance of being broken or resolved. What I used was the Time Disorder Skill… so you can rest assured it is definitely a Skill worthy of your loss.”
Ao Le’s eyes widened; even his pupils dilated with shock. This time, even Liu Yinan couldn’t help but exclaim in surprise: “Time Disorder?! You… you actually have the Time Attribute as well?! But… but… why do you not have the specific yellow colour light of the Time Attribute?”
Zhou Weiqing shrugged, saying: “I do not know about that… The Time Disorder Skill, with my low cultivation level, only has a mere one second effect, but that one second was more than enough to disrupt Bro Ao Le’s Interlocking Time Skill, and also temporarily disabling your Slow Barrier. That allowed me to escape their area of effects just in time to launch my attack. You were too confident, and too careless, and so I succeeded.”
Passages of Zhou using time distorted to stop the attacks of the netherlord from hitting him.
Immediately after that, Zhou Weiqing's hammers reached him. The eight long legs at the back of the Nether Lord moved forward to block and at the same time collided with the massive hammerheads. A ding was heard along with the terrifying energy fluctuations that burst out at that moment. Zhou Weiqing was surprised to find that he actually felt like he was unable to deploy his powers. The power of the Nether Lord was applied in all eight directions. The tyrannical power of destruction was like eight sharp needles piercing into his Dual God Strength Hammers. This immediately dissolved most of the strength with a soft bang. Zhou Weiqing had no choice but to retreat more than ten meters away.
At the same time, a layer of warped light appeared before Zhou Weiqing. It blocked the eight beams of Destruction Energy shot out by the eight long legs. Wherever the Destruction Energy made contact with this warped light, it would immediately disperse. None could fall on Zhou Weiqing. This was, indeed, the Time Disorder skill.
Passages of what time interrupt does and when he first got it. And since he is much more powerful than a heavenly king its area of effect would be a few hundred yards at least and the cool down time is nothing since he mastered skill manipulation.
The Time Interrupt Skill was an area of effect Skill, and according to the records of the Skill Storing Palace, if a Heavenly King Stage Master activated this Skill, within a hundred yards radius, all Heavenly Jewel Masters who were activating Skills or Consolidated Equipment would have them disrupted, or any channeling Skills would be interrupted as well.
The difference from the Heavenly Lightning Shock was that Consolidated Equipment which had already been summoned would not vanish, but Skills which were already in effect would be disrupted.
Without question, this was another powerful Control Skill, but Zhou Weiqing had to think for a long time before finally deciding to Store it.
The Skill he had used earlier to disrupt Ao Le’s Interlocking Time, the Time Disorder Skill, was a life-saving type support skill, and this Time Interrupt was a powerful Crowd Control Skill. Its only shortcoming was that when it was unleashed, it would not differentiate between friend and foe, and everything and anyone caught within its area of effect would be affected by it. The most powerful and overbearing thing about it was actually its success conditions – it actually had an Absolute Success Rate as long as the person in question was within three levels of the user. Anyone of more than three levels higher than the user would have its effects reduced accordingly. Perhaps this Skill was too powerful, and its cooldown was an astonishing one hour!
With Zhou Weiqing’s mere three-Jeweled cultivation level, when he used the Skill it would only be a three yard radius with him at the center, pretty much only of use at close range.
However, at that point, he was right beside Ao Le,almost joined to him by the scorpion hook, and naturally the effect of the Skill was at its maximum.
Using the Time Interrupt Skill right after the Dark Demon God Lightning Skill was a master stroke. The final effect was that as soon as the Triple Attribute Venom was infused into Ao Le’s body, his own Dark Demon God Lightning Skill was disrupted before it could fully burst into effect. At the same time, Ao Le’s last ditch effort at retaliating with his Skills and Consolidated Equipment had also been stopped.
In this way, Zhou Weiqing’s full plan had come into effect, and he had made his escape without injury. The deadly venom was now injected in his opponent, sufficient to threaten his life without claiming it straight away. It was far from the strongest effect of the Skill, but perfect for what he needed currently; not taking his opponent’s life while ensuring his own escape.
Time reversal - Able to rewind time in an area back to its old state time can be rewound back up to a day depending on cultivation and is an absolute skill. Later he masters this technique so that it does not drain all his energy but can only rewind time back a few seconds when he wants to fully control it.
Passages of him using time reversal for the first time to save a girl he loves.
However, just at that moment, when he had been thinking about reversing time, he suddenly remembered that he had this seemingly useless Skill. He clearly remembered that this Time Reversal Skill had an Absolute effect, that was to say, as long as it was within his control, then the reverse of time would be absolute.
Although Zhou Weiqing did not know if it would work or not, it was still his only chance to save Shangguan Fei’er. As such, without any hesitation, Zhou Weiqing activated this Skill.
With Zhou Weiqing’s current cultivation level, his Time Reversal Skill could affect an area of a ten metre diameter, and he could only reverse time back up to two hours. Of course, what to reverse and how long (up to the limit) was still under his control.
These passages show that now due to his saint energy he can control the time reversal skill.
On the journey over to the XuanTian Continent, Shangguan Bing’er had gained a clear understanding of all the many techniques and Stored Skills which Zhou Weiqing had available to him. This Stored Skill he had used just now was actually his highest-class Time Attribute Skill, the ‘Time Reversal’.
This technique had once saved Shangguan Fei’er’s life, which was why Shangguan Bing’er remembered it so clearly. However, normally speaking a technique like Time Reversal would cause time to go backwards by a full hour. Even if Zhou Weiqing improved his cultivation level, he would at most be able to gain enough control to extend it to a day or perhaps even longer, not shorter. More importantly, once used the Time Reversal technique started the user would be unable to stop the process, much less change midway through the process. As such, despite its great power, its practical effects were less so.
However… Zhou Weiqing had somehow succeeded in controlling it. Without question, he must have relied on his Saint Energy to cast the Time Reversal, causing this relatively useless Heavenly God Tier Skill to suddenly become truly monstrous in power.
Zhou Weiqing was no God Tier Consolidating Equipment Master in practice, but he had the knowledge. Now, thanks to this ‘Time Reversal’ technique, he was able to slowly complete a God Tier Consolidating Scroll one step at a time. So what if he made mistakes? He’d just reverse time and fix it! So long as he could successfully complete one stroke at a time, he’d eventually succeed in finishing the entire thing.
As for the expenditure in Saint Energy? To Zhou Weiqing, he only needed to use a tiny amount to keep the effect active. The energy expenditure was virtually negligible. He was after all a nine-Jeweled cultivator. However, even if he really was just a five-Jeweled cultivator, the low energy expenditure meant that he should still be able to sustain this process.
The black hole in front of Zhou Weiqing's chest then expanded to a diameter of one meter before it finally stopped. Zhou Weiqing raised his hand slowly, not to push the black hole towards Fen Tian; instead, he raised it up until it reached the top of his head. This was followed closely by the black hole being suspended in mid-air as it expanded once again, this time to a diameter of three metes above his head.
The pitch-black, distorted radiance then completely turned into a platinum color, followed immediately by Zhou Weiqing's entire body warping into something unreal and distorted.
"Come at me Fen Tian, I'll let you broaden your horizon with my ultimate critical strike." Zhou Weiqing's eyes were shimmering with a divine radiance; his right hand pointed to the front of Fen Tian, who was currently restricted by the Elven Empress.
An intensely distorted radiance appeared in the black hole above Zhou Weiqing's head and surged towards Fen Tian like an electrical snake.
That distorted radiance may seem weak and small, not even affecting the energy ripples in the least. However, when it came into contact with the Elven Empress' dark green-colored life force that was capable of trapping Fen Tian, all the dark green-colored life force vanished completely to everyone's surprise. Even the Elven Empress was swept away by the gushing distorted radiance as she disappeared into thin air along with it.
Its target was not the Elven Empress, but since it came into contact with the energy she released with the support of the twelve Elf Tribe's elders, it was attracted by it. Then, it swept the Elven Empress away as well. It was indeed a terrifying energy! Following that, it was branded onto Fen Tian's black-colored ball of Destruction Energy.
Fen Tian had already used his fastest speed to run when the Elven Empress was swept away. However, the surrounding space suddenly distorted, and his movements turned exceedingly slow, beyond his control. Before they knew it, that distorted radiance was then branded onto his body.
"Th-this... is the Genesis Time Law!" The shocked voice did not belong to Fen Tian's, but was from the Nether Lord. The distorted halo flashed past, before Fen Tian and Zhou Weiqing vanished in a split second.
Time Law was similar to the Spatial Law, but the Time Law that belonged to the Divine Attribute was obviously more powerful than the latter, though Fen Tian's Time Law had the word Genesis preceding it. What did it mean? It meant that Zhou Weiqing's Time Law had already merged perfectly with the Genesis Energy in his Saint Energy. Fen Tian's powerful Destruction Energy was then rendered incapable of reversing it.
The agitated energy in the sky was suddenly swept away into nothingness; even the huge engulfing hole created by Fen Tian earlier had vanished as well. The crowd who witnessed the battle from afar could feel their heart rates increasing into an extremely intense, violent level. What did Zhou Weiqing actually do? Why did Zhou Weiqing, the Elven Empress, and Fen Tian disappear from the sky? Where did they go? Time Law? How did the Time Law make people disappear?
No one understood what was happening there and then, but these questions did not matter to them anymore, even from the very beginning.
When the Elven Empress was swept away by the distorted radiance, she could only feel the time around her turning slow all of a sudden. Following that, the energy she released earlier and the energy in her body decayed at an astonishing speed.
Suddenly, a radiance flashed and she appeared at a strange place.
It was an amazing arena; its diameter was more than fifty meters with a twisted radiance surrounding it. Everything seemed and appeared to be unreal.
Another figure appeared at this moment. The Elven Empress scrutinized it closely and found that it was a young boy who had appeared out of nowhere.
The clothes on his body had already completely disappeared. Even though he looked like he was six to seven years old, his face was overflowing with a foul evil. He was also astonished when he caught sight of the Elven Empress.
"Are you the El-elven Empress?" His shocked, childish voice echoed. Even though it was the voice of a child, it was filled with a murderous intent. Moreover, there was no way to tell if the voice came from a boy or a girl.
"Nether Lord?" The Elven Empress gasped in surprise. She lowered her head and looked down at herself subconsciously; she was stunned immediately.
At this exact moment, the Elven Empress had the body of a child. There was only a pair of tiny wings on her back that could only set her afloat in mid-air. She was right, her own cultivation base had almost completely disappeared. In other words, she was in a state where she had transformed into her six-year-old self. Could the young boy before her be Fen Tian?
'Zhou Weiqing, what sort of skill did you actually use? How did we turn into this?'
It was at this exact moment that a figure that was much taller than they were, appeared within the horizon quietly.
Zhou Weiqing, who was dressed in the Ringless Ground Purging Set slowly emerged. He could not help but be stunned when he saw the arena with his very own eyes, with Fen Tian and the Elven Empress standing within it.
"I have succeeded. I've truly succeeded. The Time Law that restores childhood, hahaha! I've truly succeeded!" There was a layer of distorted light rings floating around Zhou Weiqing's body that made him seem slightly unreal, but his proud expression remained exactly the same as it was before.
"Weiqing, what's happening here?" The Elven Empress could not help but ask, while Fen Tian, who was only six years old, had a very unpleasant expression on his face.
Zhou Weiqing chuckled as he spoke, "This is one of my abilities. When I broke through to the Heavenly God Tier, I realized that the skill utilizes the Time Attribute. This skill allows me to turn life-forms in a designated area around me back to their childhood days while I remain unaffected by the transformation. It's effective on every living thing unless the life-form escapes the designated area around me when I use the ability, or if the life-form attacks me and renders me incapable of using the ability. If that's not the case, once this ability has been used, it'll definitely be successful. Initially, this ability was not powerful enough to shrink Fen Tian's Destruction Energy. However, Fen Tian was still only Fen Tian. He's just borrowing the Nether Lord's abilities. In fact, he isn't even the genuine Nether Lord. My ability will be effective as long as he still has a body. Moreover, this skill is powered by the merging of the Saint God Nucleus Core. Your Majesty, I am truly grateful to you for your actions in restraining him or I would not have been able to use this ability. Oh and... little Fen Tian, what else do you have to say right now?"
According to the 《Demonic Manual》, the Devour Skill was not just a combination of Attack, Defense and Support Ability, but also a ‘Super’ Skill that was actually top notch at all three factors. In combat, not only did it weaken the enemy, reducing their Heavenly Energy, it also recovered the user’s own energy. More importantly, it was also an insane support skill that actually helped in everyday cultivation – to be able to drain another person or Heavenly Beast’s Heavenly Energy to increase the user’s, it was definitely an immense boost to cultivation speed.
Of course, that isn’t to say that the Devoured Heavenly Energy could directly or instantly become the user’s own. However, the user could make use of the Devoured Heavenly Energy, and also through the suppression of his own Heavenly Energy, draw out the essence and core of the Devoured Heavenly Energy and making it his own. In this way, the cultivation speed was definitely miles ahead of any other ordinary Heavenly Jewel Master.
Of course, if one used this Devour Skill to indiscriminately ‘farm’ other Jewel Masters for cultivation, the user would likely become a major target, with everyone rising up to destroy him. After all, such a Skill was just too terrifying, too overbearing. However, if used against Heavenly Beasts, there would be no such problems. Especially so if the user was able to control the Skill properly to ensure the Heavenly Beast was not drained dry, it could then recover its own Heavenly Energy slowly. As such, the Devour Skill could be considered a support cultivation Skill!
The only drawback of this Devour Skill was the fact that it needed to be at melee range for it to work. Even if a Demonic Jewel Master was at the Heavenly Shen Stage, they still needed to touch their opponent for the Devour Skill to activate. Of course, as their cultivation level raised, it wasn’t just the hands like Zhou Weiqing currently used, but slowly every part of the body could be used to activate Devour.
As soon as the Devour Skill was activated, it would be extremely difficult to break free of it, unless the opponent was of a higher cultivation level than the user, of perhaps six levels or more, before he would have a chance of breaking free.
Both side’s Heavenly Energy had a certain gap between them, but the Demonic Change State and Devour Skills had both been raised up to the four-Jeweled stage, and the Devour Skill’s draining rate had been raised drastically. Adding to that the boost from Zhou Weiqing’s Legendary Set’s Yin Yang Giant Spirit Palm, as well as the momentary dazed senses of the Fire Attribute Heavenly Jewel Master from having both shoulders smashed, he was not able to resist the Devour Skill.
A large amount of Heavenly Energy flowed into Zhou Weiqing, re-nourishing his body and replenishing the substantial Heavenly Energy that he had already used in this short fight, almost topping him to full again. Although this Heavenly Energy did not belong to him, as long as he used it in a short period of time, it would be no different in terms of his combat strength.
It was not just his Heavenly Energy which was Devoured, along with it came the black clad man’s life force as well. As the time passed, the difference in power between the two grew, and they could clearly see the black clad man’s body withering, starting from his shoulders. When that withering effect reached his chest, his heart was instantly torn apart by the two suction forces from both sides, and with a spurt of blood, the black clad man died.
Zhou poured saint energy into his devour skill making it more powerful and this happens.
This was truly the first time since Zhou Weiqing had gained the actual Saint Energy that he could use the Devour Skill without holding back at all, with the aid of his Saint Energy!
The Bai Da powerhouse in his hands was trembling violently, and a strange sight occurred. Everyone could clearly see him actually growing old right in front of them as not just his Heavenly Energy, life force and even soul was drained out of him. The speed of Devouring was just too terrifying when it was powered with the drop of Saint Energy. When the other Bai Da Empire powerhouses recovered from Tian’er’s spirit attack, the Heavenly Jewel Master in Zhou Weiqing’s hand had already become a dessicated corpse, and in the next instant the corpse actually disintegrated into dust, blown away by the wind.
This time, the Devour Skill gave Zhou Weiqing a totally different feeling. He found that when the Heavenly Energy mixed with life force and soul energy entered his body, it instantly entered the Saint Energy whirlpool automatically, and drops of Saint Energy were transformed quickly, directly entering his own personal little Saint Energy whirlpool.
Zhou creates a devour whirlpool to stop attacks and absorb them.
In the blink of an eye, the grey whirlpool turned white, exploding to a hundred zhang radius, and the terrifying Devour power met the giant fireball.
At the same time, the illusory figure of the Demon God behind Zhou Weiqing suddenly floated forward together with him. Perhaps it was because Zhou Weiqing had suddenly infused a large enough amount of Saint Energy, in that instant, its body suddenly turned more solid, as it floated in front of Zhou Weiqing, its arms spreading wide as if holding the devour whirlpool, receiving the giant fireball.
*Puuu* A loud tearing sound caused the entire Lustre Spatial Realm to shake violently, but there was no explosion like one might expect for such a collision. When the giant fireball smashed into the Devour whirlpool, it was like a snowball smashing into a red hot metal plate, with an ear splitting hissing sound, it vanished right into the massive whirlpool.
Dark Demon God Lightning
Some passages of Zhou using dark demon god lightning for the first time.
That ball of light around Zhou Weiqing’s right foot seemed to warp the very air itself, causing several strange mirage illusions as it was expelled from Zhou Weiqing’s foot spinning ahead towards Shen Little Demon. It did not seem to move extremely fast, but as soon as it parted from his foot, Shen Little Demon’s body was suddenly stained with a layer of grey, as if her own body was drawing the glowing tri-coloured ball of light towards herself.
Shen Little Demon had quickly recovered from her moment of being dazed, and an intense glow shot out from her eyes. This was a critical moment of life and death, and it was also the last second of the Absolute Delay’s three-second effect on her.
Taking an abrupt deep breath, Shen Little Demon burst out in a brilliant bright light. At the same time, her left hand struck the Protective Heart Mirror at her chest, and a thick yellow-gold light shot out explosively from the heart mirror, seemingly drawn to the red light, before the two mixed together and struck out towards Zhou Weiqing’s tri-coloured ball of light like a golden fire dragon.
Indeed. This tri-coloured ball of light was the new Skill that Zhou Weiqing had just Awakened… his new Demonic Skill… Or perhaps more accurately a three Attribute Fusion Skill, the Dark Demon God Lightning!
This was the first time that Zhou Weiqing had even attempted activating this Skill. However, even though he had never used it before, he did not know why but as he had been planning his attacks against Shen Little Demon, he still felt a strange confidence in it, placing it at a position of utmost importance to deal his final blow. He somehow felt that this was definitely the most powerful skill in his current arsenal. ———————— As such, the Protective Heart Mirror on her chest was the strongest Consolidated Equipment she had, also the core of her Legendary Set. Still caught under the effects of the Absolute Delay,Shen Little Demon couldn’t help but expend every last bit of her remaining Heavenly Energy in putting out this final attack of hers; this was not just to deal with his Dark Demon God Lightning, but also in hopes that it would be sufficient to kill him off as well. Thus, she did not stint on using every drop of her Heavenly Energy, and more so, her life blood for stimulating the Consolidated Equipment. No matter what, she would do everything in her power to obtain victory.
The gold fire dragon looked a lot larger and grander than the tiny little ball that was the Dark Demon God Lightning, and as the two met, it seemed as though the brilliant flames would easily devour the entire ball.
However, when the moment when both skills met, a strange sight occurred.
The unassuming, almost weak-looking, Dark Demon God Lightning abruptly turned a weird grey; and when the two skills met, a large amount of the golden flames vanished. Like a knife cutting through butter, the grey ball sliced right the golden flames before speeding off ahead unhindered.
“… Impossible!” Shen Little Demon couldn’t help but exclaim out loud.
Alas, the facts were undeniably right in front her, no matter how much she willed it so. The gold fire dragon was quickly dissipated by the Dark Demon God Lightning, which did not seem much affected, though its grey light started undulating in a strange pattern that seemed increasingly unstable.
A huge explosion signaled the final end of the gold fire dragon, and the Dark Demon God Lightning finally struck right into Shen Little Demon’s hands, which she had put up to block as best as she could. The instant when it struck Shen Little Demon, quick observers would be able to note that the Dark Demon God Lightning was a lot smaller than before, almost a third of what it had been when Zhou Weiqing had first fired it out.
After all, their power difference was still three Jewels, and no matter how powerful that Dark Demon God Lightning was, despite it having sucked him dry of every bit of Energy, even the power deep within his blood, it was still not the full and true power of the Dark Demon God Lightning.
Even so, when the one-third of the Dark Demon God Lightning struck Shen Little Demon, its effect was more than sufficient to shock the entire Plaza once again.
Another explosion sounded out as an inexplicable sight appeared on the stage. The explosion did not knock Shen Little Demon away, instead seeming to come from all around her.
Accompanying the sound of the explosion was the Protective Heart Mirror at Shen Little Demon’s chest, which vanished swiftly. Her body seemed to stop, still as a statue as if frozen in place; many small blue lights snaked and crackled around her body, along with a grey-black mist surrounding her. Shen Little Demon’s face was frozen in a shocked expression.
Time itself seemed to freeze as nobody moved… not even the audience. Three seconds passed, as if an eternity had passed, then Shen Little Demon’s body crumpled to the ground. As she did so, her body started shuddering violently, as her skin started to glow in a grey, blue and black light, looking even stranger than the tiger tattoos on Zhou Weiqing’s body.
Even with her Heavenly Xu Energy protecting her body, it was clear that she had not been able to stop the Dark Demon God Lightning from invading her body. No one actually knew what had happened to her.
Some passages explaining that once hit by the dark demon god lightning it leaves behind a powerful toxin.
Shangguan Longyin said: “Shen Little Demon was struck by Zhou Weiqing’s Skill; on the surface level, it seems like it is a mixture of three Attributes – Darkness, Evil and Lightning. However, after much examination, I found that it isn’t just merely three different types of energy, but it has formed into three toxic venoms.”
“Three toxic venoms?” Even Lin TianAo’s interest was sparked.
Shangguan Longyin nodded and said: “Any form of energy, when it interacts in a harmful or undesirable way with a human body, will form a type of venom. Simply speaking, for example, when someone is burnt with fire, up to a certain point, they will be affected with fire venom. However, usually Heavenly Jewel Master’s Skills are a lot more direct, either they destroy you, or you block it. For something like this to warp into venom, this is also the first time I have witnessed it.”
“My guess is that when Zhou Weiqing released this last blow, it was severely weakened by Shen Little Demon. Furthermore, it is likely that at his cultivation level he hasn’t been able to unleash the full power of the Skill. If not, Shen Little Demon would have died already. In any case, all of those factors combined have resulted into this current situation; where her body is now being corroded by all three types of venom, Darkness, Lightning and Evil. Although she isn’t at immediate risk of death, if she isn’t healed, she will eventually lose her life.
“More importantly, these three venoms aren’t working individually, but are somehow intertwined and supporting each other. Earlier, I tried using my own Heavenly Energy to force out the venom, but as soon as I tried it, I had to give up.”
“Even when my Heavenly Dao Energy was infused into her body, the venom reacted instantly. Not only would I fail in forcing out the venom, it would force the venom to kill her off instantly. This is an almost incurable venom without the proper antidote.”
Shangguan Longyin paused at that point, before continuing: “This might sound arrogant, but in the entire mainland, for a venom to be incurable by me, there are at most 2 to 3 others who might have a chance of succeeding. Even if it were the Heavenly Snow Mountain Lord who was here with his Divine Attribute, I doubt he would have the confidence to say that he can definitely cure this venom. Also, if she dies from this venom, even the Resurrection Skill will not work on her.”
Hearing Shangguan Longyin’s words, everyone couldn’t help but suck in a deep breath. What a vicious venom!
Dragon Silencing Seal
Some passages explaining the ability of the dragon silencing skill. As with all his other skills they grow and become more powerful the higher his cultivation and last longer at eos the dragon siliencing seal will last for minutes.
Zhan LingTian was struck by a sudden fear as he realised he was unable to do anything. His Consolidated Equipment had disappeared, as if he was totally cut off from them. When he tried to use any of his Stored Skills, he found that he was also cut off from his Elemental Jewels. As a result, he was unable to access any of his Elemental Attribute powers, only able to access the pure Heavenly Energy within his body.
“Thirty Seconds. He will not be able to use any Consolidated Equipment or Stored Skills. Leave it to me for now. Go handle the others.” Zhou Weiqing shouted out loud while still in midair, right before he landed onto the ground. Clearly, he had been shouting out to the WanShou Battle Team leader.
The Skill that he Stored from the Demonic Dragon Lady was called the Dragon Silencing Seal, and its most powerful effect was that it was Absolute. As soon as it was unleashed, the target would not be able to dodge or block it; once Zhou Weiqing had locked onto his target, he or she would definitely have to withstand the effect of the Dragon Silencing Seal.
Dragon Silencing Seal did not have any offensive power at all, but it could Absolutely Silence and Restrict its target. Once afflicted by the Seal, the target would not be able to use any Consolidated Equipment or Stored Skills. At the three-Jeweled cultivation level, Zhou Weiqing was able to Seal his target for thirty seconds! Another benefit of the Dragon Silencing Seal was that it did not require him to use any of his own Heavenly Energy. However, at the same time, its usage was also highly restricted. Currently, he was only able to use it three times a day.
When his cultivation was higher, the Skill would naturally improve and evolve as well. According to the records, at the Heavenly King Stage, the Dragon Silencing Seal would turn from a single target Seal to an area of effect Seal, affecting everyone in a set area.
Thirty seconds. That was an extremely long time, especially in the heat of battle. Once a Heavenly Jewel Master lost the ability to summon his Consolidated Equipment or use his Stored Skills, that would be tantamount to losing almost sixty to eighty percent of his total power. This Dragon Silencing Seal might not have offensive power, but its use in combat was definitely top notch.
Like most Absolute Skills, the Dragon Silencing Seal would be much more useful and powerful when used against opponents of higher cultivation level; the higher the target, the better the effect. After all, the higher their cultivation usually meant their Consolidated Equipment and Stored Skill was much more powerful, and thus their reliance on them would also increase.
Another passage of the dragon silencing skill and how it stopped a dragons attack.
Raising his Legendary Hammers into the air, the Dragon Silencing Seal’s last appearance for the day activated, as Zhou Weiqing gifted it to the huge and powerful male dragon high up in the skies.
As the purple red light arced up into the skies, it struck the dragon firmly. Towards Absolute effect Skills like this or the Absolute Delay, even the Legendary Hammers could not boost its effect. However, it was still able to able to help boost the cast distance to reach the dragon high above.
The massive dragon which was already unable to to stop itself from unleashing its Skill, but all of a sudden, its entire massive body was enveloped with a purple red colour. It did not have any Consolidated Equipment, but it had its own dragon race innate talents and skills. In that instance, the Dragon Silencing Seal had brought about a critical use, stopping the Skill which had just been about to come out. All purple and red, the massive dragon stared down in shock from up above.
Tian’er had been right indeed. Earlier, the dragon had been mad with rage. Because of that, even though it had heard its wife’s shouts, it had still gone on stubbornly to try and kill all the humans. At this point, with its Skill suddenly disrupted, it had time to cool down from its unparalleled rage, assuaging its fury. Along with its wife urgent calls as well as sensing its wife’s life force stabilizing, the large dragon finally calmed down.
Demonic Dragon God Seal
Some passages explaining the demonic dragon god seal and what it can do.
What Zhou Weiqing was currently unleashing was the second Skill that he had Stored from the Demonic Dragon Lady, also a Fusion of the Darkness and Demonic Attributes. The name of the Skill was the Demonic Dragon God Seal, and it was also one of the Demonic Dragon Lady’s top Skills.
The Demonic Dragon God Seal’s effect was actually very simple, yet it was rated eleven and a half Stars, and the most important factor in that was because it too was an Absolute Skill.
The Demonic Dragon God Seal was released through both eyes, and just like the Dragon Silencing Seal, it did not take any Heavenly Energy. As long as the person met eyes with the caster, and their Heavenly Energy cultivation level was less than four stages below the caster, then this Skill would take effect.
Demonic Dragon God Seal. What it Sealed was the Spirit. That was to say, a person who had been afflicted with the Demonic Dragon God Seal would have his spirit and soul totally Sealed, becoming like a mindless zombie, totally under the control of the caster… almost to the extent of being like a duplicate body of the caster.
Of course, there was also a simple, though huge, restriction on the Demonic Dragon God Seal. That was to say that only one of it could take effect at any time. If he wanted to control someone else, he would have to give up the control of the first person.
On the surface, the Demonic Dragon God Seal did not seem as terrifying as the Dragon Silencing Seal. However, when Zhou Weiqing saw the introduction to this Skill, he instantly sensed how extraordinary it was.
Without question, the Demonic Dragon God Seal would grow in power along with his cultivation level. If one day Zhou Weiqing’s cultivation level was at the Heavenly God Stage, then he could even control a Heavenly Emperor Stage powerhouse. Of course, the caveat was that he had to be four stages above the one he wanted to control.
Many times, a critical linchpin to matters was not just so easily solved by martial prowess. This Skill could come in surprisingly handy at times. It could be said that with this Skill, it allowed Zhou Weiqing to have a puppet to control.
This shield of grey light was called the Ward of the Demon God, and it was another Demonic Attribute Skill that had automatically Awakened for Zhou Weiqing when he had reached the five-Jeweled stage; in a similar fashion to how his Dark Demon God Lightning had Awakened previously.
The Ward of the Demon God was not a Fusion Skill like the Dark Demon God Lightning, purely only of the Demonic Attribute. However, once he stood in the Ward of the Demon God, the Demonic Attribute Heavenly Energy seemed to have a new and unique circulation fashion, able to Devour all the Evil, Demonic and negative emotions in the atmosphere for its own use. To use it in the middle of a battlefield could be said to be like a fish entering water, and the grievances and negative emotions of all the fresh deaths of soldiers swarmed into the grey shield of light like many rivers streaming towards the sea. The Ward of the Demon God had an extremely powerful defensive capabilities even at the start, and this increase in energy only made it stronger. Even Barthez’s sabre was not able to break through the layer of defense, not even leaving a mark.
When Zhou Weiqing realised that he had Awakened a purely defensive Skill, he had been so overjoyed that tears almost streamed down his face! This could be said to be a dream Skill of his, especially given his character and how afraid of death he was. At that point, one could imagine his sheer joy and excitement. This was also the reason why he had dared to bring Shangguan Fei’er and Lin TianAo alone to invade so deeply into enemy territory. Indeed, in order to break through his current Ward of the Demon God, even for a seven or eight Jeweled Heavenly Jewel Master, if they did not have a God Tier Consolidated Equipment, they would not be able to do so.
At that moment, Zhou Weiqing's eyes turned gray. He retracted the Dual God Strength Hammers in his hands as a rich gray color instantly emitted out from his right leg. He shot up into the sky like a cloud of black smoke as the whitish-gold starlight surrounded him. Zhou Weiqing's body vanished, and similar to before, a gigantic shadow that also grew to a thousand meters tall appeared in the sky instantly. It was in no way weaker than the Destruction God before them. It had an extremely handsome and a pale face with a pair of gray eyes. In the middle of its forehead, was a fine vein that stretched to the area between its brows. The gigantic shadow was giving off a demonic aura.
Demon God. Yes — this was the Demon God. Zhou Weiqing could not claim a Divine Territory on his own so it was impossible for him to summon the god from his own attribute like Fen Tian. However, it should not be forgotten that he possessed the power of the Demon God in his blood, and the Demon God was also one of the most powerful gods. The Demon God appeared, and with Zhou Weiqing's Nebula Saint Energy, it forcefully broke through the seal from the Destruction God with its overwhelming demonic aura and swelled abruptly.
The Demon God's body was very distinct, and it seemed like it was an entity by itself. If it was not for the fact that not many people that knew Zhou Weiqing only had a cultivation base at the Maximum Level of the Heavenly Emperor Tier, they would think that both the Demon God and Destruction God were on the same level. The manifestation of the Destruction God bore a resemblance to Fen Tian's looks as it sparkled with a rich purplish-black glow. Even its eyes were shining with a purplish-black light. Its hair was a devilish purplish, and it was filled with a ruthless aura.
Meanwhile, on the other side, the Demon God that Zhou Weiqing transformed into clearly did not look like him. It had a gray robe covering its entire body while its gray eyes were filled with endless pride. Intense disdain gleamed in its eyes as he looked at the Destruction God before him. The two, thousand-meter tall giants faced each other in the air while they released the powerful aura that only gods possessed. The powerhouses from the Heavenly Snow Mountain and Peerless Sect who were in slight despair saw hope again. Although they had no idea how Zhou Weiqing managed to do it, at the very least they now had a powerhouse who could fight the opponent.
Surprisingly, there was a human-like smile on the extremely handsome Demon God's face. In accordance with his odd character, it gave off a demonic yet mysterious feel. Although he was smiling, his gray eyes were filled with extreme coldness. ————————- On the other side, the Demon God that Zhou Weiqing transformed into did not move as well. It was just standing there quietly as its gray eyes gave off a demonic glow that shone in all directions. The overbearing force of suppression had forced out a path from the Destructive Divine Territory on his side. It did not affect the Natural Divine Territory nor did it look after the powerhouses from the Love Valley and Blood Red Hell. It was not Zhou Weiqing's first time summoning the Demon God. However, there was no doubt the control he had on the Demon God would rise significantly each time he summoned it. Zhou Weiqing only managed to summon a faint consciousness of the Demon God during his first try and the instant protection of the Demon God during his second try. This time, he managed to summon an actual projection of the Demon God. Moreover, it was projected with the part of the abilities of the actual Demon God.
That was how powerful Zhou Weiqing was. The greatness of Saint Energy was boundless, and it allowed him to unleash the power of his bloodline to the highest degree. It was neither possible for Zhou Weiqing to release the actual Demon God, nor was it possible for him to actually become a Demon God. However, he could use the Demon God's power in his battle. Although he had no idea how long this Demon God that he summoned would last, this was the only way to defend against Fen Tian at the moment.
Fen Tian who was a thousand meters tall at the moment, let out a ferocious roar as the terrifying purplish-black light suddenly soared upward. Like countless waves, they hit the gray sky on the Demon God's side.
Flashes of purplish-black light transformed into gigantic devouring mouths that were in a frenzy as they tore and destroyed the Demonic Energy in the air.
The Demon God finally moved, and there was a hint of anger on his handsome face. He seemed to be really agitated by Fen Tian. He lifted his hand slowly and the Destructive Energy before him, approximately tens of thousands of meters in the sky completely solidified from the Demon God lifting its hand. The Demon God clenched his right fist tightly as a gigantic crack that traveled tens of thousands of meters in the sky appeared just like that. All the Destruction Energy that was shot at it at the beginning vanished, as the gigantic crack appeared that seemed to tear the sky in half. When the Demonic Energy appeared like a domineering storm with rolling clouds, the Destruction Energy that initially suppressed the Demon God's side was instantly devoured.
Fen Tian widened his eyes in shock as two beams of purplish-black light shot out from his eyes. What did it do? Did the Demon God just devour his Destruction Energy? How was this possible? Could Destruction Energy even be devoured? The Demon God would definitely not be able to devour the Destruction Energy if Fen Tian possessed true Destruction Energy, one that could destroy the world. Unfortunately, his Destruction Energy was similar to Zhou Weiqing's Saint Energy. There were impurities in it, and his Destruction Energy was not as pure as Zhou Weiqing's Saint Energy. One could imagine how powerful the Demon God was judging by his Devour ability. Moreover, Zhou Weiqing was supporting the Devour Skill with his Saint Energy, causing even the Destruction Energy was devoured by the terrifying Demonic Energy. ———————- The gigantic heavy sword came from the sky. As the Demon God faced the icy cold, purplish-black Destruction Energy, the sky sank. The whole sky seemed like it was cracking from when Fen Tian swung his sword, and the crack spread towards Zhou Weiqing's direction. The Demon God moved as its eyes sparkled. Not only did he not stagger backward, he moved forward with both his hands lifted up and put his palms together on top of his head.
Demonic and Destruction Energy spread out immediately and turned into a circle of distorted ripples that exploded in the sky. The collision this time drove the Natural Divine Territory tens of thousands of meters away. Fortunately, the battle between the Six Ultimate Heavenly Emperor Long Shiya and Shen Mo was on the other side of the Natural Divine Territory. Otherwise, the aftershock might affect them, and they might have to temporarily end their battle. It was also fortunate that the collision happened in the air or else the clash might cause half of the Wan Shou Heaven to vanish forever from this world.
What was more terrifying was at the back. As the distorted ripples faded away in the air, what appeared next was shocking. The Demon God's palms that were pressed together abruptly caught Fen Tian's destructive heavy sword. Fen Tian could not move, and it was the first time the two gods were in close proximity to each other. They looked at each other.
The Destruction God's purplish-black eyes had ferocious flames bursting out of it. His huge and muscular arms pressed down with all his strength as he attempted to swing the destructive heavy sword down on the Demon God's body. However, it was obvious that the Demon God's strength was far beyond that of the Destruction God. Its palms that were pressed together did not move at all, and there was not even a chance for the destructive great sword to escape.
That was the difference between an imitation of a god and the projection of a god. Judging by their levels, Fen Tian was below Zhou Weiqing after all. Moreover, the Demon God possessed the Demon God bloodline. That was why the projection had similar characteristics to him and was so powerful. Zhou Weiqing, who had the ten-piece Ringless Ground Purging Set on him, elevated his power by 1024-fold. One could imagine how powerful he was with that elevation of power. Even without the Demon God, Fen Tian might not be Zhou Weiqing's opponent judging from their strength.
The Demon God's right leg moved. It was the most powerful part of Zhou Weiqing's body. His leg kicked towards the side of the Destruction God's face at lightning speed. At that moment, the Destruction God only had two options. He could either let go of his sword or fight forcefully. Naturally, Fen Tian was unwilling to give up on the heavy sword in his hands. He had a weapon while the Demon God did not. He thought it was his biggest advantage at the moment so he chose to fight by force. The Destruction God lifted his left leg and extended his knee to block the Demon God's leg that was kicking at him.
It was another tremendous bang. The Destruction God roared, and it caused the Destructive Divine Territory in the air to spread outward temporarily. Those standing below could clearly see a cloud of warped light spreading out, and they could clearly see that the Destructive God's right leg became slightly distorted. It was obvious that he suffered a heavy loss.
The disdain in the Demon God's eyes became even more intense. However, he let go of the destructive heavy sword because the Demon God's hands could not take the Destruction Energy that the destructive heavy sword was giving off. It was good enough because the Destruction God was only left with one leg. By then, it was obvious that who the victor and loser were.
The Demon God's movements were simple. His body suddenly became incorporeal the instant he let go of the destructive heavy sword. The destructive heavy sword swung across its incorporeal body that was a thousand meters tall and landed on nothing. Zhou Weiqing was using the Spatial Law that he was most proficient at, as he controlled the Demon God to utilize the Spatial Law.
As the battle progressed, Fen Tian's experience began to show. He noticed something was wrong when his sword hit nothing, and he reacted instantly by letting go of his sword — at the very end, he decided to let go of his heavy sword. He pressed his fists against each other on his chest and coincidentally blocked the last slap when the Demon God appeared out of thin air. An intense collision exploded in the air and the two gods began fighting again. Meanwhile, the Destruction God's left leg was recovering at a stunning rate. It would not die as long as it had sufficient Destruction Energy. It was not its actual body after all.
Fen Tian's heavy sword that was thousands of meters long fell from the sky directly onto Wan Shou Heaven. The intense bang was like an earthquake, and as a result, Wan Shou Heaven gained a gigantic canyon. The ground split opened as terrifying Destruction Energy spread across almost a hundred miles before it stopped. Naturally, that left a permanent mark on Wan Shou Heaven. —————- The Demon God spread out his arms on both sides of his body. His whole body shook forcefully. Numerous gray balls of light shot out from the body of the Demon God. Each gray ball of light contained energy with multiple attributes.
This was the Dark Demon God Thunder. However, it was not the original Demon God Thunder. When Zhou Weiqing summoned the Demon God, he made full use of all of his attributes. He relied on the Six Ultimate Godly Light Formation to create this new version of the Demon God Thunder by fusing the six attributes together in an orderly manner. It could be said that any one of the balls of light from the Demon God Thunder could make a Heavenly King-tier powerhouse freeze in shock, in absolute amazement. Moreover, thousands of them appeared at the same time. Its power could only be imagined.
The terrifying Demon God's Thunder shot to the sky instantly. It then swiftly headed for the Destruction God. But Zhou Weiqing controlled the Demon God and remained still because the Destruction God floating before him continued to give Zhou Weiqing a sense of peril. It seemed as if a disaster would befall him the very moment he got close.
This time, there was finally a roar. It was as though there were a thousand thunders cracking in the air. Thunder rolled and the sky turned bright. Time, space, darkness, wind, thunder, and evil created a moving melody, albeit a destructive one.
Zhou Weiqing was confident that with such an attack, even a regular Heavenly God-tier powerhouse would suffer heavy damage. Moreover, his current objective was to interrupt whatever Fen Tian was doing.
The horrifying fluctuation of energy severely distorted the space around them. Zhou Weiqing could no longer see the appearance of the Destruction God clearly. Surprisingly, he was still able to see the bright glowing light from the purple crab. ——————- A crisp sound resonated in the air. Even though it did not sound as horrifying as the previous rumble, with just this one loud and crisp ding, all of the powerhouses who were levitating in mid-air to watch the battle suddenly dropped toward the ground. They dropped for almost a thousand meters before they could carefully regain control of their bodies. It was a long gray sword that appeared to be much more slender compared to the Destruction Sword. It had a gray, crystal-like body with a dazzling gray light that radiated brightly from its body. The air around it was so sharp that it seemed even sharper than the Destruction Sword.
The sword was not long. It looked like it was just about 1.5 meters long. Before such a gigantic sword like the Destruction Sword, it resembled a speck of dust. However, it was exactly this speck of dust that blocked the path of the Destruction Sword.
The gray sword light shimmered, stretched out and became a thousand meters long before it obstructed the Destruction Sword abruptly. The two swords came to a halt in mid-air as they came in contact. Without warning, a gray figure materialized soundlessly in the air.
A figure that was a hundred meters tall. Evil yet handsome. It was the Demon God.
However, unlike the Demon God that Zhou Weiqing had summoned before, the current Demon God appeared more devilish. Furthermore, there was another figure that could be seen behind the Demon God. His hand was holding Tian'er who had previously fallen into despair.
This person was entirely enveloped in a white armor that could only be described to have absolute magnificence and dazzle. The entire armor set that was white in color appeared to be glittering and translucent. The armor seemed to be heavy as it covered his entire body. Apart from that, it seemed like a gigantic dragon was constantly swimming within the armor as ripples of platinum-colored light continuously radiated from it. A visible cluster of the nebula was spiraling continually at his back, and that was none other than the Astral Divine Territory. One could easily imagine just how powerful the armor set was with the Astral Divine Territory embedded in it.
The arms on the armor set were notably thick, with two sledgehammers in both hands. The hammers were not particularly big. However, it was apparent that the two lights that emanated from them were projecting their images in the sky, creating two gigantic energy sledgehammers that were a hundred meters long. They looked like a Heavenly Skill Image but even Fen Tian's Destruction Divine Territory could not seem to go near this pair of hammers.
Right in the middle of the chest of the armor was a piece of crystal clear milky gemstone that was in the form of a human being. Upon closer inspection, was that not Zhou Weiqing who was sitting cross-legged over there?
That was right, Zhou Weiqing had completed his consolidation. He had completed the last consolidation of his Ringless Ground Purging Set. The eleventh piece of the Ringless Ground Purging Set was no longer gold in color but a white god set. It was a true god set. Although the Boundless Infinitum Set was made up of eleven pieces as well, it was significantly inferior compared to the Ringless Ground Purging Set.
Not only did Zhou Weiqing summon the Demon God's Illusion, he actually managed to merge himself with it. It allowed the Demon God's illusion to bring into play a much greater power than before, to the point that even the Demon God's Sword was summoned. Just like how Fen Tian's power was magnified, similar changes could be seen in Zhou Weiqing as well.
Unexpectedly, the Demon God's body became incorporeal. In no time at all, the Demon God's sword expanded in the air and became a hundred meters long before it fell into the Demon God's hand. With a light flick of the long sword, he forcefully smacked the Destruction Sword away.
Touch of Darkness - sends out dozens of dark tentacles than can reach out a few km away and latch onto the target with with a pulling force of a few million Jin at least. The skill also heightens his senses will stay active as long as he has energy.
A passage about skill from the beast it was stored from
"This was a skill that Zhou Weiqing had gotten from a huge black big octopus, and it was said that if this Zong Stage Heavenly Beast used it, the Touch of Darkness’ radius was up to one kilometer, and once it reached its target, it’s sealing strength was more than 100,000 jin strength and it was used to pull in its food instantaneously.
Zhou Weiqing knew from Shangguan Bing’er that the skills would improve and evolve automatically as the number of Elemental Jewel increased, and the evolution rate of the skills for Heavenly Jewel Masters was once again one-and-a-half times that of an ordinary Elemental Jewel Master. As such, if his cultivation in the future reached a certain point, the strength of this ‘Touch of Darkness’ skill would also naturally become extremely terrifying, and could absolutely be classified as one of the Darkness Attribute’s top skills."
Blood Rites Seal of Darkness - This was one of the Darkness Seals that was specially targeted at Sealing servants or slaves. Once the master died, the Sealed servant would also perish. Is not the most powerful Seal amongst the Darkness Attribute Sealing Skills, but it had one of the strongest binding effects. If the servant disobeyed the master, a single thought from the master could cause untold pain to the servant, and was one of the more vicious of the Sealing Skills. At the same time, it was also one of the most widely used of the Darkness Seals.
Some passages of Zhou using the seal of darkness after using the dragon god seal to make it easier to plant the seal.
His entire body paralyzed, Lei Zi could only watch and see as Zhou Weiqing’s left hand moved slowly to his own forehead. The next instant, a terrifying Darkness Energy flowed directly into his mind, invading his very thoughts.
His spirit wavered as he somehow lost focus, and within a blink of an eye, Lei Zi could tell that it was a Darkness Sealing Technique. No! I cannot be Sealed like that, or I’ll end up a mere slave! His spirit and consciousness struggled with all his might.
Alas, at this moment, he saw a pair of purple red eyes staring right into his own. Two flashes of purple red light shot forth into his own orbs, and his struggling spirit energy was dispersed. The next moment, he felt a cold sensation on his forehead, followed by a sudden heat. A drop of blood appeared on Zhou Weiqing’s fingers, forming a symbol seared there… It was the Blood Rites – Seal of Darkness!
Under ordinary circumstances, Zhou Weiqing could only use the Blood Rites – Seal of Darkness to seal a person if he was willing and cooperative. Otherwise, it would be easy for him to suffer from backlash. This was especially so since Lei Zi’s Heavenly Energy and cultivation level was higher than his own.
However, with just the spiritual oppression and crashing from the an overpowering Skill like the Demonic Dragon God Seal, he was already able to break through his opponent’s defenses, allowing the Blood Rites – Seal of Darkness to succeed.
Using these two Skills in tandem was a suggestion that Long Shiya had made to him. Under his guidance, Zhou Weiqing was now able to fully control the Demonic Dragon God Seal to unleash a powerful spiritual attack. This was tantamount to making this single Skill have two purposes. Facing enemies with stronger cultivation levels, he was able to use it as a spiritual attack, while facing those weaker than him, he could use it for the original ‘controlling’ purpose. Now, even when compared to the Dragon Silencing Seal, it had become just as useful.
Yun Li’s judgement was indeed accurate – the Darkness Attribute Skill was indeed a Curse Skill, and its name was the Curse of Doom. Its powerful effect was to weaken the opponent’s defense, attack and lastly to increase their sense of pain. This Skill was rather strange, the higher level it was, the shorter the duration, but the stronger the effect. At the first level, it lasted 12 seconds, and the three attributes were all weakened by ten percent. It was rather useless at that level, besides its long duration. However, every Jewel cultivation level that was added would increase the power of the curse by ten percent for all three attributes, but the duration would shorten by a second. As such, with three sets of Jewels, Zhou Weiqing’s Curse of Doom would weaken Lin TianAo’s defense, attack by thirty percent, and increase his sense of pain by thirty percent as well, for a total of ten seconds! This was extremely powerful indeed. In the future, if Zhou Weiqing ever became a twelve-Jeweled Heavenly Jewel Master, this skill could possibly bring his opponent’s defense to a negative, even if it was just for a second, it would be more than sufficient for any other skill to deal a heavy injury.
Some passages of Zhou using hell’s angel for the first time.
After the raised Dual Legendary Hammers released the Ward of the Demon God, in the next instant, above the Hammers a pitch black light shimmered into existence, slowly spreading outwards into a vague human shape, with three sets of wings behind its back. Although it was hazy and unclear, its basic shape was still relatively recognizable.
The six black wings spread out slowly, and a strong and majestic aura pressured down the entire area, as if making it difficult for them to breathe.
The senses of the war wolves were definitely much keener than their riders, and in that instance they all sensed danger, desperately attempting to retreat. However, as they were in the midst of the sabre formation, which was extremely tightly packed, how could they retreat so easily like that?
What… what is that?! Barthez was given a big shock. He was at the outer regions of the formation, and without hesitation he retreated. He had heard so much from his big brother about how Zhou Weiqing had used the Dark Demon God Lightning on him, and how a shadowy image had appeared then.
Behind the six black wings of the shimmering image, a deep purple colour appeared, and the presence and pressure intensified. In that very moment, it was as if the bright sun in the sky grew dimmer.
A thick darkness seemed to fall over them all, along with the beating of the six wings. With Zhou Weiqing in the center, the darkness spread outwards, enveloping a hundred yard radius totally.
Originally, with Zhou Weiqing’s Five-Jeweled cultivation level, when he unleashed this Skill, it would only be a radius of fifty yards. However, with the boost from the Legendary Hammers, it allowed him to extend the radius of the Skill to affect a hundred yard radius.
Usually, the boost of the Legendary Hammers were not as effective on the offensive power of Skills, but very effective on the lasting time or area of effect of the Skills. For example, if it were the Fetters of Wind, the boost would be on doubling the time it lasted. After all, Zhou Weiqing was still only a five-Jeweled Heavenly Jewel Master. Of course, with the boost on the power of Skills also came the increase in drain of Heavenly Energy, though with the effect of the Dual Legendary Hammers, the gain in the effect far outweighed the increase in Energy used.
As the black purple light flashed across, all the Wolfman Cavalry soldiers suddenly felt a terror deep in their hearts. However, they were soon surprised to realise that they were all fine after all. That dark purple light had flashed once and disappeared, as if having no effect or damage on them at all. Even the swiftly retreating Barthez started momentarily as he saw his soldiers in front were totally fine. It was clear that the Skill was different from the one his brother had described, but could it be that it was just a useless Skill that was only for scaring others? Well… the answer could only reveal itself next.
The floor on the radius of hundred yards which the light had covered had somehow turned a dark purple colour unknowingly. The next instant, several large dark purple bubble of air rushed out from below the ground, as if there was boiling water below. The entire zone turned into a world of black and purple, and screams rang out from within. Any Wolfman Cavalry soldier enveloped by the bubbles were totally melted swiftly into a black gooey liquid before being totally swallowed up, and the bubbles continued growing, swallowing everything before them.
All of this did not seem to happen at a very fast speed, but it was definitely an overpowering and brutal, unstoppable force. Facing such a terrifying destructive power, even some of the low ranked Heavenly Jewel Masters amongst the Wolf Cavalry soldiers could not escape or hold out against it. These black-purple bubbles seemed to have a strangely powerful suction, and even if the soldiers tried to get their war wolves to bound over them to dodge it, it was a futile attempt. In the end, no matter blood, flesh or bone, all matter seemed to be dissolved within that terrifying bubble to become part of it. A thick field of negative emotions seemed to grow continually over the area, concentrating over the center where Zhou Weiqing was, causing his Ward of the Demon God to continually grow stronger. In truth, even Zhou Weiqing was startled, as he did not imagine this Skill of his would have such a terrifying effect.
This was a Skill that he had Stored in the Heavenly Jewel Island, from a top level Heavenly Emperor stage Heavenly Beast. That Heavenly Beast was the most powerful one in the entire Heavenly Jewel Island for Darkness Attributes, at least amongst those that were open to public. Just like the Demonic Dragon Lady, a Heavenly Skill Image also appeared when he used the Skill, showing that it was as close to a Heavenly God Tier Skill as possible.
Long Shiya had told Zhou Weiqing previously that although these Skills had a Heavenly Skill Image, they were not truly at the Heavenly God Tier stage yet. The difference between the two was that a true Heavenly God Tier Stage Skill’s Heavenly Skill Image would be extremely clear and distinct, and they would also change accordingly as the Skill activated.
Even so, though Zhou Weiqing’s Skill was not truly at the Heavenly God Tier Stage, its power was terrifying enough, definitely not one to be scoffed at. Previously, the reason why Zhou Weiqing had chosen it to be his Fourth Darkness Attribute Skill was because of its mass area of effect.
The name of this Skill was Hell’s Angel. This was Zhou Weiqing’s first time using this skill, and even he had not expected that its power would be so terrifying. Within the radius, not a single person was able to withstand the Skill. Every contact with the bubble taking a life… and the entire glowing blackish purple light seemed to denote the descent of hell on earth. The shimmering image of the Hell’s Angel Heavenly Skill Image seemed to grow thicker and more solid; at the same time Zhou Weiqing could sense his Heavenly Energy draining out of him at a shockingly rapid rate. The Hell’s Angel Skill was one that could be continually maintained, and would move along with Zhou Weiqing as he moved. That was to say, if Zhou Weiqing stepped forward, the Skill and its radius would move along with him. Of course, that was at the premise that he had sufficient Heavenly Energy to maintain it.
Nether State - When he activates the ‘Nether State’, he would enter a state of being totally immune to any physical attacks for the next three seconds.
Some passages of him using the nether state to save himself.
The black clad assassin was just too fast. Just as Zhou Weiqing had stalled for an instant, a cold chilly sensation gushed through him as the point of the rapier pierced right through his back and out his chest.
The black rapier had struck so craftily, piercing right through the tiny gap of Zhou Weiqing’s currently incomplete ‘Hate Ground no Handle’ Legendary Set, from his upper back neck area all the way to the front of his chest. Although it did not pierce through the Consolidated Equipment at all, the terrifying frigid cold caused Zhou Weiqing’s heart to sink to the depths.
Luckily, the ‘Nether State’ was still in effect. With the physical immunity, once again the black rapier did not take his life and destroy his body. However, the terrifying darkness energy within the rapier still burst forth, raging crazily within him.
The ‘Nether State’ was truly worthy of the Heavenly God Tier Skill that it was. Even under such a supreme disadvantageous situation, it still managed to barely protect Zhou Weiqing. It brought a total physical immunity, and though energy attacks were not immune, they would still have to erode the Nether State’s energy before actually being able to harm Zhou Weiqing. As such, Zhou Weiqing could sense that the time of the ‘Nether State’ lasting was rapidly reaching its end before its normal time. From the looks of things, it would no longer be able to save him for much longer.
As for the Skill that dissipated the Defense Skills on Lin TianAo, it was another powerful but niche support skills. This was the Lightning Attribute Skill, the Heavenly Lightning Shock.
In most people’s eyes, the Heavenly Lightning Shock was another niche skill that was usually deemed useless despite its power. It did not have any attacking or damaging capabilities, and it had only one use – to dissipate skills. It only worked on Stored Skills, and also was similar to the Absolute Delay that it would never ‘level up’. That meant it would always last for 3 seconds no matter what cultivation level he was. Of course, at the same time, it was also another Absolute effect, and would definitely dissipate any Skill.
As long as any Jewel Master was hit by the Heavenly Lightning Shock, any Skills they were in the midst of using, or was currently affecting them, would immediately be dissipated.
There were two reasons why many Jewel Masters thought this skill to be niche and somewhat useless. First of all, it was only activated on touching the opponent’s body. The second was that although it could interrupt skills, it would not affect any that had already left the body. For example, if someone used a Fireball Skill which was already in mid air, and the Heavenly Lightning Shock was used on him, the Fireball would not dissipate. Furthermore, there was no other control provided by the Skill. Since Lightning Attribute Jewel Masters were very rare in the first place, and they were mostly known for their powerful damaging attacks, many would not choose this niche skill, and it was only rated at four stars. After all, every Jewel Master had a very limited amount of Skills, and who would pick a Skill that could only be useful in rare circumstances? Only someone like Zhou Weiqing, who had more than four times the usual skills most Jewel Masters had, could afford to do so.
In truth, just like the Spatial Shackles, although the Heavenly Lightning Shock was niche, when used in the right circumstance, it could have an amazing god-like effect. This was just a perfect example – having it dissipate all three of Lin TianAo’s defensive skills, including the Rock Armour, right at the perfect timing. Although the Shield was able to weaken half of most support skills, it was not able to weaken this Absolute Skill! With the help of the Socket of the Overlord Bow, Zhou Weiqing was able to make use of it without being in close combat.
With these two skills used in conjunction on Lin TianAo, although it wasn’t able to affect his shield, it did greatly lower the personal defense of his body.
This arrow was what Zhou Weiqing had planned to use to turn the tides, how could it be that simple? With a huge explosion, uncountable bolts of purple blue lightning spread forth in the sky. Naturally, Jiang Fei was protected by her shield of black balls, and did not sustain any damage. With Zhou Weiqing’s Heavenly Energy, even with the explosive effect of the Overlord Bow, it could not hurt her. However, that was not the only Skill that Zhou Weiqing had socketed, nor was it only targeted at her.
Thousand Lightning Strikes. Currently, Zhou Weiqing’s only AOE attack skill. As it exploded forth, its huge area of effect meant that Crow would actually be in the attack. However, due to the fact that it descended from the sky, it ended up behind the ‘enemy lines’. In front of Jiang Fei and Wu Zhengyang was his Shimmering Light Shield, which ended up blocking the bolts spreading out in that direction, actually protecting Crow from it! As such, the only unfortunate recipient of the entire skill was Wu Zhengyang.
The offensive power of the Thousand Lightning Strikes was not great, especially since it was an AOE type skill. However, being struck by nearly the full impact of it, and so unexpectedly, Wu Zhengyang was still dealt a huge blow, causing his entire body to go numb, his hair standing, and a burnt smell emitting from his body.
Lighting Suffering - On striking an enemy, it would instantly release a number of extremely powerful lightning bolts, striking through the enemy, causing much damage and numbness at the same time. Of course, the number of Jewels the user had would determine the number of bolts.
"The ‘Fetters of Wind’, this was Zhou Weiqing’s first Wind Attribute Skill, and at the basic first jewel stage, it was able to lock onto a target within 50 yards instantly, as long as the target’s Heavenly Energy did not surpass him by more than five levels, he would be bound for three seconds. If the targets’ cultivation was even lower than his, he would be bound for an additional second for every level of Heavenly Energy he was lower than Zhou Weiqing."
Tornado Strike - Its main effect is to double one’s speed in that instant, but its secondary effect is to double the strength of his next attack.
Silver Emperor's Wing Slash - Extremely strong destructive capabilities. Coupled with Spatial Rend to become the Dual Attribute Skill Silver Emperor Spatial Rend, which is nigh invincible. Destructive capability depends on cultivation level.
A passage of what silver emperor wing slash does when it enters the body.
The silver green light was none other than Silver Emperor Wing Slash, which he had Tempered for the last three days.
Having this terrifying Silver Emperor Wing Slash enter her body, how could there be any possible good outcome for her? Qing Qian’s body froze in place, blood pouring out from all her orifices as her internal organs were totally destroyed… as the life fled from her.
Some passages of him using silver emperor wing slash on his arms as a weapon.
Since he had chosen to reveal his Wind Attribute, he would need to act like a proper Wind Attribute Heavenly Jewel Master. Facing Shen Yi’s attack, Zhou Weiqing suddenly retreated in a burst of speed; with the boost of the Wind Attribute, his speed was as fast as Shen Yi’s. At the same time, two green lights lit up around his arms, and they formed an indistinct-looking, sharp green blade of light along each arm.
Shen Yi’s first attack did not successfully strike Zhou Weiqing, but that was not the end of her attack. With a jerk of her hands, the two balls of fire left her hands and flew towards Zhou Weiqing, right at the same time as the green light consolidated into the blades.
Facing these two orange-red fireballs that were clearly far beyond the ordinary low rated Fireball Skill, Zhou Weiqing remained calm. A simple wave of his arms in midair, and the two green blades of light crisscrossed. A strange sight happened next, as the two fireballs seemed to split apart like tomatoes, sliced neatly into four, dissipating into the air.
“What Skill is that?!” Seeing her powerful fireballs destroyed so easily, Shen Yi was left stunned.
She had never seen any Wind Attribute Skills do such a thing, as the usual effect of Wind against Fire would be an explosion, not such a cutting effect. Even for Spatial Attribute Skills, it was rare to have such a cutting effect.
In truth, she could not be blamed for being so surprised and shocked. After all, the Skill that Zhou Weiqing had used was the Silver Emperor Wing Slash that he had Stored a long time ago from the first Silver Emperor he met; with his two arms like wings, it was a Ten Star Rated powerful Wind Attribute Skills. Normally, a Heavenly Jewel Master who had such a Skill would be at least at the Upper Level Zong Stage, how could Shen Yi have possibly seen such a thing.
Silver Emperor Lightning Pierce - Able to warp into a silver point, instantly piercing through anything. At the same time, moving at 300% speed. This is a skill that can be used for both offense and defense, and the Silver Emperor uses it for both attacking and fleeing.
Spatial shuttle - very similar to the Blink Skill he had, but not only is the range far greater, it also has greater flexibility in movement, and more importantly, it could bring someone along as well.
Here are some passages of him using the spatial shuttle skill.
As soon as her words came out, Dreamwake once more charged forwards. This time, she was even faster! She appeared before Zhou Weiqing with a flicker, then suddenly vanished before Zhou Weiqing even had the chance to lift up his two Dual Legendary Hammers.
The Spatial Attribute was absolutely necessary for a God Tier Consolidating Equipment Master. Dreamwake naturally had access to techniques like Spatial Shuttle.
Zhou Weiqing didn’t dare to hesitate at all. As soon as Dreamwake vanished before him, he himself used Spatial Shuttle as well. Two streaks of silver light flashed past each other in quick succession, with Dreamwake’s dragon-claw attack sweeping through Zhou Weiqing’s previous position just a moment after he vanished, tearing through the shadowy blur left behind by his Spatial Shuttle.
As soon as Zhou Weiqing reappeared, he lifted up his dual hammers and spun them around himself. This decision was the correct one, because as soon as he appeared Dreamwake had already moved right next to him. She didn’t really have many options for dealing with the overwhelmingly superior power of the Dual Legendary Hammers, and so she bent over backwards to dodge like a reverse bow. It looked as though she didn’t have any bones in her body! As she did this, she delivered a flying kick with her right foot. This kick came in right within the empty space between the two hammers and was aimed at Zhou Weiqing’s chest.
A thunderous explosion rang out, followed by Zhou Weiqing staggering three steps backwards. Dreamwake wasn’t any better off, as she was sent flying backwards as well.
Blink - Allows him to teleport instantly and far distances away.
Blink, Zhou Weiqing’s first Spatial Attribute Skill, and even being at the most basic first jewel stage, Blink still allowed him to instantaneously teleport anywhere within a three meters diameter instantaneously. It seemed very simple, but this skill was not the Top Support Skill for the first Three Jewels for nothing, and was indeed a formidable skill that could save his life many times over. Indeed, without this skill, he would have lost earlier.
Here is another passage showing that with his current cultivation he can blink far distances.
After leaving Duan Tianlang's room, Zhou Weiqing immediately left town. With his current cultivation base, the limitation of distance to Blink was pretty much nullified, he could reach anywhere immediately with just a thought about his destination, as long as his destination was within several thousand meters in displacement.
Here is a passage showing he can use a group blink.
"Trying to run away?" Zhou Weiqing smirked as the corner of his lips curled upwards. Next, the silver light shot towards Zhou Weiqing and the women, enveloping them in the glow. As the glow flickered, they were teleported elsewhere. It was a group Blink. The point was that even after the Blink was complete, the old tree that was made from Life Energy still remained in sight.
Spatial Rend - The most famous skill of the Silver Emperor, its impressive manipulation of Spatial Energy. Instantly splits apart and distorts the spatial dimension; at close range, it is able to break invisibility or stealth skills, as well as Blink skills. At the same time, it also has an extremely strong slicing power. When the Spatial Rend has been used, it also distorts space, which can cause enemies’ long ranged attacks to miss their targets. The Spatial Rend’s range, area of effect and length of time depends on cultivation level. Due to his current cultivation it is 12 chi long and can last 12 seconds.
In a fight between Jewel Masters, strength was not the only deciding factor. Having felt Zhou Weiqing’s strength to be way above his, Zang Lang finally burst forth with his full power.
The fireball skill was only of a two Star Rating, and was one of the most common skills for a first Jewel amongst Fire Attribute Elemental and Heavenly Jewel Masters. However, one could ever underestimate any skill, especially when used by a Heavenly Jewel Master. Such a fireball, when used by Zang Lang, was like heaven and earth when compared to the one that Difuya had used on Zhou Weiqing in the Stars Forest, with a much greater power indeed.
To everyone’s shock, Zhou Weiqing stood there without moving an inch, his mouth set in scornful look. As the five fireballs were about to strike him, his left hand swept forward.
A strange, profound arc appeared from Zhou Weiqing’s left hand, and a loud, ear-piercing tearing sound sounded out as a 3 chi long black scar appeared in the air before Zhou Weiqing, following his hand’s movement. It was as if in that very instance, the air had been torn apart, warping the atmosphere around the area in a several yard radius.
A strong suction force seemed to be suddenly released by the strange black tear in the air, and the five fireballs which had been rushing towards Zhou Weiqing suddenly turned around, vanishing deep into the black crack.
That… what was that skill?! To the commoner students all around, none of them had even heard of such a skill, let alone seen it before. Everyone stared at it in shock, their jaws dropping to the ground.
The one with the strongest feeling was Zang Lang himself; at that moment, he had been charging forward, and was right behind the five fireballs. However, when the air had twisted, the black line that had formed and the sudden suction force had caused him to stop, having to circulate all his Heavenly Energy just to stop himself from being sucked into it.
Indeed, what Zhou Weiqing had used was the Spatial Skill which he had Stored from the Silver Emperor – the Spatial Rend! The effect of the Spatial Rend was highly dependant on the cultivation level of the user. If Zhou Weiqing only had a single set of Jewels, it would have been a 1 chi long tear in the air, lasting for only a second; now that he had three sets of Jewels, it was a 3 chi long tear lasting 3 seconds! This was not just simply being three times stronger, as its effect and usage was multiplied several-fold.
Spatial collapse - upgraded version of spatial rend using saint energy
“Eh?” Shangguan Tianyue had a stunned look in his eyes. He quickly sensed his entire body turning slow and sluggish.
Zhou Weiqing’s left hand suddenly struck out as well. The air behind him was broken apart, with silver light flashing and then disappearing. Boom! The extremely dense longspear of ice transformed into countless specks of light, then disappeared. This was what happened when Saint Energy was used to activate the upgraded version of Spatial Rend, Spatial Collapse.
Here is another passage of him using spatial collapse while using his hammers.
Seeing that Zhou Weiqing dodged his attack once again, his eyes lit up suddenly. He slashed his sword again. However, this time the black sword glow did not distort anymore as he rushed towards Zhou Weiqing with an enormous Light Blade.
"Eh?" Zhou Weiqing exclaimed in surprise. He held up his dual hammers and screamed, "Open."
As he lifted up his hammers, reddish gold glow covered the Dual God Strength Hammers.
As a loud thud sounded out, the space a few hundred of meters away collapsed. The man in black's body was blown away with the help of the intense shock force. Soon after, circles of distorted halos appeared behind him suddenly. The immense push allowed his body to be thrown back into the sky like an arrow and he became a small, black dot instantly.
Spatial Shackles - The target would be trapped in a light wrapping which contained a spatial dimension. The target would not be able to effect the outside world, but neither could Zhou Weiqing attack the target; until the Spatial Shackles were broken.
“Shackles!” Zhou Weiqing cried out loud, his left hand pointing forth. Instantly, a mass of silver light in the shape of a ball burst forth from his hand, forming a silver cover of light, which enveloped Ming Hua. Instantly, Ming Hua’s incessant attacks were brought to a screeching halt, and Zhou Weiqing managed to seize the opportunity and retreat.
Spatial Shackles – Zhou Weiqing’s third Spatial Skill. As Tang Xian had adviced him previously, he specifically looked for another control type skill to Skill Store for his third Jewel, and the Spatial Shackles was at least of an 8 Star Rating or more.
The time which the Spatial Shackles lasted was even longer than his Fetters of Wind and Touch of Darkness! At the 3-Jeweled level of power, the Spatial Shackles lasted almost eight seconds; of course this was on a target of similar power as him, and provided the target did not struggle and attack it.
In this eight seconds, the target would be trapped in a light wrapping which contained a spatial dimension. The target would not be able to effect the outside world, but neither could Zhou Weiqing attack the target; until the Spatial Shackles were broken. As such, although this Skill had an extremely powerful control factor, it lacked the ability to complement attacks. Of course, it couldn’t be said to be useless or weak either, its greatest usage was to interrupt enemies. Furthermore, there were other uses for it as well, and not just on enemies. In certain critical times, this could even be used to save a friend or companion. As such, this was considered one of the better Spatial Skills as well.
Other Info Immortal deity technique - this is his cultivation method it allows him to constantly draw in energy and make him strong. Another ability is the immortal deity shield it automatically blocks attacks on his body but uses up his energy.
A passage when he firsts unlocks the immortal deity shield
When the Death Acupuncture Points on the limbs are broken through, your five Acupuncture Points will be linked to the world, and you can communicate with the essence of heaven and earth, evolving your body. Once your body is remade, the five energy whirlpools will spread throughout your body and form a natural shield, protecting you from external forces, hidden under your skin. The name of the shield is the ‘Immortal Deity Shield’.
When I created this Technique, it was only after I broke through the fifth Death Acupuncture Point when I found out this amazing benefit. With this in mind, I conjectured that every portion of the Immortal Deity Technique will bring an additional evolving. If I am successful in breaking through to the second portion, I will also record it down. If not, may you, my successor, try it yourself.
The profound meaning of the Immortal Deity Technique is in its unceasing improvement. Even if you are not focusing on cultivation, the energy whirlpools will continue drawing in the energy from the atmosphere, as such, once you have started learning the Immortal Deity Technique, the only option is to continue breaking through the Death Acupuncture Points.
There is no necessity in controlling the Immortal Deity Shield, as it will automatically protect its user.
A passage when he first got the deity shield and tested it and found out some limitations of it.
After venting his anger and fear in a bout of complaint, Zhou Weiqing decided to test out the Immortal Deity Shield’s strength. He took up an arrow and carefully stabbed it down towards his arm. He didn’t use a lot of strength at once, instead slowly increasing the amount of power. A miraculous sight appeared before him. At first, there wasn’t an obvious feeling, but as he exerted more strength, he soon realised that the five energy whirlpools at his Death Acupuncture Points suddenly increased their speed, causing a layer of airflow to seemingly form just above his skin, and the arrow in his hands seemed to slide to the side due to this layer of air, and he didn’t even feel a thing.
“Ehh, it does seem rather effective, although I wonder what’s the extent of its protective capabilities.” That night, he did not bother cultivating, and instead spent the whole night experimenting on the Immortal Deity Shield’s limits. After a night of testing, Zhou Weiqing found that its protective capabilities were indeed pretty strong, but it was inextricably linked to his Heavenly Energy. Basically, the stronger the attack it was blocking, the greater the drain on his Heavenly Energy, and there was also a certain limit on the attacks it was able to block, once it surpassed that threshold, the Immortal Deity Shield was only able to neutralize a portion of the damage, and this threshold was about a full third of his entire Heavenly Energy pool. Furthermore, he also found out that the Immortal Deity Shield would stop activating once his Heavenly Energy was drained to less than half its total amount.
Dragon Tiger Demon God Transformation - Increases his overall power, defense , regeneration ability etc. His second mode ‘Like Dragon Equivalent Tiger’ mode, all of Zhou Weiqing’s physical attributes are increased by a terrifying amount. In this state he is unable to use the vast majority of his techniques, but his physical prowess will rise to an utterly terrifying level.
Some passages explains some aspects of his dragon tiger transformation
When Shangguan Xue’er’s palm struck his chest, Zhou Weiqing’s entire body glowed in a purple light. If Shangguan Xue’er had been in a calmer state, she would have instantly sensed that her blow was scattered by the purple light, as if the strength behind the blow was separated to every inch of Zhou Weiqing’s body. As such, though it seemed like he had been savagely blown away by that palm strike, Zhou Weiqing was actually not injured at all.
The defensive capabilities of the Dragon race could be said to be top notch even amongst all Heavenly God Tier Heavenly Beasts, and they themselves were considered one of the strongest amongst all their peers. Furthermore, the Dragon-Tiger Transformation was not just the sole Dragon bloodline alone, but with the power of the Dark Demon God Tiger behind as well. With Shangguan Xue’er’s seven-Jeweled cultivation level, her palm strike wasn’t able to actually hurt Zhou Weiqing, even if he did not defend himself, and could only cause his chest to hurt.
Some passages about the solidified dragon spirit he was given by the dragon how it makes him practically immune to all fire.
Alas, due to a series of unforeseen circumstances and coincidences today, things had changed drastically. Zhou Weiqing had guessed correctly. The Gold Green Flames that Shen Bu had unleashed on him had been absorbed by the Solidified Dragon Spirit hidden right below Zhou Weiqing’s skin. Dragons were the forefathers of Fire, and no fire was greater than theirs. As soon as Zhou Weiqing had gotten the Solidified Dragon Spirit, he was already immune to almost all fire in the world.
To the Solidified Dragon Spirit, the Gold Green Flames were like a supplement, hence it was directly absorbed into Zhou Weiqing’s body. To be more accurate, it was directly absorbed by the Solidified Dragon Spirit.
Some passages about when Zhou used the dragon tiger transformation for the first time.
After much ‘testing’, Long Shiya’s surprise grew stronger. He discovered that Zhou Weiqing’s evolving this time had been truly thorough. It seemed like not just his two powerful bloodlines had been fused together, but the Immortal Deity Technique had somehow been integrated within as well.
When Zhou Weiqing’s was under attack, the first defensive effect that was produced was actually from his skin, becoming almost like tough armour, able to withstand any attack from six-Jeweled cultivation level and below, perhaps even higher. Tough and flexible indeed.
As the offensive power of the attacks grew stronger, up to the level beyond what Zhou Weiqing’s skin could withstand, his muscles and bones would well up with strength, all the way up to the surface of the skin, strengthening the defense. At the same time, his Immortal Deity Technique would automatically transfer Heavenly Energy to the surface of the skin, presenting in a layer of purple light, once again improving the defensive capabilities several fold. This was the profound secret that had emerged after the merging of the Immortal Deity Shield to his bloodlines.
It could be said that for the current Zhou Weiqing, even if one totally ignored his offensive capabilities, just considering his defensive capabilities alone, he was already at a terrifying level. More importantly, these defenses were automatically triggered, almost passive even, and he did not need to control or activate them with his own will. That was to say, he did not need to worry about being ambushed or caught off guard.
More importantly, even if he was not in the Dragon-Tiger Transformation, Zhou Weiqing’s own personal defense was already able to reach at least sixty to seventy percent of his full defense in that State.
Not only that; when he entered the Dragon-Tiger Transformation, Zhou Weiqing’s power could be said to go through a total change, an upheaval even. The introduction of the Solidified Dragon Spirit to all his powers not only brought Zhou Weiqing a full true immunity to fire, it also brought about an immunity to the Darkness Attribute. That was to say… as long as any Skills or attacks of these two Attributes landed on Zhou Weiqing, the only effect they would have would be the impact as well as pure Heavenly Energy, and none of the effects of the skills brought about by the Attributes. If the attack was of the Darkness or Fire Attribute, then it would most likely not even be of much harm to Zhou Weiqing at all. For example, if the effect of a particular Fire Attribute Skill was a high level scorching type one, then what would its use be on him at all.
In Long Shiya’s words, due to the fact that Zhou Weiqing did not have the Fire Attribute, the Solidified Dragon Spirit was unable to give him any powerful Skills. However, at the same time, when the Solidified Dragon Spirit had fully fused with Zhou Weiqing, all its benefits had been focused on his physical body instead. Not only was he no longer afraid of Fire, when he entered melee combat with an enemy, his attacks would be imbued with the Fire Attribute passively. Furthermore, when his hands warped into the dragon claws, the destructive power of them were no different from any real dragon claws, of course the difference in strength aside. Once he used his Yin Yang Giant Spirit Palms, the sheer terrifying offensive power was such that even Long Shiya would not be easily willing to take such a blow easily. It would not be a good feelings at all.
Six Ultimate Godly Light Formation - Able to mimic skills 12 stars and lower of his six attributes meaning he can unleash skills with no cooldown as long as he has energy. He can also control the skills and make them chase and dodge his opponent or his attacks.
Here are some more passages of Zhou using the six ultimate godly light formation how he is able to insta cast skills.
By now, Dreamwake had a thorough understanding of the tremendous power the Six Ultimate Godly Light Formation possessed. As her kick had landed against Zhou Weiqing’s chest, dozens of Lightning Pearls had gathered across his chest. Her kick had landed atop those Lightning Pearls, causing a tremendous explosion which had blasted her and Zhou Weiqing apart. Her kick, which should have guaranteed her victory, was forced to retract as well.
The way in which the Six Ultimate Godly Light Formation allowed for techniques to be instantly cast could be described as ‘freakishly powerful’, especially given how little Heavenly Energy it used.
The Flying Lightning God technique was Zhou Weiqing’s favorite technique. As soon as the two had been blasted apart, Zhou Weiqing released a second instant-cast technique. Once again it was the Flying Lightning God, but this time the Lightning Pearls were transformed into bolts of lightning. Over a hundred bolts of lightning appeared simultaneously, shooting straight at Dreamwake.
The flashing lightning was simply too fast, and they had all been insta-cast. There was no way to dodge them at all! With no other options available, Dreamwake summoned a buckler of black light over her head. A series of explosions could be heard as all of the lightning bolts slammed into the black shield of light and then disappeared. However, this ensured that Dreamwake was unable to press the attack against Zhou Weiqing.
Some passages of Zhou using the manipulation art to make wind blades and wind shield to fight an opponent.
An earsplitting sound of chafing rang out. A Wind Blade was just a one-Star rated Skill, and even if it were compressed, it was normally at most two-Star. The Rock Armour that Lei Zi had summoned to protect himself was much higher Rated, and under normal circumstances, a Wind Blade could never break its defense.
However, along with the earsplitting sound, Lei Zi felt a sudden cold on his chest, and he was shocked to see that the Rock Armour at his chest was totally unable to block the swift slash of the Wind Blade, which had clearly been boosted severely by the grey whirlpool.
It was too late to dodge, and at this moment, Lei Zi’s ferocious nature showed itself. He howled angrily into the air, ignoring his own chest and the attack on it, instead lifting his hands into the sky. Instantly, a thick yellow light burst forth, and dozens of massive rocks consolidated in midair, smashing down savagely onto Zhou Weiqing.
Rock shower. One of the most useful and pragmatic of the Earth Attribute offensive Skills, an area of effect attack to boot. With Lei Zi’s six-Jeweled cultivation level, despite that attack being summoned hastily and without preparation, its power was not to be underestimated.
Alas, just as he unleashed the Skill, an icy cold sensation invaded his entire body, as if he had been plunged into ice, and the momentum of his forward charge plummeted drastically. When he lowered his head to look, he was surprised to see that without knowing when, the blue-purple ball of light that had shot off in another direction earlier had actually somehow reached the front of his chest, entering the Rock Armour through the cut the Wind Blade had opened.
*BANG* The blue-purple light exploded, causing Lei Zi to be sent flying up into the air. There was not much pain, just a strong numbing sensation, as well as an icy cold Demonic Attribute invading his body, causing his entire body to be in a paralyzed state momentarily.
Such powerful control! That was the only thought in Lei Zi’s mind currently. For such a direct combat specialist Heavenly Jewel Master like himself, it was not easy to be controlled by just a few low rated Skills, yet Zhou Weiqing had managed to do so.
However, Lei Zi did not think that this would mean his loss. His Rock Shower Skill had already been put into action, and that was the key for him to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Even if Zhou Weiqing could deal with it, it would not be easy for him to do so while controlling so many Skills. As long as it gave him enough time to force out the Demonic Attribute Heavenly Energy and wait out the numbing effect of the Control Skill, he would still have a chance of victory.
Alas for Lei Zi, still in midair where he had been sent from the explosion, his next sight was a miraculous one. His Rock Shower Skill had just sent over thirty, almost forty falling rocks down, but as they flew to about five yards from Zhou Weiqing, they all halted in midair.
The reason was simple. Under each and every single rock, a small Wind Shield appeared.
In normal circumstances, it was impossible for a Wind Shield to block the Rock Shower. After all, the Rock Shower was Five-Star rated, a powerful Earth Attribute offense Skill. However, if it was several dozen Wind Shields, each blocking a rock with perfect timing? That was a major difference. Not only were the falling rocks stopped from falling by the Wind Shields, they slowly wrapped around the Rocks and gently set them onto the ground, without even making a sound.
The Wind Shields that Zhou Weiqing had unleashed were merely two-Star Rated Skills. After Long Shiya’s teaching, he truly understood that it was not that low Star Rated Skills were useless. Although their power might be small, they also did not have much drain on Heavenly Energy. If one was able to make use of these lower rated Skills to just accomplish a task, what was the point of using a more powerful Skill? That would just be a waste of extra Heavenly Energy!
After Zhou Weiqing had trained for the past two months on the Six Ultimate Skill Manipulation Arts, even the strict Long Shiya had finally said that he had some initial success in it, and was through the gates of the first level of the Skill. Currently, as he used it in actual combat, it seemed to come so easily to him. All of the Skills that he had used thus far were not Stored Skills, but just skillful manipulation of Heavenly Energy to consolidate them.
The various Rocks disappeared soon after they landed on the ground, after all they were part of a Skill formed by Heavenly Energy. At the same time, Lei Zi fell hard on the ground with a muffled grunt. In the end, Zhou Weiqing did not hit him with the rest of the six Skills. Although those Skills might not be very powerful by itself, he did not plan on actually hurting Lei Zi, just breaking all of his attacks and knocking him down.
Saint creation energy - Is one step lower than genesis energy the energy presides over creation and is superior to all attributes even destruction energy.
Here are some passages about saint energy and the astral core Zhou has.
The Saint Energy held the Power of Creation. This was not as simple as humans creating something, but the greatest Power of Creation in the world. The entire world was constructed by this most purest and original of energies, and the stars in the skies were also formed from this.
What Zhou Weiqing had said was indeed true. Every Heavenly Core Nucleus had the potential to become a star in the skies, however this required a incomparably long process of evolution and development. These Heavenly King and Heavenly Emperors’ Heavenly Core Nucleus were naturally not real stars, but they held the same attributes and auras as stars.
Zhou Weiqing’s Astral Saint Core Nucleus was consolidated and formed from this core origin Saint Energy. The words Astral Core was not named for nothing. A Heavenly Core Nucleus was only the embryonic form of a star, but his Astral Core Nucleus was truly the core of the stars. Any true star had its own astral core!
As such, Zhou Weiqing’s Astral Core Nucleus was at a far higher level than even any Heavenly God’s Heavenly Core Nucleus.
Of course, with his current cultivation, he was far from being able to wield the full power of the Astral Saint Core Nucleus. Limited by his own cultivation, the Astral Saint Core Nucleus would be limited in terms of its evolving for now.
However, that would not stop him from borrowing the power of the Astral Saint Core Nucleus. What he had just done earlier was to use his Astral Saint Core Nucleus to activate the astral power of the stars in the skies, causing echo and resonance to feedback back into itself. After that, when he released the energy of the six Heavenly Kings and one Heavenly Emperor Heavenly Core Nucleus, it was tantamount to sending this purest Astral energies into the skies, before gaining the resonant Astral power in return.
Perhaps the total power of this Astral power was far below that of the seven Heavenly Core Nucleus, but it was the purest Astral power without any impurities, able to be used directly and infused into his Astral Saint Core Nucleus. Added on to the fact that Zhou Weiqing had already Devoured such a large amount of Heavenly Energy just now, the two factors had combined to push him from the Mid Level Heavenly King stage to the High Level Heavenly King Stage. If the Devour Skill could be considered the top method of increasing one’s cultivation in the human realm, then this Resonance Method of the Astral powers could be considered the top method in the realm of gods, one that defied the heavens!
When Zhou Weiqing had first consolidated his Astral Saint Core Nucleus, he had gained some of this understand. However, at that time it had not been too deep and profound. However, after this entire process, he was slowly beginning to grasp the true meaning and understand of the Astral powers and the Resonance method.
The final ending of the Heavenly Emperor Meng Gui could be said to be fully under Zhou Weiqing’s calculations. With the Possession of the Demon God, Zhou Weiqing had sealed Meng Gui’s senses towards the outside world. At that time, Long Shiya could actually clearly sense the atmospheric energies all around having a strange reverberation.
Zhou Weiqing had continued speaking with Meng Gui, and that was all to delay for time. For the current him to use the Astral powers, it actually required a rather long build up time. It was thus extremely difficult to use while in actual combat. Originally, when he had consolidated the tenth set of Heavenly Jewels, his tenth Elemental Jewel was already filled with Astral powers. In this case, it was similar to the seventh Jewel, unable to Store any other Skills. However, it was the source of him being able to activate the Astral Resonance Method.
The final result had proved that Zhou Weiqing had succeeded. When the Astral powers were really activated by him, let alone the already injured Meng Gui; in such a situation, an uninjured Heavenly Emperor would not be able to withstand the power of the Astral powers, and even a Heavenly God might have to escape instead of taking it head on. The greatest weakness of the Astral power was its extremely long build up time. Of course, that was also because of Zhou Weiqing’s current cultivation, and at least currently it wasn’t pragmatic in function.
Here are some passages explains some of the benefits of saint energy.
It had no idea that it was Saint Energy, which transcended all other Attributes. Saint Energy’s might was capable of assimilating any other Attribute. After Zhou Weiqing’s cultivation broke through to the Heavenly Dao Energy level, his Saint Energy’s effectiveness was finally put on true display. Zhou Weiqing was merely in the ocean, which was filled with Water Attribute energies. Even if Zhou Weiqing was within the Tenebrous Sealing Formation, he still would’ve been able to convert the Tenebrous Attribute energies and make use of it himself. This was what made Saint Energy so marvelous. It was suitable for any battlefield, and it allowed him to unleash 100% of his power no matter where he was.
Here are some other passages explains more benefits due to the saint energy when he formed his astral saint core nucleus.
His will was infused into the Astral Saint Core Nucleus in front of his chest, and a strange pulling force emanated from his body. He seemed to have become a true star, causing the energies of the sea to instantly transform into his subordinates. It was the powerful atmospheric energies of the sea itself which was propelling them forwards. Otherwise, how could they be going this fast?
In addition, thanks to the influence of Zhou Weiqing’s Astral Saint Core Nucleus, all sea creatures within a thousand kilometers fled in terror. Thus, nothing would impede their path.
Without question, the Astral Saint Core Nucleus was what had guided Zhou Weiqing to become a Heavenly King. He himself wasn’t sure just how strong he was after having condensed this Astral Saint Core Nucleus, but what he was seeing had proven a few things.
First, after gaining the Astral Saint Core Nucleus, he was able to truly employ Heavenly Dao Energy to control atmospheric energies. However, he was different from other Heavenly Kings. Any Heavenly Jewel Master, be it Heavenly Kings, Heavenly Emperors, or even Heavenly Gods, had their own domains which they were best suited for. These domains were determined by their Attribute.
Simply put, a Heavenly Jewel Master who had the Fire Elemental Jewel would definitely be able to summon the most atmospheric energies if he was in a place like the mouth of a volcano. The sea would naturally be most advantageous to Water Attribute Heavenly Jewel Masters, which was why Terror Sea Dragons were so powerful in the ocean.
Zhou Weiqing was different. He didn’t have the Water Attribute, but when he unleashed the aura from his Astral Saint Core Nucleus, he had an even greater control over the ocean than a Heavenly King who DID have the Water Attribute.
This essentially meant that his Astral Saint Core Nucleus would allow him to summon atmospheric energies in any situation, allowing him to use it as though he had that affinity. In other words, he could use atmospheric energies as he pleased. He would always be on ‘friendly terrain’, no matter where he fought.
What was even more important, however, was that the amount of atmospheric energies Zhou Weiqing was able to summon was somewhere between ten times to a hundred times greater than what an ordinary Heavenly King could use. As for exactly how much, he wasn’t sure yet. Most terrifying of all was the fact that the atmospheric energies could actually be converted into Saint Energy in the outside world and used to cast techniques. He no longer had to first compress it and convert it within his body.
This was Saint Energy, true Saint Energy. After gaining the Astral Saint Core Nucleus, Zhou Weiqing’s power had risen to an unprecedented level. Forget about Heavenly Kings, even ordinary Heavenly Emperors wouldn’t necessarily be a match for him.
Heavenly skill images - Are the images of creatures the skills belong to for example the hells angel skill and Zhou being able to use saint creation energy is able to bring these images to life so that they can fight along side him.
Here are some passages of Zhou using the hells angel skill image to fight a terror sea dragon.
“Gwaaaaaawr!” The Terror Sea Dragon in front of Zhou Weiqing could hold back no longer. If it didn’t go help out, its brother was going to perish within that Tenebrous Sealing Formation. After that happened, what if the humans all turned to focus on it? What could it do?
The enormous, thousand-meter tidal wave swept forwards once more, spinning through the air to transform into an enormous image of a Terror Sea Dragon which was completely formed by seawater. It reached out, claws bared, to attack Zhou Weiqing and the Hell’s Angel which he had revived.
This attack was one of the most powerful techniques the Terror Sea Dragon was capable of it. This ‘dragon’ it had created wasn’t simply made out of ocean water; rather, it was completely comprised of pure Water Attribute energies. Only Heavenly Gods were capable of creating such enormous bodies out of energy. Zhou Weiqing’s face instantly grew ugly to behold. Unfortunately, he had no other options; the Terror Sea Dragon had already launched the attack.
The Hell’s Angel shot forwards like a black streak of light, moving a thousand meters past Zhou Weiqing in an instant. It pointed down with its two hands, causing the black stormclouds to instantly press downwards from the skies. Dense Tenebrous Attribute energies exploded forth as a series of enormous Tenebrous balls of light that were tens of meters in diameter began to fall out of the skies like rainwater towards the head of the enormous water dragon.
Enormous explosions rang out. Every single enormous dark-violet globe of light kicked up an enormous spray of water as it exploded across the giant water dragon’s body, corroding and destroying small parts of it. Unfortunately, the water dragon was simply far too vast. Even though many balls of violet-black light were smashing against it, they remained unable to damage its true body.
It reached the Hell’s Angel in the blink of an eye… and it was at this moment that the Hell’s Angel which Zhou Weiqing had summoned revealed its true, terrifying power.
Its enormous airborne body suddenly began to glow as dense, violet-black demonic clouds began to rise up and swirl around it. It emanated no sounds, but its body suddenly swelled up in size, transforming to become a black globe that was hundreds of meters in diameter which smashed directly against the water dragon.
Chiiii! An ear-piercing screech rang out, causing Zhou Weiqing to grow dizzy. He could clearly see how the distant water dragon caused that terrifying dark-violet energy to melt away as though it had never been. The Hell’s Angel had used its own body and life to block this attack for Zhou Weiqing.
Here is a passage where he creates a heavenly skill imagine of the silver emperor to fight for him.
The Heavenly Skill Image of the Silver Emperor behind Zhou Weiqing’s back slowly drifted to the front, and just like that it began to merge with the green-silver ball of light in front of him. This merging caused the silver light around Zhou Weiqing’s hand to brighten drastically, warping in an even stranger change.
As soon as his hands grasped together, the green-silver ball of light seemed to come to life. With violent reverberations, Zhou Weiqing’s entire body erupted with a powerful green and silver light. However, since he was so high up in the sky, no one else could see that his eyes had turned a full silver-white.
Zhou Weiqing’s arms shook abruptly, and his hands slowly spread apart again. A tiny bird, fully silver in colour, appeared before him.
“Silver Emperor?!” Even with Shangguan Longyin’s status and power, when he saw what Zhou Weiqing had done, he couldn’t help but exclaim out loud, unable to restrain himself.
What Zhou Weiqing had done had toppled everything he thought he knew. He… he had actually used his own Heavenly Energy to coalesce a Silver Emperor! The scariest thing was… this Silver Emperor was clearly not just an image. As soon as it appeared, with Shangguan Longyin’s powerful senses, he could clearly sense a powerful life force from that Silver Emperor, far stronger than the Destruction Fire Phoenix.
If he had to point out a difference between this energy-formed Silver Emperor and an actual Silver Emperor Heavenly Beast, it would be the colour of the eyes.
As a Heavenly King stage Heavenly Beast, the Silver Emperor had red eyes. However, for this Silver Emperor that Zhou Weiqing had formed, its eyes were a silver-white. Even so, as compared to an actual Silver Emperor, this energy-formed bird seemed to have a divine aura about it, as if it were above
“Go.” Zhou Weiqing said softly, pointing his right hand downwards. The Silver Emperor before him cried out in a clear, bright cry, streaking down like a bolt of silver lightning towards the Destruction Fire Phoenix that was larger than it several dozen times over.
Even Shangguan Longyin could not tell what Zhou Weiqing had unleashed, let alone the others. In truth, Zhou Weiqing and Shen Little Demon’s battle had not started for a long time, but anyone could tell that this was one of the most exciting battles for the current Heavenly Jewel Tournament, at least up until now. Both sides had unleashed Skills that were far above any ordinary Stored Skills, and the power that they displayed was definitely far beyond the six or seven Jewels they showed on the surface.
A faint smile caused Zhou Weiqing’s mouth to form a wicked smirk.
His entire plan had been to force Shen Little Demon to use her Destruction Attribute. Otherwise, how could he learn more about the profound secrets behind the Destruction Attribute?
Light and Fire… could these two Attributes fused together form the Destruction Attribute? No matter what, Zhou Weiqing could never believe that. Even if they were fused together, these two Attributes would be pure and upright, how could it be like the Destructive Attribute?
What was the Silver Emperor’s strongest Skill? Without a question, it was the Dual Attribute Skill Silver Emperor Spatial Rend, a fusion Skill of the Silver Emperor Wing Slash and the Spatial Rend. Currently, the Silver Emperor swooping down was exactly unleashing that very Skill, forming a piercing green silver light that collided instantly to the Destruction Fire Phoenix.
*Hisss Laaa* A strange sound rang out, as if a red hot soldering iron had a bucket of ice water poured on it.
In mid air, the light dimmed abruptly, as if the sun’s light was being suppressed.
They could clearly see a silver light fly into the head of the blood red Destruction Fire Phoenix, charging right down. Wherever it reached, it started breaking apart the entire body of the Destruction Fire Phoenix, and the green-silver body also began to shrink slowly as it charged down lower.
There was no violent explosions, but the terrifying energy reverberations in the skies could be clearly sensed by any Jewel Masters. Many watchers were secretly feeling lucky that this clash was in the skies; if it were on ground level, who knows what would have happened.
Creation. Once again, Zhou Weiqing had used the Saint Energy’s Creation, with the price of five drops of Saint Energy, to unleash the fusion Skill Silver Emperor Spatial Rend, coalescing the actual Silver Emperor.
Ever since he had done so with the Hell’s Angel, he had been experimenting in repeating the process with other Skills.
Without question, the power of this Skill was far above the original Silver Emperor Spatial Rend. With the power of the Saint Energy, the Destruction Attribute was being totally suppressed.
Zhou Weiqing had left a strand of his own spiritual energy in that coalesced Silver Emperor, allowing him to sense the energy reverberations and fluctuations of the Destruction Fire Phoenix, and any myriad changes it might have. He discovered that this Destruction Attribute energy had a crazy dissolving or disassembling effect on any other Attribute. Only the Saint Energy was able to resist this dissolving effect, but it wasn’t able to gain too much advantage either.
Of course, on the reverse side, the Destruction Attribute was also left helpless in front of the Saint Energy. It was destruction, and the Saint Energy was creation. Both sides were not even on the same level.
Just from visual effect alone, when that single wisp of green-silver light pierced and traveled right through the Destruction Fire Phoenix before disappearing stealthily, the Destruction Fire Phoenix looked as if it had been sliced into two from the middle before falling apart totally. Only Zhou Weiqing could clearly sense that in terms of pure strength of energy, his Silver Emperor was actually lesser than the Destruction Fire Phoenix. The reason he could destroy it was actually because of the core of the Destruction Fire Phoenix. Once the core of the Destruction Attribute had been destroyed, it had lost its soul, not allowing its full power to be unleashed. In that terrifying collision, both the powerful Skills disappeared just like that.
“No… that’s not possible!” Pale and ashen, Shen Little Demon was barely standing with sheer exhaustion on the stage, her eyes staring up in total disbelief and shock. No matter what, she could not believe that what had happened in front of her eyes was true. Due to her fatigue, she had not been able to see clearly what Zhou Weiqing had done, only seeing a flash of silver before he Destruction Fire Phoenix vanished.
Here are passages when he is first starting to cultivate saint energy and pours it into the hells angel skill.
By now, Zhou Weiqing realised that empowering Skills with the Heavenly Skill Image was vastly different from his ordinary Skills, and it was definitely not a wise idea for them to do so in their current state. However, it was too late at this point, he could no longer apply the brakes to it, and all they could do was to grit their teeth and hold on for the ride.
Right at that moment, the massive black figure above Zhou Weiqing’s head began to move. In a flash, he appeared right in front of Zhou Weiqing. Bloodshot eyes stared right at Zhou Weiqing, an aura of extreme cold caused the entire group of people on the Crescent City south wall to shudder uncontrollably. “My Lord, thank you for granting me life with your purest energy. I can serve you for three seconds.”
A thick, deep voice rang out in the depths of Zhou Weiqing’s soul, and it seemed like he was the only one who could hear it. The massive black youth had a face glinting with an evil light, and within the blood red orbs, he could sense an endless killing intent and frenzied presence.
It’s alive… alive?! Towards what was happening right before their eyes, no one could refrain from being shocked. Especially so for Zhou Weiqing himself… only he truly understood that he had actually given a Skill its own consciousness! This… this was something that the Saint Energy had done! However, what could this Hell’s Angel that was brought to live actually do? Zhou Weiqing did not know, but he felt a burning fire raging in his heart. He knew he had found another of the Saint Energy’s deepest profound secrets.
“My Lord, although your energy is pure, it is just too minimal. If you do not give an order, I will vanish soon.” The Hell’s Angel’s voice rang out once more, snapping Zhou Weiqing out of his reverie.
“Destroy. Please do all you can to destroy my enemies outside the city walls.” Zhou Weiqing did not hesitate any longer, quickly giving his order to the live Hell’s Angel. “As you wish.” The Hell’s Angel moved, his actions smooth and so natural, that unbelievably handsome face was filled with an icy cold killing intent. In a flash, he disappeared into the clouds above. The next instant, a shocking sight occurred.
The dark clouds that were swirling about them in a whirlpool fashion actually started moving crazily. In a blink of an eye, the dark clouds formed another, even larger, illusory figure of the Hell’s Angel.
The dark clouds were also changing colours, a dark purple light rising to encompass everything. Six giant wings spread out in the air… an oppressive pressure descended from the skies.
The wings behind the giant Hell’s Angel abruptly moved, and within moments a huge circle of light spread out in the skies, glowing a deep purple. From the giant ring of purple light, hundreds of large balls of purplish black air bubbles dropped down, each almost ten metres in diameter.
The generation of the air bubbles lasted only three seconds, and the illusory Hell’s Angel in the sky disappeared, warping back into the patch of dark clouds. However, in those three seconds alone, more than a hundred of the purplish black air bubbles had descended from the skies right onto the three Kalise Empire Regiments.
It was as if the purplish black air bubbles had eyes upon them, spreading out to land perfectly on important targets. One of the first to get into trouble was one of the large siege towers.
Below these siege towers were mainly wooden wheels. All of the materials had been brought by the three Kalise Regiments, and they had spent the last three days assembling them together. The siege towers were about twenty metres tall, almost at the same height as the Crescent City walls, able to hold thirty archers at the top, allowing them to face off against the archers atop the city walls.
Of course, for the Peerless Regiment soldiers, out of all the siege weapons, the most useless were actually these siege towers. However, due to the sheer height of the towers, they were naturally the first few to be ‘taken care’ off by the giant purplish black air bubbles.
*Swoosh* One of the air bubbles landed on the siege tower, causing a strange screeching sound. The closest one could describe it would be when cooking with a pot of hot oil, and pouring a ladle of cold water inside.
A dreadful scene played out next. The thirty archers and the over dozen shield bearers protecting them did not even have time to scream before they vanished along with the strange sound.
All that everyone could see was just the purplish black bubble descend from the sky, creeping over the entire siege tower and it just vanished like that. As the bubbles fell on the ground, it was like a splash of a wave smashing onto the ground, spreading at least several dozen metres before dissipating. However, in that entire large radius of the each bubble’s fall, every single living being was just like the men on the siege tower… vanishing into thin air.
Of the three Regiments, one was from the Bai Da Empire, and naturally they had their share of Jewel Masters and archers. Almost instantly, they reacted, and along with cries of surprise and shock, a rain of arrows and light beams of Skills flew upwards.
The arrows did not have any effect, disintegrating before they even reached the air bubbles. As for the various light bolts that the Jewel Masters released, it actually caused the situation to grow worse.
Those purplish black air bubbles actually broke upon contact from the skills… but what then? As they broke apart, a rain of purplish black liquid fell from the skies from each broken bubble instead!
What was a living hell on earth? For the first time, the Heavenly Bow side on the city walls witnessed it firsthand. Each of the purplish black air bubbles had a horrifying destructive power, and just looking at the scene before them made them almost stop breathing.
No enemy, no skill, nothing could hold back or withstand the purplish black air bubbles. Each of them burst when they landed or came into contact with something, spraying the light all about. Anything that came into contact with it, be it human or weapon, they were all assimilated.
Everywhere they struck, it wasn’t even necessary to clear up the battlefield. Even the earth… all that was left were giant holes in the ground.
Just watching from the vantage point of the city walls, it was truly a grand sight. Whenever an air bubble landed, it was like the entire ground became molten lava. All of the gathered siege weapons did not have a chance to come into play, and they were all disintegrated, including the fifty siege vehicles… not a single one was left. All that remained were countless of deep holes in the ground.
At the back, the Heavy Infantry and Heavy Cavalry soldiers were considered much luckier. At least, they were still quite some distance away, and the Hell’s Angel only lasted three seconds. As such, only about ten or so of the bubbles actually struck them.
Even so, just the mere ten bubbles exploding in their midst caused the two Battalions of Heavy Cavalry and two Battalions of Heavy Infantry to lose more than a third of their numbers.
There were no violent explosions, no special lights or effects. The entire process was just so quick and simple, like an invisible giant hand had poured a immense jug of lava over the entire area. At least three thousand Kalise soldiers and all their various siege weapons disappeared instantly, with not even a single token to show that they had once been there.
Zhou Weiqing pointed his right hand towards the sky as his eyes suddenly lit up. All of the stars in the sky gleamed in a dazzle and it was as bright as his eyes. Hundred of stars shone down and formed a huge cage that was made out of hundreds of light beams. It trapped the Jade Dragon within it. No matter how it struggled to try to break open the cage, it still could not break free.
Zhou Weiqing was hovering empty-handed in mid-air and his eyes were shining brightly. Like a God that descended from Heaven, his body was surrounded by the galaxy belt that turned into a circle of light around him. The dazzling light was glowing with an incomparably powerful aura. The Astral Divine Territory — this was part of the powerful ability that Zhou Weiqing managed to master. Although he was still at the Heavenly Emperor Tier, he had already reached and mastered the Divine Territory. Moreover, his Divine Territory could be considered superior to all the Divine Territories in this world. This was because he had his Saint Energy as a foundation, the Saint Energy that could be used to create the world.
Here are some passages of Zhou using his astral divine territory.
The platinum-colored light on Zhou Weiqing's body suddenly flared brightly as it forcefully melted the black light that covered his body. At the same time, his Dual God Strength Hammers was illuminated with the brilliance of a nebula as the spiraling nebula appeared directly at the hammerhead. As it turned out, he actually activated his Astral Divine Territory directly above it.
All of the Heavenly God-tier powerhouses who were watching the battle were stunned with their mouths wide open. All of them possessed a Divine Territory as well so it was natural that they knew how a Divine Territory functioned. They also knew that Divine Territories were easier to control when it was bigger in size. Although there was a limit to how much it could grow, it would not cause any pressure on the body at all. However, it was a different story when the Divine Territory shrank. Shrinking a Divine Territory was like compressing it. They could not imagine how one could possibly shrink his Divine Territory to become as small as the size of one's hammer like what Zhou Weiqing was doing at the moment.
At this moment, Tian'er changed her position and stood at Zhou Weiqing's back. Her entire being was pressed tightly against him with both her arms around his waist. She unreservedly infused all of her Saint Energy into Zhou Weiqing's body and fully merged their Saint Energy into one.
The sky suddenly dimmed without any warning. Just as quickly, a bright light shimmered and this time, Fen Tian was not sent flying. Instead, he was stuck firmly onto the hammerhead.
The platinum-colored light of the Astral Divine Territory completely enveloped Fen Tian's black-colored body. Innumerable stars appeared beside him and began to collide uncontrollably with the Destruction Energy that radiated off his body. Every time there was a collision, it produced a tenacious energy ripple that was filled with the elements of destruction and creation. It could clearly be seen that both of the white and black colors coming out of Fen Tian and Zhou Weiqing's bodies were slowing down at a visible speed.
Was it true that Zhou Weiqing's Saint Energy could not restrain Fen Tian's Destruction Energy? Naturally, the answer was negative. The twins known as creation and destruction would always inhibit each other. After Zhou Weiqing had managed to raise his cultivation base to the Heavenly God Tier, the purity of his Saint Energy was not inferior to Fen Tian at all.
The black hole in the skies dividing slowly shrank, but when it finally vanished, the Blood Red Hell powerhouses were suddenly surprised to see that the six coloured lights of Long Shiya’s had disappeared as his injuries were critical, but they were replaced by another set of coloured lights.
The disappearance of the black hole did not take away the darkness, only revealing the specks of star light that had been previously covered by the black hole.
Day seemed to have turned into night totally, the dazzling starlight in the skies forming a spinning spiral shaped cloud. The cloud of light seemed to give forth a gentle energy reverberation, and as the star light shone down, the Destruction Barrier of the Blood Red Hell was somehow unable to maintain its position in the skies.
Zhou Weiqing’s Astral Saint Energy was considered the purest power of creation. Creation and Destruction were antonyms, naturally opposing. However, even so they would only be able to restrict each other if they were equal. The Blood Red Hell powerhouses did have the Destruction Attribute, but it was only a small portion of their energies, added on to their original Attributes, and was rather impure. As for Zhou Weiqing’s Saint Energy, it was the purest possible, and was clearly not on the same level.
By activating the Astral Cloud, it also meant that Zhou Weiqing was directly linked to it. Leaving aside the strength and power of the energies, just the aura pressure of the Astral Saint Energy alone was enough to suppress the Destruction Attribute energies.
Without the fusing and overlaying stacking capabilities of the Destruction Attribute energies, it would be impossible for the Blood Red Hell powerhouses to activate attacks that were fused together so perfectly. With just his attribute aura, Zhou Weiqing had caused these Blood Red Hell powerhouses to lose their greatest strength.
The Blood Red Hell First and Third Grand Elder were stunned. At this point, they finally looked at Zhou Weiqing in the distance.
The Astral Cloud swirled, lighting up around Zhou Weiqing’s chest. His entire person hovered high up in the skies, the Second Grand Elder still held in his right hand, though his body hung limply there, without any signs of life.
It was as if Zhou Weiqing could not see the powerful enemies in front of him. Currently, he seemed to have entered a state of profound mysteries and understanding, his face calm and expressionless like nothing could bother him. Under the faint glow of the astral star light, his entire look became that of a king surveying his domain.
The aura of the Astral Saint Energy was not particularly strong, but the faint energy reverberations seemed to mute all of the attributes of those present, enemy and allies alike. More importantly, they were no longer able to connect to the atmospheric energies around them. In their eyes, it was as if Zhou Weiqing had become one with the heavens.
Wu Yunyue’s eyes widened. His appraisal of Zhou Weiqing had already been extremely high, no matter in terms of intelligence, cunning or just strength, this youth was definitely top in the world. However, at this point, he realised that his judgement of Zhou Weiqing was still far from reality. The aura that he was giving off now was already far beyond his recognition.
How could this be possible?! What kind of energy was that!
Both sides were totally stunned. On the side of the Blood Red Hell, the First Grand Elder could clearly sense the Astral energies in the skies, and he dared not make a move easily. The rage from the deaths of the Second and Fourth Elder cooled slightly as he calmed down. ————————- Eight beams of golden light came crashing down from the heavens at Zhou Weiqing’s call. They simultaneously landed upon Six Ultimate Heavenly Emperor Long Shiya, the Demonic Emperor Wu Yunyue, and the six Heavenly Kings of the Heavenly Demon Sect.
The eight of them simultaneously felt an enormous amount of energy that was overflowing to the extreme, while lacking any elemental Attribute, enter their bodies. This power was simply too pure, and its greatest advantage lay in the fact that it was also very gentle, allowing them to absorb it directly.
This pure power also contained a unique energy reverberation. When it circulated through their bodies, their wounds were all healed considerably.
At the same time, Zhou Weiqing used a stance with his right hand. Dense light suddenly exploded in midair and then flew straight into his hand, while the Second Elder in Zhou Weiqing’s other hand also vanished into a cloud of light. These two clouds of light were actually the Heavenly Core Nuclei of the Second and Fourth Grand Elders.
This were the Heavenly Core Nuclei of Heavenly Emperors! In the next instant, two rays of gold light soared into the skies, directly headed for the Astral Cloud. In the air, both Long Shiya and Wu Yunyue did not hesitate any longer, charging towards the Blood Red Hell powerhouses with full power.
With the support of Zhou Weiqing’s Astral Saint Energy, not only were their wounds recovered, their greatly expended Heavenly Energy had now been recovered to a large degree.
It had to be known that after Zhou Weiqing activated and summoned the Astral Cloud, he could be considered the god and ruler of this patch of the world. Under such a circumstance, no one else could even dream of drawing the atmospheric energies here to replenish themselves without his permission. In contrast, the Heavenly Bow Empire powerhouses had his Astral Saint Energy to replenish their powers, and in terms of energy levels they undoubtedly now had an advantage.
Zhou is able to destroy black holes with ease.
Here is a passage of him destroying one and how he is not afraid of them.
Zhou Weiqing took a step forward in the air. Before the Jade Dragon could enter the black hole, he quickly appeared before it and lifted his right hand. At once, the black hole behind the dragon was instantly wiped off by a layer of golden light that exuded from his palm. It was as if it did not appear at all. Forming a fist with his left palm, he smashed it directly on the Jade Dragon's head.
Only Zhou Weiqing had the guts to do something like that. If it was some other Heavenly Emperor-tier powerhouse, the first thing that he would worry about was whether he would be sucked in by the black hole or not. However, Zhou Weiqing was not afraid of this at all. After all, he was able to use Spatial Travel. Moreover, he had also mastered the Galaxia Saint Energy. Due to this reason, the black hole was not a problem at all for him.
Flying Lightning God Technique - can use lightning in its rawest form or in the form of lighting pearls which contain greater power and release thousands of them.
Since Zhou was able to change his heavenly energy into saint energy all his attacks have gotten more powerful as shown in this passage when he releases thousands of lightning pearls it creates a black hole.
It must be remembered that Zhou Weiqing’s Flying Lightning God was now on a completely different level compared to the past. As his Heavenly Energy had been transformed into Saint Energy, all of his techniques were activated via Saint Energy.
The nucleus of every single Lightning Pearl was filled with dim, silvery-white light. When the thousands of Lightning Pearls exploded at the same time, they instantly tore the very air itself apart. Within that area of hundreds of meters, an enormous black hole appeared. Dimensional space itself had been obliterated by those thousands of exploding Lightning Pearls!
Zhou can use a variation of the flying lightning god technique with his overlord bow. Here are some passages showing if.
Pulling his Overlord Bow to a full crescent, Zhou Weiqing narrowed his eyes in focus. Instantly, he locked onto his first target. Naturally, this time he dared not use his Saint Energy so easily.
In an instant, the Six Ultimate Godly Light Formation under his feet which had been glowing in six different lights turned a full bluish purple.
He did not even need to nock any arrow, as a bluish purple arrow formed in position in his Overlord Bow.
A variant of his ‘Flying Lightning God Technique’ forming the arrow, and Zhou Weiqing’s full concentration was on the further siege vehicle, almost one thousand five hundred yards from the Crescent City walls now. Even with his cultivation level, archery skills and the powerful Overlord Bow, this was already at the limit of his accuracy.
A shrill, ear-piercing screech covered the buzz of the bowstring releasing, and the bluish purple lightning that streaked across the skies only left a faint illusory light behind. The soldiers on the city walls nearby could clearly smell the faint burnt smell that the lightning left behind.
Wherever the illusory light passed, the very space and air around it was warped.
The bluish purple light struck directly onto the siege vehicle targeted, one thousand five hundred yards away. The next instant, it exploded in a violent bang. From the city walls, they could even see a small mushroom cloud rise up in the distance. As for the siege vehicle, known for its frontal defense, it just disintegrated in the bluish purple light of the explosion.
Screams of agony rang out. For the Kalise soldiers in that siege vehicle, it was likely that more than half had perished instantly. The terrifying explosive power of the lightning strike caused broken limbs and flesh to fly up and around in the mushroom cloud.
Cheers rang out from the Crescent City walls. Once again, Zhou Weiqing had brought them shock an awe. After all, a distance of one thousand five hundred yards, most ordinary people could barely see at such distance, and even an object the size of the siege vehicle would just be a small black dot far off. Yet, Zhou Weiqing had still managed to destroy one with just an arrow. What kind of accuracy, what kind of destructive power was that!
Some passages pertaining to the flying lightning god technique and the six ultimate godly light formation.
This time, Zhou Weiqing was not just unleashing a Lightning Attribute Skill, but actually wielding lightning itself. His ‘Flying Lightning God Technique’ was not just restricted to those lightning pearls, but even lightning in its raw form. Of course, those lightning pearls were much stronger, a more compressed version that held a stronger explosive power. Once he was able to bring them into play in massive numbers, even those with cultivation levels higher than Zhou Weiqing would not be able to take them easily. In comparison, raw lightning had the superiority in terms of pure speed. Furthermore, currently Zhou Weiqing was unleashing it in an area of effect, and there was almost no possibility of dodging it.
Amongst Zhou Weiqing’s numerous Stored Skills, he had one called the Thousand Lightning Strikes, though it was not a very highly rated Skill. At this moment, Zhou Weiqing was actually using his Six Ultimate Godly Light Formation to mimic the Thousand Lightning Strikes at a far greater degree, and also with much finer control. In terms of control, who could compare with his teachings Long Shiya? That was the core specialty of the Six Ultimate Heavenly Emperor indeed.
The most speechless thing about this attack was that this AOE lightning attack was not just an instantaneous one, but a continuous effect. If one looked closely, they would be able to clearly see that around the wings behind Zhou Weiqing’s back, there was a large whirlpool of faint bluish purple light, swarming into his body. As for the Six Ultimate Godly Light Formation at his feet, it was also fully glowing in that same bluish purple light. In such a state, Zhou Weiqing was almost using his own body as a conductor, drawing all the Lightning Attribute energy from the atmosphere and discharging it via his Six Ultimate Godly Light Formation. Such a constant and persistent AOE effect skill, it was truly terrifying indeed.
Nearly immune to all forms of spiritual suppression
Some passages explaining why he is nearly immune to spiritual suppression.
“This… this is…” Not even Xue AoTian understood what Zhou Weiqing was going through. Only the Entropic Nether Tiger Phelia’s eyes widened in shock.
“Heaven and Earth Primary Tide! How is this possible… how could it be?!” Phelia exclaimed
Xue AoTian looked at his wife in surprise. “Heaven and Earth Primary Tide? What is that?” Without hesitation, Phelia replied: “Only for one that ascends above the Heavenly Dao will have the ability to summon and endure the Heaven and Earth Primary Tide. So, it seems that the legends of old were actually true… The gathering of the Four Saint Attributes can truly cause a miracle that transforms the heavens! After going through this baptism of fire of the Heaven and Earth Primary Tide, his spiritual senses will transcend to Divine Senses, and he will be nearly immune to all forms of spiritual suppression. Furthermore, due to the fact his Divine Spirit will be far above his own Heavenly Energy, his future cultivation will be even faster. Even his body will slowly evolve to be above the Heavenly Dao Stage.”
Soul attack and defense
These passages show when you reach the heavenly god tier you can exert a pressure to crush a person soul and this shows Zhou resisting that pressure.
If not for the fact that the Terror Sea Dragon hated him so much and wanted to torture him slowly, perhaps it would have activated a far stronger, far more terrifying Skill now.
It was in no rush to kill Zhou Weiqing. It wanted to torture him, to see him suffer, and be lost bit by bit to endless terror.
The pressure that a Heavenly God Tier powerhouse could emit was just too horrifying. It was not just on the body, but right deep into the soul as well.
Zhou Weqiing could only feel that if he let up for even just a split second, he would instantly be smashed into smithereens by the massive Water Attribute energies pressing up against him. Not even the slightest fragment of his soul would remain.
All he could do now was just hold on… endure...
This passage shows that when a person reaches the heavenly god realm they can sense everything within hundreds of kilometers.
Just as the Terror Sea Dragon had began to leave, filled with frustration and bile, it caught a glimpse of Zhou Weiqing flying through the air.
As a Heavenly God, its spiritual senses were incredibly acute. It could sense everything within hundreds of kilometers, and so as soon as it discovered Zhou Weiqing it immediately went into hiding and began to prepare to unleash that sneak attack.
Ice cold perception
Some passages explaining the ice cold perception that Zhou has.
The most important boost that the Demonic Change State grants you is not the obvious power, defense, or even what it grants to your Demonic or Darkness Skills. It is the perception and sensory boost.”
“Perception?” Zhou Weiqing was rather surprised. He had truly not expected the answer to be along this line of thinking.
Long Shiya nodded and said seriously: “That’s right. Perception, or your senses. Think back in detail, whenever you enter the Demonic Change State, when you are facing your enemies, aren’t you able to better focus and easily sense the changes in your enemy’s attack patterns and movements? Also, your control over your body, your Energy and your Skills, it is much clearer. Lastly, you are much better able to find any weak points in your enemies, especially in between their Skill usage and compatibility.”
Zhou Weiqing thought for a moment, before realising that it was all true.
Long Shiya gave a cold laugh and said: “The true reason why the Four Great Saint Lands discriminate against the Heavenly Demon Sect is because of that ice cold perception. All those that I mention will allow a person to always be able to use his capabilities at a hundred and twenty percent, to reduce the chances of mistakes and yet capitalize on your enemies’ ones. This is not something that just strength, defense, offense, or Skills can bring to you. And this is what we term the ‘Ice Cold Perception’, and the true strength it brings…
In this state of ‘Ice Cold Perception’, not only will your judgement of both sides’ strength will improve, it will help you in choosing and using what Skills to use, judgement of the battleground and clarity in your surroundings and everything happening at once. Even if you lapse in consciousness, your personal strength can still be subconsciously brought into play at full power. However, in your previous usage of the Demonic Change State, it can be said that you have slightly neglected this most important tool it has provided, and as such you have not fully made use of the Demonic Change State.”
Zhou Weiqing’s heart was struck by a thought, and he said: “The Heavenly Demon Sect had once let me read their Demonic Manual to try and get me on their side… however, there was no mention of this at all in that Demonic Manual.”
Long Shiya laughed heartily and said: “The true power of the ‘Ice Cold Perception’, and how to improve it…
that is the absolute core secret of the entire Heavenly Demon Sect. Unless you actually join them and become part of their core members, how could they possibly reveal it to you? Although the Heavenly Demon Sect is the weakest of the Five Great Saint Lands, none of the other four would underestimate them. In the Heavenly Demon Sect, there may not be many members who actually have the ability to use the Demonic Change State, at most over twenty people. Out of those, there are probably only six or seven who have reached the Heavenly King Stage or higher. Even so, with just these few powerhouses who are able to enter the Demonic Change State, even if they face off against ordinary Heavenly Emperors, they can still hold their own. According to conventional thinking, a Great Saint Lands requires at least one Heavenly Emperor Stage powerhouse to hold the fort, yet the Heavenly Demonly Sect does not have a single one, and even their Sect Master is at the Max Level of the Heavenly King Stage. Yet, even if I were to face off against him, if he went all out without caring about his own life, although he will not be able to defeat me easily, if I wanted to kill him, he would have a forty percent chance of dragging me into hell along with him… Do you know how terrifying that is… how massive the gap between the max level Heavenly King Stage and max level Heavenly Emperor Stage is? I can tell you accurately that the difference between the two is just like the gap between you currently with a Heavenly King Stage powerhouse. From the Heavenly King Stage onwards, each small stage is a major power increase, let alone the large stage. In such a circumstance, for the Demonic Change State to enable him to somewhat close that gap, you can imagine how terrifying that is… and why the other Four Great Saint Lands are so afraid of the Heavenly Demon Sect.”
Zhou uses the time space black hole skill that he created.
Instantly, a terrifying Spatial Attribute reverberation burst out from Zhou Weiqing’s hammers where they intersected, the silver light gathering into a point. All around the silver light, everything seemed to slow down, even TianFeng and TianMa’s approaching attacks.
In the next instant, a silver ring of light gushed out from the intersection of Zhou Weiqing’s hammers. In the middle of the ring, there was a black hole; not large at all, only a metre in diameter. However, this black hole seemed to swallow everything.
All of the purple light was crazily torn and scattered about as soon as it reached the black hole, with most flying towards the air, with only a few hitting the stage floor. However, just the small portion that hit the floor actually tore the entire stage into bits, causing a massive hole in the ground. The terrifying energy fluctuation caused the all the surrounding battle team members to fly back, even having to abandon their rest houses.
*BANG* A twisting energy reverberation soared up into the air, as if forming a massive pillar of light. The terrifying destructive aura causing the entire audience to fall into silence, as they all held their breaths, almost forgetting to breathe.
Most of the audience was just here to watch and enjoy themselves, however at this moment they truly under stood how terrifying such a fight could be. Even with just a tiny amount of the purple light landing on the stage, the tough stage floor was still fully destroyed, leaving such a massive hole in the ground. The four members of the Heavenly Bow and Dan Dun Battle Teams were standing right in the middle of the gaping hole.
There was no cloud of dust from the hole, as all the shattered earth had been disintegrated by the Destruction Attribute and swallowed by the black hole in front of Zhou Weiqing.
Zhou Weiqing’s current expression was bleak, while Tian’er still had a hand pressed to his back. Clearly, this defensive strike of their was their combined efforts. With the Six Ultimate Godly Light Formation, Zhou Weiqing could do more than just wield his Lightning Attribute. At that moment, in order to deal with the powerful Destruction Attribute attack of the brothers, he had no choice but to use a Fusion Skill… one infused with the Saint Energy.
Upon the Dual Legendary Hammers, he had unleashed a Skill each, before fusing them together as they struck each other. On the crying-face hammer, it was the Spatial Rend, while the smiling-face hammer held the Time Disorder Skill. The Fused Skill was the Time Space Black Hole Skill, a purely defensive Skill. The Spatial Rend and the Time Disorder was fused perfectly with the help of the Saint Energy, forcefully swallowing the powerful combined destruction attacks of TianFeng and TianMa, scattering them away.
Indeed, this was the Spatial Rend. However, the current Spatial Rend was formed in a small circular shape, not its original straight line. As the circle formed, the rend in space formed a ring, collapsing the space within among itself, forming that small one chi diametre black hole.
The suction power of it was more than three times stronger than the old straight-line Spatial Rend, and Zhou Weiqing stood still as the seven Wind Blades were drawn in and swallowed up by the terrifying suction of the black hole.
In the midst of charging, Lichuan’s heart gripped as he saw that. Just as he was about to make his next move, a strange sight occurred, as the black hole and the silver light around it disappeared abruptly.
It had to be known that although the Spatial Rend Skill was incredibly powerful, it had a fixed position once used.
In the next moment, a loud bang occurred, and without a chance to react, the Spatial Rend gravity hole appeared in front of Lichuan, who smashed right into it.
No one would have thought that the Spatial Rend would suddenly move five yards to the front, right into Lichuan’s path as he was charging! Luckily, Lichuan had been in the midst of trying to make another move, and his speed had slowed down. Even still, accompanying the earsplitting cutting sound was the utter shattering of Lichuan’s white Heavenly Energy surrounding him, and also the front of his clothes.
Making use of the shockwaves of the impact, Lichuan stumbled backwards to save himself, though the front of his chest was now a bloody mess. Most of his Elemental Jewel Stored Skills were offensive ones, as he had much confidence in the Flexibility of his body. However, when Flexibility met with a head-on Spatial Rend, it was like a scholar meeting a gangster, no amount of reason can save you. As such, a quick meet up, and he was severely injured.
Not only did that black hole have its suction force strengthened, its cutting capabilities were also strengthened. In order to stop this ten-star rated skill from shredding his body apart just in that moment, Lichuan had expended almost a third of his entire Heavenly Energy.
From the moment the Spatial Rend appeared til it dissipated, it was only three mere seconds. A very short time. Yet it felt so long, long enough to do so many things.
Zhou Weiqing stood there, not taking any more action, instead saying passively: “Surrender. You should know that I had already shown you mercy.”
Lichuan gritted his teeth, suppressing the pain in his chest as his face turned red and white. Finally, he sighed and said: “I surrender.” After saying that, he quickly jumped down the stage to receive healing treatment.
Up on the VIP Stage, the ZhongTian Emperor, Shangguan Tianxin looked on with a surprised expression. “That little fellow has actually started to understand the profound secrets of the Spatial Attribute! Good… very good. This will allow him to fully utilise the power of this ten-star rated Skill. Not bad at all, he has already quite a good understanding of the skill.”
The Emperor was not the only one who revealed a look of surprise, as many of the other powerhouses also took notice of Zhou Weiqing. More importantly, the four seeded teams had also started paying some attention to him.
In the Fei Li Battle Team Rest House, Ye Paopao looked curiously at Zhou Weiqing who was walking down slowly from the stage, and asked Lin TianAo: “Leader, did he just win like that? What’s going on? That Lichuan still has fight left him in right?”
Lin TianAo shook his head and said: “Weiqing has definitely given me a big surprise. Indeed, that Lichuan still has a lot of fight left in him, but he knows that no matter what he will not be able to defeat Weiqing. Let me explain it simply, as long as Lichuan has no skill or equipment that can block the power of the Spatial Rend, since Weiqing can make it appear right in front of him at will, he could easily move it in front of his neck. Furthermore, even if he did have a powerful equipment to block the Spatial Rend, since Weiqing is able to move it at will, he can still place it at a position that isn’t protected. A ten-star rated Skill, how can the offensive power not be strong?”
“More importantly, it showed that Weiqing has already started understanding the profound mysteries of the Spatial Attribute. He actually managed to fuse the Spatial Rend and the Blink skill together, allowing the Spatial Rend which originally is unable to be moved to be teleported around by the Blink Skill. This, is the true power of a fusion skill.”
Here are passages showing what Zhou can do at the heavenly king tier when he fights his father in law.
It had been three attacks already. Zhou Weiqing wasn’t going to hold back any further. Being able to rely on his physical defenses alone to endure three attacks had already stunned everyone present, but this was just the start. Zhou Weiqing pointed with his right hand, causing the strange Image of a feline Heavenly Beast to flicker before him, then bound towards Shangguan Tianyue. He didn’t seem to need to first accumulate power at all.
Shangguan Tianyue waved his sleeves. Now that Zhou Weiqing had used a technique, he himself wasn’t going to be overly courteous any longer. A icy blue longspear shot out and flew straight towards that feline Heavenly Beast.
Was this a Heavenly Skill Image? No. Zhou Weiqing’s technique didn’t have the aura of a Heavenly Skill Image at all.
Something marvelous happened. When the feline Heavenly Beast collided against the icy longspear, its body twisted slightly… and in the next instantly, the icy spear actually flew through it. The feline, however, was landing in front of Shangguan Tianyue.
“Eh?” Shangguan Tianyue had a stunned look in his eyes. He quickly sensed his entire body turning slow and sluggish.
Zhou Weiqing’s left hand suddenly struck out as well. The air behind him was broken apart, with silver light flashing and then disappearing. Boom! The extremely dense longspear of ice transformed into countless specks of light, then disappeared. This was what happened when Saint Energy was used to activate the upgraded version of Spatial Rend, Spatial Collapse.
As for that feline Heavenly Beast, it was the evolved version of the control technique, ‘Absolute Delay’!
When Zhou Weiqing released Skills, he no longer emanated particularly powerful auras from his body. He looked just like an ordinary person waving his hand, but the process didn’t slow down in the slightest.
After sweeping out with his arms, he didn’t retract them. Instead, he took advantage of the brief moment where Shangguan Tianyue was affected by the Absolute Delay to rapidly point with both hands, his fingers stabbing out like butterflies drifting through flowers. Over on Shangguan Tianyue’s side, a series of azure lightning bolts began to light up. Twelve consecutive Fetters of Wind landed upon him!
What sort of casting speed was this?! Although this looked like the Six Ultimate Godly Light Formation which Six Ultimate Heavenly Emperor Long Shiya had developed based on the Six Ultimate Heavenly Dao Formation, in reality Zhou Weiqing was relying on his Saint Energy. The way in which he used these techniques was completely different from how Six Ultimate Heavenly Emperor Long Shiya used them.
Simply put, the same Fetters of Wind technique was now at least four times more powerful in Zhou Weiqing’s hands than those of an equivalent-level Heavenly Jewel Master. This was a 7 Star rated technique which when used by him had the effect of a 10 Star technique. When these twelve Fetters of Wind fell upon Shangguan Tianyue, it wasn’t easy for him to break free even though he was a Heavenly Emperor.
Although it was impossible for him to summon atmospheric energies from the outside world here, the local atmospheric energies were still quite dense. Zhou Weiqing didn’t pause after unleashing twelve Fetters of Wind. He flipped over his palms, then placed them facing each other. The spectators could all see the blue-violet light shining between his palms. In the next instant, an enormous lightning dragon burst forth from his palms and shot straight at Shangguan Tianyue.
The lightning moved incredibly fast. Even though it was now in the shape of a great dragon, it didn’t lose this intrinsic property.
Shangguan Tianyue had been caught off-guard and thrown off-balance by the Absolute Delay and the Fetters of Wind. Before he had managed to completely break free, Zhou Weiqing’s lightning dragon had arrived.
At this moment, he put his power as a Heavenly Emperor on full display. Although he had yet to fully extricate himself from the Fetters of Wind, his eyes flashed and a translucent, crystalline shield of ice appeared before him. This ice shield was three meters in diameter, and it securely covered his entire body. Just because he couldn’t move didn’t mean he couldn’t cast Skills.
However, Zhou Weiqing’s control over his lightning dragon technique wasn’t that simple either. Right as the great lightning dragon was about to collide against the ice shield, it suddenly twisted aside to dodge the shield and still blasted against Shangguan Tianyue.
An enormous explosion rang out. A layer of blue-violet light appeared across Shangguan Tianyue’s entire body. He had finally managed to break free from the Fetters of the Wind, but now a powerful numbing sensation pervaded his entire body.
This lightning dragon technique was something Zhou Weiqing had created after simulating and testing out multiple variations of Lightning Suffering. Not even Long Shiya, who had the Lightning Attribute, would be able to do this because he wasn’t strengthened by Saint Energy!
Black light suddenly descended upon the area. This black light had actually come from beneath Shangguan Tianyue’s feet, and it manifested itself in the form of a six-cornered black star.
Shangguan Tianyue, as a Heavenly Emperor, had an incredibly tough body. Although Zhou Weiqing had landed the attack, it didn’t actually injure him. However, this black light was simply too fast. He hadn’t had a chance to break free from the numbness. A black-red light suddenly flashed about his head, coming together to form a strange glyph. This was the Curse of Doom. Of course, it had also been strengthened.
Zhou Weiqing didn’t even pause as he used these techniques. It can be said that they all came out one after the other, and each of them was tremendously powerful.
After the Curse of Doom, his movements slowed down for just a brief moment as he pressed his hands together across his chest, then pushed them outwards in an arc while unleashing a dense blast of silver light. By the time his hands were completely unfolded, a Silver Emperor suddenly flew out. It instantly accelerated through the skies, piercing forward at lightning speed. Next, a Silver Emperor Wing Slash fused with the Spatial Rend to produce the Fusion Skill, Silver Emperor Spatial Rend. It almost instantly charged over to Shangguan Tianyue.
The joss stick had only burned down a tiny amount thus far, but during that brief period of time Zhan Lingtian’s back had already been drenched by sweat. Aside from awe, he was unable to feel any other emotions. No matter what, he never would’ve imagined that Zhou Weiqing would reach such a level that he could actually suppress Shangguan Tianyue. He wasn’t a weakling, and he was very familiar with the two Palace Masters. He could tell that aside from not using the Legendary Set, Shangguan Tianyue wasn’t holding back at all. And yet, he was still being suppressed by Zhou Weiqing!
Shangguan Tianyang, who stood next to Zhan Lingtian, hadn’t revealed a smile after his first one had vanished. His understanding of the battle was naturally much deeper than Zhan Lingtian’s. These techniques Zhou Weiqing were using… although they were his, they were completely reliant upon being cast through the Six Ultimate Godly Light Formation. In other words, these were all simulated techniques but just as strong as the real ones.
A dazzling streak of golden light suddenly burst forth from Shangguan Tianyue’s body. The light appeared around his chest, causing him to be filled with a godlike aura. It actually managed to instantly dispel the numbing effect as well as the Curse of Doom. His eyes flashed with divine light as he spat out a streak of golden light which transformed into a golden knife that clashed head-on against the Silver Emperor.
An enormous explosion rang out, resulting in the Silver Emperor falling backwards while Shangguan Tianyue’s shoulders trembled slightly. He had been at a disadvantage and had just barely managed to unleash that Skills, and so he didn’t manage to actually destroy the Silver Emperor.
Zhou Weiqing didn’t let up with his attacks at all. After the Silver Emperor flew out, his hands and his back actually began to glow with two completely types of light.
The light coming from his back was purple-red, while his two hands were glowing dark-purple. As these two streaks of light were formed and flew out, his movements finally paused for a moment. However, his technique was completed just as Shangguan Tianyue beat back the Silver Emperor.
Six wings flapped violently as the Hell’s Angel soared into the skies. This was what had been materialized from the dark-purple light, and as emerged it came to hover five meters in front of Zhou Weiqing. Countless globes of dark-violet light burst from it, smashing towards Shangguan Tianyue as the Silver Emperor attacked a second time from the side.
Just at this moment, a human figure with a serpent’s tail and a devilish face suddenly flew out from Zhou Weiqing’s back. A beam of violet-red light shot out from its eyes and burst towards Shangguan Tianyue.
This had all happened in mere seconds. Zhou Weiqing had actually successfully revived the Silver Emperor, Hell’s Angel, and the Demonic Dragon Lady. These three powerful creatures simultaneously launched attacks at Shangguan Tianyue.
Zhou Weiqing’s attacks finally came to a temporary pause after he completed these three revivals. Reviving the Hell’s Angel and the Silver Emperor was easy, as both were at the Heavenly King stage. Given his cultivation, he could complete their revivals with ease. The Demonic Dragon Lady, however, was a Heavenly Beast who was a Max Level Heavenly Emperor. Reviving it had been quite taxing for Zhou Weiqing. Even the Astral Saint Core Nucleus in his chest dimmed slightly.
However, this actually showed how powerful Zhou Weiqing was. Although the Astral Saint Core Nucleus in his chest had dimmed slightly, the golden aura around his body had grown markedly stronger. All types of atmospheric energies in the air were being pulled into him at incredible speeds. In fact, not even the two Heavenly Emperors were far from being his match when it came to controlling atmospheric energies.
Some more passages of him fighting his father in law.
His Dual Legendary Hammers raised up, slamming directly towards Shangguan Tianyue’s head. At the same time, ray after ray of lights lit up around Shangguan Tianyue without any pause.
Absolute Delay. Fetters of Wind. Curse of Doom. Spatial Collapse. All focused on control and restriction, as well as powerful single target Skills. It could be said that in this very moment, Zhou Weiqing was tantamount to six or seven Heavenly King powerhouses unleashing all their Skill simultaneously, the density of fire so high that one could only sigh in admiration. Even Shangguan Tianyue had to admit to himself that he could not accomplish this.
In that moment, Shangguan Tianyue’s body actually turned ‘multi-coloured’, each colour representing various restrictions, boosts, causing him to be unable to dodge anything at all despite having the full power of a Heavenly Emperor. In the end, he could only forcefully lift his arms, circulating his Heavenly Energy with all his might in an attempt to block Zhou Weiqing’s attacks.
Zhou Weiqing’s eyes had turned grey and overcast, filling the entire area with the ice cold demonic aura, causing the temperature to drop by at least several dozen degrees.
The Dual Legendary Hammers slammed directly into Shangguan Tianyue, without any flourishes. To everyone’s surprise, even with Shangguan Tianyue’s powerful physique and thick Heavenly Energy, he was actually sent flying by the hammer blows of Zhou Weiqing.
Zhou Weiqing’s right foot stomped down hard on the ground, his entire body charging towards Shanguan Tianyue’s flying body in an unforgiving chase. At the same time, his right leg was swirling in the air in an illusory figure, and over a hundred crystalline energy pearls appeared all around Shangguan Tianyue. In the next instant, they all plastered themselves onto him, exploding with a terrifying accompaniment.
This was not so simple as mere Lightning Pearls! Each and every single pearl was glowing with Blue, Black and Grey. It was the Dark Demon God Lightning that he had not used for such a long time. In the past, he had used this Dark Demon God Lightning to defeat Shen Little Demon for the first time, when he was only at the three-Jeweled stage. Currently, more than a hundred of these pearls had appeared, and with his Heavenly King stage cultivation, one could just imagine the collective power of these Dark Demon God Lightning pearls.
Shangguan Tianyue’s body was still flying in midair, giving a muffled grunt. His clothes were already torn in many areas, and current Zhou Weiqing’s Dual Legendary Hammers were once again reaching him, slamming into his chest once more.
This time, Shangguan Tianyue was slammed directly into the ground. The drill grounds existed in another small spatial existence, but even so, his tall and large figure was drilled into the ground. A mouth of blood spurted out from his mouth.
"*BANG——* The explosion that rang out first was from the bolt of blue lightning. Although the target was a kilometer away, the power and speed of the arrow shot from the Overlord Bow was just too terrifying.
In the ensuing violent blast, the large tent a kilometer away which Zhou Weiqing had targeted instantly exploded with a deafening sound. If one were to observe from above, the tent’s explosion causing a ring of blue light to spread out from the ground zero of the explosion. Flames sprang forth and screams and cries were heard.
It was quickly followed by four smaller explosions, three of which were caused by the latter three arrows Zhou Weiqing fired. He did not even bother aiming, and just shot them into where there were more soldiers massed. With the explosive effect of the Overlord Bow, even though Zhou Weiqing did not make use of any Elemental Jewel skills, the arrows were still extremely deadly, exploding right in the midst of all the incoming Kalise soldiers and causing at least ten or so casualties per strike.
As for the last rumbling sound, it was actually due to Zhou Weiqing destroying the watchtower. The floor of the top part of the watchtower actually disintegrated as he stomped hard onto it, while he made use of the opposing force to launch himself away."
Some passages of Zhou using his bow and using the blink skill with his arrow to surprise his opponent.
In the next instant, when Zhou Weiqing fired the next arrow, he had sent the Spatial Attribute Skill Blink from his Elemental Jewel and fused it with the Overlord Bow. Calculating the fact that Luo Ke Di had a limited range of motion while in midair, his Overlord Spatial Arrow’s effect was pretty simple. It did not have any increase in power, but it was able to cause the arrow to Blink in midair. Once the arrow had reached about 250 yards from Luo Ke Di, it blinked right to him. Indeed, Luo Ke Di’s judgement had not been wrong at all, but alas he had not calculated the fact that the arrow could just blink next to him! Although Zhou Weiqing could not fully control the Overlord Spatial Arrow yet, his luck was pretty decent and it had succeeded in a single try.
Hate Ground No Handle Set (Ringless Ground Purging Set) - A 11 part god tier legendary set his Legendary Set function is to multiply his strength. At full 11 piece set his strength is 2048 times of his strength at what it should be at that level(at 12 jewels he is 2048 times stronger then a normal 12 jewel guy without any Legendary set).
Under such a circumstance, Zhou Weiqing’s fighting spirit was ignited. All of a sudden, the hammer in his left hand flashed with a strange green light, and Ming Hua felt her body freeze in position, unable to move. At the same time, the hammer on the right shuddered, layers of dark gold light bursting forth incessantly. With a *Weng* sound, the air in the room seemed to ripple in a strange distortion, and the eighty one Hades’ Flowers all froze for a split second.
Stunning Reverberation – This was one of the skills that the Legendary Dual God Strength Hammers contained within them. In that split second they were frozen, Zhou Weiqing seized the opportunity, his Demonic Right Leg bursting forth with a sudden power. Striking forth with the dual hammers ahead of him to clear the path, he charged at a breakneck speed towards Ming Hua, right through all the Hades’ Flowers.
A passage of how his hammer increase the power of his skills.
The Legendary Dual God Strength Hammers did not have sockets, as they were not necessary at all. When Zhou Weiqing wielded them, he could use any of his Elemental Jewel Stored Skills, and did not need to socket them. Furthermore, any skill which was unleashed using the hammers were a full level stronger, without costing more Heavenly Energy. This was the true strength of a God Tier Consolidated Equipment.
Some passages of another ability his hammers posses.
In truth, the secret of the twin hammers was in the line – ‘Good and evil, illusion and truth.’ Although they seemed to be a pair of hammers, it was actually one real and one fake hammer! The fake one was able to draw attention and trick enemies, while the real one held unbelievable power. Without question, the fake one signified ‘good’, while the real one signified ‘evil’. The mix of truth and illusion made it easy to trick and fool enemies, which could hold destructive end results for them. Take for example, if you were striking with all your might to block a seemingly powerful blow, and it turned out to be fake, it would cause a loss of balance and an overextension of strength – which could easily lead to defeat. More importantly, Zhou Weiqing could switch the false and real hammers at will! Adding that to the fact that he could make use of them to unleash any of his skills without socketing them, and at a higher level, this was indeed an impressive weapon. Indeed, it was because of this God Tier weapon that Zhou Weiqing had been able to defeat Ming Hua, who was of a higher cultivation level than he was.
Some passages of when he gets his tenth piece for the legendary set it has spatial rend around his set to protect him.
Yes, Zhou Weiqing's Ringless Ground Purging Set could definitely be described as a showoff. When they appeared on him, the air around him seemed to implode on itself. There was a black glow around his body when he moved. That was the black hole created from the Spatial Rend.
It was one of the special effects of the completed Ringless Ground Purging Set. How could the attacks from his enemy not be significantly discounted when there was a layer of Spatial Rend that seemed like a black hole around him all the time? Patterns that were not there previously also appeared on the completed Ringless Ground Purging Set. There were patterns of roses on the bright golden armor. Coupled with the different shades and intensity of the color gold, it complemented the legendary armor set, making it even more beautiful.
Here is a passage of just him gently swinging his hammers causing spatial collapse.
Zhou Weiqing gently swung the hammers in his hands. Suddenly, the surroundings turned dark. It was the scene of Spatial Collapse. After the Ringless Ground Purging Set was completed, the increase in its strength was too terrifying. It was so terrifying that even the space around him could barely handle it. Under such a situation, it would be difficult to fight Zhou Weiqing with brute strength.
Here are some more passages on what advantages his legendary set gives him.
The man in black was not ordinary either. Faced with Zhou Weiqing's close range of attack, his expression changed, and he raised both arms at the same time, creating a whirling move. A layer of bizarre and twisted, shapeless halos immediately appeared, blocking Zhou Weiqing's Dual God Strength Hammers.
Time Attribute. Zhou Weiqing had already known that this fellow had the ability of Time Attribute. Seeing the opposition use a skill that had a similar effect to space-time turbulence to block his hammer, the corners of his lips curled into a cold smile.
That's right, the Time Attribute was one of the Four Great Saint Attributes, and a powerful destructive force at best. Generally speaking, physical attacks would be useless when faced with space-time turbulence and would be pushed aside. However, were Zhou Weiqing's Dual God Strength Hammers that easy to deal with?
After assembling the Ringless Ground Purging Set, Zhou Weiqing was already included with an extra ability after the set was completed. For example, the ability to eradicate everything. In other words, the power of the Ringless Ground Purging set can collide with any attack from any energy or attribute, rendering the effects from the enemies' energy skills useless.
A loud bang rang aloud in the clash, and the black shadow groaned, like a cannon blast, and smashed heavily downwards. You could even hear the bones in both his arms crack.
The power of the amplified Ringless Ground Purging Set was absolutely terrifying, even a Heavenly God Cultivator would not willingly clash with Zhou Weiqing. This was the first time the set was ever displayed; no one had ever laid eyes on it. The bright gold armor was not simply for a dazzling sight. It contained a powerful destructive force; even ten legendary armor sets would be considered second best.
Some passages of Zhou fighting an opponent with the time and darkness attribute and how the opponent is unable to do anything to him when he has the legendary set on.
Domineering energy wave exploded instantly. Initially, the distorted Time attribute energy was just hovering around the man in black's body. However at that moment, it spread out quickly, and the space within thousands of square meters became distorted. There were countless tiny black cracks on them. It was not caused by Spatial Rend. Instead, it was the effect of Time Rend.
The impact from Time Rend was not as simple Spatial Rend. Once hit, it might not instantly tear the individual apart. However, there would be repercussions such as instant aging or shrinking in size. Besides, the time wave coming through the cracks was different. That said, once hit, the cracks would cause a time disorder in a person's body. By then, it would be a real pain in the ass. When one had a low Time Attribute cultivation base, one's Divine Attribute would not have a powerful impact. It was used more to defend instead of attack. However, when one got to the Heavenly Emperor Tier, the offensive prowess of the Time Attribute would be superior to the Divine Attribute. It was comparable to Demonic Attribute. Moreover, it would be even more unpredictable and harder to defend against.
As the terrifying energy wave exploded, Zhou Weiqing moved quickly with disdain on his face. To their surprise, he chose to retreat. A reddish gold glow that looked like a nebula was released from his body in a spiral shape. It blocked the overbearing time turbulence outside from getting close to his body.
Meanwhile, the man in black had arrived in front of Zhou Weiqing. When he was approaching Zhou Weiqing, all of the cracks from the Time Rend avoided him and created a path for him. As he waved his hand in the air, the sword that was initially on his back appeared in his hand. The sword was also completely black. The sword glinted and a strange distorted black glow rushed towards Zhou Weiqing.
From the looks of it, the black glow was only about ten meters long. Most people at the Heavenly Emperor Tier would judge the attack superficially and they would not consider it powerful at all. However, Zhou Weiqing knew very well how powerful the man in black's attack was. It was not a simple or normal attack. It was not even a pure Time Attribute attack. To his surprise, the man in black before him possessed double attributes of Darkness and Time. An upper-level attribute combined with a Divine Attribute. Anyone could imagine how impressive the sword attack would be. It integrated Darkness and Time Attributes perfectly. This fellow could be considered a genius.
It was unfortunate that the person he encountered was Zhou Weiqing. Faced with the man in black's attack, the reddish gold Nebula Saint Energy around his body started to distort as well. Soon after, he rotated his body lightly and smashed the dual hammers in his hands forward. It was a strong blow. When the loud bang sounded, the black sword glow was crushed into pieces by the Dual God Strength Hammers in Zhou Weiqing's hands. Even the large coverage of the distorted time glow was quivering.
A powerful person could fight 10 martial artists. When strength had reached a certain level, it could not be explained using common theory anymore. The trait of the Ringless Ground Purging Set had given Zhou Weiqing the strength to endure attacks of any attributes by force.
Zhou can use his hammer and creating numerous and huge black holes.
Any energy would start to have a certain degree of mutation the moment it reached its limit. Just as the saying went, all roads lead to Rome. Earlier, Zhou Weiqing swatted Fen Tian away with the help of his brute force. Although he was unable to inflict any injuries to Fen Tian, at the very least, he did not allow him to fully devour the Demon God's energy.
The Dual God Strength Hammers were waved again. In mid-air, a hundred-meter tall illusion of the gigantic hammer plunged down from the sky as it slammed its way towards Fen Tian.
There was another flash of shadows, and Fen Tian disappeared again. All the same, Zhou Weiqing and Tian'er vanished as well.
A light reappeared. Without any warning, Fen Tian's Destruction Sword reemerged right at the spot where Zhou Weiqing and Tian'er were standing barely a second ago. The two of them, on the other hand, reappeared at another side.
The power that Zhou Weiqing used was the Spatial Law. As for the power that Fen Tian was using, well, he had no clue at all.
The gigantic hammer did not come to a halt despite Fen Tian's disappearance. Instead, it crudely slammed down in mid-air. With a loud rumble, a black hole with a diameter of a thousand meters was slammed open by the hammer. The energy from the devour was so robust that it caused Zhou Weiqing and Fen Tian's body to shake violently for a moment.
The Dual God Strength Hammers moved again. In no time at all, the illusion of the gigantic hammer in the air suddenly went into a frenzy as it began to smash in all directions without hesitation.
Whether it was Zhou Weiqing or Fen Tian, and regardless of how powerful their cultivation bases were, they were not real gods after all. They could not go near the black hole at all. Perhaps the black hole could not devour them, but it could still affect their strength greatly. At this moment, several dozens of gigantic black holes suddenly emerged in the sky as it blocked off all the routes of Fen Tian's attacks towards Zhou Weiqing.

Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.
Mar 24, 2020 13:38:28 GMT
Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.
Mar 29, 2020 0:47:15 GMT
CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.
Mar 29, 2020 15:13:27 GMT
El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.
Mar 29, 2020 21:52:25 GMT
