“It’s him!” The eight-hooved beast true god recognized him right away. This great being that was transformed into a gigantic, blurry blade figure was crushing and rolling its way over. This was the law master who had stolen a true god corpse earlier on.
“He’s just a law master! No matter how impressive his close-combat dodging technique is, his law comprehension foundation is as superficial. From what we can see, the battle techniques that he can comprehend will not surpass what is expected of him.”
The eight-hooved beast true god was brimming with self-confidence. Previously, he had leaped in shock, yet the moment he determined that it was merely a law master he was dealing with, he no longer held onto any trace of worry.
His line of thinking was not wrong. The foundation determined the technique!
A universe master, being able to create a secret technique that reached the sixth-tier as the top level was already adequate enough to be regarded as incredible. Before Luo Feng, within Universe Ocean, there was no such precedence. Even Luo Feng had to rely on help from the space of inheritance to be able to create a secret technique that reached the sixth tier as the top level.
Seventh tier as the top? Generations of Duan Dong River had been so great and powerful, yet only slightly more than half managed to create secret techniques at this level. As for the eighth tier, of the generations of Duan Dong River, only two had managed to accomplish this level.
But for true gods—even an ordinary true god—being able to create secret techniques at the seventh tier as the top to the eighth tier was nothing extraordinary. As for some super true gods, the ninth tier or even the tenth tier were achievable. This was the difference in foundation. The higher one’s foundation was, the more at ease one would be when it came to comprehension.
This eight-hooved beast true god was a true god to begin with. The secret technique he executed would naturally be at a given standard.
“He must be quite a greedy one to think of attacking me. He must be eyeing the great number of true god corpses I have collected.” The eight-hooved beast god was looking forward to the outcome of their fight. “Hahaha! A young chap who is a law master and is quite impressive. He must be one of the top-tiered elites in the army and must have been bestowed with a true god armor. I would never have expected to obtain my true god armor from a law master.”
The eight-hooved beast true god did not attempt to escape. On the contrary, he charged forward like mad.
The gigantic blade figure and the huge beast were howling as they both tore through the surrounding purple vines to charge directly at one another.
Several true gods fighting on the faraway battlefield had already noticed that in the region on the edge of the battlefield, a blurry blade figure had appeared. They all recognized it the moment they laid eyes on it. It was none other than the extraordinary talent that had stolen the corpses away.
“It’s that law master.”
“It’s that super genius.”
“That law master had the guts to come here again? No matter how ingenious he was, he was only a law master.”
“That law master dared come again? No matter how gifted he is, he is only a law master.”
“Let’s catch this talent.”
Suddenly, there were true gods flying over.
They were all aware that when the army trained and honed talents, true gods of void space were not allowed to intervene. But true gods were allowed to act, so even if talents were annihilated by true gods, they only had themselves to blame for not being capable enough!
“For the group of true gods to fly here, they will need 29 seconds,” Luo Feng confirmed right away.
The true god level battlefield was boundless to begin with; the eight-hooved beast true god was wandering around the region by the edge of the battlefield while Luo Feng’s position was in more of a remote area. Even if the ultimate speed limit in the World of Jin was very high. To rush over to where the beast true god was, he most certainly required 29 seconds.
“29 seconds. Let’s finish it out!”
Luo Feng’s gaze was focused on the eight-hooved beast true god before him.
“Haha! He is one greedy law master to not consider his escape,” said the eight-hooved strange beast. “Given his ability to escape and dodge, I am definitely no match for its speed. But if he were to fight me upfront… I can finish him off as quickly as possible. It will be my claim to fame.”
The eight-hooved beast true god was going crazy with excitement, and his single eye was flashing colors filled with murderous intentions.
Two gigantic figures finally crossed paths. With a thunderous roar, the eight-hooved beast true god waved its front claw across the length of space it was in, then—
Blades met. Luo Feng was swift as a tornado, avoiding the attack in a flash.
Dodging again! roared the eight-hooved beast true god in its heart. It lashed out a whipping blow with its incredibly fast tail, which seemed like a boneless, soft whip that was formed by connecting various knots. With a roar, it transformed into an arc that lashed out at Luo Feng. Yet, the moment Luo Feng—in the form of his blurry blade figure—touched the edge of the tail, he trampled on it and settled himself on the back of the eight-hooved beast true god.
It may have seemed as if everything was occurring very slowly, but when the two crossed paths, Luo Feng was on the back of the eight-hooved beast god almost immediately.
Luo Feng finally brandished his Blood Ghost Blade!
His blade rays were like water adrift with no fixed direction. In an instant, it sliced down at the long neck off the eight-hooved beast true god. However, the beast true god instantly twisted its head toward the back as it opened its bloodstained mouth, revealing fangs that immediately bit onto Luo Feng’s blade.
The blade ray that was originally like water ripples exploded in an instant, producing a terrifying penetrating force. This was the greatest blade technique Luo Feng had created: Light of Water and Fire!
“Ah!” The penetrating force of the precious blade embryo, “Blood Ghost Blade” of the pulse of Duan Dong River, immediately caused the eight-hooved beast true god to cry out in shock and fear. Its single eye widened, filled with amazement and horror as it cried, “Impossible, impossible! After his godly power was set ablaze, how could it be stronger than mine? I am a true god, and he is only a law master!”
The beast true god was wrong. So, so wrong.
Indeed, an eight-hooved beast true god’s godly power was stronger than Luo Feng’s godly power by one full level. However, it had never joined the army, so it did not know the unique secret technique of blazing godly power. And Luo Feng had merely executed the first volume of “Extermination,” but it was more than enough to make up for the difference in godly power. The second volume of Extermination was the reason why Luo Feng could surpass this true god before him!
When it was about blazing godly power, Luo Feng was much more skilled!
Luo Feng was more powerful in the close-combat dodging techniques in the first place, so he was certainly much tougher and could easily dodge or ward off any attacks by the eight-hooved beast true god. Yet, on the other hand, in the face of Luo Feng’s attacks, the eight-hooved beast true god could only attempt to bear the weight of it all with its brute strength.
Kill! Kill! Kill!
Luo Feng was going mad. Sustaining the blazing level according to the second volume of Extermination, his godly power was depleting like crazy. Even if no other true gods had been quickly approaching from afar, he would not have been able to continue fighting in this manner for long. Everything needed to be fast! Fast! Fast!
Luo Feng’s entire soul seemed to have infused into the Blood Ghost Blade he wielded. Light of Water and Fire! Light of Water and Fire! Light of Water and Fire! Light of Water and Fire! Light of Water and Fire! Light of Water and Fire!
Blade rays like water carried a formidable power, and this power seemed to be faintly on the rise. Under the ultimate limit, Luo Feng’s comprehension of blade techniques was unexpectedly on the rise, and yet, at that very moment, he had not noticed it at all. All his focus was concentrated on the eight-hooved beast true god before him as he tried his best to kill it in the shortest time possible.
“No, no…” The eight-hooved beast true god was stunned.
Almost instantly, over 100 blade rays were raining down on it, hacking onto it successively, causing it to weaken at an insane rate. It was flustered. It was terrified. It longed to escape!
The eight-hooved beast true god was no longer holding onto any traces of desire to kill Luo Feng. It didn’t care how this law master could wield such strong combat powers; it only wanted to escape and survive! However, before Luo Feng’s ominous close-combat techniques, even simply escaping was too much to ask for.
There was no escape!
“I’ll kill, kill, kill…!” Luo Feng was beyond insanity as a blurry, gigantic blade figure appeared. His entire being seemed to have merged as one with Blood Ghost Blade, and the blade rays were like ocean waves crashing down on the eight-hooved beast true god. With each passing second, hundreds and thousands of blade rays kept roaring away, annihilating everything in a frenzied manner.
This was a storm—a storm that would annihilate everything. There was no escape! There was no way it could be stopped! No chance of gaining an advantage over it!
Not only was the eight-hooved beast true god being knocked senseless, but even the several dozen true gods who had discovered Luo Feng and were now flying over were stunned.
“How is it possible?”
“If he only had impressive skills in dodging, so be it. But how can it be that his attacks are also…?”
“How can he be so powerful? His blade must be an automaton-type treasure. It must be!”
They were all in denial, unable to accept the fact that in a one-on-one confrontation, a true god could be defeated by a law master. They could only accept one explanation… This law master must have used an automaton type treasure, and that blade was an automaton-type treasure!
Through the central operation of the automaton machine within it, the blade was able to release an outburst of combat power that far surpassed what a law master was supposedly capable of.
“This must be the case.”
On the faraway true god level battlefield, the captain, who had been silently lying low in ambush was in great shock as he watched everything happening with wide eyes.
Earlier on, when he saw Luo Feng charging out, he had shaken his head, albeit in a most discreet manner. He found this new recruit, Milky River, to be foolish and arrogant to attempt to belittle the power of a true god. After all, even a captain like himself, wielding an automaton-type treasure, might only have a small chance of killing that true god. But the time spent trying to do so would, in turn, cause him to be entrapped by the other true gods.
“He is going to die, for sure,” the captain had said.
At the time, he had been convicted. But right now—
“How—how could…?” The captain was flabbergasted. He was unable to fathom how a new recruit could be so powerful—powerful enough to suppress a true god! That was absolute suppression! Even if it was the most ordinary kind of true god, the outcome should not be far from the norm. “It must be an automaton-type treasure. Before he joined the army, he already had an automaton type treasure with him: his battle blade. That must be it. It must be. That blade must be the reason his power can soar by multiple levels. That is how he can completely suppress this beast true god.”
The brutal fighting was ongoing within the true god level battlefield. Over 1,000 true gods had noticed that, at the farthest region at the edge of the battlefield, there was another battle going on between an ordinary-level, eight-hooved beast true god from their side and a mere law master. The fact, placed right before their very eyes, was that the law master was attacking with such fervor that the true god was left with no room for retaliation.
“That blade must be an automaton-type treasure.”
“It must be.”
Almost every one of them was sure of this.
Blood Ghost Blade was a blade embryo; thus, it was extremely precious. However, it merely raised Luo Feng’s attacks by a single level—not as what everyone else had thought to be as a couple of levels. Luo Feng was powerful because of his close-combat techniques, his mastery of the first two volumes of Extermination, and his comprehension of Light of Water and Fire.
Streams of blade rays that resembled water ripples crashed into the eight-hooved beast true god like crazy. These blade rays were approaching a state of perfection. Under the influence of such endless blade rays, the eight-hooved beast true god was getting more and more helpless. It was no longer able to put up such a strong resistance.
Suddenly, the eight-hooved beast true god felt a sensation arising within his chest. This time around, it might really have to face annihilation.
“I am, rightfully, a true god!” The eight-hooved beast true god was roaring furiously in its mind.
Hong! Hong! Hong!
The endless blade rays enshrouded everything around them. The eight-hooved beast true god finally breathed its last breath as its life core disintegrated, and it was reduced to annihilation. Its armor and some other items speedily broke away from it, and Luo Feng quickly waved his arm to claim the armor. He also claimed the other items breaking apart from the annihilated true god.
Luo Feng transformed into a streak of flowing light right away and escaped as far as he could. As for the area where the fighting took place, although earlier on, most of the purple vines had snapped and fallen onto the surface of the marsh. There was no longer a single trace of them to be found.
A true god was annihilated! The law master had won!
And more than 30 beast true god corpses were all his to take!
From the faraway true god level battlefield, a powerful beast true god with three sharp, golden horns, roared in rage, “After him! Get the corpses of my brothers of Nine Smoke Marsh by any means!”
