Chapter 1800: Laws of Strength
This time, when Jian Chen’s sword Qi stabbed Wayner Yan’s hand, there was actually the screeching of metal. Wayner Yan’s hand had reached an unimaginable level of toughness.
Jian Chen’s eyes narrowed slightly as he looked at Wayner Yan in surprise. An extremely great force was emitted from Wayner Yan’s palm, passing through the sword Qi Jian Chen had condensed and directly into his arm.
The sword Qi immediately dulled. The great force rushed up rapidly and turned his sleeve to tatters. Even he could not help but take a step back from the great force.
“Laws of Strength,” Jian Chen murmured as a gleam of light flashed through his eyes. The Laws of Strength represented the strength of the world. Those who had comprehended this law possessed a body so tough that it had reached an unbelievable level.
Most importantly, the Laws of Strength were also known to be one of the most offensive laws.
This was because strength represented an offence, pure offence.
Wayner Yan glanced at his huge hand that flickered with bronze light. He saw a deep wound on his powerful hand. Although he had managed to stop Jian Chen’s sword Qi with his body, his hand was still injured.
Wayner Yan was secretly astonished by the wound. He did not use his full strength in the discussion hall before, so it was very natural for the sword Qi to injure him earlier.
However, he had already unleashed his full strength now. He had even used the battle skill he had learnt from the Earth Spirit sect, which strengthened his hand. Yet, it was still not enough to stop Jian Chen’s sword Qi.
The unique battle skill he had learnt from the Earth Spirit sect was created especially for those who had comprehended the Laws of Strength. Once they used the battle skill, the toughness of their bodies would be raised to a whole, new, unimaginable level. They could basically be called human weapons. It was rare for anyone at the same level to be their opponent, and they would even be able to kill people at higher cultivation levels.
Of course, that was given that they did not encounter any other prodigies with terrifying strength as well.
“I’ve underestimated the patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan. He’s stronger than I initially thought,” Wayner Yan became stern. From the clash before, he could tell that he was slightly weaker than Jian Chen.
In the distance, Xuan Dou hovered in the air as he watched the two of them clash. He was secretly amazed, “Both Wayner Yan and Jian Chen possess extraordinary strength. Most importantly, the laws that they’ve comprehended are very powerful. No wonder Wayner Yan managed to become a protector of the Earth Spirit sect. It’s all because of the Laws of Strength he has comprehended.”
“However, Wayner Yan is still a little weaker than Jian Chen. Wayner Yan’s comprehension of laws is only at early Overgod, while Jian Chen’s comprehension has probably reached mid Overgod. However, Jian Chen’s personal cultivation seems to be weaker. He hasn’t managed to reach a balance with the laws he has comprehended. He’s probably only a God right now…”
At the same time, figures flickered in the distance. The Gods had all left the provincial city and hurried over here as soon as possible. They wanted to witness the battle between two Overgods.
None of them dared to stand as close to the battle as Xuan Dou. Instead, they stood very far away at a place where they believed to be safe enough.
“Grant me strength!” Suddenly, Wayner Yan bellowed out. His body began to swell at a visible rate.
In just a single moment, he went from being less than two meters tall to being a ten-meter-tall giant. As his body swelled, his clothes expanded as well, so even though they were wrapped around him tightly, they still managed to cover his tough, burly body.
Wayner Yan’s skin became bronze after transformation. He was filled with great strength.
“Five Finger Suppression!” Wayner Yan called out. The five fingers on his right hand seemed to have become mountains as they fell towards Jian Chen with crushing might. Wherever they passed by, space would ripple.
A shockingly cold light flickered through Jian Chen’s eyes. He wielded his sword Qi as he charged towards Wayner Yan’s mountainous fingers with surging might.
With a great rumble, Jian Chen's sword Qi almost sliced off one of Wayner Yan’s fingers. Currently, Wayner Yan’s four other fingers surrounded Jian Chen, while his sword Qi had dispersed after cutting into Wayner Yan’s finger.
Wayner Yan’s face remained the same as if he did not feel pain at all. The four other fingers locked down on Jian Chen. Every single one of them was extremely thick, making them seem like four pillars that sealed off all the directions Jian Chen could escape in.
“Daluo Sword!” Jian Chen formed a seal, and a golden strand of sword Qi immediately condensed above his head. With a flash, the golden sword Qi shot towards the four fingers with lightning speed.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Immediately, four rumbles rang out. The golden sword Qi was extremely powerful, tearing through the four other fingers like a hot knife through butter. Powerful energy permeated the surroundings, wreaking havoc as a storm. The sea of clouds in the sky had been ripped to pieces.
However, the golden sword Qi still had not dispersed after chopping off Wayner Yan’s four other fingers. It continued onwards as a golden streak of light towards Wayner Yan under Jian Chen’s control. It moved extremely quickly.
Wayner Yan paled slightly. All his fingers were hanging loosely now, and only a flap of skin kept them from falling off. They had run out of power.
After transforming, his body had become extremely tough. However, he was still an early Overgod after all. Jian Chen’s Daluo Sword possessed extraordinary power as well, so he was naturally unable to stop it.
Wayner Yan clenched his left hand into a fist and directly hurled it out to deal with the incoming sword Qi.
The Daluo Sword had basically run out of power after severing Wayner Yan’s four fingers. It immediately collapsed from Wayner Yan’s punch, scattering as residual sword Qi.
However, just when Wayner Yan had dispersed the sword Qi, another strand of golden sword Qi shot over with lightning speed, punching through his chest in just the blink of an eye.
Wayner Yan’s body trembled violently. Blood directly spurted from his mouth as his face paled.
However, he comprehended the Laws of Strength after all. Not only was his physical strength shocking, but great power also inhabited his body. He was extremely powerful after transforming. Even though he was injured, his battle prowess was not overly affected.
“Mountain’s Imprint!” Wayner Yan bellowed out. He raised his left hand towards the sky, and a mountain immediately appeared. He grabbed it and smashed it towards Jian Chen heavily.
As the mountain fell, it rapidly expanded to the point where it could blot out the sun in a single instance. It became a towering piece of rock as it crushed down on Jian Chen.
At the same time, the mountain gave off an invisible energy. All the space in the range of the attack froze.
Jian Chen felt his body sink as if he had ended up in quicksand. He was unable to dodge the mountainous attack, so he could only take it head-on.
