Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1737
The Battle that Decides the Life and Death
The Taijitu in his sea of consciousness was circulating more and more intensely. The Nine Heavenly Astral Slashes was clearly imprinted on the diagram in Jiang Chen’s mind.
“The Great Divination Art is surely terrifying. It can copy the opponent’s combat technique. Moreover, as my cultivation base continue to advance and my understanding of the Great Divination Art continues to improve, the more substantial the replication becomes. It’s even possible for it to be used as an Immortal Weapon.”
Jiang Chen was incomparably contented. The Great Divination Art had given him such a huge surprise. This round of battle had flustered the opponent, and brought him inconceivable benefits. Presently, the Taijitu was merely an illusory diagram. As the Great Divination Art continue to advance and develop, it would certainly become more and more powerful. When that time came, it could even construct a terrifying immortal weapon that can be used as a natal magical treasure.
There was only the last stage of Great Divination Art—the Divination Realm—that Jiang Chen didn’t dare think about as this would entirely depend on luck. He felt contented enough to be able to reach the Heavenly Will realm. Since, there were some things which one couldn’t overly demand, it was extremely important to always keep a peaceful mind.
“So this is just how powerful the Nine Heavenly Astral Slash is,” Jiang Chen said plainly.
This simple word undoubtedly hurt Tian Yue’s dignity once more, giving him the impulse to cough up blood. The Nine Heavenly Astral Slash was his own combat technique that he was most proud of, however it had been disdained by his opponent today. What made him even more depressed was that Jiang Chen was able to use the same attack to counter his own.
“Dammit! I won’t believe that you are really powerful enough to imitate my Nine Heavenly Astral Slash.”
Tian Yue’s eyes went red, gritting his teeth. As the qi from his body intensified, the heavenly astral qi on his palms grew thicker and more brilliant. Horrifying blade-like light was colliding with one another, creating clangs and strands of fiery sparks in the void.
“The second slash!”
Tian Yue shouted and abruptly launched the second strike of the Nine Heavenly Astral Slash. The powerful heavenly astral qi divided into two heavenly blades and charged at Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen’s eyes sparkled. The instant Tian Yue struck, an imprint was formed on the Taijitu. Similarly, it was the blade light. As the circulation of Taijitu increased, the speed of replicating the combat technique increased as well. The process was almost instantaneous.
Jiang Chen slashed both palms forward, striking out the same attack, the second strike of the Nine Heavenly Astral Slash. The scene was just like before. Both attacks collided against each other. The void around broke apart. The qi of destruction spread across the void.
“No!” Tian Yue bellowed.
He now had a feeling of going insane. His mind was in complete chaos. He simply couldn’t accept that his second attack was copied again by Jiang Chen.
If the first was an accident, a similar accident surely wouldn’t happen twice in a row.
“My God, are my eyes still functioning well? Jiang Chen has just used the second form of the Nine Heavenly Astral Slash. It’s completely the same as the first as though it came from the same person. This is simply miraculous!”
“How can he be so abnormal? If the situation goes on like this, I’m afraid Tian Yue will lose today.”
“I think his defeat is already certain. Have you all not noticed that Jiang Chen’s actions have completely affected Tian Yue’s mind? I’m afraid that he can no longer display his full combat strength. Moreover, up until now, Jiang Chen hasn’t revealed his own strength yet. How horrifying!”
Countless of people were shocked, it was certainly not a coincidence. The only explanation was that Jiang Chen was just too terrifying.
On Great Qian Empire’s side, Yang Yu and Dongfang Yu were also shocked by the situation. Even Yang Bufan didn’t know that Jiang Chen had such an incredible technique.
“When did Little Chen learn such a secret art? That’s too terrifying,” commented Yang Bufan. Although he had witnessed loads of miraculous incidents created by Jiang Chen, what Jiang Chen did today was a little hard for him to accept.
“Tian Yue is finished,” Yang Yu added with a smile.
Dongfang Yu who was next to him was also wearing a smile. Given their eyesight, they could naturally discern the current situation. Tian Yue’s mind was in chaos. He was no longer fit to fight. This was because the experience he had was different from Jiang Chen. Jiang Chen, who often walked between life and death, had the disposition and battle experience that was beyond people’s imagination.
“Jiang Chen! This is not possible! Let’s see if you still can copy my technique if I use all of the forms of my Nine Heavenly Astral Slash consecutively!”
Tian Yue had gone mad. He was going to display all of his techniques without reservation. He wanted to kill Jiang Chen with this massive blow. He certainly wouldn’t believe that Jiang Chen could copy all of the forms of the Nine Heavenly Astral Slash under such a short time frame.
“I will give you the chance to do it.”
Jiang Chen kept the Taijitu, no longer using the Great Divination Art. He wasn’t remotely interested in the Nine Heavenly Astral Slash. He only had two objectives in copying the first two attacks. One was to mess up the other party’s mind. Second was to test the power of Taijitu.
Now that these two objectives had been achieved, there was no need for him to be polite with Tian Yue anymore.
Next would be the time to decide who would live.
*Whoosh…* *Whoosh…* *Whoosh…*
Tian Yue moved. His speed was incredibly fast. Innumerable streams of heavenly astral qi had been struck out in the blink of an eye. The remaining seven slashes were launched out in one shot. The gap in launching each strike was incomparably tight. The power of each strike was greater than the previous. The whole scene seemed like a sea of tides, rolling skywards. Terrifying heavenly astral qi formed a giant net, enshrouding the entire battlefield.
The scene was extremely frightening. Many people were shuddering with fear. They were afraid that only Jiang Chen could deal with such a powerful barrage of attacks.
As a matter of fact, people with discerning eyes could see that although Tian Yue’s attacks were powerful, due to his loss of focus, flaws were visible in each of his attacks. He didn’t display the strength he supposed to have.
Jiang Chen shook his head. Tian Yue’s pitiful condition could no longer be a threat to him.
“Bring it on. Don’t delay any longer. It’s just the right time for me to test the power of the Slaughter Dragon Seal. Your death is considered worthwhile if you die under my dragon seal,” Jiang Chen shouted.
