Chapter 2741: Replaced
An attack like that obviously posed no threat to Jian Chen. Let alone a threat, it was not even enough for Jian Chen to bat an eye.
He nullified Kun Tian’s attack by casually emitting a strand of sword Qi. The God Tier Battle Skill Kun Tian used failed to create any waves in the battle at all.
Kun Tian was stunned. He watched all of this unfold in disbelief.
Although there were many things he had forgotten and completely responded with his instincts, he was still not an idiot after all. He could obviously sense just how startling his attack was. How could such a mighty God Tier Battle Skill only possess such insignificant power?
“How’s that possible? It’s impossible for my attack to be so weak. Why did it feel like it ran out of power towards the end?” Kun Tian murmured. He was perplexed. Even after racking his brains, he was unable to understand what had happened.
If the person before him had done something, he would sense it at the very least. However, he had sensed nothing at all.
Jian Chen’s movements paused momentarily as well. The effects of the will of the Ultimate Way of the Sword roused his excitement. He was basically ravishing with joy, because he discovered that it had not taken a particularly large toll on him to nullify the God Tier Battle Skill. At most, it would just cost him some power of his soul.
A cost like that was basically insignificant to him.
“Never had I thought, never had I actually thought that God Tier Battle Skills are actually connected with the will of the world, and the connection would be so weak. A sharp sword condensed from my ultimate will can easily sever their connection.”
“But, I wonder whether it’s only effective against the one type of God Tier Battle Skill used by Kun Tian, or against all God Tier Battle Skills. If it can overwhelm all God Tier Battle Skills in this similar fashion, I’ll have no need to fear God Tier Battle Skills at all when my battle with the Primordial realm experts of the Darkstar race erupts…”
“However, the Darkstar World is different from the Saints’ World. One’s a complete, major world created, naturally, while the other’s a smaller world formed from a planetary beast. My ultimate will can destroy God Tier Battle Skills in the Darkstar World, but that doesn’t mean I can do the same in the Saints’ World.”
“However, it’s more than enough even if it’s only in the Darkstar World…” Jian Chen thought quickly, already planning to find other Primordial realm experts to test it on.
Being effective against one God Tier Battle Skill did not mean it was effective against all God Tier Battle Skills. After all, there were various types of God Tier Battle Skills, so he still needed to experiment around.
“Have you been using tricks secretly?” Kun Tian stared at Jian Chen in surprise as he asked in doubt. Fortunately he did not have his complete memory, or his heart would probably be churning right now.
This was because almost all cultivators knew that nothing like this could happen to God Tier Battle Skills after they had been launched. It was impossible for them to be roaring with power one moment, suppressing the surroundings with the might of the world, before losing all of their power in the next moment, becoming the most ordinary attack.
Clearly, Kun Tian refused to believe it. Energy surged from his body as he used another God Tier Battle Skill, “Darkstar Imperial Technique—Void Destruction!”
Jian Chen wanted to test whether his ultimate will was effective against other God Tier Battle Skills as well, so he was more than happy to see Kun Tian cast a second God Tier Battle Skill.
As a Sixth Heavenly Layer Infinite Prime, Kun Tian obviously used God Tier Battle Skills extremely quickly. He basically completed it instantly. Immediately, pressure flooded the surroundings and another God Tier Battle Skill condensed, crushing towards Jian Chen with enough power to destroy everything.
The God Tier Battle Skill this time was even more powerful than the last. A huge pedestal appeared in the air, radiating with heavy pressure. Wherever it passed by, space would shatter and turn into chaos.
Jian Chen’s eyes shone extremely brightly. He had become restless a long time ago. With some eagerness and some urgency, he condensed an invisible sword once again and slashed with it.
The pedestal condensed from the God Tier Battle Skill fell extremely quickly, but Jian Chen’s ultimate will was even faster. Following that vague feeling, the invisible sword severed the connection between the God Tier Battle Skill and the world once more.
Immediately, the God Tier Battle Skill that was radiating with pressure and destructive power deflated like a balloon. All of its might vanished, turning the startling God Tier Battle Skill into the most simple energy attack.
“Impossible, it’s impossible…” This time, Kun Tian became completely speechless. It was possible that his initial failure originated from making a mistake somewhere during the process, but he had clearly been much more diligent when casting it the second time. He had used everything he had, yet the result was no different. As a result, he was left utterly perplexed despite racking his brain.
This was because he could tell that Jian Chen did nothing at all. His God Tier Battle Skill had just collapsed strangely.
His God Tier Battle Skill was not the only thing that had collapsed. So had his confidence.
After all, using a God Tier Battle Skill came at quite the cost. Casting God Tier Battle Skills twice and failing both times came with such a great cost that even a Sixth Heavenly Layer Infinite Prime could not ignore.
However, Jian Chen’s face was filled with joy. He had actually succeeded with the second time. He had succeeded twice, consecutively, which convinced him of the reality that his ultimate will could suppress God Tier Battle Skills.
He no longer wasted any more time after this. He immediately attacked Kun Tian.
Without any God Tier Battle Skills, Kun Tian’s threat to Jian Chen reduced once again. However, despite that, his battle prowess was still extremely great. Using his two god artifacts, he engaged in a battle of high intensity against Jian Chen in the Land of Soul Destruction.
Jian Chen was in no hurry to kill Kun Tian. Instead, he paid close attention to the way Kun Tian fought as well as the certain aspects he was skilled in. However, as the battle continued, he also discovered that his ultimate will was only effective against God Tier Battle Skills. It was useless against the secret techniques of the Darkstar race.
Before long, Jian Chen and Kun Tian had already been fighting for four hours. They had crossed tens of thousand kilometers in the meantime. The entire Land of Soul Destruction churned with their battle. The lingering slivers of consciousness from the planetary beast wreaked havoc in the surroundings, rushing into their heads from time to time and bombarding their souls.
Suddenly, Jian Chen froze. A deafening roar exploded into his head, shaking up his soul like a candle flame in the wind.
He had been attacked by the slivers of consciousness once again, and it was much more powerful than before. It caused his consciousness to blur for an instant.
At the same time, he felt a sense of danger. Jian Chen immediately retreated without second thought. The Laws of Space pulsed around him and he retreated to a hundred meters away instantly like he had teleported.
Basically in the moment Jian Chen had vanished, a resplendent streak of light slashed over. It had basically brushed past his forehead. He had dodged it hazardously.
Even though Jian Chen had dodged it successfully, the sharp sword Qi struck his body, making him feel like he was being stabbed by needles. The mask on his face shattered under the sword qi, revealing his hidden face.
Looking at the somewhat familiar yet also extremely unfamiliar face, Kun Tian showed doubt. However, he still cried out subconsciously, “Duff, it’s actually you! Impossible, this is impossible! You’re clearly just a Second Heavenly Layer Infinite Prime! How did you become so powerful suddenly?”
“D- d- don’t tell me you’ve been constantly hiding your strength these years?”
Jian Chen’s current appearance was not his own. Instead, it was the Second Heavenly Layer Infinite Prime’s that he had seen in the imperial city who left through the teleportation formation for Darknight City.
The ‘Duff’ in Kun Tian’s eyes smiled strangely and said mysteriously, “Hall master, there’s no need for you to know so much.”
With that, the sword Qi in Jian Chen’s hand stabbed towards Kun Tian from afar. When he launched the attack, the sword Qi along with part of his arm vanished, as if it had fused into the space there.
“Shadowless Lifetaking Strike!”
Kun Tian suddenly shuddered, before immediately turning pale. His eyes widened, filled with disbelief, confusion, doubt and so on. A spurt of blood erupted from his mouth with pieces of his organs.
All he felt was an extremely powerful strand of sword Qi tearing through the defences of his divine armour somehow, appearing silently in his body and directly erupting in there, destroying most of his vitality and instantly heavily injuring him.
That was not all. The sword Qi that had suddenly appeared in his body actually flowed upwards after shredding his organs, directly rushing towards the soul in his head. Wherever the sword Qi passed by, his body would be reduced to a bloody mess.
“No!” In that moment, the battle-seasoned Kun Tian became frantic. He even showed fear, because the sword Qi was just too powerful and just too fast. He mobilised all the energy in his body to obstruct it, but the sword Qi pierced through it all. Even when he wanted to do something else, the sword Qi would be just too fast, so it was impossible for him to make it in time.
Just as the sword Qi was about to reach his soul, Kun Tian made up his mind with no other choice, immediately abandoning his body and emerging with his soul. He did not linger around afterwards, fleeing towards the entrance of the Land of Soul Destruction as quickly as he could.
Right now, he did not have any additional time to think. All of his reactions were based off his instincts.
It was as if at a time like this, only a single path laid in front of him. This was the instinctive reaction embedded in the depths of his soul.
“Look at how weak you’ve become after abandoning your body,” Jian Chen sighed emotionally. Since Kun Tian had abandoned his body, only death would be waiting for him. Even if the Darkstar Emperor was here, he would not be able to save him.
Let alone the Darkstar Emperor, even if Grand Primes were present, death awaited Kun Tian as long as his soul had not been protected by their power.
“Destroy.” Jian Chen said gently. He did not seem to do anything, but Kun Tian’s soul that had already fled to several dozen kilometers away emitted a miserable shriek, before directly dispersing.
Jian Chen’s ultimate will enveloped a region of a hundred thousand kilometers. In this range, he controlled the world, as if he was the absolute ruler there. With a single thought, he could determine the fates of countless Godkings.
That was because Godkings could not oppose Jian Chen’s will of the Ultimate Way of the Sword.
If Kun Tian’s body remained, Jian Chen could do nothing to him with his ultimate will. However, he was so puny as a soul. Any Godking could easily destroy his soul, so Jian Chen only needed to condense a strand of sword Qi from the air with the power of his Ultimate Way of the Sword to easily kill him.
“Even if you die, I’ll make you die in confusion.” Jian Chen touched his face. He had obviously purposefully assumed Duff’s identity for killing Kun Tian. He still did not have a complete understanding of the methods of the Darkstar race, so just in case, he had to take some precautions.
Afterwards, Jian Chen arrived before Kun Tian corpse and removed his armor and sword without any hesitation at all. Kun Tian’s Space Ring obviously ended up on Jian Chen’s finger as well.
Jian Chen studied Kun Tian’s appearance and stature carefully. Afterwards, his appearance changed once again. In just a few seconds, he had assumed Kun Tian’s appearance.
It was not just his appearance. Even his stature was exactly the same. He seemed identical to Kun Tian when he was alive, without the slightest flaw.
After destroying the corpse and the traces of battle, Jian Chen sat down on the spot to refine the armor and sword.
He knew these two god artifacts were basically symbolic of Kun Tian, so he needed to grasp them.
