Chapter 1579 – Fish In A Net
The monk slowly opened his eyes and walked towards Mu Yu. The monk’s expression was very calm. After arriving 50 steps away from Mu Yu, the monk gave a salute.
Mu Yu also bowed towards the monk. Then he took out his weapon and went into his stance. Meanwhile, the monk was calmly waiting for Mu Yu to make a move. Looking at the monk’s body, Mu Yu couldn’t help but feel a hint of danger. He no longer waited and immediately made a move.
Flower petals began flying out of Mu Yu’s hand and attacked the monk. As Mu Yu made his move, the monk slowly took one step forward.
However, this one step brought the monk directly in front of Mu Yu. At the same time, his right hand delivered a punch towards Mu Yu. His moves were calm, fast, as if doing it casually.
But Mu Yu was already prepared for this move. His body moved at the same time the monk took a step forward. His body shifted a hundred meters on the side. At the same time, flower petals began to surround Mu Yu’s body.
What Mu Yu didn’t expect was that the monk simply didn’t care about the flower petals. Just like before, he sent another attack towards Mu Yu. As the flower petals cut towards the monk’s body, they just made sparks, they were useless.
Seeing this, Tang Yaoen’s expression couldn’t help but change. He didn’t expect the monk’s body cultivation to be this formidable. It must be known that Mu Yu’s artifact was famous in the Hundred Treasures Realm. Most artifacts weren’t a match against Mu Yu’s weapon. Tang Yaoen didn’t expect that this artifact would have no effect against the monk.
Mu Yu also noticed this point. He flew back and took out another artifact. It was a needle-type artifact, a fake spirit snake needle.
Although this spirit snake needle was only an imitation, its offensive strength couldn’t be underestimated. Zhao Hai made a lot of these fake spirit snake needles, so Mu Yu had a lot of it in his hands.
Normally, Mu Yu wouldn’t use it. This was because he knew that he couldn’t display the peak strength of the spirit snake needle. Additionally, fake spirit snake needles have a very short lifespan, so Mu Yu didn’t like to use them.
However, Mu Yu was left with no choice. The monk’s defense was just too strong. His own sword couldn’t do anything to him. Because of this, he could only take the fake spirit snake needle out.
When the monk saw the spirit snake needle, his pupils shrank. He felt the danger coming from the spirit snake needle. He couldn’t help but be more cautious.
Although Mu Yu was using a fake spirit snake needle and it was as mobile as the original, its agility couldn’t compare to cultivators. Mu Yu could only use the spirit snake needle defensively. He couldn’t do anything to the monk.
Looking at the monk’s movements, Zhao Hai immediately knew that the monk was using a Body Cultivation Method that utilizes Faith Power. The monk certainly has his spiritual qi strengthened by faith power. Otherwise, it would be impossible for him to block Mu Yu’s Flower Rain Sword.
This discovery caused Zhao Hai’s pupils to shrink. He didn’t expect the monk to use faith power. This was rare. It must be known that it wasn’t easy to cultivate Faith Power Cultivation methods. Without Faith Power, cultivating this method was impossible. Naturally, if you can practice it, your strength would be leagues further compared to those who used normal cultivation methods.
Zhao Hai now knew why the people of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield couldn’t defeat the people of the Sky Tower. This side actually had Faith Power Cultivation Methods. People who cultivate ordinary Cultivation Methods were bound to lose.
Zhao Hai could see that although Mu Yu was holding on, he was actually being pushed back. Zhao Hai couldn’t help but snort as he took a step forward and appeared in front of the monk.
The monk was also guarding against Zhao Hai. Seeing Zhao Hai appear in front of him, the monk wasn’t surprised and just sent a fist towards him.
Zhao Hai smiled faintly as he captured the monk’s fist and then proceeded to send a kick towards his abdomen. The monk’s facial expression changed. He knew how strong his fist was, but Zhao Hai was able to effortlessly capture it. The monk didn’t dare receive Zhao Hai’s kick. His body moved and retreated.
Zhao Hai looked at the monk and then opened his mouth and said, “Big Brother Mu, you go back first. I’ll deal with this monk.”
Mu Yu nodded and said, “Alright, I’ll give him to you.” Then he slowly retreated to the back.
Zhao Hai looked at the monk and said, “You’re quite strong. You have Faith Power, right? Let me experience it.” Then Zhao Hai waved his fist towards the monk.
The monk’s expression turned serious as he went into his stance. Both sides were 50 steps away from each other. There was a small pause before the monk took a step forward towards Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai welcomed the monk’s attack and then the two proceeded to fight using their hands and feet. Their way of combat caused Tang Yaoen and Luo Ying to be dumbfounded.
Luo Ying was very clear about the monk’s strength. The monk was very strong, especially in close-combat. Who would have expected Zhao Hai to also be formidable in hand-to-hand combat. He was able to fight equally with the monk.
What Luo Ying and the others didn’t now was that Zhao Hai was using four Buddhist Techniques as he fought against the monk. Altogether, he used the Demon Subjugation Technique, Descending Dragon Technique, Crouching Tiger Technique, and the Cosmos Technique.
The Cosmos Technique was the sole movement technique among the 18 Buddhist Techniques. Zhao Hai wasn’t able to use it in the past but now he was able to use it against the monk. The monk’s body movement technique was also very good. If Zhao Hai didn’t use a movement technique then he wouldn’t be the monk’s opponent.
Meanwhile, the monk couldn’t help but be startled. He practiced body cultivation his entire life. Moreover, he was using a Faith Power Cultivation Method. This caused his attacks to be formidable. He didn’t expect to see someone who could block his attacks today. He could even faintly sense that Zhao Hai’s attacks were more powerful. How could this not stun him?
The exchange between the two became quicker and quicker and their attacks were also becoming heavier. Although the monk practiced body cultivation his entire life, he couldn’t compare to Zhao Hai’s abnormal body. Unexpectedly, the monk was beginning to be pushed back.
Luo Ying looked at Zhao Hai in disbelief. He couldn’t believe that there would be a person who could stay toe-to-toe with the monk. It was totally unimaginable.
Although Luo Ying was much stronger compared to the monk, he knew clearly how strong the monk was. Even in this place, the monk was among the top Severed Soul Experts. Zhao Hai was actually able to fight even with him.
Zhao Hai didn’t care about anyone’s thoughts. His actions became faster and faster and his hits became heavier. The monk could only retreat. At this moment, the monk pulled his bead necklace out. Upon waving it, the bead necklace turned into a whip. Then the monk waved his whip and attacked Zhao Hai.
Seeing this, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but laugh as he said, “Is it time to use weapons? Good, then let me play with you.” After he said that, he waved his hand and took out a long iron staff before striking the monk with it.
The two changed from fighting with their hands and feet to fighting with weapons. However, it was still close-combat. Any mistake made by either of them might turn fatal. Tang Yaoen looked at the fight with peak attention.
The monk couldn’t help but feel bitter. He didn’t expect Zhao Hai to be this formidable. Zhao Hai even had a formidable weapon with him.
After the two fought for some time, Zhao Hai coldly snorted and said, “I’ve played enough. It’s time to end.” Then he waved his hand, releasing a large number of flying swords around him. These flying swords immediately arranged themselves into a sword formation, trapping the monk inside. The monk found that every time he moved, he would expend a large amount of spiritual qi. This caused his expression to turn ugly.
Moreover, the monk discovered that the swords had disappeared and he seems to be inside an interstellar space. Then the planets around him began to exert pressure on him. He felt that he could no longer move. He has been tied down.
Then the illusion around him vanished. The monk was like a fish in a net. Zhao Hai stood not far away from the monk, looking at him with a smile on his face.
Zhao Hai smiled faintly, then he turned his head to Luo Ying and said, “Senior Luo Ying, we’ve won. Can we go up now?”
Luo Ying gave Zhao Hai a complex look as he replied, “Good. Let me lead you there.” Then he led the three towards a stone slab. Unexpectedly, this slab was actually a transmission formation.
The four got on the transmission formation and disappeared along with a flash of light. When they arrived at the second layer, Zhao Hai and Mu Yu couldn’t help but stare.
Zhao Hai looked at the surroundings and couldn’t help but be amazed. The surroundings were too strange. There was no light in all four directions. Besides the flash of light from the transmission formation, everything was pitch black.
Not only was the surrounding black, it also isolated one’s spiritual force. For experts like Zhao Hai and Mu Yu, their spiritual force was limited to a hundred meters.
After looking around him, Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Interesting. Brother Mu, let’s have a look.” Mu Yu gave a heavy nod. He now understood that the people of the Sky Tower held the home advantage. They can literally change the environment of the tower in order to suit their combat needs.
Although this was just a guess, Mu Yu was fairly sure that this was the case. Zhao Hai didn’t care about this as he stepped out of the transmission formation. Then he waved his hand and sent out lightning from his hand. Then a storm formed, causing the surroundings to light up.
Zhao Hai’s move caused Luo Ying’s eyes to feel uncomfortable. He couldn’t help but narrow his eyes. Then at this time, Zhao Hai felt a sharp aura going straight towards his head.
Zhao Hai waved his hand and released a white light. When the light disappeared, the sharp aura on his head also disappeared.
Zhao Hai opened his mouth and said, “Brother Mu, take care of your surroundings.” Mu Yu responded and immediately took his weapon out. Then he surrounded his body with flower petals.
Zhao Hai flew up as his body began to shine. At the same time, he took out a lot of flying swords that also lit up, acting like light tubes in the air. In an instant, the area around Zhao Hai was lit up. Although it couldn’t compare to the outside, it was enough to see things.
At this time, Zhao Hai and Mu Yu were standing in the middle of the sword formation. Zhao Hai looked around him as he sneered and said, “It’s a sneak attack. Let me see how they do it.”
Zhao Hai let Mu Yu to move forward. At the same time, Zhao Hai continued to release silver needles in order to look for his opponent.
Before long, Zhao Hai discovered that the surrounding area wasn’t flat, but it was like a hill. It was also floating and unsteady. The suppression was very powerful. Even the Space was unable to see very far. Zhao Hai could only use the silver needles to explore. However, he still hasn’t found anyone yet.
As Zhao Hai was looking around, he suddenly felt a dangerous aura coming towards Mu Yu. Zhao Hai coldly snorted as his Stellar Transformations Sword Formation moved. It emitted golden light and began to put pressure on the surroundings.
At this time, Zhao Hai saw Mu Yu’s shadow twist before a black rapier pierced Mu Yu’s stomach. Mu Yu also discovered this rapier, but it was too late for him to dodge. Fortunately, Zhao Hai was able to move and block the attack. Then the shadow disappeared followed by a strange laughter.
Zhao Hai’s eyes turned bright as he said, “A Divergent Ability user. Interesting. I didn’t expect to meet a divergent ability user at this time. Brother Mu, be careful. The guy can hide in the shadows to attack people.”
Mu Yu’s heart rate couldn’t help but increase. What happened scared him. The other party was actually able to kill using shadows. He wasn’t even able to respond in time.
Zhao Hai coldly snorted and waved his hand as he said, “Scatter!” Along with his order, his flying swords split into flying needles.
Then these needles lit up much brighter than before. Moreover, it lit up everything in the surroundings to the point where there were no shadows.
