Chapter 1903 – Breakthrough In Battle
Zhao Hai frowned as he looked at the mountain. He was an ability user, so he understood that abilities had nothing to do with the owner’s cultivation. It was built onto the user’s body. The ability would only become stronger the more the user utilizes it.
It was precisely because they were born with the ability that ability users were very hard to deal with. Although Zhao Hai could find that person using the Space, he wanted to find other ways to solve the problem.
After thinking for some time, Zhao Hai still couldn’t find other methods to deal with that cultivator. He couldn’t help but sight. It seems like it wouldn’t be easy to find that person without using the Space. As he thought of that, Zhao Hai headed towards the mountain.
As he walked up the mountain, Zhao Hai used his golden spiritual force to see if the people of the Soaring Dragon Realm were paying attention to him.
It has to be recognized that the golden spiritual force was very powerful. Zhao Hai already used the golden spiritual force multiple times. However, it didn’t decrease at all. It maintained itself and even seemed to become more solid than before.
When the golden spiritual force appeared inside him, it was in the form of a golden mist. But now, the golden spiritual force had traces of becoming a golden thread. This was out of Zhao Hai’s expectations.
Once in a while, Zhao Hai would use the golden spiritual force to see if the people of the Soaring Dragon Realm were monitoring him. This has become Zhao Hai’s habit. Therefore, while he was walking up the mountain, he used the golden spiritual force to see if he was being monitored.
But to Zhao Hai’s surprise, as he used the golden spiritual force, he immediately felt a very obscure trace of spiritual force on the mountain. Zhao Hai was stunned for a moment before he understood. This faint spiritual force should belong to the greatsword-wielding cultivator.
This discovery caused Zhao Hai to be happy. He didn’t expect his golden spiritual force to be so formidable. He spent half a day thinking how to deal with the enemy’s ability only to come up with nothing. Seeing the golden spiritual force working was truly a surprise.
However, Zhao Hai didn’t show his surprise on his face. He continued to move up the mountain. In the eyes of other people, Zhao Hai would seem cautious as he trekked up the mountain. It seems like he was afraid of being attacked.
As Zhao Hai walked forward, he was also paying attention to the location of the target. He was now getting closer and closer to the cultivator. The distance between the two was now less than two li (1 km).
Zhao Hai continued to pretend that he hadn’t discovered the other party. It didn’t take long for Zhao Hai to close the distance of two li. Now, Zhao Hai and the target were less than a hundred meters apart. But Zhao Hai knew that this wasn’t the best distance to attack. Although nobody survived going up the mountain, the cultivator should be aware that those who survived for more than 10 days weren’t easy to deal with. A distance of 100 meters wasn’t a lot for cultivators, but it was enough for them to react to any situation. Therefore, the hidden cultivator didn’t make a move.
Zhao Hai continued to move forward. 90 meters, 80 meters, 70 meters…… When Zhao Hai was about 30 meters away, the person finally made a move. Zhao Hai felt the earth element around him move before his body became very heavy.
Shortly after that, Zhao Hai saw a person holding a greatsword slashing towards him. This person was wearing yellow clothing and was quite big. He was about two meters tall and had the build of a gladiator. In his hands was a greatsword about 2 meters long. It was purple and was made of an unknown material.
Seeing the person appear, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but laugh as he said, “I have been waiting for you.” After he said that, Zhao Hai lit up with yellow light. Then a yellow glaive appeared in his hand. The glaive was quite huge. It was more than 4 meters long. Zhao Hai hoisted the glaive up and then slashed down towards the other party. It was as if the change of gravity didn’t affect him at all.
As soon as the person heard Zhao Hai, he knew that the situation wasn’t going as well as he hoped. Seeing Zhao Hai’s glaive, he immediately shouted as he redirected his slash to block the glaive.
Dang! After a large bang, the greatsword got in contact with Zhao Hai’s glaive. However, the cultivator was thrown back by Zhao Hai. At the same time, Zhao Hai was very surprised. It must be known that Zhao Hai wasn’t physically weak. He even gained a giant’s strength from subduing Heavenly Demons. Even if Zhao Hai doesn’t use any techniques, his own strength was something that ordinary transcending tribulation experts couldn’t block.
However, the target actually blocked his attack. Although the enemy was still knocked back, Zhao Hai knew that the enemy wasn’t injured at all.
Despite his surprise, Zhao Hai didn’t stop. He continued to wield his glaive as he released his killing intent. Zhao Hai also felt a powerful spiritual force locking onto him. This meant that the people of the Soaring Dragon Realm were looking at the battle.
The target flew back using his earth-element ability. Then huge rocks shot up from the ground and shot towards Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai laughed. He waved his glaive and released a blade qi. All of the rocks were smashed by the blade qi. Then Zhao Hai charged towards the enemy once more.
At this time, after dispersing Zhao Hai’s attack, the cultivator also charged towards Zhao Hai.
It has to be recognized that Zhao Hai’s enemy was very strong. This strength wasn’t from his techniques, nor was it due to the greatsword. Instead, it was because of the unity between his divergent ability and attacks.
This person doesn’t have a dao avatar, but his attacks were much stronger than cultivators with dao avatars. This was because the person’s earth-element ability as well as techniques were perfectly united. The ability could even change the gravity around the cultivator as well as produce a shield. The ability’s nature also caused the cultivator’s movements to be very strange. If the opponent wasn’t Zhao Hai, then the enemy’s tempo would have already been disrupted.
Zhao Hai wasn’t anxious to kill his enemy. To be honest, Zhao Hai didn’t use his special abilities much in the past. He was just too strong that there wasn’t any need to change his methods. Even the techniques that he created for himself only contained very few aspects of his special abilities.
But now, Zhao Hai was able to see a person having an ingenious way to use their special ability. Because of this, Zhao Hai wasn’t anxious to finish the battle. He wanted to study the enemy’s methods to gain experience.
On the other hand, Zhao Hai’s opponent became more frightened the more he fought Zhao Hai. He didn’t expect to meet someone like Zhao Hai.
However, the cultivator didn’t give up. He knew that giving up means that he would be killed. Therefore, he didn’t stop and attacked with all of his strength. He wanted to defeat Zhao Hai as soon as possible.
Zhao Hai also noticed that his enemy’s attacks had become more and more powerful. Although the moves were fiercer, they didn’t become chaotic. Zhao Hai couldn’t help but commend his enemy’s prowess in battle.
At this time, Zhao Hai felt the aura of his enemy undergoing an unexpected change. The aura continued to rise as the attacks increased in strength. After attacking ten times, the attack has reached another level of strength. Zhao Hai’s opponent couldn’t help but fall back and laugh. As he held his greatsword, he looked at Zhao Hai and said, “I didn’t think that I would break through. Hahaha. I have to thank you. If it weren’t for our battle, I wouldn’t have been able to advance. Because of you, I have reached the immortal stage. You will be the first person I kill after entering the immortal stage. You should feel honored.”
Zhao Hai propped his glaive up as he looked at his opponent. Then he smiled faintly and said, “Good. I didn’t expect our fight to cause you to break through. But even if you have reached the immortal stage, it would still be impossible for you to kill me. Especially now that you have just advanced. You still need to stabilize your strength. It should be you who should be careful. I don’t want you to die just after breaking through.”
The person coldly snorted and said, “Arrogant. You will pay for your ignorance!” Then he waved his greatsword and slashed towards Zhao Hai.
This time, Zhao Hai received his large glaive and replaced it with a blade that he was familiar with. At the same time, he used the Seven Demon Killing Blades along with his Cosmos Technique.
The other party soon discovered that he couldn’t do anything to Zhao Hai. Although his strength has undergone a transformation, Zhao Hai showed that he wasn’t weak. He found that it was impossible for him to kill Zhao Hai.
The two fought for an hour without any signs of ending. At this time, both combatants felt powerful spiritual forces targeted towards them. Both knew that their battle had alarmed the beasts of the surrounding area. These immortal-level beasts were going to come over to see what’s happening.
Thinking of this, the expression of the two couldn’t help but change. They didn’t want to meet any of these beasts. Fighting these beasts wouldn’t bring any benefits.
Zhao Hai looked at his enemy before jumping back. After receiving his blade, he said, “This one is called Zhao Hai from the Great Realm of Cultivation. What’s your name? We’ll resume this battle once we reach the Soaring Dragon Realm.”
As soon as the cultivator heard Zhao Hai, he couldn’t help but laugh. Then he replied, “Alright, as long as we both survive and go to the Soaring Dragon Realm, we’ll continue this battle. This one is Tu Qian from the Dragon Soul Realm!”
Zhao Hai laughed and said, “Good.” Then after he said that, his body disappeared. At the same time, Tu Qian’s body sank into the rocky mountain.
