Chapter 1180: Fight against The Thundergod’s Child
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian and Lei Ba stood in opposition, facing each other in the air. Several of the experts had retreated, leaving the two with more room to battle.
With the startling might radiating from the pair, the surrounding experts could sense how overwhelmingly powerful these two people were.
Lei Ba was bathed in the boundless glow of lightning. Dark thunderclouds covered the skies, generating crackles of lightning. To have the power to destroy a multitude of living things—it seemed like a taboo strength.
When one reached the upper tier of immortal-foundation, the disparity between each level would only grow broader, similar to an insurmountable gap. In addition, Lei Ba had already reached the eighth level, so how much stronger had he grown? Lei Ba had the title of the Thundergod’s Child and even ordinary ninth-level immortals wouldn’t be his match. It felt like Lei Ba was already at the peak of the eighth level. His immortal foundation was extremely terrifying—he was able to gather thunder and lightning from the skies, transforming them into the laws of thunder and lightning, slowly and gradually shifting his physique into a body of laws.
“What a fearsome aura,” the crowd mused silently. They then glanced at Qin Wentian again. A sixth-level immortal, and yet he seemingly had a body that possessed the toughness of a fiendgod. His entire body was shimmering with an unexcelled brilliance. It was also extremely rare for someone of that cultivation base to have the audacity to fight solo against Lei Ba. In this entire academy, there were probably only a rare few who shared this kind of strength and courage.
“Do you think that just because you defeated a white tiger, you have the strength to fight me?” Lei Ba domineeringly walked over. Back then in the past, he’d also cast a devastating injury on Jun Mengchen. Acting on behalf of Chu Qingyi, he’d operated in an extremely tyrannical manner. Today when facing Qin Wentian, his tyranny was as suffocating as before.
From his immortal foundation, destructive lightning shot out with unbelievable speed, directly aiming for Qin Wentian.
At this moment, Qin Wentian’s perfect immortal foundation started to transform into the shape of a divine turtle whose shell enveloped him completely. The boundless lightning energy slashed over, causing the divine turtle to tremble violently yet its defenses still held, seemingly indestructible.
“Crackle…” The destructive might of lightning and thunder blasted out with a fearsome violence. Lei Ba once again stepped out in an oppressive manner, slamming out with a thunder palm imprint. This gigantic palm print was like the true palm of the Thundergod, blasting down its might from the sky. Qin Wentian fully unleashed his energy, calling upon the augmentative forces of the God’s Hand as his destruction palm imprint flew up into the air. The imprint collided head-on with the thunder palm, showing no signs of backing down.
A thunderous boom rang out, the impact shook the space with enough force to almost shatter it apart. With just a clash, the aftershock of that impact felt like the world was ending.
Lei Ba naturally knew that it was extremely difficult to depend on a single palm strike to slay Qin Wentian. During his attack, he continued to advance, borrowing power from the looming thunderstorm to stab out his finger at Qin Wentian. Instantly, a terrifying lightning dragon materialized and shot towards Qin Wentian, its opened maw bellowing in rage. The entire space seemed to be fully enveloped with lightning might—there was no way to escape.
Qin Wentian’s immortal-foundation morphed into the form of a divine dragon, flawlessly perfect. Dragon runes circulated around his body as he activated the power of the God’s Hand. With a roar of rage, he blasted out his palms and attacked. To everyone’s shock, they discovered that Qin Wentian had actually manifested numerous demonic dragons, each sharing the form of his immortal-foundation as they all rushed towards Lei Ba’s attack, the impact causing both forces to shatter.
Lei Ba stepped forth once again, closing the distance to Qin Wentian. Upon staring at the seemingly berserk Lei Ba, Qin Wentian didn’t shrink back and rushed out as well. A terrifyingly fearless battle intent flickered in his eyes.
“These two are so powerful.” Everyone felt shocked in their hearts at how terrifying Qin Wentian was. Was this truly an expert at the sixth level? Every strike he unleashed could shake the skies, and even geniuses at the seventh level would be insta-killed by him. No wonder Huang Youdi and White-eye had ended up so miserably defeated.
Lei Ba’s eyes flashed with lightning, he stared at Qin Wentian and coldly intoned, “Ten Thousand Calamities Slaughter!”
As the sound of his voice faded, the lightning energy within the atmosphere all converged together, rising up in the air and enveloped the entire space of their current battle. There was no way to evade this skill; Qin Wentian could only endure it.
The phantom of the divine turtle continued to engulf his entire body. With each blast of the calamity’s might, signs of cracks could be seen on the defensive shell, as though it would shatter at any instant. That bout of calamity might seemed never-ending, or maybe it would be better to say that only with Qin Wentian’s destruction would the forceful barrage stop. This was Qin Wentian’s calamity.
“What a fearsome destructive might. Qin Wentian may have unparalleled talent, but it’s probably incomparably difficult for him to defeat Lei Ba when he’s only at the sixth level of immortal-foundation.” Countless people observing this battle felt a stifling pressure in their hearts. Lei Ba’s strength was truly too shocking. Bestowed with the title of the ‘Thundergod’s Child,’ this supreme genius had incomparable combat prowess and a high cultivation base. All his attacks were exceedingly tyrannical.
This Ten Thousand Calamity Slaughter produced lightning energy that was coated with a black-golden glow. This wasn’t an effect of Lei Ba’s astral soul but was a combination of the gold energy and destructive attribute of lightning. Lei Ba was considered the most proficient in lightning and thunder—all other attributes served to support and augment the power of his main attributes. In the future, he would surely be the Thunder Emperor of his generation.
The divine turtle slowly gave way under the calamitous might. Qin Wentian’s body of truth appeared as countless ancient characters flew out from his immortal-foundation. Each and every ancient character contained a towering force, powered by the art of truth, enveloping his entire body. The characters emanated a collective suppression force that eroded the destructive might raining down on him. The power of the Ten Thousand Calamity Slaughter continued to slam down, destroying the ancient characters. However, there seemed to be no end to the ancient characters of suppression, as they were manifesting as quickly as they were destroyed. Qin Wentian’s expression was solemn as he was covered protectively in layers of suppressive might. His demeanor even resembled an expert from the Buddhist path.
“Is that all you can do? You dare to challenge me with just that level of strength?” Lei Ba lifted his head as boundless thunder gushed forth from his immortal-foundation, causing the entire space to shake as he formed a whirlpool of destruction that could collapse the heavens and earth. This scene of a looming apocalypse caused everyone to feel their hearts trembling. And as for Qin Wentian, he was right in the center of that storm.
“Let me give you a taste of true destruction. Thundergod Hammer!” Lei Ba coldly roared. Amidst the destructive thunder filled with apocalyptic might, a silhouette of a thundergod actually formed. This phantom of the thundergod stood high up in the air above Lei Ba, with a height of over a hundred feet. A thundergod hammer could be seen grasped its hands, containing the taboo might of lightning and thunder. It fairly emanated with a supreme destructive power that could lay waste to all living things In an instant, everyone present felt that the pressure boring down on them had turned stiflingly heavy. Even for ninth-level immortals, their hearts shuddered with a shared feeling of apprehension.
After that, Lei Ba’s body began to gradually expand as he bathed in the thunder’s might. He even seemed to merge together with the Thundergod’s phantom as he himself became the thundergod, wielding the powerful hammer, and peering down with disdain at Qin Wentian.
This was Lei Ba, a heaven’s chosen of the Thundergod Hall, with the title of Thundergod’s Child. How could his strength not match up to his reputation? He naturally had the qualifications to be arrogant.
Everyone couldn’t help but feel nervous for Qin Wentian. This newly risen genius had managed to rank twice on the Supreme Might Rankings. Lei Ba wanted to use the most domineering method to destroy him in order to collapse Qin Wentian’s confidence. The Thundergod Hammer seemed to contain an indomitable force that was almost impossible to block. With a single hammer strike, Qin Wentian would be reduced to a pool of mangled flesh and blood.
“RUMBLE!” A terrifying noise rang out. The spectators could only see Qin Wentian’s form expanding to an incredible size. The spectators all hurriedly retreated to a safe distance and inclined their heads, staring at Qin Wentian’s continuously expanding form. They all felt a stifling pressure boring down on them.
Qin Wentian’s body was actually like that of Lei Ba’s, fearsome to behold.
These two gigantic entities faced each other in opposition. Such might was simply too violent and terrifying. It felt like more energy was building up in the air just from their stares, sufficient enough to destroy any ordinary geniuses. They rose up into the air at the same time, and even when they reached an extremely high vantage point, the spectators below could still clearly see what was happening due to their terrifying size.
Qin Wentian’s immortal-foundation thrummed as he coalesced an ancient halberd of pure destruction from his boundless immortal energy. At this moment, the destructive ancient halberd shimmered with a black-colored light that desired to annihilate everything. Dragon roars, phoenix cries, and the bellows of Zhenkong shook the air. A total of eight Greater Demon silhouettes could be seen revolving around the ancient halberd, producing a collective might that could shake the heavens.
“Kacha…” Boundless amounts of thunder fell from the sky, which the Thundergod Hammer then converged and focused into a concentrated force as it smashed towards Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian brandished his ancient halberd and stabbed out in the air with indomitable might. The countless number of ancient characters of destruction gushed forth, triggering a faint fusion among the eight greater demons, forming into another kind of mystical energy. However this kind of feeling was extremely hard to grasp with any definition, there was no way to describe it clearly. This newly emerged energy slammed into the Thundergod’s Hammer, bombarding it with a destructive force. The battle between the two caused countless people in the central regions of the Sky Connecting Realm to tilt their faces up as they stared at the grand battle in the skies.
Chu Qingyi had initially left already but at this moment, she also found herself involuntarily lifting her head to stare at the two figures, a complex feeling pinching her heart. It could be said that she had brought about this heaven-shaking battle that shocked all the Sky Connecting Realm.
The two supreme geniuses warred in the heavens, one wielding the supreme Thundergod Hammer, the other an ancient halberd capable of utter annihilation, causing the hearts of all the spectators to tremble. These two combatants were simply too terrifying.
“I remember back when Qin Wentian first entered the academy, wasn’t he just at the lower tier of immortal-foundation? Other than his perfect saint-grade immortal-foundation and his astral souls, he also had an insignificant cultivation base. But now, in just a mere 36 years, he’s actually about to stand at the peak of immortal-foundation. The Heavenly Dao Sacred Academy is truly a place where geniuses can create miracles,” someone murmured as he sighed in admiration.
Thirty-six years. For immortal-foundation characters, this period of time was simply too short. Perhaps it was only enough time for a single session of closed-door seclusion.
According to their combat prowess, there was no doubt that the current Qin Wentian could fight evenly against Lei Ba who was soon at the peak of immortal-foundation.
The two of them fought in a mad clash of weapons. Lei Ba’s Thundergod Hammer possessed an absolute advantage at the start. But later on, Qin Wentian actually grew more imposing and courageous the longer he fought. The spectators discovered that the eight Greater Demon phantoms circulating around his ancient halberd had somehow fused as one, converging into a mystical energy that only grew stronger and stronger.
For this point, Qin Wentian could naturally sense it with even more clarity. The eight treasured Greater Demon arts were something he had managed to learn from the supreme ancient cauldron that the black dragon of the City of Ancient Emperors had bestowed to him. Could it be that the eight arts were, in fact, part of one entity?
Qin Wentian continuously struck out, and each of his attacks made him faintly sense a power that was strong enough to devour mountains and swallow rivers.
“ARGH!” Lei Ba roared thunderously. Qin Wentian lifted his ancient halberd once more, infusing it with the boundless energy within his immortal-foundation. The destructive might shook the skies and earth, and under the fusion of the eight Greater Demons revolving around the halberd, it amplified that surge of mystical might as it shot out, colliding with the Thundergod’s Hammer. With a deafening bang, a large hole suddenly appeared in Lei Ba’s chest, cleanly penetrating through by virtue of that mystical energy.
