“He has truly managed to cultivate it, acquiring the inheritance of Ancient Emperor Yi!” Xiao Lengyue’s countenance was extremely cold as she stared at Qin Wentian. Somehow, Qin Wentian actually succeeded in cultivating God’s Hand, this legendary secret art that had been lost through the ages. He must have obtained a treasure in the underground palace that enabled him to do so, and kept it from her.
“Bastard, what a crafty fellow. To think I still kept on protecting him.” Xiao Lengyue grew angrier the more she thought about it as killing intent flashed through her eyes.
“That’s the God’s Hand?” Greedwolf who was by the side of Xiao Lengyue had a sharp expression on his face. If that was truly the secret art of Ancient Emperor Yi, a fearsome tempest would surely manifest.
In the City of Ancient Emperors, the appearance of Ancient Emperor Yi’s palace was known by everyone. In fact, many experts stopped by and entered the palace personally; yet none of them had managed to succeed in comprehending the chant imparted by the blood runes. However right now as everyone saw Qin Wentian unleashing God’s Hand, their countenances all turned incomparably solemn as they focused on Qin Wentian.
“It’s rumored that the heaven-shaking secret art of Emperor Yi, God’s Hand, was the art that allowed him to sweep through the immortal realms unrivaled all those years ago, resulting him in unifying the immortal realms.” The spectators murmured. Right now, even the experts of the God Extermination Palace and Ji Lanshan himself, all had a frozen expression on their faces.
“What technique is this?” Ji Lanshan asked as his eyes were fixed on Qin Wentian’s shimmering palm which expanded in size.
“Won’t you know if you try it?” Qin Wentian’s palm shimmered with a terrifying violet-golden glow. Astral energy unceasingly infused into it and all of a sudden, a fearsome violet-gold long spear materialized within that palm. A pair of wind roc wings took form behind Qin Wentian’s back, causing him to give off a feeling that he was the lord of everything in this world.
“Is this the power of God’s Hand? Able to release any type of energy… that violet-golden long spear seemed to be a part of God’s Hand itself.” Xiao Lengyue could see that the spear was formed of countless divine inscriptions. Fearsome runes emerged from Qin Wentian’s palms, flowing endlessly into the long spear, imbuing it with power.
At this moment, fearsome rumbling sounds echoed from Qin Wentian’s body. His entire strength was stimulated to the highest peak. In addition to the augmentation effect from his immortal battle art, he was now in his strongest state. The him now, actually emited a threat level almost equivalent to the time when he used the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay.
This was all caused by the oracular chant of the God’s Hand. In addition, Qin Wentian knew that this wasn’t the complete inheritance of God’s Hand, but merely, an entry-level introductory primer. If not, based on his Celestial Phenomenon strength, how can he fully unleashed the true might of God’s Hand? That was the secret art used by an ancient emperor to reign supreme throughout the immortal realms. Although it was just an introductory primer, it was already incomparably complex and also contained a boundless might.
Not only that, for now Qin Wentian had no way to achieve instantaneous full-power eruptions. He had to condense countless particles of divine energy beforehand, according to the runic diagrams in the underground palace. From the start to the end, Qin Wentian had never lied to Xiao Lengyue. Even if he wanted to teach her, it was impossible for Xiao Lengyue to cultivate God’s Hand. Those who could not unravel the mystery of the underground palace were destined never to be able to comprehend the essence of this lost art, despite it only being an entry-level technique.
“I must end things fast.” Qin Wentian silently mused. Under such a state, the energy consumption was astronomical even for him. He wouldn’t be able to last too long even if he had more Yuanfus compared to others. He had no idea if he would be able to get more proficient with God’s Hand after he reached the ninth-level, but Qin Wentian was very sure that if he wanted to increase his proficiency, he first had to master the Spiritual Refinement Method to the next level.
“Bzz!” A raging wind gusted by. Qin Wentian’s body resembled a true wind roc, so fast that his speed was comparable to golden lightning. In just an instant, he rushed towards an expert of the God Extermination Palace and his target was none other than his opponent back then, the young man with a crown on his head. It was none other than this person’s greed which caused hatred to form between him and the God Extermination Palace.
The countenance of the crowned young man abruptly changed. Back then, he already couldn’t defeat Qin Wentian. Let alone now that Qin Wentian who had cultivated such a terrifying art. He hurriedly retreated, yet he only saw the long spear of Qin Wentian erupting forth, penetrating through space. Beams of golden light shot out, instantly arriving before him. That crowned young man roared in rage. An immortal light flashed as the sounds of a collision could be heard.
The crowned young man was forced back several steps. An immortal-ranked weapon appeared before him, blocking that attack, but there were no signs of satisfaction on his face, only disappointment. He was actually forced to use an immortal weapon… In the City of Ancient Emperors, it was an extremely embarrassing matter to be forced into such dire straits to the point where he had to take out an immortal weapon to neutralize the threat to his life.
Countless gazes turned to him, that crowned young man only felt his face burning with shame. After which, he only heard Qin Wentian coldly stating, “Are you even qualified to be termed a ‘genius’? Merely trash that knows how to group up and bully newbies who enters the City of Ancient Emperors. The God Extermination Palace is nothing but a bunch of worms.”
Ji Lanshan’s cultivation art, the Thousand Talisman Immortal Text, was unleashed to its maximum effect. A thousand talismans sword appeared, he then stepped forth moving towards Qin Wentian. As the sect leader of the God Extermination Palace as well as being a ranker on the Immortal Ascension Rankings, he had to defeat Qin Wentian no matter what.
Qin Wentian cast a glance at Ji Lanshan. After which, his silhouette flickered as he directly dashed towards his opponent.
“DIE!” Ji Lanshan howled, the thousand talisman sword exuded a might strong enough to annihilate the heavens and earth. However at the same moment, the violet-golden long spear materialized by the God’s Hand, directly collided with it. Both weapons shimmered with resplendent runic light, as numerous runes clashed together. A terrifying shock wave born from the impact then tore space apart. Qin Wentian reacted instantly, blasting out with his palm. Another violet-golden spear shimmering with runic might shot out directly, aiming for the Thousand Talismans Constellation that was above Ji Lanshan’s head.
The hearts of the crowd trembled as they watched on. Qin Wentian was merely a seventh-level ascendant but upon using God’s Hand, his combat prowess actually reached such a terrifying level. How tyrannical was God’s Hand truly?
Inclining their heads, the spectators saw the terrifying spear piercing into the constellation. In just an instant, that spear shimmering with divine runnic light completely causing the Thousand Talismans Constellation to be completely suppressed in the air. This made Ji Lanshan howl in madness, he drew more energy from his constellation, wanting to break free of the suppressive force.
But at this moment, Qin Wentian’s gigantic body that was akin to a wind roc, descended. Using the principles of God’s Hand, he directly blasted out a Star-Seizing Palm Imprint. Before this, the star seizing palm already had a tyrannical power. But after applying the principles of God’s Hand, as well as the Ten Thousand Laws Record, the strength within it evolved to another level. When the palm imprint was blasted out, it truly contained enough power to pluck down stars and moon, able to destroy anything that obstructed it.
A boundless radiance erupted from Ji Lanshan. With a roar of rage, a brilliant runic glow circulated around him. Both his hands pierced through the void as an ancient myriad law cauldron that emitted a supreme destructive might appeared. The power of the talismans that covered it could even shake the heavens and no power would be able to shake the cauldron in the slightest.
“BANG!” A world-shattering attack resonated in all eight directions as that terrifying palm strike smashed the ancient cauldon apart. The shockwaves generated a shadow of a palm which then blasted into Ji Lanshan.
Ji Lanshan retreated with explosive speed, yet he failed to evade that shadow of a palm strike. With an explosive sound, he coughed out a mouthful of blood as flecks of redness danced in the air. Borrowing the power from that palm strike, he instantly flew far away, grinding away a portion of that destructive power.
“This…” The spectators were all stunned. Qin Wentian borrowed the power of God’s Hand and defeated a ranker on the Immortal Ascension Rankings, Ji Lanshan!
“God’s Hand…how powerful, there’s no need to doubt its might.” The spectators were truly stunned by the power unleashed by the secret art of Ancient Emperor Yi.
The geniuses in the City of Ancient Emperors were no ordinary characters. Ji Lanshan was an expert ranked on the Immortal Ascension Rankings, and even though he was ranked in the #300+ range, he wasn’t someone who could be defeated easily. However, Qin Wentian did so, and he had even jumped two levels in terms of cultivation, and crushed Ji Lanshan.
How tyrannical exactly was the power of God’s Hand?
“Ji Lanshan, your strength isn’t enough. I have no great hatred with your God Extermination Palace, and in fact, it’s the members of your sect who wanted to bully me and my junior siblings, intending on seizing away our interspatial rings when we first arrived in the City of Ancient Emperors. It’s you guys who acted first before I retaliated, and right now I, Qin Wentian, will warn you here and now…If you guys still refuse to give up, I don’t care if you are the descendant of an immortal king or an immortal emperor. I will show no mercy.”
Qin Wentian coldly spoke, and upon seeing the awe-inspiring aura around him, Xiao Lengyue suddenly felt like Qin Wentian was a different person altogether. That Qin Wentian who endured silently, and this Qin Wentian that exuded magnificence through the generations. Were they the same person?
“Capture him.” Xiao Lengyue commanded, there was no need for other words. The experts of the Xiao Sect lunged forth, and despite Qin Wentian’s current power, they will still be able to capture him.
Qin Wentian, knew the secret art God’s Hand. They had to catch him no matter what.
Upon seeing the experts of the Xiao Sect moving nearer, Qin Wentian roared in rage, “Before this you, Xiao Lengyue, forced me to quit the Xiao Sect when you saw the experts of the God Extermination Palace wanting to deal with me. So what now? I’m no longer someone of your Xiao Sect, don’t tell me that you wish to murder me in order to seize my treasures?”
“Hmph.” Xiao Lengyue coldly snorted, ignoring Qin Wentian.
“Xiao Lengyue, from the first time you invited me to join the Xiao Sect, you already had plenty of schemes in your mind. What’s ridiculous is that I, Qin Wentian, am honest and upright and have never once lied to you. What I said was the truth and wasn’t trying to mock you – even if the secret art was placed right in front of you and even if I tell you the methods to cultivate it, you will never be able to do so.”
Qin Wentian’s words weren’t just for Xiao Lengyue, it was for everyone else as well. He then continued, “The lost art of Ancient Emperor Yi, you guys only felt awe by its might but have no idea how tough it is to comprehend this. If it was really so easy, how can it be called a heaven-shaking secret art? Many of you are descendants of immortal emperors, tell me now, are the secret arts of immortal emperors easy to comprehend and cultivate? Use your brains a little and you will know the difficulty of learning the God’s Hand.”
“Stop boasting shamelessly. Are you saying no one in the City of Ancient Emperors can surpass you in terms of talent?” Just when everyone was pondering over Qin Wentian’s words, another voice rang out through the air. It was none other than Xuan Xing from the Twin Stars Alliance.
“At the very least, I’m much stronger compared to you, Xuan Xing. When we were trapped in the underground palace, you were content to sit around and wait for death, only knowing how to think up methods to deal with me. While I was busy trying to analyse the divine inscriptions and figure out the mystery, trying my best to search for an exit. Finally, I managed to bring everyone out, but you Xuan Xing, refused to admit your inferiority. You are just a useless loser.” Qin Wentian coldly continued, “Everyone here, if you want to comprehend and cultivate God’s Hand, having an extremely high level of attainments in divine inscriptions is the prerequisite. If your level of attainments can’t even compare to this useless bum Xuan Xing, you all best stop your foolish dreams. When in the underground palace, although Xuan Xing could see through the runic diagrams, he couldn’t understand the principles and mysteries behind them at all.”
