Unparalleled After Ten Consecutive Draws - Chapter 247
Ancient Battlefield, Inner Zone.
Chu Kuangren was fiddling with a black crystal in his hands.
The crystal had an irregular shape and contained a concentrated amount of innate ferocious qi that was ten times more than the amount present in his body.
Chu Kuangren grinned.
If he could absorb the Innate Ferocious Crystal, it would propel the progress of his Infallible Tormented Physique to around fifty percent and above.
By then, the amount of strength he could display would be incredibly terrifying. On top of other techniques or means of combat, the average Sage would be no match to him at all.
However, when compared to beings on the level of the Giant Tormented Sage Ruler,
there would still be a large power gap between them.
Even if he had merged with the Innate Ferocious Crystal, the amount of Innate Ferocious Qi he possessed would be similar to his opponent. However, because the Giant Tormented Sage Ruler had been inside the Ancient Battlefield for a very long time and absorbed countless amounts of ferocious qi, it meant that he would have other tricks up his sleeve besides a mere Innate Ferocious Qi.
“Why hasn’t the White-Robed General come out yet?”
Chu Kuangren looked towards the Ancient Battlefield’s Core Area and muttered.
At that moment, a strong fluctuation of ferocious qi came from behind him.
A violent saber light suddenly swept towards him like a falling meteor!
Chu Kuangren immediately retaliated with a backhand and unleashed his Human Mountain Stamp. Its raging human mountain energy brutally smashed the saber light into pieces.
He looked to the distance and saw a tormented soul that was wielding a saber heading towards him at breakneck speed. It was one of the Inner Zone’s Ten Tormented, the Tormented Saber Wielder!
Besides the Tormented Saber Wielder, there was also a tormented soul in the form of a tiger and another small hill-sized giant black insect crawling on the ground.
They were part of the Inner Zone’s Ten Tormented as well — the Tormented Tiger and Tormented Bug…
Besides that, there was a huge amount of high-level tormented souls as well.
Chu Kuangren was stunned for a moment.
“Why are there so many tormented souls all of a sudden?”
Suddenly, he came back to his senses and stared at the Innate Ferocious Crystal in his hands, upon which he said, “Are they attracted to the Innate Ferocious Crystal?”
To the tormented souls, the Innate Ferocious Qi was tantamount to good luck as it could even allow them to develop a spiritual ego too.
Let alone a crystal filled with such concentrated Innate Ferocious Qi.
Perhaps all the tormented souls within the Inner Zone were rushing towards him now.
Chu Kuangren tossed the Innate Ferocious Crystal into the air a few times before he kept it inside his Yin and Yang ring and chuckled. “These bunch of impudent and tiny tormented souls.”
If the Sage-level tormented souls in the Core Area could not do anything to him, then what could these Inner Zone’s tormented souls do?
The abnormal behavior of the Inner Zone’s tormented souls eventually attracted the attention of countless adventurers, especially the ones who had experienced the horrible incident that was the million-unit Tormented Army. After all, everyone was still in a highly alert time period.
Hence when they saw the tormented souls’ abnormal behavior, they could not help but feel horrified.
“What’s going on? Have these tormented souls gone crazy?”
“It can’t be! They’re not going to gather in numbers like the Tormented Army and rush out of the Ancient Battlefield to create mayhem and destruction, right?”
“Not much has happened on the Ancient Battlefield for so many years, yet why are so many abnormalities happening one after another in the past few days?”
“No way, check it out everyone. These tormented souls are all heading towards the Ancient Battlefield’s Core Area. What the hell is going on there?”
“Let’s go take a look…”
Some of the cultivators pondered for a while but because they could not hold back their curiosity, they decided to go and find out the cause of the tormented souls’ abnormal behavior.
In a short moment, everyone was near the Core Area. Those that dared to venture there were quite strong and capable, even the weakest among them was an Honorable.
“Look, there’s someone over there.”
Someone among the crowd yelled.
A white spot then appeared in their field of vision, and that white spot itself was also the target of the countless tormented souls.
That white spot was actually a person.
It was a man who was clad in a wide-sleeved white robe with a gorgeous longsword hanging on his waist, and he possessed an ethereal and otherworldly temperament.
“It’s Chu Kuangren!”
Someone recognized him from within the crowd.
The crowd looked at him, surprised.
“Why is he here?”
“Hold up, he seems to be the target of all these tormented souls. What has he done to incur the wrath of so many tormented souls?”
“Look, that’s the Tormented Saber Wielder, Tormented Bug, Tormented Great Demon, and a few others of the Inner Zone’s Ten Tormented. With all those terrifying beings surrounding him, can Chu Kuangren handle all of them alone?”
The tormented souls came in hordes, and among them were countless high-level tormented souls and also a few of the Inner Zone’s Ten Tormented. A vast surge of domineering ferocious qi swept through the whole area. This troop was not any weaker than the previous million-unit Tormented Army.
Compared to all of them, Chu Kuangren looked very tiny.
“Don’t you forget, that person is Chu Kuangren!”
A cultivator took a deep breath and said with a serious tone.
The others turned silent when they heard his words. If it were them standing before that horde of tormented souls, they would have no chance of winning even if they had an army of thousands of cultivators with them.
However, Chu Kuangren was different.
He alone was better than a whole army!
Everyone looked at Chu Kuangren, interested to see how he would deal with the situation.
Yet they saw him doing something shocking instead.
Chu Kuangren raised his arm lightly and the sand on the ground before him levitated in the air, forming into a… chair?
Chu Kuangren sat on the chair casually as the hordes of tormented souls approached him.
Many cultivators present were dumbfounded by his move.
After all, seeing the incoming horde of tormented souls was enough to scare them to death.
However, Chu Kuangren simply faced them with a calm look on him.
“Hey, did he just sit down?”
Someone asked in disbelief.
Some were rubbing their eyes as well, suspicious if they were hallucinating or not.
Despite that, something even more shocking happened next.
After Chu Kuangren sat on the sand chair, he then snapped his fingers. Multiple streaks of sword qi came out of his body and turned into clones of him.
Those clones were made of sword qi and looked exactly like Chu Kuangren. All of them had sword qi and Daoist Rhymes circulating around them.
“What, what kind of technique is this?”
“By the heavens, there are so many clones.”
Everyone found it a little hard to believe.
However, everything before them was real.
While Chu Kuangren sat in his sand chair, he activated his Sword Qi Transformation to form two hundred clones of himself that rushed to attack the countless tormented souls before him.
The two hundred sword qi clones then constructed a horrifying sword qi defense line, and none of the tormented souls could break through it for some time.
“Since I’m waiting for someone anyway, I’ll play with all of you for a while.”
Chu Kuangren sat on the sand chair with his legs crossed and said.
Perhaps he felt that the two hundred sword qi clones were not strong enough because he then took out the Sacred Emerald Sword Case and multiple swords flew out of it.
With every sword qi clone wielding a treasured sword, their combat strength suddenly amplified.
In the air, the cultivators who had rushed over were all confused.
It was their first time witnessing a battle like that, with Chu Kuangren’s main body sitting comfortably in his chair while he sent out hundreds of sword qi clones to fight on the battlefield!
“So, this is the unparalleled and peerless Chu Kuangren?”
“What a terrifying strength he has!”
“By the heavens, I think one sword qi clone of his can easily kill me, yet he’s able to form a few hundred of them!”
“Is he even human?”
Everyone was stunned speechless.
One of the Inner Zone’s Ten Tormented, the Tormented Saber Wielder roared before it rushed past the sword qi clones and towards Chu Kuangren to attack him.
Not only the Tormented Saber Wielder, but a few of the other Inner Zone’s Ten Tormented broke through the line of defense as well.
After all, there was still a limit to how strong the clones were as two hundred of them were all formed at once.
The Inner Zone’s Ten Tormented were all Honorable Supremes as well.
“Is Chu Kuangren’s main body going to attack?”
“I guess so.”
Led by the Tormented Saber Wielder, the Inner Zone’s Ten Tormented all rushed towards Chu Kuangren.
Still sitting on the chair, Chu Kuangren simply moved his body and everyone thought that he was going to get up to deal with the Inner Zone’s Ten Tormented. However, they noticed that he had only moved his butt slightly.
All he did was slowly lift his right hand and gently pressed it towards the direction of the attacking Inner Zone’s Ten Tormented.
Within the void, a terrifying surge of spiritual power merged with earth qi and formed into a majestic Godly Mountain which immediately landed on the Tormented Saber Wielder and other Inner Zone’s Ten Tormented!
With a bang, a huge explosion erupted and rumbled the ground!
