Chapter 1516: The Last Stand
Translator: CKtalon Editor: CKtalon
As Primordial Chaos Daolord slashed out, the Mirage Snow-wielding Yi Yun no longer had any room for retreat. Although he had the Ascending Dragon Cauldron behind him, he was in a sealed space. If he entered the Ascending Dragon Cauldron, he could end up being sealed inside it by the combined efforts of Primordial Chaos Daolord and Fire Cloud Divine Lord. When that happened, the cauldron, with him still inside, could be taken away. It was even possible for him to be refined to nothingness while inside the cauldron.
This battle was pretty much a last stand for Yi Yun!
Nine Stances of the Ascending Dragon—Reverse Scale!
Yi Yun stirred all his Yuan Qi as his lifeblood forces surged like billowing smoke. He had stimulated the Dragon Emperor bloodline within him!
“Do you think you have the time to fully stimulate your bloodline while facing my blade? You are courting death!”
The moment Yi Yun activated his Nine Stances of the Ascending Dragon, time came to an instant pause. As for Primordial Chaos Daolord’s blade, it slashed straight at Yi Yun’s throat. There was no chance for Yi Yun to parry the attack!
Primordial Chaos Daolord roared, but at that moment, he suddenly felt something amiss. His saber should have cleaved off Yi Yun’s head in a thousandth of an instant, but he felt that an extremely long time had passed only for his saber to inch slightly forward.
Laws of Time!?
Primordial Chaos Daolord was alarmed. He looked up abruptly at Yi Yun’s head, where an azure lamp was floating. A weak azure-colored flame was slowly burning. The silent flame seemed to traverse the infinitely long river of time, having been lit since the beginning of the universe a billion years ago. No matter how much time passed and how weak it looked, it was everlasting and eternally bright!
At that moment, Primordial Chaos Daolord was astonished to realize that even his thought processes had slowed down!
He had reigned supreme in the Sinkhole for countless years as a hegemon of the Great Cosmic State. During this period, he had encountered countless warriors who were adept in the laws of time. Even Primordial Chaos Daolord himself was somewhat versed in the laws of time; however, he had never met someone whose time laws were so unassailable. Even his thought processes had been slowed to a crawl!
Yi Yun struck out, producing a raven-black beam of light. It was so dark because the Dao of Major Destruction devoured all light. There were many warriors in the world who were adept at the laws of time, but Yi Yun was the only person who grasped the Dao of Major Destruction!
Primordial Chaos Daolord was a knowledgeable person. His back shuddered for he had a deep appreciation of how terrifying the aura of Yi Yun’s strike was.
What sort of attack was this!?
Primordial Chaos Daolord’s expression changed drastically. He never expected Yi Yun’s strength to increase by leaps and bounds after not seeing him for four months!
He could sense a lethal threat in Yi Yun’s strike!
“Primordial Chaos, how useless are you!”
At that moment, there was a loud roar as a red, fiery snake descended from the skies. It did not head for Yi Yun, but swept towards the Azure Lamp of Time.
The person who attacked was none other than Fire Cloud Divine Lord.
With him taking action, the surrounding Fire God Chains suddenly tightened. The surrounding spatial forces were compressed by the chains, causing an invisible restraining force to bear down on Yi Yun, making his attack slow down drastically!
With a crisp resonating clang, Fire Cloud Divine Lord’s whip lashed out heavily at the Azure Lamp of Time. The ancient divine artifact was not to be dismissed, as it simply rebounded Fire Cloud Divine Lord’s whip. But this strike had caused the Azure Lamp of Time’s time warp to be nullified!
“This azure lamp!”
Fire Cloud Divine Lord drew a cold gasp of air. It was another supreme treasure. Exactly how many of these treasures did Yi Yun have!?
“Primordial Chaos!” Fire Cloud Divine Lord shouted clearly.
“Got it!” Upon being freed from the restraint of the time laws, Primordial Chaos Daolord was like a tiger unleashed. Although they didn’t like one another, the two Sinkhole hegemons worked together perfectly.
“Break it for me!”
With a despair-inducing strike, he slashed down with indomitable force.
Primordial Chaos Daolord’s saber clashed violently with Yi Yun’s Mirage Snow. His vast Yuan Qi instantly blasted out. This was the powerful strength of a Sinkhole powerhouse, and although Yi Yun was a rare genius, he was only a half-step Divine Lord. In terms of foundations and cultivation level, he was incomparable to Primordial Chaos Daolord.
Yi Yun felt a searing pain at his chest as he got swept up in the energy turbulence. He spat out a mouthful of blood as he flew backward!
Upon seeing this, Fire Cloud Divine Lord was not one to miss out on an opportunity. From his initial strike at the Azure Lamp of Time to using the Fire God Chains to repress Yi Yun, he had not expended too much energy. In a way, he was simply waiting for the opportunity to deliver a fatal strike on his weary opponent!
As for Yi Yun, he had been disadvantaged in his clash with Primordial Chaos Daolord. Now that his body was sent flying back, it was the perfect opportunity to defeat him!
“Fire God Chains!”
Fire Cloud Divine Lord clawed at the void as the thirty-six Fire God Chains surrounding Yi Yun were thrown into mid-air. Like dancing fire dragons, the ends of the chain manifested as sharp spear tips that suddenly thrust at Yi Yun! The Fire God Chains array could both attack and defend; it was practically a perfect item. As for the thirty-six chains, it had sealed off any direction in which Yi Yun could dodge. It stabbed down at Yi Yun from every direction, forming a spherical attack that had no blind spot!
There was no way to dodge!
Just as the battle was coming to an end, with Yi Yun about to be riddled with holes—
Whew! Whew! Whew! Whew!
An azure-colored divine tree phantom appeared behind Yi Yun. Thirty-six lush branches shot out from above the ancient tree!
These branches coruscated with a vital shimmer, like chains of the Order of Heaven and Earth. Each branch met one Fire God Chain.
“Pa! Pa! Pa!”
The branches clashed with the Fire God Chains, twirling around the chains! They countered each other, preventing any advancement or retreat!
Another two thick branches shot out from the divine tree, shooting straight at Primordial Chaos Daolord and Fire Cloud Divine Lord!
Fire Cloud Divine Lord’s expression changed. He thought that Yi Yun was a waning force after his clash with Primordial Chaos Daolord, but he never expected Yi Yun to still have a trick up his sleeve. Not only did he fend off his Fire God Chains, he even managed to deliver a counter attack!
“Red Lotus Fire Hell!”
Fire Cloud Divine Lord roared as boundless flames spewed out from his body as they surged for the divine tree’s branch. The flames had a terrifying temperature like scorching hell. Even ice that had been frozen during the Chaos era could melt! In terms of offensive strength, the Fire God Chains array was inferior to the Red Lotus Fire Hell.
The divine tree’s branch was enveloped as it ignited and billowed black smoke.
Even the Azure Wood Divine Tree’s branch could not remain unscathed when facing the Red Lotus Fire Hell! After all, Yi Yun’s Azure Wood Divine Tree had yet to fully grow, while Fire Cloud Divine Lord was a Sinkhole powerhouse that had been famous for years.
As for Primordial Chaos Daolord, he shouted loudly before suddenly extending his hand towards the branch that came attacking him!
His palm was enveloped in blurry, gray Primordial Chaos forces. As his vast Yuan Qi surged, he grabbed at the branch.
He was actually grabbing the branch with his naked hand!
The branch could reduce a landmass to smithereens with its unbearable force and mass, but at that moment, a restraining force appeared around the branch, causing it to instantly come to a pause.
And it was this pause that allowed Primordial Chaos Daolord to grab it. His vast Yuan Qi surged into the branch as he pulled forcibly at the branch!
Immense strength was exerted as the ground beneath Primordial Chaos Daolord sank, the remnant shockwave spreading out while cracking the land. With him as center, the ground was filled with cracks like a spiderweb that spanned hundreds of feet!
Yi Yun was still in mid-air. The tug came with a horrifying strength as Yi Yun was forcibly pulled towards Primordial Chaos Daolord.
As he plummeted down, Primordial Chaos Daolord’s blade of despair came up to meet him!
“Die!” Primordial Chaos Daolord’s eyes were extremely cold. His combined attacks with Fire Cloud Divine Lord was like a relentless barrage of the elements. They were bent on killing Yi Yun!
Yi Yun could dodge the first strike, but he was not letting Yi Yun survive the second!
Yi Yun’s joints emitted loud sounds like the sound of stirring steel pellets. Even though he had activated the Nine Stances of the Ascending Dragon, giving him strength that exceeded the average warrior, he could not withstand Primordial Chaos Daolord’s formidable yank.
This was the strength of a Sinkhole powerhouse. Furthermore, Yi Yun was not facing one, but two!
