Li Qiye smiled while looking at Zhentian’s blood energy destroying the world.
With a loud blast, his energy was released as well. It turned into a true dragon and coiled around in the air while roaring nonstop.
Even though Li Qiye’s energy was not ravaging the sky like Zhentian’s or drowning the myriad realms, when it turned into the shape of a true dragon, it seemed as if a single claw could shatter all things.
The crowd became breathless after the two showed off their majestic and endless blood energies. All other experts paled in comparison.
“That’s an Era Evader for you, such powerful energy with few peers. Even though there are ancient existences stronger than him but in terms of blood energy and life force, maybe no one can be his match in Heaven Spirit.” An old paragon was naturally shocked to see this scene.
“Li Qiye isn’t weak either. He’s not an Era Evader but his blood energy is boundless as well. Each strand of energy is like a mountain and has experienced wondrous tempering.” Another big shot stated after seeing the draconic energy.
The two of them suppressed this world as if this region could be crushed so easily under their might. One could even hear the ground creaking, on the verge of shattering.
“Go. I want to see just how far the dao brother of Immortal Emperor Ta Kong has gone.” Li Qiye smiled freely and said.
Zhentian casually pointed forward. A phoenix screech echoed in the air with a golden light. A golden phoenix descended with a pair of world-severing claws.
“The Void Imperfection School’s Phoenix Pursuit Finger.” A knowledgeable big shot murmured after seeing this.
Li Qiye carefreely walked forward just like a carp jumping out of the water. No one saw how he did it but he was instantly behind the golden phoenix.
“Boom!” A random blow from him instantly penetrated the phoenix’s weak spot. With a scream, it fell down instantly.
Before it could hit the ground, Zhentian’s seal pressing down with the momentum of the world. The sun and moon with a torrential flood were coming; one could even see all types of fish in this water channel. Such a seal made him look like a sea god that could command the sea demons.
“Regal Valley’s Sun and Moon Myriad Fish Seal.” The knowledgeable big shot commented again in astonishment.
Li Qiye strolled through this divine seal and somehow avoided the sun and moon as well as the fish in an instant. While inside the seal itself, he powerfully reached out with his finger and the seal crumbled.
In this split second, the Yin and Yang rose in Zhentian’s hands. His fingers seemed to be taking roots into the earth as he instantly sealed the space around him to form a treefather’s divine mark. This mark instantly erupted and brought the world down with it.
“The Ancestral Terra’s Worldgrasp Mark!” Of course, the big shot revealed his vast knowledge again.
“Rumble!” In the blink of an eye, Zhentian and Li Qiye exchanged several dozen moves. Each attack was extremely powerful and capable of branding the world.
“Extreme Yang School’s Divine Hymn.” Each time Zhentian performed a different technique, the big shot was able to name it.
This ferocious battle displayed the two’s wondrous energies. Their techniques revealed the mysteries of the grand dao and could directly touch the dao’s fundamental essences.
Zhentian’s attacks were extremely broad since he could easily perform any techniques from the myriad races. These techniques were profound and mighty. Even the ancestors from the respective sects of these techniques wouldn’t be able to do better.
He has not repeated a move just yet as if he still had thousands more to go. Such knowledge and proficiency left everyone in awe. Was there no technique in this world that he didn’t know?
In a short period, he unleashed a barrage of these techniques. Even the simplest dao art became complex with many variations.
Contrary to Zhentian’s style, Li Qiye retaliated in a very simple manner with a punch, kick, and finger strike. Moreover, these weren’t techniques at all, just pure attacks aiming for the vital points! There was no superfluous use of force nor wasted movements.
During the fight, Zhentian was accompanied by the celestials and protected by the ocean. Sometimes, he would turn into a guardian deity. Meanwhile, Li Qiye casually attacked with a more primal touch just like leaping dragons, striking phoenixes, or soaring eagles…
The contrast was quite great between the two of them. Zhentian’s techniques resembled a majestic citadel with many golden pavilions and palaces. Even the tiles were extravagant and astonishing.
Li Qiye’s simple strikes were a simple hut, unadorned and straight to the point yet it was enough to shield people from the wind and rain.
The spectators were dazed and astounded by the fight. One commenter murmured: “No wonder why Zhentian can call an emperor brother. He has so many supreme techniques under his belt, is there a merit law in this world that he doesn’t understand?”
“No, Li Qiye is the real expert here.” Someone could see through the profundity at work: “Zhentian is indeed amazing with all of his techniques under the heavens. However, Li Qiye grasps the mysteries of the grand dao, straight to its essences. Regardless of Zhentian’s techniques, Li Qiye simply dispelled it with ordinary strikes. This is true proficiency in the dao.”
After a long time, someone suddenly thought of something: “Zhentian is so heaven-defying with all of these arts. Could it be that he has seen all the laws in this world?”
“No, he didn’t see all of the manuals.” An old charming spirit God-Monarch explained: “This is due to the Dream Empyrean’s divine reflection.”
“Please elaborate.” A junior humbly consulted after hearing this.
The old monarch went on: “In Heaven Spirit, many people say that the disciples from the Dream Empyrean have the best divine reflection among the charming spirit. Needless to say about Zhentian, he was born as a supreme genius. Rumor has it that when he was younger, his divine reflection was incredible. Whenever he met someone using a merit law, his divine reflection could derive the mysteries of these laws, allowing him to learn it just by watching.” He ended with an envious sigh.
Who wouldn’t want such a divine reflection? Having it was akin to having all the arts in this world.
“So he can steal people’s technique just by watching?” Many were shocked to hear this.
For many great powers, the merit laws and techniques were top secrets. If people could secretly learn their arts, it would be a detrimental blow.
“There’s a difference.” The old monarch shook his head a bit: “Each of these arts has their own core secrets. These fundamentals are impossible to steal. Zhentian’s laws are only around seventy percent of the true laws, there is still a certain gap between his and the real things. However, because of his power and great cultivation, this was enough for his attacks to be mighty, perhaps even better than the sects’ ancestors!”
People became relieved after hearing this. If Zhentian could actually steal everything, then the rest of the world would no longer have any secrets.
“Boom!” More blows were exchanged with neither side gaining an upper hand.
Zhentian stared at Li Qiye with his eyes batting but he didn’t say anything.
“Warm-up time is over.” Li Qiye said lightly: “Time for you to use your real techniques. Copying others in a superficial manner can’t reach the apex.”
The crowd gasped again for they understood that this was only the beginning of the incoming tempest.
