Chapter 195: Yin-Yang Perpetual Ice-Fire Wheel
Fang Lin knew that if he used , the power of his attack will be amplified. The problem with this method was that it will be extremely difficult to fuse the half-step Pure Yang Universe Flame and the half-step Pure Yin Cosmic Ice.
With his physique, Fang Lin can fuse them together. But he still needed to spend time to do this. Problem was, time was not at his side right now.
As for , this could be the safest choice, but Fang Lin had no idea yet on how to do such things. If he had knowledge on magical formations, he could still pull this off. Too bad he only had miniscule knowledge regarding magical formations. That throws off  out of the window.
As for , Fang Lin will throw that off too, since he needed to have knowledge about smithing to pull this off which he had none.
As for , Fang Lin felt that it will not be that helpful too. Dual Marks were supposed to be used together so just using either the fire or ice mark beats the purpose of the Dual Marks.
Regarding …. Only idiots will use that method.
“Sigh.” Fang Lin realized that if he wanted to use the fire and ice mark to their full potential, he had to apply his insights on the Yang Dao and Yin Law.
Since he was not at the Second Stage yet, he had no way to fully emulate his insights. The best he can do was to mimic it.
After thinking of this, Fang Lin started his actions. The half-step Pure Yang Universe Flame and the half-step Pure Yin Cosmic Ice left his palms and started rotating against each other.
They did not stop rotating as they continued to speed up. They spun and spun around each other as they changed their shape.
It was at this moment that Fang Lin decided to use the talismans he ‘looted’ from Mina. All her talismans were of high quality, especially the defensive ones. Of course what Mina gave to him were those talismans that can be used on Second Stage Practitioners. That means his talismans can withstand the attacks of any Second Stage Practitioners!
And since everyone in the Solstice Kingdom were all at the First Stage, it will be extremely rare for Fang Lin to find someone who can breach his defenses.
Since he had lots of talismans, Fang Lin was not shy to use them to block Ling Tian’s attack. He threw a bunch of them towards Ling Tian’s incoming sword slash.
To Fang Lin’s surprise, all those talismans he used broke against Ling Tian’s attack! But to his relief, Ling Tian’s attack also dissipated.
Fang Lin had a cold sweat as he realized that even though Ling Tian was also in the First Stage, his current fighting prowess was comparable to that of a peak Second Stage Practitioner!
That was how unfair Ling Tian was!
Fang Lin silently cursed to himself as he realized that he had to finish off Ling Tian as early as possible. With his current Origin Energy, Fang Lin can only use 3 moves against Ling Tian.
With the talismans he held, Fang Lin was sure that he can withstand more of Ling Tian’s attacks. The only problem lies on what he will do once he uses all the talismans up.
“Hahaha, Fang Xiushang, I did not expect you to get such high-quality talismans. Even I had no way to get that many talismans. Too bad most of my treasures require a higher stage before I can use it.” Even though he sounded regretful, Fang Lin knew that Ling Tian was plainly mocking him.
So what if you had these talismans? I have better treasures than that! You are lucky I cannot use them as of now! That was clearly Ling Tian’s message for him.
“Even your talismans are powerful, they are also limited right? In that case I will just attack you until you run out of them.”
Fang Lin now knew that Ling Tian had already seen through his talisman dilemma. Since Ling Tian now knew that Fang Lin’s talismans will be used up later, he only had to continue attacking Fang Lin.
Once Fang Lin loses all his talismans, it will be game over for him.
Ling Tian then continued his assault while Fang Lin merrily used his talismans. While all of this was happening, the half-step Pure Yang Universe Flame and the half-step Pure Yin Cosmic Ice in front of Fang Lin started to take a form.
Ling Tian who was watching Fang Lin’s every movement saw the change. He saw a yin-yang symbol forming in front of Fang Lin.
The half-step Pure Yang Universe Flame was clearly the yang part while the half-step Pure Yin Cosmic Ice was the yin part.
This new form of theirs radiated a powerful ice-fire aura that even Ling Tian could feel.
Fang Lin let out a laugh as he saw his gamble paying off!
Since Fang Lin could not combine the half-step Pure Yang Universe Flame and the half-step Pure Yin Cosmic Ice, the next best thing that he could do was to emulate the yin-yang unity.
With him being the Yin-Yang Godly Divine Beast, using the half-step Pure Yang Universe Flame and the half-step Pure Yin Cosmic Ice to represent his Yin-Yang insight will not be that hard.
Making them interact with each other as Yin-Yang was slightly easier than forcing them to mix.
After all, Yin-Yang was all about the harmony between the Yin and Yang. Letting them interact with each other was better than forcing them to be together.
Had it been other people, even though they could think of using the half-step Pure Yang Universe Flame and the half-step Pure Yin Cosmic Ice the way Fang Lin did, they will not succeed since they do not have the Yin-Yang Godly Divine Beast Bloodline.
Fang Lin knew that this created move of his was not as powerful compared to mixing the half-step Pure Yang Universe Flame and the half-step Pure Yin Cosmic Ice together. But his new move was much more stable and can last longer.
Fang Lin was extremely delighted with his new attack. He enumerated all its benefits on his mind just to see its awesomeness.
 The half-step Pure Yang Universe Flame and the half-step Pure Yin Cosmic Ice will interact with each other following the Yin-Yang Principle of balance and harmony.
 This harmonic relationship will make the half-step Pure Yang Universe Flame and the half-step Pure Yin Cosmic Ice sustain each other through a symbiotic relationship. This means they will exist as long as they supply energy to each other.
 This symbiotic relationship will also make the half-step Pure Yang Universe Flame and the half-step Pure Yin Cosmic Ice to mutually strengthen each other. This strengthening was not as explosive as compared to mixing them together, but it had one advantage. This strengthening will increase over time.
That means that in a combat, this combination of half-step Pure Yang Universe Flame and the half-step Pure Yin Cosmic Ice will just get stronger and stronger as time passes by. This increase in strength was gradual, but it was there.
That means the longer the combination of the half-step Pure Yang Universe Flame and the half-step Pure Yin Cosmic Ice can sustain itself, the stronger it will be.
Upon seeing these benefits, Fang Lin decided to what name he shall give this new attack of his.
‘Yin-Yang Perpetual Ice-Fire Wheel!’
“Even Wang Hao will surely feel shivers if he hears this cool name.” This was what Fang Lin thought to himself as he stared at Ling Tian, whose eyes were wide as he looked at the Yin-Yang Perpetual Ice-Fire Wheel.
“How the hell can you do that? That follows the principle of Yin-Yang! You… are not Fang Xiushang… you are Fang Lin!”
“Tch. So my cover was blown now huh.” Fang Lin knew that his identity might be discovered if he uses this technique. But for the Pan Gu Divine Tablet and his survival, he was willing to risk even his identity.
Fang Lin then stopped using his talismans as he made his ‘Yin-Yang Perpetual Ice-Fire Wheel’ meet Ling Tian’s sword slash head-on.
The ‘Yin-Yang Perpetual Ice-Fire Wheel’ let out whistling sounds as it barreled towards Ling Tian’s attack. The ground was covered with scorching fire and frigid ice as the ‘Yin-Yang Perpetual Ice-Fire Wheel’ let out its destructive aura.
Even the air started to feel funny, with Ling Tian feeling as if he was in a hot, humid desert and a cold, snowy plain at the same time.
Ling Tian’s expression turned serious as he realized this ‘Yin-Yang Perpetual Ice-Fire Wheel’ of Fang Lin was a high-caliber technique. This power coming from a First Stage Practitioner was slightly unprecedented.
The only thing he could now was to strengthen his swordforce as he made his sword slash more consolidated. Ling Tian walks the path of the Sword, so he must trust his swords. Letting himself be pushed back by Fang Lin’s attack was a big no-no for him.
The collision of the two attacks let out a shockwave that almost swept Fang Lin and Ling Tian off their feet. They could only stare as Ling Tian’s sharp sword intent battled with Fang Lin’s rotating wheel.
To Ling Tian’s delight, he could see Fang Lin’s Yin-Yang Perpetual Ice-Fire Wheel’ being pushed back by his sword slash. From this, one could see that his strike was the one stronger. But his expression turned grim when he realized that the ‘Yin-Yang Perpetual Ice-Fire Wheel’ was not dissipating at all!
It was still being pushed back, but its essence and form was still there. Ling Tian could see it unceasingly pushing back against his attack, as if it was a water current raging against a wall.
Then to his surprise, Ling Tian saw the ‘Yin-Yang Perpetual Ice-Fire Wheel’ suddenly becoming stronger. It was as if it was being supplied with something that made it gradually stronger. He could only watch as the ‘Yin-Yang Perpetual Ice-Fire Wheel’ became bigger and bigger until it dwarfed Ling Tian’s sword formation.
Even though Ling Tian knew that his sword attack will be already overwhelmed, he did not retreat. His pride as a swordsman made him have fate on his own sword.
After all, this sword slash was a part of the sword-arts that he comprehended from one of the best sword manuals in the Universe. He could not just allow it to retreat against a brat’s immature creation.
Ling Tian roared, as he focused his mind and soul on reinforcing his sword. His swords responded in kind, letting out a mighty glow as its aura turned more and more destructive.
“Your new technique will not do anything against my sword that represents my beliefs!” Ling Tian shouted to Fang Lin.
“We shall see about that old man!”
Fang Lin and Ling Tian did not dare to use other things at this clash. For them, this face-off between Fang Lin’s ‘Yin-Yang Perpetual Ice-Fire Wheel’ and Ling Tian’s First Slash was a validation on which of their killing attacks were stronger.
Both of them let out a shout as their attacks reached their limits.
Countless sword qi lacerated the ground and the air. Sword marks could be seen everywhere as the sword qi spread out. Objects that can burn burned and objects that can freeze froze.
From this, one could say that the ending of that clash was momentous.
The remnants of the clash brought forth a mist that reduced the visibility. Inside that mist, a figure could be seen standing up as he raised his hands in the air. The figure looked down at another figure lying face-first in the ground.
Even though there was no visibility, the standing figure knew who the person on the ground was.
“Haha, Fang Lin, can you see it? I am standing!” Ling Tian let out a laugh as he looked at the figure on the ground.
“Even though I could not see you in this mist, I am sure that its your body down there. What’s the matter huh? Can’t stand up?”
The mist was so thick that Ling Tian could not see the appearance of Fang Lin’s body. But he was sure that Fang Lin must be on the brink of death already. After all, Ling Tian had it bad.
Even though Ling Tian was standing up, he also was suffering from grievous injuries. His skin was scorched while his body was riddled with ice spikes. He was clearly in pain, yet he stood up to validate his power.
“You see this Fang Lin? I win!”
