The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 257
Chapter 257: ⏳ and ●
Fang Lin’s face turned solemn after he saw the sword barreling towards him. From what he can observe, this sword must be the product of Orias’ Nature Power.
“From what I knew, his Nature Power was of the Void, or the Emptiness of the outer space. With that power, he can create weapons fused with space itself. Because the weapons were fused with the space itself, it can ignore obstructions and hit its intended targets. Aside from that, he can also use powerful techniques related to Void.” Fang Lin’s mind churned as the sword was bearing towards him.
“Because my ghost form had reached its limit, I cannot use it now. And with that space fusion, his swords will just ignore the defense of my Ox Form… The best thing I can do is to avoid those swords of his and hit him back hard!”
But Fang Lin was also unsure on what kinds of powerful abilities Orias had. Fang Lin had a strained smile as he realized he had to fish out all of Orias’ moves.
“From what I can see, this Orias seems to be also proficient in soul arts. But with my Violet Martial Aura, I can ignore that damage. But with his expertise, I think I will not be able to damage his soul too….” Fang Lin then took a deep breath as he realized what has to be done.
“I just have to pepper him with my attacks!”
Fang Lin knew that his inability to move was related to Orias’ Void Power. “He must have used his Void Power to restrict the space around me!” Fang Lin thought as he tried to strain against his unseen bonds.
“Fine! Here I go!”
Wang Hao who was still observing from the sidelines, widened his eyes after he saw that Fang suddenly sprouted two long ears. The ears looked cute just like a rabbit. But Fang Lin’s eyes looked ancient, as if it can stare through time itself.
Wang Hao resisted the urge to feel up those rabbit ears as he realized what beast Fang Lin was using right now.
“It’s the Eon Rabbit!”
The power of the Eon Rabbit lies on its manipulation of time.
One important thing to be noted is that its time manipulation abilities were of lower tier compared to Wang Hao’s Space-Time Gyroscope.
That meant Wang Hao’s time manipulation abilities will just crush the Eon Rabbit’s time manipulation abilities.
But even with that limitations, the Eon Rabbit’s skill in combat was still high.
Fang Lin’s ancient-looking eyes glowed as he stared at the incoming sword.
To Orias’ surprise, he felt his connection to his created sword suddenly being cut off. Orias realized that this happened because the time flow of the sword was now different from the normal time flow!
Fang Lin changed the time flow of the sword, making it go slower than it should have done. Fang Lin then grimaced, as that moved put some pain on his eyes. Using the Eon Rabbit’s ability will put a continuous strain on his eyes, meaning there’s a limit on how many times he can use the time manipulation abilities.
Aside from that, Fang Lin also could not use any offensive time abilities with the Eon Rabbit Essence. They were all combat support abilities.
But what he did now was enough.
With the sword slowed down, Fang Lin started his next move.
With the mutation of his bloodline, he was able to collect three Dual Marks already. But with the experience that he had this time, he was able to create his 4th Dual Mark.
On his left hand, the symbol ⏳(hourglass) appeared, while on his right, the symbol ●(blackhole) appeared. These symbols were representing time and space respectively.
This was Fang Lin’s 4th Dual Mark, the Space-Time Dual Mark!
Fang Lin obtained this from observing his Master’s Space abilities and the Eon Rabbit Essence Core inside of him.
Yes, the symbol might be redundant, with Fang Lin’s Eon Rabbit Essence Form already able to manipulate time.
But the Eon Rabbit’s power and Fang Lin’s ⏳ symbol manipulates time in different ways.
The Eon Rabbit’s time manipulation was mostly focused on crowd control and combat support. Meaning, most of its time abilities were there to assist a combatant, like slowing an opponent down or making Fang Lin’s attacks turn quicker.
Meanwhile, Fang Lin’s ⏳ symbol was focused on offensive time abilities like weakening materials by advancing their age.
If the Eon Rabbit’s abilities and Fang Lin’s ⏳ symbol were used together, Fang Lin’s time abilities will be raised to another level.
But even with this, Wang Hao’s time manipulation power will still trump over Fang Lin. That’s just how ridiculous Wang Hao’s Space-Time Gyroscope was.
As for the ● symbol, it allowed Fang Lin to be able to use some space related abilities. Of course Wang Hao’s space abilities will also trash Fang Lin’s.
But even with that, Fang Lin’s newest Dual Mark will still allow him to be more flexible on combat.
But even if Fang Lin already gained these marks, he cannot just use the Space and Time Marks repeatedly like Wang Hao does. Fang Lin’s space-time marks had usage limits on them.
Activating a dual mark requires the consumption of his Origin Energy. If he will use the ● symbol, Fang Lin of course had to use his Origin Energy.
With the high energy consumption of his marks, Fang Lin knew that the ● and ⏳ symbol can only be used 10 times with his current state!
If he achieves a higher stage, the amount of times he can use the ● and ⏳ will increase. But right now, he had to make do with 10 uses for each mark.
And if he used those two symbols as a Dual Mark, he will only be able to use that Dual Mark 3 times!
That’s the limitation of Fang Lin’s Dual Marks. They are one of his most powerful and flexible arsenals, but their usage was limited by the amount of Origin Energy that he had!
Fang Lin activated the ● symbol, and he was now able to feel the space around him. He could now see how Orias was able to restrict him.
Orias turned the ‘movable’ space around Fang Lin empty. Even if Fang Lin wanted to move, he will not be able to since he had no space to move out.
It’s comparable to how a person cannot just walk straight if there was a huge chasm in front of him. Since the ground beneath his feet was empty, he had nowhere to move to.
That was what Fang Lin was experiencing. Since the space itself was missing at the vicinity around his body, Fang Lin could not really advance even a bit.
“You sneaky….” Fang Lin muttered to himself as he used his ● symbol.
He suddenly disappeared, reappearing behind Orias.
Orias, who saw Fang Lin disappearing, let out an excited grin as he realized what Fang Lin had done.
“So you can teleport huh…”
Of course, Fang Lin’s teleportation abilities were weaker than Wang Hao’s. If the conditions were right, Wang Hao can teleport at a Planetary Scale.
As for Fang Lin, he was only able to teleport for around 2 meters.
Fang Lin still had loads of progress to do before his teleportation become powerful.
But right now, the proximity between Fang Lin and Orias allowed Fang Lin to appear behind him.
“Since you used your move now, allow me to attack next.” Orias muttered as Fang Lin started to feel danger approaching him.
“Void Punch!” Orias shouted, punching the air in front of Fang Lin!
Fang Lin narrowed his eyes as he saw an empty fist now sailing towards him!
Fang Lin realized that this fist will dig a hole on his body if he allowed himself to get hit!
Fang Lin consumed more Origin Energy as he teleported once more.
He was able to dodge to Void Punch, but Fang Lin’s expression did not look good.
With that teleportation, Fang Lin will only be able to use his teleportation 8 more times. And from the looks of it, Orias can spam his Void Punch at a higher number.
“From what I can see, you are not really a master of space manipulation. You seemed to only gain that ability with that special bloodline of yours!” Orias said with an excited expression. ”
That means there is a limit to the number of times you can teleport!”
Fang Lin sighed as he saw Orias able to deduce the limitations of his ability!
“How many teleportations can you still do? 10? 100? Or 1000?” Orias asked as he cupped his chin. “Whatever. The only way to find that out was for me to continue attacking you! Good luck surviving!”
Fang Lin only had a strained smile on his face as he realized Orias was a more difficult opponent than what he could expect.
He then teleported once more as another Void Punch went sailing at his former spot. Fang Lin grimaced as the thought to himself,
“Time for plan Beta….”
