The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 460
Chapter 460: Is Dual Wielding really the Norm?
With both of Bai Huangdi and Jiang Chen’s cultivation base suppressed at the Third Stage, the amount and quality of the abilities that they can use are strictly limited.
But even with that, Fang Lin was still able to watch a spectacle with his very eyes.
It was Bai Huangdi who attacked first, with his left hand releasing a lightning bolt.
This lightning bolt was as thick as a man’s thigh, and it immediately hit the incoming Jiang Chen.
“So he practices the Law of Lightning…” Fang Lin thought as he could feel that the energy that Bai Huangdi was using was Core Mana.
The quality of Bai Huangdi’s core must have been high too, as Fang Lin could feel that his Core Mana was thick and vigorous.
Not to mention that the power contained within that lightning attack was so high it can damage Fourth Stage Practitioners easily.
“Damn, his insights on the Law of Lightning must have been really high…” Fang Lin thought sourly as he tried to watch Jiang Chen’s next move.
Instead of dodging out of the way of the lightning attack, Jiang Chen just gave the incoming attack with an indifferent look as he muttered,
“Sword of Severing.”
Jiang Chen waved his right hand, and a gray-colored sword beam appeared, which headed straight to the lightning attack.
There was no extravagant explosion that happened once the two attacks collided with each other.
Both of the attacks just disappeared, as if they did not exist at all.
When Jiang Chen saw this, he seemed to be not shocked, as if he already expected this to happen.
As for Bai Huangdi, it was quite obvious that he was surprised by what he saw. Bai Huangdi then shook his head to recover his calm.
He stayed quiet for a few seconds before he showed an enlightened expression.
Bai Huangdi gave Jiang Chen a cocky smile as he said,
“Impressive, that sword of yours managed to sever the connection of my Lightning Pierce with me. That was the reason that my attack disappeared…”
“Oh so that is how it is…” Fang Lin thought with amazement as he gazed at Jiang Chen with more adoration.
Sword of Severance, just like what Bai Huangdi said, seems to have the function to sever things.
The original purpose of this attack must have been for other things, like severing people’s limbs or their control over their artifacts.
But this time, Jiang Chen used the Sword of Severance to sever the connection between Bai Huangdi and his lightning attack!
With the power inside that lightning attack, it must have needed large amounts of mana to even exist.
Bai Huangdi must have been feeding his lightning attack with mana in order for it to stay longer.
But with Jiang Chen severing the connection between Bai Huangdi and his attack, the mana being fed by Bai Huangdi disappeared, which led to the dispersion of the lightning attack.
After hearing this, Jiang Chen suddenly spoke much to the surprise of everyone.
Fang Lin however, did not like the voice that he heard, as it was way too different from the way that Jiang Chen talked when he was alive.
“I wanted to sever your limbs, but that armor that you wear is preventing me from doing that. Thus I can only resort on cancelling your spells and attacks…”
Bai Huangdi grimaced after hearing this, as he knew that most of his Third Stage Spell and attacks right not will not work on Jiang Chen.
In that case, Bai Huangdi can only do that.
“Even if you can somehow neutralize my long-range attacks, there is no way for you to survive this!”
Bai Huangdi then propelled himself forward as he decided to fight Jiang Chen in close-quarters.
“This strategy might work, as Bai Huangdi is also a martial artist…” Fang Lin thought as he realized that Bai Huangdi is not an idiot.
“Since Jiang Chen said that he could not really damage Bai Huangdi’s body, then the only way for Bai Huangdi to win is by using his body!”
Jiang Chen seemed to have seen through this as he thrusted his right sword towards Jiang Chen.
“Hero, do not think that by fighting me in close quarters that you can win. My way is the Way of the Sword, so fighting against me closely will be your greatest regret!”
But before the right sword could plunge itself on Bai Huangdi’s head, Bai Huangdi suddenly let out a shout as he said,
Bai Huangdi’s body was then covered by his Martial Aura, and the effects of it were quite astounding.
Bai Huangdi’s body suddenly turned immaterial as his whole body became lightning itself.
Jiang Chen’s sword went through the transformed body with no resistance, which elicited a raised eyebrow from Jiang Chen.
“So, that is Bai Huangdi’s Martial Aura…” Fang Lin then tilted his head as he was able to slightly deduce the power of the Transformation Martial Aura.
Its power must have been to change the composition of Bai Huangdi’s body into something else.
Of course Bai Huangdi must be extremely familiar with the new composition that he will change to, or else he will be in a dire situation.
Since Bai Huangdi is a Lightning Practitioner, for him to use the Transformation Martial Aura to have a lightning body was not surprising at all.
But because Bai Huangdi is suppressed at the Third Stage, the duration of the effects of the Transformation Martial Aura must have been limited too.
5-10 seconds might be the possible time windows that Bai Huangdi can use right now.
“Now then, show me what you will do next.” Fang Lin thought as he watched Jiang Chen, who was eyeing the lightning Bai Huangdi with wariness.
‘Swish, swish, swish,” Jiang Chen tried severing the body parts of Bai Huangdi, but since he is immaterial right now, Bai Huangdi can easily reconnect his lighting body even if it was severed by Jiang Chen.
Bai Huangdi’s only problem was time, as he knew that his current state will not last for long.
Bai Huangdi then gritted his teeth as he decided to risk it!
First, Bai Huangdi changed his body shape to become a large lightning ball.
This ball then rolled towards Jiang Chen who began to back away from the lightning ball.
But the actions of Jiang Chen were too late, as he was quickly covered by a literal ball of lightning
“Fizz…” Fang Lin secretly gave Bai Huangdi a thumbs-up as he saw what happened.
Bai Huangdi must have already deduced that the souls captured by the Yama Kings were used in a way similar to Jiang Chen right now.
Bai Huangdi must have then thought that since Jiang Chen was just a soul who possessed a body right now, then Yang-Based attacks that damage souls could possibly damage Jiang Chen too!
And since Bai Huangdi’s Lightning Laws are also Yang-Based, then using them to badly hurt Jiang Chen is highly possible.
But with the severing attacks of Jiang Chen, the only way that Bai Huangdi can land his lightning attack is if that attack was made in such a state that severing it away from Bia Huangdi will be impossible.
Bai Huangdi’s current lightning body fits these criteria perfectly, and now Bai Huangdi is using it to beat Jiang Chen.
And it was effective.
Bai Huangdi and the other spectators could see that Jiang Chen’s body was slowly disintegrating under the assault of Bai Huangdi’s lightning body.
Bai Huangdi was about to declare his victory for today when he suddenly felt pain inside him.
“What…” Bai Huangdi could not believe that he is experiencing pain right now.
After all, his Transformation Martial Aura gave him the ability to transform into lightning, and at this state, Bai Huangdi must have been unaffected by physical attacks.
But if that was the case, then how can Bia Huangdi explain why is feeling so much pain from a sword that is stabbing his lightning body right now?
The sword that stabbed Bai Huangdi was the sword in Jiang Chen’s left hand.
Unlike the sword on the right hand, which was letting out a domineering presence, the sword on the left hand felt and looked so simple that Bai Huangdi thought that this sword was just for decoration.
But right now, this sword was something that forced Bai Huangdi to hastily retreat.
He had no choice but bring himself 5 meters away from Jiang Chen, and when he went back to his real body form, he saw a gaping wound on his left thigh.
Upon seeing this injury, Bai Huangdi grimaced as he thought to himself,
“That sword on the left hand is just as dangerous as the one to the right. As for the abilities of the left hand sword, I know nothing about it since I just saw it right now. But I am sure that its power was the reason it was able to damage me even in my lightning form.”
Bai Huangdi and Jiang Chen then looked at each other for a minute as they inspected each other’s condition.
There are countless holes in Jiang Chen’s body, which are all smoking heavily. As for Bai Huangdi, the hole in his thigh was bleeding profusely, as if it was extremely hard for it to heal.
Both of them were injured, but their injuries were not that heavy enough to be considered fatal.
Jiang Chen suddenly let out a sigh as the two swords on his hands disappeared.
Bai Huangdi let out a tsk as he unwillingly retracted his martial aura back.
Jiang Chen then casted his cold gaze towards everyone near him as he said,
“My King Seigneur sends his regards to all of you. Now that I have fully acquainted myself with the forces here, it will be time for me to go back to my Kingdom.” He then looked back at Bai Huangdi as he continued talking.
“Do not worry Bai Huangdi, I will be back for you once my King decides to attack this place. When that time comes, we will be free to kill each other with pleasure…”
Jiang Chen then looked towards the general direction of Fang Yu as he said,
“As for you Fang Yu, my King asked me to fetch for you. So, I implore you to come with me.”
“Sorry, but I can’t.” Illusion Fang Yu sheepishly replied as she scratched her head. “I still have some important things to do here, so…”
“My King have already guessed that you will do something like this…” Jiang Chen said with a sigh as he glared at Fang Yu. “My King said that if you were to refuse to come back with me, then the only thing I could do is to leave you here. But once we invade this place, all of us, including the King, will treat you as the enemy!”
Jiang Chen then disappeared in front of them before they could say anything in reply.
After seeing what just happened, Illusion Fang Yu let out a shaky laugh as she said,
“Well, that was something else, right?”
