Unparalleled After Ten Consecutive Draws - Chapter 656
The might of Chu Kuangren’s Emperor qi increased once more!
Jian Feng’s expression changed upon seeing this. The quality of Chu Kuangren’s Emperor qi had far surpassed his by now.
Only those with a High-grade Emperor’s Core possessed such powerful Emperor qi.
No, even the Emperor qi from a High-Grade Emperor’s Core rarely possessed such might.
“How many strands of Emperor qi did he use to build his Emperor qi foundation? A thousand strands, or is it two thousand? Could it be even more?!
Jian Feng’s expression turned grim.
Many factors could affect an Emperor’s combat strength. However, the most important ones were mainly their Emperor’s Dao and Emperor’s Core.
If one was stronger than their opponent of the same realm in those two aspects, they would gain a significant advantage over them and challenge those in a higher rank too!
As of now, Chu Kuangren’s Emperor’s Dao and Emperor’s Core were stronger than his. He had even managed to master an Esoteric Art that only a few Emperors could.
In this case, it would be hard for him to win against Chu Kuangren even if he was in a higher cultivation realm.
Perhaps he would lose too!
“Heaven-Slaying Sword Drawing Technique.”
Chu Kuangren raised his hand and struck out with his sword.
Sword qi from his attack surged out like a crashing tide, causing the void to rumble wherever it went. It was so powerful that the spatial fluctuations started to build up back in the real world.
Jian Feng grunted. With the power of his Emperor’s Dao and Emperor’s Core channeled to its fullest potential, he unleashed a sword technique that turned the intertwining Daoist patterns into a gigantic white sword shadow. “Emperor Technique, Overarching Sword Stream!!”
The two great Emperor Techniques clashed and shook the void by tearing apart the surrounding space with both their sword qis.
In the end, Jian Feng could not defend himself from the power of Chu Kuangren’s Heaven-Slaying Sword Drawing Technique and was blasted away. By the looks of it, the attack had critically injured him as the Daoist patterns on his body started to show signs of cracking.
“I’ve lost this battle.”
No longer wishing to continue their fight, Jian Feng immediately admitted his defeat.
Chu Kuangren stopped attacking after hearing that. He, too, did not want to complicate matters before understanding the whole situation.
He retracted his power, opened a rift in the void, and returned to the real world.
Jian Feng came out with him as well.
They were still in the Black Heaven Sect’s territory at that time. Chu Kuangren shot a glare at Jian Feng and said, “Feel free to stay for the wedding reception. After all, you did present the couple with a wedding gift.”
After that, he turned and walked towards the Longevity Hall.
Jian Feng snorted before following Chu Kuangren.
As he stared at Chu Kuangren’s back with a surprised and inquisitive look, he wondered how could a new Emperor possess such terrifying combat strength.
‘What kind of secrets does this guy have?’
At the end of the wedding reception, the guests gradually left one after another.
A full moon hung in the night sky, and its moonlight shone like water.
Chu Kuangren was sitting on a couch with a sword ray circulating within him. Upon closer inspection, it was a white jade-colored sword ray.
That was… the Descendant Self.
Chu Kuangren was currently improving the Descendant Self Sword’s quality.
The Descendant Self Sword has been his trusty sword ever since he started his path of cultivation. Besides, it had experienced its fair share of fortunate encounters, such as merging with a sword soul and absorbing the purple haze during Chu Kuangren’s Sage tribulation. With that, the Descendant Self Sword was no longer what it used to be.
Now, Chu Kuangren has become an Emperor.
It was time he increased this sword’s quality to that of an Emperor Weapon.
Hence, Chu Kuangren was doing exactly that — using his Emperor qi to nurture the Descendant Self.
Soon, ten days had passed.
On this day.
The Descendant Self Sword let out a soft clang.
A powerful sword aura emanated and spread everywhere from its body, causing all of the swords in the Black Heaven Blade Mountain to tremble.
The Descendant Self Sword has finally become an Emperor Weapon!
“After all these years, you’ve finally upgraded into an Emperor Weapon. It’ll be a pleasure working with you from now on, partner.”
Chu Kuangren chuckled as he stroked the sword with his fingers.
The Descendant Self Sword trembled slightly, seemingly replying to him.
Chu Kuangren could also feel a sense of excitement coming from a certain consciousness. It was the Descendant Self Sword’s consciousness.
The Descendant Self was a sword that was alive.
After all, not just any weapon in the world would have a soul of its own.
Even an Emperor Weapon could not produce a soul on its own.
It could only manage a spiritual consciousness at most.
As for the Descendant Self Sword, it possessed a complete soul that none other Emperor Weapons had because it had merged with a sword soul and was enhanced by the Sage tribulation’s purple haze.
Therefore, Chu Kuangren had never treated the Descendant Self Sword as a normal tool but a true partner in combat instead.
Although he had obtained many Emperor Weapons, among which had greater power than the Descendant Self Sword, Chu Kuangren had never thought of replacing the latter with them.
With that, he sheathed the Descendant Self Sword and tied it to his waist.
After that, Chu Kuangren came out of his room.
At the Towering Heaven Palace’s courtyard, the three new Emperors, Lan Yu, Murong Xuan, and Leng Ningyu were mentally sparring with each other.
Three types of colorful Daoist patterns intertwined in the air, appearing ever so gorgeous and fascinating.
Meanwhile, Lil Bing, Nangong Huang, Shang Qingxue, and the others watched attentively from the side, striving to gain some insights from the mental spar that was going on.
Chu Kuangren was watching those three from the side too. He even activated his Eye of Revelation to analyze their strengths.
Lan Yu was the strongest among the three, having obtained a High-grade Emperor’s Core while her Dao has reached a Flawless quality.
She was seconded by Leng Ningyu, who had a Middle-grade Emperor’s Core while possessing a Flawed-quality Dao. This difference in quality was most likely due to both of their respective Daoist Physiques.
On the other hand, Murong Xuan paled in comparison to the two, with a Low-grade Emperor’s Core and an Ordinary-quality Dao.
After watching one match, Chu Kuangren did not disturb the trio. Instead, his figure disappeared from the spot and reappeared on a mountain peak hundreds of thousands of kilometers away from the Black Heaven Sect.
Once he scanned the surroundings with his Emperor Thought and made sure that no one was in the vicinity, he took out the female Emperor’s head. With a deep breath, he removed the Forbidden Sealing Talisman from it.
Chu Kuangren instantly sensed a peculiar spatial fluctuation that emanated from that head.
“Let’s hope everything goes smoothly.”
This time, he had come here to meet the Headless Empress.
To be precise, her name was Luo Shui.
She was a disciple of the Chaos Daoist Celestial.
As the peculiar spatial fluctuation from Luo Shui’s head spread far and wide, a rift soon opened in the void before Chu Kuangren, and a figure stepped out to meet Chu Kuangren.
The figure was headless.
It was one of the Seven Great Mysterious Manifestations, the Headless Woman.
She was also Empress Luo Shui.
Upon sensing the spatial fluctuation coming from her head in Chu Kuangren’s arms, Empress Luo Shui immediately attacked.
Her Dao was so powerful that Daoist patterns manifested in the void!
“She’s powerful, more powerful than the last time I saw her!”
“No, it’s not that she has gotten more powerful. It’s the Firmament Star’s Heavenly Dao. After it’s been restored to its full strength, it can now accommodate more power in this world!”
Chu Kuangren mumbled.
This meant that Empress Luo Shui had never exerted her full strength in the past.
The Firmament Star could not handle her full strength because of its damage in the Heavenly Dao. However, now that the Heavenly Dao had been restored, Empress Luo Shui could unleash more power than ever. Hence, her strength was naturally much more powerful.
Chu Kuangren lifted his hand and launched his Invincible Technique.
Two different surges of energy clashed in the void, sending terrifying shockwaves in all directions and rumbling the surrounding terrain within a ten thousand kilometer radius.
Several cracks even appeared in the void.
Both Chu Kuangren and Empress Luo Shui were pushed back from the impact.
“She’s many times stronger than Jian Feng and Qin Yu!”
“And that’s while not having a head as well. If she recovers her head, will her strength be that of an Expert— no, Perfected Emperor?”
Chu Kuangren activated his Eye of Revelation and started to analyze the Headless Empress.
As an Emperor, he could see more information about her and even deduce that she was at least a Perfected Emperor at her prime.
She had a Superb-grade Emperor’s Core and an Epic-quality Emperor’s Dao!
Superb-Grade Emperor’s Core and Epic-quality Emperor’s Dao!
Among the Emperors, possessing such foundations was extremely rare.
“Stop. You can have your head back now.”
Chu Kuangren then tossed her head towards her.
Empress Luo Shui immediately caught it and stopped attacking. The first thing she did was place her head back onto her body.
The moment her head and her body made contact, Chu Kuangren saw a faint blood-colored light radiating from the cut between them. After that, her flesh and bone started fusing rapidly.
“Oh, it seems like she can put it back.”
Chu Kuangren uttered in amazement.
