The chill outside mimicked the chill in everyone’s heart . If this beam were to hit their system, the entire place would become a large glacier - instant destruction .
“That’s only a Quasi Artifact, then just how terrifying would the real thing be? Probably enough to destroy all of Myriad Lineage?” Someone murmured .
No wonder why progenitors didn’t leave behind their Paragon Artifacts . This power was insane!
“Is it over? I think he’s finally dead . ” One ancestor talked to himself while looking at Li Qiye .
“No physical shell can withstand that freezing force, even an Eternal will die for sure . ” His peer stated .
“It’s about time…” People heaved a sigh of relief .
Shaochen had plenty of supporters in the crowd . They placed their future on him and dared to go against Yang Radiance .
If Shaochen were to lose to Li Qiye, they would have a dark future waiting ahead of them . But now, his success meant that he was capable enough to lead Myriad in the future and that they have made the right choice .
“Hmph, so what if Li Qiye is strong, he’s still no match for Young Lord Mu . ” A god child from a system sneered: “Remember, the young lord is the successor of the Mu with numerous treasures . Not to mention just Li Qiye, he can destroy a system with no problem . ”
“You’re right, Li Qiye overestimates himself . It’s suicidal to go against the young lord . ” A saint child joined in .
One ancestor sighed and said with regrets while looking at Li Qiye: “He lacks resources compared to the Mu and would have definitely become a great master if he didn’t die here . He’s really one-and-only . ”
“Hmph, you’re nothing compared to my progenitor’s power . ” Mu Shaochen scowled at Li Qiye .
He turned his sight towards Wu Bingning and laughed: “I told you, you chose the wrong guy, he isn’t qualified to oppose me . Come and play nice in my clan, I’ll let you enjoy boundless glory and splendor . ”
Wu Bingning stared coldly at him and said: “Don’t be so pleased with yourself just yet, you don’t know who you are messing with and even when you do, you would already be dead . ”
The young lord laughed in response: “Are you listening to yourself? But whatever, I have plenty of ways to make you willingly obey me . ”
“Wait, what is that?!” Someone shouted .
Everyone saw a ray of light emanating from Li Qiye’s chest, just like a jumping spark .
“Buzz . ” Li Qiye began to move against the freezing power, seemingly unaffected . His motion remained fluid and free . He walked forward, unencumbered by the ice around him .
Not a single drop of water or a fragment of ice was sticking to his body after he got out of the massive glacier .
“You!” Mu Shaochen and the rest of the crowd couldn’t believe it . His Quasi Artifact didn’t damage Li Qiye at all .
“Just a Quasi Artifact . ” Li Qiye gently shook his head before smiling: “Far inferior compared to the real thing . I can control the extremities of yin and yang . This freezing power is akin to spring where snow melts away, a tinge of coldness amidst the warm weather . I merely wished to see how strong it was and here I am, disappointed . ”
“Testing a Quasi Artifact with his own body?” Jaws dropped to the ground after hearing his intention .
After all, those with a tiny bit of common sense knew to use yang affinity or raw power against icy techniques instead of those water swords . Water belonged to the yin and softness affinity . Using that against ice was the same as adding oil to the fire, or courting death .
Li Qiye made a mistake that no one else would make, but it turned out that he was only testing the artifact .
A powerful ancestor felt dizzy and murmured: “The, the guy is insane… I don’t think anyone else in this world can be worse than this, using his own body to test a Quasi Artifact? Is he tired of living?”
Li Qiye smiled: “A quasi one is boring indeed, I’ll test your progenitor’s Paragon Artifact if I have a chance later, that’ll be more interesting . But as for now, time to end this . ”
“Clank!” He took out a red sword . When one had a better look, they would find that the thing was actually made from fire, akin to a divine sword being heated to a red shade, still under control . All of the temperature and actual flame were still stored within the blade . Even the sun felt cold in comparison . The most impressive part was not its temperature, but rather Li Qiye’s perfect mastery over the flame .
Everyone shuddered in response . True God? Treasures? Even the world itself would instantly burn to a crisp upon touching this sword . Ashes wouldn’t be left behind .
Sure enough, space near the sword was melting away with a viscous distortion .
Flame, another move from Finality Sword . It was the embodiment of yang and power, containing the hottest temperature in the world .
Mu Shaochen became afraid right away and decided to attack with his jewel, sending another ray forward .
“Come . ” Li Qiye smiled and casually swung his sword forward as well .
“Buzz . ” This was a contest between hot and cold . Evaporation filled the sky with obscurity .
In the end, extreme cold lost and the terrible temperature came knocking for the falcon god and Mu Shaochen .
“Boom!” The youth borrowed the momentum to form a massive wall before them . In this very second, he also ran away with lightning speed, crossing through space and disappearing into the horizon .
He had prepared a way out from the beginning, locking onto a different set of coordinates in order to run the moment something was wrong .
Right when the falcon god was caught off guard by this, the momentum failed and evaporated as well .
“Break!” He used the strongest defensive technique of his life since there was no time to run .
“Ah!” His agonizing howl echoed . The technique failed to stop the flame so the falcon god became nothingness, instantly evaporating without remnant ashes .
