Wang Shihua could make others shudder just by the mention of his name . His greatest tale included wounding a young True Emperor, pushing this person to the edge .
Such a fierce character was now Shaochen’s guard, something quite unexpected .
This painted a better picture of the Mu’s power for the crowd . A famous Eternal from Myriad still needed to rely on them . Just how powerful was this clan in Imperial? Other systems in Myriad might not be a match for it .
“Heavenrend Viper? More like Heavenrend Insect . Those who try to stop me will die . ” Li Qiye declared .
The crowd thought that only Fiercest would call Shihua an insect before everyone .
“Haha . ” Shihua laughed; his expression unclear due to his veiled hat but his tone certainly changed: “Back then, a True Emperor wouldn’t dare to talk to me like this . ”
“A man doesn’t dwell on his past accomplishments . ” Li Qiye waved his sleeve dismissively: “Fierce in the past, just another servant in the present . Hurry and show off your skills so I can take care of both you and your master . ”
Everyone could sense an anger building in Shihua, no longer able to stay as calm as before .
After all, he was a big shot but Li Qiye treated him as if he wasn’t worth a single coin . Self-restraint had a limit; even a Buddha could lose his temper .
“Boom!” A majestic aura erupted - chilling and sharp with gales sweeping away the clouds for ten thousand miles .
Everyone felt as if there was a large and ancient insect awakening underground, seemingly capable of devouring the time of others, turning them to ashes instantly . Its bloody jaws enjoyed the taste of time the most .
People naturally shuddered after feeling this terrifying aura . They felt that they were no longer in this world, now trapped inside the creature’s mouth .
“Clank! Clank!” Golden plates came together around Shihua to form a complete armor .
There was a substantial and evolutionary change after adorning this set of armor even though his face was still covered .
He was no longer an old man but more of a general with a brutal temperament . Just one wave of the hand could split the earth and destroy the stars .
The armor flickered brightly, but this light was different from the shimmering of metals . It looked surreal almost like the flow of time or the void affinity .
Because of this, the spectators got an illusion that he was everywhere in this area .
“Heavenrend Armor!” The one who recognized him earlier murmured: “He used it to defeat Warcloak True Emperor . ”
Some might not have heard of Wang Shihua or Heavenrend Viper, but they have certainly heard of Warcloak . This was an emperor from Regalia System who ascended at a very young age . His talents were exceptional yet he was still defeated by Wang Shihua .
Shihua floated in the sky, seemingly in control of all . Though he wasn’t actually that high up in the air, he gave off an unreachable and awe-inspiring feeling .
“Come, time to fight . ” He was direct and firm with his few words .
“Very well . ” Li Qiye smiled and soared to the sky .
Everyone watched the incoming battle with bated breath .
“How is he compared to Dracoform Martial God?” Another asked .
“I don’t know, but we’ll find out soon . ” An ancestor shook his head .
“Buzz . ” Shihua melted into space and disappeared from sight .
“A stealth technique?” An expert asked .
“No, it’s a higher-level technique - void refinement . ” An ancestor answered: “He’s an expert of spatial manipulation, his main offensive technique . ”
“Boom!” A fist came out of nowhere straight for Li Qiye’s chest . The move wasn’t flashy but it contained a void affinity, giving it a transparent appearance .
Li Qiye waved his hand and space came sweeping by like a large wave .
“Boom!” Both the fist and the wave rumbled after the impact .
This wasn’t about technique or merit laws, just straight up spatial manipulation .
Few cultivators were versed in spatial manipulation, let alone refining the void . Shihua was clearly good at both .
“Break!” Li Qiye smiled and punched the air, only moving his fist a single inch . However, the power of this fist assaulted the nearby area, turning it into a black hole after a deafening explosion .
“Crack!” Pieces of broken temporal fabrics scattered everywhere .
However, these pieces suddenly had runes flowing around them . They came together to form multiple layers of armor to stop Li Qiye’s punch .
Though the layers eventually crumbled, it was still a successful defense .
“His armor can melt space . ” An ancestor noticed something: “So he is capable of void refinement, but more importantly, this armor allows him to assimilate with the area around him . ”
“Boom!” In the next second, Li Qiye was blown back down to the ground, buried in a huge pit of mud .
He stood up and everyone could see a totem mark on his chest with the shape of a circling dragon . A movement of the yin and yang started and the totem spread .
This dragon was the thing knocking him down . It seemed to be omnipresent in this area, the master of this spatial domain .
This meant that while one was inside this area, there was no resisting the dragon .
“Yin Yang Void-dragon Strike . ” An ancestor had heard of this move - Heavenrend’s very best - the one that defeated Warcloak True Emperor .
“How is his injury?” This question loomed on everyone’s mind .
“Haha, Li, still arrogant now? Our Elder Wang is far stronger than that falcon god . ” Mu Shaochen guffawed .
