"Hm?" Wu Xiao's action took Duan Ling Tian by surprise. Initially, he had thought Wu Xiao would turn around and flee after discovering the power of his attack. If that had happened, his attack would have easily landed on Wu Xiao, effectively killing him. He was surprised that Wu Xiao decided to charge directly at his attack as though he was disregarding his life.
Duan Ling Tian thought to himself, 'Wu Xiao is really smart. He's worthy of being called the strongest Eight Tribulation Celestial in Mouro Realm.' Although they were enemies on the battlefield, Duan Ling Tian could not help but admire Wu Xiao's courage.
Duan Ling Tian knew Wu Xiao was trying to survive by going against his attack directly. If Wu Xiao were to turn around and flee, his attack would have killed him immediately. He could tell Wu Xiao was using all his strength to resist his attack to weaken the attack. At that time, although Wu Xiao would be severely injured, he might not lose his life.
At this moment, an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial who was present on the scene exclaimed, "Duan Ling Tian's attack is remarkable!"
Most of the Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestials present on the scene could sense how formidable Duan Ling Tian's attack was.
"Even an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial without a Celestial Supreme Treasure wouldn't be able to cast such a powerful attack."
"You're right. This attack is comparable to the full strength of an ordinary Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial or the full strength of an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial with a Celestial Supreme Treasure!"
The expressions of the Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestials were extremely grave. Wariness filled their eyes when they looked at Duan Ling Tian. Initially, they had thought, even if the rumors were true, his strength would only be on par with them. Who knew his strength had surpassed them and was comparable to an ordinary Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial?
After a while, they gradually shifted their attention to Wu Xiao.
"Does Wu Xiao have a death wish?!" Someone asked.
Wu Xiao might be stronger than them, but it did not mean he would be able to withstand an attack that was comparable to the full strength of an ordinary Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. Why would he charge heads on at Duan Ling Tian's incoming attack?
Soon after, a thought flashed in one of the Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestials' mind before he exclaimed, "Wu Xiao is really smart!"
It did not take long before more and more Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestials began to figure out what Wu Xiao was trying to do. It seemed like it was the only thing he could do to retain his life.
An earth-shattering explosion sounded in the air as Wu Xiao, the strongest Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial in Mouro Realm, collided with Duan Ling Tian's attack.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
A series of explosions continued to ring in the air as shockwaves from the collision spread in all directions.
The weaker Bodiless Celestials had to retreat further away to avoid being injured. If Duan Ling Tian did not protect Han Xue Nai and Zhang Yi, they would have been severely injured by the shockwave as well. After all, the shockwave was the result of the collision between forces comparable to Eight and Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestials.
An explosion rang in the air as Duan Ling Tian's attack destroyed Wu Xiao's defenses and landed on Wu Xiao. He was instantly sent flying back. It was obvious he was severely injured as he vomited blood. At this moment, his eyes glinted. He gritted his teeth and tried to escape.
At this moment, Wu Xiao's speed had far surpassed the speed of an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. In fact, his speed was almost comparable to an ordinary Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial.
"Trying to flee? Do you think you'll succeed?" Duan Ling Tian was not surprised by Wu Xiao trying to escape after going heads on with his attack. In just a blink of an eye, a sword appeared beneath his feet, carrying him forward at an extremely fast speed as he chased after Wu Xiao. His speed was not inferior to a Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial.
Duan Ling Tian thought to himself, 'The fifth stage of the Sovereign Heart Sword is both a movement and offensive technique. It's as though I've mastered a movement and offensive Celestial Technique!' He had discovered earlier that he could simultaneously use the Sovereign Heart Sword and the Thirteen Green Lotus Swords to raise his strength. The two techniques complemented each other perfectly.
Using the Thirteen Green Lotus Swords along with the fifth stage of the Sovereign Heart Sword was like a movement Divine Ability. When Duan Ling Tian used this technique, his speed was comparable to a Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial.
With his speed, Duan Ling Tian quickly caught up with Wu Xiao.
Wu Xiao's expression changed drastically when he saw this. His heart was filled with despair as he thought to himself, 'The technique he mastered is both an offensive and movement Divine Ability?'
Earlier, Wu Xiao thought he had a chance of escaping even if he was severely injured since he did not think Duan Ling Tian would have the speed to chase after him. How could he have known that the technique Duan Ling Tian had mastered could work as an offensive and movement Divine Ability?
Duan Ling Tian did not waste any time. As soon as he caught up to Wu Xiao, he struck with all his might again.
Duan Ling Tian's attack landed on Wu Xia immediately.
This time, Wu Xiao no longer had the strength to resist and was instantly drowned by the attack.
The strongest Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial in Mouro Realm had died just like that!
Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes as he thought to himself, 'If there weren't any other Bodiless Celestials around, I might have let you live… However, I have to use you to set an example for the others….' In truth, he had admired Wu Xiao's courage. He would have allowed Wu Xiao to live if he did not need to use him to scare the others off. Regardless, he did not feel guilty. After all, Wu Xiao had taken the initiative to stop him with the intention of killing him.
The Bodiless Celestials broke out in a commotion. The Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestials could clearly see what had happened earlier while Seven Tribulation Bodiless Celestials could only vaguely see what happened. As for the weaker Bodiless Celestials, everything was just a blur to them.
"Wu Xiao died just like that?"
"The strongest Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial from Mouro Realm is killed by an Eminent Celestial?"
"T-this… How's this even possible? How can Duan Ling Tian be so strong?"
All of the Bodiless Celestials looked at Duan Ling Tian with fear in their eyes at this moment. He was, after all, an Eminent Celestial who was capable of killing an Eight Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. This meant that his strength was comparable to a Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial. An Eminent Celestial with strength comparable to a Nine Tribulation Bodiless Celestial! What kind of monster was Duan Ling Tian?
"He's even stronger than Feng Qing Yang, the Sword Cultivator from the Saint Province Realm, before he obtained the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial!"
"You're right. It seems like Duan Ling Tian's current strength is comparable to Feng Qing Yang after he had obtained the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial!"
"Well, he said earlier that Feng Qing Yang can be considered as his master in a way!"
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian had no interest in the conversation around him. He did not care about what those Bodiless Celestials thought. He decided to enter the location of the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial and called out to Han Xue Nai and Zhang Yi, "Let's go!"
Just as they were about to enter the area, Duan Ling Tian could sense an abnormality from the location of the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial…
