Chapter 3298: The Devata Artifact is Exposed
Although Dugu Wen was shocked, his eyes were still brimming with disdain when he looked at Duan Ling Tian. It was only natural since Duan Ling Tian’s shocking strength was not a threat to him at all. He was a Seven Stars Celestial Emperor, and a titled Celestial Emperor; he was far superior to ordinary Celestial Emperors. If he were to strike with all his might, an ordinary Celestial Emperor might not even be able to withstand it, let alone a mere titled Celestial Lord like Duan Ling Tian. He said, “Duan Ling Tian, there’s no doubt your strength is remarkable. You should be proud of yourself for possessing such strength as a mere Celestial Lord.”
At this time, Dugu Wen was unable to see Duan Ling Tian who was inside the Pine Willow Divine Tree. The tree was so real that one could hardly tell it was a Godly Image Phenomenon.
“However, it’s unfortunate that you won’t be able to withstand even a single strike from me!” Dugu Wen said again before a seven-foot-long spear appeared in his raised hand. The spear that shot out of his body and complemented his youthful appearance was undoubtedly an Emperor Grade Celestial Weapon at the very least.
“You talk too much nonsense!” Duan Ling Tian’s provocative words rang from inside the Pine Willow Divine Tree.
Dugu Wen’s eyes narrowed upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words. His expression turned frosty in just an instant.
“You’re seeking death!” Dugu Wen said as he brandished the spear in his hand. In the next moment, a wave of green energy surged out of the tip of the spear, transforming into countless spear rays.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
As the spear rays shot out, they seemed to solidify into bamboo spears like how water would turn into icicles. Their speed increased tremendously after turning into green bamboo spears, destroying everything in their path.
Dugu Wen sneered as he manipulated some of the green bamboo spears to attack from the front while the others surrounded Duan Ling Tian before they shot toward him. To be precise, they were shooting toward the Godly Image of the Pine Willow Divine Tree.
Once the Godly Image Phenomenon shattered, Duan Ling Tian would be forced to face Dugu Wen and the numerous bamboo spears.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
The sky full of green bamboo spears looked terrifying; it was as though they would impale Duan Ling Tian over and over again without rest.
“Kid, let’s see you withstand this attack of mine! I’ve used all the profundities from the law of wood in this attack. No one who’s not a titled Celestial Emperor will be able to withstand this attack!” Dugu Wen said confidently with a sneer on his face.
Upon hearing Dugu Wen’s words, Duan Ling Tian’s expression turned solemn. He called out to four of the Five Divine Elements in his Little World since he was already using the Clear Heaven Divine Wood’s power to solidify the Pine Willow Divine Tree. Faced with this attack from Dugu Wen, he felt an unprecedented pressure. He knew the slightest mistake at this moment would result in his death.
“Go!” The World Cleansing Divine Water’s voice rang almost immediately after Duan Ling Tian’s voice fell. Its power surged out toward Duan Ling Tian.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Following that, the Profound Divine Metal, the Chaos Divine Flame, and the Chaos Divine Earth lent their powers to Duan Ling Tian without holding back at all. After all, the time these three Divine Elements spent with Duan Ling Tian was much longer compared to the World Cleansing Divine Water and the Clear Heaven Divine Wood.
“Kid, get rid of him!” The Chaos Divine Earth’s childish voice rang in Duan Ling Tian’s ears. He was naturally rooting for Duan Ling Tian. After choosing Duan Ling Tian as its host, it had already reaped many benefits. Apart from itself, there was no other Chaos Divine Earth that managed to evolve from the third form to the sixth form in just a month. If he had chosen another host, it would have been considered good if it could evolve to the fourth form.
The Profound Divine Metal scoffed before saying coldly, “So what if he’s a titled Celestial Emperor? How can a mere titled Celestial Emperor be a match for someone the Five Divine Elements have acknowledged?”
“One’s bound to leave a trail of corpses in one’s wake on the road to becoming a supreme powerhouse. Even titled Celestial Emperors aren’t an exemption to this!” the Chaos Divine Flame added.
The energies from the four Divine Elements entered the seven-colored Pine Willow Divine Tree and merged with the energy from the Clear Heavens Divine Wood. Since the Seven Orifices Exquisite Sword had also boosted the tree, giving it dazzling colors as a result, the presence of the energies from the Five Divine Elements could not be seen at all. Moreover, their auras were also hidden by the aura of the Pine Willow Divine Tree.
Duan Ling Tian had obtained this Godly Image Phenomenon of the Pine Willow Divine Tree by refining the energy from the true Pine Willow Divine Tree. Therefore, after being powered by the Clear Heaven Divine Wood, it was no different from a real Pine Willow Divine Tree.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Meanwhile, the sky full of green bamboo spears continued shooting toward Duan Ling Tian, looking as though they were going to leave a corpse riddled with holes behind.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian’s contemptuous voice rang from the Pine Divine Tree again. “You say that nobody apart from titled Celestial Emperors can withstand your strike? What a pity they’re only empty words! Today, I’ll let you see how I, a titled Celestial Lord, easily withstand your attack!”
As soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, the branches from the Pine Willow Divine Tree began to move.
At this moment, Huang’er, the soul of the Seven Orifices Exquisite Sword, appeared in front of Duan Ling Tian. With a flick of her sleeve, she transformed into a streak of seven-colored light before shooting into the Pine Willow Divine Tree as well.
With this, the strength of the Pine Willow Divine Tree rose tremendously once again. After all, the strength of a devata artifact with and without a soul was in completely different leagues.
“Huh?” Dugu Wen’s eyes widened imperceptibly as the seven-colored light shining from the Pine Willow Divine Tree grew even more vivid and dazzling after Huang’er had entered it as well.
“An… A-an artifact soul?! This… T-this kid possesses a devata artifact?” It did not take long before Dugu Wen discovered Duan Ling Tian’s weapon was not an Emperor Grade Celestial Weapon, but a devata artifact. Moreover, it was a devata artifact with a soul!
With this discovery, Dugu Wen began to laugh heartily. “Who would’ve thought I, Dugu Wen, would be so lucky to come across a devata artifact!”
However, in just a moment, his laughter faded until only a stiff and frozen smile was left on his face.
He watched as his green bamboo spears clashed with the branches of the Pine Willow Divine Tree like two troops of ten thousand soldiers. His expression was one of disbelief as he watched his green bamboo spears being shattered one after another by the branches of the Pine Willow Divine Tree.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Although the green bamboo spears’ momentum was terrifying, they were all shattered by the branches from the Pine Willow Divine Tree.
“How’s this possible?” Dugu Wen said in a daze. At the same time, the greedy expression intensified on his face. “His devata artifact isn’t just an ordinary devata artifact!”
Dugu Wen was convinced the only reason Duan Ling Tian was able to shatter his attacks was due to the devata artifact. He assumed the extent of Duan Ling Tian’s strength was his law of space that had been comprehended to the mastery stage, the Godly Image Phenomenon, and the devata artifact. He said, “Brat, I didn’t expect you to possess such a powerful devata artifact. However, it’s an insult to the devata artifact to be wielded by someone like you! Soon, your devata artifact will belong to me!”
As he brandished the Emperor Grade Celestial Spear in his hand, he said coldly, “Although the strength you displayed with the help of the devata artifact is shocking, this is as far as you go.”
At the same time, beams of green light shot out of Dugu Wen’s body as a tyrannical energy surged out. “I’ll let you have a taste of the power of my fused profundities… Although you’ve comprehended the law of space, one of the Four Supreme Laws, to the mastery stage, it’s not comparable to the power from a fusion of profundities. It’s unfortunate that you won’t have a chance to learn how to fuse your profundity since I’m going to kill you!”
