Chapter 3299: Profundity Fusion
In fact, comprehending the profundities of a law to the mastery stage did not mean one had completely mastered a law. In a way, one could say that comprehending all the profundities to the mastery stage was only the beginning. Even after comprehending all of the profundities from a law to the mastery stage, although one could cast them all at the same time, the power was not as strong as if one had fused them into a single powerful technique.
For example, before Dugu Wen, the Hundred Variant Celestial Emperor, became a Celestial Emperor, he did not master all the profundities from the law of wood to the mastery stage. However, after becoming a Celestial Emperor, he managed to comprehend all of them to the mastery stage. Following that, he began to study the way to fuse the profundities from the law of wood. His greatest achievement so far was fusing three profundities from the law of wood; the three profundities from the law of wood that he managed to fuse were the Vine Profundity, the Twining Profundity, and the Regeneration Profundity.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
At this moment, the green streaks of light from Dugu Wen were swiftly solidifying into long vines that resembled huge pythons as they shot toward Duan Ling Tian.
“Brat, have a taste of the fusion of three of my profundities from the law of wood!” Dugu Wen sneered as he looked at the Pine Willow Divine Tree’s Godly Image Phenomenon in front of him that just destroyed his previous attacks. The Pine Willow Divine Tree was, naturally, not his target; his target was Duan Ling Tian who was in the Pine Willow Divine Tree.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The numerous python-like vines lashed unceasingly from Dugu Wen’s body. There were so many of them that they covered the entire sky, causing the entire place to turn dark.
“Fused profundities?” Upon hearing Dugu Wen’s words and his attacks that intensified, Duan Ling Tian’s expression turned slightly grave in the Pine Willow Divine Tree. Previously, when he had comprehended all the profundities from the law of space to the mastery stage using the Supreme House Divinity, he had confirmed that comprehending the profundities to the mastery stage was not the end of mastering the law of space during a conversation with the World Cleansing Divine Water in his Little World. He had learned that he could further his comprehension by learning how to fuse his profundities. Apart from that, he learned that he could fuse two, three, or even four profundities from the law of space. When one could finally fuse all of the profundities together, one would be able to utilize the full power of a law. Even in the Realms of Gods, those who accomplished this feat were incredibly scarce. In the Realms of God, those who managed to fuse eight profundities from a law were all without an exception top powerhouses in the Realms of Gods. As for those who managed to fuse all the profundities from any of the Four Supreme Laws, they would directly become supreme powerhouses. Therefore, it was not surprising there was no one who managed to achieve such a feat in the Devata Realms.
Duan Ling Tian thought to himself, ‘Fusing profundities from a law would get more difficult as one progresses. In Devata Realms, those who managed to fuse four profundities are as rare as a phoenix feather and a unicorn horn. Even among all the Heavenly Emperors in the Devata Realms, there isn’t one who managed to fuse four profundities. Nevertheless, most Heavenly Emperors have managed to fuse multiple triple-profundity fusions. This is also why they’re much stronger than ordinary titled Celestial Emperors. Therefore, ordinary titled Celestial Emperors who have fused three profundities are considered quite powerful. If Dugu Wen becomes a Ten Directions Celestial Emperor and mastered another three-profundity fusion, he would definitely enter the upper echelon of titled Celestial Emperors in the Boundless Heaven.’
While Duan Ling Tian was pondering on this matter, the python-like vines from Dugu Wen’s triple-profundity fusion had already arrived near the Pine Willow Divine Tree. Upon seeing the python-like vines, Duan Ling Tian scoffed as his gaze turned frosty. At the same time, the branches of the Pine Willow Divine Tree began to swing around again.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
A series of thunderous explosions rang in the air when the branches and the vines collided. In the beginning, the vines seemed to be destroyed by the branches, but in just a blink of an eye, they would regenerate and coil themselves around the branches of the Pine Willow Divine Tree. In the end, not only did the Pine Willow Divine Tree that Duan Ling Tian manifested fail to destroy the vines, but it was even bound by the vines, rendering them immobile. Even after the vines bound the Pine Willow Divine Tree, the vines shooting out from Dugu Wen’s body did not stop and continued to attack and bind the Pine Willow Divine Tree.
Inside the Pine Willow Divine Tree, Duan Ling Tian’s expression turned incredibly grim. ‘So this is the might of a fusion? He only fused three profundities, but its might far exceeds that time when he cast all seven profundities at the same time. Moreover, this shouldn’t be the extent of his strength. If he uses the other five profundities he has yet to fuse along with this triple-profundity fusion, it’s likely that he’ll be able to easily crush me…’
At this moment, Dugu Wen said indifferently, “Brat, you, an insignificant Celestial Lord, managed to make me, a Titled Celestial Emperor, unleash my triple-profundity fusion; you can feel proud even in your death.”
Despite the indifference in Dugu Wen’s voice, he was inwardly shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s strength even if he had attributed it to the power of the devata artifact in Duan Ling Tian’s possession. After a beat, he added, “After your death, I’ll make sure to unleash the full potential of your devata artifact.”
Based on Dugu Wen’s words, it was clear that he was certain of Duan Ling Tian’s death. In his opinion, the devata artifact was already his.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
At this moment, the attacks from the python-like vines intensified, causing the pressure on Duan Ling Tian to increase by many folds.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
At this moment, another series of explosions rang in the air as the branches of the Pine Willow Divine Tree suddenly erupted with energy. Following that, the tree’s life force soared before new branches began to grow on it. At the same time, the branches continued to swing around, deflecting the vines that were attacking them.
“Let me see how many more branches you’re able to grow.” Dugu Wen smiled coldly when he saw Duan Ling Tian’s desperate struggle. Green streaks of light continued to shoot out of his body, forming new vines before attacking Duan Ling Tian. It seemed like there was no end to these vines at all.
At the same time, the World Cleansing Divine Water’s voice promptly rang in Duan Ling Tian’s mind. “Little Tian, the Divine Tree of Life can help you grow a little more than 100 branches at most. He has yet to use his other profundities along with this triple-profundity fusion; it’s clear he thinks this move is sufficient to kill you. If he uses his other profundities along with this fusion, your chances of surviving wouldn’t have been good. Therefore, this is a chance for you. As the situation stands, although your chances aren’t high, I wouldn’t say it’s small as well…” Then, she paused for a moment before she said, “The preparation on my side has been completed…”
Upon hearing the World Cleansing Divine Water’s last sentence, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up as his expression turned cold. “Good! Let’s begin then!”
With just a thought, the air around Duan Ling Tian began to ripple and distort as he used the Teleportation Profundity. In just an instant, the two Celestial Beasts in his Little World were transported behind Dugu Wen.
Dugu Wen who was looking at the Pine Willow Divine Tree coldly, waiting for his attack to destroy it, suddenly felt chills run up his spine. His expression changed drastically. His instincts helped him sense the threat at his back almost immediately. Even as a titled Celestial Emperor who had experienced many things, he could not help but shudder slightly.
The streaks of light stopped shooting out from Dugu Wen’s body as he tried to change his position when a force that was equivalent to the power of a double-profundity fusion landed on his back. Although his purely defensive Emperor Grade Weapons protected him in a timely manner, its light dimmed as soon as it blocked that destructive force.
