Upgrade Specialist in Another World - Chapter 1350
Chapter 1350: Defeating The Enemy
The Thunder God’s Judging Halberd was a mid-divine tier soul armament. It had no spirit in it, but it was still overwhelmingly powerful. So powerful in fact that even the Returner Armor would have trouble fending off a blow from it. And a downward swing of it onto the head would be impossible to stop.
There wasn’t any time for Bai Yunfei to recall the Cataclysmic Seal or Fire-tipped Spear to save him. He had been caught right as he was activating Soul Ignition! He hadn’t the chance to move out of the way or block it with anything, but that didn’t mean Bai Yunfei was going to die that easily!
He didn’t have to move at all, in fact. All he needed to do was just think !
The downward stroke of Liang Yinshen’s halberd was true. It went through Bai Yunfei’s head and then the rest of his body!
But he didn’t feel any ‘resistance’. Liang Yinshen felt as though he had just whiffed air! In front of him, Bai Yunfei’s outline flickered as if transparent. His attack went through an illusion of him!
“This move again!!”
Liang Yinshen roared in anger. He wasn’t going to be outdone by the same move twice! Having predicted that something like this would happen, he brought his halberd back and waited. He knew that in two seconds, Bai Yunfei would reappear in his original spot!
Liang Yinshen wasn’t going to hold back. It was a simple matter to wait and prepare for Bai Yunfei to reappear! Twisting his waist to bring his halberd back, Liang Yinshen swung his halberd so that it’d travel through Bai Yunfei’s hip and bisect him in half!
It was a killing stroke that’d certainly kill Bai Yunfei if it struck. Whether by bisection or having his spine crushed by the blow, Bai Yunfei was sure to die!
On the eve of Liang Yinshen’s victory, the loud clanging sound of metal hitting metal could be heard. He felt metallic resistance push back at his halberd. The shock transmitted up through his weapon and into his hands, jolting them enough for his skin to crack!
Bai Yunfei did appear in the same spot two seconds later as Liang Yinshen thought. But the Thunder God’s Judging Halberd didn’t go through him as expected—it was stopped by a golden piece of armor!
“The Triumphant Flame!!”
Liang Yinshen gasped in surprise!
The Regalia, the Triumphant Flame, stopped his fatal blow!
Bai Yunfei had already prepared the Core Stone’s effect to save himself. He was more than ready to dodge the deadly attack and wasn’t at all worried about Liang Yinshen’s attack. Though not worried, Bai Yunfei knew he wasn’t out of danger just yet. Since his strength was already back thanks to Soul Ignition, he thought about what technique would be best to deal with him.
Though he wasn’t able to use the Triumphant Flame as he wished, Bai Yunfei was still able to make use of the powerful defenses it offered. It was essentially a shield for him to make use of to block Liang Yinshen’s attack.
Liang Yinshen’s blow wasn’t enough to stop Bai Yunfei from doing anything else. His right hand blurred for just a second before he retrieved the Vampiric Demon Edge from his space ring!
A bloody light pulsated out from the Vampiric Demon Edge once it appeared; it’s +12 additional effect had activated!
+12 Additional Effect: Heal from all wounds instantaneously. Increase all stats by 300% and dull the sense of pain by 50% for an hour. All damage sustained within that hour will have its severity amplified by 200% afterward. Cooldown of 24 hours.
But that wasn’t the end! Another part of Bai Yunfei’s body burst open to draw out blood from the wound. Amounts of it flowed eerily from the wound toward his right arm and into the Vampiric Demon Edge!
+10 Additional Effect: Pay a blood price to increase the power of the user and item. Gain 1% of attack and 2% increase to overall stats for every percentage of blood taken. Duration ends when no more blood is given.
This was the moment Bai Yunfei had been waiting for. After using Soul Ignition to replenish his strength, he’d use the +12 additional effect of the Vampiric Demon Edge to increase his strength and the +10 additional effect to increase it again!
On the other side, Liang Yinshen was in a heavy state of confusion. Rather than kill Bai Yunfei, he watched as his opponent survive the deadly blow and suddenly exploded with strength!
Bai Yunfei wasn’t at the level of a Mid-stage Soul Saint anymore, his aura was reflecting that of a Late-stage Soul Saint!
The pigment of Bai Yunfei’s skin grew red. Similarly, his eyes grew pink as blood seeped into them. He roared primalistically before swinging the Vampiric Demon Edge vehemently at Liang Yinshen’s waist!
The cry Liang Yinshen gave was one of deep-seated fear. He could no longer ignore how big of a threat Bai Yunfei was! In a rapidly-made decision, the man reflexively brought his halberd back to protect himself.
Something metallic slammed into his halberd, but Bai Yunfei felt as if all of the force had been transferred into him instead. The bones in his arms cracked under the pressure before the rest of his body was blown away like a recently-fired cannonball!!
Pain gripped at his heart, but not due to his arm bones cracking. The object that was breaking apart was…none other than the Thunder God’s Judging Halberd!!
Several cracks could already be seen on the surface of the halberd!
The Soul Sealing Mandate said before that Liang Yinshen had greatly damaged the Thunder God’s Judging Halberd in his battle with Wu Tianhun. Its current state was hardly better than back then with its spirit destroyed and its vessel practically in pieces, but at least it was battle-capable for just a little longer.
But continual assault by the Cataclysmic Seal and the Fire-tipped Spear had nearly knocked out the rest of its durability. A blow from the Vampiric Demon Edge was enough to cause the halberd to lose the very last of its durability!
The last of Liang Yinshen’s calmness was gone. The damage to his halberd was far too much for him to handle. He was panicking. Wiping the blood from his lips, he began to circulate his soulforce to stabilize himself.
The rapid sound of wind displacement frightened him even more. Bai Yunfei wasn’t flying toward him, meaning something else was coming at him!
Looking back around, he saw a giant-sized Cataclysmic Seal come crashing into him!
Left without a choice, Liang Yinshen was forced to bring his weakened halberd up in front of him.
The cry of pain that chimed out from the Thunder God’s Judging Halberd was even worse than when it clashed against the Vampiric Demon Edge. Against another Regalia, the halberd could only groan and send more of the force into Liang Yinshen instead.
Arms shaking, Liang Yinshen watched as his hands were forced to loosen and drop the halberd from his grip before he was once again sent flying.
A good portion of Liang Yinshen’s moral dropped once his Regalia had been disarmed from him. He didn’t even manage to try and stage a counterattack when he saw an even more frightful sight!
The Cataclysmic Seal exploded with a red light, showering the entire world with its glow and enveloping the Thunder God’s Judging Halberd in it. The halberd flew into the Cataclysmic Seal, and like a stone sinking into water, it slowly melted into the Cataclysmic Seal!
The +14 additional effect had finally activated!!
“What…” Liang Yinshen’s pupils were the size of a needle now. His jaw dropped open and his face went pale as the pain in his soul suddenly spiked! His connection with the Thunder God’s Judging Halberd had been severed!
Liang Yinshen let out a heart-wrenching scream of pain as the loss of his soul armament hit him. Black and violet light exploded off from him in violent bursts as he clutched at his head with both hands and began to thrash about!
Even during his thrashes of pain and agony, Liang Yinshen was still on the alert. He could hear something else coming at him! A figure in red with a bloody sword! Like lightning, the figure flickered toward him before raising his sword up to deliver a downward stroke!
But there was still more to that attack! From his left and right, a red streak and a gray streak f;ew at him! The Fire-tipped Spear and the Soul Extinguishing Needle!
A three-pronged attack! Escape was an impossibility now. Death was all but confirmed. Steeling his nerves, Liang Yinshen raised both of his hands to begin performing a series of arcane-looking handseals!
Energy began to roll off in waves from Liang Yinshen, but in ways that were both mysterious and unsettlingly powerful…
Then in the next second…all three of Bai Yunfei’s attacks converged!
The Vampiric Demon Edge made contact first. Cleaving air and biting into his flesh, the Vampiric Demon Edge cut down his left shoulder and across to his torso to the right side of his hips!
The next was the Soul Extinguishing Needle. It pierced Liang Yinshen’s throat while the Fire-tipped Spear embedded itself deep into his chest!
“I did it!!”
Bai Yunfei’s eyes lit up with glee for a moment before he realized his mistake, “Wait! This…this is just an avatar!!”
Despite his sword cutting the man practically in two, Bai Yunfei didn’t see any blood! Not a single trace of blood could be seen from any of the three wounds despite Liang Yinshen’s aura dropping drastically! The reason why it dropped wasn’t because his strength was waning…but because it wasn’t his real body! It was an avatar Bai Yunfei just struck!
A powerful aura popped to life several kilometers away shortly afterward; Liang Yinshen’s real body had somehow appeared out of thi nair!
Somehow, through his arcane ability, Liang Yinshen managed to switch places with his avatar!
That was how he survived! Rather than take on a fatal blow himself, Liang Yinshen switched his body out with an avatar! It would hurt him immensely, but he’d still be alive!
An avatar didn’t have a body made from flesh and blood, but damage done to it was the same as doing damage to the soul. The attacks from the three soul armaments were all powerful in their own capabilities, and their combined forces equated to a tremendous amount of pain for Liang Yinshen. A majority of his strength bled out from him when his avatar was struck, but not even that was enough to hide the fury he held for Bai Yunfei!
He was going to self-destruct!!
Before his avatar could fully disappear, he’d force it to self-destruct!
Just as his avatar was beginning to prime itself to blow up, a white ball of light flew toward it!
It had been another surprise for Bai Yunfei to see his opponent escape death again, but he still had a few tricks up his sleeves! Before the avatar could go through with self-destruction, Bai Yunfei threw out the Soul Sealing Mandate!
The effect was instantaneous. Its power activated, the Soul Sealing Mandate let out a flash of white light and covered Liang Yinshen’s avatar in it!
The rapid build-up of soulforce came to a stop at once. Liang Yinshen’s avatar stood there, frozen stiff now that it was sealed!
Bai Yunfei turned his attention back to Liang Yinshen just in time to see him break free from Shen Pojun, Xiao Qi, and Wu Lie’s encirclement. He was trying to fly back down to earth!
“Trying to run?!”
Bai Yunfei roared. Calling his soul armaments back to him, Bai Yunfei began to follow Liang Yinshen back down!
