Ultimate Scheming System Chapter 825
Xu Que looked at Qin Wei in the pit on the mountain, bleeding from everywhere, but he felt no mercy for him. Another King of Tough-Acting Fist crashed down! It was the same 40,000-points fist pushed to its limit – a golden beam flared and the gleaming golden humongous fist thundered down.
There was a huge blast that shook the forest and the sky and all that was around it. It was more horrifying than an atomic bomb! It meant that Xu Que’s King of Tough-Acting Fist was wholly completed.
On this day alone, he had exhausted much of his Taoist Connotation just by undergoing the tribulations. Now that he had battled Qin Wei at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage, it had depleted all of his Taoist Connotation. A total of three fists worth 40,000 points each had all landed solidly on Qin Wei!
Looks like the future battle against the Emperor of the Saint Palace won’t be easy either! Xu Que muttered to himself.
He had initially thought that once he stepped into the Form Synthesis Stage, the maximum power of the Tough-Acting Fist would be enough to annihilate a cultivator at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage. However, it now seemed like he had underestimated the terror of a peak Great Vehicle Stage cultivator!
Upon suffering three consecutive blows, Qin Wei was only bleeding from injuries, but was still alive and kicking. If you think about it, this cultivation stage was frightening indeed. So this is the power of an entity just a step short of an Immortal cultivator!
Suddenly, Qin Wei who had lain motionless in the pit, coughed out some blood and immediately jumped up from the ground, as if afraid that Xu Que would punch him again. The speed at which he bounced up was so fast that it could not be captured with the eyes.
Xu Que’s expression turned slightly peculiar as waves of disbelief heaved in his heart. To think that he could run that fast despite being injured to that extent!
“Li Bai of the Exploding Heavens Faction!” Qin Wei bellowed angrily all of a sudden.
Xu Que turned to look at him. Qin Wei had already appeared in the air not far away from him, the cuts on his body slowly healing. He glared furiously at Xu Que.
“Yo, you’re not dead yet?” Xu Que sneered.
In all honesty, Xu Que was not as relaxed as he sounded. He was almost ready to run!
He had painfully managed to beat Qin Wei into that shape by exhausting all of his Taoist Connotation, but he never thought that it was possible for Qin Wei to recover from his injuries so quickly. His strength greatly exceeded Xu Que’s assessment of someone at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage.
“Very well, Li Bai of the Exploding Heavens Faction, very well indeed! I have truly underestimated your abilities!” Qin Wei smiled out of the blue – it was a furious smile laced with hatred.
The underestimation was mutual; however, Qin Wei knew that he was the one who had suffered a loss!
Listening to his words, Xu Que just fished out an Escape Emblem and smirked, “General Qin, go back and practice for a few hundred years more! I have no interest in fighting an opponent like you. Till we meet again!”
Once Xu Que had finished speaking, he quickly tried to escape by activating the Escape Emblem.
“Hmph, trying to run?” Qin Wei scoffed icily, and suddenly he clasped both of his hands as if clutching the whole void by its throat! At that moment, the scenery before Xu Que became slightly blurred. The murky brilliance had engulfed everything within a ten-mile radius!
The Escape Emblem burst into ashes in his hand and lost all its effectiveness. It could no longer help him escape from this restriction.
“I’ll see whether you can escape now!” Qin Wei shouted and clapped his palms together and drew out a sophisticated mark with his hands.
Xu Que frowned and his face turned slightly black. It was not that he could not leave. After all, he had just obtained a High-Class Escape Emblem. However, that’s a precious lifesaving item. To use it here would be such a waste!
Although Qin Wei was much more powerful than he had anticipated, he had managed to injure him. Therefore,whether it be the High-Class Escape Emblem, the Forgiveness Hat, or the Ultra Invincible Emblem, Xu Que thought that it was not worth it to use them here.
Suddenly, a brilliant blue light grew out from Qin Wei’s fingers and shot toward the sky! Then, he opened his mouth wide. A blue pearl emerged from his mouth and floated above his head. Once the blue pearl appeared, all of the Spiritual Qi within that area gathered around him automatically, like fans seeing their idol, and began to gush quite insanely! Seconds later, the blue pearl suddenly enlarged and transformed into a giant water droplet. There were ripples on its surface, which sent chills down onlookers’ spines.
“Crap, what was that?” Xu Que couldn’t help but flinch.
Ding! “Detected a soul-bound Half-Grade Celestial Artifact. The Host should be on alert!” The System notification sounded an alarm.
Xu Que jumped. A Half-Grade Celestial Artifact?
Crap, that pearl is a Celestial Artifact? How could he fight against that?
How could anyone win against a peak Great Vehicle Stage cultivator with a Celestial Artifact?
“Eh, no, I have a Celestial Artifact too!” Xu Que suddenly realized.
Back when he was still under the Five Elements Mountain, he had also obtained a Celestial Artifact. Moreover, it was a Low-Grade Celestial Artifact, which was a grade higher than a Half-Grade Artifact!
However, that Celestial Artifact was used mainly as a support weapon, to increase or decrease someone’s life span.For its burst power or practicality in war, it seemed to have no great use. More important, as he was still in the Form Synthesis Stage, he could not fully unleash the prowess of the Ancient Life and Death Wheel. After all, the reason why they are called Celestial Artifacts was that they were weapons used by Immortals.
Back when he was at the Void Training Stage, Xu Que was only able to control 500 years of life span. Now that he was at the Form Synthesis Stage, he could at most control 1,000 years of life span! To someone at the peak of the Great Vehicle Stage, it was just a painless peck, unable to deal any lasting damage.
However, Qin Wei was different. He was just a step away from becoming an Immortal cultivator, and he had that Half-Grade Celestial Artifact in his hands. The amount of power he could unleash would be unimaginable!
“Hold on, a fight’s a fight; you’re a wuss if you use a Celestial Artifact! How could you call yourself a hero if you use a Celestial Artifact to bully your opponent?” Xu Que yelled.
Sarcasm flashed across Qin Wei’s face as he laughed coldly, “All I want right now is to kill you as soon as possible. As for the matter that I used a Celestial Artifact to bully a cultivator at the Form Synthesis Stage, no one else would know if you die here today!”
With that, he raised both of his palms, and an overwhelming gush of True Core Strength overflowed. It engulfed that enlarged blue pearl completely.
The next moment, the pearl began to rotate at a crazy speed and ignited a powerful suction. Xu Que was caught off guard and was almost pulled away by the pearl.
However, the good thing was he reacted quickly and injected his True Core Strength to the ground below, pinning himself to the ground.
At the same time, a huge tree was torn in half by the suction power and flew through the air, going straight for the blue pearl.
Xu Que’s eyes widened as he witnessed the huge tree smashed into sawdust, disappearing without a trace!
Holy crap, is that Celestial Artifact a blender? Anything it sucks in gets smashed into nothingness! Xu Que exclaimed to himself, horrified.
“You will die today. I’ll make sure of it!” A serious killing intent gleamed coldly in Qin Wei’s eyes.
Vast amounts of True Core Strength poured out of his palms madly and gushed into the blue pearl in an endless stream. The speed at which the pearl was rotating became faster and faster; the higher the rate, the greater the suction!
However, Xu Que could already hardly remain standing on his feet. The prowess of the Celestial Artifact was not something he could forcibly take on at this stage.
“Looks like I have no choice but to use that move!” Xu Que narrowed his eyes and smiled coldly at Qin Wei, “General Qin, let me ask you something. Have you seen a true man who lasts five seconds?”
As soon as he said that, he waved his hands and a shining emblem appeared.
It was the Ultra Invincible Emblem!
