Beastmaster of the Ages - Chapter 513
Chapter 513: – Scarlet Flame StaffTianming’s words left everyone in the Dark Astral Battalion stunned . They didn’t cause a clamor, though, because he showed a strong confidence . On the contrary, they looked at him in a new light . As elders, they naturally had a sense of superiority in their age and experience .
But right now, Tianming’s words hadn’t just left an impact on Sun Xingyu, but everyone there .
“General, your confidence and pride are impressive,” Sun Xingyi laughed after a brief stun . Shortly after, the other warriors of the Dark Astral Battalion laughed along .
“Please . ” Tianming went on the spacious stage .
“Arrogant or not, we’ll know after the fight,” said Bai Zijin .
“Lady Bai, don’t misunderstand . I’m complimenting him when I say he’s arrogant . After all, only geniuses are qualified to be arrogant,” replied Sun Xingyu .
“Go up,” Bai Zijin said faintly .
The surrounding atmosphere that had initially felt joyous suddenly became tense . Tianming knew this was a necessary process, if he wanted to command this battalion . In a world where strength was respected, he had to defeat his opponent with his power to subdue them .
Now that he was the Astral General, how could he get ten thousand people to hand their lives to him if he didn’t have any ability? Retrieving the Grand-Orient Sword, Tianming plunged it into the ground and said, “Deputy General Sun, please enlighten me . ”
There was pressure coming from Tianming . In addition to the fact that he had cultivated the Imperial Will, he had a monarch’s natural temperament .
“Great . Please enlighten me as well!” Sun Xingyu laughed and jumped onto the stage . When he descended, the Dark Astral Battle Stage trembled .
“Make your move,” Tianming said, summoning his lifebound beasts . They were now in a territory, and they could do whatever they wanted in the future . But only after they won over Sun Xingyu .
“Defeat this fellow, and we’ll have ten thousand lackeys! Who knows, we might even have a harem of three thousand!” Ying Huo smiled .
“Brother Chick, have you forgotten the fear of being dominated?” Meow Meow advised .
“Get lost . I didn’t fight well back then . It’s just Bai Zijin!” Ying Huo harrumphed and straightened its feathers .
“Then let’s get Big Sister Bai to bring you back?” Tianming smiled .
“Brother Chick is chickening out . ” Lan Huang’s loud voice vibrated everyone’s eardrums . Listening to Lan Huang’s words, Ying Huo nearly fainted from its anger . How could something that shameful be spoken aloud? But in everyone’s eyes, they felt that Tianming wasn’t taking Sun Xingyu seriously .
“Isn’t he a little too arrogant?”
“A little . But wasn’t he like that when he shouted the Nineshades Clan’s name in the Decimo Dao Battlefield?”
“I have no idea if it’s good or bad . ” The discussions weren’t loud, but they could be heard .
“Alright now . Sun Xingyu is at the same cultivation level as Dongyang Fengchen . Back then, we won by ganging up on Dongyang Fengchen with his lifebound beast held up by the Soulfiend . It’s not certain that we can win this fight . We’ll just do our best,” said Tianming .
“Just screw him up and don’t cower!” Ying Huo replied .
Roars echoed over from the two colossal lifebound beasts beside Sun Xingyu . There were two apes, covered with black and red fur . The apes had robust limbs and long fangs, and were known as Burning Starfiend Apes .
Their order might be low, but they had reached maturity, unlike Ying Huo, so they had already drawn out their full potential . Working together, they wouldn’t be any weaker than Dongyang Fengchen’s Nethersea Regalfiend Hydra .
Welding the Scarlet Flame Staff with two lifebound beasts standing by his side, Sun Xingyu looked like a war god .
“I’ll be making my move now . Be careful!” Sun Xingyu called out, charging over with his lifebound beasts . The Burning Starfiend Apes’ roars were ferocious . Everyone could tell that he had no intention of going easy on Tianming .
“Are we competing in volume here? Brother Turtle, do your thing!” Ying Huo flew to Lan Huang’s head .
Raising its heads, Lan Huang unleashed a deafening roar at the Burning Starfiend Apes . Its voice formed a violent storm upon being empowered by Primordial Soundwave, swallowing the Burning Starfiend Apes’ roars .
“Don’t run . Let’s play together!” Lan Huang looked at the two apes without fear . Clearly, Lan Huang considered the apes as friends, seeing how they looked like the Soulfiend . Whenever it played with the Soulfiend, the commotion they created wasn’t inferior to that of a fight .
With that, a colossal twin-headed dragon collided with the two apes . The two heads were like two miniature beasts, and the apes would make a mistake if they ignored them .
At the same time, a bolt of black lightning flashed out . A black cat charged forth with rumbling lightning, taking on the Regal Chaosfiend form and pouncing on an ape . As the Ninefold Chaos Thunderscape on its body electrocuted its enemy, the Regal Chaosfiend bit the ape’s arm .
“Tough!” Meow Meow cursed . But its Myriadfiend Venomfang still managed to dig into the ape’s flesh, sending poison into its system . When the poison entered, there was nothing the ape could do to stop it from spreading .
The ape waved its arm and flung Meow Meow away . When it got back to its feet, Ying Huo’s attack came . The ape was confused by Ying Huo’s Infernal Haze, but it let out a ferocious roar and breathed fire that formed flaming spheres that attacked the clones .
“Are you giving me a shower?” Ying Huo laughed and charged out of the ape’s ability, executing Pyros Imperius with its Wings of Agni, along with the Thousand-Demise Sword .
Ying Huo’s cultivation of the Invincible Sword Body might be lacking, compared to Tianming, but it still managed to complete the Thousand-Demise Sword . Its achievement even surpassed Li Shenxiao and shocked Weisheng Yunxi .
The ape was suffering from Meow Meow’s poison to begin with, so it was already weakened . When Ying Huo’s Wings of Agni pierced its abdomen, a bloody hole was left behind . The hole wasn’t enormous, but it was deep enough to reach the ape’s stomach .
The Burning Starfiend Ape screamed and backed away . Its companion was being held up by Lan Huang, while Sun Xingyu was facing Tianming and Meow Meow . No one could save it . All of a sudden, a blue chain reached over and bound it . The ape was furious and tried to escape, but as it struggled, the chains dug deeper into its flesh .
“Get up!” a roar echoed . The spectators were shocked to see the Burning Starfiend Ape being lifted off the ground and brought smashing back down . When the ape crashed to the stage like a meteor, the ground trembled . The impact from the smash had broken the ape’s bones .
“Stop!” Sun Xingyi executed the Firefiend Staff Canon . He charged over to Tianming, trying to stop him from continuing his attack . But before he could even reach Tianming, a chick and cat came at him from both directions, forcing him to defend himself .
Otherwise, even if he could stop Tianming, it would be at the cost of being heavily injured by the two lifebound beasts . Ying Huo’s Invincible Sword Ki could even pierce the Burning Starfiend Ape, and Sun Xingyu’s physique was nothing in comparison to that .
As a result, everyone watched on as Tianming poured thousands of Invincible Sword Ki strands into the Three-Thousand Starfield . The Burning Starfiend Ape screamed, but it was tightly bound by the chain, no matter how it tried struggling . If it wanted to break free, it would have to snap the Three-Thousand Starfield .
Tianming lifted the ape once more and swung it around before smashing it on the ground again . He repeated it three times, and the final time, he smashed the entangled Burning Starfiend Ape against the other one .
The other ape was fighting Lan Huang . But just when it had managed to break through Lan Huang’s Mountainsea World, it was smashed by its brother and dropped to the ground .
Tianming executed the Ninesilver Astral Art—Brilliant Stars . It increased his speed to a whole new level, bringing him before Sun Xingyi in an instant .
Ying Huo and Meow Meow were trying their best to hold Sun Xingyu back . During the fight, Meow Meow had suffered a blow, shattering its Ninefold Chaos Thunderscape . But it had also ignited the cat’s ferocity .
The Three-Thousand Starfield dazzled, turning into a stream of stars . The Invincible Sword Ki and astral ki contained in it exploded .
At that moment, Sun Xingyu was facing three opponents at the same time . Among the three, the long-distance attacks from Tianming were the most lethal . In the end, he could only bite the bullet and swing his staff at Tianming’s attacks .
