Chapter 4666 Duan Ling Tian Casts Three Daos at the Same Time
Apart from the Saber Dao, Hong Dong Chuan was also an expert in the Purgatory Dao, which he had comprehended to the sixth stage. Combined with his Sword Dao, his power was naturally formidable.
Nonetheless, Duan Ling Tian showed no fear when faced with Hong Dong Chuan's saber ray. He met it directly without holding back, showing the greatest respect for his opponent.
Duan Ling Tian's dazzling sword ray shot out like a lightning bolt in the sky. It sped up before it clashed head-on with Hong Dong Chuan's saber ray.
The collision between the sword ray and the saber ray resulted in an explosion, and the shockwave raged in all directions. Hong Dong Chuan's robe fluttered vigorously as he recoiled from the explosion while Duan Ling Tian stepped back.
Apart from those at or above the seventh Dao Establishment stage, many people were forced to retreat. As for the weaker level-one and level-two Dao Establishment cultivators, they were almost knocked off their feet.
Duan Ling Tian and Hong Dong Chuan briefly exchanged a few moves again before they separated and faced each other from a distance. Duan Ling Tian's expression was calm while Hong Dong Chuan's expression was tense, and his gaze was solemn.
Many of the onlookers could not help but exclaim, "What an incredible power! So this is the strength of level-eight Dao Establishment powerhouses?"
"So powerful! Senior Hong Dong Chuan has been a renowned expert in the Surging River Divine Kingdom for many years. He's widely acknowledged as being invincible among powerhouses below the ninth Dao Establishment stage. Even the two level-eight Dao Establishment powerhouses from the royal family aren't a match for him in a one-on-one fight."
"That's right. In the Surging River Divine Kingdom, only the two level-nine Dao Establishment powerhouses from the royal family can defeat Senior Hong Dong Chuan!"
"However, even someone as strong as Senior Hong Dong Chuan can't gain the upper hand in his fight with the Distinct Province's rising star. Duan Ling Tian, the God Defying Sword, is truly formidable!"
Many of those at and below the fourth Dao Establishment stage thought that Duan Ling Tian and Hong Dong Chuan were equally matched. Not counting those who were familiar with Duan Ling Tian, only those above the fourth Dao Establishment stage could tell from the duo's brief exchange that Duan Ling Tian had a slight advantage over Hong Dong Chuan. For this reason, their expressions were solemn when they looked at Duan Ling Tian.
"Amazing!" Hong Dong Chuan said with a slightly flushed face before laughing heartily. Then, he continued to say, "Brother Ling Tian, it's been a long time since I last fought so passionately! You're very strong! I'll be using my full strength after this so don't hold back."
Following that, energy surged out of Hong Dong Chuan's body. His body seemed stronger at this moment, and his aura was so domineering that the weaker cultivators felt slightly overwhelmed.
Duan Ling Tian said with a smile, "Big Brother Hong, I look forward to that…"
Duan Ling Tian's expression was slightly solemn as sword rays flew around him gracefully.
A deafening explosion rang in the air when Hong Dong Chuan's energy burst forth and formed a giant saber. Without a moment's delay, it shot toward Duan Ling Tian, buzzing loudly.
Like a giant sword, Duan Ling Tian flew out. His aura was terrifying, sending chills down people's spines. This time, he discreetly cast the Limitless Dao. Although he had comprehended the Limitless Dao to the seventh stage, he limited its strength to the sixth stage. If he had fought with his full strength, it would have been easy for him to defeat Hong Dong Chuan.
When the two waves of energy collided, a huge part of the peak crumbled, stirring up a heavy cloud of dust and causing many beasts in the vicinity to flee.
On the contrary, the two protagonists of the day and the spectators hovering above the Towering Heaven Peak were unaffected.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The Towering Heaven Peak was enveloped in dazzling light at this moment, making it impossible for the onlookers to see what was going on. Some brave souls extended their Divine Consciousness only for their souls to be injured by the shockwave. Their faces paled immediately, and some even bled from their orifices, looking as though they were on the verge of collapse.
The storm came and went quickly. In just a blink of an eye, the blinding light disappeared, and two figures appeared before everyone's eyes. Duan Ling Tian was unscathed. On the contrary, not only was Hong Dong Chuan's robe torn in several places, but his face was pale and blood could be seen on the corners of his lips.
A hint of terror could be seen in Hong Dong Chuan's eyes, and it took him a while for him to return to his senses. He cupped his fists together at Duan Ling Tian and said, "Brother Ling Tian, I thought highly of you before this. Even then, it seems like I've underestimated you."
Hong Dong Chuan was aware that Duan Ling Tian had held back earlier. He also knew that the reason the shockwave from their fight did not injure the weaker cultivators much was thanks to Duan Ling Tian suppressing the shockwave.
In fact, Duan Ling Tian was not a saint; he could not care less about the lives and deaths of these people. However, his two wives were standing among those people so he made a move to lessen the impact of the shockwave.
During the aftermath of Hong Dong Chuan and Duan Ling Tian's first exchange, Feng Qing Yang was still capable of protecting Duan Ling Tian's two wives. However, during the final decisive blow, Duan Ling Tian was not sure if Feng Qing Yang would be able to protect them so he chose to make a move.
Meanwhile, unlike the powerful cultivators who had already guessed the outcome earlier, many weaker cultivators were shocked by the outcome.
"Senior Hong Dong Chuan lost?"
Hong Dong Chuan was a renowned expert in the Surging River Divine Kingdom, and he was acknowledged as the third strongest person in the nation. They were naturally shocked that someone from the Distinct Province, who had been unknown until recently, defeated the famous Crushing Prison Saber.
Meanwhile, Feng Qing Yang, who was standing nearby, smiled wryly as he looked at the scene. Although he had recently broken through, it seemed like there was still a long way for him to go to catch up to Duan Ling Tian.
