By the time the taboo weapon attack descended on him, Luo Yunyang had already travelled five kilometers away. However, no matter how quick he was, he couldn't be faster than a taboo weapon.
Plus, it wasn't just one!
The moment Luo Yunyang stopped, a rippling power dispersed from the central point of the Wind-Rain Crossing.
Its speed surpassed even the speed of sound!
Luo Yunyang knew that he simply had no way of avoiding it. He had already rushed into the surging river water, so he transferred all his attribute points to the power of the sun and moon without hesitation.
Power: 1,000 (Fire: 350, Ice: 350, Wood: 0)
Constitution: 18 (Golden Body: 2, Fire: 0, Ice: 0, Wood: 0)
The most powerful defensive technique of the Heaven-Battling Ape-Dragon Chart was called the Discordant Ice-Fire Barrier, which used ice and fire source power to create a protective barrier on the outer layer of one's body.
Ice and fire powers counteracted, so the Discordant Ice-Fire Barrier was 10 times stronger than Ice and Fire alone.
Ever since he had become a martial grandmaster, Luo Yunyang had been paying attention to this particular technique, yet he hadn't used it yet. However, it seemed like he had no choice but to use it now!
It would probably be more reliable than his Golden Body.
His golden-red fire source power and silvery-white ice source power formed a cage of gold and silver around his body. Although the cage appeared a little weak, it was actually extremely durable, as the two powers circulated around him.
Even if the Dragon Elephant's Two Venerables joined forces, they wouldn't be able to break his defense.
By the time Luo Yunyang had finished putting up his defense, that immensely destructive power had already swollen up violently.
This immense power, which could even flatten mountains, dispersed the river water that enveloped Luo Yunyang into countless water drops and scattered them in all directions.
In just a second, the river by the Wind-Rain Crossing had dried up completely.
When this destructive power came into contact with his Discordant Ice-Fire Barrier, Luo Yunyang felt a force blow him away.
However, it didn't feel as though his body was going to be thrown in the air. On the contrary, it felt as if an insane force was trying to rip him into pieces and spit him out.
Luo Yunyang exercised control over the Discordant Ice-Fire Barrier that wanted to bore into the soil. Unfortunately, due to the power of the taboo weapon, the soil dispersed in all directions, just like the river water.
He couldn't move! Luo Yunyang was afraid that he would die if he moved.
Multiple cracks had already started to appear on his Discordant Ice-Fire Barrier. Luo Yunyang was doing his best. Unfortunately, although he kept pumping source power into his barrier, no matter how much or how quick it was delivered, it still couldn't stop the cracks that were appearing on the Discordant Ice-Fire Barrier.
If he couldn't mend it fast enough, then he would turn into a corpse the moment the Discordant Ice-Fire Barrier shattered.
Luo Yunyang had no other choice. He did his best to squeeze out all his source power. All he could do was give it his all!
After linking his apertures with the sky and earth, he kept vigorously trying to absorb the power around him. However, this was just like trying to douse a burning cart with a cup of water.
A martial grandmaster's power was boundless, yet in this case, the rate that Luo Yunyang was absorbing the power around him was slower than the rate at which his source power was being consumed.
There wasn't any source power left anymore!
Luo Yunyang had determined that, although this frantic explosive power was immensely strong, its duration would be brief.
He had estimated that it would only last for a minute at the most. However, his Discordant Ice-Fire Barrier could only hold out for 10 seconds.
This meant that he had to withstand it for another 50 seconds.
If he used his attribute regulator, he could transfer all his attribute points to his Golden Body. However, Luo Yunyang believed that even if he did so, he would only have an 1% chance of surviving.
The Discordant Ice-Fire Barrier could absolutely not shatter!
As this thought flashed across his mind, his gaze became resolute. Luo Yunyang took out the two gemstones he had obtained from Zu Long's tomb without hesitation.
He reckoned that, as long as he continued to slowly absorb the power of Chi Hen's two gemstones, he would become a martial grandmaster.
However, he no longer had the time to slowly absorb it. That violent power was tearing into his barrier at a rapid speed.
"Heaven-Battling Ape-Dragon Chart, Gold-Swallowing Rock-Dissolving Move!"
Under the current circumstances, it would be difficult for him to absorb all the power within the gemstones. He was running out of time!
When the two gemstones entered his body, Luo Yunyang used the source power within his body to shatter them completely. His frigid ice and blazing fire powers were like a violent, surging tide colliding in his body.
A tearing sensation spread throughout his entire body, making him feel as though he was going to explode.
Luo Yunyang was unable to deal with this. He was currently doing his utmost to urge his source power to replenish that of the Discordant Ice-Fire Barrier.
However, the immensely powerful force persisted. The Discordant Ice-Fire Barrier surrounding Luo Yunyang's body kept fluctuating against this power that threatened to rip it apart.
Every fluctuation felt like a squeeze to Luo Yunyang. However, this squeeze helped suppress the raging ice and fire source powers within his body.
The twisted, distorted movements of his body made Luo Yunyang feel unbearable pain. All he could do was grit his teeth and endure this purgatory-like torture.
Meanwhile, a voice in his heart was telling him to give up. If he gave up and shut his eyes, all this torture would go away.
He couldn't give up!
No way! Luo Yunyang clenched his fists tightly. He still had many aspirations he wanted to fulfill. He didn't want to die, so he couldn't allow himself to get killed. His mother, who had suffered bitter hardships to bring him up, and his pure, adorable sister both still needed him.
After this public massacre, who knew how many people would hate his guts? In the past, people like Professor Qin would have provided a shelter for his relatives. However, now he could only protect his family by staying alive.
He couldn't die, he just couldn't die!
Luo Yunyang made great effort to endure this immeasurable pain. As he endured it, he didn't realize that his mental state was improving frantically during his suffering.
As time passed, that majestic, immense power slowly dissipated. However, the frantic circulating power of the sun and the moon, which originated from the two gemstones in Luo Yunyang's body, intensified. The two powers formed an equilibrium in his body, which gave him an extremely uncomfortable feeling.
If this equilibrium continued, Luo Yunyang was afraid that he would suffocate. Therefore, he made a crazy decision.
His violent ice and fire source power rushed towards the Taiying and Taiyang meridians. If they didn't succeed, he would die.
The Taiying and Taiyang meridians were linked amidst a light ringing sound. A wave of dense sixth factor broke up into many smaller pieces, as though it was unable to resist this temptation, and flowed into Luo Yunyang's body.
His body, which had felt like it was being torn apart by the two powers that had entered it after he had swallowed the two crystals, now seemed at ease.
When one cultivated the Heaven-Battling Ape-Dragon Chart, it usually took them one year to reach this point. However, thanks to this extremely dangerous situation, Luo Yunyang had made a breakthrough!
The Heaven-Battling Ape-Dragon Chart was now advanced!
