The blade wasn’t fast. At least not in Luo Yunyang’s opinion. According to his estimations, he could beat that sneaky attacker and his blade by just lifting a finger.
However, a dense intuition of impending danger filled Luo Yunyang’s mind!
He unleashed a devastating first variation of the Heaven Burning Dragon Fists at his attacker without hesitation.
The moment he unleashed this blow, Luo Yunyang instantly realized what was wrong. The blade was moving too slow, and his own speed was decreasing as well.
If he unleashed the Heaven Burning Dragon Fists in the Da Alliance or the Imperial Capital of the Blue Rain Empire, an immense blazing flame capable of swallowing the skies would be created.
However, although his power and might seemed unchanged, no flames were coming out of his fists.
Instead, his palm had turned scarlet.
Boom! His fist finally collided with the blade-light. As soon as it did, Luo Yunyang was pushed back five steps.
The man who had swung his blade at Luo Yunyang looked confused and somewhat stunned by what had happened. Meanwhile, Luo Yunyang had already rushed over at him at top speed.
His fist landed hard on the man’s forehead before he could even say anything.
However, even though his punch could cut mountains and split oceans, it was still not effective. Instead of cracking that man’s skull like it should, the man was sent flying just several meters away.
As his blade fell to the ground, Luo Yunyang dashed towards it without hesitation and tried to grab it.
Meanwhile, the man also reacted and reached out for his blade. When he saw that the blade was about to return to the man’s hand, Luo Yunyang suddenly stopped in his tracks.
The blade spun and flashed across the man’s neck, beheading him.
In an instant, the man’s body had already crashed to the ground. As soon as he died, a beautiful diamond-like object flew out of his body and immediately fused into Luo Yunyang’s body.
Although he didn’t feel anything when that object fused with him, Luo Yunyang could sense the mysterious power contained in the diamond-like object.
However, he had no idea what kind of power it was.
Luo Yunyang had no time to pay attention to that solid object. His priority was figuring out what was happening to him!
Why were the Heaven Burning Dragon Fists so weak? Why was controlling a blade that exhausting on his mental strength?
Luo Yunyang looked around and noticed that he was standing on a wasteland. Apart from the cyan sand that covered the land, there were only a few strands of fine grass.
As a telekinesis user, Luo Yunyang’s first reaction was to spread out his mind power and scout out the situation around him.
However, as he extended his mind power, Luo Yunyang discovered that it could only cover one kilometer.
It seemed like there was a huge resistance within the void that made it extremely difficult for him to use his mind power.
Instinctively, Luo Yunyang quickly opened his attribute regulator.
Power: 1,113 (Fire: 998, Ice: 12, Wood: 9)
Mind: 2,100 (Fire: 29, Array Formation Intent: 1)
Constitution: 214 (Dragon Bloodline: 15, Golden Body: 13, Fire: 153, Ice: 0.568, Wood: 0.47)
True Intent: 2,134 (Indiscriminate Bloody Massacre: 49, Bloody Sun Overhead: 49, Decimation: 9.9, Ice Fire: 7.6, Yin Yang True Intent: 2)
Although there didn’t seem to be any changes, Luo Yunyang realized that his True Intent and Constitution, as well as the accompanying numbers in the brackets, had turned dull gray.
This dull gray undertone meant that these attributes were not in use.
After 15 minutes, Luo Yunyang finally found out why. The celestial body he was on was a star that had gone through certain variations. Although it was not a white dwarf, the density of the planet was still too high.
Its extremely strong gravitational field formed a resistance to most kinds of power. Therefore, the True Intent Attributes he had accumulated in the Da Alliance simply couldn’t be used there.
The Jade Ridge Star Lord had once cultivated on a similar mutated star. According to him, the only reason he had chosen this sort of place for cultivation was that places in the cosmos with extremely strong gravitational forces were closer to the origin source of the skies and earth.
This concept was akin to a wind blowing over a calm river and stirring up ripples or even creating a huge wave. On the contrary, a wind would have no effect on a frozen lake.
It was precisely because it was difficult to achieve a breakthrough there that any form of enlightenment would be much closer to the Origin Source Law.
Even obtaining a small trace of the Origin Source Law was still an amazing achievement.
Therefore, the Bloody Massacre Path had placed its disciples there for obvious reasons.
“In three months, the Bloody Massacre Path disciples will arrive. Be prepared!” A roaring sound echoed again like thunder throughout the void.
Luo Yunyang did not know how many people had reached this star, but he knew that even if there were 3,000 Bloody Massacre Path disciples coming, only 100 participants would be able to leave. This was an extremely cruel reality.
He had to survive!
After picking up the blade that had slain so many, Luo Yunyang quickly found a concealed pothole and hid within it. Right now, his priority was familiarizing himself with the environment.
His True Intent, Constitution and Mind Attribute were suppressed, so he would need to use unique means to survive on this planet with 100,000 other participants.
Using the Heaven Burning Dragon Fists had consumed too much energy. Hence, he would need to use weapons. However, the thing that would keep him alive would still be his Speed.
As Luo Yunyang thought about all this, he laid down a basic strategy. Meanwhile, there was also a strong desire in his heart to obtain the diamond-like object that would appear once a participant was killed.
Although he didn’t understand what that diamond-like object was, his senses and his memories of the Jade Ridge Star Lord told him that it was surely a precious treasure for anyone trying to reach the Star-Grade Realm.
The blade was the same one he had taken from the dead man, yet the blade technique he used had been learned through a memory of the Jade Ridge Star Lord.
This blade technique emphasized on speed and all its nine blows had an implicit concept.
Unfortunately, such concepts weren’t effective on the star that Luo Yunyang was on.
What Luo Yunyang had to do was practise this technique in order to become faster.
“Draw the blade and slash!”
“Swing the blade and slash!”
Half a month passed. Luo Yunyang, who was immersed in drawing and swinging the blade quickly, had begun to form an incomparable coordination with the surrounding environment.
Although he still couldn’t use the hidden concept behind the blade technique, he believed that his attacking speed had become much faster. Actually, what made him ecstatic was that his speed had made rapid progress.
In terms of cultivation, the effect of the attribute regulator was paramount. Although there was no hidden concept in adjusting the attribute regulator, Luo Yunyang’s Speed somehow gained experience even quicker.
Even though this experience was brief, it allowed him to achieve greater heights during his subsequent training.
“Don’t kill me! I will give you all my belongings!” Luo Yunyang heard a woman pleading. His mind power instantly enveloped a 1,000-meter radius and spotted a group of people just 300 meters away from him. A few thickset, malevolent-looking men were staring at a seemingly weak woman.
This sight made one instinctively feel the desire to protect the woman.
Luo Yunyang’s mind had already formed a clear picture. By using his mind power, he was able to see two archers hiding in the treetop canopy 1,000 meters away. At the bottom left of the mountain peak where the lady was located, a telekinesis master lay in wait, crouching down.
After pondering over this for a bit, Luo Yunyang rushed out. When he reached the woman’s side, she seemed pleasantly surprised.
The moment she was about to speak, Luo Yunyang drew his blade and slashed at her like a flash of lightning.
Although the woman had been prepared for this sort of situation, Luo Yunyang had adjusted his attribute regulator to complement his blade. Thus, the speed of his blade had reached an astonishing level. It was simply too fast!
A blade-light flashed across before her beautiful head landed on the ground. As soon as she died, the buff men who had attacked her turned pale with fright.
They had staged this act too many times. Although sometimes their act would fail, seeing their boss’s head roll around on the ground was still a first.
While they were still recovering from this horrific scene, Luo Yunyang’s blade started to swing around. In an instant, their heads were separated from their bodies. Their lifeless bodies fell to the ground like blocks of wood.
“Hey, hey, hey…”
One of the buff men wanted to say something, but nothing came out of his mouth. The two archers and the telekinesis master hiding at the foot of the mountain finally reacted.
The telekinesis master tried to raise his weapon, which was a crescent-shaped light wheel. However, before he could do so, he was beheaded by a silver crescent-like light.
The Buddha Disks Luo Yunyang had not used lately had been deployed to reap the life of the telekinesis master.
One of the archers shot out an arrow before realizing that his companion had died. He knew instantly that they had picked on the wrong target. Thus, he picked himself up and began running frantically without hesitation.
Unfortunately, he had merely run away one kilometer when he felt a person appear beside him. He immediately turned his head and saw someone’s pearly-white teeth smiling at him.
Then, there was nothing.
More than 100 glowing dots flew out of these people and flowed into Luo Yunyang’s body. Every single one of these light spots represented a life lost.
As he felt them flow into his body, Luo Yunyang knew that he had no other choice.
