Paragon of Sin

Chapter 727 - 722: Soldier Of War Unsurpassable Difference

999.4…

Wei Wuyin was unable to inspect the Bloodline of Sin tattoo ’s current changes with his eyes closed, yet the infusion of Karmic Luck Value that he felt was exact and completely comprehensible. His senses were extremely sensitive to Karmic Luck and its aura to the point he could ascertain its exact value. This discovery enlightened him that his Soul, Body, and Mind was experiencing unseen changes. 

Unfortunately, he couldn ’t determine how much time was shaved off towards the deadline until the 3rd Calamity, yet he didn ’t agonize over it. He had consciously made the choice to deliver that lethal blow, furthering his understanding of Blessed while ridding himself of a potential issue down the line. After all, after thoroughly invading Jing Jiu ’s Sea of Consciousness, he didn ’t think he ’d have time to delicately erase his memories of his actions in this Battlefield.

Without that opportunity, he couldn ’t allow such a talented cultivator with great fortune to live or thrive. As for crippling him, Wei Wuyin was aware of Ascended ’s ability to utilize Time Reversion. That outsider Holy Son had survived his lethal strike due to this very ability. Those beyond Mortal Limits can interact or reverse a non-thorough death if they were willing to pay the price, let alone a minor thing such as a crippling.

As an Alchemist at the Mortal Sovereign level, he had a dozen ways to resurrect a crippled cultivation base. Fortunately, as an Alchemist, Blessed, and further discussion with Wu Yu, he learned that extensive damage to a mortal body using highly refined time energies were increasingly difficult to reverse, and after a certain extent, outright impossible. This was how Mystic Ascendants injured each other, not forcing themselves into a perpetual state of conflict and revival.

Thus, his Void Energies were perfect to prevent these Ascended being ’s Time Reversions. He had not just flooded Jing Jiu ’s flesh with draconic void force, eviscerating every organ, his Sea of Consciousness, but destroyed every ounce of his cultivation base. He had even used alchemic force to extract and refine the strange glob inside him that carried his Soul Aura, just like Long Chen. 

He was shocked to discover that the glob of light wasn ’t white, but blue in color. Furthermore, he now knew from Jing Jiu ’s memories what the so-called Seed of War was and its importance to cultivators, including how it was obtained and why it was offered. He learned everything about the Battlefield that Jing Jiu knew, and it was a lot to unpack. 

Unfortunately, he was unable to delve further into that as the world ’s frozen state was slowly coming to a resume. Alongside this restart, the violently torrential aura from above descended with tremendous might. The entire Battlefield shook just from its release, and every nearby soldier in a thousand meters looked startled by this.

An Ascended was enraged?! 

Wei Wuyin, however, was extremely calm as the outpour of might flooded the ground and swept towards him like a tsunami. To exert such immense power despite the severe restrictions on the Battlefield was proof of this particular Ascended ’s might. 

The Infinite Void Wings shook, and without a single indication, their size of fifteen meters in length explosively increased. Not only this, but Wei Wuyin ’s heartbeat intensified to the point the sounds of Draconic Roars echoed out. When the roar was unleashed, the faint spiritual image of a misty figure enshrouded him protectively in a cloud-like manifestation. 

Wei Wuyin kicked back gently, yet his movements were anything but. With that simple action, the Infinite Void Wings reached forty meters each, yet it became more and more corporeal as it grew. The fixed space shook and Wei Wuyin reached out, taking all of Jing Jiu ’s and his five soldiers ’ spatial rings in a seamless action.

Additionally, Wei Wuyin exercised Kratos, Eden, and King ’s Zenith Origin State ’s Mana Control, causing the surrounding still, lifeless mana to stir and flow alongside him, acquiescing to his will. He didn ’t stop there! 

Heart of the World, World of the Saber!

Saber Heart Intent!!

The environment was low-quality, yet Wei Wuyin didn ’t discard any slightest increase in his abilities at this crucial moment. The ambient essence and energies that littered this world with filthy and turbidity started to change, shifting until it became saber energies. With a tremble of his wings, Wei Wuyin absolutely exploded with monstrous speed that caused him to zip across the Battlefield while saber light assisted his movement.

In a mere blink of an eye, he had retreated three miles away! The support from the ambient mana, energies, and Infinite Void Wings were wickedly terrifying as they accelerated his movements to their utmost limits. Yet he hadn ’t stopped, soaring even faster as he turned his body around and shot off into the distance. 

”…! ” A grunt of shock and complete disbelief resounded that caused the eardrums of the nearby soldiers to burst, spurting blood wildly, many holding their heads in extreme head-pounding pain. They exclaimed out in terror, wanting to retreat yet those near that outpour of power clashed with it directly. The fortunate was pushed back with severe injuries, while the unfortunate was directly smashed into bits. Clearly, this figure intended to obliterate Wei Wuyin.

”… ” The figure that descended couldn ’t be seen due to being shrouded by a radiance of blue light. However, if their currently unleashed aura was any indication, their emotions were at the boiling point. The blue radiance enshrouded Jing Jiu, seemingly carrying him in its arms, deliberately unharmed by the frightening aura it emitted.

After a short moment, barely even a second, the figure had processed the truth of what happened, realizing that Jing Jiu ’s entire body was damaged by highly refined time energies, making reverting his death an absolute impossibility. While an Ascended might be beyond Mortal Limits, they still had limits. 

Wei Wuyin didn ’t even deign to look back, already reaching a ten miles of distance from that Ascended. He had thoroughly read Jing Jiu ’s memories, and was quite aware of the figure that he had offended. It wasn ’t just any ordinary Ascended, but an exceptional genius who reached the Demi-Mortal Lord Phase in a span of five hundred years!

Their talent was regarded as top-tier in a cultivation civilization that contained Alchemic Saints and Ascended Sovereigns! However, Wei Wuyin was well aware of this and still decided to kill him!

As he flew forward, passing intense battles filled with wails of pain and shouts of death, his expression remained absolutely serene. This figure would definitely not allow him to live after learning of the damage he ’d done to Jing Jiu, so he couldn ’t…

”AHHHHHHHHHH! ” An remorseful, vengeful scream resounded that caused almost every fight in hundred miles in every direction to cease for a brief moment. Not a single soldier was able to ignore such a terrifying, sad scream that seemed to carry endless sorrows, untold regrets, and utter rage. 

Their hearts simultaneously shivered. 

Wei Wuyin was the only one that hadn ’t shown the slightest change, but he was also moving the absolute fastest on the Battlefield. He turned into a streak of grey as he traversed the murky skies tainted crimson by the bloody air. 

Abruptly, Wei Wuyin felt a strange feeling as if he was being locked on. It was fortunate that Wei Wuyin ’s eyes were closed, because his pupils had shrunk considerably after this sensation enveloped him. When he read through Jing Jiu ’s memories, he learned about the restrictions Ascended beings experienced in the Battlefield.

And the terrifying fact was: there was none.

Nothing that he hadn ’t experienced already, at least. The spiritual suppression, the astral force dilution, the heightened gravitational force, and murky, turbid environment. Yet for Ascended, they could still exert their Spiritual Sense to a certain extent, and their Mystic Power was still terrifying and defying Mortal Limits.

The Battlefield had no true distinctions between Mortal and Ascended, with the forces battling coming to a mutually accepted agreement that Ascended were not to intervene into the Mortal-level Battlefield. If this was broken, these figures would be subjected to certain fines. 

That ’s right. Fines! Just a little bit of wealth subtraction for full-blown lives lost. Regardless of how high this was, it simply wasn ’t high enough. Of course, it was the other Ascended ’s job to interfere and prevent any deaths on their side, not allowing the enemy Ascended to act freely! 

He had also learned about what distinctions he had from other humans, and that was a radiant halo slightly above his head that had a unique color that determined which camp he belonged to. It was made from pure mystic qualities, so he was entirely unable to sense it without his Celestial Eyes. If he could just use his normal visual sight, he would also be able to determine this as they were fully visible. 

However, Wei Wuyin would never rely on others to save his life. Look at Jing Jiu or the Temporal Reincarnator, people and even the Heavenly Daos, were unreliable at times. Reassured by this belief, he started to veer a little, flying at a diagonal angle yet remaining his course in a straight line. 

The Ascended aura behind him was increasing in intensity, reaching closer. He could feel that the Ascended being had started to chase after him, locked fully on his aura and existence, and there was no location he could escape to. He angrily questioned where the Demi-Mortal Lord equivalent for the titans were, but only for a moment as he knew that they would certainly use this opportunity where humans were minus one to slaughter an Ascended or a few Ascended in their area.

After all, Ascended beings were only rewarded if they killed other Ascended beings. Even if they slaughtered billions of mortals here, they would receive nothing from the War Spirit, and without the War Souls granted by the War Spirit, there would be no rewards for them. Either from their own race or the War Spirit itself. 

”There ’s no reason to run; you ’re dead already, ” the Ascended beings voice was frighteningly calm and clear via a spiritual transmission. Yet he still remained calm, his Infinite Void Wings explosively surged once again, reaching eighty-one meters each, over doubling their original size. As he did, he also stopped his diagonal ascent, and directly shot upwards.

As he did, a ray of piercing mystic power washed over where he was. It almost touched his heel, his shift in direction was exceptionally timely. The fixed space beneath Wei Wuyin collapsed for a brief moment, yet was repaired almost instantly. If that attack had impacted the ground, tens of thousands of soldiers would have lost their lives indiscriminately. 

This Ascended being was not holding back! 

Wei Wuyin already felt they were a mere mile away, and the Ascended beings that saw him incoming were about to act, but after noticing the raging Demi-Mortal Lord ’s aura, they split and remained neutral. There was no need to get killed in their rage.

Wei Wuyin shot past these beings that fought ferociously above the clouds, not giving them a single sweeping glance. If he could get a Demi-Mortal Lord to take action and halt this enraged existence, that would be beneficial, yet when he sensed an aura similar to his, up to three, and they gave him a wide berth, his thoughts darkened yet his expression remained calm. The enlarged figure that looked on was quite frustrating, however.

In the end, he softly sighed in his heart. He twisted himself around, halting his ascending momentum, glancing down and feeling the aura of the Ascended being blitzing towards him. They were firmly within the Ascended Battlefield, above the murky and bloody clouds.

He couldn ’t help but swiftly transmit his spiritual sense, ”This is the Battlefield, don ’t you think acting against a minor Astral Core Realm junior is going a little too far? ” 

The blue radiance halted a few hundred meters beneath him. Shockingly, the Ascended being was still holding Jing Jiu ’s body. Their figure started to dim and reveal their figure. 

Wei Wuyin ’s spiritual sense couldn ’t grasp their features very well due to their own protective spiritual shielding, but he already fully knew how this figure looked and who it was. A gorgeous, absolutely fairy-like woman of astonishingly impeccable grace. There was no flaw in her bearing, looks, or talent. 

From Jing Jiu ’s memories, she was the girl he loved the most in this world. They were of the same age, but after Jing Jiu entered the Ninth Stage of the Qi Condensation Realm, he was delayed for two hundred years cultivating a unique foundational method. Because of this, he was only six hundred years old, yet at the Star Core Phase while she had reached the Demi-Mortal Lord Phase.

There was a more convoluted story there, but Wei Wuyin didn ’t really care. As childhood friends and possible lovers, she was bound to carry boundless rage, sorrow, and grief in her heart. She was a hotpot of boiling emotions ripe to explode.

Her beautiful face was glacial. 

”I don ’t care if you ’re a junior or a god; Since he experienced death today, you will also experience the same. ” The woman stated in a matter-of-fact manner, her voice extremely cold yet perfectly serene. She didn ’t seem like one who was angered to the utmost limits imaginable, but her seething aura betrayed her true emotions. And if Wei Wuyin could see her eyes, he would realize she was looking at him with the greatest degree of hatred imaginable, as if he had taken everything from her!

”… ” Wei Wuyin wanted to spit out how unreasonable that was, but he only wryly smiled. Why did Blessed have terrifyingly talented or intelligent female companions? Did female Blessed have something similar? Or were War Blessed all  gifted with their partners?

”Fine, ” Wei Wuyin said with a defeated tone. ”Then, you leave me no choice. ” As those words were said, Wei Wuyin removed his self-imposed limits.

Ori ’s Spiritual Strength was unleashed!
