Tang Tian, in battle mode, was not the least bit stupid.
His target from the beginning had been Xin Li. No matter how strong he was, he was definitely unable to decimate the 500 strong army. And the only way of defeating such an army was to aim for the leader.
Tang Tian slowly made his way forward. He appeared to be idly strolling, while the surrounding enemies acted like they did not see him.
Silver light appeared beneath his feet. As the smear of silver light followed his body, the speed that was it was spreading up was observable with the naked eye. The silver light flashed past, and immediately wrapped into an armor around Tang Tian’s body.
When the last part of his skin was covered by the Blue Peacock’s armor, the circling Power of the Crane which was like a paper thin layer of air around his body was compressed between the armor and Tang Tian’s skin.
Tang Tian’s body shuddered.
He felt as if he was being pulled into an endless void. Behind him rose a three meter wide blue figure, it was obviously the appearance of the Peacock.
Although the figure was vague, but the cool and arrogance of the Peacock could clearly be felt.
Was this the work of the Power of the Crane?
Tang Tian’s heart was astounded. His martial spirit feeling with the peacock was somehow different from the past. Tang Tian’s thoughts stirred, and from the silver martial spirit blaze, a silver fire thread flew out, and injected into the blue figure behind him. When the silver fire thread connected with the blue figure, a steady flow of ice cold and stern True Power transmitted from the blue figure behind him, going straight into his body.
Tang Tian’s body shuddered once again.
The ice cold Peacocks True Power merged with his Crane True Power. The sharp everchanging Crane True Power, was like being contaminated by frost, immediately became extremely cold.
Peacock’s True Power…
Tang Tian’s heart was completely shocked. He thought his use of Peacock was already extremely profound. He never once imagined that he was barely scraping the surface of utilizing Peacock.
The True Power in Tang Tian was becoming unprecedentedly abundant.
At this moment, he could profoundly sense the difference between armor and mechanical weapons.
The armor contained an extremely powerful force, as they were birthed by the constellation’s laws and naturally formed. They contained countless months of accumulated force. Armors naturally were like a gigantic treasure, and the martial artist needed to arouse the treasury to open.
Mechanical weapons were different when worn. Although it used star rocks, but the body was still powered by the True Power of the martial artist. It was like a True Power amplification weapon, resulting in an amplified release of the Martial artist’s true power.
The change in Peacock caused Tang Tian’s mind to be shaken.
Tang Tian decided to find a time to speak to Big brother Jing Hao, as his understanding of the armors and martial spirits were too shallow.
But at this moment, Blue Peacock’s transformation, was undoubtedly a help in an hour of need!
The cold Crane True Power circulated around Tang Tian’s body, caused his expression to become more calm. Like bubbles in iced water, all of a sudden, the peacock’s indifferent and ice cold look appeared on Tang Tian’s face.
Pursing his lips, he became grim and stern.
“Silver armor!” Xin Li’s pupils constricted, but the killing intent and will in his heart did not falter. It was as if Xin Li was standing at the edge of the cliff. If he retreated one more step, it would result in his death. Even if Tang Tian had another set of silver armor, even if he had any other things, this fight was unavoidable!
Tang Tian suddenly began to speed up.
His slow footsteps quietly accelerated, but his upper body stayed stiff. Tang Tian became like a silvery flow, the cat claws hanging down, like a leaf floating with the wind, the sharp claws emitted out blue lights the size of rice grains.
It appeared to be the blue from the Peacock!
Xin Li only felt an omen and dangerous feeling enveloping his heart, causing it to jump. He straightened himself and shouted out to the rest: “Kill!”
The 20 Sand riders of the Iron Guards all rushed out, aiming to kill Tang Tian.
It was like Tang Tian was still not aware of them. He was indifferent as the rays of light on his fingertips brightened up even further.
One of the Sand Riders wielding a rod spun around, whoosh, the deep whistling sound sounded out, along with an earth yellow rod ray image that swung towards Tang Tian. Another Sand Rider held long knives that looked like training blades, as fine and minute snow white blade auras wounded around Tang Tian. Another Sand Rider carrying a broad axe spun angrily, exhaling with a loud sound, brandishing out a fiery red axe beam aura, straight for Tang Tian.
Tang Tian was instantly in the middle of extreme danger.
At this moment, from deep within Tang Tian’s eyes, a needle-sized light aura lit up, like a star slowly flying out from his pupils. All the changes in the surrounding could not escape Tang Tian’s intuition. The danger was not only from those three people, but behind the two sand riders on his left, there was a sand rider behind them with a bronze bow who had released an arrow. The arrow was beaming with an ice cold aura, straight for Tang Tian. On his right side, three of the Sand Riders had concealed weapons that could be used at any moment.
The whole area had become completely locked down.
There was no loophole in this big formation they had trapped Tang Tian in.
Tang Tian suddenly sneered, but he did not know that this sneer was completely ice cold.
His figure instantly disappeared.
The moment he entered the heavy and forceful rod image, it caused the Sand Rider to become joyous. His rod technique was called [Swallowing Mountains Rod Arts], and was an offensive and heavy type technique. The moment the enemy entered the range of his rod, it was his chance!
He suddenly bellowed out. The True Power on his body rippled out, the color of the rod congealing into brown, becoming a gigantic mouth, wanting to swallow Tang Tian whole.
[Swallowing Mountains Rod Arts] killing technique, [Swallowing the Peak]!
He looked simple, but his mind was meticulous. He did not expect his one move to defeat Tang Tian. When Tang Tian displayed his terrifying power previously, it had caused him to be dumbstruck, and he knew he was not an opponent for Tang Tian.
He had planned to use his strongest move to cause some trouble for Tang Tian, and bring victory through the group as a whole. They had power in numbers, and as long as Tang Tian exposed any weakness, they would definitely win.
His allies immediately understood his plan, and all of them exposed slight joy in the teamwork.
[Swallowing the Peak] was an extremely strong move, and everyone was extremely clear. The surrounding Sand Riders prepared for their killing techniques. As long as Tang Tian hit one of them, and the momentary break of his True Power, that would be their chance to strike!
A silver blue color suddenly lit up from inside the brown rod aura.
The blue aura suddenly penetrated through the rod aura, and directly pierced into the rod sand rider’s throat.
Disbelief filled the rod sand rider’s widened eyes. He could not even block one move of Tang Tian’s?
The surrounding Sand Riders immediately roused. They could not care about the rod sand rider anymore as they all moved towards Tang Tian.
Tang Tian’s figure disappeared once again.
To be a Purple Gold Ranked card meant that this martial technique had the potential to become a Unique Martial technique, and was clearly powerful. From its name alone, this Light body technique’s specialty was that it could borrow the wind and to hide in it. It could use the wind, which was the movement of air to move, and attain an unimaginable situation.
The more complicated the terrain, the messier the fights, the more complicated the movements of air will be, and that would mean it would be extremely hard to detect and guess the wind.
Tang Tian initially thought this was a light body technique used to hide himself, but it was actually a set of martial techniques specialized in big scale and messy wars.
The countless complicated and messy streams of air in the field, all of them were Tang Tian’s aid.
Tang Tian appeared behind the bowman like a demon, and when the bowman felt it, his face changed. Without being able to react, he felt a pain coming from his back, all of his strength from his body was taken away, and he fell to the ground.
The entire place was in a mess!
No one could see Tang Tian clearly, and no one could tell what killing technique and escape technique he used. Especially that Tang Tian always maintained a distance from all of them, and while killing them, he would suddenly appear in close range.
The Blood Rush shield in Tang Tian’s left hand blocked an attack, causing his shoulder to feel the impact. It was a terrifying force!
Under the influence of Power of the Crane, the Crane Body in his body was everchanging. The unending flow of True Power was extremely rich. Tang Tian suddenly realized that he was actually not taking any breaths! In the past, whenever the Crane body circulated the True Power, he was required to inhale.
But the current Crane body that was continuously changing, caused the True Power to keep flowing into all of his limbs and meridians. It was extremely comfortable.
The Peacock’s True Power was extremely ice cold, flowing from his body, causing his gaze to become icy without a thread of warmth. His mind instead had become even more active. No matter how big the battlefield was, any minute movements were all extremely clear to him.
The unprecedented feeling of control surged out from his heart.
Borrowing the power of the attack struck onto the shield, Tang Tian slipped forward as though he was on ice. He suddenly bent his body, like there were eyes growing behind his head, and blocked a blade beam from one of the Sand Riders. The Bleeding Cat Blade Scythe in his hand quietly swept past the opponent’s waist.
A wail came out!
The sand rider supported his waist, the blood from the laceration kept flowing out, pain and fear appearing on his face.
Tang Tian did not have the mind to stop, waving the Blood Rush Shield with his left arm, an air blade flew out from the shield, directly towards a sand rider. Shocked, he raised his metal fist in a panic. Two fist aura congealed, and struck the air blade.
The air blade was gone, and the sand rider relaxed. Suddenly, his face changed, as he could not see Tang Tian.
It was too late for him to retreat, as a blue spark appeared from below him, and struck straight into his chest.
[Fire Scythe Ghost Claw]!
He felt as though he was struck by a heavy punch, his entire person flew out. His chest caved in as he stopped breathing.
All the other Sand Riders of the Iron Guards were terrified to the bones. They had never seen a person who was like a killing god. In the blink of an eye he had already killed eight people. They did not even touch Tang Tian’s clothes. His power, was too overwhelming!
Although they were trained as guards, but that did not mean that they did not fear death. Especially after seeing Tang Tian, all of them knew they had no chance of winning!
A few of the Sand Riders looked towards each other, the determination in their eyes growing stronger. They all bellowed out and rushed towards Tang Tian together.
Suddenly, several fireflies appeared, causing them to feel as though it was the night of midsummer. All of the killing intent dissipated, and became quiet.
Unique Martial Technique Killing technique, [Demon King Blazing Firefly]!
It was as though time froze at this moment.
10 Fireflies appeared beneath Tang Tian’s fingertips, drawing 16 light lines in the air, it all landed amidst the group.
Tang Tian was completely influenced by Peacock’s True Power, causing him to be extremely calm and have an icy expression. As he jumped, his cold lips suddenly muttered.
“Blossom, Demon King Blazing Firefly!”
