Ten thousand miles away, in the Demon Emperor Sea.
On the seabed deep into the sea, there was a vast White Tiger Formation, and Xiang Nan's avatar continued to swim over it.
After Xiang Nan retrieved the saber light from his avatar on the Demon Emperor Continent, the avatar was not withdrawn from his body. Instead, it followed Xiang Nan all the time.
When Xiang Nan set foot on the Western Emperor Continent again, he ordered the avatar to go deep into the sea and continue swimming through the formation.
Today, two days and two nights had already passed. Above the incarnation's head, there was an enormous saber light floating. However, this saber light was once again covered by the deep ocean and was not exposed to the eyes of outsiders.
At this moment, the saber radiance had already surpassed the might of Martial Sage Level 1, but it was still growing.
The first level of the Martial Saint realm was the critical point for the Cosmos Mirror to absorb. However, with the external avatar, there was no need to follow this critical point. As long as the external avatar did not disappear, it would be able to continuously strengthen. Just when Xiang Nan wanted to use it, he would be able to let the blade light fly thousands of kilometers into his hands.
However, there was a serious drawback to doing so, and that was that Xiang Nan could not leave his avatar 50,000 kilometers away.
Because the White Tiger Formation was fixed, it could not move with Xiang Nan. Once Xiang Nan wanted to leave the 50,000-mile range of perception, the saber light that had already surpassed the first level of Martial Sage could only be disbanded by itself. It could not be stored in the storage ring, nor could it follow Xiang Nan.
This was a waste, but Xiang Nan felt that he had to give it a try and see if this new idea could be put into practice.
Above the city, Xiang Nan's body was slowly recovering.
The full-speed charge just now had caused his body to suffer serious injuries. Everyone saw a ball of flame burning on Xiang Nan's body. This flame had healed all of his injuries.
Zhang Haiyue smiled sinisterly at Yue Ying's people and said, "I've suffered a lot from his self-healing technique. Now it's time for your Yue Ying people to taste it. Otherwise, they would really think that I, Zhang Haiyue, am useless."
The person from Moon Shadow looked at Zhang Haiyue indifferently.
Zhang Haiyue said, "Do you think I don't have the ability to kill this brat? I can actually kill him many times, but he can always be revived every time. It's annoying."
"Your Moon Shadow's people are formidable, but our sect is not a vegetarian either."
A full minute later, a bright light appeared at the junction of heaven and earth in the distance. The light was getting closer and closer. It suddenly stopped a hundred meters in front of Xiang Nan and turned into Sun Dianxiong.
Sun Dianxiong's condition was very miserable. Half of his body was broken, but his aura was still as steady as before.
From this point of view, the shocking martial skill that could shrink 30 times the aura was enough to shock people.
Even Zhang Haiyue could be crushed into powder by Xiang Nan's full-speed charge.
Sun Dianxiong looked at Xiang Nan out of breath, his gaze extremely serious.
Xiang Nan said, "Do all of the Mortal Emperor's trusted subordinates know such a symbolic martial skill?"
The Northern Emperor's descendants knew how to dominate the body, while the Eastern Emperor's descendants knew how to shrink their aura.
These special martial skills were what ordinary martial artists dreamed of.
Sun Dianxiong did not say anything but remained silent.
It could be seen that his emotions fluctuated greatly, and the Dipper Qi in his body began to shrink further.
Xiang Nan nodded and said, "I knew that thirty times is not your limit. You can do more, but doing so will definitely bring you great side effects."
Sure enough, Sun Dianxiong's aura had already shrunk to 35 times. His aura, which was completely mirrored, had become even thinner and denser. Its extremely high-intensity aura had shrunk, and even caused the surrounding air to feel a sense of visual distortion.
However, what followed was Sun Dianxiong's injuries.
Thirty times, it should be the extreme multiple of his current cultivation. If he continued to strengthen, Sun Dianxiong's meridians would become unbearable, reaching an overloaded state. His meridians would begin to shine and stretch out.
"Don't continue." Xiang Nan shook his head and said, "It's meaningless. You can't beat me."
"Continuing to shrink will only cause your meridians to crack, your spiritual sea to collapse, and even destroy your cultivation."
Sun Dianxiong did not say anything. He was just silent, but he did not stop.
Yue Ying would not give up the mission given to them by the Eastern Emperor, even if it was at a heavy price.
However, Xiang Nan couldn't bear it anymore. He sighed and raised his right hand. A ball of blazing flames suddenly jumped out of his palm.
At first, the flame was only the size of a fist, but it quickly grew. In the blink of an eye, it had already reached a diameter of two to three meters, enveloping Xiang Nan.
At the core of the flame, the temperature was still frighteningly high, but the outer layer of the flame was slightly mediocre.
This was a visual effect caused by elemental invasion. The flames that Xiang Nan had condensed had never increased. They were still the size of a fist. However, the flames caused the surrounding wind elements to assimilate into fire elements, forming the "outer garment" of the core flames.
If Xiang Nan didn't stop, his core flames would continuously devour the surrounding elements, corroding and assimilating them. As long as there was enough time, the entire city would be filled with an incomparably large fireball.
Sun Dianxiong stopped.
He said, "You've always known the Dao of Fire, haven't you? Why didn't you come out at first and deliberately humiliated me instead?"
"You're wrong," Xiang Nan said seriously. "On the contrary, it's because of my respect for you that I'm willing to fight you with normal methods."
"But the nature is different now. You are already willing to risk your life to take away Zhang Haiyue. I am also willing to risk everything to keep Zhang Haiyue."
"If you don't understand Dao Luck, then this battle will end here."
Sun Dianxiong burst into laughter and said, "Kill me. I didn't complete the task given to me by the Eastern Emperor, and I didn't have the face to go back to see him."
Xiang Nan said, "I said before, when I get what I want, Zhang Haiyue can hand it over. It's not that you haven't completed the task, it's just that the delay has expired. This sin won't kill you."
The martial artists on the ground immediately whispered to each other.
Some martial artists with lower cultivation realms didn't understand the horrors of Dao Luck, so they asked the martial artists beside them.
They had never seen a Dao Luck attack, and if they did, it would be very difficult for them to survive.
However, Xiang Nan had seen it a long time ago in the Central Plains. When the Bai Clan's Heavenly Tribulation experts fought against Empyrean Firmament, they used Dao Luck.
At that time, Xiang Nan desperately escaped, but he was always threatened by layers upon layers of fire waves and air waves.
All of the martial artists engulfed by these tides were vaporized, desert, and even turned into colorless air. This was the terrifying effect brought about by Dao Luck.
"When will you hand Zhang Haiyue over to me?" Sun Dianxiong asked.
Xiang Nan said, "When the time comes, I will naturally give it to you."
Sun Dianxiong nodded, "Then I'll follow you. I can't go back until I complete my mission."
Xiang Nan shrugged, "As you please."
