Killer God’s Single Stroke!
That was the name of the Tiansha Assassin’s Killer God ultimate skill!
Everyone in the five nations would have certainly heard of this skill and knew that it was an extremely powerful skill which would undoubtedly kill it’s target.
A single stroke to vanquish a soul, a single stroke to end a life. It was a stroke which couldn’t be defended by anyone.
Although Xu Que managed to defend himself successfully against it, he also knew how powerful and terrifying the skill was!
If not for the fact that he held the Troops Secret Character at the most critical moment, Xu Que knew that he would’ve probably been slain by this old man!
However, since he wasn’t killed, it was time for him to have fun!
It wasn’t ever going to be easy to make the Act Tough King capsize his boat. Since you dared to use such an ultimate skill in an attempt to take my life, then the Act Tough King shall return it in kind and let you taste the true powers of the Killer God’s Single Stroke as well!
How was it befitting for an Act Tough King to just do exactly as he did?
The Act Tough King should do it better and with better showmanship!
The skill which he had acquired from Phaseless Faction after eliminating the entire sect would now have its use. The skill was called Phaseless Magic!
The system sounded out once and Xu Que selected the option of learning it at once!
It’s just that the skill being imitated by the Phaseless Magic spell could only deal a small fraction of its original strength. However, it takes on its exact form in terms of appearances.
Hence, Xu Que intentionally spent another 200 act tough points in order to replicate the form of this Killer God’s Single Stroke.
This should’ve been enough to satisfy anyone, for the Killer God’s Single Stroke would’ve given him another method of killing someone.
But who was Xu Que? He is an Act Tough Tyrant!
In order to act tough, he was capable of doing anything!
Without any consideration, he exchanged all the spell manuals which he had gotten from the Imperial Tombs for a huge sum of Essences.
He then spent it on the Killer God’s Single Stroke which he’d acquired from the Troops Secret Character!
With the massive amount of Essences he had, the Killer God’s Single Stroke could be upgraded to its maximum!
Along with the full Glory Killer Blade which gave it 30x added power and the Soaring Dragons Nine Transformations which strengthened him by an additional 9x, it was terrifying. Lastly, there was the fact that his God of Hell’s Compulsion ensured that his prowess were in unimaginable realm!
Under such a circumstances, should he wield the maximum level Killer God’s Single Stroke, it would be so powerful that everyone around would be horrified!
It was a shame that when he tried to act tough and shouted out that he would also use the Killer God’s Single Stroke, it didn’t achieve the desired effect.
Everyone around paused in shock before they started shaking their heads in disbelief. There were even some who laughed at him secretly behind his back.
How would you know the Killer God’s Single Stroke? Who are you trying to kid?
You can do it better than the Killer God? Fuck! Why don’t you just claim to be god himself, equal to the sun?
All of us here are cultivators and we emphasize on being truthful and trustworthy. How can you boast in such a manner?
Nobody around believed Xu Que.
“There must be some tricks up his sleeves. There had to be! He was probably trying to deceive and trick the Killer God just like how he threw out the pieces of shit outside the palace and tricked the Emperor into thinking it was smelly tofu…”
“Exactly! This kid is too despicable. I dare to swear that he will pull some sort of a strange trick in order to deceive all of us.”
“Yes, yes, yes… This kid has never been known to follow conventional means. Although he said that he would be able to execute the Killer God’s Single Stroke, he must be boasting. Or that… he would create some sort of an illusion to confuse the Killer God and strike when he’s confused.”
“We’re finished! The Killer God doesn’t know him as well as we do. Would he really believe what Xu Que had said?”
“How is that even possible? Only the Killer God knows how to execute the Killer God’s Single Stroke. I dare to bet on my head that this Xu Que wouldn’t know how to do it. Killer God also wouldn’t believe him.”
The cultivators down below all broke out in exaggerated conversations and speculations.
All of them were certain that Xu Que wouldn’t know how to use such a skill and that he was only saying something like this in order to fool the Killer God.
Even the Water Empress assumed that Xu Que was only saying this in order to distract the Killer God and use other methods to deal with him.
After all, this Killer God’s Single Stroke was a creation of the Killer God himself. He invented the skill after years of training and tweakings. Nobody else would be able to learn it or even mimic it.
There were even rumors of the Killer God attempting to hand this skill to his disciples. Yet after decades of teaching his disciples, nobody was able to master it.
Hence, nobody around felt that Xu Que was speaking the truth.
The Killer God’s eyes gleamed before he laughed out, “You know how to use my Killer God’s Single Stroke? That’s crazy. My skill can never be mastered by anyone in this world and you are no exception to that. Even if I decided to teach you, you wouldn’t be able to grasp it. Besides, did you think that after stealing my sword, I don’t have other ways of killing you?” The Killer God revealed a sinister stare as he raised his palms up, summoning a fearsome fire.
The flames in his hands elongated as they raged against each other. Several seconds later, a long sword formed out of the flames, sharpened by the fearsome fire. He pointed the fiery sword at Xu Que before charging straight at him.
The faces of the crowd changed as they exhaled deeply.
They were shocked that the Killer God had another skill to use. This was the highly elusive and secretive spell of the Tiansha Assassins -Elemental Transfiguration!
Using a large amount of core energy, the Killer God could transfigure elements and morph them into items which they needed. The Killer God thus conjured his core energy and created a fire sword!
“Come here, Xu Que!” The Water Empress shouted out, her face froze as she summoned a water spirit out to protect Xu Que.
She knows about Xu Que’s skill which enabled him to steal his opponent’s blade.
However, the Killer God had already abandoned his powerful blade and fashioned a new sword out of the elements. If he uses the Killer God’s Single Stroke once again, she wasn’t sure if Xu Que could survive.
Right at this point, the Water Empress didn’t care about anything else. She wanted to protect Xu Que and ensure that he survives before thinking about anything else. As for offending both the Fire Emperor and the Killer God, these were secondary to protecting Xu Que.
Right at this point, a series of vibration rang out as Xu Que flashed his newly acquired blade, moving with such precision as killing intent emanated out from it.
At the next moment, Xu Que vanished from view!
“Hehe… there’s no use in running! If I wanted to kill someone, he wouldn’t ever be able to escape!” The old man’s sword stabbed into thin air before he laughed out. He assumed that Xu Que had fled out of fear. He thus sent out the soul strength from his body in an attempt to locate Xu Que’s precise location.
He knew that it was rather normal for Xu Que to be able to move so quickly since even he acknowledged that Xu Que was powerful.
At that moment, the old man’s pupils constricted as fear could be seen all across his face. His heart was terrified.
This was because he had located Xu Que with his soul strength and realized that Xu Que didn’t run very far away. Instead, Xu Que was just behind him!
“How… How’s that possible?”
The old man looked extremely astonished. He didn’t have much time to think as he conjured a spell and soared higher into the sky in an attempt to flee!
All of a sudden, the sound of wind could be heard.
The crowd were surprised as a white ray of light appeared just behind the old man and moved swiftly, slashing across the old man’s throat!
That was too fast!
Nobody could see that the light was actually the reflection of light from the sword. In fact, nobody could even see a sword. Even the Water Empress only managed to catch a glimpse of light and not the actual sword itself.
Hence, everyone around froze in fear.
Because this skill, was indeed the Killer God’s Single Stroke!
This was how the Killer God had moved earlier towards Xu Que when he attempted to kill him. Their movements were identical and exactly the same. Except that… Xu Que’s stroke was faster and more powerful than the Killer God’s!
