A crisp cracking sound rang out as a Gold Sword was shattered. A golden light flowed out from the sword and enveloped Yang Kai, nourishing his sword and strengthening his strength.
Another year had passed since he helped Lang Qingshan kill the first Gold Sword.
Over the past year, he had led his army to conquer the world of the swords. There were bitter and crushing battles as he swept through one legion after another. Countless Gold Swords had died under his and Lang Qingshan’s joint efforts.
At this moment, whether it was him or Lang Qingshan, both of them had cultivated to the peak of the Gold Sword and were unable to advance any further. Not only so, but there were also more than a dozen Gold Sword rank masters in his army.
He and Lang Qingshan were unable to improve any further, so he could only let his subordinates benefit.
However, he firmly controlled the situation and prevented his subordinates from becoming too powerful, lest any unforeseen changes occur. After more than a year of fighting, his army had grown to over a million.
Among this million strong army, there were no rust swords or bronze swords. The lowest grade was the Black Iron Sword, while the backbone was the Silver Sword.
One could only imagine how many swords they had destroyed in the past year or so, or else they would never have grown so much.
The reason they had mobilized so many people was for the final decisive battle!
More than half a year ago, Yang Kai had led his army to a massive stronghold, which had more than a million swords, not inferior to his current lineup of subordinates, with more than a dozen Gold Swords.
As for that stronghold, it was the only remaining stronghold in the world of Swords. As long as he could destroy it, Yang Kai would have no opponent in this world!
At that time, he and Lang Qingshan might be able to leave this world.
This was the only opportunity he had found, so he could not afford to lose it.
After a brief rest and reorganization, the army set out, a million strong and majestic army, their Sword Qi soaring into the sky, causing the winds and clouds to churn wherever it passed.
Half a month later, they finally arrived at the final stronghold. From a distance, they could see that the other side was also filled with Sword Intent and powerful auras. Among the enemy’s lineup, there were Gold Swords and Silver Swords everywhere.
Without any extra probing, Yang Kai took the lead and brought all the million swords with him as he charged forward!
Although the other party was suddenly attacked, they didn’t panic in the face of danger and quickly arranged themselves into a defensive formation.
More than two million swords had been used on the final battle of this world. Every moment, a sword would be shattered, and even a Silver Sword, in such a large battlefield, the strength of an individual was incomparably small. It was impossible to guarantee one’s own safety, and a single mistake could result in one’s sword being broken.
Only those Gold Swords could control the situation!
Yang Kai and Lang Qingshan joined forces and flew back and forth across the battlefield, specifically looking for the other party’s Gold Sword to kill. The two of them had both cultivated to the peak of the Gold Sword, so even if they were alone, the strength they could display was not something an ordinary Gold Sword could compare to, let alone two of them working together.
In the enemy’s formation, more than a dozen Gold Swords were cut down one by one, while their side also suffered significant losses, with half of their Gold Swords dead.
However, this loss was worth it.
After several days of fighting, the two million strong army had been reduced to one million, seventy percent of which belonged to Yang Kai’s army while the remaining thirty percent belonged to the enemy.
At this point, the outcome had been decided!
In the enemy’s formation, only the last Gold Sword remained to guard the center of the army. Although many of its subordinates had been killed or injured, it had remained indifferent these past few days, but Yang Kai felt an indescribable pressure from that Gold Sword.
Shua, shua, shua, shua. With Yang Kai in the lead, seven Gold Swords stood in the air, facing off against the only Gold Sword in the enemy formation.
The Gold Sword floated above a throne. On the surface of the sword, there was a dignified look on its face, as if it was a giant. Even if the world collapsed in front of it, its expression would not change.
This Gold Swrod was somewhat different from the one Yang Kai had seen before. On its hilt, there was a purple gemstone emitting a purple light.
Yang Kai stared at the purple gem and couldn’t help frowning, wondering what kind of mysteries it contained.
On the surface of the sword, he raised his eyes slightly and glanced over at Yang Kai and the others before speaking in a dignified voice, “Submit or die!”
Yang Kai turned around and shouted, “Kill!”
Chi chi chi chi…
Golden Sword Qi slashed through the air, tearing apart the world.
Countless swords rushed forward to save their master, but all the Gold Swords in the enemy’s camp had been killed. At this moment, the ones who had rushed over were at most Silver Swords, so how could they resist the Golden Sword Qi?
As soon as they made contact, the silver swords disintegrated.
Even so, the Silver Swords were not afraid of death and continued to defend against them.
The Golden Sword Qi slashed forward, leaving behind countless fragments of the Silver Sword.
Yang Kai couldn’t help being moved!
The power of the Golden Sword Qi was worn down, and when the Golden Sword Qi arrived in front of the enemy Leader, it suddenly shattered, unable to cause any damage.
In order to block these Golden Sword Qi, tens of thousands of Silver Swords were instantly shattered.
What was most bizarre was that the lights of the Silver Swords which had been shattered by Yang Kai and the others did not fly towards them.
Instead, they all rushed towards the enemy Leader.
On the hilt of his sword, the purple gem flashed slightly before it turned and slashed out!
Heaven and earth lost their color, and it was impossible to describe the power of this strike with words. What the other party slashed out was not a Golden Sword Qi, but a purple thunder strike.
With a cracking sound, it was as if a thunderclap had erupted. On the battlefield, whether it was friend or foe, regardless of rank, all of the swords trembled slightly.
Yang Kai’s expression changed as he shouted, “Qingshan, dodge!”
Saying so, he immediately dodged to the side.
As the purple thunder brushed past the sword, time seemed to slow down extremely. Yang Kai could clearly see that the part of his Gold Sword that had been struck by this lightning had suddenly dissolved, causing him to feel a great sense of horror.
One had to know that he had already cultivated to the peak of the Gold Sword, so he had thought that in this world, there would be no power capable of harming him, but who would have thought that in front of this purple thunder, his sword would be so fragile!
His and Lang Qingshan’s reactions were relatively fast and they managed to dodge in time.
But the remaining five subordinates were not so lucky.
The purple thunder brushed past Yang Kai’s sword and struck the five Gold Swords, causing them to disappear without a trace!
They were instantly evaporated!
How terrifying was the power of this single strike!
When he turned his head again, how could Yang Kai dare to look down on it? He stared fixedly at the purple gem on the other party’s sword hilt, knowing that all of this was because of this gem!
This world had its own rules, and those who killed the enemy could obtain the power of the slain to nourish and strengthen themselves, but these gems had the power to change these rules.
Just now, Yang Kai and the others had shattered tens of thousands of Silver Swords, but the power of these Silver Swords had not poured into their bodies, instead being absorbed by the enemy's Leader and transformed into this shocking attack.
At this moment, after the five Gold Swords were destroyed, the five golden rays of light once again poured into the body of the sword, and the purple gem on its hilt flashed again.
Yang Kai’s heart pounded wildly as he felt the aura of death approach him.
Before he could finish his thought, another purple thunder strike shot out like a purple snake towards him.
Unable to resist!
Yang Kai immediately dodged to the side, but to his surprise, the purple thunder strike was unable to be dodged and it chased after him. Yang Kai could only move about in mid-air, trying to escape from its pursuit.
After trying a few times, he found that he was unable to break free from the purple thunder, and an aura locked onto him like a maggot.
Gritting his teeth, Yang Kai’s figure rapidly plummeted into the depths of the ground, the tip of his Gold Sword flickering with sword light as he tore a path through the ground.
After a long time, Yang Kai finally broke out of the ground and the purple thunder behind him was finally exhausted and dissipated.
Looking around, Yang Kai saw that Lang Qingshan was no longer afraid of death and was now engaged in a fierce battle with the Gold Sword. What surprised Yang Kai was that the Gold Sword was not as powerful as he had imagined it to be. It's strength was similar to him and Lang Qingshan's, at the very most, it was at the peak of the Gold Sword.
From the fact that Lang Qingshan was evenly matched with him, this was obvious.
Its power was built on the purple gemstone, the power of the purple thunder strike!
The formation of the purple thunder strike required it to absorb a massive amount of energy. In the first strike, it had absorbed the power of tens of thousands of Silver Swords, and in the second, it had absorbed the power of five Gold Swords. If it didn’t have any power to absorb, it might not have been able to display the power of the purple thunder light.
In the blink of an eye, Yang Kai saw through everything. Without any hesitation, he leapt into the battlefield and attacked the Gold Sword with Lang Qingshan.
In the blink of an eye, a dazzling sword light flashed as the three Gold Swords clashed.
Both side were at the peak of their strength, but Yang Kai and Lang Qingshan were fighting two against one, so they naturally had an absolute advantage. In the past two years of battle, the two of them had worked together more than once to resist the enemy, so there was no need for them to communicate much to understand each other’s thoughts.
The situation was one-sided.
However, the Gold Sword's expression remained calm and unhurried, a faint trace of mockery appearing on its face.
Yang Kai didn’t know why it was still so calm and composed, but from what he had observed just now, as long as he didn’t give it a chance to absorb power, it would be impossible for it to slash out that purple thunder light. Without it, he and Lang Qingshan would definitely be able to defeat it.
Just as he was thinking this, the purple gem on the Gold Sword suddenly flashed!
