AST 1575 - Crack, Powerful Sea-Dragon Merman

Qing Shui was quite astonished when he saw the enemy’s army which had appeared. The scene was too spectacular and since they were underwater, it looked even more shocking.

Giant Sea-Dragons, malevolent Giant Sharks, and various other kinds of organisms with different appearances. There were countless numbers of them. Though they were still quite far, their main body could already be seen now. It seemed that there was no need to transform into their human forms for this battle.

Those Giant Sea-Dragons were different from the Dragons Qing Shui had seen before. He didn’t know whether or not these Sea-Dragons could assume human form, but they were all quite robust-looking and had only two giant front claws.

These Sea-Dragons were blue in color for the most part and looked good, but were just a tad malevolent.

“Can these Sea-Dragons assume human form? I remember that many in the Dragon Tribe were deprived of their ability to transform into their human forms during ancient times.” Qing Shui asked curiously.

“Sea-Dragons can’t assume human form, but the controller of the Sea Dragon Palace is a Sea-Dragon Merman. They are a powerful existence similar to the Drakainas but they only have men among them.” Muyun Qingge said softly.

Those Giant Sharks were unusual existences which were also an ancient breed. They were emperors of the Giant Shark Tribes. A Giant Crowned Shark, the chiefs of these Giant Sharks possessed a golden crown-like thing on their heads.

When they stopped, four people appeared at the lead. Two of them were handsome middle-aged men and looked just like humans, wearing azure clothes. Each of their actions possessed a certain style.

The other two wore purple robes but had a crown-like thing on their heads which acted as proof for their identities. Qing Shui had already known that these four were the Sea-Dragon Mermen and the Giant Crowned Sharks controlling the Sea Dragon Palace and the Vicious Shark Palace.

The Sea Dragon Palace didn’t have just the Sea-Dragons and Sea-Dragon Mermen. Similarly, the Vicious Shark Palace also didn’t have just the Giant Crowned Sharks. The Sea Dragon Palace’s Sea Dragons and Sea-Dragon Mermen comprised the least of the numbers among their ranks. It was the same for the Giant Crowned Sharks, except they were controllers.

As Qing Shui looked at this army, his mood became restless and his blood seemed to boil. A huge massacring battle was waiting but he also wanted to communicate with their counterpart and know their intentions.

A Sea-Dragon Merman came forward and looked at Muyun Qingge and then towards Yiye Jiange and Qing Shui. Finally, his gaze returned to Muyun Qingge: “It’s great that the Grand Palace Master has returned. How about your Sea King’s Palace surrenders and pays allegiance to me?” 

The man’s voice was quite inducing and pleasant to hear. His manners were also quite mild. It’s just that many from the Sea King’s Palace frowned when those words were spoken as this was an insult towards them. Quite a few from the Sea King’s Palace had already begun to curse out.

“Stop boasting. Palace Master, let’s go kill ‘em all.”

“They still haven’t learned their lesson after so many attempts.”

“It seems like the enemy has come prepared this time!”

“If they didn’t, the outcome would’ve been the same as before.”


“You want me to surrender to the Sea Dragon Palace or to the Vicious Shark Palace?” Muyun Qingge looked towards the calm man on the opposite side.

“Haha. There’s no need for the Grand Palace Master to sow discord. You only need to surrender and it’ll be fine. Wouldn’t we become stronger if we all unite together?” One of the Giant Crowned Shark from the Vicious Shark Palace came out while laughing.

“Since it’s good if everyone unites together, why don’t your Sea Dragon and Vicious Shark Palaces rely on the Sea King’s Palace? Wouldn’t that be better?” Qing Shui said while smiling. He knew that the enemy had already accomplished their wish, and Muyun Qingge and Yiye Jiange were the most crucial. After all, Yiye Jiange was an existence on the same level as a Drakaina. They merely didn’t know that she was already his woman.

Jin Liyu was being exploited straight from the beginning and he merely didn’t know why it was so, as Jin Liyu wasn’t an idiot. Did he have a perverted mind?

Qing Shui’s words seemed casual but they were enough to make the enemy restless. Beastmen didn’t like surrendering the most and especially under this kind of circumstances. They felt that they were stronger than the Sea King’s Palace. Humans were calm and unhurried when they possessed greater strength but Beastmen were different. They enjoyed seeing the weak side submit to them.

“Who are you? What’s your relation to this matter?” The Giant Crowned Shark looked at Qing Shui with displeasure.

Qing Shui was a stranger to them. After all, he had arrived only a few days ago and there wasn’t any information present on him.

“I am her man.” Qing Shui laughed.

This simple sentence was enough to cause rage in the hearts of the two controllers of the Sea Dragon Palace and the Vicious Shark Palace. This time, they looked towards Yiye Jiange and then towards Muyun Qingge.

They sensed that Yiye Jiange’s body didn’t possess that mouth-watering aura. Originally, the co-operation between them was based on splitting the gains and these gains were Muyun Qingge and Yiye Jiange, but only Muyun Qingge remained now. The biggest benefit of attacking the Sea King’s Palace were these two women who could help them breakthrough into the next realm.

There naturally had to be benefits for a co-operation and in case a problem occurred, the alliance was also doomed to collapse. Naturally, they wouldn’t start quarreling on the scene but an obstruction towards the other party had already settled in their hearts.

Qing Shui was a man with two lifetimes so his gaze was keen. He smiled: “Otherwise, why don’t you both have a fight and we’ll cooperate with whoever wins.”

This was straightforwardly sowing dissension.

“Brat. You’ll have to die today.” A blue-robed Sea-Dragon Merman raged.

“I’ll give you half-an-hour. If you want to surrender after that length of time, I won’t give you an opportunity even if you want to cooperate.” Qing Shui shook his head and poured oil into the fire.

“Elder Brother Long, let’s get rid of this brat first. What do you say?” The Giant Crowned Shark was quite enraged. Originally, there were equal benefits and both of their sides could cooperate quite harmoniously, but it was difficult to say now about when the Sea Dragon Palace would stab them from behind.

This wasn’t a matter to joke about. If he had the chance, even he might stab the Sea Dragon Palace from behind.

“I also feel the same. Let’s kill him first. The 2nd Palace Master shall belong to whoever kills him,  OK?” The Sea-Dragon Merman said with a loud voice.

The Beastmen were like this. If someone among the humankind tried to forcibly fight over things, the public wouldn’t accept it, but it was normal among the Beastmen. Women were merely an accessory to them. All of the powerful Beastmen had many women and this was also a kind of way to embody their strength. 

Qing Shui’s complexion turned gloomy when he heard the enemy’s words. He looked towards that Sea-Dragon Merman: “I changed my mind. I won’t agree even if you lower your head. Especially you.”

Qing Shui pointed towards the Giant Crowned Shark.

“Haha. Ignorant and arrogant. Come, let me take a look at what ability you have to act so brazenly.” The Giant Crowned Shark was also enraged by Qing Shui, so he directly went over towards Qing Shui.

“Let’s go together and see who kills him first.” The Sea-Dragon Merman from before walked over.

This was a standard use of using numbers to suppress the minority but it seemed that they didn’t have this intention. They were planning to compete in seeing who made the kill first. It seemed that they thought Qing Shui would be unable to withstand a single hit and thought the real target was Yiye Jiange.

“Qing Shui, I’ll go together with you!” Yiye Jiange walked out.

“I’m enough to handle them.” Qing Shui smiled towards her, hinting her not to act.

Yiye Jiange noticed his gaze and nodded: “Be careful.”

Qing Shui looked towards Muyun Qingge. She also nodded with a smile: “Be careful. We’ll prepare for the group battle.”

Qing Shui nodded.

Qing Shui knew that the group battle had to happen. It was just that before then, these two had to be eliminated. Yet he also knew that it wouldn’t be so easy but also not too difficult. He had confidence in this estimate.

    Qing Shui’s current strength was quite big and after breaking through after being with Yiye Jiange, his strength had forged ahead again. Qing Shui took the Golden Battle Halberd out and waved his right hand.

Tidal Cloud Waves Seal!

The enemy was proficient in water-type attacks but Qing Shui could use fire-type attacks. Metal, Water, Wood, Fire, and Earth beget each other and Earth, Water, Fire, Metal, Wood inhibit each other. 

The Tidal Cloud Waves Seal seemed very powerful when used inside the sea.

Golden Sword!

Qing Shui condensed a Golden Sword and shot it towards the enemy.

Only at this moment did the Sea-Dragon Merman and the Giant Crowned Shark realized that the youngster before them was quite strong. They thought that it was no wonder that he was so confident. They were even considering that Qing Shui was also from a sea tribe as how else could he possess the ability to move so freely underwater.


The Sea-Dragon Merman dodged to one side, but a few Black Horned Snakes behind him had died because of that. That huge skill directly turned them into paste.


The Sea-Dragon Merman howled loudly as his figure enlarged in size yet his appearance stayed the same as that of a human. The only difference was that the human-shaped body was covered with thick scales and had a giant Sea-Dragon head.

This was a Sea-Dragon Merman which surpassed Sea-Dragons and possessed the power of the Dragon Tribe as well as heavenly techniques. Moreover, the Dragon Tribe were all-rounders. They could display their battle skills and their heavenly techniques power to the peak, and most importantly, had a high IQ. Of course, a Sea-Dragon couldn’t compare to a true Dragon.

The giant Sea-Dragon Merman held a pair of huge azure hammers in his hands. They were forged from 10,000 Year Old Ice Crystals.


The Sea-Dragon Merman smashed the giant hammer towards Qing Shui. The scene looked like an ant in front of a giant hammer. The seawater also didn’t obstruct the hammer’s strength. Instead, it raised its strength, which was also the benefit of being proficient with water-type attacks.

Qing Shui was also a bit troubled. He found that with his strength, he’d have much difficulty in giving a fatal wound to this Sea-Dragon Merman. Hence, he could only make some unusual moves to prevail over him.

Sea-Dragon Mermen were worthy of being the Sea Dragon Palace’s rulers, true existences that Sea-Dragons couldn’t contend against. They were one of the powerful sea tribes.


The giant hammer swung past but Qing Shui had evaded it long ago. The Golden Sword within his hand shot towards the enemy.


The Golden Sword was disintegrated, but there was a fist-sized hole on the Sea-Dragon Merman’s body though his scales on the other side weren’t fully penetrated. However, this was enough to enrage the Sea-Dragon Merman. Those two giant hammers swung out again, trying to crush Qing Shui to death between them.


The giant hammers struck against each other and the surrounding seawater flowed outwards from all sides just like a river flowing at a fast speed. Many of the surrounding tribes were accidentally injured due to this.
