“Is that the legendary Excalibur? Legend has it that only the Soul of Knights can unsheathe Excalibur. Has Koehler surpassed the Divine Knight and become a Knight’s Soul?”
“My god… The Knight’s Soul…”
“This is unbelievable!”
The crowd burst into an uproar the moment Koehler pulled out Excalibur. They stood up and looked at him in reverence like a god.
Lucjan observed Koehler in silence, sensing the fluctuation of energy radiating from him.
His face was expressionless. He was not surprised at all that Koehler was an eighth-rank grandmaster.
Hearing the uproar, James murmured, “To think that that old man has crossed into the eighth rank… The Knight’s Soul… Is this what it’s called in the West?”
Upon witnessing this, Thea remained expressionless.
She smiled scornfully. “Is that all?”
In mid-air, Koehler’s aura grew stronger. Even though he possessed the Knight’s Soul, he was nearing his end. For vengeance, he had no choice but to use all of his strength. Otherwise, there would be no other opportunities in the future.
He pointed the glimmering Excalibur at Lucjan below. Materialized Sword Energy descended from the sky and swept down towards Lucjan.
“Come on, Lucjan. Any later and this battle will be over,” his voice boomed.
“Hmph!” Lucjan snickered.
Then, he waved his hand, and powerful energy was released from his sleeves which withstood the burst of Sword Energy with ease. The Sword Energy was shattered and dispersed into the surroundings.
The earth exploded around him and caused great destruction. In an instant, the ground rumbled, and Mount Olympus shook violently.
“This is a battle between superpowers. Once they get serious, even Mount Olympus could collapse.”
Many were stunned by the destruction and retreated from the battlefield for fear of being drawn into the battle.
Lucjan’s move demonstrated great power. His strength was not beneath that of Koehler.
“Good!” Koehler roared.
“As expected of the leader of the Gu Sect! I was defeated by Callan Maverick of the Gu Sect a hundred years ago. Today, I will defeat you and prove that the Knights are invincible. I possess the Knight’s Soul and Excalibur. Long live the Knights!” Koehler’s voice reverberated throughout the mountains.
Holding Excalibur in his hand, he struck.
Wearing a composed look on his face, Lucjan disappeared only to reappear in mid-air in the blink of an eye. Meanwhile, the area he was in a moment ago was struck by a golden light.
The earth shook and debris covered the sky.
“Sword!” Lucjan shouted.
From afar, a disciple of the Gu Sect threw him a sword. It was an epee two meters in length.
Holding the epee in his hand, he looked at Koehler who was charging toward him, and smiled. Then, he struck.
Excalibur and the epee clashed. Powerful forces collided, and a ripple-like wave reverberated through the mountains.
The entire region was affected by the battle. Mountains collapsed and the earth shook.
Many martial artists had retreated from Mount Olympus. Only a few who were confident in their abilities remained.
