When Zhou Yuan entered the Fallen Abyss, he felt the surrounding space begin to ripple violently as the Genesis Qi around him turned extremely volatile.
It felt as if heaven and earth were being overturned, and it was greatly discomforting.
Fortunately, the sensation did not last for long. After several dozen breaths, Zhou Yuan felt his feet touch the ground. He immediately scanned the surroundings, and a mysterious land entered his sights.
It was a barren land covered in weeds, and there were barely any other signs of life.
Thick clouds floated in the sky, giving one an immeasurable feeling. Giant rends occasionally streaked the ground, as if an earth-shaking battle had once occurred in the mini domain.
In addition, the domain felt unstable, and pockets of space distorted from time to time.
Zhou Yuan gazed at the barren land for a while before turning around. Nearly five hundred figures appeared one after another behind him, each wearing slightly lost yet wary looks as they looked around.
This was the team Zhou Yuan led, and Yi Qiushui and a few familiar figures were at the group’s front.
Shang Xiaoling, Ling Feng, Yuan Tiegang...these were the people Zhou Yuan had personally recruited into the Wind Pavilion. They currently held the high ranking positions of deputy pavilion master, and Zhou Yuan had placed them into his team during the distribution of members.
Upon seeing Zhou Yuan’s gaze, Sheng Xiaoling and the others displayed respectful gazes. After all, Zhou Yuan’s status was now much higher than when he had recruited them.
Of course, status was not the only thing that had changed; his strength had also soared tremendously.
“Zhou Yuan, the Genesis Qi here is very berserk.” Yi Qiushui walked over, her brows furrowed in worry.
Zhou Yuan nodded. The Genesis Qi in the Fallen Abyss was extremely berserk. Hence, it took much longer to absorb than in Hunyuan Heaven.
In other words, ordinary Divine Dwelling stage experts could not recklessly use their Genesis Qi. If one took two hours to fully replenish one’s Genesis Qi in Hunyuan Heaven, one would take at least six hours in the Fallen Abyss.
This would undoubtedly hold one back in battle.
Zhou Yuan pondered for a moment. With a thought, he absorbed some Genesis Qi into his body and quickly activated the Ancestral Dragon Scripture. The faint roar of a dragon echoed in his body as his channels vibrated.
Several breaths later, the berserk Genesis Qi was refined into a wisp of pure Heavenly Serpent Qi, and it flowed into his Divine Dwelling.
Zhou Yuan raised his brow, somewhat surprised. It had not taken any longer for the Ancestral Dragon Scripture to refine Genesis Qi.
Was it because the Ancestral Dragon Scripture was too tyrannical and could ignore the sliver of berserkness within the surrounding Genesis Qi?
A trace of joy emerged in Zhou Yuan’s eyes. This was good news for him. At the very least, he had a unique advantage in the Fallen Abyss.
Zhou Yuan put this good news aside for the time being as he looked towards the five hundred figures before him. “We’ve already entered the Fallen Abyss. The nine regions tournament has finally begun.
“There may be another team that has entered this mini domain, and if we meet them, an intense battle will await us.”
The several hundred members were silent, their expressions exceptionally solemn. They clearly understood that the Tianyuan Region was currently the weakest of the nine regions.
On the bright side, the participants from the nine regions were split into numerous teams. With Zhou Yuan leading them, as long as the Tianyuan Region did not meet the main team from the other eight regions, they might be able to put up a fight against the other sub-teams.
Furthermore, who could say that they would not meet a fellow Tianyuan Region team in this mini domain?
It was not impossible. There were numerous mini domains in the Fallen Abyss, and even with several tens of thousands of people entering, they might not meet another team in every mini domain.
However, Zhou Yuan could not be so optimistic as the leader, and he needed to be prepared for everything. He looked towards Sheng Xiaoling and said, “Xiaoling, lead twenty members to search for spatial cracks. Let us know when you find any.”
Spatial cracks were the mini domains’ exits, and they were used to travel to other mini domains.
Of course, spatial cracks could also be used as an escape route if the team encountered a strong foe.
Shang Xiaoling nodded and swiftly led away twenty members.
“Ling Feng, lead eighty members to scout the area and see if any other teams have entered this mini domain.”
The latter acknowledged the order and quickly left with his group.
“As for the rest, follow me to search for places with the highest concentration of Spiritium.” Zhou Yuan looked towards the remaining three hundred members as his eyes turned sharp. “The Fallen Abyss is filled with danger. There are not only many powerful foes waiting in the dark but also numerous hidden dangers. Hence, everyone needs to follow my commands properly. I will severely punish anyone whose recklessness causes any losses to the team!”
Everyone’s hearts shivered at Zhou Yuan’s stern words, and the people respectfully responded, “Understood!”
Zhou Yuan nodded in approval and said, “Let’s go!”
He led the way, flying in the air at low altitude as three hundred figures followed him closely.
When Zhou Yuan began sweeping the mini domain with his group, several hundred figures were standing at the foot of a hill at another corner of the mini domain.
These figures were dressed in mysterious yellow robes, and powerful Genesis Qi undulations were surging around them. A single glance of their powerful auras was all one needed to tell that they were elites. They were all advanced Divine Dwelling stage experts!
What should have been an untameable group was a group of elites respectfully looking towards the top of the hill. There, a tall figure stood with his hands behind his back. He wore an indifferent expression as a heart-palpitating pressure slowly spread from his body, making the several hundred figures below feel tremendous pressure.
This figure was the king of the Divine Dwelling stage in Hunyuan Heaven, Zhao Mushen!
No one would have imagined that Zhou Yuan would meet the strongest contender in the first round.
Zhao Mushen gazed at the clouds churning in the sky as he softly mumbled to himself, “Teacher-uncle Zhao, there’s no need for you to do this...is a mere Zhou Yuan worth such effort?”
He paused as he shook his head. “Never mind, since I’m already here, I shall complete the mission from the supreme sovereign first. It’s convenient, anyways.”
His gaze turned towards the figures below as a nonchalant voice sounded, “Go, find the other team in this mini domain...and destroy them.”
Several hundred figures instantly soared into the sky, accompanied by cold killing intent.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
