When the countless Genesis Qi stars in the void behind Zhao Mushen began to show signs of fusing, a stunned look crossed everybody’s faces, and it was obvious that waves were set off in their hearts.
No one had thought that Zhao Mushen’s last resort was to attack the Heavenly Sun stage directly! Once he succeeded, he would be the only Heavenly Sun stage expert in the Fallen Abyss, which meant that no means could be used to bridge the gap in cultivation level.
The lowest Genesis Qi foundation of the Heavenly Sun stage was still a Heavenly Sun, which was equivalent to 100 million Genesis Qi stars!
But given Zhao Mushen’s background, if he were to break through to the Heavenly Sun stage, his Heavenly Sun's rank surely wouldn’t be ordinary. He could easily reach the level of the silver-snow Heavenly Sun, purple-gold Heavenly Sun or even the glass Heavenly Sun. He had a lot of confidence in this.
Even if Zhao Mushen had previously suffered from Zhou Yuan’s counterattacks, at this moment, even Zhou Yuan wouldn’t dare to underestimate him, the person who had dominated the Hunyuan Heaven’s Divine Dwelling stage for many years.
And once Zhao Mushen stepped into the Heavenly Sun stage, it would also decide the tournament’s outcome. At that time, no matter what other heaven-defying means Zhou Yuan possessed, it would be impossible for him to reverse the situation.
Wang Xi, Li Tongshen, Yuan Kun, and Jiu Gong, the various regions’ top heaven prides, also stared at the happenings with complex expressions. Zhao Mushen is really difficult to surpass.
On the Wanzu Region’s side, many members held their breath in anticipation, and Liu Qingshu’s cheeks flushed with pride. From Zhao Mushen’s performance, he was indeed worthy of being called the king of the Divine Dwelling stage.
“Zhou Yuan, since you have forced my senior brother this far, I admit that we have underestimated you. But unfortunately for you, there is only one first place in the nine regions tournament, no matter how outstanding you are!”
Entranced, Liu Qingshu stared at Zhao Mushen’s figure. Once Zhao Mushen successfully broke through, he would leave the Divine Dwelling stage and no doubt set off waves within Hunyuan Heaven’s Heavenly Sun List. It would undoubtedly be the start of a new legend of a king.
On the plain destroyed by the great battle, Wu Yao and Su Youwei tightly pursed their lips. Amongst Hunyuan Heaven’s Divine Dwelling stage experts, only they could catch up to Zhao Mushen and make a breakthrough to the Heavenly Sun stage. Unfortunately, one wrong move had exhausted their bodies of Genesis Qi, and it was impossible for them to break through forcefully at the moment. Moreover, they didn’t have Zhao Mushen’s ability to devour enough Alpha Spiritium directly from the stone statue’s depths.
This undoubtedly made them a step behind Zhao Mushen.
In the void above the Fallen Abyss.
A look of surprise crossed the Law Domain experts’ faces. Zhao Mushen was indeed courageous. After all, he was bound to face a lot of unpredictable changes while breaking through on the stone statue, and if something went wrong, there would be huge risks.
However, Zhao Mushen had to have been prepared long ago. The light shield around him had gathered not only his Genesis Qi but also Su Youwei’s and Wu Yao’s. Their combined strength was impossible for Zhou Yuan to destroy even if he exhausted all his strength.
His barrier was a true iron turtle shell.
Zhao Xiansun's expression slightly softened, and he said indifferently, “Grand elder Chi Jing, if your Tianyuan Region wins second place in the nine regions tournament, it’s still much better compared to the previous years when you came last. The Tianyuan Region has improved a lot, and it can already be considered a success.”
Chi Jing glared at him. “You are happy too early. Aren’t you afraid of accidents happening during Zhao Mushen’s breakthrough and that he might die on the spot?”
Zhao Xiansun chuckled, “You really underestimate Zhao Mushen’s background. His breakthrough will no doubt succeed.”
Chi Jing’s face darkened, and she didn’t want to see Zhao Xiansun’s smug, smiling face anymore. She shifted her gaze to the light mirror and saw that the Genesis Qi shield around Zhao Mushen’s body had grown brighter and that his Genesis Qi stars had begun to fuse.
As Zhao Xiansun had said, Zhao Mushen’s foundation and background were too deep. He had long possessed the qualifications to break through, but he had repeatedly delayed it till this moment.
The Wanzu Region could be said to have put in great efforts to keep the title of no. 1 of the nine regions.
Given the current situation, Zhou Yuan's only chance of turning the situation around was to prevent Zhao Mushen's breakthrough. Otherwise, once the breakthrough succeeded, any other means would be meaningless.
It would be impossible to touch the title of no. 1 of the nine regions then.
But she knew how difficult it was to destroy the Genesis Qi shield formed from the powers of Zhao Mushen, Wu Yao and Su Youwei. This was the same as asking Zhou Yuan to fight against three top heaven prides at once.
“Zhou Yuan, everything depends on you now,” Chi Jing muttered to herself.
In the void, Zhou Yuan’s face was solemn and cold, and Genesis Qi was frantically pulsing around his body. With the flick of his sleeve, he out sent a black-and-white lightning bolt. It rumbled forth like a divine dragon and pounded the light shield.
The light shield rippled violently but eventually swallowed even Zhou Yuan’s Yin Yang Lightning Rune.
Zhou Yuan hovered in the air and stopped his pointless attacks. He knew that if even a little Saint Art had little effect, any other attacks would just waste Genesis Qi.
“I must stop him from breaking through.” Zhou Yuan’s face had a cloudy expression. How could it be so easy to destroy Zhao Mushen’s Genesis Qi light barrier? “Even my Genesis Qi foundation of 99.9 million isn’t strong enough.”
Zhou Yuan's eyes flashed. Then, he gritted his teeth. “Then, I’ll give you some more power!”
He descended from the sky and slammed onto the plain, the ground cracking at his feet. He folded his hands together in a seal.
Earth Saint Rune! he thundered in his heart.
The Earth Saint Rune within his Divine Dwelling immediately erupted with rays of dazzling light.
A tremendous invisible ripple swept out from Zhou Yuan's feet.
The entire incomparably huge stone statue seemed to quiver violently. Then, Zhou Yuan’s expression changed drastically. He sensed a terrifying gush of Genesis Qi rushing up from the depths of the ground and flooding into his body. The qi was indescribably pure, and it contained vast, tremendous power.
It's the power from the remains in the statue’s depths! Zhou Yuan’s heart trembled. The power was much stronger than the power released by the remains in the seventh stone statue. It was obvious that the remains within this stone statue belonged to someone who was a Law Domain expert before death!
The torrent-like Genesis Qi raged in his body. He didn’t dare to be careless. He guided the majestic Genesis Qi into his Divine Dwellings, causing his Divine Dwellings to tremble violently as if monstrous waves were flooding them.
More than 90 million Genesis Qi stars flickered frantically, swallowing the torrent of Genesis Qi.
Zhou Yuan's skin began to crack and seep blood. It seemed his whole body was about to rupture.
It was then that the green pendant around his neck suddenly erupted with terrifying vitality. It poured into his body and gradually halted his skin’s rupturing.
It was the Life Quartz that the grand elder Mu Ni had gifted Zhou Yuan!
Blood vessels appeared within the whites of Zhou Yuan’s eyes as his face contorted fiercely. He couldn’t care too much about the blood that soaked his body, and he instead shifted his mind inward onto his Divine Dwellings and frantically absorbed the pure and vast Genesis Qi.
Zhao Mushen wanted to make a breakthrough. But Zhou Yuan wouldn’t willingly give up. Although it would take him some time to break through to the Heavenly Sun stage with his present foundation, this didn’t mean he had exhausted his abilities.
He still had other means!
And that was to further increase his Genesis Qi foundation!
And to truly break the limit of 100 million!
Zhou Yuan had a feeling that he could even crushingly defeat the combined Genesis Qi of Zhao Mushen, Wu Yao and Su Youwei once he broke through that limit!
Zhou Yuan fixed his bloodshot eyes on Zhao Mushen inside the Genesis Qi light shield in the distance, and his face twisted into a fierce and sinister expression.
“Then let’s see who will be the first one to break the limits!”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
