Many of the Overlord Legion members saw that stunning shot, and they were given quite a shock. They were all geniuses, but that unique shooting technique was one they would have a hard time blocking as well.
The woman had average looks and a heroic temperament. She was Yuan Xuefen, and she cultivated the power of wood. She was now a fifth-stage Dragon Ascension Realm cultivator strong enough to challenge the Dragon Phoenix List.
The bandits' morale collapsed completely at the sight of Yu Rongxin's death. They started fleeing everywhere, none of them having the courage to stay behind and die. This time, the disciples did not intend to spare the bandits—they chased and attacked them with all their might.
The sounds of battle rumbled on, explosions erupting everywhere as clouds of sand billowed up. Xiang Shaoyun and Ouyang Chuanqi mostly ignored the subsequent battles. They stood side by side as they healed themselves and observed the battle.
Xiang Shaoyun had received considerable wounds during Sima Tian's explosion. If he hadn't reacted fast enough, he would have died during the explosion. Additionally, he had fought the Sovereigns in rapid succession, exhausting himself greatly. He did not have much strength left, and if he didn't stop to heal himself, his injuries would only worsen.
As for Ouyang Chuanqi, he had also fought fiercely, and Sima Tian had also hit him, causing him some injuries. Thus, Ouyang Chuanqi also needed to stop and heal. Fortunately, he was wearing high-tier armor. Otherwise, he would have suffered an even worse injury.
"We have completed the mission with total victory," said Ouyang Chuanqi.
"Yeah. What a thrilling victory," replied Xiang Shaoyun. "You, your combat prowess is freakish. You can even fight Sovereigns. I think you are totally qualified to take first place on the Dragon Phoenix List."
"Are you praising yourself in a roundabout way, or are you insulting me? You're the one who killed all three Sovereigns!" said Ouyang Chuanqi with a helpless smile. "You are the actual freak here!"
Ouyang Chuanqi had the strength to kill a first-stage Sovereign, and he could match a second-stage Sovereign in battle. This was a difficult feat of fighting someone a realm above him. That was enough to show how terrifying he was.
However, Xiang Shaoyun was able to kill Sovereigns consecutively, and it was extremely hard for many people to believe.
Xiang Shaoyun shrugged. "I did not rely on my actual combat prowess to win."
Ouyang Chuanqi replied, "Whatever you did, so long as you can defeat enemies with it, it is a part of your combat prowess. Stop putting yourself down."
Xiang Shaoyun did not wish to continue the topic, so he spoke of something else, "By the way, you visited Zhan Wushuang before this, right? I hear they are no longer creating trouble for us. Did you scare Zhan Wushuang badly to make him do that?"
"If I'm really capable of that, I won't be coming to this god-forsaken place with you," said Ouyang Chuanqi sullenly.
Xiang Shaoyun noted Ouyang Chuanqi's expression and asked in astonishment, "Are you really not his match?"
"In the academy, Zhan Wushuang and Baili Yixiao are probably the only ones capable of fully suppressing me. As for the others, they are nothing for me," said Ouyang Chuanqi with a complicated expression.
"Are they really that strong?" Xiang Shaoyun hissed in shock.
To join the Dragon Phoenix Academy, one had to be below 30 years old. It had been three years since they had joined, and the many disciples were in their early thirties. For someone at this age, reaching Ouyang Chuanqi's level was already a remarkable accomplishment.
And yet, there were actually two other people capable of suppressing him? It was evident how scary the two were. Xiang Shaoyun felt like he might not be able to guarantee a victory against those two, even with the Nether Soul Domain.
"Zhan Wushuang's Unrivaled Fist is capable of beating all Emperors. As for the three Sovereigns you just killed, not even they can last more than 10 of his punches," said Ouyang Chuanqi solemnly. "I initially thought I could match him, but when I went looking for him, I found that I couldn't even survive five punches. And he wasn't even trying at that time."
Xiang Shaoyun swallowed. "He's truly a super freak."
He had always thought that people like Baili Yixiao, Zhan Wushuang, Yu Ziyang, and Ouyang Chuanqi should be similar in strength. Now that he had entered the third stage, although he couldn't defeat them, they would also have difficulty defeating him. But now, it seemed he had been too naive.
Zhan Wushuang had defeated Ouyang Chuanqi with fewer than five punches. It was clear the gap between the two was still rather large. From that, one could only imagine how strong Baili Yixiao was. He had, after all, occupied first place on the Dragon Phoenix List all this time.
Once, it was rumored that Baili Yixiao was unwilling to reside in 1 Dragon Villa, which was the only reason that the villa had been empty, allowing Xiang Shaoyun to move in. If Baili Yixiao wanted, that villa would definitely be his. Only now did Xiang Shaoyun finally start taking that freak seriously.
"Actually, your physique is the biggest freak of all. It's a pity you insisted on cultivating nine powers," said Ouyang Chuanqi with a sigh.
While the two chatted, the others had eliminated about 90 percent of the bandits. Only about 10 percent of the bandits were able to escape in the chaos. One could say that the Overlord Legion had obtained a victory of great significance. Not only had the victory increased their morale, but their unity had also grown.
Tang Longfei dragged his wounded body over to Xiang Shaoyun and said, "Overlord, we killed 3,150 bandits in this battle. Our mission is complete. Haha!"
Despite his injuries, Tang Longfei was still in great spirits. It was clear he was overjoyed with their victory.
"How about the casualties on our side?" Xiang Shaoyun asked with a nod.
Tang Longfei's expression dimmed as he answered, "Over 20 brothers were killed, and several hundred suffered injuries of varying degrees."
"Bring their corpses back to the academy and have the academy send them home," said Xiang Shaoyun with a sigh.
In a military campaign, deaths were unavoidable—for both commoners and geniuses. There was nothing Xiang Shaoyun could say about this. To survive in a battle, one had to be strong enough so as to increase the chances of survival.
Soon after, Xiang Shaoyun started praising those who had performed well during the battle. He also announced that they would return after cleaning up the battlefield. But right before they started their return trip, some phenomenon appeared from a distant place, attracting their attention.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
