Gu Yueru? Chen Xi acutely noticed that there seemed to be a slightly unusual relationship between Ling Qingwu and Gu Yueru. Competition? Or is it enmity?
Without any further delay, Chen Xi acted first and soared through space.
Ye Tang and Ling Qingwu followed closely behind him.
In the blink of an eye, their group had arrived before the first meteor on the ‘Comet Corridor.’
The meteor was suffused with a fluctuation of restrictions that caused one’s heart to palpitate. Its aura surged like an ocean, and it was filled with thick energy of the Water Saint Dao. Moreover, there were even strands of the aura of divinity faintly suffused within it.
After they arrived here, Chen Xi seemed as if he’d become a completely different person. His handsome face was covered in a concentrated and calm expression, while a myriad of mysterious talisman markings was reflected in his pair of deep black eyes.
At this moment, he seemed to emanate the aura of a Supreme Talisman Formation Grandmaster, and every move he made carried a wise, deep, composed, and meticulous bearing.
The comets that ceaselessly whistled down from the burning starry sky and the meteors that were constantly moving about had been completely ignored by him because only restrictions remained within his eyes at this moment!
Hmm? At practically the exact same moment, Ling Qingwu and Ye Tang noticed the changes in Chen Xi’s bearing. It was like a peerless Sword God had instantly transformed into a Supreme Talisman Formation Grandmaster that possessed supreme skills of deduction.
This sort of completely different bearings caused both of their confidence towards Chen Xi to raise for no rhyme or reason.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
But in next to no time, they didn’t have the time to think about all of this. Because not long after they arrived here, numerous peerlessly dazzling comets tore through the sky and carried practically apocalyptic imposing auras as they whistled down!
Every single one of these comets were enormous like a lofty divine mountain and carried imposing auras that were so terrifying that they weren’t inferior to the full forced strike of a Saint Immortal. The comets shot down towards them without end, and they aroused extreme pressure in the hearts of all.
Ling Qingwu’s actions were extremely simple. She withdrew the Heaven Destruction Seal that was suffused with dark violet divine light before fiercely smashing it towards the sky. Every time a collision occurred, she would be able to shatter a comet into powder, and she was extremely ferocious.
Compared to Ling Qingwu, Ye Tang’s method was much more skillful. He executed his might at the Blade God Realm yet didn’t collide head-on with the comets. He instead created a force of attraction that easily dealt with the comet’s force before dragging them off to the side.
This was similar in principle to the method force was manipulated in Taichi, and he didn’t face the comets head on but was able to deal with these attacks.
This was something that couldn’t be helped. Ye Tang was only a Golden Immortal in the end and not a Saint Immortal. So it was already rather difficult for him to be able to rely on his cultivation in the Blade Dao to accomplish this.
In this way, he was obviously greatly inferior when compared to Ling Qingwu. After all, one was crushing through the comets like dry weeds while the other was utilizing skill, so the effect they achieved was completely different.
However, even then, it was at the very least sufficient for them to gain a foothold on this Comet Corridor, and whether they were able to smoothly pass through this place depended entirely on Chen Xi.
The Saint Dao Laws of Water. 1,800 restrictions equivalent to the Talisman Formation Grandmaster Realm with a core that’s filled with the aura of divinity. If I want to break through it, then… The Eye of Divine Truth opened up at the center of the space between his brows, and strands of deep jet black light surged into appearance. In his heart, his supreme energy of deduction circulated, and it instantly allowed Chen Xi to see through all the profundities on this 1st meteor that lay before his eyes.
In the next moment, he casually and lightly pointed out with his finger. A strand of a terrifying sword qi shot out violently, and it directly pierced at a point on the 1st meteor, causing rumbling to reverberate through the surroundings.
In an instant, the meteor suddenly stopped moving, and the energy of restrictions that suffused it fell into silence along with this.
“Junior Brother Chen Xi, you’re really extraordinary!”
Ling Qingwu and Ye Tang were stunned, and then they spoke simultaneously while their faces couldn’t help but reveal shocked expression.
“This is only the simplest restriction. Let’s go.” Chen Xi smiled, and then the three of them stepped onto the 1st meteor at the same time.
As soon as the three of them steadied their figures on the meteor, three strands of Saint Dao Aura swiftly surged into their bodies.
In an instant, Chen Xi felt that his fusing of the Five Element Divine Crest actually faintly showed a slight sign of breaking through!
“It really is like this. Every single restriction we overcome on the Comet Corridor, we’ll be able to obtain a certain amount of Saint Dao Aura as a reward. I never expected that it would actually be true.” A wisp of happiness suffused the corners of Ling Qingwu’s mouth. Obviously, she’d experienced the benefit of that strand of Saint Dao Aura.
“Haha! That strand of Saint Dao Aura I obtained has been stored within my body. Once I advance into the Saint Immortal Realm, it’ll absolutely be extraordinary beneficial to me when I fuse my own Allheaven Divine Crests!” Ye Tang roared with laughter as well. He originally thought that since he was a Golden Immortal, he would definitely be unable to obtain any benefits. Yet never had he expected that he would actually obtain such a reward, and it was simply like an unexpected fortune.
I wonder how much Saint Dao Aura I’ll be able to obtain in the end after I pass through this entire Comet Corridor… A wisp of anticipation flashed in the space between Chen Xi’s brows.
He was originally having a headache about how to swiftly fuse the various Allheaven Divine Crests he possessed, and the fortuitous encounter before him was simply like sweet dew that descended from the heavens and caused him to be extremely delighted.
It was just Chen Xi who was filled with anticipation, Ling Qingwu and Ye Tang were very much the same.
Subsequently, Chen Xi didn’t hesitate to start investigating the mysterious restrictions that suffused the 2nd meteor.
On the other hand, Ling Qingwu and Ye Tang raised their spirits by 120% as they resisted and dealt with the comets that ceaselessly shot down from the starry sky.
This expanse of burning starry sky was gorgeous and dazzling.
Gorgeous comets ceaselessly descended from the depths of the starry sky, and they whistled as they tore through space before assaulting the corridor that seemed like a path to the heavens.
On the other hand, the three thousand meteors that formed the corridor seemed like slabs that were drifting indeterminately, yet no matter how they moved, they always formed a pathway, and it seemed to be an extremely mysterious sight.
It was a mystery why the Dao Emperor had established this region all those years ago and set up such a mysterious ‘pathway to the heavens.’
Perhaps it was merely for the sake of testing Chen Xi and the other students that wished to obtain his inheritance.
Or perhaps there was some sort of other secrets hidden within it, yet it wasn’t something that students like Chen Xi and the others could discover.
Outside the Ancient Dao Emperor Grounds.
Wang Daolu couldn’t help but ask when he saw Hua Jiankong had been keeping silent for a long time. “What’s the situation like in there? Do the six of them have a chance at obtaining the Dao Emperor’s inheritance?”
Hua Jiankong shook his head. “Nie Xingzhen and the others are too far ahead, and they’ve already arrived at the 1,301st meteor, whereas Chen Xi and the others have just stepped onto the Comet Corridor. So I’m unable to discern much for now.”
Wang Daolu was stunned. “Nie Xingzhen and the others obviously have the advantage, so how can you possibly be unable to discern much?”
Hua Jiankong said, “Gu Yueru’s master is Bu Ping that possesses attainments at the Talisman God Realm, but Chen Xi is similarly not bad and might even surpass her.”
Wang Daolu seemed to be lost in thought. “That’s true as well.”
“Could it be that there’s some sort of reason for this?” Zuoqiu Taiwu that had kept silent all this time asked abruptly.
“When the Nine Profundity Treasured Cauldron was damaged, I once asked that little girl, Gu Yueru, to come repair it. Unfortunately, she was at a loss for what to do. However, Chen Xi had just entered the academy at that time, yet he successfully repaired the Nine Profundity Treasured Cauldron in one go. Thus, we can infer the gap in their attainments in the Talisman Dao from this.” The person that answered him was a senior that had always been paying attention to the situation here, and it was exactly the Pill Reserve’s Dean, Chen Haotian.
Zuoqiu Taiwu instantly fell into silence while a wisp of complicated feelings surged from his heart. Looks like this little fellow really is as the clan said, and he’s definitely related to Oracle Mountain. Otherwise, how could he possibly possess such shocking attainments in the Talisman Dao at such a young age?
Oracle Mountain, Nuwa’s Dao Palace… If he’s able to obtain the acknowledgement of the Dao Emperor’s inheritance, then wouldn’t he… When he thought up to here, a wisp of agitation arose in Zuoqiu Taiwu’s heart for no rhyme or reason. He immediately shook his head and discarded all these distracting thoughts, and he stopped thinking about it.
At practically the exact same moment, Hua Jiankong inadvertently glanced at Zuoqiu Taiwu, yet kept silent.
On the 2nd meteor.
It’s filled with the energy of the Saint Dao of Fire. It’s densely covered with 3,600 restrictions comparable to the Talisman Formation Grandmaster Realm while three strands of the aura of divinity protect the core at the positions of heaven, earth, and mortal. If I want to break through it, then…
On the 3rd meteor.
It’s filled with the energy of the Saint Dao of Metal. It’s densely covered with 4,400 restrictions comparable to the Talisman Formation Grandmaster Realm… If I want to break…
On the 4th meteor.
It’s filled with the energy of the Saint Dao of Wood… If I want to break…
In the following period of time, their group practically advanced step by step without any difficulty under Chen Xi’s lead. They broke through restrictions on meteor after meteor, and in practically a short period of ten minutes, they’d already arrived at the 101st meteor.
To Ling Qingwu and Ye Tang, they felt as if they’d never stopped moving since the beginning. Every time they stepped foot onto a meteor, Chen Xi would have already broken through the restrictions on the next meteor, and it caused them to be shocked in their hearts.
Moreover, the further they advanced, the greater the shock in their heart was, and the gazes they shot at Chen Xi who stood before them had become strange. They were utterly unable to imagine exactly what sort of extent this fellow’s cultivation in the Talisman Dao had attained because he seemed to break through these restrictions as easily as eating or drinking water.
After all, these restrictions were set up by the primeval Dao Emperor, and there was a total of three thousand restrictions that were called the Restrictions of Three Thousand. It was utterly impossible to break through them by relying on brute force. Moreover, the further one advanced, the stronger the restrictions would be, and probably even a Supreme Grandmaster in the Talisman Dao would be unable to accomplish this so easily as Chen Xi had!
Besides feeling shocked, both of them were rather excited in their hearts.
Because during this entire process, they were able to obtain a strand of Saint Dao Aura every time they stepped foot onto a meteor. Up until now, Ling Qingwu felt that the gains she’d obtained in these ten minutes of time were comparable with ten years of painstaking cultivation!
The gains Ye Tang obtained similarly caused him to be extremely pleasantly surprised. He had an unrestrained and carefree disposition, yet he still couldn’t help but be slightly depressed when his cultivation fell behind Chen Xi and Ling Qingwu.
But now, he was very confident that when he returned from the Ancient Dao Emperor Grounds, his cultivation was bound to undergo a tremendous transformation!
On the other hand, Chen Xi had finally completely fused the Five Element Divine Crest during this period of ten minutes, and it transformed into a part of his Talisman Saint Dao that hadn’t been completely established!
Obviously, when he passed through this Comet Corridor, his gains wouldn’t be inferior to Ling Qingwu and Ye Tang at all.
