Chapter 1816 – Taba Chuan

As soon as he finished speaking.


The entire Clan Hall was suffused by a seemingly material layer of divine radiance. Mysterious talisman markings circulated within it, and it covered every inch of space here.

The signs of collapse stopped at this moment, and the hall became extremely stable.

This was an important place in the Shentu Clan, so it was naturally impossible for it to not be protected by restrictions.

At this moment, because the attack from that disciple of the Divine Institute was shockingly destructive, Shentu Qingyuan could only activate these divine restrictions in the end. Otherwise, if he allowed the battle to erupt just like that, then this Clan Hall that had stood towering for countless years would definitely be destroyed.

Such a change in the surroundings hadn’t affected the battle at all.

The disciple of the Divine Institute that held the jade ornament surged with divine light as he tore through space, and boundlessly gorgeous ripples swept out from the jade ornament and smashed down fiercely at Chen Xi.

Compared to Xiao Tianqi and that woman in a golden robe, this disciple that attacked at this moment definitely possessed a strength that was much more formidable.

However, Chen Xi still remained calm, composed, and indifferent when facing this attack.

“You overestimate your ability!” Chen Xi lightly spat out a few words, and it caused the hearts of everyone within the hall to constrict.


In the next moment, under the astounded gazes of everyone present, Chen Xi stomped space apart with a single step forward, and then he charged directly at that disciples from the Divine Institute.

His entire body glowed. He was like a scorching sun in the sky, and he was extremely blazing. He was bathed in the glow of the Grand Dao, and it enveloped his entire body, causing the jade ornament that smashed down to actually be unable to harm him at all!

Such a scene was like one where Chen Xi was invulnerable to all techniques, and it caused everyone to be shocked and filled with disbelief.


Before they could recover from their shock, Chen Xi has already stretched out his hand and blasted the golden violet colored jade ornament flying. After that, he flicked his sleeve, and merely this strike alone had forcefully crushed that disciple to the ground.


That disciple of the Divine Institute coughed up large mouthfuls of blood, and he seemed as if he’d been crushed by a divine mountain. He was powerless to struggle free, and the terrifying force from it simply caused him to be on the verge of suffocation!


He felt the bones in his chest break. The boundless sharp pain from this caused his face to twist, and he couldn’t restrain his shrill cries any longer.

Everything had occurred in an instant, and it was swift to the point others were unable to react in time.

No one was able to imagine that Chen Xi’s combat strength would actually be so terrifying, and his actions would be so overbearing and domineering. Since he defeated Xiao Tianqi and the golden robed woman, and even this disciple that he’d crushed, all of them were crushed with a single strike.

Such an all-powerful method of battle and supreme bearing of cutting through everything with ease caused him to seem as if he met no resistance. So, how could it be something that could be described with merely the words domineering and overbearing?

Indeed, the strength Chen Xi revealed now was too shocking indeed, and he seemed as if he was capable of sweeping away all obstacles.

But one had to remember that his opponents were disciples of the Divine Institute!

However, Chen Xi was still able to defeat them so easily. So, exactly how terrifying was his combat strength?

It was unimaginable!

If it was said earlier that in the eyes of everyone, Chen Xi was merely an ignorant young man that appeared out of nowhere. Then at this moment, he was like a peerless overlord in the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm, and he possessed the might of a monarch that descended to the world and a majestic and powerful imposing aura!

“How could this kid be so formidable. How could….” Shentu Xing muttered while seeming to have been driven to distraction. Earlier, he’d been constantly berating Chen Xi, and he even intended to drive Chen Xi out from the Clan Hall.

But who would have imagined that this young man who he looked down upon would actually reveal such terrifying combat strength? So, how could he be able to accept this?

“We were mistaken. I never expected that kid would actually be so extraordinary.” Shentu Mingda’s face was gloomy while his gaze flickered incessantly, and tempestuous waves were surging in his heart.

“Are you just going to watch as these fellows suffer?” Chen Xi glanced at Xiao Tianqi and the others who were letting out shrill cries while sitting on the ground, and then he swiftly turned around to look at Gongsun Mu.

Gongsun Mu’s face was emotionless and indifferent to the extreme.

He’d witnessed all of this from the beginning until the end, and he’d experienced shock at the beginning before transitioning to his current indifference. He’d already determined that their opponent this time was extraordinary.

It was even to the extent that he was sure Chen Xi’s combat strength was sufficient to be ranked in the top 100 of the Universe Enlightened Chart, and it was even to the extent that Chen Xi’s ranking might be even higher!

Besides causing Gongsun Mu to be furious, he couldn’t help but be surprised and bewildered as he was unable to figure out Chen Xi’s origins.

A young man dared to enter into conflict with the Divine Institute, and he even revealed such formidable combat strength. This matter seemed to be slightly unusual.

It was exactly because he was unable to figure out Chen Xi’s origins that he hadn’t made a move until now.

“How audacious!”

“You’re too arrogant! Could it be that you think none of us can subdue you!?”

All the disciples by Gongsun Mu’s side berated because they felt extremely furious from being provoked by Chen Xi in this way.

When had they who were disciples of the Divine Institute suffer such humiliation?

Chen Xi directly disregarded all of this. His gaze was constantly locked onto Gongsun MU. Since they’d already entered into battle, he didn’t mind allowing it to continue so that he could destroy their arrogant so as to prevent them from being conceited in the future.

At this moment, the gazes of everyone within the hall descended onto Gongsun Mu, and they seemed to want to see how he would react.

“Chen Xi, why don’t you stop just like this?” Shentu Yanran was slightly worried when she witnessed this, and she sent a voice transmission to Chen Xi. Even though she was clearly aware that Chen Xi couldn’t be compared to the past, but she was also aware that as the third Powerseal Disciple of the Divine Institute, Gongsun Mu’s combat strength was terrifying. So, if Chen Xi continued the battles and fought Gongsun Mu, then the final victor would truly be difficult to determine.

“There’s no need to worry.” Chen Xi sent a voice transmission, and he gestured at Shentu Yanran to indicate that there was no need for her to say anything further and that he knew when to stop.

“Junior Brother Taba.” Suddenly, Gongsun Mu who’d remained silent until now had spoken.

“Senior Brother,” said Taba Chuan from the side.

“Are you willing to fight for the institute?” said Gongsun Mu. Obviously, he thought highly of Taba Chuan, and he even asked about Taba Chuan’s thoughts before deciding.

The members of the Shentu Clan weren’t very surprised when they saw this. Taba Chuan was an extraordinary genius indeed, and he was similarly a Powerseal Disciple of the Divine Institute. Even though he was ranked lower than Gongsun Mu, he wasn’t interested in any other affairs of the world besides cultivation, and that was the reason why his ranking was so low.

“Alright!” Taba Chuan nodded, and then he stood up.

He wore linen clothes and had an ordinary appeared. However, he emanated a heavy and lofty aura that was terrifying, and he seemed like an immovable rock that resided at the precipice.

However, at this moment, when he stood up, his imposing aura suddenly changed. His gaze was like a bolt of lightning while the energy of the Divine Dao seethed around his body, and the extremely oppressive energy within it shot into the nine heavens.

The Divine Dao was just like that. When it was restrained, one’s heart would fuse with the Grand Dao. It was flat and uninteresting, and it was like returning to the embrace of nature. However, once the Divine Dao erupted, it would be like a divine sword that shot out from the ninth hell, and its edge would shock the heavens and the earth.

This is an expert! Chen Xi’s eyes narrowed as he realized how terrifying Taba Chuan was. Taba Chuan had a simple outward appearance, but the Divine Energy within his body surged like a campfire and seethed like the ocean. It was like a true dragon was lying dormant within him, and he was definitely a peerless figure that couldn’t be judged by outward appearance.

“Senior Shentu, I heard your Clan possesses a Devilwar Battlefield. I wonder if you can allow me to utilize it?” Suddenly Gongsun Mu shot his gaze at Shentu Qingyuan and spoke flatly.

“Of course.” Shentu Qingyuan smiled before he flicked his sleeve, and then a strand of clear radiance swiftly tore through the sky and appeared at the center of the hall.


After that, a wave of strange and obscure fluctuations arose from this strand of clear radiance. Suddenly, it emanated a myriad of strands of divine light that covered the heavens and the earth.

Everyone felt the scene before their eyes flash, and then the scene had changed abruptly. They noticed that they’d actually arrived in a boundless expanse of the starry sky.

This expanse of the starry sky had numerous stars floating in it, and they circled around to form a combat arena. It could be said to be boundlessly vast and extremely grand.

Chen Xi raised his eyes to look over, and then he noticed that this combat arena was extremely miraculous. The grand scene it revealed carried a strand of a desolate and ancient aura. It was created from Starocks and branded with numerous mysterious markings of the Dao, and it was suffused with an extremely surging and unyielding aura of slaughter.

Obviously, one absolutely didn’t have to worry about the combat arena being pierced through nor did one have to worry about the battlefield being too narrow when fighting here, and one could go all out.

This was the Devilwar Battlefield. It was refined by an ancestor of the Shentu Clan, and it was specially refined to temper the ability of disciples in combat and slaughter.

After all, once one attained the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm in one’s cultivation, attacks were capable of easily causing the heavens and the earth to collapse and all things to be transformed into powder. Not to mention a city, even a star, the sun, or the moon would be obliterated because the destructive force of Universe Enlightened Ancestral Gods was too shocking.

With the Devilwar Battlefield, the Shentu Clan’s disciples didn’t have to worry about this.

Obviously, Gongsun Mu only had a single objective behind his request to Shentu Qingyuan to activate this battlefield, and it was to allow Taba Chuan to completely reveal his combat strength and defeat Chen Xi in one go instead of being restrained by the location of the battle.


Taba Chuan didn’t speak a single word. His figure flashed before he arrived within the Devilwar Battlefield in the next moment. The battle intent within his body shot into the sky like rays of light, and it threw the heavens and the earth into disorder!

“Is this the imposing aura of a Powerseal Disciple from the Divine Institute?” The eyes of all the Imperial Monarchs from the Shentu Clan focused while they immediately noticed how formidable Taba Chuan was. They reflected on it in their hearts and realized that even if it was when they were at the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm, they would definitely be unable to possess an imposing aura that was equivalent to Taba Chuan.

Chen Xi didn’t reveal any fear when facing this. He strode forward as if he was taking a stroll through his own backyard, and he arrived within the Devilwar Battlefield to stand in confrontation with Taba Chuan from afar.

“Senior Brother Taba, please reveal the supreme might of your Divine Dao and swiftly crush that fellow!”

“Hmph! With Senior Brother Taba confronting that fellow himself, that kid is bound to be defeated!”

“Senior Brother Taba is a Powerseal Disciple of our Divine Institute, and he’s ranked at the 13th position. There are probably extremely few people in the entire Ancient God Domain that can compare to him.”

“Exactly. Don’t forget that Senior Brother Taba is an existence that’s ranked at the 39th position on the Universe Enlightened Chart!”

Those disciples of the Divine Institute were excited, and they were filled with strong confidence in Taba Chuan. In their opinions, no matter how arrogantly Chen Xi acted earlier, it was absolutely impossible for Chen Xi to be a match for Taba Chuan.

It was even to the extent that many people started to deduce exactly how many moves Taba Chuan would need to crush Chen Xi.

On the other hand, at this moment, a wisp of worry couldn’t help but arise in the heart of Shentu Yanran that was originally filled with confidence in Chen Xi.

Taba Chuan is a Powerseal Disciple of the Divine Institute, and he possesses a cultivation at the peak of the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm. Moreover, his combat strength is extremely terrifying as well.

Will Chen Xi be… all right when facing such an opponent?
