Everyone remained silent.
Leng Xinghun couldn’t help but seem to be lost in thought when he saw this, and then he said, “Looks like our luck isn’t bad. At the very least, we eliminated a disciple of Oracle Mountain.”
An expert from the Sovereign Sect said, “Eldest Senior Brother, even though we didn’t locate the whereabouts of any disciple from Oracle Mountain today, we encountered many disciples from Nuwa’s Dao Palace….”
He was interrupted by Leng Xinghun before he could finish speaking. “There’s no need to pay any attention to the disciples of Nuwa’s Dao Palace. The important matter at hand is to eliminate those nine other disciples of Oracle Mountain. Especially that Chen Xi, he absolutely can’t be allowed to enter the second round of the Dao Discussion.” His voice carried a resolute, determined, and unquestionable tone.
Even though they didn’t know the reason behind all of this, no one dared to question Leng Xinghun’s orders, and all of them could only receive their orders.
“Haha! An entire 54 people set out and spend an entire day and night yet returned empty handed in the end. Should I say that our luck is too good, or we’re too useless?” At the banks of a lake, Donghuang Yinxuan’s clothes fluttered while he laughed lightly, and his voice was warm as he spoke slowly.
The expressions of the other disciples of the Divine Institute changed and turned slightly unsightly.
“Senior Brother Donghuang, there are still three months of time. With our strengths, we’ll definitely be able to complete our objective.” One of them spoke in a low voice.
“Is three months of time very long?” Donghuang Yinxuan’s eyes seemed to be suffused with the glow of flames, and his voice was low and indifferent. “From tomorrow onward, don’t come back to see me if you’re unable to complete the objective.”
As soon as he finished speaking, he flicked his sleeve and strode away through the lake.
The expressions of those disciples from the Divine Institute turned gloomy while they felt rather depressed in their hearts. How could they be in a good mood when they’d been bluntly reprimanded by Donghuang Yinxuan?
“All of you heard Senior Brother Donghuang. Set out right now and utilize the veil of night to continue searching for the whereabout of the disciples from Oracle Mountain!” Zhu Qianyu took a deep breath before he spoke in a deep voice, and he broke the silent atmosphere in the surroundings.
Since the second night of the Dao Discussion, all the cultivators who were paying attention to the developments of the Dao Discussion had acutely noticed that a storm was coming!
On that very same night, the third generation disciple of Oracle Mountain, Yue Youling, suffered the siege of six experts from the Divine Institute, and he’d annihilated his opponents on his own!
Unfortunately, Yue Youling had suffered heavy injuries from this battle, and he’d been pinned down by another group of disciples from the Divine Institute before he could even flee, causing him to be eliminated in the end.
After this battle, numerous cultivators exploded into an uproar, and all of them sighed endlessly with pity for Yue Youling’s defeat.
They were clearly aware that based on the combat strength that Yue Youling revealed, then it would be absolutely impossible for him to be eliminated so early in the Dao Discussion if it was one on one battles.
It was even to the extent that it was very likely for him to enter the second round.
However, unfortunately, his elimination had become a reality that was impossible to change.
On the third day of the Dao Discussion.
Chen Xi who was travelling forward without end was very unlucky to once again encounter a group of five from the Sovereign Sect, and an intense battle unfolded.
This battle erupted quickly and ended quickly as well.
In the end, under the shocked gazes of everyone in the outside world, Chen Xi absolutely crushed his opponents and swiftly annihilated them!
Compared to that battle at night on the first day, the combat strength Chen Xi revealed this time seemed even more terrifying, and from the beginning until the end, he seemed to accomplish it with ease and without exerting any effort.
This caused the others to have a deeper understanding of how formidable Chen Xi was, and it was even to the extent that they were unable to determine his true limits.
It was also on this day that three female disciples of Nuwa’s Dao Palace who were travelling together had obtained an Ancient Dao Engraved Cauldron by chance. However, they encountered the attack of six disciples from the Divine Institute while they were on their way, and they suffered the misfortune of being eliminated.
Not long after this battle erupted, it was noticed by the number one expert of the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm experts of Nuwa’s Dao Palace, Kong Youran, who’d rushed over, and she attacked furiously and defeated all six of those Universe Enlightened Ancestral Gods from the Divine Institute by herself!
After this battle came to an end, Kong Youran instantly became the center of attention for everyone in the outside world.
The reason for this was that the combat strength she revealed was too shocking and dazzling, and it was utterly not inferior to the achievements in combat that Chen Xi had previously attained.
It was even to the extent that she surpassed him slightly.
After all, Chen Xi fought five by himself, whereas, Kong Youran had fought six instead!
Even though it was only a difference of a single opponent, but every single one of these opponents possessed peerless might, and they were considered geniuses amongst their peers.
Since Kong Youran was still able to annihilate her opponents while fighting six by herself, it clearly showed how formidable her combat strength was.
Of course, Chen Xi wasn’t inferior to her.
It was even to the extent that everyone felt that if Chen Xi encountered six opponents like Kong Youran, then he would definitely be able to obtain the final victory as well.
After all, during the previous battles with the disciples of the Sovereign Sect, Chen Xi seemed to crush them and won without exerting any effort. Obviously, his strength far exceeded theirs.
In short, on the third day of the Dao Discussion, three disciples from Nuwa’s Dao Palace were eliminate, six disciples from the Divine Institute were eliminated, and five disciples from the Sovereign Sect were eliminated.
This number seemed to be small, but it was horrifying when compared to the entire Dao Discussion.
Such losses were too heavy!
It was only the third day of the Dao Discussion, yet the situation had erupted to such an extremely intense state, and this was something that none of the cultivators in the outside world had expected.
On the fourth day of the Dao Discussion.
While fighting to obtain an Ancient Dao Engraved Cauldron, the disciples of the Dao Institute that everyone had almost overlooked couldn’t avoid entering into conflict with six disciples of Nuwa’s Dao Palace.
The Dao Institute had an entire 37 members of its side, and the person leading the group was the eldest disciple amongst the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm disciples of the Dao Institute, Li Lufeng. They could be said to be overwhelming in numbers.
On the other hand, there were merely six people on Nuwa’s Dao Palace’s side.
When the two were compared, the gap in their strengths was too huge. There was no suspense in this battle at all, and it concluded with the elimination of those six disciples from Nuwa’s Dao Palace.
On the other hand, the Dao Institute merely paid the price of having two of its disciples eliminated.
However, they’d obtained an Ancient Dao Engraved Cauldron instead, so their gains could be said to outweigh their losses.
After they witnessed this battle, many cultivators in the outside world cursed the members of the Dao Institute for being too shameless, and they were even worse than the members of the Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute.
The Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute merely sent out five or six members in a group, but besides Yea Chen and Yu Jiuhui, all the disciples of the Dao Institute had set out together.
They were obviously utilizing their numbers to bully others!
Huai Kong’zi and the other great figures from the Dao Institute felt slightly ashamed when they witnessed this scene.
“What great methods!” The Dao Conferral Elder of Nuwa’s Dao Palace, Yu Zhen, merely spoke three words when facing all of this, and then she went silent. But everyone was able to discern that she was the second to be completely infuriated after Wen Ting.
Huai Kong’zi opened his mouth and seemed to want to provide some sort of explanation, yet he sighed in the end and didn’t say anything.
He just glanced imperceptibly at Ying Qin who stood at the side while he’d roughly guessed something in his heart, causing him to feel both resentment and pain. His feelings were complicated to the extreme.
Even Huai Kong’zi had never expected that it wasn’t just the disciples of the Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute that were able to converge together and set out together, even the disciples of their Dao Institute were able to as well, so something was clearly off!
The fifth day of the Dao Discussion.
The sixth day of the Dao Discussion.
The seventh day.
The eighth day.
After the Dao Discussion had been carried out for an entire month, these extremely intense battles that had been carried out successively for many days had gradually started to calm down.
The reason was extremely simple, no matter which power it was, numerous disciples from their sides had been eliminated during this month of time, and they could be said to have suffered heavy losses.
In this period of a month, Oracle Mountain had lost seven disciples, and merely Chen Xi, Gu Yan, and Tu Meng remained.
Yes, even Hua Yan who was ranked at the 2nd amongst the third generation disciples of Oracle Mountain and an expert who’d attained the 2nd level of the Sword Emperor Realm had the misfortune of being eliminated as well.
He’d suffered two encirclements in a single day. One group was from the Sovereign Sect, and he’d defeated three of them while two fled.
The other group was from the Divine Institute, and he’d defeated five of them, but he’d lost at the hands of the Third Powerseal Disciple, Gongsun Mu, in the end.
This battle had shocked the outside world at that time, and it caused countless exclaims to resound.
On Nuwa’s Dao Palace’s side, it had lost 29 disciples during this month of time, and merely 11 remained. Such severe losses had exceeded the expectations of everyone as well.
Because in a short period of a single month, Nuwa’s Dao Palace had already lost more than half of its participating disciples! Who would have dared to believe this before this occurred?
On the Sovereign Sect’s side, it had lost 26 disciples, and merely 14 remained. Comparatively speaking, its losses couldn’t be considered to be heavy. But in the opinion of the cultivators in the outside world, this was expected.
The reason was very simple, they’d been constantly targeting and besieging disciples from Oracle Mountain, and even though six disciples from Oracle Mountain had been successively eliminated by them, every single one of those disciples from Oracle Mountain possessed extraordinarily formidable combat strengths, causing the Sovereign Sect to suffer a huge amount of losses as well.
Especially Chen Xi. Merely in this period of a single month, he’d attained the brilliant accomplishment of eliminating 15 disciples of the Sovereign Sect.
On the Divine Institute’s side, it had lost 32 disciples. Amongst them, 26 were Black Officers while 6 were Powerseal Disciples, whereas, there were 12 Powerseal Disciples and 10 Black Officers amongst their remaining disciples.
Such losses seemed to be rather heavy as well. However, when compared to Nuwa’s Dao Palace, Oracle Mountain, and the Sovereign Sect, they obviously had quite an advantage.
Because their losses consisted mostly of Black Officers, and those Black Officers had always been playing the role of ‘shields’ for the Powerseal Disciples.
Only the Dao Institute had merely lost 12 disciples while 28 disciples remained, causing it to seem extremely outstanding. However, in the eyes of the outside world, they felt the most disdain towards these disciples of the Dao Institute.
There was only a single reason for this, all of them had converged together and acted together, so they had an advantage in numbers. Under such circumstances, they had an extraordinarily great advantage in any battle, and it was utterly impossible for them to suffer severe losses.
This was the rough situation in the Dao Discussion after a month of time.
Too many intense battles had occurred during this period of time while numerous shocking scenes had appeared as well, and it had caused countless shock and exclaims.
But no matter what, if one made a careful comparison, one would notice that Oracle Mountain and Nuwa’s Dao Palace were clearly disadvantaged.
The Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute were slightly better.
On the contrary, it was the Dao Institute that never interfered in any disputes that had become the biggest winner during this Dao Discussion, and it greatly exceeded the expectations of everyone.
However, when Huai Kong’zi witnessed this scene, he was unable to feel happy no matter what, and the space between his brows was filled with a wisp of gloominess instead.
