The declaration of defeating Gongsun Mu with three moves had ended with his loss!
When they witnessed this scene, all the spectating cultivators were shocked speechless. After all, Gongsun Mu wasn’t a weakling. Conversely, he was the Third Powerseal Disciple of the Divine Institute, and he was a peak genius at the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm!
But it just so happened that such a supreme genius had actually been completely defeated by Chen Xi with three moves, and the intensity of the shock created by this was obvious.
“Isn’t this Chen Xi a little too strong!”
“Did all of you notice? Gongsun Mu’s soul seems to have been heavily injured, and it probably won’t be so easy to completely recuperate in the future.”
“This is what a battle is. Some mishaps can’t be avoided, and it’s fine so long as they remain alive.”
The battle between Gongsun Mu and Chen Xi had just come to an end when an expanse of clamorous noise resounded in the sky above Ten Direction City. Some were shocked, some felt pity…. Even all the great figures at the Imperial Monarch Realm expressed admiration in their hearts, and they had an even stronger feeling that Chen Xi extraordinary and had concealed his strength well.
“He won! I knew he would definitely be able to succeed!” Shentu Yanran let out a long sigh of relief, and her face radiated cheerfulness while she seemed even more gorgeous.
“This fellow is simply like a monster, and he’s even more difficult to see through now. I wonder exactly who will be able to force out his full strength during this Dao Discussion.”
Le Wuhen, Yuqiu Jing, Zhuanyu Shui, and the others were surprised, and the gazes they shot at Chen Xi carried a wisp of a sense of pride and glory from Chen Xi’s accomplishment.
On the Square of Vie, Leng Xinghun, Donghuang Yinxuan, Kong Youran, Shi Yu, Yea Chen, and the other participants had witnessed all of this, and they held thoughts of their own in their hearts. Moreover, they’d simultaneously listed Chen Xi as one of the opponents they had to be fully prepared for.
Chen Xi walked off the arena and arrived by Gu Yang and Tu Meng’s side.
He was able to sense the variety of gazes being shot at him from the surroundings, but he couldn’t be bothered to pay attention to them, and his expression hadn’t changed at all from the beginning until the end.
A few years ago, when he was in the Shentu Clan, he was already confident in his ability to crush Gongsun Mu. After that, he’d entered into closed door cultivation within the Tower of Beginnings for five years of them, and it allowed his qi refinement cultivation, cultivation in the Dao Heart, comprehension of the Dao, and even cultivation in the Sword Dao to undergo a transformation. His overall combat strength had undergone a tremendous transformation, and it couldn’t be compared to the past anymore.
Under such circumstances, dealing with Gongsun Mu was nothing difficult, so he naturally wouldn’t sigh with emotion about this battle.
“What ruthless methods!” Suddenly, a deep and loud shout resounded. Chi Song’zi had suddenly arrived before Convergence Hall with a livid expression, and his voice was like a thunderclap that surged through the heavens and the earth. Moreover, it contained monstrous rage that even a deaf person could discern.
In an instant, the clamorous noise in the surroundings had vanished, and it fell deathly silent. Even the atmosphere here had become oppressive. The gazes of everyone had shot towards the infuriated Chi Song’zi, and they were extremely shocked.
“It’s merely a spar in a Dao Discussion, yet you utilized such malicious methods to injure the soul of a disciple of my Dao Institute. Chen Xi… exactly what sort of malicious intent do you harbor?” Chi Song’zi had a thin figure, yet at this moment, his entire body surged with an extremely terrifying aura that surged through the heavens and the earth in his enraged state. When looked at from afar, he was like a dazzling sun that exuded boundless pressure onto others.
“The soul is the foundation of comprehending the Divine Dao. After it’s heavily injured, it’s extremely difficult to repair. It’s even to the extent that it might affect his future cultivation. No wonder Chi Song’zi is so furious.” Many cultivators sighed with emotion in their hearts.
“What? Your Divine Institute can’t take a defeat?” Chen Xi swiftly raise his head to meet Chi Song’zi’s gaze, and he spoke in a calm and composed manner.
“You!” Chi Song’zi became even more enraged, and he truly wished for nothing more than to slap this damnable kid to death.
However, right at this moment, Wen Ting appeared swiftly and said indifferently, “Chi Song’zi, this is the Dao Discussion. If you’re disgruntled, then you can feel free to come seek a spar with me after the Dao Discussion comes to an end.”
Chi Song’zi’s gaze was like a blade as if shot over coldly and locked onto Wen Ting, and his expression changed indeterminately.
“Fellow Daoists, please calm your anger. My Dao Institute’s Dean is paying very close attention to everything that occurs during the Dao Discussion. Please don’t delay the progress of the Dao Discussion because of this.” Huai Kong’zi spoke with a low voice.
Just these words caused Chi Song’zi’s heart to tremble. In the end, he grunted coldly before he flicked his sleeve and returned to Converge Hall in anger.
Wen Ting nodded to Chen Xi and left right after.
This minor incident passed swiftly.
Without any further delay, Huai Kong’zi immediately announced. “The second battle, the Sovereign Sect’s Leng Xinghun against Yu Xiuhui from Nuwa’s Dao Palace!”
In an instant, the attention of everyone in the surroundings had been drawn over.
Leng Xinghun was a peerless expert in the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm from the Sovereign Sect, and he’d make a name for himself a very long time ago. He’d been reputed to be ‘the best in the Imperial Region’ over 10,000 years ago.
There were rumors that said if it wasn’t for the sake of entering the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos, his cultivation could have stepped foot into the Imperial Monarch Realm a long time ago, and this clearly displayed how formidable his combat strength was.
So, Leng Xinghun was one of the figures that most cultivators paid the most attention to during this Dao Discussion.
Comparatively speaking, Yu Xiuhui from Nuwa’s Dao Palace didn’t possess an impressive reputation, but she was definitely not an ordinary figure since she could advance into the second round.
However, her opponent was a figure like Leng Xinghun after all. Thus, most spectators didn’t look favorably upon her in this battle.
But to the shock of everyone, after this battle began, Yu Xiuhui had actually erupted with a combat strength that exceeded their expectations, and she was locked in an extremely intense battle with Leng Xinghun.
This had truly exceeded the expectations of everyone, and it caused their impression of Yu Xiuhui to deepen.
Even though she’d still lost at Leng Xinghun’s hands in the end, everyone was clearly aware that experiencing this battle was sufficient for her to become renowned in the world and become well known in the entire Ancient God Domain.
This Leng Xinghun had clearly held back and hadn’t utilized his true lethal moves…. Chen Xi who watched the entire battle couldn’t help but feel a wisp of coldness in his heart. He was unable to see through Leng Xinghun’s ability.
“How formidable! Leng Xinghun really is as formidable as the rumors say!”
“In my opinion, Leng Xinghun is very likely to be able to seize the first position in the Dao Discussion!”
The end of this battle had caused boundless clamorous noise to arise, and many cultivators were filled with praise towards Leng Xinghun’s display.
The third battle, the Divine Institute’s Donghuang Yinxuan against Zhao Qingyao from True Phoenix Palace.
This was similarly a battle that all the cultivators had been looking forward to for a long time because it was the Eldest Powerseal Disciple of the Divine Institute, Donghuang Yinxuan, that would be participating in the battle!
On the other hand, his opponent, Zhao Qingyao, was extremely famous as well.
There was no need to describe the process. In short, this battle could be described in two words — straightforward and brilliant!
In merely 10 minutes of time, the victor of the battle had been decided.
Zhao Qingyao lost.
The fourth battle, Kong Youran from Nuwa’s Dao Palace against Wen Canghai from the Sovereign Sect.
This battle was ended even more quickly. Since the battle begun, Kong Youran who was peerlessly gorgeous and had a lazy bearing seemed to have transformed into a female god of war, and she fought in an swift and all-powerful manner. She didn’t give her opponent even a trace of time to catch his breath.
After less than 30 exchanges, Wen Canghai had been blasted out of the battlefield.
This battle caused the entire Ten Direction City to seethe endlessly with excitement. Kong Youran herself was a beautiful woman that possessed peerless talent, and she possessed an incomparable combat strength as well. So, the amount of attention she received was naturally slightly greater than others.
The fifth battle, Oracle Mountain’s Gu Yan against Taba Chuan from the Divine Institute.
In the end, Taba Chuan lost.
This battle fully proved that if it was a one on one battle, then Gu Yan possessed a combat strength that wasn’t inferior to Leng Xinghun, Donghuang Yinxuan, and Kong Youran at all.
The reason he’d suffered a heavy injury in the Dao Cauldron World and had almost been eliminated was entirely because his enemies had overwhelmed him with numbers.
The sixth battle, Oracle Mountain’s Tu Meng against Xue Xiao’zi from the Sovereign Sect.
This battle really surprised Chen Xi. Because based on his understanding, Tu Meng’s combat strength was sufficient to defeat his opponent.
However, the outcome was that Tu Meng had fallen into a disadvantaged position during a single move, allowing Xue Xiao’zi to seize the opportunity and defeat him in one go!
Looks like this Xue Xiao’zi is another figure that concealed his strength well. I paid too much attention to Leng Xinghun in the past and overlooked the others in the Sovereign Sect…. Chen Xi sighed in his heart but couldn’t be said to feel a sense of loss. Even though Tu Meng had lost, he’d obtained an Ancient Dao Engraved Cauldron, so it was sufficient for him to enter the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos.
“Martial Ancestral Uncle, I….” Tu Meng was depressed, ashamed, and upset.
“Don’t take it to heart.” Chen Xi consoled. “Xue Xiao’zi’s combat strength is extraordinary. It isn’t your fault.”
Sometimes, admitting the strength of one’s opponent didn’t equal to a humiliation. Because one could only deeply understand where one’s weaknesses lay by fighting a formidable opponent.
The seventh battle, the Dao Institute’s Yea Chen against Yin Wushuang from Nuwa’s Dao palace.
After the time for an incense stick to burn, Yea Chen obtained the final victory.
The most striking moment of this battle was when Yea Chen utilized the inheritance, the Blade of Eternal Night. It was a supreme ultimate technique of the Eternal Yea Clan that had been failed to be handed down for countless years, and it was utterly impossible to cultivate without an Imperial Sovereign Dao Root.
Imperial Sovereign Dao Roots were extremely difficult to obtain. They were even rarer than ninth-grade Emperor Rank Ancestral Dao Roots, and they could be said to be unique existences in the heavens and the earth. This was the fundamental reason why the Blade of Eternal Night had never been handed down successfully for a long time.
So, when they saw this ultimate technique reappear into the world in Yea Chen’s hands, everyone here fell into a state of shock.
Because this meant that Yea Chen had refined and absorbed an Imperial Sovereign Dao Root when he advanced into the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm, and he possessed the supreme potential of an Imperial Sovereign Rank Universe Enlightened Ancestral God!
Even Chen Xi’s heart shook when he witnessed this scene, and he felt slight disbelief. Because he’d never imagined that there was another Imperial Sovereign Dao Root in this world!
What’s going on? Chen Xi clearly remembered that many had said that Yea Chen refined and absorbed a ninth-grade Emperor Rank Ancestral Dao Root. Why has it suddenly become an Imperial Sovereign Dao Root?
Where did he obtain this Imperial Sovereign Dao Root?All of this was like a mystery that caused Chen Xi to be unable to avoid feeling slightly surprised and bewildered, and he finally understood that he’d underestimated Yea Chen in the past.
This fellow seemed to be carefree and unrestrained, yet he was actually the best at concealing his strength.
“So, the rumors really were true. That Imperial Sovereign Dao Root that was passed down from the last era had really been obtained by the Yea Clan.” After Yea Chen returned from the Dao Engraved Battlefield, Leng Xinghun spoke abruptly while his face revealed a trace of a ghastly expression.
