When the grey clothed old man appeared here, the atmosphere instantly fell into an unprecedentedly deathly silent state.
It was too terrifying!
Who would have dared to imagine that five Daolords would actually appear successively in the short period of a few breaths of time?
The Daolord Realm!
A height that had long since arrived at the peak of the Divine Dao. They were terrifying existences that had started to comprehend the Grand Dao of Destiny. Since the ancient times until now, all those in the entire Ancient God Domain who were able to attain the Daolord Realm possessed extraordinary and supreme might.
Existences like these were extremely rare and few, and it was even to the extent that they could be counted with ease!
If it was at any ordinary time, then great figures at the Daolord Realm would very rarely make an appearance in the world, so most cultivators hadn’t truly laid eyes on the appearance of a Daolord since they’d started cultivating until now.
Yet now, five had appear in an instant. The shock from this was simply indescribable, and it caused everyone in the surroundings, to be shocked and fall silent like cicadas in the winter as they didn’t dare make a sound.
“Fellow Daoists, the Dao Discussion hasn’t come to an end yet. Why don’t all of you come with me to the Convergence Hall to watch the battle?” The grey clothed old man smiled as he spoke.
“That’s exactly what I intended to do.”
The other four Daolords nodded as well, and then they left with the grey haired old man. They strode through space and swiftly vanished within the Convergence Hall.
As soon as this group of people vanished, a mighty uproar immediately erupted in the surroundings, and all the people here seethed with excitement, causing clamorous noise to surge through the entire world.
“The Grand Lord of Oracle Mountain, Wu Xuechan. My god! Such a legendary figure has actually made an appearance here today!”
“The Divine Sovereign Priest of the Sovereign Sect, Xu Tuo, the Heavenly Educator of the Divine Institute, Xuan Ming, the Palace Master of the Light Palace with Nuwa’s Dao Palace, Xue Ling, and the Dao Institute’s Dao Conferral Elder, Cai Ya are here as well!”
The five extremes of the Imperial Region have respectively dispatched a great figure at the Daolord Realm. This is truly a rare occurrence. Could it be that something major is about to occur?”
“Don’t forget the objective of the Dao Discussion is to select 30 disciples to enter the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos in search of fortune. The appearance of these five Daolords is probably related to this!”
“To be able to lay eyes upon the appearance of Daolords truly makes this trip worth it!”
“Did all of you hear what the Divine Sovereign Priest Xu Tuo said earlier? He actually said that the Grand Lord Wu Xuechan was rushing to come give his life away. At that time, it terrified me to the point I thought a battle between Daolords was about to erupt.”
“Haha! That would definitely not occur. It’s probably because the Grand Lord Wu Xuechan killed the Divine Sovereign Priest Mo Lin a few years ago, and Daolord Mo Lin is Daolord Xu Tuo’s junior brother.”
“So that’s the reason.”
All sorts of sounds of discussion resounded, and all the topics of conversation were concentrated on the five Daolords from the five extremes of the Imperial Region, Wu Xuechan, Xu Tuo, Xuan Ming, Xue Ling, and Cai Ya.
All of their faces were covered in surprise, reverence, respect…. It caused the surroundings to be bustling and seething with excitement to the extreme.
After all, it was truly too rare to be able to see five extraordinary great figures of legend in a single day, and it was probably difficult to come by even in a few tens of thousands of years.
“Elder Senior Brother is here.” Chen Xi frowned instead. He was very clearly aware that after Wu Xuechan crushed Daolord Mo Lin at that time, Wu Xuechan had been ambushed by the Master of the Sovereign Sect, and if it wasn’t for his Second Martial Uncle, Di Shun’s, timely arrival, Wu Xuechan might have suffered calamity.
Now, Wu Xuechan had left Oracle Mountain by himself. Under such circumstances, if the Sovereign Sect’s Master schemed against Wu Xuechan again, then the consequences would truly be difficult to ascertain.
But in next to no time, Chen Xi shook his head and stopped thinking about it. Since his Eldest Senior Brother dared to come here alone, then he’d definitely considered this.
Within Convergence Hall.
The atmosphere here was different. No matter if it was Wen Ting, Yu Zhen, Huai Kong’zi, Lei Fu, or Chi Song’zi, when they saw these five Daolords arrive simultaneously, all of them immediately stood up to greet the Daolords and didn’t dare act impetuously at all.
“Martial Nephew, you continue presiding over the Dao Discussion. Leave the matters within the hall to me.” The grey clothed old man, Cai Ya, instructed before he asked Wu Xuechan and the others to sit down.
Huai Kong’zi received his orders and left.
On the other hand, Wen Ting, Yu Zhen, Lei Fu, and Chi Song’zi moved over and stood behind the seniors of their respective sects.
“Fellow Daoists, you came just at the right moment. There are only two rounds of battles left before the Dao Discussion comes to an end, and the list of the top four disciples has already been revealed. It’s respectively Leng Xinghun, Donghuang Yinxuan, Kong Youran, and Chen Xi.” After they took their seats, Daolord Cai Ya smiled as he spoke. “Unfortunately, not a single one of my Dao Institute’s disciples were able to ascend into the top four.” His voice carried a wisp of self-ridicule.
Just as Cai Ya had said, the four disciples in the top four just happened to be from the Sovereign Sect, Divine Institute, Nuwa’s Dao Palace, and Oracle Mountain, and only the Dao Institute didn’t have a disciple amongst them. It seemed to be a very tricky situation.
“In my opinion, this outcome fully coincides with the intentions of your Dao Institute.” Daolord Xuan Ming spoke indifferently.
Cai Ya grinned and didn’t put up any argument. After that, he suddenly said, “Fellow Daoists, I wonder which little fellow all of you think will be able to obtain the first position in the Dao Discussion?”
These words seemed to be slightly unnecessary because these four Daolords would definitely feel that the disciple from their own sect would be able to attain victory.
Cai Ya was clearly not a stupid person, but he’d still spoken these words at this moment. So, it was slightly thought provoking.
Wu Xuechan smiled but didn’t answer directly. He withdrew a jade box that was completely suffused with Chaotic Qi instead, and then he placed it on the table before him.
After that, he said, “No matter who obtains the first, this is my Oracle Mountain’s reward to that disciple.”
Cai Ya said with interest, “Does the jade box contain a Natural Spirit Treasure?”
Wu Xuechan nodded and said, “Exactly. It’s called the Infinite Skybreak Shuttle. What does Fellow Daoist Cai Ya think about this reward?”
The Infinite Skybreak Shuttle!
The eyes of all the great figures within the hall narrowed, and they seemed to have heard of this treasure.
Daolord Cai Ya clapped and exclaimed with admiration. “An outstanding treasure! According to legend, it’s a precious treasure passed down from Senior Fuxi, and it’s extraordinary. It’s more than enough to be the reward for the first in the Dao Discussion.”
As he spoke, he swept the other Daolords with his gaze and suddenly smiled as he said, “Grand Lord, are you not worried that this treasure would be obtained by the disciples of the other Fellow Daoists that are present here?”
Wu Xuechan smiled lightheartedly and said, “If they have the ability, then they can feel free to take it.”
Cai Ya smiled and said, “Looks like Grand Lord is extremely confident in the Young Junior Brother of yours.”
As he spoke, he flicked his sleeve and withdrew a jade box as well. He placed it on the table and said, “As the host of the Dao Discussion, it would be inexcusable if my Dao Institute didn’t provide a reward. According to the instruction of my Dao Institute’s Dean, regardless of who obtains the first in the Dao Discussion, this Spiritvoid Garment will belong to that person.”
The Spiritvoid Garment!
The hearts of many shook fiercely when they heard this. It was a precious treasure as well, and its miraculous effects were unfathomable while its defensive ability was peerless!
In next to no time, the gazes of many descended onto the Sovereign Sect’s Xu Tuo, the Divine Institute’s Xuan Ming, and Nuwa’s Dao Palace’s Xue Ling.
“Since all of you have such interests, then my Sovereign Sect will provide a reward for the disciple ranked at the first position in the Dao Discussion.” Xu Tuo spoke in a hoarse voice. As he spoke, he’d withdrawn a black jade box and tossed it onto the table. “Within this jade box is an ancient treasure that my Sovereign Sect’s Master found in the three dimensions, and it’s called the Yin-Yang Universe Flag. I presume all of you’ve heard of it a long time ago, so I won’t provide any further explanation.”
The Yin-Yang Universe Flag!
It wasn’t just an ancient treasure, it was a renowned Natural Spirit Treasure as well!
When they saw that Wu Xuechan, Cai Ya, and Xu Tuo had respectively produced a treasure as the reward for the disciple that attains the first, the Divine Institute’s Xuan Ming and Nuwa’s Dao Palace’s Xue Ling didn’t hesitate to withdraw a treasure in succession.
One was the Globe Halberd from the Divine Institute, and the other was the Myriad Dao Pearl from Nuwa’s Dao Palace.
Both these divine artifacts were precious treasures even amongst Natural Spirit Treasures, and they possessed extraordinary divine might.
Cai Ya couldn’t help but sigh with emotion when he saw this. “Now, even my eyes are turning slightly red with envy. I wonder exactly which little fellow would have the opportunity to obtain such generous rewards.”
It wasn’t just Cai Ya, when they stay this scene, even Wen Ting, Yu Zhen, Lei Fu, and Chi Song’zi who stood at the side couldn’t help but be shocked and unable to refrain from having a wisp of dense envy arising in their hearts.
It was five Natural Spirit Treasures!
Moreover, every single one of them were precious even amongst Natural Spirit Treasures. Yet now, they’d all become a form of reward. So, how could all these great figures at the Imperial Monarch Realm not feel envious and tempted by it?
After all, even existences at the Imperial Monarch Realm like them would absolutely not possess more than five Natural Spirit Treasures!
However, they were clearly aware that the meaning behind these rewards were not simple, and the five sects were clearly carrying out a bet.
They were betting on exactly which sect’s disciple would be able to obtain the first in the Dao Discussion!
Right at this moment, a heavy sound of the bell resounded slowly outside the hall and swept through the heavens and the earth.
In an instant, the gazes of everyone within the hall shot over.
Because the battle of the top four in the 4th level of the Dao Discussion’s second round was about to begin!
The sound of the bell drifted slowly, and the clamorous noise in the outside world was quickly suppressed to the point of vanishing.
The atmosphere became solemn and quiet along with this, and the gazes of everyone had shot towards Huai Kong’zi that stood before Convergence Hall.
“The 4th level begins now!” Huai Kong’zi had a dignified expression as he spoke in a deep voice. “There are a total of two battles in this level. The first is between the Sovereign Sect’s Leng Xinghun and Kong Youran from Nuwa’s Dao Palace.
“The second battle will be between the Divine Institute’s Donghuang Yinxuan and Oracle Mountain’s Chen Xi.
“The roster for these battles was set by my Dao Institute’s Dean. Feel free to voice out any objections you have.”
As he spoke, Huai Kong’zi’s gaze descended onto Chen Xi, Leng Xinghun, Donghuang Yinxuan, and Kong Youran who were standing on the Square of Vie.
Even though the roster hadn’t been determined by way of drawing lots this time, the arrangement was very clever and extremely reasonable. After all, it was common knowledge that the Oracle Mountain and Nuwa’s Dao Palace had a good relationship, whereas, both the Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute were the same as well.
If Leng Xinghun were to be made to fight Donghuang Yinxuan and Chen Xi was made to fight Kong Youran, then it would make the battles less interesting and less pleasurable to watch.
Moreover, such an arrangement would definitely not arouse displeasure from Chen Xi and the others. It’s even to the extent that one could say that such arrangements conformed with the intentions and expectations of everyone. There was nothing that anyone could question about.
Of course, Leng Xinghun and Chen Xi could be made to fight each other while Donghuang Yinxuan and Kong Youran fought each other. However, the difference between these options wasn’t great, so would anyone care?
“Since you have no objections, then let the next round of battles begin!” When he noticed no objection from the four of them, Huai Kong’zi didn’t hesitate to immediately announce the commencement of the 4th level.
