In an instant, Chen Xi’s hair had turned white as snow while his entire body was covered in blazing violet gold energy. He was dazzling and ethereal, and his divine might shook the world and astounded the spectators in the surroundings.
It was unimaginable that Chen Xi’s combat strength had actually undergone another transformation when he was driven into such a hopeless situation, and it had attained an entire 100% increase, allowing him to deal with the predicament before him. He was like a fish that had leaped through the heavenly gates to be transformed into a dragon that flew proudly through the arena.
The clansmen of the Chen Clan were flabbergasted by this scene. Since the 2nd round of the competition began, they’d been constantly shocked by the divine might that Chen Xi revealed as he launched counterattack after counterattack.
At this point, this shock had arrived at an unprecedented height, and it caused them to feel dazed while their minds became blank.
He was too formidable!
Moreover, all of this was so inconceivable.
Is this really something that a Fifth Star Region Lord from the Ancient God Domain can accomplish?
Chen Lingkong tightly clenched the hands beneath his sleeves, causing his knuckles to crack loudly. He was forcefully restraining the shock and anxiousness in his heart.
He’d thought that success was within reach, yet never had he expected that a turn of events would occur abruptly, and it was simply like a form of unendurable torture and suffering.
The guests who were observing the competition had been stunned by this as well, and they seemed as if they’d seen a ghost. Throughout the shocking battles that had occurred in the boundless annals of time and all the unparalleled geniuses in the world, it seemed to be impossible to find another battle that impacted them so strongly and made them feel such unexpected shock, and it was impossible to find anyone who could rival Chen Xi.
This wasn’t just world shocking; it was simply unprecedented!
Chen Qiushui and Chen Xiaoyun who were blasted back on the combat arena seemed to be unable to restrain the astonishment in their hearts, and they cried out involuntarily. “How could this be possible?”
At this moment in the battle, even they’d actually started to feel faint admiration towards how tenacious and terrifying Chen Xi was. However, they’d still never imagined that they still wouldn’t be able to crush Chen Xi with Chen Daoyuan’s help, and he’d actually been able to break out of their encirclement in the end!
So, how could they possibly be able to maintain their composure?
Could it be that this fellow is a monster that can’t be subdued?
“The Godslaughter Burst…. The innate technique of the Yazi Clan in the three dimensions. Could it be that… he isn’t afraid that this technique would damage his foundation in the Dao?” Chen Daoyuan’s eyes narrowed while he felt surprised and bewildered in his heart.
According to his knowledge, such a technique could be considered to be heaven defying, and it could instantly double the strength of a cultivator.
However, this technique had a flaw that had to be taken seriously. That flaw was that it was extremely harmful to one’s Dao Foundation when it was utilized, and even if this damage could be repaired, later on, it would definitely cause irreparable damage to one’s cultivation in the future!
This made Chen Daoyuan feel extremely surprised and bewildered. This fellow has actually disregarded his path of cultivation just to attain victory?
He wasn’t aware that Senior White had provided Chen Xi with guidance a very long time ago, and he’d utilized a secret technique within the skull of a Holy Shaman to deal with the flaws of the Godslaughter Burst technique.
That skull of a Holy Shaman had been preserved from the last era, and Chen Xi had refined and absorbed the inheritances within the Seal of the Shaman. Under such circumstances, Chen Xi’s grasp and ability to utilize the Godslaughter Burst had even surpassed the height possessed by the Yazi Clan itself!
On the other hand, the ‘flaws’ in the eyes of others were naturally unable to pose any threat to Chen Xi, and they couldn’t bring any real effect to his path towards the Dao.
At the very most, it would merely make his body fall into a weak state for a year or so after he utilized the technique.
So, Chen Xi didn’t care about these details if he could win the battle.
While it took some time to describe, it had actually occurred in an instant. Chen Daoyuan and the others didn’t even have the time to recover from their shock when Chen Xi had attacked.
His will to fight blazed and his entire body seemed as if it was on fire. He seemed like a peerless emperor who had emerged from the heavens, and his imposing aura was shocking to the extreme.
His terrifying killing intent made the expressions of Chen Daoyuan and the others changed slightly, and they didn’t dare allow their thoughts to continue running wild.
“Don’t panic! We’ll crush this kid in one go!”
As they shouted loudly, all three of them attacked ferociously as well. They entered into a fierce battle with Chen Xi again, and the surroundings were enveloped in chaos once more.
In next to no time, Chen Xi moved swiftly and seemed all-powerful as he slapped Chen Xiaoyun flying with a single strike of his sword, causing Chen Xiaoyun to crash on the ground like a meteor.
At the same time, Chen Xi’s left chest had been pierced by the red ribbon in Chen Qiushui’s hand. It made his skin and flesh split apart before being completely charred.
However, Chen Xi seemed as if he hadn’t noticed at all, and the blade of his sword spun before he shook it!
The red ribbon was minced into pieces by the Talisman Armament, and then the myriad of strands of flame that formed it was dispersed towards the surroundings. On the other hand, Chen Qiushui seemed as if she’d been struck by lightning and was injured by the sword qi. Her peerlessly delicate face suddenly turned pale while she coughed up a mouthful of blood, and she had a weak look on her face.
Even though the myriad of strands of divine flame that formed the divine ribbon had converged together once more and recovered to its original state after the red ribbon was minced into pieces, this treasure had still suffered a heavy injury that made its might reduce steeply.
After he crushed both Chen Xiaoyun and Chen Qiushui with force, Chen Daoyuan’s attack approached as well, causing Chen Xi to have no choice but to abandon them and divert his attack towards Chen Daoyuan.
He had no choice but to admit that Chen Daoyuan’s combat strength was terrifying to the extreme. Chen Xi had to rely on his cultivation at the Fifth Star Region Lord Realm, the might of the 5th level of the Sword Emperor Realm, and the Godslaughter Burst in order to be able to go against Chen Daoyuan.
Obviously, defeating him wasn’t something that could be accomplished in a short while.
That was why Chen Xi was willing to suffer injury in order to crush Chen Xiaoyun and Chen Qiushui.
Because as far as he was concerned, crushing them as soon as possible was like eliminating two of Chen Daoyuan’s wings, and it would allow him to let go of everything and do whatever it took to defeat Chen Daoyuan.
The battle continued. In the next part of the battle, Chen Xi had suffered injuries again while he ceaselessly crushed Chen Xiaoyun and Chen Qiushui.
They were already not a match for Chen Xi before this. So, once Chen Xi had utilized the Godslaughter Burst to double his combat strength, how could they be able to continue resisting Chen Xi’s attacks?
In merely a short moment, both of them had been injured. Their vital energy was in disorder, and they were almost suppressed and eliminated.
On the other hand, Chen Xi wasn’t in much of a better state because he has to resist Chen Daoyuan’s attacks. While he tried to deal with Chen Xiaoyun and Chen Qiushui, he was being constantly injured. So, his entire body was bathed with blood while fresh blood gurgled out from him, and it caused him to seem horrifying as if he was made from blood.
However, Chen Xi was already accustomed to this after experiencing countless bloody battles. It was simply like a common occurrence to him, and it was unable to affect his combat strength at all.
This was the benefit of experience and tempering.
For example, even though Chen Xiaoyun and Chen Qiushui were from the Divine Dao Protector Clans and possessed both extraordinary reserves and extremely formidable combat strength, they couldn’t compare to Chen Xi at all when it came to experience in battle and slaughter.
Since he’d started cultivating, Chen Xi had spent most of his time in battle. He’d fought his way from the Mortal Dimension to the Immortal Dimension, from the Immortal Dimension to the Ancient God Domain…. He’d been constantly in battle until now, and the fierce battles, desperate battles, and bloody battles he’d experienced throughout his lifetime were simply impossible to count.
All of this allowed Chen Xi to possess combat experience and a will to fight that was almost impossible for an ordinary person to attain.
Especially under the circumstances that they were injured. Chen Xiaoyun and Chen Qiushui couldn’t compare to Chen Xi at all!
The battle grew more and more intense, and it shocked everyone in the surroundings.
At this moment, practically everyone had discerned the strategy that Chen Xi had adopted. He intended to eliminate Chen Xiaoyun and Chen Qiushui before he fought Chen Daoyuan with all his might.
Chen Daoyuan had naturally noticed this as well. However, the troublesome part to him was that Chen Xi was too ruthless. Moreover, this ruthlessness wasn’t just reflected in how he treated his enemies, it was reflected in how Chen Xi treated himself as well.
Chen Xi hadn’t even hesitated to suffer injuries in succession so that he could accomplish his objective, and he fought as if he didn’t value his life at all. This made Chen Daoyuan helpless against him, and he could only attack Chen Xi with all his might so that he could give Chen Xiaoyun and Chen Qiushui even more time to catch their breaths.
Unfortunately, he wasn’t as ruthless as Chen Xi, so the results he could attain were limited.
It wasn’t long before a wave of exclaims resounded in the surroundings. Chen Xiaoyun had actually been forcefully blasted out of the combat arena, and he crashed to the ground while coughing up blood. After that, his entire body twitched as if he was experiencing a seizure.
He’d actually been eliminated in advance!
All the spectators were astounded.
According to the rules announced by Chen Lingkong, the 2nd round of the competition was a battle royal, and the last person standing on the arena would be the final victor.
Now, even if Chen Xiaoyun still had the strength to fight, he’d been kicked off the combat arena and had lost all qualifications to participate.
Of course, this wasn’t the source of their shock. The spectators were shocked because Chen Xi had actually been able to eliminate Chen Xiaoyun while fighting a three on one battle, so it felt extraordinarily inconceivable to them!
After Chen Xiaoyun was removed from the combat arena, the situation had clearly started to become beneficial to Chen Xi.
After another 10 minutes passed, another deafening sound of collision resounded. A shrill cry resounded from Chen Qiushui while her figure flew backward uncontrollably and smashed forcefully against the wall, and then her vision turned black while she actually fell unconscious.
Even though she hadn’t been kicked out like Chen Xiaoyun, she’d fallen unconscious, and it was equivalent to having lost completely and being unable to continue fighting.
This made a wave of clamorous noise arise in the surroundings. All the spectators were dumbstruck by this scene, and they didn’t dare believe that Chen Xi was actually so formidable.
Could it be that he’s really going to… succeed in this counterattack? Chen Lingkong’s expression was livid and gloomy while his eyes flickered incessantly.
All the guests at the spectating area were stunned speechless. They were shocked by the heaven defying combat strength that Chen Xi had revealed.
Wu Xuechan and Tang Xian were shocked as well. They’d originally held no hopes for anything because they’d seen through the outcome of this battle.
But all of that was established on the foundation that it would be extremely difficult for Chen Xi to win. So, when they saw this impossible thing start to become possible, the two of them couldn’t avoid feeling astounded and surprised. Because it had truly exceeded their expectations.
“Looks like even the two of us can’t figure our Little Junior Brother out.” Wu Xuechan and Tang Xian exchanged glances, and they couldn’t help but smile bitterly. However, their voices were filled with the feeling of gratification and pride.
An eagle would grow up one day and strike the sky.
Jade would glow one day and shock the world.
Presently, Chen Xi was standing proudly in the ranks of Region Lords, and he already possessed the strength to defeat Eighth Star Region Lords of the Divine Dao Protector Clans and could even go against a Ninth Star Region Lord!
They could imagine what sort of world shocking brilliance he would reveal in the future, and the intensity of the shock he would bring to the entire world!
