Chapter 401 – Peerless Grace

Amidst an expanse of silence, Emperor Chu’s gaze descended onto two people in the end, and he said indifferently, “Lu Xiao, Fan Yunlan. Both of you don’t have to participate in the following battles.”

His voice was clear and resounded in the heavens and the earth, causing everyone present to be shocked in their hearts yet no one dared make a clamor.

Lu Xiao was a disciple of the central plains’ Divinewood Sect. Just like Chen Xi, he was unknown to the public in the past, and he was a dark horse that fought his way out through the Allstar Meeting. Since he was capable of ranking in the top 12, his strength was naturally indisputably strong.

At this moment, when they heard he was directly eliminated, everyone present couldn’t help but feel a wave of pity in their hearts.

But Lu Xiao seemed to have been clear of the outcome since long ago. His expression was calm and without any unwillingness or rage, and he left of his own accord after bowing to Emperor Chu.

Chen Xi didn’t pay attention to this person as an unjust feeling had arisen instantly in his heart when he heard Fan Yunlan had been eliminated. According to his knowledge, Fan Yunlan’s strength was absolutely not inferior to Qing Xiuyi, Zhao Qinghe, and the others. Why has she been eliminated?

This is unjust!

He couldn’t help but arouse a trace of doubt towards Emperor Chu.

But in the next moment, he came to an understanding after he heard what Emperor Chu said next.

“Fan Yunlan, you ought to understand why I’m not allowing you to participate in the battle of the top 10.” Emperor Chu glanced subtly at Chen Xi before speaking to Fan Yunlan.

Fan Yunlan bit her pink and moist cherry lips and nodded. “I understand.”

“Then withdraw yourself. Don’t worry, I’ve promised your sect that I’ll surely allow you to enter the Primeval Battlefield. As for the Dragon Transformation Pool and martial techniques in the treasure vault of the Imperial Family, they aren’t something you should possess with your identity.” Emperor Chu spoke indifferently.

Chen Xi instantly understood the reason. Fan Yunlan was from the Bloodcrescent Devil Sect, the mortal enemy of the entire Darchu Dynasty’s cultivation world. So allowing her to participate in the Allstar Meeting was probably already the bottom line that Emperor Chu was able to accept, and it was naturally impossible for him to allow her to obtain even more benefits.

What caused Chen Xi to be completely at ease was that Fan Yunlan still had the chance to enter the Primeval Battlefield, and this was enough.

“Be careful.” Before she left, Fan Yunlan sent a voice transmission in a light voice to Chen Xi.

Chen Xi nodded and didn’t say anything because the battles of the top 10 was about to begin.

“Up until this moment, the Allstar Meeting had already arrived at an extremely important moment. Three out of the 10 of you will be able to choose any martial technique or Divine Ability from the Imperial Family’s treasure vault.” The Civil Marquis had his hands behind his back and said in a clear voice, “Moreover, all 10 of you may enter the Dragon Transformation Pool to cultivate. This is a supreme fortune and a special gift of his Majesty to all of you. I hope that all of you can go all out and not disappoint his Majesty’s great kindness!”

“Thank you, your Majesty!” Chen Xi and the others bowed towards Emperor Chu who was high above in the sky when they heard this.

Emperor Chu smiled lightly as he nodded before waving his hand. Instantly, 12 resplendent rays of light enveloped down onto Chen Xi and the others, causing their exhausted True Essence, Shaman Energy, and physical energy to recover completely while those with injuries recovered right away as well, and it was extremely miraculous.

Merely this indescribably brilliant technique revealed Emperor Chu’s exceedingly high cultivation as any other Earthly Immortal Realm expert present would probably be unable to achieve this.

“Civil Marquis, announce the name list for the fourth round of battles.” Emperor Chu instructed before closing his eyes in meditation.

“The battles of the top 10 is divided into five battles to select the top five. After that, the following battle of the top five will be done by drawing lots.” The Civil Marquis spoke in a clear voice. “The first battle, Qing Xiuyi versus Fourth Young Master Zhou.”

Chen Xi, Zhen Liuqing, and all the others were extremely astounded.

Qing Xiuyi versus Young Master Zhou?

Young Master Zhou’s strength was formidable indeed, he’d never gone all out since the competition began, and his strength wasn’t just slightly stronger when compared to his strength during the Goldlake Meeting.

On the other hand, Qing Xiuyi was a reincarnated Heavenly Immortal. Her strength was obvious to everyone, causing her to be held in high esteem by all the Earthly Immortal Realm experts, and she seemed like the most powerful competitor in the competition for the first in the Allstar Meeting.

Even Zhao Qinghe, Huangfu Changtian, and the others had taken Qing Xiuyi to be their final target, and they didn’t dare be careless against her in the slightest.

But this was probably intentionally arranged by Emperor Chu. Otherwise, if Qing Xiuyi was allowed to go against Zhao Qinghe and the other top experts that received the most attention, then the Allstar Meeting this time would probably be unable to be considered as perfect.

Actually, according to convention in the previous Allstar Meetings, the battles between the peak experts was usually left to the final round.

Swoosh! Swoosh!

No matter what, the name list of the battles was already provided, so Qing Xiuyi and Young Master Zhou naturally didn’t dare go against it, and they executed their movement techniques right away to flash towards the Devilbane Arena. 


“Civil Marquis, isn’t his Majesty’s arrangement slightly inappropriate?” In midair, the Zhou Clan’s Ancestor, Zhou Xuantong was slightly displeased and said with a frown, “Qing Xiuyi has recovered half of her memories from her previous life as a Heavenly Immortal, and she’s the fully deserving number one expert amongst all the young geniuses present here. His Majesty’s arrangement of making the little brat from my clan to go against her is obviously slightly…”

“Old fellow, you’re still so lawless and actually dare question the decree of his Majesty?” The Civil Marquis had a straight face yet his eyes revealed a smile. Obviously, he knew that Zhou Xuantong’s character was like this.

“Hmph!” Zhou Xuantong was only venting his complaints as well. Actually, he was already extremely satisfied that Fourth Young Master Zhou was capable of ranking in the top 10, and he didn’t feel much resentment in his heart.

“You seem to be very concerned about Fourth Young Master Zhou?” On the other side, Zhen Liuqing followed along Chen Xi’s gaze to look at the Devilbane Arena from afar, and she sent a voice transmission with a light voice.

“This fellow looks to be arrogant and overbearing, yet his character isn’t bad. I’d once said that I would treat him to some wine, and I don’t wish to have a drink full of grievance after he lost,” said Chen Xi with a nod.

Zhen Liuqing sighed and said, “Unfortunately, his opponent is Qing Xiuyi.” When she spoke up to here, she raised her head and asked seriously. “Right, Qing Xiuyi once pursued you with the intent of killing you. Do you want me to take revenge for you if I encounter her?”

Chen Xi was stunned, and then he shook his head decisively. “The enmity between us is slightly complicated. It’s better if I resolve it myself, and it isn’t justifiable to involve you.”

Zhen Liuqing blinked her eyes and smiled. “Alright, up to you.”

After a short moment.

“They’re beginning.” Chen Xi stared at the Devilbane Arena and said with a frown. “Qing Xiuyi’s strength is terrifying indeed, and she’d always been conserving strength earlier, yet has chosen to take the initiative to attack this time!”

Qing Xiuyi’s entire body was enveloped in a wisp of a hazy mist, causing her peerlessly beautiful face to be faintly visible, and she seemed to be slender and graceful. But once she made a move, her essence, energy, and spirit instantly changed. It caused others to feel as if they’d walked from a beautiful place in the south that was covered in a drizzle and breeze into an extremely awful land of ice and snow, and it was extremely terrifying.


Wisps of glowing mist tore through the sky like the most dazzling flowing lights, and they were peerlessly sharp, whereas, her figure was like dense rainwater that covered the entire arena, present everywhere and all pervasive.

When looked at from afar, Qing Xiuyi seemed as if she’d split into a myriad of clones, causing the entire arena to have dazzling rays of light drifting upon it, whereas under the cover of the rays of light, her beautiful figure that was faint like mist was present everywhere.

When faced with an attack like this that blotted out the sky, Young Master Zhou was extremely extraordinary as well. He howled repeatedly as his figure flashed out like a dragon and surged through the arena as he launched the most frenzied attack.

But no matter how hard he tried, he was incapable of breaking through Qing Xiuyi’s attack, and it was even to the extent that he hadn’t even touched the corners of Qing Xiuyi’s sleeves up until now.

This is probably a rare Grand Dao profundity! Chen Xi’s pupils constricted, and he felt as if Qing Xiuyi’s entire body had transformed into a wisp of light that was present everywhere. Her attacks were simply swift to the point they surpassed the restriction of space and time, and once one fell into her attacks, then unless one was capable of breaking through those lights, one would fall into a passive state of being oppressed by her attacks.


“The Grand Dao of Light! I never imagined that this Young Miss has actually concealed her strength so deeply. She actually only revealed such a terrifying Dao Grade martial technique at this moment.”

“It’s undoubtedly the Grand Dao of Light, and it forms two extremes with the Grand Dao of Darkness that brings eternal night. Without light, there is no life, and without darkness, there’s no end.”

“Amazing! Yin and Yang split into the heavens and the earth, the five elements developed the world, and light and darkness ruled the lands. Such a Grand Dao profundity is even more difficult to comprehend than the Grand Daos of Yin and Yang, and it’s ranked amongst the rare Grand Daos. Even amongst the numerous Grand Daos, it can be considered to be at the top, and comprehending it is extremely difficult. But if she’s capable of attaining a certain level in this Grand Dao, then overcoming the tribulations to become a Heavenly Immortal will probably not be difficult.” Outside the Devilbane Arena, all the Earthly Immortal Realm experts exclaimed repeatedly with admiration. Obviously, they never imagined that Qing Xiuyi would have actually grasped such an exceedingly rare Grand Dao of Light.

When one’s cultivation arrived at their level, one’s understanding of the Grand Dao would have already arrived at an unbelievable height. So they naturally understood that the various Grand Daos in the world could actually be divided into two types.

One was a Dao that was related to the utilization of techniques, like the Sword Dao, Blade Dao, Devourer Dao, Obliteration Dao. All of these were a type of comprehension and grasp of technique.

The other type were quintessence Daos, like Yin, Yang, the five elements, star, wind, and so on and so forth. These Grand Daos came from the quintessence of all the things in the universe, and it was a mastering of energy.

However, the Grand Dao of Light didn’t just contain quintessence energies, it also encompassed the grasp of technique. As soon as light shone out, it was all pervasive and present everywhere, this was the utilization technique of light!

Something worthy of mentioning was that no matter if it was Daos based on the utilization of technique, or Daos of quintessence, all of them weren’t separated from each other but complemented each other.

For example, the Sword Dao had to rely on quintessence Dao Insights to execute it. For example, the eight moves of Chen Xi’s Myriad Convergence Sword Scripture contained various quintessence Dao Insights, and conversely, quintessence Dao Insights had to rely on technique Daos to be executed, otherwise, it would become useless.



“How terrifying! This is Qing Xiuyi’s true strength?”

“My god! Could it be that the Dao Insight she executed is the Light Grand Dao of legend?”

“She really deserves to be a reincarnated Heavenly Immortal. This woman will probably be able to firmly take first place in the Allstar Meeting this time!”

After they witnessed the scenes in the Devilbane Arena, all of the cultivators in Silken City were shocked to the extreme.

At this moment, Qing Xiuyi’s attacks filled with Light Dao Insight, and it poured down while being present everywhere. No matter how Young Master Zhou resisted, he was unable to escape the envelopment of light.


Amidst the dazzling light, a figure staggered back a few steps in an extremely sorry state.

“I admit defeat!” A hoarse voice sounded out.

Instantly, the boundless light that enveloped the arena dispersed completely, and the scene within was clearly reflected in the eyes of everyone present.

On the arena, Young Master Zhou’s face was pale as he panted repeatedly for breath, and a trace of blood hung on the corners of his mouth, whereas Qing Xiuyi stood proudly before him. Her slender and graceful figure was enveloped in a layer of hazy mist, causing her to seem like a celestial maiden with peerless grace that remained aloof from the world.
