Chapter 1221 – Zhao Feng Strikes
In the Wild Ancient Secret Dimension, Zhao Feng had offended the Golden Jade Race, the Blue Scaled Race, the Sky Water Yao Race, and the Spacetime Sacred Land. In addition, these factions had all lost out to Zhao Feng, a matter which they naturally wouldn’t brazenly announce. At most, they would secretly investigate him and put him on wanted lists.
More than thirty factions of varying size were attending this Gulong Martial Gathering, but very few of them recognized Zhao Feng.
Even though this was the case, Zhao Feng’s current reputation was no less than that of a genius from a peak four-star faction. More people wanted to challenge him than those who wanted to challenge the geniuses of the Quasi-God Ranking.
“Quasi-God Thundercry got him first!” Quasi-God Mo Gui unhappily grumbled.
However, Quasi-God Thundercry was quite strong. He was skilled in Lightning Intent and could unleash extremely powerful attacks.
“No rush. Let’s have Quasi-God Thundercry test the waters,” the Rank Four True God next to Mo Gui slowly said.
“Those who bring disaster upon themselves can’t live long!” Quasi-God Di Lin shot a vicious glare at Zhao Feng. Although he was no match for Zhao Feng, he could tell that many other Quasi-God geniuses were showing clear hostility to Zhao Feng.
Meanwhile, the three True God experts from Yellow Dragon Pavilion had been keeping a close watch on Zhao Feng’s group this entire time.
“That girl wearing the veil is Han Ning’er!” True God Zhongtu said with a gloomy expression.
“We can’t let her go to the Ziling Zone!” Another True God spoke with a tone that would accept no objection.
The Ziling Zone was a zone where the Dao of Medicine reigned supreme. The ruling faction was the Life Sacred Land, and of the four major five-star factions, two of them specialized in the Dao of Medicine.
If Han Ning’er was allowed to reach the Ziling Zone, her Eye of Life would allow her to very easily enter a peak four-star faction. If her luck was good, she might even end up being favored by a five-star faction.
“That lad was the one who took Han Ning’er and killed a Rank Three True God?” A True God expert next to True God Zhongtu stared at Zhao Feng, disbelief in his eyes.
At this moment, Zhao Feng descended onto the fighting stage.
“I am Quasi-God Thundercry. Who are you? State your name!” Quasi-God Thundercry coldly glared at Zhao Feng.
“I am the person who will defeat you,” Zhao Feng replied with a carefree smile.
“Good!” Quasi-God Thundercry’s face turned wrathful as he spat out this single word.
Two balls of lightning immediately condensed in Quasi-God Thundercry’s hands, both of them crackling with savage arcs of electricity.
“Heavens! Quasi-God Thundercry has reached Level Two Lightning Intent!” Gasps of shock rose from the spectating crowd.
Quasi-Gods who could comprehend even a Level One Intent became well-known among the other Quasi-Gods, and Quasi-God Thundercry actually managed to reach Level Two in Lightning Intent.
“That golden-haired brat probably won’t even last five moves against Quasi-God Thundercry!”
Quite a few people gloated at the thought of Zhao Feng’s defeat.
Lightning Intent could be said to be the offensive Intent with the greatest capacity for damage. Zhao Feng had acted so arrogantly just now, so wouldn’t it be completely humiliating if he couldn’t even last five moves against Quasi-God Thundercry?
Arcs of lightning crackled across the stage. Quasi-God Thundercry’s body seemed to transform into an enormous bolt of lightning, streaking through the dark sky.
“Lightning Spike!” In a flash, Quasi-God Thundercry was behind Zhao Feng, his hands stabbing forward. Endless Lightning energy began to fuse with the balls of lightning in his hand, molding them into two spikes of electricity that flew at Zhao Feng.
“Sacred Lightning Body.” Zhao Feng activated the Sacred Lightning Body without even a flicker of emotion.
Five-colored lightning flowed around his body as a stifling pressure exerted itself on his surroundings.
“Eh?” Quasi-God Thundercry let out a gasp of surprise.
He didn’t expect Zhao Feng to be a body-strengthening expert in the Dao of Lightning. Moreover, Zhao Feng’s Lightning Intent had also reached Level Two.
Zhao Feng’s body was extremely formidable; the pressure Quasi-God Thundercry felt made his entire body feel uncomfortable.
However, Quasi-God Thundercry had no idea that Zhao Feng wasn’t even using his full strength. If Zhao Feng used his full power, not even Quasi-God Tian Xue would be a match for him, but he would cause far too much of a stir if he did this. Zhao Feng still had many enemies watching from the shadows, so he chose to keep his true fighting strength hidden.
Quasi-God Thundercry’s lightning impacted against Zhao Feng’s body. After a brief clash between these two different kinds of lightning, Quasi-God Thundercry’s attack failed to harm Zhao Feng.
Zhao Feng used his strength and Divine Power to create a five-colored lightning fist.
“Haha, you want to hit me with an attack like that?” Quasi-God Thundercry moved like lightning as he backed up to avoid Zhao Feng’s attack.
The dreadful clashing of lightning on the stage incessantly battered against the surrounding array. In this brief moment, the two of them exchanged multiple moves.
As a Lightning Dao body-strengthening expert, Zhao Feng had a very high resistance to lightning. Meanwhile, Quasi-God Thundercry was extremely fast and was capable of dodging every one of Zhao Feng’s lethal attacks.
The spectators never expected Zhao Feng to fight on such equal terms with Quasi-God Thundercry.
Only Quasi-God Thundercry himself knew that he was in an extremely difficult situation. Every time he got close to Zhao Feng, he would feel an invisible pressure upon his body, and he had not been able to harm a single hair on Zhao Feng’s body.
In addition, it might have appeared that he had dodged all of Zhao Feng’s attacks, but there would always be some ripples of strength imperceptible to the normal person that would strike his body.
The more he fought, the more surprised Quasi-God Thundercry became. He was simply incapable of hurting Zhao Feng. And Zhao Feng seemed to be just playing with him, relaxed and content as he slowly shaved away at Quasi-God Thundercry’s strength.
“Thousand Lightning Flash!” Quasi-God Thundercry clenched his teeth as his body exploded with waves of lightning. At the same time, the lightning crackling through the stage became even more dazzling as it began to revolve around Quasi-God Thundercry.
“What’s going on? Quasi-God Thundercry is using the Thousand Lightning Flash!? He made his reputation on that technique!”
“That golden-haired brat’s body might be too tough. Quasi-God Thundercry probably plans to use this attack to break straight through his defense and defeat him in one strike!”
Quite a few people in the crowd were left confused by this development and began to speculate.
In his pavilion, Quasi-God Zi Feng focused his gaze on Zhao Feng.
“This brat’s strength isn’t bad.” A look of surprise appeared on his face.
“Break!” Quasi-God Thundercry howled as his entire body transformed into a searing bolt of lightning that shot toward Zhao Feng.
“It’s about time to end this,” Zhao Feng softly muttered, a relaxed expression on his face.
The center of the stage exploded with arcs of lightning, making the dark night as bright as day. The lightning swiftly dissipated, and in the center of the stage, one person quietly stood: Zhao Feng.
Quasi-God Thundercry was lying in front of Zhao Feng, his body scorched black and his aura weak.
The crowd exploded into an uproar.
“How? He lost?”
“How did Quasi-God Thundercry lose?”
Logically speaking, when Quasi-God Thundercry used Thousand Lightning Flash, Zhao Feng’s defeat should have been certain, but the result was the complete opposite. The lightning was too bright, so most of the crowd had no idea how Quasi-God Thundercry lost.
A figure jumped down onto the stage: a True God from Quasi-God Thundercry’s faction.
This elder shot Zhao Feng a vicious glare before taking Quasi-God Thundercry and leaving.
“That boy’s skin is too thick, his flesh too tough. Otherwise, he would have been the one to lose!”
In the end, the crowd attributed Zhao Feng’s victory to the fact that he was a Lightning Dao body-strengthening expert, a direct counter to Quasi-God Thundercry.
With this battle over, Zhao Feng returned to the Sky Haze Race group.
“Brother Zhao, you were hiding your strength?” Quasi-God Jian Feng asked in confusion.
In Zhao Feng’s battle with Hou Qing, his Lightning energy was very strong, but in the battle just now, Zhao Feng didn’t show a particularly impressive level of power. This could only mean that Zhao Feng was hiding his strength.
“Mm.” Zhao Feng nodded, but he didn’t say anymore.
“I want to challenge Quasi-God Jin Zhen!” The stage shook as a youth with a dark yellow body, a sharply outlined face, and healthy complexion appeared.
The Quasi-God Jin Zhen he wanted to challenge was ranked twentieth on the Quasi-God Ranking.
“Someone who wants to challenge a prodigy of the Quasi-God Ranking has already appeared!”
The crowd instantly grew excited.
“Hmph, if you want to challenge Quasi-God Jin Zhen, you’ll have to get past me first!” A golden-clothed figure rushed out from the faction that Quasi-God Jin Zhen belonged to.
Many geniuses had come to the Gulong Martial Gathering to challenge the prodigies of the Quasi-God Ranking. However, these prodigies were not willing to take every challenger, so they employed this strategy.
If someone challenged a prodigy of the Quasi-God Ranking, the faction that the prodigy belonged to would send someone else to meet the challenger first. Only after defeating this individual would the challenger have the right to fight the Quasi-God Ranking prodigy.
“Okay! I’ll warm myself up with you!” The youth with dark yellow skin began to swell with strength, and a cloud of dark yellow dust began to shroud the stage.
“This is…?” The golden-clothed youth was astonished. He could sense that his opponent had seemingly taken control of nature and that he was currently being weakened by an enormous pressure.
“Golden Radiance Slash!” The golden-clothed youth fired off a sharp golden light that shot toward the man with yellow skin.
“Eat my fist!” The yellow-skinned man drew upon Earth energy, causing yellow earth to orbit around his fists as he punched.
“What dreadful strength!”
After this exchange, the golden-clothed youth began to act more cautiously. This man with dark yellow skin was powerful, and his defense was impressive. Even his Metal Dao attacks would find it very challenging to break through.
The spectators also began to pay attention to this yellow-skinned man. It was already quite extraordinary that he was able to fight on equal terms with another genius from Quasi-God Jin Zhen’s faction.
“Could this person be the genius that the Submerged Dragon Sect discovered several years ago?”
“I heard that he has a mutant ancient bloodline!”
With so many people in the crowd, there were inevitably some people who knew the background of this yellow-skinned man.
“A mutant ancient bloodline?” This news sent a shock through the crowd.
As the various races intermarried, mutations in ancient bloodlines would sometimes occur. There were good and bad mutations, but the man with dark yellow skin had clearly inherited a good mutation.
Boom! Bang! Crash!
The match on stage was getting more and more intense. The golden-clothed youth was gradually losing ground and was even beginning to shy away from direct conflict.
“I’d like to see where you can run!” The yellow-skinned man loudly laughed. Circulating the strength of his unique bloodline, he slammed his palms against the ground.
The dark yellow earth on stage instantly began to gather, creating tall walls of earth that surrounded the two fighters.
Boom! Bang! Crash!
The walls of earth completely obscured their battle. Only those with powerful Divine Sense could see through these walls formed from that special bloodline power to observe the battle within.
Zhao Feng activated the see-through abilities of his left eye. In a flash, everything before Zhao Feng turned into a world of golden particles. Zhao Feng could now see through the earthen walls.
But Zhao Feng’s expression suddenly shifted as his gaze dropped down below the fighting stage.
There’s someone underground!?
His mind reeling in shock, Zhao Feng used his left eye to see what was going on.
