Chapter 1084: The Final Round
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
“The fourth group, Xia Jing Zhi, Fan Yi Qian, Cang Xuan!” Great Paragon Imperial Wind announced with a smile.
“It’s my turn!” Fan Yi Qian felt his fighting spirit soaring to the sky. On the surface of his body, thunder could be seen swimming away.
Xia Jing Zhi was a beautiful girl. Her aura felt amiable, and anyone would likely garner a pleasant feeling towards her.
Cang Xuan… that was General Xuan.
Xue Ying sat there silently as he watched. He was paying more attention to General Xuan: ‘During the first round when we had to resist against the soul and willpower assaults, he, I and Xia Fa Yang all fell down practically at the same time. I wonder if he specialized in some soul assault technique.’
Those with an incredibly strong soul and willpower might specialize in the soul aspect. They might have a cultivation technique meant for protecting the soul, though it did not mean they must specialize in a soul assault technique! Those with strong soul and willpower had many different Dao paths they could take. Only great experts who specialized in soul and willpower assault would definitely be powerful in their soul and willpower too!
The battle immediately started.
Very soon, the guests spectating the battle felt startled. The standard of this battle seemed to be quite similar to that between ‘Xue Ying and Xia Fa Yang’s group! It was more spectacular than the first and second round.
“Die, die for me, everyone, die!” Fan Yi Qian had turned entirely mad. His eyes were like thunder. He had clearly activated his forbidden technique.
A bronze pole swept across grandly. With a body imbued in thunder, every move seemed to produce a thunderclap. His speed was outstanding, and in the blink of an eye, Fan Yi Qian had exerted a hundred to a thousand moves! He was not just fast, his power was tremendous and frightening too!
‘How amazing!’ Xue Ying was inwardly shocked as he watched, ‘Such frightening strength. It seems doubtful if my Five Phases Sealing Technique could even withstand against such berserk strikes.’
Xia Jing Zhi also used her technique. Her Dao of Sword was Yin and soft in nature. She could still hold on under the violent attacks by Fan Yi Qian.
But what startled Xue Ying most was that ‘General Xuan’.
“Peng peng peng.”
The body of General Xuan seemed to let out a violet splendor. The violet brilliance shone across the platform and also engulfed Xia Jing Zhi and Fan Yi Qian. General Xuan personally dealt against ‘Fan Yi Qian’ using a great hammer.
The great hammer and bronze pole.
The great hammer seemed to be fleeting and light. But General Xuan did not seem to be disadvantaged. He could withstand against the strikes from the pole. Furthermore, over time as the violet brilliance entangled and restricted the other party, Fan Yi Qian felt his body becoming sluggish as if he was moving through a quagmire. Even as he let out a frustrated shout, the strength which he could utilize seemed to drop continually until eventually, General Xuan casually smashed his hammer down.
“Peng.” He easily smashed the significantly weakened Fan Yi Qian out of the battle platform.
General Xuan then turned to Xia Jing Zhi.
Xia Jing Zhi was originally weaker in her body cultivation. As the restriction from the violet brilliance became heavier and heavier, any tenth level expert could easily defeat her. General Xuan merely went over and send out a smash, blasting Xia Jing Zhi away.
‘The moment he activated his domain, it is at the peak of the tenth level power. Furthermore, it is also strengthening over time. At least I have yet to witness the limit of the domain before the battle ended. What exactly is this cultivation technique?’ Xue Ying lamented in his heart. Given his wisdom, he could not discern what this technique was. But it was clearly strong.
In the fourth group, General Xuan won. The Cang Clan had at least won a group battle.
Xue Ying watched in shock at the green-robed young woman who was the only one standing in the circular battle platform.
‘Fan Mo Zhu? She won?’ Xue Ying was shocked. One of the reasons why Fan Mo Zhu won was because her two opponents were slightly weaker. More importantly, Fan Mo Zhu was very strong, ‘Fan San Yuan, Fan Mo Zhu, and Fan Yi Qian… the three of them should be at the same level in strength. The gap isn’t huge at all. Fan Yi Qian is berserk and strong, Fan San Yuan is more balanced. As for Fan Mo Zhu… what an amazing Dao of Sword. It seems to be close in level to that of Xia Wu Hua.’
The people in the hall were currently discussing among each other.
Because the second round had already ended. Of the five grouped battle, the Summer Clan won two, the Fan Clan won two and Cang Clan won one.
“Haha, both the Summer Clan and Fan Clan won two groups each, and the Cang Clan won one. Hence, currently, the Summer Clan has accumulated five golden cauldrons, the Fan Clan with four golden cauldrons and the Cang Clan with two golden cauldrons.” Great Paragon Imperial Wind announced.
Cang Clan’s two golden cauldrons were acquired by General Xuan!
As for the Fan Clan, Xue Ying had contributed more than half the cauldrons.
The Summer Clan… was overall too strong.
“After a slight respite, when everyone regains your strength, we will begin the third round and also the final round.” Great Paragon Imperial Wind said. There were quite a few who were heavily injured during the battle previously, or that they spent too much heart force. Hence, there was a need to give them a period to rest.
Above the great hall.
Emperor Summer looked towards Ancestor Fan with a grin: “Brother Fan, according to the rules of the competition between the three clans, this third round would allow these young fellows to use all their techniques. My Summer Clan has not just two geniuses, Xia Fa Yang and Xia Wu Hua in this era. I did not know that Cheng Yuan, this child, has grasped the <Great Dao Song>. Even though your Fan Clan has that Ying Shan Xue Ying, and Cang Xuan from the Cang Clan, they are both merely one person! And my Summer Clan has three juniors who are extremely powerful. By then, their results will accumulate. In addition to the fact that my Summer Clan got an advantage during the first two rounds, I am 80-90% confident that my Summer Clan will win this competition.”
With the humble attitude of Emperor Summer, even though he mentioned 80-90% confidence, in reality, the outcome was final.
“Young Brother Fan, your Fan Clan has lost five times. It seems you will be losing the sixth time as well.” Emperor Cang chuckled.
“Hmph, six times… this time, three young geniuses emerged from the Summer Clan that is stronger than the previous five competitions.” Ancestor Fan frowned.
He was very confident of Xue Ying.
He would absolutely sweep across all opponents in a one-on-one battle!
But he was just by himself! Fan San Yuan and the others were quite outstanding, yet compared to ‘Xia Fa Yang’ and ‘Xia Cheng Yuan’, they were still lacking.
“No matter what, if your clan lost, your clan lost. It would be the sixth consecutive time.” Emperor Summer chuckled.
They did not really care much about winning or losing.
To them, unparalleled existences, they were not many things that felt entertaining. To make their old friend ‘break the record’ again was something that Emperor Summer and Emperor Cang felt interesting.
“No rush. It is not yet final!” Ancestor Fan nonchalantly replied. On the surface, he seemed calm. Nevertheless, he understood in his heart that there appeared to be no hope in this competition between the three clans.
As they rested, all sorts of rare wine were brought over. After drinking the wine, it would warm the spirit and nourish the body. After two hours, everyone’s state had regained its peak.
“This is also the final round for this generation’s competition between the three clans.” Great Paragon Imperial Wind chuckled, “The first round is a competition between the soul and willpower. The second round is a competition between the overall disciple nurturing capabilities of each clan. But ultimately, as cultivators, our individual skills are still the most fundamental! It is common for a powerful expert to sweep across a group of other cultivators. Hence, the final round will be the one that allows all you Primal Chaos experts from the three great clans to unleash all your strength.”
Great Paragon Imperial Wind waved his hand.
Immediately, a chain of 15 Eden Worlds appeared in the center of the palace hall, “In a while, the 15 of you will enter an Eden World each. His Majesty Emperor Summer will personally form many waves of enemies.”
“When a wave of enemies is defeated, that disciple will earn a golden cauldron for his clan. Two waves of enemies and it’ll be two golden cauldrons… this will continue until the end when all nine waves of enemies are defeated. That’ll be nine golden cauldrons in total!” Great Paragon Imperial Wind laughed, “The golden cauldrons earned by all disciples sent from the three great clans will add up and determine the final outcome.”
“I remembered during the previous competition between the three clans, there were only six who could defeat the first wave of enemies, and two who could defeat the second wave.” Great Paragon Imperial Wind chuckled.
The disciples from the Summer Clan, Fan Clan, and Cang Clan already knew before this.
The final round of the trial was challenging.
Those who were chosen to participate in the competition between the three clans were extremely formidable. But the majority could not win the first wave! As for the second wave? Only the most talented ones in each generation could triumph over the second wave!
And what the Great Paragon Imperial Wind mentioned regarding ‘defeating nine waves of enemies’?
That had never happened in history!
Ever since the competition between the three clans started, the most fantastic disciple only defeated four waves!
“Everyone must stake it all.” Monarch Andromeda anxiously transmitted, “The four of you must at least win the first wave of enemy. And Upper Honored Guest Flying Snow… hopefully, you could win three waves at least!”
Fan Yi Qian, Fan San Yuan, King Sauron, and others were solemn.
The three of them had yet to earn a single golden cauldron for the Fan Clan. Being proud disciples, they were naturally feeling stifled.
‘I could move unhindered across the Icy Plains Tribe. Unless I am going to fail again after coming over to the Summer Wind Ancient Nation? No!’ King Sauron felt unwilling to let things be. Fan San Yuan and Fan Yi Qian were both filled with fighting spirit too. As for Fan Mo Zhu, she sat there silently, and Xue Ying remained calm as usual.
“Alright, time for everyone to enter the Eden World.” Great Paragon Imperial Wind announced.
They moved in an orderly manner.
The 15 Primal Chaos experts stood up. They did not snatch for positions either. The Summer Clan took the center, and the Fan Clan and Cang Clan took the two sides. The 15 Primal Chaos experts entered their own respective Eden Worlds!
