Chapter 421: Fighting the Fierce Shaman Warrior!
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
This Deity expert by the name of Lie Xiao felt rather energized upon walking up to the battle platform under the eyes of countless Deities.
“Begin,” one of the commanders in golden armor shouted out from beside the battle platform. In response, the hourglass floating above the platform began to glow, and the sand inside it started flowing downward.
“Die for me!” roared the Fierce Shaman Warrior.
Lie Xiao immediately turned into a blurry figure. At around ten thousand kilometers per second, his speed was extremely fast.
That’s some speed. Watching the scene from afar, Xue Ying could not help but be inwardly startled. Such speed was actually comparable to his own.
The Fierce Shaman Warrior howled in anger while chasing his target, but he had no way to actually catch up to him.
Hua hua hua…
The body of the Fierce Shaman Warrior began to split in a practiced manner, and very soon, twelve figures of the warriors appeared, all of them approximately five meters tall. The speed of all these figures was not any faster than before, but with all twelve of them closing in on the target from different directions, Lie Xiao found it impossible to escape. In that situation, he chose to instead use his superior speed to fight the smaller versions of Fierce Shaman Warrior one-on-one.
“The division technique employed by the Fierce Shaman Warrior leads to a huge decrease in the combat power of each individual figure. This Lie Xiao might manage to destroy them all, one by one.”
“Destroy them one by one, you say? Most of the participants of the Starfield Selections for the Myriad God Myriad Flower Feast would come up with this idea of destroying the opponents one by one, but does that mean all of them succeed in the end?”
“Those twelve bodies might be weaker, but none of them are so easily dealt with.”
All of the experts inside the palace discussed amongst themselves.
Xue Ying arrived at the same conclusion as he watched the battle from a distance. The combat power of the Fierce Shaman Warriors was extremely high, and even the usage of the Laws of Profound Mysteries found in their techniques was at a terrifying level. It seemed as if they made nearly no mistakes. In fact, it was to the extent that every single body after the split was about as strong as a Tapir Beast! Perhaps their physical strength was not as high as a Tapir Beast’s, but their speed and usage of the Laws of Profound Mysteries was infinitely more advanced. Twelve of them jointly attacking a single target…who would really find it easy to destroy all of them one after one? That was such a difficult task.
With his signature short spears in had, Lie Xiao could still only barely pierce one of the bodies of the Fierce Shaman Warrior. Very soon, he was forcefully surrounded by the remaining eleven bodies; he immediately shouted out, “I admit defeat!”
“I admit defeat.”
“I admit defeat.”
Deity after Deity went onto the stage, only to subsequently take the initiative to admit defeat! A small portion of them refused to do so, and some even lost their lives.
“Contestant 121, Cang Qiu!” The man just called out was a seemingly ordinary Deity who wielded a long staff.
“Formidable.” However, once those spectating Deities watched him start fighting, they shouted out in shock.
That’s one formidable staff technique. It is very likely to be a secret skill of his. Xue Ying nodded as he kept on watching. It might not be a very dazzling technique, but it somehow doesn’t show any weaknesses, be it in terms of offense, defense, area of effect, killing moves, illusory moves and so on…
What he was witnessing was a complete set of secret skills, one created according to a grade two Deity Heart—the Space Deity Heart!
As soon as the Fierce Shaman Warrior realized it would not win a one-on-one fight, it immediately divided itself into twelve bodies, but even under their surround attack, Cang Qiu’s single staff could still reverse space itself and unleash an unpredictable power; it was like an uninterrupted stream of flowing water. As such, it didn’t take long after the first body was destroyed for the other eleven to follow to the same fate!
It only took half of the allocated time for Cang Qiu to destroy all of the Fierce Shaman Warrior’s bodies—it was a victory! He was actually the very first person to get through the Mountain Wu Star Field’s selection.
“Deity Cang Qiu has passed the Starfield Selections,” Patrol Master Guan shouted out from his throne high above. His expression suffered from a momentary jolt of happiness.
Cheers and screams echoed throughout the area, seemingly engulfing the entire place.
Before long, Cang Qiu left the battle platform led someplace else by the patrol master in charge of leading. There, he was brought to sit in a certain location.
After Cang Qiu, who had been the first to get through the selection, most Deities remained unable to pass the trial. Only occasionally would some Deity actually succeed in passing.
Once that red-haired man wearing a half-mask and who emitted heavy killing intent walked up the stage, the countless spectators began to notice his peculiarity.
“Such heavy killing intent.”
By now, Patrol Master Guan, General Tu, and the other World Deities all noticed this trait of his.
“A Deity with such heavy killing intent is bound to have some unique circumstances.”
“Look at his eyes. Zezeze. This one has my favor. He should be able to get through the selections.”
Patrol Master Guan and the others were chatting amongst themselves, humoring themselves by trying to deduce one’s combat power through various aspects such as their eyes. Clearly, this red-haired man’s killing intent was that dazzling.
On the battle platform.
That red-haired man who went by the moniker Blood Cloud began the fight with the Fierce Shaman Warrior. The man’s saber technique was truly cruel and tyrannical, and his killing intent as he begun to fight actually soared to a new high. Any ordinary Deity would most likely feel faint as soon as they came into contact with that killing intent of his. However, as a Deity warrior, Fierce Shaman Warrior was not affected at all by such things.
The battle was truly mournful and challenging, but after about half the sand in the hourglass trickled down, Blood Cloud successfully defeated all of warrior’s bodies to become the fifth participant to pass the Starfield Selections.
The order in which the participants came out to fight was actually not the same as their registration order. In fact, the registration order was used mainly for statistical purposes.
That was why, in spite of Xue Ying having registered quite early, his turn to battle had still yet to come.
“Contestant 1122, Seventh Mei Yu.” Once the commander in scarlet armor standing in front of the palace called out the next participant, the handsome teenager in white robes from before walked through the palace door. At that moment, all of the countless Deities focused their attention on him.
“That woman who’s seated high above right now is this guy’s subordinate!”
“This youngster must have some extraordinary background.”
“Let’s see how formidable he is.”
This piece of information made its way across the Deities rather fast. Not only that, this person referred to as ‘His Highness’ had actually come walking over in broad daylight, making him the the sole focus of the entire audience.
In fact, it wasn’t just the Deities who were looking forward to his battle; even those World Deities seated above the platform were quite excited to witness it.
“His Highness has entered.” Patrol Master Guan smiled toward his beautiful wife sitting to his side. “With that man’s combat power, there’s no way he won’t pass the selections.”
“Mn.” The beautiful woman nodded. “It’s only natural.”
“His Highness has an extraordinary temperament and seems to be the most calm from this period’s participants.” The black-robed old man’s first words were ones of praise. “He is able to remain calm even when watched by so many spectators. Somehow, he seems incapable of being perturbed by anything external to himself. To had reached this stage of cultivation…I truly admire him.”
Many of the other World Deities joined in with words of praise.
Though their flattering sentences were traced with suspicion, they were not entirely false either. After all, the gazes of all those countless Deities had some minute amounts of pressure, and with so many of them staring at once…a Transcendent would likely be unable to control their soul and simply explode. Even Deities would usually lose their composure. Some might go into a frenzy, while others would be overly excited; in any case, it was rare for one to not be affected in any way.
However, ‘His Highness’ had done exactly that!
“Begin!” The start of the battle was finally announced.
His Highness, Seventh Mei Yu, extended his left hand to grab onto a Deity sword with a snowy-white scabbard that suddenly appeared. He calmly watched the Fierce Shaman Warrior’s movements.
Hou~ In response, the Fierce Shaman Warrior let out a roar, though Seventh Mei Yu remained as calm as ever.
He pulled out his sword from its sheath.
The dazzling swordlight unleashed by this man was like a snowy-white horse racing through the sky.
Hua hua hua!
The figure of this man named Seventh Mei Yu was dream-like; as he walked around the Fierce Shaman Warrior, many sword rays flashed into existence, each strike stronger than the previous. Before long, countless flower petals could be seen fluttering gracefully in the sky.
Chi. The Fierce Shaman Warrior’s body suddenly exploded.
Only then did Seventh Mei Yu finally stop. He put his Deity sword back into its sheath with an expression as still as a lake’s surface.
At first, a blanket of silence covered the audience of countless Deities, before they finally erupted. Their cheers were so chaotic, they resounded throughout every last corner of the entire area.
What they witnessed was nothing short of unfathomable!
This was the one and only contestant so far to have completely annihilated the Fierce Shaman Warrior before it could even divide itself! The Fierce Shaman Warrior had been in its strongest, comative form, yet it was still defeated directly!
“Fifteen sword strikes…that was just fifteen sword strikes, but each one was stronger than the last. That last strike completely and utterly destroyed the Fierce Shaman Warrior.” Patrol Master Guan could not help but laugh. “It will probably take the Fierce Shaman Warrior more time to recover than this guy needed to kill it.”
The Fierce Shaman Warrior was made from unique material and was able to recover at an incredibly fast speed.
“He is indeed worthy of his fame, to have been able to defeat the Fierce Shaman Warrior in its strongest state.”
The World Deities all stepped in to offer praise.
Even Patrol Master Guan’s beautiful wife revealed a smile.
Getting through the selections was not an easy task to accomplish. All of the previous contestants had just barely managed to pass, but Seventh Mei Yu had actually gotten through them so easily. Those fifteen powerful powerful sword strikes were enough to directly defeat his opponent.
The battle was followed by another chain of consecutive defeats.
Yet the spectating Deities remained as excited as ever. Despite being mere onlookers, it didn’t stop their mouths from gossiping about His Highness Seventh Mei Yu, who had fought just a while ago!
“Contestant 1200! Dong Bo!” Another name left the mouth of the scarlet-armored commander, who was sitting next to the entrance of the palace.
