Chapter 812: Powerful
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Xiao Hong's strength was extremely strong. He appeared in the later batches of participants and the instant he acted, he completely plundered away the battle qi of the earlier participants making it so that his battle halo had accumulated to 60,000 meters in just a short period of time. In addition, he didn't name his sect or clan when he was registering, there was both a chance he might be from a mysterious power or he was an unaffiliated cultivator. If it was the latter, on the contrary, it would be even more terrifying.
A majority of those geniuses who appeared here were all from major sects or clans. The reason was very simple, for those with outstanding talent, they would be recognized since a young age and then recruited and heavily nurtured with resources and guidance from experts, teaching them tyrannical cultivation arts and techniques, helping them to swiftly mature.
Hence, the difficulty of becoming strong was higher for those who matured on their own but similarly, if one depended on no one but themselves and could grow to an extent equal to or surpassing those demon-level characters nurtured by the major powers, that person would be immeasurable and definitely extremely dangerous.
The Idlecloud Immortal King also attached a very high importance to Xiao Hong, placing him on the second tier of his judgement. As for Qin Wentian, he was placed on the third tier instead and from this, one could see how highly he valued Xiao Hong.
The instant Qin Wentian's eyes landed on Xiao Hong, Xiao Hong sensed it and turned over to him. Both his depthless and black eyes flashed with a dazzling light.
Among fourth-level ascendants, there were three outstanding characters on the Cloudheaven Arena: Zhuge Yue, Xiao Hong and Qin Wentian.
Xiao Hong had a dazzling battle halo of 60,000 meters. Qin Wentian and Zhuge Yue also weren't to be outdone, all three of them hadn't moved against each other yet but it didn't mean they didn't have the intention to in their hearts. Maybe, their ultimate goal was to defeat each other and accumulate enough battle qi to the point where their halos reached the size of 100,000 meters.
Hence when Qin Wentian and Xiao Hong locked gazes, they could clearly feel the battle intent in each other's hearts. Xiao Hong soared through the air, moving towards the platform Qin Wentian was at. And although around him there were still other opponents with impressive-sized battle halos, he only had eyes for Qin Wentian alone. It felt as though the others didn't exist.
Qin Wentian stared straight at Xiao Hong, both their battle halos emitted a terrifying roaring sound as though mirroring the battle intents of their owners.
At this instant, countless people inclined their heads, their hearts pounding as they stared at this scene.
Was Qin Wentian and Xiao Hong going to enter combat?
Both of them were dazzling geniuses with 60,000 meter battle halos. If a grand battle occurred between them, who would be the victor?
This fight truly fills the hearts of people with anticipation!
Below the Cloudheaven Arena, countless rumbling cheers already resounded out from the spectator stands. This caused the participants on the other battle platforms to start, "What happened?"
"Over there, Qin Wentian versus Xiao Hong." Someone replied. After which, numerous gazes shot over as their hearts clenched.
Finally, a battle of the strong against the strong? Neither of these two could afford to lose because the moment they lost, they had to start to reaccumulate battle qi to expand their battle halos from zero.
Xiao Hong arrived at the platform Qin Wentian was on, choosing to remain in the air as a fearsome battle intent radiated from him. The light from his battle halo was so bright that it illuminated the entire space, emitting terrifying noises, causing a layer of battle light to envelop his body.
"Xiao Hong took the initiative to challenge Qin Wentian?" The eyes of the crowd flickered. They didn't see Qin Wentian's earlier gaze so they all thought Xiao Hong was the one who initiated the battle.
Only to see that at this moment, a terrifying layer of runic light revolved protectively around Qin Wentian as dazzling runic inscriptions floated around him, materializing into a fiendgod armor.
Xiao Hong's eyes flickered with his will to battle. With a wave of his hand, astral light flashed as numerous golden arms shimmering with runic light appeared in the air. This was a constellation condensed by Xiao Hong and the crowd had witnessed him using it to great effect during his battles. His degree of control over it was extremely terrifying.
Astral light continued to flash as Xiao Hong's second constellation appeared. A deep violet-black light circulated frenziedly as numerous devilish hooks appeared. The gleam of light radiating forth from these hooks caused the hearts of people to shiver.
"GO!" Both Qin Wentian and Xiao Hong didn't exchange any words, opting to fight directly instead. Xiao Hong blasted out his attacks as the light from his constellation cascaded downwards, enveloping this space. A countless number of golden arms covered the skies, grabbing towards Qin Wentian. Before this, all his opponents that were grabbed by him all failed to break free. They couldn't even move and could only await death as their lives were ripped away by those devilish hooks.
"RUMBLE!" Qin Wentian's physique expanded as the armor covering him grew as well. In an instant, he reached the height of 330 meters and resembled a terrifying giant. He lifted his head staring at Xiao Hong in their air, the look in his eyes striking fear in the hearts of those who saw it.
"Is this...his true strength?" When the crowd saw Qin Wentian's size, they all could faintly sense that these demon-level characters seemed to be going all out.
A 330 meters tall body circulating with resplendent runic light. At this moment, Qin Wentian was akin to a true fiendgod, exuding imposing might.
The golden arms blotting out the sky smashed over, grabbing his body yet those golden arms had completely no way to bind Qin Wentian's movements.
Xiao Hong's countenance didn't change. The countless number of golden arms also expanded, causing the light radiating from them to tower into the skies. This time, he no longer planned to bind Qin Wentian, instead, the countless arms were blasting out with indomitable might, wanting to crush him in a head-on fight.
"BOOM!" A thunderous explosive noise boomed. Qin Wentian's size grew even larger, to 1,500 meters now. His height now could already match Xiao Hong who was standing in the air. And when the attacks from the countless golden arms blasted into Qin Wentian, they were all completely useless unable to break through his defense. The protective light circulating around the fiendgod armor was exceedingly terrifying.
"Is that all you got?" Qin Wentian inclined his head and spoke to Xiao Hong in the air. His defense was too insane. The principles of the body refinement method he obtained from the Driftsnow Master could be incorporated into his Fiendgod Body Refinement Art. As long as he stepped into the immortal-foundation realm, as long as his cultivation with the Fiendgod Body Refinement Art didn't fall behind, his physique would be even more fearsome compared to ordinary fiendgods. It would just be like an immortal-ranked weapon.
And right now although he was only still at the Ceelstial Phenomenon Realm, just with his attainments in runic inscriptions, his cultivation of the Fiendgod Body Refinement Art as well as the might granted to him from the Fiendgod Heavenly Suppression Art, his fleshly defense alone was already so strong to an inconceivable extent. Xiao Hong's Golden Arm Constellation was a control-type constellation used mainly to bind and restrict people. Hence, its attacking might couldn't be considered powerful. This was why it had no way to break through the defense of Qin Wentian's current 1,500 meters tall physique.
Xiao Hong's countenance stiffened, turning cold when he heard Qin Wentian's words. Towering violet-black devil clouds flooded the air as a faint image of a devil king appeared behind his back. The clouds covered the sun completely, casting their gloomy shadow on the battle platforms down below.
Swishing sounds echoed as the devilish hooks shot through the air. Among them, there was one that transformed into 1,000 meters, smashing towards Qin Wentian wanting to tear him apart. If this devilish hook were to hit anyone, they would certainly die in an instant from the impact.
At this moment, Qin Wentian's Annihilative Suppression Constellation appeared, instantly exuding an immense torrential pressure that enveloped everything in the area. Countless gigantic figures of suppression also manifested, all of them standing tall in the air.
With a single punch, many of these suppression figures erupted outwards. That fearsome devilish hook was forcibly halted by that suppressive might. The numerous figures of suppression radiated balls of light which congregated together before sweeping out with devastating force. Qin Wentian's strength, combined together with his Annihilative Suppression Constellation and the might from the Fiendgod Heavenly Suppression Art, the power he erupted with could shake even the heavens.
Every inch of space it passed, was completely eradicated.
"RUMBLE!~" The devilish hook was directly smashed apart. Qin Wentian with his imposing figure, dashed towards Xiao Hong causing Xiao Hong's expression to turn heavy. His constellation in the sky flared with a terrifying brilliance, controlling all the devilish hooks that were manifested in the air.
Qin Wentian's immense figure stomped on the battle platform, causing it to shake from the impact. He soared into the air, the terrifying light circulating around his entire body caused whistling sounds to ring out in the air. Fearsome roars emitted from his battle halos as Qin Wentian blasted out with his palms, annihilating the sky and earth, simply unobstructable.
At this instant, the figures of suppression shimmering with dazzling runic light combined their suppressive might with Qin Wentian's palm strike, directly aiming for the head of the devil king behind Xiao Hong. Right now, Xiao Hong had three heads and six arms, his entire body had the devilish hooks protruding out as he madly defended against the incoming attack. However, the suppressive might showed no mercy, unceasingly destroying his defenses.
Finally, Qin Wentian's palm slammed into the tiny figure of Xiao Hong. The impact made his body tremble violently as he coughed out blood.
"ROAR!" The battle halo around Qin Wentian directly plundered away the battle qi from Xiao Hong as Xiao Hong was flung by the impact through the air, travelling tens of miles in the blink of an eye before vanishing from sight into the horizon.
A 120,000 meter battle halo circulated around Qin Wentian, emitting startling roaring noises. This 1,500 meter figure stood proudly in the air akin to an ancient supreme divinity of war, undefeated, like an invincible existence.
"How powerful..." The hearts of the crowd trembled. This was what was called a real battle. Although Xiao Hong was strong, he wasn't strong enough to be Qin Wentian's opponent. Seems like before this, Qin Wentian was just merely playing around, there's no one who could force his strength out. But at this moment, when he truly exhibited his radiance as well as his overwhelming strength that could annihilate everything, it's almost a given that Qin Wentian would be able to rank within the top three during this selection test!
