Chapter 829: Absolute Superiority
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
The three of them set off immediately after they spoke, soaring towards the direction of the Hundred Immortals Forest.
Over there, the 360 statues were still being contended over. Despite the powerful shockwaves born from the impact of the clashes, the immortal statues still stood strong and tall. There seemed to be a formless lightscreen blocking all the aftershocks for the immortal statues.
Not too long after, Qin Wentian, Jun Mengchen and Zi Qingxuan returned. Their eyes swept over the Hundred Immortals Forest, onto those who were cultivating and those who were fighting.
The demon-level geniuses were all currently cultivating silently, and there was no one who dared to disturb them.
"Senior, I was cultivating on that platform earlier." Jun Mengchen lifted his hand and pointed to a certain immortal statue. Qin Wentian's perception extended over and discovered a king aura radiating from within. It was truly very suited for Jun Mengchen to cultivate. It was no wonder why he chose this particular immortal statue.
However right now, the platform was already occupied. The person currently using it was none other than one of those experts with Blackpeak who wanted to kill Jun Mengchen and Zi Qingxuan earlier. The aura of this man was overwhelmingly strong, and was a genius from the Eastern Prefecture. Although the Deepflame Immortal King and Blackpeak weren't situated in the Eastern Prefecture. Considering the relationship between Deepflame Immortal King and the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, the Deepflame Immortal King had an extraordinary status and great influence within the sect. This was part of the reason why the Sage Child would arrange lodgings for Blackpeak earlier and hence, it wasn't strange for Blackpeak to know a few geniuses from the Eastern Prefecture.
"What should we do?"
Since Blackpeak led people to surround and kill you both, we don't need to talk about rules anymore. Kill that man." Qin Wentian's eyes flashed with sharpness. Jun Mengchen and Zi Qingxuan nodded in agreement as the three of them began to fly towards that stone platform with a speed akin to lightning.
Everywhere they passed by, those experts on the nearby platforms all turned and regarded them with trepidation in their eyes. If you wanted to cultivate here, you have to be extremely careful and prepare to defend against other's attack. Hence, the comprehension rate was much less efficient but there was no choice in this matter.
Very quickly, that man who was occupying Jun Mengchen's earlier platform felt a wave of cold intent gushing over. He abruptly halted his cultivation and opened his eyes. An aura of intense sharpness radiated from him as he inclined his head and stared in the air.
"Bzz!" A raging wind gusted by, and it seemed as though the silhouette of a wind roc was soaring through the skies. The entire body of this wind roc was razor sharp, akin to a supreme sword. Qin Wentian lifted his palms and blasted outwards as a terrifying sword beam that contained a unique might swept across this space, enveloping everything, locking down on his target.
"IMPUDENT!" That person roared in rage. Both his fists punched out in the air causing the space to tremble. The sword qi was smashed apart but Qin Wentian's earlier attack wasn't meant to kill, only to lock an opponent down. In that short instant of time, the three of them positioned themselves and descended down at the same time from three different directions.
Numerous terrifying ancient bells rumbled the sky, the reverberations of the bell chimes jolted that person so badly that his entire body was shaking. A fearsome killing intent drifted within the bell chimes and transformed into golden streams of calamitous lightning, smashing apart everything. That person groaned in misery, he only felt himself trembling uncontrollably as his body turned numb after he was hit by the golden lightning.
After which, Jun Mengchen gave a wild roar as a tempest manifested. That person was like a rootless weed floating around in the air, as he was flung into the air. He couldn't withstand the force within the tempest.
A divine falcon shone resplendently, tearing apart everything as it swooped downwards, crushing the body of that man into pieces. Fresh blood dyed the ground red and in an instant, a genius from the Eastern Prefecture was killed just like that.
This scene caused chills to arise in everyone's heart.
Such a violent killing was terrifying to the extreme. That poor man basically didn't even have a chance to flee, everything happened in an instant. It was as though they could all sense the despair that man felt before he died. It was like he didn't dare to believe that he would be killed off in such a domineering manner within such a short instant.
If he knew that this would happen, one could only wonder if that man regretted his actions to come along with Blackpeak and bully Jun Mengchen and Zi Qingxuan earlier. Who knew that the price of his actions was death. Back then they ganged up on Jun Mengchen first but now, Jun Mengchen gave no face at all and directly returned the favor paying it back in full.
And as expected those remaining participants who were still alive were all exceeding dangerous. If you offended someone but couldn't kill him off, you best prepare yourself for the dire consequences.
A terrifying killing intent erupted forth as a number of figures flew over. It was none other than Blackpeak and two of his friends. The three of them occupied three stone platforms and were all considered very powerful characters.
At this moment after Qin Wentian and his companions killed the man, they turned towards Blackpeak and the two others. Extreme sharpness flashed within their eyes as these six experts stared coldly at each other. A violent current of pressure permeated the air, a fight could break out at any moment.
"Such conduct, as expected of despicable men. Are you even qualified to stand here?" Blackpeak's countenance was ice cold. That man they killed was his friend. Not long ago, they came here together, ganging up to oust Jun Mengchen but in the blink of an eye, that friend of his was killed by Jun Mengchen and his companions ganging up together. One could very well imagine how bad his mood currently was. It felt like his face was being slapped harshly. What an irony.
"What a joke, are you even worthy to speak such words?" Qin Wentian spoke in cold arrogance. "In any case, three versus three. Just as well."
Qin Wentian's eyes flickered with provocation, filled with contempt for Blackpeak. Blackpeak's irises turned completely black as an extremely dangerous aura gushed forth from him.
"Let's play then." Blackpeak turned his gaze to behind Qin Wentian. The earlier three opponents which Jun Mengchen fought against also walked over, forming a party of six. Blackpeak continued, "Since you guys are so despicable, just leave your lives behind. KILL THEM ALL!"
Other than Blackpeak, there were a few other participants in the surroundings who continued observing with an air of watching a show. Jun Mengchen was the person which the Sage Child Ye Zixuan didn't invite to the banquet back then and Qin Wentian killed a subordinate of the Sage Child precisely because of his junior brother. Now, these three fellow sect members gathered and came back for revenge, wanting to seize back the stone platform. All things considered, how could Blackpeak ever spare them?
All six of them released their astral souls at the same moment. Yet Qin Wentian was as calm as ever as he spoke, "Mengchen, Qingxuan, kill them all directly."
As the sound of his voice faded, all three of their astral souls manifested in the air. An incomparably resplendent violet-gold glow illuminated the skies and in that instant, the hearts of all the geniuses there trembled violently.
Those who possess a violet-gold astral soul at the Celestial Phenomenon Realm were one in a billion yet these three in front of them actually all had one?
The three of them stood side by side, the violet-golden glow from their astral souls interweaved and cascaded down on them, making them resemble three war gods, giving off a feeling of absolute invincibility.
"KILL!" Blackpeak coldly roared. Momentarily, the six of them launched their fearsome attacks at the same time.
The violet-gold light intensified. A bell chime rang out as Qin Wentian directly rushed into the midst of the six of them. His body shimmered with resplendent light and in just an instant, numerous gigantic bells appeared around him, blasting out in rapid succession. The destructive calamitous lightning arced through the air, weaving a web of lightning that kept all six of the geniuses in place when an incomparably gargantuan bell manifested and blocked the energy from attacks of these six opponents.
Jun Mencheng howled in anger as a plate of king armor enveloped him, transforming him into a war king. A single roar by him could shake the heavens and earth as he dashed towards one of the six. Zi Qingxuan had great rapport with him, she similarly transformed into a divine falcon and circled the battlefield with a speed as fast as lightning.
The experts on the left and right of the one targeted by Jun Mengchen instantly acted in support, lashing out towards Jun Mengchen and Zi Qingxuan respectively. However at this moment, Jun Mengchen and Zi Qingxuan gave up their earlier target and focused fully on smashing through the opponents who lashed out at them while Qin Wentian transformed into a wind roc and zoomed towards the original target. With a lift of his palms, ancient bells circulating with golden calamitous lightning emitted a terrifying buzzing sound so deafening that the soul of his target trembled involuntarily.
This immortal-ranked bell-type innate technique was an extremely tyrannical one. But how could Qin Wentian manifest so many bells at once?
In just an instant, the numerous bells manifested directly smashed onto that target as the powerful destructive lightning completely ravaged his body, reaping his life away in the blink of an eye.
Blackpeak and the other two also stepped forth, yet Qin Wentian didn't even bothered to glance at them. He lifted his palms and blasted backwards, only to see a countless number of violet-golden ancient bells covering the skies. The chimes from these bell were like the melody of annihilation, constantly reverberating the air.
Jun Mengchen and Zi Qingxuan both domineeringly suppressed their opponents. Especially Jun Mengchen who was extremely enraged at this moment, a boundless rainbow-colored light radiated from him as the humiliation he felt before all turned into the flames of rage. Each of his attacks could tremble the skies and earth and was akin to an indomitable war god which nothing could stop. His opponent completely had no way to resist his attacks.
"DIE!" With a thunderous boom, Jun Mengchen directly killed his opponent but Blackpeak and the two others hadn't even managed to break through Qin Wentian's attacks. With ancient bells circulating around him and a violet-gold astral soul enveloping him, every single one of Qin Wentian's attack filled them with the sense of death. Even supreme geniuses like Blackpeak didn't dare to risk it by fighting Qin Wentian in close combat.
"This..." The eyes of the other geniuses in the surroundings narrowed as their hearts actually trembled at the power of these three fellow sect members. Six supreme geniuses against three and the result was that two of the six had already fallen in the blink of an eye. In addition, after Jun Mengchen slew his opponent, he went over to aid Zi Qingxuan and in just another instant, the two of them joined forces, effortlessly killing the other target.
A situation where six versus three suddenly became three versus three. Those three geniuses who once fought with Jun Mengchen were already dead. In fact, them joining this battle proved to be of no effect at all.
Upon seeing Jun Mengchen and Zi Qingxuan moving towards them, Blackpeak and his two companions retreated unceasingly while launching attacks. Their expressions were all extremely heavy as they stared with hatred at Qin Wentian.
What sort of good fortune did this man experience? Why was the bell-type innate technique he comprehended so much stronger compared to the other immortal-ranked techniques of theirs? Each of his ancient bells contained a marvelous energy in them and Qin Wentian seemed to be able to manifest an endless number of bells from a single attack. When placed in the Eastern Sage Cliff Mountain Range, his combat prowess was at a level where only a very few could fight directly against him.
And if this was the case, especially so with the aid of Jun Mengchen and Zi Qingxuan who had vanquished their targets, Blackpeak and the two others basically had no way to win against them. Before this, Qin Wentian alone could already hold the attacks from all three of them back. How can they even fight against him now?
