Chapter 846: Complete Annihilation
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Right from the start, Qin Wentian hadn't gone all out in battle. After all to him, the Sage Devil Gorge was merely a location to temper himself and it was already enough for him to pass this test. Since there was no good fortune that could be obtained, there was no need to risk his life.
Hence, at the start when he first entered the gorge, he killed a disciple and didn't bother to clean up the body simply because he hoped the threat it represented was sufficient to stop the other disciples from disturbing him. But evidently he was wrong. The things that happened afterwards were all completely out of his anticipation and the disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect came in unending waves, all seeking to kill him. If it wasn't for his many trump cards and extraordinary combat prowess, he would have already died here long ago.
Until the point where Xia Hou led the disciples of the Eastern Sage Sect to encircle him and even using the ridiculous reason saying that his temperament was too brazen. Qin Wentian was completely enraged. Hence, he started to take the path of the hunter but even so, although he used that to vent his anger, he didn't sink into complete madness.
He only wanted Xia Hou to pay a price. For those who currently stood at the peak tier of those disciples, they wouldn't display all their trump cards so easily until they met a level of danger beyond them. That's only to be expected.
But who would have thought that the disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect wouldn't give up unless he's dead. They killed so many who chose to follow him, and even before he had any time to react, the four people at the forefront were already killed by that energy wave. This ignited his anger completely, causing him to truly sink into a state of madness. Not only for him, those from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect were also in a frenzy and it appeared that they would spare no expense in order to take his life.
Since that was the case, the only solution out is to completely annihilate all of them. This was the only way he could protect himself and those who chose to follow him.
At this moment, even his bloodline protection ability was unleashed. The power of his blood intensified to the limits. That primordial demon king resembled Qin Wentian, protectively enveloping around him. Despite the overwhelming power of the disciples, they had no way to break through this bloodline protection.
Qin Wentian's roar shook the hearts of the others. The instant he inclined his head, that primordial demon king mirrored his actions. The terrifying demonic pupils of the demon king penetrated through the eyes of the disciples, piercing into their hearts, causing their hearts to tremble.
The Qin Wentian before this was already terrifying enough. But now, when this incomparably violent blood demon appeared, an unfathomably baleful demonic qi permeated the air. This caused people to feel the impulse to grovel before it, and tremble with fear born from the depth of their souls.
"KILL!" Qin Wentian roared. He stretched out his gigantic palms, aiming for the elite disciple who manifested the black hole. His gigantic pams were covered by a layer of demonic light and shot straight for the elite disciple who had an expression of terror on his face. The elite disciple unleashed the power of his constellation to the limits, seeking to destroy everything, causing the crimson glow from his devil flower to intensify.
"BANG!" The Blood Devil Flower was directly destroyed. Qin Wentian's palm imprint smashed into the blood-colored devil flower. The bloody palms of the demon king then shot out as though it was corporeal, he grabbed the elited disciple just like someone would grab an insect, securely in his hands.
"RELEASE ME!" That elite disciple roared madly. His entire body trembled violently. At this instant, death was so near to him. It felt like it could arrive at any second.
His eyes stared at Qin Wentian, only to see blood-colored pupils that could penetrate the hearts of people staring right back at him.
"BOOM!" The demonic palm smashed down as blood spluttered out. That elite disciple was directly smashed into powder, his soul scattered - he couldn't even withstand a single strike.
Around Qin Wentian, those other participants were frenziedly attacking as well, killing several other disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect. Before this, the disciples went all out, sparing no expense to kill Qin Wentian. Only to discover that their attacks could not break through the bloodline protection of the demon king. It actually gave the other participants a chance to counterattack so swiftly that the disciples didn't even have the chance to block and could only wait to be killed.
In addition, their strongest member - that elite disciple - had already died, killed by Qin Wentian with a single strike.
The ending of this battle seemed to have already been destined. The fifty-plus disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect actually lost so grievously. How ridiculous was this?
After that attack, everyone seemed to pause unconsciously, staring at the large 500 meter body of Qin Wentian that resembled a descendant of a primordial demon king. Looks of panic and trepidation flashed in the disciples eyes, how many kinds of energy did Qin Wentian have? Sometimes his battle qi would tower into the skies, and a battle halo would revolve around him making him seem like an invincible war king. Sometimes, divine light would circulate around him, able to suppress and annihilate everything. And now, he was like a demon king that hailed from the primordial era. It was too terrifying.
Even those participants who chose to follow Qin Wentian were stunned into complete speechlessness. They had never met someone on the same level as them that was this tyrannical. The level of strength he had shown should have also surpassed the peak of what was possible right? They completely had no way to imagine an existence who could defeat Qin Wentian with the same cultivation level.
They suddenly realized that maybe for this immortal banquet organized by the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect, the person in front of them may very well be one of the top three rankers.
Not only did they realize it, those disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect who were still alive also felt this way. Right now, there was only regret in their hearts. Why did they have to try so hard to kill this man? If they allowed him to go free, such a scenario wouldn't have occurred at all - the disciples of their sect wouldn't face the threat of complete annihilation.
It was unknown who it was that suddenly roared. The disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect instantly came to their senses and fled in different directions. They no longer wanted to continue fighting, that would only be a path that lead to death. Right now, only fleeing and regrouping with the other disciples would give them a chance to survive.
"ROAR!" A terrifying demonic beast howl rent the air. Qin Wentian stomped the ground and blasted forth with his palms. Gigantic, terrifying demonic palm imprints slammed out with indomitable force, annihilating anything caught in their paths.
"BOOM, BOOM, BOOM..." The explosive sounds rose and fell in succession continuously. Each thunderous boom represented the death of a disciple and right now before Qin Wentian, there was no one who could withstand a single strike from him.
He was too powerful. Right now, Qin Wentian was completely in a different class from them. They were of different levels.
The other disciples fled for their lives madly, their faces filled with terror and panic as their hearts pounded incessantly. Death was too near to them.
"Don't even think about leaving." A demonic-sounding voice drifted over. The thunderous explosive sounds continued unceasingly and the earth below was all ripped apart. There were a few disciples flying away together but they instantly sensed a terrifying beam of demonic light just behind their backs. When they turned, they were so frightened that even their souls almost escaped from their bodies, as their hearts were pounding so violently that they threatened to leap out from their chests.
Behind them, that demon king seemed to have separated itself from Qin Wentian's body and was standing right behind them. The size of this demon was as imposing and large as Qin Wentian and their countenances were eerily similar.
Two demonic arms directly stretched over, the disciples were so frightened that they screamed and closed their eyes in fright. Right now, despair was the only emotion they were feeling.
The demonic palms smashed their bodies, this display of tyranny was seemingly effortless. Naturally, this was also because the disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect had already lost their wills to fight. They basically didn't even dare to fight and were only seeking to flee as far as they can from this place. If they are caught, it meant certain death.
"BOOM, BOOM, BOOM!" Fissures appeared unceasingly, as more and more disciples died. Finally, those demonic palms smashed apart the last disciple as this battle finally concluded.
Several experts had also died in Qin Wentian's group but the price they paid was worth it, completely annihilating a group of fifty-plus fifth-level ascendants, with no survivors. This was basically an extremely terrifying feat.
The silhouettes of the other participants flickered as they appeared beside Qin Wentian. They stared at the corpses of the disciples, as well as the terrifying fissures on the ground as a sense of surrealism hit them. A fifth-level ascendant was actually capable of achieving such heaven-shaking and earth-shattering power!
Zi Qingxuan's beautiful eyes flickered as she stared at Qin Wentian. She was shocked by Qin Wentian's combat prowess as well. Despite the fact that she has already placed Qin Wentian on a very high pedestal, she had still underestimated his power. Qin Wentian was like someone with no weakness, strong to the peak in all aspects of combat. Fighting against Qin Wentian would be like fighting against a god of slaughter.
The other participants opened and closed their mouths as though wanting to say something, but they didn't know what to say. They could all sense that Qin Wentian was someone on a completely different level than them. They didn't even feel it was appropriate by calling out 'Brother Qin' anymore.
The bloodline protection of Qin Wentian gradually faded as his berserk aura gradually calmed as well. His 500 meter body returned to normal as he replaced his torn and tattered clothing. The runic glow circulating around his body hadn't faded yet as he turned and spoke dejectedly to the other participants. "There were several brothers who fell in this battle. I've let them down."
"Brother Qin has already done enough. If it wasn't for you, we would have already died here. This battle's victory could be said to have been achieved by Brother Qin alone." Somebody sighed. These weren't words of politeness but spoken from the depths of his heart.
"That's right, we followed you into battle willingly. Brother Qin, you don't owe us anything. You could have effortlessly left by yourself if you so wished, but you actually fought all of them for the sake of us, willing to descend into a state of madness. All of us aren't blind, how can we not be able to see this? The death of those brothers earlier were nothing but an accident. Brother Qin simply had no way to rescue them under those circumstances."
The other participants all spoke, their eyes filled with respect and reverence for Qin Wentian. Even leaving aside his prowess, just based on his character that showed he was willing to fight for them all, was already sufficient to make them feel respect. In fact, there was completely no need at all for Qin Wentian to fight in such a crazed manner, unleashing a might that could tear the sky asunder, completely annihilating the disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect.
"Regretfully, there were brothers who still died." Qin Wentian sighed, turning his gaze on the other battles in this location. Their battle didn't attract too much attention because there were groups of different cultivation levels fighting everywhere in this location. There was simply no time for them to pay attention to the combat of others.
The heaven-shaking, earth-shattering battles between the other participants and disciples continued, but the number of people has already dwindled a lot. It was unknown how many geniuses would fall here before this all ended!
