Qin Wentian turned his gaze onto Leng Yi as he calmly spoke, "Make way."
"On the way here, I tried my best to lure you to the Driftsnow City. Now you want to leave as soon as you arrive? Seems like your alertness is truly excellent but do you think it's possible for you to leave?" Numerous gigantic flower petals appeared behind Leng Yi, exuding a unique fragrance, causing one to feel a bout of drowsiness as though they were about to fall asleep any second.
"What benefits are there if you capture me?" Qin Wentian asked.
"The price on your head is extremely high. No matter if you are captured alive or dead, the bounty hunter will be able to exchange you for three immortal-ranked weapons." Leng Yi spoke. Qin Wentian narrowed his eyes as cold light flickered within. How rich were the rewards offered? To think that the Jiangling Country was willing to put up such a high price on his head. This should be because the Jiang Clan was a peak power in the Cloud Prefecture despite the fact that he had no prior grudge with the Jiangling Country.
In the eyes of the Jiangling King, he might as well capture Qin Wentian to please the Jiang Clan.
"Do it quicker and directly kill him, we will bring his corpse back. This place is too conspicuous for my liking. When we have collected the bounty, everything would be fine then." A young man coldly spoke as a fearsome saber glow surrounded him. Even his eyes were like icy sabers emanating a cold silvery light.
"Do it." Leng Yi nodded. Her companions stepped closer, tightening the circle. Evidently, they didn't wished to attract too much attention. This location was very close to the Driftsnow City, they were worried that there would be others who recognized Qin Wentian. And the moment a powerful expert appeared, even if they managed to kill Qin Wentian, his corpse wouldn't belong to them.
Hence, they had to kill Qin Wentian before any commotion is caused. Leng Yi initially still planned to lure Qin Wentian to the City Lord Manor of the Driftsnow City but sadly, Qin Wentian's vigilance was too high and wanted to split up with them. In that case, they had no choice but to act.
"Don't tell me that the order of arrest didn't include more details? With your little bit of strength, are you all courting death?" Qin Wentian swept his gaze over to everyone as the aura of a third-level Celestial Phenomenon Ascendant gushed forth. His constellation flashed as a sword qi tempest instantly manifested with his Sword Slaughter Constellation being unleashed, enveloping this entire space. That boundless, terrifying sword might had Qin Wentian at the center, causing those who were surrounding him to feel fear and trepidation in their hearts.
"Defend first before we attack." Leng Yi commanded. She indeed had no idea of Qin Wentian's actual strength. She only heard that Qin Wentian had snuck in an attack on a young master of the Jiang Clan, but she didn't know the exact details of the situation. But in any case, how could the Jiang Clan release info that there were even immortal-ranked experts present when Qin Wentian attacked Jiang Kuang? Wouldn't that be smacking their own faces?
The attackers all released their own constellation but at this moment, Qin Wentian's Sword Slaughter Constellation exuded boundless sword light as numerous incarnations of him appeared. Their palms shimmered with resplendent sword-type runic lights, blasting out in all directions, launching an attack towards his attackers.
Leng Yi was naturally one of his targets. Upon seeing that overwhelming suppressive sword might, her countenance drastically changed as she explosively retreated. Was this really the strength of a third-level ascendant? How could he erupt forth with such power?
The Star-Seizing palm imprints grew increasingly larger as they shot out and neared. Leng Yi screamed for mercy, "Brother Qin, please show mercy!"
However, how could Qin Wentian be bothered about her? That terrifying palm strike continued on, smashing upon Leng Yi's body, directly crushing her into paste. There was no hesitation on his part at all. This woman was too scheming and had a venomous heart. How would he ever show mercy?
Not only for Leng Yi. At this instant, all those attackers were encountering tyrannical suppression. Rumbling explosive sounds rang out, the cultivation bases of these people were at the second to fifth level of the Celestial Phenomenon Realm. Sadly, there were no exceptions, they were all blasted to death by Qin Wentian's palm strikes.
After absorbing and refining the Sky Demon Oracle Bone through the Body Refinement Art, Qin Wentian's physique grew stronger and stronger, resembling a true fiendgod. Just his bodily defense alone was extremely terrifying, and in addition to that, his innate techniques like the Fiendgod Heavenly Suppression Art as well as other tyrannical methods, integrating the fusion of his true intents, and his depth of comprehension towards innate techniques, his combat prowess had risen to a terrifying level despite him only being at the third level of Celestial Phenomenon. At the very least, he could kill ordinary fifth-level ascendants with a single smack of his palms. Just like what was happening now.
The commotion instantly attracted the attention of others below. These people inclined their heads, staring at the young man in the air as they silently mused what terrifying combat prowess this young man had. It was a complete annihilation, directly eradicating those surrounding him with a single strike.
However, they only saw Qin Wentian immediately leaving, heading off in the direction of the Driftsnow City.
He already felt that Leng Yi was setting him up for something before this, it was only he didn't know about the order of arrest issued for him. As to why he didn't mind traveling together with Leng Yi, it was because given his strength, there was basically no need for him to worry. If Leng Yi truly wanted to act against him, he would retaliate swiftly with no hesitation, even if he had to kill her.
The Driftsnow City was one of the three great main cities of the Jiangling Country. Right now, it's status could only be considered second or third because this city, is known to be a weaponized city. Many years ago, the Driftsnow City was prosperous and extremely famous. Its name wasn't merely contained within a country but was circulated around an entire prefecture. However, because of the passing of time, the immortal spirit of the Driftsnow City itself gradually turned silent and disappeared. This made the city slowly edged out of the vision of the Cloud Prefecture but no matter what, it could still be considered one of the most prosperous locations within the Jiangling Country.
Qin Wentian stood at the bottom of the stairway leading up to the city as he lifted his head to survey it. This vast ancient city was constructed above sea level, and the ten thousand-meter walls made an individual seem small and inconsequential when they stood underneath them. Each of the eighteen divine weapons on the city walls were incomparably gigantic in stature, there was a saber, spear, sword, halberd... all embedded right at the top of the walls, radiating an imposing aura filled with the vicissitudes of time.
The demon sword strapped on Qin Wentian's back hummed softly, vibrating as though it was resonating with something. Streams of sharp qi bore down on Qin Wentian, or more accurately, they were all pressing down onto the demon sword on his back. This caused Qin Wentian's eyes to flash as he turned his attention to the eighteen divine weapons.
However, at this moment, the resonance from the demon sword turned quiet as though nothing out of the ordinary had ever happened. Yet, the eighteen divine weapons embedded at the top of the walls suddenly radiated a wall of light. At this instant, on top of the city wall, a boundless divine glow flashed, streaking upwards to the skies.
Outside the Driftsnow City, countless silhouettes halted their steps as their gazes were all locked upon the eighteen divine weapons on the city walls. Their eyes flashed with light as their gazes turned sharp. They all silently mused, "The eighteen divine weapons had another reaction again? Seems like the legend of the Driftsnow City is definitely real."
"Now the wind and clouds are flooding the Driftsnow City, I wonder how many experts from major powers in the Cloud Prefecture would show up because of that legend. If that legend is true and one could use an entire city as a divine weapon, how terrifying is this concept?" Someone mused.
And at this moment, a casual looking young man with a sword strapped behind his back, stepped on the stairs that led upwards to the Driftsnow City. As the city gates opened, he entered the city itself.
The instant Qin Wentian entered, he immediately sensed a majestic and archaic air. The foundations of this city were countless times deeper compared to the Worryfree City and the buildings here were all made from unique and special, top-graded materials. Attacks from ordinary experts would definitely be unable to damage it.
After all within such a large city, there would definitely be occasional conflicts within. If the residents want to have a peaceful life, they naturally would fortify their homes to protect against attacks from cultivators.
Hence, the residences here were all constructed in a manner similar to divine weapons, they were incredibly tough and some even had the power to attack. These were all constructed by divine inscriptionists and usually the stronger someone was, the more fortified their residence would be.
Slowly moving on the streets of the Driftsnow City, countless experts were all around him. He could clearly sense the difference of the people here and the Worryfree City. There were many who were lazy and languid over there but here, experts were all exuding their brilliance to dazzle people.
In the air, a row of experts soared past, and there were quite a few among them who had a corona of immortal light. This made the crowd sighed in admiration, "Immortal glow, those must be immortal-foundation ranked experts."
"They seemed to be experts from the War Immortal Palace, they had even sent immortals over this time." The people on the streets whispered, causing Qin Wentian's heart to be stirred slightly. Back then the power the old Sacred Emperor of the Sacred Royal Region had joined was precisely the War Immortal Palace. It should be considered quite a large power in the Jiangling Country. He didn't expect that he would encounter them here.
However, the experts of the War Immortal Palace didn't know who Qin Wentian was. Even if they knew, Qin Wentian right now had already changed his features. There was no way there would be anyone that can recognize him.
Qin Wentian continued his way forward, and would occasionally see experts with coronas of immortal light around them. This indicated that these people were immortals.
"Truly the experts here are as common as the clouds. In addition, the word out in the streets is that there are many major powers who would be sending their forces over as well." Qin Wentian stepped into the depths of the Driftsnow City and walked for quite a bit of time before coming across a tea house. Over here, there were many enjoying their tea, and one among them was clearly radiating immortal light. The others were all looking at that person with respect and reverence on their faces!
