Chapter 840: One Against All
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian's 100 meter physique trembled the hearts of people. Upon Xia Hou seeing him lifting his hands and effortlessly destroying two core disciples, he instantly understood that the strength of this person was above that of elite disciples. Qin Wentian was someone that could instantly become an elite disciple the moment he joined the sect and in fact, he might even have the opportunity to become a Sage Child character.
However right now given how things stand, they had to kill this man no matter what it took. Qin Wentian right now was like a wild horse that was out of control, it's too difficult to control it, and was extremely dangerous. They had to kill it directly now.
"RUMBLE!" A gigantic stream of Xuanwu Force blasted towards Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian's 100 meter physique instantly punched out causing astral light to illuminate the skies, penetrating through space, and shimmering with runic light that contained a towering might within, directly shattering his opponent's attack.
Both his hands erupted forth once more, manifesting Grand Nihility Palm Imprints that engulfed the skies, directly smashing towards the two remaining core disciples. Both of the core disciples had terror on their faces as they used the entirety of strength they possessed to resist. However, when attacks were so strong that they reached a certain level, they could directly eradicate all that obstructed them. Their bodies exploded as they died on the spot. Qin Wentian was like an enraged war god, slaughtering the masses.
"Bzz!" A rising sun sharp sword of incineration slashed over, shimmering with sunlight, directly shooting towards Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian opened his mouth wide and spat, and a moment later, numerous ancient bells actually manifested and congregated into an incomparably terrifying gigantic war bell. With a wave of his hands, the bell chimes reverberated through the air, containing a suppressive might within as the bell slammed into the gigantic rising sun sword, shattering it into pieces.
The two elite disciples retreated, lengthening the distance between them and Qin Wentian. The strength of Qin Wentian, who had transformed into a giant, contained too much threat and was extremely fearsome. Once they were hit by any of his attacks, they would definitely be heavily injured or even die. They naturally had to be more cautious.
From afar, there were more silhouettes arriving one after another. Qin Wentian stared at the newcomers, elite disciples, core disciples and external disciples that unceasingly appeared here. Evidently, the summons issued earlier was an extremely important one that made all those participating in the hunting exercise to gather here.
"GU LIUFENG, RUN!" Qin Wentian shouted. And after which he turned and prepared to soar away.
"Swish!" A raging wind gusted as Xia Hou directly appeared in front of him, blocking his path. Xia Hou stood with his hands behind his back and stared at Qin Wentian, "Given how brazen you are, trampling on the prestige of our sect and slaughtering our disciples. Do you think you can still leave here alive?"
"Are you planning to break the rules?" Qin Wentian coldly asked.
"I'm the supervisor of the Sage Devil Gorge. In addition, since I won't act against you personally, that naturally couldn't be considered as me breaking the rules." Xia Hou replied coldly. The experts who just arrived started to fan out around Qin Wentian, trapping him in a circle.
"Bzz~" A dazzling light flashed as the immortal-ranked spear he forged back then in the Driftsnow City appeared in his hands. The spear shimmered with terrifying immortal light and Qin Wentian pointed it straight at Xia Hou. "If you continue to block my way, I will use this immortal-ranked weapon to kill you. And if there are experts of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect investigating the reason why, I will ask them personally whether you have broken the rules or not."
Qin Wentian spoke as he walked towards Xia Hou, the long spear in his hands expanded unceasingly, becoming tens of meters long, and shimmered with fearsome immortal light as though he was prepared to obliterate anything that obstructed his path.
Xia Hou only felt a sense of crisis enveloping him. His expression turned ashen, he didn't expect that a participant would actually take out an immortal-ranked weapon to threaten him. How audacious!
"Scram the fuck out of my way!" Qin Wentian roared. Xia Hou stared intently at Qin Wentian but he still eventually opened up a path. It wasn't that he feared Qin Wentian in combat, but only if Qin Wentian truly used an immortal weapon to slaughter a path out, it would surely blow things out of proportion. At that time when the truth comes to light, he who is a supervisor, wouldn't be able to escape censure. Despite his status as an elite disciple, he would still be put to death as per the rules of the sect.
Qin Wentian kept the spear and continued on his way, yet he only saw there were experts who continued to encircle him. All these were disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect.
"RUMBLE!" A boundless battle light flashed, as a fearsome battle intent radiated out from Qin Wentian's gigantic body. The battle qi from him grew increasingly fearsome as the battle might he emanated soared up to the skies. This was him activating the second level of the Battle Art which caused his strength to increase explosively.
"WHO DARES TO OBSTRUCT ME?!" Qin Wentian blasted out as a gigantic calamitous ancient bell manifested with an explosive sound. With the augmentation of the Fiendgod Heavenly Suppression Art, there was a suppressive might contained within the majestic gigantic ancient bell. The light from his constellation cascaded down on it as divine golden rays shot out. Those who were hit by the ancient bell were directly crushed to death and the suppressive might was so powerful that a few external disciples in the surroundings died after being hit by the rays of calamitous light.
Qin Wentian seemed to grow stronger as the battle progressed!
The feeling Qin Wentian gave off, was like he was filled with endless possibilities. The stronger his opponents are, the stronger he would become, standing tall against his enemies.
Xia Hou felt a strong unease in his heart when he saw how powerful Qin Wentian was. If so many fifth-level ascendants couldn't even kill Qin Wentian despite banding together, allowing him to flee scot-free, the consequences would be extremely terrifying given how Qin Wentian would surely leave with hatred and the flames of wanting to take revenge in his heart. If this caused those above him to notice, he Xia Hou would have no choice but to bear the blame.
He turned his eyes towards Blackpeak with an ugly expression on his face. Yet right now, he only saw Blackpeak's expression was even more ugly to behold compared to him. Even with so many fifth-level ascendants, could they still not kill Qin Wentian?
All disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect were arrogant but they were talented geniuses for sure. But they actually couldn't even kill this Qin Wentian?
Number 27 in the Cloud prefecture. Was this really the strength of a participant ranked 27th in the Cloud Prefecture? If this is the case, how powerful would those ranked before him be? And wouldn't disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect be considered nothing but jokes?
Regardless if it was Blackpeak or Xia Hou, their situation now could be described as being on the back of a tiger, impossible to get down halfway.
"This man killed the disciples of our Eastern Sage Immortal Sect with wild abandon, trampling on the prestige of our sect. Such a despicable character, how can we let him pass the test to become a core disciple? Everyone, act together and kill him now." Xia Hou's voice was filled with a solemn killing intent. Qin Wentian was now already pretty far away, and there was an elite disciple that rushed toward him after hearing Xia Hou's command. When Qin Wentian saw this he abruptly released his other two constellations - the Dreamworld Constellation as well as the Sword Slaughter Constellation.
In just an instant, that elite disciple entered the domains of Qin Wentian's constellations. Boundless swords of slaughter cleaved downwards, locking the space around that disciple. With his 100 meter physique, he only needed a single step to arrive before his opponent.
"DIE!" With a roar of rage, his palms shimmered with runic light. It was augmented by the second level battle art, reinforced by bloodline power as well as the Fiendgod Heavenly Suppression Art; in addition to his overwhelming body toughness, blasting outwards with enough strength to slay immortals and gods should they block his path. Terror painted the face of that elite disciple. The entire atmosphere seemed to be filled with a supreme suppressive might as an overwhelming pressure bore down on him. He couldn't help but show a look of fear and despair. Under such torrential might, he had no way to defend against it at all.
The incomparably gigantic heaven-suppression palm imprint slammed down, directly obliterating that elite disciple from existence. Such dominance was truly unexcelled in this world.
Just after he killed that disciple, several experts had caught up to him as they launched attacks at Qin Wentian in a frenzy. Xia Hou's expression was completely grim. The thing he didn't want to see most had happened - the death of an elite disciple.
Although there were countless disciples in the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect, elite disciples belonged to the highest tier outside that of Sage Childs. Everyone that was an elite disciple was heavily nurtured by the sect and the death of any elite disciple had to be accounted for clearly. And for this case, these elite disciples were in the Sage Devil Gorge to supervise the selection test, and it was basically impossible for them to die here. Once there's a death involving elite disciples, the sect would definitely investigate. Even if he killed Qin Wentian, he would definitely still be punished.
But what was damnable was that Qin Wentian hasn't died yet. There seemed to be boundless astral energy contained within his body.
For stellar martial cultivators, the consumption rate of astral energy would naturally be higher the stronger the innate techniques they used.
Qin Wentian was fighting one against all, and every single strike of his contained a towering might as he executed fearsome innate techniques. Such tyrannical strength meant the energy consumption rate would definitely be extremely large. The energy resources a fifth-level ascendant held in his body would definitely not be able to last too long in such a frenzied battle.
"It should be about time he runs out of energy. Given the magnitude of this battle, there is no way he can still continue to persist on." Xia Hou's eyes were as sharp as swords upon seeing various attacks blasting towards Qin Wentian from all directions. If the attacks from so many experts still couldn't kill Qin Wentian, the consequences would be so dire that he dared not imagine it. Once Qin Wentian escaped, given his temper, Xia Hou didn't dare to contemplate how big a commotion Qin Wentian would cause.
If they don't encircle him and attack him in numbers, there were clearly no fifth-level ascendants in the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect able to defend against Qin Wentian's slaughter. Even elite disciples couldn't hope to stand against him and that has already been proven by one of his juniors earlier. With a single strike filled with domineering might, Qin Wentian directly slayed an elite disciple of the same level of cultivation as him.
A countless number of attacks slammed towards Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian stomped on the ground as a towering screen of swords appeared before him. The boundless sharp swords within the sword screen as well as a suppressive pressure blasted out madly, causing explosions from the collision of attacks in the air. The joint attacks were simply too terrifying, they even broke apart the sword screen and blasted into Qin Wentian's body.
Qin Wentian stabbed out with a finger, startling the heavens with a single point. His sword finger transformed into boundless sword might that swept over everything. At the same time, the ancient bells around his body spun rapidly.
"RUMBLE~" Shuddering sounds rang out, those attacks nearing Qin Wentian's body were all shattered into nothingness. His 100 meter physique was forced back, as demonic blood flowed from his wounds. But every droplet of his blood seemed to contain an overwhelming power within them.
"BOOM!" Qin Wentian turned as he stepped out. Every stride he took was exceedingly large. The experts all pursued after him not intending to give him the chance to flee. This originally was a hunting exercise for the disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect but over here, the mission seemed to have been changed to ganging up on Qin Wentian. Several tens of disciples were all targeting a single Qin Wentian.
Gu Liufeng was also surrounded by the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect's disciple. When he occasionally glanced over to Qin Wentian's side, he couldn't help feel awe in his heart. Qin Wentian was truly too strong. After these years, it seemed that Qin Wentian had left him far behind.
Upon thinking up till here, Gu Liufeng's aura intensified to the extreme as though he once again, returned back to the character he was back then which exuded unmatched magnificence through the generations. Hopefully, both Qin Wentian and himself would be able to escape this tribulation.
The 100 meter large Qin Wentian continued taking great strides as he soared away. Each and every step contained enough might to tremble the heavens and a pair of golden wings even took form behind his back. He was akin to a Great Sage Wind Roc, and although his body size was immense, his speed was unbelievably fast. Those experts that were pursuing him actually couldn't match his speed as the slower ones started to fall off his tail. This caused the countenance of many to turn unsightly to behold. If this continued on, the people pursuing Qin Wentian would all be separated and at that time, as long as Qin Wentian turned back for a surprise attack, the remaining number of disciples who could match his speed would definitely be in extreme danger!
