Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
It was just as the participants had speculated, the disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect were thoroughly infuriated by the counter-hunting and wanted to surround and annihilate all the participants. Even the elite disciples were taking part in this.
The disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect wanted to obtain revenge in this location.
Qin Wentian and the other fifty-plus experts at the fifth-level of Celestial Phenomenon gathered together, staring at the hundred-plus fifth-level ascendants that were disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect rushing at them. The aura of their opponents were extremely terrifying, and if based on average strength, the elite disciples and core disciples in the mix made it so that their overall average power is even stronger than the participants. In addition, they even had an advantage in numbers. There was basically no need to consider anything else, this was a battle the participants would definitely lose.
What they were thinking of right now was that since this is a death battle, should they fight to the death or should they escape?
"How to fight this?" There were already participants asking each other.
"This battle has already begun, only a total of 160 participants will survive. This means that we have to endure with all we got, until we become one of the 160 participants remaining." A voice rang out, causing the expressions of the participants to turn solemn. That's right, as long as they could endure till the very end, they would become one of the survivors. However, the question is, who could endure till the very end?
The crowd exchanged glances, their initial will to battle seemed to have already wavered. They had never expected there would be so many disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect remaining.
"Su Feng, Lu Longcloud, you guys are the strongest, please take the role as the controllers of this battle." Upon seeing the disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect getting closer and closer, starting to surrounding them in an arc, the gazes of everyone in the group turned to Su Feng and Lu Longcloud, placing their hopes on the strongest geniuses within their group.
"Brother Qin, please lead us." Those who chose to follow Qin Wentian currently gathered around him. They had personally witnessed Qin Wentian's tyrannical strength before. Compared to Su Feng and Lu Longcloud whose combat prowess was unable to be gauged accurately, they would rather believe in Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian stared at those around him. Their eyes were all flickering with hope. These people were all willing to believe him despite the existence of Su Feng, the top ranker of the Thunder Prefecture.
"Fine. You guys were gathered here by me. Since you are willing to follow me, I will do my best to guarantee your safety." Qin Wentian nodded. His words made all of them feel at ease. All of them stood beside Qin Wentian and replied, "We are all willing to trust in Brother Qin. As to how should we fight, you can just dictate. We won't have any complaints."
"Yes, we will follow your instructions to the letter." The eyes of the crowd around him flickered like embers. Facing against these experts from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect, a fearsome battle intent could be felt gushing forth from them.
"These bastards from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect treat us as prey to hunt down, yet they still speak so self-righteously as though we should be thankful for them hunting us down. Once we resist in the slightest, we are all considered to have committed heinous crimes, not knowing what's good for ourselves?" An expert roared in displeasure. Those disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect got closer and closer and they appeared to be extremely cautious as well. Evidently, the counter-hunting caused fear to appear in their hearts, knowing that these participants are extremely hard to antagonize.
The one who was ranked #27 of the Cloud Prefecture, Qin Wentian, was precisely within the group. It was none other than this man who initiated the counter-hunting, and he was even able to escape alive despite the disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect ganging up on him.. The him who was enraged then, directly started his counter-attack, gathering more and more people to form the tempest that existed today, causing the losses to their sect to be extremely grievous. They must certainly be cautious of this man.
"Nothing but a bunch of crows. At this moment you all still wish to divide us and fight your own respective battles?" Those experts in the group following Su Feng stared at the people around Qin Wentian with an incredibly unsightly expression. Their group of fifty-plus was already considered weaker compared to the hundred-plus fifth-level ascendant disciples. Yet, now Qin Wentian even wanted to divide their group?
"That's right, in such times we should gather our strength instead." Another sharp gaze from an expert turned to Qin Wentian. Someone merely ranked 27th actually caused so many to want to follow him?
Su Feng also turned to Qin Wentian, but there was calmness in his gaze and no one could tell what he was thinking. As for Lu Longcloud, the second ranker of the Jing Prefecture, he directly stated, "Since you all have chosen to follow him. Don't stick with us when the battle starts."
Lu Longcloud's words were as though he wanted to clearly separate the group into two factions. As they spoke, the disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect already rushed over. A variety of constellations filled the skies as an overwhelming surge of apocalyptic might gushed over, so powerful that it seemed this piece of sky was about to collapse.
With over a hundred experts at the Celestial Phenomenon level, even if they attacked only once, the amount of might unleashed would certainly be enough to destroy the heavens and earth. One could very well imagine how strong the aftershock would be when the experts on both sides launched their attacks.
Very swiftly, everyone saw that the hundred-plus fifth-level ascendant disciples all simultaneously launched their attacks, aiming right for the grouped participants. The whistling sounds echoed out loud as a raging wind kicked up. The energy within those attacks congregated and manifested into a terrifying storm that resembled a black hole bringing judgement day, capable of devouring all the experts opposing them.
"ATTACK! Break that combination might!" Su Feng commanded. The participants also all launched out attacks simultaneously. There were definitely no weaklings among those that were able to last until this point, all of them were outstanding characters. When they attacked together, a might that could startle the heavens was unleashed. Qin Wentian's battle qi gushed forth as his bloodline power thrummed. The suppressive annihilation constellation appear as he blasted his palms outwards with enough might to suppress the heavens.
The pressure in this space became incomparably violent. Rumbling thunderous sounds echoed unceasingly as destructive beams of light ravaged the space, ripping apart a few bodies. Although some of the disciples died, while several others were being suppressed and there were disruptions to their team formation, the number of disciples still overwhelmed the participants and they were currently preparing for their second joint-attack.
"Follow me, we will break out of this encirclement." Qin Wentian spoke. Terrifying rumbling sounds thundered out as his body expanded unceasingly. A layer of armor made of light enveloped him, as dazzling runic inscriptions could be seen circulating around it.
"RUMBLE~" Qin Wentian's body grew larger and larger, instantly reaching over a 100 meters and was still expanding. Both his palms grabbed out, directly grabbing two disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect that were standing in the air.
The rumbling sounds continued, Qin Wentian grew to a total of 300 meters. How shocking was this, the disciples were so frightened that their formation was in chaos and right now there were even two disciples grabbed within his hands.
"GO!" Qin Wentian stepped out, causing a thunderous sound to reverberate through the air. His gigantic palms blasted outwards ferociously, shimmering with boundless runic light, seemingly with enough power to suppress the heavens. Those disciples struggled frenziedly within his palms while Qin Wentian's group of expert exchanged blows against the other disciples, opening up a path for Qin Wentian.
Su Feng and his group killed their way towards another direction as their group split into two factions - each heading towards different directions.
In this area that was surrounded by mountain peaks, the other groups of cultivators also started their own battles against the overwhelming attacks of their similar-level counterparts. Instantly, combat erupted unceasingly as the sounds of clashing rang out. The earth trembled and broke apart and there were even mountain peaks getting shattered due to the aftershocks of some of the attacks. It was too violent and terrifying.
Chaos and savagery were the only two words sufficient to describe this scenario. The battles between the groups of nine great cultivation levels erupted all out in this location. Although there were some participants who were at other locations and didn't participant in this, they could be considered the minority as the vast majority of participants have already gathered here.
For the battle of the fifth-level ascendants, Qin Wentian's current physique had already expanded to 500 meters, his entire body was radiating a fiendgod glow that circulated protectively around him like armor. There was also terrifying blood-colored light shining from him and at this instant he completely resembled an absolute supreme demon king, one filled with a towering battle might who could collapse the sky and earth with a single lift of his hands. External disciples basically couldn't even stand up to a single one of his attacks, as long as there were people who dared to match attacks against him, it would only lead to their deaths. In the blink of an eye, seven to eight disciples were already smashed apart by him. Naturally, Qin Wentian also endured several attacks. Because of his immense physique, he simply had no way to dodge the flurry of attacks launched simultaneously by the disciples.
"How powerful." There were a total of twenty who chose to follow Qin Wentian. They were situated around Qin Wentian, and upon seeing his gigantic physique, they couldn't help but to compliment how powerful he was. As fellow heaven chosen, they were naturally proud individuals but in front of Qin Wentian, they were willing to acknowledge that they were inferior.
Not only that, given Qin Wentian's overwhelming strength, who could stop him if he wanted to leave alone? But Qin Wentian helped them all, propping up this piece of sky alone simply because they had believed in him, choosing to follow him. He spared no expense to endure the majority of the attacks, as evident by a number of wounds that could already be seen on his flesh.
Beside Qin Wentian, a beautiful silhouette had always been there from the start, fighting side by side with him. This exquisite silhouette radiated a divine glow as a number of divine falcons surrounded her, exuding magnificence throughout the generations. It was naturally none other than Zi Qingxuan.
"We can't let Brother Qin withstand such a great pressure by himself. Let's kill them together!"
"Yes, currently Brother Qin is propping up the heavens and earth alone. Us, as the heaven chosen from each prefecture, how can we cower under Brother Qin's protection and not do anything?" One voice after another rose up. These participants were also demon-level characters of their respective prefecture and were extremely proud individuals. Right now, they only felt hot blood rising through their veins as all of them soared up into the skies, protectively standing around Qin Wentian, wanting to fight shoulder by shoulder with him, forcing open a pathway for them all to escape.
"BOOM!" Qin Wentian stomped on the ground, every step he took made the earth quake intensely. His palms blasted out a countless number of war bells and the bell chimes echoed incessantly. There was even a core disciple dying underneath the sound waves, jolted to death by the pressure exuded.
Those participants that chose to attack Qin Wentian's group found their team formation in chaos. But at this moment behind Qin Wentian, there was an elite disciple whose eyes gleamed with crimson light. He released his own constellation which resembled a devouring black hole and around him were other disciples that continuously fed their energy to his black hole, causing an apocalyptic might that could shatter and destroy the heavens and earth to be born.
The eyes of the elite disciple glared hatefully at Qin Wentian. The crimes of this man were too heinous, killing so many disciples of their Eastern Sage Immortal Sect. Originally, given Qin Wentian's talent, he was destined to become an important character of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect and even with a high probability of becoming an elite disciple, receiving recognition from the elders. However, his hands were stained with too much blood. Hence, he was destined to die here today no matter what.
After devouring the energy of around five to six disciples, the energy within the black hole actually turned red, resembling a freshly bloomed blood-colored devilish flower. The elite disciple stepped out like the wind, blasting his hands outwards, launching the blood-colored devil flower of destruction towards Qin Wentian's immense body. In just an instant, a terrifying black tempest with enough power to destroy the heavens and earth appeared in the air, descending downwards aiming to engulf all the participants!
