Chapter 878: Qin Wentian's Arrogance
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Jun Mengchen was fighting against Ye Qianchen, Zi Qingxuan against Qin Ta. The two of them exchanged opponent.
Feather King was still in combat with Mo Wen. Feather King is a young king of the Winged Devil Race while Mo Wen had a frost king physique, she was simply like a goddess of ice.
As for Gusu Tianqi, he walked towards Ruthless, the disciple of the Undefeatable Devil King.
He Gusu Tianqi was ranked first during the first round and ranked second during the second round. For this final battle, if he were to rank first again, his ultimate tabulated ranking would also be first. But if the top ranking for the last battle was seized by Hua Taixu, he would then have no fate with first place.
He had to be ranked first for this final battle.
Ruthless, the disciple of the Undefeatable Demon King shall be his first fight.
From Gusu Tianqi, heat like the blazing sun radiated forth as a total of nine balls of sunfire appeared in the air above him. These balls of sunfire then gathered at the center of his constellation which was in the form of a furnace, emanating a heat so high in temperature that it could incinerate everything on earth, containing a boundless destructive power.
The devil might from Ruthless towered into the sky as the phantom of an ancient devil with a black devil spear in its hand manifested.
Gusu Tianqi stared at the ancient devil, there were no fluctuations to his expression. Since Qin Wentian could defeat Ruthless, how could he fail to do so? He wanted the position of the top ranker. Qin Wentian also needed to be trampled by him. Right now in his eyes, Qin Wentian, Hua Taixu and Feather King, these three posed the greatest threat to him.
On top of the furnace, an endless divine glow shot out, akin to numerous dazzling blazing long spears. If the light from the spears were directed at people, the heat from them was sufficient to bake a person alive.
Ruthless' devil might surged. With a wave of his hand, a terrifying pitch-black devil shield manifested as the blazing light beams shot over, successfully blocking Gusu Tianqi's attack.
Gusu Tianqi waved his hands, as the nine balls of sunfire in the air frenziedly gushed into the furnace as the temperature around started to soar rapidly upwards. After which, rumbling sounds echoed out as a gigantic sun appeared, transforming into a golden sun spear that flew into Gusu Tianqi's hand. This particular spear contained a boundless heat, able to turn anything in its surroundings into ashes as long as Gusu Tianqi willed it.
Stepping out, the long spear in Gusu Tianqi's hand erupted forth. The terrifying sun spear penetrated through the space, obliterating everything that obstructed it.
The ancient devil in the air howled. Numerous black spears exploded outwards but when Gusu Tianqi's sun spear passed by, all of them were burned into cinders. A thunderous boom echoed as the devil shield shattered apart. After which, only when Ruthless' devil spear personally smashed against Gusu TIanqi's sun spear did he manage to block this strike of Gusu Tianqi.
Gusu Tianqi stood in his original location as a battle might gushed forth from him. With a wave of his hands, even more sun spears appeared from the furnace, greatly shocking the hearts of the spectators - the power of a single sun spear was already inconceivable, let alone now when there are so many of them.
"Facing against Gusu Tianqi? It's only obvious Ruthless would be defeated." The spectators silently mused as they observed.
Gusu Tianqi was too strong. The top ranker of the Eastern Prefecture, a single descendant of nine generations, with all of them being immortal kings...His future achievements would be an immortal king at the lowest as well. He was an innate supreme character from birth.
Ruthless, the disciple of the Undefeatable Devil King. Although his potential was boundless and had tyrannical combat strength, he lost the first battle against Qin Wentian and for this second battle, the one he fought against was none other than Gusu Tianqi. Hence, there was no suspense that he lost.
In this case, Ruthless' probability of entering the top three rankings would already almost be non-existent.
"The battle between Feather King and Mo Wen is extremely intense." The immortal kings watched with rapt attention. On the battle platform, a total of four battles were fought at the same time, filling the spectators with fascination as they turned their full attention onto the participants.
At this moment, upon borrowing the power of his constellation, Feather King seemed to be like a devil king of the starry skies. His wings were incomparably resplendent, shimmering with terrifying runic inscriptions. Mo Wen soared into the air, resembling a goddess of ice and snow. Her cold intent completely gushed forth, trying to use the elements in her world of ice to her fullest advantage as she fought against Feather King.
Jun Mengchen's combat was always the most direct. Ye Qianchen's sword arts were intricate and profound while Jun Mengchen directly broke through with absolute strength. He transformed into a supreme king and with a single roar, causing the entire world to tremble. There seemed to be demonic beasts, war chariots and boundless chaos generated from him. He was so powerful that he exuded an unexcelled aura in the world. Although Ye Qianchen's sword arts were powerful, he was still in imminent danger when facing such overwhelming power and was placed in a disadvantageous position, being forcibly suppressed at every turn.
Zi Qingxuan's battle with Qin Ta was just as fascinating. Zi Qingxuan transformed into a divine falcon while Qin Ta transformed into a heavenly god.
In terms of attacks, it was clear Zi Qingxuan was inferior to Jun Mengchen, she had no way to fight the way her junior brother did, matching strength against strength. She could only depend on her advantage in speed and launch a volley of attacks against Qin Ta.
The speed of the blazing golden divine falcon was simply too fast. Especially so after Zi Qingxuan unleashed the power of her bloodline, which manifested a phantom of a divine falcon that enveloped her completely. In just an instant, her wings flapped over a hundred times as she transformed into a beam of light that arced around the battlefield while launching her attacks. The heavenly god that Qin Ta transformed into could not even touch her.
Qin Ta was completely enraged, the heavenly god constellation hung in the skies, wanting to bury everything underneath.
Zi Qingxuan moved so fast that countless after-images were created, each manifesting divine falcons. In the next moment, all the divine falcons erupted forth with a torrent of attacks at the exact same moment, aiming for Qin Ta.
Qin Ta let out an earth-shattering roar as both his gigantic palms violently smashed out, covering the skies. Deafening rumbling sounds echoed out endlessly, as he crushed a countless number of falcons underneath the might of his palms. But at this moment, a golden-colored falcon was diving right at him. His palms moved to intercept but the speed of the falcon was just too fast, easy bypassing his attacks, slashing out as it aimed for Qin Ta's head.
Qin Ta's expressions drastically changed as he brought his palms before his head, protecting it. That golden falcon then changed its aim and gorged out a horizontal line of flesh from his chest before returning back to the air. At this moment if Zi Qingxuan so choose to, she could already dig Qin Ta's heart out.
Qin Ta lowered his head and glanced at his injuries before returning his gaze back to Zi Qingxuan as he spoke. "Your speed is superior to me, but in terms of attacks, I can overwhelm you."
"So what? You've lost." Zi Qingxuan emotionlessly spoke. The ending was all that matters.
"I've lost indeed." Qin Ta turned ashen, he had continuously lost two battles. What a humiliation, he already has no hope of being part of the top three.
At this moment, Ye Qianchen roared with reluctance. His entire body was flung through the air. He was also defeated by Jun Mengchen.
Qin Ta and Ye Qianchen were extremely pitiful. The two of them were chosen by Jun Mengchen and Zi Qingxuan, and became stepping stones.
Or more accurately, they were 'chosen' by Qin Wentian.
Naturally, this couldn't be helped. Qin Wentian and his two sect members had poor results during the first two rounds, after being intentionally targeted by Dongsheng Ting. This was the final battle, they had to use the most overwhelmingly and dominant method to gain attention. Even if at the very end they couldn't be part of the top three due to Dongsheng Ting's hidden machinations, they would have no regrets as they already did their very best.
They had no way to control the first two rounds of testing at all. This final battle was the only thing they had some modicum of control over. Naturally, they had to do their very best, nobody can stop them.
"Senior brother!" Upon seeing Zi Qingxuan's battle end, Jun Mengchen called out to Qin Wentian. Who should they fight next??
At this moment, Qin Wentian also discovered that the battle between Feather King and Mo Wen had came to an end. The battle between them shook the heavens and earth, and was extremely intense.
Ultimately, Mo Wen, the disciple of the Heavenly Talisman Realm still lost to the top ranker of the Western Prefecture, Feather King of the Winged Devil Race.
Qin Wentian's eyes gleamed with sharpness. Jun Mengchen and Zi Qingxuan's had both fought two battles and should already be enough to leave a deep impression on the immortal kings. But this wasn't enough yet. Next, for Jun Mengchen, he needed to fight against a 'heavy-weight,' to silence everyone in order to do his combat prowess justice.
"Mengchen, fight against Feather King."
Feather King had already defeated Mo Wen and was initially planning to fight against Ruthless next. As long as Jun Mengchen defeated Feather King in this battle of 'heavy-weights,' his remaining opponents should only be Gusu Tianqi and Hua Taixu. The other participants are not worthy of consideration and there's no need for Jun Mengchen to clash against Mo Wen.
"Okay!" Jun Mengchen's eyes flickered with excitement. Fighting against Feather King? He was naturally excited. Feather King was one of the strongest few among the ten participants.
"How arrogant." The experts at the immortal banquet all started with shock. Qin Wentian actually wanted Jun Mengchen to fight against Feather King. How tyrannical was this?
Upon seeing Jun Mengchen walking closer and closer to him, Feather King's eyes gleamed with sharpness as the violet-gold wings behind his back flickered. Intricate runic networks shimmered on his wings, they were simply akin to an indestructible divine weapon. Earlier during his battle against Mo Wen, just this pair of wings had given Mo Wen an extremely oppressive threat and pressure.
"Qingxuan, fight against Ruthless." Qin Wentian stated to Zi Qingxuan.
"Okay." Zi Qingxuan nodded as she walked towards the disciple of the Undefeatable Devil King.
Ruthless had already lost two battles.
"This fellow, it feels as though everything in this final battle among the ten participants is being directed by him." The spectators stared at Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian stood at the center of the platform as he watched Jun Mengchen launching an attack against Feather King while Zi Qingxuan challenged Ruthless.
In just an instant, two great battles erupted violently on the platform.
This was especially so for the combat between Feather King and Jun Mengchen. Both of them were like supreme kings of their generation. Feather King's violet-gold wings continuously launched attacks with thunderous might. Jun Mengchen howled in madness, causing the air to tremble. His strength could even shake the heavens and was terrifying to the extreme.
Qin Wentian stared at the four of them fighting. His expression was exceedingly composed and calm. Even he wasn't sure what trump cards his junior brother had but he knew they would surely be extremely powerful. It felt like Jun Mengchen could borrow strength from a supreme ancient force to augment his strength and despite Feather King's might, Qin Wentian believed that Jun Mengchen would be victorious.
He had already experienced Ruthless' combat prowess. Although he was also very strong, Zi Qingxuan should be able to handle it. These two battles were almost already a given.
As for himself, he naturally couldn't fall behind. He walked towards the back of the platform and stared at Qin Ta and Ye Qianchen. Both of them icily regarded him as their eyes flashed with an intense flame born from their fury.
"Are you two angry?" Qin Wentian swept a glance at them and spoke. "If you are, just come at me together. Although the rules say that we cannot gang up on any single person, I'm willing to fight against both of you at the same time. Neither of you are my match if we fight one-on-one."
"BOOOOOM!" As the sound of Qin Wentian's voice faded, Qin Ta stomped harshly on the ground and bellowed in rage. The entire space shook from the force of his shout, and as for Ye Qianchen, a tempest of sword qi gushed forth madly from him.
As part of the ten participants, Qin Wentian actually told them to come at him together because they weren't a match for him if they fought one-on-one!
