Chapter 852 - Scaring the Crowd
When Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng entered the Building of Refinement, their senses were covered by a flashing blade that lit up the entire area. It felt like an icy cold feeling slashed through their mental energy.
The beaming snow-white blade-light sliced through the air, and waves of snowy lightning seemed to almost slash the entire dimension into pieces.
“Xuanyuan Wen succeeded!”
Exclamations sounded from within the Building of Refinement. Most experts had wary and respectful expressions.
Xuanyuan Wen was indeed worthy of being a prodigy of the four-star Sky Suspension Palace. He had become an Emperor at such a young age, and he was recognized by a substandard God weapon.
He was ranked 7th on the Imperial Genius rankings, which was the highest ranked cultivator amongst those that had entered the Divine Illusion Dimension. If he was able to leave the Divine Illusion Dimension, he would definitely go up a few ranks.
“As expected of a substandard God weapon….” Zhao Feng’s footsteps paused for a moment before he continued walking inside the Building of Refinement.
Although he had obtained a substandard God weapon as well, it was just a support-type weapon with not many offensive capabilities. On the other hand, the force of that substandard God blade had exceeded the limits of an Emperor; it could even threaten Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lords.
Of course, Xuanyuan Wen couldn’t completely and truly control such a substandard God weapon. Just gaining its recognition expended a lot of his energy.
At this moment, Xuanyuan Wen’s face was red as he circulated all his power to control this substandard God weapon. More precisely, he didn’t aim to control it, just stabilize it.
“Only Demigods can unleash the true power of a substandard God weapon,” Nan Gongsheng murmured, and he and Zhao Feng couldn’t help but think of the Demigod Kun Yun.
At his peak, Demigod Kun Yun was glorious, and he was considered strong even among Demigods.
Back at the Ten Thousand Treasures Tower in the Demigod Forgotten Garden, Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng obtained the Sky Locking Bow and the Qiankun Sword, which weren’t even from the highest level of the Ten Thousand Treasures Tower.
One could imagine that the Demigod Kun Yun probably had strong Inheritance Sacred weapons, Heaven-grade divine weapons, or even substandard God weapons.
“Congratulations, Senior Martial Brother Xuanyuan!” The Kings from Sky Suspension Palace revealed joyful expressions as well as some envy and admiration.
“Protect Junior Martial Brother Xuanyuan!” The apricot-robed girl led some people and guarded around Xuanyuan Wen.
Senior Martial Brother Zhuge also approached and started guarding.
“No need.” Xuanyuan Wen took a deep breath, and his Emperor Intent became tougher and stronger with the force and laws of the substandard God weapon. However, his energy was being expended.
At the same time, elsewhere in the Building of Refinement.
“Quick, put some more energy in!”
The three Great Gan Imperial Princes tried to obtain the notched axe. The Ninth Prince was the strongest, and he was in the middle.
Their power started to make the notched axe slowly descend.
The notched axe suddenly turned into the size of a small mountain that almost reached the top of the six-sided building. It gave off a dark light that shook the air.
At this moment, everyone within the Building of Refinement felt their body become heavy.
Some of the weaker Kings spat out a mouthful of blood as their bodies shook.
The three princes combined forces and managed to stabilize the mountain-sized notched axe in front of them.
The giant axe started to slowly compress until it was more than a dozen yards long, and its aura started to fade.
Because the notched axe was a heavy weapon, it was harder to control, so the three Princes had to combine their strength to stabilize it.
At this moment, two incomplete substandard God weapons had been obtained.
The imperials and Sky Suspension Palace had the strongest forces present, so the Kings from other forces obviously didn’t dare to steal from them.
“Hm? Is that the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo…!?” someone exclaimed.
“Watch out, those two thieves are back!”
Some of the Kings were wary. After all, the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo were infamous for ambushing and stealing from others.
“The only items in the Building of Refinement that are complete seem to be on the weapon-stand,” Zhao Feng privately told Nan Gongsheng.
The Demonic Duo started to walk toward the depths of the crater like nothing was wrong.
“Purple-Haired Demonic Duo, how dare you two come back!? You’re courting death!”
There were some Kings in the Building of Refinement that didn’t know what was going on, and they thought that they were the fake Purple-Haired Demonic Duo from before. Only the Kings that left and returned had respect in their eyes.
“Purple… Haired… Demonic… Duo!” Killing intent flashed through Xuanyuan Wen’s eyes after he stabilized the substandard God weapon. In an instant, Magnificent Power and Intent shook the soul-dimension and covered Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng.
“Junior Martial Brother Xuanyuan, stop!” Senior Martial Brother Zhuge wanted to stop him but was a bit too late.
“Xuanyuan Wen, take the lead, and we’ll capture the Demonic Duo together!” There were many voices that agreed with Xuanyuan Wen attacking the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo.
The other Kings from Sky Suspension Palace, such as the girl in apricot robes, also didn’t know what was going on and were full of enmity toward Zhao Feng. The fake Purple-Haired Demonic Duo had ambushed even Sky Suspension Palace.
A Magnificent Power was about to cover Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng.
Some of the Kings who knew the truth were planning to watch this show because they had seen Zhao Feng defeat the Blue Serpent King duo alone. Would the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo be able to retreat unharmed even against Xuanyuan Wen, an Emperor wielding a substandard God weapon?
“Hmph!” Zhao Feng snickered coldly as he kept on walking. He didn’t even stop.
A white mist covered the duo.
“Little World? Eh…? Substandard God weapon…?” Xuanyuan Wen was slightly surprised. Although he was an Emperor, he hadn’t formed his own Little World yet. Furthermore, the Misty Spatial World’s Little World wasn’t any average Little World.
Incredibly, Xuanyuan Wen’s Emperor Intent was like a stone that had fallen into the ocean. There were no signs of any disturbance.
“How is this possible!? A Little World exists in the physical dimension and doesn’t have much defense against the power of Intent. Furthermore, all Little Worlds and domains are suppressed in Xie Yang Palace, so they can’t unleash their full strength….” Xuanyuan Wen was slightly baffled. After becoming an Emperor, he knew a lot more than others.
“I don’t believe it!” Xuanyuan Wen circulated his Emperor Intent to the maximum, and his Magnificent Power crushed toward Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng.
Nan Gongsheng’s heart jumped. This Emperor Intent seemed to have the ability to slice through all Intent, and it suppressed his soul.
However, mockery formed on Zhao Feng’s face, and a weird scene appeared.
Xuanyuan Wen’s body suddenly shook, and he groaned as thunder and lightning seemed to flash in his soul.
“Junior Martial Brother Xuanyuan, are you okay?”
The expressions of the apricot-robed female, Senior Martial Brother Zhuge, and company changed dramatically.
Xuanyuan Wen’s body shook, and his face went red. He almost lost control of the substandard God weapon in his hand. He felt that his Emperor Intent had been blocked by ten thousand arcs of immortal lightning.
The first time, his Emperor Intent was like a stone that sunk into the ocean, but this time, he was counterattacked. He could feel a numbing sensation from his Emperor Intent.
“Xuanyuan Wen, you better hold onto your substandard God weapon first.” Zhao Feng gave a smile as he and Nan Gongsheng kept walking toward the crater as if nothing happened.
“You…!” Xuanyuan Wen’s face turned green and red as if he had been choked. No one was entirely sure about the situation with the substandard God weapon, but after being distracted just now, Xuanyuan Wen almost lost control of it.
This scene made the mouths of the other Kings drop open.
“Those two thieves managed to ignore Xuanyuan Wen’s Emperor Intent?”
“On top of that, Xuanyuan Wen seems to be the one at a disadvantage?”
“Junior Martial Brother Xuanyuan needed to stabilize the substandard God weapon and couldn’t use his full strength, which is what allowed the Demonic Duo to succeed.”
Chaos broke out as the Kings started to talk with each other, and the expressions of those planning to watch a show were extremely colorful.
“Junior Martial Brother Xuanyuan!” Senior Martial Brother Zhuge’s expression was solemn as he put a hand on Xuanyuan Wen’s shoulder.
“Senior Martial Brother Zhuge….” Xuanyuan Wen glanced at Senior Martial Brother Zhuge after stabilizing the substandard God weapon.
“It’s a long story, but we shouldn’t offend Zhao Feng if we can help it,” Senior Martial Brother Zhuge said solemnly.
Hearing that, the other Kings from Sky Suspension Palace, including the apricot-robed female, were stunned. Although the strength of the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo already surprised them, they placed even greater importance on them after hearing Senior Martial Brother Zhuge’s words.
“Those thieves managed to get the Misty Spatial World, and even Xuanyuan Wen can’t suppress them….” The Thirteenth Prince gritted his teeth as hatred overtook his face.
The Eighth Prince and Luo Zun exchanged glances with solemn expressions. They had interacted with Zhao Feng more than once or twice, but every time they met Zhao Feng, he seemed to become more mysterious than before. This opponent was just a bottomless hole; the deeper one went, the more terrified they felt.
At this moment, the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo walked around the crater step by step, and the route they took was the exact same as the Blue Serpent King from before.
Some of the Kings that had returned told everyone else what happened.
“The Purple-Haired Demonic Duo from before was the Blue Serpent King and the Thousand Changes Illusionist Dragon?”
“They were defeated by Zhao Feng alone, and he stole a substandard God weapon from them?”
The Kings that received this news were stunned. Even Xuanyuan Wen’s eyes became wary as he looked toward the Demonic Duo after hearing this news.
At this moment in time, the three strongest forces – Xuanyuan Wen, the three princes, and the Little Sword Saint – were distracted because of the peerless weapons. Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng entering at this moment meant that they were scared of nothing.
“Zhao Feng, if we really fought just now…” Nan Gongsheng started to sweat.
“Our chances of winning against Xuanyuan Wen or the three princes are low, but the situation is under our control.” Zhao Feng gave a faint smile.
Hearing that, Nan Gongsheng couldn’t help but look around, and all the Kings from the other forces had wary expressions and didn’t dare to look directly at his eyes.
