Chapter 709 -
“Law-Defying Martial Highness Realm! He’s achieved the Law-Defying Martial Highness Realm!”
Progenitor Wen Dao and the Leader of the Trading Alliance rose from their seats with anguish on their faces.
Only the top three geniuses on the Hidden Dragon Ranking had achieved the Law-Defying Martial Highness Realm.
However, leaving Duan Qing’s Martial Spirit and talent aside, his cultivation alone could place him at the fourth rank, comparable to the top three geniuses!
They did not lose their ground because Duan Qing was able to achieve this cultivation.
Most importantly, it had only taken Duan Qing three months!
He had ranked up from the eighth-layer Martial Highness Realm to the Law-Defying Martial Highness Realm in just three months!
Who else could have done it?
“Nice one, kid!”
The authorities of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom were surprised. They had not expected Duan Qing to possess such an outstanding cultivation when he reappeared.
This was particularly true for the Sky-Scorching Emperor, who was now even more convinced that his decision to help Duan Qing in the past was definitely the wisest decision he had ever made.
Did it matter if Duan Qing was Qin Nan’s disguise?
In the Martial World, strength was all that mattered!
Soon, Duan Qing would proceed to the Heavenly Fortune Path and alter his destiny. He could even eliminate the Dao-Seeking Mountain!
“Quick! Spread the word, summon Zhang Bifan here!”
Progenitor Wen Dao uttered a roar and gave a command.
The eyes of the experts of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom instantly coldened. They clearly knew who Zhang Bifan was—a disciple of the Dao-Seeking Mountain that had recently ranked up to the Martial Sacred Realm. If the Dao-Seeking Mountain was planning to eliminate Duan Qing with a Martial Sacred Realm expert, they would interfere at once.
...Meanwhile, on the battlefield...
“Ten Thousand Magical Hairs, magical glow illuminating the sky!”
As the lightning rays struck downward onto the crowd, Tong Xingwei spat out a drop of blood as his magical hair emitted a shocking glow, forming a huge wall that shrouded the heavens.
Under the circumstances, he had been forced to execute a forbidden technique to defend himself.
However, he was more specialized in offense, thus his defense was relatively weak.
Qin Nan’s aura rose rapidly.
Following his command, more lightning rays began to appear in his surroundings, each with a stronger power.
“How many streams of the force of the Martial Highness Realm does he actually have in his body…”
Tong Xingwei’s eyes flickered with terror. Without a doubt, if the lightning rays were to descend at the same time, even his magical hair would not stand a chance in resisting the combined power. At that instant, he immediately made up his mind. He withdrew the wall and covered his figure instead.
The survival of the others has nothing to do with me!
The disciples of the Dao-Seeking Mountain screamed as they were overwhelmed by fear.
Without Tong Xingwei’s help, their deaths were guaranteed.
Tong Xingwei wore an icy expression. The Dao-Seeking Mountain had taught its disciples to be self-centered in the Martial World. As such, the deaths of these disciples were far from his concern!
At that instant, a rift suddenly appeared, emitting a sacred glow.
A tall figure stepped out from the rift.
Following this, the suppression of the sea of flames and lightning rays weakened due to the presence of the figure.
“Duan Qing! That’s enough!”
The figure snapped, causing the entire space to tremble.
The disciples who was immersed in despair finally caught a glimpse of hope seeing this.
“It’s Senior Zhang Bifan!”
“We’re safe! We’re finally safe!”
“A Martial Sacred Realm expert is here!”
The rogue cultivators stared with their eyes open wide. They did not expect a competition between young geniuses to attract the newly ranked up Martial Sacred Realm expert of the Dao-Seeking Mountain here.
“Trying to stop me with your mere cultivation of the first-layer Martial Sacred Realm?”
However, Qin Nan responded with a loud roar as he unleashed a tremendous battle intent.
So what if a Martial Sacred was here!
Today, he would challenge this Martial Sacred Realm expert with his strength of the Law-Defying Martial Highness Realm!
“How ruthless of you!”
Zhang Bifan wore an infuriated look. Even though his cultivation was only at the first-layer Martial Highness Realm, there existed a tremendous gap between the Martial Sacred Realm and Martial Highness Realm. Did Duan Qing really think he was a peerless genius who could challenge someone with a cultivation at a higher realm?
Zhang Bifan reached out his hand.
A huge palm emitting a sacred glow was formed, before slapping at Qin Nan’s figure with tremendous might.
Tong Xingwei and the rest of the geniuses were left in awe. How bold of this Duan Qing to challenge a Martial Sacred Realm expert.
Qin Nan’s eyes flickered sharply. The battle against Tong Xingwei and the others was entirely one-sided. Only by battling against Zhang Bifan, a first-layer Martial Sacred, would he be able to enjoy the excitement of a true battle!”
“Vermilion Bird Striking the Heavens!”
Qin Nan let out a roar as his figure transformed into a giant Vermilion Bird engulfed in blazing flames. Following a cry, he sprang into the sky and penetrated the palm.
“Mm? How powerful!”
Zhang Bifan’s eyes flickered with astonishment. He could not help but admit that this Duan Qing’s strength was indeed extraordinary.
“However, that doesn’t give you the right to challenge a Martial Sacred Realm expert!”
Zhang Bifan snapped as the sacred force in his body was gathered.
Following this, a sacred glow burst out from his body, which summoned a rain that poured down on Qin Nan’s figure.
The rogue cultivators could feel their souls shivering.
A Martial Highness was considered the highness of Martial Arts.
A Martial Sacred had surpassed the limits of Martial Arts, in order to become a sacred being!
Even a single stream of sacred force would turn into a devastating blow, completely outclassing the strength of Martial Highness Realm cultivators!
“Left eye of the Divine God of Battle!”
Qin Nan quickly observed the rain with his godly eye and executed the Monarch Cloud Art, weaving through the attack while approaching his opponent.
Even if it was a Martial Sacred’s attack!
He was now able to predict its path!
“What?” Zhang Bifan was stupefied. The speed of his attack was impossible to be comprehended by a Martial Highness. How had this Duan Qing dodged it?
In the blink of an eye...
Qin Nan’s figure turned into a puff of smoke. The next moment, his figure reappeared above Zhang Bifan.
The ancient saber Ira unleashed a terrifying glow as it was swung downward!
“Flesh of the Martial Sacred Realm, impenetrable by ten thousand attacks!”
Zhang Bifan could feel his scalp turning numb as a sense of danger arose within him. A sacred glow was emitted and covered his figure.
An explosion took place.
It was as if Qin Nan’s ancient saber had struck a solid world, leaving it unable to move forward a single inch.
“HAHA, Duan Qing, I must admit that your cultivation of the Law-Defying Martial Highness Realm is impressive, but the supremacy of the Martial Sacred Realm is nothing the Martial Highness Realm can match with.” Zhang Bifan burst out laughing.
Qin Nan’s gaze coldened.
The Phoenix Soul-Consuming Fire, Sky Thunder, Aging saber intent, etc. were accumulated on the tip of the ancient saber Ira together with the nine thousand nine hundred and ninety-nine streams of the force of the Martial Highness Realm.
The power of the saber immediately skyrocketed!
“How is this possible!”
Zhang Bifan’s face turned pale as he reacted.
At that instant, the sacred glow protecting him was shattered into pieces. A tremendous saber intent devoured his figure like a soaring dragon.
BANG BANG BANG!
A series of explosions took place.
The moment the saber intent was unleashed, Zhang Bifan immediately used his sacred force to form a layer of protection covering his flesh to resist the power of the slash.
Despite that, his flesh suffered a significant impact.
In the blink of an eye, he had been knocked a few hundred steps backward.
Seeing this, Tong Xingwei, Wu Hao, Zhu Hang, and the others could feel their throats turning dry and chills running down their spines.
A Martial Sacred...
Was knocked backward?
Wasn’t this Duan Qing’s strength a bit too ridiculous?!
