Chapter 164: Manfaced Frostspid
Tian Fengzi snorted aloud without batting a single eye at Wei Suo. His body flashed with cyan light as he leapt and soared towards the blood reeked Profound Iron duelling stage.
“Ah, the Wind-borne Flyer! That’s a high-level Profound rank skill technique!”
“Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator, what more, a Heavenly Circuit Stage level 2 cultivator! We are in for a fantastic match!”
Several astute cultivators observed the stage activities without blinking their eyes. Amongst them, several had cultivated Aura Determining skill techniques, and could fathom Tian Fengzi’s flying skill technique as well as his true energy cultivation.
“Wei Suo, you must be careful.” The concerned Nangong Yuqing pleaded to Wei Suo
“Make sure you beat that scum till his mum cannot recognize him. What an eyesore from the start, acting all rampant with just his Heavenly Circuit Stage level 2 cultivation.” Instead, Han Weiwei snorted as she commanded Wei Suo.
As compared to Tian Fengzi, Wei Suo entered the stage in a rather low key manner; slowly strolling up the Profound Iron stage.
“This fella seems rather lacking and he doesn’t look like he possesses anything much. He’ll definitely lose to the other one I betted on.”
Observing how Wei Suo entered the stage, an Iron armored, macho looking cultivator, who had just betted on Tian Fengzi, scoffed aloud conceitedly.
“That can’t be said for sure. That Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator actually procured the Rainbow Stone back at the auction, his backing is definitely not ordinary. Moreover, it seems that he and the young master of the Golden Eagle Palace are love rivals. Without adequate power, how would he dare to do so. Brother, I think you’ll lose your bet this time.” Instead, another cultivator beside him voiced his disagreement. Surprisingly, the one who voiced out was that same passerby cultivator, that Li Honglin who stopped to survey Wei Suo and Nangong Yuqing.
“Golden Eagle Palace? You’re talking about the Golden Eagle Palace that I just betted on?” The macho cultivator listened and burst into hysterical laughters. “I say brother, you are really brainless. Isn’t the Golden Eagle Palace a sect that nurtures demonic beasts in Spirit Peak City? A Heavenly Circuit Stage expert from there would undoubtedly possess a demonic beast as well. Isn’t it simply one versus two now? You actually claim that I will lose my bet?”
“Look at how witty that fellow is, wouldn’t he think of that as well? Another cultivator who followed just for the entertainment disdainfully interrupted and snorted. “Just observe his complacently confident state. He is definitely outstanding. Anyway, I have an absolutely favourable impression of him.”
“What’s the use of looking at the exterior. Just recall that fierce brat that just fought, wasn’t he done in by the milder party in the end.” To which the Macho cultivator replied. “Alright brothers, stop squabbling. Just listen closely to him. Place your bets on the Golden Eagle Palace and you’ll at least earn it back.”
That passerby cultivator scoffed, “Buy it yourself if you want. Don’t try to persuade me into a losing bet even if you don’t listen to me.”
“Why are you such a stubborn witless moron?” That macho cultivator became slightly angsty. “Why not I make a bet with you?”
“Fine, a bet it is then, who’s afraid.” that passerby cultivator snubbed.
“Fine!” That macho cultivator laughed loudly. “Since spiritual stones will sully one’s relationship, whoever loses, will have to go around here naked, while shouting out ‘I lost, I’m a pig’. How’s that?”
“Fine! Ain’t nobody’s afraid of you!” That passerby cultivator replied. “Then a bet it is!”
“Little rascal. I’ll give you a chance to obediently kneel and kowtow nine times to me. Perhaps, I will spare your life.” At present back atop the duelling stage, Tian Fengzi was austerely mocking Wei Suo. His flat face was brimming with utmost maliciousness.
“Really? If I do that, you’d spare my life?” Wei Suo replied immediately with sparkling eyes. “Will you be true to your words?”
His reply instantly stumped Tian Fengzi.
“Dumbass!” Instead, Wei Suo abruptly changed his expression while spewing out his ridicule.
“YOU!” Tian Fengzi almost hopped with fury.
Instead, Wei Suo started regarding him as a pig to be slaughtered, as he proactively activated out his defensive artifacts.
A large and thick scarlet artifact shield floated out before Wei Suo, as it emanated embers of flames.
Wei Suo knew that Tian Fengzi was greatly relying on his true Spirit class artifact today, hence, he naturally summoned out his Spirit class Scarlet Beetle Shield that could withstand assaults from a Spirit class offensive artifact.
After which Wei Suo then summoned out his Golden Sunflower Shield that was nearing the Spirit class to cover his rear. Although he acquired this Golden Sunflower Shield from that elite Moonlight Sect disciple, it wasn’t a sole specialty of the Moonlight Sect’s. Within the entire Heavenly Profound Continent, there was at least 6 of such shields. Hence, summoning it out naturally wouldn’t be a big issue.
Nevertheless, Wei Suo still wasn’t satisfied. His most potent divine light screen artifact was a unique equipment from the Moonlight Sect, thus, he didn’t dare to reveal it. Instead, he activated two other commonplace Half-spirit class divine light screen.
These were all rather mediocre equipments to Wei Suo that weren’t his strongest defensive tools. Yet when he summoned out these equipments, it instantly caused an uproar through the audience of cultivators; causing that confident macho cultivator who supported Tian Fengzi to stare with a stupefied demeanor.
Besides, most of the audience here were merely Divine Sea Stage cultivators. To a Divine Sea Stage cultivator, a Golden Sunflower Shield that neared the Spirit class was already an exceedingly rare item; much less to speak about a true Spirit class artifact shield.
“This brat does have quite a few stuffs.” Xin Youlan flashed a conceited expression. Instead, Dong Qingyi faintly snorted without a trace of emotion.
Still, Tian Fengzi remained a rather shady countenance.
Then, he first summoned out a golden light screen, before producing a 3 metre long cyan banner where its flag was fluttering with a gigantic sinister centipede.
“Cyan Centipede Banner! That’s a low-grade Spirit class defensive artifact!”
The cultivators that betted on Tian Fengzi instantly cried with joyous excitement.
Meanwhile, Nangong Yuqing’s heart instantly sank. She hadn’t expected that apart from a Spirit class offensive artifact, Tian Fengzi was also in possession of a true Spirit class defensive artifact.
Two Spirit class artifacts, one offense one defense. For a Heavenly Circuit Stage 2 cultivator, this might would be sufficient to deal with a mediocre Heavenly Circuit Stage level 4 cultivator without any Spirit class artifact.
Back on stage, following the unceasingly channeling of true energy, cyan nature spirit energy started emanating out from the banner and eventually formed into a 7 metre long cyan centipede. The centipede coiled around Tian Fengzi with its head pointing towards Wei Suo, threatening to devour him with a single chomp.
Instead, Wei Suo glared expressionlessly at that magnified cyan centipede. Observing that it was incapable of leaving the close proximity of that Cyan Centipede Banner, he knew it was merely a pure defensive-type artifact.
After summoning out a single Cyan Centipede Banner, Tian Fengzi didn’t activate other defensive artifacts. Instead, he clutched onto a chicken talon-looking white artifact in his hand.
One could notice white frosty mist emitting from that artifact. Evidently, it was that Glacic Scissors that was forged from a level 6 Underworld Darkbird that Nangong Yuqing had leaked to Wei Suo earlier.
“Eh? Why does that female cultivator have the same flat face as yours. Could she be your mother no?” All of a sudden, Wei Suo pointed towards the audience stand.
Tian Fengzi immediately shifted his gaze distractedly. Instead, he could only see an East Victory disciple waving his hand down.
“Shit!” Tian Fengzi’s brows hopped as he urgently waved his Cyan Centipede Banner, prompting that gigantic cyan centipede to coil around him tightly.
Ding! Within a split second, a ringing resounded through Ironblood Temple. In that same moment, a streak of black light speared out from Wei Suo’s hand and struck against the gigantic cyan centipede.
That black light punctured through that gigantic cyan centipede. However upon that, it exhausted its might and returned back to Wei Suo’s hand. Indeed, it was Wei Suo’s tiny black arrow.
“Spirit class offensive artifact!”
“This will truly be an excellent show to watch!”
“Indeed, a duel between Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivators is simply incomparable to a duel between Divine Sea Stage cultivators.”
A ruckus exploded amongst the audience instantaneously.
“Little rascal, I say no wonder you dare to be so brassy. As it turns out, you have the backings of two such artifacts. But don’t you worry, I will let you have a taste of living but wishing you were dead!” In contrast, Tian Fengzi was utterly composed. While he spoke, the Glacic Scissors in his hand emitted a sound, and jetted straight towards Wei Suo’s Scarlet Beetle Shield.
“It is actually an outstanding Spirit class defensive artifact!”
Cheers erupted from the stage as the Scarlet Beetle Shield easily blocked off the Glacic Scissors. Not a single crack could be seen on the shield’s surface.
Despite so, Wei Suo’s expression turned increasingly sullen.
Probably due to the peculiar shape of the Glacic Scissors, when surging through the air, it would transform into a white beam in the shape of a scissors. Moreover, it wouldn’t soar through the air like an ordinary attacking artifact, but would carve out an arc and strike against both sides of the opponent.
Therefore, Wei Suo had to cautiously shift the positioning of his Scarlet Beetle Shield whenever Tian Fengzi attacked. Moreover, although his Scarlet Beetle Shield was coated with fire spirit energy, the ice energy of the Glacic Scissors was immensely thick. As such, the spirit energy of the Scarlet Beetle Shield had evidently been stifled and shifting it became rather cumbersome.
With a flash across his eyes, Tian Fengzi’s Glacic Scissors once again shot out. Simultaneously, a Beast Slaving Pouch emerged within Tian Fengzi’s hand.
“A Manfaced Frostpid! A lower-tier level 5 demonic beast!”
Following a dazzling radiance, a table sized massive white spider appeared before the eyes of the audience.
Icicles dropped down from this massive white spider, where the 5 facial features of a human could be seen on its hand; looking like an aged old granny.
Seeing that massive white spider, Xin Youlan’s gaze shook a little. On the contrary, an indiscernible conceitedness flashed past Dong Qingyi’s eyes.
A low-tier level 5 demonic beast had a battle capability equivalent to that of a Heavenly Circuit Stage level 2 cultivator.
Furthermore, apart from the large area of attack of its Icicle blast skill technique, its spider threads and mucus could be employed to bound up the opponent’s artifacts. With the appearance of this Manfaced Frostspid, it was practically having two Tian Fengzis squaring off with a single Wei Suo.
After shifting his Scarlet Beetle Shield to block the Glacic Scissors, Wei Suo unhurriedly activated a white talisman.
Within an instant, white spirit mist pervaded out and enshrouded a 63 metre radius around Wei Suo. This was surprisingly just an ordinary rank 2 Cloudmist talisman.
“Is this guy crazy?” This time, even that passerby cultivator who supported Wei Suo berated out loud in shock.
A Cloudmist talisman was normally employed for escaping, and virtually provided zero defensive capabilities.
Furthermore, the rain of icicles unleashed by the Manfaced Frostspid could encompass tens of metres. With a single attack, it could utterly disperse the spirit mist.
