The entire martial practice grounds grew silent for a moment.
Earlier, from Sui Fu’s grandeur display and his move, other than the Hundred Flowers Palace’s people who knew about the Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, all of the other people had thought that Sui Fu would win. However now…
Sui Fu, who had been bound and was struggling unceasingly, illustrated everything.
“Qin Yu’s party against the Xue Yu’s party. First battle, Xue Yu’s party is victorious.” Huangfu Liejun was merely stunned for a moment before reacting. “The second battle shall begin now. The Mid Level Heavenly Deity from Xue Yu’s party against the Mid Level Heavenly Deity from Qin Yu’s party.”
Right after those words were said, the ten thousand plus people that surrounded the martial practice grounds once again grew noisy.
The first battle from earlier had indeed surprised them.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu smiled as he looked to the Hundred Flowers Godking beside him. He said. “Liuxiang, you have truly exerted yourself. You actually allowed a Low Level Heavenly Deity to use the Grandmist Spiritual Treasure ‘Heaven Binding Rope.’”
The Hundred Flowers Godking Huangfu Liuxing merely slightly smiled. She indifferently said. “Second brother, it is not strange for me to lend a second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure to my people. Merely, this Qin Yu, he was surprisingly able to take out a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact. That had instead shocked me.”
High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts.
They were extremely rare. The expert artifact craftsmen that were able to craft High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts were also not many.
Even for High Level Heavenly Deities, only a small section of them possessed High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts. Many High Level Heavenly Deities still used Mid Level Heavenly Divine Artifacts.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor slightly smiled and said. “He is capable of deploying a formation array space. With such a level of ability in formation arrays, I reckon he must’ve also have a formation array expert who provided him with guidance. It cannot be regarded as strange for him to possess a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact. Well, enough about that, the second battle is about to start.”
The Utmost East Sage Emperor and the Hundred Flowers Godking both looked to the martial practice grounds. As for the Gold Sword Godking, he had been silent since the beginning. He was merely watching all that was unfolding in the martial practice grounds.
“Master can rest assured. Even if my opponent possess a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, this subordinate will still definitely win! At the very most, it might cost me a couple clones.” A faint red light flashed past Tan Jiu’s eyes.
Qin Yu lightly nodded. “If you win, then that High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact shall be yours.”
Qin Yu possessed four High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts. He planned to bestow them to his subordinates to begin with. As Qiuzhong Fu already possessed a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact of his own, bestowing a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact to Tan Jiu was something that Qin Yu had long planned to do.
Black Dragon Tan Jiu lightly nodded. He then proceeded to directly walk toward the center of the martial practice grounds. A white clothed woman was already standing in the center of the martial practice ground.
This white clothed woman had a cold and indifferent expression.
The Nine-headed Black Dragon Tan Jiu had a head of short scarlet hair and scarlet sword brows. Underneath his eyebrows were a pair of gloomy eyes. Those gloomy eyes were currently emitting a very sharp aura. In terms of gloominess and coldness, that white clothed woman was actually inferior to Tan Jiu.
“This battle, you are definitely going to lose!” Tan Jiu pointed at the white clothed woman and said.
That white clothed woman merely sneered in disdain. With a flip of her hand, she took out a jade green colored sword. Once this jade green colored sword appeared, the attention of everyone in the surrounding of the martial practice grounds were focused on it.
From Xue Yu’s party, a mere Low Level Heavenly Deity was capable of taking out a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
Then what about this Mid Level Heavenly Deity?
Not only them, even the Utmost East Sage Emperor had taken note of this jade green colored sword. Qin Yu was the same. Merely, that jade green colored sword was too far from Qin Yu. Thus, he was unable to determine exactly what grade it was.
“High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact. Haha, Liuxiang, why didn’t you continue lending Grandmist Spiritual Treasures?” Said the Utmost East Sage Emperor to the Hundred Flowers Godking.
The Gold Sword Godking who had been silent the entire time spoke. “Liuxiang lending a single Grandmist Spiritual Treasure has already caused the competition to be biased. If she were to lend another one, then it would be too excessive. I believe Liuxing herself only possesses two second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasures, right?”
“That’s right, big brother. I have lent a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure to Xue Yu. As for who she lends it to use for the competition, it was a decision that Xue Yu herself made.” When the Hundred Flowers Godking talked with the Gold Sword Godking, she did not joke around in the slightest.
The Gold Sword Godking lightly nodded.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor took a glance at Xue Yu in the distant. “This girl Xue Yu was actually a bit scheming. Eh, that Mid Level Heavenly Deity subordinate of Qin Yu, that weapon of his is truly peculiar.”
The other two Godkings also looked over.
At this moment, Tan Jiu had taken out the heavy sword that Qin Yu had given him. As Tan Jiu held this enormous heavy sword, it suddenly split into three. As for Tan Jiu, he had also turned into nine people.
The nine clones of Tan Jiu, three of them held the split sections of the High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact. As for the other six, they held six black sticks.
From different directions, the nine Tan Jiu’s speed violently reached the pinnacle. Like nine sharp arrows, the nine Tan Jiu’s shot toward the white clothed woman. The white clothed woman’s expression changed. She never anticipated that her opponent would have nine clones. It was truly too frightening.
Six black sticks were simultaneously smashed toward the white clothed woman. The white clothed woman waved the sword in her hand. Six sword silhouettes shot out. These sword silhouettes blocked the six stick silhouettes.
“Hooh~~” Tan Jiu’s seventh clone held a battle blade shaped High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact. Ruthlessly, he hacked down.
The white clothed woman grew anxious. She tried to use Spatial Domain. Merely, her opponent’s nine clones all used their Spatial Domains at the same time and possessed a big stronger control over the space than her.
Confronted with this incoming blade strike, the white clothed woman did not have enough time to dodge.
“Bang!” The ground underneath the white clothed woman was slightly jolted. The entire surface of the martial practice grounds was slightly trembling. However, the surface of the martial practice grounds was not damaged in the slightest.
The enormous heavy sword was turned into two battle blades and a battle sword.
“Hooh~~!” Tan Jiu’s eighth clone followed right behind his seventh clone and also ruthlessly hack down with the battle blade in his hand.
The white clothed woman was unable to recover her Heavenly Divine Energy in time. All she could do was to once again take the attack head on.
“Puchi!” The sharp battle sword directly pierced through the white clothed woman’s body.
“If you continue to resist, I’ll certainly kill you.” Said Tan Jiu via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission.
The white clothed woman looked to the Tan Jiu before her who held a battle sword in his hand. She then looked to the other eight Tan Jiu’s who were holding battle blades and black sticks. She then looked to the battle sword that had pierced her chest. Her expression changed several times.
The gap between them were truly too great!
A High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact that can split into different parts and a Tan Jiu that could split into nine different Tan Jiu’s, they were indeed a perfect match for each other.
“For this round, we admit our defeat!” Suddenly, a voice sounded from the side of the martial practice grounds.
The person who spoke was precisely Xue Yu.
The white clothed woman placed away the heavy sword in her hand. She glanced at Tan Jiu and then walked away silently. When she walked over to Xue Yu’s side, this white clothed woman fell forward onto Xue Yu’s shoulder and started crying!
“Xue Yi, do not grieve. Your opponent’s strength indeed surpassed my anticipation. That High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact of his was also extremely miraculous. You cannot blame yourself for losing.” Consoled Xue Yu.
And at this moment, Huangfu Liejun’s voice sounded.
“This battle, the victor is Qin Yu’s party. Currently, the two parties each achieved a single victory. The upcoming battle is the most important third battle. The two people competing are the two candidates for the Palace Master position… Qin Yu and Xue Yu. Well then, begin battle!”
Everyone in the surroundings of the martial practice grounds held their breaths.
The two candidates for the Palace Master position, Qin Yu and Xue Yu, were both upper echelons of Mount Dazzling Gold. Everyone was carefully watching this battle.
Qin Yu and Xue Yu silently walked toward the center of the martial practice grounds from the two sides.
“Miss Xue Yu.” Qin Yu bowed and said.
Xue Yu also lightly smiled. “Mister Qin Yu, it would seem that I will lose to you today. Merely, even though I will be losing, I still want to experience the legendary formation array space.”
Qin Yu slightly nodded.
Xue Yu was about to attack when Qin Yu closed his eyes. A tranquil and peaceful smiling expression appeared on his face. He had entered the profound heaven and earth splitting state of mind.
He gently waved his hand across. Several rays of light flew out from Qin Yu’s hand.
Everyone present in the martial practice grounds was watching this scene with their eyes wide open. Even the Three Great Godkings were carefully paying attention to this. Although they had heard about the formation array space, they had never personally seen Qin Yu deploying it before.
Those several rays of lights were incomparably dazzling. Like meteors, they fell on the boundary of the martial practice grounds.
“Formation array ‘Universe,’ form!”
While smiling, Qin Yu opened his eyes. The smile on his face was a smile of confidence. It was the confidence that Qin Yu had for his own formation array space.
The speed at which Qin Yu deployed the formation array was truly too fast. Before Xue Yu could even attack, she was already caught in Qin Yu’s formation array space.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor, Hundred Flowers Godking and Gold Sword Godking’s eyes all started shining simultaneously. All three of them were staring at Qin Yu with deep gazes.
“Did you see that clearly?” The Utmost East Sage Emperor said.
The Hundred Flowers Godking and the Gold Sword Godking both nodded. With a gaze filled with surprise, the Hundred Flowers Godking said. “Never had I imagined before that someone would be able to reach such a level in formation arrays. Especially when he was deploying the formation array. The space where the formation array was located at seemed to even have a slight change.”
“It’s very peculiar. It’s completely different from the space that we can create through using the spatial law.” The Gold Sword Godking said.
“Perhaps this is the miraculousness of formation arrays.” The Utmost East Sage Emperor smiled. “Although this Qin Yu’s formation array space is slightly different from our own spaces, its might was not a bit weaker than our spaces.”
Whether it was the Utmost East Sage Emperor or the other two Godkings, they all didn’t know that… the reason why Qin Yu’s formation array space was different from the space that they could create was because Qin Yu’s formation array space was created through using the spatial laws of the Universal World.
As the spatial laws of the two worlds were different, there were naturally some differences even though they would both be able to create spaces.
These Three Great Godkings thought that the usual formation array space was exactly like how Qin Yu’s formation array space was. After all, since times immemorial, there had yet to be anyone else who was capable of deploying a formation array space. Even the Craftsman God Chehou Yuan only managed to reach a level close to deploying a formation array space.
The Gold Sword Godking that seldom spoke actually spoke a couple words today.
“With this formation array space, this Qin Yu, he is the number one individual beneath the Godkings!” After the God Sword Godking finished saying this sentence, he closed his mouth and said no more.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor looked at the Hundred Flowers Godking. The Hundred Flowers Godking slightly smiled and said. “I have no objection to this Qin Yu becoming the Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace. I am truly curious, with his level of formation array, if he were to research artifact craftsmanship, would he be able to surpass the Craftsman God in the field of artifact crafting?!”
And at this moment, Xue Yu was caught in the formation array space.
“This is?” Xue Yu looked to her surroundings in shock.
Xue Yu still remembered that back then when the Hundred Flowers Godking gave her guidance, she had once created a space that trapped her. That sort of feeling was exactly the same as now. They were both boundless worlds.
“Qin Yu.” Xue Yu looked to her front. At this moment, Qin Yu appeared before her.
Qin Yu smiled and said. “Xue Yu, it is impossible for you to break through my formation array space.” As Qin Yu smiled, the space surrounding him crumbled and was then instantly restored.
As he was speaking and smiling, the world surrounding him became covered with storms and numerous other disasters
Of course, this was all within the range of the formation array space. Merely, because Xue Yu had been caught in the formation array space, she could only give herself up and allow Qin Yu to trample upon her. It was only possible for her to escape if she were a Godking, then she would be able to break through the formation array space through the use of the spatial law.
Seeing this scene before her, Xue Yu sighed in her heart. She knew that she would undoubtedly lose.
Xue Yu looked at Qin Yu. Suddenly, she smiled and said. “Mister Qin Yu, I originally thought that I might be able to win. I gave the only Grandmist Spiritual Treasure to my side’s Low Level Heavenly Deity to use. With that, I have guaranteed the win for that round. I then borrowed a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact for my side’s Mid Level Heavenly Deity to use. However, even then, I still lost. Firstly, I have lost to your great formation array. Secondly, I have lost because… you actually possessed two High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts?”
In the Hundred Flowers Palace, Xue Yu possessed enough connections to allow her to borrow a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact.
However, the number of people that Qin Yu knew on Mount Dazzling Gold was truly too small. For him to have his subordinates use two High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts, this was truly shocking.
“High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts? They were left behind for me by my senior.” Qin Yu said directly.
Xue Yu nodded in understanding. “So that was the case. May I ask… might that senior of yours be the person who taught Mister Qin Yu the path of formation arrays?”
“He could be considered as so.” Qin Yu nodded.
Xue Yu slightly nodded. “Mister Qin Yu, I admit my defeat. You can let me out.”
In an instant, the heaven and earth suddenly started turning. The entire world changed. The originally boundless world had disappeared. What appeared before them was the lively martial practice grounds.
All of the Heavenly Deities in the martial practice grounds looked at Qin Yu and Xue Yu. Seeing Xue Yu and Qin Yu suddenly appear before them, they were unable to determine whether it was Xue Yu who broke through the great formation array or Qin Yu who let her out.
“I concede.” Xue Yu’s voice sounded through the entire marital practice grounds.
The entire martial practice grounds immediately started becoming noisy. A large number of Heavenly Deities started discussing with one another. Xue Yu had actually admitted defeat. That Mister Qin Yu actually won!
“The first series of contest have concluded. Qin Yu’s party has obtained victory. Now, the second series shall begin. Qin Yu’s party against Dong Hou’s party.” Huangfu Liejun’s clear voice sounded.
Qin Yu’s gaze was turned toward Dong Hou.
The next target was Dong Hou.
Dong Hou suddenly spoke. “There is no need for the second series of competition. Our side admit our defeat. Mister Qin Yu’s formation array space has already convinced me. I am afraid there is no one beneath the Godking stage that is capable of breaking this formation array.”
All of the people in the martial practice grounds grew silent. All of the Heavenly Deities were looking at Dong Hou. They were thinking that, no matter what, at the very least he should compete first. However, the reality was that Dong Hou had straightforwardly admitted his defeat.
“This Dong Hou knows very well of his own standing.” The Utmost East Sage Emperor slightly nodded.
Dong Hou’s subordinates did not possess any Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. While he also managed to, with great difficulty, borrow a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact for his Mid Level Heavenly Deity, his Low Level Heavenly Deity only possessed a Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact. If he were to fight against Qin Yu’s party with that level of strength, it was likely that his side would not even be able to win a single round. In that case, he figured it was better to straightforwardly admit his defeat so that he could appear magnanimous.
“I’ve won?” Hearing Dong Hou’s surrender, Qin Yu was also startled.
He had originally thought he would have another series of battles. However, it now appeared that the position of Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace had already fallen on his head.
