This time, it was one of the cultivators residing in the mountain range that discovered the entrance by chance. And because his cultivation base was too low, he had no confidence he could enter it. Instead, he would rather choose to trade this secret away for a sum of wealth and hence, the chosen from the various major powers all descended upon the area.
Right now at the mountain range, several dazzling characters showed up one after another. All of them were geniuses of their respective sects or clans, and were the blazing suns of their generation.
From the Yin Clan, even Yin Cheng’s elder brother, Yin Ting, had arrived. Yin Ting and Yin Cheng were both demon-level geniuses, and were considered as extraordinary characters within the Yin Clan.
Jin Yan from the Golden Fire Aristocrat Clan was the elder cousin of Jin Zhan. His combat strength was extremely terrifying and an entire level above Jin Zhan.
Feng Yunhe from the Wind Roc Aristocrat Clan had fame equal to Jin Yan.
Jian Jingtian’s sword arts were unfathomable, and he possessed the glorious title of the number one swordsman of the younger generation in the Heaven Shocking Sword Sect.
Besides them, those that came from other major powers were also extremely famous characters. They didn’t attend the Treasure Seizing Assembly, but when news of the hidden realm reached them, there was no way they would miss this chance.
There were too many secrets hidden in the Heavenly Mountains. A hidden realm represented a huge stroke of fortune, and to many demon-level geniuses, it was not something they wanted to miss out on.
Jin Yan landed on the ground, his eyes staring at Jin Zhan’s injuries. “I heard that you were injured by someone, who was it?”
Jin Zhan lowered his head in shame when he heard this. He then replied in a low voice, “I don’t know his name, but it was a young man clad in white.”
“What was his cultivation base?” Jin Yan asked, staring straight at Jin Zhan. He had heard that the person was only at the third level of Heavenly Dipper, but he wanted to hear it personally from Jin Zhan’s mouth.
“I think, third level of Heavenly Dipper.” Jin Zhan’s expression looked extremely unsightly as he forced the words out. A third level Heavenly Dipper hadn’t even attacked him, he merely took a few steps forwards to crush him. That battle was like a dark stain that would never be wiped away.
“Tell me if he appears again,” Jin Yan emotionlessly spoke, feeling somewhat disappointed in Jin Zhan. After all, Jin Zhan was a talent nurtured by their clan, yet as someone at the fourth level of Heavenly Dipper, he was completely crushed by someone with a weaker cultivation base. After this matter, Jin Zhan dared not relay such feedback to the clan. Evidently, he was too ashamed to do so.
At the same time, Yin Ting appeared beside Yin Cheng. He stared at him and asked, “He used the will of his Mandate and defeated you as well?”
“Yes, that Mandate felt extremely strange—it was able to attack my mind directly.” Yin Cheng was also embarrassed. Qin Wentian’s attacks were too unusual, it could disregard anything and attack his sea of consciousness directly.
“You must have sent people to monitor his movements?” Naturally, Yin Ting was clear on what sort of person Yin Cheng was.
“Mhm.” Yin Cheng nodded.
“Are you not confident?” Yin Ting asked again.
“That man is proficient in Divine Inscriptions. Earlier, Grandmaster Qiu ventured into the cavern where that person was staying in and never ventured out again. Now, my men are just monitoring his movements, and they don’t dare to make any reckless moves,” Yin Cheng replied.
“Both of you work together to capture him. After that, meet up with me.” Yin Ting turned his gaze onto the two other cultivators behind him. Yin Cheng waved his hands as one of his spies instantly led the two men under Yin Ting over to Qin Wentian’s location.
After some time, the gazes of everyone fell onto a hawk-eyed, middle-aged man—the one who wished to sell the information.
“Since everyone has arrived, let’s move out,” Shang Yue stated, while the others nodded in agreement. Earlier, they’d been forced to wait there because all of them wanted the seller to lead the way. No one was allowed to make the first move, hence they had to wait until all the buyers were gathered.
In addition, they all came to an agreement. They would inform their respective sects and clans of this matter, allowing more members of the various powers to gather. This way, the degree of danger faced would be reduced. Also, according to the agreement, only those at the fifth-level of Heavenly Dipper could participate. No one was to renege on this condition.
The reason for this was because it was well understood that in the face of priceless treasures, there was always the risk of an open war among the various geniuses of the major powers. Hence, it was only fair to limit the cultivation bases of those participating at the fifth-level—it wouldn’t do if a particular power were to send experts at a higher level, thereby effortlessly suppressing the members of the other powers.
Furthermore, they naturally understood that in the case of an uncontrollable situation occurring in the hidden realm, or even the appearance of a heaven-defying treasure, they could then send men to report this matter and await further reinforcements inside the hidden realm.
This was the rule that had been jointly set by the major powers of Xuan King City.
As for the other smaller powers, they didn’t even have the qualifications to participate.
‘Everyone, please.” The hawk-eyed man led the way, moving ahead into the depths of the Heavenly Mountain. The spectators watched from afar, and not of one of them dared to follow. They could only curse silently in their hearts at the tyranny of those from the major powers. Every time a hidden realm appeared, ordinary cultivators with no backing had no chance to participate.
Qin Wentian’s gaze swept over everything—in that moment he could feel a sense of pressure locking down on him. There were a total of six auras at the fifth-level of Heavenly Dipper currently moving towards him. Such a strong formation just to deal with him? They truly thought highly of him.
“Since a hidden realm has appeared, how can I not join in on the fun?” Qin Wentian laughed. And with blinding speed, he turned and dashed off in a certain direction.
The silently approaching experts naturally sensed Qin Wentian’s movements. They further increased their speed and shot towards his direction, intending to surround him before he gave them the slip.
Qin Wentian’s speed only accelerated. After he flew past a mountain peak, he descended down into a misty valley.
“Hmph.” The six experts all had cold smiles on their faces as they mirrored Qin Wentian’s movements. Right now, they no longer bothered to conceal their intentions. Their auras exploded forth as they dashed after him at a frantic pace.
A few moments later, Qin Wentian stood upon a huge rock at the bottom of the valley. Beside him were the sheer cliffs and stone walls of the mountain. The six pursuers all zoomed towards him, trapping him inside a circle as each of their astral novas exploded into being.
Qin Wentian suddenly felt his body sinking deeper into the ground, feeling a great sense of discomfort from the overwhelming pressure.
“BOOM!” One of the six stepped out towards Qin Wentian, his aura causing the blood in Qin Wentian’s body to surge, as though about to burst out of his body.
“KILL!” An ominous-looking sword appeared above the head of another. The sword nova emitted a blinding light, so dazzling that the people couldn’t even keep their eyes open.
The people attacked at the same time, and instantly unleashed their respective wills of Mandates towards him, causing Qin Wentian to silently lament at the fearsomeness of Stellar Martial Cultivators. He could feel how terrifying a threat they posed.
If it were a one-on-one battle, he could still fight evenly, or even possess an advantage against his opponent. But when the multiple streams of wills of Mandates gushed out together, their fused power could instantly crush any opponent, especially considering that his cultivation base was lower compared to theirs.
Soaring in the air, a demonic scaled armor began to envelop Qin Wentian as the demon blood within him started to seeth and surge. He took on an appearance similar to the overlord of demons, that handsome-looking young man in white instantly demonified, invoking a primal fear in those who saw it.
The Demon Sovereign Astral Soul appeared and instantly formed an innate connection with the Demon Sovereign Constellation up in the Heavenly Layers. Starlight cascaded downwards as several demonic beasts manifested around Qin Wentian. These were all demonic beasts at the fourth-level of Heavenly Dipper, each exuding a terrifyingly baleful aura. As one, they formed a protective wall around Qin Wentian, who stood right in the middle, blocking the pervasive wills of Mandates from the six experts.
“A summon-type Astral Soul.” The eyes of the six gleamed with sharpness as they studied Qin Wentian. After which, one among them hollered, “DO IT!”
As the voice faded, the six experts directly unleashed their most powerful techniques towards Qin Wentian, who was currently being protected by the demonic beasts. Each of their ultimate attacks were fused with the wills of their Mandate and could effortlessly slay cultivators at the fourth-level of Heavenly Dipper.
“All of you can just stay here forever.”
Qin Wentian stared at the six experts rushing over as his eyes erupted with a beam of cold light. His King Sword Astral Nova appeared. Wielding it in his grasp, he impaled its blade right into the huge rock he was standing at. A moment later, the rock crumbled to dust as hymns of sword melody surrounded the entire space. The eyes of the six experts all widened with shock, and they hurriedly unleashed various innate techniques in an attempt to block the sword melody’s attack.
However, considering how fast their speed was, as soon as they dashed towards Qin Wentian, they were already within Qin Wentian’s attack range. Instantly, the summoned beasts directly pounced at them while Qin Wentian repeatedly slammed his palms in the air, causing the sounds of ancient bells to echo out and mingle together with the sword melody.
The sword melody’s laceration effects were powered by the pulverizing force of the Heartbreak Echo. The experts felt their hearts reacting uncontrollably, pounding with increasing intensity.
However, in that same instant, Qin Wentian took a step forward and unleashed the Seven Annihilations Swordplay. One step, one annihilation.
The six experts were already clashing with the summoned beasts. Despite their power, the beasts couldn’t stand up to the might of the experts, and weren’t able to block their way entirely.
“Die.” Qin Wentian’s palms continued to blast out, executing the Heartbreaking Echo. He then took another step forward as an even more fearsome killing intent swept over everything in the vicinity. By now, the hearts of the six experts were pounding at such speed and were almost at risk of leaping out of their chests.
Qin Wentian grabbed the hilt of his King Sword and took a third step forward as countless beams of light inundated the area.
“AROOO!” One of the summoned beasts was slaughtered by an expert. That person emanated a fearsome killing intent as he stared at Qin Wentian. Given this person’s talent, he would definitely be a threat to their sects if he was allowed to grow. They must slay him now.
But just then, Qin Wentian had already completed his fourth step. Endless amounts of sword intent ravaged the area. It felt as though Qin Wentian was in command of the entirety of sword qi present in this world. The sword qi coagulated into a gigantic sword that flew towards the expert.
A gigantic axe appeared in the hands of that expert. With a violent shout, the axe cleaved downwards, colliding with the gigantic sword flying his way. The impact of their collision forced him backwards as the qi and blood within his body roiled in total chaos. He then howled with anger, “We must not let this person survive any longer! KILL HIM!”
“Pu, pu…” The astral warbeasts died, one after another. Qin Wentian’s aura continued to climb as he took the fifth step. The instant his foot landed, the entire space seemed to transform into a sword forest that trapped the six powerful experts within. Their expressions were incomparably ugly—this sword technique was too unfathomable and was packed with overwhelming power.
They hesitated no more and tried to break out, slaughtered their way towards Qin Wentian. Yet they could sense an incomparable terrifying sword energy blocking their path. The King Sword Astral Nova that Qin Wentian wielded in his hands gleamed with a cold light. He imperiously peered downwards at them as he took his sixth step forwards.
The sword forest was bombarded by the piercing winds and hails of rain. Under the endless sword intent, their bodies were lacerated as blood flowed unceasingly. Their faces were all masks of despair.
“NOOOO…” Unwilling roars echoed out, one after the other. Qin Wentian’s countenance was ice-cold as he cleaved downwards with his King Sword. The next instant, the six experts were completely pulverized into nothingness.
His King Sword Astral Nova was retracted back into his Yuanfu and with a wave of his arms, the interspatial rings of the experts flew towards him. In the next instant, Little Rascal transformed into its enlarged form as he mounted it.
With a foreboding light in his eyes, Qin Wentian shot straight in the direction where the various chosen were gathering!
