Chapter 1382: Paragon Sky Roc
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
The Immortal King Guyu of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect, was defeated and killed in the challenge battle.
The countenance of Paragon Golden Cauldron was extremely ugly to behold. A terrifyingly sharp aura gushed forth from him, permeating the atmosphere. Guyu was a disciple he heavily favored, and had received a true inheritance from him. His talent was high and his strength wasn't bad, Guyu was someone with enough potential to reach his master's level. However, Guyu had died in a challenge battle like this today.
As the fourth saber slashed down, Guyu didn't even have a chance to flee. From this, one could see that the power of that saber wasn't something Guyu was able to withstand.
"Do you still want to continue? The devil cultivator will still be here, you all can send any initial-stage immortal kings to fight him if you want to." Even before the Paragon Golden Cauldron could erupt with anger, the kirin-masked figure directly spoke out. The face of Paragon Golden Cauldron sank, but he couldn't say anything to refute what just happened.
Guyu didn't even have an opportunity to flee for his life in front of his devil-masked opponent. From this, one could see how overwhelming the combat prowess of his opponent was. Even if their side sent another initial-stage immortal king up, there was no way they would be able to defeat this devil-masked expert.
Since they couldn't win, the Paragon Golden Cauldron naturally wouldn't be silly enough to send people to their deaths just like that.
"BOOM!" Paragon Golden Cauldron suddenly acted. In an instant, at the location Qin Wentian was in, a gigantic golden palm appeared, grabbing outwards with extreme speed, wanting to crush Qin Wentian.
Simultaneously at the same instant, a punch from behind Qin Wentian shattered the void. This punch directly slammed into Paragon Golden Cauldron's palm, the impact causing both the attacks to shatter.
"A paragon character from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect acts this way?" A mocking smile appeared on Qin Wentian's face as he retreated to safety, exuding a carefree charm. Even the people from the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect were surprised. The expert among them wearing an ape mask actually could shatter the attack of Paragon Golden Cauldron with a single strike. Although that was merely a casual attack by Paragon Golden Cauldron, one could still see how strong the expert in the ape mask was.
"The army of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect is stationed here but despite having so many immortal kings, none dare to accept the challenge? How disappointing. Since this is the case, we will bid our farewell then." The kirin-masked expert spoke. Their group then turned and prepared to leave.
"Wanting to leave just like that?" Paragon Golden Cauldron laughed. This was a war and not one-on-one combat. As long immortal emperors couldn't act against immortal kings and immortal kings couldn't act against immortal-foundation characters, they wouldn't be considered to have broken the silent rule.
The masked figures didn't bother and continued on their way, treating this common boundary as empty of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect's forces.
"Kill them!" The Paragon Golden Cauldron coldly shouted. At this moment, numerous auras erupted forth as the peak-stage immortal kings of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect all turned gigantic in form.
When so many peak-stage immortal kings attacked together, the entire sky seemed about to collapse. Destructive might rained down from their powerful techniques but at this moment, many of the masked immortal kings turned about and counter-attacked, causing the space to be filled with countless shadows of palm strikes, numerous beams of sword light and even many summoned gigantic beasts rampaging through the sky.
"RUMBLE!" The thunderous echoes caused the immortal-foundation army to directly lie on the ground. They only felt their eardrums on the verge of exploding. For those weaker ones, they directly bled from all seven apertures and died just like that.
Paragon Golden Cauldron frowned. When he stared at the chaotic immortal-foundation army, his expression was extremely unsightly. They were the ones who initiated an attack and the immortal kings of the other party didn't take the initiative to kill immortal-foundation characters and hence, couldn't be considered to have broken the rule.
In addition, among those masked figures, there were many peak-tier immortal kings.
The masked figures all coldly laughed as they flew away. There were immortal kings who wanted to pursue but Paragon Golden Cauldron stated coldly, "There's no need to chase them."
At the sound of his voice faded, many immortal kings halted. They all had unsightly expressions, were they supposed to let these people go free just like that?
After they killed a disciple of the paragon and the aftershocks of the battle even killed some immortal-foundation characters, were they to simply watch as the culprits got away scot-free?
"Paragon!" There were people turning to Paragon Golden Cauldron and reluctance was plain in their eyes.
"They have so many peak-level immortal kings, it's useless even if we chased them." Paragon Golden Cauldron coldly spoke. Did the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect purposely organize this to cause a disturbance?
The faces of everyone sank, the masked group had several peak-tier immortal kings? If that's the case, it was truly impossible to chase after and hunt them down.
Their Eastern Sage Immortal Sect had a total of four armies and the strength of each army was roughly equal. After many years of governing the thirteen prefectures, although the immortal sect had produced many immortal kings, peak-tier immortal kings were still rare in number. Peak-tier immortal kings are characters that are already near the immortal emperor realm.
"What a pity. Paragon, when would we advance in the war and lay siege to the Cloud Prefecture?" An immortal king asked.
"About time. Most of our strength is being mobilized here and we can soon attack after waiting for a few more people. As long as we completely surround the Cloud Prefecture, it won't be so easy for those experts of the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect to flee even if they want to." Paragon Golden Cauldron's countenance was cold as a powerful killing intent radiated from him.
Doomsday is coming soon for the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect. Very swiftly, this thief that seized the prefectures from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect would soon meet with a calamity.
"Let's wait then. We can only hope for the day to come faster." All the immortal kings had cold looks in their eyes. This time around, the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect directly came over to issue a challenge and held nothing back, slaughtering one of their immortal kings and even managing to leave safely. This was simply looking down on them. This was a humiliation.
"We shall see." Paragon Golden Cauldron nodded, his thoughts mirroring that of his subordinates.
After Qin Wentian and his group left, they didn't directly return to the Cloud Prefecture but chose to head to another location occupied by one of the four Eastern Sage Armies. This army was commanded by an immortal emperor, one of the four paragons under the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, Paragon Sky Roc.
Now, the Paragon Sky Roc is already an immortal emperor.
For the four great paragons under the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, three among them were characters who fought for the empire together with him, they were all as close as brothers and would often temper themselves outside, rarely interfering in matters of the sect. Right now, two immortal emperors were already born. Other than Paragon Sky Roc, there was another one. It was the same immortal emperor whom the White Emperor met when he went to the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect back then.
When Qin Wentian went out together with the other seniors, everyone introduced the rough situation of the four paragons to him. Speaking of which, he could be considered fated with Paragon Sky Roc. During the once a hundred-year recruitment event of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect back then, he obtained a rune bone of the sky roc. This was a treasure from Paragon Sky Roc himself. To think that now, Paragon Sky Roc has already become an emperor.
This time, despite the fact that they were coming into an area controlled by an immortal emperor, Qin Wentian's group acted even more high-profile when compared to earlier. They descended from the air and directly shattered the city gate, walking into the city with an imposing attitude.
Very quickly, the army assembled. Paragon Sky Roc was among them and these people naturally had already sensed their arrival.
"The disciples of the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect pays our respects to senior Paragon Sky Roc." Everyone spoke straightforwardly, not planning to avoid this immortal emperor.
Although this army was led by an immortal emperor, there was no way the immortal emperor would personally act against them. If not, they would all die together. If an immortal emperor from the Eastern Sage Sect decided to break the rules and kill their people here, Bai Wuya and the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord could similarly annihilate the immortal kings and immortal-foundation characters of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect.
"Swish~" A raging wind gusted as a sky roc soared into the air. A moment later, the sky roc transformed into a black-robed human, standing there arrogantly with a bone-chilling loftiness in his eyes.
"We greet senior." Although the people of the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect came here in such a high-profile manner, they didn't forget to be courteous.
Paragon Sky Roc didn't say anything, merely looking coldly at them.
"Today we came here because we wish to challenge the immortal kings of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect in one-on-one combat. I wonder if senior is willing to accept the challenge?" The kirin-masked figure smiled, this situation was similar to back when they were at the area controlled by Paragon Golden Cauldron.
"Since you all want a challenge, I will naturally accompany you guys to the end." Paragon Sky Roc's voice was tinged with arrogance. He was a true ancient paragon and was an immortal emperor expert. He naturally had to protect the pride of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect. Since the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect sent forces to challenge the army under his control, how could he not accept this challenge?
Qin Wentian walked out again while releasing his aura. "Junior is an initial-stage immortal king. Please guide me."
"Who is willing to accept this challenge battle?" Paragon Sky Roc spoke. After that, a junior immortal king at the initial-stage walked out. This person radiated coldness, and the temperature around him plunged. When he stared at Qin Wentian, it was like he wanted to freeze Qin Wentian with a single look.
"I'm willing to." That person spoke.
"Please." Qin Wentian smiled. Vast amounts of devil might gushed forth as a devil saber once again appeared in his hands. Boundless destructive energy congregated around him.
"Ice seal!" At this moment, the other party spoke. The space around them was instantly frozen solid, including Qin Wentian within. The power of frost threatened to turn him into an ice statue.
"BOOM!" The destructive energy around Qin Wentian erupted forth, shattering the ice around him. After that, the frost and ice actually churned wildly within a tornado and transformed into numerous ice spears that shot out like white lightning, aiming for Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian transformed into a shadow, his movements inconceivably quick as his saber slashed out many attacks, breaking apart the ice spears. In the direction his saber was swung, countless ice statues were shattered as he rushed out of the area the ice domain.
Just as he was about to rush out, his opponent flicked a finger strike over, causing ripples to appear in the ice domain. These ripples expanded in size and actually corroded the devil saber that materialized in Qin Wentian's hand. After that, an ice statue melted down to water vapor and swept over towards Qin Wentian.
In this ice domain, there was actually also the law-attribute of corrosion.
"BOOM!" A terrifying divine glow shimmered around Qin Wentian, formed from his multiple law-attribute energies. With a lift of his hand, he blasted out a palm strike, the tyrannical destructive might gushing forth easily evaporated the water vapor. He then continued forward, ignoring the corrosion energy, choosing to strike head-on with his opponent, as he radiated an intense killing intent. He didn't mind achieving his objective even if he was injured.
The other immortal king furrowed his brows, clearly he wasn't willing to risk his life. He chose to retreat but given such a close distance as well as the speed of Qin Wentian's attack, there was no way for him to evade at all. The palm strike of Qin Wentian slammed right into him, causing him to scream in misery as Qin Wentian channelled destructive might into his opponent's body, ravaging the interior of it.
Qin Wentian was also forced back a few steps from the impact, his body similarly suffering the effects of corrosion while a look of panic appeared on his face.
"This crafty little fellow." Upon seeing this, the masked experts all laughed silently. Qin Wentian was pretending to be weak!
