Chapter 683: Glory
Translator: _Tat_ Editor: Rundi
Since the conception of the Competition of the Four Paths, the competition has existed for hundreds of thousands of years.
Throughout this time, only two Heaven’s Favorites have won the winning title under two paths and only one had won the winning title under three paths. However, there has never been a heaven-defying monster who’s won all four.
This was because it was just far too difficult to achieve that.
To be skilled in two was a hard thing to achieve and to be good in three was rarely seen. Though the world is big and many geniuses exist, it is hard to find someone who’s good at everything. Someone who’s a beast in all four categories is basically a myth. Those people only come up once in a few hundred thousand years.
Yet before everyone’s eyes, one was standing right before them. How unbelievable was this?
It could only be described as heaven-defying!
If no powerhouse showed up at this year’s competition, then it would be whatever. People would just be shocked at Ling Xian’s talent in all areas. However, this competition composed of many geniuses and this was one of the most competitive seasons in history.
Look at all the opponents he was up against, Xiang Ru Gu from the Path of Craft had broken through to the sixth realm and was known to be very capable.
Hong Luo Zhuang from the Path of Alchemy was the strongest descendant of the Hong Clan. Out of the entire younger generation in Yuezhou, she would be considered to be amongst the top three. Even the older generation alchemists do not possess the level of skills she had.
Ta Ba Feng from the Path of Arrays was already of the master realm. Though he wasn’t the strongest out of the entire younger generation in Yuezhou, he was close to it.
Finally, Leng Feng from the Path of Cultivation was a cultivator who defeated groups of descendants and was so capable he had the undefeatable mentality.
These four people were all rare talents that only come by once every few centuries. They were all extremely talented in their own realms.
Yet before Ling Xian, the four of them could only look up to him and admit their defeat against him. How unbelievable was this?
This has proven him to be extremely capable!
In other words, for him to have won under all four paths was deserving!
Thus, after everyone expressed how shocked they were, the entire place boiled in passion.
Everyone chimed in to speak their thoughts. They cheered for his true capabilities and cheered for his ability to become a pioneer.
“Hahaha, he had won the grand slam! He is now a pioneer! Xian Ling sure is heaven-defying!”
“How insane. Not only is he capable under all four paths, but he also destroyed everyone in those paths. This is unbelievable!”
“To have won the winning title under all four paths! We finally have someone who could do it all. Xian Ling sure is out of this world.”
“He is more than that. He is limitless! In the entire world, since the history of time, who could achieve what he achieved?”
Everyone was cheering and exclaiming. They were proud of Ling Xian’s achievement and were shocked by it.
What could they do? Winning under all four paths was far too astonishing. Though it’s been a while since it happened, they couldn’t stop feeling surprised.
Even the four peak leaders and the three grandmasters of the professional paths were astounded at this turn of events. They didn’t think Ling Xian would really become a pioneer.
“Unbelievable. I cannot believe this man really did it.”
“It’s been hundreds and thousands of years since the Competition of the Four Paths started. Nobody had been able to do what he did. This young man is far too insane.”
“He truly is multi-talented. To be so young and to be so accomplished on all four paths is truly heaven-defying.”
“His name will forever be imprinted in the historical records of the Shang Qing Sect. Even if our descendants forget about us, forget about the Supreme Headmaster, nobody would be able to forget about him.”
All the important figures were expressing their opinions with disbelief in their voices.
As much as they were bewildered, the four peak leaders’ emotions were also complex. They felt like they were just slapped in the face.
Because when Ling Xian was choosing which path to specialize in, he had personally rejected the cultivation path and instead, chose the Path of Crafts.
That angered the four peak leaders and they said he was wasting his talent and that he would regret that decision.
Yet now, Ling Xian had achieved something nobody has been able to for thousands of years. This meant his talents with alchemy, array, and crafts did not pale next to his cultivation.
In other words, he didn’t make a mistake back then.
This was why the four peak leaders had complex emotions and felt like they were slapped in the face.
Just like them, everyone felt a mix of emotions.
Even before the competition started, the majority of the people inside the Shang Qing Sect was certain that the winners of the competition would end up going to the four geniuses under their respective paths.
Yet halfway through, an unknown person intruded and disrupted all their guesses.
Not only did he disrupt one of them, he disrupted all four!
Thus, why wouldn’t everyone feel complex? But in the end, all their mix emotions turned into a soft sigh.
What a multi-talented Heaven’s Favorite.
“I won the grand slam and became a pioneer.”
Ling Xian had a soft smile on his lips. He was somewhat proud and somewhat excited.
Because not only did this mean his name will be forever remembered inside the Shang Qing Sect, it also meant he would receive as high as 200,000 contribution points and four days at the Cliff of Enlightenment.
The 200,000 contribution points don’t need any more explanation because it meant he was one step closer to acquiring the greatest treasure of the Shang Qing Sect. But the chance to stay at the cliff of enlightenment was rarer. With his enlightenment abilities, he will truly have many breakthroughs!
Thus, why wouldn’t Ling Xian be satisfied?
“Even though the process of this competition had been a headache, overall this was easy. Plus, I acquired so many astonishing gains. This trip was very worthwhile.”
Ling Xian smiled in satisfaction, now firmly believing that partaking in this competition was the right decision.
Or else how could he have gotten so many gains?
As satisfied as he was, he suddenly remembered the woman, Yu Wu Xiu. He couldn’t help but mumble, “I bet when this piece of news travels to where you are, you will impatiently find me to steal my talent.”
Then, a mysterious smile crawled onto his lips. It was cold and also taunting.
“This was the result I wanted to see. I hope you will come to my front door.”
Mumbling, Ling Xian stopped thinking about that. After all, he was certain that after hearing about what he did at this competition, Yu Wu Xiu will make her move.
“The competition had come to an end. It is time for me to get all my rewards.”
Ling Xian smiled and leaped into the air. He walked slowly towards the four peak leaders and the three grandmasters.
At this, those people smiled. They looked at him praisingly and with some shock.
It was obvious that his heaven-defying actions had overtaken the admiration of these important figures.
“It’s perfect that everyone’s here. I am here to collect my rewards.” Ling Xian spoke with a grin.
“When you asked me to keep your rewards safe, I had guessed that you were going to the other competitions. But I never would’ve guessed that you would end up winning everything.”
The Leader of the Path of Alchemy exclaimed and made a statement that once again brought everyone into a state of shock.
“I am guessing that from tomorrow onward, your nickname of being a dual genius in array and crafts is going to become the ultimate genius who’s skilled in all four paths.”
