On the other side of the arena, there was no one there yet.
“Where is No. 364, Xuanmiao Courtyard’s Pan Tianfeng? If you don’t come up to the arena now, you will be regarded as giving up.” After the Crystallization Period deputy waited for a while, his face became gloomy. He then raised his voice again.
As soon as this remark came out, there was a burst of whispering among the crowd watching.
“Stop calling, I’m here.” At this moment, a white and fat young man in a silver brocade robe appeared in the arena in a flash.
As soon as this person stepped onto the arena, it caused a commotion below the arena.
“It is said that although this Pan Tianfeng is at the Condensation Period later stage, his strength is not inferior to the Crystallization Period cultivator. I don’t know if it is true or not.
“Brother, your statement is a bit wrong. Although I don’t know his true strength, Pan Family is still a notable family in our sect. It is said that Pan Tianfeng can reach the Condensation Period later stage at the age of 20, most of the reason is because of the precious spiritual power enhancement elixirs provided by his family.”
While there was a lot of discussion in the audience, Pan Tianfeng didn’t even glance at Liu Ming on the opposite side. He flicked his sleeve, and a small black hammer was already in his hand. He spoke arrogantly,
“I’m Xuanmiao Courtyard Pan Tianfeng, you don’t have to tell me your name. I will use this victory today to test my newly purchased spiritual weapon.”
Before Liu Ming answered, his pupils shrank and looked at the black hammer in the young man’s hand. He was slightly startled.
He sold this little hammer for 2 million spirit stones in the market a few days ago, and the shopkeeper of the forging shop seemed to have the surname Pan.
After thinking quickly, Liu Ming looked at Pan Tianfeng on the opposite side. He couldn’t help smiling slightly.
Pan Tianfeng was enraged seeing this. He made gestures with both hands and poured all his spiritual power into the small black hammer. He then shook his wrist and threw the small hammer into the air.
As the small black hammer trembled, it released a bright black light abruptly. It turned into 10 meters in size, and the dense black runes on the surface kept flashing.
With bursts of violent spiritual power fluctuations surging around, the onlookers in other places were shocked. They all turned their heads to the 9th arena.
On the high platform not far away, several Real Pellet State powerhouses seemed to have noticed the movement of the 9th arena and looked over.
Pan Tianfeng seemed to feel that he had become the focus of attention, and he was delighted. He launched a series of symbols.
After the giant black hammer made a low noise. The black patterns on the surface gradually became clear.
Liu Ming still stood there without making a move. He just watched the giant hammer in the air with a half-smile.
This small black hammer was a superb spiritual weapon with 30 enchantments. Now it seemed to have an amazing momentum, but Pan Tianfeng could only activate 20 enchantments. It seemed that he either didn’t have enough spiritual power or he didn’t have time to sacrificial refine it completely.
At this moment, Pan Tianfeng gave a low groan, jumped up, grabbed the small hammer in the air, and waved it to the opposite side.
A loud noise came from the surface of the arena, and a large group of black hammer shadows emerged and rolled toward Liu Ming.
After a flash of Liu Ming’s figure, he appeared in the air more than 100 meters high, easily avoiding the attack.
The black hammer shadows immediately hit the light curtain on the edge of the arena. After a rumbling sound, the shadows dissipated into black light spots. The enchantment also trembled slightly. The power was obviously great.
When many onlookers saw this, they were also shocked. They were intimidated seeing the power of the hammer.
Pan Tianfeng saw Liu Ming dodged the attack so easily, and his face flushed in anger.
He made a gesture and swung the giant hammer once again. With a flash of black light, a dozen shadows of the hammer flew out in one go.
Liu Ming’s eyes flashed. After his figure turned blurred a few times, he appeared at the corner of the arena. All of the attacks missed once again.
After this process repeated for 4 times, Pan Tianfeng was already gasping with a pale face. Except dodging repeatedly, Liu Ming didn’t even cast his spiritual weapon.
This hammer consumed so much spiritual power that even Liu Ming couldn’t stand it, let alone this man.
This strange scene immediately caused the disciples around the arena to laugh.
“You keep dodging here and there, do you still want to fight or not! Are you afraid of my superb spiritual weapon?” Pan Tianfeng roared in anger.
“You’re right.” Liu Ming wiped his nose and replied without thinking upon hearing that.
As soon as he said this sentence, many onlookers burst into laughter.
“You… do you dare to fight me like a man!” Pan Tianfeng scolded angrily.
His original white and round face was flushed at the moment. Thinking that he, as the dignified young master of the Pan family, was being fooled by the person in front of him, he called back the giant hammer furiously. He surged all his spiritual power into it, and the giant black hammer shone brightly.
“Okay.” Liu Ming replied swiftly, but he still did not cast his spiritual weapon. His hands were still behind his back, but he looked a little serious.
Seeing this, Pan Tianfeng’s figure shook, rushing straight at Liu Ming with the giant black hammer in his hand.
With a thought, Liu Ming purposely revealed a flaw by slowing down his movement.
As a result, this person’s eyes flashed with joy. He groaned and smashed the giant hammer at Liu Ming. It turned into black shadows that surged at Liu Ming frantically.
Liu Ming’s figure just shook slightly, and he evaded the hammer shadows with an incredible move. He appeared strangely in another place.
“You…” Pan Tianfeng widened his eyes, but before he finished speaking, his face suddenly turned pale. “Bang“, he fell unconscious to the ground.
Obviously, the previous few blows had drained all his spiritual power; he could no longer stand it.
From Pan Tianfeng casting the black hammer to fainting to the ground, it took about 10 minutes. Liu Ming didn’t use his spiritual weapon and attack with initiative from the beginning to the end.
This was unprecedented in the history of the Taiqing Sect’s outer door major competition.
The onlookers were also a little dumbfounded.
Of course, this was because Pan Tianfeng’s spiritual power was built up by medicinal power, so his true spirit was too impured. Otherwise, even if the consumption of spiritual power was a lot, he would never be so unbearable.
“In this match, Piaohong Courtyard Liu Ming won!”
With the announcement, Liu Ming’s mouth was slightly tilted. His figure shook before appearing under the arena.
“Tsk tsk, this Pan Tianfeng is your Xuanmiao Courtyard’s disciple right?” The glamorous woman said with a chuckle.
Hearing the words, the short and fat man on the side also looked embarrassed; he was a little dumbfounded.
Pan Tianfeng’s aptitude is not bad, but he is lazy by nature. Although his cultivation is increased by consuming a large amount of elixir, he has now reached the Condensation Period later stage. With several superb spiritual weapons and extraordinary techniques, he can deal with ordinary disciples of the same level. The possibility of winning is still quite high.
But I never expected that this disciple would use a superb spiritual weapon that he obviously couldn’t control. As a result, such a dumb situation occurred.
“Eh hem, the guy at Piaohong Courtyard is quite extraordinary. He can see the huge amount of spiritual power consumed by the opponent’s spiritual weapon… Courtyard Master Liang, this person must be the newcomer, Liu Ming right?” The short and fat man gave a light cough, then he hurriedly changed the thread of discussion.
“Yes, it is this man.” Liang Zhange replied solemnly.
“I heard that this person has learned the inner sect technique before, and he also had quite some performance in the Small Flame World’s trial. Now I saw his battle today, he is indeed quite good.” The short and fat man said with flashing eyes.
Liang Zhange just smiled when he heard the words, and said nothing.
Seeing this, the short and fat man didn’t say much. He remained silent with a dark face.
Jiang Zhong kept twisting his beard and smiling without saying a word.
The other courtyard masters and deputy courtyard masters on the side also looked different at this moment. Some did not care about the matter; they just paid attention to the situation of their disciples.
On the other hand, Hao Yue Tongzi also glanced at the 9th arena and his eyes flickered slightly.
The man surnamed Lu of the Emerald Cloud Peak and the young woman next to him were intently watching the fierce match in another arena.
The matches on each arena were still going on fiercely. Liu Ming just found a corner to sit quietly with his legs crossed and didn’t care too much about others’ matches.
In the afternoon, Liu Ming once again easily defeated a Sword Cultivator holding a small green sword. The opponent had just cultivated the Sword Controlling Technique not long after, and he had not even reached the level of small success. Liu Ming found an opening and won with one punch.
As the 2nd day was ending, Liu Ming saw that he would not have any more fights today and he had no interest in watching the others’ fight, so he went back to his cave house.
The 3rd day of the competition was still going on intensely.
Not sure whether Liu Ming was lucky or his opponent was unlucky, his 4th match opponent was a short young man at the Condensation Period intermediate stage. This man didn’t encounter any Condensation Period later stage disciples in the previous rounds which were quite lucky.
As a result, within just a few seconds, the short young man’s protective aura was broken by Liu Ming with Tiger Dragon Hell Prison, and he hurriedly admitted defeat.
As the matches progressed in an orderly manner, the situation of each group gradually became clear. The 9th group where Liu Ming belonged, currently had only more than 20 people.
According to the rules of the preliminary contest, this 5th elimination round would have 10 matches of 1v1. As for the participants who didn’t have any opponent, they could pick anyone from the top 10 to battle. If they win, they could replace the top 10.
At this moment, Liu Ming was standing in front of the stone tablet that showed the following match up. He scanned with Divine Thought and found that his opponent in the last round turned out to be the top 10 in the previous major competition mentioned by Yan Ming, a muscular man in blue robe.
