The opponent of this woman was the man in white clothes who used two hammers. Facing the woman with a scar face’s swift attacks, he swung two fiery red hammers quickly, forming a solid fortress in the dense hammer shadows.
Even so, the forehead of the man in white clothes was full of sweat.
At this moment, there was a sound of lightning!
A silver light swept past in front of the man like lightning. Under the flash of the silver claw shadow, the dense hammer shadows collapsed.
With a scream, the man in white clothes couldn’t help but backed up a few steps. On his left chest, 3 bloody scratches were so deep that bones could be seen.
Seeing this, the man in white clothes made a loud shout, A crackling dark red lightning arc emerged from the two hammers in his hand. At the same time, his body also emitted a strong red light. They combined into a spherical thunder shield.
The woman with a scar face sneered. She stretched out her fingers as she chanted. A layer of silver light appeared on all her fingers.
The next moment, the woman with a scar face pointed, and the two silver flying claws combined.
In a tyranny roar, the two flying claws turned into a silver leopard. It flicked and disappeared from the arena.
The man in white clothes looked astounded. He immediately channeled all his spiritual power into the thunder shield.
Just as the man in white clothes just raised the two hammers and placed it on his chest, a silver phantasm flashed and appeared in front of him.
A big hole was clawed out on the thunder shield by the silver leopard’s claws.
The silver light flashed again, and the leopard had already rushed in front of the man in white clothes. Several sharp claws flashed, and he flew out of the arena with a scream.
At this time, the onlookers saw that the chest of the man in white clothes had become bloody. Two deep scratches could be vaguely seen.
Above the arena, the woman with a scar face waved her hand and the silver leopard turned back into two flying claws and flew back into her hand.
“Thank you Senior Sister Apprentice Zhao for being merciful.” Under the arena, the man in white clothes stood up with difficulty, took out a hemostatic talisman and stuck it on his chest. He cupped his fist and thanked the woman with a scar face.
Obviously, if the woman with a scar face was serious, his heart would have been dug out.
“This woman with a scar face is Zhao Anyin, an old disciple of Xuanji Courtyard. She showed great strength in the last major competition. That pair of flying claws is also a rare set of superb spiritual weapon.” Yan Ming said softly beside Liu Ming.
Liu Ming’s expression moved. After nodding slightly, he remembered the details in silence.
After all, the possibility of encountering such a strong opponent in the subsequent quarter-final and even the top 10 duel was extremely great.
Half an hour later, the 4th group.
A young man with a white hair was standing on the side of the arena with empty hands. He didn’t even cast any spiritual weapon.
His opponent was a tall and thin young disciple.
In the air in front of the young man with a white hair, there were dense wind blades, fireballs, water arrows, and boulders. As he waved one hand, these attacks blasted out. He waved another hand, and another wave was launched immediately.
Seeing this, Liu Ming in the audience couldn’t help looking shocked. The young man with a white hair had actually cultivated all these basic spells to the perfect stage!
On the other side, the tall and skinny young man was holding a triangular shield. Under the attacks of fireballs and wind blades, it emitted bursts of halo from time to time. At the same time, a long sword shining with blue stars in his hand was swinging endlessly. Waves of blue sword lights crisscrossed out, splitting the oncoming water arrows and boulders.
The tall and thin man could hold until now, it meant that he wasn’t weak. The triangular shield and the starlight sword were also upper grade spiritual weapon. However, he was still unable to fight back.
After the young man with a white hair once again released a dense water arrows and wind blades, which were resolved by the opponent one by one, he suddenly pulled his hands down. A door-sized greenwind blade was launched.
The next moment, a dull sound came as the giant wind blade hit the triangular shield.
The tall and skinny young man was caught off guard, and his body trembled violently. The blood in his body was tumbling.
Before he stabilized his figure, giant wind blades were condensed one after another. It almost had no cooldown.
Seeing this scene, even Liu Ming was a little shocked. Although he could also launch out such a giant wind blade, but at the level of his gesture forming, it was impossible to launch so fast.
The tall and skinny young man was also extremely shocked at the moment. He retreated quickly, knowing clearly that he couldn’t resist such frequent attacks of giant wind blades.
However, the next moment, he only felt his feet tighten, and his figure came to a halt.
His feet were being rooted by vines!
Just as his face changed drastically, another waves of fireballs followed behind the giant wind blades.
“I… I admit defeat!” The tall and skinny young man shouted immediately with his eyes.
When everyone in the audience exclaimed, thinking that the tall and skinny young man was about to be seriously injured, a strange scene appeared!
The young man with a white hair just waved his hand casually, and the giant wind blades and fireballs collapsed on their own!
When everyone in the audience saw this, they couldn’t help but take a breath and were a little dumbfounded!
“Hou Kun wins!” The Crystallization Period deputy in the air was also surprised. As he regained his senses, he immediately announced.
Under the arena, Liu Ming couldn’t help looking solemn. He started to recall the three matches that he cared about the most.
There was no doubt that whether it was Zhou Tianrui or the woman with a scar face, they were both very strong. They also had superb spiritual weapons. Their actual strength could even fight with the Crystallization Period cultivator. However, as compared to the two, the young man with a white hair brought him more shock.
Judging from the degree of freedom in controlling the five elements in the battle, this person had reached an incredible level on controlling the five elements!
On the white jade high platform, the courtyard masters of the 8 courtyards were also discussing the previous battles.
“In the last major competition, Zhou Tianrui and Zhao Anyin both performed well. 10 years have passed in a blink of an eye, and the strength of the 2 has really improved.”
“Indeed, but the disciple with a white hair is a bit weird. He can actually cultivate the five element spells to such an extent.”
“Brother Zhen, isn’t that the young man with a white hair under your Xuanmiao Courtyard? I never expect you to have such a disciple.”
Hearing this, a few people looked at the short and fat man standing in the center.
The short and fat man’s complexion did not change at all, and he said a few polite words. In fact, he was also puzzled in his mind.
The young man with a white hair was indeed a disciple of the Xuanmiao Courtyard. He had just joined a few years ago, but he had been cultivating behind closed doors in the courtyard.
Over the years, he had only seen this disciple once or twice, and he didn’t care about him at all. He really didn’t expect that this disciple would show such brilliance in the major competition.
On the other side of the jade platform, the masters and elders of the Real Pellet State of each peak had a lot of discussions.
They naturally saw that Zhou Tianrui and other old disciples before. Now, their attention was more on the young man with a white hair.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Lu, what do you think of this person?” Hao Yue Tongzi turned his head to the man surnamed Lu and asked.
“This disciple seems to have extraordinary spirituality for the five elements spells. I guess… he should be born with some kind of natural spiritual body.” The man surnamed Lu thought slightly and said slowly.
“Brother Lu is right. As far as I know, this disciple is very likely to have the five elements spiritual body in the rumors.” The taoist in red clothes on the other side suddenly interjected.
“Five elements spiritual body?” After hearing this, everyone present looked at the taoist in red clothes in surprise.
“I also once unintentionally read the ancient records of the clan and learned about it. This five elements spiritual body is born with a very high comprehension of various five elements spells. The five elements are reinforcing and restraining each other, so they are extremely difficult to co-exist as one, so such a rare spiritual physique can only be met by chance.” The taoist in red clothes gave a faint smile and explained to everyone.
But as soon as these words were spoken, many people in the room immediately had thoughts in their mind.
Just when it was getting dark, all the preliminary competitions in all groups ended. The top 100 disciples were finally decided from the 10 groups.
100 disciples including Liu Ming, Zhou Tianrui, Zhao Anyin were standing in front of the high jade platform at the moment, and they also had different kinds of expressions. Some were admiring, some were longing, some were revering, and some were feeling jealous.
On the high platform, the short and fat man surnamed Zhen, as the host of the major competition, took a few steps forward and glanced swept around.
The unexpected performance of the young man with a white hair in his courtyard made him look much better. After a quick glance, he loudly announced the end of the first round of the major competition to the people present. At the same time, he informed the top 100 disciples that the second round of the quarter-final will begin tomorrow.
As for the quarter-final content, it was to decide the top 10 disciples among the top 100.
In addition, everyone would be separated into 10 groups again by drawing lots. Each group would have 10 people. The last one standing in each group would be selected through the elimination system.
Today’s major competition was naturally over, so all the disciples immediately left the mountain.
The outer disciples who could advance to the top 100 were naturally not weak. Liu Ming didn’t dare to be careless in tomorrow’s battles. As he returned to his cave house, he immediately sat cross-leg to adjust his state to the peak.
In the early morning of the 3rd day, thousands of Taiqing Sect’s outer disciples once again gathered on the top of Yunyi Peak. Liu Ming and other 99 disciples, under the arrangement of deputy disciples, came before the stone tablet to draw lots.
