Zhou Tianrui’s eyes were dazzled, then he felt that the surrounding scenery had changed drastically. Within the arena, there was an endless sea in all directions. Huge waves were pushing from all sides.
Zhou Tianrui’s complexion changed drastically. He couldn’t see Hou Kun’s figure now, but fortunately, the puppets could still perceive with Divine Thought.
However, these puppets were in the same situation at the moment. Their every move was very heavy as if they weighed thousands of catties.
After Zhou Tianrui calmed his mind, he discovered that although this temporary array had a certain confinement power, it did not have any attack power. With a sudden change in his mind, he immediately clapped the gourd with one hand, and another brown glow rolled out. It desperately resisted the surrounding huge waves and began to struggle to break away from the array.
According to his experience, this array was a water-attribute trap, and he was good at earth attribute techniques. Under such inter-restriction, he only needed a little time to get rid of it.
At the same time, after the young man with a white hair sent out more than a dozen sets of serial talisman arrays, the spiritual power loss was also great. His face was pale for a while. After taking a deep breath, he crossed his arms and split them apart again. A dozen of 50 cm fire snakes appeared.
“Intermediate tier spell, fire snake spell!”
Liu Ming was shocked. What he did not expect was that the young man in white clothes even formed the gestures of an intermediate tier spell, otherwise he would not be able to cast the spell so fast and manipulate so many snakes at the same time.
At the next moment, the young man with a white hair launched symbols at the fire snakes. Instantly, the dozen of fire snakes combined into a giant fire dragon of 300 meters long.
As soon as the young man shouted, the fire dragon actually uttered a dragon roar. It wiggled its body while charging at Zhou Tianrui. Wherever it went, the surroundings’ temperature rose quickly. The surrounding space became crimson.
Zhou Tianrui was channeling spiritual weapon in the array, but he still needed some time to breach the array. He suddenly felt a strong spiritual power fluctuation. A red light flashed in the huge waves; the ferocious fire dragon broke out and slammed at Zhou Tianrui with great momentum.
A loud rumbling noise!
Zhou Tianrui and the earth spirit puppets he summoned were swept by the tumbling crimson fire cloud, dissolving at a speed visible to the naked eye. The arena couldn’t help shaking violently too.
After the fire cloud rolled a few times, a somewhat scorched figure reappeared on the arena.
At this time, not only the 8 earth spirit puppets no longer exist, but there was also an earth wall and a broken earth armor on Zhou Tianrui. He just looked at the young man with a white hair with a complicated complexion, then he fell to the ground with a bitter smile.
The disciples under the arena were all silent. They were obviously shocked by the battle.
Liu Ming’s pupils shrank as he looked at it. He wondered whether he could take it head-on if he encountered this fire snake spell that achieved great success.
On the white jade high platform, the victory of the young man with a white hair, Hou Kun, also caused a lot of discussion from the Real Pellet State powerhouses. Many people also showed surprise expressions.
“This disciple not only has a rare spiritual body, but he also seems to have a good understanding of the talisman array.” A middle-aged man in a gray robe said with joy.
“Is Brother Zhao going to pick Hou Kun too?” Another black robe man with a sharp face features said with a smile.
“Listening to Brother Li’s tone, do you want to fight with me for this disciple?” The middle-aged man in the gray robe looked stern and said in a solemn voice.
“Brother Zhao, take it easy. Although this disciple has a rare talent, I, Tianjian Peak, is mainly practicing sword techniques. How would I compete with Brother Zhao?” The black robe man still said with a smile.
Although the top 10 battles of the major competition had not yet officially started, many Real Pellet State powerhouses have begun to compete secretly. They had selected those outstanding and potential outer disciples as candidates for their peaks.
And the talented young man with a white hair, Hou Kun, was naturally more sought-after.
At the same time, on a mountain not far from the Yunyi Peak, a man in a yellow robe wearing a golden hoop stopped Zhou Tianrui, who had just returned from a big defeat in the competition and was depressed.
“Are you Zhou Tianrui?” The man in a yellow robe said lightly.
“Replying to senior, disciple is Zhou Tianrui, senior is…” Zhou Tianrui was a little depressed at the moment, but after discovering that he couldn’t sense the aura of the other party, he immediately replied with a stern look.
“Very well, I’m is Taiyue Peak’s elder. I have long heard that you are an earth attribute spirit summoner. I wanted to go to Yunyi Peak to watch the match in person, but I didn’t expect to meet you here.” The man in a yellow robe smiled upon hearing this.
“Junior is weak in strength; I failed to advance to the top 10 of this major competition. I’m afraid the seniors will have to give up…” Zhou Tianrui was surprised at first, but he immediately said with a wry smile.
“It doesn’t matter. It’s normal for young people to experience a little setback, you don’t to be so frustrated. I’m here to take you into my Taiyue Peak. You should be clear that my Taiyue Peak has many famous spirit summoners. Are you willing to join us?” The man in a yellow robe waved his hand to interrupt Zhou Tianrui, then he looked up and laughed.
“Is senior telling the truth?” Zhou Tianrui was overjoyed when he heard the words.
He failed to enter the top 10 of the major competition, but the well-known Taiyue Peak was actually willing to accept him. As he was swayed by the unexpected outcome, he couldn’t help asking anxiously.
“How will the elder of an inner door tell a lie.” The man in a yellow robe man didn’t mean to blame this son at all. He just waved his hand.
“Sorry for my disrespect.” Zhou Tianrui hurriedly paid his respect. The depression on his face had been cleared, and his face was full of excitement.
“The peak master is still waiting for me to go back. Let’s move now.” The man in a yellow robe said and flicked his sleeve, then a red rainbow rolled out and carried them away.
“This match, Xuanji Courtyard, Wu Ming won!”
With the end of the last match, the top 10 of major competitions was finally decided.
Liu Ming, Hou Kun, Zhao Anyin, Wu Ming and six others who won out of thousands of outer disciples, stood in a row in front of the white jade platform, waiting quietly.
Thousands of disciples who had not left at this moment. They had surrounded the white jade platform, vying to see the top 10 of the major competition.
Just as the short and fat man on the jade platform stepped forward and was about to announce the next round of the ranking list, a faint voice suddenly came out like a phantom.
The sound was not loud, but it spread clearly into the ears of everyone present.
Just as everyone looked up in amazement to find the sound coming from, a golden light appeared in the distance and blasted toward the peak. After a moment, it landed on the jade platform.
After the escape light faded, a young man with a smiling face appeared. He looked 28 or 29 years old and wore a somewhat large golden robe.
The young man didn’t look at the others, but he walked straight to the short and fat man. After cupping his fist, he handed over a golden token in front of everyone, then he bowed his head and said a few words in a low voice.
The short and fat man was startled when he heard the words. After carefully inspecting the token in his hand, he was shocked. However, after hesitating for a while, he cleared his throat and announced,
“Eh hem! Everyone please be quiet. Now I announce that this disciple Jin Tianchi, which is the person in front, will be qualified to challenge 1 of the top 10 disciples. The winner can stay in the top 10 and enter the ranking tournament.”
“This person has not participated in the previous rounds. How can he be qualified to enter the top 10 directly with a token.”
“Yeah, if everyone is like this, what’s the use of the previous preliminary round and quarter-final?”
As soon as the short and fat man spoke, the disciples below were shocked, and there was a burst of discussion. They all became dissatisfied.
However, when the short and fat man’s gaze swept coldly, accompanied by the Real Pellet State powerhouse’s terrifying spiritual pressure, all the disciples immediately shut up. There was no sound in the audience.
At this time, Hao Yue, who was behind the jade platform, was also whispering.
“Taoist Hao Yue, could it be the Taihua Token that this disciple took out?” A middle-aged man with a face was surprised. He asked with voice transmission.
“If I see it right, that is indeed the token. But within the sect, those who can take out the Taihua Token, there is someone I actually know, who is this Jin Tianci? Does Brother Hua recognize him? “Hao Yue also had a look of confusion. He replied with a voice transmission.
“Even Brother Hao Yue doesn’t know who this person is, how can I, who cultivate behind close-doors, know.” Luo Jihu said with a wry smile.
Many other Real Pellet State powerhouses also shook their heads after a few whispers. No one knew the young man in a golden robe.
While talking, Jin Tianci had already unceremoniously selected his opponent, a seemingly strong young man.
“Hmph, I don’t care, you can make an exception and have the opportunity to challenge, but if you think that the top 10 of the major competition can be obtained by your cheeky means, you are very wrong.” After the brawny young man learned that Jin Tianci challenged him, he immediately showed a stern cold and snorted.
“Hehe, I just want to join i the fun.” Jin Tianci just smiled and replied with a nonchalant face.
With such an expression, he naturally made the brawny young man on the opposite side more angry.
“Well, since you 2 have no opinion, the match will start now. The winner can participate in the top 10 ranking competition.” The short and fat man looked at Jin Tianci with a hint of doubt, but he still announced it.
After the announcement, a Crystallization Period deputy reopened the arena’s enchantment in the middle.
Jin Tianci and the brawny young man immediately rose into the air and landed on the arena.
