Zhao Anyin’s expression changed. She launched a dozen cold lights in a row, and she retreated quickly at the same time.
A hint of sneer revealed in Liu Ming’s eyes. He grabbed in the air, then the golden light condensed into a big golden hand of several 10 meters and slapped out.
The dozen cold lights could only stir up some golden light when hitting the big golden hand.
As the 5 fingers opened, they sealed off the retreat of the woman with a scar face from all directions.
Zhao Anyin desperately resisted, but she was still knocked out of the arena together with her spiritual weapon by the big golden hand.
“Piaohong Courtyard, Liu Ming won.” The Crystallization Period deputy in the sky announced immediately.
“You fought well.”
Liu Ming cupped his fist toward the unwilling woman with a scar face in the audience, then he kept away the 4 puppets and Golden Fallen Sand. Demon Flying Skull and Bone Scorpion also let go of the three silver wolves at this moment and returned to the soul-recovering bag in 2 black lights.
“Even Zhao Anyin is not his opponent…”
Liu Ming won this match, and he naturally attracted some discussion from the disciples and the attention of Real Pellet State powerhouses on the jade platform.
However, compared to the previous few times, there were not too many people surprised this time.
“To be able to manipulate the 4 guardian puppet warriors so skillfully, this Liu Ming’s mental power shouldn’t be weaker than the ordinary Crystallization Period early stage cultivator.” The young woman in red clothes looked thoughtful, but when thinking of Liu Ming’s Three Spiritual Pulse physique, she finally shook her head and sighed.
If Liu Ming’s aptitude was a little higher, even if he just had an ordinary Six Spiritual Pulse, this woman would not hesitate to take him in.
There were records of the disciples with Three Spiritual Pulse advanced to the Crystallization Period, they had a rich and powerful family behind them. By using countless rare treasures, they just barely advanced to the early stage of the Crystallization Period, but their cultivation just stopped right there for the rest of their lives.
Given Liu Ming’s current situation, this hope was too slim.
After getting off the arena, Liu Ming immediately sat cross-legged, took out a golden yuan pill and consumed it, and began to restore spiritual power. He didn’t bother watching the other matches.
After half an hour, the 9th round of the competition finally began.
Liu Ming’s opponent in this round was undoubtedly Jin Tianci. Both of them had 8 winning streaks so far, so this match would decide the top 1 in this major competition.
Therefore, although 5 matches were going on at the same time, except for some fellow apprentices supporting the disciples of the same courtyard on the other 4 arenas, most of the audience of the other disciples cast their gazes on them.
“Brother Liu just had 2 fierce battles in a row before, so now your spiritual power has not fully recovered right? If I fight with Brother Liu now, it will be unfair.” When Jin Tianci stepped onto the arena, he glanced up and down at Liu Ming. He just said with a smile, but he didn’t make a move immediately.
Liu Ming’s heart shuddered. Although Jin Tianci was still smiling, his eyes gave him a strange feeling as if he could see through the depths of his heart.
This made Liu Ming’s scruple of Jin Tianci increase a little, but he just smiled without replying to him.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu can control multiple spiritual weapons, and you are also good at manipulating puppets, so your mental power is definitely far better than cultivators of the same level. How about having a match with mental power and the power of control? Junior won’t object to my suggestion to have a spirit battle right?” Jin Tianci saw Liu Ming not talking, and he yawned before saying so.
As Liu Ming heard the words, he still looked the same, but his heart was moved.
The previous 2 fierce battles did consume most of his spiritual power. Although he took the golden yuan pill and adjusted his breath afterward, the spiritual power in his body was still far from the heyday.
As for the person in front of him, he couldn’t defeat him easily with just a few moves. He had never heard of the opponent’s strange technique, so he didn’t have the confidence to win the battle.
If it was a match that fought with mental power, regardless of whether the opponent had a strong mental power or mastered some kind of mental power techniques, he could still win with his mental power that was comparable to the Crystallization Period cultivator and the mind imitation insect in his hands.
As for the spirit battle mentioned by Jin Tianci, Liu Ming also roughly knew about it. It was a kind of mental power battle with some kind of special spiritual weapons.
This kind of fighting style was rare among the low tier cultivators, and it was more widely spread among cultivators above the Crystallization Period.
After all, in the fight between Crystallization Period and even Real Pellet State cultivator, their every move would cause a huge impact on the surroundings. Besides, those who had close cultivation would have to fight for more than one day. What’s more, one carelessness would even cause severe injuries to the opponent. Therefore, the way of the spirit battle was more convenient and safe.
So Liu Ming was silent for a short while under the gaze of everyone, then he finally nodded,
“Since Brother Jin suggested this, I will naturally agree to it.”
“Great, Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu is really forthright. This elder, then please take a set of 5 element discs.” Jin Tianci heard the words, and he turned to the old man in yellow clothes next to the arena and said.
Liu Ming’s eyes flashed when he heard the words.
The old man in a yellow robe had a scorched yellow face that looked a little hideous, but he was totally different from the previous Crystallization Period deputy. He couldn’t sense the aura from this elder at all.
When the old man in a yellow robe heard this, a smile appeared on his hideous face, and he didn’t hurriedly say, “Since the 2 of you agree to have a spirit battle, then I have no opinion about it.”
The old man in a yellow robe immediately flicked his sleeves, and 5 discs of the same size flew out.
The five discs were shown in 5 colors of green, red, yellow, white and black, respectively representing the 5 elements of wood, fire, earth, gold and water.
“Swoosh“, the 5 discs they flew between the two Liu Ming, lined up in a row, floating quietly.
Before they could take any action, the old man in a yellow robe flipped one hand to take out a five-color flag and tossed to the middle of the arena.
In the next moment, a strange light rose from the place where the small flag disappeared, and it extended to both sides, turning into a yellow light curtain.
In this light curtain was a scene of a seemingly huge and incomparably desolate place. It spread out to the surroundings strangely, giving the onlookers a strange boundless feeling.
Seeing this, Liu Ming’s heart trembled. His face showed a solemn look for the first time.
Jin Tianci smiled slightly. He waved one hand and took the golden disc into his hand, then he sat cross-legged on the side of the light curtain.
After thinking about it for a while, Liu Ming chose the crimson disk representing fire attribute and sat cross-legged on the other side of the light curtain.
Seeing that the 2 had chosen the disc and closed their eyes, the old man in a yellow robe immediately raised his sleeves and put away the remaining 3 discs. After announcing the start, he stood with his hands down in silence.
“Spirit battle starts…”
The disciples under the arena, who thought they could see a wonderful battle, did not expect such a result.
A few people showed disappointment immediately, but also many people showed interest in this novel method of fighting.
Above the arena, Liu Ming tapped his forehead, and his mental power in the sea of consciousness surged out and poured into the red disc in his hand.
Suddenly, a red light beam rose up from the surface of the red disc and went directly into the light curtain above the arena, connecting the two together.
After a flash of red light in the desolate ancient desert, a huge crimson light man appeared. It looked like it was 100 meters tall.
At the same time, a golden light beam appeared on the other side of the arena. It was the golden disc in Jin Tianci’s hands. Under the same flash, the other side of the light curtain also showed a golden light man similar to the crimson light man.
The 2 giants stood facing each other, and their eyes flashing with daunting crystal lights.
“Roar…” The crimson light man let out a roar and strode toward the golden light man. The huge crimson fist, wrapped in a layer of crystal light, slammed at the head of the golden light man.
The golden light man dodged by lowering its body, and it also punched the crimson light man’s neck.
The crimson light man didn’t dodge. It just threw a punch, then the 2 behemoths were immediately fighting fiercely.
Suddenly, the crimson light man was careless, and its left shoulder was chopped off by the golden palm.
The crimson light man roared, then its body transformed into a giant red python. It wrapped the golden light man tightly and bit its neck with its giant fang.
The golden light flashed, and the golden light man also turned into a huge golden bird. It got out from the giant red python’s bind and flew into the air with its wings spread, then it dived down swiftly and pecked at the red giant python’s head.
For a time, the 2 continuously changed into different kinds of beasts. The red and golden lights in the light curtain were also flickering as they fought nonstop.
The power of these monsters represented the controller’s mental power to a certain extent. As long as mental power was injected, the fight could be maintained continuously. Once the beast was hit in the fight, it meant a significant loss of mental power of the injured party.
However, so far, the 2 were exchanging hits with each other, but none of them looked weak. Liu Ming and Jin Tianci were still in a stalemate state.
After 15 minutes, suddenly a “crack” came from the light curtain!
The huge golden bear bit and broke the neck of the huge crimson wolf transformed by Liu Ming’s mental power.
Liu Ming, who was sitting cross-legged on the side of the arena, frowned slightly. A red light flashed in the light curtain, then the red giant wolf immediately turned into a stream of light and jumped backward. After another flash, the wound recovered instantly. But the crimson light had a slight change finally; the light became a lot dimmer.
Hmmm, this is sort of like a video game with mental power.
