When Liu Ming saw this, he naturally didn’t dare to care about it. He channeled the Beast Armor Tactic. The octopus clinging to his chest made a hissing sound, instantly turning into a silver beast armor all over Liu Ming’s body.
This Beast Armor Tactic could not only turn the spiritual beast into leather armor for defense, but it could also increase the physical body. Now that the eight tentacles beastkin was at the Condensation Period later stage, the buff to the physical body had reached about 30%.
At the same time, Liu Ming stretched his arms forward, and the mist dragons and tigers were enlarged. They roared in unison and dived down.
Liu Ming’s move of using Beast Armor Tactic to buff the Dragon Tiger Hell Prison surprised Luo Tiancheng, but he immediately snorted and changed his gesture. The silver dragons and tigers burst apart and turned into a silver light that swept up.
Upon seeing this, Liu Ming’s face sank. The 5 black mist dragons and tigers also burst apart and turned into a black light.
“Boom“, the black and silver lights collided together in mid-air. After condensing slightly, they each turned into a giant black light ball and a giant silver light ball. They collided together like 2 suns.
Immediately, a rumbling noise came from the air. The entire sky was violently distorted and blurred.
The big movement caused by the fight between Liu Ming and Luo Tiancheng naturally attracted batch after batch of disciples to watch the battle.
At this time, the 2 light balls grew bigger and bigger, and they slowly merged into 1 in the collision. Looking from the distance, it looked like a huge light ball that was half black and half silver. The division was clear in the middle. The aura emanated from it was breathtaking. All those disciples who were watching the battle were all shocked.
A loud “boom!“
The 2 semi-circular light spheres suddenly burst apart, and the silver and black lights suddenly scattered in all directions.
Liu Ming only felt a huge recoil force. Under the strong tremor of his body, he hurriedly channeled Beast Armor Tactic and turned it into a silver shield to block in front.
Immediately afterward, he was blown back by the huge force on the shield, flying back for 1000 meters and slamming heavily into a nearby mountain peak.
The mountain shook for a while, and a thick crack appeared on the peak.
When he wanted to fly out, he staggered and spat out a patch of blood.
Luo Tiancheng also received a recoil, and it was not much better. On the ground outside Precious Hall, a black hole as large as 100 meters wide and 10 meters deep could be seen.
In the depths of the black hole on the ground, Luo Tiancheng was lying on his back with a pale face. He was covered in scars, and a trace of blood flowed out from his mouth. After a while, he slowly got up and looked at Liu Ming with a strange look.
The onlookers disciples, no matter how far or near, were all a little dumbfounded. Even the disciples who were whispering to each other forgot their words for a while, making the surrounding quiet.
After Luo Tiancheng walked out of the big pit, he suddenly took a few deep breaths, and a silver glow circulated around his whole body. The wounds all over his body quickly healed at the speed visible to the naked eye.
Seeing this, Liu Ming’s heart shuddered, and then he remembered that the other party possesses the rumored dutian spiritual body, which was similar to an indestructible body. Even if Liu Ming really fought with him with all his strength, it was hard to tell who would get the final victory.
However, Luo Tiancheng only took a deep look at Liu Ming, then he appeared beside Fan Zheng, who was still unconscious on one side. After he picked him up, he turned into a silver light and disappeared.
Seeing this, Liu Ming also breathed a sigh of relief. He quickly took out a golden yuan pill from the Sumeru Ring and swallowed it, then he also turned into a golden light and flew away.
Otherwise, it would be troublesome if he was caught by the law enforcement hall people.
After Liu Ming and the 2 left one after another, the disciples were relieved from the shock before, and they suddenly burst into a hot discussion. Especially this involved the well-known Luo Tiancheng, this had aroused the excitement of many people.
The identity of Liu Ming was naturally recognized quickly, which caused a lot of commotion.
Not long after, in the hall of Emerald Cloud Peak, Hao Yue, who looked like a 13 years old boy, put away the messaging disk array around his waist with a slightly ugly face.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Hao Yue, what happened? Have you found out who caused the violent spirit fluctuation just now? Could it be any bad news?” A middle-aged white-robed man asked with concern, but it was the courtyard master surnamed Lu.
Hao Yue Tongzi shook his head, and after a light sigh, he said,
“I wonder if Senior Fellow Apprentice Lu still remember Liu Ming? I just received the message, just half an hour ago. Because of the Tianmen Convention quota, he, Luo Tiancheng and Fan Zheng of the Mystic Sky Peak fought outside the Precious Hall.” Hao Yue said slowly after a pause.
“In this way, the huge spirit fluctuation was due to their fight? Although Luo Tiancheng is young and has only the early stage of the Crystallization Period cultivation, his strength is obvious to all. Could it be that he couldn’t hold back his strength in time and hurt Liu Ming?” The white-robed man asked with a frown.
“If this is the case, then it is reasonable. But according to the news I just received, Liu Ming and Luo Tiancheng had a head-on blow, and both of them used the Dragon Tiger Hell Prison power, but in the end, they were evenly matched.” Hao Yue said with a light sigh flashing a strange color in his eyes.
“Junior fellow apprentice, are you sure you are not mistaken? That Luo Tiancheng is born with a dutian spiritual body. Because of his special physique, the Dragon Tiger Hell Prison he uses will also be several times more powerful. How could Liu Ming, with his Three Spiritual Pulse, rival against him using the same technique?” The courtyard master surnamed Lu said with a move.
“The disciple who reported to me was near the Precious Hall at the time. He witnessed the battle with his own eyes. There would be no falsehoods. I don’t know what Liu Ming is capable of. He can grow up to this point in just over 20 years. I also heard that he broke through to the Crystallization Period later stage. Now it seems that you and I really misjudged at the time.” Hao Yue shook his head again and replied with a wry smile.
After listening, Lu Zhang’s expression suddenly became uncertain.
At the same time, in a quite spacious cave house secret room in the mountain range where the Golden Summit was located, a middle-aged man in his forties, also holding the sect transmission token in his hand, had a look of surprise on his face.
This person was the only man to summon Liu Ming after the major competition in the Outer Court that day, one of the elders of the Golden Top Peak, Zhang Mao.
“It seems that I missed a good seedling that day. This is really a pity. This man easily defeated Sima Chong before, and now he was evenly matched with Luo Tiancheng. His potential is really beyond imagination.” After a while, the middle-aged man came back to his senses, and he murmured regretfully, then he closed his eyes and continued to cultivate.
Half a day later, in a side hall of Fallen Serene Peak, Yin Jiuling was sitting cross-legged opposite a gray-haired man in a gray robe, playing chess against a dark chessboard.
“Peak Master Senior, I heard that Liu Ming’s participation in the Tianmen Convention 2 years later was appointed by the sect master himself. Is this true?” The gray-robed man gently stroked one hand, and a black chess piece flew to the right corner of the chessboard. He asked a question seemingly at random.
“That’s true. A few days before, sect master personally came to the Fallen Serene Peak to test personally, then he .” Yin Jiuling said with a half smile, then he patted lightly with 1 hand. A white chess piece floated up and was placed above the previous black chess piece.
“Since the sect master personally nominated him, it should be fine.” The gray-robed man nodded, showing a trace of relief.
“I just received a message saying that the 2 disciples who were fighting at the entrance of Precious Hall this morning were Liu Ming and Luo Tiancheng from the Mystic Sky Peak. I heard that they were evenly matched. Let’s not talk about everything else, just this result alone is eligible to participate in the Tianmen Convention.” Yin Jiuling said with a sneer.
“Indeed, Nephew Disciple Liu can take Luo Tiancheng’s all-out attack and be evenly matched. This is more than enough to participate in the Tianmen Convention. But then again, if it is really a true fight, I’m afraid Nephew Disciple Liu will definitely lose. He has a true spirit flying sword in his hand, but it is still impossible to break the dutian spiritual body of Luo Tiancheng. Once it turned into a protracted battle, there was no hope of victory. After all, the dutian spiritual body is originally built with amazing defense and endurance. The recovery speed of the person with this spiritual body is astonishing. As long as his spiritual power is not exhausted, it is almost impossible to defeat.”
The gray-robed man said with a slight smile, and he flicked his index finger. A white chess piece fell into a pile of black pieces in the corner of the chessboard.
As soon as this piece fell, the entire chessboard suddenly flashed, and dozens of black chess pieces in a corner suddenly disappeared.
“Hehe, let the juniors take care of things by themselves. We just need to do our own things. However, Junior Fellow Apprentice Tian, I can say that I have studied this chess for hundreds of years, but I never expect to have such a huge gap between you.” Yin Jiuling glanced at the chessboard for a short period of time, then he clapped while saying with laughter.
“Peak master, you are just distracted for a moment, so I could only take advantage of it.” The gray-robed man smiled respectfully.
The earth-shattering battle between Liu Ming and Luo Tiancheng naturally spread throughout the entire Taiqing Sect.
Liu Ming, who once caused a commotion in Taiqing Sect more than 30 years ago, once again became the hot topic. His reputation had increased tenfold more than before. Even among the peaks of the inner door, he was also popular among their topics.
While people in the sect were all talking about him, Liu Ming was cultivating quietly in the cave house. His pale face had now recovered; the slightly unstable aura also gradually stabilized.
TL: Maybe those masters may have to change their views in choosing disciples in the future… Did Liu Ming really go all out though?
