Ye Xiwen’s aura had a drastic difference. He retracted all the aura seeping out of his body with ease. It did not alert anyone.
Ye Xiwen opened his eyes. After three years, he finally ascended to Transcendent Realm Third Level!
After he entered the Ancient Barrens continent, this was his most extended breakthrough despite under the flame essences’ effect.
Of course, this had a lot to do with him deliberately slowing his progress. Laying a good foundation was still his highest priority. In True Martial Domain, his cultivation had come to the upper limit. However, in Ancient Barrens, he could only be regarded as a younger generation of warriors at best. He was still in the stage of laying a foundation. At this time, the more solid the foundation, the more helpful it would be for his future cultivation.
However, the close cultivation for the past three years was not in vain. After all, he also entered the Transcendent Realm Third Level. In addition to Ye Xiwen’s close cultivation, even Ye Mo was also in close cultivation in these three years. In that Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion, Tianyuan Mirror had assimilated way too much vital energy and blood essence. It took a while to absorb them. When Tianyuan became available, it had evolved into an Advanced Human Level martial instrument.
Ye Xiwen speculated the time again. It had come to the date Yao Qian mentioned – the gathering of young experts. He just wasn’t sure if he missed it.
Thinking of this, Ye Xiwen stood up and flew out of the oceanic trench, heading straight to the nearby Sunny Bamboo Island.
At first glance, the entire Sunny Bamboo Island was lively. The city didn’t seem to have regressed because of the Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion incident three years ago.
The entire Sunny Bamboo Island was discussing the gathering of young experts held by Yao Qian. Not anyone could attend this gathering; it was undoubtedly only the top-notch young experts could attend.
Therefore, a massive crowd paid close attention to this gathering, especially Sunny Bamboo Island’s Muse Yao invited young experts. These factors undoubtedly made the whole event more eye-catching.
Ye Xiwen did not go directly to the Sunny Bamboo Chamber of Commerce. He first found an inn to settle down. Ye Xiwen just walked in, and the waiter enthusiastically stepped forward and asked, “What does the dear customer want?”
“I just want to have something to eat!” Ye Xiwen was not demanding in this regard. “By the way, is the gathering of young experts held by Muse Yao over already?”
“It turns out that dear customer is also here to participate in the gathering of young experts!” The waiter came to realize that. Judging from Ye Xiwen’s young age and high cultivation, he came here to attend young experts’ gathering. “You’re in the right timing. The gathering starts today. It is said that in addition to our young experts near Sunny Bamboo Island, there are also many experts on the Flourished Cloud Sea Region in the Top 100 List visiting personally. It’s lively and brilliant with many young stars!”
“Can the experts near Sunny Bamboo Island also participate?” Ye Xiwen asked curiously.
“Well, young experts above the Transcendent Realm Second Level can enter. However, they are only foils here. The center of attention will be the young experts on the Top 100 List!” the waiter explained.
Ye Xiwen agreed with it too. These young experts near Sunny Bamboo Island were only sidekicks at best. The real protagonists should also be those masters on the Top 100 List.
The waiter quickly prepared meals for Ye Xiwen while Ye Xiwen just sat quietly and listened to his surroundings.
There were also discussions around this matter. Although it was only a gathering of some younger generation experts, it was not a trivial event for the entire Sunny Bamboo Island.
“This time, I heard a lot of young experts coming. Many of them are on the Top 100 List!”
“Yeah, there should be a lot of gatherings like this because the competition for the new list is about to begin. Now, it is the time for everyone to find out each other’s capabilities!”
“Indeed, there will be the emergence of new warriors on the Top 100 List, which names we have never heard of before. Apart from the competition for the top experts, what interests me is those emerging newcomers. Aren’t there such dark horses  in every session?”
“That’s it. Last time, from our Sunny Bamboo Island, only Muse Yao and Scarlet Thunder Immortal entered the Top 100 List. This time, I wonder how many can enter the rank of Top 100 List!”
“Yes, I hope there are more winners this time. It proves that my Sunny Bamboo Island is more prosperous!”
“But, I heard that this time both Muse Yao and Scarlet Thunder Immortal had made progress. Their progress in the Top 100 Competition will go even further than the last time!”
“He, it is because of this speculation that there are more gatherings like this happening. They want to figure out each other’s trump card before the Top 100 Competition begins.”
“Moreover, they said that Qiu Junhao of the Sea Dragon Mansion would come in person this time!” Someone lowered his voice and said, but everyone around him heard it. All of them exclaimed immediately.
“Qiu Junhao… Is that Qiu Junhao who is ranked 23rd in the Top 100 List?” someone exclaimed.
“That’s him. Who else will it be? He is already Transcendent Realm Sixth Level Peak at his young age. If he can go one step further before the Top 100 Competition begins and enter Transcendent Realm Seventh Level, he can even compete for Top 20!”
“Sea Dragon Mansion is still strong. In the Top 100 List alone, Sea Dragon Mansion alone accounted for more than a dozen places. Even so, there are many young experts of Sea Dragon Mansion noting participating in the ranking at all. Otherwise, they will occupy the Top 100 List!”
Ye Xiwen secretly absorbed the information. Although the Top 100 List was symbolic, the legitimate experts were still among the three forces. The three forces were also the human forces anchored on the Flourished Cloud Sea Region. As long as the three major forces were still there, the human clan would have a foothold in the Flourished Cloud Sea Region.
There were many experts among the three forces. After all, there were few young experts of unknown origin like Unparalleled Sword. Most of them were from these three forces. Apart from these three forces, the sea clans had the most numbers. After that, what remained was the experts from various small forces.
Suddenly, a bolt of light streaked across the sky arrogantly. The expert was in a green robe.
“Who is that? So arrogant?”
“They are the Jade Shadow Sea Snake Clan experts. They said that Bi Lixuan of Jade Shadow Sea Snake Clan personally led the team this time. It is probably because of Bi Chen’s affairs. The Vanishing Shadow Poisonous Crocodile Clan experts sheltered Bi Chen previously. What happened annoys the Jade Shadow Sea Snake Clan deeply. If it weren’t for the fact that the clan is not as strong as the Vanishing Shadow Poisonous Crocodile Clan, I am afraid they have already chosen to go to war with the Crocodile Clan already!”
“That’s quite serious. What exactly did Bi Chen do to irritate Jade Shadow Sea Snake Clan so terribly? They would rather go into conflict with the Vanishing Shadow Poisonous Crocodile Clan,” someone asked.
For Bi Chen, many people still had good memories of it. Bi Chen had caused a commotion in the nearby sea region, after all.
“God knows. Jade Shadow Sea Snake Clan is tight-lipped on this matter, but there is news calming that Bi Chen died three years ago.”
“It was the opening of Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion three years ago. No one knows whether Bi Chen died or not, but E Ying is dead. Under the eyes of everyone, he died under Ye Xiwen’s hand. If not, it should be E Ying leading the team!”
*Exclaimed!* “It’s no wonder that the Vanishing Shadow Poisonous Crocodile Clan is hunting people like crazy around the sea region. It turns out to be because of E Ying’s death. No wonder! E Ying is the elite genius of their clans. An elite second only to Crown Prince Crocodile is dead now. Who is Ye Xiwen?”
“Hehe, I don’t know. This person emerges out of nowhere and then disappears overnight. He appeared in the Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion three years ago, but there is no news in these three years!”
“Tsk, warriors are getting bolder nowadays. These young experts are often lawless. However, since these Jade Shadow Sea Snake Clan experts are here, is Crown Prince Crocodile coming? He sheltered Bi Chen previously!”
“How is it possible that the gathering is worthwhile to invite a character like Crown Prince Crocodile? This time, E Hong personally led the Vanishing Shadow Poisonous Crocodile Clan; his strength is superior to E Ying. Despite having an inferior talent in comparison to E Ying, he isn’t someone to be underestimated.”
“This will be a good show. Hehe, whether it is Vanishing Shadow Poisonous Crocodile Clan or Jade Shadow Sea Snake Clan, they are both sea clans. It is better for them to hurt themselves!”
“Despicable human beings can only dream of this kind of delusion!” a harsh disdainful voice came out.
When everyone looked toward the source, they saw a young man in a green robe sitting on a bench, sneering. His green eyes were snake-like. Everyone immediately recognized at first glance that it was a Jade Shadow Sea Snake Clan’s expert.
Those diners were a little startled. After all, they said bad things behind people’s backs, only to find that the person in their topic was right in front of them.
Some people were wondering who this Jade Shadow Sea Snake Clan’s young expert was. Why didn’t he go with Bi Lixuan but appeared here alone?
However, his next sentence immediately made many diners angry.
“This gathering is boring. I don’t see anyone worthwhile as an expert in the Human Clan. It’s just some people who have no reputation. That Muse Yao can be my 99th Concubine!” said the Jade Shadow Sea Snake Clan expert coldly.
