Chapter 1384: Who is he?
The Paragon Sky Roc stared coldly at the kirin-masked figure as he stiffened. “Bai Wuya.”
The aura of the man blocking him was at the emperor level. There were only two immortal emperors in the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect. One was the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord and the other, was none other than the White-Robe Immortal King of the past, Bai Wuya! Now, his title was the White-Robe Immortal Emperor. Upon sensing emperor might, he instantly guessed who the man in the kirin mask was. The Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord’s opponent was the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, he wouldn’t be so bored and bring a bunch of immortal kings here.
“Paragon Sky Roc, don’t forget the rules.” The kirin mask shattered, revealing Bai Wuya’s face. His appearance was as young as ever, and seemed extremely like a gentleman clad in white.
“You actually hid among immortal kings and came all the way here to challenge me?” Paragon Sky Roc coldly spoke.
“I didn’t personally act, and it can’t be considered as I broke the rule. You, as an immortal emperor are in command of this army, aren’t you the same as me?” Bai Wuya calmly replied. The immortal kings of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect all had ugly expressions on their faces. They didn’t expect Bai Wuya to come here personally. No wonder these people are all so audacious, daring to come here and challenge them.
The other immortal kings of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect initially wanted to help out but Bai Wuya merely spoke in a cold manner, “The agreement for the death battle was witnessed by all. Whoever dares to break the rules, they shall be slaughtered.”
As the sound of his voice rang out, all the immortal kings halted and had ashen expressions. Bai Wuya’s words weren’t wrong.
Before this, everyone thought Wang Yu would be able to easily kill his opponent. Who would have thought that the devil mask cultivator would be so powerful.
Lifting their heads in the air, they only heard thunderous sounds reverberating throughout. At this moment, the immortal sense of an immortal emperor swept out. It was actually the immortal sense of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor.
“Your Majesty.” Everyone turned to the projection formed from the immortal sense, only to see the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor coldly staring at the masked Qin Wentian. “Release him.”
“Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, you cannot interfere in battles of immortal kings.” Bai Wuya glanced at the projection as he spoke.
“Bai Wuya, Wang Yu is my personal disciple.” The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor icily replied.
“Both sides are now in a war, since they are both willing to battle, who would give a damn about things like statuses? In addition, both of them agreed to a death battle and Paragon Sky Roc has also agreed to it. All the immortal kings here bore witness earlier too. If now, senior Eastern Sage wants to break the rules and interfere, don’t blame junior for offending you.” Bai Wuya calmly replied.
“Spare Wang Yu this time. In the future, I will spare the life of an immortal king from your side.” The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor spoke.
“I would have to offend you then.” Bai Wuya calmly spoke. His eyes gleamed with astral light. At the instant when he blinked, a killing energy surged forth, burrowing into the immortal sense projection of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor.
“Bai Wuya, how dare you!” The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor roared!
“Senior Eastern Sage, you should understand the rules of the battlefield.” Bai Wuya coldly replied, his voice extremely calm. With a disintegrating sound, the immortal sense projection faded away. The people of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect coldly stared at Bai Wuya. This fellow was too audacious, he actually wiped out the immortal sense projection of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor so forcefully.
“The challenge battle shall continue.” Bai Wuya calmly spoke. Although he was an initial-stage immortal emperor, he was after all, already an immortal emperor. How could he not be sufficient to deal with the immortal sense projection of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor?
Qin Wentian’s face was cold. Although Bai Wuya said to continue the battle, right now, there was no need for any combat any more. Earlier, he heavily injured Wang Yu with a single strike, it was only due to the immortal sense projection of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor negating some of the force that Wang Yu survived. If not, Wang Yu would have already died. Can this still be called a battle?
At this moment, all arrogance Wang Yu had earlier had now completely dissipated. When he saw Qin Wentian moving towards him, only despair could be seen in his eyes.
“Please spare me.” Wang Yu begged.
“Puchi…” The devil saber slashed down, directly reaping the life of Wang Yu away, showing no mercy. Qin Wentian’s expression was incomparably cold. This time, a personal disciple of Eastern Sage was killed by him. This should be sufficient to cause Eastern Sage’s heart to ache right?
It was only that right now, the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor still had no idea that the person who killed his personal disciple, was none other than Qin Wentian.
“Kill him.” Paragon Sky Roc coldly commanded, pointing at Qin Wentian. Since the battle between Qin Wentian and Wang Yu had ended, they wouldn’t be at fault for breaking the rules now even if they decided to surround Qin Wentian.
However, the immortal kings from the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect were already prepared. When the battle ended, they instantly appeared beside Qin Wentian. Qi Yu who was the man in the ape mask, directly slammed out with his palm, causing a gigantic divine ape to manifest. Roaring at the skies, a palm imprint blasted out. Those below the peak-tier immortal king realm had to retreat, or they would definitely die if the palm hit them.
This attack was simply too fierce, only peak-tier immortal kings had the ability to defend against it.
“Let’s leave.” Bai Wuya stated. After that, several powerful immortal kings all launched out attacks together, before soaring up and speeding away, as quick as lightning.
“Stop them!” Paragon Sky Roc howled in rage. Terrifying law domains extended outwards, there were gravity domains, corrosion domains, devouring domains… However, the law domain of an immortal king from the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect quickly enveloped his allies. In an instant, all other domains were ineffective against them. At the same time, a person with a law domain boosted their speeds as they fled hurriedly.
“Law domain of negation.” Paragon Sky Roc had a very ugly look on his face. The speed of peak-stage immortal kings were extremely fast, and there were many among the masked figures who came today. Only peak-stage immortal kings from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect would have a chance to catch up if they chose to pursue.
Bai Wuya laughed, “Paragon Sky Roc, goodbye.”
After speaking, he soared into the air and also vanished with a flick of his sleeves.
The peak-stage immortal kings of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect halted. They roared in reluctance upon seeing the masked figures vanishing from their view.
“Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect!” They clenched their fists tightly as their killing intent surged up into the sky, causing this space to tremble.
“Let’s return.” Paragon Sky Roc spoke out. “Immediately inform the other three armies about this. If someone seeks to challenge them, tell them to group up and slay all the challengers immediately lest they fall for the same trick.”
Right now, how could they still not understand? In the earlier battles, Qin Wentian clearly hid his strength. After that, he intentionally became arrogant, to force them to continue to commit to the challenge battle. For the third battle, he made it a death battle, killing Wang Yu, causing the Eastern Sage Immortal Army to suffer heavy losses and a loss of face.
For this immortal war, they were the ones with the initiation rights and possessed the advantage. The Cloud Prefecture has already been surrounded, yet they still lost so much face here? Even the personal disciple of his Majesty was killed. How could they answer to him?
The expression of Paragon Sky Roc was extremely heavy. He stared at Wang Yu’s corpse as he coldly asked, “Who knows the identity of the masked man who killed Wang Yu?”
Wang Yu was the personal disciple of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor but he was killed publicly just like that. In the future, they definitely had to hunt down the person who did it and avenge Wang Yu, giving the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor an answer.
“Before this, I’ve never heard of someone from the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect that’s proficient in devil energy. I know Qin Wentian and some among them had entered the Myriad Devil Islands. Could that masked expert be Qin Wentian or one of those who entered the devil islands?” An immortal king who was more knowledgeable about the adjudication battle, spoke.
“Impossible, how long has it been since that adjudication battle and how long did Qin Wentian cultivate for? Although he was at the ninth-level of immortal-foundation after the adjudication battle ended, how can the immortal king realm be so easily reached? Let alone, even if he really entered the immortal king realm, it’s impossible for him to have such combat prowess and this level of cultivation base. That masked man clearly is at the peak-level of the initial-stage. It’s impossible for Qin wentian to be him.” Someone spoke in a resolute and decisive voice.
“You are right, I was just making a blind guess.” That immortal king who spoke earlier nodded. His conjecture was truly a little over-exaggerated. It was basically impossible for that masked man to be Qin Wentian.
“Does no one know who he is? The attribute energies he is proficient in are: destruction, devil saber techniques and palm strikes. Think carefully, if someone like this is from the thirteen prefectures, his identity shouldn’t be tough to guess.” Paragon Sky Roc coldly spoke.
Everyone was frowning, they truly had no idea if there was such an immortal king character in the thirteen prefectures or not.
“Paragon, unless that masked man had never appeared before. If not, he should be reinforcements from the other powers that came to aid the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect. If not, it’s impossible for us not to know about him.”
“That’s right. All of them wore specially made masks to hide their identities. I feel that they must be reinforcements from elsewhere. We are very clear of the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect’s strength. Only a few tens of years have passed, how can they have so many powerful immortal kings? Clearly, they asked for aid from the Evergreen Alliance.” Another person supported this theory.
The eyes of Paragon Sky Roc gleamed with sharpness. The possibility of this theory being true was extremely high. After all, this time around, they…
“No matter who he is, remember, if you encounter him on the battlefield, all of you must do your best to take his life for the sake of his majesty.” Paragon Sky Roc coldly spoke.
“Definitely.” All the immortal kings nodded respectively.
The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor right now was raging in his emperor palace. Bai Wuya actually dared to destroy his immortal sense projection, wanting to kill his personal disciple. This act was simply arrogant to the extreme.
His killing intent towards Bai Wuya became increasingly intense.
After that, he gave out an order, commanding the armies to press forward, surrounding the Cloud Prefecture’s main city where the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect was located.
As for the other side, Bai Wuya and the rest didn’t continue to challenge the two other Eastern Sage Armies. They already killed a personal disciple of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor. How could their enemies not be cautious now?
The group of them directly returned to the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect, back to Bai Wuya’s residence, and all of them were clearly in high spirits.
“Our harvest this time around isn’t bad. Being able to kill a personal disciple of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, this should be enough to make his heart ache with pain.” The immortal kings removed their masks. Qin Wentian had first allowed the immortal kings from the Battle Saint Tribe to leave first earlier as after all, those gathering at Bai Wuya’s place were all disciples of the Heavenly Talisman Realm. The Battle Saint Tribe might be a power belonging to him, but the Heavenly Talisman Realm had its own rules. Nobody was allowed to flout them.”
“Junior brother Qin is really awesome, and is crafty enough.”
“Fellow brothers, why are you all in such a good mood. What happened exactly?” Those immortal kings who didn’t go, all crowded around now. When the events of what happened earlier were summarised, everyone started laughing uproariously. Their eyes gleamed as they stared at Qin Wentian. This junior apprentice brother was truly something, able to make the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect suffer like this.”
“Our battle achievements now are really not bad. Junior brother Qin alone slayed three immortal kings and crippled one. One of those he killed was even a personal disciple of Eastern Sage. Truly excellent indeed.” Bai Wuya nodded his head.
“If all of you didn’t coordinate with me, how can things go so smoothly?” Qin Wentian shook his head and laughed.
“Your strength is an important factor too.” Bai Wuya spoke. “However, you have to be extremely careful from now on. The Eastern Sage Immortal Sect will definitely pay attention to you. You should change your mask when you head out to the battlefield in the future. Also, the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect might be making their moves soon. Everyone should go prepare well.”
“Mhm.” Everyone nodded. The challenge battle this time around was just a warm-up. The war happening next is then the true challenge!
