Chapter 906 Challenge Letter
It was no surprise that the news of accepting the challenge caused another uproar in the Tianyuan region. The bordering lands cast countless glances, hoping to discover a little more about this significant challenge.
To the other factions, although the unwavering way in which the Tianyuan Region accepted the challenge seemed quite impressive, some of the sharper individuals felt that it was a hasty decision. After all, so to speak, his acceptance was equivalent to using one's own weakness to attack an opponent's strong.
The Three Mountains Alliance was clearly prepared and confident in Chen Xuandong. His ranking on the Divine Dwelling List also surpassed that of Zhou Yuan. To be frank, Lu Xiao probably didn't have the qualifications to face Chen Xuandong, so even though Zhou Yuan had defeated Lu Xiao, Zhou Yuan also didn't have the qualifications.
Once Zhou Yuan lost the battle, the Tianyuan Region would lose a great deal of face.
Putting the reputation of a region on a single Divine Dwelling stage practitioner was not very wise.
Furthermore, Chief Pavilion Master Zhou Yuan had delayed the fight by a month, making him seem lacking in confidence. Did you expect any progress at the final moment? It was said that the main pavilion master had only unlocked seven Divine Dwellings so far. Although his potential would turn into true strength when he unlocked the last two Divine Dwellings and he no longer needed to fear Chen Xuandong, time waited for no one.
Others wouldn't foolishly wait for you to grow up before challenging you.
Of course, there were naturally some voices that supported the decision. They felt that the Tianyuan Region had confidence since they had dared to accept the challenge. As for which new dark horse was stronger, the answer would only be known once Chen Xuandong and Zhou Yuan faced off!
However, the voices of support were the minority. After all, Zhou Yuan's ranking on the Divine Dwelling List was lower than Chen Xuandong's, and the Divine Dwelling List had always been very accurate.
When the Tianyuan Region's conditions for accepting the challenge entered the ears of the Three Mountain Alliance, the super dark horse Chen Xuandong immediately responded with two simple words.
"Ready at any time."
Simple and secure.
The four pavilions were also in an uproar over the matter. However, in the face of an external threat, everyone, even the disciples of the Heavenly Spirit Sect, temporarily put aside their differences to face the common enemy. After all, everyone understood that Zhou Yuan was currently the leader of their generation of Divine Dwelling stage practitioners.
If he lost to Chen Xuandong, it would be a tremendous blow to his reputation.
Therefore, even the Heavenly Spirit Sect disciples did not wish to see Zhou Yuan defeated.
The four pavilions were cheering for their pavilion leader.
The main building of the pavilion.
Yi Qiushui and Ye Bingling's expressions were somewhat grave as they looked at the crazy commotion outside. After a long time, Ye Bingling asked in a low voice, "Where is Zhou Yuan?"
"It's been in isolated culture for the past two months." Yi Qiushui sighed softly. She never imagined that Zhou Yuan would receive such a dangerous challenge so quickly after assuming the position of head pavilion master. Chen Xuandong was much more dangerous than Lu Xiao.
Ye Bingling gritted his teeth and said, "The Three Mountains Alliance is going more and more overboard."
Honestly, a top-tier faction challenging one of the nine regions was very rare in Hunyuan Heaven. Therefore, the members of the Tianyuan Region felt offended and angry.
“What did Zhou Yuan say? I heard that you accepted the challenge of your own free will?” Concern tinged Ye Bingling's voice.
Although the Three Mountains Alliance was disgusting, their ploy was too cunning. After all, if both sides fought, the Tianyuan Region would not fear the Three Mountain Alliance in terms of Law Domain stage or Nascent Source stage numbers. However, the Three Mountains Alliance only had to poke them at their weakness: the Divine Dwelling stage.
Regarding the Divine Dwelling stage, even the members of the Tianyuan Region had no choice but to admit that they had not done well in recent years.
Yi Qiushui nodded slightly. She already found out everything from her grandfather. In fact, Zhou Yuan had accepted the challenge letter.
Yi Qiushui said slowly: “Zhou Yuan is not a fool. "This matter is very important and I would not easily accept the challenge if I did not have a plan."
Having known Zhou Yuan for so long, she knew that he was someone who could patiently wait for his opportunity. Since he dared to accept the challenge letter, he had to have some kind of plan.
Yi Bingling let out a bitter laugh. He could only hope this was true. After all, Chen Xuandong had already appointed Zhou Yuan, and if he did not accept, it would be an almost fatal blow to his reputation. The other party had clearly chosen the moment very well.
As for what would come next...
This battle would be much more dangerous than Lu Xiao's.
The fire pavilion.
Lu Xiao, Zuo Ya, Zhu Lian and the rest were currently gathered. Naturally, they were discussing Chen Xuandong's challenge letter.
“Zhou Yuan is so arrogant. Do you really think that becoming the top pavilion master has made you invincible under the heavens?” Zuo Ya said in a resentful voice. In contrast to the faith that Yi Qiushui, Ye Bingling and the others had in Zhou Yuan, she did not believe that he was compatible with Chen Xuandong.
From what he could see, it was stupid of Zhou Yuan to recklessly accept the challenge.
If he was defeated, the Tianyuan Region's Divine Dwelling stage younger generation would become a laughing stock in Hunyuan Heaven.
Zhu Lian looked towards the contemplative Lu Xiao. "Big brother Lu Xiao, do you think Zhou Yuan has a chance?"
In this matter, they were in the same boat as Zhou Yuan: his glory would be his glory, his shame would be his shame. Therefore, no matter how unwilling they felt, they could only support Zhou Yuan.
Lu Xiao was silent for a moment before replying, “It will be very difficult. “If my estimate is correct, Chen Xuandong’s Genesis Qi foundation has probably reached almost 30 million Genesis stars.”
This terrifying number made Zuo Ya and Zhu Lain gasp involuntarily. Almost 30 million?
What kind of notion was this? One must know that even Lu Xiao only had 23 million, but Chen Xuandong had almost 30 million?
"Isn't it amazing." Lu Xiao said indifferently, “The top-ranked people on the Divine Dwelling List have been nicknamed 'Little Heavenly Suns'. Although there is still a gap between Chen Xuandong and them, it is not impossible that their Genesis Qi foundations have reached almost 30 million.”
“In my fight with Zhou Yuan, his Genesis Qi bases had only reached 21 million. “If he manages to unlock the eighth Divine Dwelling, he may be able to fight against Chen Xuandong.”
“The last two Divine Dwellings are much more difficult to unlock than the first seven. From what I know, Zhou Yuan has spent the past two months in the Four Spirits Origin Tower. Therefore, his focus should be on the mountain spirit rune and the forest spirit rune, which means that the possibility of him unlocking the eighth Divine Dwelling is quite low…”
"To be frank... even if he completes the four spirit runes, I don't think it will allow him to defeat Chen Xuandong."
With a grave expression, he looked towards Zuo Ya and Zhu Lian and slowly shook his head.
"That's why our new main pavilion master will probably be defeated this time."
