Chapter 910 Fighting Chen Xuandong
Thirty million Genesis Qi stars twinkled in the sky, a grand sight accompanied by tremendous pressure. Countless spectators couldn't help but internally exclaim in admiration. As the ninth ranked on the Divine Dwelling List, Chen Xuandong was indeed an extraordinary individual whose strength could astonish almost anyone.
Although several factors would decide the victor in a fight, the basis of Genesis Qi was one of the main ones. Therefore, everyone understood that things were dire for Zhou Yuan when Chen Xuandong displayed his 30 million star Genesis Qi base.
From what Zhou Yuan had demonstrated two months ago in the fight with Lu Xiao, his Genesis Qi base should be at 21 million.
This was a giant gap of 9 million!
It was enough that one side easily crushed the other. Ordinary methods could not compensate for such a huge disparity.
The expressions of countless people from the hundreds of prefectures in the Tianyuan region turned grave as they looked through the mirrors.
Chen Xuandong stood proudly in the air, the Genesis Qi he cultivated shining with a pitch-black brilliance. It was a seventh grade Genesis Qi called Black Bicorn Corrosion Qi, and it possessed an extremely terrifying corrosive power. He was also one of the top-level Genesis Qi of the Three Mountain Alliance.
He showed a deep smile as he looked at Zhou Yuan. Chen Xuandong was obviously very confident in his abilities.
“Pavilion Chief Master Zhou Yuan. You'd better give me the participation rights for the nine regions tournament. Otherwise , he may not reach the third stage of the nine regions tournament with his skills. If that were to happen, it would only embarrass the Tianyuan region,” Chen Xuandong said.
Zhou Yuan's expression did not change; He didn't seem the least bit angry because of Chen Xuandong's words.
He knew that the other party was trying to anger him in hopes of affecting his condition. Chen Xuandong may seem domineering, but he was evidently also very cunning.
Zhou Yuan's calm voice sounded: "Although a 30 million star Genesis Qi foundation is strong, you may not be able to triumph over me today." He stepped forward into the air as three halos of chaos emerged behind him. Then, a Dragon's roar vibrated the air as boundless Genesis Qi surged out from his body, occupying the sky behind him like a vast and powerful cloud.
Genesis Qi flashed in the air, revealing 23 million Genesis Qi stars.
Although Zhou Yuan had spent most of the past two months on the last two spirit runes, his Genesis Qi cultivation had also grown. He now had 2 million more Genesis Qi stars, but this was roughly his limit. Any future growth would be extremely slow unless he unlocked the eighth Divine Dwelling.
However, there was still a 7 million difference between him and Chen Xuandong!
Chen Xuandong wore a faint smile, clearly unfazed by Zhou Yuan's Genesis Qi foundation. He shook his head and said, “Since Pavilion Chief Master Zhou Yuan does not wish to give the place to me, I have no choice but to take it myself.”
He made a seal with one hand.
His torrential black Qi roared as he surged forward like a dense black sea. A powerful pressure suffocated the place as the sea of black hovered over Zhou Yuan.
Zhou Yuan's eyes narrowed slightly as a sword orb rose from his palm.
The cry of a sword pierced the air. The sword orb transformed into a thousand-foot-long wave of sword light as it mercilessly slashed through the black sea with incomparable ferocity.
The sword light cut through the black sea, shattering it instantly. However, dense and endless black Qi fueled the sea, and wave after wave crashed into the sword light, continuously crushing it.
Within a few breaths, only a hundred feet of faint sword light remained.
Zhou Yuan clasped his hands and a mysterious glowing silhouette emerged around his body.
"Omega Holy Spirit Art!"
Zhou Yuan's aura skyrocketed and he dashed forward as if running along the body of a Green Dragon, charging straight towards the black sea. The sword orb shot towards his outstretched hand, and the sword light grew again.
Countless beams of sword light shot out, forcibly tearing the black sea apart.
Zhou Yuan's expression suddenly shook as he without hesitation sent a beam of sword light towards his right. A spear suddenly emerged from the air, accompanied by terrifying power.
The sword light and spear collided, but the sword light shattered after a few breaths.
A black figure appeared like a ghost. A thousand spears seemed to turn into stars in the sky as they rushed towards Zhou Yuan's vitals with powerful killing intent.
Chen Xuandong had finally moved.
Zhou Yuan did not dare to delay for even a single second. Sword light came out of his hand as a flashlight appeared in the other.
"Spiritual Lantern Art!"
Boundless spiritual fire howled from the lantern, directly attacking Chen Xuandong.
Evidently, Zhou Yuan had prepared this murderous bow beforehand and was just waiting for Chen Xuandong to appear.
“Hehe, I already know Chief Pavilion Master Zhou Yuan’s Spiritual Fire move.” However, Chen Xuandong did not show even the slightest hint of fear at the Spiritual Fire's howl, evidently already prepared for the deadly technique. With a grab of his hand, a black clay bowl appeared.
The bowl seemed to be filled with some sort of black liquid.
He directed the black liquid with his finger, and it flew into the air, turning into a torrent of black water. Endless cold Qi rose from the black water, cold enough to freeze even one's spirit.
The Spiritual Fire and the black water collided. A sizzling sound erupted as both parties extinguished each other.
Meanwhile, the black spear in Chen Xuandong's hand turned into an elegant shadow as it pierced through the air. The spear appeared right in front of Zhou Yuan and shot towards his eyebrows; The cruelty of the attack was enough to disperse even the Spirit.
Zhou Yuan's eyes widened slightly as the boundless sword light slashed downwards.
However, the sword light instantly collapsed as the two forces collided, and the sword orb was sent shooting towards him.
In that moment of danger, Zhou Yuan clenched his fist tightly as black hairs emerged from his pores, turning into a black glove around his hand. Genesis Qi surged forth layer by layer as the gauntlet slammed into the tip of the deadly spear.
Sparks flew as the surrounding space rippled.
Zhou Yuan's figure was sent flying as if he had received a heavy blow. The hairs that covered his fist shrank and blood flowed down his fingers. Chen Xuandong's terrifying attack had injured him.
The exchange was brief, but clearly showed the ferocity of both sides.
Anyone could tell that although Zhou Yuan had tried his best and repeatedly went on the offensive, Chen Xuandong had easily neutralized his attacks. In comparison, Chen Xuandong's sudden attack had immediately destroyed Zhou Yuan.
Chen Xuandong undoubtedly had the advantage.
This was not a surprise to everyone. After all, Chen Xuandong had the absolute advantage in terms of Genesis Qi fundamentals. Zhou Yuan's assault was basically similar to trying to break a stone with an egg.
Countless cries of unconditional mercy sounded throughout the 800 prefectures of the Tianyuan region.
In a round square in the Tianyuan utopia, the members of the four pavilions were silent, their expressions on the verge of despair.
In the sky above the Infinite Rift.
Chen Xuandong pointed his spear to the side and revealed a faint smile as he looked towards Zhou Yuan.
“Pavilion Chief Master Zhou Yuan, I have long heard of the astonishing four spirit runes of the Tianyuan region. If you don’t take them out now, I’m afraid you won’t get the chance.”
"Also, I am interested to see how many of the four spirit runes you have managed to acquire."
Zhou Yuan massaged his fist, the wounds on his face quickly healing as he pursed his lips. The opponent's 30 million Genesis Qi foundation was indeed very overwhelming. He had been unable to gain any margin even after using the sword technique, the Omega Holy Spirit Art, and the Spiritual Lantern Art.
Chen Xuandong was indeed a much more troublesome enemy than Lu Xiao. He was basically crushing Zhou Yuan due to the huge disparity between their Genesis Qi foundations.
However, Zhou Yuan's expression did not waver. Without further ado, two ancient runes began to glow on the back of his hands.
As the two spirit runes emerged, another ancient rune appeared between his eyebrows.
The third rune!
Several gasps of surprise echoed throughout the area.
However, when a light began to erupt from Zhou Yuan's chest in the pattern of an ancient rune, these gasps suddenly became even louder!
Four spirit runes!
When the four spirit runes appeared, the Genesis Qi undulations around Zhou Yuan began to rise steadily.
Chen Xuandong, who had seemed indifferent from the beginning, suddenly focused, not expecting that Zhou Yuan had acquired the four spirit runes!
He licked his lips as he muttered to himself, "It's finally getting a little interesting."
