Chapter 914 Stable in ninth position
The result of the endless battle, in just a few days, passed to the ears of all parties concerned about the battle and caused a great uproar.
Chen Xuandong's defeat came as a surprise to many people.
This led many people to become interested in the head pavilion master of the Tianyuan region. It was unknown where the Tianyuan Region had found such a good seedling. With the leadership of this chief pavilion master, would they still rank last in the nine regions tournament?
Regardless, Zhou Yuan rose to prominence in the vast and endless Hunyuan Heaven after winning the battle against Chen Xuandong.
When the girl named Jiu Gong received the news, she was shocked for a long time.
"Hey, Senior Sister Jiu Gong, it seems like you made a mistake this time." A young female disciple chuckled.
Jiu Gong did not respond, but carefully read the news he had received, which recorded the battle between Zhou Yuan and Chen Xuandong in detail.
After reading for a moment, he raised his eyebrows slightly. “A second form of the four spirit runes? Two strength increases? A 42 million Genesis Qi foundation?”
He gently put down the jade bamboo blade, with a touch of surprise in his clear eyes. “This Tianyuan Region Chief Pavilion Master is truly amazing. He even developed the second form of the four spirit runes."
Almost all nine regions had a secret method to improve the Genesis Qi base, but very few were able to achieve this two-stage change. Furthermore, there were very few secret methods in the entire Hunyuan Heaven that could increase one's base by more than 20 million Genesis Qi stars.
"Senior Sister Jiu Gong, the top pavilion master of the Tianyuan region, may be in ninth place now, right?"
Looking at the smile on the girl's face, Jiu Gong couldn't help but cast an angry look at her. "I made a mistake, and you're happy?"
The young woman covered her mouth and laughed. After all, Jiu Gong had always been incredibly careful, and it wasn't often that someone saw her make a mistake.
Jiu Gong pursed his red lips. "He defeated Chen Xuandong, so the ninth place on the Divine Dwelling List naturally belongs to him, and Chen Xuandong will drop one ranking."
He shook his head, murmuring Zhou Yuan's name in his heart. It was only after a long while that he no longer thought about it. Indeed, Zhou Yuan had risen to fame after defeating Chen Xuandong, but that only meant that he had the qualification to compete with the other great prides of heaven in the nine regions tournament.
Furthermore, as a reviewer of the Divine Dwelling List, Jiu Gong knew that a base of 42 million Genesis Qi stars was truly amazing for the top prides of heaven, but compared to those ranked in the top eight, something was still missing.
It should be said that all of those monsters had the nicknames Little Heavenly Suns.
And Chen Xuandong was still some distance away from those monsters.
So, if the Tianyuan Region wanted to get rid of its usual lower ranking in the Nine Regions Tournament, Zhou Yuan would have to become stronger.
After all, the Tianyuan region was far behind the other eight regions.
How would it be so easy to catch up?
On a misty platform, Wu Yao, dressed in a bright red dress, looked into the distance, her hair fluttering in the wind.
In his hand was a jade bamboo slip that detailed the match between Zhou Yuan and Chen Xuandong.
“Senior Sister Wu Yao, you always foresee things accurately,” Lan Ting said with a smile.
His expression was somewhat strange because Wu Yao had been in that state ever since he received the news.
Hearing the voice, Wu Yao finally withdrew his gaze and said indifferently, "Zhou Yuan will probably be our biggest enemy in the nine regions tournament."
Lan Ting was surprised and immediately smiled, “Isn't Junior Sister Wu Yao thinking too much? He only defeated Chen Xuandong. Even I can do that easily, not to mention you. It's too much to say that he will be our greatest enemy."
He didn't understand why Wu Yao paid so much attention to Zhou Yuan of the Tianyuan Region.
The biggest enemy of the Wushen region? The Wushen Region's competition was Zhao Mushen from the Wanzu Region and Su Youwei from the Zixiao Region! Furthermore, even if it was Zhao Mushen himself, what rights did he have to compete with them?
Wu Yao kept an indifferent expression on her face and was too lazy to explain. He looked into the distance again. No one knew how dangerous Zhou Yuan was better than her. In his opinion, Zhao Mushen was indeed a great enemy, but this was obvious. On the other hand, Zhou Yuan was a Poison Dragon that was hiding in the darkness. Once it revealed its fangs, it could kill with a single blow.
If Zhou Yuan was not in the Tianyuan region and did not occupy a high and powerful position, Wu Yao would want to find an opportunity to get rid of this hidden danger before revealing his fangs.
As Wu Yao thought about the danger that Zhou Yuan would bring, a fiery battle intent erupted from the depths of his eyes.
“Zhou Yuan, no one will come to help you this time!”
"If you are only at this level, don't blame me for removing the Holy Dragon Qi from your body."
Many disciples from the Zixiao region gathered in a ring-shaped, arena-like building.
Everyone was looking at the center of the building where a bead was emitting rays of light. The light intertwined to form a light screen depicting two figures in a fierce combination. It was Zhou Yuan and Chen Xuandong.
The bead was the image holding stone of the Zixiao region, and it showed the match between Zhou Yuan and Chen Xuandong.
The battle gradually came to an end, ending in Zhou Yuan's victory.
Many exclamations broke out. It was clear that the result was not what the disciples expected.
"Zhou Yuan of the Tianyuan region is quite capable..."
“It is said that their Divine Dwellings have only opened to the seventh mansion. Once you connect to the ninth Divine Dwelling, how strong will your Genesis Qi base be?”
"It should not be underestimated."
At the forefront of the many disciples, Xue Jingtao withdrew his gaze. Compared to the others, who were gasping in shock, he seemed much more indifferent.
"Oh, Senior Brother Xue, what do you think of Zhou Yuan?" someone asked with a smile.
Xue Jingtao smiled. "It is not weak, but it is not so easy to stand out in the nine regions tournament."
"Does Senior Brother Xue have the confidence to defeat him?" someone asked curiously.
Xue Jingtao simply smiled. Although he did not answer the question, the arrogance contained in his smile revealed his answer. As a result, all the surrounding disciples sighed in admiration and began to congratulate him.
Xue Jingtao waved his hand and said in a modest voice, “I am nothing compared to Junior Sister Youwei.”
His gaze drifted to his right, where an elegant figure stood and walked down the catwalk toward him. It was Su Youwei.
Xue Jingtao discovered a joyful smile on Su Youwei's beautiful face.
His heart raced, and when Su Youwei was close, he said with a smile: "Given Junior Sister Youwei's strength, this battle must be a bit boring."
Su Youwei shook her head. “Zhou Yuan of the Tianyuan region has extraordinary potential. If he can connect all nine Divine Dwellings, only a handful of people in the nine regions tournament have a chance against him. Even I don't have much confidence in winning .”
“So, Senior Brother Xue, you should not misjudge people. Otherwise, you will get into trouble and I won't be able to save you."
He spoke softly, but his voice held an underlying warning. After speaking, he walked away, leaving Xue Jingtao standing there stiffly.
The match between Zhou Yuan and Chen Xuandong had created many waves in Hunyuan Heaven. Many people realized that the foundation of the Tianyuan Region was not weak despite having deteriorated over the years.
However, there were more people commenting that the battle revealed nothing. Everything still depended on the tournament of the nine regions.
If the Tianyuan Region still ranks last in the upcoming nine-region tournament, all of this would mean nothing. After all, the Tianyuan Region was one of the nine regions and it needed to follow the examples of the other top forces, not lower its status to compare with the Three Mountain Alliance.
The Nine Regions Tournament was the true measuring stone!
The battle between Zhou Yuan and Chen Xuandong seemed to be the prelude to the war between the major prides of Hunyuan Heaven.
