Chapter 965 The young heroes meet once again
Ancient statues stood deep in the starry sky, emitting mysterious auras. A total of nine stood in line from oldest to oldest. The final statue was ten thousand feet tall, mottled and ancient like a god gazing at the starry sky.
As Zhou Yuan gazed at the statues, his Divine Dwelling trembled frantically as if his Genesis Qi was about to go out of control.
He suppressed his Divine Dwelling with some difficulty, but was unable to control his irregular breathing. He knew that his Divine Dwelling had reacted because he had sensed Alpha Spiritium.
In other words, the nine mysterious statues contained an enormous amount of Alpha Spiritium! The amount was definitely incomparable to the few pathetic strands from before…
It was likely that the larger the statue was, the more Alpha Spiritium was inside…
Zhou Yuan cast his gaze at the final statue. That ten thousand foot tall monstrosity would definitely become the most intensely fought over thing in the nine regions tournament. Whoever managed to occupy it would possibly become the champion of the tournament!
His eyes blinked thoughtfully as competitiveness rose within him.
As Zhou Yuan was looking at the nine ancient statues, the sound of rushing wind rang out. His gaze turned and he saw numerous pieces of equipment emerging from various spatial cracks.
The silent starry sky immediately became quite noisy.
"So many?" Behind Zhou Yuan, Yi Qiushui suddenly blurted out in surprise: “Have all the remaining teams passed?”
Zhou Yuan looked at the surroundings and nodded. “The nine regions tournament has already entered its final stage. At this stage, ordinary members will no longer be of much use."
He nudged the ancient statues deep in the starry sky and said, “They are the keys to deciding the final ranking. Ordinary people won't be able to get close."
He could feel a tremendous amount of Genesis Qi pulsing from within the nine statues. The Genesis Qi formed barriers that ordinary people could not pass through. Therefore, only the apex Divine Dwelling experts of the various regions could approach and occupy the ancient statues.
The other teams could only watch as spectators from the outside.
Zhou Yuan said to Yi Qiushui: "Send the signal to gather the rest of our brothers."
As teams flooded into the domain, numerous signals exploded in the starry sky as each region began to gather its members.
Yi Qiushui nodded in recognition. He immediately retrieved a signal flare before launching it into the sky.
The flare exploded into the air as the flames condensed into the shape of a tower.
After a brief pause, gusts of wind suddenly sounded as two teams rushed towards them. They were led by Lu Xiao and Ye Bingling, respectively.
When they saw Zhou Yuan, relief immediately appeared on their previously grave faces.
"Head Pavilion Master."
The two teams arrived in front of Zhou Yuan and respectfully cupped their fists at him.
Zhou Yuan watched the teams. He could tell that they had fallen on hard times and suffered substantial losses.
Under Zhou Yuan's gaze, Ye Bingling reported with embarrassment: “My team has collected 1,000 Spiritium strands but has lost 132 members. “They were all eliminated.”
There was a complicated look in Lu Xiao's eyes as he also reported, “My team obtained 1300 Spiritium Strands and lost 89 members. “All of them were also eliminated.”
Zhou Yuan said in a low voice: “It has been difficult for you. The Tianyuan region is the weakest in this tournament, after all, and I know that you guys have done everything to get here. “I also have something important to tell you… Han Yuan’s team has been completely eliminated.”
The faces of Lu Xiao, Ye Bingling, and the others changed instantly.
An entire team eliminated... who would be so cruel?
"It was Xu Ming from the Yaogui region." Yi Qiushui gritted his teeth in anger.
Anger appeared on the faces of every member of the Tianyuan Region. Xu Ming was from the Yaogui region's main team, yet he ruthlessly dealt with one of the Tianyuan region's sub-teams. What a shameless bastard with no respect for the rules.
Zhou Yuan waved his hand to subdue the angry crowd. "At the end of the day, it's because we are weaker than them, but I won't forget this matter."
He then raised his head and looked towards some of the floating islands in the distance.
As several signals rose into the air, the numerous teams that were flooding the domain finished gathering into their groups, creating a rather impressive sight.
Zhou Yuan suddenly felt an icy gaze on him, and immediately looked towards one of the floating islands in the distance.
Numerous figures were gathering towards the island. At the highest point of the island, a figure looked down at him darkly. It was Xu Ming from the Yaogui region.
Seeing Zhou Yuan look over, a shallow smile rose from the corners of Xu Ming's mouth as he wordlessly conveyed, “Pavilion Chief Master Zhou Yuan, do you like the gift I sent you?”
The gift he was referring to was obviously eliminating Han Yuan's team.
Zhou Yuan's expression remained indifferent. He only gave Xu Ming a single glance before looking away, unaffected by the provocation. Let him jump while he can. There will be a chance for revenge later.
The teams from the other six regions gathered on many floating islands, and the groups grew larger and larger.
He soon found the Zixiao region. A familiar figure stood at the front of the group. It was Su Youwei. Beside him, Xue Jingtao was saying something while occasionally casting a cruel glance in Zhou Yuan's direction. He was probably telling Su Youwei about how Zhou Yuan had chased them away earlier.
Su Youwei's beautiful face remained calm. No one knew if she was happy or angry.
Even further away, Wu Yao stood proudly at the front of the Wushen Region group. He looked towards Zhou Yuan with his long and narrow eyes, evidently not surprised that he had come this far.
She had never underestimated him before.
However, she would still defeat him.
She wanted to prove that she was the perfect host of the Holy Dragon's blessing.
Among the many groups gathered, the Wanzu region undoubtedly created the largest presence. At the front of the giant group, Zhao Mushen stood with his hands behind his back, his immeasurable aura was similar to a bottomless abyss. Many experts only felt suspicious towards him.
Beside Zhao Mushen was a beautiful young woman. It was Liu Qingshu, and both of them were looking at Zhou Yuan.
A sliver of surprise flashed across Zhao Mushen's bottomless eyes as he looked deeply at Zhou Yuan. The fact that Zhou Yuan could be here meant that he had neutralized Zhao Mushen's killer move.
Liu Qingshi gritted his teeth in hatred as he looked at Zhou Yuan. “First big brother, you can't let that tactless guy go. When I met him previously, I originally wanted to share some Spiritium with him out of goodwill. But in the end, he used force to drive us all away, giving our Wanzu Region no face!"
"I underestimated him." Zhao Mushen chuckled as he slowly shook his head. However, a hint of interest appeared in his eyes.
The failure had not affected his mood. It was good that Zhou Yuan had not died because of his technique. Zhao Mushen could now take advantage of this opportunity to capture Zhou Yuan alive.
His eyes like a bottomless abyss focused on Zhou Yuan as an astonishing pressure slowly spread from his body.
The originally noisy sky suddenly fell silent as countless gazes looked on in fear. Was Zhao Mushen going to move?
Who was their target?
They quickly followed Zhao Mushen's gaze, only to be stunned.
Zhao Mushen was going to attack Zhou Yuan?!
Zhou Yuan was too unlucky!
