Chapter 972 Chaos in Starry Space
Out of the Fallen Abyss.
The many Law Domain experts were sitting in the air, staring at the mirror that reflected the starry sky in the depths of the Fallen Abyss.
They were currently watching the outcome of the battle between Zhou Yuan and Xu Ming.
Space distorted and Xu Ming was eliminated.
This result made even the Law Domain experts' eyes flutter a little before several of them looked at Chi Jing in surprise. Even existences like them were a little surprised by this ending.
People like them could naturally see Zhou Yuan's enormous potential. Once he unlocked his ninth Divine Dwelling, he would gain the strength to compete with the top four.
However, Zhou Yuan had yet to unlock his ninth Divine Dwelling when he eliminated Xu Ming.
That silver battle armor was quite amazing.
Amidst the surprised gazes of the Law Domain experts, Chi Jing's mocking body relaxed slightly as happiness crossed the depths of his eyes. He knew that having so many powerful enemies around put Zhou Yuan under tremendous pressure, but he had finally managed to endure it.
After all, as someone who was regarded so highly by his master, this younger brother of hers had an excellent character.
“Hehe, Zhou Yuan's silver armor is quite interesting. Could it be one of the Saint Artifacts from the Tianyuan Region?” laughter suddenly sounded.
It was Zhao Xiansun. He smiled as he looked at Chi Jing, then shifted his gaze to another Law Domain expert. “If so, Lord Zhen Yu, Xu Ming’s loss is not shameful.”
Zhen Yu was the Law Domain expert of the Yaogui region.
He had light skin and no eyebrows. A shiny bead was currently spinning in his hand. His expression didn't look very good. After all, he didn't expect Xu Ming to be the first to be eliminated. Since this happened, it was very likely that the Yaogui Region would rank last this year.
Chi Jing chuckled. No doubt Zhao Xiansun was trying to stir things up. However, Zhen Yu and Zhao Xianxun were clearly in cahoots and had repeatedly attempted to suppress the Tianyuan region. As such, seeing Zhou Yuan eliminate Xu Ming pleased Chi Jing greatly.
Chi Jing said indifferently: “Zhao Xiansun, even ordinary Law Domain experts are unlikely to possess a true Saint artifact. Even if these young Divine Dwelling practitioners obtained one, how much power could they draw? After all, you are a Law Domain expert, so how can you say such ignorant things?”
Zhao Xiansun's face twitched. He smiled weakly and retorted, “Who knows what kind of madness your Tianyuan Region will resort to when it backs itself into a corner?”
He waved his hand as he continued, “But it doesn't matter. This is the limit of good luck of the Tianyuan region. “Once Zhao Mushen is free, I’m afraid Zhou Yuan will no longer be left standing.”
Chi Jing replied: “It may not be like that. If Zhou Yuan manages to unlock the ninth Divine Dwelling, it may be Zhao Mushen who will have to pay his previous debt.”
Zhao Xiansun did not respond. He simply shook his head in disdain.
The fires of battle rose into the starry sky as maddened explosions of Genesis Qi rose into the sky.
The situation had become exceptionally intense and chaotic.
Not only had the apex proud heavens of the eight regions begun to compete for the stone statues, but even the slightly weaker proud heavens had begun to move. However, his target was the smallest stone statue in the last place.
Normally speaking, since there were only nine statues, only apex practitioners from the nine regions were qualified to compete for them.
However, no one could have predicted that Zhou Yuan would have eliminated Xu Ming from the Yaogui region at the beginning of the fight.
Since it happened, there was now an additional statue. After all, Zhao Mushen, Zhou Yuan, and the rest of the Proud Apex Heavens couldn't occupy two statues at once. Therefore, the other noteworthy proud heavens of the nine regions would compete hotly for the final stone statue.
A storm of blood soon arose above the ninth stone statue.
In the depths of the starry sky, Zhao Mushen, Wu Yao, and Su Youwei had zeroed in on the largest and oldest stone statue.
This statue was extraordinary. The terrifying Genesis Qi formed an extremely terrifying Genesis Qi barrier around him. Due to the thickness of the barrier, even Zhao Mushen's trio could only slowly make their way in one step at a time.
The slightest lapse would result in them being expelled from the barrier.
Evidently, the first requirement to reach the oldest stone statue was that the foundation of Genesis Qi must have reached an astonishing level.
Behind the trio, Wang Xi of the Xuehai region, who was ranked fourth on the Divine Dwelling List, was also attempting to break through the Genesis Qi barrier.
However, his expression darkened when he realized that he could not move forward even after pouring out all of his Genesis Qi. His speed of pushing the barrier could not match the speed at which he was being expelled. After wasting half a day trying, I was still stuck in the outermost area.
From this, it could be seen that there was still a gap between him and the other three.
Still, at least I had the ambition to try. Li Tongshen didn't even look at the first statue and instead sensibly chose the fourth one.
However, the fourth statue was also not peaceful because Jiu Gong and Yuan Kun also arrived at this time.
Sparks flew as the trio's gazes met. They then began to break through the Genesis Qi barrier. One could say that a battle would surely follow after they broke through. Only the final winner would have the right to occupy the statue.
After all, everyone wanted a better statue because the resources it contained would be greater. Therefore, no one would willingly give up without a fight.
As a result, the starry sky split into three waves.
The first wave was, of course, Zhao Mushen, Wu Yao, Su Youwei, and Wang Xi, who were still trapped in the outermost region of the barrier. They were the most powerful in the tournament.
The second wave was Li Tongshen, Jiu Gong and Yuan Kun.
The third wave was at the ninth stone statue where numerous sky-prideers, second only to the top, agitated relentlessly.
It was a pretty chaotic mess.
Amidst the chaos, Zhou Yuan's stone statue was the most peaceful. No one came to bother him.
After all, those with the strength to compete for the other statues. Although the proud of heaven without sufficient strength were tempted, they did not dare to provoke him following Xu Ming's example.
Therefore, Zhou Yuan sat quietly with his eyes tightly closed amidst the chaos, his mind slowly entering the stone statue.
Inside the statue was a glorious glow, and at the core of the glow, he saw a crystal skeleton.
Pure and tremendous Great Qi rippled like a sea. After solidifying, the Genesis Qi had slowly formed each grain of the stone statue. Evidently, the entire statue was made of the skeleton's solidified Genesis Qi.
Zhou Yuan's heart raced when he felt the enormous amount of pure Genesis Qi.
He knew that it was finally time to unlock the ninth Divine Dwelling.
