Chapter 1292: The Most Outstanding
Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
It was not just Su Mo who had doubts, everyone in the public square was puzzled. Wu Ren Wang did not enter the Pagoda, but instead flew directly to the top of it!
Was passing through the three level space in the Pagoda considered too easy? This was ridiculous!
At that moment, Wu Ren Wang was seen to be cupping his fist in front of his chest. He said solemnly, “High Priest, Fourth Priest, and Core Elders, I think there is no need for me to enter the Pagoda.”
When the Core Elders heard this, they looked at the two Priests. With the two Priests around, they did not dare to make a decision.
“For this stage, you don’t have to go! It counts as a pass!”
Wu Ren Wang nodded as a smile appeared on his face. He glanced around the square with an overwhelmingly confident look on his face. Nobody could stop him in this Young Priest selection! Countless of geniuses in the Tribe had already witnessed his glorious feats.
When the other candidates saw this, they were indescribably envious. He did not have to overcome the ordeal and was given a pass. This was simply driving them mad!
This spelled trouble!
However, the audience did not feel resentful towards Wu Ren Wang, this first stage would be a breeze. There was no difference if he cleared it or not. At the previous Young Priest selection five years ago, Wu Ren Wang’s power was no weaker than Wu Ling’s. After battling for more than ten hours, Wu Ling eventually emerged victorious by only half a move, and became the Young Priest in the end. As such, for Wu Ren Wang, the first stage was simply for show. It was no big deal if he did not do it!
Su Mo’s gaze was indifferent. The other man might be incomparably more powerful, but Su Mo had as much confidence as Wu Ren Wang that he would win.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!!
A while later, a large number of Sorcerer Tribe geniuses hesitated no more and started moving, rushing towards the Three Floored Pagoda. The numerous young Sorcerer Tribe geniuses were like a long river, flowing into Three Floored Pagoda. Even though the Pagoda was not that big, it was a free space that could accommodate hundreds of millions of warriors.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!!
A large number of geniuses filed inside. In an instant, there were as many as a million people who entered the Pagoda. Wu Tian Yu, Wu Ma, Wu You Lan and other super geniuses successively entered the Pagoda. However, less than a tenth of the people in the square had entered Three Floored Pagoda, as many young Sorcerer Tribesmen had given up the idea of participating in the challenge. To break through barriers of the Three Floored Pagoda, one would have to battle Young Priest Wu Ling. Even thought it was not all of Wu Ling’s power, 70% of Wu Ling’s power was the point where many people would fail hopelessly.
As such, those ordinary geniuses who had intended to participate in the selection previously gave up on the idea of overcoming obstacles in the Pagoda. They knew that it was simply impossible for them to become a Young Priest, hence they were not that disappointed.
Su Mo saw that there was nobody else entering the Pagoda. He picked up his pace and was the last to cross through the door of the Pagoda.
After entering, the scene before Su Mo’s eyes changed and he appeared in a space that seemed illusory. Looking around, he did not discover anyone else. It seemed like everyone had been separated. A young man clad in white stood before him in the space, quietly looking at Su Mo. The facial features of the man were slightly ordinary. His body seemed to integrate into the surrounding space, giving the sense of an intangible illusion. The aura of the person was not that strong. He had the same cultivation as Su Mo and had also reached Rank 3 Martial Emperor Realm.
Su Mo knew that this was the victor of the previous Young Priest Selection, the projection of Wu Ling. However, he did not mind that the first level of Wu Ling’s projection was only 30% of the Young Priest’s power.
Just at that moment, Wu Ling’s projection slowly walked towards Su Mo. Every step he took caused the illusionary space to shake, and a powerful wave of aura rose from his body. Without saying a word, the projection of Wu Ling suddenly pointed at Su Mo.
In an instant, as if it were a giant beam of light, a vast and sharp stream of power shot out from his finger and violently charged towards Su Mo. This beam of light seemed as if it were a giant drill. Before it arrived in front of Su Mo, it started to spin rapidly, grinding and smashing everything in its path, producing a roar that reverberated through the air.
The speed of the Finger Beam extremely fast. In an instant, it entangled and smashed the space and arrived in front of Su Mo.
Sword Radiance flashed as Su Mo let out a cry and violently slashed his sword at the Finger Beam. The sharp Sword Radiance wrapped up the Ghost Qi that was shooting up in the air. In an instant it destroyed the vast Finger Beam.
With the sound of an explosion, the Finger Beam immediately shattered to pieces and turned into an air current that filled the entire Pagoda.
“Go and die!” Su Mo did not stop. Once again he attacked with his sword and slashed his three times. Three streaks of incomparably vast black Sword Qi charged towards the projection of Wu Ying. The power and momentum of the three streaks of Sword Qi were shocking. The power of the Ghost strength was vast and the murderous power surged.
Faced with Su Mo’s forceful attacks, Wu Ling’s projection immediately started to resist, yet seemed to be unable to do so. The three streaks of Sword Radiance made surprise killing attacks, instantly ripping the projection of Wu Ling to pieces and causing it to dissipate into the air.
“Indeed not bad!” Su Mo whispered to himself. Under the circumstance that Wu Ling’s projection and him were of the same Realm, the fact that 30% of the former’s power had such Fighting Strength was already extremely powerful. According to this calculation of Fighting Power, when it reached the Third Level the other party would use 70% of his power. Su Mo estimated that if he did not use his Fighting Soul, it would be hard to deduce his victory or defeat.
After a while the illusory space gradually became clear and a staircase appeared in front, leading to the next level. Without hesitating, Su Mo walked over to the second level.
Meanwhile, in the outside world, on the Grand Sorcerer Grounds.
When Su Mo had cleared the level, the outside world was already in chaos. A large number of Sorcerer Tribe geniuses were spurting out blood from their mouths, flying upside-down out from the Gate of the Pagoda and scattering all over the floor.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
It was simply an endless flow, like they were scrambling to get out as there were constantly people who flew upside-down out of the huge gate. Some of them who had entered the Pagoda didn’t even last half a breath before they were eliminated with serious injuries. Even though the battle was only with the projection of Wu Ling and the first level of projection used just 30% power, there were still a large number of people who were eliminated.
“Thank goodness we did not go in!”
“That’s right! Otherwise, if we did not even pass the first level, it would have been so shameful!”
“I reckon that less than 500 people will clear all three levels and eventually reach the top of the Pagoda!”
Many of those who did not enter the tower started chattering. They could not help but gasp in their hearts and secretly praise themselves for having such good foresight. Many looked at the Pagoda and saw Wu Ren Wang sitting cross-legged at the peak. His eyes were closed tight and he did not care the slightest bit about the situation of those stages. Although there was no explosion of power while sitting at the peak of the Pagoda, the crowd could get a sense of Wu Ren Wang’s potential.
Without having to fight, he was already cleared. Who would have this kind of treatment?
The crowd was green with envy. They reckoned that in this Young Priest selection, Wu Ren Wang would eventually emerge victorious. This was almost a sure fact.
Or, Wu Ma and Wu You Lan also stood a chance, however small it may be. It would be hard for the two of them to challenge Wu Ren Wang. As for the other super geniuses, their chances were even slimmer, almost negligible.
