Chapter 1714: Strong Opponents
“Sigh! I’m not even half confident. I might as well say that I am not at all confident!” Jiang Shenye sighed.
“Your cultivation is increasing too slowly!” Su Mo said. Although the speed of increase in Jiang Shenye’s cultivation was slightly higher than an ordinary warrior’s, it was still too slow.
“It is not slow. I have been collecting a few extremely precious Sky Treasures. I also have the help of Senior Xu Wushen. In a short period of time, my cultivation will still continue to increase. It is just that my competitors are too strong!” said Jiang Shenye solemnly.
“Who are the strong competitors?” Su Mo asked in a deep voice. He had heard of a few, but not all of them.
“Let me list them for you!”
Jiang Shenye said. He was extremely clear about all the powerful Geniuses in Ancientspirit Galaxy who were under a hundred years old.
Jiang Shenye fell silent for a while, then continued. “The first would be Wu Gong of the Sorcerer Tribe. His cultivation has already reached Sage-to-be and he has Twin Fighting Souls. He has Blood Spirit Body that is ranked 114 on the Archean Special Body Board. It has the most powerful skill – strongest Forbidden Sorcerer Skill ‘Blood Cloud Rebellion’.
In addition, there is the most powerful demon, Xue Juntian of my Three Deities Sect. Brother Xue also has Twin Fighting Souls. Although he does not have any special body constitutions, he has Archean Martial Skill. He has cultivated 64 Divine Elixirs and his combat power is invincible, comparable to that of a Martial Sage.
There is also Ju Shen from Giant Beings. He has cultivated a type of Nine Dragons Fighting Body. Its combat strength is equally terrifying. Its fist can shatter the star and has unrivalled strength and defence. Nobody of his level is his match.
There is also Hei Di of the Black Scale Clan, his cultivation is also of a Sage-to-be’s…!”
Jiang Shenye slowly introduced them as Su Mo listened quietly. He did not interrupt, but his brows were tightly furrowed.
Although he had already expected his opponents to be very powerful, he had belittled some Geniuses.
“Are you still half confident?”
Jiang Shenye asked Su Mo after a while of introducing the opponents. It was not that he wanted to demoralise Su Mo, but rather let Su Mo understand how terrifying his upcoming competitors were.
“Xue Juntian has 64 Divine Pills? How does he cultivate them?” Su Mo did not answer but asked back. He was also of Archean Martial Skill, however, back then he had tried his best to cultivate 49 Spirit Swirls and eventually merge them to form 5 Divine Pills. Yet, Xue Juntian had cultivated 64 of them. This was too shocking!
Of course, those 64 Divine Pills were definitely a condensed Spiritual Swirl and did not blend.
“How would I know? If I knew, I would have cultivated them too!” said Jiang Shenye. He was speechless.
“Blood Cloud Rebellion is very powerful?” Su Mo asked once again. Of the Forbidden Sorcerer Skills of the Sorcerer Tribe, he had only known of Souls of the Dead Skill. He did not know the others.
“Blood Cloud Rebellion is terrifying. If the same person exhibits it, it will be at least several times more powerful than Souls of the Dead Skill!” said Jiang Shenye.
Su Mo sighed. The pressure was immense. However, he was not too worried.
His cultivation now was increasing greatly, and so was his mental strength. He reckoned that Chaotic Energy could stabilise for a longer period of time. As as long as the cultivation rose, there was still a guarantee.
This time, he had to complete the mission of Myriad World Mountain. This was because if he failed to do so, he would be faced with death and the Sorcerer Tribe would not let him off.
“Other than the people I’ve mentioned, there are also a lot more powerful Geniuses. Qin Yun is one. Other sub-level forces include demonic Geniuses who have reached the Peak of Level 9 Martial Honoured Realm. They are not to be underestimated either!” warned Jiang Shenye.
Su Mo nodded and fell silent for a moment. He asked, “Brother Jiang, I am now wanted by the Sorcerer Tribe. This will definitely affect my participation in the Sky Dragon Battle. Do you think you could…?”
Without even finishing his sentence, Jiang Shenye waved his hand and interrupted him. He waved his hand and said, “You are doing this task for Myriad World Mountain. Brother Xu Wushen will naturally help you!”
“That’s great!” Su Mo heaved a sigh of relief. This was what he was worried about. If he were to appear, the Sorcerer Tribe would want to kill him. How was he going to participate in Sky Dragon Battle then? He would not even be able to complete his mission.
In the next moment, neither of them spoke as they fell into silence.
Su Mo looked at Jiang Shenye and laughed, “Brother Jiang, has this difficulty stumped you?”
Hearing this, Jiang Shenye smiled bitterly and shook his head. He said, “My talent is naturally not weaker than others. It is just that I have not cultivated for a few years. Time is too tight!”
Jiang Shenye felt helpless. If Sky Dragon Battle were to be held a year later, he would be confident of clinching the championship. Now, however, he was not confident.
“It is a lot of pressure. Let’s do our best!” Su Mo said in a deep voice. As long as they did their best, even if they did not succeed, he reckoned that Myriad World Mountain would not fault them
All his life, he had been advancing under pressure. If there was no constant pressure, he could not have grown to where he is now.
“Yes, let’s do our best!” Jiang Shenye nodded.
“Brother Jiang, if there is nothing else, I’ll take my leave!” Su Mo rose as he said goodbye to Jiang Shenye.
“Brother Su, the outside world is dangerous now. The Sorcerer Tribe is looking for you everywhere. Why don’t you stay in Three Deities Sect for a few days?” Jiang Shenye asked.
“It’s alright, I’ll be careful. See you at the Sky Dragon Battle!” Su Mo shook his head, He was not from Three Deities Sect and could not possibly continue to stay there. There would be no point in staying there for a few more days.
“Alright! I’ll send you off!” Jiang Shenye sighed.
Immediately after, Jiang Shenye walked Su Mo out of the mansion, all the way towards the gate of Sky City.
“Goodbye!” Su Mo cupped his fists towards Jiang Shenye and then rushed to the sky, disappearing into the endless boundary.
Seeing this, Jiang Shenye then went back to his own mansion.
After leaving Sky City, Su Mo quickly proceeded. He could not stay in Lake Guang.
He had already shown himself there and there was a risk of being found out by the Sorcerer Tribe. It would be best to change his location!
Lake Guang was huge. Su Mo headed east. After flying for an hour, he then managed to fly out of Lake Guang.
After leaving Lake Guang, a vast desert appeared in front of Su Mo. It was golden and boundless.
“This desert is a hiding spot!” Su Mo thought to himself. He was prepared to not go far and prepared to find a place to retreat in the desert to increase his cultivation until the Sky Dragon Battle.
After flying for a while in the desert, Su Mo descended and prepared to go into a sand dune below.
Just at that moment, an ear-piercing air breaking sound came up from behind.
Su Mo turned around, only to see that tens of thousands of miles behind, an incomparably sharp Sword Qi was in a white cloud, as if it were a white rainbow. It ran through the sky and flashed thousands of miles, coming towards him.
Behind the Sword Qi, a cold face appeared. It belonged to a beautiful woman. This person was none other than Fang Fei.
