Chapter 1977: Ranked High On The King Sage Board
Su Mo’s face remained calm as he did not hesitate to kill Di Yihun’s projection. No matter how strong the person was, 10% of his strength was nothing.
Di Yihun disappeared and the surroundings became peaceful. Su Mo continued to wait for the next test.
A few moments later, the space a few kilometers from Su Mo moved again. Di Yihun stepped forward again after being revived.
“You are not bad. From my experience as a test examiner, you are the most talented person!” Di Yihun stared at Su Mo and calmly said.
“What percentage of your strength are you using now?” Su Mo asked in a low voice. Di Yihun would become stronger and stronger until he displayed his peak combat strength.
“I am using the strength of the ranked 100th on the King Sage Board. If you defeat me, you will be ranked on the King Sage Board!” Di Yihun replied.
Su Mo nodded is head in understanding. He knew that Di Yihun would not be increasing his strength based on percentage in the next few battles. Instead, he would display the strength of the martial artists ranked on the King Sage Board.
The Di Yihun in front of him then would display the strength of the person ranked 100th on the King Sage Board.
Ranked 100th on the King Sage Board would be the strength of Di Sen.
“Take this finger strike!” Di Yihun roared as he attacked. Lifting a finger, he aimed the attack at Su Mo.
In an instant, sharp finger radiance shot out towards Su Mo.
This finger radiance was terrifying. Although it was only the size of a finger, the aura around it was strong enough to compare to the boiling lava in a volcano.
What was stranger was that the space which the finger shot through moved as well. Invisible space energy merged into the finger radiance, increasing its strength.
“Break!” Yet, Su Mo remained fearless. Although the attack was strong, it was equal to Di Sen’s attack strength.
With a sword pierce, boundless Chaotic Sword Qi swept forward, instantly colliding with the finger radiance.
A shattering explosion rang through Su Mo’s ears. As though two large missiles had smashed against each other.
Sword Qi crumbled apart while the finger radiance exploded into thousands of streaks that shot out in all directions.
Su Mo disregarded the long arrow like streaks that dispersed from the explosion. Light flashed out of his body as chaotic energy surged through him and he directly dashed towards Di Yihun.
His speed was incredibly fast, and in the blink of an eye, he narrowed the distance between him and his enemy to about a hundred meters.
“Destroy!” Su Mo attacked again, swinging his sword outwards. This sword strike was even stronger than before.
Dense chaotic Sword Qi was like a blinding, greyish-white pillar that cut through everything in its path. In a second, it sliced Di Yihun’s body.
Yet, Di Yihun’s body retreated backward sharply. At the same time, he played with his hands to form a palm print that smacked against the chaotic Sword Qi.
The area around the palm print shook from the force of it. Empty Space was vibrating as it added to the force of the palm print.
Booming sounds erupted through the pitch black area. Although the palm print was strong, it was no match for the chaotic Sword Qi and hence, it was directly broken apart.
The chaotic Sword Qi continued on its path forward, acting as though nothing could stop it. Instantly, it crashed into Di Yihun’s body, its speed not reducing at all.
Another explosion followed the destruction of Di Yihun’s body as it was torn apart by the Sword Qi. Waves of aura rolled out as the mirage was destroyed.
Su Mo’s face hardened. Although he had managed to defeat Di Yihun again. The next time would be tougher as Di Yihun would become stronger.
Inside the King Sage Hall, all eyes were focused on the stone pillar. Mo Jue, Long Teng, Linghu Tianhua and Sun Dashan’s names were flashing on the pillar.
Mo Jue’s name remained in the third place, not moving upwards. However, Long Teng’s name had risen from the tenth place to the ninth.
On the other hand, Linghu Tianhua and Sun Dashan’s names were rising quickly, but their ranks were low.
Linghu Tianhua was already ranked 58th while Sun Dashan was pushing through the ranks.
Right at that moment, the last rank name on the King Sage Board suddenly disappeared as it was replaced by the three large words, ‘Shangguan Hao’.
Light flashing from the name seemed to be blinding as it slowly appeared.
“What? That lad actually made it up the King Sage Board?”
“How is that possible? He is only an Initial Stage Martial Sage?”
“Could that man be like Su Mo, a godly talent? Or is he even more talented than Su Mo?”
“That Shangguan Hao couldn’t possibly be Su Mo right?”
Chaos erupted through the King Sage Hall. This matter was completely shocking. How did it make sense for an Initial Stage Martial Sage to make it up the King Sage Board?
Many eyes widened and this was a day where their knowledge would expand. Someone, an Initial Stage Martial Sage, had made it up the King Sage Board. It was unbelievable.
“Did he really make it up the board?”
The young man and lady also had widened eyes as they stared intently at the three large words, ‘Shangguan Hao’, on the stone pillar.
Their hearts had jumped in disbelief. While the two had known that Su Mo was extraordinary, they had not imagined that he would be so exceptional.
“Could he be Su Mo?” The lady guessed in her heart. After all, such a strength was too terrifying and she did not believe that there would be another godly talent aside from Su Mo in the Infinite Region.
Aside from Su Mo, who else in Infinite Region would have such strength that could enable him to overcome rank differences?
In actual fact, she was not the only one who had guessed that the stranger was Su Mo. Many others had also considered that possibility.
After all, there was a low chance that there was another talent like Su Mo. As such, the man called Shangguan Hao could be Su Mo.
However, there was no way for the crowd to verify anything. Perhaps there really was another godly talent.
“His name is still flashing. How far is he planning to reach?” the young man’s eyes brightened as an intense glare crossed them.
“I wonder what rank he will reach?”
“I am also curious!”
“He might be able to create a miracle, but it will already be terrifying if he manages to reach above the ninetieth rank!”
Many people buzzed among themselves. The moment Su Mo made it up the King Sage Board, he became the focal point of the situation.
Inside the blurry space, Su Mo stared at the Di Yihun that had revived again, carefully surveying his opponent.
It was evident that the new Di Yihun was even stronger. The aura around Di Yihun had become denser, thicker and even more mysterious.
“Shangguan Hao, your talents are exceptional and I am surprised by them. Now, I will display the strength of the 99th-ranked on the King Sage Board. Defeating me will allow your name to increase by another rank!” Di Yihun expressionlessly uttered.
“Can I not undergo a test rank by rank?” Su Mo asked in a low voice.
“Hm?” Di Yihun’s eyebrows furrowed together as a confused look passed his eyes.
“Just directly use the 50th ranked person’s strength and fight me.” Su Mo requested. Battling Di Yihun rank by rank would be far too slow.
Su Mo could not waste much time as he had to beware of Mo Jue leaving as he was in the stone pillar.
As such, Su Mo requested Di Yihun to directly use the strength of the 50th-ranked person.
Su Mo did not care much about that. If he won the battle, he would continue to battle, but if he lost, he might still be able to see the Hall Spirit.
After all, he was already ranked on the King Sage Board, although he was in the 100th place.
