Chapter 1978: 50th Ranked
“Directly use the strength of the 50th-ranked?” Di Yihun’s eyes narrowed upon hearing Su Mo’s words.
What a confident lad. Was he thinking of being ranked in the top 50 on the King Sage Board as an Initial Stage Martial Sage?
“Is that possible?” Su Mo asked in a low voice.
“It is!” Di Yihun nodded his head. Since Su Mo was that confident, he would not reject the request.
With that, the aura around Di Yihun’s suddenly surged like an erupting volcano.
Su Mo’s face hardened. He would not underestimate his opponent as the strongest King Sage in Infinite Region after the ancient times. Even if Di Yihun did not use his top strength, Su Mo could not look down on Di Yihun.
The purple-colored, large sword in Su Mo’s hands was encircled with chaotic energy as Blood Force surged out of Su Mo’s body. Terrifying Sword Force filled the area.
Su Mo could activate more than fifty Fighting Souls by then. The Sword Force from the Sword Fighting Souls around Su Mo was so dense it was unimaginable. Godly light reflected off the sword, as though it could destroy everything it lit up.
Right at that moment, a large, long sabre appeared in Di Yihun’s hand as the space around his hand moved.
This long sabre appeared transparent like it was made of air. There was no aura around it but the sharpness of it could be felt by opponents
“Chaotic Sky Cut!”
With a loud roar, the transparent sword in Di Yihun’s hands slashed through the air towards Su Mo.
This domineering sword caused the space within a kilometer of it to start to vibrate as though there was a large void in space that sucked Sabre Qi into it.
Sabre Qi that emerged was transparent in color as though the saber strike out was the force of space.
Su Mo’s eyes narrowed at the sabre strike. He felt a strong Space Ultimacy in the sabre.
Although the force of the sabre wasn’t terrifying, it was mysterious and not comparable to an average strike.
With the Sabre Qi about to hit him, Su Mo did not hesitate to counter-attack.
A loud shout rang through the air as Su Mo waved his large sword down for dense chaotic energy to pour out into the boundless Sword Qi.
Like lightning, bright light shone off the Sword Qi before it heavily struck against the transparent Sabre Qi.
An explosion ruptured both the Sword Qi and Sabre Qi apart. Space broke apart as a large black hole appeared in the middle of the two opponents.
“Really godly!” A look of admiration crossed Di Yihun’s eyes. Over the few hundred thousand years of being the test examiner, he had never met such an exceptional person.
Su Mo’s face remained cold. Although the strength that Di Yihun had displayed was strong, it was not enough to defeat him.
Without retreating from the shockwaves of the explosion, Su Mo’s body flashed and he dashed towards Di Yihun.
Shoosh shoosh shooosh!
His arm waved continuously as streaks of chaotic Sword Qi rushed towards Di Yihun, covering the whole sky.
At the same time, he threw his left hand forward as seven-colored glazed light appeared. The Seven-colored Glazed Pagoda had been retrieved and it expanded in an instant, crushing Di Yihun under it.
Bam bam bam!
Di Yihun did not hesitate against Su Mo’s wave of attacks. The long sabre in his hand stretched out as Sabre Qi and Sword Qi collided, resulting in an earth-shattering explosion.
However, Su Mo’s attack was overpowering and Di Yihun had to retreat backward.
The Seven-colored Glazed Pagoda struck forward with a loud bang and a horrifying shockwave followed it.
Dazzling seven-colored glazed light that seemed indestructible directly burned shock waves of the collision. In the blink of an eye, it covered Di Yihun’s body.
Di Yihun evidently knew the strength of the Seven-colored Glazed light as he dodged to one side, retreating a few kilometers away.
“Shangguan Hao, you have won!” Di Yihun said in a loud voice. With that, his body slowly crumbled apart before it ended up as no more than a wave of energy.
This happened very quickly and Di Yihun’s decisiveness took Su Mo by surprise.
Su Mo slowed himself down. It seemed that he did not need to kill Di Yihun in the test.
It would be considered that he won if he defeated Di Yihun in battle.
Around the stone pillar inside King Sage hall, a group of people were gathered.
“Who in the world is this Shangguan Hao? I have never heard of such an exceptional person!”
“I feel that it is highly possible that this person is Su Mo!”
“There is that possibility, but we can’t verify it for now!”
“If it is Su Mo, he might really be able to make it above the ninetieth rank!”
The discussion voices had not stopped ever since Su Mo had left his name on the King Sage Board. He was the person that most people were paying utmost attention to.
Compared to Mo Jue, Long Teng, Sun Dashan and Linghu Tianhua, the Initial Stage Martial Sage Su Mo was even more terrifying.
“I feel that there is an 80% chance that he is Su Mo…!” The eyes of the young man shone brightly as he stated. Before he could finish his sentence, however, his eyes suddenly bulged widely as his mouth gaped.
Right at that point, Shangguan Hao’s name suddenly jumped from the 100th rank to the 50th rank.
Pst pst pst!
Numerous cold breaths were sucked in as everyone stared in disbelief at what they saw. Utter shock swept over the crowd.
Shangguan Hao was ranked 50th?
From rank 100 to rank 50, he had jumped over 50 experts in a single shot.
Previously, the crowd had still been guessing whether Shangguan Hao could make it above rank 90. Yet, all of a sudden, Shangguan Hao was ranked 50!
“That… how could this be?” The pretty young lady’s face was wiped with surprise as her red lips stretched wide open.
Shangguan Hao actually surpassed Linghu Tianhua and Sun Dashan in one shot.
She could not believe it at all. How strong was Shangguan Hao?
It wasn’t possible for an Initial Stage Rank Martial Sage to have the strength to be ranked 50th on the King Sage Board.
“I am sure that that man is Su Mo!”
A few moments later, the burly young man regained his senses as he confirmed in a serious tone. With that, he continued, “In this entire Infinite Region, I do not believe that there will be another person as exceptional as Su Mo!”
“Indeed, there can’t be a second Su Mo in Infinite Region!”
“Perhaps… that person isn’t Su Mo, but an expert who has hidden his cultivation rank!” Someone made a guess.
“That seems possible as well. That man might be a King Sage who purposely hid his cultivation rank.
The crowd buzzed among themselves. The majority felt that Shangguan Hao was Su Mo but there were also a few that thought that Shangguan Hao was an expert who had hidden his cultivation rank.
“Look! Long Teng is ranked 9th!” Right at that point, someone announced.
“Linghu Tianhua is also 52nd!”
“Sun Dashan isn’t slow either, he is 55th!”
Many people exclaimed in surprise. This time, the four godly talents and the Shangguan Hao stranger had really brought an intense show for them to watch.
Before long, how far each of them could reach would be known.
