Eternal Sacred King - Chapter 989 - No Retreating![Updated at: 2021-06-14 22:30:09]
Chapter 989: No Retreating!
Su Zimo sprinted and arrived at Hundred Refinement Sect before long.
“Uncle-Master, you’re finally back!”
Before long, he caught sight of Dao Lord Scarlet Star running over. The latter seemed relieved at the sight of him.
“Grandmaster Extreme Fire just broke through to the Conjoint Body realm and was looking for you.”
Dao Lord Scarlet Star brought Su Zimo to Hundred Refinement Sect’s main hall.
The hall was bright and spacious and some of the Hundred Refinement Sect experts who were guarding Dao Lord Extreme Fire’s breakthrough had just dispersed.
Right now, there were not many people left in the hall. Apart from Dao Lord Extreme Fire and a few other Hundred Refinement Sect cultivators, there was also Thousand Crane Sect’s Shangguan Zi, Ancient Array Sect’s Elder Gu and Elixir Yang Sect’s Elder Ge.
Su Zimo entered the hall and was shocked when he saw Dao Lord Extreme Fire.
Dao Lord Extreme Fire looked the same.
However, he stood there like a gigantic furnace that was burning furiously, fusing with the entire world and giving off an unshakable aura!
Even the strongest Dharma Characteristic could only control 90% of the Heaven and Earth powers.
As for Dao Lord Extreme Fire who had broken through to the Conjoint Body realm, he was like Heaven and Earth standing there!
“Zimo, come sit here.”
When Dao Lord Extreme Fire caught sight of Su Zimo, he beckoned with a warm gaze.
Su Zimo went forward and sat among the Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords and Conjoint Body Mighty Figures with a calm expression.
Dao Lord Extreme Fire asked, “Do you know about the news of Di Yin accepting your challenge at the Dao Inheritance Ground?”
Su Zimo nodded.
“What are your plans?” Dao Lord Extreme Fire asked.
“Accept the challenge!”
Su Zimo did not hide his thoughts and merely said three words in a resolute manner.
Dao Lord Extreme Fire’s expression did not change.
In the entire cultivation world, he was probably the only one who knew Su Zimo the best.
He was not surprised by that answer.
“Child, how much do you know about the Dao Inheritance Ground?” Shangguan Zi, who was at the side, was fond of Su Zimo as well due to who he was related to and asked with gentle voice.
“I know a little.”
Su Zimo said, “It’s an inheritance ground of the human race and I can’t make use of demonic methods inside.”
“Without your demonic methods, how confident are you of winning against Di Yin who is a major cultivation realm apart?” Elder Gu asked.
Su Zimo replied honestly, “I’m not confident at all.”
“Even so, you still want to go?”
Elder Ge frowned.
“I have to go.”
Su Zimo’s tone was resolute.
“Don’t be in a hurry to make a decision. I just received some news, listen to it.”
Dao Lord Extreme Fire said slowly, “Apart from Di Yin, Dao Being Heavenly Dipper, Dao Being Zephyr Thunder and Monk Formless will all be entering the Dao Inheritance Ground as well!”
Su Zimo’s eyes flashed coldly.
He could tell from the names of the three cultivators that they were the three great titular disciples of Heavenly Dipper Sect, Zephyr Thunder Palace and Formless Monastery!
The purpose of the three titular disciples rushing to the Dao Inheritance Ground was self-evident!
Perfected Lord Pang Lan of Heavenly Dipper Sect died in Su Zimo’s hands at the Thousand Crane Tea Party.
Zephyr Thunder Palace had always wanted to snatch the Purple Thunder Manual from Su Zimo.
As for Formless Monastery, their target should be the legacies such as the Creation Green Lotus and the Daming True Sutra.
Di Yin was already not confident of winning against Di Yin alone.
Moreover, there were now three more titular disciples!
Dao Lord Extreme Fire said, “Every sect only has a single titular disciple and there’s no need to elaborate on the strength of this disciple. Even if the three of them are weaker than Di Yin, they won’t be much weaker.”
Elder Gu nodded as well. “That’s right. Titular disciples are the face of the various major sects. Almost all of them have to spend thousands or even tens of thousands of years of resources to nurture one.”
Su Zimo went on a killing spree at the Thousand Crane Tea Party.
Even against the encirclement of eight Void Reversions, he was able to suppress all eight of them. What he relied on was his burst power of his dragonification after fusing with his scarlet-haired Yin Spirit!
If he could not use his scarlet-haired Yin Spirit, activate his bloodline or transform into a dragon, given his current combat strength, it would be difficult to predict the outcome against any of the titular disciples.
Noticing Su Zimo’s silence, Elder Ge said, “You might not know these three titular disciples since you’ve just arrived in the Middle Continent. All three of them were once the top of the Phenomenon Ranking and have never tasted defeat among the same cultivation realm!”
“The three of them have been famous for a long time and are the strongest monster incarnates of the current era with outstanding track records in battle! More than a hundred years ago, Dao Being Heavenly Dipper fought against the Asura of the current era and there was no clear victor!”
Su Zimo was shocked.
He had witnessed Yan Beichen’s combat strength personally.
The fact that Dao Being Heavenly Dipper could fight Yan Beichen with no clear victor produced was proof of his frightening combat strength!
Hesitation surfaced within Su Zimo’s heart.
He suddenly experienced tremendous pressure that was even suffocating.
The enemies he was about to face were way too strong!
If he were to enter the Dao Inheritance Ground this time round, he would have to face the greatest danger in his path of cultivation so far!
The tallest tree in the forest would be destroyed by the wind.
Su Zimo’s sudden appearance had finally triggered the greatest reaction of the super sects – they were willing to send forth their titular disciples just to kill him!
Dao Lord Extreme Fire said, “Apart from the three of them, I reckon Sword Sect will make a move as well.”
Sword Sect’s titular disciple was a Dharma Characteristic Dao Lord. Although he could not enter the Dao Inheritance Ground, Sword Sect would definitely not let Su Zimo off since he possessed the Heaven Slaying Sword Art!
Shangguan Zi said, “These are only confirmed news. There are still some unknowns and uncertainties. The actual situation you’re going to face will be even worse than what you know now!”
The Dao Inheritance Ground was not some secret space.
As long as one was at the Conjoint Body realm, they would be able to activate it. At that time, who knew how many cultivators would swarm in!
However, it was unknown how many of them were targeting Su Zimo.
Su Zimo frowned deeply and remained silent.
Everyone knew that he was facing a difficult decision!
If he were to back off, his life would not be in danger. With Dao Lord Extreme Fire as his backing, his future potential will be limitless.
If he entered, he would most likely die!
Shangguan Zi said gently, “Actually, you don’t have to feel burdened. None of us are agreeable with you accepting the challenge in the Dao Inheritance Ground.”
Dao Lord Extreme Fire nodded. “The Dao Inheritance Ground is a space created by many ancient Mighty Figures. It has a unique barrier that only allows Nascent Souls and Void Reversions to enter.”
“I’ve just advanced to the Conjoint Body and can help you open up the Dao Inheritance Ground. However, if you encounter danger inside, my power won’t be able to penetrate that barrier and I won’t be of any help.”
After a brief pause, Dao Lord Extreme Fire continued, “The Void Reversion Dao Beings of Hundred Refinement Sect can enter, but they won’t be able to withstand a single blow against any titular disciple!”
“They’ll only die for nothing if they enter to help you.”
Although his words sounded heartless, it was an undeniable truth!
None of the Void Reversions dared to enter the Dao Inheritance Ground and stand on Su Zimo’s side.
This meant that Su Zimo would have to face everything on his own once he entered the Dao Inheritance Ground!
Elder Ge persuaded, “You don’t have to make a decision in a hurry. You still have a month to consider. There’s still time.”
Dao Lord Extreme Fire and the others exchanged glances and prepared to retreat quietly, leaving Su Zimo alone.
“I’ve made up my mind.”
Just as Extreme Fire and the others arrived at the entrance of the hall, Su Zimo’s voice sounded.
“A month later, I’ll enter the Dao Inheritance Ground and accept all challenges!”
After saying that, Su Zimo felt as though all the pressure on his body disappeared instantly and he relaxed.
His Dao did not allow for any retreating!
