Painting Of The Nine Immortals Chapter 679He is leaving?
He is going to come back to take the rewards?
Everyone was staring with their eyes wide open. Looking at the disappearing Ling Xian, they were full of questions.
The leader of the Path of Array was extremely confused. He has been a leader for centuries and has experienced the Competition of the Four Paths many times. Yet he has never seen a winner act the way Ling Xian acted.
Not only was he late, which isn't a big deal, he also decided to store his rewards temporarily there even after winning the competition. What trick was he playing?
Why was he in such a hurry that he didn't even have the time to take his own reward?
The leader of the Path of Array was suspicious and suddenly remembered his nickname. He couldn't help but mumble, "Could it be that he is going to participate in the competition under the Path of Crafts?"
But very quickly, he denied this guess.
Because he realized that Ling Xian was, after all, a pupil under the Path of Crafts and the competition for that Path had started a long time ago.
In other words, if he was going to compete under another path, then the next destination wasn't the Path of Alchemy, but the Path of Cultivation.
"By now, the competition for alchemy should have ended. After all, their competition is pretty easy."
The leader was silent for a while and continued, "Based on how rushed he looked, he is probably planning on competing under all four paths. Since the competition for crafts and alchemy should be over by now, he should be heading to the fourth path."
As he spoke, he began to laugh and shake his head, feeling that this whole thing was a little ridiculous.
Though it wasn't rare for someone to try attempting the contest under multiple paths, very few people actually amount to something under multiple paths.
Therefore, he didn't think Ling Xian would be bored enough to be wasting his time like this.
Though he thought it was a ridiculous idea, he still somewhat believed in this guess. This made him laugh.
"Could it be that my guess is right? Xian Ling is really planning on winning all four paths?"
The leader frowned and quickly chuckled. "Oh well, why don't I go and check it out myself? I might as well check out what kind of Heaven's Favorite this generation has got."
Then, in a flash, he disappeared amongst the cloud.
Just as he left, everyone else followed him towards the fourth path.
Because for every single competition of the four paths, the cultivation path was always the last to finish. In other words, if they act quick now, they should be able to witness the most exciting part of the fight.
At the same time, the people from the Path of Crafts and Alchemy were all rushing towards the fourth path to personally watch the winner being born.
There were four peaks and three paths. The latter doesn't require much explanation. The former composes of the Peak of Dao, the Peak of Immortality, the Peak of War, and the Peak of Saint.
Amongst these peaks, the Peak of War had the strongest capabilities while the Peak of Saint was the weakest. Of course, this was speaking comparatively. Any peak's actual capabilities, if placed outside, would be considered first class.
This was why the Shang Qing Sect was considered to be one of the three strongest sects and ruled Yuezhou.
As one of the Shang Qing Sect's founders, the four peaks were naturally very important as well. Ignoring all else, their descendants sum up to tens and thousands. One peak's descendant could outfight the three paths combined.
What could they do? Under a world where capabilities are king, cultivation is the most important. Therefore, compared to these three profession based paths, most people choose to join the four peaks as part of the cultivation path.
This was why this path was considered the most fun to watch.
Because there were far too many participants, the competition still hasn't ended despite it starting since morning. Even now, it was still going on intensely.
It was already the afternoon and the eternal Sun was beginning to dim. The light it was emitting was no longer blinding.
On the empty field, 10 battle rings were set up. All of them were constructed using spiritual rocks that could absorb spiritual energy.
On top of every battle ring, were two silhouettes. Some were starting to battle, others were in the middle of fighting. All of the fights were aggressive and intense.
The different rays of spiritual energy expanded, shaking up the battle rings and startling everything around them.
Luckily, the battle rings could absorb spiritual energy and they were set up to block out Qi. Or else these 10 battle rings would've been destroyed by now.
On top of the battle rings, four silhouettes were suspending in mid-air. All of them had a heavy temperament about them and were emitting vibes similar to the profound sea.
They were the peak leaders of the four peaks.
Below the battle rings were seas of people. At a glance, everything was dark and it was an exaggeration to say that people were packed like sardines.
Amongst them were descendants of the four peaks and pupils from the other three paths. Many of them were also competitors who had already been eliminated but were staying to witness who will become the real winner.
Ling Xian was amongst them.
About half an hour ago, he had arrived. The reason why he didn't participate in the competition right away was that he thought it was too much work.
If he steps up now, then he would have to fight many battles. Therefore, he decided to enter himself into the competition at the very last battle.
After all, there were no time constraints with this competition. As long as he fits the prerequisites, it didn't matter when he participates.
"I will wait patiently. When it's time to determine the final winner, I will head up and challenge them."
Ling Xian stood calmly amongst the people. As he admired the battles before him, he waited for the final battle.
Currently, after many duels and competition, the original tens and thousands of competitors had decreased to just a few hundred.
Without a doubt, all of these people were considered to be top talents. To have endured all the duels until now has proven their capabilities. Perhaps they weren't considered to be much inside the Shang Qing Sect, but if they were outside of this sect, they would all definitely be considered to be geniuses.
This is what they meant when they say geniuses are worthless when your population size is high.
For example, a normal genius is probably one out of 10,000. How many people are in Yuezhou? Nobody had calculated that. But at the very least, there were 10,000,000,000!
To find this many geniuses amongst this high population was considered normal.
Out of all these geniuses, four people were the most dazzling. They were the top students the four peaks had seen in the past decade.
Every single one of them had the cultivation of those that belonged to the peak of the foundational level. Their battling capabilities also surpass everyone of their same level. Though they were not undefeatable, they were close to it.
Every time they fought against someone, the opponent either first tossed their white flag, or they knocked out their opponent with one hit. Their strength was outrageous.
Especially the descendant of the Peak of Dao, Leng Feng. He was extremely overbearing and was assumed to be the most likely winner of the competition.
As time went on, he defeated more and more people and his extreme capabilities were exposed before everyone. This made everyone certain that he would become the final winner!
What could they do, he was far too powerful.
Though his cultivation was merely of the peak of the foundational level, he was already acting like he was undefeatable. Between every movement of his, he emitted a grandmaster level of Qi.
In comparison, the descendants of the other three peaks paled.
Though they were still considered strong and in the entire Shang Qing Sect and it would be difficult to find opponents for them, compared to the undefeatable Leng Feng, they were definitely lacking.
To the audience, everyone was now even more certain that other than Leng Feng, nobody else could acquire the glory of winning the competition of the Path of Cultivation.
Now that the battles were reaching the end stage, the probability of him winning continued to increase. After he fights his final battle, he will become the new champion!
As for the last battle, his opponent was the strongest descendant of the Peak of Immortality. He was extremely capable. However, despite everything, he was weaker than Leng Feng. After a few rebuttals, he was slammed off the stage by Leng Feng.
This made the leader of the Peak of Immortality sigh. The entire arena boiled as well.
"Haha, Leng Feng won after all. I knew he'd win the final fight!"
"What a load of bullsh!t! Who said you were the only one who knew? Who here didn't think so?"
"Yeah, though I am part of the Peak of War, I still saw Leng Feng optimistically. After all, he is just far too capable."
"Exactly. How insane. Though the descendants of the other three peaks are also insane, they definitely pale in comparison."
Everyone chimed in and complimented Leng Feng's powerfulness.
The four important figures in the sky were also complimenting him non-stop.
"The Peak of Dao accepted such a great descendant. This descendant's capabilities are not far from being foundational undefeatable," the peak Leader of Saint exclaimed.
The peak leader was full of praise, "This young man has extraordinary capabilities and he is close to being undefeatable. Compared to what I used to be, he is not at all falling behind."
"Are you complimenting Leng Feng or talking yourself up?"
The peak Leader of Immortality glared at him and looked back at Leng Feng. "He truly is capable. He also has much potential. If we dig hard, he could really be pushed to the peak."
Though all of their pupils had lost to Leng Feng, they had a great mentality and would never be mad over something like this.
"He is far away from the undefeatable realm of the foundational undefeatable. But as for reaching the peak he will get there soon," the Dao Peak leader said softly. His tone was calm and he found it hard to conceal his happiness.
It was obvious that he was very satisfied with Leng Feng.
"How typical. You are complimenting your best product."
The leader of the Saint Peak teased, "Alright since your pupil has won then you can make the announcement."
The Dao Peak leader chuckled and stood up. His spine was straight and it made him appear as tall as a giant. As he straightened up, a heavy wave of grandeur washed over the entire crowd.
The originally excited people all shut their lips. Feeling like a mountain was forming behind them, they were having difficulty breathing.
The leader began to speak as he glanced over everyone with seriousness. Every single person lowered their head subconsciously and none of them dared to exchange glances with him.
For one, he had terrifying capabilities. For two, his position was close to the Supreme Headmaster.
As the entire place quieted down, the Dao Peak Leader smiled in satisfaction and he laughed brightly, "I hereby announce that the winner of the Competition of the Four Paths is"
Before he could finish, a round of laughter erupted from below, startling everyone.
"Please wait for me. I haven't even entered the competition."
At his voice, everyone froze and peered up.
The person who spoke was a man wearing all white. He looked merely 17 to 18 with an ordinary visage. However, his temperament was anything but.
It was Ling Xian.
Since there was now only one last man standing, naturally he had to participate. Or else he would have to kiss the winning title goodbye.
After everyone saw his face clearly, they all fell into a state of pure shock. Then, they began a clamorous and heated debate regarding Ling Xian's identity.
