PMG Chapter 1955: The Top Ten
Wang Zhong looked at the ten cultivators. He didn’t even consider challenging the cultivators of the top five. Ying Cheng and Ji Chang were too strong, both were Champions. Guili was too evil and knew the Ghosts Sutra. The stone man, Shi Yun Feng, was incredibly strong. Xue Shen Feng was from the Snow Clan and Wang Zhong knew he couldn’t defeat him. Chu Chun Qiu was also too strong. So he could only choose among three people: Yin Gu Tian, Lin Feng, and Xie Yue.
The audience was astonished at all this and kept gasping with amazement. These people were the strongest cultivators of the Holy City among the people of the Huang Qi layer, true geniuses. If they offended any of them, they’d die!
Lin Feng had defeated Xie Yue, so he didn’t want to challenge Lin Feng for now. He didn’t have many choices. He looked at Xie Yue. Xie Yue looked back at him icily, turning furious. Wang Zhong wanted to fight against him? Lin Feng had already defeated him today!
“What is this supposed to mean?” said Xie Yue icily. Wang Zhong chopped out with his palm, and many armors appeared in the sky, all of them dazzling.
“Evil corrosion!” shouted Xie Yue furiously. A furious dragon made of corrosive evil strength flew towards Wang Zhong, and the air above him turned into a black hole.
“Ten Thousand Armors Lights!” shouted Wang Zhong extremely loudly. The armors twinkled and turned into a curtain which blotted out the sky. The dragon made of corrosive evil strength turned into many threads of energies and moved towards him.
“Destroy!” shouted Wang Zhong icily. The armors became even more dazzling and the corrosive evil strength completely disappeared.
“Die!” Wang Zhong waved his hands, the armors moved towards Xie Yue. One of the armors turned into a gigantic axe containing a terrifying earth strength. At the same time, the armors became even more dazzling, and the space around them started to distort.
“Is that Dao strength?” Lin Feng was standing on the pillar next to Xie Yue’s pillar, his eyes twinkling. He watched Wang Zhong’s attacks carefully. Wang Zhong was from the Noble Fang Tian Clan, they were defense adepts. It was a very particular clan, a bit like the World Clan, as they controlled a special kind of strength. The World Clan controlled world strength, and the Noble Fang Tian Clan controlled armor strength. Lin Feng had never seen armor strength before or armor techniques. How powerful!
Xie Yue was in danger. He was going to be defeated quickly, even if his corrosive strength was powerful.
The battle was cruel and intense. Armor strength and corrosive evil strength kept colliding. Wang Zhong was gaining the advantage step by step, getting closer and closer to Xie Yue. Finally, his ten thousand armors exploded and Xie Yue was driven away. He was forced to give up his tenth position!
Jin Xing Zi moved down to the 12th pillar. How humiliating! He kept looking at Yin Gu Tian icily.
The Huang Jin Clan and the Yin Clan were rivals, one clan controlling gold energy, the other one silver energy, so naturally Jin Xing Zi and Yin Gu Tian were rivals. Jin Xing Zi then jumped towards Yin Gu Tian’s pillar.
Yin Gu Tian was furious. Chu Chun Qiu had already humiliated him, so he had to regain his reputation. He couldn’t lose against Jin Xing Zi!
Dazzling golden lights collided with the dazzling silver lights. The Huang Jin Clan controlled gold Dao, everything they touched could turn into gold, and their energies were destructive. Yin Gu Tian’s Dao was very similar to Jin Xing Zi’s Dao.
Their battle was even more intense than Wang Zhong and Xie Yue’s battle. Jin Xing Zi ended up at the top of the pillar fighting against Yin Gu Tian. One of Yin Gu Tian’s arms became golden and exploded. Jin Xing Zi suffered too. Half of his body had become silver and the silver strength was eating away at his body. Gold intent and silver intent were both dangerous.
“Jin Xing Zi, leave, go and learn about cultivation,” spat Yin Gu Tian. His eyes were silver and dazzling. It seemed he could turn anyone to silver if they looked at him.
“Even though Chu Chun Qiu oppressed Yin Gu Tian, Yin Gu Tian is really strong. The Yin Clan and the Huang Jin Clan are rivals. Yin Gu Tian was ranked better than Jin Xing Zi, the Great Imperial Palace was right. Yin Gu Tian is stronger than Jin Xing Zi,” was the admiring consensus of the audience.
“I would have never thought I’d be out of the top ten,” Jin Xing Zi sighed. He looked sad and disappointed. He initially wanted to try and rise up, but in the end, he ended up in the 12th position.
On the Path of cultivation, if you don’t progress quickly enough, you fall behind, and then at some point you can never catch up, thought the crowd, sighing with empathy for Jin Xing Zi. He was strong, but the others were stronger than him. Chu Chun Qiu had been in the Holy City for a short time, but he could already defeat Yin Gu Tian. Many people believed he had the potential to end up in the top five.
Lin Feng used to be a nobody, and then he had become famous because he had fought against Ji Chang on the day of his Champion ceremony. Lin Feng was the only medium-level emperor in the top ten at that moment. He was definitely talented!
Jin Xing Zi was 12th and injured now. He couldn’t possibly defeat anyone else in the top ten. Xie Yue had fallen behind in the ranking because he had been defeated, but he still had an opportunity to rise back up. But the crowd didn’t think he would manage to rise again. Lin Feng and Wang Zhong were 9th and 10th respectively, it would be very difficult to defeat them. Yin Gu Tian was also stronger than he was. Xie Yue couldn’t defeat Chu Chun Qiu and the others, that was certain.
Finally, Xie Yue decided to fight against Yin Gu Tian, who was eighth in the ranking. Yin Gu Tian’s left arm had been broken after it was turned to gold. When Xie Yue chose to fight against Yin Gu Tian, the audience sighed. He didn’t deserve to be in the top ten, challenging someone injured proved he was a coward, he wasn’t determined enough…
And the most ridiculous part was that even against the wounded Yin Gu Tian, Xie Yue lost. Now he was 11th and wouldn’t be able to reach the top ten.
The top ten was already fixed, the temporary ranking was: Ying Cheng, Ji Chang, Guili, the Buddhist warrior, Shi Yun Feng, Xue Shen Feng, Chu Chun Qiu, Yin Gu Tian, Lin Feng and Wang Zhong.
Jin Xing Zi and Xie Yue had been defeated and weren’t in the top ten.
Everybody looked at the golden ranking list. Those ten geniuses were incredible. What would the final ranking look like?
Yin Gu Tian was injured. He was probably going to be eighth, ninth or tenth. Lin Feng was really strong, but his cultivation level was lower than everybody else, he couldn’t defeat Xue Shen Feng or the stone man. He was probably going to end up in eighth, ninth or tenth position, too.
Chu Chun Qiu was incredibly strong, he was definitely going to end up in the top ten!
At least, that’s what the crowd thought. All those fighters were enigmatic and unfathomable, though. None of them had used their full strength yet. The following battles would be more serious.
At that moment, Pei Dong Lai studied the ten cultivators. Back then, he was also in the top ten. He remembered his Pathfinder Day, but now, it was a new generation. These people were also incredible.
“Now I’m going to call people from the top ten, you’ll have the opportunity to fight thrice. If you give up once, it means you agree to give up a position. If you give up three times, your position won’t change anymore,” Pei Dong Lai said slowly. He looked at Wang Zhong and said, “Wang Zhong, will you fight against Guili?”
Wang Zhong frowned, then Pei Dong Lai continued, “If you do and defeat him, you’ll replace him, if you lose, you’ll still be in the top ten. If you give up, I’ll give you two more opportunities.”
People’s eyes twinkled. The rules were cruel. If Wang Zhong accepted to fight and lost, he’d rank tenth. If he didn’t fight, he’d have the opportunity to fight against someone under Guili in the ranking list.
“If you don’t fight this time, you won’t have the opportunity to fight someone higher than Guili in the ranking list,” Pei Dong Lai said calmly.
Wang Zhong didn’t know what to think! Guili was third in the rankings!
