All the prodigies that were listed on the Stars Ranking were all competently strong . Most of those from the previous Stars Ranking Tournament should be able to make it into the top 70 or 80 ranks .
Boom, Boom, Boom!
On the circular stage, there were qi forces being blasted and weapons clashing .
When the battle had been decided, the loser’s Heaven Dipper Stone Pillar would crack and send out a stream of Heaven Dipper Battle Qi into the winner’s Heaven Dipper Stone Pillar .
‘Every Heaven Dipper Stone Pillar has a limited amount of Heaven Dipper Battle Qi . Every match lost would result in a loss of one portion . No wonder only the top 36 can obtain support from the Heaven Dipper Battle Qi . ’ Seeing this scene, Li Fuchen realized that fact in his heart .
For the second match, it was Golden Whip Star, Jin Xudong .
His opponent wasn’t weak and was actually very formidable, as he was Lu Xiangdong who was ranked 42nd in the previous Stars Ranking .
Jin Xudong’s weapon was a 10 feet long golden whip that had a total of 108 sections, just like a golden spine . A casual whip caused a burst of golden light to flash on the stage, while a horrific whip intent burst forth . It immediately shot towards Lu Xiangdong, causing his chest to collapse and suffer severe injuries .
“Such power!” Everyone was astonished .
“What reckless behavior to not concede even after encountering Jin Xudong . ”
“I reckon that he was trying to test Jin Xudong’s ability!
Everyone was engaged in a heated discussion .
Turning around in a cool manner, Jin Xudong went back to his stone pillar .
As for Lu Xiangdong who suffered severe injuries, a ray of light enveloped him, helping him to quickly recover .
Lu Xiangdong had on a terrified expression . Three years had passed since the previous tournament and he had thought he improved quite a bit . Even though he knew that he wasn’t a match for Jin Xudong, he still wanted to give it a try . He never would have expected that he would be defeated in such a miserable manner and in also such a direct and blunt manner .
Taking a deep breath, Lu Xiangdong jumped off from the stage and returned to his stone pillar . In the next moment, the stone pillar below him had a crack which split off a portion of Heaven Dipper Battle Qi, fusing into the pillar underneath Jin Xudong .
‘Is that the half step Heaven Realm?’ Li Fuchen frowned .
Jin Xudong didn’t activate any secret technique and the whip art he used was a mystic class mid-tier whip art . But that Lu Xiangdong who was rank 42nd couldn’t even withstand a single whip . Had it not been for the recovery ability of the Heaven Dipper Great Array, he would have probably ended up dead .
Li Xiangru was up for the fourth match and his opponent was a rising talent . This rising newcomer was extremely strong and Li Xiangru managed to defeat him after over a hundred moves .
The fifth match was Yan Qingwu’s turn and her opponent was apparently Yun Yue .
“Swallow Flight Dance . ”
After activating the 3-star secret technique, Swallow Flight Dance, Yan Qingwu’s figure split into multiple figures which dazzled Yun Yue, as he couldn’t capture her true body .
Clang, Clang, Clang, Clang, Clang…
Rays of saber lights cleaved at Yun Yue’s body which burst out with countless sparks .
“You will not be able to damage me . ”
Yun Yue roared and swept his giant ax in a full circle, destroying all the clones that Yan Qingwu produced .
“That might not be the case . ”
Yan Qingwu frowned and activated her 4-star secret technique, Flying Swallow Cleave . The curved saber in her hand had a drastic increase in strength that had a shadow of a swallow on it .
Fresh blood burst forth as Yun Yue got wounded by the saber .
Pfff, Pfff, Pfff, Pfff…
Immediately after, Yun Yue was caught in a predicament as he was covered in saber scars .
“I admit defeat . ” Letting out a bitter smile, Yun Yue admitted his defeat .
His opponent’s saber speed was extremely fast, so fast that it gave the saber arts a high lethality . He couldn’t understand how such a young person could achieve such a level of prowess . It was as the saying went, ‘One would only be angered to death when they compared themselves against others . ’
In the seventh match, it was Young Master Dragon Sword, Chiyu Ye against Wang Xin .
In the previous Stars Ranking Tournament, Chiyu Ye was rank 28th, while Wang Xin was rank 44th . According to logic, their difference shouldn’t be too drastic .
That was what Wang Xin thought as well .
“Are you not going to concede?” Chiyu Ye looked at Wang Xin .
Wang Xin replied confidently, “Why do I have to concede?”
Even if he wasn’t a match for Chiyu Ye, he didn’t have to concede . This Chiyu Ye wasn’t one of the Three King Stars whom he might probably concede to .
“I hope you don’t regret it . ” Chiyu Ye spoke indifferently .
“Take a palm strike from me first . ”
Wang Xing soared into the air and his two large palms sent out dozens of palm strikes at Chiyu Ye . Every palm was closely knitted together, which finally formed a giant palm that slammed down at Chiyu Ye .
“Annoying housefly . Break!”
Chiyu Ye brandished his sword, which was a golden sharp sword . He thrust it midair, which sent out a blinding golden sword light that was like a dragon’s claw . It ripped through the giant palm and penetrated Wang Xin’s body .
A blood mist burst in midair, while Wang Xin let out a miserable scream as he fell onto the circular stage .
He was inflicted with devastating injuries, as there were five penetrated blood holes all the size of a bowl .
Chiyu Ye didn’t even glance at Wang Xin, as he tipped onto the surface of the ground and returned to his stone pillar .
The recovered Wang Xin had on an expression as though he just saw a ghost, as his eyes were wide opened .
He felt that Chiyu Ye’s ability wasn’t any inferior to the Golden Whip King Star, Jin Xudong’s .
One reason was that Wang Xin didn’t think he was weaker than Lu Xiangdong and felt that he was slightly stronger .
“Young Master Dragon Sword, Chiyu Ye is indeed an exceptional sword dao prodigy from the Sky Dragon Sword Sect . He has grown to such a level in just three years . Could he intend to strive for the top ranks against the Three King Stars?”
“Most likely . Six Young Masters and Four Fairies… which of them aren’t targeting the Three King Stars? I wonder if the other Young Masters and Fairies have such a level of ability though?”
Witnessing Chiyu Ye’s ability, everyone had higher expectations from the other elite prodigies .
A period of three years contained too many variables . The previous Stars Ranking was currently invalid and couldn’t even be used as a reference .
Of course, with exception from the Three King Stars .
In the tenth match, it was Wind Snow Fairy, Xu Lin’s turn .
As she stood on the circular stage .
There wasn’t even a need for Wind Snow Fairy to make a move . With a burst of her qi, the boundlessly chilling qi presence enveloped the opponent .
“I concede . ”
Her opponent was shivering from the cold and it wasn’t merely the cold on the surface of the body, it was even colder at the spirit will level .
In the 15th match, Young Master Celestial Star, Murong Di’s opponent felt that he was incompetent and immediately conceded .
In the 17th match, Young Master Doulin, Xiahou Chuan’s opponent had conceded as well .
So did Young Master Flying Blade, Luo Feiyun’s opponent, in the 20th match .
In the 24th match…
Li Fuchen’s stone pillar sank to around half its height .
‘Is it my turn?’
Li Fuchen flashed and landed on the stage .
Li Fuchen opened his eyes and looked opposite of him .
His opponent had a stalwart figure and was surging with qi presence .

“He is one of the Doulin Ten Greats, Xiahou Hai . ”
“Xiahou Hai’s innate potential might not be as good as Xiahou Chuan’s and Xiahou Shi’s, but he has the advantage of age . He was rank 39th on the previous Stars Ranking Tournament . ”
“There is going to be a good show now . ”
Everyone looked at the stage with curiosity . They wanted to see what level of ability Li Fuchen possessed .
“Kid, are you not going to concede?” Xiahou Hai grinned and scoffed .
He was ranked 39th in the previous tournament and he was confident that he could get into the top 30 ranks this time . He didn’t even put a mere Li Fuchen in his sights, even if Li Fuchen’s name was extremely resounding during this past year .
“With the likes of you?” Li Fuchen replied .
“With the likes of me! Splitting Mountain Claw!”
Xiahou Hai was equipped with steel claws which crisscrossed as he clawed . The sky-covering claw shadows was like a giant net which entrapped Li Fuchen .
Li Fuchen’s black light sword radiated with a scarlet light, as it extended into a giant scarlet red sword .
The sword swept across and neutralized the giant net, while the residual force crushed towards Xiahou Hai .

“Minor Battle Spirit Art, activate!”
Xiahou Hai burst out with a yell as his body radiated with a resplendent yellow light, while he smashed his fist onto the giant sword .
