Heavenly Dipper Sect, Chaos Essence Sect and Sword Sect expressed their stance.
The other three immortal sects watched coldly from the sidelines.
The Void Reversion monks of the three major Buddhist monasteries, Hollow, Formless and Wisdom, that came to attend the tea party lowered their heads. It was clear that they did not want to get involved in this matter.
Most of the time, the Buddhist sects were aloof from worldly affairs and rarely participated in fights between sects.
“If they can’t even fight for the title of the Great Weapon Refinement Master, Hundred Refinement Sect is truly unworthy of their reputation as one of the four unorthodox groups.”
“Actually, there’s nothing wrong with letting Hellfire Hall replace Hundred Refinement Sect. In the cultivation world, strength is everything. That’s normal.”
Many cultivators discussed softly.
Dao Being Yu Ding stood up slowly with a grim expression and shouted, “Trying to take over Hundred Refinement Sect’s position just because of a weapon refinement competition? What a joke!”
“Everyone has the rights except you guys from Hellfire Hall! How dare a traitor of Hundred Refinements Sect try to reign supreme? Ridiculous!”
Ming Han reared his head in laughter and said, “I think you’re the one who’s truly laughable! Hundred Refinement Sect is old and decayed. If you don’t think about advancing, you’ll only exist in name!”
“Master could not bear to see the decline of the Dao of weapon refinement and that’s why he decided to establish his own sect. Yet, he managed to achieve this within a few thousand years. Who would dare to claim that he’s unqualified?”
“As the saying goes, there’s no order in understanding the Dao and those who are skilled are the masters! Among the five heretical doctrines, the sect master of Corpse Refinement Cult was once a disciple of Puppet Sect. Right now, isn’t that senior still creating a world-shaking achievement that’s on par with Puppet Sect?”
“Master is extremely talented and created his own Dao of refining weapons using Hellfire. With his current achievements, he has already surpassed everyone in Hundred Refinement Sect. Who dares to say that he’s not qualified!”
Ming Han had a haughty expression and his sleeves fluttered in high spirits. His words were forceful and many of the surrounding cultivators nodded silently in agreement!
He had just won the weapon refinement competition and was young and impetuous.
When he said those words, his aura was torrential. Although Dao Being Yu Ding’s cultivation realm was high, he paled in comparison!
Even the people of Hundred Refinement Sect harbored doubts in their minds.
Could the sect have truly fallen to such an irreversible state?
Nangong Ling hugged Liu Hanyan and glared at the dazzling Ming Han not far away, his eyes filled with grief and indignation!
Dao Being Yu Ding looked towards the three unorthodox groups.
No matter what, since time immemorial, the four unorthodox groups were on the same side. If Hundred Refinement Sect was in trouble, the other three unorthodox groups would not sit idly by.
Dao Lord Lan Yue swept her gaze across the faces of Chaos Essence Sect, Heavenly Dipper Sect and Sword Sect and sighed internally without saying anything.
It was clear that Hellfire Hall came prepared for today’s matter!
With the support of the three immortal sects, it was useless even if Thousand Crane Sect stood out. They might even offend the three immortal sects – the gains would not make up for the losses.
Tang Yu of Elixir Yang Sect could not take it lying down and declared, “Fellow Daoist Ming Han, you’re wrong. Hundred Refinement Sect has a long history and a strong foundation. They are not as depraved as the way you make them out to be!”
“Furthermore, the positions of the four unorthodox groups are not to be underestimated. How can their statuses be decided through the mere outcome between two Great Weapon Refinement Masters?”
Ming Han chuckled once more and declared, “Among the grandmasters, Hundred Refinement Sect is even less of a match!”
“Since all the major sects are present today, let me ask Hundred Refinement Sect this: If my master were to come forth, which of you in Hundred Refinement Sect can beat him in weapon refinement?”
The Hundred Refinement Sect cultivators were at a loss.
Dao Being Yu Ding did not say anything either.
Prior to this, the Weapon Refinement Grandmaster of Hundred Refinement Sect had fought with the Hall Master of Hellfire Hall and suffered a crushing defeat!
The reason why the Thousand Crane Tea Party was so important was because Hundred Refinement Sect wanted to make use of this opportunity to get back at them.
To think that it would end in a crushing defeat.
Although Ming Han was a Nascent Soul, at that moment, he was already in the limelight. Pointing in the direction of Hundred Refinement Sect, he hollered,
“You guys can win in the battle for the title of a Great Master. You guys don’t dare to accept the challenge for a battle between Grandmasters. Hundred Refinement Sect, what rights do you have to remain as one of the four unorthodox groups?”
His voice boomed like thunder in the ears of the Hundred Refinement Sect cultivators.
“Hundred Refinement Sect is finished.”
“That’s right. Even if Hundred Refinement Sect refuses to admit it, I’m afraid there won’t be a place for Hundred Refinement Sect among the unorthodox groups after today.”
“To think that a super sect that has been passed down through history would fall just like that!”
Many cultivators discussed without any reservations, no longer considering the feelings of Hundred Refinement Sect.
Ye Tiancheng laughed coldly with a mocking look in his eyes. “If I was a disciple of Hundred Refinement Sect, I would have long scrammed back to the sect. How can I still have the cheek to stay here?”
Finally, a Hundred Refinement Sect cultivator could not withstand the pressure and stood up silently.
Before long, a second Hundred Refinement Sect disciple stood up and left with his head lowered.
When Dao Being Yu Ding saw that, he extended his arm and moved his lips, as though he wanted to ask them to stay but could not manage to say anything.
Ye Tiancheng’s gaze was cold as his spirit consciousness released a fluctuation. He was already prepared for the wyrms beneath his feet to head outside Thousand Crane Sect and kill everyone from Hundred Refinement Sect!
“Are you guys not leaving because you want to challenge me?”
Ming Han looked at Dao Being Yu Ding, Nangong Ling and the others with mockery in his eyes as he said with a smile, “Oh, I almost forgot. Hundred Refinement Sect has a long history and a strong foundation. There might be hidden dragons and crouching tigers, who knows?”
“Anyone who is unconvinced can challenge me. If any of you can refine a connate Perfected Lord Dharmic weapon, I’ll consider it my loss. How about that?”
The cultivators of Hellfire Hall burst into laughter.
“I’d like to try.”
Just as Dao Being Yu Ding could not take it and was about to leave with the group of cultivators with an embarrassed expression, a voice sounded from the crowd.
The cultivators were stunned and turned to look.
A green-robed man walked through the crowd with a calm expression – it was Su Zimo!
Ming Han’s gaze turned cold.
Ye Tiancheng glared at Su Zimo with undisguised killing intent.
This person had spoiled his plans time and time again – to think that he would appear now! Ye Tiancheng could not wait to strike and kill this person right now!
“Little Granduncle-Master, you…”
Nangong Ling and the other two looked at Su Zimo with bright eyes.
Could it be that Little Granduncle-Master was not only a sword cultivator with shocking combat strength, but also an outstanding weapon refinement master?
Could Little Granduncle-Master really save Hundred Refinement Sect this time round?
The three of them had never seen Su Zimo refine weapons before. Therefore, when Su Zimo stood out, endless anticipation filled their hearts.
Dao Being Yu Ding’s heart skipped a beat as well and his eyes lit up.
At that moment, he suddenly understood why the sect master and Dao Lord Scarlet Star had instructed him to obey the orders of this Little Granduncle-Master at the critical juncture before they left the sect.
So, this Little Granduncle-Master was the hidden trump card of Hundred Refinement Sect!
Nangong Ling, Yu Ding and the other two looked at Su Zimo expectantly.
Unexpectedly, Su Zimo seemed to have thought of something and turned to look at Nangong Ling and the other two. Clearing his throat, he asked, “Does anyone have a Weapon Tripod? Can I borrow it?”
Nangong Ling :”…”
Ru Xuan :”…”
Dao Being Yu Ding nearly spat out a mouthful of blood.
Everyone was stunned for a moment before bursting into laughter.
True Weapon Refinement Masters viewed Weapon Tripods as their most important Dharmic weapons and carried them around everywhere – how could they not have Weapon Tripods?
However, Su Zimo could not be blamed for this as well.
He had a Weapon Tripod that could refine spirit weapons but not one that could refine Dharmic weapons.
As for the Bronze Square Tripod, it had already been refined into a Destiny Dharmic Weapon by his scarlet-haired Yin Spirit and was surrounded by demonic qi, making it inconvenient for him to reveal it.
