Xue Ziye entered the Ice Abyss Bone Piercing Formation. The cold and arrogant young saint who had entered with her had a face full of calmness. It seemed as if he wasn't afraid of the killing array at all.
Everyone had agreed that even a high and mighty Blue Spirit Saint would have to suffer a bit in the middle of a killing array.
After all, within the killing array, it was impossible to withstand so much pain!
But from the looks of it, the saint was not under any pressure at all!
"Begin!" The old man shouted and activated two killing formations.
The martial practitioner inside the Flaming Soul Splitting Formation immediately screamed out miserably.
They had all seen how painful it was for someone who entered this array. Although they were mentally prepared, after entering, they were still tormented by the sudden impact.
In just a few blinks of an eye, those four martial artists had all been defeated by the array!
Xue Ziye clenched her teeth and frowned. Her purple tight clothing gave off a faint purple mist, as if she was resisting the chilling cold!
"Xue Ziye is very strong! This is someone who can hold on for so long!" Yang Shiyue said in surprise.
There were also more than ten female martial artists participating but they all ran out at once.
After the killing array had been activated, Xue Ziye did not say a word. This was truly rare.
As for the Saint who was in the same killing array as her, she had her eyes closed, completely unaffected by the killing array!
Ji Kailin glanced at Qin Yun and said proudly, "We often practice in secret within the killing array, so this is naturally nothing to us! Now, you should know how powerful we, the saints of the Blue Spirit World are, right?"
Qin Yun looked at Yang Shiyue and saw her shake her head slightly. She said softly, "I've been in Blue Spirit Saint Palace for so long but I've never heard of them engaging in such cultivation!"
Xue Ziye was also very depressed. She also didn't expect that the endurance of this Saint would be so terrifying!
To resist the power of the killing array, she had to spend a great deal of energy. She could only grit her teeth and continue to persevere!
If this went on, then even if that Blue Spirit Saint didn't jump out. She would lose without a doubt.
To lose in the third round like this, she isn't willing to give up!
Xue Ziye's endurance far surpassed that of many other warriors.
However, she was very unlucky to have been in the same group as Saint!
If she was in the same group as other warriors, she would be able to easily advance.
Qin Yun whispered, "This bunch of bastards purposely grouped Ziye and Saints! Zi Ye is very strong and could pose a threat to saints. That's why they want to eliminate her!"
Yang Shiyue nodded, "As long as it's a martial artist with great potential, they will be in the same group as Saint Palace and be defeated in the third round. In that case, the next two rounds will be dominated by Saint Palace!"
Xue Ziye suddenly gave a loud shout and flew out. The great array immediately stopped!
"Ziye, are you alright?" Lan Fengjin hurriedly walked over and asked.
Xue Ziye shook her head and unwillingly sighed: "I'm fine. I just need to rest for a few days!"
As for the Blue Spirit Saint, her expression didn't change. She slowly walked out of the killing array. She proudly looked at Xue Ziye and gave a disdainful snort.
Even though she had been standing in the killing array for so long, she still remained calm!
And a great number of martial artists were screaming in pain!
All of the martial artists that had entered the killing array were looking at this saint with awe!
The strength of a saint was enough to shock many martial artists. They understood the difference between a saint and themselves!
Qin Yun and Yang Shiyue arrived beside Lan Huayu and Zhuo Chuan.
Yang Shiyue asked in a low voice: "Elder Lan, this doesn't seem right, what do you think?"
Lan Huayu's expression was solemn as he shook his head and said in a sincere tone, "I don't know but I will find out. Anyway, this matter is not that simple!"
"Could it be that they have precious armor that can resist the killing array?" Lan Fengjin cursed in a low voice, "That must be it. Look at their relaxed faces, they haven't been attacked by the power of the array at all!"
"Motherfickers! I'll go and expose them now!" Murong Daren said unhappily.
"Murong, don't worry. There's no evidence that they cheated right now. They are so shameless, they will definitely refuse to admit it no matter what!" Zhuo Chuan said.
Next, it was Qin Yun's turn!
Yu Heng, who was in Qin Yun's group, was a Blue Spirit Saint.
Yu Heng had Six Spirit veins and a Platinum Python Martial Spirit. It is said that his Flying Python Martial Spirit could evolve into a dragon in the future, so it's potential was enormous.
Other than Qin Yun and Yu Heng, the other two participants from this group had given up. They did not want to be tortured.
Yu Heng gave Qin Yun a cold glance and said, "I advise you to give up! You've seen it before. Our Blue Spirit Saint's endurance is much higher than yours in the killing array."
"Not necessarily!" Qin Yun said indifferently. He suspected that saint cheated but he didn't have enough evidence.
Qin Yun and Yu Heng entered the Ice Abyss Bone Piercing Formation.
Ji Kailin and a few of the Blue Spirit Saints seemed to be certain that Qin Yun would lose. Their faces were full of smiles.
The two killing arrays began at the same time. In just an instant, miserable cries erupted!
On the other side of the Flaming Soul Splitting Formation, three people suddenly jumped out. The remaining person lasted for a bit longer and successfully entered the next round!
As for Qin Yun and Yu Heng, they were frighteningly calm!
Qin Yun frowned slightly as he circulated the nether sun inner force to circulate it throughout his body. It permeated his muscles and blood and dissolved the killing array energy that permeated his body.
The mysterious power of Nether Sun was able to absorb various kinds of energy and then break them down into pure energy.
Just now, when Xue Ziye went to resist the power of the killing array, she was in great pain.
As for Qin Yun, he stood straight in the killing array as though nothing had happened.
Ji Kailin and the others were also very surprised!
They never expected Qin Yun to be like them, able to easily withstand the power of the killing array!
"As expected of Qin Yun. Only he can suppress Blue Spirit Saints!"
"Blue Spirit Saints isn't going to be proud this time, haha!"
"I hope that Qin Yun can persevere and make this Blue Spirit Saint scream!"
Amidst the crowd, the number of people supporting Qin Yun gradually increased.
It was mainly because they didn't like saints. Those saints had mocked and ridiculed many participants in the tournament. They didn't place anyone in their eyes!
Yu Heng looked at Qin Yun with a hint of anger in his eyes. That was because there were many people supporting Qin Yun.
"It seems like the two of them are on par with each other! If this goes on, I don't know how long it will take. In order to finish it as soon as possible, I will increase the power of the Ice Abyss Bone Piercing Formation!"
As soon as the hosting elder finished speaking, he immediately controlled the flag array and released an even more powerful force.
A wave of cold energy gushed out of the Ice Abyss Bone Piercing Formation, causing everyone to feel a chill run down their spines!
"Grandfather, what should we do?" Lan Fengjin shouted anxiously.
Zhuo Chuan and Lan Huayu looked at Qin Yun and Yu Heng with furrowed brows. They did not say a word as though they were pondering over the secrets on Yu Heng's body.
The power of the Ice Abyss Bone Piercing Formation suddenly increased as Qin Yun's expression changed. He no longer appeared as calm as before.
As for Yu Heng, he remained relaxed. Although the power of the killing formation had increased, it did not give him any pressure.
"The killing array is becoming stronger and stronger. The power of my Nether sun is limited. If this continues, the one who will lose the fight will definitely be me!" Qin Yun looked at Yu Heng and gritted his teeth.
That Yu Heng had actually closed his eyes, completely unaffected!
This was too strange!
Many of the older generation of Blue Spirit Star Palace could see that there was something fishy going on but they didn't say anything.
They felt that it was normal for the Blue Spirit Palace to do so. After all, they were doing so to ensure that the final winner would be a disciple of their Blue Spirit Saint Palace.
Suddenly, the Ice Abyss Piercing Formation released another wave of cold air. The killing formation's power had actually increased again!
Qin Yun was caught off guard as the sudden increase in strength from the killing array destroyed his defense!
This time, the strengthening power of the killing array didn't have any warning beforehand!
Qin Yun's entire body was stung by the strange bone-piercing coldness as he let out a low roar.
He let out a furious roar and quickly circulated all of his inner force to block the cold that was continuously attacking his body. At the same time, he also released the Purple Gold Thunder Flame to cover his body.
As soon as the Purple Gold Thunder Flame appeared, the chilling cold was blocked out, and he felt much more relaxed.
However, if this continues, once all of his internal energy is used up, he won't be able to hold on!
Qin Yun had no other choice but to take it step by step.
The power of the killing array did not continue to increase, as if it had already reached it's limit.
Now, as long as he used up all the energy in Qin Yun's body, Yu Heng would be the victor!
Moments later, the purple lightning that enveloped Qin Yun's body suddenly dispersed!
Qin Yun had exhausted all of his internal energy!
Without strong internal force to support him, he was unable to resist the power of the formation and his body was instantly pressed down by the formation!
Qin Yun fell flat to the ground!
He hadn't thought that this Ice Abyss Bone Piercing Formation would be so powerful that it would produce a strong pressure that pressed down heavily.
Now, even if he wanted to escape the formation, it would be extremely difficult.
The power of the Ice Abyss Bone Piercing Formation had reached it's limit!
As for Yu Heng, he was still standing there unperturbed. As long as he wasn't blind, one could tell that there was something fishy going on.
Everyone knew Qin Yun's strength very well.
The astonishing perseverance of the previous runners had shocked many people, but it had far outstripped those of the Saints.
And now, Qin Yun was lying down, while the saint was completely fine!
"Yu Heng is cheating!" Murong Daren suddenly shouted.
Many people had the same thought but they were afraid of offending others, so they didn't say it out loud.
Ji Kailin immediately retorted loudly, "Don't slander us. It's because Qin Yun is weak! You must know that we have been training in this killing array for many years and have long refined bodies that can resist the power of this array. You cannot imagine the pain and hardship that we have to endure before this!"
He sneered a few times before continuing, "You should persuade Qin Yun to give up. If this goes on, you can only collect his corpse!"
The power of the killing formation was extremely terrifying. A ninth level Martial Body that was not strong enough could only last for about four hours!
If he didn't come out in time, he would definitely be killed.
"Miss Yang, please advise him!" Lan Huayu sighed softly and said in a low voice, "I promise that I will find out everything about this matter!"
Zhuo Chuan hurriedly advised, "Qin Yun is very stubborn. He will only listen to you!"
"Shiyue, quickly tell Qin Yun to crawl out!" Lan Fengjin urged, "If this continues, it will harm Qin Yun's very core. Right now, he is at the ninth level Martial Body realm. If he makes any mistakes, it will affect his progress into the Martial Dao Realm."
Qin Yun's friends were extremely anxious!
(TL NOTE : really?? two Xuan Rank inscriptionists are wonder what item they are wearing to cheat?? one of them even the master of saint palace inscription hall who actually crafted such items before and he says he will "investigate". and qin yun has nine yang divine spirit which can quickly absorb energy, a formation that released outrageous amount of energy, how can he not replenish his energy with nine yang divine spirit? i guess reason and logic is a myth when writing chinese wuxia/xianxia novels."
