Chapter 826 - Five Hundredth Rank
...At the dojo in the mysterious woods...
Before the white-haired old man and Qin Nan was a watery screen that was showing everything that was happening on the Touring Dojo. In other words, Qin Nan was able to see the ranks of Xuan Yue, Bai Xingyang, Guan Hu, Mu Mu, and the mysterious black-robed cultivator too.
"This mysterious black-robed cultivator seems familiar…"
Qin Nan pondered for a moment, before shaking his head and asked, "Senior, what are the benefits of achieving a higher rank on the Monarch Ranking?"
"A higher rank means a higher chance for you to achieve the Martial Monarch Realm. The difference is more obvious when the Monarch Horoscope Contest takes place. Besides, the ranks are reassessed every month." The white-haired old man smilingly said, "Of course, the ranking doesn't really matter much to you."
It was clear what he was trying to imply.
It was only a matter of time for you, Qin Nan, to surpass the Monarch Ranking.
Qin Nan hesitated for a while, before his lips curled upward.
He already had an idea!
...Meanwhile, at the Touring Dojo...
The entire place was immersed in noise.
"It's real! Qin Nan's ranking has not been revealed yet!"
"Normally, the higher ranks would take a longer time to be revealed. Does that mean Qin Nan will be ranked in the top one thousand?"
"We've totally underestimated his talents!"
The geniuses discussed with one another as they constantly switched their gazes between Qin Nan and Cui Lixu's figures.
Xuan Yue wore a troubled look.
Are you for real? Qin Nan who only had a first-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit would achieve a better result than his?
All of a sudden!
A great force was unleashed from Cui Lixu's figure as golden light dots began to gather around him, which turned into a golden pillar bursting into the sky.
The golden glows emitted by Mu Mu or the mysterious black-robed cultivator were nothing compared to his!
"It's Cui Lixu!"
"What's his rank?"
The atmosphere of the Touring Dojo instantly livened up.
The crowd all gathered their focus onto Cui Lixu's figure.
After all, Cui Lixu possessed a fifth-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit!
The golden pillar suddenly exploded into light dots that scattered in the sky, which danced around Cui Lixu and formed a three-headed dragon symbol before him. His symbol felt more imperious when compared to the ones the others were given.
At its center were three fiery numbers.
"It's five hundred! He's ranked five hundredth!"
"Oh my Heavens, Cui Lixu is ranked five hundredth!"
"Gasp, this is his first time being assessed, and he's already placed at the five hundredth rank! Does that mean he would come in the top thirty in the future when his strength continues to grow?"
"As expected of a fifth-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit!"
The crowd was dumbfounded.
Xuan Yue, Bai Xingyang, Guan Hu, Yu Bing, and the rest of the geniuses held their breaths. Was this the difference between their fourth-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirits and his fifth-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit?
It went without saying that Cui Lixu's result had completely exceeded their expectations.
"Great, awesome!" Cui Lixu opened his eyes and blurted out. He could feel himself ascending to a whole new height, "I've not let myself down in the trial. I was destined to become the top genius of the Middle Continent!"
He had achieved the five hundredth rank!
With this result, the Heaven-Saber Sect would use all their resources to train him!
Furthermore, he would also be rewarded greatly by the Monarch Ranking!
Cui Lixu rose from the ground and scanned his surroundings. As he checked out the ranks that the others had achieved, the grin on his face thickened.
The next rank after him was only one thousandth!
His rank of five hundredth was definitely the best among the participants for this year's trial!
Cui Lixu's eyes suddenly widened as if a bucket of cold water was poured onto his heart.
Could anyone explain what was going on here?
Why was Qin Nan's rank not revealed yet even though he only had a first-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit?
At that instant, Qin Nan's figure began to emit a faint golden glow.
However, to the crowd, it felt like a stone was being tossed into a calm lake.
"Qin Nan is finishing the trial too!"
"Damn, a first-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit spent a longer time in the trial than Cui Lixu! Don't tell me his ranking is higher than Cui Lixu's!"
The crowd immediately turned around with astonishment.
Just a moment ago, the results of two first-grade Tian ranked geniuses had completely surpassed their imagination.
"No way! Impossible! There's no way Qin Nan's ranking would be higher than mine…" Cui Lixu's heart sank as he subconsciously clenched his fists with a dark expression. It would be a joke if the chance of his fifth-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit achieving the Martial Monarch Realm was lower than a first-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit.
Under the crowd's attention, a brilliant golden glow was fired into the sky from Qin Nan's figure, which covered the whole place.
The figures of the crowd shuddered as they subconsciously clenched their fists tightly.
Such a terrifying glow!
Could it be...
Following this, the golden glow vanished as ten dragon-shaped symbols appeared on Qin Nan's chest and merged together. At the center was a violet number.
The number was so simple that it served as a tremendous explosion in the hearts of the crowd.
The number was one!
Qin Nan was ranked first!
Cui Lixu was stunned. The crowd was stunned.
The scene before them had completely toppled their understanding.
A first-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit!
Whose cultivation was at most the Law-Defying Martial Sacred Realm!
Was ranked first?
Are you kidding me!
The whole Touring Dojo fell into an endless dead silence. Even the Monarch Envoy floating in the air was left speechless, implying that the scene was too ridiculous for him either.
However, at this moment...
The ten dragon-shaped symbols on Qin Nan's chest experienced a shocking change. The symbols began to contract rapidly, as if they were combining into one.
Ten dragon-shaped symbols rapidly turned into nine, eight, seven...and finally into one in the end.
The violet number 'one' shuddered vigorously too.
The crowd was astounded.
What was going on? What was happening?
However, when they took another look at the change, their figures began to tremble. Even Cui Lixu's mind had gone blank!
What on Earth!
Are you serious!
