Chapter 926 - The Beast Tribes
Following this, the news regarding the inner disciple trial swept the entire Dragon Emperor Clan like a storm.
In the midst of the surprise, the inner disciples immediately prepared themselves to strive for excellence in the trial.
As for Qin Nan, he was busy refining the Beast-Hitting Stick.
Unlike other Mystical Weapons, it did not have a Weapon Spirit, thus he would need to use his blood and will to slowly refine it.
During the process, the Six-Spirited Dragon Vein and Xuan Yue visited Qin Nan to discuss about the inner disciple trial. The Six-Spirited Dragon Vein advised Qin Nan to be careful, while Xuan Yue was interrupted by Qin Nan when he was about to say something.
The threat from Xuan Li had nothing to do with Xuan Yue, thus Qin Nan did not want him to worry too much.
...Time gradually passed. Two days later...
Following a soft buzz, Qin Nan's eyes flickered with joy. He had finally refined the Beast-Hitting Stick, allowing him to freely control it at his will.
Thump thump thump….
At that instant, the chimes of an ancient bell could be heard from a distance away.
"Every inner disciple taking part in the trial should head to the dojo at once. Make sure you're there within the period it takes an incense to burn."
An imperious voice exploded in the sky.
"Phew, it's time to witness the talents of the inner disciples here at the Dragon Emperor Clan!"
Qin Nan's eyes glistened.
There were only two ways to become an inner disciple of the Dragon Emperor Clan. Either the person had contributed greatly to the faction or possessed a bloodline equivalent to a third-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit, along with a certain cultivation.
Therefore, some among the inner disciples were ranked highly on the Monarch Ranking due to their outstanding strength.
A while later, at the dojo…
A few dozen inner disciples who had arrived were chatting among themselves, resulting in a lively scene.
Most of the disciples that had arrived earlier were ranked lower among the beast tribes. Some of them were those who had altered their destiny and improved their bloodline through fortunate encounters, thus they did not have their own tribe.
Qin Nan's figure landed at the back of the dojo.
Following this, several gazes turned toward him with hints of curiosity, astonishment, doubts, envy, etc.
Qin Nan had achieved two outstanding accomplishments at the Dragon Emperor Clan, thus everyone was aware of his existence. His arrival immediately attracted their attention.
"Who would have thought that Qin Nan would be here too."
"He's the Peak Leader of the Human Peak, but he's also an inner disciple, so there's nothing surprising about that. That being said, the trial will be testing the strength of the participants!"
"He only has a first-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit, and his cultivation is at most the second or third-layer Martial Progenitor Realm. There's no way he would still be so smug when the trial takes place!"
The disciples whispered to one another.
Qin Nan was already used to such a situation. He unleashed his left eye and scanned his surroundings. He exclaimed as he inspected the inner disciples.
As expected of the Dragon Emperor Clan, the cultivation of the inner disciples was quite impressive.
Besides, the stronger disciples had yet to appear.
"It seems like you didn't really give the people of the Dragon Emperor Clan a good impression." A cold voice appeared beside Qin Nan. He turned around and realized the person was Mu Mu.
It had been a while since he had last seen her. Her black hair had reached her waist while her eyes were glittering. Her figure was encapsulated within an icy aura, emitting an indescribable hint of mercilessness, which easily grabbed the attention of the people around her.
Her cultivation had reached the fourth-layer Martial Progenitor Realm.
"Mm? Her Serene Infernal Body seems to be restricted by something. Furthermore, the Martial Art she is practicing is able to transform the evil force into her own force. No wonder her cultivation has improved so rapidly. It seems like the Nine-Tailed Monarch Beast has done a pretty good job…"
Qin Nan did not respond. He analyzed Mu Mu's situation with a glimpse.
"I'd kill you, so would many others." Mu Mu's eyes were fixated, as if she were about to draw her sword out.
Qin Nan was speechless hearing this.
The Nine-Tailed Monarch Beast should be aware of the poison in Mu Mu's body now, Why hadn't she cured it for her?
She was still assuming that he was her father's murderer!
Meanwhile, an uproar took place among the crowd of inner disciples. Several figures wearing white robes descended from above, each with a ferocious aura.
They were the twenty-seventh ranked tribe of the Dragon Emperor Clan, the Blood Jade Beasts!
"Not bad, the strongest among them has achieved the seventh-layer Martial Progenitor Realm."
Qin Nan nodded.
Following this, different groups of cultivators arrived from all directions, some emitting fiery auras, while others were cold. Some also possessed various powerful forces, and all of them were from the top thirty tribes of the Dragon Emperor Clan!
For example, the fifteen-ranked Crimson Thunderous Serpents!
The eighth-ranked Golden-Winged Giant Birds!
The twenty-third ranked Purple Flame Tigers!
The fifth-ranked Water Stone Apes, etc.
Even Qin Nan's eyes were glittering in excitement.
He had only heard the names of the beasts from rumors, and it was his first time seeing them today.
Meanwhile, the dojo was filled with almost two hundred disciples. Beastly auras swept the surroundings, as those who held grudges against each other glared at each other furiously.
Although Mu Mu's cultivation had reached the fourth-layer Martial Progenitor Realm, she was still human after all, thus she took a few steps backward due to the pressure.
Qin Nan was perfectly unaffected. Due to his reputation, most of the tribes glanced in his direction and inspected him.
"So you're Qin Nan?"
A voice filled with a hint of pride could be heard.
Qin Nan turned his head around.
He could see nine young cultivators approaching him, each emitting a ferocious aura, especially the leading young man, whose forehead had the faint mark of a crescent. It appeared that his cultivation was at the eighth-layer Martial Progenitor Realm!
These cultivators were from the Skyhowl Wolves tribe!
Many among the crowd grinned seeing this, as they were aware of the conflict between the Skyhowl Wolves and Qin Nan.
"That's me." Qin Nan wore a calm smile.
"I'm Xuan Ya, the chief has specifically ordered us to show you our strength during the inner disciple trial." Xuan Ya smirked, revealing his crimson fangs as he snapped, "If you dare to resist…be careful that you don't end up losing your life."
The Skyhowl Wolves behind him chuckled with disdain.
So what if you're a Peak Leader?
You only had a first-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit.
Before Qin Nan could speak, Xuan Ya acted as if it was embarrassing if he were to spent his time talking to Qin Nan any further. He flung his sleeves and left with his crew.
"Xuan Ya, huh…"
Qin Nan squinted.
Suddenly, three shocking auras surged toward the dojo from the sky.
The geniuses from different tribes and the disciples were startled.
The auras were equivalent to fourth-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirits!
Qin Nan raised his head.
