Eternal Reverence Chapter 381
Eternal Reverence Chapter 381
The Listed Compet.i.tion was held at the center of the outer inst.i.tute and there was a gigantic contest stage.
Early in the morning, the contest stage had an unprecedented clamor. Over a thousand outer inst.i.tute cadets were already in their seats. The outer inst.i.tute mentors, elders, and the a.s.sistant Dean were also in their seats.
The annual Listed Compet.i.tion was the liveliest time for the outer inst.i.tute.
During the Listed Compet.i.tion, apart from the top three cadets receiving the earth cla.s.s low-tier cultivation techniques, the top ten cadets would also get rewarded with spirit stones. The first position would receive 2000 low-grade spirit stones, the second and third positions would receive 1000 low-grade spirit stones. From the fourth position and below, all the other top ten cadets would receive 500 low-grade spirit stones. It was considered generous rewards, especially for the first position.
At the long table beside the rostrum, the grade A mentors were seated beside one another."
Grade A cla.s.s 3's mentor, Gu Lie smiled with narrow eyes and said, "Mentor Xu, your cla.s.s 7 is so lucky. You actually have a cadet with legendary perception. In another two years, my cla.s.s 3 will not be comparable to your cla.s.s 7 anymore."
Xu Chunhua grunted," Gu Lie, stop being hypocritical."
Xu Chunhua had never been on good terms with Gu Lie. A few years ago, his cla.s.s 7 was superior to cla.s.s 3, but in recent years, he wasn't lucky and didn't have any listed cadets in his cla.s.s. However, this cla.s.s 3 had a total of three listed cadets during recent years and the no.1 listed cadet, Di Jun was also in cla.s.s 3.
Hence, whenever this Gu Lie had a chance, he would mock and ridicule Xu Chunhua.
Gu Lie grinned, "You are truly a boring person. Forget it, I shall not speak with you."
He was feeling contented with three listed cadets, giving him around 1400 mentor points. When these three listed cadets successfully promoted to inner inst.i.tute cadets, he would be on the receiving end of the 1400 mentor points.
"Li Fuchen12Li FuchenMain Protagonist do your best!"
At the audience stand, Luo Yan was sitting the grade A cla.s.s 5 group and watching Li Fuchen from below the contest stage while silently rooting for Li Fuchen.
"Hmph, I shall watch how Cousin Fenghua humiliates you on the contest stage."
Zhao Linghua was also from grade A cla.s.s 5. She was 28 years old this year, she was one year older than Luo Yan and the same age as her cousin, Zhao Fenghua.
At the eastern corner of the contest stage, Li Fuchen was standing straight and behind him were Qin Lie, w.a.n.g Yingxue, and others.
In grade A cla.s.s 7, a total of five cadets had pa.s.sed the fifth floor of the Clear Sky Tower.
Looking at Li Fuchen's back, Qin Lie and w.a.n.g Yingxue were revering him in their hearts.
For the past few days, Mentor Xu Chunhua had arranged for them to spar with Li Fuchen.
But the results were miserable as neither of them could even withstand three swords from Li Fuchen.
They similarly had their mystic cla.s.s peak-tier cultivation technique at the highest rank, and their mystic cla.s.s peak-tier martial arts were also at the highest stage. However, they were just like children when facing Li Fuchen as they couldn't put up any form of resistance.
According to Mentor Xu Chunhua's explanation, even at the same rank or stage, there would be differences. It would depend on the individual's combat skills, and it was obvious that Li Fuchen's combat skills were far superior to them.
"My only rival should be Di Jun."
Li Fuchen's eyes landed on Di Jun, while the others were ignored by him.
Li Fuchen had yet to witness the true prowess of earth cla.s.s low-tier cultivation techniques. Thus, he didn't have complete confidence that he could defeat Di Jun.
On the rostrum, the grey-robed a.s.sistant Dean stood up and announced, "The compet.i.tion's rules are simple. Those who acc.u.mulated ten losses shall be eliminated. In the end, those who lost the least will have a higher ranking. The compet.i.tion shall begin now."
There was a total of ten contest stages and ten matches were conducted at the same time.
"No.2 contest stage, Li Fuchen will go against Yang Yuanhe."
Once the referee's voice echoed, Li Fuchen flashed and landed on the no.2 contest stage.
Opposite him, Yang Yuanhe flashed and appeared too.
Yang Yuanhe was rather confident in his strength. In grade A cla.s.s 6, his strength was just inferior to the no.9 listed cadet, Lin Chao.
But he was facing Li Fuchen who had legendary perception. He didn't dare to be complacent and had put in all his strength at the beginning.
An iron rod appeared in Yang Yuanhe's hands and it was a mystic cla.s.s peak-tier weapon.
During the Listed Compet.i.tion, cadets were only allowed to use mystic cla.s.s peak-tier weapons and were forbidden from using earth cla.s.s low-tier weapons.
Huff Huff Huff Huff
Intensive technique intent and rod intent spread out. The iron rod in Yang Yuanhe's hands were like a storm. In the blink of the eye, he had blasted out with dozens of rod strikes at Li Fuchen. Each strike contained boundless power and they weren't as simple as shadows.
Earth cla.s.s low-tier rod art, 36 Rods of Mountain Explosion.
Violent gale rushed at the face while clothes were fluttering. Li Fuchen drew his Joint-Heaven Sword to deal with Yang Yuanhe's violent rod art.
His blacklight sword was just a mystic cla.s.s high-tier artifact sword. Li Fuchen had the confidence to defeat Yang Yuanhe even with his mystic cla.s.s high-tier artifact sword, but he didn't have to go through this trouble.
With the Joint-Heaven Sword out of the sheathe, Li Fuchen brandished his sword lightly and indifferently.
It was the Inferno Sword Art's first move, Extreme Heat Blaze. As Li Fuchen brandished his sword, a blazing hot sword qi flashed across.
Countless exploding sounds echoed in the air. Yang Yuanhe's 36 Rods of Mountain Explosion was just like a punctured ball as the rod forces declined sharply and lost more than 90% of its original power.
The iron rod shivered and Yang Yuanhe felt half his body getting paralyzed while he was sent flying.
"How is this possible? We are both using mystic cla.s.s peak-tier martial arts, why did I lose so quickly?" Yang Yuanhe was in disbelief.
At the grade A mentors' seats, Xu Chunhua smiled. He didn't think that Li Fuchen can obtain the no.1 listed cadet's position but with Li Fuchen's combat skills, it was highly possible for him to become a listed cadet.
"Interesting, this child's combat skills seem to be exceptionally brilliant." Gu Lie had a slightly surprised expression.
With a frenzied circulation of qi, Yang Yuanhe forcefully stopped his body from flying before he staggered after landing on the ground.
"Li Fuchen, if you can withstand my next move, I shall concede voluntarily."
Yang Yuanhe grasped his iron rod with both hands while an imposing mountain-like rod presence was emitted.
"You shall be defeated! Five Mountains Rod Art!" Yang Yuanhe rushed into the sky and cleaved down with his rod.
This rod felt as though it contained the weight from five great mountains. It was just a simple downward swing, but it covered a ma.s.sive radius. Half the contest stage was enveloped by the rod presence. There was simply no place to evade or hide.
Five Mountains Rod Art, earth cla.s.s low-tier rod art.
Yang Yuanhe might have cultivated the Five Mountains Rod Art to the sub-completion stage recently and the power might not be comparable to the 36 Rods of Mountain Explosion, but in terms of profundity, it was superior as earth cla.s.s low-tier rod art contained the quintessence of heaven and earth.
"Earth cla.s.s low-tier martial arts will only produce the field's power after reaching completion stage. This rod move would be even more profound."
Li Fuchen didn't execute his Green Sun Sword Intent. Instead, he responded with one of the Inferno Sword Art's move, Soaring Dragon Inferno.
A regular Soaring Dragon Inferno was naturally incomparable with the opposition's Five Mountains Rod Art, but Li Fuchen's Soaring Dragon Inferno felt as though it had a spirit of its own. The rotating sword had forcefully drilled opened the Five Mountains Rod Art by focusing on the flaws.
After a mouthful of blood was vomited, Yang Yuanhe's iron rod was disarmed. His body fell and crashed onto the barrier array at the edge of the contest stage before bouncing back.
Yang Yuanhe was defeated.
Xu Chunhua applauded and cheered. He noticed that he had underestimated Li Fuchen as the latter didn't even bring out his full strength when sparing with Qin Lie and w.a.n.g Yingxue. Xu Chunhua still wasn't sure of Li Fuchen had used all his strength yet.
After defeating his opponent in a clean fight, Li Fuchen flashed off the stage.
For the next few matches, w.a.n.g Heilong, Le Changfeng, and Gao Yue had gone on stage consecutively.
Among the trio, w.a.n.g Heilong's strength was obviously the strongest and his combat skills were also brilliant.
Le Changfeng and Gao Yue's combat skills were much more superior to Yang Yuanhe too but were slightly inferior to w.a.n.g Heilong.
At this moment, many of the outer inst.i.tute cadets had noticed something.
With the same cultivation level and martial arts proficiency, different combat skills would result in a huge difference in strength.
There was still a chasm in regards to the difference between a true prodigy and a normal genius. It wasn't going to be surpa.s.sed so easily.
Li Fuchen, w.a.n.g Heilong, Le Changfeng, and Gao Yue were true prodigies. Of course, with the exception of Li Fuchen, the other three had 6-star bone frames and if they weren't prodigies with 6-star bone frames, what were they?
As compared to the four new cadets, the rest looked to be inferior. Even the current listed cadets had combat skills that weren't a match for the four new cadets. Only a few of the listed cadets like Di Jun, Zhang Yunfeng, and Zhao Fenghua seemed to be stronger.
Of course, a listed cadet had obtained their position for a reason. Even if their innate potential were inferior, with a longer cultivation time and stable foundation, it was still very difficult to defeat them. In the past years, the only chance for others to enter the listed rankings were only after the listed cadets had promoted to inner inst.i.tute cadets.
After four rounds, it was Li Fuchen's turn again. This time, he was on the no.5 contest stage and his opponent was Gao Yue.
Gao Yue pursed her lips and launched a sudden attack.
Just like Li Fuchen, Gao Yue was also a swordsman and her weapon of choice was a pair of thin swords.
When coordinating with two swords, Guan Yue's sword art was extremely dense like heavy rain. There were no gaps that the swords couldn't enter and it was extremely hard to defend against.
It was a pity that her opponent was Li Fuchen who was also a swordsman.
A swordsman was most understanding of other swordsmen. Li Fuchen clearly knew the specialty of swords.
Against the dense sword art, Li Fuchen casually swung his sword twice, each sword strike would clash at the weakest part of Gao Yue's sword art. After the first sword strike, Gao Yue's sword strikes had a drastic decrease in density. After the second sword strike, Gao Yue's sword attack had instantly collapsed.
With the third sword strike, it was pointed at Gao Yue's throat.
He didn't even give a trace of opportunity to his opponent.
Gao Yue had a ghastly pale expression. Li Fuchen's sword art was like a nightmare that had crushed her completely. Even against the seniors in her clan, she had never felt this sensation before.
"I am inferior to him." Under the stage, Le Changfeng shook his head.
Li Fuchen's strength was simply flawless. When contesting against such people, unless you had absolute strength to suppress him, there was basically no chance of winning.
Next, Li Fuchen won consecutively and Le Changfeng had also been defeated by him.
No matter who his opponent was, Li Fuchen didn't feel a hint of intimidation, including the no.9 listed cadet, Lin Chao.
Such strength had made all the grade A mentors to frown involuntarily.
As expected of a person with legendary perception, not only is his perception high, his innate potential in combat skills is also terrifying. With similar cultivation strength, he will be able to achieve complete domination. In the entire outer inst.i.tute, there are just a few cadets who are rivals to him.
On the 11th round
"No.7 contest stage. Zhao Fenghua will go against Li Fuchen."
Li Fuchen who had consecutive victories had finally encountered a formidable foe.
No.5 listed cadet, Zhao Fenghua.
As one of the four cadets with transcending perception, Zhao Fenghua's strength was something that other listed cadets couldn't be compared with. He had also acc.u.mulated enough experience as he had been in the South Forest Martial Inst.i.tution for over two years. During his first year, he had entered the ranks of the listed cadets and in the second year, he became the no.5 listed cadet.
This year, there were many who speculated if he could barge into the top three.
After all, the no.3 listed cadet was Wu Zhi who only had extraordinary perception. Had he not ben in the South Forest Martial Inst.i.tution for five years, he might not even make it to the no.3 listed cadet position.
