Chapter 1142: Intense Battle against the White Tiger Race
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Neither side was willing to show that they were weaker than the other. Their violent auras clashed together, an intense battle would break out at any moment.
"I also feel that it is a pity we are unable to kill people in the sacred academy. If not, I would surely enjoy the taste of white tiger's flesh." Qin Wentian spoke in a tone of ice. The more he looked at these white tigers, the more unpleasing to the eye he found them. The incomparably lofty golden-winged roc Jia Nantian might be arrogant, but he had a pride that belonged to his own. He disdained bullying people with lower cultivations and was completely unlike these lecherous and despicable white tigers. In the past, the white tigers acted against them and White-eye even directly injured him and insulted Nanfeng Yunxi and Nanfeng Shengge. Right now, their words were getting more and more brazen, they simply had no fear at all.
In fact, Qin Wentian even suspected that if it wasn't because of the rules here in the sacred academy, they might even truly kidnap the holy maidens and do something humiliating to them. These white tigers treated humanity as slaves, all humans were lowly-beings in their eyes. There was nothing they didn't dare to do.
"Is that so?" The expression of the white tiger king turned malevolent. "I don't really want to kill you. How wondrous would it be if I can make you become a supreme slave of my White Tiger Race? Also for these holy maidens, not only will they become slaves, they will become playthings and incubators used solely for breeding. Who knows, maybe a powerful variant-type tiger beast might be born from that. Our White Tiger Race has played with many women before, but we have not had a taste of the maidens from the Southern Phoenix Clan yet. I can't wait to taste one."
Qin Wentian's eyes turned cold. He shifted his gaze to the top of the stairway as he spoke, "Senior, is it possible to open up an arena for life-and-death battle in the sacred academy to settle conflicts that can't be mediated?"
The eyes of everyone flashed as they stared at Qin Wentian. Seems like this fellow was completely infuriated by the words of the white tiger king. Both factions of powers truly wanted an all out clash.
"My White Tiger Race has no objections to that. The sacred academy really lacks a place where we can fight a life-and-death battle in it." That white tiger king inclined his head and spoke out loud.
All experts from both factions stared up at the statue-like expert as they pleaded. All of a sudden, in the airspace above the stairway, a battle arena abruptly appeared. After that, a voice rang out, "I initially wanted to wait a few more years until the cultivation bases of you guys improved further before I activated the life-and-death battle arena. But since there's such a request now, I will grant you your desire. As long as one willingly steps into this battle arena, your fate will be decided by yourselves in there. However, you can only depend on your own strength and not borrow any aid from immortal weapons or treasures."
"Many thanks senior." Qin Wentian spoke. Everyone in the academy stared up at the arena in the air. After that, Qin Wentian turned to the experts from the White Tiger Race as he spoke, "Vile beasts, get up there."
After he spoke, him alongside with the experts from the Battle Saint Tribe and Southern Phoenix Clan all soared up into the air. But at this moment, Qin Wentian transmitted his voice to Nanfeng Yunxi and Nanfeng Shengge, "I think it's better that you girls remain here. Don't worry I can handle them."
Nanfeng Yunxi and Nanfeng Shengge's beautiful eyes flickered. Right now, their cultivation bases weren't weak. But if they wanted a war, support from high-level experts are naturally a must. Even for Qin Wentian who is now at the fourth-level, it would still be somewhat of a stretch for him to fight the entire White Tiger Race.
"Qin Wentian is right. You girls remain on the ground." A holy maiden of the elder generation added. The rest of them continued flying up, landing on the battle arena.
The white tigers all howled. They similarly left those with lower cultivation bases behind as the rest of them soared up the arena. For a period of time, the people below were in a frenzy, rushing over to spectate the battle.
On the arena in the air, each faction of power stood at a side. A unique screen of light enveloped the entire arena, sealing it completely. From the outside, although it didn't seem very large, it was actually extremely vast when they stepped within. It's a space formed from the law of surrealism and the arena seemed to have no boundaries to it.
This caused the experts of the two factions to stiffen. Such a boundlessly large arena, and that screen of light actually sealed away all paths of retreat. If one was defeated and wanted to flee away, it wouldn't be so easy.
"In this life-and-death arena, the only way to exit is to close your eyes and focus your spirit for three breaths worth of time." That ethereal voice rang out, causing the eyes of all the experts to flash. During a battle, experts on their level could make many moves in three breaths of time. If you closed your eyes during a battle, your opponent would already have the opportunity to kill you several times within a single breath of time. Unless both factions no longer wanted to battle, the loser wouldn't be able to escape the arena."
"Roast me some delicious white tiger meat!" Little Rascal bared its teeth and waved its paws around. The White Tiger Race was a king among the greater demon races. If one could manage to eat their flesh, the nutritional value within would surely be exceptional, far surpassing herb-based medical pills. In fact, if ordinary demonic beasts or humans were to consume the flesh, they might even undergo a qualitative evolution in terms of their physique.
In the immortal realms, there were some ordinary demonic beasts who worked very hard in cultivation. After they grew stronger, they started to hunt high-graded bloodline demonic beasts to eat so as to strengthen themselves, constantly using this method to make up for their innate deficiency, fighting on the boundary of life and death as they were at the risk of dying as well. Such demons who grew powerful using these methods were all extremely terrifying. It was unknown how many high-graded bloodline demons died in their hands.
"I can't bear to kill those beauties of the Southern Phoenix Clan. I want the Nanfeng Yunxi who is down below for sure. I will dote on her and enjoy her immensely." An expert from the White Tiger Race spoke to Qin Wentian. "Also as for that Nanfeng Shengge, I will make them both serve me together. How wonderful would that be? They should be more exciting compared to ordinary human females."
"The beauties here are all not bad. Capture them all to use as breeding incubators. Let's see if there will be any powerful variant-type tigers being born." The white tigers stated audaciously.
The holy maidens from the Southern Phoenix Clan stepped out as phoenix wings appeared behind their backs. They released their immortal foundations causing resplendent shadows of phoenixes to fill the air. The surrounding temperature instantly soared to a scorching degree.
"KILL!" The experts from the White Tiger Race advanced, their baleful qi sweeping across the heavens and earth, terrifying to the extreme. This was especially so for the white tiger kings, the '王' character on their foreheads shone brilliantly.
"Show no mercy." Qin Wentian commanded. The experts from the Battle Saint Tribe all expanded in form as phantom divine apes appeared, shining with resplendent light and exuding an unexcelled aura.
"BOOM, BOOM, BOOM!" A violent aura rocked the entire space as experts on both sides rushed forward, clashing together. In an instant, powerful attacks slammed into each other from both sides. As kings among greater demons, the combat prowess of the white tigers was naturally redoubtable. They all have tyrannical strength and speed alongside with an incredible defense. They could said to be perfect.
Every one of their attacks were powered by unique techniques from their race. A single roar from them could exterminate the soul of an ordinary expert. When their baleful qi invaded one's body, one's body would be easily destroyed.
White-eye stared at Qin Wentian's direction. He walked over step-by-step. Qin Wentian was also staring at him. At this moment, White-eye didn't seem to be in human form at all. He was a demonic tiger king that peered down upon all with disdain. That majestic tiger silhouette enveloped this entire space and with a thunderous roar, Qin Wentian only saw the phantom maw of a tiger opening wide, lunging over to swallow him whole.
White-eye was a demon king among the white tigers. Although his cultivation base didn't advance in that lecture, he was still at the sixth-level of immortal foundation and had a king-graded bloodline and immortal foundation. A single roar could decimate ordinary humans, it would be extremely terrifying to fight against him.
The spectators below were sweating for Qin Wentian. In comparison to that gigantic white tiger, Qin Wentian seemed so tiny and inconsequential and appeared as though he would collapse from a single strike. Would the ending be him barbecuing white tiger meat or would he be the one eaten instead?
Qin Wentian's body glowed with a runic light, transforming into a fiendgod body, standing unexcelled in the world. With a loud roar, his body of truth appeared behind him and imbued him with boundless power. The roars of demonic beasts shook the air while torrents of sword qi slashed out, wanting to tear the sky asunder… Boundless attacking techniques all combined into one erupting forwards, smashing towards the white tiger phantom. A deafening blast resounded out. The white tiger phantom devoured everything and wasn't destroyed.
Qin Wentian activated God's Hand as a layer of runic light covered his body, causing his might to tower up into the sky. Lifting his hand, he traced the outline of a roc, manifesting one from runes, causing a golden-winged great roc to really appear in the air. The golden-winged roc slashed its wings towards the white tiger phantom, and with another explosive boom, the white tiger phantom was finally shattered.
Qin Wentian stared as his opponent only to see White-eye staring back at him. At this moment, an expert from the Battle Saint Tribe then rushed over, taking over the fight against White-eye.
"ROAR!" A fearsome roar rang out. A fifth-level white tiger sped over with lightning speed, lunging over towards Qin Wentian. He transformed into his true form, a white tiger of a hundred meters tall. The baleful aura was fearsome to the extreme as he sought to bury Qin Wentian under his onslaught.
Qin Wentian gave a loud shout, his form expanded to over a hundred meters as well, to the same size as his opponent. Punching out with his fist, he chose to clash head-on with the white tiger, matching his opponent strength for strength.
"Kacha!" A crisp sound rang out as that gigantic white tiger was actually forced back. It let out low roars in frustration. As a king race among greater demons, his strength was actually inferior to a human.
The body of the white tiger suddenly glowed with a golden light. It howled and rushed forward once again, the '王' character on its forehead blazingly bright. The baleful qi it exuded was all concentrated and shot forth aiming for Qin Wentian, using a powerful killing technique unique to the white tigers.
The entire space seemed about to break apart from the power of that attack. The baleful qi swept over everything. Qin Wentian soared up into the sky and slammed out with his palms, which were both glowing with divine light. An ancient destructive halberd materialized in his palms as he slashed out with it towards the white tiger. Numerous great rocs filled the sky with their shrill screeches, yet that expert from the White Tiger Race destroyed all of them with a quick flurry of attacks. At that exact moment, after the chaos cleared, a pitch-black ancient halberd that seemed akin to the manifestation of the destruction law, pierced into his body.
"ROAR, ROAR!" A roar filled with extreme pain trembled the space as the poor white tiger convulsed intensely while struggling futilely. The commotion caused the other white tigers to turned their gazes over. They only saw a pitch-black halberd piercing through the body of one of their comrades, breaking through the incredible defense, and eventually jutting out from the back of the white tiger!
