The Xuanyi Mountain shook violently. The thick fog that filled the sky began to swirl at a speed visible to the naked eye, surging into the courtyard where Bai Ye lived.
At the same time, an indescribably powerful aura rose. In an instant, multicolored light circulated, and auspicious signs appeared.
All the cultivators present were dumbfounded as they stared at the phenomenon. For a moment, they were unable to breathe!
In hundreds of years, this should be the first time such a shocking phenomenon had appeared in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
In the Central Continent, Legendary Stage experts might not be considered much, but in the Southern Land, they were the top existences.
Even if it was an extremely ordinary faction, if it had a Legendary Stage expert holding down the fort, it could still be ranked on par with the Three Major Sects.
It was no exaggeration to say that a Legendary Stage expert was enough to change the entire situation in the Southern Land.
For example, the Thunder Breeze Sect’s loss of Patriarch Thunder Breeze was enough to cause them to fall out of the Four Major Sects.
Another example was the Archaic Mysteries Sect. The reason why they were ranked at the top of the Four Major Sects was because Tian Jizi was rarely matched by anyone in the Legendary Stage and was technically the strongest person in the Southern Land.
In short, if Mu Ziqi successfully broke through, then the Xuanyi Mountain Sect would directly replace the Thunder Breeze Sect and become the new four major sect!
Sighing, Bai Ye felt extremely conflicted.
He could almost imagine his “tragic” fate in the future.
He was already struggling with fighting her and now, all hopes of defeating her were gone.
Moreover, judging from the situation, it would probably be very difficult for him to surpass Mu Ziqi in his lifetime.
It was a difficult situation!
Regarding this, Qin Jue naturally had an attitude of gloating.
Qin Jue thought it was well deserved since Bai Ye had flirted with so many women without thinking about the consequences.
Just as Bai Ye was feeling depressed, the phenomenon above suddenly changed. Then, a white light shot into the sky, creating a magnificent sight.
In the middle of the white light, Mu Ziqi’s figure was faintly discernible. She was like a goddess descending to the mortal world, peerless in beauty.
Seeing this, everyone immediately held their breaths and quietly watched.
To cultivators below the Heaven Stage, being able to personally witness a Supreme Stage expert break through to the Legendary Stage was no different from a fortuitous encounter.
If they were lucky, they might be able to comprehend something from it and use it to break through.
Therefore, a few higher-ups of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect sat cross-legged and entered a cultivation state.
Even the First Elder, Wang Quan, revealed a thoughtful expression, seemingly having understood something.
After an unknown period of time, the phenomenon finally dissipated, leaving Mu Ziqi floating in the air. Her aura was deep and unfathomable.
Everyone looked at each other, not knowing if she had succeeded.
The commotion here had already attracted the attention of the other factions, including the spies planted by the Six Great Clans.
Although they did not know who Mu Ziqi was, their hearts were in their throats as they waited for her to continue.
“She succeeded.” Qin Jue said indifferently.
Bai Ye was happy for a moment before his face started to droop, looking incomparably comical.
“I’ve sat here watching for half a day. I’m so tired. I’m going back to sleep.”
Qin Jue didn’t say anything else to Bai Ye. Instead, he stretched lazily and sleepily walked towards the cliff.
Since Mu Ziqi had already successfully broken through, then he had nothing to do here.
In the sky, Mu Ziqi suddenly opened her eyes and shot out two divine lights that stretched out for hundreds of meters. She released her aura without holding back and spread out layer by layer, as if there was no end to it.
“Such powerful spirit pressure!”
Bai Ye’s expression changed slightly, becoming even uglier.
If even Bai Ye was like this, then how would the higher-ups of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect react?
Some with lower cultivation were unable to withstand the pressure and fell to their knees, nearly spurting blood.
Fortunately, Mu Ziqi retracted her aura in time. Otherwise, just the pressure alone would have caused the current Xuanyi Mountain Sect to suffer heavy casualties.
“Tomorrow, the name of our Xuanyi Mountain Sect will shock the entire Southern Land.”
The First Elder stroked his long beard and sighed with emotion.
Now, he finally realized the gap between him and Bai Ye. Apart from not being as talented or as shameless as Bai Ye, there was also the fact that he wasn’t good at flirting like Bai Ye!
How was he supposed to compete with someone with a Legendary Stage expert as his wife?
It wasn’t just the First Elder who thought this way. All the higher-ups of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect understood that the Xuanyi Mountain Sect was really going to rise up this time.
Although the current foundation of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect could not compare to the Thunder Breeze Sect or even the Six Great Clans, this was no longer a problem now that Mu Ziqi had advanced to the Legendary Stage.
As long as the news spread, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect would definitely replace the Thunder Breeze Sect and become the new fourth major sect.
It was like how Long Zhen established the Immortal Sacred Land and made it one of the Eight Great Sacred Lands by relying only on his own strength.
As for foundation, with a Legendary Stage expert holding down the fort, the sect would inevitably accumulate it.
Most importantly, Mu Ziqi was very young. Even the current eldest senior brother of the Profound Yellow Sect, Shen Zhiwen, who was publicly acknowledged as the leader of the younger generation in the Southern Land, could not advance to the Legendary Stage before he reached her age.
At night, the stars were dazzling and hung on the horizon like silk.
At this moment, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect was brightly lit and extremely lively. Everyone was currently celebrating Mu Ziqi’s successful breakthrough.
At the same time, outside the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, a cultivator was hiding in the bushes. He took out a spirit tablet and muttered to himself, “I’ve secretly discovered that there’s a Legendary Stage expert in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect!”
After doing this, the cultivator immediately ran without hesitation, afraid of being discovered.
Similar situations continued to occur elsewhere. In a few hours, almost half of the Southern Land found out that there was a Legendary Stage expert in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
In fact, Qin Jue had long noticed these hidden cultivators, but he chose not to intervene. In any case, it wasn’t a bad thing.
As the news spread, the entire Southern Land was in an uproar.
“Shocking! A remote faction actually has a Legendary Stage expert holding down the fort!”
“There was a natural phenomenon at dawn today. It’s suspected that someone broke through to the Legendary Stage!”
“Xuanyi Mountain Sect, a mysterious sect.”
Not long after, various titles appeared on the Spiritnet, occupying all the boards and becoming a hot topic.
There were two key words: Xuanyi Mountain Sect, Legendary Stage.
In conclusion, there was a Legendary Stage expert in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
“Really? How come I’ve never heard of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect?” Someone questioned.
“It’s a faction located in the area around Brilliance City. Some time ago, the sect master had just stepped into the Supreme Stage.”
“Oh, I remember now. Did that sect master break through again?”
“I’m not sure, but I don’t think they’re the same person.”
“Everyone, I was near the Xuanyi Mountain Sect and saw it with my own eyes. It was a woman!”
It had been more than a hundred years since anyone had broken through to the Legendary Stage in the Southern Land. After the Plain Field War, they had even lost a Legendary Stage expert.
Therefore, when a topic related to Legendary Stage experts appeared, it could be imagined how shocking it was.
This was especially true for the Three Major Sects and the Six Great Clans. They almost immediately sent experts to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect to confirm.
After all, if it was true, regardless of whether it was the Three Major Sects or the Six Great Clans, they would have to reconsider how they should deal with this remote faction that had suddenly risen to power.
