Chapter 215: Promotion to the Four Major Sects
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
After repeated confirmation by the Three Major Sects and the Six Great Clans, they finally concluded that there was indeed a Legendary Stage expert in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect who had just broken through.
Ever since the Xuanyi Mountain Sect had become the most powerful faction in the vicinity of Brilliance City, there had been more and more cultivators in that area. The area had gotten extremely prosperous, so there were quite a few cultivators who had seen the phenomenon.
Even if the Six Great Clans did not plant any spies, this matter would quickly be exposed on the Spiritnet.
If someone had said half a year ago that the Xuanyi Mountain Sect could rival the Three Major Sects, they would have been treated as idiots.
After all, half a year ago, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect was still an unknown small faction with only two Heaven Stage experts.
Not to mention the Four Major Sects, even the Seven Great Clans could have casually destroyed the Xuanyi Mountain Sect then.
However, now, not only did the Xuanyi Mountain Sect have a Supreme Stage expert, but they also had a Legendary Stage expert.
When they received this news, the patriarchs of the Six Great Clans simply couldn’t believe their ears.
They had occupied the Southern Land for more than a thousand years and were in control of a large amount of cultivation resources. Their statuses were high, but they were never able to produce any Legendary Stage experts. Thus, it could be seen how difficult it was to step into the Legendary Stage. Otherwise, the Thunder Breeze Sect would not have fallen out of the ranks of the Four Major Sects.
In the end, a small remote faction actually produced a Legendary Stage expert.
How was someone like that supposed to teach Wu Ying?
As they did not know Mu Ziqi’s background, the first thing these patriarchs thought of was that the Xuanyi Mountain Sect must have found some ancient ruins or a huge opportunity.
This was the only way to explain why there were so many high-level cultivators in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
Therefore, they simultaneously had an idea: to snatch this opportunity away from the Xuanyi Mountain Sect!
If the opportunity had really helped a small remote faction could rise up in such a short period of time and even produce a Legendary Stage expert, wouldn’t they become even more powerful after having gained this opportunity?
Don’t forget that this was a world of cultivation. Killing and plundering were almost commonplace here.
Although the Six Great Clans were willing to stand up to the Purple Demon Race in the Plain Field War, it did not mean that they were good people.
This was obvious from the way they had divided Brilliance City.
However, they quickly gave up on this idea.
The Xuanyi Mountain Sect now had a Legendary Stage expert holding down the fort. Even if the Six Great Clans were to band together, they still wouldn’t be a match for him. So how were they supposed to snatch the opportunity?
They would probably be beaten to death.
In the entire Southern Land, only the Three Major Sects had the strength to do so. However, with the strength and status of the Three Major Sects, they absolutely would not do so. At least not on the surface.
Moreover, a few mysterious experts had specially warned them not to provoke the Xuanyi Mountain Sect some time ago. They did not want to court death.
In addition, it was no longer a question of whether they would attack Xuanyi Mountain Sect or not. It was a question of whether the Xuanyi Mountain Sect would attack them.
If the Xuanyi Mountain Sect wanted to take control of Brilliance City at this time, then the Six Great Clans would have no choice but to retreat.
At the Archaic Mysteries Sect.
“Is the news accurate?” Ye Qing said solemnly with his hands behind his back.
“Yes, absolutely.” Below, a cultivator bowed and said.
“Alright, I understand.”
Ye Qing nodded and the cultivator immediately retreated.
“A new Legendary Stage expert…”
Ye Qing narrowed his eyes that flickered with a strange light.
As the current sect master of the Archaic Mysteries Sect, besides his high cultivation, Ye Qing also had two extremely talented sons. They were the twins who had appeared in the Wuji Mystic Realm.
However, as Shen Zhiwen and Su Yan stepped into the Supreme Stage one after another, the prestige of the two famous twins fell drastically, and they no longer dominated the younger generation of the Southern Land like before.
“It’s a pity that the patriarch is in seclusion. Otherwise, I could have asked him.”
Ye Qing sighed, not knowing how to deal with this matter.
It wasn’t just Ye Qing. The sect masters of the Profound Yellow Sect and the Sword Sect were also in a dilemma.
Although the Xuanyi Mountain Sect already possessed the strength to become one of the Four Major Sects, they still needed to be acknowledged by the other Three Major Sects before they could officially become the fourth major sect.
They had also gone through the same process for the Wei Clan and the Thunder Breeze Sect.
However… were they really going to let a small and remote faction without any foundation become the new fourth major sect?
Ye Qing suddenly recalled the mysterious expert who had warned him not to provoke the Xuanyi Mountain Sect some time ago. The feeling that the other party gave him was too terrifying. He had never told anyone about this.
Could it be that some faction from another place was supporting the Xuanyi Mountain Sect?
In the discussion hall of the Profound Yellow Sect.
Many higher-ups were discussing the Xuanyi Mountain Sect when a figure suddenly barged in.
“Mm? Little Wenzi, why did you come in?”
The sect master of the Profound Yellow Sect, Xu Xiao, was slightly surprised.
Shen Zhiwen cupped his fists and bowed before saying solemnly, “I hope you can agree and acknowledge the Xuanyi Mountain Sect as the new fourth major sect.”
Hearing this, the sect master was stunned and subconsciously asked, “Why?”
“Just trust me, Master!”
Shen Zhiwen looked serious.
He had promised Qin Jue before, so he naturally wouldn’t reveal anything about Qin Jue, but there was no problem with beating around the bush.
This was the first time Xu Xiao had seen Shen Zhiwen reveal such a serious expression, so he pondered for a moment and nodded. “Alright, I believe you.”
The other elders were shocked and were about to speak when Xu Xiao waved his hand and interrupted, “Stop talking. I’ve already made up my mind. We’ll do as Little Wenzi says.”
“What? You all want to disobey my orders?”
Xu Xiao frowned.
“I wouldn’t dare.”
The elders hurriedly shook their heads.
“Then get lost.”
“Yes, yes, yes!”
“Thank you, Master.”
Watching the elders leave, Shen Zhiwen heaved a sigh of relief.
Others might not know, but he knew what kind of existence was hidden in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. Although Shen Zhiwen was also very puzzled about who had advanced to the Legendary Stage, he did not care. All he needed to do was support them.
“Hahaha, you’re my only disciple. Who would I believe if not you?”
Xu Xiao laughed.
In fact, there was something Xu Xiao did not say. He had also been warned by a mysterious expert before. Moreover, Xu Xiao was certain that the mysterious expert was definitely stronger than him!
Therefore, Xu Xiao had also speculated that the Xuanyi Mountain Sect was probably supported by a major faction.
In addition, Shen Zhiwen seemed to also know some inside information, so why would Xu Xiao hesitate?
In any case, there was nothing to lose by acknowledging the Xuanyi Mountain Sect as the new four major sect. So why wouldn’t Xu Xiao agree to it?
Fifteen minutes later, on the Spiritnet, the Profound Yellow Sect’s official account released an announcement that shocked the Southern Land. It basically meant that they had acknowledged the Xuanyi Mountain Sect as the fourth major sect.
No one expected the Profound Yellow Sect to make their decision so quickly and directly acknowledge the Xuanyi Mountain Sect as the fourth major sect!
Once this news was out, it immediately caused a huge uproar. Originally, there were still people who doubted the appearance of a Legendary Stage expert in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, but now, they were basically certain!
Seeing that the Profound Yellow Sect had made the first move, the Archaic Mysteries Sect and the Sword Sect immediately followed suit and posted their announcements.
As a result, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect had inexplicably become one of the Four Major Sects of the Southern Land.
