The punch of the gray-robed old man shook heaven and earth. His aura was majestic, and his strength was boundless, as if he could wipe everything out.
Relying on this fist technique, the gray-robed old man had once killed a Supreme Stage fiend beast head-on. It had extremely strong penetrative power.
Even if Qin Jue really had some mysterious way to keep himself alive, it was impossible for him to be unscathed by this attack!
Finally, the gray-robed old man’s fist hit Qin Jue’s chest.
There was no storm, nor was there any spirit energy wreaking havoc.
After a brief moment of silence, the gray-robed elder raised his head with difficulty and spat out three words, “This is impossible…”
Before he finished speaking, a crack that was visible to the naked eye appeared on his fist. Following that, the crack continued to spread out like a web, quickly crawling up his entire arm and finally covering his entire body.
It was only at this moment that the old man understood that they had been wrong from the very beginning. Qin Jue was not a Supreme Stage expert at all, but an existence that surpassed Supreme Stage and even Legendary Stage!
At this moment, a gust of wind blew past, and this gray-robed elder instantly turned into dust that was scattered by the wind.
“Uh… I haven’t even gotten to do anything yet.” Qin Jue was rather depressed.
The punch from the gray-robed elder just now was even more powerful than Wei Yunge’s attack with the Soul Devouring Sword. Furthermore, Wei Yunge had the Soul Devouring Sword as a medium, while the gray-robed elder had nothing in between. Naturally, he was turned into scraps by the backlash.
If Qin Jue had made the move instead, perhaps there would still be half a corpse left.
“Almost time to go back.” Stretching lazily, Qin Jue looked around and slowly rose into the air. He raised his arm and slapped down.
A formless shock wave spread out, raising dust that filled the sky and shaking the surrounding 50 kilometers.
When Qin Jue had raised his palm, a giant handprint hundreds of meters in diameter had appeared above. Whether it was the 32 Wei Clan Heaven Stage experts or the close-to-dying Wei Yunge, all of them were obliterated in an instant by this palm.
Then, Qin Jue smashed the Great City-Barrier Formation, which was said to be able to withstand the full attack of several Supreme Stage experts, with a single punch. After that, he vanished in an instant.
The Wei Clan’s higher-ups had already all been completely wiped out.
As for what would happen to the remaining Wei Clan members, Qin Jue had no interest in knowing.
If it wasn’t for Qin Jue’s strength, Xuanyi Mountain Sect would have taken the place of the Wei Clan and would have been destroyed.
“What’s going on now? The Great City-Barrier Formation seems to have been broken!”
“Heavens! It can’t be a Legendary Stage expert, could it?!”
“There was a huge commotion over there just now.”
“Eh? Wasn’t that place sealed off by the Wei Clan?”
“I saw a Wei Family Cloud Piercing Spirit Ship land there. I wonder what happened.”
“Could it be that the Wei Family is fighting with a high-level expert?”
Some experts with higher cultivation bases relied on their strength and carefully arrived at the place where the Cloud Piercing Spirit Ship had landed. However, all they saw was a bottomless giant handprint.
“Oh my! What happened here?” The expert hadn’t even finished speaking when a roar suddenly echoed out from the distance. It was clear and bright, and resounded throughout the city.
Immediately, everyone saw a fiend beast fly into the sky and disappear in the blink of an eye.
“If I’m not wrong, that seems to be the Wei Clan Patriarch’s contracted fiend beast, the Heaven Devouring Horned Dragon…”
“This fiend beast has been guarding the Wei Family for more than fifty years and has never left.”
Everyone knew that the most famous cultivation technique of the Wei Clan allowed them to contract with a fiend beast. However, if the cultivator who contracted with the beast died, the contract would automatically be terminated. The Heaven Devouring Horned Dragon had already guarded the Wei clan for more than fifty years, and now, for it to suddenly leave…
A bold idea suddenly entered everyone’s mind.
At this moment, another deafening roar rang out. Another fiend beast appeared in the distance and flew in the same direction as the Heaven Devouring Horned Dragon.
Without waiting for the crowd to react, fiend beasts flew up one after another. About thirty of them followed closely behind the dragon, and each of them had at least reached the Heaven Stage.
Everyone looked at each other, dumbfounded.
What was going on?
“Two Supreme Stage and over thirty Heaven Stage fiend beasts… Could it be…?”
Everyone looked down at the bottomless giant handprint and gulped.
At the same time, Qin Jue, who was responsible for all that, was unaware of what was currently happening in Brilliance City as he was on his way back to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
It wasn’t that he didn’t want to eradicate the roots and eliminate those fiend beasts that had contracted with the Wei Clan, but he… had forgotten.
However, those fiend beasts had originally been forced to contract with their masters anyway. Now that their masters were dead and the contracts had been terminated, they couldn’t be happier, so why would they seek revenge on Qin Jue?
The reason why Qin Jue didn’t directly teleport back to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect was because he wanted to take a look at the scenery along the way. And from his encounter with the Wei Clan this time, he had also come into contact with some new things that he had never seen before. For example, the rune that could restrict a cultivator’s spirit energy but didn’t need to be attached to a spirit artifact.
The Southern Land was vast and boundless. According to Qin Jue’s estimation, it should be about five or six times the size of Earth’s surface. Previously, for the Demon-Slaying Gathering, he had simply used teleportation to travel across half of the Southern Land to head to the Archaic Mysteries Sect.
If it were an ordinary Heaven Stage cultivator, even if they were to use a transmission formation for part of the way, they wouldn’t be able to reach it without two months of travel unless they were riding a Heaven Stage or even higher leveled flying spirit artifact.
Although Qin Jue didn’t use teleportation this time, he was still moving pretty fast. After all, he liked to stay at home and didn’t want to be outside for too long. Also, he was traveling high in the sky, so no one noticed him along the way.
On the afternoon of the second day, Qin Jue could already see the Xuanyi Mountain Sect from afar, so he slowed down, took out a pot of wine, and hummed a song as he landed on the mountaintop.
Subsequently, Qin Jue discovered that there was now a stone tablet erected outside the main hall.
On it was written: The Sect Master’s strength is unparalleled, greatest in the world.
What the hell?
Qin Jue was dumbfounded.
In truth, all of this was related to the battle between Qin Jue and Wei Longtao two days ago.
With a mountain peak pulverized, the battle had been extremely destructive. Therefore, it had alarmed all the cultivators of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
On the other hand, when they found out that the sect master had displayed his might and defeated the invading enemies, all of them were wild with joy and felt a wave of pride.
With such a powerful sect master holding down the fort, who would dare to offend the Xuanyi Mountain Sect in the future?
Among them, there was even a cultivator who had carved a stone tablet to praise the great deed Bai Ye had accomplished. The sect master was, naturally, very happy about it and simply erected the stone tablet outside the hall.
No doubt about it. In order to prevent anyone from “disturbing” Qin Jue, Bai Ye had shamelessly taken all the credit.
“Ah! Junior Brother, you’re back! I knew you’d be fine, hahaha.” Seeing Qin Jue, Bai Ye immediately walked out of the hall with a smile.
Qin Jue rolled his eyes. “The Wei Clan’s matter has already been resolved. We shouldn’t have troublesome visitors in the future anymore.”
“I know, I know!”
Bai Ye nodded repeatedly and took out a jade tablet. “Look, the Spiritnet has already reported it.”
Qin Jue looked down and indeed saw a line of blood-red words: Shocking! The Wei Clan’s two Supreme Stage experts and several Heaven Stage cultivators suddenly disappeared, and their high-level fiend beasts all left one after another. Is it the wickedness of human nature, or…
Qin Jue: “???”
