The Divine Martial Stars - Chapter 670 - A New Challenge[Updated at: 2021-09-26 06:31:01]
Chapter 670 A New Challenge
Li Mu really only launched one strike.
Some people had heard that Li Yidao only made one strike when he fought with others.
He only needed one strike to survive.
Even if he might die, he still used only one strike.
He could win with a single strike.
Even if he might fail… No, he had never been defeated once he made a move.
Anyway, no one had ever seen him make a second strike.
Originally, they thought that such a situation would only happen in the Brilliance Immortal Star Region because Li Yidao was greatly superior to the Heavenly Legends and cultivators there in strength. But now it didn’t seem to be the case…
There was something weird.
After a short period of silence, the fox girl Bi Yan was the first one to jump up and exult loudly. Her delicate little face was flushed, as pretty as roses blossoming in June.
Dongfang Piaoliang’s eyes sparkled with excitement as he applauded fiercely.
Most of the cultivators of the Brilliance Immortal Star Region were thrilled and loudly cheered for Li Mu.
Li Yidao actually won.
As for Saint of Blood Sea and the other Heavenly Legends from the Brilliance Immortal Star Region, their faces darkened.
Not only did that the strike acted as a slap in the face after they taunted Li Yidao, but it also made them realize that the gap between themselves and Li Yidao might be bigger than what they had thought.
The latter was what made them feel most overwhelmed and powerless.
On the other hand, Bloody-moon Evil Master, who was standing behind Saint of Blood Sea, had a normal expression on his face. He had mocked Li Mu hard before, and now he just lowered his head as usual and said nothing, as if it had nothing to do with him.
Then Li Mu slowly walked down from the Immortal-slaying Platform.
Without shooting another glance at Lin Qingxuan, he left with the fox girl.
Many cultivators of the Brilliance Immortal Star Region felt so proud that they applauded and shouted behind Li Mu.
They had long been regarded as people coming from a remote, wild Star Region and had been discriminated against in many parts of the Ziwei Star Zone. Very few cultivators from the Brilliance Immortal Star Region could show their might in places like the White Earth.
Therefore, at this time, the cultivators of the Brilliance Immortal Star Region were on the verge of tears out of pride.
Lin Qingxuan stood where he was, looking blank.
He couldn’t figure out what was going on with Li Mu’s last strike.
He had Li Yidao cornered and there was no chance for his opponent to turn the tables. Why did the man suddenly change the situation and beat him with just one move?
On the List of Heavenly Legends of the Star Regions, Li Yidao was more than 200 places behind Lin Qingxuan.
The gap was not as simple as 200 steps, but more like 200 natural moats. How did Li Yidao get over it so easily?
Lin Qingxuan came to the conclusion that Li Yidao must have been hiding his power.
He turned to leave, his thoughts in confusion.
Reihom and the other Heavenly Legends and cultivators of the Storm Star Region followed behind him and left in a dejected manner.
A lot of people were very critical of Reihom.
If he had not foolishly challenged Li Yidao, the entire Storm Star Region would not have been humiliated today.
All their humiliation was caused by Reihom.
Reihom felt so wronged that he couldn’t explain himself.
He had chosen his target very rationally, but who knew he had come up against such a strong man?
There was no doubt that Li Yidao of the Brilliance Immortal Star Region was going to be famous.
Back at the inn, Li Mu immediately entered the practice room and reflected on the battle with Lin Qingxuan.
Without a doubt, apart from the mysterious Heavenly Fox Clan’s envoy, Lin Qingxuan was the most powerful cultivator he had ever met. He was indeed worthy of being the top Heavenly Legend of the Storm Star Region.
Without the Eye of Flaws and the Somersault Cloud, it would have been a long and arduous battle for Li Mu to defeat Lin Qingxuan today.
In particular, Lin Qingxuan’s swordsmanship came from another Star Region, which was a great reference for Li Mu.
After having left the Brilliance Immortal Star Region and seen the martial arts displayed by the cultivators in the other Star Regions, Li Mu felt that he was growing into a man of broad outlook.
While he was doing closed-door training, the outside world was already in an uproar.
The two players were separated by more than 200 rankings, but the person with the lower ranking won. This was the first time this over the hundreds of challenges that had taken place.
Li Yidao of the Brilliance Immortal Star Region, who had been thought to be a foil, suddenly became famous.
In particular, as people paid more attention to him, some of his stories had been uncovered.
For example, he had only made one move in every battle, and no one had ever seen him make a second one.
This special case had undoubtedly added a lot of legend to the top Heavenly Legend of the Brilliance Immortal Star Region.
At the Heavenly Fox Clan’s initiative, the competition for more than 1,000 Heavenly Legends was ranked by points. The numbers of victories and defeats were combined to determine the final ranking list. The competition had attracted the attention of countless people.
In addition to the individual ranking of the Heavenly Legends, there was also a ranking of the Star Regions.
All the battles that took place on the Immortal-slaying Platform would be recorded by light and shadows. There would also be special people to analyze the records and try to make the most accurate judgment of the strength of the Heavenly Legends that had participated in the battles.
The battles between Li Mu and Reihom as well as Li Mu and Lin Qingxuan had attracted many people’s attention because of the unexpected results. Therefore, some people watched the records of the two battles over and over again, trying to figure out how Li Mu could have won.
But they found almost nothing.
The battle between Li Yidao and Reihom had no analytical value as they had a big difference in strength.
Most of the people were concerned about the battle between Li Mu and Lin Qingxuan.
However, many cultivators found that although the only strike Li Mu had launched was amazing, it did not have absolute overwhelming power against Lin Qingxuan. It looked very strange, as if there suddenly was an unexpected flaw in Lin Qingxuan’s swordsmanship and Li Mu noticed it.
And that was all.
It seemed that it was because Li Mu was luckier than Lin Qingxuan.
However, the direct results of these two battles were that Li Yidao rose from below 900th to 521st on the List of Heavenly Legends of the Star Regions.
Besides, the Brilliance Immortal Star Region had moved up one place to 109th.
Many cultivators of the Brilliance Immortal Star Region cheered.
The name “Li Yidao” gradually gained some fame in the Immortal Net of the White Earth.
Of course, Li Yidao could not be compared with those peerless talents who were ranked in the top 20 on the List of Heavenly Legends of the Star Regions.
So far, except the two Heavenly Legends who were from two of the six top forces, no one else dared to challenge them, let alone to defeat them.
As for the two Heavenly Legends, Luo Dongcheng and Guan Shanxue, they were both challenged once and finally won easily with a casual strike.
The top 20 Heavenly Legends on the List of Heavenly Legends of the Star Regions were very powerful and unfathomable. Even many masters of the older generation were far behind them in strength.
These 20 people were like 20 mountains that weighed down on the hearts of the other Heavenly Legends and they were unable to shake them.
On the Immortal-slaying Platform, the real challenge mostly took place between two Heavenly Legends ranked between 100th to 700th on the list.
Not long after he defeated Lin Qingxuan, Li Mu received another challenge invitation.
“Murong Gong, who ranks 432nd in the List of Heavenly Legends of the Star Regions?”
After reading the invitation, Li Mu took up the challenge without hesitation.
He needed to win the challenge to improve his points and ranking.
The innkeeper, Dongfang Piaoliang, rushed over as soon as he learned the news.
“Young Hero Li, are you sure you can win this battle?” The chubby and smiling innkeeper looked quite concerned about Li Mu.
As he spoke, he took out a piece of white jade with Water Mirror Technique in it and handed it to Li Mu. He said, “There is the detailed information of Murong Gong on it. He ranks sixth in the Heavenly Voice Star Region. He has been on the Immortal-slaying Platform eight times, winning all of them and showing strong momentum. He is good at hooked swords, and his skill has reached the acme of perfection. His cultivation is at the peak of the General Realm…”
Li Mu took the jade, injected his natural qi into it, and with a flash of light, a paragraph appeared in front of him. It was exactly the detailed information of Murong Gong.
The man had ascended the Immortal-slaying Platform eight times in a row and won all the battles. He was a formidable figure, but each of his battles was recorded in relative detail.
After reading the text of the introduction, Li Mu found that the whole process of Murong Gong’s eight battles was recorded in the jade.
“Your honor, there is one thing I’ve been wanting to ask you.” Li Mu put away the jade and looked at the innkeeper.
Dongfang Piaoliang smiled slightly and said, “I know. You want to ask why I’ve been helping you, right?”
“Yes. Please tell me, your honor,” Li Mu replied.
Grinning, Dongfang Piaoliang explained, “The reason is very simple. The Heavenly Legends of each Star Region will choose an inn to live in. If the Heavenly Legends perform well in the challenge match, it will also be a great honor for the inferior innkeeper, and he can get a reward from the temple.”
Li Mu understood.
The doubts in his heart instantly disappeared.
While they talked, the flying shuttle was ready.
Li Mu, the fox girl Bi Yan, and the innkeeper boarded the flying shuttle and rushed to the Immortal-slaying Platform.
Along the way, Li Mu had watched all the records about Murong Gong’s eight battles with the help of the Water Mirror Technique.
He had already seen the flaws in the Cultivation Method of the Heavenly Legend who ranked sixth in the Heavenly Voice Star Region.
“Here we are.”
The flying shuttle came to a halt.
Li Mu directly went onto the Immortal-slaying Platform.
Murong Gong had been waiting on the platform for a long time.
The Heavenly Voice Star Region was a medium-ranked Star Region in the Ziwei Star Zone. It had a vast territory with many affiliated stars and was rich in mineral resources. Murong Gong looked to be in his thirties. He had a lean body, a long face, thick eyebrows, a slightly flat nose, and an ordinary appearance.
When he saw Li Mu, his eyes lit up, like a hunter who had seen his prey. He released a natural aura of danger and bloodlust.
In an instant, Li Mu felt a chill in his heart.
This man’s cultivation was even higher than Lin Qingxuan’s.
There were indeed impressive Heavenly Legends in all the Star Regions.
Li Mu reached back and held the hilt of his broadsword behind his left shoulder.
Everyone’s heart immediately skipped a beat when they saw that.
Now almost all the cultivators who were paying attention to Li Yidao had already known that when he was about to make a move, he would reach back with his right hand to grab the hilt of his broadsword. This was his habit of starting his attack.
Why was he going to launch an attack before his opponent made a move?
Why was he so careless and arrogant?
