This was the only word on Luo Yunyangs mind as he saw the figure radiating with a majestic purple glow.
He had put in a lot of thought and effort for two of the great underworld halls and ultimately shrouded the entire Mysterious Underworld Race in a great war. However, just as everything had been going smoothly, Jiuzi Xuanming had to pop out.
Furthermore, his cultivation base had progressed significantly. Although Jiuzi Xuanming seemed to only be a Taishi Yuan Venerate, nobody in the entire Mysterious Underworld Race dared to treat him as an ordinary Taishi Yuan Venerate.
Jiuzi Xuanming had already possessed a status greater than an ordinary Taishi Yuan Venerates even before becoming a Yuan Venerate. Now that he had entered the realm of the Yuan Venerate, many people felt that Jiuzi Xuanmings status should probably be similar to the six hall masters.
Some wiser Mysterious Underworld beings felt that once Jiuzi Xuanming made his move, he could change the trends of the Mysterious Underworld Race.
The original state of mutual hostility was now constrained, and the target of repression was Sky Martial Underworld Hall.
Sky Martial Underworld Hall had originally been somewhat inferior compared to Ancient Underworld Hall in terms of strength. Now, the reason Sky Martial Underworld Hall dared challenge Ancient Underworld Halls position was mainly because of Ancient Underworld Halls failure at Burial Underworld Earth.
This mistake had allowed Sky Martial Underworld Hall to take the initiative and made Sky Gold Underworld Hall and Sky Moon Underworld Hall stand firmly with Sky Martial Underworld Hall.
After all, Sky Martial Underworld Hall had allowed the other underworld halls to see a hope of victory.
However, even though this had given Sky Martial Underworld Hall their greatest confidence, this confidence crumbled in an instant the moment Jiuzi Xuanming appeared.
Jiuzi Xuanming had become a Yuan Venerate and his cultivation base had soared. This was a publicly-recognized fact.
It could be said that countless Mysterious Underworld beings had been eagerly anticipating this.
Now, Jiuzi Xuanming, who was at the Yuan Venerate realm, was supporting Ancient Underworld Hall. Thus, the momentum that had strayed far away returned to the side of Ancient Underworld Hall.
Even though the enmity between Ancient Underworld Hall and Mysterious Underworld Hall was difficult to reverse, the attitude of Sky Gold Underworld Hall and Sky Moon Underworld Hall had changed.
After all, the two underworld halls werent the vassals of Sky Martial Underworld Hall. They definitely werent going to throw away their future prospects by betting on a war that they would most likely lose before it had begun.
While they would still suffer losses by changing their attitude now, this was still the lesser of two evils and it was far better than losing a war alongside Sky Martial Underworld Hall.
In the eyes of many Mysterious Underworld powerhouses, Jiuzi Xuanmings decision to challenge Nalanye now was meant to deflate Nalanyes head as a show of might.
Of course, there was also the intent to cripple Sky Martial Underworld Halls power.
Luo Yunyangs killing intent intensified as he watched the lofty Jiuzi Xuanming high in the sky.
He wasnt going to break off from this fight, as he couldnt allow the objective he had spent great effort to achieve to be concluded in this sort of way.
Plus, based on what he had observed of the Mysterious Underworld Races power, while the Human Race might not lose a fight against the Mysterious Underworld Race, there was still a disparity in terms of strength.
Based on this, Luo Yunyang was even more determined to see his plan come to fruition.
Nalanye, you are the successor of the Second Ancient Yuan Underworld Lord. Do you not even have the guts to come out and fight me? The indifferent voice rang all around the void.
Upon hearing these provocative words, Luo Yunyang strode out of the large hall he was in.
Nalanye, dont let your emotions affect your decisions! The Sky Martial Underworld Hall Masters silhouette had appeared in the void in a strange manner.
Although the Sky Martial Underworld Hall Master didnt seem any different on the surface, Luo Yunyang could see a faint hint of weariness on the Sky Martial Underworld Hall Masters face.
Weariness shouldnt appear on the face of an entity like the Sky Martial Underworld Hall Master. However, the weary Sky Martial Underworld Hall Master showed exactly how much pressure he was under right now.
Pressure! Thats right, he felt pressure!
The strive for supremacy with Ancient Underworld Hall had left the Sky Martial Underworld Hall Master with no path of retreat. Just as he had been about to lead Sky Martial Underworld Hall to the highest glory, Jiuzi Xuanming had popped up like a burning sun.
Even though it was only Jiuzi Xuanming, Jiuzi Xuanming had just become a Yuan Venerate.
He merely took one look at Jiuzi Xuanming and became aware that Jiuzi Xuanmings current combat strength probably wasnt any weaker than his own. More importantly, he felt that he couldnt see through Jiuzi Xuanming right now!
Given his peak Taichu Yuan Venerate cultivation base, seeing through an ordinary Taishi Yuan Venerate was supposed to be really easy.
However, the fact that he was unable to see through him only meant one thing. The Jiuzi Xuanming before his eyes had already surpassed him.
Even though he was under a great deal of pressure, he had still rushed over right away when he had heard about Jiuzi Xuanmings challenge against Nalanye.
Nalanye, you dont have to clash with Jiuzi Xuanming. He has just become a Yuan Venerate and hes overflowing with power. You will suffer if you clash with him now, the Sky Martial Underworld Hall Master advised him, Just bear with it.
Luo Yunyang glanced at the Sky Martial Underworld Hall Master and said, Dont worry, Hall Master. Even though Jiuzi Xuanming has become a Yuan Venerate, I still dont fear him.
Furthermore, we already have no way of turning back now!
The Sky Martial Underworld Hall Master looked at Luo Yunyang earnestly and hesitated for a moment before taking out a red five-edged spear.
When this spear was drawn, it looked like a divine dragon howling in the void.
I obtained this Skyfire Divine Spear from a Yuan Venerate almighty eons ago, but I have never used it all this time. Now, I am giving it to you.
Luo Yunyang knew this weapon was extraordinary when he sensed the five nomological laws that acted as one within the Yuan Venerate weapon. Even though he rarely used spear weapons, this didnt mean that he didnt know how to use them.
Furthermore, after reaching this sort of level, he could easily change forms. With this Skyfire Divine Spear, Luo Yunyangs combat prowess would go up another notch.
Luo Yunyang didnt reject the Sky Martial Underworld Hall Masters kind offer. He took the Skyfire Divine Spear and said, Hall Master, you dont have to be discouraged. We havent reached the very end yet. This time, I will definitely win!
As Luo Yunyang said the word win, Jiuzi Xuanmings voice once again echoed in the void. Nalanye, dont make me look down on you and Sky Martial Underworld Hall.
No matter what you say, you are also the Sky Martial Underworld Halls Deputy Hall Master. Even though you are shameless, you cant just throw Sky Martial Underworld Halls reputation down the drain.
If you dont have the courage to have a fair fight, then Sky Martial Underworld Hall doesnt have the face to even vie to become the top underworld hall.
The Sky Martial Underworld Hall Masters eyes burned with anger. Jiuzi Xuanming was the person that irked him the most. Thus, he was feeling extremely uncomfortable now that Jiuzi Xuanming was practically berating them at their door.
Luo Yunyang nodded at the Sky Martial Underworld Hall Master and took to the void. As he flew up, he utilized the God Sky Conversion Technique.
Meanwhile, he also used Ning Shenxius World Walking Technique, which he had gained back in the Tianyushen Void.
Although this sort of cultivation technique wouldnt improve Luo Yunyangs strength much, it was a method used to gather energy.
Compared to Ning Shenxius individual steps, a single step of Luo Yunyangs was 10,000 miles long. In nine steps, he had reached the peak of the void.
With each of these nine steps, Luo Yunyangs body doubled in size. His aura also multiplied with each step.
Once these nine steps were completed, the now gigantic Luo Yunyang had 33 skies behind him. Each level of sky had an Underworld General.
Jiuzi Xuanming, you junior, who has just reached Yunyang, should cultivate properly and consolidate your realm rather than bark his head off over here! Luo Yunyang exclaimed before Jiuzi Xuanming could speak.
Jiuzi Xuanmings aura was imposing, and he could already suppress the entire Sky Martial Underworld Hall just with his power alone. It could even be said that he was suppressing the entire Sky Martial Underworld Halls alliance.
Luo Yunyang wouldnt be kind to this person, who had wrecked his plans. Thus, he insulted Jiuzi Xuanming the moment he came up.
The word Junior caused Jiuzi Xuanmings heart to shudder. How many years had he cultivated compared to the amount of time Nalanye had cultivated?
In terms of age, any of Jiuzi Xuanmings lives alone would be more than Nalanyes. However, Nalanye had actually shamelessly called him a junior. This was simply unbearable!
Nalanye, how insolent of you! I should be calling you junior, Jiuzi Xuanming said in a mocking manner.
Why cant I call you a junior? Luo Yunyang smirked, When it comes to cultivation, the enlightened ones come first. I became a Yuan Demon before you, so I naturally am your senior. Whats wrong with calling you a junior?
Jiuzi Xuanmings face was pitch-black. Although he knew that this war of words had no meaning, the verbal sparring between them had reached the ears of the entire Mysterious Underworld Race.
Nalanye, stop trying to use words to win. You threw the Mysterious Underworld Race into chaos, which is an unforgivable crime. Today, I shall slay you and restore order to the Mysterious Underworld Race.
Jiuzi Xuanming didnt allow Luo Yunyang to reply. Instead, he formed hand seals and slammed a palm toward Luo Yunyang.
This palm seemed to contain no variations, but it contained practically all of Jiuzi Xuanmings power.
Luo Yunyang also unleashed a fist-strike at the same time that Jiuzi Xuanming attacked. Just like Jiuzi Xuanming, Luo Yunyangs fist didnt appear to have any variations.
Fist and palm collided in the boundless void!
