Chapter 200 – Beyond formidable
After the battle was over, Zhao Feng almost couldn’t move. His muscles were aching and his true force was gone.
“More true force is spent in offense than defense. Furthermore, Bei Moi’s cultivation has reached the peak 4th Sky, meaning his true force is denser than mine.” Zhao Feng’s expression was solemn.
That was definitely the most intense battle he had had ever since he entered the Broken Moon Clan. There was no one who had ever fought him to a ‘draw’ before.
“Bei Moi is indeed the Broken Moon Clan’s prodigy.” Zhao Feng sighed.
If the two were to continue, he would probably have to admit defeat due to his true force being spent.
From the beginning till now, Zhao Feng didn’t use any bloodline power and he only used a little bit of lightning.
If his bloodline power was used, Zhao Feng would win without a doubt. However, he would rather lose than do so.
Fighting to a draw was Zhao Feng’s ‘low-key’ decision, but Bei Moi was much stronger than expected and the slightest mistake could mean defeat.
“Zhao Feng!” Vice Head Li smiled faintly and he walked over.
With his experience, he could tell that Zhao Feng’s true force had almost been fully spent.
“Vice Head Li.”
Zhao Feng smiled and greeted Vice Head Li. He was one of the few who had cared for him when he had just entered the Clan.
“Zhao Feng, your Lightning Wind Palm seems to be perfected?” Vice Head Li asked curiously.
“That’s right! After my upgrade, the Lightning Wind Palm will have no danger before the 6th level.”
Zhao Feng didn’t hide this fact.
“This means that at the highest level there will still be danger?”
Vice Head Li was slightly disappointed. At his level, only the sixth level of the Lightning Wind Palm would move him.
Zhao Feng said deeply: “The highest level has the ability to summon the Nine Tribulations Lightning, which can kill any being under the True Spirit Realm and even those at the True Spirit Realm would be wary. It’s not possible for it to have no risk.”
Vice Head Li nodded his head after hearing this.
It wasn’t possible for such a monstrous skill to have no risk.
The Lightning Wind Palm’s greatest treasure was here – even those at the half step – True Spirit Realm would be moved.
In reality, there was another point that Zhao Feng didn’t say!
The Lightning Wind Palm had been perfected by him once more and there was now seven levels instead of six.
The sixth level was unable to summon the Nine Tribulations Lightning, but it could summon the power of natural lightning from the Heavens. Although the sixth level was now much weaker, the risk involved also dropped.
The seventh level involved the use of the Lightning Inheritance and once one succeeded, they would be able to control lightning and even face those at the True Spirit Realm.
But up to now, Zhao Feng’s seventh level was only starting to be created.
“Oh yea, Vice Head Li, I need you to help me with something.” Zhao Feng suddenly remembered something.
“What do you need?”
Vice Head Li was extremely respectful and he led Zhao Feng into the Central Division for a more private talk.
Normal disciples didn’t have such treatment.
“There’s two things. I first want to set a Clan mission.”
Zhao Feng wrote the names of several materials on piece of paper. They were all needed to repair the Yin Shadow Cloak.
Although Zhao Feng could also find these himself, it was much simpler to buy them since he had a large amount of money.
Many higher ups of the Clan would set a mission and they would make disciples get the resources they need.
Zhao Feng decided to set a mission.
Vice Head Li looked and the list and was surprised: “The value of these materials amount up to a large sum.”
“I know, it’ll cost hundreds of thousands of primal crystal stones.”
Zhao Feng didn’t mind. The Clan had given him 8000 low grade primal crystal stones, which was worth 800 hundred substandard primal crystal stones.
The currency used most was substandard primal crystal stones and only high cla.s.s exchanges would use low grade primal crystal stones.
“Ok, since you’ve got a lot of primal crystal stones, I can put this mission up for you.”
Vice Head Li was extremely decisive.
To set the mission cost a certain amount of primal crystal stones and contribution points. This was the fee to find the resources. No one would do anything for free.
Zhao Feng then told Vice Head Li that he wanted to return home.
“Half a month?”
Vice Head Li’s eyebrows slightly furrowed, it was slightly too long. Most Clans were really strict. One would be lucky to have a few days off, much less half a month.
“Disciple here thinks that I can accept a normal mission and visit home at the same time.”
Zhao Feng had it all thought out. It was indeed too long for a half a month leave, but if he left with the name of going on a ‘task’, the time limit would be different.
“Guanjun Province? There’s a mission there, but it has five stars on it.” Vice Head Li said.
Five star missions usually required someone at the 5th Sky.
Zhao Feng looked at the information and the task was to scout out the trails of a Clan from another area. The ‘area’ meant that the faction wasn’t from this country.
If the range was expanded, it might not even be a force in the thirteen countries.
The continent, after all, was too big. Just the northern continent alone had millions of clans. Who would know where this force came from?
Task: To scout out the history of this Clan and estimate their strength. If able, find out their intent.
“No problem, scouting is my forte.” Zhao Feng confidently took the mission.
He was a natural when it came to scouting due to his left eye. Furthermore, he now had an Inheritance item – the Yin Shadow Cloak. This could erase his aura and give him invisibility, giving him the best advantage in scouting.
After taking the mission.
Zhao Feng said goodbye to Vice Head Li and he went to find First Elder.
Both First Elder and Yang Gan were present. The latter had arrived not long ago and he had reported Zhao Feng to First Elder.
“Zhao Feng, did you finish the target I gave you?” First Elder laughed.
Zhao Feng then told the general story of how he challenged the Core disciples.
Yang Gan was shocked as he heard this. In the blink of an eye, Zhao Feng had challenged three Core disciples and almost defeated all of Hai Yun Masters’ disciples.
“Zhao Feng, do you have a feud with Hai Yun Master?” First Elder was slightly stunned.
“Master, there is indeed a small feud.”
Zhao Feng then told First Elder about Lord Guanjun. This wasn’t much of a secret anyway and Zhao Feng wanted to tell First Elder long ago so that Lord Guanjun would be protected.
“No wonder. I’ve heard that Hai Yun Master was young back then and he offended many people. However, I want you to not furtherlise the feud.” First Elder said.
“Relax, Master. I’m not here for vengeance, Disciple only has one goal and that is to surpa.s.s Hai Yun Master and defeat him! Just this!” Zhao Feng immediately said his goal.
First Elder said deeply: “If it’s just this, I have nothing against it.”
He was also slightly happy that he took in this disciples. It seemed like the latter placed great importance on friends.h.i.+p and emotions. If Zhao Feng was indeed able to reach that step, he would be overjoyed.
“Disciple is just worried that Hai Yun Master might not let me grow and might even take it out on Xu Ran and co.” Zhao Feng immediately told him his worries.
“Relax, with me here, Hai Yun Master wouldn’t dare to attack you and taking it out on friends and family is forbidden in the Clan.”
A light flashed in First Elders’ eyes.
“But your Master, I, can’t interfere with the compet.i.tion between the younger generation.” First Elder added.
Zhao Feng nodded his head. With First Elders authority and power, he wouldn’t interfere with the youngsters.
Just like today, Zhao Feng had almost defeated all three disciples of Hai Yun Master, but the latter wouldn’t have interfered.
With First Elder’s promise, no one related to him would be affected Zhao Feng had nothing to worry about.
“Hai Yun Master’s aim is to use Bei Moi to suppress me. However, he doesn’t know that in terms of true strength Bei Moi isn’t my match.” Zhao Feng thought.
The reason why he didn’t defeat Bei Moi was because he could use the latter as a sharpener.
While Zhao Feng was growing, Bei Moi was also doing the same. The two had both received inheritances from the Floating Crest Palace.
With such a good sharpener, how could Hai Yun Master not use it?
Before he left.
First Elder warned: “You must come back in half a month’s time for the Three Clan Party.”
Now that Zhao Feng had reached the top three amongst the Core disciples, there was nothing to stop him from going.
After leaving First Elder, Zhao Feng organised some belongings and he stored them in his interspatial bracelet.
On the second day.
Zhao Feng left the Broken Moon Clan.
As he did so, he realised that both Nan Gongfan and Yang Qingshan had reached the Ascended Realm and they were on their way to become inner disciples.
Zhao Feng nodded his head. After becoming an inner disciple, they would become important disciples to raise and not an ant that could be casually crushed.
On the same day, Zhao Feng left.
Several Elders and the Clan Master gathered.
“The Lin Moon Clan has sent another invitation. Every Clan only has three nominees this time.” The Clan Master said lightly.
“There’s usually four to five. Why is there so little this time?”
Hai Yun Master was slightly surprised.
“I heard that the geniuses of the Silver Moon Clan and Lin Moon Clan are extremely powerful this time. One person from each Clan received an ‘inheritance’ in their respective trials.” The Clan Master continued.
The expressions of the Elders became solemn.
Both the Lin Moon Clan and Silver Moon Clan had disciples receiving inheritances.
Usually, every hundred years or so, there would only be one or two disciples to receive an inheritance and the inheritance wasn’t very powerful.
However, this time every Clan had one person who receive an inheritance.
The compet.i.tion would be fierce.
