Eternal Sacred King - Chapter 2241
2241 Ranking Battle
As time passed by, the names on the Earth Ranking stele increased.
As for Su Zimo, he guarded this place. The remaining three Earth Immortals of the Great Jin Immortal Kingdom and Flying Immortal Sect did not manage to escape and were killed by him in the Nine Heavens!
Prince Yuan Zuo and Heaven Immortal White Sea could only watch helplessly.
At that moment, all 22 peak Earth Immortals of the Great Jin Immortal Kingdom and Flying Immortal Sect were annihilated without exception!
Earth Immortals, even the strongest Earth Immortals, were nothing to these two factions.
In Flying Immortal Sect, Earth Immortals were only outer sect disciples.
In the Great Jin Immortal Kingdom, they were only Earth Execution Guards.
The loss of more than 20 people was nothing to the two factions—it could not even amount to a single strand of hair.
However, the impact on the reputation of the two factions was immeasurable!
The two factions joined forces with a reincarnated immortal in the fray but were killed by a single person and removed from the Earth Ranking. Before long, the news would spread through the entire Divine Firmament Mainland and cause a huge stir!
In fact, for a long time to come, it would become the topic of discussion for many cultivators in Divine Firmament Mainland.
Prince Yuan Zuo and Heaven Immortal White Sea would be regarded as failures.
Naturally, the Great Jin Immortal Kingdom and Flying Immortal Sect would be implicated as well.
Although the elimination round was still ongoing, many cultivators in the square were no longer interested.
Everyone merely looked up occasionally to see whose name was added to the stele.
Most of them were still excited, immersed in what was probably the most earthshaking Earth Immortal battle earlier on!
“Su Zimo from the academy has truly become famous after a single battle.”
“That’s right. It doesn’t matter even if he doesn’t have to take part in the ranking battle next. Even the top of the Earth Ranking this time round won’t be able to cover his glory.”
For many cultivators, the fight for the Earth Ranking was purely for fame.
Su Zimo had already obtained enough treasures in the Nine Heavens this time round.
Now, he was renowned through a shocking battle.
To everyone, it no longer mattered whether Su Zimo continued to take part in the ranking battle.
Another two hours passed. Apart from Immortal Tai Hua and the others who died, there were already a hundred Earth Immortals on the Earth Ranking stele!
This also meant that the elimination round of the Earth Ranking was officially over.
Perfected Immortal Xie Ling stood up slowly and his glabella shone. His hands changed continuously in midair and released True Essence divine lights that entered the mirror in the firmaments.
The scenes reflected in the firmaments gradually dissipated.
Thereafter, a gigantic crack appeared in the void and countless figures fell out like fishes.
Many cultivators controlled their bodies and returned to the Yan Yang Palace, feeling as though a lifetime had passed.
More than a hundred thousand Earth Immortals died in the elimination round!
The other cultivators descended one after another and returned to their sects. Under the control of Xie Ling’s spirit consciousness, the hundred cultivators on the Earth Ranking stele hovered in midair above the square and were watched by everyone!
The hundred cultivators were arranged in a vertical row according to the ranking of the elimination round.
Their leader was the number one of the elimination round, Feng Yin!
“The first is Feng Yin, as was predicted.”
“Strange, the second is Yue Feng of Mountain Sea Immortal Sect? The third is Princess Scarlet Rainbow? Where’s Immortal Tai Hua?”
Most of the Earth Immortals who participated in the elimination round had just come out of the Nine Heavens and did not know what happened in Level 5.
“Tie Han and Qing Chenzi aren’t in the top ten either?”
“What’s going on?”
“Psst! Who is that? Why is he carrying so many heads?!”
An Earth Immortal exclaimed when he saw Su Zimo who was ranked 68th.
The 22 bloodstained heads had their long hairs intertwined into a bundle that was held in the hands of a refined cultivator in green robes—it looked extremely shocking!
Some Earth Immortals focused their gazes and saw the heads of Immortal Tai Hua, Tie Han and the others that they mentioned earlier on!
The Earth Immortals were shocked. A cultivator of the same sect beside them had long recounted the battle that broke out in Level 5 in a low voice. Instantly, the square was noisy.
Piak! Piak! Piak!
A round of applause sounded from the banquet as Yun Ting stood up slowly and declared, “Su Zimo, you did not disappoint me indeed. I did not come for nothing this time round. Good kills, that was an enjoyable battle!”
“Remember the challenge between us. I’ll be waiting for you on the Heaven Ranking!”
Yun Ting burst into laughter and was prepared to leave.
He had already achieved his goal for this trip and was unwilling to stay here any longer.
“The ranking battle is about to begin. Aren’t you going to continue watching, Prince Yun Ting?”
Xie Ling asked with a smile.
“There’s nothing to see.”
Yun Ting waved it off. “Even without the ranking battle, there’s only a single person worthy of being at the top of the Earth Ranking this time round!”
Yun Ting did not say it explicitly, but everyone could tell who he was referring to. In everyone’s heart, they had already made their own judgment as well.
In that battle, Su Zimo killed 18 Earth Immortals singlehandedly, including the extremely famous Immortal Tai Hua, Tie Han and other Earth Immortal experts. He was indeed worthy of the title of the top of the Earth Ranking.
Xie Ling smiled gently. “No matter what, according to the rules, the ranking battle has to be carried out. Only the number one of the ranking battle is the top of the Earth Ranking.”
Heaven Immortal Green Peak added, “There are many methods available to Earth Immortals in a fight. In the Nine Heavens, their combat strength is restricted and they can’t unleash their full strength. That battle can’t prove anything.”
Feng Yin was from Imperial Wind Temple.
Naturally, he was unwilling to give in when he saw that the reputation and glory of the top of the Earth Ranking was about to be snatched away by Su Zimo.
Furthermore, beside the Earth Ranking stele, Su Zimo patted Mo Qian on the shoulder as though he was teaching a child a lesson. That made Heaven Immortal Green Peak very uncomfortable and he would not let Su Zimo be too smug.
Yun Ting pouted and ignored Heaven Immortal Green Peak.
Everyone naturally had their own standards and he could not be bothered to argue with them.
Yun Ting stood up and was about to leave when his gaze shifted to the seats of the Great Jin Immortal Kingdom and Flying Immortal Sect. He mocked, “Yuan Zuo, White Sea, what are the two of you still doing here?”
“It’s none of your business!”
Prince Yuan Zuo replied coldly.
The two of them had ugly expressions. If they could attack Yun Ting, they would have torn him into pieces long ago!
Yun Ting pouted and shook his head. “The Earth Immortals of the Great Jin Immortal Kingdom and Flying Immortal Sect have already been removed from the Earth Ranking. Aren’t you guys embarrassed enough? Instead of scampering away, you’re still going to stay here?”
“Our people are indeed dead, but the cultivators of other sects and factions are still on the Earth Ranking,”
Heaven Immortal White Sea harrumphed coldly. “Since you said that Su Zimo is the top of the Earth Ranking, let’s see what he has to work with!”
Everyone knew that Su Zimo had expended a lot of energy using all his trump cards in the battle of the Nine Heavens. Coupled with the fact that he was injured, he would definitely not be able to fight for a spot on the Earth Ranking.
At the very least, Su Zimo would not be able to get through Feng Yin!
Feng Yin had arrived at the Earth Ranking stele a long time ago and had been conserving his energy. He had long recovered to his peak condition.
As for Su Zimo, he was already exhausted after consecutive battles.
In that regard, the difference between them was way too great.
