Library of Heaven's Path - chapter-1485
Xuan could not help but scoff on the inside. Nevertheless, he still waved
his hand and ordered, “Inferno Qilin, stop.”
As awful as Elder Ge’s words sounded, they also made sense.
The Sanctum of Sages was the highest academy on the Master Teacher
Continent. Even though its standing was not on par with the Master
Teacher Pavilion, and its strength had declined over time, its prestige
and rallying power were still not to be underestimated.
In the first place, making a move on the incumbent deputy sanctum head
and an elder could already be considered an extremely contemptible
action. If it were to be known that he had severely wounded or even
killed them, he could be making himself an enemy of the entire upper
echelon of the Master Teacher Continent!
Upon hearing the command, as infuriated as the Inferno Qilin was, it did
not dare go against Zhang Xuan’s order. Thus, it reluctantly retracted
its hoof and backed off.
Zhan shi and Elder Ge heaved a deep sigh of relief. It was only at this
moment that they suddenly realized that their robes were completely
soaked in sweat.
Had the Inferno Qilin continued its attack, even if they walked out of
there alive, they could have ended up being crippled for life.
Taking a deep breath, Zhang Xuan suppressed his emotions before stepping
forward and clasping his fist. “It’s not my intention to make a move on
the two of you. However, I really do have urgent matters to attend to,
and I can’t afford to waste any time. I beg your pardon for this.”
He was deeply displeased by Zhan shi and Elder Ge’s actions, but this was
not the time for him to fall out completely with them. The Zhang Clan was
already on his back; he did not need to add the Sanctum of Sages into his
list of pursuers.
slightly apprehensive glance at the Inferno Qilin before harrumphing
He felt infuriated inside, but there was no way he could vent his rage.
All along, he had viewed Zhang Xuan as someone who was within his
control, but who would have thought that in a month of absence, the other
party had already become a dragon soaring in the sky, far beyond his
“Allow me to reassure you that I’ll personally resolve the unhappiness
with the Zhang Clan in the near future, so there’s no need to worry about
that. The reason I’m here today is to borrow the 9-star formation flags,
and I hope that Zhan shi can grant my request!” Zhang Xuan said.
Zhan shi looked at Zhang Xuan deeply for a long moment before sighing
deeply and saying, “Very well then, I’ll take your word for it. I hope
that you won’t let me down.”
Following which, he flicked his wrist and took out over a hundred
formation flags. Every single one of them was made of a particularly
resilient material. It was clear that they were all high-tier.
Grade-9 formation flags!
With the Inferno Qilin and the Netherworld Azure Dragon Beast watching
from the side, Zhan shi felt that Zhang Xuan would order his tamed beast
to snatch the formation flags from him by force if he refused. Rather
than suffer for nothing, he thought that it would be wiser to hand them
“Thank you, Zhan shi.”
Zhang Xuan took the formation flags and examined them closely. After
verifying that these formation flags were indeed suited for the
construction of Teleportation Formations, he heaved a sigh of relief
before turning his head toward the collapsed doorway. “Come in!”
It was only upon hearing Zhang Xuan’s words that Zhan shi and Elder Ge
realized that there was someone standing by the doorway. She was the
genius from the Glacier Plain Court who had just enrolled earlier in the
year, Chen Leyao!
young lady was staring at the rubble lying around the place with widened
eyes. When she caught sight of the trail of blood trickling down from
Zhan shi and Elder Ge’s lips, she could not help but clasp her agape
mouth in shock.
They were only there to borrow formation flags, not to raid the place.
Was it really necessary to go so far?
How were they supposed to resolve the situation peacefully now that such
a situation had happened?
However, she also knew that it was meaningless to think too much about it
now—what was done was done. Thus, she quickly walked over to Zhang Xuan.
Paying no heed to Chen Leyao’s shock, Zhang Xuan hurriedly sent a
telepathic message over. “Tell me the exact location of the Glacier Plain
Without any hesitation, Chen Leyao quickly informed Zhang Xuan of the
exact location of the Glacier Plain Court telepathically. “It’s located
in the extreme north…”
“Got it!” After hearing the location from Chen Leyao, a map swiftly
surfaced in Zhang Xuan’s mind as he quickly gauged the distance and
direction of the destination from the Sanctum of Sages.
When setting up a Teleportation Formation, especially for ones with
intended destinations as far as the one that Zhang Xuan was going to set
up, there could be no mistake in the direction at all. Otherwise, even
the slightest degree of deviation in the calibration could possibly
result in the result being off by countless li.
After calculating for roughly five minutes, Zhang Xuan exhaled deeply in
relief before flicking his fingers.
that he was holding with his other hand immediately flew all over the
As soon as they took their places, energy ripples began diffusing into
the surroundings, forging a rather stable folded space. However, before
it could fully take shape, it abruptly exploded.
First attempt, fail!
My strength is still insufficient.
Sensing that single attempt had taken away half of his total zhenqi,
Zhang Xuan shook his head helplessly.
There was no mistake in his setting up of the formation flags and
manipulation of energy earlier. In fact, the reason behind his failure
was not because he had made any mistake but because he was not able to
supply sufficient energy for the creation of the formation!
With his Phantasmal Space realm pinnacle cultivation, Heaven’s Path
zhenqi, and deep comprehension of space, his fighting prowess was at
least on par with Dimension Sundering realm pinnacle experts. However, it
was still insufficient for him to construct a Teleportation Formation.
While Zhang Xuan was still deliberating over what alternatives he could
use in order to resolve the lack of energy, he suddenly heard a bellow
from behind him. The next moment, Zhan shi and Elder Ge charged forward
sword flashed across the room, freeing the two of them of the Inferno
Qilin’s control. Following which, the two of them swiftly fled into the
The Inferno Qilin and the Netherworld Azure Dragon Beast had been so
focused on their master that they were caught off guard by the duo’s
abrupt movements. They had to block their attacks in a fluster, so they
failed to keep them from getting away.
In the sky, Zhan shi flicked his wrist and whipped out a token. Following
which, with a resounding voice that echoed clearly to the corners of the
Sanctum of Sages, he declared, “All elders of the Sanctum of Sages, hear
my words! Zhang Xuan and his tamed beasts have audaciously made a move
against me and Elder Ge, so I hereby declare him to be an enemy of the
Sanctum of Sages. All of you are to immediately move out and apprehend
him, and should he try to retaliate, you are permitted to take extreme
actions… even at the cost of his life!”
As the deputy sanctum head, he could be considered the face of the
Sanctum of Sages. Even if his pride could take it lying, he could not
allow the long history of the Sanctum of Sages to be besmirched in his
As soon as the decree was passed, a huge commotion broke out within the
Sanctum of Sages. Countless figures emerged in the air, easily numbering
in the tens of thousands.
Earlier, during the battle with the Inferno Qilin, Zhang Xuan had known
that things could turn out bad if people started gathering there, so he
had discreetly set up an isolation formation in the room in order to
prevent any sound from getting out. As a result of that, despite the
entire room collapsing, it had not caught anyone’s attention.
However, the decree that had just been passed had reached the ears of
every single elder and student in the Sanctum of Sages, so they swiftly
flew up in order to see what was happening.
“This is bad… Inferno Qilin, hurry up and knock him down!”
Not expecting Zhan shi to suddenly act in such a way, Zhang Xuan’s face
darkened. He hurriedly ordered the Inferno Qilin to make a move.
With a furious roar, the Inferno Qilin dashed into the sky and raised its
hoof, preparing to knock Zhan shi down back onto the ground.
Grasping the Deputy Sanctum Head Token in his hands tightly, Zhan shi
swiftly activated the power in it, and a blinding burst of light suddenly
flashed into the surroundings, seemingly communicating with a dormant
ancient power in the Sanctum of Sages.
The surrounding space suddenly seemed to have been frozen solid, such
that even the Inferno Qilin ended up freezing in place, unable to move in
“Guardian Formation?” Zhang Xuan narrowed his eyes.
The Sanctum of Sages had declined considerably over the years. The lack
of a legitimate sanctum head had resulted in its inability to draw in and
retain talents, resulting in an endless spiral of weakness. As a result,
even the strongest expert within its ranks at the moment was only at
Saint 9-dan primary stage.
However, this had not always been the case. There was a period of time
when the Sanctum of Sages had stood at the very peak of the Master
Teacher Continent, second only to the Master Teacher Pavilion
After all, every single true sanctum head had possessed the Eye of
Insight and was an expert that had exceeded Saint 9-dan, reaching a realm
unthinkable to most. Even the First Elder would amount to nothing much
before their eyes!
The Guardian Formation that they had left behind was the ultimate trump
card of the Sanctum of Sages. Even if the Zhang Clan dispatched all of
its forces over, it was questionable whether they would be able to breach
it or not, let alone a mere Inferno Qilin!
reason that the Sanctum of Sages had been able to remain standing even
after all these years, retaining its prestige. Otherwise, given the
weakness of the current deputy sanctum head, they would have been
destroyed by the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe long ago!
Sensing the despairing power of the formation, the Inferno Qilin
anxiously sent a telepathic message over to Zhang Xuan. “Master, I’m
unable to breach this formation! At this rate, we might all lose our
While the formation was trapping the Inferno Qilin, the other elders of
the Sanctum of Sages also made their way over, and they swiftly took
their positions behind Zhan shi.
“Zhang Xuan, surrender now or die,” Zhan shi said impassively as he gazed
down upon the young man below him with utterly cold eyes.
