Library of Heaven's Path - chapter-1486
this was the very first time that a student had laid their hands on the
deputy sanctum head, as well as the first time that someone had utterly
destroyed the Sanctum Head Hall.
If something like that could be pardoned easily, how would the deputy
sanctum head and the elders keep students in line in the future?
“Zhang shi, what do we do now?” Seeing the huge array of elders and
students floating above them and the Guardian Formation sealing the space
around them, Chen Leyao’s face paled in fright as she trembled
Even though she had been through many battles as a genius of the Glacier
Plain Court, this was her first time facing something as huge as this!
To stand singlehandedly against the entire Sanctum of Sages, this was
unprecedented in history!
“What else can we do? Once we are caught, it will be impossible for us to
save Zhao Ya!” Zhang Xuan shook his head.
The situation with Zhao Ya was far more urgent, so he could not afford to
waste any time there. Not to mention, just by looking at the faces of
Zhan shi and the others, it was apparent that he would be done in for
good if he was captured.
Thus, he could not surrender. Otherwise, there would be no second chance
Until he had met all three conditions, he could not show the Sanctum Head
Token to the others, or else it would be considered forfeiting his right
to succession. This was the rule that Sage Kui had imposed to ensure that
each generation of sanctum head truly possessed the capability to lead
the Sanctum of Sages to greater heights.
As such, it seemed like he had no choice but to fight it out.
Xuan turned his gaze to the already activated Guardian Formation and
uttered softly, “Flaws!”
Following which, a book materialized in the Library of Heaven’s Path.
Tapping on it lightly, the knowledge within it swiftly flowed into his
“Heaven Weaving Formation, grade-9 pinnacle formation… Truly
The Guardian Formation of the Sanctum of Sages had been left behind by
Sage Kui, and it had been enhanced by many sanctum heads over the years.
Every single generation of true sanctum head possessed the Eye of
Insight, which allowed them to easily pick out flaws and resolve them.
After many millenniums of improvement, the formation could already be
considered as the crystallization of the wisdom of the top experts of the
Master Teacher Continent. Of course, it still could not be considered
flawless in the eyes of the absolute Library of Heaven’s Path yet, but it
was very close to that.
Zhang Xuan’s eyebrows shot up. Only seven flaws. This must be the fewest
flaws I’ve seen among higher grade formations…
But no matter how few flaws were in the Guardian Formation, that did not
make the slightest difference to what Zhang Xuan was about to do.
“Inferno Qilin and Netherworld Azure Dragon Beast, I’ll be counting on
the two of you to defend against the lot of them and break this
formation. I need to continue studying the Teleportation Formation!”
Exhaling deeply, Zhang Xuan sent the information regarding the flaws of
the Heaven Weaving Formation over to the two saint beasts via their
Upon receiving the message, the two saint beasts roared furiously.
that that their master possessed extraordinary eyes at seeing things
despite his young age, but who would have thought that he would actually
be able to find so many flaws in a formation that was completely
unfathomable to them?
Alone, these flaws might not amount to much, but when put together, they
were confident that they would be able to shake its foundations.
On the other hand, seeing that Zhang Xuan was still busy examining the
formation flags despite the warning that he had issued, Zhan shi narrowed
his eyes threateningly. “Zhang Xuan, I acknowledge the strength of your
tamed beasts, but before the Guardian Formation, they are nothing at all.
I advise you take a good look at your current circumstances before making
But before he could finish his words, the Inferno Qilin abruptly broke
free of its restraints, and with a deafening bellow, it thrust its
massive hoof in a certain direction.
At the same time, the Netherworld Azure Dragon Beast glided along the
ground as it dashed right into a certain building not too far away.
The core reason behind the strength of the Guardian Formation lay in the
fortuitous aura that the Sanctum of Sages had accumulated over the many
years, as well as the spiritual energy that had gathered in the area
through the earth veins below.
The Inferno Qilin struck at one of the center points of the formation
whereas the Netherworld Azure Dagon Beast crashed right into a spot where
the spiritual energy drawn in through the earth veins accumulated,
causing the spiritual energy to dissipate into the surroundings
With two critical strikes on its vitals, the incredibly powerful Heaven
Weaving Formation swiftly deflated as if a balloon leaking air, losing
the imposing might that it had commanded just a moment ago.
frozen the surroundings earlier spurted out, falling right upon Zhan shi
and the others.
“This… this is impossible!” Zhan shi uttered with his eyes widened in
In the past several millenniums, the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe had
attempted to attack the Sanctum of Sages thirteen times, but each and
every single time, they had ended up fleeing without achieving anything.
While it would be too much of an exaggeration to say that the Heaven
Weaving Formation was unbreachable, still, there were few experts in the
world who were capable of overcoming it!
And yet, those two saint beasts actually deciphered it so easily. How in
the world did they manage to do it?
“Stop them!” Knowing that there was no use getting nervous, the person in
the air flicked his wrist and thrust his palm downward.
Saint pinnacle battle technique, River Flipping Palm!
This was a move created by the Fourth Sanctum Head. It was a strike that
descended from the heavens, wielding strength far beyond one’s
imagination. Augmented by the fortuitous energy that was billowing out
from the ground, this technique could strike down even a Saint 9-dan
intermediate stage cultivator in a single blow.
Unfortunately, his opponent was no Saint 9-dan intermediate stage
cultivator but the Inferno Qilin.
Paying completely no heed to the palm, the inferno Qilin simply charged
right into it, as if it was no threat at all.
Inferno Qilin’s head, but as if striking a Saint pinnacle artifact, it
simply jolted Zhan shi’s palm numb. The next moment, its head crashed
right into Zhan shi’s chest, forcefully pushing him away.
Zhan shi’s figure was sent flying, surging into the distance as if a
Not expecting the Inferno Qilin to be so powerful, Elder Ge and the
others hurriedly put their might together and charged forward to suppress
In response to their aggression, the Inferno Qilin roared furiously, and
in the blink of an eye, its figure had already expanded to roughly forty
meters tall. With this towering physique, it rammed right toward the
group of elders.
Elder Ge and the other elders were simultaneously knocked flying, and
their brows and hair were charred black.
What was truly fearsome about the Inferno Qilin was not its hooves or
tail but its body!
the Qilin Flames, its body had grown to become as strong as a Saint
pinnacle artifact. Its ram would render even a Saint 9-dan cultivator
powerless, let alone those elders.
“Is that really Zhang shi’s tamed beast?”
“How could it be so powerful?”
“To outright defy and even utilize violence against the deputy sanctum
head and the elders, does Zhang shi intend to betray the Master Teacher
The students that had gathered around to spectate the sight were all
flabbergasted by what they were seeing.
In their eyes, the deputy sanctum head, Elder Ge, and the others were
figures far out of their league, perhaps invincible even! Seeing these
figures standing completely helpless before a saint beast was something
that they never could have dreamed off, and it seemed to shatter all of
their previous notions of greatness of these elders.
But more important than that, to make a move against the elders of the
Sanctum of Sages could already be considered an act of defiance against
the authority of the Master Teacher Pavilion. No matter what, the Sanctum
of Sages was still a subsidiary of the Master Teacher Pavilion and was
protected by it. Did Zhang Xuan no longer want to remain as a master
“Damn it, damn it!”
While spurting large mouthfuls of blood, Zhan shi flew back to the
Sanctum of Sages from the distance, and before reaching the area, he
bellowed furiously, “Elders of the Sanctum of Sages, heed my command!
Form the Formations of the Sages and subdue the Inferno Qilin together!”
Seeing how the Guardian Formation had been destroyed and the elders were
falling from the sky one after another, Zhan shi could not take it any
Zhang Xuan, the entire Sanctum of Sages would become a joke! As the
deputy sanctum head, he could not allow the legacy of the organization to
be destroyed under his leadership!
“Yes!” the elders replied resoundingly.
Following which, they swiftly scattered around to get into their
positions. Putting their strength together, they formed something that
resembled a fish net in the air.
“It’s the Formation of the Sages…”
Chen Leyao’s face paled in fright as she hurriedly turned to the young
man before her, who was still busy trying to figure out how to make the
Teleportation Formation work.
“Zhang shi, this isn’t good. Run!”
