True Martial World - chapter-250
The arena was buzzing with activity.
There were only a few matches happening in the arena today. Everyone who
went on stage was strong. Besides Yi Yun and Li Hong’s battle, there
was also a battle between Chu Xiaoran and a veteran cultivator ranked
within the top 2000.
“Oh? Yi Yun and Li Hong have not arrived yet?”
When the spectators arrived, they looked for traces of Yi Yun and Li
Hong, but no matter how much they searched, they could not see them.
“Their battle is going to start just before noon, so there is no need
for it to be the opening match. I guess they are still cultivating or
meditating right now…”
The spectators were secretly alarmed when they heard this.
Every minute counted. Even Li Hong, who was ranked in the top 1000, took
this battle with a rookie so seriously.
When the matches began, it started with a few rookies ranked around
5000-6000 challenging each other. Even Gu Mu, who was ranked fourth
amongst the rookies, went on stage. However, there was a lack of interest
in all these battles.
It was only when Chu Xiaoran went on stage that the audience roused
Chu Xiaoran’s opponent was a veteran cultivator who had spent four
years in the Tai Ah Divine City. Chu Xiaoran did not hold anything back.
She immediately summoned her Aspect Totem at the beginning of the battle
and she used her frost ice concepts.

The battle was very intense, there were ice particles flying everywhere!
Finally, Chu Xiaoran managed to use the move ‘Azure Blue Frost Sea,
Ephemeral Beauty’ to defeat her opponent.
But after Chu Xiaoran defeated her opponent, she was extremely drained of
her strength. It could be said that it was a tough victory.
Chu Xiaoran entered the top 2000 of the Earth roll!
People could see that it would be tough for Chu Xiaoran to win her next
She still had another match she could fight, but she would at best reach
the 1900 mark. It was impossible for her to go any further.
Chu Xiaoran, who was considered to be similar to Yi Yun, had found her
bottleneck at 1900, but Yi Yun had challenged Li Hong who was ranked
around 1000. He was mad enough!
“Oh? Yi Yun! Yi Yun is here!” Someone in the crowd shouted.
People glanced over and they saw a teenager dressed in linen clothes
entering the arena. He strolled directly to his seat and sat down. Then,
he closed his eyes and started to regulate his breathing!

Many people were impressed that Yi Yun was still as calm and at complete
leisure even when he had a big battle with a large stake coming up.
Seeing Yi Yun’s calm appearance, Chu Xiaoran’s brows moved slightly,
“Could it be…that he was still holding back during his battle against
Chu Xiaoran also paid a lot of attention on this match. She wanted to see
what sort of strength Yi Yun, the number one rookie, had.
Time began to pass and Li Hong still did not appear. Only at noon, as the
time for the match to begin approached, did Li Hong finally appear at the
entrance of the arena with a long staff behind his back.
He strode into the arena with precise strides. His aura grew larger as he
walked towards the stage.
After seeing Li Hong, many felt that Li Hong was different in some way.
Although many in the audience had not opened their Heaven’s Eye, they
could feel Li Hong’s aura. He was like a towering mountain. Not only
was it pressuring, it was also oppressive!
Li Hong walked straight up onto the Divine Wilderness Stage without a
word. He did not even wait for the referee to call out his name.

“Yi Yun! Get up here!” Li Hong shouted loudly. His voice echoed like
thunder throughout the entire arena.
The cultivators in the arena held their breaths. His aura was too strong!
Just to face someone like this needed a lot of courage.
People could guess that because Li Hong appeared so late, he must have
had some kind of breakthrough.
Many people started to worry for Yi Yun. Li Hong was originally very
strong, but if he had taken Yi Yun lightly, Yi Yun might still have a
small chance for victory.
But Li Hong had been cultivating through the night and he was apparently
going to go all out.
If he really had another breakthrough, then everything would be
different. This battle involved extremely high stakes. If they were in Yi
Yun’s position, they would be absolutely nervous.
Everyone’s gaze landed on Yi Yun. At this moment, there was no need for
the referee to announce it. Yi Yun and Li Hong’s match was about to
Yi Yun walked up onto the Divine Wilderness Stage. He unsheathed his
Thousand Army Saber and then, he pointed the saber tip at the ground.
There were thirty meters between the two of them.
Li Hong pulled out his long staff and held it parallel to the ground. The
staff was six feet long and there were golden loops on the ends of the
staff that were made of metal forged from Tai Cang essence. And on the
golden loops, there were half-inch long spikes!
Do not assume that a metal staff’s attack power was weaker than any
other weapon. It depended on who was using the metal staff. In Li
Hong’s hands, he could cause serious injuries with a casual swing of
the staff. If he were to forcefully smash it down, he could cause all the
bones in a person to fracture!
“Yi Yun, I know you are very strong, and you even have hidden strength!
But today, no matter what hidden cards you have, it will be useless
against me!” As Li Hong said this, his fighting spirit flared up. A
golden sheen covered Li Hong’s body!
“I have experienced endless slaughters in the Divine wilderness’
desolate lands for an entire year. I have killed countless numbers of
desolate beasts! A herb-picking kid like you has only picked a few herbs
and you have never gone through big battles. You still think you can be
my match? Today, I will let you know why I am ranked around the top 1000
of the Earth roll!”
With a shout, the golden sheen around Li Hong’s body formed patches of
small scales, which covered his entire body.
‘Heaven Opening Technique’ Someone in the audience cried out.
In the Tai Ah Divine City, besides the ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’,
which was no doubt the best cultivation technique, there were other
top-grade cultivation techniques. Even though they were not quite as good
as the ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’, they were still very powerful.
This ‘Heaven Opening Technique’ was one of the top three cultivation
techniques in the Tai Ah Divine City. By cultivating the ‘Heaven
Opening Technique’, one would gain the ‘Heaven Opening Real Qi’.
Many geniuses could not afford the ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’, and
they tried to cultivate the ‘Heaven Opening Technique’ instead but
they could not condense the ‘Heaven Opening Real Qi’.

This cultivation technique was also very difficult to cultivate.
“By using the ‘Heaven Opening Real Qi’ to protect his body, Li
Hong’s ‘Heaven Opening Technique’ has already reached the second
The small scales on Li Hong’s body surface were formed from the
‘Heaven Opening Real Qi’. This was similar to Qiuniu’s armor
defense, but it had no weight and it allowed Li Hong to move freely.
With the long staff in hand, Li Hong suddenly constricted his pupils and
Li Hong moved like a gust of wind and appeared in front of Yi Yun nearly
instantly. He swung the staff downwards heavily!
Due to his extreme speed, Li Hong’s staff had turned into a line, it
was as if it was a whip that swung at Yi Yun!
Yi Yun retreated backwards and with a blur of his figure, a dozen
after-images appeared. Li Hong smashed his staff towards Yi Yun’s chest.

One of Yi Yun’s after-images was torn apart and the staff landed
heavily on the stage. The purple tungsten tiles sunk in deeply from Li
Hong’s attack. At this moment, Yi Yun appeared behind Li Hong and sent
the Thousand Army Saber slashing down!
With a change of expression, Li Hong did not dodge. The yellow scales on
his back suddenly expanded and they formed a giant shield!
Yi Yun’s saber collided with Li Hong’s shield. The blade quickly
found itself unable to move an inch further when it struck the shield!
“Oh? This is!?”
Yi Yun was alarmed. There was nothing behind Li Hong, but in a hundredth
of a blink of an eye, a huge shield had condensed out of thin air,
blocking his attack.
Not only that, the shield was extremely dense and it had a strong
squeezing force. It had even trapped the Thousand Army Saber. It made Yi
Yun feel like he could not pull it out. It was similar to the feeling
back when Qiuniu grabbed his saber!
Li Hong suddenly turned around and smashed his staff towards Yi Yun’s
waist. At this moment, the Thousand Army Saber was still lodged in the
This staff attack was so powerful that a typical Purple Blood warrior
would have been split in two!
“Saber Truth – Pressing Forward With Indomitable Will!”
Yi Yun’s eyes flashed as he injected Yuan Qi into the Thousand Army
Saber. With a whistling sound, the Thousand Army Saber dislodged itself
from the shield as Yi Yun retreated hastily. At the same time, he bent
his body backwards and formed a bridge with his arced body. Li Hong’s
staff swung past Yi Yun’s nose tip!
Yi Yun could still feel the pain of the staff breaking through his
protective Yuan Qi.
With a leap, Yi Yun’s body flew upwards and retreated thirty meters,
pulling away from Li Hong.
Li Hong’s back shield also slowly closed in on itself, turning into a
small scale once again, covering Li Hong’s body.
Li Hong grinned at Yi Yun, “You dodged pretty quickly!”

“This cultivation technique…” Yi Yun was very startled. There was
actually Yuan Qi that could be used so freely. It could form a shield
above any part of one’s body to block an enemy’s attack.
This is the “Heaven Opening Real Qi”?
Of course, as a cultivation technique that ranked among the top in the
Tai Ah Divine City, it would not be weak. The ‘Heaven Opening
Technique’ also had other miraculous uses. The top cultivation
techniques in the Tai Ah Divine City were much stronger than family
secret techniques like the ‘Star Picking Hand’!
“Yi Yun…The attack just now could not even break through a fifth of
my defense! Your saber may have pierced Qiuniu’s armor, but my defense
is on a completely different level from Qiuniu’s. If you think you can
break my defenses, that would be absurd thinking! I know you have even
more powerful saber moves. Use it, or you will not have the chance.”
Li Hong had an oppressive momentum.
The earth yellow real Qi on his body became more turbulent.
“This defense sure is ridiculous.”
In the audience stands, the rookies held their breaths. Qiuniu’s battle
strategy was already very impressive to them. But compared to Li Hong, he
was still far from him.
Qiuniu relied on his armor for defense, while Li Hong relied on a top
cultivation technique. This defense method revealed the disparity in the

Not only that, Li Hong was just a shy of breaking through to the Yuan
foundation realm. His Yuan Qi quantity was something Qiuniu could not
Without any question, Qiuniu would lose to Li Hong in an instant!
