The unbeatable slash had nothing to do with cultivation and dao profundity, and especially not reliant on the quality of the treasure, or the sword in this case . Speed was the main and only focus .
Exceeding speed itself allowed him to break the shackles . Techniques and merit laws became useless; just one swing alone could take care of the enemies .
This paragon slash gave everyone goosebumps since it had nearly surpassed all boundaries . In a direct confrontation, even an Ascender wouldn’t think they could stop it .
“All are meaningless before understanding the creations, fortunes, and profundities of the grand dao . ” Li Qiye said plainly .
The trio all had an austere expression . Even the crown prince who had cultivated his progenitor’s arts became serious with a touch of confusion .
They lost all confidence after seeing that slash . There was no sure way of stopping it, and failure also meant death .
“Leave, I won’t repeat this again, the next slash will kill . ” Li Qiye casually stated .
All eyes turned towards the trio of top geniuses in Myriad . They were qualified to become True Emperors, but a choice must be made right now . Either to give up or to die .
They glanced at each other, unwilling to spare Conqueror just like that . After all, he was a fish on the platter now . A chance like this might not present itself again in the future .
Worst of all, they were famous experts . Calling themselves unbeatable might be too much, but they were still the top existences of the young generation . If they were to concede to Li Qiye’s threat just now before everyone, their reputation would go down the drain - something quite hard to swallow .
After all, it was humiliating for successors and even leaders of a system to be treated like this .
Eventually, Sword Sovereign coldly said: “There is always tomorrow . ”
He had the urge to back off since he wasn’t sure of receiving an attack from Li Qiye without suffering damage . He didn’t wish to die in this place before enjoying his life as the leader of Sword Grave .
There would be other chances at taking Conqueror down as long as they were alive .
“Brother Conqueror, consider yourself lucky today . It won’t happen again in the future . ” Coiling Dragon also begrudgingly backed off .
The crown prince glared at Li Qiye before leaping forward and disappearing into the horizon .
Sword Sovereign returned his sword to its scabbard and scowled at Conqueror . He didn’t wish to linger around and returned back to his peak .
Uttering some strong rhetoric was useless at this moment . It couldn’t reverse the tide so keeping quiet was the better course of action . This meant that Conqueror was saved .
Most didn’t find this surprising because Li Qiye’s slash was horrifically strong . This person was unfathomable . Opposing him right now was quite unwise . Nevertheless, a few still found this strange because these geniuses have been unstoppable . Older True Gods still needed to be polite towards them, not to mention their powerful backings .
“Strong and domineering enough to be matchless among the young . ” An old expert was lost in admiration .
“Not necessarily, Young Lord Mu is still around . ” A good friend of the trio snorted and countered .
“That’s true . ” Another expert shuddered after hearing this name .
“I’ve heard about his numerous abilities and matchless talents . I’m sure he has some heaven-defying items too since he comes from above . ” One ancestor commented with a contemplative stare .
A copious number of people feared him . Powerful systems also felt the same way .
Conqueror could finally breathe easy so his wounds recovered quite a bit . He bowed towards Li Qiye and said: “Thank you for your assistance during perilous moments . I owe you my life and will pay you back in the future, Brother Li . ”
Li Qiye waved his sleeve dismissively as if it was no big deal .
Conqueror stood up and soared to the horizon . The situation here was unfavorable so he needed to leave .
The atmosphere calmed down after his departure . Though Coiling Dragon and Sword Sovereign were still around, they played nice on their respective peak and didn’t say anything .
Though they had ancestors around, this wasn’t the time for them to show off their real strength . The main goal was still Coinbeast City so saving their strength was crucial .
All eyes turned towards the distant ocean . People finally remembered why they were here .
“Faster, faster, the beast should be coming out any time now . ” An experienced ancestor claimed .
He took out a bunch of coins at the True God level and scattered them in front .
“Ancestor, why are we doing that?” A junior was perplexed .
“Don’t forget we’re in Moneyfall . It’s impossible to enter Coinbeast City without money . ” The ancestor smiled .
“Take out coins and split up for a better chance . Third Elder, you lead one group, same with you Sixth Elder . Remember, after entering the city, all disciples must obey the elders’ command . ” The ancestor warned his fellow disciples .
The elders also took out true coins and piled them up in front .
In just a short time, experts prepared and made a pile of coins; some offered more, others fewer . Of course, others preferred to just watch from a high vantage point .
“Master, what are we doing?” One disciple asked his teacher .
“The only way to enter is to ride the beast, or so I’ve heard . Brute strength is impossible . ” The master said: “An ancestor told me that we just need to present our coins . The beasts will pick the coins; the stronger ones will require more . ”
“How are they different?” The disciple asked for elaboration .
“I’m not sure, but that ancestor told me that the powerful beasts can take you deeper into the city, so better chance at good eggs and dao bones . Of course, it’ll be safer too, so consider this as a protection payment . ”
More and more people dropped coins down on the ground, waiting for the beasts to come .
A few ancestors went all out . Their pile of true coins was blinding, making everyone else envious and jealous .
Of course, the ones who could afford to do so were no slouches . They were either True Gods or came from powerful systems . No one dared to try and rob them .
