Paragon of Sin

Chapter 258: Grand Spirit Trials Established

hem to conceive such a plan, he had zero fear.

Because…he was going to absolutely win any challenge.

Therefore, why not fully go all out?

”In that case, how about we increase the wager? Let ’s include ten eighth-grade Spatial Spirit Pills, ten Soul-Spirit Pills, and an Astral Ocean Pill? ” An Astral Ocean Pill was an eighth-grade, high-tier pill that was the enhanced version of an Astral Sea Pill. It was about a hundred times more effective with the equivalent amount of time to refine. Furthermore, it was said that only Soul Idols can safely consume the pill.

In a way, a single Astral Ocean Pill was equivalent to a full planet in terms of value. It was outrageously difficult and hadn ’t been seen in three hundred years, the last person to concoct it was Qingye Yun, the Grand Association Master of the Alchemist Association. He had used it to solidify his reputation as one of the top three Alchemic Emperors of this generation.

Even Tuo Bihan wasn ’t at the very top, likely within the top five.

”What?! T-ten?! ” Lin Ruyan, the Pavilion Master of the Elemental Heaven Pavilion abruptly realized this wager was out of her depth. A single eighth-grade pill was far too much. How many did they have in storage? None! Even the Alchemist Association could only have three at most. These pills were likely saved for their utmost talents with the full hopes of becoming Realmlords.

”Hisss! ” The entire gallery took a deep inhale of cold air, their hearts shivering. In their eyes, minds, and hearts, whoever lost would be forced to abide by the request. There was no logical way for them to pay up.

Wei Wuyin was incredibly ruthless, adding: ”Furthermore, let ’s make all the upper-echelon members of our respective forces swear the Spirit Oath. That way, our wager is certain to be upheld. ”

Qingye Yun ’s eyes bulged out uncontrollably, his heart trembling without end. He sent his spiritual sense downwards, trying to see if any of those geniuses had talent beyond his intelligence report. But when it came back the same, he wasn ’t certain if Wei Wuyin was trying to humiliate him with scare tactics or if it was a legitimate trap. He held in his desire to audibly gulp before the crowd, his mouth quite dry. Such a debt was unable to be paid for in a year.

It was unable to be paid for in a century.

He couldn ’t help but rethink his plans.

”Do you need time to think? How about this, since this is a sudden trial, we ’ll let you guys have a few months to prepare your talents. We can make it rather inclusive, allowing you to bring forth all your geniuses to participate. ” Wei Wuyin seemed to be giving them a lifeline to grasp, but his calm smile and his handsome-to-zenith face made it seem like charity.

But charity? Qingye Yun ’s eyes brightened. Clearly, he seemed to grasp some things, and he felt more confident. A few months? In a few months, it was absolutely certain that they could produce a certain winner! They merely had to pick one promising talent to nurture with all they had.

If they did so, it would be impossible for them to lose! His eyes grew even brighter as confidence once more was regained in his heart. He completely believed that Wei Wuyin ’s arrogance had led to his certain defeat.

”Haha, a few months? You ’re right, such a large bet should be prepared for fully by both parties. How about we use the same rules, up the difficulty slightly, and hold the trial in six months? We ’ll bring every last one of our talents to participate. ” Qingye Yun spoke, causing the elders behind him to start. But after a brief moment, they completely understood his intentions.

With six months, they could forcefully produce an expert at the Fourth Stage of the Astral Core Realm beneath three hundred years old! Even if they couldn ’t, their foundation and strength would be thoroughly enhanced to their utmost limits. They would, temporarily, be invincible within their age group. Their victory would be inevitable.

Already seeing victory in their grasp, their eyes shone, but they hurriedly hid it from others. If they wanted these morons to fall for their trap, then they needed to play the role!

Wei Wuyin ’s expression changed by a minute amount, his handsome face twisted slightly. This only lasted for a moment, concealing it swiftly, but it was noticed by all these elite experts. Lin Ruyan was also interested, her eyes brightened as confidence once more suffused her aura and blue eyes.

Wei Wuyin said, ”Six Months? ” He turned to Tuo Bihan and the other Grand Imperial Sages, his eyes flashing with uncertainty. Qin Rui and Ji Changkong had quickly grasped the Alchemist Association ’s intentions and wanted to hurriedly advise him to reduce the time or decline outright.

But Tuo Bihan spoke abruptly to Wei Wuhin, ”Did you figure out a solution to your problem? ”

Wei Wuyin faintly smiled and nodded. This old man truly understood his heart.

Tuo Bihan calmly said, ”We agree. In six months, the Monarch, no, Grand Spirit Trials will take place. Are you ready to swear to the Spirit Oath or will you decline? ” Seeing Tuo Bihan ’s expression, the others didn ’t think he had confidence but merely was making a last-ditch effort to have them refuse. Qingye Yun ’s confidence was built on a thousand years of experience and certainty in his Association ’s strength, how could he possibly decline?

Even if they bet a thousand times the amount, he wouldn ’t refuse!

”We ’ll leave the request to be unknown until the victor was known. Of course, no request that would force one to hurt or kill themselves or others would be made. ” While this was a small thing, it was what most people were scared of. If they were forced to kill themselves, they would have no recourse. It was either death or death.

Wei Wuyin nodded, ”Then, let ’s swear this oath. ”

At that very moment, the Alchemist Association hadn ’t realized it yet, but they were no longer capable of escaping from Wei Wuyin ’s palm.
