After all, with their current cultivation level, they could only head to the arena in the east. Ghaylen nodded before leading Kai’s group toward the east.
On their way there, they encountered numerous cultivators at First to Third Level Body Fusion Realm rushing toward the arena. All of them seemed bright in the eyes as they chatted away loudly.
“The Archaic Body cultivator yesterday was impressive! He won nine consecutive rounds, and I heard that he won tens of millions of spirit coins!”
“That mighty man was incredible. He’s a cultivator at Third Level Body Fusion Realm, but he defeated a cultivator at Fourth Level Body Fusion Realm! I’d say he’s going to be the champion of the competition.”
“I heard that the stakes today have reached fifty million, and there are even countless spiritual stones and herbs! Now, all they need are people daring enough to take on the challenge.”
“I heard that this Archaic Body cultivator came from the most northern land and has crossed thousands of miles to get here. I wonder if the people from his land are all like him.”
The cultivators were chatting about the competition the day before as they headed toward the arena. Kai beamed as he listened to them.
“Mr. Samoll, maybe we’ll be able to change a place to rest in Jipsdale soon,” Kai said with a laugh. With fifty million spirit coins and countless spiritual stones and herbs, they would have no issues buying a luxurious estate here in Jipsdale.
Furthermore, the opponent was merely a cultivator at Third Level Body Fusion Realm. Although Kai was a cultivator at Second Level Body Fusion Realm, defeating that man would be as easy as defeating a child.
It mattered not whether the man was trained in Body Cultivation or Energy Cultivation, for no one could withstand a smack from Kai.
“I doubt anyone will dare to get into the arena once you step in,” Ghaylen said with a smile. Soon, they reached the arena, but the arena was blocked off, save for a spot to enter and exit. Kai was slightly taken aback by that, but Ghaylen had already fished out some spirit coins for the guard by the entrance. Only when the guard saw the spirit coins did he let Kai’s group in.
“Mr. Chance, you have to pay a fee to get in,” Ghaylen said. Raking his gaze over the huge crowd in the arena, Kai figured that the owner of the arena must earn a lot from the sales of the entrance fees alone.
At that moment, Kai became even more impressed with the count of Jipsdale’s business acumen. Kai’s group squeezed to the edge of the arena before raising their heads to look at the scene.
An indefinite amount of spiritual stones and herbs were placed at the side of the arena, along with fifty million spirit coins. Those were the stakes of the day.
A tall and bulky cultivator at Third Level Body Fusion Realm dressed in pelt with an axe in his hand appeared in the arena. There was something wild and unruly about the cultivator, and the aura he emanated was powerful.
Kai noticed that there was something different about the man’s aura from the other cultivators. He seemed to have a hint of beast. race aura on him, but it was faint. The human part of his aura was stronger.
“I can’t believe Archaic Body cultivators actually exist in Ethereal Realm,” Yuven said in surprise as he stared at the muscular man in the arena.
“What’s the matter? Do you know them? Their auras feel different from the other cultivators. They seem to have a trace of beast race aura in them,” Kai said to Yuven.
Yuven nodded. “Indeed, these Archaic Body cultivators have beast race blood in them. They’re originally the descendants of humans. and the beast race. I heard that their forefather was an ice bear creature.”
“But I thought you said that humans can’t have children with beast race?” Kai whipped his head toward Yuven in shock. That was what Yuven had told Ivasha, and that was what was recorded in the beast race’s ancient books as well.
“They’re different because they cultivate in Archaic Body Cultivation instead of Energy Cultivation. Spiritual energy is used as the source of power for most, so the merging of human blood and beast race blood has few negative effects on them. There are few of them around, and I thought they had all died,” Yuven said.
