Unbeknownst to them, two hours had passed!
A loud muffled sound rang in everyone’s ears, immediately followed by a burst of cheering from the Eldest Prince’s team.
At that moment, something was flashing and blazing bright in the furnace!
“It’s finally done! Master Du truly lives up to his name!”
“He created a six-star magical weapon in two hours’ time!”
“Your Royal Highness, please allow me to use this six-star magical weapon to fight against the ancient armored puppets!” beseeched a strong Original Infant cultivator.
The Eldest Prince nodded his head, beaming with joy. “Good, your request is granted. Master Du, do rest for a while before you forge the next magical weapon!”
“No need, with my Soul Strength, I can forge another two magical weapons without resting!” replied Master Du. He picked up some raw materials and began to forge another magical weapon!
The cultivator, who volunteered to battle against the puppets, took the six-star magical weapon and rushed excitedly to fight against the puppets.
The cultivator fought fiercely against the puppets for over ten rounds.
And finally, with an explosion, he managed to smash an ancient armored puppet!
In the burial chamber, the members of the Eldest Prince’s team were cheering loudly with high morale!
Outside the tombs, the audience watching the scene through the Heaven and Earth Mirror were excited as well.
“Although six-star weapons are very strong, taking out a puppet in just over ten rounds also means that the elite fighting against the puppet is rather powerful too!”
“The Eldest Prince has earned one point now!”
“Look at the ranking charts, the name of the Eldest Prince has appeared and is currently in the lead now!”
“Eh, wait, look! The masters of the other princes’ teams are completing their weapon forging as well!”
Inside the burial chamber, the weapon forging masters beside the Second Prince, Third Prince and the Eighth Prince had entered the final stage of the forging process!
Beads of perspiration formed on their foreheads as they pushed themselves to perform better and faster for the contest!
The process was smooth; every master successfully completed their first six-star magical weapon as the furnaces inside the burial chamber shone brightly for an instant!
The princes cheered in excitement simultaneously, and sent the strongest cultivator in their team to take on the puppets with the magical weapon!
In no time, the battle against the puppets became more intense!
With the powerful six-star weapons, the elites now possessed enough power to take down the puppets. Their speed also increased significantly!
In fact, the combat power of these puppets was not as strong as that of a cultivator. They were only strong because of their numbers; when they initiated a joint attack, it was as if their powers were stacked!
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Sounds of battling echoed about as the cultivators blasted their skill arts at the puppets. The situation seemed especially favorable so far!
The weapon forging masters did not rest either. After consuming a pill to replenish their energy, they continued to forge their second magical weapon!
Their aim was to forge as many magical weapons as possible in the shortest time before their Soul Strength was depleted!
Meanwhile, nobody had noticed that Xu Que had just finished assembling the most important parts of the Iron Man suit!
“It’s finally done!”
Xu Que heaved a long sigh of relief after assembling the Iron Man helmet. He stored it in his system inventory.
“Eh? It’s done?” asked a baffled Seventh Princess who had watched the whole assembling process but could still not comprehend what had happened.
“I only finished the initial steps,” said Xu Que casually with a smile. “Still need to wait for a while!”
As this was the first time the Arc Reactor was charging, it required a good six hours to become fully charged. Only three hours had passed at that moment.
“What are we waiting for?” asked the princess curiously.
“Wait until this thing completely light up!”
Xu Que took out the Arc Reactor. It was about the size of a palm. He showed it to the princess.
As it was still charging, the Arc Reactor was emitting a faint halo of white light with a hint of blue. It was rather lovely!
The Seventh Princess was instantly absorbed by the Arc Reactor, as her eyes grew big and wide when she saw it. “Young Master Xu, what is this thing?” asked the curious princess.
“This treasure was created by Tony Stark from my Exploding Heavens Faction. It is called the Arc Reactor. It’s a very powerful item for acting tough!”
Xu Que gave a laugh as he held the Arc Reactor in his palm, then jumped off the table!
The Seventh Princess could not understand what exactly an Arc Reactor was. She was like a clueless child, nodding her head and continuing to check out the Arc Reactor.
Outside the Imperial Tombs, many people frowned when they saw that scene.
“What is he trying to do?”
“What’s that glowing thing in his hand?”
“I think I heard him say that it’s called an Arc Reactor!”
“Heheh, it’s so tiny, what can it do?”
“Exactly, just look at the mighty furnaces of the other masters! And look at his Arc whatever Reactor? It simply looks like a child’s toy!”
“Oh no, our naïve Seventh Princess seems to have believed in his lies!”
“We should send in people to warn the Seventh Princess not to be taken in by that rascal. That boy is just fooling around!”
Many people started to get anxious. They couldn’t bear to see the Seventh Princess getting scammed by Xu Que!
However, there were also people who were rather calm about this!
For example, the Metal Emperor, whose eyes were shining brightly, did not say a word!
The old eunuch beside him, on the contrary, felt somewhat disturbed with the comments made by the crowd. “Your Majesty…” The eunuch leaned over to the Emperor. “Should this old servant send someone in…?”
“No need for that!” the Metal Emperor shook his head, interrupting the old eunuch before he could finish.
Next, the Metal Emperor narrowed his eyes. “Since this is a contest,” he said indifferently, “just leave them be!”
“But… this old servant is worried that Xu Que might spell trouble for the Seventh Princess!”
“It’ll be fine. I’ve observed the thing that the young man is holding. It’s very ordinary; it did not have the slightest flow of spiritual Qi so it should be safe. Lil’ Seven is such a clever child. She’s just curious, there’s no need for worry!”
“Yes! This old servant understands now!” the old eunuch replied politely and returned to his original position.
The Metal Emperor fell silent with slightly hesitant look. His lips moved slightly as he looked towards a divine chariot not too far away. “Mother, I’ve closely watched the thing that the young man held, and did not find anything extraordinary about it. Did you find anything of concern?” The Emperor used his Soul Strength to communicate to the mind of the Empress Dowager.
“I did not notice anything special either,” she replied indifferently. “This young man speaks with strange terms, has strange mannerisms and his behavior is pompous. That item might simply be something to impress people and get everyone’s attention! But that’s all there is to it.”
“If that’s the case… I’m relieved!” The words of the Empress Dowager set the Emperor’s mind at rest.
Inside her divine chariot, after ending the short conversation with the Emperor, the Empress Dowager continued looking at Xu Que via the Heaven and Earth Mirror.
After a while, her lips curled up in contempt. “And I thought this young man was extraordinary. Seems like he’s only good at controlling divine chariots. Alas, there’s nothing more to him!”
