They would not be in such a miserable situation like they had encountered their natural foe if they had stumbled into someone else.
But, who was Qin Nan?
He was the reincarnation of the son of one of the four Supreme Highnesses!
Besides, he was considered one of the Ten Great Exceptional Geniuses by the Nine Palace Golden Immortal Sect before he became a Nine Heavens Supreme. He had practiced twelve Arts of Dao Seeking and possessed the soul of the Fifth Immortal!
Putting aside Qin Nan's terrifying background, even his strength significantly outmatched theirs.
Based on what they knew, even if Qin Nan was only in the early stage of the Nine Heavens Supreme Realm, an Exceptional Genius like him would most likely possess the strength of a Nine Heavens Supreme in the Greater Success Stage. They would not stand a chance against him.
The woman from the Tribe of Immortal Spirits already received the latest order from the clan. It clearly warned those who were not peak Nine Heavens Supremes or without five Nine Heavens Supremes in the Greater Success Stage not to fight Qin Nan!
"Trying to run away?"
Qin Nan thoroughly unleashed his aura. The sky and the ground shook vigorously.
He grabbed forward, unleashing a boundless supreme force forward. It formed a peerless cage trapping the three cultivators.
"Past Neglecting Art of Destruction!"
"Rolling Flames of the Heavens!"
After all, the three were Nine Heavens Supremes. They would not be defeated so easily. Even though they were taken by surprise, they quickly collected their thoughts and performed hand seals to execute their arts and shatter the supreme force around them.
"Dao-Melting Immortal Flames!"
However, before they could break free from the cage, white flames spread rapidly like an ocean and devoured them.
The eyes of the three Nine Heavens Supremes widened. They immediately took out their trump cards by using the power of talismans and ancient artifacts.
As the flames poured down, three blinding lights stood amid them firmly.
However, a chill ran down their spines when they saw Qin Nan showing up nearby within the blink of an eye. He was holding an ancient saber while staring at them calmly.
"I didn't think I would stumble into the famous Qin Nan here," the woman of the Tribe of Immortal Spirits took a deep breath.
She calmed her thoughts and said, "I will give up on the Tree of Five Mysteries. I'm too blind to recognize you just then. Pardon me for misbehaving. I shall give you a treasure map to make up for it. I hope Cultivator Qin Nan will let me off the hook this time."
The other two young men nodded too. They promised to give Qin Nan benefits to apologize to him. They had lost their previous overbearing demeanor.
Qin Nan stared at them in silence.
The look in the woman's eyes dimmed, "Cultivator Qin Nan, there's no personal grudge between us. Why must we fight one another to death? If you insist to keep fighting, even though your cultivation is far superior, it will cause you trouble still..."
Qin Nan interrupted before she could finish, "I'm not a devil who kills every person I stumble into. Don't you worry. However, how did you recognize me instantly even though we have never met before?"
The woman immediately answered, "You might not know this, but a few days ago, many factions have been spreading the news about your arrival and your portrait through their disciples who had recently entered the Dao Seeking Land."
"I believe most cultivators in the Dao Seeking Land would know who you are."
Qin Nan's eyes flickered coldly.
Even though it was within his expectations, he was still displeased that the factions were putting a lot of pressure on him.
"So that means the Tribe of Immortal Spirits and the Nongyan Tribe have already given the orders to kill me at all costs, right?" Qin Nan asked.
The woman and the young man of the Nongyan Tribe felt their hearts skipping a beat. Various thoughts crossed the former's mind. She quickly said with a wry smile, "Cultivator Qin Nan, to be honest with you, we did receive an order like that, but you are too strong for me to handle. Even though I must obey my clan's order, I won't try to get myself killed either."
Qin Nan said with a smile, "Fine, I just came here, so there are many things I still don't know about the Dao Seeking Land. You may leave after telling me the things I should know."
The woman and the two young men let out a relieved sigh.
"It has been eight years since the Dao Seeking Land's exit was last opened, which means the exit will open again in another two years."
"After all these years, the Dao Seeking Land is like a Nine Heavens Immortal Realm that had shrunk countless times in size. The seven Heaven Highness Clans, Mumen Sect, Shidao Tribe, the Supreme Daoism factions, and the Peerless Rulers and Nine Heavens Supremes of various ancient tribes have established their own factions here."
"The only difference is, they have all established their factions on the Heaven-Reaching Dao Tree!" the woman said.
"The Heaven-Reaching Dao Tree?"
Qin Nan's eyes flickered curiously.
"The tree is located in the southernmost part of the Dao Seeking Land. Its origin remains a mystery until today. Rumors say it's the transfiguration of the Great Dao, but no one has been able to prove it."
"The tree possesses terrifying strength. No Nine Heavens Supreme can inflict any damage on it."
"On top of it, the tree will blossom once every thirty years and bear five Heaven-Reaching Dao Fruits. Those who refine it will be able to achieve the Master Realm!"
"It has been twenty-five years since it last bore the Heaven-Reaching Dao Fruits, meaning that it will blossom in another five years," the other two young men explained.
Qin Nan's eyes were filled with astonishment.
The Heaven-Reaching Dao Tree sounded rather extraordinary.
"There's one more thing. I believe Cultivator Qin Nan has already noticed that the auras here don't belong to the Nine Heavens Immortal Realm."
"If you stay here for too long, the auras will influence your cultivation in a bad way regardless of how strong your cultivation is. Therefore, the Peerless Rulers and Nine Heavens Supremes of many factions will observe the Notional Diagram of the Heaven-Reaching Dao Tree when they came to the Dao Seeking Land."
"I happened to have an extra diagram with me. Feel free to take it."
The woman took out an immortal jade from her storage bag. It had a mystical glow.
"Cultivator Qin Nan, here is the map of the Dao Seeking Land. It has some markings on it. The Nine Palace Golden Immortal Sect also set up a huge bet with information on the peak Nine Heavens Supremes. I believe you will find it fascinating."
The other two young men quickly took out two immortal jades too.
