Stefan smiled and continued, “The third stage is even harder, needing you to kill two illusions with the first stage of lower ultimate god-rank techniques and three with upper earth-rank techniques.”
He then put up two fingers and said, “The second stage is more than twice as hard as the sixth. You need to kill three illusions with lower ultimate god-rank techniques.”
Anne’s lips twitched. In truth, if it was just one of them, the skill ceiling would not be that high. After all, most of the warriors gathered in Cloud City were not weak.
However, the challengers need to face three illusions with lower ultimate god-rank techniques at the same time!
The spike of difficulty was too high!
Quite a few of them failed at the second stage, let alone the first stage.
Stefan said, “Actually, I feel like the first stage isn’t as hard as I thought. The challengers only need to defeat two illusions that have gotten their lower ultimate god-rank techniques to the second stage.”
Anne’s lips twitched, saying helplessly, “When it’s you, it isn’t difficult at all, but other warriors will say otherwise. Even those among the upper end of the ladder will find it hard to complete all six stages!”
No wonder those two were arguing so much.
Anne sighed. If he had their level of skills, he might have struggled just to figure out the order. After all, it concerned their future accomplishments.
No one was willing to end up being much worse than all those around them just because they could not get through this.
Anne looked at the sharp-nosed man and said to Jordan, “You only get to challenge it three times?”
Stefan nodded. There were a lot of stones around the plaza, but there were also a lot of challengers.
If the challenges were not limited, no one would ever be able to get their turn. With this rule, every warrior valued their challenges a lot.
Some of them sat by the sides to calm themselves to prevent regretting their choices. They tried their best to play out the challenges, doing their best to make it as easy as possible so they could complete them.
Unfortunately, a lot of the warriors just could not get through it no matter how well they arranged things. If they wanted to easily get the Valley Entrance Passes, they needed to have enough skill.
Many of them would place the blame on whatever they could instead of recognizing that they themselves and the failings of their skills and foresight-were the problem.
Those warriors that had been following Stefan started to rub their hands as well, wanting to try it out. After all, they had three chances. Even if they wasted one, they still had two more.
In truth, not many of them felt like they would be able to get the passes from their compatibility. After all, high compatibility required a lot of talent.
They knew themselves how talented they were. Many of them had their hopes on the Killing Illusion Array, feeling that they would be able to use their skills and their wits to obtain the Valley Entrance Pass.
Among them, a man in purple robes shook his head and said, “I’ll pass the first stage first. If I can’t even pass that, I shouldn’t bother trying anymore.”
The first stage was the hardest, so many of them chose to put the first stage first. After all, their focus and power would be at their highest when they first enter.
It was when they were at their strongest that they would be able to show their full strength.
