Jiang Chen's determined voice resounded throughout the Assignment Hall, attracting the attention of many disciples around him, but he didn't seem to care about any of it as he kept staring seriously at Shun Long.

Shun Long shook his head since he knew that it was impossible to change their minds. 

At the same time, he also understood that Jiang Chen was right. 

If he could take on a D-rank faction mission by himself, especially one that required him to take down a middle rank 5 magic beast, how could the rest of them try and complete the easier missions?

In the end, all 4 of them could be considered geniuses even in the Holy sect, and even if they weren't monsters at the same level as Shun Long right now, they couldn't simply allow themselves to fall behind him.

If Shun Long could complete a faction mission by himself with his cultivation at the early rank 3 of the Nascent Soul, how could the rest of them shy away from it when they were more than 2 minor ranks higher than him?

This was also the same reason why Liu Mei had accepted the 'Blood Absorption art' from Little Black.

She didn't want to fall too behind from Shun Long, and she knew that that was the only way to keep walking by his side.

Besides, would the rest of the factions in the outer court really wait for them to gradually grow stronger? Which of the other disciples of the Holy sect wasn't doing their best to grow as well? After all, the sect itself was no different than a huge competition.

However, understanding which risks to take was still important.
Although Shun Long understood Jiang Chen's and the rest's thoughts, he wasn't planning on letting them needlessly risk their lives in the future.

''Let's go!''

Shun Long's calm voice resounded in everyone's ears, as he turned around and left the Assignment Hall, heading towards the entrance of the sect.

When they arrived in front of the entrance of the enormous white palace at the peak of the Holy mountain, Shun Long turned around and looked at Liu Mei and the rest of his group before he said in a serious voice

''No matter what, make sure to stay alive.
I don't care if you push yourselves to the limits or not, a month from now, I expect each of you to return safely here.''

As he finished speaking, Shun Long stared at Jiang Chen and Bai Longtian for a few moments, before he turned his gaze towards Xie Xingyi and finally Liu Mei who was looking at him with a sweet gaze.

Shun Long clearly understood, that even though Jiang Chen was most likely the strongest one out of those 4 right now, he and Bai Longtian would be in the most danger during their missions, which was why he warned the 2 of them like this.

This was because both of them had actually chosen the same type of missions, to eradicate a den of thieves where the bandit leaders of those dens had much higher cultivation bases than them, while the bandit leaders' subordinates were also said to be strong as well.

However, that wasn't the only reason why Shun Long felt that the 2 of them were going to be in danger this time compared to Liu Mei and Xingyi.

After all, Liu Mei and Xie Xingyi had also chosen extremely difficult missions for their own levels, and their missions' difficulty didn't pale in front of Jiang Chen's and Bai Longtian's missions.

Instead, it was because Jiang Chen and Bai Longtian didn't have any powerful ways to escape from their opponents if they ended up in a tough spot.

Xie Xingyi's physique was not only suited towards stealth and assassination, but it was also perfect when she needed to escape from a dangerous situation.
Although nothing was truly perfect and there were plenty of ways to counter that as well, Shun Long understood that it wasn't easy to lock down someone who had the Vanishing Shadows unique physique if they were prepared.

However, Jiang Chen and Bai Longtian were completely different from the 2 girls.

Although each one of them also had a unique physique and they were also considered monsters in their own regards, they didn't have a way to escape like Liu Mei and Xie Xingyi did.

Even though Jiang Chen's attack, control, and speed were all at the peak of his level, especially when he activated both his 'Eternal Darkness physique' and used his 'Demonic Wings' to augment his speed, while Bai Longtian's attack, defense, and speed were practically unmatched for cultivators at the same level, especially when he activated his 'Golden Buddha unique physique', if they were caught in a bad situation and they didn't try to escape in time, they truly may die.

However, Shun Long wasn't willing to see either of them dying.

Almost as if they had guessed Shun Long's thoughts, Jiang Chen and Bai Longtian both nodded their heads as they looked at him, before Jiang Chen's lips actually formed a rare smile as his voice resounded in everyone's ears

''Don't worry.
I promise that even without my bloodline, I still won't die to a bunch of trash regardless of their cultivation level.
You shouldn't die either.''

''Brother Shun, the same goes for me.
My Golden Buddha unique physique isn't that soft for me to die so easily.
I am more worried about you instead.''

Shun Long shook his head and smiled when he heard Jiang Chen's and Bai Longtian's determined tones as they spoke.

''Alright, let's go then.
If any of you return before the 1-month period is over, you can go and take a look at the Dao Tower inside the Holy city.
One month later…
we will take on the C-rank faction mission together!''
