Chapter 1023: Sword Profundity!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Feng Tian Wu, a person who did not comprehend even a tiny bit of Sword Force, immediately comprehended the Seventh Level Intermediate Sword Concept because of the word ‘Sword’ on the wall.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes shone brilliantly. He was once again surprised by Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang’s technique.
Just by carving the word ‘Sword’ on the wall of the canyon, it brought such great transformations to him and Feng Tian Wu. He would have a hard time believing this was true if he did not experience and witness this himself.
“Huh?” Soon after, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed, and a shock expression appeared on his face. It was as though he had noticed something.
At this moment, he saw the Heaven and Earth Energy began to whirl above Feng Tian Wu as the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon continued to change.
Meanwhile, the sword-shaped flame on Feng Tian Wu released an aura that was becoming fiercer and sharper. The flame continued to rise as though it could pierce through the sky.
“Eight Level Intermediate Sword Concept!”
“Ninth Level Intermediate Sword Concept!”
When Duan Ling Tian saw the changes in the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above Feng Tian Wu’s head, his eyes continued to narrow. The bewildered expression on his face did not disappear at all.
Apart from the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon, his Spiritual Energy also sensed the Sword Concept that filled the sword-shaped flame shrouding Feng Tian Wu’s body was getting stronger with every passing second.
“Second Level Advance Sword Concept!”
When Duan Ling Tian saw Feng Tian Wu’s Sword Concept had risen to such a level, he became visibly shaken. “H-How’s this possible?!”
“Even Xiong Quan who has comprehended the Sword Force before only managed to reach the First Level Advance Sword Concept after he immersed himself in the word ‘Sword’ on the canyon wall! How can Tian Wu, who has never comprehended any Sword Force before, progress faster than Xiong Quan?” Duan Ling Tian gasped.
He remembered Xiong Quan had already comprehended the Advanced Sword Force when his Dantian was crippled. However, he only managed to raise it to the First Level Advance Sword Concept after he immersed himself in the word ‘Sword’ on the canyon wall.
“C-Could it be because everyone’s comprehension is different so the way the word ‘Sword’ aids a person is also different?” Duan Ling Tian currently had no other explanation other than this.
This seemed to be the only plausible explanation for what was happening right now.
Apart from this, he really could not think of a second explanation.
However, Duan Ling Tian’s speculation was swiftly and ruthlessly crushed by reality. It made him realized the entire thing was not as simple as he had imagined.
“Third Level Advance Sword Concept!”
“Fourth Level Advance Sword Concept!”
“Fifth Level Advance Sword Concept!”
As Duan Ling Tian used his Spiritual Energy to sense the Sword Concept’s transformation on Feng Tian Wu, he also watched the changes in the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above her. He was completely stunned by the scene.
Eventually, the Sword Concept’s aura finally stopped transforming.
Moreover, the Heaven and Earth Energy above Feng Tian Wu had turned calm, and the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon was suspended at the moment.
The silhouettes of ancient horned dragons that filled up the entire sky writhed as they descended in a lively and vivid manner. The sight was a shocking visual to the spectators.
There was a total of 2,000 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes!
This was the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon formed by the Heaven and Earth Energy that Feng Tian Wu’s Fire and Sword Concepts mobilized.
The two Concepts had the strength of 2,000 ancient horned dragons added up together.
The Ninth Level Advance Fire Concept was equivalent to the strength of 1,000 ancient horned dragons.
Due to this reason, it was easy to deduce Feng Tian Wu’s Sword Concept was at the Ninth Level Advance Sword Concept!
“After being immersed in the word ‘Sword’, even I managed to raise my Fifth Level Advance Sword Concept to the Ninth Level Advance Sword Concept. Tian Wu, on the other hand, managed to transform from a martial artist who did not comprehend any Sword Force to one who has comprehended the Ninth Level Advance Sword Concept in just a blink of an eye! Even if her comprehension is really stronger than mine, isn’t it a little outrageous for it to be so much stronger? It’s too ridiculous!” Duan Ling Tian’s heart was in a turmoil. He could not calm down even after a long time.
Feng Tian Wu who did not have any encounter with the Sword Force previously had just comprehended the Ninth Level Advance Sword Concept in one fell swoop after she immersed herself in the word ‘Sword’ on the canyon wall.
“W-What’s going on here?!” Duan Ling Tian was puzzled. He was almost certain this had nothing to do with comprehension.
Right at this moment, Feng Tian Wu finally woke up.
“What a powerful strength… I-Is this the Sword Concept?” After she woke up, she stretched both of her arms. The sword-shaped flame instantly skyrocketed and emitted a scorching aura as though it had transformed into two giant flaming swords.
“Tian Wu, how did you do it?” When Feng Tian Wu heard the voice of the person in her dreams, she immediately returned to her senses. After she withdrew the sword-shaped flame on her body, she smiled in the direction of the voice.
Feng Tian Wu looked at Duan Ling Tian and smiled faintly — the smile seemed as though it could captivate all living beings in the world. For a moment, Duan Ling Tian lost his train of thoughts, he had completely forgotten about the matter at hand.
“Big Brother Duan, what did you ask me?” It was not until Feng Tian Wu’s soft and pleasant voice entered his ears that he finally snapped back to reality and became fully conscious of his surroundings again.
With a wry smile, he replied, “I’m asking about your Sword Concept.”
“Sword Concept?” Confusion appeared on Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful and delicate face.
“Try to activate your Sword Concept and have a look at the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon formed by the Heaven and Earth Energy… You don’t even know what level it’s currently at,” Duan Ling Tian replied again.
Feng Tian Wu nodded obediently. In the next second, she cast her Sword Concept as instructed by Duan Ling Tian.
Her beautiful arched eyebrows furrowed slightly as though she had noticed something.
In the next second, Feng Tian Wu’s brows relaxed again.
Soon after, flames surged out from her body. It exuded a scorching aura that made Duan Ling Tian narrow his eyes.
He found it strange.
Did he not ask Tian Wu to cast her Sword Concept?
Why did she unleash her Fire Concept instead?
At the moment when Duan Ling Tian thought it was strange, the encompassing flame with a sharp aura surged from Feng Tian Wu’s body before it transformed into a sword-shaped flame.
“N-Ninth Level Advance Sword Concept?” When Feng Tian Wu saw the 2000 silhouettes above her own head, she was rooted the spot, dumbfounded. It took a while before she regained her senses.
Although she had an inkling the Sword Concept she had comprehended was not weak, it did not occur to her it would be so strong.
The Ninth Level Advance Sword concept!
It was basically on par with the Ninth Level Advance Fire Concept she had comprehended.
“Tian Wu,” As though he had noticed something, Duan Ling Tian looked at Feng Tian Wu solemnly. “I noticed earlier that you unleashed your Fire Concept first before unleashing the Sword Concept. I wonder if you did that on purpose or is that the only way you can cast it?”
After he raised this question, he stared fixedly at Feng Tian Wu as though he was eager to find out the answer to the question.
“I don’t know what’s going on as well. It’s just that if I don’t unleash my Fire Concept first, I won’t be able to connect with the Sword Concept.” Feng Tian Wu furrowed her beautiful arched brows again when she recalled the scene from earlier. “It seems as though the Sword Concept came from the Fire Concept,”
“Just as I thought!” The moment Duan Ling Tian heard Feng Tian Wu’s reply, a gleam flashed across his eyes.
The process when Feng Tian Wu cast her Sword Concept seemed familiar to him.
It was similar to when he had unleashed his Wind Concept first before he could unleash his Fire Concept. The latter was birthed from his Wind Concept.
“Big Brother Duan, do you know the reason?” Feng Tian asked inquisitively when she saw a gleam of realization in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
“Tian Wu, if I’m not mistaken, your Sword Concept is birthed from your Fire Concept. Moreover, your Sword Profundity will be at the same level as your Fire Profundity as long as you can cast it!” Duan Ling Tian explained with a solemn face.
When he reached the end of his sentence, a hint of envy could be seen in the depth of his eyes.
Although he did not know why the Sword Concept would arise from the Fire Concept, he knew the reason for it was the word ‘Sword’ inscribed on the canyon wall.
“That Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang is indeed remarkable! He’s the reason why Feng Tian Wu’s Fire Concept could birth the Wind Concept.” Duan Ling Tian could not suppress the sigh from his chest.
He was very clear about the fact that Tian Wu’s Fire Concept birthing the Sword Concept was an entirely different matter from her comprehending the Sword Concept.
What the former meant was as long as her Fire Concept level rose, the Sword Concept level would rise accordingly as well without the need to comprehend it.
The latter, on the other hand, required her to comprehend it on her own.
This theory was similar to his Wind Concept that came from his Fire Concept through the Eighth Form of the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique that he mastered— the Roving Dragon Form.
There was no need for him to comprehend the Fire Concept.
As long as his Wind Concept made progress, his Fire Concept would automatically follow suit.
In the future, if he comprehended the Wind Profundity, the Wind Profundity would birth the Fire Profundity as well.
At this moment, a scorching aura hit Duan Ling Tian directly in the face. It was only then he realized Feng Tian Wu’s flame had soared up into the sky. She had just cast the Fire Profundity.
First Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity!
The Heaven and Earth Energy whirled above the sky. The 1000 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons that were mobilized by the Ninth Level Advance Fire Concept’s Heaven and Earth Energy quickly transformed into 2000 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons.
“Tian Wu’s trying to give rise to the Sword Profundity?” Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes as he figured out what Feng Tian Wu was trying to do.
In the next moment, the flame that was growing bigger and bigger on Feng Tian Wu’s body suddenly quivered and transformed into a bigger sword-shaped flame that pointed up at the entrance of the canyon above the sky.
Meanwhile, 1000 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons above Feng Tian Wu’s head that was formed from the Ninth Level Advance Sword Concept’s Heaven and Earth Energy had also transformed into 2000 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons.
