Xiong Quan was laughing.
Before he followed Duan Ling Tian into the Profound Assimilation Formation, he found out from Duan Ling Tian that martial artists who entered the formation would have their Concepts elevated.
The first thing he did when he woke up from a long, deep sleep was to try and cast his Sword Concept.
When he cast the Sword Concept, he looked at the Heaven and Earth Energy that was rumbling above his head. He witnessed the formation of the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon that displayed 1,000 ancient horned dragon’s silhouettes.
The Heaven and Earth Energy drove by the Sword Concept alone formed 1,000 ancient horned dragon’s silhouettes.
It was the symbol of the Ninth Advanced Level Sword Concept!
How could Xiong Quan not be happy about it?
Although he knew his Sword Concept would elevate before he entered the Profound Assimilation Formation, he did not expect the elevation to be this drastic.
It was so drastic to the point that it elevated all the way to Ninth Advanced Level. It was the peak of the Concept.
He was one step away from achieving Sword Profundity!
Profundity was usually exclusive to Martial Monarch powerhouses.
However, he realized that Profundity was not exclusive to Martial Monarch powerhouses when he witnessed Feng Tian Wu casting the Fire and Sword Profundity!
His situation was similar to Feng Tian Wu. She was only a First Level Void Transformation martial artist who had comprehended two Profundities. She comprehended two Monarch Stage Profundities. Moreover, those were not ordinary Profundities.
It was not a joke!
Compared to ordinary Monarch Stage Profundity, she possessed 4,000 ancient horned dragons’ strength from each Profundity.
Feng Tian Wu was only a First Level Void Transformation martial artist, but she had comprehended Third Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity and Third Level Monarch Stage Sword Profundity!
“Young Master! My Sword Concept broke through to the Ninth Advanced Level.” Xiong Quan was elated as he looked excitedly at Duan Ling Tian. There was a hint of pride in the depth of his eyes as well.
“Hmm, not bad.” Duan Ling Tian only nodded when he heard Xiong Quan’s words. He was not surprised at all. He had already expected Xiong Quan’s breakthrough.
“Ninth Advanced Level Sword Concept?
However, just because Duan Ling Tian was not surprised, it did not mean that Feng Tian was not surprised too. Although her expression remained cold, there was a hint of surprise in the depth of her bright eyes.
She was surprised by Xiong Quan’s breakthrough.
She had seen Xiong Quan casting his Sword Concept previously. Therefore, she knew the level of Xiong Quan’s Sword Concept very well.
To her surprise, Xiong Quan had comprehended the Ninth Advanced Level Sword Concept.
“Young Master, your comprehension is so much stronger than mine… This time, your improvement must be much more drastic than mine!” Xiong Quan calmed his chaotic emotion as he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
When Xiong Quan spoke, Feng Tian Wu looked at Duan Ling Tian. There was curiosity in her bright eyes. She was curious about Duan Ling Tian’s breakthrough in the Profound Assimilation Formation.
“It’s not bad, I guess.” Duan Ling Tian only gave a short and calm response to Xiong Quan’s question.
He then looked at Feng Tian Wu. “Tian Wu, why are you here?”
“Waiting for you,” Feng Tian Wu responded. As usual, she was stingy with her words.
Ever since she lost her memory, she had been aloof and taciturn even though she had learned about her past from Duan Ling Tian.
Therefore, Duan Ling Tian was not surprised by Feng Tian Wu’s short response.
Although he was not surprised, his heart jolted when he heard her response.
Based on Feng Tian Wu’s response, she had been waiting for him here for a long time. He could not help but feel moved and mumbled, “Silly girl.”
“Let’s head back,” Duan Ling Tian said to Feng Tian and Xiong Quan. He seemed to have suddenly recalled something. He had a look of concern on his face when he walked out of the side hall.
Feng Tian Wu and Xiong Quan were stunned when they saw Duan Ling Tian’s abrupt departure. They had no idea why Duan Ling Tian had left in such urgency.
They followed him curiously.
After leaving the side hall, Duan Ling Tian flew to the east side of the Lu Clan’s estate. It was the direction of the mansion he was currently living in.
It seemed as though he was missing home.
Naturally, he did not miss his current home. He was just eager to head back so he could comprehend Profundity using Profundity Fragment.
His cultivation base was not at the elementary stage of the Ninth Level Void Transformation.
With the help of the Rebirth Pill’s overbearing medicinal efficacy and the Spirit Fruit he consumed earlier, his cultivation base had reached the peak of the Ninth Level Void Transformation.
He was just half a step away from achieving the Martial Monarch Stage.
The only thing lacking was Profundity.
One could say that ‘Everything is in order except for the final push’!
As soon as he comprehended Profundity, his cultivation base would successfully break through to the Martial Monarch Stage.
At that time, he would become a Martial Monarch powerhouse!
A Martial Monarch powerhouse would not only have powerful abilities like outstanding martial artists, but he would also have everlasting youth.
Everlasting youth? What did that mean?
It meant that he would maintain his appearance at the moment he broke through to the Martial Monarch Stage for the rest of his life as long as he was willing.
Naturally, powerhouses who had broken through to the Martial Monarch Stage could opt for natural aging if they wanted to. In fact, many Martial Monarch powerhouses opted for the latter.
There were many martial artists on Cloud Continent who had broken through to the Martial Monarch Stage when they were in their middle-age. If they wanted, they could maintain their middle-aged appearance until they died.
However, they were not solitary people. Their mindset would change when they looked at their sons growing up to become adults, turning into middle-aged men before they eventually grew old.
Many of them chose to age naturally after breaking through to the Martial Monarch so they would look age-appropriate for their offsprings.
Would it not look ridiculous for a powerhouse to appear as though he was in his middle-age while his grandchildren appeared older than him?
After all, none of the Martial Monarch powerhouses could guarantee their sons and grandchildren would break through to the Martial Monarch Stage to maintain their youth.
Additionally, many Martial Monarch powerhouses also did not choose everlasting youth for the sake of their wives.
How would a Martial Monarch powerhouse feel having to look on as his beloved wife aged day by day? How would he feel as he witnessed her losing her teeth, her hair turning white and wrinkles appearing on her face while he maintained his middle-age appearance?
Naturally, every Martial Monarch powerhouses had different decisions.
In the Cloud Continent’s history, there were some young Martial Monarch powerhouses who had chosen everlasting youth.
They watched as their elderly children called them ‘father’, and their elderly grandchildren called them ‘grandfather’.
In their opinion, there was nothing odd about it. Seniority had nothing to do with outer appearance.
‘Martial Monarch Stage! Martial Monarch Stage!’ Duan Ling Tian was eager to head back. He wished he had a pair of wings so he could fly faster.
However, many thoughts were running through his mind the entire time.
“The Sword Concept, Wind Concept, Thunder Concept, and Earth Concept I had comprehended had broken through to the Ninth Advanced Level… I have all four Profundity Fragments for them.”
“I can divide my consciousness into three thanks to the after-effect of the Devilseal Tablet that I used twice… I can simultaneously comprehend three different Profundities through the Profundity Fragments.”
“Which three Concepts should I pick to turn into Profundities first? Ugh! This is annoying!” Duan Ling Tian was in caught in a dilemma.
“Why do all four Concepts have to break through to the Ninth Advanced Level at the same time? Sometimes it doesn’t seem like it’s a good thing to comprehend too many Ninth Advanced Level Concepts.” Duan Ling Tian sighed.
If someone else heard that, they would probably give him a slap and call him an ingrate and shameless.
“I must save a slot for the Wind Concept among the three Concepts… I must comprehend the Wind Profundity through the Wind Profundity Fragment!”
Naturally, he would use the Monarch Stage Profundity Fragments to break through to the Monarch Stage Profundity.
Although he had an Emperor Stage Wind Profundity Fragment with him, he could not use it just yet.
To be exact, he would have to wait until he had comprehended the Ninth Level Monarch Stage Wind Profundity to be able to use the Emperor Stage Wind Profundity Fragment.
However, apart from the Second Level Emperor Stage Wind Profundity Fragment that he obtained from the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure previously, he had an Eighth Level Monarch Stage Wind Profundity Fragment as well.
He could not use the former currently, but he could use the latter.
He planned to use the latter to comprehend the Wind Profundity once and for all and break through to Martial Monarch Stage to become a Martial Monarch powerhouse!
He prioritized the breakthrough of the Wind Concept because the Fire Profundity would be simultaneously raised to the same level.
Giving the Wind Concept priority was undoubtedly a wise choice.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian returned to the mansion he was residing in.
After he spoke to Feng Tian Wu and Xiong Quan, he returned to his room immediately and sat on his bed with his legs crossed.
Meanwhile, he held three fragments in his hands.
