Chapter 1158: Elder Yun Is Gone
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In the face of the doubt of the male disciples of the Ling Tian Sect, Duan Ling Tian did not say much. He knew that it would still be useless no matter how much positive words he put forth. Only a real-life action to fulfill his promise could shut everyone’s mouths up.
For this reason, Duan Ling Tian began to get busy that day as well.
Without a doubt, casting an Inscription Formation that enveloped half of Ling Tian Peak would be a huge process.
Even though Duan Ling Tian had already scrawled the Inscription on the materials and the Origin Stones beforehand, he still needed time to lay them out.
Duan Ling Tian did not even have any time to stop at all the entire day. From morning till midnight, Duan Ling Tian’s figure continuously flew up and down the northern side of Ling Tian Peak. As he made his move, each material and every Origin Stone were merged into the north hillside of Ling Tian Peak.
The location to place these materials and Origin Stones had to be taken into consideration too. Even the slightest miscalculation was not allowed.
“Fortunately, I can set this Defensive Formation directly through the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory. If it were taught to me orally, I don’t think I could finish setting it up even if I spent ten days and ten nights.” After placing the last batch of materials and Origin Stones in the place where they should be, Duan Ling Tian stopped his work and stood aside.
Just like that, the Defensive Formation that covered half of Ling Tian Peak was finished.
Looking at the night sky that was covered in scarce stars, Duan Ling Tian muttered before vanishing on the spot, “Right now, the only thing left is the briefing that I’ll give tomorrow.”
When he reappeared again, he was already back to where Luo Ping had arranged for him temporarily. It was a wooden house by the middle of the hillside of the southern side of Ling Tian Peak.
This wooden house was much better than Yang Xue’s wooden house. Not only was the area much larger, but the furniture in the house was all fully equipped as well.
Sitting cross-legged on the bed, Duan Ling Tian closed his eyes and started to cultivate.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique: Divine Dragon Form!
Not only that, three Nature Profundity Fragments were being held tightly in his hand as well for him to comprehend and raise his Fused Profundity.
Though the aid given by the Monarch Stage Nature Profundity Fragments to his Fused Profundity was not as far-fetched as the Heavenly Jewel, the Heavenly Jewel was not something that he could easily get his hands on at all.
Just like the Heavenly Jewel that he had obtained the last time in the Berserk Mongrel Rodent Clan, that Heavenly Jewel was entirely stored with Nature Energy.
Duan Ling Tian only took a month to fully absorb all of the Heavenly Jewel Energy, which was also Nature Energy, stored in the Heavenly Jewel that had been absorbing Nature Energy for 100 years before it could be filled.
For that reason, the Heavenly Jewel had also temporarily become trash. It would need to undergo another long period before it could regather the Heavenly Jewel Energy again.
However, after Duan Ling Tian had finished absorbing all of the Heavenly Jewel Energy stored inside the Heavenly Jewel, his Fused Profundity had also successfully made a breakthrough to the Second Level.
On top of that, he could also clearly feel that when he was halfway absorbing the Heavenly Jewel Energy in the Heavenly Jewel, his Fused Profundity had already made a breakthrough to the Second Level. After that, when he absorbed the other remaining half of the Heavenly Jewel, his Fused Profundity had already made further progress.
In the end, it was now very close to becoming Third Level Fused Profundity.
Right now, he was only a step away from comprehending the Third Level Fused Profundity.
“Just as I’ve guessed, be it its force, or the difficulty of leveling up, the Fused Profundity is on par with the Emperor Profundity.” After the Origin Energy in his body began to operate mentally according to the Divine Dragon Form of the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique and had started to get on track, Duan Ling Tian finally was able to think of something else now.
“The Fused Profundity was formed by five different First Level Monarch Stage Nature Profundities… The Fused Profundity at that time could be deemed as the First Level Fused Profundity. The First Level Fused Profundity is equivalent to the strength of two ancient black dragons! This is the same with the First Level Emperor Stage Profundity. Right now, with the help of the Heavenly Jewel Energy, my Fused Profundity is further elevated and has become the Second Level Fused Profundity! The Second Level Fused Profundity is equivalent to the strength of three ancient black dragons, just like the Second Level Emperor Stage Profundity as well. From here, we can see that every time the Fused Profundity is raised later on, it’ll have an additional strength of one ancient black dragon for every additional level.” This was not a hard deduction.
“However, it has been proven that my luck is pretty good… Two days before I arrived at the Yin Yang Sect, my cultivation has once again made a breakthrough to the Fourth Level Martial Monarch Stage! Had this not been the case, I wouldn’t have been able to snatch the saber that contained Yang Hong’s full force empty-handed.” Unknowingly, Duan Ling Tian’s train of thought had started to fly.
Initially, based on his estimation, he would need to wait for at least one to two months before he could make a breakthrough to the Fourth Level Martial Monarch Stage.
However, it had never crossed his mind that because he was torn with anxiety along his journey, being too worried about the safety of the two girls, it had startled the tyrannical medicinal efficacy of the Rebirth Pill inside his body.
You could then imagine the results.
The Rebirth Pill’s therapeutic efficacy burned further quickly and aided him to complete his breakthrough to the Fourth Level Martial Monarch Stage in one fell swoop, much earlier than he was supposed to!
Having made a breakthrough to the Fourth Level Martial Monarch Stage, he could cast out the strength of 6,000 ancient horned dragons just with his Origin Energy alone.
The strength of his Sixth Level Monarch Stage Sword Profundity was equivalent to 7,000 ancient horned dragons.
The Second Level Fused Profundity had a strength of three ancient black dragons!
For this reason, without any spirit weapon, he could already cast out the strength of four ancient black dragons and an additional 3,000 ancient horned dragons.
Two days ago, it was precisely with this strength that he was able to snatch the grade-one spirit saber from Yang Hong empty-handedly.
“If I use my Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword, my strength would be equivalent to four ancient black dragons plus an additional 9,000 ancient horned dragons! With the help of the Nine-Tribulation Sword Control Technique and the Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash, I won’t necessarily be defeated even if I come across a powerhouse who possesses the strength of five ancient black dragons!” Duan Ling Tian was very confident in the techniques that he had mastered.
He felt that if he used all of his techniques, he could compensate for the strength difference of the mere 1,000 ancient black dragons.
“The energy that I possess right now can already be compared to an ordinary Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage martial artist. Of course, I’m still far from those insanely monstrous Ninth Level Martial Monarch martial artists.” Through the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, Duan Ling Tian knew how hard it would be to make a breakthrough to the Martial Emperor Stage for a Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage martial artist.
It was more than a hundred times harder than going to the Martial Monarch Stage from the Void Transformation Stage.
If a Ninth Level Void Transformation Stage martial artist comprehended three different Ninth Level Void Transformation Concepts, or the Ninth Level Water and Fire Advance Concepts, it would not be hard to make a breakthrough to the Martial Monarch Stage.
However, even if a Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage martial artist had already comprehended three different Ninth Level Monarch Stage Profundities, or the Ninth Level Water and Fire Monarch Stage Profundities, there was still a chance to break through to the Martial Emperor Stage.
It was precisely for this reason that there were very few Martial Emperors in both the generations of the first and second reincarnations of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
“According to the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, at that era of his second reincarnation, the strongest Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage powerhouse had comprehended six different Ninth level Monarch Stage Profundities!”
Six types of Ninth Level Monarch Stage Profundities!
What the hell exactly was that?
In other words, even if that powerhouse only cast his Profundity strength, it was still equivalent to the power of six ancient black dragons!
Adding his own Origin Energy and grade-one spirit weapon, he could unleash a force that was far more than eight ancient black dragons!
“The strength of eight ancient black dragons…” Duan Ling Tian felt chills running down his spines just thinking about it.
Right now, although he could cast the strength of four ancient black dragons and 9,000 ancient horned dragons when he unleashed his full potential, his strength was still nothing compared to the Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage powerhouse who had mastered the force of eight ancient black dragons.
It would be very quick for this guy to kill him. It would be even easier than stepping on an ant.
“That powerhouse has comprehended six types of Ninth Level Monarch Stage Profundities, but he still can’t make a breakthrough to the Martial Emperor Stage… It looks like the Martial Emperor Stage is indeed very hard to be broken through.” The moment Duan Ling Tian thought about this, his heart gave a jolt. At the same time, he could feel intense pressure on himself as well.
According to the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, when he made a breakthrough to the Martial Emperor Stage, he had broken through it in a state of confusion. He did not even know what exactly did he rely on to make this breakthrough.
That time, the Rebirth Martial Emperor had comprehended four types of Ninth Level Monarch Stage Profundities.
During the second reincarnation, when the Rebirth Martial Emperor had made a breakthrough to the Martial Emperor Stage, he had not had any experience before. At first, he kept running up against walls everywhere, but in the end, he managed to make a breakthrough after he had comprehended three types of Ninth Level Monarch Stage Profundities.
“I wonder whether it’ll be easier for me to make a breakthrough to the Martial Emperor Stage compared to the two reincarnations of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.” The moment Duan Ling Tian thought of this, he became consumed with anxiety.
Although he had merged with the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s Memory, he still could not obtain any help in making a breakthrough to the Martial Emperor Stage because the Rebirth Martial Emperor himself had only managed to make a breakthrough to the Martial Emperor Stage in a state of confusion.
For this reason, he still needed to rely on himself if he wanted to make a breakthrough to the Martial Emperor Stage. He could not rely on the memory that the Rebirth Martial Emperor had left behind at all.
“I hope that I can also make a breakthrough in the state of confusion just like the Rebirth Martial Emperor did.” Duan Ling Tian hoped for a dream to happen.
Unknowingly, his feelings had gradually calmed down, and his entire being was now completely absorbed in cultivating and comprehending.
Cultivating the Ninth Form of the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique: Divine Dragon Form!
Comprehending the Fused Profundity and grasping the Sword Art knowledge contained in the ‘sword’ character deep in his mind left behind by the Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang.
Duan Ling Tian, who had submerged himself in cultivating and comprehending, had forgotten about the time. It was only when the sunlight from the rising sun that bathed the entire earth had shone on his face through the satin curtain by the side of the wooden house that he finally had some movement and opened his eyes.
“It’s already bright.” After Duan Ling Tian woke up, he walked out of the wooden house after freshening himself.
The moment he walked out of the door, Duan Ling Tian noticed the two figures standing there. They were none other than the two Vice Peak Masters of the former Yang Peak — You Ping and You An.
“You two were here since early morning? Don’t tell me that you’re worried that I’d go against my words?” Looking at the two anxious-looking You Brothers, Duan Ling Tian frowned, thinking that they were here for he had promised them that he would solve the issue about the chill wind by the northern side of Ling Tian Peak today.
“Sect Leader, Elder Yun is gone!” As You Ping exclaimed in distraught, Duan Ling Tian knew that he had guessed wrong.
