Chapter 1192: Strong Puppet
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Wu Lie would not have been able to convince several first-rate forces to join forces against the Ling Tian Sect if Duan Ling Tian had not persuaded several grade one Weapon Craftsmen and Alchemists to join the Ling Tian Sect.
Duan Ling Tian was very clear on that.
Now that Wu Lie was dead, he collected Wu Lie’s Spatial Ring and Profundity Fragment from his corpse.
Then, Duan Ling Tian’s silhouette flashed and vanished into thin air after collecting the Spatial Ring and Profundity Fragment.
Zoom! Zoom! Zoom!
In just a matter of seconds, several short-lived cries filled the air.
The next thing the Ling Tian Sect elders and disciples noticed was that the other five people apart from the Sect Leader of the True Martial Sect, Wu Lie, who was already dead, had been killed.
At the same time, the purple silhouette reappeared and entered their line of sight. It took them a while to recover from their shock.
Their Sect Leader was outrageously powerful.
“Not a bad haul,” Duan Ling Tian murmured while looking at the pile of Spatial Rings and Profundity Fragments in his hand.
“Sect Leader is incredibly powerful!” At that time, the elders and disciples of the Ling Tian Sect came to their senses and gawked at Duan Ling Tian with awe and respect.
Although they already knew that their current Sect Leader was mighty, they had the misconception that Duan Ling Tian was just slightly stronger than the original Peak Master of Yang Peak, Yang Hong.
The incident today totally changed their opinion of their Sect Leader.
Their current Sect Leader had just killed four Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage powerhouses even after they joint hand.
Any of the four Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage powerhouses could have easily killed Yang Hong, the original Peak Master of Yang Peak from the Ying Yang Sect. Instead, all four of them were killed by Duan Ling Tian, the Sect Leader of the Ling Tian Sect, in the blink of an eye.
Many people were whispering among themselves, “As long as our Sect Leader is around, the Ling Tian Sect will be able to hold our ground among the mid-level first-rate forces.”
There were many first-rate forces in the Inner Land of the Cloud Continent. However, their strength vastly differed from one another.
For example, the former Yin Yang Sect along with the True Martial Sect and the Zhou Clan were considered the lower level first-rate forces in the Inner Land. They belonged at the bottom of the rankings.
The four people that Duan Ling Tian had just killed were the leaders of four lower mid-level first-rate forces. They were far superior in strength when compared to the lower level first-rate forces.
“I agree… I believe that with our Sect Leader’s strength, he can even take on the top powerhouses of mid-level first-rate forces!” Another person added.
Many people quickly agreed with him.
“Our Sect Leader single-handedly killed the leaders of the six largest first-rate forces and the Eighth Level Martial Monarch Stage powerhouses that they brought along with them… My heart is still pounding just thinking about that scene.”
Many Ling Tian Sect’s elders and disciples discussed the recent battle excitedly. At that moment, they were proud of their identity as the elders and disciples of the Ling Tian Sect.
“Master, you’ve improved rapidly.” The Gold Thug smiled wryly at Duan Ling Tian.
He recalled his battle against Duan Ling Tian the first time they met. Although Duan Ling Tian won, the victory was only by a small margin. However, the current Duan Ling Tian had surpassed him by leaps and bounds.
“Young Master.” Xiong Quan eyes glimmered, and he seemed very excited after witnessing Duan Ling Tian’s power.
Feng Tian Wu stood aside with a poker face. However, when her gaze fell on Duan Ling Tian, it turned warm and tender.
“Outrageous! That’s abnormal!” Zhang San murmured while sizing Duan Ling Tian up as if it was their first time meeting.
He could never have guessed that the Sect Leader of the Ling Tian Sect was not only an outrageously talented weapons craftsman and alchemists, but he was also a superb martial artist.
“Rumor has it that Sect Leader is also an Inscription Master.”
Zhang San became speechless after that. He felt that all his years of his life had been wasted.
The group of grade one weapons craftsmen and grade one alchemists were just as bewildered as Zhang San was.
They had joined the Ling Tian Sect after Zhang San did. Back then, all of them were filled with pride and arrogance, but after witnessing Duan Ling Tian’s weapons crafting and medicine refining technique, they were all humbled.
They discovered that their weapons crafting and medicine refining technique was nothing compared to Duan Ling Tian.
They heard rumors that the Sect Leader of the Ling Tian Sect was extremely powerful since he was able to kill Peak Master Yang Hong of Yang Peak from the Yin Yang Sect in just an instant. Still, most of them did not precisely fathom how powerful Duan Ling Tian was.
Today, through his strength, their Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian, had etched that impression into their hearts and minds. They were astounded after seeing how powerful he was!
A group of grade one weapons craftsmen and grade one alchemists whispered among themselves and lamented.
“Our Sect Leader must be the favorite child of the heavens!”
“Apart from being accomplished in the Weapons Refinement Dao, Medicine Refinement Dao, and Inscription Dao, he also has such immense strength in Martial Dao.”
“The strength of four ancient black dragons in addition to 9,000 ancient horned dragons … He can do as he pleases in the outer rim of the Inner Land with such power.”
Duan Ling Tian kept his cool when he faced all their looks of respect and awe. “Time to disperse.”
Duan Ling Tian vanished into thin air in front of the disciples and elders of the Ling Tian Sect as soon as he finished his sentence. Only the rare few who were above the Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage powerhouse saw his silhouette leaving.
The scene became even livelier after Duan Ling Tian left.
“After today’s incident, the Ling Tian Sect’s name will once again be known in the outer southern area of the Inner Land.
No one doubted that. That news indeed spread very quickly thanks to the Ling Tian Sect disciples. Many people were stunned when they heard it.
The Ling Tian Sect became famous yet again.
The sect which was renamed from the Yin Yang Sect had its name revered near and far.
Among them, as the Sect Leader of the Ling Tian Sect, Duan Ling Tian was even better known. He was viewed as the “Prince Charming” by many female martial artists and was idolized by many of the younger generations.
Suddenly, everyone in the outer southern area of the Inner Land from three years old to a hundred years old knew of Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian became a renowned person, and the Ling Tian Sect’s buzz outshone all the other first-rate forces in the region.
Naturally, it was also due to the fact that the outer southern area of the Inner Land only had low and mid-level first-rate forces.
The higher level first-rate forces were located in the inner areas and the core regions of the Inner Land.
At the Ling Tian Sect on Ling Tian Peak.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Waves of loud noises rumbled like exploding mines were heard resonating from the summit of Ling Tian Peak.
Currently, two silhouettes were battling it out at the summit of Ling Tian Peak. One of them was purple, and the other was bronze. Both the silhouettes were extremely fast, and they were deep in the battle in a blink of the eye.
Suddenly, the purple silhouette drew his sword.
At the same time, in the void above him, the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon made an earth-shattering change and transformed into the silhouettes of four ancient black dragons and 9,000 ancient horned dragons.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
However, the bronze silhouette was unfazed even when he faced his sword-wielding opponent. He swung his pair of hammer-like fists and seemingly shattered the space around them.
Nine Dragon Sword Control Technique!
Nine Dragon Radiant Flash!
The nine swords surrounding the purple silhouette instantly shot towards the bronze silhouette as fast as lightning while the purple silhouette zoomed backward.
The nine sword qi raced across the void and transformed into 81 five-colored Divine Dragons.
The 81 Divine Dragons shot out an extremely radiant glow from their eyes as soon as they appeared.
Zoom! Zoom! Zoom! Zoom! Zoom!
A total of 162 extremely bright streaks raced towards the bronze silhouette with the intention to puncture 162 holes on his body.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
At the same time, a layer of red energy appeared on the surface of the bronze silhouette’s body like it was a burning flame. The bronze silhouette soared towards the incoming 162 blinding streaks with his hammer-like fists.
In the void above him, a significant change occurred in the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon.
The outline of five ancient black dragons and a thousand ancient horned dragons rumbled towards the purple silhouette with great momentum along with his fists as though they were storm clouds.
Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang!
The bronzed silhouette flexed both its fists and four-colored energy spurred out from both fists to form a defensive barrier in front of him. The barrier managed to block the incoming 162 streaks of light.
Even though he managed to block the 162 incoming bright flashes, he was forced a few steps back as a result of its aftershock.
The defensive strength of five ancient black dragons and a thousand ancient horned dragons was barely more powerful than the offensive force of four ancient black dragons and 9,000 ancient horned dragons.
The purple silhouette stopped at that moment and put the sword in his hands away.
The three-meter-tall bronze silhouette also stood there motionless after the purple silhouette stored his sword.
The pulsating four-colored energy around his body was slowly dissipating. If anyone else had been there, he or she would definitely be shocked because the bronze silhouette was not human; it was a refined bronze puppet.
From the detailed and exquisite features on the puppet, one could discern the effort and dedication of its maker.
At that moment, the purple silhouette neared the puppet and exclaimed, “The fully exerted strength of five ancient black dragons in addition to a thousand ancient horned dragons… It can’t be improved any further for the time being.”
