Chapter 1193: It’s Called A ‘Hammer’
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The owner of the purple figure was none other than Duan Ling Tian.
More than a month had gone by since those six great forces had come to the Ling Tian Sect. In this one month or so, Duan Ling Tian had successfully created the remaining puppets.
Not only that, but he also managed to group the puppets together and completely merge the Origin Energy that extended out of their Origin Stones in their bodies with the help of the Inscription Formation he extracted from the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
Because the Origin Stones inside the group of puppets were all of the supreme grade, the Origin Energy released by the Origin Stones from inside the combined puppet, which was made from this group of puppets, could mimic a Seventh Level Martial Monarch Stage martial artist.
Once it was unleashed, it would be equivalent to the strength of one ancient black dragon!
“And this is because I’ve taken out all the supreme grade Origin Stones that I possibly could… Otherwise, the Origin Energy extending out of the puppets wouldn’t be this potent.” When Duan Ling Tian was creating the group of miniature puppets, not only did he use up all of the stock of the supreme grade Origin Stones in the Ling Tian Sect, but he also used up all of the supreme grade Origin Stones in the Spatial Rings left behind by the twelve powerhouses from the six great forces.
There were no longer any supreme grade Origin Stones in his hand.
“How lucky for you! It’s fortunate that you didn’t let me down.” Standing in front of the copper puppet, Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself, “However, if I want to raise your strength even more, I need to get my hands on more supreme grade Origin Stones. Or perhaps, I should wait for my Spiritual Energy to make further progress.”
The reason he said so was that his Spiritual Energy right now could only embed four pieces of Profundity Fragments into the puppet. He could not put the fifth piece in at all.
Therefore, the strength that the copper puppet demonstrated now was limited.
Right now, the copper puppet standing in front of Duan Ling Tian had a strength equivalent to a Seventh Level Martial Monarch when all of its energy was fully unleashed. It was equivalent to the strength of an ancient black dragon.
On top of that, when they were grouped together, Duan Ling Tian made the few small puppets that would form fists to become a grade one spirit sword. When it made its attack, both of its fists would have the strength of over 9,000 ancient horned dragons.
Among the four pieces of Profundity Fragments, the strongest one was the Eighth Level Profundity Fragment. When they were all added up together, the strength demonstrated would be equivalent to three ancient black dragons plus an additional 2,000 ancient horned dragons.
For this reason, when all of its strength was released, it would be equivalent to the strength of five ancient black dragons plus 1,000 over ancient horned dragons. This would be 2,000 ancient horned dragons stronger than when Duan Ling Tian unleashed all of his power.
However, the biggest flaw in it was that it did not know any martial skills and it could only use brute strength.
For this reason, even though its strength was 2,000 ancient horned dragons stronger than that of Duan Ling Tian’s, it was still forced to retreat after it blocked the sword attack that Duan Ling Tian cast.
Of course, if they continued to fight, Duan Ling Tian would have no opportunity of winning at all.
No matter how skillful his sword technique was, the strength gap of 2,000 ancient horned dragons was just too hard to overcome.
Looking at the puppet in front of him, Duan Ling Tian murmured, “As long as my Spiritual Energy can be raised, I can then merge a fifth Profundity Fragment into its body! By that time, its strength would continue to be elevated, and if there was a great number of supreme grade Origin Stones, it could raise its strength all the same too!”
However, all in all, he was quite pleased with the strength that the puppet possessed. If it fully went all out, even he would be no match to the puppet. As for the other people in the Ling Tian Sect, well, was there even a need to talk about that?
“Duan Ling Tian!” Suddenly, a familiar voice entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
In the next instance, he saw a figure charging up the peak like a lightning streak. He sliced through the sky like a sharp blade.
The next moment, the person came to a halt not far away from Duan Ling Tian and revealed his true identity. It was none other than his old friend from last time, Chen Shao Shuai, who had come to the Ling Tian Sect a while ago.
Chen Shao Shuai was one of the five great young masters of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom. To be exact, he was the Sword Young Master.
As a glimmer flashed across Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, he asked curiously, “When did you come out of your closed-door cultivation?”
As far as he knew, after Chen Shao Shuai came to the Ling Tian Sect, he had never left and swore never to leave the closed-door cultivation until he made a breakthrough as he began to start cultivating painstakingly.
“I just came out today,” Chen Shao Shuai replied. At the same time, he grumbled, ” Duan Ling Tian, you really are stingy!”
Upon hearing Chen Shao Shuai’s words, Duan Ling Tian immediately felt perplexed. With a confused face, he asked, “Stingy? What do you mean?”
“I heard that you wiped out twelve powerhouses from six great first-rate forces last month, but you didn’t order anybody to come and ask me to watch the fight! Isn’t that stingy of you?!” Chen Shao Shuai grumbled.
“And here I thought what was the matter in the first place.” Duan Ling Tian was stunned first before he shook his head as he smiled. “That time, when I heard that somebody has come to our Ling Tian Sect to kill, I was instantly consumed with flames of rage, and all that was in my mind was to avenge my Ling Tian Sect disciples… Do you think I’d even have such spare thoughts during that time?”
When Duan Ling Tian reached the end of his sentence, he rolled his eyes at Chen Shao Shuai in speechlessness.
Of course, it was only in front of Chen Shao Shuai, his old friend of the past, that he was able to be so casual and return to his original self without the need to put on any fake airs at all.
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, Chen Shao Shuai did not have any comeback for him at all.
Very soon, he no longer hung on to this matter as his gaze shifted towards the copper puppet beside Duan Ling Tian. Curious, he asked, “Duan Ling Tian, did you make this puppet?”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“When did you make it? I don’t remember seeing this big fella at all when I first came here.” Chen Shao Shuai was surprised.
“Just recently,” Duan Ling Tian replied.
Chen Shao Shuai nodded his head in realization before he asked again, “Why did you make this? This puppet can only have a strength that is equivalent to a Void Transformation Stage martial artist at most. Not just that, but it doesn’t obey orders and can’t be controlled at all. It’s pretty much useless!”
Chen Shao Shuai knew a little bit about puppets.
Even if it were a puppet catalyzed by supreme grade Origin Stones, it could only mimic a Seventh Level Void Transformation Stage martial artist, and it could not even withstand a blow from a Martial Monarch like him.
“Pretty much useless?” Chen Shao Shuai’s words made Duan Ling Tian chuckle before he asked with a smile, “Do you wanna test its strength?”
“You want me to test its strength? Are you serious?” Chen Shao Shuai looked at Duan Ling Tian like he was looking at a ghost. “I’ll be able to destroy this useless puppet with just a casual attack without the use of any spirit weapons!”
“Give it a try then.” Duan Ling Tian’s smile remained plastered on his face.
“Are you sure you want me to try? If I really give it a go, don’t blame me when I accidentally smashed it into a pile of rubbles, okay?” Chen Shao Shuai asked again.
In the end, just like earlier, he still looked down upon the copper puppet by the side of Duan Ling Tian from the bottom of his heart with complete disdain and contempt.
“If you can smash it into a pile of rubble, I’ll give you a grade one spirit sword that can give a boost of 90% in strength,” Duan Ling Tian offered.
“Are you for real?” The moment Duan Ling Tian’s words left his mouth, Chen Shao Shuai’s eyes had already brightened up. Staring fixedly at Duan Ling Tian, his breathing turned rapid as his chest rose and fell like a bellow, unable to calm down for a long time.
Even though he did not know that Duan Ling Tian was a grade one weapons craftsman yet, he had already heard that he could contact a remarkable grade one Master Weapons Craftsman.
It was said that a grade one weapons craftsman could craft grade one spirit weapons that could give a 90% boost.
When he just heard about this, he was immediately tempted.
The spirit weapon in his hand was only a grade two spirit sword. If it could be upgraded to become a grade one spirit sword that could give off a boost of 90%, it would be like changing a fowling piece in a big gun as he was able to raise his strength significantly.
Right now, upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, he thought that the latter intended to give a grade one spirit sword to him.
After all, in his mind, this puppet would not be able to withstand a blow in front of a martial artist at his level.
“When have I ever deceived you before?” Duan Ling Tian scowled at Chen Shao Shuai before retreating and flying backward. From afar, he told Chen Shao Shuai, “Hi! Make your move on Hammer first, lest you say that Hammer bullies you!”
“Hammer?” Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, Chen Shao Shuai could not help but be stunned.
Duan Ling Tian looked at the puppet that was three meters tall and said, “It’s that puppet.”
Hammer was the name that he had christened this puppet.
“It’s only a puppet that would crumble on the first blow, and you actually gave it a name?” Chen Shao Shuai was a little flabbergasted. Once again, he looked at Duan Ling Tian to reconfirm, “Duan Ling Tian, are you sure that I can smash it into a pile of rubble?”
“Come on! Since when did you become so womanishly fussy? If you can really smash it into a pile of rubble? Not only that, but I’ll give you a grade one spirit sword that can give a strength boost of 90%. Furthermore, I’ll give you two bottles of grade one Life Recovery Pills that have a purity of 90% and above as well!” Duan Ling Tian frowned and snapped, slightly irritated.
“You said so yourself, okay?!” The moment Duan Ling Tian’s words left his mouth, Chen Shao Shuai could no longer resist the temptation anymore. With a flash of his body, he started to make his move.
Within Duan Ling Tian’s field of vision, Chen Shao Shuai’s entire person seemed to have transformed into a sharp sword as he soared through the sky. His target was the copper puppet that was three meters tall and was also known as Hammer.
“Without any Spirit Weapon?” When Duan Ling Tian saw Chen Shao Shuai raise his hand to solidify Origin Energy, Profundity, and Concept into a sword before charging out towards Hammer at a speed as fast as lightning, he could not help but be taken aback. He could not believe that Chen Shao Shuai was actually this haughty.
The sword in Chen Shao Shuai’s hand was wielded out freely and charged towards Hammer. In the next second, it already arrived just right in front of Hammer.
At a speed of thunder and lightning, Duan Ling Tian gave an order to Hammer, “Defense!”
At that moment, the Origin Energy from Hammer’s body skyrocketed as four high-level Profundities followed suit like shadows. In just a moment, it had already formed a four-colored light shield around its body.
Right at this moment, the sword in Chen Shao Shuai’s hand had also landed on the light shield in time and clattered loudly!
However, there was not even the slightest trace of ripple at all on the light shield at all. It still remained as steady as a mountain like the thunderous sword attack from Chen Shao Shuai was nothing at all.
With no result from his first blow, Chen Shao Shuai’s face darkened right away. With a lift of his hand, a grade two spirit sword appeared, and he made his attack again. The shadow of the sword charged out with ease and pounded towards the light shield on Hammer.
Another loud bang resonated, but the light shield still did not budge at all.
This time, Chen Shao Shuai started to notice that something was wrong.
“Right now, it’s time for Hammer to make his move instead.” At the same time, a familiar voice resonated by Chen Shao Shuai’s ears, causing horror to dawn on him right away.
