The Coming of the Han Clan’s Powerhouse
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
At the Ling Tian Sect, southward of the northern desert.
Ever since the Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian, had left, the group of senior officials in the sect remained low-spirited.
The Gold Thug and Xiong Quan who once followed Duan Ling Tian did not know whether he was dead or alive because they could not enter the Lost Stone Forest.
To the Lost Stone Forest, Duan Ling Tian’s break-in was undoubtedly a taboo. The Martial Emperor Shi Qi had personally ordered a gag order so that no Martial Emperor’s disciple or followers dared to spread the word.
Under such dire circumstances, Ling Tian Sect had kept a lower profile compared to before.
However, losing Duan Ling Tian was akin to losing the pillar of the Ling Tian Sect. As time passed, the sect somewhat lost its cohesion.
Those who bore the brunt were the grade one weapons craftsmen and grade one alchemists. They had gone to the Ling Tian Sect mainly to improve their Weapons Refinement Dao and Medicine Refinement Dao.
In the beginning, they felt that it was worthwhile when they had just arrived at the Ling Tian Sect and received guidance from the Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian.
However, after Duan Ling Tian’s disappearance, many grade one weapon craftsmen and grade one alchemists had the intention of leaving the sect.
They would have left if it not for their reluctance to be the one to stand out and bear the label of being ungrateful.
Today, the Ling Tian Sect had an uninvited guest.
It was a tall, skinny, old man in a gray robe with an indifferent expression. His eyes seemed clouded, but they were laced with an intention to kill.
“This… Is this the sect controlled by Duan Ling Tian who killed He’Er?” The old man in gray muttered while looking out at the peak below him.
“As someone from the outer lands who managed to become a leader of a first-rate force in such a short time, that’s pretty impressive even if it were merely a lower level first-rate force… Unfortunately, you’ve killed someone you’re not supposed to,” muttered the old man while killing intention shot out of his eyes.
“Duan Ling Tian, I’ll give you ten breaths to appear in front of me… Or else, I’ll destroy your sect!” When the old man spoke, his voice which contained Origin Energy spread loudly as if it could break rocks and shatter the sky. The whole of the Ling Tian Sect was shaken.
In the Ling Tian Sect estate, at Ling Tian Peak, everyone below the ranks of the senior officials looked in horror.
“This voice… It’s him!” In a wooden house at the north side of Ling Tian Peak, a figure flew out. His face was extremely dismal.
It was a youthful man. While his face was gloomy, his eyes were filled with chilling hatred. It was a hatred that came from the depths of his heart.
The youthful man was Lu Bai.
Ever since his clan was destroyed, the Second Young Master of the Lu Clan that once existed crossed the Ruo Shui River to the inner lands and to the Ling Tian Sect.
After that, he stayed in the Ling Tian Sect and went into closed-door cultivation until a few days ago.
“I’ve to go warn Duan Ling Tian.” Lu Bai moved towards the south of Ling Tian Peak.
Lu Bai did not know that Duan Ling Tian had gone missing for a long time because he had just come out from his closed-door cultivation a few days ago. Until he met the Gold Thug and Xiong Quan, then he learned that the Sect Leader was not there.
“You know that person?” The Gold Thug lifted his head and looked towards the summit of Ling Tian Peak. Although he could not see the situation up there, judging from the voice, the person came with ill intentions.
“He’s a powerhouse from the Han Clan. He destroyed my Lu Clan… It seems like he’s found Duan Ling Tian, that’s why he came to Ling Tian Peak,” Lu Bai said in a deep voice. He speculated so from the fact that the other party managed to find their way here.
“Lu Clan?” The Gold Thug frowned.
“I know something about that,” Xiong Quan said.
When Lu Bai came to the Ling Tian Sect, he had learned that the Lu Clan had been destroyed from his Young Master’s mouth. He also knew the reason the Lu Clan had been destroyed.
It was because his Young Master had killed Cheng He, the Guild Master of the Alchemist Guild’s Main Guild in the Southern Outer Land of Cloud Continent.
Cheng He himself was nothing, but the problem his uncle who was a powerhouse from the Han Clan!
The Han Clan was one of two largest Ancient Clans of the Cloud Continent which was also one of two behemoths on the Cloud Continent. Even Martial Emperor Powerhouses and Demon Emperor Powerhouses on the Cloud Continent would avoid them.
The Han Clan had been passed down for tens of thousands of years. It was already a powerful first-class first-rate force on the Cloud Continent ten thousand years ago. After ten thousand years, the strength of their foundation and resources were unknown to all.
No one would believe that there were no Martial Emperor powerhouses in the Han Clan.
Of course, there were no Martial Emperor powerhouses in Han Clan on the surface.
Even so, the Martial Emperor powerhouses and Demon Emperor powerhouses on Cloud Continent would not easily offend the Han Clan. No one knew when a freak powerhouse would appear from the Han Clan.
“The Han Clan you’re talking about wouldn’t happen to be one of the two largest ancient clans of the Cloud Continent, would it?” Then, the Gold Thug finally recovered from his shock. His face changed dramatically as horror and uneasiness filled his eyes.
“That’s right. It’s that Han Clan.” Lu Bai nodded.
“The powerhouse of Han Clan… How did Master offend him?” Out of fear, the Gold Thug broke out in a cold sweat.
After all, the Ancient Han Clan was famous. Looking at the entire Cloud Continent, even Martial Emperor powerhouses and Demon Emperor powerhouses would not be able to shake it.
Otherwise, it would not have survived until today as a first-class force on the Cloud Continent.
After all, the nail that stuck out the most would be hammered down. After so many years, there must be many Martial Emperor powerhouses and Demon Emperor powerhouses who did not agree with the clan and attacked it with the intention to destroy it.
Even so, it had survived till that day. As such, one could only imagine the extent of its strength.
“At this point in time, we can only face it calmly,” Xiong Quan sighed.
The summit of Ling Tian Peak was quickly filled with people. A group of Ling Tian Sect senior officials and disciples had gathered. All of them looked at the gray figure high up in the sky with fear evident on their faces.
The figure was the old man in a gray robe who was also the powerhouse from the Han Clan, Han Jing.
“There’s only three breath’s time left.”
Han Jing stared at the people before him calmly and said faintly, “If Duan Ling Tian still doesn’t appear in three breaths, I’ll destroy the Ling Tian Sect and kill everyone!”
“Of course, you could choose to desert the Ling Tian Sect before that… Once you leave, you’ll be able to escape death,” Han Jing continued saying.
The group of people from the Ling Tian Sect looked at each other, but no one wanted to be the one who stood out.
“I forgot to introduce myself. I’m Han Jing from the Ancient Han Clan. Naturally, I’m just a nobody at the Han Clan.” Noticing that no one bothered, Han Jing squinted his eyes as the Origin Energy in his body stirred and caused the Heaven and Earth Energy in the void above to surge. A Heaven and Earth Phenomenon formed in the blink of an eye.
An ancient black dragon’s silhouette in addition to the silhouettes of 2,000 ancient horned dragons gradually appeared.
“Ninth Level Martial Monarch stage!” Listening to the old man’s introduction and then witnessing the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon formed by the Heaven and Earth Energy that the old man’s Origin Energy ignited, the expressions of many changed dramatically.
The group of Ling Tian Sect senior officials including both the Vice Sect Leaders, Luo Ping and Zhang San, had extremely gloomy expressions.
They never thought that the old man would turn out to be a Han Clan powerhouse and a Ninth Level Martial Monarch stage martial artist.
The cultivation base of a Ninth Level Martial Monarch stage martial artist was apparent, and the Profundity he comprehended would not be weak as well.
Ignoring the identity of the old man, his strength alone was sufficient to render the current Ling Tian Sect helpless.
Ever since their Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian, had left, the Ling Tian Sect had no other powerhouse who was strong enough. The reason the sect still existed that day was due to their Sect Leader’s fame acting as a deterrent.
Naturally, the fact that Duan Ling Tian had disappeared was not spread widely, so not many people knew about their state of helplessness.
However, now there was someone who was not afraid of their Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian, and had come to threaten to destroy the Ling Tian Sect!
“Senior Han, our Sect Leader left the sect a while ago. He hasn’t returned.” Zhang San took a deep breath and looked at Han Jing anxiously.
“Duan Ling Tian isn’t around?” Han Jing lifted his eyebrows and then squinted his eyes. “If that’s the case, I’ll give you all another ten breaths… After that, I’ll kill all those who haven’t deserted the Ling Tian Sect to stand behind me.” As Han Jing spoke, the killing intent in his eyes was firm.
It seemed to support his statement. The milky-white flames on his body were entwined with powers of various colors in the blink of an eye. Soon, the flames also instantly transformed into various colors.
Under everyone’s watchful eyes, a broader Heaven and Earth Energy appeared and formed into an even more terrifying Heaven and Earth Phenomenon in the void above Han Jing.
In the blink of an eye, five ancient black dragons’ silhouettes in addition to 6,000 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes appeared in the void above Han Jing. It was the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon before Han Jing utilized his spirit weapon.
Once he utilized his spirit weapon and exerted his full strength, his strength definitely exceeded the force of six ancient black dragons in addition to 6,000 ancient horned dragons.
At once, the pupils of many Ling Tian Sect members shrunk and shock was apparent on their faces.
Sou! Sou! Sou!
Soon, many people bit the bullet and flew out to stand behind Han Jing.
Those people were the grade one weapons craftsmen and grade one alchemists who had joined the Ling Tian Sect earlier. They already had the intention of leaving the Ling Tian Sect, and now that a powerhouse like Han Jing had forced them, it was only a matter of time that they did so.
Seeing all the grade one weapons craftsmen and grade one alchemists apart from himself and another person leave in such a short while, Zhang San’s face darkened as he scolded, “You all… You are all ungrateful!”
“Vice Sect Leader Zhang, I’d advise you to come over with us… The Sect Leader has been missing for more than half a year. We don’t even know if he’s coming back.” Some of them who stood behind Han Jing persuaded Zhang San.
“What?! Sect Leader is missing?”
For a time, there was a commotion among most of the Ling Tian Sect elders and disciples. Their faces changed dramatically as it was their first time hearing that news.

Their Sect Leader had been missing for half a year?
At once, they did not hesitate anymore and hurried behind Han Jing.
In a short while, only a handful of people remained opposite Han Jing
