Chapter 1321: Dao Cultivator
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Counting from half a month ago, Duan Ling Tian had been on Half Moon Island for two months now.
During that two months, he did not stay idle.
In addition to entering the Third Level Martial Emperor Stage and comprehending the Sixth Level Emperor Stage Sword Profundity, he also managed to cultivate the Body and Arrow Synchronization from the Saint Grade Martial Tactic and the Colossal Aerolite Arrow to the Fundamental Awareness Stage.
He had also made great progress with the Aerolite Strike. According to Wang Ba’s estimation, it was close to reaching the Elementary Stage.
The Saint Grade Martial Tactic’s techniques were divided into five stages: the Fundamental Awareness Stage, Elementary Stage, Competent Stage, Proficient Stage, and Impeccable Stage.
Every stage was a world of a difference from one another.
Apart from that, Duan Ling Tian also tried to cultivate the other two offensive techniques of Colossal Aerolite Arrow; the Aerolite Shower and Sound of Death.
Although he had not cultivated them to the Fundamental Awareness Stage, he could already use them.
With Duan Ling Tian’s current strength, it was easy for him to kill Martial Emperor You Han, the master of You Han Valley and also one of the top three Martial Emperors on Cloud Continent.
After killing Martial Emperor You Han and collecting the loot, Duan Ling Tian did not continue to cultivate. Instead, he turned to leave.
However, he heard a burst of noises from afar soon after he began his journey. It seemed like someone was fighting.
“I’ll go and have a look.”
Duan Ling Tian did not have any matter to attend to at the moment so he followed the noise to see what was happening. “I wonder who’s fighting… They’re causing quite a scene.”
He got closer and closer to the sound. Soon after, two individuals appeared in front of Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Several bolts of lightning struck from the sky. It looked like a net made of lightning as it fell and shrouded one of them. Some parts of his robe were burned by the lightning, causing him to look like a drowned rat.
“Wang Yu?” Duan Ling Tian recognized the figure in just a glance. It was Martial Emperor Qing Xuan’s direct disciple, Wang Yu.
He was the Variant with the Soul Attack innate ability.
He still remembered him and Wang Yu had competed for the No.1 spot in the Hidden Fog Martial Competition back on Hidden Fog Island.
At that time, he broke Wang Yu’s innate ability with his Saint Grade Martial Tactic, Colossal Aerolite Arrow, and his Spiritual Energy. That was how he defeated him.
Until now, only a handful of people understood how he had broken Wang Yu’s innate ability with an arrow in that battle.
“That’s… A Dao Cultivator?” Soon after, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze landed on Wang Yu’s opponent. A green-clad youth stood there with his hands wide open.
Several bolts of lightning struck following his movements.
“Utilizing the Heaven and Earth Energy and Nature Energy to defeat his opponent… That’s a Dao Cultivator’s move?” Duan Ling Tian exclaimed.
“Finally! Wang Yu’s not holding back his strength anymore.”
Duan Ling Tian was moved. His eyes were filled with expectation when he saw a black lotus appeared before it flew toward the green-clad youth.
Wang Yu finally used his killing shot.
Duan Ling Tian could tell that Wang Yu was completely suppressed by his opponent’s bolts of lightning. He could not find any chance to get close to his opponent to attack him. If this continued, there was no doubt he would lose the fight.
The black lotus was blocked by a quick-moving gold flash as it flew out.
In just a blink of an eye, the gold flash dimmed before it was destroyed by the black lotus and continued on its trajectory toward the green-clad youth.
At this moment, two, three, and four gold flashes appeared in succession… They glided across the sky and headed straight for the black lotus. It was as though they would not rest until the black lotus was destroyed.
“Spiritual Energy Attack!” Duan Ling Tian could see that it was the Dao Cultivator’s Spiritual Energy Attack. It was also a Soul Attack.
Although it would not destroy Wang Yu’s innate ability, the black lotus, the continuous release of Soul Attack would deplete most of the black lotus’ energy and would weaken its power.
Eventually, the black lotus entered the green-clad youth’s body.
However, he merely trembled. It seemed like he was not really affected by it.
‘This Dao Cultivator’s Spiritual Energy is very strong… At the very least, he’s at the Fourth Level Martial Emperor Stage.” Duan Ling Tian spotted the anomaly in the youth.
Due to that reason, the Dao Cultivator could continuously use his Spiritual Energy Attack to deplete most of the black lotus’ power and let it integrate with him after its energy was depleted.
At that time, the black lotus would not have enough energy to injure his soul, let alone destroy it.
“How’s this possible?!” Wang Yu’s expression changed dramatically.
He did not expect his usually invincible innate ability would lose twice in a row.
First, it was destroyed by Duan Ling Tian. Today, it was destroyed by that Dao Cultivator.
“Innate ability? It’s nothing to shout about! If I’m not mistaken… You’re supposed to be the most outstanding direct disciple of the strongest powerhouse on Cloud Continent right?”
The Dao Cultivator with unknown background sneered. “It seems like the people from Cloud Continent are just… a group of trash!”
“Hm?” Duan Ling Tian frowned as his face sank.
Duan Ling Tian was finally going to intervene when he saw Wang Yu’s aura was weakening and it probably would not take long before the Dao Cultivator killed him.
Put aside the fact that he could not just look on because Wang Yu was Martial Emperor Qing Xuan’s direct disciple and that Xuen Nai was acquainted with Martial Emperor Qing Xuan, the Dao Cultivator’s words had enraged him!
People from Cloud Continent were trash?
He, Duan Ling Tian, was from Cloud Continent.
Let’s give it a try then.
A short-lived but piercing sound of wind whistling tore through the sky, alerting Wang Yu and the green-clad youth.
Before both of them could react, the air stirred and a sudden burst of light swept out accompanied by the sharp sound of wind whistling in the air.
Xiu! Xiu! Xiu! Xiu! Xiu!
A sky full of arrows rained down like a meteor shower. The arrows caused turbulence in its wake. Soon after, it destroyed the bolts of lightning.
The bolts of lightning were destroyed. This meant that the green-clad youth’s Dao method had backfired because it was broken. He shuddered before he spat out a mouthful of blood. His face was pale.
The green-clad youth’s expression changed dramatically. He stared at Wang Yu as he shouted, “Who’s that?!”
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian appeared in front of Wang Yu and calmly stared at the green-clad youth. He said softly, “Dao Cultivator? It’s nothing to shout about.”
“Duan Ling Tian!” Duan Ling Tian’s appearance made Wang Yu’s eyes brightened, and he hurriedly thanked him.
At the same time, he heaved a sigh of relief.
He knew that his life was saved.
“Duan Ling Tian?” The Dao Cultivator was stunned when he heard Wang Yu’s words. “You… You’re the one who placed first in the Hidden Fog Martial Competition?”
Obviously, he had heard of Duan Ling Tian’s name before.
Before Duan Ling Tian could respond, Wang Yu said mockingly, “Not only is he ranked No.1 in the Hidden Fog Martial Competition, but he’s also from Cloud Continent… The people you referred to as trash!”
“Since you said people from Cloud Continent are trash… I don’t think you’ll mind fighting trash like me right?”
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes remained as calm as before. “However, if you’re defeated… It means you’re even worse than trash!”
The green-clad youth’s expression turned ghastly as Duan Ling Tian stared at him.
When he recalled how easily the sky full of arrow rays had broken his Dao method, he knew very well that the strength of that person before him had far surpassed him.
The green-clad youth snorted, and he thought of retreating. However, he glared at Duan Ling Tian before he left. “Duan Ling Tian, you’re No.1 in the Hidden Fog Martial Competition… Your opponent should be the no.1 in our Coral Martial Competition.”
“When I return, I’ll tell Senior Brother Luo about the challenge you issued to Coral Island… You just wait! It won’t be long before Senior Brother Luo pays you a visit.”
When the green-clad youth spoke, he enunciated the words ‘Pay you a visit’.
It was obvious he planned to fabricate rumors and create conflict between Duan Ling Tian and the Senior Brother Luo he mentioned.
“This Senior Brother Luo you mentioned is No.1 in your Coral Martial Competition?” Duan Ling Tian asked faintly.
He did not care if the green-clad youth was planning to fabricate rumors and create a conflict.
“That’s right.” The green-clad youth had a smug expression on his face.
“He’s also a Dao Cultivator like you?” Duan Ling Tian asked again.
“Yes. What are you asking for?” The green-clad youth asked with a frown.
“If he’s not a Dao Cultivator, I would’ve asked you to stay and fight with me… We don’t have Dao Cultivators on Cloud Continent, and I’ve wanted to fight with a Dao Cultivator for quite some time now.”
There was a glint in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes when he grinned. “However, if the Senior Brother Luo you mentioned is also a Dao Cultivator, then I’m no longer interested in fighting you… After all, you’re just too weak. There won’t be a sense of accomplishment when I beat you.”
The green-clad youth’s face changed when he saw how Duan Ling Tian looked down on him. He said in a deep voice, “Rest assured! Senior Brother Luo will grant you your wishes!”
“I only hope that you’ll still be able to laugh at that time.” the green-clad youth said before he turned to leave.
When he was about to leave, his figure became more distinct as he was surrounded by green astral wind. It seemed as though he was flying with the wind.
“First, he summoned bolts of lightning, and now, he’s riding the wind… Dao method is really different from martial skills,” Duan Ling Tian muttered when he saw this.
“Duan Ling Tian, I’ve heard of that person who ranked No.1 in the Coral Martial Competition… His name’s Luo Feng Zhu. He’s the direct disciple of the First Island Master of Coral Island. His strength isn’t any weaker than most of the Coral Island’s elders.”
Wang Yu said, “Moreover, during the last martial competition in Coral Island, apart from the participants from Coral Island… There were also a lot of people from Red Lotus Continent who had participated since it’s located near Coral Island.”
“To be able to rank No.1 in such a martial competition, you can imagine what Luo Feng Zhu’s strength is like… You have to be prepared,” Wang Yu reminded Duan Ling Tian when he saw the battle intent in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
“Don’t worry.” Duan Ling Tian nodded as his eyes glinted.
He was looking forward to the battle with the person who ranked No.1 in the Coral Martial Competition. “Luo Feng Zhu is it? I hope you won’t let me down…”
