Chapter 1349: Invincible To All Powerhouses Below Mortal Shedding Stage
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The Sword Dao contained in the word ‘Sword’ had attracted Ke’er, Li Fei, and Sima’s attention. They were completely immersed in it. It was as though they were intoxicated.
Above the canyon and the big green tree, an inconspicuous little pagoda was erected above a dried branch.
This little pagoda was none other than Duan Ling Tian’s Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
Duan Ling Tian who was cultivating at the first level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda suddenly jolted awake.
During this period of time, he had been quietly comprehending the Fused Profundity. Apart from that, he had also looked at the word ‘Sword’. However, the word no longer imparted complicated and obscure message into his mind. Due to this reason, he could no longer store the Sword Dao contained in the word ‘Sword’ in his mind.
“Don’t tell me it’s because I’ve already comprehended the Ninth Level Emperor Stage Sword Profundity? But this doesn’t seem right… According to the message left behind by Feng Qing Yang the Sword Saint, those who manage to fully comprehend the Sword Dao in the word ‘Sword’ that he left behind will be able to roam freely in the Dao Martial Saint Land.” After trying for a few days, Duan Ling Tian did not find any solution at all. In the end, he could only give up and focus on comprehending the Fused Profundity.
In just four months, Duan Ling Tian had two breakthroughs in the Fused Profundity.
The first time, he made a breakthrough to the Ninth Level Monarch Stage Fused Profundity from the Eighth Level Monarch Stage Fused Profundity.
The Ninth Level Monarch Stage Fused Profundity was equivalent to the Ninth Level Emperor Stage Profundity. Once it was cast, the strength was so powerful that it was equivalent to the strength of ten ancient black dragons.
The second time, his Ninth Level Monarch Stage Fused Profundity made a breakthrough to the First Level Emperor Stage Fused Profundity.
As for its strength, it was now 100% stronger than before.
It was equivalent to the strength of twenty ancient black dragons.
“The First Level Emperor Stage Fused Profundity that I comprehended is ten times stronger compared to an ordinary First Level Emperor Stage Profundity… When I comprehend the Ninth Level Emperor Stage Fused Profundity, it has to be ten times stronger compared to an ordinary Ninth Level Emperor Stage Profundity as well!” An ordinary Ninth Level Emperor Stage Profundity was equivalent to the strength of ten ancient black dragons. This was similar to Duan Ling Tian’s Ninth Level Emperor Stage Sword Profundity.
And once Duan Ling Tian had comprehended the Ninth Level Emperor Stage Fused Profundity, the strength contained inside would be equivalent to 100 ancient black dragons.
The strength of 100 ancient black dragons…
What kind of concept was that actually?
‘Even if a powerhouse at the peak of the Martial Emperor Stage uses a Royal Grade Spirit Weapon and unleashes his full strength, it’ll only be equivalent to the strength of sixty or seventy ancient black dragons which is considered very astounding.’ Duan Ling Tian’s heart jolted when he thought about this.
‘As for me, once I’ve comprehended the Ninth Level Emperor Stage Fused Profundity, just by using it alone is enough for me to kill anyone at the peak of the Martial Emperor Stage,’ he thought to himself as his breathing quickened
Killing a powerhouse at the peak of the Martial Emperor Stage who had unleashed his full strength with just one Profundity… Just thinking about this sent chills running up Duan Ling Tian’s spine.
“I’ve only comprehended the First Level Emperor Stage Fused Profundity. There’s still a long way to go before I comprehend the Ninth Level Emperor Stage Fused Profundity.” Duan Ling Tian quickly calmed himself down.
Even then, he did not remain calm for very long when he thought of another matter, ‘If I can merge the Ninth Level Emperor Stage Fused Profundity with my body and open the Saint Vein, the effects will definitely be better. I wonder when I break through to the Mortal Shedding Stage, how many Saint Veins will I be able to open… I’m really looking forward to that.’
Duan Ling Tian still remembered the things Xue Nai told him previously. According to her, Martial and Dao Cultivators from the Mortal Continents had a much stronger foundation compared to the natives of the Dao Martial Saint Land… Their cultivation base would accumulate with time, and by the time they break through to the Mortal Shedding Stage, it would explode beyond control.
“Four months?” Duan Ling Tian was shocked when he learned from Elder Huo that he had been cultivating for four months. “It has actually been so long? Ke’er and Little Fei’er must be awake now!”
“Four months inside the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda are equal to two months outside,” Elder Huo who sat cross-legged nearby reminded him when he saw him standing up in haste.
“Oh, yeah! I forgot.” Duan Ling Tian smiled awkwardly. He finally remembered that time inside the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda flowed differently from the outside world. Two days inside were equivalent to one day outside.
Since Duan Ling Tian missed the two girls, he left the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda with just a thought.
When he noticed Ke’er, Li Fei, and Sima had still not awakened, he shook his head. “Judging from their current condition, I’m afraid I’ll still have to wait for a while.”
After glancing at the side of the canyon, Duan Ling Tian discovered Feng Wu Dao eyes were closed as he attained mental composure. He did not bother him and entered the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda again.
“Elder Huo, let me know when six months have passed,” Duan Ling Tian said to Elder Huo before he sat down cross-legged to cultivate again.
From his observation earlier, Duan Ling Tian could tell the two girls would need some time before they would awaken. This awakening would only be their first awakening.
He had told them once they had awakened for the first time, they would need to familiarize themselves with the benefit from the word ‘Sword’ before they memorized the Sword Dao contained in the word so they could comprehend it in the future.
This was similar to what he did previously.
Only when they had fully memorized the Sword Dao contained in the word ‘Sword’ would he bring them away from here.
Naturally, this applied to Sima as well.
Due to this reason, Duan Ling Tian estimated the three of them would need at least several months to complete these two steps.
Duan Ling Tian continued to immerse himself in his cultivation. He fully devoted himself to comprehending the Fused Profundity… The Emperor Stage Nature Profundity Fragments depleted quickly in his hands.
With every ten or fifteen days, an Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment would shatter.
If somebody saw this, they would definitely find this wasteful and call Duan Ling Tian a spendthrift.
However, all these were nothing to Duan Ling Tian.
When he was in Half Moon Island, Di Yong the former Island Master of Half Moon Island had absorbed the vital essence of powerhouses at their prime using Devil Technique and turned them into dried corpses.
Some of the powerhouses had left behind Emperor Stage Profundity Fragments.
After they died, the Profundity Fragments in their bodies had all been taken by Duan Ling Tian.
Due to this reason, Duan Ling Tian could afford using so many Emperor Stage Profundity Fragments.
If it was someone else, that person would most likely have a headache right now.
The path to comprehending the Fused Profundity was like a bottomless abyss… Initially, the Emperor Stage Nature Profundity Fragments depleted at the speed of one fragment every two weeks. However, in the end, it became one fragment every ten days.
As time went on, it became one fragment every eight, seven, six, and five days.
When the Emperor Stage Nature Profundity Fragment began to shatter every three days, Elder Huo called out to Duan Ling Tian.
“Six months have passed so quickly?” Duan Ling Tian asked in confusion when he woke up. To him, it felt like only a few days had passed.
“Three months have gone by outside,” Elder Huo reminded him.
“Three months… Looks like it’s about time…” Duan Ling Tian chuckled before leaving the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda again… This time, after he left, he shrank the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda and threw it into his ears before he rose up into the air.
He was in an extremely good mood.
After comprehending for six months, his Fused Profundity had taken another two leaps forward. Currently, he had successfully comprehended the Third Level Emperor Stage Fused Profundity.
“They’re going to wake up soon.” After looking at Ke’er, Li Fei, and Sima, Duan Ling Tian could tell they had almost fully memorized the Sword Dao contained in the word ‘Sword’ since he had experienced it before.
Duan Ling Tian soared up into the air, and a soundless wave swept out before it propelled him upward like a rocket.
After reaching a certain height, a five-colored flame burst out from Duan Ling Tian’s body and emitted waves of ferocious aura. It was the Fused Profundity!
As the five-colored flamed soared up above Duan Ling Tian’s head, the Heaven and Earth Energy whirled and set off a series of thunderous sounds.
Soon after, the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon began to solidify into form.
46 silhouettes of ancient black dragons spiraled as they descended vividly in an overbearing manner.
‘With the strength I currently possessed… Even if I don’t use the Saint Grade Martial Tactic, I can easily defeat a powerhouse at the peak of the Martial Emperor Stage providing they did not cultivate the Saint Grade Martial Tactic!’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as his eyes shone, ‘If I use my Saint Grade Martial Tactic, I’m basically almost invincible against all those below the Mortal Shedding Stage!”
Duan Ling Tian was very confident about this.
Naturally, he was being conservative that was why used the word ‘almost’.
In his opinion, unless there was a powerhouse at the peak of the Void who had cultivated a technique in the Human Rank Primitive Saint Grade Martial Tactic to the highest stage, nobody was his opponent at all.
It was almost impossible for a powerhouse at the peak of the Martial Emperor Stage to meet those conditions.
“What a marvelous world… No! What a marvelous planet! Only Cloud Continent and the surrounding sea region allows the Heaven and Earth Energy to consolidate into the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon. Once we leave the surrounding region of Cloud Continent and arrive overseas, the Heaven and Earth Energy won’t consolidate into the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon at all no matter how strong one is,” Duan Ling Tian mused emotionally.
Casting everything aside, just this fact alone was amazing enough.
Just as Duan Ling Tian had predicted, Ke’er, Little Fei’er, and Sima began to wake up one by one a few days later.
Their strength had more or less been raised.
Duan Ling Tian prepared to bring them back to the Cloud Continent’s Inner Land and to the new site of Ling Tian Sect… He had only heard about the new site from Han Xue Nai, he had not been there before.
“Uncle Feng, leave with us!” Duan Ling Tian motioned to Feng Wu Dao. “In the next period of time, I’ll be making preparations to move Ling Tian Sect to Half Moon Island in the Overseas Saint Islands… The cultivation environment there is much better.”
Feng Wu Dao had heard of Duan Ling Tian’s achievement on Cloud Continent. He had also learned that the cultivation environment in Half Moon Island was very good.
Due to this reason, he agreed to leave together with Duan Ling Tian.
“However, who’s going to protect this canyon if I leave? Er Hu’s not here as well,” Feng Wu Dao asked.
