Chapter 1356: The Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda’s Second Level
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Hurmph!” At the moment when Di Yong took over the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda, an ancient voice echoed in his mind, thoroughly shocking him.
“Who are you?” Di Yong’s face turned solemn immediately.
“I’m the Three-legged Golden Crow, the pagoda spirit of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda,” the ancient voice echoed in his mind.
Upon hearing that, Di Yong’s eyes lit up instantly as he looked at the exquisite small tower in his hand intently. “So it’s called the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.”
Long before the ancient voice echoed in his mind, Di Yong’s Spiritual Energy that was locked on Duan Ling Tian had already begun to ease up.
Now that the Three-legged Golden Crow had begun to talk, Di Yong’s attention was fully focused on the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
Even he did not realize he had unknowingly withdrawn the Spiritual Energy he had locked on Duan Ling Tian.
“Now!” When Di Yong was looking at the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda in his hand, the ancient voice entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears and alerted him.
In that instant, a stone tablet that lacked a corner appeared in his hand. It was none other than the Devilseal Tablet.
The moment the Devilseal Tablet was in his hand, killing intent shot out of Duan Ling Tian’s eyes. He gripped the tablet and smashed it down on Di Yong’s head immediately. Rolling energy immediately surged out of the tablet.
“SHIT!” Di Yong finally snapped back to reality when he heard the sound of wind whistling by his ears. Horror dawned on his face when he realized he had made a grave mistake.
He actually withdrew the Spiritual Energy that was locked on Duan Ling Tian when he was distracted by the pagoda spirit in the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
Let alone making his move, Di Yong did not even have time to turn his head when the energy from the Devilseal Tablet enveloped him.
Duan Ling Tian held the Devilseal Tablet in his hand and smashed it on Di Yong’s head with all his might. Tyrannical black energy instantly swept into Di Yong’s body as though it was crushing dried leaves.
“NOOOOOO!” At that instant, a shrill cry left Di Yong’s mouth. His body trembled before he dropped to the ground like a dead dog.
His soul was sealed by the Devilseal Tablet and had shattered into dust!
“Idiot!” Duan Ling Tian took the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda back as he glanced coldly at Di Yong’s body. At the same time, he said to the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda, “Thank you, Elder Huo.”
If he did not have Elder Huo’s cooperation, he would have been killed by Di Yong even if he managed to take out the Devilseal Tablet.
“This stone tablet is not bad,” Elder Huo complimented the Devilseal Tablet before he quickly changed the topic. “Take his dragon orb out… With his dragon orb, I’ll be able to complete repairing the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.”
Elder Huo’s words made Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up immediately. “That’s right. I almost forgot about it… The dragon orb in a five-clawed Devil Dragon is an item that can fix the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.”
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian looked at Di Yong who had reverted to his true form. A five-clawed Divine Devil Dragon that was 100 meters long lay on the ground soundlessly.
“It’s better to take his entire body inside. Although he’s only a five-clawed divine dragon, his entire body is still a treasure for you,” Elder Huo piped up.
Duan Ling Tian nodded before taking the five-clawed Devil Dragon into the first level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda. He then took the dragon orb out and passed it to Elder Huo.
The instant Elder Huo took hold of the dragon orb, he went straight to work.
“This is a true divine dragon! Its entire body is a treasure… Oh, yeah! Dragon tendon!” Duan Ling Tian’s mind jolted when he was studying the five-clawed divine dragon from top to bottom. In just a few moments, he managed to strip the dragon tendon from the five-clawed Devil Dragon.
“This is the dragon tendon from a true divine dragon!” Seeing the completely black dragon tendon that was emitting a black light, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes brightened. “The dragon tendon of a five-clawed divine dragon is not something that can be compared to the dragon tendon from a Wyrmdragon.”
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian took out his Royal Grade Spirit Archery Set and tore off the Wyrmdragon’s dragon tendon before replacing it with the dragon tendon that was freshly removed from the five-clawed Devil Dragon.
“Now that I’ve replaced it with a five-clawed Devil Dragon’s dragon tendon, the bow’s power will be much stronger now!” Duan Ling Tian smiled as he pulled at his new bowstring. The bowstring was extremely hard. He only managed to pull it a little even after he had exerted all his strength.
If one did not look carefully, one would not even notice the arch the bowstring made as Duan Ling Tian pulled it.
“As expected from the dragon tendon of a five-clawed divine dragon. I’ve used all of my strength, and I only managed to pull this much.” Not only was Duan Ling Tian not disappointed, but he also felt excited. He knew the bow in his hand was finally a Royal Grade Spirit Weapon now.
Duan Ling Tian was still caught up in his excitement of obtaining the dragon tendon of a five-clawed Devil Dragon when he suddenly felt a tremor on the hand that was holding the bow and the bowstring before he heard the crisp sound of something snapping.
When he returned to his senses, he was shocked to find that the bow had snapped into two.
“T-This…” Upon seeing this, Duan Ling Tian was dumbfounded. The five-claw Devil Dragon’s dragon tendon had snapped his bow into half?
This bow was a freaking Royal Grade Spirit Weapon!
The Royal Grade Spirit Weapon on Cloud Continent was equivalent to the Human Rank Mediocre Saint Weapon of the Dao Martial Saint Land… The Human Rank Mediocre Saint Weapon had just been snapped into half by the five-clawed Devil Dragon’s dragon tendon?
At this time, Duan Ling Tian finally learned just how frightening the dragon tendon of the five-clawed Devil Dragon was.
‘It looks like I’ll need a much stronger bow if I want to use this dragon tendon as the bowstring… The bow at the Human Rank Mediocre Saint Weapon level is just not enough,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
When Duan Ling Tian was staring intently at the five-clawed Devil Dragon’s dragon tendon in his hand, his fondness for it growing, he felt a sudden tremor beneath his feet. It was the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda! It felt as though an earthquake had just taken place.
At the same time, Elder Huo’s voice echoed and woke Duan Ling Tian up, “The second level is open now.”
He turned around to look in the distance. Elder Huo who was standing at the end of the stairs motioned to him, and he quickly went up to the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
“It’s fixed?” Upon seeing this, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up.
‘The five-clawed Devil Dragon’s dragon orb is indeed extraordinary,’ Duan Ling Tian mused inwardly as he followed Elder Huo and successfully climbed up to the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
“What a rich Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy.” When Duan Ling Tian arrived at the second level, he could instantly feel the Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy in the air of the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda was a lot denser compared to the first floor. They were at completely different levels.
“The cultivation environment of the second floor of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda is much better than the first level. Time passes by much slower here. Over here, three days inside is equivalent to a day outside,” Elder Huo explained to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Elder Huo, where’s the Jasper Celestial Sword?” Duan Ling Tian remembered the Celestial Supreme Treasure that Elder Huo had mentioned previously. The Celestial Supreme Treasure, Jasper Celestial Sword, was hidden on the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
Duan Ling Tian studied the surrounding. He could see the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda was much better compared to the first level.
Not only were there plants and flowers, but there was a spacious courtyard as well.
There was a pool in the courtyard, and its surrounding was covered by grass. The grass was overgrown since nobody was here to tend it.
When Duan Ling Tian was about to trim the grass, he noticed Elder Huo had already made his move. Elder Huo appeared idle as a fiery-red light blade swept out.
After the light blade swept out, it continued to grow bigger and swept across the entire courtyard, trimming the overgrown grass in the courtyard.
In just a flash, the ambiance of the courtyard changed completely.
Meanwhile, a standalone stone table materialized before Duan Ling Tian eyes. Earlier, the stone table was fully hidden by the grass so he did not notice its presence at all.
“T-That sword… I-It’s the Jasper Celestial Sword?” With just a glance, Duan Ling Tian saw two items lying on the stone table. One of the two items was a sheathed long sword.
The sword handle and the sheath of the long sword had an ordinary appearance. It made the sword appear ordinary as well.
However, Duan Ling Tian knew this was no ordinary sword. It was most probably the Jasper Celestial Sword, the Celestial Supreme Treasure of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
“This is the Jasper Celestial Sword.” When Duan Ling Tian flew out to stand before the stone table, Elder Huo’s sound echoed in Duan Ling Tian’s ear, causing his emotions to stir. A smile appeared on his face, and his eyes shone brilliantly.
Without any hesitation, Duan Ling Tian reached out to take the Jasper Celestial Sword. “This is a Celestial Sword… Now that I have this, I think even someone at the Mortal Shedding Stage person would find it hard to block my attack right?”
However, the smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face turned frozen soon after.
He discovered that he could not lift the Jasper Celestial Sword at all. It was lying soundlessly on the stone table as though it was rooted there. It did not move an inch at all.
After trying for a little while, the Jasper Celestial Sword still remained unmoved. He was left with no choice but to ask Elder Huo who standing at the side, “Elder Huo, what’s going on?”
“Your strength is too weak. It’s natural that you can’t lift the Jasper Celestial Sword,” Elder Huo replied.
“Elder Huo, you mean… this Jasper Celestial Sword is very heavy?” Duan Ling Tian asked, his eyes as wide as saucers.
“Yes.” Elder Huo nodded. With a raise of his hand, he gripped the Jasper Celestial Sword.
This time, the Jasper Celestial Sword finally moved. Still, it only moved a slight inch before Elder Huo put it down. Beads of sweat already began to form on his forehead.
“I’ve never been so weak before in my entire life.” Elder Huo sighed out loud.
He was the Three-legged Golden Crow, a Variant in the Yan Huang Land. From the moment he was born, he was gifted with divine strength that could conquer and transform nature. With just a spread of his wings, he could cast a flame that was capable of burning everything in the world.
However, currently, he could not even lift up a Celestial Sword.
“It’s such a heavy sword… How long will I have to wait before I can use it?!” Duan Ling Tian smiled wryly.
There was a Celestial Supreme Treasure before him, but he could not use it at all. At this moment, only Duan Ling Tian alone understood his own feelings.
After taking a deep breath, Duan Ling Tian reluctantly tore his eyes away from the Jasper Celestial Sword and shifted his gaze to the other item beside the Jasper Celestial Sword… The second he saw this item, his eyes brightened immediately.
“Bow!” The item that appeared before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes was a bow. It was a shabby-looking bow without a bowstring. The bow had ten dents on it, and its appearance was as shabby as trash.
However, Duan Ling Tian knew that this bow was not an ordinary item if it was placed alongside the Jasper Celestial Sword.
