Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
‘Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage!’ Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
After using the Divine Eye, he immediately identified the cultivation base of that hideous middle-aged man in gray in front of him.
His opponent was a Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage powerhouse!
“He’s the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage bandit.” While looking at the middle-aged man in gray, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes were laced with wariness.
“Do you have the strength to even want all of us to die here!?” Zheng Jian sneered.
At that moment, Zheng Jian’s attention was fixated on the gray-clad man. He totally did not notice that Xiong Hu and Jin Yuan Bao’s faces had become serious as if they knew they faced a powerful enemy.
Even Sun Ge’s eagerness fizzled out after looking at both their expressions.
“I’ll let you see my strength now!” With a vicious smile, the man in gray disappeared from his spot like a gust of wind without any movement. When he reappeared, he was already in front of Zheng Jian.
“Lightning fast!” His speed was so quick that it everyone gaped incredulously.
A little whirlpool appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s left pupil after he utilized the Strange Pupil. He felt that he had depleted less than half of his spiritual energy to capture the moving figure of the middle-aged man in gray.
The amount of spiritual energy he consumed at that moment was almost comparable to the amount of spiritual energy he had consumed throughout the journey.
‘Is that the speed of a Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage?” Duan Ling Tian’s heart trembled.
In addition to opening up more Saint Veins and having a ridiculously large Qi Sea, the amount of True Energy contained by a person on the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage was not comparable to someone on the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage, let alone someone on the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage.
The True Energy in the body of a Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage martial cultivator which was exerted could reach an extremely terrifying stage regardless of its strength or speed.
Duan Ling Tian had discovered that during the battle between Ling Yun and Su Qi yesterday.
‘I’m afraid that the strength of this Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage bandit would be above Ling Yun’s!’ Duan Ling Tian came up with a shocking conclusion after comparing the bandit and Ling Yun who ranked No. 1 among the Thirteen Gangsters.
Maybe it was difficult for his old self to differentiate that, but now, he had the Strange Pupil, so he could easily discover that after utilizing it.
Zheng Jian’s face changed dramatically.
He never expected that the middle-aged man in gray would arrive in front of him the minute after he finished his sentence.
Then, he also looked terrified as he guessed his opponent’s cultivation base. “Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage.”
Instantly, the True Energy on his feet surged as he planned to escape by exerting a movement technique.
However, he noticed his opponent’s hand hurtling towards him like a cattail leaf fan when he moved. It was so fast that he could not avoid it.
At that moment, Zheng Jian looked desperate.
A loud blast sounded along with vast airwaves which made everyone’s robes flutter.
In the next moment, everyone saw it.
A silver figure appeared in front of Zheng Jian. It was a middle-aged man in silver armor who blocked the palm attack from the gray-clad man.
The 36 Guardians who were behind Zheng Jian had finally appeared at that crucial moment and saved his life.
The gray-clad man trembled and looked at the silver-armored man gloomily. “The 36 Guardians of the City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City? Didn’t your City Governor’s Estate ask us to attack those that enter the valley? Why did you intervene?”
“You attacking them is your business. Protecting them is mine… Master City Governor said that if you can eliminate all of them, then you’ll be allowed to live.”
After coolly glancing at the gray-clad man, the silver-armored man looked towards Zheng Jian and announced, “You’re eliminated.”
Zheng Jian’s expression was clouded, but he could not do anything else apart from turning around to leave with the middle-aged man in silver.
As he was leaving, he did not forget to turn his head around and glare at Duan Ling Tian fiercely.
“Treating me as a litmus test?” At that time, the gray-clad man finally came to his senses. The City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City had treated him as a litmus test.
“You guys are from the Latent Dragon Camp of the City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City, aren’t you?” After he regained his senses, he glanced at Duan Ling Tian and the others to ask in a deep voice.
“Hmph! I could guess that without an answer from you lot.” After snorting, he continued saying, “Although I won’t be able to kill all of you, none of you should hope to pass through this level. I will eliminate all of you!” As he spoke, strong self-confidence exuded from his eyes.
Having heard what the gray-clad man said, Jin Yuan Bao instantly changed his stance dramatically as he yelled out loudly, “Everyone, we must join hands now!”
Currently, regardless of Jin Yuan Bao, Xiong Hu, or Sun Ge, all of them had confirmed that the cultivation base of their threat was on the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage.
Facing a Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage powerhouse, none of them would be able to match him.
They would only stand a chance if they joined hands.
“Join hands?” The man in gray could not help but smirk when he heard Jin Yuan Bao’s words. Then, he disappeared before Xiong Hu, Jin Yuan Bao, Sun Ge, Guo Li, and Zhu Lang.
Duan Ling Tian utilized his Strange Pupil which enabled him to barely capture the gray-clad man’s figure. In the blink of an eye, the man arrived in front of Jin Yuan Bao and used his palm.
The True Energy on the Saint Weapon Gloves surged and transformed into a solid palm print which was about to land on Jin Yuan Bao.
Another middle-aged man in silver appeared and blocked the palm attack from the man. It was one of the 36 Guardians.
The silver-clad man looked towards Jin Yuan Bao and announced coolly, “Eliminated.”
Jin Yuan Bao looked feeble and there was a bitter smile on his face. His opponent was so fast that he could not have reacted at all.
Although he knew that the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage powerhouse was strong, he did not expect him to be that powerful.
He arrived in front of him in the blink of an eye.
After Jin Yuan Bao was eliminated, several other neutral voices sounded as well. Zhu Lang, Guo Li, Sun Ge, and Xiong Hu were eliminated consecutively.
Among the four of them, only Xiong Hu managed to resist until a second motion was made.
Before Xiong Hu left, he was the last one to say, “That’s fast!” He looked with a dignified expression towards the afterimage which moved along with an arrow that shot out. “Duan Ling Tian’s speed is faster than mine.”
The afterimage which moved along with the arrow was Duan Ling Tian.
Guo Li and Zhu Lang had left; none of them were worried about Duan Ling Tian’s safety with the 36 Guardians there.
Naturally, they did not think that Duan Ling Tian would be able to defeat the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage bandit.
“It seems that no one will be able to earn these 20 points.” On a big tree beside them, a middle-aged man in silver stood and was shaking his head gently.
20 points were what one would obtain by killing a Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage bandit.
Currently, Duan Ling Tian was the only one left among the Latent Dragon Camp’s Thirteen Gangsters. Even though he was quite strong and managed to defeat ordinary Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage martial cultivators, that did not mean that he could compete with a Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage martial cultivator.
“His speed is even faster than Xiong Hu who ranks No. 2 among the Thirteen Gangsters. It’s no wonder that Duan Ling Tian could last till now. However, his speed is nothing special before this Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage bandit.” The silver-clad man who was one of the 36 Guardians continued shaking his head.
He was on guard, ready to save Duan Ling Tian at any time.
From Duan Ling Tian’s current speed, he could see that Duan Ling Tian’s strength was, at most, on the Peak Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage which was far from comparable to a Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage.
“Purple boy, you’re the only one left… I’ll regain my freedom as long as you’re eliminated.” The Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage bandit in gray looked towards Duan Ling Tian who was moving along with the arrow. His eyes were gleaming while his face was moody but laced with a tinge of excitement.
“Are you confident that you’ll be able to regain your freedom?” Finally, Duan Ling Tian stopped his body and stood a distance away from the gray-clad man and confronted him from afar.
“I’ll admit that you’re faster than that built boy… However, your strength would, at most, be at the Peak Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage while I’m already almost at the Peak Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage. You’re like an ant in front of me. I can do whatever I want with you,” drawled the gray-clad man as he sized Duan Ling Tian up.
“Then, go ahead and try,” Duan Ling Tian squinted and challenged faintly.
Now, he did not plan to continue exerting his movement technique because he knew that he still would not be able to catch up with the speed of the gray-clad man even after exerting it.
After all, his opponent was a Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage being.
He had exerted the movement technique earlier because he did not want the man to aim for him too soon.
He was dragging time and let the man eliminate the others first.
Now that the others were eliminated, there was no need for him to continue exerting his movement technique.
‘Where did Duan Ling Tian get such self-confidence?’ The middle-aged man in silver who hid in the dark could not help but frown when he saw the sass in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
“No matter what happens later, please don’t intervene.” At that time, a voice commanded in his ears.
He could hear that it was Duan Ling Tian communicating to him through True Energy Voice Transmission.
Duan Ling Tian asked him not to intervene?
“Aren’t you afraid of dying?” The silver-clad middle-aged man frowned and asked through True Energy Voice Transmission.
“I won’t.” Duan Ling Tian sent a reply through True Energy Voice Transmission again, his tone filled with confidence — powerful self-confidence.
“Hmph!” At the same time, the gray-clad man, who was angered by Duan Ling Tian’s provocation, finally could not suppress it anymore and shot out like a bolt of lightning after a snort.
He was so fast that there was a short-lived sharp whistle in the air.
He headed straight for Duan Ling Tian.
Faced with the gray-clad man who was charging towards him at great momentum, Duan Ling Tian’s right eye could not capture the slightest twitch, but his opponent’s figure appeared clearly in his left eye.
In the blink of an eye, his left eye saw the man arrive in front of him.
In that instance when the man arrived in front of him, the True Energy raging around the palm that he had long prepared suddenly pressed against Duan Ling Tian like the Five Fingers Mountain.
Seeing the gray-clad middle-aged man’s palm was only millimeters away from Duan Ling Tian, the face of the man in silver who was hiding in the dark sank. He had already missed the best opportunity to intervene.
‘Duan Ling Tian, you only have yourself to blame if you’re killed,’ he secretly thought.
