Chapter 1432: Devil Dragon’s Blood Essence, Another Transformation!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Duan Ling Tian discovered that Yang He’s attitude toward him had changed completely after he had defeated Ceng Zhi. He had become more humble.
Although it was not to the point where he was groveling, he was not as casual as before.
In that regard, Duan Ling Tian merely shook his head. He was not surprised.
In the Dao Martial Saint Land, the strong ones were revered. He had shown sufficient strength to crush Ceng Zhi. It was enough to unsettle the outer court of Moon Illumination Sect and make the outer court disciples wary of him.
That was, originally, his objective.
Otherwise, he would not have risked exhausting his Spiritual Energy to activate the Strange Pupil twice.
He did that as a show of power!
Put aside the fact that he was new and looked down upon by the others, he had to do that considering the animosity between his teacher, Fang Hui the City Governor of Mound Hill City, and the inner court elder, Liu Huan.
If he did not establish his strength earlier, would there not be outer disciples who would provoke him in order to curry favor with Liu Huan?
Although this would not settle the matter completely, it was still much better than leaving it as it is. At least, there would not be more than a hundred outer court disciples who would dare to find fault with him in the outer court after today.
This was his objective after all.
“Duan… Senior Brother, I’ll take my leave first.” After sending Duan Ling Tian to the independent courtyard where Ceng Zhi used to reside, Yang He addressed Duan Ling Tian accordingly. He no longer addressed him as Junior Brother.
Although Duan Ling Tian was younger than him, people rarely judge someone based on age or experience in the Dao Martial Saint Land. People mostly judged someone based on strength… Duan Ling Tian was stronger than him. It was only natural that he addressed him as Senior Brother.
“Thanks.” After thanking him, Duan Ling Tian did not say anything else to Yang He as he turned around and walked into the independent courtyard.
He knew very well in his heart that it was no longer possible for Yang He to be as casual as he was after that battle, so he did not think it was necessary to waste any more words.
They had met by chance.
If Yang He did not alienate him because of the strength he had shown, he would not have treated Yang He condescendingly just because he was stronger.
Duan Ling Tian was not someone who would oppress others just because he was stronger than them.
If he was that kind of person, he would not have addressed Yang He as Senior Brother in the beginning since he already knew he was stronger than him. Yang He was merely an outer court disciple who had just broken through to the Paramount Mortal Shedding Stage. Even without utilizing the Strange Pupil, he was certain he could defeat Yang He.
After walking into the independent courtyard, Duan Ling Tian saw a stone table, stone chair, and an exquisite house.
He saw the simple decorations inside when he pushed the door open to enter the house. Apart from a bed, there were only a few adornments. The room seemed less monotonous because of the adornments.
After closing the door and confirming the windows were tightly shut, Duan Ling Tian retrieved the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda and turned it into a speck of dust. Soon after, Duan Ling Tian disappeared from the room with just a thought.
Naturally, he did not really disappear. He had entered the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
“Elder Huo!” The first thing Duan Ling Tian did after entering the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda was not to cultivate on the second level but to find Elder Huo.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes were filled with excitement as he gazed at Elder Huo.
“I’ve refined the little Devil Dragon’s blood and produced five drops of blood essence… The drops of blood essence are in here,” Elder Huo said as he threw a small bottle over to him as though he was disposing trash.
Duan Ling Tian was afraid the small bottle might fall and break as he watched it fly toward him, and he hurriedly caught it.
“You’ll only need one drop. You can give the other four drops to others,” Elder Huo said.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and nodded slowly.
He would use one drop. Two of the four remaining drops would be given to his two fiancées… The last two drops would be given to either Little Black, Little White or Little Gold.
He did not count his two unborn children. It was not that he had forgotten about them, but he felt it would be better if the Five-clawed Devil Dragon’s blood essence was used on the saber’s blade.
Whether it was his two fiancées or the three little fellows, they were close to entering the Saint Rudiment Stage… Moreover, the Five-clawed Devil Dragon’s blood essence was only beneficial for condensing the Variant Beast Phenomenon.
Only God knew when his two unborn children would break through to the Saint Rudiment Stage.
Moreover, he believed that by the time his children broke through to the Saint Rudiment Stage, he would certainly be capable of acquiring blood essence from the other Five-clawed Divine Dragons.
“I suggest you give the two drops of the little Devil Dragon’s blood essence to the white-clad little girl and the black-clad little boy,” Elder Huo said.
“Little White? Little Black?” Duan Ling Tian naturally knew who the white-clad little girl and the black-clad little boy Elder Huo had mentioned.
“They were originally Wyrm Python… If they use the little Devil Dragon’s blood essence, it’ll transform their bloodline,” Elder Huo added.
Duan Ling Tian was naturally convinced by Elder Huo’s words. “It seems like Little Gold has no fate with this Five-clawed Devil Dragon’s blood essence.”
Duan Ling Tian even wondered if he should avoid Little Gold when he gives the Five-clawed Devil Dragon’s blood essence to Little White and Little Black?
After informing Elder Huo, Duan Ling Tian went up to the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
He retrieved one drop of the Five-clawed Devil Dragon’s blood essence from the small bottle after he sat down cross-legged.
“No wonder it’s the Five-clawed Devil Dragon’s blood essence. The aura is so dense.” Duan Ling Tian was shocked when he looked at the Five-clawed Devil Dragon’s blood essence in his hands.
After it had left the bottle, he could clearly feel the one drop of Five-clawed Devil Dragon’s blood essence emitting a majestic Blood Qi.
‘If I’m an ordinary person, this Blood Qi would have killed me!’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
As for the method to fuse the Five-clawed Devil Dragon’s blood essence, it was not too difficult. He would separate it with his True Energy and lead it around his body and circulate it along his Saint Veins.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Nine Dragons Form!
In Duan Ling Tian’s body, the nine dragons were transporting the True Energy and Devil Dragon’s blood essence and circulating one great Qi circulatory cycle after another. It was not very different from his usual cultivation.
After circulating about thirty great Qi cycle, Duan Ling Tian could feel the blood essence had already passed through all 52 Saint Veins in his body and fused with his body.
He clearly felt that his entire body had undergone changes due to the fused blood essence.
Whether it was his flesh, blood, bones, veins or skin, they seemed to have undergone a tremendous change and become more powerful than before.
“Is… Is this an illusion?” Duan Ling Tian gasped inwardly.
As far as he knew, when ordinary Martial or Dao Cultivators at the Perfection Saint Rudiment Stage fused with a Saint Beast’s blood essence, their body would not change.
They could only form a corresponding Variant Beast Phenomenon once they reached the Perfection Saint Rudiment Stage. Other than that, there were no other uses for a Saint Beast’s blood essence.
However, when he fused with the blood essence of the Five-clawed Devil Dragon, he discovered that his body seemed to have undergone an earth-shattering change again.
He had a similar experience once when the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda used its remaining power to transform his body previously.
Naturally, the changes this time were not as dramatic as the previous time.
“I really don’t know if it’s just my imagination or did my body really get stronger?” After taking a deep breath, Duan Ling Tian began to experiment.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Duan Ling Tian did not utilize any True Energy as he began to punch, kick, and rapidly move in the air with just his brute strength.
The sound of air explosion sounded in the wake of his punches and kicks.
“This… I really became stronger!” After experimenting for a while, Duan Ling Tian stopped and looked down at his opened hands. His expression was a mixture of excitement and disbelief.
Duan Ling Tian could clearly feel the changes in his body after his experiment.
Although the transformation this time was not as drastic as the previous time, the improvement was still quite extreme.
“With my transformed body, I’m confident I can defeat Zeng Zhi without utilizing the Strange Pupil if I meet him again!” Duan Ling Tian was filled with confidence.
Previously, if he did not utilize the unpredictable ability of the Strange Pupil, he would be evenly matched with Ceng Zhi at the most.
He knew his ability very well.
“Now, even without the unpredictable abilities of the Strange Pupil, I can fight with a Martial or Dao Cultivator at the peak of the Paramount Mortal Shedding Stage. In fact, ordinary Martial or Dao Cultivators at the peak of the Paramount Mortal Shedding Stage might not even be a match for me.” After his body had fused with the Five-clawed Devil Dragon’s blood essence and undergone another transformation, Duan Ling Tian was filled with confidence. He felt indomitable and invincible.
‘There are more benefits from the Five-clawed Devil Dragon’s blood essence… Wait until I break through to the Perfection Saint Rudiment Stage, I’ll be able to condense the Divine Dragon Phenomenon with this drop of Five-clawed Devil Dragon’s blood essence that I’ve fused into my body today! Moreover, it is a Five-clawed Divine Dragon Phenomenon!’ Duan Ling Tian became even more excited when he thought about this.
At this moment, it was as though he could already see himself fighting alongside a Five-clawed Divine Dragon Phenomenon after he had broken through to the Saint Rudiment Stage.
His strength was already invincible among those with the same cultivation base. In addition to the Five-clawed Divine Dragon Phenomenon, there was no doubt he was like a tiger that had been given wings. “I’m confident that the day I break through to the Perfection Saint Rudiment Stage will be the day I become invincible in regards to those below the Saint Stage!”
Duan Ling Tian finally managed to suppress the excitement in his heart after half a day.
‘It’s important that I break through to the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage as soon as I can… Once I make another breakthrough, not to mention all those below the Saint Rudiment Stage, even those at the Early Saint Rudiment Stage might not be my match.’ When he thought of that, Duan Ling Tian immediately sat down cross-legged and began to cultivate diligently with a Saint Stone in his hands.
In the Early and Intermediate Saint Rudiment Stage, there were no special moves apart from the transformation in the Qi Sea and changes in one’s True Energy.
The special moves could only be mastered and used once one had broken through to the Mastery Saint Rudiment Stage. One would be able to use the True Energy Consolidated Weapon at the Mastery Saint Rudiment Stage.
