Chapter 1452: Two-Star Saint Inscription
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Saint Inscription?” When Duan Ling Tian, who discovered that the aura of the giant sword in Feng Fan’s hand had changed, heard the noise made by the onlookers, he could not help but feel shocked.
After being in Dao Martial Saint Land for more than a year, he had only seen a Saint Weapon inscribed with Saint Inscription once at the auction held in the Rare Treasure Pavilion of Mound Hill City. However, that Saint Inscription was merely an ordinary Sun Saint Inscription.
That Saint Inscription could only provide superficial assistive support and did not have much impact on the Saint Weapon itself.
However, the Saint Inscription on the giant sword in Feng Fan’s hand was apparently different. It completely changed the aura of the giant sword in an instant.
Without any hesitation, Duan Ling Tian grabbed the Sun Shooting Bow which was shining with a silver luster in his left hand as an arrow was condensed in his right and then he nocked it onto the bowstring.
Unlike the reservations he had the last time he exerted the Aerolite Strike, this time he had fully unleashed it!
An arrow flew out as if it was a short-lived meteor in the night sky. It seemed to eclipse its surroundings wherever it passed.
At that moment, the whole world seemed to only watch that strike.
“Mount Tai Suppression!” Feng Fan cried out in a timely manner. The broadsword in his hands seemed to instantly transform into a towering mountain to meet that arrow which seemed to eclipse everything else.
The sounds of wind and thunder when the broadsword slashed across the sky was even more terrifying than his previous strike.
Naturally, the previous strike was the first attack he made and not the attack he continued to exert after most of his energy was depleted by Duan Ling Tian’s arrow.
The broadsword crashed down as if it was a Mount Tai Suppression! The void stirred wherever it passed. It was as if the sky was covered, leaving the world without glory.
Duan Ling Tian’s arrow that flew out with his full force was thoroughly crushed!
Despite being so mighty, the arrow merely slowed the momentum of the broadsword slightly. It was so little that it was negligible.
Following that, the broadsword continued on its path.
“How’s that possible!?” Duan Ling Tian’s face changed dramatically.
The strength of Feng Fan’s strike was completely beyond his expectations.
In his opinion, the strength of this strike was even stronger than the attack exerted by an ordinary Early Saint Rudiment Stage Martial Cultivator.
“What inscription was that? How could it have given the broadsword such powerful force?” Duan Ling Tian was befuddled as he realized that despite all his plans, he never accounted for the Saint Inscription on Feng Fan’s broadsword. He never imagined that Feng Fan’s Saint Weapon would have a Saint Inscription.
When Feng Fan retrieved his broadsword, he could see that it was an Earth Rank Saint Weapon which was completely different from a Human Rank Saint Weapon.
At that time, he guessed that it might be inscribed with a Saint Inscription.
Although he had thought of that, he never expected that the Saint Inscription on Feng Fan’s broadsword would be so terrifying that it could provide him with such powerful strength.
“Die!” Feng Fan shouted while the broadsword in his hands which was falling like a towering mountain came near Duan Ling Tian. It was so close to destroying him.
Sound of Death!
At that crucial moment, Duan Ling Tian’s hands kept moving and moving as he plucked the bowstring, again and again, to exert the only close combat offensive move in the Colossal Aerolite Arrow in a timely manner.
An awful sound rang one after another as True Energy Light Blades kept sweeping out to face the broadsword in Feng Fan’s hand like a storm.
Nevertheless, the broadsword braced the storm and landed on Duan Ling Tian after all.
A loud detonation sounded and Duan Ling Tian was swept off his feet by the broadsword. He shot more than ten meters away like an arrow before he staggered and caught himself.
After he continuously spat out several mouthfuls of blood, his face became extremely pale.
‘Fortunately, I manage to exert the Sound of Death in time to block the energy in his strike. Otherwise, it would have killed me!’ While Duan Ling Tian felt the lingering fear in his heart, he knew he was fortunate as well.
“It’s a Thousand Mass Saint Inscription!” At that time, Duan Ling Tian heard a sparse exclamation.
“Thousand Mass Saint Inscription?”
At once, Duan Ling Tian figured out that they were talking about the Saint Inscription on Feng Fan’s sword, that Saint Inscription which gave him unparalleled power.
“Once the Thousand Mass Saint Inscription is activated, it can make the Saint Weapon as heavy as a thousand masses! However, there won’t be any burden on the Saint Weapon’s master… Senior Brother Feng Fan even has a Thousand Mass Saint Inscription on his Saint Weapon! Unbelievable!”
“The Thousand Mass Saint Inscription is a Two-Star Saint Inscription. In the sect, you’d need at least 200,000 Merit Points to exchange for an Earth Rank Saint Weapon with a Two-Star Saint Inscription! How did Senior Brother Feng Fan get so many Merit Points?”
“First, it was Human Rank Primitive Saint Grade Martial Tactic, then it was an Earth Rank Saint Weapon with a Two-Star Saint Inscription… Could Senior Brother Feng Fan be the illegitimate child of an inner court elder?”
There was an uproar amongst the onlooking outer court disciples. All of them were stunned by Feng Fan’s winning card.
“Two-Star Saint Inscription? I see…”
Duan Ling Tian gasped secretly. ‘That’s why he’s so strong! It turns out to be a Two-Star Saint Inscription… However, how did an outer court disciple like Feng Fan obtain an Earth Rank Saint Weapon with a Two-Star Saint Inscription?
‘Perhaps, it might be a weapon lent to him by one of the powerhouses on Liu Huan’s side. No, that’s not it! When Feng Fan retrieved this broadsword, no one seemed curious as if the broadsword has always been his weapon.’ Duan Ling Tian could not figure it out.
Currently, even the group of outer court elders were staring at each other as they saw the shock in each other’s eyes.
They had an Earth Rank Saint Weapon with a Two-Star Saint Inscription too.
However, they were inevitably surprised when such a Saint Weapon appeared in the hands of an outer court disciple. Even if the outer court disciple was a powerhouse on the Earth Rankings, this was astonishing.
“Where did Feng Fan get his Saint Weapon?”
“In the past, he has used the same Saint Weapon in battles, but he never activated the Two-Star Saint Inscription, the Thousand Mass Saint Inscription, on it.”
“That was because his past opponent was not worthy for him to utilize this Thousand Mass Saint Inscription!”
“Once he activates the Thousand Mass Saint Inscription, Duan Ling Tian will definitely lose!”
The several outer court elders including Dong Chong sighed.
If there was no Thousand Mass Saint Inscription, Duan Ling Tian might still have a chance.
But now, Feng Fan had used the Thousand Mass Saint Inscription. In their opinion, Duan Ling Tian was as good as dead.
A bright smile appeared on Huang Cheng’s face which had been originally gloomy. “Once the Thousand Mass Saint Inscription’s out, there’s no suspense in this battle!”
There was also a group of outer court disciples who were as pleased as Huang Cheng.
They had placed a big bet on Feng Fan’s victory in Duan Ling Tian’s bet. They could only get their bet back and their winnings if Feng Fan won.
Zhou Qi grinned.
In his opinion, there would be no more suspense in this battle.
All the others had a similar idea in mind.
“I didn’t expect that Feng Fan’s Saint Weapon would have a Two-Star Saint Inscription hiding in it… Once he played this winning card, the outcome of the battle was fixed.” Many of the outer court deacons smiled. They had also placed huge bets on Feng Fan, so naturally, they hoped that he would win.
“Duan Ling Tian, you can’t escape death after all!” Deng Wei looked at Duan Ling Tian with coldness filling his eyes whilst a mocking smile hung on the corner of his mouth.
“Duan Ling Tian, no matter how you put up a last-ditch struggle, it will be useless… You’re doomed the moment you stood in front of me, Feng Fan. You must die!” After he swept Duan Ling Tian away, Feng Fan was not in a hurry to pursue him. Instead, he taunted Duan Ling Tian with his words like he was playing eagle catching chicks.
He moved after he had enough play and seemed to transform into a Roc, heading straight for Duan Ling Tian once again.
The broadsword with an activated Two-Star Saint Inscription, the Thousand Mass Saint Inscription, swept toward Duan Ling Tian in great momentum as if it would not rest until it crushed and killed Duan Ling Tian.
Body and Arrow Synchronization!
In face of Feng Fan who was coming towards him in a great momentum, Duan Ling Tian chose to avoid him since he knew that it was impossible for him to beat Feng Fan head-on even if he fully exerted himself.
For the moment, he kept dodging.
“Do you think avoiding me works?” Feng Fan sneered. While he raised his hands, he retrieved a giant hammer which was entirely blood-red in color.
The giant hammer seemed bulky but in his hands, it seemed to be as light as a feather.
“It’s the Gale Hammer!” When Feng Fan retrieved the giant hammer, the inner court disciples who came to see the action cried out.
“The Gale Hammer?” Having heard the inner court disciples’ exclamation, many of the outer court disciples were shocked. “Wasn’t the Gale Hammer the weapon of Senior Brother Zhou Qi of the inner court? And there was a Two-Star Saint Inscription on Senior Brother Zhou Qi’s Gale Hammer as well.”
“I’ve heard about that. The Two-Star Saint Inscription on Senior Brother Zhou Qi’s Gale Hammer was a Gale Saint Inscription. Once it’s activated, the Gale Hammer will be terrifyingly fast.”
“It was said that Senior Brother Zhou Qi’s speed was ranked among the top in the inner court disciples because of the Gale Saint Inscription on his Gale Hammer.”
An outer court disciple’s whispers exposed the background of the Gale Hammer.
“Zhou Qi’s weapon? And it also has a Two-Star Inscription?” Duan Ling Tian’s face sank.
If he still could not conclude that Zhou Qi had intentionally lent Feng Fan his weapon to battle him, then he would have lived two lives for naught.
Seeing Feng Fan retrieve the Gale Hammer, a bright smile manifested on Zhou Qi’s face.
He had lent his Gale Hammer to him just in case.
‘With the Gale Hammer in addition to Junior Brother Fan’s Thousand Mass Broadsword… It would take a miracle for Duan Ling Tian to stay alive.” In Zhou Qi’s opinion, it was impossible for such a miracle to happen.
“Duan Ling Tian, you can continue avoiding me. I want to see if you’re faster or if I am!” With the Gale Hammer in one hand and the Thousand Mass Broadsword in the other, Feng Fan looked at Duan Ling Tian jeeringly.
To him, Duan Ling Tian was a piece of meat on his chopping board.
As soon as he finished his sentence, Feng Fan made a move.
The True Energy on the Gale Hammer surged as he activated the Gale Saint Inscription and smashed it towards Duan Ling Tian.
It was outrageously fast as if it was an aerolite!
