After they were certain that the outer court disciple just now was Duan Ling Tian, the astonishment on the group of inner court disciples’ faces increased.
“I’ve heard that Duan Ling Tian’s strong, but it has never crossed my mind that his strength is actually this ridiculous! Although it’s partly thanks to the Thousand Mass Sword that he was able to defeat Ye Nan, it still didn’t overshadow his own abilities,” many inner court disciples mused.
“His reputation is completely justified! Duan Ling Tian is even freakier than the rumors,” another inner court disciple added.
“I heard that Duan Ling Tian is still a Martial Cultivator on the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage. He’s actually this monstrous on the Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage, so I wonder how formidable would he be when he makes a breakthrough to the Paramount Mortal Shedding Stage or even to the Saint Rudiment Stage!” Somebody cried out in astonishment the moment he recalled Duan Ling Tian’s current cultivation base.
At once, the entire scene fell into a dead silence.
In the end, they had forgotten this one thing — that Duan Ling Tian was only a Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage Martial Cultivator at that moment.
“A Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage Martial Cultivator who killed Feng Fan, who was ranked 99th on the Earth Rankings, and replaced him… I think we’ve never had such a frightful person in the history of the Nine Sect Alliances who could charge in into the Earth Rankings with a cultivation base of just a Perfection Mortal Shedding Stage, have we?” One of the inner court disciples asked.
“Duan Ling Tian is destined to rewrite the history of the Nine Sect Alliances’ Earth Rankings.” Many inner court disciples were excited. “Duan Ling Tian is a disciple of our Moon Illumination Sect! This is an honor to the Moon Illumination Sect!”
“I heard that Duan Ling Tian has earned a whopping three million Merit Points from the battle with Feng Fan yesterday.”
“I also heard of that too, but it seems like he’s given half of them back to most of the people today. However, even so, I’m sure the Merit Points in his hands must be still more than 1.5 million.”
“1.5 million… What insane wealth! He can be compared to those inner court elders in our inner court already, can’t he?”
The moment Duan Ling Tian’s wealth was mentioned, many inner court disciples turned green with envy.
“He’s Duan Ling Tian? The rich guy who has at least 1.5 million Merit Points?” The moment those few inner court disciples, from whom Duan Ling Tian had bought items, recalled the scene of how he had come up with different ideas to bargain with them, they were so pissed that they wanted to throw up blood.
At the same time, sorrow could be seen in their eyes.
Come on, you’re a millionaire who has millions of Merit Points! Did you really need to haggle so much when you buy an item that’s only several thousand Merit Points? You really haggled the price from the original several thousand Merit Points all the way to just several hundred Merit Points!
Of course, Duan Ling Tian had an idea about the sorrowful complains of these inner court disciples.
After Ye Nan passed out, he returned to the outer court district and back to the stand-alone little courtyard that he stayed at.
Upon returning to his room, he immediately entered the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda. After passing the piles of materials to Elder Huo, he went to the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda and took out the jade tokens that he had bought from the fourth level of the Merit Pavilion to study the ample amount of information it contained.
There were many things that he was interested in inside the jade tokens.
While Elder Huo was repairing the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda, Duan Ling Tian’s state of mind was completely immersed into the few jade tokens, or to be more precise, the ample amount of information stored inside the tokens.
The information the jade tokens contained were all-inclusive.
There was information related to the Weapons and Medicine Refinement of the Saint Refinement Master and the Dao Talisman inscribed by Dao Talisman Master, not forgetting the Saint Inscriptions inscribed by the Saint Inscription Master too… There was also other information about other aspects that were too countless for the eye to see.
The information that Duan Ling Tian read about first was related to the Saint Inscription.
Although he had the broadsword that was inscribed with the Two-Star Saint Inscription, the Thousand Mass Saint Inscription, and he could see what exactly was the Thousand Mass Saint Inscription, he could only tell that the Saint Inscription in the Dao Martial Saint Land was different in approach but had similar effects from the Inscription in the Mortal Continent.
He was completely clueless about the other relations than they had.
From the information recorded in the jade token in his hand, Duan Ling Tian now had a deeper understanding of the Saint Inscription.
“So it turns out that there are actually so many similarities between the Saint Inscription and Inscription! As long as I could find a corresponding point, there’s actually not much difference between the Inscription and the Saint Inscription… I think it’s not impossible for me to upgrade the Inscription to the Saint Inscription. Perhaps, the other memory of the Rebirth Martial Emperor is kinda useless for me now but the memory regarding the Inscription Dao might be my tremendous wealth in the Dao Martial Saint Land! A Saint Inscription Master represents wealth after all,” After having a further understanding on the Saint Inscription, Duan Ling Tian also noticed that he might be able to find the corresponding point of the Saint Inscription and the Inscription if he personally studied the Saint Inscription by himself.
In that case, the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory regarding the inscription Dao would then be able to come in handy.
He, Duan Ling Tian, might become a Saint Inscription Master in the Dao Martial Saint Land
In the Dao Martial Saint Land, the worth of a Saint Inscription was even much higher than a Dao Talisman.
The reason this difference existed was because the Dao Talisman could usually only be used once, meaning that it would be gone once it was used once… Of course, Duan Ling Tian also learned from the information in the jade tokens that a higher grade Dao Talisman would even be able to use two to three times.
Those higher grade Dao Talismans were not something that the Moon Illumination Sect could easily reach. To the Moon Illumination Sect, they were merely a myth.
Unlike Dao Talisman, the Saint Inscription was usually inscribed on a Saint Weapon and as long as the Saint Weapon was not destroyed, the Saint Inscription could always be used.
It was for this reason that the Saint Inscription was very valuable.
Just like the Thousand Mass Sword in his hand now, even though it was only inscribed with a Two-Star Saint Inscription, it was already worth 200,000 Merit Points. A Two-Star Dao Talisman, on the other hand, was usually sold for several ten thousand Merit Points.
Of course, there were some exceptions too, just like the Two-Star offensive Dao Talisman.
Once the Two-Star offensive Dao Talisman was used, it could launch an attack on the Mastery Saint Rudiment Stage level with a powerful force.
After having a certain understanding of the Saint Inscription, Duan Ling Tian proceeded to read about the Saint Refinement Masters of both Weapon and Medicine Refinement. However, very soon, he realized that he was most likely unable to refine any weapon or pill in the future anymore.
All of this was because the Saint Inscription Masters in Dao Martial Saint Land would need to be equipped with a purely fire-attributed body.
Only then could one communicate with the flame that was needed to refine weapons and medicine.
This was completely different from the Cloud Continent.
In the Cloud Continent, as long as one’s cultivation base had reached a certain level and he possessed the innate talent of an Alchemist or Weapon Craftsman, anyone could basically solidify the Pill or Weapon Fire from Origin Energy.
“It looks like every place has its own method of doing things…” Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself.
However, he did not feel disappointed at all after learning about all this.
This was because there was no lack of Saint Inscription Masters in Dao Martial Saint Land, whether it was Weapons or Medicine Refinement.
The one lacking was the Saint Inscription Master and Dao Talisman Master.
In Dao Martial Saint Land, other than the strong ones who were revered, the Saint Inscription and Dao Talisman were revered too.
“I guess when I’m free, I’ll go ask Elder Fang Gan where I can learn the Saint Inscription. As long as I’ve mastered the root of the Saint Inscription, it’d only be a matter of time if I want to connect the Saint Inscription and Inscription together,” The moment Duan Ling Tian thought of this, he could not help but be overwhelmed with excitement.
Saint Inscription Master!
He, Duan Ling Tian, had the potential and innate talent to become a Saint Inscription Master!
Not only that, once he became a Saint Inscription Master, he would become no ordinary Saint Inscription Master.
Because of the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, he might even stand a chance to become a Saint Inscription Great Master.
Although it was only a matter of one word between the Saint Inscription Master and the Saint Inscription Great Master, the actual difference between them was huge like Heaven and Earth!
Among a thousand Saint Inscription Masters, there might not be even one Saint Inscription Great Master.
After roughly learning about the other information the few jade tokens contained, Duan Ling Tian began to focus his heart back onto cultivating. First, he wanted to transform the defensive technique Silver Shirt to the Golden Shirt.
As the upgraded version of the Silver Shirt, the cultivation of the Golden Shirt was similar to that of the Silver Shirt.
Therefore, it did not take him long to cultivate the Golden Shirt at the third stage, the Competent Stage.
Right now, by casting the Golden Shirt, Duan Ling Tian was covered with a golden sheer as though he had put on a layer of golden shirt.
After successfully cultivating the Golden Shirt, he turned his attention completely onto the Saint Grade Martial Tactic: the Golden Roc Mass Tactic and began to cultivate the offensive technique Gargantuan Taishan. This was a powerful technique that corresponded with the Thousand Mass Sword.
Today, before he had even cultivated the first stage of the Gargantuan Taishan, he managed to send Ye Nan the inner court disciple flying with a blast when he first cast the Gargantuan Taishan along with the Thousand Mass Sword.
An eye for an eye!
The feeling of having his energy and blood surged to his heart content’s made Duan Ling Tian feel extremely awesome!
Of course, while cultivating the Saint Grade Martial Tactic, Duan Ling Tian did not forget to cultivate his cultivation base too. Right now, his main target now was to bring his cultivation base up to the Paramount Mortal Shedding Stage as soon as possible!
By that time, his strength would definitely experience a spurt of progress!
His Saint Veins would be opened to their maximum limit too.
In the Azure Cloud Mansion in Dao Martial Saint Land.
A huge aerial island that was suspended in the air without any support was surrounded by clouds, appearing like a fairyland.
There was a palace of incomparable luxury on top of this island.
The palace was huge and sprawled across a large area. It was much larger than all the dynasties in the Mortal Continent.
Behind the palace was a savannah-like garden with a lot of strange, docile animals and beasts roaming free, making the entire backyard appear extremely lively and full of vitality.
There was a spacious pergola at the corner of the garden.
The pergola was also hovering in the air. Underneath it was a vast lake with a variety of fishes swimming in it.
In the pergola was a young man and woman who looked like a pair of golden boy and girl sitting opposite each other around a stone table. The stone table was full of delicious food that would whet anyone’s appetite.
However, right now, the man and the woman’s minds were not on the delicious meals.
To be more precise, the young man and the woman seemed to be lost in thought.
“Rou’er, are you thinking of Tian’er again?” The good-looking young man who looked similar to Duan Ling Tian asked in a soft voice.
“Brother Feng, why is Tian’er not yet here even though so many years have passed? Could something have happened to him?” The young woman was none other than Li Rou, Duan Ling Tian’s mother.
