Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
‘Thousand Mass Saint Inscription, Destruction Saint Inscription, and there’s also an Overlapping Saint Inscription!’ Duan Ling Tian saw the Saint Inscriptions inscribed on the staff in Zhao Feng’s hand when it crushed his Gigantic Sword Phenomenon.
The strength came from the two Two Star Saint Inscriptions and a Three Star Saint Inscription.
The Thousand Mass Saint Inscription and Destruction Saint Inscription were Two Star Saint Inscriptions while the Overlapping Saint Inscription was a Three Star Saint Inscription.
The Thousand Mass Saint Inscription was the same Saint Inscription on the broadsword Feng Fan had used back then. The broadsword came into Duan Ling Tian’s possession after Feng Fan died.
Meanwhile, the Two Star Saint Inscription, the Destruction Saint Inscription, could break air resistance to a certain level.
Lastly, the Overlapping Saint Inscription, a Three Star Saint Inscription, could overcome strength to a certain level, granting one more strength. Although the strength granted was not much, it was still a significant boost.
Duan Ling Tian learned about these two Saint Inscriptions from his senior brother, Bai Li Hong.
The Saint Inscriptions on the Saint Weapon in Zhao Feng’s hand were inscribed by Bai Li Hong himself. If Bai Li Hong discovered that Zhao Feng had used the Saint Inscriptions he had inscribed to fight his junior brother, he would be enraged to the point of no return.
Colossal Arrow Bell!
Faced with Zhao Feng’s staff that was coming at him ferociously, Duan Ling Tian did not dodge since he knew it would be futile. He quickly cast the only defensive technique in the Colossal Aerolite Arrow that he had successfully cultivated.
At this moment, the Aerolite Shower turned into tens of thousands of arrow rays as though they were alive. They were rotating around Duan Ling Tian’s body, forming a layer of defense like an eggshell.
The eggshell had the shape of a giant bell. Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian was in within the giant bell.
“You think you can defend against the full force of my attack? You must be dreaming!” Zhao Feng’s face was filled with mockery when he saw Duan Ling Tian choose to defend against his attack.
At this moment, he was almost certain Duan Ling Tian was just a Perfection Saint Rudiment Martial Cultivator.
If Duan Ling Tian was a Martial Cultivator above the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage, it was impossible he would not cast the True Energy Consolidated Territory under such circumstances.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
The staff in Zhao Feng’s hand produced thunderous explosions in its wake.
It arrived close to the giant bell Duan Ling Tian was in very quickly.
A loud explosion reverberated in the air as the staff landed on the giant bell. It began to shake as though it might collapse anytime.
Meanwhile, the air around the staff was turbulent. Rumbling airwaves swept out rampantly with the staff at the center.
At this moment, even the ocean in the distance was affected. It caused the waves to undulate for a long time.
“Such a powerful defensive technique!” The purple bird high in the sky exclaimed softly, “This defensive technique has surpassed the Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic… It seems like the Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic he’s cultivating isn’t simple.”
“It’s the top Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic,” Chi Mei, the black-clad lady who was a Black Market’s assassin, mumbled, “Who is he? Let alone a seventh-rate sect like the Moon Illumination Sect, even a sixth-rate force might not be able to obtain such a Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic.”
“Even a fifth-rate force doesn’t have many Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactics like this,” the purple bird said.
“That’s impossible!” Zhao Feng who was initially filled with confidence had disbelief written all over his face when he realized he had exhausted 80% to 90% of his strength just to break Duan Ling Tian’s defense.
He could not figure out how a Perfection Saint Rudiment Martial Cultivator had such a powerful defense!
Unfortunately, it was destined that he would never figure it out.
As Zhao Feng crushed the bell formed by Duan Ling Tian’s Colossal Arrow Bell, Duan Ling Tian charged out from the arrow bell before it collapsed and shot a powerful arrow out.
His True Energy surged out of his Qi Sea and gathered in both his hands through the 99 Saint Veins in his body.
The world turned still when the arrow shot out as though it was the only thing left in the world.
Meanwhile, the arrow landed between Zhao Feng’s eyebrows, and he died just as he regained his senses.
At the moment of death, Zhao Feng still could not figure out how Duan Ling Tian had such a powerful defense.
He did not think it would be difficult to break Duan Ling Tian’s defense so he did not hold back. He was killed by Duan Ling Tian’s arrow because he was caught off guard.
As a Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage, he died with a lot of grievances.
However, there was no sympathy in a world where the strong ruled. A dead person was just a pile of bones while the winner would be crowned.
“Nothing’s impossible,” Duan Ling Tian said calmly in response to Zhao Feng’s words before he died. He calmly took away his Spatial Ring and destroyed his body.
Naturally, there was no way Zhao Feng could have heard his response.
‘Colossal Arrow Bell is worthy of being called the defensive technique that’s on par with an Earth Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic… The True Energy transferred through my 99 Saint Veins provided an endless stream for the arrow bell to nullify more than 80% of Zhao Feng’s force!’ Although he knew the Colossal Arrow Bell’s defense was powerful, it was Duan Ling Tian’s first time using it in a fight. It was his first time witnessing how terrifying it was.
Who was Zhao Feng?
He was a Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage Martial Cultivator. If he unleashed his full strength with his Saint Weapon that was inscribed with two Two Star Saint Inscriptions and a Three Star Saint Inscription, even an Imminent Saint Stage Martial Cultivator might not dare to fight with him with just a defensive technique.
However, Duan Ling Tian did just that.
Although it did not manage to completely endure the hit, it nullified most of it, causing Zhao Feng to lose the ability to avoid his arrow.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian knew very well the reason he managed to successfully kill Zhao Feng was because Zhao Feng had underestimated him from the very beginning. To be more precise, he had underestimated the Colossal Arrow Bell.
Otherwise, it was impossible for him to kill Zhao Feng so easily although he would still be able to kill him eventually.
‘Unfortunately, Liu Huan didn’t come along… Seems like I can only kill that Liu Huan when I return,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
He thought it was unfortunate. However, he let the thought go in the end.
With his current ability, it was not difficult for him to kill Liu Huan as long as he had the chance.
Duan Ling Tian continued on his journey to Half Moon Island after killing Zhao Feng. It did not take him long to arrive at Half Moon Island with his current ability.
Previously, it had taken him a long time to get to the Dao Martial Saint Land from Half Moon Island because he was not familiar with the way. He had gotten lost and spent a long time taking the wrong path. However, he was certain of the direction this time.
What Duan Ling Tian did not notice was a person and a bird following him closely.
“A person with a Perfection Saint Rudiment Stage cultivation base killed a Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage Martial Cultivator… I didn’t expect him to be so capable,” the purple bird exclaimed. One could tell it was a little upset from its tone.
Naturally, it was upset because Duan Ling Tian had unintentionally denied him a chance to fight.
Although Chi Mei was quiet, the way she looked at Duan Ling Tian now was different.
She muttered, “I hope you and her don’t have a close relationship… Otherwise, I’ll have to kill you even if I’m unwilling.”
While Duan Ling Tian went on his way after killing Zhao Feng, chaos had descended in the Moon Illumination Sect.
There was a forbidden area in the Moon Illumination Sect’s inner court.
Apart from people with a higher status than an inner court elder, the others were forbidden to even step a foot inside. Those who violated the rule would be expelled from the sect, and that was the lightest sentence. It was punishable by death.
The Moon Illumination Sect’s forbidden area was the cultivation place for the few Saint Stage powerhouses including the Sect Leader.
At this moment, a sudden wail resounded from one of the Saint Stage powerhouses’ mansion in the cultivation place. The wail was filled with rage.
In the mansion, a short old man’s eyes turned red as he looked at the crushed Soul Pearl on the table before him.
“Zhao Feng’s dead? Who… Who did it?!” The old man’s voice was deep, and it was filled with fury.
“Junior Uncle Qian.” At this moment, an exuberant voice came from outside.
“Sect Leader.” The old man left his mansion in just a blink of an eye. He arrived outside of the mansion when he finally reappeared. He greeted a tall middle-aged man with a face as clear as jade.
Although the tall middle-aged man was just standing there, each of his movement was majestic. It was obvious he held a high position in the sect.
Based on the way the old man addressed him, it was obvious he was the Sect Leader of Moon Illumination Sect, Jiang Wei.
“Junior Uncle Qian, what happened?” Jiang Wei asked. His mansion was situated close to the old man’s mansion so he had heard the commotion earlier.
“Sect Leader, Zhao Feng’s dead,” the old man said in his deep voice.
“Zhao Feng’s dead?!” Jiang Wei was shocked when he heard the old man’s words.
Although Zhao Feng was just an inner court elder, Jiang Wei knew very well of the relationship between Zhao Feng and the old man.
The old man had secretly taken Zhao Feng as his direct disciple.
Nobody knew why the old man did not announce their relationship later nor why he did not officially make Zhao Feng his disciple. Zhao Feng was not considered a real disciple of his. Therefore, not many people in the Moon Illumination Sect knew about the relationship between Zhao Feng and the old man.
However, Jiang Wei heard about Zhao Feng and the old man from his master previously. His master was the former Sect Leader of Moon Illumination Sect. He had disclosed to Jiang Wei that Zhao Feng might be the old man’s illegitimate son. Apparently, that was the reason he did not officially take Zhao Feng in as his direct disciple.
“No matter who it was that killed Zhao Feng, I’ll find him even if I have to dig deep!” The old man said, clenching his teeth.
The old man’s face was fierce. For a moment, even Jiang Wei thought he was looking at a different person.
“Junior Uncle Qian, I’ll get someone to investigate this… Just wait for the news,” Jiang Wei said to the old man.
He did not dare to slack when the matter was related to the old man.
Not only was the old man his senior, but he was a guardian of the Moon Illumination Sect.
