Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
‘Now that I think about it, there’s only one possibility left. Ever since I obtained the Sovereign Heart Sword’s legacy, I didn’t enter the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda at all. This can’t be a coincidence.’ Duan Ling Tian felt excited the moment he thought about this.
How could he not be excited?
The Jasper Celestial Sword was the Celestial Supreme Treasure like the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda. Moreover, it was a Celestial Supreme Treasure that specialized in killing.
In his opinion, it would definitely win all the other Saint Weapons if he could use it.
Even the ten Super Saint Weapons in the Ten Great Saint Weapons Ranking were far from being comparable to a Celestial Supreme Treasure like the Jasper Celestial Sword, let alone a Saint Weapon that was inscribed with a top-rated Nine Star Saint Inscription.
‘Since it’s calling out to me, does this mean I can wield it now?’ A thought suddenly rose up in Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
He could not dismiss the thought after it had appeared in his mind.
Under Elder Huo’s shocked gaze, Duan Ling Tian reached out to touch the hilt of the Jasper Celestial Sword. It was obvious he meant to lift the sword.
However, Elder Huo did not think he would be able to pick the Jasper Celestial Sword up.
When Duan Ling Tian reached out to touch the Jasper Celestial Sword’s hilt, he found his heart had become extremely calm. Moreover, the Jasper Celestial Sword gave him an intense sense of familiarity as though there was an intimate connection between them.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian felt as though his heart had merged into one with the Jasper Celestial Sword. It felt as though he could no longer distinguish between the two.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian gripped the Jasper Celestial Sword and gently applied some force.
The force he was using now was less than one-tenth of his full strength, and yet he was able to lift the Jasper Celestial Sword.
That was right!
As Duan Ling Tian lifted his hand gently, the Jasper Celestial Sword that was originally as heavy as a thousand ton had also been easily lifted by him.
The moment the Jasper Celestial Sword was in Duan Ling Tian’s hand, he sensed a blood connection with it.
“T-This…” Upon seeing this scene, Elder Huo was astounded.
This was because, even with his current strength, although he was able to lift the Jasper Celestial Sword by force, it was almost impossible for him to wield it.
However, Duan Ling Tian was brandishing the sword skillfully at this moment as though it weighed nothing.
Elder Huo could not help but cast the Spiritual Secret Tactic, the Divine Eye, to check Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base… At this moment, he was eager to confirm Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base again. Although he knew the answer in his heart, Duan Ling Tian’s feat still shocked him.
He had actually lifted the Jasper Celestial Sword.
Now that he had the Jasper Celestial Sword in his hand, Duan Ling Tian felt faintly majestic and the soaring determination of having the entire world under his feet.
At the moment when Duan Ling Tian tried to merge his True Energy with the Jasper Celestial Sword, his expression changed immediately.
This was because as his True Energy entered the Jasper Celestial Sword, the sword seemed to have transformed into an endless abyss. It was greedily devouring all of the True Energy in his body. Even the True Energy in his Qi Sea had also been devoured by the Jasper Celestial Sword through his 99 Saint Veins.
At this instant, Duan Ling Tian discovered that having too many Saint Veins might not necessarily be a good thing.
Through the 99 Saint Veins, Duan Ling Tian’s True Energy had almost been fully devoured in less than 20 breaths. He panicked and immediately put down the Jasper Celestial Sword.
After the Jasper Celestial Sword left his hand, it stopped devouring the last bit of True Energy in his Qi Sea.
When he looked at the Jasper Celestial Sword again, the originally simple and unadorned sword currently had faint green energy on it… However, this green energy did not stay too long before it finally disappeared.
“It has absorbed all my True Energy and now it has dissipated again after just a short while?” When Duan Ling Tian saw this, he smiled wryly. He regretted his rash action earlier.
“Y-You can actually wield it?” As Duan Ling Tian smiled wryly to himself, Elder Huo stared at Duan Ling Tian as though he was staring at a ghost. His face was filled with disbelief. “Y-You’re only at the Perfection Saint Rudiment Stage in this planet, and you don’t even have the True Origin yet… How can you possibly lift the Jasper Celestial Sword? Moreover, you can actually wield it? What’s going on?”
When Elder Huo reached the end of his sentence, even he who had seen and been through a lot could not help but feel puzzled.
Duan Ling Tian began to recount to Elder Huo how he had obtained the Sovereign Heart Sword’s legacy that Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang left behind and how he had mastered the first stage, Heartfelt Sword. There was no reason for him to hide this from Elder Huo after all.
“I see… I can’t believe there are people who can comprehend the Sword Heart in this mundane planet. Even in the Devata Realm, Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang can also be considered as a peerless genius! After he has undergone Transcendence, just with his attainment in the Sword Dao, it wouldn’t take him long to make a name for himself in the Devata Realm!” After Elder Huo heard the story about Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang, he could not help but sigh emotionally.
Perplexed, Duan Ling Tian asked in disbelief, “It’s that ridiculous?”
Who was Elder Huo?
The only Three-legged Golden Crow in the world. When he was in his prime, he was even more powerful than a deity.
The fact that Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang was actually praised by the experienced and knowledgeable Elder Huo was very surprising.
“It’s not ridiculous,” Elder Huo shook his head before he solemnly said, “In the few Devata Realms that I know of, including the Jade Emperor Heaven, only one person is comparable to him when it comes to Sword Dao.”
Although this was Duan Ling Tian’s first time hearing Elder Huo mentioning the Devata Realm or something, he knew about the Jade Emperor Heaven.
The Jade Emperor Heaven had many names that he often heard so he remembered them. For example, the Heavenly Emperor of Jade Emperor Heaven was the Great Emperor of Jade — also known as Jade Emperor — in the ancient mythology of the Hua Nation on Earth in his past life.
The various immortals in the ancient mythology were also all present in the Jade Emperor Heaven, including Elder Huo.
Based on Elder Huo’s words, it was obvious the Jade Emperor Heaven was only one of the Devata Realms.
“That person also came from our Jade Emperor Heaven, and his name was once very well-renowned. Just like you, he was also a human from a mundane planet, the Planet Yan Huang. Although the number of Saint Veins he had opened couldn’t place him at a high level among all of those came from Planet Yan Huang, he’s still the second person who walked out of the Jade Emperor Heaven and became the Heavenly Emperor in another Devata Realm,” Elder Huo added.
“Who is he?” When Duan Ling Tian heard Elder Huo’s words, he also became curious about that person’s identity.
Not only was his attainment in the Sword Dao comparable to Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang, but he even left the Jade Emperor Heaven and became the Heavenly Emperor of another Devata Realm.
“Gongsun Xuanyuan!” Elder Huo spat out two words in response to Duan Ling Tian’s question.
“Gongsun Xuanyuan?!” The instant Duan Ling Tian heard Elder Huo’s words, he could not help but feel stunned.
As an Earthling, a citizen of the Hua Nation, how could he possibly not know this name!
Yellow Emperor, Gongsun Xuanyuan!
Yan Huang Planet, Yan Huang’s descendant. The word ‘Huang’ represented the Yellow Emperor.
The descendants of Yan Huang could be considered as the descendants of the Yellow Emperor.
The Yellow Emperor was their ancestor.
“With the Xuanyuan Sword in his hand, Gongsun Xuanyuan slaughtered his way to a Devata Realm outside of the Jade Emperor Heaven and killed the Heavenly Emperor of that Devata Realm before becoming the new Heavenly Emperor in that Devata Realm.” From the way Elder Huo spoke about the Yellow Emperor Gongsun Xuanyuan, one could tell he held him high regard.
“How powerful!” Duan Ling Tian was excited. Although he had heard of the legend of Gongsun Xuanyuan, it was mostly about the things he had gone through on Earth.
He had never heard of the things that had taken place after. It was apparent those things were not something ordinary people were privy to.
“Elder Huo, you said earlier that only the Yellow Emperor alone from the various Devata Realms that you know of is comparable to Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang?” When Duan Ling Tian recalled Elder Huo’s words, he gasped.
“Yes.” Elder Huo nodded his head solemnly. “I don’t know when the Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang existed, but even if he underwent Transcendence after Gongsun Xuanyuan, I’m certain his strength is in no way inferior to Gongsun Xuanyuan! Perhaps he has already become the Heavenly Emperor of another Devata Realm.”
This was not the first time Duan Ling Tian heard of Transcendence, but he had zero understanding of the word.
Duan Ling Tian could not help but ask, “Elder Huo, what exactly does Transcendence mean? What connection does it have with the Devata Realms?”
“Transcendence means once your strength has reached a certain level, you’ll resonate with the Devata Realm. From there, the Transcending Calamity will take place. If you manage to overcome the Transcending Calamity, you’ll able to enter the Devata Realm using the Heavenly Path the Devata Realm will specifically open up for you,” Elder Huo explained.
“In this boundless universe, there’s a total of 81 Devata Realms. The Jade Emperor Heaven that I was in previously is only one of them. If someone from Planet Yan Huang undergoes Transcendence, he would go to the Jade Emperor Heaven since it’s the closest. As for the people of this planet, I have no idea where they would go after they’ve undergone Transcendence,” Elder Huo added.
“I meant it when I told you previously that you stand a chance of returning to Planet Yan Huang… As long as you achieve Transcendence and transcend to the Devata Realm that’s closest to this planet, you’ll be able to go to the Jade Emperor Heaven through the Transporting Formation. When you arrive at the Jade Emperor Heaven, you can then find your way to Planet Yan Huang,” Elder Huo finished saying in one breath.
There was no doubt Elder Huo’s words had greatly shocked Duan Ling Tian.
There was a total of 81 Devata Realms in this boundless universe?
The Jade Emperor Heaven was only one of them?
“A person who could form the Sword Heart in the mundane planet… I’m afraid there are very few who can do this even among all of the mundane planets underneath the 81 Devata Realms. Due to this reason, you must never look down on the person who passed the Sovereign Heart Sword’s legacy to you,” Elder Huo said again.
