“Elder Huo, you keep mentioning Sword Heart, but I wonder what is it?” Duan Ling Tian asked, perplexed.
“It’s difficult for me to explain Sword Heart in detail. You only need to know it’s the summit of Sword Dao in the mundane planets… There are many people who could form the Sword Heart in the Devata Realms, but almost all of them achieved their Sword Heart in the Devata Realm. That’s nothing at all. After all, the cultivation environment and resources in the Devata Realms are just too good. Basically everyone, apart from those Sword Cultivators who are naturally inept, can form the Sword Heart. The Sword Heart comprehended in the mundane planets, on the other hand, is a different thing. Those who have comprehended Sword Heart in the mundane planet will undergo divine baptism from the Devata deities when transcending to the Devata Realm. Their Sword Heart will then transform into the Divine Sword Heart. In the Devata Realms, those who possess the Divine Sword Heart are all people who have obtained the Sword Heart in the mundane planet… Like I said earlier, such an existence is very rare in all 81 Devata Realms. Gongsun Xuanyuan who’s originally from the mundane planet, Yan Huang Planet, is one of them. The Feng Qing Yang you mentioned is also one of them,” Elder Huo slowly explained.
When he reached the end of his sentence, he paused for a moment so Duan Ling Tian would have time to process the information.
Duan Ling Tian, on the other hand, was in a daze.
At this moment, he finally realized just how remarkable Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang was. He was actually a first-rate peerless Sword Dao genius even in the Devata Realm.
Moreover, the era Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang belonged to was a long, long time ago.
According to Elder Huo, Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang could possibly be a Heavenly Emperor in one of the Devata Realms now. He was someone comparable to the Yellow Emperor Gongsun Xuanyuan.
Duan Ling Tian’s heartbeat quickened. He could not calm his chaotic emotions for a long time after that.
The Sovereign Heart Sword he obtained was actually left behind by such an amazing person.
“According to your words, the highest stage, HeartSword Amalgamation, of the Sovereign Heart Sword legacy you’ve obtained must be the stage that leads to Sword Heart… If you manage to forge the Sword Heart before you undergo Transcendence, your achievement in the future won’t be inferior that Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang and Yellow Emperor Gongsun Xuanyuan,” Elder Huo added.
His words sent another wave of excitement to Duan Ling Tian.
He could still remain calm about Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang since he did not know much about him. However, the Yellow Emperor Gongsun Xuanyuan was someone he often heard about and remembered. He could even be considered as his ancestor.
After all, his soul originated from the Hua Nation on Earth. He was the descendant of Hua Nation, the descendant of Yan Huang!
The moment he thought about how he could have the same achievement as the ancestor of Hua Nation, Gongsun Xuanyuan, it became impossible for him to calm chaotic emotions.
“Even I am envious of your blessed life… Not only did you obtain the recognition of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda, but you even obtained the Sovereign Heart Sword that Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang left behind! That’s the supreme Sword Dao mental cultivation technique that could forge the Sword Heart in the mundane planets! Sometimes, I even suspect you’re the reincarnation of a Devata deity. Otherwise, how can you be so blessed?” Elder Huo sighed as he looked at Duan Ling Tian with a complicated gaze.
When Duan Ling Tian heard this, he smiled awkwardly. He did not know what to say at this moment.
Even since his soul had crossed over to this world from the Earth, everything felt like a dream to him. However, he also knew that everything was real.
When he recalled the fortuitous meetings he had encountered on his journey, he could not help but sigh emotionally in his heart. His blessing was indeed different compared to ordinary people.
Somehow, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes had been opened a lot after listening to Elder Huo’s words.
He now knew about the Devata Realms and also the worth of the Sovereign Heart Sword’s legacy that Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang left behind.
“Moreover, according to Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang’s message in the Sovereign Heart Sword, he seems to be someone from Fog Rain Progeny or something. Apparently, I’m also the only successor of the Fog Rain Progeny.” Duan Ling Tian was confused about the Fog Rain Progeny since Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang did not give him a detailed explanation on this.
“If it’s possible, make sure you put in more effort in the Sovereign Heart Sword. Only then you’ll able to forge the Sword Heart… Naturally, such a supreme sword Dao mental cultivation technique like the Sovereign Heart Sword will also be a great help to the other martial tactics that you cultivate. You don’t have to worry about it negatively affecting your other martial tactics,” Elder Huo told Duan Ling Tian.
Initially, Duan Ling Tian did not know what he meant.
However, when he tried to cast the various Saint Grade Martial Tactics, apart from being more skilled, there was a hint of sword intent from the Sovereign Heart Sword as well.
The Sovereign Heart Sword was almost similar to a martial tactic, but at the same time, it was different. It was superior to martial tactics.
The Sovereign Heart Sword was a tactic that worked on all other tactics, it was a law that all tactics abided to.
Besides, Duan Ling Tian did not forget about the research he made on the Jasper Celestial Sword previously. Now that he could lift it and was skilled in it, he must be able to wield it.
However, before trying the Jasper Celestial Sword again, he spent some time increasing the True Energy that had been depleted from his Qi Sea.
After recovering his True Energy, he once again merged his True Energy with the Jasper Celestial Sword. He was also cautious this time around since he was afraid of being almost sucked dry by the Jasper Celestial Sword like the previous time.
After trying a few times, Duan Ling Tian discovered he could indeed wield the Jasper Celestial Sword now.
Naturally, with his current strength, he would not be able to unleash the Jasper Celestial Sword’s full potential… Even so, the strength he was granted just by merging his True Energy with the Jasper Celestial Sword was ridiculously powerful.
Duan Ling Tian had already made an estimation.
When he infused 30% of the True Energy in his Qi Sea into the Jasper Celestial Sword and casually waved the sword around, his strength was in no way inferior to his offensive attack unleashed at full strength.
“If I infuse 50% of the True Energy in my Qi Sea into the Jasper Celestial Sword, I’m 90% confident I can kill someone at the Imminent Saint Stage!” After experimenting with merging 30% and 50% of his True Energy in his Qi Sea into the Jasper Celestial Sword and brandishing his sword twice, Duan Ling Tian already had an answer in his heart.
“However, even if I infuse all the True Energy in my Qi Sea into the Jasper Celestial Sword with my current cultivation base, I still won’t be able to kill the weakest Saint Stage powerhouse… The gap between Saint Stage and non-Saint Stage is just too wide. It’s more than twice as powerful!” Duan Ling Tian knew this very well.
With his current cultivation base, even if he used his full strength to control the Jasper Celestial Sword, he could only kill an Imminent Saint Stage powerhouse.
Although his sword might be a threat to a Saint Stage powerhouse, he was still unable to kill him.
‘However, if my cultivation base breaks through to the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage, my Qi Sea will expand once again and the True Energy will increase… At that time, if I infuse all my True Energy into the Jasper Celestial Sword, I don’t think an ordinary Saint Stage powerhouse would be able to take down my sword!’ The moment Duan Ling Tian thought of this, his heart was overwhelmed with excitement.
Although he could already defeat an enemy of a higher level with his current strength, he could only defeat an Imminent Saint Stage powerhouse at most even if he used the Jasper Celestial Sword and all of his techniques.
The difference between the Saint Stage and the non-Saint Stage was just too wide. With his ability that far surpassed other people who were at the same level as him and his horrifying brute strength, it would still be difficult for him to defeat a Saint Stage powerhouse when he had not broken through to the Saint Stage yet.
However, everything was different now that he had the Jasper Celestial Sword.
By the time he made a breakthrough to the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage, those at the bottom of the Saint Stage definitely would not be able to withstand the sword if he wielded it with his full strength.
“However, I mustn’t do that unless it’s necessary… After all, if I deplete all my True Energy, I’ll be like a spent arrow. If someone seizes the chance to attack me, it’ll be difficult for me to escape.” Duan Ling Tian knew this very well.
After a series of experiment, the True Energy in Duan Ling Tian’s Qi Sea had been depleted by 80% so he began to recover them again.
After spending some time recovering his True Energy, Duan Ling Tian was not in a rush to leave the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda. Instead, he continued to stay in the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda to cultivate diligently so that he could progress and break through to the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage.
Once he had broken through to the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage, with the help of the Jasper Celestial Sword, he would not need to worry about ordinary Saint Stage powerhouses.
Due to this reason, Duan Ling Tian cultivated even more diligently.
While Duan Ling Tian was cultivating diligently, somebody else in the Moon Illumination Sect’s inner court was in a bad mood.
“That Duan Ling Tian really refuses to come out?” Liu Huan’s expression was grave. He did not expect Duan Ling Tian would not leave Bai Li Hong’s residence at all since his return. It left him with no chance to make a move at all.
“Don’t tell me I have to let him go?” Liu Huan’s eyebrows were furrowed as he walked back and forth. His face was so dark as though ink would drip out from it. “If he stays in Bai Li Hong’s residence and doesn’t come out for several years, don’t tell me I’ll have to watch as he grows stronger? No! This can’t continue on like this!”
Liu Huan kept shaking his head as he took a deep breath. He looked as though he had gone insane. “With Duan Ling Tian’s innate talent, his strength will most likely surpass mine in a few years… Currently, I can still defeat him. It’ll be impossible in a few years time.”
Although Liu Huan was unwilling, he had to admit this.
Duan Ling Tian’s innate talent in Martial Dao was indeed shockingly remarkable.
“I can’t let him continue to grow.” A dangerous idea quickly popped up in Liu Huan’s mind. He could hardly compose himself. “Although this might not impact him much, it’ll at least ensure that he won’t be able to cultivate in peace. As long as he leaves Bai Li Hong’s residence and the sect, I’ll have a chance to make my move!”
