Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Seventh level Origin Core Stage?” Duan Ling Tian thought inwardly and was slightly surprised.
Relying on his formidable Spiritual Force and the experience of Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian was able to discern that this He Dong was a seventh level Origin Core Stage martial artist.
The nearby He Chun noticed Duan Ling Tian’s gaze descending onto He Dong’s figure, and hurriedly said, “Duan Ling Tian, this is Senior Brother He Dong, he’s one of the seventh level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples of our Megrez Peak… Our Megrez Peak had five seventh level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples, and his strength is the strongest.”
Duan Ling Tian’s brows knit, He Dong’s strength would surely be extraordinary as he was able to stand out from amongst five seventh level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples.
“He’s inferior to Shi Hao?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
Since Shi Hao is the publically acknowledged number one in the outer court, then he presumably would surpass this He Dong.
“Senior Brother He Dong’s strength is slightly inferior to Shi Hao… But he always never admitted Shi Hao as the number one in the outer court. Supposedly, he’s participating in the outer court martial competition this time because he wants to defeat Shi Hao and seize the first place in the outer court martial competition!” He Chun slowly said.
Defeat Shi Hao and seize the first place in the outer court martial competition?
The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a trace of a faintly discernible smile…
Did this He Dong really think that amongst the Seven Star Sword Sect’s outer court disciples, he was the strongest besides Shi Hao?
In next to no time, more and more Megrez Peak disciples gather on the Megrez Platform.
Meanwhile, 10 outer court elders had arrived.
Amongst the 10 outer court elders, Duan Ling Tian only recognized two.
Lu Qiu and Zhao Lin.
Lu Qiu and Zhao Lin walked over shoulder to shoulder, so there ought to be some relationship between the two of them.
“Duan Ling Tian!” In next to no time, Lu Qiu saw Duan Ling Tian from within the crowd and a wisp of a smile appeared on his face as he walked over in large strides.
“Elder Lu Qiu.” Duan Ling Tian saw Lu Qiu being so enthusiastic and instantly lightly smiled as he greeted him in return.
“Duan Ling Tian, I really misjudged you.” Lu Qiu looked at Duan Ling Tian with an extremely complicated gaze.
That time, it was he who received and led Duan Ling Tian to Megrez Peak.
Although he felt at that time that this young man around the age of 20 was different to the other new disciples, but he never imagined that Duan Ling Tian would actually be so abnormal!
Duan Ling Tian hadn’t even arrived at Megrez Peak for a few days before he killed two fourth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples!
Two months later, he once again killed a sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple!
Spreading his name throughout the entire Seven Star Sword Sect’s outer court.
Of course, even in the inner court, there were many people who knew that a monstrous disciple, Duan Ling Tian, had appeared in the outer court.
“Work hard, get a good placing in the outer court martial competition this time.” Lu Qiu lightly smiled to Duan Ling Tian before greeting the other outer court elders.
If the rules of the outer court martial competition this time wasn’t changed, he didn’t doubt it in the slightest that Duan Ling Tian would be able to obtain the first place in the outer court martial competition!
But this time, because Duan Ling Tian showed his ability, the peak masters of the six peaks of the outer court temporarily changed the rules of the outer court martial competition and didn’t establish restrictions anymore.
After changing the rules, the seventh level Origin Core Stage disciples of the six great sword peaks in the outer court were able to participate in the outer court martial competition this time.
This also caused the competition to become even fiercer!
Even though Duan Ling Tian had once killed a sixth level Origin Core Stage disciple three months ago, but the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage and the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage was a divide, and he didn’t think that Duan Ling Tian would be able to defeat a seventh level origin Core Stage martial artist.
“Hmph!” Along with Lu Qiu walking off, Zhao Lin followed and his icy cold gaze focused onto Duan Ling Tian, as if waiting to swallow Duan Ling Tian up.
Duan Ling Tian wasn’t afraid in the slightest as he crossed gazes with Zhao Lin, and the corners of his mouth curled into a light smile, causing Zhao Lin’s expression to become even more unsightly.
“You’re Duan Ling Tian?” Suddenly, a voice sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ear, and he noticed that it was He Dong who’d originally closed his eyes to rest his mind in the distance, had actually come to his side unknowingly.
Duan Ling Tian looked at He Dong and lightly nodded.
“I heard that you killed the Phecda Peak’s sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple, Shao Ying, three months ago. Your natural talent isn’t bad.” He Dong nodded to Duan Ling Tian. His face was stiff and spoke in a reserved manner.
“Your natural talent isn’t bad either, it ought to be not long before you’re able to break through to the eighth level of the Origin Core Stage right?” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze was incomparably profound, and it descended onto He Dong, as if able to see through everything.
Relying on his sharp Spiritual Force, Duan Ling Tian could feel the slight changes on He Dong’s body…
Although He Dong’s expression didn’t change, but his pupils couldn’t help constrict as he noticed that before this outer court disciple that was a little over 20, he seemed as if he was completely without any secrets.
The gaze of this outer court disciple seemed able to see through everything.
“Looks like I’ve still looked down on you.” He Dong took a deep breath, and a wisp of a smile appeared on his stiff face, then he nodded to Duan Ling Tian. “He Dong.”
He Dong was introducing himself.
“Duan Ling Tian.” Duan Ling Tian didn’t have any bad impression towards He Dong, and now that He Dong was courteous, he naturally wouldn’t be discourteous.
“Your reputation is well deserved.” He Dong smiled to Duan Ling Tian, and at the same time that he turned to leave, he added. “Feel free to ask if you need my help on the matter with Shi Hao.”
“Thank you.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled, this He Dong was slightly interesting.
The nearby He Chun was stunned. “Duan Ling Tian, Senior Brother He Dong actually took the initiative to greet you earlier… Moreover, he even had the intention of helping you.”
Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled, even if He Dong was willing to help him, he still wouldn’t ask for it.
He would deal with his own things!
Moreover, according to He Chun, He Dong’s strength seems to be inferior to Shi Hao. If He Dong suffered any injuries because of him, then he would really owe him a huge favor.
After Lu Qiu and He Dong successively greeting Duan Ling Tian, for a time, Duan Ling Tian became the center of attention for the gazes of many.
Along with the starting of the first round of the outer court martial competition, the gazes of these people left Duan Ling Tian.
In the first round of the outer court martial competition, everyone would receive a number token, then take turns to battle.
The number token Duan Ling Tian received was number 189.
Belonging to the seventh combat ring.
A Ring Master would be born from every combat ring, a Ring Master that would advance in the end, and obtain the qualification to participate in the second round of the outer court martial competition.
It was unknown whether it was done intentionally by the group of Megrez Peak outer court elders, but all the five seventh level Origin Core Stage disciples including He Dong were respectively divided to the first combat ring until the fifth combat ring…
The outer court disciples that were allocated to these five combat rings all had faces full of bitter smiles.
After the outer court martial competition began, the five seventh level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples stood there atop the first to the fifth combat ring, like undefeatable war gods.
The outer court disciples that were allocated to these five combat rings all directly admitted defeat, as no one had the courage to ascend to the combat ring.
Because they knew that even if they ascended to the combat ring, they would just be looking for a bashing!
They could only wait for the Ring Master of the other five combat rings to be born, then carry out challenges.
Once a challenge was successful, they would be able to replace the Ring Master and become the new Ring Master!
They’d then obtain the qualification to participate in the second round of the outer court martial competition tomorrow.
So, they weren’t discouraged.
The seventh combat ring.
The combat ring Duan Ling Tian belonged to, number 181 and number 182 had ascended the combat ring and were carrying out an elimination battle.
Both of them were fifth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian noticed that practically all the outer court disciples on the first to fifth combat ring, the sixth combat ring, the eighth combat ring, the ninth combat ring, and the tenth combat ring were all fifth level Origin Core Stage disciples or sixth level Origin Core Stage disciples. He couldn’t see a single outer court disciple that was below the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage.
With a quick thought, he came to an understanding.
It was practically impossible for outer court disciples below the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage to obtain the final 10 places.
So, even though there were many outer court disciples on the Megrez Platform, most came to watch the excitement.
The outer court disciples that were truly participating in the first round of the outer court martial competition were only around 300 people.
These 300 people were all outer court disciples at the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage or above.
Duan Ling Tian gaze returned to the seventh combat ring.
Meanwhile, the results of the battle between the two fifth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples had come out, one of them relied on a grade seven spirit sword to firmly defeat the other outer court disciple that only possessed a grade eight spirit sword.
“Such a pity… His strength wasn’t inferior to his opponent, but he lost just because his spirit sword was inferior to his opponent.” He Chun sighed, and felt slight pity for the outer court disciple that lost.
Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled. “Spirit swords are a part of strength as well.
In next to no time, a few elimination battles were carried out successively on the seventh combat ring.
Ten combat rings, and there was a Megrez Peak outer court elder standing beside every single one of them. The duty of these outer court elders was to prevent outer court disciples from being killed during these elimination battles…
After all, swords and blades had no eyes!
“Number 189!” The outer court elder that stood beside the seventh combat ring abruptly spoke.
“It’s my turn.” Duan Ling Tian’s brows knit, and his figure moved to ascend the seventh combat arena.
“Duan Ling Tian!” The gaze of the outer court elder suddenly lit up when he saw Duan Ling Tian.
Presently, the outer court disciple that stood atop the seventh combat ring was a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist, and when he saw Duan Ling Tian, his originally composed expression was instantly slightly flurried.
Duan Ling Tian had once killed a sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple three months ago!
Duan Ling Tian attracted the gazes of many people as soon as he ascended the combat ring.
The outer court disciples that were originally surrounding a side of the combat arena to watch on had now flowed over towards the seventh combat ring. “It’s Duan Ling Tian! Duan Ling Tian has entered the ring.”
“Three months ago, I didn’t see with my own two eyes, the scene of Duan Ling Tian killing the sixth level Origin Core Stage disciples, Shao Ying, on the Phecda Peak’s life and death arena… Today, I can finally see his elegant demeanor!”
“Allegedly, Duan Ling Tian relied on a cultivation at the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage to kill Shao Ying three months ago. I’ve always been extremely curious about how he did it.”
“You don’t have to be curious now, as you’re about to be able to see it.”
Streams of people flowed around the seventh combat ring, and everyone’s gazes descended onto Duan Ling Tian.
“Elder, how about we temporarily stop the battle here? We want to see Duan Ling Tian battle as well.” After the two outer court disciples on the sixth combat ring discussed amongst themselves, they said to the outer court elder that stood at the side of the ring.
“OK. I just happened to want to see this Duan Ling Tian’s skills.” The outer court elder nodded, and didn’t have any objections.
The outer court disciples and the outer court elders that were responsible for presiding over the battles on the eighth combat ring, the ninth combat ring, and the tenth combat ring, all imitated the sixth combat ring.
