Chapter 302: Advance
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
The five seventh level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples that stood on the first to the fifth combat rings, including He Dong, shot their gazes towards Duan Ling Tian.
They were extremely interested in Duan Ling Tian as well.
A young man that’s a little over 20 had killed a sixth level Origin Core Stage disciple on the Phecda Peak’s life and death arena three months ago.
They’d heard of this.
Supposedly, the young man didn’t utilize an inscription that day, and completely relied on his own strength to kill his opponent.
At least, they felt that at that age, it would be absolutely impossible for them to do this.
“Duan Ling Tian.” Lu Qiu stood at the side of the third combat ring, and his gaze descended onto the seventh combat ring, focusing on that figure that remained rooted to the ground.
He saw the hope of the Megrez Peak on this young man, he saw the hope of the Seven Star Sword Sect!
At the side of the fourth combat ring, Zhao Lin’s face sank as he snorted lowly, and his eyes emitted an awe-inspiring cold light.
As far as he was concerned, the only reason Duan Ling Tian had such achievements at such an age was because Duan Ling Tian cultivated that miraculous cultivation method, the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll.
If Duan Ling Tian didn’t cultivate that cultivation method, he might not have such accomplishments.
So he wanted to obtain that cultivation method no matter what!
At any cost!
Using every means possible!
In the seventh combat ring, Duan Ling Tian raised his hand and a three foot long blade appeared out of thin air…
This was a grade seven spirit sword.
Duan Ling Tian’s opponent, the sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple was a young man around the age of 26 or 27. He felt slightly nervous in his heart when faced against Duan Ling Tian who had a carefree expression, and the hand which held his grade seven spirit sword was slightly wet.
That was cold sweat.
Even though Duan Ling Tian was only a young man that was a little over 20, he brought an extremely huge pressure to him, to the point that he couldn’t catch his breath.
This was an existence that had once killed a sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple!
Moreover, the strength of the sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple wasn’t inferior to him.
“You… You won’t kill me, right?” Under the gazes of everyone present, the young man gulped down a mouthful of saliva, and asked slightly difficulty.
“Of course not. There’s no ill feelings between the two of us, why would I kill you? Besides that, aren’t there elders looking from the side?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and laughed bitterly, as he never imagined that he’d waited so long to for his turn in the ring, but what he got were these words from his opponent. He was speechless in his heart.
Do I look like that type of fierce person that kills people easily?
“Hehe.” The young man laughed embarrassedly, and under the shroud of the extremely impatient gazes from the surroundings, he finally moved.
The young man’s figure moved, his footsteps incomparably light, as he pulled out a string of afterimages, and flashed to Duan Ling Tian’s location in an instant.
Above him, 80 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form.
A sword strike flashed out as if transforming into a bolt of thunder that appeared for a short instant, and it smashed down towards Duan Ling Tian with an imposing manner that can pierce through the sky.
In the sky, another 21 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared beside the 80 ancient mammoth silhouettes.
This sword strike contained the strength of 101 ancient mammoths!
Duan Ling Tian stood on the spot with a calm expression.
When the young man arrived before, Duan Ling Tian’s outer court disciple’s attire was blown by the wind caused by his opponents swiftly moving figure, causing it to flutter and whistle in the wind.
“Duan Ling Tian still isn’t making a move?” The spectating crowd wondered in their hearts when they saw the young man’s sword transform into a bolt of thunder, smashing down towards Duan Ling Tian.
Finally, Duan Ling Tian moved.
Sword Drawing Arts!
Everyone only felt something flash before their eyes, when a sword light that was swift to the limit instantly moved to intercept the sword strike of the young man that had transformed into a bolt of thunder.
Above Duan Ling Tian, only 90 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared.
In other words, Duan Ling Tian was using the strength of a fifth level Origin Core Stage martial artist, and relying on his grade seven spirit sword to execute the sword skill.
At this instant, all the surrounding spectators held their breaths.
The strength of Duan Ling Tian’s sword strike had a difference of strength of 11 ancient mammoths compared to his opponent…
Could he win?
If it was before, no one would think Duan Ling Tian was able to win.
But three months ago, Duan Ling Tian had once used this strength to kill a sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist…
The grade seven spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand knocked onto the young man’s grade seven spirit sword had transformed into a bolt of thunder.
The two terrifying forced knocked each other, causing the air to shake.
A smile appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth.
The young man’s sword descended, and he felt that Duan Ling Tian’s strength seemed to be far weaker than his strength, and his face couldn’t help but reveal an ecstatic expression!
He was about to defeat Duan Ling Tian!
He was excited in his heart, but in next to no time, the smile on his face froze.
Because he noticed that a terrifying vibration energy suddenly surged out from Duan Ling Tian’s grade seven spirit sword, and the frequency at which the energy vibrated became higher and higher!
“Let go!” An explosive shout sounded in his ears, and the young man whose palm gripped his sword had split apart and was hesitating whether to let go of his sword or not, now didn’t dare hesitate as he hurriedly let go.
After Duan Ling Tian warned the young man, the grade seven spirit sword in his hand trembled and flicked away his opponent’s grade seven spirit sword to crash onto the ground with a clang.
If Duan Ling Tian’s opponent didn’t let go, then the bones in his entire body would have surely been shattered by the Quake Energy!
The Origin Energy vibrating at a terrifying frequency on the grade seven spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand was withdrawn stealthily by him, then the spirit sword transformed into a bolt of lightning that descended onto the young man’s throat.
The match was decided!
The young man stood on the spot, the palm that he held his sword with had split apart, and fresh blood dripped onto the ground, but he instead seemed to have no reaction whatsoever.
Cold sweat was ceaselessly coming out from his forehead.
Even though he lost, but he didn’t feel a sense of loss in the slightest, and instead felt rejoiced that he didn’t die.
The outer court elder at the side of the seventh combat ring was the first to recover from his shock and he restrained the shock on his face as he announced. “Number 189, Duan Ling Tian, is victorious! He becomes the Ring Master of the seventh combat ring.”
A stone causes a thousand ripples.
“Simply too strange! Duan Ling Tian used a sword strike he swung out with the strength of 90 ancient mammoths to actually suppress an attack executed with the strength of 101 ancient mammoths!”
“Truly beyond belief! Three months ago, Duan Ling Tian used a weaker force to defeat a stronger enemy, and killed Shao Ying on the Phecda Peak’s life and death arena… Now, he once again used a weaker force to defeat a stronger enemy, and defeated our Megrez Peak’s sixth level Origin Core Stage martial artist.”
“Too terrifying! At Duan Ling Tian’s age, even the most outstanding five great Young Masters of our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s young generation seems to have been far less heaven defying!”
“Of course. Looks like our Seven Star Sword Sect has really gotten a peerless monster this time!”
All the outer court disciples had shocked expressions.
Their gazes were extremely complicated, but even more, it was gazes of joy!
Duan Ling Tian was an outer court disciple of their Megrez Peak!
In the future, even if Duan Ling Tian became an inner court disciple and headed to the main peak, Dubhe Peak, he would still have come from their Megrez Peak, and would be the pride of their Megrez Peak.
“What a strange skill.” He Dong stood on the first combat ring, and looked at Duan Ling Tian who had put away his sword and stood there in a proud and aloof manner, and a trace of shock appeared on his face.
The other four seventh level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples now looked at each other as well.
“Did you all see any inklings from his sword strike?” One of the seventh level Origin Core Stage outer court disciples couldn’t refrain from asking.
Including He Dong, all the other four of them shook their heads.
Actually, it wasn’t just them, even the 10 outer court elders of Megrez Peak weren’t able to see through what was special about Duan Ling Tian’s sword strike…
“What a terrifying skill!” Zhao Lin’s burning gaze seemed as if able to see through Duan Ling Tian’s body, and his mood surged, unable to calm down for a long time. “Even I can’t see through the skill this Duan Ling Tian executed, but, I can be sure that it ought to be a skill from within the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scrolls… The Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll, I must obtain it!”
At this moment, Zhao Lin seemed as if he’d become a devil.
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian felt Zhao Lin’s gaze, and his body slightly inclined, his eyes just happening to cross Zhao Lin’s.
He saw the madness and greed in Zhao Lin’s eyes.
“This Zhao Lin… He really is going on and on!” Duan Ling Tian’s face sank, as he naturally was able to guess Zhao Lin’s thoughts. Zhao Lin probably had attributed all the miracles that happened on him towards that fictitious cultivation method that he made up, the Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll.
“I wonder, what sort of expression Zhao Lin would have if he knew that there was no Muscle Meridian Rebirth Scroll in this world.” Duan Ling Tian thought inwardly, and cold smile appeared on the corners of his mouth.
“Ssss~” Amongst the spectating outer court disciples, one of the outer court disciples was stunned for a very long time before unable to stop himself from letting out a breath of cold air in the end.
He, was precisely Tang Bai!
He was the Tang Bai who was once entrusted by Zhao Lin to look for trouble with Duan Ling Tian, and he agreed to Duan Ling Tian’s invitation to a battle on the life and death arena, but didn’t dare come on the day.
That time, Tang Bai had heard of the news of Duan Ling Tian killing the Phecda Peak’s sixth level Origin Core Stage outer court disciple, Shao Ying, and it was because of this that he didn’t dare come and carry out a battle on the life and death arena with Duan Ling Tian…
Now when he thought back to it, Tang Bai suddenly felt that he was so wise!
Even though during these past three months, he’d suffered much contempt and he was extremely aggrieved in his heart, but now, the grievances in his heart vanished.
Compared to his life and possessions, everything else wasn’t worthy of being mentioned.
The first round of the outer court martial competition continued.
For a time, the seventh combat ring which Duan Ling Tian was at, was similar to the first to the fifth combat rings, and had become a forbidden area that no one dared set foot in.
There wasn’t another outer court disciple that was allocated to the seventh combat ring that dared ascend to the seventh combat ring to battle Duan Ling Tian.
They all admitted defeat, and waited for the Ring Masters of the remaining four combat rings to be born.
At that time, so long as they had the strength, they would still be able to obtain the chance to advance.
Duan Ling Tian stood in the seventh combat ring, and looked left and right in boredom, sometimes looking at the elimination battle of the sixth combat ring, sometimes looks at the eighth combat ring, the ninth combat ring, and the tenth combat ring…
Time silently elapsed.
In the time of merely a morning, the 10 Megrez Peak disciples with the strongest strength and had obtained advancement had been born.
Among the 10 Megrez Peak disciples, five were at the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage, and four were at the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage.
The remaining one person was Duan Ling Tian, who was at the fifth level of the Origin Core Stage!
