Chapter 317: Seventh Level Origin Core Stage!
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Hiss hiss~” The two little pythons hung on Xue Nai’s white wrists as they ceaselessly nodded to Duan Ling Tian, and their eyes had a sheen of reluctance to part with him mixed within…
But unfortunately, even until they were flown out of Duan Ling Tian’s line of sight by Xue Nai, Duan Ling Tian’s attention didn’t descend onto them.
Only because at this moment, Duan Ling Tian stood stupefied on the tilted tree.
“Xue Nai… Is a Void Stage expert?” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but fiercely gulp down a mouthful of saliva, and the shock in his heart was at its limit.
The yellow clothed young girl, Han Xue Nai, gave him too huge of a shock!
When Han Xue Nai had only just appeared, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force didn’t notice a trace of something amiss in her, and even determined that Han Xue Nai was only an extremely ordinary young girl…
But earlier, the scene of Han Xue Nai controlling the air to fly and leave allowed him to deeply realize that he’d misjudged her!
Not only was Han Xue Nai not an ordinary young girl, but she was a formidable Void Stage expert!
“Logically speaking, with my current Spiritual Force, if I was facing a martial artist face to face, then even if it was a ninth level Void Prying Stage martial artist, I would still be able to slightly pry into the martial artist’s cultivation… I was unable to discern Xue Nai’s cultivation. Unless she’s an expert at the Void Initiation Stage or above. Or perhaps she used some sort of Secret Technique to conceal the aura of her Void Stage cultivation’s aura.” Duan Ling Tian currently pondered a myriad of thoughts and ideas, and his state of mind still hadn’t recovered.
Comparing these two possibilities, he leant more towards the latter…
Han Xue Nai was a Void Prying Stage expert, and she used a Secret Technique to conceal her cultivation, and make his Spiritual Force be unable to discern it.
If it was the former, it was truly difficult for Duan Ling Tian to imagine, and was beyond belief.
Because, according the lifetime worth of memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, it wasn’t impossible to step into the Void Prying Stage at the age of 15 or 16…
Just like some of the formidable powers that stood at the peak of Cloud Continent, their resources were incomparably abundant, and the treasures of heaven and earth that they’d stored and accumulated were countless.
Even calling them extremely rich wasn’t sufficient to describe them!
The wealth they possessed was something that even Martial Emperors would covet.
Of course, at the same time that these powers controlled so much of treasures of heaven and earth, their reserves were extremely terrifying, and there was no lack of existences at the Martial Emperor Stage within those powers.
If these formidable powers were willing to put emphasis on fostering a descendant, then they were completely able to use the countless treasures of heaven and earth on the descendant. Thus, allowing one to step into the Void Prying Stage at the age of 15 or 16 wasn’t difficult…
Although extremely rare throughout Cloud Continent, but a 15 or 16 year old Void Prying Stage martial artist wasn’t non-existent!
However, according to the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, a 15 or 16 year old Void Initiation Stage martial artist was practically impossible.
Because it wasn’t purely the transformation of one’s strength when going from the Void Prying Stage to the Void Initiation Stage, and was a transformation of a type of Force…
Precisely because of this, it was possible for a 15 or 16 year old ninth level Void Prying Stage martial artist to appear, but a 15 or 16 year old first level Void Initiation Stage martial artist was practically impossible!
Because that transformation of Force related to comprehension.
Comprehension was normally said, comprehension in the Martial Dao.
Comprehension in the Martial Dao was separate from natural talent in the Martial Dao, but they were both supplementary to each other…
Just like martial artists below the Void Prying Stage, if their comprehension ability was high, then the speed they cultivated martial skills and the advancement of martial skills was extremely swift… Conversely, if their comprehension ability was low, then the speed they cultivated martial skill and the advancement of martial skill would be extremely slow.
As for martial artists at the Void Prying Stage or above, the level of comprehension ability even affected the comprehension of Force.
So, when a martial artist cultivated, natural talent and comprehension ability could not be lacked.
A person’s cultivation could be piled up by countless treasures of heaven and earth… But would at most be piled up until the ninth level of the Void Prying Stage.
Because once one steps into the ninth level of the Void Prying Stage, if the comprehension of Force hasn’t reached a certain level, then it would be impossible to break through to the Void Initiation Stage!
All this was something Duan Ling Tian found out from the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
And according to the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, even if a 15 or 16 year old martial artists’ comprehension was any higher, it would still be impossible to comprehend Force to the extent of being able to break through to the Void Initiation Stage…
So, Duan Ling Tian determined that Han Xue Nai ought to be an existence at the Void Prying Stage, and wasn’t a Void Initiation Stage expert!
After all, Han Xue Nai was too young.
Young to the point it was shocking.
But even then, the shock in Duan Ling Tian’s heart was still as before, and was difficult to calm down.
A 15 or 16 year old Void Prying Stage…
A wisp of a bitter smile appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth as he suddenly felt that compared to Han Xue Nai, his cultivation was nothing.
“No wonder Han Xue Nai said her home was at an extremely far place… A power that’s able to foster a 15 or 16 year old Void Prying Stage expert is surely a formidable power in the Foreign Lands! To think that I was still guessing from which top power in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom she came from.” As he finished thinking, Duan Ling Tian laughed in self ridicule as he realized that he had still underestimated Xue Nai.
“Also, no wonder those two little fellows wanted to follow Xue Nai and that Qing Nu… Xue Nai’s strength is already so strong, since that Qing Nu is a demon beasts that’s guarding by her side, it would surely be an extremely terrifying existence.
“Perhaps it’s a Void Initiation Stage demon beast. Or perhaps… A Void Interpretation Stage demon beast, or even a Void Transformation Stage demon beast!”
Duan Ling Tian let out a breath of cold air, and he truly realized how terrifying Xue Nai’s background was.
“Who the heck is Xue Nai? And what sort of identity does she have?” At the same time that Duan Ling Tian’s heart was filled with shock, it was also filled with curiosity.
Xue Nai was too mysterious.
Mysterious to the point it caused one to be shocked in their heart…
After some time, Duan Ling Tian returned to his senses, and let out a breath of air, then returned into the stalactite cave.
Meanwhile, he couldn’t help but think about the two little pythons, and his face revealed trace of a bitter smile…
Parting with the two little fellows today, he wondered when they would meet again.
“At that time, I wonder to what extent they would have grown.” A trace of anticipation arose within Duan Ling Tian’s heart, anticipation towards seeing the two little pythons again in the future.
After being silent for a while, Duan Ling Tian returned to his senses, and his gaze descended onto the Spatial Ring in his hand.
“Profound Origin Fruit!” Without any hesitation, Duan Ling Tian withdrew a spirit fruit from his Spatial Ring, the biggest gain he obtained from the outer court martial competition this time.
As for the other prizes for the first place in the outer court martial competition, it was nothing more than a pile of Origin Strengthening Pills and some other medicinal pills.
In the eyes of ordinary outer court disciples, these medicinal pill would perhaps be extremely valuable, but in the eyes of Duan Ling Tian, they were a pile of trash.
A pile of trash medicinal pills with purity that caused him to feel extremely dissatisfied.
“I’ll go to the Trade Hall later and sell away these medicinal pills.” At the same time that Duan Ling Tian planned in his heart, his gaze descended onto the spirit fruit in his hand.
This spirit fruit, the Profound Origin Fruit, was completely milky white, and its surface flickered with a light sheen. One was able to see how extraordinary it was with just a glance…
Duan Ling Tian took up the Profound Origin Fruit and directly took a bite.
The juices of the Profound Origin Fruit were cool and refreshing as it entered the mouth, and the flesh of the fruit dissolved upon entering his mouth.
After a short moment, Duan Ling Tian had completely eaten the Profound Origin Fruit in a few bites, and at the same time, a warm energy circulated along the circulation pathways of the Wyrm Python Form mental cultivation method.
Time after time, without stopping in the slightest…
After an unknown amount of time, Duan Ling Tian could clearly feel that the medicinal strength of the Profound Origin Fruit was gradually merging with the Origin Energy in his body at an extremely swift speed.
After his Origin Energy merged with the medicinal strength of the Profound Origin Fruit, it gradually strengthened.
His cultivation at the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage that he had broken through to not long ago was increasing at the extremely swift speed…
Before long, is was at the bottleneck before the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage.
Because the sixth level of the Origin Core Stage and the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage was a divide, so this bottleneck could be said to be the biggest cultivation bottleneck for an Origin Core Stage martial artist.
Once he charged through this bottleneck, his strength would increase by the strength of 20 ancient mammoths!
Although the first charge through the bottleneck wasn’t successful, but Duan Ling Tian wasn’t anxious.
Only a third of the medicinal strength of the Profound Origin Fruit had been utilized…
The second charge!
The bottle neck loosened, but wasn’t broken through.
The third charge!
Still a little bit more.
Even Duan Ling Tian didn’t know how many times he charged at the bottleneck, and only until the two thirds of the medicinal strength of the Profound Origin Fruit was used did the vast Origin Energy within his body surged to eventually charge through that bottleneck.
The bottleneck was charged through, and all his Origin Energy experienced a tremendous change.
The Origin Energy poured into the Dantian, and the Origin Core within the Dantian underwent a change, and it enlarged slightly.
Seventh level of the Origin Core Stage!
Duan Ling Tian’s mood surged and was slightly excited.
He never imagined that it had only been a few days since he broke through, and he relied on a treasure of heaven and earth that could be chanced upon by luck but not sought for like the Profound Origin Fruit, to once again break through to the seventh level of the Origin Core Stage.
All of this seemed like a dream to him.
But Duan Ling Tian was clear in his heart that all this wasn’t a dream.
He didn’t awaken from his cultivation, because a third of the medicinal strength of the Profound Origin Fruit still remained…
The Profound Origin Fruit was a miraculous spirit fruit, but its medicinal strength was extremely volatile, if Duan Ling Tian didn’t absorb these medicinal strength now, then probably not even half would remain of it in another few days.
The Profound Origin Fruit was unable to compare to the Monkey Wine and Monkey King Wine after all.
The later was brewed by the Stone Monkeys, and had already condensed the medicinal strength of various spirit fruits together. It wasn’t much different to a medicinal pill.
Whereas the Profound Origin Fruit was a natural spirit fruit that hadn’t been tampered with in any way.
Once this type of spirit fruit was consumed, one must completely absorb its medicinal strength at this first possible moment.
The Origin Energy in Duan Ling Tian’s body continued to strengthen, and when it was soon to approach the bottleneck to breakthrough to the eighth level of the Origin Core Stage, the medicinal strength of the Profound Origin Fruit was finally completely absorbed by him.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian opened his eyes.
A fierce and sharp bright light flashed within.
“Seventh level of the Origin Core Stage!” Duan Ling Tian’s face revealed a smile.
