Chapter 377: Sudden Insight, Comprehension of Wind Force!
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Duan Ling Tian forgot the time as he cultivated.
Spring had become winter, and in the blink of an eye, 11 months had passed just like this…
Stalactite cave, atop the stone platform.
Duan Ling Tian slowly opened his eyes, and the corners of his mouth curled into a bitter smile, and he let out a long sigh. “This bottleneck is truly a headache… Hmm, I wonder how long has it been. I should go out and have a look.”
Duan Ling Tian’s figure flashed to leave the stalactite cave and stand on the tilted tree.
The Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom was at the south of Cloud Continent, thus it was difficult to see snow during the winters here.
Even then, Duan Ling Tian was still able to sense traces of coldness.
Of course, this little bit of coldness was nothing to him.
With his current strength, so long as his Origin Energy coiled around his body, he would be easily capable of withstanding severe cold…
“Unfortunately, although my cultivation has broken through to the Nascent Soul Stage, my Spiritual Force doesn’t have the slightest sign of wanting to break through.” Duan Ling Tian let out a long breath of air and was slightly feeling a sense of loss.
His Spiritual Force searched the peak of Megrez Peak for a while, then when he confirmed there were no people, Duan Ling Tian ascended the peak and headed down the mountain.
After he arrived nearby the Trade Hall, he asked about a little bit and he found out that it had already been 11 months since he went into closed door cultivation that day.
“The Sect leader said that we would leave half a month earlier for the Martial Competition this time.” At the same time that Duan Ling Tian stepped on the chain bridge, he thought in his heart. “In other words, there’s still half a month of time before I have to leave…”
After he left Megrez Peak, Duan Ling Tian first went to Alkaid Peak to see Li Fei, then he headed to Alkaid Hall on Dubhe Peak to see Ke Er.
After not meeting each other for almost a year, his heart was filled with the feeling of missing the two little girls.
Only after he met the two little girls did he find out that during the time he was in closed door cultivation, they’d come see him more than once.
This caused his heart to feel warm.
Needless to say, the feeling of being cared for was indeed nice.
After having a romp with the two little girls, Duan Ling Tian returned to the peak of Megrez Peak once more, and he stood on the tilted tree, feeling the piercingly cold wind of winter…
The Seven Star Sword Sect inner court disciples attire on Duan Ling Tian’s body fluttered, and the Origin Energy that appeared automatically to withstand the severe cold was withdrawn by him.
Instantly, the cold wind assaulted him, almost completely enveloping Duan Ling Tian within it. Icy coldness that pierced into the heart spread throughout Duan Ling Tian’s body, causing Duan Ling Tian to be unable to refrain from shivering.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath, then gritted his teeth and endured it.
He was comprehending the characteristics of wind under such a severe environment…
According to the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, if he wanted to comprehend Wind Force, then before he cultivated Whirlwind, he must have a certain degree of understanding towards the wind.
Wind was something that gathered gentleness, violent, coldness, and swiftness together.
Presently, the winter wind that Duan Ling Tian was facing contained three characteristics of wind…
Fierceness, coldness, and swiftness!
As for gentleness, that was a characteristic of a breeze.
Duan Ling Tian stood on the tilted tree for an entire day, only circulating his Origin Energy to completely remove that coldness that had invaded his body when he was freezing to the point his face went ghastly pale and he gritted his teeth tightly.
His entire body returned to warmth.
“Wind…” Duan Ling Tian closed his eyes and silently recalled the cold wind that had assaulted him for an entire day.
The cold wind was violent and ruthless, cold and bone piercing, swift and fierce.
Duan Ling Tian stood on the tilted tree like this as he gradually entered a marvelous state, seeming to have transformed into a sculpture as he stood there unmoving.
The cold wind was still piercingly cold, yet is was unable to assault and pierce through the surface of Duan Ling Tian’s body that was suffused with Origin Energy.
One day passed.
Two days passed.
Three days passed.
Duan Ling Tian finally made headway on the tenth day.
Duan Ling Tian’s figure lightly moved and a strange aura accompanied his Origin Energy to suffuse out.
“Wind… So that’s how it is.” Duan Ling Tian muttered, and the corners of his mouth bloomed into a brilliant smile.
With a raise of his hand, a strand of an extremely swift and fierce aura suffused out…
“This is Wind Force?” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
At practically the same moment, 100 plus ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared out of thin air above Duan Ling Tian…
Currently, Duan Ling Tian didn’t utilize the strength of his body or Origin Energy in the slightest.
The strength of over 100 ancient mammoths?
What’s going on?
Duan Ling Tian was curious in his heart.
According to his knowledge, even the lowest level of the Wind Force, Elementary Wind Force, was comparable to the strength of 200 ancient mammoths when utilized!
Right when Duan Ling Tian was feeling curious, the 100 plus ancient mammoth silhouettes above him suddenly reduced to become 80 plus ancient mammoths.
Then it violently increased to 100 plus again!
“What’s going on?” The scene before him caused Duan Ling Tian to be slightly dumbstruck as he completely had no idea what was going on.
“I seem to have not comprehended Wind Force… But the Wind Force also seemed to already possess traces of being completely formed.” Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts revolved abruptly.
“Normally speaking, it’s impossible for a Nascent Soul Stage martial artist to comprehend Force. Could it be that I’m being restrained by this?” Before long, Duan Ling Tian was suddenly enlightened.
“However, according to the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, the high grade Earth Rank martial skill, Whirlwind, is sufficient to assist me in comprehending Wind Force! Perhaps…” As he thought up to this point, Duan Ling Tian pushed off the tilted tree and descended onto the peak of Megrez Peak with a leap.
Presently, the peak of Megrez Peak was completely devoid of people.
Duan Ling Tian’s figure move, as if he’d transformed into wind, and he started to cultivate his new movement technique.
Although it’s said to be his new movement technique, but it actually still contained some traces of the Spirit Serpent Movement Technique…
“Whirlwind, step into the Initial Stage and one may comprehend Elementary Wind Force; step into the Mastery Stage and one may comprehend Half-step Advanced Wind Force; step into the Perfection Stage and one may comprehend Advanced Wind Force.” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian had a certain level of comprehension towards this high grade Earth Rank movement technique.
Duan Ling Tian’s figure flashed out, as if he’d transformed into a gale, sweeping through the mist and clouds that covered the sky and coiled around the peak of Megrez Peak.
His speed grew swifter and swifter!
“Let me test if I can merge that incomplete Wind Force I comprehended into Whirlwind!” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart, then the Origin Energy on his body fluctuated before it contained extra traces of a strange aura.
This aura was precisely the incomplete Wind Force that Duan Ling Tian had obtain sudden insight of after ten days…
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Compared to before, Duan Ling Tian’s speed was nearly doubled.
Not only that, along with Duan Ling Tian becoming skilled in the incomplete Wind Force he’d comprehended, he was also able to gradually merge it with his movement technique, Whirlwind.
For an entire day and night, Duan Ling Tian didn’t stop in the slightest.
If a Void Prying Stage martial artist was present, then they would surely be able to notice that the originally incomplete Wind Force on Duan Ling Tian’s body was gradually becoming completely merged with Whirlwind as Duan Ling Tian utilized them together.
Until the second day when twilight appeared in the horizon, when Duan Ling Tian’s figure flashed, the strange aura that was unstable and finally stabilized.
At the same time, 200 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared out of thin air above Duan Ling Tian who didn’t use any Origin Energy to move his body…
This was precisely the strength of Elementary Wind Force!
“Elementary Wind Force… I’ve succeeded!” When he noticed this, Duan Ling Tian stopped moved and had a jubilantly happy expression.
Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian heard a wave of light noises, and he noticed that his stomach was growling. Only now did he realize that he seemed to have not eaten for a long time.
“How many days have passed?” Duan Ling Tian who had a dazed expression started a fire on the peak of Megrez Peak before starting to roast meat and wolf it down…
At the same time that he bit on the roasted meat, Duan Ling Tian didn’t forget to recall his gains.
“According to the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, there are some people within Cloud Continent with outstanding comprehension ability that are able to comprehend incomplete Force when they were at the Nascent Soul Stage! That time of people were practically able to instantly comprehend Elementary Force when they stepped into the Void Prying Stage.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart. “As for my circumstances, according to the knowledge of Rebirth Martial Emperor, it ought to be a type of sudden insight.”
Sudden insight could be encountered by luck but not sought after.
Amongst the countless martial artists in the world, they might not have even encountered sudden insight once in their entire lifetime.
Some people were able to cause everyone around them to ascend in life once they themselves obtained sudden insight!
Although few, there were still people on Cloud Continent who’d directly comprehended Force from a sudden insight like Duan Ling Tian.
Even to the extent, there were still some people who’d just comprehended Half-step Advanced Force, then because of sudden insight, they’d directly comprehended Advanced Force!
Compared to the latter, Duan Ling Tian could be considered to be inferior.
“Sudden insight… I truly never imagined that I would have such luck.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and sighed.
Through the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian was able to perceive how difficult sudden insight was to come by.
Even the Rebirth Martial Emperor who’d experienced two lifetimes, hadn’t encountered more than 10 people who’d experienced sudden insight.
A person who’d experienced sudden insight twice was almost non-existent!
“Sudden insight is related to a person’s great fortuitous encounter… Presently, I’ve comprehended Elementary Wind Force through sudden insight. In the future, if I want to immerse myself in the state of sudden insight again, it would be practically impossible.” Flowing lights flashed within Duan Ling Tian’s eyes as he said to himself.
“Elementary Wind Force!” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian came back to his senses.
Origin Energy skyrocketed on his legs, and he didn’t hold back in the slightest.
Elementary Wind Force merged into his Origin Energy…
Above Duan Ling Tian, hundreds of ancient mammoth silhouettes had imposing manners that shot into the sky like rainbows as they followed Duan Ling Tian to flash out.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian’s entire body seemed to have transformed into a gale, sweeping away all the clouds and mist surrounding the peak of Megrez Peak.
For a moment, all the clouds and mist atop the peak of Megrez Peak had dispersed, vanishing without a trace.
“Satisfying!” At the same time that he dashed, Duan Ling Tian had the feeling as if he was racing with the wind, causing his mood to feel at ease.
“Presently, this high grade Earth Rank movement technique, Whirlwind, can be considered to have officially stepped into the Initial Stage! As expected of a high grade Earth Rank movement technique, it’s far from something those high grade Profound Rank movement techniques can compare to.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
