Chapter 389: Defeating A Stronger Opponent!
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
At this moment, besides the members of the Seven Star Sword Sect, the members of the other four great sects, including their Sect Leaders and Elders, all felt that this battle was without a shred of suspense.
The difference of the strength of 70 ancient mammoths were sufficient to make Duan Ling Tian suffer a crushing defeat!
“A difference of 70 ancient mammoth’s worth of strength?” On the other hand, brilliant smiles bloomed on the faces of the members of the Seven Star Sword Sect instead…
According to their knowledge, one year ago, when Duan Ling Tian killed the first level Nascent Soul Stage inner court disciple, Liu Shi Ge, on the Dubhe Peak’s life and death arena, the full strength Liu Shi Ge’s exerted was even stronger than Duan Ling Tian by over 90 ancient mammoths!
But even then, Liu Shi Ge was still killed by Duan Ling Tian.
“There’s no suspense at all.” Zheng Song’s heart that was in his throat has eased up and the corners of his mouth curled into a smile.
That day, he was spectating from the side when Duan Ling Tian killed Liu Shi Ge, and amongst the Seven Star Sword Sect members present now, no one was clearer of the conditions on that day.
Duan Ling Tian’s ability to defeat a stronger opponent was even capable of surpassing a gap of over 90 ancient mammoths in strength.
Could it be that he would be afraid of a mere difference of 70 ancient mammoth’s worth of strength?
When he swung up the grade six spirit sword and fiercely smashed it down, Duan Ling Tian felt that there was a place to vent the roiling hot blood and battle intent in his body, and he spat out a mouthful of foul air as he abruptly shouted out explosively. “Satisfying!”
The grade six spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand directly used the body of the sword to fiercely smash towards the Mountain Split Sect disciple’s rod that was swung downwards.
The grade seven spirit rod of the Mountain Split Sect disciple smashed down as if it carried a might of a 15,000 kg.
But, when he who was originally filled with confidence saw Duan Ling Tian shout out explosively and move to intercept him as if in a frenzy, he didn’t know why, but a trace of coldness had actually arisen within his heart for no reason.
Yet, he already had no choice now and could only face Duan Ling Tian’s attack head-on!
“No problem, it’s surely not a problem… My strength is 70 ancient mammoths stronger than him, and it’s sufficient to easily crush him!” The Mountain Split Sect disciple ceaselessly consoled himself.
However, when he saw Duan Ling Tian’s gaze that was filled with confidence, his mind couldn’t help but sway.
Why does Duan Ling Tian possess such strong confidence?
Could it be that he hsd confidence on defeating me in a head-on attack?
The Mountain Split Sect disciple was truly unwilling to believe this.
“No… Impossible, it’s impossible! He’s surely bluffing, surely!” At the critical moment, the thoughts of the Mountain Split Sect disciple turned and he continued to console himself.
As he gazed at the grade seven spirit rod in his hand fiercely smashing down, about to collide with the grade six spirit sword which Duan Ling Tian swung and smashed down at him…
“Ah!” The Mountain Split Sect disciple shouted explosively, wanting to use this to overcome the fear and uneasiness in his heart.
At the same time, the strength of the Mountain Split Sect disciple completely poured into the grade seven spirit rod in his hand without reservation…
The rod strike that seemed as if it had received help from god crashed downwards.
“Satisfying!” Duan Ling Tian swung out his grade six spirit sword, his arm flashed and was like a raging python swinging its tail as he smashed the spirit sword towards the descending rod.
At the same time.
Instantly, the Origin Energy on Duan Ling Tian’s spirit sword started to vibrate violently with a frequency that went higher and higher…
Right before the spirit sword collided with the rod that the Mountain Split Sect disciple fiercely smashed down, his Quake Energy had risen to the maximum limit.
Maximum Quake Energy!
Its scope of effect was the strength of 100 ancient mammoths.
In other words, in a head on battle, so long as the strength of the opponent Duan Ling Tian faced didn’t exceed his own by the strength of 100 ancient mammoths, then Quake Energy would be able to bring about an effect that was like help from the gods.
Furthermore, now, although the rod strike that the Mountain Split Sect disciple smashed downwards was approaching menacingly, it was only the strength of 70 ancient mammoths stronger than Duan Ling Tian.
It just happened to be within the Quake Energy’s scope of effect.
The rod strike smashed down by the Mountain Split Sect disciple carried along the might to tear through the sky as it fiercely smashed down.
Duan Ling Tian swung out the grade six spirit sword with grand movements, abandoning the edge of the sword as he smashed out with the sword’s body to intercept the rod that was smashing down.
The strength on the rod was comparable to the strength of 898 ancient mammoths.
The strength on the sword was comparable to the strength of 828 ancient mammoths.
The difference between the two was the strength of 70 ancient mammoths!
Right at the instant when the sword and rod flashed out and were about to collide, time seemed as if it had stopped.
“Duan Ling Tian is about to lose!”
“There’s a difference of the strength of 70 ancient mammoths between them, the outcome is without suspense.”
“Although Duan Ling Tian will suffer defeat, but it’s still a glorious defeat! It’s difficult to imagine that he’s only a 22 year old Seven Star Sword Sect disciple.”
The crowd of members from the four great sects stared fixedly at the scene before them, and their thoughts spun.
“He’s won!” Linghu Jin Hong and the two Peak Masters beside him revealed gratified smiled on their faces.
“Junior Brother Duan Ling Tian, nice work!” Zheng Song had an incomparably brilliant smile on his face.
Meng Qiu’s face revealed a smile as well. “Duan Ling Tian, nice!”
Only Huang Ji looked at Duan Ling Tian with a gaze filled with viciousness and malevolence, and his face carried an unwilling expression. “Duan Ling Tian… Duan Ling Tian! Why is the limelight always yours? WHY?!”
An ear piercing sound of rod and sword collided resounded out within the entire Martial Competition Courtyard.
Although everyone present was mentally prepared, some disciples of the various sects that possessed comparatively lower cultivations couldn’t help but go pale and they felt their eardrums almost splitting apart from the ear piercing sound.
The instant the sword and rod collided, two strands of Origin Energy crashed in collision, causing sounds of air exploding to continuously rise and fall, and the roiling airflow in the sky formed circle after circle of ripples that spread out.
Instantly, a gust of strong wind spread out from Duan Ling Tian and the Mountain Split Sect disciple, sweeping out to the surroundings.
Blowing on the clothes of the spectators, causing them to flutter as well.
But no one amongst the spectators cared about this, only because their gazes were all fixed on the two people who had just collided with each other.
They wanted to know what the final outcome was.
“Let go!” Suddenly, a stern and explosive shout entered into the ears of everyone present.
Subsequently, most people noticed to their astonishment that along with the explosive shout of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Duan Ling Tian, that Mountain Split Sect disciple followed in the footsteps of the previous Mountain Split Sect disciple that was defeated by Duan Ling Tian. His palm split open and fresh blood dripped down, and he directly tossed away the weapon in his hand.
The grade seven spirit rod crashed onto the ground an emitted an ear piercing sound, shocking most people to the point their hearts palpitated in fear.
They didn’t know what had happened.
Presently, it was probably the person concerned, the Mountain Split Sect disciple that knew exactly what happened…
He originally thought his own strength was stronger than Duan Ling Tian by 70 ancient mammoths, so he would be able to easily dominate Duan Ling Tian and defeat Duan Ling Tian.
But unexpectedly, right at the instant the spirit rod in his hand collided with Duan Ling Tian’s spirit sword, he felt the Origin Energy on his spirit rod be shaken to dispersion by a type of vibrating energy that extended out from the sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
It didn’t end at that, the terrifying vibrating energy subsequently spread to his hand from the spirit rod, then spread to his entire body, including the bones and internal organs within him.
When his Origin Energy was shaken to dispersion and the palm that held the rod split open, he’d realized that if he didn’t let go, then it was extremely likely that he would be shaken to death!
Furthermore, it was right at this moment that Duan Ling Tian let out an explosive shout, and it caused him to not dare hesitate and hurriedly toss away the grade seven spirit rod…
Now, he could understand the feelings of the other Mountain Split Sect disciple that was defeated by Duan Ling Tian earlier.
The vibrating energy that this Duan Ling Tian displayed was too bizarre, and it was impossible to guard against.
The grade six spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand trembled as he withdrew the Quake Energy, then he slapped out with the body of the sword, descending onto the Mountain Split Sect disciple that was just right before him.
The Mountain Split Sect disciple even didn’t have the chance to circulate his Origin Energy that had been shaken to dispersion when he was slapped flying by Duan Ling Tian’s sword strike, flying like an arrow leaving the bow, and he fiercely plunged to the ground with a bang.
“It was a good fight.” The Mountain Split Sect disciple didn’t utter any rude remarks to Duan Ling Tian, so Duan Ling Tian didn’t continue attacking and stopped suitably.
“You’re extremely strong, I’m utterly convinced of your strength.” The Mountain Split Sect disciple stood up with difficulty, then nodded to Duan Ling Tian with a smile before picking up his spirit rod and returning to the pergola.
Meanwhile, everyone present had recovered from their shock, their gazes descended onto Duan Ling Tian once again. It was as if they’d seen a ghost.
“Duan Ling Tian actually won with a difference of 70 ancient mammoths worth of strength?”
“Why do I feel like I’m dreaming? The side with the weaker strength was actually able to win in a head on confrontation?”
“It’s simply like they were putting on a show!”
Regardless of how the people present thought or how they doubted it, Duan Ling Tian had won. And in the end, he’d won in an open and above-board manner.
Presently, only the members of the Seven Star Sword Sect seemed to not feel surprised in the slightest.
“What is actually going on?” The Mountain Split Sect’s Sect Leader sent a voice transmission to ask the Mountain Split Sect disciple that was defeated by Duan Ling Tian, or in other words, his personal disciple. “Your strength was obviously stronger than Duan Ling Tian… In the end, why did you still lose? Why did your palm split open? Why did you toss away the spirit weapon in your hand?”
There were too many questions in the heart of the Mountain Split Sect’s Sect Leader.
The process of Duan Ling Tian defeating this personal disciple of his was no different from the process of Duan Ling Tian defeating the other Mountain Split Sect disciple from before…
If there really was a difference, then the strength of the first Mountain Split Sect disciple had a strength that was similar to Duan Ling Tian.
Whereas his personal disciple instead was defeated by Duan Ling Tian under the circumstances that he possessed a strength that was sufficient to dominate Duan Ling Tian.
He lost without any sign nor prerequisite.
Everything was just so sudden!
At this moment, the Mountain Split Sect’s Sect Leader’s mood was gloomy, he’d asked his personal disciple to challenge Duan Ling Tian as his original intention was to teach Duan Ling Tian a lesson.
After all, Duan Ling Tian had fractured the legs of his Mountain Split Sect’s disciple. Although that little injury was able to be healed by a grade seven Gold Injury Pill, it still had caused the Mountain Split Sect to lose face greatly.
But who knew, now, they hadn’t regained the face that they’d lost, but they’d lost face once again.
This caused him to be on the verge of exploding from rage!
