Chapter 447: Soul Skill, Thousand Illusion
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Moreover, even if Linghu Jin Hong really wanted to interfere in this battle, then not to mention Zither Young Master wouldn’t agree to it, even he wouldn’t agree.
“Duan Ling Tian, looks like you’ve already given up… Don’t worry, I’ll take good care of Ke Er after you’re dead.” Zither Young Master looked at Duan Ling Tian and revealed a complacent smile.
“Dead?” Duan Ling Tian wasn’t afraid in the slightest when facing Zither Young Master, and he said indifferently, “Zither Young Master, talking big now seems to be slightly too hasty, right? Who will die is still uncertain.” As he spoke, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes squinted.
Two dim lights that were difficult to notice and seemed like nether flames were jumping about deep within Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, and they emitted strands of a strong aura of the soul.
This was the reason that Duan Ling Tian wasn’t afraid in the slightest when facing Zither Young Master who had stepped into the Half-step Void Stage.
He wasn’t afraid of Zither Young Master!
Duan Ling Tian’s words caused the crowd of Seven Star Sword Sect disciples that had fallen into deathly silence to be greatly shocked in their hearts.
“What does Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian mean by this? Could it be that he is confident in dealing with Zither Young Master?”
“It’s impossible… Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian had admitted himself that he hasn’t broken through to the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage. Moreover, even if he’d broken through to the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage, it would still be impossible for him to be a match for Zither Young Master who was at the half-step Void Stage.”
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian wouldn’t have gone mad, right?”
Many Seven Star Sword Sect disciples were dumbstruck.
“Hmm?” Only the dim eyes of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Leader, Linghu Jin Hong, and Mizar Peak’s Master, Zheng Fan, lit up with a bright light.
They were naturally able to discern that Duan Ling Tian wasn’t mad.
“Sect Leader, could it be that this little fellow really has a way to defeat Zither Young Master?” Zheng Fan was shocked in his heart and he couldn’t refrain from communicating with Linghu Jing Hong via voice transmission, as if only when he obtained the confirmation from Linghu Jin Hong would he be at ease.
Earlier, he was extremely aggrieved in his heart when he saw Duan Ling Tian was in deadly danger as he couldn’t do anything.
The misgivings of the Sect Leader was similarly his misgivings.
“I don’t know… Logically speaking, it isn’t too possible. But Duan Ling Tian has always been creating miracles… Perhaps he can give us a pleasant surprise this time.” Linghu Jin Hong shook his head, as his gaze that was filled with anticipation descended onto Duan Ling Tian who was in the life and death arena.
Zheng Fan nodded and looked at Duan Ling Tian in anticipation.
“Shameless boasting!” Zither Young Master’s face sank when he heard Duan Ling Tian, then abruptly shouted out explosively. “Then let me see how a kid that hasn’t even stepped into the seventh level of the Nascent Soul Stage kills me!” As soon as he finished speaking, Zither Young Master flashed out.
Origin Energy raged atop the fingers on his right hand, then he abruptly pressed his hand onto the spirit zither he held in his left hand.
Instantly, Origin Energy skyrocketed atop the spirit zither!
Above Zither Young Master, another 726 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared by the side of the existing 1,500 ancient mammoth silhouettes…
This was the amplified strength of the grade five spirit zither!
In that instant Zither Young Master flicked his finger, wanting to prod the zither string to attack Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes squinted, and a dim light abruptly lit up deep within his eyes, seeming like two balls of nether flames that were ready to shoot out at any time, and it rose out explosively…
When Duan Ling Tian commanded in his heart, the soul brand deep within Duan Ling Tian’s soul had moved.
A steady flow of Spiritual Force fused into the soul brand, then followed along the dim lights in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes to pour out and sweep towards Zither Young Master, or precisely speaking, sweeping towards that half of the life and death arena that Zither Young Master was standing on.
At this moment, in the world in the eyes of Zither Young Master.
Duan Ling Tian stood there unmoving.
Along with him prodding the zither string and the zither string that seems like a sharp arrow shot out, and it fiercely pierced through Duan Ling Tian’s throat as if piercing through rotten wood…
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian crashed onto the ground and was completely without any sign of life.
“Hahahaha…” Zither Young Master started laughing as he looked at Duan Ling Tian’s corpse in contempt, and his voice was filled with arrogance. “Duan Ling Tian, I’ve told you since long ago, you and I are utterly not on the same level… You weren’t even able to block a strike of mine! Now that you’re dead, Ke Er is the woman of I, Zither Young Master, from now on. Hahahaha…”
Whereas currently, the surroundings of the life and death arena were deathly silent.
Including all the Seven Star Sword Sect higher-ups and all the disciples, they were completely dumbstruck as they gazed at Zither Young Master who stood on the life and death arena and was laughing arrogantly as he spoke to himself.
Isn’t Duan Ling Tian standing there all fine?
Why would this Zither Young Master say Duan Ling Tian is dead?
“Hahahaha…” In the life and death arena, Zither Young Master’s laughter still continued, and he seemed as if he was completely mad.
Whereas Duan Ling Tian stood at a side of the life and death arena with a calm expression as he gazed at Zither Young Master who ceaselessly laughed loudly on the other side of the life and death arena, and a wisp of disdain appeared on the corners of his mouth.
“So what if you’re at the Half-step Void Stage? You’re not at the Void Prying Stage in the end… Even if you were at the first level of the Void Prying Stage, when faced with the Thousand Illusions I executed with the soul brand and relying on my first level Void Prying Stage Spiritual Force, so long as you’re not an Inscription Master, then you’ll be unable to defend against it as well!”
At this moment, amongst the people present, it was probably only Duan Ling Tian that knew what had happened.
Duan Ling Tian had executed the soul skill he’d mastered not long ago…
This soul skill was comprehended through the soul brand he’d obtained that day within the abode beneath the Soulcleanse Pool, and it was a type of auxiliary interference type soul skill.
This type of soul skill could only use Spiritual Force to build an illusion space at will, but was unable to be used to attack directly.
Duan Ling Tian had given this soul skill a name.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force was comparable to the Spiritual Force of an ordinary first level Void Prying Stage martial artist, and once he executed the soul skill, Thousand Illusion, no martial artist below the Void Prying Stage was able to withstand it.
So long as a first level Void Prying Stage martial artist wasn’t an Inscription Master, then the martial artist would similarly be unable to withstand it.
If it was a first level Void Prying Stage Inscription Master, then the martial artist would instead be able to break open Duan Ling Tian’s Thousand Illusion with his Spiritual Force and not be disturbed by it.
Whereas even if they weren’t Inscription Masters, Duan Ling Tian’s Thousand Illusions would be completely unable to affect martial artists at the second level Void Prying Stage and above.
Only because the Spiritual Force of a second level Void Prying Stage martial artist was far stronger than Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force!
It was difficult for Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force to affect a stronger Spiritual Force.
“Although Thousand Illusion isn’t an attack type soul skill, yet it’s sufficient to cause someone who possesses a Spiritual Force that’s inferior to me to be lost within the illusion space I built by relying on the soul brand, and become a piece of meat on my chopping block, completely at my mercy.”
Duan Ling Tian took a large stride forward and arrived behind Zither Young Master in the blink of an eye.
Whereas Zither Young Master seemed as if he didn’t notice in the slightest, and still stood there ceaselessly laughing out loudly.
This scene caused the surrounding spectators to feel a chill run down their spines.
“What happened earlier?” The voices of many Seven Star Sword Sect disciples contained slight trembling within.
“I don’t know… That Zither Young Master missed at the beginning when he attacked Duan Ling Tian. At that time, he was like a blind person, and the zither string he plucked out flashed towards the other side that was completely empty. Subsequently, he suddenly started laughing, and even spoke to himself saying that Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian was already dead.”
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian is obviously still fine and standing there… Why would Zither Young Master say Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian is dead? Could it be that he’s lost his mind?”
“It’s impossible, right? I’ve never heard that Zither Young Master has such an illness.”
The crowd of Seven Star Sword Sect disciples whispered in discussion, and they felt their hairs stand on end.
The feeling Zither Young Master gave them now was too strange!
“Dammit! What’s going on? Why is it like this?” Zhao Lin’s expression was incomparably unsightly, as he originally thought that Duan Ling Tian would die in the hands of Zither Young Master, but who knew that such a bizarre incident would suddenly occur.
That Zither Young Master had actually lost his mind!
“Zither Young Master! Zither Young Master!” When he saw Duan Ling Tian approaching Zither Young Master, yet Zither Young Master hadn’t reacted, Zhao Lin was anxious and hurriedly sent a voice transmission to warm Zither Young Master, wanting to rouse Zither Young Master.
He wanted to use Zither Young Master to kill Duan Ling Tian.
But his voice transmission was like a rock sinking into the ocean, and it was entirely of no use.
Zither Young Master still stood there laughing arrogantly.
The remaining Seven Star Sword Sect higher-ups were completely dumbstruck as well, as the scene before them had exceeded their scope of understanding.
“Looks like Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian’s luck isn’t bad… This Zither Young Master actually had an attack of his illness at the critical moment.” Mo Yu’s face revealed a smile and he thought that Zither Young Master was sick in the first place.
“This Duan Ling Tian is actually so lucky…” Hu Xue Feng’s face slightly sank, and coldness arose within his eyes.
On the life and death arena, Duan Ling Tian stood behind Zither Young Master, and the Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword appeared out of thin air and was about to descended onto the side of Zither Young Master’s neck in a moment…
As long as he slightly exerted force, Zither Young Master would die for sure.
“Duan Ling Tian, don’t be rash!” Right when Duan Ling Tian’s gaze went slightly cold and he intended to swing his sword and kill Zither Young Master who had fallen into the illusions space he built with his Spiritual Force and soul brand, the anxious voice transmission of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Sect Leader, Linghu Jin Hong, entered into his ears.
Duan Ling Tian frowned.
Earlier, this Zither Young Master, Zi Shang, didn’t show mercy to him in the slightest, and even talked nonsense many times, disrespecting his fiancée, Ke Er.
As far as he was concerned, Zither Young Master was already a dead man.
“Duan Ling Tian, the background of this Zither Young Master isn’t simple… That Master of his is an expert that’s at least at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage! If you kill him, you’ll surely enrage that expert. At that time, not only you, even our Seven Star Sword Sect would probably be unable to escape calamity.” Linghu Jin Hong’s voice transmission was filled with fear.
Duan Ling Tian’s face sank.
Although Duan Ling Tian realized that Zither Young Master’s Master wasn’t simple since long ago, Duan Ling Tian never expected that he wasn’t simple to this extent.
An existence at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage or above?
Even the Seven Star Sword Sect might not have such an existence, right?
Now, Duan Ling Tian finally understood why Linghu Jin Hong would be so afraid of the Master of Zither Young Master.
“Hmph!” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze went slightly cold and the Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword in his hand trembled, then he slapped Zither Young Master’s back with the body of the blade, fiercely slapping Zither Young Master flying.
Zither Yang Master was blasted out of the illusions space built by the soul skill, Thousand Illusions, and fell heavily outside the life and death arena.
“Ah!” Zither Young Master let out a shrill cry and he finally became clear-headed.
