Chapter 539: Mysterious Blood
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Duan Ling Tian sized up the Earth Bear with interest.
Presently, the old man that presided over the Caged Battle Arena seemed to be helpless against the Earth Bear and allowed it to be restless.
He didn’t dare strike a heavy blow onto the Earth Bear, as it still had to earn money for the Caged Battle Arena.
If the Earth Bear were to be injured by him, then another would surely gain an unfair advantage against it in the subsequent cage battle.
“Guests, this is a fourth level Void Prying Stage demon beast, Earth Bear… If any fourth level Void Prying Stage guest is interested, feel free to enter the arena and battle the Earth Bear!” The old man’s voice sounded out clearly.
“Not only is this Earth Bear at the fourth level of the Void Prying Stage, it had even comprehended Half-step Advanced Earth Force… It’s extremely difficult for a fourth level Void Prying Stage martial artist to kill it without relying on any external source of strength.”
“Yeah, if a fourth level Void Prying Stage martial artist encountered this Earth Bear, then the chances of surviving was near to zero!”
“I’m afraid no one would dare enter the arena.”
Many people discussed animatedly.
“If no one enters the arena, then will the Caged Battle Arena send out a fourth level Void Prying Stage slave to have a cage battle with this Earth Bear?” Duan Ling Tian asked Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai curiously.
“Impossible!” Luo Zhan shook his head. “You’re hoping for too much… Once a demon beast or slave at the first level of the Void Prying Stage and above enters into the arena and isn’t challenged by someone, they would directly leave the arena! Then, a Nascent Soul Stage slave and demon beast would enter the arena instead.”
Chen Shao Shuai nodded as well. “Exactly! No matter if it was a slave or demon beast, existences at the Void Prying Stage and above were an enormous wealth to the Caged Battle Arena. The Caged Battle Arena would usually not allow a slave and demon beast at the first level of the Void Prying Stage or above to fight and kill each other.”
Duan Ling Tian came to a sudden understanding.
“Just like now, if no fourth level Void Prying Stage challenges the Earth Bear, the Earth Bear would be taken out of the arena by members of the Caged Battle Arena… And they wouldn’t find a fourth level Void Prying Stage slave to enter the arena and lose his life!” Luo Zhan added.
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Duan Ling Tian, unless you hold back your strength and want to take a beating… Otherwise, it isn’t difficult for you to kill this Earth Bear.” Chen Shai Shuai said with a smile.
Luo Zhan nodded with deep agreement, as he was extremely clear of Duan Ling Tian’s strength.
Not to mention his cultivation at the fourth level of the Void Prying Stage, Duan Ling Tian had even comprehended two types of Half-step Advanced Force.
An ordinary fourth level Void Prying Stage martial artist or demon beast being able to comprehend one type of Half-step Advanced Force was already considered to be possessing shocking comprehension.
But Duan Ling Tian instead had directly comprehended two types.
His comprehension could be called monstrous!
“There’s no rush, let’s first see what reward the person that kills the Earth Bear is able to obtain from the Caged Battle Arena.” Duan Ling Tian smiled lightly and his gaze descended onto the old man in the arena.
Meanwhile, the old man raised his hand, and a drop of fiery red liquid appeared in his hand.
The fiery red liquid flickered with a fine light, and it seemed especially dazzling like a crimson star in the night sky.
“If a fourth level Void Prying Stage guest is able to kill this Earth Bear, then the guest will be able to obtain this drop of mysterious blood…” The old man’s voice slowly sounded out.
“Mysterious blood?” The old man’s words aroused the interest of the group of spectators.
“What is this mysterious blood? What use does it have?” Instantly, many spectators asked in loud voices.
“Good question.” The old man said with a smile, “This drop of mysterious blood was obtained by Prince Sheng many years ago by chance… This drop of mysterious blood is something that even a grade five Alchemist’s Pill Fire was completely helpless against it!”
As soon as the old man finished speaking.
Hiss! Hiss! Hiss! Hiss! Hiss!
The sounds of gasping rose and fell endlessly in the surroundings of the arena.
Even the Pill Fire of a grade five Alchemist was helpless against the mere drop of blood?
“Is it really true?” Many spectators spoke out in doubt.
After all, the Pill Fire of a grade five Alchemist was almost able to melt everything they knew of…
That was a grade five Pill Fire!
Unless it was a rare material of legend, otherwise, there were very little things that a grade five Pill Fire was unable to melt.
“Even if everyone doesn’t believe our Caged Battle Arena, you ought to believe Prince Sheng’s Estate, right?” The old man smiled lightly as he continued. “Not only is a grade five Alchemist’s grade five Pill Fire unable to do anything to this drop of mysterious blood… Even if it’s a Void Initiation Stage Inscription Master, the Inscription Master’s Spiritual Force was dispersed before it could even come near to the mysterious blood.” The old man’s words caused the spectating area to become deathly silent.
“Exactly what demon beast’s blood is this? It’s actually so peculiar!” Many people couldn’t help but sigh with emotion.
They naturally wouldn’t think that this was the blood of a human.
What a joke!
It was practically impossible for a human’s blood to be so abnormal.
“Our Prince Sheng’s Estate has studied this drop of mysterious blood for many years and have paid an extremely great price for it… However, we gained nothing in the end! So, today, our Prince Sheng’s Estate has taken it out to be the reward for the fourth level Void Prying Stage guest that kills the Earth Bear.” The old man said with a sonorous voice, “No matter who it is, so long as you kill the Earth Bear, you’ll be able to obtain this drop of mysterious blood… I presume everyone already knows very well in their heart about how extraordinary this mysterious blood is.”
“If anyone is able to unearth its secrets, perhaps that person will be able to soar into the sky with a single leap!” Needless to say, the old man’s words were extremely infectious.
For a time, many fourth level Void Prying Stage martial artists were eager to enter the arena.
But when they thought of how the Earth Bear had comprehended Half-step Advanced Earth Force, they had an extra sense of hesitation.
When faced with an Earth Bear that had comprehended Half-step Advanced Earth Force, even if it was a fourth level Void Prying Stage martial artist that had similarly comprehended Half-step Advanced Force; if the martial artist didn’t rely on the assistance of external sources of strength, the martial artist wouldn’t dare battle it.
The Earth Force was a type of force of nature.
Once one stood on the ground and executed it, one would be able to draw support from the energy of the earth and would be able to increase one’s strength by a certain amount.
“Roar!!” Right at this moment, the Earth Bear emitted an enormous roar once again.
The earth started shaking once again.
This time, ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form once again above the Earth Bear’s head.
But, it wasn’t 6,500 ancient mammoth silhouettes this time, but instead was 6,800 ancient mammoth silhouettes!
The strength of a fourth level Void Prying Stage demon beast was comparable to the strength of 6,000 ancient mammoths.
The Half-step Advanced Earth Force was comparable to the strength of 500 ancient mammoths.
As for the extra strength of 300 ancient mammoths that the Earth Bear possessed, it was instead an amplification of strength from drawing support from the energy of the earth.
The Earth Force was able to fuse into one with the earth and draw support from the energy of the earth.
As for how much energy the Earth Force was able draw support from the earth, it would depend on the level of comprehension of Earth Force.
At this moment, when they saw the Earth Bear demonstrate its might with their own two eyes, and it drew upon the energy of heaven and earth to develop 6,800 ancient mammoth silhouettes.
The fourth level Void Prying Stage martial artists that were eager to enter the arena were completely terrified.
Those that stood up had sat back down, and those that were just intending to stand up moved their butts back.
All of them broke out with slight cold sweat.
“The Earth Bear I too terrifying! Unless it’s a fourth level Void Prying Stage martial artist that has comprehended Advanced Force… Otherwise, it’s almost impossible to defeat the Earth Bear!” Many spectators sighed with emotion.
All of them felt that this round of cage battle would probably come to nothing.
“I heard long ago, when one stands on the ground and executes Earth Force, one can draw support from the energy of the earth… Today, I can be considered to have experienced it.” Chen Shao Shuai sighed with emotion.
“If it’s a space without restrictions, then so long as one soars up into the sky, one would be completely capable of moving away from the ground and causing the human martial artist or demon beast that has comprehended Earth Force to be unable to draw support from the energy of the earth… But the Caged Battle Arena is restricted by that enormous iron cage, and one completely has no way of avoiding the area of attack of the Earth Bear that stood on the ground.” Luo Zhan took a deep breath and his eyes were filled with fear.
It was precisely because he’d thought of this since long ago that he didn’t have the courage to battle the Earth Bear.
“Duan Ling Tian…” In next to no time, Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai looked at Duan Ling Tian, as they wanted to know Duan Ling Tian’s intentions.
But they quickly noticed that since an unknown time, Duan Ling Tian sat there with a dazed expression, and he looked at the old man that presided over the Caged Battle Arena with a blank gaze.
Precisely speaking, he was looking at the drop of fiery red colored mysterious blood in the old man’s hand.
“Scarlet Phoenix Blood… It’s the blood of a Scarlet Phoenix!” It was like a tempestuous storm had arisen in the heart of Duan Ling Tian who had a dazed expression.
What have I seen?
I’ve actually seen the blood of a Scarlet Phoenix here…
The Scarlet Phoenix was an extremely formidable demon beast.
In terms of natural talent, it even surpassed the Jade-eyed Heavenly Mouse slightly.
There was a rumor in Cloud Continent.
The Scarlet Phoenix was the descendants of Phoenixes.
Whereas Phoenixes were Divine Beasts.
They were existences that were on par with true Dragons, and their strengths were exceedingly formidable.
Of course, no matter if it was the Phoenix or the Dragon that was equally famous, they were both existences of legend.
At least, an existence like this hadn’t appeared in Cloud Continent.
Even if it was the so-called dragon that occasionally appeared, it was only a fellow that was half a wyrm and half a dragon, and it wasn’t a true Dragon.
Furthermore, even if it was these fellows that were half dragon and half wyrm, their strengths were extremely terrifying, and this was only because the blood of a Dragon flowed within them.
Just like the Scarlet Phoenix, the blood of the Phoenix flowed within it.
“According to the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor… He’s once obtained an ancient medicinal formula during his first lifetime, and at the side of that medicinal formula was a bottle that was refined from unknown materials.
“Within that bottle was a drop of Scarlet Phoenix Blood!” Duan Ling Tian’s mood surged.
“Whereas that medicinal formula recorded a medicinal pill that is refined by using the blood of the Scarlet Phoenix as a medicinal catalyst…
“The medicinal pill is called the Rebirth Pill!”
Resurrection had always been the special ability of the phoenix of legend.
Whereas using the blood of the Scarlet Phoenix which has the blood of the Phoenix flowing within it as the medicinal catalyst, the Rebirth Pill was instead able to be refined.
Of course, the Rebirth Pill wasn’t able to actually allow one to be resurrected.
“The place the Rebirth Martial Emperor obtained the medicinal formula for the Rebirth Pill and the Scarlet Phoenix blood all those years was a mysterious ruins… The Three Lives Rebirth Technique the Rebirth Martial Emperor cultivated came from that ruins as well!” Duan Ling Tian swiftly searched through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor and he found out about many things.
“Even if it was the Rebirth Martial Emperor who had experienced two lifetimes and was at his prime, he was still unable to discern who left that ruins behind…” Unknowingly, Duan Ling Tian had returned to his senses.
“Scarlet Phoenix blood!” Burning flames silently blazed deep within Duan Ling Tian’s gaze.
