Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“He killed the Patriarch, the Grand Elder, and the others?” The Zhu Clan disciples were stunned when they saw Duan Ling Tian, and they only recovered from their shock when Duan Ling Tian’s figure flashed and vanished before their eyes.
“Such a young man actually possesses the strength to kill the Patriarch and the others… Who exactly is he?”
“He’s surely a member of those great powers!”
“I wonder how the Patriarch and the others offended him.”
“Fortunately, he didn’t have the intention to make a move against our Zhu Clan… Otherwise, our Zhu Clan would surely be annihilated!”
The Zhu Clan disciples discussed animatedly, and many of them even felt a slight lingering fear in their hearts.
They felt fortunate that they’d escaped this calamity.
Duan Ling Tian left the Zhu Clan and left Abundance City.
To him, the incident that occurred in Abundance City was only a small matter that wasn’t worth mentioning.
It wasn’t long before he tossed it to the back of his head.
Milky Way City was the most flourishing trade city in the Darkhan Dynasty, and it was also the final destination of Duan Ling Tian when he came to the Darkhan Dynasty.
“My time is limited, and I’m unable to head over to the Darkhan Dynasty’s Capital… If I’m unable to find the Ageless Root in the Darkhan Dynasty’s Milky Way City and the Darkstone Empire’s Flourishing Summer City, then I can only wait for when I advance in the Darkstone Empire and head over to the Darkhan Dynasty’s Capital to continue searching.” Duan Ling Tian headed all the way to Milky Way city according to the map in his possession.
Along the way, he’d found a forest with dense amounts of demon beasts to tame a seventh level Void Prying Stage flying beast with his soul skill to carry him.
Although the speed of this demon beast was slower to the little gold mouse, it wasn’t much inferior.
Duan Ling Tian calmed his heart and cultivated while sitting cross-legged on the back of the demon beast.
In his cultivating, Duan Ling Tian forgot the time, and he only awoke from his cultivating when the demon beast woke him up.
“I’m still a small distance away from the sixth level of the Void Prying Stage.”
Presently, another two months had passed, Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation had obtained swift improvement and was approaching the sixth level of the Void Prying Stage already.
“That’s… Milky Way City?” Duan Ling Tian sat on the back of the demon beast and was brought plunging downwards, and a city appeared in his eyes.
This city was absolutely the largest city that Duan Ling Tian had seen in this world.
In terms of the area it occupied, even the Darkstone Empire’s Imperial City and Flourishing Summer City combined together wasn’t even half of the size of this city.
After he came near to the city, Duan Ling Tian was able to see numerous swift figures either flashing past from high above in the air or dashing past on the ground, and they ceaselessly gushed into the Milky Way City before him.
There were both human martial artists and demon beasts amongst these figures.
The latter were all ridden by human martial artists.
Duan Ling Tian slowly stood up, and he stood on the demon beast while allowing it to bring him into the city.
In the Milky Way City, people that were conspicuous like Duan Ling Tian were too innumerable to be counted.
So Duan Ling Tian’s arrival didn’t draw the attention of others.
“I should first look for the Treasure Gathering Pavilion to issue a task.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Subsequently, he descended down from the sky and stopped a middle aged man that passed by, and then he asked politely. “Big Brother, may I ask…”
“Don’t bother me, I have an important matter to attend to!” The middle aged man spoke impatiently.
“Big Brother, I want to ask where the Treasure Gathering Pavilion.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled, and a gold bill with a 10,000 denomination appeared out of thin air in his hand.
“Walk ahead, then turn right when you arrive at the end, and the Treasure Gathering Pavilion is there.” A tremendous change occurred in the middle aged man’s attitude after he received the gold bill, and then he left.
“He’s truly realistic.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and soared up into the sky once again to stand onto the back of the demon beast before urging it to head forward.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian arrived at the end of the road.
After he turned right, Duan Ling Tian saw the large plaque with gold words on the faraway standalone building…
Treasure Gathering Pavilion!
Duan Ling Tian had only just arrived at the door to the Treasure Gathering Pavilion when an attendant moved over to greet him.
“Guest, please come inside.” One of the attendants respectfully greeted Duan Ling Tian into the pavilion.
On the way, the attendant asked Duan Ling Tian about his reason for arrival.
When he found out Duan Ling Tian came here to offer a reward for a task, he didn’t dare dally and brought Duan Ling Tian to the third floor.
“Guest, may I know what you want to offer a reward for? And what will you use as a reward?” The old man behind the counter looked at Duan Ling Tian with an expressionless face.
“Ageless Root!” After Duan Ling Tian described the characteristics of the Ageless Root like he did in the Flourishing Summer City, he specially drew a picture of the Ageless Root.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian withdrew a grade four spirit sword and passed it to the old man.
The old man seemed rather suspicious as he held the grade four spirit sword in his hand.
Along with Origin Energy gushing out from the old man’s hand, beside the two ancient dragon silhouettes in the sky above him, another one ancient horned dragon and 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared.
“First level of the Void Initiation Stage!” Duan Ling Tian was slightly surprised.
When he entered, he didn’t use his Spiritual Force to detect the old man’s cultivation.
Now, it had shocked him when he saw the old man reveal a cultivation at the first level of the Void Initiation Stage.
As expected of the Treasure Gathering Pavilion in the most flourishing city of Darkhan Dynasty.
An old man that was merely in-charge of registering behind the counter was an existence at the Void Initiation Stage.
Duan Ling Tian was shocked, yet the old man was even more shocked than him.
“An amplification of 60%?” The old man’s stiff face revealed a shocked expression, and bright lights flickered in his muddy eyes.
The old man looked over and Duan Ling Tian lightly nodded. “Senior, please register it for me.”
The old man nodded and spoke in a slight dull manner. “A grade four spirit weapon can waive the administration fee… Three months later, no matter if the thing you require is found, you can rely on this jade ornament half to exchange for your spirit weapon.” As he finished speaking, the old man passed a half of a jade ornament to Duan Ling Tian.
The rules here was exactly the same to the Treasure Gathering Pavilion in the Darkstone Empire’s Flourishing Summer City.
“A grade four spirit sword that provides an amplification of 60%?” The attendant that brought Duan Ling Tian in was completely stunned on the spot, and he assumed a petrified state.
According to his knowledge, there seemed to not be a single grade four Weapons Craftsman in the Darkhan Dynasty that was able to refine a grade four spirit sword with a 60% amplification.
Because of this, the value of this grade four spirit sword could be easily imagined.
“Thank you, Senior.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled and nodded to the old man, and then he urged the demon beast and left.
“A grade four spirit weapon that provides a 60% amplification… Could it be that he’s related to that person? Wait! Even that person exhausted a lifetime of effort and was only able to refine two grade four spirit weapons with a 59% amplification, yet none of them were grade four spirit weapons with a 60% amplification.” The thought that had just emerged in the old man’s heart was shattered by himself.
In his eyes, the violet figure that moved into the distance was that much more mysterious.
“You, quickly take this picture to the main hall on the first floor and stick it on the bulletin board…. Then, announce that no matter who it is, so long as they’re able to produce the medicinal material on the picture, they’ll be able to obtain a grade four spirit sword that provides a 60% amplification!” The old man looked at the attendant and spoke with a serious expression.
“Yes.” The attendant left after replying.
The old man left the counter as well, and he headed towards the stairs that lead to the higher floors.
After a short moment, he arrived before a room on the fifth floor.
“Pavilion Master!” The old man stood outside as he bowed.
The Treasure Gathering Pavilion was a business under a formidable power of the Darkhan Dynasty.
It was distributed all over the Darkhan Dynasty.
Even if it was the various Empires under the Darkhan Dynasty, all of them had branches of the Treasure Gathering Pavilion.
Every branch pavilion had a Pavilion Master, and Milky Way City was no exception.
Not only that, because Milky Way City was the most flourishing trade city in the Darkhan Dynasty, the Pavilion Master of the Milky Way City branch was even an expert with shocking strength, and no one knew how strong this Pavilion Master was.
However, although there the Milky Way City’s Treasure Gathering Pavilion branch had numerous treasures, there was rarely anyone that dared look for trouble with it, and the deterrent force of the Pavilion Master could be seen from this.
“Enter.” In the room, a sonorous voice sounded out.
Along with the old man entering, a middle aged man appeared within the old man’s field of vision, and he had his back towards the old man.
“Do you need something?” The middle aged man turned around, his gaze like lightning, and he stared at the old man as he asked.
“Pavilion Master, look at this.” Although just from appearance, the old man was enough to be the middle aged man’s father, when he faced the middle aged man, he was instead respectful and reverent, and didn’t dare be disrespectful in the slightest.
As he spoke, a sword appeared in his hand, a spirit sword.
“This is?” The middle aged man raised his hand, and he didn’t seem to make any further movement, yet the spirit sword in the old man’s hand instantly flew out to firmly descend in his hand.
It was just like it was dragged over by a shapeless force.
If Duan Ling Tian was here and saw this scene, he would surely be extremely shocked.
Because, what the middle aged man used now was an ability of taking something from a distance…
Taking something from a distance seemed to be simple, yet it was actually extremely difficult.
If it wasn’t a martial artist with a formidable strength, it was utterly impossible to achieve this.
But when faced with the middle aged man taking the spirit sword from his hand from a distance, the old man seemed to not be shocked in the slightest, and it was as if he was accustomed to it.
The middle aged man’s gaze descended onto the spirit sword on his hand.
After a short while, his eyes abruptly squinted. “What a profound weapons refinement technique… This grade four spirit sword is at least able to amplify strength by 59%! Could it be that it’s a masterpiece of that old fellow?” As he finished speaking, the middle aged man muttered.
The old man who stood respectfully at the side wasn’t surprised that the middle aged man was able to see how extraordinary the spirit sword was by just looking at it.
Because, he knew that the Pavilion Master was a grade four Weapons Craftsman! And he was one of the only five grade four Weapons Craftsmen that were known of in the Darkhan Dynasty.
“Wait!” In next to no time, the middle aged man shook his head and muttered. “I’ve seen both of the top grade, grade four spirit weapons, that that old fellow refined, and there wasn’t a spirit sword amongst them… Could it be that this is his recent work?” As he finished muttering, the middle aged man looked at the old man and asked with a low voice. “Who placed this sword in our Treasure Gathering Pavilion?”
“It was a young man.” The old man said respectfully. “This is the reward for the task he issued… So long as someone is able to find the thing he requires, he’ll give this grade four spirit sword to that person!”
