Chapter 583: Sword Concept
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“I never imagined that this Saber Young Master had actually cultivated an Earth Rank defensive martial skill!”
“It seems to not be an ordinary Earth Rank defensive martial skill… If it’s a low grade Earth Rank martial skill, then even if it’s cultivated to the Perfection Stage, it might not be able to resist Young Master Gao’s attack.”
“Cultivating an Earth Rank defensive martial skill with Earth Force or Earth Concept is the way of kings… Using other Force or Concept to cultivate an Earth Rank defensive martial skill is lacking in the end.”
“The Earth Rank defensive martial skill cultivated by this Saber Young Master is very likely a middle grade or high grade Earth Rank defensive martial skill.
The surrounding crowd of spectators discussed animatedly.
Even if it was the representatives of the various powers and Imperial Kingdoms, their expressions had become serious.
Although low grade Earth Rank defensive martial skills that were executed by other Forces and Concepts besides the Earth Force or Earth Concept were rare, it they wanted one, they had methods of obtaining it.
But this this level of defensive martial skill wasn’t of any use towards martial artists whose strength was approaching the Void Initiation Stage or at the Void Initiation Stage and above.
Even if they executed it, it would be like a piece of paper before an opponent of similar strength as them.
A middle grade or high grade Earth Rank defensive martial skill was different.
A middle grade Earth Rank defensive martial skill had an extremely great use towards Void Initiation Stage martial artists.
Of course, if a martial artist at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage or above used his full strength, the martial artist was practically able to disregard a middle grade Earth Rank defensive martial skill.
As for a high grade Earth Rank defensive martial skill, it had a great use until one stepped into the seventh level of the Void Interpretation Stage.
For a time, many people looked at Long Yun with gazes filled with envy, jealousy, and greed.
All this was because Long Yun had executed that Earth Rank defensive martial skill earlier.
The other eight combat rings were filled with noise and excitement as well.
The eight combat ring masters changed unceasingly, and the strength of the master became stronger and stronger, whereas, on the combat ring that Long Yun stood on, there was temporarily no one that challenged him.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Long Yun’s burning gaze stared at Duan Ling Tian, and his eyes were filled with burning battle intent.
But from the beginning until the end, Duan Ling Tian utterly had no intention of paying attention to him.
Meanwhile, one of the three remaining Bazho Imperial Kingdom young geniuses had defeated the combat ring master of another combat ring to become the new master.
“You, and you… Do you two dare battle me?” The young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom glanced at Duan Ling Tian before glancing at Su Li and asking with a deep voice.
Instantly, a wave of booing sounded out in the surroundings as expected.
“Do members of the Bazho Imperial Kingdom specialize in choosing ripe persimmons to squash?”
“Amongst the five young geniuses of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, besides that Saber Young Master who’s already on another combat ring and that Sword Young Master, only the other three people haven’t fought yet… One of them has the oldest age, and he’s probably a figure that’s ranked at the top portion of the five great young masters. As for the other two people, they ought to not be figures from the five great young masters.”
“Between these two people, the one with an older age seems to only be 27 or 28, and the younger one looks to be around 25.”
The surrounding crowd of spectators discussed animatedly.
Many people sneered at the choice of the young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom.
“Su Li, he wants to challenge you and me? Will you go first, or shall I?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Su Li and asked with a smile.
“I’ll go first.” As soon as Su Li finished speaking, he leaped up onto the combat ring and stood in confrontation with the young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom.
“You’re a figure from the five great young masters of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom as well?” The young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom seemed to want to confirm Su Li’s identity.
“No.” Su Li spoke indifferently.
Meanwhile, the young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom heaved a sigh of relief, and a bloody sheen arose in his eyes. “Then don’t hope of returning with your life this time!”
“You want to kill me?” A strand of killing intent was faintly brewing in the depths of Su Li’s eyes.
“Of course!” The young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom spoke as a matter of course.
When Duan Ling Tian heard the words spoken by the young man, he couldn’t help but glance at the young man in pity.
This fellow, a mere sixth level Void Prying Stage martial artist wanted to kill Su Li?
“That’ll depend on if you have the ability.” Su Li didn’t get angry, but instead started laughing, but the killing intent in the depths of his eyes had already been brewed to the point of appearing in his eyes.
“Hmph!” The young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom grunted coldly, and then his figure flashed like a bolt of lightning to shoot towards Su Li.
In his hand, Origin Energy skyrocketed on a grade five spirit weapon, and it carried along strands of gentle blue colored energy…
Half-step Advanced Water Force!
In the sky, an ancient horned dragon silhouette was escorted by 2,300 plus ancient mammoth silhouettes as they gushed towards Su Li.
Sixth level Void Prying Stage.
Grade five spirit weapon.
“Die!” The young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom shouted out explosively as he pounced towards Su Li, and he actually intended to kill Su Li with a single strike.
When the young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom an extremely short distance away, Su Li made a move.
Origin Energy gradually pulsated in Su Li’s hand to instantly form a three foot long blade, Origin Energy flickered on the tip of the sword, and it was extremely sharp.
Along with Su Li’s Origin Energy roiling, an ancient horned dragon silhouettes that was escorted by 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared out of thin air above him.
“Ninth…. Ninth level of the Void Prying Stage!” Instantly, someone exclaimed out in shock.
A single stone caused a thousand ripples.
Only now did the people present realize that Su Li’s current movements didn’t utilize Force or a spirit weapon.
He’d only used pure Origin Energy to draw upon the energy of heaven and earth to form an ancient horned dragon silhouette and 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes.
This was obviously the symbol of a ninth level Void Prying Stage martial artist!
“How strong!” Presently, the young geniuses of the various powers and Imperial Kingdoms, including the young geniuses that were in fierce battle on the other eight combat rings had stopped fighting, and they stared blankly at the ‘phenomenon’ in the sky above Su Li.
“Ninth level of the Void Prying Stage! This Su Li…” Chi Ming and Prince Sheng couldn’t help but be moved.
The representative of Bazho Imperial Kingdom, Wei Kun’s, hand clenched slightly and broke the armrest of the chair, yet he wasn’t aware of it.
“He’s a ninth level Void Prying Stage martial artist, admit defeat quickly!” At the same time, Wei Kun hurriedly sent a voice transmission to pierce into the ears of the young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom that pounced towards Su Li.
But would he be in time?
On the combat ring, after Su Li condensed his Origin Energy into a three foot long blade, he swiftly stabbed towards the combat ring beneath him.
Right at this instant, strands of aura that was sharp to the extreme stretched out abruptly on the three foot long blade in Su Li’s hand…
At this instant, another ancient horned dragon appeared in the sky.
At the same time, the three foot long blade in Su Li’s hand that was condensed from Origin Energy descended onto the combat ring, and he was instead brought flying by the repulsive force to easily dodge the attack from the Bazho Imperial Kingdom’s young man that approached menacingly.
In the next moment, Su Li had dodged behind the young man from Bazho Imperial Kingdom.
“I admit…” Meanwhile, the young man received Wei Kun’s voice transmission and opened his mouth, intending to admit defeat.
But he didn’t have the chance to say the word ‘defeat.’
A three foot long blade that was like a stroke of the gods pierced through from his back, and along with the three foot long blade that was condensed from Origin Energy dispersing.
Fresh blood shot out violently from the chest and back of the young man, and his entire body fell into a pool of blood.
After twitching for a few times, he was completely devoid of any signs of life.
But besides the few people from the Bazho Imperial Kingdom, no one had the time to pay attention to his life or death now.
The gazes of most people had simultaneously descended onto the combat ring, and descended onto the two ancient horned dragon silhouettes and 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes in the sky above the red clothed young man that were accumulating force while waiting to be deployed.
“First… First level Sword Concept!”
“A ninth level Void Prying Stage martial that isn’t using a spirit weapon obtained an extra strength of one ancient horned dragon… This red clothed young man from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom has comprehended first level Sword Concept!”
“This red clothed young man is already half way into the Void Initiation Stage… He’s completely capable of breaking through to the Void Initiation Stage before the Martial Competition of the Dynasty starts!”
“He’ll surely occupy one of the 10 positions today.”
The surrounding crowd of spectators discussed animatedly.
Su Li’s strength had shocked them.
“Not yet thirty yet at the ninth level of the Void Prying Stage and has comprehended first level Sword Concept…” King Yong’s sonorous voice slowly sounded out.
“You, what’s your name?” King Yong’s gaze descended onto the red clothed young man and asked.
Instantly, many of the young geniuses’ present looked at Su Li with envy.
After all, not everyone was able to make King Yong take the initiative to ask for their name.
“Su Li.” On the combat ring, Su Li nodded to King Yong and spoke neither humbly nor arrogantly.
“Su Li, I’ve remembered you.” King Yong lightly smiled as he nodded, and he was extremely amiable to Su Li.
“Alas… Revered Elder Wei, I’m truly sorry. These little fellows are too impetuous and don’t know how to hold back.” Chi Ming looked at Wei Kun and shook his head a she sighed, and then he said via voice transmission, “Why not you take the remaining two young geniuses of your Bazho Imperial Kingdom and leave? So as to avoid that in the end, you’d have come with seven yet go home as two.”
“Chi Ming!” Wei Kun’s body trembled, he was angered to the point his face flushed red, his eyeballs seemed about to split, and he almost spat out a mouthful of blood.
The remaining two young geniuses from Bazho Imperial Kingdom looked at each other and could see the terror in each other’s eyes.
Meanwhile, no one ascended the combat ring Su Li was on to battle him.
The two great young geniuses of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom had both occupied a combat ring each.
“The Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom can be said to be in the limelight this time!”
“Yeah, two monsters have actually come from such a small Imperial Kingdom…”
“If nothing unexpected happens, both of these two people ought to be able to obtain one of the ten positions to head to the Darkhan Dynasty.”
Many people looked favorably upon Su Li and Long Yun.
Time silently passed by.
Luo Zhan and Chen Shao Shuai had successively ascended to the other combat rings.
But unfortunately, with their strengths, they weren’t able to become a combat ringmaster that no one challenged.
“Duan Ling Tian, the two of us probably have no fate with those 10 positions… Everything will depend on you, Su Li, and Long Yun.” Luo Zhan sighed.
“No wonder they say that experts are numerous like the clouds in the Empire… I originally thought that after I broke through to the sixth level of the Void Prying Stage, my strength could already be considered to be not bad. But now, if one doesn’t possess a cultivation at the seventh level of the Void Prying Stage or above, it’s extremely difficult to become one of the final combat ring masters.” Chen Shao Shuai deeply agreed.
“Both of you shouldn’t feel dejected… Besides Su Li and Long Yun, all these martial artists at the seventh level of the Void Prying Stage or above are older than both of you. When both of you are of the same age as them, you two might not be inferior to them.” Duan Ling Tian consoled.
