Chapter 586: Invincible Under The Void Initiation Stage
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“I heard that one month ago, Zhong Nan relied on the grade five spirit rod in his hand to smash a ninth level Void Prying Stage martial artist that had comprehended Advanced Force to death with a single strike!”
“Yeah, Zhong Nan’s martial skill, Thousand-Ton Rod, is too overbearing!”
“Supposedly, that Thousand-Ton Rod is a high grade Earth Rank offensive martial skill… Zhong Nan relied on this Thousand-Ton Rod to comprehend all the way through of Earth Force to even comprehend Earth Concept now.”
When they saw the spirit rod that had appeared in Zhong Nan’s hand, the surroundings went into an uproar once again.
Duan Ling Tian heard the surrounding discussions, and he deeply realized how extraordinary Zhong Nan was.
“My Spiritual Force is currently at the ninth level of the Void Prying Stage, whereas, even though this Zhong Nan is a ninth level Void Prying Stage martial artist, he has comprehended first level Earth Concept. I wonder if the illusory space my soul skill, Thousand Illusions, creates is able to seal him up.” Thoughts spun in Duan Ling Tian’s mind, and he thought about many things.
Duan Ling Tian had already made a decision in his heart.
If the soul skill, Thousand Illusion was useless to this person, then he’d directly admit defeat…
“Watch out.” Needless to say, Zhong Nan was very aboveboard person, and he took the initiative to warn Duan Ling Tian before attacking.
Subsequently, Zhong Nan raised his foot to stomp on the ground, causing the combat ring to quake as if an earthquake occurred.
Instantly, along with the Origin Energy on Zhong Nan’s body raging, an ancient horned dragon silhouette that was surrounded by 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes like a bright moon surrounded by twinkling stars had appeared in the sky.
Along with an earthen yellow energy appearing on Zhong Nan’s Origin Energy, another ancient horned dragon silhouette appeared out of thin air.
First level Earth Concept!
“He still wants to rely on the energy of the earth?” Duan Ling Tian’s expression couldn’t help but go slightly serious when he saw Zhong Nan’s entire body gradually form a peculiar connection with the earth through his first level Earth Concept at this moment.
Immediately, another 5,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared in the sky above Zhong Nan.
This was energy of the earth that Zhong Nan had drawn support from by using his first level Earth Concept!
This wasn’t the end.
Along with the Origin Energy on Zhong Nan’s body pouring into the grade five spirit rod in his hand.
Another 5,700 ancient mammoth silhouettes gradually condensed into form above him…
In the end, when Zhong Nan exerted his full strength to draw upon the energy of heaven and earth, the movement caused by this was fixed at three ancient horned dragon silhouettes and 2,700 ancient mammoth silhouettes.
“If the battle wasn’t conducted far from the ground, then even Su Li would probably be far from a match for Zhong Nan.” Duan Ling Tian’s expression was extremely serious.
Moreover, this Zhong Nan had comprehended Earth Concept, so it may be assumed that he’d cultivated an Earth Rank defensive martial skill as well.
Zhong Nan stepped out, causing the ground of the combat ring to crack open like a spider web that spread out towards the surroundings…
At this moment, Zhong Nan seemed to have transformed into a god of the earth and controlled boundless divine energy of the earth!
“Duan Ling Tian is probably going to lose.”
“It can only be said that he’s unfortunate for encountering Zhong Nan… Zhong Nan’s strength can be considered to be invincible under the Void Initiation Stage in our Darkstone Empire!”
“If it isn’t an existence at the Void Initiation Stage or above, then it’s practically impossible to defeat Zhong Nan.”
Most of the surrounding spectators didn’t look favorably upon Duan Ling Tian.
Only the few people from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom looked with anticipation at the development of the scene before them.
Of course, not everyone was anticipating it.
The Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Prince Sheng looked at Duan Ling Tian with a gaze filled with coldness, and he wished for nothing more than to kill Duan Ling Tian and celebrate after it.
“I hope Duan Ling Tian is killed by this Zhong Nan… Otherwise, with the advancement of his cultivation, then not to mention me, even the Azure Forest Tri-Sect might not be able to do anything to him in the future!” Extreme coldness arose in Prince Sheng’s heart.
In the combat ring.
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and a dim light gradually flashed into existence deep within his eyes, and it seemed to have transformed into two balls of evil flames.
“Victory or defeat lays on this move!” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart, and as Zhong Nan charged towards him with a speed that grew swifter and swifter.
Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force pierced into his soul brand, and he’d successfully execute the soul skill that belonged solely to him.
An illusory space that he’d just constructed enveloped Zhong Nan within it…
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian was slightly perturbed as he was deeply afraid that the illusory space would be struck to dispersal by Zhong Nan’s first level Earth Concept.
Along with the passage of time, although the illusory space shook slightly, yet it remained completely whole, and it caused Duan Ling Tian to be unable to refrain from heaving a sigh of relief.
“Looks like the illusory space constructed by my current Spiritual Force isn’t afraid of first level Concept! But if it’s second level Concept, then the illusory space with this level of strength would probably be struck to dispersal.” Duan Ling Tian discerned this from the reaction of the illusory space.
Since a first level Concept was unable to strike the illusory space constructed by his Thousand Illusions to dispersal, then he was currently the controller of this small world that Zhong Nan was within.
He could control the life and death of Zhong Nan!
Under the gazes of everyone present, Zhong Nan made a move.
But when they saw Zhong Nan still heavily smash down his rod onto the air after Duan Ling Tian had dodged to the side, they were completely dumbstruck.
“Could it be that Zhong Nan has lost his mind as well?”
Right when the crowd of people were astonished and bewildered, Zhong Nan swung up his rod and smashed it out once more, and he once again smashed it onto the air on the other side.
This caused the surrounding people to be speechless.
“King Yong, this Duan Ling Tian wouldn’t have used an Inscription, right?” The old man that sat by King Yong’s side couldn’t refrain from asking.
“He didn’t use an Inscription.” King Yong shook his head, and his eyes were filled with wonder as well.
He’d gone through an entire lifetime, yet it was still the first time he’d seen such a strange scene. “This feeling… It’s like as if Zhong Nan has fallen into an illusion formation constructed from an inscription formation.”
“How exactly did Duan Ling Tian achieve this?” In the eyes of King Yong at this moment, the violet clothed young man on the combat ring was mysterious to the point he couldn’t help but be frightened by it.
In the combat ring, Zhong Nan smashed his rod out once more.
This time, he was already standing on the border of the combat ring, yet he seemed to not notice it in the slightest.
“It ought to end already.” Duan Ling Tian shrugged before slowly walked towards Zhong Nan and standing behind him.
Under the gazes of everyone present, Duan Ling Tian’s hand pressed onto Zhong Nan’s back and casually pushed, pushing Zhong Nan off the combat ring.
Zhong Nan had lost.
“Can anyone tell me what’s going on?”
“This is too peculiar, right? Duan Ling Tian and Zhong Nan aren’t acting right?”
“It’s surely not an act! Otherwise, how could such a strange thing happen?”
“I think that this isn’t a coincidence… Don’t forget that those young geniuses from Bazho Imperial Kingdom earlier had an almost similar appearance as Zhong Nan now.”
“Yeah, if it’s an act… Would those two people form Bazho Imperial Kingdom be willing to be killed by Duan Ling Tian?”
The surrounding crowd of spectators discussed animatedly, and they were all shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s ability.
“Duan Ling Tian…” Unknowingly, a wisp of a bitter smile had appeared on Su Li’s face.
He knew that even if Duan Ling Tian were to go against him now, he would lose without a doubt.
Zhong Nan’s strength wasn’t inferior to him, and it was even to the extent that if they were to battle on the ground, Zhong Nan would be able to easily defeat him by relying on the energy of the earth.
Yet now, Duan Ling Tian had defeated Zhong Nan on the ground.
Although it wasn’t a true victory by strength, Zhong Nan had indeed lost.
In a battle between martial artists, the process wasn’t important, as the most important was the outcome.
“I originally thought that I would be able to throw Duan Ling Tian far behind me this time… But unexpectedly, he’d already chased up.” Su Li sighed in his heart.
“How can this be possible?!” On another combat ring, Long Yun had an expression of disbelief as he looked at the scene before him.
He wasn’t willing to believe that all this was true.
He knew that he was far from being a match for that Zhong Nan, yet Duan Ling Tian had defeated Zhong Nan.
In this instant, Long Yun felt a wave of powerlessness in his heart. “Even if Su Li goes against this Zhong Nan, he would probably have no confidence in obtaining victory… But Duan Ling Tian has instead defeated Zhong Nan!”
Long Yun realized that he would probably have to defeat Su Li first before being able to defeat Duan Ling Tian.
Unknowingly, Duan Ling Tian had even thrown Su Li far behind himself.
“Duan Ling Tian…” On the high platform, the astonishment on Chi Ming’s face gradually dispersed, and replacing it was a dense smiling expression, whereas, Prince Sheng at the side had an extremely unsightly expression.
“Duan Ling Tian is actually so terrifying now! I’m afraid no one under the Void Initiation Stage is able to be a match for him.” A raging storm arose in Prince Sheng’s heart.
Duan Ling Tian was invincible under the Void Initiation Stage.
“Prince Sheng!” Right at this moment, a voice transmission sounded out by Prince Sheng’s ears.
Prince Sheng looked towards Chi Ming with a puzzled expression.
He was able to discern that the owner of the void transmission was Chi Ming.
“I know that the matter in the Caged Battle Arena that day and the humiliation the Little Prince suffered caused you to hate Duan Ling Tian to the bones… But I still hope that you and Duan Ling Tian can let bygones be bygones.” Chi Ming continued via voice transmission. “You’ve seen Duan Ling Tian’s current achievements as well… He’s surely going to the Darkhan Dynasty! It’s even to the extent that his future and prospects are limitless.”
“In the future, it’s probably impossible for you to find an opportunity to get rid of him… Since it’s like this, then why not bury the hatchet with him!? I’m willing to act as the person between the two of you, how about it? I believe that Duan Ling Tian would still be willing to give me face.” Chi Ming’s words seemed like he’d give much thought about it.
Prince Sheng’s body shook.
Bury the hatchet?
Isn’t this asking him to take the initiative to give in?
If it’s like this, then how would he keep his dignity?
But when he thought about it carefully, Chi Ming’s words were indeed spoken reasonably.
“I’ll consider it.” Prince Sheng took a deep breath and replied via voice transmission.
Chi Ming nodded and wasn’t surprised by this.
If Prince Sheng agreed readily, he would perhaps doubt Prince Sheng’s sincerity.
As a Revered Elder of the Imperial Family, he was extremely familiar of Prince Sheng’s character.
“Why have so many monsters appeared in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom…?” The two representatives of the Bazho Imperial Kingdom had ashen expressions.
Especially Wei Kun, his eyes had unknowingly become tainted with a wisp of crimson red.
If it was possible, he wished for nothing more than to charge down the high platform and slaughter all the five great young geniuses of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom to vent the hatred in his heart.
But his reason told him that he couldn’t do this.
If he were to dare make a move, then he would perhaps even be unable to touch the corners of the clothes of the people from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom before he’d be killed by King Yong.
