Chapter 607: Concept Fragments
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Big Brother Ling Tian, wait a moment.” They’d only flown out for a short moment when Han Xue Nai called out to Duan Ling Tian.
Right when Duan Ling Tian was stunned by this.
“Big guy!” Xue Nai’s voice had already sounded out far away and swept through the entire Pheasant Ridge.
Although the Pheasant Ridge was large, but Han Xue Nai’s voice that contained Origin Energy still clearly spread to every corner of it.
In next to no time, an extremely enormous figure shot into the sky and appeared before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
It was precisely the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger!
“I almost forgot this big fellow.” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai sat onto the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger and let it carry them to hurry on.
With the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s speed, it wasn’t long before Duan Ling Tian had caught up to the group of 12 people before them.
At the beginning, when these 12 people saw a demon beast that was enormous like a mountain chasing after them, they thought they’d disturbed this demon beast and they were all as if facing a great enemy.
“Brother Ling Tian!” Dong Ming’s eyes were sharp and noticed Duan Ling Tian that was on the back of the demon beast, and he was instantly slightly surprised.
Duan Ling Tian light smiled and nodded to Dong Ming. “Get on… Riding this big fellow is faster than you flying yourself.”
However, at this moment, Dong Ming seemed petrified, and he stared blankly at the enormous beast before him.
“Brother… Brother Ling Tian, this demon beast… It wouldn’t be our Darkstone Empire’s Guarding Demon Beast, the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger, right?” Dong Ming fiercely gulped down a mouthful of saliva and asked with difficulty.
“It’s exactly him.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Dong Ming was greatly shocked in his heart when he heard this.
As someone from the Darkstone Empire, he naturally knew what the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger meant to the Darkstone Empire.
The person with the strongest strength in the Darkstone Empire was undoubtedly King Yong, whereas, below King Yong was this ninth level Void Initiation Stage demon beast, the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger and the few ninth level Void Initiation Stage experts of the Imperial Family.
“The Darkstone Empire’s Guarding Demon Beast?” Instantly, many people were dumbstruck.
“Even the Darkstone Empire’s Guarding Demon Beast has been abducted by them?” This thought couldn’t help but emerged in the hearts of some people.
As far as they were concerned, that yellow clothed young girl was a figure like a little devil, and any exaggerated thing she did wasn’t surprising.
Moreover, with the young girl’s strength, she was utterly unafraid of the Darkstone Empire.
Even if she abducted the Empire Guarding Demon Beast of the Darkstone Empire, the Darkstone Empire would probably not dare to say a single word.
Under Duan Ling Tian’s beckoning, Dong Ming descended onto the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger.
“Elder Hu.” Meanwhile, Dong Ming called out to the azure clothed old man as he wanted to asked the old man to ascend the extremely spacious back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger as well.
But the azure clothed old man shook his head instead and refused Dong Ming’s good intentions.
What a joke!
He’d even come into conflict with the two of them earlier.
At this time, not to mention it would be embarrassing to sit on their demon beast, even if he thickened his face and sat there, he would probably be blasted down by them.
He was able to feel the hostility the yellow clothed young girl had towards him.
A day’s time quickly passed by.
However, the jade sword’s speed didn’t have any intention of slowing down.
“Where exactly is this Sword Monarch’s Treasure?” Three days later, some people were unable to endure any longer.
Even if someone was made of iron, three days and nights of flying would more or less cause them to feel a trace of exhaustion.
Many people looked at Duan Ling Tian’s group of three that sat cross-legged on the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger with gazes filled with envy, and they wished for nothing more than to be able to ascend the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger and be carried by it for a while.
But they didn’t have the courage to do that.
Who knew if that yellow clothed young girl would freeze them into ice sculptures if they did that.
When they recalled the four people that had died at the hands of the young girl three days ago, they still felt a lingering fear in their hearts.
“Hu!” Duan Ling Tian who was on the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger woke up from his cultivation, and his gaze flickered. “My cultivation has finally come close to the bottleneck of the second level of the Void Initiation Stage… It’s time to consume the Spirit Void Fruit.” As Duan Ling Tian spoke a translucent and glittering spirit fruit had appeared in his hand.
A dense fragrance effused out.
“Spirit Void Fruit?” Han Xue Nai looked at the spirit fruit at the first possible moment, and although she was slightly surprised, she didn’t pay attention to it.
To her, a Spirit Void Fruit was completely useless.
But Han Xue Nai paying no attention to it didn’t mean that the others would pay no attention to it.
At this moment, including Dong Ming, everyone stared with a burning gaze at the Spirit Void Fruit in Duan Ling Tian’s hands.
If it wasn’t for being afraid of the young girl’s terrifying strength, they’d probably have swarmed over all together and seize the Spirit Void Fruit in Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
A Spirit Void Fruit was a spirit fruit that was specially used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists, and even if a ninth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist consumed it, it would provide an extremely great assistance.
Besides Han Xue Nai, everyone present was a Void Initiation Stage expert, and their eyes all went red with greed as they looked at the Spirit Void Fruit in Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
Presently, even Little Gold, Little Black, and Little White that were concealed under Duan Ling Tian’s and Han Xue Nai’s sleeves were slightly restless.
Under the gazes of everyone present, Duan Ling Tian stuffed the Spirit Void fruit in his hand into his mouth and swallowed it with a few mouthfuls.
A strand of warmth moved along his throat to flow into his body.
The warmth contained vast medicinal strength that he could feel clearly.
This Spirit Void Fruit was precisely the spirit fruit he’d obtained that day from the Pavilion Master, Xiang Ying, of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Milky Way City’s Treasure Gathering Pavilion. He didn’t consume it earlier because he was waiting for an opportune moment.
Although the medicinal strength of the Spirit Void Fruit couldn’t be considered to be at the top amongst the Spirit Fruits used specially by Void Initiation Stage martial artists, it was undoubtedly extremely strong to first level Void Initiation Stage martial artists.
After he broke through to the Void Initiation Stage, Duan Ling Tian had a plan, he would wait for his first level Void Initiation Stage cultivation to stabilize and move a step forward before consuming the Spirit Void Fruit, and then he would strive to break through two levels in one go in a short period of time.
Strive to directly step into the third level of the Void Initiation Stage!
If it wasn’t for this, Duan Ling Tian would have already consumed the Spirit Void Fruit at that time when he’d just broken through to the first level of the Void Initiation Stage.
As the saying goes, use the best steel on the blade, Duan Ling Tian’s was waiting for this moment.
After he consumed the consumed the Spirit Void Fruit, Duan Ling Tian closed his eyes and started to meditate and cultivate.
As for chasing after the jade sword and heading to the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, he utterly didn’t have to worry since he was riding the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger.
What he could do now was cultivate earnestly and see if he was able to smoothly break through to the third level of the Void Initiation Stage before entering the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Earth Dragon Form!
Unknowingly, Duan Ling Tian had completely immersed his mind into his cultivation.
Time silently passed by.
The jade sword that led the way in the front seemed like a tireless machine, and they flew day after day.
A month’s time had passed by in the blink of an eye.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian who sat cross-legged on the back of the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger finally moved.
Duan Ling Tian who cultivated for an entire month finally opened his eyes that were dazzling like stars, and he spat out a mouthful of foul air at the same time.
“Finally.” Duan Ling Tian’s face bloomed with a brilliant smile that was like a ray of sunlight.
Third level of the Void Initiation Stage!
He’d broken through.
As he felt the vast Origin Energy within his body, and especially when he used his internal vision to see the Nascent Soul in his Dantian that was even more illusory, Duan Ling Tian’s mood couldn’t help but surge.
The increase of strength brought great confidence to Duan Ling Tian.
After all, before this, his confidence had been torn to pieces by Han Xue Nai on more than one occasion.
But now, after he’d broken through to the third level of the Void Initiation Stage, he’d let it go.
Everyone had good fortune that belonged to themselves.
Just like Han Xue Nai, the terrifying cultivation she possessed now was precisely because of her extraordinary background.
“In the past, I still underestimated the power backing Han Xue Nai.” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze descended onto Han Xue Nai who sat cultivating nearby with her eyes closed, and he sighed in his heart. “At that time, I thought that the power Xue Nai was from would at most be able to provide various spirit fruits as assistance to her… Now, from the Ice Concept that Xue Nai possesses, the power she belongs to possibly even has the conditions to provide Concept Fragments to her!”
In Cloud Continent, it was something that was even more precious than spirit fruits.
When martial artists of Cloud Continent were at the Void Stage, they would comprehend Force and Concept… Amongst them, Force was the foundation of Concept.
When one was at the Void Initiation Stage, one would comprehend Concept.
According to the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian knew deeply that the Concept a Void Initiation Stage martial artist touched upon was only Void Initiation Concept, or popularly called Elementary Concept,
Elementary Concept was divided into nine levels.
Every advancement of a level provided an extra strength of one ancient horned dragon.
Since there was Elementary Concept, then there would naturally be Intermediate Concept.
Intermediate Concept was the popular name for Void Interpretation Concept.
If a ninth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist wanted to step into the Void Interpretation Stage, then the martial artist had to attain a breakthrough from the ninth level Elementary Concept and comprehend Intermediate Concept.
If one didn’t satisfy this condition, then one would be unable to step into the Void Interpretation Stage!
Intermediate Concept was similar to Elementary Concept and was divided into nine levels.
First level Intermediate Concept was comparable to the strength of 20 ancient horned dragons.
After that, every increase in level would allow one to experience an increase in the strength of 10 ancient horned dragons.
The ninth level Intermediate Concept was comparable to the strength of 100 ancient horned dragons.
If a ninth level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist wanted to step into the Void Transformation Stage, then it would be same as before, the martial artist would have to attain a breakthrough from the ninth level Intermediate Concept and comprehend Advanced Concept.
Advanced Concept was the popular name for Void Transformation Concept.
First level Advanced Concept was comparable to the strength of 200 ancient horned dragons.
After that, every increase in level provided an increase of the strength of 100 ancient horned dragons.
A ninth level Advanced Concept was comparable to the strength of 1,000 ancient horned dragons.
To a certain extent, the Advanced Concept had completely transcended above Elementary Concept and Intermediate Concept.
In the depths of the mind of a martial artist that had comprehended first level Advanced Concept, a Concept Fragment would be developed, and it was similar to the Inner Core of fierce beasts and demon beasts.
The Concept Fragment contained the comprehension the martial artist that had comprehended Advanced Comprehension possessed towards a certain type of Advanced Concept.
This type of martial artist was usually an existence that was at the Void Transformation Stage, and once they were killed, their opponent wouldn’t hold back in the slightest to seize their Concept Fragment.
A Concept Fragment was the crystallization of the Void Transformation Stage martial artist’s Concept, and if it were to be obtained by another martial artist that comprehended the same Concept, the other martial artist would even be able to rely on it to speed up the process of his comprehension towards that Concept.
Although it wasn’t to the extent of allowing another to soar into the sky with a single leap, the speed of cultivating that type of Concept would be tremendous!
