Chapter 611: Sword Concept Fragments
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
When they heard Han Xue Nai’s words and noticed the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s movements, the corners of the mouths of everyone that hadn’t stepped into the Sword Monarch’s Treasure twitched.
Only now did they realize that the reason he Three-Eyed Flame Tiger was so afraid of the young girl turned out to be because he’d once been frozen into a popsicle by the young girl.
“As expected of a Void Interpretation Stage expert, she’s easily able to use her Ice Concept to freeze a formidable ninth level Void Initiation Stage demon beast into a popsicle!” Many people sighed to themselves.
Subsequently, everyone followed them to pass through the semi-translucent barrier on the door and enter the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, whereas, Dong Ming did as he’d said and chose to be the last to enter.
Behind the semi-translucent barrier, Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai felt their figures falling ceaselessly.
After falling for the time of over ten breaths, the dusky mist and clouds before their eyes had vanished.
A cavern that was boundlessly vast had appeared before their eyes.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Right at this moment, waves of enormous bangs sounded out from ahead, and it clearly entered into the ears of Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai.
When the two of them flew forward, they quickly saw the figure of the azure clothed old man, Elder Hu.
Presently, Elder Hu was standing together with over 10 semi-translucent human shaped silhouettes.
These human shape silhouettes all possessed extraordinary strength.
Of course, none of them were as strong as Elder Hu.
But every time these human shaped silhouettes were blasted to dispersion by Elder Hu, they would condense themselves, proving themselves to be difficult to kill like cockroaches.
“Origin Shadowpuppets!” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted when he saw the human shaped silhouettes that were unafraid of death as they fought Elder Hu.
“Looks like the Martial Monarch that left behind this Sword Monarch’s Treasure is an Inscription Master… The Origin Shadowpuppet is something that only a Martial Monarch Stage Inscription Master is able to condense via an Inscription Formation.” Duan Ling Tian gasped.
An Inscription Formation was extremely profound, whereas, to a certain extent, a Martial Monarch Stage Inscription Master was able to set up some Inscription Formations that exceeded the imagination of ordinary people.
Amongst them was this Origin Shadow Inscription Formation.
The strength of an Origin Shadowpuppet depended on the level of the Inscription Formation.
An Origin Shadow Inscription Formation set up by a Martial Monarch Stage Inscription Master was completely capable of condensing Origin Shadowpuppets with cultivations at the Void Prying Stage and above.
Even stronger Origin Shadowpuppets were even at the Void Initiation Stage and Void Interpretation Stage.
As for a Void Transformation Stage Origin Shadowpuppet, it wasn’t something a Martial Monarch Stage Inscription master was able to condense via Inscription Formation.
“If it was the Rebirth Martial Emperor, he would completely be able to condense Void Transformation Stage Origin Shadowpuppets via the Origin Shadow Inscription Formation… But an Origin Shadowpuppet could at most attain the ninth level of the Void Transformation Stage!
“Moreover, the biggest weakness of an Origin Shadowpuppet was that it didn’t possess Force or Concept to rely on. So even if it was a Void Transformation Stage Origin Shadowpuppet, it didn’t develop a Concept Fragment.” The records related to the Origin Shadowpuppet in the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor flashed in Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
“The cultivations of these ten plus Origin Shadowpuppets are only at the fourth level of the Void Initiation Stage, and they who don’t have Concept to rely on are at most able to exert the strength of six ancient horned dragons…
“This old fellow has really nothing better to, he’s actually wasting time with Origin Shadowpuppets! So long as the Origin Stones in the Origin Shadow Inscription Formation at the area he’s at hasn’t been completely exhausted, it would be impossible for the Origin Shadowpuppets to vanish.” Duan Ling Tian was slightly speechless toward Elder Hu ceaselessly annihilating the Origin Shadowpuppets over there.
“It would be great if I’m able to obtain some Origin Stones from this Sword Monarch’s Treasure.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart and slightly looked forward to it.
Origin Stones were the things used commonly in the Foreign Lands to assist in cultivating.
In the Foreign Lands, gold and silver didn’t have the slightest value.
The currency circulated in the Foreign Lands weren’t gold and silver any longer, but was instead Origin Stones.
Martial artists absorbing an Origin Stone to cultivate was much more efficient than purely absorbing the spirit energy of heaven and earth to cultivate.
Some martial artists with high natural talent were able to rely on Origin Stones and advance by leaps and bounds.
“Unfortunately, because of the Inscriptions disturbing its structure, Origin Stones that are used for circulating an Inscription Formation aren’t suitable for cultivating… Otherwise, I could consider unearthing the Origin Stones used in the Inscription Formation here.” Duan Ling Tian sighed to himself and felt a slight sense of loss.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, we don’t have to pay attention so these silhouettes and can directly head in… These silhouettes are only Origin Shadowpuppets, and they pose no threat to us.” Han Xue Nai’s void transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears in a timely manner. “If any Origin Shadowpuppets chase after us, then I’ll directly wipe them out… So long as we leave the area covered by the Origin Shadow Inscription Formation that condenses these Origin Shadowpuppets, the Origin Shadowpuppets won’t attack us any longer.”
Obviously, Han Xue Nai knew of the Origin Shadowpuppets and even knew about the Origin Shadow Inscription Formation.
Of course, she didn’t know the Duan Ling Tian understood this type of Inscription Formation even more than her.
But Duan Ling Tian didn’t reveal it, and he only agreed. “Alright.”
Their figures flashed out, and they seemed to have transformed into two bolts of lightning as they flashed out directly.
After a short moment, they caught up to Elder Hu.
When Elder Hu saw Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai who’d caught up, his face sank as slight terror suffused his eyes.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, I don’t want to see this old goat again!” Han Xue Nai spoke to Duan Ling Tian as her fierce gaze scanned Elder Hu.
“Xue Nai, there’s no need to pay attention to him now… It wouldn’t be too late to kill him after we finish searching the Sword Monarch’s Treasure. At that time, no matter what he obtained in the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, it would all belong to us.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and denied Han Xue Nai’s intentions.
Han Xue Nai pondered for a moment before agreeing. “Then I’ll let him live for a few more days.”
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
When Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai passed the area that Elder Hu was at, over 20 Origin Shadowpuppets condensed in the air and flew directly towards them.
Duan Ling Tian’s group of two who’d been prepared since long ago didn’t panic and easily exterminated these Origin Shadowpuppets.
When the Origin Shadowpuppets condensed themselves once more, they’d already flashed all the way in.
After annihilating two waves of Origin Shadowpuppets, there were finally no more Origin Shadowpuppets chasing them.
“Alright, we’ve already left the Origin Shadow Inscription Formation.” Meanwhile, Han Xue Nai spoke to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian nodded. “Let’s continue forward.”
All along the way, although those Origin Shadowpuppets that attacked Duan Ling Tian were existences at the fourth level of the Void Initiation Stage, they didn’t possess Concept to rely on.
In terms of strength, they were far inferior to Duan Ling Tian.
Even though Duan Ling Tian was only a third level Void Initiation Stage martial artist, the strength of the Concept he’s comprehended and the amplification of his spirit weapon allowed him to easily wipe out Origin Shadowpuppets of this level.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai continued forward.
In the end, they experienced a few more areas that were enveloped by similar Origin Shadow Inscription Formations.
The deeper they went, the stronger the Origin Shadowpuppets were.
Gradually, it was slightly strenuous for Duan Ling Tian to deal with.
But with Han Xue Nai present, she easily blasted all the Origin Shadowpuppets to dispersal.
In the end, the two of them arrived at the end of the spacious cavern.
“That’s…” Duan Ling Tian’s sharp gaze noticed with a glance that a box was placed on the stone platform in the distance.
The box was covered in dust.
“There’s a stairway behind it.” Han Xue Nai’s voice sounded out in a timely manner, and it clearly entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Only now did Duan Ling Tian notice that behind the stone platform that the box was placed on was a stairway that led down…
That place seemed to lead towards another ‘space.’
“Let’s first see what’s in the box.” Han Xue Nai speed was extremely swift, and she directly arrived before the box before raising her hand to sweep of the dust atop the box and opening it.
Within the box was a jade green jade void transmission jade slip and a sword shaped fragment silently laying there.
“It’s a voice transmission jade slip.” Duan Ling Tian recognized the jade slip, and then he stretched out his hand before fusing his Origin Energy into it.
On the other hand, Han Xue Nai’s gaze had instead descended onto the sword shaped fragment, and her gaze lit up. “Sword Concept fragment? That Martial Monarch is generous indeed.”
A Concept Fragment was something only a martial artist at the Void Transformation Stage and above was able to develop, and it contained Advanced Concept within it.
Once these Concept Fragments that contained Advanced Concept were obtained by someone that had comprehended a similar concept, it would allow the person to rely on the fragment to swiftly advance the persons concept.
This Concept Fragment now was a Sword Concept Fragment.
If it was obtained by a martial artist that had comprehended Sword Concept, then that martial artist would be able to rely on hits to comprehend Sword Concept and advance by leaps and bounds.
Even if it was a martial artist with low comprehension ability, the martial artists advancement in the Sword Concept would far exceed those people with extraordinary comprehension ability.
If it was obtained by a martial artist with high comprehension ability, then that martial artists advancement in the Sword Concept would be even more terrifying.
“Unfortunately, I, Big Brother Ling Tian, Little Black, Little White, and Little Gold have no use of it.” Han Xue Nai shook her head.
Meanwhile, after Duan Ling Tian’s Origin Energy fused into the voice transmission jade slip, a deep voice sounded out. “No matter who you are, since you’ve obtained this voice transmission jade slip, then you’ve passed the first stage of the test in the Inheritance Tomb I left behind… The rewards for the first stage is a third level Advanced Sword Concept Fragment!” The voice vanished at this point.
“Sword Concept Fragment?” Duan Ling Tian came back to his senses and looked at the sword shaped fragment Han Xue Nai held in her hand.
The sword shaped fragment looked to be no different than an ordinary glass fragment…
But when Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force touched it, he was instead able to sense an extremely fierce aura sweep out, and it instantly blasted Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force to dispersal.
Not only that, instantly, Duan Ling Tian felt his vital energy and blood roil, before blood surged out to his throat, and it was difficult to restrain.
In the end, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t refrain from spitting out a mouthful of blood.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, what’s wrong?” Han Xue Nai noticed the events that occurred on Duan Ling Tian, and she couldn’t help but have a grim expression as she spoke in panic.
