Chapter 613: Ten Concept Fragments
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
After a short moment, the whirlwind seemed to have lost its objective, and it completely disregarded Duan Ling Tian and directly passed through Duan Ling Tian, whereas, Duan Ling Tian floated in the air with the surroundings of his body suffused with strands of azure colored energy and another two ancient horned dragon silhouettes had appeared above him.
Second level Wind Concept!
Duan Ling Tian’s attainments in Wind Concept had advanced a step further.
“When all is said and done, it’s all thanks to this whirlwind.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart as he looked at the whirlwind that swept towards the other side.
At the same time, a wisp of a smile appeared on the corners of his mouth.
The breakthrough of his Wind Concept also meant that his strength had advanced a step higher, and he possessed an extra strength of one ancient horned dragon.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, your comprehension ability is so high… You’re actually able to comprehend second level Wind Concept in the whirlwind.” At an unknown time, Han Xue Nai arrived by Duan Ling Tian’s side and she gasped in admiration.
Duan Ling Tian laughed bitterly.
If it wasn’t because he had no alternative, he wouldn’t do something entirely beyond him and forcefully fuse into the whirlwind and use it to comprehend Wind Concept.
The dangers of doing this was too great.
Of course, he didn’t aimlessly choose to do that.
Because he knew that once he really encountered danger, Xue Nai would surely lend a hand.
It was precisely because of this that he chose to go all out!
Otherwise, he wouldn’t go to the extent of gambling with his life.
Although he wasn’t willing to rely on Han Xue Nai, but when a danger to his life really arose, he couldn’t be bothered about all that.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian heard a wave of wind howls sound out from behind him.
Subsequently, a figure took the lead to flash towards the front of the cavern in full fury.
Duan Ling Tian looked carefully and recognized this person.
It was precisely the azure clothed old man, Elder Hu.
Presently, Elder Hu was dashing from the distance when suddenly, waves of scorching aura swept over from afar.
“That’s… Fire?” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted as he looked at the flames that covered the sky as they assaulted over.
These flames had obviously appeared out of thin air.
“Looks like there are many Inscription Formations in this second level.” Han Xue Nai’s beautiful eyes flashed as she spoke.
Duan Ling Tian caught his breath, and then his eyes squinted as he swiftly flashed through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor in his mind.
Instantly, he obtained a certain level of understanding towards the Inscription Formation that condensed the whirlwind and the flames that covered the sky.
“Looks like that Martial Monarch has mastered many Inscription Formations.” Duan Ling Tian sighed.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, let’s go over.” When Han Xue Nai saw the faraway Elder Hu had passed through the flames that covered the sky and vanished behind the flames, she was instantly slightly anxious, and she held Duan Ling Tian’s hand as she flashed over, whereas, Duan Ling Tian could only have been dragged over by Xue Nai.
When they approached the flames, Duan Ling Tian felt his entire body heat up, and his forehead couldn’t help but sweat like the rain.
“Ice!” Right at this moment, Han Xue Nai’s voice sounded out clearly.
Instantly, the extremely icy cold aura that appeared out of thin air froze Duan Ling Tian to the point he couldn’t help but shiver, and his entire body shuddered.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian felt as if he’d fallen into the two different worlds of fire and ice.
The icy cold aura had temporarily suppressed the flames that covered the sky.
With Han Xue Nai opening the way, Duan Ling Tian easily passed through the flames that covered the sky.
“Presently, amongst the forces of nature, Wind and Fire have appeared. Then it would be water, lightning, and earth… I’m really a jinx!” At the same time that Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself, he clearly saw the water that gushed forward and surged towards them.
This water seemed like violent waves from the ocean, and its speed was exceedingly swift.
When looked at from afar, layer after layer of shocking waves surged towards them.
Even when separated by an extremely great distance, Duan Ling Tian was still able to clearly feel an extremely strong pressure sweep over.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
The speed of the violent waves grew swifter and swifter, and it arrived nearby Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai after a short moment.
Every time these waves were to fiercely slapped down from above, there was no place in the cavern that wasn’t touched by it.
So before these violent waves, even a Void Prying Stage would find it difficult to fly and dodge it.
“Condense!” Han Xue Nai’s voice sounded out once more.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian saw that along with Han Xue Nai’s hand slowly raising, a strong wind that was icy cold to the extreme swept out towards the violent winds that roiled as they moved over, and the winds completely froze the waves.
The violent waves that were still surging forward a moment ago had completely quieted down now.
More precisely speaking, it had been frozen into ice by Han Xue Nai.
“Ice is made of water and colder than water… Ice had long ago surpassed water.” As he gazed at the scene before him, this thought couldn’t help but emerge in his heart.
“Let’s go, Big Brother Ling Tian.” Han Xue Nai once again stretched out her delicate hand to hold onto Duan Ling Tian’s hand, and then she brought Duan Ling Tian along to step on the firm ice that was extremely thick and continue walking forward.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Right after they passed the test of ‘water,’ Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai heard waves of thunderclaps from the distance.
“It’s a lightning tribulation!” Han Xue Nai looked towards the distance as she spoke with slight astonishment.
Duan Ling Tian looked over.
In the distance, a figure stood in the sky, and he was withstanding the ‘Heavenly Tribulation’ that covered the sky as it swept down…
This Heavenly Tribulation looked no different from the Heavenly Tribulation Duan Ling Tian had experienced when he just broke through to the Void Prying Stage.
However, in terms of thickness, these lightning bolts were much more terrifying.
Elder Hu who was right at the front had swept through the Heavenly Tribulation all along the way, and he gradually vanished behind the lightning bolts that covered the sky and descended down like the rain to continue heading towards the depths of the cavern.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai followed him.
The Heavenly Tribulation that covered the sky was extremely terrifying, and if it wasn’t for Han Xue Nai’s help, then even if Duan Ling Tian was able to pass through it; he’d have become heavily injured.
“Wind, Fire, Water, Lightning… We’ve already experiences four types of natural energies. Looks like it’s extremely likely that the energy of the Earth is next!” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself after they passed through the area covered in lightning.
The facts proved that Duan Ling Tian’s guess was correct.
It was exactly the energy of Earth that had appeared next.
The faraway ground suddenly started to shake, and it seemed as if the ground was quaking intensely…
The ground cracked open in all directions as if it had transformed into an enormous spiderweb, whereas the cracks that were like spiderwebs were ceaselessly enlarging, and in the blink of an eye, it had formed into numerous terrifying chasms.
Not only that, there were enormous rolling stones that covered the sky as they swept over from the distance, and they caused the entire cavern to quake as if the apocalypse had arrived.
Presently, even Elder Hu was in a slightly sorry state.
Those rolling stones seemed to be extremely hard.
Even when Elder Hu attacked it, it was difficult to shatter it, and he could only rely on the speed of his movement technique to dodge.
Han Xue Nai held Duan Ling Tian’s hand as she led the way to easily avoid the numerous rolling stones before surpassing Elder Hu.
“Now that the energy of the Earth has appeared… It wouldn’t be ice next, right?” Duan Ling Tian’s heart jerked as he thought to himself.
If it was ice, then with Han Xue Nai by his side, he wasn’t afraid of it.
But the others would probably be struck with misfortune.
But this time, Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts didn’t come true.
After they passed the area that was enveloped in the energy of the earth, the area of the cavern ahead of them didn’t activate an Inscription Formation any longer, and it was completely peaceful.
Along with Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai continuing forward, a turn appeared ahead, whereas, behind that curve, a stone platform appeared before the eyes of Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai.
This stone platform had a single jade slip placed upon it.
But, the attention of Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai weren’t on the jade slip that was on the stone platform now…
Their gazes were drawn by the ten stairways behind the stone platform.
Before these stairways were respectively a small stone platform, and on each of these stone platforms was an exquisite box.
The stone wasn’t tainted with a speck of dust, and it seemed as if it wasn’t a product of the same era as the box that Duan Ling Tian and Han Xue Nai had seen in the first level.
“Another Inscription Formation!” When Duan Ling Tian’s spiritual force swept out and approached the ten stairways that were distributed in the surroundings, he noticed something was off at the first possible moment.
Around these stairways was each an Inscription Formation that enveloped the top of it.
These Inscription formations were recorded in the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, and although they didn’t have any offensive strength, it had the restriction of only allowing entry but not exit.
In other words, anyone could choose to enter one of the Inscription Formations and enter easily without the slightest strain, but if one wanted to come out, then it was practically impossible.
Unless the person possessed a strength that was even more formidable than the existence that set up these Inscription Formations.
The person that set up these Inscription Formations was undoubtedly the Martial Monarch that left behind this Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
Not to mention Duan Ling Tian and the group of people behind him, then even if it was Han Xue Nai, her strength was far inferior to a Martial Monarch Stage Expert.
“Big Brother Ling Tian.” Duan Ling Tian was still surprised when Han Xue Nai’s voice had already sounded out, and it contained pleasant surprise mixed within.
Suddenly, Han Xue Nai had already arrived at the nearby stone platform, and she’d picked up the jade slip atop it.
“It’s a Voice Transmission Jade Slip?” After Duan Ling Tian approached Han Xue Nai, he’d recognized the jade slip.
“What’s recorded in that jade slip?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, it’s better if you listen to it yourself.” Han Xue Nai passed the jade slip to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian stretched out his hand to receive it, and then he fused his Origin Energy within, causing a clear voice to enter into his ears.
“Not matter who it is, so long as you’re able to enter the second level of my Inheritance Tomb and have passed through the tests of the five great forces of nature, it’s truly hard to come by… There’re a total of ten stairways before you, and I presume you’ve already seen them.”
“These ten stairways and the box on the small stone platform beside them each have a similar Inscription Formation enveloping them. Once you have chosen to enter one of the stairways, then you can’t leave it and can only walk down along that path…”
“Within every single box on the small stone platform at the side is a Concept Fragment! These Concept Fragments consist of a total of five types, and there are two of each. These Concept Fragments respectively correspond to the five forces of nature that all of you have experienced earlier.”
