Chapter 620: Real and Fake Duan Ling Tian
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
A dim light flashed deep within Duan Ling Tian’s eyes as he hastily utilized his soul skill…
Now he was purely making every possible effort.
He wasn’t the slightest bit sure that he would be able to break through this illusory space with his soul skill, Thousand Illusions.
At this instant, Duan Ling Tian constructed an illusory space and enveloped himself.
In the next moment, the scene before his eyes changed, and a boundless grassland covered in beautiful green grass appeared before him.
A light breeze that carried along the fragrance of grass blew over, causing him to feel relaxed and happy.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian felt that the ground beneath his feet started to shake abruptly, and it was as if it was an earthquake.
Subsequently, under his gaze, this illusory space that was created from the soul skill, Thousand Illusion, shattered into pieces.
Along with it, the beautifully decorated palace which was the fifth test of wisdom left behind by the Martial Monarch had shattered as well.
“Congratulations on passing the fifth test… So long as you defeat the Mirror Puppet and pass through the final test, the sixth test, you will directly obtain my inheritance and leave this place!” The Martial Monarch’s voice sounded out from all directions and clearly entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“I’ve passed just like that?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
Up until now, he was still slightly unable to recover from his shock.
Earlier, when he utilized the soul skill, Thousand Illusions, he didn’t have the slightest confidence in breaking open the illusory space left behind by the Martial Monarch.
Now the outcome was something that was slightly unexpected to him.
“Mirror Puppet!” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian recovered from his shook and took a deep breath, and slight fear suffused his eyes.
All along this way, he’d already experience two tests of strength.
The first test of strength was the 100 pure Origin Shadowpuppets that were slaughtered in a one-sided manner by him.
This second test of strength was instead the Earth Puppet. Its offensive strength was strong and defensive strength was abnormal, and if it wasn’t for him comprehended Lightning Concept in time, he would probably have been unable to pass that test.
From his previous experiences, the test of strength became more difficult as he progressed.
Now, he was about to face the third test of strength, and it was also the final test.
“Undoubtedly, this Mirror Puppet is stronger than the Earth Puppet… Yet I wonder until what extent would its strength be?” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and was mentally prepared.
Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian felt a fierce and swift aura suddenly come from ahead…
When he raised his head and looked ahead, Duan Ling Tian was completely stunned.
What have I seen?
Presently, a person had appeared out of thin air in front of Duan Ling Tian.
More precisely speaking, it was a young man in violet clothes.
What shocked Duan Ling Tian was that this violet clothed young man was exactly identical to him in appearance, and even their specific details were practically without the slightest difference.
No matter if it was appearance or height, it was exactly identical.
Most importantly, in the hand of the violet clothed young man was an extremely ugly incomplete sword…
This incomplete sword was exactly identical to the grade one spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
“What’s going on?” Duan Ling Tian could be sure that there absolutely was nothing similar to a mirror before him.
Moreover, his grade one spirit sword was laying perfectly well in his Spatial Ring.
“His eyes…” Duan Ling Tian, who felt extremely shocked, lightly raised his head to look at the eyes of the violet clothed young man that had an exactly identical appearance as him.
The violet clothed young man’s eyes were empty and listless, his entire body stiff and seemed as if it was without a soul.
“This is… Mirror Image Inscription Formation?” The memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor flashed within Duan Ling Tian’s mind, and he quickly found the answer.
The Mirror Image Inscription Formation was an extremely advanced Inscription Formation.
Ordinarily speaking, only an Inscription Master at the Martial Monarch Stage or above was able to set it up.
This type of Inscription Formation was extremely overbearing, and it was a great tool in trapping others.
No matter who it was, so long as the person stepped into the Mirror Image Inscription Formation, they would encounter a Mirror Puppet that possessed a similar appearance and ability as the person.
“Besides not having a soul and being unable to execute soul skill and being able to be immune to soul skills, this Mirror Puppet is practically identical to me! No matter if it’s my abilities or my battle instincts!” Duan Ling Tian looked at the Mirror Puppet before his eyes, and he couldn’t help but gasp. “Most terrifying of it all is the Mirror Puppet is instantaneously able to follow the changes that occur in me.
“For example, when I faced the Earth Puppet earlier, I comprehended Lightning Concept all of a sudden and was able to destroy the Earth Puppet!
“Yet during my battle with the Mirror Puppet that’s mirroring myself, if I comprehend a higher Concept, its Concept would transform along with my transformation… This is an opponent that possesses a strength that’s identical to me.
“Most terrifying of it all is that it doesn’t have a soul and thoughts, and utterly knows no fear… In its world, there is only slaughter!” Duan Ling Tian’s face was filled with fear.
An existence like this was something that he felt he would at most be able to fight to a tie, and it was practically impossible to defeat such an opponent.
“If I can choose myself… I’d rather face ten Earth Puppets than face my own Mirror Puppet.” Duan Ling Tian laughed bitterly.
Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian felt a swift and fierce aura assault his face.
It was the Mirror Puppet than had moved to attack him.
The Mirror Puppet’s figure flashed out to directly execute his most familiar high grade Earth Rank movement technique, Whirlwind, and it arrived before him in the blink of an eye.
Sword Drawing Arts!
A similar Sword Drawing Arts was executed in the hands of the Mirror Puppet, and it wasn’t the slightest bit unnatural in its hand.
The sword light that was like a bolt of lightning flashed out like a shadow.
Not only that, within the sword light was Duan Ling Tian’s familiar second level Wind Concept, first level Lightning Concept, and Elementary Earth Force.
The icy cold sword light that assault his face caused Duan Ling Tian to be unable to refrain from shuddering.
Duan Ling Tian dodged hastily, and the extremely swift sword light practically rubbed past his face as it descended.
An inconspicuous white mark appeared on his face.
The dangerous scene caused Duan Ling Tian to instantly sober up.
The extremely ugly incomplete sword appeared out of thin air in Duan Ling Tian’s hand, and it was precisely the grade one spirit sword he’d obtained from the first test.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian and the Mirror Puppet were like a pair of twins, completely identical from head to toe….
The only difference was that the Mirror Puppet’s eyes were empty and listless.
Because the Mirror Puppet didn’t have a soul.
The Mirror Puppet attacked once more, a Tempest sword light that was twined with Wind Concept and Lightning Concept shot out from the tip of the spirit sword in its hand, and it flashed towards Duan Ling Tian like a sharp arrow that had been shot from a heavy bow.
It seemed as if it wanted to pierce through Duan Ling Tian’s body.
“Hmph!” Duan Ling Tian grunted coldly before suddenly taking a step out.
Instantly, the spirit sword in his hand similarly struck straight out, and an identical Tempest sword light whistled out to collide with the sword light that shout out from the Mirror Puppet’s sword.
The sword lights collided with each other before vanishing, and a gust of piercingly cold gale swept out, blowing the violet clothes that Duan Ling Tian and the Mirror Puppet wore to the point of fluttering in the wind.
The Tempest sword light was an ability that Duan Ling Tian executed based on the method of force exertion in the Tempest Point.
He was able to easily execute it as if he was moving his limbs, and its might was extraordinary!
But unfortunately, Duan Ling Tian was facing the Mirror Puppet head on, and for a time, they were evenly matched.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
In a short moment, two exceedingly swift figures sometimes crossed each other and sometimes carried out a narrow and long sword light within the cavern.
Duan Ling Tian and the Mirror Puppet were battling intensely at full force.
Between the two of them, their Origin Energy, Concept, and combat experience was equivalent….
Practically all their abilities were exactly identical.
Time slowly flowed by.
After an hour passed, Duan Ling Tian and the Mirror Puppet still hadn’t decided on a victor, and they’d always been in a state of being evenly matched.
Gradually, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be slightly anxious.
“If this continues on, when will it end?” Duan Ling Tian was restless in his heart.
This also caused his attacks to be slightly affected by his mood, causing him to be slightly in a disadvantage position for the next part of the battle.
“Dammit!” After he fell into a disadvantageous position, Duan Ling Tian encountered the attacks of the Mirror Puppet that was like a storm, and the Mirror Puppet obviously wanted to defeat and even kill him in one go.
“This fellow doesn’t have a soul, so it utterly won’t have an anxious mood like me… Most terrifying of it all is that it has a battle instinct that’s no different to mine, and one it found a trace of a flaw of mine, it would use it without letting off!” When faced with the attacks of the Mirror Puppet that was like a storm, Duan Ling Tian steadily lost ground and was in an extremely sorry state.
The Mirror Puppet seemed like a cold blooded machine that had no feelings, and for the sake of achieving its objective, it exerted all its strength without the slightest bit of fear.
“Could it be that a real being like me would lose to a Mirror Puppet?” Duan Ling Tian’s expression was unsightly to the extreme.
Only someone in Duan Ling Tian’s situation would be able to understand Duan Ling Tian’s current mood.
Just like the other people who were in the third level of the Sword Monarch’s Treasure and were battling fiercely with a Mirror Puppet of their own…
The spacious cavern was covered in a layer of thick and hard ice, whereas, atop the hard ice were two identical beautiful figures that were ceaselessly crossing past each other…
Suddenly, the two of them split up to stand in midair in confrontation.
Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!
Clear sounds ceaselessly sounded out from something in their hands.
When looked at carefully, it was an exquisite bell.
The bell’s ring seemed to have the ability to capture one’s soul, and it caused others to be unable to defend against it.
The two young women that were in confrontation had exactly identical appearances, and they were around the age of 15 or 16 and were beautiful.
It could be imagined that once they grew up, the two young women would surely be drop dead gorgeous beauties.
But one of the young women was slightly peculiar.
She didn’t have the lively eyes of the other young girl, and she only had a pair of empty and listless eyes as if she had no soul.
“F**k!” The young girl with liveliness in her eyes said angrily, “Not only does this fellow had a strength that’s similar to me, it even has a similar weapon as mine… It wasn’t just that, even its Ice Concept is exactly identical to mine!”
“This is the final test… There’s a total of six tests and I’ve already failed one. Could it be that I’m going to fail a second?”
