Chapter 622: Nine-Tribulations Sword Control Technique
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Duan Ling Tian shook his head and restrained his mind that had seemed to have flown off into the distance, and he recovered his senses.
“Looks like this skeleton is that sword cultivating Martial Monarch that left behind this treasure… I wonder what the inheritance he left behind is.” Duan Ling Tian sized up the white clothed skeleton before him, and then he looked towards the surroundings yet didn’t notice anything.
There wasn’t a Spatial Ring on the fingers of the Martial Monarch.
“Where’s his Spatial Ring?” Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised, and he was filled with interest towards this Martial Monarch’s Spatial Ring.
There were surely many good things in the Spatial Ring of the Martial Monarch.
But along with Duan Ling Tian searching all around the spacious cavern, he didn’t notice the Spatial Ring left behind by the Martial Monarch.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian was slightly dejected. “This fellow wouldn’t be making a joke out of me, right?”
Duan Ling Tian returned to stand before the Martial Monarch’s skeleton and shook his head.
“Perhaps it’s on him.” Duan Ling Tian stretched out his hand unscrupulously to pull open the white clothes of the Martial Monarch’s skeleton, and although he didn’t find a Spatial Ring within it, he instead found a jade slip.
This jade slip flickered with a faint jade green sheen, and it looked to be of a much higher level than the Void Transmission Jade Slip.
After flashing through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian recognized what this was.
“Memory Jade Slip!” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath.
A Memory Jade Slip was able to remember an Inscription Formation, cultivation technique, martial skill, and other types of specific information.
Ordinary cultivation techniques and martial skills were recorded in small books.
But high grade cultivation techniques and martial skills were all directly recorded on Memory Jade Slips.
There were even many Inscription Masters that would leave behind their comprehension towards the art of inscriptions for the next generation before they died.
Of course, not every Inscription Master was able to do this.
The preciousness of the Memory Jade Slip was something that a Voice Transmission Jade Slip was utterly unable to compare to.
He’d only just held the Memory Jade Slip in his hand when Duan Ling Tian heard the voice of the Martial Monarch in his ears once more.
“No matter who it is, since you’re able to arrive here and obtain this Memory Jade Slip, then you can be considered to have acquired my inheritance… I don’t need you to take me as your Master. It’s sufficient as long as you don’t let down my inheritance.”
“After speaking so much nonsense, I still haven’t officially introduced myself. I was an orphan since young, with neither Father nor Mother, and I was poor for half my life. I was only able to attain the Martial Monarch Stage from successive fortuitous encounters!”
“My acquaintances call me White Clothes… Most people call me Tempest Sword Monarch or White Clothed Sword Monarch!”
“In my entire lifetime, due to my admiration of the Rebirth Martial Emperor that had suddenly vanished a few thousand years ago, I’ve touched upon both the Dao of Weapons Refinement and the Dao of Inscriptions… Of course, I’m far inferior to Senior Rebirth Martial Emperor.”
“This Memory Jade Slip contained the set up and utilization method of a few types of Inscription Formations that I’m most skilled in, and besides that, it also contains the sword skill I cultivated, the Nine-Tribulation Sword Control Technique.”
“After you obtain this jade slip, you can take the three Profundity Fragments in my skull. I hope that it’s able to assist you in attaining the Martial Monarch Stage in the future… Besides that, you can take away the spirit sword in my hand as well.”
“This spirit sword is a Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Weapon that’s practically extinct in Cloud Continent, and it’s rare in the world… Until you have the strength to protect it, try your best not to utilize it in public. A man’s wealth is his own ruin!”
“Now that I speak of it, the thing I loved the most in my lifetime it this Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword… Because it’s the work of Senior Rebirth Martial Emperor that I admire the most!”
“Before Senior Rebirth Martial Emperor, there was no spirit weapon at the Quasi Royal Grade and above, but after Senior Rebirth Martial Emperor, it’s probably difficult for another spirit weapon at the Quasi Royal Grade or above to appear… So, you have to properly take care of this sword.” The last words contained within the Memory Jade Slip stopped here.
“I never imagined that this White Clothed Sword Monarch was an admirer of the Rebirth Martial Emperor… But, I believe it when he said there wasn’t a Quasi Royal Grade or above spirit weapon, yet it’s not necessarily true that it’s difficult for another spirit weapon at the Quasi Royal Grade or above to appear after the Rebirth Martial Emperor!” As he finished muttering to himself, a wisp of a smile appeared on the corner of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth.
So long as his cultivation stepped into the Martial Monarch Stage, he would be able to condense a Quasi Royal Grade Weapon Fire and would be able to refine Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Weapons.
“Not to mention a Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Weapon… If I’m able to attain the Martial Emperor Stage, then even a Royal Grade Spirit Weapon is easy to refine.” Duan Ling Tian had a confident expression.
He’d completely inherited the lifetime worth of memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, and amongst those memories included the Weapons Refinement experience and methods of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
So long as his cultivation and materials were sufficient, refining a high grade spirit weapon was extremely easy.
“Based on what this White Clothed Sword Monarch said, he’s actually a figure from a few thousand years ago…” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flickered as he thought to himself.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian’s attention returned to the Memory Jade Slip in his hands.
Along with Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force touching it, vast amounts of information directly gushed into Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
Fortunately Duan Ling Tian was prepared, otherwise, just this moment would have probably knocked Duan Ling Tian out.
In next to no time, he’d ordered up all this information.
“Inscription Formation… Eh, isn’t this the Inscription Formation that’s able to induce the nine swords to combine into one? Even if it was the Rebirth Martial Emperor from all those years ago, he had no fortune in being able to study this Inscription Formation, yet I never imagined that this White Clothed Sword Monarch would actually know how to set it up.” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be surprised when he ordered this portion of memories.
Besides this Inscription Formation, Duan Ling Tian disregarded the other Inscription Formations.
Those Inscription Formations were all contained within the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, and only this Split-Unite Inscription Formation wasn’t.
The Split-Unite Inscription Formation was the Inscription Formation contained within the jade sword that was the key to the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
It was precisely because of the existence of this Inscription Formation that the jade sword was able to split into nine and unite into one once again.
“There’s also this sword skill…” Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian moved his attention to the sword skill that the White Clothed Sword Monarch had left behind.
This sword skill was actually a Heaven Rank sword skill!
It stressed upon a single spirit sword being split into nine and controlling these nine spirit swords to fight against one’s enemies.
“This sword skill needs to be combined with that Split-Unite Inscription Formation… But the White Clothed Sword Monarch had inscribed the Split-Unite Inscription Formation on that Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword, the weapon he carried in his possession at all times.” Duan Ling Tian returned to his senses, and his gaze descended onto the spirit sword in the hand of the White Clothed Sword Monarch.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian lightly took the sword in his hand.
Relying on the information left behind by the White Clothed Sword Monarch, Duan Ling Tian was skillful in the control of the Split-Unite Inscription Formation to the point he controlled it extremely casually.
Duan Ling Tian’s hand shook, and his Origin Energy fused into the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword.
In the next moment, a bright light flashed past the spirit sword, and it transformed into nine spirit swords…
“This Nine-Tribulations Sword Control Technique is interesting as it actually requires to be combined with the art of sword control… But this art of sword control requires the combined usage of Spiritual Force to execute it.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart, following the information to learn the art of sword control, and with a raise of his hand, he tossed the nine Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Swords in the air.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force swept out to envelop these nine spirit swords, and he intended to control these spirit swords to float in the air.
But unfortunately, with Duan Ling Tian’s current Spiritual Force, he was barely able to make one spirit sword float in the air, moreover, it was even shaking and would fall down at any moment.
As for the other spirit swords, they’d instead directly fallen to the ground and caused a wave of clamorous sound to resound out.
“This Nine-Tribulations Sword Control Technique is slightly interesting… Although the strength of the nine swords are unable to overlap and add on to each other, but when the nine swords attack from all around, it’s instead able to make others unable to guard against it!” Duan Ling Tian has merged with the lifetime worth of memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, causing his eyesight to be discerning, and he realized how extraordinary the Nine-Tribulations Sword Control Technique was.
To a certain extent, this Nine-Tribulations Sword Control Technique was even not inferior to the best high grade Heaven Rank offense martial skill in the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor — The Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash.
The Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash was a high grade Heaven Rank offense martial skill that was contained within the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique that Duan Ling Tian cultivated. He was able to cultivate it after the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique had reached the seventh form, and its might was extremely terrifying.
“With my current strength, no matter if it is the Nine-Tribulation Sword Control Technique or the Nine Dragon’s Radiant Flash, they’re both impossible to cultivate… I should think about this in the future.” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian returned to his senses, and his gaze once again descended onto the nine spirit swords.
His Spiritual Force stretched out to touch the Inscription Formation in one of the spirit swords, and instantly, the nine spirit swords once again united into one.
“Unfortunately, after this Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword is split into nine, it can’t be used by itself… Otherwise, it would be equivalent to having nine Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Swords in my possession.” Duan Ling Tian was slightly disappointed about this.
But he knew that it was impossible for such an abnormal thing to appear in this world.
An Inscription Formation being able to split a single Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword into nine, and they were even able to be utilized by themselves… Wouldn’t an Inscription Formation like that be heaven defying?
If an Inscription Formation like this really existed, then it would probably not even be tolerated by the heavens.
“After the spirit sword splits into nine, it can only be jointly used by a single person… Combined with the Nine-Tribulations Sword Control Technique, the nine swords can sweep out from all directions, and any one of the swords possessed the amplification strength of a Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword!” When he thought of how he’d have the chance in the future to rely on the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword that has split into nine to execute the Nine-Tribulations Sword Control Technique, Duan Ling Tian felt slightly excited in his heart.
Gradually, Duan Ling Tian’s mood calmed down.
His gaze descended onto the white clothed skeleton before his eyes.
He still remembered the last words of the White Clothed Sword Monarch.
In those last words, he’d asked Duan Ling Tian to take the three Profundity Fragments from his remains…
Three Profundity Fragments!
“Earlier, within the words left behind by the White Clothed Sword Monarch, he seemed to have mentioned that people addressed him as the Tempest Sword Monarch… Tempest… Wind, Lightning, Sword? Could it be that the three types of Profundity Fragments in his skull is a Wind Profundity Fragment, a Lightning Profundity Fragment, and a Sword Profundity Fragment?” When he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian’s mood that had just calmed down surged once more.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian’s hands that were practically trembling stuck into the skull of the White Clothed Sword Monarch to touch that three Profundity Fragments…
“AH!” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian felt a fierce and swift aura sweep towards his hand, and it tore open his hand.
He hurriedly circulated his Origin Energy before being able to withstand this swift and fierce aura.
