Chapter 694: Surmounting A Level To Do Battle
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Big Brother Duan, if you’re interested in this defensive martial skill, I can teach it to you… This defensive martial skill can be executed by relying on any spirit weapon and Concept,” said Feng Tian Wu to Duan Ling Tian via voice transmission.
At the same time that warmth arose in Duan Ling Tian’s heart from hearing this, his gaze was extremely complicated.
Perhaps the defensive martial skill Feng Tian Wu executed earlier couldn’t compare to a Heaven Rank defensive martial skill, but to someone who hadn’t comprehended Intermediate Concept, it was a heaven defying martial skill.
Once this defensive martial skill was executed, then so long as one’s opponent’s strength didn’t exceed one’s own by a great deal, the user would be practically capable of defeating all such opponents.
Moreover, even the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor didn’t contain a martial skill like this, and it was sufficient to show how precious it was.
Now, Feng Tian Wu readily wanted to teach it to him, and it was sufficient to show his importance in Feng Tian Wu’s heart.
“There’s no need.” But, Duan Ling Tian still refused Feng Tian Wu’s good intentions.
It wasn’t that he was such a great person, but it was because he felt there was no need.
No matter how high one’s comprehension ability was, wanting to cultivate this defensive martial skill to the level Feng Tian Wu executed it at would require at least 2 or 3 years of time.
Not to mention Duan Ling Tian didn’t have the time to cultivate this defensive martial skill. Even if he did, he wouldn’t cultivate it.
Because his biggest goal at the moment was to successfully comprehend Intermediate Wind Concept before the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties began a year from now.
At that time, he could directly cultivate the various Heaven Rank martial skills in the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, and there was no lack of Heaven Rank defensive martial skills that could rely on the amplification of spirit weapons.
So there was utterly no need for him to waste time on this type of defensive martial skill.
“Su Li.” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian returned to his sense, and his gaze converged towards the sky above the Cage Battle Arena.
At this moment, Su Li and an eighth level Void Initiation Stage young genius were standing in confrontation.
This eighth level Void Initiation Stage young genius had a fought a battle earlier, and he’d only comprehended seventh level Concept, causing him to be unable to be of any threat to Su Li.
But because Su Li hadn’t truly revealed his strength up until now, this young genius that was Su Li’s opponent didn’t know of Su Li’s true ability.
Suddenly, Su Li’s opponent attacked.
His entire body flashed out and seemed to have transformed into a sharp arrow that had left the bowstring of a heavy bow, and he arrived before Su Li in the blink of an eye.
With a raise of his hand, an azure sword light that was condensed into form from Origin Energy and seventh level Sword Concept flashed out and seemed to have transformed into a venomous azure serpent that fiercely bit at Su Li.
“Die!” Su Li’s opponent shouted out angrily as the sword in his hand pointed towards Su Li’s throat. Obviously, he wanted to kill this person that challenged him with a single sword strike.
“Hmph!” When he noticed the killing intent in his opponent’s sword, Su Li snorted coldly before attacking as well.
A similar sword light was skillfully executed by Su Li, yet it contained an even stronger Sword Concept that was like a shadow as it intercepted his opponent’s sword light.
At this instant, it seemed like two venomous serpents were biting each other.
Some spectators with low cultivation covered their ears hurriedly when they saw this scene, as they were deeply afraid the sounds of the collisions of the two spirit swords would damage their eardrums.
In next to no time, they realized that their worries were truly too unnecessary.
Another ear piercing sword howl resounded out.
Subsequently, the people present could clearly see that Su Li had flashed out and seemed to transform into a sharp sword that pierced through the sky, whereas, when he and his sword were about to collide with the spirit sword of his opponent, he instantly dodged to the side.
At the instant before his opponent reacted to this, Su Li had attacked once more.
The spirit sword in Su Li’s hand seemed as if it had eyes as it directly flashed towards his opponent.
In the next moment, a hideous bloody hole had appeared on the throat of Su Li’s opponent, causing dazzling and resplendent blood to spray out from it, and his opponent struggled a for a few moments before finally stiffening.
After being carried out by momentum for a distance, the figure of Su Li’s opponent stopped and plunged to the ground.
Another corpse hung on the cage above the Cage Battle Arena.
“What a swift sword!” When Su Li attacked to kill his opponent, Duan Ling Tian’s pupils had already been unable to refrain from constricting, and his face was filled with astonishment.
At that instant, he clearly saw Su Li execute an extremely pure sword skill.
The sword skill didn’t have any fanciness to it, and it stressed upon being straightforward.
As soon as the sword struck out, blood would be seen.
This was something that achieved a similar result as his Sword Drawing Arts, but with different means, but the sword skill Su Li executed was obviously much more formidable than his Sword Drawing Arts.
“Perhaps only by utilizing the Tempest Point would I be able to keep up with the speed Su Li executed his sword skill with earlier.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
If Su Li utilized a grade three spirit sword to kill his opponent, Duan Ling Tian wouldn’t be so shocked.
But the problem was Su Li had only used a grade four spirit sword.
In terms of strength, he only surpassed his opponent by a single level in Sword Concept, and possessed an extra strength of one ancient horned dragon.
Killing one’s opponent who’s only inferior to one by the strength of a single horned dragon in a single move was unbelievable in the eyes of any Void Initiation Stage martial artist.
Yet Su Li had achieved it by utilizing his pure and formidable sword skill.
“Another eighth level Void Initiation Stage young genius has died!” After everyone in the Cage Battle Arena recovered from their shock, they sighed.
“This young sword cultivator seems to be a member of the Darkstone Empire… The members of the Darkstone Empire have really seized the limelight this time!”
“Yeah. Up until now, not only does the Darkstone Empire have Duan Ling Tian, who had entered the second round of the selections, there are another two people that have similarly entered the second round of the selections… This young sword cultivator and Duan Ling Tian will surely advance from the second round of selections. I only wonder if the remaining young genius is able to successfully advance.”
“That person seems to be a seventh level Void Initiation Stage martial artist… I think he’s in a dangerous position. After all, besides the six ninth level Void Initiation Stage young geniuses and the three eighth level Void Initiation Stage young geniuses, only a single position to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties remains.”
“A single position competed for by nine seventh level Void Initiation Stage young geniuses… It’s dangerous indeed.”
The surroundings of the Cage Battle Arena were filled with animated discussions, and the gazes of many people descended onto Long Yun as they shook their heads.
When he heard these discussions, Long Yun’s gaze was like a saber that flickered with a ghastly cold light.
He was determined to obtain the final position!
He wanted to do more than that today.
Under the gazes of everyone present, Su Li returned to the sky above the spectating area the members of the Darkstone Empire were seated at and stood by Long Yun’s side.
“Su Li, congratulations!” Meanwhile, everyone from the Darkstone Empire including King Yong congratulated Su Li.
“Who’s issuing a challenge next?” In next to no time, the old man’s voice sounded out once more, causing the nerves of the other nine young geniuses besides Su Li and Feng Tian Wu to become strained.
A wave of the howls of the wind sounded out abruptly, and a young man appeared in the sky above the Cage Battle Arena.
“Long Yun!” When Duan Ling Tian looked at Long Yun who was in the sky above the Cage Battle Arena, he didn’t think anything of it, but when he noticed Long Yun’s gaze had actually locked onto Feng Yun Xiang who’d challenged Feng Tian Wu and admitted defeat, he couldn’t help but be shocked.
Long Yun wanted to rely on his cultivation at the seventh level of the Void Initiation Stage to surmount a level and challenge Feng Yun Xiang?
At this instant, without mentioning anything else, Duan Ling Tian slight admiration faintly emerged within Duan Ling Tian’s heart as he admired Long Yun’s courage.
“As a top figure in the younger generation of the Feng Clan, Feng Yun Xiang possesses a Saber Concept that’s at a similar level as Long Yun, yet his cultivation is a level higher than Long Yun, thus giving him an extra strength of an ancient horned dragon… Even if Long Yun utilizes a grade three spirit saber, his strength would at most be equal to Feng Yun Xiang.
“This battle is extremely dangerous to the both of them… Since Long Yun chose in this way, then he’s either determined to gain face, or he really has the confidence to defeat his opponent.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
“I challenge you!” Finally, Long Yun looked at Feng Yun Xiang as he spoke resolutely.
For a time, the originally clamorous Cage Battle Arena became deathly silent.
“You want to challenge me?” Feng Yun Xiang was stunned when he was challenged by Long Yun, and then he asked with slight uncertainty.
At this moment, he even thought that Long Yun had mistaken him for someone else.
“Not only do I want to challenge you, I want to kill you!” Long Yun slowly opened his mouth, and his face was suffused with an evil smile as his eyes were covered with killing intent.
Long Yun’s reply was like a stone that caused a thousand ripples, causing the quiet Cage Battle Arena to instantly become bustling.
Numerous gazes from every direction pierced through the sky to descend onto Long Yun.
At this moment, Long Yun had become the center of attention of the entire Cage Battle Arena.
“A seventh level Void Initiation Stage martial artist dares challenge an eighth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist, and even threatens to kill his opponent… No matter what, this courage is hard to come by!”
“Exactly! With the Ye Clan’s Ye Lu and the Darkmoon Sect’s Feng Yu as an example, this saber cultivator of the Darkstone Empire actually still dares to surmount a realm to challenge an opponent. His courage truly deserves compliment.”
“No matter what the outcome is… I support him!”
“I support him as well!”
The atmosphere in the entire Cage Battle Arena was completely lit ablaze along with Long Yun challenging the eighth level Void Initiation Stage young genius, Feng Yun Xiang.
“A seventh level Void Initiation Stage martial artist like you wants to kill me?” Feng Yun Xiang started laughing, and as he finished laughing, his face seemed to be covered in a layer of ice. “If you can’t kill me during this battle… Then you’re dead!”
“That would depend on if you have the ability.” Long Yun spoke indifferently.
“Hmph!” Feng Yun Xiang grunted coldly, he couldn’t restrain himself any longer, and he attacked first to gain the upper hand.
Om! Om! Om! Om! Om!
Just like when he fought Feng Tian Wu earlier, saber images that covered the heavens and the earth swept out, and they seemed to have transformed into a heaven encompassing net that enveloped Long Yun.
In the sky above Feng Yun Xiang, 24 ancient horned dragon silhouettes and over 3,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes dashed out behind him.
Eighth level of the Void Initiation Stage!
Seventh level Saber Concept!
Grade four spirit saber!
This was Feng Yun Xiang’s strength.
“Duan Ling Tian, how long do you think Long Yun will take to kill Feng Yun Xiang?” Duan Ling Tian was originally watching the battle with concentration, yet suddenly, a clear voice transmission sounded out by his ear.
Duan Ling Tian was able to discern that this voice transmission was from Su Li.
Duan Ling Tian was first stunned before asking. “Are you so sure that Long Yun is able to kill him?”
