Chapter 697: The Battle For No.7
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
When faced with Feng Tian Wu’s challenge, Long Yun’s gaze flickered slightly before directly admitting defeat.
He’d already witnessed Feng Tian Wu’s strength.
Even though he was extremely confident of his own ability, but the gap in their strengths caused him to feel a wave of powerlessness.
Not only did this red clothed young woman that was shockingly young possess a cultivation that was higher than him, her comprehension in Concept was higher than his, and even the grade three spirit weapon in her possession was stronger than his.
He’s witnessed the might of the grade three spirit weapon in the young woman’s possession, it was a grade three spirit weapon that could provide an amplification of 70%.
It was much more powerful than the grade three spirit weapon in his possession.
All of this caused his comprehensive strength to be far inferior to the young woman, and there was utterly no need to undergo a battle.
The woman’s strength was sufficient to crush him.
“Su Li!” After Long Yun admitted defeat, Feng Tian Wu’s gaze moved onto Su Li, and she nodded lightly to Su Li.
Compared to Long Yun, she looked at Su Li with slight politeness.
All of this was naturally because she knew Su Li was Duan Ling Tian’s friend.
Unlike Long Yun who admitted defeat, when faced with Feng Tian Wu’s challenge, Su Li wasn’t afraid in the slightest, and he flew out to stand in confrontation with Feng Tian Wu.
“Young Miss Tian Wu.” Su Li nodded to Feng Tian Wu.
“I know you’re Big Brother Duan’s friend… But I’m determined to obtain the seventh position in the Dynasty Martial Competition today!” Feng Tian Wu spoke to Su Li with a tone filled with confidence.
“I’m the same.” Su Li didn’t have the slightest intention of being polite when facing Feng Tian Wu, who was like a celestial maiden that descended to the mortal world, and he seemed as if he wasn’t facing a peerless beauty, but an ordinary person that couldn’t be any more ordinary.
The two of them stood facing each other and had successfully attracted the gazes of everyone present.
Feng Tian Wu, the Feng Clan Eldest Master’s daughter, when she revealed her ability for the first time today, she showed her shocking strength.
A cultivation at the eighth level of the Void Initiation Stage, eighth level Fire Concept, and a grade three spirit whip that provided an amplification of 70%.
Su Li, the young genius of the Darkstone Empire had a cultivation and Concept that was equal to Feng Tian Wu.
But up until now, in the eyes of the crowd in the Cage Battle Arena, the spirit weapon Su Li had reveal was only a grade four spirit sword.
“This Su Li from the Darkstone Empire has a cultivation and Concept that isn’t bad, and it isn’t inferior to Young Miss Tian Wu… But, the spirit weapon in his possession is only a grade four spirit sword, so he’ll surely be at a disadvantage.”
“A grade four spirit sword is much inferior to the grade three spirit whip in the hands of Young Miss Tian Wu… Most importantly, the grade three spirit whip in Young Miss Tian Wu’s possession is capable of providing an amplification of 70%!”
“The difference in spirit weapon is too great… Su Li has no chance of winning in this battle.”
Practically all the surrounding crowd of spectators in the Cage Battle Arena didn’t look favorably upon Su Li.
Yet when faced with the doubt of the crowd, Su Li’s expression remained unchanged.
“Su Li, I won’t use my grade three spirit weapon when fighting you,” said Feng Tian Wu to Su Li, her words frank and open like a man.
For a time, the entire Cage Battle Arena was in an uproar.
“Young Miss Tian Wu is worthy of being Lord Wu Dao’s daughter, she’s frank and open, and she’s unwilling to take advantage of Su Li with her spirit weapon.”
“I envy the Darkstone Empire’s Duan Ling Tian more and more now… What ability does he possess to actually be able to marry such an outstanding woman like Young Miss Tian Wu?”
“You’re asking what ability Duan Ling Tian possesses? You’re nothing compared to him.”
The discussions in the surroundings of the Cage Battle Arena had unconsciously moved onto Duan Ling Tian.
Many people were speaking ill of Duan Ling Tian, and there were also many people that were feeling outraged in Duan Ling Tian’s stead, the latter were mostly people that admired Duan Ling Tian from the bottom of their hearts.
“Tian Wu and this fellow Su Li are undergoing a ranking battle, yet they’re actually able to pull me in…” Duan Ling Tian had a strange gaze as he felt he was caught in the crossfire.
Who did I offend or provoke?
“There’s no need!” When he heard Feng Tian Wu’s frank words, Su Li shook his head instead.
Right when Feng Tian Wu revealed a bewildered expression, a three foot long blade that had flowing lights revolving around it had appeared out of thin air in Su Li’s hand.
“This isn’t the spirit sword Su Li utilized earlier!” In next to no time, someone noticed an inkling.
Meanwhile, Origin Energy appeared in Su Li’s hand before fusing into the three foot long blade in his hand.
Instantly, 11 ancient horned dragon silhouettes appeared in the sky before another 7 ancient horned dragon silhouettes and over 4,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared.
“An amplification of 68%… A grade three spirit sword!”
“Su Li possesses a grade three spirit weapon as well? My god! Is today the great gathering of grade three spirit weapons?”
“Doesn’t our Darkhan Dynasty only possess a single grade three spirit weapon? Moreover, that grade three spirit weapon seems to be in the possession of the Imperial Family, right?”
Along with a grade three spirit sword appearing in Su Li’s hand, the entire Cage Battle Arena was in an uproar.
If it was said that someone wasn’t surprised at this moment, then Duan Ling Tian would be that person.
He’s heard long ago that Su Li and Long Yun possessed grade three spirit weapons, so even if he saw Su Li withdraw a grade three spirit sword with his own two eyes, he wouldn’t think anything of it.
“Brother Ling Tian, all the three grade three spirit weapons in their hands were refined by the grade three Weapons Craftsman that’s backing you?” Duan Ling Tian’s composed expression was completely noticed by Xiang Ying, and Xiang Ying couldn’t refrain from asking via voice transmission, and his tone contained slight anxiousness.
Duan Ling Tian was slightly taken by surprise when he received Xiang Ying’s voice transmission, and he only reacted to it after a short moment.
He knew Xiang Ying had overthought things.
“Pavilion Master Xiang, you’re overthinking things.” Duan Ling Tian replied truthfully.
“I’m overthinking?” Xiang Ying was first stunned, and then he asked a step further. “Am I really thinking too much? No matter if it’s the Feng Clan’s Young Miss Tian Wu, or Su Li and Long Yun who’re young geniuses of the Darkstone Empire, all of them seem to be deeply related to you, right?”
“That’s right.” Duan Ling Tian didn’t deny this. “The three of them do more or less have a slight relationship with me… But only Tian Wu’s grade three spirit weapon was refined by the grade three Weapons Craftsman that’s backing me. Su Li and Long Yun’s grade three spirit weapons are unrelated to me.”
“Moreover, amongst the two of them, I’m friends with Su Li and would perhaps be able to ask the grade three Weapons Craftsman that’s backing me to refine a grade three spirit weapon for Su Li, but it’s impossible that I would help Long Yun.” Duan Ling Tian spoke frankly and openly.
Xiang Ying didn’t doubt this, but he still couldn’t refrain from saying in shock. “Brother Ling Tian, the grade three Weapons Craftsman who’s behind you is truly an extraordinary figure! He’s actually capable of refining a grade three spirit weapon that can provide an amplification of 70% like the spirit weapon in Young Miss Tian Wu’s possession.”
“He’s alright.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. Luckily, he was thick skinned, otherwise, he would probably be praised to the point of being unable to refrain from blushing.
“Another grade three spirit weapon!” On the first-class spectating area that belonged to the Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family, the corners of the Emperor’s mouth twitched, and his dignified appearance had vanished.
Even with his lofty status in the Darkhan Dynasty, he couldn’t help but be shocked at this moment.
“It’s a member of the Darkstone Empire again!” The black clothed old man couldn’t refrain from gasping.
“The fortune of the members of the Darkstone Empire is outstanding indeed.” Bai Hao, that had always remained silent, spoke out in what was a rare occasion, and his tone contained slight surprise.
As for Zi Shang and Zi Yan, they didn’t say anything.
But the greed in the eyes of Bai He who sat by Zi Yan’s side was even more greater than when Long Yun withdrew a grade three spirit saber. “Another grade three spirit weapon… Moreover, it’s a grade three spirit sword!”
He himself used a sword and had comprehended Sword Concept.
Compared to a grade three spirit saber, he wanted a grade three spirit sword even more desperately.
“Su Li?” Bai He’s eyes were filled with yearning.
But in next to no time, a string of words entered into Bai He’s ears, and it was like a pail of cold water sprayed on him. “Bai He, you better not even think about the grade three spirit weapons in that Long Yun and Su Li’s possession!”
Bai He was able to discern that this was the voice transmission of his Imperial Father, the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor.
The Emperor had obviously noticed the greed that Bai He’s gaze revealed.
“Why?” Bai He frowned when he heard this, and he replied with unwillingness.
“Hmph!” The Emperor grunted via voice transmission, and he spoke with slight disappointment. “Didn’t you think about it properly? Why would he possess a grade three spirit weapon? Do you think it fell down from the heavens like a pie falling from the heavens? Moreover, they’re only members of a mere Empire, yet are able to possess this strength of theirs. Do you think there isn’t an expert standing behind them?”
The Emperor’s words were spoken with extreme reason, causing Bai He to be slightly hesitant.
Meanwhile, besides utilizing his grade three spirit sword, Su Li had even directly revealed the eighth level Sword Concept he’d comprehended.
After a short moment, Su Li chose to attack first and seize the initiative.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
Sword images flew out both horizontally and vertically, and they were like shadows that swept towards Feng Tian Wu.
On the other side, the grade three spirit whip in Feng Tian Wu’s hand shook, then it coiled around her graceful and delicate body before starting to pulsate, and it once again formed the crimson red light barrier.
This crimson red light barrier was like an enormous fireball that protected Feng Tian Wu within it.
Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang!
The grade three spirit sword in Su Li’s hand struck out successively, and it descended like tiny stars in the sky onto the fireball on the surface of Feng Tian Wu’s body.
Every time the spirit sword descended, the enormous fireball would shrink slightly.
Of course, if one used one’s eyes to look at it, it would be extremely difficult to discern the changes in the fireball.
In the end, under the gazes of everyone present, the fireball moved to avoid to the distance.
Feng Tian Wu realized that she couldn’t continue being passive, otherwise, it would practically be a situation where she would lose for sure…
Even though a defensive martial skill was capable of solving one’s most urgent defensive needs, yet it was impossible for it to be utilized from the beginning until the end.
What she wanted to do during this ranking battle wasn’t to fight Su Li to a tie, it was instead to defeat Su Li. Only in this way would she be able to occupy this seventh position in the Dynasty Martial Competition this time.
Just like she’d said before, she was determined to obtain the seventh position!
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
Finally, Feng Tian Wu attacked, the grade three spirit whip in her hand flashed out to transform into dense whip imaged that tore through the sky as they swept out straight towards Su Li.
These whip images covered the heavens and the earth as they descended, and it was as if a storm was pouring.
“Flower Rain?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned when he saw this scene, and he couldn’t help but recall the scenes when he met Feng Tian Wu for the first time in Phoenix Nest City.
