Chapter 713: Without The Slightest Ability To Resist
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Fortunately, when Zi Shang’s fist smashed at him, Duan Ling Tian, slightly eased up his grip on his spirit sword, otherwise, his entire arm would possibly be crippled.
A grade three spirit sword was capable of saying intact under Zi Shang’s strength, but his arm wasn’t.
Even if he possessed an extraordinary cultivation, his body was a body of flesh and blood, and he was utterly unable to compare to a spirit weapon.
From the moment Duan Ling Tian struck out with his sword and was injured by Zi Shang, only an instant had passed, and the phenomenon of heaven and earth was slowly condensing into form in the sky as well.
The thirty plus ancient horned dragon silhouettes weren’t able to completely condense info form when Duan Ling Tian had already executed his movement technique, Whirlwind, to retreat towards the distance in a sorry state.
Even though he stopped the blood flowing from his palm with his Origin Energy, he still felt his entire arm become numb, causing him to be unable to use the slightest bit of strength.
“Fourth level of the Void Interpretation Stage!” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but gasp as he looked at Zi Shang who had a dull gaze and seemed like a puppet.
Earlier, when Zi Shang attacked Bai Hao, he’d suspected that Zi Shang’s strength was at the fourth level of the Void Interpretation Stage or above.
Now, after he’d felt it himself, he’d completely confirmed that even though Zi Shang’s fist that shot over like a cannonball only contained Origin Energy, the strength of the Origin Energy was comparable to a fourth level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist.
While disregarding spirit weapons and Concept, a fourth level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist possessed the strength of 60 ancient horned dragons solely from Origin Energy.
Such strength was almost double Duan Ling Tian’s full strength.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian felt a wave of powerlessness in his heart.
“Hahahaha…” At this moment, within the depths of Zi Shang’s mind, exceedingly arrogant laughter sounded out abruptly yet didn’t leave his mouth.
If Duan Ling Tian heard this laughter, he would surely be able to discern that this laughter belonged to Zi Shang.
Even though Zi Shang didn’t have any control over his body now, he was still capable of seeing everything in the outside world.
“Elder Ghost, even if you can’t kill him, I hope that you can heavily injure him… I want to step on his head and relentlessly humiliate him, so that he’ll know the gap between the two of us!” Zi Shang’s voice continued to resound out, and it was filled with ruthlessness.
“Are you ordering me around?” The aged and ghastly voice grunted coldly and was extremely displeased.
“No… I’m requesting it of Elder Ghost.” Zi Shang was instantly in panic.
Even though the old man’s incomplete soul was unable to occupy his body, the old man was instead capable of directly causing him to become a ‘retard’ by way of inflicting self harm, and that wasn’t something he was willing to see.
Moreover, to a certain extent, the old man’s existence could be considered to be his trump card.
This trump card had an extremely great use.
Just like now, with his ninth level Void Initiation Stage Spiritual Force, he would be utterly unable to resist when facing Duan Ling Tian’s soul skill.
But because of the existence of the old man’s incomplete soul, not only had it allowed him to escape calamity, it also allowed him to wantonly crush Duan Ling Tian.
Even though his body wasn’t controlled by him right now, he still felt extremely satisfied, and it was as if the person that crushed Duan Ling Tian in all aspects wasn’t Elder Ghost, but himself.
“After his strength rose to the fourth level of the Void Initiation Stage, his Spiritual Force has risen along with it, and my soul skill is utterly unable to affect him the slightest… With my soul skill being useless, it will also mean that it’s extremely unlikely for me to defeat him.” Duan Ling Tian stared at Zi Shang who possessed a pair of listless eyes from afar, and he had a fearful expression.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian naturally didn’t know that the person controlling Zi Shang’s body wasn’t Zi Shang any longer, and it was instead another extremely terrifying existence.
Merely an incomplete soul was capable of allowing Zi Shang’s Origin Energy and Spiritual Force that was at the ninth level of the Void Initiation Stage to directly rise to the fourth level of the Void Interpretation Stage.
The eyes of Duan Ling Tian who refused to believe his soul skill was useless flickered with a dim light, and he once again executed his soul skill.
But unfortunately, his Spiritual Force had only just constructed a completely new illusory space when it was directly shattered at the instant it came into contact with Zi Shang.
“Duan Ling Tian’s secret technique seems to be useless towards Zi Shang!” A Void Interpretation Stage Inscription Master that had his Spiritual Force extended out since the beginning couldn’t help but exclaim with surprise.
Even though he didn’t know what exactly Duan Ling Tian’s secret technique was.
But his Spiritual Force was capable of noticing that when Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force approached Zi Shang, it would be directly blaster to dispersal, causing Duan Ling Tian to be utterly incapable of executing his secret technique.
Duan Ling Tian’s secret technique is useless against Zi Shang?
The words of this Inscription Master quickly spread out.
At the beginning, most of the people only possessed little knowledge of what was going on.
In the end, everyone came to a sudden understanding through the explanation of the other Inscription Masters, and they knew that the secret technique Duan Ling Tian executed was closely related to Spiritual Force.
“I never imagined that Duan Ling Tian is capable of extending out his Spiritual Force… Looks like he’s also an Inscription Master.”
“Such a monstrous genius in the Martial Dao is actually an Inscription Master as well, his natural talent is truly shocking.”
“Duan Ling Tian’s secret technique is useless, yet Zi Shang’s secret technique isn’t… Looks like this battle is without suspense and Zi Shang will surely win!”
The entire Cage Battle Arena was filled with similar discussions, and more than 90% of the people felt that Duan Ling Tian would lose for sure.
“Brother Ling Tian is in trouble this time.” Elder Kong took a deep breath, and his eyes contained slight fear.
“Big Brother Duan!” Feng Tian Wu had a worried expression.
Only Feng Wu Dao looked at the scene before him with a calm expression, and he seemed as if it was unrelated to him and didn’t have the slightest intention of making a move to help Duan Ling Tian.
“Duan Ling Tian, if you’re really unable to go against him, then admit defeat… There’s no need to persist. The result of second place in the Dynasty Martial Competition is already not bad.” Everyone from the Darkstone Empire sent Duan Ling Tian similar voice transmissions.
“Congratulations Imperial Uncle, you’ve taken a matchless disciple.” The Emperor congratulated the old man by his side.
“This is the fortune of our Darkhan Dynasty.” The old man tried his best to maintain a calm expression, yet his excited gaze had shapelessly betrayed him.
“You’re right. With Zi Shang’s strength, it isn’t difficult for him to stand out in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties. It’s even to the extent that by relying on his ‘secret technique,’ it’s very likely that he can charge into first place in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties!” When they Emperor spoke up to here, he had an expression filled with excitement.
First place in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties?
What an honor!
The young expert that obtained this honor would also be the number one young expert in the all the ten Dynasties, including the Darkhan Dynasty, and the young expert’s name would spread throughout the ten Dynasties and go down in history.
When he thought of how his personal disciple had the chance of obtaining such an honor, the excitement in the black clothed old man’s eyes grew.
If his disciple really obtained the first in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties, then he who was the Master would surely become well known in the ten Dynasties and be well known by the later generations.
One lived for a single lifetime, thus it should be lived grandly and spectacularly!
If he was capable of leaving behind some traces in this world, then even if he died of old age or even transformed into a patch of soul, he wouldn’t have any regrets.
“Big brother.” Zi Yan’s beautiful face was filled adoration as she looked at Zi Shang, and her delicate fists were clenched tightly from excitement.
“Why? Why don’t I have a secret technique like this to rely on?” The Darkhan Dynasty’s Second Prince, Bai He, that sat by Zi Yan’s side stared at Zi Shang with an expressionless face, yet the depths of his eyes contained boundless envy mixed within.
If the people who were comparatively composed in the first-class spectating area that belonged to the Imperial Family was noted, then it would only be Bai Hao.
Even though he’d lost successively at the hands of Duan Ling Tian and Zi Shang, Bai Hao wasn’t dejected in the slightest, and he was instead filled with battle intent.
He was a person that became stronger as he encountered stronger opponents, and after wandering about the various Dynasties during these past few years, he’d become indifferent towards victory and defeat.
Otherwise, it would be impossible for him to possess such a shocking cultivation at his age.
Zi Shang once again transformed into a white colored bolt of lightning that arrived before Duan Ling Tian in a short moment.
He smashed out with another punch, and his skyrocketing Origin Energy seemed to have transformed into a dazzling and beautiful flame that carried a wave of ceaseless explosions as it swept towards Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian was utterly unable to dodge in time, and he could only swing out his sword once again while his Origin Energy skyrocketed beneath his feet, causing the sounds of wind and lightning to explode out as he fled hurriedly.
This time, Zi Shang’s bare fist was like a shooting star that directly blasted the grade three spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand flying.
The palm of Duan Ling Tian’s hand that held the spirit sword was split open once again, and injury inflicted upon injury caused his entire palm to be dripping with blood.
“Could it be that I really have to admit defeat?” At this moment, Duan Ling Tian felt a wave of powerlessness in his heart.
The present Zi Shang was utterly not someone he could deal with, and he’d used all his ability earlier yet was unable to obtain the slightest advantage.
A strength comparable to a fourth level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist was too terrifying.
Attacking with the strength of 60 ancient horned dragons was earth-shattering!
He didn’t have the slightest ability to resist.
“Admit defeat.” Right when Zi Shang moved once more and transformed into a bolt of lightning that flashed towards Duan Ling Tian, a clear voice transmission entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
Duan Ling Tian was able to discern that this was Feng Wu Dao’s voice.
Duan Ling Tian sighed in his heart, and he opened his mouth with the intention of admitting defeat.
Yet right at this moment, the Spatial Ring that trembled ceaselessly on Duan Ling Tian’s finger caused him to be unable to refrain from being hesitant. “Exactly what’s going on with the Devilseal Tablet? Why is it restless after the small black dot appeared between Zi Shang’s brows?”
At this moment, the Devilseal Tablet in his Spatial Ring gave Duan Ling Tian the feeling like a hunter that noticed its prey and impatiently wanted to hunt it.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian had a certain level of understanding towards the pattern of the Devilseal Tablet’s restlessness.
After the small black dot became a black colored flame brand, the Devilseal Tablet became even more restless, and when Zi Shang attacked him now, the Devilseal Tablet seemed as if it was in a frenzy and wildly knocked all around the space within his Spatial Ring.
“It wants to come out so badly?” In an instant, a mad thought arose within Duan Ling Tian’s heart. “I wonder what terrifying thing will happen if I take out the Devilseal Tablet…?”
Duan Ling Tian had obtained the Devilseal Tablet all those years ago at the Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Swamp of Death.
He still remembered that the place he obtained the Devilseal Tablet was an underground palace.
At that time, he almost had his body seized away by a strand of a soul that was sealed within the Devilseal Tablet.
Fortunately, his soul was comparatively unique and didn’t belong to this world, and it was because of this that he escaped calamity.
