Chapter 803: Cheat
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
“Hmph!” Zi Shang’s eyes flashed with a cold light as he stared at Duan Ling Tian, and then he muttered with a voice only he himself could hear. “Duan Ling Tian, be as complacent as you like… I can’t be bothered to argue with a person that’s about to die.”
“No matter what all of you encounter in the Illusory Crypt, all of you just have to stick to charging forward… Once you charge until the end and select a number token, you’ll be able to leave from the exit at the combat arena,” said Feng Wei.
When he saw the group of young geniuses had already taken their positions, Feng Wei shouted out abruptly. “Enter!!”
Feng Wei’s loud shout was like thunder that reverberated in their ears, and it pierced into the eardrums of all the young geniuses including Duan Ling Tian.
The 50 young geniuses shuddered before leaping successively into the crypt’s entrance.
After Duan Ling Tian entered the crypt’s entrance, he noticed that he’d entered into an underground passageway, and rough walls lay all around him.
After he entered, Duan Ling Tian didn’t hesitate to hurriedly mobilize his movement technique with his full strength and swiftly dashed forward.
Of course, at the same time he dashed out, he didn’t forget to stretch his Spiritual Force out and let it sweep out ahead.
Once anything was amiss ahead, he would notice it in the first possible moment.
Suddenly, the Spiritual Force Duan Ling Tian stretched out shook slightly.
“There’s something ahead!” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze concentrated abruptly as he looked ahead. Even though he realized that something was slightly amiss there, his speed didn’t reduce in the slightest, as he had to make every second count!
Duan Ling Tian who’s entered the Illusory Crypt was like an uncontrollable wild horse that only knew how to arrive at his destination yet entirely didn’t care about anything else.
“It’s wind!” After flashing forward for a while, Duan Ling Tian finally discovered what was welcoming him ahead, and it was piercingly cold and gale that almost filled the entire passageway as it assaulted him ceaselessly.
This piercingly cold gale was also accompanied by some material wind blades that contained an extremely terrifying offensive strength.
Duan Ling Tian didn’t dare hesitate when facing the wind that charged towards him, and the Origin Energy on his body skyrocketed before transforming into waves of piercingly cold and strong winds that coiled around his body.
Duan Ling Tian who was enveloped by the vast and strong wind wasn’t the slightest bit afraid of the piercingly cold gale and wind blades that assaulted him from ahead, and he charged head on while allowing the piercingly cold gale and wind blades to strike onto his body.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
In a short moment, the material Wind Concept in the surroundings of Duan Ling Tian’s body was suppressed by the gale and wind blades that assaulted him from ahead to the point of almost collapsing, whereas, his speed was forcefully pushed down to become slower.
Without the slightest hesitation, Duan Ling Tian’s fists were covered in strong winds before he swept them out ahead to collide with the gale and wind blades that assaulted him.
Instantly, the resistance Duan Ling Tian suffered was reduced.
“It works!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up, and with a raise of his hand, a sword that emitted a terrifying aura appeared within his hand.
Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword!
Since Duan Ling Tian could be sure that there wasn’t a second person here, whereas the gale and wind blades that assaulted him from ahead were constructed by Inscription Formation, so he entirely didn’t have to conceal anything.
For the sake of arriving at the end of the Illusory Crypt as soon as possible, he had to go all out!
With a raise of his hand, the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword was utilized by Duan Ling Tian like his own arm as if swiftly pierced out ahead.
Instantly, two Divine Dragons that were condensed into form from completely material Wind Concept whistled out, and their eyes shot out four extreme flashes that moved to greet the gale and wind blades.
Instantly, the gale and wind blades were suppressed, and it won over a chance for Duan Ling Tian to traverse it!
“Just a little bit more!” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze was resolute as he flashed out swiftly with the intention of charging through the last gust of gale and wind blades that were assaulting him from ahead.
His Spiritual Force that had spread out already told him that so long as he passed through this last gust of gale and wind blade, he would pass through the first barrier of this Illusory Crypt.
The Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand opened the way as his entire body combined flawlessly with the material Wind Concept to cause his entire body to seem to have transformed into a sword.
If someone was here and saw Duan Ling Tian’s current state, the person would surely notice to his shock that Duan Ling Tian had practically combined into one with the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in his hand.
The material Wind Concept that suffused his body and sword had practically formed into an enormous sword that caused Duan Ling Tian and the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword that was concealed within to only be faintly noticeable.
At this moment, the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword was like the tip of this enormous sword, whereas, Duan Ling Tian’s entire body was the blade of this enormous sword instead.
The enormous sword tore through the sky like a swift arrow shot out from a heavy bow.
At this moment, the gale and wind blade that assaulted from ahead were split apart by the tip of the enormous sword and were completely discharged to the sides, causing their obstruction to Duan Ling Tian to grow lesser and lesser.
“I’ve finally passed through!” In an instant, Duan Ling Tian had passed through the passageway where the gale and wind blades raged, and the Inscription Formation that condensed it was left far behind by him.
“Continue!” After he passed through the first Inscription Formation, Duan Ling Tian didn’t dare hesitate and continued forward.
After a short moment and after passing through a corner, Duan Ling Tian felt the scene before his eyes flash, and then there were actually balls of red colored scorching flames blazing before him, and it was like a sea of flames.
“First is was wind, now it’s fire, and both of them are Inscription Formations formed with Origin Stones and Concept Fragments!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flashed, and he didn’t hesitate in the slightest to continue traversing forward.
“These Inscription Formations ought to have not been left behind by Martial Monarchs, right?” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
If it was an Inscription Formation left behind by a Martial Monarch, then the Spiritual Force contained within it would be extremely formidable, and he would be utterly unable to affect it with his current Spiritual Force.
On the other hand, if it wasn’t left behind by a Martial Monarch, then he would most probably be able to affect it with his Spiritual Force and even temporarily turn it off.
After he approached the flames that were ahead of him, Duan Ling Tian felt a hot weave of air assault his face, and even the piercingly cold and strong winds that flashed about on the surface of his body was unable to obstruct this hotness, thus causing how formidable the flames were to be obvious.
Without the slightest hesitation, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force swept out to enter within the flames and continue spreading towards the walls around the passageway.
After a short moment, he noticed the fluctuation of the numerous Inscriptions that formed this Inscription formation.
“Looks like I was thinking too much… How could a Martial Monarch Stage expert help the Skywolf Fort construct these simple Inscription formations?” Duan Ling Tian had never forgotten that during the first round of the selection, the Illusory Purgatory was constructed from an Inscription Formation left behind by a Martial Monarch Stage expert.
This also caused Duan Ling Tian to subconsciously think that all the Inscription Formations in Skywolf Fort was constructed by a Martial Monarch.
The facts proved that he was overthinking things.
Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force passed through the Inscription Formation without encountering the slightest obstruction as an Inscription Formation like this was simply child’s play to him.
There were many types of methods to destroy simple and basic Inscription Formations like this within the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
Of course, Duan Ling Tian’s current Spiritual Force was incapable of destroying this Inscription Formation, because even though this Inscription Formation wasn’t constructed by a Martial Monarch Stage expert, it was still constructed by a Void Transformation Stage Inscription Master.
Duan Ling Tian was only capable of temporarily turning it off with his current Spiritual Force, and he was unable to destroy it.
“But, this is already enough.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart as the Spiritual Force that had fused into the Inscription Formation suddenly moved swiftly.
In the next moment, the flames that filled this area of the passageway vanished gradually.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian easily passed through the area enveloped by the Inscription Formation.
Along with Duan Ling Tian retracting his Spiritual Force, the area covered by the Inscription Formation behind him had once again arose with strands of scorching flames.
Duan Ling Tian continued to flash forward at full speed. He saw violet colored bolts of lightning occasionally striking down ahead, and it was precisely an Inscription Formation constructed from Origin Stones and Lightning Concept Fragments.
“As expected of a power in the Foreign Lands, this Skywolf Wolf is really extravagant! Up until now, there have already been three Concept Fragments that have appeared in my passageway… But unfortunately, my current Spiritual Force is limited and I’m rushing for time. Otherwise, I’d surely dig out all of these Concept Fragments!” Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force stretched out once more to fuse into the Inscription Formation that was constructed mainly of Origin Stones and a Lightning Concept Fragment before temporarily shutting it off.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian passed through this area that was swept by crackling bolts of violet colored bolts of lightning and continued flashing forward.
When Duan Ling Tian retracted his Spiritual Force, he was able to clearly hear a wave of ear piercing thunderclaps resounding behind him, and the thunderclaps grew further and further before quickly vanishing from the detection of his ears.
After forcefully traversing the wind area with brute force, and then easily passing through the area that contained fire and lightning, Duan Ling Tian quickly entered into the area of water.
This water that appeared from the Inscription Formation that was constructed from Origin Stones and a Water Concept Fragment wasn’t calm.
If it was calm water, then even if Duan Ling Tian didn’t possess his cultivation, he would still be able to easily swim past it.
But this water was ceaselessly pressing down and colliding within this area of the passageway, and once he entered into it, he would be extremely easy for him to lose control of his body and drift along with the waves.
“Charge!” However, all of this was nothing to Duan Ling Tian, as his Spiritual Force swept out and easily temporarily turned off the Inscription Formation that created this water.
The water vanished quickly, whereas, Duan Ling Tian passed through this area enveloped by the Inscription Formation.
Only after Duan Ling Tian withdrew his Spiritual Force did the sounds of a vast stream of water that was colliding ceaselessly appear once more, and it gradually became further and further away.
“Perhaps even the members of the Skywolf Fort have never imagined that I would be able to easily turn off the Inscription Formations in this Illusory Crypt… When the attainments of the Rebirth Martial Emperor in the Dao of Inscriptions are combined with my Spiritual Force, it’s simply an ever successful ‘cheat’ in this place!”
The word ‘cheat’ came from the earth of Duan Ling Tian’s previous life, and it was usually used towards players who broke the rules by controlling a game in an unfair manner.
“The next Inscription Formation is probably constructed from Origin Stones and an Earth Concept Fragment, right?” Duan Ling Tian guessed in his heart as he looked at the empty passageway ahead.
According to logical thinking, after the forces of nature of wind, fire, lightning, and water, it ought to be the energy of earth that was similarly a force of nature.
