Chapter 901: The First Peak of the Five Element Sect
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“I can’t believe that we have such a terrifying Inscription Formation in our Five Element Sect!”
“At first I thought that having the Concept Fragments would already make the Concept comprehension speed fast enough… However, looks like this speed is nothing compared to being in the Profound Assimilation Formation.”
“It’s crazy! It’s too crazy! Why are there so many abnormal Inscription Formation in the Cloud Continent?!”
“However, although this Profound Assimilation Formation is powerful, it’s not something that anybody could easily use. After all, you need to at least use up hundreds of Concept Fragments every time it’s activated!”
“Although I’ve been in the Five Element Sect for so many years, it’s no wonder that I’ve never heard of this Profound Assimilation Formation before. I think the cost of consumption would be kind of unbearable for our Five Element Sect!”
“The Profound Assimilation Formation will be activated after ten days… Looks like the sect is going all out this time.”
“The ten young disciples who can enter the formation are indeed very blessed!”
After the group of Five Element Sect’s disciples found out about the functions of the Profound Assimilation Formation, they went crazy over it.
Looks of envy immediately shot out of their eyes and landed on Duan Ling Tian, Nangong Chen, Nangong Yi, and the few others.
They knew very well that the ten young disciples who had demonstrated outstanding strength today would have a brand new transformation in the Concepts that they had comprehended and might soar up to the top ten days later!
“Ten days later, the Profound Assimilation Formation, huh? I can’t wait to see that!” Tian Zhen, the son of the Peak Master of Earth Peak, had also walked out from the shadow of defeat with his eyes shining brightly.
“This time, my target is the Seventh Level Intermediate Water Concept!” The eyes of Tan Huan, the direct disciple of the Peak Master of Water Peak, also lit up immediately. Strong confidence could be seen in both of her eyes.
Although her cultivation base had currently reached the Sixth Level Void Interpretation, in terms of her Concept comprehension level, it was only at the Fifth Level Intermediate Water Concept.
“The Profound Assimilation Formation… Ten days later, I must comprehend the Ninth Level Intermediate Fire Concept! I can no longer allow the Nangong Twins to keep pressing on my head!” Hu Fei, the direct disciple of the Peak Master of Fire Peak, had a cold look on his face. A cold sneer was lingering on the corner of his mouth.
“And that Duan Ling Tian! I’ll make sure he suffers from the utter misery that he wishes he’s a dead man one day!” With this thought in his mind, Hu Fei swept a cold glance at Duan Ling Tian again.
Although they were a huge distance apart, Duan Ling Tian could still sense Hu Fei’s cold eyes on him. He could feel a chilly air running down his back. It was icy and frosty.
“Hu Fei… I’ll give you a surprise ten days later.” A hint of an inconspicuous smirk was playing by the corner of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth.
At this moment, he seemed to have become the master who had Hu Fei’s fate in his hands.
Ten days later in the Profound Assimilation Formation, Duan Ling Tian indeed would have the ability to become the master who determined their fates. After all, that Profound Assimilation Formation was created by the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
He was no different from the true Rebirth Martial Emperor since he had the memories of the two reincarnations of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
When the Five Element Sect’s senior officials and disciples present on the scene finally dispersed, all they could talk about was the Profound Assimilation Formation.
As for the Battle of the Five Peaks, it had already been temporarily forgotten.
After all, the Profound Assimilation Formation was just too terrifying.
Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu left the scene and returned to Wood Peak along with Qi Yu, Yang Ling, Ke Zheng, and Chen Wei.
On the way back, Chen Wei sighed, “I’ve been in the five Element Sect for almost 20 years, and this is my first time hearing about that Profound Assimilation Formation… Duan Ling Tian, Daniu, the both of you must work hard once you’ve gotten inside it, okay?”
“Don’t worry.” Daniu grinned. “This time, I’ll surely comprehend the Eight Level Intermediate Earth Concept. Who knows, maybe my character will have a sudden boost, and I’ll be able to comprehend the Ninth Level Intermediate Earth Concept immediately!”
“The Ninth Level Intermediate Earth Concept?” The moment they heard Huang Daniu’s words, even Qi Yu the Peak Master of Wood Peak could not stop the smile that crept up on his mouth. They felt that Huang Daniu’s ambition was just too huge.
Duan Ling Tian could not help but laugh wryly as well.
Did this Daniu really think that the Profound Assimilation Formation of the Five Element Sect to be that crazy?
According to Duan Ling Tian’s estimation, after ten days when the Five Element Sect activated the Profound Assimilation Formation, the Concept Fragments that would be placed inside had to be some low-grade Fragments.
If a martial artist used these Concept Fragments on its own, he would be able to comprehend the Concept over a long time, and the elevation would probably be huge.
However, when they were placed in the Profound Assimilation Formation, they would be used up very quickly. Just one Fragment would not have much effect on a martial artist. It mainly relied on the quantity of the Fragment instead.
This was also the disadvantage of the Profound Assimilation Formation. It used up too much Concept Fragments.
‘Only if several hundreds of pieces of Seventh Level Concept Fragments are placed inside would the effect be completely different. Anyhow, even if the Five Element Sect only puts in some low-grade Concept Fragments into the Profound Assimilation Formation, I still want to use this to help elevate my four Concepts rapidly so that my strength will be upgraded to a higher level!’ Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed brightly as he made up his mind.
He was absolutely confident in this.
‘With my current Spiritual Energy, although I dare not say that I’ll be able to fully steal over the control of the Profound Assimilation Formation, at the very least I can still tamper with that formation,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
If Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts were heard by the senior officials of the Five Element Sect, they would most likely be shocked to the core.
In fact, the Profound Assimilation Formation in the Five Element Sect’s Gold Peak was actually arranged by a Martial Monarch Stage Inscription Master who was hired by the Five Element Sect many years ago with a huge amount of money.
However, right now, Duan Ling Tian who had yet to step into the Void Transformation was thinking about tampering with the Formation. If that Martial Monarch powerhouse found out about this, he would most probably be so worked up that he would throw up blood in agitation!
After they returned to Wood Peak, Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu went their separate ways from Qi Yu and the rest before going back to the three-story pavilion where they currently lived.
“Big Brother Duan! Big Guy!”
The moment Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu approached to the pavilion, they immediately heard a familiar voice.
On the balcony of the second floor of the pavilion, a young girl was waving her hand at them with a bright smile on her face. It was Ye Xuan who had come together with them to the Five Element Sect a while ago.
“Little Xuan,” Duan Ling Tian greeted Ye Xuan with a smile after he and Huang Daniu walked up to the balcony on the pavilion’s second floor.
“Hehe, Lassie Xuan, you’re a little frustrated not being able to go watch the Battle of the Five Peaks with your own eyes, huh?” Huang Daniu grinned. “It’s a pity that you couldn’t see your Brother Niu’s, ahem, MY super elegant demeanor. What a pity…”
“Hurmph! Who wants to look at you?!” Ye Xuan scrunched up her nose and snorted.
Then, her gaze instantly landed on Duan Ling Tian as her eyes shone brightly, “Big Brother Duan, how’re the results?”
“Not bad.” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
“Not bad?” Ye Xuan was stunned, she was obviously confused.
“Lassie Xuan, with Duan Ling Tian and I making our appearance personally, do you really need to ask about the results? If we couldn’t let the Wood Peak be the First Peak of the Five Element Sect, we would be too embarrassed to come back, okay?” Huang Daniu laughed loudly.
“That’s a bluff!” Ye Xuan had a stop-lying-to-me look on her face she continued, “Don’t think I don’t know that in the past of the Five Element Sect, the four Peaks, Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth, had never once been able to defeat Gold Peak in the Battle of the Five Peaks to become the First Peak in the Five Element Sect!”
“Well, there you go. You just said it yourself. That was THE PAST of the Five Element Sect… What if I tell you that today, the history of the Five Element Sect has been rewritten?” Huang Daniu continued to laugh.
“Rewritten?” Ye Xuan was taken aback. She could slightly sense that it did not seem like Huang Daniu was playing a joke on her.
However, she still refused to believe him. Instead, she turned towards Duan Ling Tian who was by the side, because in her heart, Duan Ling Tian was the only person that could convince her completely. She believed him unconditionally.
“What Daniu said is true.” When Duan Ling Tian saw Ye Xuan turning over to look at him, he smiled and nodded. “Little Xuan, from today onwards, the Wood Peak that we’re in is already the First Peak of the Five Element Sect for the next three years.”
The First Peak of the Five Element Sect?
Naturally, Ye Xuan believed Duan Ling Tian. However, she was still stunned.
Although it had only been a short while since she joined the Wood Peak of Five Element Sect, she still knew very well what the First Peak of the Five Element Sect actually meant, and what it actually signified.
From today onwards, Wood Peak would replace Gold Peak and become the First Peak of the Five Element Sect for the next three years?
Not only that, all of this was actually all thanks to the two people standing before her?
She could not suppress the excitement in her heart at all.
“Big Brother Duan, please tell me in details about what happened at the Battle of the Five Peaks today…” In actual fact, Ye Xuan felt very regretful that she was unable to witness the Battle of the Five Peaks with her own eyes. It was unfortunate, but there was nothing she could do about it. After all, she had yet to enter the Void Prying Stage and was not able to hover in the air yet.
“Let Daniu tell you instead.” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
“Big Guy, hurry!” Yue Xuan turned towards Huang Daniu and scowled.
“Excuse me, lassie! You call Duan Ling Tian ‘Big Brother Duan’ but you call me ‘Big Guy’? Don’t you think that’s a little impolite?” Huang Daniu narrowed his eyes, but the smile on his face still remained as he asked slowly.
“If you still refuse to tell me the story, I’m going to set fire to your room down when you’re cultivating next time!” When Ye Xuan saw how Huang Daniu was trying to take advantage of the situation to make a request, she glared and threatened him immediately.
When he realized that he was being threatened, the smile on Huang Daniu’s face froze before disappearing completely.
He really feared that Ye Xuan would do such thing when he was in the midst of cultivating. Putting aside the fact that he did not have the heart to do anything to that naughty and mischievous Ye Xuan, Duan Ling Tian would never agree to it even if he really did have the intention to do something to her.
“Fine, you’re the boss,” Huang Daniu shook his head and then roughly told her about the story of the Battle of the Five Peaks today. He started the story by excitedly telling her how valiant he was, “… Lassie Xuan, you didn’t see it at that time! I sent Hu Fei flying with just one punch you know!”
“Yeah, yeah, you’re the best!” Ye Xuan snorted, “But you’re still no match for the Nangong Twins from Gold Peak… Looks like the reason Wood Peak became the First Peak of the Five Element Sect for the next three years is all thanks to my Big Brother Duan! It has nothing to do with you at all!”
“Lassie Xuan, you can’t say like that! Even if Duan Ling Tian did not make an appearance, our Wood Peak could still become the Second Peak of the Five Element Sect for the next three years!” When Huang Daniu saw how Ye Xuan dismissed his hard work with only one sentence, he immediately turned anxious.
“See! You said so yourself, SECOND! Can second be compared to being the first?” Ye Xuan continued to say as a matter of course, “Not only that, with Big Brother Duan’s innate ability, even if you weren’t in the team battle, Wood Peak can still obtain the first place right?”
