Sure enough, a look of shock appeared on Qi Yu’s face instantly the moment he heard Duan Ling Tian’s Voice Transmission. “You… You’ve comprehended another Void Interpretation Concept as well?”
“Yes,” Duan Ling Tian nodded in reply.
In the next moment, Duan Ling Tian shifted his gaze from Qi Yu and looked over to Guo Chong, the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect, again
Guo Chong finally answered Nangong Yi’s question. “By right, you should’ve come out after being in the Profound Assimilation Formation for three hours. However, all of you have been there for a whole 60 hours this time. Let alone all of you, even we’re puzzled and confused by this as well,” he explained.
The instance the group of young talents heard his words, they were instantly struck dumb.
“However, there’s one thing that we can be sure of,” Guo Chong’s eyes swept across each and every one of the ten young talents, including Duan Ling Tian, before he continued unhurriedly, “There are only two possible reasons for the Profound Assimilation Formation to continue running for 60 hours… One, there’s something wrong with the Profound Assimilation Formation itself. Second, somebody has been absorbing the Concept Energy for the entire 60 hours.” When he reached the end of his sentence, his eyes glistened brightly.
Absorbing a whole 60 hours worth of Concept Energy?
When the words left Guo Chong’s mouth, the nine young talents, other than Duan Ling Tian, were gaping in astonishment.
If there was really somebody who had been absorbing the Concept Energy for such a long time, how high would the Concept that he had comprehended be raised up to then?
Other than Duan Ling Tian, the nine young talents, including Huang Daniu, were completely thunderstruck.
Perhaps he could see through most of the young talents’ thoughts, Guo Chong continued, “With the several hundreds of Concept Fragments that I put into the Profound Assimilation Formation earlier, if there really is somebody who had been absorbing the Concept Energy for a whole 60 hours, even if he has only comprehended the First Level Void Interpretation Concept before this, his Concept would be able to make a breakthrough to the Fourth Level Void Transformation Concept now that he’s out of the Profound Assimilation Formation.”
Fourth Level Void Transformation Concept! What kind of logic was that?
Among the group of young talents, the person who had comprehended the strongest Void Interpretation Concept was none other than the Nangong Twins from Gold Peak who had both comprehended the Eighth Level Void Interpretation Concept.
Eighth Level Void Interpretation Concept was equivalent to the strength of 90 ancient horned dragons.
Fourth Level Void Transformation Concept, on the other hand, was equivalent to the strength of 500 ancient horned dragons!
Although the Ninth Level Void Interpretation Concept and the First Level Void Transformation Concept was only a level apart, the gap between them was as wide as an abyss. The former had a strength that was equivalent to 100 ancient horned dragons while the latter had a strength that was equivalent to 200 ancient horned dragons.
Every time the Void Transformation Concept was raised up to another level, the strength would be raised up to another 100 ancient horned dragons.
“Who’s that?” At once, the ten young talents, other than Nangong Chen, were looking around at each other as if they were trying to figure out the one who had managed to absorb Concept Energy for such a long period of time.
Who exactly was that freak?
Seeing the group of young talents eyeing each other, Duan Ling Tian undoubtedly followed suit as he pretended to feign ignorance.
“Then again, it does not necessarily mean that somebody has been continuously absorbing the Concept Energy for such a long time. Perhaps, it was the Profound Assimilation Formation that went haywire,” Guo Chong added after he saw how the nine young talents were eyeing each other.
“Now, you must have more or less sense the changes in the Concept that you’ve comprehended. However, I’m sure you still can’t confirm the level that your Concept is actually at right now,” Guo Chong’s gaze was trained intensely on the ten young talents in front of him as he continued, “Now, I’m going to call you out one by one, and all of you will demonstrate the Concept that you’re comprehended. Show us the gains that you’ve obtained from the Profound Assimilation Formation this time.”
The moment Guo Chong’s words left his mouth, the other four Peak Masters’ eyes immediately lit up.
Especially Qi Yu, the Peak Master of Wood Peak, who cast a meaningful glance towards Duan Ling Tian. A deep meaningful smile crept up on his face at once as if it was telling Duan Ling Tian, ‘Kiddo, since you said that you’ve managed to comprehend two Void Interpretation Concepts, let me see what level the other Concept that you’ve comprehended is at.’
Duan Ling Tian had naturally noticed Qi Yu’s gaze and could also guess the thoughts that were in his mind as well. However, he did not seem to be bothered by it at all.
The reason why he said such words earlier was due to the faith that he had in himself. He believed that he would be able to mislead Qi Yu into thinking that he was not the person who had been absorbing the Concept Energy for 60 hours straight.
Although he had been absorbing the Concept Energy for 60 hours, it was not limited to one type of Concept only.
If he had been absorbing only one Concept for such a long period of time, then yes, just like what Guo Chong had assumed, his Concept would be elevated to the Fourth Level Void Transformation Concept or higher. However, when he was in the Profound Assimilation Formation earlier, he had absorbed four types of Concept Energy. He had spent thirty hours to fully absorb each of the Concept Energy.
Initially, he needed to use 120 hours to fully absorb four different Concept Energy. However, since he could separate his consciousness into two, he could comprehend two different Concept simultaneously, doubling the efficiency of the absorption.
Due to this reason, he only spent 60 hours to completely absorb the four Concept Energy. The four Concepts that he had comprehended also had great improvements.
“Hurmph!” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze landed on Hu Fei and he snorted secretly.
After Hu Fei had come out of the Profound Assimilation Formation, his brows had been furrowed together. Duan Ling Tian had long noticed this since a while back. As for the reason, well, it was easy enough for him to guess.
‘What’s the matter?’ Upon hearing Guo Chong announced that he wanted all of them to demonstrate their Concepts that had been elevated, Hu Fei hesitated slightly. This was because he could sense that the Concept that he had comprehended did not seem to have any improvement at all compared to before he went inside the Profound Assimilation Formation. Naturally, he could not confirm whether it had leveled up or not without demonstrating it.
‘According to Master, after I enter the Profound Assimilation Formation, even if I’m down on my luck, I’ll still be able to further enhance my Fire Concept and comprehend the Eighth Level Intermediate Fire Concept!’ Hu Fei started to ponder secretly, ‘It’s not even impossible for me to comprehend the Ninth Level Intermediate Fire Concept! After all, my Seventh Level Intermediate Fire Concept was just a step away from entering the Eighth Level Intermediate Fire Concept. Perhaps, my Fire Concept has already made its breakthrough, but since I just came out of the Profound Assimilation Formation, my senses are reacting a little slowly… Yeah, I think that should be the reason why.’
Hu Fei started to feel at ease as he thought about it this way. The brows that were furrowed together finally eased up.
From what he could see, even if he really was down on his luck, it would not be so terrible to the extent where he could not even raise a single level for his Fire Concept while he was inside the Profound Assimilation Formation. This was almost impossible.
However, it would never cross Hu Fei’s mind —not even in his dreams — that Duan Ling Tian’s existence could turn many of his ‘impossibles’ into ‘possibles’.
‘Don’t tell me this Hu Fei still did not discover anything?’ When Duan Ling Tian saw the relief expression on Hu Fei’s face, he could not help but be taken aback. ‘Is his response really that slow?’
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian’s attention was snatched back by Guo Chong’s voice, “Let’s start with you.”
He saw Guo Chong was looking at the male disciple from Earth Peak and motioned him to demonstrate the Concept that he had managed to break through in the Profound Assimilation Formation.
Apart from Tian Zhen, this male disciple was another one of Earth Peak’s young disciple.
Upon hearing Guo Chong’s words, this Earth Peak disciple dared not slack and immediately responded respectfully, “Yes, Sect Leader.”
The male disciple instantly scrunched his face up, and his body emanated a gust of tyrannical aura that soared up to the sky as if it was about to tear everything in the air apart.
Everybody present could instantly see that a layer of solidified translucent aura had suddenly appeared on the surface of the Earth disciple’s skin — that was a solidified Saber Qi.
The Saber Qi enveloped the Earth Peak disciple entirely and transformed into a gigantic sword that was about to soar up to the sky.
“Saber Concept!” Everybody present on the scene could immediately see the Concept that the Earth Peak disciple had demonstrated.
At the same time, the Heaven and Earth Energy in the sky suddenly whirled and waves of vast Heaven and Earth Energy solidified together swiftly and formed the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon.
Silhouettes of ancient horned dragons began to appear.
There was a total of 70 of them.
“70 ancient horned dragons… the Sixth Level Intermediate Saber Concept!” Tian Gu’s eyes lit up as he exclaimed in astonishment, “Good job, lad! I remember you were only at the Fourth Level Intermediate Saber Concept before you entered the Profound Assimilation Formation! With the help of the Profound Assimilation Formation, you’ve managed to raise two levels at once and actually comprehended the Sixth Level Intermediate Saber Concept!”
“Hehe!” The Earth peak disciple chuckled before turning towards Tian Zhen by the side and said politely, “I’m sure Senior Brother Tian Zhen’s must be much stronger than mine!”
“You little brat, are you trying to invite trouble for me?” Tian Zhen scolded jokingly, “Originally, mine was at the Fifth Level Void Interpretation Concept, but now that you’ve said it like this, what if I didn’t make a breakthrough to the Seventh Level Void Interpretation Concept when I demonstrate my Concept later? You’d take the spotlight away from me, wouldn’t you?”
“Senior Brother Tian Zhen, I’m sure you’ve already comprehended the Seventh Level Void Interpretation Concept!” The Earth Peak disciple quickly added.
Upon hearing their conversation, even the five Peak Masters could not help but chuckle a little.
Guo Chong smiled as he looked towards Tian Zhen and said, “Tian Zhen, I really would like to see whether he has taken away your spotlight or not! You go demonstrate the Concept that you’ve comprehended too.”
“Yes, Sect Leader,” Tian Zhen replied. Then, his solemn face began to turn a little nervous.
Although he could clearly sense that his Concept had a major transformation compared to before he entered the Profound Assimilation Formation, and he was sure that his Concept did indeed have a breakthrough, he had no idea exactly how high his level was raised up to.
It was only by fully demonstrating his Concept and stirring up the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon that he could be sure of the Concept level that he had comprehended.
“Ten days before, the Concept that Tian Zhen demonstrated in the Battle of the Five Peaks was at the Fifth Level Intermediate Wind Concept,” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes immediately fell on Tian Zhen.
The rest of the people were the same as well.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
As the sound of the wind whistling soared up to the sky, gusts of green hurricanes fluttered around Tian Zhen like wind dragons that entwined his entire body.
