“That’s right!” Huang Daniu looked very proud. “I managed to raise my Sixth Level Intermediate Earth Concept to the Ninth Level Intermediate Earth Concept in the Profound Assimilation Formation!”
As he said this, he looked at Duan Ling Tian again. His smile turned even prouder as he continued, “I’m better than Duan Ling Tian in this aspect! His Intermediate Thunder Concept was originally at the Seventh Level. Although he was elevated to the Ninth Level in the Profound Assimilation Formation, it was only elevated two levels!”
When Duan Ling Tian saw Huang Daniu bringing this matter up again to even the score with him, Duan Ling Tian merely shook his head. He was too lazy to bother with him.
“I heard that the Profound Assimilation Formation is not simple, but I never thought that it’s actually THIS powerful! To the extent that it could elevate your Void Interpretation Concept to the Ninth Level!” Chen Wei exclaimed in envy.
Then, he looked at Duan Ling Tian again before smiling wryly, “Duan Ling Tian, I always thought that you’ve only comprehended the Third Level Intermediate Wind Concept. To my surprise, you’ve actually comprehended another Seventh Level Thunder Concept!”
Previously, like most people, he thought Duan Ling Tian was so strong was because of his innate ability. If it was not for his innate ability, Duan Ling Tian would probably not be a part of the young and outstanding disciples in the Five Element Sect.
However, right now, he was deeply aware of how stupid and ridiculous his previous thoughts were.
“Duan Ling Tian really did conceal it well…” Huang Daniu looked at Duan Ling Tian. His eyes gleamed brightly as if he could see through everything. “Right now, even if he demonstrates a third Concept other than the Thunder and Wind Concept, I don’t think I’ll be surprised anymore.”
Upon hearing Huang Daniu’s words, the corner of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth unknowingly twitched a little. Although he knew that Huang Daniu simply blurted that out without putting much thought into it, his heart could not help but jolt upon hearing them.
He did indeed comprehend a third Void Interpretation Concept!
Not only did he have a third Void Interpretation Concept, he had even comprehended a fourth Void Interpretation Concept too. His Earth and Sword Concepts were both at the Void Interpretation Concept currently.
However, Chen Wei did not take Huang Daniu’s words seriously.
In his opinion, with Duan Ling Tian’s age, it was already shocking enough that he comprehended two strong Void Interpretation Concepts. It was impossible for him to comprehend a third Void Interpretation Concept even if he was a Variant.
“Your cultivation base…” Chen Wei quickly swept a glance at Huang Daniu before he looked at Duan Ling Tian. His face was filled with curiosity.
“The elevation of our cultivation bases is actually thanks to the spirit fruits that Peak Master gave us…. Those spirit fruits were the cultivation resources that the sect had given us,” Huang Daniu smiled.
Chen Wei suddenly understood. The envy on his face became more prominent, but there were no hints of jealousy at all. He knew very well that the two of them deserved whatever they obtained.
If it had not been for Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu, Wood Peak would never be able to get rid of the fate of being in the last place, let alone becoming the First Peak of the Five Element Sect.
If Wood Peak could not get rid of the destiny of being at the bottom, even if the sect had managed to obtain the spirit fruits, it would not be assigned to Wood Peak at all.
“Let’s go. The Peak Master’s waiting for us,” Chen Wei told the two of them before flying away to the distance.
Duan Ling Tian nodded his head. Together with Huang Daniu, they caught up to Chen Wei and flew away to the distance.
Very quickly, Duan Ling Tian met Qi Yu, the Peak Master of Wood Peak, again.
Behind Qi Yu stood three other Wood Peak young disciples that were about thirty-five years old. It was apparent that they would be going to the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure as well.
Duan Ling Tian stretched out his Spiritual Energy. In just a while, he found out the cultivation bases of the three other disciples. They were all at the Fourth Level Void Interpretation, just like how Chen Wei used to be. When Chen Wei had come to look for him earlier, he had noticed that Chen Wei’s cultivation base had now entered the Fifth Level Void Interpretation.
“You’re here?” Upon seeing Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu, Qi Yu who was usually calm let out an unusual smile.
“Peak Master,” Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu greeted Qi Yu with a smile before they proceeded to stand behind him.
At this time, the three Wood Peak disciples who were hovering in the air behind Qi Yu greeted the two of them politely, “Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian, Senior Brother Huang Daniu.” It flattered them a little. After all, these three Wood Peak disciples were actually much older than the two of them.
“Let’s go!” Qi Yu guided the six of them and flew out at once, all the way towards Gold Peak.
In just a while, they had already reached the sky outside of Gold Peak. There were already two groups of people gathered there, and they were standing across each other.
When they saw Duan Ling Tian and the other Wood Peak people, the two groups of people immediately looked over. They quickly fixed their gazes on two particular people from the Wood Peak group.
Duan Ling Tian and Qi Yu.
When Duan Ling Tian had first arrived at Wood Peak, he had defeated the direct disciple of a Wood Peak elder and even caused that elder to cripple his own cultivation base. Ever since then, Duan Ling Tian’s fame had already spread throughout the entire Five Element Sect.
Later, during the Battle of the Five Peaks, Duan Ling Tian became even more famous!
He defeated the Nangong Twins who were the strongest — prior to his own arrival to the Five Element Sect — in the Five Element Sect. He even obtained the first place for the individual and team battle in the Battle of the Five Peaks, and helped Wood Peak become the First Peak of Five Element Sect!
Presently, Duan Ling Tian’s reputation in the Five Element Sect could be compared to the mid-day sun. It even surpassed the Nangong Twins from Gold Peak.
Some of the Five Element Sect’s disciples even secretly considered Duan Ling Tian as the strongest powerhouse among the younger generation in the sect because he could overpower the Nangong Twins from Gold Peak.
Qi Yu, the Peak Master of Wood Peak, who had been quiet for so many years suddenly launched a lightning attack in the Battle of the Five Peaks, inflicting serious injuries on Cha Bai, the Peak Master of Fire Peak, twice.
At that moment, the Five Element Sect’s disciples who were present finally knew, that Qi Yu, the person who was known as the second strongest powerhouse in the Five Element Sect, did not get his nickname for no reason. He indeed possessed such a strength,
At that time, Qi Yu had also become the subject of discussion among the Five Element Sect’s disciples.
The two group of people were actually the members of Water and Earth Peak who had arrived earlier. Yu Fang and Tian Gu, the Peak Masters for Water and Earth Peak, came forward and greeted Qi Yu with a smile, “Peak Master Qi Yu.”
“Peak Master Yu Fang, Peak Master Tian Gu,” Qi Yu greeted them one by one with a courteous smile.
Duan Ling Tian who was standing at the side swept a glance across the members of Water and Earth Peaks one by one. He noticed that other than the two Peak Masters, Yu Fang, and Tian Gu, the two Peaks had a total of five disciples added up together
There was a total of three members from Water Peak. Other than Tan Huan and the other female disciple whom he had seen twice previously, there was another female disciple among them.
Earth Peak, on the other hand, only had two people, all of whom he was with. They were none other than Tian Zhen and the Earth Peak male disciple whom he had also seen twice previously.
The number of the two Peaks’ young disciples added up together did not even exceed the number of disciples — including Duan Ling Tian — that Wood Peak had.
Suddenly, a Wood Peak disciple exclaimed in a deep voice, “Fire Peak is here!”
The people present, apart from Duang Ling Tian and Qi Yu, immediately shifted their gazes to the five figures that were flying in their direction from the distance.
These five people were headed by one person. The person who took the lead was an old man who was dressed in red. He was none other than Cha Bai, the Peak Master of Fire Peak.
Behind Cha Bai were another four Fire Peak disciples. Among these four disciples, Hu Fei was leading them as they followed closely behind Cha Bai.
‘Since all of us are here, let us make our move!” Suddenly, before Yu Fang and Tian Gu could greet Cha Bai, a loud voice resonated from Gold Peak’s direction. It instantly attracted everyone’s attention.
Duan Ling Tian looked towards the voice and saw six figures making their way in the air from Gold Peak.
Among them was Guo Chong, the Peak Master of Gold Peak who was also the Sect Leader of the Five Element Sect, who was leading the group. Behind him were Nangong Chen and Nangong Yi who followed closely behind. One was full of energy while the other was calm and collected. Both had graceful bearings.
Behind the two of them were another three Gold Peak disciples. They were all young disciples who were around thirty-five years old. It was obvious that they were prepared to go to the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure too.
The moment Guo Chong made his appearance, the people from the other four Peaks showed their respect. Some nodded their heads while some bowed.
Most of them bowed down in salutation, with the exception of the four Peak Masters and Duan Ling Tian who merely nodded their heads.
Duan Ling Tian who was standing among the Five Element Sect’s disciples stood out like a sore thumb the moment all the other disciples bowed. If this was another person, Guo Chong would probably be slightly angered. However, when he discovered that the person was Duan Ling Tian, his temper died down immediately.
In his opinion, it could already be considered a blessing to the Five Element Sect for Duan Ling Tian, who was a Variant, to temporarily join the sect. As for all the other unnecessary and elaborate formalities, Duan Ling Tian had the qualifications to ignore them.
“Let’s go!” Guo Chong nodded his head towards the crowd and announced loudly.
The instance the words left his mouth, he led the five Gold Peak disciples and proceeded to fly towards the southwest direction. Due to the fact that he was watching out for the Gold Peak disciples, he deliberately slowed down his flying speed.
“Let’s go!” This time, Qi Yu, Yu Fang, Tian Gu and Cha Bai called out to their young disciples one by one and caught up with Gold Peak’s people. They followed closely behind like a shadow.
“That Martial Emperor’s secret treasure is in the southwest?” As they flew all the way to the southwest, Duan Ling Tian could not help but narrow his eyes as he murmured, “The direction is between the southern and western district of the northern desert, but it’s closer to the four major forces of the northern dessert’s southern district.”
Southern district of the northern desert, Ancient Desert City, Skywolf Fort.
Inside the fort, at an underground palace, five people stood before a high platform. They looked at the high platform before them that was shrouded in fog. The five people’s eyes were gleaming brightly.
“It’s going to be three hours soon,” the only middle-aged man among the five of them spoke in a low voice.
“The Profound Assimilation Formation is about to close, and the nine of them will come out soon.” The eyes of one of the old men among the group of five lit up at immediately. With an eager look, he stared at the high platform that was shrouded in fog as if he was waiting for something.
Time continued to pass quietly.
“What’s the matter?”
“It has already been four hours so why isn’t the Profound Assimilation Formation shutting off? This is a little illogical!”
“Has something happened to the Profound Assimilation Formation?”
The five people present at the scene stood gazing at one another. They were baffled and did not know what to do. Their faces were completely filled with bewilderment.
