Chapter 949: Emperor Stage Profundity
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Since this Martial Emperor’s secret treasure might have other entrances, these entrances would definitely be found by other people too.
Once they were found, the news would surely spread out.
At that time, other sects that were near the entrances would definitely send in their young disciples below forty years of age here to search for treasures in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure as well.
Even a second-rate force would be tempted by the treasures inside the Martial Emperor’s secret treasures. The second-rate force was ranked higher than their third-rate force. Moreover, they also had a Martial Emperor guarding their force.
These kinds of sects would have no shortage of young disciples that possessed insane innate ability and bizarre comprehension level. Apart from that, these young disciples would certainly possess an overall strength that was greater than theirs.
After all, they were only the disciples of third-rate forces.
Not mentioning the fact that, this time, even if it was not the young disciples from second-rate forces but other third-rate forces who entered the other entrances instead, they would also feel a great pressure because this meant that they would have to share the goodies with a larger group of people.
The young disciples from the second-rate forces were generally more powerful than them. For this reason, they would have to face the fact that they might be beaten since they could not fight nor win against them. It would eventually cause them to go home empty-handed.
On top of that, there was also a possibility that they might not even be able to go home empty-handed. Who knew if among the young disciples from the second-rate forces there might be some ruthless ones who would just kill them off indiscriminately the moment they laid their eyes on them.
The moment they thought of these, many of the disciples from each sect were immediately burdened with a great pressure.
A Five Element Sect’s disciple took a deep breath before he remarked, “Perhaps, among all of us Five Element Sect’s disciples, only Duan Ling Tian has fear against the young disciples from the second-rate forces! Even Senior Brothers Chen, Yi, and Daniu would most likely be at a great disadvantage if they come across the outstanding young disciples from the second-rate forces.” There was a horrified look on his face as his gaze landed on Duan Ling Tian before sweeping across Nangong Chen, Nangong Yi, and Huang Daniu.
The other Five Element Sect’s disciples agreed with the comment from this Five Element Sect’s disciple as well.
After all, they did witness Duan Ling Tian’s power before. They believed that even the outstanding ones among the second-rate young disciples might not necessarily be a match for their Senior Brother Ling Tian.
Very soon, some of the disciples from the Five Element Sect had their gazes locked on Duan Ling Tian as they announced resolutely, “What are you scared of?! I’ve decided anyway that this time for this Martial Emperor’s secret treasure’s trip, I’ll follow Senior Brother Ling Tian… With him here, even if I can’t get my hands on a lot of treasure, I can at least assure that my life is protected!”
“I also want to follow Duan Ling Tian. Although the treasures in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure are good, it’s still not as important as my own life!”
“Of course! I would only feel a slight pang of regret if I lose the treasure, but if I lose my life, everything will be gone instantly!”
“My life is more important than anything else! I’ve decided that I’ll be by Senior Brother Ling Tian’s side as well.”
The Five Element Sect’s disciples were in a heated discussion. At the same time, they were staring intensely at the purple-clad young man, Duan Ling Tian, who was standing nearby.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian was standing there looking around at his surroundings as though he was observing something.
All the same, other than the two remaining Sun Moon Sect’s disciples, the group of Blade Sect’s disciples began to shift closer to Feng Tian Wu, wanting to seek shelter from her.
One by one, the Empyrean Temple’s disciples were also beginning to stick closely to Xuan Bei, the strongest person among the Empyrean Temple’s young disciples.
There were only eight people left in the Emotion Severing Sect currently. Zhang Yan stood there with a calm look on his face. The fact that there were other entrances in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure failed to elicit any emotion from his heart at all.
Qi Feng, Qin Hao, and the other five Emotion Severing Sect’s disciples were following closely beside him. Zhang Yan was not afraid, but it did not mean that they were not afraid as well.
“Big Brother Duan,” Seeing the frown on Duan Ling Tian’s face, Feng Tian Wu who stood by the side, immediately had a look of doubt on her face. She could faintly feel that her Big Brother Duan had discovered something.
Huang Daniu, Su Li, and Zhang Shou Yong who were standing not far away also immediately noticed that something was amiss.
“Duan Ling Tian, what’s wrong?” Huang Daniu asked loudly. There was a slight bit of anxiety in his tone.
Like a thunder, Huang Daniu’s voice immediately attracted the attention of the other disciples from various sects as their gazes shifted to him immediately.
The frown on Duan Ling Tian’s face eased as he announced slowly, “I’m afraid it looks like we’ll have to go our separate ways eventually.”
“Huh?” Upon hearing his words, everyone became puzzled and completely at loss.
At this moment, the hoary and ancient voice continued to announce, “The lads who entered from Entrance No. 2, once you’ve entered the surrounding dark fog, you’ll be able to enter the real Martial Emperor’s secret treasure in no time! There are many treasures that I’ve accumulated throughout my life in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure. Out of all of them, the most precious ones were none other than the five Monarch Stage Profundity Fragments! Other than that, there’s a palace in the center of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure that I left behind. That is the place where my life ended. The wealth that I’ve accumulated throughout my life has been scattered throughout the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure, and if you want to get them, you’ll have to search for them on your own. The things that you can obtain from the place where my life ended are the two Monarch Stage Profundity Fragments and one Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment.”
The hoary and ancient voice came to an abrupt end.
All of a sudden, the young disciples from all the major sects, including Duan Ling Tian, stood there dumbfounded. Their eyes were completely stunned as glimpses of light flashed within.
“E-Eight Profundity Fragments? Did I hear correctly?” Huang Daniu murmured and gasped in disbelief.
Zhang Shou Yong shook his head as he replied in bewilderment, “You did! It’s indeed eight Profundity Fragments! Seven Monarch Stage Profundity Fragments and one Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment.” Right now, he appeared to be beside himself. His mind had long gone off to somewhere else.
“Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment? What is that?” Scowling, Feng Tian Wu’s face was filled with puzzlement.
Upon hearing Feng Tian Wu’s question, Duan Ling Tian ransacked the memory of the Rebirth Martial Emperor before he replied, “The Profundity that a Martial Emperor possessed is usually the Emperor Stage Profundity. If a Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage powerhouse wants to make a breakthrough to the Martial Emperor Stage, he would have to first comprehend the Emperor Stage Profundity. The Emperor Stage Profundity is the permit for a Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage powerhouse to enter the Martial Emperor Stage.”
The significance of the Emperor Stage Profundity to a Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage powerhouse was similar to the significance of the Void Transformation Stage to a Ninth Level Void Interpretation powerhouse or the Monarch Stage Profundity to a Ninth Level Void Transformation powerhouse.
If one did not comprehend it, one would not be able to make a breakthrough to the next stage!
“If we say that a Ninth Level Void Transformation powerhouse would never be able to make a breakthrough to the Martial Monarch Stage and become a Martial Monarch Stage powerhouse without the Monarch Stage Profundity, then a Ninth Level Monarch Stage powerhouse would also never be able to make a breakthrough to the Martial Emperor Stage and become a Martial Emperor Stage powerhouse if he’s without the Emperor Stage Profundity,” Duan Ling Tian explained word by word.
All of this information undoubtedly came from Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory.
The instance these words left Duan Ling Tian’s mouth, the crowds burst into an uproar of commotion.
Although the people present could vaguely figure out that it must have something to do with the Martial Emperor powerhouse the moment they heard about the Emperor Stage Profundity from the message left behind by the Martial Emperor powerhouse, they still could not help but gasp out loud the moment they found out about the exact function of that Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment.
“So, this is to say that the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment is more valuable than the Monarch Stage Profundity Fragment?” Huang Daniu’s breathing became rapid. He panted loudly non-stop, and his chest rose up and down. He could not calm down for a long time.
“Of course!” Duan Ling Tian nodded before continuing with a solemn look, “The difficulty faced by a Ninth Level Monarch Emperor powerhouse to break through to the Martial Emperor Stage is more than a hundred times harder than a Ninth Level Void Transformation martial artist to the Martial Monarch Stage! And, it’s exactly because of this reason that it’s difficult for them to comprehend the Emperor Stage Profundity. However, if there’s an Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment that suits them, they would be able to comprehend the Emperor Stage Profundity in one fell swoop and complete the cultivation of the Martial Emperor Stage to become a Martial Emperor!” As he explained to the end, Duan Ling Tian could not suppress the excitement that boiled up from his chest as well. His eyes were shining and gleaming brightly with enthusiasm.
Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment!
He must admit that he was intrigued as well.
“In the Martial Emperor’s message, we’ll enter the real Martial Emperor’s secret treasure once we enter the surrounding dark fog!” One disciple from who-knew-what-sect interjected all of a sudden. Right away, everybody, except for Duan Ling Tian, turned their attention toward the dark fog surrounding the platform they were standing on.
“Let’s go!” With an order, Zhang Yan led Qi Feng, Qin Hao, and five other disciples from the Emotion Severing Sect as they flew out one by one to enter the dark fog surrounding the platform.
In a blink of an eye, the eight figures from Emotion Severing Sect, including Zhang Yan, disappeared before Duan Ling Tian and the others.
“Duan Ling Tian, I’ll also go in first.” At this moment, Xuan Bei nodded his head at Duan Ling Tian. After bidding goodbye to Duan Ling Tian, he flew into the surrounding dark fog as well.
Nineteen Empyrean Temple’s disciples, including Ou Chen, followed suit like shadows.
After the two Sun Moon Sect’s disciples nodded at Duan Ling Tian in a friendly manner, they flew into the dark fog as well.
“Duan Ling Tian, although you’ve killed so many Sun Moon Sect’s disciples, it doesn’t seem like those two are harboring any hatred toward you at all. Moreover, they even greeted you so amicably.” Huang Daniu stared at the direction where the two Sun Moon Sect’s disciples disappeared into and could not suppress the shock that he felt.
“They’re wise people,” Duan Ling Tian said with a faint smile.
“This I must admit! If they’re not wise, they would have most likely ended up in two or three pieces like the other Sun Moon Sect’s disciples.” The moment Huang Daniu recalled the blow that Duan Ling Tian had demonstrated on the high platform earlier, he still could feel shivers running down his spine.
Who would have thought that Duan Ling Tin who was usually gentle and courteous would have such a bloody side?
At that time, Duan Ling Tian was like the Asura that crept up from purgatory, and in his wrath, blood became river while bodies became a mountain.
“Big Brother Duan, let’s go in as well.” Feng Tian Wu motioned to Duan Ling Tian.
