Chapter 955: Peng Bao
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Many of the materials needed to refine the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Weapon were difficult to refine even with the Weapon Flame possessed by a grade one weapon craftsman.
It was precisely due to this reason that the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Weapon possessed an ability that allowed it to destroy other ordinary spirit weapons, including the grade one spirit weapon.
Even a grade one spirit weapon could be destroyed as well?
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, the North Nether Sect’s disciple could not help but narrow his eyes immediately. There was a look of surprise on his face as he asked in a deep voice, “Who are you actually?”
“A nobody,” Duan Ling Tian replied indifferently. Meanwhile, the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in his hand was already lifted up, poised to kill the North Nether Sect’s disciple anytime now.
“I’m a disciple of North Nether Sect. North Nether Sect won’t let you go if you dare to kill me!!” The North Nether Sect disciple threatened in a low voice.
Faced with the looming murderous intent in the purple-clad young man’s eyes, he did not escape. This was because he knew that he could not escape at all.
His opponent’s strength far outweighed his own.
“There’s no other third living person here. Do you think that anybody will know I killed you if you die here?” Upon hearing the North Nether Sect disciple’s words, Duan Ling Tian could not suppress the laughter that boiled up from his chest as he cast a glance at him like he was looking at a fool.
In the next second, before the opponent had the time to react, Duan Ling Tian had already taken out his sword and killed him off.
After Duan Ling Tian killed this North Nether Sect’s disciple, he retrieved his Spatial Ring before taking away the Earth Concept Fragments that he obtained from over a hundred puppets.
Duan Ling Tian stored hundreds of Earth Concept Fragments inside the Spatial Ring and transformed into a gust of wind before he disappeared into the cavern that was as huge as a gymnasium.
For a time, all that remained in the large cave were a few piles of stones and three ghastly bodies.
“Seventh Level Monarch Stage Earth Profundity Fragment… Not bad!” Duan Ling Tian flew forward in a fast speed while holding onto the Profundity Fragment that was gleaming with khaki aura in his hand as he muttered, “Coupled with the Third Level Monarch Stage Wind Profundity Fragment, Third Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment, and the Third Level Monarch Stage Sword Profundity Fragment, all of the Profundity Fragments that I need are all complete now. The pressing matter now is to find a piece of Profundity Fragment that I don’t need so that I can give it to the sect.” He put aside the Profundity Fragment that was gleaming with khaki chi. His eyes gleamed as he continued his search during his journey.
Along the way, he met with other young powerhouses from other forces as well.
Other than the young disciples from the other forces that entered from Entrance No. 2 with him, he also met with many unfamiliar faces. “These people must be the disciples from the second-rate forces who entered from Entrance No. 1.”
Along the way, he witnessed many battles as well.
They were either battles to fight for grade two spirit weapons and grade one spirit weapon or battles for Concept Fragments that were at the Seventh Level and above. The situation on the battlefield was horrifying. Every once in a while, there would be a few young powerhouses who died in the match.
However, Duan Ling Tian did not interfere at all.
He was not interested at all in the grade two or one spirit weapon.
As for the Concept Fragment, he was only missing one Ninth Level Earth Concept Fragment. However, he did not come across it during his journey. The rest of the treasure did not elicit any interest from him at all.
“Huh?” After passing through a vast cavern, Duan Ling Tian seemed to have sensed something as he suddenly came to a halt.
Almost at the same time, he heard the sound of a saber slashing clearly.
The moment he heard it, he immediately shifted his glance toward it just in time to see a sturdy young man throwing out a spirit saber from his hand before killing another young man in just a stride.
After the sturdy young man had succeeded in his attack, he looked at two young men standing nearby, their faces had turned ghastly pale. He said with disdain, “Now, are the two of you still interested in the Ninth Level Earth Concept Fragment in my hand?”
Upon hearing this, the two young men exchanged glances with each other, and right away, they dismissed the idea of battling this sturdy young man.
“The Ninth Level Earth Concept Fragment?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up immediately. Just a moment ago, he was still wondering to himself when he would come across a Ninth Level Earth Concept Fragment. It did not cross his mind that he would encounter one in just a blink of an eye.
Duan Ling Tian immediately extended his Spiritual Energy to probe the sturdy young man’s cultivation base.
“T-Third Level Void Transformation?!” The instance Duan Ling Tian discovered the opponent’s cultivation base, he instantly narrowed his eyes as a shocked expression appeared on his face.
The North Nether Sect’s disciple earlier had a cultivation base at the Second Level Void Transformation. That was already more than enough to leave him in shock. Now, he had encountered another stronger person — a young man who was at the Third Level Void Transformation.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian began to seriously observe this sturdy young man.
The sturdy young man was dressed wholly in green. He looked ordinary with thick brows and big eyes. Although he appeared disheveled, his big eyes shone with intelligence.
It was apparent that he was not as simple as he appeared to be.
“Third Level Void Transformation! Once he unleashes his full energy, it would be equivalent to the strength of 400 ancient horned dragons. The spirit saber in his hand is a grade two spirit saber. Although the boost it gives is not as much as the spirit weapon that I refined myself, it’s still quite high. It gives at least a 78% power boost!” After Duan Ling Tian probed the opponent’s cultivation base, he started to ponder over it. “Having a 78% boost from the strength of 400 ancient horned dragons is equivalent to the strength of over 310 ancient horned dragons. That’s to say, he can demonstrate a strength of over 710 ancient horned dragons even without any Concept. If the Void Transformation Concept that he comprehends is at the second level or above, I’m no match for him in terms of strength.”
The moment Duan Ling Tian thought of this, he gasped.
His full power plus the strength that the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword provided were equivalent to the strength of 1000 ancient horned dragons.
If the opponent comprehended the Second Level Void Transformation Concept, he would have a strength of 1010 ancient horned dragons if he unleashed his full energy.
If that was the case, Duan Ling Tian would not be afraid of him and would battle it out with him.
However, if the opponent had comprehended the Third Level Void Transformation Concept, or perhaps a higher level Void Transformation Concept, Duan Ling Tian would undoubtedly not be a match for him.
After all, it was not impossible for the opponent to comprehend a Third Level Void Transformation.
However, Duan Ling Tian was slightly reluctant to let go of the Ninth Level Earth Concept Fragment just like that.
“If any of you have a Ninth Level Saber Concept Fragment, I’m happy to exchange the Ninth Level Earth Concept Fragment that I just obtained with you. However, if you don’t have any, scram now!” At this moment, the sturdy young man’s voice once again entered Duan Ling Tian’s ear. It caused his eyes to lit up instantly.
The Ninth Level Saber Concept Fragment?
He had exactly one on hand currently.
It was the fragment that he won from the bet he made with the Sect Leader of Sun Moon Sect before he entered the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure.
The two young men standing by the side were originally fidgeting, but the moment they heard the words that came out of the sturdy young man’s mouth, they immediately heaved a sigh of relief. They did not dare to stay there any longer and quickly left and disappeared into the cavern in just a blink of an eye.
For a time, the entire cavern became empty apart from Duan Ling Tian and the sturdy young man.
“What now? Are you trying to snatch the Ninth Level Earth Concept Fragment from me too?” The instance he noticed Duan Ling Tian, the sturdy young man said nonchalantly with his eyebrows raised, “Don’t blame me for not reminding you of this. Sometimes, a wrong decision may cost you your life!”
The moment Duan Ling Tian heard the words that left the sturdy young man’s mouth, he laughed in his sleeve.
This person did not seem like a bad-tempered person. Instead, he had a ‘tit for tat’ kind of attitude.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian could finally breathe freely again.
Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes and asked bluntly, “You said earlier that I can use a Ninth Level Saber Concept Fragment to exchange for the Ninth Level Earth Concept Fragment in your hand?”
“That’s right!” The sturdy young man nodded. In the next moment, as though he had thought of something, his eyes lit up instantly. “Brother… Are you trying to say that you have the Ninth Level Saber Concept Fragment in your hand?”
As he finished his sentence, the sturdy young man’s eyes were burning with fire.
Duan Ling Tian lifted his hand up and a fragment appeared in his palm — that was none other than the Ninth Level Saber Concept Fragment that he won from the Sect Leader of the Sun Moon Sect.
“The Ninth Level Saber Concept Fragment!” Upon seeing the fragment that Duan Ling Tian took out, an excited smile crept up on the sturdy young man’s face. At the same time, he took out a dark khaki fragment — the Ninth Level Earth Concept Fragment.
“Little brother, let’s exchange!”
As though he was afraid that Duan Ling Tian would regret his decision, the sturdy young man raised a hand up and threw the Ninth Level Earth Concept Fragment at Duan Ling Tian. It seemed like he was not worried Duan Ling Tian would go back on his words after taking the fragment from him.
Duan Ling Tian did not expect this sturdy young man to be so straightforward. A sense of fondness immediately rose up in his heart. As he caught hold of the Ninth Level Earth Concept Fragment, he threw the Saber Concept Fragment he was holding to the opponent as well.
The sturdy young man reached out a hand to catch hold of it. As though he had received a treasure, he quickly stored it in his Spatial Ring before turning toward Duan Ling Tian with a grin. “I’m Peng Bao, the disciple of Anicca Sect. May I know your name please?”
The Anicca Sect was one of the three great second-rate forces in the northern desert.
Duan Ling Tian, who was fond of Peng Bao, responded with a smile. “Duan Ling Tian, a disciple of Five Element Sect.”
“Five Element Sect?” Upon hearing this, a gleam flashed across Peng Bao’s eyes as he asked in astonishment, “The Five Element Sect from the southern district of the northern desert?”
“Yes,” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“I’ve heard my master mentioned your Five Element Sect before. It’s said that there was once a martial artist who was extremely talented and had the potential to become a Martial Monarch. It was unfortunate that he was injured twenty over years ago. Ever since then, he did not recover from the setback,” Peng Bao said.
The moment he heard Peng Bao’s words, Duan Ling Tian was stunned for a while. He immediately knew the person that Peng Bao referred to was none other than Qi Yu, the Peak Master of Wood Peak in Five Element Sect.
However, he did not think that Qi Yu’s fame would be so widespread to the point that even somebody from a second-rate force in the northern desert would know about him.
“That’s our Peak Master from Wood Peak in Five Element Sect.” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
Peng Bao nodded before continuing, “Brother Ling Tian, I’m happy to have met you today. If there’s a chance in the future, let’s have a drink or two together one day! Another thing, this Martial Emperor’s secret treasure is completely shrouded in danger. If you don’t have full certainty, it’s best not to take the initiative to snatch the treasure from the hands of others.”
