Chapter 970: The Last Profundity Fragment in the Outer Ring
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
It was just like what Duan Ling Tian had speculated, only one out of the three spirit fruits that grew on the Tricolor Plant was left at the moment.
Zi Shang had consumed two of the spirit fruits.
‘Zi Shang should have only digested one spirit fruit’s medicinal efficacy… Otherwise, his cultivation base would have definitely ascended to the Second Level Void Transformation if he had digested the second spirit fruit’s medicinal efficacy!’ When Duan Ling Tian thought about this, he felt fortunate.
To him, Zi Shang would undoubtedly be a tough opponent if he had broken through to the Second Level Void Transformation!
The reason he managed to defeat Zi Shang directly earlier was due to his power that suppressed Zi Shang in all aspects. Otherwise, he would not be able to do it so smoothly.
‘If I didn’t find out about the Tricolor Plant and made my way here or if Zi Shang took the Tricolor Plant along with him when he took the three spirit fruits… I would definitely not be here in time to find him hiding here!’ Duan Ling Tian could not help but reveal a hint of fear in his eyes when he thought about this.
“As soon as Zi Shang absorbed and digested the three spirit fruits, he would definitely break through his cultivation base to the Second Level Void Transformation…”
“I would definitely be defeated if I bumped into him at that time, and I probably would’ve to use the amulet to kill him.”
The more Duan Ling Tian thought about it, the more fearful he became. He really felt he was fortunate, and it showed on his face.
He felt fortunate that he did not have to use the amulet that his father only in name left him.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian’s attention was diverted.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed when he looked at the spirit fruit in his hand that was so red that it was as though it was dripping blood.
‘I’ll eat this spirit fruit and wait until my cultivation base ascends… After that, I’ll continue to figure out where the central area is…’ He looked at the corner on top of this secluded cave subconsciously as he thought about it.
The inconspicuous dark cave in the corner was where Zi Shang was hiding in earlier.
“I’ll cultivate here then.”
Duan Ling Tian flew and entered the dark cave. He found the place empty, and it could easily contain his entire person.
“It’s obvious that this tiny cave had just been opened up not long ago… Seems like it was done by Zi Shang,” Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself softly.
He was relieved that Zi Shang was dead. Otherwise, he would suffer like he had a fishbone stuck in his throat!
“That Ghost Flame is just too strange… Luckily I killed him so he’s no longer a threat to me,” Duan Ling Tian said to himself softly as a gleam flashed in his eyes.
‘All twenty Skywolf Fort’s disciples died in my hands this time… I can consider this as earning back some ‘interest’ from Skywolf Fort for myself! If the few Vice Fort Masters at Skywolf Fort know about all this, I’m afraid they’ll be so angry that they’ll vomit blood.’ Duan Tian Lang was secretly glad when he thought about this.
Back then, the people from Skywolf Fort almost killed him because they coveted the Devilseal Tablet in his hands. It had caused an innocent person to die because of him.
From that moment onward, his hatred toward Skywolf Fort was deep-rooted in his heart.
In the future, he would definitely travel to Skywolf Fort in Ancient Desert City to teach them a good lesson when he achieved a boost in his ability.
Moreover, he would definitely kill the four Vice Fort Masters who led a team to chase after him!
“Meng Li, Ning Can, Yu Kang, and Feng Wei,” Duan Ling Tian uttered the four Skywolf Fort Vice Fort Masters’ names loudly and clearly as his eyes gleamed coldly.
A moment later, Duan Ling Tian finally calmed down and popped the red spirit fruit into his mouth and swallowed it down into his stomach.
The medicinal efficacy turned into a warm current and merged with his body immediately.
Very quickly, the Origin Energy in his body began to churn. The overbearing medicinal efficacy from the Rebirth Pill that was hiding deep in his Dantian was released and integrated completely with the Origin energy.

At this moment, Duan Ling Tian was completely immersed in his cultivation. His cultivation base was ascending at a terrifying speed from the double boost of the spirit fruit’s medicinal efficacy and the Rebirth Pill’s overbearing medicinal efficacy.
‘Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! ‘
That noise reverberated in one of the caves in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure’s outer ring while Duan Ling Tian was deep in his cultivation.
Loud ‘bangs’ were heard over and over again. The entire cave was filled with gusts of strong wind, and sand and dust were flying everywhere. It was difficult for one to see what was happening in there.
There were two silhouettes flashing past each other continuously in the cave. The battle seemed like it was stuck in a stalemate!
An overbearing saber glow would form whenever one of them swung the saber in his hand with the might of splitting a mountain.
Meanwhile, the other person had spirit weapon gloves on both of his hands. Whenever he punched, purple lightning would surround his fists and a thunderous sound would reverberate.
“Peng Bao, give me that Profundity Fragment… Otherwise, I’ll definitely kill you today!”
The muscular young man whose punches were like thunder had thick brows, big eyes, and his voice was loud and clear.
“Lei Jun, everyone can boast! If you’re really capable, go ahead, kill me and take the Profundity Fragment in my hands. Although the Profundity Fragment I have is an Eighth Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment, it suits you…”
“However, from what I know, there are many senior officials in your Izumo Sect who has comprehended the Ninth Level Advanced Thunder Concept, right? You’ll just benefit someone else even if you managed to obtain this Profundity Fragrant… Why would you go all out for this?”
The young man who was shooting a domineering saber glow from his hands did not care when faced with Lei Jun’s threat. Instead, he was advising Lei Jun.
If Duan Ling Tian was here, he would definitely recognize the person immediately.
He had met this young man once, and they had traded before. He was Annica Sect’s disciple, Peng Bao.
The situation at the moment was easy to understand.
Peng Bao had obtained one of the Profundity Fragments at the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure’s outer ring, and it was the Eighth Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment. It had piqued Lei Jun, the Izumo Sect disciple’s interest to fight for the fragment.
It was difficult to determine who was winning since it was a draw between him and Lei Jun.
As they battled for a while, Lei Jun seemed to notice that it was difficult for him to defeat Peng Bao. He then changed his tone to one that was calmer. “Peng Bao, from what I know, none of the senior officials in your Anicca Sect has comprehended the Ninth Level Advanced Thunder Concept! The senior officials in your Anicca Sect won’t be able to use it even if you bring it back.”
“Why don’t we make a deal… As long as you’re willing to give me this Eighth Level Monarch Stage Thunder Profundity Fragment, I’ll agree to your condition as long as it’s something our Izumo Sect is capable of doing.” Lei Jun’s tone became desperate as he reached the end of his sentence since he was desperate to obtain the Profundity Fragment in Peng Bao’s hands.
“Unless you can trade a Profundity Fragment that can help our Anicca Sect’s senior officials… Otherwise, don’t think even think about taking the Thunder Profundity Fragment from me!” Peng Bao said calmly.
‘What kind of joke is that!’
The Anicca Sect that he was in and the Izumo Sect that Lei Jun was from had always been incompatible like fire and water all these years.
If he was to give up the Thunder Profundity Fragment that he had, another Monarch powerhouse would undoubtedly be born in Izumo Sect. At that time, Izumo Sect would beat Anicca Sect.
Therefore, although none of them could use the Thunder Profundity Fragment at the moment, it was impossible for him to give it up to the people from Izumo Sect.
Lei Jun wore a solemn expression on his face when he heard what Peng Bao said. He moved suddenly and retreated quickly.
Peng Bao did not chase after him when he saw Lei Jun retreating. Instead, he stood where he was and looked at Lei Jun calmly.
“Peng Bao, I can promise you this,” Lei Jun took a deep breath and promised, “From this moment onward… You and I will collaborate to look and fight for the second Profundity Fragment!”
A smile appeared on Peng Bao’s face when he heard that.
Lei Jun was the second most powerful person among the current Izumo Sect’s disciples. His ability was not any lesser than Peng Bao’s.
He would definitely be able to overcome all obstacles to obtain the Profundity Fragment that Anicca Sect needed if he collaborated with Lei Jun.
“From this moment onward, apart from looking and fighting for other Profundity Fragments in the outer ring… We also have to figure out the directions to the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure’s central area and head over there,” said Peng Bao.
After that, the small team that Peng Bao and Lei Jun established temporarily began to move swiftly at the outer ring.
Unfortunately, their dream to look for the other four Profundity Fragments in the outer ring could not be realized.
The four Profundity Fragments had found masters of their own.
When Peng Bao and Lei Jun were looking for the directions to the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure’s central area, a group of survivors in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure was looking for the fragments as well.
The Martial Emperor’s secret treasure’s central area was the place where the Martial Emperor, who had left this secret treasure behind, ended his life. According to the Martial Emperor’s message, his body should be located there.
Apart from the ample treasures that might be there, the three Profundity Fragments in the Martial Emperor’s body alone were sufficient to drive someone crazy to look for them!
Those were Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment and two Monarch Stage Profundity Fragments.
While they were looking for the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure’s central area and heading there, Duan Ling Tian remained immersed in his cultivation. He seemed to have forgotten about time.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, the Roving Dragon Form!
The Origin Energy in his body was circulating rapidly to boost his cultivation base quickly.
It was unknown how long had passed when Duan Ling Tian finally opened his eyes that gleamed in the dark.
Duan Ling Tian woke up when the Rebirth Pill’s overbearing medicinal efficacy returned to his Dantian, and he did not continue to cultivate.
Meanwhile, he had exhausted the red spirit fruit’s medicinal efficacy completely.
His cultivation base had successfully broken through to the Third Level Void Transformation, and he had reached the Fourth Level Void Transformation’s plateau and it was still unstable.
Suddenly, a rapid wind whistling noise arose in the tiny, dark cave. Soon, the noise became louder and louder.
“Third Level Advanced Wind Concept… I’ve finally comprehended it.”
At that moment when Duan Ling Tian was mumbling to himself, he flew out of the tiny, dark cave as if he had transformed into a gust of wind. He then appeared in the spacious cave outside that was as bright as day.
“I should continue to look for the directions to the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure’s central area,” Duan Ling Tian muttered. Once he finished speaking, he was nowhere to be seen.
