Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
With the gigantic hammer in his hand, the black-clad young man was like an unparalleled War God. His eyes gleamed coldly as the black robe on his body fluttered loudly in the wind. His voice was as cold as ice as he spoke unhurriedly, “Dead man, there’s no need for you to know my identity!”
“That’s right! Why do I need to know the identity of a dead man?” Upon hearing the black-clad young man’s words, Duan Ling Tian was momentarily stunned before he burst out in a hearty laughter.
Duan Ling Tian’s laughter immediately made Huang Daniu, Su Li, and Zhang Shou Yong stared at each other speechlessly.
“Duan Ling Tian can still laugh out loud at this moment? Could it be that he has faith in himself to defeat that black-clad young man?” Su Li muttered in a low voice with his eyes narrowed.
“That black-clad young man displayed a strength of over 1350 ancient horned dragons with the help of his spirit weapon! If Duan Ling Tian can defeat him, then it means that his strength is actually…” A gasp escaped from Huang Daniu’s throat before he could finish his sentence.
Zhang Shou Yong stared intensely at the purple figure hovering in the air as he muttered, “I’ve known Brother Duan Ling Tian for a long time now so I know his conduct pretty well. If he can laugh at this time, it’s obvious that he has faith in winning this battle and mowing that black-clad young man down!”
Upon hearing Zhang Shou Yong’s words, Huang Daniu and Su Li’s hearts that were hoisted high instantly eased. Anticipation could be seen in their eyes as they eagerly waited to watch Duan Ling Tian make his move.
“Go to hell!” Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words and seeing the bright smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face, the black-clad young man could not contain his temper any longer. He glowered before he disappeared from the spot where he was standing.
The gigantic hammer in the black-clad young man’s hand tore through with him in tow and charged at Duan Ling Tian like an exploding cannonball in an overbearing manner.
The airflow in the air began to tremble and set off a thunderous explosion in the places that it passed by.
As they exploded, invisible airwaves quivered and compressed the airflow in the air before it set off a vast hurricane that swept out in all directions that resulted in dust covering the entire cavern. Apart from that, a series of ear-piercing wind whistling sound echoed in the cavern too.
The gigantic hammer in the black-clad young man’s hand contained a strength of 1350 ancient horned dragons and was like a meteorite that was falling down with the speed of lightning as it slammed down toward Duan Ling Tian’s head mercilessly.
“What a powerful force!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed slightly, and his face darkened a little when he saw the airflow dispersing as the gigantic hammer slammed down.
In the face of the gigantic hammer that the black-clad young man wielded, a sword appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s hand out of thin air — it was a sword that emitted a sharp and jagged aura.
A milky white Origin Energy soared out of Duan Ling Tian’s body and transformed into a khaki energy that rushed into the sword. Moreover, bolts of purple lightning that were as thick as electric snakes wrapped around the sword as well.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
A series of faint explosion erupted in the air.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Meanwhile, gusts of speedy blue wind chi appeared and intertwined around the sword as it exuded waves and waves of sharp aura.
In just a flash, Duan Ling Tian’s hands lifted the Quasi Royal Blade Spirit Sword above his head, and his entire body exuded an awfully sharp and serrated aura!
The energy of the sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hands spread over his entire body, and it made him look as though he had become one with the sword.
The khaki energy entwined with purple lightning and blue wind chi spread out from the surface of his body and the sword in his hand as it enveloped both him and the sword and transformed into a giant sword.
As the khaki energy that was intertwined with purple lightning and blue wind chi exploded, the giant sword soared up into the sky and charged toward the gigantic hammer that was slamming down in an overbearing manner like a meteor.
When the giant sword soared up into the sky, the sharp and serrated aura filled the entire cavern, even Huang Daniu and the other two who were standing by the entrance could clearly feel this aura.
“What a powerful Sword Concept!” Su Li’s eyes narrowed instantly.
As a Sword Cultivator, Su Li had a keen sense when it came to the Sword Concept. His perception of this was far better than that of Huang Daniu and Zhang Shou Yong.
At this moment, his attention suddenly shifted and landed on the giant sword that was about to clash with the gigantic hammer.
He could see that Duan Ling Tian was not using any other martial skills at all, and similarly, the black-clad young man was not using any other martial skills as well.
It was a direct confrontation between the both of them.
They forsook all those complex skills and merely fought with each other using their brute strength, fully demonstrating the enthusiasm and passion of a martial artist!
Like Thor’s hammer, the gigantic hammer in the black-clad young man’s hand crashed down without warning and continuously dissipated the airflow in the air. Like a humongous stone that dropped into a calm lake, it set off numerous ripples that spread out.
The strength of over 1350 ancient horned dragons endowed the gigantic hammer with an enormous power, and it elicited confidence that rose from the bottom of the black-clad young man’s heart.
The gigantic sword that Duan Ling Tian and the sword transformed into suddenly swept out and intercepted the falling gigantic hammer in the black-clad young man’s hand without an ounce of fear.
Unlike the 1350 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons that were gathered by the Heaven and Earth Energy and mobilized by the black-clad young man and his hammer, from the moment Duan Ling Tian made his move until now — it had only been a few seconds since then — the Heaven and Earth Energy was still whirring above the place he passed by and had not formed the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon yet.
“What a futile effort!” In the face of the giant sword that both Duan Ling Tian and his sword transformed into, the black-clad young man’s face was filled with disdain. The khaki energy wrapped around the gigantic hammer slowly expanded and traversed the sky before slamming down on the giant sword.
Once again, the gigantic hammer flew and dropped down from the sky, it was only a mere foot away from the giant sword.
Without any fear, the giant sword intercepted it directly. The expanding sword ray clashed violently with the gigantic hammer and set off a series of ear-deafening noise.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
As though it contained an endless amount of power, the sword ray on the giant sword continued to expand and soar when it was in a deadlock with the gigantic hammer in the black-clad young man’s hand.
The gigantic hammer in the black-clad young man’s hand dropped down and a khaki energy swept out. The Third Level Advance Earth Concept that borrowed the Earth Energy swept out without any reservation.
However, the black-clad young man turned pale quickly.
This was because he noticed the energy on the giant sword that Duan Ling Tian and his sword into continued to rise and strengthen. In just a blink of an eye, it suppressed the energy that was contained in the gigantic hammer.
The moment he saw the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon that had finally solidified into form above Duan Ling Tian’s head, he was so stunned that horror dawned on his face right away, and he became distracted.
When two powerhouses were locked in a battle, the greatest mistake one could make was to be distracted!
At this moment, this black-clad young man made the biggest mistake, and it resulted in the energy of the gigantic hammer in his hand coming to a halt for a split second.
When the gigantic hammer’s energy had a sudden change due to the black-clad young man’s loss of attention, the energy that continued to rise from the giant sword swept out like it was crushing dead leaves and slammed down on the gigantic hammer violently as it enveloped the black-clad young man entirely.
A loud noise reverberated in the air. The black-clad young man and his hammer were sent flying backward all at once. Like an arrow that was shot out of a bow, they slammed toward one of the cavern walls by the side and hung on the wall.
Naturally, this was because the gigantic hammer in the black-clad young man’s hand was embedded in the cavern wall while he hung on the gigantic hammer.
“BARF!!” The black-clad young man’s vital energy and blood churned. His throat tightened, and he could not stop himself from coughing out a mouthful of blood.
To his surprise, after he threw up blood, everything became out of control. Every time he opened his mouth, spurts of vicious-looking blood would stream out from his mouth. In just a blink of an eye, a small stream of blood began to flow on the ground.
It was only after a while that he finally regained his senses and stared at the purple-clad figure hovering in the air in the distance with a ghastly pale face — Duan Ling Tian.
When the black-clad young man was sent flying away, the giant sword that Duan Ling Tian and his Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword transformed into had disappeared without a trace. Apart from that, the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword had also been put away by him.
Duan Ling Tian hovered in the air. The Heaven and Earth Phenomenon gradually dissipated from above his head.
The Heaven and Earth Phenomenon that was gradually dissipating had a total of 1,500 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons, over 140 ancient horned dragons more than the black-clad young man’s strength.
– and this was the strength Duan Ling Tian had before he communicated with the Earth using his Earth Concept to borrow the Earth Energy. Otherwise, the number of silhouettes that were slowly dissipating would not be limited to only 1,500 ancient horned dragons but 1,550 ancient horned dragons instead.
However, even if it was only 1,500 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons, it was still enough to greatly shocked Huang Daniu, Su Li, and Zhang Shou Yong.
“A-A strength of 1,500 ancient horned dragons?!” Huang Daniu’s eyes were as wide as saucers. He was completely stunned.
Duan Ling Tian’s strength had completely shaken them.
Duan Ling Tian strode out, and in just a flash, he arrived before the black-clad young man hanging from the cavern wall with the gigantic hammer in his hand. He calmly stared into his eyes.
Colors drained from the black-clad young man’s face instantly. A hint of fear was obvious in his eyes.
Long before he was sent flying, he had already seen the 1,500 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons solidifying above Duan Ling Tian’s head.
At that moment, he already knew that he was no match for Duan Ling Tian!
“A-Are you really a disciple from a third-rate force — the Five Element Sect?!” The muscles on the black-clad young man’s face continued to quiver. A hint of disbelief could be heard in his voice.
“Dead man, there’s no need for you to know my identity!” Duan Ling Tian repeated the words the black-clad young man had uttered to him before, and horror immediately dawned on the black-clad young man’s face. The khaki energy on his body rolled out as he struggled to escape.
However, when Duan Ling Tian was speaking, one of his hand was already accumulating power, and the instance the last word left his mouth, a palm that was filled with thousands of ancient horned dragons’ strength charged out and landed on the black-clad young man.
Right away, the khaki energy that was just rising from the black-clad young man instantly shattered as his entire being was smashed into the cavern wall by Duan Ling Tian with just one blow. He looked like a wall mural stuck onto the wall.
Immediately afterward, Duan Ling Tian raised a hand and took off the Spatial Ring from the black-clad young man’s finger. Without any hesitation, he performed a Blood Ownership Claim on the ring.

Duan Ling Tian’s heart leaped, and he became completely consumed with excitement.
