“Immortal Spirit Herb, it’s the Immortal Spirit Herb!”
“Hahahaha… Xiong Quan’s Dantian will be healed! Xiong Quan’s Dantian will be healed!”
Duan Ling Tian’s joy was written all over his face. He was laughing to the point that he had lost his usual composure. There were excitement and joy in his laughter.
Xiong Quan followed him wherever he went back in the days when he was still in the Crimson Sky Kingdom. He did his best to serve Duan Ling Tian without a single word of complaint.
He even helped him extricate himself from many critical situations back in those days so that he remained safe and sound.
A few years later, when they were at the Eternal Jade Restaurant in the Ancient City of Everlast of Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, Xiong Quan had his Dantian destroyed by a Void Initiation martial artist when he was protecting Duan Ling Tian. Since then, he left Duan Ling Tian and returned to his hometown.
Throughout the years, Duan Ling Tian did not forget about Xiong Quan’s Dantian being destroyed, not even for a second did he forget about that matter!
In fact, he felt guiltier as time passed, he felt like he owed Xiong Quan too much.
The last time he returned to his hometown after the Darkhan Dynasty Martial Competition ended, he did not visit Xiong Quan at all due to the guilt he felt.
At that time, he had made up his mind.
The next time he met Xiong Quan again would be the time he healed his Dantian.
“Initially, I thought that I’ll only obtain the Quasi Royal Grade Resurrection Pill when I find the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s great treasure to help Xiong Quan heal his Dantian… I didn’t expect to see the Immortal Spirit Herb here!”
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes revealed a hint of excitement when he looked at the plant with three leaves before his eyes.
Even in the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, the Immortal Spirit Herb only existed in legends, people had only heard of it but had never seen it before.
The Immortal Spirit Herb was a legendary medicinal herb.
Duan Ling Tian had to give credit to the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory for being able to identify the Immortal Spirit Herb today.
Although the Rebirth Martial Emperor had never seen the Immortal Spirit Herb before, he had heard many legends about the Immortal Spirit Herb and knew some of its characteristics.
The Immortal Spirit Herb had straight roots and leaves with a green glow.
The most crucial part is the pattern on its leaves that was completely different from usual herbs.
The usual herbs would have a straight line in the middle while its pattern branched out on both sides.
However, the pattern on the Immortal Spirit Herb was a spiral, and a green glow spread out from the middle. It gave off an extraordinary feeling.
That was how Duan Ling Tian identified the plant with three leaves as the Immortal Spirit Herb that he had always wanted.
Although he knew of the Immortal Spirit Herb’s existence in the past and that it could help Xiong Quan heal his Dantian, the Immortal Spirit Herb was too ethereal and unreal that he did not dream he would obtain it one day.
He thought he would have to find the Quasi Royal Grade Resurrection Pill or the Royal Grade Resurrection Pill from the great treasure the Rebirth Martial Emperor left behind to help Xiong Quan heal his Dantian.
“With this Immortal Spirit Herb, I don’t have to wait until I find the great treasure the Martial Emperor left behind to retrieve the Resurrection Pill to help Xiong Quan heal his Dantian!”
Duan Ling Tian was overjoyed as he looked at the Immortal Spirit Herb before his eyes.
“There’s a total of three leaves on the Immortal Spirit Herb… I only need one to heal Xiong Quan’s Dantian! As for the remaining two, I’ll give one to Big Brother Zhang so that he can heal his wife’s Dantian.”
Duan Ling Tian came up with a plan as he looked at the Immortal Spirit Herb before his eyes.
Zhang Shou Yong’s wife, Wang Qiong, also had her Dantian damaged, and she could no longer cultivate.
Perhaps Zhang Shou Yong’s current ability was nothing compared to him, but it was Zhang Shou Yong who saved his life at the Eternal Jade Restaurant in the Ancient City of Everlast back then.
Otherwise, he would not be able to achieve what he had achieved today.
Therefore, he must return the favor by many folds due to the fact that Zhang Shou Yong saved his life!
“Big Brother Zhang will be very happy if he knows about this.”
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and put the Immortal Spirit Herb away like a precious treasure.
The Immortal Spirit Herb was different from the usual herbs that wilted easily.
The Immortal Spirit Herb, as a legendary medicinal herb, would not wilt even if it was removed from the soil.
‘Seems like I’ll need to alter my plan a little after leaving the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure… I must return to Darkhan Dynasty to heal Xiong Quan and Big Brother Zhang’s wife’s Dantians. Only after that, I’ll look for the great treasure the Rebirth Martial Emperor left behind.’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself secretly.
From the moment he killed Lei Zhong, he had planned to leave Five Element Sect. He did not plan to stay in the northern desert as well.
He would look for the great treasure the Rebirth Martial Emperor left behind in his second life despite the fact that he had yet to identify the exact location of the treasure up until now.
However, he would be able to identify the location as long as he found a rough map of Cloud Continent. He would then be able to retrieve the great treasure the Rebirth Martial Emperor left behind.
Now that he found the Immortal Spirit Herb in the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure by accident, it changed his plan.
He decided there was no hurry to look for the great treasure the Rebirth Martial Emperor left behind after he left the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure. He would return to the Darkhan Dynasty first so that he could help Xiong Quan and Wang Qiong heal their Dantians.
He would plan for the rest at a later date.
“I wonder what’s up there.”
Duan Ling Tian was pulled back to reality after putting the Immortal Spirit Herb away. He looked at the ceiling that was wide open when he lifted his head. His eyes lit up, and he leaped into the air.
In just an instant, Duan Ling Tian leaped and arrived at another place as he left the One-in-Four Stone Room beneath his feet.
“This… looks like the other level of the central palace?”
Duan Ling Tian looked around for a while and faintly speculated as his heart jolted.
The central palace was the palace located in the central area of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure. It was also the place where the Martial Emperor who left this Martial Emperor’s secret treasure behind ended his life, and where his body was located.
Most of the young powerhouses, including Duan Ling Tian, came for the three Profundity Fragments in the Martial Emperor’s body.
Especially the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment. One could imagine how precious it was since it was ranked as the top treasure in the entire Cloud Continent.
Even if the person who obtained the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment could not use it personally, he could find a Ninth Level Monarch Stage powerhouse who had comprehended the corresponding profundity and give it to him as a favor.
That person could even get the Ninth Level Monarch Stage powerhouse to swear on the Ninety-Nine Heavenly Tribulation to protect him for life.
As soon as he obtained the Emperor Stage Profundity Fragment, breaking through to the Martial Emperor Stage and becoming a Martial Emperor powerhouse was not difficult at all.
In that case, it was equivalent to having a Martial Emperor powerhouse to depend on!
Would that not mean that person would be invincible on the Cloud Continent since that person had a Martial Emperor powerhouse to depend on in the future?
“If I didn’t remember it wrong… There are a total of five levels in this palace where the Martial Emperor powerhouse ended his life.” Duan Ling Tian pondered for a while.
Although there were only five levels in the palace, the height of each level exceeded the height of normal palaces.
Therefore, although there were only five levels in this palace, it seemed to be extraordinarily tall.
“Young one, welcome to the Qing Feng Palace’s second level… Since you managed to get here, you’re worthy of knowing my honorific title! Martial Emperor Qing Feng is my honorific title.”
Just as Duan Ling Tian took a step forward and realized that he had activated the Polyphony Formation once again, a familiar yet unfamiliar voice entered his ears.
“Qing Feng Palace? Martial Emperor Qing Feng?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up when he heard the voice.
He knew nothing about the Martial Emperor who left this Martial Emperor’s secret treasure behind since the beginning when he journeyed here and until now after he had entered the palace.
Now that the Martial Emperor who left this Martial Emperor’s secret treasure behind took the initiative to introduce himself, Duan Ling Tian finally knew his honorific title.
Since Duan Ling Tian had the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory in him, it was natural for him to know that all Martial Emperors on the Cloud Continent had honorific titles of their own that they carried through their entire lives.
Just like the Rebirth Martial Emperor, it was also an honorific title.
Martial Emperor Qing Feng was the honorific title of the Martial Emperor who left this Martial Emperor’s secret treasure behind…
‘Since this is the Qing Feng Palace’s second level… Then I should be on the first level earlier. There are a total of five levels in the Qing Feng Palace, does this mean we’ll have to ascend level by level?’ Duan Ling Tian speculated secretly.
As if it was responding to Duan Ling Tian’s speculation, Martial Emperor Qing Feng’s voice sounded again. “I’ve set up a Nine-Nine Wooden Figure Stage on Qing Feng Palace’s second level… The first person who breaks through the Nine-Nine Wooden Figure Stage will receive a copper key and will be granted permission to enter the Qing Feng Palace’s third level.”
“The Mirror Image Illusory Formation will vanish, and the Nine-Nine Wooden Figure Stage will be activated ten breaths later!”
Martial Emperor Qing Feng’s voice entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears clearly.
‘Mirror Image Illusory Formation?’
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed after he heard what Martial Emperor Qing Feng said. He extended his Spiritual Energy out immediately and realized that everything around him was an illusion.
It was all illusory mirror images made up by the Mirror Image Illusory Formation, they did not exist at all. He could only look at them but not touch them.
“Nine-Nine Wooden Figure Stage? What’s that? Wooden Figure?”
Throughout the next ten breaths, Duan Ling Tian thought to himself, ‘So what if there are so many of them if they’re Wooden Figures? They’ll turn into scattering powder when I fight them with all my strength!” Duan Ling Tian was very confident about his current ability.
However, subconsciously, he knew the Nine-Nine Wooden Figure Stage would not be as easy as he thought. After all, it was a test the Martial Emperor left behind.
‘This is the Qing Feng Palace’s second level… Theoretically, this Nine-Nine Wooden Figure Stage should be more powerful than the human and beast sculptures on the first level,’ Duan Ling Tian speculated secretly as he drew on his experience on the Qing Feng Palace’s first level.
“Also… Those who managed to pass through the Nine-Nine Wooden Figure Stage would only obtain one copper key? Isn’t this Martial Emperor Qing Feng too stingy?” Duan Ling Tian’s thought to himself as his heart jolted.
He figured something was wrong after changing his mindset. “It’s the Qing Feng Palace’s second level… Theoretically, the reward for breaking through each level would definitely not be any lower than the value of the grade one spirit weapons and medicinal pills!”
“Perhaps, there’s some secret hidden behind the copper key that I don’t know about!” The more Duan Ling Tian thought about it, the more certain he became.
