Chapter 995: Continue! The Fourth Level!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Whether it was the North Nether Sect’s disciple or the Izumo Sect’s disciple, both of them could see the scene before their eyes very clearly.
The red-clad young girl, whom they had regarded as a pushover, did not use even an ounce of her Origin Energy from the very beginning.
Even without using her Origin Energy, just by communicating and mobilizing her Fire Concept to activate the Heaven and Earth Energy was enough to gather one thousand silhouettes of ancient horned dragons.
In other words, Feng Tian Wu’s Fire Concept would definitely have the strength of more than one thousand ancient horned dragons once it was cast.
This also meant the Fire Concept that could unleash the strength of one thousand ancient horned dragons was none other than the Ninth Level Advance Fire Concept!
After discovering the level of Fire Concept that Feng Tian Wu had comprehended, colors drained from the faces of the North Nether Sect and Izumo Sect’s disciples as horror dawned on their faces immediately.
The two of them were in the midst of charging toward Feng Tian Wu, and they immediately slowed their speed down. They looked at each other tacitly, and both of them could see the inexplicable terror in each other’s eyes.
Within seconds, the two men came to a halt simultaneously in front of Feng Tian Wu and hastily turned around, ready to flee.
In their opinion, since Feng Tian Wu had comprehended the Ninth Level Advance Fire Concept, her cultivation base must be pretty good as well.
Ninth Level Void Transformation Concept!
Even the strongest person among the current younger generations in Izumo Sect and North Nether Sect did not have such a high comprehension of Void Transformation Concept.
For this reason, Feng Tian Wu, in their opinion, was even more terrifying than the strongest person among the current younger generation in their respective sect.
Just as the two of them turned around and was about to flee, Feng Tian Wu made her move.
The red and long whip lashed out like a red lightning and bit their skin like a poisonous snake.
The long whip tore through the sky and set off a series of swift wind whistling sound.
Ear-piercing wind whistling sound entered the eyes (T/N: isn’t it supposed to be ears instead?) of the Izumo Sect and North Nether Sect’s disciples and made them tremble for a second. Horror dawned on their faces as they hurriedly fled.
Unfortunately, they were still too slow.
The long whip that was like a red poisonous snake lashed out rapidly and penetrated the Izumo Sect and North Nether Sect disciples’ bodies. In just a twinkle of an eye, they were killed one by one.
The two of them did not even have the chance to raise their speed to flee before they died from the long whip in Feng Tian Wu’s hands in mere seconds.
As the two bodies fell on the floor, the long whip that was wriggling like a red spirit snake in Feng Tian Wu’s hands disappeared from her hands without a trace.
Meanwhile, the raging flame that was burning on her body dissipated, and the 1100 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons that finally appeared above her head also slowly dissipated into nothingness.
If the North Nether Sect and Izumo Sect’s disciples who had just passed away saw this scene, they would definitely regret running away from Feng Tian Wu in the last moment when they were still alive.
Had they known earlier that Feng Tian Wu’s full strength was only over 1100 ancient horned dragons, they would not have fled in the first place.
They only fled because they reasoned that since Feng Tian Wu had a comprehension at the Ninth Level Advance Fire Concept, her cultivation base must have also made a breakthrough to the Void Transformation.
Had they known earlier that she was only a Fourth Level Void Interpretation martial artist, they would not fear her Ninth Level Advance Fire Concept to the point that they had to flee.
Although Feng Tian Wu had the strength of over 1100 ancient horned dragons and was still slightly stronger than them, they would probably be willing to try their luck and fight her because the gap between Feng Tian Wu’s strength and theirs was not too huge, and there might be a sliver of hope in defeating her.
They chose to flee because they thought there was no hope.
“Looks like my Fire Concept can be used to scare the others,” Feng Tian Wu muttered as she looked at the two bodies on the ground. The stunning and delicate face did not seem happy nor enraged, no emotions could be seen on her face at all.
If the two of them had tried to battle it out with her earlier, it would still take some effort even if she would eventually kill them.
However, when the other party saw the Ninth Level Advance Fire Concept she mobilized and demonstrated, they immediately dismissed the thought of fighting and decided to flee hastily instead. That gave her the opportunity to give chase and kill them off easily.
It could be said the reason the two of them died so fast was due to their cowardice.
“Huh?” Feng Tian Wu suddenly expressed her surprise as though she had discovered something.
In the next moment, she saw the blood that oozed out from the two bodies and had formed a stream of fresh blood, seemed to have triggered something. It resulted in waves of aura from the Inscription Formation to rise from the surrounding.
Feng Tian Wu immediately figured out what was happening when she recalled the message left behind by Martial Emperor Qing Feng.
In the next second, a series of loud noise that came from above her head reverberated by Feng Tian Wu’s ears.
Feng Tian Wu was curious and immediately looked up. With just a glance, she saw the ceiling above her head began to move and open, revealing a path that led to the fourth level of Qing Feng Palace that welcomed her.
“Where’s the silver key?” Feng Tian Wu was not surprised by the scene before her eyes. Immediately, her thoughts shifted to the reward Martial Emperor Qing Feng left behind at the third level of Qing Feng Palace.
According to Martial Emperor Qin Feng, the reward for the third level was a silver key.
As for what the silver key was for, she had no idea at all.
Naturally, although she had no idea what the silver key was for, she could faintly guess the significance it represented. Otherwise, it would not be placed at the third level of Qing Feng Palace by Martial Emperor Qing Feng as the reward for passing the test.
However, now that the door to the fourth level of the Qing Feng Palace was opened, the silver key that was the reward of Qing Feng Palace’s third level had yet to appear. This made her incredibly impatient.
At this moment, another light rumble resonated by Feng Tian Wu’s ears.
In the next second, she saw a blue brick nearby on the floor that was illuminated by the light shining down from the fourth level of the Qing Feng Palace, it suddenly quivered violently before rising up from the ground.
With a lift of her hand, Feng Tian Wu took the brick.
A simple and unsophisticated small box appeared before her eyes.
The moment Feng Tian Wu took hold of the little box, she opened it right away. The item contained in the little box entered her sight, and her eyes lit up. A meaningful smile crept up on her face instantly.
There was a crescent-shaped key lying quietly in the box that she opened.
“The shape’s exactly the same except for the color.” At the same time, Feng Tian Wu took out another crescent-shaped copper key, it contrasted sharply with the silver key in the box.
“The fourth level!” The moment Feng Tian Wu got her hands on the silver key, she did not waste any more time idling at the third level of the Qing Feng Palace. Soaring up into the sky, she landed firmly on the fourth level of Qing Feng Palace.
As Feng Tian Wu climbed up to the fourth level of Qing Feng Palace, many people similarly passed the test at the third level and activated the entrance that led to the fourth level as well.
“This is the silver key? It looks exactly the same with the copper key!” Peng Bao’s eyes lit up when he looked at the crescent-shaped key in his hand.
Apart from Peng Bao, there were many other people who had also obtained their own silver key and successfully ascended to the fourth level of Qing Feng Palace as well.
Each and every one of them was at a different place.
As they continued to climb up, the distance between them gradually became smaller and smaller.
At the first level of Qing Feng Palace, it was one out of four. It meant that only one out of four people would be able to climb up to the second level of Qing Feng Palace.
In the second level of Qing Feng Palace, it was one out of three.
In the third level of Qing Feng Palace, it was one out of three.
Based on this, among the group of people who entered Qing Feng Palace, only one out of eight people could successfully move on to the fourth level.
Those who stepped on to the fourth level would have to eliminate the other seven people.
“What’s there at the fourth level?” After Duan Ling Tian had obtained the silver key, he left the third level of Qing Feng Palace that had two bodies lying on the ground and successfully climbed up to the fourth level.
He still found it peculiar when he thought about the experience he went through at the third level.
This was because the test he had gone through at Qing Feng Palace’s third level was much easier compared to the test he went through at the second level.
The strongest puppet he came across at the third level had a strength of one thousand ancient horned dragons once it was fully unleashed.
It was much weaker compared to the giant wooden puppet that he encountered at the second level of Qing Feng Palace.
“Perhaps, the test at the third level is easier than the one in the second level because I still need to kill another two young powerhouses to use their lives as a blood sacrifice and open the entrance that leads to the fourth level.” The more Duan Ling Tian thought about it, the more certain he became.
“Congratulations, young man… If you pass the test in the fourth level of Qing Feng Palace, you’ll be able to obtain the golden key and another reward as well!” Martial Emperor Qing Feng’s voice entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears once again through Polyphony Formation.
“Just like I thought! There’s a golden key after all! If I can get my hands on it, it means I’ve successfully gathered all three keys of gold, silver, and copper. Could it be that these three keys are used to unlock something?” Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself as he speculated.
Soon after, the test on the fourth level of Qing Feng Palace began.
The test on this level was not fighting some sculptures, wooden figures or puppets. Instead, one had to go head-to-head with the endless Nature Energy in the long corridor.
The Nature Energy included Wind, Fire, Water, Thunder, and Earth Energy.
At this moment, the energy swept through the offensive Inscription Formation and obstructed Duan Ling Tian from moving forward. It would not allow him to pass through easily.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Duan Ling Tian ran as his Origin Energy soared from his body with four types of Concepts following closely behind. From the very beginning to the end, his hands did not idle at all.
Punches and palms thrust out and pushed back the gusts of Nature Energy that rushed toward him like a fierce flood and savage beasts.
The strongest among these Nature Energy only had the Ninth Level Concept Fragments in the Inscription Formation, it was about the strength of one thousand ancient horned dragons.
Originally, the energy was nothing to Duan Ling Tian, but the Nature Energy filled up almost the entire long corridor. Although it was just a matter of time before he eventually passed through, there was no doubt it was a waste of time.
