Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“It’s said that the existence of the Saint Martial Secret Zones mostly rely on Formations, and these Formations also need an endless stream of energy as support,” Wang Fei Xuan continued saying, “As far as I know, the Saint-Martial Secret Zones’ foundations will also accumulate a large amount of Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy. Every few years, it’ll open at a certain time. This is also the moment when the Saint Martial Secret Zones open. It’s precisely because of this the Saint Martial Secret Zones will only be opened every few years.”
Duan Ling Tian finally understood.
“Moreover, in the Saint Martial Secret Zones, there are also many items that even a powerhouse who has surpassed the Eminent Saint Stage wants!” When Wang Fei Xuan’s sentence reached here, her breathing also began to quicken.
“Items that even a powerhouse who has surpassed the Eminent Saint Stage wants?!” When Duan Ling Tian heard her words, he was shocked as well.
“Yes.” Wang Fei Xuan nodded.
“Like what?” Duan Ling Tian was extremely curious. He really could not figure out what exactly was inside the Saint Martial Secret Zones that only Saint Stage geniuses below 40 years old could enter that would attract powerhouses that had surpassed the Eminent Saint Stage.
“Divine Abilities!” Wang Fei Xuan spat out two words in a tone that was neither hurried nor slow as she looked at Duan Ling Tian.
Upon hearing these words, even Duan Ling Tian could not help but feel stunned. Perhaps, the former him might not know what Divine Abilities were, but after he had consolidated the embryonic form of the Golden Crow’s Wings some time ago, he had already learned what the Divine Abilities were.
The Divine Ability were techniques that only a powerhouse at the Divine Saint Stage or above could master. It was far superior compared to martial tactics.
Naturally, although most of the Divine Saint Stage powerhouses could master Divine Abilities, 90% of the Divine Abilities they mastered were Divine Abilities that were worthless during actual battles.
For example, the Duplicated Embodiment that almost every Divine Saint Stage Dao Cultivators had mastered. Other than being a ‘protective talisman’ for the juniors, it had no other functions at all. ( NovelFull )
“It’s normal for you to not have heard of Divine Abilities. It’s a technique that only a powerhouse at the Divine Saint Stage or above can master.” When Wang Fei Xuan saw Duan Ling Tian was stunned, she assumed it was his first time hearing about Divine Abilities. Due to this reason, she patiently explained it to him. “The Divine Ability that an ordinary Divine Saint Stage powerhouse masters are very ordinary… In the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land, only the Divine Ability that’s mastered by a powerhouse at the Exemplary Saint Stage or above would be able to live up to its full potential in an actual battle just enough to be deemed useful. If an ordinary Divine Saint Stage Dao Cultivator is willing, he’d be able to master a Divine Ability easily. That Divine Ability is called the Duplicated Embodiment.
Wang Fei Xuan explained everything to Duan Ling Tian patiently and even gave him an example. Based on her words, it was obvious she was revealing everything she knew about Divine Abilities to Duan Ling Tian.
“Naturally, in the Lower Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land, there’s also a minority of Divine Saint Stage powerhouses who have mastered useful Divine Abilities. These Divine Abilities are either comprehended from the relics that previous powerhouses left behind or directly passed down. However, even if you encounter a relic or someone is willing to teach it to you, it also depends on your innate talent and comprehension. Not just anyone can master a Divine Ability!” Wang Fei Xuan continued to say.
“Then, does this mean there are relics that contained Divine Abilities in the Saint Martial Secret Zone?” Duan Ling Tian was not dumb. Based on Wang Fei Xuan’s words, he could guess what she was trying to say.
“That’s right.” Wang Fei Xuan nodded. “The relics the powerhouses left behind are the most valuable treasures in the Saint Martial Secret Zone… Although we can see the relics when we enter the Saint Martial Secret Zone, we can only memorize it since it’s almost impossible for us to comprehend it. These relics can’t be duplicated so even if we obtain it, it’ll be impossible for us to share it with other people. Only when one of us manages to break through to the Divine Saint Stage then only would we be able to master the Divine Ability and pass it down if we want to.”
Wang Fei Xuan continued speaking, “No matter which quasi third-rate force it is, they place such high value in the Saint Martial Secret Zone is mainly because they place an even higher value on the Divine Ability’s Relics inside. As long as one powerhouse among those who enter could break through to the Divine Saint Stage powerhouse and master a Divine Ability, then it’ll be possible to share the Divine Ability.”
“No wonder the Mystical Sky Mansion wants to recruit for so many disciples even though they’ve already had so many Saint Stage geniuses below the age of forty… As it turns out, this is their plan.” Duan Ling Tian finally managed to piece everything together.
Divine Ability Relic!
This was something that would tempt any quasi third-rate force. Due to the fact that only Saint Stage geniuses below the age of forty could enter the Saint Martial Secret Zones to look for Divine Ability Relics, each of the quasi third-rate forces would seize the chance before the Saint Martial Secret Zones open to recruiting Saint Stage geniuses below the age of forty.
Naturally, it was still difficult for quasi third-rate forces to obtain the Divine Abilities stored in the Divine Ability Relics inside the Saint Martial Secret Zones.
It was considered pretty good to have one person among all the Saint Stage geniuses who entered the Saint Martial Secret Zones to break through to the Divine Saint Stage. It would be almost impossible to ask for that person to also master the Divine Ability he had seen in the Divine Ability Relic several years ago.
Due to this reason, there were only a few Divine Abilities obtained from the Divine Ability Relics inside the Saint Martial Secret Zones that had successfully been passed down in quasi third-rate forces.
“In comparison to Divine Abilities, nothing else seems as important. I’m completely disinterested in the other items,” Wang Fei Xuan said as she looked at Duan Ling Tian.
“Get straight to the point,” Duan Ling Tian said as he raised an eyebrow.
There had to be a reason why Wang Fei Xuan came looking for him in regards to the Saint Martial Secret Zone. It was not difficult for him to deduce this.
When Wang Fei Xuan saw how direct Duan Ling Tian was, she looked at him and said anticipatorily, “I want to partner up with you.”
“Partner up? How?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
To be honest, he knew nothing about the situation inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone at all.
It was apparent Wang Fei Xuan was somewhat knowledgeable about the Saint Martial Secret Zones.
Due to this reason, he looked at Wang Fei Xuan curiously, wondering what kind of partnership she had in mind.
“A place filled with people will definitely have battles. It’s the same inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone.” Wang Fei Xuan seemed to know Duan Ling Tian knew nothing about the situation inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone. She instantly explained the situation to him. “For example, some of the Divine Ability Relics inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone would only allow one person to comprehend it. In that case, people who encounter it at the same time will definitely fight over it. Only those who survive in the end will be able to comprehend the Divine Ability Relic. Naturally, it’s a little too early to use the word comprehend since it’s basically impossible for us to comprehend the Divine Ability contained in the Divine Ability Relic without being at the Divine Saint Stage. All we can do is just memorize the words, characters, and everything else in the Divine Ability Relic. Moreover, we can only memorize the content of the Divine Ability Relic, we won’t be able to duplicate it. Even if we forcefully do so, we’ll only be able to duplicate the item, not the content. It’s impossible to pass on a Divine Ability from a duplicated Divine Ability Relic.”
It was not difficult for Duan Ling Tian to understand this.
Otherwise, each of the quasi third-rate forces would not have recruited Saint Stage geniuses below the age of forty without restraint. All they wanted was someone at the Saint Stage who was a genius to enter the Saint Martial Secret Zone to break through to the Divine Saint Stage so that they could comprehend the Divine Ability contained in the Divine Ability Relic they encountered in the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
Once someone had successfully comprehended the Divine Ability, it also meant that he or she would be able to pass it on. Naturally, not everyone would be able to master the Divine Ability even if they were willing to pass it on, but at least there was hope.
“The Divine Ability Relics inside the Saint Martial Secret Zones are also separated into various grades and ranks. For those lower grade Divine Ability Relics, the Divine Abilities contained inside are basically useless as well. It’s at the same level as the Duplicated Embodiment and is useless in actual battles. A better Divine Ability would have a miraculous effect when it’s coordinated together with a martial tactic. A powerful Divine Ability would even grant a powerful ability to the powerhouse who has successfully comprehended it. Mastering that kind of Divine Ability is equal to mastering a very powerful and terrifying martial tactic!” When Wang Fei Xuan reached this part of the sentence, her eyes were burning with enthusiasm.
“A higher grade Divine Ability Relic is rarer in the Saint Martial Secret Zones, one would have to go through many trials in order to obtain them. Throughout this process, if one fails the test, one would be instantly kicked out of the Saint Martial Secret Zones.” When Wang Fei Xuan reached this part of the sentence, she looked at Duan Ling Tian. “For this reason, I want to partner up with you. If you and I work together, we’ll definitely be able to make it much further! It’s not impossible for us to get our hands on the highest grade Divine Ability Relic as well!”
The moment her words left her mouth, her gaze turned even more intense.
“What wishful thinking you have!” Upon hearing Wang Fei Xuan’s words, Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled. “Unfortunately, I’m not interested in partnering up with you.”
“YOU!” It did not cross Wang Fei Xuan’s mind that Duan Ling Tian would directly reject her. Her expression turned grim immediately. “Why are you being like this? I intentionally came to look for you so that we can partner up, but you rejected me without even considering it! Don’t tell me you think you won’t benefit from our partnership?”
“Well… I do feel that I won’t benefit much from partnering up with you…” Duan Ling Tian said bluntly after he sized Wang Fei Xuan up.
Put aside the fact that Wang Fei Xuan was merely an Early Refined Saint Stage Martial Cultivator, even if she was an Intermediate Refined Saint Stage Martial Cultivator, he still was not interested in partnering up with her.
In his opinion, bringing Wang Fei Xuan with him was akin to bringing an extra burden.
If he was an ordinary man, he would have definitely agreed to Wang Fei Xuan’s request without even thinking about it since it was difficult to reject a beautiful woman’s request.
However, to Duan Ling Tian who had two fiancées and one girlfriend, he did not care about Wang Fei Xuan at all. From the beginning until the end, he did not even feel attracted to her.
