Chapter 1765: Saint Martial Secret Zone
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“The entrance to the Saint Martial Secret Zone!”
“The Saint Martial Secret Zone is opening!”
When the gigantic whirlpool appeared high in the sky and the suction force surged down, most people shifted their attention away from Duan Ling Tian to the whirlpool in the sky. To be more exact, the entrance of the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
“This is the entrance to the Saint Martial Secret Zone?” Duan Ling Tian raised his head to look at the whirlpool high in the sky. The suction force that surged out of it seemed as though it was going to pull him in. However, it still would not be able to pull him if he did not allow it even if it’s force was not something to be trifled with.
It was similar to the others as well.
“I’m sure all of you must have heard some things about the Saint Martial Secret Zone so I’m not going to explain anything. I only hope that all of you will reap some benefits inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone. Deaths inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone are not real deaths. However, if you die in there, you’ll be sent out from the Saint Martial Secret Zone,” Meng Qing, the Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion, said calmly at a speed that was neither hurried nor slow, “For this reason, if it’s possible, I hope that all of you will treasure your own lives in the Saint Martial Secret Zone. Only by protecting your own lives will you be able to obtain more benefits. The Divine Ability Relics inside have a corresponding trial so this means the trials for a high-grade Divine Ability Relic would be difficult. Since the Saint Martial Secret Zone only allows people below the age of forty to enter, all of you only have yourselves to rely on!”
The moment Meng Qing’s words left his mouth, Zhu Lu Qi, the Palace Master of Heaven Palace, turned around and looked at the ten Heaven Palace’s disciples, including Duan Ling Tian. “In a while, after all of you are pulled in, you’ll feel as though your Divine Consciousness has withdrawn. Don’t panic. That’s because the Saint Martial Secret Zone is projecting a clone for you to roam inside! It’s precisely because of the clone that you won’t die for real in the Saint Martial Secret Zone. Naturally, once your clone dies, your Divine Consciousness will return to your body, and you’ll be sent out by the Saint Martial Secret Zone! Similar to what Lord Mansion Master has said earlier, all of you must treasure your lives inside if you want to reap any benefits. Now, go! Relax your body, and the Saint Martial Secret Zone will send you in one by one”
When Zhu Lu Qi finished speaking, many of Heaven Palace’s disciples relaxed their bodies one after another.
As soon as they relaxed their bodies, they began to rise up into the sky and disappeared into the gigantic whirlpool in the sky as though they had entered the mouth of a gigantic beast.
Naturally, not all of Heaven Palace’s disciples had entered yet. Duan Ling Tian, Wang Fei Xuan, Liu Jian, and Zhao Ji had yet to enter.
“What are all of you doing?” Zhu Lu Qi frowned upon seeing this.
“Hurmph!” Zhao Ji glared at Duan Ling Tian with a cold look before he relaxed his body and entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
“I heard that after we enter the Saint Martial Secret Zone, everyone will be scattered in unknown places. Before three of us reunite, try not to get into any conflicts with the others. Even if there’s a trace of a Divine Ability Relic, don’t investigate it alone,” Duan Ling Tian transmitted his voice to Wang Fei Xuan and Liu Jian as a reminder.
Since he had already decided to work together with both of them, naturally, he did not wish for them to get eliminated before he even reunited with them.
“Sure,” Wang Fei Xuan responded.
“Alright,” Liu Jian quickly responded as well.
Then, the three of them finally relaxed their bodies and let the entrance of the Saint Martial Secret Zone, the whirlpool that resembled the bloody mouth of a gigantic beast, pull them in.
After Duan Ling Tian was pulled in, everything turned dark before his Divine Consciousness trembled. It was extracted from his body by a mysterious energy that sent it away to an unknown place in just a flash.
Duan Ling Tian did not know how long had passed when he discovered his Divine Consciousness had returned to his body.
He opened his eyes and discovered the clone felt like his own body. Duan Ling Tian was surprised he did not find anything amiss. If it was not for the fact that his Spatial Ring was not present on his finger, it would have been difficult for him to distinguish if this was a clone or his real body. Everything felt extremely natural.
Before entering the Saint Martial Secret Zone, Duan Ling Tian had learned of some information regarding it. This included the Clone Projection, and how the Spatial Ring would not be present in the clone.
Since the Spatial Ring was missing from the clone, this meant he was not allowed to rely on external tools, and he could only rely on his own ability and techniques in the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
Naturally, if he managed to find any Saint Weapons or Dao Talismans in the Saint Martial Secret Zone, he was allowed to use them.
Moreover, whatever he obtained in the Saint Martial Secret Zone, for instance, Saint Weapons and Dao Talismans, would appear next to his real body when he chose to leave the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
At that moment when he returned to his real body, the items he obtained would leave the Saint Martial Secret Zone along with his body.
Naturally, if he died in the Saint Martial Secret Zone, the items he managed to obtain would not materialize next to his body.
In the Saint Martial Secret Zone, apart from dying, there were two other methods to leave the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
One was to remain standing, motionless, and communicate with the Saint Martial Secret Zone using one’s Divine Consciousness. The Saint Martial Secret Zone would then send one out.
The other method was to stay in the Saint Martial Secret Zone for a full three months. At that time, no matter where one was at in the Saint Martial Secret Zone, one would be forcefully sent out.
“This is the Saint Martial Secret Zone?” Duan Ling Tian looked around and discovered he was in a forest. All he could see were towering trees and dense bushes. Occasionally, some strange noise would sound from behind the bushes as though warning him that it was a dangerous place.
Accompanied by a roar, a black figure charged out from the bushes toward Duan Ling Tian at lightning speed.
With just one glance, Duan Ling Tian saw a pair of bloodshot eyes on the black figure. Upon closer inspection, he saw that it was a ferocious black wolf. Naturally, it was not an ordinary black wolf.
Based on Duan Ling Tian’s judgment, the speed that the black wolf was charging toward him was comparable to an Early Pristine Saint Stage powerhouse.
Based on how mindless it was, it was apparent it was just a wild beast. Naturally, a wild beast at this level posed no threat to Duan Ling Tian at all.
Duan Ling Tian did not make any move. With just his thought alone, True Origin surged out of his body and transformed into more than ten golden sword blades that swept across the sky, before leaving mortal wounds on its body.
The black wolf’s dead body crashed on the ground, sending dust flying everywhere.
As soon as Duan Ling Tian killed the black wolf, more roars resonated from all directions.
After a while, streaks of black figures leaped out of the bushes surrounding Duan Ling Tian. Similar to the black wolf lying on the ground, they were all wild beasts.
“Wolf pack?” Duan Ling Tian was slightly surprised. It did not cross his mind that the death of the black wolf would attract a pack of wolves. Moreover, the wolves in this pack were all at the Pristine Saint Stage as well. The weakest one was at the Early Pristine Saint Stage, and some were at the Intermediate Pristine Saint Stage.
However, to Duan Ling Tian, there was no difference whether it was the Early or Intermediate Pristine Saint Stage.
As the Sun True Origin surged out of his body, streaks of golden sword rays swept across the vast sky. The black wolves collapsed one by one, their blood forming a river.
However, the death of these black wolves did not scare them at all. Instead, it only served to make them go into a frenzy as they charged at Duan Ling Tian one after another.
However, no matter if they were in a frenzy, only one outcome awaited them. Death.
In the end, even the wolf king revealed itself. It was a black wolf that had a mix of golden fur. Its body size was three times bigger than those ordinary black wolves. Its cultivation base had even entered the peak of the Pristine Saint Stage!
However, so what if it was at the peak of the Pristine Saint Stage? With Duan Ling Tian’s ability that was even more powerful than an Early Eminent Saint Stage powerhouse, killing a wild beast at the peak of the Pristine Saint Stage was as easy as killing a chicken.
The battle had finally come to an end once he killed the wolf king.
“Are these real wild beasts or illusory wild beasts formed from an Illusory Formation…” Even Duan Ling Tian was uncertain about this since everything he had experienced earlier felt real. Moreover, even his clone felt exactly like the real him. Due to this reason, he became skeptical.
‘I’ll look around and see if I can find the others.’ Duan Ling Tian thought of Wang Fei Xuan and Liu Jian before rising up into the sky. Then, he flew above the forest and flew rapidly once he decided on a direction.
During his journey, many flying-type wild beasts attacked him as well, but all of them were killed by him in the end. Among the flying-type wild beasts, even the weakest ones were only at the peak of the Pristine Saint Stage so they were no threats to Duan Ling Tian at all.
“I wonder where are the others now?” When Duan Ling Tian finally left the forest, a grassland that stretched out as far as the eyes could see appeared in front of him. For a moment, he could not help but smile wryly.
How big exactly was this Saint Martial Secret Zone?
When the ten Heaven Palace’s disciples, including Duan Ling Tian, were roaming around the Saint Martial Secret Zone, at the entrance of the Saint Martial Secret Zone in the Main Mansion of the Mystical Sky Mansion, the other twenty Saint Stage disciples from the three palaces were entering the Saint Martial Secret Zone one by one as well.
After a moment, only the group of Mystical Sky Mansion’s high-ranking officials were left outside.
Qian Ping Sheng, the Palace Master of Yellow Palace, looked at Zhao Deng as he chuckled and said, “Zhao Deng, I heard there was a huge dispute between your son and Ling Tian… If they happen to meet inside, your son will most likely be doomed, you know.”
Although Qian Ping Sheng was also a Vice Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion, he was from Zhao Deng’s father’s generation. Due to this reason, he had always treated Zhao Deng like a junior whenever they interacted.
Zhao Deng narrowed his eyes upon hearing Qian Ping Sheng’s words.
To be honest, this thought did not cross his mind at all. Now that he thought about it, his heart was filled with worry.
