Chapter 1771: Divine Ability — The Six Harmonies Golden Body
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
If the khaki light around the gigantic statue’s body was a defensive technique of the Divine Ability, then this Divine Ability must be absolutely wonderful!
Although Duan Ling Tian did not use all his might when he slashed at the statue earlier, it was still equivalent the entire strength of an ordinary Martial Cultivator at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage.
However, the strike had been blocked by a gigantic statue at the Mastery Refined Saint Stage instead.
Naturally, Duan Ling Tian had also noticed although the gigantic statue had blocked his attack, the khaki light around its body began to dim as well. Moreover, its body seemed to become heavier, and its speed was decreasing as well.
‘It seems like this Divine Ability is powerful, but it depletes a lot of energy as well. When it blocked my sword earlier, it has almost used up its entire strength. Currently, it’s like an arrow at the end of its flight.’ The moment Duan Ling Tian thought of this, he slashed his golden light sword again with a flick of his wrist.
This time, he directly decapitated the gigantic statue’s head.
Now that its head was shattered, the gigantic statue crashed on the ground and lost its vitality immediately.
“Huh?” However, at the moment the gigantic statue collapsed, Duan Ling Tian realized the place seemed to be vibrating again as a wave of dense aura shrouded the floor he was on in just an instant. The vibe it emitted was ancient as though it had seen the vicissitudes of life.
“This is…” Soon after, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze landed on the space that was emitting the aura.
There seemed to be a crack in the air. Inside that crack, a gigantic stone tablet appeared out of nowhere. The stone tablet descended on the ground, causing the entire tower to vibrate a little.
The stone tablet laid on the ground, emitting an ancient vibe that was filled with the vicissitudes of life. It was as though it was trying to tell everything in its surroundings that it had existed for a long long time.
“Six Harmonies Golden Body? This is a Divine Ability?” When Duan Ling Tian’s Divine Consciousness tried to probe the stone tablet, he noticed a message was sent back to him from the tablet.
At this moment, he realized he was right about a Divine Ability Relic being stored in the tower. This stone tablet was exactly one of the Divine Ability Relics inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
“Looks like everything I’ve gone through earlier was just a test before I’m able to obtain it… The defensive Divine Ability that the gigantic statue mastered is none other than this Six Harmonies Golden Body. Although it’s called the Golden Body, the Divine Ability’s energy that covered the surface of the gigantic statue was khaki in color.” Duan Ling Tian also understood that it was exactly because the gigantic statue had activated the Six Harmonies Golden Body that his first slash with his sword was unable to break its defense.
“Even if a person who’s at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage has cast the strongest defense in the Earth Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic, he would still be unable to defend against my sword earlier. The gigantic statue, on the other hand, managed to withstand it by only using the True Origin at the Mastery Refined Saint Stage and the Divine Ability, the Six Harmonies Golden Body.” When Duan Ling Tian recalled the scene earlier, he knew the Divine Ability, the Six Harmonies Golden Body, was not something ordinary.
Just when Duan Ling Tian was about to memorize the Six Harmonies Golden Body, he heard a commotion that caused him to snap back to reality. At the same time, he extended his Divine Consciousness and looked at the entrance of the staircase.
After a span of more than ten breaths, three figures walked in one after another.
“What’s going on?”
“There seem to be two piles of stones on every floor. Does this place really contain the Divine Ability Relic?”
The three young men who climbed up to the final floor of the tower discussed among themselves.
Soon after, their eyes landed on the gigantic stone tablet in the distant.
“Could it be a Divine Ability Relic?” Somebody answered and three pairs of eyes lit up immediately. They instantly walked nearer so they could study the Divine Ability Relic.
“We meet again.” At this moment, an indifferent voice reverberated behind the three men suddenly. It was none other than Duan Ling Tian who had somehow appeared behind them.
Based on Duan Ling Tian’s words, it was as though he knew the three men before him. To be exact, it seemed as though he knew some of them.
When two out of the three men heard this sentence from behind them, horror dawned on them immediately.
“L-Ling Tian!” They were no strangers to this voice. It was Ling Tian’s voice. He was the strongest person among the younger generations in the Mystical Sky Mansion. It was also the Ling Tian whom they had escaped from previously.
That was right!
Two out of the three people were none other than Peng Cen and Hu Rui, the Mystical Palace’s disciples who had seized the chance to run away when Duan Ling Tian was chasing after Zhao Ji.
It did not cross their minds that they would meet Duan Ling Tian here.
“Ling Tian?” At the same time, the third person finally turned around and looked at Duan Ling Tian who was standing nearby in shock.
It was apparent he did not expect to meet Duan Ling Tian here.
“Both of you…” However, the man soon noticed Peng Cen and Hu Rui’s faces that had turned pale as though they were afraid. His heart jolted immediately as a thought popped up in his mind.
He immediately took a few steps back and distanced himself from the two men.
After he had taken a few steps back, he hastily explained to Duan Ling Tian, “Ling Tian, I’m actually not that close to them. I’m a Yellow Palace’s disciple. I just happened to pass by and was dragged along by them to explore this place.”
Duan Ling Tian glanced at him indifferently before nodding. Then, he turned to look at Peng Cen and Hu Rui again. “How brave both of you are! To think you dare to disregard my words just like that.”
Peng Cen and Hu Rui lowered their heads and could not come up with any reply.
Naturally, they were feeling extremely remorseful at this moment. If they had known Duan Ling Tian would find this place just by knowing the general direction, they would not have escaped.
When Duan Ling Tian saw the two of them keeping quiet, he was too lazy to talk to them anymore. With just a raise of his hand, two streaks of sword rays rapidly flew across the room and killed them. To be more exact, it killed their clones.
At the instant when their clones were killed, both of their Divine Consciousness also returned to their bodies before they were kicked out by the Saint Martial Secret Zone
Currently, only Duan Ling Tian and that Yellow Palace’s disciple were left on the highest level of the tower.
“You’re not going to leave? Don’t tell me you also want to leave together with them?” Duan Ling Tian asked as he glanced indifferently at the Yellow Palace’s disciple.
The Yellow Palace’s disciple had long been scared by Duan Ling Tian’s earlier actions. He did not expect Duan Ling Tian to decisively attack and send Peng Cen and the other man out.
When he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words, he immediately snapped back to reality and hastily turned around to head downstairs.
He only had one thought in his mind now, and it was to leave this place as soon as possible.
He did not dare to think of the Divine Ability Relic at all.
With Ling Tian here, he would not have a share at all even if it was a high-grade Divine Ability Relic.
After that Yellow Palace’s disciple left, Duan Ling Tian’s Divine Consciousness merged with that gigantic stone tablet again, and he began to memorize the Divine Ability contained in it, the Six Harmonies Golden Body.
When Duan Ling Tian was memorizing the Divine Ability, the Six Harmonies Golden Body, the group of people outside the Saint Martial Secret Zone noticed a commotion in the entrance of the Saint Martial Secret Zone again.
Soon after, they saw two people emerging from the entrance.
“Peng Cen? Hu Rui? Why did you t-two come out as well?” Upon seeing these two men, the Palace Master of Mystical Palace could not help but be taken aback.
These two people were disciples from his Mystical Palace. Both of their cultivation base had already entered the peak of the Pristine Saint Stage, and in terms of strength, they ranked at the top among the Mystical Palace’s disciples at the peak of the Pristine Saint Stage.
However, they had been eliminated in just three days. They were only half a day later than Zhao Ji.
“Lord Palace Master, we were eliminated by Ling Tian.” Peng Cen and the other man smiled wryly. At the same time, they glanced at Zhao Ji who was standing nearby, and they did not feel too bad anymore.
It was fortunate they were not the first one to be kicked out.
Seeing another person who ranked the lowest, especially someone at the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage, they did not feel too sad even though they felt regretful for being eliminated.
“Ling Tian again!” Upon hearing Peng Cen’s words, the place broke into an uproar again. “What’s that little fellow trying to do?”
The Palace Master of Mystical Palace looked at Peng Cen and the other man before asking in a deep voice, “Both of you have enmity with Ling Tian as well?”
“Lord Palace Master, before we entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone, we’ve never interacted with Ling Tian before,” Peng Cen replied bitterly.
“Then both of you…” The Palace Master of Mystical Palace frowned immediately. He thought he had good judgment. Although he had only seen Ling Tian before and had never interacted with him, he did not think he was someone who would create trouble for no reason.
When Peng Cen saw the crowd’s baffled expressions, he quickly recounted what had transpired between them and Ling Tian, including how they had escaped when he was chasing after Zhao Ji.
“Both of you are really… How could you just abandon him and escape just like that? If it was someone else, they wouldn’t have let both of you go as well.” The Palace Master of Mystical Palace shook his head and did not blame Ling Tian. If he was in Ling Tian’s shoes, he would have done the same thing as well.
It was not only the strongest of the species that survived, but the quickest to act as well.
This was the rule of survival. It’s nature’s selection.
Peng Cen continued to tell them when they encountered Ling Tian again, they saw a gigantic stone tablet that looked like a Divine Ability Relic.
“What?” When Zhao Deng heard Peng Cen’s words, horror dawned on his face immediately. “You mean… Ling Tian has already obtained a Divine Ability Relic?”
Zhao Ji who stood beside Zhao Deng had a terrible expression as well.
He was kicked out by Ling Tian only after three days of entering the Saint Martial Secret Zone. On the other hand, Ling Tian had already obtained a Divine Ability Relic so quickly!
He hated it!
He itched to shred Ling Tian into thousands and thousands of pieces.
“That should be the case.” Peng Cen nodded.
After Peng Cen’s confirmation, the crowd broke into an uproar again. “It has only been three days, but Ling Tian has already obtained a Divine Ability Relic?”
“I wonder what Divine Ability Relic it is!”
Soon after, the Palace Master of Earth Palace looked at Peng Cen and the other man as he asked, “Hey! Both of you! Tell us the characteristics of the place that houses the Divine Ability Relic!”
In the history of Mystical Sky Mansion, whoever entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone and obtained a Divine Ability Relic would have to follow the Mystical Sky Mansion’s rules and reveal the process of how they obtained the Divine Ability Relic.
So many years had gone by, and the Mystical Sky Mansion had also recorded quite many ways of obtaining various types of Divine Ability Relics.
If somebody went through the same process, they could use the record to deduce the type of Divine Ability that the Divine Ability Relic contained.
