“A six stories tower that one could only enter after one has killed three wild beasts that could coordinate their attacks?”
“There are two piles of stones on every level?”
“Other than the two piles of stones, there’s also a gigantic statue on the sixth floor? And there’s a stone table that might be a Divine Ability Relic?”
The high-ranking officials present on the scene learned about six stories tower from Peng Cen in detail.
“If I remember correctly, it should be the Six Harmonies Tower! The Divine Ability that Duan Ling Tian obtained must be the Six Harmonies Golden Body!” In the end, Meng Qing, the Mansion Master, regained his senses first. He continued to say, “Although the Six Harmonies Golden Body can’t be considered as a high-grade Divine Ability, it’s not weak as well. Among the Divine Abilities in the Saint Martial Secret Zone, it would be ranked as a medium-grade Divine Ability.”
“To think that it’s a medium grade Divine Ability!” Everyone immediately broke into an uproar again.
Initially, they had thought since Ling Tian had only entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone for three days, it would be considered good enough if he found and obtained a low-grade Divine Ability Relic and Divine Ability. They did not expect Ling Tian would find and obtain a medium-grade Divine Ability Relic and Divine Ability.
“I’ve heard of the Six Harmonies Golden Body before. It seems like it’s a defensive Divine Ability!” Qian Ping Sheng, the Palace Master of Yellow Palace, chimed in.
“A medium-grade Divine Ability… Damn it!” After hearing that Duan Ling Tian had obtained a medium-grade Divine Ability, Zhao Deng and his son’s expressions turned even graver. Their hatred toward Duan Ling Tian also grew a lot.
“Not bad, not bad.” Zhu Lu Qi, the Palace Master of Heaven Palace, nodded his head in satisfaction. He was not stingy with his compliments.
“He has only entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone three days ago, but he has already obtained a medium-grade Divine Ability?” Standing by the side, Ku Mi could not help but feel shocked as well since there were only a few people capable of accomplishing something like that after they had entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone in the history of Azure Cloud Mansion.
Although Duan Ling Tian knew that news about him obtaining the Divine Ability from the Divine Ability Relic he found would be spread out by Peng Cen and the other man, it did not cross his mind that based on Peng Cen’s words, Meng Qing, the Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion, would be able to deduce the Divine Ability contained in the Divine Ability Relic he found was the Six Harmonies Golden Body.
“This Six Harmonies Golden Body could only be sensed but not explained. No wonder it’s said that one can only try to comprehend and master it after breaking through to the Divine Saint Stage. However, according to Elder Huo, I don’t have to wait until I break through to the Divine Saint Stage. I only need to break through to the Eminent Saint Stage to comprehend Divine Abilities.” Duan Ling Tian knew his situation very well.
As time passed, a day and a night went by. Duan Ling Tian had also successfully memorized the Six Harmonies Golden Body, including some information that could only be sensed but could not be explained.
When Duan Ling Tian withdrew his Divine Consciousness, he realized the gigantic stone tablet had already disappeared.
Apart from that, the Six Harmonies Tower he was in and the Formation that contained the tower disappeared as well. At this moment, he was back in the stone forest. He could no longer sense any Formation in the stone forest. It was obvious the Formations were all destroyed once he had memorized the Six Harmonies Golden Body and completed the mission.
“I wonder what grade this Divine Ability, the Six Harmonies Golden Body, that I obtained is? How good would it be if Elder Huo is here with me. He’ll definitely know what grade the Six Harmonies Golden Body is,” Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself as he left the stone forest.
“The most important thing now is to reunite with Wang Fei Xuan and Liu Jian… I don’t even know where they are or if they’ve already met one another. The Saint Martial Secret Zone is so huge, I’m sure it won’t be easy for me to meet them.”
More than twenty days had passed. Although Duan Ling Tian encountered many people, he had yet to encounter Wang Fei Xuan and Liu Jian.
Naturally, during these twenty over days, he had gained some things as well.
He had found another Divine Ability Relic and memorized the Divine Ability in it.
That Divine Ability was called the Flaming Clone. Although its name sounded quite powerful, based on Duan Ling Tian’s judgment, the grade was not as high as the Six Harmonies Golden Body.
Not only were the trials to obtain it much easier, but the content of the Divine Ability was easier to memorize as well.
Duan Ling Tian was not even certain if it would help much if he used it.
“There are only two months left. I hope I’ll meet them as soon as possible.” Duan Ling Tian wandered around the Saint Martial Secret Zone as he searched for traces of Divine Ability Relics.
During these twenty over days, although he came across many people, he did not attack them at all since he had no conflict with them. He did not have the thought that fewer people meant fewer competitors. Thus, he did not randomly attack everyone he met.
“Huh?” When Duan Ling Tian was passing through a dangerously steep barren mountain, he heard the sounds of fighting from the distant. However, the sound of fighting did not last too long before it finally came to a stop.
Duan Ling Tian curiously went over to the place.
With just a glance, he saw three people surrounding one person.
Duan Ling Tian remembered the person who was being surrounded. He was a new Heaven Palace’s disciple who entered the Mystical Sky Mansion at the same time as him. However, they had never had any interactions before.
The other three people were not Heaven Palace’s disciples.
Duan Ling Tian raised a brow and decided to meddle when he saw the new disciple was forced into a corner by these three people. The reason was simple. It was because the person being surrounded was a Heaven Palace’s disciple!
One of the three people surrounding the Heaven Palace’s disciple said, “We’re from the Zhao Clan. If you tell us where the Divine Ability Relic is hidden, we’ll owe you a favor. When we leave here, we’ll inform Vice Mansion Master Zhao Deng about this and let you join our Zhao Clan. If you join our Zhao Clan, you’ll be able to roam about freely in the Mystical Sky Mansion,”
“Boy, with your strength, it’s useless even if you know where that place is. There’s no way you’ll pass the trials to obtain the Divine Ability Relic. You might as well tell us, and the Zhao Clan will owe you a favor,” another person chimed in.
“Hurmph! A man is someone who knows how to recognize and adapt to a situation. If you don’t want to be kicked out like your partner, you better obediently tell us what you know.” Unlike the previous two men’s soft approach, the third person immediately took the hard approach.
“Kicked out like my partner?” That Heaven Palace’s disciple did not panic although he was surrounded by the three men from the Zhao Clan. Instead, he smirked coldly. “Kick me out if you want! I really want to see how you’re going to find that place after kicking me out!”
The three Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan did not expect this Heaven Palace’s disciple to be so audacious. Their expressions turned glum immediately.
Soon after, one of the Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan who had spoken earlier said again, “How about this? As long as you’re willing to share the location of that place with us, we’ll let you join our little team. When the three of us have found a Divine Ability Relic each, we’ll give the fourth Divine Ability Relic to you.”
Based on his words, it was apparent he had decided to take a step back.
“Who knows if the three of you will go back on your words!” When the Heaven Palace’s disciples heard his words, the smirk on his face widened.
“You… What do you want then?” The three Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan began to get angry. Faced with this stubborn Heaven Palace’s disciple, they really did not know what to do.
Initially, they thought they could kill the chicken to frighten the monkey by eliminating his partner. However, it seemed like the method was completely useless.
After thinking about it for a moment, the Heaven Palace’s disciples replied irritatedly, “Alright, I can join your little team, but I want the second Divine Ability Relic we encounter! Not only that, but all of you must swear by the lightning penalty oath, and no change of decision is allowed!”
“No!” When they heard his words, the three Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan instantly refused his proposal in unison.
“We can’t give the second Divine Ability Relic to you… We can only give you the third one at most. As for the lightning penalty oath, we agree to swear on it,” one of the Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan said, “This is the lowest we can go! If you’re still unwilling to share with us, we’ll have no choice but to eliminate you regardless if we can find that Divine Ability Relic or not!” The Heaven Palace’s disciple’s originally frowning face eased up immediately.
As he was about to agree to it, a voice suddenly sounded and interrupted him. “The Zhao Clan?”
Upon hearing the voice, the Heaven Palace’s disciple looked toward the source of the voice. With just a glance, they saw a tall and handsome approaching them from the distant sky. As he moved, he emitted a powerful aura that made others feel inferior.
“Senior Brother Ling Tian!” When Heaven Palace’s disciple saw the person who had come, he cried out in delight.
“Ling Tian?!” Upon hearing the voice coming from their backs, the three Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan who had yet to turn around paled when they heard the Heaven Palace’s disciple’s words.
Naturally, they were no strangers to this name! After all, this person had publicly slapped Zhao Ji twice and made himself a mortal enemy of the Zhao Clan.
The three of them turned around and looked at Ling Tian who was making his way over with a grave expression. Hints of dread could be seen in their eyes as panic filled their hearts.
Duan Ling Tian came to a halt in front of the three Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan. He looked at them coldly and asked, “Do you know where Zhao Ji is?”
“No, we don’t!”
“Senior Brother Ling Tian, we’ve no idea where Senior Brother Zhao Ji is!”
The three of them thought Duan Ling Tian was looking for Zhao Ji so they quickly replied truthfully, “Senior Brother Ling Tian, we’re not lying to you! We really don’t know where Senior Brother Zhao Ji is at this moment! If we know, we’ll definitely join him since there’s strength in numbers in the Saint Martial Secret Zone.”
Upon hearing their words, Duan Ling Tian was rendered speechless. They had misunderstood the meaning of his words.
“I’m not really asking where Zhao Ji is,” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze turned slightly cold. “I’m just trying to tell three of you that Zhao Ji’s already waiting for three of you outside!”
