Chapter 1779: Winged Fiery Beast!
It had already been one and a half months since they entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
More and more Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples were being kicked out from the Saint Martial Secret Zone, but some of these eliminated Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples did not leave in a hurry. Instead, they also waited outside the entrance. They wanted to ask about the others and what they had gained. Apart from that, they also wanted to see how many people would be able to survive a full three months in the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
Once three months were up, everyone who was still inside would be automatically sent out by the Saint Martial Secret Zone. Otherwise, they would not be sent out unless they died in there.
“The Divine Ability Relic I found was just too ridiculous! There were two of us at the peak of the Pristine Saint Stage and one at the Early Refined Saint Stage, but we still couldn’t pass the sixth trial. The guardian beast of that level was at the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage! After we realized we couldn’t defeat it, we tried to flee. In the end, the other two managed to escape, but I was a little slow and was killed by the fierce beast with one slap!” One of the Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples let loose a torrent of words. A bitter smile and an unwilling expression appeared on his face when he reached the end of his sentence.
“Looks like the difficulty inside the location of the Divine Ability Relic you came across is pretty much the same with the one that I found. However, our little team is a little stronger than yours. Apart from me who’s at the peak of the Pristine Saint Stage, the other two are at the Early Refined Saint Stage. We passed the sixth trial with our joint efforts, but we failed the seventh trial.” The other Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciple smiled wryly. “If I’m not mistaken, that must have been the last trial! The trial was a puppet at the Mastery Refined Saint Stage. Although it’s not as powerful as a Martial or Dao Cultivator at the Mastery Refined Saint Stage, it’s not something two Early Refined Saint Stage Martial Cultivators could handle.”
“Mastery Refined Saint Stage puppet? All of you were killed?” The former asked the latter in shocked.
“No… They managed to escape, but I was killed.” The latter had a bitter smile on his face.
“Looks like we share the same unfortunate fate then.” The former smiled wryly as he sighed. Then, as though he was reminded of something, he looked at Qian Ping Sheng, the Palace Master of Yellow Palace, who was nearby. “Lord Palace Master, since the trials to obtain the Divine Ability Relics we encountered were so difficult, the Divine Ability contained inside must be a high-grade Divine Ability, right?”
This Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciple was from the Yellow Palace.
“High-grade Divine Ability?” Upon hearing his words, Qian Ping Sheng shook his head. “Based on your descriptions earlier, the Divine Ability Relics both of you encountered must be a medium-grade Divine Ability Relic. If it’s a high-grade Divine Ability Relic, the first trial is not something both of you will be able to pass.”
“What?!” Upon hearing that, the Yellow Palace’s disciple gasped. “The trials to obtain the Divine Ability Relic was so difficult but it only contains a medium-grade Divine Ability? Can anybody even get their hands on a high-grade Divine Ability at all?”
At the same time, the Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples who were all kicked out shifted their attention to Qian Ping Sheng too.
“In the history of our Mystical Sky Mansion, there are not many people who managed to obtain the high-grade Divine Abilities inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone… It’s said that if you don’t have a cultivation base at the Mastery Refined Saint Stage and above, it’ll be impossible for you to challenge the high-grade Divine Ability Relic’s trials on your own! It’s not even certain you can face the trials of a high-grade Divine Ability Relic even if you’re at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage,” Qian Ping Sheng added, “Naturally, that’s only if you go through the trials alone. If many people join forces, the cultivation base requirement could be lowered a little, but it can’t be below the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage. In the history of our Mystical Sky Mansion, the lowest cultivation base group that obtained a high-grade Divine Ability was a team of Martial Cultivators who were at the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage. They succeeded because the high-grade Divine Ability Relic they encountered was slightly inferior in regards to grade. In the Saint Martial Secret Zone, even high-grade Divine Ability Relics are separated into various grades and levels as well. In the history of our Mystical Sky Mansion, some of the high-grade Divine Ability Relics are completely untouchable.”
Qian Ping Sheng continued saying, “Naturally, those high-grade Divine Ability Relics are much superior in grade and contained a more powerful high-grade Divine Ability.”
The high-grade Divine Ability Relics were separated into various grades and levels!
The Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples present on the scene felt that they had learned a lot.
Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
At this moment, the whirlpool at the entrance of the Saint Martial Secret Zone suddenly whirled, attracting the attention of almost everyone on the scene.
“Somebody came out again!” Many Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples exclaimed.
At the same time, a figure also appeared from the entrance of the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
“Xiao Dun!” The moment this person came out, an Earth Palace’s disciple went up to him immediately, “How did you get sent out?”
At the same time, the three Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan standing behind Zhao Deng had a murderous gleam in their eyes.
They recognized Xiao Dun as that person whom they had surrounded and attacked inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone. It was exactly because of Ling Tian’s intervention that he was able to remain in the Saint Martial Secret Zone, and they were kicked out instead.
Now that they saw Xiao Dun, they were reminded about their sad past that took place two weeks ago.
The Earth Palace’s disciple who went up to Xiao Dun asked, “Weren’t you saved by Senior Brother Ling Tian?” This Earth Palace’s disciple was the one who was originally working together with Xiao Dun and was kicked out by the three Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan.
The clues that led to the two Divine Ability Relics that Xiao Dun knew about were both discovered by him.
“Yeah.” Xiao Dun nodded. “I was rescued by Senior Brother Ling Tian, but that was ten days ago. After I brought him to the location of the Divine Ability Relic, I went separate ways with him. However, prior to that, I managed to obtain one of the Divine Ability Relics and memorized a Divine Ability.” When he reached the end of his sentence, he smiled brightly.
Upon hearing that, the Earth Palace’s disciple smiled as well, “That’s great!”
However, when Xiao Dun looked at the Earth Palace’s disciple again, his smile faded. “Brother Zheng, I’ve given one of the Divine Ability Relics you discovered to Senior Brother Ling Tian. You won’t blame me, right?”
Qin Zheng, the Earth Palace’s disciple, shook his head and said, “Of course not! I’ve already been kicked out. Naturally, those two Divine Ability Relics were up to you to deal with. Since Senior Brother Ling Tian has helped you to obtain one of the Divine Abilities, it’s just right for you to give the other one to him.”
It had been two weeks since he was eliminated so he had already calmed down and come to terms with.
Whatever was supposed to happen would happen. That was how it was.
That was why when he learned that Xiao Dun had obtained one of the Divine Abilities contained in the two Divine Ability Relics, he was happy for Xiao Dun from the bottom of his heart.
“Ling Tian?!” The people present on the scene heard Xiao Dun’s words. Qian Ping Sheng, the Palace Master of Yellow Palace, even looked at him and asked, “What kind of Divine Ability did Ling Tian help you to obtain?”
The moment such words came out of Qian Ping Sheng’s mouth, most of the people shifted their attention to Xiao Dun.
This, included Zhu Lu Qi, the Palace Master of Heaven Palace.
Xiao Dun could ignore other people’s eyes, but he did not dare to ignore Zhu Lu Qi since he was the Palace Master of the palace he belonged to. If he wanted to have a good life in the Mystical Sky Mansion, it would depend on whether the Palace Master of Heaven Palace thought highly of him or not.
Under the watchful eyes of the others, Xiao Dun replied, “The Divine Ability I obtained is called the Rock Heaven Wall!”
Rock Heaven Wall!
The moment these words left his mouth, the group Vice Mansion Masters of Mystical Sky Mansion were shocked.
Even Meng Qing, the Mansion Master of Mystical Sky Mansion, who was sitting cross-legged far away had opened his eyes immediately and looked at Xiao Dun.
Xiao Dun’s heart leaped when he noticed Meng Qing’s gaze on him. He could feel the pressure turned heavier.
“Among medium-grade Divine Abilities, the Rock Heaven Wall is one that’s top-rated… It’s your luck you’re able to obtain the Rock Heaven Wall, and I hope that you’ll be able to break through to the Divine Saint Stage and successfully comprehend and master this Divine Ability in the future,” Qian Ping Sheng told Xiao Dun, “In the history of our Mystical Sky Mansion, although there were many people who had obtained this Divine Ability, very few of them managed to break through to the Divine Saint Stage so we’ve never seen anyone mastering this Divine Ability before, let alone passing it down.”
“It’s a top-rated Divine Ability among medium-grade Divine Abilities?” Upon hearing his words, Xiao Dun’s eyes lit up immediately. It did not cross his mind that the defensive Divine Ability, the Rock Heaven Wall, that he obtained was actually not an ordinary medium-grade Divine Ability.
“Congratulations, Xiao Dun,” At the same time, a few Heaven Palace’s disciples who were kicked out congratulated him one by one.
There were jealousy, envy, and hatred in the depth of their eyes.
Whichever Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciple who managed to obtain a medium-grade or above Divine Ability Relic in the Saint Martial Secret Zone and memorized the Divine Ability it contained would be heavily nurtured by the Mystical Sky Mansion in the future.
For this reason, every Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciple who entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone would be bursting with energy to obtain a Divine Ability Relic.
Although there were some people who had memorized Divine Ability before Xiao Dun, the Divine Abilities they memorized were all low-grade Divine Abilities.
“Congratulations, Xiao Dun.” At this moment, Zhu Lu Qi, the Palace Master of Heaven Palace, also smiled as he looked at Xiao Dun. This Heaven Palace’s disciple whom he did not pay much attention to appeared quite promising now.
“Thank you, Lord Palace Master.” Xiao Dun was overwhelmed by the compliments and glory.
When the disciples from the other three palaces looked at him, jealousy, envy, and hatred could be seen in their eyes.
The expressions of Zhao Deng, his son, and the other three Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples from the Zhao Clan had turned slightly grave as well.
In their opinion, that should be the Zhao Clan’s Divine Ability.
‘Ling Tian! Ling Tian!’ At this moment, whether it was Zhao Deng or Zhao Ji, the hatred they had toward Duan Ling Tian in their hearts had deepened even more.
“Rock Heaven Wall… If I’m not mistaken, you and Ling Tian must have entered the Six Halls Palace!” Zhu Lu Qi looked at Xiao Dun, and after he finished saying this, he asked again, “You said you gave the other Divine Ability Relic to Ling Tian. What are the characteristics of the location that houses the Divine Ability Relic?”
It was apparent Zhu Lu Qi also wanted to find out what kind of Divine Ability Duan Ling Tian would obtain.
“After we’ve entered the location of the Divine Ability Relic, the first thing that appeared was a swamp area. There were four ugly and disgusting wild beasts that appeared during the first trial.” Xiao Dun even described the appearance of the wild beasts on purpose.
When Xiao Dun described the appearance of the four wild beasts, Zhu Lu Qi narrowed his eyes while Qian Ping Sheng even exclaimed out loud, “Winged Fiery Beast!”
Winged Fiery Beast!
Meng Qing, the Mansion Master of the Mystical Sky Mansion, who was originally sitting cross-legged nearby immediately stood up when he heard Xiao Dun’s description.
