Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Duan Ling Tian and Wang Fei Xuan entered the location of the Divine Ability Relic that Duan Ling Tian discovered a few days earlier.
With just a raise of her hand, Wang Fei Xuan had already killed a few wild beasts during the first trial. They were merely a few Early Pristine Saint Stage wild beasts.
“Looks like I was right!” Although they were only at the first trial now, they could already tell from the difficulty of the first trial that the Divine Ability contained in the Divine Ability Relic was not something worth looking forward to.
“You’re a jinx!” Duan Ling Tian rolled his eyes at Wang Fei Xuan. Naturally, he did not really blame her. After all, even if she did not say such words, it would not have changed the fact that the Divine Ability was a low-grade one.
The few trials ahead were also easily dealt with by Wang Fei Xuan. From the beginning until the end, Duan Ling Tian did not make a move at all.
It was just as they had speculated during their journey here, the Divine Ability contained in this Divine Ability Relic was indeed just a useless low-grade Divine Ability.
Although it was not to Duan Ling Tian’s liking, he still memorized it anyway.
It did not take them more than two days to exit the location of the Divine Ability Relic.
As Duan Ling Tian and Wang Fei Xian searched for another Divine Ability Relic, Wang Fei Xuan smiled mockingly as she said to Duan Ling Tian, “I think the Divine Ability Relic we’ll encounter next will be a medium or high-grade Divine Ability!”
The Divine Ability contained in the next Divine Ability belonged to her!
“You’re thinking too much,” Duan Ling Tian snapped at her, “I think the next Divine Ability Relic will contain a useless low-grade Divine Ability like the one we just encountered.”
“What? Are you trying to see who’s able to guess correctly? What? Don’t forget that I was right about your Divine Ability Relic… Humph! The next Divine Ability Relic won’t be able a low-grade Divine Ability Relic!” Wang Fei Xuan snorted. It was obvious she was joking around with Duan Ling Tian.
Three days later, both of them found another Divine Ability Relic. As it turned out, Wang Fei Xuan could only guess correctly once but not twice.
The Divine Ability Relic was also a low-grade Divine Ability Relic.
“Jinx! You jinx!” Throughout the journey, Wang Fei Xuan could not help but curse Duan Ling Tian whenever she saw him, rendering him speechless. It was just like the saying, ‘Only women and small-minded men are hard to deal with.’
Had she forgotten she was the one who had cursed him first?
After Wang Fei Xuan obtained the low-grade Divine Ability contained in the Divine Ability Relic, both of them continued to search for their next target.
As they were traveling, Duan Ling Tian quickly warned Wang Fei Xuan when he saw she was about to say something again. “I’m warning you. Don’t even think of obtaining anymore medium-grade Divine Abilities if you dare to curse me again, let alone a high-grade Divine Ability!”
When Wang Fei Xuan recalled the losses that both sides had suffered, she shut her mouth immediately. However, she could not help but glare fiercely at Duan Ling Tian.
As the saying went, ‘A job would be easy to complete if both sexes work together.’ Only a day had gone by, but both of them discovered the entrance to another Divine Ability Relic.
According to the rules of their alliance, this Divine Ability Relic would go to Duan Ling Tian.
‘I hope the Divine Ability inside this Divine Ability Relic is an offensive Divine Ability that’s at the medium-grade or above…’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself after they entered the location of the Divine Ability Relic.
In the Dao Martial Saint Land, the Divine Ability Relic was similar to the martial techniques but they were different from martial arts. The Divine Ability could only be cast under the condition that the martial techniques were cast first. Both of their effects would boost each other.
For this reason, if Duan Ling Tian managed to obtain an offensive Divine Ability, his strength would be further enhanced once he had broken through to the Eminent Saint Stage.
He could only cultivate the Divine Ability after breaking through to the Eminent Saint Stage.
Currently, he had three good Divine Abilities in his possession. The Six Harmonies Golden Body was a defensive Divine Ability, the Elementary Devouring Tactic was an assist Divine Ability, and the Golden Crow’s Wings was a movement Divine Ability.
Among the three Divine Abilities, the Six Harmonies Golden Body had the lowest grade. It was a medium-grade Divine Ability.
As for the other two Divine Abilities, he did not know which one had a higher grade. He would find out once he returned to his original body and speak to Elder Huo inside the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
However, he still subconsciously felt the Golden Crow’s Wings was of slightly higher-grade. After all, that was Elder Huo’s bloodline Divine Ability as a Three-legged Golden Crow.
Naturally, even if he could cultivate the Golden Crow’s Wings that Elder Huo had taught him to the highest stage, it still would not be comparable to the Golden Crow’s Wings that Elder Huo cast. This was because it was Elder Huo’s bloodline Divine Ability. It was only natural that the Golden Crow’s Wing he cast would be stronger.
Even then, it was still a Divine Ability that did not belong to any mundane planet. For this reason, Duan Ling Tian subconsciously felt that the Golden Crow’s Wings was the most powerful among the three Divine Abilities that he found useful.
Naturally, he was not certain. This was merely his speculation. He had a feeling the Elementary Devouring Tactic was not simple as well.
‘I can only know for certain after I leave the Saint Martial Secret Zone and speak to Elder Huo.’ When Duan Ling Tian thought of this, he no longer bothered with thinking about this matter.
The current problem was he still lacked an offensive Divine Ability.
Although he had inherited the Sword Saint Feng Qing Yang’s Supreme Sword Dao Mental Cultivation Method, the Sovereign Heart Sword, the Sovereign Heart Sword still belonged in the martial art’s domain to a certain extent.
The technique he cast using the Sovereign Heart Sword’s stages would also belong in the martial art’s domain.
It would be able to fight with other martial arts but not Divine Abilities!
‘It would be even better if it’s a sword-type offensive Divine Ability.’ Duan Ling Tian continued to daydream in his heart.
It was fortunate Wang Fei Xuan could not read his mind. Otherwise, she would have burst out laughing at him for daydreaming.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian and Wang Fei Xuan went through the first trial to obtain the Divine Ability Relic.
Duan Ling Tian’s expression turned grim immediately after he killed the wild beasts from the first trial.
Wang Fei Xuan’s face, on the other hand, had turned red. After a while, she could no longer hold back and burst out laughing “Don’t blame me for this! I didn’t curse you this time around!”
From the first trial, they could tell the Divine Ability contained in this Divine Ability Relic had to be another low-grade Divine Ability Relic. As it turned, they were right.
During their journey to search for the next Divine Ability Relic, Wang Fei Xuan claimed confidently, “Just you watch! The Divine Ability in the next Divine Ability Relic won’t be a low-grade one.”
“Fingers crossed.” Duan Ling Tian nodded and did not tease her. His bad mood that was caused by encountering a second low-grade Divine Ability had also vanished.
“Don’t worry! I’m sure when it’s your turn, the Divine Ability contained in the Divine Ability Relic won’t be a low-grade Divine Ability Relic.” Wang Fei Xuan felt a little unused to Duan Ling Tian not arguing with her.
“Whatever will be will be,” Duan Ling Tian replied indifferently with a smile.
“A-Are you okay?” Wang Fei Xuan came to a halt and studied him solemnly.
“How can I not be okay? Let’s go!” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled. Although he was desperate to obtain an offensive Divine Ability, he was no longer desperate after obtaining the low-grade Divine Ability earlier.
It was not because the low-grade Divine Ability had some unique ability. It was just that he realized how greedy he had become.
In the Dao Martial Saint Land, the Six Harmonies Golden Body that he obtained was considered not bad. It was a medium-grade Divine Ability.
However, the other Divine Ability, the Elementary Devouring Tactic, that he obtained was not only a high-grade Divine Ability. It was a one of kind high-grade Divine Ability inside the Saint Martial Secret Zone. At the very least, it was one of kind in the Mystical Sky Mansion’s Saint Martial Secret Zone.
The moment Duan Ling Tian thought of this, he finally came to terms with it.
As the saying went, ‘A contented mind is a perpetual feast.’
Even if he could not obtain any more useful Divine Abilities, he had reaped a huge benefit from the Saint Martial Secret Zone. Due to this mindset, he managed to regain his calm.
Naturally, Wang Fei Xuan was unaware of the change in Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts so she did not know the reason for his sudden change in behavior.
One must admit that Wang Fei Xuan was indeed lucky.
Two days later, both of them soon discovered another Divine Ability Relic. The trials to obtain the Divine Ability Relic were not inferior to the various trials in the Six Harmonies Tower and Six Halls Palace that Duan Ling Tian had been to previously.
The Divine Ability contained inside was a defensive Divine Ability like the Divine Ability recorded in the Six Harmonies Tower and Six Halls Palace!
Although this defensive Divine Ability was medium-grade, it was slightly inferior to the defensive Divine Ability Six Harmonies Golden Body that Duan Ling Tian had obtained previously. Naturally, the difference was not too wide.
Now that Wang Fei Xuan had obtained a high-grade and a medium-grade Divine Abilities, she was beside herself with joy. “Let’s go! Let’s search for another Divine Ability Relic!”
Soon after, they found another Divine Ability Relic.
This Divine Ability Relic belonged to Duan Ling Tian.
However, it was still a low-grade Divine Ability.
Duan Ling Tian was not too surprised by this, but Wang Fei Xuan, on the other hand, felt a little apologetic. “Should we switch the rules? All the low-grade Divine Abilities we encounter after this will belong to me until we come across a medium-grade Divine Ability. You can have that medium-grade Divine Ability then.”
Even Wang Fei Xuan could not stand to watch Duan Ling Tian’s bad luck anymore.
She was really worried he would encounter another low-grade Divine Ability after she had obtained her third Divine Ability that was at the medium-grade.
“There’s no need for that.” Duan Ling Tian rejected her good intention immediately due to the change in his mindset.
“Come on! Why are you so being so stubborn?” Wang Fei Xuan was unhappy due to his rejection. “Do you think you’re protecting ego by rejecting me? Do you think you so-called ego is actually more important than your future? In fact, sometimes, a Divine Ability that’s at the medium-grade or above can change your future, you know!”
Duan Ling Tian felt a sense of warmth in his heart when he heard Wang Fei Xuan’s words. At the same time, he could not help but smile as he asked, “Could it be that you think I’ve not obtained any Divine Abilities at the medium-grade or above before I met you?”
