Chapter 1790: Sword-type High-Grade Divine Ability
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Wang Fei Xuan was stunned when she heard Duan Ling Tian’s words.
When she met him, he had already been in the Saint Martial Secret Zone for about two months. It was almost impossible for him to not obtain any Divine Ability Relics with his strength. In fact, most of the Divine Ability Relics they found was discovered by Duan Ling Tian.
There was even one moment when she thought of ripping his eyes out just to see how different they were. Why were they able to detect Divine Ability Relics so easily?
“Hurmph! Since you don’t appreciate my good intentions, there’s nothing for me to say anymore.” Wang Fei Xuan snorted and no longer said anything. However, she could not help but think to herself, ‘I want to see regretful expression later if the Divine Ability contained in the next Divine Ability Relic is another medium-grade or higher Divine Ability.’
The Divine Ability contained in the next Divine Ability Relic belonged to Wang Fei Xuan.
Perhaps, she was really lucky. The Divine Ability contained in the next Divine Ability Relic was indeed a medium-grade Divine Ability. Not only that, it was an offensive Divine Ability that was known as the Deadly Flowers!
“What? Are you feeling regretful now?” Wang Fei Xuan asked Duan Ling Tian after she memorized the Divine Ability.
“There’s nothing for me to regret.” Duan Ling Tian smiled nonchalantly. Perhaps, the former him might have felt regretful thinking why the offensive Divine Ability did not belong to him.
However, his mindset had changed, and he had already come to terms with things.
The Divine Ability contained in the next Divine Ability Relic belonged to Duan Ling Tian. Perhaps, he had really bad luck because it was another low-grade Divine Ability Relic.
The Divine Ability contained in the next Divine Ability Relic belonged to Wang Fei Xuan. This time, her luck was not so good either since she also obtained a low-grade Divine Ability.
When they encountered another Divine Ability Relic and entered it, Wang Fei Xuan remarked, “I think this will be the last Divine Ability Relic we’ll be able to enter… After four days, the Saint Martial Secret Zone will forcefully send us out!”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. There were only four days left. They only had enough time to enter the location of one more Divine Ability Relic.
“This will be our last Divine Ability Relic. I really hope it’s a medium-grade or higher Divine Ability,” Wang Fei Xuan said as she glanced at Duan Ling Tian.
As it turned out, the Divine Ability contained in this Divine Ability Relic just so happened to be Duan Ling Tian’s.
“Let’s hope so.” Duan Ling Tian nodded calmly as though it did not matter to him what grade the Divine Ability inside was.
Wang Fei Xuan no longer said anything when she saw the person involved did not seem worried.
However, when they faced their first trial, she was completely taken aback. “How are they so strong?!” Even Wang Fei Xuan who was at the Intermediate Refined Saint Stage could not pass the first trial.
The difficulty of this trial was even more difficult than the first trial where she obtained her high-grade movement Divine Ability, the Thousand Illusory Shadows.
“High-grade Divine Ability?” Wang Fei Xuan muttered as she took a deep breath.
“What good luck!” Duan Ling Tian smiled as he strode out.
The trial that Wang Fei Xuan failed to pass was nothing to him. It did not take him more than twenty breaths to kill all the wild beasts in the first trial.
Subsequently, he began to move ahead to the next trial.
Compared to the trials where Wang Fei Xuan obtained her high-grade movement ability, the Thousand Illusory Shadows, the trials ahead were much more difficult.
This made Duan Ling Tian and Wang Fei Xuan even more certain that the Divine Ability contained in this Divine Ability Relic was most likely a high-grade Divine Ability!
As Duan Ling Tian faced the next trial, he appeared in another sword shrine. He thought to himself, ‘Don’t tell me it’s really a sword-type high-grade Divine Ability?’
The previous few trials had taken place in various sword shrines as well. Naturally, they were all different sword shrines.
The trial in each sword shrine was completely different from one another. Not only that, but it was extremely difficult to pass as well. At the very least, Wang Fei Xuan did not have the confidence to enter at all.
However, to Duan Ling Tian who had entered the Abyssal Swamp that housed the Divine Ability Relic and obtained the one and only high-grade Divine Ability, the Elementary Devouring Tactic, in the Mystical Sky Mansion’s Saint Martial Secret Zone, these trials were nothing. He passed all of them easily.
The trials he had gone through in the Abyssal Swamp were much more difficult than this.
“The high-grade Divine Ability contained inside this Divine Ability Relic is surely not as good as the Elementary Devouring Tactic. However, it should be more powerful than the high-grade movement Divine Ability, the Thousand Illusory Shadows, that she obtained earlier!” This could be seen from the difficulty of the trials.
“Looks like your luck has gathered together to form a huge one,” Wang Fei Xuan mused with an envious expression on her face.
Duan Ling Tian smiled and did not say anything as he continued to face the next trial.
Although he had changed his mindset, he obviously would not reject such a high-grade Divine Ability that was placed in front of him.
“This is the final trial. I’ll finally find out what kind of Divine Ability is contained in this Divine Ability Relic,” Wang Fei Xuan said as they entered the location of the final trial.
The final trial of every Divine Ability Relic would be a fight with an opponent that mastered the Divine Ability.
After defeating the opponent, one would be able to obtain the Divine Ability the opponent had cast.
During the final trial, a white-clad young Sword Cultivator appeared before Duan Ling Tian and Wang Fei Xuan’s eyes.
He carried a sheathed sword on his back as he stood ramrod straight. He subtly gave of the aura as though he was one with the sword.
“Sword Cultivator?” Duan Ling Tian raised an eyebrow as a terrifying battle intent emitted out from his body.
He had cultivated the Supreme Sword Dao Mental Cultivation Method, the Sovereign Heart Sword, and he could be considered as a Sword Cultivator as well. Now that he had encountered someone who was also Sword Cultivator, it was only natural for him to feel competitive.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Just as Duan Ling Tian released the battle intent from his body, the white-clad young man’s figure flashed and vanished from his spot.
Naturally, he only disappeared from Wang Fei Xuan’s sight.
In Duan Ling Tian’s eyes, this white-clad young man had just flown up into the air at an extremely fast speed.
Despite his fast speed, it was only equivalent to the elite powerhouses at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage. It was far from being comparable to his strength.
Moreover, his speed was not even comparable to the woman in the final trial where Wang Fei Xuan obtained the Divine Ability, the Thousand Illusory Shadows.
However, the woman’s speed was only par with Duan Ling Tian due to the boost from the Divine Ability.
This white-clad young man, on the other hand, did not have any movement Divine Ability to aid him.
“However, in terms of strength, the woman can’t compare to him at all!” When Duan Ling Tian saw the powerful aura emitting out of the white-clad young man as he pulled his long sword out of his sheath, he instantly noticed his strength. He must be an elite at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage, and he had not even used his Divine Ability yet! Once he used his Divine Ability, his strength would be enhanced.
“His Divine Ability must be a high-grade sword-type Divine Ability! However, I wonder if it’s an offensive, defensive, assist or a movement Divine Ability?” Sword-type Divine Abilities were sorted into different categories as well.
Soon after, the white-clad young man cast the Divine Ability and answered Duan Ling Tian’s question.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
As the white-clad young man pulled his long sword out of its sheath, it seemed as though he did not move, but nine clones suddenly appeared around him.
The nine clones were identical to him. All of them were holding onto a sword and were staring at Duan Ling Tian.
“What a life-like clone!” When Duan Ling Tian saw the ten figures began to make their moves together, he extended his Divine Consciousness, but he could not tell which was the real one.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian discovered the ten figures had begun to charge at him one after another.
The three-foot-long blades in their hands even shot out seven-foot-long sword rays that were aimed at his head.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
The ten white-clad young men were like ten sword deities that descended from Heaven. Their speed was so fast as they wielded their sword and slashed at Duan Ling Tian.
“How fast!” At this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s expression had also turned grave. He discovered the sword rays that the white-clad young men shot out had reached the highest level a powerhouse at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage could reach.
Each slash of their swords was equivalent to the most powerful attack of a powerhouse at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage.
The white-clad young man in the lead charged at Duan Ling Tian as he pointed his sword at the Colossal Sword Bell that had formed around Duan Ling Tian’s body. When the strike landed, it caused to Colossal Sword Bell to tremble for a moment before it slightly dimmed.
Another white-clad young man charged out and another strike landed on the Colossal Sword Bell, turning it even dimmer.
The third white-clad young man wielded his sword and shattered Duan Ling Tian’s Colossal Sword Bell immediately.
Although Duan Ling Tian’s Colossal Sword Bell was equivalent to the defense of an Early Eminent Saint Stage Martial Cultivator, it could only withstand the attack from a powerhouse at the peak of the Refined Saint Stage twice at most. It was definitely unable to withstand a third strike.
Duan Ling Tian’s defense had shattered with just three strikes of swords.
After Duan Ling Tian had lost his defensive shield, the remaining seven white-clad young men continued to charge at him with their swords.
Under such circumstances, it was only natural that Duan Ling Tian chose to dodge.
However, no matter how he dodged, the swords in the hands of the seven white-clad young men were still aimed at him.
The seven swords slashed across the sky and left long sword marks in its wake. At this moment, the sky seemed as though it was going to be slashed by the seven swords.
Without any warning, the rapid sound of wind whistling resonated by Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
When he instinctively raised his head, he saw the three-foot-long blade in one of the white-clad young men’s hand had increased in size as it slashed toward him. Moreover, he was charging at him directly at a speed that seemed even faster than his own speed.
“This is the real body!” At the same time, Duan Ling Tian also noticed the other nine clones were quickly merging back with the original body.
As each clone entered the young man’s body, the energy in the sword of the young man’s hand was greatly boosted.
In the end, the speed the white-clad young man’s real body charged at Duan Ling Tian as he held onto the three-foot-long blade in his hand. His speed had even reached the speed of an Intermediate Eminent Saint Stage powerhouse.
“How fast!” Horror dawned on Duan Ling Tian.
The white-clad young man charged out with the sword in his hand at a rapid speed. Moreover, the force he wielded was extremely horrifying as well. It was far stronger than Duan Ling Tian’s strongest attack.
