Chapter 1795: The Advanced Devouring Tactic?!
When Feng Bu Yi learned the young man before him had a master from the Upper Province, he knew he had to tread with caution even if he was from the Mountainshade Black Market. He was not surprised by this outcome because he had already been mentally prepared for it.
‘Since this Ling Tian will be leaving the Mystical Sky Mansion and the Lower Province within three years’ time, he won’t be a threat to our Mountainshade Black Market,’ Feng Bu Yi thought to himself. He glanced at Duan Ling Tian indifferently before he left immediately.
According to the original order from the Leader of the Mountainshade Black Market, if Ling Tian was unwilling to join the Mountainshade Black Market, he would have to kill him to avoid trouble in the future. However, there was a change in circumstances, and he did not dare to rashly act. After all, Ling Tian seemed to have a master who was a powerhouse in the Upper Province.
Hence, he would have to report all these to the Leader of Mountainshade Black Market’s before he knew if he had to kill Ling Tian or not.
Apart from Zhu Lu Qi, the Palace Master of Heaven Palace, whose expression remained gloomy, all the Vice Mansion Masters of Mystical Sky Mansion heaved a sigh of relief when they saw Feng Bu Yi left just like that and returned to their respective residences.
Before Zhao Deng took his leave, he glared at Duan Ling Tian with killing intent from the corner of his eyes.
Gu Li noticed Zhao Deng’s gaze and immediately said to Duan Ling Tian, “Junior Brother Ling Tian, since you’ve offended the Zhan Clan, please be careful in the future… Avoid going out if there’s nothing urgent. Do inform me if you have to go out, I’ll accompany you. If I’m there, they won’t dare to act openly against you!”
“Yes.” When Duan Ling Tian heard Gu Li’s words, his heart was filled with a sense of warmth. Although they did not know each other for a long time, they had become fast friends.
The appearance of Feng Bu Yi, the Deputy Leader of the Mountainshade Black Market was merely a minor matter after the closing of the Saint Martial Secret Zone.
The attention of the group of Mystical Sky Mansion disciples shifted quickly.
The rewards of the thirty people who entered the Saint Martial Secret Zone began to spread in the Mystical Sky Mansion. Wang Fei Xuan, in particular, attracted a lot of attention since she was the only one who managed to obtain a high-grade Divine Ability.
“I didn’t expect Wang Fei Xuan would to obtain a high-grade Divine Ability… Whereas Ling Tian whom I was most optimistic about didn’t obtain a single high-grade Divine Ability,” many Mystical Sky Mansion’s disciples exclaimed.
In their opinion, Wang Fei Xuan was like an underdog who appeared out of nowhere. She even became the direct disciple of the Palace Master of Heaven Palace. Her future and prospect were boundless.
After Duan Ling Tian returned to his residence after splitting up with Gu Li, he did not see Wang Fei Xuan for several consecutive days. She did not come looking for him like she usually did in the past.
“It seems like she’s pretty these days.” Duan Ling Tian was not surprised.
After all, Wang Fei Xuan was not who she used to be. Not only did she obtain the high-grade Divine Ability, the Thousand Illusory Shadows, but she even became a direct disciple of the Palace Master of Heaven Palace.
“However, something feels strange… I used to find it annoying when she kept looking for me in the past. Now that she has stopped coming, I find it strange.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and returned to his room in preparation to enter closed-door cultivation for some time.
He had enough rest in the past few days.
‘After this closed-door cultivation, I’ll need Senior Brother Gu Li’s help to search for materials to repair the fourth level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda… At that time, they should have dealt with the issue of the Rising Sky Mansion.” He did not bring this matter up to Gu Li previously because he knew Gu Li was going to the Rising Sky Mansion with Guardian Gu.
At that time, even Vice Mansion Master Zhao Deng and Zhao Deng’s father, the other Guardian of the Mystical Sky Mansion would be going as well.
Moreover, even Mansion Master Meng Qing would be going to the Rising Sky Mansion.
They would not be going to the Rising Sky Mansion as guests. This was because of the top-tier Devil Dao Cultivation Method that contained the Soul Congregation technique that the Young Mansion Master of Rising Sky Mansion possessed.
‘I was thinking about killing Xu Jing after he has recovered. However, it seems that he won’t be able to survive that long now,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
He did not think Xu Jing would survive.
Once the Mystical Sky Mansion managed to obtain the top-tier Devil Daoo Cultivation Method from Xu Jing, he would lose his value and lose his chance at survival.
He did not consider the chances of whether the Mystical Sky Mansion would succeed or not. If Mansion Master Meng Qing personally made a move and still could not take down a fourth-rate force, then Mystical Sky Mansion did not deserve to be called a third-rate force.
Perhaps, Mystical Sky Mansion was not as strong as the Mountainshade Black Market or the Azure Cloud Mansion, but it was still not something a fourth-rate force could compare to.
After closing his door and entering the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda, Duan Ling Tian immediately looked for Elder Huo to ask about the grade of the Divine Ability, the Golden Crow’s Wings. “What grade is the Golden Crow’s Wings that you taught me previously? How does it fare compared to the Divine Abilities from this world?”
Currently, apart from the Golden Crow’s Wings, he had also obtained several other Divine Abilities. Naturally, most of them were low-grade Divine Abilities. He only had three useful Divine Abilities.
The three useful Divine Abilities were the Six Harmonies Golden Body, the high-grade Divine Abilities, the Elementary Devouring Tactic and the Otherworldly Celestial.
Among the three Divine Abilities, the strongest was naturally the Elementary Devouring Tactic, followed by the Otherworldly Celestial and the Six Harmonies Golden Body.
“To compare it with the Divine Abilities from this world, I must first understand the Divine Abilities here before I can give you a fair answer,” Elder Huo said.
Duan Ling Tian nodded and mentioned the Elementary Devouring Tactic and Otherworldly Celestial.
However, once he mentioned the Elementary Devouring Tactic, Elder Huo quickly interrupted him, “Are you sure the Divine Ability you obtained is the Elementary Devouring Tactic?”
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. He had no idea why Elder Huo would suddenly lose his composure. Was there something wrong?
Elder Huo took a deep breath and slowly said, “Describe the Elementary Devouring Tactic to me.”
Duan Ling Tian set his curiosity aside and began to describe the Divine Ability, the Elementary Devouring Tactic, to Elder Huo without missing any details.
“It’s really the Elementary Devouring Tactic!”
After listening to Duan Ling Tian’s description, Elder Huo fell momentarily silent before his eyes brightened. This gave Duan Ling Tian a shock. “Elder Huo, you… Based on your words, you seem to know the Elementary Devouring Tactic?”
“This Elementary Devouring Tactic is a really remarkable Divine Ability!”
Elder Huo looked at Duan Ling Tian and said honestly, “In terms of grade, it’s slightly inferior to the Golden Crow’s Wings that I taught you. However, that’s only the case if it’s cast by someone from the Golden Crow Clan. Otherwise, I would say the Golden Crow’s Wings you cast is the same grade as it.”
“Same grade?” Although Elder Huo said it was only the same grade if Duan Ling Tian cast the Golden Crow’s Wing, he was still stunned.
Even if he was not a part of the Golden Crow Clan and could not use the Golden Crow’s Wings to its full potential, it was still a Divine Ability from the Devata Realm. It was not something the Divine Abilities from the mundane world could compare to.
How could he not feel shocked when he found out the Elementary Devouring Tactic he obtained was not inferior to the Golden Crow’s Wings?
Elder Huo stared at Duan Ling Tian with a burning gaze as he asked curiously, “How did you obtain the Elementary Devouring Tactic?”
Duan Ling Tian instantly recounted his experience in the Abyssal Swamp when he heard Elder Huo’s question.
“I didn’t think the mundane world would have the Elementary Devouring Tactic… The Elementary Devouring Tactic is extremely remarkable even in the Devata Realm! There’s only a handful of people who have mastered it!” Elder Huo exclaimed.
Although Duan Ling Tian already knew the Elementary Devouring Tactic was remarkable, he was still surprised when he heard Elder Huo’s words. “The Elementary Devouring Tactic is also a remarkable Divine Ability in the Devata Realm?”
“Yes.” Elder Huo nodded. “The Elementary Devouring Tactic is also a very famous Divine Ability in the Devata Realm… In addition to its extraordinary ability, it is, more importantly, the foundation of the Advanced Devouring Tactic. One must master it before they can even attempt to cultivate or master the Advanced Devouring Tactic.”
“The Advanced Devouring Tactic?” Duan Ling Tian was dumbfounded. “There’s an Advanced Devouring Tactic?”
“Naturally.” Elder Huo nodded yet again as his eyes contained hints of respect. “The Advanced Devouring Tactic is a top-tier Divine Ability in the Devata Realm… The owner of this Divine Ability is one of the Overlords in the Devata Realm! His strength could be considered to be in the top three in the Devata Realm!”
Once Elder Huo finished his sentence, Duan Ling Tian gasped involuntarily.
The Advanced Devouring Tactic was a top-tier Divine Ability in the Devata Realm?
Moreover, the owner of the Advanced Devouring Tactic was one of the Overlords from the Devata Realm? His strength could be considered to be in the top three among all the Overlords in the Devata Realm?
Although the information Elder Huo had revealed to him was not much, every one of it was earth-shattering news to Duan Ling Tian.
“Rumor has it that the Elementary Devouring Tactic is derived from the Advanced Devouring Tactic… And the person who created the Elementary Devouring Tactic is the same powerhouse.”
Even Elder Huo was respectful and filled with admiration when he spoke about that powerhouse.
“I didn’t expect the Elementary Devouring Tactic I obtained has such a shocking backstory,” Duan Ling Tian commented.
“However, I mainly relied on the Sun True Origin to obtain the Elementary Devouring Tactic… In that regard, I have to thank you, Elder Huo. If it wasn’t for you enlightening me and helping me to cultivate the Sun True Origin, I wouldn’t have made it through the Abyssal Swamp’s trials and obtain the Divine Ability, the Elementary Devouring Tactic.” Duan Ling Tian looked at Elder Huo in gratitude.
The first few trials in the Abyssal Swamp was still alright. One would be able to pass the trials as long as one’s strength was at the Eminent Saint Stage.
However, even a powerhouse at the Divine Saint Stage, Exemplary Saint Stage or even the Quintessential Saint Stage might not be able to pass the final trial, let alone an Eminent Saint Stage powerhouse.
This was because the opponent from that trial would raise or lower his cultivation base accordingly to the level of the challenger!
