Chapter 785: Ning Can
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Early on when Long Yun had just come over with Saber 5, Duan Ling Tian had already utilized his Spiritual Force to detect Long Yun’s cultivation.
Second level of the Void Interpretation Stage!
Even though Duan Ling Tian was slightly shocked by this, yet he wasn’t really surprised.
After all, no matter if it was Su Li’s master, Sword 13, or Long Yun’s master, Saber 5, both of them were members of the Foreign Lands’ Blade Sect.
Perhaps the Blade Sect was only a third-rate sect in the entire Foreign Lands, yet the cultivation resources it possessed was far from something the various powers in the ten Dynasties could compare to.
In the eyes of the members of the ten Dynasties, spirit fruits utilized by Void Interpretation Stage martial artists could only be chanced upon by luck, yet in the Blade Sect, there was instead quite a good amount of stock.
As the Vice Masters of the House of Swords and House of Sabers, no matter if it was Sword 13 or Saber 5, it wasn’t difficult for them to take spirit fruits utilized by Void Interpretation Stage martial artists.
So even if Long Yun’s cultivation had stepped into the second level of the Void Interpretation Stage, Duan Ling Tian wasn’t really surprised.
But if he was to carefully count it, then Long Yun’s improvement was undoubtedly the greatest amongst the group of young geniuses of their Darkhan Dynasty.
After all, during the Dynasty Martial Competition of the Darkhan Dynasty that day, Long Yun was only a seventh level Void Initiation Stage martial artist.
In other words, he’d only used a year of time to transform into a second level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist from a seventh level Void Initiation Stage martial artist.
Such improvement was sufficient to make anyone feel shocked.
“You… How could you possibly know?!” Duan Ling Tian’s voice transmission that entered Long Yun’s ears caused Long Yun’s face to go grim, and his eyes were filled with disbelief.
After all, he’d never fought since breaking through to the second level of the Void Interpretation Stage.
Moreover, logically speaking, besides his master, it was impossible for anyone else to know that he’d broken through to the second level of the Void Interpretation Stage a few days ago.
When faced with Long Yun’s terror and uneasiness, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t be bothered to pay attention to it, and he instead shot his eyes at the other people from the ten Dynasties.
Not long after, all the 100 young geniuses of the ten Dynasties including himself had already gathered together.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised as he muttered. “The Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties is about to begin…”
As if it was setting off Duan Ling Tian’s muttering, two extremely ear piercing howls of the wind suddenly sounded out from the direction of Skywolf Fort’s inner fort, and it sounded out briefly as it approached.
At practically the exact same time, two figures had appeared out of thin air in the air above the combat arena in the outer fort.
The two people that had arrived wore the green colored uniform of Skywolf Fort, and the eyes of the skywolf badges on their chests were both golden in color.
Their identities were obvious!
They were two Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort!
One of the Vice Fort Masters wasn’t unfamiliar to Duan Ling Tian and the others, and it was Feng Wei who’d just come looking for Duan Ling Tian two days ago with the Dongguo Clan’s Patriarch.
As for the other Vice Fort Master, his status in Skywolf Fort was clearly higher than Feng Wei.
When Feng Wei stood in the air, the position where he stood was faintly a bit behind this person, and it imperceptibly revealed Feng Wei’s reverence towards this person.
This was an old man with an emaciated face, yet his eyes flickered with bright lights, and it was entirely not like something an old man possessed.
“I’m the Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort, Ning Can, the person by my side is also a Vice Fort Master of our Skywolf Fort, he’s called Feng Wei.” The old man’s gaze flashed past everyone from the ten Dynasties, and he spoke with a calm tone and introduced himself and Feng Wei.
“Greetings, Vice Fort Masters.” Instantly, many people bowed and nodded in greeting.
Of course, there were a few people that refused to care.
These people were precisely Duan Ling Tian’s group that stood silently at the side.
After Ning Can smiled lightly to the others, his squinted eyes descended onto Duan Ling Tian’s group before flashing up and down on two people amongst Duan Ling Tian’s group.
“Sword 13, Saber 5… I truly never imagined that you two would actually come to my Skywolf Fort together, I hope you can forgive my breach of etiquette.” The people Ning Can’s gaze was on was precisely Sword 13 and Saber 5.
Sword 13 and Saber 5 were respectively the Vice Master of the House of Swords and House of Sabers.
Most importantly, both of them were already set as the next Masters of the House of Swords and House of Sabers, so they were the two great leaders of the Blade Sect in the future.
So even if it was Ning Can, he didn’t dare be the slightest bit disrespectful when facing Sword 13 and Saber 5.
“Old man Ning, go about your business and take it as we don’t exist… We’ve come here today mainly for the sake of testing the cultivation results of two brats.” Saber 5 glanced indifferently at Ning Can as he spoke.
“Saber 5, I’ve only heard that Sword 13 has taken a disciple… Could it be that you’ve taken a disciple as well?” Ning Can was slightly surprised as he asked.
“Greet him.” Right at this moment, Saber 5 looked at Long Yun.
“Greetings, Vice Fort Master Ning!” Long Yun didn’t dare dally when he heard his master’s command, and he hurriedly took a step forward before bowing to Ning Can.
“Haha… Not bad, not bad.” Ning Can smiled as he nodded to Long Yun, and then he looked at Su Li. “You ought to be Sword 13’s disciple, right? According to my understanding of Sword 13, normal people are utterly unable to enter his sights, let alone become his disciple… I can know from this that you’re surely extraordinary.”
“Vice Fort Master Ning, you’re too kind.” Su Li replied modestly.
At the same time, besides descending onto Su Li, the gazes of all the young geniuses of the various Dynasties including the Darkhan Dynasty had descended even more onto Long Yun.
They’d once seen Su Li two days ago, and they knew that he was the closed door disciple of an expert from a power in the Foreign Lands.
At that time, they were filled with jealousy and envy towards Su Li, and all of them wished for nothing more than to replace Su Li.
Now, when they found out that Long Yun had a status similar to Su Li, all of them looked at Long Yun with gazes that were similarly filled with jealousy and envy.
“Long Yun is actually the disciple of an expert from a power in the Foreign Lands! His and Su Li’s luck is really good, to actually be able to take an expert from a power in the Foreign Lands as their master.”
“They seem to only be from that Darkstone Empire, now they can be considered to be pheasants that have transformed into phoenixes.”
“Why don’t we have such good fate?”
Some of the young geniuses from the Darkhan Dynasty couldn’t help but whisper in discussion, and there were even many young geniuses from other Dynasties that joined in later on.
“So this is Long Yun’s fortuitous encounter!” Zi Shang’s gaze flashed as he muttered.
Before he’d encountered Duan Ling Tian and before Duan Ling Tian had made a name for himself in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, Zi Shang, who was similarly one of the five great young master that were most outstanding in the younger generation of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, had been acquainted with Long Yun long ago.
It was precisely because of this that when he saw Long Yun at the Dynasty Martial Competition of the Darkhan Dynasty that day, he’d guessed that Long Yun ought to have obtained some fortuitous encounters just like him.
The facts proved that his guess was correct.
It was precisely because Long Yun had taken an expert from a power in the Foreign Lands as his master that he possessed his extraordinary cultivation.
“Amongst the former five great young masters of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, it’s probably only me and Long Yun that have gone the highest and furthest… Crazy Young Master, Flame Young Master, and Sword Master have already been left far behind by us.” Zi Shang couldn’t help but sigh when he recalled the other three great young masters that were equally famous to him all those years ago.
“Firstly, on behalf of our Skywolf Fort, I, Ning Can, welcome everyone that has traveled far to arrive in the Ancient Desert City… No matter what the outcome of the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties this time is, our Skywolf Fort will give the ten Dynasties a gift for our first meeting!” Ning Can spoke in a clear voice.
At the same time, he looked at the representatives of the ten Dynasties. “Representatives of the various Dynasties, please take a step forward.”
Instantly, ten people that included the Emperor of the Darkhan Dynasty that stood in the sky took a step forward.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
At practically the exact same time, with a raise of his hand, Ning Can shot out ten flowing lights that flashed directly towards the ten people that had stood out.
The ten of them hurriedly stretched out their hands to grab it, and when they looked at their hands, all their faces instantly flushed red.
“Concept Fragment!” Someone couldn’t help but exclaim in a low voice.
“These 10 first level Advanced Concept Fragments are the gift of our Skywolf Fort to all of your respective Dynasties for our first meeting.” Ning Can spoke slowly.
“Thank you, Vice Fort Master Ning!” The representatives of the ten Dynasties took a deep breath and suppressed their excited feelings before thanking him.
Even though Ning Can had only given them the lowest Concept Fragment, even this lowest Concept Fragment was sufficient to assist one to comprehend Advanced Concept.
A Concept Fragment like this even had an over 50% possibility of producing a Void Transformation Stage expert for their respective Dynasties!
The gazes of the other people that knew what a Concept Fragment meant lit up now, and their breathing couldn’t help but become hurried.
“What extravagance! The Skywolf Fort gave out ten Concept Fragments as a mere meeting gift.”
“A Concept Fragment is the condensation of a Void Transformation Stage expert’s comprehension in Void Transformation Concept, and it’s extremely valuable! Concept Fragments have always been existences of legend in our Dynasties.”
“Yeah, the amount of Void Transformation Stage experts in our various Dynasties can be counted with the fingers on our hands, not to mention the Concept Fragments left behind by these experts after their deaths.”
Many people whispered in discussion.
In next to no time, those young geniuses of the ten Dynasties that had never heard of Concept Fragments in the past were moved after they understood what a Concept Fragment meant.
Presently, besides the two Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort, only Duan Ling Tian, Sword 13, Saber 5, Su Li, and Long Yun were able to maintain their composure.
Even if it was Feng Wu Dao and Feng Tian Wu, both of them were slightly moved now, as they were shocked by the Skywolf Fort’s extravagance.
The reason Duan Ling Tian and the others were able to be so composed was that they knew that a mere first level Advanced Concept Fragment was utterly nothing to the Skywolf Fort.
In next to no time, everyone returned to their senses because Ning Can had already started speaking once more.
