Chapter 796: Heaven Defying Luck
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
Phenomenon of the heavens and the earth appeared abruptly in the sky above Lu Yong, and numerous lifelike ancient horned dragon silhouettes condensed into form.
First, 40 ancient horned dragon silhouettes appeared before another 30 condensed into form.
Third level of the Void Interpretation Stage!
Second level Intermediate Fire Concept!
That wasn’t the end.
Along with strands of material azure energy and violet energy leaping about within the flames, another five and three ancient horned dragon silhouettes appeared successively.
Fifth level Elementary Wind Concept!
Third level Elementary Lightning Concept!
A total of 78 ancient horned dragon silhouettes coiled down aggressively from the sky, and it brought out a type of visual impact to others.
This strength was still before the Darming Dynasty’s Crown Prince, Lu Yong, utilized a spirit weapon.
With a raise of his hand, a fan made of unknown materials appeared out of thin air in his hand, and the fan only possessed a frame and the leaves that covered it.
Along with the flames on Lu Yong’s body gushing into the fan, the fan was enveloped by a layer of flames and transformed into a flaming fan that ceaselessly flickered with scorching flames.
The energy of the heavens and the earth roiled once more in the sky as a group of ancient horned dragon silhouettes appeared, and if one looked closely, they totaled at 27.
Besides these 27 ancient horned dragon silhouettes, another 2,000 ancient horned mammoth silhouettes had appeared.
“The strength of the third level Void Interpretation Stage when completely exploded out is comparable to the strength of 40 ancient horned dragon! An amplification of 27 ancient horned dragons and 2,000 ancient mammoths… The spirit fan in Lu Yong’s possession is a grade three spirit weapon that’s capable of providing a 68% amplification!” Duan Ling Tian saw through the ability of the spirit fan in Lu Yong’s hand in the first possible moment.
Duan Ling Tian wasn’t surprised that Lu Yong possesses a grade three spirit weapon like this. At any rate, Lu Yong was the Crown Prince of the Darming Dynasty, so how could he possibly not possess a grade three spirit weapon to rely on?
“The strength of 105 ancient horned dragons and 2,000 ancient mammoths…” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils couldn’t help but constrict as he looked at the phenomenon of the heavens and the earth above Lu Yong.
With Lu Yong’s strength, not to mention he’d only comprehended first level Intermediate Wind Concept, even if he’d comprehended second level Intermediate Wind Concept, it would still be impossible for him to be a match for Lu Yong.
“Amongst all the young geniuses of the various Dynasties that I know of up until now, perhaps only Zi Shang is capable of defeating Lu Yong after he’s possessed by the incomplete soul within his body that seems to belong to a Martial Emperor Stage expert!” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but recall that Lu Yong had said Zi Shang didn’t kill him when he’d just made an appearance earlier.
Obviously, Lu Yong had fought Zi Shang, and Zi Shang ought to have allowed the incomplete soul to possess his body, allowing him to defeat Lu Yong with overwhelming might, yet he didn’t kill Lu Yong.
Of course, it wasn’t because Zi Shang was merciful that he didn’t kill Lu Yong, but was instead because he wanted to use Lu Yong to deal with Duan Ling Tian!
“How scheming of Zi Shang!” Duan Ling Tian’s expression completely darkened as he looked at Zi Shang, and his eyes flickered with a fierce light that seemed like it was waiting for a chance to swallow Zi Shang up.
At this moment, he even more urgently wanted to kill Zi Shang.
So long as Zi Shang wasn’t eliminated, Zi Shang would sooner or later turn into a great calamity!
“What? Want to kill me?” After he noticed the gaze filled with killing intent that Duan Ling Tian shot over, he revealed a brilliant smile on his face. “But unfortunately, you don’t have the chance… You’re bound to die here today at the hands of Lu Yong!”
“If you have another lifetime, then remember this properly… Don’t offend me, Zi Shang. I, Zi Shang, am not someone that you, Duan Ling Tian, can afford to offend!” As he finished speaking, beamed cheerfully, and he seemed as if he’d already seen the scene of Duan Ling Tian being killed by Lu Yong.
“Zi Shang, are you so sure that Lu Yong can kill me?” A talisman appeared out of thin air in Duan Ling Tian’s right hand, and it was precisely one of the three talismans that his father had give him that day, and he’d utilized one in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom in the past.
That talisman killed the Void Transformation Stage expert of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family.
Presently, only two of these talismans remained in his possession.
Truthfully speaking, he didn’t want to utilize the talisman on Lu Yong, as even though Lu Yong was the Darming Dynasty’s Crown Prince, as for as he was concerned, Lu Yong wasn’t worthy of him using the talisman.
It was no ordinary talisman, but a talisman that caused even Void Transformation Stage experts to be killed instantly when facing it.
The unwillingness in Duan Ling Tian’s heart to utilize this talisman on a mere third level Void Interpretation Stage martial artist was obvious.
“Nevermind… After I kill Lu Yong, Zi Shang will be unable to escape death! Using a single talisman in exchange for their lives, even though I’m still suffering a loss, I’ll be able to protect my life at any rate.” Duan Ling Tian consoled himself ceaselessly, otherwise, he was really worried that he wouldn’t be willing to throw out the talisman in his hand and annihilate Lu Yong.
“Hmph! Stop deliberately being mystifying! Lu Yong, kill him.” Zi Shang regarded Duan Ling Tian’s words as beneath his notice, and he shouted out with a light voice.
Lu Yong’s gaze locked onto Duan Ling Tian at the first possible moment when he heard this, and then his entire body seemed to have transformed into a bolt of lightning that flashed directly towards Duan Ling Tian.
“Brother Ling Tian, watch out!” Zhang Shou Yong’s face went grim as he shouted out explosively. Even though he knew he was far from being a match for Lu Yong, yet he still took out his gourd and intended to stop Lu Yong.
“You’re courting death!” Zi Shang grunted in a low voice as killing intent arose in his eyes, and then his entire body seemed to have transformed into a ruthless wild beast that pounced towards Zhang Shou Yong in a flash.
When facing Lu Yong who approached menacingly, Duan Ling Tian raised his hand that held the talisman, and he intended to toss out the talisman and directly annihilate Lu Yong.
Right when he was about to toss out the talisman, he felt the scene before his eyes shake, causing him to instinctively grab tightly onto the talisman in his hand, and he didn’t throw it out.
At the same time, the scene before his eyes went black, as if the entire heavens and earth had suddenly undergone some sort of unusual movement.
“Haha… I never imagined that my luck was so good!” In this instant, Duan Ling Tian completely came to a realization, and he understood what had happened.
Right when Duan Ling Tian’s delighted thoughts had just arisen within his mind, an expanse of light arose before his eyes, and he’d appeared in the sky above a vast combat arena.
“We’ve come out!” Duan Ling Tian revealed a brilliant smile as he casually put away the talisman in his hand.
Duan Ling Tian naturally knew what had happened when he saw everything before him.
When Lu Yong made a move against him with the intention of killing him and he intended to toss out the talisman to annihilate Lu Yong, the 44th person had been killed within the Illusory Purgatory.
Since 44 people had been killed and 50 remained, it also meant that the first round of the selections had come to an end, whereas they would be sent out from the Illusory Purgatory formed from the Inscription Formation in a timely manner, and this also allowed him to save an extremely precious talisman.
“This luck of mine is simply heaven defying!” Even though he wasn’t able to kill Lu Yong and Zi Shang, yet Duan Ling Tian didn’t feel the slightest bit regretful.
So long as he left the Illusory Purgatory, his Spiritual Force wouldn’t be restricted any longer, and he was able to utilize his soul skill, Thousand Illusions, as he pleased.
Now he was completely capable of killing both Lu Yong and Zi Shang without the talisman!
“Hahahaha…” After a short moment, Zhang Shou Yong’s loud laughter resounded out, and it was filled with joy.
Obviously, he’d realized what had happened as well.
Originally, he’d already held the thought that he would die without a doubt, yet at the critical moment, a scene like this had occurred, and it caused him to have no choice but to sigh with emotion about their luck.
Of course, the reason he would think like this was because he utterly didn’t know that Duan Ling Tian had another way to kill Lu Yong!
Zi Shang and Lu Yong appeared nearby, and after feeling a wave of confusion, they realized what had occurred, causing their faces to go grim.
“You got lucky!” The icy cold gaze that Zi Shang shot out flashed past Duan Ling Tian and Zhang Shou Yong as he grunted coldly.
“If I knew earlier, I’d have attacked earlier… If I’d attacked as soon as possible, it would be impossible for Duan Ling Tian to survive!” Lu Yong sighed and felt slightly regretful.
Lu Yong knew that since they’d left the Illusory Purgatory, it also meant that Duan Ling Tian could utilize his ‘illusory realm soul skill.’
According to the information he obtained from Zi Shang, once Duan Ling Tian utilized that ‘illusory realm soul skill’ against him, then the outcome will surely be one of no survival for him.
“We’ve come out!”
“Haha! We’ve come out!”
Meanwhile, the groups of young geniuses that had appeared out of thin air in the sky above the combat arena with Duan Ling Tian had started laughing, and some even lost their composure and starting cheering.
The time they experienced within the Illusory Purgatory was simply like a form of torture to them, as they were worried if they would encounter an existence stronger than them and be killed at every single moment.
Now, they’d come out and had survived through the first round of the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties. Moreover, they’d obtained the qualifications to advance and participate in the second round of the selections.
But in next to no time, the group of young geniuses that were cheering seemed to have noticed something, and all of them seemed as if their throats were choked tightly and were unable to make the slightest sound any longer.
The numerous corpses that lay on the combat ring ceaselessly impacted their eyes and caused them to feel a wave of horror.
Just like them, these people were living people before entering the Illusory Purgatory, yet now, while they’d come out from the Illusory Purgatory still alive, the others had become numerous icy cold corpses.
Many of these people were their friends and companions, and it was precisely the death of these people that won a chance for them to survive.
Suddenly, the sky above the combat arena was deathly silent.
“Ye Xiao, Bai He, Bai Hao… All of them died?” Duan Ling Tian looked at four corpses that were piled up together, and they were four of the ten young geniuses that came from the Darkhan Dynasty this time. Three of these people were existences with extraordinary strength, and they weren’t unfamiliar to Duan Ling Tian.
The Ye Clan’s Eldest Young Master, Ye Xiao, the Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family’s Second Prince, Bai He, and the Young Prince Bai Hao.
“I never expected that even Bai Hao would die.” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but gasp.
He knew of Bai Hao’s strength, and it was extremely outstanding.
Otherwise, it would be impossible for Bai Hao to obtain the third in the Dynasty Martial Competition of the Darkhan Dynasty one year ago.
“Only Zi Shang remains amongst the members of the Imperial Family… All the blood relatives of the Emperor have died. I presume he isn’t feeling well.” When he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but look at the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor.
At this moment, the face of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor was extremely gloomy, and his eyes were even suffused with a scarlet red color.
