Chapter 1002: Three Thousand Ancient Horned Dragon’s Strength!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Ink Steel was extremely valuable, it was a necessary ingredient to craft a Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Weapon and a Royal Grade Spirit Weapon.
Back then, the Rebirth Martial Emperor painstakingly obtained a limited amount of Ink Steel to craft a Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Weapon and a Royal Grade Spirit Weapon.
The amount of Ink Steel then was not even enough to forge one percent of the Ink Steel box before his eyes.
“This sword…” Duan Ling Tian lifted his arm and took the fiery-red Flexible Sword that was as thin as a cicada’s wings from the box. He held it in his hand and swung it lightly.
Oin! The five-foot-long fiery-red Flexible Sword instantly quivered as a melodious and clear sound of sword cry resonated. It was a Quasi Royal Grade Spirit after all.
Duan Ling Tian quickly put the sword away, and he did not forget to put the box that was made of Ink Steel away too.
In his opinion, the box was the real treasure. It would be essential when he needed to craft a Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Weapon and a Royal Grade Spirit Weapon in the future. It was obvious that Duan Ling Tian was farsighted.
“Three keys to open the door to Qing Feng Palace’s fifth level and to open a box that contains a Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword…” Duan Ling Tian shook his head as he looked at Qing Feng Palace’s fifth level. He did not go up but sat cross-legged on the ground instead.
Cultivate! Heal his injuries!
That was what Duan Ling Tian intended to do.
In his opinion, Qing Feng Palace’s fifth level should be the resting place of Martial Emperor Qing Feng barring any surprises.
According to the test set by Martial Emperor Qing Feng for all four levels so far, it was not hard to deduce that Qing Feng Palace’s fifth level would have a test that would be even more difficult.
“I’m afraid it’s not going to be easy to search for Martial Emperor Qing Feng’s body!”
“I’m currently injured. Moreover, I still have to absorb the Violetspike Fruit’s medicinal efficacy… I should continue cultivating and heal my injuries before I enter the fifth level!” After Duan Ling Tian made his decision, he focused on his cultivation and the recovery of his injuries.
Time passed quietly.
Duan Ling Tian did not know how much time had passed when he realized the Violetspike Fruit’s medicinal efficacy that was flowing with his Origin Energy in his body’s meridians had completely disappeared.
Currently, his cultivation had reached the bottleneck that led to the Sixth Level Void Transformation.
“It can be considered good that it even lasted this long.” Moreover, the Violetspike Fruit’s medicinal efficacy had also given Duan Ling Tian a pleasant surprise. “Although the Violetspike Fruit’s medicinal efficacy is gone, the Rebirth Pill’s potent medicinal efficacy is still driving the Origin Energy in my body to circulate swiftly!”
“Let’s get this done with one vigorous effort, and break through the bottleneck to progress to the Sixth Level Void Transformation!” Duan Ling Tian inhaled deeply and continued cultivating.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Roving Dragon Form!
Although Duan Ling Tian was cultivating, he did not forget about healing his injuries and comprehending Concepts by holding two Concept Fragments in his hands.
The Wind Concept Fragment was naturally indispensable.
Currently, any improvement he made with the Wind Concept improved the Fire Concept as well.
That was why he would not waste this opportunity to improve his Wind Concept.
As for the other three Concepts, he spent more time comprehending the Earth Concept.
The reason was simple.
The Earth Concept could communicate with the earth and draw support from Earth Energy!
If he reached a plateau when comprehending the Earth Concept, he would comprehend the Thunder Concept out of the two remaining Concepts. That was because the Thunder Concept had a higher level than the Sword Concept.
He continued cultivating as he comprehended the Concepts.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian’s injuries were rapidly recovering due to the Life Recovery Pill’s medicinal efficacy. He was quickly healed and restored to peak condition. It was as though he was not injured at all.
Duan Ling Tian, who sat cross-legged, suddenly trembled slightly. Soon after, he opened his eyes, and there was a gleam in his eyes.
At the same time, his face was filled with surprise. “Sixth Level Void Transformation… I’ve finally broken through! The Rebirth Pill’s medicinal efficacy has also returned to my Dantian,” he muttered in surprise. A milky white flame rose from his body and caused the Heaven and Earth Energy above him to stir.
The Heaven and Earth Energy whirred and formed the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon. Ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes appeared in the sky, they looked lifelike as they slowly descended.
The number of ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes kept increasing until it reached eight hundred before it stopped.
When the Sixth Level Void Transformation’s Origin Energy was fully exerted, it was equivalent to eight hundred ancient horned dragons’ strength!
“There’s also the Concepts!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes brightened as the Earth Concept appeared and merged with the Origin Energy before it transformed into khaki energy that surrounded him.
When the Earth Concept appeared, the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above him increased to nine hundred ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes.
“It’s really too bad that I can’t draw support from the Earth Energy here due to the Bumpy Road’s effect on Qing Feng Palace’s fourth level… Otherwise, I would have another 50 ancient horned dragons’ strength!” Duan Ling Tian sighed as he looked at the nine hundred ancient horned dragons’ silhouette at the space above him.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian regained his composure.
In just an instant, the khaki energy trembled and exuded a swift and piercing aura. It was the Sword Concept!
The Ninth Level Intermediate Sword Concept appeared. The Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above changed again. There was currently a thousand ancient horned dragons’ silhouette.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Thunder rumbled as purple lightning entwined and surrounded the khaki energy.
First Level Advanced Thunder Concept!
It was equivalent to two hundred ancient horned dragons’ strength!
There were changes to the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above again as it increased to 1,200 ancient horned dragons’ silhouette.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian’s purple robe began to flutter as a gust of green wind rose up.
Another four hundred ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes appeared instantly at the space above Duan Ling Tian.
Along with the appearance of the green wind, a vast flame that encompassed the sky resulted in the appearance of another four hundred ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes.
It was the Third Level Advanced Wind Concept and the Third Level Advance Fire Concept that came from it!
Currently, the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above Duan Ling Tian had a total of two thousand ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes. It was breathtakingly impressive.
However, it was not the end.
The flames soared even higher as the green wind merged with the flames.
The Wind Concept was fueling the Fire Concept!
Another two hundred ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes instantly appeared. The Fire Concept’s amplified strength was the result of the Wind Concept fueling the Fire Concept.
2,200 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes hovered at the space above Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes slightly.
“What if I use the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword…” A sword appeared in his hand as soon as the thought formed in his mind. It was the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword he had been using all this while.
The Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above stirred when Duan Ling Tian’s force entered the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword. Eight hundred ancient horned dragons’ silhouette materialized out of thin air.
Currently, Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base was at the Sixth Level Void Transformation. That meant his Origin Energy, when fully exerted, would amount to eight hundred ancient horned dragons’ strength.
The Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword granted a onefold increase which meant he had an additional eight hundred ancient horned dragons’ strength!
Three thousand ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes gathered at the space above Duan Ling Tian. He was shocked to the core when he saw that.
It was a feast for the eyes!
“The sword in my hands currently possessed the strength of three thousand ancient horned dragons!” Duan Ling Tian gripped the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword and stared at the Concepts and Origin Energy that was intertwined with it. His face was filled with excitement.
‘If I can draw support from the Earth Energy… My full strength would be equivalent to 3,050 ancient horned dragons’ strength!’ Duan Ling Tian became even more excited when he thought about it.
Duan Ling Tian suddenly stood up with his sword by his side. His purple robe fluttered even though there was no wind.
His body exuded an aura of confidence.
“A martial artist at the Ninth Level Void Transformation has the strength of 2,200 ancient horned dragons if he fully exerts his strength without using a spirit weapon…”
“I don’t have to be afraid if I have to confront a martial artist in that scenario! However, I’m no match for them if they use spirit weapons… even if it’s grade two spirit weapons.” There was no doubt the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand was of a high grade since it could double his strength!
Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base was at the Sixth Level Void Transformation, his Origin Energy increased by twofold only amounted to eight hundred ancient horned dragons’ strength.
On the other hand, a Ninth Level Void Transformation martial artist had the strength of 1,200 ancient horned dragons when he fully exerted his strength.
Even if they used a mere grade two spirit weapon that amplifies 78% of their strength, the increase would grant them over 930 ancient horned dragons’ strength.
Their amplified strength would defeat Duan Ling Tian!
“I didn’t think expect to have a breakthrough in one go at Qing Feng Palace’s fourth level… Originally, my full strength was only equivalent to 1,600 ancient horned dragons’ strength!”
“I can now exert three thousand ancient horned dragons’ strength! That’s almost double the original amount.” Duan Ling Tian was excited, and it took a long time for him to calm down.
After a while, he looked at the door that led to Qing Feng Palace’s fifth level.
“It’s time to go up there and find out… No matter what test Martial Emperor Qing Feng set up, I’ll break through it one at a time and obtain the three Profundity Fragments in his body.” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed. He flew up and stepped in the air as he entered Qing Feng Palace’s fifth and final level.
On the other hand, Zuo Yue had left Qing Feng Palace. Not only did he leave Qing Feng Palace, he had left the central area of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure and returned to the entrance he came from.
After he entered the entrance that belonged to him, Zuo Yue entered the Illusory Formation again. He headed back in the direction he previously came from.
“Duan Ling Tian, I want to see how you’re going to escape the hunt from the three largest sects!” A sneer appeared on Zuo Yue’s face, and coldness gleamed in his eyes as he flew out.
