Chapter 1015: Second Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When Duan Ling Tian saw the scene before his eyes, his face immediately turned pale.
His full strength was only around 3,000 ancient horned dragons even with the aid from his Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword!
However, Zhao Ming had yet to use his spirit weapon at the moment, and he had already displayed such powerful strength.
“His strength… i-is still increasing?” Duan Ling Tian could not help but narrow his eyes.
Lord! What did he just witness?
The Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above Zhao Ming’s head — the number of ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes — kept increasing. It was as though there was no end to it.
In the end, Duan Ling Tian went numb from the shock. He was struck dumb when he looked at the over 7,000 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons that finally stopped increasing.
Feng Tian Wu who was standing by Duan Ling Tian’s side instantly turned pale.
“M-Martial Monarch powerhouse?”
From what Feng Tian Wu could see, a person who could mobilize the Heaven and Earth Energy and gather a Heaven and Earth Phenomenon like that could only be a powerhouse that was at least at the Martial Monarch Stage.
Even a powerhouse who was already at the Void Peak and had comprehended five Ninth Level Void Transformation Concepts could not display such an exaggerated Heaven and Earth Phenomenon without any spirit weapon even if he exerted his full strength.
A martial artist would be considered to be at the Void Peak when he or she became a Ninth Level Void Transformation martial artist who had comprehended at least two Ninth Level Void Transformation Concepts.
When the full strength of a Ninth Level Void Transformation martial artist was unleashed, it was equivalent to the strength of 1,200 ancient horned dragons
A Ninth Level Void Transformation Concept was equivalent to the strength of 1,000 ancient horned dragons.
A powerhouse at the Void Peak who had comprehended five types of Ninth Level Void Transformation Concepts had the strength of 6,200 ancient horned dragons without the use of any spirit weapon.
Such strength was not even worth mentioning before the elder in front of him.
“What exactly did this Zhao Ming go through? How could he possess such powerful strength?” After the initial shock, Duan Ling Tian regained his senses. His gaze that was focused on Zhao Ming was filled with astonishment.
It did not cross his mind that Zhao Ming’s strength would be this powerful.
After just a year, the strength Zhao Ming possessed was more than enough to be compared to a Martial Monarch powerhouse! It was far from what he could compare to.
The strength of over 7,000 ancient horned dragons…
What kind of freaking level was that?!
His strength would not even amount to half of Zhao Ming’s strength even if he used his Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword and exerted his full strength.
Zhao Ming could easily destroy him with just one blow!
“Duan Ling Tian, didn’t you say you can easily kill and cripple me like before? I can’t wait to see how you’re going to kill me now!” Zhao Ming did not miss the changes on Duan Ling Tian’s face from the beginning until the very end. A fierce and smug smile instantly appeared on his face when he saw Duan Ling Tian’s pale face.
“Zhao Ming, it looks like you encountered a windfall. Just a short span of one year, and you actually possess such mighty strength now!” Duan Ling Tian solemnly said to Zhao Ming after he took a deep breath.
“What? Are you scared now?” Zhao Ming smiled sinisterly.
This feeling of having decisive power in his own hands made his blood boiled with excitement.
“Scared? Of you?” Duan Ling Tian narrowed his eyes as a sneer appeared on the corner of his mouth.
“You’re still as stubborn as always even when death is approaching! Today, I’ll repay whatever you did to me previously without any mistake! However, I’ll watch you suffer for three days and three nights after I destroy your Dantian and severe your four limbs before I kill you!” Zhao Ming snorted. His face turned cold as his eyes gleamed with malice.
As the saying went, ‘Tear the weeds out by the roots so that it can never grow again.’
Previously, Duan Ling Tian did not kill him, and for this reason, he was able to recover and even possessed such powerful strength now. There was no doubt he was a perfect living example of this saying.
Due to this reason, Zhao Ming would not make the same mistake Duan Ling Tian made even if he still could not recall what he had gone through.
From what he could remember, he had passed out when Duan Ling Tian left after crippling his Dantian and severing his four limbs. The moment he regained his consciousness, he found himself in the mountain range and had already possessed the strength of over 7,000 ancient horned dragons.
This new strength of his was several hundred times more than the strength he had previously possessed.
“My current strength is equivalent to a Martial Monarch powerhouse!” Although Zhao Ming was only a citizen of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, he still had a certain understanding about Martial Monarch powerhouses.
It was because of this he knew the strength he currently possessed was equivalent to a Martial Monarch powerhouse!
“Destroy my Dantian and four limbs? Watch me suffer for three days and three nights before you kill me?” Duan Ling Tian had to admit he felt chills creeping up from the bottom of his heart after he listened to Zhao Ming’s vicious words.
At this moment, just like what Zhao Ming had thought, Duan Ling Tian really regretted not destroying the root completely!
Previously, he hated Zhao Ming to the core for betraying the Seven Star Sword Sect and joining forces with the Azure Forest Tri-Sect to kill Elder Ming and the former Sect Leader, Linghu Jin Hong from the Seven Star Sword Sect.
For this reason, he did not kill Zhao Ming directly. He wanted to let Zhao Ming live his remaining life in despair in order to eliminate the hatred in his heart.
It did not cross his mind that after more than a year, not only did Zhao Ming’s damaged Dantian and four limbs heal, he even possessed such mighty strength.
“Could it be… There’s something I’ve yet to discover about the Inscription Formation in the Darkstone Empire?” Right now, the only explanation Duan Ling Tian had was Zhao Ming had encountered a windfall at the Inscription Formation. Apart from this, he really could not think of anything else that Zhao Ming could possibly encounter.
With the state Zhao Ming was in previously, there was no way he could have a fortuitous encounter with anything other than the Inscription Formation unless somebody went in to save him and bestowed such luck to him.
However, one would have to possess a wound curing medicinal pill that was at least at the level of either the Immortal Spirit Herb or the Quasi Royal Grade Resurrection Pill in order to heal his Dantian.
Duan Ling Tian felt this theory was too far-fetched.
‘10,000 years ago, the Rebirth Martial Emperor distributed some of his Quasi Royal Grade Resurrection Pill and Royal Grade Resurrection Pill to the outer world, but they were only passed on to the hands of a few powerful forces in Cloud Continent. They would have used it up after 10,000 years. Even if they’re not completely used up, it’s almost impossible for them to appear in the Darkhan Dynasty, let alone the Darkstone Empire,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
“Moreover, even if somebody did rescue Zhao Ming, it’s unlikely that person would bestow him with such horrifying strength. Even a Martial Emperor would not be able to turn Zhao Ming — a Void Initiation martial artist whose entire strength only amounted to a dozen over ancient horned dragons — to a powerhouse who’s as strong as a Martial Monarch and possesses the strength of over 7,000 ancient horned dragons!” Duan Ling Tian had to admit Zhao Ming’s progress really took him by surprise.
No matter how he ransacked the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, he could not find a plausible method that allowed a person to possess such strength in such a short period of time.
Moreover, Zhao Ming’s strength was quite strange.
“The black energy around Zhao Ming’s body doesn’t seem to be the Origin Energy. It doesn’t look like Concepts as well. What kind of energy is that?” Duan Ling Tian frowned as he looked at Zhao Ming.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes gleamed. It was as though a light bulb just came on in his head. “The energy around Zhao Ming’s body seems quite similar to the energy that previously appeared on the Devilseal Tablet.”
Previously, when he was devilified by the Devilseal Tablet before he killed the six Skywolf Fort’s elders in one blow, a black energy that was neither Origin Energy nor Concept had appeared on the Devilseal Tablet.
That wave of black energy merged with his body and soul. Although it made him lose consciousness, it also gave him extremely powerful strength.
At that time, he was only a Void Interpretation martial artist.
However, after he was devilifed by the Devilseal Tablet, he managed to kill six Skywolf Fort’s elders who were at the Void Transformation stage!
“Don’t tell me Zhao Ming has also been devilified?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed again as he speculated.
“B-But, why didn’t he lose his consciousness if he’s devilified?” Duan Ling Tian was extremely puzzled about this matter.
At this moment, a wave of scorching aura charged toward Duan Ling Tian. His face turned solemn immediately.
When he turned his head, he immediately saw a wave of vast flame rose up from Feng Tian Wu’s body and soared into the sky as it emitted a fiery aura that encompassed the entire sky.
1,000 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons appeared above Feng Tian Wu’s head before it increased to 2,000 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons.
“Tian Wu!” Horror dawned on Duan Ling Tian’s face.
It did not cross his mind that Feng Tian Wu would actually cast the First Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity!
At this moment, he could clearly feel the energy of the Fire Spirit Body inside Tian Wu’s body was about to erupt. It was as though it was going to burst out of Feng Tian Wu.
After the appearance of the 2,000 ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes, the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon continued to transform. Within seconds, another 1,000 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons appeared.
The strength of 3,000 ancient horned dragons!
“S-Second Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity?!” Duan Ling Tian turned pale again when he saw this.
Presently, he could clearly feel the energy of the Fire Spirit Body in Feng Tian Wu’s body had become more agitated.
He did not waste his time to think about it any further as he hastily transmitted his Voice Transmission into Feng Tian Wu’s ears. “Tian Wu, withdraw your Fire Profundity now! I know how to deal with this Zhao Ming! I’m serious! I really do have a way!”
Duan Ling Tian’s tone was filled with anxiety.
He only knew Feng Tian Wu could unleash the First Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity in the past. He did not know she could also cast the Second Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity.
Moreover, he had a feeling if she continued to go on like this, there was a possibility of her casting the Third or even the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity.
However, Tian Wu would definitely die if she did that!
There was a possibility the energy of the Fire Spirit Body would cause an explosion in her body before she even had the chance to cast a higher level Monarch Stage Fire Profundity.
Feng Tian Wu had already made up her mind when she saw the strength Zhao Ming had demonstrated and heard about the unresolved hatred between Zhao Ming and Duan Ling Tian.
Even if she had to risk her life, she had to kill Zhao Ming and save her Big Brother Duan from this crisis!
For the sake of Big Brother Duan, she could sacrifice everything, including her life.
“Really?” Although Feng Tian Wu heard Duan Ling Tian’s Voice Transmission, she was still a little doubtful.
