Chapter 1211: Devilseal Tablet
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“If we’d been just slightly unlucky earlier, we would’ve definitely ended up like them.” Many Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers stared at the bodies on the ground. All they could feel was a chill running down their spines as their skins crawled with goosebumps.
At that second, they considered themselves lucky that their lives were spared.
“What? Have you given up on resisting now?” Just like the Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers, Zhou Yi, who had witnessed Duan Ling Tian retracting his Quasi-Royal Grade Spirit Sword, also thought that Duan Ling Tian had already forsaken his resistance.
For a moment, disdain crept upon the corner of his mouth and the gaze upon which he looked at Duan Ling Tian was full of contempt.
“I wondered why Tian Wu would fall for such a piece of trash like you… However, from today onwards, Tian Wu will definitely fall out of love with you. No woman would love a man whose Dantian and four limbs are crippled!” Zhou Yi slurred unhurriedly and when he finished, the mock on his face became even more apparent.
“You…” Then, even though Zhou Yi decided to add more, he automatically shut his mouths and cut himself off.
He stopped because he noticed that after Duan Ling Tian retracted the spirit sword, he took a stone tablet that lacked a corner out.
This stone tablet appeared to be ordinary and it was carved with words that he did not recognize.
Even though he did not recognize the words on it, the aura of vicissitude of life that faintly gushed out of it made him realize that this stone tablet was not that simple after all.
“It looks like a stone tablet.”
At that point, the group of Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers who stood at a distance, rejoicing in their luck of surviving had also shifted their glance towards the stone tablet in Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
“He retracted the sword but took this stone tablet out instead… Don’t tell me that this is his weapon too?”
“It must be. Otherwise, why would he do so?”
“Perhaps he’s preparing his own tombstone.”
“You have a point.”
“Tombstone? What a joke! Have you seen a tombstone that’s fully carved with such dense words that none of us recognize at all?”
Many Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers whispered to each other. All of them were curious about the tablet stone that lacked a corner in Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
After Duan Ling Tian had retracted the Quasi-Royal Grade Spirit Sword, he had taken out this tablet which was none other than the Devilseal Tablet that he always brought along with him
The Devilseal Tablet was also his biggest hope for today.
“Tian Wu doesn’t fear death at all for my sake, so today, for Tian Wu’s sake, I’ll have no regrets even if I lose my sanity after using this Devilseal Tablet!” He gripped onto the Devilseal Tablet tightly as he stared at Zhou Yi who was far away.
“After I’ve activated the Devilseal Tablet, I must kill Zhou Yi in the shortest time possible and take Tian Wu away with me… Otherwise, by the time I’ve completely lost my consciousness, I won’t be able to rescue Tian Wu and leave anymore,” he thought to himself and his plan started to take form in his mind.
For a moment, the sharp ray in his eyes penetrated Zhou Yi and shone even more brightly as killing intent flashed across them.
“Duan Ling Tian, is this the tombstone that you’ve prepared for yourself since you already know that you’re gonna die this time?” Zhou Yi ignored Duan Ling Tian’s eyes that were gleaming with murderous intent and asked with a smirk mockingly.
However, Duan Ling Tian did not reply to him.
Right then, Duan Ling Tian was doing his best to agitate his own emotions and was trying to breed feelings of hopelessness and despair within himself deliberately.
All this was so that the Devilseal Tablet in his hand would help to devilify him.
Directly, the Devilseal Tablet could only provide a boost of 100% which was the equivalent of the Quasi-Royal Grade Spirit Sword. It would be meaningless to him.
On top of that, given the critical situation that he was in now, even a real Royal Grade Spirit Sword would be of much help to him. He would not be able to beat Zhou Yi even with the Royal Grade Spirit Sword.
The Heaven and Earth Energy had already gathered to become Heaven and Earth Energy above Zhou Yi’s head.
There were a total of seven ancient black dragon silhouettes and 1,000 ancient horned dragon silhouettes that were spiraling as they descended. They seemed vivid and lively as though they covered half of the sky, giving a sense of invisible pressure.
From this example, one could see that at his maximum strength, Zhou Yi could exert the strength of seven ancient black dragons and 1,000 ancient horned dragons.
As for Duan Ling Tian, even after he had fully unleashed his power, his strength was only equivalent to six ancient black dragons and 2,000 ancient horned dragons.
Even a Royal Grade Sword Spirit Weapon that could give a boost of 120% would only give Duan Ling Tian an additional strength of 1200 ancient horned dragons.
Currently, Duan Ling Tian was at the Fourth Level Martial Monarch Stage and when he unleashed his entire Origin Energy, it was equivalent to the strength of 6,000 ancient horned dragons.
The Quasi-Royal Grade Spirit Sword could give him an additional 100% boost of strength, thus making it the equivalent to the strength of 6,000 ancient horned dragons.
The Royal Grade Spirit Weapon, on the other hand, could provide an additional 120% boost of strength, adding up to the strength of 7,200 ancient horned dragons.
However, even with the additional strength of 1,200 ancient horned dragons, Duan Ling Tian’s full strength would only be six ancient black dragons and 3,200 ancient horned dragons.
Even so, he was still far from Zhou Yi.
For this reason, he could only rely on the Devilseal Tablet to defeat and kill him.
By some unknown force, the Devilseal Tablet had already left Duan Ling Tian’s hand and was hovering right in front of him. At the same time, gusts of black mist were engulfing it.
One could vaguely see a dark black liquid that was gushing out continuously on the surface of the Devilseal Tablet.
Not long after that, the words on top of it were covered by the black liquid.
Though this black liquid was on the Devilseal Tablet, the aura that it emitted out still gave chills to everyone present on the scene, including Zhou Yi.
“My goodness! What stone tablet is that? How can black liquid flow out of it and emit black mist? I-Isn’t this peculiar?”
“I’ve got a feeling that the black liquid flowing on the stone tablet seems to be kinda horrifying.”
“I feel the same way too!”
When the group of Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers saw this, they once again put some distance in between them and the confrontation in fear that they would be affected again.
They faintly realized that the reason the purple-clad young man had retracted his spirit sword and took out this stone tablet was not to abide for his death but instead, he wanted to use the stone tablet against Zhou Yi.
It was apparent that this stone table was not as simple as it looked.
The aura that flowed out of it was spreading even wider and when it swept out all over the place, it crushed some of those Martial Emperor’s followers whose cultivation base was much lower to the point that they could hardly breathe.
“Devilseal Tablet.” As a glimmer shone in his eyes, Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath before lifting a hand and pressing on the Devilseal Tablet that was hovering in front of him.
At that instance, the black liquid and black mist on top of the Devilseal Tablet seemed to have found a release point. Vigorously, they surged into Duan Ling Tian’s hand that was plastered across the Devilseal Tablet.
It was evident that Duan Ling Tian was going to use this Devilseal Table to devilify.
“Shit!” Long before the Devilseal Tablet started to show sign of changing, Zhou Yi started to have an ominous premonition about it.
Seeing Duan Ling Tian place his hand on the Devilseal Tablet and how the energy of the Devilseal Tablet that elicited fear from the bottom of his hand surged into his foe’s hand, horror dawned on his face right away.
Just when the black liquid and black mist just started to surge into Duan Ling Tian’s hand and had just gone past his forearm, Zhou Yi vanished from the spot and when he reappeared once again, he was already in front of Duan Ling Tian.
Without any hesitation, Zhou Yi lifted his hand. The ray from the grade one spirit saber in his hand burst out with vast, rolling energy that caused a detonation to explode in the air non-stop.
At the same time, airwaves swept out and transformed into a series of brutal hurricanes that sent the surrounding gigantic stones tumbling and flying.
Not long after, the gigantic stones in the proximity were cleared and all that was left was a clear, empty field.
This all happened in just the blink of an eye when Zhou Yi emerged in front of Duan Ling Tian and the ray soared out from the spirit saber in his hand.
When the Devilseal Tablet’s black liquid and black mist approached Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder, Zhou Yi seemed to have fused with the saber in his hand and transformed it into a gigantic saber that hacked down towards Duan Ling Tian. More precisely, it swung towards the Devilseal Tablet that was covered in the black liquid and black mist in front of him.
A slicing sound that disappeared as soon as it appeared entered everyone’s ears like thunder piercing the air.
Everybody’s hearts trembled violently.
A thunderous loud bang entered their ears suddenly and their eardrums vibrated hard. Blood even spurted out the ears of some of the Martial Emperor’s followers whose cultivation base was much lower due to the unforgiving vibrations.
After the gigantic saber that was transformed by Zhou Yi hacked down towards the Devilseal Tablet in front of Duan Ling Tian and released a loud bang, a gust of bloodcurdling energy spread out from the impact point.
The gust of bloodcurdling energy was an impact wave that formed as a result of the explosion of the airwaves caused by the extreme compression of the air flows.
The impact wave swept out in all directions. Other than the center of the impact wave where the two of them were, all the gigantic stones within a 100-meter radius from them were crushed entirely to powder.
Furthermore, the ground within the 100-meter radius had also trembled until lines of ferocious cracks spread out, crisscrossing with each other as though it had become a gigantic spider net.
Horror dawned on the Martial Emperor’s disciples who were close to the 100-meter radius.
As for those Martial Emperor’s followers, some were sent flying all the way to several dozen meters before they finally came to a halt.
At that moment, they no longer dared to stand together with the group of Martial Emperor’s disciples. Instead, they stood afar, watching the gigantic saber and the purple figure as well as the stone tablet that lacked a corner hovering in between them.
The next instance, the gigantic saber transformed once again become a human and a saber. It was Zhou Yi reemerging in front of everyone once more.
He was staring at the stone tablet that lacked a corner with black liquid and black mist flowing from it in bafflement. He was unable to return to his senses for a very long time.
His full attack did not even leave a single trace on this stone tablet at all.
In addition to that, the stone tablet was still hovering in the air. Earlier, his strike that contained the strength of more than seven ancient black dragons could not even make the stone tablet move or waver the slightest.
“H-How is this possible?!” The Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers also noticed this. Their eyes narrowed one by one as disbelief crept upon their faces.
However, their attention was soon turned towards the purple-clad young man hovering behind the stone tablet.
