Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Xue Nai, what happened to the powerhouse who opened 81 Saint Veins? Were there any other rumors about him on Dao Martial Saint Land?” Duan Ling Tian was quite curious about the powerhouse that Han Xue Nai mentioned.
In Wang Ba’s words, people like him were legendary Martial Cultivators!
“Yes.” Han Xue Nai nodded, her usually relaxed face tensed. “After the powerhouse grew, he was unbeatable in Dao Martial Saint Land!
“In his era, he was ranked No. 1 on the Supreme Saint Ranking of Dao Martial Saint Land! He once fought against the No. 2 to No. 10 of the Supreme Saint Ranking at once. That was one against nine other powerhouses.
“That timeless battle became a legend in Dao Martial Saint Land!” As Han Xue Nai spoke, admiration flashed in her eyes.
“Supreme Saint Ranking?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
“The Supreme Saint Ranking lists the top Saint Stage powerhouses in Dao Martial Saint Land. It represents the strongest people on Dao Martial Saint Land!”
“Being No. 1 in the Supreme Saint Ranking would also mean that he’s the strongest person in Dao Martial Saint Land!” Wang Ba’s voice resounded in Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
At the same time, Han Xue Nai was still explaining the ranking to him.
“Does the Supreme Saint Ranking place the top Saint Stage powerhouses in Dao Martial Saint Land?” Duan Ling Tian was shocked.
“Wang Ba, in your era, what was your placing in the Supreme Saint Ranking?” He curiously asked.
“I was No.99 in the Supreme Saint Ranking,” Wang Ba said proudly.
“No. 99?” Stunned, Duan Ling Tian then asked curiously, “How many places were there in the Supreme Saint Ranking?”
“100,” Wang Ba said.
“How long were you there?”
“Boy, I’m tired. I need a break.” Upon hearing the question, Wang Ba changed the topic and then kept silent.
Duan Ling Tian roared with laughter behind his sleeves.
It seemed that Wang Ba had not stayed on the Supreme Saint Ranking for a long time.
Even though he guessed that Wang Ba had not stayed on the Supreme Saint Ranking for a long time, he would never imagine that he did not even stay in the ranks for more than an hour.
At that time, Wang Ba was a laughing joke because when he was challenging the No. 99 of the Supreme Saint Ranking, there were two other Saint Stage powerhouses waiting to challenge him.
When he beat his opponent and replaced him as No. 99 of the Supreme Saint Ranking, the following Saint Stage powerhouses defeated him. Therefore, he was pushed back by a spot and ranked No. 100 instead.
However, he was kicked out of the Supreme Saint Ranking after the other Saint Stage powerhouses challenged him and defeated him. Since then, he had not been in the list at all.
“That senior was ranked No. 1 at the Supreme Saint Ranking for 30 years. No one could sway his position. He was removed from the Supreme Saint Ranking when he could no longer fight because he ascended Heaven and became immortal,” Han Xue Nai added.
“Ascended Heaven and became immortal?” While listening to Han Xue Nai, a scene from Duan Ling Tian’s hometown popped up in his mind.
That remote canyon with the word “sword” craved in it was still fresh in his mind.
“That Feng Qing Yang who craved the word ‘sword’ and called himself the Sword Saint seemed to mention ascending Heaven and becoming immortal…”
Thinking of that, Duan Ling Tian asked curiously, “Xue Nai, how was the powerhouse addressed?”
“People called him the Sword Saint. Not many people knew of his name,” Han Xue Nai said.
The corner of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth could not help but twitch when he heard that.
What a coincidence!
Both of them were called Sword Saint and had ascended Heaven to become immortal.
“It may also be a coincidence. It’s not out of the ordinary for a powerful Sword Cultivator to be called a Sword Saint,” he thought to himself.
“According to Xue Nai, the cultivation method on the Cloud Continent which can be cultivated to the Martial Emperor Stage was no worse than a cultivation method from Dao Martial Saint Land.’
“The Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique which I’ve cultivated was known as the top cultivation method on the Cloud Continent. I don’t know how many Saint Veins I can open when I breakthrough to the Mortal Shedding Stage.”
He was looking forward to reaching the Mortal Shedding Stage and opening the 81 hidden Saint Veins in his body.
However, he knew that he could not rush it.
“Currently, I’m merely at the Second Level Martial Emperor Stage. There’s still quite a distance to the Mortal Shedding Stage.” As he thought of it, he was jolted as if cold water had just been poured on his head.
Ten days passed quickly.
After ten days, Duan Ling Tian and the rest along with Yang Hui and the others from Ling Xuan Peak departed with the people from the Hidden Fog Island to the greatest of the Four Great Overseas Saint Islands, Half Moon Island.
Apart from them, the other Martial Emperors and Demon Emperors from the Cloud Continent also brought their men along.
More or less, they had some people who were ranked among the top 30 in the Hidden Fog Martial Competition under them.
Naturally, there were some Martial Emperors and Demon Emperors who did not have anyone ranked in the top 30 under them, but they still went along to join in the fun.
It was a rare opportunity to be able to go to Half Moon Island. Such an occurrence did not happen often.
Half Moon Island was located north of the Hidden Fog Island. In the deep sea north of the island, there were even more terrifying underwater demons which included existences stronger than the Fourth Level Demon Emperor Stage.
Everyone gathered together and the First Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island led them towards Half Moon Island
Duan Ling Tian had seen the First Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island once before this, but he had only been an Innate Illusory. Facing the real person, he felt an invisible pressure.
“Xue Nai, this First Island Master is a Peak Martial Emperor and is also on the Peak Innate Stage. Are you confident going against him?” After they departed, Duan Ling Tian asked Han Xue Nai through Voice Transmission.
“It would be a piece of cake to beat him if he didn’t cultivate any Saint Grade Martial Tactic. If he has, then it’s hard to say,” Han Xue Nai answered and Duan Ling Tian nodded.
He had cultivated a Saint Grade Martial Tactic, the Colossal Aerolite Arrow, so he knew that cultivating such a tactic would greatly affect a Martial Emperor powerhouse’s strength.
Martial Emperor Shi Qi, Martial Emperor Lei Ming, and Zhou Yi were not part of the group of Martial Emperor Stage powerhouses from the Cloud Continent that was heading to Half Moon Island. However, the people from Thundercloud Peak followed under Lan Bi’s leadership.
“Martial Emperor You Han…” Duan Ling Tian could sense the constant gaze of Martial Emperor You Han, but he did not care. Currently, he was just as strong as Martial Emperor You Han.
If they were to fight, Martial Emperor You Han would be, at the most, evenly matched to him.
It was impossible for her to defeat him!
“It’s too bad that I didn’t make progress on the Aerolite Strike and Body And Arrow Synchronization. Otherwise, I’m sure I’d be able to defeat Martial Emperor You Han if I made a breakthrough in any one of them,” Duan Ling Tian secretly thought.
If the others knew Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts, they would definitely feel that he was being too greedy.
It was already incredible for a mere Second Level Martial Emperor Stage to evenly match a Fifth Level Martial Emperor Stage.
Perhaps it was because of Han Xue Nai’s order that Martial Emperor Qing Xuan did not take the initiative to greet them when he saw her again.
The group left the Hidden Fog Island and headed to Half Moon Island.
In addition to the First Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island, the Third Island Master had followed and guarded the rear end of the group.
The Second Island Master stayed behind to guard the Hidden Fog Island.
“Such a pity! If that Second Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island, Chen Bei, came along, I’d just need to find a chance to lure him to kill me. He’d definitely attack!” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Now, he was no longer afraid of Chen Bei.
It was because Xue Nai and three little fellows were by his side. Even if the three little fellows were no match for Chen Bei, Han Xue Nai could still easily defeat or even kill him.
He was very confident about that.
On their way to Half Moon Island, they did meet some simple-minded demons.
However, they were killed the second they left the water before they even saw their targets. Their fallen bodies dyed the sea red.
“That’s strong!” Every time a demon died mysteriously, everyone including Duan Ling Tian would look at the First Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island in unison.
They knew that he had attacked it.
“He’s cultivated Saint Grade Martial Tactics.” Duan Ling Tian heard Han Xue Nai’s Voice Transmission.
Through the First Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island’s repeated attacks, Han Xue Nai discovered something and could confirm that he had cultivated Saint Grade Martial Tactics.
Duan Ling Tian nodded when he heard Han Xue Nai’s words. However, he did not seem surprised about it.
After all, the First Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island was the real master of the Hidden Fog Island which was one of the Four Great Overseas Saint Islands.
It was not weird for someone like that to have cultivated Saint Grade Martial Tactics. It would have been even weirder if he did not cultivate it.
Time passed silently and a month passed in the blink of an eye.
“Is that Half Moon Island?” Someone called out in a low voice and woke Duan Ling Tian who was cultivating with his eyes closed. Duan Ling Tian stared and saw a small black spot in front that was constantly enlarging in a glance.
Unlike the Hidden Fog Island that was shrouded in layers of fog, the island which gradually cleared fell into his line of sight.
“Half Moon Island… We’re finally here,” Duan Ling Tian murmured.
In the past month, Duan Ling Tian devoted himself to cultivating, trying to comprehend and improve his two Profundities simultaneously.
He was improving his strength at every moment of every day.
The group from the Hidden Fog Island including Duan Ling Tian successfully entered Half Moon Island under the guidance of the First Island Master of the Hidden Fog Island.
The bird’s eye view of Half Moon Island looked like its namesake.
Perhaps that was why it was known as Half Moon Island.
“When we arrive at Half Moon Island, we’ll be able to see the Dao Cultivator from the two other Mortal Continents.” Duan Ling Tian’s heart was filled with expectation and curiosity towards the Dao Cultivators.
