Chapter 495: Mastery Stage Tempest Point!
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Amongst the sharp cry, the little gold mouse transformed into an exceedingly swift gold light that left Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder and shot into the sky.
Whereas that bolt of tribulation lightning that crashed downwards made a turn above Duan Ling Tian and chased towards the little gold mouse.
The little gold mouse stopped and stood in midair.
As she gazed at the tribulation lightning that flashed over, the little gold mouse’s jade green eyes contained slight disdain mixed within.
The aggressively approaching tribulation lightning charged straight towards the little gold mouse.
When the tribulation lightning was about to strike onto the little gold mouse’s body.
“Squeak!!!” The little gold mouse hurriedly enlarged herself, then opened her mouth and emitted a sharp cry.
Instantly, the air shook and the surrounding airflow started to fly into the little gold mouse’s mouth at lightning speed.
Whereas the bolt of tribulation lightning was completely swallowed by the little gold mouse.
It started with a bang but ended with a whimper.
The tribulation lightning that approached aggressively had become the food in the little gold mouse’s stomach in the blink of an eye.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse rubbed her expanded little stomach and looked at Duan Ling Tian complacently, as she wanted to seek credit.
In next to no time, she noticed that Duan Ling Tian stood there like a block of wood and didn’t have the slightest reaction, and she instantly dropped her little head in slight dejection.
The dark cloud in the horizon shook as the sixth bolt of the Six-Nine Heavenly Tribulation which was the last bolt of tribulation lightning had finally condensed into form and descended with a bang.
Accompanying its descend was another bolt of tribulation lightning with an equivalent might to it.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse’s eyes lit up, then she flashed out to come close to Duan Ling Tian and waited for the arrival of the two bolts of tribulation lightning.
The first bolt of tribulation lightning descended with a bang, and it was like a falling meteorite that aimed straight for Duan Ling Tian.
“Squeak!!” However, although the tribulation lightning approached menacingly, along with the little gold mouse opening her mouth, the tribulation lightning was completely swallowed by the little gold mouse into her stomach.
Subsequently, the little gold mouse’s gaze descended onto the bolt of tribulation lightning in the back.
Right when the little gold mouse opened her mouth once more and intended to swallow the last bolt of tribulation lightning.
“Little Gold, leave this bolt of tribulation lightning to me!” Duan Ling Tian awoke and his figure flashed out the instant he opened his eyes…
Swift like the wind, violent like lightning!
In the blink of an eye, Duan Ling Tian had risen into the air to intercept the last bolt of tribulation lightning that crashed down.
“Now, I ought to test the might of the Lightning Force I’ve just comprehended.” The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth curled into a smile as his gaze abruptly squinted. With a raise of his hand, his sleeve fluttered as he pointed out, and his Origin Energy condensed to possess an awe-inspiring might that seemed as if it could point through anything.
The beam of Origin Energy shot out from the tip of Duan Ling Tian’s finger, and it contained strands of azure energy and strands of violet energy twined around it, yet the violet energy was slightly weak, but not too much weaker.
The beam of Origin Energy swept out accompanied by Wind Force and Lightning Force, and it formed the true Tempest Point.
The Tempest Point tore through the sky, emitting ear piercing howls that deafened the ear, and the airflow in the sky flowed swiftly as he fiercely pointed onto the last bolt of tribulation lightning.
An enormous bang sounded out, and the last bolt of tribulation lightning was directly destroyed by Duan Ling Tian’s point and it transformed into nothingness.
Whereas Duan Ling Tian’s expression remained unchanged and he was calm and collected.
His internal organs only shook slightly.
At this moment, in the sky above Duan Ling Tian, another 1,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes had appeared beside the original 2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes…
Amongst the 1,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes that had appeared.
The strength of 500 ancient mammoths belonged to his Wind Force, Half-step Advanced Wind Force!
The other strength of 500 ancient mammoths belonged to his Lightning Force, Half-step Advanced Lightning Force!
Duan Ling Tian had his wish fulfilled and comprehended Half-step Advanced Lightning Force.
“I have to thank the fifth tribulation lightning that was replicated to strike towards Little Gold for being able to comprehend Half-step Advanced Lightning Force…” When he recalled what happened earlier, at the same time that Duan Ling Tian felt a slight lingering fear in his heart, he couldn’t help but sigh with emotion.
That bolt of tribulation lightning flashed straight towards him, and if the little gold mouse didn’t make a move in time, he would die without a doubt.
At that moment, he even felt slightly regretful. Why did he have to be arrogant and not utilize a spirit sword since the beginning?
Of course, Duan Ling Tian didn’t use a spirit sword for the sake of using Tempest Point to go against the tribulation lightning, and to comprehend lightning force while he went against the tribulation lightning.
Although Tempest Point could be executed while utilizing a spirit sword, while its might would be great, its effect would be reduced greatly.
The Tempest Point was a finger martial skill after all.
Using a finger to execute it was the correct way!
Right at the instant when Duan Ling Tian was enveloped by the energy of the tribulation lightning and was about to be struck.
Somehow, he obtained a clear comprehension of the characteristics of lightning, and every aspect of lightning…
This type of comprehension was similar to sudden insight, yet wasn’t completely sudden insight.
After all, he’d already developed a Lightning Force Seed by himself.
Just like that day, he didn’t possess any knowledge about Wind Force, then directly comprehended Wind Force in a single sudden insight.
That was true sudden insight!
Whereas this time, Duan Ling Tian relied more on the tribulation lightning and Tempest Point to be able to allow his Lightning Force Seed to grow into Half-step Advanced Lightning Force in a short period of time.
“Half-step Advanced Wind Force, Half-step Advanced Lightning Force… Presently, my Tempest Point can already be considered to have broken through to the Mastery Stage!” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart and he couldn’t help but reveal a delighted expression.
This was something that he’d never expected earlier.
The Tempest Point was a high grade Earth Rank martial skill that came with the Lightning Wyrm Form, and its might was extraordinary.
Whereas the advancement in its stage was instead extremely difficult, and it was different than ordinary high grade Earth Rank martial skills.
The advancement of stage of ordinary high grade Earth Rank martial skills was directed at the advancement of the corresponding type of Force for it to advance alongside the Force.
Just like the high grade Earth Rank movement technique, Whirlwind, that Duan Ling Tian cultivated.
So long as his Wind Force advanced to a certain extent, Whirlwind would advance alongside it.
Whereas Tempest Point instead required the simultaneous advancement of both Wind Force and Lightning Force to complete the advancement of a stage.
Just like before, although Duan Ling Tian had comprehended Half-step Advanced Wind Force, because he didn’t comprehend Lightning Force, even if he executed Tempest Point, it was an incomplete Tempest Point, and it was even to the extent that it hadn’t even stepped into the Initial Stage.
The stage advancement of Tempest Point required both Wind Force and Lightning Force to satisfy the conditions at the same time.
Just like now, Duan Ling Tian’s Wind Force and Lightning Force had both stepped into the ranks of Half-step Advanced Force, and the Tempest Point they complemented each other to execute was not inferior to any high grade Earth Rank martial skill in the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
After all, this was a martial skill that was executed by using two type of Force that complemented each other!
This type of high grade Earth Rank martial skill was extremely rare.
Even within the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, there weren’t many martial skills of this kind.
Finally, Duan Ling Tian returned to his senses and looked at the little gold mouse that had descended onto his shoulder, then said with a smile, “Little Gold, looks like you’re still quite a distance away from breaking through to the next level. I thought you would be able to use the medicinal strength of the Monkey King Wine to break through…”
“Big Brother Ling Tian, give me a little more.” The little gold mouse looked eagerly at Duan Ling Tian, and her pair of jade green eyes were filled with yearning.
“Later.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head, then his brows raised as his gaze shot onto the vast city that was behind the distant clouds and mist. “We ought to enter the city… Once we’ve settled down in Dragon and Phoenix Academy, I’ll give you another two drops of Monkey King Wine, and it’s the last two drops.”
“Big Brother Ling Tian, you’re too stingy.” The little gold mouse sent a voice transmission once more, and she was slightly unhappy.
“It isn’t that I’m stingy, but the Monkey King Wine is similar to spirit fruits. Once consumed, consuming it again later on would cause its effects to reduce limitlessly… Even if I give you more, it’s just a waste! Moreover, I don’t have much Monkey King Wine in my possession.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and emitted a bitter laugh.
This Little Gold really thought that the Monkey King Wine in my possession is normal wine, and she can get as much as she wants?
The little gold mouse went silent for a moment when she heard Duan Ling Tian, then she became joyful once more.
She was like a child that hadn’t grown up.
“Let’s go, to the city!” Duan Ling Tian carried the little gold mouse on his shoulder as he flashed out to head towards the Imperial City.
Duan Ling Tian only descended from the sky when he arrived outside the gate of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial City.
Meanwhile, many Void Prying Stage martial artists that similarly descended from the sky had noticed Duan Ling Tian. At the beginning, they didn’t pay much attention to it. But when they clearly saw Duan Ling Tian’s appearance, they were all dumbstruck.
“This young man looks to be not even 25 years old, but he’s actually already a Void Prying Stage martial artist?” A Void Prying Stage martial artist couldn’t help but gulp down a mouthful of saliva as he spoke in shock.
“It’s impossible… Crazy Young Master, who’s the top amongst the five great young masters of our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom only barely stepped into the Void Prying Stage at the age of 29!” The companion of the former shook his head and didn’t dare believe it.
“Could it be that he took good care of his appearance?” The former was surprised and bewildered.
“Possibly.” The latter nodded seriously.
Waves of similar discussion sounded out from the Void Prying Stage martial artists that saw Duan Ling Tian descend from the sky.
Duan Ling Tian naturally heard it and was speechless.
“Took good care of my appearance?”
“To think that they had the nerve to think of such a thing.”
“However, they’ve reminded me that within the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, there are indeed many methods of maintaining one’s appearance, but most of them are assisted by medicinal pills. If it’s a woman or a martial artist that has stepped into the Void Prying Stage, then it isn’t so troublesome.” Duan Ling Tian searched through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor and he thought in his heart.
“That deadbeat dad of mine is over 50 years old, yet looks to be around 30… There are only two possibilities! One, he has consumed medicine that slows down aging of the appearance; two, he’d once broken through to the Void Prying Stage!” At this time, Duan Ling Tian thought of his deadbeat dad, Duan Ru Feng, at the first possible moment.
