Chapter 941: The Strength of 1000 Ancient Horned Dragons!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After dodging Zi Shang’s attack and exiting the high platform, Duan Ling Tian originally wanted to use all his might to cast an attack in the air and rely on the air resistance to generate recoil so he could push his body back on the high platform. After all, there was a Flight Prohibiting Formation here that prevented him from flying.
However, he discovered after several tries that the air in the surroundings did not produce even the slightest bit of resistance. His energy swept out and vanished without a trace. It was as if it was buried in a bale of cotton as though it was never cast in the first place. Let alone explosions, not even the sound of wind whistling could be heard at all.
“What’s happening?!” Deeply in shock, Duan Ling Tian ransacked the memories of the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure in his mind.
Finally, he managed to figure out the answer.
“So it’s like that huh? Apart from forbidding martial artists from flying, the resistance in the air would disappear as well if a Flight Prohibiting Formation is inscribed and laid out by a Martial Emperor Stage Inscription Master.” Horror immediately dawned on Duan Ling Tian’s face as soon as he figured out the reason.
At this moment, he could feel that he was falling faster and faster. If things continued like this, he would most likely be smashed into a pulp of bloody meat when he reached the bottom.
Suddenly, a faint sound reverberated by Duan Ling Tian’s ears. It took him by surprise so much that he could not help but instantly narrow his eyes.
When he turned his head over to the source of the sound, he found out Zi Shang, who was falling together with him, was still trying to attack him under such circumstances.
Milky Origin Energy vibrated in Zi Shang’s hand before it transformed into a wave of majestic crimson flame. When it merged with waves of solidified blue wind chi, the flame suddenly rose without any warning.
At the same time, the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above Zi Shang was continuously transforming too.
Initially, it was only 100 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons.
Subsequently, another 200 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons appeared as well.
It was then followed closely by the emergence of another 400 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons.
Finally, as the blue chi entered the flames, it rose up even higher and another 100 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons made their appearance.
“That’s why. I’ve wondered how it’s possible for this Zi Shang who’s only at the Seventh Level Void Interpretation to have such a fast speed and could appear before my eyes in just a blink of an eye.” Duan Ling Tian could not help but squint his eyes immediately when he saw this scene. A look of dismay filled his face at once. “So it turns out that he has comprehended the First Level Advance Fire Concept and Third Level Advance Wind Concept! Moreover, his Fire Concept has an additional strength of 100 ancient horned dragons after he fuels his Fire Concept with his Wind Concept!” Duan Ling Tian murmured to himself before he gasped.
It did not even cross his mind that Zi Shang’s strength would be so greatly elevated after just a few months.
He could still remember that time during the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties that was organized by Skywolf Fort, Zi Shang was merely a Second Level Void Interpretation martial artist who had comprehended two Concepts. At that time, his Wind Concept was slightly more powerful than the other one, but it was not really that powerful either.
Today, when he came across Zi Shang again, he immediately used his Spiritual Energy to probe his current cultivation base — it was at the Seventh Level Void Interpretation.
He was not surprised by this at all.
Although Zi Shang was only a Second Level Void Interpretation martial artist previously, Skywolf Fort would certainly spare no effort in training him if they really saw him as the trump card for entering the Martial Emperor’s secret treasure this time.
The spirit fruits in Skywolf Fort would undoubtedly be used on him as well.
With Skywolf Fort’s strength, it was not a difficult task to raise Zi Shang from a Second Level Void Interpretation martial artist to a Seventh Level Void Interpretation martial artist in a few months.
However, the problem was a martial artist’s cultivation base could be raised up in a short period of time using spirit fruits, but it was different for Concepts. No matter how many Concept Fragments one had, the speed of elevating a Concept was ultimately limited.
“Perhaps the Skywolf Fort has a Profound Assimilation Formation as well. However, just the Profound Assimilation Formation alone is not enough for Zi Shang to have such a great improvement! Hmm, unless he’s like me, and he can merge his Spiritual Energy with it …” The moment Duan Ling Tian thought of this, the expression on his face froze instantly. He narrowed his eyes as he murmured, “Don’t tell me a soul remnant that might belong to a Martial Emperor is hidden inside Zi Shang’s body? Perhaps Zi Sang has some methods that allowed him to obtain a benefit that’s the same as mine in the Profound Assimilation Formation?”
Duan Ling Tian was immediately hit by a pang of realization.
Although it was only a soul remnant, it was still a soul remnant that might belong to a Martial Emperor. It was not unusual if it had some unique techniques.
Moreover, the Profound Assimilation Formation was only an Inscription Formation that was arranged by a Martial Monarch Stage Inscription Master, it was not difficult for a Martial Emperor’s soul to tamper with it.
“Huh?” At this moment, Duan Ling Tian who casually swept a glance at Zi Shang noticed the seven-foot long spear in his palm as he lifted his hand up — It was a spirit spear.
After the wind chi and flames had integrated with the spear, the seven-foot long spear was completely covered in the wind chi and flames. It was enshrouded with blue and red energy.
At the same time, another 78 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons appeared on top of Zi Shang’s head.
Duan Ling Tian was no longer surprised when he saw this.
When Zi Shang took out the seven-foot long spear, he could already see that it was a grade two spirit spear.
A grade two spirit weapon that was crafted by an ordinary grade two weapon craftsman could only have a 78% boost at the most, similar to the seven-foot long spear that was in Zi Shang’s hand right now.
The Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above Zi Shang accumulated into 878 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons. It was accumulating its strength, waiting to be launched at any given time.
All of a sudden, a sword materialized in Duan Ling Tian’s hand. It was a sword that constantly emitted an extraordinary aura — it was the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword.
When the grade two spirit spear trembled in Zi Shang’s hand and charged towards him, he transfused his Origin Energy into the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Swords without any hesitation. It was an action that was as easy as breaking dry branches.
In an instant, the Heaven and Earth Energy whirled above Duan Ling Tian and rapidly solidified into the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon.
The silhouettes of 400 ancient horned dragons appeared out of thin air.
A First Level Void Transformation martial artist’s full strength was equal to the strength of 200 ancient horned dragons!
The Quasi Royal Grade Spirit had a 100% boost. With Duan Ling Tian’s Origin Energy as the foundation, it had another boost of 200 ancient horned dragons’ strength!
The two of them added together equaled to the strength of 400 ancient horned dragons.
— and Duan Ling Tian had not even activated his Concept yet.
A rush of Concept entered the Origin Energy like shadows, they intertwined around the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword. A khaki energy immediately appeared, followed closely by purple lightning that was like a shadow.
Another wave of tyrannical aura appeared on the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword.
Apart from that, gusts of solidified wind chi were entangled around the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword as well.
In just an instant, the Heaven and Earth Energy above Duan Ling Tian swirled, and a great transformation could be seen on the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon.
Apart from the 400 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons, there were another 600 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons that materialized out of thin air. Both of them added up together were 1000 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons…
The four Concepts added up together were equal to the strength of 600 ancient horned dragons.
Among the Concepts, the strength of 300 ancient horned dragons actually came from the Earth, Thunder and Sword Concepts that possessed the strength of 100 ancient horned dragons each. The other 300 ancient horned dragons’ strength came from the Wind Concept alone.
When Duan Ling Tian initially entered the Profound Assimilation Formation, out of the four Concepts that he comprehended, only the Wind Concept was in the Void Interpretation Stage. The other three were only at the Void Initiation Stage.
Due to this reason, Duan Ling Tian’s Wind concept had the greatest improvement in the Profound Assimilation Formation. It was raised up to the Second Level Advance Stage in just one go!
Second Level Advance Wind Concept was equivalent to the strength of 300 ancient horned dragons!
Duan Ling Tian stood still holding his sword when faced with Zi Shang’s spear attack that contained the strength of 878 ancient horned dragons. A scornful smile could be seen on the corner of his mouth.
1000 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons were ready to launch above his head.
“ATTACK!” The spear that contained Zi Shang’s full force was launched right away. The Wind and Fire Energy that was on the spear rose up tremendously and transformed into a swift Wind-Fire Spear Ray before charging at Duan Ling Tian in full fury.
Although Zi Shang’s wind and fire spear ray contained tremendous power, there was still no sound of wind-whistling or explosion due to the Flight Prohibiting Formation that had sucked out the resistance in the air.
Everything seemed to be especially serene, so serene that it was kind of strange.
“Hurmph! You’ll definitely die this time!” After the Spear Ray shot out from his grade two spirit spear, a sneer appeared on the corner of Zi Shang’s mouth.
However, the sneer on the corner of Zi Shang’s mouth very quickly froze again.
“IMPOSSIBLE!” Zi Shang had lifted his head up. He had originally wanted to witness the scene where Duan Ling Tian was pierced by the Spear Ray. However, to his surprise, he witnessed a scene that tore his heart apart instead.
‘I must be dreaming!’ Zi Shang bellowed in his heart.
Zi Shang’s eyes narrowed instantly as he stared at the 1000 silhouettes of ancient horned dragons. His face was filled with horror while his eyes were filled with disbelief.
“How’s this possible?! How can this Duan Ling Tian possess such a mighty strength?!” Zi Shang refused to believe this to be true.
— At this moment, Duan Ling Tian finally made his move.
In the face of the swift and soundless Spear Ray that was sent out by Zi Shang, a mocking smile crept up on the corner of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth. The Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword in his hand shook for a moment before it welcomed that menacing Spear Ray.
Sword Drawing Art!
Duan Ling Tian was as swift as a lightning. The spirit sword in his hand thrust forward at the Spear Ray’s side.
The strength of 1000 ancient horned dragons swept out and wiped out the Spear Ray that contained the strength of 878 ancient horned dragons without any resistance like crushing dry weeds.
An enormous sound blasted. It was the sound of the Spear Ray exploding.
At the same time, with the help of the recoil energy formed from the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword smashing the Spear Ray, Duan Ling Tian abruptly flew out to a distance.
It was to the position where Zi Shang was currently at.
Zi Shang’s body was still falling downward. However, the speed that he was falling was not worth mentioning at all before Duan Ling Tian’s current swift speed.
“Zi Shang!” When Duan Ling Tian charged towards Zi Shang, his eyes were filled with extreme coldness, and his killing intent was apparent.
Zi Shang had given him a lot of trouble in the past.
Last time, he was almost killed by six Skywolf Fort elders because of Zi Shang. At that time, Ta Mu blocked the attack for him and sacrificed his own life.
A debt of blood should be paid with blood!
All of a sudden, the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword on Duan Ling Tian’s hand shone icily.
