Chapter 112: Duan Ling Tian On a Rampage
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor:
When Duan Ling Tian woke up at dawn the next day, he glanced at Meng Quan, who was soundly sleeping on the ground, before shaking his head and smiling.
He then sat down cross-legged and started cultivating the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique!
Concentrating his spirit and calming the energy within his body, Duan Ling Tian started circulating the Raging Python Form's mental cultivation method...
Last night, he felt his cultivation bottleneck slightly loosening, and now was the perfect time to strike the iron when it was hot and charge past his bottleneck in one go!
Duan Ling Tian completely forgot about the passage of time as he cultivated.
After an unknown amount of time.
Finally, Duan Ling Tian broke through the last profound gateway within his meridians.... And in next to no time, the Origin Energy inside his Dantian underwent a metamorphosis.
He broke through!
Duan Ling Tian opened his eyes in delight, and a bright light flashed within.
Breaking through to the third level of the Core Formation Stage would mean that he could once again further temper his fleshly body.
Presently, even without the use of a spirit weapon, he could exert the strength of eight ancient mammoths, which is a strength he previously required a spirit weapon to exert...
If he were to use a spirit weapon, he would be able to exert the strength of nine ancient mammoths!
Once he completes the tempering of his fleshly body for the third level of the Core Formation Stage...
His strength will be even more formidable!
At that time, he will be able to easily exert the strength of 10 ancient mammoths when relying on a spirit weapon. Moreover, it was at a level that was nearing the strength of 11 ancient mammoths...
Completely surpassing the seventh level of the Core Formation Stage and slightly inferior to the eighth level of the Core Formation Stage.
Of course, the precondition would be that the opponent didn't possess a spirit weapon.
"Now, even if I don't use a spirit weapon, my strength is sufficient to be comparable to Duan Ling Xing's at that time." Duan Ling Tian's eyes flashed with a trace of coldness.
"However, that was the Duan Ling Xing of a year ago. Duan Ling Xing's current strength is surely even more formidable now, even to the extent that he might have broken through to the seventh level of the Core Formation Stage... As a disciple of the Duan Clan, spirit weapons aren't anything rare to him.
"Once I complete the tempering of my fleshly body for the third level of the Core Formation Stage, my strength should be slightly superior to his, or at least be comparable to his."
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath. "I must break through to the fourth level of the Core Formation Stage before I enter Paladin Academy... At that time, I'll vent the hatred in my heart by making Duan Ling Xing regret what he did that day, then I'll let him go repent in hell!"
Duan Ling Tian's body emitted a bloody killing intent in an unrestrained manner!
"Duan Ling Tian!"
Just at this moment, a hurried voice sounded as a flustered Luo Cheng rushed in.
Instantly, Luo Cheng's face froze as he was affected by Duan Ling Tian's killing intent, causing his entire body to tremble and his face to turn ghastly pale...
Only after Duan Ling Tian withdrew his killing intent did Luo Cheng catch his breath.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian noticed that both Xiao Yu and Meng Quan weren't present, and he realized that quite some time had passed since he started cultivating.
"Xiao Yu and Meng Quan were walled up by Yu Xiang and his Yu Clan members. I noticed the situation wasn't good, so I hurriedly came back to get you." Luo Cheng had an anxious expression as he hastily spoke.
"What?" Duan Ling Tian's face sank, and a fierce light flashed in his eyes.
Did that Yu Xiang really think that he was someone so easy to bully?
"Let's go!" Duan Ling Tian brought Luo Cheng along as he swiftly left the tent.
At an empty space on a side of the Iron Blood Army's drill grounds.
Many youths surrounded this area and watched the scene.
In the crowd, Meng Quan was on the floor with heavy injuries and in an extremely sorry state.
Besides him was a few steamed buns that were tainted in mud and grass...
This was the breakfast he was bringing back for Duan Ling Tian!
A cold and indifferent voice sounded as Xiao Yu, who had a gloomy expression, flashed out.
Exploding forth with his entire strength of 4 ancient mammoths...
Shadowless Drifting Light!
Xiao Yu seemed to have transformed into a bolt of lightning with unparalleled speed as he flashed towards Yu Xiang in full fury.
"Your martial skill isn't bad, but unfortunately, the difference between our strengths is the strength of two ancient mammoths! You aren't my match." Yu Xiao scornfully glanced at Xiao Yu.
In the next moment, Yu Xiang's body moved as well as six ancient mammoths silhouettes condensed into form above him.
In the blink of an eye, Yu Xiang's body jerked and his speed far exceeded Xiao Yu's, so he passed Xiao Yu and arrived behind him.
He struck out with his fist and seemed to have not even used a martial skill out of disdain, directly blasting Xiao Yu away.
Even though Yu Xiang didn't use a martial skill, his fist contained the strength of six ancient mammoths after all, and thus it easily shattered Xiao Yu's defensive qi barrier and blasted him away.
Xiao Yu dropped to the ground with a crash before fainting.
"Not even worth a single blow!" Yu Xiang had an expression of disdain.
The Core Formation Stage was divided into nine levels, and it had two phases.
The first phase was from the third level of the Core Formation Stage to the fourth level of the Core Formation Stage, and the second phase was from the sixth level of the Core Formation Stage to the seventh level of the Core Formation Stage...
There was a difference of the strength of two ancient mammoths between these phases!
As for the other levels of cultivation in the Core Formation Stage, every increase in level would grant an extra ancient mammoth worth of strength...
Only these two phases were comparatively special!
"Xiao Yu's offensive martial skill and movement technique are both high grade Profound Rank martial skills and are both cultivated to the Perfection Stage; his comprehension ability is truly shocking! But unfortunately, his cultivation is inferior to Yu Xiang's by too much...."
"Yeah, the difference between a third level Core Formation martial artist and a fourth level Core Formation martial artist is truly too great, and they're in entirely different realms!"
"If Xiao Yu was also at the fourth level of the Core Formation Stage, with the might of his offensive martial skill and movement technique, Xiao Yu wouldn't necessarily be his match."
The spectating youths all sighed, as they felt pity for Xiao Yu.
"What do you want?" Meng Quan consumed a gold injury pill and had just slightly recovered his injuries when he noticed Yu Xiang walking over, causing his expression to unconsciously turn grim.
Yu Xiang stomped his foot on the steamed bun, causing it to become flat and be imprinted with his shoe print.
"Eat it!" A malicious smile appeared on Yu Xiang's face as he looked at Meng Quan.
"You...You better not go too far!" Meng Quan's face distorted. He didn't expect Yu Xiang would humiliate him in such a way.
The some of the surrounding youths couldn't stand to watch any longer, but no one dared to speak out, as they were too afraid of Yu Xiang.
"What's wrong, Meng Quan? My brother, Yu Xiang, is entertaining you with a steamed bun, but you're f**king pushing your luck? Do you want us to feed you?" Yu Xiao walked in large strides and brought along the other three Yu Clan disciples before clinging onto Yu Xiang's strength to bully Meng Quan.
"Brother Xiang, you just have to say the word and I'll get him to eat all these steamed buns." The Yu Clan youths walked forward two steps before they stomped all the other steamed buns flat and imprinted their shoe prints on them.
"OK..." Yu Xiang started laughing.
However, his smile froze in next to no time...
"OK my ass!" An explosive roar accompanied by an incomparably swift figure howled through the air and approached like a tempest.
The crowd hastily opened up a path before gazing slack-jawed at the space above the figure, as there were seven ancient mammoth silhouettes that dashed on in tow...
"The strength of seven ancient mammoths! Fifth level of the Core Formation Stage!" many youths exclaimed.
"Duan Ling Tian!" Yu Xiang looked at the violet-clothed youth that was flying towards him. His expression went pale when he noticed the seven ancient mammoth silhouettes above the youth.
The first thought that he had was that Duan Ling Tian had broken through!
Duan Ling Tian's skills were something he had knowledge of, and thus he knew that he wasn't a match for him, who now had an extra mammoth worth of strength.
Yu Xiang's legs jerked before flashing out. He wanted to flee.
"Want to flee? Can you?" Duan Ling Tian sneered.
This Yu Xiang wanted to flee?
Before long, Yu Xiang noticed that Duan Ling Tian's incomparably swift figure had actually made a strange circle and seemed like a spirit serpent as he directly flashed over to block his path.
Yu Xiang's face sank as he shouted, in a low voice, "Duan Ling Tian, my elder brother is a member of the Iron Blood Army and is an eighth level Core Formation martial artist. If you dare to do anything to me, he won't let you off!"
"Even if the person behind you was the Emperor, he still wouldn't be able to save you today!" Duan Ling Tian's gaze went cold. He seemed to have transformed into a cannonball as he flew out.
Attacking out of rage, his arm ruthlessly swung out like a raging python swinging its tail!
As far back as when he noticed the seven ancient mammoth silhouettes above Duan Ling Tian, fear had arisen in Yu Xiang's heart.
Currently, he only had time to circulate his defensive martial skill...
Instantly, his defensive qi barrier was shattered from the force of Duan Ling Tian's arm, and he was blasted away over ten meters before finally falling flat on his face.
Yu Xiang only caught his breath after spitting out two mouthfuls of blood. "Go get my brother!" he roared.
What he said was obviously directed towards Yu Xiao and the other three Yu Clan disciples.
After seeing Duan Ling Tian exert the strength of seven ancient mammoths, Yu Xiang's group were all scared s**tless, and they were just watching Duan Ling Tian heavily injured Yu Xiang...
At this moment, they heard Yu Xiang's orders.
"Let's go!" Yu Xiao shouted in a low voice. He wanted to take his fellow clan disciples and sneak off...
Spirit Serpent Movement Technique!
Duan Ling Tian's body moved at the first possible moment and blocked their path.
The expressions of Yu Xiao's group of four instantly went pale.
Duan Ling Tian horizontally swept out his arm that carried the might to sweep away anything before him, blasting away Yu Xiao's group of four and causing them all heavy injuries that made it difficult for them to even stand.
From the moment Duan Ling Tian made his first move until the five Yu Clan youths were on the floor, it was only about 10 breaths of time.
Meanwhile, the surrounding youths finally reacted.
"F**K! The strength of seven ancient mammoths. Duan Ling Tian actually broke through to the fifth level of the Core Formation Stage!"
"Freak! How old is he?"
"A monstrous martial artist like him has never appeared before in our Crimson Sky Kingdom, right?"
"That Yu Xiang really is misfortunate to have offended Duan Ling Tian."
"Xiao Yu and Meng Quan are both Duan Ling Tian's friends, so Duan Ling Tian probably won't let the matter go that easily."
Under the gazes of everyone present, Xiao Yu was shaken awake by Luo Cheng before consuming a gold injury pill.
Duan Ling Tian seized all of the medicinal pills in the possession of the five Yu Clan youths, causing them to be unable to consume gold injury pills to recover their injuries.
"Are you alright?" Duan Ling Tian extended his hand and pulled Meng Quan up.
"Luckily, you arrived in time; otherwise, I would have been humiliated by them." Meng Quan had a slight lingering fear.
"Since they like those steamed buns so much, you can return the favor to them." Duan Ling Tian eyes flickered as a sneer appeared on the corners of his mouth.
"Haha... I nearly forgot." Meng Quan laughed as he picked up the steamed buns that had been stomped flat, then he walked over to the four Yu Clan youths and stuffed the buns into their mouths one by one...
At this moment, he was fearless; he had thrown the term "County City Yu Clan" to the back of his head.
When he noticed that the four Yu Clan youths weren't cooperating, Duan Ling Tian said, in a cold voice, "If you dare to spit it out, I'll shatter all your teeth!"
Instantly, their bodies trembled and they swallowed down the steamed buns that they stomped on earlier. Their faces had expressions full of humiliation and resentment...
The youths that were spectating the scene were all dumbstruck.
Suddenly, a youth that was slightly thin turned around and left.
"If I go notify Yu Xiang's elder brother now, it would be considered as doing a favor to the Yu Clan.... Gaining the favor of the Yu Clan will provide me with countless benefits!"
