Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian's voice echoed out in four directions. After which, he closed his eyes and stood before the immortal statue, his perception gushing into it once more.
Corporeal forms of towering battle qi floated before him, all of them had resplendent battle halos that transformed into law diagrams, circulating around all of them.
"This battle art is too profound, I wonder how much can I comprehend?" Qin Wentian didn't dare to be distracted as he immersed himself fully into comprehending this battle art. Time flowed by, the number of geniuses in the Eastern Sage Cliff grew fewer and fewer. And after that day, as expected, nobody else bothered Qin Wentian's cultivation. Occasionally, Qin Wentian's body would rumble and emit a battle halo.
Today in the void, terrifying rumbling sounds echoed from within his body as the terrifying battle will transformed into a supreme might vibrating him from within. Signs of his body exploding appeared once more as though it could no longer endure the impact. The battle halo around him shone resplendently but it seemed like it wanted to tear through his body as well.
It was almost impossible for ordinary people to endure this pain when cultivating this kind of battle art. It was too fearsome.
His bloodline thrummed as the ancient demon blood ignited. His entire body was covered in a blood-colored glow as rumbling sounds rang out unceasingly, protecting the stability of his body. The thunderous explosive sounds echoed continuously, it was as though his body had endured over a million times of pounding by the blacksmith's hammer, causing his body to evolve once more. The battle halo started to infuse battle qi in every part of his body as the battle qi radiating from him grew more and more intense.
Finally, the sound of a thunderclap boomed. Qin Wentian's body shone with resplendent battle light as a boundless battle intent gushed forth from him.
"Is this the second level of the battle art? How many levels has Gusu Tianqi comprehended?" Qin Wentian mused silently. He didn't stop and continued his comprehension.
The might of this battle art towered up into the skies and it was exceedingly tough to comprehend. He focused all his concentration and even then, it felt his comprehension of this art was exceedingly slow. Also, this art was very strange. If one couldn't even enter the 'gate' of its concept, no matter how long they took, they wouldn't be able to gain any insights from it.
Qin Wentian didn't know that he being able to comprehend the second level of the battle art within a short tens of days, igniting battle halos, was already an incredible feat. At the very least, only an extreme few of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect's disciples had accomplished it through the generations.
Upon sensing how extraordinarily powerful this battle art was, Qin Wentian cast aside all distractions and completely focus on this battle art. However, when he attempted
to comprehend the next level, he felt the battle will grow even more terrifying and every time it descended onto him, his body felt that it was about to explode from the tyrannical power.
After a few times, Qin Wentian's ancient demon blood ignited madly, akin to an absolute supreme demon king. At the same time, his other bloodline produced a gentle white runic glow akin to a candle flame that circulated around his body. Very swiftly, Qin Wentian exuded a layer of incomparable holy light. His entire person seemed to have change, like he was a descendent of a god king that emanated imposing might and holiness, where no one is allowed to blasphemy.
The tyrannical qi from the battle halo continued to seep into his body, but the effect on Qin Wentian became smaller and smaller, unable to cause his body to break down anymore. In fact, Qin Wentian seemed to be assimilating the battle halo instead. His perception seemed to be heightened to the max as more and more corporeal forms of battle will manifested before him.
The Hundred Immortals Forest gradually became more and more quiet as the frenzied combat slowed down. Those who still remained occupying a platform meant that they are true heaven chosen. The other geniuses had no way to contend against them and could only search other parts of the Eastern Sage Cliff for more good fortune. Also right now within the Eastern Sage Cliff, the number of geniuses also got increasingly fewer. Those who remained behind no longer sought to fight each other. They wanted to use this time to upgrade themselves and it was clear to them now that the selection test held by the Eastern Immortal Sage Sect was to recruit the most elite of all geniuses. Hence, upgrading their strength was the most important thing of all.
In the blink of an eye, half a year had passed since the geniuses stepped into the Eastern Sage Cliff. To immortals, this period of time couldn't be considered anything at all. For immortals, they would occasionally close their eyes during cultivation. And when they opened their eyes again, maybe tens of years have already passed. Hence, the immortals outside the cliff were content to wait patiently and the atmosphere was just as before.
Within the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect, outside an incomparably luxurious and majestic palace, a young man stood there calmly as though he was the lord of everything here, exuding an extraordinary aura.
"Your highness, these are the visit request cards for the various immortal kings. During the opening of the banquet, the immortal kings will all arrive to attend." At this moment, a powerful character came before the young man and bowed, speaking in an extremely polite manner.
"Mhm." The young man accepted the cards and started looking at them. When the banquet finishes, his royal father would accept three nominated disciples. These visit request cards were submitted by immortal kings who wanted to attend. There was no need for them to issue any invitations.
This young man, was none other than the youngest son of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, Dongsheng Ting. The banquet this time around would be hosted by him.
While reading through the cards, Dongsheng Ting's expression was extremely calm. Although these cards were personally submitted by immortal kings, as the son of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, his status was extraordinary and he had seen too many characters at the Immortal King Realm. Hence, he wasn't flustered at all because his horizons were already set extremely high. Even immortal kings had to be respectful to him.
But at this very moment, Dongsheng Ting's gaze froze before gleaming with sharpness as he stared at a visit request card.
There wasn't any content within there, only a single name - Princess of the Evergreen Empire.
"Princess Qing`er wishes to come?" Dongsheng Ting's eyes glowed with a dazzling light. That pair of eyes which remained unflustered when staring at the names of immortal kings were visibly bursting with emotions now after he saw the card.
He had wanted to contact Princess Qing`er many times before this, but she just couldn't be bothered with him. He wouldn't even have the chance to meet with her even if he wanted to. But now, what meaning did this visit request card hold?
A princess from the Evergreen Immortal Empire, was it by princess Qing`er? Did she want to personally attend this banquet?
During these few years, he had heard of the many deeds that Princess Qing`er had accomplished. As someone with an innate immortal king physique, she unceasingly lifted the seals on her body* and even took a supreme character in the immortal realms as her master. The speed of her improvement was godly and had already become a character of extreme fame.
This fame wasn't limited to the fact that she was a daughter of an immortal emperor. Her fame not only was in the region controlled by her royal father, but spanned across quite a few territories in the vast immortal realms. It was unknown how many people wanted to become the son-in-law of the Evergreen Immortal Emperor but one thing was for sure. All these candidates keen to pursue her had backgrounds and talents not in the slightest bit inferior to Dongsheng Ting. All of them were extraordinary individuals.
"This banquet, I want everyone to do their very best to prepare, surpassing the standards a hundred years ago. Let's hope the geniuses of this batch won't disappoint us." Dongsheng Ting commanded, his voice resounded through all eight directions.
"Understood, your highness."
"We hear and obey."
Voices rang out one after another, resounding through the air. At this moment, a light flashed as a terrifying character appeared beside Dongsheng Ting. The newcomer smiled and spoke, "Your highness, why are you so happy?"
Dongsheng Ting turned his gaze and passed the visit request card to this person. After this person read the card, his eyes also gleamed with sharpness before he smiled, "Haha, right now the light of the Evergreen Great Emperor's daughter Princess Qing`er is shining extremely brilliantly. Her father is an Immortal Emperor of an empire and her master is also a supreme character with status not inferior to that of her royal father. In addition to her innate talent and immortal-king physique, with the guidance of those two - her master and father, the man who can marry Princess Qing`er would definitely cause a commotion across the vast immortal realms.
That expert turned a gaze pregnant with meaning as he stared at Dongsheng Ting. Dongsheng Ting's eyes were filled with spirit and he did nothing to mask his intentions. Those in the surroundings all felt that only with such a maiden would she be worthy to match up to a character like him, Dongsheng Ting.
"Has the selection test at the Eastern Sage Cliff not concluded yet?" Dongsheng Ting asked.
"It should be soon." That expert replied.
"Okay." Dongsheng Ting nodded.
At this moment within the Eastern Sage Cliff, the various geniuses were all comprehending the immortal arts. Occasionally there would also be combat, and for the eighteen immortal statues at the forefront, there were people who left and people who took over. But for Qin Wentian, he was still there before the immortal statue he had chosen. The battle art contained in this immortal statue was simply too profound, he couldn't comprehend it completely.
In the void, Qin Wentian's body trembled endlessly as both powers of his bloodline erupted forth. Yet, despite the pressure, his countenance was exceedingly calm as he was in a state of complete focus. Even if there was a chaotic battle beside him, it wouldn't be able to disrupt his concentration.
The rumbling sounds echoed continuously as the battle wills blast into his body. Finally, a brilliant light flashed as Qin Wentian seemed to be immersed by boundless battle might, transforming into a young war king. The runic diagram of the battle wills before him were imprinted into his sea of consciousness.
As the terrifying battle intent gushed into his mind, Qin Wentian's body abruptly trembled intensely on the stone platform before the immortal statue. After which, a groan of agony rang out as his eyes opened suddenly, gleaming with sharpness and a towering battle intent.
Qin Wentian's mind shook violently. His will actually wasn't able to continue enduring the pressure and was forced out from the immortal statue. This was too terrifying, unless he stepped into the immortal-foundation realm, he would have no way to continue comprehending insights gained from this immortal statue.
"Third-level Battle Art." Qin Wentian mumbled, glancing at the immortal statue before him before dipping into a deep bow. He walked down the platform, he could no longer continue comprehending this particular art and would have to depend on the insights he had already gained.
At the instant Qin Wentian departed, several gazes turned to the immortal statue as another storm would soon begin.
"Senior, you've finished your comprehension as well." Jun Mengchen coincidentally ended his own comprehension. From the beginning till now, he too, had only chosen a single immortal statue to comprehend insights from.
"Mhm, how are you feeling now?" Qin Wentian smiled.
"Excellent. My strength have increased quite significantly, I think we truly have hope to accomplish what we came here for." Jun Mengchen's eyes burned with wildness. However, several people turned their attention onto these two as they silently speculated that the circumstances were unique and singular within the Eastern Sage Cliff. But once everyone exited this place, the scenario would soon be different. At that time, maybe the Blackpeak which Qin Wentian spared, would not spare him and might even come back with a vengeance!
Translator Note: *The seals were placed on Qing`er prior to sending her to a particle world. This way, should the Evergreen Emperor lose the war, his enemies wouldn't be able to hunt her down.
