Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Indigo Spiritual Root! Duan Ling Tian was delighted by this! His Innate Spiritual Root would definitely turn indigo if he devoured a yellow Innate Spiritual Root! Although Yao Bu Ju was only a sectless cultivator, he was still the leader of an alliance in Sin City. With his cultivation base at the Third Form of the Saint Celestial Stage, his Innate Spiritual Root would definitely not be bad. At least it would definitely be better than a yellow Innate Spiritual Root.
Before arriving at Sin City ten days ago, Duan Ling Tian had disguised himself. His current disguise was different from the ones he used at the Fire Worship Sect and Clarity City.
Since the members of the Ground Ax Alliance who were present were merely Quintessential Saint cultivators, Duan Ling Tian did not think it was necessary to use the 10,000 Swords Territory to block the sight of the members of the Ground Ax Alliance’s members when he devoured Yao Bu Ji’s Innate Spiritual Root.
Under the horrified gazes of the Ground Ax Alliance’s members, Duan Ling Tian called out to Elder Huo and quickly devoured Yao Bu Ji’s Innate Spiritual Root with Elder Huo’s help.”Elder Huo!”
Indeed, Yao Bu Ji did not disappoint Duan Ling Tian. Yao Bu Ji possessed a blue Innate Spiritual Root!
After devouring Yao Bu Ji’s Innate Spiritual Root, Duan Ling Tian’s Innate Spiritual Root successfully transformed into an indigo Innate Spiritual Root just like Elder Huo had predicted.
“Your Innate Spiritual Root is now an indigo Innate Spiritual Root.”
When Duan Ling Tian heard Elder Huo’s words, he instantly tried to sense the Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy in his surroundings. He used his cultivation method, the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, to absorb the Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy and circulated it a few times in his body.
‘This cultivation speed is more than one time faster than my previous speed!’ Duan Ling Tian’s eyes shone as bright as the stars when he discovered his new cultivation speed.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian took Yao Bu Ji’s Spatial Ring and drop his body to the ground!
Yao Bu Ji’s body fell on the ground and turned into a bloody pulp.
When the members of the Ground Ax Alliance heard the sound of their leader falling to the ground, they quickly regained their senses. Their eyes were filled with terror when they looked at Duan Ling Tian as though they had seen a ghost. When they recalled what had just happened, they still found it hard to believe.
“I… Am I dreaming?”
“Someone as strong as our leader was killed in just a move! He didn’t even have time to finish his sentence!”
“That man didn’t even launch a sneak attack. He directly attacked our leader, and yet, our leader didn’t even stand a chance to react before he was killed.”
The nine Ground Ax Alliance’s members whispered among themselves with trembling voices. The purple-clad young man’s strength was out of their expectations. No matter what, their leader was still a powerhouse at the Third Form of the Saint Celestial Stage who was ranked 266th on the Supreme Saint Ranking. Someone like that was killed in just a move by the purple-clad young man! The purple-clad young man had to be terrifyingly strong! Was he at the Fourth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage or higher?
Duan Ling Tian overheard the conversations between the Ground Ax Alliance’s members and glanced at them indifferently. He planned to leave them alone. His body moved as he prepared to leave. In his opinion, these Ground Ax Alliance’s members were sent by their leader, Yao Bu Ji, to follow him. They did not intend to kill him so he had no reason to kill them as well. Since Yao Bu Ji was dead, there was less of a reason for him to make things difficult for them.
Just as Duan Ling Tian was about to leave, one of the Ground Ax Alliance’s members mustered up his courage and called out, “My lord!”
It took Duan Ling Tian by surprised, and he came to a halt.
“Hm?” Duan Ling Tian glanced at the man from the Ground Ax Alliance who called him. He asked with a slight frown, “Is there anything else?”
The other Ground Ax Alliance’s members were just about to sigh in relief when they saw Duan Ling Tian was preparing to leave and had no intention of making things difficult for them. However, their hearts jolted in fear when they heard their companion calling out to Duan Ling Tian.
“Idiot! What do you think you’re doing?!”
“Damn it! This jinx was about to leave… Why are you stopping him? What if he regrets letting us go and decides to kill us?”
“Don’t drag us along with you if you want to die!”
The other Ground Ax Alliance’s members were sending angry Voice Transmissions to the Ground Ax Alliance’s member who stopped Duan Ling Tian from leaving. How they wished they could turn back time and seal his mouth!
However, the Ground Ax Alliance member who had spoken up ignored them. He looked at Duan Ling Tian respectfully as he asked, “My lord, may I know your name?”
“Is there a reason why you’re asking?” Duan Ling Tian said coldly as though he had no intention of revealing his name.
“My lord! Previously, Yao Bu Ji, the former leader of the Ground Ax Alliance, was ranked 266th on the Supreme Saint Ranking,” the Ground Ax Alliance’s member said solemnly, “Today, we’re lucky enough to witness your strength when you killed Yao Bu Ji. If we know your name, we can help spread the news of you replacing Yao Bu Ji on the Supreme Saint Ranking! However, if your rank’s already higher than Yao Bu Ji, then, please treat it as though I didn’t say anything!” The Ground Ax Alliance’s words sounded sincere as though he was saying it for Duan Ling Tian’s benefit.
Upon hearing this, the other Ground Ax Alliance’s members felt vexed. Why did they not think of this? If they had spoken up, they would be able to flatter this powerhouse! They might not have to worry about him regretting his decision and coming back to kill them!
“My lord, he’s right! If you tell us your name, we’ll definitely spread word about the incident today.”
“Don’t worry, my lord… If there’s anyone who doesn’t believe it, we’re willing to swear on the lightning penalty oath to prove that we’re telling the truth!”
Although the other eight Ground Ax Alliance’s members were slower on the uptake, it did not stop them from fawning over Duan Ling Tian like the other member of the Ground Ax Alliance.
Duan Ling Tian looked at the Ground Ax Alliance’s members and nodded slightly as he said, “I’m Li Feng!” As soon as he finished speaking, he vanished before the nine members of Ground Ax Alliance like a gust of wind.
After Duan Ling Tian’s departure, the nine Ground Ax Alliance’s members sighed in relief when they thought about how they managed to escape death.
“Li Feng?… Is there anyone like that on the Supreme Saint Ranking?” One of the Ground Ax Alliance’s members asked curiously.
“I pay very close attention to the Supreme Saint Ranking… I don’t think there’s anyone called Li Feng that’s ranked on the Supreme Saint Ranking! It seems like Li Feng is a reclusive sectless cultivator!” Another Ground Ax Alliance member said.
Although the Supreme Saint Ranking was a list of 1,000 strongest people in the Dao Martial Land, there were many powerful reclusive people who preferred to stay hidden. Therefore, they were not ranked on the Supreme Saint Ranking regardless of how strong they were.
In the Ground Ax Alliance’s members’ opinion, Li Feng who had killed the Leader of the Ground Ax Alliance, Yao Bu Ji, was probably a reclusive sectless cultivator. Now that he had made his appearance, he instantly shot up to 266th place on the Supreme Saint Ranking.
“Li Feng’s going to be famous in Sin City and the Dao Martial Saint Land after today!” All the members of the Ground Ax Alliance were certain of this.
The people from the Upper Province of the Dao Martial Saint Land had the opinion that the Upper Province alone was enough to represent the entire Dao Martial Saint Land.
This was indeed the truth. Currently, the Lower Province was much weaker than the Upper Province. After all, all the strong ones tended to live in the Upper Province!
When the group of Ground Ax Alliance’s members returned to Sin City, they did not dare to slack and began to spread word about what had happened. The news instantly caused a stir in Sin City.
Yao Bu Ji, the Leader of the Ground Ax Alliance, was a cultivator at the Third Form of the Saint Celestial Stage who ranked 266th on the Supreme Saint Ranking. He could be considered as famous in Sin City. It was only natural that his death would shock the sectless cultivators in Sin City.
“A powerhouse called Li Feng killed Yao Bu Ji? Moreover, he killed Yao Bu Ji with a direct attack without using any underhanded methods?”
Many sectless cultivators were shocked when they learned about this.
“Yao Bu Ji could be considered as above average among powerhouses at the Third Form of the Saint Celestial Stage in the Dao Martial Saint Land… Someone like that was killed in just one move? Li Feng has to be at the powerhouse at the Fourth Form Saint of the Celestial Stage or above!” Many people speculated.
They believed that even the strongest powerhouses at the Third Form of the Saint Celestial Stage in the Dao Martial Saint Land would not be able to kill Yao Bu Ji in just a move!
As the news spread, Li Feng’s name spread like a wildfire in Sin City.
