War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens - Chapter 4654
4654 Instant Kill
Duan Ling Tian naturally knew that his approach was disrespectful, but he did not care. After all, following the principle of the strong being revered, he, a level-eight Dao Establishment cultivator, could be said as relatively polite considering the fact that his opponent was only a level-six Dao Establishment cultivator.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Soon enough, several figures flew out from the Misty Cloud Sect. They glared at Duan Ling Tian with hostile gazes.
Duan Ling Tian was not surprised by their reaction. After all, it was only normal for them to react in this manner.
“You’re Duan Ling Tian? Do you really think you’re worthy of challenging my junior granduncle for the title of the strongest powerhouse in the Distinct Province?”
A burly and bald man stepped forward at this moment, glaring at Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian was reminded of Lei Hong when he saw the other party. Their facial appearances were not the same, but they had similar height and body type.
‘I wonder if Lei Hong entered the Heaven Traversing Pagoda after the new entrances appeared? If he did, he’s definitely dead now. If not, then he’s likely in the Divine Land as well…’
After that, Duan Ling Tian smiled faintly at the burly and bald man and said, “Otherwise, why don’t you test my capabilities?”
“That’s what I thought as well,” the bald man said with a sneer. He raised his hand, releasing a surge of powerful energy that turned into a snake-like long whip. Without wasting time, he brandished the whip and flew toward Duan Ling Tian.
Without any warning, the long whip suddenly straightened itself and turned into a sharp sword, which was aimed at Duan Ling Tian’s forehead. The man stared at Duan Ling Tian and did not conceal the killing intent in his eyes at all.
“You want to kill me?” Duan Ling Tian asked, amused. After all, the man had grossly overestimated himself. Even the strongest person in the Misty Cloud Sect, a level-six Dao Establishment cultivator, was no match for him, let alone the bald man who was only a level-four Dao Establishment cultivator.
Based on the other party’s weapon of choice, it was clear to Duan Ling Tian that the other party cultivated the Whip Dao.
“Since you plan to kill me, don’t blame me for being ruthless,” Duan Ling Tian said expressionlessly. He did not dodge at all as the man approached him. He raised his hand casually, sending a sword ray whistling through the air.
The sword ray was like a meteor as it flew out. In just a blink of an eye, it pierced the bald man’s forehead.
The bald man, the people who came out with him, and the disciples guarding the entrance did not have time to react at all. Everything happened so quickly.
The bald man froze for a beat before he suddenly plummeted to the ground at a high speed.
Duan Ling Tian did not think twice and quickly collected the other party’s ring. Since the spatial rings in this place could not self-destruct, he would have access to the ring as long as the owner died.
Silence permeated the entire place for a few moments before the people of the Misty Cloud Sect finally reacted.
“Vice Sect Leader Shi is… dead?”
“Heavens! Vice Leader Shi was a level-four Dao Establishment cultivator, but this man killed him so easily? How strong is he exactly?”
The people from the Misty Cloud Sect were shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s strength. They also finally realized why he had so boldly challenged the Ascending Clouds Sage, the strongest powerhouse of the Misty Cloud Sect.
After regaining their senses, a few of them cried out in fear, shocking the other members of the sect who were still in the sect.
“Grandmaster, the sect is in danger! We need your help to deal with the enemy!”
“Grandmaster, the enemy has killed Junior Brother Shi Meng!”
These words stirred up a commotion in the Misty Cloud Sect.
“The enemy is so strong that we need the Grandmaster to personally make a move?”
“Who is he?”
“Are we in danger?”
As chaos descended, some elders and disciples, who were more astute, moved to the edge of the sect’s estate. They were ready to leave the sect and retreat to the mountains to take refuge if the situation called for it.
At this moment, a scoff rang from the depths of the Misty Cloud Sect’s estate. Shortly after, a man with snow-white hair and a robust appearance who was dressed in a Taoist robe appeared. Despite his snow-white hair, he seemed to be only in his middle age. He stared at Duan Ling Tian and said in an unfriendly tone, “Sir, it’s fine if you came to challenge me, but you’ve crossed the line by killing a member of the Misty Cloud Sect.”
Duan Ling Tian said expressionlessly, “You’re the Ascending Clouds Sage, right? Let me ask you, if someone intends to kill you, and you’re capable of killing the other party, would you have spared the other party’s life? If he did not try to kill me, I wouldn’t have bothered to kill him. After all, he was no different from an ant in my eyes.”
Although Duan Ling Tian’s words were arrogant, they were true. Shi Meng had only mastered the Whip Dao to the fourth stage and did not seem to have comprehended any other Dao. He was indeed no different from an ant in front of Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian could no longer use the laws, and by extension, his doppelgangers, after leaving the Myriad Worlds and the Outer Boundary, but he still had the Daos of Heaven and Earth he had comprehended. Not only did he comprehend the Sword Dao to the eighth stage, but he had also comprehended the Mastery Dao and the Limitless Dao to the seventh stage. With this alone, he was still comparable to, if not stronger than, a level–eight supreme powerhouse who comprehended a law to the paramount stage.
In a fit of anger, the Ascending Clouds Sage released a surge of violent energy that quickly turned into a sword ray. The sword ray, which held the sixth stage of the Sword Dao, shone brighter than the sun as it shot toward Duan Ling Tian.
The void trembled in its wake but showed no signs of spatial tearing.
Duan Ling Tian could not help but marvel inwardly at how stable the space in the Divine Land was. Similar to the Ascending Clouds Sage aside, his sword ray also did not tear the space earlier.
