Chapter 2169 The Fire Worship Sect Is In An Uproar
New from Sin City in the Central Region spread like a wildfire. Even the Fire Worship Sect in the distant Western Region had received news of what had happened.
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian revealed himself?”
“He only escaped from the trap left behind by three Eminent Devils that killed many powerhouses three years ago?”
“He went to Sin City the moment he came out to and swore on the lightning penalty oath that the Devil Clans from the Land of Exile have invaded the Lower Province?”
“Oh, God! The Devil Clans are here! I’m afraid it won’t be long before they invade the Upper Province!”
The Fire Worship Sect was in an uproar when they heard the news about Duan Ling Tian confirming the invasion of the Devil Clans in the Dao Martial Saint Land.
Since Duan Ling Tian had sworn on the lightning penalty oath, there was no doubt he was telling the truth since he was not killed by the lighting penalty!
Although everyone in the Fire Worship Sect was shaken by the news of the Devil Clans invading the Dao Martial Saint Land, they were not really afraid. After all, they were in one of three great sects in the Dao Martial Saint Land. If the Devil Clans invaded the Upper Province, they would be the last hope for mankind. If even people from the Fire Worship Sect were afraid, then there would be no hope left for humans!
“Nevertheless, I didn’t expect the Supreme Elder of Black Kshetra Sect, a powerhouse at the Ninth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage, to lie. He even issued a false statement saying that he has obtained Duan Ling Tian’s Super Saint Weapons because he was afraid other people would lay their hands on the Super Saint Weapons before he can get to them!”
“I’m more surprised at the fact that Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian didn’t have two Super Saint Weapons. He only has one Super Saint Weapon, the Devilseal Tablet.”
The Devilseal Tablet belongs to him anyway!”
Naturally, news about Duan Ling Tian killing Xie Kang Xun, the Golden Lion King, one of the Four Great Karmapas of Black Kshetra Sect, had also spread to the Fire Worship Sect, shocking everyone in the sect!
“Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian managed to severe both of Xie Kang Xun’s arms with just two strikes? He managed to kill him with his third strike? Xie Kang Xun didn’t even have a chance to defend himself?”
“Are you kidding? Although I admit Duan Ling Tian’s innate talent is amazing and he must have improved a lot in these three years, I still think it’s outrageous to say that Xie Kang Xun didn’t even have a chance to defend himself. Xie Kang Xun was not some nameless person!”
“Xie Kang Xun was one of Black Kshetra Sect’s Four Great Karmapas, the Golden Lion King. He had broken through to the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage for quite a while now. Moreover, he was considered as one of the strongest among those at the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage. How can someone like that be powerless against Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian?”
“It seems like Senior Brother Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base is at the Eighth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage?” “That’s ridiculous! I don’t believe it!”
When news about Duan Ling Tian killing Xie Kang Xun, the Black Kshetra Sect’s Golden Lion King, in three moves spread to the Fire Worship Sect, many people were shocked. However, many of them were skeptical as well. Even Duan Ling Tian’s close friends, Liu Yun and Liu Mu, found it hard to believe.
There was no doubt that Duan Ling Tian had an amazing innate talent. Three years ago, he even managed to kill Xie Zhong, the son of the Golden Lion King. However, most people found it hard to believe that he had broken through to the Eighth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage!
What a joke!
After breaking through to the Saint Celestial Stage, the gap between every form was extremely wide. It was extremely difficult to break through each form.
“In the past, even prodigies with violet Innate Spiritual Roots from the Fire Worship Sect needed several decades to break through to the Eighth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage from the First Form of the Saint Celestial Stage with the aid of the best cultivation environment…”
“In fact, I’m afraid it’s impossible for a prodigy with a violet Innate Spiritual Root at the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage to break through to the Eighth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage in just three years!”
“That’s true. There’s no way this news is real!”
No one from the Fire Worship Sect believed that Duan Ling Tian had killed Xie Kang Xun, the Golden Lion King of the Black Kshetra Sect. They thought the news was fake and had been greatly exaggerated.
“Duan Ling Tian is at the Eighth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage? Shame on those who believe this!” Elder Dong Lin from the Enforcement laughed when he heard the news.
Dong Lin’s eyes gleamed coldly as he muttered under his breath, “Duan Ling Tian, you finally showed up. I didn’t think you’ll be able to survive the trap left behind by three Eminent Devils…You’re really lucky! If you know what.s best for you, you better don’t return to the Fire Worship Sect. Even if I’m no match for you, my father will kill you for me!”
Dong Lin’s father was the Vice Hall Master of the Enforcement Hall, Dong Yuan Jin.
Meanwhile, Sanctum Leader Lu Tie of the Azure Dragon Sanctum and his direct disciple, Bu Hong, had also heard the news. Similarly, they thought the news was outrageous.
“Duan Ling Tian has broken through to the Eighth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage?”
It sounded like the biggest joke they had ever heard in their lives.
In the Fire Worship Sect’s Saint Land. Above the Saint Island.
Numerous floating islands could be seen here. At the highest point, only one floating island could be seen. It looked like an emperor overlooking his subjects. This place was the cultivation place for Tang Xuan, the Sect Leader of Fire Worship Sect.
The sound of wind whistling rang in the air, and a muscular figure arrived from the distance and hovered above the highest floating island in just a blink of an eye.
“Lord Sect Leader.”
This person hovered in the air as he bowed respectfully in the direction of the floating island. He sounded respectful and modest when he spoke. If other elders were around, they would recognize this person as one of the vice sect leaders of the Fire Worship Sect. His cultivation base was at the Sixth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage.
A gust of wind appeared the moment the Vice Sect Leader of Fire Worship Sect finished speaking. Then, a tall and sturdy figure appeared before him.
This tall and sturdy middle-aged man was dressed in a long white robe that was embroidered with flames. It was slightly similar to the exclusive uniforms for the elders and disciples in the Fire Worship Sect. Upon closer inspection, one would notice the embroidered flames on his robe was unique. It seemed to resemble a divine dragon. When worn, it seemed as though the divine dragon was protecting his body.
Although the middle-aged man was tall and sturdy and his features were chiseled, he did not look like a brute. Everything was in harmony. He had a noble air around him, making others feel like they should serve him.
This middle-aged man was none other than Sect Leader Tang Xuan of the Fire Worship Sect!
“Did something happen?”
Although the news from Sin City had spread throughout the Fire Worship Sect, Tang Xuan who had been in his cultivation place was not aware of it. However, he knew something must have happened if one of the vice sect leaders came to see him.
“Lord Sect Leader…” The vice sect Leader told Tang Xuan about Devil Clans invading the Lower Province.
“The Devil Clans have invaded the Lower Province of Dao Martial Saint Land?” Tang Xuan’s expression turned grim when he heard the news even though he had already broken through to the Ninth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage.
After all, the Devil Clans from the Land of Exile were extremely strong. Tang Xuan knew this very well since he had read the ancient texts in the Fire Worship Sect.
There was no shortage of cultivators at the Ninth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage in the Devil Clans. Moreover, there might even be Devils who had passed the Heavenly Tribulation but did not ascend.
Yes.” The vice sect leader nodded before he said hesitantly, “Speaking of… This news is actually confirmed by our Fire Worship Sect’s prodigy, Duan Ling Tian.”
Tang Xuan looked at the vice sect leader and asked, “Duan Ling Tian? The Fire Worship Sect’s prodigy who has two Super Saint Weapons?”
Since Tang Xuan came out from his closed-door cultivation, he had heard a little about Duan Ling Tian, the prodigy of the Fire Worship Sect.
“Yes.” The vice sect leader nodded again. “I heard he entered the trap left behind by the three Eminent Devils three years ago. He managed to survive when others had been killed or eliminated. He only escaped that place recently”
“He stayed in there for three years?” Tang Xuan said, “And it seems like that old fart from Black Kshetra Sect lied. I was wondering when he had sworn on a lightning penalty oath. As turns out, he had falsely released a statement so he could get his hands on Duan Ling Tian’s Super Saint Weapons.”
“Lord Sect Leader, Duan Ling Tian only has one Super Saint Weapon. It’s the Devilseal Tablet. He doesn’t have the Traceless Sword… He swore on the lightning penalty oath,” the vice sect leader said.
“Since the Devil Clans from the Land of Exile have invaded, the Traceless Sword is not as useful as the Devilseal Tablet!’ Tang Xuan said with a glint in his eyes.
The vice sect leader heard Tang Xuan’s words and agreed with him.
The Devilseal Tablet was a Super Saint Weapon that could subdue Devils after all!
