Chapter 3875: 4,000 War Points
Since the beginning of the Imperial War, the Tai Yi Celestial Sect had lost more rudimentary Lords of Gods compared to intermediate Lords of Gods. Only fewer than ten intermediate Lords of Gods, who were inner elders, had perished. For this reason, the consecutive deaths of their two inner elders, Fang Yi Ming and Wang Liu An, were very shocking.
“Elder Fang and Elder Wang died within 15 minutes of each other. Were they killed by the same person or was it just a coincidence?”
“I don’t know. I only know they were both on bad terms.”
“Their enmity was so deep that I wouldn’t put it past them to kill each other…”
“Then, perhaps, they were fighting, and someone from the Flying Dragon Sect took advantage of the situation?”
“That’s quite possible…”
“I disagree. Not only would it be disadvantageous to them to fight among themselves on the Lord Battlefield, but they would be severely punished as well if they were found out by the sect.”
Needless to say, Fang Yi Ming and Wang Liu An’s deaths stirred up a commotion in the Tai Yi Sect. Regardless of what happened, the two deaths were a great loss to the Tai Yi Sect. With their deaths, the death toll of the inner elders of the Tai Yi Sect had risen to nine.
“So far nine inner elders and one Underworld Elder have perished. The Flying Dragon Sect has lost two White Dragon Elders and five inner elders.”
“Initially, we gained an advantage over the Flying Dragon Sect, but now, the tide has turned…”
“Damn it! I won’t be able to mock the disciples of the Flying Dragon Sect in Peace City now!”
After Duan Ling Tian and Ximen Long Xiang’s departure from the King Battlefield, the Flying Dragon Sect and the Tai Yi Sect were equally matched there. Hence, more people were paying attention to the situation on the Lord Battlefield. As for the Quasi Emperor Battlefield, no one had yet to perish there.
Under normal circumstances, the battles would be more intense on the King Battlefield and the Lord Battlefield. Deaths rarely occurred on the Quasi Emperor Battlefield since most of them were capable of escaping from their opponents.
The deaths of Fang Yi Ming and Wang Liu An were bad news to the Tai Yi Sect, but it was naturally good news to the Flying Dragon Sect.
“Woohoo! I wonder which our elder killed the two inner elders from the Tai Yi Sect!”
“The two inner elders from the Tai Yi Sect were killed consecutively. I don’t think any of our inner elders are capable of such a feat.”
“It must be the work of a White Dragon Elder!”
“I heard that those two from the Tai Yi Sect hated each other to the bones. The Tai Yi Sect disciples have been saying that those two were fighting and someone from our side took advantage of the situation and killed them.”
“Even if that’s the case, it doesn’t change the fact that the Tai Yi Sect had lost another two inner elders.”
Spirits were high in the Flying Dragon Sect and low in the Tai Yi Sect now that the advantage gained by the Tai Yi Sect had been lost.
A commotion broke out in Peace City when a purple figure appeared and made its way to the War Point Pavilion.
“It’s Duan Ling Tian!”
“Is he going to exchange his war points?”
“Hasn’t he been barred from entering the King Battlefield?”
“I heard that he entered the Lord Battlefield. He just became a rudimentary Lord of Gods recently, right? Don’t tell me he managed to obtain war points within two months of entering the Lord Battlefield?”
The group of disciples from the Tai Yi Sect looked at Duan Ling Tian suspiciously as he made his way to the War Point Pavilion.
Previously, Duan Ling Tian had obtained about 1,000 war points after killing 100 Kings of Gods on the King Battlefield.
‘I worked so hard to kill 100 Kings of Gods on the King Battlefield previously and only gained about 1,000 war points. This time, I only killed two inner elders of the Tai Yi Sect, but I gained 4,000 war points,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself, ignoring the group of people who were following him.
Duan Ling Tian decided to temporarily leave the Lord Battlefield after killing Fang Yi Ming. With 4,000 war points, he could exchange for some things that could help with his cultivation. He decided to cultivate over the next period of time before entering the Lord Battlefield again. When he was traveling back to the entrance to the Flying Dragon City, he had hoped to run into a few Lords of Gods from the Tai Yi Sect, but luck was not on his side. He only ran into two members of the Flying Dragon Sect.
Everyone looked at Duan Ling Tian skeptically as entered the War Point Pavilion.
“Did he really become a Lord of Gods?”
“Otherwise, how could he have entered the Lord Battlefield? Many people from the Flying Dragon Sect witnessed him entering the Lord Battlefield, after all.”
“Hmmm, none of our rudimentary Lord of Gods died recently…”
“Perhaps, he’s going to exchange the war points he obtained previously…”
When Duan Ling Tian walked into the hall, he discovered the counters were mostly empty unlike his previous visit.
An old man from one of the top emperor-rank forces in the Eastern Ridge Mansion sat behind the counter. He narrowed his eyes as he asked Duan Ling Tian, “Are you here to exchange the Tai Yi Sect’s Kings of Gods’ identity tokens for war points?”
“No,” Duan Ling Tian replied nonchalantly as he shook his head and brought two identity tokens from his spatial ring, “They belong to two inner elders of the Tai Yi Sect.”
The old man’s eyes widened upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words.
At the same time, silence descended in the hall. It was so quiet that one could hear a pin drop.
When the crowd regained their senses, they began to discuss among themselves.
“Did I hear wrongly? Did he say those two identity tokens belong to two inner elders from the Tai Yi Sect?”
“The Tai Yi Sect indeed lost two inner elders about two months ago…”
“Impossible! Those two elders, Elder Fang and Elder Wang, were intermediate Lords of Gods. How could Duan Ling Tian possibly kill them?”
Those from the Flying Dragon Sect were in shock whereas those from the Tai Yi Sect were not only in shock but disbelief as well.
At this time, the old man behind the counter sighed after he examined the two identity tokens. He said as he gave Duan Ling Tian his due war points, “They’re the identity tokens of Fang Yi Ming and Wang Liu An. They were intermediate Lords of Gods. I didn’t expect you to be the one to kill them. In any case, you gained 4,000 war points from this.”
“Thank you, elder,”
Everyone’s faces turned pale upon hearing the old man’s words.
Before Duan Ling Tian left, the old man said, “Duan Ling Tian, our clan is one of the top clans in the Eastern Ridge Mansion. If you join us, your treatment won’t be any different from that of our direct descendants.”
Following that, Duan Ling Tian received a few more Voice Transmissions from others from the top forces in the Eastern Ridge Mansion, persuading him to join them. It was as though they had forgotten Duan Ling Tian had refused them previously.
“Duan Ling Tian, don’t refuse so quickly. I know you’re waiting for the Imperial War to end before you make a decision. Please remember that our sect will always welcome you with open arms.”
“Duan Ling Tian, our sect is waiting for you to join us after the end of the Imperial War.”
While Duan Ling Tian politely declined the invitations, the crowd in the hall finally regained their senses, and a huge uproar erupted.
“Duan Ling Tian killed two inner elders from the Tai Yi Sect?!”
“Heavens! How did he do it?! He just became a rudimentary Lord of Gods recently, right?”
“Hey, let’s ask him!”
Some people followed Duan Ling Tian outof the War Point Pavilion while some sent news back to their sect immediately.
In just a moment, the Flying Dragon Sect and the Tai Yi Sect were in an uproar.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian began to exchange for the rare medicinal herbs he needed in Peace City.
At this time, a few people surrounded him and began to ask him questions.
“Duan Ling Tian, how did you manage to kill the two inner elders from the Tai Yi Sect? They were intermediate Lords of Gods, but you only became a rudimentary Lord of Gods recently.”
