Chapter 921 - Summoning the Tribulation
Inside the crystal case was a long icy stick without any sign of energy or Weapon Spirit. Despite that, as Qin Nan took a closer look, its appearance was somehow imperious.
An ancient scroll was placed beside the stick.
The title of the stick was "Beast-Hitting Stick".
Below it was a paragraph:
Any beast below the Martial Monarch Realm will not be able to resist the attacks of the Beast-Hitting Stick.
The short sentence served as a shocking explosion.
Unable to resist?
Didn't that make the bearer of the stick undefeatable against beasts below the Martial Monarch Realm?
Qin Nan suddenly recalled that the Six-Spirited Dragon Vein had mentioned how the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch was highly respected a few thousand years ago, but he had been kicked out from the Dragon Emperor Clan in the end, which also brought great trouble to the Human Peak.
It was said that the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch was refining a mystical weapon specifically used to deal with beasts!
Had he actually succeeded?
"Maniac, that guy is no doubt a maniac. How much hatred does he have toward the Dragon Emperor Clan to actually refine such a crazy mystical weapon…" Qin Nan took a deep breath as he collected his thoughts. However, his eyes had a passionate look.
He surely liked this Beast-Hitting Stick!
…Meanwhile, in the Fire Path Mountain Range…
A shocking glow descended upon the place, shattering several figures into pieces.
"Damn it!" City Lord Zhou could not help but curse as his expression darkened, "We've been tricked! Who would have thought they possessed such capabilities!"
In addition to him, the initial excitement on the faces of Cui Lixu and the others was replaced with anger.
They had spent great effort trying to track their targets down, but it turned out that they were following straw figure clones instead!
"City Lord Zhou!" Cui Lixu clenched his teeth and said, "Qin Nan and his crew are quite troublesome to deal with. I'm afraid we're only wasting our time here. I will excuse myself!"
City Lord Zhou was hesitant hearing this.
Without Cui Lixu's assistance, it would be more difficult for them to track their enemies down.
"Don't worry." Cui Lixu said in a calm tone, "What Qin Nan has done is unforgivable. I won't believe he will hide in this mountain range for the rest of his life. When the time comes, I'll make him pay!"
The last four words were uttered with a shocking murderous intent.
Despite his hatred toward Qin Nan, it was a waste of time for him to continue looking for Qin Nan. He would rather use the time to cultivate.
"Alright." City Lord Zhou nodded as his gaze became colder, "But I'll never give up, not until I find him…"
Cui Lixu nodded and left the place.
City Lord Zhou stood in the same spot for quite a while, before he waved his hand and dismissed his crew.
The Magical Thunder City was still in operation, thus it was unwise to have all of his people out hunting a single person.
"Ten days! If I can't find him within ten days, I'll leave it until next time!"
City Lord Zhou scanned his surroundings and dashed forward.
…Meanwhile, in the cave inside the gap…
"I shall keep the Beast-Hitting Stick for now." Qin Nan calmed his thoughts and stored the Beast-Hitting Stick, before looking into the distance.
Sima Kong, the two hounds, and one mouse were enjoying rummaging in the hall, and were overjoyed whenever they discovered some treasure during the process.
"Sima Kong, how many Monarch Crystals do you have, I'll need them all!"
Qin Nan transmitted his thought.
"Damn, Qin Nan, I don't have much on me either. Take these thirty thousand Monarch Crystals…" Sima Kong said with a heartache and threw a storage bag to Qin Nan.
Qin Nan said smilingly before leaving the dojo. He proceeded to another concealed cave inside the burning valley.
It was not that he did not trust Sima Kong, but he preferred not to let anyone know the secrets of his Divine Battle Spirit.
Qin Nan reached out his hand and shoved a handful of Monarch Crystals into his mouth.
After devouring fifty thousand Monarch Crystals, his Divine Battle Spirit still remained calm. The only difference was twenty extra streams of Vital Qi in his body.
"Even though it did not rank up, I can sense that the fourth-grade Tian rank isn't too far away now."
Qin Nan's gaze sharpened.
Once it ranked up to a fourth-grade Tian ranked Martial Spirit, apart from the top thirty geniuses on the Monarch Ranking, the strength of the rest would be greatly limited against him.
"I shall worry about my Martial Spirit later. It's time to trigger the Tribulation!"
Qin Nan shook his head and returned to the dojo.
If he triggered the Tribulation in the valley, the huge impact would easily attract the attention of City Lord Zhou and his crew.
"I shall absorb it first."
Qin Nan took out the rare artifact of the Magical Thunder City and activated the golden seal with his Divine Sense.
Buzz buzz buzz…
The golden seal seemed to be unwilling, which shuddered violently before revealing itself. It unleashed a unique force that absorbed the force of the Heavens and Earth from the artifact.
The golden seal suddenly vibrated, unleashing a powerful gust that swept Qin Nan's figure, causing his hair to dance wildly.
"It appears that the golden seal is not willing to absorb the force of the Heavens and Earth from artifacts."
Qin Nan was left speechless.
It looked like he could only absorb the force of the Heavens and Earth from Tribulations next time.
"Full focus, one with the mind!"
Qin Nan murmured as he took a few deep breaths to fully prepare himself.
"Unleash the Tribulation!"
Qin Nan shouted, causing the golden seal to shudder and thoroughly unleash the force of the Heavens and Earth it had collected, which gathered above the dojo.
Darkness began to crawl into the surroundings as flickers of thunder rolled inside the clouds.
"Holy crap, Qin Nan, what are you planning to do, triggering the Tribulation at a place like this!" Sima Kong's expression became pale.
Was Qin Nan planning to destroy the entire cave?
Hang on a sec…
Sima Kong was stunned as he recalled something.
Qin Nan had achieved the second-layer Martial Progenitor Realm, and his strength was equivalent to the sixth-layer Martial Progenitor Realm, but he had yet to overcome the Tribulation?
A loud explosion took place.
The stormy clouds merged into a thunderous sword with a mighty strength.
In comparison to its aura, Qin Nan's presence felt miniscule before it.
"What a pity, the force of the Heavens and Earth is still not enough, only managing to form a thunderous sword…" Surprisingly, Qin Nan shook his head in disappointment.
The stronger the Tribulation, the better the benefits he would receive after overcoming it.
Normally, the Tribulation would be infuriated, but since the force collected by the golden seal had lost its connection with the Heavens and Earth, it behaved differently.
"So be it! Martial Trees, unleash!"
Qin Nan's blood began to boil following a groan.
His aura changed significantly too.
A moment ago, the sword had still been kept in its sheath.
Now, it was drawn out, revealing its true strength!
Following a series of explosions, Sima Kong witnessed a sight that he would never forget for his entire life.
Six two-zhang tall Martial Trees emerged into the sky, whose Monarch Art intents filled the entire cave such that even the terrifying Tribulation was insignificant compared to them!
