Chapter 922 - Nine Martial Trees
"The rules of cultivation…This guy has broken the rules of cultivation!"
Sima Kong took a deep breath as he gathered his thoughts.
As the successor of the Emperor of Thieves, he clearly knew the significance of breaking the rules of cultivation.
For some reason, he recalled his encounter with an old white-haired man in the Eastern Continent, who had said something strange to him. He had not taken note of it before, but now, it seemed like the old man knew something important.
A shocking explosion took place on the dojo. The thunderous sword seemed to have realized something, causing it to unleash a shocking sword intent and slash forward in a ferocious manner.
Qin Nan uttered a roar as the six Martial Trees behind him sprang into the sky, colliding with the thunderous sword.
He did not use any ability or ultimate move, just simple brute force!
BANG BANG BANG…
A series of explosions took place.
The combined strength of the six Martial Trees was comparable to the Tribulation.
Meanwhile, the grey Martial Tree united the five Divine Battle Martial Trees like a general uttering his commands, allowing them to unleash their greatest potential.
Qin Nan's right arm exploded, illuminating the surroundings with a shocking flicker.
A strong battle intent burst out from Qin Nan's body.
He stomped his foot and sprang into the sky, holding the saber with his left hand and slashing at the Tribulation.
BANG! BANG! BANG!
The Tribulation was knocked backward after being overwhelmed by the impact.
Qin Nan's gaze sharpened all of a sudden.
This is it!
"First form of the Divine God of Battle, Unrivalled Warrior!"
Qin Nan's aura skyrocketed like a surging tide.
His left eye emitted a piercing purple glow, as if he were peeking through the thunderous sword.
Qin Nan snapped as he executed a slash with the Heaven-Shattering Saber while the six Martial Trees crushed downward.
Following a shocking explosion, the thunderous sword was shattered into countless blue light dots.
These blue light dots only existed when a Tribulation was overcome, which contained pure energy within them.
Meanwhile, Qin Nan's figure shuddered as an obscure aura rose within his body.
"Is this…the force of the Divine God of Battle?"
Qin Nan lowered his head as his eyes were filled with joy.
His body now had three extra streams of the force of the Divine God of Battle!
Apart from that, the six Martial Trees began to shiver as some force from nowhere rushed into them to improve their power.
"Stop! Obey my command and refine new Martial Trees!"
Qin Nan uttered a roar and demanded with his thoughts.
He gathered the force given to him after overcoming the Tribulation and directed them to the three streams of the force of the Divine God of Battle.
Meanwhile, he inserted the will of Monarch Arts into the force of the Divine God of Battle as well.
The force of the Divine God of Battle transformed into Martial Seeds that immediately sprouted at a terrifying pace. The shoots grew rapidly and reached two zhang in just a brief moment.
The force that he had acquired from overcoming the Tribulation dissipated.
"Nine Martial Trees!"
Even Qin Nan could not help but feel excited seeing this.
No one in the past had ever achieved this!
Not only had he surpassed the rules of cultivation, he had also broken his own limits!
He was even more convinced that he had chosen the right path!
Shrieks of agony could be heard coming from the sky above the dojo, as several dark ancient figures began to appear with a shocking evil presence.
It appeared that the Heavens and Earth were aware of what he was doing!
It had sent evil spirits to erase his existence!
"Now that I've refined nine Martial Trees, do you really think a few evil spirits could possibly eliminate me?"
Qin Nan uttered a roar like an imperious emperor.
The nine Martial Trees flew into the sky colliding with the evil spirits.
The evil spirits were shattered into pieces from the impact, which left a giant hole in the void.
Nine Martial Trees was considered the ultimate limit, impenetrable by any force!
Qin Nan's eyes glistened.
The eight Divine Battle Martial Trees became restless, unleashing their battle intents.
"The Divine Battle Martial Trees are different from this particular Martial Tree, thus they would compete with it naturally. However, this Martial Tree is my own Martial Tree, thus I should make it stronger so it will lead the Divine Battle Martial Trees…"
Qin Nan quickly thought, causing his eyes to flicker.
It was the same as possessing the Divine Battle Spirit.
"Force of the Tribulation, gather at once and strengthen the Martial Tree!"
Qin Nan waved his hand, unleashing a force that absorbed the thunderous light dots scattered in the sky into the Martial Tree.
Buzz buzz buzz…
The Martial Tree vibrated vigorously as the thunderous light dots descended upon it, causing its aura to rise.
The restless Divine Battle Martial Trees fell silent immediately.
"Merge with my will."
Qin Nan sat on the ground as he came up with a new idea. He closed his eyes and shared his understanding of the path of cultivation since his time in the lower district with the Martial Tree.
The dojo fell into a dead silence.
In the hall a distance away, Sima Kong still had a blank expression on his face.
The two hounds realized something seeing his reaction. They went up to him and patted his foot with their paws.
Sima Kong woke up.
Sima Kong smilingly said, "Thanks, otherwise, it'd take me some time to free myself from those thoughts."
The two hounds rolled their eyes. How insincere, shouldn't he give them some treasure to show his gratitude?
Sima Kong turned around and glanced in Qin Nan's direction while taking a deep breath.
He had learned a great deal from observing Qin Nan overcome his Tribulation.
Since he had acquired the succession of the Emperor of Thieves, he had traveled to different places, stealing many rare artifacts.
He initially thought that that would be his life until his death.
Until one day, the old white-haired man in the Eastern Continent had said to him, "Young man, the path is in front of you."
The path was in front?
Wasn't the path right under his feet?
Sima Kong did not overthink it, but he finally realized that the rumors about breaking the rules of cultivation actually existed!
Apart from the legend eight thousand years ago, someone had done it today!
And the person was his brother.
"My path is right in front of me!
"I initially thought that I would be satisfied living a free life robbing the entire world.
"Senior Emperor of Thieves, you once mentioned that the Martial Monarch Realm was your limit. Robbing the Canglan Continent was the limit! But I will achieve the martial God Realm! Robbing the Heavens and Earth…And continue robbing…the Nine Heavens!"
Sima Kong's eyes burned passionately.
The young man of this generation would be bold and hot-hearted!
He could do it too!
