"Possessor of the number 1 token, I'll tear you into pieces and replace you right away!" The young man with a savage appearance stuck out his tongue to lick his dry lips, and his ghastly eyes stared fixedly at Duan Ling Tian like a dormant venomous snake.
"That will depend on if you have the ability." Duan Ling Tian's expression remained unchanged as he spoke indifferently.
Duan Ling Tian has clearly seen how the young man with a savage appearance before him, the possessor of the number 25 token had dealt with the possessor of the number 26 command token earlier.
His opponent wanted to beg for mercy, yet he forcefully choked his opponents throat and didn't allow his opponent to let a shred of sound.
In the end, the possessor of the number 26 token was torn into pieces by him with his bare hands!
His spirit weapon was a grade four spirit weapon glove, and it was worn by him on his right hand.
"You'll know soon." The ghastly eyes of the young man flashed before his figure moved, and he seemed to have transformed into a venomous serpent that had moved to attack and fiercely bit at Duan Ling Tian.
His hand that wore the glove abruptly stretched out to grab at Duan Ling Tian's head, and it was covered with flickering flames that condensed into form and seemed to have transformed into a venomous serpent's open mouth.
In the sky, almost 70 ancient horned dragon silhouettes flashed out along with him towards Duan Ling Tian, and it revealed his shocking strength.
Second level of the Void Interpretation Stage!
First level Intermediate Wind Concept!
Grade four spirit weapon!
The young man could be said to have utilized all his ability and attacked with a killer move with the intention of killing Duan Ling Tian right off the bat.
"Want to kill me?" Duan Ling Tian's eyes were filled with killing intent as his figure moved out to unhurriedly welcome the young man's attack.
In the eyes of the spectators, it seemed as if Duan Ling Tian was giving his life away.
Right when some people thought Duan Ling Tian's actions were actions that courted death, a sword appeared out of thin air in Duan Ling Tian's hand, a grade three spirit sword.
Nine Dragon's Radiant Flash!
The sword in Duan Ling Tian's hand shook as his Origin Energy combined with second level Intermediate Wind Concept transformed into an azure gale that coiled around his sword and abruptly whistled out.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Two material divine dragons and one more that hadn't completely condensed into form whistled out, and they successfully drew the gazes of everyone as soon as they appeared.
Dragons were divine beasts of legend, and no one had seen one with their own two eyes.
Of course, there were a variety of dragon totems and embroidered paintings that were passed down since ancient times, just like the golden five clawed divine dragons that was embroidered on the dragon robes worn by the Emperors of the various Dynasties.
However, lifelike divine dragons that were condensed into form from Origin Energy were extremely rare.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
Right when the attention of most people was on the three divine dragons, an extreme flash abruptly shot out from each of the eyes of the two divine dragons that had completely condensed into form.
Four extreme flashes intercepted the young man with a speed so swift it was astounding.
The first extreme flash easily penetrated the hand of the young man that grabbed towards Duan Ling Tian like the mouth of a venomous serpent, and it penetrated through the grade four glove to leave behind a bloody hole.
Blood sprayed into the sky!
Pu! Pu! Pu!
Amongst the other three extreme flashes one of them penetrated between the brows of the young man, another penetrated the young man's throat, and the final flash penetrated the young man's heart.
Not to mention emitting a shrill cry, the young man didn't even have the chance to emit a muffled groan before he lost of signs of life and was completely sent flying by momentum.
Duan Ling Tian's figure moved to intercept the corpse that still charged towards him, and then he kicked out to kick the corpse flying and plunge onto the combat arena with a thump.
In the sky, the 81 ancient horned dragon silhouettes condensed into form from the energy of the heavens and the earth gradually dispersed along with Duan Ling Tian putting away his sword.
"Second level Void Interpretation Stage!"
"Second level Intermediate Wind Concept!"
"Even though the martial skill executed by this Duan Ling Tian isn't bad, yet his strength seems to not have the qualification to possess the number 1 token, right?"
After they witnessed Duan Ling Tian's strength, many people couldn't refrain from voicing out with question, and they questioned Duan Ling Tian's qualification to possess the number 1 token.
Even more people firmly believed that Duan Ling Tian had obtained the number 1 token by irregular means.
Actually, Duan Ling Tian could indeed be considered to have used irregular means. Relying on the lifetime worth of memories in Inscription of the Rebirth Martial Emperor and his own Spiritual Force to temporarily deactivate the Inscription Formations in the Illusory Crypts, wasn't this irregular means?
Of course, not just anyone was capable of this.
"I was wondering how strong Duan Ling Tian would be, yet he's only so!" The possessor of the number 4 token, Qin Kong, grunted coldly as he glanced at Duan Ling Tian with disdain.
"Since he was able to obtain the number 1 token and be the first to traverse the Illusory Crypt, there's naturally something extraordinary about him… Looks like he hasn't revealed some trump cards." The possessor of the number 3 token, Qi Feng, muttered to himself.
After Duan Ling Tian, the possessor of the number 2 token, Zi Shang, entered the arena.
The person Zi Shang challenged was the possessor of the number 24 token, and even though his opponent's strength was strong, it was still inferior to him, causing his opponent to be killed instantly by the blade of wind that flashed out from his zither.
The challenges continued.
The possessors of the top 10 tokens obtained successive victories all along the way.
In next to no time, it was once again the turn of the possessor of the number 7 token, Feng Tian Wu. If it was according to the order the previous six people challenged their opponents with, then she ought to challenge the possessor of the number 19 token.
However, the possessor of the number 19 token was Long Yun, and out of respect for Saber 5, Feng Tian Wu didn't challenge him and chose the possessor of the number 18 token instead.
The possessor of the number 18 token had a cultivation at the second level of the Void Interpretation Stage and had comprehended second level Void Interpretation Concept, and he could be said to be an opponent with formidable strength.
Right when everyone thought Feng Tian Wu would be in a deadlock with her opponent, her opponent was defeated overbearingly by Feng Tian Wu in a single move.
This time, Feng Tian Wu had utilized a spirit weapon, a grade three spirit whip, and just a single whip had heavily injured her opponent.
The phenomenon of the heavens and the earth hadn't even condensed into form when it dispersed, and Feng Tian Wu's exact strength was still a mystery in the eyes of most people except Duan Ling Tian.
"She's merely 25 years old, yet possesses a cultivation like this, it's truly shocking!"
"If she's able to continue maintaining a pace like this… Then it's without suspense that she'll step into the Void Transformation Stage in another 10 years!"
Many people were shocked by Feng Tian Wu's strength, and they couldn't help but sigh with emotion.
Feng Tian Wu caused them to have a completely new understanding of female martial artists.
"Feng Tian Wu!" The possessor of the number 9 token, the other female that had obtained one of the top 10 tokens, the Darqing Dynasty's Ye Ling looked at Feng Tian Wu with a complicated expression.
She hadn't even stepped into the Void Initiation Stage when she was Feng Tian Wu's age.
Even though she was unwilling to admit it, she knew that Feng Tian Wu's natural talent and comprehension ability was indeed stronger than her.
"But I have complete confidence in defeating her if I go against her now!" Ye Ling was filled with confidence.
"Tian Wu, you ought to have properly taught that kid a lesson for me." After Feng Tian Wu returned, Saber 5 spoke out and seemed to be feeling extremely regretful that Feng Tian Wu didn't choose to challenge Long Yun.
After Feng Tian Wu, it was the possessor of the number 8 token, the Darchu Dynasty's Ou Chen.
The person Ou Chen chose to challenge was precisely the possessor of the number 19 token, Long Yun.
Long Yun was the disciple of the Vice Master of the House of Sabers, and he'd already touched the threshold of 'Saber Unity,' but because of the gap in their cultivation and Concept, he still lost to Ou Chen.
Because of being afraid of Saber 5 who stood behind Long Yun, Ou Chen didn't attack ruthlessly.
After Long Yun returned, he stood at the side of Saber 5 with a dejected expression. "Master, I'm sorry. I've let you down and didn't even enter the top 10."
"Hmph!" Saber 5 grunted coldly. "Once we return to the sect this time, I'll use the method of the House of Sabers to properly temper you."
As he finished speaking, a wisp of an evil smile appeared on the corners of Saber 5's mouth, and it caused Long Yun to be unable to help but shudder.
After Ou Chen, it was the possessor of the number 9 token, Ye Ling, that entered the arena, and Ye Ling challenged the possessor of the number 17 token and obtained victory.
Subsequently, the possessor of the number 10 token, Li Ji, challenged the possessor of the number 16 token and obtained victory.
The possessor of the number 11 token, the young man that was dressed as a scholar challenged the possessor of the number 15 token, Zhang Shou Yong.
"Big Brother Zhang has encountered a strong opponent!" Duan Ling Tian's eyes flashed as he muttered.
Just like Duan Ling Tian had said, Zhang Shou Yong and the possessor of the number 11 token were matched in strength for some time in their battle, and it was because of the grade three wine gourd Duan Ling Tian had personally refined for Zhang Shou Yong.
The young man that was dressed as a scholar possessed shocking strength.
In the end, Zhang Shou Yong barely defeated his opponent and replaced his opponent to obtain the number 11 token.
"Big Brother Zhang, nice!" Duan Ling Tian's eyes lit up and he started smiling.
In next to no time, it was Su Li's turn as the possessor of the number 12 token, and he challenged the possessor of the number 14 token. Su Li struck a total of three times and easily obtained victory.
The possessor of the number 13 token obtained a bye.
"What's next?" Meanwhile, there were only 13 people remaining in the third round of the selections, and many people couldn't help but raise their heads to look at the two Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort.
"Now, we're about to carry out the final segment of the third round… This segment will be one where the possessors of the number 11, 12, and 13 tokens will issue a challenge successively to challenge the possessors of the top 10 tokens.
"Once one obtains victory, the person will be able to replace his opponent and obtain his opponents number token to enter into the top 10 of the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties held by our Skywolf Fort!" Ning Can spoke clearly.
Instantly, the gazes of Zhang Shou Yong, Su Li, and the other possessor of the number 13 token lit up.
Firstly, it was the turn for the possessor of the number 11 token, Zhang Shou Yong, to issue a challenge.
He only had a single chance, and if he didn't succeed, then he would lose all fate with the top 10 of the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties.
Zhang Shou Yong's gaze flashed past Duan Ling Tian and the others, and in the end, he chose the possessor of the number 7 token, Feng Tian Wu.
Amongst the possessors of the top 10 tokens, even the possessor of the number 10 token, Li Ji, was an existence at the third level of the Void Interpretation Stage.
Only Duan Ling Tian, Zi Shang, and Feng Tian Wu were existences at the second level of the Void Interpretation Stage.
Zhang Shou Yong knew he wasn't a match for Duan Ling Tian and Zi Shang, so he chose Feng Tian Wu.
"Big Brother Zhang has bit off more than he can chew this time." Duan Ling Tian, who knew Feng Tian Wu's true strength, couldn't help but snicker.
