Chapter 3353: Purgatory of Myriad Changes
This time, Duan Ling Tian did not use his own name. Instead, he used Xia Fei Wu as a pseudonym. The pseudonym was a portmanteau of the names of his three loved ones, Ke’er, Li Fei, and Feng Tian Wu. Xia was the Ke’er’s family name in the Divine Offering Land, and the words ‘Fei’ and ‘Wu’ came from Li Fei and Feng Tian Wu’s names respectively.
As for Huan’er, she used the name Du Tian Ling. Instead of using her father’s surname, Lian, she decided to use her mother’s surname, Du. Then, she switched Duan Ling Tian’s around and came up with Tian Ling.
Finally, Little Gold switched her name to Jin Yue. Jin was taken from her name, and the word Yue was related to the Blood Moon Ridge in the Ten Thousand Beasts Heaven. She was a member of the Blood Moon Ridge after all.
Xia Fei Wu.
Du Tian Ling.
Now that their names had been replaced with new ones, the trio entered the Purgatory Battlefield again. Perhaps, apart from supreme powerhouses, no one would be able to connect the trio to their real names.
“We should alter our physical appearances as well,” Duan Ling Tian said to Huan’er and Little Gold.
Duan Ling Tian changed his appearance to that of a handsome teenager who looked about 17 years old. Even then, he could not hide his extraordinary bearings. He looked like a young scholar, completely different from his original appearance.
Huan’er changed herself into a 16-year-old girl. Although she was still beautiful, it was nothing compared to her original appearance.
Finally, Little Gold looked like a little girl who was not even ten years old with two cute braids. She giggled and said, “If Little Black and Little White came here, they definitely won’t be able to recognize us…”
“That’s only natural. After all, we’ve changed our appearances,” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and said with a smile, “To further guard our identities, try to communicate through Voice Transmissions as much as possible. Unless we can kill all those who suspect us, we still risk being exposed.”
“Alright, we will communicate through Voice Transmission from now on,” Little Gold responded enthusiastically.
Needless to say, Huan’er had no objections as well.
“Little Gold, the points of the people we kill will go to us, right?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“That’s right,” Little Gold responded, “The points will only go to the person who deals the killing blow. Therefore, if you want to help someone gain points, you can only injure the opponent and let the person you want to help deal the killing blow.”
In just a blink of an eye, Duan Ling Tian, Huan’er, and Little Gold had already been in the Purgatory Battlefield for a month now. However, during this time, the opponents they encountered all possessed very few points. Even after killing all of them, Duan Ling Tian did not even make it into the top 100,000.
“Little Gold, let’s go to the Purgatory of Myriad Changes,” Duan Ling Tian said to Little Gold.
The Purgatory of Myriad Changes was in the heart of the Purgatory Battlefield where free secret zones that one could enter without using military merit points mostly appeared. For this reason, almost half of the number of people who entered the Purgatory Battlefield would go to the Purgatory of Myriad Changes. As a result, there were always battles there, and it was also a place where many died. Naturally, this place was also where one could quickly earn points.
Whenever a free secret zone appeared, it would remain open until the number of people in the zone reached the limit. Once one entered the secret zone, one was free to roam the entire place and search for treasures and fortuitous encounters. It was not surprising that there were many people lurking around, hoping to gain points by preying on those who were waiting for the appearance of a free secret zone. Depending on one’s luck, the Purgatory of Myriad Changes could be heaven or hell.
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words, Little Gold voiced her concerns, “Brother Ling Tian, shouldn’t we lay low? Although the Purgatory of Myriad Changes is vast, there are many people there as well. What if we’re unlucky and encounter someone with a seventh-form or eighth-form Divine Element? What are you going to do at that time?”
It would not be too risky if Duan Ling Tian did not possess the Five Divine Elements. Possessing a Divine Element was like painting a huge target on one’s back for those who also possessed Divine Elements to see, let alone Duan Ling Tian who possessed all of the Five Divine Elements.
Usually, one would only attack someone who possessed the same Divine Element since one could only evolve one’s Divine Element by devouring the same Divine Element. Moreover, since the Five Divine Elements were all prideful, it would be somewhat difficult to try to attack another person with a different Divine Element to gain their Divine Elements since Divine Elements were usually too prideful to share the same host. Based on this, one could see how rare Duan Ling Tian’s situation was. He was lucky that he encountered the Divine Elements when they were in their lower forms since it was easier for him to persuade them. Although the World Cleansing Divine Water had quite a high form when Duan Ling Tian first encountered it, it was easily persuaded to join Duan Ling Tian because Duan Ling Tian had obtained the Divine Tree of Life in the remnant of a Realm of Gods. At that time, the World Cleansing Divine Water was also desperate to leave the remnant of the Realm of Gods. For these reasons, it put its pride aside and decided to share a host with the other Divine Elements.
However, for Duan Ling Tian who possessed all Five Divine Elements, it meant that he was a target for everyone who had a Divine Element regardless of which one it was.
“There might not be anyone with an eighth-form Divine Element in the Purgatory Battlefield,” Duan Ling Tian said reassuringly, “Even if there is, I might still be able to kill him or her before the eighth-form Divine Element can make a move on the Five Divine Elements in my body. Without a host, it won’t be able to devour my Five Divine Elements even if it survives.” His eyes flashed brightly at the end of his words.
Duan Ling Tian had spoken to the World Cleansing Divine Water at length about this matter. Naturally, things were not as simple as Duan Ling Tian described to Little Gold. He had downplayed the situation so as not to worry Little Gold and Huan’er. Despite being silent, he could tell Huan’er was worried about him as well judging by how tight her grip around his arm was.
“Different situations call for different actions… I, Duan Ling Tian, have been through highs and lows. Those who want me dead must be prepared to die!” Duan Ling Tian said as his eyes shone with determination.
With just a thought, the trio was guided by a force to the Purgatory of Myriad Changes.
A few days passed before they drew close to their destination. The force grew stronger and stronger as well as they drew closer. At this point, the trio was silent; all of them were on guard.
During the past few days, they have killed more than ten people. This number surpassed the number of people they killed a month ago.
Soon enough, the gloomy wasteland in their surroundings gradually changed. The ground and the mountains seemed to be drenched in blood. Blood was everywhere as far as the eyes could see.
“This must be the Purgatory of Myriad Changes.”
At this moment, Little Gold suddenly looked at the corner of a towering mountain that was behind a medium-height mountain. As a rodent Celestial Beast, her senses were very sharp; they were considered extraordinary even among Celestial Beasts and Divine Beasts. “Brother Ling Tian, there are people over there…”
As soon as Duan Ling Tian and Huan’er looked in the direction of Little Gold’s gaze, voices suddenly rang from the mountain peak.
“They discovered us?”
“Brother Xian, that little girl doesn’t seem to be human…”
“Even if she’s a Celestial Beast, it should be impossible for her to discover us. She must be one of those Celestial Beasts with extraordinarily keen senses…”
Four young men who looked identical, save for a few differences, suddenly walked out. Since this was the Purgatory Battlefield and they can easily change their appearances, these young men might not necessarily be quadruplets.
“Consider yourself unlucky for running into us,” one of the four young men said with a smile as he suddenly shot into the sky.
Following that, the other young men flew in different directions, surrounding Duan Ling Tian and the two women.
The four young men were positioned in a unique formation when they surrounded the trio.
Upon seeing this, Duan Ling Tian cocked an eyebrow. “A Joint Strike Formation? We can’t be sure yet who’s unlucky for running into whom…”
Meanwhile, Little Gold heaved a sigh of relief inwardly when she received a Voice Transmission from Duan Ling Tian, telling her that none of the four young men possessed the Five Divine Elements. When she shifted her gaze back to the young men again, her corners of lips lifted up into a smirk.
