Chapter 3354: The Fifth-Form Chaos Divine Flame
Celestial Talismans such as communication talismans could not be used in the Purgatory Battlefield. However, Celestial Weapons and artifacts were permitted.
At this moment, the four young men who surrounded Duan Ling Tian and the others brought their Celestial Weapons out; two of them used swords, one used a saber, and the other one wielded a spear.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
The four young men seized the opportunity to strike first to gain the upper hand. In the Purgatory Battlefield, surviving was the most important. Everything else was not important in comparison to keeping oneself alive. Therefore, one would either agree to get along or kill.
When the four young men struck, their attacks merged in a strange manner. The combined force of their attacks that was on par with that of a Celestial Emperor startled Duan Ling Tian slightly. Naturally, this level of attack was no cause for concern for him.
“It seems like it’s your bad luck for running into me…” Duan Ling Tian glanced at them indifferently before he brought out his Seven Orifices Exquisite Sword. Apart from that, he used the space energy from the law of space and the powers from the Five Divine Elements as well. However, he did not borrow much of the Five Divine Elements’ powers although it would not affect the number of times he would be able to use their powers. Just a little of their powers, after they stayed in his Little World that contained the Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy from the remnant of a Realm of Gods, were enough to deal with the four young men after all.
Duan Ling Tian simply slashed the sword horizontally without any flowery movements, launching a seven-color sword ray that swept toward four young men’s combined attack.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The frightening sword ray swept out like a tsunami, easily destroying the four men’s combined attack like a predator devouring its prey.
“The law of space a-and… and the Five Divine Elements?!”
“It’s the Five Divine Elements!”
“H-he has all Five Divine Elements?!”
The four young men were frightened out of their wits when they discovered not only did Duan Ling Tian possess the Divine Elements, but he possessed all Five Divine Elements. Alas, before they could even react, the seven-color sword ray landed on them, killing them instantly.
After everything was done and dusted, Little Gold asked with a smile, “Big Brother Ling Tian, with these four young men, you should have quite a lot of military merit points now, right? They were quite strong, after all.”
Upon hearing these words, Duan Ling Tian checked his points. “My current points allow me to enter the top 100,000. I’ll be able to enter the top 10,000 soon. As for their strength, their combined strength is comparable to that of an ordinary Celestial Emperor.”
“Huh? So little points? Oh, well, at least they helped you to enter the top 100,000.” Little Gold looked somewhat disappointed upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words. After a beat, she added, “In fact, their combined strength isn’t too bad. It’s just a pity that they ran into you.”
“I guess they just entered the Purgatory Battlefield not too long ago.” Duan Ling Tian smiled faintly. Then, he said to Little Gold, “Alright, we should explore this place and take advantage of the terrain here and find a place to hide. It’d be good if we can find a place that’s suitable to launch sneak attacks.”
As for Huan’er, Duan Ling Tian did not really need to explain much to her since she would follow him wherever he went.
The Purgatory of Myriad Changes’ terrain would change from time to time. Moreover, not everyone in the Purgatory of Myriad Changes would be submitted to the same change.
For example, earlier, the terrain under Duan Ling Tian, Huan’er, and Little Gold’s feet had shifted, bringing them close to the four young men. However, on the young men’s side, their terrain did not change at all. It was simply Duan Ling Tian and the others walking close to their hiding place. It was as though the terrain in the Purgatory of Myriad Changes had delivered the trio to the young man.
At this moment, the trio finally found a place to hide. Duan Ling Tian decided to find a place to hide since he thought it would be more advantageous. After all, he stayed put, the changing terrain would definitely send someone to them sooner or later.
Not long after the trio hid behind a peak of a mountain, Little Gold, who had especially good eyesight, looked to the left. “There!”
“There’s another person on the other side as well.” Just as Little Gold discovered people on the left side, Duan Ling Tian discovered one person on the right side.
As soon as both sides met, they immediately confronted each other.
“One versus two?” Little Gold’s eyes were bright as she watched the people. “He must be quite strong since he’s bold enough to come alone to this place. However, is he strong enough to fight two people at once?”
“We’ll find out in a moment,” Duan Ling Tian said with an indifferent smile on his face.
As soon as his voice fell, the Chaos Divine Flame’s voice rang in his ears. “How lucky! He has the fifth-form Chaos Divine Flame!”
Duan Ling Tian instinctively turned to look at the middle-aged man who was fighting two people at once.
The middle-aged man was dressed in a green long robe, and his appearance was ordinary. He wielded an enormous saber when he fought, and based on the techniques he used, it was clear he had comprehended the law of fire.
On the other hand, the green-clad middle-aged man’s two opponents were rather strong as well. Their strength was almost that of a Celestial Emperor; this meant their strength was at the peak of the Celestial Lord stage.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
The green-clad middle-aged man attacked with his flaming saber, sending out balls of flame. At this time, he had yet to use the power of the Chaos Divine Flame in his body.
“Why hasn’t his fifth-form Chaos Divine Flame discover your presence?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously. He knew that Divine Elements could sense each other, and the World Cleansing Divine Water had spoken to him about this before as well.
From the moment the green-clad middle-aged man arrived, he did not glance in Duan Ling Tian’s direction at all. It was clear his fifth-form Chaos Divine Flame had not detected the presence of Duan Ling Tian’s Five Divine Elements.
“Since the moment you stepped foot onto the Purgatory Battlefield, all of us have been concealing our auras. If you don’t make a move, Divine Elements with lower forms than us won’t be able to detect our presence…” the World Cleansing Divine Water explained, “However, if that Chaos Divine Flame has the same form as the Chaos Divine Flame in your body, it would be able to detect the Chaos Divine Flame in your body, but it would not be able to detect the four us. This applies to all similar elements. A World Cleansing Divine Water that has the same form as I do would be able to detect but not the others. A Divine Element has to be in the seventh form at least to discover all of us…”
Duan Ling Tian nodded after listening to the World Cleansing Divine Water’s explanation.
“Those two aren’t his opponents at all. The power he gets from his fifth-form Chaos Divine Flame isn’t little…” the Chaos Divine Flame said.
As though proving the Chaos Divine Flame’s words right, the green-clad middle-aged man who seemed to be losing suddenly erupted with strength from his fifth-form Chaos Divine Flame when his two opponents let down their guards.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
In just a moment, the two were killed by the green-clad middle-aged man. Needless to say, apart from their Spatial Rings, their military merit points had also gone to him.
“Let’s make a move now!” Duan Ling Tian said to Little Gold at this moment. He was not going to let go of the opportunity to gain more military merit points. Most importantly, he was not going to let go of the chance to let his Chaos Divine Flame devour the middle-aged man’s fifth-form Chaos Divine Flame.
At this point, the middle-aged man also discovered the trio’s presence.
“Oh? Another three people are delivering themselves to me?” The green-clad middle-aged man’s eyes flashed with killing intent. The flames surging around his body from his previous fight had yet to dissipate as he flew toward the trio.
The green-clad middle-aged man was a Ten Directions Celestial Lord who had comprehended all the profundities from the law of fire to the mastery stage. Coupled with the fifth-form Chaos Divine Flame in his body, his strength far exceeded those of the four young men whom Duan Ling Tian killed earlier.
Nevertheless, Duan Ling Tian did not even need the Chaos Divine Flame’s help to deal with the green-clad middle-aged man. He smiled, revealing his pearly white teeth, as he said, “Thank you.”
The green-clad middle-aged man was momentarily confused when he saw the smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face. ‘Thank you? For what?’ After he recovered his senses, he said disdainfully, “Thank you? Brat, don’t tell me you think you can obtain my military merit points because you have two additional people on your side…”
Duan Ling Tian, who was standing in front of the middle-aged man, held the thrumming Seven Orifices Exquisite Sword in his hand as he said with a grin on his face, “No, you misunderstand. I’m not only taking you for delivering your points to me, but I’m also thanking you for delivering your Chaos Divine Flame to me…”
“You discovered the Chaos Divine Flame in my body?” The green-clad middle-aged man’s gaze turned frosty when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. However, his expression changed drastically when he heard his Chaos Divine Flame’s voice.
“Run now! He has a sixth-form Chaos Divine Flame! If you fight him, I won’t be able to help you at all!”
The green-clad middle-aged man was still in a daze as the fifth-form Chaos Divine Flame said in a panic-laden voice, “No, it’s too late to run! Hurry up and kill him! Do it before his Chaos Divine Flame has a chance to devour me! Hurry! He might not be stronger than you.”
To save itself, the fifth-form Chaos Divine Flame intended for the green-clad middle-aged man to kill Duan Ling Tian. After all, he managed to kill Duan Ling Tian, the Chaos Divine Flame in Duan Ling Tian’s body would be without a host. Even a sixth-form Chaos Divine Flame would find it hard to devour a first-form Chaos Divine Flame without a host. This was because the strength the host provided to a Divine Element was essential in devouring another Divine Element.
“Sixth-form Chaos Divine Flame?” The green-clad middle-aged man finally regained his senses; his expression was grim. He did not waste time and struck with all his might like his life depended on it, which was indeed the case. If his Chaos Divine Flame was devoured, only death awaited him. Moreover, there was a chance that he would also die even if he managed to kill his opponent. After all, his opponent’s Chaos Divine Flame definitely would refuse to stay in his body. If it entered another person’s body, would he not be killed as well?
In just an instant, flaming energy sabers seemed to weave a net in the sky, closing in on Duan Ling Tian. Moreover, even if he killed the counterpart after the devouring is complete, he might not be able to avoid death.
