War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens - Chapter 2967 - Gathering Storm
Chapter 2967: Gathering Storm
After hearing the Chaos Divine Flame’s words, Duan Ling Tian finally understood why the Celestial Methods and Divine Abilities at and above the King Grade were different from other Celestial Methods and Divine Abilities. He also learned that Divine Abilities at and above the King Grade contained the Internal Assistive Law Profundity. The assistive Divine Ability he had mastered, the Elementary Devouring Tactic, was also a kind of internal assistive approach.
‘Back then, Elder Huo, the pagoda spirit of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda, told me that the Elementary Devouring Tactic is derived from a powerful Divine Ability in a Devata Realm called the Advanced Devouring Tactic. The Elementary Tactic is a downgraded version of the Advanced Devouring Tactic. Apparently, it was the Advanced Devouring Tactic that made a Heavenly Emperor of a Devata Realm famous… Based on this, I think the Advanced Devouring Tactic has to be at or above the King Grade!’
Duan Ling Tian remembered that Elder Huo, the pagoda spirit of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda, had mentioned the Advanced Devouring Tactic when he was still in the mundane realm.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flashed as he thought to himself, ‘In fact, it’s highly likely that the Advanced Devouring Tactic is of a higher grade than the King Grade. It’s probably at the Royal Grade or Emperor Grade!’
Upon recalling Elder Huo again after so many years, Duan Ling Tian could not help but sigh. ‘I wonder where Elder Huo is now…’
Previously, Duan Ling Tian had thought Elder Huo had died when he destroyed the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda and all the Celestial Weapons in the pagoda in order to save him. However, after ascending to a Devata Realm, he learned artifact souls of Emperor Grade Celestial Weapons were not capable of destroying Emperor Grade Celestial Weapons even if they were seemingly destroyed. For this reason, he had a feeling that Elder Huo was still alive. As for the disappearance of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda and Elder Huo, he was certain it was due to someone scheming in the dark.
‘I wonder what law is contained in the Advanced Devouring Tactic, the Divine Ability that made a Heavenly Emperor of a Devata Realm famous? Could it be the law of devouring that the Chaos Divine Earth mentioned earlier?’ Duan Ling Tian continued thinking to himself, ‘It said that the laws of earth are orthodox laws since they come from one of the five elements… However, there are special laws such as the law of time and space, the law of devouring, and the law of destruction. There are also natural laws such as the law of wind, the law of thunder, and the law of ice that are derived from the Five Elements Law…’
After handing Huang Jia Long the Memory Celestial Talisman that contained the wind-type King Grade Divine Ability, Bai Zhen Yue, the Deputy Patriarch of the Flying Tiger Clan’s branch in the Profound Nether Mansion, looked at Bai Gang and asked, “Bai Gang, do you want to return to the clan with me to receive your reward now or do you plan to return later on your own?”
“Deputy Patriarch, I’ll return with you,” Bai Gang said without any hesitation. A hint of excitement could be heard in his voice as though he knew his reward would be far more precious compared to Duan Ling Tian and Huang Jia Long’s reward.
“Good.” Bai Zhen Yue nodded.
Soon after, Bai Gang left with Bai Zhen Yue without bidding farewell to Duan Ling Tian and Huang Jia Long. He knew Duan Ling Tian and Huang Jia Long’s minds were now completely occupied with the King Grade Celestial Method and Divine Ability they had received. Since Old Mo and Huang Yuan Fei, the City Governor of Passage City, knew he was leaving, he did not bid them farewell as well.
When Huang Jia Long finally regained his senses, Bai Gang was long gone. “Father, where’s Uncle Bai?”
It was within expectations that Bai Zhen Yue would leave the Solitary Nation and return to the Flying Tiger Clan’s branch in the Profound Nether Mansion after rewarding Duan Ling Tian and Huang Jia Long. However, why was Bai Gang missing as well?
“Your Uncle Bai has returned to the clan branch,” Huang Yuan Fei said with a smile, “Kid, you’re really lucky. You actually obtained a King Grade Divine Ability… You know, even your father has never obtained any King Grade Celestial Method or Divine Ability before.” He was, naturally, truly happy his son managed to obtain a King Grade Divine Ability. In fact, he was probably happier than if he, himself, obtained a King Grade Divine Ability.
“Returned to the clan? Why?” Huang Jia Long frowned. “Will Uncle Bai come back?” He was clearly slightly upset. He had grown up with Old Mo and Bai Gang, after all. Therefore, he had deep affections for Bai Gang.
At this time, Duan Ling Tian finally came back to his senses. He discovered Bai Gang’s absence, and he could tell Huang Jia Long was rather sad.
“Don’t worry, when your Uncle Bai finishes evolving, he will, naturally, come back,” Huang Yuan Fei said with a smile, “It’s good that your Uncle Bai returns to the clan now. He’ll be handsomely rewarded for obtaining the Royal Grade Celestial Sword for the Flying Tiger Clan’s branch in the Profound Nether Mansion.”
“Huh?” Huang Jia Long became curious upon hearing his father’s words. “Father, what would Uncle Bai be rewarded with? Moreover, he has to return to the clan to get the reward…”
“Uncle Bai will be allowed to enter the Transformation Pool in the Flying Tiger Clan’s branch in the Profound Nether Mansion that only opens once every 10,000 years.” As Huang Yuan Fei spoke, his smile grew wider and wider. Bai Gang was like his brother, after all. How could he not be happy for Bai Gang?
“The Transformation Pool?” Duan Ling Tian was confused.
Meanwhile, Huang Jia Long’s eyes brightened as an ecstatic expression appeared on his face as soon as he heard his father’s words. “Father… I-Is this true?” He continued to say excitedly, “Uncle Bai… He… he’ll be allowed to enter the Transformation Pool?”
“Yes.” Huang Yuan Fei nodded.
“That’s amazing! When I was little, I heard Uncle Bai mentioning more than once that his biggest dream is to enter the Transformation Pool… It’s truly great that he’ll finally be able to achieve his dream!” Huang Jia Long said, clearly delighted.
Duan Ling Tian, who had grown extremely curious, finally asked, “Uncle Huang, Jia Long… What’s the Transformation Pool?”
“Brother Duan, the Transformation Pool is a spirit pool in the Flying Tiger Clan’s branch in the Profound Nether Mansion that opens only once every 10,000 years. Only one Copper Flying Tiger is allowed to enter each time it opens,” Huang Jia Long replied, “When a Copper Flying Tiger enters the Transformation Pool, it only needs to absorb the special energy in the pool and cultivate in seclusion for ten years. After ten years, it’ll be able to transform into a Silver Flying Tiger, a peak intermediate King Grade Celestial Beast! The pool is only useful for Copper Flying Tigers. If a Silver Flying Tiger or a Golden Flying Tiger enters the Transformation Pool, it won’t have any effect at all. Rumor has it that the clan branch in Profound Nether Mansion also has a Transformation Pool for Silver Flying Tigers. However, it’d only open once every 30,000 years. After entering the pool, a Silver Flying Tiger would be able to evolve into a Golden Flying Tiger, a peak advanced King Grade Celestial Beast!”
Then, Huang Jia Long’s tone turned excited again as he said, “This means when Uncle Bai returns after ten years, he would no longer be a Copper Flying Tiger, a peak elementary King Grade Celestial Beast. He would be a Silver Flying Tiger, a peak intermediate King Grade Celestial Beast!”
Duan Ling Tian was shocked since he was unaware of the Transformation Pool in the Flying Tiger Clan’s branch in the Profound Nether Mansion. He finally understood Huang Jia Long’s excitement now!
‘Without any fortuitous encounter, a Copper Flying Tiger would only be a Three Talents Celestial King at most. However, if it evolves into a Silver Flying Tiger, it’d be able to break through and become a Six Combinations Celestial King!’ Duan Ling Tian knew entering the Transformation Pool was a great opportunity for Bai Gang. After all, the strength between a Six Combinations Celestial King and a Three Talents Celestial King was incomparable!
At this moment, Huang Yuan Fei looked at Duan Ling Tian and said, “Little Tian, tomorrow is the day of the auction by the Imperial family of the Solitary Nation. If everything goes according to plan, the auction will be starting at night.”
“Okay, Uncle Huang.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Soon after, Duan Ling Tian bade farewell to Huang Yuan Fei and Old Mo and exited the hall.
Huang Jia Long followed suit. When he caught up to Duan Ling Tian, he asked curiously, “Brother Duan, what’s the name of that earth-type King Grade Celestial Method you received?”
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flashed as he said, “The Black Rock Prison Method.”
“The Black Rock Prison Method? Based on the name, your earth-type Celestial Method should be an assistive Celestial Method, right? If I’m not mistaken it should be a Celestial Method that could imprison people…”
“That’s right.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. Although he had yet to begin comprehending the earth-type Celestial Method, the Black Rock Prison Method, he knew the function of the Celestial Method. When one cast the Black Rock Prison Method, it would imprison its target. The gravitational force in the prison would be under the caster’s control. With the gravity under the caster’s control, the caster could use it to hurt and control the prisoners inside. Apart from that, the Black Rock Prison Method could also be used to form a defensive layer around the body to repel attacks.
After a moment, Duan Ling Tian asked, “What about the wind-type Celestial Method you received?” He was also rather curious about Huang Jia Ling’s Divine Ability.
According to the Chaos Divine Earth and the Chaos Divine Flame, the Divine Abilities at and above the King Grade contained the Internal Assistive Law Profundity. Therefore, he speculated that Huang Jia Long’s wind-type Divine Ability did not have the Main Offensive Profundity or the Main Movement Profundity. Instead, it probably contained an assistive profundity.
“My wind-type Divine Ability is called Gathering Storm. It strengthens and boosts my Celestial Origin Energy through the wind. In addition to this, the Divine Ability also contains the law of the wind, a profundity called Gathering Wind. Gathering Wind allows me to use all elements of the wind and similarly, boosts my Celestial Origin Energy,” Huang Jia Long replied.
Huang Jia Long’s words confirmed the Chaos Divine Earth and the Chaos Divine Flame’s earlier words. Divine Abilities at and above the King Grade contained the Internal Assistive Law Profundity. Gathering Wind, the law of the wind in Gathering Storm, was an internal assistive law.
