3283 To the Title Temple

    "The Godly Image Phenomenon?" Duan Ling Tian raised his eyebrows slightly. "What's that, Sister Water?"

    "It's difficult to explain it right now. You'll understand for yourself once you're done refining the energy from the Pine Willow Divine Tree and mastering the Godly Image Phenomenon," the World Cleansing Divine Water replied.

    "How do I refine the Pine Willow Divine Tree's energy?" Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.

    "Normally, through ordinary means, it'll take a person at least 10 years to completely refine the energy if they don't eat and sleep. However, there's a place that will help you refine the energy within a year," the World Cleansing Divine Water said.

    "What is that place?" Duan Ling Tian's eyes brightened immediately. He only had three years before he had to meet Han Yun Jin in a life-or-death battle. Therefore, it was not an option for him to refine the Pine Willow Divine Tree's energy through ordinary means.

    "The Title Temple!" the World Cleansing Divine Water replied.

    Duan Ling Tian was taken aback by the World Cleansing Divine Water's answer. His mind traveled back to the time when he was in the Six Southeastern Regions, the borders of the Overarching Spirit Heaven's Southern Heaven Territory. The Overarching Spirit Heaven was the first Devata Realm he had ascended to in the past. It was there that he had first learned about Title Temples. In order to become titled Celestial Lords or Celestial Emperors, one would have to go to the Title Temple and pass a test before one would be bestowed a title.

    The importance of a title was not to be taken lightly. There were a few Celestial Emperors in the Jade Emperor Heaven's Nan Dou Territory who opted not to go to Title Temple to obtain a title. Due to their lack of titles, many did not think they could stand on equal grounds with titled Celestial Emperors even if their strength was equal.

    Duan Ling Tian remembered the words that others had said to him. "Ordinary Celestial Lords can't compare to titled Celestial Lord. In order to become a titled Celestial Lord, you'll have to go to the sacred and mysterious place in the Devata Realm, the Title Temple, and compete against nine contenders in a life-or-death battle. The last one standing will be bestowed a title. At that time, the name and title of that Celestial Lord will be recorded in the Title Temple's records and announced in the entire Devata Realm. How can an ordinary Celestial Lord be capable of defeating nine of his peers? Therefore, there's no doubt that those who are capable of becoming a titled Celestial Lord are monstrously talented."

    Duan Ling Tian learned about all these things when he was at the border region of the Southern Heaven Territory in the Overarching Spirit Heaven. It was also at that time that he learned the Title Temple not only reigned supreme over other forces, but it was superior to a Heavenly Emperor's force!

    "Title Temples are the most sacred and mysterious place in their respective Devata Realms. They're a neutral force so they never intervene in disputes in the cultivation world. And yet, they're acknowledged as the most terrifying force in Devata Realms. Naturally, with so many Devata Realms, there were a few top-tier forces that tried to challenge Title Temples and destroy their legacies. Alas, all of these forces were annihilated without exception."

    Duan Ling Tian had heard that there were at least 10 Heavenly Emperors who tried to destroy Title Temples in the past. Alas, all of them perished. Title Temples had existed since time immemorial and were the oldest forces in their respective Devata Realms. Rumor had it that there were many elites in Title Temples; some of them were said to be even stronger than a Ten Directions Celestial Emperor.

    At this moment, Duan Ling Tian asked curiously, "Sister Water, I've heard in the past that Title Temples have connections to supreme powerhouses. Is that true?"

    He remembered the Chaos Divine Flame, the Profound Divine Metal, and the Chaos Divine Earth mentioned that the mysterious Title Temples were related to supreme powerhouses.

    "Yes," the World Cleansing Divine Water replied, "However, it's not as simple as just a small connection. A Title Temple is founded by a supreme powerhouse!"

    Duan Ling Tian inhaled sharply upon hearing the World Cleansing Water's reply. "As expected! Sister Water, how's going to the Title Temple going to help me refine the Pine Willow Divine Tree's energy and master the Godly Image Phenomenon in one year?"

    "By successfully obtaining a title in the Title Temple," the World Cleansing Divine Water explained, "To obtain the title and become a titled Celestial Lord, you'll have to compete or battle nine other Celestial Lords. There are many trials and tribulations in the secret realm. It's a place fraught with danger and contains the will of a supreme powerhouse. Therefore, as you go through the tests, your speed in refining the energy from the Pine Willow Divine Tree will increase tremendously."

    Based on the World Cleansing Divine Water's words, it seemed like it was familiar with the trials in the Title Temples.

    Duan Ling Tian was not particularly surprised by the World Cleansing Divine Water's knowledge. After all, it had lived for who-knew-how-long in the ruins of a Realm of Gods. It was within reason that it was privy to secrets in the Realms of Gods and Devata Realms like the Title Temples.

    "With your current strength, it shouldn't be difficult for you to become a titled Celestial Lord. Obtaining a title is secondary; your main purpose for going to the Title Temple is to refine the energy of the Pine Willow Divine Tree and master the Godly Image Phenomenon in a year,' the World Cleansing Divine Water reminded Duan Ling Tian.

    "Understood." Duan Ling Tian nodded.

    When Huan'er awoke from her cultivation state, Duan Ling Tian brought her along as he went to look for Xu Lang, the Verdant Prairie Celestial Emperor.

    When Duan Ling Tian saw Xu Lang, he said without beating around the bush, "Teacher, I want to go to the Title Temple."

    "You want a title? Xu Lang asked.

    "Yes." Duan Ling Tian nodded. Although that was not his main priority, it was best to let his teacher believe this since it would be difficult to explain how he obtained the Godly Image Phenomenon.

    "With your strength, it should be relatively easy for you to become a Celestial Lord. I'll be honest with you; a title might be able to intimidate those in small places, but in places like heaven-grade forces, it doesn't have any intimidation factor at all. Apart from that, the test would last for somewhere between half a year to two years. It's going to be a waste of your time. It's better for you to spend that time cultivating to prepare for your battle with Han Yun Jin after three years."

    Based on Xu Lang's words, it was clear that he did think it was wise for Duan Ling Tian to go to the Title Temple.

    "Teacher, I'm not afraid of Han Yun Jin... I'm confident I can defeat him even if I have to fight him now, let alone three years later." Duan Ling Tian knew it was best to tell partial truths now to convince Xu Lang of his intention to go to the Title Temple.

    "Hmm?" As expected, Xu Lang was rather taken aback by Duan Ling Tian's words.

    Duan Ling Tian said again, "Teacher, please direct me to the Title Temple. I'd like to go out and explore."

    "Let me take you there..." Xu Lang no longer tried to dissuade Duan Ling Tian after seeing how resolute Duan Ling Tian was. He even volunteered to bring Duan Ling Tian to the Title Temple.

    "Let me see if your senior brothers and senior sisters are interested in a fun trip to the Title Temple. Let's go together if they're interested," Xu Lang said as he sent messages to his prodigious disciples.

    Xu Lang sent out messages as he spoke. Aside from Duan Ling Tian's Second Senior Brother, Lyu Ji, he had sent messages to Hu Mei, Wen Wan Er, Ouyang Qi Fei, and Hong Fei because they were Celestial Lords among.

    "Fun trip?" The corners of Duan Ling Tian's mouth could not help but twitch when she heard Xu Lang's words. It seemed like the test for Celestial Lords in the Title Temple was merely child's play to a titled Celestial Emperor. Nonetheless, he knew Xu Lang used that specific words because it was, indeed, easy for his senior brothers and senior sisters to obtain a title if they so wished.

    After a moment, Xu Lang shook his head as he said with a faint smile on his face, "Your Sixth Senior Brother, Hong Fei, didn't respond to my message; he must be in closed-door cultivation. However, your Third Senior Sister and Fourth Senior Sister will be joining us..."

    Just a few moments had passed when two figures appeared in front of Duan Ling Tian's eyes. One of them was a red-clad beauty with an alluring curvaceous figure while the other was a beauty who looked as gentle as a dove. The two were none other than his Third and Fourth Senior Sister, Hu Mei and Wen Wan'er.

    As soon as Hu Mei arrived, she winked and said with a smile, "Little Junior Brother, Teacher said you want to go to the Title Temple to have some fun. Your Fourth Senior Sister and I have never been to the Title Temple so let's go together and have fun."

    At the same time, Wen Wan'er greeted Duan Ling Tian and Huan'er. "Little Junior Brother, Junior Sister Huan'er."

    "There won't be a dull moment during our trip with Third Senior Sister and Fourth Senior Sister's presence," Duan Ling Tian replied with a smile.

    Hu Mei turned to look at Huan'er and asked with a smile, "Junior Sister Huan'er, with your strength, it won't be difficult for you to obtain a title. Why don't you try to get a title?"

    Huan'er only nodded slightly in response to Hu Mei. She clearly still held a grudge against Hu Mei.

    "The Title Temple is quite far from the Heavenly Pool Palace... However, we should be able to arrive within two days if I bring everyone there," Xu Lang said. As soon as he finished speaking, a sword ray appeared under his feet immediately. Following that, using his energy, he brought Duan Ling Tian and the others with him and left his cultivation place.


    In a blink of an eye, the sword ray sped out of the Heavenly Pool Palace's estate.

    Duan Ling Tian watched the scenery sped by in a blur. They were traveling at such a high speed that it was difficult to see their surroundings clearly. He exclaimed, "How fast!"

    Despite moving at such a high speed, Duan Ling Tian and the others did not feel unstable. This was because Xu Lang had kept the wind at bay with his energy since it could make the others feel unstable.
