852 Battling and Clearing Stages

    "You've forgotten?"

    The two Mage Kings were taken by surprise, "Could it be that the Imperial Preceptor still remembers?"

    "Mmm. It's probably that your cultivation is insufficient, so you're unable to recall the details." Fang Xingjian's eyes gleamed, and he looked toward the wordless monument once again, leaving that line drifting in the minds of the two Mage Kings.

    "I still need to enter it one more time. The two of you did a good job just now. I still need you to continue staying on guard."

    As Fang Xingjian's martial will smashed toward the wordless monument once again, he felt that everything before him were blurry and chaotic. It was as if he was passing through countless time periods and spaces before arriving in a stretch of darkness.

    There was no air or sunlight, and the temperature seemed to be kept eternally at approximately negative 270 degrees Celsius. The environment was just as harsh as a vacuum in space.

    However, these were nothing to Fang Xingjian. He lit up a stream of light that radiated out in all directions like the sun.

    At a distance of over ten kilometers away from Fang Xingjian, there was a long-haired man dressed in a priest's robe looking at him.

    The man had no intention to chat. At the very moment he saw Fang Xingjian, the man had already struck out his palm toward Fang Xingjian.


    Being in the darkness without air or sunlight, it was impossible to communicate through language. Fang Xingjian only felt an extremely violent martial will exploding in his mind.

    At the next moment, the other party's palm had already struck Fang Xingjian's chest.

    Boom! A power, which was as if a star had fallen and the world had collapsed, exploded in his body. At the same time as when Fang Xingjian's countenance changed, streams of light shot out from his body and slashed onto his opponent's body.

    However, they were like ordinary longswords slashing against a steel plate. The opponent's robe shattered, but his physical body was unscathed. Instead, his body was encased in a layer of martial will, completely blocking out Fang Xingjian's attacks.

    At the next moment, the man swung out a punch and fiercely smashed it into Fang Xingjian's fist.


    The two of them continued to exchange blows in this endless stretch of darkness. The opponent's strength and speed far surpassed that of the Black Mage King and the Red Mage King whom Fang Xingjian had faced in the past. Although the opponent's strength and speed were greatly inferior to those of the Evil God Tribe's warrior, the man had battle techniques which far surpassed the warrior's. The man kept on displaying all sorts of secret martial techniques, forcing Fang Xingjian to constantly fight at full power using the Celestial Eradication Sword Formation.

    'As expected, this one is even stronger?'

    Although the opponent was very powerful, Fang Xingjian had long gotten used to the consecutive battles after entering the wordless monument. After testing out the opponent's capabilities, four streams of sword light soared into the air, and layers of illusory arts were cast. That man immediately came to a stop, seemingly unable to track down Fang Xingjian's traces.

    However, Fang Xingjian was able to continuously attack his opponent without him noticing.

    Streams of sword light slashed onto the man in the priest's robes, but his body was encased in a dense layer of white air currents. After receiving millions and millions of consecutive slashes from the sword light, only a little bit of the man's strength was depleted.

    However, it was fortunate that after the successive battles in the wordless monument, Fang Xingjian also discovered that the other party seemed to be an existence that had no intelligence and was only capable of acting based on his instincts.

    After realizing that he was unable to locate Fang Xingjian, that man immediately went on full defense mode. Streams of martial will turned into milky white air currents and wrapped up his body completely.

    After the war of attrition continued for one hour, Fang Xingjian finally managed to wear down and kill the opponent, making use of the fact that the opponent did not possess any intelligence.

    At the next moment, a light spot descended from the sky. Fang Xingjian knew that this was the reward for having defeated the opponent. He did not resist and allowed the light spot to enter his body. Then he instantly sensed many pieces of knowledge and various profoundness about the microscopic world appearing in his memories.

    The wordless monument was extremely mysterious. From the moment Fang Xingjian's martial will entered, he had engaged in battles, one after another. Although they were not actual battles but just exchanges of the wills, they still felt extremely realistic.

    It started from the level of ordinary people at the very beginning, moving on to the level of special forces soldiers, and then finally reaching the current point where the toughness of this opponent's body far surpassed that of the Red Mage King. Each new opponent was more powerful than the last, and the battle environment also became increasingly abominable.

    Additionally, each time Fang Xingjian defeated his opponent, he was able to obtain a set of knowledge as his reward.

    Fang Xingjian silently sensed the profoundness of the microscopic world and put them together with the knowledge he had obtained earlier. Although he had yet to fully incorporate them into his Celestial Eradication Sword Formation, Fang Xingjian was able to sense that the application of his powers had become even more skillful.

    Simultaneously, a human figure slowly appeared, and Fang Xingjian knew that his next opponent had appeared. After having defeated over 50 opponents consecutively, Fang Xingjian's aura was increasingly deep and unfathomable. Streams of intense chaotic light burst out from his body occasionally and then disappeared.

    'Till now, I've killed over 700 opponents in total. It's true that each one is stronger than the one before.

    'However, all of them are humans... Where did these experts come from? Are they also from Earth? Why have I not seen them before?'

    Fang Xingjian frowned and could not help recalling what he experienced when he strived for the Nine-Tiered Heavens previously. He had arrived in the Earth's parallel world and initially thought that Earth and Miracle World were the same place existing on different points of the same timeline. This was why he had tried to guide Earth to move toward the direction of Miracle World.

    However, by the looks of it, in terms of the astrological aspects or geographical terrains, they did not seem to be the same world. Furthermore, the existence of the Moon's relics seemed to show that before humans from the modern world appeared on Earth, an extremely developed civilization had already been existing there.

    'Then are these phantom experts hidden in the wordless monument actually the experts from a past civilization on Earth? Why did they leave behind this wordless monument?'

    Fang Xingjian analyzed the situation in detail and had the faint feeling that the things on the Moon's relics seemed to all have the objective of making mankind stronger.

    If Earth's humans were to get stronger, the people who came from other parallel worlds through the Nine-Tiered Heavens would face greater difficulty in their attempt to change Earth's history.

    'So, are the two parties on opposing sides? The people from the past developed civilization on Earth left behind these relics to strengthen the people who are currently on Earth. Could it be that they wanted to go up against the way Nine-Tiered Heavens' system was trying to change history?'

    Just as Fang Xingjian was analyzing the connection between all these, an elderly man-who wore a tall hat, had a thin figure, dressed in a sky blue long robe, and had a long beard-appeared before Fang Xingjian. His new opponent had arrived.

    "Who dares to offend our Heavenly Dao Palace?!"

    Boom! It was as if a sun had been lit up instantly. Then as an explosive bellow that sank deep into one's heart rang out, streams of white air currents burst from that old priest's body and shot out in all directions.

    'It's this type of power again.' Fang Xingjian focused and observed the overwhelming energy coming from the opponent's body. It seemed to be similar to martial will yet different at the same time. Each of the past over 300 opponents had also grasped this power that was similar to martial will.

    After the old priest unleashed his powers explosively, his figure transformed, and he suddenly dissipated.The robe here can potentially mean either the robe worn by Taoist priests or a generic traditional men's robes. I assumed it to be the former.One of seven great sects mentioned in another book written by the Bear Wolfdog.
