Chapter 2820: Unbelievably Talented in Alchemy
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After declining Long Fei Yun’s invitation to stay for the night, Duan Ling Tian, under Tie Tai He’s protection, returned to the Tai Yi Celestial Sect’s estate.
After returning to the Tai Yi Celestial Sect, Duan Ling Tian devoted his time to studying alchemy. Naturally, there were times when he felt bored or encountered difficulties. During those times, he would stop studying alchemy and focus on cultivating with the King Grade cultivation method, the Taiyi Profound Method, to break through and become a profound-rank Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestial instead.
Nothing eventful happened in the Tai Yi Celestial Sect and the Wasteland during this time. Everything was calm and peaceful.
Time passed by swiftly, and in just a blink of an eye, a year had passed. It was time for Duan Ling Tian to leave the Tai Yi Celestial Sect and the Wasteland to go to the Barren Land to participate in the Alchemy Conference.
In a spacious courtyard, the door to one of the rooms suddenly opened, and two people, who looked like they were a match made in heaven, walked out.
The man was handsome. He had sword-like brows and bright eyes. His bearing was graceful and extraordinary.
On the other hand, the woman was a peerless beauty with a figure to match. It seemed as though she had been personally sculpted by God himself. She seemed to make everything in her surroundings dim in comparison.
The white-clad woman looked at the man next to her and asked with a smile, “Brother Ling Tian, shall we look for Sect Leader Bai Ping now?” Her smile was incredibly dazzling.
This woman was none other than Huan’er who had been in closed-door cultivation for a long time. The man next to her was, naturally, Duan Ling Tian. He had been cultivating with her as well.
“Okay.” Duan Ling Tian nodded gently. “The sect leader and I have agreed to meet at noon today... It’s almost time now.” He raised his head to look at the sky. The scorching sun hung high in the horizons. Based on the sun’s position, he could tell it would be noon in a quarter of an hour.
A thought appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s mind and he asked knowingly, “By the way... Huan’er, did you have a breakthrough?”
Previously, Huan’er had been an earth-rank Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestial. If she truly had a breakthrough, it meant she was a heaven-rank Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestial now!
Although Duan Ling Tian had been cultivating in the same room as Huan’er for more than a year, they did not have any interaction. Each of them was deeply engrossed with cultivating. He had only woken Huan’er up from her cultivation today because they would be leaving to the Barren Land to attend the Alchemy Conference.
Huan’er replied with a smile, “I had a breakthrough two months ago.”
“Two months ago?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up, and he congratulated Huan’er. “Huan’er, congratulations! You’ve become stronger again.”
“Brother Ling Tian, you’re making fun of me again... I’m sure you know that I’m currently lacking in strength. Although I’ve become a heaven-rank Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestial, my strength is inferior to my peers,” Huan’er said with a sigh. Although she had inherited extraordinary Celestial Methods and Divine Abilities, she had difficulties comprehending them. For this reason, she could not unleash the full potential of the Celestial Methods and Divine Abilities. She could not even compare to Duan Ling Tian when it came to the mastery of their Celestial Methods and Divine Abilities. Due to this reason, her strength is weaker than most heaven-rank Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestials. In fact, she might not even be a match to really outstanding and powerful earth-rank Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestials who had complete mastery of their Celestial Methods and Divine Abilities.
“Huan’er, you’re still so young,” Duan Ling Tian said in an attempt to comfort her, “Moreover, with your talent, if you continue to devote yourself to comprehending the Celestial Methods and Divine Abilities, you’ll undoubtedly improve. Don’t give up if you encounter a bottleneck. Just cultivate diligently, and your cultivation base will naturally improve.”
“Alright, I’ll listen to your advice.” Huan’er nodded.
Seeing how obedient Huan’er was, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze turned even more doting. Then, he turned to look at the sun again and said, “It’s almost time... Let’s find the sect leader!” He led Huan’er to Bai Ping’s residence after that. It did not take long for them to arrive in Bai Ping’s residence since they lived on the same prominent Celestial Island in the Tai Yi Celestial Sect’s estate.
After Bai Ping was informed of their arrival, they entered the main hall.
As soon as Duan Ling Tian entered the hall, he discovered the three prominent Celestial Alchemists of the Tai Yi Celestial Sect were already there.
“Master Situ, Master Yang, Master Yu,” Duan Ling Tian respectfully greeted Situ Ming, Yang Chong, and Yu Zhong. They were sincere and had done their best to help him in his pursuit of alchemy so he regarded them as his elders. In fact, he did not even treat Bai Ping with as much respect as he did the three prominent Celestial Alchemists.
Bai Ping, who was standing at the side, could naturally sense this. However, he was not offended. After all, he knew Duan Ling Tian was respectful to the three prominent Celestial Alchemists because he considered them his teachers.
Upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s greetings, the three responded in unison, “Master Duan, Huan’er.”
Duan Ling Tian looked around the main hall. “There’s one person missing... It seems like the Old Ancestor hasn’t arrived.”
This time, six people from the Tai Yi Celestial Sect would be going to the Barren Land to participate in the Alchemy Conference. Five out of the six people had arrived. The sixth person was none other than the Old Ancestor of the Tai Yi Celestial Sect, the only Eight Trigrams Celestial Duke in the sect.
“Masters, please wait a moment. The Old Ancestor should be here soon,” Bai Ping said reassuringly, seeing the Old Ancestor was still absent even though it was already noon. There would be no need for these words if Duan Ling Tian was a true elder of the Tai Yi Celestial Sect. After all, everyone in the sect was juniors of the ancestor. It was only normal for juniors to wait for their seniors. There was no need for justifications. However, Duan Ling Tian was just an interim elder of the sect. He could leave whenever he wanted. Naturally, the Tai Yi Celestial Sect could stop him from leaving by threatening him. However, in the future, who would dare to become an interim elder in the sect if word of it spread out?
“It’s okay,” Situ Ming shook his head and said with a smile, “The three of us can make use of this time to discuss alchemy with Master Duan about alchemy... During the past year, our skills have improved as well with Master Duan’s help.”
“That’s true,” Yang Chong chimed in. Then, he looked at Duan Ling Tian and teased him in a good-natured manner. “Master Duan, if you haven’t made any progress during this past year, I’m afraid you will have to learn from us for a while.”
Although Yu Zhong Jing didn’t speak, his eyes were filled with expectations when he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
After half an hour, the three prominent Celestial Alchemists could no longer laugh. When the four of them discussed alchemy, Duan Ling Tian’s words and knowledge would render them speechless. They had no way to refute his words at all. In just half an hour, they discovered that Duan Ling Tian’s knowledge and skills in alchemy had far surpassed their knowledge and skills.
Bai Ping who was standing at the side wore a shocked expression on his face. After witnessing Duan Ling Tian’s speed in heating up his cauldron, he had spoken to the three prominent Celestial Alchemists. He had learned that apart from his superior speed in heating cauldrons, Duan Ling Tian was, initially, inferior to the three prominent Celestial Alchemists in other aspects. Then, more than a year ago, he heard the three say that Duan Ling Tian had improved to the point where they had nothing left to teach him. They were on equal footing. Today, in just half an hour, he shockingly discovered how talented Duan Ling Tian was. Duan Ling Tian seemed to have surpassed the three prominent Celestial Alchemists!
Situ Ming looked at Duan Ling Tian. Hints of shock still lingered on his face. “Master Duan, more than a year ago, I had a feeling that you had a sudden enlightenment... It seems like I’m right. You’ve grown even more skilled!”
“I agree.” Yang Chong nodded. Similarly, he had a shocked expression on his face as well. “Master Duan, your knowledge in alchemy is extraordinary even among top Celestial Alchemists in the entire Six Southeastern Region!” The entire Six Southeastern Region! It was evident that he was greatly impressed by Duan Ling Tian’s alchemy knowledge and skills.
“I’ve had a chance to speak to the prominent Celestial Alchemist who’s widely acknowledged as the most skilled in the past Alchemy Conference... Master Duan, I have to say that you’re even more skilled than him!” Yu Zhong Jing said, clearly amazed.
