Chapter 3177: The Death of Gongsun Wu Ji


Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation


Ximen Hao Xuan’s comprehension ability was on par with Gongsun Wu Ji. Although Ximen Hao Xuan was slower than Gongsun Wu Ji speed-wise, Gongsun Wu Ji was weaker than Ximen Hao Xuan in other aspects. Previously, Ximen Hao Xuan had openly said that his offensive power was inferior to Duan Ling Tian’s and that Duan Ling Tian’s offensive power was peerless in the middle realm of the Southern Heaven Ancient Realm. In short, this meant that Gongsun Wu Ji was not a match for Duan Ling Tian in a direct battle.


Gongsun Wu Ji might have had a chance of defeating Duan Ling Tian with his speed before Duan Ling Tian comprehended the law of space’s Transportation Profundity. Alas, now that Duan Ling Tian had comprehended the Transportation Profundity to the rudimentary stage, Gongsun Wu Ji did not stand a chance of defeating Duan Ling Tian even if he was slightly faster than Duan Ling Tian. The difference in their speed now was negligible.


‘Damn it! He’s comprehended the law of space’s Transportation Profundity!’ Gongsun Wu Ji cursed inwardly as his eyes flashed with resentment. With this revelation, he was aware that he was not a match for Duan Ling Tian; he had already lost this battle.


‘I have to return to the base…’ Although Gongsun Wu Ji felt incredibly reluctant to return to the Azure Green Mansion’s base, he knew he had no other choice. After all, he knew he would only be giving Duan Ling Tian a chance to defeat him if he did not return to the mansion’s base.


Swoosh!


Gongsun Wu Ji was about to make his way back to the Azure Green Mansion’s base when a purple figure suddenly appeared before him and barred his way. Needless to say, the purple figure was none other than Duan Ling Tian who had just cast the Teleportation Profundity to stop Gongsun Wu Ji from leaving.


Duan Ling Tian looked at Gongsun Wu Ji and said mockingly, “What’s the problem? Didn’t you say you’re going to kill me? Don’t tell you’re trying to escape now?”


As soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, peals of laughter rang in the air. A group of Profound Nether Mansion disciples had come over to watch the spectacle. Initially, they were not confident that Duan Ling Tian would be able to defeat Gongsun Wu Ji. However, after watching the recent development that proved Duan Ling Tian’s strength, many of them felt reinvigorated. Some of them even began to taunt Gongsun Wu Ji.


“Gongsun Wu Ji, didn’t you say that you wanted to kill Senior Brother Ling Tian? What happened? Why are you trying to escape back to the Azure Green Mansion’s base?”


“Gongsun Wu Ji, you’re a joke!”


“Our Profound Nether Mansion’s Senior Brother Ling Tian is the strongest! Even Gongsun Wu Ji needs to turn tail and run when faced with Senior Brother Ling Tian!”


On the contrary, a gloomy atmosphere loomed over the Azure Green Mansion disciples.


A few of those who were knowledgeable already knew the outcome of the battle as soon as they saw Duan Ling Tian casting the law of space’s Transportation Profundity.


On the other hand, the remaining majority of the Azure Green Mansion disciples only felt disappointed that the show was ending when they saw Gongsun Wu Ji trying to return to the Azure Green Mansion’s base. The fact was most of the Azure Green Mansion disciples only came to watch the show. After all, the match between their mansion’s core disciple, Gongsun Wu Ji, and the Profound Nether Mansion’s Duan Ling Tian was bound to be exciting. They were eager to watch Gongsun Wu Ji defeat Duan Ling Tian. Alas, not only did Gongsun Wu Ji fail to defeat Duan Ling Tian, but Gongsun Wu Ji was even forced to escape as well. How could they not feel disappointed?


“Let’s go! Let’s go! There’s nothing interesting to see here!”


“I really didn’t expect the Profound Nether Mansion’s Duan Ling Tian to be so strong that even Senior Brother Gongsun isn’t a match for him!”


“Is there anyone in the middle realm who’s capable of defeating Duan Ling Tian now?”


“Even Senior Brother Gongsun Wu Ji was forced to escape… I think the other five strongest Ten Directions Celestial Dukes aren’t any faster than Duan Ling Tian, right? Senior Brother Gongsun might be able to escape, but the other five might not be able to escape from Duan Ling Tian, right?”


“Duan Ling Tian’s appearance has completely disrupted the power balance in the middle realm!”


“That’s right! Unless he’s extremely unlucky, the top spot on the scoreboard definitely belongs to him now!”


The Azure Green Mansion disciples’ expressions were rather gloomy as they whispered among themselves. Many of them even left the middle realm.



Meanwhile, back at the sites of the Transporting Formations in the Azure Green Mansion’s estate.


The disciples who chose to return caught everyone’s attention. Those who could not enter previously grew excited. Now that there were people leaving, they assumed they would be granted entry to the middle realm.


“Someone’s coming!”


“Does this mean I’ll be able to enter the middle realm?”


“I want to enter! I want to enter!”


The group of disciples who had returned from the middle realm shook their heads when they heard the others clamoring to enter the middle realm.


“Enter the middle realm? Do all of you plan to enter the middle realm to see how our Azure Green Mansion gets humiliated?”


“It’s pointless to enter now… If I knew this would happen, I wouldn’t have bothered entering the middle realm.”


“How embarrassing!”


The Azure Green Mansion disciples who were denied entry to the middle realm were naturally confused when they heard these words.


“Embarrassing? Humiliating?”


“What happened? Hasn’t Senior Brother Gongsun arrived at our base yet?”


Then, the group of disciples who had just returned from the middle realm recounted what had happened, leaving the others in shock.


Gongsun Wu Ji, a core disciple of the Azure Green Mansion, whom they were confident could overpower Duan Ling Tian was forced to escape!


“It’s truly embarrassing! I’m not going to enter the middle realm!”


“It’s so disappointing! I am not entering as well!”


Not only did the expressions of the disciples turn sour, but even the elders’ expressions did not look too good.


If even Gongsun Wu Ji could not defeat Duan Ling Tian, was there anyone in the Azure Green Mansion who was capable of defeating Duan Ling Tian?


It was destined that the Azure Green Mansion’s performance in the middle realm of the Southern Heaven Realm would not be good this month.


“Fortunately, Senior Brother Gongsun has already risen to second place this month. Even if he’s forced to escape, he’ll still be able to maintain his rank this month…”


As soon as someone said these words, some of the disciples instinctively turned to look at the scoreboard with a relieved expression on their faces. However, in just a moment, their expressions stiffened when they saw Gongsun Wu Ji’s name disappearing from the scoreboard while Duan Ling Tian who was ranked 7th instantly leaped to the top spot!


“How’s this possible?!”


“Senior Brother Gongsun is eliminated by Duan Ling Tian?”


“Didn’t you say Senior Brother Gongsun was going to escape? He’s faster than Duan Ling Tian, right? How did this happen?”


“What happened?”


Gongsun Wu Ji’s disappearance from the scoreboard, naturally, caused a huge commotion. After all, even if he was forced to escape by Duan Ling Tian, the Azure Green Mansion disciples and elders did not expect him to be eliminated by Duan Ling Tian. Even if Duan Ling Tian’s speed was on par with Gongsun Wu Ji, if push came to shove, Gongsun Wu Ji should still be able to escape from Duan Ling Tian, right?


Who could tell them what happened?



Back in the middle realm of the Southern Heaven Ancient Realm.


The Azure Green Mansion disciples in their mansion’s base were even more shocked compared to those in the mansion’s estate. After all, not only did they witness Gongsun Wu Ji’s elimination, but they witnessed Gongsun Wu Ji’s death!


Although Duan Ling Tian’s speed was impressive after he had comprehended the two movement profundities from the law of space, the Teleportation Profundity and the Transportation Profundity, his speed should still be slightly slower than Gongsun Wu Ji. With this, Gongsun Wu Ji should have been able to escape from Duan Ling Tian. However, all of them saw Duan Ling Tian appearing in a flash in front of Gongsun Wu Ji as soon as Gongsun Wu Ji tried to escape. They had even seen the expression of disbelief on Gongsun Wu Ji’s face before he was killed by Duan Ling Tian!


With this, it was clear to the onlookers that Duan Ling Tian had been holding back his strength.


The disciples from the other grade-six Celestial Mansions were equally stunned when they witnessed this scene.


“How terrifying! Duan Ling Tian cast the Cross-Dimensional Profundity thrice around Gongsun Wu Ji and created three spatial tears before sword rays shot out at such a speed that Gongsun Wu Ji didn’t even have time to dodge them!”


“Casting the Cross-Dimensional Slash Profundity three times in a row… Is that even possible when he has only comprehended the Cross-Dimensional Slash Profundity to the rudimentary stage?”


“Based on my knowledge, one can only cast the Cross-Dimensional Slash Profundity thrice and create three spatial tears once one has comprehended it to the initial stage!”


“Duan Ling Tian has yet to celebrate his 100th birthday, but he’s already a Ten Directions Celestial Duke who’s comprehended the law of space. As if that’s not impressive enough, he even managed to comprehend one of the profundities to the initial stage!”


At this moment, everyone seemed to have forgotten about Gongsun Wu Ji’s death. All of their attention was focused on Duan Ling Tian.


Usually, only those who had comprehended nine profundities from a law to the rudimentary stage would have the opportunity to further comprehend the profundities to the initial stage. Apart from that, the majority of those who comprehended profundities to the initial stage were Celestial Lords! It was already a rare occurrence for a Celestial King to comprehend a profundity to the initial stage, let alone a Celestial Duke. No one had ever heard of a Celestial Duke who managed to comprehend a profundity to the initial stage. This was unprecedented in the Southern Heaven Territory!


“Duan Ling Tian must have been hiding his true strength all this time…” Heng Feng, a disciple from the Martial Battle Mansion, said solemnly and with great certainty as he looked at Duan Ling Tian who was hovering high above the Azure Green Mansion’s base like a god.


Meanwhile, Wan Qing Qing who was standing nearby was thoroughly shocked as well. At this moment, her usually expressionless face was filled with disbelief and shock. Similar to Heng Feng, she was sure Duan Ling Tian had hidden his true strength before this. Even without her help, he could have ranked first in the middle realm of the Southern Heaven Ancient Realm! She could still accept him comprehending the law of space’s Transportation Profundity within two weeks. However, she had difficulties believing he had comprehended the Cross-Dimensional Slash Profundity to the initial stage!


“So not only did Duan Ling Tian comprehend at least seven profundities from the law of space, but he has also comprehended one of the profundities to the initial stage!” Many keen observers arrived at the same conclusion.


At this moment, an inner disciple from the Han Qing Mansion said, “This is only Duan Ling Tian’s third time in the middle realm, but he has already killed Gongsun Wu Ji… After this battle, I don’t think there’ll be anyone bold enough to go against him in the middle realm!”
