Ling Jue Yun shot out of the red-eyed Ling Jue Yun and transformed into a sword before killing the old man.
Upon seeing this, a middle-aged man exclaimed in horror, “That’s his real form! The one with the blood-red eyes is just a doppelganger from the power of a profundity!”
“Based on his techniques, it seems like he has comprehended one of the Four Supreme Laws. It should be the law of death!” a young man said with widened eyes, “To my knowledge, the Undead Doppelganger is a profundity from the law of death! It creates a clone of the caster that has a stronger defense. Apart from that, the clone’s combat strength is almost the same as the original. The clone is also capable of wielding Celestial Weapons and other techniques its real form has comprehended. During a battle, the real form can also hide inside the clone and make a move during the crucial moment!” The look in his eyes changed as he looked at Ling Jue Yun and his clone near the end of his words.
At this moment, the red-eyed Ling Jue Yun flickered and vanished into the real Ling Jue Yun’s body.
A gentle breeze stirred up, and Ling Jue Yun’s Celestial Origin Energy gradually subsided.
The place was restored to its previous calmness.
Finally, Xue Jing Yu and the other participants regained their senses. They were thoroughly shocked when they saw Ling Jue Yun’s strength and capabilities. They did not expect him to be so formidable. In fact, it seemed like he was even stronger than Duan Ling Tian. They looked at each other and saw the bitter smiles on each other’s faces. In the past, most of them had thought of themselves as geniuses. However, after meeting Ling Jue Yun and Duan Ling Tian, they were completely disabused of that notion. The duo was not even 100 years old, but they had comprehended two profundities from a law!
“The law of death?”
“Ling Jue Yun comprehended the law of death? Good heavens! The law of death is one of the Four Supreme Laws! It can’t be comprehended through Celestial Methods or Divine Abilities. One would only be able to comprehend it if one had a fortuitous encounter or inherit it from someone!”
“The requirements to comprehend the Four Supreme Laws are the most demanding compared to the other laws. Ling Jue Yun isn’t even 100 years old, but he has comprehended two profundities from the law of death! He’s really a freak among freaks!”
“In my opinion, he’s much more talented than Duan Ling Tian! After all, he has comprehended the law of death, one of the Four Supreme Laws!”
After killing the old man, Ling Jue Yun claimed the last King Grade Celestial Weapon.
There was nothing Xue Jing Yu and the others could do. If they tried to stop him, there was no doubt they would die!
“The cloak he possesses seems like a purely defensive Royal Grade Celestial Weapon, right? Why does he even need a King Grade Celestial Weapon?” Xue Jing Yu was perplexed.
Upon hearing Xue Jing Yu’s words, a young man laughed lightly before he said, “Let me ask you, if you own a purely defensive Royal Grade Celestial Weapon, would you dare to simply use it?”
“That’s right! Since we’re in the Celestial Lord Temple, we won’t remember anything about it once we leave the Southern Heaven Ancient Realm. That’s the only reason he had used his defensive Royal Grade Celestial Weapon. He knows he won’t be exposed since no one would have memories of it.”
“That’s right. If it’s not because we won’t have memories of the Celestial Lord Temple, I’m afraid he’d probably kill all of us to prevent us from divulging his secret.”
“Well… It’s unlikely that he’ll recklessly kill all of us. After all, the more people die, the faster the exit in the lower realm of the Southern Heaven Ancient Realm will open.”
“That’s right. Once the exit is open, even those in the Celestial Lord Temple have to leave as soon as possible. Otherwise, they’d be trapped in the Southern Heaven Ancient Realm once it closes.”
Many people were aware of the reason Ling Jue Yun dared to openly use his Royal Grade Celestial Weapon in the Celestial Lord Temple. Apart from that, they were also certain Ling Jue Yun and Duan Ling Tian would not kill unnecessarily.
“The rewards from the first trial in the Celestial Lord Temple have been taken by them… What should we do next?” Xue Jing Yu looked around his surroundings. There was nothing in sight except for the ten halls and the endless darkness that surrounded them.
The other participants began to study their surroundings as well. When they failed to find anything, they decided to wait a little longer.
At this moment, they saw Ling Jue Yun move to stand next to Duan Ling Tian after obtaining the last defensive King Grade Celestial Weapon.
“It’s strange that both of them get along so peacefully. Do you think they came to an agreement before they entered the hall?”
“In my opinion, the reason Duan Ling Tian only took two King Grade Celestial Weapons has everything to do with Ling Jue Yun. They must have come to an agreement beforehand. That’s why Duan Ling Tian left one King Grade Celestial Weapon for Ling Jue Yun.”
“I agree. Based on Duan Ling Tian’s strength, he could have taken all three King Grade Celestial Weapons.”
“I expected them to fight, but it seems like that’s unlikely to happen for the time being.”
Xue Jing Yu and the other participants were rather disappointed when they saw Duan Ling Tian and Ling Jue Yun getting on harmoniously. The duo was like two dark clouds looming over them, making them feel gloomy. With the duo around, they knew they would not gain anything.
“It’s best if we can part ways with them. With them around, it’s impossible for us to gain anything.”
“Hopefully there’s a chance for us to split from them. Otherwise, we won’t be able to gain anything from the Celestial Lord Temple even if we manage to get out of the Southern Heaven Ancient Realm alive.”
Time passed by quickly as the participants engaged in a discussion.
“Based on my knowledge, apart from those two, there are seven other peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestials who have comprehended two profundities from a law!” a middle-aged man said.
“Seven? I only know of five,” a young man said.
“The genius from the Sima Clan, Sima Chun, is one of them. He has comprehended two profundities from the law of wind: the Wind Elemental Profundity and the Gale Profundity!”
“The Gale Profundity? It’s a movement profundity from the law of wind, right? Not only does the Gale Profundity increase one’s attack speed, but it also increases one’s movement speed!”
“The law of wind is related to speed. It allows one to move like the wind. Since Sima Chun has comprehended the law of wind’s Gale Profundity, it’d be impossible to defeat him, let alone kill him, unless there’s someone who has comprehended three profundities from a law among the participants who entered the lower realm of the Southern Heaven Ancient Realm!”
“That’s right! With the law of wind’s Wind Elemental Profundity and Gale Profundity, I think Sima Chun should have the fastest speed among all the participants. He can just flee if he can’t defeat his opponent!”
“He won’t suffer a loss since he’s incredibly fast.”
Duan Ling Tian’s expression turned strangely awkward when the others brought up Sima Chun during their discussion. It would be difficult to defeat, let alone kill, Sima Chun because of his speed?
The change in Duan Ling Tian’s expression did not escape Ling Jue Yun’s notice. He asked through Voice Transmission, “What’s wrong? Do you know Sima Chun?”
“No. I don’t know him. I only met him before I entered the Celestial Lord Temple,” Duan Ling Tian replied casually.
“Did you have a fight with him?” Ling Jue Yun asked.
Duan Ling Tian nodded slightly.
Ling Jue Yun said, “He has comprehended two profundities from the law of wind, including the Gale Profundity. If I were to fight him, I’d need to use my Emperor Grade Celestial Weapon or an artifact to kill him.” He paused for a moment before he asked, “Based on his speed, it’d be impossible for you to kill him unless you used the artifact in your body… Is he dead?”
Duan Ling Tian nodded again.
“Did you use an artifact to kill him?” Ling Jue Yun asked.
Duan Ling Tian shook his head slightly. When he saw Ling Jue Yun furrowing his brows in confusion, he said, “I didn’t use the artifact, but I used my Royal Grade Celestial Weapon.”
“It still wouldn’t be easy for you to kill him even if you used a purely offensive Royal Grade Celestial Weapon, right? The law you comprehended is the law of earth, speed isn’t your forte at all.” Ling Jue Yun was correct in his assessment.
Duan Ling Tian smiled. “It seems like you know me rather well. You’re right. I used other techniques as well…”
Ling Jue Yun’s assessment of Duan Ling Tian and Sima Chun’s battle was accurate. Duan Ling Tian was only able to kill Sima Chun because he had used the Gravitational Space Profundity along with a Royal Grade Celestial Weapon. Without the Gravitational Space Profundity, it would be impossible for Duan Ling Tian to kill Sima Chun, and Sima Chun would have gotten away. Although he was still far from comprehending the Gravitational Space Profundity to the rudimentary stage and it did not boost his strength significantly, it was still useful in instances like that.
“What techniques did you use?” Ling Jue Yun asked curiously.
Before Duan Ling Tian could reply, the ground beneath their feet suddenly disappeared. When they regained their footing, they discovered they were in a different place.
