Peerless Battle Spirit - Chapter 407
Chapter 407 - The Force of the Lightning Tribulation
“The Triple Door consists of nine hundred and sixty steps. However, you have reached the four hundredth step merely with your determination. There is no need to test your will any further.” An imperious voice exploded in Qin Nan’s mind.
Following this, a tremendous energy filled Qin Nan’s body like a swimming dragon.
In just the blink of an eye, Qin Nan’s devastated flesh instantly recovered, as he gradually regained his consciousness.
As soon as Qin Nan woke up, he immediately saw the white-haired old man standing proudly in his divine Sense, causing him to speak in a surprised tone, “Senior, you are..”
“The world knew me as the Triple-Stacked Martial Dominator!” The white-haired old man said with a stern look, “I was trying to rank up to the Martial Highness Realm, but unfortunately I was not in the world favor, thus I ended up passing away. While that was happening, I was granted the Force of Lightning Tribulation of a Martial Highness, which will be given to you today as a gift from me!”
Qin Nan was startled.
In his assumption, the number of steps he took was proportional to the benefits he will be granted. That being said, he had never expected the Triple-Stacked Martial Dominator to show himself and grant him the Force of Lightning Tribulation.
“Don’t worry about it. Just keep in mind not to be proud and impatient with your cultivation. Only those who work hard will succeed in the end!”
The white-haired old man let out a sigh before he reached out his finger. A red lightning was emitted from his fingertip and penetrated Qin Nan’s divine Sense. Following this, the old man’s figure vanished.
Before Qin Nan could say anything, a loud crash took place in his divine Sense.
It turned out to be the red lightning, which had suddenly turned unstable, causing forces of lightning to burst out from it.
Lightning was considered a pure and terrifying destructive force, not to mention that this was the Force of Lightning Tribulation of a Martial Highness. The moment it turned unstable, Qin Nan’s divine Sense began to tremble vigorously, as if it was going to be shattered.
“This force of lightning is extremely pure, allowing me to absorb it straight away. Previously, the evolution of the left eye of the divine God of Battle granted it a force of lightning too. Hopefully this lightning will be able to improve it further after being absorbed!”
Qin Nan mumbled to himself and withdrew his thoughts. He then unleashed his Six-Dragon-Lined Golden Nascent Soul. It immediately absorbed the force of lightning from the divine Sense into Qin Nan’s Dantian, where the tiny figure of his Nascent Soul opened its mouth and consumed the force, preventing it from resisting despite the tremendous force it contained.
Qin Nan exhaled a long breath and started cultivating under the second door.
Meanwhile, Ying Xunlong had achieved three hundred steps on the blue brick path of the Triple Door, while other cultivators managed to achieve beyond two hundred and sixty steps, breaking the previous record.
In other words, the people who had participated in the Triple Door all managed to endure the pressure.
That being said, Xue Wuheng—who was ranked ninth on the custodian ranking—came last. He had tried to move forward several times, but ended up giving up due to the outstanding suffering.
...Time swiftly passed. A month’s time was gone...
Within this month, the cultivators initially waiting at the shore had left the scene after realizing the fact that they no longer had the chance to enter the Triple Door. Meanwhile, the news regarding Qin Nan achieving four hundred steps was made known to the Qinglong Sacred Area, resulting in a significant earthquake as many were astonished by it.
Besides that, probably due to Qin Nan’s achievement, the disciples of the entire Qinglong Sacred Area began to work harder in their cultivation.
...Meanwhile, in the Triple Door...
Qin Nan’s eyes suddenly sprang open. His left eye was filled with an endless red gleam, as a discerning aura was emitted into his surroundings.
After spending a month absorbing, he had managed to thoroughly consume the Force of Lightning Tribulation, allowing his left eye of the divine God of Battle to experience a tremendous change.
Qin Nan could now sense that his left eye of the divine God of Battle was capable of firing endless rays of red lightning as a killing blow with a single thought.
The capabilities of the left eye of the divine God of Battle were no longer limited to observation, as its true power had finally been unveiled for the first time.
“Its power will most likely be outstanding. Now is not a good time to test it as there are too many people nearby.”
Qin Nan withheld the excitement in his heart. He then directed his focus onto the Six-Dragon-Lined Golden Nascent Soul.
“Let the Nascent Soul be baptized by the Lightning Tribulation of the Martial Highness Realm!”
Qin Nan uttered a loud roar.
Within the month, the Force of Lightning Tribulation had not only improved his left eye of the divine God of Battle, but also gave his Six-Dragon-Lined Golden Nascent Soul a baptism too.
Both the Inner Core and the Nascent Soul in the Martial Emperor Realm or the Martial Ancestor Realm respectively were required to be baptized by the Lightning Tribulation before undergoing the transformation when ranking up.
The change brought by the baptism of the Force of Lightning Tribulation was no doubt significant.
The cry of a dragon suddenly appeared as the Nascent Soul emitted a golden glow similar to a sun’s, which gradually transformed into a Dragon Line coiling around the Nascent Soul.
Besides that, the entire Nascent Soul emitted a faint sparkle of lightning, as its aura of lightning had turned incredibly powerful!
Qin Nan’s heart was immersed in joy.
Seven-Dragon-Lined Golden Nascent Soul;his current strength was equivalent to the seventh-layer Martial Ancestor Realm!
At that instant, the Blazing Sun Golden Armor Body Technique, the Art of Heart-Calming and Demon-Expelling, his will, and the Saber Intent within his body began to evolve in a rapid manner following the ranking up of the Nascent Soul.
Furthermore, they were all given the addition of a thunderous aura.
For example, when he executed the Blazing Sun Golden Armor Body Technique, it would emit a thunderous flame instead of the original flame!
The power of this thunderous flame was without a doubt more terrifying.
“With my current strength, it wouldn’t be a problem for me to face an eighth-layer Martial Ancestor Realm expert! However, this is not enough, as there are definitely lots of peak Martial Ancestor Realm experts participating in the Grand Competition of the Sixteen Mountains! Now with only two months left, I should try my very best to improve my strength!”
Qin Nan’s eyes glistened.
Under the second door appeared to be a great chance to go into seclusion due to the abundant Qi and its capability of boosting one’s comprehension.
Qin Nan immediately started multitasking, as he continued to comprehend the Path of Unconventional Pill-Refining while cultivating.
“Bilan, why do you still reject me despite my sincerity toward you?” On the huge island in the air, a young man with a demonic appearance stood in the palace while speaking in a thunderous tone.
“I have no time for romance as long as Qin Nan is still alive.” Jiang Bilan raised her eyebrows and said, “I will never forget the humiliation of that particular day.”
“This Qin Nan again!” The young man became enraged and snapped, “I’ve already sent my Second Brother to deal with him, while avenging my Third Brother at the same time!”
“Thanks, Brother Xiao.” Jiang Bilan spoke in a pitiful tone, “With the help of Second Brother Xiao and Brother Peng, I believe Qin Nan would not stand a chance even if he had three heads and six arms.”
The young man was no idiot as he said in a cold tone, “Bilan, I have no intention of wasting my time with you. I won’t say anything regarding the fact that you are trying to use me as a tool to kill Qin Nan. However, once Qin Nan is dead, you must date me. Otherwise, don’t blame me for showing no mercy.”
After saying this, the young man left the place with an imperious aura.
Jiang Bilan’s face turned slightly pale. For some reason, she felt vexed all of a sudden.
 TL Note: Three heads and six arms, A common idiom used to refer to someone who possesses extraordinary capabilities.
