King Qian who was standing in the lead and the old men standing behind him did not seem surprised by Lin Dong's breakthrough. Based on their calm expressions, it seemed like they had long known this would happen.
Lin Dong could have broken through to the Saint Stage a few months ago. He had only held back because of his battle with Duan Ling Tian today.
If he had broken through to the Saint Stage, put aside the fact that Duan Ling Tian might not accept his challenge, people might not find it respectable even if he had won. They might look down on him and say he was bullying the weak.
King Qian and the two old men knew about this so they were not surprised. However, everyone, including Situ Ming, Ye Feng, and Ye Mu Bai, was unaware of this so they were extremely surprised.
Earlier, when they saw Duan Ling Tian's heaven-defying speed, their expressions had turned extremely glum because they did not think Lin Dong would be able to kill Duan Ling Tian. However, what just happened had turned the tide again. They felt as though they had risen to Heaven from h.e.l.l.
Lin Dong had made a breakthrough to the Saint Stage!
Naturally, they knew what this meant.
"Duan Ling Tian, you're going to die!" When three of them looked at Duan Ling Tian, a terrifyingly sinister look could be seen in their eyes.
Everyone else was in shock for a long time when they saw Lin Dong breaking through to the Saint Stage. When they regained their senses, they rubbed their eyes as though they were trying to confirm they did not see wrongly.
However, the startling scene before them seemed to prove their visions were fine, and they did not see wrongly.
Lin Dong had indeed broken through to the Saint Stage!
Making a breakthrough before a battle was not rare in the Dao Martial Saint Land. However, making a breakthrough during a battle was indeed rare even in the Dao Martial Saint Land.
"Lin Dong… actually made a breakthrough?"
"To think I was laughing at him for trying so frantically at the last minute. It didn't cross my mind that he would really make a breakthrough in just a blink of an eye!"
"Based on the speed Duan Ling Tian had demonstrated, I thought he had gained the upper hand and would be able to turn the tide of the battle and kill Lin Dong… I really didn't think Lin Dong would turn the situation around and break through to the Saint Stage at the critical moment."
"Although Duan Ling Tian's speed is fast, and it's practically invincible among everyone below the Saint Stage, he's still lacking compared to the speed of a Saint Stage powerhouse!"
"Of course! Once a Saint Rudiment Stage Martial or Dao Cultivator makes a breakthrough to the Saint Stage, the True Energy inside their body would transform into True Origin… True Energy can't be compared to True Origin at all. After the True Energy has turned into True Origin, the True Energy Consolidated Weapon, Consolidated Beast, and Consolidated Territory would also turn into the True Origin Consolidated Weapon, Consolidated Beast, and Consolidated Territory!"
"Duan Ling Tian's really unlucky!"
"That's right! He's really unlucky! He must have been really confident about his speed when he accepted Lin Dong's Death Duel and think he would be able to kill him… However, it probably didn't occur to him that Lin Dong would make a breakthrough to the Saint Stage during the critical moment!"
The group of spectators' attention was focused on Lin Dong as they discussed among themselves.
Based on their words, one could tell they were shocked by Lin Dong's breakthrough, and they pitied Duan Ling Tian. In their opinion, Duan Ling Tian who had originally gained the upper hand would definitely be killed by Lin Dong who had broken through to the Saint Stage.
"How's this possible? Impossible!" Colors drained from Situ Hang's face. His face was pale as though they had been completely drained of blood.
Previously, he thought his savior, Duan Ling Tian, would be able to kill Lin Dong when he witnessed his speed that was far superior to Lin Dong. He was filled with joy. However, he did not expect the situation would turn around and Lin Dong would break through to the Saint Stage so quickly!
This was undoubtedly a misfortune for Duan Ling Tian.
Situ Hao and Situ Hou were shocked speechless. They could only stare at Lin Dong whose bearing had changed now that he had broken through to the Saint Stage.
"He has broken through to the Saint Stage?" The expression on Bai Li Hong and the others' faces turned grave immediately.
Their worries disappeared when they remembered the sword Duan Ling Tian had used to kill the Supreme Elder of Moon Illumination Sect. However, they became worried again when they thought about how the sword was going to be revealed in front of everyone if he took it out.
They believed if the sword was revealed, Duan Ling Tian would be in a terrible situation. Let alone the top powerhouses from Windfall Nation, even the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion's powerhouses would be interested in it.
After Lin Dong made a breakthrough to the Saint Stage, his bearing had changed greatly. He looked down on Duan Ling Tian arrogantly as he said coldly, "Duan Ling Tian, you're really unlucky to meet me when I unexpectedly break through to the Saint Stage. I most likely wouldn't be your opponent when it comes to speed if I didn't break through to the Saint Stage. Now that I've made a breakthrough, you're nothing but an ant that I can trample on as I like!"
"Unexpectedly break through to the Saint Stage?" Duan Ling Tian smirked when he saw the arrogant and domineering Lin Dong. "I don't think it's 'unexpected'. In fact, it's probably been planned beforehand, right?"
Duan Ling Tian had noticed Lin Dong's breakthrough to the Saint Stage did not surprise King Qian and the two old men even though it had surprised almost everyone, including Situ Ming and Ye Feng. It was as though they had already expected something like that to happen.
Due to this reason, he was certain Lin Dong could have broken through to the Saint Stage a long time ago, but he had suppressed his cultivation base just so he could have a breakthrough at this moment.
"Planned beforehand?" Lin Dong's heart jolted when he heard Duan Ling Tian's words. It was apparent he did not expect Duan Ling Tian to discover this. Naturally, he did not reveal the shock he felt on his face. His expression was indifferent as he said, "You can say whatever you want. You'll die today no matter what!"
The moment Lin Dong's words left his mouth, the whirlpools within a 100-meter radius began to increase their speed again. Their colors had also turned darker.
Although the True Origin Consolidated Territory had the same concept as the True Energy Consolidated Territory, due to the difference in their intrinsic qualities, the force of Lin Dong's Territory now was far superior to his former Territory.
At the same time, the True Origin around Lin Dong's body began to surge. One could even see it.
"Lin Dong, if I'm not mistaken, King Qian must have promised you something in exchange for you coming from the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion to kill me, right? Did he also ask you to give him my Spatial Ring after I die?" Duan Ling Tian asked as he looked at Lin Dong.
The moment Duan Ling Tian's words left his mouth, most of the people present on the scene s.h.i.+fted their attention to King Qian.
In fact, most people thought Lin Dong had come to challenge Duan Ling Tian on his own initiative. They were baffled why the strongest powerhouse on the Heaven Ranking would do this.
However, after they heard Duan Ling Tian's words, it seemed as though he had answered the question in their minds.
Lin Dong had been invited by King Qian! Moreover, he wanted Duan Ling Tian's Spatial Ring!
"King Qian wants Duan Ling Tian's Spatial Ring? Could there be some kind of treasure in his ring?"
"Isn't this obvious? If there's no treasure in Duan Ling Tian's Spatial Ring, why would he invite Lin Dong who's from the Southern Ridge Yuan Mansion to Windfall Nation to issue a Death Duel?"
"The reward he offered Lin Dong must be hefty. The treasure in Duan Ling Tian's Spatial Ring must be really valuable for him spend so much!"
"It must be because King Qian knows about Duan Ling Tian's Top Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic, and he wants it to himself. However, he could not find any way other than to invite Lin Dong here. Duan Ling Tian used to be the Interim Advisor of Situ Clan after all. And to a certain extent, he could be considered as being part of King Rong's estate. Naturally, he wouldn't dare to recklessly make a move on a powerhouse from King Rong's estate!"
"Everything makes sense now. King Qian wants Duan Ling Tian's Saint Grade Martial Tactic. Due to this reason, he invited Lin Dong over to issue a Death Duel to Duan Ling Tian. After killing Duan Ling Tian, Lin Dong would give the Spatial Ring to him."
The group of spectators discussed among themselves. All of them thought King Qian had his eyes on the Top Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic in Duan Ling Tian's hand.
"Hurmph!" King Rong's gaze turned slightly colder. He shared the same thoughts with the people.
However, when he recalled Lin Dong had already broken through to the Saint Stage, and Duan Ling Tian would most likely die, he continued thinking about how he could use Duan Ling Tian's death to his advantage by using Lady Feng from Drift Blaze Sect so that Zi Yun, the Sect Leader of Drift Blaze Sect, would intervene in this matter.
When the group of people regained their senses, their eyes were filled with pity when they looked at Duan Ling Tian.
'A man's wealth brings his ruin by causing greed in others!' This saying described Duan Ling Tian's situation perfectly.
King Qian sneered. A Top Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic?
Previously, he was completely unaware Duan Ling Tian owned such a Saint Grade Martial Tactic.
The thing he wanted was far more valuable than the Top Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic. Only Ye Feng and the two old men from King Qian's estate knew about this.
There was another person who knew this, and it was none other than Duan Ling Tian.
Although Duan Ling Tian had guessed correctly, Lin Dong had no intention of responding to his question. Instead, he snorted before he said coldly, "Humph! Duan Ling Tian, things have already developed to this stage, is there any use in saying this? No matter how quick your tongue is, you're still going to die today!"
"Lin Dong, don't tell me that just like these people, you really think all King Qian wants from me is the Top Human Rank Saint Grade Martial Tactic?" Duan Ling Tian looked at Lin Dong calmly with a smile on his face. It was as though he was unaware of the precarious situation he was in.
