War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens

Chapter 3349: The Supreme Powerhouses’ Game

“Purgatory?” Ji Ning Yun widened her eyes in shock. She did not expect Duan Ling Tian would want to go to such a place.

The place called purgatory would only appear once the passages between the Devata Realm and the Realms of Gods were closed. It would appear once every 10,000 years, and it would stay open for 1,000 years. Currently, the purgatory had been open for about 200 years now.

The passages to the Realms of Gods were close due to the collisions between the Realms of Gods. In turn, the collisions would form what was called a realm battlefield. The realm battlefield was a dangerous place even for those who were from the Realms of Gods. The entrance to the realm battlefield could only be found in Realms of Gods. Therefore, those from the Devata Realms would not be able to enter the realm battlefield unless they could go to a Realm of God.

Rumor had it that the collision of the Realms of Gods and the realm battlefield were all created by supreme powerhouses. The challenges and the fortuitous encounters in the realm battlefield were said to be intentionally left behind by supreme powerhouses as well. The realm battlefield was a source of fun for many who entered the battlefield.

Apart from that, when the realm battlefield appeared, two places would appear in the Devata Realms: the Purgatory Battlefield and the Nine Serenities Battlefield.

The Purgatory Battlefield was only open to Celestial Lords. In the Purgatory Field, there were many secret zones. One could stumble upon them or one could exchange for the chance to enter the secret zones with military merit.

On the other hand, the Nine Serenities Battlefield was only open to Celestial Emperors. Many Celestial Emperors would enter the battlefield to train themselves and increase their strength. The battlefield was also a good place for those titled Celestial Emperors who wanted to make their names known across the various Devata Realms.

Whether it was the Purgatory Battlefield or the Nine Serenities Battlefield, one would be able to earn military merits there. With enough military merits, one could be given a military rank as well. The ranks were given according to the merits one had accumulated. Needless to say, one’s ranks would continue to rise as one’s military merits grew. Those with high ranks would be given a chance to enter the secret zones every once in a while.

The World Cleansing Divine Water had told Duan Ling Tian that similar to the realm battlefield in the Realms of Gods, both the Purgatory Battlefield and the Nine Serenities Battlefield in the Devata Realms were the works of supreme powerhouses as well. The battlefields were just a game and a way for them to amuse themselves.

According to the World Cleansing Divine Water, the things that they left on the battlefields that everyone regarded as treasures were nothing but trash to them. They found it amusing to watch people fight and kill over things they considered trash. Another way the supreme powerhouses amused themselves was to place bets on those who entered the battlefields.

In the beginning, Duan Ling Tian felt repulsed after listening to the World Cleansing Divine Water’s words. After all, there was no one who liked being treated as a pawn or puppet. However, as time passed, he grew more understanding. He thought, perhaps, when he became a supreme powerhouse, he might grow bored enough to play such games as well. After all, supreme powerhouses were unrivaled; celestials and gods were nothing to them.

The World Cleansing Divine Water had also said to him that if he disliked being someone’s pawn, the only way was to become stronger.

Reality was cruel, and it treated all living creatures without dignity. The only way to rise above it was to become the strongest.

When Ji Ning Yun regained her senses, she solemnly asked, “You’re really determined to go to the Purgatory Battlefield? Although there are many treasures and fortuitous encounters there that are much more valuable than anything that can be found in heaven-grade forces or Heavenly Emperors’ forces, it comes with very high risks as well.”

“There’s only one way to gain military merits in the Purgatory Battlefield: killing. Although you’re very strong, to the extent that you’re capable of injuring a titled Celestial Emperor from the Heavenly Pool Palace, I’m sure that whatever technique you used to achieve that isn’t something you can use often. Moreover, there are many titled Celestial Lords who are as powerful as Celestial Emperors who died after entering the battlefield as well. In fact, it’s common for titled Celestial Lords to group together to kill those incredibly powerful titled Celestial Lords. It’s better for you to go to the Heavenly Palace in the Solitary Destructive Heaven to wait for Feng Qing Yang’s return if you’re not willing to stay in the dragon clan. I’m sure he’ll help train you. At that time, your strength will improve tremendously,” Ji Ning Yun said, clearly trying to dissuade Duan Ling Tian from going to the Purgatory Battlefield.

“Senior, say no more.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head. “I’ve made up my mind.”...

Similar to Ji Ning Yun, Little Black, Little White, and Little Gold were also shocked by Duan Ling Tian’s decision. Although they knew about the Purgatory Battlefield, it had never crossed their minds to enter it since they knew it was a highly dangerous place. As Ji Ning Yun said, it was a place where even titled Celestial Lords with strength comparable to Celestial Emperor could die.

Ji Ning Yun did not give up and continued to say, “Although you have the Ning Dragons, you won’t be able to summon them in there since they’re at the level of a Celestial Emperor. The rules set by the supreme powerhouses won’t allow that.”

“I don’t plan to rely on them.” Duan Ling Tian smiled faintly. He had already learned about the things that Ji Ning Yun told him from the World Cleansing Divine Water. Hence, he was not surprised when Ji Ning Yun told him that he would not be able to summon the Ning Dragons on the Purgatory Battlefield. However, the World Cleansing Divine Water had also told him that he would be able to borrow the power of the Five Divine Elements on the battlefield; the Five Divine Elements would not be affected. With this, he had nothing to worry about.

“Brother Ling Tian, I want to go with you!” Little Gold said solemnly, all traces of her usual playfulness were gone.

Little White chimed in, “Brother Ling Tian, I’ll come with you as well!”

“Me too,” Little Black, who was usually taciturn, said.

Upon hearing these words, Ji Ning Yun said with a hint of reproach, “What are all of you saying? Do you know what a dangerous place the Purgatory Battlefield is?” At this moment, she really regretted letting Little Black and Little White leave the dragon clan’s estate. If she had known the person the duo was searching for was a lunatic who wanted to increase his strength by going to the Purgatory Battlefield, she would not have allowed them to look for him.

In the long history of the dragon clan, there were many Nine-Clawed Divine Dragons who were titled Celestial Lords entering the Purgatory Battlefield and dying there. A few of Ji Ning Yun’s childhood friends were among these people. For this reason, she was incredibly averse to the Purgatory Battlefield. She had never entered it and did not want Little Black and Little White to enter it. After all, Little Black and Little White were the future of the dragon clan. Both of them had high chances of becoming Ten-Clawed Divine Dragons.

Nevertheless, Ji Ning Yun knew if she forcefully stopped them from going to the Purgatory Battlefield, she would alienate them. Therefore, she said to Duan Ling Tian through Voice Transmission, “Duan Ling Tian, I really think you shouldn’t go to the Purgatory Battlefield unless you have constant access to the power that helped you to injure the titled Celestial Emperor from the Heavenly Pool Palace earlier. Otherwise, there’s no way you’d be able to survive there. In the past, I had two friends who were a couple. Their strength was comparable to a titled Celestial Emperor when they joined forces. Even then, they died there.”

Ji Ning Yun continued to say through Voice Transmission, “The titled Celestial Lords who group up to target outstanding titled Celestial Lords aren’t the only danger there. The challenges there are deadly as well. If you’re really determined to go there, I hope you’d at least dissuade the three little ones from following you. Little Gold is highly cherished by the Blood Moon Ridge. If they find out she obtained the idea of entering the Purgatory Battlefield when I brought her out, it’d be difficult for me and my husband to provide them with a satisfactory explanation. As for Little Black and Little White, it’s highly likely that they’ll become Ten-Clawed Divine Dragons; they can’t take such risks.”

“Senior, the Purgatory Battlefield is an opportunity for me to improve, and it’s also an opportunity for Little Black, Little White, and Little Gold,” Duan Ling Tian replied. Naturally, he could not tell Ji Ning Yun that he had the Five Divine Elements and had constant access to the power he used to injure Lei Ying, the Merciless Celestial Emperor. He was confident he would be able to protect the three little ones so he did not intend to stop them from following him if that was what they wished.

“What if I beg you?” Ji Ning Yun said solemnly, “You can be considered to owe my husband a life-saving debt. Please return the favor by dissuading the three little ones from following you.”

Upon hearing Ji Ning Yun’s words, Duan Ling Tian felt pressured. However, he had no intention of yielding. In the end, he could reply with a bitter smile, “Since you’re so insistent, I can only do as you wish, senior. Don’t worry, I’ll speak to them…”

Duan Ling Tian did not expect Ji Ning Yun to use her husband’s life-saving grace to make him stop the three little ones from following him to the Purgatory Battlefield. Since she had brought the matter up, there was nothing he could do but acquiesce to her request.
