Chapter 1022 – The Treasure Fishing Rod
…Meanwhile, inside a mysterious forbidden area of the Heaven-Saber Sect…
“Asshole!” The Thousand Light Saber Monarch said with a cold gaze, “That Dragon Emperor attacked immediately without showing any respect, how unacceptable!”
Despite being furious, there was nothing else he could do.
The Dragon Emperor’s strength was immeasurable, and both the Nine-Tailed Monarch Beast and the Demonic Qilin Monarch Beast were peak Martial Monarch Realm experts as well, not to mention the Godly Beast Forbidden Area of the half-God region which was supporting the Dragon Emperor Clan. If he were to make his move, the Heaven-Saber Sect would suffer a great loss.
“Master, I believe we don’t need to be too worried about it. The other factions will be looking for Qin Nan too, thus if he really has found all the pieces of the treasure left by the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch, we can easily receive the news.” Dao Qianzhong said.
“Mm, you’re right. Spread my words, make Qin Nan the third-ranked golden grade enemy of our sect, and send three of the eighteen saber guards after him.”
“Affirmative, master.” Dao Qianzhong brought his fists together, “By the way, master, I will need a few pieces of the Ancient Starcloud Stones to improve the ancient sabers.”
“Sure.” The Thousand Light Saber Monarch nodded.
Following this, Dao Qianzhong left the forbidden area. In the end, he decided not to reveal the thoughts that had crossed his mind.
…Meanwhile, at the Sect Leader’s Hall in the Dark Feather Palace…
“Damn it, father, Qin Nan and the people of the Dragon Emperor Clan acted as if the Dragon Emperor Clan was the ruler of the entire Middle Continent!” Huo Wulong snapped.
A sudden slap left Huo Wulong stunned in place.
He could easily count the number of times his father had slapped him in the past with a single hand.
“Stop the bullshit, I’ve yet to punish you for colluding with the genius of the God Ranking to infiltrate the Half-God Tomb without my permission! Do you really think you can do whatever you want just because I’m your father?” Huo Ling’s gaze coldened.
“Fa…father, I’m sorry. I won’t do it again.” Huo Wulong immediately apologized.
Martial Monarch Huo Ling’s expression calmed gradually as he spoke, “Make your way to the Shadow Pagoda and gather information about the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch’s past. It’s urgent to me!”
In addition to the Heaven-Saber Sect and the Dark Feather Palace…
As the elders returned to their factions, they immediately reported the incident to the Martial Monarchs, prompting them to organize their plans.
A while later, the incident that had taken place at the Half-God Tomb was spread among the factions, which astounded the disciples.
“What? Qin Nan defeated eleven geniuses on his own, including a genius of the God Ranking, Dao Qianzhong, and Hua Dichen?”
“I’m not lying! It’s the truth! However, it is said that Qin Nan possessed some rare artifact that he relied on to easily challenge those with a higher cultivation!”
“Humph, so he was relying on an artifact, which means his strength should be ordinary.”
“Maybe his own strength isn’t too outstanding, but what he has achieved is still very impressive!”
“Tsk tsk, the succession of the half-Martial God, the treasure left by the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch, and the mysterious rare artifact. Don’t forget that Qin Nan has also altered his destiny recently, causing his ranking to improve by over seven hundred!”
“This Qin Nan is nothing simple!”
Some were impressed while many wore disdainful expressions. That being said, most of their eyes were filled with greed.
However, because of the incident, Qin Nan’s name was widely known among the geniuses and elders of various factions.
…Meanwhile, at the Human Peak of the Dragon Emperor Clan…
Qin Nan sat inside the Dao Origin Crystal with a calm appearance.
Previously, as the entire Dragon Emperor Clan was immersed in a great joy, he had gone up to Hua Dichen, Song Dong, and the others. However, to his surprise, they still held a great hatred toward him, which Qin Nan totally ignored with a smile.
Following this, he went to the mysterious place inside the Dragon Emperor Clan to have a discussion with the three Monarch Beasts.
The discussion was simple. It went without saying that every faction would send someone to keep an eye on Qin Nan, thus if he had managed to retrieve the treasure of the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch, he had to be extra careful all the time.
“I’ve finally entered the limelight after spending a significant amount of time in the Middle Continent!” Qin Nan wore a grin as he took out the box.
It was time to see what the third piece of treasure was.
A stream of white mist floated out from the box, which took on the appearance of the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch.
“Cough cough, it’s my fault for setting you up, so please don’t take it seriously.” The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch uttered a cough and swiftly changed the topic as he spoke in a satisfied tone, “Come and take a look, this is something that I’m really proud of, which will surely give you a great scare!”
Qin Nan glanced at him before he continued to open the box. Inside it lay a section of green bamboo the size of a palm, with a magical reflection on its surface. It did not seem like something fascinating.
“What is this?”
Qin Nan picked up the bamboo.
To his surprise, as he picked up the bamboo, it emitted a glow while extending forward in a segmented manner. Each segment was thinner than the previous part, which halted as it reached three-zhang long.
“A dog-hitting stick!” The two hounds screamed, “Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch, are you really that bored that you crafted something like this?”
“Mm, I agree that it’s a dog-hitting stick too!” Xiao Hong exclaimed as the other skeletons burst out laughing.
After what they had been through, their relationship with the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch had grown closer too.
“What do you mean a dog-hitting stick? Humph.” The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch blushed as he snapped, “A bunch of idiots, this is a fishing rod! Do you know what a fishing rod is?”
“A fishing rod?” The two hounds, one mouse, and Xiao Hong were stunned.
Even Qin Nan was dumbfounded.
“Err, pardon me, I said the wrong name. It’s the Treasure Fishing Rod. It has many uses, but in simple words, you can easily hook any artifact within a hundred li with it, including God Weapons. The God Weapons won’t even know it, and their owners will not be alerted for an hour!” The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch blew at his mustache while placing his hands behind himself, acting like he were a wise man.
“Treasure Fishing Rod? Able to hook God Weapons without alerting them and their owners?”
The two hounds, one mouse, and Xiao Hong were left speechless.
Qin Nan was astonished as well.
As everyone knew, the most difficult part about robbing someone’s artifact was not its owner, but the artifact itself, as most of them would have their own intelligence. Therefore, once it realized that someone was trying to rob them, they would resist and notify their owner at the same time.
However, it seemed like the Treasure Fishing Rob had overcome the problem.
“Well, I don’t expect you to understand my explanation. Let’s have a try instead! There is an artifact inside the Ten Thousand Beast Garden known as the Dragon Emperor’s Heart. Let’s claim its possession today!” The Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch said as he tried to grab the Treasure Fishing Rod.
Qin Nan instantly collected his thoughts. It would be a great disaster to him if he let the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch continue that foolish act.
“I’ll have a go!”
Qin Nan pondered before he raised the Treasure Fishing Rod and glanced in the direction of the Skyhowl Wolf Peak with excitement.
If the Treasure Fishing Rod was as powerful as the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch said…
Didn’t that mean he could easily rob the Sect-Protecting Godly Saber of the Heaven-Saber Sect or the heirloom artifacts of the other factions?
