Chapter 361: Primordial Battle Armor (1)
The eight peerless geniuses who cultivated ‘Primordial Star Conjecture’ in the Hunter Cosmic Sector mainly talked about evolution during their gathering.
“Senior Brother Gu Shan, is it really that difficult to increase one’s mental strength?” Kabuya asked. “I’m 155 years old, but my mental strength index has exceeded 5,000.”
“In the early stages of cultivation, there are all kinds of weak areas in your mind that allow you to improve by leaps and bounds.” Gu Shan sat there and smiled. “But the further you go, as your mind becomes closer to perfection, it becomes harder to improve. When I was 500 years old, my mental strength index was already 9123. This year, my mental strength index only reached 9985. It only increased by this much in 500 years.”
“It does get slower.” Moyu nodded. “After I broke through 9,000, my improvement became slower and slower.”
“Brother Gu Shan.” Redeye asked, “Although it’s said that you can only break through when your mental strength index reaches 10,000, with your mental strength index being 9985, it shouldn’t be a problem if you’re just a little short, right?”
“I’ve tried breaking through in the virtual world,” Gu Shan explained. “Although I can barely stir up Cosmic Force, when I mobilize Cosmic Force and turn my body into energy… I found myself unable to control it perfectly. My body collapsed and was destroyed.”
Xu Jingming listened.
If one failed to break through in the virtual world, it was natural that one didn’t dare to try it in reality.
“You have to try at least ten times in the virtual world, and you have to break through perfectly every time before you can attempt a breakthrough in reality.” Monina said seriously, “Once you fail in reality, that’s the end of you.”
They were all peerless geniuses who had hidden their edge for years. It would be a pity if they failed and died because of their ‘carelessness’ during the final breakthrough.
“Junior Brother Wu Ming.” Kabuya spoke.
“Of the eight of us, you’re seventh in terms of age, and Wu Ming is eighth. Why are you calling him ‘Junior Brother Wu Ming?'” Redeye teased.
“Everyone called me ‘Junior Sister’ previously. What’s wrong with me calling him ‘Junior Brother?’ He’s indeed younger than me.” Kabuya looked at Xu Jingming. “Junior Brother, you don’t mind, right?”
“Not at all. All of you are older than me,” Xu Jingming replied with a smile.
Kabuya said, “Junior Brother, the other seven of us spend most of our time in the Demon Vanquishing World. This is a virtual world that’s most helpful to one’s mental strength. Make sure to quickly head over to the Demon Vanquishing World. I can recommend you to the Demon Vanquishing Sect that I’m from.”
“It’s true that you have to enter early.” The ordinary-looking Senior Brother Metal Feather nodded. “Mental strength is the greatest obstacle stopping us from becoming Lv. 9 Origin lifeforms. I can also recommend you to my sect.”
“I’ve established a sect in the Demon Vanquishing World after being there for centuries,” he said. “I can recruit you directly.”
“I’ve established 12 sects,” Moyu said with a smile. “I can also recruit you. I definitely won’t mistreat you.”
Xu Jingming was stunned.
These seniors had been in the Demon Vanquishing World for so long, especially his eldest senior brother and sister. Their achievements were very high, and they were almost at Lv. 9.
“I suffered a setback in Demon Vanquishing World,” Redeye said. “I need to recuperate for at least five years! If you want to enter… let me know before you do. I’ll need your help with something.”
“You need my help?” Xu Jingming asked.
“It’s nothing.” Redeye said, “I’ll have a private chat with you when you plan on entering.”
“Alright.” Xu Jingming nodded. “I need to deal with some other matters. It might take me some time, but I’ll definitely make a trip to Demon Vanquishing World in half a year.”
“We’ll talk then.” Redeye raised his glass.
Xu Jingming also raised his glass.
He wasn’t sure if he could stay in the Demon Vanquishing World for long. He wanted to give it a try and experience it to see how effective the Demon Vanquishing World was in improving his mind! If the effects were average, he could try other methods.
“The Demon Vanquishing World is vast and boundless; you might not be able to travel from one place to another in your entire life. You can only choose your birthplace when setting up an account,” Monina said with a smile. “Since Redeye needs your help, you have to rip him off. He’s the richest among us!”
With his identity in reality, it didn’t matter if he hid his identity as a peripheral member of the Primordial Research Institute! He was only going with the flow. After all, the other peripheral members hid their identities, so he naturally hid his as well.
However, he was used to splurging when it came to daily expenses.
“Don’t worry, Junior Brother.” Redeye looked at Xu Jingming. “I won’t rip you off.”
“Senior Brother, you’re welcome.” Xu Jingming was also a little curious about what Redeye needed help with, but he was clearly unwilling to say it publicly.
Li Miaomiao coaxed her daughter to take an afternoon nap.
When her chubby daughter was finally fast asleep, Li Miaomiao quietly got up and walked out of the room. She walked alone at home and quickly arrived in front of the virtual chamber.
The door to the virtual chamber remained closed.
Jingming came out once on our daughter’s birthday and hasn’t gone offline since. It’s been a few months. According to what we agreed on, the exploration period for the mysterious land is 330 days. Today is the last day, so Jingming should be coming offline today, Li Miaomiao thought.
She didn’t know that Xu Jingming had been focusing on cultivation after being recruited by the Primordial Research Institute and receiving his first legacy. The moment he stopped cultivating, he had gone to meet up with his seven senior brothers and sisters.
Li Miaomiao walked to the living room and sat on the sofa alone. She tapped open the projection and watched many virtual livestreams on Earth discuss Xu Jingming. As the undisputed number one expert on Earth, many livestreams often talked about Xu Jingming.
