Chapter 1059: Countless Opportunities in the Celestial Sect of Wonders
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
If he wanted to submit the assignment, Lin Feng only had to conduct another Sect-Opening Ceremony in order to increase the total number of disciples to above a thousand. After that, he could just stay at the Heavenly Cosmic Ray World.
But with regards to the special reward of this main mission, Lin Feng had a lot of ideas. But whether his wishes could be fulfilled, it was still an unknown. He also wanted to take this opportunity to verify it.
Thus, Lin Feng did not rush to complete the mission to exchange for his reward.
Among the second-generation Successive Disciples, besides Tang Jun, Han Yang, Zhou Yuncong, Huang Zhenting, Yang Tie and Ying Luozha were all closing towards the Nascent Soul Stage right now.
Liu Xiafeng and Li Xingfei had already successfully reached the Advanced Aurous Core Stage, and they were also likely to overcome the Void Lightning Tribulations in the near future. Besides, Tan Yunqing, Zhuge Wanqiu, Zhao Huan, Sun Xueer, Ke Jing and Yan Wuwei were all also capable of doing so.
If Lin Feng did not enter the Heavenly Cosmic Ray World, he could even witness the rise of an exceptional talent in the third-generation disciples. With the help of the Heavenly Cosmic Ray World, this talent might be able to reach the Nascent Soul Stage in 50 years.
If there were no surprises, with the current structure, the number of disciples forming the Nascent Soul within 50 years in the sect was bound to be above 20.
As for the number of Aurous Core Stage disciples, there were bound to be more than a hundred of them if Lin Feng had 1000 disciples at the very least. There’s a huge possibility that this number could go beyond 2000 too.
Lin Feng was curious that if he attained a target that was beyond what the mission set for him, what kind of reward would he get?
Besides the junior disciples of the sect that managed to improve significantly, the other members of the sects had also witnessed their own progress too.
The Virtuous Zen Master managed to cultivate the Nirvana Land and reach the Golden Form Third Level, which was a good thing. He was now retreating to nurture his own Nirvana Land. And besides the Virtuous Zen Master, the North Sea Whale King had also formed the Undying Demon Soul recently.
There was another demon with the Undying Demon Soul in the world now, which left the Nine-Talons Condor King, Kui Cow King, Feilian King and even Jieyu envious of the North Sea Whale King.
The North Sea Whale King was already in the Advanced Demon Lord stage a long time ago. After he entered the Celestial Sect of Wonders, he cultivated quietly and protected the Mirror Lake dutifully.
Lin Feng also treated him well. He provided the North Sea Whale King with some resources in the Celestial Sect of Wonders that were useful for the North Sea Whale King’s cultivation. After Lin Feng returned from the Spirit Sea, he understood the Demonic Book of the Heavenly Tao and also gave his advice to the North Sea Whale King when he could.
Now that the North Sea Whale King had formed the Undying Demon Soul, he was naturally very grateful towards Lin Feng and even more loyal towards the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
He had entered the Celestial Sect of Wonders for only a little over a decade. Although he was already in the Advanced Demon Lord realm, it was unknown whether he could form the Undying Demon Soul if he was still in the North Polar Sea.
Even with a rare opportunity, no one knew how long it would take for him to successfully cultivate the Undying Demon Soul.
At times, a small difference could lead to a vastly different result. For a human trying to cultivate the Immortal Soul and a demon trying to cultivate the Undying Demon Soul, the difficulty level was much greater than any other obstacle faced before. “A world of difference” was an apt phrase to describe this.
With regards to his own talent and cultivation condition then, the North Sea Whale King was clear about them. Thus, he was even more grateful now.
After he was captured by Lin Feng then, he submitted and harbored no ill-intentions. He did what he was supposed to do, more because he was afraid of the powers of Lin Feng and the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
At the very start, the North Sea Whale King naturally felt humiliated and indignant. But now, those negative emotions had disappeared. What was left were only feelings of joy and gratitude.
In the heart of the North Sea Whale King, he was even feeling a little fortunate. He was actually thankful that he faced the ordeal in the past, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
The Nine-Talons Condor King was captured along with the North Sea Whale King. After he was brought back to the mountain, the two of them had a working relationship then. They were not very close yet. But after a period of time, the two of them became more and more familiar with each other.
Now that he saw his old pal become a Demonic Sage, the Nine-Talons Condor King was excited and envious at the same time.
All these years, he had also remained in the Celestial Sect of Wonders to cultivate diligently. Because he could flew fast, he had more opportunities to leave the sect for different taskings as compared to the North Sea Whale King.
At the very start, the Nine-Talons Condor King had the intention to escape too. But he managed to suppress that intention and he slowly got used to the life on Mount Kunlun.
For those who did their job diligently and never harbor ill-intentions, the Celestial Sect of Wonders often treated them well. The Nine-Talons Condor King and the North Sea Whale King were examples of this. They gained much from the Celestial Sect of Wonders, which had been very useful for their cultivations.
Now that he was in the peak of the Demon Lord realm, the Nine-Talons Condor King was only a step away from reaching the Undying Demon Soul Stage.
Thus, although he was envious of the achievement of his old pal, he was not that anxious either.
It’s just that he was a little incredulous about all that’s happened. When he was in the North Polar Sea, he never once thought that he would become a sect guardian. He also didn’t expect for this to be his destiny, which allowed him to gain greatly.
Especially when he found out that in the Celestial Sect of Wonders, apart from the times when he had to carry out his task, Lin Feng actually did not restrict his freedom.
He performed his tasks diligently and did not once complained. The junior disciples of the sect respected him very much and did not underestimate him either.
The Kui Cow King, Feilian King and even Jieyu had the same thought. Forgetting Jieyu, the Kui Cow King and Feilian King improved greatly all these years. Their cultivation and powers have increased significantly, much faster than before they entered the Celestial Sect of Wodners.
The Flying Snow Plumes that Lin Feng and Shi Tianhao won from the Heaven Lake Sect during the Spiritual Conference of Huanghai had also formed the Demon Soul too. They ascended from the Demonic Commander stage to the Demon Lord stage and were now a pair of Flying Snow Plume Lords.
The Flying Snow Plumes paired up together. The male was known as the Blizzard Plume while the female was known as the Heavenly Snow Plume. After they were lost to the Celestial Sect of Wonders, they entered the Wasteland Valley till now.
Come to think about it, they were afraid of being eaten by Shi Tianhao. Only after a while did their worries dissipate. Lin Feng and Shi Tianhao were actually using their feathers to help Shi Tianhao strengthen his body.
Shi Tianhao’s flesh was the strongest among those in the same level, only achieved through various reasons and factors. His flesh was almost impossible to replicate. In the Celestial Sect of Wonders, even Lin Feng’s Avatar of Ares, Xiao Yan and Yue Hongyan were unable to match up to Shi Tianhao’s flesh.
The strength of his flesh could be said to transcend the limits of a human body. Even powerful demons of the past were unable to challenge Shi Tianhao in terms of the strength of his flesh.
After he combined his flesh and Cosmic Form during the Advanced Nascent Soul Stage, his body was already very outstanding. And after Shi Tianhao formed the Immortal Soul, his body became even stronger.
However, although Shi Tianhao’s glory was difficult to replicate, he was still a good example to the budding disciples who could use him as a reference.
Since the sect had sufficient resources, the junior disciples were bound to be supplied with these resources in order to improve themselves.
Some resources, like the feathers of the Flying Snow Plumes, were renewable. They could help the disciples of the Celestial Sect of Wonders to cleanse their bodies and strengthen their flesh.
For example, Huang Zhenting of the Wasteland Valley went through such a similar experience when he was younger. When he first established his foundation, he went through such a cleansing before.
Besides, Tang Jun, Zhao Huan and the others also had such experiences too. This had a big impact on their current tough bodies.
“But come to think about it, those under the Huangtian Emperor are all a little…” The Blizzard Plume seemed to think of something and shook his head. Whereas his wife grinned, “Since they are of the same lineage, it’s nothing uncommon. During the Successive Disciples test, they will already have such a tendency. Furthermore, in the process of development, imperceptible influences are bound to have a great effect too.”
The Blizzard Plume nodded his head, “Let’s not talk about Huang Zhenting. He is much more mature now. But his disciple is like how he was when he was younger.”
The Blizzard Plume pursed his lips, “I feel as if Huang Zhenting is not reliable…”
“Oh? They seem to be back?” The gaze of the Blizzard Plume focused in the distance. A few long bows stretched across the sky and landed in the Wasteland Valley, “Remember that Huang Zhenting brought Shi Yang for the alternative residence of the Huangtian Emperor. They have gone for quite some time, but it seems like they have returned with some results.”
As the few bows landed in the valley, a tall youth in purple led the group. He was Huang Zhenting, who was now already matured. He looked courageous and steady. The look of childishness when he was young had already disappeared.
A few youths stood around him. They were the third-generation disciples of the Wasteland Valley. Although their cultivations were still low, they were still filled with energy.
But these youths had one similarity – their eyeballs kept on moving around. This revealed how active they were, but also revealed their discomfort.
In front of the elders, they were quieter and stood silently beside Huang Zhenting.
Behind Huang Zhenting, there was a male and a female. They looked like a perfect couple together.
That male wore a light smile on his face and he seemed very radiant. He had a dimple on his right cheek too. The female was tall and slim, and the contours on her face looked very sharp. Her nose bridge was high and one could tell that she was a very resilient person.
“Elder Gu, Elder Li, please, this way in. Master said that he was busy cultivating a magic item, thus he instructed me to bring the both of you in.” Huang Zhenting smiled as he clasped his hands towards this couple.
This couple were old acquaintances of Shi Tianhao, Gu Lei and Li Kuiyin. Now, although they were not old, they were already the elders of the Purple Cloud Sect.
Gu Lei laughed, “Talking about cultivating magic items, I am very impressed by the Celestial Sect of Wonders. The Nascent Soul Stage magic items that you carry around with you are even more than the Nascent Soul Stage disciples that I have.”
Li Kuiyin wanted to laugh as she heard this, “More accurately speaking, I think that your powers are even beyond the both of us added together.”
They shared a close relationship with Shi Tianhao, thus they were more comfortable in making jokes.
Huang Zhenting chuckled, “Sorry to have made a fool out of myself in front of the both of you.”
As they conversed along the way, they arrived at the Wasteland Valley finally. There was a huge stone pavilion there. As the bunch of them got closer to the pavilion, the gate of the pavilion had already opened. Shi Tianhao walked out from it and laughed, “It’s been a long time.”
All of them laughed as they greeted one another. After Shi Tianhao had met the couple, Huang Zhenting bowed and said respectfully, “Master, we have found a suitable place to be your alternative residence.”
