Chapter 349: A Shocking Progress
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
“Ever since your setback when you were forming the Spiritual Altar, I have also felt that it was a pity.” Lin Feng said, “This piece of Spiritual Replenishment Elixir can increase a cultivator’s Innate Ability and spirituality, hence it is very suitable for you.”
Wang Lin’s eyes brightened and he took the ceramic bottle that contained the elixir. His cultivation path was so tough because his Innate Ability was lacking.
With the same amount of time for cultivation, the spiritual energy that he absorbed was much lower than a normal person. Not to even mention Xiao Budian or Yang Qing, whose Innate Abilities were unbelievably high.
Xiao Budian’s one breath of spiritual energy could match up to Wang Lin’s half a day of cultivation. Such a gap cannot be closed just through hard work.
As he was excited, Wang Lin’s expression changed and he lifted his head to look at Lin Feng. He hesitated, “Master, the rest of the disciples…”
Lin Feng smiled slightly, “No worries, I have already derived the formula for this elixir as well as collected the required components to make it.”
With the Spiritual Enhancement Herb, along with other medicinal components, Lin Feng could produce the Spiritual Replenishment Elixir in large quantities.
He paused for a moment and smiled, “When I talk about increasing one’s Innate Ability, I mean that it can only work on those whose foundation was weak. The effects will only be obvious then. If I let your Youngest Junior and Fifth Junior to take it, there will not be any obvious effects.”
After hearing this, Wang Lin smiled brightly. He had never evaded the topic of his fellow sect members having higher Innate Abilities than him, especially when they joke about it. He would never mind it but faced the problem steadily, which was the appropriate method to solve the problem.
“Then I am relieved.” Wang Lin finished saying and took the Spiritual Replenishment Elixir out of the ceramic bottle without hesitation. He cracked his neck and swallowed the elixir.
After swallowing the elixir, Wang Lin sat on his knees and used his mana to digest the power of the elixir. He absorbed its power and guided the medicinal power to change his body.
Lin Feng stood at one side and watched quietly. His supernatural awareness was also observing the change in Wang Lin’s body. If anything happened, he could react in time too.
Under the effects of his supernatural awareness, Lin Feng could see Wang Lin’s entire body system clearly. There was a dim blue light that was flowing to his limbs and bones, spreading itself across Wang Lin’s body.
Meridian system, skeleton, flesh as well as all the acupoints were the destinations of the dim blue light.
Under the effects of this dim blue light, Wang Lin’s body experienced a tremendous change.
As the medicinal power flowed through his body, Wang Lin’s mana was also flowing. At this point, the effects of the medicinal power and Wang Lin’s change could be observed.
Initially, the mana in his body was very rigid. But now it became active and flexible.
The movement of his mana seemed to have transformed from a street road to an expressway. At the same time, there seemed to be more room for his mana to flow about.
His absorption of spiritual energy into his body for the conversion into mana seemed to occur more rapidly. Compared to his current state, Wang Lin’s previous rate of cultivation was lacking.
Lin Feng’s expression changed as he saw Wang Lin’s soul being nourished by the dim blue light.
Innate Ability did not just influence one’s body foundation. Anything related to cultivation was influenced by Innate Ability.
Besides body foundation, the activity of one’s soul and resilience all had to do with Innate Ability.
The more active one’s soul was, he would be more sensitive to the spiritual energy in the external world, which enabled him to absorb spiritual energy for cultivation more efficiently.
Under the nourishment of the dim blue light, Wang Lin’s soul became more active than previously. Lin Feng could feel that Wang Lin was more sensitive to the changes in the spiritual energy in the external world.
After the dim blue light had covered Wang Lin’s entire body and changed his body totally, it started to surge towards his Dantian Aura Sea.
After the light enumerated in detail into Wang Lin’s Aura Sea, Wang Lin’s Aura Sea started to shake vigorously.
As if a tsunami just happened, Wang Lin’s Aura Sea was experiencing huge waves within it and they splashed vigorously and intensely.
“Wang Lin, grab this opportunity.” Lin Feng nodded his head and his finger pointed to the Supreme Rock Spiritual Altar. Under the attack of the Purple Clouds, the Supreme Rock Spiritual Altar was smashed to pieces and was converted to a flashing white radiance. The radiance pierced through into Wang Lin’s spirit.
This white radiance moved upwards towards Wang Lin’s forehead, as if it was the movement of the Nine Heavens Silver River, into his Dantian Aura Sea.
After Wang Lin’s Dantian Aura Sea was infused with the white radiance, it became even more magnificent. In the heart of the Dantian Aura Sea, there was a huge swirl. And within that swirl itself, there was a jade-white stone altar rising gradually.
A huge amount of Wang Lin’s mana surged into the stone altar and dyed it purple instantaneously, converting it into a purplish-jade stone altar. Around the purplish-jade stone altar was the yellowish River Styx Primordial Water. Whereas the tip of the stone altar was covered in black fog.
This image was like the one when Wang Lin formed the Spiritual Altar on his own. But the difference was that a bright radiance was flashing inside the black haze. It was as if a breath of life was inside a mass of destruction.
The purplish-jade stone altar rose from the ground and moved upwards continually. Layer by layer, it started to take shape. This time, it was shaped into the Supreme Rock Spiritual Altar that originated from the Ancient Huanghai World. Wang Lin’s spiritual altar reached the seventh layer at an alarming rate and continued to form more layers.
Lin Feng creased his brows as he observed Wang Lin. He found out that after the purplish-jade spiritual altar reached above seven layers, there were signs of unstable tremors. When it was at the eighth layer, it was still okay. But as he continued to form the ninth layer, there were weird changes occurring.
After forming the ninth layer of the spiritual altar, Wang Lin’s purplish-jade spiritual altar started to shake vigorously. There were even cracks appearing at the foundation of it and it looked as if it was going to collapse.
As Lin Feng saw this, he did not hesitate. He quickly retrieved a part of the Heavens-Patching Vine and used his mana to convert the vine to a streak of jade-green radiance. It was then infused into Wang Lin’s body.
The jade-green radiance was converted to a thick vine in Wang Lin’s Aura Sea and engulfed the spiritual altar.
After it was engulfed by the vine, the cracked spiritual altar was made stable again. The original cracks were disappearing slowly too and the altar became flawless again.
Lin Feng and Wang Lin heaved a sigh of relief. Lin Feng moved his finger again and a piece of leaf from the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree landed on Wang Lin’s eyebrows.
The spiritual power of the leaf was absorbed by Wang Lin and landed on the top of the spiritual altar, completing it.
The purplish-jade spiritual altar was completed with a roar. The mana in Wang Lin’s body became more consolidated and powerful.
Inside his Aura Sea, there was a nine-layered purplish-jade spiritual altar. At the top of the altar, there were black clouds surrounding it, making it seem like a forbidden zone. There was a cold and destructive aura emanating from it.
“Although it is not the old school ten-layered supreme spiritual altar, it has its own special characteristics too.” Lin Feng nodded his head in satisfaction, before observing that Wang Lin’s mana was surging vigorously again.
The destructive gas at the top of the spiritual altar descended and gathered towards the center of the altar. It wanted to form the crucible too.
As Lin Feng saw this, he broke out in laughter, “Wang Lin, it seems that you have been holding in too much previously!”
With regards to this, not only did Lin Feng not stop him, he even pointed his finger towards Wang Lin’s brows and used his mana to help him.
Previously, Wang Lin had accumulated more than enough power during the beginner stage of the Foundation Establishment Stage, but he was stuck at the stage of forming the spiritual altar and could not advance.
However, the present Wang Lin unleashed everything that he had been holding in.
In one shot, he broke through all barriers ahead of him.
Under the support of Lin Feng’s mana, Wang Lin became even more powerful. A cold and black four-tiered crucible was erected on the spiritual altar gradually. As Wang Lin injected more and more of his mana into it, the crucible began to take its shape.
During this process, something interesting happened, which caught Lin Feng’s eye.
During the formation of Wang Lin’s crucible, a great portion of it was cold and black. But at some moments, it would be converted to a jade-white state, exuding warmth and comfort. After, that it would be converted back to its pitch-dark state, exuding a cruel and cold aura.
It alternated between both states continually. During this conversion process, Wang Lin’s crucible became more and more consolidated and it looked as if it was going to be completed soon.
As Lin Feng saw this, he nodded his head in satisfaction, “Yes, the efforts before were not wasted. Besides the destructive power concept, Wang Lin’s understanding of the power concept of life has also become deeper.”
He laughed, “I shall give you more support.” As he finished saying, he retrieved the Dual Polarity Divine Flower that he won from the wager at the spiritual conference.
The Dual Polarity Divine Flower was a spiritual flower that was a specialty from the Snow Mountains. It contained the power concepts of Ice, Fire and Life amongst many others. It could enable the most eloquent communication between Heaven and Earth, but it only blooms once in every 3600 years.
To Wang Lin, the Ice and Fire power concepts had little use. The main point was in the aura of life it contained and the way of the combination of two extremes.
Lin Feng took out a petal from the flower and allowed it to enter Wang Lin’s body. It was converted into a streak of pink radiance and it landed on the crucible.
As if it was adding fuel to a flame, the black gas that was surrounding Wang Lin’s crucible let out a huge roar and surged even more powerfully.
Life and Death, Creation and Destruction. There was a continuous reversal of two extreme powers.
After a long wait, Wang Lin’s crucible was finally completed. It was not black or white, but was purple like the spiritual altar. The crucible contained countless runes, which revealed the secrets to destiny.
Whereas there was black fog looming inside the crucible, as if they were dancing flames. Inside the black fog, there was a white light spot appearing on and off. It looked like a firefly. Although its radiance was small, it was extremely eye-catching.
Wang Lin only opened his eyes at this point. His eyes were flashing with a hint of cold, but beneath the cool exterior, it was filled with warmth. His pitch-black pupils made it unfathomable.
He faced Lin Feng and bowed towards him. He was silent but everything was said in the silence.
Lin Feng lifted his palms and dragged him off the ground. He laughed, “Cultivate well. With your previous accumulation, it will not be difficult to reach the Aurous Core Stage.”
“I have the idea and I will not let you down, Master.” After finished saying, Wang Lin sat on his knees and his mana started to revolve again.
He had really held it in previously and was unwilling to waste any more time.
Lin Feng laughed and a streak of Purple Clouds engulfed Wang Lin. His formation of the Aurous Core this time around might be easier, but not exactly too quick. Wang Lin had prepared for this moment for very long.
Currently, it seemed like there would be some shocking progress.
“Oh?” Lin Feng was looking over Wang Lin, but he thought of something suddenly, “Is it Xiao Budian and Tuntun? What did these two troublemakers bring back to the mountain again?”
