Chapter 495: The Goal is About to be Fulfilled
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The nine streaks of rainbow radiance were injected into the nine holes of Shi Tianhao’s Aurous Core.
These radiances sealed the holes of Shi Tianhao’s Nine-Holed Aurous Core, but did not cover them entirely. They only covered them temporarily. Under the effect of the Heavens-Patching Vine and the Kun Peng blood, the rest of the spiritual powers were injected into the Aurous Core.
Gradually, Shi Tianhao’s Aurous Core seemed to be coated with a layer of film. As the radiance shone, the nine holes of the Aurous Core glowed.
Lin Feng saw that Shi Tianhao’s condition was slowly stabilizing and heaved a sigh of relief, “The first step is completed.”
Following that, Xiao Budian had to focus on cultivating and absorbing these spiritual powers, in order to prepare for the last metamorphosis.
This was bound to be a long process and could not be rushed. Furthermore, Shi Tianhao’s patience was also needed to cultivate these spiritual powers.
The last metamorphosis would come along with the Tribulations of the Yin Wind. Once the tribulations were surpassed, Shi Tianhao’s Aurous Core would not only become perfect, his powers would increase too.
Once this step was achieved, his future path to the Nascent Soul would be smoother.
With regards to Shi Tianhao forming the Nascent Soul, Lin Feng was quite excited. According to the system, out of the 4 talent statistics, the Innate Ability took effect before the Nascent Soul Stage, especially during the Qi Cultivation and Foundation Establishment Stage. It was definitely the talent statistic that affected the cultivator the most.
The most key point was that during the Foundation Establishment Stage, the level of the Innate Ability would affect the spiritual altar and crucible grade to a large extent. And the crucible grade would affect the future formation of the Aurous Core.
Forming the purple pill and red pill was still fine. If it were the green or yellow pill, then the Nascent Soul Stage would be impossible to reach.
After forming the Aurous Core, the influence of the Innate Ability would dwindle. To a Nascent Soul Stage cultivator, the effect of the Innate Ability would become negligible to his cultivation.
But there was an exception.
That was for someone who had a full score on his Innate Ability. Even if he reached the Immortal Soul Stage and rebirthed into a new person, there was still an impact caused by his Innate Ability.
Lin Feng was excited. Unless the system was spouting gibberish, then there might be some unexpected rewards when Shi Tianhao formed the Nascent Soul.
Of course, to form the Nascent Soul, he had to complete this Aurous Core path first. There was no room for any mistakes.
Shi Tianhao cultivated the different magic treasures in the Kun Peng blood. It was a very tiresome process. Even though his powers were greater than most, it was still very tiring for him after a while.
But the Cloud Forest Tree that belonged to him could provide him with sufficient spiritual energy.
He took this opportunity. He could also absorb the essence of the Cloud Forest Tree more quickly and in larger quantities, making it more efficient than normal.
With enough spiritual energy to support him, Shi Tianhao’s powers increased leaps and bounds. He was also closer to the Tribulations of the Yin Wind and the Advanced Stage of the Aurous Core Stage.
As he saw Shi Tianhao stabilizing, Lin Feng turned his head to look at Zhu Yi and Yue Hongyan. The both of them were cultivating tirelessly.
Lin Feng observed the situation of the both of them and developed something in his mind.
Zhu Yi’s psychological state of mind was very stable. He was very calm and could understand the Great Way of Tao. He was even able to reach the special realm in his mind.
To reach this state was something all cultivators wished to. As his state of mind reached a state of chaos, it fulfilled the original beginnings of the Great Tao.
Under such a state of mind, regardless whether the cultivator was cultivating mantras or understanding abhijnas, everything would seem easy to him.
Most cultivators would not be able to reach this stage in their entire lives. Even many Immortal Soul Stage Elders did not have such an experience.
It was also the first time Zhu Yi reached such a state of mind.
“Oh, it seems like Zhu Yi’s accumulation is quite substantial.” Lin Feng nodded his head and looked at Yue Hongyan. Over there, Yue Hongyan was sitting there quietly and was pushing her way towards the Aurous Core Stage.
Overall, Yue Hongyan’s cultivation was also very smooth. However, she did not experience the state of mind like Zhu Yi. It was just a normal cultivation.
Lin Feng retrieved a small piece of green jade. After that, he used his powers to create a small, sealed space, before placing Yue Hongyan within it.
Yue Hongyan was alarmed, “Master?”
As she opened her mouth, her nose had already caught hold of a light, but unnoticeable scent.
Lin Feng laughed, “Put effort into your cultivation. Don’t waste my mind-clearing scent. To reach the special realm is a very precious thing.”
Very soon, Yue Hongyan discovered that if she resisted, this mind-clearing scent would be useless to her. However, if she let down her guard, the scent would cause her mind to enter a state of blurriness.
When the Heavens and Earth first opened and chaos first descended.
A mother nurturing a kid resembled the state when chaos first descended. When one was an infant, his brain was confused and he was barely awake.
“Is this the special realm…Master…” Yue Hongyan stabilized herself immediately and threw away all her nonsensical thoughts. She started to cultivate seriously.
Lin Feng sensed a little and knew that Yue Hongyan had entered that realm. The efficiency of her cultivation had indeed climbed a level.
Her understanding of mantras had also become better. In the past, she had to expend some effort before she could understand some stuff, but now it became extremely easy. Furthermore, some of the minor details that she never used to noticed were now clear to her.
Lin Feng nodded his head in satisfaction, “Oh, the effect is good.”
The mind-clearing scent was diffused in the space that Lin Feng created using his powers. Lin Feng could tell its direction very soon.
“The quantity of the scent was limited. If the space was too big, the scent would be too light. The effect would also fall.” Lin Feng understood in his heart, “It can only be provided to a few people at the same time. It can last for…according to the current situation, around 10 days.”
10 days was neither long nor short. To a cultivator, every retreat had to be counted in years. Some Immortal Soul Stage Elders even retreated for 1000 years, which was not surprising.
To a cultivator, 10 days was nothing in his cultivation journey.
But if it could produce a key effect and help the cultivator to break his own cultivation bottleneck, then these 10 days could last for 10 years and even 100 years.
Lin Feng weighed the scent in his hand, “It’s the same with the Heavenly Oyster Golden Pearl. After one use, one will enter a resting stage. The resting stage of the pearl was 7 days, but what about this thing?”
After seeing that his 3 disciples had embarked on the right track, and that nothing would crop up in the short-term, Lin Feng left the Heavenly Ray Cosmic World first.
He sat on the branch of the Black Treasure Heavenly Tree. He flipped his palm and a ball of Purple Clouds surfaced. Within the Purple Clouds, it was the Immemorial Celestial Dragon remains that Shi Yu gave to him.
Although it was already dead, the remains still exuded a magnificent strength. Its length was almost 10,000 feet and was a tremendous sight to see. Its body was even surrounded by mighty clouds.
Lin Feng revealed his own Flaming Dragon Celestial Armor. The armor was previously dismantled by him.
Lin Feng converted his mana into a radiance and infused it within the remains of the Immemorial Celestial Dragon.
The dragon’s body was very tough, making it difficult for Lin Feng to penetrate it. He had to cultivate it instead, thus requiring him to have patience. He had to cultivate the dragon’s remains slowly.
This dragon belonged to the Yellow Dragon tribe among the Immemorial Celestial Dragons. Its body was not as tough as the Bastille Black Dragon, or not as adept in switching between realities like the White Jade Dragon. But the Yellow Dragon tribe produced more powerful dragons than either of the other two dragon tribes.
The Yellow Dragons possessed demonic powers that were tremendous and as vast as the Central Wutu Land. Although they might seem normal, they were actually very strong.
The immense powers that the Yellow Dragons possessed was similar to human cultivators who cultivated the Great Chaos Primordial Water. In the same realm of cultivators, there were very little cultivators who could match up to their powers.
After pondering, Lin Feng did not cultivate this Yellow Dragon remains into his own avatar. He further dissected it and retrieved the essence of the dragon’s demonic powers, re-cultivating the Flaming Dragon Celestial Armor.
This time, Lin Feng wanted to cultivate the Flaming Dragon Celestial Armor into his magic treasure.
The immense dragon roar resonated and the dragon stature was emanated. Lin Feng cultivated the Yellow Dragon’s body, Bastille Black Dragon’s scales and the eyes of the Flaming Dragon together. Along with the leaves of the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree and the Dragon Tendon Rope, they slowly formed the shape of an armor.
Lin Feng conjured different spells with his hands and he injected streaks of mana into the armor.
It was not like the previous Flaming Dragon Celestial Armor. He patched two different armors together. There was a huge chest plate that hid the Zhuyan Demon Eye that had not been truly cultivated. This new armor was finally a complete entity that was indestructible.
The armor was still made of scales and was entirely black. Around the armor, there was the flow of 2 different gases. One was dirt-yellow and the other was flaming red. These 2 flows of gases converted into dragon figures and let out loud roars.
Under the guidance of Lin Feng’s mana, they seemed like 2 different Immemorial Celestial Dragons that had perished. At this moment, they seemed to resurrect.
“Combine!” Lin Feng shouted and clasped his hands, conjuring a spell. The yellow and red dragon figures entered the armor. The scales on the armor started to tremble vigorously. It was an awe-inspiring scene.
The black armor was plated with a layer of golden splendor. Within this splendor, the image of a flame could be roughly seen.
“It’s no longer just purely the Flaming Dragon’s Demon Eye that is cultivated. It is no longer suitable to call it a Flaming Dragon Celestial Armor.” Lin Feng smiled slightly, “From today onwards, we shall call it the Holy Dragon Heavenly Armor.”
After hearing this, the armor vibrated and released an aura of life. An independent consciousness was birthed.
That was the original soul of the Flaming Dragon Celestial Armor. But now it was still in a sleepy state. More time was needed for it to grow.
Cultivating a magic treasure was a long process. Many treasures even needed hundreds and thousands of years to be successfully cultivated.
Lin Feng had only completed the first step as he cultivated this Holy Dragon Heavenly Armor. There was still a long way to go in the future.
Lin Feng could feel that the Holy Dragon Heavenly Armor was far superior than the Flaming Dragon Celestial Armor.
This left Lin Feng pleased. Strictly speaking, the Flaming Dragon Celestial Armor was a fake magic treasure. But its powers made it seem real. Now that the Holy Dragon Celestial Armor was even stronger, it would be even more powerful when it was fully completed.
After realizing that he still had some good stuff in his hands, Lin Feng could not help but laugh, “Haha! I can be called the collector of treasures from now on.”
Lin Feng once had the thought that after his Immediate Disciples formed the Nascent Soul, all of them would be given a magic treasure. Now it seemed like his goal was about to be fulfilled.
