Chapter 607: Shifting Mountains and Filling the Seas!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
On Mount Yujing, Lin Feng’s supernatural awareness scanned everyone in the Disciples’ Abode. On the whole, the quality was acceptable, but there was no one who was exceptional.
Except for Li Yuanfang and Luo Qingwu, there were none of them who reached a talent statistic score of 30.
Those who were rather exceptional were only Dao Yuting and Zhuge Wanqiu.
Whether these two could form the Nascent Soul in 50 years’ time, it was a huge question mark. Everything was up to fate.
Lin Feng’s style was to assume the worst. Thus, while he would nurture them with all his might, he would only expect them to reach the Aurous Core Stage by the 50 years.
In this way, there were still available slots for the ten Nascent Soul Stage cultivators. He had to continue finding talents who could do so.
According to Lin Feng’s calculations, if the talent statistic had a score above 30 and if the Innate Ability was not average, then there was a high chance the Nascent Soul could be formed within 50 years.
Before forming the Nascent Soul, especially before forming the Aurous Core, the Innate Ability was the most important attribute. Not only was it related to the speed of cultivation, it also decided the foundation of a cultivator. If a yellow or green pill was formed, there was no longer any hope for a Nascent Soul.
Lin Feng’s Great Celestial Way of the Eight Trigrams was unbelievably powerful. As long as it’s cultivated, it was almost certain for a first-grade spiritual altar to be formed. Following that, a first-grade crucible would also be formed and there was hope for a purple pill.
But the mantra’s requirements of a person’s potential were very strict. No ordinary person could match up to it. Otherwise, it would not have initiated the Yi Zi’s Eight Trigrams Variorum.
Right now, only Lin Feng’s Immediate Disciples could start from the orthodox Heavenly Classic of the Way’s Virtues. On one hand, it was because it was not easy to pass down the mantra. On the other hand, even if it could be passed down, it was difficult to inherit it unless the quality was there.
Wang Lin had a full score in his Intelligence and Determination. But because his Innate Ability was lacking, he was stuck in the Beginner Stage of the Foundation Establishment Stage for a long time. He tried to forcefully establish the spiritual altar, but the grade was only so-so. This caused Lin Feng to interrupt his progress.
Only with the arrival of the Spiritual Replenishment Elixir, Heavens-Patching Vine, Supreme Rock Spiritual Altar and other treasures did he manage to cultivate successfully.
The resources invested into helping Wang Lin establish the spiritual altar were immense. If it was his family funding these resources, they might not even be able to fund much of them.
Furthermore, this was Wang Lin. If it was some other person with an average Innate Ability, he would not be able to establish the spiritual altar. He might not even open his aura sea and establish his foundation.
“The problem is, it’s difficult to find someone with a score above 30. I found Tianhao and the rest due to luck.” Lin Feng shook his head. Not to even mention Xiao Yan or Shi Tianhao whose scores reached 33 or 34 and who were destined individuals, finding those who could even reach scores of 30 to 32 was already very difficult.
Although some could not see the detailed statistics, Lin Feng could roughly gauge.
Among all the younger generation cultivators he met, there were only Shi Tianyi, the Marquis of Jinghuan, Shi Xingyun and Jiao Junchen who could reach above a score of 30. Even Jiao Junchen was still pretty uncertain.
Xiao Zhener could be excluded. Lin Feng could tell her statistics clearly.
Tao Yaoyao’s Innate Ability, Intelligence and Determination should not be low, but her Fortune was probably quite average. It was around the same as Dao Yuting.
“If I knew this day will come, I should have kidnapped Xiao Zhener over.” Lin Feng sighed. She had already formed the Nascent Soul. Even if she was kidnapped over now, the system would not recognize her.
Lin Feng stood up and walked out of the Grand Heavens Pavilion, “A heavy burden and a long road to walk.”
This second sect-recruiting campaign was a preparation for the future Foundation Establishment Stage and Aurous Core Stage disciples. Along with the first sect-recruiting campaign, there was a positive outlook.
Lin Feng had to continue to keep a lookout. Although finding the perfect talent was largely due to luck, hard work was still required.
After Shi Tianhao and the rest formed the Nascent Soul, Lin Feng would let the few of them into the outside world and see who they can scout.
“Damn it, this is making me anxious. I have to make a big move.” Lin Feng thought rather heartlessly. “Too evil? But it is likely to work out.”
He appeared in front of Shi Tianhao’s Wasteland Valley. Within the valley, the dragon stature was mighty. If someone was kept in the loop, he might have thought he was in the Heavenly Dragon Ancient Land.
Lin Feng entered the Wasteland Valley and saw Xiao Yan, Yue Hongyan, Yang Qing and the rest of them there. They gathered around Shi Tianhao and they were speechless.
Beside Shi Tianhao, there was a huge pile of dragon bones over there. Some of these bones were flawless, but there were those who were damaged.
These dragon bones belonged to dragons who were in the Demon Lord realm that had formed the Demon Soul. Even if they had perished, their dragon statures were still very mighty.
But Shi Tianhao dug them out very easily, as if he did not expend any effort.
There was a set of incomplete remains, which belonged to a dragon which had formed the Undying Demon Soul.
“You exceeded the time in the Dragon Rock Gate to dig this out?” Xiao Yan asked. Shi Tianhao nodded his head, “It’s a little tedious. The dragon looks the same even after it has perished.”
Everyone rolled their eyes at him as he was saying something obvious.
He dug the remains of a dragon with an Undying Demon Soul. Even a dead camel was bigger than a horse, what more a dragon?
As they saw Lin Feng arriving, everyone greeted him. Lin Feng ignored the dragon bones as they belonged to Shi Tianhao. He could do whatever he wanted with them.
“Where’s that Angmao Skull?” Lin Feng asked. Shi Tianhao’s eyes brightened up and he laughed, “I just needed your help, Master.” (Translator’s Note: Angmao refers to a mythical demon bird)
The void space above him started to crack suddenly. A cauldron was revealed. Inside the cauldron, there was the Green Bronze Crucible of Emptiness and the Aurora Polar Mirror. The vibration of the Green Bronze Crucible of Emptiness became more intense.
Without Shi Tianhao’s powers to help, these two Nascent Soul Stage magic items didn’t seem to be able to repress the magic treasure embryo.
Lin Feng pointed and retracted the Green Bronze Crucible of Emptiness and the Aurora Polar Mirror. A golden skull flew out, which was surrounded by purple lightning.
A light figure of a huge bird surfaced. It was extremely large and lightning was rumbling around it. The feathers on his chest, stomach and wings were dim golden in color, whereas the feathers on his head and tail was jade-green in color. Its crown was purplish-blue in color.
It was the Immemorial Demon, Thunder Beast Angmao.
As the figure of the Angmao appeared, it flapped its wings and flew up high. Its tri-colored feathers flapped and it was shooting towards the sky.
Lin Feng pointed again at the head of the Angmao. The light figure was destroyed. And at the position where Lin Feng pointed, the lightning dissipated and revealed a golden bone.
As Lin Feng pointed at it, the Angmao Skull lost its life power and its radiance disappeared. It felt from mid-space and was caught by Shi Tianhao.
“When you form the Nascent Soul, you shall cultivate another one.” Lin Feng said, “Without breaking the original restrictions, the Great Void Sect’s secret manual has a special side to it that can help you summon this magic treasure embryo in the Nascent Soul Stage.”
He extended his finger and pointed to Shi Tianhao’s forehead. At this moment, a spell was transferred into his mind. “This is the Great Void Sect secret manual that I have just consolidated. Go and understand it. When you finish, you can cultivate the magic treasure.”
Shi Tianhao laughed while nodding his head, keeping his Angmao Skull.
After that, five days passed and Lin Feng observed the disciples in the Disciples’ Abode quietly. His understanding of them grew. It was no longer just based on their talent statistics.
On the fifth day, Lin Feng sent the orders, “Everyone, please gather outside the Grand Heavens Pavilion.”
Under the arrangement of Dao Zhiqiang, the disciples in the Disciples’ Abode gathered at the empty space outside the Grand Heavens Pavilion. Over there, Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi and the rest were already waiting with their official disciples.
When everyone was there, Lin Feng’s voice resonated, “Descend the mountain.”
Mount Yujing had already returned to Mount Kunlun. At this point, under Lin Feng’s control, it escaped from void space and descended in the Greater World, floating in mid-space.
At the bottom of the mountain, it was the peak of the north foot of Mount Kunlun, Lingyun Peak. This was also the position where Mount Yujing first appeared in the world.
Under Lin Feng’s orders, Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi and the rest brought their disciples down the mountain. Everyone landed on the mountain peak beside Lingyun Peak.
On Mount Yujing, Lin Feng’s mana converted into a ball of Purple Clouds and descended, covering the tip of Lingyun Peak.
In the next moment, the bunch of junior disciples opened their eyes wide and saw the tip of Lingyun Peak being cut off by the Purple Clouds.
The cross-section of the mountain tip was smooth, as if a tofu had been cut. A balanced surface was cut out.
Lingyun Peak reached the clouds and the body of the mountain was huge. The tip of the mountain that was cut out was like a mighty mountain, but as the Purple Clouds moved back and forth a little, the mountain tip that had been cut off disappeared. It was as if it never existed.
The bunch of disciples looked around. But as they looked around, they could not tell where the mountain tip was.
Following that, as the Purple Clouds re-surfaced, it landed beside Lingyun Peak. As the mountain tip re-appeared, it was like a huge wave hitting sandcastles on a beach. Very quickly, the other mountains were flattened.
Amidst the boom, dust flew around and caused a sandstorm.
In the next moment, the Purple Clouds seemed to have converted into a huge hand. As it dug the flattened ground, a huge hole was created.
As the Purple Clouds rumbled, spiritual energy was drawn from the sea of clouds and huge volumes of water filled the hole. A huge lake formed in an instant. From afar, it was as if an ocean had appeared in between the mountains.
The bottom of the lake was connected to the underground water of Mount Kunlun, guided by spiritual energy summoned by Lin Feng.
In a blink of an eye, the appearance of Mount Kunlun had changed completely. A huge plot of flattened ground appeared among the mountains. And a lake appeared on the flattened grounds. At the edge of the lake, there was a huge mountain erected and the mountain peak was level ground.
Liu Xiafeng, Xu Yunsheng and the rest looked at this scene and swallowed their saliva sub-consciously.
Shi Tianhao, Yue Hongyan and the rest could roughly understand how a battle worked and the miracles of it.
But on Lin Feng’s level, while battling others was more miraculous and the spectacle was greater, to these Qi Cultivation Stage disciples, they could not understand at all. They could only judge that Lin Feng was stronger based on the opponents’ strengths and weaknesses.
As they saw Lin Feng winning, the bunch of junior disciples were proud. But to ask them what was so powerful about Lin Feng, they wouldn’t know as their realms were too far apart.
Whatever happened in front of everyone was nothing to Lin Feng. But as the others saw, they were shocked. They could understand his power. Thus, they acted more intuitively and this scene was etched in their minds.
Shifting mountains and filling the seas was easy for Lin Feng, but this scene shocked his disciples.
