Chapter 614: Final Result of the Test
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Li Yuanfang went first. To those who were unstable in their minds, this had a huge influence on them.
Of course, the influence can go both ways. For those who were too concerned about it, they could not focus on answering their questions. As for those who were motivated by it, they became even more focused.
All of these was witnessed by Lin Feng, Xiao Yan, Shi Tianhao and the rest. They developed a deeper understanding about the characters of their disciples.
Luo Qingwu sat on her knees and her hands were supporting her chin. As she watched Li Yuanfang leaving, she calmed her nerves and thought about the question again.
Dao Yuting was even more stable than her and she tried to figure out Lin Feng’s question.
For her problem, the Heaven Lake Sect had no other way of resolving it other than training her with Song Qingyuan. Undoubtedly, it saved a great deal of effort. At the same time, it was the most beneficial method. When solving the problem, ignoring one’s own feelings was indeed the most beneficial to the cultivation of two people.
But there were many experts in the Heaven Lake Sect. Since they could not think of many solutions, it was difficult for Dao Yuting to figure it out in such a short period of time.
“When I was ascending the pagoda, the spiritual energy that was suppressing me and the light that was attacking me seemed weird.” Dao Yuting thought for a moment and an idea flashed in her mind, “Don’t tell me the pressure of the spiritual energy and the attack of the light contained some form of guidance?”
She realized that the test she faced while ascending the pagoda was not just a test. It contained some sort of rhythm, as if there was some guidance involved. Now that she pondered over her question, she could derive some clues.
Dao Yuting was enlightened. The question now could be analyzed through the previous tests, and from there, the answer could be found.
Now, she had to recall and understand the feeling she felt in the pagoda. This feeling was not the direct answer, but it had to be translated for the answer.
When Dao Yuting realized that, Luo Qingwu reacted too. She recalled that when she ascended the pagoda, there was some detailed changes in her feelings and her soul. After that, she tried to figure it out to derive the conclusion.
After a while, Luo Qingwu’s eyes brightened and she stood up. She pulled the streak of light that belonged to her and she went to the other side of the light shield.
Luo Qingwu did the same thing as Li Yuanfang, as she bade goodbye to everyone seriously from the other side. After that, she walked towards the formation.
As she walked, she thought in her heart, “Everyone’s question is different. So, when we were at the pagoda, the restrictions that were targeted at everyone gave different hints? Wow, there are so many people. Grandmaster is indeed powerful.”
As what Luo Qingwu and Dao Yuting expected, this was exactly what Li Yuanfang understood.
The tests in the pagoda previously contained things that they could use for the last test.
For the purpose of fairness, the pressure of the spiritual energy and the intensity of the light felt by everyone was different. But during this process, Lin Feng already started to understand each of their problems slowly.
Every one of them used the method Zhu Yi imparted to them to resist the spiritual energy and the light. Although the same method was used, everyone had different body conditions and used the method differently. Slowly, it revealed the problems they had in their cultivations.
Even those who had not cultivate their Qi were subjected to the same reasoning.
Following the shift of time, after everyone’s problem was discovered, the pressure by the spiritual energy and attack of the light still remained. Lin Feng secretly injected a few hints into the bodies of everyone without them knowing.
No written words, sounds, spoken words, consciousness or aura.
It was pure feeling. When everyone arrived at the top of the pagoda, the light shield revealed the streaks of light. Everyone had their own questions, which were not set beforehand. They were just produced.
Without even using the Talent Analysis Device, Lin Feng could use his own supernatural awareness to tell each of their soul’s condition.
But human thoughts changed quickly. Whatever problems that they might face during their cultivations were unknown and it was difficult to predict beforehand.
And through this method, Lin Feng understood each of their shortcomings and tried to tackle them specifically.
He delivered the hints to them, but it was up to them to make a change. At the same time, Lin Feng could test their Intelligence.
Of course, some of them did not need such a method to discover the problems in their cultivation. For example, for people like Luo Qingwu and Dao Yuting, they would know as more time passed.
It was easy to say such things, but to summarize the problems of a few hundred people and give them individual feedbacks was very tedious. After that, checking on the minor changes in their soul was also not easy. To a normal person, it was unbearable.
While it was very tedious to a normal person, it was simple for Lin Feng.
After Li Yuanfang, Luo Qingwu also solved her question. She stepped on the formation and was sent to Mount Yujing.
Someone calculated the time and said hesitantly, “The golden time should have just reached. But I wonder if she passed the test?”
Everyone was pondering in their minds. Some of them were even very anxious.
After a while, Dao Yuting stood up and grabbed the streak of light that belonged to her. She reached the other side of the light shield and walked towards the formation calmly
At this point, no one said anything. They were sure that the golden time had passed. Although it had passed for not long, it was still undeniable that it had passed already.
Thinking of it, Dao Yuting spent around the same amount of time as Luo Qingwu to solve the question. The difference in the timing they passed the test was due to the difference in time they took to ascend to the top of the pagoda.
When they were ascending the pagoda, Luo Qingwu was faster than Dao Yuting. The time they took to answer the question was around the same. But because of the previous gap in timing, the two of them finished at different times.
Whether Luo Qingwu passed before the golden time had to be verified, but Dao Yuting crossed the time.
On Mount Yujing, Shi Tianhao and the rest shook their heads, “What a pity. She missed by a little only.”
“Missing by an inch can be costly. An instant is already very long.” Lin Feng said.
At this time, the golden time had passed. The people in the pagoda relaxed more. Although they felt that it was regretful, they managed to calm their nerves and put their focus on answering their questions.
As time passed, Xu Yunsheng, Ying Luozha and Zhuge Wanqiu finished at the same time. They walked towards the light shield and grabbed their own streaks of light.
After that, they reached the other side of the shield.
Xu Yunsheng and Ying Luozha looked at each other. Xu Yunsheng shook his head and said, “You won this round.”
He reached the top of the pagoda before the both of them. He started to solve his question earlier, but eventually they solved it at the same time. The both of them had caught up with him.
Ying Luozha snorted, “You won one and I won one. The end result is still the same.”
Zhuge Wanqiu looked at the both of them curiously. One seemed rebellious like a wolf and the other seemed peaceful, but was actually proud like an eagle.
“Seniors?” Zhuge Wanqiu asked shyly, “Can we go to the formation already?”
Ying Luozha snorted and did not speak. He walked towards the formation. Xu Yunsheng looked at Zhuge Wanqiu and nodded his head, “Let’s go.”
The three of them passed through the formation and left the pagoda, arriving at Mount Yujing.
After them, Li Xingfei stood up and grabbed her streak of light. She had passed the test.
Following her, Liu Xiafeng, Zhao Huan, Yan Wuwei and a few Foundational Disciples passed the test too.
Time passed very quickly. At different times, there were disciples who solved their questions and arrived at the formation. They were then transported to Mount Yujing.
Suddenly, the pagoda shook. Although the light shield and the streaks of light did not disappear, the formation on the other side of the shield did.
As they saw this scene, the remaining disciples sighed in desolation. This meant that they did not pass the test and they could not become Successive Disciples.
Some of them were indignant. They had found out the trick and were making their final conclusions. With more time, they could solve the question. But time and tide waited for no man.
The flowing light from the white light shield descended down and entered the bodies of the respective disciples.
The bunch of them were shocked. Lin Feng’s guidance had converted into simple words in their heads.
A great portion of the flowing lights left the top of the pagoda and landed on different spots of the pagoda, finding their respective owners. Even if they didn’t reach the top of the pagoda, Lin Feng did not neglect to provide these disciples guidance.
Although they did not pass the test, every disciple did not leave empty-handed. After going through some training, as well as receiving Lin Feng’s guidance, to the Foundational Disciples, it was a rare opportunity for them.
The pagoda converted into a streak of Purple Clouds and brought everyone to Mount Yujing. It landed on the top of the mountain.
As the Purple Clouds dissipated, the pagoda completely disappeared. Everyone who was disturbed by the illusions regained their awareness. After clarifying the situation, they could not help but feel depressed.
But they soon cheered up and looked around them.
Inferno Precipice, Heavenly Temple, Forest Abode, Blizzard Valley, Nirvana World and the Wasteland Valley started to shoot out auras into the Nine Heavens.
Those who passed the test also proceeded to the respective places.
Now that they were Successive Disciples, they could make a choice of who they wanted to learn from. But they also had to undergo the test of Xiao Yan and the rest. Only after passing the test could their wishes be fulfilled.
Those who did not pass the test would not be returned to Yun Peak. They would be allocated to the different factions. But in this way, it might be awkward as they faced their future Masters. Thus, it was important for everyone to make a proper choice.
The Foundational Disciples who did not pass the test scanned the different places that appeared. They wanted to see which choice the Successive Disciples would make.
Everyone’s attention landed on a young lady with pale-white skin. They were a little confused at this instant.
It was Dao Yuting. She was in the Foundation Establishment Stage as she entered the sect, but it was a pity she missed out on being Lin Feng’s Immediate Disciple.
But Dao Yuting was calm. She walked towards one of the six places.
