Chapter 621: Killing Many Birds with One Stone
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Objectively speaking, although the Celestial Sect of Wonders was very reputable, it was lacking depth.
To put it more crudely, removing the rest of the Celestial Sect of Wonders except Lin Feng and his Immediate Disciples, there was no difference in the eyes of others.
In most eyes, the Celestial Sect of Wonders referred only to Lin Feng and his few Immediate Disciples.
This was not a very positive situation for a sect hoping to develop in the future. It had many outstanding cultivators in the higher ranks of the sect, but its foundation was still lacking.
To a certain extent, the current Celestial Sect of Wonders was like a reverse pyramid. No matter how one looked at it, it did not seem right.
Even for the Great Void Sect with many top-tier talents, they were still packed with capable cultivators in the medium and bottom levels of the pyramid.
The Celestial Sect of Wonders possessed very powerful cultivators at the top, but more time was needed to stabilize its foundation.
After Shi Tianhao formed the Nascent Soul, Lin Feng did not make a big fuss over it. On one hand, he wanted to wait for Xiao Yan. On the other hand, he wanted to wait for his later generation disciples to develop.
When that happened, it would be grand when he invited others over for a ceremony. If he navigated things well, he could allow the influence of the sect to climb another level.
Although no one dared to say it in front of him because of his powers, Lin Feng knew that there were many others who mocked his sect for having a lack of foundation.
As the leader, he was reputable. The few under him were also decently well-known. But the rest were all unknown. There was no system or scale to speak of.
If he planned things well for the future ceremony, he could switch this situation around. At the same time, he could unite everyone, establishing the core position of the Celestial Sect of Wonders among the other friendly great powers. This was killing many birds with one stone.
The final result was dependent on hard work. Since he had a plan and goal, Lin Feng had to prepare sufficiently for it.
Of course, he had to settle the problem of Xiao Yan forming the Nascent Soul first.
Right now, Xiao Yan sat on his knees on the ground. The Four Primordial Fires converted into four flaming wings which were wide open behind his back. The fire was magnificent and filled the entire skies.
The four flaming wings were divided into two per side, and each side mirrored the other side.
Out of the two flaming wings above his shoulders, the left side was the Pure Yang Primordial Fire and the right side was the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire.
Out of the two flaming wings below his waist, the left side was the Grand Sun Primordial Fire and the right side was the Nanming Primordial Fire.
Xiao Yan closed his eyes and the wing that was formed from the Pure Yang Primordial Fire started to twist and disperse, converting into a white sea of fire, covering the void space above Xiao Yan.
As Lin Feng saw this, he extended his right hand with his five fingers opened. He grabbed his fist and a powerful sense of aura spread, engulfing Xiao Yan. At the same time, it contained the flames around him.
Following that, Lin Feng’s left index finger tapped Xiao Yan and a streak of black fire spurted out, landing on Xiao Yan’s body. It was the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze, another Primordial Fire.
In this instant, the five Primordial Fires were gathering within Xiao Yan’s body.
But they were not cordial towards one another. Very soon, there was a huge clash. They were like firecrackers that were in danger of exploding.
If Lin Feng did not use his powers to stabilize these Primordial Fires, Xiao Yan would have razed himself using the Primordial Fires that he possessed.
With his current Aurous Core Stage cultivation, controlling four Primordial Fires was his limit.
More accurately speaking, out of these four Primordial Fires, one had to be the Pure Yang Primordial Fire. Otherwise, if four Primordial Fires were chosen out of the remaining six, Xiao Yan was unable to withstand them too.
Five Primordial Fires were beyond Xiao Yan’s limit. Even if he formed the Nascent Soul and entered the Beginner Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage, he would still be unable to control five Primordial Fires.
But now, Lin Feng and Xiao Yan were trying to defy logic.
Xiao Zhener stood quietly at one side and watched Xiao Yan. She revealed a worried expression, but she was still calm. After she witnessed Lin Feng’s powers at the battle of Xiling, she knew she could count on him.
But she could not help but feel worried as she watched Xiao Yan challenge something of such high difficulty.
“Observe carefully and understand the change in power within. This will help you in your cultivation of the Nanming Primordial Fire.” Lin Feng’s voice sounded. “The successors of the Emperor of the Ancients are proficient in the control of the Nanming Primordial Fire, but what we are about to do next is also unseen before. I believe it will help you if you can understand it. I will not stop you from passing it down to your family.”
Xiao Zhener replied, “Thank you Elder for your guidance.” Although Lin Feng said that, she knew what was respect. Lin Feng was generous enough to let her watch, thus she would not pass down what she saw.
Lin Feng nodded his head and stopped speaking. Both their attentions were fixed on Xiao Yan now.
The white sea of fire above Xiao Yan was surging continuously, while the other Four Primordial Fires were sucked within the white sea of fire under his command.
With Lin Feng’s powers protecting him, Xiao Yan could use his mind to control the Primordial Fires.
Amidst the white sea of fire, the other four Primordial Fires were raging non-stop. They were infused into Xiao Yan’s supernatural awareness and powers, and were being cultivated.
Slowly, in the western direction of the white sea of fire, the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire gathered and converted into a ferocious, purple tiger slowly. As it roared, an aura of ferocity was unleashed.
The image of the Great White Tiger unleashed a spirit of merciless killing. All life was killed by it.
After cultivating the Four Appearances Heaven-Cleaving Script, Xiao Yan infused his understanding of the way of the Heavens and Earth, as the four images of the Jade Green Dragon, Blood Red Sparrow, Great White Tiger and Genbu were birthed.
Out of the five Primordial Fires that he possessed now, the most ferocious and destructive one of all, the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire, gathered to form the Great White Tiger image. It was a perfect complement. As the powers of both parties combined, they were pushed to the extremes.
And in the southern direction of the white sea of fire, it was the golden Grand Sun Primordial Fire, which converted into a sparrow. The sparrow moved the Nine Heavens, as if it wanted to destruct all matter.
This was the Blood Red Sparrow image formed from the Grand Sun Primordial Fire.
In the northern direction of the white sea of fire, the Nanming Primordial fire gathered. The red and blue radiance from it separated gradually. Within the red radiance, there was an aura of silence. Whereas within the blue radiance, there was an unusual activity.
The flames separated and a portion of it combined with the red radiance to create a turtle form, while another portion of it combined with the blue radiance to create a snake form.
As both parties combined again, a miraculous power concept was birthed. It was the image of Genbu.
In the eastern direction of the white sea of fire, there was a ball of Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze that was surging. It was abnormally fierce and was attempting to engulf everything around it that it came into contact with. Even the other Primordial Fires were not spared.
But with Lin Feng’s powers suppressing it, along with the Vairocana Pristine Cleansing Fire sealing it, the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze could not do much.
Xiao Yan quietened down and used his own powers plus the Pure Yang Primordial Fire to cultivate the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze patiently.
Slowly, the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze converted into a dragon, which rose from the white sea of fire. The dragon was obscure and unpredictable.
After the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze formed the Jade Green Dragon image, Xiao Yan heaved a sigh of relief. He had finally made a critical step forward.
Lin Feng was also more relieved. At this stage, he could confirm that his thought was possible.
Lin Feng wanted to help Xiao Yan control the five Primordial Fires in the Beginner Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage. But the difficulty was high.
The solution was to use the Pure Yang Primordial Fire as the foundation to combine the miraculous effects of the other flames, so as to allow him to control the other four Primordial Fires.
Using the way concept of the Four Appearances Heaven-Cleaving Script, he could infuse the Primordial Fires and cultivate them separately. From there, he could separate the Primordial Fires and control them, thus preventing them from clashing with one another.
To a certain extent, it was like how Shi Tianhao cultivated the four Great Chaos Furnance using the blood essence of the Four Immemorial Evil Beasts.
The model Xiao Yan first used to cultivate the Four Appearances Heaven-Cleaving Script was inside out, just like Zhu Yi. Whereas Shi Tianhao cultivated it from outside in.
Now, with Lin Feng’s help, Xiao Yan combined both models together, ascending another level.
Of course, at this stage, Xiao Yan’s cultivation was only the start. He had to cultivate the Four Primordial Fires continuously and maintain the balance and perfect condition.
Once he became more familiar, he could control his model of cultivation and challenge the Void Lightning Tribulations in that state.
The two difficulties of this plan Lin Feng had for Xiao Yan were also the key points of it. Firstly, he had to use the Pure Yang Primordial Fire as the foundation and the Four Primordial Fires as the entity of the Four Appearances.
Secondly, in this delicate state, he had to attempt to overcome the Void Lightning Tribulations.
Right now, Xiao Yan could control the Primordial Fire with Lin Feng’s help. Only after he overcame the Void Lightning Tribulations could he truly control his own cultivation.
But he could not cultivate the Four Appearances after he formed the Nascent Soul. That was because the powers he obtained would not be pure enough and could not be entirely cultivated into his own Nascent Soul.
Only by tapping on his state of cultivating the Nascent Soul could he perfect his powers.
Undoubtedly, there was a huge risk involved. That was because during the formation of the Nascent Soul, Lin Feng could not help him. He could only count on himself.
Before this, Xiao Yan had to at least be able to endure for a period of time with his own powers. This period of time was the time he needed to overcome the Void Lightning Tribulations and form the Nascent Soul.
This required more training. In this process, Lin Feng would continue to protect him and ensure that nothing went wrong.
Following the shift of time, Xiao Yan’s powers became purer, while Shi Tianhao had already left the mountain to search for the last Green Bronze Crucible of Emptiness.
According to Yi Longbin from the Samsara Sect, the place to find was not far from the Celestial Sect of Wonders. It was even within the boundaries of Mount Kunlun, at the border of the north foot of Mount Kunlun.
However, a few days later, Shi Tianhao returned with some news that left Lin Feng slightly shocked.
