Chapter 645: Mass Producing the Spiritual Replenishment Elixir
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Lin Feng revamped the Disciples’ Abode. He added the brilliance of time change above the foundation of the gathering of spiritual energy.
“This place is no longer just the Disciples’ Abode anymore.” Lin Feng smiled. “From today onwards, this will be called the Universal Light Hall.”
Besides Luo Qingwu who was still at the Yin-Yang Sea cultivating, Lin Feng’s Immediate Disciples all received his message to proceed to the Universal Light Hall. They observed the place and discovered the change in it. All of them were in awe.
Lin Feng said, “From now on, I will set the rule that the Foundational Disciples on Yun Peak will undergo major tests at certain set period of time. Those who pass the test can become a Successive Disciple. Besides the major tests, there will also be minor tests from time to time.”
“Those who pass the test can enter the Universal Light Hall to cultivate for a period of time, as a reward.”
Xiao Yan and the rest nodded their heads, “This is a good way of motivating the disciples to work harder.”
Zhu Yi pondered for a moment before asking, “Master, in this way, won’t the stronger ones become stronger and the weaker ones lag further behind?”
Lin Feng shook his head, “The major tests are used to test the potential and character of the disciples. It’s not about their cultivations.”
Zhu Yi looked at the various rooms in the Universal Light Hall and nodded his head, saying, “The movement of time in each room is different. Whichever room they choose, we can test their self-confidence.”
Lin Feng said, “Even so, the Foundational Disciples must pass the minor tests before they can enter to cultivate. Whereas the Successive Disciples under all of you can enter anytime they want. This is also a privilege enjoyed by Successive Disciples.”
Zhu Yi and the rest nodded their heads in unison.
Lin Feng placed his hands behind him and walked in one direction. Xiao Yan and the rest also followed closely behind him. They came to somewhere not far from the Universal Light Hall and stopped.
“Rise.” Lin Feng had three Sect-Establishment Deeds in his hand. After he activated them, three streaks of radiances flew out and one of them landed to one side beneath the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree. It was a specific position where a small building was formed.
Whereas out of the other two radiances, one landed beside the Celestial Golden Pavilion and Tripitaka Block, revealing a huge, majestic pavilion. The signboard of the pavilion wrote, “Divine Work Pavilion”. It was formed from the Sect-Establishment Deed.
The other radiance landed beside the Universal Light Hall, converting to a huge pavilion. Although it was not as huge as the Grand Heavens Pavilion, it was still significantly larger than any other of the buildings or pavilions.
Xiao Yan was curious as he looked at this pavilion. They walked one by one into the pavilion and felt the brilliance of the pavilion. After a while, they were enlightened as they smiled, “Master, what a move. This pavilion can even be used by us.”
Lin Feng smiled while he said, “All of you won’t need it anymore. But your disciples will need it.”
He looked at Xiao Yan and the rest, “Go back and guide your disciples well. Don’t delay anymore.”
Everyone nodded their heads and left. Xiao Yan was asked to stay by Lin Feng, “Come, follow me back to the Celestial Golden Pavilion.”
The both of them came to the medicine room and Lin Feng turned his head while laughing, “How’s the magic treasure that I gave to you?”
Xiao Yan laughed cheekily, “We are getting along well.”
As he said, he conjured a spell with his hands, a streak of five-colored flowing light rose from his head. Within the flowing light, an ancient, black deed floated in mid-sky. It was the Divine Token of the Five Thrones, an Immortal Soul Stage magic treasure.
According to the positions of the five elements, the deed was carved with five different words. Every word was shining with a radiance. On closer look at these radiances, there were dense patterns that moved in their positions, containing an immense force.
These five words were, “Tai”, “Chong”, “Xia”, “Gu” and “Shi”. They were the names of five powerful Emperors from the Antiquity Age and Primordial Age. They each carried the willpower of the five Emperors, before they combined these willpowers together.
Each of these willpowers seemed shallow, but once they were carefully analyzed, one could realize the thread of thought within them, which were faintly recognizable.
Although this treasure was only in the gestation realm, its might was immense, beyond ordinary. It could threaten the Heavens. In terms of defensive strength, it was one of the best among the magic treasures in the gestation realm. It was very difficult to violate its defense.
Xiao Yan possessed the five Primordial Fires. As he exhibited the offensive powers of the Heaven Fire Lotus, it was very frightening. But he was a very courageous person. He would never bend and would sometimes cause himself to be stranded in danger. That was why Lin Feng gave him this magic treasure to protect himself.
At the same time, Xiao Yan used the five Primordial Fires to nurture the Divine Token of the Five Thrones, which was beneficial for this magic treasure.
The Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire nurtured the “Tai” word, Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze nurtured the “Chong” word, Grand Sun Primordial Fire nurtured the “Gu” word, Nanming Primordial fire nurtured the “Xia” word and the Pure Yang Primordial Fire nurtured the “Shi” word.
Xiao Yan laughed bitterly, “I don’t even dare to cultivate this treasure in front of Zhener. She is a descendant under the Emperor of the Ancients and possesses the Nanming Primordial Fire. But I am using the Nanming Primordial Fire to cultivate the willpower of Emperor Xia. What am I doing.” (Translator’s Note: Emperor of the Ancients is also known as Emperor Gu, thus Xiao Yan is trying to convey the conflict that he is facing here.)
Lin Feng laughed, “Among the Seven Legendary Primordial Fires, the Nanming Primordial Fire is the fire that combines Yin and Yang. It’s does not have as much Yang as the Grand Sun Primordial Fire or the Pure Yang Primordial Fire. The Emperor of the Ancients possessed the Nanming Primordial Fire, thus the person who cultivated this Divine Token of the Five Thrones devoted this fire to the northern direction. (Translator’s Note: Note that in the position of the five elements, the northern direction takes the fourth position. The “Gu” word is also occupying the fourth position, refer to the above paragraphs.)
“Moreover, the “Gu” word on this Divine Token of the Five Thrones may indeed be related to the Emperor of the Ancients, but it has nothing to do with the Nanming Primordial Fire. The orthodox rule of the Emperor of the Ancients is very broad and the Holy Lihuo Mantra that is used to cultivate the Nanming Primordial fire is only just a part of it.”
Xiao Yan laughed, “I must still be careful. I heard that during the Antiquity Age, the Emperor of the Ancients and Emperor Xia knew each other, even though their rules were not successive. When Emperor Xia was still on the throne, the Emperor of the Ancients’ cultivation was still very shallow. There was a disagreement with the clan members of Emperor Xia.”
“People like to bring two unrelated things together.” Lin Feng laughed. “Don’t follow them.”
Lin Feng lifted his finger and a radiance landed in front of Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan caught what was in front of him and saw a pill that was as big as a fist, snow-white and half-transparent appearing in front of him.
The center of the pill revealed a subtle black color. The black color appeared and disappeared.
“Good pill!” Xiao Yan’s nose moved a little, as he smelt the scent of the pill. He felt the medicinal power from within and was moved.
Lin Feng gave him the Spiritual Replenishment Elixir.
After hearing Lin Feng introduction of the medicinal effects of it, Xiao Yan caressed the elixir and said, “Master, although the effects of this elixir are unbelievable, I believe there is a limit to it.”
Lin Feng said, “That’s right, but some disciples are talented. Just like your Third Junior who was limited by his Innate Ability, this elixir is very suitable for him.”
“I have some finished products here. Go and figure them out. Try to cultivate more of them out.”
Xiao Yan received a few pieces of Spiritual Replenishment Elixir from Lin Feng and started to attempt cultivating more of them using the Ethereal Heart Cauldron.
Ever since Yue Hongyan obtained the Spiritual Enhancement Herb from the Ancient Huanghai World, Lin Feng had been nurturing it in the medicine valley. Now that it had become more readily available, it could withstand the mass production of elixirs.
Through Xiao Yan’s efforts, a considerable amount of Spiritual Replenishment Elixirs were produced, even if the success rate was beneath the rest of the elixirs.
During this period of time, Lin Feng also carried out some experiments. On the whole, the result left him satisfied.
There was a limit to how much the Spiritual Replenishment Elixir could increase one’s Innate Ability. As a cultivator consumed this elixir, the effect would only occur once. After consumption, the Innate Ability would rise by one point. The upper limit was 7 points.
A person with 6 points would reach 7 points. Whereas for those who were already 7 points, there would be slight improvements, but they couldn’t reach 8 points.
For those who were already with 8 points, there was no use.
An Innate Ability of 7 points seemed ordinary. As compared to Shi Tianhao, Yang Qing and Luo Qingwu, it seemed like trash. But in truth, it was already quite exceptional for the general masses.
The others could not tell the talent statistics like Lin Feng. The only segment that they could tell was the Innate Ability. As for Intelligence and Determination, they could only roughly gauge them.
In the human cultivation world, the standard was 6 points for Innate Ability for someone to walk on the elite path, less those from the Great Void Sect.
For those with 7 points, they were talented and needed to be watched. Many great powers would fight for them.
For those with 8 points, they were unbelievably talented. They would be watched by almost every sect.
For those with 9 points, they were considered freaks. Even the Great Void Sect would be keeping tabs on them. They were very rare.
As for those with 10 points, they were almost extinct. They were those who only appeared once in a thousand years. Lin Feng could confirm that Shi Tianhao was the only one with 10 points.
As for Lin Daohan and Shi Tianyi, their statistics were unknown, as they were already pledged to a sect.
Wang Lin’s Innate Ability was only 5 points, and was judged by Lin Feng to not be qualified. That was his standard for choosing an Immediate Disciple in the system. But in front of everybody else, he was just ordinary.
Wang Lin was unfortunate. He was a late bloomer, even for his Innate Ability. The initial toughness of his soul was quite good, but this limited strength of his could only be discovered through deeper cultivation.
Without his Qi cultivation, he went to the Hengyue Faction for a test. His strength was not exhibited and he was naturally treated as trash.
After all, Wang Lin’s flesh seemed average and his more foundational abilities were in a mess.
When his Innate Ability rose, it did not seem much. But this little increase caused huge quality changes, especially when he was erecting the spiritual altar during the Foundation Establishment Stage. It could be decisive.
Furthermore, the rise in Innate Ability would reduce the time needed for the initial cultivation. The difficulty would also be reduced and efficiency would be increased.
To Lin Feng, this was important. This was not just a slight improvement, but a significant improvement. His standards when accepting disciples were high. If their Innate Abilities were low, then their other three talent statistics should be outstanding.
The rest put their attention on one’s Innate Ability, but Lin Feng knew other things.
Now that he increased the Innate Abilities of his disciples, he could allow the overall potential of the sect to increase by another level.
