Chapter 974: All of the Immediate Disciples Are in the Nascent Soul Stage
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Lin Feng’s own mantra, the Heavenly Classic of the Way’s Virtues, was not easy to cultivate and its cultivators must be of a certain quality.
Wang Lin, at the start, was the best example. Before his Innate Ability was augmented, even with full values for Intelligence and Determination, it was still extremely difficult for him to cultivate it.
However, if one was able to cultivate it successfully, then the results would be astounding.
Foundation Establishment stage disciples who cultivated it to great effect would surely form a First Class Spiritual Altar, a First Class Spiritual Crucible and when they obtained their aurous core, it would be a purple one.
If the Divine Lands knew about this news, then they would be in an uproar.
However, even though there’s 100% chance of success for forming a First Class Spiritual Altar, it was still not easy to form a Supreme Spiritual Altar.
With Lin Feng’s current resources and the conditions for cultivating, even for disciples who scored 9 for Innate Ability, they had to depend on luck.
Lin Tong, who cultivated after she turned into a human, and Zhou Yuncong, who was a Yang-Incinerating Entity, all possessed 9 for Innate Ability. However, they were still unable to form their Supreme Spiritual Altars. This was slightly regretful to Xiao Yan and Yang Qing.
Lin Feng too felt that it was regretful. However, it was not exactly bad news. There was some good news too.
Luo Qingwu, who had an Innate Ability of 9 too, and Xiao Yan’s First Disciple Tang Jun were able to successfully form their Supreme Spiritual Altars and Supreme Spiritual Crucibles. During their core formation, there were abnormalities too!
The two of them had perfect cultivation foundations. When they form their nascent souls, they would surely obtain the Holy Light of Creation.
Tang Jun was still far from his soul formation. Lin Feng was excited for Luo Qingwu as he wanted to see what kind of Holy Light of Creation she would form.
The power and use of every single Holy Light of Creation were different and unique. It was only one type of Holy Light of Creation completely disappeared could a Holy Light of Creation of the same type appear once more.
However, there were very few Holy Lights of Creation. In the long history of the Grand Celestial World, the same Holy Light of Creation rarely appeared more than once.
In Lin Feng’s Celestial Sect of Wonders, they had the highest concentration of Holy Lights of Creation. After Tang Jun formed his nascent soul and obtained his Holy Light of Creation, it would surely cause another shockwave.
Indeed, when the Void Lightning Tribulation enveloped Luo Qingwu, other than the sword Qi that resisted against the Void Lightning, one could see a black light flashing in and out of appearance too.
The purple-robed girl left her pavilion and sat cross-legged on top of it. The Xuanche Sword was laid horizontally across her knees.
On top of her head, there was an odd-looking core. Its entire body was black, but it shone radiantly. Purple light could be seen from it.
In the center of the core, one could see a silent, black light swirling about. It was not eye-catching but extremely terrifying.
After the Void Lightning Tribulation, the core split open and shone with light. A female, baby infant appeared and she resembled Luo Qingwu exactly. A black-colored Holy Light of Creation circled around her nascent soul.
When Lin Feng saw that, he started to smile. He did not say much as a ray of black and white holy light shot into the sky.
At the same time, two rainbow-like Holy Light of Creation shot into the sky from the Wasteland Valley. They were Shi Tianhao’s Origin Holy Light and Final Holy Light.
Under the influence of her master and senior, Luo Qingwu exhaled a long breath of air and made a sound like a phoenix. The black light that surrounded her nascent soul turned into a black pillar of light as it enveloped her and pierced through the heaven.
Laughs of joy could be heard from the Inferno Precipice, the Heavenly Temple, the Forest Abode, the Blizzard Valley, the Nirvana World, the River Abode and the Wasteland Valley. “Congratulations Little Junior for successfully forming your nascent soul and reaching the Nascent Soul stage as well as obtaining your Holy Light of Creation. This is truly a rare achievement.”
A group of second-generation disciples too left their abodes and bowed in the direction of the Qingwu Pavilion. “Congratulations little aunt for forming your Nascent Soul.”
Han Yang stood outside the Qingwu Pavilion and looked at the young girl on top of it. Without a hint of arrogance and cunning, he straightened his face and said slowly, “Congratulations, master.”
Lin Feng and Shi Tianhao retracted their Holy Light of Creation. Luo Qingwu too retracted the black light pillar as her nascent soul returned to her body. She flew up into the air and bowed to all the abodes as she said, “Thank you fellow disciples for your love and concern.”
She turned into a ray of light and appeared before Lin Feng, where she knelt down and said, “Thank you master for your love and concern. You made me into who I am today.”
A notification sounded from the side of Lin Feng’s ears, “Congratulations host as your immediate disciple, Luo Qingwu, has formed her nascent soul in less than 50 years. Now, 7 of host’s immediate disciples have formed their nascent souls.”
Right now, all of Lin Feng’s immediate disciple had formed their nascent soul. When the news spread, friendly powers came to congratulate him, delighting Lin Feng.
With a sect full of heroes who had realized their potential, Lin Feng was extremely happy.
He lifted her up and looked around him. First, he looked at the Inferno Precipice and the other abodes. Then, he looked at Mount Yujing before finally looking at the Mirror Lake, Cloud Mirror City and the clouds underneath Mount Yujing. At long last, he took a look at the Celestial Wonders World.
After he had looked through everything, Lin Feng smiled and thought, “That’s more like it.”
A second thought appeared in his head, “Cunning system. Including Wang Lin, eight of my disciples had formed their nascent souls. Somehow, the number 7 did not seem right.”
He shook his head as he laughed at his thinking. He chased these thoughts out of his mind as he looked at his disciple once more, “Congratulations, Qingwu.”
Luo Qingwu’s eyes were slightly red as she said, “It’s all thanks to master’s teaching…”
It was the warm, smiling person before her that freed her from the Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl and saved her after her fall from her grace. Then, he helped her back up and allowed her to scale even greater heights than before. With his own hands, he made her into who she was today.
Lin Feng smiled and shook his head, “All I did was to bring you into the sect. Your achievement today is a result of your own cultivation and hard work. All I did was to guide you. Rotten wood is hard to sculpt into statues, but you are no rotten wood.”
He meant every word he said. The little girl was now a mature, young woman. Her growth could not only be measured in terms of height.
Initially, she was weak and lazy. Right now, that was all in the past.
Lin Feng smiled and said, “Good job, now that you are a big girl and a Nascent Soul stage cultivator, you can go and have your moment in the sun. Many people want to congratulate you and your own disciple is in the Aurous Core stage too. You can stop crying in front of me already.”
Luo Qingwu smiled and sniffled. Before Lin Feng, she could not control her emotions and was still the young girl who had just joined the sect.
Lin Feng smiled and pointed his fingers in mid-air. A light flashed and a bamboo stick that was a verdant green appeared in mid-air.
Luo Qingwu looked at it carefully and realized that the bamboo stick had seven segments. It contained a massive, mystic power within.
Luo Qingwu then discovered that there appeared to be a fire dancing on the bamboo stick.
With her supernatural awareness, she was able to sense a powerful Fire Essence on the surface of the bamboo stick.
While it seemed strange that fire could co-exist with a bamboo stick, there was a deeper meaning behind this.
Of course, Luo Qingwu could clearly sense that a clouded, but real consciousness in the bamboo stick. It was as if it had a life on its own.
This was evidently a magic treasure.
Lin Feng smiled. This was the Seven Treasures Bamboo Fire. After he flattened the Samsara Sect Path of the Heaven-Born, he realized that many of their treasures were unsuitable for him. Hence, he exchanged these treasures through the system and obtained the Seven Treasures Bamboo Fire Cane.
It was rather expensive as he needed more than one Gestation level magic treasure to get it. However, it was worth his effort.
“After every one of you form your nascent soul, I will bestow a magic treasure unto you. This Seven Treasures Bamboo Fire Cane is yours, Qingwu,” said Lin Feng, “This magic treasure is special in its own way and is immensely powerful. Furthermore, it is very suitable for you.”
Luo Qingwu was touched. When she took the Seven Treasures Bamboo Fire Cane, she ran her fingers through it carefully and nodded her head furiously, “Thank you master. With this treasure, regardless whether I cultivate the Seven Fires Sky-Reaching Sword or if I use it in the future, it will surely be useful.”
By cultivating the Four Appearances Heaven-Cleaving Script, Luo Qingwu was able to obtain the Great Four Appearances Saint-Slaying Sword. Other than the Heavenly Wind Formless Sword, she was able to master three other types of sword techniques.
As a Pure Yin Entity, cultivation to her was extremely easy at times.
However, it was because of her status that made it difficult for her to cultivate the Seven Fires Sky-Reaching Sword. While she was able to understand the mantra behind it, it was hard for her to wield it.
Today, with the Seven Treasures Bamboo Fire Cane, that problem was resolved. Not only did it help her wield the Seven Fires Sky-Reaching Sword, she would also find it easier to use this move in the future.
Lin Feng smiled and nodded his head. While he did not personally cultivate it, he was very particular about the types of magic treasure he gave to his disciples. He tried to fit their requirements and make up for their shortfalls to further strengthen them.
Luo Qingwu went back to the Qingwu Pavilion to cultivate her magic treasure and nurture her nascent soul. Lin Feng turned his attention back onto the White Tiger Grand Sage and the gate to the Starry Sea.
At the same time, Lin Feng started to pay attention to the Barren Expanses, the Emperor of the Dead, the Great Void Sect, the Ancient Longevity World and other major powers.
The sudden visit by the Great Void Sect to the Ancient Longevity World informed the Ancients that the tear in the Netherworld Sea was related to the Emperor of the Undead. Lin Feng tried his best to derive the connection between the two of them. He was sure that the Great Void Sect’s visit to the Ancient Longevity World was somehow related to the Emperor of the Dead.
The Ancient Longevity World had something that the Emperor of the Dead wanted. The Great Void Sect wanted to use it as a bait to lure and kill him.
However, the Emperor of the Dead probably realized it already. It’s either that or he deemed the item in the Ancient Longevity World not worth the risk. After a long time, there was no movement from the Emperor of the Dead’s side.
“It’s either that or he’s planning something. Will he act afterwards?” Lin Feng thought.
