Chapter 196 – Lightning Inheritance (2)
The forty-eighth day.
This generation’s Floating Crest Trial came to an official end and Zhao Feng’s name shook the entire Clan. He might not be a Core disciple, but he was definitely one of the most-known.
At the same time, the rumours of his ‘arrogance’, ‘cunningness’ and ‘selfishness’ spread. There were rumours of many Core disciples being fooled by him. However, it didn’t end here.
On the second day.
First Elder announced that he was taking Zhao Feng in as a core disciple of his. This news once again shook the entire Clan, especially at the high level.
First Elder was without a doubt the most knowledgeable and powerful Elder. By promoting Zhao Feng to his official disciple, it had made the latter one of the disciples not to offend. Therefore, Zhao Feng’s enemies were wary and scared at the same time.
The second day after the trial ended.
Zhao Feng went to the Clan Mission Division and he returned the primal crystal stones of debt and he bought the three ‘Luohou arrows’.
When old man Zhang saw Zhao Feng, the former couldn’t help but sigh. The two had made a bet whether or not Zhao Feng could participate in the Trial.
Not only did Zhao Feng manage to enter, he had also come first and beat the ten-thousand year record. Zhao Feng couldn’t help but be excited after he bought the Luohou arrows. The arrows were high quality and they were comparable to a Middle grade Mortal weapon.
Only by using it with the Luohou Bow would its full power be released.
Zhao Feng lightly pulled back the string and a dark green arrow pierced the air so fast that the naked eye couldn’t even see it.
“Hmm? When did the Luohou Bow have such strong ice attributes?” Old man Zhang was slightly dazed.
The arrow just then definitely contained a large amount of coldness.
The Luohou arrow returned automatically.
Zhao Feng nodded his head in satisfaction and he handed over the Luohou Bow over to Vice Head Zhang.
On the Luohou Bow was a blue lotus. Old man Zhang reached out and held the bow. It was cold and the materials that the bow was made of had even undergone a change.
“No wonder you were the first place in the Floating Crest Trial. The power of the Luohou Bow now is not much weaker than a High grade Mortal weapon. The ice attribute is even more precious than a few High grade mortal weapons.” Vice Head Zhang said.
Zhao Feng was slightly regretful. The ice arrows in the trial had all been used. They had the effect of ice sealing when used with the Luohou Bow.
Of course, in terms of pure power, the Luohou Bow was better with the Luohou arrows. Zhao Feng estimated that if he fired the Luohou Bow with all his strength, it would cause critical threats to those at the 5th Sky of the Ascended Realm.
“It cost twice as much as True Force when using the Luohou Bow and Luohou arrows together.”
Zhao Feng’s eyebrows furrowed. Everything must have its own weakness and forte.
Zhao Feng asked old man Zhang about how to fix his Yin Shadow Cloak. The Yin Shadow Cloak was Zhao Feng’s most precious item. Its value was ten times more than a Spiritual weapon.
Spiritual weapons had a cultivation requirement and those at the Ascended Realm couldn’t even control it. However, Inheritance grade treasures could grow with the user. How rare was that?
Zhao Feng had gathered most of the materials needed to fix the Yin Shadow Cloak but there were some things that he still needed.
Apart from that, there was another important condition.
“You mean the blacksmith has to be a Grandmaster and is at the True Spirit Realm?” Old man Zhang asked.
“That’s right!” Zhao Feng nodded his head.
“That’s troublesome. In the thirteen clans, there isn’t even a Grandmaster Blacksmith.” Old man Zhang smiled bitterly.
Zhao Feng was extremely surprised – the thirteen countries didn’t even have one Grandmaster Blacksmith?
“If you really need one, there’s a Grandmaster Blacksmith called ‘Yan Ye’ in the Metal Dragon Country. However, in the northern continent, a Grandmaster Blacksmith has high standing. Even those at the True Spirit Realm can’t afford to hire him, so how could the Broken Moon Clan.” Old man Zhang shook his head.
It looks like this isn’t just any trouble. Zhao Feng clucked his tongue. He didn’t think that Grandmaster Blacksmiths were so rare and had such high status.
Vice Head Zhang meant that even if one used the title of the ‘Broken Moon Clan’ to try and hire him, the latter might not even care.
The thirteen Cloud countries were between the Sky Rich and Metal Dragon countries. These two were powerful existences and the factions behind them had extreme power.
The two were engaged in a continuous war and the fight would be settled by the powers backing the two countries.
Once any of them won, they could sweep the thirteen countries easily.
“Grandmaster Yan Ye comes from the power backing the Metal Dragon Country and he has connections with the Heavenly Yuan Sect, one of the top ten powers of the continent. The latter is one of the peak factions that can decide the lives of many smaller clans with just a thought.”
Old man Zhang’s expression was solemn. He was obviously trying to warn Zhao Feng.
Country, factions, ten great powers…
Zhao Feng suppressed the excitement in his heart. It seemed that the world was far bigger than what he imagined. In the Green Flower Continent, these ten powers held the ability to choose who lived and who died. Even the Scarlet Moon Demonic Religion was defeated by the ten great powers.
“Relax, teacher. We’re not up to there yet. Disciple believes that as long as there’s enough profit, even a Grandmaster Blacksmith will forsake his dignity.” Zhao Feng was extremely confident.
After saying goodbye to old man Zhang, Zhao Feng went to see old man Guan. The two had cared for him and this was something that Zhao Feng would never forget. After exiting the trial, Zhao Feng had a number of resources which he gave to the two teachers.
Zhao Feng went to the see the outer disciples and no one dared to breathe loudly when they saw Zhao Feng.
It was just that the name of Zhao Feng was too famous right now. Apparently, even Core disciples had been crushed underneath his feet.
Zhao Feng came here to see Yang Qingshan and Nan Gongfan.
“Brother Zhao, I can’t believe you’ve reached such a high stand. First in the trial and a disciple of First Elder.”
Seeing Zhao Feng, Yang Qingshan and Nan Gongfan were both excited. It was obvious that they had heard of Zhao Feng’s actions.
The latter smiled and asked: “How are you two doing? Is anyone bullying you?”
“Nope! How would they dare to?”
“Even inner disciples are scared of your name. Who dares to offend us?”
Zhao Feng understood that the two had considerable good lives as outer disciples and they had both reached the top twenty outer disciples, with Yang Qingshan close to breaking through to the Ascended Realm.
Before he left.
Zhao Feng gave the two a bunch of Spiritual pills which would easily allow them to reach the Ascended Realm.
Around a day or two later.
Zhao Feng took care of all the troublesome stuff. Most of the compensation by the Clan had been exchanged. There were many types of compensation.
One, by compensating primal crystal stones.
Zhao Feng had 8000 low grade primal crystal stones, which was equivalent to 800 hundred thousand substandard primal crystal stones.
Although this was a large amount, it was nowhere enough when compared to Spiritual weapons and Spiritual tier skills.
Two, compensation by resources. Zhao Feng had the ability to take out as many resources as a Vice Head.
The monthly allowance he got was more than the expense of a few years worth of savings by normal disciples.
Three, the right to enter the Hollow Building whenever he wanted and to browse any Peak tier Mortal skill.
There were a total of ten compensations and one of them even gave Zhao Feng his own building. The latter was speechless – now wasn’t the time to be high-key and relax.
He remained in his room.
For some time.
Zhao Feng was extremely low-key and he didn’t see anyone.
In the depths of his mind.
The three layered building representing the Lightning Inheritance appeared. Zhao Feng began to try and fully gain comprehension from the first floor of the Lightning Inheritance, even if it was a tiny bit. WIth such a powerful inheritance, he needed nothing else.
Firstly. He was to perfect the Lightning Wind Palm and this would become the skill to build on.
For several days, the scenery of lightning appeared in Zhao Feng’s mind. From a tiny spark to a thunderous storm.
The Lightning Inheritance had ‘lightning’ in it, and with Zhao Feng’s comprehension abilities, he could only learn the edges of it.
It was lucky that his current goal was to perfect the Lightning Wind Palm and make the latter the path to understand the ‘Lightning Inheritance’.
Several days later.
Zhao Feng’s Lightning Wind Palm had reached the peak fourth level. It was still the fourth level, but the power was double to what it was before!
“The Lightning Inheritance is indeed the best inheritance of the Floating Crest Palace. After the changes in the Lightning Wind Palm by me, the danger involved has decreased while its power have increased. It’s even better than many High tier Mortal skills.”
Zhao Feng was overjoyed. With his ‘Lightning Inheritance’, any skill under the Spiritual tier would be no use of him. At best, they would be used as support.
In the span of ten days time.
Zhao Feng had managed to comprehend a tiny bit of Lightning and he was able to merge it into his movement skill.
After it was merged, Zhao Feng’s explosive speed was lightning-quick and he was full of agility when used with his Illusion Fish Picture.
“My movement can be considered to be perfect.” Zhao Feng was extremely pleased.
After that, Zhao Feng even merged Lightning into his Heavenly Wind True Force, which made the true force contain sparks of lightning, increasing its speed and damage. With Lightning as the foundation, Zhao Feng’s skills had all been improved.
Zhao Feng went into secluded cultivation. He had already reached the peak 3rd Sky in the trial and he was already considered middle-high in the inner disciples. However, Zhao Feng knew that this was nothing in the Three Clan Party.
Zhao Feng now had control over a large number of resources, pills and primal crystal stones… There was nothing he didn’t have!
Five days later.
Zhao Feng broke through to the 4th Sky of the Ascended Realm and the aura caused the energy nearby to fluctuate.
Lin Fan, Yun Mengxiang, and co. nearby were all stunned.
“Brother Zhao is indeed a step faster than me.”
Lin Fan, who was also trying to reach the 4th Sky, couldn’t but smile and shake his head.
