Chapter 608 – Sovereign
Although the dried source of power had crumbled and the amount of power he could hold was reduced to 90%, the half-step True Yuan in his body had undergone an incredible change.
Zhao Feng’s Purple Destruction Wind Lightning had reached 80-90% mastery, and the aura of Destruction contained within was several times stronger.
“Although it’s still half-step True Yuan, its aura isn’t much different from True Yuan.”
Zhao Feng felt the wisp of Purple Destruction from his palm, and the difference wasn’t limited to just that.
This also concerned a change in the origin of his power.
“Breaking through to the Origin Core Realm in the Ancient Dream Realm means that I probably absorbed some of the power of the Wind and Lightning from that place.”
Zhao Feng’s eyes twinkled. He had a weird feeling; although the Purple Destruction Wind Lightning came from the Wind Lightning Emperor’s inheritance, his source of Wind and Lightning had undergone an unknown change.
Even the Wind Lightning Emperor probably wouldn’t know what type of path Zhao Feng would walk on the road of Wind Lightning.
Maybe this was what was meant by rising higher after a fall.
Zhao Feng found that, although the quantity had dropped by 10%, everything else had been changed drastically.
“Let’s start again.”
Zhao Feng sat down and circulated his energy.
The accident earlier made his originally smooth process fail, but Zhao Feng didn’t feel defeated at all; instead, he simply started the process of breaking through again.
The purple-colored source within his dantian and its terrifying aura started to gather.
It could only gather; Zhao Feng had no ability to compress it.
After the change, the half-step True Yuan’s quality had become extremely high, and its power was several times stronger than the True Yuan of a normal Origin Core Realm.
Half a day later, the purple source started to dry.
Zhao Feng jumped up in fright.
After the change, the quality of the source had become too strong. It surpassed the original Wind Lightning Emperor’s inheritance’s expectations.
Zhao Feng was suspicious that his source of power had already reached the True Yuan level. If he just let it cool for a while, it would automatically dry right away.
Half a day later, Zhao Feng’s source started to compress into a Core Center the size of a bean.
The Core Center was a dark, glittery purple.
“I’ve successfully formed a Core Center?”
Zhao Feng was slightly dumbfounded. The entire process of forming his Core Center was completed in one step.
The instant the Core Center formed, Zhao Feng’s energy and essence started to travel throughout his body.
At the same time, purple clouds started to gather and form above Zhao Feng’s room, and terrifying lightning enveloped everything within one mile.
The auras of Wind and Lightning formed a terrifying pressure, and everyone in the hotel trembled uneasily.
“What powerful Wind and Lightning. There’s also an aura of Destruction.”
“It looks like someone broke through to the Origin Core Realm.”
Sighs, exclamations, and admirations came from the hotel.
The radius of this Sovereign’s intent wasn’t big – it was actually even smaller than most – but the pressure was almost comparable to a Great Origin Core Realm.
“The aura of this Sovereign is unusual.”
There were other Sovereigns in the hotel, and they also had the experience of breaking through, but the aura from this Core Center made even them feel uneasy.
Within the room:
“Origin Core Realm? Did I break through successfully? But… the Core Center I condensed is much smaller than normal Sovereigns.”
Zhao Feng murmured.
Indeed, the Core Center he condensed was smaller by about half compared to a normal Core Center in the books.
This meant that Zhao Feng’s cultivation was only at the early stages of the Small Origin Core Realm, but from the aura and strength he could feel, it should be stronger than middle-stage Small Origin Core Realms.
Furthermore, Zhao Feng’s source of power had merged with the intent and comprehension of the Purple Destruction Wind Lightning, which had reached a 80-90% mastery.
Therefore, the aura from Zhao Feng was blurry. It seemed to be an early-stage Small Origin Core Realm and a middle-stage Small Origin Core Realm at the same time.
“I’ll be able to break through to the middle-stage Small Origin Core Realm as long as my Core Center becomes bigger. The late-stage Small Origin Core Realm isn’t very far away from me either.”
Zhao Feng let out a long breath and slowly concealed his aura. After “rising higher after the fall,” his source of power had become extremely pure. Even though Zhao Feng had broken through quickly, none of his True Yuan had been released. This meant that, when he concealed his true aura, it would seem like he was only at the early stages of the Small Origin Core Realm.
“Congratulations on breaking through to the Origin Core Realm, Master.”
“Congratulations on the breakthrough, Captain!”
The skeletal Division Leader, Li Yunya, Loulan Zhishui, and company had already arrived and were waiting outside the room.
Sovereigns were already supreme figures in some normal islands, and they were considered experts in the limitless ocean that would be met with respect.
Zhao Feng smiled faintly and walked outside the room.
Many Spiritual Senses scanned over, and the expressions of the owners all changed. It was obvious that none of them expected the new Sovereign to be so young.
The skeletal Division Leader, Li Yunya, and Loulan Zhishui all had complex expressions and different emotions.
Amongst them, the skeletal Division Leader’s emotions were heavy, and it felt helpless. Zhao Feng’s cultivation was catching up to its own. Even when Zhao Feng was at the half-step Origin Core Realm, he was already stronger than it. Now it couldn’t see through Zhao Feng at all.
Li Yunya and Loulan Zhishui were stunned at Zhao Feng’s potential and talent.
Both of them were among the top in terms of talent.
Loulan Zhishui was the greatest prodigy in the Eight Desolate Mountains, and she had a status similar to Yu Tianhao’s in the Azure Flower Continent.
Li Yunya was a once-in-a-thousand-years genius from the two-and-a-half-star sect, the Six Ring Palace.
“To be able to break through to the Origin Core Realm at such a young age… probably only those from the Spiritual Sacred Lands can be compared to him.”
Li Yunya felt that he wasn’t as good as Zhao Feng.
Zhao Feng looked around and watched everyone’s emotions. He had felt too many similar gazes on his path of cultivation, but a Sovereign was a supreme expert in the Azure Flower Continent; even Zhao Feng felt proud.
However, when he thought about the Pursuit of Death, Zhao Feng’s pride instantly disappeared.
A while later, Zhao Feng heard some reports from everyone in the room.
“The array flag for the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array was completed half a year ago, and the strength of the cursed ghost-corpses is approaching the half-step Origin Core Realm. A small number have even reached the half-step Origin Core Realm already….”
The skeletal Division Leader spoke first.
After spending a large amount of resources, the power of the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array had been improved to an entirely new level.
Zhao Feng nodded his head.
When the hundred ghost-corpses all reached the half-step Origin Core Realm and devoured the blood and essence of a hundred Sovereigns, there would be a new breakthrough.
Furthermore, Zhao Feng had another thought, which was to merge the Ancient Dream Realm aura into the cursed ghost-corpses, but that was just a thought for now. No actions would be done yet.
“Captain, the ship has been repaired and strengthened. The sailors are all cultivating within the Void Ocean Spiritual Palace.”
Loulan Zhishui said.
The skeletal Division Leader and Loulan Zhishui both finished their reports.
Everyone’s gaze finally landed on Li Yunya, and even Zhao Feng couldn’t help but expectant.
Everyone’s tasks had been smooth, and Li Yunya had an important task.
News of the Spiritual Zone Teleportation Array was placed on the same priority as breaking through to the Origin Core Realm.
“Captain, this Void Ocean Spiritual Palace is in the territory of the Eternally Sealed island zone and, according to the news I got from the Ten Thousand News Building, this Void Ocean Spiritual Palace also has a Spiritual Zone Teleportation array that is connected to a couple dozen Void Ocean Spiritual Palaces in the surround island zones…”
Li Yunya smiled and said.
The Ten Thousand News Building was a place in the Void Ocean Spiritual Palace where news was sold.
As long as one had enough Primal Crystal Stones, there wasn’t much news the Ten Thousand News Building couldn’t tell you.
“As expected… there’s a Spiritual Zone Teleportation Array in the Void Ocean Spiritual Palace.”
Zhao Feng continued to look at Li Yunya.
A Spiritual Zone Teleportation Array could normally span a distance of at least an entire island zone. Even some two-star sects didn’t that ability.
The extremely big Spiritual Zone Teleportation Arrays could even teleport between Spiritual Sacred Lands.
“It’s the same as the other Void Ocean Spiritual Palaces. The Void Ocean Spiritual Palace in the Eternally Sealed Islands Zone is controlled by the Void Ocean Spiritual Palace Lord, and one usually needs the approval of the Void Ocean Spiritual Palace Lord to use it.”
Li Yunya paused.
Eternally Sealed Void Ocean Spiritual Palace Lord.
Void Ocean Spiritual Palaces were scattered across the limitless ocean, and almost every island zone had one.
The ruler of the Void Ocean Spiritual Palace in the Eternally Sealed Islands Zone was the Eternally Sealed Palace Lord.
“Is there any way to make the Eternally Sealed Palace Lord let us use it?”
Zhao Feng asked.
He knew that the Spiritual Zone Teleportation Arrays were usually reserved for only those from the Spiritual Sacred Lands, and they weren’t open to the public.
“That’s right, the only way is to somehow make the Eternally Sealed Palace Lord let us use it. Only he has the ability to let us do so.”
Li Yunya said.
Over the past few days, Li Yunya had asked around for the Eternally Sealed Palace Lord’s hobbies and attitude.
“The cultivation of the Eternally Sealed Palace Lord has reached the half-step Void God Realm, and being a Palace Lord, he is extremely rich. He’s so rich that his wealth surpasses even some Void God Realms. Therefore, it’s almost impossible to move him through treasures or weapons. His battle-power is almost at the Void God Realm, and not many people can threaten him….”
Li Yunya spoke in a solemn tone.
Hearing that, Zhao Feng’s eyebrows furrowed.
The Eternally Sealed Palace Lord’s strength, status, and wealth had all reached the maximum. Nothing seemed to be able to move him.
“Luckily, I found a breakthrough point. The Eternally Sealed Palace Lord has some hobbies.”
Li Yunya then smiled.
“Hmm? Breakthrough point?”
Zhao Feng was immediately interested. Li Yunya was indeed capable.
“But I’d like to spar with Captain first.”
Li Yunya’s words took a twist.
Spar with me?
Zhao Feng paused, and even Loulan Zhishui and company were surprised.
“I need to understand Captain’s strength in order to make a breakthrough with the Eternally Sealed Palace Lord. Of course, I have to admit that I’m also personally interested in how strong Captain is after breaking through to the Origin Core Realm.”
