Chapter 867 – Key
The Water of Wind Lightning that rippled around Zhao Feng’s body was like the ocean. It was continuous and as smooth as a sapphire.
Zhao Feng had finally cultivated the first element of the Five Elemental Wind Lightning to its peak. His Wind Lightning Technique had reached the limit of the 6th level and had even slightly touched the 7th level. A tiny wisp of Life and Wood could be felt within the Water of Wind Lightning. This was the 7th level – the Wood of Wind Lightning.
“The first three levels of the Five Elemental Wind Lightning Technique are the foundation of Wind Lightning. The fourth to sixth levels are the first of the five elements, and from the 7th level onward, each level creates a new element….”
Joy appeared on Zhao Feng’s face. Each new element would increase his strength and allow him to use more techniques.
The five elements were as such: from Metal came Water, from Water came Wood, from Wood came Fire, from Fire came Earth, and from Earth came Metal.
He could’ve chosen any of the five elements for his first, and Zhao Feng picked Water. After Water came Wood; therefore, Zhao Feng’s second element of the Five Elemental Wind Lightning Technique was the Wood of Wind Lightning.
Zhao Feng was very surprised that he was able to summon some Wood of Wind Lightning already. After all, his cultivation was only at the late stages of the Great Origin Core Realm. In theory, he needed to be a half-step King at the minimum to form Wood of Wood Lightning.
Zhao Feng soon knew why after thinking about it for a while.
The Hundred Origin Fruit Juice contains the essence of Wood and various grasses. After all, this fruit juice is refined with more than a hundred types of peak-grade nectar, Zhao Feng thought.
Zhao Feng couldn’t help but be expectant of what effect the Hundred Origin Sacred Honey would have if the Hundred Origin Fruit Juice already had such an effect.
Of course, for the moment, it still wasn’t suitable for Zhao Feng to use the Hundred Origin Sacred Honey because that would be a waste. The Hundred Origin Fruit Juice was enough for now.
Thinking up to there, Zhao Feng took another couple gulps of the Hundred Origin Fruit Juice. He had a few barrels worth of Hundred Origin Fruit Juice.
Time passed by, and the aura of Wood coming from Zhao Feng was becoming stronger. Four or five days later, a faint green Wood of Wind Lightning appeared on the surface of Zhao Feng’s body, and the Crystal Core within his body also became slightly bigger.
“Hmm?” Nan Gongsheng, who was also in seclusion, twitched his nose. Zhao Feng gave off a surging aura of nature, and the grass and wood around him was more populated than before.
“Late stages of the Great Origin Core Realm.” Zhao Feng opened his eyes as a refreshing aura overtook him. This aura washed over Nan Gongsheng.
Nan Gongsheng took a breath as he gave Zhao Feng a deep glance. The coldness on his face smoothed out a bit.
“The Wood of Wind Lightning can protect against poison and has better recovery abilities. At the same time, it has pretty good damage against living things, and it has a strong eroding effect.”
Zhao Feng felt this new type of Wind Lightning.
The Wood of Wind Lightning wasn’t very strong offensively; it was even weaker than the Water of Wind Lightning in that regard. However, its supportive abilities were better.
A green mist formed in the air above Zhao Feng’s head as lightning crackled. With the help of his Emperor Intent and various resources, Zhao Feng’s Wood of Wind Lightning started to gather.
At the same time, the 7th level of the Wind Lightning Technique was able to refine his Sacred Lightning Body even better.
Over the next few days, the aura of Zhao Feng’s Wood of Wind Lightning started to fade away. On the other hand, the aura of his body started to rise.
Zhao Feng’s Golden Kun Sacred Lightning Body was infinitely close to the early stages of the 5th level. Once he broke through, he would be able to suppress Domain-level Kings and even fight against Peak-tier Kings with just his physical body alone.
On top of that, Zhao Feng’s cultivation was also rising.
It could be said that Zhao Feng had no real bottleneck right now, including his cultivation and Sacred Lightning Body. If he was willing, Zhao Feng could break through to the Void God Realm with a month or two of seclusion, but Zhao Feng couldn’t do that. He couldn’t waste all of his precious time to cultivate when he was in Xie Yang Palace.
“Zhao Feng, there’s only one month left till the Divine Illusion Dimension ends,” Nan Gongsheng’s voice sounded.
In the last half a month’s time, Nan Gongsheng’s power hadn’t become much stronger, but the flow of it was much smoother.
In terms of pure power, Nan Gongsheng had already exceeded the level of Emperors. What was important to him was how to properly utilize this power.
Firstly, it was obvious that Nan Gongsheng wasn’t able to clash against the Bee Empress for very long. Even though the Bee Empress was on the same level as a Sacred Lord, one had to know that the Bee Empress didn’t even specialize in battle and had almost no offensive techniques. Only its state of existence and raw power had reached the requirements of a Sacred Lord. If Nan Gongsheng had met a true Sacred Lord, he wouldn’t have been able to fight back at all.
“There’s still one month left? We need to use this time wisely.”
Zhao Feng stood up. There was more than enough time to cultivate back in the continent zone.
“I really want to meet the Bee Empress again.”
A purple-red-and-silver-colored light appeared around Nan Gongsheng. The terrifying aura of this power seemed to freeze space itself.
“In terms of pure power, you aren’t weaker than Sacred Lords, but your level of comprehension is too low.” Zhao Feng shook his head.
Nan Gongsheng’s power was indeed very strong. Even the Wood of Wind Lightning in Zhao Feng’s body, which was comparable to the power of a King, started to freeze and felt hard to circulate.
Unfortunately, Nan Gongsheng’s Intent and mastery weren’t enough, so he could only use 30-40% of his power, and that was under the assumption that he had improved over the last couple days.
Hearing that, Nan Gongsheng became somewhat frustrated, but he gave up on finding the Bee Empress. If they didn’t have the Misty Spatial World, Zhao Feng and company may have all been killed already.
“For now, I don’t need to worry about increasing my strength. At the very least, I’ll wait till my soul reaches the level of an Emperor,” Nan Gongsheng decided.
He could still see the difference between himself and Zhao Feng right now. If he met the Left Eyed Heavenly Emperor at the peak of his previous life, Nan Gongsheng would lose.
Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng started to travel around Xie Yang Palace under a layer of silver and purple. The powerful aura from the duo made the hearts of nearby geniuses and elites jump.
Luckily, the unrivalled Demonic Duo didn’t steal anything, and the fake duo didn’t appear again.
In reality, after obtaining the inheritance of the Evil God, Nan Gongsheng’s personality had changed and he wanted to steal from anyone and everyone, but he was stopped by Zhao Feng.
Zhao Feng could sense that Nan Gongsheng’s personality was slowly changing, but this was a “natural process.” Zhao Feng couldn’t do anything to stop it.
Time flew by quickly, and over the next month, Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng went around to find more resources. The only problem was that the God’s Forbidden Array was extremely stable now, so they couldn’t enter the important areas.
It was hard to find anything similar to the Hundred Origin Sacred Honey. At the very best, the things they found were comparable to the Green Water Sky Lotuses.
There were also some fortunes that Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng weren’t strong enough to handle. For example, there was a Spiritual Pet Garden within Xie Yang Palace, and many of the creatures inside were Sacred Lords. The powerful auras from this place made Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng not dare to approach.
There were also some dangerous places that could instantly kill Emperors and injure Sacred Lords. The two didn’t want to play with their lives.
Eventually, Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng stood on top of a building and held their breaths.
“Hmm?” Zhao Feng realized that the dimension they were in was starting to fade. The bricks, grasses, and wood in their sight started to become more transparent, as if they weren’t real.
At the same time, all the other Kings also realized this.
“The Divine Illusion Dimension is about to leave….” Xuanyuan Wen murmured.
After calculating the time, they realized that they had been here for several months.
“There’s probably a few days left.” Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng looked at each other.
The Divine Illusion Dimension was an extremely unique dimension that connected with other places.
Another half a day later, the dimension started to show signs of becoming more transparent.
“Why do I feel that everything I experienced in the Divine Illusion Dimension wasn’t even real?” Zhao Feng’s eyebrows furrowed.
Even his God’s Spiritual Eye couldn’t see through this dimension. This feeling was similar to the Fan Lun Ancient Sound Palace when he couldn’t see through Liu Qinxin on the wall.
“According to the Evil God Mental Thought Body, the Divine Illusion Dimension is a unique world created from the Dao of Illusion, similar to your Illusion Maze Domain. Furthermore, the Ancient God wasn’t actually the creator of this dimension. There were many other Gods here, and some experts have guessed that the Divine Illusion Dimension is a broken dimension left behind when the Ancient Era shattered.” Nan Gongsheng inspected the dimension with a weird light in his eyes.
At this moment in time, Zhao Feng felt as if the physical objects that he had obtained were both fake and real at the same time.
Zhao Feng suddenly remembered the Ancient Dream Realm in the dimension of his left eye. To a certain degree, these two dimensions had similarities.
As time passed, the dimension they were in started to become fainter and more transparent. Most of the people were waiting to return, but on this day, some shocking news spread across Xie Yang Palace.
“Quick! Stop the Blue Serpent King!” a voice sounded.
“The Blue Serpent King and the Thousand Changing Illusionist Dragon have obtained the key to the Yuan Sealing Divine Chains!”
Fear and panic spread amongst the humans.
What!? Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng also jumped up in fright by this disturbance.
Right at this moment:
Sou! Sou! Sou!
The group from the Ji Family arrived.
“Purple-Haired Demonic Duo?” Ji Lan paused for a moment before urgency appeared on her face. “The Blue Serpent King and the Thousand Changing Illusionist Dragon were hiding amongst the humans, and those two thieves used the imperials to obtain the key to the Yuan Sealing Divine Chains.”
“This is going to be troublesome.” Zhao Feng’s eyebrows furrowed.
“There’s nothing we can do.” Ji Lan was about to cry. “Apart from you, me, and a couple others, no one else’s eye-bloodline can see through the Thousand Changing Illusionist Dragon. Most of the people can’t even see their movements.”
