“Su Mo, at the cultivation realm we are at now, even though our cultivation skills are very high and we do not lack for resources, our progress will still be very slow!” Sikong Yan said.
“Correct! I have reached Lv 7 the Martial Royal Realm. It’s extremely difficult for me to raise it to a higher level!” Zhan Luang nodded in agreement.
“Su Mo, this can’t be rushed. Fortunately, there are still a few years before the Trial Testers arrive!” Jiang Fengran said.
They all spoke. Their cultivations had actually risen very quickly already, they were at least 10 times faster than common martial artists.
For example, Qing Ya, who had the lowest cultivation, raised from the Lv 3 Martial King Realm to the Lv 8 Martial King Realm in two years.
Five levels in two years was already very shocking to the outside world.
“Alright! I’ll give you a hand!” Su Mo said heavily after a long time.
Three years had quickly gone by.
Amidst the South Sea.
On the surface of the boundless ocean, a bright sword radiance shot into the sky.
The sword radiance was incomparably sharp and it shot up over 300,000 meters, straight into the heavens. The entire ocean was filled with the majestic sword power.
Holding the Billion Demonic Sword, Su Mo stood on the surface of the ocean. He gave a gentle cry and the Demonic Sword swung out ferociously.
In a flash, a terrifying three-colored sword Qi slashed across the surface of the ocean. It sliced across thousands of meters and it seemed to split the boundless ocean in two.
The sword Qi sliced through and the water parted to either side, revealing the ocean floor thousands of meters below. The water surged up 30,000 meters and formed sky reaching waves. Earth-shatteringly, it surged into the distance.
Many demonic beasts in the sea shattered into pieces under this attack. Large amounts of blood gathered toward the Billion Demonic Sword and made it glow with brighter sanguine light.
After a short while, Su Mo withdrew his sword and everything returned to calmness.
“It’s finally at the Great Completion!” Su Mo let out a long breath. After five years, he had finally trained the Grand Firmament Swordplay into the Great Completion Realm.
It deserved to be an Imperial Upper martial arts technique because it was very difficult to cultivate. Even with his comprehension, he had practiced for five years. If it were a common martial artist, the man would probably not realize the Great Completion even in 20 years.
In the five years, Su Mo’s cultivation had only risen by three levels. At the moment, he was at the Lv 8 Martial Royal Realm.
Compared to his previous rate of improvement, he was moving at a snail’s pace.
But even to get to the Lv 8 Martial Royal Realm was not a simple matter.
Because for Su Mo to raise one level of his cultivation, the resources needed had reached an incredible amount.
When he rose from the Lv 5 to the Lv 6 Martial Royal Realm, he had used up all of the resources in the Firmament Palace and almost had it that the Palace could not run anymore.
When he rose from the Lv 6 to the Lv 7 Martial Royal Realm, he had ruthlessly exploited all of the major powers in the Firmament World.
And from the Lv 7 to the Lv 8, there had been a full three years gap.
During the three years, Su Mo killed countless demonic beasts and collected countless demonic elixirs. In addition, there were the resources the Firmament Palace had scrapped together for him. He had only broken through the realm less than a month ago.
It could be said that Su Mo’s cultivation had caused countless major powers in the Firmament Palace to go broke.
The current Firmament World was lack of resource. There were a limited number of Supreme Spiritual Stones and they had long been used up by Su Mo. He could mostly only use Upper and Medium Spiritual Stones to cultivate.
And now that Su Mo had reached the Lv 8 Martial Royal Realm, even if someone gave him 30,000,000,000 Supreme Spiritual Stones, it would still be very difficult for him to break into the Lv 9 Martial Royal Realm.
Although his cultivation had risen to the limit of resources, Su Mo had changed his direction. He spent most of his time in cultivating martial arts techniques.
Not only had he cultivated the Grand Firmament Swordplay to Great Completion, but he had also cultivated an Imperial Medium body move called the “Shadowless Magic” to the Great Completion.
Not only this, but he had also cultivated his Phantom Avatar to the Grand Completion.
Other than this, Su Mo also asked all the powers to collect Blood-striped seeds for him and he had finally found five.
He then created five more Natal Spiritual Swords. He now had 29 swords.
He had also cultivated the Grand Stars Sword Formation which was made of 28 Spiritual Swords. It was more than two times powerful than 24 Minor Constellation Sword Formation.
Furthermore, after Su Mo’s many years of nurture, the Natal Spiritual Swords were vastly improved in both quality and might from a few years ago.
Presently, all of his unique skills had been refined. Compared to a few years ago, they could not be spoken of at the same time.
During these years, he had also tried to once again meld the elemental Dark Force. However, no matter how many times he tried, he always failed.
In the end, he had given up the thought of melding elemental Dark Forces.
After a short while, Su Mo’s figure flashed and he disappeared without a trace.
Inside the Firmament Palace.
Su Mo sat on the Emperor’s throne. Sikong Yan and the other eight masters of the nine palaces sat to his either side.
Presently, all nine of them, other than Cai Yun and Qing Ya, had reached the Lv 9 Martial Royal Realm.
They were able to improve so quickly all because of Su Mo’s repeated help. Even Cai Yun and Qing Ya, who had the lowest cultivations, had already reached the Lv 8 Martial Royal Realm.
In the hall below them, hundreds of people sat densely.
Everyone was an elder of the Firmament Palace and Advanced Martial King.
Among them, there were four Emperors-to-be. They were Di Shi, Hai Mingjiang, Deputy Pavilion Leader Qian, and Huatai Mountain.
Half a year ago, the First Elder of the Emperor Xuan Palace, Huatai Mountain, had also risen to the Emperor-to-be Realm.
“Everyone, the great calamity is upon us. Do you have any suggestions?” Su Mo’s gaze was like lightning as he swept it across the crowd.
It was absolutely silent in the hall. After a moment, Hai Mingjiang opened his mouth first and said, “Palace Master, the great calamity happens once a millennium. Logically speaking, there are still two years but there is a small fluctuation for the time the Trial Testers arrive. It could be pushed back one or two years, or it could be one or two years early. So we should prepare early.”
“Right!” Su Mo listened with his chin in his hand. Indeed, there were still two years until the major calamity but the Trial Testers could very well arrive early. They had to be prepared.
“Everyone, you are all well-learned. Do you know from where will the Trial Testers fall in Firmament World?” Su Mo asked.
“This is uncertain. According to past records, the Sorcerer Tribe will open up a passage from the outside world to the Firmament World. The passage could appear anywhere!”
Di Shi looked and said in a deep voice, “They have a special way to search out where the warriors of the Firmament World are and will directly begin their killing spree!”
Hai Mingjiang’s expression was also solemn as he said, “Palace Master, the people of the Netherworld Sect had been in hiding for many years without a trace, we have to be cautious!”
Su Mo listened and lowered his head in thought. Wu Sen was a descendant of the Sorcerer tribe. When the time came, the people of the Netherworld Devil Sect may act together with the Trial Testers.
The strength of the Netherworld Devil Sect was nothing to be afraid of but they could very likely act as the Trial Testers eyes and ears.
If that was the case, it would be difficult if he wanted to catch the Trial Testers by surprise.
