Chapter 1056: Cultivating
Chapter 1056 – Cultivating
“This is the true power of the Mystic Light Realm!”
Sacred light and a dark yellow layer of lightning flashed around Zhao Feng’s body as Heaven and Earth suddenly froze and released a terrifying force of gravity.
The Earth of Wind Lightning didn’t give Zhao Feng a lot of offensive power, but it increased the strength of his defense by double. At the same time, it merged with the force of the Sacred Lightning Body and created a layer of gravity that could suppress everything within a certain range.
Weaker initial-stage Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lords would find it hard to even stand in front of Zhao Feng.
Furthermore, the ninth level of the Five Elemental Wind Lightning Technique contained many skills and secret techniques, most of which were used for defense. Zhao Feng took a look at them.
“I might be able to fight against Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss by myself now!”
Zhao Feng smiled confidently.
It wasn’t terrifying when someone suddenly obtained power. Only when they managed to actually control their power did they become terrifying.
When Zhao Feng just broke through to the Mystic Light Realm, he and the injured Nan Gongsheng weren’t a match for Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss, but now Zhao Feng was confident he could fight against Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss alone.
However, that was just a fight. He would need to use some important hidden cards if he wanted to gain an advantage and actually defeat Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss.
“Master, some people from Nine Darkness Palace are here!” Bi Qingyue sent a message to Zhao Feng through the Dark Heart Seal.
Zhao Feng smiled faintly and walked out.
Three Elders of Nine Darkness Palace stood in the great hall. The leader was Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss.
“Zhao Feng, I’m here to apologize to the Hall of Gods!” Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss said quickly in an awkward tone.
“I’m an upper echelon Elder of Nine Darkness Palace, but I used my own power to encourage the other Elders of Nine Darkness Palace to attack another three-star power. I hereby apologize to all the members of the Hall of Gods!” Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss said with extreme unwillingness, but this issue had indeed attracted the attention of the Grand Imperial Hall. The Grand Elder of Nine Darkness Palace had personally come out to punish Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss and forced him to apologize to the Hall of Gods.
Zhao Feng maintained a faint smile and waited for what Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss was going to say next. Zhao Feng wouldn’t accept it if it was just a verbal apology.
“Nine Darkness Palace is willing to hand over all the resources of Dark Sky Gate, the Black Radiant Clan, and the other forces to the Hall of Gods. I hope that you will let all the members of these forces go.” Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss told Zhao Feng what price Nine Darkness Palace was willing to pay.
Bi Qingyue was faintly shocked. Dark Sky Gate was a three-star power, and the Black Radiant Clan and company were all powerful forces that had at least two and a half stars, yet Nine Darkness Palace was willing to give it all to the Hall of Gods.
Zhao Feng was silent for a moment. He wasn’t satisfied with this apology.
“Zhao Feng, are you not satisfied with that?” Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss saw what Zhao Feng was thinking and asked with mockery.
Nine Darkness Palace wasn’t against Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss attacking the Hall of Gods. The problem was that Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss failed.
Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss believed that the Grand Elder wouldn’t just let go of the Hall of Gods. From his point of view, Zhao Feng was going to die eventually, and yet he was still acting so greedily.
“Those resources will only be enough to release the prisoners, but you attacking the Hall of Gods won’t end just like that!” Zhao Feng said and looked at Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss. The two Elders next to Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss became enraged.
Nine Darkness Palace had never been in such a bad situation before. They were willing to pay Zhao Feng, but he still wasn’t satisfied.
“Zhao Feng, don’t get too cocky!” Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss’ expression became cold. Nine Darkness Palace would only give the aforementioned resources as repayment. If Zhao Feng didn’t accept it, then Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss would have to pay out of his own pocket.
“This is the Hall of Gods!” Zhao Feng harrumphed coldly as the invisible power of his Intent suddenly descended. At the same time, a layer of golden-yellow Sacred light that flashed with arcs of lightning appeared around Zhao Feng’s body and radiated an invisible pressure.
This was the Hall of Gods, but Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss was acting in such a manner when he was supposed to be apologizing.
“What, this…!?” The two Sacred Lords next to Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss instantly felt the air become heavy as if mountains were crushing down on them, and the Mystic Light Sacred Power within their bodies seemed to freeze.
“This power…” Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss’ expression became ugly. Even his own Magnificent Power wasn’t much stronger than Zhao Feng’s. The two normal Sacred Lords next to him were completely unable to fight back against Zhao Feng’s power. Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss himself found it slightly difficult to breathe, but since he was in the Hall of Gods, he couldn’t do anything.
Bi Qingyue was standing next to Zhao Feng, and she was immediately stunned and overjoyed.
“Zhao Feng, we can talk about the repayment!” Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss had to lower his stance helplessly.
With a thought, Zhao Feng retracted his power. Just now, his power focused mainly on the laws of Earth since it contained strong pressure. When used with the pressure of his Sacred Lightning Body, normal Sacred Lords wouldn’t be able to fight back against Zhao Feng.
Zhao Feng’s strength…!
Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss’ expression became dark. Only a month or so had passed, and Zhao Feng managed to completely familiarize himself with the power of the Mystic Light Realm. His strength exceeded what Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss expected.
The two sides then started to negotiate. Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss gave some of his wealth while the other two Sacred Lords had to give up almost all their wealth as well.
Finally, Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss led the members of Nine Darkness Palace and left the Hall of Gods with anger.
“Bi Qingyue, use these resources wisely. Also, give three Purifying Blood Sacred Spirit Pills to the Grand Elder of Black Screen Corner,” Zhao Feng ordered before leaving.
He received a large amount of wealth from Nine Darkness Palace. It was comparable to the wealth of a three-star power that had existed for a million years. If used well, the Hall of Gods would be able to expand even faster.
At the same time, Zhao Feng understood that he needed to become stronger as well. The strength of a force was determined by two points: the first was wealth while the second was the experts.
Zhao Feng glanced at Nan Gongsheng after returning to the hall in the forbidden grounds. A wicked and terrifying force covered the hall that Nan Gongsheng was in, which made others scared of it. That place wasn’t actually forbidden, but everyone acted like it was; no one dared to approach it.
Maybe it was because Zhao Feng had broken through to the Mystic Light Realm and displayed strong battle-power, but Nan Gongsheng was working hard. After recovering from his injuries, Nan Gongsheng immediately started to absorb the power of the Evil God.
According to what Zhao Feng knew, Xie Yang was an “Ancient God,” a peak existence amongst those at the Heavenly Divine Realm. As long as nothing happened to Nan Gongsheng and he was able to inherit and control this power, he would be able to break through to the Heavenly Divine Realm easily, and he might be able to go even higher.
“Heavenly Divine Realm!”
Zhao Feng looked forward to it as well, but at the moment, he was extremely far away from the Heavenly Divine Realm.
Zhao Feng started to cultivate once more after going back to the forbidden grounds of the Hall of Gods.
After breaking through to the Mystic Light Realm, his physical strength had increased dramatically, but the power of his soul hadn’t increased by much. Zhao Feng still relied on the God’s Spiritual Eye the most, so he placed greater importance on the soul. The main reason he cultivated his body was so he could deal with the God Lightning Tribulation in the future.
Furthermore, the new duplication ability of his left eye used up a lot of Eye Intent. Without powerful Eye Intent or a strong soul body, Zhao Feng wouldn’t be able to use this ability very well.
Zhao Feng circulated the Ten Thousand Divine Thoughts Technique and started to multitask.
Zhao Feng first drank some of the pond water. The pond water wasn’t every effective toward Zhao Feng’s body now, so most of its power would be transferred to the soul. Zhao Feng also focused on some of the skills and secret techniques contained in the Earth of Wind Lightning.
The last part of his focus stayed in the dimension of his God Eye. Now that Zhao Feng had two Demigod heads, he had twice as much of the remaining God Tribulation Lightning. Although it was still very little, it was better than nothing. After all, it was extremely rare to obtain God Tribulation Lightning.
However, Zhao Feng didn’t absorb the power of God Tribulation Lightning in a rush. Instead, he tried to use the mysterious golden ball to duplicate it.
Zhao Feng first duplicated some of the resources he needed, then slowly duplicated items of higher grade. He wanted to know the limit of this duplication ability.
Zhao Feng entered a long period of seclusion to increase his strength in every respect. At the same time, he would communicate with Bi Qingyue with the Dark Heart Seal to understand what was happening in the outside world.
During this period of time, an elder of the Earth Demon Cult also came and gave a large amount of resources as repayment.
The battle between the Hall of Gods and Nine Darkness Palace increased the former’s fame. Now that they had also obtained a large amount of resources, the Hall of Gods was rapidly expanding into the inner continent.
The assassination missions aimed at the middle-upper echelon of Nine Darkness Palace continued. After all, Nine Darkness Palace had no evidence that the Hall of Gods was behind it.
Nine Darkness Palace could only protect themselves and try to frighten the assassins off. The assassin ranked 19th in the Silence Assassination Division was caught by Nine Darkness Palace not long ago and immediately killed.
As for Black Screen Corner, they were silent toward the Silence Assassination Division’s expansion.
In the blink of an eye, half a year passed.
Zhao Feng had consolidated his Five Elemental Wind Lightning Technique at the initial stages of the 9th level and consolidated his Sacred Lightning Body at the initial stages of the 6th level as well. His Soul Intent had become stronger, and so had his overall strength.
“Master, Demigod Kun Yun didn’t leave after arriving at the battlefield!”
One day, Bi Qingyue sent news to Zhao Feng.
The war was progressing rapidly. After Kun Yun arrived at the battlefield and realized that he had been tricked, he didn’t immediately rush back and instead chose to stay.
Zhao Feng could imagine that Kun Yun wanted to gather war points and buy resources to increase his strength. No late-stage Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lord had appeared on the battlefield yet, but with Kun Yun’s appearance, the rate of the war sped up, and the scale of the war increased once more.
“No… I need to go to the battlefield!”
Zhao Feng’s eyes darkened. He attracted Kun Yun to the battlefield because he thought that the latter would rush back directly after realizing Zhao Feng wasn’t present. In that case, Kun Yun would waste a lot of time on travelling, and his strength would stagnate.
However, reality didn’t go to plan. Since that was the case, Zhao Feng needed to find Kun Yun before he became too strong and resolve the feud. After all, Zhao Feng’s strength was now consolidated as high as it could go in the short term, so he could negotiate with Kun Yun. Otherwise, it would be over for Zhao Feng once Kun Yun became a Demigod again.
“Nan Gongsheng, do you want to go to the battlefield?” Zhao Feng messaged Nan Gongsheng.
Over the last half a year, apart from absorbing the power of the Evil God, Nan Gongsheng would accept some assassination missions. Now, he had reached the early stages of the Mystic Light Realm and was ranked first amongst the assassins of the Silence Assassination Division.
