AST 1681 - Strength Improved, Entering the North Ocean Domain
Qing Shui was surprised by the upgrade of the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal this time. The only thing he felt was the sudden collision between Yiye Jiange’s consciousness and his own. Subsequently, he felt the transformations of the Realm of Violet Jade Immortal.
Qing Shui read through the introduction of the Ninth Layer of the Realm of Violet Jade Immortal. Ten-fold increase in its surface area, ten-fold increase in the spiritual sense of the Realm of Violet Jade Immortal. Time in the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal doubled from the previous layer.
Seeing that, the Qing Shui was overjoyed. Though the time only doubled, the actual overall effect was much stronger, due to the ten-fold increase in spiritual sense.
Qing Shui continued reading. The reward was a Nine Yin Tree which took a thousand years for it to bloom, fruit, and ripen. It was a top-rated alchemic ingredient.
This name led Qing Shui to relate it with the Nine Revolution Spirit Resurgence Pellet. This had always been the magical medicine for revival in the legends, but Qing Shui figured there was a three day limit for revival even with the magical medicine. Once this time passed, all efforts would be in vain, regardless of taking immortal pellets or magical medicine.
Besides, it was vital to have at least the intact head and heart in order to apply this life-resuscitating medicine. Any other way would be pointless.
According to the statement, it’s a top-rated ingredient for medicine distillation. It could probably be used to refine the Nine Revolution Spirit Resurgence Pellet. Nevertheless, it had been ages since the Ancient Alchemy Technique had last refined an all-new medicine. It would be challenging to add a prescription relying on the Realm of Violet Jade Immortal. At that instant, Qing Shui remembered Yuan Su. Perhaps she could be helpful later. Otherwise, it would be all up to destiny whether he could get the prescription.
Reward: Ten golden fish, edible and able to be incorporated into medicine, effective in strengthening bones and muscles…
Reward: Thousand Years Incense, Soul-capturing Incense, and other Incense trees, one each.
Reward: 5,000 years of therapeutic duration for all medicinal herbs in the Realm of Violet Jade Immortal.
Reward: 30% increase in strength and life for all demonic beasts in the Realm of Violet Jade Immortal.
Qing Shui was elated reading this. Though he was rather unprepared for the upgrade of the realm, he had been looking forward to it. It was absolutely great.
This breakthrough which benefited him the most was the increase in spiritual energy, which brought a huge transformation in Qing Shui’s strength. Both the Five Elements Divine Refining Technique and the Primordial Flame Dragon Whip were dependent on spiritual energy.
It was a direct and straightforward increase. After testing it out, the spiritual energy had doubled, so the current output was three times higher. It was an enormous breakthrough.
Qing Shui’s biggest pride formerly came from his strongest defense and formidable strength. The recent boost in spiritual energy also improved his defense. However, the Paragon Golden armor and the blind devotion of the Hell Nightmare Beast pushed his resistance and attack to outrageous levels.
Qing Shui only realized his intimidating and frightening abilities at that instant. The attacking force of the Primordial Flame Dragon Whip and the Five Elements Divine Refining Technique were dreadfully increased, up to almost half the damage of the Paragon Strike now. That was relatively petrifying.
Qing Shui could distinctly sense the changes in his body. The vibe of absolute confidence and the roaring ocean of consciousness was seemingly comprised of endless energy.
He felt more certain and assured about heading to the Northern Ocean, to move the Sunset Sea King Palace there. It was rational to have greater courage when one had incomparably stronger skills.
In the morning, Qing Shui and the three Mistresses took their breakfast together. The Sunset Palace Mistress and Muyun Qingge stared at Qing Shui at times. The breakthrough in spiritual energy brought minor changes in him. The saying of someone being “sharp” was actually based on that person having higher spiritual energy.
The Sunset Palace Mistress and Muyun Qingge stared at Yiye Jiange, who was beside Qing Shui, as well. They noticed the glowing changes in Yiye Jiange. While Qing Shui was brazen and insensitive, Yiye Jiange felt guilty reminiscing about the romantic night she just had.
Though they were inexperienced themselves, knowing that the two were a married couple and seeing Yiye Jiange’s current expression, both Mistresses understood everything at once. The Sunset Palace Mistress smiled, “Both of you look exceptionally sharp today.”
“Is it? I feel sharp all the time,” Qing Shui smirked.
“Alright, let’s have our meals and discuss how to move to the Northern Ocean,” Yiye Jiange replied hastily. She was not literally shy, now that they were like sisters, but she was a little embarrassed from being teased.
“I will go and have a look with Jiange beforehand, and then you’ll organize the move. How’s that?” Qing Shui proposed after finishing his meal.
“Fine. We’re already done organizing. In fact, we can move anytime. Things are simple and easy.” Sunset Palace Mistress sounded very assured.
Muyun Qingge nodded as well.
Qing Shui departed to the North Ocean Domain with Yiye Jiange. It was his first time entering the Northern Ocean. He bumped into the Ancient Golden Shrimp General who guarded an entrance to the Northern Ocean before. However, he’d yet to find out the force behind the general.
There were tens of thousands of forces in the North Ocean Domain. To be able to guard one of the Northern Ocean entrances, the force behind the general must be quite strong. It could be about the same level as the North Sea Dragon Palace and perhaps one of the peak forces in the North Ocean Domain.
It was possible to enter the North Ocean Domain from the Ice Ocean Domain. The world of ocean domains did not differ much from the main continents. Furthermore, Qing Shui now had the Paragon Water Flight skill, let alone Yiye Jiange, who was the heir of the strong Drakainas. She was as proficient as Qing Shui in the water.
The Sunset Sea King Palace was located at the intersection of the Ice Ocean Domain and the Northern Ocean. It was almost by one of the entrances so it was very feasible to move it to the Northern Sea.
The North Sea Dragon King Palace was located near the Ice Ocean Domain. It was the most powerful force around the Ice Ocean Domain, before it was unfortunately demolished by the Sunset Sea King Palace. With that, there would be no obstacles at all for the Sunset Sea King Palace to enter the North Ocean Domain.
The landscape of the North Sea Dragon King Palace was well-preserved. It was very spacious, with the water boundaries undamaged, but was completely deserted after the men left.
Qing Shui and Yiye Jiange arrived within half a day. With the aid of the old turtle, it was considered a very long distance for a half-day journey.
“The location is great and so is its Feng Shui,” Qing Shui told Yiye Jiange as he observed, smiling. Although he wasn’t an expert, Qing Shui had somewhat studied Feng Shui. The theories of the nature-related landscape, the spiritual influence within the caves, the excessiveness of Yin Qi in certain locations might sound superstitious. Nevertheless, scientifically speaking, it was the effect of the planet’s magnetic field and gravitation. It existed in his past life and also his present life. Moreover, the ample spiritual influence would deeply impact the warriors. Sometimes, formations could be related to Feng Shui too.
“Let’s move here as soon as possible then. We have to move anyway,” Yiye Jiange continued.
“Tell me, do you have other ambitions that caused you to urgently want to move to this chaotic zone?” Qing Shui asked curiously.
