Chapter 1453: Class 8 Radiant Saint Master (One)
"What makes me most curious is just where did this force come from? And who left it here?"
The six of them discussed these two questions. The origins of the force had already become a mystery, one that affected all of them.
Just a sliver of the force had shocked them all. They could not imagine what terrifying realm of cultivation the owner of the force had reached. More importantly, just when did the owner leave behind the force? Was it recently, during the ancient times, or was it during the ancient era when history had been erased? Maybe they had even come from the Saints' World?
But obviously, even after they racked their brains, they were unable to reach a conclusion. The artifact spirit had failed to sense when the force had appeared, which made it even more impossible to determine when it first appeared.
"I never thought that there would actually be so much Radiant Saint Force origin energy sealed in here. Great-grandson, with so much origin energy, it'll just be a matter of time before you reach Class 8 as a Radiant Saint Master," Yang Lie said to Jian Chen.
"A Class 8 Radiant Saint Master has only ever appeared in the ancient times, and since then, none have ever appeared again. Jian Chen, looks like you'll become the second Class 8 Radiant Saint Master. There's always been a legend regarding Class 8 Radiant Saint Masters on the Tian Yuan Continent. It is said that they can revive people who have passed away from old age by using the Saint Weapons they have left behind. Even I don't know whether this is true or not because the Class 8 Radiant Saint Master in the ancient times never did anything like that." The sea goddess stared at Jian Chen. If Class 8 Radiant Saint Masters really did possess such heaven-defying abilities, Jian Chen would definitely be able to increase the overall strength of the world once he reached the 8th Class.
Whether it was an Emperor Armament, a King Armament, or a Ruler Armament, they were all extremely difficult to destroy. After so many years, the Tian Yuan Continent has given birth to many Saint Weapons, which have been left behind by Saint Rulers, Saint Kings, and Saint Emperors.
If all the owners of all these weapons were to be revived, it would be an extremely terrifying force.
Jian Chen's eyes became filled with eagerness when he thought about that. He could personally test whether or not Class 8 Radiant Saint Masters possessed such great abilities.
The force within the seal did not require protector Shui's assistance since it perfectly reached a resolution, which obviously relieved Jian Chen and the others. All of them soon bid farewell to Jian Chen, and Yang Lie, Guihai Yidao, and Feng Xiaotian returned to the Tian Yuan Continent.
In the blink of an eye, only Jian Chen was left in the cold sky above the sea. He put the saint artifact away and stared at the icy tundra in the distance for a while before leaving.
Jian Chen returned to the Tian Yuan Continent on his sword and found a desolate mountain. He then entered the artifact space and prepared to go into seclusion.
His Radiant Saint Force had once stopped at Class 6 and was unable to reach Class 7 because he lacked Radiant Saint Force origin energy. This was why he had visited the Radiant Saint Master Union in the City of God. Only there would he be able to an opportunity to become a Class 7 Radiant Saint Master. Now, his Radiant Saint Force remained at Class 7. The reason was similar to when he was a Class 6 Radiant Saint Master: he lacked the origin energy of Radiant Saint Force.
Not every Radiant Saint Master could reach Class 7 or 8 with Radiant Saint Force origin energy, but without it, it was impossible to reach the 7th Class no matter how talented the Radiant Saint Master was, let alone the 8th Class.
The artifact spirit had reinforced the hall where the seal had been located in the artifact space, completely sealing in all the Radiant Saint Force origin energy so that none of it could leak out.
White mist filled the vast hall. It was formed from the pure Radiant Saint Force origin energy, and it was so plentiful that it was immeasurable.
Jian Chen sat in the hall and began absorbing the origin energy.
The cultivation process for Radiant Saint Masters was vastly different when compared to fighters. Fighters absorbed the energy of the world and used it to condense their Radiant Saint Force in their dantian and used it to forge their bodies so that they could obtain strength. Radiant Saint Masters cultivated the soul. They absorbed Radiant Saint Force origin energy into their soul to evolve it, refining the origin energy and storing it in their soul.
Radiant Saint Masters possessed weak bodies, but they also possessed powerful attacks, Class 7 Radiant Saint Masters in particular. If they used origin energy to cast Radiant Artes, they would be able to deal attacks on the level of a Saint Ruler. Only Class 7 Radiant Saint Masters could use the forbidden arte, God's Descent, which was a powerful technique that could even fend off Saint Kings. It was countless times more powerful than Saint Tier Battle Skills, but the only drawback was that its price was just too heavy.
Jian Chen sat in the center of the hall, absorbing the Radiant Saint Force origin energy as quickly as he could. Strands of visible, white mist constantly flowed into his forehead, entering his soul before being surrounded by it. He quickly refined these strands.
Jian Chen's soul had already reached the peak of Saint Emperor now, so it could not be compared to when he had first reach the 7th Class. As a result, both his rate of absorption and refinement was extremely great. No other Class 7 Radiant Saint Master could match up to him.
His talent as a Radiant Saint Master was extremely impressive as well, so the origin energy was extremely compatible with his soul. As a result, he advanced at an extremely great pace toward the 8th Class.
If other Class 7 Radiant Saint Masters, while continuously refining origin energy, required a hundred years to reach the 8th Class, then Jian Chen only needed a few years or even less time than that.
As the of Radiant Saint Force origin energy merging with Jian Chen's soul rapidly increased, he could sense his soul morph bit by bit. Although it remained at the peak level of a Saint Emperor and showed no signs of increasing, it was undergoing a different growth, becoming even more powerful.
At the same time, both his rate of absorption and refinement gradually increased as his soul morphed. A small whirlpool, completely condensed from white mist, formed near his forehead, as if there was a suction force between his eyes endlessly pulling in origin energy.
