“It’s not enough, it’s far from enough. I can easily resist a heavenly tribulation with this degree of power!” Doudou said. “I want to condense a monster core with over eight dragon patterns. However, the power of this heavenly tribulation is too low. This won’t allow me to condense so many patterns. Shuhang, do you have any way to increase the power of the heavenly tribulation?”
Song Shuhang asked, “Who told you that the power of the tribulation is related to the number of core patterns you will have?”
When he had been ascending to the Fifth Stage, he had faced Senior Skylark’s Eighth Stage heavenly tribulation. In the end, wasn’t the number of core patterns that he condensed still pitifully low? He had to rely on Senior White Two’s help to add nine dragon patterns onto his golden core.
Moreover, don’t plant flags while transcending the tribulation—the last person who said that he wanted to condense an eight dragon pattern golden core is currently still out cold in the Inner World.
Fairy Dongfang Six said, “Normally speaking, the greater the power of the heavenly tribulation… the greater the chance of condensing more core patterns. In addition, the quality of one’s golden core tends to be higher. After all, there should naturally be a reward for taking on a higher difficulty.”
Song Shuhang asked, “Does artificially strengthening the heavenly tribulation have any effect?”
“If one feels that they can withstand a stronger tribulation, then after the tribulation is strengthened… there should indeed be a chance to improve the quality of one’s core.” Fairy Dongfang Six was similarly not too certain.
“Shuhang, hurry, hurry, hurry! The last few waves of the tribulation are coming. Help me strengthen the heavenly tribulation. Trust me, I can definitely do it!” Doudou shouted—his current state was so good that he had never been better. The current power of the heavenly tribulation could not satisfy him at all.
Moreover, Song Shuhang had condensed nine dragon patterns; he couldn’t let his junior surpass him by too much. Doudou still wanted to keep some face.
While he spoke, the volume of the tribulation clouds increased sharply, swelling up to double its previous size.
At this time, the old-fashioned heavenly tribulation artillery underwent a change, fully acquiring the nature of the technological era’s heavy artillery.
The power of Doudou’s heavenly tribulation had doubled out of nowhere.
“Hahaha, this is what I wanted, woof!” Doudou’s laughter reached the skies as his eyes exuded confidence.
Even if the power of the heavenly tribulation had doubled, he remained fearless, feeling that everything was under his control.
“Thank you, Shuhang. Don’t worry, I won’t let you guys down,” Doudou shouted. Afterward, his monster body swelled up again, and his fur turned golden before heading out to face the heavy artillery.
“???” Song Shuhang.
Why are you thanking me? I didn’t do anything.
The increase in the power of the heavenly tribulation has nothing to do with me…
I don’t want to take fault for this.
Fairy Dongfang Six softly said, “Sure enough, the power of Doudou’s heavenly tribulation has increased. However, he should be able to bear it.”
Song Shuhang looked at Fairy Dongfang Six suspiciously. “What’s the matter?”
Fairy Dongfang Six explained, “Doudou’s tribulation-transcending formation originally belonged to Demon Monarch Anzhi, and even though he modified it into one suitable for himself, its foundations were still arranged by Demon Monarch Anzhi.”
Song Shuhang was puzzled—he’d ascended to the Fifth Stage in a single breath, and although he’d often dealt with the heavenly tribulation in the past few months, he never got to use something like a tribulation-transcending formation.
Therefore, Song Shuhang didn’t know much about it.
Fairy Dongfang Six said, “Transcending a tribulation is a very personal matter. You should know that when a cultivator transcends their tribulation, they can only rely on themself, and no other cultivator can intervene to help them. If another cultivator intervenes, the power of the tribulation increases.”
Song Shuhang was taken aback. “Does that mean that since Demon Monarch Anzhi had been the one to arrange the tribulation-transcending formation, even after Doudou took it over, it’s still equivalent to Demon Monarch Anzhi helping Doudou transcend his tribulation?”
“Yes,” Fairy Dongfang Six said, nodding. This was the reason she and Dharma King Creation couldn’t rest easy when they heard about Doudou’s heavenly tribulation. This caused them to immediately rush.
“Although this formation has undergone some modifications, overall, it’s still equivalent to Demon Monarch Anzhi setting the tribulation-transcending formation up for Doudou. It is equivalent to indirectly interfering in Doudou’s tribulation. At this time, although the heavenly tribulation’s power has more than doubled, it should still be within an acceptable range, and Doudou should be able to handle it.” Fairy Dongfang Six silently let out a breath of relief.
Doudou’s foundation was very stable as he had been guided by Senior Yellow Mountain ever since his childhood, even though his ascension speed wasn’t too fast. Nevertheless, since all the cultivators that made contact with Senior Yellow Mountain were of a pretty good level, Doudou had an especially broad outlook on the world, far surpassing that of ordinary Fourth Stage monsters.
If it were a common Fourth Stage monster, the chance of it dying in that previous wave of the tribulation, which had doubled in power, would be well over 70%.
Yet, Doudou was still alive and kicking, using the power of the tribulation-transcending formation to resist the heavenly tribulation in a textbook manner.
“This is also the reason cultivators usually don’t rely on their seniors to arrange their formations,” Dharma King Creation said as he pinched his throat. “It looks like it wasn’t an inner demon, and it still isn’t my time to enter the stage.”
“…” Song Shuhang.
I sincerely hope that Senior Creation won’t have an opportunity to sing.
Doudou’s heavenly tribulation was still ongoing, and the virtuous lamia earnestly filmed the entire process.
Song Shuhang and Dharma King Creation were standing guard by the side of the formation.
Meanwhile, Fairy Dongfang Six continued to fiddle with Song Shuhang’s immortal boat.
“It’s done!” Fairy Dongfang Six clapped her hands gently, and pushed Song Shuhang’s mecha immortal boat back to his side. “As for the pet-shaped manifestation core, you can install it yourself.”
Fairy Dongfang Six only made some slight modifications to the energy refiner so that it could work together with the ‘core reactor’ and Song Shuhang’s immortal boat, acting as an energy channel.
In this way, the core reactor could be installed in the immortal boat like a ‘spirit stone’ to replenish the boat’s energy.
Song Shuhang asked, “What about the pet-shaped manifestation core?”
Fairy Dongfang Six replied, “That’s up to you. You can install it wherever you want. However, I remember that this thing is generally installed on gold, diamond, and stuff like that. No one has ever tried to install it on an immortal boat. It would be better for you to try it out on an ordinary car first.”
Song Shuhang immediately set his sights on Fairy Dongfang Six’s car.
“Don’t even think about it!” Fairy Dongfang Six hurriedly said. “If you dare to use it on my car, you’ll be run over tomorrow.”
Song Shuhang couldn’t help but shudder.
Beneath the heavenly tribulation.
Doudou’s body shook, and more than ten tufts of fur fell off his body. These tufts turned into small Doudous, and rose into the sky.
These clones did not have much strength, with some of them only being at the Third Stage, and the strongest being at the beginner level of the Fourth Stage.
After the tufts soared into the sky, they took the initiative to slam into the heavenly tribulation’s heavy artillery.
“Woof! Hahaha! That’s it? It’s not enough, it’s far from enough. I haven’t had fun yet.” Doudou stood up and used his paw to stroke the hair on top of his head.
Fairy Dongfang Six said, “Doudou is getting overconfident.”
Dharma King Creation added, “It might be an inner demon.”
Doudou loudly shouted, “Shuhang, increase the power of the heavenly tribulation!”
“…” Song Shuhang.
I don’t own the heavenly tribulation. I don’t have the ability to increase its power whenever I want.
Fairy Dongfang Six said, “Doudou, don’t make trouble. Just focus on transcending your tribulation. The power of this tribulation is already nearing your limit, and there is no need to increase its power.”
Doudou said, “But I feel like I can still handle much more!”
He was serious—he felt that there was still a huge potential in his body that had not been released!
Moreover, the ‘Blood God Crystal’ that was buried in the large formation had still not been activated. Once the power of the Blood God Crystal was released and merged with the tribulation-transcending formation, it would increase the quality of the monster core that Doudou condensed.
At this time, Fairy Dongfang Six’s phone rang.
She glanced at her phone, and saw that it was a call from Senior Yellow Mountain.
“Hello, Senior Yellow Mountain. Doudou’s tribulation hasn’t ended yet,” Fairy Dongfang Six said after answering the call.
Senior Yellow Mountain’s voice sounded from the phone. “Doudou’s heavenly tribulation should already be nearing its end, right? Is it going smoothly?”
Although there was a guarantee from the divination of Immortal Master Copper Trigram, Yellow Mountain still hoped to know the situation of Doudou’s tribulation firsthand—in fact, Yellow Mountain was flying to H City at the fastest speed he could go.
“Yes, it’s just the last few waves of the tribulation, and it’s going very smoothly,” Fairy Dongfang Six said.
Venerable Yellow Mountain asked, “Did the power of the heavenly tribulation increase?”
Fairy Dongfang Six replied, “Yes, it doubled. However, it isn’t a problem for Doudou.”
Venerable Yellow Mountain responded, “Thanks for your hard work. If Doudou faces any problems, please tell me immediately.”
“Stupid Yellow Mountain~ I have a big problem,” Doudou shouted at this moment.
Never underestimate a dog’s ears—even if he was in the middle of transcending his tribulation, he could still hear the phone call clearly.
“Stupid Yellow Mountain, I want to increase the power of my heavenly tribulation! Please allow me to do so!” Doudou’s monster energy skyrocketed, and the flaming wheels worked with the tribulation-transcending formation to sweep through the bombardment of the heavenly tribulation’s heavy artillery.
Venerable Yellow Mountain responded, “Don’t learn from Thrice Reckless, embrace stability.”
“I’ve got this under control. I don’t know why, but my state today feels perfect. It might be because of the enlightenment I received today, but my strength has improved tremendously. A lot of previously vague knowledge has become clear to me. I’m no longer the Doudou of yesterday. The me of today can easily beat ten of yesterday’s me,” Doudou cried.
Venerable Yellow Mountain asked, “Has my Doudou finally gone mad?”
“Stupid Yellow Mountain, trust me. I feel that this time I might condense an eight dragon pattern golden core!” Doudou said sincerely. “There is no room for regrets when it comes to the golden core. I don’t want to regret not having done my best. I’m transcending the tribulation right now, but I still have the energy to spare to talk to you. Isn’t that the greatest proof of my strength? I’m stronger than you think.”
Venerable Yellow Mountain asked, “Fairy Dongfang Six, what do you think?”
Fairy Dongfang Six said, “Doudou does indeed have more power in store, but I don’t recommend strengthening the tribulation.”
Venerable Yellow Mountain said, “I understand.”
Doudou quickly said, “Master Yellow Mountain, I can really do it.”
“You decide for yourself, Doudou,” Venerable Yellow Mountain suddenly said. “It’s true that there is no room for regrets when it comes to the golden core… Whatever your choice is, I won’t interfere. However, you should think about your choices very carefully as it is you who must bear the consequences should they come. If you die, don’t regret it.”
Venerable Yellow Mountain’s answer was beyond Fairy Dongfang Six’s expectations. Actually, it was beyond everyone’s expectations.
Doudou seriously said, “I know, I won’t regret it. Come on, Shuhang! Strengthen my tribulation!”
“…” Song Shuhang.
Seriously, it’s not like I can control the heavenly tribulation!
