After the spirit force that came from the ball of spirit qi was drawn towards the spirit force whirlpool, it caused the speed of the spirit force whirlpool to suddenly increase by several folds.
This was still under the situation where he hadn't used spirit stones to cultivate!
All of the spirit force within the ball of spirit qi merged with his spirit sea. After a round of refining, Nie Tian used his mental consciousness to examine it, and immediately noticed that the outermost layer of his spirit sea had become purer and thicker.
This round of cultivation was equivalent to several days and night of bitter cultivation using spirit stones.
If he could keep staying in this mysterious land and continue to gather the Heaven and Earth spirit qi into balls and refine it into his spirit sea, he believed that the speed of his breakthroughs in the Houtian Realm would be raised seven or eight folds!
However, this was also limited to this place only.
Once he left and returned to the Lingyun Sect, he might not have such great increases in his cultivation using the Heaven and Earth spirit qi over there to cultivate.
Because the spirit qi of this place was simply too dense and strong.
"Could it be that...this is a type of method that can only be cultivated in this area? Is it not as strong a skill as the Angry Fist?" Nie Tian slowly realised something and secretly pondered over it.
During the following period of time, he borrowed the power of the recondensed balls of spirit qi to continuously refine his spirit sea.
Via this kind of method, his spirit sea was tempered with an astonishing speed.
With his perception, he knew that roughly three to five days had passed. And his spirit sea...had completed the first refining.
The white and foggy spirit sea that originally had a thin and dispersed spirit qi became dense after a round of refining.
However, at this moment, he didn't feel that it was hard to expand his spirit sea after he had reached the critical point of the early Houtian Realm, as compared to that time when he was at the peak of the ninth Lianqi layer. He had to urgently increase his cultivation realm to continue transforming his strong experiences.
Thus, he realised that he might have to continue repeating the refining of his spirit sea.
Perhaps, he might have to experience another one or two refinings of his spirit sesa before being able to reach the bottleneck of his breakthrough. After that, he could borrow his realisations and new understandings towards spirit force to breakthrough into the middle stages of the Houtian Realm in one go.
After realising this, he temporarily stopped the refining of his spirit sea, and stopped comprehending the secrets to condensing the ball of spirit qi.
Because he felt that he had already grasped this unusual skill after this period of time where he continuously condensed the balls of spirit qi.
After that, he looked towards the third and the fourth enormous arms that pointed towards the sky.
Those two arms which were as huge as mountains could have come from the same Djinn that was buried under the ground. The palms of those two hands were opposite each each other, and its five fingers were bent, as if it were making a mysterious seal.
The magnetic field in the middle of those two enormous arms were chaotic, as if it had twisted the natural flow of the Heaven and Earth spirit qi to form a kind of hand seal.
After observing it for a moment, he slowly tried it out. He also extended his hands out, and placed his palms opposite each other. His five fingers were also bent in the same way as he made the hand seal.
When he adopted the correct posture, he concentrated his mind and stared fixedly at those two arms.
A kind of forbidden/sealing understanding suddenly entered his mind, and he carefully comprehended it.
In the next moment, his spirit sea, the power of his fleshy body, and the power of his consciousness all suddenly surged. The power of three different auras seemed to converge in his two hands in an instant.
A twisting magnetic field slowly formed in the middle of his two hands.
He clearly felt that the draining of his mental power was much more than the loss of his spirit force and the power of his fleshy body!
Strands of mental power permeated into the twisting magnetic field in the middle of his two hands via his fingers.
In that instant, he suddenly felt that the surrounding magnetic field around him instantly turned distorted and chaotic!
All of the Heaven and Earth spirit qi that existed around him irregularly surged, and even space...seemed to have produced an abnormal sinking fluctuation.
As the person who used the technique, the irregular and chaotic magnetic field ignored him. However, he faintly felt that any living creatures besides him that entered the area would immediately be affected by the strange twisting magnetic field.
Because there was no one there, he was unclear how much pressure could be generated by the magnetic field.
However, he knew that the formation of the magnetic field was currently expending a lot of his mental power, as well as a portion of his spirit force and the power of his fleshy body.
He felt that, following the permeation and the draining of his mental power, the magnetic field that was formed around him slowly spread outwards.
"Three meters, four meters, five meters…"
He carefully comprehended, and discovered the magnetic field that was spreading outwards would immediately stop once he stopped the convergence of his mental power.
However, as long as he continued increasing his mental power, that twisting magnetic field would continue expanding.
When the magnetic field around him had extended up to ten meters, he felt a kind of dizzy feeling, which immediately made him understand that his mental power was about to be used up.
He decisively stopped.
After he stopped adding mental power, that chaotic twisting magnetic field that had expanded to ten meters also stopped.
At this moment, the spirit force and fleshy body power that came from his body was still slowly draining, as if it was continuing to control that chaotic magnetic field.
Looking at the nearby Heaven and Earth spirit qi frantically surge in an irregular manner, as well as the fact that even space seemed to be compressing, which formed a caving magnetic field, he was secretly surprised.
"This kind of technique also requires time to activate it. Also, the drain on my mental power is extremely high. However, once it forms, it seems like it only needs a portion of my spirit force and my fleshy body power to continue maintaining it."
"Only, because no one can come in, added on to the fact that I am not completely affected by it, I don't know how strong its true power is."
"It seems like I'll have to practice it in the outside in the future. However, before I leave, I must properly comprehend the subtleties of this technique, so that I can confirm that I can still use it in the outside."
After thinking for a while, he, who was somewhat exhausted, simply stopped the forming of those hand seals.
Following the abandoning of his hand seals, the spirit force and fleshy power that had been continuously pouring out also stopped flowing outwards.
However, that mysterious twisting magnetic field didn't disappear, and still existed.
Only, because there wasn't any more energy supplied to it, the strange magnetic field surrounding him slowly shrunk, and it looked like it would gradually disappear following the passing of time.
He silently counted in his mind, and noticed that the twisted magnetic field thoroughly dissipated after roughly three minutes.
After the magnetic field disappeared, everything returned to normal. However, his drained mental power, spirit force, as well as fleshy power, didn't return.
The enormous drain on his mental power made Nie Tian lie on the ground with slightly listless eyes.
He looked at the dusky sky and suddenly felt an incomparable exhaustion, causing him to want to sleep.
The drain on his spirit force could be recovered via spirit stones and cultivation. The dense Heaven and Earth spirit qi in this area was even better at replenishing his drained spirit force.
The loss of his fleshy power could be recovered via the eating of spirit beast's meat, which would rapidly recover it.
Only the drain on his mental power seemed to not have any methods of recovering within a short time.
Until now, his mental power seemed to only be able to slowly recover via sleeping.
He who was originally feeling a heavy sleepy feeling didn't have any better methods and could only sleep.
After he slept for an unknown period of time, when he opened his eyes again, sure enough, he was full of energy and was in great spirits.
After that, he stayed in this mysterious land to keep attempting to comprehend the mysterious hand signs made by the two enormous hands. He combined the mental power in his body, the spirit force, and his fleshy power to create that strange chaotic twisting magnetic field, attempting to thoroughly grasp its intricacies before leaving.
Heaven Leaving Domain.
Nie Tian had already left for an entire half month. During this half month, the fights between the seven great sects had already calmed down.
The Earth Flame Beast that had broken free from the Scarlet Flame Mountain Range caused havoc in the Ling Bao Court. Under the interception of the Blood Sect and the Ghost Sect's Mysterious Realm experts and Fang Hui, it forcefully charged into the heavens and disappeared.
Because of the wanton destruction of the Earth Flame Beast as well as the magma spewed out of the earth's core, the Blood Sect, the Ghost Sect, and the Ling Bao Court, who were originally in a fierce fight, had no choice but to stop fighting.
After that, the flaming meteors descended from the sky, respectively landing in the entrances and surrounding of the seven great powers.
Those meteors that carried the key to the Heavenly Gate, as well as the restrictions that the Prison Department placed on the Blood Sect and the Ghost Sect made them give up on fighting with the Ling Bao Court to the death.
The bloody battle that erupted in the Scarlet Flame Mountain Range stopped shortly after. The Ghost Sect and the Blood Sect hurriedly rushed back to their sect areas to fight for those keys to the Heavenly Gate.
The Ling Bao Court suffered disastrous injuries, but it wasn't even close to reaching the point of sect extermination. When the Ling Bao Court was rebuilding the sect, they also started to collect the keys to the Heavenly Gate that were branded on those meteors.
The Grey Valley and the Black Mist Palace which had invaded the Prison Department were at first 讨到了便宜. However, after the return of Chang Sen's wife, Kong Yi, they were violently fixed up.
If not for Chang Sen's obstruction, over a half of the experts from the Black Mist Palace and the Grey Valley might have died while facing the experts from the Prison Department.
Not long after the Lianqi Warriors within the Black Mist Palace and the Grey Valley returned with dejected faces, the Prison Department spread the word to the various sects. The Heavenly Gate...would open seven days later.
No matter what way you got it from, no matter what sect you came from, as long as you obtained the key to the Heavenly Gate, you can step into it.
The people from the seven great sects that obtained the key to the Heavenly Gate were all boiling with happiness, and they were grinding their fists as they prepared.
The experts within their sects were also helping them make their last preparations and helping them accumulate enough strength, in hopes that they could obtain some benefits within the Heavenly Gate.
At this moment, after Nie Tian disappeared, Wu Ji, who had disappeared for a long time returned to the mountain.
"There's still seven days left, why hasn't that youngster come out yet?"
After returning and noticing that Nie Tian still hadn't shown any traces of returning, Wu Ji secretly furrowed his brows.
