Chapter 225 Pantheon Monument Observation (Part IV)
Amidst everyone’s astonished gazes, two strips of light sprouted out from Fang Xingjian’s spine, entangling together endlessly and eventually becoming a fourth circle of light.
He broke through to the fifth level of the mysteries!
The Astral Powers had gone through four levels of evolution, and on the Stats Window, the words had now become ‘Prodigious Astral Divine Powers’.
However, it was still incomplete. Fang Xingjian could sense that the information was still gushing into his brain. Various pieces of knowledge, including those on stellar magnetism forces, strong destructive forces of astral bodies, as well as gravitational forces, exploded in his brain one after another.
It was like a waterfall of information appearing on a computer screen. Fang Xingjian’s brain continued to circulate endlessly, as though it was a sponge absorbing all these pieces of information.
His topmost talent in swords art also gave him astonishing perseverance, courage, comprehension ability, and logic. This allowed him to absorb at a speed that made one’s hair stand on ends.
When he broke through and reached the fifth level, the old man’s eyes were already staring like they were a pair of gleaming light bulbs.
Hoult felt as if his whole world was going to collapse. ‘How could this happen? The right explication to this Ancient Star Chart should be the one I’m using now. This is definitely a star chart, but how could he explicate it faster than me? And he’s able to reach a higher phase?!’
Anderson, Wei Leng, Manny, Rota and the other examinees all looked dazedly at the circles of light behind Fang Xingjian. Their minds were blank, and they were all speechless.
What Fang Xingjian had done was truly too astonishing and too eye-popping! Who had heard of anyone comprehending five levels at one go?
However, under such a scenario, another circle of light was forming at the back of Fang Xingjian’s waist. He had broken through to the sixth level!
“Six levels? Are there really six levels? The Pantheon Monument really has six levels?” The old man who guarded the monument trembled suddenly.To be able to see the mysteries of the Pantheon Monument solved in his lifetime… He could truly die without any regrets.
‘What could it be? A martial art that can hold six levels of mysteries… The Melancholic Monarch’s core legacy… What sort of heaven shaking and earth shattering martial art could it be?’
Everyone was looking at Fang Xingjian, and their gazes filled were with anticipation. There were no longer any emotions of envy… Right now, what they were most curious about was what skill had Fang Xingjian acquired?
Just as they were astonished to the point that they had almost turned numb and thought that everything was finally over, Fang Xingjian clenched down on his teeth and let out a huge bellow, “There’s more!”
In that instant, even the empty space trembled by a violent burst of energy. The entire Pantheon Monument started to shake, shooting out stream after stream of dazzling white light.
“What has happened?”
Amidst everyone’s gazes being astonished to the point of going numb, a sixth circle of light appeared on Fang Xingjian’s back. He had reached the seventh level.
Right then, in his Stats Window, the new skill’s name had become Prodigious Astral Divine Powers Waves.
Then, amidst everyone’s complicated gazes of surprise and horror, a golden figure emerged slowly from the Pantheon Monument.
The old man, who guarded the monument, suddenly had his mouth agape, saying, “Lord Monarch?” The elder had seen the portrait of the Great Western Region Regional Academy’s founder, the Melancholic Monarch, before. The golden figure that had came out from the Pantheon Monument looked exactly the same as the Melancholic Monarch! How could he not be astonished?
Hearing what the old man said, everyone present also looked at the golden figure in shock. If this person who had suddenly appeared was truly the Melancholic Monarch, then would this Divine level expert not have lived for over two hundred years?
A hair standing feeling arose within everyone, but that golden figure did not appear to mind that. He merely looked at Fang Xingjian, who had been surrounded by six circles of light, and then smiled and nodded, satisfaction written all over his face.
He then looked at the other examinees, who were comprehending the Pantheon Monument, and broke into a smile.
His mouth moved very slightly, but no voice came out. It was as though he wanted to say something but could not do so.
In the next moment, the entire golden figure burst out and became rays of light, shooting out toward the people present.
Everyone wanted to dodge, but how could they be faster than light? The light beams shot into their bodies.
However, this was not an attack but a gift.
Hoult, Anderson, Manny and Rota were pierced by the light beams, and the moment they were hit, various images started to appear in their consciousness. Their talents, which were outstanding to begin with, were all unleashed completely.
This light beam seemed to have the ability to unleash the potential hidden deep in the human body. In that instant, a hint of inspiration appeared in their brains. It was an inspiration to attain Heaven’s Perception.
Rota clenched her fists in disbelief. Her brain was circulating, and she could feel that there seemed to be voices in the surroundings, trying to speak to her.
“This is… the inspiration for attaining Heaven’s Perception? I feel like I’m only a step away from attaining Heaven’s Perception.”
The same feeling rose from within Hoult, Anderson and Manny.
The old man, who guarded the monument, sighed, “Seems like this is the last message the Melancholic Monarch left behind in the Pantheon Monument. When someone uncovers all the mysteries behind the Pantheon Monument, this message will appear and help the few people among those present who have the greatest potential to attain Heaven’s Perception.”
He swept a glance at the remaining examinees, but the meaning behind his words was very clear.
It was obvious that other than Hoult, Anderson, Manny and Rota, as well as Wei Leng who had attained Heaven’s Perception, the other examinee’s potential were not regarded by the Melancholic Monarch. They could not even attain Heaven’s Perception.
Hearing these words, David was overcome by anger.
“Why?! Why did the Melancholic Monarch not choose me?! Putting aside Anderson and Hoult, since one of them is the Shadow Death God while the other is the grand disciple of the Astral Ancestor… What is the deal with the other two? How are they in the position to compete with me?!”
However, at the next moment, as he looked at Fang Xingjian who was surrounded by six circles of light, David felt as though someone had poured a bucket of cold water over his head, causing him to feel ice-cold all the way to his heart.
To think that Fang Xingjian had comprehended seven levels of mysteries hidden behind the Pantheon Monument and had completely resolved it… This made him feel a great sense of loss and despair.
The old man walked up to Fang Xingjian and saw that he was landing slowly from mid-air. All six of the circles of light behind him shattered.
The old man looked at Fang Xingjian earnestly and asked, “What did you comprehend? What kind of skill is it? Is it the Melancholic Monarch’s legacy?”
Everyone else turned over to look at Fang Xingjian too. They were clearly extremely curious to find out what Fang Xingjian had comprehended. The all-powerful Melancholic Monarch from two hundred years back, who had founded the Empire with seven other Divine level experts and had also founded the Regional Academy, and then created the Pantheon Monument… What kind of legacy had he left behind in the Pantheon Monument?
Who would not be curious? Who would not be agitated?
However, meeting their curious gazes, Fang Xingjian cast a glance at his Stats Window and asked, “Must I say it?”
