Chapter 704 - The Period of Three Months
"You little asshole, we must make him give us more rare artifacts to compensate for the loss…"
The Martial Progenitors said with painful looks.
They discovered that the rate Qin Nan was absorbing the Qi after reaching the Law-Defying Martial Highness Realm was ten times faster than before. The difference between the Law-Defying Martial Highness Realm and the Undefeatable Martial Highness Realm was remarkable.
For example, previously, a thousand streams of Qi could be transformed into a stream of the force of the Martial Highness Realm.
Currently, it would take at least a few tens of thousands of streams of Qi to produce a single stream of the force of the Martial Highness Realm.
Once the number of streams of the force of the Martial Highness Realm exceeded a thousand, his cultivation had begun to experience a tremendous change.
As Qin Nan cultivated, the force of the Martial Highness Realm in his body continued to grow.
One thousand one hundred streams.
One thousand two hundred streams.
One thousand three hundred streams...
It felt like he had turned into a statue, with no sense of loneliness or boredom as he kept on repeating the same procedures. This was the path of cultivation in a whole, just like rowing a raft against the current—the raft would flow backward when the rower stopped rowing.
...Meanwhile, in the Eastern Continent...
The second-ranked forbidden area—the Million Devils Garden—became accessible. Countless geniuses and rogue cultivators headed there instantly, resulting in an intense competition. Most importantly, at the Million Devils Garden, Longhu completely displayed the outstanding power of his bloodline, and together with Sima Kong's capabilities as the successor of the Emperor of Thieves, they ended up as the biggest winners.
Apart from the Million Devils Garden, various places filled with fortunate encounters were discovered too.
The geniuses worked diligently to improve their cultivations.
When you were improving, everyone else was improving too.
It had been two months since Qin Nan had gone into seclusion.
"Force of the Martial Highness Realm, three thousand streams!"
A magnificent aura was unleashed as the force of the Martial Highness Realm in Qin Nan's body rose to three thousand streams following a roar like that of an ocean.
If the Law-Defying Martial Highness Realm was classified into three layers, Qin Nan had currently achieved the first-layer.
"Only a month left, even though the force of the Martial Highness Realm inside my body has reached three thousand streams, it's still a long distance away from reaching the peak Law-Defying Martial Highness Realm, which requires nine thousand nine hundred and ninety-nine streams."
Qin Nan began to feel a sense of urgency.
The pressure itself caused the passion in his heart to burn vigorously.
Fight! Fight! Fight!
Even if it meant placing his life at stake, he must continue to increase the force of the Martial Highness Realm!
Qin Nan yelled with rolling waves of battle intent.
The Divine Battle Spirit growled and increased the rate of absorbing the Qi, causing the faces of the Martial Progenitors to sink further.
...Meanwhile, in the Eastern Continent...
There was still a month left until the opening of the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault, but some rogue cultivators had already settled down at places around the Dao-Seeking Mountain.
Unlike the Eastern Continent's Auction held by the Trading Alliance or the Predestined Fate Vessel of the Wanxiang Pavilion, anyone who held a Dao-Seeking Badge would have access to the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault.
The Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault was different.
It did not put one's cultivation or talent into consideration. The destined ones would have the chance to acquire powerful rare artifacts, which would completely change one's life. In the history of the Eastern Continent, some rogue cultivators had managed to emerge strongly with the help of the rare artifacts, and had earned their reputations.
As such, the opening of the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault would always attract countless rogue cultivators and geniuses.
As the rogue cultivators were preparing themselves, the geniuses of the Four Great Factions were organizing themselves too.
In the past two months, the Trading Alliance had collected six half-Monarch Weapons and a great number of Sacred Weapons, allowing the Leader of the Trading Alliance to recover from his previous depression. It also gave Zhu Hang sufficient resources for his cultivation.
Besides that, the Leader of the Trading Alliance ordered Zhu Hang to slay any genius from the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom in the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault.
As Zhu Hang had failed twice in a row, he was experiencing enormous pressure, thus he immediately made use of the remaining time to improve his strength.
Half a month was gone in the blink of an eye.
Only half a month remained until the opening of the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault.
More rogue cultivators began to settle down around the Dao-Seeking Mountain, causing the previously lonely snowy mountains to become lively.
...Meanwhile, at the Demonic Eyes Forest, the Sacred Emperor Chamber...
Qin Nan's aura was as deep as an ocean. Even when absorbing the Qi at a terrifying pace, his aura remained extremely calm.
The force of the Martial Highness Realm in his body had now reached six thousand streams.
Six thousand streams of the force of the Martial Highness Realm was a terrifying number.
"This isn't looking good. It would be extremely difficult to increase the force of the Martial Highness Realm to nine thousand nine hundred and ninety-nine streams within half a month…"
Qin Nan's expression sunk instead of becoming joyful.
As his cultivation progressed, the difficulty of producing a stream of the force of the Martial Highness Realm significantly increased too.
"Kid, I knew you would have trouble, here's a gift for you!"
The two Martial Progenitors shouted.
They both performed hand seals rapidly as if they had transformed into the Sacred Emperor. Each of their moves would cause the chamber to shake vigorously.
"Accumulation of the Sacred Emperor, Qi into fruits!"
As the two Martial Progenitors completed their actions, mystical glows were fired from their palms, which covered the entire Sacred Emperor Chamber. Following this, the Qi in the chamber began to boil like water and merged together into fruits.
Qin Nan was startled.
He could sense that each Sacred Emperor Fruit was equivalent to a hundred streams of Qi.
"Seniors, you have my thanks. I'll surely get you the rare artifacts when the time comes!"
Qin Nan wore a grin and expressed his gratitude, before fully absorbing the Sacred Emperor Fruits with his Divine Battle Spirit. The pace of absorption was still the same, but with the Qi condensed into fruits, the efficiency was multiplied by a hundred.
"Humph, I knew it…"
The Disordered Ocean Progenitor twisted his lips.
If he didn't offer the Sacred Emperor Fruits, this Duan Qing would not have agreed to give them the rare artifacts.
The force of the Martial Highness Realm in Qin Nan's body rose rapidly.
As the deadline approached, many cultivators began to make their way to the Dao-Seeking Mountain.
A storm was approaching.
...Fourteen days later, the day before the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault was opened...
...Eastern Continent, the Sacred Emperor Chamber...
A shocking explosion took place.
The cultivators who were training themselves in the Demonic Eyes Forest raised their heads as they were aware of the impact. Their faces were filled with astonishment as they saw the clouds in the sky turning pitch-black as the force of the Heavens and Earth was swiftly gathered.
Qin Nan let out a deep breath.
Currently, the force of the Martial Highness Realm inside his body had increased to nine thousand nine hundred and ninety-nine streams, indicating that he had reached the peak Law-Defying Martial Highness Realm. Furthermore, the Martial Highness Crystal inside his body vibrated vigorously as if it could not wait to fly out from his body and trigger the Tribulation.
"Wait for a while."
Qin Nan withheld the urge of the Martial Highness Crystal with his thoughts.
"Seniors, thanks a lot for your help. You can open the chamber now."
Qin Nan said to the Martial Progenitors.
"This asshole is finally leaving…" The voice of the Disordered Ocean Progenitor was filled with joy. Within three months, Qin Nan had managed to absorb a fifth of the Qi accumulated inside the chamber.
Within this period, his heart had continued to bleed every day as he prayed for the day that Qin Nan would leave the chamber to come earlier!
The two Martial Progenitors let out roars, causing the mouth of the statue to open once again.
"Dao-Seeking Mountain, here I come!"
With a kick, Qin Nan changed his appearance into Duan Qing's and turned into a beam of saber glow that penetrated the sky.
This time, he would be the rainbow that astonished the entire world!
