Chapter 856 - Qin Nan's First-Layer Martial Progenitor Realm
"That's it, go and help senior construct the Cultivation Hall. After that's done, go ahead and choose the best cave to cultivate, and don't you dare be lazy!" Qin Nan calmed his thoughts and patted Xuan Yue's head, before arriving beside the Dao Origin Crystal with a flicker.
"Humph, what kind of an attitude was that. With the help of the Dao Origin Crystal, my cultivation rate will definitely outmatch yours…" Xuan Yue shook his head and switched his focus onto the Cultivation Hall.
He had been looking forward to cultivating with the Dao Origin Qi for a long time!
Qin Nan placed his hand onto the Dao Origin Crystal, which shuddered slightly as if it was aware of Qin Nan's presence. A gentle purple glow was emitted from it, which encapsulated Qin Nan's figure and brought him into its center.
"Great, no one can peek at me while I'm cultivating now!"
Qin Nan's eyes flickered with excitement.
The Dao Origin Crystal was a magical artifact. Even a Martial Monarch was unable to peek into it.
'Let's start cultivating!"
Qin Nan murmured. With a thought, the six Martial Seeds slowly floated out from his body. Five of them were unleashing powerful auras, while the other one was slightly weaker.
"I'll need to nurture the Martial Seeds into Martial Trees, which requires the energy from the Dao Origin Qi. Furthermore, I'll need to refine them with my will and the Monarch Arts…" Qin Nan gathered his thoughts while the Divine Battle Spirit slowly emerged behind him, absorbing the surrounding Dao Origin Qi into the Martial Seeds.
Six Martial Seeds began to vibrate, as if they were responding to Qin Nan.
"Luckily, I've learned over a hundred Monarch Arts. Otherwise, ordinary cultivators would need a long time to nurture six Martial Seeds!" Qin Nan's lips curled upward as he exhaled deeply, causing his aura to change tremendously.
One with the Mind, obsessed with Martial Arts!
The Monarch Arts arose within Qin Nan's mind and turned into six mystical glows that entered the six Martial Seeds under his control.
The Martial Seeds stiffened slightly, before uttering a series of buzzes as if they were roaring in excitement.
Time gradually passed and eight days were gone in the blink of an eye.
In the previous eight days, Qin Nan's Martial Seeds had experienced a tremendous change, causing a green sprout to surface from each seed and unleash a strong aura.
On a side note, the Martial Seed formed with sacred force grew faster than the Martial Seeds formed with the force of the Divine of God of Battle. The moment it sprouted, it had grown three inches tall.
"Mm? Normally, the Martial Seed formed with sacred force should be significantly weaker than the Martial Seeds formed with the force of the Divine God of Battle. It seems like I'll need to focus on the Martial Seed of the sacred force first!" Qin Nan immediately diverted the majority of the Dao Origin Qi to the specific Martial Seed.
BANG, BANG, BANG!
The cultivation process continued.
Another eight days were gone. As soon as the sun rose, Qin Nan's eyes emitted a flicker.
"What would be a better time than now?"
Following a huge roar, a large one-zhang tall tree emerged from the Martial Seed formed with sacred force together with several branches full of leaves.
The leaves on the branches emitted a strong Martial Intent. The branches were each engraved with different patterns, each representing a Monarch Art!
Qin Nan wore a joyful expression.
It went without saying that the rate of cultivation would drop dramatically as it progressed. Even with Qin Nan's second-grade Tian ranked Divine Battle Spirit, he still needed the support of the Dao Origin Qi and a significant amount of time for the Martial Seed to grow into a one-zhang tall Martial Tree.
However, the main reason was that Qin Nan had taken a completely different path of cultivation.
Normally, once the Martial Seed was formed, the Tribulation would be triggered to instantly refine the Martial Seed into a Martial Tree. However, judging from Qin Nan's situation, even when all the Martial Seeds had grown into one-zhang tall Martial Trees, it was impossible to tell if the Tribulation would be triggered.
"Let's take a look at the Human Peak."
Qin Nan collected his thoughts. His left eye emitted a sparkle as he glanced at the Human Peak.
Sixteen days had passed. The Six-Spirited Dragon Vein and Xuan Yue had finished constructing the Cultivation Hall, which looked like a huge dragon from afar. Qin Nan instantly saw the Cultivation Hall was split into three parts with formations connected to the Dao Origin Crystal, transmitting the Dao Origin Qi to the areas at different rates.
"Well done!" Qin Nan swiftly transmitted his voice to the Six-Spirited Dragon Vein, "Senior, you can now spread the news around the Dragon Emperor Clan. A top-tier spot will cost five hundred Monarch Crystals for a month. Three hundred Monarch Crystals for a middle-tier spot, while one hundred Monarch Crystals for a bottom-tier spot. Meanwhile, s middle-tier spot and bottom-tier spot would cost one hundred Monarch Crystals and fifty Monarch Crystals for half a month respectively."
Qin Nan had greatly considered before deciding the prices. He was aware that the Cultivation Hall was ideal for disciples below the fifth-layer Martial Progenitor Realm, thus he had taken their financial capabilities into account.
After all, as long as the Cultivation Hall was fully occupied, it could earn at least five thousand Monarch Crystals every month!
That was already very impressive.
"Sure, leave it to me."
The Six-Spirited Dragon Vein replied. Qin Nan withdrew his thoughts and immersed himself into the process of cultivation.
The powerful Dao Origin Qi surged toward Qin Nan, allowing the five Martial Seeds to grow flourishingly.
Time gradually passed….
While Qin Nan was cultivating in seclusion, the Cultivation Hall was opened to public, which instantly became the go-to place for the disciples. In just two days, the rooms were fully booked out for a month. Those who were late failed to find themselves a room.
As a result, many elders and disciples were envious.
It was obvious how much Qin Nan was earning every month, and it was completely free!
However, despite being envious, they were totally clueless as to what to do. Apart from the three great authorities, none of them were able to touch Qin Nan.
However, on this particular day...
The Dao Origin Crystal uttered a buzz as if it was aware of something. A stream of powerful Dao Origin Qi surged into Qin Nan's Martial Seeds.
Following this, Qin Nan's Martial Seeds were no longer the same. They all turned into one-zhang tall trees emitting a purple glow, each emitting a vague battle intent.
In comparison to the five Martial Trees, the one that Qin Nan had refined previously was significantly weaker.
Even Martial Trees were classified into various levels. For example, the Martial Sacred Realm was categorized into the peak Martial Sacred Realm, Undefeatable Sacred Realm, Law-Defying Martial Sacred Realm, or personal unique Martial Sacred Realm. The sacred force of each Martial Sacred Realm was different than each other, thus the Martial Tree produced by the sacred force would be different too.
Qin Nan wore a surprised look.
Six Martial Trees were now all one-zhang tall. If they were stacked onto one another, the total height would be six zhang!
Despite that, the strength of the Martial Progenitor Realm was not directly proportional to the height of the Martial Trees. Apart from the height of six-zhang tall, each of the Monarch Arts on the Martial Trees was refined to a terrifying state too.
However, at this moment, forces of the Heavens and Earth began to descend upon the place.
"Mm? A Tribulation? As I thought, the Tribulation would only be triggered when I achieved the first-layer Martial Progenitor Realm…" Qin Nan showed no sign of fear seeing this. Instead, he let out a relieved sigh.
Once he overcame the Tribulation, his Martial Trees would be able to grow rapidly.
It was possible that he could also produce more force of the Divine God of Battle.
Qin Nan was startled when he realized something all of a sudden.
