One month later, in the small world within the Silken Mountainriver Diagram.
A wave of thunderous rumbling suddenly sounded out from Chen Xi’s body as his entire body trembled intensely, and his body was washed by boundless Shaman Energy, causing his skin, internal organs, flesh, and entire body to emit clear rumbling from inside out.
On his back, the nine Shaman Marking emitted nine dazzling rays of light that were azure, crimson, black, gold, and so on forth. The rays of light condensed in midair to transform into a mysterious and profound nebula pattern.
At the instant the nebula pattern appeared, it emanated boundless and dazzling lights that illuminated the world like a natural phenomenon, and it only dissipated slowly after a long time.
Perfection-stage of the Golden Core Realm in body refinement, successful!
Chen Xi took a deep breath, causing his body to instantly emit rumbling sounds as his Shaman Energy surged. Besides his blood, flesh, and bones becoming even more crystalline and strong, even the internal organs within his body were glowing, and they were like numerous little suns.
As soon as he slightly exerted force, his internal organs would emit a wave of sounds that were like mountain torrents surging out explosively. Moreover, they emitted the brilliance like that of a treasure as they ceaselessly shook along a strange rhythm, and they emanated a formidable aura.
Chen Xi was able to clearly sense that his internal organs were like numerous enormous stars that were crystalline and translucent, tough and strong, and along with his breathing, they produced a strange rhythmic movement, were suffused with a glow, and were filled with vigor.
Even my heart is crystalline, translucent, and is comparable in toughness to my bones. I’m absolutely capable of occupying a greatly advantageous position while in battle because of this! Chen Xi was both shocked and delighted.
The greatest vulnerability of body refiners was their hearts and heads. Presently, his heart was tough like a crystal and filled with vigor, so even if it encountered a heavy injury, so long as his vitality remained, it would be completely capable of being repaired to an undamaged state!
After that, Chen Xi hammered himself with his fist.
An enormous band that was like a god striking a drum resounded out, and his internal organs, flesh, and bones resonated in unison and emitted a brilliant light.
This allowed him to instantly confirm that after he’d advanced to the perfection-stage of the Golden Core Realm, the strength of his body had increased greatly once more. Not only was it reflected in his Shaman Energy, even his skin, blood, flesh, bones, and internal organs were extremely tough, to the point it was difficult to injure them with weapons!
Moreover, he also noticed that his current body’s muscles and tendons were tough and flexible like the tendons of bulls that had been tempered a hundred times, his flesh and blood were condensed and filled with vigor, his bones were jade while like crystals, his internal organs were translucent and bright like jade, and even his skin was transparent and shiny.
His entire body from inside out was like the purest glass, utterly untainted!
This was the materialization when the body was strong to a certain extent, causing every single inch of the entire body to seem as if it was constructed from crystal and glass, and even if one walked within a muddy swamp, one’s body wouldn’t be tainted by dirt in the slightest!
Supposedly, the exalted Fiendgods that roamed freely in the world during ancient times had cultivations of the body that had attained an extremely high level, and their entire body was capable of emitting the extremely shocking phenomenon of the heavens and the earth like flowers raining from the sky, rays of light surging out from beneath their feet, the sound of the Dao filling the sky, everything in the world singing praise to them, and so on and so forth.
Presently, Chen Xi’s entire body produced a rhythmic movement from inside out that was like the sound of the Dao, and it was completely untainted. When his body refinement cultivation advanced once more, it would be able to reveal phenomena like the Ancient Fiendgods and allow him to possess boundless strength.
How formidable! Even though his body refinement cultivation had only advanced by a stage, Chen Xi still directly perceived that his current strength in body refinement had almost increased by 20%.
Chen Xi didn’t utilize his True Essence and Shaman Energy, he merely utilized the strength of his body to directly jump down from a 3km tall mountain with an enormous bang. Dust and smoke suffused the air as the ground quaked intensely, and he smashed out an enormous pit on the ground as cracks stretched out in all directions towards the distance.
Chen Xi was utterly unharmed as he walked out from the smoke and dust while being full of spirit and energy, and his entire body was relaxed and completely untainted by dirt. He arrived at the foot of the mountain before his arms stretched out to press onto the walls of the mountain, and then he shouted out loudly. “RISE!”
A 3km tall mountain of unknown weight was instantly uprooted by Chen Xi’s arms, and the ground beneath his feet emitted a wave of cracking sounds instead as it was unable to endure this sort of pressure.
This was a true manifestation of possessing the strength to uproot mountains!
When looked at from afar, even though Chen Xi looked thin and little at this moment, his strength was as great as a young Ancient Fiendgod, and he possessed boundless strength that could topple mountains and move the sea!
By merely relying on my current cultivation in body refinement, I ought to be able to easily rank in the top 10 of the Allstar Meeting. But, I can’t be careless as the other geniuses probably have many formidable abilities as well, and I have to be on guard against them… Chen Xi didn’t continue testing his strength, he tossed away the mountain in his hands and pondered for a moment before sitting down cross-legged and charging towards the perfection-stage of the Golden Core Realm in qi refinement.
Within Silken Palace, Emperor Chu who was drinking and discussing the Dao with the Earthly Immortal Realm experts seemed to have noticed something, and an imperceptible radiance flashed within the depths of his eyes. A cultivation technique that tempers the body with the energy of the stars? Moreover, according to rumor, this kid is skilled in the Dao of Talismans…
Could it be that there’s really a slight connection between him and that almighty figure of legend who possessed exceedingly high attainments?
Interesting. Even though this kid’s identity is slightly special, he’s worthy of being paid attention to. Let’s see how far he can go in the Allstar Meeting… Emperor Chu’s eyes were deep like an abyss, and he seemed to be lost in thought.
A month had passed within the Silken Mountainriver Diagram, yet only four hours had passed in the outside world.
After cultivating to the perfection-stage of the Golden Core Realm in body refinement, Chen Xi spent almost another three months of time to advance his qi refinement cultivation to the perfection-stage of the Golden Core Realm.
With the Dao Insight and Dao Heart cultivation he possessed at this moment and coupled with the trace of Immortal Energy contained within the Silken Mountainriver Diagram, advancing to the perfection-stage of the Golden Core Realm was something that came without effort.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Under the dim glow of moonlight, numerous sword qi that were fine like flowing lights whistled out both horizontally and vertically in his surroundings to mince space itself, and its might was shocking.
Chen Xi had just advanced to the perfection-stage of the Golden Core Realm, so his entire mind and body was in a clear, full, pure, and flawless state, and it just happened to be suitable to comprehend Sword Dao.
Only through persistence would one be able to attain accomplishments in the Sword Dao.
Only by blazing forward boldly through all obstacles and slashing away the injustice in one’s heart would one’s Sword Insight become perfect and unobstructed.
Even though the changes in the eight great sword moves of the Myriad Convergence Sword Scripture is boundlessly complicated, yet if one is bound by its changes and loses the thought of forging ahead fiercely, it meant failure. Combining all the changes within one sword is the true quintessence of the Myriad Convergence Sword Scripture.
Doesn’t ‘Myriad Convergence’ represent the convergence of a myriad of changes into a single sword strike?
The various comprehensions he’d accumulated from the ceaselessly slaughters and battles he’d fought in these past few years gushed into appearance in Chen Xi’s heart like pierces of tidewater, and his understanding of the Myriad Convergence Sword Scripture grew deeper and deeper.
Suddenly, he stood up with his sword in hand, and then he slashed out towards the sky.
This strike of Chen Xi’s transformed into his vast will, and his persistent Dao Heart to pursue the Heaven Dao. The various Dao Insight energies he possessed surged and roiled out like landslides and tidal waves, and all of it was contained within this sword strike.
A sword light charged into the sky, and it was unprecedentedly mighty. It seemed to contain the vastness of the sky and the denseness of the earth, water, and fire were born within it, wind and lightning were resonating within it… Various supreme Grand Dao profundities were gathered on this sword strike.
The sky was slashed apart by this strike.
The airflow became chaotic because of this strike.
Infinite amounts of lightning, gales, raging flames, and torrents of water surged up and gushed out violently from this sword light, and the scene it revealed was like a world that was ceaselessly experiencing rebirth and annihilation.
Changes, they occurred in an instant, yet all of them were contained within this sword strike!
“Hmm?” Within Silken Palace, the eyelids of Emperor Chu jerked as a bolt of cold lightning shot out from his eyes, and a terrifying aura that caused the heavens and the earth to tremble gushed out from his entire body, shocking all the Earthly Immortal Realm experts to the point their bodies shook and they revealed shocked expressions as they shut their mouths in unison.
A bustling atmosphere at the scene instantly became deathly silent.
“It’s nothing. It’s just that the actions of a little fellow cultivating in the Silken Mountainriver Diagram was slightly loud. Let’s continue drinking wine.” Emperor Chu restrained his aura and waved his hand as he spoke indifferently.
The expressions of everyone eased up, yet they were extremely curious in their hearts. Just the cultivation of a little fellow caused his Majesty to reveal a trace of shock? Was this something an ordinary person was capable of doing? And which sect is that little fellow from?
Unfortunately, this strike only combined seven types of sword moves, and it’s still slightly lacking before being able to combine all eight great sword moves into a single strike…
Chen Xi who was within the world of the Silken Mountainriver Diagram didn’t know that his sword strike from before had caused Emperor Chu to be slightly shocked, and he was only feeling slightly regretful at this moment.
The Myriad Convergence Sword Scripture was divided into eight levels.
Merely grasping the eight sword moves could only be considered as learning the basics, and it was the first level.
Combining every two sword moves of the eight great sword moves together into one strike was the second level.
Combining three sword moves into one was the third level.
Repeated in order up until the eight sword moves are completely combined and utilized into one sword strike, then it was the eight level of the Myriad Convergence Sword Scripture. At this point, the entire sword technique could be said to have been perfected.
Presently, Chen Xi was only capable of combining seven sword moves into one, and he was still a step away from cultivating the Myriad Convergence Sword Scripture to perfection, so he naturally couldn’t avoid feeling slightly regretful in his heart.
But he knew as well that as the sword technique was the most difficult to cultivate in the cultivation world, the Myriad Convergence Sword Scripture was something that most people were utterly incapable of even grasping the basics of. So his ability of cultivating it to the seventh level was already sufficient for him to be proud of himself.
In the following period of time, Chen Xi was wholeheartedly immersed in the cultivation of the sword, and he was completely unaware of the passage of time.
Unknowingly, the time limit of a year had arrived.
“Allotted time is finished, all of you, come out quickly! The battles are about to begin!” On this day, the voice of Emperor Chu suddenly resounded out within the entire world of the Silken Mountainriver Diagram.
Subsequently, numerous brilliant lights enveloped down to teleport Chen Xi, Qing Xiuyi, Zhao Qinghe, and all the others out of the Silken Mountainriver Diagram.
When Chen Xi opened his eyes in a daze and saw clearly that he was already in Silken Palace, he completely sobered up.
The others were either sitting cross-legged or laying on the ground sleeping, and their expressions were extremely dazed. At this moment, all of them sobered up successively, and then they stood up solemnly.
“After experiencing meditation for a year, all of your conditions have surely attained a peak level. Next, I’ll set up a battleground in the sky of Silken City and allow all the cultivators in the city to witness the battles.
“No matter if it’s for the sake of the rewards or for the sake of glory, I hope that all of you can fight with all your strengths and display the unparalleled ability of the geniuses of my Darchu Dynasty’s younger generation!” On the throne at the center that had nine dragons on it, Emperor Chu’s gaze swept everyone as he spoke out with a voice that was clear and melodious like a bell and resounded with a rumble, and it spread out into the nine heavens and even all the cultivators all over Silken City were able to heart it exceedingly clearly.
