After refining two furnace of first grade questioning inner heart pills and two furnace of second grade questioning inner heart pills, Yang Chen finally went out.
This retreat of Yang Chen took fifteen years. When he was concentrating on his cultivation, he didn’t feel the passage of time. Only when he was out of the cultivation state did he realize that such a long time has passed.
The sect didn’t seem to have changed by much, but the spirits and vigor on the faces of the sect’s disciples seemed to be different, all of them were very proud.
When he saw his master, he became happy again. In these years, Gao Yue has already prepared the dragon horns and started the refining work. Because the difficulty of refining was extremely high, this process would continue for at least decades.
His master ancestor has also been helping, and was very satisfied with Yang Chen’s promotion. After encouraging him, he wanted Yang Chen to make persistent efforts.
When the master of the palace met Yang Chen, he said a lot. The things happening in the sect and the things happening outside, as long as they were related to the Pure Yang Palace, he knew basically everything.
In the past few years, the Pure Yang Palace has recruited thousands of highly qualified outer sect disciples. After undergoing repeated evaluations, most of the new students have been sent to the Blue Vault Mountain immortal cave. Judging from the current appearance of the Pure Yang Palace, the strength of the Pure Yang Palace has not improved a lot and it was developing step by step.
The Wine Immortal House and Pure Yang Palace have now cooperated with each other. In some positions, the Pure Yang Palace has inserted their core disciples. Nowadays, major events and incidents outside the sect basically cannot escape the control of the Pure Yang Palace and it was convenient for the Pure Yang Palace to adjust its external strategy at any time.
However, these were hidden and they never let others know. The only thing that could be said to let outsiders know that their strength has risen was that the Pure Yang Palace held a ceremony for apprenticeship more than ten years ago. At that ceremony, the Pure Yang Palace recruited hundreds of monster cultivators at one time to join their hall of eccentrics.
Among the monster cultivators which joined, there were twelve Yuanying stage masters, more than eighty Jiedan stage masters and the rest were all in the foundation stage. Although these forces were completely incomparable to those of the big sects, the sudden addition of twelve Yuanying stage masters resulted in the doubling of the high-end strength of the Pure Yang Palace, which made people frequently watch them closely.
And there was also good news, the Pure Yang Palace was equally secretive about. In the Blue Vault Mountain immortal cave, the strong ape king Hou Yun in the dacheng stage, under the frequent contact between him and the old tree demon and Wang Yong, he was also from the beginning hostile to fraternity and finally under the temptation of the questioning inner heart pills joined the Pure Yang Palace, becoming the third dacheng stage master of the Pure Yang Palace.
With three masters of the dacheng stage, many things could be solved by the Pure Yang Palace. However, Hou Yun’s joining, the Pure Yang Palace did not announce it, but let Hou Yun be a secret weapon.
Hou Yun has recently reached a bottleneck in his spirit power cultivation and was stuck in the middle dacheng stage. The Pure Yang Palace was not bad to him and he was sent one questioning inner heart pill directly, allowing Hou Yun to go into seclusion. At least in the past ten years, it was estimated that Hou Yun would spend it in retreat.
After all, Hou Yun was different from the masters of these large sect. He has always been confined to the Blue Vault Mountain immortal cave. He has not traveled. He couldn’t compare with those masters in terms of vision and knowledge.

Even with the help of the transformation secret art and the systematic cultivation method provided by the Pure Yang Palace, it took him several times more to cross his bottleneck than those of the other masters. When he completed the retreat, regardless of whether he was successful or not, the Pure Yang Palace would arrange for him to go out to gain experience and increase his knowledge.
There were more and more core disciples. The hundreds of top-quality flying swords that Yang Chen brought back last time have also been distributed. It has increased the core disciples’ combat effectiveness by a huge step.
Now the Pure Yang Palace was also like those big sects. After consolidating their Jiedan stage realm and becoming core disciples, it was necessary to begin to quenching their life source flying swords. Compared to the Yuanying stage, no suitable magic weapon could be found as the life source flying sword. It was already the difference between heaven and earth.
All the things happening in the Pure Yang Palace were good things. The sect was flourishing. No wonder the disciples were full of vitality.
Prior to Yang Chen’s retreat, some people were having ideas on him. In this regard, the Wine Immortal House spent a lot of effort to investigate. The idea came from the mouths of some high ranking members of the Greatest Heaven Sect, but it was supported by several people who practiced alchemy, such as the Pill Cauldron Sect and several concocting pills sects and some rogue cultivators alchemy masters.
This was purely a matter of blocking Yang Chen and it was also a conspiracy to provoke greed and deliberate chaos. Maybe in the confusion, someone could really find a hint of Yang Chen’s alchemy. By then, everyone was likely to make a profit.
This technique seems to be clumsy, but it was very effective. The Pure Yang Palace has issued harsh wording notes to several ancestral sects, no matter what attitude they want to cope with, they should not be polite when it comes to the manipulators behind the scenes.
But everyone was afraid of those masters who needed Yang Chen’s alchemy, so they had to restrain themselves, at least on the surface, they had to stay on good terms with him and even call everything a misunderstanding.
In this regard, Yang Chen was not surprised. Even if Yang Chen did not reach the fifth level, outsiders would have a lot of guesses. After all, the questioning inner heart pill was a good way to make people tempted. Moreover, to those people, Yang Chen didn’t take them seriously. Were there few people who wanted Yang Chen’s life these years?
Palace Master Zhang Jiao was very nervous, he completely forgot that Yang Chen had brought back the corpse of the second city master. It seems that the positioning of Yang Chen in the mind of the head of the palace was also getting heavier, otherwise he wouldn’t feel so.
The Five Elements Sect and Qiankun Sect could be regarded as being fortunate, because they had friendship with the Blue Cloud Sect Green Jade Immortal Island, they were among the first batch to know that Yang Chen had become a fifth grade alchemy master so their request was faster.
The two major sects were seeking pills, questioning inner heart pills. During the fifteen years of Yang Chen’s retreat, another dacheng stage master in the Green Jade Immortal Island also broke through after taking the questioning inner heart pill.
In just two decades, four consecutive dacheng stage masters have appeared because of the questioning inner heart pills and the entire cultivation world was going completely crazy. Countless people wanted to get a questioning inner heart pill, but there was always a price and no market. No matter how high the price was, no one would sell it.
The Five Elements Sect and Qiankun Sect simply wanted questioning inner heart pills at all costs. Both sects knew that if the Blue Cloud Sect and Green Jade Immortal Island always occupied this advantage, it would not be a dream for them to surpass them comprehensively, but it was already becoming a reality.
For this reason, the price that the two sects mentioned to the Pure Yang Palace almost made the master of the palace who have been used to good things in recent years a little dazed.
Of course, the benefits of Yang Chen were indispensable and Yang Chen’s remuneration even surpassed those from the Blue Cloud Sect and Green Jade Immortal Island.
This was quite easy to understand. At first, the two sects were eager to show their loyalty, and at the same time, Yang Chen’s status was also different than in the past.
The fire seeds needed by Yang Chen were prepared by both sects, and even the duplicated parts were deliberately eliminated. It must be said that these large sects were very rich.
In addition to providing the same number of fire seeds as the Blue Cloud Sect and Green Jade Immortal Island, there were other things. The materials for alchemy were naturally prepared by themselves. In addition, everyone seems to know that Yang Chen liked to read miscellaneous books. They prepared 20,000 volumes of miscellaneous books and some rare medicinal materials.
The most important reward was not in the material object, but rather their pledge to provide a favour. Both the Five Elements Sect and Qiankun Sect were willing to provide Yang Chen with a demanded opportunity. As long as Yang Chen spoke, without prejudice to the interests of the two sects, the two sects could do one thing for Yang Chen unconditionally.
This price was really staggering. Whether it was the Five Elements Sect or the Qiankun Sect, it was estimated that they needed just say one sentence to change the dynasties of the mortal world.
In order to obtain questioning inner heart pills, the two sects also tried their best to win Yang Chen’s favour.
Of course, it doesn’t matter to Yang Chen. Anyway, the Blue Cloud Sect and Green Jade Immortal Island have all taken the lead. After decades, refining for the Five Elements Sect and Qiankun Sect was not a big deal. The key was to pull the two ancestral sects to the side of the Pure Yang Palace, and at least to have them speak for Pure Yang Palace on key issues.
It’s just that the two sects have to discuss which one comes first. The master of the palace also asked Yang Chen what he thought about it. After thinking for a moment, Yang Chen suddenly smiled “let me just make a furnace of refining first, let the two divide it equally, then I will make another furnace of pills after 25 years and then they will divide it evenly, it’s fine like this. “
This was the intention of many rogue cultivation masters. The two sects have great assets and naturally would not think of this. The palace master still has a headache for how to coordinate the relationship between the two parties. This was indeed a good idea that does not hurt and could benefit both parties.
The two furnaces of questioning inner heart pills he refined before, Yang Chen simply gave it to the master of the palace. As long as the time comes, he only needs to take out one part and then take another part after twenty-five years. For Yang Chen, in the next 50 years, for the time being, he does not need to consider refining alchemy for others.
Of course, Yang Chen’s refining now has at least thirty questioning inner heart pills, and the two badge for the two sects were at most twenty, equal to that of the Blue Cloud Sect and Green Jade Immortal Island.
Each sect would be given two second grade questioning inner heart pills, which was also a balanced consideration. As for saying that the two sects paid more, this was also a matter they couldn’t do anything about. Who made the two sect not optimistic about the Pure Yang Palace at first and did not cooperate with the Pure Yang Palace from the beginning? Who would have thought that the small Pure Yang Palace would develop so much in a hundred years, and they would have such a monstrous talent Alchemist Master?
After the two major sects get the questioning inner heart pills, their strength would probably skyrocket in the short term. At that time, the faces of the high-level members of the Greatest Heaven Sect would definitely not look good.
They just didn’t know that under the hesitation of the Greatest Heaven Sect, they found that even the Five Elements Sect and Qiankun Sect has acquired questioning inner heart pills. Should they regret not having removed Yang Chen as soon as possible, or should they regret not cooperating with the Pure Yang Palace earlier?
Yang Chen’s goal was to make the martial arts sects that competed with the Greatest Heaven Sect develop vigorously. Even when it was time to eliminate the Greatest Heaven Sect, it would not be done by his sect alone. The other sects who have been oppressed by Greatest Heaven Sect these years were not only the Pure Yang Palace.
He thought it would be uneventful for the time being, but the appearance of Shangguan Feng brought Yang Chen some bad news.
With the support of Yang Chen and Scar, the Ten Thousand Treasure Tower hosted by Shangguan Feng in the Thousand Autumn Pavilion was also booming. Now several semi branches have been opened. The business has not only achieved control in the 100,000 mountains, but also in several famous markets, there were also Ten Thousand Treasure Tower branches.
Shangguan Feng came to Yang Chen and told Yang Chen that he had just received news. Ten Thousand Treasure Tower opened a branch in the South China Sea. Someone had uprooted it some time ago, and today he got the news. Knowing that Yang Chen was out of seclusion, Shangguan Feng didn’t dare to specialize, so he hurried to tell Yang Chen.
“Is there something wrong with our people?” Yang Chen frowned, but still asked about the people in charge over there if they were injured. They were both disciples of the Pure Yang Palace. Generally, when they felt that they have no hope in cultivation, then they would switch to business. They also look forward to leaving some wealth to their descendants.
“They are all gone.” Shangguan Feng’s eyes were bloodshot. He also knew that some small property would not be placed in Yang Chen’s heart, but things were cruel. He could only tell the truth: “the people and goods are gone. Those people have no plans to keep them alive. “
“Southern Sea? rogue cultivator alliance?” Yang Chen chewed these two words, and asked after a while “Who did it?”
“It is a casual rogue cultivator alliance that is called Hidden Dragon Cave.” Shangguan Feng replied with his teeth gritted. “In the news from the wine Immortal house, the people in the Hidden Dragon Cave saw a few magic weapons, and they did not buy it after arguing with others, so they destroyed Ten Thousand Treasure Tower to vent their anger. “
As he said, Shangguan Feng slammed the wall with a punch: “The people I spent decades training, the smallest buddy, also said that he wanted to buy a good flying sword for his son. His son has better aptitude than him, and is already a disciple valued by the sect! “During the talk, Shangguan Feng almost shed tears:” It’s only been ten years and they are gone! “
Shangguan Feng got along with those guys and their relationship was really unusual. Hearing bad news was also very sad.
“Hidden Dragon Cave?” Yang Chen’s voice added a bit of coldness.
The name of the Hidden Dragon Cave was no stranger to Yang Chen. In the memory of his previous lives, the Hidden Dragon Cave was actually a peripheral organization of the Greatest Heaven Sect. It was secretive and does the things that were not convenient for the Greatest Heaven Sect to do themselves. These guys were fierce and have left only a few living witnesses. They were also an arrogant alliance in the South China Sea. Although their scale was not the largest, no one was willing to provoke it.
Even if the people in the Hidden Dragon Cave didn’t attack him, Yang Chen won’t make the people in the Hidden Dragon Cave feel better. What’s more, now that the people in the Hidden Dragon Cave dare to touch the disciples of the Pure Yang Palace.
How could Yang Chen miss the opportunity that was delivered to his door? It was revenge and resentment. At the same time, it also cut off the outer arms of the Greatest Heaven Sect, weakening the power of Greatest Heaven Sect, which was killing two birds with one stone.
“I’ll take a trip by myself!” Yang Chen has been in seclusion and he hasn’t been out for a long time, he would just take this opportunity to go out and cultivate. Moreover, this kind of thing that was the beheading of the Greatest Heaven Sect’s minions, Yang Chen would never use other people to complete the task. He had to do it himself to make it more vivid and satisfying.
Yang Chen’s tone and content of speech sounded extremely calm. However, after doing business for hundreds of years, Shangguan Feng, who has just been promoted to the Jiedan stage, has long been accustomed to watching. Yang Chen seemed calm, but there was a slow exudation of a killing aura from the inside. Even Shangguan Feng, who was close to Yang Chen, could not help fighting a cold war.
