Chapter 1216: All Prepared
Xiao Yan was
seated cross-legged on the bed within his room. His finger was rubbing a
blood-red Storage Ring in his hand. It was the ring he had forcefully
snatched from Yi Chen’s hand. This fellow possessed a high position
within the Profound Sky Sect. It was likely that the things within the
ring would not be too lousy.
“This is interest…”
softly laughed. A thought passed through his mind and a trace of
Spiritual Strength spread from between his brows. After which, it
invaded the blood-red Storage Ring. However, the Spiritual Strength had
just made contact with the ring when it was repelled by a force.
“A spiritual imprint has been placed on it, huh…”
Yan raised his eyebrows when his Spiritual Strength was repelled. The
strength of that Yi Chen was quite great. However, if they were to
compare his strength in terms of Spiritual Strength, it was likely that
even ten Yi Chen were unable to surpass Xiao Yan. This kind of spiritual
imprint appeared to be without any defensive properties from Xiao Yan’s
point of view.
Xiao Yan’s finger gently rubbed over the blood-red
Storage Ring. A vast and mighty strength surged out like floodwaters.
One could hear a slight cracking sound as the spiritual imprint within
the Storage Ring was forcefully removed by Xiao Yan.
removing the spiritual imprint on the Storage Ring, Xiao Yan’s Spiritual
Strength finally entered it without any obstacles. He briefly searched
it and a blood-red scroll appeared in his hand with a flash.
“Blood Evil Skill.”
Yan swept his eyes over the scroll. After which, they paused on the
three blood-red words at the top. A wave of a dense bloody scent
immediately poured out of it.
Xiao Yan carefully opened the
scroll. He briefly glanced at the introduction to this Qi Method within
the scroll, and his brows were involuntarily knit. A moment later, he
softly said, “It is indeed bloody. This kind of Qi Method is far to evil
and also far too cruel. Swallowing the flesh and blood of others to
absorb the other party’s Dou Qi. This kind of tactic is really vicious.”
so-called Blood Evil Skill could be considered a top level Qi Method
even within the Profound Sky Sect. This was something that could be
observed from how Yi Chen managed to rely on it to reach the peak of the
Dou Zong class when he was only around thirty years old. Although there
were other reasons like his outstanding talent, most of it was due to
the unusual process of this Blood Evil Skill.
“However, this kind
of tactic that relies on absorbing the strength of others to become
stronger is not considered an excellent one. If one absorbs too much Dou
Qi, one’s own Dou Qi will have difficulty becoming pure. After reaching
a certain level, one would have difficulty advancing even an inch
forward. Unless one scatters one’s power and retrains, one would even
gradually suffer a backlash from the impure Dou Qi.”
reading this so-called Blood Evil Skill, Xiao Yan also managed to find
some of the drawbacks of this Qi Method. This thing would allow one to
swiftly grow strong, but the sequelae was really too great. Moreover,
the process was also extremely cruel and bloody. Unless it was someone
who was naturally cold and indifferent, one would not be able to
practice this kind of Qi Method.
“Profound Sky Sect… what an evil sect.”
Yan shook his head and randomly stored this Blood Evil Skill into his
Storage Ring. No matter how one put it, this could barely be considered a
Di class high level Qi Method. If he took it out to be auctioned in the
future, he would definitely be able to exchange it for some extremely
After Xiao Yan took the Blood Evil Skill, he
searched for a while, but he did not find anything else that could
interest him. Just when he planned on giving up, his sweeping Spiritual
Strength suddenly stopped in a certain part of the Storage Ring. There
was an inconspicuous, gray scroll. Xiao Yan could vaguely sense a faint
killing intent seeping out of the scroll.
Yan narrowed his eyes. This kind of killing aura was something that he
was familiar with. After recalling this familiarity, he finally
discovered that it seemed to be powerful Dou Skill that Yi Chen had used
near the end of their match. It contained a murderous aura that seemed
to snatch the mind of another.
Xiao Yan clenched his hand. A
gray-colored scroll appeared in it. He flicked his finger and pulled it
open. A couple of ordinary words, permeated with killing intent,
appeared in his sight.
“Heaven Offering Demon Hand…”
Yan softly mumbled those words. A glint flashed across his eyes at the
same time. This thing was indeed the final attack that Yi Chen had
When they had fought earlier, Xiao Yan had
personally experienced the strength of this so-called Heaven Offering
Demon Hand. That sharp killing intent was indeed extremely strong.
Fortunately, Yi Chen had clearly yet to master it to its peak. His
killing aura had been significantly diluted, perhaps because the Bloody
Qi in his body was overly dense.
This Heaven Offering Demon Hand
required an unhesitating desire to kill. Such a killing desire was born
from one’s thoughts. It was not something that could be supplemented by
relying on Blood Qi.
“This thing could be considered one of the
ultimate skills of the Profound Sky Sect. Its strength is definitely
beyond what Yi Chen had displayed. That fellow is far too arrogant. This
caused him to be unable to understand the true meaning of the Heaven
Offering Demon Hand…” Xiao Yan carefully studied this scroll before
exhaling a deep breath and speaking with some interest.
Xiao Yan’s guess, if this Heaven Offering Demon Hand were to be fully
unleashed, its might would likely only be able surpassed if one learned
the fifth seal of the God Seal Skill. This thing was indeed unique for
it to become an ultimate skill within the Profound Sky Sect.
Yan’s hand gently rubbed the scroll. The smile on his face became more
dense. It was unexpected that Yi Chen would deliver such a treasure this
time around. If Xiao Yan was able to learn this Heaven Offering Demon
Hand, his fighting strength would definitely rise. He would also possess
an additional fighting technique when battling with others in the
Moreover, they would begin their operation to rescue Yao
Lao very soon. By having this Heaven Offering Demon Hand delivered to
him, it must be said that Yi Chen was just like a timely downpour…
to the need to wait for the arrival of Feng zun-zhe, Xiao Yan’s group
still had time to prepare. Though, such a dangerous operation would
appear rushed no matter how long one had to prepare. Hence, Xiao Yan had
once again chosen to undertake a retreat after having obtained the
information from the three great heads.
During this retreat, Xiao
Yan not only needed to help Tian Huo zun-zhe refine the Fungus Green
Pill before Feng zun-zhe arrived, but he would also need to find some
time to familiarize and practice the Heaven Offering Demon Hand. One
additional skill would mean an additional net of safety. Similarly, it
would also mean that his confidence to succeed would increase.
Regardless of whether this would be insignificant or not, it would be
better prepare more in order to rescue Yao Lao.
The Little Fairy
Doctor and the others were helpless in the face of Xiao Yan’s somewhat
crazy retreat. After having followed Xiao Yan around for so many years,
she was aware of just how much effort Xiao Yan had put in to rescue his
teacher. Now that everything was falling into place, he would naturally
not dare to relax even a little.
Being influenced by Xiao Yan, the
Little Fairy Doctor and Tian Huo zun-zhe did not leave during this
period of time. They understood the importance of this operation to Xiao
Yan. Therefore, they tried to increase their strength a little in order
to boost their likelihood of success.
The insane training of
these people caused Xuan Kong Zi and the rest to feel a little helpless.
However, they could empathize with them. Hence, they issued the order
not to disturb Xiao Yan’s group. Moreover, they had even dispatched some
female servants there. If Xiao Yan lacked something during his pill
refinement, the Pill Tower would swiftly deliver it to him.
Half a year quietly passed while Xiao Yan undertook a retreat where he forgot to eat or sleep.
this half a month, the Pill Tower was faced with a commotion. This
commotion was due to a thundercloud suddenly appearing in the sky above
the Pill Tower. Moreover, there were two faint colors in the
thundercloud. The thundercloud was surprisingly a two-colored Pill
Lightning. From the looks of it, it was obvious that some alchemist guru
within the Pill Tower had refined a tier 8 medicinal pill.
they felt surprised at the Pill Lightning lingering in the sky, a golden
light was suddenly emitted from the Pill Tower. After which, the light
floated in the sky and received the violent strike from the two-colored
Pill Lightning in front of a countless number of speechless people.
Next, the light landed without being hurt and disappeared in a flash.
people from the Pill Tower were familiar with this scene. When the
golden-colored figure appeared, all of them understood knew was refining
a tier 8 medicinal pill, the champion of this Pill Gathering—Xiao Yan.
filled quite a number of alchemists when they figured out who was
refining this pill. Tier 8 medicinal pills were too far for them to
reach. However, it appeared as though those pills were readily available
to the hands of Xiao Yan, who appeared even younger than them. This
kind of comparison caused them to feel embarrassed. One should really
not compare two different people.
Two days after the Pill
Lightning ended, Xiao Yan finally left his half-a-month-long retreat.
However, his disheveled appearance appeared quite miserable.
Xiao Yan looked miserable, it did not hinder the excitement on his
face. After failing three times, he had finally successfully refined the
Fungus Green Pill.
Tian Huo zun-zhe, who had been guarding Xiao
Yan’s room outside, revealed a stunned expression when he saw Xiao Yan’s
miserable appearance. However, when Xiao Yan tossed him a deep-green,
round medicinal pill with a strong spiritual aura, he was instantly
excited. Without saying anything unnecessary, he grabbed the medicinal
pill and entered another chamber.
Watching how quickly he left,
Xiao Yan involuntarily laughed. During this retreat, he had not only
managed to successfully refine the Fungus Green Pill, he had also gained
a basic understanding of the Heaven Offering Demon Hand. On the whole,
he had acquired a lot…
Xiao Yan finally rested after having left
his retreat and having prepared everything he needed to. He calmly
recuperated for two days before his condition returned to its peak. The
only thing that he needed to do was to wait Feng zun-zhe to arrive.
After which… they would leave and rescue Yao Lao!
Xiao Yan wait
did not last very long. On the fifth day after he had left his retreat,
Xiao Yan was practicing the Heaven Offering Demon Hand, but he suddenly
stood up from his chair. He sensed a familiar, mighty aura appearing
within his area of perception at this moment.
Feng zun-zhe had arrived.
