Zhou Yuan intently stared at the wind spirit rune’s mother body, which was exuding a very ancient aura. It was only after a good while that he gradually calmed down. He then sent out a request through his Spirit to the mottled divine grindstone. After all, the wind spirit rune’s mother body existed above the divine grindstone. Without the divine grindstone’s permission, his Spirit would be crushed if it dared to approach.
After receiving Zhou Yuan’s request, the divine grindstone didn’t refuse. As long as it didn’t touch on the question of principle, it generally wouldn’t refuse Zhou Yuan’s requests, because this was an order left by Cang Yuan when he had created it.
In a sense, anyone who had practiced the Primal Chaos Divine Grindstone Visualization Method had the power to control it, but Zhou Yuan was now still too weak to do so. It was currently impossible for him.
When the divine grindstone allowed Zhou Yuan’s request, he immediately sat down happily. Then, his Spirit power gradually approached the mottled divine grindstone.
As his Spirit power drew closer, Zhou Yuan could feel the terrifying oppressive power brought about by the divine grindstone. Even though the grindstone had deliberately reduced the pressure, it still made Zhou Yuan’s Spirit power tremble violently. It was as if his Spirit was about to fade.
Fortunately, Zhou Yuan forcibly withstood its oppressive power, and his Spirit power eventually approached the wind spirit rune’s mother body.
With his Spirit power, he hovered around the mother body of the wind spirit rune, feeling its mysterious pulsing aura.
This aura was a bit similar to the Genesis marks’ of the wind spirit rune but much more vast.
Zhou Yuan’s Spirit power settled on top of the wind spirit rune’s mother body, constantly familiarizing itself with the mother body’s aura and operating marks. After almost half an hour, he finally withdrew his Spirit power.
Zhou Yuan’s face took on a thoughtful expression. He stretched out his finger and trailed it across the air. Countless Genesis marks gushed out, gradually forming a complex and obscure Genesis Rune in the air. It was the Genesis Rune structure that he had spent a lot of time deriving. But because of the lack of a core material, the Genesis Rune remained lifeless.
Zhou Yuan began to copy the aura of the wind spirit rune’s mother body. Zhou Yuan’s Spirit suddenly surged, and his Spirit power rapidly gathered in front of him.
At the beginning, the copying consistently failed, but as he continued to fail, he became increasingly skilled at trying to copy it. After all, the body was in front of his eyes and he could correct the errors at any time.
It was unknown how many failures happened before a subtle aura copied by his Spirit finally appeared in front of Zhou Yuan.
The moment a wisp of aura appeared in front of Zhou Yuan, he distinctly saw a faint light bloom from the wind spirit rune’s mother body above the mottled divine grindstone.
Zhou Yuan was overjoyed, but he remained calm and focused. With a thought, the wisp of aura hovering in front of him drifted towards one of the Genesis Rune shells and landed in the most core area and settled itself in.
The moment it started to flow, the lifeless Genesis Rune immediately erupted in dazzling rays of light, as if it had been resurrected.
Zhou Yuan operated his Spirit to slowly compress the Genesis Rune, and he eventually shrank it to the size of a fist. He quickly took out a blank jade bamboo slip and engraved the fist-sized Genesis Rune onto it.
The new Genesis Rune that he had created finally formed!
“Finally succeeded…” Zhou Yuan’s face flushed with excitement. Immediately, his Spirit rolled up the jade bamboo slip, pierced through the wind layer and returned to the main body.
“Let’s give it a test run!”
Zhou Yuan rummaged through his spatial bag for a good while before finally finding a pitiful origin coin in a dark corner. It had to have been forgotten about.
“I am so poor already?” Zhou Yuan muttered, took it out and then quickly burned it.
As the last origin coin was burned, an azure wind whizzed down from the sky.
Zhou Yuan quickly shattered the jade bamboo slip to pieces. Rays of light surged, and a Genesis Rune appeared on his chest. It wasn’t a net pattern like the Mark Capturing Rune, but it resembled a small vortex…
The astral spirit wind shrouded the area, and slashed his body like a blade.
Zhou Yuan’s concentrated intently.
As wisps of astral wind slashed his body, he sensed the Genesis marks contained in the astral spirit wind.
When they touched his flesh, the Genesis Rune vortex on his chest seemingly reacted.
Then, Zhou Yuan distinctly felt that the astral spirit wind that passed his body had frozen for a moment. His eyes widened when he saw multiple tiny Genesis marks separate from the astral spirit wind and automatically plunge into the Genesis Rune vortex.
Half an hour later, when the astral spirit wind dispersed, Zhou Yuan opened his eyes wide.
“The effect is nearly 50% higher than usual!” Zhou Yuan exclaimed. It should be said that the Mark Capturing Rune only improved the effect by around 20%, while his Genesis Rune had an increase of 50%?!
If the Genesis marks contained in each astral spirit wind was 100%, then 40% could be absorbed by the body without the use of any external objects. But with the help of the Mark Capturing Rune, this could reach 60%, and his Genesis Rune could increase the efficiency to 90%!
That increase of 30% shouldn’t be underestimated. Over time, it definitely wouldn’t be a small amount.
This effect simply surprised Zhou Yuan.
“Is this the difference between passive and active methods?” Zhou Yuan couldn’t help but smack his lips. He had previously speculated that using the aura of the wind spirit rune’s mother body as the core of the Genesis rune might have a significant effect on the Genesis marks of the wind spirit rune, but he had still underestimated the attractive force of the mother body’s aura to the Genesis marks of the wind spirit rune.
“Fifty percent is too high, this should be because my copy of the wind spirit rune’s mother body is too perfect. If I were to produce the Genesis Runes on a large scale in the future, it doesn’t need to be so perfect. Otherwise, it would waste my energy and time.”
Zhou Yuan’s eyes flickered. The effect of the Mark Capturing Rune was only 20%, so he felt that he could suppress the effect of his Genesis Rune to 40% for selling. As for those with 50% effect, he could give it to some trustworthy people, such as Ye Bingling, Yi Qiushui, and Liu Zhixuan…
Overall, this was a success.
Zhou Yuan revealed a relieved expression and then sat cross-legged again. His Spirit broke out, passed through the wind layer and arrived at the divine grindstone.
He needed to mass produce the runes for the following day.
So, for the rest of the night, Zhou Yuan constantly copied the aura of the wind spirit runes’ mother body and then created pieces of new jade bamboo slips engraved with Genesis Runes.
When early morning came, more than two hundred jade bamboo slips were floating in front of him.
Zhou Yuan’s Spirit reached out its palm and clasped a jade bamboo slip. He peered down at the Genesis Rune engraved on it, and a satisfied smile curved his lips.
“I haven’t named it yet…
“I’ll call it Mother Wind Rune.”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
