What do I do?
Staring at the silver liquid and the crystal dust in front of him that refused to integrate together, Zhou Yuan felt a headache coming on. He didn’t think that the Spirit of the initial Transformative stage wouldn’t be strong enough.
But it wasn’t easy to further improve a Spirit of the Transformative stage.
Although the Spirit of the Transformative stage was simply divided into three levels—initial, intermediate and advanced—the gap between them was similar to a chasm. A Spirit of the intermediate Transformative stage was similar to the Heavenly Sun stage, while one of the advanced Transformative stage was similar to the Nascent Source stage. It was said that when a Spirit reached the Allroaming stage, it was equivalent to the Law Domain stage!
The three levels of the Transformative stage weren't simply three small levels. The gap between them was similar to that between the Divine Dwelling, Heavenly Sun and Nascent Source stages.
This was why Zhou Yuan hadn’t reached the intermediate Transformative stage despite training his Spirit nonstop.
According to his own estimation, if he wanted to step into the intermediate Transformative stage, he would still need a period of training. To suddenly break through like this was impossible.
Since he couldn’t depend on himself, it was time to seek assistance.
Zhou Yuan took out a jade tablet and crushed it.
It was to communicate with Chi Jing.
In just a few breaths after he crushed the jade tablet, space rippled within the training room, and Chi Jing’s long leg stepped forth.
“Please help, senior sister Chi Jing!” Zhou Yuan smiled bitterly.
Chi Jing cast a glance at the silver liquid flowing in front of Zhou Yuan and immediately saw the countless subtle Genesis Runes contained within it. A look of surprise came to her eyes, and she couldn’t help but ask, “This is a kind of puppet? It's so intricate. Is it a product of the Yaogui Region?”
Yaogui Region was one of the nine regions of Hunyuan Heaven, and its technique of refining puppets was unique in the world.
“But the puppet doesn't seem complete. Are you trying to perfect it?”
Zhou Yuan nodded. “Unfortunately, my Spirit isn’t strong enough, and I can’t complete the final step of integration.”
Chi Jing frowned. “I can’t help you. Although my Spirit is strong enough, I’m not proficient in this, and if I were to force it, I’m worried I would instantly destroy your puppet.”
Her Spirit was strong, but the inside of the silver liquid was too complex. Integrating it with the crystal dust would require someone specializing in Spirit cultivation. Although Chi Jing had practiced the Primal Chaos Divine Grindstone Visualisation Method, her main focus was still in Genesis Qi cultivation.
Zhou Yuan was dumbstruck. He didn't expect that even Chi Jing couldn't help.
“Then what should I do?” Zhou Yuan looked incredibly distressed.
Do I need to wait for the next opportunity? But the nine regions tournament is near, and without a trump card like Silver Shadow, my path ahead will undoubtedly be more difficult.
“Although I can't do anything, there's something that can,” Chi Jing said all of a sudden.
Zhou Yuan lifted his head abruptly, looking at Chi Jing with his eyes blazing, and then noticed something strange. “There’s something that can?”
Chi Jing cracked a smile. “You've seen it before too.”
Zhou Yuan was taken aback for a moment before asking, “You mean the divine grindstone of the Four Spirits Origin Tower?”
Chi Jing nodded with a smile. “Don't underestimate Elder Divine Grindstone. It is a sacred object. In the entire Tianyuan Region, in terms of mastery in spirit cultivation, besides our master, Elder Grindstone is ranked first.
“If you can get it to help, maybe your puppet can evolve perfectly.”
With a blazing look in his eyes, Zhou Yuan flung his sleeve and immediately put away the silver liquid in front of him. Without saying anything else to Chi Jing, he turned into a stream of light and rushed out of the training room, heading straight for the Four Spirits Origin Tower.
Immediately after entering the tower, he found a quiet place to release his Spirit, which he wrapped in Silver Shadow’s silver liquid. His Spirit soared into the sky, passing through the numerous obstacles, and came to a familiar chaotic void.
There, a gigantic divine grindstone was slowly rotating as if it had done so since ancient times.
Zhou Yuan immediately sent out a request for assistance.
The divine grindstone quickly responded and readily agreed. After all, it was a small matter, and Zhou Yuan was a disciple of Cang Yuan, so it would of course look after him. If not for this fact, Zhou Yuan would not have been summoned when he had initially entered into the Four Spirits Origin Tower.
“Thank you, elder!”
Zhou Yuan was overjoyed.
The next moment, a vast and powerful force swept out and enveloped the silver liquid.
While it was shrouded in that mighty force, Zhou Yuan could clearly see that the crystal dust inscribed with Genesis Runes was beginning to melt inside the silver liquid and fuse with it.
Zhou Yuan also noticed that that the fusion was extremely perfect. There were countless points of connection, all of which were incredibly harmonious.
This would undoubtedly make Silver Shadow even more perfect.
Zhou Yuan marveled at the sight. This control of Spirit power was remarkable. It was no wonder that Chi Jing said that her mastery of Spirit power was inferior to Elder Grindstone.
Bur the integration occurring inside the silver liquid was unexpectedly slow. It seemed that for Silver Shadow to complete its evolution, it would take a while even with the help of Elder Grindstone.
But Zhou Yuan wasn’t worried at all, because judging from the process’s smoothness, there wouldn’t be any accidents if he left Silver Shadow under Elder Grindstone’s care.
Zhou Yuan breathed a long sigh of relief and bowed respectfully to the grindstone before returning to his real body.
Sitting cross-legged on a towering mountain, Zhou Yuan calculated the time till the nine regions tournament. There was less than half a month left. Now that the problem of Silver Shadow was resolved, it was time to improve his Genesis Qi further.
His eyes flashed, and with the wave of his sleeve, a jade box emerged in front of him. The jade box opened up, revealing a sapphire-like fruit that emitted a strange aroma.
It was a Divine Dwelling Immeasurable Fruit.
Zhou Yuan originally planned to keep the fruit for his last Divine Dwelling, but during his training, he came to understand that he had underestimated the difficulty of connecting the last two Divine Dwellings.
He had already tried to polish the eighth Divine Dwelling with all his strength, but there still wasn’t much improvement.
It was much more difficult to connect through to the eighth Divine Dwelling than connecting all seven Divine Dwellings altogether.
This situation wasn’t unusual. It was the same for everyone who had opened up nine Divine Dwellings. After all, once the last two were connected, the improvement brought about was incomparable to any previous increase in strength. The higher the ranking of the Divine Dwellings, the harder it was to connect the last two. At the same time, the benefits would be much greater once successful.
According to Zhou Yuan's estimate, if he didn’t use the Immeasurable Fruit, it would most likely take another two months to connect through to the eighth Divine Dwelling, but he didn’t have time. The nine regions tournament was near, and there would be several powerful enemies there. Even if he had evolved Silver Shadow, it still wasn’t entirely safe.
Therefore, he had to at least connect the eighth Divine Dwelling and then wait for an opportunity to complete the last Divine Dwelling in the nine regions tournament. Only then would he finally step into the pinnacle of the Divine Dwelling stage!
At that time, if he obtained enough Alpha Spiritium, he could break through to the Heavenly Sun stage.
“Without any investment, how would there be any returns? It’s just a Divine Dwelling Immeasurable Fruit. I shouldn’t be so stingy and treat it as a precious treasure!
“If the old doesn't go, the new won’t come.”
With a resolute glint in his eyes, Zhou Yuan stretched out his hand, and the jewel-like Immeasurable Fruit landed in his palm. He immediately squeezed his hand and crushed it.
The immeasurable fruit shattered. Azure mist whizzed out and enveloped Zhou Yuan’s body in a cloud.
I must successfully connect through to the eighth Divine Dwelling!
For the upcoming nine regions tournament, Zhou Yuan had already made all sorts of preparation!Previous Chapter Next Chapter
