Ten days later.
A remote mountain somewhere in the Four Spirits Origin Tower.
Mighty Genesis Qi erupted like a volcano and eventually turned to layers of Genesis Qi clouds floating up high. There seemed to be an azure serpent-dragon shuttling through the cloud layers and producing deafening roars.
Terrifying pressure of Genesis Qi frantically spread out.
In the distance, members of the four pavilions who were training turned in puzzlement to look in the direction it came from. They couldn’t help but cry out when they felt a familiar fluctuation of Genesis Qi. “Is the chief pavilion master training right now?”
“Such powerful Genesis Qi!”
“It’s much stronger than before!”
They were amazed because even from such a distance, they could distinctly feel a tremendous pressure, something Zhou Yuan couldn’t previously cause.
“It seems that the chief pavilion master has made great progress during this closed-door training!” they exclaimed, their eyes filled with awe. The nine regions tournament was near, and Zhou Yuan’s improvement was undoubtedly good news for the Tianyuan Region. After all, there were no doubt some super fierce people in the nine domains tournament.
Although Zhou Yuan had defeated Chen Xuandong, it was well known that there was still a huge gap between Chen Xuandong and the super heaven prides of the other eight regions.
Under those distant marveling stares, the Genesis Qi clouds above the towering mountain peak dissipated.
They revealed the figure of Zhou Yuan sitting cross-legged.
His eyes opened slowly, and he spat out a mouthful of turbid qi.
The turbid qi shot out thousands of feet like an arrow, creating a thunderous sound.
Zhou Yuan immediately inspected the inside of his Divine Dwellings. His eyes widened with shock, and his breathing became labored.
He found that within the Divine Dwellings, there were 38 million flashing Genesis Qi stars!
Boundless and mighty Genesis Qi was filling the Divine Dwellings, making the inside appear incredibly bright.
In other words, in this breakthrough, his foundation had increased by 15 million stars?!
That was too terrifying.
It should be said that the foundation brought about by seven Divine Dwellings only had 23 million stars, but now, by adding the eighth Divine Dwelling, his foundation had increased its stars by more than half!
“No wonder the last two Divine Dwellings are so hard to polish. Since it gives such a remarkable result, regardless of its difficulty, it is still worth it!” Zhou Yuan finally calmed his emotions after a good while. Given his present foundation, if he were to face off against Chen Xuandong again, he was confident of defeating him without the help of the four spirit runes.”
Although Zhou Yuan was uncertain what sort of Genesis Qi foundation the heaven prides ranked in the top eight possessed, the eighth Divine Dwelling had given him a lot of confidence. Adding to this, he still had the ninth Divine Dwelling!
Once the ninth Divine Dwelling opened up, Zhou Yuan was confident that he wouldn’t be weaker than anyone else.
Zhou Yuan stood up and ran his eyes across the distance. He could sense that his breakthrough had attracted a lot of attention. He pondered for a moment, then flashed away, leaving the mountain.
Ten minutes later, he came to a stop, and after checking the surroundings, his Spirit rushed out and headed up high.
The Spirit shuttled through the terrifying clouds and came to the chaotic void.
His line of sight was immediately drawn to the silver liquid suspended in the air. The silver liquid slowly flowed in the void, as though it mysteriously possessed some kind of life force.
Compared to the past, a bright light was flashing inside the silver liquid, making it appear more eye-catching.
A kind of spiritual nature seemed to have been awakened in the silver liquid.
Zhou Yuan’s eyes lit up with surprise. He beckoned, and the silver liquid immediately flowed over, swiftly gathering into a silver ball as smooth as a mirror in the palm of his hand.
Zhou Yuan carefully examined the silver ball and faintly saw the countless ancient Genesis Runes contained inside. The Genesis Runes had joined to form an exquisitely perfect connection. It was clear that the fusion compensated for Silver Shadow’s previous incompleteness.
Zhou Yuan suddenly cried out because he discovered that there seemed to be some sort of mysterious pattern on the surface of the silver ball. It exuded waves of energy that didn’t match the silver ball’s, and it was clearly not a product of Silver Shadow.
He pondered seriously, and his Spirit returned to his body with the silver ball in his hand. He clenched his hand tight and whispered, “Silver Shadow.”
The silver ball directly transformed into liquid form, rapidly spreading out from Zhou Yuan’s palm. In the blink of an eye, it formed a near-perfect silver armor that covered every part of his body. From a distance, he resembled a silver god of war and exuded a cold, oppressive presence.
Above the mountain summit, the silver-armored figure stood tall in the air, radiating an icy-cold, silvery light. Covered in silver armor, Zhou Yuan felt the majestic Genesis Qi between heaven and earth being swallowed, transformed, and provided to him in an unending steady stream.
Zhou Yuan clenched his hand, gathering an indescribable power.
The power of Silver Shadow was finally back!
The evolution was successful!
Zhou Yuan was ecstatic. Immediately, he found that the mysterious patterns on the silver armor faintly resembled a mottled divine grindstone.
The patterns exuded ripples of energy invisible to the naked eyes and seemed to be forming an invisible force field that shrouded his entire body.
“What is this?” Zhou Yuan sounded surprised.
The force field was clearly not a power that Silver Shadow possessed, which suggested it was Elder Grindstone’s doing while it was helping Silver Shadow evolve.
While he was in deep thoughts, the void rippled. Elder Grindstone was sending out a thought.
Zhou Yuan listened carefully, and after a moment, his eyes flashed. “Divine grindstone force field? It can prevent the Spirit from being corroded?”
Zhou Yuan scratched his head in puzzlement. It was a little unusual since it wasn’t a defense against Genesis Qi being corroded but Spirit. Regardless, it was an unexpected joy. It was indeed the right decision to ask Elder Grindstone for help.
“Thank you, Elder Grindstone.” Zhou Yuan bowed respectfully.
The void was silent, and there was no other movement.
Zhou Yuan didn’t mind. He flicked his sleeve and put away Silver Shadow before soaring into the air and heading for the exit of the Four Spirits Origin Tower.
Now that everything was ready, he only needed to wait for the nine regions tournament.
Zhou Yuan had been waiting for this day for too long.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
