“Truth be told, that is not the most serious issue here. The biggest threat now is that True Immortal, the Demon Emperor from the Demon Plane,” Chen Feng said.
“Demon Emperor. Are you certain?” The Heavenly Premiers had been exploring outer space for a long time now. Thus, they were aware of some matters regarding the other worlds. They knew that in order to receive the title of Demon Emperor, one must be at the True Immortal stage. More, the cultivators from the Demon Plane were more bloodthirsty compared to cultivators from other worlds. Rather, their combat power was even greater than those from the Immortal Plane. Just considering the possibility of Heavenly Immortal Palace possessing a True Immortal was enough to give them a headache.
“Very certain. I am definitely not mistaken. Truth be told, although this Demon Emperor is very terrifying, it is not impossible to face him. At any rate, this is our world. Even if a True Immortal comes, he will not be able to display his full power. I’m just worried that some variables might pop up as time goes on. Besides, Heavenly Immortal Palace has obtained the support of the Immortal Plane. This is the biggest hidden danger. Now that the Immortal Plane has intervened, barring any accidents, Heavenly Immortal Palace will definitely be able to unify the entire Eternal World,” Chen Feng said.
“What should we do? Island Lord Chen, it seems to me like Heavenly Premier Ninelink is afraid of your identity. If so…” Heavenly Premier Eternal tried asking.
“It’s useless. For now, I am still not able to make contact with my backer. I am not sure if I can handle the consequences of doing so. We need to think of some other way.”
“What other ways are there? Contact the other Ascendant Immortals? It won’t be easy. The way I see it, if Heavenly Immortal Palace truly mobilizes its True Immortal, even uniting with the other Ascendant Immortals will be pointless.”
In the beginning, the three Heavenly Premiers had only believed part of Chen Feng’s words. However, since witnessing Chen Feng’s display of strength, they had become convinced.
“It’s not as though there is no way, but there is quite a price to pay. It will depend on whether or not you are willing to pay it.” Suddenly, Bi Qing’s voice made its way towards them. At the same time, space cracked open and Bi Qing walked out, his cyan-coloured clothes fluttering like a celestial being.
Upon Bi Qing’s appearance, the aura emanating from his body flashed by, causing the four Ascendant Immortals there to back away, a look of shock on their faces. Chen Feng was the only one who did not back away, unfazed by it.
“The mid-level Ascendant Immortal stage!” The four Heavenly Premiers gulped down their saliva.
“Congratulations!” Chen Feng said smilingly.
“It’s nothing to congratulate. I am just regaining some of my powers back,” Bi Qing said.
Naturally, Chen Feng understood what Bi Qing meant. Before reincarnating, Bi Qing was a Heavenly Immortal. After recovering his memories, his level would rise as well. With enough energy, he would be able to return to his past level. The distance between the mid-level Ascendant Immortal stage and the Heavenly Immortal stage was still very big.
“Friend Bi Qing, what did you mean by those words earlier?” Heavenly Premier Eternal asked.
“I have a suggestion. It should allow the four of you to reach the mid-level Ascendant Immortal stage in the shortest time possible. Then, you will be in a better position to deal with Heavenly Immortal Palace.”
“I understand what you mean. I have no problems with that. However, I cannot take too much of a loss here. No matter what, I need to get something here,” Chen Feng said smilingly.
“That’s easy. I only have some assets here, but I will give you all of it.” Bi Qing casually tossed a spatial pouch to Chen Feng.
Giving it a casual inspection, Chen Feng laughed. “One hundred million Immortal crystals. Senior, you sure are generous.”
“No. In truth, I am still the one getting the better deal here.” Bi Qing shook his head, a serious look on his face.
Seeing the two of them talking about something cryptic, the Heavenly Premiers grew puzzled. Only Heavenly Premier Absolute had a slight look of understanding on his face.
“I will provide you all with a place to cultivate. Whether or not you can break through will depend on your efforts,” Chen Feng said smilingly.
“But even if we do, we won’t be able to resist the pulling power of the Immortal Plane. What should we do then?”
“Don’t worry, I have a method to deal with that. Just look at Senior Bi Qing. The pulling power doesn’t work on him.” Despite saying that, Chen Feng also knew that Bi Qing would not be pulled up by the Immortal Plane, no matter how high his cultivation level was. Rather, it would be the Celestial Clearblue Plane. However, Bi Qing was once a Heavenly Immortal in the Celestial Clearblue Plane. It was only natural for him to have some methods to stop the pulling power.
“If we are going to do this, we should find more people. As it so happens, my East Dragon Island is developing rapidly. We’re running out of spirit stones,” Chen Feng said with a smile.
“You sure are a shrewd one. Whatever! I also have one hundred million Immortal crystals here. Consider it as expense fees, then.” Heavenly Premier Absolute laughed, bringing out a spatial pouch.
“Sigh! You fellows have no idea just how great this opportunity is. Even ten billion Immortal crystals would not have been able to get you this opportunity, let alone a hundred million Immortal crystals. Still, since he has agreed to it, I won’t say too much about it. In short, neither side will be losing out here.” Bi Qing, who was standing beside them, shook his head.
“I’ll contact Patriarch Heavenly Sword. He should be in cultivation retreat right now.”
“There are also Hegemon Sword and the rest. Island Lord Chen, you won’t object, right?”
“No. You can call up Hegemon Sword, Heavenswind, Aquafire and the other seniors over. If you know of others that are trustworthy, you can call them up as well. Unless I am mistaken, Eternal World will soon turn upside down. Since Heavenly Immortal Palace is gathering its strength, we need to increase our strength as well. Rather, it has to be a great increase. I believe several mid-level Ascendant Immortals should be able to do a lot,” Chen Feng said smilingly.
Three days later, in East Dragon Island…
Chen Feng brought out the Longevity Tower and a spatial passageway opened up. Next, Bi Qing and the others walked in.
They were planning on using the Longevity Tower’s power to improve their cultivation levels. Naturally, Chen Feng had no way to know whether or not they could succeed.
Bi Qing, Heavenly Premier Absolute, Heavenly Premier Four Cardinals, Heavenly Premier Eternal, Heavenly Premier Heavensight, Patriarch Heavenly Sword, Patriarch Hegemon Sword, Patriarch Heavenswind, Heavenly Premier Aquafire. In addition to these nine, there were three other Ascendant Immortals.
The three Ascendant Immortals were Patriarch Martial Sky, Heavenly Premier Boltfiend and Heavenly Premier Tristar. All three were loose cultivators who had been cultivating for hundreds of thousands of years. They did not have any sect of their own in Eternal World. Two of them had in fact been spending all this time exploring outer space. They had only returned after receiving Patriarch Heavenly Sword’s message.
And so, a total of 12 Ascendant Immortals sat down cross-legged inside the Longevity Tower. With the exception of Bi Qing, the other 11 were all attempting to advance to the mid-level Ascendant Immortal stage. As for Bi Qing, he worked on stabilizing his cultivation level. Only then could he aim for a higher level.
In Chen Feng’s opinion, if Bi Qing could advance further to the high-level Ascendant Immortal stage, he would surely become the strongest person in Eternal World. He could even make a name for himself in the Immortal Plane. Even facing the Demon Emperor wouldn’t be an issue. Of course, Chen Feng was aware that the possibility of that happening was too low, unless they obtain the laws formed by a cultivator at the True Immortal stage or higher.
The 12 cultivators sat down cross-legged. All of them were feeling eager and somewhat excited. After finding out that this magic treasure was something above the Immortal tier, they no longer doubted Chen Feng’s words. Rather, they had become fervent believers.
Weng! Weng! Weng! Weng! Weng!
The Longevity Tower began shaking as one pillar of light after another descended to cover all 12 cultivators. Instantly, looks of shock, excitement and delight appeared on their faces.
“These are the dao of the Ascendant Immortal stage and power of laws. There are even some concept powers of the True Immortal stage mixed in. Naturally, energy is essential here. How much of it you can comprehend will depend on your own abilities. As for how to resist the pulling power of the Immortal Plane after you break through, there is no need to worry. Not even the universe’s laws of spacetime can interfere with the interior of the Longevity Tower. However, there is one thing that you need to know. After reaching the mid-level Ascendant Immortal stage, if you go all out while fighting, it will be very easy for you to end up ascending by accident.” Chen Feng’s voice echoed inside the Longevity Tower.
No one answered him. All of them had entered a state of cultivation.
As for Chen Feng, he leapt up to the sky with one kick. Hovering up in the sky above East Dragon Island, he pressed out with both hands, causing space to shake and lines to move about unimpeded. Due to his actions, a magic array appeared in the sky.
This magic array that Chen Feng had created was the opposite of the Spirit Gathering Array. It was the Spirit Distribution Array. A high number of spirit stones entered the Spirit Distribution Array. Next, a booming sound rang out as all the spirit stones transformed into a sea of spiritual liquid floating up in the sky. Finally, they rained down.
On this day, with East Dragon Island as the epicentre, an area with a radius of tens of thousands of li was greeted with a rain of spiritual liquid. The ocean yao guards of East Dragon Island were not the only ones to scream out, even the water yaos and monsters from deep inside the ocean emerged to the surface.
Additionally, the size of the affected area was still growing. Chen Feng clenched his teeth and the size of the Spirit Distribution Array grew. It was as though a high number of cracks had appeared up in the sky. It kept expanding, growing to a radius of half a million kilometres before stopping.
This was already Chen Feng’s limit. Not to mention, he was also borrowing the power of Immortal artifacts for this. Chen Feng alone would have been incapable of mobilizing such a large Spirit Distribution Array.
All the cultivators in East Dragon Island shouted joyfully. The results of Chen Feng’s actions caused the concentration of the spiritual energy in East Dragon Island and the surrounding ocean region to grow a hundred times stronger. Additionally, this would continue for quite some time. At any rate, a high amount of the spiritual liquid had fused into the ocean waters.
Furthermore, this was no ordinary spiritual liquid. Rather, they were the result of melting down Immortal crystals. And so, East Dragon Island became like an immortal paradise. Only the Immortal Plane could enjoy something like this.
Only after using up 100 million Immortal crystals did Chen Feng stop.
This was just the beginning. Next up, Chen Feng would use up another 100 million Immortal crystals for this every six months. This would last for a total of five years, using up a total of one billion Immortal crystals.
Chen Feng was able to afford this because of the assistance he gave to the 11 Ascendant Immortals, allowing him to collect 2 billion Immortal crystals in total. Those were not some average spirit stones. Rather, they were Immortal crystals. Only after reaching the Human Immortal stage would one be able to link up to the Immortal Plane and extract immortal energy. Even then, the amount of immortal energy that a Human Immortal could absorb was very limited. As for creating Immortal crystals using immortal energy, even most Ascendant Immortals were incapable of doing that. Thus, one can only imagine just how valuable Immortal crystals were in Eternal World.
During the five years, East Dragon Island’s strength soared once again. Every day, countless people would do everything they can to enter East Dragon Island’s territory. Even more were howling out their desire to join East Dragon Island.
And those were just human cultivators. When it came to the water yaos from the far-ocean region, there were even more. There was practically an unending stream of them coming from tens of millions of li away. All of them wanted to make their way into East Dragon Island’s territory.
After spending so much effort and Immortal crystals, like bamboo sprouts growing rapidly after the rain, the cultivation levels of the cultivators of East Dragon Island began advancing.
The rate at which their cultivation levels advanced scared even Chen Feng.
Looks like I will need to utilize some secret techniques to open up a portal to the Immortal Plane. That would be even more enjoyable, but punching out such a big hole will definitely cause problems.
