"Five times the amount of time. It's a shame that Nanshan and Xixi can't come here. Otherwise, this would also benefit them."
The Floating Dreams Pagoda was a mysterious encounter Wu Yu had obtained on top of his Great Sage, Heaven's Equal legacy.
The Heaven Devouring Avatar was one too.
The Full Moon of Nanshan also had something beyond his immortal's legacy, and that was the Demonic Eye of Illusions.
As for Ye Xixi, her All Amalgamating Cat would be one as well. It would be even so in the future as the difference of one tier would be extremely important.
They weren't far from the Immortal's Capital now, and the Full Moon of Nanshan wasn't in a rush to get back.
With Floating Dreams Pagoda, a few days of time would be roughly a month for Wu Yu.
Therefore, while recovering his body, he had not forgotten other aspects to improve on. It was especially so for his four mystiques.
His Unshackled Doppelganger could create 10,000 doppelgangers. This was extremely incredible. If he were to get more, Wu Yu wouldn't be able to afford them. This was the most money-burning mystique ever.
For the Eyes of Fire and Gold, Wu Yu had reached the Paradise's Fiery Demise, or the fifth tier.
Only the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth and the Somersault Cloud had remained at the second tier.
Of which, the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth was a little easier than the Somersault Cloud. Wu Yu often used it and was extremely adept with it. He also had more confidence in it and therefore would want to try to reach the third tier.
The first tier of the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth doubled his physical strength. His size would also double, or he could choose to become half his size.
The second tier of the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth gave him three times his initial physical strength. This was Wu Yu's current level. His height would reach four times or one quarter of his initial height.
In terms of physical strength, it was an increase of one time for each tier. At the very least, it would be so for the first three tiers.
As for height, it would be double compared to the previous tier.
Obviously, Wu Yu only knew about the first three tiers.
Now he could enlarge himself to close to three zhang, a giant that was the size of an inn.
When he shrank to the smallest, he would only be a foot tall and would leave no traces as he moved around.
With the additional time he had, Wu Yu devoted himself to the cultivation of the third tier of the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth. Ming Long knew the spiritual art for the third tier clearly. Therefore, Wu Yu wouldn't have to communicate with the Ruyi Jingu Bang.
With his numerous experiences in using the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth, reaching the third tier would just be a matter of time.
The Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth was the mystique he used most frequently. Even more so than the Unshackled Doppelganger, the Eyes of Fire and Gold, and the Somersault Cloud.
This was because he required immense physical strength in every battle. Three times the physical strength was an important aspect in ensuring he could challenge opponents eight tiers above himself. Without three times his physical strength, he would have a hard time just going against a third tier Dao Querying cultivator. Although this slowed him down greatly, Wu Yu's initial speed was fast to begin with. Together with the Swift Art, the difference in speed wouldn't affect much.
"If I can reach the third tier, my physical strength will be four times higher. My body will also be a little taller, close to six zhang. I will then be similar in size to many demons."
Physical strength wouldn't equate to offensive power, as Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy was essential too. Nonetheless, four times the physical strength would increase his attack by leaps and bounds. It would be especially so in close combat.
The Heaven Dao mystiques of the Great Sage, Heaven's Equal were truly exceptionally mysterious. If Wu Yu wasn't as familiar with the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth, it wouldn't be that successful when he tried to tackle the spiritual art of the third tier.
There's a saying that goes “practice makes perfect.” Through his countless executions, Wu Yu was also trying to grasp the key points of the third tier.
The third tier of the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth could be said to be one step of improvement. The core reasoning was the same. It was just that with the succeeding step, there were a few more changes.
Wu Yu had a solid foundation and therefore was trying to decipher the changes of the third tier.
This took up a substantial amount of time. However, Wu Yu wasn't lacking in time. With five times the amount of time in the Floating Dreams Pagoda, he wasn't in a hurry. Even if he had not succeeded when he arrived in the Immortal's Capital, he felt like he should have enough time to decipher the third tier before the 10,000 Kingdoms Pilgrimage.
At the same time, he could also start deciphering the third tier of the Somersault Cloud. The only shame was that Ming Long had not mastered the second tier fully. Wu Yu would likely have to communicate with Ruyi Jingu Bang to obtain the spiritual art of the third tier of the Somersault Cloud.
Nonetheless, he looked forward to the third tier and was filled with anticipation. Ming Long had said previously that among the four mystiques, the Somersault Cloud would be the hardest. However, it was also the absolute leading mystique that triumphed the other three.
Wu Yu had never thought that cultivating for the third tier of the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth would be so smooth. Within a month, and before he arrived at the Immortal's Capital, Wu Yu successfully tackled the changes in many details and difficulties. In the end, he successfully raised this mystique to a new tier.
Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth, third tier!
From now on, his physical strength could reach four times the base strength!
At the same time, his body could theoretically be eight times the height of an ordinary man. However, when he used that mystique, he was close to six zhang tall, or ten times the height.
Therefore, the increment wasn't exactly as expected and there was a range to it. Since Wu Yu had mastered it well, he would naturally be stronger and the strength he could release was close to five times.
The key was that if he stacked it with the Violent Art, it would be amplified further. He might reach 10 times the strength in an instantaneous explosion. Although this could only be done once, Wu Yu considered the combination of the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth and the Violent Art to be his killer move. In fact, without any dao techniques or Offensive Spirit Design, just using the Violent Art with the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth would flatten his opponent.
The results of his journey back had exceeded Wu Yu's expectations. His Heaven Devouring Avatar had grown stronger, he had obtained the Seven Stars Iron Winged Bug, and his Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth had reached the third tier. More importantly, he now had five times the amount of time in the Floating Dreams Pagoda.
Although only a short period had passed, the Full Moon of Nanshan had a whole new level of control over the Demonic Eye of Illusions.
The Full Moon of Nanshan's body strengthening immortality art, the Nine Cycles of the Imperial Immortal Body, was an extremely sacred body strengthening immortality art. Although it wasn't as domineering as Wu Yu's Invincible Vajra Body or as mysterious as Ye Xixi's Hell Incarnation Avatar, it triumphed in the aspect of brilliance. This was also the reason why he was getting better-looking in his human form. With the Nine Cycles of the Imperial Immortal Body, even though he was a pig, he would definitely be the number one good-looking man in his human form when he eventually reached the Sky Palaces.
The Full Moon of Nanshan was currently at the fourth tier of the Nine Cycles of the Imperial Immortal Body, and this was pretty incredible. Although the toughness wasn't like Wu Yu's Hexaworld Celestial King Buddha Body, his physical body had exceeded that of many experts like the Regent.
With the mystiques of Marshal Tian Peng together with the Nine Cycles of the Imperial Immortal Body and the Demonic Eye of Illusions, the Full Moon of Nanshan's future would only be second to Wu Yu's.
As for Ye Xixi, she was working extremely hard and she had the All Amalgamating Cat. Her cultivation level was higher than Wu Yu and the Full Moon of Nanshan’s to begin with. Currently, Wu Yu was at the sixth tier of the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm, the Full Moon of Nanshan was at the eighth tier, and Ye Xixi was at the 10th tier. Once all her Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy was converted to the Ten Wheels Bodhisattva Ghostly Immortal Mantra, Ye Xixi would only be stronger. Moreover, once she made a breakthrough, she could go for the Dao Querying Realm directly.
There was likely not a single Dao Querying existence at her age in the entire Jambu Realm.
Now all three of them were back in the Immortal's Capital, brimming with confidence.
They kept a low profile and returned in the Hidden Immortal after entering the Immortal's Capital. Wu Yu was looking down on the huge Immortal's Capital from the sky.
"There are more people now, the streets are more lively, and the shops have increased their goods stockpiles. There will likely be good business for the upcoming period. This shows that all of them know about the 10,000 Kingdoms Pilgrimage and we are the only ones that didn't know about it." The Full Moon of Nanshan was amazed.
Truth be told, he didn't have a sense of belonging in the Yan Huang Ancient Country.
Wu Yu could see and sense that a storm seemed to be cooking over the Immortal's Capital.
It might seem calm now, but the atmosphere was stifling. This pressure was even more evident in the Imperial City. This was because Wu Yu knew that in the previous 10,000 Kingdoms Pilgrimages, the Yan Huang Ancient Emperor would only appear to accept the offerings. After that, the royal family of Yan Huang and the descendants of the Ancient Emperor would have to endure the grievances of the entire Jambu Realm. Although no one would kill openly, they would be targeting the royal family in hopes of embarrassing them.
The princes and princesses and their Kingmakers were likely preparing to defend the honor and pride of Yan Huang. Therefore, few people were moving around in the Imperial City. Most of them were cultivating in seclusion.
Wu Yu put away the Hidden Immortal once they arrived in Prince Le's Residence. Now that they were back, they went to pay greetings to Prince Le.
Before the residence, Wu Yu sought an audience. Qu Fengyu was the one to open the door. When he entered, he saw Qu Haoyan and Baili Zhuihun as well. At the very top, Prince Le was seated and had a noble air about him. For that moment, Wu Yu felt a little thrown-off. He had not expected Prince Le to gain the demeanor of an emperor within the short period he was away.
"Ninth tier of the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm!"
Wu Yu was truly astounded. Prince Le was still below 50 years old and yet had reached this level. There was definitely not another person in the Jambu Realm who had reached this level at this age.
"Could it be just like the Nan Yun Region Lord said? He will start overtaking all the other princes and princesses until he becomes the new Yan Huang Emperor?"
This thought flashed across Wu Yu's mind.
Besides that, he had not expected Qu Haoyan, Qu Fengyu, and Baili Zhuihun to make such huge improvements. All of them had reached the the seventh tier of the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm.
Their improvements could be considered a miracle.
They probably thought they would be important aides to Prince Le in the future.
What Wu Yu didn't know was that the public had now thought that Wu Yu, the Full Moon of Nanshan, and Ye Xixi, together with Qu Haoyan, Qu Fengyu, and Baili Zhuihun, would be six important future generals for Prince Le. They were deemed as important aides that would open up paths and leave their names in the course of history. Obviously, Wu Yu was the most important of them all.
Prince Le had won over the attention of many with the improvements he had made.
When he saw that Wu Yu had returned, he was calm and composed. "I knew you would definitely be back to help me in my most critical moment, Wu Yu."Previous Chapter Next Chapter
