Wu Yu focused on himself.
Previously, he had obtained some God's Way Pills from Prince Yan. Subsequently, he snatched a substantial number from others. This made him rather affluent among those that were at his cultivation level.
Prince Le was rather poor himself initially. However, as he was pushed under the limelight recently, several ministers and aristocrats had sent gifts to him to garner goodwill. Among which, God's Way Pills were common. He even shared some with Qu Haoyan and the rest. Having reaped such great gains this time, he probably felt like wealth didn't matter as much. What was more important would be the overall strength of the team.
The advancement of cultivation level was a tedious and gradual process. That was the true core of cultivation. However, the increment of Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy was simple. Wu Yu possessed immense refining capacity. As he refined God's Way Pill after God's Way Pill, the medicinal properties flushed through his body like a deluge and eventually gathered in his Violet Kingdom. Subsequently, they were devoured by the Violet Kingdom created by the Great Way of Immortality Art and forged into Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy.
Wu Yu's Violet Kingdom was way stronger than that of those at a similar cultivation level as him. Now that he had the support of his dao realm, his Violet Kingdom grew even broader and the extent to which he could control Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy increased substantially. To put it simply, this was a huge-scale metamorphosis.
After roughly 15 minutes, he reached the seventh tier of the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm.
At this point, Wu Yu was a little astonished to find himself in a steady state with room to refine more God's Way Pills even though he was still at the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm. Other Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm cultivators, like Qu Haoyan and the others, couldn't take that many God's Way Pills. Therefore, all of them had started with Great Dao Primordial Spirit Pills.
Breaking through a single cultivation level clearly wasn't the end. After giving it some thought, Wu Yu could clearly feel the great advancements in his dao realm over the past twenty-odd days. Breaking through two cultivation levels would be entirely reasonable.
Therefore, he continued refining more God's Way Pills.
He was feeling rather vexed currently. His Unshackled Doppelgangers had reached 10,000. As his main body improved, they had to as well. How was he going to come out with that many God's Way Pills to feed them? This was literally throwing a bucket of water into an inferno...
Obviously, this was a fortunate worry. Seeing himself getting stronger, Wu Yu naturally felt passionate and exhilarated.
After about an hour, Wu Yu was surprised to find himself reaching the eighth tier of the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm.
At this point, Wu Yu could feel that his Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy had strengthened extensively. Previously, his Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy had always been his weakness, while his physical strength was his strength. However, he felt that while the advantage he had in physical strength dwindled, his weakness in Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy and dao realm was improving.
Although the difference in Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy between an eighth tier Primordial Spirit Transformation cultivator and an eighth tier Dao Querying cultivator like Prince Yu was like heaven and earth, he had made some improvements. The difference before was too stark.
The key was that after reaching the eighth tier, Wu Yu miraculously found himself to be capable of more improvements.
He found this absolutely unbelievable initially.
"That's to be expected as well. Over the twenty-odd days, I was flushed with knowledge each day. The improvements made each day took me forth by leaps and bounds. Making three breakthroughs consecutively would still be considered reasonable. Others will likely be at this level. Xixi was at the 10th tier Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm initially. This time, she can definitely break through the limits and reach the Dao Querying Three Disasters Realm, or even higher." He was calm and continued refining God's Way Pills. He realized that his control over his Primordial Spirit was still relatively strong and that his Violet Kingdom was expanding gradually under his control. This time, he took roughly two hours to eventually reach the ninth tier of the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm. He succeeded and didn't face any major hiccups in the process. In fact, Wu Yu was a little intimidated by himself. This was because he felt like he could still control his Primordial Spirit and his Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy that had strengthened explosively with relative ease.
There was still room for him to push higher. At the beginning, he couldn't believe it. Could listening to the Ancient Emperor's dao musings once truly be that frightening, enough to enable him to reach the 10th tier of the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm from the sixth tier at once?
Wu Yu had never expected to make such huge improvements. This was because he truly felt like this was impossible. To make such improvements in cultivation level, he believed that even he would take at least 20 years of researching spirit designs. However, the Ancient Emperor had shortened it to 22 days.
This was a difference of over 300 times......
To put it simply, Wu Yu was stupefied.
He knew he had made colossal improvements. However, he was still shocked by himself when his consciousness traced back from his Violet Kingdom. Naturally, he was euphoric while feeling shocked. He knew that if he had truly reached the 10th tier of the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm and was just a step away from the Dao Querying Three Disasters Realm, his standing within the Ancient Soul Tower would rise to an incredible level!
Before this, he could already fight against a fourth tier Dao Querying cultivator.
This miracle left him agitated and in disbelief. At the thought of how strong he could be when he left this place, he felt like he was in a dream. Wu Yu had more doubts about the Yan Huang Ancient Emperor now. His dao musing had brought huge improvements for Wu Yu. With that in mind, what was he plotting?
Now wasn't the time to think about this. He suppressed his agitation and devoted himself entirely to cultivation. His Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy was still vast and powerful. An ordinary Primordial Spirit Transformation cultivator wouldn't even dare to use a God's Way Pill. But he was refining them in the hundreds and even thousands until his Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy reached the level of a 10th tier Primordial Spirit Transformation cultivator. At this point, he finally felt as though a bomb was embedded within his body. It no longer felt that easy to control further and the Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy seemed to have morphed from tamed deer into ferocious lions. They might break away from Wu Yu's control at any moment. This was a sign that he had reached his limit. For Wu Yu to perfectly control his Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy, it would take a period to consolidate.
Although he was at the 10th tier and was rather unstable at it, he had to admit that it was like a dream to complete four consecutive breakthroughs to reach where he was within 22 days.
"Since I've made four consecutive breakthroughs in cultivation level, wouldn't my battle strength...."
Wu Yu only knew that he had never been stronger. As for the exact extent, even he was uncertain.
"These are just improvements in the aspect of Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy. My physical body has not advanced in a long time. Therefore, my battle strength hasn't increased by four tiers. My relative advantage in physical strength has diminished, and as I face stronger Dao Querying cultivators, I definitely can't challenge someone eight tiers above me." Wu Yu made a rough conjecture. "Now, my Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy has increased extensively. Although the strength of my Invincible Vajra Body remains the same, I should be able to defeat a sixth tier Dao Querying cultivator. For example, I should be capable of defeating the Army General of the Yan Dragon Army, Qu Yin! In other words, I'm definitely at the level of an Army General. I'm confident enough to face, and even defeat, the wife of King You Ying, Bei Yuji, and the Floating Souls Titanic Beast Ling Han! An ordinary demon king might not be a match for me either!" This was his confidence in himself.
Although his battle strength had only increased by two to three tiers, this was a major enhancement. This was because as they approached immortalhood, the increment of each tier might take several dozen or even hundreds of years!
"If I push further, I should still be barely able to face a seventh tier Dao Querying cultivator, or an existence that has been through the second dao calamity. At the very least, I wouldn't lose my life. Escaping from King You Ying shouldn't be an issue. Furthermore, I wouldn't look as helpless in the face of Prince Yu!
"More importantly, my puppets and Heaven Devouring Avatar can also get stronger! Perhaps reach the level of my main body!
"If I could make a breakthrough with my Invincible Vajra Body or Somersault Cloud, I would be even more frightening...."
Wu Yu had never expected to make such terrifying improvements in 22 days. Although he was only a step away from reaching the Dao Querying Realm, he was content. This was because it was impossible for anyone else to make four breakthroughs at once. This was a miracle that had never happened in history.
He calmed himself and decided to check on the progress of the others. If they needed more time, he wanted to make the best use of his own time to challenge a few more puppets. After all, the Seven Stars Iron Winged Bug was a little weak currently.
He estimated that Prince Le and the rest probably wouldn't require its protection anymore.
Looking across, only the Full Moon of Nanshan and Ye Xixi weren't done. The rest were ready and Princess You Xue was just next to him. Through the Soul Manipulation Blood Design, Wu Yu instantly noticed that she had reached the Dao Querying Three Disasters Realm before the age of 50....
"I was at the eighth tier initially and successfully reached the Dao Querying Three Disasters Realm after benefiting greatly. What the Ancient Emperor preached happened to be what was puzzling me the most before...."
Princess You Xue was also in ecstasy.
So he wasn't the only one who had made mad improvements.
Since she was imposed with the Soul Manipulation Blood Design, it was as though she had a mysterious encounter. This time, it was also because of Wu Yu that she had obtained a mysterious encounter once again. After checking Princess You Xue's cultivation level, Wu Yu could only say that there was no prince or princess in the Dark North Kingdom that could compete with her further in the future.
Obviously, the three breakthroughs she had made included a breakthrough of a major cultivation level. The actual effect was greater than Wu Yu's.
Wu Yu's dao was different from others. He was also younger than You Xue and stronger than her by several tiers. Therefore, he was still content.
On the other end, miracles had happened to the others as well.
Prince Le lived up to his name as the biological son of the Ancient Emperor. He reached the second tier of the Dao Querying Three Disasters Realm directly. Which prince or princess could still compete with him? When they were at the age of Prince Le, they were at most at the sixth tier of the Primordial Spirit Realm.
Qu Haoyan, Qu Fengyu, and Baili Zhuihun had all benefited greatly, reaching the Dao Querying Three Disasters Realm. Overall, their improvements weren't any inferior to Wu Yu's.
Wu Yu was probably the only one that had failed to reach the Dao Querying Realm.... Obviously, he had the lowest cultivation level to begin with.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
