They had wanted to go to Ancient Demon Realm to take a look. But Wu Yu's words convinced them otherwise.
"We're already a distance away from the Nanyin Demon Continent. I have to go blood bond with my Demonic Eye of Illusions. There will be chances in the future for the Ancient Demon Realm. It's too twisted for me now." The Full Moon of Nanshan scooted off.
He had to focus on the Hidden Immortal before today, but now he could turn his attention to the Demonic Eye of Illusions, since they were out of danger.
He could simply reserve some attention to keep the Hidden Immortal moving in concealment.
"I'm going to cultivate my immortality arts as well. Big Brother Yu, I've been improving lots recently, let me tell you. I can basically convert all my Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy into the Ten Wheels Bodhisattva Ghostly Immortal Mantra now. When I finally reach enlightenment on the Dao Querying Three Disasters Realm, I can use the ghostly immortal mantra's dao querying immortality arts.
"Moreover, my Hell Incarnation Avatar has also improved. I'm about to reach the next tier. I can feel my physical strength growing - it's already surpassed that of many Dao Querying Realm martial cultivators."
She had come to her legacy late, but Ye Xixi was a talented one, and also a ghostly cultivator.
In addition to the phantom ordeal in the Heavenly Demon Imperial Residence, she was also tied to the Curtain Lifting General and mentored. She would definitely improve.
The Full Moon of Nanshan went without saying. Whether he could master the Demonic Eye of Illusions remained to be seen. It was clearly better than Wu Yu's Floating Dreams Pagoda.
If he could just harness a small portion of the Demonic Eye of Illusions' power, it might already be more formidable than the Floating Dreams Pagoda.
When Wu Yu looked at the Full Moon of Nanshan's silver eye, he could feel a pressure from it, as though many things might not be real when he was before the eye.
They used the returning time for their individual cultivation, and Wu Yu had his own tasks. He had not been able to quietly cultivate in a while now.
In the Heavenly Demon Imperial Residence, the first test had seen his Primordial Spirit rocket in growth. He could already have surged to the sixth tier of the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm.
But in these chaotic times, he had been unable to break through.
The Ancient Demon Realm had expanded his horizons. Although he did not dare to go in now, one day, he would. That world fascinated him. And at the same time, Wu Yu felt that his cultivation speed might be faser there, because the spiritual qi there was amazingly rich. If he could bring Wu You there, her improvements would rocket, and her chances of reaching the Violet Kingdom of the Inner Sea Realm would be higher.
He was currently in the cabin, preparing to charge to the sixth tier of the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm.
He had the enlightenment and his Primordial Spirit was strong enough. No Primordial Spirit martial cultivator ever had a Primordial Spirit as robust as Wu Yu's.
His Heaven Devouring Avatar was also growing stronger constantly.
Wu Yu still had many God's Way Pills with him. These God's Way Pills were very effective in building his Primordial Spirit's tier, as well as his Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy.
Although he was just a fifth tier Primordial Spirit Transformation cultivator, his Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy had been fashioned by the Great Way of Immortality Art, so its true strength was at the peak of the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm, roughly at the 10th tier.
Combined with his physical strength, four great mystiques, the 72 Transformations, and two elite advanced dao treasures, he could deal with those at the third tier of the Dao Querying Three Disasters Realm.
His Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy continued to grow.
Wu Yu had about 4,000 God's Way Pills left. The drain on his real body and clones this time had been huge, and when he and his clones all reached the sixth tier, there were less than 1,000 left.
All of this had been won from Prince Yan.
Wu Yu did not have much quiet time to himself.
"When I'm back in the Immortal's Capital, I will again settle down and learn a few more dao techniques so the Unshackled Doppelgangers' advantage is brought to bear fully. And prepare some advanced dao treasures."
He thought of the thousands of advanced dao treasures in the Heavenly Demon Imperial Residence.
"And the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth and Somersault Cloud can both be pushed to the next tier. The Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth can reach the fourth tier, and the Somersault Cloud can reach the third tier as well. At that time, my strength will grow dramatically."
Just with his physical body and mystiques, it was difficult for Wu Yu to transcend so many levels and fight fourth tier Dao Querying martial cultivators or demons for now.
If he wanted to remain able to transcend so many tiers, he had to keep up the improvements in his mystiques and Invincible Vajra Body. It was difficult to push his Invincible Vajra Body further. His Hexaworld Celestial King Buddha Body was already considered elite in the entire Jambu Realm, and even the Phoenix Supreme could not match him there.
Therefore, if he wanted to continue punching above his level, he had to develop his four mystiques. For example, the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth could increase Wu Yu's physical strength and make his body stronger.
Thanks to these God's Way Pills, he had successfully reached the sixth tier of the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm.
When his Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy increased, it surpassed that of a 10th tier Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm cultivator, but in terms of Violet Kingdom Primordial Energy alone, he had not reached the Dao Querying level yet, and was still below than the Full Moon of Nanshan or Ye Xixi.
If not for the two of them being weaker in mystiques and physical strength, they would already be ahead of Wu Yu.
The Full Moon of Nanshan was breaking through with great speed, and Ye Xixi had taken to her legacy quickly as well. Besides, Ye Xixi had another way to increase her cultivation level - the All Amalgamating Cat.
Wu Yu could feel the pressure of them catching up, and so he set his heart on more cultivation.
After cementing his cultivation, he began to train the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth and Somersault Cloud, focusing on the Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth.
The Hidden Immortal did not return with speed, because the Full Moon of Nanshan was focusing on the Demonic Eye of Illusions. Wu Yu could feel that the Full Moon of Nanshan was evolving rapidly as he blood bonded with the Demonic Eye of Illusions.
Wu Yu was very envious. "Seems like Nanshan was the great winner. But he did earn it all himself."
In the Heavenly Demon Imperial Residence, the Full Moon of Nanshan had received no help.
"Don't be modest. You just don't see the merits of the Door to the Ancient Demon Realm yet. It was hailed the most important thing by the Golden Eye Ancient Demon. When you bring out its potential, you will know that the Demonic Eye of Illusions can't hold a candle to it," Ming Long said.
Wu Yu's mind was still on the Demonic Eye of Illusions. "Heaven willing." Although the Hidden Immortal did not move very quickly, it could still reach South Emperor City within a few days. The Hidden Immortal had been traversing the sea region without many encounters. Its concealment functions were still very strong.
However, one day, when Wu Yu was focusing on raising his Lawful Embodiment of Heaven and Earth's level, he sensed that the Hidden Immortal had been caught in a Heaven and Earth Spirit Design. The Hidden Immortal was immediately revealed after stumbling on it, and Wu Yu knew that the Heaven and Earth Spirit Design's creator must have sensed the presence of the Hidden Immortal.
He and Ye Xixi were up on the deck in a flash. They were still at the seabed at this point.
"Who?" Wu Yu scanned with his Eyes of Fire and Gold. He saw a vermilion sphere of frost caging the Hidden Immortal. This huge, bloody snowball had stopped the Hidden Immortal!
The bloody snowball was like a prison. Within it, ruby-colored icicles bristled menacingly. Icy spikes would tear apart any martial cultivator or demon that got close. Although these were made out of ice, they had been fashioned by the Heaven and Earth Spirit Design, and might even be sharper and more durable than an advanced dao treasure.
Wu Yu immediately saw that the Hidden Immortal alone could not bash its way clear. Although it was hard to tell how strong the bloody snowball was without testing it out personally, he reckoned that even smashing it with the Infernal Sky Pillar would take a long time.
"Were we unlucky to stumble into this trap, or is someone specifically out to get us?" If it were the former, Wu Yu felt like there might be room to negotiate. If it were the latter, they might be in hot soup.
He could bring Ye Xixi out, but the Full Moon of Nanshan was still here. Concealment was not a method to leave. Of course, if the opponent could not detect him, they might think that he had escaped.
Therefore, while Wu Yu was frowning, he was not panicking. He knew that the one behind this would definitely appear.
As expected, he heard someone speak after they were captured. "I have waited long for you. The Hidden Immortal is hard to find. In order to deal with you all, we've even used the Icy Bloody Hell Formation."
This was a wizened voice, evidently belonging to an elder. This was no good news. Ordinarily, elders who lived here had been cultivating for many centuries. Although they could not reach immortalhood, their power was at their lifetime peak.
Besides, from the words he had used, he clearly knew of the Hidden Immortal, and had expressly set this trap for them.
The Full Moon of Nanshan had also been careless. In order to reach Yan Huang as quickly as possible, he did not take any special detours, but had made a direct beeline course from the Nanyin Demon Continent to South Emperor City. It was all too easy to erect an ambush along this route. And the opponent knew about the Hidden Immortal.
Wu Yu had thought that this threat was a sea region demon or a Nanyin Demon Continent demon, but it was actually a martial cultivator.
Three martial cultivators appeared before them. Their trap was clearly targeted specifically at them.
Wu Yu started racking his brains immediately. Who amongst the martial cultivators would know that he was returning, would pass by this position, and would know of the Hidden Immortal?
The three before him were an elder, the leader, and a middle-aged man, and woman. All three wore black and were poised to kill. Most striking were their masks, which veiled their features.
Their masks were actually advanced dao treasures. Therefore, Wu Yu could not see their true faces, even with the Eyes of Fire and Gold.
This indicated that they were professional assassins!Previous Chapter Next Chapter
