Volume 32, Chapter 414.1: Dong'er, I'm Coming

The diamond-shaped star anise crystal entity was completely revealed on the Star Anise Mysterious Ice Grass’ body, exuding a pure chilly intent.

In Huo Yuhao’s spiritual sea, the Skydream Iceworm exclaimed, “What an excellent guy! The purity and concentration of the ice element in that far exceeds the Ten Thousand Year Ice Pith that I absorbed years ago. This must be the essence of the Extreme Chill Icespring that he has refined over ten thousand years.”

The Ice Grass’ weak voice sounded, “Since I’m leaving with you, I don’t need this anymore. This is the Star Anise Ice Crystal that I’ve cultivated for over ten thousand years. Keep it. It’ll increase your cultivation speed if you carry it along with you. If it’s embedded into a weapon, it can confer the strength of Ultimate Ice to any metal. The essence of my ten thousand years of cultivation lies in it.”

After hearing his words, Huo Yuhao’s expression turned serious. He hadn’t expected the Ice Grass to offer his most valuable item to him so sincerely. At this point, he was no longer doubtful. As he received the Ice Crystal, he sensed the extreme chill on it. He said seriously, “Star Anise, thanks for your trust. I believe you won’t be disappointed. Let’s start.”

Huo Yuhao was by this point extremely familiar with the process of Spirit Transmission, having been completely occupied with it over the past few months.

His Eye of Destiny shone brightly on his forehead, and rose-gold sunray patterns slowly released halos out from it.

The hexagram beneath Huo Yuhao’s feet was also rose-gold. His martial soul immediately switched, and the original seven rings turned into five rings – one red and four orange-gold. All five soul rings represented immense strength and ultimate power.

Huo Yuhao raised his right hand, a ball of rose-gold light shining there. His low-pitched yet awe-inspiring voice could be heard as he recited the incantation of the equal contract.

A streak of rose-gold light shot out from his Eye of Destiny and landed on the Ice Grass’ body. It was guiding his spiritual origin and soul power.

The uppermost leaf on the Ice Grass was suddenly stained bluish-gold, but he started to wither.

The Extreme Chill Icespring surged gently, and waves of pure chilly intent were released. It was like the Icespring couldn’t bear to let the Ice Grass go.

The Snow Lady silently flew to the side of the spring and used her body to block these waves of chilling intent. The origin energy of Ultimate Ice that she absorbed was used to supplement Huo Yuhao through her connection with him.

Behind Huo Yuhao, his huge Eye of the Asura silently rose. It had nothing to do with his Spirit Eyes but came under the guidance of his Eye of Destiny.

His incantation was working more smoothly now, compared to the past. Streaks of elegant light started to shine from Huo Yuhao’s body and brushed across the Star Anise Mysterious Ice Grass.

As of now, Huo Yuhao already had two Spirits, the Skydream Iceworm, and Snow Empress. The Ice Empress was his second martial soul.

Initially, Huo Yuhao had drained almost all of his spiritual power when he fused with the Snow Empress. As for the Skydream Iceworm, changing into Huo Yuhao’s Spirit only required him to alter his form slightly, given that he was already Huo Yuhao’s soul ring and possessed great spiritual power. As a result, Huo Yuhao wasn’t drained too much when he fused with the Skydream Iceworm.

No matter what, Huo Yuhao already possessed two Spirits that had greater than hundred-thousand-year cultivations. If not for the fact that his spiritual power had reached the concrete-material realm, he wouldn’t have dared to fuse with a third-hundred-thousand year Spirit. However, he was filled with confidence right now.

His spiritual power surged out and fused with the Star Anise Mysterious Ice Grass’ spiritual origin. They guided each other and drew closer.

The Ice Grass was also astonished right now. Although he could sense how strong Huo Yuhao was earlier, he didn’t realize that Huo Yuhao’s spiritual power was actually so great. He had never seen spiritual power as pure as this; it completely surpassed all the plant-type soul beasts living near the Icefire Yin Yang Well.

The contract proceeded very smoothly. When Huo Yuhao’s spiritual power was drained by about forty percent, the Ice Grass’ body finally withered completely.

A small and delicate Star Anise Mysterious Ice Grass, completely icy-blue and seemingly formed from crystals, drifted in front of him. After this, this Ice Grass slowly stuck to his right leg before it silently disappeared.

All the strange phenomena flashed, then disappeared. It was also at this point that Huo Yuhao’s five soul rings started to tremble.

Following this, a blood-red soul ring appeared as his sixth soul ring.

A weird force started to move towards Huo Yuhao’s body from the Star Anise Mysterious Ice Grass. Huo Yuhao only felt his legs suddenly fill with strength as red halos rushed out from his right leg.

This was…

This was the strength of a soul bone!

A hundred-thousand-year soul beast was bound to produce a soul bone. This was true even for a plant-type soul beast. After becoming Huo Yuhao’s Spirit, the soul bone that the Ice Grass produced directly became the right leg soul bone that Huo Yuhao lacked.

Although he didn’t know what soul skills it contained, Huo Yuhao immediately sensed the extremely strong aura brought about by his right leg soul bone. Two soul skills! He was confident that this soul bone would give him two extra soul skills!

Just as all the plant-type soul beasts and Bei Bei thought the fusion had ended, Huo Yuhao’s body suddenly shone brightly with azure light. His clothes burst apart, and the image of the Ice Jade Empress Scorpion surfaced in the air. After this, Huo Yuhao’s form started to change.

His body turned translucent as if he were a jade sculpture. An indescribable force mixed with the extreme chill from his Ultimate Ice silenced the Extreme Chill Icespring.

He took a step out in the air, and Huo Yuhao strode directly above the Icespring. Vigorous origin energy of Ultimate Ice instantly surged out from his body.

Another red soul ring rose from Huo Yuhao’s feet and slowly took form. It was a red that represented a hundred thousand years!

The Star Anise Mysterious Ice Grass wasn’t the first hundred-thousand-year Spirit. More accurately speaking, the Snow Empress was the first. It was just that the Snow Empress’ cultivation was too great, and her body almost blew apart, as things weren’t going too well then. That was why she experienced a strange mutation.

The Snow Empress gave Huo Yuhao four unprecedented orange-gold soul rings. Every orange-gold soul ring only contained one soul skill, but they were already very helpful for Huo Yuhao. However, he didn’t completely fuse with a hundred-thousand-year soul beast. Without a soul bone and a soul ring that gave him two soul skills, Huo Yuhao’s soul power was only slightly boosted, though the purity of his Ultimate Ice had reached a peak. After all, it was a combination of the Snow and Ice Empresses! The combination of the Snow Empress and the Ice Empress’ strength even produced Huo Yuhao’s strongest soul skill (apart from his Three Ultimate Haodong Skills), the Pride of the Ice and Snow Empresses.

The Star Anise Mysterious Ice Grass chose Huo Yuhao without any hesitation due to the presence of Huo Yuhao’s pure Ultimate Ice. In terms of purity and tier, Huo Yuhao’s Ultimate Ice had already surpassed the Extreme Chill Icespring.

However, the Snow Empress’ Spirit couldn’t be considered a full hundred-thousand-year Spirit because it had mutated, and so this Star Anise Mysterious Ice Grass could be considered his first hundred-thousand-year Spirit.

The advantage that a Spirit had over a soul ring was magnified when it had a hundred-thousand-year cultivation. Given that Huo Yuhao’s soul power was sufficiently strong, it was equivalent to him adding two hundred-thousand-year soul rings!

Undoubtedly, his sixth soul ring provided him two extra soul skills. However, no ordinary soul master would add a hundred-thousand-year soul ring to his seventh spot, given that his seventh soul ring was bound to be his Martial Soul True Body. Despite this, Huo Yuhao still did it. The Star Anise Mysterious Ice Grass also became the seventh soul ring of his Ice Jade Empress Scorpion. This completed his hundred-thousand-year Martial Soul True Body, the Ice Empress’ True Body.

Furthermore, Huo Yuhao could subtly sense that this Martial Soul True Body would be completely different from that of his Spirit Eyes because the Ice Empress possessed her own intelligence. It seemed like the Ice Empress’ aura had increased exponentially after his seventh soul ring appeared.

Apart from all these, Huo Yuhao had also gained a right leg soul bone. Right now, he had six soul bones!

They included the Three-Eyed Golden Lion’s Skull of Destiny, the Ice Jade Empress Scorpion’s backbone, the Ice Jade Scorpion Left Arm Bone, the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear’s Right Palm Bone, the Instant Teleportation Left Leg Bone, and this newly added Star Anise Right Leg Bone.

Six soul bones! In the current world of soul masters, this was a shocking number. Even the elders of the Sea God’s Pavilion didn’t have this many soul bones.

Moreover, Huo Yuhao’s six soul bones were all top-tier soul bones, normal soul bones couldn’t compare to them. The Three-Eyed Golden Lion’s Skull of Destiny was even more special! It controlled the power of destiny, and greatly increased Huo Yuhao’s spiritual power. It also helped Huo Yuhao increase his spiritual power capacity. The Ice Jade Empress Scorpion’s backbone and the Star Anise Right Leg Bone were hundred-thousand-year soul bones that each came with two soul skills!

Huo Yuhao’s Ice Jade Scorpion Left Arm Bone carried the Ice Explosion Technique, while his Instant Teleportation from his Left Leg Bone was an ultimate technique that could help him preserve his life. As for his Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear’s Right Palm Bone, it was one of the strongest offensive soul bones in the world.

Right now, Huo Yuhao already had five out of the six main soul bones, missing only a right arm bone. He even had an external soul bone in the Darkgolden Terrroclaw’s Bear Right Palm Bone, which was very strong.

He had twin martial souls, and both martial souls had seven soul rings. After fusing with the Star Anise Mysterious Ice Grass, Huo Yuhao’s abilities had increased to a level that his current cultivation couldn’t compare to.

Lights flashed from the image of the Ice Jade Empress Scorpion on his body, making it seem very lifelike. The glow from it also became stronger, as if it could come to life at any time.

The aura of Ultimate Ice shot towards the sky. In the sky above the mountain valley that contained the Icefire Yin Yang Well, the poisonous miasma released by the Jade Phosphorous Flowers of the Nine Absolutes gave way, and the temperature in the entire valley dropped significantly.
