100 The Ruthless Cultivation Method
Spring had passed and summer had arrived. In such a scorching season, a sudden clap of thunder shocked all the living beings on the mountain. Snakes, insects, rats, ants, birds, and beasts were all trembling in fear.
Those with intelligence were even more terrified.
A purple-gold lightning snake slithered out of Mount Xiaohe and covered half of the mountain in the blink of an eye as if it had turned the place into a lightning waterfall.
It was the embryonic form of the magic domain that belonged to the Core Formation stage cultivator.
It was a phenomenon of heaven and earth evolving with spiritual roots as the foundation.
If one had a metal fire-attribute spiritual root and cultivated a killing technique, the phenomenon would be like a mountain of daggers and a sea of fire. However, if they focused on cultivating their inner energy and defense against enemies, the phenomenon of the embryonic form of the magic domain would be the scene of an undying volcano.
Within the embryonic form of the magic domain, the owner would be the only one who rules!
Among them, the embryonic form of the magic domain evolved from a single attribute spiritual root was the most powerful. Any cultivator who was caught in it would immediately have their great divine powers halved!
The strange phenomenon on Mount Xiaohe attracted many people’s attention.
Soon, someone knowledged exclaimed, “Core Formation stage! The sect leader has become a great Core Formation stage cultivator!”
Instantly, exclamations of surprise rose from all around.
“The three mountains stood up to the blue sky, and Mount Xiaohe is showing its power.”
Someone let out a light laugh.
The aura of a Core Formation stage cultivator burst out instantly and then disappeared.
“Congratulations to the sect leader for breaking through the Core Formation stage! From now on, your domain is flawless!” A clever disciple of the Tianling Sect quickly shouted, and the people around him also shouted.
“You all don’t have to be so polite. All of you may leave and cultivate properly!” Fang Jinyu waved his hand, and an elixir corresponding to their cultivation base appeared in front of the Tianling Sect’s disciples who had congratulated him.
Fang Jinyu had deliberately refined the elixirs before he ended his closed-door cultivation. Otherwise, he would have finished his closed-door cultivation long ago.
“Thank you for your kindness, sect leader!”
The group of disciples hurriedly shouted again, all of them extremely excited.
Soon, the news of Fang Jinyu forming his core spread throughout the entire Tianling Sect. Immediately, the leaders of the major families all fell silent.
Most of the leaders were in the late-stage Foundation Establishment and were potential candidates for the Tianling Sect’s sect leader.
They had worked hard for many years to increase their chances of forming their cores, or perhaps to increase the grade of their cores by one or two grades.
As these families had Core Formation stage cultivators, they knew very well how great the impact of different grades of cores of the Core Formation stage was!
Different grades of core formation would cause cultivators to face different bottlenecks.
After forming a first-grade core, the number of bottlenecks one would face after forming the core would be nine.
As long as one passed these nine barriers, one could naturally shatter their core and form their nascent soul.
Of course, it was the most ideal way to put it.
If the core reached grade two, then the number of bottlenecks would triple, which was 27.
With a grade three core, the number of bottlenecks one would encounter after forming the core was as high as 72.
As for the low-grade core…
It was already a number that made people despair.
It was also why it was said that those’s cores below grade 3 of the Core Formation stage couldn’t break through to rank 3 in the Core Formation stage if they didn’t have the right opportunity! Therefore, most great Core Formation stage cultivators focused on cultivation or thought of ways to improve the grade of their cores.
Apart from that, different grades of cores would result in different great divine powers and inner energy of the same level.
If a cultivator who ranked 1 in the Core Formation stage with a grade 1 core used the same technique as a cultivator who had a grade 9 core, the latter wouldn’t even have one-tenth of the former’s power.
There was no way to compare the density of the inner energy of the two!
“Our Sect Leader Fang is so amazing. I heard that he has been cultivating hard and doesn’t even have many valuable things on him. I didn’t expect that he could become a Core Formation stage cultivator before the age of 40!”
Some of the leaders of the great families sighed in admiration and couldn’t help but say it to the people around them.
Some leaders of the great families were not very convinced and said to their wives rather mockingly, “Huh, in my opinion, forming the core too early isn’t a good thing! I’m afraid that to hastily form the core, our sect leader has only formed a grade 8 core!”
His wife couldn’t help but ask, “Why isn’t it grade 9? Back then, my seventh uncle was in such a hurry to form his core that after he did so, his core was graded 9. He has been cultivating for more than a hundred years, but he still hasn’t broken through to rank 2 in the Core Formation stage.”
“There’s something you don’t know. Our sect leader is cultivating the storm raging technique. Although it’s not the top 100 best high-tier spells in the Nine Desolations, it’s still a pretty good spell. In his early years, he didn’t rely on Foundation Establishment Elixirs to break through the Foundation Establishment Stage. He can’t form a grade 9 core when he had such a great understanding of cultivation.”
Even though he was mocking Fang Jinyu, he didn’t make any conjectures that didn’t fit the information he already knew.
There were also some leaders of great families who had people prepare generous gifts after they frowned for a while. Afterward, they sent their direct descendants to send it to Mount Xiaohe.
Suddenly, Mount Xiaohe became lively.
However, no one could see “Sect Leader Fang” when they came to Mount Xiaohe, they only saw loads of thunder-attribute frogs.
Before they could even stand still, they heard the croaking of frogs…
Fortunately, there were a few Mount Goddess’ disciples who had been ordered to come to Mount Xiaohe to help receive them, so that the people from the aristocratic cultivation families wouldn’t be too awkward.
“Where do you think the sect leader went?”
“He’s probably in his closed-door cultivation again? Our sect leader’s only hobby is cultivation. It’s said that he specially went to learn alchemy skills to make it more convenient for himself.”
“The sect leader is truly an amazing person!”
Those who were sent out were naturally smooth and slick. Even if Fang Jinyu was absent, they didn’t complain at all. Instead, they were all praising euphemistically.
Meanwhile, Fang Jinyu was on Mount Guiwang.
The Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster chuckled and said, “I believe you’ve at least formed a grade 3 core while looking at your aura…”
Fang Jinyu didn’t elaborate and said, “I was just lucky.”
Since Fang Jinyu’s luck was too weak at the moment, so he wanted to avoid any trouble.
“It’s not luck to be able to form a core above grade 3. However, it’s a good thing that you’ve formed your core so early. I’ve observed the heavenly phenomena and found that there will be a great change in the world. I plan to find an opportunity to disappear for some time. When the time comes, take this order and bring Nangong Li to a secret realm to hide. Once the secret realm is closed, it will take a hundred years before it can open again.”
“Grandmaster…” Fang Jinyu was slightly taken aback as he looked at the black talisman that had suddenly appeared in his hand. He didn’t expect the Tianling Sect’s Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster to have concealed himself and not have encountered any danger!
“Do you remember what I’ve told you?”
Fang Jinyu hurriedly said, “I accept your order. I will send Senior Sister Nangong to the secret realm.”
“I don’t have a magic treasure that is suitable for you. Take this map and go to this place to look for it. I remember that there is a spirit tool that hasn’t been fully nurtured there. You can make it come into being earlier by following the method recorded on it.” The Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster gave the mission reward to Fang Jinyu in advance and waved his hand lightly.
In an instant, Fang Jinyu went from the peak of Mount Guiwang to the foot of the mountain.
Such great divine power was something that only a few Nascent Soul stage cultivators could do.
At this moment, the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster on Mount Guiwang suddenly looked forward with a dark gaze. There was nothing there, but the Tianling Sect’s Grandmaster was looking at it very seriously.
After a long while, he seemed to have figured something out and taken out an ancient scroll.
It was something he had obtained a hundred years ago.
What was recorded on it was the cultivation method of cutting off the threads of love with a sword of the ruthless cultivation method.
“There are similar flowers in this world, but it’s not the flower I saw at the beginning…” With a sigh, the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster said, “Perhaps I should have practiced the wisdom sword long ago!”
