101 The Simple Life of a Great Cultivator
To Fang Jinyu, becoming a Core Formation stage cultivator was undoubtedly a big deal.
It meant that Fang Jinyu had completely broken the shackles of being cannon fodder!
Although Fang Jinyu’s luck had fallen back to the level of cannon fodder, the situation was no longer the same. After all, in the Nine Desolations, Core Formation stage cultivators were considered great cultivators.
However, Fang Jinyu neither set up a banquet for his achievement nor invited many guests.
Firstly, it was because he didn’t have a family. Although the Fang family in the mortal world had some relatives, they had nothing to do with the cultivation world and might not even know each other.
Since Fang Jinyu started cultivating, he only had two to three people close to him.
The second point was that Fang Jinyu’s breakthrough was only a small matter for the entire Tianling Sect.
It wasn’t considered insignificant, but it wasn’t worth paying much attention to.
It was because the Tianling Sect didn’t need a Core Formation stage cultivator as a deterrent!
As such, for those Core Formation stage cultivators in the past, after they broke through, their families would hold banquets and invite many cultivators.
Thus, Fang Jinyu kept everything simple.
Just like Nangong Li.
After Fang Jinyu’s fellow disciples in the Core Formation stage sent him a congratulatory gift, he gave them each a present one by one. Since he had to pay a personal visit, he spent seven to eight days before he managed to visit all the Core Formation stage cultivators in the sect.
There were too many Core Formation stage cultivators in the Tianling Sect.
They only had one Grandmaster in charge and fewer Nascent Soul stage cultivators than the other four immortal sects, but they still had half as many Core Formation stage cultivators as the other four immortal sects!
Things became easier for Fang Jinyu because some Core Formation stage cultivators were in their closed-door cultivation. Hence, they specially asked their disciples or partners to tell Fang Jinyu that he didn’t need to give them a gift. Otherwise, he would have to visit other Core Formation stage cultivators for another three to five days.
Xin Qianqian said, “Senior brother, why do I feel like you’ve become more handsome?”
A certain girl also said, “Senior brother, I think so too!”
When Xin Qianqian heard Qing Fu’s words, she couldn’t help but glance at the little girl beside her with a strange expression. She asked, “Why are you calling him your senior brother?” Xin Qianqian felt that, if she wasn’t mistaken, her “Senior Brother Fang” seemed to be the little girl’s elder.
Qing Fu blinked her eyes and then revealed a look of realization. She asked, “Then, what about Godfather?”
Fang Jinyu was speechless.
Fang Jinyu didn’t dare let the seemingly young but three to four thousand years old senior address him as her “godfather.” Thus, he quickly took Xin Qianqian to the side and handed her a Wind Spirit Pearl.
“Senior brother, why are you giving me this Wind Spirit Pearl?”
Fang Jinyu didn’t say anything, but raised his hand and pointed.
The sigil of the Wind Spirit Pearl immediately appeared.
Instantly, the Wind Spirit Pearl which was only emitting a faint, clear light, exploded with an incomparably powerful wind force.
A burly, transparent figure rushed out of the Wind Spirit Pearl.
It was the myriad transformation technique.
Fang Jinyu had paid the price of his luck, which was no weaker than Su Yier’s, to completely transform himself into a lightning-attribute Tianling spiritual root. However, at the same time, he was unable to use any of the wind-attribute magical powers and spells that he had cultivated in the past.
Unless Fang Jinyu becomes a Nascent Soul stage cultivator and can use the spiritual energy of heaven and earth, he cannot use it again.
However, Fang Jinyu could retain the great divine powers he had cultivated before.
Fang Jinyu only needed to use a spirit pearl of the same attribute as the carrier!
Spirit pearls that contained a cultivator’s divine power were even more powerful than superior-grade spirit tools, so they were also called “pseudo-magic treasures.”
However, once the wind power in the Wind Spirit Pearl was used up, the myriad transformation technique could no longer be used. Although he could still replace the Wind Spirit Pearl with a new one, the great divine power of the myriad transformation technique would be greatly reduced every time he replaced the Wind Spirit Pearl.
According to ancient records, after three exchanges, even a great divine power that had been cultivated to perfection would be of little value to Core Formation stage cultivators and could only be rewarded to Foundation Establishment stage descendants.
A spirit pearl with great divine power could only be used a few times, but for Core Formation stage cultivators without any magic treasures, it was unquestionably a great killing tool as long as the great divine power’s strength wasn’t diminished!
Apart from that, the spirit pearl could also make up for the cultivator’s flaws, increase the power of the spells and techniques he cast, and reduce the consumption of inner energy when casting spells.
It was also because of this that spirit pearls became the hard currency for Core Formation stage cultivators.
Other than superior-grade spirit tools like the purple-volt spiritual fire, spiritual items of other grades could be obtained by trading with spirit pearls!
Fang Jinyu said, “This is one of my previous great divine powers, and I’ve also cultivated it to its peak. However, after I switched to another cultivation technique, I can’t use it anymore.”
“Then what will you use, senior brother?” Xin Qianqian didn’t accept it. Instead, she looked at Fang Jinyu and asked.
Since Fang Jinyu chose to change his cultivation technique when he was already in the Core Formation stage, there was no doubt that the cultivation technique he changed to was more powerful! However, no matter how amazing a cultivation technique was, it would still take time to re-cultivate the great divine powers and magic techniques within it!
Moreover, Xin Qianqian had heard her grandmother mention the spirit pearl that had been infused with great divine powers before. She knew that it could be considered half a magic treasure!
Fang Jinyu said, “I was still able to use most of my previous great divine powers.”
Fang Jinyu could still use the great divine power—the lifeless thunderstorm technique. Since his lightning inner energy was purer and stronger, when the thunder sounded, even early-stage Core Formation cultivators would be injured instantly!
It was just a preliminary estimate.
Fang Jinyu had yet to test out its power.
However, the thunderbolt—the innate great divine powers of the ancient authentic spirit Kui cattle bloodline—was of little value to Fang Jinyu after he had mastered the lightning spell.
It was because Fang Jinyu’s every movement could draw down lightning.
Even those late-stage Foundation Establishment cultivators could avoid or meet the attack head-on, so it wasn’t as domineering as the thunderbolt, but it won out because it used up less inner energy and exerted much more power!
In a short while, it was a sea of lightning!
“What about your secret techniques?”
Fang Jinyu said, “The attribute of my spiritual root does not impose limitations on the secret techniques I have cultivated.” Since he had already decided to cultivate the lightning-attribute Tianling spiritual root, how could he not have made preparations?
Switching to the lightning spell only caused Fang Jinyu to lose a portion of his wind-attribute great divine powers and magic techniques.
Whether it was “I guess you can’t hit me,” “I’m good at hiding,” “I eat a lot, but I’m super strong,” or the “mystery realm” Fang Jinyu had learned from Qing Fu, or the skyrocket scripture and raw refining technique he had learned from the Tianling Sect, they weren’t affected at all.
The only thing that left Fang Jinyu awkward was that there was only one escape-type great divine power in the lightning spell—the lightning-disappear technique.
However, Fang Jinyu didn’t dare use it to improve his cultivation base.
The lightning-disappear technique could let him disappear a few thousand miles away, and with the skyrocket scripture, it would improve it a hundred times. It meant that Fang Jinyu could fly a few thousand miles away without knowing with a single thought.
There were many desolate forbidden lands in the Nine Desolations.
Fang Jinyu might have gone to other immortal sects, or he might have met some monsters in the desolate forbidden land.
At that time, even if Fang Jinyu said that he was just going on a trip, they wouldn’t be able to communicate because of the language barrier.
Suddenly, Fang Jinyu realized that the girl in front of him was looking at him strangely. He asked, “What’s wrong?”
The young girl spoke bluntly, “Senior brother, let me taste a great cultivator! Can I do it?”
“It’s not convenient at the moment.”
“Then I’ll do it myself.” Xin Qianqian was willing to adapt to the circumstances.
