126 The Immortal Seed!
“The prescriptions of the upper realm are even more mysterious. It controls the medicinal properties in an even more strict way… However, the spiritual power of the elixirs isn’t as good as the Core-Tempering Elixir I refined previously. What a strange situation!”
After Fang Jinyu studied the elixirs he bought, he was inevitably surprised by the result.
Fang Jinyu thought, “Isn’t this the upper realm?!”
“Could it be… It’s because of the spiritual energy of the upper realm… Is it too thin?” After thinking about it, Fang Jinyu could only think of this possibility. The spiritual energy was thin, so the medicinal properties of the spirit herbs were seriously insufficient.
However, Fang Jinyu felt it was still worth it to comprehend and cultivate such a mysterious and strict alchemy method.
It was because it was beneficial to Fang Jinyu’s self-created elixir refining method. Once the refinement was completed and he mastered the elixir refining methods of the upper realm, he could use spirit herbs with weaker spirituality and medicinal properties to refine elixirs that met his requirements!
For example, Fang Jinyu could use those withered Foundation Establishment Fruits that had almost no medicinal properties to refine qualified Foundation Establishment Elixirs.
However, Fang Jinyu wasn’t in a rush to complete it. After he packed up, he walked out.
This time, Fang Jinyu wanted to observe the Core Formation stage cultivators of the upper realm. After refining the high-grade spiritual magic treasure replica, he could still sense the suppressing feeling he had before.
It was also Fang Jinyu’s ridiculous idea of being able to fight ten cultivators who ranked 9 in the Core Formation stage, like Yin Wujiu.
Previously, when Fang Jinyu was communicating with Xin Qianqian through the nameless mirror, he suddenly thought of a possibility.
The immortal seed!
When Fang Jinyu broke through the Core Formation stage, he didn’t sense the existence of the so-called immortal seed.
But now, it seemed that it should be the influence of the existence of the immortal seed!
Since Fang Jinyu wanted to observe the Core Formation stage cultivators, attending the hundred-day banquet of Commander Yin’s daughter was undoubtedly a good place to go.
Fang Jinyu had also prepared the congratulatory gift.
It was a bottle of the “Wisdom-awakening Elixir” that Fang Jinyu had once refined. This kind of elixir wasn’t differentiated by the cultivation stage because it could be considered a relatively low-grade special elixir.
By letting the newborn carry it day and night, it could subtly make the baby smarter.
However, there was a prerequisite, and that was that the baby couldn’t have spiritual roots.
According to the words left behind by Commander Yin, the cultivators attending the banquet didn’t need to prepare spiritual items suitable for infants. It was obvious that his daughter didn’t have spiritual roots.
Otherwise, her father, who was a Core Formation stage cultivator, wouldn’t have said such words.
With the usual style of the six great commanders of the Demon-extinguishing Immortal City, they would definitely take the opportunity to make a fortune at this time!
When Fang Jinyu arrived, he realized that there were only two Core Formation stage cultivators in Commander Yin’s residence. It was so deserted that it exceeded his imagination.
Moreover, the two Core Formation stage cultivators were very reserved, as if they were inferior to others.
The scene surprised Fang Jinyu.
However, Fang Jinyu didn’t say anything. He just looked for Yin Wujiu and said, “Commander, this is a bottle of elixirs I refined. It’s called the Wisdom-awakening Elixir. It doesn’t have any magical effects. It can only make infants without spiritual roots carry it day and night to become smarter.”
Yin Wujiu was shocked and asked, “Brother Han, do you know how to refine elixirs?”
“I do know a little, but my alchemy skills are average. I’m far from the other alchemists.” Fang Jinyu didn’t reveal anything.
“Brother Han, no wonder you can break through the Core Formation stage at such a young age!” Yin Wujiu didn’t believe his words, he considered Fang Jinyu to be humble, but at the same time, he didn’t think that Fang Jinyu’s alchemy skills were amazing.
“Thank you for your kindness, Brother Han!” Yin Wujiu said and invited Fang Jinyu in.
Of course, Fang Jinyu also greeted the other two Core Formation stage cultivators warmly.
However, the two Core Formation stage cultivators were still a little reserved because they had sneaked in from the lower realm and were lucky enough to come to the Demon-extinguishing Immortal City safely. As they had used spirit stones to bribe the guards of the Demon-extinguishing Immortal City, they were recommended to work under Yin Wujiu as soon as they arrived.
As soon as Fang Jinyu entered, he saw a beautiful woman in her twenties carrying a baby with a wrinkled face.
The woman’s cultivation base wasn’t high. She was only an early-stage Foundation Establishment cultivator.
Looking at the deserted banquet, Fang Jinyu knew instantly that she was most likely a concubine.
However, if that was the case, why did Yin Wujiu personally come to invite Fang Jinyu?
“Brother Han, this is my daughter, Ah Lan.”
Yin Wujiu even brought the baby girl over for Fang Jinyu to hug.
Fang Jinyu naturally wouldn’t reject such a favor.
“Commander, you and your daughter look alike.” Fang Jinyu said something that suited the occasion, but in fact, the baby’s little face was scrunched up, and he couldn’t tell anything.
However, Yin Wujiu was still very happy when he heard it. He couldn’t help but laugh.
Afterward, Yin Wujiu led Fang Jinyu and the two Core Formation stage cultivators to the banquet. Although the hundred-day banquet was cold and cheerless, the food and wine were extremely sumptuous, especially the pot of spiritual wine. It was even somewhat beneficial to Core Formation stage cultivators.
After drinking the wine, the two Core Formation stage cultivators were no longer acting reserved. At the same time, they even talked about some interesting things they had seen in the world they were born in.
Only then did Fang Jinyu know that these two were also Core Formation stage cultivators from the lower realm!
However, unlike Fang Jinyu, the two came from a lower realm that had been controlled by the upper realm for a long time—the Mountain River Realm.
The Mountain River Realm was just like the Nine Desolations. The Nascent Soul stage was their cultivation limit.
Although the Mountain River Realm had the Incarnation stage legacy, the cultivators there couldn’t break through it. However, the upper realm had set up a merit chart. As long as one was on the merit chart and was a Nascent Soul stage cultivator, they could ascend to the upper realm!
It was easy to enter the merit chart. One only had to swear loyalty to the immortal sects of the upper realm and work hard for the upper realm for hundreds of years after ascending. However, it was difficult to become a Nascent Soul stage cultivator!
For this reason, the Core Formation stage cultivator’s illegal ascension was born.
However, Fang Jinyu also exposed the fact that he wasn’t a Core Formation stage cultivator born in the upper realm. However, it was fine. Yin Wujiu obviously knew about it long ago. Moreover, the Demon-extinguishing Immortal City had set such a rule—If one paid enough high-grade sin cores, they could immediately become a member of the city’s general guard. It was obvious that they “welcomed” the Core Formation stage cultivators from the lower realm.
Although the word “welcome” was in double quotation marks, and there was a high chance that the upper realm was looking for cannon fodder, it was indeed a gesture of strong support.
Otherwise, Fang Jinyu couldn’t easily become the Demon-extinguishing Immortal City’s general guard. Moreover, nobody asked about his background when he took out the sin cores!
However, when the two Core Formation stage cultivators, who were a little reserved at the time, realized it, their expressions immediately became firm. Afterward, they even asked with some posturing, “Brother Han, may I know which lower realm you’re from? How many Nascent Soul stage cultivators were in charge there? Which method did you take to ascend?”
The two Core Formation stage cultivators were clearly more confident after hearing it.
It was as if such a comparison could make them feel that they were nobler!
Fang Jinyu said calmly, “We are different.”
“How is it different?” The two Core Formation stage cultivators didn’t believe it. One of them couldn’t help but reveal a mocking expression.
Fang Jinyu continued to speak calmly, “I’m a general guard. However, the two of you are nothing.” Since the other party had offered, he had to mock them back, right?
Otherwise, wouldn’t it seem like Fang Jinyu… Oh, now it’s Han Feiyu, who doesn’t change his name. Wouldn’t it seem like he is being a little rude?
The two Core Formation stage cultivators immediately changed their expressions. Afterward, one of them said angrily, “You can be a general guard all because of your military merits. When we fight the Sin Beasts next time, we will become the city’s general guards too!”
“You don’t have to wait for the great battle, right? You can just go dozens of miles away, and the Sin Beasts there will be willing to fight with you two for three hundred rounds.” Fang Jinyu pretended to tease them, but in fact, he was paying attention to their answers.
One of them was a middle-stage Core Formation cultivator, while the other was talkative. Although he was an early-stage Core Formation cultivator like Fang Jinyu, he was ranked 3 in the Core Formation stage, which was one rank higher than Fang Jinyu.
According to Fang Jinyu’s reference to his speed in killing the Sin Beasts, the two Core Formation stage cultivators should be able to easily kill them.
However, as soon as Fang Jinyu finished speaking, the two of them immediately revealed angry expressions. The one who rarely spoke couldn’t help but shout, “What’s the difference between this and asking us to die?”
Fang Jinyu was now able to confirm his previous speculation.
The immortal seed!
The two Core Formation stage cultivators from the Mountain River Realm didn’t have immortal seeds.
However, Fang Jinyu wasn’t sure whether the immortal seed could suppress the Sin Beasts or whether the immortal seed could suppress the Core Formation stage cultivators without the immortal seed.
Although Fang Jinyu had an answer in his heart, he wasn’t completely sure.
Unless someone asked Fang Jinyu to kill a few cultivators who ranked 9 in the Core Formation stage.
At that time, Fang Jinyu could be 100% sure.
It was obviously unrealistic, but fortunately, the two Core Formation stage cultivators were “understanding” and took the initiative to show off their great divine powers. Perhaps their words just now made them seem too cowardly, so they couldn’t wait to prove themselves.
However, Fang Jinyu was quite worried that Yin Wujiu would reject him. Fortunately, Yin Wujiu didn’t reject him.
Thus, these two Core Formation stage cultivators from the Mountain River Realm each displayed their specialty, two great divine powers that were compatible with their spiritual roots.
It made Fang Jinyu’s eyes flash slightly.
It was because the Core Formation stage cultivators from the Mountain River Realm didn’t have the embryonic form of a domineering magic domain!
“The heavens and earth magic domains are a commonly used technique of the Nascent Soul stage cultivators. As for the embryonic form of the magic domain of a Core Formation stage cultivator, it can also be said to be their hallmark. Even if they don’t use their great divine powers and just deliberately circulate their inner energy, they can still form the phenomenon of the embryonic form of the magic domain.”
When Fang Jinyu was cultivating, there would be flashes of lightning from time to time at the place where he was cultivating. Even if Fang Jinyu deliberately restrained himself, he still plowed that place.
If it weren’t for the restrictive enchantment suppressing it, his General Guard’s Residence would have collapsed long ago.
Afterward, Fang Jinyu saw that the two Core Formation stage cultivators from the Mountain River Realm who had finished showing their techniques surprisingly absorbed the spiritual energy in the spirit stones to recover their inner energy.
Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but feel a little surprised.
The Core Formation stage cultivators in the Nine Desolations abandoned the spirit stones like worn-out shoes. In the end, the spiritual energy in the spirit stones was almost useless to Core Formation stage cultivators.
But now, these two Core Formation stage cultivators from the Mountain River Realm could turn the spiritual energy in the spirit stones into their inner energy!
“So the embryonic form of the magic domain is a part of the immortal seed…”
Fang Jinyu suddenly understood the situation. It was also because of this that the magical powers of the Nine Desolations’ Core Formation stage cultivators were so “high-class” that they directly exceeded the scope of the conversion of spiritual energy in spirit stones.
