299 From Now On, the Hot Shots Will Be Useless
It was the shortest time that Fang Jinyu had been in the dream.
However, the “shortest time” was only temporary.
It was because the chessboard wasn’t ordinary. Every piece placed on it was equivalent to a year’s lifespan.
Fang Jinyu’s 100-year lifespan was only enough for him to place 100 pieces. Even if he didn’t lose in the end, he wouldn’t be able to hold on for long. Moreover, if he hadn’t been bluffing the entire way and intimidating the other party, the game would have ended very quickly. He wouldn’t even have the chance to place 20 or 30 pieces!
After Fang Jinyu returned from the dream, he fell into a miraculous state.
It was because Fang Jinyu had won a hundred chess pieces and awakened the cultivation ability of the body in his dreams! Even though he had left the dream, part of that cultivation ability followed closely behind him and came to reality from the dream.
The cultivation ability was the exclusive power of the Immortal Ascension stage, but it was also the foundation for achieving the First Immortal!
However, the cultivation ability wasn’t something that could only be accumulated over time.
The best way to improve one’s cultivation ability was to experience enough cultivation tribulation! After passing the tribulation, all kinds of life forces came. Not only could one’s cultivation improve greatly, but if one could comprehend something, one could even advance into a higher realm.
However, this cultivation method was too extreme, so only a few Immortal Ascension stage cultivators would choose to cultivate in this way.
After all, once one broke through the Immortal Ascension stage, they would be considered to have the same lifespan as the heavens and earth.
Even though they would die, exhaust their life span, and disappear, it wouldn’t take long for them to reincarnate and step into the human world again. At that time, they would have tens of thousands of years to enjoy!
There were too many opportunities and time!
If the current tens of thousands of years didn’t work, then they could wait another tens of thousands of years!
Even if it was a cultivation tribulation, they could use this method to delay it. At most, because of the delay, their cultivation might not advance an inch for several lifetimes.
Were the consequences very serious?
To an Immortal Ascension stage cultivator, it was nothing! It could even be said that there were no consequences.
The Immortal Ascension stage cultivators were able to roam freely and overlook the passage of time because of the cultivation abilities they had obtained when they first broke through the Immortal Ascension stage.
That was all!
The cultivation ability was so extraordinary. Therefore, with the support of the portion of cultivation ability, although Fang Jinyu was still ranked 9 in the Nascent Soul stage, there was already a hint of the Immortal Ascension stage’s charm in the depths of his soul.
The concept of the soul could be said to be illusory and merely a description. As for the Immortal Ascension stage’s charm, it was even more illusory!
Most immortal cultivators could not see, touch, or even sense the two during their lifetimes, but as Fang Jinyu’s soul attained the Immortal Ascension stage charm, plenty of insights that went beyond his current realm began to manifest in his mind.
The source of these insights was the chess game Fang Jinyu had played earlier!
The various killing moves that had appeared on the chessboard appeared in Fang Jinyu’s mind one by one. They were originally the killing moves of the chessboard, but now there was an inevitable change.
Suddenly, Fang Jinyu moved. He opened his eyes and raised his right hand. His three fingers and thumb were slightly closed as if he were holding something.
In front of him, an illusory chessboard suddenly appeared.
The chessboard was now filled with chess pieces. The chess pieces weren’t only black and white, but also gold, red, green, orange, purple, and so on. The various colors corresponded to people with great luck.
Among them, four people had the most striking luck.
They were Xiao Youyue, Chi Suzi, Yi Yuaner, and Bu Qianyao.
Fang Jinyu’s gaze first stopped on “Xiao Youyue” for a while, but it quickly moved back, from “Chi Suzi” to “Yi Yuaner”, and finally stopped on “Bu Qianyao.”
Fang Jinyu remembered that this woman had once provoked him recklessly, for a man!
Thus, Fang Jinyu placed his chess piece expressionlessly.
A colorless and invisible chess piece fell on the golden piece corresponding to Bu Qianyao.
Suddenly, the chess piece representing Bu Qianyao lost its golden color.
Thunder suddenly sounded around the world. It was because a large amount of luck had dissipated in the world, causing some strange phenomena in nature.
In an immortal city hundreds of thousands of miles away, Bu Qianyao had already formed a first-grade core, but her cultivation suddenly fell from the Core Formation stage.
The coincidence incident was that the Core Formation stage great cultivator she had offended before was here!
“Fairy Bu, my daughter only took advantage of the chaos to steal a treasure from the secret realm. Although my daughter was in the wrong at first, after all, you were the one who left the treasure behind. Why did you have to kill her? Before killing her, you even asked someone to humiliate her!” The person was a Core Formation stage great cultivator who formed a low-grade core. The Core Formation stage great cultivator had broken through the Core Formation stage many years ago and was still ranked 1 in the Core Formation stage.
Originally, Bu Qianyao could have killed such a Core Formation stage cultivator with a swing of her sword, but now she could only run for her life.
It seemed that her good luck had been exhausted. This time, not only did she not escape like before, but she also offended someone along the way. Thus, Bu Qianyao, who had inexplicably fallen from the Core Formation stage, was tortured and killed on this day.
A few hours later, Fang Jinyu received news of Bu Qianyao on the Tianling Sect’s Mount Xiaohe.
To be precise, it was the news of her death.
Fang Jinyu was surprised. After he placed his chess piece, Bu Qianyao’s luck was crushed. Without luck, even if Bu Qianyao didn’t die, she would still be like Ximen Jianyi, encountering all kinds of bad luck.
“From now on, the hot shots will only be useless things.”
Fang Jinyu said calmly.
However, the “calmness” only referred to Fang Jinyu’s expression. In Fang Jinyu’s heart, he couldn’t help but feel a little happy.
After all, as the saying goes, divine powers are no match for the heavens.
Sometimes, destiny refers to luck!
But now, Fang Jinyu had a self-created divine power. He no longer needed to worry about people with strong luck!
Once Fang Jinyu placed his colorless chess piece down, even if the other party’s luck was too heaven-defying and he couldn’t destroy it, he could still tear a large portion of it away, causing the other party to no longer be as glorious as before.
[Today is the day of self-creating world-defying divine power to forcefully interfere with the Immortal Ascension stage cultivators and kill a hot shot.]
[Refined Ultimate Heart Force +1]
Fang Jinyu looked at the reward from the system and couldn’t help but be surprised.
What is the ultimate heart force?
However, Fang Jinyu soon found out, and his eyes revealed a hint of surprise and joy.
“So there’s such a benefit to killing a hotshot?”
“Could it be that this is the correct way to know a hot shot?”
At this moment, Fang Jinyu finally realized that the “ultimate heart force” was the core of using the perfect incarnation technique to break through the Incarnation stage!
Without heart force, even if one cultivated the heavenly-merit immortal scripture to perfection and prepared all the secondary and auxiliary conditions, they could only use the heavenly incarnation technique to break through the Incarnation stage.
