Chapter 309 - 309 Lord Cultivator Han Feiyu’s “Return”
309 Lord Cultivator Han Feiyu’s “Return”
In the Cave Lake Realm, the Shenhua Sect had started to lose its power over the years. Fortunately, it wasn’t just the Shenhua Sect but the Yaochi Sect, Lanxing Sect, and Fishery Sect as well. They didn’t have to worry about the top sects of the same level attacking and splitting the Shenhua Sect.
As for the Goddess Sect, which was also one of the five great immortal sects in the Cave Lake Realm, the departure of Fairy Qing didn’t affect them much.
After the women who became “Aromantic Immortals” knew that Fairy Qing wasn’t in the same realm as them, all those who knew about it heaved a sigh of relief.
Although the Goddess Sect had borrowed her name, that woman was still a great threat to the Goddess Sect.
After all, the other cultivators might have forgotten, but the people of the Goddess Sect would never forget how she had personally killed all the disciples she had raised since she was young!
Therefore, the Goddess Sect was the only beneficiary of the departure of the five “hardworking experts.”
However, since they knew the truth behind the departure of the five “hardworking experts,” the Goddess Sect didn’t make any moves in the past few years. Instead, the other immortal sects began to plan something.
After all, a top-notch immortal sect represented not only status but also cultivation resources!
For example, the Shenhua Sect had a method to allow a cultivator who ranked 9 in the Core Formation stage to break through the Nascent Soul stage. The other four top immortal sects also had the same method, but none of the other immortal sects, including the “12 lands,” had it!
It wasn’t because the inheritances of these immortal sects were incomplete, but because they lacked a key resource.
The spiritual item is called the Lightning Evasion Crystal!
It was a cultivation resource that was monopolized by the five great immortal sects. Every time the Lightning Evasion Crystal was produced, even if there was excess, it would never leak out.
It was because it could be said to be a spiritual item that could defy the heavens and change one’s fate.
Its grade wasn’t as high as a grade 9 heavenly material and earthly treasure. It was only a grade 6 heavenly material and earthly treasure. However, the effect of the spiritual item was too special.
It could hide from the lightning tribulation!
However, the Lightning Evasion Crystal was only one of the cultivation resources monopolized by the five great immortal sects.
When the five “hardworking experts” appeared, the immortal sects of the Cave Lake Realm, including the “12 lands,” didn’t dare to resist.
It was because the five “hardworking experts” not only broke through rank 9 in the Incarnation stage, but they also qualified for the cultivation validation. Their great divine and magical powers had undergone unprecedented changes.
It wasn’t cultivation ability but was similar to cultivation ability.
The cultivation ability was the foundation of Immortal Ascension stage cultivators. Therefore, even if there were only one or two similarities, it was enough for the five “hardworking experts” to possess strengths that far exceeded those of the same level.
However, it wasn’t just the five who were talented and intelligent in the Cave Lake Realm. The rest were mediocre and weren’t qualified to achieve cultivation validation. Instead, it was the latecomers who, without exception, were killed by the five “hardworking experts” as soon as they showed signs of being able to achieve cultivation validation.
After all, five “hardworking experts” were enough. Who could stand a few more?
Human nature is selfish.
However, the five “hardworking experts” were now gone. The sects represented by the 12 lands had already taken the lead in asking for the same share of the Lightning Evasion Crystal!
After the other sects heard about it, they all responded.
Although they didn’t have the right to split the profits, as long as they didn’t stand on the wrong side, they could have a share of the profits in the future.
Moreover, even if they failed, they could at least disgust the top-notch immortal sects!
Therefore, after Fang Jinyu understood the information, he thought, “It seems that I’ve returned at the right time?”
“Disciples of the Shenhua Sect greet Lord Cultivator Han Feiyu!”
Standing on the high platform, Fang Jinyu looked down at the worship of the disciples below the stage. Although his expression was natural, he couldn’t help but complain in his heart.
At this moment, Fang Jinyu heard Lord Cultivator Yuanyu’s voice, saying, “Junior brother, I believed you were different from us, right? You didn’t break through the Incarnation stage by only using the mini-perfection incarnation technique, right?”
It was the divine sense of voice transmission.
Since Lord Cultivator Yuanyu used the mini-perfection incarnation technique to break through, she had only managed to form a few wisps of divine consciousness ever since she had formed her primordial spirit, even though it had been 1,500 years.
Not to mention the ability to sense the world, even if she wanted to improve her strength, she was still unable to do so.
As for her cultivation base, she was still only ranked 1 in the Incarnation stage.
It was also the fundamental reason why the mini-perfection incarnation technique wasn’t considered an incarnation technique! The Incarnation stage cultivators who used the mini-perfection incarnation technique could be said to only have the lifespan of an Incarnation stage cultivator.
As a result, when Lord Cultivator Yuanyu used the divine sense of voice transmission, the other Incarnation stage cultivators of the Shenhua Sect also heard it and looked over them.
As for Lord Cultivator Yuanyu addressing Fang Jinyu as her “junior brother,” rather than “disciple,” it was because Fang Jinyu’s display of power when he returned had been far too astonishing. As the saying goes, great kindness would lead to great enmity. It was the same for the master-disciple relationship. After all, Fang Jinyu was only Lord Cultivator Yuanyu’s in-name disciple, and she had never taught Fang Jinyu meticulously.
Therefore, Lord Cultivator Yuanyu has taken the initiative to end the master-disciple relationship and treat Fang Jinyu as a member of the same generation.
Fang Jinyu nodded. He didn’t say that he used the perfect incarnation technique to break through. He simply admitted it.
“In this case, Junior Brother, can you solve this matter?” A look of delight appeared in Lord Cultivator Yuanyu’s eyes as she hurriedly used the divine sense of voice transmission again.
Fang Jinyu asked, “Senior Sister, are you mentioning that the Immortal sects of the ’12 lands’ want to get a share of the Lightning Evasion Crystal?”
Fang Jinyu didn’t speak, nor did his divine consciousness fluctuate. Even his expression didn’t change. However, his voice directly appeared in the hearts of the Shenhua Sect’s Incarnation stage cultivators!
When Fang Jinyu revealed his great divine power, these Incarnation stage cultivators were immediately shocked and delighted.
The good news was that after Xia Yi left, the Shenhua Sect had another person who could make important decisions. Although he wasn’t as strong as Xia Yi, who could suppress all those who were dissatisfied, it was enough for them to maintain their position as one of the five top-notch immortal sects.
However, they were shocked that Fang Jinyu could use his divine power so calmly when they didn’t notice it. It meant that Fang Jinyu could heavily injure them.
As for killing them… The few Incarnation stage cultivators didn’t believe Fang Jinyu could do it.
Since they had cultivated for thousands of years, many of them had some abilities. Some could refine powerful spirit tools or master some powerful magical powers. Not to mention, before Xia Yi left, he deliberately left his pseudo-immortal treasure behind!
The pseudo-immortal treasure happened to be compatible with one of their attributes.
“It’s exactly this matter!”
The other Incarnation stage cultivators of the Shenhua Sect spoke. The one who spoke was Qi Hesheng. He became an Incarnation stage cultivator 4,000 years ago and could be considered an “old antique” of the Shenhua Sect.
However, since he used the mini-perfection incarnation technique to break through, even though he had cultivated for more than 4,000 years, he was only ranked 2 in the Incarnation stage.
He could forcefully break through only because he had obtained an immortal realm elixir that had been passed down from ancient times. After that, he had forcefully broken through with the help of the powerful elixir. Otherwise, he would still rank 1 in the Incarnation stage, just like Lord Cultivator Yuanyu.
The choice of the incarnation technique was like the choice of the core formation technique. However, the former was tens of thousands of times more difficult and strict than the latter.
Qi Hesheng continued, “However, Junior Brother Han has just returned, so he doesn’t have a role to play yet. Since that’s the case, in my opinion, he should enter the Deva Palace and take charge of cultivating array formations and alchemy. How about that?”
To be able to live for more than 4,000 years, this Qi Hesheng was naturally someone with a sharp mind!
The Deva Palace didn’t exist in the Shenhua Sect before this. It was something Qi Hesheng had just thought of. However, by taking charge of cultivating array formations and alchemy, it could be considered to have given the Deva Palace great power!
It could be said that the array formation and elixir refinement of the Shenhua Sect were all handed over to Fang Jinyu. As for the related resources, they naturally belonged to Fang Jinyu.
Among the various types of cultivation, the five strongest were Alchemy, talisman refinement, spirit tool refinement, array formations, and puppet refinement.
However, because the origin of the path of puppets in this place was “beyond the heavens,” and they didn’t learn everything, the path of puppets was relatively weaker and not valued by many cultivators.
Qi Hesheng let Fang Jinyu take charge of cultivating array formations and alchemy without saying anything else. He was very sincere.
Of course, it was also something that the Shenhua Sect’s Incarnation stage cultivators had discussed beforehand.
“Thank you, senior brothers and sisters!”
Fang Jinyu nodded in agreement.
After taking charge of cultivating the Shuanhua Sect’s array formations and alchemy, it would be much easier for Fang Jinyu to obtain the resources needed to improve his Incarnation stage cultivation.
Qi Hesheng, Lord Cultivator Yuanyu, and the other Shenhua Sect’s Incarnation stage cultivators all laughed in unison when they saw the scene. Since Fang Jinyu had agreed, in their opinion, it meant that “Han Feiyu” was loyal.
After all, there was nothing more stable than mutual benefit!
They thought they were sincere.
At this moment, an Incarnation stage cultivator asked curiously, “Junior Brother Han, speaking of which, do you know the details of the mysterious calamity that our sect encountered back then?”
More than 200 years ago, a huge chunk of the sect suddenly disappeared, including the Secret Treasure Pavilion. They had investigated a lot about it, but they had never found any clues.
What was even stranger was that after Xia Yi personally checked, he told them not to investigate anymore, and the matter ended here.
“I don’t know either. Back then, I was also baffled. I was originally guarding the Secret Treasure Pavilion. However, I didn’t expect that I would suddenly go to another realm…” Fang Jinyu changed his story slightly. There was the matter of him recruiting disciples of the Shenhua Sect and establishing the Fang Sect, as well as the changes in that realm. However, he never mentioned a little girl.
Fang Jinyu only said someone who successfully achieved her cultivation validation in that realm sympathized with his encounter, so she pointed out a path for him to return. He only returned after going through countless difficulties.
An Incarnation stage cultivator couldn’t help but say, “The wonders of the outside world have truly captivated us. Junior Brother Han, you’re lucky to have won the favor of an Immortal Ascension stage Almighty.”
“Thank you for your hard work, Junior Brother Han. It was all thanks to you that you protected the disciples in that world.” Qi Hesheng thought the same, but he naturally couldn’t say that.
“This is what I should do.” Fang Jinyu said it with a natural expression.
After all, interpersonal relationships were maintained by lies.
Whether it was true or not, no one cared. What was important was whether he said it or not and what he said.
Soon, the grand ceremony of paying respects to “Lord Cultivator Han Feiyu” came to an end. The Incarnation stage cultivators left, and Fang Jinyu arrived at the newly established Deva Palace.
Fang Jinyu asked people around him to retreat, and immediately, he saw small blue dots flashing with lightning around him.
The small blue dots were very strange because there was a human figure faintly discernible within them.
Seeing the little blue dots, Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but have a strange expression. Afterward, he said helplessly, “I’ve just returned to the Shenhua Sect. You can’t ask me to immediately go and strike these Shenhua Sect disciples, right?”
