424 A Year in the Immortal Realm Is the “Cultivation Ability” (Part 2)
Afterward, the cultivator who ranked 9 in the Incarnation stage and came from the noble race of the origin realm said, “Fellow Daoist Zhang, I won’t hide this from you. It’s a secret about my origin realm. Since Zhu Tianer is talented in a certain cultivation technique, if we use a special secret technique to stimulate her, we can turn her into a cultivation core. If I refine it, I can greatly increase my chances of completing my cultivation validation!”
Zhang Chenglong didn’t expect Zhu Tianer, who was only average in everything other than looks and talent in refining weapons, to be such an incredible spirit herb that could help one complete cultivation validation!
While feeling regretful, Zhang Chenglong couldn’t help but say, “Fellow Daoist Chu Yu, please rest assured. I have known her for many years. If I spend some time and effort to contact her, I will be able to find out her whereabouts!”
Since the cultivators from the origin realm had targeted Zhu Tianer, Zhang Chenglong could no longer use her as a spirit herb to complete his cultivation validation. He could only use her to continue befriending the cultivators from the origin realm.
The cultivator, who ranked 9 in the Incarnation stage and came from the noble race of the origin realm, immediately promised, “Thank you, Fellow Daoist Zhang! I guarantee that as long as I can use her cultivation core to complete cultivation validation, I will help you complete cultivation validation!”
After all, just the fact that Zhang Chenglong had been recorded in the Heavenly Stele was enough for him to rope him in.
Not to mention that Zhang Chenglong had sided with the origin realm, right?
People like them from the origin realm, who had great businesses, would never mind having another “dog” that could help them bite their enemies and their kind.
At the small immortal domain, the Immortal Ascension Hall.
After hesitating, Fang Jinyu still didn’t step through the open “Door of Immortality.”
A door that could only be pushed open by a cultivator who ranked 9 in the Immortal Ascension stage was open to Fang Jinyu. Although it seemed like no problem, Fang Jinyu still guessed in the worst way.
“Could someone discover the bet between me and the Immortal Official?”
“Or did she do something after we made the bet?”
Fang Jinyu was bewildered.
Fang Jinyu then tried to close the “Door of Immortality” after thinking for a while.
However, Fang Jinyu was surprised that the “Door of Immortality” closed on its own when he touched it. It was fast, and it happened in an instant. It was as if the previously opened door was just an illusion.
However, how could Fang Jinyu have had an illusion when he reached such a realm?
Fang Jinyu stared at the “Door of Immortality.” He didn’t know why the gate was opened at the beginning and closed after he touched it. Even if the opened gate represented a good thing, he felt more at ease when it was closed.
Fang Jinyu didn’t need such an “unexpected” opportunity!
Thinking of this, Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but think of the previous “gains in his cultivation ability.” He felt happy and said, “The system didn’t disappoint me…”
It was a form of power, a way of expressing one’s cultivation path, and a proof of one’s existence!
It was because of the cultivation ability that the Immortal Ascension stage was known to be “immortal and indestructible.”
However, the cultivation ability was also unique, which set it apart from magical power. When one exhausted his magical power, he could quickly recover it as long as his cultivation base existed.
However, one couldn’t recover his cultivation ability!
The cultivation ability would disappear forever once one had used it up.
If the total number of cultivation abilities was 10, after using the cultivation abilities that represented the number 3, the total number of cultivation abilities would become 7!
It was no longer the same amount as before!
The only way to regain 10 cultivation abilities was to cultivate them again.
In addition, the strength of cultivation ability was measured by years.
The “year” of common knowledge didn’t apply to the unit, though!
It was because only when one’s cultivation ability reached a certain level could it be called a year of cultivation ability. If it were twice the standard strength, it would be two years of cultivation ability! If it were tripled, it would naturally be three years of cultivation ability, and so on.
The strength of the year’s cultivation ability was roughly the result of an Immortal Ascension stage cultivator fusing his cultivation technique into his Immortal Ascension place and circulating it day and night for 365 years.
It just so happened to correspond to the saying that one day in the immortal realm is one year in the lower realm!
When 365 years had passed in the mortal world in the Sea of Realms, only one year had passed in the immortal realm above the 33 layers of the Sea of Realms.
Even with Fang Jinyu’s accumulation of the lightning heavenly book, the incomplete thunder scripture, the perfect incarnation technique, and his uniqueness, he could only obtain 81 years of cultivation ability after he completed cultivation validation.
It just happened to correspond to the number of immortal opportunities needed to open up the small immortal domain.
Moreover, the addition of gains in Fang Jinyu’s cultivation ability would recover his loss of cultivation ability. At the same time, it would increase his cultivation ability by the same number of years as the number of immortal opportunities needed to open up a small immortal domain.
In other words, Fang Jinyu now had 162 years of cultivation ability!
Not only did Fang Jinyu’s cultivation ability surpass those cultivators who had broken through the Immortal Ascension stage for tens of thousands of years, but as long as his “self-cultivation tribulation” could descend, he could immediately attempt to break through rank 2 in the Immortal Ascension stage.
The cultivation ability required to break through rank 2 in the Immortal Ascension stage was a hundred years!
“Unfortunately, my path of freedom has already reached the end of the path…”
Perhaps the path of freedom was ridiculously strong, or perhaps there was no such thing as freedom in this world, so once Fang Jinyu completed cultivation validation, he could no longer advance further in his cultivation path.
It was at the end of the path!
After breaking through the Immortal Ascension stage, Fang Jinyu’s gains from the system changed from random to large-scale control.
What was large-scale control?
If Fang Jinyu set the system to benefit his body, appearance, physique, bloodline, and so on—as long as it was related to his body of flesh and blood—he could randomly obtain gains from the system!
It was different from the past. Fang Jinyu wouldn’t suddenly obtain unrelated gains from the system, such as gains in his dragon’s core.
Therefore, Fang Jinyu only needed to set the system to benefit his cultivation. Afterward, he needed to persevere and never give up. One day, he could get the results he wanted!
At that time, Fang Jinyu could obtain gains for his path of freedom.
Regarding this, Fang Jinyu was full of confidence. After all, no matter how unlucky he was, he believed he could at least obtain it a few times in hundreds of thousands of years, right?
“Now that I’ve broken through to the Immortal Ascension stage, I can take a breather for the time being.”
Fang Jinyu spread his hands, and a stone axe appeared in his hand. As he stepped into the Immortal Ascension stage, the stone axe no longer had any secrets.
Fang Jinyu could only say that the deal back then was worth it!
The material of the stone axe was ordinary. A common tree branch was used to make the wood, and some vine skin was used to make the rope that held it together. The stone used as the axe could be found everywhere in the stream.
However, the unusual thing was that the primitive ancients made the stone axe. When the “stump-like” Everlasting Immortal Wood recognized the primitive ancients, the stone axe unexpectedly possessed the characteristics of Everlasting Immortal Wood.
Initially, the “everlasting” characteristic was extremely weak, but it was unexpectedly preserved after having a few strands of immortal opportunity.
It gave Fang Jinyu a chance.
Fang Jinyu could use acquired methods to nurture the weak “everlasting” characteristic!
Coincidentally, a certain little girl’s secret technique could do it.
When Fang Jinyu thought of the name of the secret technique, the corners of his mouth twitched. Therefore, he chose to ignore it. Afterward, he followed the secret technique and began to use the stone axe as “immortal treasure sustenance.” Afterward, he began to cultivate.
Perhaps it was because Fang Jinyu had broken through the Immortal Ascension stage and his primordial spirit had undergone a world-shaking transformation that he found it easy to comprehend and cultivate the secret technique called “Mother Qing Fu, let me give you a bow.” In the end, he didn’t even need the gains from the system before he successfully broke through the beginner level.
The stone axe then turned into a pseudo-immortal treasure.
Fang Jinyu carefully comprehended the treasure when holding it in his hand. After knowing the power of the stone axe, he couldn’t help but show a strange expression.
“The Life-pulling Slash?”
Although its name sounded domineering, it could cause the lost items related to the person to resonate with each other after the axe was slashed out.
In other words, it was used to find things.
The only thing that was worth praising was that the slash also ignored the concept of space. Therefore, no matter how far away the lost item was from Fang Jinyu, he could find it with a slash!
“It seems to be a little helpful to me…” Fang Jinyu remembered that he did have a lost item.
