Yang Kai wasn’t in a hurry to cultivate. After roaming the world for so many years, he understood that sharpening a blade would not delay cutting firewood.
Taking out all the pills he had found from the Void Spirit Sword Sect’s storehouse, he lined up several dozen bottles of pills in front of him and opened them one by one to examine their efficacies.
His attainments in the Dao of Alchemy were extremely profound, so it was easy for him to identify the uses of these pills. After all, these pills from the Void Spirit Sword Sect weren’t too high-end.
Soon, bottles of pills were arranged neatly.
Yang Kai casually grabbed a bottle and opened it, pouring the entire bottle of pills into his mouth, followed by a second bottle and a third bottle. Only after eating five bottles worth did his stomach feel slightly bloated.
If he wanted to improve his strength as soon as possible, his body was his greatest asset. Thinking back to the path he had taken, the strength of his physique had given him too many advantages. Whether it was in cultivation or fighting against enemies, the quality of his physique was extremely important at times.
With a strong physique, he could endure more pressure and cultivate faster.
He had previously investigated this Divine Weapon World’s body, and this body’s aptitude wasn’t too good, nor was it too bad. It could only be said to be mediocre and average, but the quality of its physical body was difficult to compliment.
When it came to aptitude, one’s aptitude was basically fixed at birth. It was difficult for Yang Kai to improve, so he could only start from other aspects.
Fortunately, the power of the Dragon Vein in his bloodline could still be used, so using it to improve his body should be possible.
As the medicinal efficacies melted in his stomach, the slight feeling of fullness quickly expanded. Yang Kai felt as if there was a fire burning in his stomach, burning his organs.
This was only natural. Although these Spirit Pills from the Void Spirit Sword Sect weren’t high-end goods, Yang Kai was currently only a Fourth Order Mortal Rank cultivator. In the entire Divine Weapon World, he was only an ordinary existence, so how could he withstand so many medicinal effects?
If it really was an ordinary Fourth Order Mortal Rank cultivator, such a massive explosion of medicinal efficacies would have been enough to instantly kill them.
At this moment, Yang Kai was also feeling extremely uncomfortable, blood flowing out from his seven orifices, his body trembling uncontrollably, his face alternating between green and white, as if there were countless cat claws scratching his flesh.
He forced himself to use his Void Spirit Arts to stimulate the massive medicinal efficacy and circulate it through his blood and meridians, nourishing every inch of his body.
The power of the Dragon Vein hidden in Yang Kai’s bloodline was slowly being released. Although it wasn’t much, it was able to constantly repair his damaged flesh and meridians, ensuring that Yang Kai’s life would not be lost and he would be able to walk on the edge of life and death.
Between life and death, there were great dangers and great opportunities.
Slowly, Yang Kai adapted to the impact of the medicinal efficacy and his mental state became much better. Under the guidance of the Void Spirit Arts, the massive medicinal efficacy was gradually absorbed by Yang Kai’s flesh and blood, transforming into a powerful foundation.
After more than two hours, Yang Kai felt that the medicinal efficacies in his body were running low, so he silently felt that his physique had improved a lot compared to before. His flesh and blood had become more solid, and his meridians had become wider and more resilient, allowing more Spiritual Energy to flow through them. This was not only because of the five bottles of Spirit Pills, but also because of the subtle transformation of his Dragon Blood power. The latter was a large proportion of the benefits.
Compared to before, his body’s quality had increased by about twenty percent, making him quite satisfied.
A pungent smell filled his nose and his entire body was wet and sticky, as if a layer of mud was covering his entire body.
Yang Kai knew that these were the impurities that had been expelled from this body, so he couldn’t be bothered with them and simply took a few more bottles of pills.
This cycle repeated itself over again. The dozens of bottles of pills that the Void Spirit Sword Sect had painstakingly accumulated over the past few years had been completely consumed by Yang Kai in just three days. In the end, Yang Kai’s body had become several times stronger than before, and even the power of his Dragon Vein had been stimulated to a certain extent. Golden dragon blood flowed through his body, containing a terrifying power.
And this Dragon Vein’s power was constantly affecting and transforming Yang Kai’s body. Even if he did nothing, the quality of his body would become stronger.
Yang Kai’s cultivation had also risen from the Fourth Order to the Fifth Order!
Mortal, Earth, Heaven, and Spirit, each rank has nine stages, similar to the 9 grade of Open Heaven Stage. The Fourth and Seventh Order were two difficult stages, and the difference between them was like heaven and earth. Between the Fourth and Sixth Order, as long as one accumulated enough strength, they could naturally break through.
Yang Kai had consumed so many Spirit Pills, and although most of the medicinal efficacies were used to strengthen his body, there were still many that transformed into Spiritual Energy that filled his meridians and flesh, allowing his cultivation to rise to a higher level.
A rumbling sound rang out, and Yang Kai felt like he was about to die of hunger. If he opened his mouth, he could eat a cow.
This made him feel even more curious. How many years had it been since he had felt this kind of hunger? As his cultivation increased, he had long since passed the stage where he needed to eat. Even if he occasionally ate something, it would only satisfy his appetite and not his physical needs.
In this Divine Weapon World, a Mortal Rank cultivator was indeed not strong enough to cut off the need for food. On the contrary, the higher one’s cultivation, the greater their appetite.
The impurities that had been expelled from his body had already formed a hard shell, so Yang Kai simply left the cave mansion, took a bath, changed into a clean set of clothes, and went to the Sect’s kitchen to find some food to eat.
The disciple guarding the kitchen stared at Yang Kai in horror as he ate all the food in the kitchen.
Most importantly, Eldest Senior Brother’s transformation was quite significant.
Compared to a few days ago, Eldest Senior Brother’s figure was much thinner, and his originally tight-fitting clothes were now completely empty. At first glance, Eldest Senior Brother looked like he was suffering from malnutrition, but Eldest Senior Brother’s eyes were so bright it was a bit frightening.
“Who’s coming from the Discussion Hall?” Yang Kai grabbed a piece of mutton leg in each hand and chewed it happily as he looked towards the Discussion Hall.
Outside the Discussion Hall, two rows of disciples were lined up on either side of the hall. In his memory, only when a very important guest arrived would the Void Spirit Sword Sect show such scene.
The Junior Brother next to him quickly said, “I heard that a Protector from Tiger’s Roar Sect has arrived. The Sect Master and two Elders are currently discussing important matters with that person.”
“The people from Tiger’s Roar Sect…” Yang Kai nodded slightly, “They’re quite fast!”
The Tiger’s Rorar Sect’s people had come here for the Black Jade Mine, but there was nothing they could do about it. Just as Elder Hong Xiu had said, with the current ability of the Void Spirit Sword Sect, a Black Jade Mine was not something they could eat. If the Tiger’s Roar Sect wanted to interfere, the Void Spirit Sword Sect would be powerless to resist. Originally, they had planned to survive between Tiger’s Roar Sect and Heavenly Net Residence, but now that Zhan Yulin had been killed by him, there was no hope with Heavenly Net Residence.
But now that his strength was too low, he couldn’t care less about these things.
“Burp…” Yang Kai burped and licked the oil on his hand before patting the shoulder of the man next to him and wiping the excess oil on his clothes, “Alright, I’m going to cultivate now. Take care of the kitchen and don’t let any wild beasts steal anything from here!”
The Junior Brother watched Yang Kai leave before turning back to look at the empty kitchen. He wanted to cry, but no tears would come out. Tonight, his Senior Brothers and Junior Brothers would probably have nothing to eat and drink!
Returning to his cave mansion, Yang Kai looked at the white jade on the ground and relaxed his muscles.
There were about two thousand pieces of white jade stored in the entire Void Spirit Sword Sect, but for the current Yang Kai, it was not a small number, enough for him to use for some time.
A piece of white jade was the size of a chess piece. It was warm to the touch and one could clearly feel the Spiritual Energy contained within it.
Yang Kai sat down cross-legged in the middle of a pile of white jade and grabbed a handful of them with both hands. Taking a deep breath, he activated his Void Spirit Arts.
Pure Spiritual Energy poured into Yang Kai’s body from the white jade, flowing through his meridians and into his flesh and dantian.
After spending three days to transform his body, although it wasn’t too powerful, it was undoubtedly much stronger than before. This could be seen from the speed at which he absorbed the spiritual energy from the Spirit Jade.
The wider and more resilient meridians allowed one’s Spiritual Energy to flow more smoothly, allowing one’s absorption speed to naturally increase.
A large amount of spiritual energy poured into Yang Kai’s body, transforming into a powerful foundation. Yang Kai’s originally thin body slowly expanded as if it was being blown by a gust of wind, quickly becoming quite handsome and imposing, his loose clothes also gradually sticking to his body.
A moment later, Yang Kai could no longer feel any Spiritual Energy pouring into his body. Opening his palm, he saw that the Spirit Jades in his hands had already become dull and gray.
The energy within the Spirit Jade had been completely absorbed.
Yang Kai tossed aside the Spirit Jade in his hand and grabbed another handful before continuing.
Time passed by slowly, and after refining more than six hundred pieces of white jade, Yang Kai felt that he had reached his limit. His body was filled with an unbearable amount of Spiritual Energy that rampaged through his meridians and flesh, causing him unbearable pain and causing his skin to turn blood red.
If an ordinary cultivator were to encounter such a situation, they would definitely stop cultivating and slowly digest what they had gained. When it came to cultivation, one should not be arrogant or impatient.
However, Yang Kai didn’t have any time to waste. As soon as he arrived at the Divine Weapon World, he had stirred up trouble. Counting the time, the revenge from Heavenly Net Residence would soon arrive. If he didn’t quickly increase his strength, he wouldn’t be able to resist this disaster.
What’s more, he wanted to use this kind of cultivation to increase his own limits.
Continuously refining the Spirit Jade’s Spiritual Energy, Yang Kai’s body became like a bottomless pit, his clothes fluttering even though there was no wind, and the entire cave mansion began to emit faint sounds.
Blood flowed out from his pores and quickly dyed his clothes red, but Yang Kai didn’t care about this and continued to crazily refine the white jade. As for his injuries, he would use the Dragon Vein’s power to heal them.
Finally, at some point, Yang Kai suddenly felt his body lighten, as if a layer of obstruction had been broken through, and the swelling power in his body was instantly relieved.
Sixth Order Mortal Rank!
