With a cultivation technique like Heaven Devouring Battle Law, Yang Kai had already broken through to the Ninth Order Earth Rank a month ago and was only a step away from the Heaven Rank, but after a month, he had still been unable to break through.
It wasn’t that he didn’t have enough cultivation resources, after absorbing hundreds or thousands of pieces of black jade every day and accumulating them for an entire month, the amount of sand he had accumulated to form a pagoda was extremely terrifying. It should have been enough to satisfy his need for a breakthrough long ago.
It wasn’t that his aptitude wasn’t good enough. The Divine Weapon World had given him an identity that allowed him to become a cultivator, but Yang Kai himself was a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, so his aptitude simply couldn’t limit his speed.
In the end, he was lacking a medicine pill.
In the Divine Weapon World, as long as one was diligent enough and had enough cultivation resources, they could basically break through to the Earth Rank.
However, it was not so easy to break through from the Earth Rank to the Heaven Rank.
There had to be a kind of pill called the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill. Without this pill, no matter how talented one was, no matter how abundant their cultivation resources were, it would be useless.
Yang Kai originally wanted to use his many years of cultivation experience to break through this shackle, but after a month of hard work, he discovered that it was completely futile!
His own cultivation seemed to have been locked down by an invisible shackle that seemed to contain the aura of the Heavenly Dao Law.
It could be said that this Divine Weapon World was the one preventing him from breaking through to the Heaven Rank! Unless he had the strength to resist the entire Divine Weapon World, it was impossible for him to break this shackle.
Advancing from the Earth Rank to the Heaven Rank required the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill, while advancing from the Heaven Rank to the Spirit Rank required Hundred Revolutions Heartless Pill! The former required a Heaven Rank Alchemist to refine, while the latter required a Spirit Rank Alchemist. The Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill is a Heaven Rank pill, while the Hundred Revolutions Heartless Pill is a Spirit Pill!
Through the memories given to him by the Divine Weapon World, Yang Kai already knew that in this damned place, the status of Alchemists was very high, higher than any world he had ever known.
Because whether it was the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill or the Hundred Revolutions Heartless Pill, both required Alchemists to refine. It could be said that the path of a cultivator’s advancement was often determined by a small pill!
It was somewhat unbelievable.
In the outside world, although there were many pills that could assist in one’s breakthrough and increase the success rate, it wasn’t impossible without it. Even if there weren’t any, a cultivator could still break through with their own efforts.
However, in the Divine Weapon World, it was impossible! The Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill and Hundred Revolutions Heartless Pill blocked the path of a peak Earth Rank and Heaven Rank cultivator.
Because of this, the status of Alchemists was unparalleled, and many masters were even willing to serve as guards for Alchemists of the same level as them.
Such things were difficult to understand in the outside world, but in the Divine Weapon World, they were quite common.
Yang Kai’s attainments in the Dao of Alchemy were extremely profound, and the Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill used by the Void Land’s disciples to break through to Open Heaven was his own. Of course, this matter was now handed over to Little Senior Sister Xia Ningchang and Wondrous Pill Great Emperor.
With his attainments in Alchemy, refining a Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill was naturally not an issue. If not for the limitations of his cultivation, refining the Hundred Revolutions Heartless Pill would also not have been a problem.
The key point is… there was no pill recipe!
This was an awkward and realistic problem.
In the entire Divine Weapon World, the Void Spirit Sword Sect was nothing more than an inferior Sect. Although it had once been glorious thousands of years ago, it had long since declined. The Sect didn’t even have its own Alchemist, let alone all kinds of rare pill recipe.
Regardless of whether it was the Ten or Hundred Revolutions Heartless Pill, it is extremely precious and would never be casually passed down to outsiders. Each Alchemist had a variety of pill recipes, and each of them had their own recipe and configuration. However, no matter which Alchemist refined the Heartless Pills, they all had the effect of helping a cultivator break through.
However, because of the subtle differences between the refining method and materials, the effects were somewhat different.
If Yang Kai wanted the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill, other than refining it himself, he would spend a lot of money to purchase it.
However, in this world, there were countless cultivators who wanted to break through to the Heaven Rank, including the Tiger’s Roar Sect’s Sect Master Zhuang Juhe, as well as the former Heavenly Net Residence's Palace Master Shu Wancheng and Great Elder Li Zhengqing. All of them had been stuck at the peak Earth Rank because they didn’t have a Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill.
The two of them had spent a great deal of money to invite these Heaven Pill Master to refine the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill, but the other party’s Pill Refining schedule was filled to the brim. The two of them had given out great gifts, these Heaven Pill Master had accepted them without any hesitation. However, if they wanted the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill, they would have to wait!
Zhuang Juhe would have to wait four years before that Heaven Pill Master would be able to help him refine the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill. Shu Wancheng’s situation was even worse, he would have to wait ten years!
How could Yang Kai wait so long? What’s more, a conservative estimate was that he would have to spend another hundred years in the Divine Weapon World. It would be too tiring to rely on himself for such a long time, so he needed to gather some people he could use. An Earth Rank cultivation was too low, and a Heaven Rank is barely enough. Without the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill as temptation, who would be willing to work for him?
After thinking about it for a while, he decided that it would be safer to obtain a pill recipe. As long as he could refine the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill, whether it was a cultivation resource or a Heaven Rank subordinate, he would be able to easily obtain it.
However, because this Divine Weapon World’s Alchemist had a high status and every Alchemist had a large number of guards around them, Yang Kai couldn’t act rashly and could only think of other methods.
This Gao Xinpeng is the Heaven Pill Master who had accepted Zhuang Juhe’s gift and was able to refine pills for him four years later. According to Zhuang Juhe, the force he belonged to was a Sect called Profound Pill Sect. This Sect’s foundation was Alchemy, and it had been passed down for countless years. There were many masters in this Sect, many Heaven Rank masters, and many Spirit Rank masters.
And now, this Profound Pill Sect was one of the top ten Sects in the entire Divine Weapon World. The reason for this was because this generation’s Sect Master had obtained one of the top ten Divine Weapon, the Medicine King Cauldron!
Originally, in the Divine Weapon World, there were a few Alchemy Sects that could compete with the Profound Pill Sect, but after the Medicine King Cauldron fell into the Profound Pill Sect, the Profound Pill Sect became a top Sect.
Within a hundred years, with the Medicine King Cauldron suppressing Profound Pill Sect’s destiny, the current Profound Pill Sect could be said to be like the sun in the midday sky!
With a colossus like Profound Pill Sect backing him, and with Gao Xinpeng being a Heaven Pill Master, it could be said that his status was extremely high, so Shi Minghui couldn’t help feeling somewhat uneasy about Yang Kai seeking out this Gao Xinpeng.
However, since Yang Kai had already made his decision, he couldn’t stop him.
Three days later, the three horses departed from the Void Spirit Sword Sect and headed straight for Heavenly Martial City.
In addition to Shi Minghui, there was also a female Elder from Tiger’s Roar Sect called Du Youyou. It was unknown what Zhuang Juhe’s intentions were, but this Du Youyou’s face was filled with peach blossoms, her chest was high, her waist was soft, and her eyes were filled with sweetness.
Yang Kai didn’t mind. He had only asked Zhuang Juhe to arrange for someone to accompany him to Heavenly Martial City. Zhuang Juhe sent Du Youyou over was probably beacause he thought that women were easier to talk to.
Heavenly Martial City was not close from the Void Spirit Sword Sect, but it was not far either.
After travelling for more than three days, a massive city suddenly appeared in front of them.
Shi Minghui mounted his horse and said, “Sir, Heavenly Martial City is up ahead.”
Yang Kai looked up at the sky and nodded, “Let’s find a place to stay first.”
Shi Minghui quickly replied, “Rest assured, Sir, this subordinate has already made arrangements. My Heavenly Net Residence has a small business here.”
“That’s for the best,” Although Yang Kai was a little surprised that Heavenly Net Residence also had properties here, he didn’t ask any questions.
Not long after, the group of three entered the city. Under Shi Minghui’s lead, they soon arrived in front of a shop. Upon entering, the shopkeeper immediately welcomed them and arranged for them to rest in the inner courtyard.
Gao Xinpeng would arrive at Heavenly Martial City in about ten days, so Yang Kai wasn’t in a hurry. What he needed to consider now was how to meet with Gao Xinpeng and how to obtain the pill recipe for the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill from him.
According to the information he had gathered, Gao Xinpeng had come here to refine the life Elixir for Heavenly Martial City’s City Lord. After all, Heavenly Martial City’s City Lord had done him a great favor in the past. Today, Heavenly Martial City’s City Lord was old and weak, he didn’t have much time left, so he was here to repay this favor.
At that time, Gao Xinpeng would definitely be welcomed into the City Lord’s Mansion. The City Lord of this place was also a peak Heaven Rank master, and the City Lord’s Mansion was filled with powerful masters. Once he entered the City Lord’s Mansion, he wouldn’t have a chance to interact with them.
Perhaps… he could start with the City Lord of Heavenly Martial City and enter the City Lord Residence to wait for him!
After thinking about it for a while, Yang Kai gradually came up with a plan in his mind, and a knock came from the door.
Yang Kai raised his eyes and said, “Come in!”
With a creak, the door opened and Du Youyou, dressed in thin clothes, walked in carrying a tray with a few exquisite dishes and a jug of fine wine.
Yang Kai couldn’t help glancing at her.
The most important thing was that this woman was wearing very little. Not only was her clothes as thin as a veil, but her chest and thighs were also exposed to a large amount of snow white skin. Moreover, she seemed to have just taken a bath, and as soon as she walked in, she gave off a faint fragrance. Her hair was still wet, giving off a breathtaking feeling.
Seemingly noticing Yang Kai’s gaze, Du Youyou lowered her head slightly and smiled sweetly, “Sir, it’s time to eat!”
“En!” Yang Kai nodded lightly, “Put it down.”
Du Youyou put down the food and took out a few small dishes before personally pouring a glass of wine for Yang Kai before standing off to the side.
“There’s no need for you to serve me here, help me buy some things,” Yang Kai ordered.
“What does Sir want me to buy?”
“Get me a pen and paper first!”
Du Youyou nodded and turned around to leave.
Not long after, she took out a pen and paper, Yang Kai wrote down a few things, and handed them to her.
Du Youyou glanced at it and found that it was filled with the names of herbs, but she couldn’t understand them, so she bowed and said, “Then this mistress will go buy them now.”
On this trip, Yang Kai had brought out twenty percent of the Void Spirit Sword Sect’s savings over the past two months, nearly ten thousand pieces of black jade, just in case he needed to spend some money somewhere.
Now it seemed that this decision was wise.
