MARTIAL PEAK 4523


“Yang Kai?” The woman’s beautiful brow wrinkled as she suddenly realized, “You’re that new disciple!”


“Yes!” Yang Kai nodded seriously.


The woman glanced at him from head to toe, her eyes pausing briefly on the golden token hanging from Yang Kai’s waist before snorting lightly, “The Sect Master thinks highly of you, even giving you the Elder Token.”


She then beckoned to Yang Kai, “Come down first.”


Yang Kai jumped down and stood respectfully in front of her. Since this woman also had an Elder Token, she was undoubtedly an Elder of Profound Pill Sect, and as an Elder of Profound Pill Sect, she is a Spirit Pill Master and a Spirit Rank cultivator.


The woman glared at him, “Why are you so high up there?”


Yang Kai casually said, “Sect Master ordered me to come here when I have time to comprehend the mysteries of the Medicine King Cauldron. Disciple thought that the closer I got to this Divine Weapon, the easier it would be for me to discover something, so I decided to stand close to it. If anything is wrong, I ask Martial Aunt to punish me.”


The woman said angrily, “The ignorant are fearless, how can a Divine Weapon be something you can casually touch? Fortunately, I discovered it early. If I had been a moment later, I’m afraid I would have already collected your corpse.”


Yang Kai was shocked, “It’s that serious?”


The woman said, “The Ten Divine Weapons represent the ultimate Dao of Heaven and Earth in this world. Since ancient times, those who obtain these Divine Weapons are all blessed with great destiny, so how can anyone touch them?”


Although Yang Kai didn’t think it was as serious as she said, he still pretended to be sweating, “Many thanks for Martial Aunt’s advice.”


The woman’s expression relaxed slightly as she swept her eyes over him, “Then what did you comprehend just now?”


“A little, but it’s quite vague. I’ll need more time to comprehend it.”


The woman gently nodded, “I’ve heard about your situation. Since you have a Fate with the Medicine King Cauldron, don’t let down Sect Master’s expectations of you, but remember, in the future, don’t be greedy and act rashly, otherwise, if something goes wrong, no one can save you.”


“Yes!” Yang Kai replied, feeling a bit strange. This woman seemed to care about him a bit, but he didn’t know if it was just his imagination.


“Did Martial Aunt come here to comprehend the mysteries of the Medicine King Cauldron?” Yang Kai asked casually.


The woman let out a soft sigh as her chest heaved up and down, “That’s right, when we old fogies have time, we’ll come and take a look to see if we can obtain some inspiration from this place. It’s not so easy to advance to the Spirit Pill Master level… Unfortunately, it's useless for us old fogies, but you, little brat, are actually able to see through some of it's mysteries.”


“Disciple was just lucky. Moreover, Martial Aunt is not old and is in her prime.”


The woman looked at him in surprise and immediately began to laugh. After a while, she stopped laughing and snorted lightly, “You’re as glib as that old fart, no wonder he accepted you as his disciple! Let me ask you, is that old fart alright?”


Yang Kai was stunned for a moment before he realized that the person she was talking about should be his 'master'. From her expression and tone, it seemed she had some kind of inexplicable relationship with his fake 'Master', so he immediately understood why she was so concerned about him.


“When Master taught Disciple, Disciple was still young and couldn’t remember many things, but at that time, Master was quite good, especially when Disciple made a mistake and he hit Disciple’s butt!”


The woman was stunned for a moment before smiling happily, “His temper really isn’t good, and his vision is high. At that time, you were still young, so if you couldn’t meet his requirements, of course he would beat you up. If he knew of your current achievements, he would definitely be proud.”


She asked Yang Kai a few more questions, Yang Kai either made up some nonsense or said he didn’t remember anything, but he didn’t reveal any flaws. No matter how small the matter was, the woman listened with great interest.


After a while, the woman waved her hand and said, “It seems you’re tired, you should go back and rest early. If you have any trouble, come to Thousand Gathering Peak and find me. I usually live there.”


“Many thanks, Martial Aunt. Disciple will take his leave!”


Returning to Moon Locking Peak, Yang Kai went to ask Yang Huai and found out that the Thousand Gathering Peak’s Peak Master was an Elder named Lan Yin. It should be the woman he had encountered in the forbidden area.


Yang Kai had originally wanted to inquire more about his fake 'master', but unfortunately, Yang Huai had lived in the Blood Servant Camp since he was a child, so he only knew that there is such a person in the Profound Pill Sect.


In fact, after Yang Kai entered the Profound Pill Sect, he had begun to intentionally or unintentionally investigate information about his fake 'master'. After all, he had joined the Profound Pill Sect as a personal disciple, so there was no harm in learning more about him.


However, there were no records of this person in the Ancient Book Pavilion, so it wasn’t convenient for Yang Kai to inquire too much about him to avoid exposing any flaws, so he didn’t know much about his fake master.


The following days were uneventful. While Yang Kai is still doing Pill Refining for the Asking Pill Pavilion and earning the cultivation resources he needed, he would occasionally travel back and forth to the forbidden area to try and refine the Medicine King Cauldron.


He didn’t know if anyone in the Profound Pill Sect had tried to refine this Divine Weapon, but he was certain that they had. Who wouldn’t be tempted after such Divine Weapon was put in the forbidden area, who would know?


Most likely, from the Sect Master Baili Yunsang to the Elders, all of them had tried to refine it, but it was unlikely they had succeeded.


Because Yang Kai hadn’t been able to find any traces left behind by others from the Medicine King Cauldron, he was able to make some small progress every time he went there.


Refining this Medicine King Cauldron was an extremely difficult task, and it was not something that could be accomplished in a short time.


As a large number of resources were consumed, his cultivation steadily rose.


Yang Kai also threw out some pill recipe and Pill Refining insights that didn’t belong to the Divine Weapon World. Each time he did so, he would receive a large number of contribution points, and the things he threw out made the upper echelons of Profound Pill Sect even more fascinated.


He had already obtained the recipe for the Hundred Revolutions Heartless Pill, and his cultivation had slowly risen to the Ninth Order Heaven Rank, so it wouldn’t be long before he was ready to break through to the Spirit Rank.


Yang Kai didn’t plan to refine the Hundred Revolutions Heartless Pill himself. He had a lot of contribution points, so he could easily exchange them for a Hundred Revolutions Heartless Pill from the Profound Pill Sect.


But now, it had only been two years since he joined the Profound Pill Sect.


The terrifying nature of the Heaven Devouring Battle Law was apparent. If he had not chosen to cultivate this Heaven Devouring Battle Law in the Divine Weapon World, it would have been impossible for him to have grown so much in such a short time.


This Heaven Defying Evil Art greatly shortened Yang Kai’s cultivation time, but the drawbacks it brought were slowly revealed.


Yang Kai’s cultivation had now reached the Ninth Order Heaven Rank and was only a step away from breaking through to the Spirit Rank. At the same time, the Dragon Vein’s power had also been greatly stimulated and his physical strength had reached an astonishing level.


Originally, Yang Kai had thought that his Dragon Vein’s power could negate the many hidden dangers brought about by cultivating the Heaven Devouring Battle Law, but in fact, it was only possible in the early stages of cultivation. Yang Kai didn’t feel anything wrong with it, so he boldly cultivated the Heaven Devouring Battle Law.


However, as more resources were consumed, the Dragon Vein’s power became somewhat difficult to sustain it.


Yang Kai could feel that some of the mixed energies he had absorbed during his cultivation were subtly affecting his body and temperament. The most obvious thing was that he felt that his temperament was a bit more violent than before, and occasionally he would feel some unknown anger.


This was not a good sign. One had to know that when it came to cultivation, one should not be arrogant or impetuous. If one’s temperament suddenly became chaotic at a critical moment, it was highly likely they would suffer from qi deviation.


But now that things had come to this point, Yang Kai had no way to resolve this issue, so he could only temporarily stop cultivating and slowly stimulate the power of his Dragon Vein in an attempt to use it to suppress the Heaven Devouring Battle Law’s drawbacks.


However, this way, he could confirm that the Heaven Devouring Battle Law was not something that could be casually cultivated, and the hidden dangers it brought were simply impossible to guard against.


Fortunately, it was still early and he had only been in the Divine Weapon World for a few years, so there was still a lot of time before the next Divine Weapon competition. Moreover, he was not in his true body, so even if there were any hidden dangers, it would not affect him.


Because he had the task of comprehending the mysteries of the Medicine King Cauldron, Yang Kai’s rapid advancement in cultivation was also a good explanation. The pill recipe he had given out had several types of pills that could assist cultivation and even directly increase cultivation.


These pill recipes had long been used in the Blood Servant Camp and had also proven their efficacies. As long as one had enough cultivation resources, it wouldn’t be difficult to increase their cultivation.


However, up until now, no one had paid too much attention to his cultivation. After all, to an Alchemist, cultivation was only an asset to assist them in Pill Refining.


Another year passed.


In the past year, Yang Kai’s cultivation hadn’t grown much and was still stuck at the Ninth Order Heaven Rank. Because he had already noticed the drawbacks of cultivating the Heaven Devouring Battle Law, he had been trying to stimulate the power of his Dragon Vein in order to eliminate any hidden dangers.


However, even though he had tried everything he could to strengthen the Dragon Vein’s power, the subtle hidden dangers brought about by the Heaven Devouring Battle Law were endless. These small hidden dangers were like a cancer that grew on his body, and no matter how he tried, he couldn’t dig them out completely, making him feel helpless.


The power of the Heaven Devouring Battle Law was also reflected in this.


Yang Kai really couldn’t figure out how Wu Kuang had managed to cultivate it. Logically speaking, with the Heaven Devouring Battle Law as the foundation, he should have long since lost his mind, but this guy was still alive and kicking, and had even managed to sneak into the Myriad Demons Heaven!


Thinking about it for a moment, Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling that this guy was truly a genius.


On the other hand, Hua Rong and Yang Huai had grown greatly!


Needless to say about Hua Rong, when she followed Yang Kai, she was already a Sixth Order Heaven Rank master. With such a cultivation at such a young age, her aptitude was naturally outstanding. After following Yang Kai, she had unlimited access to all kinds of cultivation resources and pills, and had broken through half a year ago to become a genuine Spirit Rank master.


Although Yang Huai’s starting point was low, the Flawless Tyrant Body Secret Art given to him by Yang Kai was extremely compatible with him. Over the past few years, Yang Huai had also reached the Ninth Order Heaven Rank, and just like Yang Kai, he could break through to the Spirit Rank at any time.


However, Yang Kai didn’t allow him to break through so quickly, instead allowing him to temper himself at the Heaven Rank to stabilize his foundation.
