MARTIAL PEAK 5041


As time passed, Yang Kai basically maintained the speed at which he refined a Seventh Grade Resource every half a year, and he didn’t try to cultivate behind closed doors blindly.


Such cultivation was extremely boring. If one’s cultivation wasn’t high enough, maintaining such a state for a long time would inevitably cause them to become restless.


Although this kind of situation wouldn’t occur to Yang Kai, he was still trying his best to avoid it. Basically, after refining a set of seventh grade resources, he would come out and walk around.


The shortest would be three to five days, while the longest would be ten days or half a month. Relaxing his mood and relaxing his muscles before going into seclusion would greatly improve his cultivation efficiency.


When he had free time, he took a trip to War Preparation Palace and handed over all the Fifth Grade and Sixth Grade resources he had, exchanging them for battle merits and all his battle merits for the Five Elements resources of Seventh Grade.


These Fifth Grade and Sixth Grade resources had all been brought over from the 3000 Worlds, originally for his own cultivation. Now, his best cultivation method was to refine Seventh Grade resources, so these Fifth Grade and Sixth Grade materials weren’t worth much to him. Seventh Grade was the best choice.


A Seventh Grade's Five Elements Resource Exchange was unexpectedly cheap and affordable.


Basically, after handing over two sets of Sixth Grade Five Elements resources, one could exchange for a set of Seventh Grade resources. The exchange rate was two to one.


In the 3000 Worlds, the value of each one rank higher resource was ten times higher, but in the Blue Sky Pass, it was only twice.


On one hand, the Mountain Passes had the intention to take care of these Black Ink Clan soldiers, so it was naturally impossible for them to calculate the value of the resources of the various grades according to the ratio of the 3000 worlds. On the other hand, the consumption of Seventh Grade resources wasn’t great, so Blue Sky Pass had accumulated a massive amount of Seventh Grade resources over the years, and even an Eighth Grade was abundant.


There were many High Rank Open Heaven masters in the pass, and there were dozens of Eighth Order Garrison Chiefs. However, when they were cultivating, they wouldn’t be refining the resources of Seventh Grade extravagantly like Yang Kai. In the end, it was all because of the lack of a High Rank Yin-Yang Attribute. Without a Seventh Grade and Eighth Grade Yin-Yang Attribute Resources, even if they had a lot of the Five Elements Resources, they wouldn’t dare to casually refine it, lest their Small Universe's power become imbalance.


Now, outside Blue Sky Pass, with the mining of these Universe Worlds, even more Seventh and Eighth Grade resources had been unearthed, but these resources were mostly used for Artifact Refining and Formation, not for cultivation.


As such, Yang Kai had gained a great advantage.


The resources he possessed were more than enough for him to break through to the Eighth Order, even having a surplus.


He had also taken some time to pay a visit to the Pill Hall to inquire about the situation of the Expelling Black Ink Pill, but unfortunately, he hadn’t been able to see Zhu Geming and Zhou Fang, he had only met Tang Qun.


According to Tang Qun, ever since Yang Kai left that day, the two Grandmasters had been focused on experimenting the recipe of the Expelling Black Ink Pill to complete it. Now that they had consumed countless herbs, they finally had some clues.


However, if they wanted to get the Expelling Black Ink Pill out, they would need to put in some effort. On the other hand, the Lightless Grass and Azure Feather Profound Vine were already growing more vigorously in the medicine garden. Once the Expelling Black Ink Pill really appeared, it would definitely be able to meet the requirements for Pill Refining.


On this day, Yang Kai refined yet another set of seventh grade resources and walked out of the secret room.


Feng Ying was already waiting outside the door. Hearing the sound of the door opening, Feng Ying turned her head and smiled, “Junior Brother’s cultivation is indeed very orderly.”


For the past two years, Yang Kai would come out of seclusion every half a year, and Feng Ying had also calculated that he would come out of seclusion soon, so she had waited here.


“Secluded cultivation is boring, so I came out to relax,” Yang Kai stretched his muscles, “Does Senior Sister need something?”


Feng Ying had deliberately waited here, obviously looking for him for something.


“Martial Uncle Zhong Liang has ordered you to meet him immediately after coming out of seclusion,” Feng Ying’s expression became solemn.


Yang Kai also straightened his face and asked, “What happened recently?”


Feng Ying shook her head, “There is nothing happening in the pass. Martial Uncle's tone revealed that this matter concerns the World Spring.”


Yang Kai immediately understood.


After refining and fusing with the World Tree, Yang Kai had told the four Regiment Commanders of Blue Sky Pass that he was willing to offer up the World Spring in his Small Universe. After all, the World Tree Subtree also had the ability to seal the Small Universe, and it was not inferior to the World Spring. Although he had not verified it, Yang Kai felt that even without the World Spring, the Ink Force would not be able to corrode his body.


At the time, Zhong Liang and the others had said that this matter was not urgent. After all, even if he was willing to offer up the World Spring, they would still need to carefully discuss who would take it.


Yang Kai also didn’t expect that this wait would last for two years. It seemed that the several Regiment Commanders were extremely cautious about this matter.


“I’ll head over now,” Yang Kai said before soaring into the sky and heading straight for the Western Army Military Office.


When they arrived, they asked someone to inform them and waited for a moment before Zhong Liang summoned them.


Entering the main hall, Yang Kai saw Zhong Liang discussing some matters with a Seventh Order. After the Seventh Order master left, Yang Kai stepped forward and cupped his fists, “Greetings, Sir!”


Zhong Liang nodded slightly and stood up, “About why I call you here, did Feng Ying tell you?”


Yang Kai nodded and said, “Senior Sister has already said that Sir have already decided who to take over?”


Zhong Liang said, “I’m sure, but before that, this King must remind you that if you offer up the World Spring, you will have to give up a part of your Small Universe. At that time, your Small Universe will definitely suffer some damage. Although the Profound Female Spirit Fruit can repair it, it’s effect is not big. However, if you lose your ability to resist the corrosion of the Ink Force, you will have to obediently stay in the pass and not run about.”


Yang Kai respectfully replied, “Disciple naturally knows this.”


Zhong Liang looked at him with a gentle gaze filled with praise, “You’re quite thoughtful.”


No one except Yang Kai knew what kind of effects the World Tree Subtree had, so even if he didn’t offer up the World Spring, no one would say anything. However, after he had integrated with the World Tree Subtree, he had immediately brought up this matter, showing that he was a person who knew how to repay kindness. An Eighth Order Open Heaven with Universe Four Pillars would definitely be able to display a strength far greater than usual on the battlefield. After all, he no longer needed to divert his attention to resist the erosion of the Ink Force.


“Follow me,” Zhong Liang waved his hand and led the way out of the hall.


Yang Kai followed.


Soon, the two of them left Blue Sky Pass and arrived in the void outside.


Somewhere in the void, a figure stood, obviously waiting after receiving Zhong Liang’s message.


Yang Kai recognized the figure at a glance and immediately understood, “The one who took over the World Spring is Sir Ding Yao?”


The figure waiting here was none other than the Eastern Army Regiment Commander, Ding Yao.


Zhong Liang nodded, “That’s right, after the Old Ancestor, this old bastard’s strength is the strongest, it’s best if he takes over.”


The corners of Yang Kai’s mouth twitched. Zhong Liang dared to call Ding Yao old bastard, but he can't be disrespectful.


However, the situation was within his expectations.


The Human Race didn’t have many Universe Four Pillars, but there were still some, all of them under the control of an Eighth Order Open Heaven.


Ninth Order Old Ancestors didn’t need the Universe Four Pillars. Their strength was exquisite and their cultivation was profound, so they didn’t need to worry about being corroded by the Ink Force. Even if the Seventh Order Open Heaven has the World Spring, they may not be able to keep it safe. This was also the reason why Zhong Liang had resisted Yang Kai’s idea of going into battle. Yang Kai’s responsibility was too great, and his strength wasn’t enough. If something were to happen to him, he wouldn’t be able to explain himself to the Old Ancestor.


There was no need for the Ninth Order to use it, a Seventh Order wasn’t strong enough to keep it safe, and an Eighth Order was the best to take it over.


Yang Kai had originally thought that one of the four Regiment Commanders would be the one to take over the World Spring, but now it seemed that he was right.


When he got close, Ding Yao looked at Yang Kai and asked, “Once you draw your bow, there will be no turning back. It’s not too late for you to regret now.”


Yang Kai grinned, “Since I’ve already decided, there’s no reason to change it.”


Ding Yao nodded slightly, “Then I won’t try to persuade you.”


Zhong Liang said, “If you’re ready, let’s begin, but Yang Kai, try to minimize your losses.”


“I understand,” Yang Kai nodded and closed his eyes.


As his Divine Sense surged, the World Force around him fluctuated wildly, and his Small Universe’s body began to hum. Under his control, the originally intact Small Universe suddenly began to shake, and soon after, the world began to collapse.


Yang Kai’s eyes instantly went wide as he let out a low roar.


The pain of his soul being torn apart made him tremble involuntarily.


Yang Kai had never known that cutting off his own Small Universe would be so painful. Before he brought out the Purification Light, on the battlefield between the two races, the Human Race’s soldiers had no choice but to cut off their Small Universe, they have to endure this pain and fight to the death with the Black Ink Clan. What kind of cruel experience was this?


It wasn’t difficult for Yang Kai to part with his own Small Universe, he just needed to part with it. The difficult part was that Yang Kai needed to completely suppress the World Spring’s aura in this territory.


Although he had given it his all, in the end, he had still given up a large territory.


When the Small Universe’s gate opened, a large piece of land with a radius of more than ten acres appeared in the void, with a clear spring at its center.


When this territory appeared, under the influence of the World Spring’s suppression, the surrounding space seemed to freeze.


Ding Yao had been waiting for this moment. He stretched out his hand and grabbed towards the severed territory. As the World Force surged, the territory instantly disappeared into his body.


In the next moment, both Yang Kai and Ding Yao quickly sat down cross-legged.


Zhong Liang quickly handed Yang Kai a prepared Profound Female Spirit Fruit and said, “Quickly eat this fruit.”


Although taking it a little later wouldn’t have any effect, he was still afraid that Yang Kai’s foundation would be damaged.


The pain on Yang Kai’s face was obvious, and cold sweat dripped down his forehead as he reached out to take the Profound Female Spirit Fruit from Zhong Liang. Just as he was about to swallow it, he suddenly frowned and froze.


Seeing this, Zhong Liang became worried, “What’s wrong? Is there something wrong?”


Yang Kai slowly shook his head but didn’t immediately answer. Instead, he immersed himself in examining his Small Universe.


Under his attention, the originally smooth and flawless Small Universe was now obviously damaged, and what was missing was a portion of the territory he cut off.
