Chapter 108: The Birth of a Mind Devouring Bug
A Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator with an Earth level cultivation technique, it was indeed one of a kind in Spirit Peak City.
Not many in the entire Spirit Peak City had the luxury of training in an Earth level cultivation technique. For someone in Wei Suo’s generation, only the most elite disciples in the Heaven’s First Sect could train in it, and had trained to Heavenly Circuit stage level 1.
In actual fact, because a Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator had successfully formed a heavenly circuit for the 6 Divine Seas, the true energy would constantly flow and nourish the cultivator’s body.
Hence, when compared to a Divine Sea stage, a Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator would have at least 30-40 years more of longevity.
For an average Divine Sea stage cultivator, without any spirit medicine, their longevity would only be up to a hundred years. But after breaking through to the Heavenly Circuit stage, even for one that stayed at level 1, he would have at least 130 years of longevity.
After a sigh, Wei Suo calmed his heart as he entered into the room to test his current strength. Trying to get a sense on the difference of an Earth level Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator.
6 regiments of purplish glow formed around his body. It didn’t make a single sound, yet it released a terribly powerful aura of an exploding sensation.
This was the awe-inspiring might of a Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator who had connected his Divine Seas. The spirit energy was naturally thriving. As long as one did not suppress his True Energy purposefully, then even a cultivator without an Aura Determining technique would be able to distinctly tell the difference of a Heavenly Circuit stage aura.
That was why that tanned attendant could instantly detect Wei Suo when he entered the Ninepeaks palace, and had a drastic change of expression, instantly revering Wei Suo.
“An Earth level cultivation is indeed amazing. Haha, other ordinary Heavenly Circuit stage cultivators are worth fart as compared to my Divine Sea.”
Gazing with a pleased expression at his 6 Divine Seas, Wei Suo suddenly noticed his divine sense changing.
(TN: I’m changing psyche/mental awareness to divine sense)
(Long overdue lol)
It had become sharper and clearer.
As expected from the written records. When a Divine Sea stage level 5 broke through to the Heavenly Circuit stage, his divine sense would raise by two folds!
When Wei Suo was a Divine Sea stage level 5 cultivator, his divine sense could only encompass around 60 metres. But now, he was able to encompass roughly a 120 metre radius. Which means that any kind of special aura from skill techniques or magic treasures could not escape him.
With a powerful divine sense, one can discover his enemies earlier and react faster. Moreover with a faster reaction, executing one’s true energy would be more effective.
If a Divine Sea stage cultivator and a Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator discovered each other at the same time; the first person that releases a skill would surely be the Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator. Moreover, even if the distance was far, the skills and artifact released by a Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator would be more accurate and precise.
“This is extremely essential to survive.”
Wei Suo gasped. This was because many Divine Sea stage level 1 or 2 cultivators had lost their lives to demonic beasts even before they had discovered their presence.
Wei Suo executed his Cyan-water blade.
Just a mere ordinary Cyan-water blade skill caused him great joy.
Previously, whenever Wei Suo released a Cyan-water blade, it would form a ripple of sleek cyan blade, carrying splashes of water. Yet when he released it now, a solid metallic sharp cyan blade slashed out, crashing against the Thousand Refinement Silver before a splash appeared.
Just observing the scar on the Thousand Refinement Silver, indeed this Cyan-water blade was on a whole new level.
When he broke through from Divine Sea stage level 4 to 5, his True Energy had been doubled. After breaking through to the Heavenly Circuit stage now, his True Energy similarly doubled.
When he exhibited his Purple Mystic True technique energy out, it was previously a fuzzy purple cloud. Yet right now, it was a transparent purple liquid. This was the outcome of a concentrated and condensed True Energy.
Hence, even though his True Energy had only doubled; whenever he released a skill, its might would be simply incomparable. Moreover, due to the concentration of his True Energy, in the past if he released 20 skills before exhausting his true energy, now he wasn’t just able to release 40 skills. In fact, he would be able to at least release 50 skill strikes.
A larger divine sense, rapid skill execution, and a formidable condensed True Energy. This was the vast difference of a Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator.
As for the higher levels of Thought Division stage and Golden pellet stage, it was simply comparing the heavens and the earth to the Heavenly Circuit stage.
In the Thought Division stage, not only will the true energy be condensed again, its power alone could already exceed several skill techniques. Moreover, one could divide their divine sense and control two artifacts at once. If a Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator challenged a Thought Division stage one, it would be akin to challenging two people.
As for the Golden Pellet stage, the True Energy would condense into a Golden Pellet. Not only will it possess divine thought channels of Thought Division, a Golden Pellet would be able to be displayed out like a demonic pellet to confront the enemy. Its might was truly terrifying.
An ordinary Divine Sea stage cultivator would have a hundred years longevity, a hundred and forty at Heavenly Circuit stage. As for the Thought Division stage, it would be two hundred years of longevity, and by the Golden Pellet stage, the longevity will be beyond 260 years.
The longer the longevity, the more chance to acquire skill techniques and magic treasures. Hence, a low level cultivator would be completely unable to slay a high level cultivator. A low level cultivator would naturally hold great respect for higher level cultivators. Wei Suo, a mere level 4-5 Divine Sea stage cultivator, was able to slay a Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator; it was due to the green gowned old man, and a huge portion also attributed to luck.
Wei Suo himself was adamantly clear on this point. Hence, he was bent on spending spiritual stones in order to raise his cultivation.
Wei Suo, according to logic, had to travel out of Spirit peak city to earn spiritual stones. The stronger the cultivation, the more spiritual stones he required. Hence, the rate of spending spiritual stones would become increasingly shocking.
Moreover, Wei Suo was already a level 1 Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator. He was now able to execute the [Chaotic Dance of the Golden Serpent] of the [Golden Serpent Thunder technique], as well as the [Rock Golem] of the [Earth God True Technique].
A skill technique like the [Rock Golem], once executed it was akin to having another helper that didn’t require control. It was extremely helpful. As for the [Chaotic Dance of the Golden Serpent], it can envelop a radius of 30 metres with a paralysing wave. This skill was definitely an extremely useful one in hunting low level demonic beasts.
In the following days, Wei Suo didn’t leave the city and didn’t try to comprehend the two skill techniques. Instead, he walked into the Earth Furnace room, wholeheartedly focusing on refining the Yellow-elemental essence in order to prepare for his Demon Nurturing liquid.
Wei Suo could sense clearly, the Mind Devouring Bug he was controlling was finally about to be birthed!
After an anxious and nervous 3 days of wait, in the quietness of his room, a gentle sound of a shell cracking could be heard.
Placed on the Silverthread grass, cracks formed on the tip of the egg first before slitting downwards.
“No way? This is considered a level 5 demonic beast?”
After a long wait, Wei Suo didn’t know whether to laugh or cry after looking at the struggling Mind Devouring Bug.
A Mind Devouring Bug that was just birthed wasn’t able to turn invisible. It appeared soft and sticky like a pile of slugs. Moreover, it was evident this Mind Devouring Bug was weak, only the size of two snails.
If Wei Suo was to trample over it, it would instantly be squashed. It was outrageously different from the image Wei Suo had in mind.
Shaking his head helplessly, Wei Suo then poured the liquid of Yellow-elemental essence into a jade basin beside the larva of this Mind Devouring bug.
Under the guidance of the old man, the concocted Yellow-elemental essence liquid looked like ordinary yellow wine, but it emitted an aroma of thick cinnamon. The little feeble Mind Devouring bug larva twitched as it crawled towards the liquid, and finally splashed inside the jade basin.
Wei Suo was actually a little worried this feeble looking larva was going to drown inside the Yellow-elemental essence liquid. But after the larva curled up like a ball inside the liquid, with its tiny suckers extended out to absorb the liquid, Wei Suo finally relaxed.
Wei Suo observed it motionlessly, waiting with expectancy for this larva to morph.
After half an hour, he was utterly depressed. This Mind Devouring bug after having its fill, directly fell asleep within the Yellow-elemental essence liquid.
As he gazed on hopelessly, he hurriedly transmitted a command through the Spirit Controlling technique to the larva; it was not allowed to leave this jade basin until it finished absorbing all the yellow-elemental essence liquid. He then organized himself and left the Heaven Grade residence. He then headed for the Golden Jade Pavilion that he hadn’t gone to for a long while.
In his hands, there was still another Elder Scarlet Beetle that he had to settle.
According to hidden logic of not storing all the eggs in one basket; the Elder Scarlet Beetle that Wei Suo was prepared to forge into artifacts was not known by the Ninepeaks palace. Instead, it was to be handed to Shopkeeper Tian of the Golden Jade pavilion to forge.
Meanwhile, a black robed elderly man walked into Jia Ya’s room. He was an attendant of the Precious Treasure Pavilion, his appearance indicated his cautiousness and prudence, yet he emitted an amiable housekeeper aura.
