Chapter 150: Sitting enclosed for a month
The days flowed by. Wei Suo’s room retained a state of deathly silence.
Suddenly one day, gentle crackles resounded from within. Afterwards, the room plunged into tranquility once again.
For the following two days, if anyone snuck into his room, they would notice he was the same as former days. He still remained immobile in a meditative posture, as though he hadn’t moved one bit.
A regiment of red clouds in a chicken egg shape enshrouded him.
5-6 days later. This dense egg of red clouds slowly turned thin. Another two days passed. The red clouds had utterly vanished. Still wearing an ordinary cyan robe, Wei Suo suddenly opened his eyes and stood up……
Yet after standing, he didn’t walk immediately. Instead, he attempted to circulate his true energy, He could hear the rumbling flows of his true energy like a river. An indistinct projection of seven violet divine sea glows appeared on his body. Apart from them, there was a sliver of red, its shape glittering modestly like a root.
Fire Spirit Root!
A Fire Spirit Root cultivator. While he fully revolved his true energy, his unique bodily system and meridians would reveal the brilliance of his divine seas. Excluding that, was an additional root.
Red signified a Fire Spirit Root. Cyan signified a Wood Spirit Root, or Wind Spirit Root. Golden signified Golden Spirit Root or Thunder Spirit Root. Blue signified Water Spirit Root. Yellow signified Earth Spirit Root, while white signified Ice Spirit Root.
It was obvious, Wei Suo had officially cultivated a Fire Spirit Root, and transformed into a Fire Spirit Root cultivator with innate disposition for fire element cultivation and skill techniques! His cultivation speed would also be quicker than ordinary cultivators…….
In the cultivation world, a spirit root cultivator held a whole new level of respect. Those cultivators with spirit roots represented the glorious heights of future accomplishments.
Yet as he observed the radiating brilliance which indicated his status as a Fire Spirit Root cultivator, Wei Suo’s lips couldn’t help but curl into a bleak smile.
When both parents were cultivators, their child would have a greater innate talent for cultivation as compared to children of ordinary mortals. Facts verified this, as Wei Suo’s talent could be counted as pretty remarkable. After refining a single Earthflame Immortal Lotus petal, he had successfully cultivated a Fire Spirit Root.
Actually, refining an Earthflame Immortal Lotus wasn’t such an easy task.
Initially, he reckoned refining it would be the same as the Amethyst Fox rose, only requiring 5-6 days. Instead, once he started refining it, Wei Suo realized…..every ounce of medicinal energy he refined from the Earthflame Immortal Lotus, would discharge out astoundingly fiery energies as well. He had to supply his true energy to slowly guide them out of his body. Right from the start, Wei Suo needed 20 days just to completely refine a single Earthflame Immortal Lotus. Following that, he had to further carve out two fingernail-sized pieces, where he needed 7-8 days to refine them.
Therefore, his secluded meditation had only been for the sake of refining the Earthflame Immortal Lotus, but it took him roughly a month to do so. Fortunately, Wei Suo’s cultivation had reached Heavenly Circuit Stage level 2, and his Purple Mystic True Technique had risen to the low level Earth rank; where he had sufficient true energy to circulate. Otherwise, Wei Suo would have to pause every one to two days to replenish his true energy with Energy Recovery pellets. In that manner, he would probably require several months to refine it.
This depiction reflected the narration of mortal books. Immortals possessed divine powers while cultivation isn’t limited by time……..
Wei Suo smiled wryly as she he shook his head. Then, he retrieved a low grade spiritual stone and held it in his hand. After experimenting, he could sense that his absorption rate of spirit energy had quickened after becoming a Fire Spirit Root cultivator.
His brows hopped while his eyes flashed with joy. Indeed, depicted like the fables of the cultivation world, his cultivation of spirit energy had undergone a distinct improvement as compared to when he ate the stew of Twin-headed Canine. It was minimally a twenty percent increase.
This implied that a single spirit root cultivator when compared to an ordinary one, under the normal circumstances between both parties in terms of cultivation technique and what not……if one determined that an ordinary cultivator would require ten years to train to Divine Sea Stage level 3, then a single spirit root cultivator would merely require 8-9 years to reach the same stage…….if an ordinary cultivator required 30 years to attain Heavenly Circuit stage level 3, then a single spirit root cultivator would only need roughly 24 years to do so.
Furthermore, a dual spirit root, multiple spirit root cultivator, and even a heaven spirit root cultivator would train much faster than a single spirit cultivator.
Thus, Wei Suo’s anticipating of becoming a dual spirit root cultivator by cultivating his Ice Spirit Root out was doubled.
Within the entire Heavenly Profound Continent, the amount of dual spirit root cultivators was immensely rare and could probably be counted with two hands.
As he strolled out the doors of his room, he noticed it was dusk. There would still be a long period before the green gowned Old Man would resurface. Hence, he headed towards the room beside the Earth Furnace room, the one specially used for nurturing his Mind Devouring Bug.
Instantly, Wei Suo couldn’t help but smile bleakly. As per his expectation, due to the prolonged period of him refining the Earthflame Immortal Lotus, the two bowls of Demon Nurturing Liquid had turned crystal clear; completely devoid of a sliver of medicinal energies…..nevertheless, that Mind Devouring Bug remained obediently swirling about within the clear liquid.
The concentration of medicinal properties contained was already inadequate. Thus, the Mind Devouring Bug made no improvements in growth, and Wei Suo couldn’t sense a single distinctive change in it.
The method of preparing the Demon Nurturing Liquid was already recorded in the Incomplete Beast Slaving booklet. Now that spiritual stones weren’t a problem to Wei Suo temporarily…..however, refining the Earthflame Immortal Lotus was merely the first phase of Wei Suo’s secluded training. According to his plan, he would have to head out to prepare the materials that could supplement his refining of the Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus.
Because it was mentioned by the green gowned Old Man, without those supplementary aiding spirit medicines, he was afraid two petals of the Mythical Underworld Immortal lotus wouldn’t be sufficient for Wei Suo to cultivate an Ice Spirit Root…..
After keeping his Mind Devouring Bug into his Beast Slaving Pouch, Wei Suo first paused in the room as he savoured the thought of his newly acquired Firecloud Flying skill.
The Firecloud Flying skill was an excellent skill technique of the former Firecloud Sect. Amongst all flying skills, it could be classified as a mid-level Earth rank one. When executing it, not only was its flying speed brilliant, it even conjured up fireclouds beneath one’s feet; simultaneously possessing the incinerating might against opposing artifacts.
Wei Suo produced the golden leaf detailing this Firecloud Flying skill and contemplated it for roughly a few hours. All of a sudden, his figure blurred as he surged up. Concurrently, clumps of fiery fire clouds appeared beneath his feet. Wei Suo hovered in midair in his room, as the fiery fire clouds beneath his feet encompassed a circular radius of 15 metres……
He was utterly stirred as the fire clouds rolled forward with a rumble, carrying an afterimage behind Wei Suo.
“Chi! Chi! Chi!”
The temperature of the room rapidly heated up, as fire red irradiated the four walls. Beneath him, the two bowls of clear Nurturing Demon Liquid had been evaporated dry. Even the ordinary, forged cyan jade basin were scorched with cracks by the fire clouds.
Observing such a scene, Wei Suo’s eyes immediately brimmed with astonishment and delight.
That was because the fruits of his testing indicated that the might produced from the fire clouds conjured beneath his feet, clearly exceeded the records written in the golden leaf.
According to logic, it would be normal for a sect’s recorded skill technique to be exaggerated. This was due to the face reputation of many sects or loose cultivators. They sought to magnify the might of their own skill techniques, exhibiting it was out of the ordinary…..especially for certain sects, they did that just to lure in certain disciples with outstanding talent. Instead, for one to write a description weaker than it truly was, that was fundamentally impossible.
However, Wei Suo’s mind flashed with a notion, one that immediately feedbacked the underlying mechanics of this. He burst into crazed laughters.
Fire Spirit Root cultivator!
Although he relied on spirit medicines, Wei Suo being a Fire Spirit Root cultivator couldn’t be discounted.
Furthermore, this Firecloud Flying skill was a fire elemental skill technique. Thus, Wei Suo’s demonstrating of his speed and might would naturally be amplified.
A Fire Spirit Root cultivator would be more attuned to fire element true energy as compared to ordinary cultivators. Even the most ordinary fireball skill, would unleash a far more terrifying fireball than others……
Viewing the might of those fire clouds, it could minimally rival the might of a half-spirit class artifact. Therefore, Wei Suo employing this flying skill in battle would be akin to him having a half-spirit class fire shield. Moreover, as the higher his cultivation increased, the might of his fire clouds wouldn’t stall but increase as well. Wei Suo was exceedingly pleased with its flying speed, as it was above that of his Whitejade Crane.
Its only flaw was like most other true flying skill techniques, it exhausted true energies rapidly.
In Wei Suo’s estimates, with his current Heavenly Circuit Stage level 2 cultivation, he would be able to fly at full speed for roughly over 12 hours if his true energy was at optimal state. For far distance flying, he would still temporarily rely on his flying artifact, the Whitejade Crane.
When he returned to his peaceful room, the night sky had already turned completely dark. The green gowned Old Man had resurfaced from the Ghost Raising Kar, and the duo skipped any mindless chatter. Wei Suo directly hugged the Ghost Raising Jar before he consumed a Disguise pellet that could alter his bodily aura. Then wearing that conical bamboo hat to mask his face, Wei Suo rushed off towards the Ninepeaks shop.
According to both their plans, the next phase of secluded training was to cultivate his Ice Spirit Root, and then training to breakthrough to the Heavenly Circuit stage level 3 before promoting his Purple Mystic True Technique to mid-level Earth rank. Furthermore, he would also have to procure the materials needed to nurture his Mind Devouring Bug. Hence, Wei Suo naturally had a load of items he had to prepare. In addition to the items he wanted to sell, if he offloaded everything to only one ship, it would arouse the suspicions of others.
Wei Suo was prepared to purchase a portion of his necessities, before selling off some ordinary rank 1 or 2 skill talismans that he wouldn’t need anymore; as well as ordinary half-spirit class shield artifacts like the Iron Profound shield and so on. Then, he planned to visit the Golden Jade Pavilion, and offload 1-2 Treasure Receiving Pockets and other half-spirit class artifacts.
The confidentiality of the Ninepeaks shop was far inferior to pavilions like the Precious Treasure Pavilion. Furthermore, there were several, rather special and valuable objects. Thus, Wei Suo didn’t dare to conduct most of his dealings here.
After a brief while, the cyan robed and conical hat dressed Wei Suo strolled into the large doors of the Ninepeaks shop.
“Hey, anyone around?” A peculiar scene occurred. The hall of the Ninepeaks was utterly empty, there wasn’t even an attending staff present.
“Yes, someone is here.” Hearing Wei Suo’s voice, someone then sprinted over from behind.
“Your sister!” Seeing the individual that sprinted out, Wei Suo couldn’t help but call out in shock.
“Big brother, it’s you! Is it really you?” That Ninepeaks shop attendant was equally stunned. He could seemingly recognize Wei Suo as he called out in pleasant surprise.
