Chapter 3418: A Great Increase in Martial Soul Force (2)
“Comprehension Tea? That’s some good stuff. The tea might not necessarily have any substantial effect on us given our cultivations, but the taste is simply wonderful. It’s unforgettable.” When he mentioned Comprehension Tea, the fourth senior brother Yun Ziting’s eyes immediately lit up. He stared at Jian Chen and grinned. “That’s quite ungenerous of you, eighth junior brother. You didn’t actually take out something so wonderful sooner for your seniors to enjoy.”
“Once we emerge from the Martial Soul Array, I’ll immediately share it with you.” Jian Chen smiled faintly.
Afterwards, Hun Zang, Chu Jian, and Yue Chao began conjuring the ways. They demonstrated their own comprehension of the laws without holding back at all for Jian Chen and Qing Shan to comprehend.
Immediately, the two of them sensed that the Laws of the Hallowed hidden deep behind mists had cleared up.
The three of them used their full strength to manifest the various wonders of the Laws of the Hallowed.
Conjuring the ways was extremely arduous to the person behind it. In the Saints’ World, many disciples rarely enjoyed such treatment.
That was because as soon as the ways began to manifest, they might last for thousands or tens of thousand years. On top of that, the deeper the ways, the more difficult it was to conjure them.
The person on the receiving end was not always a super genius with startling comprehension either. Some cultivators might not necessarily benefit at all for several centuries when they comprehended the ways even when they had their master conjuring the ways specially for them.
As a result, conjuring the ways was a strenuous task with no upside for the person behind it.
As Hun Zang, Chu Jian, and Yue Chao conjured the ways, Yun Ziting, Su Qi, and Bai Rufeng did not idle around either. Through the Martial Soul Array, they shared the power of their souls with the three others, allowing them to maintain this process for a little longer.
There was no concept of time when it came to cultivation. They forgot about the passage of time, completely submerged in passing on the ways and cultivating. Hun Zang and the others depleted the power of their souls again and again. Whenever they ran out, they would stop the Martial Soul Array and go outside to ingest heavenly resources and pills to recover.
After fully recovering, they would continue conjuring the ways for their juniors.
During this period, the six of them devoted themselves to serving Jian Chen and Qing Shan.
During the periods of recovery, Jian Chen had also opened the space in his soul and retrieved some heavenly resources from the Xuanhuang Microcosm to share with his seniors.
Year after year passed. During this time, the successors of the Martial Soul lineage truly witnessed just how terrifying Jian Chen’s talent was.
Logically, after reaching the Primordial realm, every increase that came afterwards was extremely difficult, riddled with obstacles.
However, these difficulties did not seem to exist with Jian Chen. His Laws of the Hallows only took several decades before reaching the Second Heavenly Layer of Infinite Prime.
After another century, he broke through to the Third Heavenly Layer.
In under two centuries, Jian Chen had broken through two realms of cultivation, while Qing Shan who was also comprehending the ways remained at the same spot.
“This makes no sense at all. Why is eighth junior brother’s cultivation speed so freakish? Even with three senior brothers assisting on the side, it shouldn’t be that fast.” Qing Shan was greatly demoralised. He had been first on the Godkings’ Throne in the past after all. He had experienced endless glory where he crushed all other experts at the same level as him.
Even after reaching the Primordial realm, he could completely overwhelm experts at the same level as him.
But right now, he discovered that what he took pride in was gradually vanishing.
“Martial Soul Force isn’t even eighth junior brother’s forte. His strongest aspect is the Laws of the Sword and the Laws of Space. Sigh, whatever. I’ll stop comparing myself with this freak.” Qing Shan shook his head rather powerlessly and discarded his thoughts. He began to focus on cultivation.
Afterwards, Jian Chen’s breakthroughs with Martial Soul Force became more difficult with each one. He had already gone from using several decades for a Heavenly Layer to several centuries for a Heavenly Layer towards the end.
Even with the three Ninth Heavenly Layer Chaotic Primes conjuring the ways with their full efforts, Jian Chen could clearly sense that the amount of time he needed multiplied with each increase.
In the end, after spending one thousand five hundred years in secluded cultivation, Jian Chen stopped comprehending the Laws of the Hallowed.
His Laws of the Hallowed had already reached the peak of the Sixth Heavenly Layer of Infinite Prime. He was stuck at a bottleneck and unable to advance any further. If he continued his secluded cultivation, he would only be wasting Hun Zang and everyone else’s efforts for nothing.
Of course, there was another important reason. Jian Chen felt like his Martial Soul Force had increased far too rapidly recently. He needed a period of consolidation.
Meanwhile, Qing Shan had also reached the Sixth Heavenly Layer of Infinite Prime after drinking the Comprehension Tea. He was at the same level as Jian Chen.
Despite also experiencing a leap in strength during this secluded cultivation, Qing Shan did not feel happy at all.
When Jian Chen’s Martial Soul Force had only just reached Godhood, he was already a Primordial realm expert and he had even made a relatively lengthy journey into the Primordial realm already.
But right now, Jian Chen’s Martial Soul Force had already reached the same height as him.
Apart from that, during the gaps between comprehending the Laws of the Hallowed, he met up with the Wind Venerable several times while Hun Zang and the others were recovering. From the Wind Venerable, he heard some news that made him happy.
His birth mother, Bi Yuntian, had also come to the Saints’ World. Under Ming Dong’s personal arrangements, she entered the Radiant Saint Hall.
Even though Bi Yuntian’s class as a Radiant Saint Maser was very low, she enjoyed an extremely esteemed status in the Radiant Saint Hall.
Among the five protectors of the Radiant Saint Hall, Donglin Yanxue and Bai Yu directly treated Bi Yuntian as their most respected senior and closest family. Even Han Xin treated Bi Yuntian as an equal.
Aside from that, Xuan Zhan, who temporarily served as the hall master, and his son, Xuan Ming, treated Bi Yuntian politely, without any sense of arrogance at all. They did not treat her as a regular disciple either.
As a result, Bi Yuntian became the most special Radiant Saint Master in the Radiant Saint Hall despite her meagre strength.
On top of that, the five protectors of the Radiant Saint Hall reached a rare agreement regarding Bi Yuntian. They cleared away all the discussions and forcefully suppressed the objections and complaints from below, giving the Radiant Saint Hall’s best resources to her.
Bi Yuntian’s entry to the Radiant Saint Hall lifted a great worry from Jian Chen’s heart, as he knew that it was very difficult for his mother to increase her Radiant Saint Force on the Tian Yuan Continent. She was also limited by her lifespan.
Now that Bi Yuntian received the full support and nurturing of the Radiant Saint Hall, at least he did not have to worry about her lifespan anymore, regardless of how her strength progressed.
When Bi Yuntian arrived in the Saints’ World, Changyang Ba had obviously followed her up too and brought a great group of people from the Tian Yuan Continent.
The people from the Tian Yuan Continent were basically all sent to the Tian Yuan clan on the Prosper Plane. Meanwhile, Changyang Ba only remained in the Tian Yuan clan for several decades before coming to the Radiant Saint Hall with grief for his dead son. He settled down on the Soaring Clouds Peak where Han Xin cultivated, accompanying Bi Yuntian.
The two of them were deeply saddened by the news of Jian Chen’s death.
