Chapter 3494: The Energy-gathering Divine Mountain
On the main peak of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens, several dozen Nine-heavenly Xuan Immortals stood around quietly. They were quite distinct from one another.
On one side were the auxiliaries who were dressed very casually, standing around idly.
On the other side were the core disciples of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens that wore the same uniform, standing around orderly.
At this moment, all of them looked at the sect master of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens.
The sect master looked towards the group of auxiliaries on the left and said loudly, “Auxiliaries, since you could join the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens, I’m sure you’re familiar with our rules as well. All auxiliaries possess a right to extremely great freedom in our Sword Sect of Violet Heavens. You are not governed by the sect, nor do you have to fight for us. You can even leave whenever you want to.”
“As auxiliaries, the only thing you have to do is spend some time cooperating with us to power the Energy-gathering Divine Mountain every year so that our Sword Sect of Violet Heavens can condense a Seven-coloured Sword Lotus.‘’
“Sect master, we all know that already. You don’t have to repeat it here again. Let’s get started,” one of the new auxiliaries called out from among the crowd.
Jian Chen had met this auxiliary before. He was one of the many Nine-heavenly Xuan Immortals that had visited him over the past three days. He had come from a small place, roaming the Immortals’ World alone. He entered the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens this time for the holy land of the sect, the legacies of Immortal Monarchs, and even the letters from the Immortal Emperors.
The sect master smiled indifferently. “If that’s the case, I won’t say anything more.”
After a pause, the sect master suddenly yelled out, “Are the disciples of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens present?”
“Assemble the Constellation formation!”
“As you wish!”
With the sect master’s order, all the core disciples from the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens rushed into the air. They radiated with the presence of Nine-heavenly Xuan Immortals and established a formation mid-air.
As soon as the formation took shape, the space darkened. Only the twenty or so core disciples shone with dazzling light in the sky, like bright stars in the dark outer space.
Immediately, the space above the main peak began to shake violently. The Constellation formation that the disciples assembled was like a key that opened up the space. A spatial crack several hundred metres wide silently appeared.
When the crack appeared, a tremendous presence that made everyone’s expression change gradually seeped out.
When he sensed the presence, Jian Chen shivered inside. He was surprised.
As an Immortal Emperor, he immediately identified that the source of the presence was a god artifact. On top of that, its quality was not low either. It had already reached the ranks of high quality god artifacts.
“There’s actually still a high quality god artifact in the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens? And the high quality god artifact has been hidden deeply in the space there by an expert with extremely great mastery over the Laws of Space,” Jian Chen thought. The Sword Sect of Violet Heavens might have declined, but their foundations were not as miserable as he imagined them to be. At the very least, they still maintained a high quality god artifact.
At this moment, as the spatial crack grew larger, a mountain several hundred metres tall slowly drifted out, hovering over the main peak.
“This is an Energy-gathering Divine Mountain. There are a total of eighteen mountains like this. When the eighteen Energy-gathering Divine Mountains were assembled together, not only could the energy-gathering formation draw over all the spiritual Qi on the Reverent Observance Plane, but it could even draw in the spiritual Qi from outer space.”
“In the past, the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens only treated the eighteen high quality god artifact Energy-gathering Divine Mountains as a large-scale energy-gathering formation, but now, it looks like only one remains from the eighteen of the past.” the sword spirits that had hidden away deeply inside Jian Chen’s body said gently.
Jian Chen obviously heard them and felt secretly amazed. A formation composed of eighteen high quality god artifacts was actually just for the sake of gathering energy for the sect. He could not help but sigh over the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens’ extravagance.
At this moment, Jian Chen seemed to notice something. His eyes shone brightly as he stared straight at the Energy-gathering Divine Mountain in the air.
Very soon, he noticed that the Energy-gathering Divine Mountain had undergone special refinement at the hands of an expert skilled in the Way of Space, such it had half-merged with the space here.
Under this state, the Energy-gathering Divine Mountain had basically become part of the space here. They were inseparable, so it obviously could not be taken away.
In other words, as long as someone occupied the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens’ main peak, it was equivalent to occupying this high quality god artifact.
Leaving the main peak was equivalent to losing the ability to use this high quality god artifact.
The Energy-gathering Divine Mountain was the same as the Tower of Radiance from the Radiant Saint Hall. Their location was fixed, so they could not be taken away.
“All auxiliaries and core disciples, please channel your energy into the Energy-gathering Divine Mountain!” the sect master of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens called out. With a single movement, he had already appeared before the Energy-gathering Divine Mountain. As he pressed down heavily against the mountain, the tremendous energy in his body was poured in endlessly.
The sect master and the only remaining elder of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens, Nong Fugui, appeared before the Energy-gathering Divine Mountain together. They channelled in their energy without any hesitation.
Following them were all the core disciples of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens and the several dozen auxiliaries they had recruited externally.
After receiving everyone’s energy, the Energy-gathering Divine Mountain immediately shone with blinding light. A tremendous pressure filled the surroundings. The true might of a high quality god artifact was gradually awakening from its slumber.
Immediately, spiritual Qi surged in the surroundings. All the energy within several hundred million kilometres was drawn over by the Energy-gathering Divine Mountain before being refined by the mountain and turned into extremely pure spiritual Qi.
This was not regular spiritual Qi, but a special energy that contained hints of sword intent.
It was as if just absorbing this spiritual Qi with sword intent over long periods of time would bring tremendous benefits to comprehending the Way of the Sword.
Immediately, the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens that was originally sparse in spiritual Qi rapidly turned into a blessed land. The dense spiritual Qi had already begun to turn into a mist.
Many disciples of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens had already gathered around the main peak. As the dense spiritual Qi flowed in, all of them began to cheer loudly. Afterwards, they sat down at the foot of the main peak and concentrated on cultivation.
“Sure enough, the Energy-gathering Divine Mountain is wondrous. It’s only demonstrated less than a hundredth of its full power, yet it’s drawn in all the spiritual Qi from several hundred million kilometres,” Jian Chen thought. After all, there were only two Immortal Monarchs and several dozen Nine-heavenly Xuan Immortals powering it right now. Unleashing a hundredth of the Energy-gathering Divine Mountain’s power was already their limit.
After all, only Grand Primes or in other words, Immortal Exalts, could unleash the full power of high quality god artifacts under normal circumstances.
“Our Sword Sect of Violet Heavens only activates the Energy-gathering Divine Mountain once a year or the organisations around us will come to make trouble. The cultivation of the several tens of thousand disciples in our Sword Sect of Violet Heavens all rely on this bit of energy we absorb once a year, so please use all of your effort. That way, we can last a little bit longer, and our disciples can absorb a little more spiritual Qi.” Jin Sang’s voice rang out in the ears of all the auxiliaries. He was almost pleading with them.
Forcefully powering a high quality god artifact, even if it was just a hundredth of its might, still took an extremely great toll on everyone.
In just a short while, many of the Nine-heavenly Xuan Immortals became rather pale, showing signs of giving in.
At this moment, a great rumble suddenly rang out from outside the protective formation. Shortly afterwards, the entire formation shook violently, immediately depleting a vast amount of energy.
“Dammit, who’s attacking our protective formation!?” A core disciple of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens cursed in anguish. All the energy that the defensive formation had consumed in an instant brought great pain to the core disciples.
“A great elder of the Immortal Sect of Azure Foxes has come to visit. Sword Sect of Violet Heavens, open up your defensive formation, or you better not blame us for smashing in your formation,” a voice bloated with pride rang out from outside the formation.
