AST 2485 - Divine Grade Grand Formation, Nirvana Jade Liquor, Breakthrough
After half a month, Qing Shui finally let out a smirk. He had discovered the way to break through the formation. The method Qing Shui had tried before was not incorrect per se. The problem was that the formation was too tough. It was similar to Qing Shui’s own formation but with a strengthened formation eye.
The method Qing Shui would utilize was to implant a Spirit Absorption Formation to disrupt the Grand Formation.
For the past half a month, the others had been cultivating nonstop. Qing Shui was trying to break through the formation by himself. After many attempts, including several times where he would be repelled by the formation to the point of vomiting blood, he finally found a solution.
After cultivating for a bit and eating some food, Qing Shui attempted to break the formation for the umpteenth time. This time, he placed the Spirit Absorption Formation with a strengthened formation eye. This method should be able to disrupt the Grand Formation. Had it not been with the strengthened formation eye, even with Qing Shui’s mastery of formation, he would still not be able to disrupt the Grand Formation.
With the Spirit Absorption Formation disruption, Qing Shui began to break the formation. Once he took out one of the spirit stones that was used as a formation flag, he was a bit shocked. It had been a complete beast skull that was similar to a dragon’s skull. The Qi aura coming off of the skull was formidable. Its power was immense and pure.
This formation was unimaginably breathtaking. This was further proof to Qing Shui’s hypothesis. Divine Grade Gold Elements and Immortal Grade Jade Stone were used as formation flags. What else could be in this cave, if not the Divine Grade Jade Liquor?
To begin with, what exactly was this Divine Grade Jade Liquor?
As time passed by, Qing Shui gathered more Divine Grade materials. This was a huge gain.
Without any loud noise, nor any fluctuations to the surrounding, the formation had been broken. In front of him was a cave entrance, covered by a thick fog. The aura and spiritual power leaking from the cave could shake one’s heart. Qing Shui’s soul felt as though it had been thoroughly cleansed.
“The formation is broken!”
As the others found out, they all came to gather. They were shocked to see a cave entrance. At the same time, they were all curious as to what was inside.
“Let’s go inside and have a look!” Qing Shui said towards the others as they walked inside.
This area was not an especially large cave, but it contained one large palace. The amount of spirit power gathered was astounding.
“What was that noise?”
Qing Shui looked over and walked towards the noise. The large palace was about 300 meters large and roughly 100 meters tall. The further inside he went, the thicker the spirit power became.
“Ah, there seems to be a turn ahead of us.”
Once they completed the turn, Qing Shui was shocked at the large pond in front of him. The pond was filled by more than half with a pure white liquid. The fog surrounding the entire area gave off an immortal realm aura. The pond was surrounded by spirit power.
Qing Shui quickly discovered that this ‘Jade Liquor’ contained a dangerous aura. Unlike an aura given off as killing intent, this aura was similar to an immense strength.
“A very powerful force?”
“What is this?”
“Is this Jade Liquor?”
“Yes, there appear to be some words. It says, ‘Nirvana Pond’!”
By the time Qing Shui had heard their voice, he had already seen those two words at space just above the bond. Not only was ‘Nirvana Pond’ written there, but there was also a short passage underneath.
The passage explained that the Jade Liquor contained immense power. For those whose body was not strong enough, intaking the Liquor would result in them ceasing to exist. They would also not leave behind a corpse.
Qing Shui looked at the bond, then spoke to the rest of the people, “Let me try first.”
Qing Shui was confident in himself. He slowly went into the pond. A surge of heat enveloped his body. Luckily, he had the Nine Yang Golden Body constitution. With almost complete resistance to fire elements, he could withstand the heat.
“You guys should first try with your hands. Don’t rush to jump in. Check if you can withstand it or not first. Jin Gang and crew, try entering with tempering and see how long you can hold on.”
Even though this was a pond, there was an area in the middle that separated the pond into two sections. Since the pond was only more than half full, the separation could be seen. Had the pond been filled to the top, they would not be able to see the two sections.
Jin Gang, Mountain Move Battle God, and the rest of the gang entered the pond that Qing Shui was in. Immediately, their face was completely red as they withstood the pain.
The women sat down at the side of the pond within the fog.
Hao Tian and crew stayed within the Jade Liquor for a while before moving to sit in the fog.
Qing Shui stayed within the Jade Liquor the entire time, absorbing the Liquor. His body, bones, and blood were undergoing continuous changes.
The Jade Liquor within the pond was slowly decreasing. At the same time, the fog above the Jade Liquor itself was thickening.
Most of them became saturated after three days of tempering. The women were in a similar situation, the Jade Liquor on their side was almost half gone.
The Jade Liquor where Qing Shui was situated was almost at rock bottom. At this moment, Qing Shui’s body was absorbing the last of the Jade Liquor.
As the Jade Liquor was completely absorbed, Qing Shui opened his eyes. He breathed out a white breath and stood up. He could tell that the others were all looking at him. In this halve of the pond, Qing Shui had absorbed almost half of the Jade Liquor. The others had absorbed the other half.
Qing Shui was almost saturated. While this was happening, a drop of white Jade Liquor dripped down. At this rate, it was one drop per day. How long would it take to fill up this pond? This was evidence that this Liquor was a real treasure.
There was another halve of the Jade Liquor pond on the other side. Qing Shui summoned his beasts. The others also took advantage of the Jade Liquor that was left and absorbed the rest of the Jade Liquor.
Qing Shui felt how ridiculous the situation was. This Liquor was something that could raise one’s power at the fastest rate possible while increasing one’s constitution and foundation. This was a treasure that was an all-around boost. Thinking deeper about it, this was another form of Nirvana.
The benefits could be clearly seen as their strength was increasing rapidly.
The one who received the most benefits was none other than Qing Shui. He had directly absorbed the Jade Liquor within the pond. The others had only absorbed the essence in the fog. His body constitution had been further improved as his flesh glowed with a vigorous golden aura. His body structure carried a tenacity that was hard to ignore. His entire body, including his bone structure and internal organs, had been strengthened.
Moreover, his strength had been greatly increased. This one week within the Nirvana Pond had raised his strength by two folds. His foundation had also been increased.
Qing Shui’s current strength was 30 trillion dao.
His defense power was at 300 trillion dao.
With the defense buff of the Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda of Defense, Qing Shui’s defense power would reach 360 trillion dao.
Coupled with the Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda of Violence, his defense would be increased by 30 trillion dao which was the equivalent of 390 trillion dao defense power.
Adding the effects of Battle God Halo, Formations, Area Dominance, and other battle techniques, Qing Shui’s total defense power would be at 800 trillion dao.
Qing Shui was already at the Grade Six Nurture God Realm. Within the ten Nurture God Realm, the first three grades were of one classification, the fourth to six were of the second class, the seventh to ninth were of the third group, and the tenth grade was the peak. After that was the Great Perfection Stage. As of now, Qing Shui had never heard of anyone breaking through Nurture God Realm.
Qing Shui was at the peak of Grade Six Nurture God Realm. He had a bit of regret, as had he broken through to the seventh grade, he would experience a huge change.
A man who is never content. Qing Shui could only make fun of himself. This was a huge encounter of fate. Otherwise, who knew how long Qing Shui would take to reach the Grade Six Nurture God Realm.
