Ancient Strengthening Technique - Chapter 1213-1215
AST 1213 –Heaven and Earth Battle Beast, Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. Dragon Species Force
The Dragon Elephant Force has increased from the original ten folds to the present twenty folds. This was the true Dragon Elephant Force. Only this was able to match up to the nickname Heaven and Earth Battle Beast. As Qing Shui observed the current Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant, the elegant and ancient aura of it made him really excited. It somehow gave him a nervous feeling.
Qing Shui felt like laughing. Right now, merely the Dragon Elephant Force had already increased the strength of the dragon elephant up to four hundred thousand nimbus. If he has had this Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant previously, it would have been a piece of cake for him to kill that baby dragon. However, that baby dragon in a way was also considered to have helped him a lot.
Qing Shui couldn't wait to check out the battle techniques of the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. Even the old battle techniques from before could help increase the strength of the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephants by a number of folds. If that was the case, just with its current strength, he was already able to instantly kill the fire baby dragon from before.
Mighty Dragon Elephant's Recklessness, three folds of standard attacks. It could hit twenty targets at most.
This still hadn't changed. Despite so, Qing Shui smiled happily. The Dragon Elephant Force was the key, and that had increased by one whole fold. Even if the rest were to stay the same, Qing Shui would still feel quite happy about it. But merely the Mighty Dragon Elephant's Recklessness already increased his strength up to a 1.2 million nimbus.
1.2 million nimbus. Even though this was within Qing Shui's expectations, he was still shocked by it. What kind of strength was this? He wasn't really clear about it. Could this be considered as the strength of peak fourth grade State Masters?
Mighty Elephant Stomp, Great Perfection Stage. Ten folds of raw offensive strength. There was a fixed chance that it would cause the opponent to experience paralysis which as a result immobilize them.
Other than it have a fixed chance of paralyzing opponent, it basically didn't contain much wounding power. Furthermore, the chance of it paralyzing its opponent was very small as well.
Diamond Sword Qi: Instantaneously shot out Core Qi to attack opponents. It possesses powerful wounding power. It could decrease the opponent's strength by twenty percent. The effect last for two hours.
This battle technique would be useful in the future. Not only so, it was quite a decent offensive battle technique. More importantly, it carried the function to decrease opponent's strength by twenty percent.
Vajra Subdue Demons: Once used, it would cause a lot of the targets within a thousand meters radius to experience decrease in strength as much as ten percent. The targets cannot exceed fifty people. This effect would last for two hours.
In the past, due to the strength of the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant being not strong enough, it resulted in the very rare use of Vajra Subdue Demons. Now, things were just perfect, it could finally be used now. Unfortunately, it still only weaken opponent by one fold. Even so, when used together with Emperor's Qi, it would definitely have heaven-defying results.
A man who was never content was like a snake trying to swallow an elephant. This was precisely what Qing Shui felt he was at the moment.
Instantaneous Diamond Evasion: Within five thousand meters, the dragon elephant could instantly jump off from one spot to another.
This ability has gotten stronger by more than a fold.
Ferocious Dragon Elephant Attack: Instantly trigger five folds of user's original strength to attack a single target.
This too didn't change. This was one of the most powerful single kill attacks belonging to that of the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. It was capable of increasing the strength up to 2 million clouds in an instant. This was the biggest killer weapon for the dragon elephant, especially when it was used together with Instantaneous Diamond Evasion.
Now, it's already considered to be a Heaven and Earth Battle Beast. It's born solely for the purpose of battling.
Dark Infernal Flames: The dark flame below its legs enabled the attacks of the dragon elephant to have twenty percent chance of breaking armors. Simultaneously, it also increases the speed of the dragon elephant in the sky by one fold.
Dragon Scale Armor: Passive battle technique, enable a significant increase in dragon elephant's defense. The powerful body of the dragon elephant is its biggest ability.
The last one turned into Dragon Scale Armor. It also turned into a passive Battle Technique. Even though the way it was described was almost the same as in the past, Qing Shui knew that its defensive ability had been raised enormously.
Qing Shui came back to his senses. The surprise he felt in his heart was indescribable. Now, merely the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant already made him felt a lot braver. The maximum strength he could draw out now was a hundred and seventy thousand nimbus. But now, the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant was able to draw out two million nimbus. Just how big was the difference in strength? Let alone the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant had the Dragon Scale Armor… It was just too powerful.
As Qing Shui sensed something new within his Dantian, he stunned. He quickly took a peek into it. A grey pellet has appeared within his Dantian. Without much thought, Qing Shui could already tell that it was a feedback of strength given by the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant due to the divine Marionette.
As Qing Shui thought up to this point, he stunned. This time, the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant has increased its raw strength as much as around twenty thousand nimbus. It was a transformation in its nature. This was considered as a breakthrough for dragon species. Since that happened, how much of the feedback strength would he get?
Two thousand nimbus? Or more?
He could get an additional two thousand nimbus worth of raw strength? Qing Shui froze in shock. The impact he got from before which he got from the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant got stopped by his current thought. Previously, his raw strength was worth forty nimbus…… If he achieved a strength worth two thousand nimbus, it would mean he has increased it by fifty folds.
Previously, with the usage of Big Dipper Sword, he was able to achieve thirty thousand nimbus of strength. Under the circumstance when he met the twenty percent chance to double his attack prowess, it would worth sixty thousand nimbus. If his raw strength was to really increase by fifty times, that would mean he would have strength worth 1.5 million nimbus. If the condition for strength double was met, it would be around 3 million nimbus.
What kind of concept is this? How strong is the eldest princess?
Qing Shui felt both agitated as well as unbelievable being hit by all of these sudden news. It seemed like his Spirit Energy has become even stronger, particularly under the situation when he used the Seal of Rocs.
Qing Shui stopped thinking. He calmed his mind. For now, he was thinking mainly about whether he should refine this terrifying strength. Would his body be able to cope against it? Or would it explode and as a result cause his death?
The Violet Gold Bloodlines within his body has become a lot thicker. With his Nine Yang Golden Body at Large Success Stage, he didn't know if he would be able to stand it. After all, the feedback of his strength this time was way too powerful. He would tremble every time he thought about increasing two thousand nimbus of his raw strength. It's just that this would require him to add in the amplification of both his golden pellets and seven-colored pellets, which was why he was feeling so worried.
Forget it, the current matter at hand was for him to first meet the girls. He would only ponder over this issue a bit later. Qing Shui gestured the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant and stepped onto it. After that, he disappeared into the direction where the girls were.
This time, Qing Shui felt a lot more brave standing on top of the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. This was precisely just as the theory said, a very able person would be very daring. The strength of the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant was equivalent to being his own strength. "The sky was high and broad for birds flying;the sea was wide and deep for fish swimming", this was exactly the mindset he was having right now. He quickly proceeded into the direction where the Fire Bird went just now. Along the way, he would from time to time, use the Instantaneous Diamond Evasion.
After flying for awhile, Qing Shui kept his Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. He used the Sacred Jade divine Stone Ring and flashed across the sky. For every one time he used it, he would travel a distance of two hundred Li. He continued on until he traveled about ten thousand Li. The remaining times he could use the ring has also been used up. However, Qing Shui was already able to sense the Fire Bird's aura.
At the same time, he seemed to have also sensed noises of people fighting.
Qing Shui got shocked. He increased the speed of the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant all the way to its maximum.
"Surround them. I am interested to see how the people from Breezing Wind Veranda are going to try to run away. Since you are here, don't blame us for not showing any politeness. If you want to blame, blame yourself for sticking with Breezing Wind Veranda."
A rough voice could be heard faintly.
"You guys are harming people from your own academy. Are you not afraid of getting punished by Heaven Secrets Academy?" A bold and powerful voice came through. It sounded loud and clear.
Qing Shui was startled. It's very likely that they're together with other people from Breezing Wind Veranda.
"Haha, foolish. The Heaven Secrets Academy were too busy to intervene with small issues like this. Let me repeat one more time, join the Saint Child Band. Or else, the outcome today will be beyond your expectations. Don't say that I haven't made myself clear enough." The rough voice from before sounded a bit arrogant.
"Do you guys not fear that the Breezing Wind Veranda might come back and seek revenge from you guys?"
"Haha, this is funny, even Yu Sunu, the leader of Breezing Wind Veranda is unable to break free from the grasp of our Saint Child. Aren't you aware that the Saint Child is after Yu Sunu? Be obedient and join us. This way, we will be able to maintain a good image with each other. If it isn't because these girls look pretty, do you really think that it will be that easy for you guys to join Saint Child Band?" A soft voice came through.
By now, Qing Shui has already arrived. Standing on top of the mighty Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant, he was able to observe the situation down below. The girls as well as a few other ten people were being surrounded by a large group consisting of around four hundred men. They weren't actually the people associated with Prince Fu from before.
Judging by their conversation which Qing Shui overheard from before, he was able to tell that they should be people from Saint Child Band as well as Breezing Wind Veranda respectively. Or rather, it could also be said to be the problems between the eldest princess and the person known as Saint Child. It's very likely that they purposely treated people from the Breezing Wind Veranda this way to put pressure on the eldest princess.
Qing Shui realized that the three girls were fine. It's just that around them, there were a few people who were injured. It's very likely that they have only just started fighting. They have yet to go all out, which meant they were just demonstrating their strength. With this being the case, Qing Shui let out a sigh of relief.
Suddenly, a huge demonic beast appeared in mid-air. Furthermore, it was a beast which looked unusually malevolent and fierce. Its dragon head in particular, caused the people from below to feel a bit shocked.
But upon seeing the body of the demonic beast, they stopped fearing it as much. After all, it only carried a bit of dragon bloodlines. It wasn't an actual dragon. There were a lot of demonic beasts which contained features of dragons. Other than their looks, their strength wasn't as powerful.
"Qing Shui, don't come near us. Leave quickly." The seventh princess screamed loudly from below.
However, Qing Shui didn't see it as an issue. He gradually dropped down near the girls. The Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant on the other hand, it remained in the sky.
"Yet another one here trying to dig his own grave…. I am just going to say this one more time, join us Saint Child Band. Young Master Du will serve you well." A gentle and reserved voice came through.
"Let us go. I will pretend like nothing happened today." Qing Shui was looking at the man standing at the heart of the area. The man wore luxurious costumes. Certainly, he had an impressive presence. It's just his eyes……Both of his eyes looked perverted. Around him, there were also two flirtatious women but their level of beauty could only be considered decent.
"Who do you think you are? You want me to let you guys go? Du Xing, kill him. Does he really think that he is invincible just because he owns a giant demonic beast?" The man's voice was heard. He sounded arrogant.
Qing Shui got startled and smiled. He observed the old man who was slowly approaching him before proceeding to do the same to the surroundings. It's very likely that the man with the name Young Master Du held quite a decent position in the Saint Child Band. He would at least be an elite disciple or if not, a core disciple. There were quite a lot of core disciples within the Heaven Secrets Academy. The reason being that the actual powerhouse of the Heaven Secrets Academy were their core disciples. As for the normal, high grade as well as elite disciples which came in the biggest quantity, they belonged to the most bottom part of Heaven Secrets Academy. They were regarded as hopes of the academy. The reason being that core disciples as well as future masters all started off from said positions. There would come a day when they would encounter the same obstacles just to ascend to core disciples.
If Qing Shui had come to this place in the past, it's very likely that he wouldn't have been able to change anything. But now, in his eyes, these people were just equivalent to a group of mole cricket and ants.
"Little brat, you are courting death. Don't blame me for it."
As the old man finished speaking, he immediately charged towards Qing Shui. He totally ignored the people in the surroundings and saw them as nothing.
Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation!
Seal of Roc!
Seven-seven divine Nebula Formation!
Qing Shui couldn't bear to see people acting tough. The old man thought of Qing Shui as someone who could be bullied easily. Watching as the old man charging towards him, without any hesitation, Qing Shui instantly performed his strongest techniques.
Almost immediately, an enormous golden roc appeared once again, Qing Shui smiled at the old man and activated his consciousness.
Actually, the elderly man was significantly stronger than Qing Shui in terms of strength. But because he overestimated himself, he didn't even use his Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation. Added on that he was further weakened by Qing Shui's techniques, eventually, despite his utmost effort to defend himself, it has already been decided that he would suffer a tragic end.
The old man right away spurted out fresh blood and got blown into the distance. As this happened, everyone around the scene got stunned. The old man has now lost his consciousness. It's unknown whether he was still alive. But even if he did manage to survive, he would most likely be half-dead.

AST 1214 –Killing People Out of Rage. Dragon Elephant Might. Saint Child Band. Saint Child
"Will anything happen if I kill him?" At this moment, Qing Shui asked both Yan Jinyu and the Seventh Princess softly.
At present, he was also one of the disciples from Heaven Secrets Academy. Besides that, he was unclear about the truth strength of the Saint Child Band. Merely one Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant should not be sufficient to cause any havoc in Heaven Secrets Academy.
"Martial Sister Xun, do you think anything will happen?" Despite being shocked from what Qing Shui had said, the Seventh Princess asked the woman next to her who was slightly older than herself.
Qing Shui moved his sight to the woman whom the Seventh Princess was talking to. In terms of beauty, this woman could only be considered as a top tier. She wore a greenish-blue colored attire from Heaven Secrets Academy. There were lots of colors available for the attires in Heaven Secrets Academy. Furthermore, they also had lots of variations. It all depended on the preferences of the particular individuals.
"Nothing will really happen if you kill them. But if you don't manage to do it without leaving any evidence, both gangs would truly turn against each other." The woman called Martial Sister Xun knitted her brows and said. She looked a bit weird and unconvinced when looking at Qing Shui.
"They are already about to kill us. Is it still a question of whether we are enemies? I only fear that this may leave a burden to Teacher Sunu. Or else, I would have immediately killed all of these people. They deserved to be killed." These people were from Heaven Secrets Academy, if he took this opportunity to show off his abilities, there would definitely be people coming after him.
It would have been great if he could refine the powerful energy within his body. This way, he would have attained assets for himself within the Heaven Secrets Academy. It should have been considered quite a grand asset. It's just that for now, he didn't really dare to try it as he feared that it might cause his body to burst.
Now, Qing Shui has made up his mind to kill. As a man, he must not be afraid of even the slightest things. Qing Shui who has reached a decision looked at the man opposite him who was just like before, looking full of himself. It didn't matter who he was, today, the only thing which awaited him was death.
The Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant suddenly made its move.
Instantaneous Diamond Evasion!
Ferocious Dragon Elephant Attack!
The Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant charged towards the man with golden light like a phantom. This was also the first time Qing Shui saw the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant's powerful attack.
It was really fast, so fast that for a moment, a look of panic crossed the man's face. Following that, even his voice got covered up by the terrifying aura. After that, everything turned silent.
Mighty Dragon Elephant's Recklessness!
It attacked with three folds of its original strength. Striking twenty targets.
Since the massacre has already started, Qing Shui wouldn't hold back. Previously, the expressions the people showed made Qing Shui lose his thoughts of holding back. Relying on their strength to bully the weak, overwhelming people with their numbers, and bullying the women. All of these acts, in Qing Shui's eyes, were no different than behavior of vicious beasts.
The scene did not look that intense. It was more like a one-sided massacre. Not even the slightest screams could be heard. The attack was so powerful to the extent people couldn't manage to scream. The majority of the people were in a state of shock and panic, so much so that they forgot to scream.
By the time the people from the opposite side reacted to it and was about to run away, everything was too late.
Over a hundred people, a hundred disciples, with a few strong warriors among them, died just like that.
In the span of a few breaths, the area turned quiet, leaving nothing but only a few traces of blood. Qing Shui managed to carry out the massacre quite effortlessly.
The entire place became so quiet that even the noise of pin dropped could be heard. Not even a person who breathed loudly was present.
"Alright, all of the people here are dead. I hope that everyone will help keep this as a secret. Since everyone here is from Breezing Wind Veranda, I am sure that all of you know what to do next. The Breezing Wind Veranda will become formidable. In the future, you guys will certainly be proud for being a part of it." Qing Shui felt that it was necessary to inform them at least that. For now, he found it too early to provoke the gang of the crown prince.
"Also, don't tell anyone about what I'm capable of." Qing Shui added on.
The others nodded their head. They all looked at Qing Shui with fiery eyes. That was a kind of admiration for warriors. Qing Shui swung his hand, "Alright guys, lets spread out now. You guys should find a partner and be as careful as possible."
Qing Shui realized that he was really calm after killing about a hundred people. These people were not small fry. He looked at both Yan Jinyu and Seventh Princess only to find them blankly staring back at him. In contrast to them, the girl looked really calm.
The others, including Martial Sister Xun left. But before they did, Qing Shui helped the injured cure their wounds. This made them really happy. The people who were injured also felt overcome with emotions.
"Qing Shui, I just noticed that this Dragon Elephant of yours looked different from before." Yan Jinyu smiled while looking at Qing Shui.
The beautiful smiling face which she revealed out of nowhere, as well as those bright eyes and gorgeous white teeth of hers… For a moment, Qing Shui was stunned just from seeing them. In terms of beauty, this sworn sister of his was already considered to be a top tier choice. She was not in the slightest inferior to even the women from the Portraits of Beauty. She looked almost as beautiful as the Seventh Princess. What Qing Shui liked the most about her was the tranquil appearance of hers, and also, the concern she showed to himself.
Yan Jinyu blushed a little from sensing Qing Shui's eyes. That only made her looked even more tender and beautiful.
"Oh yeah, Qing Shui, this Dragon Elephant of yours wasn't this powerful before, was it? Oh yeah, what happened to the Fire Dragon?" The Seventh Princess asked curiously.
Qing Shui embarrassingly took back his sight, "I also don't know what happened. I summoned the Dragon Elephant at the time when I was about to reach my limit. Who knows that it suddenly went crazy and swallowed the entire red dragon by accident."
"It swallowed the dragon?"
The two girls looked at Qing Shui in shock with their mouth open. They seemed totally unconvinced with what he said.
Qing Shui did not mention anything about him Refining Demons, particularly the part where he carried out the Demonic Fusion Refinement by fusing two demonic beasts into one. This method of Refining Demons had huge limitations. It had to contain the same bloodlines. Furthermore, it also came with huge risks.
Thinking back about it now, Qing Shui also felt a bit scared. He wasn't worried about himself because he knew that his life wouldn't be in danger. What he was worried about was the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. Luckily, the Fire Dragon got poisoned and its eyes blinded. Or else, he wouldn't have dared to try it.
"Let's go. It's already quite late. We should first look for a place to rest before continuing our journey tomorrow. With the Dragon Elephant here, it should be enough for me to hunt for enough contribution values."
At this moment, the two girls were also really happy. With the powerful demonic beast with them, their safety would have been ensured even more. It's just that they didn't know about the true strength of the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. If they had known about it, instead of just thinking about them being much safer, they would definitely have gotten so shocked that they dropped their jaw.
They left. In any case, the bloody smell there was too heavy. The four of them set up camp at an empty space. This place had high altitude and wide field of views. Furthermore, the place was also accompanied with fresh air. They simply prepared some food and started eating them while chatting with each other.
"What's up with the Saint Child Band? They seem to be against the Eldest Princess." Qing Shui asked while eating.
"Saint Child Band was one of the huge gang within the Heaven Secrets Academy. It's said that they have as many as a hundred thousand people within their gang. Saint Child was the leader of Saint Child Band. In terms of position, his was even higher compared to teachers and a few elders. It's already been said that he was a genius who wouldn't be seen even after a thousand years. Apparently, he is after my elder sister." The Seventh Princess explained while eating.
Women was the source of all troubles. The more powerful and beautiful a woman was, the more capable they would be. There were only two types of people in this world, either men, or women. Almost half of the strong warriors would have strong desires for women.
Some people desired power, some desired money. There were a few others as well, for example, some would desire long life. But as one became stronger, their lifespan would also increase. Hence, in the end, it still went back to having the desire for more power.
The more someone was, the stronger their desire would be. A lot of strong warriors would have a lot of wives. This was already a very normal thing, some lonely warriors in particular, they would have even stronger needs for women. Something worth noting was that making love could help one eliminate his or her loneliness.
Of course, there were exceptions for people who weren't interested in these and the people who had seen through the secular world. However, so long as one was a normal person, he or she would feel emotions. Even if they had been really powerful and have seen through a lot of things, there would still be things which they found reluctant to let go. Desires had no boundaries.
He couldn't help but think about Di Chen. She was able to see through the secular world. What realm was she in now? Qing Shui was really puzzled. She was in divine Might Dynasty… The Eldest Princess has also seen her before and said that she was really strong. But she was unable to sense it clearly… This just showed that she was as strong as the eldest princess.
Why would she be this strong? Was the Lotus Platform Inheritance this frightening?
He proceeded to think about the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. A lot of strange things were already happening across the continent everyday. It wasn't all that surprising. It's also because Qing Shui found out that Di Chen was almost as strong as the Eldest Princess that he didn't feel rushed to go to divine Might Dynasty.
Besides, he wasn't even sure if she was in divine Might Dynasty at the moment.
"Wake up, who are you thinking about? You seem so focused." The Seventh Princess saw Qing Shui lost in his thought. She couldn't help but asked him that question.
Qing Shui slightly shook his head, "Then is the eldest princess able to handle Saint Child?"
"Elder sister is not someone to be trifled with. He isn't the only one who likes sister. Naturally, there will be people going against him. Hence, no one actually dared to do anything to sister. Other than that, sister's teacher is also a terrifying person. As long as her teacher is here, it's unlikely that anyone would dare to touch her." In the past, the Seventh Princess used to be worried about the Eldest Princess. It was also at that time when the Eldest Princess told her that she has no need to worry about her.
Qing Shui smiled. He couldn't help but think about the Eldest Princess. That woman was already no simple character. She was not only smart, the charm and temperament of hers were also something which no ordinary people could blaspheme. Just like some women, with just one look, they could already arouse men with high se* drive to instantly do inappropriate things.
Upon learning the situation, Qing Shui felt relieved. He planned to wait a bit longer. Once he refined the energy within his body, even that Saint Child should be no match for him.
At night, Qing Shui let out the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant while he went into the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. In there, he could cultivate as much as he liked. At present, the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant was a lot more intelligent than before. It could communicate very well in its mind. Qing Shui however, was still not so used to that weird feeling.
Even though he was yet to get used to it, he really enjoyed it. With this kind of communication, Qing Shui no longer felt as lonely inside the realm. He could even let it help him do a few stuffs on its own. If it had been QIng Shui in the past, he wouldn't have dared to do it, the reason being that humans were more dangerous than demonic beasts. But now, at least the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant was quite strong at this aspect. Adding it up with its current strength, it was almost definitely an unbeatable existence.
Qing Shui looked at the unadorned and grayish Crimson Pellet within his Dantian. This thing was almost as attractive to Qing Shui as a woman of unmatched beauty. If Qing Shui managed to absorb it, he would instantly be like a carp fish which had leaped through the dragon's gate. He would become many times more powerful than the current Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant.
But now, the only thing he could do was to control such desire. He was really fearful. If his body was to really burst, he wouldn't even have a place to cry.
But seeing it as it was, Qing Shui felt even more upset. If it had been a bit lower, for example, around a hundred clouds or something, Qing Shui wouldn't have hesitated to absorb it. But now, he didn't dare to try it recklessly.

AST 1215 –Qing Shui’s Guess, Meeting Tian Jiange Once Again, Lord Sect
Qing Shui was like a very famished person right now. He felt like he was looking at a table of delicacies but was unable to eat it. Because he was too hungry, if he were to eat, he would die from overstuffing himself. However, the temptation kept coming at him, and he would even be willing to accept the fate of being stuffed to death.
Thankfully, Qing Shui had yet to reach the phase where he was going to die of hunger. Furthermore, he already had the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant and that could be considered as a very big step forward. Therefore, he wanted to suppress his urges. Unless there were special circumstances, he would not refine it for now. Qing Shui had a feeling that he would be able to refine it very soon, but he needed to reach a turning point.
The Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant could already handle many situations right now. Moreover, Qing Shui’s own abilities weren’t weak. For someone his age, he was definitely one of the top. However, it was a pity that those in the range of a hundred to two hundred years old were also considered to be young. To people with very long life spans, Qing Shui’s age wasn’t his only heaven-defying advantage.
Cultivation, boring cultivation. Qing Shui had spent a lot of his time on the Seal of Roc and on Taichi. Right now, Qing Shui’s primary mission was to focus on confining and tempering his body.
The reason he didn’t dare to refine was because he was afraid that his body and spirit energy would be unable to handle it. However, when he thought of the Violet Golden Bloodline, Nine Yang Golden Body, Golden Star, his consciousness, and the Yin-Yang Image, Qing Shui still felt very consoled. At the very least, he felt that the success rate was still very high. As long as the required time arrived, he would be able to just refine it directly. At that moment, he would feel his abilities soar tremendously.
He would still require a very long time before the Eight-Eight divine Nebula Formation. Qing Shui wasn’t anxious right now. He would guard the treasure cover until the opportunity to harvest arrived. When the time came, he might just become a god in the human world.
When Qing Shui thought of this, he sensed a rustic feeling. They said that a False God was a god on earth, but he wasn’t astonished by this at all. He had always held an admiration for this realm, finding it especially mysterious.
At the very least, he hadn’t heard of anyone who was a False God. It was a legendary existence that was at the same level as a Demon Immortal. The other thing that Qing Shui didn’t know was if he could reach the False God realm if he were to refine that powerful energy.
He kept getting the feeling that he wouldn’t!
It was because he felt that the False God realm wasn’t something which could be attained so easily!
8th heavenly layer…The 8th heavenly layer of the Ancient Strengthening Technique…Qing Shui felt that he might have to attain a breakthrough to the 8th heavenly layer of the Ancient Strengthening Technique before he could reach the False God realm. However, the doors to the 8th heavenly layer had remained tightly shut for all this time, with no signs of loosening up.
Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal!
Perhaps it could be the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. Qing Shui seemed to have understood something. It was only a guess, but he had a very strong feeling that he would only have a chance of attaining the 8th heavenly layer after the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal had leveled up.
“Forget it. I better work hard in my cultivation. Maybe everything will just fall into place when the time comes.”Qing Shui gently rubbed his head, which was starting to swell up from all these thoughts.
“Even if I can’t reach the 8th heavenly layer, I must try to absorb that powerful energy as soon as possible. Even if it is relying on the powering up of the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant’s abilities, I must reach the top of the world.”Qing Shui gritted his teeth as he seemed to have found his direction.
It was because of Di Chen, it was because he needed to look for that man. He might even have to look for the Demon Lord…
The Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant was a Heaven and Earth Battle Beast and its progress in the future would still be very fast. When the time came, with his unique physique, he would just need to refine the powers he got from the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant in order to increase his prowess by a lot.
Usually, he would only need to cultivate Taichi and train up his body. His bones and physique were considered quite good as it was. After all, his Nine Yang Golden Body was at the large success stage and he also had the Violet Golden Bloodline and other things.
Qing Shui only came out when the time he could use in the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal was up. The day was just starting to light up and he got up, planning to head out to do his morning practice. He saw from a distance that the girl was practicing.
She should have just woken up not long ago. When she saw Qing Shui, she greeted him with ‘Master’before she continued to practice her Taichi Fist.
As she swung her arms, she created a black-reddish whirlpool which exuded a terrifying engulfing power and a very rustic feeling. She was using the Duality Steps and seemed to be extremely familiar with the skill.
As the saying went, practice makes perfect. When one had achieved a level of mastery, one would be able to incorporate their own style. It was same for arts in Qing Shui’s previous life.
The girl had only picked up the Taichi and could be considered to have reached quite a good level. Qing Shui felt that he could teach her other things, but she mustn’t be lax in her Taichi training either since it was required to suppress that pernicious aura within her. It was basically something that mustn’t be discarded in her entire life.
They finished up their morning practice, but they didn’t just stop there. They merely finished up the Taichi Fist practice. Qing Shui started to teach her the Tiger Form. When one cultivated this to a great height, one would be able to establish a foothold in the world just with the Tiger Form alone.
The girl seemed to have a great interest in the Tiger Form as well. She learned it very seriously. When Qing Shui saw her occasional eagerness to learn, he felt happy as well. After all, she was just a kid. He hoped that she could become happy just like any other people, having people and things that she loved.
In the late afternoon, the four of them rode on the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant and headed for the deeper area of the Huge Desolated City. Qing Shui felt that a great boost to his courage now that he had the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. Even Yan Jinyu and the Seventh Princess felt a lot more courageous.
However, Qing Shui still let them work together to kill off the enemies for training and for gaining battle experience, It was also for them to practice the combination attacks. If they could acquire Qing Shui’s unique combination attacks, they would be able to work together with others even if they didn’t know of this. For example, in a chaotic battle situation, they could move through the crowd with ease, occasionally working with others to deal a killer move.
This was the effect that Qing Shui wanted. Therefore, he got them to work together and kept on practicing.
When they encounter powerful demonic beasts, Qing Shui would let the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant take action. He kept on getting Demon Nuclei.
There were many uses for Demon Nuclei. They could be used for forging tools, refining demons, setting up formations, or be taken by demonic beasts directly. Sometimes, they could even be taken directly by humans. However, there were many restrictions to having either demonic beasts or humans taking them directly. For example, demonic beasts could only eat the Demon Nuclei of demonic beasts which were of the same type. Furthermore, there were high risks and low chances of success.
It was even more dangerous for humans. Basically, no one would even dare to try. There were only records of legends which had been passed down. Demon Nuclei were generally used for refining demons, forging, and setting up formations.
They had also encountered two demonic beasts with the strength of about 400,000 stars. Qing Shui had dealt with the two of them himself. He first weakened them with his Emperor’s Qi and then engaged them in a long battle with his battle techniques. These two demonic beasts were incomparable to the Fire Dragon. Even an adolescent Fire Dragon was very powerful. if not for the fact that he had the Demon Refining Furnace, even if it was poisoned and blinded, Qing Shui might not have confidence in killing it. It was because he wasn’t sure if the poison could get into the Fire Dragon’s brain and if it would be lethal.
Dragon species had a strong resistance to poison. If it hadn’t been attacked through its eyes, thus inflicting damage to its brain, probably nothing would work.
If it was a mature dragon, Qing Shui’s Coldsteel Beads wouldn’t even be able to penetrate its eyelid, let alone its reverse scale. It would be able to kill Qing Shui instantly.
This was also the greatest level Qing Shui could manage to fight against at the moment. As long as it was a level he could manage, he wouldn’t let the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant handle it. He would only get its help to deal with those he was unable to manage.
The Huge Desolated City was too big. On the way, Qing Shui didn’t encounter that many people from the Heaven Secrets Academy. Qing Shui wasn’t sure how many of them had come but it was really nothing to put in several hundreds of thousand people into the Huge Desolated City.
The four of them gradually got closer to the extreme southwest location in Huge Desolated City. It was also the closest spot to theDesolate Mountain Regions, and the demonic beasts they encountered also got increasingly strong.
There also encountered ten demonic beasts once, each with a strength of close to 500,000 nimbus. Without any hesitation, Qing Shui let the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant use the Mighty Dragon Elephant's Recklessness to go on a killing spree. This was when he was glad he had the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant. If he didn’t have it, even escaping might pose a problem. If the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant wasn’t as strong as it was now, Qing Shui wouldn’t dare to enter so deep into area either.
The city walls had long been turned into flat land. There was not a single person to be seen. People who could reach this place were all strong experts, or at the very least, a group of core disciples or teachers.
Qing Shui now knew why there was a reason to get people to join groups. In such an environment, if they didn’t form teams, their progress would be very slow. Moreover, if it was just a few, over ten of them, or even up to a hundred of them encountered such a mission, they wouldn’t dare to come here either since there was no assurance for their lives.
After storing the Demon Nuclei, Qing Shui tossed the corpses into the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal as well. After all, there was plenty of space there and these corpses were filled with treasures. At the very least, they were useful to Qing Shui.
Qing Shui had just cleaned up the place when several tens of people appeared. When they saw Qing Shui, they flew over rapidly.
With his first glance, Qing Shui saw Tian Jiange at the back of the group. He still remained as handsome. Qing Shui hadn’t expected to meet Tian Jiange here and Tian Jiange was also very surprised to see Qing Shui here. However, he still smiled and walked over.
“We meet again. I knew that you’d come to the Heaven Secrets Academy. I just didn’t expect it to be so soon. Are we considered friends now?”Tian Jiange seemed very happy to see Qing Shui. He didn’t seem to be affected by his defeat under Qing Shui's hands previously.
“Of course. As long as you’re willing, we’re friends, true friends.”Qing Shui smiled and said. He then turned to look at the other people. They were all middle-aged men who seemed slightly older. However, Qing Shui knew that they were definitely not young. Those people who had the ability to come here were definitely not to be underestimated.
The Eldest Princess had said that people with the strength of 800,000 nimbus were Grade Four State Masters. Qing Shui wasn’t sure what the strength of a Peak Grade Four State Master was. The Eldest Princess didn’t say anything and Qing Shui didn’t know if she was aware of it either.
The people on the opposite side seemed to be very taken aback to see Qing Shui and the others here as well. They could sense that their abilities were definitely insufficient for them to be here. However, they didn’t ask but just looked on happily.
“Brother Qing Shui. It’s dangerous for you guys to be here. Why don’t you join us?”Tian Jiange frowned as he looked at them seriously and said.
This time around, Qing Shui smiled and agreed. He could see the sincerity in Tian Jiange’s eyes and that there were no other hidden intentions. Tian Jiange was either an intelligent person or a broadminded one.
“Alright, then I’ll trouble Brother.”Qing Shui wasn’t worried. With the Golden Scaled Dragon Elephant, he could now handle many situations.
Right now, Qing Shui found the feeling of being a Beast Tamer once again. He had a strong yearning to be able to stand behind a myriad of demonic beasts, and with a wave of his hand, send them forward like a wave of beasts. It would definitely be an exhilarated feeling!
Working together to kill demonic beasts, killing Qing Shui discovered as they chatted that Tian Jiange was a person with great magnanimity. Furthermore, he also got to know that Tian Jiange belonged to the other great faction in the Heaven Secrets Academy, the Lord Sect.
Lord Sect was a sect that was of equal standing with Saint Child Band and was also quite strong within the Heaven Secrets Academy. They had close to 100,000 members and Tian Jiange was one of Lord Sect’s elite disciples. Although he was only an elite disciple now, he would become a core disciple very soon.
