Ancient Strengthening Technique - Chapter 1582
AST 1582 - Sunset Palace, Obtaining the divine Heavenly Technique Jade Kirin Dragon Vessel
Qing Shui had already discovered Muyun Qingge's arrival and turned his head over to greet her . He actually felt a bit awkward as he'd seen her body when he'd healed her before and had even touched her . There wasn't any other alternative at that time, but some affairs were already done and nothing could change that .
Yiye Jiange also stopped after seeing Muyun Qingge . She happily went over to her and grasped her hand, ’’How come elder sis is here? Are you bothered about anything?’’
’’Did you forget your elder sis after getting a husband?’’ Muyun Qingge teased her .
Yiye Jiange smiled at her and seeing her unnatural appearance, she asked, ’’What? Are you envious?’’
Muyun Qingge shook her head in disdain, ’’Men are no good . I'll never try to find a man . ’’
Her words were true to her, but when she said them, a silhouette appeared in her mind . This silhouette kept becoming clearer and finally changed into Qing Shui, which caused chaos in her heart . That feeling was quite terrible, an indescribable pain .
’’Bis sis, I've never offended you . ’’ Qing Shui came over laughing .
Muyun Qingge looked at Qing Shui . The longer she associated with him, the more this man gave her that inexplicable feeling . It was like the spring wind . It didn't seem dazzling but still had an inexplicable feeling that would submerge one in it little by little .
’’Great Guardian, can you tell me how many women you have? If you only have Jiange, then this rank won't be yours . How about it?’’ Muyun Qingge was set on the fact that Qing Shui had several women .
Qing Shui almost choked and gave an embarrassed laugh, ’’Women are indeed too narrow minded . You can't be so careless in evaluating a man . A man with several women proves his excellence . It's for sure that such a man is a good man . ’’
’’Don't you realize that your words are letting our Jiange down? You speak about equality of the se*es, but can you allow your woman to do the same as you?’’
Muyun Qingge's calm words let Qing Shui speechless . Yiye Jiange laughed at this time, saying, ’’What are you even debating? Is there a need to do this? You're both too extreme . ’’
’’Alright, let's change the topic . Elder sis, is something bothering you?’’ Yiye Jiange asked to shift the subject .
Muyun Qingge nodded with a smile . She wasn't targeting Qing Shui and really, she didn't personally feel bothered . Actually, her heart was conflicted . She felt that Qing Shui was a good man, and that it'd be perfect if he only had a single woman .
Qing Shui originally still wanted to reason with her but he knew that it was impossible to get her approval no matter what was said in regards to this matter . It was already quite good that she wasn't disgusted by this .
Qing Shui felt that without the use of any irregular means, it was possible for a woman to like a man . And if there were many who liked the man, it meant that the man ought to have a lot of positive aspects . If not, even if one case could be considered a fluke, all of the rest couldn't be the same, right?
The three of them sat down in the living room . Muyun Qingge looked at Qing Shui and he also looked at her . Seeing that she was looking at him, Qing Shui grinned, revealing his pearly teeth .
Muyun Qingge blushed and unnaturally turned her head away . She remembered the scene of Qing Shui healing her . Yiye Jiange had already prepared the tea and picked up a cup to sip .
’’I've already obtained some news . The patron behind the Sea Dragon Palace and the Vicious Shark Palace is the Ice Ocean Domain's Sunset Palace . They also should have obtained the news by now . It's still unclear whether they'll take action for the Sea Dragon Palace and the Vicious Shark Palace . ’’ Muyun Qingge looked at Qing Shui as she spoke .
Qing Shui expected a large power to be behind the Sea Dragon Palace and the Vicious Shark Palace, but he didn't think they'd come so soon . Based on the Beastmen's nature, they absolutely wouldn't leave this matter be, so they could only prepare well to guard against them .
’’Do you have information regarding the Sunset Palace?’’ Qing Shui asked . Being underwater was different from being on land . It was more dangerous and there were many organisms here, some with giant bodies .
’’We only know that Mermen exist in Sunset Palace as well as some Ancient Battle Crabs . ’’ Muyun Qingge looked at Qing Shui strangely .
From her expression, Qing Shui could feel that she knew he was aware of her identity . It's not like her identity was a secret, it was just that everyone only knew that she was the descendant of a Drakaina .
’’We can only resist if they come to attack . We should first raise our strength . ’’ Qing Shui was somewhat worried, but there was no point in worrying too much . He had confidence in himself . If a divine grade expert didn't appear, Qing Shui felt that he could repel them back .
’’Here are a few formations . You can tell your trusted aides to begin training their troops . Perhaps these will come into use . ’’ Qing Shui gave the formations he had prepared earlier to Yiye Jiange and Muyun Qingge .
Yiye Jiange didn't show any shock, but Muyun Qingge was dazed . She accepted them and nodded towards Qing Shui, ’’These are quite important for the Sea King's Palace, but none of us know how they work . ’’
’’That's simple . Jiange knows how . You can try researching . Just come ask me if you don't understand anything . ’’
Qing Shui roamed the surroundings of the Sea King's Palace aimlessly . Originally, under regular circumstances, he should've left the Sea King's Palace earlier, but the appearance of the Sunset Palace gave him no choice but to stay behind .
A long time had already passed since he had arrived in the Haohan Continent . He wanted to go back . All of his family members were in the Dancing Phoenix Continent . Yehuang Guwu was also there . It was only a thought for him to consider returning, but the journey back was long .
Qing Shui thought of Canghai Mingyue, Huoyun Liu-Li, Zhu Qing, Yun Duan, Di Qing, Di Chen...
He also thought about Tantai Xuan and Tantai Lingyan . He felt strange when he thought about that crystal, ice cold woman, Tantai Lingyan . He wondered whether the little bit of familiarity he had developed with her with much difficulty would reset after parting from her for so long .
Tantai Xuan also left Qing Shui helpless . This woman kept her distance . He shook his head . Anyways, life was long for cultivators and he could only make preparations in advance, as Tantai Lingyan had hatred towards the Five Tiger Immortal Sect . Else, he'd be stuck in a dilemma .
Paragon Water Shield!
Qing Shui had already used the Paragon Water Shield three times . Each time, he travelled 50,000 kilometres . This distance was nothing within the sea domains . They were filled with powers . The disappearance of the Sea Dragon Palace and the Vicious Shark Palace had increased the area under the rule of the of the Sea King's Palace exponentially . Quite a lot of the members of the Sea King's Palace were currently searching for treasures or immortal herbs in the Sea Dragon Palace and the Vicious Shark Palace's areas .
Suddenly, Qing Shui spotted a golden little fish flit by . Qing Shui wasn't interested in its golden light as there were a lot of different coloured beautiful fishes underwater, but the speed of this foot-long fish was quite irregular . It also released an especially intense spiritual aura .
Qing Shui was interested in it and followed it . With his speed, it was easy for him to catch up to this fish, but he had nothing to do and also didn't desire to catch it .
Qing Shui travelled within the water following after it . Speed really seemed to be its elemental forte . Qing Shui was curious about how such a little thing could possess so much energy .
There were quite a lot of mountain ranges underwater . Qing Shui followed after the golden fish and passed through a valley and then a 'tunnel' . After going through it, a wriggling giant mountain range appeared before his eyes .
Half an hour after entering the mountain range, the little fish in front of Qing Shui suddenly disappeared . Qing Shui was dazed and quickly sped up . He discovered that there was a barrier in place that was concealed quite well . It was also quite small, around 2 meters in radius and was sheltered by the surrounding mountain rocks, water plants, vines and so on .
Qing Shui was excited and immediately went inside .
Spiritual Qi hit him right in the face as soon as he entered inside...
Qing Shui discovered the golden fish here . Although there wasn't any water, it was still swimming...
It seemed as if it was flying . Though it was a strange matter, Qing Shui wasn't shocked by this .
Qing Shui didn't follow it and rather sized up the place . There were four pillars here that he couldn't tell were natural or artificial . They seemed natural but again gave a feeling as if they were a masterpiece .
A huge suppression force manifested when Qing Shui entered the inner palace hall . Qing Shui was astonished and took a look inside . There was a God's Statue inside, but this one was different from the one he saw before . This God's Statue had a human's torso, a dragon's tail, and a jade lion's head which rather resembled a qilin's head . The qilin's head in Qing head in Qing Shui's previous life looked just like this and there was even a saying that the qilin's head was actually a lion's head...
That terrible suppression was coming from here .
Suddenly, a large aura locked onto Qing Shui . He merely protected himself from it and didn't resist it . He knew it the statue's divine Sense .
It was a powerful divine Sense . It lasted for a quarter of a minute and then a thought suddenly transmitted itself, ’’Human brought here by fate, since you've arrived here, it means that there's karma between us . Take this gift!’’
A bit of information directly reached Qing Shui's mind . The amount of information wasn't that much . After absorbing it, Qing Shui looked at this God's Statue with amazement . He hadn't expected that there would be a remnant divine Sense left behind by a divine grade expert here .
This was the Jade Kirin Dragon Vessel .
The information passed to him revealed that it was a passive Paragon Heavenly Technique .
Jade Kirin Dragon Vessel Overlord: Increases the might of passive blows and all battle skills by one-fold . Raises endurance by three times . Raises resistance towards evil skills by three times, effective against spirit and illusion type skills, poison type skills . A passive Paragon Heavenly Technique . Zero consumption . Cannot be upgraded . Living is pointless if one is not like an Overlord .
Qing Shui looked at the God's Statue and didn't come back to his senses for a long time . He always felt that he possessed very few heavenly techniques and now he had suddenly obtained such a good Paragon Heavenly Technique . This Jade Kirin Dragon Vessel Heavenly Technique was really tyrannical and although it couldn't be upgraded, it made him much more powerful . All the other Heavenly Technique battle skills Qing Shui possessed combined could barely catch up with this Jade Kirin Dragon Vessel Heavenly Technique .
Qing Shui felt an explosive increment in his strength after obtaining the Jade Kirin Dragon Vessel Heavenly Technique . His strength and defence had both increased one-fold . This was a Heavenly Technique which targeted battle skills and although it didn't increase his strength, it raised his endurance . For example, the Nine Stances of the Ancient divine Battle Technique's might had increased one-fold from before, his covert strength had also increased one-fold, the Paragon Battle Armor's might by one-fold and so on . . .
Qing Shui felt now that he was absolutely the number one existence under the divine Grade .
