Chapter 1719 Huge business opportunityThe consecutive prompts made Song Shuhang a little worried.
He wasn’t worried about the heavenly tribulation changing even more… Faced with Uncle Heavenly Tribulation, he basically had nothing to be afraid of. He had met him once every month, and he felt that he already had a good relationship with him.
What he was worried about was whether or not this heavenly tribulation would involve unrelated people.
It’s alright if I’m reckless and it brings me trouble, but I would much rather have it so that none of my fellow daoists get hurt, Song Shuhang thought to himself.
If his ‘recklessness’ could end up causing harm to the other fellow daoists in the group, he would definitely restrain himself.
Song Shuhang patted his cheek, and said to himself, “C’mon! Let’s get through this heavenly tribulation.”
I need to stop thinking about bullying Uncle Heavenly Tribulation so that no other issues arise.
It might have been that the heavenly tribulation had read Song Shuhang’s thoughts, because the huge heavenly tribulation cloud in the air suddenly exploded.
Soon after, a huge inverted pyramid emerged from the exploding clouds, and came smashing down towards Song Shuhang.
This inverted pyramid was a ‘magical-weapon-type heavenly tribulation’, and its power was already close to the Seventh Stage. And this magical treasure was not of the ‘cultivation system’. Lightning and thunder could be seen and heard atop the inverted pyramid, along with screams of death and curses. Not only that, the medicine-related heavenly tribulation was also part of this attack; there was a blood-drawing needle attached to the ‘inverted pyramid’.
Did it add a ‘blood-sucking’ attribute to the pyramid?
Song Shuhang sighed, and said, “The heavenly tribulation is getting increasingly unreasonable.”
The power of this ‘inverted pyramid’ had already exceeded the power that the ‘last wave’ of a Sixth Stage heavenly tribulation should have. The main reason for this should be the steel manifestation, which had gotten involved in the Heavenly Emperor’s heavenly tribulation.
Far from him, Fairy Creation spat out Scarlet Heaven Sword. She lifted the sword, retreated quickly, and then withdrew for a certain distance to avoid getting involved in the pyramid heavenly tribulation.
“Triple-Layered Virtuous Palace Projection!” Fairy @#%× shouted. This was the limit of what she could dish out right now.
Behind Song Shuhang, his ghost spirit appeared.
A heavy book appeared in the ghost spirit’s hand, and she opened it.
She flipped through the book, and finally turned to a page with a chain. The chain stretched upward, wrapped around the inverted pyramid heavenly tribulation, and slowed its speed.
“It’s your turn to come out, Holy Sword.” Song Shuhang stretched out his hand, and grabbed the Holy Sword.
The Holy Sword of the End obeyed Song Shuhang, floated up, aimed at the inverted pyramid in the sky, and shot straight at it.
In the air, the power of the Dragon Network poured into the ‘Holy Sword of the End’, recharging its energy.
The sword light flashed, and the inverted pyramid collapsed.
Before it reached the ground, the pyramid was struck by the ‘aura of doom’ of the Holy Sword, turning into fragments.
After the fragments fell, they were blocked by the virtuous lamia’s Virtuous Palace Projection.
After the pyramid-shaped heavenly tribulation was torn apart, the sky was completely clear, and the tribulation clouds dissipated.
Song Shuhang wondered, “It’s over?”
Considering the momentum of the heavenly tribulation just now, it can’t be that it was only going to send out one wave, right?
While he was in thought, the ‘ancient nether dragon soul’ in Song Shuhang’s seventh dantian began to change.
The ‘ancient nether dragon soul’, which was originally a Lustrous Golden Core, had begun to slowly melt away at this time.
Song Shuhang wondered, “Is my golden core transforming into a lake?”
He raised his head and looked at the sky. Although the tribulation clouds had disappeared, the pressure of the heavenly tribulation had yet to dissipate. This meant that his heavenly tribulation was still not over.
Song Shuhang remarked, “The heavenly tribulation is not over, yet my Spirit Lake has already begun forming…”
The ancient nether dragon soul had completely melted away and turned into a Spirit Lake, filling the entire small dantian.
Afterward, the Spirit Lake began to increase in depth step by step.
Whether it was a monster cultivator, a demon cultivator, or a human cultivator, when they reached this step, what came after was about the same.
For cultivators, the area their Spirit Lake was able to cover was deeply related to their Golden Core. The depth of their Spirit Lake was based on the number of ‘dragon patterns’ they had.
The Spirit Lake had a total of nine layers of depth, and once it formed, it would no longer change in the future. And the depth should have already been decided when they were in the Fifth Stage Golden Core Realm.
It wasn’t empty talk when people claimed that the golden core set one’s path.
Song Shuhang was rather curious about how many layers the Spirit Lake his ‘ancient nether dragon soul’ would be able to condense.
This was particularly because the ancient nether dragon soul was not a cultivator’s golden core, so it did not have any dragon patterns on it.
While he was thinking about this, the Spirit Lake was deepening step by step.
Two layers, three layers… six layers, seven layers… all the way to the ninth layer of depth.
Song Shuhang softly said, “It’s better than I thought.”
He always felt that as long as he could get seven dragon patterns and seven layers of depth, that was fine for him. But now, the ancient nether dragon soul was able to reach a depth beyond what he had expected, reaching the ninth layer in one go.
And so, a nine-layers-deep Spirit Lake was formed. Due to the limited area of the ‘small dantian’, the area of this Spirit Lake was slightly smaller than an ordinary Sixth Stage True Monarch’s Spirit Lake.
However, with regard to the area problem, as Song Shuhang’s cultivation increased, it should improve as well.
The depth was what symbolized one’s potential, and was the most important thing.
As the Spirit Lake took shape, the ‘Golden Core to Spirit Lake’ transformation entered its final stage.
The Golden Core Composition on the golden core materialized and appeared in the Spirit Lake.
The Golden Core Composition [The Connected World] represented the ‘Virtuous Network’. The composition transformed into countless points and lines, filling every corner of the Spirit Lake.
The more complex the Golden Core Composition was, the larger the structure it would have when it materialized.
These materialized ‘Golden Core Compositions’ were called ‘Lake Souls’ by cultivators, and they were akin to the souls of the Spirit Lakes.
After the Lake Soul was formed, it would continuously release a mysterious, energy-like matter in the cultivator’s Spirit Lake. This energy-like matter couldn’t enhance a cultivator’s combat power, but it was able to nourish and strengthen magical treasures. Cultivators called it ‘weapon essence’.
A cultivator could place their magical treasures in their Spirit Lake, and use the ‘weapon essence’ to nourish and strengthen them. This was especially so for life-bound magical treasures as the nourishing effect towards them was even better.
The more complex the ‘Golden Core Composition’ was, the stronger the Lake Soul produced, and the greater the quantity of ‘weapon essence’ that could be secreted.
Great, I think this is a good way to make money. Song Shuhang’s eyes suddenly lit up.
Can I use this ‘magical treasure nourishing’ method to improve other people’s magical treasures, and then charge them a certain fee? After all, I may end up having eight Spirit Lakes in the future, and each Spirit Lake could end up being nine layers deep. Even if I do have the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Combined Magical Treasure, it won’t be able to take all that space. How wasteful would it be if I left them doing nothing? So why not rent them out to nourish other people’s magical treasures?
Fellow daoists who were extremely short on money could always see business opportunities from the small things in their lives.
After I get a few more Spirit Lakes, should I go to the ‘Daily Cultivator’ to register for advertisements and solicit investments?
While Song Shuhang was fantasizing about making money, his Spirit Lake had finished forming.
The last node of the ‘Lake Soul’ was also the central one. It condensed into a miniature Song Shuhang.
This miniature Song Shuhang had a body covered in dragon scales, a pair of dragon horns on his head, dragon wings on his back, as well as a huge whale tail.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Isn’t this my small golden core, the ‘ancient nether dragon soul’?
