Chapter 8: Bloodthirsty State
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Logically speaking, Zhou Feng should hand over half of the Blood Pills to avoid conflict.
At the same time, he could keep a low profile. No one would pay attention to such a new disciple.
That sounded like Zhou Feng’s previous plan of keeping a low profile and cultivating the Gu Dao the entire time.
However, after pondering over it, Zhou Feng realized that this was a very stupid decision.!!
Firstly, all the new disciples were facing huge pressure.
According to the performance of the Bloodthirsty Gu, even if he had Gluttony (Passive), he could obtain additional Blood Qi.
However, if the Blood Pill was used as a cultivation resource, the future days of cultivation would definitely be very difficult.
Next was the issue of personal perception.
Showing weakness to the enemy was not omnipotent in Zhou Feng’s view.
For ordinary people, if you showed weakness, others would only think that you were easy to bully.
Later, when they needed something, they would think of a soft persimmon like you. They would pinch you from time to time.
Not to mention that the Tri-Gu Sect was an evil sect.
Endure humiliation? Endure!?
That would only make you lose more resources. Even if you were talented enough, it would be a waste if you didn’t have enough resources.
The perspective of a person from two lifetimes made Zhou Feng more rational, and his perspective on the problem was also more advanced.
Other than that, there was also the most important reason that supported him in doing so.
That was… the progress bar of the skill panel was actually full now!
That’s right! This time, you didn’t read wrong! The progress bar of the skill panel was full again!
Zhou Feng had clearly checked it earlier, but why was the progress bar full when he had just come out of the Merit Gathering Hall?
Unsurprisingly, Zhou Feng had obtained another passive skill.
It was precisely because of this passive skill that he had the confidence not to hand over half of his Blood Pills.
Self-Healing Constitution (Level 1): You are able to recover injuries slowly and autonomously. Appropriate medicine can speed up this self-healing process.
This was a passive type of recovery!
There was no trigger condition. As long as Zhou Feng was injured, it could be triggered all the time.
Moreover, the speed of self-healing would also be affected by the medicine.
The simple explanation was that if there was medicine, then the speed of self-healing would be faster.
Perhaps just the description did not make it sound so great. However, if it worked in tandem with Old Skin (Passive) he obtained previously, the situation would be different.
Old Skin’s role was to increase his Defense by 1 point every time he recovered from an injury, while his Self-Healing Constitution’s role was to speed up his injury recovery.
This unintentionally formed a small cooperation.
Thus, based on the previous trade-offs and his Self-Healing Constitution (Passive), Zhou Feng immediately made up his mind.
Zhou Feng acted as if he did not hear what Xiong Dan had said. He was still wearing a dull expression on his face.
In fact, he was already prepared, and his gaze was focused on Xiong Dan.
“Kid! Are you deaf?”
When Xiong Dan saw his expression, a blazing fire rose in his heart.
Were all the new disciples nowadays so arrogant? Not one, but two of them dared to ignore him!?
Faced with Xiong Dan’s questioning, Zhou Feng didn’t answer. He just walked forward silently, as if he couldn’t hear him at all.
“Amazing! Is this person really deaf?”
“It’s over! Xiong Dan is going crazy!”
“He’s going to be ruthless! Look!”
Many people in the surroundings were also shocked when they saw this scene.
These new disciples were too stubborn!
It seemed that they still hadn’t realized the cruelty of the inner sect.
Xiong Dan’s huge body displayed extreme speed. His somewhat heavy body rushed in front of Zhou Feng in the blink of an eye.
In an instant, it really looked like the Bear King had come out of the mountains.
A wave of murderous aura rushed straight at Zhou Feng.
As for Zhou Feng’s reaction, it was also swift. The first thing he did was to hug his head and slightly squat down.
Zhou Feng seemed to have suffered a heavy blow and spat out a mouthful of fresh blood.
This simple punch was too heavy, so heavy that he felt as if he had been hit by a truck.
But soon, the Bloodthirsty Gu in his body seemed to sense the host’s danger. Then, a stream of pure Blood Qi gushed out and weakened the intense pain greatly.
Surprisingly, Zhou Feng’s eyes turned blood red, while his rationality was instantly eroded.
The surrounding people did not know that the Bloodthirsty Gu in his body had already transformed.
Although it had not reached the level of a Rank 1 Gu, it possessed the Bloodthirst Skill.
The Tri-Gu Sect’s main cultivation method was feeding Gu.
Every time a Gu transformed, it would give the host many benefits.
Bloodthirst was the most basic skill of the Bloodthirsty Gu, and it could allow the host to enter the Bloodthirsty State.
After entering the Bloodthirsty State, the host’s rationality would instantly be reduced by half, while the strength of the body would increase in a straight line.
In game terms, it was a Berserker skill. When the Bloodthirsty State ended, the body would sustain a lot of damage.
At the same time, Bloodthirsty Gu would devour large amounts of Blood Qi.
This was equivalent to taking out a loan during a fight.
“Red eyes? This is the Bloodthirsty State? How is this possible!?”
“This is a new disciple?”
“The Bloodthirsty Gu is transforming so quickly? This is not right!”
“The Bloodthirsty Gu is actually willing to spit out so much pure Blood Qi!?”
Looking at Zhou Feng’s state,
The eyes of many old men who were watching the show almost popped out of their sockets when they noticed Zhou Feng’s state.
This was clearly the Bloodthirsty State, a skill that could only be mastered after the Bloodthirsty Gu underwent a transformation.
Moreover, it also required a good relationship with the Bloodthirsty Gu to be able to use it.
It must be known that many disciples who had entered the sect for a long time—even if their Bloodthirsty Gu had undergone several transformations—were still unable to enter the Bloodthirsty State.
The reason was that the Bloodthirsty Gu was unwilling.
Only those who were born with Gu affinity could easily enter the Bloodthirsty State.
“Bloodthirsty State? Genius?”
Xiong Dan’s eyes turned scarlet red.
A black shadow flashed past, and that huge bear-like body appeared in front of Zhou Feng once again.
Zhou Feng, who was in the Bloodthirsty State, was now fighting by instinct.
He raised his right hand to block the punch.
At the same time, a move appeared in his mind—Iron Mountain Leaning1!
Zhou Feng twisted his body and slammed his right shoulder into Xiong Dan’s chest.
A bone-breaking sound echoed!
Zhou Feng felt as if he had crashed into a city wall made of iron, and the bone in his right shoulder was slightly cracked.
The gap between their realms was still too big.
Xiong Dan was at the 9th Layer of Body Tempering realm, while Zhou Feng had just started to cultivate.
This attack was completely based on instinct. Although Xiong Dan didn’t react at all, he didn’t suffer much damage. He only felt a stuffy feeling in his chest.
Then, he sent Zhou Feng flying with another punch.
However, this time, Zhou Feng didn’t feel much pain. In his Bloodthirsty State, even the pain seemed to be reduced.
Zhou Feng’s slightly red eyes stared intently at Xiong Dan.
At the same time, he took out the Blood Pills that he had just received and consumed three in one bite.
His originally dried-up Blood Qi reserve was once again filled up!
