Chapter 927: Magnificent Forging Skills
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
In the Heaven Suppression Fortress, the Heavens Kirin Carriage slowly moved out of the fortress gate while Hundun Yu sat at the door of the carriage with Fu Li controlling the horses.
Zhong Yue and Yin Fanxuan, on the other hand, were sitting in the carriage as they all headed straight towards Zi Wei Imperial Star.
This time, there were only four of them. Zhong Yue had no choice but to bring Hundun Yu along with them; after presenting the fruit to Zhong Yue, this guy had glued himself to Zhong Yue with the Fusang Branch in his hand. Luckily, this big guy’s quiet behavior made him easy to ignore.
As for Fu Li, with his powerful strength, he was brought along as a bodyguard to protect Zhong Yue and Yin Fanxuan as the trip to the Heaven Court was bound to be a dangerous one.
Yin Fanxuan had requested to tag along; the lady master of the King’s Palace was tired of staying in the fortress and was eager to meet other heroes.
Right now, as long as there were no unreasonably strong gods like Imperial Emperor Xian Tian attacking the fortress, the fortress would be fine even if Zhong Yue was absent. Fu Qizhi, Fu Yanshan and the others were sufficient to defend it.
The Heavens Kirin Carriage’s defense was extraordinary; ordinary Creators would not be able to breach it.
They steadily moved towards their destination. Throughout the journey, Zhong Yue looked towards the outside, only to see the many sacred grounds still at war with each other. The situation was still as chaotic as it was.
But the chaos did not spread to the monarch and sovereign races, which is not enough. They are after all, extremely rich in every aspect after years of consolidating their powerbase.
Zhong Yue sat back down and with a thought, six light wheels emerged and started rotating around him while the [Celestial Demon Tai Chi Art] appeared, accompanied by the sound of mysterious Dao languages.
He was the one who created the [Celestial Demon Tai Chi Art] and merged together the Celestial Dao, Demon Dao, and the Yin and Yang Daos. But now, it was no longer suitable to cultivate.
Right now, he had achieved cultivating eight innate Daos; the Celestial, Demon, Yin and Yang, Lightning, Time, Space, and Yi. But the [Celestial Demon Tai Chi Art] only contained four Daos, which resulted in a situation where when he practiced [Celestial Demon Tai Chi Art], the other four Daos were unable to be cultivated at the same time.
When he cultivated Innate Lightning, he had to cultivate the [Desolate Lightning Heavenly Furnace Scripture]; when cultivating the Time and Space Dao, he has to cultivate the [Time Light Spatial Crystal Mystic Scripture]; when cultivating the Innate Yi Dao, he has to cultivate the [Fu Min Dao Venerate Heart Sutra Scripture].
He was only able to cultivate the eight Daos by cultivating four separate arts. Which meant that Zhong Yue had to spend four times the effort compared to others in order to grow the eight Daos together.
This greatly hindered his cultivation speed.
Yin Fanxuan’s cultivation was extremely fast, far surpassing Zhong Yue’s. Apart from the Innate Saint Spirit Body’s powerful effect, another reason was that her art only needed to cultivate one type. What she cultivated was not the traditional monarch level heritage of the Yinkang Clan but the [Twenty-Four Secular Worlds Mystic Art] that she created on her own.
And that was also why Zhong Yue did not dare to say he was able to win against Yin Fanxuan for certain even after his considerable growth.
At this moment, Yin Fanxuan was already at the peak of a Heavenly Deity, her speed was even crazier than Zhong Yue’s and the most insane part was that the [Twenty-Four Secular Worlds Mystic Art] meant that she was cultivating 24 Daos, which was extremely insane that she was able to cultivate them all at such high speed.
She too, had mastered quite an extent of the innate Deity Kings’ Dao languages and the amount Zhong Yue mastered was only 30 more than hers.
All of this explained just how strong this lady was.
If she also consumed the Chaos Divine Fruit and dueled with Zhong Yue, she would destroy Zhong Yue effortlessly.
Hence, Zhong Yue very much wanted to get another Chaos Divine Fruit for her as he was very curious to see how strong she would be after consuming the fruit. But unfortunately, such a chance was very rare.
I need to merge my arts together into one to increase my cultivation speed.
Zhong Yue found himself in a quandary as the [Fu Min Dao Venerate Heart Sutra Scripture], [Time Light Spatial Crystal Mystic Scripture], and [Desolate Lightning Heavenly Furnace Scripture] were all monarch level arts that required almost an infinite amount of time to completely master, let alone merge together. It was even harder than he could ever imagine.
There were more than 100 arts of comparable quality in Xin Huo’s brain and among the many Heavenly Monarch arts, he only had Xin Huo teach him two of them because he knew that cultivating four arts at once was extremely difficult. If he was greedy and asked for all the cultivation arts, there would be no way Zhong Yue could improve anymore.
He then continued to cultivate in the carriage as they proceeded to the Heaven Court. At the same time, he tried to calculate a way to merge the four arts together. And to his shock, after consuming the Chaos Divine Fruit, his cultivation speed has been increased to a terrifying level!
As he activated his arts, his cultivation level increased tremendously, his totem Dao strengthened and widened and things that he did not understand before were now crystal clear to him!
Zhong Yue changed into another art and to his joy, the result was the same!
Now, cultivating four types of arts was even quicker than cultivating one art before!
His cultivation level had increased tremendously, his Daos fortified and his energy surged across his six great secret realms. Within the secret realms, the Dao totem patterns evolved into the skies, earth, sun, moon, stars, mountains, rivers, lakes, oceans, exotic creatures, dragons, and phoenixes.
He even vaguely felt that among these totem patterns that flew into the secret realms, there were some Daos recorded within the [Fu Min Dao Venerate Heart Sutra Scripture] that did not belong to the Six Paths.
Zhong Yue activated the [Fu Min Dao Venerate Heart Sutra Scripture] and without him knowing, he had already cultivated these abnormal Dao totem patterns. These totem patterns were incompatible with the six great secret realms and they flew right into the closed secret realms, making them very likely to be the power nourished in these secret realms.
His Time and Space Dao were also constantly nourishing the Space Secret Realm and the Time Secret Realm hidden in his body, allowing them to grow stronger.
However, as long as these secret realms were not opened, using the power in them would only be a fat dream for him.
The Heavens Kirin Carriage traveled at a constant pace but even so, its speed was so still fast, enough to compare with Zhong Yue’s flying speed. As time passed, they were getting closer and closer to the Imperial Star.
Zhong Yue then took this rare peaceful time to cultivate with Yin Fanxuan; in this period of time, he had improved greatly and he was at least fifty percent stronger than before.
His Innate Secular World was refined to a very high level; in the Innate Secular World, Zhong Yue separated about 10,000 himself out, continuously trying to find a way to merge the four ultimate arts. Inside the Secular World were endless totem patterns formed from the Yin and Yang Lines while the Dao languages rumbled.
Zhong Yue glanced at Yin Fanxuan who was also dwelled in her cultivation as he thought, Now that my strength increased by fifty percent, will I be able to win against her?
Just as he was thinking about his chances, a loud hammering sound came from nowhere and it felt like the hammered right on their heart.
Then Fu Li was heard shouting, “My lord, there are two old man smithing right at our path!”
Zhong Yue opened the door and when he looked forward, he saw a blazing divine fire that lit up half of the sky, the fire in the furnace was brighter than a billion suns; two shirtless old men were setting up the fire and hammering a piece of metal in it.
As the divine fire raged, the space around the furnace started melting down but even so, the piece of metal was still too stubborn to be melted.
“Halt.” said Zhong Yue softly.
The Heavens Kirin Carriage stopped gradually and Zhong Yue walked out of the carriage with Fu Li and Hundun Yu behind him. In the carriage, Yin Fanxuan became uneasy upon hearing smithing noise, causing her to awake from her cultivation. She also walked out of the carriage.
As Yin Fanxuan looked at the two old men in surprise, Zhong Yue was already at the furnace, observing the smithing, only to notice that the old man who was smithing used a clamp to hold the metal piece and was hammering it strongly with a massive hammer.
Zhong Yue was moved by this as when the hammer landed, it turned into wonderful Dao techniques; the hammer felt like it had created a whole new world and within this world was a giant equipped with a massive hammer, slamming it everywhere with a hammer technique so wonderful and so powerful that it left Zhong Yue breathless.
Fu Li was also shaken by this; with his rich experience and knowledge, especially as an expert in body techniques, Fu Li saw much more than Zhong Yue in the old man’s hammer technique; the flow in his blood, energy, movements in his muscle and veins were just like a gushing water of Dao that was extremely wonderful.
Yin Fanxuan also saw the wonders in this hammering and she quietly tried to decipher the hidden wonder behind it.
Zhong Yue then looked towards the other old man who was controlling the fire, who seemed to have been annoyed at how inefficient the bellow was. He threw it aside and started blowing wind into the furnace with his mouth. In an instant, the already raging fire turned even more aggressive like it was going to melt everything!
That breath contained endless changes of wind and fire, and the two Daos were all at the peak!
Such wind, such fire! Such an excellent hammer technique!
While everyone was amazed by the hammering, there was an odd one; Hundun Yu stood there with a confused expression, holding the tree branch in his hand and remained unwavering at the techniques displayed by the two old men.
As the hammer slammed into the metal on the anvil, the loud din shuddered their Yuan Shen and mortal body.
“What are you looking at!”
Suddenly the old man with the hammer glanced at them and smirked, “Are you planning to steal our techniques? Do you think I am powerless to resist?”
Zhong Yue’s eyes blinked and he laughed, “Steal? I think you are both too arrogant!”
The old man who was blowing wind into the furnace stopped and he smiled, “If you are not here to steal our forging techniques, then you must be trying to steal the technique of how we forge items? Either way, you deserve nothing more than death alone! I will blow you into dust with my breath!”
Yin Fanxuan immediately said, “Darling, let’s go, there is no need to pay attention to them.”
Zhong Yue shook his head and said, “The two old seniors’ forging noises had formed a Greater Six Paths Reincarnation. No matter where we go, we are still walking within the Six Paths Reincarnation and we will still run into them in the end. At that time, they will repeat that we are trying to steal their techniques and they will kill us for that.”
As Zhong Yue explained, the two old men were shocked and they both suddenly laughed, “Left King Yi, Mister Yi of the Xian Tian Palace is indeed impressive! To be able to see through us forging a Six Paths Reincarnation dimension with the Dao language, you are much better than the sissy Mu Xiantian! Impressive!”
Zhong Yue replied with a smile, “Dear seniors, I’d like to smith and forge an item. If my technique is better than yours, the item I forged is better, will you still try to kill us?”
The two old men exchanged a look and they laughed, “Alright, if you can really beat us, you may leave but if you lose, we will kill you!”
“Here, the hammer!” shouted the old man with the hammer as he handed his hammer to Zhong Yue.
