After Duanmu Xingling left, Zhang Ruochen pulled himself together. He did not want to think about her identity anymore. He took out the Time and Space Spinel and entered the internal space, continuing to practice Thirteen Swords Techniques of Soul Chasing.
The first three sword moves, Haunting Septuple Kill, Soul-breaking Windwhisper and Soul-repose Shadowing, had been practiced into the Perfection of Martial Arts.
Next, he needed to practice the rest of the 10 sword techniques.
Zhang Ruochen held the Violet Thunder Sword in his hands. The Heart of the Sword in the Qi Sea started to spin and turned into a small human shadow.
While the human shadow applied the sword technique, Zhang Ruochen also entered the realm of Heart Integrated into Sword. The sword in his hand waved along as well.
Zhang Ruochen took four days to practice all the sword techniques into the Perfection of Martial Arts.
The power of his sword technique seemed to have increased a level.
"Now only one day has passed outside. The second round of the exam shouldn't have started yet."
"I have reached the Advanced Stage of the Heaven Realm, I wonder what kind of power I have now."
When Zhang Ruochen had reached the Advanced Stage of the Heaven Realm, he did not have a chance to check on his strength. He could finally find out now.
Zhang Ruochen closed his eyes and emerged his Martial Soul into the Qi Sea. A pigeon egg sized liquid Ball of Vital Essence floated in the center of the Qi Sea.
Vaguely, many sacred illusory images of gods floated on the surface of the Ball of Vital Essence. They were flying around in a certain pattern.
He circulated the Scripture of Emperor Ming's Empyrean, and the Ball of Vital Essence immediately started to spin quickly and released streaks of Genuine Qi. The streaks of Qi separated into 36 lines and gushed into 36 Meridians in his body.
At the same time, a layer of green light was glowing on the surface of Zhang Ruochen's body. It then rushed out of his body and turned into a layer of Celestial Bodyshield with a diameter of about ten meters.
Even if an ordinary warrior in the Completion of Heaven Realm struck out with his full strength, he would not be able to so much as leave a scratch on the Celestial Bodyshield.
Zhang Ruochen mobilized his Genuine Qi into the Vessel of Spiritual Blood and woke the gold Dragon Pearl in his heart.
"Divine Dragon Transformation."
There was a deep dragon's roar from the Dragon Pearl.
A stroke of golden dragon Qi was released from his heart. It rushed into Zhang Ruochen's limbs and head.
Zhang Ruochen shuddered. He felt his body, limbs, and head get pulled by an invisible power, as if he was being ripped apart.
Zhang Ruochen felt the danger. He immediately put away the Genuine Qi and the force finally dissipated. A sharp pain dashed to his throat from his stomach, and blood spurted out of his mouth.
"It is indeed not easy to pull off the Divine Dragon Transformation."
On the Stairway to Heaven, Zhang Ruochen displayed the Divine Dragon Transformation and turned into a Golden Dragon. He easily defeated disciples of the four powerful Saint families like he was breaking a dead branch from a tree.
Hence, the great power of the Divine Dragon Transformation was obvious.
However, the Divine Dragon Transformation was a martial technique of the Superior class of the Ghost Level. Zhang Ruochen had never practiced it before. His only guess was that it may be related to the Dragon and Elephant Prajna Palm.
If Zhang Ruochen could freely display the Divine Dragon Transformation, how powerful would he be?
He wanted to try again.
Zhang Ruochen became more cautious in case he hurt himself before he could even display the Divine Dragon Transformation.
But he failed again.
With the last experience, Zhang Ruochen was not injured this time.
Then, he tried again for the third time.
This time, while Zhang Ruochen was striking out the Dragon and Elephant Prajna Palm, he also infused the Genuine Qi into the Dragon Pearl. He used both the power of the Dragon and Elephant Prajna Palm to drive the power of the Dragon Pearl.
It was a pity that he failed again.
After failing for 78 times, he finally made some progress.
Zhang Ruochen realized that he could bring out part of the power of the Dragon Pearl if he quickly struck out the first five palms of the Dragon and Elephant Prajna Palm in a row. There would be a layer of golden Dragon Scale formed on his body.
"Dragon in the Sky!"
"Dragon and Elephant Returning to Earth!"
"Dragon Shape and Elephant Shadow."
"Nine-folds of the Elephant Power."
After striking out the fifth palm, Zhang Ruochen felt a great power rushing out of his body.
There was light emitting from the surface of his skin. Nail-sized golden Dragon Scales grew out and covered his whole body. Even his scalp and nails turned into scales too.
It was not the full power of the Divine Dragon Transformation that was brought out, but it greatly increased Zhang Ruochen's power and defensive power. He turned into a half-dragon and half-human form.
"It is too difficult to bring out the Divine Dragon Transformation. I probably won't succeed even if I try for 1,000 times."
"Maybe only when I meet danger, will I be able to display the Divine Dragon Transformation under great pressure and with the power of the Dragon and Elephant Prajna Palm."
Of course, bringing out one layer of the armour of the Dragon Scale had already greatly increased Zhang Ruochen's strength.
According to Zhang Ruochen's prediction, if he successfully practiced the sixth palm of the Dragon and Elephant Prajna Palm, Divine Dragon's Steal, he could bring out even more dragon power.
The probability of displaying the Divine Dragon Transformation would also be greatly increased.
Zhang Ruochen had just reached the Advanced Stage of the Heaven Realm, there is no way he could reach the Dawn State of the Heaven Realm overnight.
If he wanted to increase his power before the third round of the exam, he could only practice the sixth palm of the Dragon and Elephant Prajna Palm.
If he could successfully master the sixth palm, his Dragon and Elephant Prajna Palm would become a martial technique of the Superior class of the Spiritual Stage. With the profound of the Dragon and Elephant Prajna Palm, even if he just practiced the sixth palm, he could display the power of the martial technique of the Inferior Class Ghost Level.
"Divine Dragon's Steal."
Zhang Ruochen stood in the center of the internal space of the Time and Space Spinel. His legs slightly bent and formed a dragon-shaped horse stance. His hands looked like palms and claws. Almost all of his bones were connected together, making clicking sound of bones clashing together.
When his palms struck out, there were streaks of flying light like lightning flying out of the center of his palms.
An illusory image of Divine Dragon more than ten meters long flew out of the center of his palm. It spun around him once and then disappeared.
Divine Dragon's Steal mostly emphasized on the palm power. It could transform the Genuine Qi into the power of Thunderbolt. It was like a Divine Dragon tiding over a disaster in the thunderbolt.
Because Zhang Ruochen swallowed the Dragon Pearl, it was easier for him to practice the Dragon and Elephant Prajna Palm and totally release the momentum of his palm power.
"Both are martial techniques of the Superior Class of the Spiritual Stage, the sixth palm of the Dragon and Elephant Prajna Palm is more profound than the Thirteen Swords Techniques of Soul Chasing. Its power is more formidable, and it is extremely virile and masculine. At the same time, it is very difficult to practice."
Zhang Ruochen had spent the entire day and night to practice the Divine Dragon's Steal into the Beginner level.
Zhang Ruochen spent another three days to practice the Divine Dragon's Steal into the Small Success.
Next, Zhang Ruochen would strike out tens of thousands palms every day until his Vital Essence was exhausted, then he would stop to take a rest.
When his Vital Essence recovered, he immediately continued to practice.
Without rest, Zhang Ruochen had been practicing for half a month. He finally practiced the Divine Dragon's Steal into the succeed.
If Zhang Ruochen wanted to master the sixth palm of the Dragon and Elephant Prajna Palm without him reaching Heaven Realm, it would at least take him one or two years.
At present, he spent less than one month to master it.
Moreover, Zhang Ruochen had totally refined the Half-Saint's Light in the Qi Sea.
Although it was only 1% of the Half-Saint's Light, Zhang Ruochen's Martial Soul equaled to the level of a Monk in the Fourth Change in the Fish-dragon Realm.
If he could use the power of the Martial Soul to regulate the Heaven and Earth Spiritual Qi and turn it into attack power, with Zhang Ruochen's current strength, he would be able to compete with a monk in the Second Change in the Fish-dragon Realm.
Of course, he would not be able to defeat the Monk in the Second Change in the Fish-dragon Realm but only stay on the defensive side.
However, if his opponent was a genius of Saint Academy, whether they were in the Second Change in the Fish-dragon Realm, or even just the First Change in the Fish-dragon Realm, it was best for him to just run for his life.
For example, although Xu Hai was in the First Change in the Fish-dragon Realm, he was still the disciple of a powerful Saint family, which means that he could leap over several realms to defeat his opponent.
If Zhang Ruochen ran into him, the best way was to run, and he may even unable to escape.
The internal space of the Time and Space Spinel was very narrow. Zhang Ruochen dared not test the power of the Divine Dragon's Steal in it. He could only leave the internal space of the Time and Space Spinel.
Zhang Ruochen came to the Martial arts field of the Courier Station of Martial Market, and he struck out six palms of the Dragon and Elephant Prajna Palm in a row at the fastest speed. He suddenly brought out the power of the Dragon Pearl.
Zhang Ruochen was wrapped up by the golden light. His skin gradually became stiff and turned into scales.
All his bones went through subtle changes. Just like refining a golden stone, streaks of dragon patterns grew out.
The length of his fingers had increased by two times and became sharp, turning into two dragon claws.
There was a searing pain in his back. With a "Chh" sound, his body grew a pair of 12-meter-long golden dragon wings, which were also covered by the Dragon Scale and was as hard as iron.
Watching the change in his body, Zhang Ruochen was very surprised.
It was not Divine Dragon Transformation. He was still Half-dragon and Half-human. However, it was more powerful than the previous state in the Time and Space Spinel.
"With my current strength, even if I don't use the Spiritual Power and the power of the Martial Soul, I can possibly fight against warriors on the Heaven Board for a few moves.
Warriors on the Heaven Board were all very powerful. They were elites among the elites.
Especially the masters who ranked in the front, even if Zhang Ruochen used up all his Spiritual Power and the power of the Martial Soul, he still could not match his opponent.
When Zhang Ruochen practiced in the Time and Space Spinel, eight days had passed in the outside world, and the second round of the exam of Saint Academy had finally ended.
The exam ranking of every department had been posted. They were written in lists hanging outside of Saint Academy.
Without a doubt, Zhang Ruochen became the first in the Sword Technique Department. He got a pill of seventh-class, Sword Heart Pill as the reward.
Many people saw that Zhang Ruochen actually got first place in the Sword Technique Department, and they were very surprised. How did this happen when Zhang Ruochen merely displayed three moves of the sword technique during the second round of the exam?
Luckily, Zhang Ruochen was not a disciple of a powerful Saint family. Otherwise, some people would've thought that there was a despicable plot behind the assessment.
Only very few knew that the three moves of sword technique Zhang Ruochen showed had reached the Perfection of Martial Arts. He fully deserved to be the first in the Sword Technique Department.
Half-saint Lingshu sent the Sword Heart Pill to Courier Station of Martial Market. She personally handed it over to Zhang Ruochen.
"Zhang Ruochen, the third round of the exam will commence tomorrow. The location will be the Inferior Primitive World that was just discovered."
"The Primitive World is full of unknown danger. There are powerful indigenous Monks and is also filled with dangerous places. Even warriors in the Fish-dragon Realm may die there if they are unlucky."
Half-saint Lingshu was very serious. She said again, "You'd better prepare in advance. When you are in the Primitive World, you can only count on yourself and no one can help you. I have high hopes for you. Don't let me down."
