411 The Great Improvement of Cultivation


 "Monster ape, go heal your wounds in the valley and wait for my return."

After Zhang Ruochen gave the order to the monster ape, he leaped into the Blackwater Chillpool to dig out the Black Glazed Spinel.

In the cold pond of more than 200 meters deep, the water pressure was suffocating and it was freezing. The stone wall around the pool was very hard. Zhang Ruochen used all his strength but only managed to dig out a small piece.

It weighed only about 50 or a 100 grams, which was about the same size as the Black Glazed Spinel above the Master Longze's Holy Staff.

"Who would have thought that the legendary Black Glazed Spinel was actually nurtured at the bottom of the cold pond."

The Black Glazed Spinel was formed by the purest power of water nature in the Five Elements Primitive World. Even if they were brought back to the Kunlun's Field, they could be sold at very high prices.

After he spent half a day, Zhang Ruochen could only dig out the Black Glazed Spinels on the surface. There were more than 310 kilograms of them.

The largest piece, which was about the size of a washbasin, weighed over 100 kilograms and contained the purest pure power of water nature. Inside the crystal, one could see streaks of golden light of colored glaze.

Afterward, Zhang Ruochen released the Skyeye and discovered a few more Black Glazed Spinels that were still buried underneath the soil, so he continued to dig.

He spent a day and a night to dig up 100 more kilograms of Black Glazed Spinels. He left none untouched.

All together, Zhang Ruochen harvested more than 410 kilograms of Black Glazed Spinels.

"The Blackwater Chillpool is a wonderful place to cultivate. I should refine these Black Glazed Spinels here."

Zhang Ruochen did not enter the internal space of Time and Space Spinel. Instead, he decided to rely on the external environment of the Blackwater Chillpool.

He took out a piece of Black Glazed Spinel that weighed about half a kilogram and pinched it in his hand. He then enveloped it with Blue Genuine Qi.

BAM!

Squeezed by the Genuine Qi, the Black Glazed Spinel exploded and turned into a cloud of black crystal fog. With the flow of the Genuine Qi, the dust entered Zhang Ruochen's Meridians.

He circulated large cirde of vital energy through his body, and a third of the power contained in the Black Glazed Spinel was absorbed instantly.

The power of water nature contained in the Black Glazed Spinel was freezing cold. As the result, Zhang Ruochen trembled all over his body. His muscles, bones, and organs made crackling sound as if they were being stir-fried.

Streaks of black air flowed into Zhang Ruochen's skeleton, leaving prints on his skeleton.

He then ran three more large cirdes of vital energy again in his body and just about absorbed all of the power contained in the Black Glazed Spinel.

"My cultivation has indeed greatly improved. Without this, I would have to practice for a year. I have reached the Peak of the Advanced Stage of the Heaven Realm, and I am only a few steps away from the Dawn State of the Heaven Realm."

If there was no Black Glazed Spinel, Zhang Ruochen would've had to practice for another year to achieve the present realm.

Even if he used the power of Time and Space Spinel, he would still have needed four months.

Of course, Zhang Ruochen had the Dragon Pearl and could constantly absorb the Divine Dragon Strength, saving half of the time. But even then, he still needed two months.

This was the importance of cultivation resources. Without sufficient resources, it is impossible for a top genius to achieve the Fish-dragon Realm, even if he practiced for a lifetime.

Zhang Ruochen checked his own bones and found that the black lines on his bones had increased tenfold and his bones became much harder. Vaguely, they gave off a feeling like they were crystal clear.

Except for his bones, every part of his body had gone through significant changes.

Not only did his strength and defensive power increased, but the coordination between his body and Heaven and Earth Spiritual Qi had also improved. Precisely, he had better coordination between his body and the power of water nature in heaven and earth.

If he could practice into Treasured Body of Water Spirit, Zhang Ruochen would be the manifestation of the power of water nature in heaven and earth, and he could easily control the water of the earth, the void space, and the body.

Just like the monster ape, he could condense an ice spike directly in his abdomen and spit it out his mouth.

However, the monster ape was only a savage beast, and it could not use the special power of the Treasured Body of Water Spirit. If it could use the power, Zhang Ruochen may not have been able to suppress it even if he used the Martial Soul.

Water was the source of all things, and the power contained within it was limitless.

Water could both attack and defend.

If he practiced into a Treasured Body of Water Spirit, there were two major advantages in addition to the great enhancement of his physical quality.

First, the warrior could practice directly to the Fish-dragon Realm without any difficulty.

This is the same as warriors who had the Saintly Being practicing directly into the Saint Realm without any difficulty. Of course, the Treasured Body of Water Spirit could not be compared with the Saintly Being as Treasured Body of Water Spirit was still inferior.

Second, warrior's practicing speed was obviously faster than that of ordinary warriors. Moreover, it was easier for him to perceive the Holy Road and comprehend the true meaning of the Holy Road.

This was because the warriors who possessed the Treasured Body of Water Spirit were more harmonious with Heaven and Earth Spiritual Qi.

Although Zhang Ruochen only had an ordinary physical quality, he had many advantages that other warriors did not have. He had the Time and Space Spinel, his previous life's memories, strong Spiritual Power, Scripture of Emperor of the Ming Dynasty, etc., so his practicing speed was faster than that of the Saintly Being.

Cultivation experience was also an advantage.

If he could practice into a Treasured Body of Water Spirit, his practicing speed would be even faster.

Zhang Ruochen took out another piece of Black Glazed Spinel that weighed half a kilogram. He began to refine it as he wanted to break through the Dawn State of the Heaven Realm.

He ran three large cirdes of vital energy again, and the Black Glazed Spinel was completely absorbed. His cultivation greatly increased again, but he did not reach the Dawn State of the Heaven Realm.

Having reached the limit of the Advanced Stage of the Heaven Realm, he was at the doorstep of breaking through the realm.

"After reaching the Heaven Realm, it would be difficult to break through any realm. Even if there is no actual limit, only the Vital Essence that is needed to break through the realm will cost countless warriors' lives."

It was reasonable to say that the Heaven Realm was the ultimate realm of Martial Arts.

Countless warriors were unable to break through the Heaven Realm. They could only be ordinary martial arts practitioners and couldn't reach the Holy Road that they had always dreamed about.

Only reaching the Fish-dragon Realm could it be regarded as crossing the threshold of the Holy Road.

Zhang Ruochen took out the third piece of Black Glazed Spinel. When he refined half of them, there was a low roaring sound in his Qi Sea.

Afterward, it gave out a stroke of Absorbing Qi, and the speed at which Zhang Ruochen absorbed the Black Glazed Spinel doubled.

In a flash, he completely absorbed the Black Glazed Spinel.

Finally, he broke through the boundary barrier of the realm and entered the Dawn State of the Heaven Realm.

Zhang Ruochen felt the emptiness in his Qi Sea. He urgently needed to absorb more Spiritual Qi.

Therefore, Zhang Ruochen took out another piece of Black Glazed Spinel and continued to refine it. He transformed the power of water nature into Vital Essence, and the Vital Essence ball in the Qi Sea grew bigger and bigger.

He absorbed about 3.25 kilograms Black Glazed Spinels in total. Zhang Ruochen's physical quality seemed to be saturated, and he could no longer absorb anymore of the Black Glazed Spinel into his body.

"Why is this happening?"

Zhang Ruochen took out a piece of small Black Glazed Spinel of about 100 grams and held it in his hand. He absorbed it into his body and continued to refine it.

However, just after he ran his exercises, a sharp pain struck Zhang Ruochen's body, and he spat a mouthful of blood.

The power of the Black Glazed Spinel also sprung out of his body and dissipated in the water.

Zhang Ruochen covered his chest and took a deep breath. He said, "It seems that my body has reached its limit. I can no longer absorb the Black Glazed Spinel into the body before I break another realm."

Even if he tried again, it would be useless. It would not only break his body but also waste the Black Glazed Spinel.

Of course, absorbing 3.25 kilograms Black Glazed Spinel, Zhang Ruochen had reached the Peak of the Dawn State of the Heaven Realm, which was also not far from the Medium State of the Heaven Realm. It probably saved Zhang Ruochen seven years of practicing.

"The Vessel Spirit of Heaven Board said that if I find the Black Glazed Spinel, it can save 10 years of my hard practice. It doesn't simply mean my cultivation, but also Treasured Body of Water Spirit."

"Refining half of kilogram Black Glazed Spinel will save me one year of bitter practice."

"In other words, if I absorb five kilograms of Black Glazed Spinel, I can practice into a Treasured Body of Water Spirit?"

Zhang Ruochen had already inspected his own physical quality, especially his bones.

His bones were almost covered by the black Lines, and the lines were crystal clear. Although they were far less than the monster ape's, they were far more advanced than before.

His guess may not be wrong. If he absorbed another 1.75 kilograms of Black Glazed Spinels, he would have a chance to practice into a Treasured Body of Water Spirit.

"Now, my physical quality has reached the limit. I must break through the Medium State of the Heaven Realm in order to continue to absorb the Black Glazed Spinel. After that, I should be able to practice into a Treasured Body of Water Spirit."

Zhang Ruochen rushed out of the Blackwater Chillpool and landed on the bank of the cold pond. He found that the water in the cold pond was not so cold after all.

He looked at the water surface. The water quality was no longer so dark anymore, and it became clearer.

"After the Black Glazed Spinels were taken away, the cold pond became just like any other!" Zhang Ruochen sighed.

After seeing Zhang Ruochen flying out of the Blackwater Chillpool, the monster ape stood up and roared loudly. His huge body moved and knelt down in front of Zhang Ruochen.

Zhang Ruochen said, "Monster ape, how many days have I been practicing in the Blackwater Chillpool?"

The monster ape transmitted its thought idea to Zhang Ruochen. It said, "Master, five days."

Zhang Ruochen nodded and said, "It has been a long time. The Five Elements Primitive World has already been in chaos. I will go out for a walk and seize another four Spirit Treasures by taking advantage of the chaos."

Refining the Black Glazed Spinel could make one practice into a Treasured Body of Water Spirit.

If he got the Source of Spiritual Fire, could he practice into a Treasured Body of Fire Spirit?

If he got the Purple Cloud-patterned Eaglewood, could he practice into a Treasured Body of Wood Spirit?

Each of the five Spirit Treasures represented the purest Power of Origin of the Five Elements Primitive World, and even Half-Saints would come to loot it.

If he could find all of them, he would have the opportunity to practice into the legendary Five Elements Chaotic Body.

The Five Elements Chaotic Body was more powerful than the five elements Saintly Being, but the difficulty of practicing was also great. It was harder to practice than the Ultimate Realm.

Even if Zhang Ruochen seized all five Spirit Treasures, he may not be able to successfully absorb all their powers.

After all, the human body's ability to bear was limited, and it was already remarkable that he could practice into a treasured body of one kind.

Combining two kinds of strength and practicing into a Treasured Bodies of Double Spirits would be 10 times more difficult.

What about Five Elements Chaotic Body?

Zhang Ruochen's present goal was only to practice into a Treasured Body of Water Spirit. Of course, he could work hard to become a Treasured Bodies of Double Spirits, and even a Treasured Body of Three Spirits.
