Zhu Jiuyin said angrily, “You dare say your requirements aren’t high? Do you know what it means to ask for treasure of Seventh Grade and above?”
“What does that mean?” Yang Kai asked weakly.
Zhu Jiuyin snorted, “That means you want to kill an existence similar to this Queen and seize the Core. En, if you really want to do so, this Queen can give you some pointers. From here, a million kilometers west, there is an annoying fellow named Jin Wu. If you kill him and seize his Core, it will at least be an Eighth Grade treasure.”
Yang Kai’s forehead dripped with cold sweat, “Senior must be joking.”
Jin Wu was also a Holy Spirit. If he really had such ability, he wouldn’t have needed to act so docile and respectful in front of her, he would have long since pierced the sky.
“Junior doesn’t necessarily need a Holy Spirit Core to obtain a Gold Element treasure, is there no other suitable treasure in the Great Ruins Boundary?”
“There were some in the past,” Zhu Jiuyin revealed a look of reminiscence, “But later on, there were none.”
“Why?” Yang Kai was puzzled.
“The Great Ruins Boundary isn’t just limited to your group of people. If there were any good things here, wouldn’t those despicable bastards plunder them? Why would they leave them for you? If you want something above the Seventh Grade, you can only kill those Holy Spirits and seize their Core.”
Yang Kai couldn’t help being dumbfounded. Thinking about it, although the Great Ruins Boundary was a natural treasure trove, they weren’t the only guests who had come here for countless years. How could those powerful seniors show any mercy? If there was anything good, they would have collected it long ago.
He was able to obtain the Earth Attribute's Dragon Bead because of his bloodline and the Moon Essence because it was a Sacred Object of the Sea Race, guarded by the Leviathan Shark. Even if he want to get a Gold Element Treasure, there would be some difficulties.
“Why do you need treasure above the Seventh Grade?” Zhu Jiuyin looked at Yang Kai in confusion, “I know the cultivation methods of you people. If you condense a Dao Seal in your body and then condense the power of the Yin-Yang + Five Elements to achieve Open Heaven, wouldn’t a Seventh Grade mean High Rank Open Heaven?”
“That’s right,” Yang Kai nodded solemnly, “Junior’s ambitions are lofty, and I want to achieve High Rank Open Heaven directly.”
Zhu Jiuyin blinked and laughed, “You’re the most ambitious person I’ve ever met.”
Yang Kai keenly noticed something, “Senior also had a Bearer before?”
Zhu Jiuyin was surprised, “You know about the Bearer?”
“It’s not a secret, is it?” Yang Kai smiled lightly, pretending to be profound.
Zhu Jiuyin examined him and said, “Your background is not ordinary, so it’s not surprising that you know about this. Since you know about the Bearer, you must also know what I want you to do.”
Yang Kai nodded, “To seize the opportunity to escape from this cage! That’s why this Junior came to ask Senior for some benefits. Only when this Junior becomes strong will Junior have a greater chance of competing with the other masters and obtaining first place!”
“You’re right,” Zhu Jiuyin nodded, “But if you want a Seventh Grade and above Gold Element treasure, there’s nothing I can do about it, I have quite a few Sixth Order ones.”
Yang Kai was speechless. He also had a Sixth Grade treasure, several dozen of Yuan Magnetic Divine Stones, and a lot of Sixth Grade Yuan Magnetic Divine Light in the Yuan Magnetic Divine Bottle GOurd. If he was willing to use a Sixth Grade Yuan Magnetic Divine Light, why would he need to beg Zhu Jiuyin?
“How about this,” Zhu Jiuyin pondered for a moment before saying, “Condense the Water Element first, I’ll have someone investigate the Gold Element treasure. Perhaps there are some things that have been overlooked. If there are, I’ll find them for you.”
Yang Kai asked in confusion, “If I don’t condense the Gold Element, how can I condense the Water Element?”
Zhu Jiuyin sneered, “Ordinary people can only cultivate according to the five elements order, but this Queen has a profound technique that allows you to ignore this order and condense it at will.”
Yang Kai’s body trembled, “Is there such a profound method in this world?”
Yue He and Lu Xue also looked over in surprise. One of them was a Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage while the other was a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage. Both of them had seen many things but had never heard of such a technique.
If there really was such a profound method, wouldn’t it break the cultivation system that had existed in the Outer Universe for tens of thousands of years? If such a thing were to appear, it would definitely cause a bloody storm.
Zhu Jiuyin said faintly, “Originally, there wasn’t, but this Queen once had a Bearer who was astonishingly talented and created this wonderful technique. At that time, his situation was similar to yours. He had a treasure for the next stage of cultivation in his possession, but he lacked the middle stage, so he had no choice but to cross the order to cultivate. However, I must tell you that although this technique is wonderful, it is somewhat whimsical and risky. If your foundation is insufficient, it is very likely that the five elements will collapse and your Dao Seal will shatter. At that time, you will die and your Dao Seal will disappear. Do you still want to learn it?”
“Yes!” Yang Kai quickly nodded. No matter how dangerous this method was, it was always right to learn it first. When the time came, if he really couldn’t, he would just not cultivate it. In any case, he was still young and had plenty of time, so there was no need to rush.
Zhu Jiuyin nodded and gently pointed towards Yang Kai’s forehead.
Yang Kai’s body trembled as he felt countless pieces of information pour into his mind, causing him to freeze in place.
After a long time, Yang Kai’s figure suddenly trembled as he came to his senses, with a look of admiration appearing on his face, “The person who created this technique is truly a genius.”
This technique was called the Defying Yin-Yang Five Elements Mysterious Universe Heart Scripture. If one were to use this technique to condense the Yin-Yang + Five Elements, there was no need to worry about the order of the five elements. It could be said that one could cultivate as they wished.
However, using this kind of technique to condense energy would have a huge impact on the Dao Seal compared to normal cultivation. If the Dao Seal was not sturdy, it would be impossible to cultivate. The danger Zhu Jiuyin mentioned was precisely this.
But correspondingly, using this technique to condense the Yin-Yang + Five Elements was also beneficial, which was that once one achieved Open Heaven, their strength would become stronger.
Because the Dao Seal had withstood an unimaginable impact and had a solid foundation, it was naturally incomparable.
Yang Kai couldn’t help exclaiming in admiration. Zhu Jiuyin had said that this was a technique created by one of her Bearer, so it was obvious how amazing this Bearer was.
However, what Yang Kai found strange was that since the Bearer was so powerful, why couldn’t he bring Zhu Jiuyin out of the Great Ruins Boundary?
Seemingly seeing through Yang Kai’s doubts, Zhu Jiuyin said, “That man died in the Seizing Spirit's War. If not for that, with his aptitude, how could this Queen be trapped here?”
Yang Kai gulped, “Did that person die because of this technique?”
“That’s not it. This method was developed by me and him, so it can be considered quite perfect. The reason he died was because he was surrounded by many other Bearer.”
Yang Kai nodded, feeling relieved. Since someone had successfully cultivated the Defying Yin-Yang Five Elements Mysterious Universe Heart Scripture, he could certainly do the same.
There was no reason for him to not be able to walk on the path created by his predecessors.
Since he couldn’t wait to comprehend the mysteries of this technique, Yang Kai didn’t waste any more time talking to Zhu Jiuyin. After he excuse himself, he returned to his secluded room to meditate.
Day after day, month after month.
This Defying Yin-Yang Five Elements Mysterious Universe Heart Scripture was extremely profound, and Yang Kai had to study it for half a year before he was able to gain some insights, but even so, he didn’t dare to try it.
The grade of the Moon Essence was extremely high; after all, it was an Innate Treasure. If one didn’t have complete confidence, forcefully condensing it would only damage their Dao Seal.
If he wanted to try, there were two more key points.
Firstly, the Five Elements Force couldn’t be harmonized. Under normal circumstances, he should first condense the Gold Element before condensing the Water Element, but now that he didn’t have a suitable Gold Element, he could only cross this stage. In this way, the Five Elements Force would inevitably become chaotic, and this would require the Defying Yin-Yang Five Elements Mysterious Universe Heart Scripture to harmonize it. This wasn’t a big problem, as the Defying Yin-Yang Five Elements Mysterious Universe Heart Scripture was created for this moment.
The biggest problem was that his Dao Seal wasn’t strong enough. Yang Kai was blessed by the Heavens and had first condensed the essence of the Eternal Tree to form a solid foundation for his Wood Element before condensing his Fire Element. With the Wood Element's suppression, Yang Kai was able to survive, not to mention Earth Element. The Earth Attribute Dragon Bead came from the same source as him, so condensing it wouldn’t be dangerous at all. However, if he wanted to condense Water Element now, his Dao Seal’s toughness would be much weaker.
Yang Kai had no choice but to come out of seclusion and consult Zhu Jiuyin.
He believed that the previous Bearer should have had similar experiences. Since he had successfully cultivated, he had definitely solved this problem.
After listening to Yang Kai’s explanation, Zhu Jiuyin casually tossed a jade bottle to him.
Yang Kai took it and opened the bottle while asking, “What is this?”
Zhu Jiuyin lazily replied, “I don’t know what this is, but that little brat once called it the Dao Divine Water.” The little brat she was referring to was undoubtedly the one who had created the Defying Yin-Yang Five Elements Mysterious Universe Heart Scripture.
“Dao Divine Water?” Yue He and Lu Xue exclaimed in unison, their faces pale.
Zhu Jiuyin turned to look at them while Yang Kai also turned to look at them, “Is this thing very famous?”
She didn’t know much about the Outer Universe, so she naturally didn’t know what this Dao Divine Water meant.
Yue He quickly said, “Good stuff, it’s a treasure.”
Lu Xue also nodded vigorously, her eyes burning as she stared at the jade bottle in Yang Kai’s hand.
Hearing this, Yang Kai’s face lit up, “Senior’s gift must be something good, but what use does it have?”
Yue He said, “Strengthen the Dao Seal! As you know, a cultivator’s aptitude is limited, and the root cause is the Dao Seal. Some people’s limit is condensing a Third Grade energy, while others’ limit is condensing a Sixth Grade energy. This is the difference in the limits of the Dao Seal. The Dao Seal is condensed from one’s own Dao, and once it is formed, it cannot be easily changed. It can be said that when the Dao Seal is condensed, the cultivator’s future achievements are basically predetermined. However, if one has the Dao Divine Water, it is possible to improve further.”
“By using this Dao Divine Water to strengthen the Dao Seal, I can condense an even higher grade of power, surpassing my original limit?” Yang Kai understood and was overjoyed.
“That’s right,” Yue He nodded. She had reached the Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage back then, which meant that her Dao Seal’s limit was to withstand the impact of a Fifth Grade energy, but if she had the assistance of the Dao Origin Water, reaching the Sixth Order wouldn’t have been a problem, provided she could find enough Sixth Grade materials.
However, Dao Divine Water were extremely rare. In the past thousands of years, there had only been a handful of them, and it was said that some people had obtained Dao Divine Water.
