Once, twice, thrice
Luo Yunyang routinely absorbed each essence flame into his body one after the other. Each time a flame entered his body, an aperture broke open.
When the ninth aperture broke open, Luo Yunyang felt an impulse to soar into the sky.
A majestic power was stored inside his body, while his fire-based source core felt as if it had been inflated.
Although each True Intent of the nine essence flames had its own characteristics, they all co-existed mutually within Luo Yunyang’s fire-based source core. Actually, they felt as though they could possibly be linked together at any moment.
According to the records of the Heaven-Battling Ape-Dragon Chart, True Intent and mind power could mix and change state. When this new state was assimilated into the source core, the person in question would become a god-grade entity.
For most martialists, taking this path could be very arduous, as they would need to train their state of mind and comprehend True Intent. Who knew how many martial grandmasters were stuck outside this path?
Although Luo Yunyang could have prepared for this step, he could no longer take reference from Chi Hen’s experiences. He actually felt a faint apprehension in his heart now.
Becoming a god-grade entity shouldn’t be too complicated for him. Thanks to the attribute regulator, he had already become a god-grade telekinesis master after all.
As these thoughts went through his mind, Luo Yunyang was suddenly wide awake. This was a crucial time, so he needed to press forward courageously. If he couldn’t do it, then nobody else could either. This sort of apprehensiveness wouldn’t benefit him in the slightest.
Luo Yunyang opened his attribute regulator. After restoring all his attributes back to their original state, he discovered that his power had experienced a massive change.
Power: 6,821 (Fire: 4,759, Ice: 621, Wood: 601)
Mind: 3,353 (Fire: 8)
Constitution: 610 (Golden Body: 92, Fire: 243, Ice: 43, Wood: 47)
True Intent: 18.7 (Decimation: 9.9, Fire: 7.6, Space: 1.1)
During a breakthrough, the crux lay within one’s mind and comprehension. Luo Yunyang quickly transferred all his True Intent attribute points to his Mind and Constitution. His Mind instantly exceeded 10,000 points and his Constitution reached 15,000.
Luo Yunyang had a resolute look on his face as he sensed the changes in his body. He evoked his source power according to the methods of the Heaven-Battling Ape-Dragon Chart, causing nine different blazes to instantly surge in his source core.
The True Intents of those nine blazes attracted each other inside the source core and formed a huge ring of fire outside it.
The instant that ring of fire was created, its might increased tenfold.
All kinds of full-bodied powers of the sky and earth frantically bubbled forward within Luo Yunyang’s body. As the power of the flames surged, Luo Yunyang felt his source core swell up.
He now had an opportunity. If he didn’t assimilate his mind into his source core, then not only would it be difficult for him to become a god-grade entity, but his source core would also suffer as a result.
A strong mind power was considered an important guarantee that determined whether a martial grandmaster would become a god-grade powerhouse. Most martial grandmasters were defeated the instant they became god-grade entities.
Luo Yunyang’s mind power had reached 10,000 attribute points and could already form an origin sword, so although he felt a little apprehensive, Luo Yunyang wasn’t afraid of the surging blazes.
In an instant, an origin sword condensed from his mind power charged towards his source core. Compared to his scattered, messy mind power, Luo Yunyang believed that the condensed origin sword was way more reliable.
This shouldn’t be too difficult!
Some martialists weren’t telekinesis users, but were still able to become god-grade entities. Luo Yunyang’s strong mind power had already reached a god-grade telekinesis master state. How could these blazes even hope to drown him?
Although Luo Yunyang was full of confidence, when his mind power was assimilated within the surging flames, he felt as though his mind was on the verge of crumbling.
He had to give way at once!
Each of the nine flames had its own varying True Intent. Luo Yunyang’s mind power had just been assimilated by the flames, when he felt several sensations, including a burning feeling, a mild feeling and a strange chilly feeling that was added to his mind power.
Cracks instantly started to appear on the origin sword made of concentrated mind power.
Luo Yunyang, who wasn’t prepared to let his origin sword become part of his source core, didn’t have a very good feeling about this.
All he could do was press forward!
These were Luo Yunyang’s innermost thoughts. It was only now that he truly understood why the Heaven-Battling Ape-Dragon Chart defied natural order.
If any other people cultivated the chart, they would be burned by this strange source power the moment they tried to assimilate their mind power into their source core.
Luo Yunyang hadn’t known this, but the people who had cultivated the Heaven-Battling Ape-Dragon Chart in the past had all been grounded individuals who had obtained True Fire from the sun and concentrated single-mindedly on cultivation before step by step breaking open each of the nine apertures.
Although drawing on the power of essence flames made the process quicker, it was also very dangerous.
Some great masters who had studied the Heaven-Battling Ape-Dragon Chart said that essence flames were a shortcut with no prospects.
Just like with everything else in life, one had to invest energy and time in order to be properly compensated.
Luo Yunyang started to raise his Mind Attribute without hesitation. His Constitution was too strong, so he decreased it by 10,000 points and transferred those points to his Mind, which now reached 20,000 points.
The effect of the attribute regulator was crazy. In just an instant, the burning sensation within Luo Yunyang’s body became much more intense, while the origin sword, which had been full of cracks, started to slowly congeal.
Mind power bashed through the flames and entered his source core. Then, the mind power and the power of the blazes started to fuse and form a consciousness.
The formation of this consciousness signified that Luo Yunyang’s cultivation base had passed the god-grade boundaries.
The concept of time slowly dissipated from Luo Yunyang’s heart. After an indefinite amount of time, Luo Yunyang felt like he had broken through the last flames obstructing his progress.
The image of a source core the size of a fist appeared in his mind.
Without the slightest bit of hesitation, Luo Yunyang’s mind power assimilated into the source core. In an instant, the nine apertures that had already linked up with the sky and earth started to absorb power from all around them frantically.
The flames that had originally prevented Luo Yunyang’s mind power from entering quickly started to shrink rapidly after the mind power and fuse with the source core.
Suddenly, Luo Yunyang sensed another form of himself appear within his body. However, this self existed inside a sphere that seemed to be enveloped by flames.
A small golden-red person controlled that sphere of fire. Although the sphere was small, Luo Yunyang sensed that it could instantly envelop a radius of 25 kilometers.
Could this be what a god felt like?
