The majority of team Chinas members sat near the edge of the platform in case Zheng went into a frenzy and damaged them. No one in the team had the ability to take him on in a head to head fight especially when he wielded this upgraded Tigers Soul. So they waited in the distance and would yell for a heal as soon as he lost himself.
Its taking long this time. Hes still sitting there after three minutes. WangXia took a look at this watch.
No one else said a word as they stared at Zheng in full concentration. They had been accompanying Zheng through his attempts to tame Tigers Soul these two days. The most dangerous time was when he activated Destruction and approached them in under a second. Thanks to YinKong and Hengs fast reaction to calling for a full heal, team China avoided the possible casualties. Taming Tigers Soul proved to be a very dangerous task.
Zheng remained calm for longer than any previous attempts. His eyes had the same redness as he slowly stood up. His body was slightly shaking. YinKong stopped the others as they planned to call for a heal. Its fine He can control the killing intent now.
Zheng didnt attack as expected. He took a few deep breaths then stored Tigers Soul into the Na Ring. The adverse aura subsided. The rest of the team members looked at each other then ran toward him.
Sorry to make you worry. Zheng said with a bitter smile. The hand that wielded Tigers Soul was still shaking.
This upgrade to Tigers Soul did not change the material of the sword itself. It used a rune word combination to insert an adverse aura that can affect a persons consciousness into the sword. See the Oracle Bone Script on the blade? That is the source of the adverse aura. I finally realized Tigers Soul isnt a magical weapon once I attempted to gain control of it through my refined Qi. Its actually a XiuZhen item, or more accurately, Demon item. Zheng sat on the sofa and said.
Everyone went with him to his room. The girls went to prepare food and the team members listened to his narration of taming Tigers Soul.
I felt the crafting process of Tigers Soul at the time, much similar to when we revive team members. My consciousness connected to another consciousness. A man was refining a mineral with fire. It may sound inconceivable but in the scene, the man used the crafting methods you would read in XianXia novels. He emitted a flame through himself to burn the mineral. However, the mineral suddenly melted and tried to swallow him. A white tiger came out from next to the man and swallowed the liquid. Zheng waved his hand as he saw the strange expressions from the rest.
Dont give me such looks. That is really what I saw in those few minutes. The man became enraged. He ignored the tigers pleas then grabbed it near the tail and pulled out its spine. The liquid formed the blade of Tigers Soul, which is the semi translucent part. The tigers spine became the centre and hilt of the sword. The man then confined the tigers hatred and adverse aura into the weapon in order to further increase its power, which formed Tigers Soul. The power that he used is the same as my refined Qi. He called it Xiuzhen energy one of the powers that can safely use Tigers Soul.
A short silence followed then WangXia and Gando cried in a shock. Xiuzhen? The martial art that leads to ascending to an immortal? They looked at each other then turned to Zheng.
Correct. Thats the energy produced from Xiuzhen. Zheng gave them a bitter smile. I kind of knew from the feeling that the man crafted this weapon to fight the Saints who reached the fifth stage. There were many people with the same power as him doing preparations. I dont know what happened afterward. But Tigers Soul became an item you can exchange from God. I think one of the suspicions Luo YingLong mentioned could be the items we can exchange from God.
Seeing that the others were confused, Zheng continued. This is merely my conjecture. HongLu, do you get what I am saying?
HongLu twirled his hair then picked up a cup of red tea on the table. He nodded. I can guess what you meant. You are referring to the origin of the enhancements and abilities, correct?
Zheng nodded. Right. The origin of the enhancements and abilities is the first question I had after I reached the fourth stage. Logically, these enhancements and abilities should come from different people. They will likely create some abilities after reaching the fourth stage. Perhaps they created abilities suitable for other forms of organisms in order to continue their growth, which resulted in werewolves, elves, vampires, and the enhancements from comics. This is possible but theres a flaw to the specualtion
Why would those who reached the fourth stage and higher choose to alter low tier genes? I would never choose the useless low tier genes. My sight will only fall on those that can make me stronger. Though, currently I can only optimize the hibernating genes in my DNA. It takes mid-fourth stage and higher to actually alter them. The questions comes back to why would they bother altering the genes for the weaker organisms or bloodlines? Why would they create the weak abilities? Could it be that they were aware of our existence in the future at the time?
Zheng breathed out and continued. So my conjecture is the enhancements and abilities dont necessarily all came from the Saints. Many of them could be created by the enemies of the Saints. The accumulations over time led to the variety we have now. And Cultivators might be enemies of the Saints.
HongLu laughed. You still havent said whether you can use Tigers Soul after a whole bunch of words. What about your Xiuzhen energy? Can you keep producing it or control it?
Zheng nodded. I can use Tigers Soul with a big limitation. That is I need to have Xiuzhen energy. Its not only a weapon. Regular people without Xiuzhen energy will become enraged from touching it. Good thing is it doesnt consume energy at a rapid rate. The Xiuzhen energy may look like a little but its very durable. I will have to refine large amounts of energy in order to use it in the movies.
The team let out a sigh of relief. One, the weapon didnt become a waste. It would be a pity if Zheng couldnt use such a powerful weapon. Two, Zheng wouldnt go into berserk mode again. They were bound to have casualties if he went berserk after he grew in strength.
Zheng laughed then said. But fortune comes with this unfortunate event. ChengXiao, you still recall the eight flags you got from the Lord of the Rings?
ChengXiao paused for a moment. Uh? The eight flags? Yeah, you have them right now.
Zheng nodded. I was thinking since my refined Qi is a type of Xiuzhen energy, can I use the Qi to control these flags? You never saw the terrifying power of the flags. I couldnt resist them at the time and almost died in the battlefield. It was all Zeros effort that I barely survived. My power will grow ten folds if I can really use the flags. Haha. We arent powerless if we were to fight team Devil again.
Kampa said. "Then hurry and try this Xiuzhen item. I also often read Xianxia novels. Is the power really world breaking as depicted in the novels?
Nah, not so powerful. Those are novels. We arent in a novel here. Zheng waved his hand. I want to give them a try but unfortunately I have spent the Qi I refined over the last three days on controlling Tigers Soul. We only have six days left in Gods dimension, which will only get me two times the refined Qi I accumulated before There isnt enough time. I have to exchange for days in the movies to accumulate a large quantity of refined Qi. Then we will not fear the movie worlds anymore!
