Chapter 344: Greater Mastery Body Tempering, Body Mutation, Bear Treasure’s Mystical Power!
The Divine Flame Giant fell, but Bear Treasure had not finished cultivating.
At this moment, it was naturally time to clean up the battlefield.
“There shouldn’t be anything left after the Divine Flame Giant self-destructed… I hope I can find two more Life Origin Stones on the seventh level…”
Wang Che looked around.
Since it had self-destructed, it would definitely not have any spoils of war left.
However, there should be many good things on the seventh level.
The little caterpillar, who had already transformed into its original form, arrived at the area where the Divine Flame Giant had self-destructed.
It spat out the thread and stabbed it into the ground, sensing its surroundings.

“There’s nothing left…”
Wang Che shook his head.
The little caterpillar shouted. After searching for a while, it seemed to have discovered something good.
Wang Che walked over and took a look.
The thread emerged from the ground, binding an eyeball-like stone.
“Eh, this is…”
Wang Che looked at the stone that looked like an eyeball, “This is the stone eye of the Divine Flame Giant? Didn’t this thing shatter from self-destruction?”
He frowned slightly and felt that something was wrong.
The stone eye seemed to contain intense earth energy, thick and firm.
Wang Che held it in his hand and pinched it gently.
The stone eye suddenly emitted a powerful energy fluctuation that spread out.
Wang Che was surprised.
The things on these ancient soul beasts were really strange!
“In the previous battle, I didn’t feel anything special about this Divine Flame Giant’s eyes?”
While Wang Che was thinking, soon, the little caterpillar used the thread to dig out another stone eye.
“With my understanding of ancient soul beasts in this world, I still don’t know enough.”
Wang Che’s understanding of ancient soul beasts was only limited to communicating with the Sky God Dragon and the soul beast encyclopedia.
Wang Che did not know much else.
Many ancient soul beasts only knew the details. Only the professors who specialized in ancient soul beasts in this world knew the details.
Just like the mysterious little beast just now.
It had never appeared in the soul beast encyclopedia, nor had the Sky God Dragon mentioned it.
Wang Che had never heard of it in detail from other channels, so he could not even say its name.
“To be able to remain intact from self-destruction… this pair of stone eyes is definitely not simple.” Wang Che used his mental strength to carefully sense this pair of stone eyes.
Other than sensing the majestic earth energy, it also felt indestructible.
He looked at the shape.
Wang Che’s heart jumped, “From my experience, this shape looks like a key?”
The Divine Flame Giant’s stone eye looked irregular, but the edge of the irregularity was very smooth.
Moreover, it was clearly a pair of stone eyes. Other than the material looking like it, the shape was completely different.
“The Divine Flame Giant came from the Transversal Peak Cave… Even if this thing is a key, it should be related to the cave…”
Wang Che thought about it. This might be related to the origin of the Divine Flame Giant.
However, Wang Che did not know much about the Divine Flame Giant.
“Forget it, I’ll put it away first.”
Wang Che put away the pair of stone eyes.
Other than this pair of stone eyes, the other parts of the Divine Flame Giant were shattered.
The little caterpillar did not find anything good.
Fortunately, it found two Life Origin Stones and some high-level resources buried underground, such as nuclear stones and soul plants.
They all contained rich earth energy.
“Alright, at least they have a chance to learn an inherited soul skill.”
Wang Che was very satisfied.
Then, he came to Bear Treasure.
Bear Treasure was sitting in the air, flames circling its body.
It, who had its eyes closed, looked a little silly, especially since it had no fur.
Its bald head was still reflecting light.
The little caterpillar wanted to go up and stroke it with its tail to test the feeling.
Bear Treasure’s Divine Flame Body Tempering Technique had already reached Greater Mastery.
Its entire body glowed with a faint light. Its skin was red like steel that had been burned by thousands of degrees of heat.
There was no roasted scene as the little caterpillar imagined.
At this moment, Bear Treasure’s entire body was as hard as steel. The flames burning its body were only tempering the impurities within.
“It’ll be fine when its temperature drops.”
Wang Che took a look and discovered that Bear Treasure’s eyes were flickering. He could not help but be slightly stunned, “Did it mutate? No, it’s a divine power?”
There was a chance that the Divine Flame Body Tempering Technique would develop a divine power during the cultivation process.
This divine power was a martial cultivation divine power. It was usually related to the body.
To be honest, during the tempering process, there was a chance that the intense flames would cause different body parts to mutate.
During the mutation, a divine power appeared.
This was how the Body Tempering Technique was. At the later stages, even if one did not cultivate it, they would still develop divine powers.
The risks and pain of cultivating various body tempering techniques would always bring huge benefits.
“It should be a divine power related to the eyes…” Wang Che muttered.
From the Divine Flame Body Tempering Technique that Wang Che knew, there were a total of three divine powers that would appear when the eye mutated.
The first was the Raging Fire True Eyes. Its eyes burned with true fire. It could absorb flames to increase its strength, or it could shoot out flames and turn them into the Raging Fire True Light to kill the enemy.
Secondly, it was the Samadhi Spirit Eyes, a divine power born from the tempering of the True Samadhi Fire. It had the powerful ability to see through all illusions and the soul. The actual effect was that it could see through the motive of the opponent and had an extremely strong destructive effect on all illusions. It was extremely helpful in battle.
The third was the Earth Golden Eyes. This divine power had no combat effect, but it was actually very powerful. In the cultivation world, the Golden Eyes could see through the terrain of the mountains and see the various rare mineral veins, ores, and natural treasures hidden in the depths of the ground. They obtained a vast amount of resources.
According to the history of the Divine Flame Body Tempering Technique, there were only three eye-based divine powers.
They were not simple.
No matter which divine power it was, it was very helpful to cultivators.
As for other eye-based divine powers, no one who cultivated the Divine Flame Body Tempering Technique had ever appeared.
“It’s a pleasant surprise to be able to develop a divine power…”
At the later stages of cultivating the Divine Flame Body Tempering Technique, there was a chance of producing a divine power.
Divine powers produced by the mutation of the body had a higher growth potential and stronger effects.
The little caterpillar was a little dizzy from Bear Treasure’s sparkling eyes.
It wondered what had happened to Bear Treasure.
“Considering the different energies in this world and the improvement of the Divine Flame Body Tempering Technique…”
Wang Che was not sure if these three eye-based divine powers would appear from the mutation of Bear Treasure’s eyes.
Before long, Bear Treasure opened its eyes.
In an instant, a spiritual light flashed and the color of Bear Treasure’s body gradually returned to normal.
The skin was as tender as a newborn child, but with a slight movement, the skin shrunk like a steel plate.
Bear Treasure rubbed its eyes, feeling a little uncomfortable.
It looked around in confusion.
What about the battle?
It was over?
The little caterpillar knocked Bear Treasure’s head with its tail.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
It was like knocking on a wooden fish.
“…” Bear Treasure.
“Ssss!” The little caterpillar narrowed its eyes.
It meant that its head was getting smoother and smoother.
Bear Treasure touched its head in panic. It was so smooth. Would its fur grow?
“Don’t worry, it will definitely grow,” Wang Che comforted, “Feel some of your current strength. Isn’t it much stronger than before?”
“You’ve only become bald temporarily, but you’ve become stronger permanently.”
“Think about it. Isn’t that good?”
Bear Treasure immediately clenched its bear paw.
The air cracked.
An explosion sounded.
Bear Treasure suddenly emitted an aura like that of a ferocious beast.
Fortunately, there was no testing device present. Otherwise, Bear Treasure felt that it could blow up the machine that tested the strength of a thousand-year soul beast with a punch.
The little caterpillar felt that Bear Treasure had become much stronger, but it did not know how strong it had become.
“Very good. Now, feel your eyes. Is there anything special?” Wang Che asked.
Its body mutated during cultivation and produced divine powers.
This phenomenon was quite hidden.
Cultivators might not notice it immediately.
It would often erupt at crucial moments.
As for Wang Che, he was personally observing Bear Treasure’s cultivation. Naturally, he guided Bear Treasure to sense the changes in its eyes the first time.
Bear Treasure nodded and howled a few times, feeling its eyes hurt.
It did not know what was going on.
Wang Che said, “Your eyes might have mutated. It will let you have some magical abilities, such as the bead that the little caterpillar spat out previously and the special ability like the token.”
Bear Treasure, who was covering its eyes, immediately extended its paw, revealing a pair of sparkling bear eyes.
‘Ah, is that an ability I can have?’
Bear Treasure was a little excited!
From the first level to the seventh level, in less than three days, the pain it endured was much stronger than the little caterpillar.
Bear Treasure first closed its eyes and sensed the changes in its body.
The next moment, it suddenly opened its eyes. Its eyes flickered as wisps of energy constantly flowed around its eyes.
Its eyes seemed to be covered in a layer of shimmering light.
The entire world seemed to have changed.
The green caterpillar seemed to have become a ball of colorful energy… The change in energy could be seen clearly.
It could even see the direction of the little caterpillar’s soul power.
The little caterpillar immediately dodged, feeling that Bear Treasure’s eyes seemed to have seen through it.
It was very uncomfortable.
It felt like it was naked in front of Bear Treasure.
Although… it was naked to begin with.
But to the little caterpillar, the skin on its body was equivalent to clothes… Now, in front of Bear Treasure, even the skin seemed to be gone.
In fact, the little caterpillar did not even look like anything in Bear Treasure’s eyes. It had only become a ball of colorful energy…
The same was true for the Magnetic Sword.
Looking at the ground, it could also see some subtle energy flow.
In the end, it looked at Wang Che and could only see a ball of blazing white light. It hurt its eyes and hurriedly closed them.
“How was it?” Wang Che asked.
Bear Treasure closed its eyes and explained the situation.
After hearing this, Wang Che pondered.
“It can see the energy flow of various colors… It can also see it on the ground… It sounds a little like the Earth Golden Eyes… but it can see some of the soul power in the body… This also looks a little like the Samadhi Spirit Eyes?”
“Could there be a problem with the divine power?”
Divine powers had just appeared and were different from cultivated divine powers.
Due to the mutation of the body, the initial effect was not obvious. It would only be obvious after completely adapting to the body.
“Alright, pack up. Let’s go back.”
Wang Che said, “When we go back, we’ll try the power of your eyes again.”
Bear Treasure nodded excitedly.
At this moment, a team of twenty rescue teams flew over.
Wang Che also knew the leader, Adjutant Li of Skyheart City.
“Oh kid, it’s you? What’s going on?”
Adjutant Li landed in front of Wang Che and looked around, “We just received a rescue message. It said that there was a fire-shaped Energy Dragon fighting the Divine Flame Giant and even self-destructed… Where’s the Divine Flame Giant? Where’s the Fire Dragon? Where’s the Earth Fire? Where’s the self-destruction? Why is there nothing?”
“Don’t tell me you caused everything?”
Wang Che smiled. Clearly, this was not done by him.
It was that mysterious little beast.
The starlight that scattered down made everything disappear.
Even the Earth Fire was extinguished.
Not only did it make the Divine Flame Giant’s self-destruction disappear, but even the Fire Dragon formed by using the Capital Divine Fire Token to control the Earth Fire was gone.
“It has nothing to do with me,” Wang Che said. “I can’t explain the exact situation in a short time. The competition is almost over, right? Let’s go back and talk.”
“By the way, the Earth Fire suddenly surged out of the underground cave. Did something happen in the underground cave?”
Adjutant Li pondered for a few seconds and glanced at Wang Che. He did not hide anything, “It’s said that there’s a problem with the Soul Guiding Diagram at the Earth Fire Core. However, it’s not related to the competition. There should be an accident on the seventh level.”
Then, Adjutant Li instructed a few members to investigate the seventh level before returning with Wang Che.
In the air, one could clearly see that most of the Earth Fire in the seven regions had been extinguished.
Only a small portion was left.
“There’s indeed strength in numbers,” Wang Che said.
The scorching temperature in the air seemed to have decreased greatly.
“Kid, you’re amazing.” Adjutant Li stared at Wang Che, “Do you know the results of this competition? It hasn’t been completely calculated yet.”
“I’m not sure. I haven’t calculated it before.” Wang Che thought for a moment, “My results should be average, right? Forming a team has a bonus score, and it also adds to the total score. I didn’t put out too much Earth Fire.”
Adjutant Li scolded jokingly, “It’s still the same as before. It’s quite ordinary indeed. Your points are almost comparable to the first team. You’re the only one in the top ten of this competition, although you’re the last one.”
Hearing this, Wang Che was a little surprised, “Are my points that high?”
Teaming up had various points.
For example, Li Yunxiu’s team had a high bonus.
Coupled with their tacit cooperation, the efficiency of extinguishing the Earth Fire was extremely high. It had the largest area and obtained the most resources.
The strength of four people was stronger than one person in the competition.
Not to mention their respective soul pets.
“Alright, looking at you, you probably don’t care about this at all.” Adjutant Li smiled and said, “It’s the same as the first time you went to Skyheart City to explore the wilderness. However, thanks to you, the Earth Fire here is finally controlled. There was a problem in the last competition. Fortunately, there were no casualties.”
“Overall, it was a success. However, your performance on the way made us exclaim.”
“The other teams have outstanding comprehensive abilities, but they’re not as outstanding as you.”
“When we go back later, we’ll calculate the resources obtained. The Cloud Sky Aviation Star still has to calculate the total points. Perhaps your ranking will increase by one or two places.”
Wang Che nodded.
He looked back at the area below.
After being burned by the Earth Fire, the mountain was bare and desolate.
He could not see anything.
Wang Che vaguely saw the figure of a small beast, as if it was hiding somewhere below and staring at him.
He blinked slightly but saw nothing.
Wang Che continued to think.
‘This little beast’s strength is extraordinary… Demon spirit-type… I have to find an expert professor in this area to confirm it.’ Wang Che pondered.
After flying for an hour, Wang Che arrived at the central square of the Transversal Peak Mountain Lighthouse.
The crowd surged.
At this moment, they were all teams waiting for the points to be released.
The reward was not important. The main thing was to be famous enough!
This was a rare Earth Fire Competition in the nine continents of the war zone!
Although the competition was only to extinguish the Earth Fire, the value was not very high.
However, being in the limelight here was equivalent to being seen by the entire war zone.
Both soul pets and Contract Soul Masters would obtain honor!
Putting out the Earth Fire was also a righteous act.
Wang Che did not feel much.
“Student, the contestants who return from the Earth Fire Zone have to go to the resource center in the hall to confirm the resources obtained by the Cloud Sky Aviation Star to calculate the total points.” A staff member patiently explained to Wang Che.
Wang Che: “…”
It was already evening. The teams that could return had already returned.
The further they went, the later they returned.
When Wang Che arrived, there were no teams confirming the resources.
At this moment, the Cloud Sky Aviation Star had already entered the calculation process of the total points.
He could just take out some resources and confirm it.
During the process of obtaining the resources, they would be scanned by the communication device and recorded into the Cloud Sky Aviation Star.
However, such records would be greatly lacking.
In a place like the seventh level, the earth fire was too strong and the signal was very unstable. The scanning was often interrupted.
The calculation of points was not accurate, so it needed to be calculated again.
The staff member who was scanning the resources looked at Wang Che strangely.
“What’s wrong?” Wang Che asked.
“With so many advanced resources, did you come back from the seventh level?” The staff asked.
“It’s not much, right?” Wang Che looked around.
The little caterpillar actually did not find much resources from the seventh level. Compared to the previous levels, it was actually quite little.
Moreover, most of them were nuclear stones and ores.
There were very few soul plants.
Of course, the six Life Origin Stones were the greatest gain.
They were also the most valuable.
To the Transversal Peak Mountain Range, it was normal to have such a treasure.
“You’re telling me this isn’t a lot?” The staff member picked up a Life Origin Stone and ridiculed, “There aren’t many teams that have found this thing so far. All of them combined only add up to two digits. Good fellow, you found six alone?”
“Are you stocking up here?”
Wang Che: “…”
“Let’s not talk about the other high-level resources.” Like a cashier, the staff picked up many ore soul plants and quickly scanned them expressionlessly, as if he had thought of something.
“I see, you’re Wang Che? The one in tenth place on the scoreboard?”
“So it’s you. Alright then…”
He scanned for more than ten minutes.
He asked Wang Che to take back many resources. The Earth Core Lotus was too special. The staff could not recognize it when Wang Che showed it.
If the Earth Core Lotus did not produce flames, it would look like a fire-type soul plant.
Clearly, without some knowledge, one might not recognize such a treasure-level resource.
Of course, the Cloud Sky Aviation Star should know. However, he did not know how many points this thing could scan.
Wang Che walked out and thought about it. He planned to find Li Yanming and ask him about the situation.
He did not care much about the points ranking.
In the hall.
Shen Mingluan looked at the real-time scoreboard in her contact list.
“Junior Wang is actually in tenth place… He doesn’t have any bonus points since he’s alone. How much Earth Fire did he extinguish…”
Shen Mingluan muttered, “How ridiculous.”
It was more than ridiculous!
The square was filled with discussions about the points for the Earth Fire Competition.
Not to mention the top ten, there were only three of such solo teams in the top 100.
Other than Wang Che, the other two were both in the nineties.
They were barely qualified.
The rest were all teams formed by various universities, clubs, and corporations to participate!
“Fortunately, it’s only tenth.”
Shen Minghai thought for a moment, “Just because Wang Che extinguished the Earth Fire in the fire pool, the bonus points on that level are very high… However, in terms of resources, the team will definitely obtain far more resources than an individual… After calculating the resources, his ranking should be pulled apart.”
“I wonder what he encountered on the seventh level. Is the dragon formed by fire energy related to him?”
“Moreover, I discovered that the seventh level’s area has instantly turned green on the map.”
“This means that the Earth Fire is all gone… This is too terrifying… I wonder what happened in the seventh level after we left?”
Shen Minghai analyzed.
They felt that after the total points were out, their team should be in third or second place.
The first should be Li Yunxiu’s team.
The top ten or even the top twenty should only be the various elite teams.
Li Yunxiu was silent in the distance. No one knew what he was thinking.
Soon, a violent light shot down from the sky.
The light screen unfolded and the overall points ranking of the Earth Fire Competition appeared!
