“You have been AFK Farming the game dungeon ‘Delilah Blood Clan Castle’ for a day. You have cleared the game dungeon once. You have received: one Origin Water and 100,000 low-grade spirit stones.”
“I’ve already gathered four World Piercing Sword fragments. I’m still missing five more fragments to complete the fusion.” Qi Ming said.
“Cultivated the Chaos Green Lotus Sword Scripture for a day under the enhancement of 10,000 times. Your spirit energy has increased greatly and you have comprehended heaven and earth. Your cultivation level has broken through and reached the late-stage Foundation Establishment realm.”
Qi Ming felt the spirit energy in his body tremble. It was as if his body had become a terrifying black hole. It crazily swallowed the surrounding spirit energy and poured it into his body.
Everything happened smoothly without any fluctuation. Even if someone discovered the abnormality of the spiritual qi in the Falling Cloud Peak, they would only discuss a little and leave the matter unsettled.
After all, Qi Ming was a legacy disciple. It was very normal for him to cause a spiritual qi phenomenon when he cultivated. At most, the frequency of the phenomenon appearing was a little too much.
Not long after, Qi Ming had already successfully broken through to the late-stage Foundation Establishment realm. The Chaos Green Lotus Dao Foundation in his dantian had already completely condensed. The spirit energy river had strengthened to a sea of spirit energy.
His cultivation level had already stabilized.
The powerful aura slowly disappeared.
Everything calmed down.
“I broke through.”
A happy smile appeared on Qi Ming’s face, “This breakthrough has reached the late-stage Foundation Establishment realm. It’s already the limit of the Foundation Establishment realm. If I want to continue improving, I need to reach the Core Formation realm.”
“If I want to reach the Core Formation realm, I will naturally have to condense a ninth-grade Golden Core.”
“The Chaos Green Lotus Sword Scripture is a Foundation Establishment cultivation method that has forged the Heavenly Dao Foundation. If I want to reach the Core Formation realm, I need a Core Formation cultivation method. I don’t have it now.”
“Under normal circumstances, I should tell my Master and receive the corresponding Core Formation cultivation method from the Heaven Enlightenment Sect through him. However, it’s obvious that I can’t do this.”
The reason was very simple.
It had only been three days since Qi Ming returned from the Heaven Enlightenment Assembly. He had already broken through to the late-stage Foundation Establishment realm from the early-stage Foundation Establishment realm.
With such an improvement speed, even if he was the reincarnation of an immortal, he could not explain it.
Qi Ming had to hide his cultivation level. At the very least, he could not expose it now. For example, if he exposed his late-stage Foundation Establishment cultivation in a year or two, they could barely accept it.
“Detected that the host’s cultivation level has already broken through to the late-stage Foundation Establishment realm. The AFK Farming reward of the mid-stage Foundation Establishment game dungeon, ‘Delilah Blood Clan Castle’, has been greatly reduced. A new game dungeon can be activated.”
A notification appeared.
“Activate.” Qi Ming said.
“Used 10,000 low-grade spirit stones and successfully activated the new game dungeon. You can enter the late-stage Foundation Establishment game dungeon: Shu Mountain’s Demon Subduing Pagoda.”
“Shu Mountain’s Demon Subduing Pagoda.”
Qi Ming pondered for a moment before saying, “Are we going to follow the plot of the previous Shu Mountain Sword Sect? At the end, the Shu Mountain Sect Master appeared and even named me as his savior.”
The corresponding game scene appeared in front of Qi Ming. The immortal fog of the Shu Mountain Sword Sect surrounded him, like a paradise on earth. Qi Ming had passed the assessments of the Shu Mountain Sword Sect in the past few game dungeons.
Qi Ming met the Shu Mountain Sect Master.
The Shu Mountain Sect Master had a kind face. He was dressed in a green robe and held a snow-white horsetail whisk. He had white hair and a youthful face. His gaze was fixed on Qi Ming, “You are the ‘savior’ that our Shu Mountain Sword Sect has been searching for.”
“Greetings, Shu Mountain Sect Master.” Qi Ming cupped his hands and bowed.
“Since the establishment of the Shu Mountain Sword Sect, it has always upheld the principle of subduing demons and devils. Over all these years, it has suppressed a large number of demons.”
The Shu Mountain Sect Master continued, “However, when the bowl is full, it overflows. Over the years, Shu Mountain’s Demon Subduing Pagoda has suppressed too many demons and ghosts. It is already saturated.”
“If this goes on, the Demon Subduing Pagoda will definitely show a flaw because it can’t withstand the pressure. At that time, the countless demons and ghosts suppressed in the Demon Subduing Pagoda will rush out of the pagoda and the Shu Mountain Sword Sect. They will enter the human world and wreak havoc. It will cause countless citizens to suffer.”
The Shu Mountain Sect Master looked straight at Qi Ming. “Our Shu Mountain Sword Sect is restricted by the sect rules and cannot send disciples into the Demon Subduing Pagoda. Therefore, can you enter the Shu Mountain Demon Subduing Pagoda to clean up the demons and ghosts inside?”
“Yes.” Qi Ming said.
The Shu Mountain Sect Master waved his right hand and gave Qi Ming an entire set of equipment. The Shu Mountain Robe, the Shu Mountain True Sword, and so on were all fully armed. The Shu Mountain Sect Master brought Qi Ming to the Shu Mountain Demon Subduing Pagoda.
Qi Ming looked over.
What greeted his eyes was an extremely magnificent black pagoda. This huge pagoda reached a hundred meters in diameter, but it towered into the clouds and seemed to pierce through the sky.
It was unknown how many levels there were.
From time to time, pitch-black demon ghost energy would gush out of this Demon Subduing Pagoda, causing the surrounding spiritual qi to be tainted. One could sense a very strong fluctuation.
“Go.” The Shu Mountain Sect Master waved his hand.
Qi Ming nodded and walked towards the Shu Mountain Demon Subduing Pagoda. His figure flashed and was teleported in, arriving at the first level.
Soon, Qi Ming received the corresponding message.
The clearing condition for this game dungeon, the Shu Mountain Demon Subduing Pagoda, was to kill a hundred demons and ghosts on the first level before clearing it.
In the game screen, the game character that Qi Ming had transformed into had already entered the first level of the Shu Mountain’s Demon Subduing Pagoda. He was in a quiet corridor, and the surrounding demon ghost qi was surging.
Immediately, a yaksha jumped out from the side.
This was a sea demon called the Sea Patrol Yaksha.
Qi Ming slashed out with his sword and slashed this yaksha into two. It fell to the ground and died, but more and more demons and ghosts surged out from its surroundings.
Fox Immortal, Zombie, Temple Ghost, Spider Spirit, Female Ghost…
There were all kinds of demons and monsters.
It could be said that the Shu Mountain’s Demon Subduing Pagoda was completely like the lair of demons and ghosts.
It was terrifying.
However, Qi Ming was like a sword immortal in the world as he slashed out sword lights. He slaughtered demons, exterminated ghosts, and killed monsters. More and more demons and ghosts died under his sword.
There was still a long way to go before he completed the game dungeon of Shu Mountain’s Demon Subduing Pagoda.
Qi Ming closed the game screen.
“The ‘Heavenly Nine Pill Scripture’ has been cultivated for a day under the enhancement of 10,000 times. The host’s understanding and comprehension of the alchemy path have increased greatly. The alchemist realm has increased from the Pill Spirit Qi Refinement realm to the Pill Rune Foundation Establishment realm.”
Another notification appeared.
“Good.” Qi Ming said.
Immediately after, the Heavenly Nine Pill Scripture was circulating on its own. Qi Ming entered that incomparably profound state. In this state, Qi Ming felt that he had been cultivating and comprehending the Heavenly Nine Pill Scripture for more than ten thousand days without sleep or rest.
Qi Ming’s mastery and condensation of the Pill Flame: Green Chaos Flame had become even more perfect and powerful. His understanding of the Pill Dao had increased greatly, and he had reached the level of a Pill Rune Foundation Establishment Pill Master.
This way, Qi Ming could even directly refine low-grade Foundation Establishment medicinal pills.
Not only that, the Green Chaos Flame was no longer just a pill fire. It could also be used as an extremely powerful attack. Its power was extremely great, and it even surpassed ordinary heaven and earth spirit flames.
Qi Ming did not open the furnace to refine pills.
This was because Qi Ming did not have any medicinal herbs for refinement.
Moreover, Qi Ming only had three pill formulas recorded in the Realm Breakthrough Pill formula.
He could currently attempt to refine the Foundation Establishment Pill.
“Cultivate the Chaos Green Lotus Sword Scripture.” Qi Ming said.
“AFK Farming failed. Detected that the host has already reached the late-stage Foundation Establishment realm. The Chaos Green Lotus Sword Scripture can no longer undergo AFK Farming. It has already reached the limit.”
A notification popped up.
“I really can’t cultivate anymore. I’ve reached the limit.” Qi Ming said.
“I can’t cultivate the World Piercing Sword either. Because I lack the materials, I can only study the Heavenly Nine Pill Scripture and the Realm Breakthrough Pill formula now. I also need to refine the Square Cloud Crane Cauldron.” Qi Ming thought to himself.
The first AFK Farming slot was used to cultivate the Heavenly Nine Pill Scripture, the second AFK Farming slot was used to research the Realm Breakthrough Pill formula, and the last AFK Farming slot was used to refine the Square Cloud Crane Cauldron.
The Square Cloud Crane Cauldron was a pill refinement cauldron that had reached the Core Formation realm.
Normally speaking, Qi Ming was only at the late-stage Foundation Establishment realm and it was very difficult for him to refine the ‘Core Formation realm pill cauldron’. However, it did not matter. Qi Ming had an AFK Farming Software and could directly refine it.
The night passed and the next day arrived.
In the morning, there was some movement from the Green Cloud Peak.
It was the fourth day after the Heaven Enlightenment Assembly ended.
Under the witness of the Green Cloud Peak’s Peak Master, Miao Hongjian, and the legacy elders, Fairy Feng Xi officially accepted Yu Xuelan as a legacy disciple and registered her.
Yu Xuelan was Fairy Feng Xi’s sixth legacy disciple.
At the same time, she was also the weakest legacy disciple of the Green Cloud Peak now. She could be considered to have taken Qi Ming’s status as the weakest legacy disciple. Now, he was ranked second from the bottom among all the legacy disciples of the Green Cloud Peak.
According to the rules of the Heaven Enlightenment Sect, Yu Xuelan had the qualifications and opportunity to obtain the cultivation method of the Chaos Green Lotus Sword Scripture. However, Yu Xuelan’s aptitude and physique had a huge conflict with the Chaos Green Lotus Sword Scripture, so it was impossible for her to cultivate it.
Yu Xuelan listened to Fairy Feng Xi’s instructions and chose another legacy cultivation method. It was called the Red Lotus Sun Scripture and she had her own independent cave abode.
There was a new legacy disciple in the Green Cloud Peak. This was a huge matter and had to be reported to the entire Green Cloud Peak to let all the elders and disciples know.
Qi Ming naturally received the news.
“Yu Xuelan has already become a legacy disciple.”
Qi Ming pondered for a moment, “It took nearly four days. It was slightly slower than mine.”
Qi Ming had only paid a little attention to this matter. Yu Xuelan becoming a legacy disciple was basically set in stone. It basically would not affect Qi Ming much, so he naturally did not have to pay too much attention to it.
Qi Ming still inquired a little and knew where Yu Xuelan’s cave abode was. It was not too far from Qi Ming’s Falling Cloud Peak and was about 15 miles away.
It was called: Red Lotus Peak.
The cave abode was called the Red Lotus Cave Abode.
That night, Qi Ming cleared the Shu Mountain Demon Subduing Pagoda and obtained something that made him overjoyed. It directly resolved Qi Ming’s current urgent need..
