Archean Eon Art - Chapter 384
Chapter 384 – Inside The Pagoda
“It’s suggested that one cultivates the Magic Awl Forbidden Spell.”
“The Magic Awl Forbidden Spell and the Essence Soul Star are the most compatible. They are extremely effective against enemies.”
“With the Magic Awl Forbidden Spell, one can abandon Starlight. It’s suggested to spend more time on the Magic Awl Forbidden Spell.”
Seniors that had cultivated the Essence Soul Star formulation gave advice to their juniors.
Half of the book’s content described the cultivation of one’s Essence Soul Star, while the other half described the Magic Awl Forbidden Spell. Everyone held it in high esteem. They deemed it the strongest mystic technique in the Heart Sea Palace, second only to the Essence Soul Star.
“Oh? They recommend it that much?” Meng Chuan looked at the Guardian. “Where’s the Magic Awl Forbidden Spell?”
“Here.” The Guardian skillfully took out a book and handed it to Meng Chuan.
The River of Spacetime’s laws didn’t restrict the Magic Awl Forbidden Spell.
It’s a forbidden spell that cultivates an Essence Soul weapon. Meng Chuan flipped through the book. There were lots of words and diagrams in the book, and information surged into his mind. The Essence Soul Star gave different results when cultivated by different people. As for the Magic Awl Forbidden Spell, its cultivation method was very clear. All of them followed one particular direction in cultivation. However, the higher one’s cultivation realm was, the stronger the outcome.
This forbidden spell was to cultivate an Essence Soul weapon-Magic Awl! It was called a forbidden spell because one needed to consume some of their Essence Soul foundation to cultivate it. Using ten percent of one’s Essence Soul foundation for cultivation didn’t have much of an impact.
The negative effects showed when more than ten percent of one’s Essence Soul foundation was used. The defensive properties of one’s Essence Soul Star began to decline, and the speed at which one’s Essence Soul improved would constantly decrease.
When more than 30% of one’s Essence Soul foundation was used, it resulted in severe consequences such as the loss of memories and the drop in perceptivity. However, this forbidden spell was extremely powerful! After cultivating the Magic Awl with just ten percent of one’s Essence Soul foundation, it was comparable to a beam of Starlight. A fifth-level Essence Soul could even injure a sixth-level Essence Soul with it, reducing the strength of the sixth-level Essence Soul. Of course, the attack easily backfired. If the Magic Awl failed to pierce through an enemy’s Essence Soul, it would be damaged to the point of destruction. However, it was extremely effective at piercing an enemy’s Essence Soul.
If one used 30% of their Essence Soul foundation to cultivate it, they would have a chance of killing a sixth-level Essence Soul despite having a fifth-level Essence Soul. An enemy with weaker willpower would have their minds go blank upon being attacked. They would be unable to resist at all. Sixth-level Essence Soul experts with stronger willpower would also suffer a huge loss in strength, barely able to unleash 20 to 30 percent of their strength. This was a high-level Essence Soul weapon! All the experts of the human Essence Soul lineage respected it.
Some even wanted to use 30% of their Essence Soul foundation to cultivate it. They combined the Essence Soul mystic technique with their head-on combat techniques; they were virtually invincible.
This all depended on one’s choices. The flaw of this forbidden spell was that cultivating a Magic Awl would place one’s Essence Soul foundation in a damaged state for prolonged periods. For example, using 30% of one’s Essence Soul foundation to cultivate the Magic Awl would force one’s Essence Soul to stay at 70% efficiency for a long period of time. The improvement of one’s Essence Soul would be very slow, and their defense would be much weaker.
It’s really a double-edged sword. It hurts the enemy and oneself. Furthermore, the refinement method of this Essence Soul weapon requires time to study it. At the very least, it’s no less difficult than the Essence Soul Star for anyone below the Tribulation realm.
Meng Chuan simply flipped through the Essence Soul mystic techniques.
Although there were other mystic techniques, he had to consider the time it took, the power it had, and other different angles. It took him a lot of time and effort to cultivate the Essence Soul Star. He just needed to cultivate the Magic Awl Forbidden Spell to make up for the formulation’s lacking lethality. Cultivating a weaker Essence Soul mystic technique was not worth the time. Rumble!
The Heart Sea Palace’s door closed as Meng Chuan and the Guardian walked out.
Battle God Pagoda. Meng Chuan’s gaze landed on the building on the right. It was an ancient nine-story pagoda.
The Guardian also looked at the pagoda. “The Eon Sea Sect only set two tests. You are ranked first in the Heart Sea Palace, so you naturally passed that one. As for the Battle God Pagoda… it has nothing to do with your Essence Soul. It doesn’t even have anything to do with the divine armaments you possess. It tests your true combat strength and your technique realm.
“A judgment of your potential will be made depending on your age, strength, and technique realm,” said the Guardian. “This was personally built by Ancestral Master Archean Eon. With Ancestral Master Archean Eon at the Physical Body Seventh Tribulation realm, the Battle God Pagoda test he set… is extremely accurate when judging one’s potential. Let me remind you that your Bloodblade Disc is useless inside.
“All external powers are useless. You will have to choose your weapon and armor from the Battle God Pagoda upon entry,” said the Guardian. “All Essence Soul mystic techniques are useless because your opponent is formed from an array formation. I can tell that your body is very extraordinary,” said the Guardian. “However, don’t count on your powerful body. In the River of Spacetime, there are all sorts of legacies and rare treasures that can make one’s body very powerful. Therefore, one’s technique realm is key. Your age, the level of your technique realm-all of this can determine your perceptivity potential,” said the Guardian. “Of course, combat strength is also one aspect.” Meng Chuan nodded. “I understand.” “Go all out. It’s not important which level you reach in the nine-storied Battle God Pagoda. What’s important is to showcase yourself,” said the Guardian. “When inside, try your best to showcase your strength. That might boost the Battle God Pagoda’s evaluation of you. This slight boost might be the difference between being ranked fifth or sixth.
“A 59-year-old Regis Godfiend won’t even enter the top 1,000 in human history. You have to do your best.” The Guardian stared at Meng Chuan. “Of course, don’t be discouraged. A 49-year-old Regis Godfiend can be ranked in the top ten. I think you’ve broken through for quite some time.”
Meng Chuan also understood.
An expert with a fifth-level Essence Soul at the age of 59 was ranked in the top five in human history.
A 59-year-old Regis Godfiend? In any thousand-year-long span, there were several such geniuses. He had broken through to the Seamless realm at the age of 55. In comparison, his master, Qin Wu, had become a Regis Godfiend when he was 58-years-old. Bai Yaoyue became a Regis Godfiend when she was 53-years-old.
In fact, becoming a Regis Godfiend when one was in their fifties was monstrous enough. It was very difficult for one to become a Regis Godfiend a year earlier. Just that difference made one surpass many seniors in history.
“Go on in,” said the Guardian with a smile. “Kill the opponents you encounter, and you will enter a higher level.”
Meng Chuan nodded and walked towards the ancient pagoda. He walked to the door of this time-scarred pagoda and pushed it open. After entering the Battle God Pagoda, he entered a separate space.
Information entered his mind.
Meng Chuan learned the rules of the Battle God Pagoda. It was similar to what the Guardian had said. Meng Chuan had long stored the Bloodblade Disc in his dantian space. He had also put away Demon Slayer. As for the robe on his body? It was his Indestructible Divine Armor-a part of his own strength.
There are plenty of weapons and armors. Meng Chuan immediately saw a large number of weapons and armors placed beside him. After scanning them with his Seamless domain, he came to a realization. Apart from being tough and sharp, there’s nothing special about these armaments.I’ll use this. Meng Chuan picked up a battle saber that looked like Demon Slayer.
He scanned his surroundings with the Seamless domain and understood the details of every weapon. This battle saber was most suitable for him.
With the saber in hand, Meng Chuan walked forward.
For this war, for the sake of the entire human race, I have to enter the top five in the Battle God Pagoda. Meng Chuan’s fighting spirit rose. This way, he could obtain everything from the Eon Sea Sect. With everything from the Eon Sea Sect, Archean Mountain would be able to restore a portion of the Archean Eon Sect’s former glory. This greatly boosted the chances of humanity winning this war.
A vortex appeared in the sky. A figure descended from the vortex-an alien expert with scale armor and wings. He swooped down as he attacked.
Meng Chuan knew that this was an opponent formed by the array formation.
Come on. Meng Chuan instantly transformed into a beam of light and charged over.
