After a long time, Liu Ming had finished reading. He was chanting with his palm spread open. 5 black smoke balls appeared on each of his fingers. They were growing and shrinking as he chanted.
When the black smoke balls grew to the size of an egg, he made a gesture and 5 smoke balls flew onto the dry corpse’s head.
At the same time, a faint yellow light immediately appeared on the skin of the dry corpse, blocking the intrusion of the black smoke balls.
Seeing this scene, Liu Ming was rejoiced instead of being shocked. As he accelerated his chant, the black smoke balls slowly went through the light curtain.
After about 30 minutes, all the black smoke balls went into the dry corpse in a flash.
Liu Ming sighed softly with a smile.
The corpse refining mystic art given by Master’s Junior Yan was really effective. A trace of Divine Thought that hid inside the smoke balls had already invaded the cry corpse.
When his Divine Thought flashed out of the smoke ball and scanned the entire corpse, he was shocked again.
This dry corpse looked skinny on the surface, but the density of its flesh was incredible.
Liu Ming himself was half a physique cultivator. His body was tough and the density of his bones was denser. It could no longer be comparable with a physique cultivator. The difference in their level was too huge.
According to his Divine Thought, the density of each part of this dry corpse was almost 10 times of his body.
Such a tyrannical body, even if he used the true spirit flying sword, it would not hurt it a little.
Liu Ming thought in amazement, then he launched a wind blade at the dry corpse.
With a “pop“, the wind blades shattered into light spots, and there was not even a mark on the dry skin of the corpse.
Liu Ming murmured, then a silver light ball appeared on his fingers again.
The next moment, with a roar, a silver lightning arc hit on the dry corpse. It was the Heavenly Thunder Spell he had learned.
As a result, after the silver lightning arc flashed, the lightning disappeared into smoke, but the yellow corpse remained unharmed. It wasn’t even burnt by a little bit.
Seeing this, Liu Ming launched different kinds of attacks on the dry corpse, but to no avail. Even his sword controlling technique couldn’t leave a mark on it.
After 10 minutes, Liu Ming stopped with a mixed expression of happiness and sorrow.
The dry corpse, without being sacrificial refined, had the sturdiness that was comparable to the defensive magic weapon prototype.
Although the corpse refining mystic arts of Master’s Junior Yan was good, he especially had many unique insights when leveling up the refined corpse, but it was obviously not applicable to this corpse of the Celestial State.
If he wanted to understand this dry corpse thoroughly, and even refined it into a refined corpse, he needed a higher-level corpse refining method.
After sighing, Liu Ming carefully put it into the Sumeru Ring with a wave of his hand.
After a while, a black cloud flew into the air from a cave house on the Fallen Serene Peak. It was whistling toward the Scriptures Pavilion.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Liu, you are here at the Scriptures Pavilion to read again?” Seeing Liu Ming’s figure appeared at the door, the fat deputy disciple surnamed Lu immediately greeted him with a smile.
Liu Ming was startled, then he immediately reacted to it.
The last time he came here was before entering the mysterious space. 10 years seemed to have passed for him, but to normal people, it had only been 2 months.
“Hehe, I encountered some problems while cultivating, so I can only come here to see what I can learn from senior.” Liu Ming smiled back, then he walked in quickly.
He was already quite familiar with the Scriptures Pavilion. He went straight to the 3rd floor and began to read various classics about true spirit flying sword and corpse refining.
It was at mid day which was the most crowded time of the Scriptures Pavilion. People came in and out from time to time, but they all subconsciously slowed down their footsteps.
Half an hour later, in front of a bookshelf on the east side of the 3rd floor of the Scriptures Pavilion, Liu Ming put down a jade slip named ‘Artemisia Sword Classic’, showing a trace of disappointment on his face.
Although there were many classics of the Scriptures Pavilion, the quality was uneven. Among these ancient books about sword technique, most of them were the essence of some sword controlling techniques, but there were very few mentions of the forging method of the sword embryo body. Even if there was, it was just some ordinary refine methods of the sword embryo body. It was far from Liu Ming’s expectations, and it was not applicable to the Tai Gang Sword Tactics.
Just as he was vexing, 2 young disciples walked over on the other side of the bookshelf. They were dressed in bright yellow costumes. Judging from the sword-shaped pattern on the cuffs, they seemed to be the inner disciple of the Tianjian Peak.
Liu Ming glanced slightly, then he turned his head indifferently and continued to search on the bookshelf.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Kai Yuan, why would you waste time here? Although the Scriptures Pavilion has a lot of books, most of them are general. If you want to look for sword skill mystic book, it is better to look in our scripture pavilion.” A young man whispered absently.
“I know that of course. My Four Seasons Sword Art has reached a bottleneck, now I need to find some inspiration for breakthroughs. I’m just here to try my luck.” As another person said, he removed a green jade slip from the bookshelf and attached it to his forehead.
However, the voice of the 2 talking softly made Liu Ming moved.
The listener read his own meaning to it.
The 2 people’s casual words reminded him that Tianjian Peak was famous for the sword controlling technique, so it was reasonable to go to the Tianjian Peak for something related to flying swords.
In this Scriptures Pavilion, there were almost no books related to the refining method of the sword embryo body, but Tianjian Peak might have them.
It was like there were various ghost techniques collected by the predecessors as well as the cultivating experience books written by various predecessors in the Fallen Serene Peak’s scripture pavilion. After Liu Ming visited Fallen Serene Peak, he had also been there several times.
Although this Scriptures Pavilion was open to all disciples and had many ancient books of various fields. However, when it came to a certain type of mystic arts, it was obvious that the books in each mountain peak were much more sophisticated.
“Such a simple truth, why didn’t I think of it before?” Liu Ming couldn’t help pressing his forehead, and he muttered to himself depressingly.
After understanding this, he immediately put the jade slip in his hand back on the bookshelf and began to look up the mystic arts about corpse refining.
But not long after, Liu Ming looked helpless.
Although there were many books related to corpse refining in the Scriptures Pavilion, they all stop at the refining of the Crystallization Period corpses. Not to mention the Celestial State corpse, even the refining method of the Real Pellet State corpse couldn’t be found at all.
In fact, it was not only the technique of corpse refining, but the other techniques in the Scriptures Pavilion here only reached the Real Pellet State. The techniques of higher-level were not mentioned at all.
After thinking for a while, Liu Ming vaguely understood what was going on, but after putting the book he was holding back in place, he still went downstairs unwillingly and went directly to the fat deputy disciple.
“Huh, Brother Liu has found what you are looking for so soon?” The fat deputy asked Liu Ming with a smile.
“Not really. But Brother Lu, there is something I can’t figure out, so I want to ask you about it.” Liu Ming asked very politely after cupping his fist.
“Since Senior Fellow Apprentice Liu has doubts, just ask me. I will answer what I know.” The fat deputy was startled at first, but he immediately replied without thinking.
Liu Ming naturally thanked him. After hesitating for a while, he asked,
“I have come to the Scriptures Pavilion a few times, but I discovered that there doesn’t seem to be any Celestial State technique books here, and even Real Pellet State related books are rare. Can Brother Lu solve my doubts?”
“So, Brother Liu is here to check the Celestial State mystic arts?” The fat deputy disciple couldn’t help showing a look of surprise when he heard this.
After all, Liu Ming had just advanced to the early stage of the Crystallization Period. Normally, the mystic arts of Real Pellet State were far enough for him, let alone Celestial State.
“I have hit a bottleneck in my cultivation, so I may need to comprehend the books of Celestial State techniques, which is why I have to ask you.” Liu Ming naturally couldn’t tell the truth, so he replied vaguely.
When the deputy surnamed Lu heard this, he looked understood.
He was the Scriptures Pavilion’s deputy, so he often encountered some disciples who raise a lot of weird questions. He had heard similar questions before, sp he replied immediately,
” The Scriptures Pavilion here is mainly open to the inner and outer disciple. These disciples are generally from the Condensation Period to the Crystallization Period, so the relevant techniques here are at most Real Pellet State. Once the inner disciple reaches the Real Pellet State, you will automatically be promoted as an esoteric disciple. All the Celestial State techniques are the true secret techniques of our sect, and only the esoteric disciple is qualified to learn these. So, they are of course not available here.”
“Of course, our sect has also set rules. If an outer disciple makes enough contributions for the sect, the sect may directly reward Celestial State mystic arts, but this has nothing to do with our pavilion.”
Liu Ming nodded thoughtfully after listening to the fat deputy’s so many responses. Apparently, the answers were similar to what he had thought.
He immediately chatted with the fat deputy and left the Scriptures Pavilion, and he flew in a certain direction in a black cloud.
Half an hour later, he flew to the vicinity of the famous Tianjian Peak in the Thousands Spirit Mountain.
This mountain was majestic, towering into the clouds. The mountain was steep and straight like a giant sword that thrust into the ground.
Looking at the Tianjian Peak, there were rows of neatly arranged buildings with cornices which were very different from the gloomy style of the Fallen Serene Peak.
After Liu Ming looked in the air for a while, he flew and landed on a white jade platform.
Won’t this attract Long Yanfei’s attention who is looking for the sword embryo cultivated by her grandfather?
