So another 2 years passed.
Through daily training, Liu Ming had once again adapted to the environment, and he was obviously more proficient in manipulating phantasms than before. The degree of phantasm’s solidity and the fluctuations of spiritual power were getting closer to his.
However, he still couldn’t condense the 3rd phantasm successfully.
As a result, he reluctantly increased the difficulty again.
Time passed bit by bit; 1 year, 2 years, and another 5 years passed in a blink of an eye.
Liu Ming’s body was enveloped in black gas like a black phantom, moving flexibly through the stone forest without any sound.
Next to him were still 2 phantasms with the same appearance, but these 2 phantasms were obviously much more complete than before. They had intact and feet, and even their facial features could be seen clearly.
While shuttling, the real body and the phantasms looked no different under the rolling black gas.
Now, when he was in danger, he would subconsciously blend into the surrounding environment. When he was running, his body would react like a conditioned reflex, adjusting to the best angle with the surrounding environment.
Moreover, he didn’t seem to need to deliberately control the 2 phantasms as if they were part of his body.
As long as he used his mind, the phantasms would move with it.
Before he knew it, his mind seemed to have entered a wonderful state. Everything around him seemed to become a little ethereal.
Deep inside his body, a turbulent feeling emerged.
Liu Ming almost subconsciously channeled his spiritual power, and the 3rd phantasm appeared behind him with a flash!
The moment this 3rd phantasm appeared, it ran forward with the other 3 figures. There was no difference in speed or appearance at all.
This process was so smooth as the 3rd phantasm was part of his body instead of a phantasm.
It seemed to be lost for many years, but now it’s back!
That’s how it felt!
Now, each of these 3 phantasms began to emit faint spiritual power fluctuations.
Three Shadowy Mirages Technique was finally completed.
At the next moment, Liu Ming suddenly got out from the ethereal realm with a hint of ecstasy on his face.
Immediately, he turned into a black shadow that followed the 3 phantasms.
From a distance, the 4 black figures had the same spiritual fluctuations, appearance and movement; it was difficult to tell which one was real!
When Liu Ming was in a good mood, he moved faster and faster. The 4 black figures came together and split up from time to time. Wherever they passed, there were countless afterimages as if there were thousands of figures moving everywhere.
Suddenly, all the figures suddenly gathered into 1, standing quietly on top of a rock.
It was Liu Ming.
The smile on his face at this time became more intense, and a trace of satisfaction flashed in his eyes.
He could feel that as he mastered the Three Shadowy Mirages Technique, the practicability was greatly enhanced.
The only shortcoming was that the spiritual power consumption was much faster than before.
Since he had mastered this technique, he decided to use the remaining time for actual combat training through the Celestial Tablet’s Illusive Demonic Pupil.
Liu Ming had entered the mysterious space for the 30th year; in the illusion.
A black figure and a person with a purple electric shield were chasing back and forth in a barren mountain.
It was Liu Ming and the Celestial State, Thunder Beastkin, Lie Zhentian!
Liu Ming had also simulated a battle with Thunder Beastkin in the illusion before, but at that time he was mainly practicing his escape technique. Now, he planned to battle with Thunder Beastkin.
He didn’t have the extravagant hope of defeating a Celestial State cultivator, he just wanted to train his adaptability under the Celestial State cultivator.
A golden sword light was under Liu Ming’s feet, moving between several mountains and leaving a series of afterimages. The movement was extremely agile.
Behind him, Thunder Beastkin condensed a thick purple lightning and launched it at Liu Ming.
An earth shaking noise!
A small mountain in front turned into a pile of rubble at the moment the purple lightning struck.
Liu Ming, who was in front of him, dodged it easily with a twist of his figure. He wasn’t injured at all, and his speed seemed to have increased a little.
Thunder Beastkin roared and waved 1 arm. 2 thick purple spears were thrown at Liu Ming.
This time, Liu Ming did not dodge.
While the opponent was attacking, he turned his head quickly, groaned and launched a punch. As he channeled his spiritual power, black gas rolled out and condensed into 5 black mist dragons and 5 black mist tigers.
The 5 dragons and 5 tigers spouted rolling black flames at the incoming purple lightning spears.
However, those 2 purple lightning spears shot out more than a dozen lightning to sweep away the incoming black flames.
Liu Ming changed gestures swiftly; the 5 dragons and 5 tigers trembled and merged into a giant black beast with a pair of horns on its head and 4 claws on its feet.
This beast was more than 30 meters in size. It looked similar to a tiger and a dragon with black scales all over, looking lifelike like a living creature.
At the same time, a powerful aura radiated from it.
Liu Ming frowned and waved his arm suddenly.
The giant black beast immediately became blurred as it turned into a black wind that charged toward the lightning spears.
Seeing this, Thunder Beastkin sneered.
Without doing anything, the 2 purple lightning spears intertwined and burst out a dazzling lightning.
A shocking loud noise.
The purple lightning and the giant black beast collided together. The purple light and black light intertwined together, which seemed to be in a stalemate.
But at the next moment, after the giant black beast uttered a whine before collapsing.
Although the purple lightning spears crushed the giant black beast, its momentum was slowed by a little.
Liu Ming’s face turned pale, but after taking a deep breath, he launched a symbol at the golden flying sword under him.
The golden light burst out around him, instantly condensing into a 30 meters giant sword phantasm.
His speed was boosted instantly, just barely dodging the 2 lightning spears!
A burst of earth shattering loud noise!
Under the impact of 2 purple lightning spears, the mountain in front of Liu Ming burst out 2 dazzling thunder clouds.
After the lightning disappeared, 2 dark pits of more than 60 meters appeared on the mountain. Dense cobweb-like cracks spread from the deep pits to the surroundings of the mountain, and countless large and small rocks rolled down.
Seeing this, Thunder Beastkin let out an angry shout.
Liu Ming looked back at Thunder Beastkin deeply. After a while, his pale face had returned to normal.
He made a sword gesture, and the golden sword light bypassed the shaky mountain in front and continued to fly toward the distance.
After countless challenges, he knew all kinds of spells and casting habits of Thunder Beastkin well. Although he still couldn’t resist the Celestial State’s beastkin cultivator right now, he could still dodge his attacks easily.
Thunder Beastkin’s eyes burst out an intense murderous intent through the layers of lightning around him.
He waved and drew in the air, launching a thick purple lightning. It turned into a dozen serpentine lightnings and swept forward in a fan-shaped formation.
Each serpentine lightning was as thick as an arm. There were many short, forked lightning on it. The lightnings covered a large area, turning everything it touched into nothingness.
The lightning speed was also extremely fast. In a blink of an eye, they were less than 30 meters behind Liu Ming, about to strike him the next moment.
Liu Ming just took a sigh of relief, and he recognized this was a high rank lightning spell with just a glance. It was actually launched without channeling.
But under this kind of large-area attack, it was impossible for him to dodge. He made a gesture, and the golden sword qi disappeared back into his sleeve instead.
At the same time, he emitted a dazzling black light as he turned into a spinning black cloud.
In the black cloud, a green bull phantasm emerged with a low moo.
In the next moment, the purple lightnings had covered the area of 300 meters around him.
The dazzling purple light lit up the entire gloomy sky, but it faded quickly.
A deep hole appeared on the ground, which was 3 feet deep. It was charred.
At this moment, a black figure flew out; it was Liu Ming.
However, his body and clothes were charred; his hair stood up; black smokes even rose up from him.
“Bah, the high rank spell cast by Celestial State cultivator is really outrageous…” Liu Ming bah a few times with black smoke coming out from his mouth.
