Although Luo Hu promised to help at the cost of his vitality, he still had to do his part. It wasn’t his style to pin his hope on someone else.
After Liu Ming thought so, he slowly walked toward the door.
As soon as he stepped out of the cave house, he turned into a golden light and flew toward the main peak of Fallen Serene Peak.
Just a few days ago, he received the news that Yin Jiuling had returned to Fallen Serene Peak through the disk array. It happened that he had also finished his retreat, so he planned to visit and inquire about breaking the bottleneck of the Real Pellet State.
When he was reading the books in the Scriptures Pavilion, he had also learned about the condensation of the Real Pellet in detail. He knew very well that condensing the Real Pellet was a very important stage on the road of cultivation. He had to ask Yin Jiuling about the mystery in it.
10 minutes later, in the center of a hall near the main peak of Fallen Serene Peak, Yin Jiuling held a cup of fragrant spiritual tea on the main seat and took a few sips from time to time.
Liu Ming in the Fallen Serene Peak costume was standing in front of him.
“Very good! It seems that your trip to the Ouyang Family has gone well, and you seem to have consolidated the Pseudo Pellet State as well.” Yin Jiuling said with a slight smile.
“Disciple was able to enter the Pseudo Pellet State so smoothly thanks to master’s help, otherwise how can I break through the bottleneck so easily?” Liu Ming bowed respectfully to Yin Jiuling and said.
“I have only accepted Xiao Wu and you as my direct disciples in my life, I of course hope that you 2 can be better than your peers. By the way, you should be thinking about hitting the bottleneck of the Real Pellet State right?” Yin Jiuling waved his hand and said lightly.
“Master is right. Disciple is here to ask master about condensing the Real Pellet.” Liu Ming replied with a nod.
“Right, it is better to plan earlier for breaking the bottleneck of the Real Pellet State.” Yin Jiuling stroked his sleeve robe lightly and nodded in agreement.
“It’s not easy to reach the Pseudo Pellet State, but to put it bluntly, it can only be regarded as the early preparations for condensing the Real Pellet. The final step of crushing the crystal to form a pellet has a very low success rate without external help. This is different from the previous advancement. Not only does it need the cultivator to have good aptitude, but he also has to go through countless life and death battles to stimulate the inner potential. Only then he can have a glimpse of opportunity to condense Real Pellet.”
“In the entire Middle Sky Continent, there are countless people who have been stuck at the Pseudo Pellet State for decades or even hundreds of years. Do you know why?” Yin Jiuling said so, and he paused again.
“It must be because this opportunity is extremely difficult to obtain?” Liu Ming replied after thinking for a while.
“This is just one aspect of it! Before Xiao Wu asked to enter the Evil Ghost Way so that she can keep training in such extremely dangerous circumstances and seek this opportunity. However, this opportunity is not easy to get, but those who can advance to the Pseudo Pellet State in our Taiqing Sect aren’t simple either. Many of them are still able to grasp this opportunity. The main reason is that the process of condensing Real Pellet is extremely dangerous. Most people failed at this stage. Once the real pellet has failed to condense, one’s vitality will be severely damaged. His cultivation will even drop by several realms as well. Although it isn’t difficult to recover to the original cultivation, he needs at least 6 years if not more than a dozen years before he can condense the Pseudo Pellet again. However, the previous failure will have a great impact on his mental state, so the difficulty will be increased even more and the chance of success will be even slimmer.”
“Is there any way to increase the chances of condensing the Real Pellet!” Liu Ming was a little surprised, but he immediately asked nervously.
“After you have reached this level, there is little external help that can help you to break through the bottleneck. Even if there is, you can’t get it so easily. But generally speaking, the more spiritual power crystals, the purer the spiritual power, the more likely it is to condense the Real Pellet.” Yin Jiuling said without thinking.
“Oh! Master must be suggesting me to temper my spiritual power more.” Liu Ming murmured.
“If you can endure loneliness and temper your spiritual power a few times, it will naturally be of great benefit when condensing the Real Pellet. Hehe, it’s a pity that although everyone knows this truth, how many people can endure the cultivation stagnation for dozens or even hundreds of years to just temper spiritual power?” Yin Jiuling laughed.
Liu Ming heard the words and showed a thoughtful look.
“Besides, after reaching the Real Pellet State, there is still power difference between the Real Pellet State cultivators. According to the quality of the Real Pellet, it can be divided into Three Holes of Inferior Grade, Six Holes of Intermediate Grade, Nine Holes of Upper Grade, and Twelve Holes of Superb Grade. Thus, condensing Real Pellet is a very important step. If you want to go further in the road of cultivation, it’s best to condense the upper grade or even the superb grade Real Pellet. At the very least, it must be the intermediate grade. There is no lack of Real Pellet State cultivators in the Middle Sky Continent, but most of them forcibly condense the Three Holes of Inferior Grade Real Pellet through external help. They didn’t even find a glimpse of opportunity. These Real Pellet State cultivators can’t even fight against the Crystallization Period disciples of the 4 ancient sects. So, if you want to be successful in the road of cultivation, you must keep this in mind!”
“Disciple will remember master’s teachings!” Liu Ming replied respectfully, but his thoughts turned sharply.
Although he had an extraordinary 153 spiritual power crystals and his spiritual power had been refined by mysterious small bubbles, which made his spiritual power much purer than the ordinary cultivator, he would never think that he could rashly condense Real Pellet now.
After all, according to Yin Jiuling’s words, once the condense failed, it would be even more difficult to condense for the second time. If he used external help to forcibly condense Real Pellet, he could only condense the inferior grade Real Pellet. Of course, he didn’t want to see this result.
Regarding the trials of life and death mentioned by Yin Jiuling, although he had experienced countless battles in the illusion, because those were just illusions, he didn’t have the life and death experience.
As for how to break through and condense Real Pellet after finding an opportunity, he needed to find some help. At least, Luo Hu promised to help him in it.
It seemed that if he wanted to find a glimpse of opportunity to break through the Real Pellet State, he needed to be like his “Senior Sister Wu”.
“Master, disciple also wants to enter the Evil Ghost Way to look for the opportunity to find a breakthrough.” After some thought, Liu Ming said with a solemn expression.
“Judging from your Tianmen Convention performance and your current cultivation, it’s okay to apply to enter the Evil Ghost Way. But in recent decades, there have been many applications from the 4 ancient sects to enter the Evil Ghost Way, so the current quota is very low. Even if I recommend you, you have to pay a certain amount of sect contribution points to enter. In addition, the Evil Ghost Way is very dangerous, and Xiao Wu has not returned for decades, so you better do as much preparation as possible and improve your own strength.” Yin Jiuling did not show any surprise when he heard this. After some thought, he nodded and agreed.
“Thank you, master.” Liu Ming thanked him with a little joy.
“By the way, there is one more thing. Esoteric Elder Han wants to see you. It seems that he intends to use a unique sword mystic art in exchange for half of the star river sand in your hands. You can go there when you are free.” Yin Jiuling suddenly changed the subject and said lightly.
“Esoteric Elder Han, star river sand! Disciple understands.” Liu Ming was stunned at first, but he immediately agreed.
This Esoteric Elder Han was naturally the elder in a gray robe who accompanied Sect Master Tian Ge to the Tianmen Convention. It wasn’t strange for him to know that Liu Ming got star river sand from the Tianmen Secret Realm.
“Don’t worry, although Elder Han came from the Tianjian Peak, he has a good relationship with our peak. You will definitely not suffer a loss in this exchange. His cave house is in the mountain behind the Tianjian Peak. You just have to ask around after reaching there.” Yin Jiuling said with a smile.
After that, Yin Jiuling chatted with Liu Ming and gave him 2 bottles of elixir to consolidate his realm, he waved his sleeve robe to see off Liu Ming.
After saying goodbye to Yin Jiuling, he left the cave house and went to the Tianjian Peak where Elder Han was.
Along the way, Liu Ming happened to pass by the Hall of All Things, so he went in to inquire about the Evil Ghost Way.
As a result, after asking, he learned that it needed 1 million contribution points and a token of the peak master to enter the Evil Ghost Way.
In order to repay the 4 million contribution points he owed before, he now has very little left in his hands, but he was not too worried. Just the contribution points distributed to the inner disciple every month had 400,000 to 500,000 after decades. In addition, he could spend some time taking more xuan notice tasks.
An hour later, outside an inconspicuous small mountain behind the Tianjian Peak, a black escape light shot out.
As he just entered a few miles within the peak, he sensed a thick spirit rushing to his face.
The scenery in front changed slightly, and a magnificent gray stone gate a dozen meters tall at the foot of the mountain was suddenly visible. Above the stone gate was a 6 meters sword. The giant sword seemed to be flickering with spiritual light.
After Liu Ming landed before the stone gate, he touched the giant sword on the stone gate.
The next moment, he just felt a faint green sword qi shuttled softly between his fingertips as if it had spirituality. It was very wonderful.
Just as he was about to knock on the gate, the green giant sword above the stone gate suddenly flashed, and the stone gate slowly opened. A low and hoarse voice came from inside.
“You should be Nephew Disciple Liu, come in.”
When Liu Ming heard the words, he immediately responded with a respectful expression and walked over.
He entered the stone gate, passed through an ordinary gray stone corridor with a length of more than 30 meters and came to a hall with an area of only 30 meters.
The place where the Celestial State esoteric elder lived was much simpler than Yin Jiuling’s cave house.
