Although the participants had entered the Tower Condensation stage, Chen Rui still remained in the comprehension stage of the previous ‘Star Rise’. Even the shift in the ranking space could not interrupt his contemplation.
Chen Rui gave up the huge advantage of the lead, which was equivalent to giving up the Starfall and Tower Condensation, but he did not get entangled with these because the Super System was a different road. He came here to get the insight he wanted. It was not necessary to become participants of the Star Tower step by step. If he could comprehend a trace of law that could only be mastered at a kingdom-level, Starfall or Tower Condensation couldn’t be compared with this kind of gain.
Now it was tantamount to abolishing his own thoughts and starting from the beginning. Due to the different angles of mind, what he saw and what he would see must be very different from the original.
Chen Rui, who started afresh, was about to grasp something, but he missed it again. Next, he gave up again. He was quite bold this time. What he gave up was not only the previous use of the star power to grasp the kingdom, but also all his initial comprehension.
He was like the little otaku who just crossed over to the Demon Realm, re-experiencing Alkaid state, Mizar state, Alioth State…
After a long time, Chen Rui opened his eyes and finally understood what realization he had caught.
It was not law, nor kingdomized, but the foundation.
As a crossover, he was fortunate to have the trump card of the Super System. In just a few years, he changed from a powerless weakling to a powerhouse standing at the peak stage (in the general category). However, Chen Rui knew very well that he had never been a genius in comprehending. Although relying on the trump card and his unremitting efforts plus a little luck, he had reached the point where he was today, his foundation was not solid compared to those powerhouses who had trained hundreds or even thousands of years.
The disparity was huge. He didn’t feel anything before, but now the gap was more obvious when he touched the higher-level strength. This was the biggest reason why he could faintly touch the law, but he still couldn’t really grasp it.
The evolution of the Super System requires more initiative and comprehension as I reach higher levels instead of relying on the passive ‘growth’ of the system. Law is a new starting point to enter the Demi-God level. If I continue to develop as it is, even if I barely passed this threshold, I will not be able to exert the strongest combat power due to my weak foundation. My future advancement will be more and more difficult, and it may even stop for the rest of my life.
Thinking of this, Chen Rui was suddenly sweating in fear. Fortunately, there is still time now. I will not touch the law again, but I will refine my existing strength. Before the qualitative change, I first let my quantitative change reach the best condition.
The Star Tower is the best tempering environment.
Chen Rui’s mind moved. He had previously guided the power of the Star Tower with the Star Power and faintly realized the origin of the Star Tower. That was why he emitted the golden light that transcended everything. Now he no longer deliberately pursued this law, but he regained this kind of comprehension and integrated his Star Power into the pure and incomparable star power in space. This process was unexpectedly smooth.
The trial of the Star Tower had entered the final Tower Condensation stage. There were many dazzling towers that were intertwined into a circular network with the blue tower in the center. The connection between the upper and lower lines of the pyramid had begun to be exerted. The starlight surged toward the center and returned to the surroundings again. It was equivalent to a cyclic ‘life entity’.
Among the various tall light towers, the simple starlight on Chen Rui’s side that was not in the shape of a tower was particularly eye-catching.
The magic mirror was instantly bright and brilliant. The degree of dazzling brilliance covered the Star Tower which everyone condensed.
Everyone was shocked. Their first reaction was that the golden light reflected by the magic mirror was ‘resurrected’. Everyone was dumbfounded. It turned out that the weakest guy is actually the strongest genius just now!
Unfortunately, the rise of this golden light is now too late. It missed the power of Starfall. He can’t condense into a tower, so how can it obtain the true power of the Star Tower?
The participants in the Star Tower also thought so, including Landbis, 1 of the 3 tallest towers in the central area. Compared with Landbis’ eye-catching beauty, she had been keeping a low profile in other aspects, especially her strength. Today, she finally showed her glory and jumped into the top 3 of the Star Tower. It was very likely that she would directly enter the real Saint level. As for the genius who once shone incomparably and quickly dimmed in the star rise level, even if he re-arised, it was too late. He would be a loser in the end. Perhaps this person had higher aptitude and understanding than all the geniuses present, but having the conditions for success did not necessarily mean success. This was reality.
The light still did not condense into a tower shape, but it shone more and more unbelievably bright. In the boundless starry sky, all the starlight cast was concentrated on this light. The dazzling feeling of the light gradually faded, and it was replaced by a kind of crystal clear light. It was like a sword that was constantly refined in the tempering of the furnace.
The overall structure of the ‘Star Tower’ of 200 people changed suddenly. Everyone felt that the circulation of the star power in the small tower was getting faster and faster while the power was getting stronger and stronger. However, the core was not the 3 highest towers, but the light that didn’t form a tower at all!
“How is it possible?” In front of the magic mirror, another Deputy Dean Iridan murmured, “His star ranked last, and he did not gain any power from Starfall…”
Under such circumstances, it became the strongest ‘Star Tower’. This was unprecedented.
“There is only one explanation.” Regiana stared closely at the shining stars with his eyes flashing in disbelief, “He has escaped the restriction of the rule, although I don’t understand how he did it…”
There was no doubt that this would be the most incredible scene in the history of the Star Tower. In fact, the shock had just begun.
The stars in the sky moved slowly. It was not a single star, but the rhythm of the entire starry sky seemed to echo the stars. The stars rose higher and higher. Everyone including the participants in space had an illusion that the star blossoms blended into the entire starry sky.
After the stars merged into the starry sky, they gradually disappeared. The vast starry sky that originally seemed ethereal was full of vitality in an instant. The largest star in the center began to be as hot and dazzling as the sun. The trajectories of the surrounding stars also changed strangely and began to revolve around the ‘sun’.
Landbis looked up at the starry sky with a self-deprecating smile. What if there is no Tower Condensation? That ray of light does not need these. That talent is the existence that controls the entire starry sky while we who rely on the power that descended from the sky to condense the Star Tower can only look up to him.
This is a world’s difference.
With the vast sea of warmth, the soul and the Star Power were constantly being refined. Chen Rui felt very wonderful at this moment. He had completely integrated the power of the Super System into this star space.
Various mystical rhythms, power, and even comprehension close to the law flashed past his mind, but Chen Rui did not waver and did not try to capture them. No matter what appeared, he just focused his mind in order to use the origin Star Power of the Super System to wholeheartedly refine the most basic Star Power.
All of a sudden, crisscrosses of fiery red chains appeared, which were suffocating. Under the pressure of the starlight, the fiery red chains became more and more dimmed before they finally dissipated. Countless scattered sparks were devoured by the starry sky and disappeared without a trace.
Soon after, a huge ball appeared, which looked like a huge eye, emitting a weird breath. This breath was quickly broken down, and traces of starlights wrapped the huge eye. Unlike the fiery red chains, this giant eye did not collapse, but the blackness in the “pupil” was constantly washed away by the crystal light until it became colorless. Gradually, the giant eye completely merged with the surrounding stars and disappeared into the starry sky.
After these 2 changes, the crystal clear starry sky became more and more condensed. Many participants at the Star Tower below were surprised and delighted when they sensed the further sublimation of the power obtained. They seized the opportunity to absorb the comprehension of the power.
Chen Rui had a bigger surprise in his mind at this moment. Just now, he tried to fuse the power of the starry sky to impact the Shackles of True Flame in his body, and it actually worked at one try. The Shackles of True Flame, which still had to be absorbed for nearly half a year, had been completely absorbed by the Super System.
This meant that the law power of the Shackles of True Flame, which had been constraining Chen Rui, was completely absorbed by the Super System. At the same time, the restriction of faith transformation was also canceled. In other words, he could now freely activate the 6-star evolution [Blue Pole Star Transformation], the strongest combat skills!
The second surprise was that Sariel’s Evil Moon Sigil was assimilated by the Super System, completely losing its threats. Not only that, it meant that Evil Pupil had completely become Chen Rui’s own strength and he could control it independently from Sariel’s control. Under Chen Rui’s deliberate control, the spiritual imprint of Sariel was retained. This way, he could continue to maintain a certain connection with Sariel so that he would not notice the abnormal change of the Evil Moon Sigil.
All the laws of the Shackles of True Flame and the Evil Moon Sigil were absorbed by the Super System, but Chen Rui’s mood was now completely different from before. He was not eager to comprehend or absorb. Instead, he put aside distracting thoughts and focused on using the origin of the star space to refine and strengthen the Star Power. His strength was also slowly rising in this kind of rejuvenation.
Gradually, Chen Rui had a strange feeling in his mind – The space of the Star Tower didn’t seem to be real. It seems to be someone’s… projection?
What really dominates this projection is a trace of power that is indescribable in words, which resembles the law like the truth in the universe. At first glance, it feels simple, easy to understand and within reach, yet it is extremely mysterious and beyond reach when I focus on comprehending it.
Chen Rui tried to use soul power to comprehend and touch this ‘truth’. As soon as he got close, the whole soul trembled as if a balloon was blown to its maximum limit in an instant, and it would explode in the blink of an eye.
At this time, the role of the Super System was immediately brought into play, eliminating all the ‘gas’ of the ‘balloon’. Chen Rui regained his composure and took advantage of this opportunity to get rid of that terrifying comprehension with all his strength. He was so shocked and drenched in a cold sweat.
