Chapter 556: Opening the Five Gates

Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation

In the night sky, stars twinkled as Chen Fei stood in the secret chamber, feeling his energy slowly rising.

Since he had decided to head to the frontline, apart from the necessary preparations, he knew he had to upgrade the techniques within his spatial grid to the strongest ones.

During the recent breakthrough to the mid-stage of the Combined Aperture Tempering realm, Chen Fei had already stored a new sword element within the spatial grid. At that time, this sword element could be considered the strongest state.

However, with the birth of the Profound Heavenly Sword, although Chen Fei’s cultivation had not changed much due to the short time, the advancement in martial arts level still further enhanced his combat power.

During these ten days, Chen Fei had almost not slept, continuously practicing his martial arts, and improving the proficiency of the Profound Heavenly Sword.


However, the time was simply too short. The Profound Heavenly Sword was still in the state of mastery, and there was still a long way to go before reaching perfection.

But at least these ten days of continuous practice and insight had somewhat advanced the proficiency of the Profound Heavenly Sword by a small step.

For other martial artists, even those geniuses in the top powers, it would be utterly impossible to achieve the level of martial arts insight Chen Fei gained in these ten days without several years of effort.

Blood Ignition Technique!

Chen Fei’s blood began to boil within his body, and a layer of blood flames ignited on his skin.

This was one of the earliest forbidden techniques Chen Fei possessed, using specially stored blood to burn, thus not affecting his own blood at all.

So, while it was called a forbidden technique, it was not much different from ordinary secret techniques. Its advantage lay in its great power, without any side effects.

Aperture-Cracking Technique! Heart-Breaking Technique!

Two more forbidden techniques surged, and Chen Fei’s aura began to rise dramatically.

Previously, when dealing with Kou Yuanheng, Chen Fei had used all three forbidden techniques at once. Compared to back then, now, if Chen Fei were to simultaneously unleash three forbidden techniques again, his control over the raging elemental force would be even more effortless.

The emergence of the Profound Heavenly Sword technique not only raised Chen Fei’s limits but also made his usual control over elemental force more delicate.

A top-tier technique would not have obvious flaws and would excel in every aspect.

Transmutation Art! Life and Death Reversal!

Two more forbidden techniques were cast, and Chen Fei’s aura burst forth like boiling oil. If it weren’t for the obstruction of the chamber’s formation, the gazes of the entire Primordial Sword Sect would likely be drawn over at this moment.

Chen Fei’s originally robust body began to grow thin. This was the effect of the Life and Death Reversal technique, much more domineering than the Blood Ignition Technique.

The Blood Ignition Technique merely burns essence blood, although it is still quite harmful to the body, at least there is a limit to it.

However, the Life and Death Reversal recorded in the Withering Prosperity Scripture reverses the vitality within the body, turning it into death qi, then collides them against each other, detonating even greater power.

This forbidden technique, if not controlled properly, could be extremely dangerous, with the risk of self-harm even before the enemy is affected.

But correspondingly, it is also the most powerful among several forbidden techniques in terms of power amplification.

With five forbidden techniques simultaneously cast, even with Chen Fei’s current physique and his almost abnormal recovery ability, he was starting to struggle.

Blood beads seeped out from Chen Fei’s pores, cracks appeared on his skin, but immediately healed, repeating this cycle.

Thick veins began to appear on Chen Fei’s forehead and cheeks, the sound of blood flowing like a river, surging and roaring, causing the surrounding vitality of heaven and earth to continuously tremble.

Ripples emanated from Chen Fei’s body, colliding with the formation in the chamber, creating waves.

Chen Fei looked ahead, let out a low growl, took a step forward with his right foot, and wielded a spiritual treasure in his hand, thrusting forward with a sword.

The spiritual treasure was a broken ruler, but it didn’t hinder Chen Fei from using it as a sword.

Nowadays, the remaining power of this spiritual treasure is not much, probably not much different from a superior-grade magic treasure, or even inferior in some aspects.

It only retains some auxiliary functions, resembling the appearance of the spiritual treasure from years ago.

However, even so, the power of the broken ruler is still much stronger than the current Qianyuan Sword. Only by using the spiritual treasure to absorb Chen Fei’s power can it be considered Chen Fei’s strongest move at present.

As Chen Fei thrusts with this sword, a dazzling light bursts forth from the broken ruler, gathering immense power.

Even though the attack did not hit the formation in the chamber, at this moment, the formation violently trembles as if it’s about to shatter in the next moment.


A vortex suddenly forms in the chamber, and after the formation trembles for a while, it gradually calms down.

Chen Fei maintains his thrusting motion, feeling as if every part of his body, including his internal organs, has been crushed.

The five forbidden techniques have long been stopped. If they hadn’t ceased, Chen Fei might have truly been drained by the forbidden techniques.

After a moment, Chen Fei recovers his strength and lets out a sigh.

Looking at the new light spot appearing in the spatial grid, a smile creeps onto Chen Fei’s face.

Only in such invincible situations can Chen Fei unleash forbidden techniques like this.

Opening all five forbidden techniques pushed Chen Fei’s body to the brink of collapse. Even the recovery ability of the Suppressing Dragon Elephant, which could almost regenerate severed limbs, couldn’t withstand the eruption of this power.

In a combat scenario, if Chen Fei were to unleash all five forbidden techniques and direct the attacks at the enemy, the rebounding forces would become the last straw that breaks the camel’s back, causing his body to completely collapse.

Moreover, the process of battle changes in an instant, making it difficult to say whether there would be time and energy to adjust to the raging power within his body in such a situation.

Sitting cross-legged on the ground, Chen Fei took out a pill and swallowed it, then closed his eyes to regulate his breath.

Although his body didn’t collapse just now, it was still in a critical state. It would probably take several days for Chen Fei to recover to his usual standard.

Fortunately, with the Profound Suppressing Dragon Elephant reaching perfection and his physique advancing to the late stage of the Combined Aperture Tempering realm, Chen Fei’s recovery ability had also improved.

Otherwise, with the hidden injuries in his body at the moment, it would take at least a month to recover, if not more.

Of course, the ability to recover in just one month as before would be jaw-dropping to other martial artists if they knew.

And now, being able to recover from such injuries in just a few days was something even the races known for their strong recovery abilities, like demons, would find hard to achieve.

While Chen Fei was repairing the hidden injuries in his body, rumors about the conscription of martial artists from various factions in the Thousand Feather Alliance became more and more abundant.

Finally, on the sixth day, the detailed regulations regarding the conscription of warriors to the frontline were announced by the Thousand Feather Alliance.

As many had anticipated, for fourth-tier factions, the number of slots for Combined Aperture Tempering realm warriors continued to increase, with at least one person required from the initial stage of the Combined Aperture Tempering realm.

For third-tier or higher factions, the most elite force must send one representative. For example, a third-tier faction must send someone from the mid-stage of the Combined Aperture Tempering realm, while a second-tier faction must send someone from the late stage.

Even top-tier factions like the Fengwu Pavilion must send someone from the peak of the Combined Aperture Tempering realm.

The Thousand Feather Alliance was sending all of its top-tier forces to the frontline.

“Leader Min is personally commanding the frontline now,” Qin Haishan whispered in the courtyard.

Chen Fei nodded. After six days of healing, his previous injuries had completely healed.

Min Tinglu, as a Mountain Sea Realm powerhouse, was already on the frontline, so it was reasonable to summon others. Currently, another Mountain Sea Realm expert was overseeing the overall situation in the central alliance of the Thousand Feather Alliance.

“The alliance requires us to report to the frontline within ten days. When should we set out?” Zhao Tianxuan asked.

Qin Haishan and the others looked at Chen Fei. With their speed in the Combined Aperture Tempering realm, it wouldn’t take long to reach the frontline. However, bringing along the Combined Aperture Tempering realm disciples from their sect would definitely take some extra time.

“Let’s depart in five days,” Chen Fei said after a moment of thought, deciding to use the remaining time for additional preparation.


Setting out in five days meant that even with the Combined Aperture Tempering realm disciples from their sect, they would arrive at the frontline by the eighth day at the latest. Even if there were delays along the way, it wouldn’t affect their reporting.

Half an hour later, Qin Haishan and the others left. Chen Fei watched their figures disappear, his brows furrowing.

This time, not only Chen Fei but also more than half of the Combined Aperture Tempering realm disciples from the Primordial Sword Sect would be mobilized.

Compared to other sects, although the number of Combined Aperture Tempering realm disciples in the Primordial Sword Sect had increased in recent years, most of them were only at the initial stage. Those at the mid-stage and especially the late stage were few.

In this frontline war, if it escalated slightly, it would likely deplete the resources of the Primordial Sword Sect.

Chen Fei shook his head. There was no better option. At most, he would let his doppelganger accompany the disciples from the Primordial Sword Sect. As long as they didn’t encounter sea demons above the third rank, the doppelganger would be sufficient to protect them.

However, on the frontline, there were too many sea demons above the third rank. Avoiding them would be incredibly difficult.

Chen Fei sat cross-legged in the courtyard, continuing to cultivate the Profound Heavenly Sword technique. Strength, as with many things, relied on consistent daily accumulation, even if there were occasional leaps.

Due to the tense situation on the frontline, the prices of various cultivation resources in the Sea Peak City skyrocketed. Especially healing sacred medicines, their prices reached an exaggerated level.

Fortunately, on Chen Fei’s instructions, the Primordial Sword Sect had previously stockpiled many of these resources, so there was no need to worry about a shortage of pills.

Time passed quickly, and in the blink of an eye, five days had gone by. Five massive ships departed from the Sea Peak City, heading towards the frontline.

Chen Fei sat cross-legged in the cabin, eyes closed in meditation, while also sensing subtle changes in his body.

In the past few days, Chen Fei had not noticed, but recently he had realized that the recovery ability of the Suppressing Dragon Elephant seemed to have become stronger.

From the moment he broke through to the mid-stage of the Combined Aperture Tempering realm to the two extreme trials of exerting his body in the past few days, not only did it not cause his physique to collapse, but it also further stimulated his recovery power.

It had to be admitted that as the foundation, the Suppressing Dragon Elephant possessed truly formidable abilities. If the third part of the Soul Suppression could be completed, the power of the Suppressing Dragon Elephant would probably be even more terrifying.

Three days passed in the blink of an eye, and the ships arrived at the forefront, the Sea Dominion City.

The Sea Dominion City served as the foremost stronghold of the Thousand Feather Alliance. If the sea demons didn’t remove this stronghold, they would be vulnerable to a pincer attack, with no escape route.

As the ships entered the Sea Dominion City, the Combined Aperture Tempering realm disciples were taken away after registration, while Chen Fei and his companions headed to the Lord’s Mansion to receive their arrangements.

Suddenly, Chen Fei’s heart stirred as he spotted a familiar face, Chen Daoheng from the Fallen Heaven Pavilion.

Chen Fei remained composed and continued to follow the steward towards their destination without making a sound..
