Chapter 0380: Million Swords Formation
Every time he earned a fortune, he would spend everything immediately. From this, you could see how important these martial cultivation resources obtained through monetary means were.
He had spent more than 200 Inner Sea Essence Pills in one go by purchasing the Dragon Enslavement Heaven Imprisonment Technique, many spirit designs, immortal medicine materials, and improving his doppelgangers.
After he announced that he would be training in seclusion, no one would disturb him if there was nothing important.
His mind became very calm after leaving Shushan, especially when he was undergoing martial cultivation.
Perhaps it was because when the whole Shushan Immortal Sect was suppressing him and trying to change his dao, he persevered. Hence, now, when he was training, he could always see a clear pathway and the light ahead.
"If I could name this martial way, it would be to 'defy.’
"Defy, not to resist external things, but to be faithful to oneself.
"Of course, what I have achieved is just the tip of a mountain. It is a difference between heaven and earth for me to actually understand a martial way completely."
He still knew his own limitations.
Through the extension of the dao of the Dragon Enslavement Heaven Imprisonment Technique, he understood the spiritual core of the Heaven Earth Void technique.
The so-called Heaven Imprisonment, to even dare to imprison the heavens, would be the greatest “defy!”
After he thought it through, Wu Yu started to study this Heaven Earth Void technique. Suddenly, it became very simple! This was actually one of the reasons why he had chosen the Dragon Enslavement Heaven Imprisonment Technique!
When he read the brief introduction, he knew that out of the tens of thousands of Heaven Earth Void techniques, this suited him the most.
The Dragon Enslavement Heaven Imprisonment Technique had a total of eight levels.
In the first month, Wu Yu used his dao and understanding to find what his predecessors had achieved through repeated experiments and condensed the first enslaved dragon.
In the second month, the second enslaved dragon was born. The two dragons came out of the cave and intertwined with each other!
In the third month, as expected, the third enslaved dragon was born!
After six months, the seventh enslaved dragon was born!
Wu Yu had estimated that he would train in seclusion for six months. However, he was so close to succeeding in the Dragon Enslavement Heaven Imprisonment Technique, so he stayed for an extra month until he succeeded in the complete training of this Heaven Earth Void technique.
For a genius like him, more than six months was already considered a long time to learn a Heaven Earth Void technique.
After all, in the first 100 years or so of one’s life, it was basically the best period for martial cultivation. Many people had reached a very high position within that 100 year period. It would be very difficult to proceed after that.
Of course, Wu Yu did not devote all his energy to train in the Heaven Earth Void technique.
He had been very successful in spirit designs too. He had even created a spiritual immortal treasure! With the first one, it would be much easier to make more in the future.
He had also created many very powerful talismans. Although they were not of great use to him, he could still give them to his Yan Huang Immortal Soldiers.
He was also studying the Heaven and Earth Spirit Design. The Great City Protecting Spirit Design that Luo Pin had reinforced at Yunxi City had left a deep impression on him.
Due to geographical constraints, he could not set up a spirit design at the Heaven's Equal Camp. Even though he could not try it out, he had learned a lot. He could probably still try it after he found a place.
He learned quite a few Heaven and Earth Spirit Designs. One of which was called the Million Swords Formation. It was an upgraded version of the Heavenly Sword Sect's 10,000 Swords Formation.
Wu Yu had a special feeling towards the 10,000 Swords Formation.
The Million Swords Formation was very powerful. Wu Yu had spent 20,000 Golden Essence Pills to purchase this formation's drawing method.
"Next time I return to the Heavenly Sword Sect, I will try to reinforce the Heavenly Sword Sect with this Million Swords Formation. I will also arrange one for Capital Wu."
He already prepared the materials.
In fact, this was why he treasured the Million Swords Formation.
It was Wu Yu's past. He missed Wu You, the Heavenly Sword Sect, and the people there.
“Master, brethren, Senior Sister….”
Feng Xueya was probably still unaware that he had been expelled.
Wu Yu wanted to go back.
In refining immortal medicines, he could already refine hundreds of them, which was unparalleled amongst his peers.
In addition, he had taken half a year to refine his Jindan and understand dao. Creating spirit designs especially helped him in refining his Jindan. He was now in a bottleneck.
He knew very clearly that he could easily reach the ninth tier of the Jindan Dao Realm if he had enough Inner Sea Essence Pills.
Of course, this meant that he needed a huge amount of Inner Sea Essence Pills.
Because his doppelgangers could also be improved....
Besides, Wu Yu had also spent a lot of time studying the Unshackled Doppelganger Great Dao Mystique. He could probably reach the third tier soon. What he needed was a just a little inspiration.
Before he ended his training in seclusion, Wu Yu decided on his future goals.
“The earnings from my previous mission have been depleted. I have improved a lot. Now I need to take another mission. 200 Inner Sea Essence Pills are far from enough. For my growth, I need more!
“Missions... I’m definitely going to choose ones that involves ghostly cultivators!
“I’m going to choose the edge of the East Sea! That is where most ghostly cultivators are. It is also the place where I can most easily gain great earnings. Also, Dong Yue Wu is on the way. I can visit home.”
Wu Yu looked at the map of the divine continent. He considered the East Sea, the land ruled by the Tianyi Race, as his future battleground. That place was far from the Shushan Immortal Sect in the west but near the ghostly cultivators of the East Sea's Endless Islands. That is the place where the ghostly cultivators harmed the highest number of people. Ghostly cultivators like Dong Yue Wu's Spectral Concubine and the Scarlet Sea's Seven Ghosts are everywhere in that area.
They have great amounts of wealth. They themselves were Yan Huang Imperial City’s merits!
They attacked the mortals of the Three Thousand Immortal Kingdom because mortals were aplenty. There were millions of mortals. To the ghostly cultivators, these mortals were a never-ending supply of livestock to be killed.
Of course, missions involving the East Sea's ghostly cultivators were more popular.
Every year, quite a lot of Yan Huang Immortal Soldiers died at the East Sea.
Ghostly cultivators moved like ghosts. They did not have any bases, so it would not be easy to seek revenge.
“I will depend on you guys for the resources I need for training!”
On this day, Wu Yu came out of seclusion. The brothers and sisters of the Heaven's Equal Camp had waited for a long time to celebrate for him.
Wu Yu was also generous. He took out the immortal medicines and talismans that he had made and distributed them. He had no use for these, but to most Jindan Dao cultivators, these were very useful.
“Commander Wu, what plans do you have next?” the young, handsome, scholarly Fang Chaoqun asked.
Wu Yu said, “I’m going to the Yi Palace to take a mission. I've been too poor recently.”
When everyone heard this, they started saying, “Then bring us along!”
“We heard that at the Yi Palace, there are missions that require the whole camp to go together. We are not asking for any returns. We just want to go out on missions with you.”
“Yes, Commander Wu, our Heaven's Equal Camp is still not famous in Yan Huang Imperial City.”
Wu Yu laughed. “I cannot promise you this now because the missions that I choose might be highly dangerous. There is the danger of death any time. I’m afraid of bringing harm to you guys.”
Among the people, the younger and more reckless Wu Tianyu said, “Commander Wu, you are being distant. We who walk the road of martial cultivation are not people who fear death!
“We cannot understand dao without experiencing life and death! We are like you - we also have the determination to become immortal!”
Everyone was passionate.
Since that was the case, Wu Yu thought for a while before saying, “While I cannot promise you guys that you will come with me, if I see a suitable mission, I will return to get your opinions.”
"You don’t have to ask for our opinions. No matter what mission it is, we will follow you!”
"You guys will come along even if I’m going to the East Sea to kill ghostly cultivators?” Wu Yu asked seriously.
“We’ll go! Speaking of that, we are older than you. We might not have killed fewer ghostly cultivators than you.”
Indeed, they were all very mature. There were even some middle-aged individuals who had been cultivating for over 100 years. In the mortal world, someone at this age could already be Wu Yu’s great grandfather.
The Yi Palace did indeed have missions with camps as the basic unit.
These missions were usually more dangerous because they required a lot of manpower. Perhaps the area of surveillance was wider and the number of enemies was extremely high.
Of course, this was also the only chance for the average Yan Huang Immortal Soldier to take a Middle Yi Palace mission.
“If I can train Unshackled Doppelganger to the third level, then I can have over 100 doppelgangers. Basically, I’ll be a single person bringing a whole military unit!
“Of course, it would be a very strong military unit that will never die!”
Unshackled Doppelganger had a total of 10 levels.
Wu Yu was still using the Great Sage, Heaven's Equal's legacy to thoroughly understand this so-called Heaven Dao Mystique. He was taking it one step at a time.
The mystique was mysterious. It was similar to the insignia on Jindan and spirit designs. Wu Yu was slowly perfecting the insignia for Unshackled Doppelganger right now. He would soon complete the drawings for the third level.
The next day, Wu Yu arrived at the Yi Palace.
Half a year had passed. The Middle Yi Palace still looked the same. There were more than 10 centurions looking for suitable missions here.
“Commander Wu, we have not seen each other in some time.” Some centurions recognized him and greeted him.
“Yes, I was training in seclusion.”
“That’s right, I heard that you went out with Qin Fuyao. I’m so envious. Many people want that opportunity but don’t have the luck.” Another centurion at the other side laughed.
Wu Yu also laughed.
“Looks like you earned a lot from that mission. After returning, we did not see you for half a year. We also did not see Commander Luo. Even Qin Fuyao, who usually likes to hang around here, has disappeared.”
“They are both training in seclusion as well?”
No wonder there was no news from the Blue Dragon Camp.
Luo Pin was an extraordinarily strong person. There was no doubt about that. Qin Fuyao was training in seclusion. Perhaps when she came out, she would already be a second tier Violet Kingdom of the Inner Sea cultivator.
Nangong Wei and the others were probably already at the third tier.
Thinking of that, he felt a little stressed.
He now lacked Inner Sea Essence Pills. Hence, he quickly browsed through the missions. He chose missions with destinations near the East Sea that had ghostly cultivators as opponents.
Since Fang Chaoqun and the others had mentioned it, Wu Yu was also paying attention to group missions.
After choosing for half a day, Wu Yu finally found one.
