AST 2447 – Three years passed, three years of changes

Tantai Lingyan left and melancholy crept up over Qing Shui. There was happiness mixed in his worry. He didn’t expect things to change in this manner, for their relationship to progress so quickly in such a short time. They grew a lot closer, and while they still weren’t husband and wife, they were different from before.

Humans were just this strange, especially Tantai Lingyan. The step they had taken before wasn’t just a leap but an acceptance. It was good enough that she could remember Qing Shui as a person. She trusted Qing Shui. In that step, there was guilt, a sense of compensation and a feeling that couldn’t be described.

The Divine Palace was gone, and the Demon Gate was about to leave. Qing Shui didn’t know how much longer he would stay there.

Qing Shui sensed his own strength. The dual cultivation they had just gone through increased his might significantly, it left him more than satisfied.


Time flew by. With a blink of an eye, three years had passed.

In those three years, Qing Shui held a firm footing in the Nine Stars Emperor City. Not only that, but the Imperial Cuisine Hall’s power in the Nine Stars Emperor City could also be considered colossal.

Ling Chen and Nuo Lan got married and gave birth to a son three months back.

Lao Husan became Qing Shui’s disciple, at least in the public eye. After three years, Lao Husan had become the in-charge for the Imperial Cuisine Hall and learned much in that time from cultivation to medical skills. It was important to have a famous teacher, and Qing Shui took on that role. Besides, Lao Husan had a unique physique, forming part of the reason why Qing Shui had taken him in.

The medical skills Qing Shui imparted to Lao Husan were simple, such as the Meridians Knocking Soul Pulling and the Five Elements Divine Needle. The remaining time was used to practice Bear Form of the Nine Animals Mimicry Technique. The Meridians Knocking Soul Pulling would let him diagnose the illness and the Five Elements Divine Needle could help him treat many complex illnesses.

Qing Shui understood the saying of biting more than one could chew and didn’t let Lao Husan learn too much. The Imperial Cuisine Hall had quite a few physicians so Lao Husan wouldn’t have to interfere for regular cases.

In addition, the cultivation of Qing Shui and the people around him had also improved at a rapid speed through these years. Qing Shui was now at Level Three Nurture God Realm. For three years, this progress was actually extremely fast, but Qing Shui had the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal, so it couldn’t be considered as such. Moreover, to break through to Level Three from Level One was comparatively the easiest.

Level Three Nurture God Realm allowed Qing Shui’s might to improve drastically.

Qing Shui’s might was at six trillion dao, and sixty trillion dao of defense.

The Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda of Defense increased it by about 20%, and so he reached seventy two trillion dao.

The Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda of Violence and the Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda added six trillion dao more of resistance. Qing Shui ended up with seventy eight trillion dao of defense.

Qing Shui’s Divine Weapon, the Flying Sword, could additionally reduce damage by 5.6 billion dao, which contributed to his defense, increasing it to a little above seventy eight trillion dao.

In addition, the attributes of Battle God Halo and formations, Area Dominance as well as battle techniques allowed Qing Shui to break through the level of a hundred and fifty trillion dao.

Among that, there was also the cultivation with Tantai Lingyan which helped increase it by much.

The Divine Weapon Flying Sword didn’t go through many changes in three years. It increased by a grade, reaching Grade Twenty-Eight.

The others had quality progress as well, from an accumulation of the past, and finally managed to break through. Hao Tian, Shen Huang, Massacre Battle God all entered the Nurture God Realm. Massacre Battle God and Shen Huang had even reached Level Two Nurture God Realm.

Qing Shui had the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal, but the others had their own treasures for training. Besides that, Qing Shui’s speed was far slower than the others.

As for tribulations, Qing Shui had the Tribulation Evasion Pill. Such a thing was incredibly useful. Without it, Qing Shui speculated that more than half of them would die trying to enter Nurture God Realm. With it, they could all smoothly pass through it.

Qing Shui’s ability now was still good. Beihuang Fan still remained in the Cave Realm but had opened her tenth cave. It wouldn’t be long before she broke into the Nurture God Realm.

At Level Three Nurture God Realm, Qing Shui’s caves were even stronger, especially his tenth cave which had six times the power…

The others’ power had also increased by one and a half times.

This was just Level Three Nurture God Realm. This allowed Qing Shui’s Primordial Golden Bear’s might to attain a terrifying increase in power. Along with the time it had to train, the Primordial Golden Bear had reached the Grand Perfection Stage; it wasn’t much different than a real Primordial Golden Bear now and had terrifying power.

Additionally, Qing Shui had refined several Blood Strengthening Pills, allowing the Primordial Dragon Elephant, the Dragon Slaying Beast, and the Dragon Spider’s blood to change drastically. Their bloodline had reached forty percent in purity and above. His Primordial Dragon Elephant was the highest, above seventy percent.

Primordial Dragon Elephant.

75% primordial bloodline, 45 trillion dao of power.

Primordial bloodline was the origin of the Primordial Dragon Elephant’s powers. It reduced damage to its body by 30%, increasing 30% of its own attacks while negating 40% of any adverse effects to its body. There was a 40% increase in resistance, and four times recovery on its body’s exhaustion and injury. Additionally, the increase was 40% on defense and toughness and 75% on speed and evasion. Primordial bloodline had a certain probability of breaking through before it could increase its abilities.

Mighty Dragon Elephant Stomp (Grand Perfection Stage): the aggressive attacks upon the ground had a certain probability in causing vertigo, causing numbness in its target and they would be unable to move.

Instantaneous Diamond Evasion: Able to take a leap within five kilometers in an instant!

Ferocious Dragon Elephant Attack: Attack a single target in an instant. Increase in attack, increase in penetration and strike through armor, increase in critical rate, and a small probability in bypassing defense!

Primordial Flames: Primordial Flames under Dragon Elephant’s feet would bring about a 30% chance of breaking through armor, increasing its speed in the air at the same time.

Primordial Body: Can attack any type of existence, increasing its body’s resistance at the same time.

Nine-Headed Demonic Dragon Spider, 55% primordial bloodline, at about 30 trillion dao of power.

Primordial bloodline was the origin of the Nine-Headed Demonic Dragon Spider’s powers. It reduced damage to its body by 45%, negating 55% of any adverse effects to its body. There was a 55% increase in resistance and triple recovery on its body’s exhaustion and injury. Additionally, the increase was 55% on defense and toughness and 75% on speed and evasion. Primordial bloodline had a certain probability of breaking through before it could increase its abilities.

Poison Web Entanglement: Nine-Headed Dragon Spider’s inescapable net would bring about corrosive poison, stickiness, and strong entanglement with its attack and reduced target’s speed while they were unable to twist out of it.

Poison Silk Tentacle: Nine-Headed Dragon Spider could attack from afar with poisonous silk and wrap around its victim. Its speed was extremely fast with increased venom and stickiness in the silk. Reducing even more speed while the target was unable to twist out of it.

Spider Silk Sky Net: Passive technique with zero exhaustion. Speed doubled and it would be able to form a huge net around it in an instant. Anything inside it would have its speed reduced.

Sharpness: Nine-Headed Dragon Spider’s sharpness of its eight legs was unmatched, in addition to having extremely strong poison and piercing effects.

Unyielding Shield: The defense of the Nine-Headed Dragon Spider was exceptionally strong.

Body Regeneration: Damaged body could be regenerated, requiring a hundred days at maximum. This could be shortened with an increase in primordial blood and abilities.

Divine Spider Thread: Allows the Nine-Headed Dragon Spider’s stickiness and toughness to increase significantly. A passive ability.

Dragon Slaying Beast, 45% primordial bloodline.

There weren’t many changes. Its powers multiplied especially in its speed. The Dragon Slaying Beast was an assassin-type beast. Its existence was for the purpose of massacre and was likewise known as the massacre beast.

This ability was without the help of the Heaven Shaking Drum and the Spirit Gathering Lamp, as well as Qing Shui’s assistance. Hence, with Qing Shui’s breakthrough, his demonic beasts would grow even more formidable accordingly. The Heaven Shaking Drum, the Spirit Gathering Lamp, along with Qing Shui’s Battle God Halo, formations and Nurture God Realm’s cave abilities would allow the Primordial Dragon Elephant and the Dragon spiders’ might to be on par with Qing Shui.
