Chapter 1073 Recruitmen
When the commotion the Tianyuan Region caused in Hunyuan Heaven gradually subsided, the news about the Battle of the Heavens began to spread from the nine regions and once again set off even greater commotions throughout Hunyuan Heaven.
To countless beings in Hunyuan Heaven, the Battle of the Heavens would undoubtedly seem a little unfamiliar because it had been a long time since the last.
But once news about the battle spread, it very quickly evoked memories they learned from many ancient books and stories retold by elders in their clan.
This was because it was a battle of a magnificent scale.
The scale of the Battle of the Heavens was terrifying and affected all nine heavens of the Tianyuan World.
And in a sense, the Battle of the Heavens wasn’t a one-on-one battle, and instead had an unignorable impact on any region.
Once the mighty ancestral qi born in Guyuan Heaven flows into a Heaven’s region, it would increase the grade of the universe Genesis Qi in that region and make it purer and more powerful than before. The ultimate effect of this was that the cultivation efficiency in that region would soar, and beings in that region could achieve twice the result with half the effort. Moreover, the influence would last a period of time. How many heaven prides would benefit from the improved Genesis Qi during this period?
Even veteran Nascent Source experts could use that chance to break through into the coveted Law Domain, and thereby become top-level existences in all heavens.
Therefore, regardless what level an expert was, it would be impossible for them to ignore the Battle of the Heavens.
Of course, the minimum cultivation level one must have reached to partic.i.p.ate in a battle of that level was the Heavenly Sun stage, and anyone below the Heavenly Sun stage could only watch the battle anxiously and quietly wait for the final result.
But that didn’t stop the news of the Battle of the Heavens spreading to every corner of Hunyuan Heaven like a virus.
Even the previous nine regions tournament paled in comparison to such a grand battle.
It was said that some Heavenly Sun experts and Nascent Source experts had recently received numerous training resources to improve their strength as much as possible. Moreover, the nine regions released a recruitment notice and offered very favourable benefits in hope of attracting top Heavenly Sun and Nascent Source experts.
Although the nine regions were the leaders of Hunyuan Heaven, the vast Hunyuan Heaven naturally concealed many hidden dragons, and some of the hidden experts weren’t much weaker than the veterans on the Heavenly Sun List and Nascent Source List.
The nine regions wouldn’t care much about those people in the past, but now, because of the Battle of the Heavens’ unique requirements, there was a great need for such top Heavenly Sun and Nascent Source experts, and each of the nine regions wanted to recruit them.
The nine regions’ actions unsurprisingly set off huge movements in the Hunyuan Heaven. Many unaffiliated cultivators were indeed tempted by the favourable benefits the nine regions offered, and so, during this period, dark horses emerged one after another and unfamiliar names burst forth. Those people displayed their remarkable strength, and the Heavenly Sun List and Nascent Source List began to change.
It was only then that many people realized the waters of their Hunyuan Heaven were so deep and concealed many great players….
But not only the nine regions hoped to recruit talents, even the other top forces were eager to act, because, as members of Hunyuan Heaven, they were also qualified to partic.i.p.ate in the Battle of the Heavens. Their goal in the battle perhaps wasn’t to fight for the nine main channels of ancestral qi; after all, there were still many other ancestral qi channels in Guyuan Heaven. If they could occupy them and direct the ancestral qi contained in them towards their headquarters, it could similarly bring great benefits to their forces.
Therefore, they couldn’t help but take action. As a result, the Hunyuan Heaven became even more tumultuous.
However, the nine regions were undoubtedly more advantageous among the many recruiting forces. Among the nine regions, the Wanzu Region, Wushen Region and Zixiao Region were unsurprisingly the most popular. The matter that was unexpected was that the Tianyuan Region’s popularity wasn’t any lower than the three top forces.
This was unimaginable in the past. After all, everyone knew the Tianyuan Region was the weakest. However Zhuan Zhu’s powerful return to the Tianyuan Region had overturned the Tianyuan Region’s deterioration. Evidently, the shock of having two Saint experts in the same region was unbelievably strong.
Therefore, countless hidden dark horses flocked to the Tianyuan Region during the recruitment period.
As the Tianyuan Region’s recruitment progressed, it had been four months since Zhou Yuan went into closed-door cultivation.
The Sky Illuminating Eye. In the depths of the Illuminating Sea.
The light lotus floated in the sea, a faint flame rose, and Zhou Yuan sat inside the lotus.
Even after four months of adjustment, his body was still in a constant melting state, and his powerful body, which he was extremely proud of, was as fragile as a candle there.
Zhou Yuan’s face was bloodied and his bones were exposed like a skeleton.
His flesh and blood made slight crackling sounds as his flesh melted.
But Zhou Yuan didn’t budge, as though he felt no pain. It wasn’t that the pain had weakened over time, but the four months of melting pain had left Zhou Yuan in a numbed state.
However, even though Zhou Yuan had suffered inhumane torture in the past four months, he had gained tremendous benefits. Even his bodily strength had increased by more than one level, let alone in other areas.
The Great Flame Devil’s level also improved.
The golden blood in his heart had quietly reached more than 1,800 drops, and as his heart beat, the astonis.h.i.+ng force that permeated his bones and limbs were enough to move mountains and split the sea.
The faint flames rising in the light lotus had begun to fade after four months.
However, the Genesis Qi breakthrough that Zhou Yuan antic.i.p.ated the most hadn’t appeared. Obviously, a breakthrough in his Genesis Qi was more difficult to achieve than that of ordinary people.
Zhou Yuan’s closed eyes opened slightly, and his pupils on his b.l.o.o.d.y face looked particularly striking. As he stared at the extremely faint flames in the light lotus, his eyes flickered, and a moment later, his eyes blazed with determination and fierceness.
He opened his mouth abruptly and inhaled deeply.
Zhou Yuan swallowed the faint flames remaining in the light lotus!
Although the flames were extremely tiny, it ultimately originated from the Saint fire, and if it were placed in an ocean, the entire ocean area would bubble.
But Zhou Yuan dared to swallow it in one mouthful. His action was crazy!
After swallowing the wisps of flame, Zhou Yuan’s flesh and blood was instantly burned cleanly, and even his bones began to melt. That inhuman pain was enough to make anyone crazy, but Zhou Yuan remained motionless. He activated the Ancestral Dragon Scripture and directly forced the flames into his Divine Dwellings.
The terrifying heat disappeared.
The light lotus gradually grew cold.
But Zhou Yuan’s skeleton-like body stilled, and his aura of life seemed to be weakening at an alarming speed.
His Spirit at the center of his eyebrows also dimmed and was on the verge of extinguis.h.i.+ng.
From a distance, there seemed to be a dried-up corpse sitting cross-legged in the light lotus, with his life force annihilated.
That state lasted for a long while.
At a certain moment, Zhou Yuan’s skeleton-like body suddenly trembled. The little life aura remaining in the light lotus whizzed, his flesh and blood rapidly began to recover, and his Spirit gradually grew brighter.
Zhou Yuan folded one hand in a seal.
Rays of Genesis Qi gathered behind him and finally transformed into a gla.s.s heavenly sun.
But before it ended, the corners of his mouth curved upwards.
After the first gla.s.s sun formed, the light erupted again, and another more magnificent gla.s.s sun slowly emerged.
He had finally stepped into the intermediate Heavenly Sun stage!
