Fantasy: I! Accept disciples and become stronger! - Chapter 44
Chapter 44. Divine Refining Pagoda! Stone stele ranking!
He was dressed in white, and he held a jade-like sword in his hand. He was like a peerless sword immortal.
This person was Xuan Yi.
“It’s Elder Xuan!”
As soon as his image appeared, the four of them were stunned.
They were extremely familiar with this person. Wasn’t he the Heavenly Elder of their Profound Sword Sect, Elder Xuan, Gui Yiyi’s master, Xuan Yi?
How was that possible!
The first reaction of the other three Profound Sword Sect disciples was disbelief!
Elder Xuan and the others knew each other, but how could Elder Xuan’s strength be so great?
Defeating Grandmaster Fan of the Roaming Dragon Pavilion? Killing Endless Gate’s Grand Elder Yang?
This was something that even the sect master could not do. Elder Xuan……
It wasn’t that the three of them didn’t believe it. This matter was simply too outrageous.
If that person had been defeated and killed, it would be fine if he were an ordinary Nascent Soul expert, but who were those two? One was the Grand Elder of The Endless Gate, while the other was someone of the Heavenly Wind Kingdom’s ten great sects. The Grand Elder of the Roaming Dragon Pavilion was a powerful Nascent Soul expert, he was a figure standing at the top of the Heavenly Wind Kingdom’s pyramid…
Next, Gui Yiyi did not stop at the Sword Intent Peak. Instead, she quickly left after asking about Xuan Yi’s whereabouts.
Although Sword Intent Peak was extremely attractive to sword cultivators, its so-called attraction was to sword cultivators who did not comprehend the embryonic form of sword intent. To sword cultivators who had already comprehended the embryonic form of sword intent, Gui Yiyi’s attraction was not that great at this moment.
In comparison, the Divine Refining Pagoda was even more attractive to Gui Yiyi at this moment. Not to mention that her master was also there. Gui Yiyi wanted to meet her master earlier.
No matter how much of a genius Gui Yiyi was, she was still a young girl who had never gone alone into the world. After she entered the Purple Moon Secret Realm, she was constantly on edge. Although there were a few senior brothers by her side, they did not give her any sense of security.
Only her Master.
Only staying by her master’s side would make her feel the most at ease.
“Junior Sister Gui, this Purple Moon Secret Realm is extremely dangerous. Why don’t you wait here for us for two days before we head to the Divine Refining Pagoda together?” The strongest senior brother of the Profound Sword Sect said worriedly.
“No, senior brothers. I’ve already comprehended the embryonic form of sword intent. This Sword Intent Peak is no longer very useful to me. Although this Purple Moon Secret Realm is dangerous, as long as I’m careful, I should be fine.”
“Then Junior Sister, be careful.”
Gui Yiyi left and went on the journey of searching for a master by herself.
…… ……… ……
The Divine Refining Pagoda
A tower that seemed to pierce through the sky was discovered more than two thousand years ago.
Each time the Purple Moon Secret Realm opened, it would appear.
Furthermore, the location of the Divine Refining Pagoda was not fixed, but rather random.
Every time the Purple Moon Secret Realm was opened, the Divine Refining Pagoda would appear at a random spot in the secret realm.
The Divine Refining Pagoda.
Containing a total of 99 levels
As long as he could ascend the first level, he would be rewarded accordingly.
On the other hand, the higher the number of floors ascended, the greater the rewards. According to rumors, if one were to ascend to the top, one would be able to obtain the inheritance of a mighty figure who had stepped into the King Realm and his life-long treasures.
Some people believed this, while others didn’t.
Whether they believed it or not, even if it was true, who could ascend the 99th floor?
In the thousands of years since Purple Moon Secret Realm first, no one had been able to reach the top.
At present, someone was only able to ascend to the 73rd floor.
What Divine Refining Pagoda took into account was combat strength!
A person’s realm was unrelated.
The Divine Refining Pagoda would arrange opposition according to the level of the person who was ascending the pagoda.
Therefore, no matter how high one’s cultivation level was, they didn’t have any advantage in the Divine Refining Pagoda. High cultivation levels meant that the opponents you encountered in the pagoda would be stronger.
The first thirty levels of the Divine Refining Pagoda wasn’t particularly difficult. Anyone with a bit of genius and some talent would be able to reach the thirtieth level.
The hard part was after the 30th level.
From the 31st level, the difficulty of each level would increase exponentially.
For example, before the 30th level, the opponents you encountered might all be at the same level.
However, after the thirty-first level, your opponent would no longer be at the same level as you. If you were not invincible at the same level or could not battle across realms then the thirty-first level would be your final point. It would be wishful thinking to ascend another level.
Of course, the more difficult it was, the more generous the rewards would be. From the 31st floor, every time a person ascended the tower, the rewards they would receive would be even more generous.
When the five of them arrived at the pagoda, there was already a sea of people around it.
It was even more exaggerated than under the Sword Intent Peak.
After all, Sword Intent Peak was extremely attractive to sword cultivators, and it was not as attractive to other martial cultivators.
The Divine Refining Pagoda was different.
It was extremely attractive to all martial artists who entered the Purple Moon Secret Realm. Whether you were a sword cultivator, a Spear cultivator, or a zither cultivator.
“Master, what is the stone tablet next to the Divine Refining Pagoda? A treasure?”
Lin Zhiyin pointed at a huge stone tablet next to the Divine Refining Pagoda and asked.
On this plain, apart from a huge tower, there was also a similarly huge stone stele beside it.
The stone tablet was filled with names.
However, Lin Zhiyin did not know any of these names. She had never even heard of them before.
In reality, not to mention Lin Zhiyin, Xuan Yi, and even the majority of the people under the Divine Refining Pagoda were completely unfamiliar with the densely packed names on the stone stele.
However, although they didn’t recognize any of the stone steles, there were quite a few people who knew the origins of the stone stele.
“This stele is with the Divine Refining Pagoda.”
The person who spoke was not Xuan Yi. Instead, he was a young man in brocade robes not far from Xuan Yi and the others. He had an extraordinary bearing, and a precious sword was pinned at his waist. There was a trace of admiration in his gaze towards Lin Zhiyin.
Seeing Lin Zhiyin Zixuan and the others’ gazes, he revealed a smile that he thought was handsome and continued to explain to them:
“This Divine Refining Pagoda is extremely mysterious. Whenever the Divine Refining Pagoda comes into being, the stone stele will follow closely behind it. The names on the stone stele are the ones left behind by many people who ascended the pagoda during its countless years.”
“The greater the number of floors ascended, the higher the ranking on the stone stele.”
When Zixuan heard this, she was shocked. She looked at the densely packed names and exclaimed, “How many people are there on such a large stone tablet ……”
The young man replied.
“A hundred thousand. The existence of this Divine Refining Pagoda is probably not just tens of thousands of years old, but probably millions of years old.”
“I wonder how many cultivators have ascended the Divine Refining Pagoda.”
“Don’t look at the hundred thousand spots, those aren’t something we can covet.”
