Time Manipulating System - Chapter 2
Chapter 2 – Sword Intent!
To rapidly increase one’s cultivation base, he had to use precious medicinal pills, heavenly resources, earth treasures, and spirit stones.
However, Gu Yang was only an outer court disciple. He didn’t have any of these resources.
“This is extremely uncomfortable. It’s useless to meditate in the room.”
Gu Yang walked out of the dormitory and began to stroll around. Soon, he heard an extremely important piece of news: the inner court selection competition was commencing soon!
Half a month later, all outer court disciples that had reached the 10th stage of Body Refinement Realm were allowed to participate!
The reward for the inner court selection was ten low-grade spirit stones!
Hearing this news, Gu Yang was instantly moved. Ten low-grade spirit stones … This reward was truly generous. Although spirit stones were extremely precious to outer court disciples at the Body Refinement Realm, they were temporarily not useful.
This was because he was in the Body Refinement Realm and was cultivating his qi and blood to increase his strength. Only by breaking through to the Qi Condensation Realm would he be able to absorb the rich spiritual energy contained within the spirit stones.
All in all, these ten low-grade spirit stones were quite attractive to him!
Not to mention that he’d use it very assiduously, considering how enormous the sum was.
“The standard for participating in the competition is the 10th stage of the Body Refinement Realm. My cultivation has already reached the standard. As long as I learn a few more martial skills and change the training time … perhaps no one will be a match for me in this inner court competition!”
Thinking of this, Gu Yang’s eyes flashed with light. He was going to get these ten low-grade spirit stones! Of course, the current goal was to learn martial skills and then collect resources to see if he could break through to the Qi Condensation Realm.
Thinking of this, Gu Yang chose to go to the Martial Pavilion and choose a few martial skills.
According to the rules of the Flowing Cloud Sect, if an outer court disciple reached the 7th level of Body Refining Realm or above, they would be able to receive three high-grade rank martial skills for free.
Soon, Gu Yang arrived at the Martial Pavilion and reported to the Elders.
“Throw me a punch, let me see if your cultivation has attained the 7th level of Body Refinement Realm.” The Pavilion Guard Elder calmly said.
The Body Refinement Realm was very special. It was impossible to tell, but it still required strength testing.
Gu Yang didn’t hesitate. He punched out and the air exploded.
However, although Gu Yang’s punch was very powerful, the pavilion’s guard elder raised his hand slightly and blocked it. His body did not even tremble.
“Good kid. You came here to receive a martial skill after reaching the peak of the tenth level of body refinement. You are an ascetic.” Sensing Gu Yang’s power, the elder’s eyes flashed with a bright light as he praised.
“Elder, you flatter me.” Gu Yang said, neither servile nor overbearing.
“Let’s go in. You can choose three high-grade Mortal martial skills from the second floor.” The pavilion elder stroked his beard and laughed.
Gu Yang didn’t waste any time either. He directly entered the Martial Pavilion.
The space inside the Martial Pavilion was very large. There were many martial skills among them. However, the first level’s martial skills were low-grade and mid-grade rank.
Although Gu Yang felt that if he flipped through these low-grade and mid-grade rank martial skills and modified his training time, he would be able to enrich his knowledge on the martial dao, but he didn’t dare.
After all, there were seals placed on the martial arts. If one casually flipped through them, the consequences would be very serious.
Soon, Gu Yang arrived on the second floor. After careful selection, he chose three martial skills that suited him.
One was a high-grade sword technique, the Ardent Wind Sword.
The second one was a high-grade movement technique that was good at accelerating at short and medium distances. The choice of this movement technique was naturally a steady choice. In a life-saving case, there was still a way to survive in the face of powerful enemies.
The last one was a high-grade fist technique, the Vajra Fist.
The choice of a fist technique was a deliberate decision. Sword techniques would be his primary method, while fist techniques were auxiliary. If the sword were to accidentally break or fall out of his hand during the battle and he is left out with a fist, he would have at least a bit of combat strength. He would not lose ninety percent of his combat strength.
When Gu Yang finished choosing the cultivation technique, the elder didn’t say anything and directly registered it for him.
“I’m sure you know the rules of the sect. You can’t pass it on to others. You have to return it within a month.” The elder said solemnly.
“Disciple knows.” Gu Yang nodded and left.
After returning to his room, Gu Yang began to flip through three martial skills. After he memorized the three martial skills in his mind, he manipulated the time of his cultivation one by one.
After modifying the Vajra Fist for ten years, the Vajra Fist was directly perfected.
After modifying the Shadow Steps for ten years, he directly completed it.
After modifying the Fierce Wind Sword for ten years, insights into the Dao of the Sword surged into his heart, and he immediately perfected it.
Gu Yang had even entered a strange state. A moment later, Gu Yang’s body trembled and he woke up. Instinctively, he pulled out his sword. Then, a sharp aura burst forth from the sword.
His sword was still a distance away from the wooden wall, but it forcefully left a deep sword mark on it.
“This is the embryonic form of Sword Intent …?”
Gu Yang was a little surprised. He hadn’t expected that he had comprehended the embryonic form of Sword Intent.
Sword Intent was a unique concept. Those who could comprehend it were all true monsters.
Sword cultivators who had comprehended the Sword Intent could defeat those who haven’t (sword cultivators) as easy as drinking water. Their combat strength would skyrocket.
As for the embryonic form of Sword Intent, although it was not a true Sword Intent, it also possessed a portion of its might, allowing the swordsman’s strength to increase greatly.
Gu Yang had never thought that he would have comprehended the embryonic form of Sword Intent just like that.
“Oh right, I wonder if I can modify the cultivation time of the embryonic form of Sword Intent.”
At this moment, Gu Yang’s heart skipped a beat. He chose to modify the embryonic form of his Sword Intent ten years in the future.
Instantly, a large amount of comprehension of the Sword Dao surged into Gu Yang’s heart.
After that, the sharp aura around Gu Yang’s body increased by several folds, as if it could sever everything.
“This is Sword Intent, true Sword Intent …” Gu Yang was astonished.
He never thought that he would be able to comprehend the Sword Intent that countless swordsmen dreamed of so easily. One had to know that there was not a single swordsman who could comprehend Sword Intent.
At the very least, if he revealed that he’d comprehended the Sword Intent, then he would be able to cause a group of people to be shocked.
Of course, the killing intent of the opposing sects would not be lacking.
“Hu. Since I have comprehended Sword Insight, then it’s time to go down the mountain to earn cultivation resources.”
“If I break through to Qi Condensation as soon as possible, my strength will increase greatly.”
Thinking of this, Gu Yang didn’t hesitate. He prepared some dry food and left the mountain.
