An hour later, Luo Yunyang had completely familiarized himself with the changes in his mind power and gently recalled his throwing knives, Chasing Sun and Accompanying Moon.
These two throwing knives had made a big impact back in Zulong's Tomb. If he had encountered old Mu Xinghe now, he had absolute confidence that he could kill him with one strike.
After restoring his attributes back to their original state, Luo Yunyang took out the Heaven-Battling Ape-Dragon Chart. Besides the nine movements of the Ape-Dragon Blueprint, there was also a set of higher-level techniques on the chart.
However, Luo Yunyang wasn't ready to cultivate these techniques yet.
He wanted to a.s.similate Chi Hen's cultivation of the Ape-Dragon Blueprint into his own body first and make sure that his foundation was firm.
After studying the first nine diagrams of the Heaven-Battling Ape-Dragon Chart, Luo Yunyang started to re-cultivate the Ape-Dragon Blueprint according to Chi Hen's experiences, as well as his newfound comprehension of the blueprint.
Although the Earth-Splitting Devil Ape was a move that he had practised countless times, when he unleashed it once again, he had a very different experience.
Even though Luo Yunyang had already trained using all his muscles in the past, when he unleashed this move now, he felt like every single muscle in his body had come alive.
He even felt muscle fibers that hadn't changed much in a long time start to move about vigorously once again.
He used the Earth-Splitting Devil Ape Move, the Tail-Swaying Storm Dragon Move, the Howling-Ape Roaring-Dragon Technique...
Luo Yunyang practised each move slowly and seriously.
When he finished cultivating the full set once, his entire body felt incomparably relaxed and comfortable.
If he had felt like a piece of steel after his previous cultivation, then after this new round of cultivation, he felt like a piece of steel that had been forged 10, or perhaps 100, times.
Luo Yunyang didn't immediately cultivate the Moon-Swallowing Devil Ape Move and the Golden Sun-Devouring Dragon Move. As soon as he had acquired Chi Hen's cultivation experience, he had realized that his cultivation of these two techniques had been a fluke.
Based on Chi Hen's records, in order to cultivate these two techniques, one needed to have reached the pinnacle of cultivation of the previous moves, as well as possess an excellent comprehension of them.
Luo Yunyang hadn't reached Chi Hen's so-called pinnacle. The reason he had been able to cultivate the last two diagrams of the Ape-Dragon Blueprint had been his attribute regulator.
However, when Chi Hen had cultivated the Moon-Swallowing Devil Ape Move, a fragrant osmanthus tree had appeared on his visualization of the moon.
The pureness of the moon's essence that was absorbed depended on how distinct one's visualization of the moon was. An ancestor of Chi Hen's had even had the moon palace appear on the visualization of the moon in his heart.
Luo Yunyang took a deep breath before he started practising the Moon-Swallowing Devil Ape Move based on Chi Hen's experiences, The moment he unleashed the Moon-Swallowing Devil Ape Move, a bright moon appeared in his thoughts.
The moon that Luo Yunyang visualized was not much different from the one he had when he had first started cultivating the Moon-Swallowing Devil Ape. However, there was a fragrant osmanthus tree on the moon in Luo Yunyang's thoughts this time.
Luo Yunyang could see a faintly discernible roof beneath this divine tree.
The roof wasn't very big, but it was much more distinct than the fragrant osmanthus tree in Chi Hen's memories. Luo Yunyang felt a pressing need to see what exactly was under this roof.
When he urged his mind to look at the bright moon, the tiny roof slowly started to transform and the moon palace gradually became visible on that bright round disk.
However, there still seemed to be something under the doors of the divine palace. Luo Yunyang wanted to look closer, but even though he tried to use his mind abilities, he still found it difficult to discern what exactly was beneath the palace.
My Mind Attribute is not high enough. Increase!
Luo Yunyang quickly used his attribute regulator to raise his Mind Attribute to 200 points.
The already very clear round disk suddenly became three-dimensional. Luo Yunyang now felt as though he was actually on the moon.
Beneath that colossal moon palace was a plump rabbit hopping around at a high speed. When Luo Yunyang's gaze fell on the rabbit, he could even sense the rabbit looking at him.
Luo Yunyang felt his entire body freeze up.
Although this only lasted for a moment, it felt like an eternity to Luo Yunyang, who didn't know how to describe what had happened.
When he came back to his senses, he felt a delicate flow of something like white jade descend from the sky. The instant this frigid cold entered his body, Luo Yunyang felt as if he had taken the ninth heaven's jade fluid. Every single pore on his body felt immensely comfortable.
As he pondered over this quietly, he used his internal vision to observe the source core within his body. He realized that the silver source core that represented the moon's energy had not become any bigger. Instead, it had actually grown smaller and even more condensed.
Luo Yunyang exhaled and used the Moon-Swallowing Devil Ape Move once again. This time, he didn't increase his Mind Attribute. However, after his previous breakthrough, the jade rabbit appeared in his visualization again.
Pure energy flowed into his source core, making it even more resplendent.
Luo Yunyang didn't stop. He started cultivating the Golden Sun-Devouring Dragon with glowing eyes right away. Chi Hen's cultivation experiences made him the best teacher Luo Yunyang had ever had.
Three hours later, Luo Yunyang was delighted to use his internal vision. The source core in his body, which was like a golden blaze, was pulsing continuously.
Luo Yunyang opened his attribute regulator, only to discover that the figures had changed again.
Power: 87 (Fire: 15, Ice: 14, Wood: 5)
Const.i.tution: 78 (Golden Body: 18)
Luo Yunyang wouldn't normally be that pleasantly surprised by a 10-point increase to his Power, yet he couldn't help but feel overjoyed when he saw that his Fire and Ice Attributes had gained 5 points each.
As he energetically prepared to start cultivating the absorption technique of the Golden Sun-Devouring Dragon according to Chi Hen's experiences, his stomach suddenly rumbled.
He was hungry. Luo Yunyang reached out with his hand and made a grabbing motion in the direction that his energy bars were stored. A grade-eight energy bar instantly flew into his hand. Luo Yunyang devoured the bar ravenously.
In the past, he would have gone over to the Clean Elegant Food House to eat his fill, but after being stimulated, he now needed to cultivate these techniques even more ferociously. Energy bars would have to do for now.
