Luo Yunyang was sitting in a lotus position amidst the roiling lightning fires. Right now, he wasn't the least bit bothered by what was going on around him.Ηe was following the cultivation techniques that had entered his head and incorporating the Fundamental Planetary Source into his body.
In the vast cosmos, one truly entered the threshold of an export only by reaching the Star-Grade. Only martialists who reached the Star-Grade were regarded with respect.
Progressing from the Planet-Grade to the Star-Grade was extremely difficult, as there was not a mere gulf between these two realms, but a qualitative leap.
This was indeed a qualitative leap. Hence, it was an extremely huge leap.
Even if one's cultivation base was at the Planet-Grade, one would still have to absorb power from the sky and earth before using any powers. However, the moment the Star-Grade was reached, whatever power was unleashed was their own.
This meant that a Star-Grade martialist could still survive, even if they were at a dark part of the universe where no stars were shining. The martialist could still cultivate without any restrictions.
These benefits couldn't be made clear orally right away.
Ever since he had received the Jade Ridge Star Lord's imparted knowledge, Luo Yunyang had learned about breaking through to the Star-Grade and started to conduct relative research.
Reaching the Star-Grade Realm required a cultivation base, as well as integrating powerful treasures. This way, the source star created would be even more powerful.
According to the Jade Ridge Star Lord's memories, the best material was naturally the origin source power of certain powerful Sky Divine Beasts.
For example, extracting the origin source power of mature True Dragons and Divine Phoenixes and a.s.similating it within one's planet star core would allow a Planet-Grade martialist to experience a ma.s.sive change.
However, mature True Dragons, Divine Phoenixes and other divine beasts were really powerful. Given Luo Yunyang's current cultivation base, this was impossible. Even the Jade Ridge Star Lord hadn't considered this.
Another alternative were some precious treasures, such as ancient metals, everlasting flames, and precious divine waters that had existed for eternity…
There were all sorts of treasured items. As Luo Yunyang slowly went down the list, he discovered various ordinary treasures that could be refined into a Star Entering Pill by a refining master.
However, the Star Entering Pill was basic and extremely weak. Creating a galaxy within the body was very difficult, as it required a star as a base. If the foundation of the Star-Grade Realm wasn't firm and solid enough, then breaking through to the NebulGrade would be basically impossible.
In the boundless universe, the Star-Grade Realm could basically be divided into nine levels and three ranks.
Levels one, two and three, which const.i.tuted the first rank, would illuminate 90,000 miles. Basically half of the people who achieved this could become NebulGrade ent.i.ties.
Levels four, five and six, which const.i.tuted the second rank, would create a Star-Grade Realm that could illuminate 30,000 miles.
Although this was a big difference compared to the first rank, it wasn't impossible to reach the NebulGrade this way.
Unfortunately, the second rank of the Star-Grade only had a 10 percent chance of reaching the NebulGrade.
Furthermore, ent.i.ties that reached the NebulGrade by force could not progress any further or turn their power into a galaxy.
Levels seven, eight and nine, which const.i.tuted the third rank, were also considered Star-Grade martialists. However, their possibility of reaching the NebulGrade was practically zero.
Furthermore, the power that these Star-Grade ent.i.ties possessed was a very long way from levels one, two and three.
Even the Jade Ridge Star Lord had never heard of using a Fundamental Planetary Source to ascend to the Star-Grade Realm, so how could Luo Yunyang have known?
According to the Jade Ridge Star Lord, being able to use Dragon souls, Phoenix blood and other divine beast essences to ascend to the Star-Grade was already outstanding enough. Anything else was unheard of.
Luo Yunyang believed that using this cultivation technique and a.s.similating the Fundamental Planetary Source into his body step by step would be extremely painful, even though the fire-system planet within his body had already reached level nine, which meant everything must have gone smoothly.
However, the power contained within the Fundamental Planetary Source was too majestic. As the Fundamental Planetary Source was a.s.similated by his body, Luo Yunyang felt as though he had swallowed a ma.s.sive sun.
In the process of swallowing this boundless sun, Luo Yunyang felt like his own soul was crumbling. Meanwhile, the sky lightning and earthly fires kept entering his body and flowing into the fire-system planet within it.
Actually, they were heading straight to the planet, which was evolving into a star!
"Persevere! The longer you endure this, the more effective the absorption of the Fundamental Planetary Source will be!" a serene voice said next to Luo Yunyang's ear.
Absorbing the whole Fundamental Planetary Source was a ma.s.sive opportunity for most people. However, taking advantage of this opportunity also depended on how compatible a person was with the Fundamental Planetary Source.
The higher their compatibility, the greater their success.
Luo Yunyang didn't utter a word when he heard this voice. Instead, he quickly adjusted his Mind Attribute.
The only thing on his mind right now was to endure. He had entered the Blood Battle helplessly and thoroughly reached the realization that the most important thing in the world was power.
One day, two days, three days…
In the huge battleship suspended in the air, Elder Qieke was watching the Chongyuan Star, which was engulfed in sky lighting and earthly fires, with a look of envy. Perhaps he was actually watching Luo Yunyang, who was on the Chongyuan Star.
"It's been three months already!" Elder Qieke exclaimed. Back when he had ascended to the Star-Grade, the longest he had cultivated for had been two months. This person had already cultivated for three whole months.
Although a difference of one month didn't seem like much, each additional day of cultivation made a great difference.
Take Elder Qieke, for example. If he could have cultivated for an additional month when he had been ascending to the Star-Grade, he wouldn't have reached his current state.
Could Luo Yunyang really reach one of the divine realms of the fabled seven divine star realms?
Elder Qieke didn't dwell much on this thought, as the superior ent.i.ties were watching.
If Elder Qieke did something that dissatisfied them, then things wouldn't look very good for him.
The Path Master and the others weren't leaving yet, which meant that they were waiting for…
Over 10 s.p.a.cecrafts were gathered at an obscure corner of the Blue Rain Empire when an argument started over everyone's communication devices.
Yunxi, who was wearing purple battle armor, seemed valiant and formidable. She actually looked like a war G.o.ddess!
"Yunxi, we have to hurry over to the Tianluo Empire. Only by going there will we have any hope of surviving!" said an old man who had long cuts and scars on his face with a furious expression.
Black blood was still dripping from his scars. Although it didn't seem like his life was threatened, the old man wasn't at ease either.
"You guys go first!" Yunxi said in a manner that was both gentle and firm.
A flicker of anger flashed across the old man's eyes as he said, "Yunxi, this is not a request. I have given you an order. Your father has already pa.s.sed away, yet before he died, he pa.s.sed down his position as head of the Yun Family to me!"
The old man's tone was practically tyrannical by now. "Don't tell me that you want to defy my order?"
"Of course I do not wish to defy your order, Ninth Uncle. However, I really have something to do. I've made a promise!" Although Yunxi's tone was calm, it also contained an unyielding spirit.
Yunxi simply didn't know how to express how much she cherished Luo Yunyang. Sometimes, she thought that if anything disastrous happened to him, she would chase after him without hesitation. She had made a solemn vow to protect his family. How could she just break her promise? How could she possibly do that?
Although they were separated by the screen, the old man could still sense that Yunxi would not change her mind. Thus, he said gloomily. "Yunxi, I know very well what you want to do, but that person is already dead. There is no point going there."
Then, he said in an austere manner, "I hope that you don't blame yourself!"
"He is the benefactor of the Yun Family. Without him, our family wouldn't have escaped," said Yunxi, her att.i.tude immediately becoming more resolute. "Plus, I promised him that as long as I live, his family won't die. The Tianluo Empire lays ahead, Uncle. This is where we will part ways. If you stop me, my men and this battleship will self-destruct before your very eyes!"
Yunxi's resolve was extremely staunch. She clearly wanted to show everyone that she paid no heed to her Ninth Uncle's decision.
"Even if I died, it wouldn't be much of a concern. However, if my battleship is destroyed, Lan Tianjue's men will definitely notice."
The fierce-looking old man's expression darkened. However, deep down he knew Yunxi very well. This wasn't just a verbal threat. She would definitely do what she claimed.
As he watched Yunxi turn around and walk away, the old man said, "Since you are obstinately clinging to your own course, from this day on, you will no longer be a member of the Yun Family. As the Yun Family head, I expel you from the family."
Yunxi said nothing. The battleship she was on quickly made a turn and sped through s.p.a.ce in a different direction.
The battleship was extremely quick, yet a day after Yunxi left, 100 ma.s.sive battleships were already charging after them.
All sorts of data and information from the machinery's investigation were rapidly being reported to the top. The final report landed in the hands of a young man with a cold expression.
The young man read the report and smiled grimly like a leopard about to spring on its prey.
"They're splitting up? Ha ha ha! They should probably be going to… What's that place called? I wonder if the one who left was Yunxi." A frosty glint flickered across the man's eyes as he mumbled to himself. "How long… How long has it been since I was last there? Ha ha ha! This time, I shall have my revenge!"
As he said this, the man made a clawing motion with his hand and a metallic, clashing sound rang out.
