Chapter 672: Thunder Source Law, The Will Of Thunder
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Defense was the best choice of action if one wanted to survive the Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation!
This was stated in a book found in the Donghua Ancient Sect's Historical Records Chamber. It described the thunder generated by the Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation as overwhelmingly strong.
Even Universe-Grade Celestial Thearches would find their spirit consciousness sway and feel able to only unleash up to half of their power when facing that vast and mighty Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation Thunder.
Only 30% of their power was used for offense.
Luo Yunyang possessed a Heavenly Venerate spirit consciousness and was able to remain calm in the face of this unyielding experience.
However, that was all he could do. He still involuntarily revered the boundless might of heaven and earth.
The vast heaven had no beginning and no end!
However, although he revered the mighty Tribulation Thunder, he still had to go up against it. Hence, he immediately spurred his mind power when the Tribulation Thunder approached.
Given the growth of his cultivation base, Luo Yunyang's use of mind power had been minimal, especially so ever since he had become a Heavenly Venerate in his 10 Reincarnation Cycles, as he had utilized more techniques that combined both mind and power.
Those techniques made the two attributes complement each other, and the overall effectiveness could be increased multiple times.
However, after discovering that he had endured the 49th Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation, Luo Yunyang was prepared to use his own power in turn.
His majestic mind power transformed into a silver canopy that dazzled for miles in the void.
Inside the silver canopy were roaring divine beasts, an alternating sun and moon, as well as the rise and fall of the stars, which seemed to contain an infinite mystery.
When Luo Yunyang had become a Heavenly Venerate in the Tianyunshen Dynasty, the mind power that had come about had not been able to compare to the present.
At the time, Luo Yunyang's mind power had been able to execute a barrier technique he had named Hidden Sky Canopy, which was 10,000 feet wide.
Now, it was only 3,000 feet wide.
The moment the first black thunder fell on the canopy, the silvery light barrier was nearly shattered along with the black thunder.
However, as the black thunder shattered, Luo Yunyang felt countless small fragments of origin source laws enter his mind just like a grain of fine sand or water droplets.
Luo Yunyang felt his mind power improve a lot when the small fragments of origin source laws entered his body.
The Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation actually contained fragments of Origin Source Law that was the same as his cultivation path. Not only could the fragments improve the cultivation, but the cultivator could also make use of the fragments of Origin Source Law to supplement the flaw in his cultivation.
While there were plenty of benefits, this was also equally dangerous.
Although it seemed like Luo Yunyang had handled the previous thunder with ease, only he knew how dangerous it had been.
Just as Luo Yunyang was enjoying this supplementing effect, a trail of lightning appeared in the void.
The lightning penetrated his mind power directly, piercing sharply his spirit consciousness. The moment the lightning penetrated his mind, Luo Yunyang felt like the lightning was a whip heavily lashing on his spirit consciousness.
Luo Yunyang's spirit consciousness was at the Heavenly Venerate Level. Hence, despite the strong lashing, Luo Yunyang just twitched a little.
When the lightning dissipated, Luo Yunyang felt a sudden fullness in his mind power.
Although the Historical Records Chamber had plenty of books that described the Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation, Luo Yunyang finally had a clearer understanding of the process after going through it himself.
Thunder Source Law, The Will Of Lightning!
The combination of these two was insanely powerful, so anyone who couldn't withstand it would turn into ashes. Any individual who was able to endure the punishment would gain naturally large and bountiful benefits.
During this entire process, Luo Yunyang began to understand why the Heavenly Venerates in the Mysterious Sky Great Cosmos could be cla.s.sified into nine different folds.
The Ninefold Heavenly Venerate might have a huge relationship with the Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation of the Mysterious Sky Great Cosmos.
It was precisely because of the Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation that the Heavenly Venerates could grow step by step. Of course, even strong and powerful Heaven Venerates would face the danger of dying by the Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation Thunder if they failed to withstand it.
Martialists who had been tempered by the Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation were stronger and better than ordinary martialists.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Just as Luo Yunyang was lost deep in his thoughts, another black thunder landed on him. This time, the Supreme Hidden Sky Canopy that had recovered and stretched to 2,000 miles wide was shattered again by the black thunder.
The same black lightning entered Luo Yunyang's mind, lashing heavily again at his spirit consciousness.
However, after learning from his previous encounter, Luo Yunyang responded calmly. According to his estimations, the Supreme Hidden Sky Canopy would only be able to last for another five Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation Thunders if he didn't use his attribute regulator.
Third thunder, fourth thunder, fifth thunder…
In the blink of an eye, Luo Yunyang had endured 20 Martial Path Thunders!
The black thunder became increasingly horrifying. Although the Will Of Lightning that lashed at Luo Yunyang's mind wasn't a big threat to his Heavenly Venerate consciousness, it still got increasingly painful as well.
Gu Mingping and Yin Feihuan, who had already retreated thousands of miles away, were staring blankly at the 3,000-feet-wide Supreme Canopy.
Every time the black thunder shattered the canopy, they were very sure that it was the last time the canopy was going to recover. However, the canopy bewildered them time and time again.
“It's the 27th Thunder! The Ancestral Master is indeed more than just a name!” Gu Mingping said emotionally.
Of course, his laments were filled with a heartfelt reverence for his Ancestral Master.
Yin Feihuan's curvy figure shuddered momentarily as she exclaimed in uncontrollable excitement, “It makes sense that the Ancestral Master can endure 49 levels of Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation.”
While they rejoiced, they had no idea that Luo Yunyang's mind power was already at its limits.
All of his attributes, including those of the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast, had been converted to Mind Attribute.
Even so, Luo Yunyang knew that he wasn't going to be able to endure five more Martial Path Heavenly Tribulations.
Although his mind power had improved tremendously after swallowing the fragments of origin saws laws, the improvement was far less than the increase of the power of the Tribulation Thunder.
The 33rd thunder broke the Supreme Hidden Sky Canopy. Knowing that it was going to be difficult for him to sustain the tribulation with just his mind power, Luo Yunyang used the Divine Blade of the Great Chaotic Hole.
Although he was able to break the thunder every time he cleaved, he felt that he was starting to become more and more powerless.
When the 45th thunder landed, its color changed from black to purple, and when Luo Yunyang slashed at the purple thunder, the broken pieces of thunder transformed into a roaring dragon, a soaring phoenix, a raging golden lion, and a flying winged tiger…
It could be said that the hidden power in each of these law fragments was a rare treasure of the galaxy.
“Just one piece, Ancestral Master! Please leave behind one piece for me!” Gu Mingping yearned for it. However, he knew it was impossible.
His covetous eyes watered when he saw a purple Qilin throttling in the void. He had a feeling that he would be able to advance to the Celestial Domain Grade if he absorbed the fragment that looked like a purple Qilin.
Advancing from an Earth Celestial to a Sky Celestial was something Gu Mingping had only dreamed of. It was a pity that Luo Yunyang absorbed the fragment into his body while Gu Mingping was salivating from afar.
“Grand Elder, it's going to be dangerous for the Ancestral Master this time!” Yin Feihuan began to worry as she looked on.
Not even the ancient books of the sect had recorded scenes of a fragment transformation like this one. However, it had now appeared in the Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation.
Luo Yunyang still had four levels of Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation to go, so it was still inconceivable how terrifying this would be.
Yin Feihuan's words woke Gu Mingping up from his daydreams about the origin source law fragments. His dry old face immediately turned pale again.
Just as he was about to speak, the void, which had been completely wrapped in a blood-red tinge, changed color in an instant. Eventually, a purple hue emerged in the void and gave off a hallowed vibe.
When this purple hue appeared, a long purple sword appeared in the void, shooting down directly at Luo Yunyang!
Gu Mingping's heart trembled insanely when he saw the long purple sword. He had an impulse to prostrate on the ground and worship it.
However, after carefully looking at the purple longsword, he couldn't help but squeal, “Purple Firmament! It's the Purple Firmament Sword!”
“The Purple Firmament Sword belonging to Purple Firmament Heavenly Venerate? How is this possible!” Yin Feihuan couldn't care less about formalities while she questioned Gu Mingping.
Gu Mingping only pointed at the longsword that was falling downwards silently. Yin Feihuan saw the two characters “Purple Firmament” embedded on the hilt of the sword.
When the two characters appeared, Yin Feihuan felt as if a huge curse was suppressing her heart.
Although Luo Yunyang had recognized the Purple Firmament Sword, he did not know who it belonged to. Looking at the purple sword was enough to make Luo Yunyang's scalp go numb.
Even though he could sense that the sword couldn't compare to a strike from an actual Heavenly Venerate, it was still much stronger than when he had faced Sacred Emperor Ding Guang.
More importantly, this was just the 46th level of the Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation!
