Divine Magic Art? Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog Hand?
Confusion was fogging Xu Que’s brain. He had indeed been taken by surprise with the newly acquired Divine Magic Art. He had merely wanted to give it a try to see whether the second-rate Mighty Body was equivalent to the defensive power of an Inferior Celestial Artifact. He did not expect that he wouldn’t manage to test the defensive power of his Mighty Body, but instead absorb the massive chunk of the Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog and transform it into a Divine Magic Art.
He was really on a roll!
“Ha, ha, Buddy Xu, congratulations. I didn’t think the rumor about you and the Mighty Body was true. It’s amazing that you were able to absorb the robust Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog. I’m afraid your strength will rise several levels again!” The Confucian in white laughed and congratulated Xu Que.
“Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog? This d*mn Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog—if I touch you gently, you…” As Xu Que was talking, he stretched out a finger toward the Confucian in white.
The Confucian in white quickly took a step back. He shook his head and grinned bitterly. “Buddy Xu, I’ve just recovered from my injury. Don’t use me for any of your experiments again! In fact, the destructive power of the Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog is only limited to Celestial Artifacts and magic weapons. Generally, for Middle Grade Celestial Artifacts and below, if you give them a light touch, you can destroy them instantly. But if you touch people, the damage is very limited.”
“Oh? What’s the limit?” Xu Que raised his eyebrows and asked.
The Confucian in white pondered for a moment and replied, “Let’s put it this way, cultivators in the Human Celestial Stage and or below, if they touch the Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog, they will die on the spot. If those in the Earth Celestial Stage touch the Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog, they will be seriously injured. When those in the Heaven Celestial Stage and Golden Celestial Stage touch the Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog, they will be attacked by a chill that will slow them down greatly. Although it’s not fatal, it causes a lot of trouble. It is very hard to drive the chill from their bodies.”
The Confucian in white had a faint smile on his face and continued, “Of course, a cultivator like me with the first-rate Hell King’s Prison Suppression Physique, whose physical body has been refined, will have a little more resistance to this thing.”
Xu Que listened to his explanation, and he began to have doubts, “No, according to what you’ve said, there must have been some in the Heaven Celestial Stage and above who came here in the past. Why didn’t they simply walk through the Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog?”
“Stop fooling around, Buddy Xu. Being touched by the Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog is different from being totally immersed within the Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog. This is two different concepts! What I just explained would be the consequence of being touched by you. If you pressed the Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog on a person for a long time, even one in the Golden Celestial Stage would die!” The Confucian in white rolled his eyes.
“I see!” Xu Que nodded, and he finally revealed a smile.
Originally, he had thought that the Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog Hand could only restrain Celestial Artifacts and magic weapons. However, as long as the contact was long enough, it would be fatal for any in the Golden Celestial Stage. It was indeed formidable—a means of slaying the enemy and winning the battle!
He had an idea. He waved his right arm and all the white frost disappeared and his right hand resumed its original state.
The Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog existed in his body like Celestial Core Power. If he wanted to use it, he could activate it at any time. He could control it at ease.
Of course, all such possibilities and abilities were due to the powerful Mighty Body. It was able to accommodate the potent Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog. If he had had other physiques, even the first-rate Hell King’s Prison Suppression Physique, absorbing even a little bit of the Occult and Ghostly Ice Fog would have made him suffer instantly!
His thoughts were proven true when he saw the fear written on the face of the Confucian in white!
“This is enough, Buddy Xu. You’ve won a lot on this trip. We should get ready to leave now.” The Confucian in white was grinning from ear to ear at Xu Que. Although he had recovered his physical body, he still had to rely on Xu Que to leave the place.
“Yes, you’re right. We can get out of here once I’ve removed the restrictive barrier!” Xu Que nodded. He didn’t want to waste time. He had been in there for more than seven days. Buttface and the others were still waiting outside. If the Mystery Land had been sealed, what awaited him would be the endless razor-blade wind from the Void.
“Ha, ha, then I’ll count on you!” The Confucian in white was very excited. He had been trapped in there for thousands of years, and now he finally had the chance to leave alive. That was something he had never dared to think about before.
“By the way, Buddy Xu, I see that you have quite a few Inferior Celestial Artifacts with you. Are you a descendant of a King Refiner of Inferior Artifacts?”
Xu Que smiled. “Who said that I must be the descendant of a King Refiner of Inferior Artifacts in order to have so many Inferior Celestial Artifacts? To tell you the truth, this is normal for the Exploding Heavens Faction. Anyone who joins the faction will be given two Inferior Celestial Artifacts!”
“What?” The Confucian in white’s expression changed to a look of disbelief. “In just a few thousand years, has the world changed so much? It’s incredible that such a powerful faction has emerged.”
“Heh, heh, senior, let’s keep a low profile. The Exploding Heavens Faction doesn’t like to be in the spotlight!” Xu Que laughed.
The Confucian in white shook his head and grinned bitterly, “I had planned to produce a Celestial Artifact for you after I got out, as a way to repay your favor. I didn’t expect that you would have such an eminent background. I’m afraid it’s a bit difficult to repay this favor!”
“Yo! Senior, are you a King Refiner of Inferior Artifacts?” Xu Que asked curiously.
The Confucian in white was pleased, and he nodded, “Yes, thousands of years ago, I was already a King Refiner of Inferior Artifacts. I could produce Inferior Celestial Artifacts. I’ve kept myself busy all these years by thinking about various means of Equipment Refining. Now I’m confident that I can produce an Inferior Celestial Artifact or even try producing a Middle Grade Celestial Artifact!”
“D*mn it, this is fantastic, senior! I have a treasure that I need to refine. Forget it, you can simply join us. I can assure you that you won’t regret it!” Xu Que immediately became interested in recruiting his talents.
The Confucian in white burst out laughing. “Ha, ha, little boy, it’s all right to engage me to help you. How could you ask me to join the Exploding Heavens Faction, are you taking me as free labor?”
“Senior, don’t say that, we are known for cherishing talent. And we have a strong sense of justice. If you produce Celestial Artifacts for us, it’s akin to lending a hand in maintaining world peace!” Xu Que said in a righteous manner.
“Let’s talk about this later.” The Confucian in white waved his hand with a smile and shook his head. “I’m not against the idea of joining the Exploding Heavens Faction, but thousands of years ago I was a Sect Leader. Today, since I am able to return, I should see how they are doing first. If all is well with them, I would be free from all constraints. I can naturally join the Exploding Heavens Faction!”
“I see. I didn’t realize that senior was such a responsible person! I truly admire you!” Xu Que laughed, his face full of awe. He had always liked such upright and responsible people.
“Buddy Xu, you’re welcome!” The Confucian in white smiled and looked into the sky. He sighed with emotion, “After so many years, I don’t know if those little b*stards in the Equipment Refining Sect will still remember me!”
As soon as that remark was made, the smile on Xu Que’s face froze.
Equipment Refining Sect?
F*ck this, this old fellow was the Sect Leader of the Equipment Refining Sect thousands of years ago?
“By the way, Buddy Xu, I wonder if you’ve ever heard of our Equipment Refining Sect. I remember in that year…” Just then, the Confucian in white looked at Xu Que enthusiastically and wanted to show off about his Equipment Refining Sect. But before he could finish his sentence, he saw a huge fist smashing into his face.
