“I don’t have time for you now,” the man in red snorted at Li Bai. He continued to chase Buttface. “You don’t need to rush to your death!”
The man in red knew Buttface was not an ordinary dog. He was a dog with a strong physique and formidable strength. He should be captured for further study!
However, Xu Que wouldn’t allow the members of the Sea Tribe to implement their plan. He ordered the Thunder Illusion Body to stop the man in red.
“I don’t know what kind of seafood you are,” Xu Que said. “However, as long as you are a seafood, we will accept your meat without question. Here is my bowl, now climb in so we can eat you!”
“Hmph! You stupid scoundrel!” the man in red said.
The man in red was angry and started to attack the Thunder Illusion Body with killing magic arts.
The Thunder Illusion Body only had 70% of Xu Que’s strength. Therefore, he could easily be defeated by the man in red in close combat, for Xu Que’s real body had already been wounded in the close combat with him. Hence, the Thunder Illusion Body retreated immediately and started to fight the man in red using balls of lightning.
The man in red and the Thunder Illusion Body were in the sky attacking each other with magic arts, lighting up the sky with bright flashes.
While the two figures were busy fighting, Xu Que summoned the System again and started to flip through the magic arts he had just obtained from the big gift package of the Heavenly Tribulation.
Genuine Flame Devouring Wave: a genuine fighting skill from the world of Fight Break Spheres, a basic Star Rank magic art, extremely powerful, has a prerequisite: achieve the full foundation of Flame Devouring Wave!
Genuine Six Corporeal Forms: a genuine fighting skill from the world of Fight Break Spheres, a basic Star Rank magic art, extremely powerful, has a prerequisite: achieve the full foundation of Six Corporeal Forms!
Genuine Buddha’s Fiery Lotus: a genuine fighting skill from the world of Fight Break Spheres, an intermediate Star Rank magic art, extremely powerful, has a prerequisite: achieve the full foundation of Buddha’s Fiery Lotus! (Attention: Genuine Buddha’s Fiery Lotus is extremely powerful. Please be careful while performing it to avoid being wounded.)
Genuine Secret of ‘All’ of the Nine Secrets: a genuine fighting skill from the world of Zhe Tian, an advanced Star Rank magic art, one of the Nine Secrets, has a 100% chance of multiplying the effect of a magic art by ten, has a prerequisite: achieve the full foundation of the Secret of ‘All’ of the Nine Secrets!
After reading this, Xu Que realized that the magic arts he learned before were not fake. The power of his magic arts was merely suppressed. This is why he was never able to achieve the catastrophic effects described in the novels that these techniques originated from.
For example, the Buddha’s Fiery Lotus magic art originated in the novel Fight Break Spheres. The power of the Buddha’s Fiery Lotus was always magnificent when Xu Que used it. However, he had always felt that something was missing, for it was never as powerful as it was in the novel.
Now that he had obtained the Genuine Buddha’s Fiery Lotus, this magic art would finally be as powerful as the technique used in Fight Break Spheres. His Flame Devouring Wave and his Six Corporal Form techniques would also reach their full potential.
However, Xu Que was a little bit embarrassed about receiving the Genuine Secret of ‘All’ of the Nine Secrets magic art. He was itching to try it, but he couldn’t perform it because he hadn’t learned the standard Secret of ‘All’ yet. And it was not easy to obtain the standard Secret of ‘All.’
The System’s purchasing method of the Nine Secrets was very elusive. He could only purchase one of the nine secrets at a time, and the secret that he purchased would always be random.
Xu Que had tried purchasing one of the Nine Secrets once before. He got the Secret of Weapon, which granted him the ability to rob an opponent of his weapon during combat. However, this magic art consumes a lot of True Core Strength when it is used, so he seldom used it. Besides, he was always able to defeat his opponents easily, even with them having strong weapons.
In the novel Zhe Tian, the Secret of ‘All’ was very formidable. It could enhance all the user’s attributes ten times over, including the user’s strength, his physique, his magic arts, and more. It was more comprehensive and powerful than the Soaring Dragon’s Nine Transformation, the People Killing Sword and the People Killing Book. On top of this, the success rate of the magic art was 100%.
Although he wanted to try this technique now, he did not have enough time to try and purchase it. The man in red was too powerful. The Thunder Illusion Body couldn’t hold out much longer.
When this fight is over, I should try my luck to see if I can purchase the Secret of ‘All’ from the System! Xu Que said in his heart.
He navigated the System interface and learned Genuine Flame Devouring Wave, Genuine Six Corporeal Forms and Genuine Buddha’s Fiery Lotus. These three Star Rank magic arts made Xu Que more powerful than ever before. He was a brand new powerhouse.
After he had upgraded his abilities, he eyed the Celestial Artifact Enchanting Spell which was still in the System package. This was the last gift that he had received from the big gift package. He had never received one of these spells before, so he read the description.
Celestial Artifact Enchanting Spell: effective for two hours, upgrades any item to Celestial Rank temporarily (Attention: a lot of True Core Strength is consumed when using a Celestial Artifact. Please use with caution to avoid using up too much True Core Strength!)
Pooh! As a tough-acting king, I am very strong. I don’t need to worry about using up all of my True Core Strength! Xu Que snorted in his mind.
Xu Que took out his eight-star sword and used the Celestial Artifact Enchanting Spell on it without any hesitation. This spell would only upgrade ordinary items to the Celestial Rank for two hours. Despite the time limit, there was no sense in wasting this opportunity to test how formidable a Celestial Artifact could be.
All of a sudden, the sword gave off a dazzling beam of light. A cloud of magnificent Spiritual Qi rose up and permeated the area.
Everyone was surprised.
“How did the Spiritual Qi in this area become so magnificent? All of my pores are opened!”
“My God! Is it because of the God of Cookery’s sword?”
People turned around to look at Xu Que in surprise.
The man in red who was battling the Thunder Illusion Body in the sky was also surprised.
“A Celestial Artifact? How could this be possible? How do you have a Celestial Artifact?” the man in red shouted.
The sword in Xu Que’s hand started to vibrate violently.
This vibration was not caused by Xu Que, but by the sword itself. It seemed as if the sword had been triggered by some kind of force. It vibrated so violently that it almost flew out of Xu Que’s hand.
The next moment, the light on the sword faded. The Spiritual Qi and the vibrations had also grown weaker. It seemed like the sword had been restored to its original state.
“Sh*t! What’s going on?” Xu Que asked, his eyes wide.
What the h*ll? Shouldn’t the spell last for two hours? This was even shorter than one minute!
“System, explain this!”
Ding! “A Sword Spirit is found inside the sword, who is in secluded cultivation. After the host used the spell to upgrade the sword to a Celestial Sword, the Sword Spirit absorbed all the Spiritual Qi!” the System replied.
Xu Que was dumbfounded.
The Sword Spirit did this!
When Xu Que was in the Water Nation, he had heard that every Sword Spirit needed to have a period of secluded cultivation. However, he didn’t expect for Sword Spirits to be troublesome when in this state. He had managed to create a temporary Celestial Artifact with great difficulty. However, this temporary Celestial Artifact was gone before he could use it.
Gah! I am so pissed off!
“Hehe, I thought that that was a Celestial Artifact, but is just a grandiose piece of scrap!” the man in red sneered.
Xu Que looked at the man in red with a cold smile.
So what? Now I have three Star-Rank magic arts. I can defeat you easily with any one of them!
Xu Que stepped out and looked up at his Thunder Illusion Body.
“Li Bai, you can come back now. It’s my turn,” Xu Que said ostentatiously.
“OK!” the Thunder Illusion Body said. He retreated and landed on the ground.
“You, cook! You also seek for death?” The man said, shaking his head.
Xu Que squinted his eyes.
“Little seafood, have you heard of a palm technique which can fall from the sky?”
