The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 340
Chapter 340: Karma
“Hey what the hell is this?” Shamaila shouted as she struggled against the vines constricting them. “Is this part of his traps again?”
“It sure is….” Fang Yu replied as she furrowed her eyes in confusion.
“Yeah, these traps are somewhat strong, but compared to me when I use my real power, these traps are nothing.” Fang Yu then looked at the vines wrapped around her.
“I know that Solomon needs to conserve energy in order to heal… but isn’t this a little weak compared to his real power?”
Fang Yu was sure that if Solomon could have wanted it, he could create better and stronger traps.
If the starting traps were like this, it means either of the two things.
It could be that Solomon was so injured that these traps are the best that he can do, or that his first traps are weak, and the incoming traps will get stronger and stronger.
Fang Yu of course wished the reason was the former.
“Shamaila.” Fang Yu whispered back as Tang Li pouted in annoyance. “It seems like we do not need to beat the traps for them to come.”
“Don’t tell me that even if we do nothing, the number of traps will just continue to increase?” Shamaila sighed as she saw that they were about just 10 meters above the ground.
“That’s exactly it.” Fang Yu replied, looking unperturbed even with all the sounds of clicking jaws made by the skeletons.
“So what are you going to do? Are you going to fight them all, or we will just wait it out?”
“We will wait it out.” Fang Yu smiled as her eyes began to be tinted with a green shade. She managed to touch both Tang Li and Shamaila even with their bonds.
Shamaila and Tang Li then felt their bodies turning ethereal, like an immaterial object. They watched in wonder as they phased through the vines.
“Yeah, that definitely worked.” Fang Yu murmured as they went up high into the air again.
“What is that? I thought you could not use your real power in here?” Shamaila asked as she stared at Fang Yu in envy.
“Oh, that ability was something I created by my own, so it is not a power related to Immortal Cultivation or Godly Ascension. Because of that, I can freely use this power here.”
That was one of the things that Fang Yu discovered on planetary restrictions.
Planets will only reject cultivation prowess that exceeds the stage of the said planets.
But a power not considered by the Universe as exactly cultivation will still be allowed to stay. One example of that include the Djinns with their Nature Power.
And then Fang Yu thought that maybe the bloodline abilities of Divine and Godly Divine Beasts will also work as they are considered to be not ‘cultivation’ per se.
That theory of hers was confirmed when she used the Glaistig Essence Core for her to take control of the soul avatars of her poor enemies.
At that point then, Fang Yu knew that she could rely on her essence cores to somewhat fight on this planet.
But without the aid of her cultivation, the abilities of her essence core will be weakened too.
And because she cannot use her cultivation on this planet, she will not be able to fuel her essence core abilities with the mana and qi inside her body.
As such, she can only use her vitality to fuel her essence core abilities.
That means she had to be thrifty on using her essence core abilities on this planet, for her vitality was way less compared to the amount of qi and mana inside her body.
If she uses up all her vitality, she will obviously die.
“That means I cannot just wear my Khaulkotoroi Armor and start mowing down those skeletons. Its best that I use my abilities for a short amount of time, so that I can save up my vitality.” Fang Yu thought to herself as she cupped her chin.
“But well…. I have been relying on one of my essence core abilities earlier…. Without that, the three of us could have been skewered by those flying spears already.”
The ability that Fang Yu was talking about came from her Cat Form, the Lucky Cat.
She had been using that form to make the spears thrown by the skeleton army narrowly miss her and her companions.
Just like what its name said, the Lucky Cat has the power to make itself lucky.
But it was not just as simple as ‘I will be lucky now’.
Actually, the Lucky Cat can manipulate karma and karmic connections. Of course the stronger the Lucky Cat becomes, the better and stronger karma it can manipulate.
Karma manipulation is complicated, resulting in assorted effects depending on how karma was manipulated.
But the precious predecessors of the Lucky Cat usually just used their karmic manipulation to amp up their karmic luck, hence the name Lucky Cat.
“Hmph, those idiots!” That was what Fang Yu thought when Old Man gave her the introduction about the Lucky Cat before.
“If I have this ability, I can manipulate karma in better ways, like isolating a person by making his karmic connections to others disappear, or making two mortal enemies fall in love with each other by thickening their karmic bonds!(That’s too messed up Fang Yu, even with Wang Hao’s standards)
That was the reason why Fang Yu took the Lucky Cat for her Cat Form.
But to her dismay, she suddenly found out why the previous Lucky Cats usually just use their ability to increase their luck.
Fang Yu found out that the power of the Lucky Cat’s karma manipulation depends on the amount of money the Lucky Cat had. The more money the Lucky Cat has, the stronger its abilities will be.
And by money, Fang Yu was talking about the amount of Universe Stones that the Lucky Cat has.
“What the f**k! How come this s**t was a Divine Beast!”
Universe Stones was an upgraded version of the spirit stones, and they are rare.
Because of that rarity, Universe Stones have a much higher value than the usual spirit stones, that made Fang Yu even shiver after hearing the conversion rate.
As such, Universe Stones were usually used on very important transactions which was at the level where one buys or sells star systems or sometimes even galaxies!
And a Lucky Cat must have a lot of Universe Stones if it wants its karmic manipulation ability to get stronger.
And as to be expected, Fang Yu does not have any Universe Stone yet on her possession.
So she can only use the most basic karmic manipulation of a Lucky Cat.
And that is to subtly strengthen or weaken a person’s karmic luck.
Since this is the most basic, the luck she can manipulate was also weak.
If she wants to increase it, she had to get Universe Stones.
But right now, this ability was enough make the spears miss them.
“Oh yeah, there is that thing too.”
With her undergoing 3 Celestial Nirvanas, Fang Yu’s body has the power comparable to that of a Third Stage Practitioner.
Since that power came from her Celestial Phoenix Form, it was not considered as a cultivation power.
That means that Fang Yu’s body can exert body power comparable to the Third Stage without being expelled.
But even with that, those vines were still able to restrict Fang Yu.
“So these vines must be around the Fourth or Fifth Stage in strength. If I use my real power, maybe I can break those vines…….”
But while Fang Yu was thinking about these things, her eyes suddenly narrowed as she felt another power surge from the sky.
She looked up, and what she saw made the probability list change for the third time.
This is the third trap by Solomon, which made Fang Yu’s expression turn solemn.
“So the real deal starts now….”
