The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 472
Chapter 472: Tempering
After seeing everything that had happened, Fang Lin realized that he must get stronger as fast as possible here in the Final Trial if he ever wanted to win.
Fang Lin does not know why, but he had this certain feeling inside him that he must do his best to win the Final Trial in 3 days, or else his chance of winning will disappear forever.
“I do not know why I have this feeling, but I will make sure to do my best to avoid any miserable outcomes!”
Fang Lin then looked at the tents of Bai Huangdi and Veronica, and he could sense that they are busy on cultivating again.
Just like Fang Lin, both of them were suddenly struck by an urgent need to get stronger.
And since the environment of the Final Trial allows smoother breakthroughs, both Bai Huangdi and Veronica will use these to the limits!
As for Fang Lin, he was also tempted to break through right now.
But deep inside, he knew that him breaking through the Sixth Stage right now will be extremely hard, since he lacks the proper insight that was needed for the breakthrough.
Since it was like that, Fang Lin has to think of other ways to increase his strength.
And Fang Lin’s next way to get stronger had already shown itself to him.
“There is no doubting it, I can possibly unlock the Orange Martial Aura today!” Fang Lin thought excitedly as he clenched his fists tightly.
When Fang Lin broke through the Manifestation Stage earlier, he suddenly felt his Rainbow Dragon Heaven Core trembling greatly.
And when Fang Lin decided to inspect the Rainbow Dragon Heaven Core after his breakthrough, he suddenly saw that he was actually viable to unlock the Orange Martial Aura!
This is the third Martial Aura that Fang Lin will be able to wield!
If the Violet Martial Aura deals with soul protection and the Red Martial Aura deals with power amplification, what the Orange Martial Aura deals with is actually the simplest one.
The Orange Martial Aura’s effect was to strengthen a practitioner’s material defense!
This means that the Orange Martial Aura can protect a practitioner from any attacks that deals material damage like punch, sword slashes or even explosions!
As long as the power of the attack will be not that absurdly strong, the Orange Martial Aura can protect the practitioner for a longer amount of time!
Sure, Fang Lin already had the Khalkhotauroi Armor which protects him from material attacks.
But imagine Fang Lin using the Orange Martial Aura while wearing the Khalkotauroi Armor…
Fang Lin’s material defense at that point will be insanely strong!
But aside from the Khalkotauroi Armor, there is the Glaistig Ghost Form too, which technically, can also protect Fang Lin from material attacks.
However, there will be some situations that using the Glaistig Ghost Form will be inconvenient, and that is where the Orange Martial Aura enters the fray!
“But I still do not know how to fully unlock this Martial Aura…” Fang Lin muttered to himself as he shook his head.
What only Fang Lin got was the chance to unlock the Orange Martial Aura.
As for fully unlocking it, Fang Lin still has no idea on what to do.
All the Martial Auras of the Rainbow Dragon can only be unlocked through some special conditions, and the Orange Martial Aura was no exception to that.
“I only got the Red Martial Aura when I reached the Third Stage… As for the Violet Martial Aura, I only got that as a freebie when I obtained the Rainbow Dragon Essence… So what should I do for the Orange Martial Aura…” Fang Lin tilted his head as he tried to think of the best solution.
After 5 minutes of intense concentration, Fang Lin started to let out a snicker as he realized something
“I should have just done this way earlier! Why did I not think of that!”
Fang Lin then started to look around him, and he let out a visible sigh of relief as he saw that no one was fully observing him.
Bai Huangdi and Veronica were too preoccupied with their cultivation, that they were unable to monitor anyone now.
Upon seeing that everyone was extremely occupied, Fang Lin knew that his chance to leave will be right now.
Fang Lin started to slink away from the camp, as he used some of his skills to avoid detection.
Fang Lin continued running away from the camp until he was 50 kilometers away from it.
Fang Lin then looked around, making sure that nobody followed him.
After seeing no negative signs, Fang Lin let out a sigh as he sat on one of the boulders nearby him.
He then closed his eyes as he absolutely went still.
To anyone looking at Fang Lin from the outside, Fang Lin looked like he was just doing nothing with him just sitting at the same place with his eyes closed.
But the truth is that Fang Lin is currently in deep conversation with a person hiding in his storage.
“Howdy, Old Man.” Fang Lin mentally said as he looked at a wizened old man inside his storage. “You seem to be enjoying your stay in there…”
“Don’t raise you voice!!!” Old Man said as he gave Fang Lin a reproaching glare.
“No matter what way you talk, do not make it loud! Or else, both of us will die.”
“Old Man…” Fang Lin started to give Old Man a disappointed look as he said,
“What have you done for you to be this scared on appearing here? Did you offend someone important?”
Old Man’s current behavior here in the Final Trial was a little odd to Fang Lin.
Old Man had refused to even come out of the tablet the whole time, and the only reason that Old Man appeared was because he sensed that Fang Lin badly needed him now.
And even when there are no people around, Old Man still went on communicating through mental messages…
Talk about being paranoid.
“Tsk.” Upon seeing that Old Man was not keen on giving an explanation, Fang Lin decided to ignore his problems first as he said,
“Hey Master, I am not here to pry about your personal matters… I just need to know your opinion about the ways to unlock the Martial Auras of the Rainbow Dragon. Since you are so wise, you may have some ideas on it, right?”
“Well, at least you remembered on asking me now.” Old Man muttered as he let out a sigh of relief. “I have been waiting for you to ask me that question… And yet you only manage to do that now?”
“Well, a lot of things happened, you know…” Fang Lin muttered as scratched the back of his head. “But can you stop picking on me now? I still need your help with unlocking an aura!”
“Well then, tell me the Martial Aura that you are aiming for.” Old Man said as he started to pretentiously rub his beard. “Your master is here to aid you…”
“……..” Fang Lin tried to not give Old Man a withering look as he explained what happened with his Orange Martial Aura.
“Oh, the orange one? Hehehehe, I can still remember that bastard’s body when he donned the Orange Martial Aura….” Old Man muttered as his gaze started to turn distant. “That bastard even survived being thrown in a black hole with that orange aura with him! Truly miraculous…”
“You’re veering off the topic again.” Fang Lin bluntly said. “Can you focus, please?”
“Oh right.” Old Man let out an awkward cough as he cleared his throat.
“Actually, the way to unlock your Orange Martial Aura is just easy.” Old Man said as his eyes roved all over Fang Lin’s body. “You just have to make your body extremely strong.”
“Say what?” After hearing this, Fang Lin could not help but give out a retort. “I just need to have an extremely strong body? But isn’t my current body strong?”
Fang Lin’s words were not just a joke.
His body already underwent 3 Celestial Rebirths, which granted him with a body as tough as a Third Stage Practitioner.
Not only that, but his mutated Godly Divine Beast Bloodline had provided him with an extremely strong body too.
And with his perfectly refined body as the foundation, it will be hard to find anyone with a body stronger as Fang Lin’s at the same stage!
But it seems like that even with all of these enhancements, Fang Lin’s body was actually not yet that strong enough to unlock the Orange Martial Aura!
“Since your body is still not that strong enough, the only thing that you need to do is to strengthen your body.” Old Man said as he saw Fang Lin’s disappointed look. “But you must remember that your body must be strengthened greatly…”
“I got it.” Fang Lin replied quietly as the gears of his mind began to turn.
With only 6 hours left before the soldiers will set out, Fang Lin has to make sure that he unlocks the Orange Martial Aura at that timeframe!
But what body-strengthening technique could Fang Lin use?
Undergoing the 4th Celestial Rebirth is not possible, as it will be extremely flashy, which will just ruin Fang Lin’s disguise.
Besides, Fang Lin has to face a certain death situation to undergo the 4th Celestial Rebirth.
The current Fang Lin does not want to risk his life for now, as he was more inclined on keeping his life intact here in the Final Trial.
Upgrading his bloodline won’t help too, as his bloodline was already too powerful for that to happen.
“Hmm… are you perhaps not sure on what to do?” Old Man interjected as he saw the uncertain expression on Fang Lin’s face.
“Well, I only have 6 hours to unlock the Orange Martial Aura, and the options I have cannot fit within that timeframe.” Fang Lin replied exasperatedly.
Fang Lin then looked at Old Man with excitement as he asked him,
“Why Old Man, do you have something in there that can help me out?”
“Well… I know many body-tempering techniques, but most of them are incompatible with you.” Old man replied honestly.
“As for the techniques that are compatible with you, they will need much longer time to complete, so using them within 6 hours is impossible too.”
“Oh great, so what you are telling me is that what I am doing is basically impossible.” Fang Lin said with a deadpan expression on his face. “So what I am supposed to do now? Just stay here looking like a weirdo?
“Well… there is still one way for you to strengthen your body, and from what I can see around you, you can actually use it, and it will strengthen your body within 6 hours.” Old Man said as a hesitant expression appeared on his face.
“But Fang Lin, this technique will be extremely painful for you, that you might even wish that you are dead” Old Man said as he gave Fang Lin a grave look.
“Its just some pain right?” Fang Lin just gave Old Man a smug smile as he said,
“My master always told me that I can only gain something when I go through pain to obtain it! So, just show me what you are talking about! Pain won’t stop my will to win!”
“Don’t blame me later then.” Old Man muttered as he sent the instructions to the extremely eager Fang Lin.
“Now then Fang Lin, let us see where that ‘will’ of yours can take you…”
