The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 474
Chapter 474: Soul Reformation
4 hours later.
“Holy s**t!” A extremely sorry-looking figure shot out from the water, and he looked extremely bedraggled.
All of this figure’s clothes were in tatters, as if he just faced an extremely serious calamity.
His face was gaunt and thin, which made it look like his life was just sucked out of him.
This person’s body was currently shivering, as he took some deep breaths to somehow compose himself.
In the end, this figure could not take it anymore as he slumped down towards the ground, falling unconscious in the process.
“Oh my, am I still alive?” Fang Lin muttered to himself as he slowly opened his eyes.
Upon seeing that he was back on the solid ground, he resisted the urge to shout as he checked his body.
“I am lucky that I got out of the Ebony River after I lost my consciousness…” Fang Lin muttered as he felt slightly scared.
Fang Lin spent his 4 hours in the Ebony River by continuously corroding and healing his body.
The pain that accompanied him at that time was so great that he just wished that he could die, even though it was already reduced by 50%
If it were not for the encouragement of Old Man and Old Meng, Fang Lin would have already passed out in the Ebony River.
If that were to happen, then Fang Lin will surely die.
So Fang Lin decided to hold on until the time came that Old Meng’s protection have come to an end.
“You are lucky that you just passed out when you reached the land.” Old Meng faintly said as her entire appearance seemed to be entirely pale.
“Are you ok, Old Meng?” Fang Lin asked with his raspy voice, as if he did not care for his current state. “Will you not fade away into nothingness?”
“Do not worry about me, Young Master.” Old Meng said as she began to break down back to Golden Liquid.
“The amount of energy that I used to protect you have made me thoroughly exhausted. Because of that, my only choice right now is to rest…” Old Meng’s words were cut off at this point as she went back inside Fang Lin’s Golden Gourd.
As for Old Man, he was also silent, as he went back to hide in the tablet.
Fang Lin could only snort a little after seeing this.
“Well, now that I have gone through that hellish process, it is time for me to reap my benefits!”
Fang Lin then inspected his body excitedly as he tried to analyze his new transformation.
“Ok, now even I am not sure about my body’s level of strength….” Fang Lin muttered wryly as he observed the condition of his body.
Due to the repetitive process of destruction and healing, Fang Lin’s cells and tissues have already evolved to be much tougher than before.
This also includes Fang Lin’s organs, muscles and bones!
Fang Lin reckons that just a single slap from him right now can easily destroy large boulders of rocks!
As for the strength of his current body, Fang Lin reckons that his body was comparable to that of a Peak-Third Stage Practitioner.
After all, his body just experienced an evolution which obviously led to a shocking improvement in power.
“This kind of power is really intoxicating!” Fang Lin shouted as he laughed uproariously.
With his current body right now, Fang Lin was sure that he can have a higher chance of surviving this final trial.
But having a stronger body was not the only thing that Fang Lin obtained.
With just a thought from Fang Lin, an orange-hued aura covered his body, making him look extremely imposing.
At the instant that Fang Lin did this, he felt that the toughness of his body has increased exponentially!
“Hahaha, my Orange Martial Aura really does wonders for me!” Fang Lin cackled as he placed his hands on his hips. “Now, I want to see who will dare punch me now!”
Just like what Old Man had expected, Fang Lin was able to unlock the Orange Martial Aura once he had succeeded on tempering his body in the Ebony River.
But Fang Lin’s greatest delight did not come from the increased defense brought by his Orange Martial Aura.
It came from its correlative effect with the Red Martial Aura!
The effect of the Red Martial Aura was to multiply the power of Fang Lin’s abilities by a factor of 10^(n), where n is the number of Marital Auras that Fang Lin has unlocked.
With Fang Lin unlocking 3 Martial Auras right now, that meant that Fang Lin can use the Red Martial Aura to make his abilities stronger by 10^(3) times or 1,000 times!
Just imagine Fang Lin’s Destructive DeathFlame Body having its power increased by 1,000 times. Something like that will decimate anyone under the Fifth Stage!
As for the early Fifth Stage, they will surely have to exert effort to defend themselves from such kind of attacks.
“Hehehe, if I unlock, all 7 Martial Auras, wouldn’t that mean that my abilities will increase by a factor of 10(7) or 10,000,000 times? Hehehe, having that power will really make me unstoppable!” Fang Lin muttered dreamily as he wiped the drool off his chin.
“But according to Old Man, unlocking the other Martial Auras at this point will just get more and more difficult. He even said that I would be extremely lucky to unlock them all!” Fang Lin then let out a breath as he slapped his cheeks lightly.
“But why should I care about that… I still have more things to focus on…” Fang Lin then suddenly felt a great stirring inside him, which prompted him to look in his soulscape.
Upon looking there, Fang Lin then saw a sight that made him extremely jolly.
He saw his Creation-Destruction Nascent Soul, which looked normal earlier, was suddenly experiencing massive change right now.
After a few seconds of struggle, Fang Lin saw his Creation-Desrtuction Nascent Soul was actually increasing in size!
It only stopped growing when it reached twice its original size.
“This…” Fang Lin was tongue-tied as he saw what happened.
After all, what he just saw was something that only a Fourth Stage Practitioner should experience.
What Fang Lin just witnessed was the so-called Soul Reformation!
From what Old Man told Fang Lin, the goal of a Fourth Stage Practitioner was to strengthen his soul until it reaches a point that it could support a Domain.
The process that a Fourth Stage Practitioners undergo to strengthen their souls was called Soul Reformation.
The process of Soul Reformation was just simple.
First, a Fourth Stage Practitioner must experience some insights that was highly related to their Dao/Law Soul.
They will then use these insights to nurture their Dao/Law Soul.
Once this was done, their Dao/Law Soul will increase in size and power.
Only when it reaches a certain increase in size that it can be considered to have passed one Soul Reformation.
According to the information that was told to Fang Lin, once the Dao/Law Soul has increased its size by 2 times, then it has underwent the First Soul Reformation.
Once this Dao/Law Soul has increased its size by 3 times, then it has passed the Second Soul Reformation.
4 times will be equivalent to the Third Souls Reformation and it will continue until the Ninth Soul Reformation which is equivalent to 10 times increase in size.
It will be only that that point that the practitioner can use his Dao/Law Soul to support a Domain!
“The Soul Reformation process should only be experienced by Fourth Stage Practitioners… But why am I, someone in the Third Stage, is experiencing it now?” Fang Lin muttered as he looked as his improved Creation-Destruction Nascent Soul.
“…” Fang Lin’s eyes then flashed as he gave his Nascent Souls a surprised look.
“Maybe by Nascent Souls can undergo Soul Reformation too!”
Fang Lin then cupped his chin as he ruminated on his conclusion.
“That is entirely possible, as my Creation-Destruction Nascent Soul had just clearly underwent Soul Reformation. Since it can happen to it, then my other Nascent Souls can undergo Soul Reformation too!”
By this point, Fang Lin was already trembling in excitement as he realized the benefits that he was about to get!
“Once all my Nascent Souls undergo Soul Reformation, my soul power and my overall power will eventually get stronger too…”
But that is not the only thing that made Fang Lin extremely excited. There is one word ringing in his mind right now, which made him too excited to speak.
Fang Lin was now confident that once all of his Nascent Souls finished the Nine Soul Reformations, then it will be also possible for them to support their own Domains!
In fact, Fang Lin had the inkling that once he steps into Fourth Stage with all of his Nascent Souls completing the Nine Soul Reformations, then he will gain access to numerous Domains!
If Fang Lin had 10 Nascent Souls that completed Nine Soul Reformations once he steps into the Fourth Stage, then it was guaranteed that Fang Lin will have Ten Domains, with each Domain corresponding to one Nascent Soul.
By that point, Fang Lin would not have any fear on fighting against anyone under the Sixth Stage!
But Fang Lin knew that it will be extremely difficult, even for him, to reach that stage.
After all, making more than one Nascent Soul complete the Nine Soul Reformations will require Fang Lin to have monstrous insight and numerous lucky encounters.
“The only thing I can do right now is to hope that I can do it…” Fang Lin muttered as he looked at his Nascent Souls.
Right now, Fang Lin had 6 Nascent Souls, with each of them corresponding to a Duality Concept that Fang Lin had comprehended.
If Fang Lin succeeds on making his Ice-Fire Nascent Soul complete the Nine Soul Reformations, then Fang Lin will gain the Ice-Fire Domain once he steps onto the Fourth Stage!
The same case goes to the Male-Female, Life-Death, Creation-Destruction, Space-Time, and Up-Down Nascent Souls.
Combine that with the Dual Soul Domain, and Fang Lin can gain a total of 7 Nascent Souls in the near future!
“Oh my god, how strong would I be at that time???” Fang Lin whispered to himself as he knew for a fact that it was extremely rare for anyone to have more than one Domain!
Well, the Multi-Headed Hydra was an exception, as this Godly Divine Beast can have 5 Domains once it reaches the Fifth Stage.
But Fang Lin was sure with one thing.
And that is that there is nobody in the history of the Practitioner World that was able to create more than one Domain while still being at the Fourth Stage!
Of course there are some monstrous geniuses that were able to create one Domain while they are at the Fourth Stage.
But Fang Lin is the only one that will be able to create multiple Domains at the Fourth Stage!
Knowing a fact like that was enough to make Fang Lin’s blood boil.
Fang Lin looked at the direction of Bai Huangdi and Veroinca as he said,
“So what if your original cultivation bases are stronger? I am still more talented than the both of you!”
