Chapter 111: Target: Grade-1 Soul Altar!
Dao Seed: Every time you learn a martial technique, dao arts, divine ability, and so on, you have a certain chance of comprehending it directly!
Cooldown: 1 year
This passive skill was probably the only one among Zhou Feng’s many passive skills that strengthened his comprehension ability.
He had a chance to comprehend any dao techniques and arts with this passive skill.
One must know that many dao techniques and arts not only required talent but also relied heavily on luck.
Once fate arrived, you might naturally learn it.
Especially the more profound the technique, the more profound it would be. Given Zhou Feng’s talent, he might not be able to learn it in his lifetime.
But with the passive Dao Seed, he didn’t need to worry that his talent would drag him down.
Although the cooldown time of this passive skill was a bit long, this 1-year cooldown time was nothing compared to its powerful effect.
Zhou Feng relied on the passive Dao Seed to comprehend the Demon-Devouring Technique forcefully.
‘I can give it a try and see how powerful this Demon-Devouring Technique is!’
He circulated his Demonic Qi and started to refine Gong Qu in the demonic cocoon.
“What… What should I do?”
“He has learned the Demon-Devouring Technique. Maybe he is the Grand Elder’s direct disciple!”
“As expected, the one who caught the eye of the great Eldest Senior Sister is definitely not an ordinary person!”
“Is there another competitor?”
Looking at Zhou Feng’s actions, the people around did not stop him.
This was because Gong Qu had clearly been defeated in this battle. Zhou Feng had defeated Gong Qu head-on.
According to tradition, Gong Qu’s life or death could not be controlled.
Not to mention that Zhou Feng had also learned the Grand Elder’s signature Demon-Devouring Technique. He might even be the Grand Elder’s true disciple.
Zhou Feng was now qualified to fight for the position of Sect Leader with the Grand Elder as a backer.
As a large amount of Demonic Qi was being consumed, Gong Qu kept screaming from within the demonic cocoon.
That mournful wail made everyone’s hair stand on end.
But as time passed, Gong Qu’s voice became quieter and quieter.
In the end, he was directly consumed into a ball of Demonic Qi.
Only a few soul artifacts and storage rings were left.
And that ball of surging Demonic Qi was contained in Zhou Feng’s body.
‘I have to leave this place quickly!’
Zhou Feng realized that this wasn’t the place to use the Demon-Devouring Technique and immediately turned into an afterimage as he flew away.
This was the ultimate skill of the Tri-Gu Sect’s Grand Elder, Old Demon Gu, and was also the key to Old Demon Gu’s position as the Grand Elder.
Its domineering aspect was that it could devour the enemy’s cultivation, constitution, Spiritual Qi, and so on, directly converting and making them a part of the practitioner.
Bottleneck? In front of the Demon-Devouring Technique, such a thing didn’t exist at all.
Back then, Old Demon Gu had broken through to the Soul Altar realm in an extremely short period, directly reaching the Purple Mansion realm in one step.
He had even stimulated his own bloodline and opened up his own innate divine ability.
Old Demon Gu had gone from an ordinary disciple to the Grand Elder in just a few years.
All of this was due to the Demon-Devouring Technique.
However, not many people coveted such a heaven-defying technique.
The reason was very simple—the side effects were too severe!
Ever since Old Demon Gu had broken through to the Purple Mansion realm, his cultivation had been stagnant.
He hadn’t been able to advance for many years. What followed the Purple Mansion realm was known as the Divine Ability realm, and it required a pure soul to reach it.
Old Demon Gu had used the Demon-Devouring Technique to devour too many people, so not only was he crazy, but his soul had also been contaminated.
Countless thoughts were constantly lingering on his soul.
Moreover, his mind was splitting at all times. The Thousand-Faced Demon was Old Demon Gu’s nickname, which also explained his actual predicament.
At present, Zhou Feng was also facing such a problem.
After returning to his room, he vaguely felt a person’s voice ringing in his ears.
That mass of Demonic Qi started to fuse with Zhou Feng.
His Demonic Qi, Blood Qi, and soul power all increased at the same time, and he broke through the bottleneck of the Grade-7 Soul Altar!
And this was just the beginning!
Traces of Demonic Qi started to fuse into Zhou Feng’s Soul Altar, and it was about to undergo another transformation.
“I am Gong Qu? No! I Am Zhou Feng!”
Zhou Feng shook his head and tried to wake himself up, but he always felt that someone was talking in his ear.
A wave of anxiety emerged from the bottom of his heart.
These were all side effects brought about by the Demon-Devouring Technique. If it were someone who was not mentally strong enough… they would definitely lose themselves under such circumstances.
One had to know that Zhou Feng had only swallowed one person. It was hard to imagine how Old Demon Gu had managed to survive such a consequence.
Fortunately, Zhou Feng’s mind was still rather firm, and the murmurs slowly disappeared from his ears.
“I made it!”
Zhou Feng was now like a dead fish, slumped on the ground.
It was too terrifying! He had almost lost himself just now.
This Demon-Devouring Technique was actually so dangerous that he had almost lost himself the first time he used it.
However, the risk may be great, but the benefits were also quite high.
Zhou Feng realized that he was already a peak Grade-7 Soul Altar cultivator, only one step away from Grade-6.
At the same time, the surge of his soul power also accelerated the Purple Jade Bell’s transformation speed.
All the Spiritual Qi in his body was transformed into surging Demonic Qi.
“And this is from devouring one person! If…”
Zhou Feng felt the change in his cultivation, and his mood became somewhat difficult to calm down.
The increase in his cultivation was simply too fast. Given this speed, wouldn’t it be easy for him to forge a Grade-1 Soul Altar as long as he devoured a few more people?
Perhaps, he would be able to break through to the Purple Mansion realm directly.
Such a terrifying benefit was enough to cause anyone’s adrenaline to surge.
The more one cultivated, the more difficult it felt to cultivate.
The feeling of only increasing one’s cultivation in the next few years was too unbearable.
No one would be able to resist the temptation of rapidly increasing one’s cultivation with such a method.
Zhou Feng was no different.
This evil technique was too powerful! It was even faster than the passive Soul Harvesting!
The passive Soul Harvesting required slowly reaping souls to increase his soul power, but the Demon-Devouring Technique could do this in one step.
One could even condense the Demon-Devouring Seal and attach it to another person’s body. When the time was right, they could use the Demon-Devouring Technique.
Zhou Feng did not forget that he also had the Demon-Devouring Seal on his body.
He was both a hunter and prey.
‘What should I do!?’
At this moment, a choice was placed in front of Zhou Feng.
‘Should I go crazy? Or should I tread carefully?’
To be honest, relying on his terrifying perception and the many resources in the blessed land, even though the chances were slim, Zhou Feng could still become a Pill Master if he worked hard.
Zhou Feng only pondered over this question for a second before making his decision.
That was to… go crazy!
That’s right! From the start, everyone knew Zhou Feng’s character. He liked to take the initiative to attack and risk his life.
He did not like to take things step by step and slowly settle down, even with the existence of the Golden Finger.
The restlessness in his bones kept him taking risks.
His target! A Grade-1 Soul Altar!
In an instant, Zhou Feng set his target—the cultivation of a Grade-1 Soul Altar..
