Chapter 409: The So-Called Heavenly Evocation!Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“City Lord w.a.n.g has graduated from the Dharmic Armament Pavilion of Ethereal Dao College. Is there a possibility that you can already sense the Heavenly Evocation segment now?” The illusory female figure suddenly spoke as she looked at w.a.n.g Baole.
w.a.n.g Baole was shocked, and soon noticed Jin Duoming’s bewilderment. Therefore, he took a look at the Stellar Source mountain and immediately realized that Jin Duoming couldn’t sense the object present in the Stellar Source.
Through the words of the illusory female figure, w.a.n.g Baole instantly understood what existed inside the Stellar Source.
“Dharmic Armament?” w.a.n.g Baole spoke softly.
“There are three ninth-grade Dharmic Armaments in the Stellar Source. Segregated from the outer environment by the Stellar Source, even Core Formation realm cultivators are unable to sense them. Only those Dharmic Armament cultivators who are capable of refining Dharmic Armaments, or those who could sense the Heavenly Evocation segment would be able to sense it.” As the illusory female figure spoke, she glanced at w.a.n.g Baole several times. The fact that w.a.n.g Baole had reached the state where he was able to sense the Heavenly Evocation at his tender age shocked her.On the other hand, Jin Duoming was even more surprised, and he widened his eyes and looked incredulously at w.a.n.g Baole. w.a.n.g Baole didn’t tell anyone about his attempts at refining a Dharmic Armament, and therefore few people knew about it. w.a.n.g Baole had unknowingly reached a high level in the refinement of Dharmic Armaments.
“Why are the Dharmic Armaments placed in the Stellar Source? Could it be related to the Anti-Spirit Bomb?” w.a.n.g Baole didn’t care about Jin Duoming’s facial expressions, instead, expressing his queries immediately.
In reality, coming to this research facility, seeing the Stellar Source, and realizing that there were Dharmic Armaments within it, he suddenly had a premonition that perhaps… the Heavenly Evocation segment—which he wasn’t particularly clear about, and didn’t have a complete understanding of—could gain some traction here.
If it was a question asked by others, the illusory female figure might not answer it. That would be the case even though w.a.n.g Baole and Jin Duoming’s application had been approved. However, after thinking about it, she looked at w.a.n.g Baole, seemingly realizing that w.a.n.g Baole was now caught in a bottleneck. She sighed and gestured before nodding her head.
“Before introducing the relationship between the Anti-Spirit Bomb and the Dharmic Armament, you must first know what the Dharmic Armament is exactly!” As the illusory female figure spoke, she raised her right hand and pointed. Instantly, the black-colored Stellar Source mountain became blurry and gradually turned translucent, revealing the three ninth-grade Dharmic Armaments within it!
“These are Dharmic Armaments!” w.a.n.g Baole turned to look immediately. After seeing them clearly, his pupils constricted. Even Jin Duoming, who had seen a ninth-grade Dharmic Armament before, was also shocked by everything that laid before his eyes.
Right now, in the transparent Stellar Source, extraordinary Dharmic Armaments were present. There was a black dragon the length of one’s arm, a firebird covered in golden flames that was giving off a golden glow, and a stone man who was holding a flash of lightning in his hands!
Regardless of whether it was the black dragon or the firebird, a suppressive force emanated from them. Like the stone man wielding the flash of lightning, an astonishing aura radiated from their bodies. Even though it was blocked by the Stellar Source, it was still as if the G.o.ds had awakened, and could easily send shock waves in all directions.
“All these are Artifact Spirits? Impossible! They’re not Artifact Spirits!” w.a.n.g Baole’s breathing quickened. He suddenly felt that there was something incorrect about everything he had learned about Dharmic Armaments!
According to the sayings of the four Dao Colleges, the Dharmic Armament combined Heaven and Earth power and was a supreme Dharmic Treasure formed after integrating the Artifact Spirit within it, which was why it was termed ‘Armament’!
The Dharmic Armament originated from the refinement technique recorded on the fragments of the ancient greenish-bronze sword. That led to the clan involved in refining treasures, and as more fragments related to treasure refinement were discovered, Dharmic Armament cultivators from each faction emerged. At the same time, it continued using the same naming convention as that recorded on the ancient greenish-bronze sword fragment.
“The Dharmic Armament knowledge that the Federation is teaching now isn’t wrong. However, it lacks a core ideal. It is not that they were ignorant. Instead, it is the Federation’s rule that they couldn’t disseminate the skills w.i.l.l.y-nilly. For seventh- and eighth-grade Dharmic Armaments, there would be no effect on the refinement process regardless of whether they are aware of this core principle. It is only important to understand this core principle when refining a ninth-grade Dharmic Armament.” The illusory female figure spoke softly, with a hint of chilliness in her voice. She didn’t do it on purpose but based on instinct.
“What you’re seeing is indeed not the Artifact Spirit, but the bare image formed through the transmogrification of a ninth-grade Dharmic Armament. In reality, the so-called Heaven and Earth power are formed by the combination of the will of every single item, which naturally includes all those mythical beings that had existed since ancient times. After their deaths, they didn’t dissipate. Instead, they integrated into the will of Heaven and Earth!
“However, even though their will existed before the Spirit Inception Era, we are unable to sense or use it. The emergence of the Spirit Inception Era and the progress of the cultivation civilization allowed us to now have the ability to feel it, and also gives us the right to use it!
“The Heavenly Evocation segment in Dharmic Artifact refinement, in reality, requires one to sense the will of the mythical beings that exist between Heaven and Earth and draw their will into the Dharmic Artifact to transform it. They use the Artifact Spirit as a medium for their will so that, to a certain extent, they would reincarnate and allow continuation to occur!”
“This is the core of a Dharmic Armament!” Jin Duoming was a little confused about what the illusory female figure was saying, but to w.a.n.g Baole, her words were like a bolt of lightning that struck his head strongly, making his body tremble and his mind buzz noisily with activity. Even his breathing stopped momentarily.
He widened his eyes even more. The feelings he experienced when researching the Heavenly Evocation resurfaced in his mind right now. There seemed to finally be an answer for those failures. There was finally a lead to all those sensations.
“So this is it!” w.a.n.g Baole felt that the confusion he had about Dharmic Armaments had significantly dissipated. He seemed to be able to catch a glimpse of his path ahead, and it could be said that this trip to the research facility was a golden blessing, even if it were to end right now.
Noticing that w.a.n.g Baole had understood it, the illusory female figure’s cold voice sounded once again.
“There are many mythical beings that have existed since the beginning of Earth. Furthermore, they differed in power. Therefore, the draw needed to refine the seventh-grade Dharmic Armament is relatively easy, and if one was lucky, it was even possible to refine an eighth-grade Dharmic Armament. However, since ancient times, there are just too few Heavenly Evocations capable of supporting a ninth-grade Dharmic Armament…
“At the same time, there is a very high demand in terms of the materials and Artifact Spirits needed. All these restrictions resulted in the fact that there are now less than thirty ninth-grade Dharmic Armament in all the factions of the Federation, including those amongst commoners!
“As for the relationship between the Dharmic Armament and the Anti-Spirit Bomb… To a certain degree, you can equate the power of the Anti-Spirit Bomb to the force that forms after a ninth-grade Dharmic Armament implodes…”
“This involves the theory of refining a Dharmic Armament, which is also how the will of the G.o.ds are being carried. However, that isn’t all. At the same time, it involves the collision between Spirit Restriction and antimatter.” With that, the illusory female figure didn’t continue. In reality, the reason she revealed those core top secrets was that she had received notification that she was allowed to say them.
Just that information alone had a significant impact on w.a.n.g Baole. When he heard about the collision with the antimatter, for some unknown reason, the first thought that surfaced in his mind was the Spirit Qi and Negative Spirit Qi, which was also known as the Dark Qi, colliding together. He wondered if that could also produce an astonishing force.
However, he was unable to test it out right where he was. After committing it to his memory and as the illusory female figure left, he carried on, occasionally turning to look at the Stellar Source mountain. He was thinking about when he would have a Stellar Source mountain of his own. He vaguely guessed that it might be the key to him refining a ninth-grade Dharmic Armament.
Even though Jin Duoming wasn’t very clear about this matter, he had seen w.a.n.g Baole’s reaction and how deep in thought he appeared. He immediately realized that this trip was immensely helpful to w.a.n.g Baole, and with that, he began to think actively and concluded that he had to place a higher bet on w.a.n.g Baole.
In this way, the duo who had different thoughts followed the illusory female figure and left research room number two. As they continued down the pa.s.sageway, they entered research room number three, which Zhao Pinfang was in and was also the final destination of their journey.
Even though there were many research rooms in the research facility, with at least tens of them at one glance, they weren’t all accessible to w.a.n.g Baole and Jin Duoming. Looking at where Zhao Pinfang was located, one would know that they would only be able to view three research rooms at most.
Research room number three looked different from the previous two rooms. The moment they stepped in, a research room that had no equipment, no Stellar Source mountain, and no research staff was presented before w.a.n.g Baole. It couldn’t even be considered a research room, and was more like an ordinary mountain cave!
However, on the walls of the cave, a mural of the cosmos was carved. On that mural, numerous stars dotted the night sky, and there was a gray planet amongst it. The planet seemed to have reached the end of its lifespan, and was now in the process of breaking apart. Uncountable spirits who looked to be in excruciating pain were emerging from the disintegrating planet and congregating into a stream.
w.a.n.g Baole didn’t pay much attention to all that. The moment he entered, his gaze, as well as that of Jin Duoming’s, uncontrollably landed on a middle-aged man whose back was facing them. He was looking at the mural and the spirit stream!
A blue-shirted man, who looked like a scholar and had a head of gray hair that appeared like a silver river, stood there, like a mountain. Even though he didn’t turn back, an indescribable suppressive force was emanating and spreading in all directions from his body!
He was the lead spirit researcher, the Dao partner of the Martian Colony Governor, Zhao Pinfang!
