Chapter 940: Improve! Improve!
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
In front of the stone statue, Zheng Tai’s body was covered in blood as if he could die at any moment.
Under such a critical moment when he could enter his grave at any second, Zheng Tai gradually gained enlightenment and finally made a breakthrough.
The world bell rang.
The mysterious force descended.
As the golden light flashed, Zheng Tai’s injuries recovered at a speed visible to the naked eye. In fact, it even recovered his deteriorating appearance back to his normal appearance. His body was giving off a bright light akin to a god.
A wave of pure Rule Force spread, causing several level one world espers closest to Zheng Tai to almost get ejected by this force. When they looked at Zheng Tai again, they couldn’t help but feel terrified.
What strange force was that?
Just broken through, and he already surpassed them? They couldn’t understand, but for those higher-level powerhouses, this was an easy to comprehend phenomenon.
“A new Rule Force is born.”
“Not only that, but it’s also the same type as his talent. Such strength… ”
Even Liu Ping couldn’t help but be deeply moved.
“How could he be this strong?”
A level one world esper was shocked. One needs to know that he had struggled so long before he managed to step into the world realm, and needed another few years to stabilize his strength as a level one world esper. Zheng Tai had just made a breakthrough, and his strength was already far superior to him.
“It’s not that he’s strong.” Liu Ping shook his head, “It’s because you’re too weak. Using other means and comprehending non-native Rule Force to become a world esper, such a method itself is weak to begin with. At the same time, it also meant that you gave up on being the strongest esper. This fact, during the breakthrough in the past, you guys should have thought of it.”
Several people went silent.
Obviously, they knew about this fact, right?
Then why did they insist on taking the easier, alternative path? Because if one didn’t do so, they might still be struggling in the domain realm and be unable to breakthrough for the rest of their life. For them, being the strongest esper was a dream that would never be achieved. To become a world esper was already a blessing for them.
“Yeah, we’re already lucky enough.”
Everyone muttered to themselves.
“Since you all know, then why blame others for blocking your path?” Liu Ping smiled indifferently. Looking at Zheng Tai, his face was also quite complicated, “This generation, they’re indeed great. After all, their aim is to be the strongest esper…”
Hearing this, everyone was shocked.
The strongest esper…
They had thought of it.
However, who had the confidence to see this dream to the end?
Because that place was too tall, so high that it made everyone desperate, so high that it made everyone lose their courage to charge forward, even some of them who had the confidence ended up tired or reached a dead end.
This path was an extremely difficult one to begin with.
So far, no one has reached the summit.
However, when no one achieved it in the past, that didn’t mean there won’t be one in the future.
The Origin Ability Association had been monitoring the world all the time, and they were naturally aware that the energy concentration in the past two years was far better than before, resulting in endless breakthroughs. In short, the difficulty of breakthrough had dropped a lot that an esper’s cultivation speed increased by many times when compared to the past.
This was a new era.
And this new generation happened to be born at the right time.
Excellent talent, excellent environment, both factors created a batch of young and strong world espers! And the best among them was Wan Cheng!
During the trip in Taihu Territory, Wan Cheng broke through.
In the past, Chen Yifeng led his generation into the domain realm for the first time, but now it was Wan Cheng who led the next generation into the world realm by using such a short period of time.
He’s only twenty plus, right?
Unlike the luck of the first generation espers, Wan Cheng crafted a path for himself and had an unimaginable comprehension. At this age, without any doubt, Wan Cheng’s goal is to be the strongest esper!
Because he’s young, he had the capital.
Otherwise, even if you’re qualified, once you die before becoming the strongest esper, wouldn’t all your effort be wasted?
If one insisted that Wan Cheng was a unique case, then now, there was an additional one… Zheng Tai, a young and terrifying man. He was even younger than Su Hao and Wan Cheng. There was no doubt that the youngest world esper in history right now is Zheng Tai.
Wan Cheng and Zheng Tai.
In fact, there was another guy who was qualified to aim in becoming the strongest esper in Taihu Territory, the disciple of King of Fire. Unfortunately, he died.
“A new era is descending…”
Everyone seemed to have felt something and ended up emotional.
At this moment, Zheng Tai’s breakthrough had come to a conclusion. Regaining his senses, he had a look at his own state. He was also surprised, “I broke through!”
Everyone stepped forward to congratulate him.
The youngest world esper in history, his future would be limitless. Right now, no one dared to point out the child-like face of Zheng Tai anymore.
Zheng Tai scratched his head due to the awkwardness. The compliments from everyone made him feel great, but after his gaze swept across Su Hao, he went discouraged again.
So what if I’m a world esper?
I can’t compete with that perverted man at all!
As soon as he thought of this, Zheng Tai suddenly no longer felt excited, “Continue then.”
Everyone wasn’t sure of Zheng Tai’s thoughts, but they realized Su Hao was still standing in front of the stone statue, and Liu Ping was still under the rain.
Yes, they were still in the Great Despair!
At present, there were two more people who hadn’t received benefits yet.
“Let me try.”
Su Hao placed his palm on the statue.
A soft sound rang.
At the same time, Su Hao’s mind became high in spirit.
Just like what he previously guessed, the restoration introduced by the stone statue was of a violent nature, and the range of increment was between 80-120% whether or not one has Rule Force within his body. What Su Hao was thinking of was if he didn’t consume any Rule Force, what would happen? What if his Rule Force was full to begin with?
Whether it was him or Liu Ping, they both were qualified to test this theory.
At this time, what about the increment of Rule Force?
Su Hao inspected his body. His Rule Force was at 300 units now. During this period of time, with the appearance of Hurricane Force, combined with the forces available in his body, his Rule Force had unconsciously increased by another 100 units. Of course, this wasn’t the main point. The main point was…
His Rule Force was still full.
300/300 units, not even a single unit was consumed.
A wave of force emerged.
Directly charging into Su Hao’s body, the powerful force spread throughout his body. If he didn’t guess incorrectly, that force would increase the upper limit of Su Hao’s Rule Force! A wave of pure Rule Force emerged, and after spreading throughout his body, it became Su Hao’s own power.
Rule Force: 600 units.
It really increased by 100%!
Su Hao was surprised.
Sure enough, he didn’t guess incorrectly. The benefit given by the stone statue was simply a forceful increment. Thanks to his zero consumption, the amount of Rule Force in his body doubled. Just before Su Hao recovered from his shock, yet another wave of the mysterious force emerged.
Su Hao was stunned for a second before suddenly reacting.
How could he forget about it?
For other world espers, they only had Rule Force in their body. For Zheng Tai, he only had the origin energy in his body. Thus, the recovery provided by the stone statue was only once whether for the world espers or Zheng Tai.
But for him…
Yet another wave of energy emerged.
Just the same situation as Zheng Tai, the origin energy was mixed together with the Rule Force. This time, it was the Rule Force of Realization!
What kind of force is this?
Su Hao wasn’t clear.
However, when that force appeared, it almost tore Su Hao’s body apart. If not for his strong physique playing its role, Su Hao’s body would have exploded in an instant!
The Rule Force born from Realization was this powerful?
“This doesn’t look good.”
Su Hao was secretly shocked.
Without any hesitation, he utilized the Rule Force within his body to defend or to be precise, strip. Zheng Tai was enlightened in the moment of crisis and broke through into the world realm, but Su Hao knew that even if he comprehended the Rule Force, he still wouldn’t be able to breakthrough into the world realm.
Because he couldn’t.
Su Hao directly took action.
Since he couldn’t comprehend it, he might as well store it first.
His origin energy was enormous to begin with. Even with 1% of Rule Force, it was still an impressive amount. After entering Su Hao’s body, with the help of the original Rule Force in his body, the force contained within the origin energy was soon diverted into two pure powers.
One was the Realization’s origin energy.
The other one was the Rule Force born from Realization.
The first one returned to his body and integrated with the rest, while the other one was stored for later analysis.
“This was an unexpected reward.”
Su Hao was surprised.
Doubling his Rule Force units was already enough to make him happy. Now, with the birth of a Rule Force that truly belongs to himself, how could he not be surprised again? After realizing the force, Su Hao suddenly remembered something. Based on how the stone statue acted, there was still…
A wave of pure internal force rushed in.
Su Hao’s internal force, which wasn’t a lot to begin with, suddenly doubled.
Su Hao squeezed his fist excitedly. If not for him being unallowed to let others know, he would definitely give one loud cry. This was simply amazing. All the forces in his body doubled! Plus, there was an additional new Rule Force! Compared to anyone present here, his improvement was the true one, a real generous one.
In fact, his reward was even more than Zheng Tai.
His reward session was over.
Su Hao strongly suppressed the excitement in his heart.
The reason he went ahead of Liu Ping was to prevent Liu Ping from discovering the real problem. Then… what should he do now?
Even with three consecutive improvements, that stone statue seemed to be working fine still.
“Its power isn’t exhausted yet?”
Su Hao frowned slightly.
Liu Ping’s power literally had zero consumption. If he’s to touch this stone, his force would be doubled, and this would be troublesome. Although they seemed to be allied, no matter whether it was a desperate situation or after their identity is exposed, Su Hao didn’t think that they would happily become friends by then.
Since they were hidden enemies, there was no need to leave benefits to him.
But how could he consume the force of the stone statue until it became empty?
When Su Hao wasn’t able to think of a solution, his gaze suddenly looked at Kingdom of Heaven. It was then that he suddenly thought of a novel idea…
Since he could improve, what about Li Tiantian and the others?
