BTFTLIAW – Chapter 1487


Chapter 1487 – Lightning Pool

Mu Yu looked at Zhao Hai in annoyance as he said, “What do you think faith power is? Can anyone just get it? I know some methods of cultivating faith power, but I don’t have any means to get it.”

Zhao Hai stared, then he said, “Then Big Brother Mu, how did you find out that I have faith power?”

Mu Yu smiled faintly and said, “It’s because of your tribulation. One of the advantages of faith power is removing the obstacles in the way of its user. This means that those with faith power have no bottlenecks whatsoever. When the tribulation lightning went after you, it was blocked by faith power. Apart from faith power, there’s no other power that can do this.”

Zhao Hai smiled bitterly. He didn’t think that it was because of this. But he was helpless against it. When the tribulation lightning came down, he was prepared to resist it, he was just waiting to make a move. However, his faith power just flew out on its own and attacked the dark cloud. 

Mu Yu looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, where did you get faith power?”

Zhao Hai smiled bitterly and replied, “It’s a long story. I got it by accident. Back in the World of Cultivation, I belonged to the Machine Field. I had some scuffles with the Cultivation Realm and later on with the Devil Realm. At that time, I became enemies with someone named the Yin Wind Ghost Emperor. I killed his underling so he looked for me for revenge. In the end, he failed to kill me and was killed instead. That fellow had a lot of evil artifacts but one of them was an iron token. This iron token was actually an item that can collect faith power from a lower realm. Later on, when I turned him into an Undead, I asked him about faith power and learned a simple method to use it. That iron token wasn’t made with great materials, so I was only able to collect a little bit of faith power. I was impatient at that time that I threw it back into the lower realm. But I didn’t expect the iron token to actually disappear. In the end, I was only able to get a small amount. I didn’t expect it to be used today.”

Zhao Hai’s story was a mix of truth and lies. He truly obtained the iron token from the Yin Wind Ghost Emperor. Moreover, he really lost it in the Underworld. But now, the Underworld has been unified with the Space. Also, the Underworld wasn’t the only place he can get faith power from.

Mu Yu didn’t suspect Zhao Hai’s story. He was from the Hundred Treasures Realm so he was aware of items that held control over a lower realm. The attitude of the Hundred Treasures Realm towards this token was quite calm. Whoever gets these tokens would own it. Nobody would snatch it from them.

Mu Yu shook his head and said, “You’re really a lucky kid. With faith power, your future progress would be smoother. This is good. But Little Hai, you need to remember that faith power is only a tool to help your cultivation. In the end, your cultivation base is the most important. Right, what method did you use to control your faith power?”

 Zhao Hai told Mu Yu about the method he got from the Yin Wind Ghost Emperor. Mu Yu shook his head and said, “Your method is too primitive. Wait a while. I’ll write to Master so that he can help you find a better method. This way, you can use your faith power better.”

Zhao Hai nodded and thanked Mu Yu. To be honest, he didn’t expect Mu Yu to be calm upon hearing about his faith power. Moreover, it seems like he sees faith power as a supportive thing.

In Zhao Hai’s view, faith power was infinitely useful for cultivation. Take the Buddhist Techniques for example. Without faith power, one couldn’t practice them at all. How can this be just a supportive thing to Mu Yu? What’s this about?

What Zhao Hai didn’t know was that tokens that connected to lower realms were also rare in the Hundred Treasures Realm. It was very difficult to obtain faith power from lower realms. Lu Wei and the Yin Wind Ghost Emperor can’t go to the lower realms and perform miracles, so the people from the lower realms weren’t too connected to them. This caused their faith to be weak. Since this was the case, it was impossible for these token owners to realize the terrifying ability of faith power.

Although Zhao Hai didn’t understand what happened, he didn’t ask. He knew that the more he asked, the more he would reveal. Therefore, he’d rather not take the risk.

Mu Yu led Zhao Hai to the terrace of the pagoda. Tang Jie and the others were already waiting there. Mu Yu nodded and said, “Now that Little Hai has successfully entered the Transcending Tribulation Stage, we should think about our next action. We’ll march towards the Imperial Spirit Sect.”

Zhao Hai nodded, then he controlled the Hell King’s Ship to head towards the Imperial Spirit Sect. Once the Hell King’s Ship was on the way, Zhao Hai turned to Mu Yu and said, “Big Brother Mu what happened to the Immortal Expert that attacked me?”

Mu Yu smiled and said, “Just as the Immortal Expert attacked the third time, an Immortal Expert of the Hundred Treasures Realm blocked it. After that, they fought somewhere else. We don’t know where they fought, but we can only do what we can at this time.”

Actually, Zhao Hai knew about this, he just pretended to be clueless. Therefore,  as soon as he heard Mu Yu, he feigned a fearful expression as he replied, “If it weren’t for the Hundred Treasures Realm’s Immortal Expert, I would have been finished. I used the energy of my Undead to power the spirit snake needles in order to block the first two attacks. I really didn’t expect the Immortal Stage to be this powerful.”

The last sentence was what Zhao Hai really thought deep inside. He truly didn’t expect the Immortal Expert to be this powerful. There was even a trace of domain in this attack.

Zhao Hai knew about laws before, but after comprehending the Immortal Expert’s qi, he discovered that it wasn’t just a law, but instead a comprehension of domain. At that time, he transformed himself into a mountain. Domains could increase someone’s offensive power.

Before reaching Transcending Tribulation, Zhao Hai didn’t think that the stage would be useful for himself. This was because his current strength was already on par with Severed Soul Experts. 

But after going through his tribulation, Zhao Hai understood that the stage wasn’t so simple. It tempered one’s spiritual qi and removes impurities, making spiritual qi denser.

Because he practiced the Yin Yang Stellar Transformations Art, the density of Zhao Hai’s spiritual qi already far exceeded those on the same level. This was the reason why he can fight Severed Soul Experts while in the Nascent Soul Stage.

Zhao Hai thought that the tempering that was provided by the Transcending Tribulation Stage wouldn’t have any effect on him. Unexpectedly, although the tribulation lightning has been dissolved, its strength was absorbed by the faith power and added to Zhao Hai’s body. This immediately caused a transformation in Zhao Hai’s body. Needless to say, since Zhao Hai’s body was already formidable, there’s no longer any need to temper it.

Meanwhile, Zhao Hai’s spiritual qi was upgraded. Right now, Zhao Hai’s spiritual qi was 20 times denser than before. All of this was because the tribulation lightning has been absorbed by faith power.

When ordinary people undergo their tribulation, the tribulation lightning would become an aid to temper their spiritual qi. This type of tempering was very formidable, but also extremely painful. Because of this, plenty of people fail and perish during their tribulation.

Zhao Hai’s situation was different. His faith power absorbed the tribulation lightning and then brought it directly to Zhao Hai’s body, tempering it in the process. The power of the lightning has already been subdued by faith power, so it was no longer violent. This was the reason why Zhao Hai’s spiritual qi became 20 times denser.

Besides a more condensed spiritual qi, Zhao Hai’s qi also has the power of lightning. His offensive strength became even more powerful.

The power of the tribulation lightning was different from a domain. The lightning was an additive property to attacks. Because Zhao Hai’s faith power absorbed the tribulation lightning, he can now extract its power and use it. This kind of lightning was yang lightning, a complete opposite of yin lightning.

The moment the Space extracted the yang lightning, it immediately tried combining it with the yin lightning. Now, Zhao Hai’s Space has developed something called the lightning pool. This lightning pool looked like a yin-yang fish, but it spewed out lightning from time to time.

Once the lightning pool was created, the Space immediately gave a prompt informing Zhao Hai that the pools can be used to increase his combat power. The yin-yang pond in Zhao Hai’s Hell King’s Ship was now replaced by a lightning pond. Because it has formidable offensive strength, it was much better to use the lightning pond for the Hell King’s Ship.

      (south park kids) that bastard

      sorry couldn’t help my self since you asked for it with that name

  1. I still find it weird for the Buddhist techniques to require faith. Mainly because the original core concepts show a decisive lack of needing faith in anything. Only work in self control and reflection.

    1. To my understanding, this has to do with Chinese Mahayana Buddhism, which worships Buddhas and Bodhisattvas as gods, and believes that only they can save them from karma and desire and bring them to Buddhist heaven.
