Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-541
In the azure sky above the vast mountains, a somewhat coarse energy glow
shot into the clouds and did not disappear for a long while.
Yao Lao slowly sat up from the ground. He glanced at the enormous light
pillar and frowned slightly. With a beckon of his extended hand, the
light pillar immediately trembled. Finally, a thread of blue-colored glow
rushed down before being suspended above his hand.
The blue-colored glow gradually diminished. Immediately, it revealed its
actual body. It was actually an azure medicinal pill that was the size of
a dragon’s eye. The surface of the medicinal pill was extremely round
and sleek, much like the surface of a sea. The blue lines that faintly
remained on it were like numerous waves, appearing extremely mysterious.
Following this thread of blue-colored glow escaping from the light
pillar, the enormous light pillar appeared to have lost the support of
its energy. It shook slightly before it gradually became illusionary and
eventually disappeared altogether.
Xiao Yan only heaved a sigh of relief after eyeing the enormous light
pillar completely disappear from the sky. If this activity were to
continue, it was likely that the Elders in the Inner Academy would rush
over after being alerted. Xiao Yan flapped his wings and slowly landed on
the peak of the mountain. He curiously eyed the blue-colored medicinal
pill above Yao Lao’s hand as he said, “This is the ‘Ground Spirit
Yao Lao smiled and nodded. There appeared to be a little tiredness on his
face. It appeared that refining a tier 6 medicinal pill as a spiritual
body was still quite a burden to him.
Xiao Yan’s eyes did not miss the tiredness of Yao Lao’s face. He
said, “Teacher, you should return to the ring to rest now that the pill
has already been refined.”
“Alas, this spiritual body does indeed have difficulty unleashing all
my strength. When did refining a tier 6 medicinal pill require so much
time in the past? Now, not only does the process take a long time, but it
is also extremely exhausting on my energy.” Yao Lao shook his head and
“Teacher, you can rest assured. Once I obtain the ‘Fallen Heart
Flame’, I will begin to try and refine a body that can accommodate your
spirit. At that time, you can once again be revived should I succeed in
my refinement.” Xiao Yan comforted with a smile.
“I am not really anxious about the matter of my revival, having already
waited for so many years.” Yao Lao smiled. However, one could see the
smile on his face when he spoke these words. It revealed he still felt a
little pleased from the words Xiao Yan spoke.
Xiao Yan laughed. He extended his hand and grabbed toward the medicinal
pill that was suspended above Yao Lao’s palm. His hand had just grabbed
it when that ‘Ground Spirit Pill’ transformed into a blue glow and
shot away. Finally, it lingered beside Yao Lao, appearing to have a
spirit of its own.
Xiao Yan was startled as he eyed the ‘Ground Spirit Pill’ that
actually dodged his palm. He said in a stunned voice, “Don’t tell me
that all tier 6 medicinal pills possess some level of intelligence? It
actually even knows how to dodge?”
“Not all of them. A medicinal pill of this tier does indeed possess
some intelligence. However, it is merely the kind that gives it an
extremely vague sense. An ordinary tier 6 medicinal pill would usually
not possess such intelligence. However, this ‘Ground Spirit Pill’
could be considered among the top within the tier 6 medicinal pills. This
is especially after being catalyzed with my ‘Bone Chilling Flame’. It
naturally has a richer intelligence when compared to the other medicinal
pills of the same tier.” Yao Lao smiled and explained. He immediately
waved his hand and the ‘Ground Spirit Pill’ that was suspended by his
side automatically flew into his hand. He took out a jade bottle and
stuffed it in before tossing it to Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan carefully received the jade bottle. He eyed the ‘Ground Spirit
Pill’ that was suspended within the jade bottle and smacked his mouth
in surprise. He said, “A tier 6 medicinal pill already has such
intelligence. Won’t even higher tier medicinal pills be able to speak a
human language?” A few drops of perspiration involuntarily flowed down
from Xiao Yan’s forehead when he thought of a medicinal pill being able
to chat with a person.
“Ke ke, a tier 7 medicinal pill does indeed have greater intelligence.
Some of the medicinal pills might even automatically fly away after
coming out of the cauldron if one is not careful, causing an alchemist
exhausted from refining it to be stunned. A tier 8 medicinal pill can
even fight with a human, do you think that is mysterious?” Yao Lao
laughed out loud.
Xiao Yan was speechless. A medicinal pill that can fight with a person?
This… tier eight medicinal pills were actually this overwhelmingly
“A tier 8 medicinal pill is already this strong. What about tier 9 and
tier 10? Won’t they oppose the heavens?” Xiao Yan laughed bitterly.
“It is rumored that there are some tier nine medicinal pills can even
take a human form.” Yao Lao’s first sentence caused Xiao Yan’s head
to spin around. It was becoming more and more ridiculous. A medicinal
pill that can even turn into a human?
“Jiu jiu is the most honored. Above it is not called tier 10. Instead,
it is the completely unique ‘God Tier’. A medicinal pill of this tier
has never appeared ever since the ancient times. I have once read some
ancient books. The meaning of the vague description on it seems to imply
that this ‘God Tier’ medicinal pill faintly had some relationship
with the rank of Dou Di, the level that merely exists in legend.” Yao
Lao laughed. His final sentence was suppressed until it was very soft,
seemingly afraid that someone else would hear it.
TL: jiu jiu – ‘nine nine’ – alternatively, it can sound like ‘long
long’ meaning forever, which is a number held in high regard
TL: God tier (Di tier) – the Di comes from the rank Dou Di (strongest
rank). which means god. It should be noted that the rank Di is usually
the ultimate level in BTTH
Xiao Yan wiped his cold sweat. This ‘God Tier’ is actually so
frightening? Don’t tell me that one requires this kind of ‘God
Tier’ medicinal pill to breakthrough to a Dou Di?
“No one has been able to refine a ‘God Tier’ medicinal pill in a
thousand years. The first reason is that there is a lack of a medicinal
formula. A medicinal formula of this tier basically has an innate
difference compared to the medicinal formula that we use. We are refining
an elixir between the heaven and the earth. The ‘God Tier’ medicinal
pill refines the heavens and earth, the mountains and the sea.” Yao
Lao’s faint voice gave Xiao Yan a great shock. Refining the heavens and
earth into pills? Was this not a little too frightening?
“The second reason is that no one possesses that kind of strength.”
Yao Lao smiled before adding, “Even if I were to recover to my peak, I
am also unable to reach that extent.”
Xiao Yan nodded quietly as he inhaled a deep breath of air. He did not
expect that the journey of refining pills actually still possessed such a
tactic that went against the heavens. This really caused him to be
“Alright, there is not much use for you to know about these now. You
will naturally know all that you should need to know when you reach that
level in the future.” Yao Lao waved his hand and stored the ‘Black
Demon’ medicinal cauldron on the ground into the dark-black ring. After
which, the ring shook and was placed on Xiao Yan’s finger with
extremely great accuracy.
Xiao Yan nodded slightly and smiled as he said, “Since the ‘Ground
Spirit Pill’ has been successfully refined, shall we first return to
the Inner Academy?”
Yao Lao randomly nodded. His body was just about to enter the dark-black
ring when his expression changed slightly. He suddenly turned his head
around and eyed somewhere far away within the mountain range.
“Teacher, what is it?” Yao Lao’s action also caused Xiao Yan to
become slightly anxious as he hurriedly asked.
“You should hide first. Someone is coming. Moreover, the strength of
the person who is coming is very strong! I think that he must have been
attracted by the activity when the ‘Ground Spirit Pill’ was formed
earlier.” Yao Lao said in a slightly deep voice. He pondered a little
before his figure turned into a light barrier that covered Xiao Yan’s
body. A soft voice sounded beside Xiao Yan’s ears, “Go and hide
quickly. With your strength you will definitely be unable to escape his
search. Therefore, I can only use Spiritual Strength to wrap around you.
Xiao Yan was also able to sense the great strength of the person who was
rushing over upon hearing the anxiety in Yao Lao’s voice. He flapped
his Purple Cloud Wings and searched quickly around him. Immediately, his
body charged into a large mountain peak. Finally, his body completely
disappeared within the lush greenery.
Xiao Yan’s body entered the lush green forest and hid in a covert area.
His gaze passed through the gaps between the tree branches and eyed the
Not long after Xiao Yan completely hid his body, a slight rushing wind
sound suddenly appeared. A blurry, black shadow suddenly appeared in the
distant sky. The instant his body paused, Xiao Yan could vaguely sense an
extremely large invisible ripple spread over. Finally, it wrapped around
all the nearby mountain peaks.
This invisible ripple was just like a radar. It repeatedly scanned the
place up and down. However, it was fortunate that Xiao Yan was wrapped by
Yao Lao’s Spiritual Strength. Therefore, he was not discovered.
The scanning came to a stop after it continued for a while on the ground.
The black figure paused. When it next appeared, it appeared on the small
mountain peak that Yao Lao had refined the medicinal pill on.
“What frightening speed.” Xiao Yan’s heart felt shocked at the
speed that the black shadow displayed. His gaze was extremely obscured as
it passed through the tree branches and quietly swept over the latter.
However, he was only able to identify that the other party was an old man
who had white-colored hair.
“This person should be someone from the Inner Academy. However, his
strength is much stronger than that of those Elders. If my thinking is
correct, this should be the First Elder with the greatest prestige within
the Inner Academy.” Xiao Yan quietly guessed and muttered in his heart.
“May I know which friend is refining medicinal pills in my Inner
Academy and where you come from? If it is possible, can you come out to
meet me?” The gaze of the black-robed old man looked all around him as
his body landed on the top of a mountain. Looking at his calm turbid
eyes, one could faintly see a flicker that was just like lightning.
A sound that was doped with powerful Dou Qi repeatedly reverberated in
this area. It was mighty and did not rest even after a long while.
Xiao Yan would naturally not do as he asked and appear. His body was like
a corpse as he lay within the thicket without making the slightest
movement. His heartbeat was also suppressed to its lowest point. Adding
the cover of Yao Lao’s spirit, he believed that no matter how strong
the black-robed old man was, he should not be able to sense Xiao Yan’s
The mighty sound reverberated through the air. A long time later, it
completely disappeared. However, the surroundings were still as quiet as
they were before. This caused the black-robed old man to involuntarily
“Don’t tell me that he has already left?” The black-robed old man
sighed gently. He could only once again leap his body and leave. After a
couple of flashes, he quietly disappeared into the horizon.
Xiao Yan only let out a gentle relieved sigh when he saw the black-robed
old man quietly disappearing. His body had just moved when Yao Lao’s
deep voice sounded beside his ear, “Don’t move!”
Xiao Yan’s body, which had just twisted a little, once again stilled.
He pulled at the corner of his mouth and could only maintain this
posture. This continued for nearly half an hour. Just when he was about
to reach the limit of his endurance, his eyes that were looking toward a
mountain peak in the distance suddenly shrunk.
He could see a slight breeze suddenly blow past the mountain peak, which
was originally devoid of anyone. A black-robed human figure slowly
appeared within Xiao Yan’s sight just like a ghost.
Xiao Yan eyed the human figure who had clearly gone far away, but had
once again strangely appeared. Cold sweat instantly covered his forehead.
This old fellow… was really cunning. If he did not have Yao Lao’s
reminder earlier, it was likely that he would be caught red-handed the
moment he appeared. This did not appear to be the first time he had met
something like this.
The black-robed old man who had once again appeared looked all around
him. At this moment, he was finally certain that the person who had
refined medicinal pill here had already gone far away. He let out a sigh.
With a shake of his figure, he once again disappeared from the original
This time around, Xiao Yan finally completely relaxed his tense mind
following the disappearance of the black-robed human figure. His body
weakly lay on the tree branch, appearing to have lost all his strength as
he allowed the cold sweat to drench his clothes.
