Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-983
Bone Transforming City, a city not smaller than Tian Bei City. However,
it was quite far from Tian Bei City. It was barely outside of the Wind
Lightning Pavilion’s influence.
This city was controlled by a faction called the Bone Transforming Gate.
Although there were many other factions beneath it, all of them had
difficulty contending with the Bone Transforming Gate. Moreover, this
Bone Transforming Gate did things in a moderate manner. Although it would
occupy a lion’s share, it would not swallow all the profits that
existed. Hence, it had always been the overlord of the Bone Transforming
City during these years. There was seldom any factions who would stand up
and challenge them.
The chief of Bone Transforming Gate practiced a water affinity Qi Method
and was a little unusual. Hidden force would unknowingly enter his
opponent’s body before it would gently disperse. If one were to be
struck by this force, one’s bone would even show signs of weakening.
Hence, the Bone Transforming Gate was renowned even among the surrounding
This city was also the first place Xiao Yan had stopped to rest after
starting his crazy journey from Tian Bei City. During his journey, he
went in the deep mountains and hidden forests as he traveled in a single
direction. According to his guess, he should have already left the
territory of the Wind Lightning Pavilion. Moreover, he was unfamiliar
with this place and did not know the roads. Randomly flying around was
not a solution. Hence, he chose to obtain a map of the northern region
first. Thus, he would not end up flying around like a housefly without
Moreover, he needed to search for the medicinal ingredients that were
necessary to refine the Soul Cleansing Pill as well as to inquire about
The interior of the Bone Transforming City had mainly been decorated with
a pale-white color. At a glance, it seemed as though it was a city
completely built from bones. It caused one to feel a faint chill within
their hearts when they looked at it. However, the liveliness of the city
was not lessened as a result of chill. A noisiness that shot to the sky
could be clearly heard even from a great distance.
This was the first time Xiao Yan had entered a human city after having
traveled at a crazy pace for a couple of days. He involuntarily felt
somewhat unused to the noisiness that he felt. Immediately, he shook his
head and walked into the city.
A map of the northern region was not considered an overly rare item. Xiao
Yan did not spend much effort before finding a map shop, called Map
Court. He entered it, saw the many maps piled within and felt a little
absent-minded. When he had met Hai Bodong in the Jia Ma Empire for the
first time, he obtained the second map fragment of the Purifying Demonic
Lotus Flame from the map shop.
TL: The Purifying Demonic Lotus Flame has been called the Clean Lotus
Demon Flame earlier in the story
Xiao Yan helplessly sighed when he thought of the Purifying Demonic Lotus
Flame. Ever since he had obtained the third map fragment, he had not been
lucky enough to chance upon the fourth map fragment, causing him to feel
extremely regretful. The Purifying Demonic Lotus Flame was ranked third
on the ‘Heavenly Flame’ ranking. Even Yao Lao had only heard of its
name and had never seen its form. Hence, one could tell just how
mysterious and powerful this thing was. If Xiao Yan successfully
swallowed it, his strength would soar like crazy. Unfortunately…
Xiao Yan suppressed the sadness in his heart. He slowly walked into the
shop. There was an old man in the shop, but he was not some expert. His
face had the shrewdness that a merchant ought to have. Xiao Yan glanced
over him. The strength of this old man had just reached the Dou Shi’s
class. It seemed that his training talent was really insignificant.
“This young brother, are you planning to purchase a map?” That old
man hurriedly stood up and asked a question with a smile when he saw Xiao
“Give me the most precise map of the northern region you have.” Xiao
Yan nodded and made a request. His gaze slowly swept over the shop
carefully. A moment later, he withdrew his gaze with some disappointment.
He was foolishly hoping that the matter back then would occur once again.
“Hee hee, young brother, this is the map you requested. It is the most
detailed one created by my shop, and it is worth thirty thousand gold
coins.” The old man swiftly pulled out an extremely beautiful scroll
from a platform and handed it to Xiao Yan before speaking with a smile.
“Thirty thousand gold coins…” Xiao Yan involuntarily rolled his
eyes when he heard the price. This old fellow was really merciless when
it came to ripping someone off. Xiao Yan randomly opened the map and
studied it a little. After finding that it was indeed somewhat detailed,
Xiao Yan found he was too lazy to argue with the old man. He handed over
the gold coins required, turned around, and started to leave.
“Ke ke, young brother, please wait.” The old man suddenly cried out
when he saw Xiao Yan turning around to leave.
“What is it?” Xiao Yan frowned and demanded.
“Hee hee, young brother really looks quite foreign. You should not be a
person from the Bone Transforming City, right? Are you also here because
of the Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool in the Heaven Eye Mountain Range?”
The old man inquired as he smiled.
“Heaven Eye Mountain Range? Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool?” These two
names caused Xiao Yan to be startled. Not because they were foreign, but
because he had already heard these terms over a dozen times since he had
entered the city. However, he was not aware of the mysteries they
The old man was also startled when he saw Xiao Yan’s expression. He
asked in surprise, “Does young brother not even know about the Heaven
Eye Mountain Range and the Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool?”
“I only arrived in the northern region recently. Hence, I am not
familiar with everything around here. Can boss tell me about it?” Xiao
Yan randomly threw over a bag of gold coins. They landed on the counter
as he inquired with some interest. He was quite interested in the Heaven
Eye Mountain Range since it was a topic many people were talking about.
“The Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool in the Heaven Eye Mountain Range is
extremely famous. There are few people within the northern region of the
Central Plains who are not aware of it. It is rumored that every three
years a natural energy tide appears at the top of a volcano in the
mountain range. After the tide is over, the Heaven Mountain Lake within
the volcano is filled with a an extremely mysterious red liquid.
Moreover, this Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool only remains for five days.
After which, it completely disappears.” The old man smiled as took the
gold coins and spoke with a serious expression.
“What is the use of the blood pool?” Xiao Yan asked.
“It is rumored to be able to help some experts at the peak of the Dou
Huang class to breakthrough to the Dou Zong class. Moreover, even if a
Dou Zong expert enters the pool, it will wash through and reinforce
one’s body, allowing one’s strength to increase. In any case, the
effect of the blood pool is extremely mysterious. Every three years, the
Heaven Eye Mountain Range fills with a countless number of people from
the northern region of the Central Plains as well as other places.
Moreover, next month is coincidentally the time when the three years is
up. Hence, there have been many people hurrying to the Heaven Eye
Mountain Range recently. Hee hee. However, the Heaven Eye Mountain Range
is extremely vast. There are many high rank Magical Beasts within it. The
mountain peak is also covered by a fog all year around. Hence, if young
brother wishes to head there, you can purchase a map of the Heaven Eye
Mountain Range from the old me. It only costs forty thousand gold coins.
With the help of the map, you will be able to reach the mountaintop
before everyone else.” The old man laughed. He explained the situation
before finally revealing his cunning intent.
Xiao Yan felt like was not able to laugh nor cry when he heard this. This
old fellow had explained so much because he was promoting his map of the
Heaven Eye Mountain Range. However, if Xiao Yan was being honest, the
Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool was tempting. No wonder it was able to cause
all the people in the city to talk about it with great interest.
Moreover, Xiao Yan was coincidentally a nine star Dou Huang. He was not
far from the Dou Zong class. However, if he were to rely on normal
training, it would definitely take a long time for him to breakthrough.
Yet, Xiao Yan might not have much time to grow…
Even if he forget about there being a little over a year left until the
Pill Gathering, he still needed to help Tian Huo zun-zhe refine a body.
According to what Yao Lao had mentioned back then, there were three
requirements to refine a body. One was the Bone Growing Blood Fusing
Pill, two was the essence blood of a rank 7 Magical Beast, and three was
the skeleton of an elite Dou Zong. With Xiao Yan’s current strength, it
was not difficult to obtain the last two. However, the Bone Growing Blood
Fusing Pill was a medicinal pill that belonged to the peak of the seventh
tier. With Xiao Yan’s current medicinal refining ability, it was
impossible for him to refine it. Unless he reached the Dou Zong class,
his success rate would likely be too low.
“Young brother, the old me is doing this for your own good. The effects
of the Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool might be mysterious, but it can, at
the very most, be used by ten people. In other words, if you arrive at
the Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool after those ten people, you can only
look at the empty blood pool and wait another three years…” The old
man hurriedly added when he saw that Xiao Yan did not declare his
“Oh?” Xiao Yan was also startled when he heard these words.
Immediately, he nodded with a smile. If this was really the case, he
should really make a move ahead of schedule. The effects of the Heavenly
Mountain Blood Pool were mysterious. There would definitely be many
experts attracted by it. If he were to arrive too late, he might really
have to wait another three years.
The old man immediately rejoiced when he saw Xiao Yan nodding his head.
He joyfully took out a map and muttered in his heart with a grin. “I
have ripped off another wealthy person. How many has there been today?”
Xiao Yan was naturally unaware of the old man’s inner thoughts.
Moreover, even if he knew about them, he would be too lazy to find fault
with the other party. This map might not be worth so much money, but in
his opinion, the situation regarding the Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool was
worth far more than money.
Xiao Yan randomly paid the gold coins and put the map into his Storage
Ring. After which, he walked out of the shop in front of the old man’s
After having exited the shop, Xiao Yan made a trip around some medicinal
shops. It was not a futile one. At the very least, he had managed to
obtain the Water Spirit Lotus Seed that he needed to refine the Soul
Cleansing Pill. Although it was quite expensive, it was naturally nothing
to remiss for someone like Xiao Yan, who was in a hurry to remove the
remnant spiritual imprint in his body.
After roaming once around the Bone Transforming City and inquiring about
more information, Xiao Yan had a much greater understanding of the
so-called Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool. That old man had not deceived
him. A month later, the Heavenly Mountain Blood Pool would appear again.
Moreover, there were currently a countless number of people from the
northern region hurrying to the Heaven Eye Mountain Range.
Xiao Yan stopped in front of an inn in the city. He looked at the many
people on the street. There were many people present here whose target
was the Heaven Eye Mountain Range.
“I will get moving and head to the Heaven Eye Mountain Range tomorrow
after resting for the night here. If I am able to be the first ten to
enter the Heaven Mountain Blood Pool, there is a chance that it might
help me breakthrough to the Dou Zong class…”
Xiao Yan’s heart became boiling hot when he thought of the possibility
of him breaking through. This Central Plains was really worthy of being
in the middle of the Dou Qi continent. Such a mysterious matter would
seldom occur in other places. However, it had appeared here. Xiao Yan
naturally did not intend to give it up…
