Library of Heaven's Path - chapter-1415
both sides were completely filled with stone tablets. Taking a closer
look, one could feel a few silhouettes moving on the surface of the
tablets, seemingly practicing some sort of profound martial arts.
The movements of these silhouettes were extremely slow, and for some
reason, it seemed as if they were cloaked with a layer of thin mist. Even
if one were to examine the tablet closely, it would still be hard to
perceive their movements distinctly.
However, Zhang Xuan didn’t need to perceive their movements to learn what
they were cultivating. All he really had to do was to direct a glance
over at the stone tablets while muttering ‘flaws!’ in his mind.
Illusory Arcane Dragon Art, True Inferno Yang Formula, Xuanmin Ancestral
Impact, Water Undulation Divine Art…
Books swiftly materialized in Zhang Xuan’s mind.
There weren’t just Grand Dominion realm cultivation technique manuals on
the stone tablets; some were Phantasmal Space realm cultivation technique
manuals as well. If one were to cultivate according to them, there was no
doubt that one’s cultivation would surely improve by leaps and bounds,
granting one fighting prowess far exceeding that of their peers.
Those who were qualified to enter the Inner Sanctum were all geniuses,
and those who were qualified to leave behind these cultivation technique
manuals were, even more so, geniuses amongst geniuses, individuals who
had stood at the top of their generation… Zhang Xuan thought as he
slowly proceeded forward.
Through taking in the cultivation technique manuals into his Library of
Heaven’s Path, he was able to swiftly convert it into his own knowledge,
thus allowing him to analyze the pros and cons of each cultivation
While these cultivation techniques were far from matching up to top
cultivation techniques like the Heavenly Art of Dimension Unravel, to
most 8-star master teachers, they could still be considered as invaluable
If any single one of them were to be taken out to the Master Teacher
Continent, it would surely induce a massive fight over it as countless
cultivators vied to lay their hands on it!
course, this could bring in the question of why the Inner Sanctum didn’t
open up the books to the public. The Sanctum of Sages did allow those
whose main occupations were not master teacher to pick up a cultivation
technique from the Cultivation Technique Forest as well so long as their
main occupation had reached 8-star and they were qualified to enter the
Inner Sanctum. Nevertheless, this didn’t change the fact that it still
wasn’t accessible to most cultivators outside.
The reason for that was that the stronger a cultivation technique was,
the more demanding it was on one’s talent. If one simply didn’t have the
aptitude for the cultivation technique but still forcefully attempted to
cultivate it, not only would one’s cultivation not improve as swiftly as
expected, more importantly. It could potentially leave major traumas on
one’s body, resulting in unpredictable consequences.
It was the same reason as why each occupation would only allow their
members to view books corresponding to their current rank and below, and
not those that were above their current rank. Without building up the
necessary fundamental knowledge first, attempting to learn advanced
content would, more likely than not, confuse one and possibly distort
one’s comprehension of the occupation.
There was an inherent tendency within humans to overestimate their
abilities, so in order to prevent such tragedies from occurring, there
was a need to regulate the flow of information and knowledge so as to
ensure that they would only reach appropriate hands.
While others are spending numerous hours in here just to receive the
recognition of one predecessor and obtaining his cultivation technique, I
am already collecting nearly every single one of the cultivation
techniques… Zhang Xuan thought gleefully.
There was a diverse range of cultivation techniques here, and most of the
stone tablets here were infused with the will of the creator of the
cultivation technique too. Even if Zhan shi were here, he wouldn’t be
able to learn all of the cultivation techniques either.
However, Zhang Xuan was different. Wherever his eye could reach, those
stone tablets within his range of sight would be automatically compiled
into a book within his Library of Heaven’s Path, and even their
corresponding flaws would become apparent to him. As such, he was able to
learn the cultivation techniques even without receiving the recognition
from their respective creators.
Slowly walking forward, Zhang Xuan relentlessly took in all of the
cultivation techniques inscribed on the stone tablets around him.
Over several dozen millenniums, the Cultivation Technique Forest had
accumulated more than a thousand cultivation techniques, so it took quite
a while before Zhang Xuan finally reached the end.
Compile! Zhang Xuan willed.
experienceCountless books quickly gathered together within the Library of
Heaven’s Path, fusing together to form the Grand Dominion realm and
Phantasmal Space realm Heaven’s Path Divine Art.
Swiftly flipping open the two books before him to take a look, Zhang Xuan
couldn’t help but shake his head in slight disappointment.
Just like what he had guessed, the Grand Dominion realm Heaven’s Path
Divine Art had been fully perfected, devoid of any flaws, but the
Phantasmal Space realm cultivation technique still had quite a few
mistakes here and there. Clearly, he hadn’t collected sufficient
Phantasmal Space realm cultivation technique manuals yet.
“How could Zhang shi… not receive the recognition of even a single
predecessor at all?” Seeing that Zhang Xuan had walked out of the
Cultivation Technique Forest without inducing the slightest bit of
response from the stone tablets, Zhan shi frowned in bewilderment.
Be it in terms of talent or fighting prowess, the young man before him
had already reached an astounding level. Why would he receive no
recognition from the predecessors of the Cultivation Technique Forest at
“I haven’t been driving my cultivation technique,” Zhang Xuan replied
with a smile.
His goal was just to collect the cultivation technique manuals in the
Cultivation Technique Forest, so he chose not to drive his cultivation
technique. As a result of that, he hadn’t received the recognition of any
of the predecessors either.
Besides, the cultivation technique he practiced was the Heaven’s Path
Divine Art! Which predecessor’s eyesight would be so bad as to dare to
“You have to drive your cultivation technique while walking through the
Cultivation Technique Forest in order to receive the recognition of the
predecessors so that you can obtain their secret manuals! To simply walk
through it just like that… You won’t be able to obtain anything like
that!” Zhan shi exclaimed anxiously.
“It’s fine, I have already obtained what I wanted. May I ask if there’s
any silent chamber here where I can cultivate in? I would like to digest
what I have just learned. I think I might be able to make a breakthrough
in my cultivation.” Knowing that it would be difficult for him to explain
the matter to Zhan shi in a way that was acceptable to the latter, Zhang
Xuan didn’t bother delving too deeply into the matter either.
a silent chamber right there. A Spiritual Gathering Formation has been
inscribed in it; it can help you gather the surrounding spiritual
energy.” Zhan shi said as he pointed toward a specific direction.
Since the Cultivation Technique Forest was a place for cultivators to
pick up a cultivation technique and learn, the Inner Sanctum had also
provided some silent chambers nearby for cultivators who suddenly had a
sudden stroke of inspiration to sit down and ponder over it.
Zhang Xuan directed a nod at Zhan shi before walking over to the silent
chamber. He pushed on its entrance lightly and walked in.
Perhaps it was due to the presence of the Spirit Gathering Formation, the
spiritual energy was even more concentrated than outside. At the same
time, the silent chamber seemed to be made of some kind of unique
material that completely isolated the space within from the external
world, keeping all noises and even Spiritual Perception at bay, thus
ensuring absolute silence to the cultivator inside.
Nevertheless, Zhang Xuan still swiftly took a look around the chamber,
and only after ensuring that it was absolutely safe did he finally heave
a sigh of relief. He flicked his wrist and took out the pinnacle spirit
stones which Sun Qiang and Zhang Chun had given to him.
As his cultivation rose, the spiritual energy requirement of his Heaven’s
Path Divine Art had been steadily increasing too. Nevertheless, with ten
pinnacle spirit stones on hand, it shouldn’t be too difficult for him to
push for a breakthrough straight for Grand Dominion realm pinnacle.
Grabbing the spirit stones tightly in his hand, he quickly went through
the Grand Dominion realm Heaven’s Path Divine Art once more as he
conditioned his physical condition to his peak before finally starting
As if a lifted dam, spiritual energy swiftly gushed through the meridians
in his body, and they were swiftly converted into Heaven’s Path zhenqi,
nourishing his entire body.
didn’t take too long for him to bash through his Half-Grand Dominion
realm bottleneck, and his one-meter radius Dominion immediately began
expanding, till the point that it covered a radius of ten meters around
Not only so, his Dominion was clearly much denser and heavier than that
of ordinary Grand Dominion realm cultivators. Those who had unfortunately
fallen into his Dominion would be completely frozen on the spot as if
they had been shackled by heavy chains.
Even though its radius was only at ten meters, in terms of prowess, it
was on par with even Grand Dominion realm pinnacle experts.
Expecting at least this much from the Heaven’s Path Divine Art, Zhang
Xuan wasn’t surprised in the least. With a slight smile, he continued his
cultivation. Under the drive of his zhenqi, his cultivation swiftly rose,
becoming stronger and stronger.
Grand Dominion realm primary stage!
Grand Dominion realm intermediate stage!
Grand Dominion realm advanced stage!
Grand Dominion realm pinnacle!
In just four hours, his cultivation had already reached Saint 6-dan
pinnacle, just a step away from achieving a breakthrough to Saint 7-dan
Phantasmal Space realm.
breakthough in his cultivation, his Dominion had grown larger enough to
cover a radius of fifty meters, more than twofold larger than that of the
twenty meters radius of an average Grand Dominion realm pinnacle
Not only so, he also realized that the Dominion he created was an
isolated space from the rest of the world. Any external Spiritual
Perception that attempted to delve into his Dominion would be completely
severed, as if falling into a folded space… From this phenomenon in
itself, he could tell that his Dominion was already nowhere weaker than
that of Saint 7-dan cultivators.
With my current strength, I should be able to subdue even Zhang Chun
easily… Zhang Xuan thought with a smile.
With his cultivation reaching Grand Dominion realm pinnacle, the
Phantasmal Space realm Zhang Chun was no longer a match for him anymore.
He didn’t have to take a passive stance anymore.
But again, Zhang Chun probably hadn’t recovered from being pummeled by
his clone yet, and at the same time, Luo Xuanqing was also eyeing him
tightly. Even if he didn’t make a move, Zhang Chun probably didn’t have
any good days ahead of him anymore.
The spiritual energy harnessed within pinnacle spirit stones sure is
immense! It took me only eight of them to up my cultivation by an entire
It was no wonder why Luo Xuanqing, Zhang Chun, and the others were able
to achieve breakthroughs so quickly, reaching such high cultivation
realms at their young age. With such resources to support their growth,
it would be hard for them to not to grow so swiftly!
While Zhang Xuan was busy raising his cultivation, Zhan shi was pacing
outside the silent chamber with a tight knit between his eyebrows.
Whenever other students entered the Cultivation Technique Forest, they
would drive their cultivation techniques as powerfully as they could,
hoping to gain the recognition of as many predecessors as possible. Yet,
that fellow simply took a walk through it before heading straight for the
be that none of the cultivation techniques in the Cultivation Technique
Forest caught his interest?
But that shouldn’t be. Those are all Saint high-tier and Saint pinnacle
cultivation techniques! It’s more likely that he had driven his
cultivation technique but failed to obtain the recognition of any of the
predecessors… With such doubts in mind, Zhan shi turned his sights to
the stone tablets by the side.
With just a single look, he suddenly froze on the spot.
The silhouette moving on the stone tablet had all stopped displaying
their cultivation techniques. As if they were faced with something deeply
frightening, they were shivering at the corner of the stone tablet, not
daring to move or make any noise at all.
Suppression of Cultivation Technique, Inborn Deference of the Heart…
This is the cultivation technique of an Ancient Sage? Could it be that…
Zhang shi is the direct disciple of an Ancient Sage?
Zhan shi narrowed his eyes in astonishment as he clenched his fists
