Needless to say Hongtian Academy, even those top sects might not even
have god or saint cultivation technique. Besides, even they have it, it
is hidden deep inside the sect and normal people would be unable to
What he wants to do is to create such a skill so that his training would
be more efficient so as to hasten the rate of the rise of his cultivation
by leaps and bounds!
“I don’t have any 4-dan cultivation method. Let me go to the Teacher
Compendium Pavilion to take a look!”
Practicing the Hongtian Nine Dan Formula, the cultivator can only
retrieve the secret manual for the next realm after breaking through
their current realm. At this moment, he only has the cultivation method
for 3-dan. He has yet to see the one for 4-dan.
Walking out, the sun hasn’t set for too long and there are still quite
a few passers-by on the road.
The bright moonlight reflects on the surface of the pavement, dying it
with a layer of silver. A few couples who had just tasted the forbidden
fruit are snuggling under the tree as they whisper sweet nothings to one
another. Even so, the surroundings have a serene atmosphere.
Zhang Xuan didn’t bother himself with these. Instead, he hastens his
footsteps and soon, a giant pavilion appears before him.
The Compendium Pavilion is split into two main sectors, teacher and
student. Within it lies the compendium of all kinds of secret manuals and
cultivation techniques. It is one of the most important locations in the
Walking to the entrance, he bows to an elderly who is sitting at a
proximity from the great door.
Elder Mo is one of the guardians of the Compendium Pavilion. It is
unknown what realm he has reached but it is said that he is ranked among
the top in the academy in terms of his strength. However, as he hasn’t
fought for many years, no one could tell his actual strength for sure.
“You’re here! You have reached Fighter 4-dan?”
Elder Mo looks over and strokes his sparse beard.
“It is just luck!” Zhang Xuan doesn’t try to conceal the fact that
he has reached Fighter 4-dan.
“Good, good. Train harder, the academy still needs young blood like
you!” Elder Mo nods his head in satisfaction.
“Yes!” Zhang Xuan doesn’t continue speaking and instead, lifts his
leg to walk into the room.
The moment he leaves, Elder Mo shakes his head and laments, “He is a
good child, just that he is lacking a little in talent and is slightly
too slow in his cultivation!”
Other cultivators take around two years to break through Fighter 3-dan
whereas Zhang Xuan took a whole three years to do so. His talent is
“Upon reaching Fighter 4-dan, if he were to train properly, he should
still be able to become an average teacher. Just that, I hope he
doesn’t score too badly for him Teacher Qualification Examination the
After muttering for a bit, Elder Mo doesn’t go on any further and shuts
his eyes once more.
Zhang Xuan is one of the more polite ones among the numerous young
teachers. He doesn’t really like him, but neither does he dislike him.
It is just that he finds it lamentable for him to be lacking in talent.
Oblivious to the mutterings of Elder Mo, Zhang Xuan walks into the
Although the Hongtian Academy’s Compendium Pavilion is of significant
size, nowhere paling in comparison to the working location of his
previous life, it is still much smaller than the Library of Heaven’s
Path in his mind.
The two aren’t even on the same level.
He walks quickly to the cultivation technique section and to the fourth
row of it.
Indeed, the Hongtian Nine Dan Formula 4-dan cultivation technique is in
Reaching out to grab it, he casually flips through it.
A similar secret manual appears in his mind. Taking a look, it is around
the same as the one for 3-dan, there are more than a thousand flaws.
“There are other secret manuals here as well. Let me take a look at
them as well!”
After the prior experience with breaking through, Zhang Xuan doesn’t
focus on the flaws in it and instead looks towards the bookshelf before
On the bookshelf of the fourth row, there is an amazing amount of
different kinds of cultivation technique manuals. They are all
cultivation techniques for 4-dan and there is quite are plenty of notes
and explanations in them left behind by predecessors. Just by a rough
look, there are around a few thousand of them.
If it is someone else, their eyes would definitely blur from the sight.
After all, there are so many books with countless notes left in them.
Furthermore, some of the theories for the cultivation techniques are at
ends with each other, so it is hard to gauge whether which one is the
right one. If one were to randomly cultivate without knowing better, it
is possible for them to go berserk.
However, Zhang Xuan is different. Possessing the Library of Heaven’s
Path, he is capable of telling which one is the right one. He doesn’t
hesitate to grab a book and flip through it.
A similar book appears in his mind.
Zhang Xuan doesn’t stop and picks up the next one.
He isn’t browsing through them nor picking them. Rather, he is trying
to increase the number of books in the Library of Heaven’s Path so that
he could derive a more precise cultivation method.
The sound of flipping pages fills the entire room.
“A weak will. Impatient and unrealistic!”
Hearing those words, Elder Mo frowns.
Since Zhang Xuan has already chosen to cultivate in the Hongtian Nine Dan
Formula, then he shouldn’t think about any other skills. He should make
use of the time to copy the formula for the 4-dan so that he can analyze
it and start training. Although it is possible to make use the strengths
of others to make up for the flaws of one, the more miscellaneous
knowledge one reads, the easier it is for one to get impatient and rash.
In the end, it is a small thing if he achieves nothing in the end. If
things go wrong, it is very possible for him to go berserk and ruin his
Thirty years ago, a talented genius blessed with great talents who
thought he is much greater than others insisted on looking through the
various cultivation techniques to create an ultimate one tailored to him.
In the end, due to reading too many manuals, he became uncertain of the
route he should walk on and his cultivation went berserk. As an
individual, he became insane as well.
Being greedy would cause indigestion!
This is the absolute truth and reality.
For him to take three years to break through Zhenqi realm, his talent is
apparent. With such talent, he should just obediently cultivate 4-dan of
Hongtian Nine Dan Formula. Yet, he chooses to flip through other manuals.
Is he just trying to seek for something thrilling?
With one look, one could tell he is an unrealistic fellow!
The good impression that he holds towards Zhang Xuan disappears without a
“Putting on a show just to obtain the fleeting praises of the crowd!”
After a cold harrumph, he realizes that Zhang Xuan is just casually
flipping through without taking a careful look at them. Elder Mo’s
eyebrows knit even closer together and he feels a little disgusted with
If one were to study those manual closer, even though they are being
unrealistic, they would still obtain some knowledge on them. However,
this fellow simply casually flips through it and given the speed he flips
at, even Elder Mo himself is unable to look through the contents
properly. If so, what can a lad who had just reached Fighter 4-dan see?
Now, he is truly putting on a show to obtain the fleeting praises of the
“The academy’s culture is really degenerating, getting worse with
each passing generation!”
After those words, he shuts his eyes, refusing to bother with this
unrealistic fellow anymore.
His pace of browsing is extremely fast. He is able to finish flipping
through a normal manual in just one or two breaths. In two hour, he
finished browsing through all of the cultivation manuals and thousands of
identical books had appeared in the Library of Heaven’s Path.
“Time to return to assess them!”
Knowing that his aim has been achieved, he smiles and walks towards the
outside without hesitation.
“You aren’t going to copy any notes?”
Seeing him leaving empty-handed, Elder Mo couldn’t resist asking.
Even if he is unrealistic, he should at least copy the secret manual so
that he can analyze it after returning to his living quarters. Coming and
leaving empty-handed, are you coming here to play?
“It’s okay, I am actually just taking a casual look…”
Unsure about what the other party is thinking about, Zhang Xuan smiles
and takes his leave.
“Taking a casual look? Frivolous! The academy should punish this
fellow! How can such a frivolous person be a teacher!” Elder Mo waves
his hand in anger.
Cultivation manuals are the core of every cultivator and every cultivator
should hold some respect towards them. However, this fellow only came to
take a look and returns back after casually flipping through them. His
behavior is unacceptable!
Looks like he should have a talk with the principal to deal with these
teachers who are sullying the culture of the academy.
Returning back to his living quarters, Zhang Xuan takes out pen and
papers and flips through the Hongtian Nine Dan Formula 4-dan manual to
copy down the correct portions of it.
Then, he takes out another book and copies down the correct portions as
After flipping through a few of them, Zhang Xuan rubs his temples.
It is actually quite troublesome and tiring to flip through a few
thousand books like that. It isn’t as simple as he thought it would be.
Just when he is thinking about how he could hasten his pace, his mind
suddenly jolts again.
The thousands of book that was just compiled in the Library of Heaven’s
Path crumple and slowly merge as one.
The few thousand books merge together completely with a crisp sound to
form a single book.
There isn’t any name on the book. Zhang Xuan casually flips through it.
“This… is the compilation of the correct routes in the few thousand
After taking a look at it, Zhang Xuan’s face flushes red from
Previously, he was still troubled by how he could find the correct route
out of a few thousand of books. It would have been an arduous task taking
a long period of time. Never in his dreams would he expect that the
library would compile it automatically!
“This book… there isn’t a single flaw in it!”
The nameless book is the compilation of all of the correct cultivation
route and there isn’t a single flaw in it.
The contents of it is no longer Hongtian Nine Dan Formula or any one of
the individual manual that was compiled into it. It could be said to be
something no one has ever seen before.
“Since it is the correct method chosen and compiled by the Library of
Heaven’s Path, let’s call it [ Heaven’s Path Divine Art ]!”
A thought flashes through his mind and he decides on the name of the
As though sensing his thoughts, the empty cover trembles and four words
appear on it.
Heaven’s Path Divine Art!
