Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-492
However, every family seemed to have smelled different flavors. They
continued to watch in a detached manner whilst minding their own
business. But, the strangest reaction had come from the Emperor. He had
ignored all matters — whether serious or not — ever since the army
had returned from the Southern Heaven City. He sat on the throne like a
calm fisherman sits on the shore when the sea is enveloped in a storm.
[I’ll act deaf and mute. It doesn’t matter what you do. It doesn’t matter
what noise you make. Why should any of this affect me?]
However, his obscure behavior had set even more tongues wagging…
The news of the Bone Tempering Pill’s astonishing strength spread far and
wide. And, the Tian Xiang City instantly became a very popular place. A
new chariot would enter the city almost every day. It would usually be
carrying members from the various Xuan Families. The carriages would
leave deep ruts in their wake. This symbolized that they were
transporting heavy stuff. Many of them also seemed to be carrying
something yellow and white.
There were many people who had arrived as lone travelers. But, they too
had brought huge amounts of paper money with them. And, they would start
converting them into gold and silver once they had entered the city.
Every bank in Tian Xiang had filled with paper money in a few days’ time,
while all the gold and silver had been transferred into the guest houses
And, the people were still endlessly streaming-in from far off places …
Jun Mo Xie had stepped into the Hong Jun Pagoda the moment he had gotten
a second’s time after returning home that day. He would absorb the
heavenly aura, convert it into energy, and would then put it to use…
Everyone knew that Jun Mo Xie was at the Jun residence. But, it seemed as
if no one had seen him there. And, there were no exceptions to this…
Jun Mo Xie had been training like a madman during this time. However, he
was also examining the ‘Book of Folk Remedy’ more frantically than ever.
[Tens of millions of medicinal recipes are recorded inside the Art of
Unlocking the Heaven’s Fortune. So, don’t tell me that these millions of
recipes don’t contain a single one which I can use to improve a person’s
strength at this time…]
Jun Mo Xie couldn’t believe that.

But, it can sometimes be very difficult to find something even if one
believes that they exist. He looked everywhere, but still came up empty
However, it wasn’t very surprising that his research was turning out this
way. It must be mentioned that the Art of Unlocking the Heaven’s Fortune
was supposed to be the most astonishing Xuan art. And, a mere mortal
should’ve never dipped his finger into a pool of such marvelous strength.
After all, it contained the ultimate methods for Xuan cultivation. One
could explain this better by drawing an analogy — Let’s say that a
scholar opened the greatest encyclopedia, and tried to search for
elementary knowledge in it. One could skim through the entire book, but
they’d only obtain superficial knowledge. It wasn’t that the level of the
book wasn’t enough… it was just that the said-scholar’s level wasn’t
enough to read this great encyclopedia…
Jun Mo Xie was unfortunately stuck in a similarly embarrassing situation.
The Art of Unlocking the Heaven’s Fortune recorded some excellent folk
remedies in it. However, it was a pity that he either couldn’t refine
those pills… or couldn’t use those pills if refined. There were some
pills which he could refine and use. But, his body was likely to explode
after taking even one such pill. Consequently, he would die…
[This is a super-encyclopedia. So, it is unlikely to leave me
disappointed. For example, the Ten Years’ pill was an exception to all
this. And, I’m sure that there are other ‘exceptions’ in this
encyclopedia. I only need to search some more. I’m sure I’ll find
It needs to be mentioned that Young Master Jun had built up great
reserves of pills such as the Ten Years’ pills during this time. In fact,
he now had hundreds of bottles of them. He had also made reserves worth
dozens of bottles when it came to the Bone Tempering Pills. So, he was
certain that he had enough for his requirements. He had done so because
he knew that the Xuan Beasts would only be interested in these pills, and
any other pills would’ve entirely wasted on them…
That’s because strength was the most important thing in the eyes of the
Xuan Beasts! Strength was also the second most important thing to them!
And, the third most important thing was also… strength.
This is what they wanted. This was their sole pursuit.
Young Master Jun had collected hundreds of legendary raw materials in the
Tian Fa Forest. Jun Mo Xie had originally collected those materials in
order to increase his own strength. And, he certainly had a lot of these
divine materials in-store when it came to his own needs. But, he still
didn’t have enough when it came to the most suitable set of required
ingredients. And, most of these would go waste because of this reason…
In fact, he could easily increase his strength over a short period of
time if he were start absorbing the efficacies of these medicines. But,
there would still be long-term repercussions. Let’s take that
hundred-year-old ginseng as an example. He could easily increase his
strength if he were to take that ginseng; his Qi’s quality would also
However, the result wouldn’t be too effective. After all, that ginseng
had accumulated the efficacy which suited its own composition over these
hundred years or so. But, this didn’t mean that it was a hundred-percent
suitable for human use…
There was a saying that ‘every medicine has its side effects’. Therefore,
taking only one kind of medicinal herbs would only result in poor
results. Moreover, this practice would also bring about an imbalance in
his Yin-Yang attributes. After all, something like a ginseng was rich in
the masculine Yang attribute, but lacked the same amount of feminine Yin
aspects. However, it must be said that the consumer’s strength would
increase. It was similar to the case of a doctor’s first choice medicine
when it came to the treatment of a patient who was in dire need. The
said-doctor would usually choose the medicine which can deliver the most
extreme degree of the urgently required essence. Consuming the ginseng
would certainly bring about the needed Yang effect to nourish the
consumer’s strength. However, it would also create an imbalance by
inducing a lack of the Yin attribute in the user’s body.
The Thousand Evils and Ten Thousand Poisons fruit he had collected in the
Tian Fa Forest could serve as another example. This item was extremely
precious for the society at large. But, it was insufficient in its
independent merit when it came to the top-notch recipes recorded inside
Art of Unlocking the Heaven’s Fortune. Therefore, he would need an
abundance of other high-grade materials to complement its nature. But,
Jun Mo Xie still held this item in high regards. And, this wasn’t because
its grade was higher than that of other items. Instead, it was because
Jun Mo Xie could use it as an important ingredient to concoct an
exceptional pill once he had entered the sixth layer.
The attributes of the Thousand Evils and Ten Thousand Poisons fruit were
very extreme when regarded from the perspective of human use. In fact,
they were extremely dark and extremely demonic. One could certainly
attempt to eliminate a great amount of its poisonous nature if they had
enough time. However, the immense power of the medicine would still be
too much to endure for a regular person. The Xuan Beasts’ physiques were
absolutely different. But, even they may not have been able to endure it.
They would naturally be able to breakthrough their bottlenecks if they
were successful in bearing the burden. And, their cultivations would
advance exponentially as a result. But, their bodies would explode if
they weren’t able to handle that burden. And, this would only mean a
certain death for them.
Tian Fa Forest’s Xuan Beast Kings were well-aware of this danger. But,
they were willing to fight through this life-threatening situation in
order for their pursuit of strength. This was somewhat like a divine path
in the Young Master Jun’s eyes. After all, the heavens do extort a price
This obviously didn’t mean that it wasn’t a legendary herb. After all,
one’s strength would increase by leaps and bounds if they were able to
consume it… However, this didn’t mean that this medicine’s properties
could be exploited under exception circumstances. One such way was to use
to make high-level divine pill. The successful refining of those pills
would increase the effectiveness. Moreover, its effects would reach a
higher number of individuals. Could such a herb be recklessly squander?
Let’s take the example of a millennia-old mushroom that can increase a
person’s strength by a hundred years upon consumption. It needs to be
mentioned that mushroom would only be used by one person in its raw form.
However, it could be used to give a hundred year worth of strength to ten
people in case it was to be refined into a medicinal pill.
The distinction between ease and importance is often ignored. And, the
Tian Fa’s Sacred Fruit was also an item that made a reluctant addition to
this list. The Xuan Beast Kings from Tian Fa wouldn’t be the only ones to
gain the benefits of this fruit’s properties if Jun Mo Xie was able to
refine a pill with it… many other people could also benefit from it.
Therefore, this had to be thought about in a proper manner. Else, it
would only be superfluous.
Jun Mo Xie’s Xuan cultivation increased unceasingly as the days passed.
So, he was already in the midst of breaking through the Sky Xuan middle
ranks in accordance to the regular Xuan strength parlance. This
effectively meant that he was inching towards the Sky Xuan peak.
Jun Mo Xie would be immersed in considering how he could refine the
legendary medicine when he wasn’t practicing his cultivation. He had been
researching the Book of Folk Remedies very carefully during this time.
And, Jun Mo Xie’s relentless efforts were finally beginning to pay off.
After all, he had finally short-listed some recipes from the massive list
of pills that were listed therein.
The “encyclopedia” admittedly had sparse elementary knowledge. But, it
didn’t mean that the said-knowledge was absent from its text. Moreover,
the scarcity of such knowledge also meant that only the extraordinary
ones of the said-category were listed therein. It was similar to the case
of the Thousand Evils Ten Thousand Poisons fruit. It was a legendary
medicinal source for the society at large. But, it was still something
they couldn’t use without the fear of a negative reaction from it.
However, the sixth layer of the Folk Remedies could achieve this feat.
Jun Mo Xie would only read the name and steps of refining the medicines
in the past. However, he had now started reading the side information and
detailed notes of the same as well.
He had fished out many other kind of pills besides the Ten Year’ pills
when it came to the category of supplements that could increase one’s
strength. In fact, he had found seven to eight more kinds of recipes in
his hunt for the needle in the haystack. Moreover, the effects of each of
these pills were extra-ordinary. And, this discovery had obviously given
Jun Mo Xie a nice surprise.
However, he had ignored the first and the second level pills. After all,
he was at the third level now. So, he obviously wanted to learn to refine
the pills of that level.
He had found three such pills — the Vitality Linkage Pill, the Vitality
Congregation Pill, and the Heavenly Vitality Pill.
Jun Mo Xie had spent a tremendous amount of effort in short-listing these
three pills. In fact, he felt as if sorting through the myriad of the
recipes listed in that book was more research than he had ever done in
his previous life.
Jun Mo Xie even believed that the entire syllabus of the Beijing
University would’ve been on his fingertips if he had shown such
concentrated zeal in his previous life. The language of each country
would’ve been nothing more than a matter of dusting his hand. Even
obtaining doctorates or masters of every prestigious university wouldn’t
have been anything for him. This would’ve obviously meant that he
would’ve never had to pretend being anyone…
The Vitality Linkage was a divine pill which promoted the speed of the
flow of aura through a person’s meridians. Moreover, it could be used for
Xuan Qi of a normal human and the Primary Qi of Tian Fa’s Xuan Beasts.
This pill certainly couldn’t advance someone’s Xuan strength. But, it
would greatly advance the speed at which the aura would work inside them.
Let’s imagine the speed of water’s flow inside a three meter wide river.
The speed of water in that river is quite even… neither fast nor slow.
And, there’s another river of the same breadth. But, the water in this
second river is surging with greater speeds. Wouldn’t the force of the
second river be much greater?
And, the effectiveness of this pill wasn’t limited to this comparison
alone! Let’s assume that the meridians of a regular person were like a
brook. Then, their meridians would resemble a high altitude waterfall
after they had taken this pill.
The river would remain the same river. But, its essence would be
The aim of the Vitality Linkage Pill was to turn a plane river into a
Let’s assume that a certain expert was able to strike three times in one
breath. Then, this person would be able to launch nine strikes in the
same time after they had taken this pill. And, there was much more to it.
After all, a person’s lethality would increase by ten-fold if their
battle-efficiency were to increase three-fold in a decisive moment of the
fight. Consequently, this minute difference would result in a massive
deviation in the final outcome. And, this was especially true for Tian
Fa’s fast and powerful Xuan Beast Kings. In fact, this pill was almost
tailor-made for them. It could even be called the most auspicious potion
in the whole world.
Even Jun Mo Xie felt that such an astonishing change was frightening!
However, good rewards are often accompanied by high risks. And, this pill
also came with its fair-share of dangers. One needed to be above the
Spirit Xuan Realm in terms of strength. Still, those without tough and
flexible meridians would end up impacting their own meridians in a
negative way by using this pill. Then, their entire bodies would burst
apart from the negative impact of this pill’s efficacy. And, there would
be no hoping of saving a person if something like this happened.
The Vitality Congregation Pill…
This medicine was the similar in nature since it couldn’t increase
strength directly either. But, it could quicken the speed of congregation
of the physical strength, spirit strength, primary strength, and Xuan
strength inside the body. Moreover, the dantian would also service the
rest of the body a hundred times better; the same stood true for the
various vessels connected to it. It could also increase the absorption
and transformation of the Qi in the surroundings. Moreover, the speed of
training would also increase by leaps and bounds after ingesting this
pill. In fact, the previous speed of cultivation would only seem
tortoise-like in front of this newly-attained one.
