413 Heavenly Tribulation
Wu Ming had long been rendered speechless.
He could not be blamed for being so shocked. Jiang Ming’s talent was too monstrous.
However, truly stepping into the Innate Martial Realm was only the beginning. Only by cultivating all three transformations of this realm could one be qualified to advance to the middle stage of the Innate Martial Realm. This required a lot of time and resources. Many experts might not be able to advance to the middle stage of the Innate Martial Realm even if they spent their entire lives cultivating.
However, Jiang Ming was different!
He had already cultivated the three transformations to perfection before he truly advanced to the Innate Martial Realm. It could be said that if Jiang Ming wanted to advance to the middle-stage Innate Martial Realm now, he only needed to consume resources.
Just as Wu Ming was in shock, the atmosphere changed again.
The sky was covered in multicolored light, which turned into countless snakes of dark lightning and pounced straight at Jiang Ming. This was a type of heavenly tribulation!
“The path of immortal cultivation is against the heavens. Although the path of martial arts has not been long, it was also a cultivation path that was on par with the immortal path. To a certain extent, breaking through in the path of martial arts is even more heaven-defying than advancing in the immortal path, and it is easier to incur the jealousy of the heavens! However, even if the path of martial arts is more likely to attract the jealousy of the heavens, it shouldn’t be like this. Most of the heavenly tribulations are to dissuade cultivators from taking further steps, or even become opportunities for cultivators to hone themselves. However, now it’s different. This tribulation isn’t to stop this kid from advancing, but to completely destroy him!”
Wu Ming could not help but gulp. He felt some compassion in his heart and wanted to help Jiang Ming block the heavenly tribulation’s attacks.
This was nothing to a Nascent Soul Realm cultivator like him.
However, such a tribulation was definitely a devastating blow to a cultivator who had yet to truly step into the Innate Martial Realm!
“No! It’s hard to come by such a genius! I’m definitely not letting him die! After all, there are so many individual cultivators in the world, and they are also suppressed and massacred by big forces. If we can open up a new cultivation path outside of the immortal path and let more people step onto the path of martial arts, it will be enough to guarantee the future of most individual cultivators in the world!”
Although Wu Ming was an individual cultivator, he had the interests of the world in his heart.
From the moment he stepped into the world of immortal cultivation, he had been determined to seek a chance of survival for all the individual cultivators in the world. He would not let them become cannon fodder and tools for the big forces. Unfortunately, Wu Ming had not been able to achieve his dream for so many years because there were too many obstacles blocking his way. A year ago, some of the elders and leaders of some forces had even joined forces to kill him because he had hindered the big forces from monopolizing all the resources in the world of immortal cultivation!
“However, if I can help this kid live and let him open up a path of martial arts, then it will be different from the path of immortality. Even if those big forces want to stop or suppress him, there will be no reason for them to do so.”
The more Wu Ming thought about it, the more excited he became. He immediately wanted to attack. However, he was quickly stunned on the spot.
At the same time, Elder Mo, who had just arrived, was also stunned.
“This tribulation isn’t shooting ordinary heavenly lightning. It’s shooting Profound Lightning! It’s shooting ninth-grade Profound Lightning! Under normal circumstances, unless you advance to the Nascent Soul realm, it’s impossible for the Profound Lightning to descend. After all, below the Nascent Soul Realm, even cultivators who have stepped into the Golden Core Realm are just ants. Only those who have reached the Nascent Soul Realm will have the ability to compete with the heavens. The descent of the Profound Lightning is to kill Nascent Soul Realm cultivators or to prevent cultivators from stepping into the Nascent Soul Realm to ensure the authority of the heavens!”
Elder Mo could not help but look around, and his expression became increasingly ugly.
Who was it?
How could there be a new Nascent Soul Realm cultivator near Jinyuan City and another cultivator who was about to step into the Nascent Soul Realm?
“No, this matter must be reported. There must not be a second Nascent Soul Realm cultivator near Jinyuan City. Eh? Something’s wrong!”
Elder Mo seemed to have sensed something and subconsciously looked in a direction. It was where Jiang Ming had broken through.
“He’s so young and his essence is so exuberant. How can he advance to the Nascent Soul Realm? He was about to advance to the Golden Core Realm… No, he was about to advance to the Innate Martial Realm! How is this possible? He’s so young. Unlike the path of immortality, which could use various methods to stabilize the foundation, the path of martial arts pays more attention to the little details… At his age, even being at the Foundation Establishment Realm of martial arts would make him a prodigy! However, he’s already this strong! Most importantly, even if he advanced to the Innate Martial Realm, he wouldn’t attract any Profound Lightning.”
It was no wonder that Elder Mo was so surprised. There were nine grades of Profound Lightning. The ninth grade was the lowest grade, and the first grade was the highest grade.
And below the ninth grade, there were still unranked levels.
When many cultivators stepped into the Nascent Soul Realm, they would at most attract Profound Lightning of a lower grade. Only a genius with sufficient talent and an exceptionally strong foundation would attract the descent of the ninth-grade Profound Lightning from the heavenly tribulation when they stepped into the Nascent Soul Realm.
Although the path of martial arts was heaven-defying and easily provoked the jealousy of the heavens, if one advanced to the Innate Martial realm, they would at most attract the unranked Profound Lightning.
However, now, outside Jinyuan City, an unknown, younger cultivator was about to break through to the Innate Martial Realm and even attracted the ninth grade of the Profound Lightning. Once the news spread, the entire Feather Kingdom would be shocked!
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
The Profound Lightning fell fiercely. The lightning snakes seemed to have gained intelligence and charged at Jiang Ming ferociously. They opened their mouths to devour Jiang Ming’s body and soul.
Jiang Ming did not even raise his head or open his eyes. He directly roared and shook away the lightning snakes. The killing intent that spread out from his body crushed many of the snakes, forcing them to turn into the original body of the Profound Lightning and return to the heavenly tribulation.
“Where are you going? Enter my body and become a part of my path to the Innate Martial Realm!”
Jiang Ming chose to attack. He wanted to draw the power of the Profound Lightning into his body and improve his physique!
