Chapter 791 Four Spirits Origin Tower
A shiny coin arced through the air and landed in Zhou Yuan's hand. He looked at him with a face full of curiosity. The coin seemed to be made of some kind of special translucent crystal. A uniquely designed tower with a dazzling sun above it had been carved on the face of the coin.
Zhou Yuan fiddled with the coin in his hand, but could not detect any Genesis Qi ripples in it. He asked puzzled: "What function does it have?"
According to Ye Bingling's words, this was the item that attracted the numerous geniuses from the Tianyuan Region's Divine Dwelling to the four pavilions?
Ye Bingling cast a strange look at Zhou Yuan. Was there really anyone who didn't know about this in the Tianyuan Region?
Beside Zhou Yuan, Yi Qiushui explained softly, “In the center of the four pavilions is an extremely special floating island. On the island there is a tower known as the Four Spirits Origin Tower, which was personally built by the supreme sovereign Cang Yuan."
“Four Spirits Origin Tower…” Zhou Yuan murmured.
"There are four districts in the Four Spirits Origin Tower, the wind district, the forest district, the fire district, and the mountain district." Yi Qiushui laughed softly. "That's right, the four pavilions were actually established based on these districts."
"Is the Four Spirits Origin Tower capable of assisting in cultivation?" Zhou Yuan asked. Such cultivation areas were not uncommon.
Ye Bingling took over at this point, “It is not a simple cultivation area.”
"How do I say this?..."
He pondered for a moment before continuing, “Our ultimate goal after entering the Four Spirits Origin Tower is to obtain a Genesis Rune.”
"Genesis Rune?" Zhou Yuan frowned, not really understanding.
"An Eternal Genesis Rune."
Ye Bingling's last words caused his expression to change drastically, and he involuntarily shouted, “Eternal Genesis Rune?! How is that possible?"
Of course, he knew that Genesis Runes could be inscribed on the body to strengthen one's power. But these Genesis Runes were only temporary and would soon fade away after being activated.
An eternal Genesis Rune, on the other hand… although some of the extremely ancient apex-level Genesis Runes could last forever, only the highest level runes in this world could reach such heights!
But from what Ye Bingling had said, every individual who entered the Four Spirits Origin Tower had a chance to obtain an Eternal Genesis Runes!
This was completely irrational, especially for someone like Zhou Yuan, who was quite versed in the art of Genesis Runes.
“I don't understand how it works, but the Four Spirits Tower was created by Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan after all.”
“There are four ancient Genesis Runes within the Four Spirits Origin Tower, the wind spirit rune of the wind district, the forest spirit rune of the forest district, the fire spirit rune of the fire district, and the mountain spirit rune of the mountain district…”
“Take our Wind Pavilion wind district, for example. The gales of the astral spirit devastate its skies throughout the year. Within the astral gales, one's body and spirit will feel as if they were cut by a thousand knives. But if one manages to endure the torture, small Genesis marks from the astral gales will be left behind on one's body. The slow accumulation of these marks will eventually result in a complete wind spirit rune.”
"Is the wind spirit rune powerful?" Zhou Yuan asked.
Ye Bingling said, “The wind spirit rune can increase one's speed when activated, the earth spirit rune can speed up recovery skills, the fire spirit rune grants explosive power to one's Genesis Qi.” , and the mountain spirit rune greatly amplifies one’s resistance.”
"But most importantly, these four Genesis Runes will increase one's Genesis Qi."
He extended his right hand. Her hand seemed to glow as if it were made of white jade, so pretty that one would have to fight the urge to touch it.
However, Zhou Yuan showed an appropriate attitude; his strong will to survive prevented his gaze from lingering too long. Although he repeatedly praised the beauty of her hand inside his heart.
Ye Bingling was quite satisfied with his performance. There were probably no shortage of men whose ears turned red at the mere sight of his hand. These guys probably just had dirty thoughts in their heads.
Ice Genesis Qi gathered at the tips of his fingers, and specks of blue light converged towards the back of his hand, finally culminating in a mysterious incomplete blue Genesis Rune.
The Genesis Rune flickered as the Genesis Qi in Ye Bingling's fingertips shot forward. In that instant, Zhou Yuan clearly felt that the Genesis Qi current received a certain increase.
“My wind spirit rune is only half complete… however, if we measure it using Genesis Qi stars, it gives me an additional million Genesis Qi stars,” Ye Bingling said.
Although their Genesis Qi bases were already at the ten million level, one million was still very substantial.
Zhou Yuan gasped violently inwardly, his eyes filled with surprise. Could an incomplete Genesis Rune give one million Genesis Qi stars?
If it were complete, wouldn't it be equivalent to more than two million?
What the hell was this?
Zhou Yuan's current Genesis Qi bases had only reached eight million Genesis Qi stars. In other words, the wind spirit rune would boost him by a quarter of his total.
Only now did he finally understand why Ye Bingling had said that the many geniuses of the Tianyuan region had not flocked to the four pavilions in search of the Divine Dwelling medicine.
With such a magical Genesis Rune, one would undoubtedly have an advantage in a fight with an opponent of the same level.
The sight of Zhou Yuan's shocked appearance brought a strange smile from Ye Bingling as he said, “The Four Spirits Origin Tower is unique even in the entire Hunyuan Heaven. "If it weren't for Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan's extraordinary mastery of the Genesis Runes, it would be very difficult to create such a magical place."
Zhou Yuan sighed. "In fact, it is very amazing..."
He paused for a moment before suddenly asking, "Can anyone obtain more than one ancient Genesis Rune?"
Ye Bingling nodded slightly. "Of course you can, but according to the rules, you can only proceed to the other districts after completing the spirit rune of your own pavilion."
“Doesn't that mean that one person can collect all four runes? How much would Genesis Qi add?! Zhou Yuan couldn't help but ask. At two million per rune, wouldn't that be eight million and four?
However, even Ye Bingling couldn't help but laugh at his words as she shook her head.
"Tch, brat, you think too much of yourself."
These words were spoken by Wang, the sleepy-eyed old man, behind the counter. “Do you think it's easy to complete a wind spirit rune? “You should ask how long it took Ye Bingling to get his half-completed rune.”
Ye Bingling pursed her lips and said, “A year and a half.”
“More importantly, everyone has a time limit in the Four Spirits Origin Tower, which is three years at most. “Once this limit has been reached, you will no longer be allowed to enter the Four Spirits Origin Tower.”
“In the current four pavilions, only the other three pavilion masters have managed to complete a spirit rune. Our Wind Pavilion is quite weak in comparison. In this generation, only Chen Beifeng and I have reached the half-rune level.”
Zhou Yuan was shocked, somewhat unable to understand. "Why is there a restriction?"
Elder Wang calmly explained, “When you enter the tower, some of the life energy and Spirit power in your body will be consumed. Only by doing this, will he be able to infinitely provide them with Genesis Marks to create the spirit runes.”
“According to our evidence, allowing them entry for three years is the limit. “Irreversible damage will be done to one’s life energy and Spirit if this limit is exceeded.”
“There is no free lunch in this world. Naturally, one will have to pay to get something."
Only then did Zhou Yuan understand. So one had to offer his life energy and spiritual power to the Four Spirits Origin Tower. If this was the case, it was somewhat understandable.
However, there certainly had to be many details and complexities behind the operation of the tower. It would be impossible for him to fully understand Master Cang Yuan's masterpiece given his current knowledge of the Genesis Runes.
But it seemed quite impossible to create the four ancient Genesis Runes in three years. No wonder Ye Bingling had laughed. She had probably felt that he was too optimistic.
Even a single complete Ancient Genesis Rune would bring enormous benefits…
Desire burned in Zhou Yuan's eyes as he gently tossed the crystal coin in his hand. "These origin coins should be necessary to enter the Four Spirits Origin Tower, right?"
Ye Bingling nodded and said, “After entering the tower, one has to burn origin coins to summon the forces containing the Genesis marks. The more coins you burn, the more Genesis Marks you will summon. Without coins, no one will be able to accumulate an ancient Genesis Rune.”
“An ordinary pavilion member will receive twenty origin coins per month. As a deputy pavilion master, you will be able to collect eighty origin coins every month. If you want more, you will have to exchange it with other pavilion members by completing quests."
Zhou Yuan let out a long sigh as he looked at the shiny coin in his hand. He finally understood why this item had even brought out a smile from the cold Ye Bingling.
Because she really was such an adorable pretty girl!
After Ye Bingling's explanation, Zhou Yuan was now extremely interested in the Four Spirits Origin Tower. Therefore, he made a small goal for himself...
He would obtain a wind spirit rune!
