Chapter 917 Silver Shadow Evolution
In a training chamber.
The room was spacious and bright, with high ceilings inscribed with ancient and intricate Genesis Runes.
At this moment, the powerful Genesis Qi of the universe was bubbling endlessly from the numerous holes in the floor and walls, causing mist to linger in the room. This was a sign of the richness of the Genesis Qi in the room.
Zhou Yuan was sitting cross-legged on a gigantic jade rock. It took a lot of precious treasures and materials to maintain a training room of this level every day. Therefore, only senior-level experts from the Tianyuan Utopia could enjoy such a room. Before being promoted to head pavilion master, Zhou Yuan was far from qualified.
But now he was qualified.
Zhou Yuan had a very solemn expression on his face, and in front of him was a silver ball silently suspended in the air. The surface of the silver ball was as smooth as a mirror, but upon closer look, numerous Genesis Runes as subtle as dust were within it.
Even Zhou Yuan was amazed by Silver Shadow's subtleties.
Silver Shadow was considered the ultimate masterpiece of the oldest sect of Black Water. It was unknown how many generations of effort went into the masterpiece.
Unfortunately, the sect had suffered a disaster before they could thoroughly develop such a masterpiece.
With a thought, Silver Shadow slowly melted in front of Zhou Yuan, turning into a bubbling puddle of silver liquid. Its depths shone like a starry sky as if it had some kind of life force.
Zhou Yuan slowly closed his eyes. His Spirit rose from the top of his head and he sat cross-legged in the air.
On the fingertips of the Spirit, a Spiritual Flame formed.
It was at this moment that the space bag on Zhou Yuan's waist opened and several treasures exuding strange light slowly floated in the air.
Zhou Yuan's spiritual power spread out, enveloping some treasures and dragging them into the Spiritual Flame.
The Spiritual Flame burned, quickly melting the treasures. All of its impurities were purified and gradually turned into liquid.
Zhou Yuan's spirit was completely absorbed in the process and he did not dare to relax. All of the materials were quite rare, and it took a while for Chi Jing to obtain them. Now that the Nine Regions Tournament was imminent, he had no time to wait for the next batch of materials to arrive.
His Spiritual Flame continued to melt the treasures and materials, extracting a pool of thick liquid that was emitting colorful light.
Zhou Yuan's spiritual power was constantly fusing and breaking the materials.
This process alone was enough to consume three days of his time.
When the fourth day arrived, the thick liquid fused from numerous treasures and materials began to give birth to countless dazzling crystal particles.
Zhou Yuan took a deep breath, a look of exhaustion in his eyes. But very quickly, he regained his energy because he knew that melting the materials was only the first step.
Silver Shadow's evolution was more difficult than he had thought, and now that Yaoyao was not with him, he could only depend on himself for everything.
Zhou Yuan unreservedly released his spiritual power, pouring it all into the dazzling liquid. The tens of thousands of crystal particles within the liquid began to slowly rise under the manipulation of his spiritual power. In the end, the dust surrounded his Spirit like a planetary ring.
Spiritual power wrapped around the crystal dust, and subtle marks appeared that formed several mysterious Genesis Marks.
Yaoyao had once mentioned that Silver Shadow was not complete and would only be useful at the Alpha-Origin stage. If Zhou Yuan wanted to continue developing it, he would need to complete it internally.
Even the current Zhou Yuan could not decipher the mystery of Silver Shadow, but fortunately, Yaoyao had helped him and given him the derivation method.
Zhou Yuan needed to inscribe the Genesis Runes that Yaoyao had derived into the powder-form crystals one by one.
This required very strict control of his Spirit. Fortunately, Zhou Yuan's spirit, who was in the early transformative stage, was strong enough to do so.
But inscribing the runes was a slow process and would take a long time.
Zhou Yuan was very calm and patient as he operated his Spirit and inscribed the Genesis Marks on the dusty crystals one by one.
This process continued for half a month.
Half a month later.
When Zhou Yuan inscribed a complete Genesis mark on the last grain of crystal dust, he almost collapsed from exhaustion. His Spirit, sitting cross-legged in the air, became much dimmer than before. It was evident that the process had taken its toll on his body.
Zhou Yuan did not continue, but instead activated the Primordial Chaos Divine Whetstone Visualization Method and began to restore the consumed spiritual power.
After a long while, his Spirit shone brightly once again.
Once recovered, Zhou Yuan's eyes flashed.
He looked closely at the crystal dust surrounding his body in a ring formation and saw that each particle was completely covered in complicated Genesis Runes.
“Yaoyao really has a terrifying Genesis Rune mastery.” Zhou Yuan couldn't help but marvel. Those Genesis Runes were like countless tiny gears in a machine, and once integrated into Silver Shadow, they could fill the incomplete and allow Silver Shadow to evolve!
“The Genesis Runes have all been inscribed on the crystal particles. The next step should be the last step, which is to integrate them with Silver Shadow!"
Zhou Yuan adjusted his state to its peak and then with a thought, the tens of thousands of crystal particles lit up and poured into the silver liquid.
Zhou Yuan had an unprecedented solemn expression. His spiritual power was unleashed without reservation, and even the veins on his forehead were throbbing. Furthermore, rays of dazzling light were constantly being released from the Spirit sitting cross-legged in the air.
Dusty crystals floated up and down in the silver liquid.
The Genesis Marks inscribed in the crystal dust exuded strange power in an attempt to merge with the silver liquid.
The two were constantly coming into contact with each other, causing bursts of dazzling light to shoot out of the silver liquid. The light made the training room look incomparably strange but beautiful.
But as time passed, Zhou Yuan's forehead began to drip with cold sweat.
He found that no matter how the crystal powder and silver liquid came into contact, they could not truly integrate.
“My spirit is not strong enough! "It is impossible to integrate the crystal dust into Silver Shadow in the initial transformation stage!"
Zhou Yuan's expression changed abruptly. He couldn't help crying bitterly in his heart. Yaoyao, you underestimated the difficulty of Silver Shadow's evolution. After several attempts, he realized that this was not something that someone from the initial transformative stage could achieve. After all, not everyone could have near-perfect Spirit control like Yaoyao. Even Zhou Yuan, who had remarkable talent in Spirit cultivation, was unable to do so.
But everything was prepared and he was just one step away. Could it be that he had to give up now?
If the crystal dust could not integrate with Silver Shadow in time, the dust would soon dissipate.
Zhou Yuan asked himself anxiously: What do I do?
