Chapter 417: Planning


Translator: Transn Editor: Transn


Certainly, Minghe would not be satisfied with his present situation. Although he had entered the Battlefield of Gods and Demons for only a short time, he made greater progress than most Creatures of the battlefield. So to speak, Minghe was getting stronger all the time. After comprehending the Law of Time, he progressed faster in strength.


Although millions of years had passed in the outside world, Minghe practiced in the Twelve Earthly Branches Formation, so it was tens of millions of years. His Original Spirit had reached the Late Stage of the Fate Realm. The Indestructible Demon Body did not only regain the strength of Late Stage; italso made still further progress. Perhaps, it would not be long before his body reached the Peak of the Fate Realm.


Compared with Minghe's rapid progress, his Three Separations progressed relatively slower. "Good Separation" Heaven and Earth Taoist reached the Middle Stage of the Fate Realm. After all, the World of Heaven and Earth had become great trichiliocosm now. Thus, it was difficult to make progress. Although Heaven and Earth Taoist only reached the Middle Stage of the Fate Realm, he was invincible among experts of the same realm. Confronting experts at the Late Stage of the Fate Realm, he would be able to fight.


"Evil Separation" Red Lotus Taoist progressed faster than Heaven and Earth Taoist. He comprehended the Law of Karma and the Law of Killing at the same time. Moreover, he constantly refined the Original Body – Red Lotus of Fire. He reached the Middle Stage of the Fate Realm much earlier than Heaven and Earth Taoist, but his combat power was inferior to Heaven and Earth Taoist's. He could only defeat most experts at the Middle Stage of the Fate Realm, but was unable to fight experts at the Late Stage of the Fate Realm.


"Selfcentric Separation" Musen progressed fastest, because he only comprehended the Law of Martial Arts and practiced Hegemonic Body of Martial Arts. Now, Musen had become an expert at the Late Stage of the Fate Realm and was the strongest one among the Three Separations. Minghe comprehended three Divine Laws, so he naturally slowed down his pace of cultivation. Perhaps, Musen would reach the Peak of the Fate Realm earlier than Minghe did.


Minghe did not care about this. Anyhow, Musen was his Selfcentric Separation, who could never replace him. Moreover, Minghe thought that the realm did not represent strength. Even if both he and Musen reached the Late Stage of the Fate Realm, Minghe would be able to defeat Musen. Compared with Musen, Minghe had such profound foundation. Thus, they were not comparable.


During the tens of millions of years, Minghe and his Three Separations not only practiced, but also refined Magic Weapons and comprehended tactical formation. Although these were external forces, Minghe still needed to resort to them. Even Pangu wield supreme treasures of Chaos, such as Pangu Ax, Jade Butterfly of Fate, and Green Lotus of Fate. Only the Great Way would not need these.


At this time, Minghe paid a heavy price to refine Magic Weapons. He input most refining materials in his collection. He even destroyed the Anti-evil Ax and let the God-killing Spear completely devour it. Except for the fairy sword of Half Supreme Treasure of Chaos, he let the God-killing Spear devour all treasures he had acquired from Hongjun.


With these Magic Weapons, the God-killing Spear had no need for any other refining materials. Now, it had become a Highest Grade Spiritual Treasure of Chaos. Although it cost a lot, the God-killing Spear displayed its powerful strength , which also delighted Minghe. Despite it being merely a Highest Grade Spiritual Treasure of Chaos, its power was close to that of the fairy sword.


Except for Minghe's God-killing Spear, "Good Separation" Heaven and Earth Taoist's Cauldron of Heaven and Earth and Ruler of Heaven and Earth, "Evil Separation" Red Lotus Taoist's Yuantu Sword and Abi Sword, "Original Body" the 36-graded Red Lotus of Fire, and "Selfcentric Separation" Musen's Kongtong Seal were all promoted to Top Grade Spiritual Treasures of Chaos. However, Heaven and Earth Taoist's Wheels of Heaven and Earth was a little special, which just advanced to Mid-grade Spiritual Treasure of Chaos.


As for comprehension of tactical formation, although Musen comprehended Veridical Martial Origin Formation to a new Realm so that it could display the power of Half Step to the Supreme Realm, he felt awkward for displaying a formation. In addition to him, it still needed 12 martial experts at the Early Stage of the Fate Realm at least. Minghe's Blood God Doppelganger and Clone of Blood God was sufficient for the rest.


The trouble was in finding 12 martial experts at the Early Stage of the Fate Realm. Minghe's strongest Blood God Doppelgangers were only A Half Step to the Fate Realm, so they did not reach the requirement. Although he knew how to refine Puppet of Blood God and could refine an expert at the Early Stage of the Fate Realm into Puppet of Blood God, Minghe did not know where he could find the 12 martial experts for refinement.


Without the 12 martial experts of the Fate Realm, Musen's Veridical Martial Origin Formation only could display the power of the Peak of the Fate Realm. Despite the fact that the formation was already powerful enough and such formations were few in the Medium Layer of the Battlefield of Gods and Demons, Musen still felt dissatisfied. However, as Minghe could not think of a good idea there and then, he had to put it aside for the time being.


Compared with Musen, "Evil Separation" Red Lotus Taoist's self-created Sword Formation was satisfactory. It was called the Karma Killing Sword Formation, which was a powerful formation arranged by him with Sword of Karma – Yuantu Sword, Sword of Killing – Abi Sword, and his Original Body – Red Lotus of Fire. Even if he only reached the Middle Stage of the Fate Realm, Red Lotus Taoist could almost display the great power of Half Step to the Supreme Realm. If he improved his strength further, or Yuantu Sword and Abi Sword and Red Lotus of Fire advanced by a level, the power of the Sword Formation would increase sharply.


This was an immense relief for Minghe. As for "Good Separation" Heaven and Earth Taoist, he advanced in comprehending Cosmic Stars Formation. The formation had already been able to display the power that could defeat experts at the Peak of the Fate Realm. If a few experts of A Half Step to the Supreme Realm were in the formation, there would be no return for them. However, it might take time to improve the formation so that it was powerful enough to utterly defeat experts of A Half Step to the Supreme Realm.


The problem was that only in the World of Heaven and Earth could the power of the Cosmic Stars Formation perform to the utmost. If in the Battlefield of Gods and Demons, Heaven and Earth Taoist arranged the formation with Cosmic Stars Banner, and its power was very limited. Because he did not find the right people, he had to arrange the formation with Blood God Doppelganger and Clone of Blood God. In this case, the power of the formation was naturally limited.


The formation had been improved, but no right people could arrange the formation. This agonized Minghe. Although only 12 experts of the Fate Realm were demanded in the Veridical Martial Origin Formation, all the people were martial cultivators. With such strict conditions, it would be difficult to find 12 people even in the Land of Central Region. After all, Minghe had never seen any martial experts until now.


The requirements for Cosmic Stars Formation were more ridiculous. 365 banners of primary stars in the formation needed to be controlled by 365 experts. Even if Minghe and his Three Separations entered the formation together, an extra 361 people would still be needed. How could Minghe find so many people? Moreover, he could not affirm that these people would completely obey orders.


However, compared with the Veridical Martial Origin Formation, the Cosmic Stars Formation was more profitable. The controllers of 365 Cosmic Star Banners only needed to reach the Fate Realm. Minghe could catch 365 experts of the Fate Realm and refine them into Puppets of Blood God. In doing so, there would be people to arrange the formation.


In the Land of Central Region, most experts of the Fate Realm had backups, and there were only a few Individual Cultivators. Thus, if Minghe wanted to gather enough people to arrange the formation, it would be apparently impossible to only find Individual Cultivators of the Fate Realm. If he wanted to take action against the powerful and influential experts of the Fate Realm, he could not even make even one mistake. He didn't want to ask for trouble.


Compared with his last trip, Minghe had a radical change in power. Although he still had spare resources, he was unwilling to live off his past gains. He had gone to the Starry Sky Region and plundered a lot of resources there. Meanwhile, he also completed many tasks about the Starry Sky Region. If he went there again, he would not gain much.


Moreover, due to Hongjun, many experts of the Fate Realm in the Starry Sky Region had died. Among them, some were involved with many forces of the Central Region. If he went there now, it would cause some unnecessary trouble. That's not good. Although he didn't mind the trouble, it was a waste of his time.


Since he could not go to the Starry Sky Region, Minghe focused on the remaining three Forbidden Lands. Although there were countless Fated Chance in the Starry Sky Region, only the four Forbidden Lands were known and ownerless Land of Fated Chance. As for the other lands, some were not discovered, and some were occupied by various forces. Hence, he only could target the remaining three Forbidden Lands.


After returning from the Starry Sky Region this time, Minghe went to the Library to check and study carefully. He kept all secrets of the Central Region in mind, to avoid the case as same as Star Tree of Origin. The four Forbidden Lands had been in the Battlefield of Gods and Demons for a long time. Hence, most parts of them had been figured out, but there still were some mysteries.


Take the Burial Land for example. Legend had it that the land was changed from a debris of the battlefield of Gods and Demons in ancient times. What was more strange was that the land changed as the era changed, and most parts of the land became different. Until now, most secrets of the Burial Land were unknown.


Moreover, the Burial Land opened every hundred million years. There were at least nine million years before it would open again, but Minghe was very interested in it. According to records, valuable treasures like the supreme treasure of Chaos and Taoist characters like 'Wu' could be found there, which was tempting to Minghe.


Since he could not go to the Burial Land for the time being, Minghe only could target Underworld Blood Sea and Devil Region. Each of the two lands had their own merits. However, Minghe had a special closeness with Underworld Blood Sea. Logically thinking, he should go to Underworld Blood Sea first, but he gave up this plan after careful consideration.
