Chapter 999 Exchange the Heaven Treasure for the Secret of Improving Strength!
“Did John Doe master the method of using the Heaven Treasure to enhance his combat capability?”
As soon as this question came out, it was immediately responded to by countless people.
“That seems to be the case.”
“I remember John Doe was selling Earth Treasures when he appeared for the first time. Then he began to fight for the Heaven and Earth Treasure. But he has been selling Earth Treasures when he got them. It seems that he is not interested in Earth Treasures.”
“How can an Earth Treasure compare with a Heaven Treasure?”
“Think about it carefully. What the post starter said seems to be right. Every time John Doe shows up, it seems to be related to the Heaven Treasure. The last time at the auction, he exchanged ten Guru Swords for the information of Ambergris Grass which is also a Heaven Treasure. Before he got the Heaven Treasure, although John Doe could defeat Lin Rusheng, it was very difficult for him to win. Moreover, he could only slightly injure Lin Rusheng. After the battle, John Doe immediately went to find the Ambergris Grass, and Lin Rusheng also began to make a breakthrough. Now Lin Rusheng has overcome the chasm of the guru and his strength has improved a lot, but he was maimed by John Doe eventually. The reason why John Doe suddenly became strong must have something to do with the Heaven Treasure!”
“Now that you put it in this way, it does seem to be the case!”
“Does the Heaven Treasure have other unknown functions apart from helping one enhance strength and make a breakthrough?”
“There are only a small number of Heaven Treasures. How many people in Wulin have used the Heaven Treasure? We are not familiar with it, so we don’t know the benefits of the Heaven Treasure. John Doe is willing to use ten Guru Swords to get information about the Heaven Treasure, which proves that he values the Heaven Treasure very much. In other words, it is very likely that his improvement is provided by the Heaven Treasure!”
All kinds of analysis and speculation appeared one after another.
As people read them, they thought it seemed to be true.
It was always easy to make people believe rumors.
With the rumors spreading, a large number of merchants immediately emerged and started purchasing Heaven and Earth Treasure on the Wulin forum.
“I want to buy the Heaven Treasure. I can exchange some goods for it or spend money to buy it. As long as you have it, I can afford it!”
“I want to purchase the Heaven Treasure with one thousand yuan. I’ll also accept the information about how to get the Heaven Treasure!”
The top forces such as the Four Great Families and the Pear Garden also took action.
Of course, among these top forces, the Four Great Families always kept a small number of Heaven Treasures, but most of them were ranked below 25th on the Heaven Treasure List.
After all, it was not easy to acquire Heaven Treasures. Hence, it was marvelous for them to collect some Heaven Treasures ranked below 25th.
As for the Four Great Families, they would not let go of this opportunity even if it was merely a rumor.
Although the patriarchs of the Four Great Families were all wise people, the rumors on the Internet were not all rumors. At least, it was obvious to all that John Doe would get the Heaven Treasure before every battle and that his combat capability would soar after getting the Heaven Treasure.
Therefore, people of the Four Great Families immediately started giving it a try.
“Beep, beep, beep…” At the foot of Zhongnan Mountain, Diwu Qian’s cell phone rang as she was in a hotel in the city.
It was a video call from Diwu Mingchuan.
“Dad,” Diwu Qian answered the phone.
“This time, the incident in Zhongnan Mountain has caused a sensation.”
As soon as the video call was connected, Diwu Mingchuan said, stroking his beard.
“Indeed,” Diwu Qian smiled and said, “Wulin must be in a commotion now, right? Even I was shocked. I didn’t expect John Doe to be able to defeat Lin Rusheng and even maim him.”
“He’s a Half-step Guru after all,” Diwu Mingchuan shook his head with a sigh and said, “Let’s talk about something else. You should have already heard the rumors spread in Wulin, right?”
Diwu Qian asked, “The rumor about the Heaven Treasure?”
“Yes.” Diwu Mingchuan nodded and said, “Although it still sounds impossible, it may have something to do with it. So I hope you can come back as soon as possible and give it a try.”
Diwu Qian asked with a smile, “Didn’t you always want to stop me from using the Heaven Treasure?”
“That’s because I’m afraid that your strength is not solid and unstable.” Diwu Mingchuan shook his head with a smile and said, “Now your strength is quite solid and stable. I don’t have to worry about that anymore. And you’re almost at the stage where you can use the Heaven Treasure. Although it’s a little early to use it now, it won’t have much of an impact.”
“Okay.” Diwu Qian nodded with understanding and said, “It shouldn’t have any negative impact. I’ll go back now.”
Diwu Qian hung up the phone and immediately rushed back to Nanjiang.
Meanwhile, Xi Shaolin, Qian Xiao, and Zhan Lin also rushed back to their families, ready to give it a try.
However, when the four of them returned to their clan and took the Heaven Treasure, they found that although the Heaven Treasure indeed had some effect, it was not enormous. They didn’t see the breakthrough or surge in strength like John Doe had.
Not only the Four Great Families but also the top forces in Wulin such as Pear Garden also found that the Heaven Treasure had no other additional effect except for its own effect, let alone improving combat capability.
Most clans felt that the reason why they didn’t see the expected effects was that they didn’t find the right way, so these rich and powerful clans in Wulin began to experiment with Heaven Treasures every day. When they ran out of Heaven Treasures, they would use Earth Treasures. Anyway, John Doe seemed to have started with Earth Treasures.
However, after having experiments for several consecutive days, these Wulin clans didn’t find anything and didn’t see any effect they expected.
People of these Wulin clans were all frowning and dumbfounded.
It didn’t work.
“It’s strange. Are the rumors wrong? Doesn’t the Heaven and Earth Treasure have that kind of effect at all?”
“If it keeps going on like this and the Heaven and Earth Treasures are still ineffective, how did John Doe make a breakthrough?”
“Why doesn’t it have that kind of effect at all?”
People of the major clans of Wulin all frowned.
Everyone was getting increasingly confused. Since the Heaven and Earth Treasures didn’t have such an effect, how could John Doe improve his strength?
How could John Doe’s strength improve so fast without using any Heaven and Earth Treasures?
Just when people of the rich and powerful clans in Wulin were racking their brains, a post suddenly appeared on the Wulin forum. “John Doe, could you come out and make a deal?”
At this critical moment, the appearance of this post undoubtedly aroused everyone’s curiosity.
Countless people swarmed to the post.
As people read it carefully, they found that the people who sent the post turned out to be one of the major forces in the Wulin—Heaven Sect.
Heaven Sect was a very special large force in Wulin, which was similar to the Pear Garden, but its overall strength was weaker than that of the Pear Garden. However, it was more mysterious than the Pear Garden.
As its name implied, Heaven Sect was a sect that could gather the energy of Heaven and Earth. This sect grasped some of the ancient spiritual energy gathering techniques passed down from their ancestors, which could make magic arrays.
It was a pity that the magic arrays they set up couldn’t cause much harm to human beings, which could only affect their surroundings.
Even so, the people of Heaven Sect still developed their own cultivation field in the deep mountains and wilderness, relying on spiritual energy gathering techniques that had been passed down from ancient times. What they planted were some herbs that were helpful to the Wulin people.
With the help of the Spirit Gathering Array, these herbs contained some of the Qi of Heaven and Earth. And the people of the Heaven Sect relied on these herbs to constantly improve their strength and expand the whole sect little by little, which made them become one of the major forces.
“What do they want to do?”
“It is said that the members of the Heaven Sect live in the Land of Peach Blossom and barely go out all year round. Even if they go out, they will travel in the remote mountains. Therefore, they have a much better chance to encounter the Heaven and Earth Treasure than ordinary martial arts practitioners. Are they going to sell the Heaven Treasure to John Doe this time since they sent the post?”
As everyone was confused, they clicked on the post to have a look.
“We, the Heaven Sect, live deep in the mountains, so we have more access to the Heaven and Earth Treasure. We now have a Heaven Treasure ranked 22nd on the Heaven Treasure List. We hope we can exchange it for a secret of rapid promotion with John Doe. We wonder if it’s possible.”
Seeing the content of the post, everyone immediately understood.
The Heaven Sect didn’t lack Heaven and Earth Treasure and spiritual herbs. What they lacked was John Doe’s method of rapidly improving his strength.
The reason why they were reluctant to come out was that they were weak.
Hence, John Doe’s method of rapidly improving combat capability was simply a remarkable temptation for them. Once they obtained this method, the overall strength of the Heaven Sect would definitely be considerably improved in a short period of time!
By then, the Heaven Sect might even be able to be ranked among the top 10 forces in Wulin!
Undoubtedly, there were numerous forces in Wulin that did not want the Heaven Sect to get John Doe’s secret of improving strength. However, there were also more people and forces waiting for John Doe’s answer.
They wanted to see if John Doe was willing to take out anything to get the Heaven Treasure.
Soon, Fang Qiu saw the post.
“A Heaven Treasure ranked 22nd?” Fang Qiu shook his head. This Heaven Treasure’s ranking was too low. It wouldn’t have any effect on him at all. Hence, it didn’t attract Fang Qiu in the slightest.
Therefore, after shaking his head, Fang Qiu turned off his phone and no longer paid attention to it.
In Jiangjing, Elder Yi also saw the post at once and learned the rumors that caused heated discussions on the Internet.
Because he had interacted with John Doe before and even fought with him for Earth Treasures, he had some understanding of the connection between John Doe and Heaven and Earth Treasures.
He knew that the Heaven Treasure had a protective effect, but he didn’t want to reveal the secret. Instead, he chose to remain silent.
He decided to keep his mouth shut and not tell anyone.
It was not for John Doe, but for himself.
Because once this secret was revealed, it would inevitably motivate the greed of people in Wulin, which was human nature.
If he revealed this point, then the greedy people might think that he still held back and didn’t tell everything to them.
Therefore, once this secret was revealed, it was highly likely that it would lead to a fatal consequence!
Elder Yi sighed softly, “I should pretend that this secret never existed.”
He knew that even if he exposed it, there was barely anyone who would be as ambitious as John Doe and start the cultivation all over.
“I lost it. I’ve truly suffered a great loss this time.” In the Chic Cloud Pavilion, the elder who was a guru regretted it after hearing the rumors in Wulin.
“I only exchanged a Heaven Treasure for a Guru Sword. I’ve lost a great deal. I’m working at the auction house myself, but I actually lost to a young man in the business! I’ll be really ashamed if anyone knows it.”
On the Wulin forum, countless people were waiting to see how John Doe would respond to the Heaven Sect.
However, John Doe did not appear or reply to the post after they waited for a long time.
It was obvious that John Doe was not going to respond to it.
This result greatly disappointed the crowd. Meanwhile, it also allowed the people of other forces that were secretly competing against the Heaven Sect to heave a sigh of relief.
Just when everyone was disappointed, a piece of news suddenly came out, which was exhilarating!
