He would have this divine damnation here, Ye Mo lookd around and found that the spirit chi was denser than other places. Perhaps due to Blue Bead, it wasn't as cold as everywhere else.
When he reached hollow spirit state, his lightning storage formation had exploded. Now that he had experience, he set up 7 lightning storage formations and one lightning direction formation. He didn't believe seven of these couldn't hold the lightning power of the divine damnation.
When Ye Mo set up the spirit gathering formation with spirit crystals, this place was immediately enveloped with dense spirit chi mist. Ye Mo was very clear that this wasn't something the spirit gathering formation could create. The only explanation was that there was a spirit range here.
Thinking about this, Ye Mo rejoiced. He was lacking spirit ranges. This place had so many spirit marrow ponds and spirit chi due to the spirit range - no wonder. But he needed to face his divine damnation now, once he finished, he would dig the spirit range away.
He didn't touch the female bathing pond, but he wasn't going to be polite with the spirit range.
After eating a Break Spirit Pill, Ye Mo released his octagonal cauldron to spin above his head while using Three Birth Chant.
Half a day later, Ye Mo's cultivation essence gathered quickly trying to find a breaking point. His cultivation essence had reached a yardstick. Suddenly, it grew dark above his head. Instantly, tens of lightning arcs the size of grown mens' arms rained down.
Ye Mo didn't mind, he hacked out with Zi Xu.
This round of 36 lightning arcs didn't even touch Ye Mo's shadow and were blocked by Ye Mo's octagonal cauldron. Zi Xu was useless.
Ye Mo suddenly felt unhappy, his power had increased too rapidly and although that divine damnation was powerful, it didn't bring him any benefits. Thinking about this, he put his octagonal cauldron away.
It wouldn't feel good at all if the octagonal cauldron blocked all the divine damnation.
Just when Ye Mo put the octagonal cauldron away, it began to rumble…
36 more arcs rained down that were even thicker than the ones before. Zi Xu hacked out quickly and countless purple sword rays clashed with the lightning arcs, creating lightning sparks. It was very vibrant and pretty.
The remaining twenty or so arcs all hit Ye Mo. In a brief moment, Ye Mo's clothes and armor were all destroyed, but Ye Mo wasn't shocked at all. Hollow spirit state peak stage and nascent soul state peak stage, the difference was tens of times greater and yet the divine damnation was only a few times stronger than last time.
Ye Mo's power increased faster.
Lightning arcs hit Ye Mo's body and made cracking sounds on his bones. His flesh flew off and a burning smell came. However, Ye Mo was more excited.
He finally felt the benefits of taking the divine damnation head on. He refined lightning faster and his power also increased faster.
Although his skin and flesh cracked and even his bones, his body also recovered astonishingly fast as his power increased.
When the second wave ended, Ye Mo felt his meridians crack and an extremely powerful energy come. His cultivation essence almost solidified. His essence spirit was more condensed. Ye Mo knew he had broken through to body condensation state. this was the first time he didn't finish his divine damnation and already broke through.
Feeling the drastic rise in his power, Ye Mo grew excited. He didn't feel the cold at all and even put away Zi Xu, ready for the next wave.
He wanted to know what his limit was. He reached body condensation state after two waves, he wanted to know to what extent would his power grow to if he devoured the entire divine damnation.
If someone saw Ye Mo here, they would think Ye Mo was a madman. He was naked in this icy world, waiting to be blasted with lightning.
Eighteen more arcs rained down, although there were less, they were all twice as thick.
Ye Mo didn't fear it at all, and before the lightning landed on him, he used 11 Lightning Swords. He was going to fight the lightning arcs.
The black lightning arcs Ye Mo used clashed with the divine damnation lightning. Lightning splashed everywhere and the surroundings were tattered by the clash of two different types of lightning arcs.
Ye Mo's black lightning sword and the blue lightning arcs crackled and sprayed like fireworks, but if anything got splashed by the sparks, it would be destroyed without a doubt.
Ye Mo found that the lightning sword he used was far from the power of the lightning arcs that rained down. But three to four of his swords could cripple a lightning arc.
Ye Mo grew more excited and devoured lightning even faster. 11 Lightning Swords also grew faster. Ye Mo felt his power kept rising, before the divine damnation even finished, he was body condensation state level one peak.
The divine damnation seemed to be irated by Ye Mo and didn't stop at all. Lightning arcs rained down densely. Ye Mo used Three Birth Chant to the extreme while he kept attacking with 11 Lightning Swords. As for the ones that weren't blocked, he didn't mind letting them rain down on his body.
Eventually, the lightning arcs were as thick as legs. His 11 Lightning Swords also went up a level, two swords could block one lightning arc.
Luckily no one was here, if some cultivator saw Ye Mo he would think this must be an illusion. This wasn't someone trying to survive divine damnation but a madman trying to challenge divine damnation.
The higher cultivation level you reached, the more you must keep a state of mind. But cultivators had this fearful mentality towards divine damnation. Cultivators usually tried to reduce slaughter at higher cultivation levels just so the divine damnation wouldn't hit them as hard and reduce the heart demon pressure.
There was no one who fought against divine damnation like Ye Mo.
Divine damnation had a spirit and that was right. Ye Mo's actions had angered the divine damnation. Usually, a body condensation state divine damnation would've already finished.
But Ye Mo's wasn't done and instead the lightning arcs were getting thicker and denser.
Ye Mo didn't mind it at all. He loved this feeling, his power was increasing and the divine damnation wasn't completely ineffective on him. He devoured lightning power faster and as he did, his 11 Lightning Swords grew more powerful as well. Eventually, Ye Mo could cripple one lightning arc with one sword.
If Lightning Cloud Sect cultivators saw this, they would know it wasn't even 11 Lightning Swords anymore as there had never been such a powerful 11 Lightning Swords.
Ye Mo used another lightning sword to cripple the lightning arcs; his heart expanded. He looked at the lightning sword and said, "From now on, you will be just called Lightning Sword."
Ye Mo now knew he had an attack means on par with the Illusion Cloud Hua Mountain Strike, and that was Lightning Sword.
Ye Mo felt the bottleneck stopping his power being smashed open again, he was body condensation state level two. A heart demon appeared and Ye Mo lost interest. It was like nothing to him, he waved a few lightning swords and the heart demon disappeared.
The Bitter Bamboo was indeed a good thing. He had been cultivating next to Bitter Bamboo for so long that there wasn't even heart demon tribulation anymore. He tried it this time so he didn't use Bitter Bamboo leaf and it was no threat at all.
Ye Mo looked up into the sky, wanting another wave of divine damnation to come, but white rainbow spirit chi cloud fell above his head instead.
Ye Mo devoured the spirit chi cloud to consolidate his power but he was disappointed. He looked at the 7 lightning storage formation he had set up and didn't expect to not even use one.
Ye Mo had begun to understand a logic. Some things, the more scared you were the more they would happen.
The divine damnation was also something that abused the weak and feared the strong. When you were strong, it retreated.
Body condensation state level two and Lightning Sword mastered - Ye Mo rejoiced. This was a very fulfilling trip. That powerful feeling gave him the confidence to kill any body condensation state cultivator.
