Chapter 2869: Swelling in Strength

The break through with the Laws of the Sword and the strengthening of the powers of the soul only seemed to be a start for Jian Chen. In the next moment, mysterious power seemed to gush out from nothingness inside Jian Chen’s body, rapidly merging Jian Chen’s soul with the comprehension of the ways that belonged to the Laws of Space.

“Is this the power of the Spatial Insect Emperor’s beast soul?” The appearance of the power immediately made Jian Chen’s mind shudder, becoming filled with undisguisable joy.

Back then on the Delight Plane, he had successfully refined the beast soul of the Spatial Insect Emperor under the assistance of the greatest expert of the Delight Plane, the Rain Abbess, perfectly inheriting the Spatial Insect Emperor’s control over space.

However, the Spatial Insect Emperor was a terrifying existence on par with Grand Primes after all. With Jian Chen’s strength back then, although he managed to refine the Spatial Insect Emperor’s beast soul in the very end with the Rain Abbess’ assistance, he could only merge with a very small fraction of the beast soul’s power. The remaining power could not be absorbed because his soul was far too weak. In the end, that portion was hidden away in the depths of his body.

Now, with the strengthening of the powers of his soul, the powers of the beast soul lurking in Jian Chen finally reemerged, beginning to merge with his soul, allowing him to absorb it effortlessly.

Immediately, Jian Chen could sense his comprehension of the Laws of Space skyrocket. His grasp over the Laws of Space was becoming stronger and stronger.

The increase in his Laws of Space was completely different from the Laws of the Sword. For his Laws of the Sword to increase, he had to comprehend it bit by bit even with the Fruit of Nurturing Ways’ assistance. The true effect of the Fruit of Nurturing Ways was akin to clearing away the enshrouding mist and allowing the cultivator to see the ways of the world more directly and clearly. Whether they could successfully break through in the end would still depend on their fortunes and ability to comprehend.

That was why ingesting the Fruit of Nurturing Ways only gave around an eighty percent chance at breaking through and not a hundred percent.

If his ability to comprehend were insufficient, then it was still possible to fail the breakthrough even if he ingested the Fruit of Nurturing Ways at the limit of his current realm of cultivation.

However, absorbing the power of the beast soul was completely different. The power of the beast soul was the extremely pure power of laws. It was the ways of the world, so there was no need to purposefully comprehend them at all. Every bit he absorbed would mean his comprehension of the Laws of Space would increase by that amount.

This method of comprehension had completely overturned logic and surpassed the limits of laws. It could not be replicated. In the history of the various worlds, there was probably only Jian Chen who could achieve this with his special soul that had merged with a sliver of true Chaotic Force.

The powers of the beast soul flowed out endlessly, and Jian Chen did not reject them either. He accepted it all mindlessly.

Immediately, his mastery over the Laws of Space began to increase rapidly. It went from the original Second Heavenly Layer to the Third Heavenly Layer in mere a few seconds, followed by the Fourth Heavenly Layer…

Fifth Heavenly Layer…

Sixth Heavenly Layer…

Finally, after who knew how long, his soul became full once again after reaching the Eighth Heavenly Layer with the Laws of Space. He was unable to merge with even another fraction of the powers of the beast soul anymore.

After such a drastic increase, the powers of the beast soul still did not run out. However, the remaining powers hid away in the depths of his body once again as if it was waiting for Jian Chen’s next breakthrough.

Jian Chen slowly opened his eyes. The moment he opened his eyes, he immediately felt the world—no, more accurately, the space, the surroundings—had become different through his eyes.

In a daze, he seemed to vaguely make out the structure of space. The space, or even the entire world, had become even clearer and more transparent in his eyes.

Additionally, he could also sense that the connection between his body, his soul, and space had become even closer.

The Laws of Space have reached the Eighth Heavenly Layer. The next increase will be when I reach the major achievement of Sword Immortal. The power of the beast soul is very vast. It might not be able to elevate my Laws of Space to the same level as the Spatial Insect Emperor of the past, but I’ll be able to reach Chaotic Prime at the very least. As for what comes afterwards, I’ll have to slowly comprehend it myself…

The Laws of the Sword have reached the partial achievement of Sword Immortal. According to the divisions of the Saints’ World, it should be around the Eighth Heavenly Layer of Infinite Prime. Of course, I’ve only reached the partial achievement of Sword Immortal right now. When I reach the peak of the partial achievement of Sword Immortal, it should be equivalent to the Ninth Heavenly Layer of Infinite Prime…” Jian Chen silently sensed his strength and was immediately filled with satisfaction. He had already become far, far stronger than before he had broken through.

When I reach the major achievement of Sword Immortal, it will be Chaotic Prime…

The strengthening in terms of laws has already been completed. What comes next is the Chaotic Body.” Jian Chen sucked in a deep breath and calmed down his surging emotions before taking out a great pile of God Tier heavenly resources from his Space Ring and splitting them into different categories.

If I want to break through with the Chaotic Body, I need to absorb energy. The energy does not seem to be a lot, but if I use the strength and level of the Chaotic Force as a yardstick, I’ll need to spend thousands of years absorbing origin energy. Divine crystals are already nowhere near enough to make up for the gap. However, fortunately, there were many God Tier heavenly resources that can increase cultivation in the medicinal garden of the Darkstar race. It has saved me quite a lot of effort.” Afterwards, Jian Chen began adjusting his condition and found the ancient imprint in his body.

The imprint had been left behind when he devoured the life force of a Godking Life-devouring Beast in the Two World Mountains back then.

Jian Chen examined the imprint in his body carefully and gradually frowned, as the imprint gave him a bad feeling. He immediately understood that the existence of the imprint was anything but good.

He could not help but think of the strange mist in the Two World Mountains, as well as the deranged state of the outsiders from absorbing too much of the mist.

The Two World Mountains is not a safe place. Even I cannot see through the mysteries it’s hiding, so there is even less reason for me to casually devour the life force of Life-devouring Beasts. Looks like I need to be a little more cautious when I move around in the Two World Mountains in the future,” Jian Chen thought, before immediately refining away the imprint in his body.

The imprint was difficult to refine away, but it did only come from a Godking Life-devouring Beast after all, so it could not stump Jian Chen. It would only take him a little more effort.

Before long, the imprint had been completely eliminated. Afterwards, Jian Chen began ingesting God Tier heavenly resources, preparing to make a breakthrough with the Chaotic Body.

If these heavenly resources were refined into pills, then not only would their violent and brutal nature mellow out, making them easier to absorb, but their effects would be elevated to a whole different level. However, Jian Chen clearly had not grasped alchemy, so he would be dreaming if he wanted to refine God Tier pills.

As a result, he could only use the most primitive method available and directly ingest the God Tier heavenly resources.

This method of ingestion obviously came with certain side-effects, as many God Tier heavenly resources had extremely brutal and violent medicinal effects. The slightest carelessness could lead to more bad than good.

However, Jian Chen possessed the Chaotic Body, so he could completely neglect all side effects. No matter how brutal and violent the medicinal effects were, he could completely overwhelm and forcefully refine it.
