Seclusion was an extremely arduous task, but it also required a great deal of perseverance.
Martial artists needed to circulate their cultivation techniques in a separate secret room at all times. That was equivalent to every day becoming exceptionally long for them.
Therefore, many martial artists could choose to go into seclusion without asking about the world, but most of them would not be able to endure it.
The outside world of flowers was a temptation, and the depression of seclusion was a kind of torture.
While Xiang Nan was excited, he displayed two jars of red dragon incense.
"We have to do a good job these ten days!"
Xiang Nan poured a bowl of wine and drank it in large mouthfuls. Then, he immediately circulated the Nine Transformations of Thunder and began a long path of seclusion.
Running cultivation techniques anytime, anywhere, allowed martial artists to feel every minute and every second exceptionally clearly. This would greatly increase their perceptual abilities, and it would bring about an experience that would last as long as a year.
Xiang Nan frantically circulated his cultivation and improved. Once he felt tired, he drank a large bowl of red dragon fragrance and continued to refresh himself.
One day passed, five days passed.
Still, no one came in to ask Xiang Nan, which made Xiang Nan feel much more at ease.
At the same time, four of the Starlight Coins that were placed beside him had lost their luster. Adding on the one that opened the door, a total of five of them had been consumed.
"There are still five Starlight Coins." Xiang Nan collected his work and packed his things into his storage ring before pushing the door open.
He wanted to test whether the special upgrade of the Nine Transformations of Thunder was only effective on the first level or on all levels.
The last five Starlight Coins were used by Xiang Nan to enter seclusion on the fifth floor.
When he arrived at the second floor, he discovered that there were already more people. The higher he went, the more the number of Son of Heaven Peak martial practitioners and Star Guild disciples began to increase dramatically.
There were almost no people on the first floor, but on the fifth floor, there was already a feeling of overcrowding. The entire fifth floor was filled with Guild disciples gathered in twos and threes, chatting.
These people were also in seclusion, but after a day or two of continuous cultivation, they would come out to breathe and chat, and then continue to enter seclusion. This way, they could relax their spirits.
Sure enough, no one else was an idiot. They all knew that time was precious. It would be more cost-effective to spend five Starlight Coins on the fifth floor for one day than to spend five Starlight Coins on the first floor for five days.
The stone doors of the seclusion room on the fifth floor were all closed, but most of the diagrams on the stone doors were dim, indicating that there were already people inside.
Xiang Nan found a stone door that was shining with diagrams and was about to open it, but was stopped by a Guild disciple chatting beside him.
"This is my seclusion room." The Guild disciple looked coldly at Xiang Nan.
"There's no one inside." Xiang Nan said.
The disciple said, "Of course I know that there is no one, but I will go in after resting for a while."
If he came out to rest, he wouldn't consume Starlight Coins.
Xiang Nan frowned and could only find another one that no one could occupy.
He used five Starlight Coins to open the stone door. After entering, he immediately activated the Nine Transformations of Thunder.
As a result, Xiang Nan was overjoyed.
It really worked! Cultivating in secluded meditation on the fifth floor should increase his cultivation speed by 50 times, but in reality, Xiang Nan had obtained 150 times as much!
It was exactly the same as the first floor!
"Since that's the case, then I'm relieved." Xiang Nan took a deep breath and continued to cultivate.
He wanted to make good use of this day to increase his cultivation as much as possible.
The two World Exterminating Divine Lightning bolts were also helping Xiang Nan, which was the same as cultivating with the three of them.
On this day, the results of Xiang Nan's cultivation were exactly the same as the benefits of 150 days of cultivation in the outside world.
Adding in the five days of cultivation on the first floor, it should have been a hundred days of improvement, but in reality, it was a full three hundred days, equivalent to about a year.
At the same time, Xiang Nan's early Sixth Heaven Scryer Realm had also begun to loosen, advancing towards the middle stage.
"I still need more Starlight Coins and more World Devastating Divine Lightning!" Xiang Nan clenched his fists, his eyes shining with excitement.
Originally, he still had a red demon blood thunder in his giant saber. After absorbing it, he could increase his cultivation speed by four times.
However, he was not a short-sighted person. In the long run, using a low-grade divine lightning like the Red Devil Blood Lightning to occupy a spot in his Nine Transformations of Thunder was truly not worth it.
Long-term gains cannot be sacrificed for short-term gains.
Xiang Nan was anxious to complete the mission and obtain the next World Exterminating Divine Lightning!
After leaving the secret room, he discovered that there were many more people on the fifth floor.
A middle-aged man was hugging his shoulders and waiting in dissatisfaction at the door. When he saw Xiang Nan come out, he said, "You brat! When I went to the toilet, I took up my secret room!"
Xiang Nan shrugged.
He had only taken up one day, so the middle-aged man didn't mind.
Xiang Nan said, "Senior Brother, are there so many people in our Heavenly Sacred Mountain every day?"
The middle-aged man said, "How is this possible! Isn't this the recent official war between the Guild and the Profound Sky Sect? A large number of Guild disciples have been summoned back to carry out missions. Everyone has more ways to obtain Starlight Coins, so naturally, there are more people here to cultivate."
"So that's the case. Thank you for your guidance, Senior Brother." Xiang Nan said.
The middle-aged man looked at Xiang Nan's polite words and called out to him as a senior brother. He was also very happy in his heart. He said, "Young man is a Son of Heaven Peak martial artist, right?"
"I advise you not to be dazed by the benefits of the Heavenly Sacred Mountain. Remember to take on missions that are beyond your capabilities."
After thanking the middle-aged man, Xiang Nan left the underground world and returned to the Son of Heaven Peak.
A staff member from Son of Heaven Peak informed him that he would have to wait for ten days before officially issuing the first round of missions.
Therefore, Xiang Nan could only return to the Wind Hall first.
By the eleventh day, even the latest martial artists had returned. At this moment, the Son of Heaven Peak was completely dark and filled with people.
The last time everyone was gathered here, they were all sloppy and looked like I was the biggest grandfather of the Heavens and Earth.
This time, the situation had greatly changed!
Every Son of Heaven Peak martial artist was excited. They wished they could rush into the battlefield and kill their enemies to exchange for Starlight Coins.
"Haha, you did a good job." Xiang Nan nodded slightly. The Star Guild used the Heavenly Sacred Mountain's reward to boost their morale. It was truly a good move.
The old man was already floating in the air, waiting for everyone to arrive. He nodded in satisfaction, "Looks like everyone's fighting spirit is very high."
"Since that's the case, there's no need to waste time. Let's start the assignment immediately."
"Everyone, follow me into the main hall."
The old man turned around and entered the palace behind him.
Xiang Nan and the others were also excited and hurriedly followed. This was the first time they had entered the "Immortal Palace" of the Son of Heaven Peak.
The interior of the palace was very spacious. It was obviously constructed according to a mission hall. At the same time, it could accommodate more than ten thousand people, and it seemed very empty.
On the four walls of the palace, there were enormous task signs.
However, there weren't many missions up there.
Xiang Nan glanced at it roughly, and it was only about twenty people.
And after each mission, there was a corresponding amount of reward. Of course, it was Starlight Coins.
