After leaving Midnight Peak, Xiang Nan went straight to Heavenly Saint Mountain to cultivate.
All of the martial artists participating in the Soaring Dragon Sect's mission had received 50 Starlight Coins. In other words, they could go to the tenth floor of the Heavenly Saint Mountain and cultivate for five days. They would receive a total of 500 days of cultivation growth.
As for Xiang Nan, this amount would triple to a total of 1,500 days, which was equivalent to four years of cultivation.
However, these four years of cultivation were equivalent to a drop in the bucket for him.
After cultivating in seclusion, his True Body Realm had only reached the middle stage of the Ninth Heaven Scryer Stage.
"Not enough. It's really not enough. This level of improvement is too small." Xiang Nan shook his head, feeling very angry in his heart.
If every time he completed a mission, he would only receive a small increase in his cultivation, then how could that be possible?
If it was someone else, he would definitely be very satisfied. However, Xiang Nan's goal was different. His greatest enemy was Xuan Qingzhu.
Xuan Qingzhu was already an early Divine Martial Stage expert, but he was only at the ninth level of the Heaven Scryer Stage, and the gap was still too big.
"We have to take on higher-level missions." Xiang Nan muttered.
There were only two ways to advance faster. The first was to increase the number of World Exterminating Divine Lightning in his body and double his cultivation in the Heavenly Sacred Mountain.
At the same time, absorbing World Exterminating Divine Lightning could also increase Xiang Nan's cultivation base. However, World Exterminating Divine Lightning was something that could be encountered but not sought. How could it be so easy to obtain?
The only alternative was to accept higher-level missions and obtain more Starlight Coins.
With this thought in mind, Xiang Nan flew towards the mission hall of the Son of Heaven Peak and analyzed his current strength along the way.
"According to my current strength, I should be barely able to deal with a Good Fortune Third Stage martial artist. If I use all my trump cards, I can even take down a Good Fortune Fourth Stage martial artist."
Xiang Nan muttered.
The further back one went, the greater the gap between realms would be.
For example, in the Good Fortune Realm, killing the Good Fortune Second Layer with the Good Fortune First Layer is unimaginably difficult. It is almost the same as defeating an enemy with the Heaven Scryer Realm crossing three or four small realms.
Theoretically speaking, the higher a martial artist's realm was, the smaller the span of defeating an enemy across borders.
If a person could kill someone in the Heaven Origin Realm by crossing five small realms, then when they reached the Heaven Scryer Realm, they could only kill people in two small realms. When they reached the Good Fortune Realm, it would be difficult for them to even cross one realm.
This was because the difference between the first level of Good Fortune and the second level of Good Fortune was too great. The difference between the first level of Divine Martial Arts and the second level of Divine Martial Arts was even greater. The difference between the first level of Martial Sage and the second level of Martial Sage was unimaginable.
However, Xiang Nan had always maintained his cultivation that far surpassed others. He had all sorts of heaven-defying cultivation methods on his body, and he had obtained True Dragon Qi, a third dragon body, Heaven-shaking Saber, and World-destroying Divine Lightning.
At every stage, he had always maintained his strength, far surpassing that of a cultivator at the same realm. Even now, he was able to compete with a Fortune Fourth Stage martial artist.
If such a result were to be said, it would be extremely terrifying.
Xiang Nan weighed his strength and prepared to take on a higher-level mission.
However, after walking around the mission hall for half a day, he only discovered about twenty missions, none of which could satisfy him.
In this mission hall, the most difficult mission would receive 50 Starlight Coins, and further down, there would even be 20, 10, or even 7-8 Starlight Coins missions.
"This won't do!" Xiang Nan frowned. He found a staff member and wanted to accept higher-level missions.
However, the staff member shook his head and said, "No!"
Xiang Nanqi said, "I don't understand. How could there not be? Could it be that the Profound Sky Sect doesn't have any warriors above the Fortune Realm? This is impossible."
The missions in the mission hall were basically at the fifth to ninth level of Heaven Scryer. There was only one mission at the first level of Fortune that Xue Ziyan and the others had accepted. They had already gone to execute it.
The staff member shrugged and said helplessly, "If you are not satisfied, you can find the deacon of the Son of Heaven Peak. I am only responsible for issuing missions. I can't help you with anything else."
Unwilling, Xiang Nan went straight to the Temple of the Son of Heaven Peak and found the old deacon.
After knowing Xiang Nan's intentions, the old man smiled and said, "Xiang Bei, we really don't have any more missions in the Fortune Realm."
Xiang Nan sneered, "There are so many high-level martial artists in the Profound Sky Sect. Don't tell me they aren't active? Are they staying at home all day long?"
"Haha, I'm afraid it's not that I didn't receive the Good Fortune Realm mission, but that I refused to give it to us, right?"
Xiang Nan pointed into the distance and said, "I think there must be a lot of high-level missions for that Midnight Peak!"
The old man leaned back slightly and said, "If someone were to question me like this, I would have told him to get out of here, but since you asked him yourself, I can answer your questions."
The old man crossed his hands on the table, as if he was considering his own words for fear that he might accidentally reveal some secrets.
After thinking for a while, the old man said, "There is a question that you might not have expected. Do you know why there are so few Good Fortune Realm martial artists among the Son of Heaven Peak martial artists?"
Xiang Nan said, "If you have something to say, just say it. There's no need to ask and answer. I'll listen carefully."
The old man nodded and explained to Xiang Nan.
The righteous sects were truly unwilling to send more powerful martial artists to the Star Guild, because their own sects also needed to be developed.
If all the outstanding members of the sect were sent to the Star Guild to fight and kill, wouldn't their sect be destroyed?
This was because the sect had a foundation.
However, the dark forces were different. They did not have any so-called sect sites or inheritances. They were completely aiming for profit.
The sect wasn't willing to give more experts to the Star Guild, but the dark forces didn't care about this.
Therefore, the highest level of Son of Heaven Peak's martial practitioners was Xue Ziyan's pitiful 30-40 Fortune Realm martial practitioners.
However, there were countless Good Fortune Realm martial artists within Midnight Peak. Even Divine Martial Realm experts existed, but the Guild could not declare it to the public.
The old man's words confirmed the deacon's words.
The one who really helped the Guild deal with the big problem was actually Midnight Peak.
The old man added. They did not give up on Son of Heaven Peak, but they wanted to give Son of Heaven Peak martial artists better treatment, complete easier tasks, and obtain rewards.
If this example was set, then the disciples of the other sects would only send more people over when they saw that the Son of Heaven Peak martial practitioners had tasted the sweetness.
It's the same as lying to a child. In a group of children, you should trick two of them first and give them some candy. Only then will the other children be willing to follow you.
For this reason, the Star Guild could not hand over more dangerous tasks to Son of Heaven Feng.
The old man adjusted his sitting posture and said, "You should understand now, right?"
Xiang Nan nodded and said, "The more you speak, the more I feel that you really treat me and the other Son of Heaven Peak martial artists as greenhouse flowers."
Xiang Nan knocked on the table with his hand and said, "I came to the Star Guild to fight! I'm not here to set a beautiful example for others to see!"
"If I don't get the battle I want here, I can only choose to leave."
In the end, the Star Guild still looked down on Son of Heaven Peak.
Xiang Nan didn't want to do that kind of work of art that was covered in wreaths and held high up in the air for others to observe.
What he wanted was a battle! It was iron, it was blood!
