Xiang Nan tried to touch three brocade boxes in a row. All three brocade boxes were like this!
He went to touch the Ninth Grade medicinal pill brocade box on the third bookshelf, hoping that such a high grade medicinal pill could be preserved.
However, the result made Xiang Nan want to cry, but he still couldn't!
No medicinal pill can be preserved for hundreds of millions of years!
Even the hundreds of millions of years had been guessed by the Great Snake. Perhaps this civilization was billions or tens of billions of years away from today.
He was guarding a golden mountain, but he was unable to mine it! How painful it was to comprehend.
The serpent sighed, "This is a vacuum universe. Because there is no wind, all of these things can remain the same. However, the slightest touch will immediately disperse."
"Forget it. Even if you have a way to pick up these pills, you won't be able to eat them. All you swallow is a handful of ashes."
Xiang Nan helplessly flew out of the Good Fortune Hall, and then found another Divine Secrets Hall. He was too lazy to even enter here.
The reason for that was because the two swords that were placed at the entrance of the Divine Secrets Hall had also completely turned into sand.
Even the severely corroded pills couldn't be eaten, and the severely corroded weapons were even more useless. One had to know that weapons were used to chop them down.
In the end, he arrived in front of an inner palace. The name of this inner palace was only one word, and it was called "Dao".
"It might be a martial skill." Xiang Nan's mind lit up. He touched the door, causing it to desert before slowly flying in.
He was careful.
However, the scene inside caused him to feel utter despair.
This place was already destroyed. Unlike the Good Fortune Hall's Divine Secrets Hall, this place was destroyed by someone.
It was obvious that there were a large number of martial skills hidden here, but for some unknown reason, all of them were burned by this civilized martial artist at the last moment.
The scattered wooden shelves, the dilapidated books that had been burned to ashes, were all over the ground, not a single one of them complete.
But at this moment, Xiang Nan sensed that something was shaking in the storage ring.
He glanced at the storage ring and discovered that it was the black book!
"This book … seems to have sensed something." Xiang Nan curiously moved left and right. The brightness of the black book did not change, and then moved back and forth. As a result, he discovered that when he retreated, the light of the black book became a little stronger.
"Something! Something is related to this black book!" Xiang Nan became excited again.
He retreated all the way, and the black book grew brighter and brighter.
He retreated to a corner of the huge palace and discovered that this should be the residence of the martial artists.
In the residence of a high elder, Xiang Nan discovered the source of the black book's senses.
It was a human skeleton. The skeleton was still intact, but there was a book on the skeleton's hand bone.
Judging from the battle described in the mural, when the lightning bull attacked, its lightning power instantly vaporized all the martial artists, leaving no corpses behind.
The fact that this corpse still existed meant that his realm was extremely high. At the very least, he hadn't been electrocuted to vaporization by the giant bull.
The corpse was holding a book in his left hand and raising his right hand high. This was his last move before he died.
"This is very unusual." The serpent's tone became solemn. "All the books in the Dao Palace were destroyed, but this book was placed in his bedroom."
"It means that this book originally did not belong to the Dao Palace. It should have been created by him. Before he died, he rushed back to destroy this book. However, before he could finish, he died first."
Xiang Nan deeply believed that this corpse's actions were clearly intended to destroy this book.
"Hu" Xiang Nan let out a long sigh. Fortunately, he didn't get nowhere.
Millions of Heavenly Tribulation Realm experts were born in such a splendid martial civilization. It would be a pity if no culture was passed down.
Xiang Nan consciously went to get the book, and the big snake shouted, "Are you crazy? Touching this book will destroy it."
Xiang Nan hurriedly withdrew his hand and said, "Too excited. I almost ruined something big."
The serpent said, "Books are different from other things. Although this book has been completely disintegrated in nature, as long as you don't destroy it, you can still read the handwriting inside."
"However, you can't flip through it. Use your lightning vision to see through it."
Xiang Nan had already thought of this point. Before Big Snake could say anything, he had already condensed his Lightning Photoelectric Eyes.
Through Lei Liangyan's eyes, he really saw through the surface of the book and saw the dense, overlapping words inside.
Because the book hadn't been opened, the text on each page was stacked together. The text on the first and second pages and the text on the fourth page of the third page completely overlapped, making it extremely difficult to read.
In Xiang Nan's eyes, it was a blurry black mass.
"Precision perspective!" The serpent said, "Control the depth of the perspective to be as thin as a sheet of paper. Let's look at the first page first."
Xiang Nan had never done this before, nor did he have any experience. He could only give it a try and see if he could succeed.
Fortunately, accurate clairvoyance was a process of weakening his vision. He only needed to weaken his lightning vision to the limit. The more he weakened it, the shorter the distance he could read and the thinner the page he could read.
After he shortened the distance between Lei Liangyan's eyes, he happened to see the first page under the cover of the book and stopped.
There were some irregular notes, the creator of the book, a general description of the book.
At the top, there were only two words, "inheritance."
Next, the following small words explain the book as a whole.
This book was indeed a cultivation method, and it was also a rare "divine grade" cultivation method.
Xiang Nan's heart almost stopped beating.
Divine Grade Cultivation Technique!
This book was called Nether Ghost State. The original heart was actually created for the sake of inheritance, but after it was created, the creator of this book discovered its exceptionally evil side.
This was because the Netherworld Ghost Stage Technique could directly absorb the cultivation of other martial artists!
The original intention of the creator was that when a powerful expert was about to die, he could pass down his cultivation to his descendants for the rest of his life without causing them to waste. However, another function of the creator was to forcefully deprive others of their cultivation. This was a miraculous merit of good and evil.
The reason why the black book was related to this cultivation method was because this cultivation method was based on the black book. In other words, without the black book in hand, it was impossible to cultivate such a cultivation method.
The reason for that was because the power of the Netherspirit State was not spiritual energy, nor was it something like astral energy or lightning energy. Instead, it originated from a type of attribute of the black book itself.
In order to cultivate the Nether Ghost Stage, a martial artist needed to establish a connection with the black book, providing a corresponding incantation within the cultivation technique.
However, humans were unable to withstand the power of the Black Book's attributes, so cultivating this technique required the use of an avatar.
The specific method was for the martial artist to have his avatar cultivate the Netherspirit Stage. After that, he would have the avatar hold the black book in one hand and touch the spirit sea of the enemy with the other, absorbing all of the enemy's cultivation.
Therefore, the so-called "Divine Grade Cultivation Technique" could be understood in this way. This Nether Ghost Stage itself did not have any grade. The real divine grade was actually the Black Book itself.
Regarding absorption, the law of absorption was also given in the cultivation method.
A martial artist could only absorb a person with a higher cultivation realm than himself, and no matter how high the enemy's cultivation realm was, he could only absorb the same amount of cultivation as a cultivator.
To put it bluntly, Xiang Nan was currently at the 1st level of the Divine Martial Stage. According to the realm ladder, he needed to absorb five or more Divine Martial Stage 1 martial artists, and he would be able to advance to the 2nd level of the Divine Martial Stage.
However, even if he had absorbed five ninth level Heavenly Tribulation martial artists, he would still only be able to advance to the second level of Divine Martial Arts, because he could only digest the same amount of cultivation as himself.
Furthermore, what was promoted was not the martial artist himself, but the clone of the martial artist.
"This technique is quite evil, but I don't have an avatar." Xiang Nan was in a difficult situation.
He had an avatar, but the avatar and avatar were two different concepts.
The avatar was an independent living body separated from the human body, and that was what was called an avatar.
Xiang Nan's could only be called an avatar. What he separated was not a self-surviving individual, but rather a temporary replica. After a long time, it would disappear on its own.
The bigger difference was that after the avatar was created, it didn't carry any martial artist's own abilities. It started cultivating from the first level of Body Tempering.
However, the avatars outside were different. As strong as a martial artist was, the avatars they separated out were as strong as they could be.
"You don't have an avatar, but you have a dream body," said the serpent.
