Xiang Nan only had ten Inferior Grade Sacred Spirit Stones. Adding on the fragments he had collected from the Tree Demon's body, he only had a total of eleven.
To level up to the second level of the Divine Martial Arts, one was needed, two were needed from the second level to the third level, four were needed from the third level to the fourth level, and eight were needed from the fourth level to the fifth level.
Xiang Nan's Inferior Grade Sacred Spirit Stones were only enough to raise the dream body to the fourth level of the Divine Martial Arts.
As for the rest, consuming high-grade Saint Spirit Stones was too wasteful. After leaving the Eternal Secret Realm, he would have to exchange them for low-grade Saint Spirit Stones and absorb them.
After a while, Wang Chongfeng did not return.
It was unknown if he had been killed by the demons, or if he was on his way to chase after the Spirit Void Pill. The limit of ten minutes for the Spirit Void Pill had expired and he had disappeared on his own, causing Wang Chongfeng to start searching aimlessly in the Eternal Secret Realm.
No matter what, it was a good thing that he didn't come back.
Xiang Nan had escaped from the dream world, and his true body was still nailed by the two silver needles, unable to move on the ice cap.
With a thought, Xiang Nan asked the little bug to pull out the silver needle for him.
As a result, with the strength of the little bug Golden Blood Vicious Beast and Martial Sage Level 2, they were unable to shake the silver needle at all!
"This is terrible!" Xiang Nan said helplessly, "The silver needle that the eighth level Heavenly Tribulation expert nailed to me can't be pulled out at all."
"If we wait for the aura in the silver needle to slowly dissipate, we don't know how long we'll have to wait."
The big snake said, "You stupid brat, shouldn't you just break the ice?"
Xiang Nan was stunned and said, "Eh, well, I was stupid."
He had the little bug shatter the ice, and he had successfully stood up.
The silver needle was inserted into the ice, which was easy to do.
However, after the ice cap shattered, the two silver needles were still inserted into Xiang Nan's arm and could not be pulled out.
Now, it was really troublesome. His legs had been bitten off by the Ice-kissed Fish, and his arms had been nailed down by silver needles. It was equivalent to not being able to use all his limbs.
Xiang Nan immediately asked the little bug to carry him up and run towards the north.
On the other hand, he ate the Spiritual Void Pill on the bug's back.
Refining the Spirit Void Pill was also a relatively long process. The spirituality of this kind of pill was too great.
Fortunately, in the following period of time, Xiang Nan did not encounter any other enemies, and the Spirit Void Pill was finally refined clean.
At that moment, Xiang Nan's body underwent the same transformation as his dream body.
He felt that his body had risen to an incomprehensible and unprecedented height! This was not the kind of physical fitness a human should possess.
Although he had seen it once, Xiang Nan still looked at his hands and arms in disbelief.
He tried to pinch the little bug's arm with his hand and found that it could be pinched!
This meant that Xiang Nan's physique was already neck and neck with the little bug!
Although his arms were pinned down, preventing the thunder energy from circulating smoothly, his fingers and palms were still able to move. The two silver needles only pinned down Xiang Nan's meridians.
At the same time, Xiang Nan's realm had also fallen back to the first level of the Divine Martial Arts, just like the Dream Body.
His arms were nailed, so it was impossible for him to absorb the Holy Spirit Stone with his hands. He directly ate the Holy Spirit Stone into his mouth and swallowed it down to absorb it.
Similarly, after absorbing seven Inferior Grade Sacred Spirit Stones, his realm returned to the fourth level of Divine Martial Arts.
At this moment, he couldn't wait to leave this place and exchange for five high-grade Holy Spirit Stones to restore his cultivation to its peak state.
Five high-grade Sacred Spirit Stones was equivalent to five hundred low-grade Sacred Spirit Stones. To upgrade from the fourth level of the Divine realm to the first level of the Martial Saint realm, a total of 504 Sacred Spirit Stones were required.
Coincidentally, he had absorbed seven of the eleven Inferior Grade Sacred Spirit Stones, leaving four remaining! A total of 504!
As long as he left this place, he would be able to enter the realm of Martial Sage.
However, this was only an ideal situation, because there was a fee to be charged for exchanging for Holy Spirit Stones in the outside world.
"Eh? The silver needles are slowly weakening." "The cold is gone," Xiang Nanqi said.
He felt that the two silver needles that had been sturdy earlier had actually accelerated the consumption of Astral Qi after possessing a body similar to that of a dragon!
"At this rate, two silver needles will fall off in three to four days." Xiang Nan said in surprise.
The serpent said, "It must be because your body has become stronger, causing the extreme cold here to no longer be so severe for you."
The little bug was running like flying on the ice. He was not affected by the extreme cold. At the very least, the impact was very small.
"If I knew this would happen, I wouldn't have wasted any effort walking by myself and just let the little bug carry me on its back." Xiang Nan shook his head.
However, this was still useless. If Wang Chongfeng discovered Xiang Nan and wanted to capture him, he wouldn't be able to escape Wang Chongfeng's pursuit at the speed of a bug.
Even if he could escape, Xiang Nan would not be able to obtain the Spirit Void Pill.
It could only be said that everything was fate.
Two days later.
A strange movement appeared in Xiang Nan's arms.
He hurriedly opened his clothes and found that the small eggshell in his arms had cracked. The little bird was stretching out its arms to breathe heavily.
However, this little fellow's body was covered in a layer of snow-white skin, and there were golden patterns on it.
"Did you really turn into a little golden-blooded bird?" Xiang Nanqi said.
The most unbelievable thing was that Little Sparrow, who had drunk the blood of the Golden Blood Vicious Beast, had also advanced by leaps and bounds. He had already leapt from the third level of the Divine Martial Arts to the Martial Sage realm!
"This span … isn't it a bit too big?" Xiang Nan was shocked.
The serpent said, "Mm … It should be the Little Sparrow Transformation, which provided a portion of his cultivation level increase, and the Golden Blood also increased his cultivation level by a portion, causing him to directly advance to Martial Sage."
Xiang Nan suddenly nodded. He remembered that if the little bird swallowed the fierce beast, it would be able to raise its cultivation level by itself. Previously, drinking the blood of the golden-blooded fierce beast had increased even more shockingly.
"Damn it, I'm the only one with the lowest cultivation." Xiang Nan shook his head speechlessly.
Big Snake was at Martial Saint Level 1, Little Bug was at Martial Saint Level 2, and even Little Sparrow was now at Martial Saint Level 1. Only he was still struggling in the goddamn Divine Martial Realm.
"Is this … your skin, or is it a real shell? Can you take it off?"
Curiously, Xiang Nan knocked on the little bird's helmet twice, making a dull sound.
The little bird scratched its head and waited for its big round eyes to look at Xiang Nan.
The little fellow scratched his head, but the helmet creaked.
"Can you take it off?" Xiang Nan hugged Little Sparrow's helmet and lifted it up.
As a result, there was no movement.
"What skin!" Xiang Nanqi said.
This layer of snow-white armor had already become a part of the little bird's body?
The little bird tilted its head to look at Xiang Nan and said, "What knock! Fight!" Knock what, hit you!
Xiang Nan smiled bitterly and said, "I only hope that you won't be like a ferocious beast that can't leave the secret realm."
"Kid Xiang Nan, there's an extremely strong Earth Elemental fluctuation ahead!" The big snake suddenly said.
Xiang Nan immediately ordered the little bug to stop. He carefully looked into the distance and said, "Dragon Scale?"
Right in front of him was an incomparably large barrier.
The barrier could not be seen to the left or right, nor could it be seen to the top, giving people the feeling that they had reached the end of the world.
However, upon closer inspection, one could tell that it was actually a huge iceberg.
Due to the continuous snowstorms, Xiang Nan could not see the iceberg clearly in the distance. As a result, he suddenly discovered that the iceberg was so huge that he lost the visual process of the iceberg becoming bigger and bigger halfway through.
"I finally found it." Xiang Nan let out a long sigh of relief.
After returning to the human world, he would use the Holy Spirit Stone to advance to the first level of the Martial Saint realm, and the Fallen Heavenly Lightning to the third or fourth level of the Martial Saint realm.
The harvest of this trip was not small.
