Phoenix Destiny Chapter 285
Chapter 285 - Level Up
The accumulated points that greeted Lu Mingshu as she entered the Heavenly Wheel gave her a pleasant surprise.
She could remember clearly that, the last time she was here, it was only seventy or so points, but now there was two hundred.
"Xiao Sang, why did I suddenly gain so many points?"
"Please find out on your own."
"…" Lu Mingshu recalled everything she went through. She entered the Heavenly Wheel before she went for the test at Jasper Sun Mountain, so she would have gained it during the trip. But what had she done? Was it because of her performance during the test, or was it when she was in the other world? Lu Mingshu somehow felt that it was the latter.
So they count things that happened in other worlds? Wow, I didn't know that the Heavenly Wheel would be that advanced.
As she thought about that, the Heavenly Wheel suddenly lit up brightly.
The light that hurt her eyes dispersed, and the light hovering around the Heavenly Wheel seemed to be way brighter than before. "Congratulations, you have been upgraded to level one, now the function to travel to other worlds has been activated." She could hear Xiao Sang speaking.
Lu Mingshu stared at what was in front of her blankly. She looked down to see her level, which was initially zero, had been changed to one now. "Xiao Sang, what you mean is that I can go to other worlds right now?"
"Yes," Xiao Sang replied. "Some more of the Heavenly Wheel's functions have been opened for you; now you can go to other worlds physically, without any restrictions."
Lu Mingshu recalled that, when she was a newbie, she was met with many constraints when she travelled to the other world and did not even go there physically. When she returned, she needed to fuse with her physical body to actually acquire the gains.
But now, she could physically go there, and Lu Mingshu immediately listed out the advantages. Firstly, the benefits she gained over there could immediately be reflected; there was no need to fuse with her physical body.
But of course, there were shortcomings too; if she injured herself or died over there, then she would be in big trouble.
Even with the shortcoming, she still preferred to go over physically. Who knew if just sending your soul over would have any backlashes as well? She still didn’t trust the Heavenly Wheel fully.
Lu Mingshu didn't try out the function now since she couldn’t just leave at the moment.
She opened up the exchange section in the Heavenly Wheel. Places that were originally gray had lit up.
She scanned around, and her eyes stopped at a section. "Xiao Sang, what does the lottery section do?"
"As you can see, you can draw a prize there," Xiao Sang responded in monotone. "The prizes aren't limited by level, which means you may get extremely rare items or even weapons. A hundred points per draw. If you level up, you will get a free chance."
How hard it was to accumulate a hundred points, Lu Mingshu understood it very clearly. It was hard to get chances like the one she got during the Qilin Festival. Within the half year since then, she only got a bit more than a hundred, and it was because of the Jasper Sun Mountain test.
"’May’?" Lu Mingshu asked. "So how high are the chances?"
"That's for you to find out."
Lu Mingshu bit her lips and pondered. The chances should be small. The Heavenly Wheel had divided its levels well, so if she could easily get things above her level, why would it need to limit her points? She did not have many points now, and it would be stupid to waste them on the lottery. It wasn’t urgent anyway, so it could wait until she gained more points in the future.
But I do have a free chance now, so let's try it out first.
She lightly tapped on a button, and a dim light flashed. The wooden wheel started spinning, and items started appearing in front of her one by one. There were books, spirit pills, weapons, and spirit items…
The wooden wheel got slower as time passed.
"The Eight Absurd Classics," the Deadly Pill, Raising Sun Umbrella…
The wooden wheel came to a stop, and the Raising Sun Umbrella changed to a charm.
"Congratulations, you won a Bring-a-Friend Charm." Xiao Sang's voice rang out across the Heavenly Wheel.
The charm separated itself from the wooden wheel and landed in Lu Mingshu's hand.
She lifted it up and realized it came with a small piece of paper that explained it's usage. Bring-a-Friend Charm: it wasn’t restricted by level, and it allowed one to bring a friend along for a trip.
Lu Mingshu furrowed her brows. "Xiao Sang, this is a bit… useless, huh?" The “trip” should be a trip to another world, but she could get a partner from the Heavenly Wheel who could go to other worlds freely like herself, so why would she need this?
"Please find out yourself," Xiao Sang answered.
Since she couldn't get any information from Xiao Sang, Lu Mingshu kept it just in case.
She looked around the exchange section and admired the new items before exiting. Her points were precious, so she would save them for a rainy day.
After she exited the Heavenly Wheel, she sat down and fished out the book of sword skills that she got from Jasper Sun Mountain.
Other than the things she earned while she was in the other world, she earned two gifts from the grandmaster: one was Little Boo and the other one was this book.
After such a long time, Lu Mingshu finally got time to look at the book.
As she read on, she got more and more serious.
No wonder Qiu Yu said that this book was good too and that one could only appreciate it after reading it. If it was someone else, they might find it confusing, but to Lu Mingshu, who had gained many insights thanks to the Heavenly Wheel, she could tell that it was not simply martial arts. To be exact, it was about sword cultivating.
The difference between simple martial arts and sword cultivation was that sword cultivation focused more on congealing energy and forming a sword embryo.
It was not impossible for Lu Mingshu to get methods of sword cultivation from other worlds, but this method used the base of martial arts for sword cultivation. In other words, Qiu Yu created this himself! She was from a world of martial arts, and by learning this technique, she could have a higher level of skill!
Lu Mingshu suddenly realized that when she, Zhou Ruying, and Ling Wuxia were sent to the other world, they were unable to use their mystic force, which forced them to pick up spirit energy in order to survive there. According to the book, by doing so, their mystic force would slowly evolve into something that had the characteristics of both mystic force and spirit energy: gentle but with a big impact. Is that why he sent us there?
Nan Ze's Sword God is indeed something.
Lu Mingshu took a deep breath and kept the book.
The skills she had now were passed on by Grandmaster Xiang. Speaking of skills, they weren't inferior compared to Nan Ze's Sword God’s method. However, Grandmaster Xiang’s methods were more classical and historical, which was different from this. Moreover, she wouldn’t need to start all over again, she just needed to learn how to evolve her mystic force and form a sword embryo.
I'm going to learn this!
Lu Mingshu kept the book calmly, planning her next steps. Since she had made up her mind, she started planning it out. First, I'll search for Xie Lianzhen. When that’s settled, I'll find a suitable place to pick this up as soon as possible. If I can from a sword embryo and evolve my mystic force before I break through, then I'll fear nothing even if I meet a real sword cultivator!
