Ancient Strengthening Technique Chapter 1031-1032
AST 1031 – Powerful Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation, Manifestation of the Buddha’s True Eyes
"Qing Shui, only those whose spirit energy has reached over 10,000 stars can cultivate this secret spirit technique, Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation!"
When Qing Shui saw the beast image on the opponent's body he was also taken aback. The image was full of spirit energy. It was only after hearing the old man's words that he did understand that this was a secret spirit technique that required the user to have a spirit energy which exceeded 10,000 stars. It seemed that the old man's spirit energy had already exceeded 10,000 stars.
Qing Shui wasn't very clear about the level of his spirit energy. The cultivation that he would usually assess didn't include one's spirit energy. When a cultivator attained a breakthrough, their abilities would be raised, including their spirit energy. However, the increment in one's spirit energy was very low compared to one's cultivation, unless it was a breakthrough attained when cultivating one's spirit energy. For example a breakthrough to Qing Shui's Yin-Yang Image, Heart of Roc…
Qing Shui wasn't afraid of the old man's spirit energy attacks. Even if he had a spirit energy of 10,000 stars, he would only be able to assert about 3,000 stars here…
Qing Shui wanted to laugh at this thought. The Arhat Rosary Beads was very powerful and so was the Spirited Snake Turtle. It was only now that Qing Shui truly appreciated the heaven-defying abilities of the Sacred Items of Heaven and Earth.
At their level, it seemed that many martial techniques had a requirement for one's spirit energy. Moreover, spirit energy would also be one's primary area of cultivation. It could also be said that the prowess of many martial techniques laid in the existence of spirit energy. Therefore, people of this level would choose to cultivate their spirit energy, since this would allow them to fend off attacks using spirit energy.
Qing Shui wasn't worried. His Emperor's Qi was an absolutely domineering existence. The 20% weakening impact even included one's spirit energy. He had tested this out before. Having a 20% weakening effect applied onto oneself would cause them to be weakened by a lot. If they were to know of this, they would probably feel extremely agonized.
Area Dominance and State of One with Elephant were already circulated by Qing Shui.
Instantaneous Dragon Elephant Evasion!
Qing Shui performed the simplest Combination Sword Technique with his Big Dipper Sword. This time around, his speed was amazingly fast. Qing Shui had yet to give up.
Art of Pursuing!
When the other party performed the Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation, Qing Shui could already sense that his defense had been strengthened. That was an overall increase in defense, which was applicable to both physical attacks and spirit energy attacks as well.
Qing Shui retreated rapidly. His attack had struck that phantom image, but it didn't seem to have any impact. The opponent's Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation was much stronger than the Buddha Aura Great Illumination Formation set up by the ten Elders he had killed.
This was the first time that Qing Shui had come across and fought against the Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation. Such secret spirit techniques were very powerful and it had exceeded Qing Shui's expectations.
The phantom image let out a loud roar and a faint ray of light flashed. All of the negative effects that he had applied disappeared. Qing Shui's eyes popped out. What was this? Was this Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation dead or alive…
"Take my Great Golden Buddha Palm!"
The old man waved his five-colored cane and a huge golden colored hand made a grabbing motion towards Qing Shui. The handprint was like a small mountain and each finger like a mountain peak. However, the hand was extremely vivid and the explosive spirit energy that it caused one to feel great fear.
Qing Shui frowned. The Great Golden Buddha Palm performed now was much stronger than before. There were probably not many people in the five continents who could take this hit. It was a pity that the old man was up against Qing Shui today.
A formless spirit energy turned into a whirlwind right in front of Qing Shui. This whirlwind met the golden Buddha palm in the air. It encompassed the palm and spun around it, as if gradually devouring the palm.
A loud explosion rang out before things calmed down. Qing Shui wore a faint smile. This was the first time that he had faced an opponent heads-on with spirit energy.
The old man was extremely astonished. His best skills were spirit energy attacks. That, together with his powerful Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation allowed him to be at the very top of the pyramid in the five continents. His position in the Buddha Sect was the most unique and he was also the strongest in the sect.
The members of Buddha Sect weren't the only ones watching the battle. There was also Demon Gate, Tang Manor, Dragon Emperor Mountain… It was just that they didn't show themselves, but stood a distance away.
Great Golden Buddha Palm!
The old man waved his hand again. This time, two huge palms grabbed out towards Qing Shui. A series of explosions broke out wherever the palms passed by. When compared to before, the confining strength was even stronger this time around.
Buddha’s True Eyes!
When Qing Shui performed Buddha’s True Eyes, the familiar wave didn’t appear. Just as he was feeling astonished, he felt a spiritual wave coming from behind him. It was extremely strong and familiar.
Qing Shui turned to see a huge Buddha image behind him. This wasn’t his first time seeing it. In the past, he had seen this Buddha image which exuded a glow and its eyes were always closed. But right now, its eyes had opened. In that moment, the pair of golden colored eyes made Qing Shui feel overwhelmed.
This pair of eyes were righteous, respectable, holy, sympathetic…
A formless power crushed the golden Buddha hands that were gushing over. Both Qing Shui and the old man opposite him were stunned.
Although Qing Shui was stunned, he was even more joyful. He had never understood what the Buddha image behind him was and he still didn’t know yet. After it had saved him in critical moments multiple times, he felt that it was related to his cultivation of the Thousand Buddha Palm Imprint or perhaps the Nine Waves Great Golden Buddha Palm.
Furthermore, Qing Shui used to be the only one who could see it, but he felt that the old man had seen it too. Was it because one’s spirit energy must be at a certain level before they could see it? Or maybe all those who knew Buddha’s True Eyes could see it…
In fact, Qing Shui had always found it strange that he hadn’t been able to produce golden colored palms with his Nine Waves Great Golden Buddha Palm. He didn’t know why. Additionally, there was still the Sword of Sixth Waves which was modified from it. Why was it called the Great Golden Buddha Palm, but yet he could not produce golden palms?
Right now, Qing Shui knew that the Great Golden Buddha Palm which the old man had performed was his Nine Waves Great Golden Buddha Palm. It was just that because Qing Shui had used it in the form of the Sword of Sixth Waves that the other party hadn't realized it yet.
Qing Shui saw that although the old man was using the five-colored cane, he had managed to produce the Great Golden Buddha Palms. Could it be that the Nine Waves Great Golden Buddha Palm also required the usage of spirit energy?
This was something interesting which Qing Shui hadn’t thought of before. His spirit energy was very powerful, but he hadn’t thought of using spirit energy to perform the Nine Waves Great Golden Buddha Palm. It seemed that he could try this out in the future. Qing Shui thought of the Great Golden Buddha Palm which the old man had just performed. Qing Shui’s spirit energy was stronger than the old man. If he could produce the Great Golden Buddha Palms, then his cultivation would also increase by another notch. Moreover, he had the Nine Yang Buddha Body… Would it make him more suitable to cultivate this battle technique?
The old man was stunned for very a long time. Buddha’s True Eyes. To be able to cultivate the Buddha’s True Eyes to the extent that it manifested was truly too terrifying. This was when the skill could be considered to have reached its highest level. With the support of spirit energy, the Buddha’s True Eyes could see through all disguises and unleash attacks through its eyes. It could attack the opponent’s 'soul' and cause spiritual damage. In serious cases, it could leave the opponent in a state like they had lost their soul.
That huge Great Golden Buddha Palm was also considered a disguise. As long as Qing Shui had sufficient spirit energy, he would be able to break through them. Spirit energy attacks were more troublesome than physical attacks since they lacked form. They were like fire. While you could pass your hand through flames and not sustain any injuries, fire cannot pass through your palms unless it burns a hole through it.
It’s also with the same theory that allowed attacks that used spirit energy to catch people unaware. The only exception that allowed one to fend off spirit energy attacks was strength. You only had a chance if you were stronger than the opponent. Spirit energy attacks held an advantage since it could be used for long range attacks, which was the reason why cultivators tended to be unwilling to deal with people who excelled in the use of spirit energy. If they weren’t careful, they might end up dead without knowing how they were killed.
Great Golden Buddha Palm, Fourth Wave!
Astonished, the old man waved his five-colored cane once again, creating four Golden Buddha Palms, each one of them stronger than the one before.
It really was the Nine Waves Great Golden Buddha Palm.
The more Qing Shui saw how powerful the Great Golden Buddha Palm was, the happier he felt. When this old man performed the Great Golden Buddha Palm, the palms were not only huge, but they could also be used for confinement. If one had sufficient strength, he could crush and whack his opponent to their death. It was unlike how Qing Shui could only use it for slapping his opponents. He couldn’t even create any palms. It was just that there was the Wave Essence in the strength of his attacks.
The path of cultivation was very profound and this allowed Qing Shui to know that it was good to get more exposure to things. It would save him from making many detours and could also let his cultivation grow faster. If it wasn’t for what he had seen today, he wouldn’t have known that he could use spirit energy to perform the Great Golden Buddha Palm.
Sword of Sixth Wave!
Qing Shui slashed out with his Big Dipper Sword once again.
Although attacks using spirit energy were like how one’s hand passed through flames, if the power was strong enough, the hand could extinguish the flames. It was like how Qing Shui used his full powers to perform the Sword of Sixth Wave now.
Consecutive explosive sounds rang out and the golden hand continued to burst. One, two…
When all four hand imprints had disappeared, Qing Shui realized that his Sword of Sixth Waves had nicely fended off the opponent's four golden hands.
What did this represent?
It meant that the prowess of the opponent's fourth wave had the same prowess as his sixth wave…
The phantom image which encompassed the old man let out a loud roar and golden speckles of light started to appear upon the old man’s body.
Right now, Qing Shui had gotten increasingly interested in this Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation. This huge phantom image seemed to be very practical, since he could sense that its loud roar from earlier had not only increased the old man’s strength, it had also recovered a large portion of his depleted energy.
Great Golden Buddha Palm, Fifth Wave!
The old man’s five-colored cane was gradually raised!
Qing Shui smiled and instantly, a huge Primordial Flame Whip appeared in his hand. It was about 50 meters long and was as thick as an adult’s wrist. It was rustic and unsophisticated, with an ancient feeling. It was like a gray-colored ancient python, exuding a cold and dangerous aura.
Qing Shui had tried it earlier and found that his Big Dipper Sword wasn’t able to break through the Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation. Therefore, since the fight had carried on for such a long time, he felt that it was about time to end it.
The Fifth Wave of the Great Golden Buddha Palm was greatly beyond the Fourth Wave. Its speed was also much faster.
Fire Snakes Frenzied Dance!
Qing Shui raised his hand and at this moment, the 50 meters long Primordial Flame Whip seemed to come alive. It meandered as it charged out toward the Great Golden Buddha Palms!
What was it like to have an overwhelming crushing force? Although the last two Great Golden Buddha Palms had depleted ten meters of the Primordial Flame Whip, it only took an instant for it to recovered and become as fresh as before.
Right now, Qing Shui’s spirit energy had depleted to less than one-third of his usual amount and his rate of recovery was also very fast. He also had the Yin-Yang Image and the Arhat Rosary Beads. Furthermore, the spirit energy in his consciousness had formed a pellet. Not many people could attain the level in which they could form a pellet in their consciousness. Even the old man that Qing Shui was dealing with had yet to reach such a level.
It seemed like there wasn’t a need for his trump card in the Central Palace Blood Essence Pool.
After breaking through the opponent’s Great Golden Buddha Palm, Qing Shui lashed out with his Primordial Flame Whip in a flash towards the phantom image of the huge 'Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation'.

AST 1032 – Complete Nine Waves of the Great Golden Buddha Palm, Cultivation
A deafening roar rang out, causing Qing Shui to be astonished once again. This Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation technique was truly amazing and it wouldn't even lose out to a Divine Artifact. He couldn't help but ask, "Sir, what kind of thing is this Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation?"
Qing Shui continued to lash out with his whip as he spoke. The appearance of the phantom image grew increasingly weaker.
"Wait, wait, can I throw in the towel?" the old man said bitterly and anxiously.
Qing Shui didn't put down the whip, but smiled and said, "We can stop the fight, but you'll need to agree to a few conditions."
The old man let out a sigh, "I know that you're a man of your words. This old man trusts you. I can give you my word, but I hope that you can lend a hand when the Buddha Sect is in danger. Of course, no one can force you. It'll be subjected to your convenience. This is voluntary."
The old man was trying to get an additional insurance, though it should be sufficient with Little Fatty around. Therefore, when Qing Shui brought up the conditions, he could increase the playing cards that he had.
Although the old man said this, there was room for discussion. He knew that he wasn't in a position to negotiate with Qing Shui. After having lived for so long, how could he not understand this?
"Alright!" hearing the old man's words Qing Shui didn't say anything, but just smiled and agreed.
"This is the thing that you want. Huoyun Peng is free." The old man tossed Qing Shui an Interspatial Silk Sachet and his five-colored cane as well.
Qing Shui accepted theses things calmly, not finding this to be a surprise. Everything had ended and Huoyun Peng was free. Liu-Li should now be able to put down the matter that was burdening her.
This was a mental burden. After all, so many years had passed and she would still have to live on regardless of whether she could find her birth parents. Although Huoyun Liu-Li had no feelings toward her birth parents, she had met her mother, her birth mother. Bloodkin were still blood kin. It was said that when two blood kin appeared next to each other, there would be an amazing feeling. This had nothing to do with whether they were parent and child or siblings. It was the connection of their bloodline.
Liu-Li's mental burden could now be released. Qing Shui knew how such burdens felt. He didn't stand on ceremony and looked through the items in the Interspatial Silk Sachet. When he saw a black book which exuded a glow, he smiled. It was because the words Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation were written on it.
This was the thing that Qing Shui was interested in the most. Other than this, there was also the Great Golden Buddha Palm and Buddha Aura Great Illumination Formation. There was also quite a large variety of precious metals, medicinal herbs and stuff like that. He tossed the five-colored cane and the Interspatial Silk Sachet into the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
Don’t think of Qing Shui as harsh. This was a world where the strong survived. He could be considered to have done a favor to the old man by not killing him. If not for Little Fatty, he wouldn’t have done so. Qing Shui wouldn’t even care if they were from the Huoyun Clan. Towards people who were thinking of killing his women, how could Qing Shui possibly let them off?
With Little Fatty, Qing Shui had long planned to take over control of Buddha Sect, but he knew that it would be very difficult to accomplish. Therefore, Qing Shui knew that Little Fatty played a very important role.
Although it was very difficult for him to be able to control Buddha Sect, it wasn’t the same with Little Fatty. In the future, as long as Little Fatty could get strong enough, he would be able to gain control over the Buddha Sect’s Supreme Elder Group. This was Buddha Sect’s most powerful existence and Diamond Reverend was one of the members of this group.
People in the Elder Association would also hope to get into the Supreme Elder Group in the future. Only after entering this group would they consider if they wished to enter the other four continents. However, those who had entered the Supreme Elder Group tended to be of a very old age with not a lot of lifespan left. Therefore, many of them wouldn’t think of moving onto the other four continents.
“Later on, I’ll go meet Huoyun Peng with someone,” Qing Shui smiled and said to the old man.
The old man nodded. His skinny body seemed to have aged a lot suddenly. However, he seemed to finally be able to let go a lot of things as well. He looked toward Little Fatty, “Little Fatty, you can decide for yourself if you wish to follow Qing Shui or to stay in Buddha Sect. Upon my death, you’ll be named the Supreme Grand Elder directly. Work hard in your cultivation. I’ll give your Master all the things that you’ll need.”
He knew that Little Fatty was an honest and sincere person. No matter what, Buddha Sect hadn’t treated him badly and he knew that Little Fatty wouldn’t abandon the sect.
The nine branches in Buddha Sect, like the Diamond Sect and the Buddha Sword Sect, were basically aristocrat clans. Additionally, Joyous Meditation Sect was even a sect who specialized in Duo Cultivation. This really astonished Qing Shui, especially the way the monks in Joyous Meditation Sect dressed up. The people from this branches didn’t appear too different from ordinary people. The only notable difference was their clothes that were like monk robes.
The people from Buddha Sect returned and Qing Shui was elated when he saw Little Fatty next to him. He hadn’t expected that this time around, Little Fatty would play such a crucial role against Buddha Sect. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have been able to settle things relatively peacefully.
It was because Little Fatty had made his stand and gotten the old man to take a step back. However, in the end, Qing Shui still relied on his own strength. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be possible to turn the situation around. Little Fatty speaking up only allowed the problem to be settled relatively peacefully.
“Come, let’s go home first!” Qing Shui said happily toward Little Fatty.
“Brother Qing Shui, the Qing Clan has a home here too?” Little Fatty said with joyful surprise.
“We’ve just bought it. In the future, this place will also be one of the Qing Clan’s residence.” Qing Shui led Little Fatty back towards the Qing Clan.
The place where they had fought was only a little distance away from the Qing Clan and they reached the residence very soon. Qing Shui removed the formation since everything had been settled. He saw the members of the Qing Clan at the door and Huoyun Liu-Li ran over with Qing Yu in her hands.
“Alright, Liu-Li, we’ll go meet Senior Huoyun in a while.”
“Mmm!” Huoyun Liu-Li nodded fiercely, tears trickling down non-stop from her face.
Many people from the Qing Clan had seen this big fatty who had a burly build and was like a giant. After all, it was hard to ignore such a big existence. The longer they looked at him, the more familiar they found him to be.
“Aunty, Sister Qing Bei…”
Back when Little Fatty was at the Qing Clan, there were only a small amount of people in the Qing Clan. Right now however, there were some few unparalleled beauties and children. Therefore, Little Fatty went into a daze, not knowing what to say.
Little Fatty felt very agitated when he saw the people from the Qing Clan. When he saw Qing Yi, he even knelt down and kowtowed respectfully. Back when he was in the Qing Clan, Qing Yi had treated him like her own son.
“Little Fatty, get up. What are you doing?” Qing Yi quickly helped Little Fatty up.
“Aunty and the Qing Clan had treated Little Fatty well. I had to make this kowtow.”
“Wow, you’re really Little Fatty!” Qing Bei also shouted out happily. Qing You and the others were also very agitated. After all, it had been close to 20 years since they had last seen each other.
Qing Shui saw that Little Fatty had kowtowed to his mother. Back then, he had heard that Little Fatty had kowtowed to her before he had left. Now that he came back after all these years, he did it once again. Qing Shui could sense that Little Fatty’s emotions were very pure.
“Mother, didn’t you always say that just one son is too little? Why don’t you take Little Fatty as your son as well?” Qing Shui smiled and said in a relaxed manner.
Qing Yi also smiled, “If Little Fatty is willing, I’m more than happy to have one more son.”
“I’m willing! … Foster mother!”
Little Fatty once again respectfully dropped down to his knees and made nine kowtows.
Qing Shui introduced his family members to Little Fatty. Knowing that Qing Shui had gotten himself a few wives, Little Fatty happily addressed each of them as sister-in-law.
The family happily headed for the Qing Clan. Everything had ended well, and they had also brought up the story of Huoyun Liu-Li’s parents. It was only now that Little Fatty understood what the story was.
Qing Shui had wanted to head to the Buddha Sword Sect with Huoyun Liu-Li, but after looking at the time, he decided to head over the next day.
Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal!
After Qing Shui entered the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal, he couldn’t wait to check out the stuff the old man had given him. The thing he was most interested in was the Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation. He picked up the book and read it.
Qing Shui was stunned. This Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation was an assemblage battle technique. When one succeeded in cultivating it, they would reach a phase where they would awaken a Beast Armor, and would have to choose a beast variety. For example, the old man’s phantom image was like a lion. This phantom image wasn’t fixed and the effects attached were different based on the choice of beast.
When Qing Shui saw this, he smiled and started to circulate a tremendous amount of spirit energy into his Niwan Palace before trying to perform the Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation.
Mm, it failed!
Qing Shui stopped for a while. It was normal to fail, but Qing Shui felt that he should have succeeded.
He wasn’t afraid of failure. Again!
This was followed by several hundred consecutive failed attempts. He finally stopped when he felt dizzy. It seemed that this wasn’t something which could be achieved in just a short moment. What would the old man think if he were to know that Qing Shui had wanted to succeed with his first attempt? The old man had taken ten years before he could create a phantom image himself.
After some rest, Qing Shui put off the cultivation of the Demonic Beast Armor Manifestation and picked up the Great Golden Buddha Palm. It was really the Nine Waves Great Golden Buddha Palm. However, the copy which Qing Shui had gotten wasn’t a complete one. His incomplete copy was the actual copy, while the old man’s replicate was a complete one.
The more Qing Shui read, the more astonished he was and the more excited he became. After reading it once through, he read through from the beginning another time. He then closed his eyes and went into deep contemplation.
Suddenly, he lifted his head and waved his hand in the air.
A huge golden palm appeared, but it shattered very quickly. Qing Shui let out an excited shout. About 15 minutes later, he looked at the golden palm which had appeared before him.
It wasn’t as big as the one the old man had produced and was only about ten meters in size. However, it was colored a deeper gold and was stronger. The spiritual energy on it was very powerful. It had a righteous and indestructible aura…
This was Nature Energy condensed from his spirit energy?
State of Immovable as Mountains?
Qing Shui smiled. Next, he continued to cultivate the Great Golden Buddha Palm endlessly. He only tried to create a single one since this was the foundation and Qing Shui knew the importance of setting up one’s foundation.
At night, Qing Shui came out from the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal and went to Di Qing’s room.
The moment he entered Di Qing’s room, a burning figure immediately dashed into his arms.
“I missed you!”
Her charming and stiff voice was very seductive and Qing Shui’s body heated up. He placed her down on that thick bedding, met her sexy lips, and swallowed the sweetness from Di Qing’s beautiful mouth.
His hands also began skillfully undressed her. Qing Shui hadn’t expected for Di Qing to be so proactive now. Thinking of the frenzy from the night before, his blood started to boil. The lady who was beautiful as a fairy kept up the most embarrassing pose and let Qing Shui thrust into her. Her beautiful cry due from the wondrous feeling of pleasure shot down from her head all the way through her back and down to her feet.
Very quickly, Di Qing’s clothes left her body and her perky snow white peaks didn’t show any signs of deformation even though she was lying down. It was still as perky as before and he buried his face into them…
