Paragon of Sin

Chapter 447: Spirit Units

at twenty-two years, shocking many amongst the crowd. It seemed he made ample preparations and restricted his cultivation start for this competition, possibly focusing entirely on Intent.

Now, only eight remained out of eleven.

Grand Priestess Si De gave Wei Wuyin another glance before speaking to the crowd, retrieving her bracelet, ”The Test of Holy Talent has been completed! Eight of these Holy Candidates have gained Divine Lord Desi ’s approval! We ’ll begin with the Test of Spiritual Might! Those who wish to obtain the Will of Desi must prove that their spirits are strong enough, worthy enough, to handle his will! ”

Four hooded men behind her stepped forward, waving their long sleeves as pieces of glass surged out of them like lightning. They clashed heavily above, spurting out sparks of light that dazzled the crowd like fireworks. When all the ruckus settled, an oval mirror appeared with a glowing white frame.

It slowly descended before the Grand Priestess Si De, who clasped her hands together in prayer and uttered a strange chant. The four hooded men aside, the other hooded figures outside of the ten Grand Kings and nine Clan Masters chanted along. The atmosphere became sanctified, feeling blessed.

Wei Wuyin noticed this oval mirror was roughly the size of a person, but the mirror didn ’t reflect a person ’s reflection. It was strange as a mosaic distortion was reflected instead, seemingly indicating something was off with its interaction with light. 

The young woman frowned, ”A Spiritual Reflection Mirror? How did they… ” She contemplated with a murmur, a tinge of shock betrayed by her gaze. 

Wei Wuyin heard her hushed voice, his draconic senses were far too great not to. He pondered.

The Grand Priestess Si De shouted to the sky, raising her hands above her head while waving it slightly. Whatever she was doing caused the mirror ’s surface to flicker with various lights of intensity. The display was quite gorgeous, hard to move one ’s eyes from it.

Then, she exhaled loudly, causing the sky to roil slightly. The oval mirror landed on the ground and etched itself upright, its mosaic surface facing the candidates. 

”Holy Candidates of our Divine Lord, touch the Soul Mirror of Endless Reflection; your spirit will be reflected for the world and our Divine Lord to see, to inspect, and I pray that his will finds you worthy! ” The Grand Priestess exclaimed excitedly, her face somewhat flushed.

Wei Wuyin was about to take the first step, but was a little too slow as the handsome young man originally considered as the dark horse of the competition blurred aggressively before the mirror. The mirror reflected a mosaic reflection of himself. With a fierce and resolute gaze, he touched the mirror in a light caress. 

BRUUUM!

A loud eruption of light engulfed his figure for a brief moment before receding back into the mirror. When it did, the originally mosaic and indistinct form of the young man was perfectly reflected with utmost clarity as if staring at a real mirror. While the background was still vague, his figure wasn ’t.

Wei Wuyin inspected the mirror with his Celestial Eyes, but he frowned after being unable to decipher or comprehend the formations embedded within. It seemed it exceeded Mortal Limits, far beyond his current understanding. 

Shockingly, the mirror didn ’t reflect a number. Instead, firefly-like motes of cyan-colored light that hue reminded Wei Wuyin of Soul-Pulse Manifestation Tribulation ’s rings started to appear from within the clear reflection of the young man. 

Wei Wuyin was also reminded of Spirit Units, a form of measurement that Eden had devised to measure the strength of each Soul-Pulse Ring. 

By using the lowest portion of extractable yet fully stable spiritual strength within the lowest imaginable quantity of spiritual energy, it had devised a measurement and determined it as spirit units. As these ’spirit units ’ combined together to form greater connective bonds, the ’total ’ power of Spiritual Strength was elevated as a result.

By this conceived standard, Eden and himself had determined the relative spiritual strength of each Soul-Pulse Ring. This fully revealed the extraordinary calculative prowess of Eden ’s Mind Dao intermixing with his Alchemic Dao. 

Each mote of cyan light that emerged was 1 Spirit Unit. As the motes were continuously emerging, they started to connect with line-like bridges that increased the intensity of their respective light and constructed an extraordinary network. This supported Eden ’s measurement and how spirit units interacted and grew stronger, creating a higher spiritual strength!

Engrossed in this development, Wei Wuyin paid rapt attention. The number of motes rapidly increased until roughly 3,000 was revealed, each connected into a single whole via a complex integrated network of webs and bridges. This was the exquisite representation of a single iota of Spiritual Strength.

Regardless of what, this amount of spiritual strength was constant and unchanging lest one increased their foundation. Even if a person used an ocean worth of spiritual energy against a small pond, they would still have the same level of strength. While the pond would be exhausted, it would equally eliminate a small pond-sized portion of the ocean in turn. 

After the motes of cyan light completely settled, the final result was revealed!
