Aspiring to the Immortal Path Chapter 41: Selection (2)

Translated by: Hypersheep325
Edited by: Michyrr

Back to the night of Ji Ziqian's departure:

In the small wooden hut, Tang Jie said to Wei Die, "I truly need Fourth Young Lady's help with something."

"What is it?"

"It's like this… before meeting Fourth Young Lady, I already explained to Uncle Qin that I was once fortunate enough to encounter an Immortal."

"Yes, I know. That's why you understand so much about the cultivation world."

"The problem is that this immortal did something else for me besides telling me about the cultivation world."

"What was it?"

"Opening my Jade Gate," Tang Jie answered.

Steward Qin and Wei Die were both flabbergasted, Wei Die blurting out, "Your Jade Gate is already open? How many cycles?"

"Five cycles," Tang Jie helplessly replied.

A five-cycle Jade Gate!

Steward Qin and Wei Die gasped.

A five-cycle Jade Gate sounded like the middle grade.

But it was just like how the Celestial Heart Realm was only 'middle grade', yet no one dared to not take a True Person seriously.

For the vast majority of cultivators, a five-cycle Jade Gate was already an extremely difficult feat. A conceited genius like Ji Ziqian had truthfully only managed to reach four cycles.

And of the three young masters and six servants students the Wei Clan had dispatched, none had reached five cycles, the best having only reached four. This also meant that while Tang Jie's aptitude put him in the middle, he was in the upper ranks compared to the rest of the crowd. It was no wonder that Steward Qin and Wei Die were so shocked.

It had to be understood that a five-cycle Jade Gate signified that someone had the qualities to reach the Celestial Heart Realm.

Such was the importance of the Jade Gate to the cultivation world. It served as a dividing line, the number of cycles serving as an indicator of one's potential. For example, one cycle or two cycles meant that one could definitely become a Spirit Disciple, which was one's foot into the door. Three or four cycles meant that one could become a Spirit Master, five or six was Celestial Heart, and seven or eight was Violet Palace. Nine cycles meant that one had a fifty percent chance of reaching Immortal Platform.

A five-cycle Jade Gate meant that if one cultivated normally, one would have a fifty percent chance of reaching the Celestial Heart Realm.

Of course, this wasn't some scientific division. It symbolized a cultivator's ability to circulate and absorb spiritual energy. It could be compared to a person's life expectancy in that it had the greatest theoretical value.
