After sustaining an injury in battle against Lee Mok Sau, Yeung Gor was healed by the inner power of East Heretic Wong Yerk See. From this, Yeung Gor gained a permanent transfer of a small portion of Wong Yerk See's inner power, which significantly strengthened Yeung Gor's own inner power base and boosted him another step up in his ascent to martial arts greatness.
Later, at Seung Yeung Fortress, Yeung Gor received another inner power transfer from Gwok Jing on the early morning after Yeung Gor had failed in his attempt to assassinate Gwok Jing. Gwok Jing thought that Yeung Gor had suffered a fire deviation, and Yeung Gor went along with that misinterpretation, allowing Gwok Jing to transfer a bit of his inner power to him. Did Yeung Gor gain another permanent boost from this transfer as well? Yeung Gor fought notably better during the next few days against the Mongol warriors (including the Golden Wheel Monk) than he previously seemed capable of.
