Chapter 1011: Using the Spear in this Life again
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
“I’ll have a look.” Xue Ying directly responded. He cut off the lengthy introduction which the manager was about to give.
“Please, please.” The manager immediately replied.
Only then did Xue Ying extend his hand to grab this spear. The surface of the spear contained many veined patterns, and it was comfortable to hold the spear body.
With a pull, the spear moved like a dragon. At the same time, it gave off a faint wail.
The manager muttered softly after seeing it: “This Little Prince Xue Ying, it seems you know spear techniques?”
Xue Ying grabbed on to the tip of the spear body with his left hand while caressing the spear body with his right. A familiar feeling was gnawing on his heart. Before reincarnating, Xue Ying primarily cultivated the Dao of Mirage. It was not appropriate for him to use the spear and engage in close combat while using the illusory realm. Hence, Xue Ying had directly given up using the spear for close combat in the future despite using it frequently during the early stages.
But after coming to the Realm Heart Great Land, Xue Ying had decided to cultivate in two main paths. The Dao of Mirage still remained as one of it since he had a high talent in it. The other was the Dao of Void! After all, he already accumulated great experience and understanding in it. Xue Ying obtained the inheritances from Void Primogenitor, Monarch Nine Cloud before getting the chance to study the scaled armor left behind by General Mo Gu. Xue Ying even comprehended the void for a trillion years in the Lost World Corridor. These foundational comprehensions coupled with his perception of another way of using the void during the process of transfer when using the Realm Heart Order and the fact that he joined the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion meant that Xue Ying would have a bright future in the void.
Hence, it was natural for Xue Ying to cultivate in these two Dao paths!
And the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles” was a close combat absolute art! Most would usually use their bodies as a weapon, but it was possible for the cultivator to use other weapons too.
‘In this life, I’ll be using the spear again.’ Xue Ying thought.
He then sent his consciousness into the spear. Previously, it was the aura of this spear that attracted him over. This time, he wanted to thoroughly examine it.
“Hong~” As his consciousness permeated into it, Xue Ying could vaguely see a huge dark maelstrom stairway. The stairway led deeper and deeper, and space became more mysterious. After all, the void in the Realm Heart Great Land was quite similar to the void in the origin world he came from, Xue Ying was thus able to understand part of this profundity.
As Xue Ying inspected further, he continued moving deeper along the maelstrom stairway. It got faster and faster, and the veined pattern son the spear body lit up.
Suddenly, everything shattered.
Xue Ying frowned as he looked at the spearhead of the spear. The spear body was a dull gray, yet its spearhead was emanating a bloody murderous aura and was deep violet in color.
“It seems this spearhead isn’t one entity with the spear body?” Xue Ying asked.
“Prince Xue Ying has good eyesight.” The manager answered from the side, “We have requested an expert over to inspect through this weapon before. It should be refined by a Cosmos God, and the spearhead was added after that. The spearhead is quite murderous and tyrannical as you can feel.”
Xue Ying shook his head softly.
Murderous and tyrannical?
The original spearhead of this spear body should allow the cultivator to unleash an extremely horrifying void killing move! And it was absolutely at the Cosmos God level. Furthermore, this usage of the void was something Xue Ying had never seen before. If he had the whole spear, Xue Ying felt that it would be worth it even if he used the entire Ardent Fire Marquisdom to exchange for it.
It’s a pity that there was only the spear body left, causing its value to depreciate significantly. Even though the spearhead was added after that, it was quite ordinary.
“Prince Xue Ying.” The manager added, “This secret treasure weapon is missing its spearhead, yet the spearhead added after that had been used for a trillion years. Its power is extraordinary. More importantly, it is cheap. You only need to pay 12 million cosmos crystals for it!”
He stared at Xue Ying.
12 million cosmos crystals… the number of people who could afford it in the entire Ardent Fire City could not be more than what could be counted using two hands! This so-called Little Prince Xue Ying who was favored by Old Mother Ying Shan should be able to afford it.
“12 million cosmos crystals?” Elder Tian Yi Zhi roared from the side, “Do you know how much is 12 million cosmos crystals? It can even buy a complete secret treasure weapon!”
There were many Cosmos Gods in the Realm Heart Great Land. Hence, it was more common to find secret treasure weapons here as compared to in the primal chaos void five great sacred worlds.
Xue Ying was watching from the side.
With his previous attainments in the void, Xue Ying could deduce the origin of this spear was extraordinary. Just the value of its spear body should be worth beyond 100 million cosmos crystals! It seemed this shop should never have invited a Primal Chaos Giant who cultivated in the Dao of Void over. Otherwise, they would not have stated this price.
But Xue Ying would not readily agree to the price reported by the other party because he only had a total of 15 million cosmos crystals with him! He should be ranked in the top three within the entire Ardent Fire Marquisdom in terms of wealth.
Of which eight million cosmos crystals had been bestowed by Old Mother Ying Shan! Two million cosmos crystals were given by Marquis Ardent Fire. Marquis Ardent Fire had also given him cavern-dwellings, shops, and many territories. Xue Ying was able to collect rental fees from those cavern-dwellings and shops. The reason why some of the aristocratic clan disciples could live so extravagantly was that they owned multiple cavern-dwellings and shops, allowing them to earn cosmos crystals continually. Even though it was few, one had to know that a single cosmos crystal was worth more than 10,000 upper graded primal rocks. One could live in luxury.
Xue Ying was fully confident of himself. He did not have to depend on the cavern-dwellings and shops for a living. Hence, he had long sold those to the Marquisdom, obtaining five million cosmos crystals in total.
Currently, he had a total of 15 million cosmos crystals!
Hw was more wealthy than even the elders of the Marquisdom!
“Elder Tian, you don’t have to say anymore. 10 million cosmos crystals. This is the utmost limit of our master.” The manager helplessly said, “Prince Xue Ying, honestly speaking, this spear body was discovered 15 years ago by a group of cultivators adventuring in some ancient remnants. They were very fortunate to obtain this spear body amidst a round of killings. In the end, two cultivators who survived brought this spear body over to me! We had even suffered from the assassinations by the companions of those who went to the ancient remnant. At that time, this matter had been made huge, and Prince Xue Ying could find out more about this easily. My master has already planned to return to his clan’s ‘Celestial Yin City’ several hundred years later if he could not sell this spear. By then, there would be many more experts who could afford it.”
Xue Ying slightly nodded as he listened. He believed this story should not be fake since an event which happened just 15 years ago should easily be investigated by him.
“Alright. I’ll buy it for 10 million cosmos crystals.” Xue Ying nodded.
“Alright, alright!” The manager was in great joy.
His master was only a disciple from one of the four great clans, the ‘Celestial Yin Clan’. He had been arranged here to take charge of the business here. If he sold the spear, his master would have greater benefits from then on. If he were to sell the spear in the Celestial Yin City, his master would definitely be exploited by the clan.
‘We’ve earned great! I thought this spear would not be sold even after master set the lower limit of 10 million cosmos crystals! Previously, we only spent three million cosmos crystals to buy it.’ This manager felt joyful. Actually, those who risked their lives in acquiring this spear body from the ancient remnant was very satisfied with earning the three million cosmos crystals.
But he did not know.
This secret treasure weapon which seemed lacking the spearhead was in reality worth more than 100 million cosmos crystals! This was ultimately a small place, and even if Marquis Ardent Fire came personally, he who did not specialize in the void could only deduce it was refined by a Cosmos God. He could not verify how precious it is.
Very soon, that Celestial Yin clan disciple ‘Celestial Yin Flowing Jade’ rushed over personally to complete this transaction.
“Haha, Prince Xue Ying, I’ll be returning to the Celestial Yin City in a few days. If you were to pay the Celestial Yin City a visit, you must tell me. I’ll definitely receive you well.” Celestial Yin Flowing Jade was extremely delighted. This shop was property under his name. Previously, he spent three million cosmos crystals to purchase this spear, which cost him almost all his treasures. Furthermore, he even pawned some merchandise from his shop for cosmos crystals.
Currently, he had earned seven million cosmos crystals in a single instant. Celestial Yin Flowing Jade felt he no longer needed to stay in the Ardent Fire City anymore. It was fine for his subordinates to stay here, and he could return to the Celestial Yin City then.
The Celestial Yin City was protected by a Cosmos God and was much more flourishing than this place.
Xue Ying’s mood was good as he brought this spear back to the cavern-dwelling. He directly entered closed-door cultivation in the Void God Pagoda.
Within the Void God Pagoda.
Xue Ying sat on the floating great rock, caressing this ancient spear which emitted a murderous aura. Nevertheless, he felt satisfied. He reminisced back to those days when he trained in the spear.
‘This is a secret treasure weapon, and I could use it even after reaching the Cosmos God realm.’ Xue Ying chuckled, ‘You will be accompanying me for a very long time.’
The spear let out a ringing sound. Being a secret treasure, it naturally had spirit.
Xue Ying chuckled. Using the spear once again made him feel happy. He then began concentrating once again: ‘It is time for me to break through to the Unity realm.’
