Chapter 1025: Stunned
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
‘With these books, the possibility of me breaking through to the Cosmos God realm would be much higher!’
Xue Ying’s eyes were sparkling as he stared at the books floating across the vast space.
What about those books imprinted on the Sky Pillar?
He temporarily did not need to care about them since they required contribution points to be exchanged. Currently, Xue Ying could only accept Unity realm level missions with the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion, and he would only be getting hundreds of contribution points every task. Furthermore, these missions were extremely complex. The slightly easier ones had already been snatched away by other inner disciples!
Inner disciples were practically all at the Primal Chaos realm and could send their incarnations an ultra-long distance away. They could thus efficiently complete these missions.
‘In order to earn contribution points, I should wait until the time that I can show my strength to the public–about ninth or tenth level. By then, earning points should be much faster.’ Xue Ying thought.
‘As for now?’
‘I should build a strong foundation first.’ Xue Ying started his reading.
The Book Repository within the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion was quite scary. The rare scriptures located on the ‘Sky Pillar’ were ultimately few in number–fewer than 100. But the other books found here were free to read! There were even absolute art scriptures that directly led to the Cosmos God realm available for everyone to browse through.
‘By learning from the crystallization of wisdom and experience of others, this would widen my path of cultivation.’ Xue Ying did not mind learning from others. By doing so, it would broaden his perspective. Just like how his talent on the Dao of Void initially could not compare to the ‘Dao of Mirage illusory realm’, after learning from the inheritances by Void Primogenitor, Monarch Nine Cloud, and comprehending the scaled armor left behind by General Mo Gu that contained the ‘shadowless talent’, coupled with observing the Lost World Corridor for a trillion years… Xue Ying’s attainment in the Dao of Void continually rose. It had even surpassed his comprehensions on the Dao of Slaughter and Dao of Ripple.
And in this life.
He joined the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion which specialized in the void aspect. The religion even had the “Avatar Technique”, “Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique”, and “Void-ification Undying Technique”.
Maybe his attainments on the void in this life might be higher than the Mirage and illusory realm. That was entirely possible!
Cultivating with reference from many seniors versus slowly cultivating alone was very different.
‘So many books.’
Xue Ying first spent a total of two days sweeping through all the books.
His accomplishments in the void aspect were originally high so few could catch his notice–only a total of 195 books on the void element! As for books written by other seniors regarding the tricks to cultivating the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”, Xue Ying disdained from reading those since few of those seniors had reached the tenth level power at Primal Chaos realm.
Xue Ying naturally wasn’t willing to waste too much of his time.
‘195 books.’ Xue Ying softly nodded. More than 30 of these 195 books were written personally by ‘Southern Cloud King’ himself! Others were either books that were written directly to the Cosmos God realm or they were some ancient and queer books.
‘There are actually good books on the Mirage and illusory realm too.’ Xue Ying felt pleasant.
There were even fewer books that were noticed by Xue Ying on the Mirage and illusory realm aspect. Primarily it was because there were not too many books on this aspect across the entire Realm Heart Great Land. Hence, fewer existed in the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion. Only a total of 18 books were noticed by Xue Ying! And only two books could be cultivated to the Cosmos God realm. And there were no books at all that gave one the ability to exhibit a tenth level strength at the Primal Chaos realm.
This was normal too. Exhibiting strength at the tenth level was equivalent to having the ability to fight against Cosmos Gods. It was absolutely not a technique that a sect would easily publicize.
Like the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion, only after becoming an inner disciple could he learn it. Otherwise, non-inner disciples would have to fork out a huge price.
‘This is enough.’
‘This is sufficient.’ Xue Ying felt contended. These 18 books on the Mirage and illusory realm had significantly opened his eyes. He was ultimately a great expert in the Mirage and illusory realm, and someone who created a ninth level move at the Primal Chaos realm.
‘These books all represent different cultivation directions. They have greatly improved my confidence in breaking through to the Cosmos God realm.’
Joining the religion?
He did not care about treasures! Neither did Xue Ying care about the backings!
Instead, what he paid greater importance to was the absolute art scriptures left behind by many experts across the generations in the Realm Heart Great Land. As the saying went, ‘Dao isn’t easily imparted to others’. It wasn’t easy for Southern Cloud King with his strength to collect so many books either. And it was impossible for a cultivator to access these books if he was not willing to join the religion altogether. Furthermore, it was impossible for the Southern Cloud King to accept cultivators without the required strength or talent either.
After obtaining these books, Xue Ying first memorized them.
Only after that did he continue cultivating with a low profile within the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion. He would occasionally flip through different books to broaden his perspective. Over time, it had been three million years after Xue Ying joined the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion.
In a desert.
A white-robed young figure was flying through the sky. He was killing his way towards the nine armored soldiers ahead. These armored soldiers had different weapons–some were holding on to a saber, some were holding on to a shield, and some to bow and arrows…
That white-robed young man flashed. Many figures appeared in the surrounding. It was as if eight to nine figures had appeared within an instant.
His speed was so fast, and his movement was unpredictable. Discerning the real from the fake was hard.
Xue Ying pointed his finger to the back of one soldier. “Peng”, the back of that soldier immediately exploded, leaving a huge hole behind and causing fresh blood to spurt. That soldier rapidly reacted, turning back and hacking down his ax. Nevertheless, Xue Ying was no longer there. Ten strange figures appeared at different places charged towards that soldier holding on to a shield next.
By relying on this frightening body cultivation technique, Xue Ying easily trampled on these soldiers. Just a few moments later, those nine armored soldiers were utterly spent. They dissipated from the scene.
Xue Ying revealed a grin. Pagoda-Shaped stairs appeared to the distance that led to the higher seventh level of the God Yuan Palace.
Xue Ying naturally ‘lost’ this level.
“This Ying Shan Xue Ying has just entered the sacred religion not too long ago, yet he has succeeded in crossing through the God Yuan Palace sixth level?”
Many elders within the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion received the news. They felt bewildered. It was normal for cultivators to break through rapidly after entering the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion. But after considering the age of Xue Ying, things felt quite exaggerated–he cultivated for just five million years!
“Did he enter the ‘Time-Space Realm’ to cultivate? He might have cultivated for hundred to a thousand times the period over these three million years.”
“He did not enter a time-accelerated environment. Judging from the aura of his soul, he seems to be slightly older than five million years.”
“I’ve asked the array spirit before. Other than cultivating in his own cavern-dwelling, Ying Shan Xue Ying has practically spent other time reading in the Book Repository Realm. He hasn’t entered a time-accelerated environment.”
“Reading books? Oh, that’s right too. The Book Repository Realm contains many books. There are also many books left behind by the seniors regarding their experience in cultivating the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”. This fellow Ying Shan Xue Ying should not have a teacher before. He should have been cultivating by himself in that tiny area Ardent Fire City. Now that he has read through so many books, acquiring the experience of the seniors, he should have gained some enlightenment, directly jumping to the God Yuan Palace sixth level strength. That is normal too.”
“Mn, it should be like this.”
The elders were discussing this matter.
Even though they understood it was normal for a genius who had never been adequately guided before to break through at a rapid pace after acquiring the experience and guidance of the seniors, it was still quite horrifying since the other party had merely cultivated for five million years.
Southern Cloud Capital.
Within an extremely luxurious residence, there was a bamboo house surrounded by flowing water. A beautiful violet-robed girl sat cross-legged within this house. Her robe was long and had practically occupied half the entire surface of the bamboo house.
She was currently holding on to a needle doing embroidery.
“Master.” A male respectfully reported from outside the bamboo curtain, “A piece of news has come from the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion.”
“What’s the matter?” This girl indifferently responded. There was no voice coming from her. It directly permeated into the other party’s soul.
The male could not help but feel his heart tightening. He understood how frightening his mater was, and immediately answered with respect: “The newest inner disciple from the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion, ‘Ying Shan Xue Ying’, has just gotten through the God Yuan Palace sixth level. He has cultivated only for 5.5 million years.”
“Oh? Send an invitation to my banquet over to him.” The girl’s voice contained a strand of delight.
