Chapter 1058: Say That Again?
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Fiery Zhao Capital, outside the main entrance of the Southern Cloud Sacred Palace. Marquis Qu Ming and several other disciples were here waiting a while ago.
Because the battlefield had been completely isolated, the shockwave did not leak out to the surroundings. But when the enemies left, the shockwaves were released and had alarmed more than half the experts in the city.
“Senior Disciple Brother Xue Ying.” The group of disciples was all being respectful.
Marquis Qu Ming was even looking at Xue Ying with concern.
Xue Ying said before entering the Southern Cloud Sacred Palace. Watching the back of the leaving Xue Ying, Marquis Qu Ming and the others dared not say anything. They could feel that the current mood of this era genius ‘Xue Ying’ was not good.
Within the cultivation room, Xue Ying sat alone.
Even though the five great experts who assaulted Xue Ying were greatly startled from the fact that they did not kill Xue Ying, and felt that Xue Ying was too enduring, Xue Ying himself felt sullen. From the start to end, he was beaten. Xue Ying wanted to unleash an ‘Arch Destruction’ or a ‘Piercing Void’ at the enemy, yet he did not have the time due to being affected by the flow of time.
‘With my strength, I was actually trapped in the Time Domain without being able to break out of it.’ Xue Ying was greatly shocked. Most tenth level experts cultivating the Time Dao were not so heaven-defying, ‘His Highness Blaze Wind is a core disciple from the ‘Blaze Clan’, one of the two great clans in the Myriad Realms Ancient Nation?’
Xue Ying could naturally recognize that resplendent red-haired teen. The strand of flame rising on his forehead was too eye-catching.
Core disciples from the Blaze Clan with sufficiently concentrated bloodline were able to awaken their heaven-defying talent. Accompanied by an appropriate absolute art scripture, they were naturally strong in combat.
As for those who could not awaken? They would not be core disciples.
The reason why they could have such heaven-defying innate talent was because of the Patriarch from the Blaze Clan. He was one of the five ancestors in Myriad Realms Ancient Nation who refined his body to an unparalleled realm.
‘Hundred-Battle Devil God? Rain Dust Walker?”
Only then did Xue Ying feel the threat of death.
Every round of attack diminished close to 10% of his body lifeforce. An estimated 12 rounds of attack would suffice to cause his death! The other two who specialized in water and fire seemed weakest, but their combination had instead reduced the strength of Xue Ying’s Southern Cloud Sacred Body. Just like how a weapon would become weak when being inflicted with both water and fire simultaneously, the logic here was similar–his body would collapse more quickly.
Even though he did not lose any lifeforce from the water-fire joint attack, his body became weaker, allowing the effects of the attacks by Hundred-Battle Devil God and Rain Dust Walker to be better.
Every attack gave him the ‘smell’ of death. It also forced him to do his best to ‘void-ify’, diverting more force into the void. If Xue Ying had reached the pinnacle of void-ification, his body would be one with the void, and these attacks could not injure him at all.
‘I just lack by a bit before becoming one with the void?’
Xue Ying began concentrating.
His teacher Southern Cloud King moved really quickly. On the second day after Xue Ying suffered from an assassination, a group of expert had killed their way into the Sky Sword Sect Palace.
As His Highness Blaze Wind, Rain Dust Walker and the others were clear that they might suffer from retaliation, they had all hidden within the Sky Sword Sect Palace! If not for the superpowers behind them ordering for them to aid the Sky Sword Sect, they would have long fled.
“What is the outcome?” Xue Ying even came out especially to ask this.
“They battled really fiercely. It has alarmed the entire capital. The royal family and those devils from the Black Devil Great Lake were all watching from afar. After the battle, more than half the Sky Sword Sect Palace has been destroyed.” Marquis Qu Ming said.
Xue Ying felt slightly shocked.
Since the Sky Sword Sect dared to advance into the Fiery Zhao Nation, the arrays constructed in this sacred palace of theirs in the capital should be extremely formidable–likely on the same level with the Southern Cloud Sacred Palace. Ordinary tenth level experts could not break through it, yet more than half the entire palace had been destroyed. It was unquestionable that the arrays were damaged. Otherwise, the palace would be standing upright still.
‘The experts dispatched by Teacher are really amazing for them to destroy the array of the palace.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly. He understood that after knowing the strength from the Sky Sword Sect, the experts the Southern Cloud King sent would likely be stronger than the five experts. Otherwise, the King would be slapping his face by sending these experts over.
Even though the hidden powers were strong.
The Southern Cloud King himself also had some hidden powers. He could also ‘borrow soldiers’ from others. It’s only that these were experts not from the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion, and they could not publicize their identities. Furthermore, some defeated the Sky Sword Sect using techniques not from the religion. Hence, this could not prove that the cultivation techniques of Southern Cloud Sacred Religion were superior! Instead, this was merely a fight in the dark between the two great religions.
On the surface, they still required disciples like Thunder King Mo Chao, Gong Liang Yi, and Xue Ying to fight.
After he slightly understood the outcome of that battle, Xue Ying went back to closed-door cultivation.
Xue Ying’s understanding of the essence of the void became more profound over time. He lacked by a strand before reaching the pinnacle of ‘void-ification’. But this strand was not any less difficult than breaking through to the Cosmos God Realm! Xue Ying had not taken this step yet. He had no choice. It was too hard to achieve ‘void-ification’ at the Primal Chaos Realm. Fortunately, he had seen before the scaled-armor of General Mo Gu. Otherwise, achieving this step at the Primal Chaos Realm was just a pipe dream since Xue Ying had no point of reference.
After all, there were only two great cultivation techniques in the Realm Heart Great Land that could allow a Primal Chaos expert to achieve the pinnacle of void-ification.
One was with the Myriad Realms Ancient Nation.
And the other with the Summer Wind Ancient Nation.
The other ancient nations including those who had reached an extremely high realm in the void aspect like Southern Cloud King could not create such a cultivation technique at all.
Even though Xue Ying could not improve further in void-ification, he had met quite a huge improvement in his ‘Five Phases Sealing Technique’.
After all, he merely had to reach small success.
Three months after suffering from the assassination.
Xue Ying looked at the void in front of him. He lightly brushed his hand on the void, causing many black fog spherical particles to move according to his control–they actually started moving. Everything was done according to Xue Ying’s wishes. One of the many layers of ‘black cloth’ actually formed into a large sphere, before turning into a substantial corporeal entity.
“I’ve finally reached this stage.” Xue Ying revealed a grin. The black fog spherical bodies were ultimately too small. Interacting with them was tough. Even by relying on the Southern Cloud Sacred Body, Xue Ying could only destroy several black fog spherical particles after using the ‘Arch Destruction’. How hard was it to control them? He had to rely on the Profound Mysteries of Void to ‘guide’ them. Once he succeeded in this guiding technique, it would mean small success in the ‘Origin Phase’. This was already a ninth level move.
It had reached the pinnacle of Primal Chaos Realm without relying on any external materials.
“Hu! Hu! Hu! Hu! Hu!”
Xue Ying thought.
Five strands of light appeared directly above the sky. They represented control towards five types of the void. One of the light strands was an incomparably massive black primal chaos, and one was incorporeal and seemed fleeting. One was surging and galloping like a tsunami in the void, and one would sometimes be pulled into a threat, and at times transformed into a fog. The final strand of light just gave off a dim glow.
“Five Phases Sealing Technique!” Xue Ying revealed a joyous look, “If I had succeeded in grasping this, how would I be afraid of his Time Domain?”
The Time Domain would suffer from a greater backlash when a more powerful cultivator was trapped within.
Five Phases Sealing Technique
This was the strongest void absolute art that the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion had, and also the most overbearing one. If Xue Ying had the ‘Five Phases Beads’, he could unleash five tenth level techniques at the same time. They could be fused together to form the ‘Five Phases Sealing Technique’ that had unfathomable power.
“Teacher.” Xue Ying immediately contacted the Southern Cloud King.
“What’s the matter, Xue Ying?” Southern Cloud King asked.
“I’ve grasped the Five Phases Sealing Technique.” Xue Ying said.
“What? Say that again?”
