Chapter 1059: Seize!

Closely following that.
A figure walked out of the cultivation room where Xue Ying was meditating at. It was Southern Cloud King garbed in a black robe.
‘Black robe? This is Teacher’s avatar?’ Xue Ying guessed. Since Southern Cloud King could create the avatar technique, his mastery in it should be transcendental.
“You’ve grasped the Five Phases Sealing Technique? Quickly! Show it to me!” Southern Cloud King urged.
Xue Ying nodded. At that moment, five strands of light appeared above them. It covered almost the entire cultivation room.
Southern Cloud King looked up at the five strands of light. At that moment, his eyes were somehow filled with obsession. He muttered: “Five Phases Seal, Five Phases Seal, my disciple has actually grasped it at the Primal Chaos Realm?”
He knew his disciple wasn’t someone to lie. But after hearing the voice transmission coming from Xue Ying, he could not help but think if he might have misheard it.
Because the <Five Phases Sealing Technique> was the strongest combat secret impartation technique he had in the void lineage. This secret impartation technique was owned by four out of the six great ancient nations. In those ancient nations, there were many secret impartation techniques, so they did not care much about this. Nevertheless, in the Southern Cloud Nation–ultimately still a tier two nation–the meaning of <Five Phases Sealing Technique> was naturally different. Furthermore, this cultivation technique was extremely difficult to grasp.
“It is hard to reach the pinnacle of a single Dao path at the Primal Chaos Realm. To reach the pinnacle in five different Dao paths…” Southern Cloud King was currently feeling waves of emotions. He had only obtained the Five Phases Sealing Technique after reaching the peak. After that did he train it to grand perfection.
He questioned himself once and knew that it was unlikely for him to grasp it at the Primal Chaos Realm.
According to what he knew, there was once an absolute genius from the Towering Sky Ancient Nation that actually grasped the Five Phases Sealing Technique at the Primal Chaos Realm. But that was just a single cultivator!
“Good, good!” Southern Cloud King looked at Xue Ying with praise.
“This is the Five Phase Beads.” Southern Cloud King took out a bracelet. There were five black beads inlaid on the bracelet. Every bead was faintly emitting light and were all emanating different aura. The Southern Cloud King let out a sigh of sorrow, “Not long after I got the <Five Phases Sealing Technique>, I had refined this ‘Five Phase Beads’. I always wanted to bestow this secret treasure away, yet I could only wait, and wait until today when the beads have finally found its owner.”
The Five Phase Beads were floating in front of Xue Ying.
Xue Ying extended his head and took it.
He extended his senses.
Every bead contained a world inside. They correspond to one of the ‘phases’.
After perceiving the mysterious inscriptions inherent within the Five Phase Beads, Xue Ying suddenly looked up with startlement: “Teacher, this, this…”
He originally thought that this should be a tenth level secret treasure. But shortly after extending his senses into it, he discovered that the profound mysteries in this ‘Five Phase Beads’ was beyond that at the tenth level. Its preciousness wasn’t any lesser than the Scarlet Cloud God Spear, and might even be worth more! Because every bead of the Five Phase Beads was similar to a powerful secret treasure.
One had to know that ordinary tenth level secret treasures were worth between 500 million to a billion cosmos crystals.
Cosmos God graded secret treasures were usually priced from five to 10 billion cosmos crystals.
‘Five Phase Beads’–every bead was a secret treasure itself. If this were a tenth level secret treasure, given that his teacher was the one refining it and only required materials to cover the cost, it would cost about two billion cosmos crystals.
But currently, Xue Ying discovered that the Five Phase Beads wasn’t a tenth level graded treasure. Its value would likely be ten times more.
“Haha…” Southern Cloud King laughed, “I would never have thought that the first cultivator to succeed in grasping the Five Phases Sealing Technique is a disciple at the Primal Chaos Realm.”
Xue Ying was enlightened.
To comprehend five Dao paths to the pinnacle, this should be something a Cosmos God could grasp more easily.
“But it is too precious!” Xue Ying could not help but blurt out.
“Hold on to it. You are my disciple.” Southern Cloud King smiled, “The stronger you are, the powerful my Southern Cloud Sacred Religion is. Furthermore… you could reach this realm in five different Dao paths, which means that there is a great chance for you to break through to the Cosmos God Realm too.”
Xue Ying nodded and received it.
“Also, since you grasped the Five Phases Sealing Technique, The matter regarding Sky Sword Sect intruding into my Black Devil Four Nations will all be given to you to handle.” Southern Cloud King laughed, “Just do what you think is right. There is me supporting you from behind.”
“Yes, Teacher.” Xue Ying nodded.
On the next day.
The Magic Dragon that was covered entirely in black scales roared. It coiled itself above the Southern Cloud Sacred Palace. And on top of this vast Magic Dragon stood a white-robed young man.
“Go, let us pay the Sky Sword Sect Palace a visit.” Xue Ying said.
The Magic Dragon swam away and rapidly tunneled into the void.
In another location within the Fiery Zhao Capital near the Sky Sword Sect Palace, a vast coiling Magic Dragon tunneled out of the void. It floated in the sky. And that white-robed young man stood on top of the dragon looking down at the palace.
“They are still reconstructing?” Xue Ying looked downwards. The entire Sky Sword Sect Palace seemed utterly undamaged. But Xue Ying could see quite a few cultivators scattered across the place. They were currently carving array inscriptions on the area. One had to know that being a sacred palace in the capital, the arrays required that it had to withstand against tenth level experts. In terms of power, it was comparable to the ‘Flying Snow City’ which Xue Ying had.
The Flying Snow City took close to 100 million years to construct in the past primarily because of the array.
The Sky Sword Sect Palace itself was easy to construct. Given what Primal Chaos experts could not, they were able to easily finish building the entire palace in a single night. Only the array required a large number of materials and effort to inscribe!
“Who is that?”
“To dare to stand above the Sky Sword Sect Palace?”
“Do you know that Magic Dragon is worth more than a billion cosmos crystals? That white-robed young man should be the absolute genius from Southern Cloud Sacred Religion, ‘Ying Shan Xue Ying’.”
The moment Xue Ying appeared, he attracted the attention of many cultivators. Several carriages stopped in the distance just to watch the spectacle. Fortunately, these cultivators had excellent ‘vision’.
Xue Ying who stood on top of the back of the huge magic dragon seemed tiny. He looked downwards, and his voice reverberated around the world spanning more than 50 million kilometers: “I, Ying Shan Xue Ying, is here to challenge the experts from the Sky Sword Sect. During this period, I do hope for nobody to enter or exit the Sky Sword Sect Palace to prevent yourself from being implicated.” As he spoke, a surging spatial ripple had already engulfed the entire outer perimeter of the Sky Sword Sect Palace.
The void tsunami blasted out. Most eighth level experts would simply be killed by this ‘Scarlet Cloud Domain’ if they entered it.
Saying it sounded good–’to prevent yourself from being implicated’.
But in reality, this was really a matter of a ‘blockade’!
The underlying message was simple.
If you have the ability, defeat me. Otherwise, do not think of accepting or teaching any disciples. Under this horrifying void tsunami, there was nobody who dared to mix in! Xue Ying was really benevolent already. Unlike how Chang Su Wang and the others did–they did not unleash a domain before the blockade. Instead, they waited for disciples to enter the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion before directly killing them! It caused some of the ignorant outer disciples from Southern Cloud Sacred Palace to lose their lives.
“Its a blockade.”
“Ying Shan Xue Ying has blockaded the entrance to Sky Sword Sect Palace. How overbearing.”
“Quickly come and have a look!”
“Ying Shan Xue Ying sat on the Magic Dragon and came to blockade the entrance to the Sky Sword Sect Palace!” Many cultivators who stood far away were currently transmitting messages to their friends. “Hua hua hua”, large batches of experts rushed over from all directions. Some disciples from the royal clans and aristocratic marquises had also rushed over on their luxurious carriages. They were all excitedly watching the spectacle.
Chang Su Wang blockaded the entrance merely to challenge the other religion. After all, that was a ninth level expert.
As for Xue Ying blockading the Sky Sword Sect! That was a clash between both parties.
It was bustling with activity outside. Many cultivators were here to see the spectacle. They wanted to see the clash between Sky Sword Sect and Southern Cloud Sacred Religion! After all, these were two of the top ten great religions in the entire Realm Heart Great Land, and they were both fighting for their sects in a direct battle. For the sake of their own reputation, each faction would definitely be sending out the most powerful experts. After all, if one were defeated, they would be losing their reputation including their sect’s reputation.
“How dare he? How could he be so daring to do this?” The violet-robed ‘Thunder King’ Mo Chao looked up into the sky with fury, “So what if he has grasped the Scarlet Cloud Combat Technique?”
“Hu hu hu.”
Many other figures started appearing by the side. They were none other than His Highness Blaze Wind, Rain Dust Walker, the black-robed expert, the Hundred-Battle Devil God ‘Fan Chu Hu’, the water-fire envoys and others were all looking upwards.
“Fellow cultivators, what should we do?” Thunder King Mo Chao looked towards the side.
“Don’t ask us.” His Highness Blaze Wind shook his head and lightly chuckled, “We aren’t disciples of the Sky Sword Sect. Since the others are challenging the experts from the Sky Sword Sect, it isn’t good for us to act.”
“We do not have any chance of moving out. I am an expert from the Fan Clan, so what if I acted?” Fan Chu Hu shook his head too.
“We can’t either.” The water-fire envoys shook their head too. They were subordinates of the Sky Sword King yet what they cultivated was not part of the Sky Sword Sect lineage.
The battle between sects.
A direct challenge was something the disciples had to take responsibility for. If outsiders barged in, the sect would only be mocked for lacking experts.
“His survival capabilities are powerful, and his body techniques are amazing too. I can’t defeat him.” Thunder King Mo Chao frowned. He was one of the two protectors Sky Sword Sect had. He was quite famous amongst tenth level experts and was an honorary disciple of an ancestor within the Myriad Realms Ancient Nation. But with his arrogance, he would either not act, or he would acquire victory when he fought.
The other party had grasped the Scarlet Cloud Combat Technique and was someone who could make his presence untraceable–he was already at an invincible position. If Mo Chao went, he might not lose, but he would be teased, and it wouldn’t look good in public.
“King.” Mo Chao contacted the Sky Sword King.
“Since our sect is blockaded, then we can only face him in battle. You go. Even though you might not win, make sure you make it a spectacular battle. It is fine for you not to lose the face of the sect.” Sky Sword King transmitted back.
Mo Chao understood.
He had no choice.
There were only so many tenth level disciples which the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion had on the surface including those outside the nation–about ten or so. This was the same as the
Sky Sword Sect. There were some who could fight with Xue Ying without losing out. But none could really defeat Xue Ying at all! The <Scarlet Cloud Combat Technique> was a secret cultivation technique of the Fan Clan. There was naturally reasons for this being the case.
The huge magic dragon coiled in midair. The surrounding void tsunami was rolling out. On the back of the magic dragon, the white-robed young man ‘Xue Ying’ looked down roaring out: “Unless there is nobody in the Sky Sword Sect who dares to meet my challenge?” His voice boomed across the world.
The entire sect became quiet.
“Ying Shan Xue Ying, you are too egotistical!” Finally, a roar was heard.
A violet-robed male flew up. He had a cold look on his face as he stood in midair. Mo Chao was currently facing against the white-robed young man.
“He is here!”
“They are about to fight!”
“It is Thunder King Mo Chao.”
“Mo Chao is also one of the two great protectors of the Sky Sword Sect. He has once defeated the ‘Stone Jade Devil King’. I’ve heard that he has even crossed the ‘Ten Calamity Bridge’ from the Myriad Realms Ancient Nation and had obtained an enormous opportunity.”
Various sides were discussing with each other.
For him to take on the role as the chief manager for Sky Sword Sect’s advancement into the Black Devil Four Nations, Thunder King Mo Chao was indeed famous. Even His Highness Blaze Wind and others had to show him some respect.
“You are Mo Chao?” Xue Ying said.
“You actually dared to blockade the entrance of my Sky Sword Sect Palace! What gall! Let’s not spout any more rubbish. Receive my move.” Mo Chao suddenly roared. At the same time, he turned into a rolling thunder stream, forming an illusory liquefied figure. He held onto a similar liquid-like god sword and leaped over at Xue Ying in a flash.
“You are overestimating yourself.” Xue Ying’s voice boomed. He flipped his hand.
His palm suddenly expanded. Five faint light strands appeared on the surface of his fingers before they were used to directly grab Mo Chao!
Mo Chao who had turned himself into an electrified liquid figure felt his heart trembling. He tried escaping.
But the heaven-defying palm came down at once!
Five Phases Sealing Technique!
Even ultra-long distance teleportation techniques could not be used to escape. Any kinds of fleeing methods were futile. That large palm which was emitting light grabbed Mo Chao.
“No, no–!” Mo Chao struggled in despair, only to see countless thunder flashing by the gaps of the fingers.
“Break apart for me!”
A thunderclap flashed out from the sword.
Xue Ying’s seemingly huge palm had many gaps between his fingers. But in reality, the Five Phases Sealing Technique sealed every part of space itself, revealing no holes open. This was the perfect fusion of five tenth level moves, and its power sufficed to bring despair to other tenth level experts! There might be some Primal Chaos experts who existed in the entire Realm Heart Great Land that could break this move, but Mo Chao was still quite lacking.
In front of the many cultivators who fell into a daze, Xue Ying kept his palm. The Five Phase Beads had already floated on the bracelet which he wore on his right hand. The Five Phase Beads were all currently emitting light. At the next moment, a fist-sized space flew towards one of the beads. That fist-sized space contained a thunder figure within that was holding on to a sword and struggling to free himself. The sword techniques were horrifying and strange, yet that figure was still kept into one of the Five Phase Beads.
The Five Phase Beads, any of the bead held a void world within. They were the most appropriate places to imprison the enemies.
Xue Ying felt that capturing the other party was much more beneficial to him than killing him.
In the distance, there were many disciples from the royal family and the aristocratic Marquis clans. All of them, including the other cultivators, were stunned. Many of them were powerful or had high statuses, and were clear how formidable Thunder King Mo Chao was.
He defeated Stone Jade Devil King with his sword, crossed the Ten Calamity Bridge, and was one of the two protectors for the Sky Sword Sect!
But he was simply grabbed by a palm just like that?
“Five Phases Sealing Technique?” His Highness Blaze Wind situated in the Sky Sword Sect Palace felt his expression shifting, “The Five Phases Sealing Technique? How could this be? The Five Phases Sealing Technique has appeared again?”
“He actually succeeded in grasping the Five Phases Sealing Technique? A Primal Chaos expert actually succeeded in training the Five Phases Sealing Technique?” The Hundred-Battle Devil God Fan Chu Hu also looked upwards. The previous time he saw this secret cultivation technique was during the second War of the Ancient Nations.
