Chapter 1062: Seeking for Treasures

“Good.” Southern Cloud King looked at Xue Ying with a look filled with praise. He nodded, “My Southern Cloud Sacred Religion has fought for eons with the Sky Sword Sect and has always been disadvantaged. This time, they advanced into the Fiery Zhao Nation like a torrential wave, but Xue Ying has grasped the ‘Five Phases Sealing Technique’, forcing them to retreat and admit defeat, causing them to suffer from losses. Haha, Xue Ying, your contribution this time is huge so I will award you with 60,000 contribution points.”
What the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion gained this time is far beyond the value of ‘60,000 contribution points’. But as the King had previously given Xue Ying the ‘Five Phase Beads’, it was considered making up for the difference in effort. That was a Cosmos God top-graded secret treasure.
“Many thanks, Teacher.” Xue Ying said.
“Congratulations Junior Disciple Brother, congratulations to you.” Monarch Greedy Peng smiled, “The first time you conducted a mission for Teacher, and you have earned a total of 60,000 contribution points. Adding up what I have earned, I only acquired 60,000 contribution points after becoming a Cosmos God.”
“Eldest Disciple Brother, both Senior DIsciple Brother Gong Liang and I have not reached that amount even until now!” Empress Ghost Li added. At the same time, her gaze towards Xue Ying brightened. Pride filled her bones. Even though there were a few who had been taken for her to seek pleasure, they were all considered her playthings! She had never genuinely considered them as her target for a companion. Currently, she actually felt that it was quite pleasant to entwine her life with this little disciple brother of his as Dao companions!
Gong Liang Yi watched Xue Ying. He sighed inwardly.
He had always thought that he was the most outstanding disciple his teacher had.
As for Eldest Disciple Brother Greedy Peng? Greedy Peng was originally the follower of the Southern Cloud King. When the King was in miserable straits, Greedy Peng did not leave the King, and the King was someone who treated camaraderie as something important. That was why he spent a large number of resources to nurture Greedy Peng. In reality, Monarch Greedy Peng cultivated in an art that wasn’t of the void lineage! And what Gong Liang Yi cultivated was of the void lineage, and was also the most outstanding one.
‘This Little Disciple Brother rises really quickly, so fast that it makes other speechless.’ Gong Liang Yi sighed.
“Junior Disciple Brother Xue Ying, we know that you have captured that protector from the Sky Sword Sect with a single move after using the Five Phases Sealing Technique. Everyone likes that scene a lot. Even though we all know that our Southern Cloud Sacred Religion has that absolute art, we have never seen before someone using it.” Fu Ling Xiao spoke.
“Junior Disciple Brother Xue Ying, hopefully, you can broaden our perspective when the time comes.”
All of them were saying it.
“Alright, alright, in a while, all you disciple brothers, do note that there will be a banquet held later. You can chat again later on.” Southern Cloud King laughed.
Monarch Greedy Peng, Xue Ying, Gong Liang Yi, Empress Ghost Li, Fu Ling Yun, and Fu Ling Xiao acknowledged in an orderly manner.
The crowd then left to participate in the banquet that was about to begin. This was a massive victory for the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion as they had even gotten great benefits in the Towering Sky Ancient Nation. Naturally, they had to celebrate.
“Xue Ying, stay behind.” Southern Cloud King ordered.
Xue Ying was left alone with his teacher after that.
“This is the eight billion cosmos crystals which Sky Sword King gave.” Southern Cloud King threw out a wristband over to Xue Ying.
Xue Ying took it and checked through. There were cosmos crystals piled up like a mountain. He then said: “Teacher, help me exchange for another three more billion cosmos crystals from the 60,000 contribution points that I have.”
As a personal disciple, 10,000 contribution points could be exchanged for a billion cosmos crystal worth of precious materials or treasures. They could even be used directly to exchange for cosmos crystals.
“Oh? You need so many cosmos crystals?” Southern Cloud King felt startled. Nonetheless, he flipped his hand and threw over another storage treasure. The cosmos crystals gotten from the various palaces across the entire Realm Heart Great Land were eventually gathered in the hands of the Southern Cloud King. Hence, he had so many cosmos crystals that it would frighten others.
“Disciple is thinking of buying a Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasure.” Xue Ying said. After all, he was planning to purchase it, and there was no need to conceal this from his teacher.
“Oh?” Southern Cloud King’s eyes brightened, “You specialize in the Mirage and Illusory Realm. That time when you dealt against that Chang Su Wang, what you used is the Mirage and Illusory Realm?”
“Yes.” Xue Ying nodded.
“Has it reached the pinnacle?” Southern Cloud King asked.
“Yes.” Xue Ying nodded again.
Southern Cloud King felt his eyes widening. His heart beat even began quickening. Only after a while did he gradually calm down. He understood that he was really underestimating this disciple of his.
It was very hard to train in the Five Phases Sealing Technique already.
And techniques on the soul aspect were known for being difficult too. Just trying to grasp the Mirage and Illusory realm at the ninth level wasn’t any less difficult than grasping the Five Phases Sealing Technique. Because techniques dealing against the soul were all abstract and hardest to interact with. Just like how when Xue Ying created the ‘Illusory Realm World’, it was an entirely new world by itself with many living beings inside. All of them were beings whom Xue Ying felt were real. Each creature had his or her own personality, and their personal journey…
Such a technique was extremely frightening. Xue Ying was also the most heaven-defying talent in the Mirage and Illusory Realm within the Primal Chaos Void origin world!
He had cultivated for long periods, and after creating the ‘nine-petaled Destruction Flower’, accumulating experience and wisdom for a trillion years, only then did Xue Ying finally create the ninth level technique, the ‘Illusory Realm World’. Even with his massive talent in this aspect, it still took so long. One could see how difficult it was.
“You have such a great talent in the Mirage and Illusory realm.” Southern Cloud King sighed.
It was fortunate.
There had been quite a few cultivators who reincarnated from other Origin World into the Realm Heart Great Land. Hence, there were many more with talents higher than Xue Ying! Besides, given how deep the foundation the Realm Heart Great Land had, many unparalleled existences spent time and effort in nurturing these talented cultivators, reducing the difficulty of grasping the ninth level in Mirage and Illusory Realm than that in the Primal Chaos Void.
In the Primal Chaos Void, there had been no scriptures written by any predecessors! Xue Ying had to open up the path all by himself.
And here, he had found a total of 18 scriptures just in the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion alone on Mirage and Illusory Realm. There were even more ninth level scriptures and two that reached the Cosmos God realm! If these scriptures existed in the Primal Chaos Void, Xue Ying questioned himself—he knew that he could create the Illusory Realm World ten times faster!
Opening the path himself and being guided by the predecessors naturally two different things.
But by entirely relying on himself, even though he suffered from more difficulties during the journey, it strengthened the foundation Xue Ying had in the Mirage and Illusory Realm.
“When are you prepared to go buy the Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasure?” Southern Cloud King questioned with a smile.
“After the banquet. I’d like to leave a little earlier since this disciple is feeling slightly impatient already.” Xue Ying laughed.
Southern Cloud King nodded with a smile. He understood too that this disciple of his had already reached the pinnacle of Mirage and Illusory Realm when he killed Chang Su Wang. It’s just that he had never borrowed any cosmos crystals from the King, significantly increasing the favor the Southern Cloud King had on this disciple. The King also understood that this disciple had great talent in two lineages—the Void lineage and the Mirage and Illusory realm lineage. If this were the past, there would still be several heaven-defying disciples nurtured by the six great ancient nations who could defeat his disciple. But now? Cultivating in both lineages, the Southern Cloud King felt that in the entire Realm Heart Great Land, his disciple would be hard-pressed to find an enemy who could defeat him!
“But remember not to be complacent.” Southern Cloud King could not help but remind his disciple, “Those who are truly talented have all become Cosmos Gods. Like Paragon Jia Luo from the ‘Towering Sky Ancient Nation’, he was the only one before you that succeeded in grasping the Five Phases Sealing Technique at the Primal Chaos Realm. Currently, he is already a paragon in the Towering Sky Ancient Nation.”
“I understand.” Xue Ying nodded.
He always cast his gaze towards becoming a Cosmos God, and even sought to reach the height where ‘Sacred Master’ was!
After the banquet.
Xue Ying kept his aura and left the Southern Cloud Ancient Nation alone. He was currently visiting different places in search of more Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasures.
In the entire Realm Heart Great Land, there were eight pieces of Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasures at the tenth level grade that were sold to the public! The publicly acknowledged price was between 12 billion to 20 billion cosmos crystals, and Xue Ying wanted to personally check through the items before finding out if they suited him or not!
Because to him, this Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasure could not only improve his strength, it could also allow him to unleash a tenth level technique earlier. This was a Cosmos God level technique, and by using it at the Primal Chaos Realm, Xue Ying could feel how it is to utilize the move. This would be hugely helpful to his breakthrough to the Cosmos God Realm! He always sought to become a Cosmos God in the Void Dao, and he was similarly placing all his effort in this Mirage and Illusory Realm Dao path too.
He went to various places to check the items.
In the blink of an eye, Xue Ying arrived at the Black Prison Yin Sea. There was island country formed by several hundred thousand islands together, known as the ‘Thistle Flower Nation’. This was also the place that held the third Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasure.
