Chapter 1070: Getting The Treasure
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Calmly sitting there, Xue Ying took over the Devil Heart Bell and sent his consciousness into it.
The sweet-sounding ringing sound suddenly echoed in the mind of Xue Ying, causing him to feel a jolt in his concentration. He felt bliss in his soul. Even as an expert who cultivated the Mirage and Illusory Realm to the pinnacle of Primal Chaos realm, he could not help but feel himself relaxing slightly.
Following that, his consciousness began permeating deeper into the bell.
Within the little bell, there was a huge vast world. The surface of this world was covered in white fog, with many scenes emerging and vanishing within. It caused Xue Ying to feel the desire to jump into them. Xue Ying even saw his wife ‘Jing Qiu’ within the scenes that were emerging and vanishing. He saw his daughter and his teacher Gu Qi who died…
Accompanied by some of the white fog that enticed Xue Ying, the vast world deep in the Devil Heart Bell was also evolving. It developed and formed Jing Qiu, Dong Bo Yu, Qing Yao, Chi Qiu Bai, his teacher Bloodshed God Emperor, Gu Qi, and others.
‘This treasure is so formidable!’ Xue Ying might feel his heart desire deepening over time, but his realm was extraordinary too. This Devil Heart Bell was not being controlled by an owner, so Xue Ying could still maintain control of himself.
‘This is also a treasure with two Dao paths.’
‘One is on ‘Bewilderment’, and the other is on the ‘world’.’
Xue Ying felt delighted in his heart.
The Mirage and Illusory Realm had several Dao paths. He had inspected a total of eight secret treasures one after another, with half of them on the ‘world’ aspect. After all, for an illusory realm to be sufficiently effective, it had to form a world that seemed real! Illusions that were not ‘sufficiently real’, would not be able to effectively engulf ultra-strong experts within.
As for other Dao paths, like the ‘Bewilderment’, ‘Desire’, ‘Slaughter’ and ‘Fantasy’, they represented different directions of the Mirage and Illusory Realm.
There were a total of two that contained the ‘world’ path and another Dao path—Devil Heart Bell and the Heart of Desire.
‘Both the Devil Heart Bell and Heart of Desire are appropriate for me.’ Xue Ying made his decision.
Of the eight secret treasures, both the Devil Heart Bell and the Heart of Desire were ranked first.
“Sir Xue Ying, how is it?” That manager saw Xue Ying placing the Devil Heart Bell down before asking it with a smile.
“This secret treasure is not bad. How is the price?” Xue Ying asked.
“16 billion cosmos crystals!” The manager said.
Xue Ying made his decision there and then.
He had decided almost instantaneously that the treasure he would be purchasing would be this Heart of Desire! As for that Devil Heart Bell, despite negotiating several times, the price was still fixed at 15 billion cosmos crystals, and that was too high.
“It’s too expensive.” Xue Ying shook his head, “Even though it has two Dao paths, how many cultivators are there who could utilize them fully?”
“There are ultimately some.” The manager grinned.
“If this is the price, then we can just let the owner of the secret treasure wait for the appropriate customer.” Xue Ying stood up.
The manager immediately chuckled after seeing that: “Sir Xue Ying doesn’t have to be overly anxious. The lowest price over at our side is 15 billion cosmos crystals, and Sir Xue Ying still thinks of negotiating it further. That would depend on the consignee then.”
“The price is still relatively on the higher side. I’ll have a look at other secret treasures since there are a total of eight pieces.” Xue Ying smiled, “Even though I need the treasure, the price is a critical consideration too.”
“Relax, relax, I’ll definitely help SIr Xue Ying and lower the price to the furthest.” The manager added.
It would be hugely beneficial to him if he could sell a piece.
After all, 10 billion cosmos crystals were something this shop earned after so many years because this price was something only that ‘Thistle Flower King’ from the Thistle Flower Nation could afford.
After all, this manager was not sure how much Xue Ying liked this secret treasure.
After finishing checking out all eight secret treasures, Xue Ying continued strolling around the Realm Heart Great Land. He would travel around and enjoy the delicacies and drinks from all over the place. He would continue to negotiate further with the owner of that secret treasure.
“I’ve already chosen the other secret treasure that I would be buying if this price isn’t lowered further.”
“Three days! I’ll decide after three days to purchase it.”
“No other choice. It seems I have no fate with this secret treasure.”
Xue Ying continued negotiating with the owners of the secret treasures through the managers from the eight different locations.
He was continuing to give them pressure.
Three months after finishing inspecting all secret treasures, Xue Ying finally made his final decision. He even returned to the Southern Cloud Nation again to exchange 10,000 contribution points for one billion cosmos crystals.
Thistle Flower Capital.
A white-robed young man was walking in the Thistle Flower Capital. He felt casual at this moment.
‘I am really fated with this Thistle Flower Nation. It seems I am back here again. That time, I had decided that the third secret treasure I would be inspecting is the Devil Heart Bell, yet I revealed my identity because of my actions, causing me to delay it until it became the last treasure I inspected. Nevertheless, I still chose it in the end.’ Xue Ying chuckled. His figure suddenly turned illusory, and he disappeared. The next moment, he arrived within the Fan Clan shop in the Thistle Flower Capital.
“Are the 13.6 billion cosmos crystals accounted for?” Xue Ying sat there looking at the manager.
“They are, they are!” The eyes of the manager were filled with great enthusiasm. He passed the Devil Heart Bell over to Xue Ying, “Right now, this secret treasure is Sir Xue Ying’s.”
Xue Ying suppressed his excitement. He took over this piece of Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasure.
For the 13.6 billion cosmos crystals…
He spent almost all his effort.
The Sky Sword Dao redeemed Thunder King Mo Chao and his two secret treasures for eight billion cosmos crystals. He had exchanged his contribution points for another four billion cosmos crystals. As for the remaining, one part had come from Thunder King Mo Chaos’ storage treasure which he saved up for many years. All those precious materials added up to a total of about one billion cosmos crystals. And the final part was when Xue Ying killed Chang Su Wang and those Primal Chaos Devils who ran rampant in the Ardent Fire City. These treasures added up to about one billion cosmos crystals too.
After gathering all his riches, he was able to finally gather 13.6 billion cosmos crystals. Xue Ying even mortgaged those Void Lineage inspect corpses of his for a price 85% that of what he bought them for!
Currently, Xue Ying had barely 300 million cosmos crystals at hand.
‘I’ve practically spent finished all my savings.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly.
To this, he still felt relatively satisfied.
After all, those treasures and cosmos crystals could not transform into strength! This Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasure could instead greatly improve his strength! By then, he would stand unparalleled across all tenth level experts. Even when facing against Cosmos Gods, a tenth level Mirage and Illusory Realm technique would greatly reduce their strength! When those Cosmos Gods faced with another horrifying ‘Five Phases Sealing Technique’, they would likely be suppressed.
The usage of these two great techniques had greatly improved Xue Ying’s strength.
Furthermore, he still had another 20,000 contribution points which were enough to train the Southern Cloud Sacred Body to the pinnacle for his other avatar, increasing his survivability. In Xue Ying’s plan, it was okay if the avatar of his was good at surviving.
Below the Cosmos God Realm, the Southern Cloud Sacred Body could reach tenth level grand perfection at most.
If he succeeded to become a Cosmos God, there was still an 11th and 12th level! These were body cultivation techniques that the Southern Cloud Sacred Master personally created. It was considered quite an incredibly strong survival cultivation technique in tier two and three nations. Of course, compared to the six great ancient nations, it was still slightly lacking.
Xue Ying felt joyous. He casually returned to the Southern Cloud Nation. But just before he even entered his Flying Snow City, he received the voice transmission from his teacher.
“Xue Ying.” The voice sounded by Xue Ying’s ears, “Remember, if the Fan Clan comes to find your help, you must not accept it directly.”
