Chapter 1128: Realm Heart God Palace
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
The world was filled with primal chaos.
When Xue Ying landed, the myriad existences had yet to emerge. The entire place was filled with drifting energy, lightning strikes, gale whistling, waves soaring, volcanoes erupting… and the black-robed Xue Ying came to sit cross-legged on a mountain peak. Being a Cosmos God, his immense willpower enveloped the entire world, thoroughly perceiving the constant changes the world was undergoing.
After 1,000 years, the sky and earth were finally divided evenly. The world reached an equilibrium.
Plants, aquatic animals, and insects started forming. Many different kinds of animals appeared too. Soon, the earliest forms of homo sapiens covered in thick hair began walking the world. At this moment, they were all barbaric.
A group of wild hunters soon discovered this black-robed man that sat on the mountain peak. Various phenomena could be seen happening around this black-robed man. A vague endless world could even be seen behind him, with the void either collapsing, tearing or severing apart around him. Nonetheless, everything was limited to just 100 meters away from him. These wild men conversed using a simplistic form of language while inching closer at the same time. They were curious about this creature who looked similar to them, yet had smooth skin.
But as they reached the hundred meters mark, they could no longer get closer. Some unseen force was stopping them from proceeding forward.
This group of wild men exchanged glances before they each roared out. Soon, all of them began kneeling down and kowtowing to the black-robed figure.
This tribe which existed closest to him drew a totem, one that depicted the scene of the black-robed man seated.
Xue Ying was focusing on the constant transformations the void underwent. The mountain peak he sat had a beguiling array surrounded on it. Only those fortunate ones could get closer to him in intervals of a hundred years. Some of the phenomena which he practiced could be comprehended by those who were intelligent enough. Xue Ying wanted to determine if it was possible for Transcendents to emerge in this world where only mortals lived.
A young man got the opportunity of crossing through the beguiling array, reaching Xue Ying before comprehending an absolutely powerful sword technique that could defeat ten thousand with a strike.
There was even an old man who passed through the beguiling array, saw Xue Ying before comprehending a cultivation technique. He lived past the 100 years mark, yet remained stuck as a mortal.
Soon, Xue Ying understood.
This ‘World Flower’ changed too quickly from blossoming to wither. As it changed, the void was transforming too, and the internal laws were also being adjusted. Even if one comprehended the law and profound mysteries, the law of the world changed too fast such that what the person comprehended had become ‘out of date’. He would no longer be able to control this world energy. Given this speed of transformation, even a more talented mortal could not jump out of mortality to become a Transcendent. And even so, once the law changed, his strength would rapidly drop until he became a mortal again.
Only Cosmos Gods whereby laws were forced to deviate from them, would not be influenced by this transformation.
“This is so mysterious! Even the laws are changing constantly.” Xue Ying exclaimed, “There is also the transformation of the Dao of Void…”
There were many kinds of Dao of Void that was unfolding before him.
Even if an unparalleled existence practiced techniques for a junior, he could only show eight to ten variations. Yet this World Flower seemed to be showing gradually an entire set of Dao of Void technique that lasted for a full 100,000 years! Xue Ying estimated that it was quite impossible for a final realm Cosmos God to practice and show his technique that would be so complete as to what he was currently viewing.
“A World Flower enables me to perceive the complete Dao of Void! Nine World Flowers represent nine opportunities. If the other World Flowers are different, does it mean that they could still transform into other kinds of variations?” Xue Ying looked forward to it.
His horizons were constantly being broadened.
Even personal disciples of unparalleled existences would not have this kind of treatment. It’s a pity that nine opportunities meant a total of ‘nine 100,000 years’. If only this was longer.
Realm Heart Great Land.
Xue Ying arrived at the Southern Cloud Capital.
“Teacher, I want two sets of materials that could allow me to cultivate the Southern Cloud Sacred Body to 12th grand perfection.” Xue Ying found his teacher, Southern Cloud King.
Southern Cloud King was slightly startled: “Two sets?”
Previously, he had given Xue Ying a set already.
Because he had mentioned before that he would be providing his disciple with sufficient materials to perfect his Southern Cloud Sacred Body for free once his realm reached the required level. Of course, this was just one set! Even if he was rich, he would not be able to provide a voluminous amount that could sustain the other party from re-training the body from scratch when an avatar died.
“This is the Devil Heart Bell. It should be sufficient for me to pawn it for two sets of materials.” Xue Ying smiled as he passed the item to his teacher, Southern Cloud King.
Southern Cloud King hesitated momentarily before taking it.
He originally did not care about it.
But his disciple would definitely feel uncomfortable if he continued providing benefits to his disciple for free.
“I did not collect that many materials that could allow one to train from scratch to grand perfection.” Southern Cloud King chuckled, “For you to ask for two sets now? Adding up the previous time, it’ll be a total of three. Why do you need so many? Having one main avatar fighting outside should be sufficient. Furthermore, you still have the Five Phase Beads and Scarlet Cloud God Spear. Training the Southern Cloud Sacred Body will not be that helpful to you.”
“I have a plan.” Xue Ying said.
“It seems you are really taking a huge gamble this time as you enter the Realm Heart God Palace.” Southern Cloud King waved his hand, causing a golden ring to fly over to Xue Ying, “This storage ring contains two sets of materials.”
Xue Ying received it.
The price of two materials was comparable to a single Devil Heart Bell.
Actually, the ‘Devil Heart Bell’ was no longer useful for him. 10 billion years since he became a Cosmos God, Xue Ying’s attainments in the ‘Mirage and Illusory Realm’ had been rising! Even though it was far weaker than the Dao of Void, he still had reached the Cosmos God Realm in three branches out of the five, ‘World’, ‘Bewilderment’, and ‘Desire’! The other two branches remained stuck at the Primal Chaos Realm.
As for fusing them? That was too far away.
One had to know that Xue Ying reached the Cosmos God Realm in all nine branches not too long after breaking through. And currently, Xue Ying had fused both the Sky Phase with the Earth Phase, reaching the second Cosmos God Realm. He was at least improving faster in the Dao of Void than the Dao of Mirage.
No other way.
His foundation in the Dao of Void was too thick!
As for the Mirage and Illusory Realm, even though Xue Ying had been comprehending it all the time, and he had also gotten a precious scripture, the <Heart Realm>, this scripture nonetheless only led to the level-two Cosmos God Realm and was insufficient in its guidance towards the Mirage and Illusory Realm. As for the <Chaotic Origin Dao Scroll>, just training in the body refining technique required the use of eight branches. Hence, its guidance and theory towards various branches and fusing them were more detailed. Furthermore, his teacher, Southern Cloud King, was also a great expert in the Dao of Void. He had many scriptures. Xue Ying even created the <Nine Rotation Undying Technique> that fused the nine branches together right from the start. Thus, his foundation or external conditions were stellar.
Comparatively speaking, cultivating the Mirage and Illusory Realm was more taxing for him.
The ‘Devil Heart Bell’ was only a tenth Mirage and Illusory Realm technique. It contained two great techniques, one of the beguiling sound and the other of the world. Xue Ying had reached the Cosmos God Realm in both branches already. Hence, he did not have to rely on the Devil Heart Bell to execute the techniques! He could even utilize profound mysteries from three branches.
‘With these two materials, my power will increase by a few times. I must grab hold of every opportunity during this visit to the Realm Heart God Palace.’ Xue Ying thought.
He understood that Xue Ying would no longer have the chance to enter a second time before the destruction of his hometown Primal Chaos Void.
100,000 years after the Realm Heart God Palace started releasing fluctuations.
“Come to the Summer Wind Royal Palace right now.” Emperor Summer’s voice sounded by the ears of Xue Ying.
Within the meditation room.
There were nine ‘Xue Ying’s that currently sat here in cross-legged. Even though he had more than 10,000 avatars, he could only maintain nine at the peak state.
“It’s time to set off.”
Nine of them stood up together.
The other eight transformed into light and flew into the Eden Treasure. And Xue Ying merely waved his hand, forming a Destructive Realm Teleportation passage that headed to the outskirts of Summer Wind Capital.
Arriving outside the capital, Xue Ying entered through the city doors and soon arrived before the royal palace.
He had reached there almost the same time as Fire Devil Paragon Master did. The two of them were the last two to arrive.
“Emperor Summer, Emperor Cang.” Xue Ying greeted the two.
Emperor Summer remained entirely in black. The unseen aura coming from him felt empty and fleeting, yet supreme at the same time as if it was overlooking down on the commoners. And on the other side, ‘Emperor Cang’ caused his surroundings to feel vast and grand as if inviting the advent of a giant terror. Every single action of his seemed like it would snuff out some of the weaker Cosmos Gods. Yet Xue Ying understood this power of grandiose come from owning supreme-graded secret treasure.
“Everyone is here.” The gaze of Emperor Summer swept across before he nodded, “Bear in mind, none of you is allowed to bring any other sentient creatures with you! Even pets aren’t permitted. Every intelligent creature would be counted as a quota as it enters.”
Everyone including Xue Ying knew of this common knowledge.
Of course, avatars and incarnations weren’t counted because they originated from the same soul.
Emperor Summer and Emperor Cang brought them along.
Within the next instance, they arrived above the endless Black Prison Yin Sea. Waves could be seen surging up violently, and the seawater was just black.
Emperor Summer immediately dove down with that group of people. It was almost at that instance that he bypassed through the entire sea layer. “Pu pu pu pu…” Deep underneath the sea, layers of obstacles were present-these hindrances came from the Realm Heart God Palace. After penetrating through the stone layer at the seabed, Xue Ying and the others could finally see a chain of grand palaces deep underneath. They emitted light which brightened the entire place. Many strands of mysterious aura pervaded through the numerous palaces that felt like those coming from top-graded secret treasures or more frightening ones that seemingly originated from supreme-graded secret treasures. This feeling moved the hearts of every single Cosmos Gods present.
