Chapter 1142: Sea Domain Origin
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
“Haha, it seems Xue Ying has gained quite a lot in his trip to the Realm Heart God Palace. For him to persist in there for more than 100 million years and to be this strong, is it because he has found a top-graded secret treasure?” Southern Cloud King shook his head with a smile, “This disciple of mine seems more fortunate than his teacher, I! Thinking back to the past, how much effort did I put in just to get my top-graded secret treasure?”
In order to get the top-graded secret treasure, ‘Twin Realm Blade’, Southern Cloud King was forced to swear an oath. Furthermore, this ‘teacher’ of his, the Undying Underworld Emperor, who was an ancient existence that existed before the First War of the Ancient Nations, actually came back alive.
Otherwise, given the strength of the Southern Cloud King, it was impossible for Undying Underworld Emperor to do anything to him even if he chose to disobey the oath.
But Southern Cloud King wasn’t willing to do so until a critical moment.
“Paragon Master? This Ying Shan Xue Ying seems really fortunate!”
“I’ve entered the Realm Heart God Palace before. Yet I did not breakthrough nor did I get a top-graded secret treasure.”
The experts that received the piece of news like Fire Devil Paragon Master and others began having thoughts about it. They were either envious, jealous, or rueful.
After all, the Fan Clan only had a total of six Great Paragons after such a long period! It was really not an easy task to become a Paragon Master.
Realm Heart God Palace.
Within that grand palace stood three figures–Xue Ying, Paragon Master Bewitching Sword, and Black Sovereign. They had just completed the 12th stage.
“News spread really fast.” Xue Ying shook his head.
“Haha, Brother Flying Snow, it is naturally impossible for you to hide your current strength from the world.” Black Sovereign chuckled, “But you are really vigilant. Even though you are this strong, you still let Bewitching Sword and Pu Su help you.”
After all, Pu Su had been expelled before even completing the 12th stage. Xue Ying was clearly powerful, yet he deliberately disguised himself as a weak cultivator. Black Sovereign was saying this to incite disharmony.
He was clear that the Summer Wind Ancient Nation was slightly prejudiced against outsiders. Only the Fan Clan treated outsiders relatively better.
Paragon Master Bewitching Sword merely replied: “Flying Snow is an Honored Guest of my Summer Wind Ancient Nation. It is natural for him to work together with us. With his Mirage and Illusory Realm, we were able to complete several stages without expending as much effort! If Brother Flying Snow could help us in the 12th stage with his Mirage and Illusory Realm, Pu Su wouldn’t have lost.”
The Mirage and Illusory Realm had influenced every single protector, causing the overall combat formation strength to diminish. Hence, it was probable for Paragon Master Pu Su to win his battle.
Xue Ying glanced at Paragon Master Bewitching Sword. He was relatively grateful for his understanding.
In reality, the ‘combined technique’ had been the final move he altered in the Scarlet Cloud Combat Technique. The original combined technique was a three-men combined technique! And now, Xue Ying had altered it for nine avatars to use. Furthermore, it was adapted to allow Chaotic Origin Energy to be applied to his techniques. Xue Ying spent quite a lot of effort to do so. Only when he succeeded in creating this combined technique could he reach his current strength with his nine avatars.
“Ka ka ka~”
And now, three stone platforms started rising on the floor of the palace hall. Each platform had a stone box placed on top of it.
The eyes of Paragon Master Bewitching Sword, Black Sovereign, and Xue Ying brightened. They spent so much effort crossing the 12 stages all for this moment! It was time they were rewarded.
The three of them went forward. They moved according to their senses towards their respective stone platform, lightly placing their hands on a stone box each.
It was practically simultaneous. All of them opened their boxes, revealing a joyous look, albeit Xue Ying was slightly more ‘shocked’ than excited.
‘It actually…?’ Xue Ying looked at the scarlet spherical bead placed within the stone box. The spherical bead contained many spots of light moving about. It also contained an extremely profound law. The light spots were constantly revolving about, and if one carefully focused on a particular light spot, one would see a unique cosmos.
That’s right, each light spot contained an actual cosmos!
‘Sea Domain Origin?’ Xue Ying paid notice to his peripheral vision at the treasures placed in the other two stone boxes. The treasures bestowed upon them were relatively normal–valued at about 100 billion cosmos crystals.
‘Why would I be given a bead of Sea Domain Origin?’ Xue Ying was incomparably shocked.
Sea Domain Origin.
That was something incredibly precious. It could be used as the foundation in forming a Sea Domain, allowing the user to become a Sea Domain Master. Within the Sea Domain, the master would be strengthened by various supportive forces. Furthermore, being a Sea Domain Master would greatly boost one’s cultivation rate in the Dao of Void.
At the same time, this ‘Sea Domain Origin’ could be used to refine weapons or turn into the core of a puppet. It could also be taken as the core of a cavern-dwelling. This was a precious treasure that one could hope for but not get it. In terms of value, it was worth beyond ordinary top-graded secret treasures and was even rarer than them.
“Why would he be given a piece of Sea Domain Origin?”
“This legendary item has appeared?”
Black Sovereign and Paragon Master Bewitching Sword noticed what Xue Ying got. They were extremely shocked.
One could see how different the favorites of Realm Heart God Palace were treated.
When he completed the ninth stage, despite not entering from the first minor stage–also the 7th stage, and that Xue Ying had been protected by other cultivators, he was still given an equivalent treasure.
And now that he crossed the 12th stage while revealing his true strength, the treasure given to Monarch Flying Snow had been an entire level beyond what was given to others.
“Sou.” Xue Ying kept it.
The pupils of Black Sovereign dilated. At the same time, he surreptitiously transmitted: “Primogenitor, I discovered a bead of Sea Domain Origin. It has been given to Monarch Flying Snow when he crossed the 12th stage.”
Eternal Night Primogenitor was currently located in a huge public square within the Realm Heart God Palace. He was currently looking at a complex inscribed diagram in this place. After spending some time studying the diagram, he came to the conclusion that this inscribed diagram contained profound mysteries of the Supreme Law. Furthermore, there were some secrets hidden within. If he could unravel the mystery, he would be greatly rewarded.
Reaching their level, the Realm Heart God Palace had harsher demands to them. Hence, it was harder for them to get any rewards.
“Mn?” The white, tender face of Eternal Night Primogenitor changed as a strand of astonishment appeared in his eyes, “Sea Domain Origin? Monarch Flying Snow from the Southern Cloud Nation had been bestowed with a bead of Sea Domain Origin?”
“This treasure is a waste in his hands. It is destined to be mine.” Eternal Night Primogenitor revealed a grin.
Eternal Night Primogenitor was unquestionably the number one expert in refining magic servants. He refined the Nine Eternal Night Walkers that were all Cosmos God magic servants. Of which the strongest servant could compare against that of Southern Cloud King.
Nevertheless, Eternal Night Primogenitor was not satisfied. He had been seeking to refine an even more powerful magic servant. The refinement process was also some sort of cultivation to him. And naturally, to refine a more powerful magic servant, better materials had to be taken out.
“The Sea Domain Origin is the most appropriate material to be assumed as the core for light and dark.” Eternal Night Primogenitor revealed a smile. He then took a step and broke through the sky.
Not many experts dared to fly wantonly in the Realm Heart God Palace.
“Sea Domain Origin? Monarch Flying Snow, congratulations to you!” Black Sovereign sighed, “You really make me envious. The treasures bestowed to me and Bewitching Sword are normal, yet Monarch Flying Snow has been given a bead of Sea Domain Origin that is worth much more. It seems this Realm Heart God Palace favors you a lot.”
“It’s just luck.” Xue Ying began walking out of the palace hall.
“Why? Monarch Flying Snow is planning to leave already?” Black Sovereign asked, “Are you not going to continue until the 15th stage?”
Previously after getting the treasure, they were also informed about where the next three stages would be held at.
Nonetheless, Xue Ying understood his own capabilities. He did not own any top-graded secret treasure, and it was hard completing the 12th stage already. As for the 15th stage? It was hopeless for him!
Now that he chose to leave, he could still venture to other places in the Realm Heart God Palace.
Otherwise, if he were expelled during one of the later stages, that would mark the end of his journey in the Realm Heart God Palace.
“It is time for me to leave. Continuing is a waste of chance here.” Paragon Master Bewitching Sword also began walking out.
“I originally thought of attempting one or two more stages, but since the two of you have given up, I shall give up too. It is better to be a little more prudent.” Black Sovereign said, “Monarch Flying Snow, Paragon Master Bewitching Sword, what are your plans now?”
Xue Ying turned to Black Sovereign. He felt a strand of suspicion rising in his heart.
When did he become so nosy?
Furthermore, ancient nations would usually not share the intelligence they got within the Realm Heart God Palace with others. Like the three great clans in Summer Wind Ancient Nation? They weren’t even willing to share it with the Honored Guests.
“Hong!” A booming loud sound could be heard from afar as a frightening ripple spread out in all directions.
“What is going on?”
Xue Ying, Paragon Master Bewitching Sword, and Black Sovereign just walked out of the palace hall when they turned to the distance.
“Given how frightening the fluctuations are, it should be made from an unparalleled existence.” Paragon Master Bewitching Sword added.
The moment he finished speaking.
A brilliant light flashed in the distance. Xue Ying and the others discovered a figure condensing in the sky. This figure was covered in a golden-edged black cape. Currently, the golden edges were lit up. He had a white tender face and looked handsome. When he looked downwards at the group of Cosmos Gods, it felt as if he was peering into the souls of those present.
This unseen pressure startled Xue Ying and Paragon Master Bewitching Sword.
“Eternal Night Primogenitor.” Xue Ying immediately recognized this ancient unparalleled existence.
‘Why is it so coincidental for Eternal Night Primogenitor to come here?’ Xue Ying felt his heart trembling. Thinking about the properties of the ‘Sea Domain Origin’, and recalling back about the pile of words spouted by Black Sovereign abnormally…
“Monarch Flying Snow, be careful! That frightening combat ripples should be made by Eternal Night Primogenitor. He seemed to have rushed over at high speed without slowing down through some of the dangers existing in the Realm Heart God Palace! Yet he actually stopped before us! He most likely came here without kind intentions. I’ll report upwards to His Majesty Emperor Summer. Try to delay for more time.” Paragon Master Bewitching Sword transmitted to Xue Ying. They were all intelligent and acute cultivators and could deduce easily how abnormal was it for Eternal Night Primogenitor to come here.
