Chapter 591: Cosmos Epoch
Translator: Radiant Editor: Radiant Bloodshed God Emperor chuckled and nodded as he looked at this. He was delighted with this disciple, Xue Ying, of his. Over the many years, he had seen many stage four World Deities with great innate talents, and he had taught many of these outstanding ones. Amongst which, those who successfully transcended were Monarch Gu Zang and Monarch Green! But those who made him feel satisfied and pleased were few and far between.
Most of them were too arrogant. There was only a gap between complacency and confidence! Any powerful existences should be self-confident, but many had become overly so. Naturally, they would grow blind, and it would be hard for them to walk a further path.
Bloodshed felt that amongst his disciples, he was most satisfied with Monarch Green. The next person would then be Xue Ying.
“With how calm and reserved he is, I believe it isn’t hard for him to transcend. In the future, there is hope of him opening his own Dao path too.” Bloodshed God Emperor thought.
“Xue Ying.” Bloodshed God Emperor said, “The Monarchs of the Five places have their own respective forbidden ground too.”
“Forbidden grounds?” Xue Ying was startled.
“Mn.” Bloodshed God Emperor nodded, “Ever since the Great Apocalypse of the cosmos, the cosmos will reform, forming many unique places in the entire vast Deity world that are beneficial to cultivation. My Bloodshed God Palace territory have five such places, and naturally, I’ll deem these five places as forbidden grounds for the Monarchs of the Five places. Now, two have their owners, leaving the remaining three for you to select.”
Xue Ying was carefully listening.
“Of the five places, the ‘Corpse Burial Cavern’ and ‘Ice Origin Planet’ have owners already, leaving behind the remaining three–Black Fog Sea, Fire God Tree, and Lightning Island.” Bloodshed God Emperor introduced.
“Corpse Burial Cavern?” Xue Ying was dumbstruck. This name did not sound comfortable to him, yet it was one of the five forbidden grounds, and had been chosen already?
“Teacher, is the Corpse Burial Cavern also a land of treasure?” Xue Ying could not help but ask.
Bloodshed God Emperor lightly chuckled, “The Corpse Burial Cavern is a very ordinary-looking cavern on the surface, and it is merely a few meters wide. But the moment one enters, it is actually an Eden world! The Eden world contains many corpses. It is an ancient battlefield of the second cosmos epoch, and of the corpses within, there are two Rulers’ corpses! Do you think its not a land of treasure? That place is very appropriate for your Senior Disciple Brother Gu Zang; thus, he chose it.”
“There are two corpses of Rulers?” Xue Ying was very shocked. But if he were given a choice, he would not select a place filled with corpses. This was forbidden ground for himself.
“Even if you want to choose, you can’t select it. Let me briefly explain the remaining three places.” Bloodshed God Emperor said, “The Black Fog Sea is a place filled with much black fog within the starry sky. The black fog has been naturally formed from the cosmos, and the moment one enters, there will be many illusions appearing. The deeper one enters, the stronger the illusions. With my combat power, I could barely reach the deepest end within the black fog. Those who are weaker will most likely be trapped within, eternally unable to regain their consciousness.”
“Illusions?” Xue Ying nodded.
“The Fire God Tree is a huge tree. This huge tree has been rooted in the void and is about 195,000 kilometers in diameter. The entire tree is burning in flame eternally. Those who want to cultivate over here include many, like Paragon Huo Cheng whom you are close to, he has cultivated there before. Naturally, his teacher Primal Master had paid quite a huge price for it, only then did I allow him to cultivate for 10,000 years there. After 10,000 years, I’d chased him away.” Bloodshed God Emperor chuckled, “The final place is the Lightning Island, and is located at a place similar to the Temporal Island. It is an empty island. The Temporal Island is located in a unique place where time-space could hardly arrive at, and the Lightning Island is flourishing with myriad lightning and also a place full of extraordinary things.”
“Select a place.” Bloodshed God Emperor said.
Xue Ying pondered for a while, “Black Fog Sea!”
“You chose this place?” Bloodshed God Emperor laughed, “It seems the case indeed that you emphasize your profound mysteries of the world the most.”
Xue Ying chuckled, “Nothing can be hidden from Teacher.”
Black Fog Sea…
Even Bloodshed God Emperor could barely reach the end of the Black Fog Sea. Those who were weaker would be immersed in the hallucination world for eternity. This hallucination, firstly, it was an ‘illusion’ and the other was sketching the outlines of a world. It was relatively close to the Mirage, and besides with the ‘Dao of Mirage’ in his True God weapon Flying Knife, Xue Ying naturally would want to have proper research over it.
“The world specializes in encompassing and is indeed appropriate for you to cultivate. If your realm is high enough, you could use the World Deity Heart to encompass all laws of profound mysteries, forming a complete law of the world. By then, you would have transcended beyond the River of Time.” Bloodshed God Emperor nodded and praised.
Xue Ying nodded too. During transcending, the hardest matter was to fuse all Deity Hearts comprehended into a complete entity.
As for grasping the other Deity Hearts?
It was tough to some stage four World Deities because they had absorbed belief energy. But Xue Ying had never depended on Belief Stones before. He cultivated for a short period of time too, so the karma formed was very little! Comprehending the ‘Karma Deity Heart’ was a simple matter, and even the tough Substance Deity Heart had been comprehended. He believed that the ‘Boundless Deity Heart’… would be comprehended after not too long later.
With the World Deity Heart that completely encompassed everything, fusing together everything into a single entity in the end! This formed the law of the world!
That was also known as large success!
“As for transcending, you should focus on this as well. Firstly, your cultivation must focus more on the full law of the world. You can’t seek strength, and madly comprehend all sorts of other secret techniques! Seeking the strength of the secret techniques alone.” Bloodshed God Emperor reminded him.
“I can’t pursue strength too madly?” Xue Ying was bewildered.
“Look at Bamboo Mountain as an example, and you will know it.” Bloodshed God Emperor had just finished saying when large amounts of information were transmitted to his disciple.
Xue Ying immediately sensed the communication treasure receiving a significant amount of information.
It was a considerable amount of detailed intelligence from the Deity world and Abyss, and it was so much more detailed than the one provided by Paragon Huo Cheng! Amongst which, there was a comprehensive introduction to Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master concerning his cultivation aspect.
“So it’s like this, only then did he not transcend?” Xue Ying was startled and enlightened at the same time.
“Understand?” Bloodshed God Emperor said.
“Disciple understands, but this stage is still far for me.” Xue Ying said.
“Mn, your foundation is not built deep enough, so there is no need for you to worry about this.” Bloodshed God Emperor said, “Furthermore, those who could achieve this stage as a stage four World Deity could be counted with one’s fingers in the many cosmos epochs! Our cosmos epoch only has Bamboo Mountain doing it.”
Xue Ying nodded.
“Also, if there’s any karma entangling you, you should resolve them as soon as possible.” Bloodshed God Emperor reminded, “Some karma might influence your cultivation.”
“Yes.” Xue Ying said.
He did not form much karma actually. More importantly, it was karma built with his loved ones and good friends. These karmas were benign, and would not affect his cultivation. Even the karma with ‘Forefather Scarlet Flame’ might be heavier, but that had been because Forefather Scarlet Flame saved Jing Qiu at that time! Still, Forefather Scarlet Flame was a friend and did not deliberately demanded Xue Ying to do anything, so the influence on him wasn’t huge.
Those who had an influence on him included Forefather Black Devil! Forefather Black Devil had been the one who killed Sacred Master Crimson Dust last time. He was Sacred Master Crimson Dust’s personal disciple, so naturally, he had enmity with him! But Sacred Master Crimson Dust did not require his disciples to avenge him before transcending so this karmic influence wasn’t that huge too.
“To you, you just have to pay close attention to these two points when transcending.” Bloodshed God Emperor chuckled. Waving his hand, he passed a triangular talisman to Xue Ying, “This is the key to the Black Fog Sea’s array. Because it is too dangerous, I’ve long set an array down to prevent others from entering.”
Xue Ying received it immediately.
“Teacher, previously you talked about the cosmos epochs a few times.” Xue Ying asked, “And also said about how the Corpse Burial Cavern had been left behind by the second cosmos epoch. Then which cosmos epoch are we currently at? And what about the Lake Heart Island master?”
