Chapter 637: Returning Home

Xue Ying chuckled, “Senior, may I ask if there is anything that can greatly increase my offensive power?”
“Offensive power?” The white-haired old man frowned, “There are indeed three types of unique cultivation methods from other cosmos that can greatly increase your combat power, but it’s a pity that you don’t have the qualifications to get them. That’s because you have only succeeded in surviving the World Deity trial, and the treasures you can select are the lowest leveled ones.”
Xue Ying laughed involuntarily.
Alright, the lowest leveled ones.
“Are you certain that you need one of the offensive types? The absolute arts I have include those for escaping, domain-related ones…” The white-haired old man said.
“Offensive types.” Xue Ying nodded.
He had opened the ‘Dao of Mirage’, and had two absolute arts, “Luminous Sun”, and “Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body” with him. He only had to improve his offense now.
“You should have some absolute arts with you. Otherwise, you will not be so strong in the World Deity realm. However, there is no way I could get an offensive absolute art that far eclipsed those you have previously learned for you.” The white-haired old man shook his head, “Not just cultivation methods or absolute arts, anything that can greatly improve your strength is precious. Only if you passed the World trial would you have a few options to select from.”
Xue Ying was dumbstruck.
Completely eclipsing those absolute arts which he had learned? He had acquired an absolute art from the Destruction Legion and the other from his teacher. The degree of preciousness was unimaginable! Who would have thought that getting through the ‘World realm’ trial would grant him a chance to obtain an even more profound absolute art. It’s a pity that he had just gotten through the World Deity realm trial.
“Only weapons can satisfy you.” The white-haired old man said, “Weapons are external, and could improve your combat power directly. But comparably, it is valued at a lower rate as compared to the highest-leveled cultivation methods and absolute arts.”
“Then weapon it’ll be.” Xue Ying nodded, “My future opponents are the Paragons and the Rulers, so I will need a weapon that can threaten them.”
“Rest assured. I’ll select the most appropriate weapon for you within the boundary demarcated by forefather.” The white-haired old man laughed before pushing open the wooden door to the grass house.
The moment the door was opened, it was a piece of darkness within the grass house. It seemed like a storm within, and Xue Ying could hardly perceive what was inside; he only got a sense of danger from it.
‘I wonder what he’ll get for me.’ Xue Ying thought to himself.
A moment after the white-haired old man entered.
He walked out of the house again. Casually closing the door, he was currently holding on to a black spear, though the head of this spear was entirely crimson. There was an exceptionally unremarkable crimson pattern intertwining each other on its body.
“If we are talking about weapons, there are too many of them to choose from. We have a large collection of weapons casually refined by the forefather and occasionally acquired by him.” The white-haired old man laughed, “Seeing that you are using a spear, I’ve chosen one for you. This spear is called the Blood Serpent Spear. It has the ‘Dao of slaughter’ within. It should be a Ruler who refined this spear. After it came to the hands of the forefather, he had improved the Dao of Slaughter within to the Ruler realm. Other than that, the extremely sinister ‘Blood Serpent Venom’ is applied to this killing weapon. The Blood Serpent Venom is fatal to anyone with a weaker physique. The moment you pierce through them, it could cause their deaths. Those who have a stronger body might survive from this venom, yet the venom will wreck your opponents’ body, making it tough for them to recover during battle.”
Xue Ying looked at this black-colored spear and instantly fell in love with it. Hearing the introduction from the old man, he became even more wild with joy.
A huge sum.
His flying knife might have two types of Daos within it, but they were both at the Opening realm.
There was only a single Dao within that spear, yet it was at the Ruler realm! Furthermore, it was applied with the supremely terrifying ‘Blood Serpent Venom’. Paragons would not care about average True God weapons, but a True God weapon with a Ruler realm ‘Dao’ was enough for them to covet over it.
“Take it.” The white-haired old man passed it over, “The battle you had previously was at the World Deity realm. Now that you are at the Opening realm, the next trial you can participate will naturally be at the level of the Opening realm. That will be utterly different. The rewards you get will also be a hundred or a thousand times better! Those are treasures which will make even Rulers envy.”
“Opening realm trial?” Xue Ying chuckled, “By then when I am at the Paragon realm, it will be nine deaths and one life right?”
“Right, the condition is for you to survive.” The white-haired old man did not hide the fact.
Xue Ying laughed.
Experiencing this, he already knew of the temper of that white-haired old man.
The trials set would require one to be at the peak level. How strong was he as a World Deity? But it was extremely dangerous nonetheless.
The trial at the Opening realm level would be much more difficult, and there would be an opponent stronger than that strongest World Deity.
“I’ll go and have a look at that illusory world before leaving.” Xue Ying said, “You won’t chase me out right?”
“You can stay however long you want.” The white-haired old man nodded before slowly walking away. The surrounding illusory world began distorting layer by layer, and he soon disappeared after.
Xue Ying though lowered his head as he looked at the spear in his hand.
“Blood Serpent Spear?” Xue Ying tried refining it, “The True God weapon flying knife might have a slaughter Dao too, but firstly, it seems that the two aren’t the same and secondly, the Dao inherent within this Blood Serpent Spea has reached the Ruler realm. Even refining it will most likely take me a long time.”
Even though the weapon was formidable, his current realm had reached a more profound level. He was at the Opening realm now, and was at the Paragon level! Thus, refining it was still achievable.
“Hua.” Keeping the weapons, Xue Ying entered this illusory world. The layers of distorted world began appearing, and he started studying them earnestly.
Time flowed. In the blink of an eye, five years passed.
Xue Ying walked on this little land at the Starting Ground within the chaotic void. He soon found the white-haired old man who was lying in the grass.
“Senior.” Xue Ying shouted out.
The white-haired old man stretched as he woke up. Only after that did he stand up and glanced at Xue Ying, “Planning to leave?”
“Mn.” Xue Ying nodded.
“Where to?” The white-haired old man asked.
“My hometown Xia Clan world. Does senior know of it?” Xue Ying asked.
“I know. In this cosmos epoch of yours, nothing can escape from me.” The white-haired old man said, “Alright, I’ll send you over at this moment.”
Xue Ying did not have the time to say anything. He only felt warm energy enveloping him.
Just like coming here, it felt truly comfortable. After the time taken to blink, the scene in front transformed. Being a World Deity realm territory lord, Xue Ying promptly understood that he had arrived at his hometown–Xia Clan world.
‘Teleporting me even into the material realm.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly. At the same time, he was overlooking the castle situated on top of the peak of a chain of mountains. That was where he grew up when he was young–Snowrock Castle.
‘He has even directly sent me to the Snowrock Castle.’
Xue Ying looked up at the void. His vision had long penetrated through the mortal realm, seeing the countless mortal worlds revolving about outside. He had also observed that bigger Deity world situated beyond the many mortal worlds!
Xue Ying could see directly through to the Deity world, “I am back. The other party will most likely know that I am back soon enough.”
The Ancestor Mother Religion could assassinate him the previous time even though they do not have karma meant that they must have borrowed a method of karma to pursue after him. For instance, those who relied on them could very well be used to locate him using karma.
His teacher Bloodshed God Emperor should know that he is back.
Xue Ying touched his lower chin, “I wonder what Teacher will think after finding out that I have entered the Opening realm.”
He was too lazy to think anymore. Soon, he turned into a stream of light before flying happily above the Xia Clan world.
His realm had substantially increased; Xue Ying felt relatively pleased.
