His body was being corroded, but his soul remained fine. The current physical pain he was feeling was at a level Xue Ying could completely disregard. Regardless, he still took this chance to experience the energy even to the extent of using the ‘Mirage World’ to thoroughly observe it. Nevertheless, the ‘Mirage World’ was being corroded by this gray energy as well.
‘An extreme cold and other characteristics of destruction.’ Xue Ying thought, ‘This is even a greatly weakened energy that has descended into the cosmos after bypassing many obstacles.’
This energy originated from the Primal Chaos Void beyond the cosmos. That cold and desolate region seemed harmless, but in reality, it contained all sorts of destructive power. Just the extreme coldness was enough to freeze a Ruler to death! Thus, most Rulers could not survive within. The moment the cosmos epoch ended, they were forced to leave the cosmos. The Rulers would eventually die and turn into nothingness as they were forced into the Primal Chaos Void.
Even that ‘Gu Qian Luo’ relied on the Primal Chaos Flying Ship to sail through the Primal Chaos Void.
And the ‘Voidwalker lineage’ borrowed on the energy from the Primal Chaos Void to cultivate!
As his injuries worsened, Xue Ying promptly paused in his cultivation. Without the direction presented by the array diagram in his deity heart, the surrounding gray energy was forced out of the cosmos. This energy should not exist within it!
His bones were rapidly recovering; his body was healing quickly. Nonetheless, Xue Ying was thinking deeply.
“How are you feeling when cultivating it for the first time?” The red-undergarment child who sat on top of the Black Gourd shouted.
“I should have a basic understanding of the diagram. No wonder it has such high requirement on one’s physique. Those with a weaker physique would likely be corroded when the Primal Chaos Void energy descends.” Xue Ying sighed, “And it is indeed the case that comprehension ability is vital too. The “Walker’s Hidden Secret” might not require one to understand the laws and profound mysteries, but just the first level array diagram is complex enough. It seems to contain the Profound Mysteries of Space, Profound Mysteries of Substance…”
“You can use your own system to ponder over this array diagram. At the same time, you should forget about the laws and profound mysteries you have grasped to adopt a new perspective on this array diagram.” The red-undergarment child suggested, “These two systems might be similar in some ways, but they aren’t totally identical.”
Xue Ying was enlightened.
He had tunneled down a rabbit hole and wanted to analyze it thoroughly.
“Alright. I’ll attempt again.” Xue Ying was not in a rush to guide the Primal Chaos Void energy over. Instead, he concentrated with rapt attention on that array diagram in his true deity heart which was formed from many grayish silk strands.
He forced himself to forget about the laws and profound mysteries.
The Dao of Mirage, the Dao of Slaughter… everything was thrown to the back of his mind!
He took a general viewpoint on perceiving this diagram. Gradually, Xue Ying began to discover the ‘beauty’ of this diagram. Despite throwing everything related to the laws and profound mysteries to the back of his mind, the strength of his deity heart remained the same. His comprehension ability sufficed, and naturally, he could perceive the beauty in this array diagram. He then started to ponder about this sort of ‘beauty’.
Xue Ying discovered that it was similar in many ways to the law of the world, the Dao of Mirage, and the Dao of Slaughter.
When one trained deep in any of the systems, there were many points of similarities. This was also why the Ancestor Mother Religion protectors could rapidly attain the stage four World Deity realm just shortly after interacting with the laws and profound mysteries. As for Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master and Bloody Ruler Nile, they cultivated for a longer period and had attained higher attainments in the realm.
Borrowing on the many points of connections, Xue Ying began to understand the diagram. This was after all just the first level of cultivation technique, and it wasn’t hard. It was the simplest and most fundamental array diagram of the “Walker’s Hidden Secret”.
“I understood it!” Xue Ying thoroughly comprehended the diagram. He felt quite joyous over this matter, yet he could not blurt out his excitement.
“You’re quite fast to comprehend it in two years?” The red-undergarment child glanced at him from on top of the Black Gourd. He giggled.
“It has been two years already.” Xue Ying shook his head. He had no concept of time during cultivation.
He closed his eyes again, concentrating on cultivation.
Borrowing the array diagram in his deity heart, he immediately guided the energy from the ‘Primal Chaos Void’ outside the cosmos in. That desolate and cold energy once again tore through the many obstacles to reach Xue Ying. This gray energy enshrouded his body, and this time, Xue Ying was genuinely absorbing this energy for his use.
One could see Xue Ying’s entire figure turning into an array diagram. The gray energy was guided in. The cold it contained, the corrosive and the destructive characteristics remained unyielding as they ate away Xue Ying’s body.
“Chi chi chi~”
His body relied on the array diagram to absorb and transform this energy. At the same time, he was suffering from corrosion and destruction albeit the degree of damage was quite light. Thus, his body was able to rapidly recover from it. It was continuously recovering, destroying, recovering, destroying… and his body became stronger as it was tempered under the energy.
“Too chaotic.” Xue Ying felt terrified.
This gray energy that bypassed through many obstacles seemed pure, but in reality, it contained many different kinds of mixed destructive forces.
He could still absorb some energy, but those with a great destructive characteristic could not be absorbed. He could only refine them using the array diagram, or to expel them out of his body. Some had even turned into a sharp edge under the gradual refinement of the array diagram! This sharp edge which was condensed after the purification from the destructive energy was also an offensive method the ‘Voidwalker’ had. It was called ‘Termination Energy’.
The Termination Energy had been purified and condensed from the most extreme destructive energy within the Primal Chaos Void. Its offensive and destructive power was tremendous. Imbuing a normal weapon with this energy, it could greatly improve the threat of the weapon. Even if he did not use a weapon, the Termination Energy alone could form a weapon that sufficed.
Another two months passed.
Xue Ying let out a long breath. There was some rainbow light being puffed out from his mouth. This light had a frightening power since it was energy that could not be refined by the “Walker’s Hidden Secret”. They could only be expelled.
“I’ve finally succeeded.” Xue Ying revealed a grin. The “Walker’s Hidden Secret” and the system of laws and profound mysteries had a single difference. He had just comprehended the first level, yet he still had to slowly cultivate in it. There was a gradual process in which his body needed to transform. It was relatively fast with the first level–he took just two months to do so before his body was cultivated thoroughly.
In the future, as he became more powerful, the process of absorbing the energy might take a more extended period.
The Voidwalker lineage…
Had very few techniques!
What it was famous for was for its fleeing methods. This lineage relied on the Primal Chaos Void energy to cultivate. The Primal Chaos Void was akin to their homes, and thus, their fleeing ways were innately formidable!
Another plus point about this lineage was a robust body. Just by succeeding in cultivating this technique, Xue Ying’s body became much stronger than the Myriad Devil True Body! Clearly, the creator of the Voidwalker was on a higher level than Ancestor Devil.
Finally, the Voidwalker had the ‘Termination Energy’ which was purified from the extreme destructive energy inherent in the Primal Chaos Void energy.
And that was all they had! These three techniques!
The Voidwalker did not have any other methods, but every single one of the three was tyrannical. Besides, they could always cultivate in other systems as they visited many different cosmos. Naturally, they would become someone outstanding.
“Hahaha, Dong Bo Xue Ying, congratulations for your success. You can receive the full inheritance now.” The red-undergarment child suddenly shouted, “Be careful. It’s about to begin!”
“Be careful?” Xue Ying was startled.
Closely following that, he felt the entire gray land underneath his feet vibrating.
Xue Ying was frightened by that. He hurriedly grabbed hold of the Black Gourd and rapidly flew upwards to evade what was to come. The entire boundless gray land was vibrating, though as Xue Ying quickly retreated by adopting the ‘Void Evasive Maneuver’, he turned around after thinking that he had withdrawn far enough only to fall into a daze.
Right in front of him, there was an immense gray humanoid being sleeping in the void. Currently, it was gradually getting up. It had opened its eyes. This being had a gargantuan figure that far exceeded any living beings Xue Ying had seen before in his life.
“I was previously on the surface of his body?” Xue Ying could not help but ask.
“Mn.” The red-undergarment child nodded as it sat on the Black Gourd Xue Ying was grabbing on.
“Whose body is this?” Xue Ying was surprised.
“Just an incarnation.” The red-undergarment child replied.
Xue Ying was watching with slight shock.
The gray humanoid being slowly started standing up. Inspecting its figure closely, it seemed quite similar to the ‘silver-haired golden-horned man’ he had once seen before. He opened his eyes. That gray eyes of his turned to Xue Ying. He was too big–his gray eyes were bigger than the Sun Star. Such a colossal incarnation brought about an oppressive feeling that induced Xue Ying to hold his breath.
This level of power could destroy an entire cosmos with the flip of his hand.
“This is a small-scaled cosmos space that I opened in your cosmos.” The gray humanoid being said, “In a while, after you received the complete inheritance, it will naturally crumble apart.”
