Chapter 745: The Ultimate Aim
“Brother Dong Bo, my Devil Mountain Cosmos treats experts from other races equally. There is no discrimination at all.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu chuckled. “Why do you think we do this?”
“Oh?” Xue Ying was listening carefully.
“It is an order given by the primogenitor. All the descendants of his bloodline, including me, do not dare disobey him.” Jiao Yun Liu lowered his voice. “You should have heard this before, that in our bloodline cultivation system, because the many lifeforms of our entire cosmos all originate from the primogenitor, hence the primogenitor himself has an unfathomable strength. In the future, when this cosmos epoch ends, we will leave this cosmos and become the primogenitor’s subordinates.”
Xue Ying was drinking his wine slowly, but after hearing what the other party said, he could not help but pause.
“I’ve told you a secret.’
Jiao Yun Liu’s voice became even softer. “My clan’s primogenitor is in the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World. The Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World was created by both my clan’s primogenitor and another existence on the same level!”
Xue Ying’s pupils dilated. He felt a great shock in his heart.
Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World?
Wasn’t that the place where Forefather Tian Yu and Lake Heart Island master were at? The cultivators of his own cosmos would also eventually leave for the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World and become subordinates under their forefather.
So the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World was actually created by the primogenitor of the Devil Mountain Cosmos and another existence?
“In the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World, my clan’s ancestor has a great status.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu said. “There are an innumerable number of living beings who wish to become subordinates of the primogenitor. Furthermore, the primogenitor treats lifeforms from other cosmoses equally. Thus, Brother Dong Bo, with your power, even if your hometown has no Void Gods, our Devil Mountain Cosmos has several! You can definitely bring your people over with us as we set off for the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World. However, the time flow in our cosmos is much faster. Thus, the moment a cosmos epoch ends in our cosmos, only a short period would have passed in other cosmoses.”
“Mn.” Xue Ying nodded. “The time flow difference is truly ridiculous.”
“Hahaha… this is also because the primogenitor wanted to have more powerful descendants.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu added.
Xue Ying sighed inwardly.
This Devil Mountain Cosmos honestly had a huge backing! One day, he would seek out Forefather Tian Yu and the Lake Heart Island master. That sacred world was also where the experts of the Devil Mountain Cosmos were located. Thus, it would definitely be advantageous for him to maintain good relationships with them. Who knows if the other party had a more significant influence and power than Forefather Tian Yu?
“Our Devil Mountain Cosmos is easily connected to other cosmoses, forming all sorts of cosmos passages.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu said. “Allowing many different types of cultivation systems to clash with one another is a great boon to our cultivation.”
“Other than the collision of different systems and a time flow that far surpasses other cosmoses, the primogenitor himself had even left behind a “Primogenitor Devil Mountain”.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu mentioned.
Xue Ying felt a jolt in his heart.
Even if Red Devil God-Emperor had not charged over, the original plan was for Xue Ying to cultivate the “Walker’s Hidden Secret” to the ninth or tenth level and increase his strength, before finding an opportunity to reveal his strength. Now that he had revealed his strength before he intended to… it was not actually a big deal to him! He was confident of his strength, in addition to his advantage in using the laws and profound mysteries.
Arriving at this Devil Mountain Cosmos, other than having a time flow of more than 3,000 times faster than other cosmoses which enabled him to improve his cultivation, the other more important reason was for the so-called legendary ‘Primogenitor Devil Mountain’.
As he was chatting with the other protectors, he had naturally heard of how mysterious the Primogenitor Devil Mountain was.
Xue Ying had long mentioned this place to Bloodshed God-Emperor. Naturally, he had some ideas about how he should deal with this matter.
“The Primogenitor Devil Mountain was left behind by the primogenitor. It is a truly mystical cultivation ground.” Jiao Yun Liu explained. “Cultivating there will allow your strength to grow even faster. You will understand after visiting it. After all, I have yet to personally experience it.”
Having said that, the Jiao Yun Liu’s eyes were filled with desire.
He was the son of a Void God and had a similar desire to visit the Primogenitor Devil Mountain. However, no one dared to break a commandment set by the primogenitor.
“The Primogenitor Devil Mountain is extremely mysterious. But how exactly is it mysterious? You will have to enter before you can find out why.”
“It is separated into different layers–the core layer, the inner layer, and the outer layer.”
“The rules set by the primogenitor… ensured that only the strongest Rulers, and those who reached the Void God realm, could enter the core layer.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu said. “There is only a single Ruler who could enter the core layer, and he is also the strongest amongst the Rulers. It seems that there is very little hope for me to ever enter that place in this life.”
“Allegedly, the inner layer is made up by nine array hubs. Every single array hub contains a cavern dwelling where only one can enter. The rule set by the primogenitor is that only the strongest Paragon and eight other Rulers can enter the inner layer.”
“As for the outer layer, there are 32 array bases and 32 cavern dwellings! The primogenitor ordered that only 30 Rulers and two strongest Paragons could enter.”
Jiao Yun Liu helplessly stated. “Thus, there could be at most 39 Rulers, three Paragons and the Void Gods entering the Primogenitor Devil Mountain.”
“And there are more than 200 Rulers in our Devil Mountain Cosmos. Furthermore, adding another 100 Rulers coming from other cosmoses, think how difficult it is to rank in the top 39?” Jiao Yun Liu shook his head.
Xue Ying sighed.
It was indeed challenging.
There were too many Rulers in the Devil Mountain Cosmos. Accounting for Rulers from other cosmoses, there were more than 300 of them! Thus, only one-tenth of the Rulers had the opportunity to enter the place.
“And how many Paragons are there?” Xue Ying asked.
“Our Devil Mountain Cosmos should have more than a thousand Paragons, with a few hundred Paragons originating from other cosmoses. In the end, only three can enter.” Jiao Yun Liu sighed. “Out of the three Paragons, two are from other races, and one is from our Devil Mountain Cosmos.”
Jiao Yun Liu’s eyes brightened as he looked at Xue Ying. “Brother Dong Bo, the reason why I mentioned these to you is that even if there are only three Paragons who could enter the Primogenitor Devil Mountain and that they are all terrifying… only the top two have defeated Rulers before. The third could barely fight to a draw against a Ruler.”
“You could defeat Red Devil God-Emperor.” Jiao Yun Liu continued. “Red Devil God-Emperor might not be a God-Emperor that is too formidable–he did not have the qualifications to enter the Primogenitor Devil Mountain, but he isn’t too weak. Since you could defeat him, you should have the chance of becoming a paragon who could challenge for entry into the Primogenitor Devil Mountain.”
“By then, after you enter the Primogenitor Devil Mountain… ze ze, I’ve dreamt of entering that place. The greatest honor of every single cultivator from our entire Devil Mountain Cosmos would be to enter the Primogenitor Devil Mountain!”
Xue Ying nodded.
It was not too easy to get an opportunity to enter the Primogenitor Devil Mountain. There were already three Paragons inside, so if he wanted to enter, he had to force one out.
One had to know…
Two out of the three current Paragons could defeat a Ruler.
Those from the Cultivator Cosmos like Monarch Green and Pang Yi–Monarch Green had never defeated a Ruler when he was a Paragon. At the very most, he could fight to a standstill with a Ruler. And ‘Pang Yi’ may have defeated a Ruler when he was a Paragon, but that was against Bloody Ruler who hid his strength.
Thus, based on past incidents, it was challenging for a Paragon to defeat a Ruler.
Amongst all the Paragons from the “Devil Mountain Cosmos” and the many other cosmoses, those were the three most outstanding ones. These were Paragons who had comprehended multiple different kinds of cultivation system, and have emerged as the top three! Furthermore, they had cultivated for a long period in the Primogenitor Devil Mountain, and their combat power was unfathomable! Even Xue Ying did not have confidence in defeating them in a fight. His original plan was to cultivate Walker’s Hidden Secret to a more profound stage before entering, but who would have thought that the battle with Red Devil God-Emperor would have occurred!
‘Let’s just try it out.’
‘Even if I fail, I can always attempt it a second time.’ Xue Ying did not have any thoughts of backing off. After all, the war in his hometown could erupt at any time. Thus, the earlier he entered the Primogenitor Devil Mountain, the better.
His Highness Jiao Yun Liu spoke to him about some other relevant matters, though he too was not privy to much more information. After all, his strength was too lacking with regards to the entry criteria for the Primogenitor Devil Mountain.
“Alright. I’ve told you everything I know. Brother Dong Bo, I’ll not accompany you any further, and go on to cultivate.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu stood up. He was deeply moved after the earlier incident. “This time, it is all because of Brother Dong Bo that I was able to keep the Black Devil Sacred Fruits. I owe you a great favor.”
“Protecting Your Highness is something which I ought to do.” Xue Ying stood up too.
“No no no, if you had betrayed me, or snatched the Black Devil Sacred Fruits away from me, I would have no way of resisting.” Jiao Yun Liu said. “This favor is something I’ll engrave forever in my mind. But for now, I’ll enter closed-door cultivation.”
“Go on, go on. You don’t have to care about me.” Xue Ying laughed. He knew that Jiao Yun Liu had waited far too long about going to cultivate.
Jiao Yun Liu laughed back before leaving.
Xue Ying’s gaze turned cold. He murmured. “Primogenitor Devil Mountain…”
In the Cultivator Cosmos, within the small courtyard located inside the Bloodshed God Palace.
A white-robed teenager appeared. He was an incarnation of Xue Ying.
“Teacher.” Xue Ying looked towards Bloodshed God-Emperor, who had just walked out.
“Xue Ying?” Bloodshed God-Emperor asked, “Is there any news?”
“It seems like I’ll be entering the Primogenitor Devil Mountain very soon.” Xue Ying said, “The matter which Teacher has tasked me with, I’ll definitely accomplish it. Are there any other things which Teacher wants me to do?”
