Chapter 747: Primogenitor Devil Mountain
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Just a moment later, Xue Ying and the third prince arrived at ‘Primogenitor Devil Mountain’ with the help of Great Emperor Jiao Yun.
“We are here.” Third Highness Jiao Yun Liu looked excitedly in front of him.
Xue Ying also observed the place thoroughly. In the endless starry sky before him, there stood an enormous mountain shrouded in black fog. The mountain has a majestic presence, giving off the feeling that it was the center of this region; no, the center of the entire Devil Mountain Cosmos.
Around this Primogenitor Devil Mountain was a large number of meteorites. Every single meteorite was faintly glowing as it revolved. It was apparent that arrays were connecting all the meteorites together.
“Go.” Great Emperor Jiao Yun coldly spoke before bringing the two forward at high speed. They turned into a stream of light before arcing through the sky and landing on one of the meteorites.
There were several stone houses built on the surface of the meteorite. At this moment, there was a gray-robed, black-scaled old man subserviently waiting for them on the surface of the meteorite. When Great Emperor Jiao Yun landed on the meteorite with the two others, he immediately greeted respectfully, “Monarch.”
“Mn.” Great Emperor Jiao Yun nodded. He then turned behind to face Xue Ying. “Dong Bo Xue Ying, this is Official E. The matter regarding your preparation to challenge the Paragons within the Primogenitor Devil Mountain will be arranged by him.”
“Many thanks, Monarch.” Xue Ying said. He turned towards that gray-robed, black-scaled old man and bowed slightly in greeting. “I’ll have to trouble Ruler Official E.”
The old man revealed a grin, though his appearance was ugly and savage. Even as he smiled, it felt quite a scary image. He revealed a mouthful of sharp teeth. “I’ve heard that Monarch Dong Bo is able to defeat Rulers. I truly admire you. Regarding your challenge with the Paragons currently in the Primogenitor Devil Mountain, all I can do is to guide you there, and that is merely a small matter. The outcome of the challenge lies firmly in your hands, Protector Dong Bo.”
“Father, Brother Dong Bo has only spent a short time in our Devil Mountain Cosmos. He doesn’t have enough experience fighting experts using other cultivation systems.” Third Prince Jiao Yun Liu hurriedly added. He wanted his father to help Xue Ying.
Great Emperor Jiao Yun looked at his son.
He was cold and aloof.
However, he attached great importance to his three children. Allowing them to fight amongst one another was due to his strongly held belief that the weak would always fall prey to the strong, and was not an indication that he did not care about his children.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying.” Great Emperor Jiao Yun fixed Xue Ying with a cold-eyed stare. “Tell me, what do you need my help for?”
Xue Ying was startled.
“There is only a single opportunity for you, so you better make the most of it.” Great Emperor Jiao Yun coldly said. Just a single heaven-shattering Paragon was not worth his time; he didn’t even pay much attention to most Rulers. Between a True God and a Void God… that was a huge barrier. The one line separating the two levels was extremely difficult to cross.
He did not place a heaven-shattering Paragon in his eyes. So what if he was a Ruler? Moving from True God to Void god… that was a huge barrier. It was truly difficult to break through this gap. Great Emperor Jiao Yun was clear also that the moment this cosmos epoch ended, they would be leaving for the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World to become subordinates of the primogenitor.
Those like the third prince and other True Gods wished to befriend Xue Ying.
But Great Emperor Jiao Yun and other Void Gods cast their vision further. They were too lazy to pay heed to those who did not reach the Void God level. But for his son’s sake, he would give Xue Ying a chance.
Xue Ying could feel the other party’s indifference. But he did not mind. He began stating his request, “This junior is in need of some items, though this junior could never find any traces of them.”
For the sake of his hometown.
For the purpose of the final battle–that battle would determine the fate of countless lives. So what if the other party was cold and aloof?
“Carry on.” Great Emperor Jiao Yun continued.
“This junior has always wanted to look for two materials. First is the legendary blood essence of a Thousand-eyed Fire Insect. The other is the “Myriad Catalog”. This junior does not hope for the complete catalog, just the third volume would be sufficient.” Xue Ying finished stating his request before looking at Great Emperor Jiao Yun.
Great Emperor Jiao Yun frowned as he glanced at Xue Ying. He coldly replied, “You are a Paragon, so why do you wish for the blood essence of a Thousand-eyed Fire Insect? Do you know what the Thousand-eyed Fire Insect is?”
“This junior does not know.” Xue Ying shook his head.
“You dare to ask for it despite not knowing what it is.” Great Emperor Jiao Yun sneered. The blood essence of the Thousand-eyed Fire Insect was so precious that even those at his level treated it as something extraordinary. He had merely seen it mentioned once in the books passed down by the primogenitor.
Xue Ying was not angry. He listened obediently, yet he sighed inwardly. It seemed that there was no hope of getting the blood essence of the Thousand-eyed Fire Insect. He wondered why his teacher Bloodshed God-Emperor wanted these treasures.
“It is impossible for me to help you with the Thousand-eyed Fire Insect blood essence. As for the “Myriad Catalog”, I can give you the entire book.” Great Emperor Jiao Yun said indifferently. “Someone will send the “Myriad Catalog” over to you soon. You should just wait for it here. Liu’er, let us go.”
“Yes, father.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu did not dare to disobey his father. He could only look at Xue Ying and transmit a message. “You will have to depend on yourself from now on.”
“I’m truly grateful for Your Highness” assistance.” Xue Ying transmitted his reply.
Indeed, he felt genuine gratitude towards His Highness.
From the tone which the Bloodshed God-Emperor had used when entrusting those tasks to Xue Ying, he could tell that this was a matter of the highest importance. To complete one of them was already good news! After all, when he had previously asked the third prince about the items, the third prince had never heard of them. This Void God ‘Great Emperor Jiao Yun’ actually recognized the two items, though there was no hope of getting the blood essence of the Thousand-eyed Fire Insect. Instead, he had promised to give Xue Ying the complete Myriad Catalog.
“Many thanks, Monarch.” Xue Ying respectfully thanked him.
Great Emperor Jiao Yun just brought the third prince and subsequently disappeared.
That ‘Ruler Official E’ chuckled. “Paragon Dong Bo, I’ll have to briefly inform you about the rules before you challenge the Paragons within the Primogenitor Devil Mountain.”
“Please do tell, Ruler Official E.” Xue Ying replied.
“The three Paragons would not simply accept any challenge they receive. If that were the case, the three of them would probably have no time to cultivate, having to respond to the multitude of challenges.” Ruler Official E said. “To challenge them… you must first defeat a puppet at the entrance of the Primogenitor Devil Mountain. Only then will you be qualified to challenge them.”
“To this date, only 11 Paragons have ever defeated the puppets.” Ruler Official E chuckled as he looked at Xue Ying. “It is not an easy task.”
“After defeating the puppet, Paragon Dong Bo will be qualified to battle the second and third Paragons within the Primogenitor Devil Mountain.” Ruler Official E said. “And after you defeat one of them, their position will be moved back by one… and the fourth-ranking Paragon will naturally be chased out of the Primogenitor Devil Mountain.”
“You can continue challenging the next Paragon after winning one battle. At that time, you can challenge the strongest Paragon.” Ruler Official E said. “After you win, you will be the strongest Paragon and have the opportunity to enter the inner layer of Primogenitor Devil Mountain!”
“If you are defeated, you will have to wait for a million years before you can rechallenge them!”
Ruler Official E laughed. “Do you understand the rules now?”
“I do.” Xue Ying nodded.
The moment he was defeated, he had to wait for a million years before he could rechallenge them. This prevented Paragons from repeatedly challenging the three Paragons within the Mountain. A million years was not too long, but it was also not a short period. It would not have a significant effect on cultivation.
“In a while, the “Myriad Catalog” will be sent over. How about this, you can rest here for a day before entering the Primogenitor Devil Mountain tomorrow. How about that?” Ruler Official E asked.
“Alright.” Xue Ying nodded. He had already spent 30 million years waiting for this opportunity, so waiting one day was a small matter.
Ruler Official E smiled before turning into a stream of light, flying towards the Primogenitor Devil Mountain in the distance. Clearly, he was someone qualified to enter the Mountain!
Xue Ying turned around and casually chose a stone house.
The stone house contained operating arrays. It was quite clean, though he was not sure which expert had left this place behind.
Xue Ying sat down and crossed his legs. He waited silently.
After about an hour or so, a sweet-sounding voice came from outside. “Paragon Dong Bo!”
Xue Ying hurriedly exited the house.
There was a violet-scaled girl with a tail, with relatively beautiful features. She smiled, saying, “Paragon Dong Bo, as per the orders of Monarch, I’ve brought the “Myriad Catalog”.” She passed a circular golden plate to Xue Ying.
Xue Ying received it, feeling exceptionally elated. He then replied, “Many thanks, Ruler.”
That Great Emperor Jiao Yu’s subordinates were all Rulers.
“It’s a small matter.” The girl chuckled before turning into a stream of light and leaving the meteorite. She soon teleported and disappeared from the vicinity.
Xue Ying lowered his head, looking at the”Myriad Catalog”in his hand. Sensing it lightly, he was able to feel the voluminous information within. Large amounts of information began surging into his mind. Only after the time taken to brew a cup of tea did the flow of information stop. There was apparently more information within the “Myriad Catalog”, but he could not take in any more. The catalog contained a mystical array that prevented one from continuing to read on if one could not break it.
“This isn’t about the Laws and Profound Mysteries system. Instead, it is a system for studying the ‘hex’ from the myriad existences?” Xue Ying was dumbstruck.
He currently had an understanding of many systems.
Talking about the degree of mystery, he felt that this ‘hex’ system was the only one that could compare with the system of the ‘Laws and Profound Mysteries’.
“Why exactly does teacher need this for?” Xue Ying did not continue pondering about it after a while.
A figure descended in the distance. It was a red-robed Xue Ying, and that was the avatar which he had cultivated. Relying on the avatar technique his teacher provided, Xue Ying currently had three bodies.
The black-robed Xue Ying passed the circular golden plate to the red-robed Xue Ying.
“Sou.” The red-robed Xue Ying rapidly left. He then utilized the Void Evasive Maneuver to proceed back to the cosmos passage at the highest speed. He was prepared to return to his hometown and immediately pass this treasure on to his teacher! Since it was vital to winning the war, the earlier he could get it to his teacher, the better it would be.
