Chapter 778: Killing a Void God?
Within the Starting Ground’s grass house, a violet-robed Xue Ying opened his eyes. He had constantly been cultivating here during the past billion years. Looking around him, the grass house felt incomparably familiar. Unsurprising, as he had been cultivating there for a long time. He shook his head lightly with a smile. “It’s time for me to leave.”
He stood up, walked to the entrance, and pushed open the wooden door. He saw the white-haired old man sitting there, cross-legged. This made Xue Ying sigh inwardly. The old man had been protecting him, from the outside, for as long as he had been cultivating inside.
“Senior.” Xue Ying stated.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying, why did you come out?” The white-haired old man was slightly startled.
“I am prepared to undergo the Ruler realm trial.” Xue Ying mentioned. He wanted to take the final trial before leaving the cosmos. If he passed through the trial, Forefather Tian Yu might give him some surprises in the gifts provided to the descendants. Maybe one of those could help his wife and children.
With shock, the white-haired old man said, “You want to take the Ruler realm trial now? Dong Bo Xue Ying, I have to remind you, the Ruler realm trial is the final one in the Starting Ground and also the most difficult. The moment you pass through it, you will become one of the core golden-robed disciples of the Great Void Heaven Temple. The Great Void Heaven Temple will also do its best to groom you. But comparatively speaking, the trial is extremely difficult. In the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World, there are only a fixed number of ten golden-robed disciples in the Great Void Heaven Temple! Every time there is a huge war, large numbers of violet-robed disciples will take the initiative to launch a challenge, and only the strongest ten will become the core golden-robed disciple. Every single golden-robed disciple could kill a Void God by surpassing their current realm as a Ruler.”
“Oh?” Xue Ying was stunned.
Rulers surpassing their current realm to kill a Void God?
One had to know that it was a huge major realm jump from True God to Void God. Xue Ying might think highly of himself, having cultivated the Voidwalker system. But even though the Voidwalkers had an early advantage, being a powerful system, he only felt that he could fight against the new Void Gods! He did not think of killing Void Gods as a Ruler!
“There are too many ordinary Rulers in the Great Void Heaven Temple. There are more than a hundred violet-robed disciples, but only ten golden-robed disciples at any one time! Even if there were a Ruler who was more talented, only the strongest ten would become golden-robed disciples.” The white-haired old man said, “Because you have been born within the cosmos, after getting through the Starting Ground trial, you will become a golden-robed disciple that allows you to attain all sorts of benefits a golden-robed disciple have temporarily. But after reaching the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World, there will be an internal challenge once every billion years which you have to attend. If you could not get into the top 10, you will demote back to becoming a violet-robed disciple.”
Xue Ying lightly nodded.
“Also, because this isn’t the Great Void Heaven Temple, even if you became a golden-robed disciple, the benefits you enjoy are only part of what the normal golden-robed disciple will enjoy in the Great Void Heaven Temple.” The white-haired old man said, “Naturally, you can enjoy everything if you visited the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World.”
“Firstly, within the cosmos, the cultivation resources you get will not be as much as what you get in the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World. Secondly, the benefits you get are relatively less. Thus, the difficulty of the trial is also lower than that in the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World. The disciples there will compete with one another, but there is a fixed opponent for you to defeat in the Starting Ground. As long as you kill it, you will become a golden-robed disciple.”
“Kill it? Who is it?” Xue Ying asked.
“A Void God that is slightly weaker.” The white-haired old man said, “The golden-robed disciples of Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World are all able to kill ordinary Void Gods. This type of extremely weak Void God… is much easier to kill.”
“But no matter what, it is still a Void God. I urge you to cultivate for a longer period since ultimately, you have cultivated for only a short period.” The white-haired old man urged Xue Ying.
Xue Ying felt uncertain.
Killing a slightly weaker Void God? And the difficulty was also lowered?
He felt that a golden-robed disciple from the Great Void Heaven Temple was much stronger than that ‘Gu Qian Luo’. Gu Qian Luo was one of the sacred sons under the Ancestor Bone Throne. But clearly, he was much weaker. The most dazzling expert cultivating the laws and profound mysteries system… was indeed terrifying.
“I still want to attempt it.” Xue Ying said.
“Attempt it? You only have one single opportunity. If you were defeated, you would be forced out.” The white-haired old man told him once again.
“No need to say anymore.” Xue Ying shook his head.
No matter if he succeeded or not, he would leave this cosmos after the battle.
The white-haired old man felt helpless after seeing that he could not change the mind of Xue Ying: “Alright, I’ll bring you over. You are truly overconfident.”
Under the guidance of the white-haired old man, Xue Ying entered a vast space, empty except for the black ground.
“Forefather refined a slightly weaker Void God puppet.” The white-haired old man said, “It is a refinement that completely reflects a genuine Void, God. After killing it, it will go back into incubation mode before reviving once again after three days. Naturally, it is fine after killing it once. It is an organism found in the Primal Chaos Void known as the ‘Hundred Leading Howls’. You should not have heard of it before, but you have to be a little careful. Don’t be defeated the moment you begin the battle. I still look forward to the emergence of a golden-robed disciple.”
Xue Ying’s heart leaped. Hundred Leading Howls? He had seen its records within the vast information provided by the Voidwalker inheritance.
“Then I’ll be releasing it now.” The white-haired old man said. His attitude towards Xue Ying was apparently much closer.
The black land began trembling. An enormous creature emerged suddenly from it. It was colossal, as expected from an organic being that lived in the Primal Chaos Void. It had many multi-colored tentacles, each very long. At the center of its body, there were over a hundred huge brains, each with a single horn protruding from it, with a single eye, and a huge bloody mouth.
The hundred brains roared simultaneously. The surrounding void trembled violently, and parts of it disintegrated. Many ripples began fluctuating in the distance and swept across Xue Ying too.
It had a preference for howling. But the threat from its howl was insignificant. Even Rulers with a slightly weaker fleshy body could survive it. To Xue Ying, who had cultivated the Hidden Walker’s Secret to the 20th level, it could be completely disregarded. It was clear that the real strength of the ‘Hundred Leading Howls’ had yet to be displayed.
Concluding its howl, the Hundred Leading Howls became more relaxed. Only then did its heads turn towards Xue Ying’s direction. Every single unpaired eye was fixated on Xue Ying, forming an incorporeal spirit suppression on him. However, either due to the complete “Walker’s Hidden Secret” inheritance he had in his soul or the fact that he cultivated the “God Light Scripture”, Xue Ying was able to ignore this type of soul attack.
Forming a soul assault with just its gaze was actually a technique developed naturally by reaching the higher realm of ‘Void God’. This was not the creature’s true inborn technique.
In an instant, darkness fell across the entire space. The hundred brains of the Hundred Leading Howls opened their mouths at the same time. Every single mouth released a black fog.
In the black space, the black fog began mixing.
“According to the information provided from the Voidwalker inheritance, I should entice it to spill more poisonous gas to weaken it further. Only then will my chance of victory be higher. But I should try to fight and see if I could kill it directly.” Xue Ying knew that the golden-robed disciples of the Great Void Heaven Temple could all kill Void Gods as Rulers. That caused the fighting spirit in him to rise. Since others could do so, he should be able to achieve it too!
The violet-robed Xue Ying remained standing here. He only had a single incarnation at this moment – his real body stealthily entered the Mirage World using the Void Evasive Maneuver, and traveled directly to where the head of the Void God, ‘Hundred Leading Howls’, was.
