Chapter 780: The Final Stage of Cultivation
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Xue Ying flew into the primal chaos void. He was able to sense an unseen operating law sweeping across him. Xue Ying understood that this was the operating laws of the primal chaos void! After entering this location, he would no longer be under the protection of the cosmos. His soul had to be one-whole before he could even survive in the primal chaos void. Naturally, it was on the premise that he could survive in the hostile environment within the primal chaos void.
“Chi chi chi~” The primal chaos void seemed empty, but in reality, it contained a few types of energy fused together. Some were horrifying, destructive and extremely cold. Just this frigidness could freeze several Rulers to death quickly.
But Xue Ying was like a fish in water within this environment. He was after all a Voidwalker. After cultivating Walker’s Hidden Secret to the 11th level, Xue Ying was able to survive in the primal chaos void. Now that he was at the 20th level, this environment naturally became more comfortable.
Xue Ying turned behind him.
There was a boundless and enormous existence–the cosmos! This was his hometown cosmos. It was big, yet it housed and protected countless beings within. Compared to the primal chaos void, it was much safer to stay within a cosmos.
“It is still difficult to determine my direction in the vast primal chaos void.” Xue Ying looked at this cold and desolate primal chaos void. He released his senses towards the void and spread it further. This distance which he could sense would likely be a hundred times the size of a cosmos.
With such colossal perception region, he could easily detect that unseen energy within the primal chaos void that was moving extremely slowly.
It felt as if there was a core in the primal chaos void.
With that core as the point of origin, the primal chaos void was expanding in all directions! It was continuously growing and expanding.
“The Ancient Sacred World is right there!” Xue Ying softly nodded. According to the direction of expansion of the primal chaos void, he could deduce the direction where the Ancient Sacred World was!
The Ancient Sacred World…
That was one of the five great sacred worlds.
According to the legends, the Ancient Sacred World was where everything began.
After that, a group of strongest existences who reached the final point of cultivation underwent a horrifying great war that caused the entire Ancient Sacred World of the past to explode. The remaining ‘Ancient Sacred World’ was likely only one-hundredth its original size.
Because of that great war, the primal chaos void began expanding in all directions. Of the remnant pieces that exploded from the original Ancient Sacred World, some transformed into cosmos, and some formed primal chaos lands that were smaller than cosmos. There were even smaller pieces which were not suitable for life.
And that group of existence who reached the final stages of cultivation also separated. They began creating their own sacred worlds. But over the extended period, there were more great wars involving existences who reached the final stages of cultivation, causing the destruction of more sacred worlds.
And thus, there were only five sacred worlds left remaining.
The Ancient Sacred World and Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World were two of them.
“The existences who cultivated to the final stage are truly terrifying.” Xue Ying sighed inwardly, “They are people who can destroy an entire sacred world.”
“But I have also gotten an absolute art which can destroy a sacred world.” Currently, there was an absolute art which existed in Xue Ying’s mind. This was the Temple Protection absolute art, one of the three Temple Protection absolute arts which the Great Void Heaven Temple had.
The one Xue Ying chose was called “13 Apocalyptic Swords”.
This was the only one among the three Temple Protection absolute arts which were more suitable to the laws and profound mysteries Xue Ying cultivated because this Temple Protection absolute art belonged to the ‘Dao of Slaughter’.
The “13 Apocalyptic Swords” was created by ‘Forefather Tian Yu’, the temple head of the Great Void Heaven Temple.
It was extremely terrifying and powerful!
The first sword was already extremely mystical and complex. Rulers would become unparalleled after learning it! Only those with outstanding comprehension abilities could learn the first sword. The moment one grasped it… when comparing sword techniques, the user could surpass realms as a Ruler and defeat ordinary Void Gods! In other words, just by relying on sword techniques, one sufficed to match against the current Xue Ying. The reason why Xue Ying was so strong had been because of the Voidwalker system. His self-created “Wind Ripple Path” still lacked compared to this first sword.
The second sword was even more frightening. Most Rulers had no hope of succeeding in cultivating that. There had only been a genius in the Dao of Sword within the history of Great Void Heaven Temple who did so as a Ruler! The others who comprehended this Temple Protection absolute art could not even comprehend it at the ‘Void God Origin Birth realm’. One could see how difficult it was! That genius in Dao of Sword had relied on the second sword… to sweep across all experts at the Void God Origin Birth realm. He could easily kill off ordinary Void Gods, and even fight against those who reached the ‘Void Unity realm’.
Naturally, other than that existence, there had never been a second Ruler who could grasp the second sword.
Every subsequent sword of this sword technique was much stronger than the previous one.
The final 13th sword was also why this absolute art was named like this–it could shatter a sacred world into pieces!
Being an existence who reached the final stages of cultivation in the laws and profound mysteries system, Forefather Tian Yu created three great Temple Protection absolute arts. They were all tyrannical in power and were famous across all five great sacred worlds. Those like ‘Ancestor Bone’ who were similarly at the final stages of cultivation, were much weaker by an entire level as compared to him.
Differentiating according to the cultivation realm, there were three minor levels within the Void God realm–the Origin Birth realm, the Unity realm, and the Primal Chaos realm!
When one mentioned Void Gods in the vast primal chaos void and the sacred worlds, they usually refer to those at the ‘Void Origin Birth realm’. The majority of the Void Gods were at this level.
The Unity realm existences were rarer.
As for the Primal Chaos realm?
When existences at the final cultivation stages were not around, they were the most terrifying ones.
The ‘Primal Chaos realm’ was also the realm which Lake Heart Island master had once reached within the cosmos. It was truly unfathomable. Without having formidable enemies around to temper himself or any good guidance, the Lake Heart Island master was able to attain the Primal Chaos realm within the cosmos. Even Voidwalker Gu Qi was dumbstruck by this fact. And even Forefather Tian Yu the creator of this cosmos had never thought that such a thing could happen.
And above that…
It was the final realm of cultivation–the Cosmos God!
The Cosmos God no longer had any differentiation in levels. Those who reached the Cosmos God realm had reached the end of their respective systems. They were akin to a cosmos themselves. Like the laws and profound mysteries system, their inner world could turn into a cosmos! Thus, a single move of theirs could converge the entire cosmic strength and destroying a cosmos was as simple as lifting their hands.
Existences at this level were also known as existences who reached the final stage of cultivation! There were very few of them.
The number of Cosmos God in all five sacred worlds could be counted with one’s fingers. Like the Ancient Sacred World, there were only two Cosmos Gods within! Those who reached this level would rarely act. Because the moment they did so, it would be something phenomenal! And the destruction of a sacred world was something common at their levels.
“Hu–” Xue Ying slightly separated a strand of his concentration to control the void and proceed with traveling using the Void Evasive Maneuver.
His entire figure remained in the maneuvering state.
Regardless of the Starting Ground or the inheritance from the Voidwalker, they had all provided him with the complete primal chaos void map! Of which, his hometown cosmos was naturally marked within. Knowing the location of his hometown cosmos and using the ‘Ancient Sacred World’ to determine his bearings, Xue Ying naturally knew where to head!
Moving at ultra-high speed using the maneuver, the rest 99% of Xue Ying’s current concentration was spent on comprehending the “13 Apocalyptic Swords”. After all, this was one of the peak absolute arts within the laws and profound mysteries. He had obtained this absolute art barely, so naturally, he had to do his best in comprehending it. According to estimations, it would still take as long as two billion years if the path to the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred world was very smooth.
This was considered close already!
The Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World was the sacred world which was situated closest to his hometown cosmos. Naturally, the premise was that ‘it was a smooth journey’. This primal chaos void was filled with all sorts of dangers, and even if he could survive, there might be events that would delay him.
