Chapter 805: First Time Meeting the Swordmaster
The holy ground ‘Great Void Heaven Temple’ was exceptionally crowded today. The ‘inner hall elders’ who were usually rarely seen–they were either conducting missions outside or in closed-door cultivation–had actually appeared today. Even the highest two palace masters, ‘Forefather Tian Yu’ and ‘Swordmaster’ had exited from closed-door cultivation.
The True God disciple ranking battle was a large-scale internal battle across the entire Great Void Heaven Temple. It was basically a large-scale gathering!
“Golden-robed disciple Dong Bo Xue Ying, please come to the ‘Hidden World Field’.” A communication order was sent out.
Within the Myriad Elephant Palace Hall Xue YIng was slightly startled by the announcement. He casually placed the book in his hand back on the bookshelf as he thought, “This day has finally arrived.”
All of the more important books have already been browsed through by him already. During this period, he had been reading other books related to other systems like the ‘hex’ or the ‘ancient cultivation’. This broadened his horizons, allowing him to be more prepared when facing any future enemies.
“The “Apocalyptic 13 Swords” is truly difficult.” Xue Ying muttered to himself, “I had assumed that I can succeed in cultivating the second sword at the Ruler realm. However, it seems that I am still lacking.”
During the first time he when he had obtained the “Apocalyptic 13 Swords”, the first sword had caused a change in his expression. Therefore, he did not have much hopes in him being able to cultivate the second sword at the Ruler realm.
However, after flipping through the many books, which had improved his horizons and foundation,couple with the 300 million or so years he spent in the ‘Palace Hall of Time’, he had succeeded in fusing the ‘Apocalyptic First Sword’ with the profound mysteries from the Dao of Ripple. Furthermore, he understood how the Apocalyptic First Sword was constructed better as well.
As his realm deepened, the Apocalyptic Second Sword was no longer something unreachable. Causing hope and expectations to arise in him! During this 2.8 million years, as he browsed through the books in the Myriad Elephant Palace Hall, he had always been pondering over the Apocalyptic Second Sword, and would occasionally visit the ‘Palace Hall of Time’ to further his comprehensions.
As of now, he barely had 500 contribution points left.What’s more, It’s a pity that he had yet to grasp the Apocalyptic Second Sword..
“Sou.” Xue Ying left the Myriad Elephant Palace Hall, turning into a stream of light as he flew towards the Hidden World Field.
“Xiu xiu xiu…”
In the space where the Great Void Heaven Temple was, there were many streams of light arcing through the skies.True God disciples had popped out from everywhere, all of them rushing straight towards the Hidden World Field.
“I’ve arrived.” Xue Ying looked afar.
The Hidden World Field was constructed for the sake of the ranking battle.
One could see the vast Hidden World Field being covered by an aura of slaughter. The Hidden World Field had more than a thousand stone pillars situated on top! They were arranged in a row, with the front few stone pillars being occupied by several golden-robed disciples and violet-robed disciples.
“Sou.” Xue Ying also went down, descending on the 11th stone pillar.
Every disciple was arranged to a stone pillar that was corresponded to the rankings they had achieved in the previous True God disciple battle! Naturally, after becoming a Void God, the rankings of the disciple behind would progress gradually. Howevering,since Xue Ying popped out as a golden-robed disciple, he was given the 11th rank, with every disciple behind him being moved back by a position.
At this moment, there were still disciples coming.
Ten towering stone pillars were present to the left of Xue Ying. They were those ranked in the top 10. Currently, six golden-robed disciples had already arrived. As for the disciples to his right… they were naturally all violet-robed disciples. However, Xue Ying understood too that some of those ranked in the top 20 had once been golden-robed disciples, a clear indication of the strength they possess!
“Junior Disciple Brother Dong Bo Xue Ying?”
“I’ve long heard of Junior Disciple Brother Dong Bo Xue Ying, but this is still our first time meeting.”
Some of the golden-robed disciples started speaking. They usually were either friendly or proud as they seated cross-legged on the stone pillar with their eyes closed, giving no care about any other people.
Xue Ying also chuckled as he acknowledged back, “This is my first time coming to the Great Void Heaven Temple, so I’ve practically spent all my time in the Myriad Elephant Palace Hall. Greetings, senior disciple brothers.”
“He’s Dong Bo Xue Ying?”
“Hmph, he is actually ranked in front of me.”
“You don’t have to care that much. He has become a golden-robed disciple via the trials within the cosmos. Naturally, he is ranked 11th. However, he should be much weaker than the golden-robed disciples who got their positions through the internal competition of Great Void Heaven Temple.”
“I’ve heard that many disciple brothers and sisters had challenged him before, but he did not accept any of them. He had even mentioned that he would accept them during the ranking battle.”
“Soon, he will have to reveal his combat power.”
The violet-robed disciples by the side were chatting with each other through voice transmissions. Even though they were ranked close to the front, and some of them had even been golden-robed disciples before. Therefore, they did not place Xue Ying in their eyes. Nonetheless, these words were only spoken through voice transmissions.
Very soon, the top 100 disciples had all arrived on the stone pillars. As for the disciples ranked further behind? They were not qualified to come directly to the Hidden World Field. They had to pass through the qualification trials in order to do so. There were many violet-robed disciples did not even have the qualification to attend the True God disciple battle.
Since they were not qualified, there was no need for them to participate in the ranking battles.
“The two strongest golden-robed disciples.” Xue Ying looked towards the first and second golden-robed disciples, “According to the information, there is an extremely obvious gap between the two of them and golden-robed disciples ranked further behind.”
The golden-robed disciples ranking.
First, Rain Sword Guest.
Second, Old Devil Needle.
Most of the golden-robed disciples were closer in terms of the degree of their talent. However, two ranked in the front had an absolute superiority when facing those ranked beyond third.
“Old Devil Needle?” Xue Ying glanced at the former, a green-browed thin and weakly-looking male with a lone black horn. His eyes were also green, while he was emitting a wicked aura that made others jittery. According to the intelligence report, this Old Devil Needle had originally called himself ‘Forefather Old Needle’. However, after entering the Great Void Heaven Temple, regardless of his ostentatiousness, he was forced to change his name to ‘Old Devil Needle’.
Usually, only those who cultivated to the highest realm in any cultivation system would be called forefather, as contained the respect and admiration of a ‘primogenitor’. Therefore, within the holy ground, those who were weak would not dare to call themselves ancestor. ‘Ancestor Devil’ was able to maintain his own moniker firstly due to him already at the peak of Unity realm. Furthermore, no other Unity realm experts in the Great Void Heaven Temple was his opponent, while those at the Primal Chaos realm would not act. Thus, he was able to keep his moniker.
As for a little True God Ruler, how would he dare to call himself ancestor?
The Outer Hall Elders and Inner Hall Elders would ruthlessly teach him a lesson! It was fine to be called ancestor in some of the more rural areas. However, being called ancestor in the holy ground was practically seeking for trouble to come knocking.
“Rain Sword Guest?” Xue Ying looked at the Rain Sword Guest.
Rain Sword Guest was a sloppy male who sat cross-legged with a smile as he drank wine, while carrying a sword behind his back.
As Xue Ying was observing these two, the other golden-robed disciples and violet-robed disciples also turned towards the two of them. After all, being able to display such terrifying combative strength using the laws and profound mysteries at the Ruler realm was something everyone felt admiration for.
“Sou sou sou…” Suddenly, a large number of violet-robed disciples flew over.
“They are out.”
“The qualification trials have ended. This time, there are a total of 623 who passed through the trials. With the 100 of us, there is a total of 723 True God disciples participating in the battle.”
“They aren’t worth mentioning. Our opponents are still those ranked in the top 20.”
“This is hard to say. Of the batch of True God disciples, there are some who had just entered the Great Void Heaven Temple. Who knows if there might be some heaven-shattering newcomer present within their ranks.”
Suddenly, Xue Ying looked up after he feeling something.
One could see a group of figures flying over, with two at the lead. One was a hunchbacked old man, while the other was a white-haired male. The two of them were flying at the forefront and were casually chatting with each other happily. Even though they did not deliberately release their aura, just the level of life force they possessed created an enormous gulf between them and the rest. Xue Ying could even feel the terror coming from his own soul.
They were too high above!
Even flying through the primal chaos void, or facing an enormous cosmos would not produce a suppressive feeling that could match up with the ‘hunchbacked old man’ and the ‘white-haired male’.
That’s right. The two existences in front… were existences who could destroy a cosmos with a flip of their hands. If they were willing, they could even wield the power of destroying a ‘sacred world’! They were also the only two existences in the current five great sacred worlds and primal chaos void who had reached the final realm–Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster!
Behind the two, there were many other Primal Chaos existences–a total of 9. Ancestor Devil did not seem brilliant among them since he had, after all, cultivated for a shorter period. At this moment, he was ranked in the middle across the Great Void Heaven Temple’s palace masters.
‘According to the information, there are a total of 12 Primal Chaos realm experts in the Great Void Heaven Temple. It seems that three of them aren’t around.’ Xue Ying thought. Even though True God disciple battle was a distinguished meeting, not all the Primal Chaos experts would participate. Even ‘Swordmaster’ would frequently be in closed-door cultivation, and he might not always participate. Naturally, Swordmaster had came this time.
were the Inner Hall Elders.
“Hong long long~” High up in the sky, the cloud converged to form many thrones.
Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster sat at the highest location.
The nine Primal Chaos experts and 31 Inner Hall Elders then sat down, their gazes shooting down beneath them.
“Swordmaster, that brat is Dong Bo Xue Ying.” Ancestor Devil transmitted over. Even though they had fought for long periods in their hometown, with him treating Swordmaster as his target, Ancestor Devil understood the huge gap between him and the latter.
The white-haired male ‘Swordmaster’ looked beneath, and his gaze soon landed on the ranked 11th Xue Ying.
