Chapter 809: Dazzling
“Ancestor Devil, this Dong Bo Xue Ying came from the same cosmos as you, right? This brat seems quite formidable. He is actually able to get into the top ten of the True God disciples despite having only been Great Void Heaven Temple for a while.”
“Swordmaster has broken through to the final realm, and you, Ancestor Devil has long reached the Primal Chaos realm. I wonder what realm will this brat from your same cosmos will reach in the future.”
The hall masters around were praising him too.
Ancestor Devil might have some slight praise and satisfaction, but he still said: “He is just a True God disciple. It is still too early to say if he would become an Inner Hall Elder in the future.”
“Inner Hall Elder?”
The other Hall Masters chuckled and did not continue speaking anymore.
What a joke!
How difficult was it to become an Inner Hall Elder?
According to the statuses of the inner Great Void Heaven Temple, the subsequent rank after the Palace Master and the Hall Master would be the Inner Hall Elders! And thereafter the Outer Hall Elders.
Even if golden-robed disciples broke through to become Void God, the majority would end up as Outer Hall Elders. It was too difficult to become an Inner Hall Elder. Those who could become on within the Great Void Heaven Temple would shock an entire region! Even the Primal Chaos realm giants would attach importance to them.
Although Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster seated at the highest area were praising Xue Ying, they remained calm inside their hearts. The things that could rifle them at their level were too few and far between.
The challenges within the Hidden World Field continued.
After Xue Ying attained the seventh rank, he returned back to seat on his designated stone pillar. He kept an extremely low profile while watching the battles. Unlike from the other True God disciples. Xue Ying watched every single battle seriously and had even analyzed the profound mysteries used by the other disciples. Even though some disciple brothers and sisters were weaker than him, their usage of the laws and profound mysteries still made Xue Ying’s eyes light up.
As he understood more and more, he would occasionally have some new understanding of the second sword of ’13 Apocalyptic Swords’.
To other disciples… this ranking battle would determine their statuses!
In contrast, this was an area for Xue yING where he could gather insights! That’s because he had too few experiences of watching battle using other laws and profound mysteries! He would not be able to understand and comprehend if it were a battle between Primal Chaos giants, On the contrary, this ranking battle was the most appropriate for him.
Years flew by.
The 700 over disciples had challenged one after another. The battles between them were either so close that they determined life and death, or resulted in one side admitting defeat. If a victor could not be determined in the battle, the ‘Hidden World Field treasure spirit’ would naturally intervene and judge who the victor was! For instance, if one side had great escaping capabilities and kept escaping whereas the other kept pursuing after him, then the treasure spirit would determine the party escaping as the loser!
If one had great survival capabilities and was completely on the disadvantaged side, depending on his survival capabilities to hold on further without ways of retaliating, he would eventually be judged as the loser too.
The battles were very intense.
Despite that, Xue Ying did not challenge others; He was focusing earnestly as he observed the battles. There were other disciples who took the initiative to challenge him, with Xue Ying winning all of them. Thus, his power was recognized publicly too.
“This ranking battle has persisted for eight years already. Mn, it’s time to challenge the others.” Xue Ying stood up, “I have three chances of being defeated. I should treasure this opportunity.”
Xue Ying had temporarily achieved his first goal of getting into the top ten so as to obtain the treasures.! Being currently ranked at seventh, it was a relatively safe position since he would only move back by a single position if he was to suffer a defeat.
Secondly, it was for the sake of gaining experiences so that he could grow!
In order to help his wife Jing Qiu and Yu’er, he had to grow and become stronger! The stronger he was, the better it would be since it would be easier to obtain some precious materials that could aid in cultivation.
Watching the countless battles was really helpful for him!
The effects were even better in actual combat!
Xue Ying suddenly flew out.
“It’s Dong Bo Xue Ying.”
“He is out again.”
The attention of all disciples was jolted, as battles between golden-robed disciples had a great attraction to them.
“Junior Disciple Brother Flood Dragon, please.” Xue Ying held onto the spear, looking at the distant golden-robed disciple. He was none other than the current ranked eighth golden-robed disciple.
“Challenging me?” Junior Disciple Brother Flood Dragon was an expert with a scale on the crown of his head. Originally a mutated beast, he had managed turned into a human. Nonetheless, he always felt that the head of his actual body was the most beautiful part. This result in him keeping the scaled head of his. A rich voice rang out from him, “Hahaha, Senior Disciple Brother Dong Bo Xue Ying, you are ranked seventh, yet you are challenging me, the eighth-ranked. If you were to win, you would still be ranked seventh. But if you were defeated, you would drop to the eighth-ranked. This battle has no benefits for you unless you want to make it a wager? I will not gamble with you!”
“It’s not a wager battle. It’s just that Junior Disciple Brother Flood Dragon has cultivated the 13 Apocalyptic Swords as well. This made my hands feel itchy.” Xue Ying mentioned.
“Alright. I’ll joyfully accept it then.” Junior Disciple Brother Flood Dragon guffawed.
He loved such battles the most.
If he lost, it would not affect his ranking. This battle with Xue Ying was purely for the sake of competing on their usage of the 13 Apocalyptic Swords.
Flood Dragon immediately arced through the sky, the saber in his hand traveling in a strange crescent arc. The crescent arc presented a violet color, and it was misty and beautiful. At the same time, it brought with it a horrifying cruelty.
He and Xue Ying were the same. Even though they both cultivated the “13 Apocalyptic Swords”, they both fused them into their own respective techniques. Ultimately, learning absolute arts was about the utilization of the ‘Dao of Slaughter’ contained within them.
“Hong hong hong~”
The surrounding void vibrated and exploded time after time.
Xue Ying competed with Flood Dragon again and again. Excitement filled the two as they continued to exchange moves. Flood Dragon had even transformed back to his original body, while Xue Ying also unleashed the strength of the Voidwalker body. In the end, Flood Dragon ended up being injured. Despite that, he shouted out delightedly, “Hahaha, I don’t want to fight anymore. I admit defeat!”
Xue Ying then turned to the sixth-ranked golden-robed disciple: “Senior Disciple Sister Qian Que, please!”
“He is continuing on?”
The many spectating disciples were shocked.
Senior Disciple Sister Qian Que wore a gorgeous and radiant yellow robe, with her golden hair reaching her shoulders. At this moment, her eyes were looked at Xue Ying in the distance. Despite, her cold expression, a guqin appeared in her hands.
Relying on the Slaughter Domain to reduce the domain suppression of the other party before relying on the Dao of Mirage to increase his survival capabilities, Xue Ying managed to inch a victory over sixth-ranked Senior Disciple Sister Qian Que.
He then proceeded to challenge the fifth-ranked golden-robed disciple! Using both Slaughter Domain and his incarnation technique, he frantically attacked and barely won the battle.
He issued yet another challenge to the fourth-ranked disciple.
“Senior Disciple Brother Zhe Que Yong, please.” Xue Ying announced. His voice reverberated across the entire Hidden World Field.
At this moment, all other battles in the Hidden World Field had temporarily come to a halt, as all of the True God disciples were staring at Xue Ying. Even the Outer Hall Elders, Inner Hall Elders, Hall Masters and both ‘Forefather Tian Yu’ and ‘Swordmaster’ were no longer chatting idly. They were instead watching the battle with great interest. That was because Xue Ying actually challenged the golden-robed disciples in succession!
“He actually challenged the fourth-ranked Senior Disciple Brother Zhe Que Yong.”
“Senior Disciple Brother Zhe Que Yong is extraordinary. It isn’t easy to defeat him.”
Even though the gap between golden-robed disciples was small, one who was ranked fourth compared to those ranked eighth and ninth had a clearer and more distinct superiority.
The battle proceeded.
Zhe Que Yong turned back into his original appearance. He was a rarely seen void creature that appeared to be a chrysalis lifeform, with a head that was much smaller than its body. Despite that, he possessed countless densely pack claws.. Flying at a high speed, he chased after Xue Ying! Even though there was the ‘Slaughter Domain’ restricting and entangling the other party, the many claws on the surface of Zhe Que Yong’s body tore apart the Slaughter Domain as he flew about, resulting in not much of a drop in his speed.
All of a sudden, he lowered his head and knocked towards an empty space! A spearhead also appeared from the empty space and clashed against his head.
This clash contained the profound mystery from the cosmos ranked absolute art “World Guard”.
“Pu.” Xue Ying appeared from nothingness, before spurting out a mouthful of blood.
“Senior Disciple Brother Zhe Que Yong is really formidable. Receive this spear of mine.” Xue Ying felt that he battled enough. He had already felt the power from the innate talent of this rarely seen void creature lifeform accompanied with the cosmos ranked absolute art. The spear in Xue Ying’s hand moved.
The spear rotated and rolled outwards, revolving just like an eternal maelstrom with no end. Swirling the ripples formed by the Slaughter Domain, all of the Slaughter Domain ripples were being absorbed by this spear body. At this moment, terrifying power proceeded to accumulate in the spear and to coil around this spear.
Xue Ying felt the spear in his hand getting heavier and heavier, while its power growing increasingly terrifying.
When he first entered closed-door cultivation in the ‘Palace Hall of Time’, he had already succeeded in fusing the Apocalyptic First Sword with the Dao of Ripple! However, in the years after that, as he comprehended the Apocalyptic Second Sword, as his realms improved. This allowed him to perfect the fusion between the Dao of Ripple with the Apocalyptic First Sword. Despite that, Xue Ying felt that it was not perfect enough!
After all, the gap between his attainments in the Dao of Ripple was too big from that of the Apocalyptic First Sword. This resulted in him only being able to perfect it step by step.
The eyes of Forefather Tian Yu, Swordmaster and the group of Hall Master who was watching from above lit up. They were carefully watching the spear which Xue Ying was displaying at the current moment.
