Chapter 847: A Far Journey
There were some final realm existences who were not too willing to participate in the conflict between the two superpowers. For instance, Myriad World Tavern Master. The few of them would usually live within the primal chaos void. That time when the primitive Ancient Sacred World first shattered, certain unique remnant pieces belonging to the primitive Ancient Sacred World drifted into the primal chaos void. As a result, in the vast primal chaos void, other than the ordinary lands and cosmos, there were also unique places that Cosmos Gods were willing to make their home at.
The Nine Cloud Great Land, other than the original ‘Ancient Sacred World’, was was the biggest remnant piece that originated from the primitive Ancient Sacred World. This land was also where a Cosmos God, ‘Ancestor Pure One’ stayed at.
Ancestor Pure One might be staying here, but he was relatively transcendental and did not participate in the battle between the two superpowers.
In addition, there were few final realm existences. Either they were required to protect the sacred worlds or that they would stand guard at the boundary of the void. The ‘Nine Cloud Great Land’ which was one-twentieth the size of Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World would thus only see battles happening between Primal Chaos experts at most! And Xue Ying being an Inner Hall Elder had his own protective treasures. The moment he activated them, he would be able to survive against Primal Chaos realm giants for a period.
As long as he was careful, Nine Cloud Great Land was a place entirely appropriate for him to adventure in!
‘But I do not have many combat techniques–just the ‘Dark Bubble’ at the current moment. Furthermore, the enemy will be able to identify me the moment I used it.’ Xue Ying thought. Because of the assassination matter which involved the Ancient Sacred Religion, the other party could easily rewind back to the scene of the battle in the past. He could easily find out about the ‘Dark Bubble’.
If there were really an expert assassin sent by the Myriad World Tavern to deal with him!
Then it might lead to other Primal XChaos realm experts being assigned by the Ancient Sacred Religion to deal against him if he were to reveal himself on the Nine Cloud Great Land.
‘It is best if I don’t reveal myself.’ Xue Ying pondered. If danger arose within the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World, Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster could descend with their incarnations. But in the distant Nine Cloud Great Land… that location was deep in the primal chaos void, and it would require some time for the two palace masters to arrive.
‘Let’s attempt the sixth level Star Pagoda.’
Xue Ying shot up into the sky; he followed along the spatial vortex located above before entering the sixth level.
The Star Pagoda sixth level was of a desolate desert. There were fragments of green plants with tenacious vitality growing in it. Suddenly, blood light surged out from within the desert. This blood light converged into a blood-armored enchantress.
‘Just one enemy again?’ Xue Ying muttered inwardly.
The fourth to sixth level contained just a single blood-armored enemy. But after chatting with Forefather Tian Yu, he understood that the Destruction Devils had differing power–from the first level of Star Pagoda to the Cosmos God level!
“A Unity realm brat?” The blood-armored enchantress lightly chuckled. At that time, a vast enchanting pink aura began spreading out. It almost overwhelmed the entire sixth level of the Star Pagoda. Even if all the green plants had a more tenacious vitality in the desert, they began withering within moments. This pink aura made Xue Ying feel his life being threatened.
His law domain might be able to withstand against it, but Xue Ying was clearly having a hard time.
“Hua.” The blood-armored enchantress giggled. Her figure turned into nine, and with a flash, those figures tunneled into the law domain of Xue Ying. The nine blood figures charged right against him.
Xue Ying was defeated very quickly.
Even though he could hardly discern the enemy’s actual body, he still unleashed six Dark Bubbles. Each Dark Bubble could envelop around two bodies of the enemy, and naturally, he could extinguish eight incarnations of the enemy at once, leaving behind her true body that wasn’t injured from the attack at all. At that time, however, the enemy had already reached Xue Ying.
Xue Ying was not confident of his own teleportation. Instead, he hurriedly activated the protective treasure and admitted defeat!
He had no choice.
The absolute art Dark World was like this. Usually, he could still kill the enemy from afar, but if the enemy reached close to him, he would be defeated soon after.
Xue Ying flew out of the Star Pagoda.
‘I should properly cultivate and improve other aspects of my cultivation as soon as possible. If I were to visit the Nine Cloud Great Land with just this technique, I’ll be suffering big time. Furthermore, this move is too easily recognizable.’ Xue Ying thought. The 13 Apocalyptic Swords was a move which could turn into various close combat killing moves, making it hard for the other party to discern what technique it was. But this ‘Dark Bubble’ move could easily be discerned with a single glance!
Xue Ying was not anxious either. He spent the following days frequently reading in the Myriad Elephant Palace Hall. Even though he had read through them before and even memorized the content, reading the original copy was different. The original copy contained vestiges left behind by the expert writers themselves and was more appropriate for Xue Ying to experience them. He would occasionally discuss Dao and spar with other Inner Hall Elders too.
After about 2,000 years or so since he visited the Star Pagoda, Xue Ying had prepared himself well. He once again entered the Palace Hall of Time to cultivate.
Unity realm experts would have to fork out a higher price when spending time in the Palace Hall of Time. Accelerating time at hundred times for 100 million years cost a total of 25 Origin World Rocks. Fortunately, he could use 250,000 contribution points to pay for this. Xue Ying was clearly fussing over these minor matters because he had to earn enough Origin World Rocks to achieve his goal of getting the ‘Scarlet Cloud Pomegranate Core’.
Currently, he was at the Unity realm and thus, his soul was much stronger than when it was at the Origin Birth realm. Xue Ying’s speed of comprehension was extremely quick too. During the starting days of entering the Palace Hall of Time, Xue Ying primarily focused on cultivating the Walker’s Hidden Secret.
The reason was that he was that he was close to breaking through ever since he cultivated it at Celestial Water City’s ‘Qi Ya Incense Wood cultivation room’.
Everything went as expected. After cultivating for 66,000 years in the Palace Hall of Time, he had broken through to the 31st level of Walker’s Hidden Secret! He had finally entered the Unity realm in the Voidwalker system.
Within the Palace Hall of Time, on a planet with a green plain, Xue Ying was seated cross-legged on it. There was a layer of pitch black primal chaos void energy surrounding the surface of his body. His body was currently undergoing a qualitative transformation towards a higher major realm.
‘Breaking through different realms feels differently indeed.’ Xue Ying opened his mouth, spitting out a ray of rainbow light. The rainbow light soon dissipated.
‘Right now, I should peacefully comprehend the laws and profound mysteries.’
Previously, the reason why he decided to improve in the Voidwalker system was first, he was about to break through in this system, and secondly, this transformation would be helpful to his soul. A stronger soul meant he could cultivate faster as well.
Xue Ying was confident of himself.
Even though his talent on the Dao of Slaughter and Dao of Ripple was weaker than that of the Dao of Mirage, he could reach the Star Pagoda fifth level in both these aspects by spending a little more time on them! After all, he had depended on the 13 Apocalyptic Swords to get through the third level at the Origin Birth realm.
Every 100 million years, the Great Void Heaven Temple would accept disciples across the 12 primal chaos cities. After approximately 90 million years since Xue Ying entered closed-door cultivation, the new batch of disciples had entered.
“Great Void Heaven Temple.”
This group of True God disciples was looking at the many floating mountains with shock and astonishment, especially at the towering palace located on the biggest land–that palace was emitting a light which reflected across the entire space. As that light shone over these True God disciples, it made them feel nervous and excited at the same time.
They were here.
They had finally succeeded in entering the holy ground ‘Great Void Heaven Temple’! How difficult was it to join a holy ground? All of them had great talent and had passed through many trials.
“You all have just entered the Sky Palace Hall. It is forbidden for you to enter into certain areas. Some are places where the violet-robed disciples live in, and some are for the golden-robed disciples, and even the Inner Hall Elders and Hall Masters. You would be punished for your actions if you were to intrude into those places.” The leading Outer Hall Elder explained, “Follow me.”
Within this large group of disciples, there was a couple which came from the Celestial Water City–Lei Chen and Qing Ruo.
“I wonder where is Elder Dong Bo?” The relatively muscular Lei Chen said. The husband and wife had crossed through many bumpy roads, finally passing through the trials to become the newest ordinary disciples within the Great Void Heaven Temple.
“Elder Dong Bo? The two of you know Elder Dong Bo?” Another True God disciple asked from the side.
“Elder Dong Bo has a great favor for us.” Lei Chen and Qing Ruo said.
“You all are quite fortunate to get to know Elder Dong Bo.” This True God disciple said, “Elder Dong Bo is an Inner Hall Elder of the Great Void Heaven Temple, and is able to get through the fifth level of Star Pagoda after reaching the Unity realm. He is talented… and will likely become a hall master in the future of our Great Void Heaven Temple. I, Yan Qiong’s goal is to become someone like Elder Dong Bo in the future.”
“You still dare to say it.”
There were quite a few True God disciples who had a powerful background. After all, only with this could they have a good cultivation environment, and only then would it increase their chances of getting through the trials of Great Void Heaven Temple. Naturally, many had heard of Elder Dong Bo as someone extremely talented! And there were quite a few disciples that desired to become as dazzling as Elder Dong Bo.
But they were just thinking in their hearts. To say their dreams out in public would only invite public ridicule.
For instance, ever since the creation of Great Void Heaven Temple, the number of geniuses who could compare with Elder Dong Bo could be counted with one’s fingers.
After Lei Chen and Qing Ruo found their places in the Great Void Heaven Temple, they had gone to pay Xue Ying a visit, but it’s a pity that Xue Ying had always been in closed-door cultivation!
This closed-door cultivation was very long.
Xue Ying spent a total of 180 million years–the total time in the outside world–cultivating. Within the Palace Hall of Time, Xue Ying had spent a total of 180 billion years. All of this was done in preparations of his upcoming journey to the Nine Cloud Great Land! Currently, he was at a bottleneck and could no longer improve. That was also the reason why he chose to exit cultivation now.
Outside the Palace Hall of Time, a white-robed Xue Ying appeared in midair.
