Chapter 855: Treasure Cove God Pagoda
Pure Resistance City was a city created by the Cosmos God ‘Ancestor Pure One’. The quantity and quality of the cultivators gathered in this city were higher as compared to those in the primal chaos cities under the Great Void Heaven Temple because the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World was much safer–the two religions would only dispatch incarnations of Primal Chaos realm expert into the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World at most. Furthermore, those with sufficient statuses in the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World could directly report upwards to those like Forefather Tian Yu and Devil Mountain Primogenitor for them to send their incarnations down.
Thus, some of those experts who could reach the fifth level Star Pagoda could easily occupy a region within the three great sacred worlds and did not have to fear the two religions.
But it was different on the ‘Nine Cloud Great Land’!
The two great religions had stationed Primal Chaos experts here for long periods, resulting in a more dangerous location. Those who wanted to cultivate in peace were more willing to remain within the cities created by Ancestor Pure One and receive his protection.
After pushing open the courtyard door, the white-robed Xue Ying left the place, ‘Sky Sword Sect Master who is the slowest has finally arrived.’
He had just received information sent by Sky Sword Sect Master that they would be gathering at the assembly point. It was time for them to head to the treasure cove of Monarch Nine Cloud.
‘There isn’t a single person at the fifth level Star Pagoda strength in Celestial Water City, with only three at the fourth level strength.’ Xue Ying could see from the aura of the experts in this city. He felt slightly rueful. After 30 million years, he was quite familiar with the Pure Resistance City, ‘And there are only one at the fifth level Star Pagoda strength in this city, 12 at the fourth level strength and so many at the third level strength that it could frighten others…’
The sacred worlds naturally had more experts, but they were scattered across the sacred world. Excluding the Primal Chaos giants belonging to the Great Void Heaven Temple, the Primogenitor Island, and the Jade Light Sacred Territory in the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World, given how vast the sacred world was, many other Primal Chaos superpowers were living in more remote areas… with more than half these giants being unwilling to join the holy grounds. They would rather form their own territory so that none would be commanding them.
For instance, the ‘Ancestor Desert Palace’ of Eastern Unicorn Sacred World did not depend on any Cosmos Gods at all.
Xue Ying was tearing through the void within the city. He soon arrived outside a courtyard.
There was already a True God puppet lifeform serving outside the courtyard. That puppet lifeform extended his hand and stopped Xue Ying: “Please stop.”
“Five people.” Xue Ying said. This was the secret signal told to him by Sky Sword Sect Master.
“Please.” The puppet lifeform no longer obstructed him.
Xue Ying entered.
This courtyard wasn’t too big. After crossing through the frontcourt, he soon arrived at an inner palace hall where there were three other figures gathered. Xue Ying did not recognize any of them.
“Brother Flying Snow.” Sky Sword Sect Master transmitted over, “I’m already here. The one wearing a golden robe on the left is me. Why did you not change your appearance?”
Xue Ying remained white-robed and white-haired with a silver mask on his face.
“The others will change their aura, appearances and try to conceal their identities this time. Otherwise, after the matter ends… once the information about them getting the treasure is spread, it’ll attract countless troubles.” Sky Sword Sect Master transmitted over, “After the matter ends if I successfully got the treasures, I would even remain in Pure Resistance City for a long period. I would at most send my incarnation back to Sky Sword Mountain. You should be vigilant too and not reveal your identity.”
“Brother Sky Sword, don’t misunderstand things. My current appearance isn’t my true appearance. After all, I am not fully confident of the previous matter of intervening between you and the Blaze Valley Master. I do not wish to fail and even offend a huge enemy like Blaze Valley Master.” Xue Ying transmitted over.
At this moment, the gold-robed Sky Sword Sect Master became slightly astonished.
What a guy…
This Flying Snow wasn’t showing his true appearance at all.
“The fourth person is here.” There were three seated in the palace hall. Other than a gold-robed Sky Sword Sect Master, there was one in a black robe and covered in mild black fog. It was hard to discern if he was a male or a female. The third was a massive hunk with a big body and exceptionally huge arms. His thighs were of average thickness, though his arms were bigger than his thighs. He was emitting a savage aura.
“Sit.” This muscular male said, “We are waiting for the last person.”
“Mn.” Xue Ying did not reply. He just chose a position and sat down.
The four figures were situated in the palace hall. It was quiet. Everyone knew that they gathered this time because of using each other’s gold hairpin. Once they entered the treasure cove, they might just become competitors. For the sake of treasures, they would kill each other… that was something which happened frequently. Thus, everyone had to maintain vigilance and not even reveal their identities at all.
Just a moment later, a woman wearing a loose gray gown came. This woman had an ordinary appearance, though her eyes were filled with an unseen pressure.
‘Mn?’ Xue Ying looked at the other party’s eyes and could not help but feel a jolt in his heart, ‘Third level of the heart realm?’
The heart realm was split into three major levels.
His hometown cosmos might have given birth to several Void Gods, but currently, only the Swordmaster and Ancestor Devil had reached the third level of heart realm. Xue Ying might have a great comprehension ability, but after coming to the holy ground Great Void Heaven Temple, he experienced too few things. The majority of the time was spent in closed-door cultivating, and he did not have many breakthroughs in his heart realm.
Just like Ancestor Devil and Swordmaster, they were once rivals. During the earlier period, Ancestor Devil was stronger. But eventually, Swordmaster became even more overwhelming and profound in his strength and had completely flung Ancestor Devil aside! Ancestor Devil treated Swordmaster as his rival and eventually broke through in his heart realm too.
The two were competing with each other. As for Xue Ying, he experienced much too few things as compared to the two of them.
‘This girl seems to have reached the third level of heart realm, yet she did not plan on hiding it? Is it because she has absolute confidence in herself?’ Xue Ying was inwardly shocked. If the other party deliberately kept her aura, he would not discover how frightening her willpower was.
“Alright, everyone is here.” The muscular man stood up. He merely glanced at the girl who came last without minding her too much.
Because a profound heart realm did not mean she would be powerful. Some cultivation systems focused more on the heart realm like hex and the laws and profound mysteries system. Some did not care about it at all like the devour class system and the bloodline system…
“Everyone did not bring any other lifeforms in your Eden treasure right?” The muscular male said in a low voice. His voice had a suppressive characteristic within, “The gold hairpin teleportation could only send five living beings in. The moment we bring any other living beings with us in our Eden treasure, the teleportation will fail.”
“Naturally I did not.”
“This point is something I know.”
All of them acknowledged.
The golden-robed Sky Sword Sect Master then said, “Let us take out our gold hairpin.”
“Mn.” Everyone present did not hesitate. With a flip of their hands, the five experts brought out a gold hairpin each in their hands. This made everyone present relaxed. Even though they had only contacted each other through a single line, and had vaguely admitted that they had a gold hairpin each, it was much better seeing it with their eyes.
The five of them immediately activated the gold hairpin in their hands with their Void God energy.
After the five gold hairpins were activated, at that point, mysterious golden patterns were floating on the surface of the hairpins. Xue Ying could no longer feel the hairpin in his hand being controlled by himself. A horrifying spatial power forced the hairpin out of it. The five gold hairpins flew together, and as they flew into midair of the palace hall, their golden patterns began producing a frightening spatial array.
Space was like water flowing at this moment. Xue Ying could feel his body comfortably going through the water-like space, and when the scene ahead of him became clear, he had already arrived at another location.
This location was already somewhere far from where the Pure Resistance City was.
Xue Ying and the other four figures landed on a stone beach. Behind them was a piece of white distorted space.
And ahead of them, there was a towering golden pagoda!
“Treasure Cove God Pagoda.” That muscular male with thick arms could not help but blurt out in excitement.
“It is the Treasure Cove God Palace. We are finally here.” The figure who was enveloped faintly in black fog said as well. His voice seemed slightly sharp.
Xue Ying’s eyes brightened as well as he looked at that god pagoda which towered close to 330 meters in height.
Treasure Cove God Pagoda!
That time right before the Cosmos God ‘Monarch Nine Cloud’ died, he left behind 16 treasure coves, and they were 16 Treasure Cove God Pagodas!
The Treasure Cove God Pagodas were hidden in unique spaces within different regions of the Nine Cloud Great Land. With Monarch Nine Cloud’s strength, if he decided to construct a location with all his power, the other Cosmos Gods would not be able to find them. Destroying the entire Nine Cloud Great Land was pointless because these 16 Treasure Cove God Pagodas… were not located within the ordinary Nine Cloud Great Land world.
This was a space entirely white in color with a diameter of several dozen kilometers. At the center of this space was a god pagoda.
Many information floated in the mind of Xue Ying.
Want to leave?
There were two ways. First was to directly fly out towards the distant white boundary and contact directly with the distorted space at the end. One would be teleported out into the ordinary Nine Cloud Great Land world.
The other method was to stay within this space for three days. At the end of three days, even if one weren’t willing to leave, he would still be forced out of this place.
‘I must gather sufficient treasures within the next three days.’ Xue Ying looked at the Treasure Cove God Pagoda in front of him. His eyes turned sharp. As long as he earned a great deal this time, then he could gather sufficient materials to aid the cultivation of Jing Qiu and Yu’er. This time, none should dare obstruct his path!
Xue Ying’s desire was the same as the other four. This was a treasure cove of a Cosmos God!
“Sou sou sou sou sou!”
Along with the girl in a loose gray gown who flew out first, the others also turned into streams of light as they flew towards the central Treasure Cove God Pagoda with an already opened door.
