Chapter 856: Within the Pagoda
The pagoda door of the Treasure Cove God Pagoda was ancient. At this moment, it was fully opened. The door was about 33 meters tall.
Xue Ying and the other four directly entered the Treasure Cove God Pagoda one after another.
‘I am in. The treasure cove of the final realm existence, Monarch Nine Cloud.’ Xue Ying stood on the black floor. It was pitch black above with many twinkling stars scattered around. Xue Ying was clear that those twinkling stars… were also treasures of this place. There were even more treasures hidden within that were located on other floors.
The Treasure Cove God Pagoda was split into three levels. There would usually only be two to three treasures found on the third level. Nevertheless, these treasures were significant even to Monarch Nine Cloud and were worth a lot. Any of those treasures would suffice to make Primal Chaos realm giants red with greed.
Suddenly, a flight of void stairs formed within the treasure pagoda. This void stair led up all the way and soon reached the dark sky at the highest spot. Furthermore, there was a simple ancient stone door appearing at the end of the stairs.
There were a total of five void stairs which led to five sets of stone doors.
Xue Ying, Sky Sword Sect Master, the muscular man, the black-fogged figure and the girl in loose gray gown both took a set of stairs each and climbing up the void stairs.
‘The law suppression here is extremely great.’ Xue Ying tried floating in the air as he walked up the void stairs. But he was being forced down by the unseen law, ensuring that he had to take step by step.
Looking at the Treasure Cove God Pagoda from outside, it was merely 330 meters tall. But the space within was humongous. Just the height of the void stairs in the first level space was already 50 kilometers long!
Xue Ying’s speed of climbing was very quickly. He had even formed afterimages from his speed. In the blink of an eye, he traveled 15 to 20 kilometers, and ‘peng’, he charged right into the void barrier.
“There are a total of three barriers on the stairs. Even if you broke through all three barriers, you still have to smash apart the stone door only could you reach the second level. Why the rush?” The sharp pitch voice came from the black-fogged figure on another set of stairs.
Xue Ying was too lazy to care about that person.
He had gotten detailed information from the Great Void Heaven Temple. Naturally, he knew what the other party said. He had just smashed apart the barrier previously in order to determine how tough it was, and whether it could be directly broken. That way, he could continue breaking through all barriers on his way.
“Break.” A god sword appeared in Xue Ying’s hand. With a flash of sword light, ‘pu pu pu’, he sent three strikes on the void barrier. “Hua~” It broke the void barrier.
At this moment, the other four were also striking the void barriers. Very soon, they had broken through the first layer of barrier.
Within the dark sky of the Treasure Cove God Pagoda’s first level, there were many bright resplendent stars. Suddenly, one of the stars fell.
Xue Ying’s eyes brightened. His arms elongated as he grabbed at that falling star. But as his arms extended to just five kilometers away, he encountered an unseen obstacle.
“This is mine.” The thick arms of the muscular man expanded similarly. When his arms extended to a few kilometers long, he grabbed hold of that falling star. At the moment he touched the star, the glowing light on the surface shattered, showing a piece of broken blade edge within. It was silver white, and anyone who saw it would feel their hearts trembling. It’s a pity that this was only a remnant piece.
‘It should be the remnant piece from a top-grade Void God weapon.’ Xue Ying made his judgment, ‘It should be valued at around 30 to 50 Origin World Rocks.’
Xue Ying and the other four continued moving forward.
Within the sparkling stars in the dark sky, there would be the occasional stars falling down. As long as one contacted it with one’s fingers, the star would dissipate to reveal the treasure within. The treasures would have differing values. Some might be worth just a few Origin World Rocks, and some might be worth close to 100 Origin World Rocks.
Xue Ying did not care much about these treasures.
Because these treasures were just from the first level. Only those weaker cultivators who occasionally come would remain for a long period in the first level.
He sent another three consecutive sword lights on the void barrier. The final void barrier on the third floor had also crumbled apart. Xue Ying formed an afterimage as he rushed to the end of the stairs. The end of the stairs connected into the sky, and there was an ancient stone door located there.
“Hong!” Xue Ying was the first to charge to where the stone door was out of the five of them. He slashed down with the sharp sword in his hand, turning into a sword light that smashed against the stone door in front. ‘Hong long long’, under the fierce strike, the stone door trembled and boomed. Large amounts of stone pieces flew apart, revealing bits and pieces of cracks.
Just at this moment when Xue Ying struck the stone door, one of the brightest stars in the dark sky suddenly dropped. It turned into a dazzling meteor which flew towards Xue Ying.
At this moment, even though Xue Ying was slashing on the stone door, he noticed that incoming star. Even the other four located within the entire Treasure Cove God Pagoda were staring at that star.
After getting the gold hairpins, they would naturally collect all sorts of related intelligence regarding the treasure coves of Monarch Nine Cloud. They also knew that in the first level of the Treasure Cove God Pagoda… once the first cultivator out of the five struck the stone door, it would immediately cause a star to fall. The treasure contained in this star would also be the most precious one amongst all the stars in the first level!
“This treasure is too precious. Isn’t he afraid that he can’t bring it out alive?” The muscular man and others were watching on thinking about that. They were clear that all other cultivators would be their competitors after entering the treasure cove! Thus, they would rather remain low-profile and not be the first to take the most precious treasure in the first level of the Treasure Cove God Pagoda.
Because the most precious treasure on the first level was considered high grade even on the second floor! If a horrifying expert was hiding among the five of them, he might just act.
This time, they would be spending three days within the Treasure Cove God Pagoda. They were patient. If they were arrogant right from the start, they would reveal their skills and most of these people would not live for long!
“Hu.” The white-robed Xue Ying stared at the falling star with his eyes behind the silver mask. He extended his left hand, and at the moment when the large falling star touched Xue Ying’s finger, the star began evaporating like a bubble, revealing the treasure within–this was a dead wood about the size of an arm. There were also many golden woolen whiskers on top of it.
The deadwood emitted an aura.
The location where it was located would be filled with endless life energy.
‘Golden Whisker Sky Thunder Wood.’ The eyes of Xue Ying brightened. His heart began jumping faster. The other four cultivators also held back their breaths. They were watching dumbstruck at this piece of deadwood.
The Golden Whisker Sky Thunder Wood…
During the earliest period of primitive Ancient Sacred World, it was worth about 1,000 Origin World Rocks. It required the descent of the operating law from the primitive Ancient Sacred World, the ‘Sky Thunder’ to strike on a ‘Golden Whisker God Tree’. Most Golden Whisker God Trees would be struck and turned into ashes, and only very few would leave a deadwood behind that was filled with life energy.
Ever since the shatter of the primitive Ancient Sacred World, there would no longer be any more Golden Whisker Sky Thunder Wood. Many Cosmos Gods had even wanted to acquire this wood.
This Golden Whisker Sky Thunder Wood could be used to refine weapons or to create a new world. It could be used to refine medicines too…
Ever since the destruction of the primitive Ancient Sacred World until now, this chunk of ‘Golden Whisker Sky Thunder Wood’ had increased in its valuation to 3,000 Origin World Rocks! That time, Monarch Nine Cloud thought that it was worth 1,000 Origin World Rocks and had placed it as one of the most important two to three treasures on the first level. That was normal. But nevertheless, its value had soared way beyond that what it was when Monarch Nine Cloud was still alive.
‘It is worth so much?’ Xue Ying felt his heart racing. A treasure worth 3,000 Origin World Rocks was considered an outstanding one even when placed at the second level of the Treasure Cove Star Pagoda! It would even make the eyes of Primal Chaos realm giants blaze with fervor.
This deadwood was worth way beyond what he had all together!
The treasure cove of a Cosmos God was indeed different.
Xue Ying extended his hand to grab. He was clutching this Golden Whisker Sky Thunder Wood tightly in his hand, and with a thought, he kept it into his storage treasure.
