Chapter 862: Fortune
The muscular male and Undying City Master were both people with some reputation and status. Currently, for the sake of surviving, they were obediently using their full force to break the small meteorite hill. They were not interested in being ‘unyielding’ and disobey Xue Ying because the outcome of doing that… would result in Xue Ying unhesitantly killing them. They had already prepared themselves mentally before attacking Xue Ying should they fail.
Either they succeed, or they fail and die. Currently, Xue Ying left them a route to survival, and that was considered great for them.
In the blink of an eye, a day had passed.
“Annoying.” Xue Ying frowned as he looked at the small meteorite hill which was about 33 meters tall in front of him. Currently, both Undying City Master and the muscular male were striking against it. If not for the “Multi-Layered Dark World” technique, Undying City Master and the muscular male would be stronger than Xue Ying in terms of offense, making their efficiency of destroying the small meteorite hill even higher.
Many little gouges were forming continually. The entire small meteorite hill was just like an apple being bitten bit by bit.
Large amounts of shattered rocks landed by the side, of which Xue Ying brought many of them up.
His 112 layers of Dark World descended and enveloped those meteorite pieces of about half a meter in diameter. Closely following that, his 112 layers of Dark World exploded. Its power converged and bombarded on those meteorite pieces, causing them to turn into powder instantaneously. This caused both the muscular male and Undying City Master to be speechless.
Even though they had seen it many times, this destruction power still made them apprehensive.
‘This move should be close to the sixth level of Star Pagoda power already right?’ The muscular male muttered inwardly, ‘My body is extremely tough, yet it is still heavily injured by his technique. This world destruction move seems familiar. Is he that new Inner Hall Elder from the Great Void Heaven Temple?’
Undying City Master had stayed for a long period within Nine Cloud Great Land and thus, knew very little.
It was different for the muscular male. His horizon was much broader. Thinking thoroughly, he was able to ascertain that the most famous character at the Unity realm who specialized in this sort of illusory world destruction should be the new Inner Hall Elder ‘Xue Ying’ from the Great Void Heaven Temple. But it did not seem so powerful according to the intelligence reports.
‘This is getting annoying. We’ve only destroyed 20% of the entire meteorite small hill after a day. Could we do it in three days?’ Xue Ying began feeling anxious, ‘Ai, why can’t I display the second style of Dark World despite comprehending it already? Even though I am close to breaking through in my apocalyptic sixth sword, it is very normal to get stuck in this for millions of years. I am only left with two days, and I cannot be distracted from my current task.’
Displaying 112 layers of Dark World required all his mental energy. He could not split his attention to cultivating.
‘I haven’t broken through in my heart realm similarly. If I broke through, my combat power should be able to reach the sixth level Star Pagoda strength too.’ Xue Ying thought.
He could display a total of 112 layers of world using his self-created “Multi-Layered Dark World” with his current soul strength! The more layers there were, the more powerful it would be. There were not many methods for making his soul stronger. Either he induces a qualitative change by stepping into the Primal Chaos realm, or he consumes a large amount of Origin World Rocks. But the amount of rocks required would be enormous.
There was another way, and that was to improve his realm.
The third heart realm.
Many Unity realm experts could not even step into the third realm, and it was the same with Xue Ying too. Some of the cultivation systems which did not emphasize the heart realm had Primal Chaos realm giants who did not reach the third heart realm.
The third heart realm was known as ‘Heart as the World’. The moment one broke through, his soul quality would also advance just like metal being forged into steel! Using the same soul, when he reached the first heart realm, it was as brightly lit as colored glass. Once he reached the second level, the entire soul was as sharp as a blade—it could press forward without stop. If he were to enter the third heart realm, then his willpower would suffice to cause the death of True God Rulers.
With a single glance, the other party would die! That was absolutely true.
Under that circumstance, the strength of the heart was so strong that Xue Ying could easily control a set of flying daggers with his soul. And even when displaying the “Multi-Layered Dark World”, he would be able to form more than 112 layers. It might even reach 300 to 500 layers! Only after breaking through would he know of the outcome. Naturally, his strength would also increase substantially, and it should achieve the sixth level Star Pagoda power.
‘It’s a pity that it is the hardest to break through in the heart realm. It is even harder to ponder over it.’ Xue Ying shook his head.
The first two level of the heart realm could still be tempered with using several methods.
But the third level, the ‘Heart as the World’ was something nobody had any way of doing so. The Great Void Heaven Temple did not have any methods of allowing one to reach this stage. Instead, one had to depend on himself to do so!
Since Xue Ying could not break through in his strength, he could only do his best to break those meteorite pieces into powder.
The muscular male was continuously pummelling down on the meteorites. Suddenly, at this moment when he punched out, he hit an empty space.
“There is a space within.” The muscular male said.
Xue Ying revealed a joyous look. He urged him on. Undying City Master was also helping out. After the array plate illusion shrank, it began grinding that piece of meteorite. The muscular male was also doing his best to smash it. Xue Ying though was still turning the smaller stones into powder before finally—’hong~’ that piece of meteorite completely collapsed, revealing a space within. There was a black armor floating inside.
“Alright.” Xue Ying let out a sound of praise. Nevertheless, he was quite calm on the surface.
The black armor was a peak-graded Void God weapon, and it was worth 300 Origin World Rocks! The only thing that made Xue Ying disappointed was that the hole which the black armor occupied was not big—it was only a meter long.
One had to know…
The small meteorite hill contained many treasures. Every single treasure would occupy a ‘space’. During the process of attacking, there would be space collapsing. The bigger the spatial hole, the more time it would save. Just a meter long… was not worth mentioning to a small meteorite hill of 330 meters tall.
“Continue.” Xue Ying let out a thought before causing that black armor to fly over and into Xue Ying’s storage treasure. He then ordered them to continue.
The muscular male and the Undying City Master could only watch in envy before resuming their labor.
The second day passed too, and it was now the third and final day. More than 50% of the entire meteorite small hill had been destroyed, but clearly, time was too tight.
When Undying City Master controlled the array plate illusion to grind a region of the meteorite, suddenly with a ‘peng’, it directly penetrated through.
“There’s a treasure.” Undying City Master added.
Xue Ying’s unseen ripple had long been unleashed. It was observing every single region at all times. Naturally, he had discovered this situation. The ripple followed along the penetrated cavern hole to investigate the space within. It made Xue Ying reveal frantic joy. He was someone remarkably calm, but there was a delight on his face that could hardly be concealed because the space was humongous!
“Quick, quick.” Xue Ying urged on.
“Peng peng peng!”
Both of them were doing their best to attack the meteorite. For a moment, it caused many pieces of meteorite pieces to collapse. This was an ultra huge hole. One had to know that the small meteorite hill was 330 meters tall, but it was only more than 33 meters long. And now, this spatial hole had a diameter of about 50 meters long, and at the very least, more than 10 meters long.
This space occupied a majority half of the remaining meteorite. It gave Xue Ying newfound hope when he saw that.
Within this vast spatial hole, there was a sapling placed inside. It was about 50 meters long, and its leaves were jade green.
“Jade Ripple World God Tree.” Xue Ying revealed looks of delight. This was also the most precious treasure out of the nine which he had discovered from this small meteorite hill. Its value was about 1,600 Origin World rocks and far transcended the other eight added up.
“Hong hong hong~”
The process after that was quick. After more than half the third day passed, with just six hours left, the muscular male and Undying City Master were also doing their best to smash the meteorite pieces. Xue Ying was also displaying his Many-Layered Dark World to attack the final meteorite pieces.
Following a final ringing sound.
All the meteorite pieces were smashed into powder.
“Succeeded.” The muscular male and Undying City Master might be taken as free labor force, but they still felt their hearts lightening since they were always afraid Xue Ying would just kill them if they could not destroy the entire small meteorite hill within the third day. Now, Xue Ying’s mood was not bad.
‘The entire small meteorite hill contained a total of 10 treasures. Adding up, they are valued at about 3,800 Origin World Rocks. There is also the Golden Whisker Sky Thunder Wood which I got in the first level! It’s a pity that I still lack a lot to reach the goal of 10,000 Origin World Rocks!’ Xue Ying thought. But he still felt quite warm in his heart since his reward this time was truly frightening.
A spatial entrance appeared in midair.
Xue Ying had already released his Plate Ripple Diagram to suppress all directions. He did not wish for someone to enter during the final moment! Because this spatial entrance would only allow one person to enter before it closed.
“Sou.” Xue Ying flew to the side of the entrance before looking downwards.
The muscular male and Undying City Master felt extremely anxious. The muscular male said, “You said before that you will spare our lives after we helped you.” He could even guess the identity of Xue Ying, but he did not dare say for inciting the ire of Xue Ying.
“Hand over all your treasures.” Xue Ying looked downwards, “And I’ll spare your lives.”
“All our treasures?” The two were stunned for a moment. But they were straightforward in handing all their treasures and weapons over.
It was already good if they could survive.
With a thought, Xue Ying brought all those treasures up before keeping them.
Closely following that, Xue Ying turned around and entered the spatial entrance. After entering, the spatial entrance located in midair disappeared.
Only then did Undying City Master and the muscular male let out sighs of relief.
“Fortunately, he did not kill us.” The two of them had been walking along the boundary of death.
“Hong.” The muscular male turned around before waving his fists. He continued smashing down on the small meteorite hill nearby.
Undying City Master was also jolted awake. He hurriedly chose one of the nearby small meteorite hills and continued attacking it. He had to make use of all the time he had! There was still three days, and he might be able to get some treasures that could cover up his losses during this period. If he were lucky, he might even earn a great deal!
