Chapter 889: Vermillion Nightmare Eight Transformations
In the blink of an eye, it had been 300,000 years since Jing Qiu transcended.
Myriad Ancient Sacred World, within the rear mountain of Green Peng Sect inside the cavern-dwelling cultivation room of Daoist Elder.
There was an incense lighted. The fragrance pervaded within the cultivation room. Xue Ying sat cross-legged on a praying mat in his white robe. He was currently cultivating the ancient cultivation ‘Vermillion Nightmare inheritance’. A fiery red bird illusion bore out from Xue Ying’s body before spreading its wings apart. The fiery red aura spread out in all directions, and there was an indistinct world appearing amidst this aura.
Suddenly, a resounding cry sounded within the cultivation room. It had even transmitted out of the room, easily reaching out to the entire Green Peng Sect. All the cultivators within Green Peng Sect felt their souls fluctuating slightly before turning back to normal.
“What is happening?”
“It seems like it came from the cavern-dwelling of the Daoist Elder.” Some of the Unity realm experts in the Green Peng Sect could barely determine it. But they merely watched from afar and discussed amongst themselves. They dared not disturb that mysterious Daoist Elder.
And within this cultivation room, accompanied by the first cry from this Vermillion Nightmare illusion, the Vermillion Nightmare illusion became more corporeal. Xue Ying opened his eyes too. The eyes of the Vermillion Nightmare behind him had an almost exact same spirit as the eyes of Xue Ying.
‘Vermillion Nightmare Eight Transformations. I’ve finally reached the fourth transformation, attaining the Unity realm.’ Xue Ying revealed a grin.
Even though it was because his current realm was profound, this horrifying speed of cultivation sufficed to make others dumbstruck should it be leaked.
Xue Ying was clear though that this was all because of his great talent in the Dao of Mirage. Even though the ‘Nightmare Vermillion’ pertained to many different profound mysteries of the illusory realm and were slightly more unique, Xue Ying could easily comprehend them after slightly pondering over it. If a Primal Chaos giant who studied the ‘Dao of Mirage’ cultivated the Voidwalker lineage, his speed of cultivation would similarly be very fast too.
‘I’ve reached this stage. It could be said that I have fully condensed out the complete Vermillion NIghtmare.’ Xue Ying pondered, ‘After that is the fifth transformation and the sixth transformation… these are meant to dig out all the potential of the Vermillion Nightmare. And beyond that will be the Primal Chaos realm!’
Vermillion Nightmare inheritance.
It was elementary in the first few stages, and what came in the later stages included the “Vermillion Nightmare Eight Transformations”.
The first transformation would be stepping into the Void God realm!
The first three transformations… belonged to the Origin Birth realm.
The middle three transformations… belonged to the Unity realm.
And the seventh and eighth transformations belonged to the Primal Chaos realm.
When one cultivated to the limit, according to the illustration of the inheritance, the cultivator would be considered an expert even amongst Primal Chaos giants. But Xue Ying was still a distance away from the limit. The unknown creator of the Vermillion Nightmare inheritance seemed to have tried creating the ninth transformation too but to no avail.
‘Vermillion Nightmare Eight Transformations. The first six transformations aim dig out all potential of the ‘Vermillion Nightmare’. As for the seventh transformation… it is altering the Vermillion Nightmare from its core, allowing the Vermillion Nightmare to transform.’ Xue Ying revealed a grin, ‘Very good. That is what I am looking forward to.’
A core qualitative transformation.
That was actually altering the composition of the Vermillion Nightmare. The Vermillion Nightmare was strong in two aspects. One was that its natural aura could cause others to unknowingly lose themselves. The other aspect was the natural illusory realm that it contained. Xue Ying was not too satisfied with the illusory realm structure inherent within. He himself was an expert that reached the sixth level Star Pagoda in terms of the Dao of Mirage.
When the potential of this ‘Vermillion Nightmare’ was dug to its limit, it would only reach the fifth level Star Pagoda strength. This was also due to its aura. To an expert like Xue Ying, he could definitely improve the structure of its illusory realm!
As he altered it…
The Vermillion Nightmare would transform accordingly. Once a qualitative transformation happened, it would have stepped into the Primal Chaos realm! Xue Ying’s attainments in the Dao of Mirage had actually touched on the boundaries of the Primal Chaos realm. He vaguely understood what it means to be one.
‘But the ancient cultivation is indeed mysterious.’ Xue Ying praised.
He was merely altering the core illusory realm within the Vermillion Nightmare. As for other structures, they remained unchanged. These were naturally formed when he cultivated the ancient cultivation. The most special part about ancient cultivation… was that it would improve according to his talent. It was unlike the hex cultivation or the laws and profound mysteries system where one could just ponder and comprehend all the way. Because many aspects about ancient cultivation could not be pondered upon.
Like Inquisitive Sky Hall Master and the others, they were able to teleport through an ultra-long distance. They could even scout through a vast distance. The laws and profound mysteries inherent within was something they were unable to understand.
One might be able to alter small sections of the technique, but he could not research on it.
It was the same with Xue Ying. He was only altering the illusory world. As for the fundamental appearance structure of the Vermillion Nightmare, and the aura that it emitted… these were natural ocurring. Because the illusory realm it emitted was vast enough, it would be very beneficial to his soul when Xue Ying cultivated this inheritance. That was the main reason he chose this inheritance.
‘My current soul strength is stronger by 60% than without the ancient cultivation.’ Xue Ying was startled.
His soul became stronger.
Thus, he was able to unleash more Sky Punishment Edges. At this moment, he was able to unleash five of them!
‘Haha, all the precious treasures required have been prepared. There should not be any bottleneck for me to cultivate to the sixth transformation.’ Xue Ying was looking forward to that day because his soul would become much stronger than now. And furthermore, at that moment, he was able to transform the illusory realm world construct within the Vermillion Nightmare. Because he had absolutely dug out all potential of the Vermillion Nightmare, and thus, he would be able to transform the core illusory realm world structure.
‘Time to go back.’
Xue Ying stood up. The void in front warped directly, and Xue Ying took a step and entered.
When he appeared, Xue Ying was already at the Black Fog Sea Monarch residence.
He had deliberately marked down the spatial coordinates of the Daoist Elder cavern-dwelling in Green Peng Sect, so he could directly teleport over! With how strong he was, his cultivation and training would usually harm and create a huge pressure on the cosmos. That was why it would be better to proceed with his training outside in the sacred world! As for when he was comprehending, he could do it back in his hometown cosmos.
“Father.” Dong Bo Yu who was currently cultivating looked up. He saw Xue Ying who stood in midair.
“Properly cultivate. Your mother has already opened her Dao path.” Xue Ying chuckled.
Even after Jing Qiu transcended, the energy from the Scarlet Cloud Pomegranate Core could still be maintained for more than 100 million years. She had already opened the ‘Dao of Time-Space’ just 100,000 years after she transcended. As she was cultivating under a state of ultra-comprehension, it was not unexpected for his wife to open her dao. But Xue Ying thought his wife would open a Dao related to frost… and not that of the Dao of Time-Space!
The days of Xue Ying were spent in a carefree manner. He was cultivating and comprehending as and when he wanted. He remained patient and not arrogant on his cultivation. When he had some attainments, he would proceed to the Myriad Ancient Sacred World Green Peng Sect to test out his techniques, or to break through in his ancient cultivation. He would occasionally spend some time accompanying his wife who left closed-door cultivation, and also guided his children and disciples. He would even give public lectures on Daos where Rulers and Paragons would attend.
With how carefree he was, Xue Ying was also spending his time observing the conflict and battles happening within the five great sacred worlds and primal chaos void.
Even though he wanted to remain carefree, several experts in the dark did not wish for him to remain so.
In the Ancient Sacred World.
Within a dark palace hall, Saint Wang Ming stood there in his purple robe. The lakewater further away gradually condensed into a figure.
“Wang Ming, what’s the matter?” This figure formed from water contained silver light flowing on his body. He emitted an unseen pressure. Even though it was an incarnation, Saint Wang Ming felt the threat from him. This was an expert at the ‘limit of Primal Chaos realm’. During the era of primitive Ancient Sacred World, the description of the strength of Primal Chaos giants was slightly blurred. The peak Primal Chaos realm… was an extremely horrifying level. It meant that the cultivator had reached the final realm in certain aspects. This was also the ninth level Star Pagoda strength.
The Star Pagoda level divided the strength of cultivators very accurately. It was considered a universe standard now.
“Master Jia Ming.” Saint Wang Ming was being extremely polite, “I wish to know the current location of the Inner Hall Elder ‘Dong Bo Xue Ying’ of Great Void Heaven Temple. I do hope to seek the help of Master Jia Ming. This is 100 Origin World Rocks.”
Saying that, he obediently handed over the Origin World Rocks!
In the entire Ancient Sacred World, other than the Sacred Master who stood high above everyone, Master Jia Ming was ranked second in terms of his ability to seek traces of a cultivator! This was an extremely horrifying expert, and he could even see the ‘future’. Naturally, it was limited in how far he could see!
“I can try.”
Master Jia Ming lightly nodded.
The entire pitch black palace hall contained an unseen distorted energy. Saint Wang Ming obediently watched on. He knew this was the true body of Master Jia Ming unleashing his secret technique. This was the location where Master Jia Ming cultivated, albeit he would usually only send his incarnations to appear.
“Hua~” There was a blurred scene gradually appearing in midair. It showed the scene of a huge residence.
This blurred figure turned into a hunchbacked old man.
The hunchbacked old man coldly stared back: “Hmph, indeed as I expected. You fools from the Ancient Sacred World still dare to think of scheming against an elder of my Great Void Heaven Temple. Fortunately, I have made my preparations.”
The scene suddenly shattered and dissipated.
The water figure which contained silver light flowing amidst the river had a strand of cold intent in his eyes. He growled: “Tian Yu!”
