Chapter 895: Imperial Dragon
“Four inheritances?” Xue Ying felt puzzled.
Black Emperor nodded: “That time when I first acquired this unique inheritance, it was made of four individual inheritances. They complement one another, allowing one to obtain unfathomable strength! I’ve yet to cultivate all four inheritances to grand perfection, yet I am able to become so strong. The moment I reach perfection… that would be when I step into the final realm. This time I came to find you so as to determine if you have the talent and comprehension ability to cultivate this technique. Now that I affirmed your potential, I am certainly willing to impart another part of the inheritance to you.”
“It isn’t that I am petty! But learning any of these four inheritances is very difficult. Furthermore, these inheritances focus on different directions. For you to succeed in cultivating the “Vermillion Nightmare Inheritance” does not mean you would succeed in learning others. It’ll be better for you to concentrate on learning one inheritance at a time.”
“If you were able to reach a profound realm in these two inheritances, you could find me again, and I’ll impart to you the third inheritance.” Black Emperor said.
Xue Ying listened before replying, “The fact that senior is willing to impart the inheritance shows your benevolence.”
The other party did not ask anything from him. He was simply imparting the inheritances to Xue Ying.
That was indeed benevolence!
“Hahaha…” Black Emperor shook his head, “This is also because I have been trapped at the final bottleneck for far too long, and am losing confidence in myself. That is why I hope for someone to attain what I could not succeed in this lineage of mine.”
He indeed did not have any requests.
Because it was not needed! With his current identity, was he lacking treasures? Did he lack backing? He wasn’t! It was merely an ambition of his since he was clear how unique this lineage of inheritance was. It should not be weaker than the World Ancestor lineage because they had once obtained an excellent opportunity of which they chose different paths at that time.
“Other than the “Vermillion Nightmare Inheritance”, the other three inheritances are known as the “Nine Serpents Inheritance”, the “Imperial Dragon Inheritance”, and the “Mountainous Beast Inheritance”.” Black Emperor lightly pointed before causing streams of light to fly towards Xue Ying.
Xue Ying’s law domain was able to deduce that these streams of light contained just information. He did not obstruct them and took the initiative to perceive them.
“You should have some understanding of the other three inheritances. Select one yourself.” Black Emperor said.
Only after Xue Ying read through the introductions of the other three inheritances did he become genuinely astonished. That time he chose the Vermillion Nightmare inheritance because it was able to strengthen his soul. He did not regard other aspects of the technique. As for the inner ‘illusory world structure’, he felt that it was too ordinary since he had learned the “Plate Ripple Diagram”, the “13 Apocalyptic Swords” and the “Dark World”. Any of them were able to reach the sixth level Star Pagoda strength.
That was why he felt slightly disdainful of the Vermillion Nightmare inheritance.
After that, he relied on his accomplishments in the Dao of Mirage and took the initiative to alter the Vermillion Nightmare inheritance at the Unity realm, allowing it to improve despite its original form being at the fifth level Star Pagoda strength! Xue Ying felt quite accomplished in his heart after doing so.
‘So it seems…’
‘These four inheritances are actually one entity.’
Xue Ying was dumbstruck.
This was truly a perfect inheritance!
If he cultivated in all four inheritances, he would be able to attain the seventh level Star Pagoda combat strength at the Unity realm. More importantly, any of those Unity experts in the history of the six great holy grounds who had reached the seventh level Star Pagoda strength were usually extremely strong in certain aspects! They would be weak in a few areas. Like Xue Ying, he was extremely strong in terms of offense.
But it was different for this ancient inheritance!
Learning all four inheritances and one would no longer have any flaws!
His soul would be strong! His lifeforce would be strong! His combat strength would be strong! His physical strength would be strong! And even his escaping techniques would be strong too!
It was simply perfect!
“It is a perfect inheritance.” Xue Ying murmured.
Black Emperor heard him speak from the side and could not help but feel a strand of bitterness rising deep in his heart.
That time he chose this path because of this point. The World Ancestor decided to select another seemingly ordinary path.
“It is too perfect.” Xue Ying did not dare believe that such an ancient inheritance exists. He cultivated the Dao of Mirage, Dao of Ripple and Dao of Slaughter. He also cultivated the Voidwalker system! He had even gotten the technique of ultra-long distance teleportation and was considered to have many techniques. But he was still far from reaching perfection in everything.
And each of these four inheritances had a focus area.
The moment he fused them together, there would even be a qualitative transformation.
A perfect fleshy body! A perfect soul! A perfect combative style!
‘There is actually such an inheritance? I’ve never heard of it despite reading through so many books in the Great Void Heaven Temple.’ Xue Ying thought, ‘Is this an ancient cultivation? For the Sacred Master to become the strongest expert amongst the final realm existences and become unparalleled, is it because he had gotten a similar ancient cultivation inheritance that might be stronger?’
“The more perfect it is, the harder it’ll be to cultivate them.” Black Emperor said, “Brat, have you chosen?”
“I’ve chosen.” Xue Ying nodded, “I shall select the “Imperial Dragon Inheritance”.”
The “Nine Serpents Inheritance” contained ultra-strong life energy and was geared towards the life aspect.
As for the “Mountainous Beast Inheritance”, it contained an extreme defense and was geared towards the world aspect.
These were not what he specialized in.
The “Imperial Dragon Inheritance” was geared towards slaughter!
And the “Vermillion Nightmare Inheritance” was on the illusory realm. It pertained to his soul. WIth the four great inheritances fusing as one, there were many other mystical effects such as allowing him to become better at escaping, to have a more powerful domain… that was why Xue Ying felt dumbstruck at how perfect this inheritance was. The person who could create this inheritance should have so many techniques that far transcended his imaginations. It seemed that those ranked at the front of final realm existences should have an unfathomable strength.
The Void Primogenitor was merely at the third level, but the Voidwalker system was quite mystical already. It was outstanding in escaping and surviving.
Even though Monarch Nine Cloud had died, his attainments in the void were beyond that of the Void Primogenitor! He had yet to complete the four-diagrams absolute art, and Xue Ying understood how amazing it was already currently.
The more he understood, the more he realized how frightening those standing at the peak were.
‘There is still him.’ Xue Ying thought of another person–Luo City Lord!
The other Primal Chaos experts could not escape with their lives in front of final realm existences!
Only Luo City Lord who was at the Primal Chaos realm contained a power that could suppress an absolute majority of other final realm existences including the laws and profound mysteries system Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster, Void Primogenitor… one had to know that Forefather Tian Yu had the reliance of a cosmos in his body. Even so, he could not defeat Luo City Lord! Luo City Lord’s realm was so extraordinary that it could not be conceived.
But it seemed he had violated certain unknown taboo that prevented him from being able to break through to the Cosmos God realm.
‘The more I cultivate, the more I realized how small I am.’ Xue Ying thought.
And Black Emperor had just brought out two books before placing them in front of Xue Ying. One was a fiery-red book which had vaguely formed an illusory realm on the surrounding of the book. The other was a book containing a black killing aura. The book was faintly emitting a roar of fury that was full of killing intent.
He had gotten the ninth transformation of the “Vermillion Nightmare Inheritance”, and the complete book of the “Imperial Dragon Inheritance”. Only then did Black Emperor left.
In the following period, Xue Ying had also collected various treasures via the Seven Star Oceanic Pavilion required to cultivate the “Imperial Dragon Inheritance”. By then, he had practically finished spending what he gained from Monarch Nine Cloud’s treasure cove. Fortunately, he had some earnings after killing the great commander of Chief Devil Cliff and several other experts.
‘It indeed feels smooth.’
Xue Ying felt truly carefree as he cultivated the “Imperial Dragon Inheritance”.
Because this time, he had deliberately chosen an inheritance geared towards slaughter. Since his attainments in the Dao of Slaughter was high, and he just lacked a gap before being able to unleash the Apocalyptic Sixth Sword, researching the “Imperial Dragon Inheritance” was naturally smooth-sailing for him. Nevertheless, he spent a little longer as compared to the time he used to comprehend the “Vermillion Nightmare Inheritance”–about eight million years before attaining the Unity realm in the “Imperial Dragon Inheritance”.
But after cultivating this inheritance, Xue Ying did not find it helpful in improving his overall combat strength.
Within the cultivation room.
Xue Ying sat there cross-legged. There was a black-scaled mutated beast illusion that formed behind him. Its pair of rear clawed-hoofs supported its entire body, and its pair of enormous front claws were emitting a savage and heaven-shaking aura… and at this moment, black scales were forming on the palms of Xue Ying. They were similarly emitting a slaughter aura.
‘My hands might be strong, but they can’t triumph over my Sky Punishment Edges.’ Xue Ying sighed, ‘Still, this Imperial Dragon inheritance tempers my body, strengthening even my Voidwalker body by a few times.’
With a thought.
His body was covered in a layer of black scales. It was like a layer of armor! Only his face remained its original appearance.
‘There is still a protective armor, and this protective armor is comparable to lower-grade Void God weapons.’ Xue Ying slightly nodded. Even though it did not improve his offensive strength, his physical strength had become stronger, and the defense of the armor was quite formidable. It’s a pity that he could not cultivate all four inheritances to an extremely high realm and fuse them together. Only that newly-emerged body could be called terrifying! By then, he should be able to withstand against the offense of Primal Chaos giants.
‘Time for me to go out.’
‘The second commander ‘Monarch Qi Hu’ of the Chief Devil Cliff is still alive. It is time for me to kill him and complete my promise.’ Xue Ying calmly thought. After which, he stealthily left the Green Peng Sect.
