Chapter 899: Offending Whom?
But Xue Ying was wrong.
The stone mirror actually existed in all sorts of appearances in the past. It landed in the hands of many ancient cultivators and had caused blood to rain. The moment it became too famous or if it had stayed in the hands of an ancient cultivator for too long, World Ancestor would unleash certain techniques making the stone mirror disappear. And after that, It would land in the hands of some other ancient cultivators.
As the stone mirror was passed down, many ancient cultivation inheritances had been created because of it. Many experts actually interacted with the stone mirror–more than half of the Primal Chaos ancient cultivators in Myriad Ancient Sacred World actually used it before! Comparatively, Primal Chaos ancient cultivators outside the Myriad Ancient Sacred World who got it were relatively fewer–about 10%.
Even still, the rate of propagation for this stone mirror was quite horrifying.
‘No matter what, since this opportunity has arrived in my hands, I should properly utilize it to improve my strength. It’ll be better if I could step into the Primal Chaos realm in one fell swoop.’ Xue Ying was looking forward to the day he could step into the Primal Chaos realm since his body and soul would undergo a transformation. His current strength might be comparable to some of the weaker Primal Chaos experts, but he lacked in many aspects still.
For instance, the souls of Primal Chaos experts were far stronger than his! They could easily send their incarnations to other sacred worlds despite placing their true bodies in another.
Xue Ying was a Unity expert. His incarnation could not travel too far from his true body. Once it reached a certain distance, his willpower would no longer be able to maintain the incarnation, causing it to dissipate!
One could easily see the difference from the distance that one could send their incarnations to.
Like ‘Ancestor Devil’, his true body was in the Great Void Heaven Temple. But that time when Xue Ying attacked the base of the Ancient Sacred Religion, Ancestor Devil could directly send his incarnation over after a single voice transmission! This was practically 10-20% the distance of the span of a sacred world. Unity experts could not send their incarnations so far even if they were stronger. They could not even do so at 100 millionths of this distance.
That was the qualitative difference!
The transformation of the soul, and the change of the body. That was what Xue Ying immensely looked forward to.
Walking on the Myriad Ancient Sacred World, seeing an enormous and dark valley that spanned across trillions of kilometers, stepping across many vast lakes, walking across with his fleshy body through the Flame God Mountain…
There were all sorts of unique places here. Xue Ying would observe how the operating laws had shown itself in nature before experiencing the guidance by the stone mirror. Xue Ying’s realm gradually deepened. He had already simplified the Apocalyptic Fifth Sword and cultivated the “Imperial Dragon Inheritance”. In addition to the guidance by the stone mirror, Xue Ying first broke through in the Dao of Slaughter and finally grasped the Apocalyptic Sixth Sword.
Naturally, he had already grasped hold of the Sky Punishment Edge. Thus, learning the Apocalyptic Sixth Sword did not improve his strength at all. It was only his close combat strength that multiplied. He improved the “Imperial Dragon Inheritance” to a stage that matched that of the “Vermillion Nightmare Inheritance”, allowing Xue Ying’s body to become even stronger. The scale on his body had a solid defense, and his palms were abnormally strong.
‘I’ve covered up my weaknesses.’ Xue Ying appreciated this ancient cultivation technique.
He was not anxious.
The Apocalyptic Sixth Sword would eventually come, and breaking through was naturally easy for him. Only stepping into the Primal Chaos realm would be much harder for him! But he had touched the boundaries of the Primal Chaos realm in both the Dao of Mirage and Dao of Slaughter, of which he had accumulated more experiences in the Dao of Mirage.
Within a vast desert in the Myriad Ancient Sacred World, there was an oasis filled with vibrant life.
On the oasis, there was a tribe flourishing there with a population of about several hundred thousand in number. There were weak children amongst them who were Transcendents when they were born. But under the law suppression of the sacred world, they could not run fast. At the same time, they were practically the weakest life forms in the sacred world, and had to depend on the tribe to survive.
It might be possible for an ultra-strong expert to emerge amongst them in the future, but for now, these children required the protection of the tribe.
Within the tribe, there were also powerful warriors. The strongest leader of the tribe was even a ‘Void God Unity realm’ expert! He had painstakingly constructed different arrays to allow the tribe to survive until now.
A huge crimson vessel appeared above the tribe from the void. Many figures flew out immediately from the vessel. Almost all of them were in a black robe. Only the commander who was a thin old man was wearing a crimson gown. His eyes were faintly burning in cold flames. Those who were stared by him would feel a chill deep down their hearts.
“Start moving. Be quick.” The crimson-robed old man coldly ordered.
“Yes.” This group of black-robed subordinates was all at the Unity realm. They practically flashed at the same time before landing in different places of the tribe. All of them brought out a piece of black talisman, and for a moment, these 12 black talismans were activated at the same time. “Hong~” The terrifying array was displaced by the 12 pieces of talisman, causing black clouds to form above the tribe.
As the dark clouds covered the entire sky, it made the tribe people feel a sense of unease.
“Mother, what is happening?” A child was so frightened that he hid in the embrace of his mother. His mother was a World Deity, yet she was similarly nervous and uneasy as she stared at the dark clouds that formed in the sky, “Relax child. Nothing will happen. The tribe master will definitely protect us.”
Nevertheless, the tribe master who was like the god of protection for the entire tribe was also feeling uneasy.
He had already controlled the array of the entire tribe to deal against the incoming invaders, but the other parties moved too quickly. It was almost the next instant when these dark clouds formed.
“I wonder who this senior is. If there is anything we can do, we will definitely not dare to disobey against this senior.” The tribe master announced loudly. His voice crossed through the array and transmitted into the outer world.
“I want all of you to die. Can you not disobey it?” The cold voice reverberated in the world.
The tribe master was stunned.
The countless tribe people felt their hearts trembling too.
“A group of ants.” The cold voice was filled with disdain.
The rolling dark clouds in the sky suddenly descended. The arrays within the tribe were a joke. These dark clouds had easily bypassed the arrays like illusions, enveloping the entire tribe. It invaded into the bodies of every single person, including the only Unity realm expert.
“We can’t move. Why can’t we move!” Everyone within the tribe discovered this point. The energy within their body had been sealed. Even the movement of their bodies was affected. Even though they could still hear with their ears and see with their eyes or move with their mouth, their bodies remained unmoving.
Following that, the rolling dark cloud dissipated completely.
The 12 black-robed men gathered together and said respectfully to that crimson-robed old man: “Sir, everyone has been captured alive.”
“Mn.” The red-robed old man’s thin and skeletal expression looked downwards. He nonchalantly said, “The numbers we captured this time is enough. The Palace Master requires 300,000 living experiments. You all should begin selecting them according to the requests of the Palace Master. As for the remaining ones, lock them up and give them to me. I hope that the remaining few experimental bodies would suffice to help me with cultivating my secret technique.”
“Sir will definitely succeed.”
“Sir, why not let me go capture more living experiment bodies? The more, the better.” A black-robed man was trying to fawn on their master.
The crimson-robed old man looked at him before revealing a grin. Though his grin was frightening: “I’ll first bring all these experimental beings of this tribe back. You bring two other people to capture more.”
As they discussed, they did not keep it under cover. Instead, they were speaking with their voices loudly.
All the people within the tribe might not be able to move, but there were some Void God experts with excellent hearing abilities. They were able to clearly listen to the discussion, causing all their expressions to change the moment they heard ‘experiment bodies’.
“It is the hex cultivation, and a wicked one. They plan to capture us and use us for all sorts of wicked experiments.” The experts within the tribe were terrified. They would rather be killed than to be used as bodies for experiments in wicked hex cultivation. The hex cultivation researched the myriad existences, and naturally, they would also study the body and soul. Of which the wicked cultivators might even treat countless cultivators as experiment materials.
“We are doomed.”
“The tribe is doomed.”
The experts within the tribe who could listen to what the discussion was felt terrified and desperate. They hated the fact that they could not escape. It’s a pity that there was a gap in strength, preventing them to even be qualified in fighting for their lives.
A cold voice sounded.
A white-robed teenager appeared. His expression was filled with fury. He looked at all the tribe people who had been inflicted with the secret technique and those black-robed men and the leading crimson-robed man in the sky.
“Who are you?” The crimson-robed man’s cold eyes were staring at Xue Ying. He coldly mentioned.
“Who is your Palace Master? I would like to know which hex cultivator is so sinister.” Xue Ying said. He had a favorable impression of the hex cultivation because his wife cultivated that, and even his teacher Bloodshed God-Emperor cultivated it!
The crimson-robed old man chuckled after seeing it: “It seems we have encountered someone who wishes to save the weak. Since that’s the case, let’s capture him and offer him to the Palace Master! A Unity realm experiment body is not bad.”
The 12 black-robed men acknowledged the orders immediately.
Xue Ying unleashed his Plate Ripple Diagram domain. The ripples rapidly invaded through the bodies of the black-robed men. These black-robed men were considered the lowest ranking errand men and were only at the first or second level Star Pagoda strength. They were strong only after relying on the talismans bestowed by the Palace Master. That crimson-robed old man might be an expert, but he was merely at the third level Star Pagoda strength! Under the entanglement of the thin ripple strands, all of them were restricted.
The expression of the crimson-robed man shifted significantly. He tried struggling, but could not get out.
Xue Ying coldly looked at him. The 12 black-robed men and the crimson-robed man were entangled. The crimson-robed man was even roaring out: “You have brought yourself a disaster! Do you know who you offended? Ah?”
Xue Ying calmly watched. He was close to the seventh level Star Pagoda strength. Even if terrifying existences like Primal Chaos Hall Master or Black Emperor acted, relying on the treasures given by Forefather Tian Yu worth several thousand Origin World Rocks would give him the ability to withstand for a moment or two. By then, he would have long escaped using his ultra-long distance teleportation! As for those who were not at the level of Black Emperor, he had no need to even worry.
Xue Ying did not believe that the other party was a Cosmos God.
Because there were only two within the entire Myriad Ancient Sacred World–Ancestor Sorcerer and World Ancestor!
“You are seeking death.” The crimson-robed man was becoming madder. He roared, “Hurry up and let us off. I have already reported to the Palace Master. When he is here, it’ll be too late even if you were to regret. By then, you would be begging to die!”
“Oh? It seems your Palace Master is quite capable of making me beg to die?” Xue Ying coldly sneered.
