Chapter 901: Weakness
The crimson-robed old man and the 12 black-robed men lying on the ground were anxiously looking forward to being saved by their master. They wanted to see this white-robed expert beg for mercy in regret too!
“Dong Bo Xue Ying.”
Wicked-Eyed Palace Master stepped on the void. He stared at Xue Ying from afar. A sinister aura emanated from his body which billowed in all directions, “This is the Myriad Ancient Sacred World. You are from the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World, yet you dare to be so unbridled here in the Myriad Ancient Sacred World? And even dare to disrupt my affair? You are quite daring.”
“The Myriad Ancient Sacred World is split into two. This is the region under World Ancestor and not Ancestor Sorcerer. Do you think you are qualified to say these?” Xue Ying shook his head.
“Hmph. Do you think I do not dare to kill you because you are an Inner Hall Elder from the Great Void Heaven Temple?” Wicked-Eyed Palace Master coldly laughed, “Right, I will not kill you. I can pardon you the crime of dying, but I will just take away all your treasures before allowing you to have a taste of some punishments which I have researched. In the end, I will send you completely intact to the Great Void Heaven Temple. I believe that the Great Void Heaven Temple will have nothing to say about this.”
“You seem to be very confident.” Xue Ying nodded, “Let me see if you have the ability to do so. Oh, I should eliminate them first. There is no reason for them to live since you are here.”
The moment he finished speaking…
“Pu pu pu…”
The red-robed old man and 12 black-robed men all opened their eyes wide in dread. Closely following that, their aura turned dark, and their souls that were sealed soon dissipated. The remnant energy from the Plate Ripple Diagram on their bodies even caused them to turn into powder.
The pupils of Wicked-Eyed Palace Master dilated as he saw this. His expression became even more savage. He glared at Xue Ying, letting out sinister laughter: “Very good. Very good. It seems that a young brat who has just learned the absolute art of Dark World Master dares to act so rampantly in front of me. I’ll let you know… hex cultivation isn’t something those Destruction Devils from the Star Pagoda could compete with.”
“Hua hua hua.”
The eyes of the Wicked-Eyed Palace Master abruptly emitted a terrifying suppression. His eyes shot out two black streams. If one carefully scrutinized them, he would discover that within these two black streams contained tiny black-carapaced insects. There were a total of 100 black-carapaced that flew out of the eyes of Wicked-Eyed Palace Master towards Xue Ying.
Closely following that, the body of Wicked-Eyed Palace Master suddenly expanded. He grew out six arms, and his skin turned gray. There were even all sorts of weird ‘eye’ diagrams on his naked gray skin. These diagrams of ‘eye’ were all over his body, and they emitted a black savage aura which the naked eyes could see.
“Die.” Wicked-Eyed Palace Master moved, turning into a stream of light as he charged at Xue Ying.
More than 100 black insects also charged forward in front of Wicked-Eyed Palace Master. Nevertheless, Xue Ying was calmly watching–he did not defend himself at all.
Wicked-Eyed Palace Master began to doubt himself after seeing this.
Initially, he had made other preparations meant to deal against Xue Ying. Even though he might be arrogant on the surface, deep in his heart, he was solemn since Xue Ying’s ‘Sky Punishment Edge’ was genuinely powerful! But the other party did not seem to do anything against his incoming assault. That made Wicked-Eyed Palace Master suspect: ‘Too arrogant. Hmph hmph, if he doesn’t try his best during battle, then it’ll be easier for me to win.’
According to the intelligence he collected, he had already long prepared a plan to defeat Xue Ying. From how he sees, Xue Ying might be strong in the offense, but because he was too young, he did not have time to cover his weaknesses, and his body was much weaker. This weakness in his body was present when compared to others like Wicked-Eyed Palace Master, Black Chief Devil, and other experts.
Before cultivating the “Imperial Dragon Inheritance”, just by relying on the augmentation the Voidwalker system had on his body, Xue Ying’s body was indeed his weakness because the Voidwalker system did not have too great of an advantage once it reached the Unity and Primal Chaos realm.
The Voidwalkers had an overwhelming advantage during earlier stages. Once it reached the later stages of cultivation, it was no longer as strong as other systems. Instead, it was the ‘void-ification’ and control towards the void that a Voidwalker excelled in. Even his skills in escaping and survival were very formidable!
But what about his physique?
Usually, it was those who cultivated the ancient cultivation, the strongest warrior system and the hex cultivation system that outshined in this. They could refine their bodies to a horrifying stage. Xue Ying cultivated the “Imperial Dragon Inheritance”, improving it to the sixth level Star Pagoda strength, and naturally, his physical body had also become much stronger. Furthermore, he could even cover himself with a plate of armor that was comparable to the toughness of middle-grade Void God weapons!
The Vermillion Nightmare Inheritance was primarily about the illusory realm. It nourished his soul.
The Imperial Dragon Inheritance was all about slaughter, and it augmented his fleshy body.
‘He isn’t even doing his best during battle. Truly a fool.’ The many eye diagrams on the body of Wicked-Eyed Palace Master gradually lit up.
Closely following a resounding cry, a red aura began spreading in all directions. It naturally covered those insects and Wicked-Eyed Palace Mater who were killing their way over.
“Mn?” The simple-looking old man who was watching the battle from afar became startled. He carefully looked over.
At this moment, there was a fiery-red bird that appeared behind the body of Xue Ying. It spread out its enormous wings and emitted a fiery-red aura.
‘Vermillion Nightmare inheritance? Illusory technique?’ The white-haired simple-looking old man felt his heart relaxing. It was not easy to make an illusory technique heaven-shaking. Trying to use it to deal against experts like Wicked-Eyed Palace Master was even harder, ‘According to my understanding, the Vermillion Nightmare inheritance at the Unity realm could barely affect experts at the fifth level Star Pagoda strength with slightly weaker heart realm.’
Yet the reality was completely different.
Wicked-Eyed Palace Master immediately fell into the illusory realm. He was having a hard time struggling out of it. When he was able to barely struggle out, he would once again be pulled into the illusory realm. Monarch Qi Hu did not have any ability to resist Xue Ying’s Vermillion Nightmare inheritance, and Wicked-Eyed Palace Master was not any superior to Monarch Qi Hu in his heart realm! He was even slightly weaker.
After falling into the illusory realm, he could no longer control those venomous insects since they had no sentience! If they had sentience, it was easy for the enemy to deal against them.
“Chi chi chi~” Countless ripples restricted those venomous insects easily. At the same time, they also restricted Wicked-Eyed Palace Master, sealing his soul.
Closely following that, Xue Ying kept his aura. The god bird Vermillion Nightmare behind his back fused into his body too.
Wicked-Eyed Palace Master was directly thrown onto the grass beside him by Xue Ying. Once he woke up, he widened his eyes in disbelief.
I was really defeated just like this? There were many other methods I have yet to display! I had yet to let this Xue Ying have a taste of my hex poison, but I was defeated already?
“Battle isn’t about seeing the strongest aspect. It is also about the weakness of the other party.” Xue Ying mocked, “To me, your heart realm is your weakness!”
Strictly speaking, the heart realm of Wicked-Eyed Palace Master was not really a weakness of his. It was considered average amongst fifth level Star Pagoda experts. But facing against Xue Ying who had great talent in the Dao of Mirage, and had improved the Vermillion Nightmare inheritance to the sixth level Star Pagoda strength, he who could not resist against the illusory realm would indeed be weak in his heart realm!
That targeted the other party’s soul directly. No matter how many techniques you had, or how strong your fleshy body was, or how many killing moves you had, if you could not resist against the illusory realm, your life and death would be controlled by Xue Ying.
“Illusory technique, how can it be.” Wicked-Eyed Palace Master did not even dare believe it that he would be defeated under the illusory technique. And the other party was similarly at the Unity realm too.
“Admirable, admirable.” The distant white-haired simple-looking old man said, “The Vermillion Nightmare inheritance shouldn’t be so strong at the Unity realm. You could actually improve the power of the Vermillion Nightmare inheritance, and talking about illusory techniques… you should be the first amongst the Unity realm experts across the five great sacred worlds and primal chaos void.”
Unity realm experts at the sixth level Star Pagoda…
Were originally very few in number.
Before the rise of Xue Ying, there was not a single one at this level within the Great Void Heaven Temple of this generation. Currently, adding up all the sixth level Star Pagoda Unity realm experts across the five great sacred worlds and the primal chaos void, there were not more than 10 of them to his knowledge! Xue Ying was superbly strong in his illusory realm across them. Indeed, he was qualified to be ranked first in his illusory technique amongst Unity realm experts.
“In front of Thunder Pagoda Master, this minor technique isn’t worth mentioning.” Xue Ying chuckled.
Thunder Pagoda Master.
His true name was ‘Lei Yan’ and was more famous than Xue Ying across the five great sacred worlds and primal chaos void. There were a total of five sixth level Star Pagoda experts including Xue Ying within the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World, the Eastern Unicorn Sacred World, and the Myriad Ancient Sacred World. And Lei Yan was publicly acknowledged the strongest Unity realm expert for a long time within these three great sacred worlds. He had fought with Primal Chaos giants before, and it had long proven his strength.
“This isn’t any minor technique. Even I do not have the time to save this junior disciple brother of mine.” Thunder Pagoda Master shook his head, “But my junior disciple brother is also under the sect of Ancestor Sorcerer. So Elder Dong Bo can’t kill him.”
“I naturally know that.” Xue Ying nodded.
There were agreements within the three great sacred worlds as they teamed up against the two great religions. Even if the higher levels of the superpowers within the three great sacred worlds commit a crime, they could not be directly killed. Instead, they would be punished by fighting against the two great religions.
Others did not dare to directly kill Xue Ying, and Xue Ying did not dare to kill this Wicked-Eyed Palace Master too.
If he really did that…
It would be violating against the hidden rules of the three great sacred worlds, and the Great Void Heaven Temple could not protect him. He would have to die as well! Xue Ying was not that foolish.
“I will not kill him. Just like what he said.” Xue Ying grinned, “I can pardon you the crime of dying, but I will just take away all your treasures before allowing you to have a taste of some punishments by the my Great Void Heaven Temple, before sending you completely intact.”
