Chapter 913: The Request of Monarch Xing Huo
Xue Ying was complaining in his heart. Nevertheless, he still went out of the cavern-dwelling to receive the guest.
“Greetings Monarch.” Xue Ying said. He was clear that even Heaven Weeping Sect Master and the other Primal Chaos giants would have to be respectful to Monarch Xing Huo since the other party could kill ordinary Primal Chaos experts with a single move just like how Xue Ying could slaughter Unity realm experts.
“Elder Dong Bo, there’s no need to be so polite.” It was rare for Monarch Xing Huo to be so courteous. He was known for being overbearing and cruel.
The two entered the courtyard and sat down.
Monarch Xing Huo said with a frown: “This time I have indeed an issue which I have to trouble Elder Dong bo for.”
Xue Ying muttered inwardly.
What kind of identity did you, Monarch Xing Huo, have?
If he was willing, he could easily push his son into a certain holy ground superpower. No matter which holy ground it was, Great Void Heaven Temple, Primogenitor Island, Blade Emperor City or others, they were willing to fawn on Monarch Xing Huo. Why the need to participate in the Star Convention and find him for help? The Star Convention was a publicized convention, and the name register that Xue Ying submitted would be broadcast too.
Xing Huo Xun Yi cultivated for more than 500 billion years! He was still ranked over 3,600 and was the son of Monarch Xing Huo. Regarding potential, he was unquestionably ranked outside the top 1,000. Strictly speaking, he would be ranked even outside the top 5,000 cultivators! If his potential was ranked in the top 1,000, it was barely okay for Xue Ying to push him on to the next round.
But this person was ranked beyond 5,000 taking into account his potential! If Xue Ying were to select Xing Huo Xun Yi, he would undoubtedly suffer from criticism by others, and this was something he was not willing to do.
‘Is it because I am the easiest to be persuaded amongst the five teachers?’ Xue Ying felt helpless. Nevertheless, he did not lose his decorum on the surface.
“I wish for this matter to be kept a secret, Elder Dong Bo since it is a disgraceful ugly affair.” Monarch Xing Huo said.
Xue Ying thought.
You also know that it is disgraceful, and an ugly affair? You still wish for me to not spread it to others? If I were to choose him, it is likely for others to know about the affair anyway.
“Hear me say first.” Monarch Xing Huo’s voice became more muffled, “My son Xun Yi, other than cultivating in the bloodline system, he has cultivated the ancient cultivation as well! After all, I am merely at the Primal Chaos realm, and my son would reach the Unity realm at most if he were to cultivate in just the bloodline system. As a result, he is quite diligent in cultivating the ancient cultivation system as well. He spent just 300 million years to reach the Void God level in the ancient cultivation system.”
“What?” Xue Ying was stunned.
300 million years?
Even if a formidable teacher were guiding him, this speed was insane! Those golden-robed disciples of Great Void Heaven Temple had been stuck at the True God Ruler realm for really long! Even though the laws and profound mysteries system was harder to cultivate, pushing to the Void God level in just 300 million years was too frightening.
“That time, I was really excited since I felt that my son would likely reach the Primal Chaos realm in the future. Haha, both father and son are at the Primal Chaos realm, and that will be a story which would spread far and out.” Monarch Xing Huo laughed at himself, “That time, I did not care about the price, and had traded some treasures for unique one called the Boundary Stone.”
“Boundary Stone?” Xue Ying felt his heart moving.
This was a treasure meant to cultivate in the illusory realm. He wanted to obtain it, yet this unique treasure was too expensive, and it was unique.
“I almost forgot to tell you, but my son specialized in the illusory realm with his ancient cultivation system.” Monarch Xing Huo began carefully describing it, “He relied on the Boundary Stone, allowing his speed of cultivation to soar. He spent just a short 2.6 billion years to enter the Unity realm in the ancient cultivation, yet…”
Xue Ying was carefully listening.
The more he listened, the more dumbstruck he became.
So the other party actually fell in love with a girl within the illusory realm and had become wholly engrossed into it. The two had even become Dao companions.
Hearing the description by Monarch Xing Huo, Xue Ying could imagine how that girl knew she was part of the illusory world and was calmly facing death. But ‘Xing Huo Xun Yi’ was in extreme agony. When the illusory world collapsed, everything within disappeared. Even his true love was no more, causing Xing Huo Xun Yi to turn mad.
“I’ve asked Cosmos Gods before, yet they said how the emotional pain has pervaded into the soul of my son. It is extremely difficult to save him with external strength. He has to depend on himself.” Monarch Xing Huo said, “This time I came to find Elder Dong Bo because I know that you are the most talented person in the illusory realm since the Primitive Ancient Sacred Worl era until now. That is why I wish to ask Elder Dong Bo for help in saving my son.”
He was the strongest talent in the illusory realm since the era of the primitive Ancient Sacred World.
With the status of Monarch Xing Huo, the words he spoke were quite logical too.
Until now, the number of people who could match Xue Ying at the Unity realm in the art of illusory realm could be counted with one’s fingers. But the others were all ancient cultivators, and they depended on their talents! As for Xue Ying, before he had gotten the ‘Vermillion Nightmare inheritance’, he was merely cultivating in the laws and profound mysteries system. He had pushed the Dao of Mirage all the way until his current level, and after obtaining the Vermillion Nightmare inheritance, he had easily altered the inheritance!
Was altering a technique easy?
Why could Xue Ying do it? That’s because the difficulty of reaching the sixth level Star Pagoda strength by relying on the talent of ancient cultivation was vastly different from reaching the sixth level in the Dao of Mirage! The laws and profound mysteries system required one to research in the essence of the operating laws. The cultivator had to completely grasp it. By then, he would be able to create all sorts of absolute art by relying on the Dao of Mirage.
But it was different with the ancient cultivation.
The ancient cultivation did not require one to completely comprehend it. It sufficed if he could display the technique! There was no need to study all profound mysteries behind the technique.
As a result, the laws and profound mysteries system and the hex cultivation system were famous for being difficult to train in. But they were also renowned for being powerful. It was usual for those at the Unity realm cultivating in these systems to reach the third level Star Pagoda strength.
As for the ancient cultivation, it depended more on talent and inheritance! The truly heaven-defying ones were really heaven-defying, and the truly weak ones were very weak too.
As a result–
In history, there was only Xue Ying who had researched the illusory realm profound mysteries to this extent at the Unity realm. He had even cultivated for a short period only–at tens of billions of years! Monarch Xing Huo said that he was the strongest talent in history ever since the primitive Ancient Sacred World in the illusory realm was quite logical. If he knew that Xue Ying was about to step into the Primal Chaos realm in his Dao of Mirage, the other party would likely become more excited. Xue Ying’s accomplishment in the Dao of Mirage was distinctly higher than that of Monarch Xing Huo already.
“You are a cultivator of the laws and profound mysteries system, and also specialized in the illusory realm.” Monarch Xing Huo looked at Xue Ying, “I am also in desperate need to seek any ‘doctors’ I can find. I have no other choices, so I have to ask if Elder Dong Bo has any idea.”
Xue Ying softly shook his head, “How can it be so casually used? Even though it allows the cultivator to research in different types of illusory realms with the user being the master of the illusory realm, allowing him to study all relevant laws. This is exceptionally helpful to cultivation. But! The stronger the illusory realm, the more real it would be. And Xing Huo Xun Yi personally has not accumulated enough experiences in this aspect. Even though he can easily escape from the illusory realm for he is the master, it is possible that he might just become immersed in it over time. And once that happens, it will be troublesome.”
If an enemy fell into the illusory realm, that would be for eternal, and his life and death would be determined by other people.
But being the master of the illusory realm, if he fell into the realm personally, it would affect his heart realm really significantly. The power of the heart realm… was mysterious. A cultivator who believed that he was dead in his heart would really cause his soul to crumble and die. This was the same with relationships. If one fell for another party in the illusory realm, if someone knew about it and forced the other party awake, it was fine.
But if nobody was there to hinder the user like Xing Huo Xun Yi, then he would just fall deeper and deeper into it. It was possible for him to maintain this state until the entire illusory realm entered the great apocalypse.
“I am too confident of my son.” Monarch Xing Huo felt regretful.
He knew too few about the training of illusory realm. Also, it was because he personally treated himself ruthlessly. He felt that to accomplish something huge, he had to be ruthless with his son too!
“Is there any methods though?” Monarch Xing Huo asked.
“No other ways. I’ve never encountered such a situation before.” Xue Ying shook his head. He had a Dao companion himself, and it was considered good already if he did not turn mad should he encounter a similar severer emotional situation like Xing Huo Xun Yi.
“Let’s just try.” Monarch Xing Huo added.
He was genuinely desperate to seek a doctor. Even though he had attempted seeking for help many times–he had even asked those who were extremely powerful–from his opinion, Xue Ying was the greatest genius in history on the illusory realm. If his Dao of Mirage had reached the Primal Chaos realm, then Xue Ying would be the only Dao of Mirage, laws and profound mysteries system Primal Chaos giant. His understanding of the illusory realm would be much deeper.
“No matter what, you should meet up with him and see if there are any methods you could employ.” Monarch Xing Huo said.
Xue Ying could only nod.
For Monarch Xing Huo to ask him to help his son, what else could Xue Ying do?
“Alright. Let Xing Huo Xun Yi hurry over. I’ll have a good chat with him. I am not certain, though I will try my best.” Xue Ying said.
“I’ll have to trouble you then.” Monarch Xing Huo was being incredibly polite.
He had already prepared himself mentally. Even if Xue Ying could not help him this time, he would wait until Xue Ying reached higher attainment in the Dao of Mirage in the future before asking for his help. Naturally, he had to maintain a good relationship with the other party.
As for entering the holy ground?
Monarch Xing Huo did not really care. What he hoped most was for his son to recover from his emotional wound, and to metamorphose and soar to the sky! That was a day he dreamed of seeing.
