Chapter 929: Public Dao Lecture
If he did not accept him as disciple directly after exiting from closed-door cultivation, Xing Huo Xun Yi would likely take the initiative to come and request for him to be his teacher once news spread! By then, things would be awkward since other holy grounds had taken action to invite him. Even Heart Imitation Religious Master had gone personally to ask Xing Huo Xun Yi if he wanted to become his disciple. If Xue Ying were to wait like a boss for Xing Huo Xun Yi to run over to his place, then would this not be slapping the faces of Heart Imitation Religious Master and the others?
He had to come over just like other holy grounds so that nobody would babble about Xing Huo Xun Yi’s decision of joining the Great Void Heaven Temple.
“Xun Yi this brat is too rude and impetuous. He has given you a hard time, Elder Dong Bo.” Monarch Xing Huo said.
“It is a minor matter.” Xue Ying was quite casual about it. He then began asking Xing Huo Xun Yi about his cultivation these few years. Both teacher and disciple started discussing the Dao of Mirage.
Monarch Xing Huo was inwardly startled as he watched from the side.
If it were any other Unity cultivators, they would not dare accept Xing Huo Xun Yi as a disciple after he had rejected Heart Imitation Religious Master. But Xue Ying had calmly received him. He wasn’t excited or nervous. Instead, he treated it like an ordinary matter.
For him to be so calm, there were two reasons. One, he was madly suppressing his arrogance in his heart or two, he had the qualifications to do so!
‘This Elder Dong Bo doesn’t seem like someone arrogant. Then it should be because he has the confidence. Is he already confident of stepping into the Primal Chaos realm?’ Monarch Xing Huo made his guesses, ‘If he could break through to the Primal Chaos realm in such a short period, that’ll be amazing. How long has he cultivated for?’
But what he did not know was that Xue Ying had reached the seventh level Star Pagoda strength at the Unity realm. As a result, he had no difficulty of entering the Primal Chaos realm. Not long later, Xue Ying would reach the peak amongst those at the Primal Chaos realm. Even though he was still weaker than ninth level cultivators like Monarch Xing Huo and the others, the gap would not be too big.
Xue Ying took the initiative to accept Xing Huo Xun Yi as a disciple, and Xing Huo Xun Yi had agreed to join the Great Void Heaven Temple, taking Xue Ying as his teacher. This news had spread out as well.
“He has really become the disciple of that Unity brat.”
“This Xing Huo Xun Yi, I really do not know how he thinks. He chose not to become a disciple of Heart Imitation Religious Master, and would rather become a disciple of a Unity cultivator.”
Cang Qiong Tian Yu and the other top five cultivators were filled with envy and jealousy because Heart Imitation Religious Master did not ask if they wanted to become his disciple. Even as they entered the six great holy grounds, Heart Imitation Religious Master had to accept them if they wanted to become his disciple!
In the blink of an eye.
It was the final segment of the Star Convention. Many cultivators poured in from various places. This time, the number of cultivators who came was way more than those who participated at the start! Because today was a day specially prepared for all of them–the ‘Public Dao Lecture’. Many ordinary cultivators would hardly have the chance of getting guidance by someone at the level of the teachers of the convention.
For them to listen to the teachers lecturing about the Dao was a huge opportunity! It might possibly give them inspirations, allowing the True Gods to break through to Void Gods, and those at the Origin Birth realm to enter the Unity realm!
“Hong long long~”
There were a total of ten huge names appearing beside the Star Pagoda. They were the ten disciples chosen in this Star Convention and could join any holy grounds they wanted. Furthermore, they would become core members of the holy grounds.
On the huge battle platform with a diameter of 50,000 kilometers, Xing Huo Xun Yi and the other nine were standing side by side.
“The ten of you may make your decision.” Heart Imitation Religious Master said from the high platform.
“I am willing to join the Great Void Heaven Temple.”
“I am willing to join the Blade Emperor City.”
“I am willing to join the Void God Palace.”
“I am willing to join the Blade Emperor City.”
Many cultivators were watching from afar with jealousy. Xing Huo Xun Yi and the other nine cultivators were reporting their choices, of which three of them had already received an invitation before this. Nevertheless, it was a procedure of the Star Convention for them to publicly announce where they would be joining.
“Sou sou sou…” The ten of them turned into streams of light as they flew onto the high platform. They would stand behind the teachers of the convention whom they chose accordingly.
Only Xing Huo Xun Yi stood behind Xue Ying.
As for General Heaven Light, there were three people behind him, including Cang Qiong Tian Yun. Being the strongest holy ground out of the six, most cultivators would join them during the Star Convention. It was typical for three out of ten to join them. There were even extreme cases where five had chosen to join the Blade Emperor City.
Behind General Hatchet Palace Master were three people. Clearly, the influential power of General Hatchet Palace Master was tremendous this time when he personally came.
There was just a single person behind Violet Slaughter Island Master.
And there were two behind Five Luster Serpent Ancestor. Those two were void creatures; void creatures would usually choose to join the Void God Palace!
As for Star City, none chose to join them! This was the most unique holy ground amongst the six since they would usually not send any teachers to the convention. As such, there were only five teachers in total! Even if someone chose to join the Star City, they would regret it since there were too few experts within the Star City, and it was hard for them to get proper guidance. Trying to obtain the help of the legendary Luo City Lord was practically an extravagant hope.
“Five of you.”
Heart Imitation Religious Master looked towards General Hatchet Palace Master and the other four, “The next segment will belong to you all as you lecture about Dao. Once the lectures finish, the convention will end. The previous competition held during this convention was between talented cultivators! And this public lecture about Dao… is desired by many ordinary cultivators. Everyone must do your job properly. According to past experience, each Dao lecture will last more than three days.”
“Mn.” General Hatchet Palace Master nodded.
“That is natural.” General Heaven Light nodded.
Violet Slaughter Island Master, Five Luster Serpent Ancestor, and Xue Ying had made their preparations.
“Then shall we start with Elder Dong Bo?” Heart Imitation Religious Master said.
Xue Ying chuckled and stood up.
It was reasonable.
The order of public lecture was based on the combat strength of the teachers. The strongest one, General Hatchet Palace Master, would naturally be the last! Existences of the ninth level Star Pagoda strength would usually lecture about Daos that directly led all the way to the Cosmos God level. And since there was Xue Ying at the Unity realm, he would naturally be the first to lecture.
“Hu.” After Xue Ying stood, his figure flashed and appeared in midair. After which, he walked step by step onto the battle platform.
At this moment.
The gazes of many cultivators landed on the figure of Xue Ying.
“I do want to see how capable this Dong Bo Xue Ying is.”
“Xing Huo Xun Yi isn’t willing to become a disciple of Heart Imitation Religious Master, and instead chose to take him as his teacher?”
Many Primal Chaos giants who were located above were prepared to listen attentively. Many cultivators had even held their breaths as they paid attention.
Xue Ying was garbed in a white robe. He sat down cross-legged, sweeping his gaze across the many cultivators. Xue Ying began: “This time, I’ll be primarily speaking about the Dao on illusory realm and slaughter.”
Xue Ying had not only reached the sixth level of Star Pagoda in his attainments of the Dao of Mirage and Dao of Slaughter but also even fused the slaughter perfectly into the Mirage, forming a technique that reached the seventh level Star Pagoda strength! Thus, Xue Ying was naturally confident in his understanding of these two Daos. Even though strictly speaking, he was most proud of his Dao of Mirage, few cultivators specialized in the illusory realm. As for the ‘slaughter’, it was researched by many cultivators.
After all, fighting and killing was something hard to avoid when adventuring outside.
“Illusory realm, slaughter?”
Many talented cultivators felt their emotions being stirred up. They were really interested in ‘slaughter’! Most of them would want to listen to the lecture on ‘illusory realm’ even though it would cause their heads to ache. Even if they could not grasp it, it would be good for them to at least understand part of it.
Amongst the Primal Chaos giants located above, the thin male ‘Ba Yun Palace Master’ coldly laughed: ‘Slaughter? He dares to talk about slaughter? Very good. By then, don’t blame me for disgracing you.’
Lecturing about Dao was not about one person.
In the process, many cultivators would come and ask Xue Ying regarding their perplexities, and Xue Ying would choose to guide them on parts of it.
There were occasions when experts call into question what the lecturer spoke.
‘I cultivate the Imperial Dragon inheritance which specialized in Slaughter.’ The eyes of Ba Yun Palace Master were filled with coldness. Previously, he was rejected and directly ousted by Xue Ying. Ba Yun Palace Master was not someone with a good temper. During this period, Xue Ying had always been dazzling. Firstly it was Xing Huo Xun Yi who took the first rank. After that, Xing Huo Xun Yi had rejected the other teachers despite them taking the initiative of inviting him over, before accepting Xue Ying as his formal teacher.
Ba Yun Palace Master naturally felt unhappy after seeing how well-regarded Xue Ying was.
And this time, Xue Ying would actually be talking about ‘Slaughter’?
He primarily cultivated the Imperial Dragon inheritance, becoming a Primal Chaos giant from it!
“Hmph hmph hmph.” Ba Yun Palace Master immediately began listening carefully–so much more attentive than any others.
