Chapter 932: Capturing the Attention of Others
On the battle platform.
Xue Ying had suddenly dissipated all seven Destruction Flowers, causing Ba Yun Palace Master who had been trapped to turn absentminded for a while. Initially, the world seen from inside the translucent black petals were blurred, but now, the world became clear. The white-robed teenager stood afar, saying out: “Ba Yun Palace Master, do you want to continue validating my theory?” His voice warmly sounded by the ears of Ba Yun Palace Master.
Ba Yun Palace Master looked at Xue Ying with complex emotions. He then turned around and flew back as a stream of light to the high platform. He went back to his own seat and sat down without letting out a sound.
He was very clear…
There might be very few Primal Chaos giants across the five great sacred worlds and the vast primal chaos void. But adding everyone, there were quite a few of them too. There were 12 in the Great Void Heaven Temple, and the foundation of both Primogenitor Island and Jade Light Sacred Territory were not any worse off than the Great Void Heaven Temple. Many other Primal Chaos existences did not join the holy grounds too. A simple calculation totaled to close to a hundred Primal Chaos existences in just Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World, and this was a sacred world on an equal level with Eastern Unicorn Sacred World and Ancestor Mother World. The Myriad Ancient Sacred World was even stronger than them, with the Ancient Sacred World being the biggest and strongest.
Furthermore, due to many wars that occurred in the past, there had been many cases of sacred worlds shattering apart. Many dejected Primal Chaos giants decided to disperse and live in the primal chaos void from then on. There were even a few Cosmos Gods who also choose to stay across the primal chaos void.
As a result, Primal Chaos giants had differing statuses too.
Just being at the Primal Chaos realm with a sixth level Star Pagoda strength would make others look down upon you. This was the lowest of the lowest level, and most at this level was not too willing to go out. They would either live in seclusion or become an overlord of some desolate area.
Those at the seventh level like Ba Yun Palace Master and Clear Song Island Master were the most commonly seen. More than half the Primal Chaos existences were at this level. Those with a slightly deeper foundation like Heaven Weeping Sect Master was considered to be at the peak of the seventh level. Overall speaking, those at this level were not bad. They could at least travel to different places without being discriminated.
Nevertheless, only after reaching the eighth level would one becoming an outstanding expert. There were much fewer of them at this level, and all of them were hugely respected. Five Luster Serpent Ancestor, Violet Slaughter Island Master, General Heaven Light, and Ancestor Devil were all at this level. Even Cosmos Gods felt that they were alright choices in representing their holy grounds as teachers of the Star Convention this time.
Naturally, there were some who were very powerful like Inquisitive Sky Hall Master and Great Emperor Nine Dragon who were peak eighth level existences. Ancestor Devil once challenged Inquisitive Sky Hall Master and was easily defeated.
The ninth level? Their strength had already reached the Cosmos God level. They were able to survive when facing most Cosmos Gods, and Cosmos Gods would treat them equally.
‘He is at the seventh level despite being in the Unity realm.’ Ba Yun Palace Master felt jealousy and envious in his heart, ‘This Dong Bo Xue Ying can easily reach the peak of the eighth level after stepping into the Primal Chaos realm. It is highly possible for him to reach the ninth level too.’
In history, there were only eight of such existences previously, with seven reaching the ninth level. Naturally, there were some who had fallen, and some who had become Cosmos Gods.
‘This time, he has truly become famous across the primal chaos void. Many cultivators will remember his name. As for I, I have instead become his stepping stone.’ Ba Yun Palace Master felt his heart being bitten. But he did not have the slightest of thoughts of becoming enemies with the other party since the gap was too huge. Those at the peak eighth level could easily kill the ordinary seventh level existences.
Xue Ying watched as Ba Yun Palace Master retreated without saying a word. After that, voices could be heard by his ears.
“Elder Dong Bo, congratulations for stepping into the seventh level at the Unity realm. I really look forward to when you step into the ninth level Primal Chaos realm.”
“Elder Dong Bo is indeed amazing. You have not only stepped into the seventh level, but you are also even capable of suppressing Ba Yun Palace Master. Admirable.”
“I am actually fortunate enough to see the battle that made history. Really lucky of me.”
Many Primal Chaos giants transmitted their voices over.
They were extremely passionate. Some had even placed their postures lower as if they were willing to lower their heads when facing Xue Ying! Those at the Primal Chaos realm similarly had all sorts of trials and crises. They were extremely willing to befriend Xue Ying. Before this, some looked down upon Xue Ying and were too lazy to talk to him.
They originally reckoned that Xue Ying was on a different level–a lower level than them–and felt that it was possible for Xue Ying to get stuck at the Unity realm forever.
But clearly, things were no longer the same.
Furthermore, the majority of these Primal Chaos giants were only at the seventh level; they were not any stronger than Ba Yun Palace Master.
“I have to continue my Dao lecture now, and I do hope to seek everyone’s understanding in this.” Xue Ying replied.
He then turned back to the cultivators below.
Many of them were already excited. A Unity realm existence actually directly suppressed someone at the Primal Chaos realm? Some of those who were more experienced had begun explaining to their friends. Many of them understood that reaching the seventh level at the Unity realm was something miraculous.
“I will be resuming my Dao lecture.” Xue Ying’s voice transmitted across the ears of all the cultivators. At the same time, he had teleported the 300 Unity realm cultivators up.
“Hu hu hu…”
All 300 Unity cultivators landed on the battle platform. They were extremely delighted since they were chosen and could consult a Unity realm seventh level existence. It could be said that with Xue Ying being someone who cultivated the laws and profound mysteries system should be the person with the best understanding of the Unity realm amongst those present in the place.
“Senior Dong Bo.” The 300 Unity realm existences bowed respectfully. This was respect for their senior.
“One by one.” Xue Ying began guiding them.
It was not only the many cultivators below or the Primal Chaos giants above, even Heart Imitation Religious Master, Monarch Xing Huo, General Hatchet Palace Master, and others were carefully listening.
After a total of 18 hours, Xue Ying finally finished guiding all 300 Unity realm cultivators.
Xue Ying then controlled the void to send all 300 back down.
“And now, I end my Dao lecture. It is time for other teachers to take the stage.” Xue Ying announced with a smile. He then turned into a stream of light and flew up to the high platform back to his original seat.
The teachers would give their Dao lecture accordingly.
General Heaven Light stood up next. He glanced at Xue Ying by the side. In the past, he did not care about hiding his feelings since his superiority over those at the Unity realm was rooted in his bones. He felt that for someone to be standing on an equal level with him yet be at the Unity realm was a humiliation to him. But now, there was a rare smile. He had even smiled at Xue Ying, greatly horrifying Xue Ying.
This General Heaven Light was bald. His entire figure emitted a dim golden light. For his attitude to have such a massive transformation and smile at him was something Xue Ying could not adapt to temporarily.
General Heaven Light chuckled and announced: “Elder Dong Bo’s Dao lecture has given me a huge pressure. My lecture of the Dao isn’t up to the standard of Elder Dong Bo’s, but I’ll still try my best.” His voice reverberated across the entire ground.
“General Heaven Light has overpraised me.” Xue Ying replied.
“It isn’t overpraising you. I am merely speaking the truth. There aren’t many under the Primal Chaos realm who dares to say they can lecture about the Dao as good as Elder Dong Bo.” General Heaven Light chuckled. He then took a step and appeared on the battle platform below. With a gray robe over him, he sat on the battle platform. His entire figure was emitting a dim golden light, and he started lecturing about Dao with his loud majestic voice.
The five teachers of convention lectured about Dao successively: Xue Ying, General Heaven Light, Five Luster Serpent Ancestor, Violet Slaughter Island Master and finally, General Hatchet Palace Master.
And Xue Ying who was seated at the high platform did not relax at all despite being able to do so.
It was fine for the Primal Chaos existences to transmit their voices to each other.
But now, experts from all across the three great sacred worlds reaching the Primal Chaos realm had begun sending transmissions to him. Some had even sent transmissions through the Seven Star Oceanic Pavilion, and would at least congratulate him once! Clearly, his status had become higher. The majority of those Primal Chaos giants did not lack in manners, and Xue Ying would respond with courtesy, acknowledging them simply. Nevertheless, those with a really high status like the hall masters in his Great Void Heaven Temple were people he had to take seriously.
Xue Ying spent nine days speaking about the Dao, and the other Primal Chaos existences spent less than that–most spent only five to six days. As for General Hatchet Palace Master, he had kept it to the minimum three days.
It was primarily those who studied the laws and profound mysteries who could really lecture about ‘Dao’! The majority of other systems was more about ‘using’, and less about theoretical.
“The Star Convention has officially come to an end.” Heart Imitation Religious Master announced.
Many cultivators were still pondering over what they experienced and heard in the ‘Dao lecture’, and were slightly in a daze. Nevertheless, they began leaving in large batches.
High up in the platform.
Most of them also started standing up to leave.
“Elder Dong Bo.”
“Elder Dong Bo.” Several Primal Chaos existences came directly, sending an invitation for Xue Ying to their gathering.
“Your son’s foresight is not bad.” General Hatchet Palace Master walked next to Monarch Xing Huo, “For him to take Dong Bo Xue Ying as his teacher in the Dao of Mirage is absolutely the best choice for him since Dong Bo Xue Ying is a great teacher.”
“Hahaha.” Monarch Xing Huo laughed.
Seeing how dazzling Xue Ying was, Monarch Xing Huo was genuinely happy.
At this moment–
Heart Imitation Religious Master walked to the side of Xue Ying. The other Primal Chaos existences who were extending their invitation to him stood to the side. Ninth level existences like Heart Imitation Religious Master were people who would still make them feel pressurized.
“Dong Bo.” Heart Imitation Religious Master chuckled. He then transmitted over, “Blade Emperor asked me to pass on the message for you to attempt the Star Pagoda now! And it isn’t Blade Emperor alone, there are also other Cosmos Gods who will be watching you attempt the Star Pagoda.”
“Several Cosmos Gods?” Xue Ying was stunned. This time, several Cosmos Gods were paying close notice to him.
In the past, it was only Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster from his Great Void Heaven Temple who would pay slight attention to him since they recognized that he could become a hall master in the future. Nevertheless, this time, the strongest ‘Blade Emperor’ out of the six great holy grounds and several other Cosmos Gods would be observing his trial through the Star Pagoda. It was evident that Xue Ying had caught the attention of the highest echelon across the six great holy grounds. This was normal since according to past experiences, the chances of Xue Ying stepping into the ninth level Star Pagoda were high.
“Alright, I’ll go and attempt the Star Pagoda at this moment.” Xue Ying transmitted.
Heart Imitation Religious Master nodded with a smile: “I’ll send you over.”
