Chapter 933: Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World, Great Void Heaven Temple
Forefather Tian Yu was seated next to Swordmaster. They were chatting and drinking while watching the scene in front of them–Xue Ying being accompanied by Heart Imitation Religious Master down to the entrance of the Star Pagoda. As it had been more than half a month since Xue Ying lectured about the Dao, both Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster had long prepared themselves to watch Xue Ying attempt the Star Pagoda.
The six great holy grounds were so close that they were like a single entity. As such, the other Cosmos Gods were also paying close notice to Xue Ying.
“I once considered that the potential of this brat is quite high, and it is possible for him to step into the Primal Chaos realm.” Forefather Tian Yu chuckled, “Who would have thought that I still underestimated his potential for he has reached the seventh level so quickly despite being at the Unity realm. I believe there might be another expert at the ninth level in my Great Void Heaven Temple shortly. By then, my Great Void Heaven Temple will be the same as Blade Emperor City out of the six great holy grounds, with two experts at the ninth level.”
Currently, out of the six great holy grounds, only Blade Emperor City contained two ninth level experts.
The Great Void Heaven Temple had just a single Primal Chaos Hall Master.
And the Primogenitor Island only had General Hatchet Palace Master. As such, it was quite rare for him to take on the responsibility as a teacher of the convention, resulting in Blade Emperor City sending ‘Heart Imitation Religious Master’ as the host. Furthermore, Monarch Xing Huo went to participate in the Star Convention for his son. As such, there were a total of three ninth level existences participating in the convention, and this was rare! There was even a Unity realm seventh level emerging in this Star Convention, which was something more unusual.
“He might even become a Cosmos God in the future.” Swordmaster laughed.
“Cosmos God? That is difficult.” Forefather Tian Yu sighed, “The emergence of Cosmos God happens when they find their own Dao path. It’s only you Swordmaster who was so outstanding that you could cultivate by yourself in the cosmos and reach the Primal Chaos realm. After coming to the Great Void Heaven Temple, you were able to break through to the Cosmos God realm after entering closed-door cultivation.”
Swordmaster was indeed a legend.
How many Cosmos Gods had experienced and tempered themselves many times before becoming one? Before Swordmaster became a Cosmos God, he was not that famous in the entire primal chaos void. Others only knew that there was a new Primal Chaos existence in the ‘Great Void Heaven Temple’ called Swordmaster, though not long later, he became a Cosmos God. Naturally, the shock it incited was stronger than the one induced by Xue Ying this time.
It had made countless experts fall into a daze.
Several Cosmos Gods were watching this from several places. Because everyone came from the six great holy grounds, the Star Pagoda permitted them to observe what was happening within.
“Several Cosmos Gods are watching you, so you must do your best.” Heart Imitation Religious Master said.
“That is natural.” Xue Ying flew into the Star Pagoda. Even though this was the Star Pagoda located in Blade Emperor City, it was similar in its way of refinement to the Great Void Heaven Temple; Xue Ying was familiar with it.
Seventh level of the Star Pagoda. A blood-colored stream of light flew out from within the mountain range, condensing into ten figures. They were none other than the Destructive Devils who were in blood-colored armor. They were slightly different from the opponents located in the Star Pagoda within Great Void Heaven Temple, though Xue Ying knew that the degree of difficulty was the same.
‘Go.’ Xue Ying sent out a thought.
The black flower buds appeared from nothingness. It caused the world energy to surge horrifyingly, enveloping over the ten Destruction Devils. With a thought, many flowers appeared continuously–a total of seven black flowers with one encompassing another. The innermost layer wrapped around the ten shocked Destruction Devils! After all, Xue Ying’s technique came from the illusion, and those devils could not evade even if they wanted to.
The surrounding World Energy vortex had yet to dissipate when Xue Ying hollered: “Extinguish!”
He was not merciful. He erupted all seven Destruction Flowers at the same time.
“Hong hong hong~”
When facing Ba Yun Palace Master, Xue Ying was not as ruthless to blossom all seven black flowers at the same time. The blossoming of the flower was also when it revealed its destructive might. The ten Destructive Devils let out ear-piercing screeches.
Once the shockwave cleared, there were two heavily-injured Destruction Devils left behind.
Just a single full-powered move by Xue Ying caused the death of eight Destruction Devils and two heavily-injured ones. These two devils had the strongest defenses and were able to survive primarily because Xue Ying scattered the power from the seven Destruction Flowers across the ten Destruction Devils.
The remaining two Destruction Devils were convulsing in fear. They tried escaping.
Alas, it was too late!
“Extinguish!” Xue Ying unleashed seven more black Destruction Flowers again. Once those flowers blossomed, the remaining two Destruction Devils were killed.
‘That time I displayed my domain and illusory realm as well as the Sky Punishment Edges and tried my best. I relied on my strong defenses to hold on as well. Only after spending a long time were I able to kill eight of the Destruction Devils. Nevertheless, I am able to kill all of them instantaneously now.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly. He knew that he should be quite strong amongst those at the seventh level strength.
After all, according to his deduction, just a single Destruction Flower contained sufficient force that touched the boundary of the seventh level. With seven flowers being unleashed simultaneously, how much stronger was it?
‘Let’s attempt the eighth level.’ Xue Ying wanted to experience how it was at the eighth level.
He shot into the sky, flying through the vortex passage.
The eighth level of Star Pagoda consisted of an enormous battle platform. There was a golden light rising on the surface of the platform, condensing into an alien wearing golden armor. That golden armor seemed like skin which stuck to his entire body. He had three thin tails with exceptional sharpness at their end. He had two arms too that reached his knees.
‘Golden-armored Destruction Devil.’ Xue Ying thought. He understood quite a lot about the Destruction Devils.
The Destruction Devils were categorized according to their armor–gray, blood and gold. The weakest of the golden-armored Destruction Devils had a seventh level Star Pagoda strength, and the strongest reached the ninth level strength.
And beyond that…
There were Destruction Devils who were comparable to Cosmos Gods. They did not have any specific appearances. They could even conceal their destructive aura, making it hard for Primal Chaos existences to discern them.
“Unity realm?” This golden-armored Destruction Devil was shocked as he stared at Xue Ying in front.
“Extinguish.” Xue Ying did not hesitate. He unleashed all seven Destruction Flowers!
Under the power of the seven Destruction Flowers, there were only some slight damages on the skin-armor of this golden-armored Destruction Devil. He was able to instantly recover from it.
“Die.” He immediately rushed into the 500-kilometers region around Xue Ying. As this region was where Xue Ying’s law domain persisted, one that was reconstructed according to the structure of the ‘Destruction Flower’, this Destruction Devil was unable to teleport in and had to rely on his speed to travel in.
‘Too fast.’ Xue Ying hurriedly unleashed his Destruction Flowers, yet he was still slow. Xue Ying was forced to teleport and evade against the attack. Even when one or two flowers had just wrapped around the enemy, the other party was able to tear out of them easily.
The Destruction Devil was too fast.
Xue Ying was unable to handle the other party with his offense. He was forced to give up in the end after a few bouts.
‘It seems I am still quite far away from the eighth level.’ Xue Ying sighed, ‘Even my strongest offensive technique is still far off. I must reach the Primal Chaos realm before attempting this again.’
The Cosmos Gods who were watching the battle from afar were rather proud of Xue Ying since even though there had only been two Unity realm existences who attempted the eighth level Star Pagoda, one of them–’Heart Imitation Religious Master’–had almost admitted defeat the next moment! The other was someone from the Jade Light Sacred Territory called ‘Great Emperor Jin Yi’ who was able to rely on his transcendental domain and defense to hold on for a longer period.
As for Xue Ying, he relied on his offense to hold on for a few bouts. The seven Destruction Flowers were able to influence the speed of the other party.
Within Blade Emperor City.
In a small house beside the lake. There were two figures walking side by side. One was the golden-robed Blade Emperor, and the other was a male wearing a loose dull-gray gown. He was Luo City Lord.
“Teacher, how do you find this Dong Bo Xue Ying?” Blade Emperor laughed. He was humble.
If this were to spread out, it would likely startle the entire primal chaos void.
Nobody knew that the strongest ‘Blade Emperor’ of the six great holy grounds would be the disciple of Luo City Lord! Blade Emperor with a high status would actually be the disciple of a Primal Chaos existence?
“He has quite a potential. Place him in the preparatory list.” Luo City Lord chuckled, “He is still too tender. It is too early for him.”
“Mn.” Blade Emperor obediently nodded.
“Actually, instead of talking about his strength, I am more astounded at how calm he is.” Luo City Lord said, “He has revealed his strength during the Star Convention, allowing his name to spread across the primal chaos void with many Primal Chaos existences fawning on him. That is his glory. According to logic, even those who reached a profound stage in heart realm would feel their blood boiling! Yet he can remain calm. I cannot feel how excited he is from my perspective.”
Blade Emperor was startled. He nodded: “Right. That’s the case.”
“Interesting.” A smile appeared on the face of Luo City Lord.
The two of them did not know that in the heart of Xue Ying, the existence he wanted to deal against was the strongest expert in the current primal chaos void, ‘Sacred Master’. Even his teacher Gu Qi had died in the hands of the other party. Xue Ying had questioned himself–although this little achievement was worth celebrating for, there was no point being too excited over it since he was still too far away on his Dao journey to where Sacred Master was at.
Void God Temple
Void Primogenitor sat by himself. He was able to gaze across every single part of the primal chaos void. Even though the void was vast and boundless with many living beings within, it no longer contained his disciple Gu Qi.
Seeing how dazzling this grand-student Xue Ying was, he felt joyful.
But Gu Qi could no longer see it.
He could never forget about how Gu Qi was so excited after Xue Ying’s battle with Lei Yan, yet Gu Qi had nobody to talk to. He had pulled Void Primogenitor over instead to brag about it.
“Gu Qi.” Void Primogenitor muttered, “Your disciple Dong Bo Xue Ying is now the strongest Unity realm across the five great sacred worlds. If you know about this, you would be very happy about it right?”
