Chapter 936: Jing Qiu Exiting Closed-door Cultivation
Primal chaos cosmos. That was the most primitive state the cosmos existed. Currently, the myriad existences had yet to emerge, and what it represented was boundless possibilities.
But for it to transform into an authentic cosmos was something difficult as the laws of the operating cosmos were much more complicated. This complexity was not disordered. Instead, it comprised of a perfected entity. As a result, many of the talented Primal Chaos existences were able to reach the ninth level Star Pagoda strength yet they could not break through.
The difficulty of breakthrough was too high.
According to history, those who broke through to the Cosmos God realm were at the very least at the eighth level strength! Even though no Star Pagoda existed during the primitive Ancient Sacred World era–and many experts from the Ancient Sacred World and Ancestor Mother world did not attempt the Star Pagoda before, their strength could be compared and judged. And it was determined that those who broke through to the Cosmos God realm were at the least peak eighth level existences with a strong foundation.
“Hong long long~” Within the cultivation room, a world energy vortex was formed. This vortex began collapsing with a voluminous amount of world energy surging right into this point. Endless energy was being absorbed into the cosmos inside Xue Ying’s body, causing the cosmos inside him to grow. This disturbance was relatively huge, incurring others within the Great Void Heaven Temple to guess what was happening.
With such a huge disturbance happening and the origin of it was at the Ling Yun peak? Did Elder Dong Bo break through to the Primal Chaos realm?
Some were saying: “He has only entered closed-door cultivation for 300 years. How can it be so fast! The Mirage technique displayed by Elder Dong Bo absorbs a huge amount of world energy too so it might be him practicing his technique.”
“Elder Dong Bo is at the seventh level strength. Isn’t it normal for him to reach the Primal Chaos realm in just 300 years?”
Many were discussing.
Though Xue Ying was in closed-door cultivation without being influenced by the discussions happening. Forefather Tian Yu and Primal Chaos Hall Master did not leak what happened as well.
After a long period.
Only then did the world energy vortex subside. The Primal Chaos Cosmos in his body was fully grown and completed.
‘Primal Chaos Cosmos is also called a miniature cosmos.’ Xue Ying could feel the cosmos created transformed from the Mirage Origin.’
This miniature cosmos was actually relatively vast.
The primal chaos energy movement within caused the rise and fall of many weaker illusory realms. This was ultimately a cosmos transformed using the Dao of Mirage as the origin. It was otherwise known as a ‘Mirage Miniature Cosmos’.
‘Now that the foundation is built, I hope I can succeed in growing this miniature cosmos, forming the myriad existences and turn it into a cosmos.’ Xue Ying thought. He then began augmenting his soul using the structural law of the newly comprehended ‘Mirage Miniature Cosmos’, though because Xue Ying had broken through in his ancient cultivation before this, the benefit it had to his soul was minimal–about 20 to 30%.
Cultivating other systems was like this.
The first breakthrough assisted his soul the most. Advances of any other systems would only be adding flowers to the brocade–the assistance other systems would have on the cultivator would become weaker and weaker.
Xue Ying then calmed himself down and continued comprehending the Dao of Mirage…
“Hua hua hua…”
After breaking through, Xue Ying began having many ideas regarding the operation of the Mirage Miniature Cosmos. He had once created the ‘Destruction Flower’ and experienced that sort of grand perfection ‘amazing feeling’. Naturally, Xue Ying sought to achieve that feeling on his Mirage Miniature Cosmos laws! This was the difference in those who reached the seventh level. Once the cultivator experienced this feeling, he would have a greater reason to pursue after it again.
With a clear direction and target, the Dao of Mirage was becoming more and more profound and mysterious.
“Hong.” After cultivating for about five million years or so, Xue Ying finally succeeded in cultivating the eighth transformation of the Vermillion Nightmare inheritance! This represented the seventh level strength in the Vermillion Nightmare inheritance. It was not an arduous task. Even those ordinary Primal Chaos existences could achieve this after cultivating for some time. Ba Yun Palace Master’s ‘Imperial Dragon inheritance’ had reached the seventh level strength as well.
But Ba Yun Palace Master no longer had any improvements after so long.
As for Xue Ying, he merely cultivated for just five million years! This was a frighteningly short period. One could foresee that the ninth transformation of Vermillion Nightmare inheritance was not difficult for Xue Ying to achieve.
‘It is getting slower.’
‘The more profound it is, the harder it is for me to comprehend the Dao of Mirage. The ninth transformation of Vermillion Nightmare inheritance will likely require me to spend a longer time.’ Xue Ying spent a total of 10 million years on the Dao of Mirage alone. He finally understood that he would have to spend ‘billions of years’ to comprehend the ninth transformation.
But if this were to be leaked, it sufficed to incur the jealousy and envy of many other Primal Chaos existences.
One had to know that Ancestor Devil cultivated for a very long time, relying on his six great incarnation techniques to attain the eighth level strength. One could see how difficult it was.
Nevertheless, Xue Ying did not have to go out and temper himself. He merely had to cultivate and spend a little more time deducing it just after entering closed-door cultivation for the first time after breaking through to reach the ninth transformation!
‘Time to train in the Dao of Slaughter first.’ Xue Ying felt that the improvements in the Dao of Mirage were becoming slower. Thus, he began training in another area he specialized in–Dao of Slaughter.
During the process of creating the “Destruction Flower”, Xue Ying had fused both Dao of Mirage and Dao of Slaughter. He had experienced that feeling of grand perfection in the Dao of Slaughter before as well–this was something beneficial to his cultivation of the Dao of Slaughter.
After cultivating for half a month.
The Imperial Dragon inheritance reached the seventh transformation!
After cultivating for another 36 million years, Xue Ying reached the eighth transformation in the Imperial Dragon inheritance!
‘My talent in the Dao of Slaughter is indeed weaker than that of the Dao of Mirage.’ Xue Ying could make this judgment.
‘Time to begin.’
‘The current Vermillion Nightmare inheritance and Imperial Dragon inheritance are both at the eighth transformation… it is time for me to create the second style of “Destruction Flower”.’ Xue Ying’s eyes were filled with high expectations.
The Destruction Flower.
Being the creator, Xue Ying understood that the inherent Dao of Slaughter and Dao of Mirage had to reach an equilibrium. This was the premise of creating this technique.
As a result.
In the cultivation room, many illusory worlds began appearing. But every time the world tried to grow a Destruction Flower, it would collapse. The current Xue Ying wielded the Dao of Mirage and Dao of Slaughter that was more profound than when he was at the Unity realm, and thus, the difficulty of re-creating the Destruction Flower had reduced. The reason was that creating the seventh level Destruction Flower at the Unity realm required an absolute grand perfection which represented the pinnacle. Currently, it was different. He could still deepen his understanding of the Dao of Mirage and Dao of Slaughter and was far from reaching the pinnacle. Thus, whenever he felt that the ‘Destruction Flower’ was lacking something, Xue Ying could always improve his understanding of both the Dao of Mirage and Dao of Slaughter to cover this weakness.
As a result, after just 38 million years later.
A black flower bud floated within the cultivation room. Xue Ying emitted a happy look as he observed this flower. This black flower bud had a total of six black leaves, and six black petals too. Its structure was much more complicated.
‘Blossom.’ Xue Ying smiled.
The black flower bud blossomed, forming six petals.
The six black petals and black leaves directly crumbled apart to form six black airstreams crisscrossing one another. The entire inner section became pitch black, and everything was exterminated.
‘This move has become much stronger. It is so much stronger than the force exerted by seven Destruction Flowers stacked on one another.’ Xue Ying made his judgment, ‘Maybe it is at the eighth level strength?’ This was merely conjecture. Xue Ying had after all not gone off to the Star Pagoda to affirm it.
“Hu, hu, hu.”
The surrounding three illusory worlds formed a six-petal black flower each.
A total of three flowers were formed.
‘Its burden on my heart energy is too great. I can only unleash three flowers at the same time.’ Xue Ying thought, If I did not train in the Vermillion Nightmare inheritance, I should only be able to form a single flower.’
The Vermillion Nightmare inheritance had strengthened his soul to three or four times stronger than Primal Chaos existences at the same level.
Even though it had significantly strengthened his soul at the Unity realm, but it was because his soul was at the Unity level that made the effect so obvious. If a Primal Chaos giant were to train in the Vermillion Nightmare inheritance, with how strong his soul was, the assistance of the sixth transformation of Vermillion Nightmare inheritance would likely be less than two-folds! Thus, the strengthening of Xue Ying’s soul was not as evident when he reached the Primal Chaos realm.
But three to four times… was frightening enough!
It had been 190 million years since Xue Ying entered closed-door cultivation.
“Xue Ying, I am out.”
A message came.
Xue Ying who was currently cultivating opened his eyes with great joy and delight. His communication treasure spirit had long received the order to not disturb him unless something huge happened! But the message from his wife Jing Qiu was not blocked.
‘Jing Qiu is out?’ Xue Ying is full of joy.
With a thought, space beside was torn. Xue Ying took a step before arriving at the distant hometown cosmos.
“Master, there is a lifeform who suddenly left the Great Void Heaven Temple.” A deep voice sounded within the courtyard. Forefather Tian Yu who seemed to be sleeping suddenly opened his eyes. He revealed a calm look, “Are there any special reasons why you are informing this to me?”
“Yes. I am unable to perceive the way he left the place. I can only ascertain that there was just a single being who left from the region I am supervising.” The treasure spirit’s deep voice continued.
Forefather Tian Yu’s expression turned solemn.
This treasure spirit was the most secretive and concealed protective array treasure spirit in the Great Void Heaven Temple. It had been refined by the collective effort of both Luo City Lord and Ancestor Sorcerer. With this protective array, the Great Void Heaven Temple was considered fortified and invulnerable to attacks. This protective array might not be able to prevent others from conducting the mysterious ‘ultra-long distance teleportation’, though it was able to supervise all beings within.
Any outsiders would immediately be discovered.
“Who?” Forefather Tian Yu asked. If it were Inquisitive Sky Hall Master who teleported someone away, the treasure spirit would not inform him.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying.” The treasure spirit said.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying?” Forefather Tian Yu was stunned. Closely following that, he asked, “Is it he who left by himself, or that he asked some other expert to bring him away?”
“It is he who left by himself.” The treasure spirit said.
Forefather Tian Yu was startled.
He left by himself?
The ultra-long distance teleportation was something extremely mysterious. Those of the Voidwalker lineage who specialized in controlling the void could achieve this after reaching the Cosmos God realm. Those of the Myriad World Tavern Master’s lineage could do it too. But there were only so few people who could achieve this. Furthermore, the rest and most commonly seen cultivators who could do this depended on ancient cultivation! There were all sorts of innate skills the ancient cultivators had, and one included ultra-long distance teleportation.
“He left himself? He can teleport through an ultra-long distance?” Forefather Tian Yu did not dare believe it.
Ultra-long distance teleportation was something essential.
The majority of Cosmos Gods could not do so. As a result, most would find someone who specialized in doing so within their organization to help them. Otherwise, they could only request a Primal Chaos giant who specialized in doing so to join their organization! Like the Great Void Heaven Temple, they had Inquisitive Sky Hall Master who specialized in doing this. That was how experts within the Great Void Heaven Temple could easily proceed to various places and even reach the boundary of the void swiftly.
Without him? The entire Great Void Heaven Temple would be hoodwinked!
“Isn’t Dong Bo Xue Ying’s ancient cultivation lineage the Vermillion Nightmare inheritance and the Imperial Dragon inheritance? Unless it is some innate skill or his talent in the void? Mn, he is a Voidwalker so it might really be related to his talent in something related to the void.” Forefather Tian Yu could not help but reveal a grin.
