Chapter 941: Hiding
“Yes, an important matter.” Forefather Tian Yu nodded, “Ever since the primitive Ancient Sacred World shattered, the primal chaos void is continuously expanding. There are also Destruction Devils emerging from the boundary of the void. During this period, there are more and more Destruction Devils appearing, and the pressure we currently face in resisting against them is becoming greater. They are here for destruction. Maybe this vast primal chaos void desires to destroy us and re-create an entirely new world. Even though we might be strong, in front of the supreme law, we are as strong as ants.”
Xue Ying was startled.
He thought about how he had once perceived the higher dimensional world through the holes within the ‘black fog spheres’.
“Even though the number of Destruction Devils is growing, we believe that we are able to defend ourselves well and prevent them from breaking through us.” Forefather Tian Yu solemnly said, “Not too long after I’ve roamed around the primal chaos void and created a few cosmos, at the time approximately during the fifth epoch of your hometown cosmos, we discovered that Destruction Devils are hiding within the five great sacred worlds!”
“What!” Xue Ying was startled, “The Destruction Devils have entered the five great sacred worlds? Aren’t we always intercepting them before they enter our primal chaos void?”
Even he had only heard that the Destruction Devils were entirely resisted by the perfect defenses without any breaking into this place!
“We thought we did a good job defending the void, but reality showed otherwise. This is unquestionable. There are indeed Destruction Devils who have entered and hide among us.” Forefather Tian Yu shook his head, “After thinking thoroughly, we merely assumed that we had been able to defend against the Destruction Devils perfectly despite them killing their way to the final spatial barrier. Nevertheless, there should be at least once when the net had broken, allowing those fishes to bypass the final spatial barrier.”
“As of now, we have discovered more than a hundred traces of the Destruction Devils. They are all golden-armored Destruction Devils. We can ascertain that there are at least 15 different golden-armored Destruction Devils, and they are extremely cunning and vigilant. Furthermore, they have the capabilities of altering their auras. Usually, they would be disguising themselves as ordinary cultivators. Only when they massacred us, cultivators, would they reveal themselves to the world. Thus, as of now, we have not been able to capture any single one of them.”
“They come to this world for the sake of destruction. Thus, it is impossible for them not to grab hold of every single opportunity to start a large-scale massacre.”
“To this, we have been telling others that it has been some huge devour-class devil killing wantonly! We have never told the public that these incidents have been caused by the Destruction Devils.”
Forefather Tian Yu shook his head, “Furthermore, the more Destruction Devils there are at the boundary of the void, the greater the number of large-scale assaults they would incite, allowing them to kill their way to the final spatial barrier more frequently. In the end, we were able to discover traces of the Destruction Devils more regularly in large-scale massacres within the five great sacred worlds and the primal chaos void.”
“That currently, we still have the upper hand. But the longer we wait, the fewer advantages we will have, until a certain point in time which we might just be on the disadvantaged end, and lose to the assault by the Destruction Devils.”
“It’s a pity that the Sacred Master isn’t willing to help. If he were, we would have an easier time.”
Xue Ying turned silent.
Even if Sacred Master helped, he would merely delay the final outcome of destruction.
“Maybe the Sacred Master understood this, that the Destruction Devils will become wilder in the future. And he no longer has his previous patience any longer.” Forefather Tian Yu said, “The Sacred Master during the early period is extremely patient. For the sake of certain goals, he would hide for a very long time. But this time, he had chosen to sacrifice part of his origin source energy which he accumulated for a long time to kill your teacher Gu Qi. It was not for the sake of obtaining some benefits, but just because he wanted to vent his anger? This was something the Sacred Master would definitely not do in the past.”
“Trouble internally and aggression from the outside.”
Forefather Tian Yu shook his head, “Naturally, we aren’t worried about the Sacred Master since he can’t change the final outcome of this situation! In the end, it is the Destruction Devils who are the most threatening ones. There might be a day when this primal chaos void is destroyed, and we are merely delaying it. The longer we delay, the better since it is possible for miracles to happen after a longer period.”
“We are already doing our best in the defense against the Destruction Devils at the boundary of the void.”
“Currently, we are only worried about the Destruction Devils who are hiding amongst us. They are extremely careful. Even when the Cosmos Gods chased after them in the dark, they seemed to be able to perceive them, and would not show their true selves at all! And it is impossible for Primal Chaos experts to triumph against them. If these giants are not careful, they might even lose their lives. Of the 10 Primal Chaos existences which died the most recently, two died at the boundary of the void fighting the war. Another two died due to internal conflict. As for the final six, they had been assassinated by the Destruction Devils who hid amongst us.”
“Ah.” Xue Ying was shocked. In his heart, the names of the ten Primal Chaos experts who died most recently appeared.
“We have always been hiding this secret because we are worried about causing terror and panic amongst the cultivators.” Forefather Tian Yu said.
“When Cosmos Gods come close, they will not dare to show themselves.”
“And it is not certain that the Primal Chaos giants could kill them. Even though there are some who had ninth level combat power, they did not dare to take the risk.” Forefather Tian Yu shook his head, “After all, there are two peak eighth level experts who died.”
“Thus, we have always been hoping to find a cultivator with ninth level combat power who had the escaping capability of ‘ultra-long distance teleportation’ to chase after the Destruction Devils.” Forefather Tian Yu said, “But there are ultimately too few experts at the ninth level combat power. As for those who had ultra-long distance teleportation, there are only three in total before you.”
Xue Ying knew this too.
There were very few who could do ultra-long distance teleportation. Cosmos Gods who could do this could be counted with one’s fingers. Because there were more Primal Chaos existences, there was a batch of them, though only three were at the ‘ninth level Star Pagoda strength’.
“One is from the Ancient Sacred Religion, and one is from the Ancestor Mother Religion. The final one belongs to the Myriad Realm Tavern Master lineage.” Forefather Tian Yu felt helpless, “And there are actually none within the six great holy grounds and the Myriad Ancient Sacred World.”
“But now, you are our hope.” Forefather Tian Yu looked at Xue Ying.
“You know ultra-long distance teleportation, and has reached the peak of eighth level currently! The moment you reached the ninth level, you will be the best person for this.” Forefather Tian Yu said.
Xue Ying nodded. But he could not help but ask: “There are even two peak eighth level experts who died, and we do not even have the time to go save them. Is it possible for those hiding Destruction Devils to be at the Cosmos God level?”
“This is also why we felt that the ninth level expert must know ultra-long distance teleportation for him to be the optimal person of choice.” Forefather Tian Yu said solemnly, “Even though we do not have the evidence, we suspect that there might possibly be Cosmos God Destruction Devils hiding amongst us! And those who reached the ninth level will at least be able to survive for a while and hold his ground against the enemies. He could depend on the ultra-long distance teleportation to survive better.”
“Naturally, we will also prepare a huge gift for you! With this huge gift, in addition to your own strength, you will naturally be in good hands.” Forefather Tian Yu said.
“After that… you should focus on survival during your cultivation, strengthening this aspect as much as you could.” Forefather Tian Yu said, “Your current survival capabilities are ranked in the top 30 amongst those at the Primal Chaos realm, but if you were to train the “Imperial Dragon inheritance” to the ninth transformation, along with your ‘void-fication’ capabilities and your true body hiding in the Mirage, you should be ranked in the top 10 with your survival capabilities.”
Xue Ying understood.
There were only about 20 Primal Chaos giants at the ninth level, yet there was a huge bunch of those at the peak of the eighth level! If he were to train his Imperial Dragon inheritance to the eighth transformation, his bodily defenses would be ranked beyond 100. After all, the fleshy body of those devour-class cultivators was quite powerful too. There are even the strongest warrior system and the hex cultivation… with those ancient cultivators with a unique talent, there would thus be quite a few who were great with their survival capabilities.
Xue Ying’s bodily defenses were ranked in the top 30, and that was terrifying. If he were ranked in the top 10, Xue Ying would likely be able to resist against the attacks of Cosmos Gods.
“By then, accompanied with this huge gift prepared by us, you should be safer.” Forefather Tian Yu chuckled, “Naturally, you are still slightly weaker concerning your offense. Currently, you are ranked at the top 50 amongst those at the Primal Chaos realm! In the future, we do hope for you to deal with those extremely powerful Destruction Devils who hide amongst us. If you could not kill them in a short period, they would definitely escape after splitting up their body.”
“Understood.” Xue Ying nodded.
“Go to the boundary of the void. Properly cultivate. Many of those who reached the ninth level strength have achieved it because they underwent many battles, tempering themselves at the boundary of the void.”
“Mn.” Xue Ying was looking forward to it too.
Fighting with the Destruction Devils at the boundary of the void… tempering himself was one aspect. The other aspect was that after killing the Destruction Devils, they would vaporize and form some unique energy that was similar to that of the Origin World Rock energy. Absorbing it would be helpful to his soul. Furthermore, the stronger the Destruction Devil he killed, the greater this nourishment would be to his soul. Ordinary gray-armored ‘Destruction Devils’ would only give off energy comparable to an ordinary Origin World Rock. The blood-armored Destruction Devils would give an effect much better than an Origin World Rock. As for the golden-armored Destruction Devils, they were even more amazing since it was nourishment for the essence of their souls.
As a result, gaining combat experience was one thing. Xue Ying would also be raising the quality of his soul by battling there. That was why the majority of the ninth level Star Pagoda Primal Chaos existences appeared after tempering themselves there.
