Chapter 942: Eating the Origin World Rock
“Oh right, do you need any preparations this time before you go to the boundary of the void?” Forefather Tian Yu chuckled, “Your teacher has left behind quite a few treasures for you. There is no point not using them.”
His teacher had prepared all the necessary resources to cultivate in both Vermillion Nightmare and Imperial Dragon inheritances. But to Gu Qi, this was just a paltry amount compared to the treasures he left behind.
“I indeed need to make some preparations.” Xue Ying said, “I require 100,000 Origin World Rocks.”
“100,000 Origin World Rocks?” Forefather Tian Yu was startled, “To eat them?”
“Right.” Xue Ying nodded.
Forefather Tian Yu chuckled: “Alright. There should most likely be few in history who can afford to eat 100,000 Origin World Rocks at the Primal Chaos realm willingly. At least I only know two of them.”
Some were able to obtain a huge harvest due to certain miraculous encounters. They would not publicize this fact after eating them.
“100,000 Origin World Rocks should be quite helpful to a Primal Chaos realm. If a Cosmos God were to eat it, it would not be as helpful.” Xue Ying said.
“Alright, I will help you prepare it.” Forefather Tian Yu chuckled and nodded, “We will subtract from the balance of 300,000 Origin World Rock you have.”
“Other than this, I need a secret treasure too that can dissipate off any incoming impact.” Xue Ying said.
The void boundary…
Xue Ying was confident of his own strength, but it was better to be prudent!
“Value?” Forefather Tian Yu asked.
“Between 50,000 to 100,000 Origin World Rocks.” Xue Ying asked. He still had to leave behind some treasures since Xue Ying did not know when he could ever obtain such voluminous wealth. In the future, he might have some urgent need for treasures.
“Indeed we can exchange an adequate secret treasure with this amount.” Forefather Tian Yu nodded after hearing the value, “There aren’t many secret treasures originally. The only that I think is most appropriate for you is something called ‘Three-Colored Heavy Cloud’, and is currently with Ancestor Sorcerer. I’ll try and ask him if we can buy it.”
Xue Ying immediately nodded.
Ordinary Void God weapons no longer assisted him much. Only a secret treasure would be helpful to him.
What were secret treasures? Cosmos-ranked treasures were considered one! Some were unique treasures formed in the primitive Ancient Sacred World and the primal chaos void before they were altered into powerful treasures. Or they might be treasures with a mysterious origin, like that ‘Third Fire Prison Realm Cauldron’. But its value was so great that even the Sacred Master desired it. He schemed against Monarch Nine Cloud time after time.
As a result, cosmos-ranked treasures were of the lowest level amongst secret treasures.
“Ancestor Sorcerer replied. It will cost 80,000 Origin World Rocks.” Forefather Tian Yu looked towards Xue Ying.
“Alright.” Xue Ying nodded without hesitation. The items produced by Ancestor Sorcerer were definitely extraordinary.
“Haha, I’ve spoken with Ancestor Sorcerer already. He will send someone to send the item over later. Oh, this is information regarding the secret treasure which he just sent regarding the ‘Three-Colored Heavy Cloud’.” Forefather Tian Yu passed down a set of information to Xue Ying. Precisely because he bought the item, that was why he could obtain the relevant information. Otherwise, Forefather Tian Yu and the others would only know part of its properties.
Xue Ying looked through it.
This ‘Three-Colored Heavy Cloud’ was a cloud that Ancestor Sorcerer discovered amidst the vast primal chaos void. He followed along the flow of time, watching the entire process as the Three-Colored Heavy Cloud emerged. This was originally a unique cloud that was given birth during the primitive Ancient Sacred World era. After its destruction, this cloud had undergone some mutation. It was after Ancestor Sorcerer studied many of its mutated properties that he was able to refine this secret treasure according to the cloud.
Ancestor Sorcerer sent someone to bring the Three-Colored Heavy Cloud over. Forefather Tian Yu personally received it before passing it over to Xue Ying.
Clearly, the whole process of how this secret treasure landed in the hands of Xue Ying was kept a secret. Only Forefather Tian Yu, Ancestor Sorcerer, and few others knew about it.
‘Three-Colored Heavy Cloud.’ Xue Ying held onto a pile of soft white clouds in his hand. This pile of soft white clouds was pried open. Xue Ying was able to see the bluish cloud layer and golden cloud layer within it. White, blue and gold… this was how the name ‘three-coloured’ came about.
‘This secret treasure is best used as a robe.’ Xue Ying sat cross-legged on the silvery-silk praying mat within the cultivation room. He was extremely patient as he gradually refined the secret treasure. As the usage of secret treasures was extremely complex, Xue Ying had to truly understand the treasure before he could really use it. Fortunately, the Three-Colored Heavy Cloud was refined by Ancestor Sorcerer, and Xue Ying bought it from it. Naturally, he was told in detail how to refine it.
The method of refining was not difficult. It only required time.
During this process of refinement, Xue Ying would occasionally bring out several pieces of Origin World Rocks and throw them into his mouth. The Origin World Rocks would rapidly turn small and be swallowed into his stomach. It was like eating some kind of tidbits, consuming several pieces in each mouth. After all, the soul of Xue Ying was much stronger than Jing Qiu’s in the past. Thus, eating this much Origin World Rocks did not create great pressure on him.
If he was willing, he could even eat up to a thousand of them.
But Xue Ying wanted to experience the minute changes of his soul.
‘It is indeed Origin World Rocks, the rumored origin energy from the primitive Ancient Sacred World.’ Xue Ying thought. The primitive Ancient Sacred World was comparable to the current primal chaos void. This origin energy would bring about a holistic improvement to his soul.
The effects on his soul after killing Destruction Devils might be better, but how many Destruction Devils would he have to kill to acquire enough energy equivalent to 100,000 Origin World Rocks? One had to know that the Destruction Devils were extremely cunning too. They would not casually send themselves to death. Even those ninth level Primal Chaos existences would only acquire enough unique energy over long periods of killing to match 20,000 to 30,000 Origin World Rocks.
Day passed by day.
Xue Ying’s soul was gradually transforming. It was becoming bigger, allowing his deduction and comprehension skills to accelerate.
In the blink of an eye, 19 years had passed.
Xue Ying might not be in a rush as he consumed the Origin World Rocks, but he still finished devouring all 100,000 Origin World Rocks. On this day, it was coincidentally the moment he completely refined the ‘Three-Colored Heavy Cloud’.
‘This feeling is absurdly great.’ Xue Ying felt that these 19 years were enjoyment to him. The feeling of absorbing the energy was truly mystical.
‘After eating 100,000 Origin World Rocks, my soul has strengthened by 30%.’ Xue Ying felt joy inwardly.
It might not be much.
But in reality, an increase in his foundation by 30% was significant. After all, his soul had reached an extremely strong stage after cultivating the ninth transformation of Vermillion Nightmare Inheritance, and to improve it by the slightest was already very difficult. In the future when he became a Cosmos God, the improvement to his soul would not be too great. Hence, Xue Ying was satisfied with a 30% improvement already.
‘Three-Colored Heavy Cloud…’ Xue Ying thought.
The soft white cloud lump was expanding quickly over the surface of Xue Ying’s body. It eventually formed into a set of a thick snowy-white robe. The robe looked as clean as snow.
‘It is quite thick and feels warm.’ Xue Ying chuckled. With the snowy-white robe worn over his body, Xue Ying felt really comfortable, ‘According to what Forefather mentioned, with this secret treasure, my body should be qualified to be comparable to those in the top 10 of Primal Chaos existences.’
After all, how many Primal Chaos existences were willing to spend eight million Origin World Rocks just for the sake of getting a protective secret treasure?
To Xue Ying, this was not considered much. His target was Sacred Master, and before becoming as strong as him, Xue Ying had to remain alert and vigilant, else he might just fall early. Since he had sufficient Origin World Rocks, he might as well utilize them. In the future should he become a Cosmos God, Xue Ying could easily earn more Origin World Rocks. Otherwise… this secret treasure would be worth the price if he were to remain at the Primal Chaos realm.
‘Time for me to pay the boundary of the void a visit.’ Xue Ying thought.
An incarnation appeared by his side.
Usually, this incarnation of his would be responsible for many of the miscellaneous tasks within the Great Void Heaven Temple like guiding disciples or to attend some critical meeting within the temple. If Xue Ying did not battle, the daily tasks conducted would consume very little of his heart energy. And when there was nothing important, his incarnation could simply sleep. That way, the energy consumption would remain negligible.
The void by the side of the cultivation room warped. Xue Ying who was in his thick white robe took a step into the distorted space before disappearing directly from the vicinity.
