Chapter 1272 – Ascendant?
As this bird threw itself down, its pair of wings formed a gale filled with wind blades. It cut through the sky with a whistle, slicing down against the region where Xue Ying sat. Around Xue Ying appeared a black flower. This black flower folded up and protected Xue Ying. Those wind blades sliced down on the black flower, causing the flower to shake as if it was going to collapse.
Xue Ying felt an alarming joy: ‘What an amazing lifeform. Even though I did not spend much energy to ‘transform illusion into reality’ with my Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm, these techniques still hold the power of ordinary Cosmos Gods. Nonetheless, the wind blades generated by this bird with its wings are already this powerful and could easily reach the strength of a level-two Cosmos God?’
The killing technique of turning illusion into reality.
He researched this technique while he was still at the Primal Chaos Realm. After he stepped into the Cosmos God Realm in his Dao of Void, Xue Ying no longer research on this type of technique since it would only reach the limit of level-two Cosmos God at most. After all, techniques created using the Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm were not good in direct combat. If he chose to further improve this technique, it would be a waste of time.
‘I finally met a living being in this world.’ Xue Ying felt joy.
With a thought.
The Mirage and Illusory Realm engulfed that bird. That bird was originally wild and violent. Following which, its eyes turned dim and its body slammed onto the ground powerlessly. This impact caused innumerable sandstones to fly upwards—which was quite incredible given their weight.
‘Seems weird.’ Xue Ying frowned slightly. He had only pulled the consciousness of this bird into an illusion, yet evidently, its consciousness was only slightly stronger than a wild beast. It had once met some ‘humanoid’ experts, and some had been eaten by it even! It had even perceived some existence that was so strong that it felt an innate sense of danger. When that occurred, it immediately escaped further away.
In the memory of the long life the bird had, Xue Ying did not gather much useful information. There had been cases of humans injured by it. Some were even devoured voraciously. Before that, Xue Ying was able to procure memories of those humans drinking and chatting happily. Adding up, he was only able to gather several thousand sentences of words. Xue Ying rapidly deduced the language used by the natives of this world from thus.
And the information he could infer from these several thousand words was quite pitiful.
‘It really knows very little.’
‘Whatever. I shall just let it go.’ With a thought, Xue Ying released the consciousness of this bird. It was simply too easy for an expert like Xue Ying in the Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm to influence this wild animal.
That savage bird soon regained its consciousness. It woke up groggily. Finding that it was sprawled on the ground, as it looked around, it spotted Xue Ying. It was at this moment as if it had seen something terrifying. That bird immediately flapped its wings and left this place, disappearing in the horizons.
Xue Ying watched silently: ‘Somehow, I did not see any human experts in the memory of this savage bird that could teleport? Is it difficult for one to teleport in this world?’
He was a Dao of Void expert. Teleportation was like an innate ability for him. Yet currently, most of the profound mysteries in the Dao of Void he comprehended were inharmonious with this world. Even his Chaotic Origin Refined Body was collapsing apart.
‘I shall not think anymore.’
‘I should focus first on stabilizing this fleshy body of mine.’
Xue Ying went back to his task of stabilizing his body.
His other avatars located in the Realm Heart Great Land and Primal Chaos Void were similarly focusing on getting him out of this predicament, and they had found a direction to work towards! Even though much of the ‘profound mysteries at the final realm of the Dao of Void’ had been inharmonious in this world, some were still useful. The current method Xue Ying thought of… was to base these workable laws and profound mysteries to deduce out a different set of laws that were compatible in this world.
Furthermore, he had to alter the ‘Chaotic Origin Refined Body’ and simplify it further.
That way, it would reduce the conflict it had with this world!
If he re-created his fleshy body by using a cultivation technique that was completely aligned to the laws and profound mysteries of this world, there would no longer be any conflict. Nonetheless, his body would be too weak! Hence, he had to seek a balance between ‘strength’ and ‘balance’.
And this required time!
A huge ship was currently flying amidst the clouds. This ship was luxurious, and there were many soldiers standing on the deck guarding the ship.
There was also a pair of young and beautiful girls standing on the main deck. They were currently holding on to the railings and looking down on the vast earth. A beautiful and glistening lake could be seen far away. Glancing over, many huge ‘wild beasts’ could be seen drinking water from the lake.
“The scenery of the Great Wilderness is really beautiful.” A girl in light blue robe laughed. Looking down at the Great Wilderness lighted up by the sun, “I truly wish to follow the footsteps of my big brother, wandering by myself in the Great Wilderness.”
“Young lady, the Great Wilderness is incredibly dangerous.” A green-robed female attendant replied, “There are very few tribes living in this Great Wilderness, and all of them are having a hard time surviving here. After all, they have to fight back against the wild beasts! It is still fine if young lady brings a large group of protectors along. But wandering in the Great Wilderness alone? You should at least have the strength of a God Monarch. Crown Prince is currently a peak God Monarch already.”
“Xi’er, so what you are saying is that my strength is insufficient?” The girl in light blue snorted at the female attendant.
“Young lady’s bloodline is noble. Young lady is also being tutored personally by the City Masters. It is naturally easy for young lady to reach the God Monarch realm. As for now? This attendant feels that young lady is still lacking by a bit.” The green-robed attendant giggled.
“You are becoming more and more undisciplined to dare tease against the young lady you are serving.” The girl in light blue coldly snorted. But after a while, she smiled. She had known this attendant for far too long. Ever since they were young, they had lived together and were like blood-siblings. She naturally did not mind the other party teasing her.
The light-blue-robed girl went back to enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Great Wilderness.
With a ship full of experts, those wild beasts in the Great Wilderness dared not offend them.
“Mn?” The eyes of the girl in light blue brightened suddenly. She immediately pointed out, “Hurry up and look over! There is someone there.”
“Yi?” The attendant was similarly startled, “There is really someone there?”
Xue Ying was seated cross-legged in the Great Wilderness. He also noticed that huge ship flying over currently. The ship was grand and large, and no ‘savage birds’ or other wild beasts dared to attack it.
‘I’ve spent half a day deducing out the laws. I could at least maintain my fleshy body at a strength of a final realm cultivator.’ Xue Ying felt slightly helpless. He relied on the laws and profound mysteries that did not suffer from any conflict with this world as foundation to construct a simplified ‘Chaotic Origin Refined Body’ cultivation technique! Even though it was greatly simplified, it still contained much profound mysteries that were in conflict with the laws of this world.
Otherwise, it was impossible for Xue Ying to deduce a sufficiently powerful body refinement technique just by relying on those profound mysteries.
As for a weaker version? Xue Ying felt disdainful of it.
‘Currently, I could at least keep my body stable.’
‘Even though part of my body is constantly crumbling apart, my body is also constantly recovering at a faster rate.’ Xue Ying thought. His body was constantly being ‘injured’ and ‘recovering’ at the same time. Naturally, since the rate of recovery was faster, he could maintain a form of stability!
And at least his fleshy body could maintain a strength at the final realm.
One had to know that the previous preliminary version of the third level Chaotic Origin Refined Body was at the unparalleled level! He even came out with the second version that reached the initial Emperor level.
And now, he fell back to the boundary of final realm level! He even had to constantly suppress his injuries.
‘I guess from now on, I would have to make use of the time to regain my strength.’ Xue Ying thought.
That huge ship flew over to Xue Ying. At the head of the ship, that girl in light blue looked curiously at Xue Ying. A cold and strict-looking old man appeared by her side. This old man said: “Third Lady, do be careful. Those who dare to adventure in the Great Wilderness are often lawless. It is best for Third Lady to maintain a distance with him.”
“Housekeeper Yun, what is happening with him? Why do I find that something is wrong with him?” The girl replied with a question.
This old man stood at the head of the ship. Suddenly, a third eye opened up by his forehead. This third eye emitted a faint jade light that surveyed that man. With a glance, the old man sneered: “This man is barely at the God Monarch level, though the injuries on his body are serious. He is currently doing his best to recover. An initial God Monarch dares to roam in the Great Wilderness? Hmph hmph, he is truly seeking death.”
“He is injured. Let us help him. It is possible for a powerful beast to attack him anytime in the Great Wilderness.” That girl in light blue added.
“Third Lady is too benevolent.” The old man shook his head, “Such person who has unknown origins, or is it—yi?”
That old man suddenly revealed a look of astonishment.
Several commanders by the side all turned to Housekeeper Yun. Housekeeper Yun was the true leader of this team on the ship. Naturally, the nominal commander was still the Third Lady.
The third eye located in the forehead of that old man was constantly flashing out jade light. It thoroughly looked down at Xue Ying: “He actually hasn’t condensed a God Heart? Without condensing a God Heart, he could actually cultivate to the God Monarch realm. Judging from this, he should be a body cultivator. But to reach this stage by relying on his fleshy body? Furthermore, I do not sense any aura of bloodline on him. He should not be a native from the Divine Realm. I can only conclude that he should be an Ascendant from the lower realm!”
“It’s an Ascendant?”
“Hearsay there are many lower realms, yet few could reach our Divine Realm.”
At that moment, everyone began discussing about this newfound conclusion.
There were very few Ascendants in the Divine Realm.
“An Ascendant who hasn’t condensed a God Heart has reached the God Monarch Realm just by cultivating his body.” The cold and strict-looking old man looked at Xue Ying, revealing a smile, “Third Lady, this old servant feels that what Third Lady said is logical. It is worth helping such an expert.”
