Book 12 – Immortal Strife (ch1010-1540)
Chapter 1029 Ascensio Immortal Rankings
Finding out that Mu Junlin was one of the six blazing suns of the Immortal Dimension caused the old man and middle aged man to become dazed and exclaim with shock.
To existences like them at the Heavenly Immortal Realm, they probably didn’t have the slightest chance to take a step out of Eastern Peace Continent in their entire lifetimes. Yet now they were actually able to personally witness one of the legendary blazing suns appeared before their eyes, so the shock they received from this was obvious.
Chen Xi was similarly extremely surprised. But when he thought of Mu Junlin’s attitude towards him, the admiration in his heart was completely wiped away, and he felt slightly indifferent.
So what if he’s one of the six blazing suns?
I was taken to be a ‘variant’ by the Heaven Dao, yet didn’t I still forcefully kill my way into the Immortal Dimension?
Perhaps the rumors are true, but so long as I work hard, would anyone dare to determine that I wouldn’t be able to surpass him?
A man’s effort is the decisive factor, and it can conquer the will of the heavens.
Even though Chen Xi wasn’t an arrogant person, he was never one that looked down upon himself.
“If I knew that miss was Mu Junlin’s cousin sister, then I wouldn’t dare allow Lord Meng Xin to take her away that day even if I was killed.” The nearby old man sighed with emotion.
Chen Xi frowned because he slightly disliked Mu Junlin’s actions, or perhaps he was extremely unwilling to hear Mu Junlin’s name at this moment. He asked right away. “What’s the Ascensio Immortal Rankings?”
The old man’s expression turned serious as he replied. “There’s something you don’t know, Young Master. The Ascensio Immortal Rankings embodies the meaning of rising rapidly in the world. The people on the rankings are the most extraordinary geniuses in the 4,900 continents of the Immortal Dimension. In other words, only the name of those that possess extraordinary natural talent and shocking foundations would appear on the Ascensio Immortal Rankings…”
According to the old man, the Ascensio Immortal Rankings were divided into 4,900 rankings according to the number of continents. For example, the Eastern Peace Continent possessed its own Ascensio Immortal Rankings.
This sort of rankings were called Continental Ascensio Rankings.
After all, the Immortal Dimension was truly too vast. Every single one of the 4,900 continents possessed at least 80,000 cities, and there were billions of living beings that resided in each continent.
Obviously, if all the living beings in the Immortal Dimension were to be included, their numbers would be extremely shocking.
It was precisely because of this that the Ascensio Immortal Rankings would be divided into continental rankings and the main immortal rankings.
According to the introduction given by the old man, only the experts of the Immortal Dimension that ranked in the top 100 of the Continental Ascensio Rankings in the 4,900 continents had the qualifications to try to be ranked on the Ascensio Immortal Rankings.
Moreover, they only had the qualifications, and they might not be able to succeed.
According to the records of the past, only a mere ten plus existences that were ranked in the top 100 of the Continental Ascensio Rankings of the Eastern Peace Continent would appear on the Ascensio Immortal Rankings. Moreover, their rankings would be very far behind and be practically at the end.
This was related to the overall strength of the Eastern Peace Continent. Amongst the 4,900 continents in the Immortal Dimension, the Eastern Peace Continent could only be considered to be one of the most ordinary existences, and it was far from being able to compare to the continents that possessed numerous ancient sects residing within them, let alone compare with the four great continents of Valiant Star, Midnight, Icesky, and Profound Path.
This was merely the division in the Ascensio Immortal Rankings. In terms of qualifications to be ranked on the rankings, there were numerous conditions and restriction. The most important condition was that one’s cultivation had to be below the Golden Immortal Realm!
In other words, only Heavenly Immortals and Mysterious Immortals had the qualifications to be ranked in the Ascensio Immortal Rankings.
It seemed to be complicated yet was actually very simple. Only those below the Golden Immortal Realm could be ranked on this ranking, and only those with extraordinary natural talent could leave their names on this ranking.
Something worthy of mention was that regardless of whether it was the Continental Ascensio Rankings or the Ascensio Immortal Rankings, both of them were published by the Immortal Court. Moreover, it was checked and balanced by the Laws of the Heaven Dao, so even Immortal Kings were unable to interfere with it.
After he found out about all of this, Chen Xi finally understood why Mu Junlin would speak with an indisputable tone before he left and frankly say that Chen Xi was unable to enter the Dao Emperor Academy.
The reason was the Ascensio Immortal Rankings. It was extremely difficulty to be ranked on the rankings, let alone be ranked in the top 1,000. That was extremely difficult.
On the other hand, the basic requirement to register one’s self to be tested to enter the Dao Emperor Academy was to be ranked in the top 1,000 of the Ascensio Immortal Rankings. Such harsh conditions were indeed not something that anyone could accomplish.
It was even to the extent that amongst all the myriad of living beings in the entire Immortal Dimension, only a small group of people were able to attain this target, whereas, 99% wouldn’t have the luck to accomplish it.
I never imagined that just entering an academy would have such harsh requirements. This obviously shows how extraordinary the Dao Emperor Academy is. No wonder Senior Sister would say that so long as I entered the academy, even the Zuoqiu Clan wouldn’t dare do anything to me…
After he understood all of this, Chen Xi sighed endlessly with emotion in his heart.
It wasn’t just the Mortal Dimension, even the Immortal Dimension was filled with competition, whereas strength was always standard to judge everything. It was even to the extent that the measurement of strength and status in the Immortal Dimension was even more realistic and cruel than the Mortal Dimension.
Subsequently, Chen Xi received his Immortal Token from the old man, and then he asked for a map before he bid them farewell and left.
“That fellow is finally gone.” The old man let out a sigh of relief while his entire body relaxed. Truthfully speaking, he was really worried that Chen Xi would silence them after obtaining the Immortal Token.
After all, Chen Xi was wanted in the entire Eastern Peace Continent now, and for the sake of preventing his tracks from being exposed, silencing them was extremely likely.
But it just so happened that Chen Xi didn’t do this, and this caused the old man to sigh with emotion from surviving this ordeal.
“This kid is definitely not an ordinary figure. He was able to escape the Azuresoul Mine and become acquainted with Mu Junlin’s cousin sister. This isn’t something an ordinary person can accomplish.” The middle aged man took a few deep breaths and muttered. “Not to mention if we disregard all of this. Merely the fact that he made Immortal Monarch Lin Hao deploy so many forces and issue an order for his capture is sufficient to prove that he’s extraordinary.”
“Exactly, even if it’s in terms of strength, have you seen an ascender become as strong as him after ascending into the Immortal Dimension for a mere few days? We’ve already condensed the energy of the Laws, yet we were actually defeated so easily…” As the old man finished speaking, he couldn’t help but be sulky, but he was mostly filled with shock and had an appearance of being scared stiff.
“Alas. It’s unfortunate that he’ll probably be unable to avoid being apprehended by Immortal Monarch Lin Hao within the Eastern Peace Continent.” The middle aged man sighed.
The old man grunted and said, “Don’t forget that Mu Junlin threatened to go see Immortal Monarch Lin Hao and get even with the Immortal Monarch. Perhaps an unexpected event might occur.”
The middle aged man shook his head and laughed bitterly. “Actually, all of this isn’t related to us at all, right? In the end, we’re only two nobodies that guard the Ascension Hall, so it’s better for us to set our minds at rest and stay here. That kid can be considered to be kindhearted for not silencing us, so we can’t expose him. Otherwise, it would be equivalent to running into this pool of muddy water, and some sort of mishap might occur to us.”
The old man nodded and deeply agreed.
At this moment, Chen Xi had already left the Ascension Hall.
His current objective was to head to the nearest city, Cloudray City, to obtain information related to the teleportation formation. After that, he would leave the Eastern Peace Continent and head to Valiant Star Continent. During this entire process, he naturally had to work hard to be ranked in the Ascensio Immortal Rankings and charge into the top 1,000.
As for Misty Immortal Mountain’s Qiu Yunsheng, he didn’t intend to contact Qiu Yunsheng for now.
After all, this was the Immortal Dimension. Even though Qiu Yunsheng had been subdued by him, Qiu Yunsheng possessed the support of the Misty Immortal Mountain. Once Qiu Yunsheng schemed against him, then he would really be unable to take precautions against it.
Similarly, the Eastern Peace Continent wasn’t a place he could stay for long. Even though he didn’t know why Immortal Monarch Lin Hao would order his arrest, it had already threatened Chen Xi, so if he stayed here, then his situation would only become even more dangerous.
Once I join the Dao Emperor Academy, I’ll start investigating the whereabouts of my parents. Before this, I must improve my strength, otherwise not to mention rescuing them, even gaining a foothold would be difficult…
Chen Xi pondered in his heart as he flew in midair.
He was very clearly aware that he’d just arrived at the Immortal Dimension in the end. So, before he merged completely into the Immortal Dimension, he had to go step by step towards realizing his objective, and he couldn’t be impatient.
I wonder if Cloudray City has an ancient teleportation formation that leads to the other continents? It’s difficult to traverse between continents in the Immortal Dimension with my cultivation.
Chen Xi had already found out that under the Laws of the heavens and the earth in the Immortal Dimension, moving between continents was extremely dangerous. The path was filled with numerous chaotic flows of spacetime and miasma. Once one fell into them, the consequences were unimaginable.
Only an existence at the Golden Immortal Realm was capable of executing teleportation to move between continents without getting lost in between them.
Those beneath the Golden Immortal Realm could only rely on ancient teleportation formations to move between continents.
The ancient teleportation continents had all existed since the primeval times until now. Later on, they were taken control of by the Immortal Court, and they were in the control of the Immortal Monarch Estates of the various continents.
Cloudray City was a city of rather large scale in Eastern Peace Continent, and it was a flourishing and prosperous city where countless cultivators gathered. So gathering information there was far better than him searching blindly.
As he flew, moved through the sky, and viewed the scenery of the Immortal Dimension, Chen Xi silently condensed the Laws.
He didn’t utilize his clone to transport himself, and he’d left it within the world of stars to enter into closed door cultivation to improve its cultivation and charge into the Heavenly Immortal Realm in body refinement. It couldn’t be helped, compared to his main body, the strength of his clone was obviously too weak, so once an unexpected event occurred, it would be utterly unable to avoid such an event.
Even though his clone was able to kill those ascenders like Xiao Yun, Nangong Hui, and the others, yet it was utterly no match for a Heavenly Immortal that had condensed the energy of the Laws.
The Heavenly Immortal Realm in body refinement is the reconstruction of the body, the tempering of the bone and tendons, the condensing of Immortal Shaman Blood. After attaining this cultivation realm, the combat strength my clone possesses will probably be even more formidable than my main body. But it’s a bit too difficult…
Chen Xi recalled the harsh conditions required to advance into the Heavenly Immortal Realm in body refinement, and he couldn’t help but knit his brows together tightly. He has no lack of body refinement cultivation techniques nor did he lack comprehension in Dao Insights, and he only lacked a single thing, sufficient Immortal Shaman Bloodsoul Stones!
