Chapter 1351: Demons-Slayed Points
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
With the departure of the Budur Ancient Clan gang, the tense atmosphere in the Great Thousand House dissipated. Many of the Demon Slayers heaved a sigh of relief. If these Heavenly Sovereigns had really started a battle there, even they would be caught in between.
The spirit magma that flowed around Scarlet Flame Deity’s body gradually receded. He turned around and appraised Mu Chen strangely. He immediately laughed at House Master Lu beside him and said, “I didn’t expect the Great Thousand Palace to acknowledge his identity. In that case, did Mu Chen just become the weakest Demon Slayer King in the history of the Great Thousand Palace?”
Under normal circumstances, to become a Demon Slayer King, one should be able to counter a Heaven Demon Emperor, but Mu Chen was clearly far from being able to do that. House Master Lu rolled his eyes at the Scarlet Flame Deity, then turned to Mu Chen and said, “Follow me.” Judging from his demeanor, he obviously had something to say to Mu Chen.
Mu Chen nodded and clasped his fists to Granny He, thanking her for her help. He then quickly caught up with House Master Lu.
Following behind House Master Lu, the two men entered the Great Thousand House. In a hall, House Master Lu turned around and stared at Mu Chen. Slowly, he said, “Mu Chen, the headquarters of the Great Thousand Palace has recognized your identity as a Demon Slayer King, but… because your own strength is still weak, the Great Thousand Palace is unable to give you the rights of a Demon Slayer King.”
Upon hearing this, Mu Chen was not surprised, and he gave a slight nod. He was not a fool, so he would not think that if he happened to be promoted to Demon Slayer King, he would really be able to enter the higher echelons of the Great Thousand Palace. With that role came the right to mobilize the Sovereigns of the Great Thousand Palace.
With its immense power, the power structure of the Great Thousand Palace was also quite clear. A Demon Slayer King had powerful rights and status. If Mu Chen were a Divine Heavenly Sovereign, the Great Thousand Palace would certainly welcome him to join. But unfortunately, he was only a Half Step to Complete Earthly Sovereign, and this strength was obviously not enough to support him in the Great Thousand Palace to enjoy the power of a Demon Slayer King. If he did so forcefully, he would bring trouble upon himself. After all, no one would listen to the command of a Demon Slayer King who was a mere Half Step to Complete Earthly Sovereign.
Seeing Mu Chen nod calmly, House Master Lu was a little surprised. “You can accept it?”
Mu Chen smiled and said, “I understand the Great Thousand Palace’s rules. If I really wanted to be this Demon Slayer King, I would only humiliate myself.”
An impressed glint flashed in House Master Lu’s gaze. Although Mu Chen was young, he was not arrogant and knew his own limitations. He was aware of what he should dabble in and what he should not.
“But you don’t have to be upset. You don’t have the rights of a Demon Slayer King, but your role is acknowledged. No matter what, anyone who wants to touch you has to worry about offending the Great Thousand Palace. And as soon as you have the strength and you are willing to come to the Great Thousand Palace, I will always grant you the power of Demon Slayer King,” House Master Lu said.
“I’ll thank you first then.” Mu Chen clasped his fists and smiled. He was not at all dissatisfied with the decision, and he was grateful that they had been able to help him out.
House Master Lu smiled and said, “In addition, although you did become a Demon Slayer King by a stroke of luck, your Demons-Slayed points accumulated are legitimate.”
Mu Chen was stunned, and surprise surfaced in his eyes. “House Master, do you mean that I can use these Demons-Slayed points?”
In the Great Thousand Palace, one could get a lot of treasures. There were all kinds of Sacred Artifacts of different levels, Sovereign Celestial Bodies, Spiritual Pills, and even Rare Super Powers, so they were absolutely precious gains.
In the past, because of the fear that his title of Demon Slayer King had come by chance, Mu Chen had never thought that these points would be useful, but now House Master Lu clearly meant that he could exchange them for treasures.
Seeing Mu Chen’s surprise, House Master Lu nodded with a smile, then turned to the inner hall. “Come with me.”
Mu Chen followed with rapturous glee. Following behind House Master Lu, they shuttled through a few halls and finally came to a closed storeroom. With a wave of his sleeve, the bronze gate bloomed with a bright Spiritual Light. The gate creaked and slowly opened. As the door opened, a brilliant light shined on their faces, and Mu Chen could not even open his eyes fully.
When he looked closely, he could not help but gasp. Crystal balls were suspended in the huge storeroom, and each crystal ball contained a treasure emitting a dazzling light. The items were clearly extraordinary.
Mu Chen looked at that storehouse full of treasure and could not help but praise, “It’s the Great Thousand Palace, indeed.” The Great Thousand Palace was worthy of being a top supreme force. Just a branch had such a rich treasury, and this was something an ordinary force could never hope to compare to.
House Master Lu brought Mu Chen in and smiled. “The crystal balls are marked with their prices. If they catch your eye, as long as you have enough Demons-Slayed points, they can be exchanged.”
Mu Chen’s gaze was heated as he quickly stepped forward, his eyes sweeping through the crystal balls. “High Grade Sacred Object, Heavenly Flame Spear, 800 Demons-Slayed points… Complete Super Power, minor Light Fingers, 1,100 Demons-Slayed points… Blooming Trees in Spring Body, 99 Sovereign Celestial Bodies, ranked 39th, 1,300 Demons-Slayed points…
In the crystal balls, all kinds of precious treasures were dazzling and marveling. However, at his present stage, normal High Grade Sacred Objects and Complete Super Powers could no longer impress him. “House Master Lu, do you have any more advanced ones?” Mu Chen asked.
He smiled and pointed to the area on the left, saying, “Most of those are Quasi-Rare Divine Artifacts. I think they should suit you.”
In general, most of the Rare Divine Artifacts belonged to Heavenly Sovereigns, so Quasi-Rare Divine Artifacts were the strongest for those who had not yet broken through to Heavenly Sovereign.
Upon hearing this, Mu Chen quickly stepped forward. He was extremely interested in the Quasi-Rare Divine Artifacts. After all, the power of the Celestial Emperor Sword had been exhausted, and he really needed to have a high-grade treasure on hand.
He stopped by a crystal ball the size of a man’s head and looked at it. He saw a black whip rotating slowly, full of thorns and flickering with a cold light. Above the whip, each section seemed to be engraved with ancient runes. As it writhed, it emanated a mystical aura.
“Hmm?” Mu Chen looked at the black whip and let out a sound of surprise, as he felt a slight familiarity.
Beside him, House Master Lu smiled and explained, “This whip is called the God Binding Whip, a Quasi-Rare Divine Artifact. It is made from the branches and leaves of the Ancient Mandala flower, which must have reached the rank of a Heavenly Sovereign.”
“Oh, it’s made from the branches and leaves of the Mandala flower.” No wonder he felt familiar with it. It was a precious treasure, and if it were given to Mandela, it would surely exert a great power in her hands.
After leaving Holy Gulf City, Mu Chen decided to go back to Tianluo Continent. After all, the Mu Estate had not been established for long, and if he was absent for a long time, even with Mandela’s help, people’s loyalty would waver. This God Binding Whip was a gift to Mandela. After all, it was hard work to help him manage the Mu Estate.
Mu Chen glanced at the price. Two thousand Demons-Slayed points was in his acceptable range. He immediately took out the Demon Slayer Token and waved it at that crystal ball. Light flashed as the crystal ball slowly floated towards him, and then he put it away with a wave.
He moved on, and soon, he saw something else. It seemed to be an exquisite crystal earring, and the pendant contained an emerald green liquid. It was the strange liquid that made the earring unique.
“Young man, your taste is good. This is the Celestial Spirit Chalcedony, which is the spiritual power between heaven and earth. It has been compressed for thousands of years under the earth.
“When worn, it can greatly enhance the speed of cultivation. It can be considered a wonderful treasure to assist in cultivation. However, it is useless to Heavenly Sovereigns, so it can only be classified as a Quasi-Rare Divine Artifact.” House Master Lu saw Mu Chen’s gaze and laughed.
Mu Chen pondered. This Celestial Spirit Chalcedony was obviously very suitable for Luo Li. At this time, she was only a Lower Earthly Sovereign, but this would benefit her greatly in terms of cultivation. He looked at the exchange price. It was 3,000 Demons-Slayed points, which surprised him a little. It seemed that this kind of cultivation treasure, as expected, was more valuable. However, for Luo Li, it was worth it. Therefore, with a wave of his hand, he took it.
House Master smiled and said, “Smart lad. You’re generous to make your little lady smile.” Such an item was obviously used by women, and this was clearly a gift to his lover.
Listening to his teasing, Mu Chen also smiled. He took a look at the Demon Slayer Token. It had been only a short while, and he had spent half of his points, which made him secretly shocked. This amount of Demons-Slayed points was really not enough to spend. No wonder so many Demon Slayers had spent so much time on the Holy Gulf Continent to earn points.
“Now I can see if there are any Quasi-Rare Divine Artifacts suitable for me.” Mu Chen pondered for a moment, then with some anticipation, continued to explore. After looking for a long time, his footsteps slowly stopped. He looked at the crystal ball beside him in astonishment. There was no Quasi-Rare Divine Artifact in it, but there was a jelly-like golden liquid flowing slowly through it. A mystical wave emanated from the golden liquid.
“This is…” Mu Chen squinted as a glint of doubt emerged in his eyes. “Varja Spirit Destroying Plasma?”
