Chapter 469: Entering the Tower
To be ranked third from the last did sound quite bad.
This made Yi Yun wonder what sort of people could be ranked “Shura” or “Canonized God”?
Lin Xintong’s talent was the highest amongst all the people Yi Yun had seen so far. Furthermore, she was determined and dedicated in her pursuit of martial arts. However, she was only a “Soul”.
In the history books, there were only descriptions of the ancient Great Empress. They were about how powerful she was, but as for how fearsome she was, there were no records to use as reference.
This was because the ancient Great Empress was indisputably the number one person of her generation. No one could compare to her.
Now, using the God Advent Tower’s standards, Yi Yun could tell that the ancient Great Empress was a lot stronger than the most extreme descriptions of her in the history books. Her strength probably far exceeded the understanding of the Tian Yuan world.
After Lin Xintong, there were many people who went up for their evaluation. After a dark horse like Yi Yun’s evaluation and Lin Xintong’s exaggerated evaluation, some people still carried a glimmer of hope that they might luckily obtain a high evaluation.
However, they were all disappointed.
After Lin Xintong, the Great Empress mystic realm resumed its harshness.
A large number of people obtained evaluations of: Failed to meet the mark!
Figures like Gongsun Hong, who valued their pride greatly, only went up to the crystal pillar with jittery feelings once a lot of the participants were done with their evaluations.
As an extremely prideful person, it was a great psychological test to complete a test that he did not have much confidence in and in full view of others.
Gongsun Hong took a few deep breaths before cutting his finger to write his name down.
However… there was no miracle…
Gongsun Hong received a ‘Knight” evaluation.
Seeing the “Knight” text appear, Gongsun Hong had indescribable feelings.
From Shentu Nantian’s situation, he was at most a “Knight” considering how his talent was lacking compared to Shentu Nantian, so the evaluation was reasonable. However, Gongsun Hong found it hard to accept as it was frustrating when compared to Yi Yun who he had despised in the past.
Other than Gongsun Hong, people like Panther Lady and the youth with the large bag on his back, obtained the evaluation of “Knight”. However, just as the evaluations were almost done, an incident happened.
Two people obtained “Grandmaster”!?
These two people had gone up together and they were clearly together. They were dressed in gray long robes that were embroidered with a blood-red crescent. However, most people were unsure which faction the logo symbolized.
“Another ‘Grandmaster’, and there are two of them! Where did these two guys come from?”
People were alarmed. There were really all sorts of hidden dragons amongst them. Two people, who they did not know, had obtained the evaluation of “Grandmaster”.
Lin Xintong’s eyebrows ticked up as she glanced at them with an odd look.
From a certain point of view, obtaining the evaluation of “Grandmaster” was not that surprising. If Shentu Nantian had not been screwed over by Yi Yun, he would definitely have obtained the evaluation of “Grandmaster”.
However, with two “Grandmaster” evaluations obtained consecutively from two people from the same faction of unknown origins, it was weird.
“Yi Yun, I think something is amiss… ” Lin Xintong transmitted her voice. Yi Yun faltered slightly because he had the same feeling.
This opening of the Great Empress mystic realm was like a heavy rock thrown into a pool that had agitated the dragons and snakes that were lurking in the depths of the pool. It was like there was a riotous revelry amongst the dragons and snakes.
Yi Yun could not tell if it was a blessing or a curse with the appearance of these people.
“All the evaluations have been completed. Now, you may enter the God Advent Tower and begin cultivating!”
The cold voice of the Great Empress mystic realm echoed in everybody’s ears. At the same time, the crystal pillar also slowly sank into the ground and the black stoned square was restored.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
A low dull voice echoed as the entrance to the God Advent Tower slowly opened. Seeing this scene, people held their breaths.
As the stone door opened, it was like opening a door to another world. A vast mysterious aura surged out of the entrance.
It was as if passing through the stone door gave the participants access to all sorts of Great Dao and understandings.
People suspected the God Advent Tower to be a huge treasure left behind by the ancient Great Empress. No one knew what was inside.
Everyone was full of anticipation as they were about to enter the God Advent Tower. After all, this round was cultivation. The Great Empress mystic realm might provide them with cultivation resources.
Since they were cultivation resources left behind by the Great Empress, it was bound to be extraordinary.
If they were free to use it, they would benefit greatly!
“Let’s go in!”
Shentu Nantian was the first to walk through the stone door. He did not wish to stand on the black stoned square any longer. He was eager to cultivate in the God Advent Tower and prove himself with cultivation.
After Shentu Nantian, the others also entered the God Advent Tower.
The stone door to the God Advent Tower seemed to have a silver membrane lining it. It quivered gently and was like a layer of moving mercury.
When Yi Yun passed through the silver membrane, he felt a cold sensation assault him. Following that, he entered a dim great hall.
The cultivators who had entered before him were all gathered here.
A hundred foot tall black statue stood in the middle of the great hall.
The statue looked ancient and solemn. It was carved in the form of a woman wearing soft armor. She held a long sword with the sword tip angled towards the ground, exuding an indescribable divine aura, as if she was a god herself.
When people focused on the statue’s face, they were surprised that no matter how much they focused, they were unable to see her face clearly. It was as if the face of the statue was blurred in an unknown space-time dimension.
“Mysterious statue… ”
“It’s just a statue, yet, it contains laws that we find difficult to comprehend.”
The cultivators began to discuss the statue. Standing in front of the statue, they felt like the statue was moving upwards in a limitless fashion. It was like a mountain peak that could not be scaled, making them feel tiny.
“Maybe, this is the ancient Great Empress’ statue.”
Yi Yun transmitted his voice to Lin Xintong. Lin Xintong nodded, “It’s her… I can feel it.”
“Oh?” Yi Yun was stunned as he looked at Lin Xintong with surprise.
“In the mental demons test, I had felt it… ”
Lin Xintong said faintly. As she recalled the experience in the test, she felt mixed emotions. That was not just a test, it was also a journey for her soul.
In that repeated life cycle that seemed real and fake, dream or awake, she had obtained too much inspiration.
These inspirations could be considered a precious gift given to her by the Great Empress mystic realm.
