Chapter 1521: Grand Primordium Royal Seal
Translator: CKtalon Editor: CKtalon
“Fire Cloud Divine Lord left his Divine Lord Royal Seals behind. I wonder what the situation is for Primordial Chaos Daolord.”
Yi Yun knew that these Sinkhole powerhouses were able to be hegemons largely because they were peerless geniuses in their youth. They had extremely robust foundations and encountered immense opportunities. Not just that, their Divine Lord Royal Seals exceeded those of others.
Primordial Chaos Daolord’s Divine Lord Royal Seal definitely wasn’t a low-quality item.
When Yi Yun scanned Primordial Chaos Daolord’s corpse in search of the Divine Lord Royal Seal inside his dantian, he discovered that the Royal Seal’s energy was slowly dissipating.
With Primordial Chaos Daolord dead, it did not take long for the Divine Lord Royal Seal in his dantian to lose its luster.
This left Yi Yun somewhat disappointed.
From the looks of it, Primordial Chaos Daolord had condensed his own Divine Lord Royal Seal.
Divine Lord Royal Seals had three sources.
The first type was made after a warrior broke through to become a Divine Lord. They could condense their own Divine Lord Royal Seal, which had its pros and cons. It depended on the warrior’s strength. If one had particularly profound nomological insight, the Royal Seal condensed would naturally be even more powerful. But if the creator of such a Royal Seal died, the Royal Seal would slowly dissipate due to losing its energy source.
Primordial Chaos Daolord was in such a situation.
However, if Primordial Chaos Daolord had lived to become sufficiently powerful, so powerful that he could break through to the Godly Monarch realm, then his own laws would have been akin to the Heavenly Dao. Then, the Divine Lord Royal Seal he condensed would transform. Even after death, a Godly Monarch’s Royal Seal would still remain indestructible for hundred of millions of years.
These Godly Monarch Royal Seals could be inherited, becoming the second source of Royal Seals!
Fire Cloud Divine Lord’s Phoenix Royal Seals were of this second type. The ice and fire phoenixes had strength that was in no way weaker than an ancient Godly Monarch’s. Even rarer was their paired existence. To obtain a pair of such Royal Seals was truly one of the best opportunities.
Typically speaking, the former of the two kinds of Royal Seals was considered inferior to the latter. This was because nearly no one had nomological insights that could match that of an ancient Godly Monarch. The Royal Seals they condensed were thus always lacking in quality.
However, there is nothing absolute in the world. If the owner of the condensed Royal Seal were the type of genius that appears once in a hundred million years, they could break through to become a Godly Monarch through sheer talent. It would make the Royal Seal they condensed transform into a Godly Monarch Royal Seal. In that case, the quality of such a Royal Seal would exceed the first type. This was because a Royal Seal nurtured by oneself was better than something left behind by others. Something made by you, for you was naturally more suitable!
Primordial Chaos Daolord had taken the same path, hoping to condense his own Divine Lord Royal Seal to eventually break through to the Godly Monarch realm.
“This Primordial Chaos Daolord was very ambitious. Unfortunately, he died under my hand. If not, he might have really broken through to become a Godly Monarch. If he only continued cultivating, he wouldn’t have had a problem becoming the strongest second to Godly Monarchs.”
Yi Yun knew that Primordial Chaos Daolord was considered extremely young among the Sinkhole powerhouses! He had a limitless future ahead of him; however, this was the path of the Martial Dao. Godly Monarchs of the same generation were destined to reach the pinnacle only by stepping on the corpses of countless failures. Primordial Chaos Daolord was just short by one step, but he had ended up a failure!
Primordial Chaos Daolord’s Royal Seal could not be preserved for long, so it had no value. As for Fire Cloud Divine Lord’s Royal Seals…
Yi Yun looked down at the tiny red and blue phoenixes flying in his palm. If he wanted to, he could fuse with the fire phoenix Royal Sealed Divine Lord after he broke through to the Divine Lord realm. This was an unattainable opportunity for numerous Divine Lords, but Yi Yun had no intention of doing so.
He was ambitious as well. Furthermore, his ambition was greater than Primordial Chaos Daolord’s. He wanted to condense his own Divine Lord Royal Seal and take the first path, or choose the third option, which was also the last method of obtaining a Divine Lord Royal Seal. That was the Grand Primordium Royal Seal.
Legend had it that at the creation of the Universe, Royal Seals could form out of natural processes. These Royal Seals were the Heaven and Earth Great Dao themselves. They were extremely few in number, and were pretty much legend.
The Chaos Gem slip the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch left behind actually had records regarding the Grand Primordium Royal Seals. However, there was no mention of how they could be obtained.
Yi Yun did not pin his hopes on fusing a Grand Primordium Royal Seal. That was something exceedingly rare to chance upon.
Yi Yun continued searching the rest of the treasures Primordial Chaos Daolord and Fire Cloud Divine Lord had. The two Sinkhole powerhouses left behind tremendous wealth.
“These herbal treasures…”
Yi Yun’s eyes lit up. Having cultivated for so long, Yi Yun had seen his fair share of natural treasures. He had extremely high standards, but even so, the herbal treasures found in the two Divine Lord’s interspatial rings still left his heart pounding.
“These are… the fire-ice phoenix’s feathers and bones! Contained within is phoenix blood essence…”
“Oh? There’s also a Vast Emerald Blood Lotus. This must have been sprouted from land which had been soaked in phoenix blood.”
Yi Yun had found all these inside a jade box in Fire Cloud Divine Lord’s interspatial ring.
Without a doubt, back when Fire Cloud Divine Lord found the place where the fire-ice phoenixes got reborn, he had just taken the Divine Lord Royal Seals. He had also obtained the phoenix bone, feathers, as well as the blood lotus. However, he was unwilling to use it. After fusing with the Divine Lord Royal Seal, he stored those items away in his collection.
“He must have left them for breaking through to the Godly Monarch realm.”
Yi Yun knew that for Primordial Chaos Daolord and Fire Cloud Divine Lord to cultivate to this state, the only obsession they had was to break through to become Godly Monarchs. Although it was an arduous path, they had made all sorts of preparations for that.
For that moment when they finally broke through, they had prepared all these treasured herbs to increase their chances.
“Since you weren’t willing to use these things when you were living, I’ve now lucked out. It’s no wonder Primordial Chaos Daolord died with everlasting regret.”
Yi Yun remembered Primordial Chaos Daolord’s final look. The hatred and indignation in his heart made it look like he would jolt back to life.
“These treasures they planned to use to break through to the Godly Monarch realm shall be used by me to break through to the Divine Lord realm. With these things, I do not need to seek out treasured herbs for my future cultivation of the Dragon Emperor Technique.”
Yi Yun was not one to be stingy when it came to spending resources on himself. Since it was left behind by others, he did not feel the pinch at all. He used whatever he had. As for the treasures needed for his future breakthrough to the Godly Monarch realm, he could collect them again.
Yi Yun stored away all the treasured herbs, bones and relics.
Apart from that, Primordial Chaos Daolord and Fire Cloud Divine Lord had left behind quite a sizable number of Godly Monarch Immortal Annuli. There were dozens of them, and naturally, Yi Yun took them all.
As for cultivation technique jade slips and array formation books, Yi Yun only browsed through them casually. He had the heritage left behind by numerous seniors and even the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch. He had no need of these common techniques.
However, Yi Yun looked at the notes Primordial Chaos Daolord had regarding the Primordial Chaos laws, as well as Fire Cloud Divine Lord’s insights into the control of fire. He paid some attention to these, for they were lessons gleaned from Primordial Chaos and Fire Cloud’s life experiences. As Sinkhole powerhouses, the insights into the particular domain they were experts at was still something that could inspire Yi Yun despite him having read all sorts of top heritages.
“These notes are quite useful.”
Apart from the treasured herbs and heritages, there were all sorts of talisman charms, weapons, artifacts, etc. Items that were collected by Primordial Chaos Daolord and Fire Cloud Divine Lord were naturally extraordinary. Yi Yun stored them all away.
He had made a killing from this battle. Indeed, killing and plundering the corpses was the best way of becoming rich.
“Senior River of Forgetfulness, do you know which of the eight ancient Godly Monarchs had obtained a Grand Primordium Royal Seal?”
Yi Yun was still interested in the matter of Divine Lord Royal Seals. With his foundation, he would not need much work to fuse a Divine Lord Royal Seal after he stepped through the gates of being a Divine Lord.
Yi Yun naturally had his sights on the Grand Primordium Royal Seal. In ancient times, there were still records of Grand Primordium Royal Seals in books, but now, they were pretty much extinct.
Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness naturally guessed at what Yi Yun was thinking. He said, “Yi Yun, don’t harp on the matter of Grand Primordium Royal Seals. If you were to reach the pinnacle of the Martial Dao in the future, then the laws you cast will be equivalent to the Heavenly Dao. The Royal Seal you condense would represent the Heavenly Dao. It would then be equivalent to a Grand Primordium Royal Seal.”
“Senior, do you believe I can reach that stage?”
“Others might not be able to, but you have obtained the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch’s heritage. It’s not something impossible. You were able to defeat Sinkhole powerhouses while being a half-step Divine Lord. Although it’s true you took advantage of your terrain, it would still send reverberations throughout the martial world if people learned of it. Perhaps, you have that sliver of hope of following in the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch’s footsteps.”
“My days are numbered. If you wish to cultivate the time laws, my heritage is all inside the Azure Lamp of Time.”
Yi Yun felt a little despondent when Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness said that. Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness’s had little vitality left in him. It was very difficult for him to recover from injuries of that extent.
He could only let Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness continue his slumber inside the Azure Lamp of Time. He could only wait till he was stronger before he could attempt treating Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness’s wounds. But even so, Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness would not have many years left in him.
“Senior River of Forgetfulness, I have another question to ask. Back when the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch left his heritage, how many Godly Monarchs were there? How many survived after the battle with the Ancestor God?”
Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness took a deep breath. His eyes seemed to penetrate hundreds of millions of years, as if he was seeing all the way back to the golden age of the Martial Dao.
He said, “That was an era of starlets; however, there were not many Godly Monarchs in the same generation. The eight ancient Godly Monarchs from the stories were only the eight who participated in the battle with the Ancestor God. However, that battle was overly perilous. Not everyone was willing to risk their lives. According to what I know, there were two Godly Monarchs who did not participate in the battle. Furthermore, both of them vanished after the battle…”
Yi Yun was slightly taken aback as he made a mental note.
He knew that Godly Monarchs had extremely long lives. They were tens of times longer than Sinkhole powerhouses like Primordial Chaos Daolord. They were able to live to this day even if they existed in ancient times.
It was extremely difficult for a Godly Monarch to be produced in the Sinkhole, along with the 12 Empyrean Heavens. But once one came to birth, it was unlikely they would perish. Presently, the number of Godly Monarchs in the Sinkhole was naturally not only limited to Bai Yueyin.
“Senior River of Forgetfulness, have some rest inside the Azure Lamp of Time. I plan on entering seclusion to treat my injuries before I attempt to break through to the Divine Lord realm.”
Yi Yun guessed that Primordial Chaos Daolord and company had only obtained two Chaos Gem armor. That meant he could now seclude himself in peace inside the Chaos Gem mineral vein.
