Chapter 1608: Heretical God Force
A golden glint flashed in Golden Winged Celestial Peng’s eyes but he did not pursue them.
Yi Yun was quite a tricky opponent. Furthermore, Divineheart had thrown out disk arrays before his escape. Those were enough to stop him and Ghost Ming for a while.
If they were elsewhere, they were confident of catching up to Yi Yun and kill him. But here, the laws were strange and there were unknown dangers lurking everywhere. Pursuing Yi Yun posed an immense risk.
“It’s no wonder Yi Yun was so calm. It’s because his strength is already this great. This person is not to be spared!” Golden Winged Celestial Peng said in a heavy voice.
He looked at Ghost Ming who had an ashen expression. Not only had Yi Yun taken the upper hand against him, he had even been ridiculed by Divineheart.
However, he too had the same apprehensions as Golden Winged Celestial Peng. Yi Yun was very difficult to handle. If things came to blow, he was unsure if he could easily kill Yi Yun.
Ghost Ming shot a glance at Golden Winged Celestial Peng and grunted coldly. He phased away into a dark cloud before vanishing instantly.
Golden Winged Celestial Peng stood at this spot for a moment before transforming into a golden beam of light that shot straight into the vast space.
Compared to killing Yi Yun, obtaining the Heavenly Dao fragment was of utmost priority.
“That Ghost Monarch isn’t likely to chase after you.” Bai Yueyin’s voice sounded in Yi Yun’s mind.
Yi Yun stopped as well as he surveyed his surroundings. “Yes. It’s just a question where the Heavenly Dao fragment is.”
The space he was in was very huge. The fog limited his perception, so his perception was useless for large distances.
However, Yi Yun had the Purple Crystal vision and that made things very different.
The moment Yi Yun activated his Purple Crystal vision, he immediately searched his surroundings. Perhaps, there was a chance of him finding the Heavenly Dao fragment.
Apart from Yi Yun, it was difficult for others to traverse the space without worry. Everyone knew that there was danger in the fog.
Yi Yun was slightly alarmed the moment he activated his energy vision. He saw that at the boundaries of the world he was in, there was a concealed brilliance that surged into the sky.
The brilliance was energy that stemmed from the pocket world and the pocket world was drawing its energies from the God Confusion Valley.
This was a worldly array that was a system in and of itself.
The array was naturally the work of the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch.
“Oh? Could that energy fluctuation be the Heavenly Dao fragment…”
A purple blob of light appeared in Yi Yun’s vision. The energy intensity it contained left him astonished.
Fifteen minutes later, Yi Yun arrived at where the purple blob of light was, thanks to the Purple Crystal’s guidance.
He sensed that there was a fervent energy sealed underground.
“It seems Senior Lin did not only leave behind a Heavenly Dao fragment back then.” Yi Yun guessed as he took out Mirage Snow. The firm ground was sliced apart by Mirage Snow like it was mud.
Soon, Yi Yun dug up a massive hole, and surprisingly, there were points of light lining the inner walls of the hole.
“They are all Chaos Ores…”
Yi Yun observed them for a moment. He suspected that the Chaos Ores were a later formation. Back when the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch opened up the pocket world, the energy within the pocket world reached an extremum. The soil drew on the energy essence and transformed into Chaos Ores.
Although these Chaos Ores were of extremely high quality, Yi Yun was not lacking in Chaos Ores. He was in no hurry to harvest them.
When Yi Yun continued digging downwards, he was surprised to see a crystal-shaped item that emitted resplendent light. It was crystalline like jade and it contained a wisp of pure energy within as though it would be released upon summoning it.
“This is… a naturally formed Chaos Crystal?”
Even Bai Yueyin’s tone had a hint of astonishment. Naturally formed Chaos Crystals were far more valuable than refined Chaos Crystals.
There was no way to remove all the impurities in a Chaos Crystals refined by artificial means; however, naturally formed Chaos Crystal were pure and flawless. Their energies were even purer and they even contained a sliver of the worldly laws.
This was not something a refined Chaos Crystal could compare with.
“It is extremely difficult for Chaos Crystals to form naturally. It’s not enough to just have rich mineral vein energies. This place likely has special worldly laws and they were produced through these nomological forces…”
As Bai Yueyin spoke, Yi Yun had discovered that a faint purple glow suffused the Chaos Crystal.
Sensing something, he began slicing apart the Chaos Crystal bit by bit.
When these resplendent Chaos Crystal layers were taken away by Yi Yun, he saw a Chaos Crystal the size of a human’s head. And sealed in the middle of the Chaos Crystal was a purple snake the length of a finger.
The tiny snake was swimming constantly, a testament of its immense vitality.
However, Yi Yun recognized it at a glance. It was not a snake, but… a bolt of lightning!
The Dao Originator Celestial Thearch had sealed a bolt of lightning in here!?
The bolt of lightning had already taken form. Perhaps the amount of lightning essence the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch had sealed was not a lot, but now, after billions of years, it drew on the worldly essences and began transforming itself, turning more sentient and spiritual.
Could it be that…
Yi Yun suddenly recalled his meeting with Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness. He had told him something—
Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness had said that the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch had developed his strength in the 33 Skies. When he first embarked on his martial path, he obtained a cultivation technique known as the Heretical God Force.
Due to the Heretical God Force, a Heretical God Seed was born within the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch’s body. And this Heretical God Seed was the amalgamation of the forces of thunder and fire!
Lightning and Fire were the two laws that the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch was extremely proficient in back then. The Heretical God Force was the longest cultivation technique he used in his martial journey! This cultivation technique was extremely powerful to begin with, but after it was modified by him, it became even more impressive.
The Heretical God Fire Seed, which Yi Yun obtained, was a fire essence that was derived from the Heretical God Seed and had been left behind by the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch back when he left the Sinkhole universe.
And now, this purple lightning gave Yi Yun ideas.
The Dao Originator Celestial Thearch had left behind a wisp of fire essence, so naturally, he could leave behind a wisp of lightning essence.
Yi Yun previously did not develop this line of thinking. After all, it was already very difficult for him to obtain the Heretical God Fire Seed. He never expected to also obtain the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch’s lightning essence.
“It’s truly fated. You already have the Heretical God Fire and now you have found the Heretical God Lightning. Just the Heretical God Fire is not very potent, but if you combine them together, their strength increases exponentially. It can be said that you have taken up all of Senior Lin’s mantle.”
When Bai Yueyin said this, she wore a conflicted look. Yi Yun’s achievements at present was almost on par with the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch’s back when he was young. He truly deserved the title of successor to the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch.
As Bai Yueyin spoke, she saw Yi Yun focusing on the Heretical God Lightning which was sealed inside the Chaos Crystal.
“Senior Bai, how do you think this Heretical God Lightning compares with the Lightning of Heavenly Punishment?”
Yi Yun’s sentence which was delivered without rhyme or reason left Bai Yueyin stunned. She immediately understood Yi Yun’s idea. “You plan on… using the Heretical God Lightning to temper your body!?”
