Ancient Godly Monarch - Chapter 1518 - The Dao You Cultivate Becoming a Dao Element
In the City of Ancient Emperors, the sun gold race was completely wiped out.
In fact, even that supreme existence died. The fire burning at the peak of the sun mountains ceased, it would never light up again.
Today, countless experts appeared at the peak of the sun mountain. When they saw the headless corpse of the gigantic body of the supreme gold sun crow, all of them felt a shock from the depths of their soul.
This, was the City of Ancient Emperors. This was the brand new era? With the rise of geniuses, elites among them would definitely be born. And for those who rose up, they were destined to trample upon the bones of others? How many supreme characters would share the fate of the golden sun crow? Being beheaded as his blood flowed down the mountain, dying the mountain path a bright golden.
This might very well be one of the best eras, but it would also be one of the cruelest ones. Even if you are a legendary character, you might have a high chance to fall.
In the past, the Yama King was already an example. Now, the supreme demon from the sun gold race has died. In the future, would it be the current number one in the City of Ancient Emperors, Qin Wentian? Can he escape this calamity?
Who, would be able to tell for sure?
This tyrannical race of greater demons from the desolate mountains was completely annihilated in the span of a single day. Even the supreme greater demon with the most outstanding talent among them, was buried in the City of Ancient Emperors.
This news soon swept through the City of Ancient Emperors, shocking countless experts.
After Qin Wentian, another name circulated around. Everyone knew of this name. This man was also from the immortal realms but he wasn’t from any of the major powers. This man was an unaffiliated cultivator and had followed his master in cultivation. However, his master died in the hands of the golden sun crows. The fruit of the karma of back then, was finally sown.
Hua Taixu became a character on par with Qin Wentian in the span of a single day.
After the news of the gold sun race being completely exterminated, the other demons from the desolate mountains no longer dared to act so domineeringly in the City of Ancient Emperors. They were much more restrained in their behavior and no longer dared to kill humans so easily.
That year in the past, Qin Wentian defeated all the supreme greater demons. Today, Hua Taixu annihilated an entire race. These were like warnings to them, telling them that the humans of the immortal realms might be so powerful that they couldn’t afford to antagonize them.
After learning of the news, Qin Wentian also felt shocked in his heart. Back then, the Myriad Manifestations Immortal King took Hua Taixu as her disciple. At that time, to them all, the Myriad Manifestations Immortal King was a high up and lofty existence. Never did he expect that she would eventually fall in love with Hua Taixu and would die in the City of Ancient Emperors. Her death clearly caused a great impact to Hua Taixu. For revenge, he annihilated an entire race. How imposing was that?
Today, on a huge rock of a certain mountain. Two humans sat facing each other, chatting as they drank wine.
One of them, although his aura was retracted, his eyes glowed with spirit. This person was Qin Wentian.
As for the other, he was dressed in white and had a very handsome appearance. His eyes were like the starry sky and this man was none other than the Grand Apostle of the Apostle Devil Hall.
“Qin Wentian, do you know that now, in the City of Ancient Emperors, everyone is comparing you with Hua Taixu as equals.” The apostle laughed. The two of them seemed to be old friends, and were extremely casual.
They truly could be considered friends. During these years when Qin Wentian was cultivating here, the apostle would frequent here to chat and drink with him. They were long familiar with each other.
“Hua Taixu is naturally worthy, since he could annihilate an entire race of demons, including a supreme character at the peak. Even if the people of the city placed him above me, there’s nothing strange about it.” Qin Wentian laughed, he didn’t really care for this at all. This was just illusory fame, what he wanted was true strength to deal with the incoming calamity.
“You are too humble. If my judgement isn’t wrong, you should only be at the initial-phase of the peak-stage during the battle back then. Now, your cultivation has already reach the late-phase and your strength is incomparable to the past. If you can turn back time, that supreme golden sun crow most probably wouldn’t even be able to withstand a single strike from you. If you personally act, you could also easily annihilate an entire race of demons.” The apostle laughed.
“So what about it? You should know how many major powers I have offended. As long as I exit the city, I have to worry about my life. Right now, are the people of the city not discussing how long I can live for?” Qin Wentian smiled, as though he wasn’t talking about himself.
“Calamities are determined by the heavens. If time can reverse and you know that your identity as the Saber-Sword Immortal King would be exposed. Would you offend less people?” The apostle asked.
“No.” Qin Wentian shook his head, there was no need even for him to contemplate the question. He long had an answer. The Paragon Sword Sect, the Skymist Immortal Empire, Zi Daolong and the rest all wanted his life. Even if he used his original identity to deal with them, he definitely wouldn’t have shown mercy as well. As for the Yama King of Senluo, he wanted him to kneel in apology and become his follower. Between the two of them, one had to die for sure, let alone for the fact that he also needed the boost in emperor’s fate. With regards to killing the demons of the three races, the demons started this by making a move on Qing`er and the Southern Phoenix Clan. Undoubtedly, this also made it so that between him and Jia Huangtian, only one could survive.
Everything, even if time was reversed, there would be no changes. Humans living in the immortal realms have no choice but to follow what fate dictates. Many things would always be out of your expectations. He had no regrets.
The apostle laughed after he heard Qin Wentian’s words. He lifted his wine cup and took a drink. “Hence, we shouldn’t dwell on matters of the past but should face what is going to happen in the future. One day, when you have no paths left to you, there’s still a place you can head to.”
Qin Wentian stared at him as he laughed, “The devil mountain?”
“That’s precisely it.” The apostle nodded. “You’ve obtained the inheritance of the Myriad Devil Sovereign. Although your current strength isn’t strong enough, but you should already be powerful enough to obtain the recognition from all the supreme devil halls. Although there might be some who outcast you due to your identity as an immortal realm cultivator, you needn’t care about them. From a certain perspective, since you obtained the Myriad Devil Sovereign’s inheritance, you are already considered his successor. The devil cultivators wouldn’t take the initiative to make a move against you. If you head to the devil mountain, no one in the immortal realms would dare to barge into the Myriad Devil Islands to hunt you down.”
“This is really a good suggestion.” Qin Wentian laughed. The immortal emperors of the immortal realms didn’t dare to enter the Myriad Devil Islands. Even though the era has changed, those immortal emperors most probably still wouldn’t dare to do so.
The apostle inclined his head, staring at the light cascading down from the air. He smiled, “Seems like you really plan not to accept the inheritances of any dao elements.”
“If I accept the inheritance of a dao element, I would be bound by the City of Ancient Emperors. Let alone the fact that even now, I still don’t fully understand what the dao elements entail. If I accept it, I might regret the consequences.” Qin Wentian inclined his head and calmly replied.
“That’s fine as well. The inheritance of the Myriad Devil Sovereign by itself should already surpass these dao elements.” The apostle laughed. Qin Wentian nodded. The inheritance of the Myriad Devil Sovereign was terrifying indeed. All devils had to submit before him. It was able to subdue all cultivators of the devil-path. But as to how strong it is exactly, he still had no idea now.
He also didn’t know how strong the inheritances of the dao elements are. Hence, he couldn’t make a good comparison.
“Let’s not talk about this. Given your current cultivation base, I believe you shouldn’t be too far from the immortal emperor realm. Do you have any insights?” The apostle asked again.
Qin Wentian shook his head, “The emperor realm is still extremely mysterious to me. I don’t think it would be so easy for me to break through.”
“It isn’t that profound. After all, the king and emperor realm can be considered as one great realm. There isn’t any qualitative evolution involved. It shouldn’t be too hard to break through. Given your talent, when your cultivation level reaches the peak, things should flow naturally for you.” The apostle seemed extremely confident in Qin Wentian.
From Celestial Phenomenon to Immortal-Foundation, that can be considered a qualitative evolution. Law energy would be birthed, as their immortal-foundations were established. From immortal-foundation to the immortal king realm, that is also a qualitative evolution. One’s law energy would be saturated to the point where a body of laws is formed, they would also have access to more power, easily consolidating their law domains. However, in comparison, the immortal king level and immortal emperor level, are actually considered the same realm. It was just that immortal emperors had power far above immortal kings because they could form resonances with their astral constellations, borrowing the pure force of laws to infuse their bodies.
Although their strength would explosively increase, there was no change to the base. Hence, it cannot be considered a qualitative evolution.
“Let’s hope so.” Qin Wentian stared up at the sky.
The apostle glanced at him. He stood up and laughed, “People say that emperors are the masters and immortal kings are slaves to them. Although they belong to the same realm, the distance between them is immeasurable. But even so, I really want to see if you can slay immortal emperors while you are at the immortal king realm, given how extraordinary your combat prowess is.”
“Emperors can resonate with their astral constellations in the nine heavenly layers. The amount of law energy they have access to is far superior to immortal kings. How difficult must it be for an immortal king to kill an immortal emperor.” A gleam of sharpness flashed in Qin Wentian’s eyes.
“It’s difficult, but it doesn’t mean that there’s no hope. You yourself, are clearly hope itself.” The apostle laughed. After that, his silhouette flashed as he directly soared into the air, departing the area. His voice drifted over with the wind, “Let alone the fact that since you know the basic abilities of immortal emperors, why don’t you try to comprehend some unique energy that can counter emperors?”
Qin Wentian glanced at the vanished figure. He then turned his glance to the light cascading down from the dao element in the sky. Qin Wentian soared into the air and directly basked himself in the radiance of the dao element. However, he didn’t accept the energy into his body and didn’t cultivate it. He merely quietly stood there, sensing it silently.
Below him, Qing`er appeared at the place where he was at earlier. She inclined her head and stared at his figure in the air. How handsome was Qin Wentian now? He was extremely dazzling and despite the resplendent radiance of the dao element, it wasn’t able to seize away the light belonging to Qin Wentian.
“Today, the radiance of the dao elements shine down on you. Who knows, there may come a time in the future where the dao you cultivate becomes a dao element.” Qing`er smiled sweetly as she murmured.
