Chapter 893: Heavenly Talisman Realm’s Rewards
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian and the other two stared at the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord, only to hear Jun Mengchen asking, “Senior, my senior apprentice brother Qin obtained first in the thirteen prefecture’s immortal banquet, while I obtained second. Isn’t it a little too exaggerated to say that the people in the City of Ancient Emperors are all monsters on the level equivalent to my senior apprentice brother?”
“There’s no exaggeration at all.” The Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord turned his gaze ahead as he continued with a calm expression, “The immortal realms are boundlessly vast, where experts are as common as clouds. The amount of geniuses it contains is naturally countless in number. Although both of you can stand at the peak of the thirteen prefectures, let me ask you this. Do you feel that your opponent Gusu Tianqi was weak?”
“He’s naturally not weak.” Jun Mengchen replied.
“Then that is correct. Gusu Tianqi can already be considered someone extremely strong. In the future, after he receives the personal guidance of Eastern Sage, his strength would surely climb even higher to another level. Also, the thirteen prefectures you see before you, do they represent the entire immortal realms?” The Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord asked in a faint voice.
“The immortal realms are vast and although immortal emperor experts are powerful, in the perspective of the entire immortal realms, there are naturally quite a number of immortal emperors. For the immortal emperors, there are those who are their direct heirs and also their personal disciples. These people are then the true elites of the younger generations. Let’s take Eastern Sage for an example, he has a lot of sons and daughters, Dongsheng Ting is merely one of them. Which one of his heirs are not outstanding? Also, he has plenty of personal disciples and the weakest among them wouldn’t be in anyway inferior to the top five of the immortal banquet. Have you encountered them before?”
Qin Wentian and Jun Mengchen both froze. Yeah, the immortal banquet didn’t include the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor’s personal disciples and his direct descendants. During the immortal banquet, just the personal disciples of immortal kings were already very strong. Ruthless and Hua Taixu were both ranked within the top ten, but what about the other personal disciples and direct descendants of the immortal kings who didn’t participate? Does it mean that they are all weak?
These people were all over the immortal realms tempering themselves. They had not encountered any of them yet.
“Senior, are you saying that the City of Ancient Emperors is the gathering place for all these geniuses of the younger generation who stand at the peak?” Jun Mengchen asked, feeling shock in his heart. What sort of place was the City of Ancient Emperors exactly?
“You can put it that way. The City of Ancient Emperors is a city that originated from ancient times. It’s said that the founders include ancient emperors of the primordial era and there are many ancient secrets hidden within. From ancient times until now, there have been countless batches of people heading there hoping to probe the secrets. As time flowed by, the City of Ancient Emperors became a training ground for the geniuses of the younger generations who stand at the peak. Over there, monsters at your level can be found everywhere. Although you two might be outstanding here, the heirs and personal disciples of the immortal emperors and immortal kings wouldn’t be any weaker and many of them are at the peak of Celestial Phenomenon, just a step away from immortality. Given your current cultivation bases…”
The Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord smiled after he spoke. Qin Wentian’s eyes gleamed sharply. Descendants of immortal emperors, no wonder Qing`er was there. As a daughter of the Evergreen Immortal Emperor, it was only logical for her to be sent there for training.
“I’m a little excited.” Jun Mengchen’s eyes gleamed.
Given that the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord was an immortal emperor expert, his speed was inconceivably quick, bringing the three of them as he shuttled through the air. After some time, they came to the airspace above the Cloud Prefecture and a black-robed figure was already waiting for them there. The features of this black-robed figure were totally covered, only revealing his eyes, giving off an indistinct, illusory feeling.
“Is the matter completed?” That black-robed figure asked. The Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord nodded, “Qin Wentian and Jun Mengchen obtained the positions of top and second ranker respectively. I managed to acquire six out of the thirteen prefectures.”
“Mhm, I will take the three of them. You can leave first.” The black-robed figure nodded. The Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord glanced at the three of them as a strange expression could be seen on his face. But an instant later, he nodded and departed the area.
“He has already left. Let’s return to the Heavenly Talisman Realm.” A moment later, the black-robed figure spoke.
“We greet senior brother.” Qin Wentian and the other two could feel the familiar presence of the Heavenly Talisman Realm coming from this man. This senior of theirs was extremely mysterious but seeing that he could directly contact the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord, his cultivation level must be at the immortal emperor level as well.
Back in the Heavenly Talisman Realm, Qin Wentian and Jun Mengchen were brought to a place named the Heavenly Treasures Pagoda. This pagoda emitted a golden light that illuminated the surroundings and only people who had been granted access rights would be given a token which allowed them to enter. The black-robed figure precisely had such a token and this was an indication that he had an extraordinary position within the Heavenly Talisman Realm. Also during the journey, he also introduced himself to them.
The black-robed figure was precisely one of the supervising guardians of the Heavenly Talisman Realm.
Guardians of the Heavenly Talisman Realm monitor everything that happens inside and outside of the Realm. They also pay close attention to disciples and they are also the ones who pursue and kill those who broke the rules of secrecy. They are also responsible for keeping tabs on those who took on missions and upon successful accomplishment of the missions, they would lead those who succeeded into the Heavenly Treasures Pagoda for their reward.
The powerful Heavenly Talisman Realm needed mysterious existences like the supervising guardians to help in the monitoring of disciples and administration matters. Only they would know how many experts this sect contained and what level those experts are at.
The supervising guardians could also be considered envoys of the Heavenly Talisman Realm. They were also the ones in charge of maintaining discipline in the Heavenly Talisman Realm.
This time, the rewards for completing the mission was that they could choose either a treasure, a cultivation art, an innate technique, or a divine weapon from the pagoda.
“The cultivation arts in here are all extremely strong.” Jun Mengchen’s eyes flickered with excitement as he stared at his surroundings.
“The difficulty of this mission was pretty high, so the rewards given would naturally not be too inferior.” Qin Wentian was trying to look around to find something he wanted.
“Nine Immortal War Art, one can create nine battle clones to fight your battles for you.” At this moment, Jun Mengchen’s quiet voice sounded out. His eyes shone with a dazzling light as he spoke, “Senior brother, this Nine Immortal War Art is so powerful, prior to this it looks like I’m nothing but a frog in the well. With this, I can summon nine battle clones to fight with me against opponents simultaneously, making it a ten versus one. This is simply too terrifying.
“Such a powerful cultivation art surely would have its weaknesses. Best to take a closer look at it.” He was skilled in the incarnation burst technique, although he can summon thousands upon thousands of incarnations in an instant, the consumption rate was simply too crazy every time he used it.
“The nine battle clones will sap the energy of the original body. Once the energy supply is used up, they would vanish.” Jun Mengchen read the introduction inscribed on the wall beside it and could be heard mumbling to himself. However, his heart was truly stirred by this. At the very least, in a short period of time, he could have nine more clones together with him. If they attacked simultaneously, he didn’t even dare to imagine how tyrannical the destruction caused would be.
“Senior brother, what do you think? I really want to choose it!” Jun Mengchen was visibly excited as he asked.
“Your heart is too easily excited. There are so many good things around us, why be so hasty?” Qin Wentian remarked in a hushed tone, “This cultivation art is overwhelming, but if you fight against those weaker than you, it would be useless. If you fight against those with speed much higher than you, its use would also be limited. You can only put it to the optimal effect when fighting against opponent not that much stronger. Considering the energy consumption rate, I think you would be better served if you choose to cultivate some other techniques that could increase your overall combat prowess.”
“Mhm, that’s true. Alright I’ll look around then.” Jun Mengchen gave an awkward smile. He was impatient by nature, but luckily his senior apprentice brother Qin Wentian could see the overall situation much clearer than him.
“Immortal Phantasm Diagram, one could use it to create a powerful illusion scape where immortal-level experts would also find it tough to escape. The stronger the one who used it is, the more powerful it will be.” Jun Mengchen and Qin Wentian stared at a treasure as they felt a stirring in their hearts.
As expected of the Heavenly Talisman Realm, the rewards in here are all so valuable.
“How good would it be if we can take all of them away.” Jun Mengchen jested.
“Undying Heaven Calamity Body, this cultivation art can allow one to evolve their physique to a supreme undying body, granting the person unimaginable power, infusing their attacks with the power of heavenly calamities.” Qin Wentian and Jun Mengchen continued to search through the catalog for the rewards they wanted.
“Thousand Cauldron Canonical Text. One can establish immortal cauldrons in their Yuanfus, which would augment their attack power to unfathomable heights.” Qin Wentian saw an innate technique as his heart trembled in excitement, as though he was no longer able to control himself.
There were simply too many good items in the Heavenly Treasures Pagoda. The heartbeats of Qin Wentian and Jun Mengchen quickened as they looked through the catalog. Sadly, they can only choose one item.
“I found it, I’m going to cultivate this technique.” At this moment, Jun Mengchen finally decided on what he wanted.
Qin Wentian turned his gaze over, only to see Jun Mengchen standing there, staring at a stone wall which had the introductory passage of the technique he had chosen.
Myriad World Emperor Art. This immortal art allows one to cultivate emperor force, once the nine levels of this cultivation art are completed, one would have a physique equivalent to an immortal emperor.
This was an extremely tyrannical technique. The introductory passage was only a short few words but since Jun Mengchen has already decided to choose this, Qin Wentian didn’t say anything to dissuade him as well. “Since you’ve decided, do your best to cultivate this.”
“Mhm!” Jun Mengchen nodded. He then closed his eyes and sent his perception into the stone wall. Instantly, all the information regarding this tyrannical technique was imprinted into his mind.
Qin Wentian continued to search for what he wanted. And finally, he came to a place where a unique method was recorded – the Ten Thousand Laws Record.
It was unique because of what the introductory passage wrote: “The Ten Thousand Laws Record isn’t a cultivation art nor an innate technique. One must be very careful when attempting to cultivate this. This record touches on the origin of laws. And as everyone knows, the myriad of innate techniques and immortal arts in this world all contain traces of laws within them. After understanding this, one could improve on the foundation of all their techniques, making them many times stronger than before. To those with higher comprehension, you will get the most benefit out from this. But those with low comprehension, this wouldn’t aid you much at all and might even affect your future cultivation, causing you to be confused and may achieve an opposite effect, thereby harming yourself instead.”
Qin Wentian couldn’t help but feel shock in his heart when he read the introductory passage. This could be considered an auxiliary support art that allows one to improve and transform the immortal arts and innate techniques. For those with higher comprehensions, the transformed arts and techniques might even achieve a heaven-defying effect. But to those with weaker comprehensions this wouldn’t be of much help and might even harm them instead.
If one was to choose this, it could be considered a risk.
“With the Heavenly Fiendgod Suppression Art, Heavenly Fiendgod Body Refinement Technique, Spiritual Refinement Method, Wind Roc Speed Technique… in addition to the Sky Roc Rune Bone I obtained from the immortal banquet, the arts I learned already cover the aspects of attacking, defence and speed. Although the Heavenly Fiendgod Suppression Art is the weakest out of all the immortal arts I know, if I change to another attack-type art, I have to re-cultivate it from the start. It’s also not that easy to find one suitable for me. I might as well choose this Ten Thousand Laws Record and improve on the Heavenly Fiendgod Suppression Art and all my other arts and techniques.”
Qin Wentian silently speculated before deciding. His eyes flashed with sharpness as his perception drifted into the stone wall where the Ten Thousand Laws Record was inscribed. In an instant, boundless runic inscriptions flowed into his mind, granting him all the information about the Ten Thousand Laws Record!”
