Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1006: Cultivation
Ardent Fire City. Within a slightly more desolate hall in the Southern Cloud Sacred Palace.
Chun Yu Wei Yi was currently seated opposite of Marquis Ardent Fire. Each had a long table in front of them. Xue Ying was now still a child, so he remained by the side of Marquis Ardent Fire.
“Little Prince Xue Ying, I might be the hall master of the Southern Cloud Sacred Palace in this Ardent Fire City, but I have to pre-warn you in advance. There are many cultivation techniques in this world. For instance, some very formidable inheritances originated from the six great ancient nations which exist in my Southern Cloud King too. Even though it might be hard to find them in the Ardent Fire City, it is quite easy to search for those cultivation techniques in the nation.” Chun Yu Wei Yi chuckled, “Just the same Dao of Void path alone consists of several other absolute arts created by the six great ancient nations. I urge you to consider this properly before deciding on what should be your main cultivation technique. After all, cultivation is mentally-draining, and most only cultivate a single absolute art.”
“Little Brother Wei Yi, Ying Shan Xue Ying has activated the void bloodline.” Marquis Ardent Fire chuckled, “He has done that previously in front of me. I could vaguely sense that the bloodline has an ancient and unfathomable aura. It should be a Cosmos God level bloodline. Haha, Xue Ying is a disciple of my Ying Shan Clan, and his body contains a void bloodline on the level of the Cosmos God realm. That bloodline could only come from the king, which meant that the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles” is most apt for Xue Ying.”
“Cosmos God level bloodline?” Chun Yu Wei Yi was stunned after hearing it.
Southern Cloud Nation had a total of four Cosmos Gods. All of them cultivated in different directions.
As for the void bloodline… only the king has it.
As the four great clans and those from the aristocratic clan frequently inter-married, even though there were the occasional few who married with those from the neighboring nations, the only one with a void bloodline is Southern Cloud King. After several generations of reproduction, as long as one were not from the same generation as those old men, the current aristocratic clan disciples would usually have Cosmos God bloodlines in their bodies.
It was only that these bloodlines were too diluted, and activating it was extremely difficult.
The Cosmos God bloodline in Xue Ying’s body was actually diluted as well! But his realm was high, and Xue Ying was confident of reaching the limit of Primal Chaos realm even without the bloodline.
“Since he has the void bloodline of the king, cultivating the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles” will indeed produce great results with half the effort.” Chun Yu Wei Yi nodded. Saying that, he flipped his hand before bringing out a black book.
This black book flew directly to Xue Ying, descending right before him.
Xue Ying looked at this black book in front. It was entirely pitch black and gave off a feeling similar to when Xue Ying observed the essence of the void, the ‘black fog spherical bodies’.
“The entire scroll?” Marquis Ardent Fire felt slightly startled by the side, “It would cost 100,000 cosmos crystals right?”
“No need.” Chun Yu Wei Yi smiled and shook his head, “Little Prince Xue Ying has an amazing talent. He is a Void God at birth and has activated the void bloodline of the king. He is completely qualified to cultivate the entire scroll of “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles” for free. I merely have to report this upwards.”
Xue Ying understood after hearing it.
He had seen many books and knew that there were rules and limitations for spreading of the absolute art of the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion.
The Southern Cloud Sacred Religion was so famous and could become one of the top ten great religions in the entire Realm Heart Great Land. Most who decided to join this religion to learn the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles” would have to cultivate the first scroll first. Only when they reached the Unity realm would they be qualified to cultivate the second scroll! And cultivating it required ‘expenses’.
Why would those religions be so enthusiastic about spreading their absolute arts? It was all for the sake of earning cosmos crystals! A complete “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles” cost 100,000 cosmos crystals in total.
Being one of the ten great religions in the Realm Heart Great Land, how many cultivators had chosen to learn it? The wealth generated would make Cosmos Gods mad. The Southern Cloud Nation relied on it to obtain a horrifying wealth, and this meant resources! In terms of wealth, the Southern Cloud King could be ranked in the frontmost across all Cosmos Gods in the entire Realm Heart Great Land. He was envied by many other Cosmos Gods, and other Cosmos Gods were doing their best to create absolute arts that were easy to cultivate and powerful. But it was honestly too tricky. Furthermore, proper operation of business must be conducted for the religion to spread to this stage.
For instance, there were leeways given to some when learning the absolute art; those who were very talented could acquire it for free! Because ultimately, when a genius became strong using the absolute art from the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion, it would only make the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion more famous.
But this condition for cultivating the absolute art for free was harsh. Xue Ying was an aristocratic disciple within the Southern Cloud Nation and had great talent. The bloodline he awakened was also the king’s bloodline. That was why Chun Yu Wei Yi had been so confident of applying for a waiver.
Xue Ying flipped through the black book in his hand.
Just as he flipped open, a massive amount of dimmed light shot out from the black book directly into the forehead of Xue Ying.
Xue Ying’s mind rang for a moment.
He could vaguely see a scene in his mind.
There was a piece of primal chaos, and he stood there without knowing time and space. That small little figure stood there, yet it produced a terrifying suppression on Xue Ying. This suppression far surpassed that which Xue Ying felt from World Ancestor and Ancestor Sorcerer. It seemed to be vaguely above the vast aura given out by Sacred Master.
This thin and small figure had an erected nose. His eyes were dark, and he then began displaying a technique.
His entire body was like a weapon. His legs, elbow, back, head, palm, fist, fingers… regardless, every part of his body was a frightening weapon. The techniques he unleashed was were becoming more mysterious over time. In the end, the power he released reached an unfathomable stage.
“Hua.” The thin and small figure hacked his palm out. One could see many planets and cultivators in the distant. There were also many flying ships… yet everything was transformed into a piece of art! Those planets, cultivators and flying ships became part of the art.
Following that, this small figure pointed out his finger one last time.
The moment he tapped his finger out, everything was destroyed. At the moment of shatter, Xue Ying even saw a colossal horror! That aura was something which he had discovered once before only in the higher dimension that he peered through the black fog spherical bodies.
Following that, everything disappeared.
That small thin figure turned into streams of information that entered the soul of Xue Ying. It was the specific cultivation technique for the complete “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”, though the method was being suppressed by an unseen force. Xue Ying understood that he could not break apart this shackles to impart this technique to others.
‘Such terrifying absolute art. A single palm caused the entire world to become a piece of art? A single tap destroyed the prison of the void, enabling one to see the higher dimensional world?’ Xue Ying was astonished. This was something that the Southern Cloud King imparted to others, so to what extent has his personal strength reached?
No wonder he could create this religion and turn it into one of the top ten great religions.
Within the palace hall, Marquis Ardent Fire and Chun Yu Wei Yi were currently chatting and drinking. They did not disturb Xue Ying at all and knew that Xue Ying was receiving the impartation.
“Hu.” Xue Ying placed down the black book. Shock was painted on his face. This absolute art was something he would definitely cultivate properly.
“Little Prince Xue Ying, you have learned this absolute art.” Chun Yu Wei Yi laughed, “Only during this impartation will you be able to see the complete training scene of the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles” by the king. After that, it’ll be hard for you to earn this opportunity again. You should experience it properly.”
Xue Ying nodded, “Hall Master, I’ve heard that the”Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles” which is spread to the public isn’t the complete version?”
Chun Yu Wei Yi nodded, “The practice scene which you just saw by the king is the complete one, and the absolute art you learned is a simplified version. After all, an absolute art that is propagated and spread across the world should be cheap and easy enough. This simplified version is enough for the cultivator to reach the seventh level of Unity realm, and ninth level of Primal Chaos realm.”
Xue Ying nodded. From the place he came from, reaching the seventh level at Unity realm and ninth level at Primal Chaos realm was the limit. Yet this was merely a simplified version of the absolute art here.
“If you were to reach the fifth level strength at the Unity realm, I can apply for you to become an inner disciple. By then when you visit the capital, and when your Ying Shan Clan exert a little strength, it shouldn’t be hard for you to become an inner disciple. By then, you will be able to get the complete “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”.” Chun Yu Wei Yi laughed, “Actually, many cultivators are ambitious. They obtained the complete “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”, and guess what? How many of them could exert the eighth level strength at the Unity realm? And how many could reach the God Yuan Palace tenth level strength at Primal Chaos realm and suppress the new Cosmos Gods? If you could reach that stage, the king would definitely take the initiative in taking you as his personal disciple, and you will thus be imparted with other secret inheritances!”
Very soon, Xue Ying and Marquis Ardent Fire left the Southern Cloud Sacred Palace back to the Marquisdom.
After returning back to his own residence, Xue Ying immediately began his study of this “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”.
