Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1217: Number One Killing Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm Technique (1)
Within Broken Tooth Mountain Range.
On a sky-floating island, Xue Ying carefully proceeded forward. He released his Mirage and Illusory Realm around him while carefully paying attention to his surroundings.
A Death Destruction clansman stood at a distance spying on this weak little cultivator. The cultivator suffered from repulsion of the sky-floating island. Hence, even if he had a more heaven-defying concealing technique, the Death Destruction clansman could easily perceive his presence at a certain distance away.
If one said that the aurae of Insect Ancestor and Swordmaster were still filled with some intimidation on others.
Then Xue Ying’s mere level-two Cosmos God aura did not make others feel intimidated at all. The eyes of this Death Destruction clansman were filled with greed. He wanted to eat this ‘delicious prey’ standing before him. With a flash, he easily crossed through the distance before reaching Xue Ying. But the moment it appeared, just as it was about to devour the cultivator before it, its consciousness shook and then it no longer knew what happened.
It fell down onto the ground.
Xue Ying watched as the Death Destruction clansman fell dead onto the ground. As he extinguished the soul of this Death Destruction clansman, its body began dissipating like fog into the world. Xue Ying shook his head inwardly: ‘Ordinary members of the Death Destruction Clan are like wild beasts, yet they are so powerful. Nature is incredible.’
The intelligence reports provided by Summer Wind Ancient Nation had some deductions in the past.
The Natives had a strand of bloodline from Chaotic Origin Lifeforms. And the Death Destruction Clan seemed to be a race which emerged from the death of Chaotic Origin Lifeforms. Their intelligence was much weaker than the Natives; an absolute majority of them were like wild beasts.
“Sou.” Xue Ying continued advancing forward. This was the first time he ventured into a sky-floating island alone. His luck was quite good since he had not created any huge disturbances on his way to the core of this sky-floating island.
But the moment he bypassed the external perimeter barrier outside the clans-ground of this sky-floating island, the protectors were alerted.
“There are outsiders!”
The entire clans-ground immediately began moving.
The ‘Kings’ in the clans-ground immediately led their subordinates out. Seeing the white-robed young man flying over at high speed, the elites of the Death Destruction Clan within the clans-ground were both startled and full of disdain! Those who could stand guard in the clans-ground were all powerful. Most of them had slightly higher intelligence too.
“Such a weak cultivator actually succeeded in reaching the clans-ground with his luck? Nobody from the Death Destruction Clan actually discovered him until now?” These elites of the Death Destruction Clan naturally did not place Xue Ying in their eyes. After all, there had been cases in history where Paragon Master cultivators sent their avatars without treasures into the clans-ground by relying entirely on luck.
There were also some who entered deep into the sky-floating island by relying on luck.
It’s just that there were few who could walk all the way into the clans-ground by relying on luck!
“Eat him.” These Death Destruction clansmen were not merciful. Even though cultivators had arrived, and the things they gathered were stuff the Death Destruction Clan did not find useful, the Death Destruction Clan remained obstinate–they would not allow the cultivators to take their things and would eat them all!
A group of Death Destruction Clansmen suddenly appear next to Xue Ying. But at the next moment, they suddenly fell onto the ground. Even the leading ‘King’ had frighteningly fell onto the ground! Only peak Kings could barely maintain their consciousness before Xue Ying’s illusory realm. Clearly, this ‘King’ did not have the willpower to do so.
But this time, Xue Ying did not kill them. He merely immersed those Death Destruction clansmen in an illusory realm without wiping their souls out.
“Hu.” This group of Death Destruction clansmen all lost their consciousness. They were controlled by Xue Ying to float in midair around him.
Xue Ying continued walking forward.
“What is going on?”
“This, what is this?”
The region of the clans-ground was just this huge. Xue Ying’s illusory realm covered a relatively small area, yet he easily enveloped the elites one after another. In the blink of an eye, several dozen Death Destruction elite were floating around Xue Ying deep asleep.
“Cultivator! You are seeking death!” A furious roar sounded. Under this sort of weird situation, the clans-ground naturally awakened the ‘Emperor’.
Xue Ying had already seen the blood-colored river meandering around a bizarre tree. At the peak of the tree, there was a gray eye.
“Sou sou sou.”
With a thought, Xue Ying easily released many avatars that flew in all directions.
“Emperor from the Death Destruction Clan, I come thus without vile intentions.” Xue Ying said, “These Death Destruction clansmen are temporarily asleep. I have yet to kill them.” As he spoke, Xue Ying was in reality memorizing the internal structure of that gray eye.
“Without vile intentions?” This was a fat spider-like Death Destruction expert. That spider-like Death Destruction expert had a human head that stared at Xue Ying.
“I come here seeking for some materials. These materials aren’t useful to the Death Destruction Clan at all.” Xue Ying continued, “Emperor of the Death Destruction Clan, you can be rest assured that I’ll definitely not touch the treasures which are important to your Death Destruction Clan. I’ll immediately leave after collecting the materials.”
“Everything on this sky-floating island belongs to my Death Destruction Clan. You aren’t qualified to take them away.”
“They aren’t useful to you.”
“No. You aren’t qualified to take them away.” That Emperor stared at Xue Ying roaring, “Place them down and scram for me! I’ll spare your life.”
Xue Ying shouted back with slight indignance: “Even a single piece of material is not fine?”
“Impossible! It is benevolent of me to spare your life.” The Emperor roared.
“Alright, I’ll leave.” Xue Ying gritted his teeth ‘furiously’ shouting, “But are you truly not going to chase after me? Would the other members of the Death Destruction Clan listen to your words?”
“Rest assured. They will listen to what I say. None of them dares to disobey me. Scram now.” The Emperor coldly uttered.
Only then did Xue Ying waved his hand. The distant avatars rapidly converged at his direction. During this moment of convergence, he naturally delayed for more time.
‘I’ve memorized everything.’ Only then did Xue Ying let out a sigh of relief.
The reason why he spoke so much was because he was delaying for more time. Once he memorized the internal structure of this gray eye, he would have succeeded in his endeavor here.
“Bang, bang, bang…”
The surrounding sleeping Death Destruction clansmen began falling onto the ground.
And Xue Ying rapidly left: “I wish that you will keep your promise, Emperor.”
The Emperor watched coldly at everything.
Those who reached his level had high intelligence. It’s just that they were born as part of the Death Destruction Clan, causing their hearts to be filled with endless desire to kill! For the Emperor to control and spare the other party’s life was already the bottomline of the Emperor. If the other party planned on taking a piece of material away? That would simply humiliate the ‘Emperor’!
On another sky-floating island.
“They aren’t dead.” Similarly, a group of slumbering Death Destruction clansmen were floating around Xue Ying. And not far away, a group of other members from the Death Destruction Clan were also looking over in dread. They did not dare to come close to Xue Ying.
“I only require some materials that aren’t of use to your Death Destruction Clan.” Xue Ying hurriedly added.
He did not have the time to justify himself.
“Intruders, die!” An enormous palm rapidly flew across the void and came down.
“Madman.” With a thought, Xue Ying immediately killed one of the floating Death Destruction clansmen. He did not kill the rest.
This avatar was exterminated.
Nevertheless, Xue Ying had released a group of avatars when he came to the clans-ground. The other avatars were scattered around staring at the golden eye.
“I only need a single thought to wipe out your Death Destruction Clan, Emperor. Don’t force me to do so.” The hundreds of avatars of Xue Ying said at the same time. His voice boomed. Those sleeping Death Destruction clansmen were still floating around him.
That towering Emperor felt disdained.
To him, even if the other members of the Death Destruction Clan in the sky-floating island were killed, he would not care. One had to know that Death Destruction clansmen even sought to kill and devour one another! There were only a few ‘Emperors’ who cared about their subordinates. Some ‘Emperors’ really cared less about them. This was even when the Emperor had sufficient intelligence and willpower.
As for most Kings, they cared even less about if their subordinates lived or not.
“Truly a madman. I came to negotiate yet he isn’t willing to talk? I haven’t finished memorizing the illusory realm structure of that mysterious eye!” Xue Ying felt helpless. He knew that since the Emperor of that sky-floating island was awoken, he would most likely remain awake in the near future. Hence, it was not appropriate for Xue Ying to visit that sky-floating island again.
Xue Ying continued his exploration of many sky-floating islands. He succeeded in some, and failed in others. Those times he failed would see hundreds of avatars being killed. But Xue Ying had more than 10,000 avatars, and refining them back was something easily done.
Some precious materials that were beneficial to cultivators could be found deep in the sky-floating islands. And it was almost certain that they could be found in the clans-ground!
In the blink of an eye.
Xue Ying had personally visited more than 300 islands ever since he began his solo exploration journey.
He only succeeded to venture deep and return safely in 55 islands. The others saw his avatars wiped. Clearly, Xue Ying’s conditions were very low, and there were ‘Emperors’ who were willing to spare Xue Ying. During these 55 times, none of them actually allowed Xue Ying to collect the materials. Xue Ying had discovered some precious materials regardless, and adding them up, he had earned an equivalent of two peak-graded secret treasures.
No other choice.
In the past, with ‘Swordmaster’ around, they could still fight with the Emperors.
But now, Xue Ying was completely helpless against the ‘Emperors’. The Emperors could easily resist against his illusory realm and wipe him out.
Even though his avatars were wiped out in many sky-floating islands, quite a few succeeded in memorizing the illusory realm structure of those mysterious eyes during the period of being killed.
Of these more than 300 islands…
Xue Ying had completely memorized the structures of 102 eyes. In addition to the 33 eyes he discovered previously, there were a total of 135 of them. In total, Xue Ying had already visited more than half the sky-floating islands recorded by the Blood Flame Clan where those mysterious eyes were found. And now, Xue Ying decided to stop his exploration.
Fan Clan Magic Mountain.
Underneath the short Burning Heart God Tree, there was a white-robed young man here.
At this moment, all avatars of Xue Ying were focused on cultivating. The reason why he stopped exploring was because he had entered a state of realization. The illusory realm structures from the 135 mysterious eyes––82 gray and 53 gold–gave Xue Ying an inspiration.
He focused entirely on comprehending and did not care about the outside world.
And in his heart, a very special illusory realm was gradually forming shape…
