Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1287: River Origin City
Desolate Beasts had poor control of their aura. Even as they tried concealing it, Xue Ying’s Void Domain could easily ascertain a beast was at the peak stage God Monarch Realm.
‘After spending a year of searching, I finally found a peak stage God Monarch beast.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly. Desolate Beasts that were at the peak stage God Monarch Realm had sufficient value. These beasts represented the limit. Usually, only God Emperors could kill them. Of course, most ‘peak stage God Monarch’ Ascendants could do so too, ‘Fortunately, I have 1,200 years, which would give me enough time.’
Xue Ying feigned ignorance. He flew across this lake.
As he was flying across a particular point above the lake.
“Hua!” An enormous, translucent figure suddenly shot out from the lake. Its body spanned across half a dozen kilometers. This charge was as fast as lightning. Its soft and translucent figure immediately bound around Xue Ying!
Xue Ying moved his right hand down.
This simple action caused a void crack to extend and hack down on the soft translucent figure. That translucent figure had a face on it. With its soft body fluctuating, it easily dissipated away the force from this strike. But at the same time, the strike by Xue Ying caused its speed to slow. Xue Ying immediately retreated along the gap created by his strike.
“peak stage God Monarch Realm? Haha, it is rare for me to encounter such delicious food.” On that enormous translucent figure, a warped face could be seen. Its voice rumbled in the world.
As its voice was still rumbling.
It once again charged out at Xue Ying. Its translucent body did not suffer from any obstacles and flew at an incredibly fast speed. Even if Xue Ying relied on his Dao of Void to fly, it was merely faster by a thread! Furthermore, Xue Ying did not plan on escaping. His goal was to kill this Desolate Beast.
“Hong, hong, hong…”
This Desolate Beast continued flying forward in an attempt to bind and trap Xue Ying.
And Xue Ying treated this Desolate Beast as his target. He executed various Dao of Void techniques, yet he could not harm this Desolate Beast at all: ‘This Desolate Beast has an enormous survival capability. My attacks are simply tickling it. Its body is so much stronger than Bat Mountain Master’s ‘Bat Dragon Body’.’ With a fluctuation, that soft translucent body could easily dissipate away all incoming force by Xue Ying.
“You are really good at dodging. I shall not accompany you to play anymore.” This enormous translucent Desolate Beast suddenly said. At the same time, its translucent body formed multiple translucent threads. As there were too many threads formed, its enormous body started shrinking.
All those translucent threads came at Xue Ying.
Xue Ying extended his finger and lightly tapped out.
An enormous void bubble engulfed this translucent and soft Desolate Beast. It also enveloped all those incoming threads. The void bubble then collapsed until it became a black point! And with a tap of Xue Ying’s finger, it exploded. And after this explosion, it revealed the Desolate Beast which was perfectly undamaged.
“Damn.” This Desolate Beast was starting to become frustrated and angry. The translucent threads that shot out from its body soon turned into nine long whips.
“Hu, hu, hu, hu…”
The nine translucent whips had incredibly fierce power. They lashed out at Xue Ying simultaneously.
But even if its power became fiercer, in reality, Xue Ying had an easy time dealing with it.
‘Even though this Desolate Beast is at the peak stage God Monarch Realm, its survival capabilities are way too strong. My Dao of Void techniques can’t harm it at all.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly. If he could harm the other party, he could kill it after spending some time. But now, he could not injure it at all! It would be a waste of time to continue fighting with it.
‘Even I can’t harm it at all. It should be considered a rare kind of Desolate Beast at the peak stage God Monarch Realm.’ Xue Ying speculated.
Even though he came to the Great Wilderness to hunt, Xue Ying had not collected sufficient information on all ‘peak stage God Monarch’ Desolate Beasts.
Firstly, the publicized information by the Imperial Wind Clan in High Mountain City regarding peak stage God Monarch Realm was limited. Secondly, Xue Ying could purchase sufficiently large amounts and detailed pieces of information on Desolate Beast from the Heaven’s Will Pavilion, But the price was exorbitant. Xue Ying also sought to rely on this chance to temper himself! To him, as long as he encountered a ‘peak stage God Monarch Realm’ Desolate Beast, most would be his prey. Without having an in depth understanding of the Desolate Beasts, it would make this a more effective training session!
As for danger?
To him, peak stage God Monarch Desolate Beasts could never threaten his life.
‘Whatever. It only has these few techniques. I can no longer train myself any longer.’ With a thought.
Xue Ying looked at that enormous translucent Desolate Beast. That Desolate Beast was originally attacking Xue Ying crazily and wantonly, yet when the terrifying Mirage and Illusory Realm descended on the soul of this Desolate Beast and at the same time, Xue Ying punched out on this Desolate Beast, this Desolate Beast was killed! That fist punched by Xue Ying was merely done ‘to conceal and prevent any ultra-strong experts of this Divine Realm from reversing time to check through what happened in the battlefield. After all, his soul techniques were invisible. And even with the reversal of time, the other party would only see Xue Ying punching this Desolate Beast to death!
“Pu.” A fist struck out.
And that enormous translucent Desolate Beast revealed a look of terror. Following that, it was bombarded far away. Its aura rapidly weakened, and soon, the aura from its soul was completely exterminated.
As its body smashed down on the surface of the lake, it produced waves that rushed out in all directions. What was left behind was a soft body floating on the lake.
Xue Ying walked over. Extending his hand, he grabbed the corpse of this Desolate Beast before keeping it in his Eden Treasure.
What a joke.
His Mirage and Illusory Realm technique could even cause some middle stage Death Destruction Emperors and Native God Generals to fall! Middle stage Emperors were comparative to ‘middle stage God Emperors’ of this world. Even though some middle stage God Emperors might be able to resist against Xue Ying’s soul techniques, this was merely a peak stage God Monarch beast. Furthermore, this Desolate Beast that had brutal, vicious temperament did not have any extraordinary heart temperament. It could not resist against Xue Ying’s soul technique at all.
Hence, hunting Desolate Beasts were never dangerous to Xue Ying. Xue Ying could easily eliminate them. He fought with those beasts merely to temper his Dao of Void!
‘Time to find the next one.’ Xue Ying continued seeking for more.
Peak stage God Monarch Desolate Beasts were indeed rare. After Xue Ying hunted one, eh would usually execute his Great Destruction Realm Teleportation to another location before continuing his search.
Xue Ying only stopped when it was one month before the auction of Heaven’s Will Pavilion begin.
‘Time to go to the River Origin City.’
Xue Ying stood in the sky. By his side, a black crack formed. He then tunneled through it.
After three Great Destruction Realm Teleportations which was done primarily to alter his target––he only knew an approximate position of River Origin City––he arrived.
‘I am here.’
Xue Ying flew at high speed. He could see an enormous towering city right ahead. The River Origin City was one of the greatest cities ranked in the top within the entire Divine Realm. In comparison, the High Mountain City felt like a desolate city located out of the way.
Turning into a stream of light, Xue Ying arrived right outside of the city. He entered River Origin City with a gaze filled with shock under the guidance by the protectors at the gates. Experts came frequently to the River Origin City and many huge ships could be seen coming frequently.
‘Heaven’s Will Pavilion.’
Xue Ying looked at the towering structure several dozens of meters tall. Behind it were a continuous chain of palaces. This also formed the ‘Heaven’s Will Pavilion’ in River Origin City.
Even though this was a more luxurious and bigger Heaven’s Will Pavilion, it looked similar to the one in High Mountain City. Xue Ying came with great familiarity to the third storey of this tall building.
“I have some Desolate Beast corpses which I plan on selling to the Heaven’s Will Pavilion.” Xue Ying said to an attendant.
“Corpses of Desolate Beasts?” The welcoming attendant asked, “May I ask what realm they are in?”
“Peak stage God Monarch Realm.” Xue Ying replied.
“Please follow me.”
The attendant was startled. A God Monarch selling corpses of Desolate Beasts that were at the ‘peak stage God Monarch Realm’? He immediately led Xue Ying along the corridor, by passing many regions before arriving at a palace hall inside.
Xue Ying thought as he looked around: ‘The Heaven’s Will Pavilion in High Mountain City is merely three floors and three palaces. Here, there are tens of halls and more than a hundred attendants.’
“Could this God Monarch please bring out the Desolate Beast corpse you are selling?” Two Heaven’s Will Pavilion experts sat there. By their side, there was a spatial array floating. It was clearly a hundred meters diameter space, yet the dimension within spanned 50 kilometers.
Xue Ying waved his hand.
“Sou sou sou…”
Many corpses of Desolate Beast were thrown into that spatial array. These Desolate Beasts had differing appearances. The bigger ones were like a lizard that was more than 15 kilometers long. The smaller ones were not even a meter long. They had different aura too. And all of them were thrown into the spatial array.
“What!” The two experts from Heaven’s Will Pavilion that were responsible for appraising the purchase looked at this scene with a startle. With the blink of an eye, more than 10 peak stage God Monarch Desolate Beasts were thrown inside. Currently, Xue Ying was still throwing more beasts into it. Even though they were dead, the remnant aura from the Desolate Beasts were still extraordinary.
‘How many corpses of peak stage God Monarch Desolate Beasts does he have? Were they all killed by him?’ These two Heaven’s Will Pavilion experts held their breaths.
Xue Ying remained calm. The reason why he threw them in gradually was because he had been worried about clogging up the entrance of this spatial array. After all, he killed so many beasts precisely because he planned on participating in the auction happening soon!
