Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1307: The Price
When the Crown Prince of Iron Dragon Hall saw that, he immediately stood and waved his hand to the side. The two female attendants obediently left, leaving behind just the Crown Prince and Xue Ying.
“This corpse is of the Dao of Void Lineage. It is incredibly precious. With my father’s personality, he isn’t willing to sell it. But since Father could not use it, he has long given it to me, giving me the power to decide what I should do with it.” The Crown Prince grinned at Xue Ying, “If you wish to buy it, you have to trade for it using a ‘Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead’ and a piece of ‘Dried Realm Leaf’.”
Xue Ying’s pupils dilated.
Ever since he killed Devil Heart Cultist Master which caused him to reveal part of his strength, he had bought over quite a lot of intelligence from the Heaven’s Will Pavilion. For instance, reports introducing all kinds of treasures that existed in the Divine Realm. Otherwise, wouldn’t it be tragic if he could not recognize a treasure placed right before him, and as a result, missed out on it?
The Dried Realm Leaf was a miraculous item used by the natives of Divine Realm for cultivation. It’s an incredibly rare item that assisted one in cultivating his or her bloodline energy. In the history of Heaven’s Will Pavilion, there were three times that a piece of Dried Realm Leaf was auctioned. During these three times, the lowest price this leaf was sold at was for 3,900 Chaotic Origin Jades. And the highest price was 5,800 Chaotic Origin Jades! Of course, the entire Divine Realm had more than just these three pieces. Quite a few were owned by Grand Perfection God Emperors that bestowed them to their disciples and subordinates.
No matter what, this Dried Realm Leaf was worth approximately 5,000 Chaotic Origin Jades! That was a crazy price. One had to know that when Xue Ying participated in the previous auction, that Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpse was sold at a final price close to 20,000 Chaotic Origin Jades.
But the Dried Realm Leaf was simply lacking compared to the ‘Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead’!
The Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead was way more precious and rare. Never had it been seen in an auction! According to what Xue Ying understood, there were only three Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Beads in total that was discovered in the history of the Divine Realm. Any bead could be sold at sky-high price––far exceeding most corpses of Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.
Even though corpses of Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Lifeforms were similarly rare, in terms of rarity, the majority of experts in the Divine Realm might feel that it was not worth as much as the ‘Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead’. After all, the corpse did not have as many uses as the Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead.
“Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead? Crown Prince, aren’t your demands too high?” Xue Ying asked.
Grand Perfection God Emperors
The Crown Prince of Iron Dragon Hall sneered, “It’s not high at all. There are only three Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Lifeforms in the Divine Realm, and one of it is with me. As for the other two, one is under the protection of a Great Royal Clan, the ‘Extreme Star Clan’. The final one might be roaming around free and unfettered in the Divine Realm, but its survival capabilities were the highest. There had been six Grand Perfection God Emperors that once worked together, yet they could not hold that Chaotic Origin Lifeform back. If you missed the opportunity to get mine, where could you find another? In reality, there were quite a few who wanted to get their hands on this corpse. And to all of them, I gave the same condition. Without the Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead, nobody could ever think of getting it! Whoever could bring a Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead first and I’ll give this corpse to him.”
“Then I don’t need to give another Dried Realm Leaf right?” Xue Ying clarified.
“My daughter’s cultivation is currently lacking a piece of Dried Realm Leaf. If you could acquire that Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead, I believe you should be able to get a Dried Realm Leaf easily.” The Crown Prince of Iron Dragon Hall looked at Xue Ying, “I have mentioned the conditions, Brother Azure Cloud. You can come again after acquiring the Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead and a piece of Dried Realm Leaf to exchange for my Void Lineage Chaos Origin Lifeform corpse.”
“Can I have a look at the corpse first?” Xue Ying asked.
The Crown Prince was incredibly forthright. Flipping his hand, a Storage Eden Treasure appeared on his palm, “I have already released the restrictions. You should be able to view what is inside this Storage Eden.”
Xue Ying looked over.
After sending his consciousness in, it did not suffer from any hindrance and directly permeated into the Storage Eden.
At that moment when he saw the enormous meandering corpse that was as huge as a chain of mountains, even though it had fallen, its corpse was still emitting a bizarre wave. Xue Ying could see the manifestation of laws and profound mysteries on every part of its body. It was covered in many green scales. There were spikes all over its back and its tail too. These spikes contained patterns… that were incredibly profound.
Xue Ying swept his gaze across.
Just by looking at the surface of this corpse, the scales, the spikes, the claws… almost 90% of its body had manifested the Dao of Void laws. They were similarly profound and filled with mysteries at the Chaotic Origin Level. Different parts of its body manifested different kinds of laws. They were all different usages of the Dao of Void at the Chaotic Origin Level.
“You should have seen it now.” The Crown Prince then kept the corpse and smiled at Xue Ying.
Xue Ying felt a blazing heat spreading through his heart.
He had to get it!
What he just saw was merely a glimpse! One had to know that Xue Ying had to examine the internal structure and its inscription within a single eyeball of a Chaotic Origin Lifeform for a while before he could memorise it. In order for Xue Ying to memorize that enormous corpse, it would likely take him 100 to 1,000 years just for its surface! As for the internal part of the corpse, and even to analyze its body, Xue Ying would most likely be spending an incredibly long amount of time.
And the time taken to consolidate and comprehend the profound mysteries would be even harder to estimate.
‘As mentioned by the wise, the world is our teacher! Nonetheless, after reaching my current realm, the Dao of Void profound mysteries in the world aren’t as profound as what I have comprehended.’ Xue Ying shook his head. In this Divine Realm for instance, there were many flaws in the laws. It was even suppressing on the cultivators with great tyranny.
What he pursued after was to reach the Chaotic Origin Level.
This was no longer contained in the world. Even though was formidable, only the sixth and seventh strikes were related to the Chaotic Origin Level, and those were merely shallow usages of the laws. By relying on those two strikes, a cultivator could only reach a level comparable to some low-graded Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.
To him, a ‘Void Lineage’ Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpse was absolutely a good target of reference for study and research. It would aid him greatly in his cultivation.
“As I said before, this Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpse has been given to me by my father. The final decision lay in my hands.” The Crown Prince looked at Xue Ying, “If you were to somehow get your hands on the treasures I need, you can come find me anytime.”
“I’ll try my best.” Xue Ying stood up.
“I shall not be sending you off.” The Crown prince laughed. He grinned while watching Xue Ying leave.
The Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead was what the Crown Prince desired most for!
Given his identity, he still could not get it.
‘If I were to have a Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead, I could improve my strength by 50%. By then, even Grand Perfection God Emperors can’t deal against me.’ The Crown Prince thought. He was originally strong, and was ranked at the front of even Late Stage God Emperors. He was comparable to Great Emperor North River back at the Broken Teeth Mountain Range! Few treasures could boost his strength greatly. And Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead was the one that would strengthen him the most.
After leaving the Iron Dragon Hall, Xue Ying went to find a quiet alley before leaving the place with his Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique.
He first went to another tiny remote city. After altering his aura and disguising himself as a Peak Stage God Monarch expert, he went to purchase detailed information regarding the ‘Dried Realm Leaf’ and ‘Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead’. Previously, even though he had gotten a lot of information on the treasures within the Divine Realm, those were brief ones. The more detailed the information is, the more expensive it would be.
‘So expensive.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly.
Just purchasing detailed information on both the Dried Realm Leaf and Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead cost Xue Ying 8,000 Lightning Rocks.
‘There are actually quite a few cultivators who own the Dried Realm Leaf.’ Xue Ying swept his gaze across. The intelligence system of Heaven’s Will Pavilion was formidable. It introduced a total of 15 cultivators who owned a leaf at least.
‘As for the Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead, there are only three beads in total.’ Xue Ying had once seen the locations of where these three Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Beads were. Those who could secure a treasure like the Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead would naturally have an incredibly huge origin; they were all extraordinary in power.
‘It seems I have to kill.’
Xue Ying thought, ‘Let’s see who has committed the most sins.’
Xue Ying did not choose the one that were easiest to deal with. Instead, he chose those that had committed the most grievous crimes! Like that Crown Prince from the Iron Dragon Hall, if he was a huge devil that done many sins, Xue YIng would have assassinated him instead and snatch the treasure away. But this Crown Prince from the Iron Dragon Hall would only involve himself in ordinary battles. He did not have a huge amount of karmic grievances tying his body. Thus, Xue Ying was not willing to snatch the treasure away. Instead, he chose to conduct a normal trade.
Furthermore, that was also the residence of Iron Dragon City Master! Iron Dragon City Master was a frightening foe! And Iron Dragon City Master in his residence where he was augmented by his arrays would be of another level.
He was not someone Xue Ying could provoke easily!
And starting a series of killings was something he planned for. Because Xue Ying did not own a lot of treasures. Even though he had killed Devil Heart Cultist Master and several other God Emperors, what those treasures worth was so far off from treasures like the Golden Lightning Chaotic Origin Bead and the corpse of a Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Lifeform! Xue Ying had to still kill others and snatch their treasures before he could gather sufficient amount to exchange for what he wanted. And everything was done within the limits that Xue Ying set for himself––to not kill those ordinary experts.
Instead, those he planned on killing were the great devils.
