Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1359: Scriptures
Within a palace hall.
Xue Ying sat opposite of a male with deep blue hair. That male had messy hair and lush beard. It’s just that both eyes of his were filled with endless wisdom. At the center of his forehead, there was a slit which faintly covered a third eye.
“It is rare for Monarch Flying Snow to come seek me.” This deep-blue-haired male chuckled.
“Monarch Ardent Creek.” Xue Ying said, “The reason I came today is because I wish to have a glimpse of Monarch Ardent Creek’s cultivation scripture.”
Scarlet Cloud City had more than 3,000 experts.
Yet genuine Dao Cultivators were few and far between! An absolute majority of them were sent to this world because of the Chaotic Origin Bloodlines in their bodies. As for Dao Cultivators that specialized in ‘Dao of Void’, even fewer of them existed.
Of the top few apex cultivators in Scarlet Cloud City, there was only one ‘Grand Perfection God Emperor Dao Cultivator’ who reached that level in the Dao of Void––Monarch Ardent Creek!
Of the Late Stage God Emperors that cultivated in the Dao of Void, there were only eight of them!
“ is indeed my biggest achievement. By relying on this, I was able to cultivate a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body.” Monarch Ardent Creek nodded, “This cultivation scripture isn’t something I will easily teach others.”
“Tell me the conditions you have, Monarch Ardent Creek.” Xue Ying was straightforward.
“I would not care if others came to ask me for this. But since it is Monarch Flying Snow, I would still respect your decision.” Monarch Ardent Creek waved his hand before throwing a piece of wooden talisman over. When Xue Ying received it, he immediately began extending his senses into the wooden talisman which poured information into his mind with a “hong~”
. This was the only complete Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body cultivation technique that he had acquired.
In reality, the that Yuan bestowed upon Xue Ying in the past did not include the cultivation technique to grasp a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body precisely because… the Dao path towards becoming a Chaotic Origin Lifeform had to be taken by oneself! Only when one walked down this path himself could he have absolute control over the technique. Other Innate Chaotic Origin Lifeforms for instance had Chaotic Origin Laws manifesting on them innately. But prevented them from maximizing the execution of their strength.
Hence, one could not learn the Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body Technique of others!
That would mark a wrong path!
This was also the reason why ‘Emperor Summer’ and ‘Xue Ying’ chose to take different routes in the past. Both of them had their own determined direction.
The was also one of the many ways that was drastically different from Xue Ying’s.
Eight Revolutions of the Celestial River…
At the very beginning, this was an array technique!
Monarch Ardent Creek specialized in array techniques the most! He evolved his array techniques into the void! After that, he turned his array techniques into a celestial river. That marked the complete Cosmos God Final Realm! When the Celestial River revolved, it would also represent an advancement in realm. had even interacted with some structural profound mysteries of the Chaotic Origin Dimension.
‘This Eight Revolutions of the Celestial River is made of many structural layers. It feels quite similar to the structure of an Origin World, just slightly more crude.’ Xue Ying thought. The structure of an Origin World was actually not complex. But the more one experienced it, the more delicate one would find it. Even though it might not be complex. It was perfect. It was a space where even weak lifeforms could live within.
One had to know that places like the Lightning World and Sacred World were so harsh that weaklings could not survive in them.
An Origin World.
The lowest level being ants or some worms. The highest being a Chaotic Origin Lifeform that could enter albeit with his strength suppressed.
“Many thanks Monarch Ardent Creek. Monarch can just tell me if you need some help from me.” Xue Ying said. Because everyone took different paths, he could at least learn from others and absorb them into his Dao path.
“We are all taking this Dao of Void so let us help each other. If Monarch Flying Snow obtains the Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body, I hope Monarch Flying Snow could let me take reference to the cultivation technique that you create.” Monarch Ardent Creek said.
“That is definite.” Xue Ying added.
“I still have one more request that I hope Monarch Flying Snow could agree to.” Monarch Ardent Creek said.
“Do say.” Xue Ying answered.
“I know that Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor has invited Monarch Flying Snow into his team to hunt down the Chaotic Origin Prisoner, ‘Quiet Icy Mountain Master’.” Monarch Ardent Creek said, “I believe other than the heart and blood, the corpse would eventually be given to Monarch Flying Snow. Am I right?”
Xue Ying felt his heart move. He nodded slightly without confirming anything.
Monarch Ardent Creek continued: “I wish that I can comprehend this Chaotic Origin Prisoner corpse together with Monarch Flying Snow. We can limit the cultivation time to 100 million years. How about that?”
“Comprehend the corpse together for 100 million years?” Xue Ying muttered to himself irresolutely, making Monarch Ardent Creek nervous.
To Dao Cultivators, there was a huge allure in comprehending the corpse of a Chaotic Origin Prisoner.
“Alright. By then you and I can comprehend it together. We can also exchange knowledge and corroborate what we learn.” Xue Ying nodded. He could accept it if it was just 100 million years.
It was only Monarch Ardent Creek who put forward some conditions. The other eight Void Lineage Late Stage God Emperor Dao Cultivators in Scarlet Cloud City did not. Instead, Xue Ying took the initiative to exchange it with two Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses. These eight cultivators were incredibly elated, and were willing to gain the favor of Xue Ying, giving him an easy time exchanging for the other eight scriptures.
Even though these eight scriptures were only at the Late Stage God Emperor Level, they represented different paths and Xue Ying could refer to them for some guidance.
And thus, Xue Ying borrowed the experiences of other cultivators before absorbing the essence into his own path.
Xue Ying also comprehended the 21 Chaotic Origin Lifeforms at the same time.
He even frequently went out to spar with other cultivators in the following days! The experts within Scarlet Cloud City were willing to show respect to Xue Ying, sparring with him and allowing Xue Ying to validate his techniques in battle. Even though it was not a true life and death battle like he had with the Chaotic Origin Lifeforms, it would still be useful as the techniques of cultivators were more strange and unpredictable.
They came from different worlds and specialized in different techniques. Some even made Xue Ying dumbstricken.
Nine scriptures, comprehending the corpses and sparring.
Xue Ying’s accumulations continued thickening. His Chaotic Origin Refinement Body was also gradually perfected.
The gale whistled. Great snowflakes flew down from the sky.
Xue Ying sat by himself under a pavilion watching the floating snowflakes fall.
‘How difficult is it for me to reach the Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body?’ Xue Ying thought. Even though his experiences were aplenty, he had still yet to reach where he desired in both Dao of Void and Dao of Mirage. He was just slightly away from reaching the Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body. It was still difficult for him to stabilize his body completely! As for his ‘Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm’, the third killing technique which he previously created was heaven-defying enough. Even when he had the Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet, he still could not come out with the fourth killing technique.
‘Unknowingly, 300 billion years have passed. It is about time for me to set off.’
Xue Ying chuckled. He turned around towards the corner of a distant corridor.
By the corner, a handsome bald young man came walking over! He was none other than one of the three City Masters in Scarlet Cloud City, ‘Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’.
“City Master Nine-Headed.” Xue Ying stood.
“How is Brother Flying Snow’s cultivation?” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor chuckled, “Is it appropriate for us to go hunt for the Chaotic Origin Prisoner now?”
“It has been 300 billion years since we made a contract, City Master Nine-Headed.” Xue Ying said, “Since City Master Nine-Headed has given me sufficient time to cultivate until now, no matter what, I’ll immediately set off when City Master Nine-Headed asked me to.”
“Ever since the full 300 billion years have passed, I have always been investigating the whereabouts of Quiet Icy Mountain Master. It is only now that I finally discovered that he is out on another patrol.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor said, “The moment I discovered it, I immediately came to find Brother Flying Snow.”
