Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1370: Secret Techniques
‘At least I have finally seen someone jump out of the cage to become a Chaotic Origin Lifeform.’ Amidst the crowd of people, Xue Ying’s current mood was vibrant.
In his hometown Origin World, in Realm Heart Great Land, at the Lightning World, and even after coming to this Sacred World… over the long years, he had never seen someone personally becoming a Chaotic Origin Lifeform! The difficulty of becoming a ‘Chaotic Origin Lifeform’ had somehow created an unseen pressure on Xue Ying. But now that he saw someone whom he once fought side by side, and even asked him for help, ‘Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’ succeeded! He reached the Chaotic Origin Level!
Excitement, envy, fighting spirit.
His current mood was stimulated!
‘Becoming a Chaotic Origin Lifeform. One could achieve an Ultimate Awakening even via external bloodlines. I don’t believe I can’t succeed.’ Great Emperor North River was similarly filled with fighting spirit. He immediately turned around and headed back to his cavern-dwelling.
‘I just have to reach the level of strength Brother Nine-Headed once was, and it should be possible for me to succeed in an Ultimate Awakening.’ Amidst the group of apex cultivators, several Bloodline Cultivators had similarly seen their ‘target’. Before this, they did not find themselves to be much weaker than City Master Nine-Headed. They could reach his strength after improving by a few percentage points. Even though it was tough, they saw a ray of hope.
‘Brother Nine-Headed has undergone an Ultimate Awakening by using the bloodline of Quiet Icy Mountain Master as the catalyst to fuse his other nine bloodlines. He even created an entirely new Chaotic Origin Tribe.’ Weather Leaf’s eyes were similarly emitting a dazzling light, ‘Since he could pave a new path, I, Weather Leaf, believe that I can similarly break through by force on day!’
‘He, Nine-Headed, has reached where he is step by step from a mortal. He did not have any Chaotic Origin Bloodlines. Instead, he took the initiative to fuse other Chaotic Origin Bloodlines into his body. With ten bloodlines, he finally underwent an Ultimate Awakening. I am the strongest descendant left behind by my ancestor. I have been greatly nurtured yet I merely have a single Chaotic Origin Bloodline. The standard of the cultivation resources I have is way better than Nine-Headed, so I don’t believe I can’t awaken!’ Wu Xiao similarly turned around and left by himself.
For a moment.
The crowd of cultivators began comparing themselves with ‘City Master Nine-Headed’. They felt that their ‘goal’ was in sight! All of them were filled with an unprecedented intense fighting spirit.
Over the long years, many of the cultivators had lost hope. They lost courage and confidence of whether they could become a Chaotic Origin Lifeform! After all, they had seen far too many geniuses that were more heaven-defying than they failed to break through. That just gnawed away their confidence. But now, seeing that one had succeeded, they were no longer the same mentally.
In the following days.
Not just in Scarlet Cloud City, the cultivators in the other four assembly grounds were similarly excited.
“Monarch Flying Snow, I am planning to organize a team to kill the Chaotic Origin Prisoner ‘Transient Light River Master’. I am sincerely asking you to join my team! With you around, our chance of success would be more than ten times greater. If you have any condition, you can just tell me. It is incredibly important to me for my Ultimate Awakening, so I hope Monarch Flying Snow could lend a helping hand. If I were to reach the Chaotic Origin Level, I promise I’ll definitely repay Monarch Flying Snow for your effort.”
“I am temporarily not planning to visit other assembly grounds if there is no special reason.” Xue Ying replied.
“We can pick you up.”
“There’s no need.”
“But I urgently require this Chaotic Origin Prisoner Bloodline for my Ultimate Awakening.”
Xue Ying simply ignored the other party.
He had no choice.
There were simply too many cultivators asking him for his help to hunt down the Chaotic Origin Prisoners! The success of City Master Nine-Headed had motivated many other Bloodline Cultivators to feel that——the bloodline of a High-Graded Chaotic Origin Lifeform that was similar to their bloodlines should have a significant help to their Ultimate Awakenings.
Everything in the world was about fairness.
Xue Ying simply would not care about those who shouted ‘that is essential for my breakthrough to the Chaotic Origin Level’, or ‘I promise I’ll repay you for your effort’. Because many cultivators desired to obtain the corpse of a Chaotic Origin Prisoner. Even if they were Dao Cultivators, they could use it for comprehension and cultivation!
Nonetheless, if the conditions were sufficiently alluring, Xue Ying would still be willing to lend a helping hand.
In the following 50 trillion years or sol.l
He had consecutively accepted six invitations. Three of them came from other assembly grounds! These six times were all targeted at Chaotic Origin Prisoners.
Of the six operations, they succeeded twice!
It seemed the fall of Quiet Icy Mountain Master had somehow made other Chaotic Origin Prisoners across the Sacred World restless. After all, there were few Chaotic Origin Prisoners in total—just tens of them! When one fell, the others were alarmed. They all sought ways to find out what exactly happened. And the result was they discovered ‘Monarch Flying Snow’s terrifying soul technique. Those Chaotic Origin Prisoners that were within the neighboring region had become much more vigilant. Out of the six operations, four ended in failures. The Chaotic Origin Prisoners had fled to a location close to their territories, allowing them to regain sufficient strength that prevented the cultivator team from killing them. Hence, the cultivators were forced to give up.
But no matter what.
Adding up Quiet Icy Mountain Master, they had killed three Chaotic Origin Prisoners in total! This success rate was abnormally high. Hence, there were still many cultivators asking Xue Ying for help.
Scarlet Cloud City, within the cavern-dwelling.
Xue Ying was in his own underground palace. His body was vaguely translucent. At this moment, a water layer had covered his body. This body protection… was in actuality made up of many small water droplets. Those water droplets were constantly moving and were protecting every part of his body perfectly. If one magnified the layer of water, this water droplet was in reality, a ‘spatial pocket’ that was constantly moving.
Xue Ying moved. He easily arced through the sky.
When the layer of water droplets covering his body moved, they were like sharp edges that could cut through all objects! Xue Ying’s speed of explosiveness over the short distance was simply terrifying. It was more than twice as fast as when he used the Void Devil Insect Body Technique in the past.
“Hu”, Xue Ying stopped at the other end of the underground palace.
“Xiu xiu xiu…”
He was constantly moving within the underground palace. From one end to the other end. The layer of water droplets covering his body easily cut through everything.
‘My speed has become much faster.’ Xue Ying stopped. He revealed a joyous look, ‘In terms of speed, I should be ranked around tenth in Scarlet Cloud City.’
In Scarlet Cloud City, there were some cultivators with a bloodline that made them exceptionally fast! They were even much faster than Weather Leaf and Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor in the past.
Xue Ying’s current speed was terrifying enough for he could rank around tenth in Scarlet Cloud City, a place filled with experts.
‘This was the technique that Quiet Icy Mountain Master relied on before he died.’ Xue Ying nodded, ‘I have been researching his corpse for such a long time before I succeeded in deducing this secret technique out.’
It was just like how he once deduced the First Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm Killing Technique in the past after memorising the structures of those mysterious eyes that originated from the Thousand-Eyed Existence.
Innate Chaotic Origin Lifeforms could dig out the potential of their bloodline. They would gradually become stronger and bigger over time. Their bodies would even transform, causing more laws and profound mysteries to be manifested! Some ‘secret techniques’ that they learned through their bloodlines could be observed by others based on certain body structures. Because they were ultimately unlike Dao Cultivators who focused on grasping the the laws and profound mysteries. Instead, they grew stronger by digging the potential of their bloodlines.
Hence, even though they could execute certain secret techniques, they did not understand their essence. The secret techniques they executed were learned through their bloodlines.
When Xue Ying and other cultivators carried out their research on the internal structures of the corpse, they would then create similar secret techniques that were simplified versions according to the laws and profound mysteries they observed.
Actually, most secret techniques were created during the process of growth and accumulation.
Xue Ying created the Third Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm Killing Technique which eventually resulted in a transformation on his soul.
‘At least I succeeded in re-creating this ‘Water Droplet Technique’. I shall next study and deduce out the ‘Void Congealing Technique’.’ Xue Ying went back to his research. The body of Quiet Icy Mountain Master had manifested in various profound mysteries on its body structure and many hidden secret techniques. In Xue Ying’s opinion, the most terrifying one was the ‘Water Droplet Technique’ and the ‘Void Congealing Technique’.
The Water Droplet Technique could be used to protect his body, boosting his survival capabilities! At the same time, it could also boost his flying speed significantly.
Xue Ying would naturally try his best to deduce this secret technique out.
As for the other ‘Void Congealing Technique’, in the past, it was used to remove all sound from Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’s hearing senses. It even caused him to feel cold and his thinking to slow by a step! This technique was comparatively more mysterious. Quiet Icy Mountain Master was able to use it once, yet he could no longer use it anymore for a period.
Hence, it was evident that using this technique was quite taxing on the suppressed and restricted Quiet Icy Mountain Master.
The difficulty of grasping it would naturally be higher.
‘Congealing the void?’ Xue Ying became immersed in it.
In the entire Sacred World, the cultivators across all five assembly grounds were passionately cultivating. All of them wished to be the second Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor in breaking through to the Chaotic Origin Level.
Deep under the Sea of Abyss.
There was a towering figure which was seated cross-legged on the seabed. He was so big that when he extended his hands, he could easily cover the entire Sea of Abyss. The Sea of Abyss was even too small to be used as a bath tube for him.
“Weng weng weng~” The shackles on his body suddenly shone brightly in gold light. Many golden inscriptions began lighting up on those shackles. Some of those shackles which looked him down on the seabed began loosening too. They started floating and giving off waves of bright light.
A low growl of agonizing pain.
The Sea of Abyss Master abruptly opened his eyes. They were filled with coldness.
‘Is it finally time for me to go for a patrol?’ The eyes of the Sea of Abyss Master were filled with a strand of excitement that could hardly be suppressed.
Being the most terrifying prisoner in the entire Sacred World…
The torture and restriction on his body were much stronger. Other Chaotic Origin Prisoners could go for a ‘patrol’ anytime they wanted! But only the ‘Sea of Abyss Master’ was restricted to the extent that he could not stand up during most occasions! He could only sit down cross-legged until the moment those shackles began loosening and separating from the seabed. That was when he could leave the Sea of Abyss.
‘This is truly painful.’ The body of the Sea of Abyss Master trembled. This pain was increasing significantly over time. It was also forcing him to leave the Sea of Abyss.
Only when he went out for a patrol.
Only when he traveled to a distance far from his territory would the intense pain lighten.
‘Those damned Overlords! They are forcing me, forcing me! All of you are going to regret this!’ The Sea of Abyss Master abruptly stood.
When he stood up, it caused the sea water of the entire Sea of Abyss to sway, forming huge waves all over.
When the towering figure of the Sea of Abyss Master stood up, the vast ‘Sea of Abyss’ started falling!
His legs were on the seabed.
And as he stood, the sea was merely at the waist level of the Sea of Abyss Master.
He looked up wards and let out a furious roar. “Hong long long~” That terrifying roar brought about an intense tremor up in the sky above the Sea of Abyss. The membrane wall of the world shattered, revealing many thin shackle-like inscriptions.
