Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 948: Innate Talent
Deep within the Lost World Corridor, in a concealed room.
There was a quiet icy-snow palace hall with six figures currently seated inside. Their auras were all hidden. Some were wearing black armor, and some in violet armor. Some were even wearing robes that cultivators usually wear. There were even two who had humanoid appearances.
“Little Sister Xue Yong, what’s the matter that made you call us over?”
“Those fools have let Little Sister Xue Yong command them. You can just make your own decision for most of the matters, and there’s no need to come and find us.” The other five figures were all very casual. They did not give out the ordinary wicked aura standard Destruction Devils should have. It was to the extent that most cultivators could not discern their unique background should they change their appearances.
A girl wearing a full-body snow-white armor giggled: “Little sister knows that all my brothers are fully concentrated on cultivating, and do not really care about matters of those fools. But there is indeed a huge matter that little sister has to tell brothers.”
The five other turned and looked at this white-armored girl.
“Brothers should know that our eighth golden-armored lair is the newest grown lair. Currently, the first batch of ‘golden-armored Destruction Devils’ is being nurtured now.” The snow-white-armored girl said.
“Mn. But there isn’t anything noteworthy to mention regarding those fools who have yet to transcend beyond the control of the supreme laws, and are frequently controlled by the desires of slaughter.” A black-robed young man sneered while casually fanning himself.
“In the first batch of golden-armored Destruction Devils nurtured in the eighth golden-armored lair, there is a very unique talent, which I determined to be the ‘shadowless’ talent.” The snow-white-armored girl giggled. She casually swept her gaze across the other five. It was as she expected. The other five Destruction Devils who reached the Cosmos God level became quiet.
They were all looking at this snow-white-armored girl.
“Quick quick quick, let’s go.”
“It is actually the shadowless talent. Quick.”
“Little Sister Xue Yong, you better not lie to us.”
They were all being very excited.
“How could I lie about such a huge matter? Go go go, fellow brothers, let’s go and have a look.” The snow-white-armored girl giggled.
The six figures flashed before forming a faint light. They rapidly left this space. Even though they were crossing through the spatial corridor, they would occasionally disappear after entering certain fluctuations within the spatial corridor. Although one might get lost in the ‘spatial corridor’ easily, and that they might even be teleported into a lost zone…
There were some fluctuations where one could use to teleport further amidst the countless dangers.
The Destruction Devils were too familiar with the ‘Lost World Corridor’. This was their home, and they could easily discern which was for teleportation.
Just half a day later.
The six Cosmos God realm Destruction Devils arrived at a particular spatial lair. This lair had many blood-armored Destruction Devils patrolling it. There were even many golden-armored Destruction Devils patrolling this place with their power hidden. Even if the incarnations of Cosmos Gods arrived here, it was hard for them to get close to this ‘golden-armored graded lair’ without being discovered! Furthermore, the entrance to this golden-armored lair was disguised as a sealed space, making it harder to be found.
To discover a golden-armored graded lair, firstly, one had to be lucky. It was not easy to locate a golden-armored graded lair numbered less than ten in the vast Lost World Corridor. Secondly, one had to be powerful. He had to evade the patrol of the surrounding blood-armored Destruction Devils and golden-armored Destruction Devils. Thirdly, one had to perceive the queerness of space and to force his way through the hidden entrance of the lair.
Only by achieving these three could the party discover a golden-armored graded lair.
Naturally, this was under normal circumstances. If it were Myriad Realm Tavern Master, Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master or Xue Ying, their incarnations could just proceed with ultra-long distance teleportation. Even if they did not enter the lair, they could still peer through the black fog spherical ‘holes’.
The six ‘kings’ entered.
Within the lair.
A golden-armored Destruction Devil was guarding the place. He was solemnly standing on top of a peak just like a sculpture. Suddenly, he opened his eyes and turned to the distance. He saw the six incoming ‘kings’.
“Kings.” This golden-armored Destruction Devil immediately flew over and bowed respectfully.
They came to this world for the sake of destroying things.
Not just the lowest graded gray-armored rank, or the powerful golden-armored rank, all of them were filled with the cravings of destruction. One could say that ‘golden-armored rankers’ had better control, and they could stop their desires to destroy.
Only those who truly broke through the bottleneck of life out of their prisons, reaching the Cosmos God realm could they transcend beyond this control of desire. At this level, they were called by many Destruction Devils as King!
The six ‘kings’ arrived in front of the ancient void tree.
The entire lair had condensed to form an ancient void tree. Being the highest graded Destruction Devil lair, this ‘ancient void tree’ was also exceptionally beautiful. Each branch of it was crystalline, and every branch was constructed from different spaces. Its spatial structure was truly mystical. Even Void Primogenitor and Monarch Nine cloud would find it startling.
The six kings looked up.
There were currently nine golden eggs on this ancient void tree. Some of them were located on the main branch of the ancient tree, and some were on the branches. They were of differing sizes. The nine golden eggs contained different appearances. Some had flames soaring on the surface, and some carried violet fog which appeared and permeated into the egg.
And the smallest egg was located at the center of the main branch of the tree. This smallest ‘golden egg’ was instead occasionally turning translucent and occasionally disappearing completely.
When it disappeared, even the six ‘kings’ with their amazing techniques could not discover traces of the golden eggs.
“This is the shadowless talent?”
The snow-white-armored girl giggled. The other five were watching with shock and joy.
The Destruction Devils were different from the cultivators. The cultivators had to cultivate step by step from a low level. Even the strongest of the void creatures would start from the Void God Origin Birth realm.
But for the Destruction Devils, even the lowest graded gray-armored rank would emerge as one ranging from first to third level standard. They could compete against those at the Unity realm. As for the highest golden-armored rank, they would start from the seventh to ninth level standard. This was unquestionably at the Primal Chaos level. They would have this strength the moment they entered this world.
Where did it come from? It was purely their talent!
They had all sorts of different talents. Some were strange and abnormal. But all of them had a single similarity… they were influenced by the desire to kill! Without breaking through the ceiling of life, they would forever be controlled by the desire to slaughter.
But amongst the talents that emerged in the Destruction Devils, there was yet to be one with the capability for ‘ultra-long distance teleportation’. There was neither one with the ability for ‘predicting the future’ or ‘changing the past’, some of the more heaven-defying talents.
But there was one which had never appeared in the cultivators and appeared only in the Destruction Devils.
That was the ‘shadowless talent’.
The shadowless talent… was about becoming one entity with the void. This meant fusing with the most intrinsic ‘black fog sphere’ of the void. At this moment, they would be part of the primal chaos void, and under normal circumstances, their bodies could not be destroyed! If they were to hide, it was hard for others to find traces of them.
If Xue Ying were around, he would understand that this was achieving the final perfection of Monarch Nine Cloud’s second diagram, the ‘void-ification’ theory.
In reality, one who reached this state did not mean he would be unparalleled.
If a party cultivated the third diagram, ‘controlling the void’ to perfection, or even breaking through the cage and touch on the higher dimension, he should be able to unravel ‘void-ification’.
That time, Monarch Nine Cloud had reached perfection in his void-ification skills, and also reached perfection in his control of the void. As for the fourth diagram, he had yet to complete it. Even so, Sacred Master failed many times in his endeavor of killing him. He had long employed the ‘origin energy’, yet he failed nonetheless. It was only during the final battle where Sacred Master became truly crazy. He fought until the entire primitive Ancient Sacred World was even shattered. That time, Monarch Nine Cloud was heavily injured, and he was able to escape still by using some heaven-defying void techniques.
He even left behind his treasure cove and cavern-dwelling which nobody could snatch away.
Xue Ying could not even enter that place with his ultra-long distance teleportation! One could see how formidable Monarch Nine Cloud was. But he eventually died due to his heavy injuries.
But in reality–
It was still difficult trying to unravel those who reached grand perfection in void-ification.
Monarch Nine Cloud was already dead! And ‘Void Primogenitor’ who walked on another path of the Dao of Void might be quite formidable in his body void-ification too, but he was comparatively weaker in his control of the void. He was lacking in his understanding of the ‘miniature aspect’, and could not even undergo ultra-long distance teleportation. What he could do was ‘ultra-long spatial great movement’, so there was no need to talk about them breaking out of the void prison.
The Sacred Master could have broken out of it, but he was not willing to participate in the battle.
After a moment–
That tiny golden egg appeared once again. It gradually became concrete from half-translucent.
“This is the last egg to appear in this first batch.” The snow-white-armored girl said, “For the sake of nurturing the egg, the tree has redirected much energy into it. The growth of the other eight eggs has been affected as a result. But currently, this egg is about to fully form. After that, its growth will be much faster. It should take less than five billion years. By then, we will have the second Destruction Devil with the shadowless talent.”
