Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 975: The Appearance of the Realm Heart Order
“Now that we understand they how they came out–by relying on void-ification, we have to think of ways to stop it.” Ancestor Sorcerer frowned and shook his head, “It was said that Monarch Nine Cloud of the past had a technique that could unravel this. I could achieve the same result for a short period when I use my absolute technique too, but it is almost impossible for me to apply it over a large area like the ‘spatial barrier’.”
Blade Emperor and Void Primogenitor nodded.
The spatial barrier was too immense. It surrounded the Lost World Corridor, the inner region and outer region. It completely sealed everything within.
Given how vast it was… Monarch Nine Cloud could actually employ his technique into an array covering the entire area. It’s a pity that he died. Ancestor Sorcerer and the others did not know how to seal ‘void-ification’ over such a huge area.
“It seems we can only target their individual weaknesses.” Ancestor Sorcerer said.
“Mn, now that one died because of his weak soul and willpower, it should be the case for the other too.” Blade Emperor nodded.
Xue Ying said: “During my interrogation, I obtain knowledge that the one who died had just emerged and was only at the peak of the eighth level. His soul and willpower should be amongst the bottom of all peak eighth level golden-armored Destruction Devils.” That was the case. The reason why General Mo Gu was so strong had been due to the pampering of the ‘kings’. His soul and willpower were comparatively weaker.
“And the other who has the shadowless talent has long reached the ninth level.” Xue Ying said, “It will be much more troublesome dealing against him by targeting his soul.”
Even Xue Ying was not confident of doing it.
Xue Ying was able to deal against ninth level golden-armored Destruction Devils who were weaker in their heart. But those with strong willpower could maintain consciousness under his illusory realm. For instance, that single-horned golden-armored Destruction Devil was able to keep his consciousness in the presence of Xue Ying’s technique. It was also highly probable for the other golden-armored Destruction Devil who had the shadowless talent to maintain his consciousness under Xue Ying’s illusory realm. With that, he could easily escape.
“Dong Bo, you should be the best in techniques targeting the soul.” Ancestor Sorcerer shook his head, “I might have similar techniques, but I do not study the soul.”
Blade Emperor and Void Primogenitor turned silent.
That no Cosmos Gods specialized in dealing against the soul.
“We do not have techniques that target this problem directly.” Ancestor Sorcerer said, “What we can do is to rely on some crude method to increase the difficulty of penetration using void-ification. The moment we confirm their positions, World Ancestor should be able to break their technique.”
Xue Ying faintly understood that Ancestor Sorcerer required time to perform his absolute move that could unravel the void-ification technique. Comparatively, World Ancestor might be able to do it in an instant. Hence, it was more appropriate for World Ancestor to act.
“Oh right.” Xue Ying said, “I’ve also interrogated, getting knowledge that there are a total of 11 ‘kings’ in the Destruction Devil race. Actually, there have been 15 kings in history, and four has died in total. Currently, the strongest of the kings is someone called Emperor Jun.”
“11 kings?” Ancestor Sorcerer, Blade Emperor, and Void Primogenitor’s expression changed.
“They actually concealed such a formidable strength.” Blade Emperor asked next, “Dong Bo, are you able to find out how many golden-armored graded lairs do they have?”
“I’ve asked before. This is also a secret amongst the Destruction Devils, so they aren’t sure either. It should not be many.” Xue Ying answered, “I reckon not more than 10.”
This was the biggest harvest the cultivators had.
The cultivators were able to find out the true strength of the Destruction Devils! They also knew of the method the Destruction Devils employed to bypass the spatial barrier. Xue Ying had even killed one of the two Destruction Devils with the shadowless talent.
And on the other side.
The Destruction Devils were all furious.
“The identity of General Mo Gu has been revealed. We only have one with the shadowless talent left–General Fu Qian!”
“There were even golden-armored Destruction Devils captured alive this time. They were the protectors of General Mo Gu and knew about the talent of General Mo Gu. Hence, this shadowless talent must have been revealed.”
“From now on…”
“We must not start a war so readily.”
“We’ve all been to the cultivator’s world. It is time for us to wait in the Lost World Corridor patiently. Let us wait until we get another devil with the shadowless talent before inciting another war. We can’t afford to lose General Fu Qian.”
“It is all because of that Dong Bo Xue Ying again.”
“Everyone, calm down. Endure for a longer period. We would become stronger over time and will have an overwhelming advantage against the cultivators. At that time, there is no need for us to bypass their barrier so sneakily. We can simply besiege the spatial barrier.”
“Mn, we can only endure for now.”
The Destruction Devils modified their strategies rapidly. They only had one with the shadowless talent left, and they could not afford to lose him.
Great Void Heaven Temple.
The Mirage Palace Hall cavern-dwelling occupied a huge area. This was after all one of the 13 palace halls within the Great Void Heaven Temple.
“Formidable, truly formidable.” Void Primogenitor sat there scrutinizing the golden scaled armor that was hung. Void Primogenitor exclaimed in admiration as he inspected the armor. He had after all attained the pinnacle of the void. Hence, his knowledge of the profound mysteries inherent in this fine golden scaled armor was the deepest.
Ancestor Sorcerer had also sent an incarnation over. He was there inspecting the armor thoroughly, frowning and shaking his head occasionally.
Xue Ying was also researching by the side.
“The limit of void-ification?”
Swordmaster and Forefather Tian Yu were both inspecting it too.
Even Devil Mountain Primogenitor sent his incarnation over. He sat by the side drinking while inspecting the armor. Clearly, many Cosmos Gods desired to have this ‘pinnacle of void-ification’ technique because ordinary attacks would lose effectiveness once they learned it in addition to their soul at the Cosmos God strength. Even Sacred Master would have a hard time killing them.
But achieving the pinnacle of void-ification was difficult. Even Gu Qi had not reached the grand perfection stage. Previously, only Monarch Nine Cloud and Void Primogenitor had succeeded, which went to show how high the demand was on one’s attainment of the void.
And this scaled armor seemed more simplified, bringing newfound hope to the Cosmos Gods.
“Too difficult. Too difficult.” Devil Mountain Primogenitor shook his head. He continued drinking.
Xue Ying was instead experiencing a great deal from this.
After all, he was a Voidwalker and had reached the 50th level realm. He also had the four-diagrams absolute art created by Monarch Nine Cloud. In terms of the foundation on the void aspect, only Void Primogenitor who was present currently had attainments above him. The other Cosmos Gods could not compare with his current understanding.
The group of Cosmos God incarnations stayed here studying the armor whereas Xue Ying went back to his own cultivation room after finishing his round of research.
He closed the door to the cultivation room. With the techniques of Great Void Heaven Temple and Xue Ying’s personal illusory realm technique, none were able to spy on anything inside.
‘I haven’t checked through the spoils of war this time.’ Xue Ying waved his hand. This time, of the six Destruction Devils, four were dead, and two were temporarily locked in Great Void Heaven Temple. Naturally, he seized all the treasures and easily refined over them. Xue Ying began pouring out all the items.
A large number of items appeared continuously. Fortunately, being one of the hall masters, this cultivation room occupied a considerable area that was several kilometers long. It could be used to deduce techniques too.
‘These are items belonging to the cultivators. They should be taken from the cultivators after the Destruction Devils killed them right?’ Xue Ying felt kind of frustrated when he saw these. Very soon, he removed all the items from the storage treasures. Xue Ying had even discovered many cultivators imprisoned in them–and they would be given their freedom back.
“Hong long long~” As the items were brought out, they clashed against each other, letting out booming sounds and piled up into a tiny mountain.
As it quietened, Xue Ying’s vision landed on a particular area of this tiny mountain. It was clearly empty, yet it was currently propping up other items. Furthermore, Xue Ying had absolute control over his surrounding, and was able to hear the slight clashing sound from this ’empty area’.
‘It is transparent and can’t be seen? Furthermore, even my domain is unable to perceive its existence?’ Xue Ying walked over with shock. As he got closer, that item which was initially transparent and could not be seen became clearer. It was a scarlet plate with profound characters imbibed on it. The profound characters easily gave off the meaning–
‘Realm Heart Order’, these three words!
Realm Heart Order. It was something truly mystical. Only when one obtained its approval could he see and obtain it. Otherwise, it was impossible for the person to see it despite it being located right in front of him.
