Archean Eon Art - Chapter 133
Chapter 133 – The Meeting Between Two Supremacies
The servants in the cave abode were sweeping away the snow when they suddenly heard a deep rumbling sound. They looked around for the source of the sound.
“Look over there.”
The servants watched saber beams of lightning—coming from the training grounds—arc into the sky in shock. They distorted the void, sending blasts of air in all directions. These beams struck the horizon, tearing through the sky for more than half a kilometer before dissipating.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Saber beams formed one after another. In the blink of an eye, over a hundred saber beams were produced. Each saber beam was terrifying. The saber beams caused an area, a kilometer away, to be enveloped by explosions.
“Lord Meng Chuan is so powerful?”
“I heard that Lord Meng Chuan has already cleared the Nine Mystical Caves test and is about to leave the mountain. This is the strength of a Great Solar Godfiend, right?” The servants whispered. Ever since he became a Great Solar Godfiend, Meng Chuan had never unleashed his full strength.
Liu Qiyue also came to the training grounds due to the ruckus. Meng Chuan held a blood-colored long saber in his hand as he slashed out saber beams that traveled a kilometer before dissipating.
“You’re here.” Meng Chuan sheathed his saber and smiled at Qiyue.
“Ah Chuan, your saber art feels even stronger,” exclaimed Liu Qiyue.
“It’s thanks to Demon Slayer,” said Meng Chuan. “However, when fighting a truly powerful demon monarch, I need to focus all my might into a single point before unleashing it. My attacks’ might are too scattered if I attack from such a distance. It’s suitable for attacking multiple enemies, but it isn’t useful against strong enemies. Furthermore, it drains my Quintessential quickly.”
“Then why did you try it?” asked Liu Qiyue with a smile.
“I wanted to test its might. By fully unleashing my strength, I can see its power more clearly,” said Meng Chuan.
Liu Qiyue nodded and immediately said, “Quick, let’s have lunch. The food is ready; it’ll turn cold if we waste any more time.”
“Let’s go. I’m already hungry.” Meng Chuan smiled as he left the training grounds with Qiyue. As for the Power of Essence Soul? He had already finished his experiment.
He was now a Great Solar Godfiend. In terms of Godfiend Bodies and Quintessential Essence, he exceeded ordinary Great Solar Godfiends greatly. He had also attained Greater Mastery of Saber Soul.
When his Essence Soul was still at the first stage, the Power of Essence Soul only increased his strength by fifty percent! Such a strength increase could be considered quite helpful, but it didn’t help him as much compared to when he was a mortal.
When his Essence Soul had reached the second stage, the Power of Essence Soul had undergone a qualitative change! His Essence Soul could interact with reality, allowing him to move objects over 50 kilograms heavy.
His strength doubled when he infused the Power of Essence Soul with his body and Quintessential Essence. In other words, he was roughly three times stronger than before. However, he could only deliver seven strikes of such strength before his Power of Essence Soul was depleted. Utilizing his current body and Quintessential Essence required much more effort than when he was a mortal. His body was a small rock when he was a mortal. Now, his body was a mountain.
If he used only the Power of Essence Soul to draw power from his body, his strength would increase by sixty percent! With such strength, he could probably attack 15 times.
If the Power of Essence Soul had only fused with his Great Solar Quintessential Essence, his strength would be doubled. He estimated he could deliver 50 attacks of such strength!
His body was a small portion of his strength, but the physical body was complicated. It was difficult to draw upon its strength.
In comparison, the Essence Soul can draw upon Quintessential Essence more easily, and the consumption of Power of Essence Soul is lesser. Meng Chuan was pleased.
Human Godfiends cultivated their Quintessential Essence. Great Solar Quintessential Essence’s power was indeed terrifying. The Power of Essence Soul increased his strength greatly when his Quintessential Essence was fused with it.
I can use the Power of Essence Soul to double my strength! This will be my normal killer move. I can attack fifty times with such strength. It would not affect me much if I use such strength from time to time. When I unleash my full strength, my normal strength triples. I need to be careful. I have to reserve some Power of Essence Soul for critical moments.
The results of his experimentation bolstered Meng Chuan’s confidence. His second-level Essence Soul gave him more confidence at killing enemies. He also had an additional trump card.
All disciples came to attend the lecture. Every disciple placed great importance on the lectures at Grotto-Heaven Pavilion. Everyone knew that the Supremacy held extremely high status in Archean Mountain. His status was higher than Archean Mountain Lord. Anybody who had common sense knew that the Supremacy was an existence above Regis Godfiends. The Supremacy gave the disciples the best advice.
They could ask the Supremacy for guidance if they encountered problems. They naturally treasured these lectures.
Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue were only leaving after the 15th of November. Currently, they didn’t even know which city pass they would be assigned to, so they naturally continued attending lectures.
“Senior Brother Meng.”
“Senior Sister Liu.”
After Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue entered Grotto-Heaven Pavilion, many juniors showed respect. After all, they were the only two Great Solar Godfiends that had not descended the mountain yet. They even had transcendent-grade Godfiend bodies. Who wouldn’t respect them?
They sat beside each other in the first row.
Meng Chuan, Liu Qiyue, and Yan Chitong were in the first row. Ji Yuantong and Yan Jin were in the second row. Princess Li Ying alternated between the third and fourth rows. Among the same batch of disciples, Zong Sha, Chu Yong, Yan Feng, Ning Yibo, and a few other disciples had already left the mountain. Their Nine Mystical Caves test was naturally easier than Meng Chuan’s. They were Indestructible Godfiends when they left.
“Master is here.”
All the disciples immediately fell silent.
An invisible aura enveloped Grotto-Heaven Pavilion’s hall. The long-haired Supremacy walked in. When he looked at Meng Chuan, his eyes were filled with unconcealable shock. However, all the disciples bowed respectfully—no one dared to look at their master directly. They bowed respectfully. “Greetings, Master.”
“Have a seat,” said the Supremacy calmly.
Only then did all the disciples sit down.
The Supremacy continued lecturing and answering questions like before, but he could barely contain his shock. Second-level Essence Soul? Meng Chuan has already reached the Kinesis stage?
Normally, Great Solar Godfiends would first reach the Realm of Dao before attaining an Essence Soul after seeking answers from their inner self. After condensing an Essence Soul, most would enter the Darkstar realm quickly.
Marquis Godfiend needed years of cultivation before they could enter the Kinesis stage with great difficulty. This was because weapon arts were for killing. As for the arts, they were for one to express their inner feelings. In comparison, those who reached the Realm of Dao with the arts would seek answers from their inner self more often.
He’s only twenty-nine this year, and his Essence Soul has already reached the second stage? The Supremacy was secretly astonished. He can be compared to Senior Tan You’an from humanity’s history.
Tan You’an was a calligraphy sage with unprecedented skill in calligraphy. He had condensed an Essence Soul when he was a mortal through calligraphy. At the age of 28, his Essence Soul reached the Kinesis stage.
Tan You’an’s Essence Soul reached the seventh stage. Furthermore, he was a Regis Godfiend. Back then, there was strife among five nations. Tan You’an was personally killed by another nation’s Supremacy during the five human nations’ conflict! Before the demons invaded their world, humanity had always been fighting against one another. Even a few top sects had been destroyed. Only Archean Mountain lasted the longest.
The three supreme sects originally had plenty of grudges against one another. However, after joining forces to resist the demons over the years, everyone threw their hatred to the side and focused on their common enemy.
Most of the current Regis and Marquis Godfiends were born after the demons had invaded the human world. They were naturally more united. Only Creation Supremacies had truly experienced the bloodshed between the sects.
His talent in the saber isn’t too high. In this era, there are plenty who are better than him. Xue Feng’s talent in the sword is higher than his. The Supremacy’s heart trembled. However, his talent in painting is enough to match Senior Tan You’an’s talent in calligraphy.
The Supremacy continued his lecture, and left when he was done. He went to his study alone and took out a cyan ruler. It had beautiful patterns on it, looking extremely exquisite; it also possessed a mysterious aura.
“Luotang.” Supremacy wielded the cyan ruler and easily activated it.
An illusory female figure appeared in the study. She was dressed in a golden-white robe and exuded a natural air of nobility. She smiled at the Supremacy. “Qin Wu, why are you looking for me?”
“Our Archean Mountain now has a junior named Meng Chuan. He’s only twenty-nine years old this year. He’s a Great Solar Godfiend with Greater Mastery of Saber Soul. He has a perfected Lightning Devastator Fiend Body,” said Supremacy. “His talent in painting is unprecedented, capable of matching Senior Tan You’an’s. His Essence Soul is already at the Kinesis stage. I wish to open Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven and send him in.”
“Open Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven?” The illusory woman’s eyes contained surprise.
