Archean Eon Art - Chapter 309
Chapter 309 – The Sect Cornerstone Technique
“Yes.” Yan Chitong nodded excitedly. He had given up on cultivating both fire and water. Instead, he chose to focus on fire. He was also under mental pressure. Now that he had obtained the approval of King True Martial, Yan Chitong was naturally excited. Because in this era, King True Martial was most qualified to comment on Grandsire Yin Yang’s cultivation lineage.
King True Martial similarly cultivated the Two World Divine Body and followed Grandsire Yin Yang’s cultivation path. However, after he broke through, he used Yin-Yang as his foundation and established his own True Martial lineage. His True Martial lineage’s combat strength was even stronger, and people recognized him as the strongest Archean Mountain Regis Godfiend. Even in secret, Archean Mountain’s Supremacies immediately decided that even if King True Martial couldn’t become a Creation Supremacy, he would definitely become a Dao Protector.
Archean Mountain always had two Dao Protectors.
“Cultivate well. You’re 46 years old this year, and you’ve reached the peak of the Realm of Dao. That’s still a rather young age,” said King True Martial with a smile. “However, it will be even harder for you to reach the Dharma Domain realm. It’s best if you can reach the Dharma Domain realm within 30 years. Attain a third-level Essence Soul before you turn 90 and become a Regis Godfiend.” “There’s still 40 years left.” Yan Chitong was filled with battle intent.
“To you, time is still a little tight. You can’t slack off,” instructed King True Martial before looking at Meng Chuan and Xue Feng. “Both of you too. Hurry up and cultivate. The demons haven’t left much time for us humans.”
Meng Chuan, Yan Chitong, and Xue Feng nodded.
Marquis Godfiends had 300-year lifespans. A 90-year-old Marquis Godfiend was equivalent to a 30-year-old mortal! A typical Marquis Godfiend maintained peak lifeforce before the age of 90. After 90 years of age, the probability of a Marquis Godfiend becoming a Regis Godfiend would slowly decrease. The older one was, the faster the likelihood of them becoming a Regis Godfiend would decrease. A 150-year-old Marquis Godfiend would have very low chances of breaking through to the Seamless realm.
A third-level Essence Soul, the Dharma Domain realm, and one’s age were the three thresholds for becoming a Regis Godfiend. However, Meng Chuan’s physical body cultivation system was very special. Even when he neared the end of his lifespan, his body would still maintain peak lifeforce. One had to depend on luck to obtain this physical body legacy from Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven. Furthermore, this physical body cultivation system had strict requirements on one’s Essence Soul.
In the days to come, they continued cultivating. Occasionally, treasures would descend, but they never encountered treasures like the Spacetime Floating Ice again.
One day-half a year after Meng Chuan and company entered the World Gap.
“Golden Wind Fusion as Black Sand. Gold. Extreme Yang. Wind. Takes the form of the shadow.” Xue Feng muttered to himself. He held his sword as he executed his sword techniques. Each strike was originally ordinary, but they gradually caused the surrounding void to tremble. Huh? Meng Chuan, who was cultivating, was alarmed by the trembling void and ground. What’s going on? Meng Chuan looked for the source of the phenomena.
It was Xue Feng, who was practicing his sword art. Xue Feng’s entire body emitted black light. The black light within Xue Feng’s became even denser. Endless black light scattered in all directions. This was a very strange scene. Black light scattered in all directions, enveloping the sky and earth.
The black light enveloped everything within a five-kilometer radius of Xue Feng as the void trembled.
Meng Chuan, Yan Chitong, King True Martial, and King Calm Sea had domains protecting them, preventing the black light from affecting them.
It’s the Fifteen Golden Wind Swords from Black Sand Grotto-Heaven. Meng Chuan quickly recognized the sword art and was even more shocked. Xue Feng actually mastered this secret art? As an Archean Mountain disciple, he had managed to master Black Sand Grotto-Heaven’s most difficult ultimate technique?
“Feng’er?” King Calm Sea was also astonished. He was extremely proud. He thought nothing of most Regis Godfiends in the world. Although he slightly favored his most outstanding son, Xue Feng, he didn’t care too much about him. No matter how outstanding he was, he was inferior to himself. However, King Calm Sea now realized that his son’s talent was in no way inferior to his.
“In Black Sand Grotto-Heaven’s Black Sand lineage, Fifteen Golden Wind Swords is the most difficult ultimate technique to cultivate,” said King True Martial with a smile as he came to King Calm Sea’s side. “Black Sand Grotto-Heaven is split into three lineages. The Grand Yin lineage and the Halberd lineage are both branch lineages. The sect master’s Black Sand lineage is the main lineage. When a Regis Godfiend masters the core arts-Black Sand Fiend Body and Fifteen Golden Wind Swords—they can become the sect leader and obtain Black Sand Grotto-Heaven’s mysterious Imperial Lord heritage. Junior Brother Xue, if your son were in Black Sand Grotto-Heaven, they would definitely be ecstatic.”
“Yes.” King Calm Sea stared at his son, who was practicing his swordplay.
“The three major sects exchange Black Metal Sutras with each other,” said King True Martial wistfully. “However, each sect has a core ultimate technique. Two World Island’s core ultimate technique is the Yin-Yang Art matched with the Two World Divine Body. Black Sand Grotto-Heaven’s core ultimate technique is Fifteen Golden Wind Swords matched with the Black Sand Fiend Body. Archean Mountain’s core ultimate technique is the Five Directions Palm matched with the Archean Divine Body.”
There were many Black Metal Sutras in human history, but most of them were at the Creation level. Only a few were at the Imperial Lord level. For example, the Yin-Yang Art-created by Grandsire Yin Yang
—was at the Imperial Lord level. Fifteen Golden Wind Swords was also at the Imperial Lord level. Likewise for the Five Directions Palm.
The Heart Intent Saber Art—which Meng Chuan cultivated-only had one move that reached the Imperial Lord level—the Heart Saber Stance. All the other moves were at the Creation Level. Therefore, the Black Metal Sutra was considered to be at the half-step Imperial Lord level. Humans had very few Imperial Lord-level ultimate techniques. It was very difficult for them to achieve anything significant.
For instance, Archean Mountain Lord cultivated multiple Black Metal Sutras—the Archean Combat Body, Five Directions World, and the Archean Seal Art. However, he had yet to master Five Directions Palm! Therefore, although he was an Archean Mountain Regis Godfiend, he usually handled secular matters and wasn’t famous for his combat strength.
“The human race’s strongest ultimate technique is Samsara Divine Body matched with Ancestral Master Archean Eon’s ultimate technique, Samsara,” said King True Martial. “The second strongest would be the core ultimate techniques of the three major sects. Xue Feng mastered Fifteen Golden Wind Swords the moment he reached the Dharma Domain realm. Your son is truly impressive, Junior Brother Xue.”
King Calm Sea nodded slightly without saying a word.Xue Feng only stopped after practicing for a while. He quickly recovered his lucidity after awakening from his epiphany. “Senior Brother Xue, congratulations,” said Yan Chitong with a smile. Meng Chuan, King True Martial, and King Calm Sea also walked over.
Xue Feng was overjoyed. “I didn’t expect to make a breakthrough just like that.”
“It’s said that Black Sand Grotto-Heaven’s Black Sand lineage has many secret heritages that can assist with one’s cultivation,” said Yan Chitong with a smile. “However, no Regis Godfiend in this generation has mastered the Fifteen Golden Wind Swords and the Black Sand Fiend Body. Senior Brother Xue relied on just the Black Metal Sutra’s intent guidance to master it by himself. I’m afraid that Black Sand Grotto-Heaven Godfiends will be extremely envious.”
“If you were in Black Sand Grotto-Heaven, you might have a chance of becoming an Imperial Lord.” King True Martial sighed.
“Imperial Lord is just an ephemeral concept. It’s been many years since the human race has produced an Imperial Lord.” Xue Feng shook his head. “I don’t dare to imagine becoming one.”
King True Martial said, “If you were in Black Sand Grotto-Heaven, you would have a much higher chance of becoming a Creation Supremacy. After news of you mastering the Fifteen Golden Wind Swords spreads, I think that Black Sand Grotto-Heaven will try to recruit you…” “I won’t betray Archean Mountain.” Xue Feng shook his head.
“Not in the past, but it’s possible now that we are facing the demon threat.” King True Martial smiled. “Of course, this is a matter between two sects. First, the sect has to agree, and secondly, it’s your own decision.”
King Calm Sea looked at his son from the side like this was the first time he saw his son.
