Archean Eon Art - Chapter 496
Chapter 496 – Azurewater Realm
The cyan-scaled alien expert hurriedly said, “Senior, there’s something I need to report to you immediately.”
Meng Chuan looked at him. “Speak.”
“Blood Yang Realm’s Fang Chang wanted to capture you because he wanted to explore the cave abode of a Tribulation Eminence,” reported the cyan-scaled alien. “Fang Chang left a mark beside the cave abode, but I didn’t leave one. I can still find the cave abode if I bring you there now. If too much time passes, I might not be able to find it again.” Meng Chuan’s eyes lit up. “Where’s the cave abode?” “Let me take you there,” said the cyan-scaled alien expert immediately. “It’s not too far away.”
Meng Chuan nodded. “Let’s go.” He couldn’t afford to miss the opportunity that came knocking on his door.
The cyan-scaled alien led Meng Chuan in a very obsequious manner. He was very afraid. He was afraid that the senior would find him useless after reading his memories and kill him in passing. Therefore, he had to make use of the time to please him, hoping that this senior Eastcalm would spare his life.
“If my estimates of its moving speed are correct, the cave abode should be in the surrounding area.” The cyan-scaled alien expert brought Meng Chuan to an area in the void and circled the area. However, he was somewhat puzzled. “Senior, I’ll take a closer look.”
“Is that cave abode over 500 kilometers in size?” asked Meng Chuan.
The cyan-scaled alien expert nodded immediately. “The cave abode is on a piece of stellar debris. The stellar debris is indeed more than 500 kilometers long.”
“Follow me.” After reaching the Chaos Hole realm, Meng Chuan was extremely sensitive to the world around him. He immediately flew with the cyan-scaled alien expert in tow. He could clearly sense the void ripples caused by the stellar debris’s high-speed flight as he approached his target.
“Right there.” The cyan-scaled alien revealed a look of delight. “Senior, you are indeed amazing.” Through the void ripples, Meng Chuan could determine its size.
Two figures descended.
Only when he was 50 kilometers away did the stellar debris appear in his vision. After all, this Tribulation Eminence’s cave abode contained an array formation that isolated all light around the stellar debris. From afar, one couldn’t see the cave abode with the naked eye.
As for the void ripples, one had to be close enough to detect them. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to sense them from afar. Even the cyan-scaled alien expert, Qing Gu, couldn’t find it after shortly leaving it. Even the purple-robed Fang Chang had deliberately left behind a mark.
What a powerful cave abode. Meng Chuan also saw the cave abode in front of him.
The cave abode spanned over 50 kilometers and was located in the middle of the stellar debris’s surface. The array formation enveloped the area.
“We’ve tried exploring it a few times,” said the cyan-scaled alien expert. “We already tried to enter the cave abode. I had my Essence Soul avatar enter, but the cave abode’s sword beams killed it. However, from the looks of it… there shouldn’t be any cultivators inside this cave abode.”
“If the owner of this Tribulation Eminence’s cave abode was present, the lot of you wouldn’t have been able to land on the stellar debris.” Meng Chuan carefully examined the cave abode, his heart filled with anticipation.
The array formation was intact, and the entire cave abode was intact. This meant that the cave abode was not occupied. The cave abode was a treasure. If an outsider were to occupy the cave abode, they would have long stored it away.
It was possible that the Tribulation Eminence failed to survive the tribulation and died. Therefore, the cave abode he left behind might have all his treasures and corpse left behind. For instance, it was rare for someone like Ancestral Master Archean Eon—who reached the Seventh Tribulation realm—to die in his hometown peacefully.
Most Tribulation Eminences ended up dying during their tribulations!
Tribulations were the greatest obstacle for every Tribulation Eminence.
“Senior, Fang Chang had previously bound this stellar debris and made it fly towards Blood Yang Realm,” said the cyan-scaled alien immediately.
Towards Blood Yang World? Meng Chuan was alarmed.
With a thought, lightning appeared in his surrounding 500 kilometers, forming a lightning domain.
The lightning domain began to restrain the stellar debris.
Due to the negligible resistance in the outer realm, the stellar debris could fly at high speeds for a long time. However, under Meng Chuan’s control, the stellar debris began to slow down. In just a few seconds, it completely stopped.
“It stopped without any void ripples,” said the cyan-scaled alien obsequiously. “Unless one is within 5,000 kilometers of it and tries to locate the stellar debris with their own domain, it’s impossible to find it. There’s nothing within a trillion kilometers in the outer realm. It’s impossible for someone to come within 5,000 kilometers of this stellar debris.”
Meng Chuan nodded slightly.
It was much harder to find stellar debris that had isolated light from the outside world than finding a needle in a haystack.
Meng Chuan looked at the cyan-scaled alien expert. “I’ll take a quick look through your memories to confirm that you didn’t lie. As long as you didn’t lie, I’ll spare your life. If you dare lie to me… Humph.”
“I wouldn’t dare. I wouldn’t dare at all,” said the cyan-scaled alien expert obsequiously. “I only want to live. Senior, please check my Essence Soul memories.”
Meng Chuan nodded.
After all, the cyan-scaled expert had a sixth-level Essence Soul. Meng Chuan could only check his memories if he didn’t resist.
The cyan-scaled expert was extremely obedient as he allowed Meng Chuan to read his memories.
The cyan-scaled alien expert came from the low-level world, Azurewater Realm. He was also the strongest expert of Azurewater Realm!
Azurewater Realm had a history of hundreds of millions of years. It was considered a relatively young world with life.
In Azurewater Realm’s history, only one Imperial Lord had been born! On average, a Supremacy was born every 100,000 years. In Azurewater Realm, a Supremacy would reign supreme once they were born. It meant that they were invincible in the world.
There’s only one Tribulation treasure in the entire Azurewater Realm. Unless one reaches the Imperial Lord realm, one is forbidden from bringing it out of their homeworld? Meng Chuan sighed inwardly. This was what a low-level world is like. A Tribulation treasure is extremely important. It’s the most important treasure in the entire Azurewater Realm. All of Azurewater Realm’s Supremacies study the Tribulation treasure’s runic patterns and figure out a cultivation direction.
The strongest manual in Azurewater Realm is an Imperial Lord-level ultimate technique. It’s also of the Windfire lineage. It’s not suitable for most Supremacies.
Meng Chuan sighed inwardly. One’s cultivation required a direction and their predecessors’ experiences. It was just like how it was extremely difficult for mortals to become Godfiends without manuals! Archean Eon Realm had only created the Godfiend cultivation system after experiencing a long period of savageness. To go from nothing to something was harder than mortals becoming a Supremacy. It was almost impossible for a Supremacy to reach the Fifth Tribulation realm or Sixth Tribulation realm without manuals. After all, they were cultivating blindly.
From shallow to deep mysteries, a manual with detailed guidance could guide one to a profound realm.
It was obvious how important such manuals were.
A Tribulation treasure had similar uses. By comprehending a Tribulation treasure’s runic patterns, they could receive guidance in a particular direction.
This Supremacy Qing Gu’s homeworld’s Tribulation treasure isn’t suitable for him. Meng Chuan flipped through his memories and understood everything about him. During his cultivation, he received an Imperial Lord-level legacy from Fang Chang. He also gained insights after studying the runic patterns on an Imperial Lord-level weapon, Nine Dragon Chain.
Qing Gu had only obtained an ordinary Imperial Lord-level legacy because Fang Chang had given it to him. The Nine Dragon Chain was obtained by Qing Gu by chance when he followed Fang Chang.
An ordinary Imperial Lord-level technique doesn’t even have the right to be placed in Star Cluster Building. Meng Chuan thought of his homeworld. Every manual in Star Cluster Building is a top technique.
For example, the lightning lineage Imperial Lord-level techniques-Lightning Walk, Lightning Fire Body Tempering Art, and Dark Lightning-could be considered incomplete Imperial Lord-level paramount techniques. To a certain extent, these three techniques had the might of an Imperial Lord-level paramount technique, but they had flaws. For example, the Lightning Fire Body Tempering Art allowed one’s body to match a Fifth Tribulation Eminence. It was indeed comparable to an Imperial Lord-level paramount technique. However, it had one flaw-one’s body would no longer be able to improve once they cultivated their body into a weapon.
Although these three techniques had flaws, they allowed an Imperial Lord to fight those at higher realms. Since Ancestral Master Archean Eon was willing to leave them in the Star Cluster Building, it showed how special they were.
Three World Saber and Lightning Realm were even more impressive techniques. A Sixth Tribulation ultimate technique could threaten Seventh Tribulation Eminences. Ancestral Master Archean Eon could find many Sixth Tribulation ultimate techniques, but he ultimately kept only two from the lightning lineage. To tempt King Calm Sea, the demons had offered a rather good ultimate technique to him. With the demons’ heritage, it was considered a good ultimate technique in the outer realm. However, after King Calm Sea obtained the Star Cluster Building’s ultimate techniques, he couldn’t be bothered to read them anymore.
So this is how tragic a low-level world is. Meng Chuan sighed. It’s already this difficult to find an Imperial Lord-level ultimate technique that suits one perfectly. It’s no wonder these Supremacies are willing to follow experts.
They had no choice. The things that slipped through the cracks of an expert’s fingers could delight Supremacies from low-level worlds greatly.
This Supremacy Qing Gu’s greatest wish is to perfect his homeworld’s cultivation system. Meng Chuan sighed inwardly.
Their cultivation system was incomplete.
In contrast, Archean Eon Realm’s Godfiend cultivation system was only flawed when one reached the perfected Imperial Lord realm to the Tribulation realm. Only the Samsara Divine Body was considered perfect.
The cultivation system from Supremacy Qing Gu’s homeworld-Azurewater Realm-had flaws at the Supremacy realm. Despite reaching the required Essence Soul realm and the Grotto-Heaven realm, they just couldn’t break through no matter how young they were! It was purely because of a flaw in the cultivation system.
This was also the reason why Azurewater Realm only produced a Supremacy every 100,000 years. If the cultivation system was perfected, a Supremacy might appear every few millennia.
Meng Chuan sighed. A suitable cultivation system… The aquatic creatures in Azurewater Realm had sharp claws and scales. They were very different from humans. Their physical characteristics were different.
The cultivation system of each world wasn’t universal unless one had a similar body type. For example, Ancestral Master Archean Eon had collected many legacies suitable for humans, such as the Cosmos Body cultivation system. Ancestral Master Archean Eon wouldn’t harm his descendants by leaving the legacies that were not suitable for them.
Archean Eon Realm has obtained many legacies from elsewhere, but the most suitable cultivation system for the world’s inhabitants is our self-created Godfiend system. If Azurewater Realm can give birth to a Tribulation Eminence, perhaps their cultivation system will be perfected up to the Supremacy realm. However, it would be very difficult.
Every world and civilization had their own hardships.
“Senior.” Supremacy Qing Gu sensed that Meng Chuan had stopped reading his memories. He raised his head and looked at Meng Chuan in horror.
Meng Chuan sighed.
After reading through his memories, he gained a deeper understanding of him. All Supremacy Qing Gu wanted was to learn more ultimate techniques from the outer realm. He wanted to learn more and help his homeworld.
Compared to the countless worlds in the outer realm, Qing Gu’s homeworld was too backward! It was too weak! This ‘weakness’ made Supremacy Qing Gu grit his teeth. He took risks just to make his homeworld stronger.
“In the future, just call me Eastcalm,” said Meng Chuan. “There’s no need to address me as Senior.”
“Yes, yes,” said Supremacy Qing Gu immediately.
“As long as you are obedient, I won’t treat you poorly,” said Meng Chuan. “Don’t worry, Brother Eastcalm. I’ll do whatever you ask me to do. I definitely won’t do something you forbid me from doing.” Supremacy Qing Gu immediately guaranteed. He knew very well what a follower needed to do if they wanted to live a long life.
Meng Chuan nodded slightly before looking at the mysterious cave abode.
