The place remained silent.
“If there is no higher price, this Flame Lineage Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpse will belong to Great Emperor Heaven Calamity…” Xue Ying swept his gaze across the surroundings. After several breaths did he finally declare, “Good, this auction ends here! This Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpse belongs to Great Emperor Heaven Calamity from now on.”
The moment he finished speaking.
That red-haired Great Emperor Heaven Calamity took a step before appearing by the side of Xue Ying with a flash of red light. He threw over a storage treasure to Xue Ying directly. Following that, he waved his hand and collected that volcano-like Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpse and left the place.
“Mn?” Xue Ying immediately examined through the storage treasure. When he did so, he revealed a joyous look.
Within this Storage Eden Treasure were many corpses of huge Chaotic Origin Lifeforms. There was still a grand aura coming off from them–it was way stronger than the aura that came from the one he sold! This was mainly due to the tribal life of these Chaotic Origin Lifeforms here. Each tribe contained a voluminous number of lifeforms. In addition, the one he sold could not be found in the Sacred World. That was the reason he could exchange for so many other corpses.
“Damn!” Within his cavern-dwelling, a short and small old man who sat cross-legged with a frosty look, ‘Xie Fan’, had gotten a piece of news at the earliest moment from his good friend.
Even though the reputation of Xie Fan was awful and he was a nefarious person…
There were other experts within Scarlet Cloud City that did not really care about this nefarious personality of Xie Fan. Even though the experts might sneer in their hearts when they befriended Xie Fan, they still paid a great deal of attention to him for he was powerful! Xie Fan could even be ranked in the top 10 among all experts within Scarlet Cloud City. How powerful was he? Xie Fan was even the left and right arm of the City Master ‘Weather Leaf’. Hence, it was natural for a group of experts to maintain a good relationship with Xie Fan, sending the piece of news regarding the conclusion of the auction to him.
“Six Grand Perfection God Emperor corpses and one million cubic meters of food. Heaven Calamity is truly wealthy.” Xie Fan sneered, “In the end, that Flying Snow took advantage of him.”
In the eyes of Xie Fan.
Cultivators could be grouped according to those that were weak and those that were strong!
He felt that ‘Flying Snow’s strength was very ordinary. He did not have the qualifications to earn that huge sum of wealth! He was showing a great deal of respect for being willing to exchange for that corpse with three Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses of his. This was also due to the prohibition in Scarlet Cloud City. Otherwise, he would have simply killed the other party and snatched his treasures.
‘Hmph hmph, I shall let him revel in it first. It is impossible for him to remain in the city eternity.’ Xie Fan thought.
“Sister, the auction is completed. Its selling price is beyond the limit of what we can bear. Great Emperor Heaven Calamity bought it using six corpses coupled with a million cubic meters of food.”
“Go back first.”
On an enormous ice bed.
There was a black-robed beauty seated on it. She was the other expert that had coerced Xue Ying before for his treasure, ‘Mo Shu’. She did not attend the auction at all. She had even asked several good friends of hers to bid for the item.
“Damn, I can only think of a way to trade with Heaven Calamity. Once he no longer needs that corpse, I believe he would be willing to sell it to me.” The eyes of Mo Shu were burning in flames.
How long would one take to examine and comprehend a complete Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpse?
It was hard to say!
Because a cultivator that had not become a Chaotic Origin Lifeform would never be able to comprehend the manifested laws on the corpse of a Chaotic Origin Lifeform. This was also the reason why he did not bring out that Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpse he got from the Crown Prince of Iron Dragon Hall to trade. Even though Xue Ying’s gain in comprehending that corpse was becoming lower and lower over time, he would definitely not part with it so easily.
Xue Ying would wait until his current realm advance to the next stage before comprehending the corpse again!
As the auction reached its end, many cultivators began leaving from Xue Ying’s cavern-dwelling.
Great Emperor North River glanced at Xue Ying for a while before leaving too, though he felt the pressure in his heart: ‘This Ying Shan Xue Ying has great talent. He has cultivated for a very short period in the Realm Heart Great Land, yet his strength using the Dao of Void is comparable to mine! His soul technique is even unrivalled across many worlds. At least until now, I haven’t heard of someone that could compare with him in terms of soul techniques.’
Great Emperor North River was indeed feeling huge pressure from Xue Ying.
Xue Ying’s improvement was too quick.
‘Back at the Broken Teeth Mountain Range, he is far weaker than me.’
‘At the Lightning World, he is able to force me to escape.’
‘Here in this Sacred World where Chaotic Origin Lifeforms exist in large numbers, he should be able to cultivate and secure more resources easily. I believe he would improve and reach the next stage? If he has succeeded in refining a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body in conjunction with that terrifying soul technique of his, who would be his opponent?’ Great Emperor North River sighed inwardly, ‘Fortunately, it is hard for they-Dao Cultivators-to refine their fleshy body to that of a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform! It is at least a hundred to a thousand times harder than we who cultivate in our bloodlines.’
With a Chaotic Origin Bloodline in their body, it meant they had a basic foundation built into it.
All they needed to do was to dig out the potential!
And Dao Cultivators… had to grasp the laws and profound mysteries before creating a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body Technique from scratch! The difficult was much higher.
‘Xie Fan? Hmph hmph, I believe he would definitely have a miserable time after becoming enemies with this Ying Shan Xue Ying.’ Great Emperor North River sneered coldly. He had already decided to do his utmost in evading Xue Ying within this world. Regardless, he could always activate the imprint on his wristband to head to the third world, ‘In this world, Ying Shan Xue Ying would not dare to act as long as we remain in the city. But it’ll be free for all once we go out of the city.’
‘As long as I can reach the Chaotic Origin Level, hmph, what would a little Ying Shan Xue Ying be?’
Great Emperor North River immediately threw the thought of vengeance to the back of his mind.
To him, becoming a Chaotic Origin Lifeform is more important!
After the auction ended, Xue Ying began his days of keeping a low profile.
With a total of six Grand Perfection God Emperor Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Lifeforms, he would have a huge harvest from researching them! All kinds of comprehensions began accumulating in his mind. As he had sufficient food, Xue Ying began his patient cultivation within his cavern-dwelling.
60,000 years after he came to this world, he had regained the strength of his body back to the ‘Late Stage God Emperor’ level. It was absolutely stable.
But following that…
Xue Ying fell into a bottleneck.
The difficulty of breakthrough from ‘Late Stage God Emperor’ to a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform body was simply too great. Xue Ying could feel his comprehensions deepening over time, yet he just could not grasp a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body.
‘Let’s not talk about a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body. I can’t even boost my strength to that of a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body temporarily.’ Xue Ying understood where the problem lay.
Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body.
This represented a perfect body one could have below the ‘Chaotic Origin Lifeform’ Level! Theoretically, it was a stage where one could no longer have any improvement.
Want to break through?
That’ll be forcing through to the next level! It would enable the cultivator to reach the highest ‘Overlord’ Realm amongst all Chaotic Origin Lifeforms, with countless time-space territories under their governance! Being protected by them!
‘Let’s take it slowly.’
Xue Ying was incredibly patient.
He first thoroughly comprehended all the miscellaneous parts he had completely, spending a total of 80 million years.
Following that, he began analysing the Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses he had–a total of six of them. Xue Ying spent a total of three billion years to do so.
Following that, he continued with a more detailed analysis and corroboration…
‘A body of absolute perfection beneath the level of Chaotic Origin Lifeform?’
As Xue Ying accumulated in experience, he gradually had some idea of what to do.
And Xue Ying began attempting it according to those ideas he had!
As he sat within the underground palace in his cavern-dwelling, Xue Ying’s body began having huge transformations.
His legs became thicker within moments. But following that, with sounds of ‘ka ka ka’, many bones in his legs started breaking apart…
‘This isn’t it either.’
The skin covering Xue Ying’s body suddenly became thick. He seemed much more muscular and bigger, yet following that, the superficial skin and meat started collapsing apart.
‘Not right either.’
As he continued failing–many issues cropped up along the path towards grasping a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body–Xue Ying was still fully confident of himself. He was clear that attaining a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body within a short period is simply impossible. He was prepared to perfect this over a long period of time. And one of the reasons why he could do this is because of those Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses he had, giving rise to a thick foundation and understanding of the Dao.
On this day 8.8 billion years after he had come to the Sacred World.
Xue Ying once again constructed an entirely new body structure. This was already his 19th attempt! There was a long gap time between each attempt primarily because he had to deduce a new cultivation technique each time.
Xue Ying’s entire body abruptly become bigger. He was approximately 100 meters tall, and his skin was faintly illuminated in grayish light. His aura felt grand and powerful.
At this moment, many tiny part of his body started collapsing apart.
‘The degree of collapse is still within a limit I can bear! Given my body, I should be able to hold for the time taken to brew a cup of tea before it’ll completely collapse?’ Xue Ying revealed a grin. He did not dare to apply his understanding of the Dao of Void onto his entire body the previous few times. The best attempt he had previously could only last half a breath of time before his body collapsed! That was simply too short.
And once his body could maintain this state for the time taken to brew a cup of tea!
It represented a possibility of using it for battle!
