Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1367
Chapter 1367 – Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
The cultivation technique that he comprehended this time gave him a feeling of perfection.
Xue Ying lightly breathed in. He looked forward to the next step.
With a thought, he easily controlled his fleshy body, allowing it to transform. His fleshy body that was at the Late Stage God Emperor level began evolving at this moment according to the latest Chaotic Origin Refinement Body Technique that he designed. Looking at his body, it did not seem to have any drastic changes. His skin trembled lightly, and it seemed like the body composition had been restructured. There was even a layer of luster covering his body, making it seem as if it was the most perfect treasure.
And beneath his skin… the internal structure of the body was undergoing an intense transformation.
This was directed down to its most minute component. Countless inscriptions spread across every minute particles. Xue Ying’s body was currently metamorphosing. His bones, his muscles, his organs, his bloodline, his blood, eyes, and other parts were all transforming. This transformation was perfect. Everything seemed to flow in the right direction, giving rise to an absolutely stunning piece of art.
“Weng.” The world membrane directly shattered, causing Chaotic Origin Energy to surge in. It continually poured into the body of Xue Ying.
This time, the transformation happened really quickly. It took merely ten breaths of time.
And everything went back to normal after that.
‘I’ve broken through.’ Xue Ying grinned. He did not create a huge disturbance. It was due to his huge accumulation that finally pushed him past the tipping point.
Both his inner and outer body were transparent to Xue Ying. Xue Ying could sense how perfect his current body composition was. Xue Ying could not even think of what he should do to have another further improvement to it.
This was already a body that had reached the pinnacle of perfection.
‘I finally understood what many cultivators in the Sacred World are all stuck at the Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body Level. Not just the Bloodline Cultivators or the Dao Cultivators, it is tough for any of them to reach the next level.’ Xue Ying shook his head. Bloodline Cultivators could still follow by their bloodline and undergo an Ultimate Awakening! But Dao Cultivators had to rely on themselves.
‘I already felt that it has reached perfection.’
‘And that there are no longer any paths for me to continue.’ Xue Ying had this feeling.
Even though he knew there was a higher level, becoming a ‘Chaotic Origin Lifeform’, and he knew that a more perfect lifeform body existed…
But under his current knowledge, the Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body he had was already at the pinnacle of perfection.
‘According to the legends.’
‘Dao Cultivators have to rely on their strength and break through the limits of Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body, smashing apart the shackles to grasp the ‘Dao’ at the Chaotic Origin Level! They would then immediately become an Overlord, also the highest level existence ever known.’ Xue Ying thought.
Those who chose to spread their religion and gain the belief of other cultivators… and other methods meant to grasp the source of an Origin World would make the cultivator the master of the Origin World! By relying on the source energy of an Origin World to become a Chaotic Origin Lifeform, one would become a ‘World Realm Chaotic Origin Lifeform’. Such existences were powerful and were second only to the Overlord. They could even fight back against Overlords within the Origin Worlds that they controlled.
However, such existences had yet to grasp the ‘Dao’ at the Chaotic Origin Level.
Like those Innate Chaotic Origin Lifeforms for instance, they focused on digging out the potential of their bloodline energy, allowing them to evolve to the next level. But even as they dug out all the potential they had! Compared to the Overlords that grasped ‘Dao’ of the Chaotic Origin Level, they were still lacking by a bit.
‘Not just the Innate Chaotic Origin Lifeforms or the extremely powerful World Realm Chaotic Origin Experts, all of them can exert endless might, yet none of them has actually grasped the essence of ‘Dao’ at the Chaotic Origin Level.’ Xue Ying sighed.
Despite reaching that level, they still failed to grasp the essence of ‘Dao’ at the Chaotic Origin Level.
How difficult was it for him?
But the moment he did so!
It would mean breaking through by force! He could break through all shackles and reach the highest level of life.
Xue Ying took a step before disappearing from the Broken Teeth Mountain Range.
He had already left the Origin World, Realm Heart Great Land and came to the endless Chaotic Origin Dimension not too far away.
Endless ripples could be felt being generated by the enormous Realm Heart Great Land, rushing out against the surrounding Chaotic Origin Energy while forming many waves at the same time. As a result, the concentration of Chaotic Origin Energy near the region of Realm Heart Great Land was very thin. At this moment, Xue Ying was moving out of the Realm Heart Great Land. He could feel the corrosion from the surrounding Chaotic Origin Energy acting on his body, yet it did not do anything to his Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body at all.
His body traveled through an arc, easily maneuvering within the Chaotic Origin Dimension. His current Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique was executed with greater perfection than before, allowing him to travel to a far distance with great ease.
Soon, he stopped.
‘The Chaotic Origin Energy is much more corrosive here.’ Xue Ying thoroughly experienced it. It was silent and dark. The Chaotic Origin Energy was also much more concentrated here. They were gushing across his body. Nothing he did could stop the Chaotic Origin Energy from affecting both his body and his soul.
At this moment, his Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body was constantly suffering from damage. Even the natural recovery of his body could not reach up to the rate of damage.
His soul was similarly injured.
‘It seems my body can hold on for approximately two hours.’ Xue Ying estimated, ‘And my soul seems to be able to hold on for a very long time? It seems fine even if it stays here for six to ten hours?’
The previous time, his soul was not this strong.
Ever since he fused both his first Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm killing technique with his second, forming the third killing technique, his soul had undergone a qualitative transformation. This transformation strengthened his soul’s resistance against the corrosive effects from the Chaotic Origin Energy,
‘I am ultimately not a Chaotic Origin Lifeform. It is not appropriate for me to live here.’ Xue Ying thought. He turned around to look at that enormous Realm Heart Great Land.
The Realm Heart Great Land remained dazzling amidst the dark Chaotic Origin Dimension.
It was surging with energy that pushed back the endless Chaotic Origin Energy that existed here…
As Xue Ying was located too far away, the Realm Heart Great Land seemed slightly smaller.
‘Time to return.’
With a thought, he executed the Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique before returning back.
At his hometown Primal Chaos Void.
This avatar of Xue Ying had also broken through to the Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body Level. At the same time, he came to the Lost World Corridor.
He moved by himself within the Lost World Corridor.
Xue Ying released his Void Domain.
Now that he had reached the Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body Level, his Void Domain had become much more profound. Once it was executed, it easily pushed back the various suppression from the Lost World Corridor, continuously expanding out. However, as it expanded further away, the suppression of the Lost World Corridor on his domain rose exponentially. Ten times, hundred times, thousand times. And very soon, Xue Ying was forced to stop.
‘It seems I cannot cover the entire Lost World Corridor with my domain yet.’ Xue Ying frowned with a shake of his head, ‘The Origin World forms the Lost World Corridor and even protects those Destruction Devils.’
It was impossible for Xue Ying to scout through a huge region.
If he wanted to do so?
He would have to visit those places and investigate region by region. That would require a tremendous amount of time! Sacred Master was ultimately a Final Realm Cosmos God. He could completely conceal his aura and isolate all karmic tracing techniques. If he disguised himself as an ordinary Destruction Devil, Xue Ying could not find out who he was even if the other party stood in front of Xue Ying.
‘If he dares to leave the Lost World Corridor for a massacre, I can make use of that chance to exterminate him. But if he doesn’t plan on leaving the Lost World Corridor, there is nothing I can do temporarily.’ Xue Ying shook his head.
He had never thought of letting Sacred Master off!
He had a huge enmity with the Sacred Master. There were so many living beings that died in the hands of the Sacred Master.
‘I shall let you hide in it forever.’
Xue Ying turned around and left the Lost World Corridor with a step.
And at this moment, Sacred Master who was living in seclusion within the Lost World Corridor, was completely ignorant that Xue Ying had attained a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body. Nonetheless, his plan was to continue hiding here until the Great Apocalypse. He wanted to wait for the next era before executing any plan he had.
Scarlet Cloud City, within Xue Ying’s cavern-dwelling.
Xue Ying was currently seated cross-legged enjoying his wine. At the same time, he was also enjoying the fragrance of the flowers within the garden and the tranquil from the whistling sound of the wind blowing at the leaves.
“Monarch Flying Snow, hearsay you have left closed-door cultivation? Is it because you have succeeded in grasping the Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body already?” He received some transmissions.
“I broke through fortuitously.” Xue Ying replied.
“Then what about the matter I mentioned previously? About going to hunt down a Chaotic Origin Prisoner?”
“I have just broken through and do still need some time to experience my newfound power. I am not in a rush to go for another operation either.” Xue Ying transmitted back. He had clearly rejected the other party.
After succeeding in the task of hunting Quiet Icy Mountain Master down.
There were quite a few others who invited him to hunt down Chaotic Origin Prisoners too. But Xue Ying temporarily chose to reject all of them.
‘When can I become a Chaotic Origin Lifeform?’ Xue Ying pondered.
Reaching his current stage.
He was somewhat at a loss.
Force his way? Rely on his comprehension skills to grasp the ‘Dao’ at the Chaotic Origin Level? The difficulty was simply too high!
Even grasping the Origin Source of his hometown Origin world was similarly difficult.
‘Force through to the next level.’
‘Mn, to me, there are two methods I can employ to force a breakthrough.’ Xue Ying thought, ‘The first way is to shatter apart all body restraints and directly raise my Dao of Void to the next level, allowing me to officially reach the Chaotic Origin Level. That way, my body would similarly reach the next level too.’
‘The other method is to rely on my soul.’ Xue Ying pondered.
He had a feeling that both his soul and body would complement one another.
This was a logic everyone understood.
Even the Final Realm ‘Old Monster Stone’ was also improving his understanding of the soul. ‘Ancestor Fan’ from the Summer Wind Ancient Nation and many other cultivators were also spending plenty of effort on the soul aspect.
Previously, Xue Ying had once perfected his fleshy body further using his strengthened soul.
And now that he had reached the Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body Level, his soul was temporarily insufficient in powering his body. But what if he had some improvements in his soul, reaching the final realm?
‘The soul could aid in my fleshy body. But I wonder if I could rely on this to reach the Chaotic Origin Level? That is hard to say. This is ultimately just my conjecture.’ Xue Ying thought. He had never heard of any legend spoken where one broke through in one fell swoop by relying on the complementary effects of both the soul and the fleshy body.
But many experts had felt that this was the accurate path.
Xue Ying similarly thought so too.
‘This path of forcing my Dao of Void to a higher level is done by many other experts.’ Xue Ying thought.
That Luo City Lord for instance had done that!
But Luo City Lord did not walk down the path of Dao of Void.
‘Even though there have been cases of experts breaking through to the next level by force, becoming Overlords! This is simply an arduous path to take.’
‘The other path which is to fuse both my soul and fleshy body, is something I have at least not heard of anyone achieving so. But I have lay down a solid foundation and am just a slight bit away from reaching the final realm in my Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm.’ Xue Ying nodded inwardly. He made his decision. In the following days, he would spend most of his concentration on comprehending the Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm so that he could reach the final realm in the shortest period.
As for breaking through to the next level in his Dao of Void? That was destined to be a very long journey ahead.
