As the white-robed Xue Ying listened to his wife explaining, he felt kind of astonished.
His wife Jing Qiu was only a stage four World Deity. It was because she had a unique identity that she was able to receive some news on the war. One had to know that the war erupted 82,000 years after Xue Ying fell into deep sleep, and now, it had been more than 100,000 years! This was a war that persisted for more than 100,000 years without stopping. The identity of ‘Bloody Ruler’ Nile had long been revealed, and he had died ever since. Currently, the Cultivator Cosmos held a firm upper hand in the war, yet they could not wholly exterminate the Ancestor Mother Religion.
“The moment I wake up, it has been more than 100,000 years since the war began.” Xue Ying tried extending his senses, “Bloody Ruler Nile’s true body and avatar are exterminated. It’s good that the other Rulers are still alive.”
Xue Ying directly transmitted a message via karma.
“Xue Ying?” Bloodshed God-Emperor received the voice transmission. He felt both delighted and thrilled. Before the war began, he had visited Xue Ying several times. After the war erupted, even though he was concerned with his disciple, all his concentration was spent dealing against the Ancestor Mother Religion.
“Are you fine now?” Bloodshed God-Emperor asked.
“I’m fine. The slumber did not injure me. Instead, it has helped me a lot.” Xue Ying responded, “What is the current situation of the war now? I might need a day or two before I could join in.”
“There is slight trouble, but we still hold an absolute advantage against them! It isn’t easy trying to exterminate them completely. Ultimately, the foundation of the Ancestor Mother Religion is deeper than ours. If you can participate in the battle, it is naturally a great thing. But it has been 100,000 years, so we aren’t in a rush. You should finish settling your matters first.” Bloodshed God-Emperor reminded him.
“Alright.” Xue Ying felt his heart relaxing.
He indeed needed some time to prepare.
Within the inner layer of Primogenitor Devil Mountain.
The floating cavern-dwelling door opened. A black-robed Xue Ying flew out along with that puppet girl.
“A single dream lasted 650 million years.” Xue Ying lightly muttered. His figure landed on the mountain road.
“Dream Cultivation? It is indeed beneficial to me, but nevertheless, it has been way too long. How long have I cultivated ever since I was born?” Xue Ying lamented. The days spent in the dream cultivating were very horrifying.
He spent his life living on a piece of empty land. He had forgotten who he was-his memory had been shrouded.
On that great empty land, there was only a single person. There was also an abode and a library hall. The books placed within the library hall were books he had seen before-subjects on the laws and profound mysteries system and cultivation techniques from other systems. It also included the “Luminous Sun”, “Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body” and other absolute arts. There was even a book of the “Walker’s Hidden Secret” placed within, and all books he once saw on the Primogenitor Devil Mountain.
As long as he had memorized a book before, it would appear on that piece of barren land.
Most of his memories were wiped. Instead, the great void land was his enemy, and he was forced to cultivate and to battle.
Cultivate, battle, cultivate, battle… it lasted forever!
Because he had no memories, he was like a piece of clean sheet. He would not be affected by any prior disturbances! Before dying, he had to continuously cultivate. Even though he had lost his memories, he could still feel instinctively that he preferred the laws and profound mysteries system the most, thus cultivating this system as the main one before opening the Dao of Mirage, Dao of Slaughter and Dao of Ripple… And one of the main reasons why he had opened these Daos was because they were the easiest to comprehend. It was clear Xue Ying had to spend more effort on other systems.
He had also cultivated the “Walker’s Hidden Secret”!
Cultivating all the way, even though everything happened in the dreamland, it would also influence reality. Xue Ying would walk down the same Dao path in reality too! But ultimately, the laws and profound mysteries he comprehended and the combat techniques were not entirely the same.
“I’ve spent 650 million years cultivating in a dream, and actually reached the 11th layer with the “Walker’s Hidden Secret”, becoming a Ruler.” Xue Ying was startled.
There were a total of 60 levels with the “Walker’s Hidden Secret”.
Every 10 levels constituted a major realm.
Thus, cultivating from the first to 10th level might be tough, but it was still possible as long as one cultivated and accumulated enough experience over time. Nonetheless, to break through the bottleneck from the 10th to 11th level was something extremely difficult. It was just like breaking through using the laws and profound mysteries from the Paragon realm to the Ruler realm. Even though it was a single step, crossing this step felt like crossing the heaven’s moat.
One could say that the difficulty of breaking through to the 11th level from the 10th level was much more difficult than cultivating from the 1st to the 10th level. After all, the latter was just deepening one’s understanding of the same realm, and the first was a jump in a major realm.
“And it is even a Ruler of the Voidwalker lineage.” Xue Ying was slightly rueful. Even though he had reached that realm in his Dream Cultivation, his body remained the same in reality throughout these years. His soul stayed unchanged too since that was just a ‘Dream World’.
“I’ve deepened my understanding of the laws and profound mysteries system at least; I’ve also created the third volume for the “Wind Ripple Path”.”
“The Dao of Mirage, Dao of Slaughter and Dao of Ripple seem to be slightly different from what I comprehended in the real world.” Xue Ying could feel it with his heart as a significant amount of laws and profound mysteries started intertwining. His expression changed as he began pondering in bursts.
Because he cultivated in the Dream World, even though it remained that he was still stuck at a bottleneck in these three Daos, he had some understanding as to how to reach the eternal perfection realm.
Adding up the fact that he had comprehended the same three Daos in the real world, as long as he tried comparing them and fusing them together, he should be able to break through to the Ruler realm immediately after comprehending for a short while.
‘I’m not in a rush to breakthrough. I’ll first return to my hometown.’ Xue Ying thought.
“The inner layer of the Primogenitor Devil Mountain…” Xue Ying looked towards the many floating cavern-dwellings in the distance, “I’ve just arrived at the Primogenitor Devil Mountain inner layer, yet I have to leave now.”
He could not stay here!
Because as long as he cultivated, the Primogenitor Devil Mountain would sense that he had reached the Ruler realm and would force him out! He was after all, no longer a Paragon and thus, he could no longer remain in this cavern-dwelling.
Want to enter the Primogenitor Devil Mountain? He had to follow the rules of the Rulers-reaching the top 39 Rulers in power before he could enter the outer layer again.
And only the strongest 9 Rulers could enter the inner layer.
The top Ruler had the chance to enter the core.
Xue Ying understood his own abilities. If he cultivated the “Walker’s Hidden Secret” to the 19th or 20th level, bringing the laws and profound mysteries system all to perfect eternity, he might be able to rush to the first few Rulers in rank or even become the top Ruler. But now? He would be lucky to even enter the ‘outer layer of Primogenitor Devil Mountain’.
After all, there were more than 300 Rulers after adding the natives of the Devil Mountain Cosmos and other vanquished cosmoses. To rank in the top 39… that was 10% in scale! Even the weakest of these 39 Rulers were apex Rulers.
“I’ve already broken through.” Xue Ying turned over to the puppet girl by his side, “And I will be becoming a Ruler soon. Thus, I can no longer remain here.”
The puppet girl was stunned.
Becoming a Ruler?
Paragon Lie Yang had cultivated for so long here without breaking through. This new master of hers had just entered his first Dream Cultivation, yet he had broken through to the Ruler realm already?
“Leave this cavern-dwelling for other Paragons to use.” Xue Ying chuckled before leaving the place.
That day, this news had spread across the entire Primogenitor Devil Mountain, and soon, it also spread across to the experts standing at the peak of the Devil Mountain Cosmos and several other cosmos.
The strongest Paragon ‘Xue Ying’ who had just risen up to power abruptly, entered the inner layer of Primogenitor Devil Mountain and cultivated for more than 600 million years before breaking through to the Ruler realm. He had already left the Primogenitor Devil Mountain.
In the starry sky.
Xue Ying met with the Third Highness Jiao Yun Liu.
“I’ve not entered the Primogenitor Devil Mountain, yet you are out already?” Third Highness Jiao Yun Liu said.
“I will be breaking through to the Ruler realm soon.” Xue Ying chuckled, “And my hometown is in a war. I have to go back. Before leaving, there is a small thing which I have to trouble Your Highness.”
“We are friends. If you have anything, just tell me directly.” Jiao Yun Liu declared.
Xue Ying replied, “The moment I become a Ruler, I’ll not be able to come back via the same cosmos passage. By then, I’ll send some of my loved ones and disciples over here to cultivate. I might need your assistance to help them at that time. They are just World Deities and are too weak. Without the help of an expert… they will likely encounter many issues in the Devil Mountain Cosmos.”
“Rest assured. It’s just a small matter. When you send your people over, just send me a message. I’ll definitely arrange things properly.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu promised. What identity did he have? He was a Ruler and also the child of a Void God. It was absolutely easy for him to arrange such things.
“Are you still coming in the future?” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu asked.
Xue Ying chuckled, “We will meet again in the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World.”
“Alright. We’ll meet at the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World then.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu said.
After bidding farewell to His Highness Jiao Yun Liu, Xue Ying swiftly went on the journey back home. Xue Ying had even deliberately set down a mirage array by the entrance of the cosmos passage at the Devil Mountain Cosmos to hide all traces of it!
The black-robed and red-robed Xue Ying looked towards this Devil Mountain Cosmos.
The help which Devil Mountain Cosmos could provide him with would thus end here. Even though the Primogenitor Devil Mountain was very attractive, the inner layer’s ‘Dream Cultivation’ was the most helpful only during the first time. In the future, its effect would only diminish every subsequent time he entered. As for the more mysterious core layer of the Primogenitor Devil Mountain… he had to become the strongest Ruler before he could enter. Xue Ying did not know how long he had to cultivate for to reach that level. But now, he just had to spend some days cultivating before breaking through, and he believed he would rank in the forefront amongst the Rulers back in his hometown. Ultimately, Xue Ying was someone who broke through using the Voidwalker lineage, and that far surpassed the strength of Rulers breaking through using the conventional systems.
‘Before breaking through, I have to visit the Starting Ground once more.’ Xue Ying thought.
The black-robed and red-robed Xue Ying flew side by side towards the cosmos passage. They were returning back to the Cultivator Cosmos.
