Chapter 465: Influence of the Celestial Sect of Wonders
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
As Yan Nan spoke, Yan Mingyue became silent immediately. Whereas the Xuan Lin Holy Man appeared to be distracted.
Yan Nan came from a Conservative Faction, whereas he was from the Radical Faction. Even though both parties were different, the Xuan Lin Holy Man retained the most basic respect towards Yan Nan. He did not speak and allowed Yan Nan to speak.
“This time, Mount Shu may have reaped more rewards than us.” Yan Nan said, “Through his sparring with the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders, Xin Longsheng saw a new path. Saintly Celestial Sword Qi had already reached its end, but a new path was born.”
“The Saintly Celestial Sword Qi is indeed the top swordplay in the Grand Celestial World and they have already assimilated the secrets of swordplay fully. But it had also lost its relevance. But today, Xin Longsheng has seen the possibility of the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi rising again.
As he said till here, besides Yan Mingyue, even the Great Void Sect Supreme Elder, the Xuan Lin Holy Man, became serious.
The Great Void Sect and Mount Shu Sword Sect had ties going back to many years ago. In the Divine Lands, besides the Mount Shu Sword Sect, the Great Void Sect understood the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi the best. Regardless of whether it was the Xuan Lin Holy Man or Yan Mingyue, they knew the power of the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi.
At the Cloud Forest World, Xin Longsheng was only flaunting a small part of what he was capable of.
Now that they knew that the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi could improve one level higher, how could they not know what that signified?
The Xuan Lin Holy Man said, “Leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonder…is his art of swordplay cultivation really so strong?”
Yan Nan answered calmly, “Purely based on the art of swordplay, I don’t think that he can win Xin Longsheng. But it is certain that his art of swordplay is beyond average in the Grand Celestial World.”
Xuan Lin Holy Man closed his eyes, “Just through one session of sparring, Xin Longsheng could not have exceeded the limit of the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi. He will try to obtain the art of swordplay of the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders.”
“Mount Shu Sword Sect and the Celestial Sect of Wonders will fight each other!”
Yan Mingyue said, “Eldest Senior had the idea to plan for the Celestial Sect of Wonders to repress the Mount Shu Sword Sect. It seems that he doesn’t need to waste any effort now.
“I still thought that there is a gap between the Mount Shu Sword Sect and the Celestial Sect of Wonders. But it seems that the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders is very unpredictable. Who would have thought that he was such an elite sword cultivator?”
Yan Mingyue said, “I had the idea of testing out how good he was and see the quality of the magic treasure he cultivated using the Zhuyan Demon Eye. But it was too rushed at the Cloud Forest World. To obtain the Cloud Forest Tree, I missed the opportunity.”
Xuan Lin Holy Man closed his eyes and said, “So what if you test him? Even if he was a Qi Cultivation Stage cultivator, it can’t change the fact that he can threaten the Mount Shu Sword Sect. This is very real.”
“The lower his cultivation, it only explains that his potential was higher. This means that the others should feel pressured.”
Yan Mingyue smiled and said, “I will become ashamed of myself. I feel that I have wasted all my efforts all these years.”
Xuan Lin Holy Man did not speak, as he revealed a weird expression.
The white clouds dragged the both of them back to the Divine Lands. Yan Nan’s voice resonated, “The Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation and the Hades’ Dark Mantra. As the Golden Roc Grand Sage and the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage’s powers increase, there will be changes in the demon clan. There will be a commotion in the Grand Celestial World again. We have to make preparations.”
“The rise of the Celestial Sect of Wonders may be a good thing.”
Xuan Lin Holy Man and Yan Mingyue nodded their heads in silence. Yan Mingyue looked at space and thought in her heart, “Lin Feng, what kind of influence will you bring to the Grand Celestial World?”
The same question was floating in everyone’s head at the same time.
From the Barren Lands, a streak of golden light crossed the horizon and travelled thousands of miles, landing in a huge mountain. In the mountains, there were many bird nests. The biggest of them all was flashing with golden light.
The nest looked simple, but was very grand and magnificent.
The golden light landed in this nest and revealed the look of the Golden Roc Grand Sage. After he descended, he opened his mouth wide and spat the Grand Sage of Qiong Qi, Heavenly Wheels Golden Roc and the other demons out of his mouth.
After that, a black spot flew out of the Golden Roc Grand Sage’s mouth and landed in front of the Grand Sage of Qiong Qi, “The core of the formation is still present, even as its external parts are broken. We can use the core of it to determine the parts that are broken. As for the materials, I will find them for you.”
The Grand Sage of Qiong Qi kept the formation map and nodded his head in silence.
“My Lord…” the Heavenly Wheels Golden Roc, Deep Sea Dragon Hawk and the other demons looked serious.
For the Hades’ Dark Mantra, the Golden Roc Grand Sage paid a huge price. As the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation was damaged, although it could be repaired, a lot of effort was needed. Out of more than ten Cloud Forest Trees, only a heartbreaking two were retrieved.
Although the Hades’ Dark Mantra was cultivated successfully, it had to be shared. The Great Zhou Empire shared a part of it. That was fine, but the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage had a share too. This was something many thought was unacceptable.
The Golden Roc Grand Sage looked at them and his black pupils exuded calmness and indifference. He said, “No harm.”
His eyes flashed with radiance suddenly. After that, destruction ensured and chaos descended.
The Hades’ Dark Mantra and the other Demonic Saints were shocked. Even the Grand Sage of Qiong Qi was stunned. After that, his eyes started to burn with flames.
“Is that…the Hunyuan Demonic Code?!”
The Golden Roc Grand Sage said, “Hades’ Dark Mantra infused the demonic spirit of Heavenly Charms. To determine the complete Hunyuan Demonic Code, it will be quite difficult. But with enough time, I can do it.”
The Heavenly Wheels Golden Roc and the other Demonic Saints revealed a smile on their faces. If they can obtain the Hunyuan Demonic Code, their previous efforts were worth it.
But there was little joy in the eyes of the Golden Roc Grand Sage. He turned to look at space. In his mind, the image of Lin Feng and the magnificent White Jade Mountain appeared. He thought of many things, “When I enter the Divine Lands in the future, he will be a huge variable.”
At the same time, the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, Liang Pan and Shi Yu were all pondering. To them, regardless of any plans in the future, the Celestial Sect of Wonders had to be considered.
“What kind of change will Lin Feng and his sect cause to the Grand Celestial World?”
Lin Feng was sitting on Mount Yujing and thinking about the influence this trip to the Cloud Forest World would bring.
The Hades’ Dark Mantra reappeared in the world and landed in the hands of the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, the Golden Roc Grand Sage and the Great Zhou Empire.
In terms of relationship and geography, the Great Zhou Empire and Lin Feng came from the Divine Lands. It was the easiest for them to encounter each other and conflict with each other.
When they fought for the treasure, Mount Yujing and the Imperial Palace clashed. Since the treasure was without an owner, whoever took it owned it. Everyone fought for it with their own abilities. Even if there were clashes, Lin Feng and Liang Pan would not take it to heart. After it was over, everything would be the same again.
But because of Yue Hongyan’s hatred for the country and the bad blood between Zhu Yi and Zhu Hongwu, regardless whether it was Lin Feng or Liang Pan, they could predict that the Celestial Sect of Wonders and the Great Zhou Empire would conflict in the future.
Under such a circumstance, the growth in the Great Zhou’s Empire power was not good news for Lin Feng. However, the Hades’ Dark Mantra reigned supreme in the demonic world. Even if a human cultivator obtained it, he would be unable to control it.
As this thing landed in Liang Pan’s hands, he could only cultivate to use it as a power source for the Imperial Palace. This allowed the Imperial Palace to gain an increment in its power.
On the other hand, to the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage and Golden Roc Grand Sage in the Barren Lands, they might not have any conflicts in the short-term, but they had many evil thoughts regarding the Hades’ Dark Mantra.
After they cultivated it, their powers were bound to increase. Whereas the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage already had tremendous powers as he controlled the Hunyuan Demonic Code. Lin Feng suspected that with enough time, she might use the Hades’ Dark Mantra to deduce the secret behind the first volume of the Demonic Book of the Heavenly Tao.
It wasn’t difficult to use a spell to deduce an abhijna, but to use an abhijna to do the reverse process on a spell had never been succeeded before. But nothing was impossible.
Lin Feng recalled the scene when the Golden Roc Grand Sage segmented the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation. He believed that the Golden Roc Grand Sage would be able to complete the entire formation with the core that he had.
The question laid in how much of the rewards would the Great Void Sect, Heavenly Charms Grand Sage and the Great Qin Empire get, as they possessed a part of the external area of the formation.
Among all of them, the Great Qin Empire deserved some attention. Although they looked the lowest profile of them all, Lin Feng got credible news that Shi Yu was preparing a frightening, secret weapon.
The disabled external areas of the formation were unlikely to be useful in deducing the complete Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation. But it was possible to find out the mystery behind the power guiding the formation. From there, it could speed up the completion of the secret weapon.
If that was the case, Liang Pan could not relax. His Imperial Palace would meet its match.
Lin Feng was pondering and felt a weird movement from the Cloud Forest Trees that he obtained suddenly. He laughed, “No matter what they do, I am going to benefit a lot.”
The Purple Clouds spat out 4 Cloud Forest Trees. These trees were filled with mushrooms, which were all avatars converted from the Parasol Fairy demonic powers.
When Lin Feng and the rest plucked the trees, they forced the Parasol Fairy’s demonic powers to retreat. Now the mushrooms on the trees had disappeared, revealing the original pitch-black branch and green leaves.
Apart from one of the trees, there were a few mushrooms left on the other trees. They were covered by the Purple Clouds, an attempt by Lin Feng to retain them.
Lin Feng looked at these mushrooms and said, “Parasol Fairy, welcome to Mount Yujing as a guest. I hope that one day, your actual self will come here.”
The brownish mushrooms shook a little and converted to an image of an old lady in a brown robe, the usual appearance of the Parasol Fairy. She stood beside the Cloud Forest Trees and sighed, “It’s a pleasure to meet you, Master Lin.”
“If you want the Celestial Spirit Snow Dew, I can create it with my avatar. But I provided it for the Golden Roc Grand Sage at the Middle World. My actual body and avatar are connected. Therefore, I have to wait for a long time before I can make another Celestial Spirit Snow Dew. Please forgive me.”
Lin Feng laughed, “Please stand on ceremony. You can feel free to stay here.”
