Chapter 978: A Warm Welcome to the Starry Sea
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar and Avatar of Ares stepped through the gate to the Starry Sea and entered an inter-world passage.
By walking along the inter-world passage, they were soon able to reach the Ancient Desolate Galaxy.
When they entered the passage, Lin Feng did not rush to act. His Avatar of Ares waved his hand and one big and nine small crucibles appeared before them.
The big crucible, which stood on three legs, was adorned with carvings of the mountain and river. it was as if a river of ten thousand li long bordered by mountains were carved on top of it. That was the magic treasure the Mountain and River Void Crucible.
Around the Mountain and River Void Crucible, there were nine smaller crucibles. Together, they formed a formation and hummed loudly with the Mountain and River Void Crucible. Working together, they could tap on each other’s powers.
The formation formed by the nine crucibles then joined together with the Mountain and River Void Crucible to form a spell formation of ten crucibles.
Lin Feng’s Avatar of Ares continued to perform many spell gestures with his two hands as he directed mana into the Ten Crucibles Spell Formation. The Ten Crucibles Spell Formation vibrated in a mystic manner. One could feel that they were attempting to connect with the inter-world passage.
“Doing so will allow us to adjust our entrance into the Starry Sea. I shall attempt to land close to the Crucible of the Divine Lands.”
Since Lin Feng was in the Ancient Desolate Galaxy, he could not miss the chance to visit the Destiny level magic treasure forged in the Antiquity Age by Emperor Xia, the Crucible of the Divine Lands.
The fame of the Nine Treasures of Heaven’s Gate was widespread. In terms of battling abilities, the Heavenly Imperial Jade was deemed to be the best.
From Lin Feng’s perspective, however, the Yan Heaven Crucible of the South was the most important magic treasure of heaven’s Gate. It contributed greatly to the rise of Heaven’s Gate. Furthermore, the Yan Heaven Crucible was one of the few magic treasures in the Divine Lands that could cultivate medicines and pills.
When Heaven’s Gate was destroyed in the Antiquity Age, this Mahayana level treasure too was ruined as well. Earlier, the Yan Heaven Crucible taken by the Celestial Sect of Wonders and then passed onto the Royal House of the Northern Tribe was a replica made by the East Heaven Gate. As it was only in its Gestation level, it was much weaker.
With the flow of time, the only powerful pill cultivating magic treasure left that could rival the Yan Heaven Crucible that Lin Feng knew about was the Great Void Sect’s Sun and Moon Divine Cauldron.
This too was another Mahayana level magic treasure and had existed since the Antiquity Age. It was just as famous as the Yan Heaven Crucible.
Including the Yan Heaven Crucible, the other powerful magic treasures that could be used in pill cultivation were swept away by the flow of time. Some, like the Yan Heaven Crucible, were destroyed while others were lost.
However, all these magic treasures were nothing compared to the Crucible of the Divine Lands.
The Crucible of the Divine Lands could not only be used for pill cultivation, but it was the only Destiny level magic treasure with this capability. Its supreme position could not be challenged.
Naturally, Lin Feng placed a lot of importance on the Crucible of the Divine Lands.
Till date, with the continued development of the Celestial Sect of Wonders and the increase of its power, the Ethereal Heart Cauldron could no longer keep up.
In the past few years, Xiao Yan thought of forging his own magic treasure crucible that he could use for pill cultivation.
If there were even enough ingredients, the number of pills a powerful magic treasure crucible could produce daily was incredibly high. It was extremely useful in increasing the overall power of the sect.
In terms of magic treasures for pill cultivation, none could compare to the Crucible of the Divine Lands in the history of the entire Grand Celestial World.
However, it was not easy to find the Crucible of the Divine Lands. Firstly, it was lost in the Ancient Desolate Galaxy. While some of the gates to the Ancient Desolate Galaxy/Starry Sea were in the hands of humans, most were still owned by demons.
Due to differences in cultivation, powerful demons, particularly those in the Undying Demon Soul Third Level, would see an increase in their battling abilities in the Starry Sea. Their battling abilities there would be superior to theirs in the Barren Expanses.
For different demons, different environments would affect their battling abilities differently. However, the Ancient Desolate Galaxy was the best place for all demons, except their ancestral homes.
Furthermore, there were many mysteries surrounding the fall of Emperor Xia and the loss of the Crucibles of the Divine Lands.
Lin Feng tried to search for information about this in the system, but he was only able to gain a superficial understanding.
For example, while Emperor Xia fell in a battle between humans and demons, no one had witnessed the battle.
When Emperor Xia’s Natal Light had been extinguished, no one could find his corpse. Even more suspiciously, no one knew where did the Crucible of the Divine Lands go.
Of course, Lin Feng now knew that the Crucible of the Divine Lands was in the Ancient Desolate Galaxy. However, the fall of Emperor Xia was still a mystery.
While many Emperors of Man in the Primordial Age and the Antiquity Age fell in battle, very few died in circumstances as suspicious as that of Emperor Xia’s.
Finally, as a Destiny level magic treasure, it was difficult to take possession of the Crucible of the Divine Lands.
As Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar and Avatar of Ares headed straight, they soon exited the inter-world passage.
There appeared to be a faint film of light before them. It was another door.
Lin Feng gently pushed the door open and the film of light broke. After opening the door and stepping through it, Lin Feng had formally entered the Starry Sea, one of the Grand Celestial Seven Seas.
The scene before him was pitch-black darkness. Stars twinkled everywhere, and one felt as if one had entered outer space. Yet, it was an entirely separate dimension.
The lights of the star appeared within grasp and yet, light years away.
Lin Feng knew in his heart that this Outer Realm was very special. Just like how the Spirit Sea was bound tightly to the Greater World, the Starry Sea too was bound tightly to space in the Greater World.
Unlike the Spirit Sea, where the demarcation was clear, the Starry Sea had merged with space.
However, the Starry Sea and the Greater World were still two separate worlds. Through the stars, they established a curious connection. Humans and demons in the Starry Sea could both tap on the powers of the stars.
When Lin Feng saw this mystical world, he was in awe too.
However, he did not have much time to gape at his surroundings. The moment he entered the Ancient Desolate Galaxy, he was met with a warm welcome.
The moment Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar and Avatar of Ares appeared in the Ancient Desolate Galaxy, he saw a swathe of powerful, demonic powers that sought to reduce everything to nothing.
As it drew closer, it was a huge formation that shone with flashing, bright light. in the Starry Sea, Mercury shone brightly.
The giant spell formation was the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation!
Without asking, one knew that the person who casted this formation was the Qiong Qi Grand Sage.
This powerful demon was used to having his way and he behaved in a reckless fashion. Once, he secretly entered the Divine Lands and casted the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation over the Sea of the Northern Wind. He almost succeeded in blowing apart the entrance to the Ancient Huanghai World, and he buried some young human cultivators there.
Because of that, he crossed paths with the Celestial Sect of Wonders. Afterwards, he joined forces with the Golden Roc Grand Sage in the Cloud Forest World and with his help, he was able to achieve the Undying Demon Soul Third Level.
However, as Lin Feng and the Celestial Sect of Wonders became more and more powerful, the Qiong Qi Grand Sage who was usually brutal and lawless could only helplessly hide himself and bide his time. He feared that Lin Feng may seek him out revenge. The Qiong Qi under his command kept a low-profile.
Right now, when Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar and the Avatar of Ares appeared in the Ancient Desolate Galaxy. The Qiong Qi Grand Sage was naturally shocked.
At the same time, in another direction, one could see a giant, crouching black wolf. Its body was as huge as a mountain range.
While he had only seen him once, Lin Feng was certain that the wolf was the Sirius Grand Sage that he had seen in the Cloud Forest World.
However, their previous meeting was not entirely friendly. Lin Feng swept the wolf with his supernatural awareness and realized that, like the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, the Sirius Grand Sage improved too. Right now, he was in the Undying Demon Soul Third Level.
This demon was extremely powerful and a strong fighter. Through his gaze, Lin Feng realized that even the Xiangliu Grand Sage, who had just undergone his tribulation, may not be able to fight against the Sirius Grand Sage.
Faced with the Qiong Qi Grand Sage’s Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation, the Sirius Grand Sage behaved uncharacteristically fierce. He rushed up to meet the blow.
When his blood-red eyes saw Lin Feng, he was shocked too. However, the look of shock disappeared and was replaced by bloodthirsty cruelty.
There was a third party. It was a giant ape whose entire body was gold and whose head had six, long horns.
The giant ape too had been staring at the huge spell formation. At that moment, when he saw Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar and Avatar of Ares, a look of surprise crossed his face as well.
The giant ape too was an Undying Demon Soul Third Level demon.
Lin Feng had never seen him before, but he knew who he was. His appearance was a dead giveaway. He was a member of the Ancient Ape Demons. His six horns confirmed his status as the leader of the Six-Horned Divine Monkey. It was the Six-Horned Grand Sage.
This was a close ally of the Heavenly Grandmaster Grand Sage. His own powers were remarkable too.
He too had beef with the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
When Shi Tianhao was still in the Nascent Soul stage, he killed a Six-Horned Divine Monkey Demonic Lord when he was training in the Barren Expanses. That was the grandson of the Six-Horned Grand Sage.
Ever since Lin Feng entered the Barren Expanses five years ago to hunt for the Golden Cicada, his Thunder Dragon Avatar was known to all. The Six-Horned Grand Sage recognized him immediately. His eyes narrowed, and his six horns started to shine with golden light.
Right now, a blue pillar of light shot out from the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation and came straight for Lin Feng.
On the other side, the Sirius Grand Sage too spat out a blast of blood-red light. Its original target was the Qiong Qi Grand Sage and his Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation. However, thanks to Lin Feng’s sudden appearance, it was targeted at him instead.
Lin Feng did not know whether he should laugh or cry. With another sweep of his supernatural awareness, he realized that his location had undergone a lot of damage. A battle was taking place there. Unfortunately, when he landed in the Starry Sea, he landed straight in the center of the battle.
Just as the few sides battled furiously, he appeared.
Right now, the light of Mercury from the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation and the Sirius Grand Sage’s blood-red light were already before Lin Feng. Where the power of the two demons met, everything was annihilated.
