When Zhou Yuan followed Chi Jing through the ancient thick doors of the Thousand Technique Hall, he sensed faint spatial ripples. When he regained his focus, he found that he was in a wood study room with a relaxing atmosphere.
Behind the desk, a beautiful woman in a green dress was faintly smiling at them.
No Genesis Qi was undulating from her body, but Zhou Yuan could feel an indescribable pressure as if everything was under her control.
This feeling made Zhou Yuan extremely uncomfortable. Law Domain stage experts were far too frightening. Merely standing before them would result in being easily enveloped by their Law Domains. Within the Law Domain, he was a mortal, whereas they were gods.
Inside their Law Domains, even self-destructing would be a near-impossible feat. The feeling that one’s life was not in one’s hands was truly unbearable.
The beautiful woman before him was naturally clan leader Mu Ni.
“Grand elder Mu Ni, I brought the new chief pavilion master to receive a little Saint technique.” Chi Jing looked towards clan leader Mu Ni and smiled.
Mu Ni nodded. “The little one is surprisingly patient. Ordinary Divine Dwelling stage practitioners would have come on the day itself if they were awarded a little Saint technique, and yet he managed to endure for several days.”
Zhou Yuan smiled awkwardly. The truth was that he had wanted to come as soon as he could, but he was unable to free himself due to the annoying problems of the four pavilions. This was why he had been delayed for several days.
Mu Ni wore a kindly expression, displaying no signs of the usual arrogance of a grand elder. She looked at Zhou Yuan and smiled. “Chi Jing’s discernment is not bad this time.”
Zhou Yuan could feel a sliver of friendliness in Mu Ni’s voice, likely because she viewed him as Chi Jing’s subordinate. However, he only responded with an honest smile.
“You haven’t come into contact with any little Saint techniques before, right?” asked Mu Ni.
Zhou Yuan nodded. A Genesis technique of such rank was something he had never seen before even in the Cangxuan Sect. Of course, the Cangxuan Sect definitely had some, but he had only reached the Alpha-Origin stage back then and did not have the qualifications to access such power.
“Do you know the difference between little Saint techniques or Saint techniques when compared to ordinary Genesis techniques?” Mu Ni smiled.
Zhou Yuan understood that clan leader Mu Ni wanted to teach him and thus shook his head. “This young one does not know.”
“The difference is actually very simple. There is only one condition to create a little Saint technique or something higher ranked. It requires at least the power of the Law Domain.
“The reason why the Saint tier has limitless power that can destroy heaven and earth is because Saint Genesis techniques have a power core that Heaven Genesis techniques do not. This power is known as the Law Domain Source.”
“Law Domain Source?” Zhou Yuan’s heart shook slightly. This was the first time someone had explained the origin of Saint Genesis techniques.
“Yes, the Law Domain Source is the core of the Law Domain, and it is essential to every Law Domain stage expert while they are constructing their Law Domain.
“Only when a Genesis technique is created with the Law Domain Source at its base will it be able to reach the Saint tier.”
Zhou Yuan was struck by a flash of understanding. No wonder only Law Domain stage experts can create Saint tier techniques. It turns out that this Law Domain Source was a necessary ingredient.
“A great amount of Law Domain Source will be consumed when creating a Saint Genesis technique. Hence, Law Domain stage experts will not casually create one. Moreover, even if they do, they will not impart it so easily. After all, the Law Domain Source is extremely important to any Law Domain stage expert.
“Also, if you obtain a little Saint Genesis technique, you’ll have to comprehend its Law Domain Source to learn it. Remember this well, you need to form a Genesis technique mark in your body before the Law Domain Source is used up. Once the Genesis technique mark is created, it’ll be akin to planting a seed. You only need to continuously polish the mark with your Genesis Qi to slowly bring out the power of the little Saint technique.”
“What if I fail to form a mark before the Law Domain Source depletes?”
Mu Ni calmly said, “Then you’ll have failed. You only have one chance to learn the little Saint techniques in the Thousand Technique Hall. Failure will mean that your talent and luck are insufficient; though there is no one to blame for it. After all, even Law Domain experts will not easily squander away their Law Domain Source to aid in your training.”
Zhou Yuan secretly wet his lips. It was no wonder Saint tier techniques were so strictly controlled in the Cangxuan Sect and the Tianyuan Region. It was due to the preciousness of the Law Domain Source.
“I’ll be sending you into the little Saint technique hall, where all of our Tianyuan Region little Saint techniques are stored. You may select whichever you want, but how you do so will hinge upon your own destiny and luck.” After finishing, Mu Ni gently waved her sleeve.
Before Zhou Yuan could ask anything more, the surrounding space began to warp as it swallowed his figure.
The darkness lasted for several breaths before light abruptly chased it away.
Zhou Yuan swiveled his gaze about the area and found that he was in a large hall. It was a simple looking place, and there were no decorations to be found, only pillar after pillar of ancient mottled stone.
When Zhou Yuan’s looked towards a pillar, countless specks of light suddenly converged towards it, culminating into a ball of light that silently hovered atop the pillar.
Zhou Yuan’s heart trembled as he approached one of the pillars. He looked at the glowing ball and found what appeared to be a faintly glowing red bead. Wisps of flames continuously emerged from the glowing bead, seemingly possessing a life of their own as they slowly merged into a series of ancient letters.
“Nine Stars Fire Refining Art.”
Evidently, the glowing bead contained a little Saint technique known as the Nine Stars Fire Refining Art.
These flames seemed tiny but gave off an extremely terrifying feeling and seemed to be a power that was far beyond his current cultivation. If Zhou Yuan was not wrong, it was very likely the so-called Law Domain Source.
“So this is a little Saint technique…”
Zhou Yuan’s eyes burned with excitement as his heart filled with desire. Even without coming into proper contact with it, he could already feel that the power of this little Saint technique far surpassed the seven Cangxuan arts he currently possessed.
Zhou Yuan licked his lips. He hesitated in front of the stone pillar for a moment before walking away. Although the Nine Stars Fire Refining Art was powerful, he did not feel anything towards it. This meant that their affinity was not high, and he might not be able to learn it even if he obtained it.
Hence, he cast away his hesitation and began to slowly walk forward.
There were a total of thirty-nine stone pillars in the hall, in other words, thirty-nine little Saint techniques.
Zhou Yuan was filled with expectation. He was likewise dying to know what kind of little Saint technique he would obtain in the Thousand Technique Hall.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
