Chapter 1209 Start

Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain.

This was a vast and mysterious space created by the Dao Emperor himself, and it was specially prepared to temper the students of the academy.

Swoosh!

A tall figure tore through the sky and arrived at the entrance of the domain in the blink of an eye.

An ancient and vast Dao Platform floated there, and many figures were standing on it at this moment. Moreover, many figures were ceaselessly flashing over from all directions.

Before the Dao Platform was a pitch black vortex-like space that warped and surged. It was the entrance to the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain.

“This is the entrance of the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain?” Chen Xi looked at the warped and vortex-like space, and he was astounded in his heart as he sensed the terrifying fluctuations emanated from it. This was the Immortal Dimension, and the Laws of the Heaven Dao were extremely solid, yet the Dao Emperor had forcefully opened up a vast space within it that was specially prepared for tempering the students of the academy. This extraordinary ability was unimaginable to an ordinary person.

“Cousin brother, it’s your first time at the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain, so there are some things you need to know. There are a total of 108 levels within this Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain. The first 36 levels are prepared for the Mysterious Immortal Realm, the next 36 are prepared for the Golden Immortal Realm, and the final 36 are prepared for experts at the Saint Immortal Realm.”

“Mysterious Immortal Realm experts have to pay 800,000 Starpoints when they enter while Golden Immortals have to pay 1,800,000 Starpoints. As for Saint Immortals, then have to pay five million Starpoints for each entrance.”

“Right now, 800,000 Starpoints is a great amount of wealth for you, so you must give it your all once you enter. You don’t need to break any records, and all I expect of you is to charge through until the 18th level.”

When Chen Xi stopped at the side, there was a young man that was explaining what should be paid attention to while in the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain to his cousin brother.

Chen Xi has already found out from many books that tempering one’s self within the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain was a method of self breakthrough. For example, at the 1st level, an enemy with a strength around one’s own would appear. At the 2nd level, it would become two enemies. It would be three at the 3rd level…

Up until the 36th level, one’s strength would be able to transform into a state of extreme perfection, and it carried an inconceivable effect towards dealing with bottlenecks in one’s cultivation.

In the countless years of the past, many students of the outer court had challenged themselves through this method, and they experienced a great deal of tempering before finally stepping foot into the Golden Immortal Realm.

Moreover, Chen Xi was also aware that even though the tests of the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain encompassed combat technique and Martial Dao Will, its greatest importance was still to unearth the potential of students when forced to their limits while one’s own cultivation and strength wasn’t of much effect. After all, the opponents within the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain possessed strengths that were roughly similar to the person, so the opponent’s strength would be maintained at a similar level as the person.

“So it turns out that the first amongst us new students has come as well. No wonder I felt that he was slightly similar from all over there. Could it be that he intends to challenge the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain in order to charge into the Golden Immortal Realm?” Meanwhile, a sarcastic voice resounded, and it carried a ridiculing and mocking tone.

As soon as these words were spoken, Chen Xi instantly felt many gazes shooting over towards him. He frowned slightly as he raised his eyes and looked over. He saw the robust figure Ao Wuming was looking at him from afar with a surprised expression.

“It has to be. I heard that this first amongst us new students has always been accepting assignments in the Dao of Talismans lately. Obviously, he was preparing to enter the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain. After all, one has to spend 800,000 Starpoints to enter a single time.” Jiang Canghai who stood by Ao Wuming’s side smiled lightly as he said, “This little bit of Starpoints is naturally nothing to us, but it’s a bit too much to Chen Xi. He’s currently the leader of the Star Alliance and has over ten subordinates that he has to take care of, so it’s excusable that his finances are tight.”

His words were perfectly logical and reasonable, yet they seemed to intentionally reveal a proud and ridiculing tone. When it entered into the ears of everyone else present here, it was obviously no different from mocking Chen Xi. 

Many people felt that Ao Wuming and Jiang Canghai were going too far but no one dared to speak out and denounce them for it. It couldn’t be helped, one of them was a descendant of an Azure Dragon from the Dragon Dimension while the other was a disciple from one of the seven great ancient clans, the Jiang Clan. Both of their backgrounds were monstrous. Thus, no one would go against them.

When faced with this, Chen Xi just silently glanced at Ao Wuming and Jiang Canghai before he said, “I hope both of you will be there during the inner court exam, otherwise it would be too boring.”

Zhao Mengli had spoken these words to him in the past. Now, he’d spoken them to Ao Wuming and Jiang Canghai, and his intentions were naturally obvious.

He turned around and flashed towards the vortex shaped space before the Dao Platform as soon as he finished speaking.

The surroundings of the warped vortex space seemed to be covered in a layer of faint restrictions. When Chen Xi’s figure entered, he heard a buzz before 800,000 Starpoints were deducted from his Violet Ribbon Starcrest, and his figure had instantly vanished within the depths of the vortex.

“Hmph! What shameless boasting! He’s still thinking about sparring with us during the inner court exam? Let me see if you’re able to advance into the Golden Immortal Realm when there’s less than five months remaining!” Ao Wuming couldn’t help but laugh coldly when he heard what Chen Xi said before leaving.

“Haha! Don’t forget that even if he enters into the Golden Immortal Realm, he won’t be able to participate in the inner court exam without ascending into the top fifty of the Allheaven Golden Rankings.” Jiang Canghai spoke indifferently with a smile on his face.

Om~Right at this moment, a wisp of divine light suddenly flashed into appearance on a floating stone stele at the side of the Dao Platform.

“What? Zhongli Xun actually broke the record and is ranked tenth!”

The crowd was bustling while exclaims of shock rose and fell.

It was the Passage Stone Stele, and only existences that charged through the 36 levels of the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain in the shortest amount of time could be ranked on it. Moreover, the stone stele merely revealed the top ten names.

For example, the first was surprisingly Yun Fusheng. He’d utilized 45 minutes and 32 breaths of time, and he reigned supreme at the position of first for countless years. His record hadn’t been broken until now.

This was a form of supreme glory. But most importantly, those that were able to pass through the levels smoothly and have their names on the Passage Stone Stele could obtain ten thousand to one million Starpoints every month according to their ranking.

Of course, this Passage Stone Stele was related to the Mysterious Immortal Realm. For example, the first position on it represented Yun Fusheng’s results when passing through the first 36 levels of the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain while at the Mysterious Immortal Realm.

Moreover, such a stone stele also stood within the 36th level and the 72nd level, and they represented the rankings for the higher levels.

If one wanted to be ranked on these Passage Stone Steles, then there was only a single method — break the records made by the others on the stone stele and one would naturally be ranked on it.

“The 8th is Ji Xuanbing, the 9th is Zhao Mengli, and the 5th is Zhen Lu. I never expected that all the new students this time would be so formidable, and they forcefully occupied four places on the Passage Stone Stele. This is something that’s unprecedented and extraordinary!”

The crowd exclaimed with admiration and discussed it without end.

“Hmph!” Ao Wuming’s expression was slightly gloomy while Jiang Canghai’s expression wasn’t much better. Both of them had just emerged from the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain and had smoothly passed through the first 36 levels. Unfortunately, they used too much time to overcome it, so their names weren’t able to appear on the Passage Stone Stele.

“Do all of you think Chen Xi will be able to be ranked on the Passage Stone Stele?”

“Oh, that’s hard to determine. After all, the stronger one is, the stronger one’s opponents will be within the domain. So it’s a test of combat ability, Martial Dao Will, and one’s own potential when passing through the levels.”

“I think that Chen Xi will be able to be ranked on the stele. Don’t forget the string of battles he participated in at the Dao Development Grounds a year ago. It has already proved exactly how formidable his combat strength is.”

“I think the same as well.”

As they listened to everyone’s discussions, Ao Wuming and Jiang Canghai laughed coldly. They didn’t leave and crossed their arms before their chests as if they wanted to see exactly what level Chen Xi would be able to climb to.

“Dammit! I was actually a step too late…” Meanwhile, a streak of light shot over from the horizon. It was Xuanyuan Yun. He swept the surroundings with his gaze yet noticed Chen Xi’s figure had vanished, and he instantly struck his chest and stomped his feet while sighing without end. 

    …

Bang!

When Chen Xi entered the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain, he felt his vision dim, and then thunderous rumbling echoed throughout the heavens and the earth.

It’s actually the rumbling of the Laws. Chen Xi raised his head and saw that the vast space didn’t have any aura of life, and it was desolate and deathly silent. On the other hand, the sky roiled with layer upon layer of the energy of the Grand Dao Laws, and it carried a shocking impetus that was like the rumbling of thunder, causing it to seem extremely astounding.

According to what was recorded within the Profound Views on Breakthrough written by Yun Fusheng, everything within the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain is the embodiment of my own strength, whereas the opponents that will appear soon are actually the projection of my own will, cultivation, and strength. Defeating an opponent is actually no different from defeating myself… Chen Xi pondered in his heart.

“The tests will begin in ten breaths from now.” An indifferent voice that carried no emotion at all resounded through the heavens and the earth.

Chen Xi’s heart shook before he took a deep breath, and his gaze instantly became piercingly cold and murderous.

During the time he was at the Scripture Pavilion, he’d read no less than a hundred books, so he had numerous obvious thoughts and comprehensions towards breaking through into the Golden Immortal Realm while he’d come to the Illusory Heaven Immortal Domain to use this sort of tempering and surpass himself. He desired to completely grasp and transform everything he’d comprehended in the Scripture Pavilion into his own strength.

This strength was the key to breaking through into the Golden Immortal Realm!

Om!

Ten breaths of time passed in the blink of an eye. Along with a droning rumble, a figure was condensed into form 3km away from Chen Xi. It was a black clothed person with a cultivation, will, vital energy, and even imposing aura that was similar to Chen Xi. Moreover, their appearances were exactly the same.

Clang!

An immortal sword appeared in the palm of the black clothed person, and then his figure flashed as he charged over with sword in hand. He utilized a powerful move as soon as he attacked, and the sword light emanated was fierce and swift like surging lightning as it swept through the horizon.

This was an extremely unfamiliar sword move to Chen Xi, yet it was fast, fierce, and formidable beyond all doubt. Moreover, it even possessed a strength that surpassed the supreme grandmaster level in the Sword Dao just like Chen Xi.

Swoosh!

At the same time, Chen Xi moved as well. The Starclasp Immortal Sword soared through the sky and transformed into a flowing ray of light that flashed closely beside the black clothed figure’s sword qi while their figures had already crossed each other.

Pu!

The black clothed figure’s head shot into the sky while his entire figure transformed into tiny bits of light that vanished into nothingness. 

A head flew with a single strike!
