Chapter 1734 – Advancing By Leaps And Bounds

I’ve advanced! Chen Xi finally awake from his meditative state three days later, and he very calmly determined that he’d stepped foot into the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm.

This couldn’t be said to be a surprise because Chen Xi had already been preparing for this for a very long time. In his opinion, the breakthrough of his cultivation was something that happened naturally when the conditions were ripe.

Chen Xi took a deep breath, and then he started sensing the changes in his body.

The first was the changes in the universe within his body. Presently, it had transformed into a golden violet universe that glowed brilliantly and was boundlessly vast.

An Ancestral Root of Divine Energy had been established at the core of the universe, and it flowed with extremely surging golden violet colored Imperial Sovereign Ancestral Qi.

That was where the Imperial Sovereign Dao Root resided.

The Infinite Divine Talisman floated above the Ancestral Root of Divine Energy, and it ceaselessly circulated and absorbed the Imperial Sovereign Ancestral QI from within the Ancestral Root of Divine Energy before spreading it through the universe via circulation.

At the same time, the Divine Energy that surged within the universe were indirectly reacting to the circulation of the Infinite Divine Talisman, and they entered the Ancestral Root of Divine Energy to maintain the production of Imperial Sovereign Ancestral Qi.

Simply speaking, the Infinite Divine Talisman, Ancestral Root of Divine Energy, and the universe within Chen Xi’s body had utilized the Imperial Sovereign Ancestral Qi and Divine Energy as bridges to form a perfect circulation.

The Imperial Sovereign Ancestral Qi came from the Imperial Sovereign Dao Root.

The Divine Energy came from Chen Xi’s own cultivation and the replenishment from the Divine Dark Parasol Tree.

Everything seemed to be extremely orderly and strictly regulated.

If any other Universe Enlightened Ancestral God were to witness such a scene, that person’s jaw would definitely drop to the floor from shock. The reason was that the Ancestral Root of Divine Energy that Chen Xi established was truly too vast. It was like an abyss that was filled with Imperial Sovereign Ancestral Qi, and it was utterly not something that any other Universe Enlightened Ancestral God could compare to.

Besides the changes in the universe within his body, Chen Xi’s soul had undergone an expansion and transformation. The most obvious transformation was that the Soul Divine Flame and Ultimate Divine Dao Altar revealed a brilliant golden violet color, and they possessed the lofty imposing aura of an imperial sovereign.

Rumble!

Chen Xi circulated his cultivation slightly. In an instant, his imposing aura suddenly changed. As his eyes blinked, he emanated an arrogant imposing aura of control and supremacy in the world.

According to Chen Xi’s own deductions, the combat strength he possessed now was at least 10 times greater than before!

This absolutely was a shocking transformation.

However, it was ordinary in Chen Xi’s opinion. After all, up until now, merely Yea Chen and himself were known to have condensed an Ultimate Divine Dao Altar.

Under such circumstances, it was impossible for his combat strength to not undergo a tremendous transformation after he advanced into the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm.

This was Chen Xi’s reserves and resources.

All along the way, his foundation had been tempered in an extremely solid manner, and he’d experienced the baptism of war and battle. So, the accomplishments he’d attained today were closely related to the price he’d paid until now.

Not bad. With my current ability, I wouldn’t be helpless like before even if I encountered an Imperial Monarch…. Chen Xi recalled the scene at the show of the God Burial Ocean when he was completely suppressed by a few words from Imperial Monarch Chong Dou. He was clearly aware that even if he still wasn’t a match for an Imperial Monarch now, it would absolutely not be to the extent of being only able to wait for death to arrive like he had on that day.

It was even to the extent that if he fought desperately, then Chen Xi was even confident in his ability to escape from an Imperial Monarch.

Because he’d been in confrontation with Imperial Monarch Chong Dou, and he’d witnessed the battle between Imperial Monarch Chong Dou and Empress Yu Che. Thus, when he evaluated his current combat strength, he was able to roughly determine exactly where he stood.

As for a battle with a peer at the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm….

Chen Xi was extremely confident in this matter. If he were to encounter the old fellows from great powers in the Imperial Region like Gongye Nanli, then his strength was sufficient to crush them even if he went head-on against them!

According to Chen Xi’s knowledge, there were various types of natural talent at the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm, and varying degrees of natural talent possessed varying degrees of combat strength.

This was very understandable because Domain Enlightened Spirit Gods had to refine and absorb an Ancestral Dao Root in order to charge into the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm, and the Ancestral Dao Roots were divided into grades.

Under such circumstances, one’s natural talent would naturally vary according to the Ancestral Dao Root that one refined and absorbed before advancing into the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm.

Those that refined and absorbed seventh-grade Monarch Rank Ancestral Dao Roots could be called Monarch Rank Universe Enlightened Ancestral Gods.

Those that refined and absorbed eighth-grade King Rank Ancestral Dao Roots could be called King Rank Universe Enlightened Ancestral Gods.

Those that refined and absorbed ninth-grade Emperor Rank Ancestral Dao Roots could be called Emperor Rank Universe Enlightened Ancestral Gods.

As for those that refined and absorbed Ancestral Dao Roots from the sixth-grade and below, they were ranked in order of Peak Rank, Top Rank, First-rate Rank, Ordinary Rank, and so on and so forth.

Of course, this merely represented a form of natural talent, and it wasn’t an actual level of cultivation.

Possessing such natural talent could only allow a Universe Enlightened Ancestral God to bring forth an even stronger combat strength, but it didn’t represent that one’s cultivation would far exceed one’s peers.

Just like Chen Xi who’d just advanced into the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm now. Even though he possessed a natural talent that far exceeded an Emperor Rank Ancestral God, he was merely at the initial-stage of the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm.

If it was compared to the mortal world, then Chen Xi was equivalent to a young emperor in a dynasty. After he grew up, he could control the forces of the entire kingdom, but before he grew up, the authority he possessed might even be inferior to a official in the kingdom.

The official here naturally pointed towards existences that had attained extremely high levels in the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm even if they didn’t possess the natural talent of an Imperial Sovereign Universe Enlightened Ancestral God.

However, an Imperial Sovereign was still an Imperial Sovereign. Even though he was merely at the initial-stage of the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm, but when it was supported by Chen Xi’s shockingly deep foundation and combat strength that was beyond imagination, it was sufficient for him to occupy an enormous advantage amongst his peers at the same cultivation realm.

Moreover, as his cultivation improved, this advantage would increase without end until he crushed all his peers at the same cultivation realm!

This was why possessing the Imperial Sovereign Dao Root was so terrifying, otherwise, Luo Shaonong and the others wouldn’t have fought so desperately just to seize such an Ancestral Dao Root while at the Domain Enlightened Spirit God Realm.

After a long time passed, Chen Xi finally stood up and walked out of the room after he’d fully familiarized himself with the completely new strength he possessed.

When he calculated the time in detail, he noticed that it had already been over a month since he entered into closed door cultivation, and after he advanced, his thought had naturally and instantly fallen towards meeting the Goddess.

When they saw Chen Xi walk out from the room, Senior White and Empress Yu Che’s eyes lit up.

Chen Xi had changed. Unlike before, his imposing aura was even more calm and extraordinary. It was like he’d been washed of all extravagance and returned to simplicity. Everything was so ordinary, yet beneath this ordinariness was a dignified aura that one couldn’t overlook!

“Haha, you didn’t do too bad. You didn’t bring embarrassment to that Ancestral Dao Root that Xuan left behind.” Senior White shot an askew glance over, and then spoke while assuming the position of a senior.

“Congratulations.” Empress Yu Che smiled lightly, and she was extremely shocked by Chen Xi’s speed of advancement.

Since she met Chen Xi during the Starhunt Meeting in Snow Ink Region until now, it had only been less than a year. However, Chen Xi had already stepped foot into the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm. Such a speed of cultivation was sufficient to cause any cultivator to feel extremely shocked.

Moreover, when Chen Xi advanced, he caused boundless golden light to suffuse the sky while violet colored auspicious clouds descended. Such grand and vast phenomena wasn’t something that just anyone could cause.

“Thank you.” Chen Xi cupped his hands towards Empress Yu Che. As for Senior White, he directly disregarded it.

“Has there still been no news?” asked Chen Xi.

Empress Yu Che shook her head. “None.”

Chen Xi couldn’t help but frown. Could it be that Goddess really intends to avoid meeting me? Why exactly is she acting in this way?

Right at this moment, knocking resounded, and then the white spirit deer walked in and strode directly to Chen Xi before it said, “Fellow Daoist, my Master invites you for an audience.”

Chen Xi’s eyes lit up. Just what I was thinking about!

He immediately followed behind the white spirit deer and directly left this courtyard.

Senior White and Empress Yu Che originally intended to follow him, yet they were refused as the white spirit deer said that its master merely invited Chen Xi alone.

So, Senior White and Empress Yu Che could only give up on follow him.

Both of them faintly had the feeling that the reason the Goddess had summoned Chen Xi for a meeting was probably related to the phenomena of the heavens and the earth Chen Xi caused as he advanced.

The thatched cottage was bright and clean. The simple set-up within it was filled with strands of the aura of the Dao, and it revealed an aura of otherworldliness amidst is ordinariness.

When Chen Xi arrived here, he saw a divine, mighty, and slender figure standing within the thatched cottage with her hands behind her back, and she seemed to have been waiting since a long time ago.

“Senior.” Chen Xi cupped his hands. He noticed with a single glance that this was that Goddess he’d met in the Last Days Domain.

Or perhaps, she could be said to be the Temple Master of Arambha Temple!

“Sit.” She flicked her sleeve, and a table appeared before them.

She sat on the ground first, and then held a tea pot weaved from violet bamboo as she poured two cups of tea. She kept one for herself, and she pushed the other to Chen Xi.

The atmosphere in the room was really not simple. It seemed like everything had returned to simplicity, and even one’s mental state was affected by this, causing it to become simple, pure, composed, and comfortable.

Chen Xi sensed the difference in the atmosphere here as well, and he had a stronger feeling that this Goddess’ cultivation was unfathomable.

“Logically speaking, since you came here with a Divine Violet Bamboo Core, then so long as I’m able to accomplish it, I should agree to any request you have. However, you ought to be clearly aware that I once helped you escape calamity in the Last Days Domain all those years ago, so we don’t owe each other anything.” The Goddess spoke with a tranquil voice that carried a wisp of a dignified tone that aroused reverence in the hearts of others. Her body was covered in divine radiance, and it caused others to be unable to discern her true appearance.

Chen Xi was stunned, and then he finally understood why the Goddess hadn’t summoned him for a meeting before this. However, he still couldn’t help but ask. “Then Senior, why have you changed you mind now?”

“There are many reasons. Your Eldest Senior Brother, Wu Xuechan, is one of them, the display you put on is another, and our meeting in the Last Days Domain is the third.” The Goddess spoke indifferently and didn’t conceal anything. “This is karma and fate. Everything is preordained. Since I can’t avoid these ties, then I should naturally take the initiative to deal with it.”

Her frankness caused Chen Xi to be slightly speechless instead.

“Please go ahead.” The Goddess didn’t speak any further. She raised her teacup and took a sip.

Chen Xi raised his teacup, yet he was distracted and probed. “Then can Senior provide Junior with some guidance?”

“You’re talking about eliminating the Divine Black Lich Venom?”

“Exactly.”

“I’m sorry, I can’t accomplish that.” The Goddess answered in an extremely simple and natural manner.

This caused Chen Xi to be instantly stunned, and deep disappointment arose in his heart.

She’s unable to accomplish it?

How could this be?

Eldest Senior Brother would definitely not joke about a matter like this.

The Goddess glanced at him, and then she spoke once more. “Even though I’m unable to accomplish that, there’s a technique that’s sufficient to suppress the might of the Divine Black Lich Venom and cause it to be unable to break out again.”
