Chapter 3629: The Ninth Floor of the Sacred Land
Jian Chen held the scroll and studied it closely. Despite knowing that he would be unable to unleash its full power for a very long time, possessing a Grand Exalt’s formation was still something worth celebrating.
Although the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens possessed a Grand Exalt’s formation in the past, the Great Void Sword Formation of the Demonic and Divine, it was already lost. It was extremely likely for a part of it to have fallen into the hands of the Sacred Beast clan.
As a result, the difficulty that came with reassembling the Great Void Sword Formation of the Demonic and Divine was evident.
But very soon, Jian Chen noticed something, and the joy on his face suddenly froze. He frowned and said, “This scroll only seems to be a copy. It’s not permanent? The special power in the scroll also seems like it’ll vanish once used?”
“Of course, it’s not permanent. This is a Grand Exalt’s formation after all. The Xuanhuang Qi you’ve given me is very precious, but it’s still nowhere close to the value of a Grand Exalt’s formation. However, the Divine Formation of the Heavens that I’ve given you is enough for you to use for a million years.”
“Of course, that’s assuming the Divine Formation of the Heavens isn’t damaged. If there’s any damage, it definitely won’t last that long.”
The artifact spirit explained like it was common sense.
Jian Chen was relieved after hearing the artifact spirit’s explanation. The artifact spirit was right. The heavenly resources he had offered up came nowhere close to a Grand Exalt’s formation in terms of value. He really was dreaming a little if he thought he could use a great pile of Immortal Tier heavenly resources to exchange for a Grand Exalt’s formation.
Moreover, a million years of use was basically no different from permanent in Jian Chen’s eyes.
That was because he had only cultivated for around ten thousand years so far.
After carefully stowing away the scroll in the space in his soul, Jian Chen continued using his Xuanhuang Qi to pave a path, making it onto the eighth floor of the sacred land.
Two stone pillars stood in the centre of the eighth floor of the sacred land. Jian Chen discovered a familiar figure on one of them.
Jian Chen narrowed his eyes slightly. In the next moment, he vanished silently, having used the Laws of Space to appear on the empty stone pillar near Ye Qingyun.
Jian Chen stood atop the stone pillar and stared at Ye Qingyun with his hands behind his back. “You’ve actually come to the eighth floor. That sure has taken me by surprise. After all, even the Ye family behind you probably can’t afford to pay the price to go from the third floor to the eighth floor.”
Ye Qingyun opened his eyes slowly. He did not seem to be surprised at all by the fact that Jian Chen could make it here. “This is also the first time that I’ve heard of an independent cultivator managing to make it to the eighth floor of the sacred land.”
Ye Qingyun paused for a moment before clasping his fist towards Jian Chen. “Fellow Chang Yang, I’ve caused you great offence during the competition before. Please forgive me.”
“Are you referring to your threats? I’ll be honest with you, I never took your threats seriously, as in my eyes, you don’t possess the ability to threaten me,” Jian Chen said indifferently. He had hid a lot of his strength during the contention for the post. He never ended up using the Divine Armour of Heavenflight, the twin swords, or the Profound Sword Qi.
As for Ye Qingyun, he had even produced a God Tier pill like the fleshly core. He obviously had not held back at all.
Jian Chen had held back, hiding away several of his trump cards, while Ye Qingyun had used his full strength.
The difference was evident.
Ye Qingyun did not concern himself with the arrogance in Jian Chen’s words. He sighed gently and said, “Back then, I thought our Ye family had paid a great price in exchange for the available position among the Thousand Immortal Generals, which was why I had become truly infuriated when you insisted on contending for the position. But afterwards, I learnt from senior Fire Virtue that the position had not opened up because of the machinations of our Ye family.”
“As a result, I only realised afterwards that the first available position among the Thousand Immortal Generals had only appeared probably due to you.”
As he said that, Ye Qingyun could not help but recall the stern warning from the Master of Fire Virtue back then in the vice city lord’s estate.
It was also from the Master of Fire Virtue that he learnt Jian Chen possessed a mysterious background.
He did not know just how powerful his background was, but he definitely was not someone that the Ye family could provoke.
Jian Chen had a simple conversation with Ye Qingyun before leaving the eighth floor and proceeding to the ninth.
Not only did he pay the price to enter the ninth floor, but he also exchanged for several thousand years of cultivation time in the sacred land using the Xuanhuang Qi that the artifact spirit required.
This led to a significant reduction in the heavenly resources from the Xuanhuang Microcosm in Jian Chen’s possession. Apart from the mid grade God Tier heavenly resources that remained untouched, he had basically run out of all heavenly resources with grades below that.
As soon as he arrived on the ninth floor, Jian Chen discovered a colossal stone pillar standing in the centre of the sacred land.
There was only a single stone pillar on the entirety of the ninth floor. It was several times larger than the stone pillars on the eighth floor.
Jian Chen’s gaze subconsciously landed on the top of the stone pillar, but when he discovered the person seated up there, he immediately became stunned.
He was a young man in white robes. He seemed to be in his early twenties and had a handsome and striking appearance. A profound presence emanated from him.
He was clearly in the midst of cultivation. The presence of Stainless Qi on the entire ninth floor gathered over from all directions, absorbed by the young man.
Surrounded by such tremendous energy, an invisible swirl even appeared around the young man, furiously drawing in the energy.
However, what truly surprised Jian Chen was the young man’s strength. He was not a Ninth Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperor, but a Sixth Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperor.
Out of all of the Thousand Immortal Generals of the Observance Heaven City, they were all Ninth Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperors apart from him.
That would only mean that the young man did not hold a post in the Observance Heaven City, yet despite that, he had come to the ninth floor of the sacred land!
Shortly afterwards, Jian Chen shifted his gaze downwards and discovered the city lord of the Observance Heaven City, Jiang Pingtian. He was several tens of thousand metres away from the stone pillar.
At this moment, Jiang Pingtian had his legs crossed as he hovered a metre in the air.
That immediately left Jian Chen very shocked. An external Sixth Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperor had occupied the only stone pillar on the ninth floor, while Jiang Pingtian, the city lord of the Observance Heaven City, was now sitting on the ground. Normally, he should have received such treatment instead
Who exactly was the young man? Why would he get the late Immortal Exalt Jiang Pingtian to sit beneath him?
Suddenly, Jian Chen’s eyes blurred, and Jiang Pingtian’s figure silently appeared before him. With a wave of his hand, a power so great that Jian Chen could not resist immediately erupted, bringing Jian Chen to the edge of the ninth floor of the sacred land.
They were very far away from the central stone pillar now.
“Remember, do not create too much of a disturbance. We can’t afford to disturb his cultivation,” Jian Pingtian set up an energy barrier before telling Jian Chen sternly.
Jian Chen struggled to hide his shock. He clasped his fist. “Senior Jiang, what are the origins of that person?”
Jiang Pingtian looked at the figure in white on the stone pillar. His expression became filled with undisguised speechlessness and emotion, as well as a sense of self-deprecation. After a moment of silence, he said slowly, “He is the crown prince of the Waymight clan, a… legendary figure who’s shocked the entire Immortals’ World and has even changed the fate of the entire Immortals’ World…”
