Qin Yu did not care about the Golden Cores of the Metal Beasts. From Xu Zong’s memories, Qin Yu knew that these Golden Cores were of some benefit to the people from the Dark Star Realm. To be more exact, it is beneficial toward those who train in the Gold Punishment Sect’s martial technique.
“Thank you Lord.” Xiu Ya was filled with excitement. She was thanking Qin Yu repeatedly.
“Don’t mention it. These Golden Cores do not have much use to the current me.” Said Qin Yu while smiling. Since he planned to pretend to be a resident of the Dark Star Realm, he naturally had to pretend to be an expert.
When Xiu Ya heard what Qin Yu said, she immediately grew astonished. The ‘Golden Core’ possessed a very large usefulness toward those who trained in the Gold Punishment Sect’s martial technique. For example, even the ordinary King level Golden Cores are very useful to the seventeen and eighteen star King level experts.
“Could it be that he’s an Emperor level expert?” Xiu Ya secretly guessed in her heart. Merely, she did not dare to ask.
“I believe we’re about to arrive at the Mulberry Receiving Village?” Said Qin Yu while smiling. His Immortal Awareness had already discovered a village not far away from where they were. However, even though he possessed Xu Zong’s memories, it was still impossible for him to determine whether the village was the Mulberry Receiving Village.
That was because the eight villages of the Deep Mulberry Star frequently migrate. That was because they would sometimes encounter herds of Metal Beasts and have no choice but to evade through migration.
“That’s right, my village should be located several hundred miles ahead.” Xiu Ya looked at the surrounding before nodding. Immediately after, she smiled and said. “Lord, the brothers and sisters in my village, they would definitely be very happy to see you.”
The cultivators of the Dark Star Realm adores the strong.
As for Qin Yu, he was a strong expert not just in name only but also in reality.
“For now, you do not have to publicise my strength. I am only planning to temporarily stop by your village. I do not wish for your village to change too much because of me. After some time, I would also have to go to the Elder’s Palace.” Said Qin Yu with a light smile.
Qin Yu was already prepared.
How to become a member of the Dark Star Realm? When Qin Yu obtained Xu Zong’s memories, he had already devised a complete plan in his heart. Of course… before then, he must also learn the martial techniques of the Gold Punishment Sect.
Fortunately, in Xu Zong’s memories, there was a primary level of Gold Punishment Sect’s martial technique.
The martial technique of the Gold Punishment Sect was divided into three different sects of three different levels: primary, middle, and advanced. In actuality, one could reach the pinnacle of Emperor level with any one of the martial technique sets. Merely, the efficiency of each sets of martial technique was different. For ordinary people like Xu Zong, they were only able to obtain the primary level martial technique.
Qin Yu and Xiu Ya continued to fly. Soon, they came to see a village before them.
“Lord, we’ve arrived at my village. If you do not mind, you could come and live at my place!” Xiu Ya said with a smile. “The residence of every one of us in our village was constructed by ourselves. There are no empty residences.”
Qin Yu nodded and smiled. “In that case, I’ll trouble you.”
“You’re not troubling me, of course not.” Xiu Ya’s complexion turned slightly red. For an Emperor level super expert to come to her house, what else other than the greatest honor could it be? Especially this expert who was both handsome and possessed magnanimity.
“What kinds of stupid things are you thinking about?!” Xiu Ya abandoned the wild imaginations that she had in her mind.
Qin Yu did not know about what Xiu Ya was currently thinking. Instead, his attention was completely concentrated upon the ‘Mulberry Receiving Village’ in front of him. With his Immortal Awareness, he had casually inspected the entire village.
“This Mulberry Receiving Village is truly powerful. There are over a thousand people in the village. Other than several hundred Ordinary level people, the remaining thousand plus people are all King level experts. Xiu Ya ought to still be considered as a weakling in this village.”
Qin Yu had attained the complete understanding of the strength of everyone in the village.
While he was investigating with his Immortal Awareness, Qin Yu had discovered one thing… the people of the dark star realm, over ninety percent of them were all training unceasingly.
They were either training in their own house, sparring with another, or training via fighting Metal Beasts outside the village. Only a small amount of them were chatting and laughing with each other.
“What a magnificent cultivation atmosphere.” Qin Yu gasped in admiration in his heart. “No wonder when Xiu Ya first met me, she introduced herself as a cultivator from the Mulberry Receiving Village. It would appear that every single person of the Dark Star Realm is a cultivator.”
At this moment, Qin Yu and Xiu Ya had arrived outside the village.
There were currently several hundred youths sparring with each other outside of the village. Upon seeing Xiu Ya, some of them smiled and greeted her. “Xiu Ya, you have been away for an entire month now. Did you manage to harvest anything this time around? You’d best not say that you haven’t even encountered a single Metal Beast.”
Xiu Ya raised her head up slightly and said confidently. “I encountered one. Furthermore, it’s a King level Metal Beast. I even killed it!”
As she said that, Xiu Ya took out the Golden Core from the Metal Beast that she killed. After showing off in front of her companions for a while, those couple teenagers all looked to her with astonishment.
Qin Yu was laughing in his heart. “It seemed like these teenagers are about the same age as Xiu Ya.” Just by looking at their strength, Qin Yu was able to tell that these couple teenagers were all not at the King level. They were even a lot weaker than Xiu Ya. Thus, he was able to determine that they ought to be about the same age as her.
“King, King level?” A teenage girl covered her mouth in shock. At this moment, many of the people who were still sparring with each other had also walked over. A middle aged man amongst those people said laughingly. “Little Ya, you’ve killed a King level Metal Beast? Not bad, not bad at all.”
“Little Ya’s potential is very high. She could already be ranked amongst the top ten for the people her age.” Another middle aged man also nodded and said.
At this moment, a tanned and robust middle aged man with naked tops and wearing only trousers stared at Qin Yu. Immediately after, he looked to Xiu Ya. “Little Ya, where did this expert behind you come from? How come I have never seen him before?”
Qin Yu did not pay any attention to that robust middle aged man. While this robust middle aged man possessed pretty decent strength, he was likely comparable to a level eight Demon King, but in front of Qin Yu, he is still greatly inferior.
Upon hearing this question, Xiu Ya’s expression turned into one of anger. She said. “Uncle Si Liu, this time when I left the village, I had encountered a King level Metal Beast. Only through great difficulty did I managed to kill it. However, never would I had anticipated that Xu Zong from the Golden Sun Village would take advantage of my serious injuries, try to kill me and steal my Golden Core!”
“Xu Zong, is that the youth from the Golden Sun Village that had once pursued you?” The robust middle aged man called Si Liu said with a frown.
In the Dark Star Realm, each of the villages are usually extremely united. That was also the reason why Xiu Ya immediately showed off the Golden Core that she obtained in front of her brothers and sisters. However, similarly… two different villages are always under constant strife.
“Xiu Ya, what did Xu Zong do to you?” Many of the teenagers around were filled with anger.
Amongst them, a simple and honest looking youth said angrily. “The next time I see Xu Zong, I will definitely kill him.”
“Such a shameless, despicable and nasty person, he must definitely be killed.” The surrounding youths all started shouting.
Xiu Ya instead started to laugh. “There’s no need for that, Xu Zong is already dead.”
“Dead?” The surrounding people were all shocked. Many of the people looked to Qin Yu who stood beside Xiu Ya. Xiu Ya nodded and said. “That’s right. When I was about to be killed, it was precisely this person who killed Xu Zong and saved my life.”
That middle aged man called Si Liu placed his left fist on his right chest. He slightly bowed and said. “Si Liu on behalf of Xiu Ya give thanks to you, friend. May I know your name, friend?”
What’s my name? Qin Yu was slightly startled. Immediately, he smiled and said. “Liu Xing!”
“Liu Xing?” Xiu Ya who stood to the side muttered. It was also the first time for her to hear Qin Yu’s name.
“Liu Xing, this Mulberry Receiving Village thank you for saving our Little Ya. I am wondering if you would like to come to my residence so that I could be honored to entertain the distant arrival friend?” Si Liu’s manner was very courteous.
Qin Yu lightly smiled and shook his head. He said. “There is no need. I am only planning to stay in the Mulberry Receiving Village temporarily. After some time, I planned to go to the Elder’s Palace.”
Upon hearing the ‘Elder’s Palace,’ Si Liu’s attitude grew a bit more respectful. “Liu Xing, if you need anything, feel free to have people come and find me. In the Mulberry Receiving Village, I, Si Liu, manage nearly everything.”
“Lord Liu Xing, Uncle Si Liu is very powerful. In our village, only the village chief is slightly stronger than Uncle Si Liu.” Said Xiu Ya to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu slightly bowed and said. “If I need anything, I would most definitely come to you, Si Liu.”
Qin Yu knew that for the experts of the Dark Star Realm… he cannot use their soul realm’s level to determine their strength. As for the strength of one’s body, it was something that was very hard to determine with merely Immortal Awareness. This Si Liu in front of him, his soul was merely at the level of level eight Demon King. However, as for how powerful his body was, that was something that’s hard to determine.
“Xiu Ya, you can bring me to your residence.” Qin Yu looked to Xiu Ya.
Xiu Ya smiled and said. “Sure, come with me.”
Si Liu then shouted to the surrounding onlookers. “You all, continue training. Stop wasting time here.”
“Yes.” All the surrounding people returned to sparring or training in their own residences. As for Qin Yu, he had followed Xiu Ya and arrived at her residence, a very ordinary looking house.
This house was only a single story tall. There are three rooms in the house. Usually, Xiu Ya would live in the room to the left. The middle room is the living room that’s used to receive and welcome guests. As for the room to the right, it had now turned into Qin Yu’s residence.
“Lord Liu Xing, please go ahead and tell me if you need anything.” Xiu Ya’s face was red. She slightly bowed and said to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu nodded and smiled. “I do not have anything I need. As you’ve obtained the Golden Cores, it’s best for you to go and properly train. I would have to do seclusion training for a period of time. When I am finished with my seclusion training, I would inform you about it.”
“Seclusion training?” Xiu Ya was slightly startled. Immediately after, she smiled and nodded. “When Your Lordship is finished, you merely need to call for me!”
Afterwards, Qin Yu closed the door to the room.
Seeing the surroundings, Qin Yu did not dare to arrange any barriers. He feared that his identity would be discovered. After thinking for a while, Qin Yu had came to a decision… “It’s better that I return to the Jiang Lan’s Realm and train there.”
With an intention.
A silhouette flew out from Qin Yu’s body. Immediately after, it stood on the ground cross-legged. It had the same appearance as Qin Yu.
“Sword Immortal Puppet, it’s been a long time since I’ve used it. It’ll temporarily replace me.” Qin Yu merely left behind a trace of his soul power in the Sword Immortal Puppet. He then took out all of the Top Quality Elemental Spirit Stones.
With a movement of his body, Qin Yu disappeared from the room. As for the clone that he had created with the Sword Immortal Puppet, it continued to sit there cross-legged.
Inside the Jiang Lan’s Realm.
Qin Yu did not go and greet his brothers. Instead, he went directly to the private room in his own residence.
Qin Yu sat down cross-legged. A Gold Punishment Sect’s martial technique appeared in his mind.
“This Dark Star Realm is truly peculiar. The entire martial techniques of the Dark Star Realm were only divided into three different schools. This martial technique of the Gold Punishment Sect could also be considered as being loved by the world and was extremely peculiar.” Upon inspecting this martial technique, Qin Yu started to gasp in admiration.
According to Xu Zong’s memories, this set of martial technique was merely the most fundamental amongst the three sets of martial techniques of the Gold Punishment Sect. It was also the slowest one to train in.
After reading information regarding the martial technique carefully, Qin Yu came to a realization.
The boundless amount of Elemental Spirit Energy in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm could be converted into Gold Attribute Energy, Cold Attribute Energy and also Fire Attribute Energy. In order to convert the energy, a formation array was necessary. As for the major Gravity Gathered Planets, they all possessed an already setted up enormous formation array that has been conducting the transformation. When on those Origin Movement Planets, people are able to directly absorb the Gold Attribute Energy.
However, if one wanted to set up their own ‘Conversion Array,’ one must at the very least reach the King level in order to be successful.
“Never had I expected that the cultivators in the Dark Star Realm do not absorb Elemental Spirit Energy when training! Instead, it’s a converted energy.” Qin Yu exclaimed in admiration. Every set of Gold Punishment Sect’s martial techniques contained within them the method to arrange the ‘Conversion Array.’
The size of the Conversion Array and how many Elemental Spirit Stones are used are all factors that determined the efficiency of the Conversion Array.
“When absorbing Golden Attribute Energy, when one absorbed more than one could control, it would actually… turn into metal!” Qin Yu was unable to refrain from smiling.
When training in the martial technique of the Gold Punishment Sect, one must absorb Golden Attribute Energy slowly and allow one’s body to steadily transform as one absorbed the energy. At the same time, the amount of energy one absorbs must be within one’s control range. If one were to absorb too much Gold Attribute Energy, so much that it surpassed one’s ability to control… one’s body would turn into metal!
The reason why the people from the Dark Star Realm search for Metal Beasts to kill was because when they crack open the Golden Cores from the Metal Beasts, a golden liquid would flow out from the Golden Core. If one were to absorb this golden liquid, then one would be able to develop a part of one’s potential at an earlier date, allowing one to absorb even more Gold Attribute Energy.
Those people with soul realms at the level of level eight Demon Kings, if they were to not use Golden Core, they would at the very most become fifteen or sixteen star King level experts.
If they were to use the Golden Core, after the golden liquid had been absorbed by the body, another portion of their body’s potential would be opened up allowing their bodies to be able even more Golden Attribute Energy. Their strength would then be able to reach seventeen or eighteen star King level expert.
It was the possibility of bypassing ranks. However, the stronger one was, the less effective the Golden Cores are. If one were to become an Emperor level expert, then the Golden Core would have practically no effect. Golden Cores merely allow one’s potential to be released at an earlier date.
Thus, to King level experts and the one or two star Emperor level experts, the Golden Core was still very useful to them. Merely, when one become an high star Emperor level expert, the Golden Core would then become useless.
“The effectiveness of the formation arrays are dependent on the quality and amount of Elemental Spirit Stones?” Qin Yu smiled.
He casually set up a Conversion Array in his private room. Qin Yu was able to clearly sense that a large amount of Elemental Spirit Energy were being absorbed by this Conversion Array and then converting into a special energy.
“I’ll just train according to the primary martial technique of the Gold Punishment Sect.” Soon after, Qin Yu started to train quietly.
