Huangfu Ling who sat next to Huangfu Jing stood up. “Imperial Father, Aunt, the two of you should stop arguing. I’ve heard that this Qin Yu is extremely amazing. The formation array that he deployed was so powerful that even High Level Heavenly Deities were unable to break through it. With merely that formation array, Big Sis Xue Yu and Big Bro Dong Hou would be unable to break through it. For Qin Yu to be the Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace, I am in favor of that with both my hands and feet!
“Feet too? Oh, you little girl.” Hundred Flowers Godking Huangfu Liuxing started laughing.
[TL: being in favor with both hands = completely in favor. However, she even said she’s in favor of that with her feet too.]
Qin Yu also smiled as he looked to this Huangfu Ling. She was truly an adorable little girl.
At this moment, Huangfu Liehuo said carefreely. “What’s the need to make the situation this complicated? Let’s just make it a bit more simple and have them fight against each other. Whoever is stronger shall be the Palace Master. Wouldn’t this solve the problem?”
Qin Yu who had been carefully listening to entire time, upon hearing what Huangfu Liehuo said, started smiling in his heart.
If they were to truly compete, then he could just deploy the formation array and then, regardless of how much the other two people tried to resist, it would still be impossible for them to escape the formation array. In the formation array, they could only allow themselves to be ravaged by him.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu’s eyes shined. He nodded and said. “Good. In that case, we shall use the method proposed by Liuhuu and have them…”
“What’s good about that?” Huangfu Liuxiang interrupted the Utmost East Sage Emperor.
Huangfu Liuxiang gave the Utmost East Sage Emperor a side-eye glance and said. “Second brother, you clearly knew that Qin Yu was capable of deploying a formation array space. The possibility that Xue Yu and Dong Hou being able to win against him is too low, truly too low. Aren’t you deliberately trying to let Qin Yu win?”
“Liuxiang, in that case, what do you propose?” The Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu looked to Huangfu Liuxiang.
Qin Yu also looked to this Hundred Flowers Godking. He was wondering what sort of method to select the Misty Mystic Palace’s Palace Master this Hundred Flowers Godking would be proposing.
Huangfu Liuxiang was silent for a moment. She then said. “The Misty Mystic Palace is one of the Four Great Palaces. The Palace requires not merely a Palace Master, it also requires a large number of subordinates. Only thus would it be qualified to be one of our Mount Dazzling Gold’s Four Great Palaces.”
“Since it requires subordinates, then we must inspect the quality of the subordinates. How about this… we are to have three competitions. One for the potential successor of the Palace Master, one for the Mid Level Heavenly Deities and one for the Low Level Heavenly Deities.”
“Among the three competitions, if one side were to win two of the competitions, then they shall be declared the winner. Qin Yu shall be on one side, Dong Huo shall be another and Xue Yu shall also be another. The three sides shall alternate to fight. The side that wins the most battles shall be the Palace Master. What do you all think about that?” Huangfu Liuxiang had a smile on her face.
Xue Yu was her disciple. For a Godking like her, finding powerful Mid Level Heavenly Deities and Low Level Heavenly Deities was an extremely easy task.
“That?” Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu frowned.
It was clear that his sister was determined to help that Xue Yu. If a Godking was determined to help someone, then the line-up for the matches would definitely be extremely exceptional. It might be very hard for Qin Yu to win.
Furthermore, what about Dong Hou? Standing behind him was practically the entire Heavenly Deity Army. Selecting the strongest Mid Level Heavenly Deity and Low Level Heavenly Deity among the Heavenly Deity Lineup, there was also no need to mention how exceptional his line-up would be.
What sort of line-up could Qin Yu possibly send forth?
The Utmost East Sage Emperor suddenly said. “Qin Yu has just come to our Mount Dazzling Gold. I have yet to provide him with anything yet. In that case, let me bestow upon him a group of imperial guards…”
“Second brother, you most definitely cannot so openly support Qin Yu.” Said Huangfu Liuxiang while smiling. “Regardless of whether it’s Qin Yu, Dong Hou or my disciple Xue Yu, the people they sent forth must be people that they personally invited and received consent from them. People other than the three of them cannot forcefully impose orders to help those three! Regardless of whether it is me, second brother you, or big brother, none of us are allowed to interfere.”
The Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu was angered speechless.
Not provide a helping hand?
Xue Yu had followed the Hundred Flowers Godking for too long, who among the Hundred Flowers Godking’s Palace did not possess a good relationship with Xue Yu? If Xue Yu were to invite them to help, who among them would refuse?
There was also no need to mention Dong Hou’s reputation.
What about Qin Yu? How many people could he possibly know? Why would others help Qin Yu?
“Your Majesty Sage Emperor, there is no need for you to demand insistently about this matter. If I were to be able to obtain this position, then I shall obtain it. If I cannot obtain it, then it means that it was never meant for me. Let’s go with the method proposed by Her Majesty Hundred Flowers Godking. The people sent forth by me, they must have agreed to it themselves.” Qin Yu said.
Huangfu Liuxing started laughing. “Second brother, did you hear that? Even Brother Qin Yu himself has agreed to it.” As she said that, Huangfu Liuxing even smiled to Qin Yu. “Little Brother Qin Yu is truly reasonable.”
The Utmost East Sage Emperor took a glance at Qin Yu and then sighed.
Huangfu Jing also sent a Divine Awareness Voice Transmission to Qin Yu and said in an aggrieved tone. “Qin Yu, while you might’ve captured some people, but they are at most those Heavenly Deities that are bandits, right? How high could the standards of those bandits be? My aunt, each and every one of her disciples are elites. As for that Xue Yu, she is someone that my aunt treated like her own daughter. She even possesses a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure!”
Grandmist Spiritual Treasure?
Qin Yu was slightly startled.
It would appear that he had underestimated the Hundred Flowers Godking. As a Godking, even if he doesn’t openly help her disciple, she was still extremely formidable when helping her from the shadows.
Qin Yu had a smile on his face.
He was completely confident!
The Utmost East Sage Emperor could only smile helplessly. He then said. “Well then, since this was the case, then the matter is decided. As for the time of the competition, let’s set it as…”
“There’s no need to rush. This bears upon the position of the Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace. It is best to properly set the preparations for it. How about this, let’s make it a year from now. It shouldn’t be too late for the competition to be a year from now.” Huangfu Liuxiang immediately said.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor was truly unable to win against his own sister. Thus, he could only nod. “Good, good, a year from now. We shall determine the Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace this day a year from now.”
“Second brother, since we’ve determined it to be so, I’ll take my leave first.” Huangfu Liuxing stood up while beaming with smiles.
When Huangfu Liuxing walked by Qin Yu, she even slightly smiled to Qin Yu and said to him via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission. “Little guy, you must properly give it your all. Don’t let your people lose too miserably.”
After that, the Hundred Flowers Godking left like that.
“A year?’ Qin Yu thought in his heart. “A year outside is a hundred years in the second layer space of the Jiang Lan’s Realm. A hundred years, even if it is not enough for my Divine Energy to completely transform into Heavenly Divine Energy, it is still sufficient for me to refine the Magnificent Lotus Clone.”
Qin Yu had long since wanted to refine the Magnificent Lotus Clone.
According to the records of the Bewitching God Temple’s golden scrolls, once one successfully refines the Magnificent Lotus Clone, one’s body would become indestructibly hard. After all, the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was comparable to a second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. The core of the Nine Petaled Magnificent lotus, the lotus core, was incomparably hard. The clone created through the lotus core definitely possessed a hardness that surpassed that of a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact.
Furthermore, the Magnificent Lotus Clone naturally possessed a special domain.
“With this Magnificent Lotus Clone, I would not fear even if I were to fight against a High Level Heavenly Deity head on.” Qin Yu was extremely confident. With a hardness that surpassed High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact, even spatial cracks would not be able to rip it apart.
The Magnificent Lotus Clone was essentially a human shaped Grandmist Spiritual Treasure!
“However, it is unworthy for me to take out this Magnificent Lotus Clone during the competition.” There was no need for Qin Yu to take out the Magnificent Lotus Clone unless it was a moment of crisis.
This was especially true when he added on the Divine Spear Waning Snow and the teleportation technique on top of the Magnificent Lotus Clone!
Defense, attack power and speed, all of them were at the apex. Such an existence was completely able to sweep across all the Heavenly Deities. Even when confronted with Godkings, such an existence would still be able to fight against them.
This was Qin Yu’s strongest power. Merely. Qin Yu would not easily display such power to others.
Without the Magnificent Lotus Clone, Qin Yu’s weakest point was his defense. Regardless of how tough his body was, he would still not be able to withstand the Spatial Destruction technique of High Level Heavenly Deities as his body was no Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
“The most important thing to do is to refine the Magnificent Lotus Clone.” Qin Yu thought in his heart. “After the Utmost East Sage Emperor arranges a place for me to live, I shall start concentrating on refining the Magnificent Lotus Clone.”
At this moment, the Utmost East Sage Emperor spoke. Qin Yu immediately woke back up from his thoughts.
“I am very happy that you were willing to come to my Mount Dazzling Gold. I have already prepared gifts for you. I hope you would like them.” With a wave of the Utmost East Sage Emperor’s hand, a large black chest appeared in the pavilion building.
Not only Qin Yu, even the other people looked to this large black chest with confused expressions. The Utmost East Sage Emperor’s present would definitely not be ordinary. What exactly was in this large black chest?”
“Qin Yu, you can open it.” Said the Utmost East Sage Emperor with a smile on his face.
“Thank you, Your Majesty Sage Emperor.” Qin Yu did not refuse. He walked forward and opened the large black chest.
“Clang…” After the chest was opened, other than the Utmost East Sage Emperor who was looking at Qin Yu with a smile on his face, the other people all looked to the chest.
The chest was tidily filled with golden scrolls. With a sweep from Qin Yu’s Divine Awareness, he discovered that there were over a thousand golden scrolls in this chest.
At this moment, Qin Yu felt a burst of delight in his heart.
To ordinary Heavenly Deities, what was the most precious? It wasn’t Divine Spiritual Stones. Instead, it was records like the golden scrolls. What the golden scrolls recorded was the experience of those seniors before them.
For example, Qin Yu, if he did not possess the nine hundred golden scrolls of the ‘Array Path,’ how would he possibly be able to set past the entrance of the ‘Array Path?’ Had it not been for his study of the Array Path, then he would likely be unable to even understand the theory of the level eight formation arrays. If he doesn’t understand it, then even if he knew the spatial laws of the Universal World, he would still not be able to create a formation array space.
When Heavenly Deities obtained a single golden scroll, they would already be overjoyed.
“Your Majesty Sage Emperor, these are?” Qin Yu said in amazement.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor smiled and said. “These are all the golden scrolls of my Utmost Eastern Region’s Mount Dazzling Gold that contain information regarding the entire path of artifact refining. These are the records that contain information pertaining to methods of artifact crafting. Of course, the works regarding formation arrays are not among them. To have you read works regarding formation arrays would be the same as mocking you.”
“They are all about artifact crafting?” Qin Yu was unable to conceal his surprise.
“That’s right, they’re all about artifact crafting.” Said the Utmost East Sage Emperor with a smile on his face.
It was very evident why the Utmost East Sage Emperor invited Qin Yu. He wanted Qin Yu to craft artifacts! The usefulness of a grandmaster of formation arrays was not great. However, a grandmaster of the artifact crafting, especially one who has reached the ‘Craftsman God’s’ level, possessed a great amount of use.
It was extremely possible for a grandmaster of formation arrays to become a grandmaster of artifact crafting.
Qin Yu looked to Uncle Fu beside him. Uncle Fu also had an excited expression in his eyes.
Although the ‘Craftsman God’ Chehou Yuan was extremely amazing in the artifact crafting path, his artifact crafting path were all things that he had personally researched. He merely possessed over four hundred golden scrolls pertaining to artifact crafting.
Although the ‘Craftsman God’ Chehou Yuan was extremely amazing at crafting artifacts, it was not because he possessed astonishing accomplishments in the artifact crafting path. Instead, it was because he achieved astonishing accomplishment in formation arrays. In terms of artifact crafting… when compared to the Huangfu Clan that had existed since the birth of the Divine Realm, Chehou Yuan was not necessarily stronger.
“To gather the thoughts of many schools, it is always beneficial to read more.” Qin Yu happily waved his hand and accepted this large black chest.
“Thank you, Your Majesty Sage Emperor, for the gift. I will definitely strive my hardest to study them. I am also very interested in crafting artifacts.” Said Qin Yu with a smile on his face.
Hearing Qin Yu’s speech, the Utmost East Sage Emperor immediately started laughing heartily.
What he wanted was precisely for Qin Yu to craft artifacts!
“Jing’er, arrange for that empty mansion house in the western district of the city that belonged to me to give to Qin Yu. You can bring him over to receive that mansion house right away. In the future, he can live there.” Said the Utmost East Sage Emperor with a smile on his face.
Huangfu Jing immediately stood up and said willingly. “Yes, Imperial Father.”
Yuchi Gonglan had already left to see his old friend. As for Qin Yu and them, they followed behind Huangfu Jing and Huangfu Ling out of the Imperial City and proceeded to walk toward the western district.
Because of the fact that there were not many people in the Dazzling Gold City, although the city was over a thousand miles in circumference, there were still many places for people to live. This caused the residences of every single person to be pretty large. Their appearances were also fantastic oddities of every description.
“Qin Yu, back then, you shouldn’t have agreed to it that easily. Although my aunt is sometimes a bit overbearing and tyrannical, as long as the debate continued, my aunt would still make a bit of a concession. Now that you could only rely on your own people, how could you possibly be able to compete for the position of the Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace?” Huangfu Jing felt regret for Qin Yu.
Huangfu Ling also firmly nodded her head to express her agreement.
Qin Yu was about to say something when… “Big brother, leave the battle for the Low Level Heavenly Deity to me.” Hei Yu’s voice sounded.
Qin Yu looked at Hei Yu. Xiao Hei’s Flowing Light Spear Path was something that even Qin Yu was unable to see through. Qin Yu was also looking forward to the scene of Xiao Hei fighting against others.
“Good, I’ll leave the battle of the Low Level Heavenly Deity to you.” Said Qin Yu with a smile.
“Uncle Fu, after we arrive at the mansion house, you shall be in charge of everything in the mansion house. I will also let out those Heavenly Deity servants of mine. After we return, I plan to enter seclusion training for a period of time.” Said Qin Yu to Uncle Fu as they walked on the road.
“Yes, master.” Uncle Fu said respectfully.
Qin Yu was thinking about that Magnificent Lotus Clone the entire time. At the same time, other than the Magnificent Lotus Clone, Qin Yu also thought of the golden bead.
“That golden bead, during the time when my soul was still at the Golden Soul Pellet stage, my soul was unable to touch it at all. Now that my soul has reached the Embryo Soul stage, I should be able to refine it.”
Qin Yu became even more excited.
The Magnificent Lotus Clone and that golden bead that he had never heard about. Once he refined these two items, what sort of things would they bring him?
