Half a year passed since Qin Yu’s arrival in the Dazzling Gold City.
Misty drizzling. The entire Dazzling Gold City was covered by a misty rain. Every well informed person in the Dazzling Gold City came to know that an exceptional person had joined the Dazzling Gold City.
Grandmaster of formation arrays, Qin Yu!
Inside a restaurant, a group of Heavenly Deities were drinking and chatting carefreely. In the Dazzling Gold City, Heavenly Deities were all over the place. For the Heavenly Deities, only the nine large squadron captains, the three Palace Masters and the three Godkings were people worthy of them to genuinely revere and respect.
“In another half year, it’ll be the time of the competition. The position of the Misty Mystic Palace’s Palace Master will definitely be Lord Dong’s. That woman from the Hundred Flowers Palace and that grandmaster of formation arrays also want to become the Palace Master? Humph, they should first look at what sort of achievements and contributions they have provided.” A darked skinned burly man with long hair and beard coldly humphed and said.
At this table were four burly men drinking wine and chatting.
Immediately, someone refuted. “Second brother, you cannot say it like that. Lady Xue Yu is also a High Level Heavenly Deity. She is extremely powerful. Even that grandmaster of formation arrays Qin Yu, he is someone that even Qiuzhong Fu was willing to become an attendant to. You have heard about that Qiuzhong Fu, no?”
The great name of the High Level Heavenly Deity Qiuzhong Fu was pretty renowned in the eastern region of the Divine Realm.
“Not only that, I have also heard that the Flowing Cloud Mansion that Mister Qin Yu lives in, currently has over a hundred Heavenly Deity servants. Those Heavenly Deity servants are neither from our Heavenly Deity Army, nor the Imperial City’s Army, instead, all those servants were personally brought along by Mister Qin Yu.” Said the most slender fellow among the four with a gasp of admiration. “For a single person to possess over a hundred Heavenly Deity servants, I reckon that not even a city’s governor would be able to match up against that.”
Evidently, the other three people had also heard about this matter.
“Truly fucking amazing. Over a hundred Heavenly Deity servants, where did they come from?”
Generally, city governors, for example Yuchi City’s Governor, would only possess several tens of Heavenly Deities underneath them. Even in the Dazzling Gold City, only the Heavenly Deity Army, the Imperial City’s Imperial Guard Army and the three Great Godking’s Palaces would be capable of possessing over a hundred Heavenly Deities.
Qin Yu, he was someone who would be fighting for the position of the Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace right after coming here, he was a grandmaster of formation arrays that had obtained the support of the Utmost East Sage Emperor. Before he had even shown his face around here, a large number of people in the entire Dazzling Gold City already started discussing him.
The Four Great Palace Masters. The only empty Palace Master position, the Misty Mystic Palace Master, who would end up obtaining it? This was still completely unknown.
Flowing Cloud Mansion.
The Flowing Cloud Mansion was bustling with noise and excitement. A lot of Heavenly Deities were gathered together, chatting or sparring. As for the courtyard that Qin Yu was training in, there was no one near there.
Inside the courtyard, inside a speck of dust transformed from the Jiang Lan Realm.
The second layer space of the Jiang Lan Realm!
Waves overflow the sky. The sounds of the waves were like the rumbles of thunder. This was an ocean located at the edge of the second layer space of the Jiang Lan Realm. At this moment, Qin Yu was sitting cross-legged in the sky above this ocean.
A slightly black colored gas and a slightly golden colored gas.
With Qin Yu as the center, these two gases were frantically spinning around and forming a Taiji shape. Merely, this Taiji was much greater than the one in the Universal World.
Qin Yu had only stayed a single month in the Universal World. At the moment when the black lotus core and the golden bead were unable to absorb any more flour paste energy, Qin Yu exited the Universal World and went to the second layer space of the Jiang Lan Realm.
At the beginning, the rotation speed of the black lotus core and the golden bead couldn’t be considered fast. The range of the two of them was also not great.
However, as time passed, after several tens of years, it had turned to such.
“The percentage of the refinement is already over ninety nine percent. Only a tiny bit remains. I reckon that in another year, I should be able to completely refine them.” Qiu Yu’s heart was extremely clear. He continued to calmly put his all into the refinement. His soul’s energy was being unceasingly poured into the black lotus core and the golden bead.
Around the current black lotus core and golden bead, a portion of their surroundings had turned into gases.
In a blink of an eye, a year and half had passed.
Qin Yu’s estimation was mistaken. He had originally thought it would only require a year. However, it turned out that it required him to spend a large amount of his soul’s energy to completely refine the final bit.
After a year and a half, he successfully refined the two items.
At this moment…
Qin Yu stood above the endless waves. The black lotus core and the golden bead had formed an enormous Taiji. This Taiji had Qin Yu as the center and was revolving. Merely, at this moment, practically the entire black lotus core and the golden bead had turned gaseous.
“Since you naturally attract each other, then I shall provide a helping hand.”
Qin Yu slightly smiled, and with an intention from him…
Two brilliant lights seemed to clash with each other and shatter. Before Qin Yu, a large collision occurred. However, at the moment of the collision, no sound was emitted.
The two had fused together.
A dense cyan colored gas had been born. Qin Yu’s Awareness was already attached to this cyan colored gas.
Like receiving an enlightenment, Qin Yu immediately understood what had occurred.
The dense cyan colored gas started to turn around. It then turned into a long cyan haired and cyan gowned youth. That youth had the exact same appearance as Qin Yu.
“True Body!” Said the cyan gowned youth to Qin Yu with a smile on his face. He then no longer spoke.
Qin Yu slightly smiled.
WIth a flip of his hand, Qin Yu took out a golden scroll. The cyan gowned quiet Qin Yu stood beside Qin Yu. Qin Yu started reading the golden scroll with his Divine Awareness. He then smiled. “Magnificent Lotus Clone, according to what is recorded in this golden scroll, the Magnificent Lotus Clone is as hard as a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. However, what about this Magnificent Lotus Clone Variant?”
The cyan gowned Qin Yu merely smiled and didn’t say anything.
Qin Yu naturally knew everything regarding the clone.
An ordinary Magnificent Lotus Clone was as hard as a second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. Second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasures were already extremely amazing and powerful. They were things that were almost impossible to destroy. Even Godkings would need to use Grandmist Spiritual Treasures and also a great amount of effort, in order to destroy a second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
What about this Magnificent Lotus Clone Variant?
It was formed through the fusion of the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus’ black lotus core and the golden bead. In actuality, both the black lotus core and the golden bead were second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. However, they were both cold attributes. When the two of them fused, their might doubled. The Magnificent Lotus Clone created through the fusion of the two was equivalent to a first-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
A first-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure was much more precious than two second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasures.
To have two Grandmist Spiritual Treasures fuse with each other, it was something that could only be accidentally discovered and not sought. It was something determined by the Heavens and not something that could be forced by man. For Qin Yu to obtain the black lotus core and the golden bead at the same time, it was also extremely rare.
“With extreme hardness comes brittleness. Even if it were as hard as a first-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, it does not signify that it cannot be destroyed. However, this Magnificent Lotus Clone Variant instead…” Upon thinking about an effect this clone of his possessed, Qin Yu started growing excited.
Regardless of how hard a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure was, when an attack surpassessed its limit, it would still end up breaking.
However, what about the Magnificent Lotus Clone?
“Return to your origin.” With an intention from Qin Yu.
The cyan gowned Qin Yu turned into a dense cyan gas. This dense cyan gas was drifting in the air. It would occasionally gather together and occasionally dissipate.
This was a remarkable ability of this Magnificent Lotus Clone Variant.
The Magnificent Lotus Clone created through only the black lotus core, once it was broken apart and had its soul destroyed, it would definitely die. However, this Magnificent Lotus Core Variant was different.
Even if Godkings were to attack it with their strongest attack, it would only cause the Magnificent Lotus Clone to crumble back into the cyan gas. However, this Magnificent Lotus Clone Variant that Qin Yu possessed could once again gather together.
An undying body!
Attacking it with Void Flames, Spatial Destruction… there were no methods that were capable of breaking apart this undying body.
Even if Qin Yu’s clone were to be trapped in a space, Qin Yu was still capable of making it return to his Universal World in an instant. Qin Yu’s clone contained a trace of his consciousness. Thus, it was naturally also connected with the Universal World.
“With this clone, I am able to wander the entire Divine Realm as I please.” Qin Yu started smiling.
This clone, once it condensed into a physical body, its toughness would be as strong as a first-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. It was possible to attack with merely its body. As for turning into a gas form, that was something that would only happen should it be met with the strongest attack of a Godking.
With such a strong defense, what about its attack?
Qin Yu’s clone, it possessed more than only physical attacks using its body. It also possessed the ‘Domain Attack!’
The black lotus core and the golden bead were both cold attributed. One could tell merely by the fact that the golden bead had almost frozen Qin Yu’s soul. These two Grandmist Spiritual Treasures were two different cold attribute items. Once they fused together, their coldness was something that even the souls of Heavenly Deities would be incapable of withstanding.
“The clone refined through only a black lotus core would possess a ‘Golden Deep Cold Air Domain.’ However, the domain of this clone of mine is instead the ‘Coldmist Domain.’”
Qin Yu looked to the cyan gowned Qin Yu.
The cyan gowned Qin Yu was emitting a layer of deep cyan cold air surrounding his body.
To the experts of the Divine Realm, the flames were separated into Black Divine Flame, White Pure Flame and Void Flame.
As for the types of cold air, they were in the corresponding order: Unitary Heavy Water Cold Air, Gold Elemental Heavy Water Cold Air and Coldmist Air.
The Coldmist Air was extremely unusual. It could be in the form of gas while also being able to condense into an ice-like solid form in an instant. It was so cold that even the Spatial Domains of Mid Level Heavenly Deities would only be able to at most resist it for a couple breaths of time.
“This clone can also be considered a powerful Grandmist Spiritual Treasure of mine.” Qin Yu thought in his heart.
There were many third-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasures in the Divine Realm. Although the second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasures were precious, there were still a few of those. Only the first-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasures were extremely extremely rare. A Godking would already be rejoicing should they be able to possess a single first-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
The most powerful tools for Qin Yu to rely on right now.
One was this clone of his and the other was the Divine Spear Waning Snow that possessed an extremely terrifying attack power.
“The Divine Spear Waning Snow should not be considered as a Heavenly Divine Artifact anymore. Merely, it also cannot be considered a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.” Qin Yu smiled. “Exactly what sort of weapon should the Divine Spear Waning Snow be considered as?”
After absorbing the Dark and Yellow Energy, the attack power of the Divine Spear Waning Snow had reached a terrifying level.
After successfully refining the Magnificent Lotus Clone, Qin Yu’s strength had increased greatly. He also gained another trump card to use when travelling about the Divine Realm. Qin Yu felt extremely pleased.
“This is a true clone.” Qin Yu suddenly remembered a matter. His eyes started shining.
Qin Yu looked to his own clone.
The clone possessed a soul body within it. Furthermore, there was a trace of his own consciousness in it. Thus, it had naturally created a soul. This clone of his was also capable of cultivating. Furthermore, the achievement of its cultivation was something that Qin Yu’s true body would also be able to enjoy.
“From today hence, this clone shall stay in the Jiang Lan Realm and comprehend the Spatial Laws left behind by Senior Zuo Qiumei.” With an intention from Qin Yu, a seven colored light flew out from Qin Yu’s head. It then assimilated into the head of the cyan gowned Qin Yu.
Qin Yu left behind half of the Zuo Qiumei’s comprehension within the clone. This half was sufficient for the clone to comprehend for a very long time.
The clone and the true body, anything that the clone managed to comprehend, the true body would naturally also comprehend. The two of them shared everything.
With a movement, Qin Yu disappeared from the Jiang Lan Realm. As for the clone, the cyan gowned Qin Yu, it quietly sat on top of a reef stone in the ocean and started to comprehend the Spatial Laws left behind by Zuo Qiumei.
Eastern Region of the Divine Realm. Western District of the Dazzling Gold City. Inside the Flowing Cloud Mansion.
Qin Yu directly appeared in the courtyard of the Flowing Cloud Mansion. He gasped in his heart. “This Magnificent Lotus Clone’s ‘soul body’ is truly valiant. The Nascent Soul that it condensed s stronger than even my own Nascent Soul. I reckon it would match a High Level Heavenly Deity’s Nascent Soul.”
Qin Yu was able to clearly sense the speed at which his clone was comprehending those Spatial Laws.
That astonishing speed was much faster than his own comprehension of the Spatial Laws. This was the advantage of possessing a strong Nascent Soul. Qin Yu was able to clearly sense that his comprehension of the space was increasing at every moment.
“After refining this clone, my cultivation speed has become a lot faster.” Qin Yu felt extremely relieved.
Qin Yu walked out from the courtyard. The first thing he saw were two Heavenly Deities patrolling. Those two Heavenly Deities were slightly startled to see Qin Yu. After that, they immediately bowed and said respectfully. “Master.”
“Good, you two can continue your patrolling.” Qin Yu slightly nodded. He then proceeded to walk toward the location where Uncle Fu was currently.
The Heavenly Deity servants of the Flowing Cloud Mansion were all extremely well-behaved. A portion of them were in seclusion training whereas the others were patrolling, guarding and so on. In the Flowing Cloud Mansion, without walking very far, one would be able to encounter a Heavenly Deity.
Whenever a Heavenly Deity encountered Qin Yu, they would always respectfully bow to him. This gave Qin Yu a sensation of returning back to the Mortal Realm.
Back then when he was in the Mortal Realm’s Palace, the maids and servants would also respectfully address him as “Third Highness’ whenever they met him. Merely, those servants were mortals and his current servants were Heavenly Deities.
“Congratulations on master coming out from your seclusion training.” Uncle Fu had already walked out. He immediately congratulated Qin Yu with a smile on his face when he saw Qin Yu.
Once Qin Yu remembered that Magnificent Lotus Clone Variant and his spatial comprehension that was increasing incessantly, he was unable to refrain from smiling. He said. “Haha, that’s right. This is indeed worthy of congratulations.”
