Library Of Heaven's Path Chapter 2254
Be it the Midnight Flower, Desolate Iron, or Otherworldly Meteorite, the environment that they lived in was not one where most Conferred God Kings would have been able to enter easily. Otherwise, Ao Feng would have already claimed them for himself.
Despite that, there was still someone who had consistently beaten them to it.
Just how formidable was their rival?
Ao Feng pondered for a moment before replying. "Due to the rise of the Heaven Subjugation Monarch, all of the God Monarchs have begun paying close attention to the Flood of Spiritual Energy. For it, they devoted a great deal of resources in order to nurture a group of talented cultivators.
"Based on what I have heard, our Sky of Cloud Dragon has groomed three of such cultivators. Through using the Spacetime Mirror to warp temporal laws, all three of them have managed to receive their conferment from the Cloud Dragon Monarch before the Flood of Spiritual Energy I havent met them yet, but it seems like their strength far surpasses that of other Conferred God Kings."
"Oh?" Zhang Xuan frowned.
Could it be that the Nine God Monarchs knew that this would likely be the last Flood of Spiritual Energy, so they were going all out to ensure their survival?
With a perplexed look on his face, he asked, "Do you know the names of the three Conferred God Kings?"
"Their names are Kong Shiyao, Liu Yang and I think there is one more called Zhang Jiuxiao," Ao Feng replied.
"Its them?" Zhang Xuan was slightly surprised.
He had been very worried about his disciples ever since they were taken away by the God Monarchs. He was a little relieved after hearing that Wang Ying and Wei Ruyan were doing fine in the Sky of Linglong, but based on what he was hearing, it seemed like most of them had successfully become Conferred God Kings.
That was really a load off his chest.
But speaking of which, was their cultivation not advancing a little too fast?
It was fortunate that he had reached the same level, or else how embarrassing would it be if he was no match for them when they finally met each other again?
"Indeed. It isnt just the Sky of Cloud Dragon that has done so. I heard that a powerful expert going by the name of Zhao Ya from the Sky of Adamant Gold was conferred not too long ago, and her unique constitution allows her to easily cripple any opponent.
"Over in the Sky of Blazing Sun, there is a spear expert known as Zheng Yang whose sharp and swift pierces can easily overcome any enemy.
"Demon Monarch Qiankun seems to have taken in a disciple named Lu Chong not too long ago, and he boasts supreme soul arts that are second only to the God Monarchs.
"The Sky of Linglong has taken in two cultivators known as Wei Ruyan and Wang Ying, and one of them is a fearsome user of poison whereas the other is known to be able to breathe life into inanimate beings.
"As for the Sky of Acheron, the Acheron God Monarch has personally guided three cultivators named Yuan Tao, Dan Xiaotian, and Bai Ruanqing, and they have managed to become Conferred God Kings as well.
"Even though all of them have only risen to prominence recently, their strength is not to be underestimated. In terms of fighting prowess, they are more than a match for veteran Conferred God Kings like me!"
Ao Feng was completely oblivious to the peculiar expression on Zhang Xuans face as he swiftly went through the situation in the Firmament. Then, with a grim look on his face, he said, "Do you think that they are the ones who have taken the treasure?"
"This" Zhang Xuan sighed deeply.
From the looks of things, that was likely the case.
He did not have a good gauge of how powerful the other Conferred God Kings were, but if it was his direct disciples, given the simplified Heavens Path Divine Art that they cultivated and the strong foundation they had built up over the years, there was no doubt that their fighting prowess would be top-notch.
They might even be able to defeat Kong shis direct disciples!
It was not that Zhang Xuans ability as a teacher was above Kong shis, but the fragments of heavens that they possessed were simply different from one another.
Heavens Order was an ability that allowed one to manipulate the building blocks of the world and bring one more time to cultivate. On the other hand, Heavens Imperfections was an ability that allowed one to see through flaws and correct them.
Without a doubt, the latter was far more powerful when it came to building up a cultivators foundation.
"The eleven of them are incredibly powerful. If its just one or two of them, you might still be able to subdue them. However, if they team up with one another, Im afraid that even you will face trouble taking those treasures away from them. Elder, even though you are the Conferred God King of the Nine Skies, I advise you not to go head-on against them," Ao Feng said worriedly.
He had witnessed the strength of the young man when he beat Hu Xiao easily earlier, but those eleven were no pushovers. With the artifacts that the God Monarchs had bestowed to them, if they put their strength together, they would form a terrifying force indeed.
That was also why the direct disciples of the Heaven Subjugation Monarch had been unrivaled in the Flooding Sea all this while. Not only were they strong individually, more importantly, their teamwork and coordination were also superb. Unless a God Monarch intervened, there was no one in the world who could subdue them.
"Go head-on against them?" Hearing those words, Zhang Xuan chuckled softly beneath his breath before replying, "Rest assured, that wont happen."
With a wave of his hand, he looked at Ao Feng and asked, "Other than those three, are there any formidable treasures in the Flooding Sea that you know of?"
Whether those treasures had been taken by his disciples or someone else, he had no intention of snatching them. Given so, it was meaningless to think too deeply into this matter.
The Flooding Sea was extremely large, such that it would take quite a bit of time if they had to go around searching the area. It would be much moree efficient to follow the wisdom of those who had been there before.
In his view, even though Ao Fengs cultivation was so-so, the knowledge he had accrued in the Flooding Sea was invaluable.
Ao Feng contemplated for a moment before speaking carefully, "Theres one last treasure I can think of It is the most incredible treasure I have seen in my entire life. If a God Monarch obtains it, they will be able to advance their cultivation to a higher level However, no one has been able to obtain it yet, so it has remained there for decades."
"A treasure that could allow a God Monarch to advance their cultivation to a higher level? What is it?" Zhang Xuan asked.
If such a treasure really existed, it was something that would make countless experts go frenzied over it.
A glint flashed across Ao Fengs eyes as he replied, "Its the Epitome Monarch Pill!"
"Epitome Monarch Pill?" Zhang Xuan frowned.
He had not seen this name in any book records he had read before, but it clearly was not a medicinal herb.
"Its a God Monarch realm pill," Ao Feng replied.
"Pill? Why would there be a pill here?" Zhang Xuan frowned in incomprehension.
The Flooding Sea was a chaotic place where no one lived. Why would there be a pill there, let alone a God Monarch realm pill?
"Rumor has it that before the Heaven Subjugation Monarch became a God Monarch, he entered the Flooding Sea, and with his transcendental pill forging skills, he forged the Epitome Monarch Pill. Back then, he managed to forge two of them. He ate one of them and successfully became a God Monarch. However, as a result of his breakthrough, a cultivation ordeal was summoned, and the already unstable Flooding Sea became even more so. In the midst of the chaos, the second pill got away
"After that incident, the Heaven Subjugation Monarch instructed his direct disciples to find the second pill, but none of them have been able to do it to date. As a result, it has remained here over the years. While it doesnt possess the strength of a real God Monarch, there is no doubt that it has already far surpassed the level of Conferred God Kings," Ao Feng explained.
"It was forged by the Heaven Subjugation Monarch?" Zhang Xuan widened his eyes in realization.
If there was someone in the world who could forge a God Monarch realm pill despite not being a God Monarch, it could only be the talented Kong shi.
Since the Epitome Monarch Pill can help one become a God Monarch, if I can get my hands on it, wont I be able to successfully make a breakthrough? Zhang Xuan thought as he clenched his fists tightly together.
