Chaotic Sword God - Chapter 3492
Chapter 3492: The Star Clustered Ancestor
“As the greatest organisation in the past, the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens has actually become so impoverished. How unbelievable.” Jian Chen sighed inside. With the powerful senses of his soul as an Immortal Emperor, he explored the entire Sword Sect of Violet Heavens and ended up discovering the treasury inside a secret room hidden deep underground.
As the most important place of storage for resources, the defences of the treasury were truly a little worrying to Jian Chen. From the strength of the formation, it could only stop the attacks of late Immortal Monarchs at most.
Moreover, as the only formation that protected the treasury, clearly only half of its power had been unleashed.
Perhaps this was so that the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens could conserve the amount of energy used to maintain the formation, which was why they did not let it unleash its true power.
The senses of Jian Chen’s soul wandered around outside the treasury. After carefully observing the formation, he entered the treasury with ease through the strength of his soul.
In the end, he found the treasury filled with some damaged god artifacts. All of the god artifacts had been reduced to miserable shapes. Even many of the artifacts were still splattered with blood.
The blood all came from Immortal Monarchs or Immortal Emperors. From the traces, most of the blood splatters had already lasted for over a million years.
Half of the damaged treasures were labelled with words. From the contents of the labels, they were all relics of deceased experts of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens.
Only half of them had names. Perhaps it was no longer possible to identify who used to own the other half of the damaged god artifacts, so they were not labelled.
At the very depths of the treasury was an altar crafted from white jade. There was only a single item on the altar, a transparent, jade disc the size of a hand.
A line of large, golden words were written on the altar before the transparent disc.
Star Clustered Ancestor’s item!
“The Star Clustered Ancestor!” When Jian Chen saw the golden words, his heart immediately shuddered. The only people called ancestors in the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens were Immortal Exalts!
He could not help but observe the transparent jade disc a little closer.
“This jade disc should be a god artifact that was not completed. Not only does it contain the power of the Laws of Space, but the materials chosen to forge it had spatial properties too.”
“And from the transparent jade disc, there’s even a trace of blood that soaked into it during the forging process. It definitely was not added intentionally. Looks like the Star Clustered Ancestor was killed while forging this god artifact!”
Jian Chen paused on the jade disc with the senses of his soul. He could not help but recall the death of the third ancestor of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens.
After the battle with the Saints’ World, only three of the ten ancestors of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens remained.
Among the three of them, the first had been killed by the Mistress of Contrary Winds when he had ventured out.
The second had been killed by the experts of the Immortal Feather sect of the twelve courts of heaven.
The first two had both perished outside the sect. Apart from the master of the Pavilion of Heavenly Secrets, no one was absolutely certain about the murderer. They only had their guesses.
Because the murderers had left no traces behind, they could not be found no matter what was tried.
Only the third ancestor had died in the sect. He had even died in his secret room for secluded cultivation.
“There are many relics from experts who fell in battle in the treasury, but there’s only one that belongs to an Immortal Exalt. Don’t tell me that this item was left behind by the third ancestor of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens?” Jian Chen thought.
Afterwards, he looked through the treasury with the senses of his soul again. In the end, he confirmed that the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens’ treasury really did not have any resources at all. The treasury that was originally for storing resources had now become a storage for the relics of the deceased.
Perhaps it was only from these relics that the current Sword Sect of Violet Heavens could see their former resplendence and glory.
Jian Chen left the treasury with the senses of his soul. As a result, he saw a few Nine-heavenly Xuan Immortal core disciples allocating the bit of resources that the Black Demon Palace had brought over to the disciples below.
Many of the Golden Immortal disciples only received a few pitiful low grade immortal crystals, but they still danced around in celebration. They were extremely excited.
As for those beneath Golden Immortal, several disciples or even more than that would only receive a thumb-sized piece of low grade immortal crystal to share.
As he looked at those disciples who cupped a pitiful number of immortal crystals in their hands but still smiled away happily, Jian Chen felt sorrow well up in his heart. He had no idea what to say.
Those resources were all from the aid that the woman in black had brought from the Black Demon Palace.
Yet now, it had become the greatest blessing to the disciples of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens.
“I am Jiang Nan. I’ve come to visit fellow Jian Chen. Have I disturbed you?” At this moment, a voice rang out from outside the wooden hut.
The young man in red was the one who had threatened Qiu Jian when he used the Heaven Observation Mirror to check the auxiliaries. Currently, he was standing outside Jian Chen’s wooden hut, cupping his fist.
Jian Chen had a deep impression of the young man in red. He was a Nine-heavenly Xuan Immortal, but his battle prowess was exceptional. His talent was extremely outstanding. At the same time, the cultivation method he practised and the secret techniques he had grasped were anything but simple.
Coupled with his striking appearance, anyone could tell with a single glance that he came from a great organisation.
Jian Nan was invited into the wooden hut. Afterwards, he studied it without any regard and looked towards Jian Chen with a hint of strangeness.” Fellow Jian Chen, the other auxiliaries are all residing in the immortal palaces that they’ve brought with them. From everyone I’ve seen, only you are still using the simple wooden hut provided by the sect. Don’t tell me you don’t even have an Immortal Tier immortal palace on you? That shouldn’t be the case, right?”
Jian Chen smiled and said, “I obviously do, except I prefer a cultivation environment like this that’s closer to nature.”
“I see.” Jiang Nan smiled. He paused before staring at Jian Chen in interest. “Fellow Jian Chen, earlier in the ring, I saw how you used a God Tier Immortal Technique almost instantaneously, so forgive my shamelessness, but I’d like to ask how you achieved that.”
“Of course, I won’t be taking advantage of you either.” With a flip of his hand, a jade talisman immediately appeared. His eyes shone brightly as he stared at Jian Chen in anticipation and excitement. “There’s a God Tier Immortal Technique in the jade slip. Even though it’s only a basic one, it’s still something that the likes of us can only dream of possessing. If you tell me the trick and method of using God Tier Immortal Techniques instantly, this God Tier Immortal Technique will be yours.”
Jian Nan’s eyes burned with interest. Under normal circumstances, only Immortal Monarchs could comprehend God Tier Immortal Techniques. They could be regarded as their greatest trump card. Only a handful of people managed to grasp God Tier Immortal Techniques beneath Immortal Monarch, but without any exception, anyone who managed that were regarded as prodigies, invincible amongst their peers.
However, there was a colossal flaw, which was that it took far too long for Nine-heavenly Xuan Immortals to charge up God Tier Immortal Techniques.
If there was a way to use them quickly, the increase in their strength would be terrifying.
“Fellow Jiang Nan, if you really want to use a God Tier Immortal Technique in the shortest time possible, there are several conditions you need to meet at the very least. First of all, you need to have half a foot planted in the realm of Immortal Monarchs. Secondly, the God Tier Immortal Technique must be specially created for you, such that you achieve extremely high compatibility with the God Tier Immortal Technique. Last of all, you need arduous practice. With that, the speed at which you use the God Tier Immortal Technique will obviously experience visible increases.” Jian Chen smiled.
Jiang Nan frowned. “According to my understanding, even if you fulfill those conditions, you can’t use God Tier Immortal Techniques instantaneously like how you did.”
“Fellow Jiang Nan, why don’t you think about why some Nine-heavenly Xuan Immortals can tear apart skies and slay Immortal Monarchs, while some Nine-heavenly Xuan Immortals struggle to even defeat opponents one cultivation realm lower than them?” Jian Chen asked.
Jiang Nan sank into his thoughts with that. The fervency in his eyes gradually died out as well.
“Fellow Jian Chen, fellow Jiang Nan, please prepare yourselves and come to the main peak in three days’ time so that you can assist us in powering the Energy-gathering Divine Mountain. Activating the Energy-gathering Divine Mountain takes up a tremendous amount of power, so please be sure to adjust yourself to your peak conditions,” said the core disciple of the Sword Sect of Violet Heavens, Jin Sang, from outside the wooden hut.
