Chapter 237: Five Treasures

    Chapter 237: Five Treasures

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    Qin Yun was not unfamiliar with divine powers. For instance, the Godfiend lineage that the imperial government cultivated in focused mainly on various divine powers. The Buddhist sacred land Mahākāśyapa Monastery was most famous for its six divine powers-Heavenly Eye, Heavenly Ear, Divine Feet, Telepathy, Predestination, and Unvexed. It was considered a marvel by cultivators all over the world. Another example was the Primordial Chaos Sect. It was of the Physical Establishing Sage lineage but it had a divine power, Nomological Phenomenon, that was extremely famous. Although Daoists could cultivate a Golden Core, they could also have divine powers such as All-Seeing Eyes and All-Hearing Ears.

    "Why have I never heard of the Eye of Lightning?" Qin Yun was curious.

    Ancestral Master Zhang said with a chuckle. "That's because the stone tablet can only be learned from three times. I learned once and my Divine Firmament Chapter's Elder Mu has learned it once. There's only one more time left! The people that have seen the Eye of Lightning in this world only amount to a handful. It's normal that you have not heard of it." With that said, he placed the damaged stone tablet on the table and took out the third treasure from his sleeve.

    It was a flying sword! The flying sword had a blade that resembled a leaf and it was naturally very sharp.

    Just looking at the flying sword... made Qin Yun feel like he was seeing a phenomenon of green leaves slicing apart the world.

    "This is Sword Immortal Green Leaf's Intrinsic Flying Sword. As he grasped a very powerful Sword Dao, he was even stronger than Elder Sword. He sought and gathered many rare materials and eventually managed to raise his Intrinsic Flying Sword to a transcendent-grade Dharma treasure." Ancestral Master Zhang said with a smile. "I think that this flying sword might be of some use to you."

    "Green Leaf?" Qin Yun's eyes lit up. "Senior Zhang, can I study it in detail?"

    "There's no rush. You can take a look later."

    Ancestral Master Zhang placed the transcendent-grade flying sword down and took out a bronze calabash from his Cosmic Bag. He said, "This calabash Dharma treasure is known as the Otherworld Sword Calabash. It is especially meant for sword immortals. Sword Qi can be injected into it and the Sword Qi will naturally fuse with the runic array formations inside the Otherworld Sword Calabash. Once the array formation is completely energized, it will be complete and its strength will reach an extremum! A single thought can permeate the calabash and release millions of beams of Sword Qi to kill enemies. Its might far exceeds that of any ordinary killer moves."

    "However, its flaw is that you will need to replenish the Sword Qi inside the Otherworld Sword Calabash after each use. Even with your rich and immense Dharmic powers, it will probably take you a year," said Ancestral Master Zhang.

    "A year?" Qin Yun frowned slightly.

    Ancestral Master Zhang smiled and placed the bronze calabash on the table. Finally, he took out the final treasure from his sleeve. It was a Buddha figurine that was sitting cross-legged made of wood. It appeared to be carved by a beginner artisan, for it was crudely made. Ancestral Master Zhang said, "This is the Buddhist Amita's wooden figurine. There's something amazing about it."

    Qin Yun was astonished. "Amita?"

    Buddhist monks would often say the word, 'Amitabha.' Qin Yun also knew what Amita's standing in Buddhism was. It was said that this world's Daoists were taught the Dao by the Dao Ancestor back on Numinous Treasure Mountain! As for the Buddhists...they were supposedly taught by the Buddha Amita through a dream, allowing Buddhism to spread in this world. Buddhists kept low profiles and stood aloof from the world but they had unfathomable strength.

    "Five treasures."

    Ancestral Master Zhang smiled as he looked at Qin Yun. "The first is a Yellow-scarved Strongman. There's no need to elaborate on that. The second is the Eye of Lightning. Once it's cultivated to the limit, the Eye of Lightning can even stand in place against the lightning tribulations sent from the heavens. The third is Sword Immortal Green Leaf's flying sword. There are only two Intrinsic Flying Sword in the world that have been cultivated to the level of transcendent-grade Dharma treasure. This is one of them. The fourth is the Otherworld Sword Calabash. The stronger your Sword Qi is, the stronger the Otherworld Sword Calabash is. The fifth is the Amita wooden figurine. This figurine can guide you to dream for a hundred years."

    "Dream for a hundred years?" Qin Yun was perplexed.

    "Your usual dreams might appear very long, but you will realize that you only slept a little after awakening. Have you had such a feeling?" asked Ancestral Master Zhang.

    Qin Yun nodded. "Yes."

    "This wooden sculpture of Amita can guide you into a dream. The dream will be extremely realistic. In the dream, you will experience a hundred years. Of course, a day in the outside world is a year in the dream world. To dream for a hundred years...would only mean a hundred days passing in the outside world," said Amitabha Zhang. "If it's only uniqueness was time, it would not be comparable to the four items here. But the most important thing about it, is that it can guide your cultivation in the dream. This hundred years of cultivation in the dream would be more helpful than cultivating a hundred years in the outside world."

    Ancestral Master Zhang looked at Qin Yun. "Sword immortals only have five hundred years. If you take this Amita figurine, the chances of you creating a Dharmic formulation that can condense an Essence Soul will be higher."

    Qin Yun was immediately moved.

    Even if it could not guide his cultivation, spending a hundred years cultivating in his dream was equivalent to extending his lifespan to six hundred years! Cultivating an additional five hundred years led to more possibilities, not to mention the cultivation guidance it provided.

    "To immortals and fiendcelestials with long lifespans, its value is limited. However, the fact that it it provides cultivation guidance gives it the worth of a transcendent-grade Dharma treasure," said Ancestral Master Zhang. "For a sword immortal like yourself, I think this is the most suitable item out of the five for you. Choose two wisely."

    Qin Yun looked at the five treasures and was tempted.

    Patriarch Yi chuckled as he watched. "My young friend, Qin Yun, it looks like you have a tough choice on your hands."

    "You can only choose two." Ancestral Master Zhang sat there and said leisurely.

    Qin Yun sighed emotively in secret.

    As he looked at the palm-sized Yellow-scarved Strongman, he immediately eliminated it. "If I were to die in the future, the Qin family members will not be able to hide in Grand Dominance City forever. Once they leave, they would lose the protection of the Yellow-scarved Strongman. Powerful cultivators or fiendish demons can use Hypnotizing Spells or other means to control others. They could easily control my Qin family members to lure them outside. It might end up with the Yellow-scarved Strongman being given for nothing."

    "Green Leaf's flying sword." Qin Yun picked up the flying sword. It was cold like a fairy from the moon palace. A chill transmitted from the flying sword, making Qin Yun's hand tremble.

    "According to the available heritage, Intrinsic Flying Swords can typically only reach the first-grade. However, there have been heaven-defying sword immortals that have grasped extremely powerful Sword Dao. Supplemented by some treasures, they were able to forcefully raise their Intrinsic Flying Sword to the transcendent grade." Qin Yun sighed silently. "Since ancient times, there have only been two that have been capable of doing so. Sword Immortal Green Leaf was one of them. My Intrinsic Flying Sword is currently at the second-grade but it can produce strength that matches that of a transcendent-grade flying sword! Therefore, an additional Green Leaf Flying Sword is superfluous. When my Intrinsic Flying Sword reaches the first-grade...it's strength will match a Numinous treasure! This Green Leaf Flying Sword would be worth even less."

    Although it spoke volumes, Qin Yun decided to eliminate it.

    "The Yellow-scarved Strongman and the Green Leaf Flying Sword can be eliminated. There are three items left..." Qin Yun looked at the other three items.

    The Eye of Lightning divine power, the Otherworld Sword Calabash, and the Amita wooden sculpture.

    "The wooden sculpture that allows me to dream a hundred years. I have to choose it," thought Qin Yun. "Taking it is equivalent to having an additional hundred years of cultivation. It can even guide my cultivation."

    "Otherworld Sword Calabash? This is equivalent to having an additional powerful killer move."

    Qin Yun looked at Ancestral Master Zhang and asked, "Senior Zhang, I have never heard of this Eye of Lightning divine power. Can you explain it in more detail?"

    Ancestral Master Zhang looked at the damaged stone tablet, thought for a moment before saying, "I wouldn't dare claim that this divine power is the best in the world but it's definitely in the top three! It is also the most powerful divine power out of the myriad divine powers I cultivate in. Furthermore, when facing the tribulations, one of the heavenly punishments is lightning. One can use the Eye of Lightning to greatly lessen the smite. Therefore, just having the chance to learn this divine power makes its value comparable to that of a transcendent-grade Dharma treasure."

    Qin Yun nodded slightly.

    In fact, when he heard that cultivating the Eye of Lightning to the limit was able to stand in place of the lightning tribulations, he realized how terrifying the divine power was. Even Ancestral Master Zhang, a person acknowledged as the strongest Daoist, said that it was the most powerful divine power he cultivated in.

    "What are the requirements of cultivating it?" asked Qin Yun.

    "There is a very high requirement for one's Dharmic powers," said Ancestral Master Zhang, "The first barrier to entry is usually being an Essence Soul immortal. As you have condensed a purplish-gold Golden Core, making your Dharmic powers match that of an immortal, you are able to meet the barrier of entry. However, even the beginning stages...are enough to aid you greatly. Being able to identify human from a demon, or the light that shines upon a person by providence, or treasure auras are in no way inferior to the Buddhist's Heavenly Eye. And in combat, the might of the Eye of Lightning is even higher than the Divine Firmament Lightning Dharma. The only problem is that the Eye of Lightning is not easily cultivated."

    "The requirements are that high?" Qin Yun frowned.

    He was planning on choosing something for his wife.

    As for himself? Qin Yun trusted his flying sword more!

    Ancestral Master Zhang said with a chuckle, "Why? Are you choosing something for your wife? That lass Yi Xiao wants to step into the Dao and become an immortal? The chances are less than one in a thousand."

    Qin Yun could not help but remark, "My wife is still young and has grasped Lightning Intent."

    "That is an intent obtained when heavenly lightning surged through her body. Has she reached the intent domain realm yet? If not, the chances are even lower," said Ancestral Master Zhang. "One has to step into the Dao to become immortal! Among the human mortals, including you, there are only ten at the Paramount realm! Do you think that your wife can become one of the ten? After the Paramount realm, there's the harder task of entering the Dao! Only by stepping into the Dao would one have a chance of becoming immortal."

    "Since ancient times, how many people have become immortal? Our Daoist school of thought only has immortals cultivating secretly in the three sacred lands. Most top cultivations sects do not have immortals," said Ancestral Master Zhang.

    Qin Yun nodded.

    There were nineteen top sects in the world and there were only a handful of immortals.

    Ancestral Master Zhang looked at Patriarch Yi and said, "By the way, Yi Yan. Do not spread the news that Qin Yun has condensed a purplish-gold Golden Core."

    "I understand." Patriarch Yi's eyes lit up as he looked at Qin Yun. "Nice one kid. You have actually condensed a purplish-gold Golden Core. You hid it well."

    Qin Yun smiled.

    "Have you made your choice?" asked Ancestral Master Zhang.

    "Yes." Qin Yun nodded. "I'll choose these two." As he said, he pointed to the Amita wooden sculpture, as well as the damaged stone tablet.

    The capability to dream a hundred years and the Eye of Lightning. Those were the two.
