    Qin Yun naturally needed to choose the wooden sculpture that allowed him to dream a hundred years. As for the Eye of Lightning, Qin Yun temporarily put it aside for his wife. After all, such a divine power was truly rare, allowing one to identify human from a demon, or the light shined upon a person by providence or treasure auras. It was similar in effect to the Heavenly Eye divine power. However, it was not necessary for Qin Yun. The weakening of the lightning tribulations from the heavenly punishments was only useful if he managed to defy the heavens and create an Essence Soul Dharmic formulation. If not, the tribulation would not happen to him at all. As for using it to supplement him in battle? It was certainly useful but he still trusted his flying sword the most.

    He might as well take it regardless. After all, it was a divine power that ranked highly in the world.

    "Clever." Ancestral Master Zhang nodded and praised him. "This divine power might be difficult to grasp but once you do so, it will aid you greatly. The lightning released can match ordinary immortals and fiendcelestials in strength. If you comprehend the way of the Lightning, the power you would release would be even stronger."

    "Oh?" Qin Yun was a little moved but with the wooden sculpture that allowed him to dream a hundred years, Qin Yun felt that his strength could still improve. He still needed to cast his killer move, Samsara, to match the power of an immortal or fiendcelestial. In the future, when his strength increased tremendously, he would likely be able to do so easily. When that time came, the mastery of the Eye of Lightning would only give him limited aid.

    After all, he did not know anything about the way of the Lightning!

    "Senior Zhang, how do I use this wooden sculpture?" inquired Qin Yun.

    "Just drip your blood in," said Ancestral Master Zhang.

    Qin Yun immediately extended his hand and grabbed the Amita wooden sculpture and the damaged stone tablet. He turned to look at the bronze calabash. "Senior Zhang, can this Otherworld Sword Calabash be sold to me?"


    Ancestral Master Zhang and Patriarch Yi were astonished.

    "I'm not able to use it so I can obviously sell it. But what can you offer in exchange?" Ancestral Master Zhang was puzzled as he asked. "Although sword immortals halt at the Connate Golden Core, making the price of the Otherworld Sword Calabash drop somewhat, it is still in no way inferior to a transcendent-grade Dharma treasure."

    "From the looks of it, our young friend Qin Yun has quite a lot of treasures," quipped Patriarch Yi in a friendly manner.

    Qin Yun removed a Cosmic Bag that he kept under his shirt.

    "You even hid a Cosmic Bag there," joked Patriarch Yi.

    "Please take a look."

    Qin Yun waved his hand, sending the Cosmic Bag flying up. The mouth of the bag rapidly expanded, as a gigantic red-scaled arm flew out, landing in the yard. It was the Other Realm Fiendcelestial arm that Qin Yun had obtained from the Ancient Skydragon Palace.

    "Oh?" Ancestral Master Zhang and Patriarch Yi's eyes lit up. They immediately walked out and carefully studied it.

    When they saw the gigantic claws that were each as sharp as a sickle, they could sense an extreme sharpness despite all the time that had passed. Ancestral Master Zhang could not help but wave his hand to dispel the seals Qin Yun had cast on it. Instantly, the gigantic red-scaled arm produced black fiendish gases. Fiendmonsters began to appear one after another and in a blink of an eye, there were hundreds of them. All of them were snarling angrily as they charged at Ancestral Master Zhang and company.

    Ancestral Master Zhang casually flipped his hand, and instantly, a new seal enveloped the arm, making the fiendish gases dissipate as quickly as they appeared.

    "It's the Skyfiend's arm." Ancestral Master Zhang's pupils constricted in astonishment. Patriarch Yi looked at Ancestral Master Zhang and sent a voice transmission. "Master, if I'm not wrong, this arm is..."

    "It's the Skyfiend's." Ancestral Master Zhang replied with a voice transmission and nodded.

    "Senior Zhang, is this arm enough to exchange for the Otherworld Sword Calabash?" asked Qin Yun.

    He knew very well that even a finger bone of the Other Realm Fiendcelestial would make fiendish demons go nuts! This was an Other Realm Fiendcelestial that had stormed into the Ancient Skydragon Palace, fought the Water race guarding it, and wiped them out. The ancient Skydragon eventually killed it at the cost of his own life and died sealing off the Ancient Skydragon Palace. It was evident that the Other Realm Fiendcelestial's strength was not that much inferior to the ancient Skydragon's.

    When it came to such a fiendcelestial, even a bone or a scale would be worth a lot.

    "Where did you obtain this?" Ancestral Master Zhang looked at Qin Yun. "Was it from the West Sea's Ancient Skydragon Palace?"

    "Yes." Qin Yun nodded. "I was lucky to obtain it. It took me a great deal of effort to deal with those fiendmonsters before I could grab this fiendcelestial arm."

    "It's truly that fiendcelestial. Back then, he managed to obliterate the Ancient Skydragon Palace with his own strength." Ancestral Master Zhang felt wistful. "Unfortunately, all you obtained was an arm. If you obtained the entire corpse, it would be entirely different."

    "The fiendmonsters generated by an arm are already this powerful. If it were the entire corpse, I could not even fend against the most basic fiendmonsters it generates," remarked Qin Yun.

    "That's true." Patriarch Yi nodded. He looked at the gigantic arm and said, "Now that I'm looking at this arm, I'm even more impressed by the ancient Skydragon. Back then, it sacrificed himself to kill this Other Realm Fiendcelestial, preventing him from continue his rampage in this world."

    Ancestral Master Zhang nodded.

    He did not think anything of the fiendcelestial that had been imprisoned in the jade bottle.

    However, the original owner of this arm...was not someone Ancestral Master Zhang would dare to slight.

    "Senior Zhang, can this arm be used to exchange for the Otherworld Sword Calabash?" pressed Qin Yun.

    "There isn't a lot of flesh and blood on this arm but the claws are easily refinable. Every claw is easily a first-grade Dharma treasure. They can even be used to construct a Dharma treasure set." Ancestral Master Zhang nodded. "It is indeed an item of equivalent exchange. Take it. The Otherworld Sword Calabash is yours."

    Qin Yun revealed a look of glee.

    "By the way, if you step into the Dao and experience a great increase in strength, you can still explore the Ancient Skydragon Palace," said Ancestral Master Zhang in anticipation. "That ancient Skydragon was afraid that people from the future would blaspheme his corpse, so he set a restriction that even immortals and fiendcelestials are unable to enter. As for Connate Golden Core realms...even those that have stepped into the Dao are limited in strength. Perhaps,it will be hard to enter the inner core of the Ancient Skydragon Palace, but the Other Realm Fiendcelestial's corpse is something you have a chance of obtaining."

    "I'll give it another try when my strength increases greatly," said Qin Yun.

    Qin Yun picked up the bronze calabash and could control it quickly once his purplish-gold Golden Core Dharmic powers were infused into it. However, it was clear that it was tough for him to control it.

    There was a world of chaos inside the Otherworld Sword Calabash.

    "Its profundity is unparalleled." Qin Yun sensed it, and sensed that there were countless runes flowing within the chaotic world within. It was filled with amazing wonders.

    "Senior Zhang, the stronger the Sword Qi I inject, the stronger the Otherworld Sword Calabash's strength would be," pressed Qin Yun. "Can it still withstand my Sword Qi after I step into the Dao?"

    "Don't worry," Ancestral Master Zhang said confidently.

    Qin Yun nodded and felt delighted.

    It was likely that he would be stuck at the Connate Golden Core realm for a very, very long time. After he stepped into the Dao, it would be very difficult to improve his strength. When the time came, the Otherworld Sword Calabash would be his strongest killer move. The stronger he became, the more powerful the killer move would be. Qin Yun naturally wanted to buy it.

    "Senior Zhang, Senior Yi, if there's nothing else, I shall bid the both of you farewell." Qin Yun cupped his hands and said.

    "You may leave." Ancestral Master Zhang smiled as he watched Qin Yun depart in the form of a beam.

    "Yi Yan, this Qin Yun really is my lucky star." Ancestral Master Zhang held the jade bottle in his hand. "Not only did he deliver the fiendcelestial Puming to me, he even brought the Skyfiend's arm. The arm can be ignored but these claws are truly special! They are easily refined and can become a set of transcendent-grade Dharma treasures. However, the material is extraordinary. I will need to find other treasures to refine them with. If I'm lucky, I might even get a set of Numinous treasures. If only Qin Yun had managed to bring the other arm's claws over, the quantity would be double and, complemented with other treasures, the chances of refining a Numinous treasure would greatly increase."

    A Numinous treasure in the form of a set.

    For example, six of Qin Yun's Cosmic Bangles formed a set which would result in a qualitative change in strength.

    Another example would be the Bai family's Stellar Heavenly Cycle. It was a set made out of 360 stars!

    "The Amita wooden sculpture that Qin Yun obtained will probably ensure that he steps into the Dao soon by allowing him to dream a hundred years," said Patriarch Yi with a smile. "When the time comes, he might be able to bring the Skyfiend's corpse over."

    "It will depend on how strong his Sword Dao is when he steps into the Dao," said Ancestral Master Zhang.


    Grand Dominance. Qin Manor.


    A beam descended from the sky and landed in a garden. Yi Xiao was sitting cross-legged on a grass patch in the garden. There was a flowery fragrance permeating the garden.

    When Qin Yun landed, Yi Xiao opened her eyes, having sensed him.

    "Brother Yun." Yi Xiao stood up immediately and said with a smile. "You sent Shuyan to Sword Tower and your trip took days."

    "I went to the Lu Prefecture on the way. The Lu Prefecture's Yanglai County's Ximen family had up to a hundred clansmen dying every day. It was said to be the work of a mysterious great fiendish demon, so I rushed there to investigate the matter," said Qin Yun.

    "Great fiendish demon?" Yi Xiao was surprised.

    "I later discovered that it wasn't a great fiendish demon. Instead, it was a human. It was the Connate Golden Core cultivator Yu Shiqi from the Black Turtle Palace. The matter secretly involved an Other Realm Fiendcelestial," said Qin Yun.

    "Other Realm Fiendcelestial? What happened?" Yi Xiao was appalled.

    Qin Yun began recounting the entire story and explained what happened with Ancestral Master Zhang.

    Yi Xiao gradually calmed down.

    "Brother Yun, the three treasures you chose are excellent." Yi Xiao nodded in agreement. "However, after hearing the entire story, I think Yu Shiqi deserved his end, but he is also very pitiable."

    Qin Yun nodded. "I have to thank him too. If he had not mentioned the bottle stopper, I'd probably have gone on without knowing that the jade bottle hid a fiendcelestial. He probably guessed that he would die the moment he mentioned the jade bottle's secret. He was truly, fully prepared to die back then."

    "Yea." Yi Xiao nodded.

    "Let's not talk about that. Xiaoxiao, I plan to enter seclusion to cultivate in a few days time," said Qin Yun.

    "Dreaming a hundred years?" asked Yi Xiao.

    "Yea, I'll enter seclusion for a hundred days and dream a hundred years." Qin Yun nodded.
