    Chapter 246: Breakthrough. Godfiend Realm (Part 2/2)

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    A wisp of Godfiend power flew out of Qin Yun's body, permeating the Stone of the Earth in front of him. The instant it penetrated the stone-


    His mind went into a buzz.

    In Qin Yun's perception, he 'saw' an exceptionally profound runic pattern. On it, there were all sorts of runes that were constantly in flux. The Highwarrior Three Volumes cultivation manual had a total of six runic patterns and it was said that comprehending the sixth runic pattern would allow one to achieve the third Firmament of the Godfiend realm. But at that moment, the runic patterns that Qin Yun sensed from the Stone of the Earth seemed more profound than the sixth runic pattern.

    Stately, expansive, strength, the land...

    Qin Yun felt that he was seeing a portion of the Heavenly Dao's maneuvering and it moved his heart.

    "Acquiring comprehension of the Dao in the morning leaves one contented even if one dies in the evening."

    "I have been cultivating my sword all this while and today, I have finally seen the Dao for myself."

    Qin Yun was filled with excitement.

    At that moment, the mysterious powers in the Stone of the Earth surged into Qin Yun's body.

    His blood was boiling as every muscle, bone, meridian, and organ-down to the very last cell-rejoiced. The original third Firmament Mortal realm runic pattern on his most important organ-his heart-seemed to be covered in countless networks both inside and outside. Now, the runic network was being guided by the Stone of the Earth's mysterious power and very naturally, it began to form even smaller runic patterns. His body was also absorbing the energy from the Immortal Crystals around him. As the energies surged into his body, they catalyzed the transformation of his heart.

    "With the Stone of the Earth and so many Heaven Earth Essence Crystals, my strength would slowly increase even if I did not cultivate, probably causing me to step into the Godfiend realm in a few decades," thought Qin Yun. "The Connate Godfiend Highwarrior loaned me this Stone of the Earth to cultivate for a hundred years. That shows how highly he thinks of me. He probably hopes I can cultivate to an even higher realm."

    "Previously, without any external help, it would have taken me half a month to comprehend the fourth runic pattern with my Paramount realm insights."

    "And with so much external help... I'll make the breakthrough now!"

    Qin Yun gave a mental command.

    Countless golden runic patterns began to spread all over his heart. Some remained on the surface of his heart while others were buried within. Instantly, a gigantic three-dimensional runic pattern took form!

    His heart was palpitating with the undulating changes.

    Boisterous power surged from the Immortal Crystals constantly into his heart, causing his heart to constantly produce Godfiend blood that spread throughout his body. His body rapidly transformed, metamorphosing from the Mortal realm to the Godfiend realm.

    This transformation was truly a quantum leap in realm.


    With the Immortal Crystals' help, it took just ten minutes for Qin Yun to step into the Godfiend realm. His body's metamorphosis was completed and his soul was rapidly enhanced during the breakthrough. Although the speed had slowed down and required a long period of nurturing, it would still take a month or two to complete the enhancement.

    "Godfiend realm?" On the ten-foot-wide Immortal Crystal, the cross-legged Qin Yun opened his eyes. He extended his hands and gently clenched them.


    When he made a fist, it caused the air around him to gently tremble.

    "No wonder Connate Godfiend descendants employ such crude combat moves. The advantage their bodies have is just too apparent," thought Qin Yun. "I have cultivated for many years and grasped three Paramount realms, and only by giving my all can I produce the final killer move Samsara that can barely reach the might of immortals and fiendcelestials. But now, by entering the Godfiend realm, just my strength alone can match my Samsara flying sword art."

    "Perhaps it is greatly lacking in profundity and would be completely decimated by a flying sword art but if I cultivate in a few more divine powers, my attacks would be a lot more powerful than Samsara. After all, I can only cast Samsara two or three times."

    Qin Yun sighed emotively in secret.


    "Whatever, this is only a world formed by the hundred-years dream."

    "Here, my body and soul's enhancements are all fake. When I wake from my dream, I'll return to my true body." Qin Yun gave a self-deprecating laugh. "Only enlightenment in the Heavenly Dao can be brought back to reality."

    "However, my comprehension will be much faster after the qualitative change in my soul." Qin Yun was delighted.

    He looked at the Stone of the Earth in front of him. "It seems that this Stone of the Earth is the source of the Highwarrior family's bloodline. It's more intricate than the sixth runic pattern! It's no wonder that it is the Spiritual Companion Item of the Connate Godfiend, Highwarrior."

    Although Qin Yun had broken through, he was inside the Fire Phoenix Nest and constantly absorbing energy from the Immortal Crystals, so he did not cause a commotion in the outside world.


    After the breakthrough, Qin Yun was in no hurry to leave. Instead, he continued cultivating.

    The Stone of the Earth was the source of the Highwarrior bloodline and a manifestation of the Dao! However, the Highwarrior bloodline's Dao that it represented was known as the Dao of the land! The 'defense' Paramount realm he comprehended was also a tiny portion of the Dao of the land.

    In a blink of an eye, half a year passed.

    The chamber's stone door opened.

    Qin Yun walked across the surface of the lake, his body's aura was clearly immense.

    "Wing from the Highwarrior family, you are out." The clansman who was responsible for watching the area could not help but yell happily from afar. Following that, he became astonished. "You have reached the Godfiend realm?"

    "Yea, I just broke through," said Qin Yun. However, he was thinking to himself, "If you were to know that I immediately broke through the moment I began my seclusion, you would probably get quite a scare. After all, even the Heavenly Dao intent realm will require about four months to make a breakthrough."

    "I'll inform the Elders." The clansman immediately departed.

    Qin Yun walked onto the bank.

    He saw clansmen paying attention to him from a distance away. They were familiar people. In the past, Wing was a junior at the second Firmament of the Mortal realm and they were obviously very casual with him. But when Qin Yun took over, he reached the third Firmament of the Mortal realm during the coming of age ceremony and then defeated General Yuchang. Now, he had reached the Godfiend realm after a seclusion, making him instantly become an Elder of the Godfiend Temple. His status was now completely different and they did not dare act too casually with him.

    "This strength." Qin Yun felt his body's immense strength as well as the limitations the Heavenly Dao had on him. "I can now sense the limitations the Heavenly Dao has placed on me. If I were to violate them, I'd receive heavenly punishment."

    "But since I'm alive, unless I enter seclusion forever and never make contact with other sentient beings, I will ultimately generate karma and the tribulations will befall me."


    They differed in strength.

    The strong ones could even cause him to die instantly.

    "That's right."

    "In life, there has to be something to fear. Mortals are afraid of influence, experts, and strength. Even those who attain immortality are afraid of the heavens," thought Qin Yun. "If I were to live truly unbridled, I would probably treat countless mortals like ants. I would even engage in war heedlessly, rendering the world asunder. The rules that the heavens created make life better for all living beings."

    As Qin Yun was pondering over the matter, a group of Elders rushed over from afar. Leading them was the black-robed Elder, Firephoenix Youxu.

    Achievement of the Godfiend realm also meant that one was a Godfiend existence. The group of Elders was naturally all Godfiends.

    "Wing." The black-robed Elder Firephoenix Youxu looked at Qin Yun joyfully. "It's awesome that you were able to break through to the Godfiend realm in half a year's time."

    "Our Fire Phoenix City has an additional Godfiend now."

    "Haha. Wing, cultivate well and perhaps you can reach a higher realm in the future."

    All the Elders were rejoicing.

    Every major war would see generations of Godfiends die in battle. As such, every birth of a new Godfiend made them happy. As long as there was no end to the production of Godfiends and future generations became stronger, they would eventually clinch the ultimate victory.

    "Wing, you came here to cultivate after completing the Coming of Age ceremony," said Firephoenix Youxu with a smile. "You haven't taken up a name yet, right?"

    "I've thought of a name," said Qin Yun.

    "You came up a name for yourself? What is it?" All the Elders looked at Qin Yun.

    "Qinyun," said Qin Yun.

    "Qinyun?" The Elders were puzzled. "Highwarrior Qinyun?"

    "Which Qin and which Yun?"

    Everyone pressed for an answer as Qin Yun explained the characters.

    "Highwarrior Qinyun?" Everyone memorized this name.

    "This name is a little odd."

    "I think it's not bad. Your name is Muqi. I think it's worse than Qinyun."

    "As long as he likes it. From this day forth, my Fire Phoenix City will have an additional Godfiend-Highwarrior Qinyun!" The Elders were feeling extremely delighted. As for the name? Names in this world were chosen without much thought. They randomly selected a nickname in their youth. If they reached a dignified status, they would have a surname and a name! Names could take any form. For example, Youxu or Muqi. Even Connate Godfiends had rather random names, such as Firephoenix, Highwarrior, and Heavenshroud.


    From that moment forth, the nickname Wing was history. Highwarrior Qinyun officially took his place on the stage of humanity, becoming one of the many Godfiends in humanity's nine great cities.

    Time passed as Qin Yun continued cultivating in peace after his breakthrough. Nothing major happened in that time. Before he knew it, ten years passed.
