    "By being careful and using your identity as a mortal, I believe you have a fifty percent chance of succeeding," said Ancestral Master Zhang. "But if you were to fail, you must flee as fast as you can. Try your best to escape back to our Great Chang world. If you were to be too slow in your escape, you'd be doomed once the Skyfiends catch up to you!"

    "They would dare to kill a mortal?" asked Qin Yun.

    Ancestral Master Zhang said, "Different worlds have their own Heavenly Dao. In our Great Chang world, you are naturally protected by the Heavenly Dao! But in the Great Chu world... it is a world already ruled by fiendcelestials. The Heavenly Dao there discriminates against you. Once you expose yourself, allowing the Heavenly Dao to detect you, killing you would not have any negative repercussions. In fact, it would be meritorious to them."

    Qin Yun nodded gently as he said with a frown, "Senior Zhang. The Other Realm beast from before was a peak third Firmament Essence Soul realm. However, he successfully disguised himself as Old Master Chu in our Great Chang world. Didn't he manage to completely hide from the heavens and converge his aura? The Heavenly Dao did not discriminate against him in any way," asked Qin Yun.

    "There are indeed Dharmic formulations that allow you to hide from the heavens and conceal your aura." Ancestral Master Zhang nodded. "You are only a mortal so the Heavenly Dao's discrimination against you in the Great Chu world would be very low as well! In addition to any Dharmic formulations that conceal your aura and hide you from the heavens, you can disguise very well... just do not release your Golden Core Dharmic powers! As long as the enemy doesn't do a probe inside your body and notice the purplish-gold Golden Core, you will not be exposed."

    "Even a divine power like the Eye of Lightning can only determine that your aura remains that of a Connate Golden Core, a mortal's aura."

    Qin Yun nodded slightly.

    If he were to disguise himself, he would definitely do a better job than the Other Realm beast.

    The Other Realm beast...

    He was even able to hide from his Dao domain. It was only Qin Yun's Eye of Lightning that discovered the immense aura he possessed!

    As for Qin Yun's aura? He was a Connate Golden Core to begin with! Therefore, no matter how an enemy spied on him, they would not be able to see through Qin Yun.

    Once he was confirmed to be a mortal, the fiendcelestials would definitely believe that he was a native mortal! They would not dare kill him until they determined Qin Yun's true identity.

    "By being careful, you will reduce the chance of exposure greatly, up until the moment you attack the fiendcelestials. Your targets are a peak second Firmament and a third Firmament Essence Soul. You'll definitely have to use your strongest techniques when you kill them," said Ancestral Master Zhang. "That will be when you're most at risk of exposing yourself. Think carefully about going to the Great Chu world."


    Inside the yard.

    Ancestral Master Zhang drank his tea while Qin Yun pondered for a short moment before asking, "If I do not go, do you have other means of obtaining the remaining pieces of the Empyrean Lord Divine Armor?"

    "It's nearly impossible." Ancestral Master Zhang shook his head. "We are at the level of Skyimmortals or Skygods. It's impossible for us to open a spatial passageway to head there directly as we are would be rejected by that world! The burden of a spatial passageway is also extremely large. We can only travel arduously through the Other Realm cosmos to eventually reach the Great Chu world. That was how the Other Realm beast arrived in our Great Chang world! But even if we were to reach that world, it is still a world ruled by fiendcelestials. If we were to snatch their treasures, we would easily expose ourselves in battle. Right in the enemy's territory, with no way to escape directly through a spatial passageway, it's just too difficult to flee. It's too dangerous. It's not worth it for us."

    "In fact, I honestly recommend that you do not go," said Ancestral Master Zhang. "You could always wait to grow stronger. Take another trip to the Ancient Skydragon Palace and you might discover something new."

    Qin Yun shook his head after hearing that. "The Ancient Skydragon Palace only has the ancient Skydragon's corpse left. There were extremely few Numinous treasures in ancient times. Being able to find one is already pretty good. However, I need ten inferior-grade Numinous treasures to save my wife."

    "Furthermore, it's been fifteen years... The only great harvest I had was at Immortal Cloudgrace's cave abode. I have already combed through all available ancient texts. The most apparent clues pointed to Immortal Cloudgrace's cave abode, making it the one I had the greatest confidence in finding. I eventually succeeded because of a bit of luck. There are too few clues about the other treasures. I have already expended every mean at my disposal in the past fifteen years but have failed to find anything. Even if I had another hundred years, I do not have any confidence in finding another treasure trove."

    "Besides, as you know..."

    "Most treasures left by experts in the Great Chang world go to their juniors. There are very few lost artifacts! It's already very rare that I found two. To have the lavish wish of a third treasure trove?" Qin Yun shook his head. "I might as well head to the Great Chu world and risk it. Once I succeed, I would have a medial-grade Numinous treasure."

    Ancestral Master Zhang nodded slightly.

    "And the longer it takes, the more perilous my wife's situation will be." Qin Yun was anxious as he said, "I have to save her as soon as possible."

    Ancestral Master Zhang understood Qin Yun's determination when he looked into his eyes.

    "Alright then. However, before you set off, you need to make adequate preparations," said Ancestral Master Zhang solemnly.

    From Ancestral Master Zhang's point of view, he did not wish for Qin Yun to take such risks.

    After all, there were enemies everywhere in the other world!

    Ancestral Master Zhang, Human Emperor, and the rest wished for Qin Yun to continue living and become stronger for the sake of the Great Chang world. As for the danger Yi Xiao was facing? They did not think too much of it after seeing so much separation caused by life and death.

    However, Qin Yun cared for his wife more than anything!

    Ancestral Master Zhang and company could not stop him from finding her either.


    After deciding on heading to the Great Chu world, Qin Yun flipped the Two World Picture and released the incomplete Grand Magus corpse.

    "Oh?" Ancestral Master Zhang's eyes lit up immediately when he saw the Grand Magus corpse.

    "Senior, what do you think of this corpse?" asked Qin Yun.

    Ancestral Master Zhang went forward and studied it carefully. The corpse's skin had a yellowish-bronze luster to it. With a gentle tap, a wisp of Dharmic powers struck the skin with a gong as though it had struck a bell. Ancestral Master Zhang nodded slightly. "It's indeed a Grand Magus. Unfortunately, it has lost an arm and there's such a huge hole in its chest. There are many wounds as well. Qin Yun, I can only consider this Grand Magus corpse as half an inferior-grade Numinous treasure."

    Qin Yun nodded immediately, "Alright! Then, adding these three treasures..."

    With that said, he took out three items.

    They were the Other Realm beast's Evasion Talisman, the Nine Heavens Cloudrobe he obtained from the Ancient Skydragon Palace, and a transcendent-grade Soul Refining Lock he obtained from the Other Realm Skyfiend.

    "Evasion Talisman, Nine Heavens Cloudrobe, Soul Refining Lock," said Qin Yun. "With these, can I exchange for one inferior-grade Numinous treasure?"

    "Alright." Ancestral Master Zhang smiled with a nod. With a wave of his hand, a halberd suffusing a bloody aura appeared on a stone table. It had an oppressive and potent aura. "This inferior-grade Numinous treasure's name is Space-shattering Halberd."

    Qin Yun picked it up.

    Now, he had three inferior-grade Numinous treasures-Cosmic Bangles, Heart Stirring Bell, and Space-shattering Halberd.

    Trying to amass one superior-grade Numinous treasure was just too difficult.

    "I'll discuss the matter of you traveling to the Great Chu world with Old Bai, Human Emperor, and Mahākāśyapa. We will come up with a complete plan for you," said Ancestral Master Zhang as he stood up. "We will do what we can to ensure you have the highest chance of returning alive."

    "Thank you, Senior Zhang." Qin Yun stood up immediately.

    "Once your strength improves a little more, you will be at the Skyimmortal level," said Ancestral Master Zhang. "You are very important to the Great Chang world. Therefore, remember, be careful and alert. Stay in my Divine Firmament Chapter for the next few days."

    "Alright," Qin Yun answered immediately.

    Ancestral Master Zhang quickly arranged for Qin Yun's stay.


    Ancestral Master Zhang discussed the matter with Human Emperor, Bodhisattva Mahākāśyapa, and Patriarch Bai. In the Great Chang world, the four of them shared a relatively close relationship. Next was Palatial Lord Skydemon before East Sea Skydemon Palace! This was because the dragons could relocate the moment they realized that something was amiss.

    "Qin Yun wishes to head for the Great Chu world? Brother Zhang, why didn't you stop him?" asked Human Emperor through a voice transmission.

    "Knowing Qin Yun's personality, Daoist Divine Firmament was probably unable to stop him," said Bodhisattva Mahākāśyapa.

    "You will know when you see him. There's no way to stop him!" said Ancestral Master Zhang.

    "Qin Yun has merit on him. In addition, he is very alert to begin with. He should be able to return alive," said Patriarch Bai.

    "Let's quickly draw up a plan," said Ancestral Master Zhang. "I'm thinking of a Dharmic formulation that hides him from the heavens. Mahākāśyapa, prepare to teach that to Qin Yun. As for a Dharmic formulation that conceals and transforms auras... Old Bai, that's on you! Human Emperor, I'll leave the means to disguise Qin Yun as one of the fiendcelestial lineages to you. As for the rest, leave it to me. What do you think?"



    "It's decided. We shall meet at my Divine Firmament Chapter three days later."

    Everyone quickly made a decision.

    The four of them were humans. And according to the speed at which Qin Yun was growing, his strength would soon approach theirs. They naturally did their best to help.

    It was only because they were united that humans managed to enjoy the present.
