    Qin Yun and Yi Xiao made their bodies incorporeal as they circled around the gray mountain a few times to probe it carefully.

    "Brother Yun, no matter how I look at it, it looks like a Stellar Stone ," observed Yi Xiao. "But Stellar Stones have never been this big."

    "Normally, Stellar Stones would indeed range from thirty to fifty feet long." Qin Yun nodded. "But there have been accounts in the Three Realms' history of ones that can be the size of a mountain. I just never expected to discover it myself. Furthermore, it's in my homeworld."

    "According to the records of Connate Wonders, a fifty-foot-long Stellar Stone would be equivalent to an ordinary Connate Numinous treasure. How much is it worth if it's a thousand feet?" Yi Xiao found it unbelievable.

    Qin Yun nodded slightly. "In terms of value, it probably approaches that of a Connate Cardinal treasure. Of course, it is still slightly inferior to that."

    Connate Cardinal treasure were truly priceless treasures.

    Ancient existences at the perfected Great Dao level could easily become the lord of a Great World. Over long periods of time, the number of treasures that came into their possession was sizable as well, but even most of them did not have Connate Cardinal treasures!

    All the Heavenly Lord of Numinous Treasure did was lend the Qingping Sword to Qin Yun.

    For instance, Daoist Burning Lamp had obtained the the twenty-four Sea Calming Beads and later, he became a Buddhist, and through it, conjured the twenty-four heavens to attain a perfected Great Dao.

    Connate Cardinal treasures represented a perfected Great Dao. They represented potent power!

    Over such a prize, master and disciples, brothers, and good friends could fall out!

    Only the Heavenly Lord of Numinous Treasure's status gave him the courage to lend a Connate Cardinal treasure to his disciple.

    "Although I cannot use a thousand-foot-long Stellar Stone to exchange for a Connate Cardinal treasure, it should not be difficult to exchange for several Connate Pinnacle Numinous treasures." Qin Yun looked at the Stellar Stone in front of him and sighed. "No wonder. It's no wonder Patriarch Bojia went mad for it... As one of the patriarchs of the nine clans of the fiends, all his treasures combined might not even compare to this thousand-foot-long Stellar Stone despite his potential sizable wealth."

    "A man's wealth is his own ruin by causing other's greed," said Yi Xiao. "In the Great Chang world hides a Stellar Stone. Patriarch Bojia must be eyeing this. Even if Patriarch Bojia does not take action, the other Ancestral Fiends will not sit idle once they learn of this secret."

    "Yea." Qin Yun nodded.

    "However, it's good news for you, Brother Yun." Yi Xiao's eyes lit up. "In the next ten thousand years, you will need to continuously consume Samsara Dew for cultivation. The amount you need is so much that even a Connate Pinnacle Numinous treasure or two is not enough. But now, you have this Stellar Stone mountain."

    "It's indeed a great opportunity for me. It will also be my biggest asset." Qin Yun nodded. Although the Qingping Sword was more precious, it was only a temporary loan from his master. "Xiaoxiao, wait here while I slowly extract this Stellar Stone."

    "There's definitely no way of extracting it entirely. The Stellar Stone is the foundation of an entire world. Its connected to the entire world. If it's extracted fully, the entire world would be destroyed as a result," warned Yi Xiao.

    "Don't worry." Qin Yun smiled. "I will never allow anything untoward to happen to the Great Chang world."

    Yi Xiao stood by the side watching. It was easy for her to remain unscathed by the magma by maintaining a Dharma spell. Many mortal cultivators were able to cast the Wall Passing Spell after all.

    "Brother Yun, how are you to extract such a robust Stellar Stone?" asked Yi Xiao.

    For the fiends, as long as they converted it into a fiendish world, the world would pose no obstruction. They would easily be able to extract it. The fiends did not care if a Small World were to end up destroyed.

    However, Qin Yun could not do the same.

    "Split."

    Qin Yun extended his hand as a blurry flying sword floated in the middle of his palm. It was none other than his Intrinsic Flying Sword, the Misty Rain Sword.

    The blurry sword began splitting into three layers! They stacked vertically... One flying sword had split into three!

    "Brother Yun, your Intrinsic Flying Sword..." Yi Xiao was alarmed.

    "After the Misty Rain Sword was nurtured to become a Connate Pinnacle Numinous treasure, it gained the ability to split into three. They are the three swords of Heaven, Earth, and Man," explained Qin Yun.

    The three flying swords-

    One sword was ethereal and vast. It was the Heaven Sword.

    One sword was heavy and similarly boundless. It was the Earth Sword.

    One sword was brimming with vitality. It was the Man Sword.

    Elder Sword, who was only at the Connate Golden Core realm, had managed to nurture his Intrinsic Flying Sword to split it into seven. And Qin Yun's Misty Rain Sword's Sword Dao was at a higher level. Once it became a Great Dao, it was a pinnacle Great Dao! However, his flying sword could split into three only after it was nurtured into a Connate Pinnacle Numinous treasure.

    "Go." With a thought from Qin Yun, the three flying swords flew in different directions and circled around the Stellar Stone.

    "Misty Rain Sword Array. Arise!" Qin Yun controlled his Intrinsic Flying Sword.

    As an Intrinsic Connate Pinnacle Numinous treasure which was also augmented by great merit, it was at its strongest the moment it split into three to form the Misty Rain Sword Array!

    Inside the sword array.

    The powers of Heaven, Earth, and Man interlocked, faintly forming a destructive might that could reduce everything back to Chaos.

    Wisps of Sword Qi tore and ground.

    Even though the Connate Wonder was extremely robust, it was still rapidly sliced up like it was an apple. The Stellar Stone was carved into pieces rapidly!

    The Stellar Stone was unable to resist the Misty Rain Sword Array.

    It was constantly shrinking in size while Qin Yun used his sense to detect the connection it had with the Great Chang world. Moments later, the Stellar Stone mountain had been sliced to the size of a sphere about ten feet across. This sphere alone was still connected to the Great Chang world.

    "Retrieve." Qin Yun flipped his hand and stored the sliced Stellar Stone. Then, he stared at the remaining Stellar Stone sphere.

    "A fifty-foot-long Stellar Stone can match an ordinary Connate Numinous treasure at the most. And if it's just ten feet? It's nothing worth mentioning for mighty figures." Qin Yun immediately threw out eighteen array flags and set up an array formation. They completely protected the Stellar Stone and made Qin Yun satisfied with its current state.

    Yi Xiao flew to Qin Yun's side and looked suspicious. "This array formation..."

    Qin Yun smiled. "It's to prevent any idiot from taking the final bit of Stellar Stone away and destroying the Great Chang world. It's best to protect it with an array formation and later, use this array formation to fuse with the other array formations of the Great Chang world! Even if Star Destruction is revived, he can forget about breaking through it. Xiaoxiao, go back and make some preparations. Once I finish setting up the Great Chang world's array formations, we will be moving."

    "Brother Yun, you are finally going to have an Essence Soul breakthrough? I've been waiting for more than two centuries." Yi Xiao was overjoyed.

    ...

    Qin Yun originally had the plans to fortify the Great Chang world before he had a breakthrough with his Essence Soul.

    After all, once he left, he could no longer enter his homeworld again with his true body.

    And now that he had obtained copious amounts of Stellar Stone from his homeworld, Qin Yun was naturally more meticulous in setting up the array formations.

    "Boom! Boom! Boom!"

    Following that, three ten-thousand-feet tall array mountains descended into the East Sea, stirring up huge waves in the sea.

    Qin Yun was setting up the array formation in midair.

    "Qin Yun." A figure tore across the void. It was none other than Ancestral Master Zhang. He looked at the scene in astonishment. "How many treasures did you prepare for this array formation?"

    "I did destroy twenty-six garrisons of the fiends previously," said Qin Yun with a smile. "Every garrison was made impregnable by the fiends! I am the only one who could tear open spatial passageways to arrive within the array formations, making them useless. That allowed my easy destruction of their hives... If not, how could the twenty-six garrisons be so easily destroyed?

    "Those garrisons were all dismantled by me. I kept almost all of the numerous array formations that guarded them," said Qin Yun. "I chose twelve array formations out of those from the twenty-six garrisons which could work in tandem perfectly and prepared to set them up."

    "Qin Yun."

    Ancestral Master Zhang could not help but say, "I previously sensed that you set up three array formations. Each one of them was impressive. You are now setting up another twelve? All of these added up can match three or four Connate Numinous treasures. You became an Itinerant Immortal because of the Great Chang world. Your Essence Soul hasn't broken through for more than two centuries. You have already sacrificed enough. You need treasures to cultivate now. There's no need to do this."

    "I have also obtained a lot from the Great Chang world," said Qin Yun. "Patriarch Bojia and company were constantly attempting to conquer our Great Chang world because of a treasure it possesses. I have already found the treasure. It's worth far more than what I'm sacrificing!"

    "What you have sacrificed is not only limited to treasures. There is also your Skyimmortal and Golden Immortal path, and time that cannot be regained," said Ancestral Master Zhang with a sigh. "Whatever. It's pointless talking about it. For you to begin setting up the array formations, does it mean you finally plan to have your Essence Soul break through?"

    "I'll break through once I'm done setting up." Qin Yun nodded.

    "Are you not going to return once you leave?" Ancestral Master Zhang felt a little conflicted.

    He had watched Qin Yun's rise to prominence.

    He had even owed Qin Yun greatly. The opportunity to enter Lightning Beast Manor was all thanks to Qin Yun. He had yet to return the favor.

    "In the future, the Great Chang world will depend on you, Brother Zhang," said Qin Yun with a smile.

    "Rest assured." Ancestral Master Zhang nodded. "Cultivate with peace of mind."

    Ten thousand plus years later...

    Would Qin Yun really create another miracle? Or would he be reduced to dust under the Itinerant Immortal tribulations?

    ...

    Qin Yun was now extremely powerful. In just a day, he had set up the twelve array formations. Their potency was much stronger than any of the twenty-six fiendish hives. They were even able to conjure the universe's stellar forces and convert them into the Heaven Earth Essence Qi for the Great Chang world. A Small World's Heaven Earth Essence Qi would slowly thin with time, but the Great Chang world was able to convert stellar forces, allowing it to remain perpetually powerful.

    "Boom." The twelve array formations fused into one as surging stellar forces descended from the cosmos. The Heaven and Earth spiritual energies also began turning richer.

    Qin Yun stood in midair watching all of this.

    Yi Xiao also appeared by his side and smiled at him. "Brother Yun, are you ready?"

    "I just have to do one final thing," said Qin Yun.

    Yi Xiao was puzzled.

    "Make the fiends give up." Qin Yun smiled.

    ...

    In a dark hall in the Tenebrous Fiend Abyss's Bojia Palace.

    Patriarch Bojia sat cross-legged in cultivation.

    "Patriarch Bojia." A voice reached him through shared karma.

    "Oh?" Bojia's eyes on his four faces opened simultaneously. "Qin Yun?"

    He too could sense Qin Yun in the distant Great Chang world through their karmic ties.

    "The Great Chang world's secret is the Stellar Stone, right?"

    The voice continued resounding in Bojia's ears.

    Bojia's expression changed instantly as he pressed hurriedly through the karmic voice transmission. "Did you excavate the thousand-foot-long Stellar Stone?"

    "What do you think?" The voice had a hint of mockery.
