    Chapter 576: Essence Soul Breakthrough

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    After passing on the message to make Patriarch Bojia abandon his hopes of obtaining the Stellar Stone, Qin Yun ignored Bojia.

    As for Bojia, he was infuriated.

    "Qin Yun!"

    Bojia's Dharmic powers exploded in every direction and struck the palace walls. It caused the sealed hall to rumble loudly, down to its internal structure.

    "My Stellar Stone, it's mine!" Bojia was incensed and sad over his loss. What was a massive treasure that seemed always within reach, right in front of him, was now gone! For this, he had lost Fiend Supremacy Black Wing and his Connate Numinous treasure, the Great Yin Disk. However, those losses did not make him lose heart. He always believed that Qin Yun would soon leave the Small World. As long as the secret of the Stellar Stone did not leak, he still had a high chance of obtaining it.

    But now, it was all for naught!

    "How did he discover it?

    "The area beneath the Great Chang world is so massive. Even if he burrowed underground, it should have been nearly impossible to find a thousand-foot-long Stellar Stone with only his eyes!" Bojia fumed. "Besides, without having some kind of clue about the Stellar Stone, he would not have wasted his valuable time scouring the area bit by bit.

    "But he still discovered it.

    "Is this because of the light that shines on him from providence?"

    Bojia muttered to himself. "The light from providence shines on him and he has great merit. It allows him to turn calamities into blessings, making it easier for him to find treasures."

    Although Qin Yun had injected the massive amounts of merit into his Intrinsic Flying Sword, just an ordinary Merit Numinous treasure would enhance the amount of light that shone on him from providence, let alone his Intrinsic Flying Sword. Any faction that had a Merit Numinous treasure was able to ensure the light from providence would continue to come down. Clearly, Qin Yun enjoyed both the light and merit!

    With the light from providence, one could pick up treasures simply while walking along the road. It was completely possible that he just got lucky and found the Stellar Stone by chance.

    "What's the point of keeping Kuifu then?" Bojia looked into the distance and penetrated the spatial obstructions. He saw Kuifu under house arrest in a corner of the Bojia Palace. No one was permitted to interact with him.

    The fuming Bojia even wished to squash Kuifu to death in that moment.

    "No."

    Bojia narrowed his eyes. "He has a grudge with Qin Yun. Qin Yun would also wish him dead! Keeping him alive might still be beneficial."

    ******

    Great Chang world, Grand Dominance City's Qin Manor. Inside a pavilion.

    "Xiaoxiao, look at this." Qin Yun unfurled a scroll. It was very long and it had scenes of the various zones in the Heavenly realm. "This is a record of the various scenic places in the Heavenly realm."

    Yi Xiao's eyes lit up. The scroll was a Dharma treasure and the visual depicted on it felt like a world itself. Looking at the scroll made her feel like she was looking at the Heavenly realm.

    "Help choose one carefully. We will be moving to the Heavenly realm and staying there," said Qin Yun with a smile.

    "We should be careful in our selection of the place we move to." Yi Xiao looked carefully.

    "You can take your time making a selection. There's no hurry," said Qin Yun.

    "When are you letting your Essence Soul break through?" asked Yi Xiao.

    "I'll be heading to the Green Touring Palace first and will break through there," said Qin Yun. "I'll stay in the Green Touring Palace for some time."

    "Make the breakthrough as soon as possible," urged Yi Xiao.

    Qin Yun nodded with a smile. He immediately left his avatar behind and headed for Green Touring Palace.

    This departure also marked the moment that his true body would never be able to step foot into the Great Chang world again.

    ...

    Green Touring Palace, inside Qin Yun's cave abode.

    After attaining a pinnacle Great Dao, Qin Yun also obtained a cave abode in Green Touring Palace. Green Touring Palace disciples who had yet to attain a Great Dao could only reside in small yards. As for those that attained a Great Dao, they would be provided with cave abodes.

    "It's time to break through." Qin Yun sat cross-legged by the side of a tiny lake in his cave abode. There were lotus flowers floating in the lake and a few fishes swimming in it.

    With a thought, his Essence Soul began its breakthrough. Qin Yun's body emitted blinding light.

    His Essence Soul Dharmic powers and Sword Dao fused, rapidly transforming his Essence Soul. It went from the pinnacle Skyimmortal level to the pinnacle Golden Immortal level! As he was unrestricted by a body, the strength of his Essence Soul was completely determined by the Dao he had attained.

    Every wisp of his Essence Soul Dharmic powers was like a flying sword, pure, sharp and indomitable.

    "Boom! Boom! Boom!"

    Large amounts of Heaven Earth Essence Qi surged into the cave abode and into his body.

    With his Essence Soul breaking through, his Dharmic powers also gained some heft. It naturally absorbed Heaven Earth Essence Qi fervently. Green Touring Palace was able to easily redirect large amounts of Heaven Earth Essence Qi over. It did not cause much of a stir. This was also the reason why Qin Yun had chosen the Green Touring Palace as the location for his breakthrough. He could keep a low profile by secretly making a breakthrough since he had another important task to take care of.

    In just five minutes, Qin Yun felt that his pinnacle Golden Immortal-leveled Essence Soul was 'satiated.'

    "A pinnacle Golden Immortal-leveled Essence Soul is so much stronger than anything I had previously." Qin Yun felt somewhat wistful.

    Before he transcended the tribulations to become an Itinerant Immortal, he was at the Essence Soul realm.

    The Essence Soul... was considered the beginnings of cultivation in the Three Realms. As for the Connate realm, it was only considered as a mortal regime.

    Above the Essence Soul realm were the nine firmaments of the Skyimmortal realm.

    Further up was that of mighty figures!

    Golden Immortals! Buddhas! Sagedemons! Ancestral Dragons! These were all mighty figures.

    Qin Yun's present Essence Soul was at the pinnacle Golden Immortal level. As a result, his thought processes were a lot faster than when he was in the Essence Soul realm. His enlightenment also became hundreds of times faster. This was also why the Dao Ancestor, the Heavenly Lord of Numinous Treasure, urged Qin Yun to break through his Essence Soul as soon as possible. Only after the breakthrough would Qin Yun have a chance at attaining a perfected Great Dao!

    "Boom." Qin Yun stretched out his hand as a blurry flying sword appeared. Following that, the gray sword split into three and floated at the same level in front of him.

    "When powered with pinnacle Golden Immortal Dharmic powers, its might has increased several times as well." Qin Yun nodded slightly. With a flip of his hand, he put away his Intrinsic Flying Sword.

    Following that, he pulled the Qingping Sword from his back.

    He held the scabbard with one hand and pulled the sword out with another.

    Schwing. The Qingping Sword was slightly unsheathed as Dharmic powers poured into it. A terrifying might was brewing within that lifted Qin Yun's brows.

    "As expected of a Connate Cardinal treasure." Qin Yun was secretly alarmed. "My Intrinsic Connate Pinnacle Numinous treasure is augmented with merit. As my Intrinsic Flying Sword, I can produce sufficient might with it, but it is inferior when it comes to the mystical aspect.

    Using his Intrinsic Connate Pinnacle Numinous treasure produced similar might as a Connate Cardinal treasure.

    However, the mystical element contained within was different.

    A Connate Cardinal treasure contained a perfected Great Dao within!

    "Now that my Essence Soul has broken through, giving me a great increase in Dharmic powers, both my Intrinsic Flying Sword and the Qingping Sword will be able to produce even more potent might." Qin Yun nodded slightly. "This way, I'll have the confidence to head into the fiendish dominion."

    "I owe karma because of my gains in the Lightning Beast Manor.

    "I agreed to kill Ancestral Fiend Moxiu once I attained the strength of a pinnacle Golden Immortal.

    "In the past two centuries, I have been studying the Dao of the Heavenly Cycles... I kept feeling the influence of that karma. Its effects were relatively low only because of the great merit I have. However, if I don't kill Moxiu, I will be affected constantly for the next ten thousand years." Qin Yun frowned slightly. "I have to sever this karma.

    "Ancestral Fiend Moxiu is very weak. He's only an ordinary Ancestral Fiend. If I were to fight him head on, I'd be able to easily crush him to death.

    "However, he is an Ancestral Fiend of the Mental Demon lineage... He will not fight me head on."

    Qin Yun was acutely aware of this point.

    Back in the ninth level of the Myriad Dharma Repository, he had read through many secrets of the Three Realms. There, he gained a deeper understanding of the Ancestral Fiends from the Mental Demon lineage.

    The Mental Demon lineage was the most unfathomable lineage among the fiends. This lineage had a total of three Ancestral Fiends. One of them was Patriarch Mental Demon! He was at the pinnacle Ancestral Fiend level, and as the existence that created the Mental Demon lineage, the difficulty of fighting him was that of fighting a perfected Great Dao expert even though his strength in actual combat was weak. The other two Ancestral Fiends were only at the ordinary Ancestral Fiend level.

    Moxiu, who Qin Yun needed to kill, was one of the two.

    "Time to leave." Qin Yun did not take the Qingping Sword. Instead, he put it away temporarily. Following that, he left the Green Touring Palace and headed for the Effulgent Great World.

    ******

    Effulgent Great World.

    Qin Yun stood on the peak of a beautiful mountain peak.

    "Ancestral Fiend Moxiu."

    "Ancestral Fiends of the Mental Demon lineage are the best at concealment. Even the other Ancestral Fiends do not know where his true body is," thought Qin Yun. "They are good at hiding from the heavens... However, I have gained insight into a pinnacle Great Dao and the Seven Stars Art. I can similarly infer the secrets of the heavens."

    As Qin Yun probed through karma itself, he inferred with his fingers.

    Through a karmic line, he discovered that Moxiu was hiding south of the Wind Encasement Great World in the fiendish dominion. But how big was a Great World? Just a vague determination of a zone was useless.

    Since Moxiu's cave abode palace was in the Wind Encasement Great World, it was only normal that his true body was in that Great World.

    "Oh?"

    Qin Yun continued inferring with his fingers.

    To infer the secrets of the heavens using various elements might appear complex and confusing, but an expert could easily see the futures of various weaklings in the river of time. And for Qin Yun, who was good at inference, coupled with the numerous elements, he was able to tear through the layers of confusion and see the truth.

    One side was hiding from the heavens, while the other side was tearing through the mists of confusion! This was also a form of combat.

    Of course, the one hiding was having an easier time! Tearing through the mists of confusion was a lot more difficult.

    Qin Yun's Seven Stars Art was specially meant for inference. It had reached the mighty figure level, and he was an existence with a pinnacle Great Dao. However, despite all of that and his powerful Essence Soul, he was still unable to fully spy on Moxiu's true body.

    "I can only gauge that Moxiu's true body is hidden in the south of the Wind Encasement Great World, in a region that spans fifteen thousand kilometers." Qin Yun frowned slightly. "As expected of a Mental Demon Ancestral Fiend. It exists in both reality and fantasy. Its means of hiding from the heavens are indeed formidable. But you won't be able to escape."

    Qin Yun had an idea after some thought.

    He immediately took a step and tore through space-time, crossing over distances that separated dominions while heading for the Wind Encasement Great World.

    The Three Realms had been naturally split into sixty dominions due to space-time. Among them, ten dominions were completely occupied by the fiends! The fiends naturally stationed immense forces to defend these dominions.

    Qin Yun went from one Great World to another on his journey. He did not dare enter the cosmos, afraid that the Fiend Ancestor would take action. The Fiend Ancestor's powers made him unable to enter a Great World or Small World. However, in starry space... the Fiend Ancestor could sneak up on him at any time. Two hundred plus years ago, the Fiend Ancestor had attempted to sneak up on that monkey while Qin Yun was sweeping through the twenty-six dominions.

    Since he had crossed the Fiend Ancestor, the Fiend Ancestor would probably attack him the moment he was given a chance.

    Therefore...

    Unless he was given word by his master, the Heavenly Lord of Numinous Treasure, Qin Yun would not dare step into space recklessly.

    ...

    In the Wind Encasement dominion's Wind Encasement Great World.

    A gray-robed youth with silver hair appeared.

    "I've change my looks and hidden myself from the heavens. Even if I were to stand in front of Moxiu, he would not be able to recognize me." Qin Yun stood high in the sky and looked around him.
