Chapter 730: Difficulty Reduction
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The Divine Sacred Hall was really huge and intimidating.
From the outside, the Divine Sacred Hall and the Divine Martial Hall didn't seem to have many differences. Luo Yunyang believed that the procedure after entering it would be similar to the Divine Martial Hall, yet the situation he faced was very different.
Although he had thought that it would be just like the Divine Martial Hall, the smart voice that operated the Divine Martial Hall didn't speak.
The huge Divine Sacred Palace was devoid of sound.
However, Deep Profound Zongzi's expression was calm, as if everything within the Divine Sacred Hall was under his control.
“Although the opportunity at the Divine Sacred Hall is great, there is also considerable danger. If we aren't careful, we may end up falling here.” Deep Profound Zongzi's gaze was on Luo Yunyang when he said that.
“Disciple Yunyang defeated Lu Fengjie, so he is the strongest after the three of us. This time, we will have Junior Brother Yunyang enter the 13th floor first.”
Sky Origin grinned slightly when he heard Profound Calm's words.
He was aware of the situation in the Divine Sacred Hall. Every level would contain a different treasure!
The 13th floor was the most dangerous floor, but it was also the place with the most treasures. Although Profound Calm's choice wasn't wrong, normally, the person going in first was used to clear the path.
Although those behind would a.s.sist him, the person clearing the path would still be in great danger. If the people behind weren't able to save the first person in time, they would fall immediately.
Luo Yunyang glanced at the still Profound Calm Zongzi. Although he had entered the Divine Martial Hall, he still understood too little about it and didn't know which path to take.
He only knew that the arrangement between Profound Calm Zongzi and Sky Origin Zongzi wouldn't be ordinary. Profound Calm definitely wouldn't try to help him.
While he had these thoughts, Luo Yunyang looked at Wise Elegant Zongzi. Although he had never interacted with Wise Elegant Zongzi before, his gut told him that the relationship between Wise Elegant Zongzi and Profound Calm Zongzi wasn't very good.
Wise Elegant gave him an unrevealing smile in return.
A smile could mean different things in different situations. Now, Wise Elegant Zongzi's smile was telling Luo Yunyang to be careful.
Luo Yunyang looked at Profound Calm Zongzi and said with a faint smile, “Zongzi, I still don't really understand the situation in the Divine Sacred Hall too well. Shouldn't Zongzi explain a little to help me understand more about the Divine Sacred Hall?”
“That can be arranged.” Profound Calm Zongzi didn't have much of a reaction to Luo Yunyang's words. He tapped his finger and a pure white-jade piece flew towards Luo Yunyang.
Information about the Divine Sacred Hall quickly flooded Luo Yunyang's mind. Luo Yunyang frowned a little when he saw these records.
According to the records within the piece of jade, his fate would be rather miserable compared to his fate in the Divine Martial Hall.
The Divine Martial Hall had a system that let it operate according to its own will, but the Divine Sacred Hall operated according to the rules set by the Almighties.
According to the information Profound Calm Zongzi gave Luo Yunyang, the Divine Sacred Hall hadn't originally been in the Pure Sun Great Cosmos. It had been forcibly seized from a smaller cosmos and brought to the Pure Sun Great Cosmos by a few top Heavenly Venerates.
For the sake of training their disciples, these Heavenly Venerates had made the Divine Sacred Hall a training ground.
The treasures inside were more than the treasures the Divine Sacred Hall had originally had. However, what attracted people the most was still the inheritance within the Divine Sacred Hall.
A few Heavenly Venerates had originally wanted to forcibly extract this inheritance, but they had discovered that there was a self-destructive function within the Divine Sacred Hall.
Once the last inheritance of the Divine Sacred Hall was forcibly taken out, then the Divine Sacred Hall might no longer exist.
Therefore, those top Heavenly Venerates could only give up on the idea of forcibly extracting the inheritance and just amend some small rules.
Amongst these amended rules was a three-person subst.i.tution technique.
This so-called three-person subst.i.tution meant that three people could try and break through the 13th hall of the Divine Sacred Hall.
Thus, when a person found it difficult to progress, they could still make a subst.i.tution. This method implied that the last person who broke through the Divine Sacred Hall's obstacles would receive the inheritance.
Luo Yunyang felt somewhat irritated when he saw this rule. The three-person subst.i.tution technique meant that the third person would gain from the sacrifices of the first two.
“Disciple Yunyang, the path to the Divine Sacred Hall's inheritance is extremely arduous. Over 1,000 years have pa.s.sed since the Divine Sacred Hall was seized by the Heavenly Venerates, but no one has been able to obtain the inheritance inside.”
Profound Calm Zongzi added, “The sect remains of paramount importance during our trip here. We have to make an all-out effort and stay united.”
Luo Yunyang cursed silently. Although Profound Calm Zongzi spoke like a wise ruler, his intent was very clear. He could have just said that everyone would be his stepping stone and they should just hurry up and provide for the high and mighty Zongzi!
Although Luo Yunyang felt inwardly disdainful, he still smiled mildly. “Senior Brother, looks like this opportunity will be yours!”
He then paused for a bit. “Could the inheritance of the Divine Sacred Hall be really impressive? Is that why not a single person has managed to get it during all these years?”
Luo Yunyang had broken through and completed the Divine Martial Hall. Although the Divine Martial Hall had been really sick, he had still completed it in the end.
There were many martialists in the Pure Sun Great Cosmos with cultivation bases that far surpa.s.sed his. How could no one have broken through and completed it?
“When those Heavenly Venerates seized the Divine Sacred Hall, they used their own methods to modify the Divine Sacred Hall. However, their methods also increased the difficulty of the various challenges and trials in the Divine Sacred Hall to a disgusting level.”
Wise Elegant Zongzi smiled faintly as he said this. “However, this time, the entire Three Era Supreme Sect will be joining forces. We should be able to break through the very end of the Divine Sacred Hall and obtain the inheritance.”
Obtaining the Divine Sacred Hall's inheritance was naturally a good thing. However, only a fool would be willing to do all this work to let someone else benefit from it.
Luo Yunyang wasn't willing to do so, but if he objected, then his status within the Three Era Supreme Sect, which he had worked so hard to obtain, would be in danger.
With that in mind, Luo Yunyang made a decision. The Divine Sacred Hall's inheritance couldn't fall into someone else's hands. He would even use some of the powers of his Heavenly Venerate True Body to ensure that he obtained it.
Although the idea of the three-person subst.i.tution technique was good, Luo Yunyang was set on completing this whole thing on his own.
“Luo Yunyang, you wouldn't be unwilling to go first, would you?” Sky Origin Zongzi smirked. “If you behave like this, don't blame me for not being nice and using the authority bestowed upon the Zongzis by the elders.”
“Why would I? I'm so stoked that I can't wait!” Luo Yunyang chuckled before telling Profound Calm Zongzi, “Senior Brother Profound Caln, I will go and try it out first. Just sit tight and wait for the good news!”
Profound Calm Zongzi smiled. “Since you have said that, we will just have to trouble you, Junior Brother. You have to give your all and make the Three Era Supreme Sect proud.”
Although he said this rather calmly, there was a slightly sinister hint to his voice. Luo Yunyang detected a threat behind his words.
Give your all!
Even if Profound Calm Zongzi hadn't said that, Luo Yunyang would have been prepared to give his all. He immediately chuckled. “Rest a.s.sured, Senior Brother. I will strive with the utmost effort.”
As he said this, a pa.s.sage appeared in front of Luo Yunyang. Luo Yunyang, who had experienced the Divine Martial Hall, took flight and entered this pa.s.sage.
“Junior Brother Yunyang, according to our sect's predecessors, over 100 powerhouses of a similar rank exist in this hall. You must defeat at least 20,” Profound Calm Zongzi said in an unquestionable tone.
Defeat 20? What exactly was going on in the Divine Sacred Hall? With that thought in mind, Luo Yunyang stepped into the last hall of the Divine Sacred Hall.
As he walked into the last hall of the Divine Sacred Hall, a voice spoke in his mind. “Respected Heavenly Martialist, welcome to the Divine Sacred Hall.”
Upon hearing this, Luo Yunyang felt as though he had entered the Divine Martial Hall. While he was surprised, that voice continued speaking. “Respected Heavenly Martialist. You have already obtained the t.i.tle of Heavenly Martialist, so the difficulty will be reduced by 30%.”
The difficulty would be reduced by 30%!
Luo Yunyang was delighted. He had been thinking about how to conceal the power of his Heavenly Venerate True Body best, yet he had never imagined that such a thing would actually happen.
This really surprised and delighted him.
“There will be a difficulty reduction of 30% under ordinary circ.u.mstances!” Then, the voice added, “I wish you success, Heavenly Martialist.”
According to Luo Yunyang's understanding, the ordinary circ.u.mstances there should be similar to the circ.u.mstances in the Divine Martial Hall. If there was a difficulty reduction of 30% here, then one could imagine how difficult it would be.
As Luo Yunyang entered the last hall, Sky Origin Zongzi nodded at Profound Calm Zongzi.
Profound Calm Zongzi smiled. Although he didn't open his mouth to speak, his voice was heard in Sky Origin Zongzi's ear. “Sky Origin, although this brat will experience considerable shock, the possibility of him dying inside isn't high. You must prepare well. I will let you go through the second stage.”
“Zongzi, I'm afraid there is some…” Sky Origin Zongzi didn't really want to reply to this request.
However, before he was finished, Profound Calm Zongzi said sternly. “Even though you are a Zongzi, you can't relax when it comes to increasing your power. Otherwise, you won't get more challenges like this in the future. I will find it hard to protect you time after time!”
