Chapter 1858: The Yin Mountains of Sevens Despair

"You really must be joking, your majesty. The Empyrean Demon Cult is so powerful that even those who stand at the peak of an entire plane fear them slightly. If the Empyrean Demon Cult really does come to cause trouble, what can I do with just my own strength, let alone stop them?" Jian Chen smiled bitterly.

The divine king shook his head gently, "The Empyrean Demon Cult really is powerful, far beyond what we, the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian, can handle. However, you don't need to worry, Jian Chen. When the ninth army of the Empyrean Demon Cult attacked the Divine Kingdom of Three Cauldrons, they already raised the attention of those ancient empires in the southern region. Even the supreme ruler of the southern region, the eternal Blood Sun Empire, is paying attention to the situation of the Divine Kingdom of Three Cauldrons at all times. If the Empyrean Demon Cult continues to advance so mindlessly, those large organisations and sects in the southern region will grow impatient. They will definitely stand forward to stop them."

"Is your majesty trying to say that the empires will assist the Divine Kingdom of Three Cauldrons in fending off the Empyrean Demon Cult?" Jian Chen asked. He cared about the matter dearly.

He did not care about the survival of the Divine Kingdom of Three Cauldrons. Instead, he cared about whether there would be anyone who would do something about the Empyrean Demon Cult's unbridled behavior.

This was important to him, as it would directly affect what he would choose to do when he came in contact with the cult in the future.

"The Divine Kingdom of Three Cauldrons is bordering on destruction. Although they have three Godkings, even if they work together, they aren't the opponents of the ninth army. If nothing out of the ordinary happens, the Divine Kingdom of Three Cauldrons will be wiped off the map of the Cloud Plane before long."

"However, the Empyrean Demon Cult attacking the Divine Kingdom of Three Cauldrons is the limit of what the empires in the region can accept. If the Empyrean Demon Cult is bold enough to attack the Divine Kingdom of Nine Stars or even our Divine Kingdom of Pingtian, the empires will definitely stand forward to stop them. They would never just watch the Empyrean Demon Cult swell in power while doing nothing. As a result, there's no reason to fear the cult right now," the divine king said calmly. He spoke without any particular emotion, making him seem calm and composed.

Afterwards, he stared at Jian Chen deeply and continued, "As a result, when you come across people from the cult, you won't have to worry about revenge for the time being, even if you directly kill them. If they really do advance recklessly, they would be in deep trouble. They definitely won't be bold enough to declare war on multiple ancient empires at the same time. Moreover, our southern region has an eternal empire as well.

Jian Chen sat on the stone seat silently. He thought about why the divine king would tell him this. It was as if he was certain that the people from the cult would come, and he hoped that Jian Chen could stop or even directly kill them.

"As a great Godking, it's not very likely for the divine king to say these useless things without good reason. W- will the people from the cult really come to the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian? And will they come for Ling Hougong?" Jian Chen wondered. He was rather uncertain.

However, Jian Chen had become fast friends with Ling Hougong long ago. Even though they did not spend much time together in Godking Duanmu's dwelling, the two of them had formed quite a deep friendship. As long as the matter involved Ling Hougong and the Ling family, Jian Chen would never just stand by.

If the people from the Empyrean Demon Cult really did come to make things difficult for the Ling family, Jian Chen would go forth and assist them even without the divine king's reminder.

Of course, that was only if they were not Godkings.

Afterwards, Jian Chen finally got the opportunity to state why he had come. He asked the divine king about other heavenly resources that could heal the soul like the Soul-drawing Lotus. He wanted to collect some so that he could wake up Kai Ya.

The divine king only spoke after pausing for a while, "I do know many pills and heavenly resources that can heal the soul, but there are extremely few that are on the same level or even surpass the Soul-drawing Lotus. You'll probably only be able to find them in the Yin Mountains of Sevens Despair."

"The Yin Mountains of Sevens Despair? Your majesty, may I ask what kind of place it is? Can I really find heavenly resources that are on par with the Soul-drawing Lotus there?"

"The Yin Mountains of Sevens Despair is located on the boundary between the Divine Kingdom of Qingyang and the Divine Kingdom of Datian. It's a mountain range that is always covered by seven-colored, poisonous miasma. Due to the potency of the miasma and how it can corrode the soul, even Godkings are unwilling to venture in there. Overgods are only able to move about on the outskirts. Due to the natural obstacle of the miasma, people rarely set foot in the mountains at all. Naturally, a few extraordinary heavenly resources would appear there after a very long time."

"Although many of these heavenly resources are extremely poisonous, there is a small portion that is useful for cultivation. You might just be able to find heavenly resources that can heal the soul there."

At this moment, the divine king waved his hand. A few plants immediately flew over by themselves from the depths of the royal gardens, landing in his hand. There just happened to be an Origin-gathering Flower among them.

"I can tell that you're in urgent need of heavenly resources that can heal the soul. Here are three jade-green Azure Sky Flowers. They can also heal the soul, except they're not as great as the Soul-drawing Lotus. I'll gift all of these to you along with a few other exotic flowers and herbs." The divine king extended his hand with the plants towards Jian Chen.

Jian Chen hesitated slightly before accepting it firmly. He knew that he could not decline these things. Accepting them would be equivalent to owing the divine king a favor, which would also show what circumstances he was in. There would only be benefits to the Tian Yuan clan from that.

"Feel free to check out the royal collection. You might be able to find something useful there. Moreover, I'll allow you to take three copies of the battle skills and cultivation methods from there with you as long as they're below the seventh grade of the Truth Tier so that you clansmen can use them," the divine king said to Jian Chen in the end. Only the Grand Imperial Protector who knew the divine king exceedingly well understood that the divine king was taking extremely great care of Jian Chen. He had given him a bit of everything. If he were some other Overgod, he would have to make a great contribution to the kingdom in exchange for only a single thing that Jian Chen had received.

It could be said that Jian Chen had obtained many benefits despite doing nothing at all.

After bidding farewell to the divine king, Jian Chen immediately thought of the ancestor of the Mo family who had taken his God Tier armor, and the Yin Mountains of Sevens Despair that laid on the border of the Divine Kingdom of Qingyang and the Divine Kingdom of Datian. Right now, he was tempted to go to the Divine Kingdom of Qingyang immediately to take back his God Tier armor from the ancestor of the Mo family. After that, he could go to the Yin Mountains of Sevens Despair for heavenly resources.

However, after some close thought, Jian Chen decided to visit the royal collection first.

He had obtained the divine king's permission to view all the books in there, regardless of grade or tier. Moreover, he could take three copies of cultivation methods and battle skills that were below the seventh grade of the Truth Tier back to his clan so that his clansmen could use them.

Although the books in the royal collection might not necessarily be beneficial to him, the three copies of battle skills or cultivation methods possessed quite a great attraction to Jian Chen. He had even felt excited over it as if he could see the day when the Tian Yuan clan had risen up.

Sixth grade cultivation methods of the Truth Tier would directly allow people to cultivate to Overgod, while battle skills of the same grade could be used by Overgods as well.

Although he had left behind a few Overgod cultivation methods and battle skills back at the clan, there would never be enough of them.

This was because not all people were suitable for a certain cultivation method. The more cultivation methods he could prepare, the more choice his clansmen would have, and that would increase their chances of becoming powerful.
