Volume 16 – Marriage - Chapter 5 – Palace Master?
Translated by: Pumpkin

The Utmost East Sage Emperor's Palace was not merely a single palace. Instead, it was an enormous palace with decorated with waterside pavilions, high grade buildings, and numerous winding corridors. The Utmost East Sage Emperor's personal resting place, the place where he would gather his subordinates, the place where he would train and so on, were all located within this Utmost East Sage Emperor's Palace. Thus, one could easily imagine how great of an area the Utmost East Sage Emperor's Palace occupied.
Qin Yu, Huangfu Jing, Hei Yu, Yuchi Gong and them, were all standing at the entrance of the Utmost East Sage Emperor's Palace. The entrance to the Utmost East Sage Emperor's Palace was the location of the palace.
"Those guarding the gates are all stronger than me." Gasped Hei Yu in a low voice.
Qin Yu looked to the two imperial guards located on the either sides of the palace entrance. Those two imperial guards were at the very least Mid Level Heavenly Deities. As for their exact strength, Qin Yu was also unable to tell.
"My Imperial Father knew that you would be coming. He should've already finished the preparations to receive you." Said Huangfu Jing to Qin Yu with a smile on her face. "Come, let's go in." She proceeded to walk over the gates.
One of the two imperial guards displayed a smile on his face. Respectfully, he said. "Princess, His Majesty Sage Emperor has ordered, that when Lord Qin Yu arrives, he is to be directly brought over to the waterside pavilion, 'South Pavilion.'
Huangfu Jing lightly nodded. She then led Qin Yu and them into the palace.
The palace was extremely spacious. It possessed a length and width of greater than two hundred feet. Usually, the Utmost East Sage Emperor would discuss official businesses at this location. On each side of the palace was a passageway. The group entered the passageway on the right side.
"Big brother, I feel that this place is very strange!" Hei Yu's voice sounded in Qin Yu's mind.
Qin Yu looked at Hei Yu beside him and then looked at their surroundings. He replied via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission. "Xiao Hei, the entire Utmost East Sage Emperor's Palace is covered by the Utmost East Sage Emperor's Divine Awareness. He is observing us at all times."
If the Utmost East Sage Emperor heard what Qin Yu said to Hei Yu, he would definitely be greatly shocked.
"Big brother, you're able to sense the Utmost East Sage Emperor's Divine Awareness?" Asked Hei Yu via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission. Qin Yu was capable of even detecting the Divine Awareness of a Godking?
Confronted with Hei Yu's suspicion, Qin Yu lightly nodded.
"At this moment, I have surrounded my body with my Universal World's Spatial Energy. If someone tries to investigate me with their Divine Awareness, they would definitely not be able to escape my detection." Qin Yu was extremely confident.
Because Qin Yu was the creator of the Universal World, he was able to instantly sense the slightest amount of change within the locations covered by the Universal World's Spatial Energy.
However, the Utmost East Sage Emperor was unable to detect the Spatial Energy that surrounded Qin Yu.
For one, this Spatial Energy was from the Universal World. The Utmost East Sage Emperor was someone who didn't know anything about the spatial laws of the Universal World.
Secondly, Qin Yu's control over the Spatial Energy from the Universal World had already reached perfection level. He was able to spread it all over without anyone being able to detect it at all.
However, if the two of them were to fight, then Qin Yu would be greatly inferior to the Utmost East Sage Emperor who comprehended the Spatial Laws of the Divine Realm and could instantly utilize the entire Divine Realm's Spatial Energy.
Listening to the nearby sounds of running water after walking on the stony path for some time, the group had arrived outside a courtyard.
"We've arrived. My Imperial Father is in there." Said Huangfu Jing with a smile on her face.
Qin Yu lightly nodded. Involuntarily, his grave and stern face displayed a slight smile. Qin Yu walked alongside Huangfu Jing. Hei Yu, Yuchi Gonglan, Uncle Fu and Qiuzhong Fu followed behind them.
After walking into this courtyard, they reached a large pond. On top of the large pond was a narrow passageway. Following along this passageway, they arrived at an exquisite building above the water.
While they were still far away, Qin Yu already heard the sound of laughter coming from the exquisite pavilion building.
"Eh? There's quite many people." Huangfu Jing opened her eyes and then said to Qin Yu with a smile. At the same time, she sped up her pace. Bringing Qin Yu, they directly entered this pavilion building. They then walked up to the second floor.
The second floor was filled with windows on all sides. Even the roof was only half present. The other half was empty.
Six people sat in the second floor, three males and three females. They were a mild looking middle aged man, two beautiful madams, a lively little girl and two violent tiger-like and astonishingly imposing looking men.
"Imperial Father, Qin Yu has arrived. Imperial Mother, Aunt!" Huangfu Jing said as she greeted them with smiles on her face.
Yuchi Gonglan said respectfully. "Your Majesty Sage Emperor, Her Majesty Godking, Her Majesty Empress." Yuchi Gonglan only saluted these three individuals. The other three individuals merely nodded their heads while smiling.
"Qin Yu, let me introduce them to you." Huangfu Jing said enthusiastically. "This is my Imperial Father."
"Utmost East Sage Emperor!"
Qin Yu's gaze was instantly locked onto this gentle looking middle aged man. This gentle looking middle aged man wore a soft and peaceful looking golden silk gown. On his face was a smile.
"Qin Yu pays his respects to Your Majesty Sage Emperor." Qin Yu bowed.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu had already carefully examined Qin Yu the moment he came in. However, the result of his inspection had shocked him. Qin Yu's body actually still contained the aura of Divine Energy.
"Qin Yu, your Divine Energy still has not finished transforming into Heavenly Divine Energy?" Said the Utmost East Sage Emperor with a slightly surprised tone.
"Divine Energy?" Said that lively girl who sat to the side in surprise. Even the other two men also looked at Qin Yu with shock. A grandmaster of the formation array who had reached such a high level in the formation array actually still had Divine Energy in his body?
Qin Yu nodded and said. "That is correct. Your Majesty Sage Emperor, I spent the majority of my time and effort on formation arrays and did not pay much attention to the energy within my body."
"So that was the case. No wonder you managed to achieve such a level of accomplishment." The Utmost East Sage Emperor nodded. He turned to a beautiful madam beside him and said. "Liuxiang, what do you think about Qin Yu?" The Utmost East Sage Emperor immediately introduced her to Qin Yu. "Qin Yu, this is the Hundred Flowers Godking."
Qin Yu immediately started to carefully examine this beautiful madam.
This beautiful madam wore a pink gauze dress. She had a red mark in between her brows. Her eyes were beautiful like limpid autumn waters. The Hundred Flowers Godking, Huangfu Liuxiang, carefully inspected Qin Yu. She then smiled and nodded. "He's indeed not bad. At the very least, he's a lot more earnest compared to those three sons of yours."
The Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu was unable to refrain from smiling.
"Three sons?" Qin Yu looked to the other two men in the pavilion building. "Could it perhaps be these two people and that Huangfu Liushui are all the sons of the Utmost East Sage Emperor?"
When Qin Yu was thinking about this, Huangfu Jing continued to make more introductions. "Qin Yu, this is my Imperial Mother."
"Qin Yu pays his respects to the Empress." Qin Yu slightly bowed.
Although the Empress's status was very high, her strength cannot be regarded as being very strong. She was merely a Mid Level Heavenly Deity. To be dual training with the Utmost East Sage Emperor for this many years, yet still possessing such a weak level of power, it signified that her training comprehension level is truly insufficient." The Empress also lightly nodded to Qin Yu.
"This is my younger sister, Ling'er, Huangfu Ling. This is my eldest brother, Huangfu Liejun. This is my second brother, Huangfu Liehuo. As for my third brother, you've already met him." Huangfu Jing introduced her siblings extremely casually.
Qin Yu lightly bowed.
Huangfu Liehuo and Huangfu Liujun both had a head full of short dazzling blond hair. Their auras were both astonishingly imposing. Merely, when looking at them, Huangfu Liehuo, whose hair and beard was unkempt, looked like an irascible person. As for Huangfu Liujun, his hair was short and spiky and he looked extremely steadfast and a bit more earnest. Merely, as he opened his eyes, the imposing aura of disdainfully looking down upon the entire world was unable to refrain from spreading out.
"The sons and daughters of this Utmost East Sage Emperor are all exceptional." Qin Yu gasped in his heart. "Three sons and two daughters, all of them are that powerful."
Qin Yu did not know much about the Eight Great Families of the Divine Realm.
These Eight Great Families were different from the mortals. The bloodlines of the Eight Great Families were extremely important to them. The first generation of the Eight Great Families possessed the best bloodline. Thus, they were able to achieve even greater accomplishments.
As the generations passed down, the further down they go, the thinner their bloodline becomes. Thus, it became harder for them to achieve a high accomplishment.
For example, the Jiang Clan of the Utmost Northern Region's Floating Snow City. The two brothers Jiang Lan and Jiang Fan were both Godkings. Even Jiang Xing was merely a generation after them. Then look at the Utmost Eastern Region's Mount Dazzling Gold. This Hundred Flowers Godking and the Utmost East Sage Emperor and the Gold Sword Godking, Huangfu Lei, were all blood siblings. For them, the first generation, it was a lot easier to train.
Where were the parents of the Utmost East Sage Emperor, Utmost North Sage Emperor and them?
Other than the Utmost East Sage Emperor, Utmost North Sage Emperor themselves, even their children did not know about it. This could be considered a secret of the Divine Realm.
The Eight Great Families of the Divine Realm possessed superiority. However, they also possessed a weak point.
Those from the first generation, although they were very few, over half of them were Godkings. The rest of them were all High Level Heavenly Deities. As for the second generation, it was rare for a Godking to appear.
As for the third generation and down, it was extremely difficult for a Godking to appear in that generation. It was only possible should they possess great willpower.
However, what about the mortals? Although it was extremely difficult for them to train, they also possessed an equally great amount of potential. Regardless of which generation, when they reached the later stages of cultivation, they all possessed that trace of hope in becoming Godkings.
"Big sister, I heard that you have a pretty good impression of that Qin Yu." Huangfu Ling's large eyes were cast toward Huangfu Jing and then to Qin Yu.
Huangfu Jing glared at Huangfu Ling.
"Imperial Father, you've invited this Qin Yu over, so what sort of position do you plan to have him assume?" Said that Huangfu Liehuo carefreely.
"I actually have an idea regarding this." The Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu smiled and said. "You all know that in the Imperial City, there are the Utmost East Sage Emperor's Palace and four other palaces: Misty Mystic Palace, Black Wind Palace, Liejun's Palace and the Heaven Desolate Palace. However, at present, there are only three Palace Masters. The Misty Mystic Palace is still empty as there has never been anyone who took up the position of the Misty Mystic Palace's Palace Master. Thus, I think…"
"Second brother!" The Hundred Flowers Godking's eyelids were raised. Her aura had instantly grown sharp.
"Second brother, the reason why the Misty Mystic Palace is empty is not because no one was capable of becoming the Palace Master but rather because the competition for the Palace Master was too fierce and a conclusion had never been reached the entire time. The position of Palace Masters are statuses that are second only to the Godkings. Second brother, you most definitely cannot casually give the position of the Palace Master to a newly emerged person without qualifications." Hundred Flowers Godking directly voiced her opposition.
The opposition from a Godking had instantly caused the Utmost East Sage Emperor to stop his speech.
The three Godkings of Mount Dazzling Gold, Huangfu Yu, Huangfu Lei and Huangfu Liuxiang. Among them, only Huangfu Liuxiang was a female. Usually, her two older brothers would always humour this younger sister of theirs.
"Second brother, think about it. The Palace Masters of the Black Wind Palace and the Heaven Desolate Palace are both individuals who have provided great merit in the Incomparable Great Tribulation six quadrillion years ago. They possess great qualifications and their strength are both at the peak of the High Level Heavenly Deity stage. For the two of them to be Palace Masters, there is no one that opposes that. As for the Liejun's Palace, it's a palace especially created and given to to the first prince, Huangfu Liejun. The first prince, in all these years, has been the one who commanded the Heavenly Deity Army to fight in battles all around. Adding on his status, for him to be a Palace Master, there is also no one who would oppose it. However, right now, you wanted to give the Misty Mystic Palace to a new person…"
The Hundred Flowers Godking Huangfu Liuxiang shook her head. Evidently, Huangfu Liuxiang was extremely dissatisfied.
After hearing what the Hundred Flowers Godking said, Qin Yu immediately came to understand the status rankings of Mount Dazzling Gold. Evidently, these Four Great Palace Masters were individuals who were second to only Godkings. Their statuses were higher than even ordinary High Level Heavenly Deities.
If he were to become a Palace Master, then he would possess more confidence when proposing marriage for Li'er to the Utmost North Sage Emperor. However, Qin Yu's qualifications were too low.
"Your Majesty Sage Emperor…" Qin Yu was prepared to refuse it, when…
The Utmost East Sage Emperor extended his hand to stop him. He then turned to the Hundred Flowers Godking. With a smile, he said. "Liuxiang, what you said was reasonable. In all these years, those who are truly fighting over the position of the Misty Mystic Palace's Palace Master, aren't there only two of them? One is one of your disciples and the other is a large squadron captain from the Heavenly Deity Army."
Huangfu Liuxiang slightly nodded and said. "Although Xue Yu is a female, she has followed me for numerous years. Although she is seemingly unremarkable, she has unwittingly provided numerous meritorious services to our Mount Dazzling Gold. In terms of strength, she is also at the High Level Heavenly Deity stage. If she were to become the Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace, how would anyone dare oppose it?"
At this moment, Huangfu Liejun who had been silent the entire time spoke. "Aunt, Xue Yu is indeed exceptional. However, my good brother Dong Hou also possesses a status in the Heavenly Deity Army that is not beneath myself. Although it is said that the Heavenly Deity Army is under my command, in actuality, the majority of the time it is brother Dong Hou who leads the army. His status, qualifications and strength are also sufficient enough to become the Misty Mystic Palace's Palace Master."
Qin Yu was listening from the side.
Evidently, the Utmost East Sage Emperor was in support of him, the Hundred Flowers Godking was in support of her disciple, whereas Huangfu Liejun and a lot of the people from the Heavenly Deity Army, supported that Dong Hou.
"Big brother, it seems that many people are fighting for this position." Said Hei Yu to Qin Yu via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission.
"Before I came, the two sides were in a state of stalemate. Now that I've come and the Utmost East Sage Emperor wanted to present the position of the Palace Master to me, these two sides naturally would not sit by idly." Qin Yu replied via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission. However, Qin Yu was instead extremely composed.

Huangfu Ling who sat next to Huangfu Jing stood up. "Imperial Father, Aunt, the two of you should stop arguing. I've heard that this Qin Yu is extremely amazing. The formation array that he deployed was so powerful that even High Level Heavenly Deities were unable to break through it. With merely that formation array, Big Sis Xue Yu and Big Bro Dong Hou would be unable to break through it. For Qin Yu to be the Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace, I am in favor of that with both my hands and feet!
"Feet too? Oh, you little girl." Hundred Flowers Godking Huangfu Liuxing started laughing.
[TL: being in favor with both hands = completely in favor. However, she even said she's in favor of that with her feet too.]
Qin Yu also smiled as he looked to this Huangfu Ling. She was truly an adorable little girl.
At this moment, Huangfu Liehuo said carefreely. "What's the need to make the situation this complicated? Let's just make it a bit more simple and have them fight against each other. Whoever is stronger shall be the Palace Master. Wouldn't this solve the problem?"
Qin Yu who had been carefully listening to entire time, upon hearing what Huangfu Liehuo said, started smiling in his heart.
If they were to truly compete, then he could just deploy the formation array and then, regardless of how much the other two people tried to resist, it would still be impossible for them to escape the formation array. In the formation array, they could only allow themselves to be ravaged by him.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu's eyes shined. He nodded and said. "Good. In that case, we shall use the method proposed by Liuhuu and have them…"
"What's good about that?" Huangfu Liuxiang interrupted the Utmost East Sage Emperor.
Huangfu Liuxiang gave the Utmost East Sage Emperor a side-eye glance and said. "Second brother, you clearly knew that Qin Yu was capable of deploying a formation array space. The possibility that Xue Yu and Dong Hou being able to win against him is too low, truly too low. Aren't you deliberately trying to let Qin Yu win?"
"Liuxiang, in that case, what do you propose?" The Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu looked to Huangfu Liuxiang.
Qin Yu also looked to this Hundred Flowers Godking. He was wondering what sort of method to select the Misty Mystic Palace's Palace Master this Hundred Flowers Godking would be proposing.
Huangfu Liuxiang was silent for a moment. She then said. "The Misty Mystic Palace is one of the Four Great Palaces. The Palace requires not merely a Palace Master, it also requires a large number of subordinates. Only thus would it be qualified to be one of our Mount Dazzling Gold's Four Great Palaces."
"Since it requires subordinates, then we must inspect the quality of the subordinates. How about this… we are to have three competitions. One for the potential successor of the Palace Master, one for the Mid Level Heavenly Deities and one for the Low Level Heavenly Deities."
"Among the three competitions, if one side were to win two of the competitions, then they shall be declared the winner. Qin Yu shall be on one side, Dong Huo shall be another and Xue Yu shall also be another. The three sides shall alternate to fight. The side that wins the most battles shall be the Palace Master. What do you all think about that?" Huangfu Liuxiang had a smile on her face.
Xue Yu was her disciple. For a Godking like her, finding powerful Mid Level Heavenly Deities and Low Level Heavenly Deities was an extremely easy task.
"That?" Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu frowned.
It was clear that his sister was determined to help that Xue Yu. If a Godking was determined to help someone, then the line-up for the matches would definitely be extremely exceptional. It might be very hard for Qin Yu to win.
Furthermore, what about Dong Hou? Standing behind him was practically the entire Heavenly Deity Army. Selecting the strongest Mid Level Heavenly Deity and Low Level Heavenly Deity among the Heavenly Deity Lineup, there was also no need to mention how exceptional his line-up would be.
What sort of line-up could Qin Yu possibly send forth?
The Utmost East Sage Emperor suddenly said. "Qin Yu has just come to our Mount Dazzling Gold. I have yet to provide him with anything yet. In that case, let me bestow upon him a group of imperial guards…"
"Second brother, you most definitely cannot so openly support Qin Yu." Said Huangfu Liuxiang while smiling. "Regardless of whether it's Qin Yu, Dong Hou or my disciple Xue Yu, the people they sent forth must be people that they personally invited and received consent from them. People other than the three of them cannot forcefully impose orders to help those three! Regardless of whether it is me, second brother you, or big brother, none of us are allowed to interfere."
The Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu was angered speechless.
Not provide a helping hand?
Xue Yu had followed the Hundred Flowers Godking for too long, who among the Hundred Flowers Godking's Palace did not possess a good relationship with Xue Yu? If Xue Yu were to invite them to help, who among them would refuse?
There was also no need to mention Dong Hou's reputation.
What about Qin Yu? How many people could he possibly know? Why would others help Qin Yu?
"Your Majesty Sage Emperor, there is no need for you to demand insistently about this matter. If I were to be able to obtain this position, then I shall obtain it. If I cannot obtain it, then it means that it was never meant for me. Let's go with the method proposed by Her Majesty Hundred Flowers Godking. The people sent forth by me, they must have agreed to it themselves." Qin Yu said.
Huangfu Liuxing started laughing. "Second brother, did you hear that? Even Brother Qin Yu himself has agreed to it." As she said that, Huangfu Liuxing even smiled to Qin Yu. "Little Brother Qin Yu is truly reasonable."
The Utmost East Sage Emperor took a glance at Qin Yu and then sighed.
Huangfu Jing also sent a Divine Awareness Voice Transmission to Qin Yu and said in an aggrieved tone. "Qin Yu, while you might've captured some people, but they are at most those Heavenly Deities that are bandits, right? How high could the standards of those bandits be? My aunt, each and every one of her disciples are elites. As for that Xue Yu, she is someone that my aunt treated like her own daughter. She even possesses a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure!"
Grandmist Spiritual Treasure?
Qin Yu was slightly startled.
It would appear that he had underestimated the Hundred Flowers Godking. As a Godking, even if he doesn't openly help her disciple, she was still extremely formidable when helping her from the shadows.
Qin Yu had a smile on his face.
He was completely confident!
The Utmost East Sage Emperor could only smile helplessly. He then said. "Well then, since this was the case, then the matter is decided. As for the time of the competition, let's set it as…"
"There's no need to rush. This bears upon the position of the Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace. It is best to properly set the preparations for it. How about this, let's make it a year from now. It shouldn't be too late for the competition to be a year from now." Huangfu Liuxiang immediately said.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor was truly unable to win against his own sister. Thus, he could only nod. "Good, good, a year from now. We shall determine the Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace this day a year from now."
"Second brother, since we've determined it to be so, I'll take my leave first." Huangfu Liuxing stood up while beaming with smiles.
When Huangfu Liuxing walked by Qin Yu, she even slightly smiled to Qin Yu and said to him via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission. "Little guy, you must properly give it your all. Don't let your people lose too miserably."
After that, the Hundred Flowers Godking left like that.
"A year?' Qin Yu thought in his heart. "A year outside is a hundred years in the second layer space of the Jiang Lan's Realm. A hundred years, even if it is not enough for my Divine Energy to completely transform into Heavenly Divine Energy, it is still sufficient for me to refine the Magnificent Lotus Clone."
Qin Yu had long since wanted to refine the Magnificent Lotus Clone.
According to the records of the Bewitching God Temple's golden scrolls, once one successfully refines the Magnificent Lotus Clone, one's body would become indestructibly hard. After all, the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was comparable to a second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. The core of the Nine Petaled Magnificent lotus, the lotus core, was incomparably hard. The clone created through the lotus core definitely possessed a hardness that surpassed that of a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact.
Furthermore, the Magnificent Lotus Clone naturally possessed a special domain.
"With this Magnificent Lotus Clone, I would not fear even if I were to fight against a High Level Heavenly Deity head on." Qin Yu was extremely confident. With a hardness that surpassed High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact, even spatial cracks would not be able to rip it apart.
The Magnificent Lotus Clone was essentially a human shaped Grandmist Spiritual Treasure!
"However, it is unworthy for me to take out this Magnificent Lotus Clone during the competition." There was no need for Qin Yu to take out the Magnificent Lotus Clone unless it was a moment of crisis.
This was especially true when he added on the Divine Spear Waning Snow and the teleportation technique on top of the Magnificent Lotus Clone!
Defense, attack power and speed, all of them were at the apex. Such an existence was completely able to sweep across all the Heavenly Deities. Even when confronted with Godkings, such an existence would still be able to fight against them.
This was Qin Yu's strongest power. Merely. Qin Yu would not easily display such power to others.
Without the Magnificent Lotus Clone, Qin Yu's weakest point was his defense. Regardless of how tough his body was, he would still not be able to withstand the Spatial Destruction technique of High Level Heavenly Deities as his body was no Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
"The most important thing to do is to refine the Magnificent Lotus Clone." Qin Yu thought in his heart. "After the Utmost East Sage Emperor arranges a place for me to live, I shall start concentrating on refining the Magnificent Lotus Clone."
At this moment, the Utmost East Sage Emperor spoke. Qin Yu immediately woke back up from his thoughts.
"I am very happy that you were willing to come to my Mount Dazzling Gold. I have already prepared gifts for you. I hope you would like them." With a wave of the Utmost East Sage Emperor's hand, a large black chest appeared in the pavilion building.
Not only Qin Yu, even the other people looked to this large black chest with confused expressions. The Utmost East Sage Emperor's present would definitely not be ordinary. What exactly was in this large black chest?"
"Qin Yu, you can open it." Said the Utmost East Sage Emperor with a smile on his face.
"Thank you, Your Majesty Sage Emperor." Qin Yu did not refuse. He walked forward and opened the large black chest.
"Clang…" After the chest was opened, other than the Utmost East Sage Emperor who was looking at Qin Yu with a smile on his face, the other people all looked to the chest.
The chest was tidily filled with golden scrolls. With a sweep from Qin Yu's Divine Awareness, he discovered that there were over a thousand golden scrolls in this chest.
At this moment, Qin Yu felt a burst of delight in his heart.
To ordinary Heavenly Deities, what was the most precious? It wasn't Divine Spiritual Stones. Instead, it was records like the golden scrolls. What the golden scrolls recorded was the experience of those seniors before them.
For example, Qin Yu, if he did not possess the nine hundred golden scrolls of the 'Array Path,' how would he possibly be able to set past the entrance of the 'Array Path?' Had it not been for his study of the Array Path, then he would likely be unable to even understand the theory of the level eight formation arrays. If he doesn't understand it, then even if he knew the spatial laws of the Universal World, he would still not be able to create a formation array space.
When Heavenly Deities obtained a single golden scroll, they would already be overjoyed.
"Your Majesty Sage Emperor, these are?" Qin Yu said in amazement.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor smiled and said. "These are all the golden scrolls of my Utmost Eastern Region's Mount Dazzling Gold that contain information regarding the entire path of artifact refining. These are the records that contain information pertaining to methods of artifact crafting. Of course, the works regarding formation arrays are not among them. To have you read works regarding formation arrays would be the same as mocking you."
"They are all about artifact crafting?" Qin Yu was unable to conceal his surprise.
"That's right, they're all about artifact crafting." Said the Utmost East Sage Emperor with a smile on his face.
It was very evident why the Utmost East Sage Emperor invited Qin Yu. He wanted Qin Yu to craft artifacts! The usefulness of a grandmaster of formation arrays was not great. However, a grandmaster of the artifact crafting, especially one who has reached the 'Craftsman God's' level, possessed a great amount of use.
It was extremely possible for a grandmaster of formation arrays to become a grandmaster of artifact crafting.
Qin Yu looked to Uncle Fu beside him. Uncle Fu also had an excited expression in his eyes.
Although the 'Craftsman God' Chehou Yuan was extremely amazing in the artifact crafting path, his artifact crafting path were all things that he had personally researched. He merely possessed over four hundred golden scrolls pertaining to artifact crafting.
Although the 'Craftsman God' Chehou Yuan was extremely amazing at crafting artifacts, it was not because he possessed astonishing accomplishments in the artifact crafting path. Instead, it was because he achieved astonishing accomplishment in formation arrays. In terms of artifact crafting… when compared to the Huangfu Clan that had existed since the birth of the Divine Realm, Chehou Yuan was not necessarily stronger.
"To gather the thoughts of many schools, it is always beneficial to read more." Qin Yu happily waved his hand and accepted this large black chest.
"Thank you, Your Majesty Sage Emperor, for the gift. I will definitely strive my hardest to study them. I am also very interested in crafting artifacts." Said Qin Yu with a smile on his face.
Hearing Qin Yu's speech, the Utmost East Sage Emperor immediately started laughing heartily.
What he wanted was precisely for Qin Yu to craft artifacts!
"Jing'er, arrange for that empty mansion house in the western district of the city that belonged to me to give to Qin Yu. You can bring him over to receive that mansion house right away. In the future, he can live there." Said the Utmost East Sage Emperor with a smile on his face.
Huangfu Jing immediately stood up and said willingly. "Yes, Imperial Father."
Yuchi Gonglan had already left to see his old friend. As for Qin Yu and them, they followed behind Huangfu Jing and Huangfu Ling out of the Imperial City and proceeded to walk toward the western district.
Because of the fact that there were not many people in the Dazzling Gold City, although the city was over a thousand miles in circumference, there were still many places for people to live. This caused the residences of every single person to be pretty large. Their appearances were also fantastic oddities of every description.
"Qin Yu, back then, you shouldn't have agreed to it that easily. Although my aunt is sometimes a bit overbearing and tyrannical, as long as the debate continued, my aunt would still make a bit of a concession. Now that you could only rely on your own people, how could you possibly be able to compete for the position of the Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace?" Huangfu Jing felt regret for Qin Yu.
Huangfu Ling also firmly nodded her head to express her agreement.
Qin Yu was about to say something when… "Big brother, leave the battle for the Low Level Heavenly Deity to me." Hei Yu's voice sounded.
Qin Yu looked at Hei Yu. Xiao Hei's Flowing Light Spear Path was something that even Qin Yu was unable to see through. Qin Yu was also looking forward to the scene of Xiao Hei fighting against others.
"Good, I'll leave the battle of the Low Level Heavenly Deity to you." Said Qin Yu with a smile.
"Uncle Fu, after we arrive at the mansion house, you shall be in charge of everything in the mansion house. I will also let out those Heavenly Deity servants of mine. After we return, I plan to enter seclusion training for a period of time." Said Qin Yu to Uncle Fu as they walked on the road.
"Yes, master." Uncle Fu said respectfully.
Qin Yu was thinking about that Magnificent Lotus Clone the entire time. At the same time, other than the Magnificent Lotus Clone, Qin Yu also thought of the golden bead.
"That golden bead, during the time when my soul was still at the Golden Soul Pellet stage, my soul was unable to touch it at all. Now that my soul has reached the Embryo Soul stage, I should be able to refine it."
Qin Yu became even more excited.
The Magnificent Lotus Clone and that golden bead that he had never heard about. Once he refined these two items, what sort of things would they bring him?
