Paragon of Sin

Chapter 804 - Earthly Ascension

Not only were the eight Mortal Sovereign Alchemists present on the deck, but two figures dressed entirely in full-body emerald-colored armor etched with mystic runes across its surface. These runes were elegant in placement and symmetrical fashion, glowing faintly with a mystical light. The two emitted auras that were unfathomable!

They were two of the three Ever-Knights. These Ever-Knights were Earthly Saints cultivated by the various Mortal Sovereign Alchemists and the Evergod Pill Alchemic Saint. They served as guardians of the Everlore Domain and protectors of the Mortal Sovereign Alchemists.

They were specifically curated to be the most lethal soldiers, taken from the abnormally talented. There wasnt a single force that didnt fear the three Ever-Knights of the Evergod! It was rumored that these Ever-Knights had obtained direct nurturing from the King of Everlore himself at his peak. Of course, this was never verified.

They had been mobilized after the Mortal Sovereign Alchemists sought to unanimously visit this reckless Demi-Mortal Lord that dared try to ascend to the next stage in their territory. If it wasnt for San Luoyangs quick thinking, they wouldve likely ruined a second cauldron. They were all seething with ill-intent, still nursing their wounds caused by the severance of their senses and the crash.

Mu Yura glanced at the Ever-Knight, her heterochromic eyes glimmered with a wisp of interest. She turned away, seeing San Luoyang looking into the distance with a heavy frown. She walked over and solemnly asked, “Why would the Imperial Clan do this? Was it deliberate?”

Those two questions caused San Luoyangs expression to darken considerably. Since the Spiritquake, numerous moves by the Everlore Association and other forces were being prepared and made. The Sky Zenith Saint Alchemists potential success provoked fear in all their hearts, and the Imperial Clans oath limitations that restrained them could be broken.

Not a single mystic force within the Aeternal Sky Starfield wanted this, especially not the neighboring Starfields. Threatened by this possibility, the Imperial Clan had already suffered some losses during this short period. But this move wasnt one he expected, and he couldnt fathom why.

Were they trying to sacrifice a talented piece to shatter some oaths? Or was this a display of power? Authority? It felt odd, but this was certainly brazen. This was why he asked for two Ever-Knights to accompany them. Furthermore, the Imperial Clan couldnt act against the Mortal Sovereign Alchemists of the Everlore Association without cause, so they were safe regardless.

“Were going to find out,” San Luoyang coldly said. The aura from this Earthly Ascension was definitely related to the Imperial Clan based on the unique auric signature of their cultivation method.

The Voidship blazed through the Dark Void at speeds beyond the full speed of a Demi-Mortal Lord. This was an insanely fast Voidship, likely within the top ten of all Voidships in the Grand Cyclic Stellar Region!

The Ascended beings who could sense the intense fluctuations from their flight path causes a deep level of intrigue. Soon, they began to gather and focus their senses towards the Earthly Ascensions epicenter. Whatever was about to happen, it was bound to be intense!

Wei Wuyin and Wen Mingna hovered in the upper atmosphere of the Rainbow Sky. They stood shoulder to shoulder, gazing at the area above them dignified expressions.

Wei Wuyin frowned, believing that something happened to Wu Yu to make him do something so reckless. After all, even False Realmlords were capable of sensing others attempting their Seventh Astral Tribulation. There was no way other Ascended beings wouldnt discover this. His intentions were for Wu Yu to ascend in Void-Blank Space or one of those devastated starfields.

Wen Mingna seemed to guess Wei Wuyins thoughts, explaining: “Grand Monarch Wu Yu mustve awakened his Mystic Intent. It seems its not only the Third Ascension.”

Wei Wuyins mind stirred as he turned to her. Unlike Wen Mingna, he was woefully ignorant of details regarding the Mystic Ascendant Realm. However, Heavenly Seers were known for possessing knowledge beyond their states of existence. Furthermore, she belonged to a mystic-tier force and had years to study and learn from her seniors.

Wen Mingna saw the expression Wei Wuyin revealed and elaborated, “The Grand Seer once explained the simplistic detailings of the Mystic Ascendant Realm, including the overall goal of cultivators who seek the Earthly Saint Phase, the Fourth Stage of the Mystic Ascendant Realm. She said that a cultivator must awaken their Mystic Intent, grasping a true portion of the Mystic Dao.

“When I asked if it was possible to awaken Mystic Intent prior to reaching the Demi-Mortal Phase, she didnt answer me, but I believe it is under the right conditions, such as serendipitous enlightenment. If done correctly, an Ascended cultivator should be able to leap directly to the Earthly Saint after passing the other stages of Ascension. And it might not have been Grand Monarch Wu Yus choice, but a direct, unintended consequence of awakening his Mystic Intent.”

Wei Wuyin frowned. As he heard Wen Mingnas words, he didnt have that typical feeling that suggested an incompleteness of information. It felt whole. Did this mean a cultivator could skip stages in the Mystic Ascendant Realm?

When his thoughts reached here, he instantly recalled the Battlefield and Guan Yus words. Guan Yu once said that the Nexus Battlefield considered those at the Mystic Star Phase as Ascended beings, so why would he consider them differently? In accordance with societal standards in the Grand Cyclic Stellar Region, even Wang Yutian, those at the Mystic Star Phase were all failures of the Mystic Ascendant Realm. Maybe thats so, but what if the phase was still the true First Stage of the Mystic Ascendant Realm?

If so, then all thosesuccessful Ascended beings had directly skipped a stage, demonstrating incredible talent. Was the Mystic Dao designed in such a way? And what purpose did the Mystic Star Phase hold exactly?

He lifted his head towards the epicenter of the disturbance. Was Wu Yu attempting to become an Earthly Saint directly?

…was he the cause?
