Paragon of Sin

Chapter 295: G.S.T First Meeting

Lin Ming watched all this silently, particularly watching Zuhei. Despite wanting to fight Zuhei, this was not the best platform to do so. The final trial was. There, combat was singularly focused and being ganged up on or having the support of beast companions were disallowed. It would be a fair battle between geniuses, so he didn ’t particularly care if they decided to not fight here.

To him, this was also his thoughts. This was just not the right time.

”He ’s your subordinate? ” Lin Ming asked Wei Wuyin, his stance and expression relatively calm despite the hyperactive movements in the background. The sounds of unwilling wails filled with anguish, pain, and fear resounded. In the matter of seconds, several individuals had already been directly eliminated by beasts. Even Wei Wuyin ’s pillar of light started to become brighter, bigger, and more noticeable thanks to his beasts.

Wei Wuyin nodded, ”If you want to fight him, you can wait until the third trial. ” His words carried his intent. As for personally fighting Lin Ming? He didn ’t have that intention at all. It gave him no benefits, and even if he sought to claim his karmic luck from his corpse, it would inevitably speed up his own calamity. He wouldn ’t do something so reckless, even if he was already prepared.

He still had numerous plans he had to set-up to rest his mind before tackling that nightmare. And if he miscalculated, who knew if he ’d face the second and third calamity simultaneously or directly after each other. The very thought gave him goosebumps.

Lin Ming ’s attitude was casual, ”I wouldn ’t mind fighting you too. ” The confidence he had was brimming to a peak. Earlier, when Zuhei and Wei Wuyin exchanged three moves, he felt the power within and knew it wasn ’t at a level that threatened him. But Wei Wuyin still exchanged three foundational moves with a nine-ringed Soul Idol, that was quite incredible even if he lost.

The fact he ’s still standing was likely, to him, Zuhei holding back to prevent harming this so-called ’Master ’ of his. Considering Wei Wuyin ’s rumored potential and Zuhei insane talent for cultivation, this pair was definitely to be given caution.

However, when he thought about Wei Wuyin ’s lack of an Alchemic Astral Soul and his Senior Sister ’s words about its absolute requirement to reach the greater limits in the Dao of Alchemy, he felt that Wei Wuyin wasn ’t that important.

He stretched slightly, ignoring the chaos behind him. ”Then, I ’ll see you later. ” He left, arriving atop his Gold-Starred elephant, and they departed with an aura of ease.

”He ’s a weird one, ” Wei Wuyin remarked. Lin Ming ’s journey must ’ve been filled with challenges, all of which he had overcome, likely thanks to the Heavenly Daos. But it was this continuous degree of success that gave him apex levels of self-confidence in his own ability and sturdiness of his life.

Yuan Longshi must ’ve been the same, just a tad more bloodthirsty.

”If he obtained Han Xei ’s inheritance, he definitely deserves his attitude. ” Wu Yu commented, eliciting an eye-roll from Wei Wuyin.

”Was he stronger than you? ” Wei Wuyin asked as he decided to find a spot to sit.

”No. But he was definitely more talented, more determined, more intelligent, and more vicious than I was. While I used absolute strength, he used other means. Unfortunately for him, the King of Everlore favored me and others more than him. I eclipsed him easily during our time, reigning over the top. ” Wu Yu ’s words carried a hint of pride and also nostalgia.

Wei Wuyin felt that the King of Everlore truly defined his era, the next, and the next(which is the current). His brushstrokes in life left an unerasable mark on history and the future.

”I suffered a calamity, while he remained. He should ’ve left the starfield and improved even further. Knowing him, his caution and abilities, he ’s probably alive and well today. ” A soft sigh of resignation and defeat emerged in his voice. When he attempted to tackle the next stage of the Mystic Ascendant Realm, he failed due to the King of Everlore ’s departure. Without his support, his lack of talent started to show itself.

But Divine King Han Xei was talented to begin with, relying more on himself than others.

Wei Wuyin felt this. As an Alchemist, those he nurtured needed a strong foundation, but foundational products were the most difficult to concoct. Furthermore, unlike a single pill that would allow someone to enter the Gravity Emission Phase of the Astral Core Realm, foundational products needed numerous products, dozens, hundreds, or even thousands to accumulate a sufficient base to ascend at the peak.

It wouldn ’t be hard for him to pick a random nobody off the street and develop them into a current era Grand Sage level character with a few products, but that character would be weaker than Zuhei at his current level. They would even be weaker than Tuo Bihan. Forget about nine-rings, they might not even reach five rings.

”Foundation and innate talent is important, ” this once more reaffirmed his decision to decide on people who ’ve developed their own Intents, such as Ying and Zuhei. They reeked of innate talent, lacking merely the foundation. With it, their growth and ascension through cultivation stages would be natural and perfect.

This was why he never once gave his subordinates products that can directly increase their cultivation levels.

But the King of Everlore was different from him. He didn ’t have the luxury, time, or ability to refine products with such extreme speed. If he wanted to wholeheartedly invest in a single individual, to produce a Zuhei during his Mortal Sovereign Alchemist days, he would ’ve needed to spend decades of his life.

Wu Yu precisely lacked that foundation. Even if he reached the Mystic Ascendant Realm, even if he created a star in the sky, his lack of talent and foundation gated his cultivation without the appropriate support.

While he was thinking about these things, the world above was in utter chaos.
