Paragon of Sin

Chapter 171: Hell Layer of War

dily available in this world, comprehension couldn ’t be forced, so there were still high-level, thousand year old Astral Core Realm experts with merely the four basic elements—Fire, Earth, Wind, and Water—birthed.

These Intents were manifested by the Spirit, capable of influencing Metaphysical Qi, and refining essence into energy.

There were those like Na Xinyi and Qing Qiumu with unique physiques that automatically allowed them to give birth to these Intents, allowing them to cultivate Wood Qi and Yin Qi with utter ease.

This young beastman had given birth to this exceptionally difficult and monstrous Intent. But, Intent wasn ’t everything in cultivation, nor did it define potential on the path of cultivation, merely combat prowess. If it did, then Long Chen, a wielder of Slaughter and Sword Intent, would ’ve been automatically classified as a Heavenly King upon entry.

Unfortunately, Intent was often overlooked because it didn ’t help orthodox cultivation. In the Astral Core Realm, one had to comprehend the specific aspects of that phase and then challenge the subsequent Astral Tribulation. However, just because a person was skilled in learning math did not mean they were talented in composing poetry. In a sense, they were two different things and barely helped each other in terms of understanding.

This was the general belief of the world.

Su Mei understood this as well. She had thoroughly comprehended the truths and standards of this grander world, and knew their underappreciated belief towards Intent. While it provided one with exceptional combat prowess, it would only be given a glance when paired with cultivation talent. Yet these two things were exceptionally difficult to obtain in life.

This may be an easily dismissed trait for others, but not Wei Wuyin.

He wanted those with Intent. He needed those with Intent.

This was why there were merely seventeen qualified candidates out of trillions of people! This was how rare Intent outside of the elements were, especially Ethereal Intents!

As an Alchemist, how could he put any importance on cultivation talent? With the Dao of Alchemy, changing someone ’s talent was a matter of if he desired not if he could.

Woosh!

They flew until they reached the Extreme War Mountain. In all the mountains, there was a well-known yet unspoken series of levels to each of them, and they were underground levels that stored prisoners and the core areas of various grand-sized astral arrays. In fact, it was rumored that each of the Extreme Mountains were array flags to a planetary astral array that could obliterate an entire continental flat earth!

This area which housed prisoners in the Extreme War Mountain was called the Hell Layer of War. It was gloomy and dark, buried and guarded. Wei Wuyin and Su Mei arrived at the first level ’s entrance to the Hell Layer of War.

As his pegasus landed, there were two figures awaiting with calm gazes. One of them was a chubby human male with a bald head and sunken eyes, while the other was a demon with a scarred face and skinny body. He didn ’t have any eyes, but there were eye sockets that seemed to resemble the depths of an abyss.

Wei Wuyin and Su Mei leapt off, and the two figures hurried forward with swift steps and bowed.

”Greetings, Heavenly King Wei. ” They were both in synchronized fashion, yet it didn ’t seem practiced. Wei Wuyin calmly smiled as he regarded these two men. They were members of the Knights of Enforcement and they guarded the Hell Layer of War ’s entrance, and their cultivation bases were impressive.

Wei Wuyin calmly swept his gaze on these two, ”He ’s still alive? ”

The two felt a shiver. Despite Wei Wuyin ’s weak cultivation, they felt an instinctive fear in their hearts in his presence. While they were normally tasked with handling criminals, the news that had circulated thus far had deeply shook their hearts. Furthermore, it seemed that in a mere few months, his connections and influence had reached unheard of levels.

They were given orders to await his arrival for several days now, and said to follow all his orders. Now that they could personally see and observe Wei Wuyin, their hearts were unable to stop quaking in shock.

For a human, Wei Wuyin had looks that could bring an Immortal ’s to shame, and he lacked a hint of femininity that most handsome men possessed. His features were defined, symmetric, and honed by an unseen force. When they felt his subdued aura, their spirits felt inferior to him! This affected their mental states immediately, and cold sweat rolled down their backs and forehead.

Wei Wuyin ’s every breath was accompanied by a faint, world-shaking draconic roar that was inaudible to normal ears, but easily picked up by the spiritual sense. His silver eyes glistened with pure mental energies that destabilized the mind ’s of others. It was as if he could read their minds.

It was frightening.

This was the boundless, unintended benefits brought about by the transformation of his Natal Souls when they achieved the Zenith Mortal State, birthed Zenith Essence, and gained the ability of permanence. He felt like a Mortal God!

Shockingly, while others felt this in a clear manner, Su Mei felt entirely undisturbed by his newfound aura from the beginning. Her heartbeat and reaction was leveled, and nothing seemed to affect her spirit and state of mind.

Wei Wuyin glanced at Su Mei who acted completely indifferent and calm, her spiritual sense quietly spread as if on guard against the unknown. Despite that, she was entirely unaffected.

After a brief thought, he turned his gaze back to the two knights.

Only then did they snap out of their daze and hurriedly answered with a slight skip in speech, ”Y-yes! He ’s still alive. ” The demon answered, his eyeless holes were tilted and seemingly staring at Wei Wuyin ’s feet.

Wei Wuyin shook his head and walked forward. The entrance to the Hell Layer of War was deep underground, and it was a steel door etched with various esoteric markings that led to a narrowly descending staircase. Its dim lightning and dark passage made it seem as if one was truly visiting Hell.

”Let ’s go. It ’s time to meet Zuhei. ”
