Library Of Heaven's Path Chapter 1700
Translator: StarveCleric Editor: Millman97
Whipping out a brush, Zhang Xuan quickly drew out his surroundings in the air and wrote out the words ‘This is where the Prime Hall lies’ in the eight directions.
Then, he tapped on the painting with his finger.
He quickly checked the Library of Heaven’s Path, but no book had been compiled.
“…” Zhang Xuan’s face darkened.
No book had been compiled. In other words, the Library of Heaven’s Path would be ineffective in helping him find the location of the Prime Hall!
This was the first time that he had encountered such a situation.
The Temple of Confucius is hidden in a folded space, and over the past tens of thousands of years, there hasn’t been a single seer who has been able to divine its location. Most likely, Kong shi has used some kind of means to conceal it from view!
There were countless experts among mankind and the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe alike. The Great Codex of Spring and Autumn, which Kong shi had left behind, was an artifact desired by countless people, but its whereabouts remained a mystery even after the passing of tens of thousands of years. Clearly, some kind of anti-divination technique had been cast over it to conceal it from the sights of the heavens.
As such, it was inevitable that the Library of Heaven’s Path was unable to divine its whereabouts.
The extent of the capabilities of the Library of Heaven’s Path was limited by the scope of the heavens. Where the heavens were unable to reach, the Library of Heaven’s Path would be rendered powerless, too.
Clearly, the Temple of Confucius was such an existence.
With a tap of his finger, Zhang Xuan took out the Prime Amulet and asked, “Little Amulet, where do I have to go to reach the Prime Hall?”
Since his other idea did not work, he could at least count on the Prime Hall!
The Prime Hall flew into the air and wiggled its body a little before replying, “I can only sense the Prime Hall when we are within twenty li of the Temple of Confucius. From where we are now… I’m not too sure…”
It was able to sense the location of the Temple of Confucius, but there was a limit to its range of detection. If it was too far away from the destination, it would not be able to sense its presence.
“Alright then. If you notice anything, send me a telepathic message right away…” Seeing that even his last idea was not working, Zhang Xuan sighed helplessly.
As someone who wielded great powers in the Master Teacher Continent, he did not think that he would end up being so helpless in this folded space.
“Noted! However, if you don’t choose your direction wisely in the Temple of Confucius, you could end up straying off path,” the Prime Amulet advised.
“Indeed. I have to pay careful attention to where I head to. I can’t afford to act recklessly in here…” Zhang Xuan nodded contemplatively. A moment later, his eyes lit up as he exclaimed, “Right!”
“Do you have an idea in mind?” the Prime Amulet asked.
“The Dragonbone Divine Spear!” Zhang Xuan chuckled softly as he whipped out the Dragonbone Divine Spear once more.
“Is it able to discern directions in here?” The Prime Amulet felt like it had just taken a heavy blow. “Are you certain that it’ll be able to find the Temple of Confucius when even I am unable to do so?”
It was an artifact created for the sole purpose of finding the Temple of Confucius! If it was unable to find the Temple of Confucius, no one else should be able to! What was the point of taking out the Dragonbone Divine Spear at this point in time?
In the next moment, the Prime Amulet saw Zhang Xuan flicking his wrist, and the Dragonbone Divine Spear began spinning furiously in the air.
It took a while before it came to a halt. Pointing in the direction that the Dragonbone Divine Spear was facing, Zhang Xuan nodded. “Un, let’s head that way then!”
After which, he began making his way over with a confident look on his face.
“…” The Prime Amulet.
“…” The Dragonbone Divine Spear.
They had both been wondering what kind of ingenious method their master was going to resort to, but who could have expected him to simply bet everything on dumb luck?
You are here to find the Temple of Confucius, not to spin the Wheel of Fortune!
Ignoring the stifled duo, Zhang Xuan returned the Prime Amulet to his storage ring and wrapped the Dragonbone Divine Spear back around his waist before marching forward with widened strides.
Since he had no clue where he should be heading, he might as well just start walking around and explore the area.
The folded space was rich with spiritual energy, so Zhang Xuan did not feel any fatigue advancing forward. Soon enough, he arrived before a stream. Taking a closer look, Zhang Xuan could not help but exclaim in awe.
What was flowing in the stream was not water but spirit essence!
In other words, the spiritual energy in the air was so concentrated that it could easily condense into water and form a stream!
The saint beasts on the Cloudmist Ridge had once gone on a rampage over their disappeared spirit essence! He did not think that it would be so readily available in here.
Even though spirit essence of such a tier was no longer useful to Zhang Xuan, his spendthrift nature still kicked. He could not bring himself to leave such good stuff lying around, so he collected it all into the Myriad Anthive Nest, making sure not to waste even a single droplet.
Traversing across what used to be a stream, he marched on ahead and found many medicinal herbs. Even the youngest of these herbs was at least at a thousand years old. The oldest one that he found was tens of thousands of years old. Even from afar, he could already smell the deep fragrance of the mature medicinal herbs.
It’s truly a world filled with treasures… Zhang Xuan thought as he excitedly picked a dozen stalks.
The Temple of Confucius sure was an amazing place. It was as if treasures were littered everywhere!
It was no wonder all of the experts of the Master Teacher Continent wanted to enter it. Dense spiritual energy, high concentration of ‘teacher’s milieu’, and the readily available treasures… these were the ingredients required for one’s cultivation to advance swiftly. With them, a cultivator would be able to avoid struggling so desperately outside
Ding ding ding!
In the midst of his exploration, Zhang Xuan suddenly heard the clanging of metal in the distance. Without any hesitation, he dashed in that direction.
Before arriving at the source of the metallic clanging, he had already altered his appearance.
As the head of the Three Premier Clans and the Sanctum of Sages, there was probably no one who did not know of him by now. Furthermore, as he had once been a wanted fugitive of the Master Teacher Pavilion, it was not difficult for one to learn of his appearance. Considering how sensitive his identity was, it would be best for him to take caution.
Circling around a hill, Zhang Xuan finally arrived at the source of the metallic clanging. Five men and two women were currently surrounding a beast, battling it.
It was a Goldface Skywolf, blessed with the strength of an Aureate Body realm expert at birth. Once mature, it would gain strength comparable to an Intuitive Impulse realm expert.
Of its seven opponents, three were in the Aureate Body realm whereas the remaining four were in the Intuitive Impulse realm. They were not dressed in master teacher robes, and there was no emblem on their master teacher clothes either. It was hard to tell their allegiance.
Under the combined assault of the seven experts, the Goldface Skywolf was forced to retreat time and time again. It was in a disadvantageous position, being severely outnumbered.
Normally, beasts would wield far greater fighting prowess than cultivators of the same cultivation realm. However, knowing that the Temple of Confucius would be fraught with dangers, the cultivators who had come over had brought many treasures along. They tossed all of their artifacts over as if they did not cost money at all. At the same time, it seemed like the Goldface Skywolf was lacking in battle experience.
As a result, it took only a few instants for the Goldface Skywolf to be severely wounded.
Seeing that the Goldface Skywolf was finally coming to its limits, a young man amid the crowd bellowed, “Follow my command. We’ll launch an attack simultaneously!”
The eyes of the other members of the group lit up. The next moment, all sorts of weapons darted toward the Goldface Skywolf.
Under the relentless assault of the cultivators, the Goldface Skywolf finally succumbed and dropped dead on the ground.
“We have managed to kill it!”
The group collectively heaved a sigh of relief. They were just about to celebrate when they heard footsteps, and they hurriedly raised their weapons once more.
“Who are you?” a member of the group asked warily.
“I’m just passing by the area,” Zhang Xuan replied.
The members of the group eyed Zhang Xuan suspiciously, seemingly fearing that he would steal the Goldface Skywolf that they had just killed.
Seeing their expressions, Zhang Xuan swiftly understood what was going on and waved his hand. “I am uninterested in that beast. You don’t have to be so wary of me!”
Considering how he had appeared a moment after they slew the Goldface Skywolf, it was no wonder they would be doubtful of his intentions.
“Humph! I doubt you would dare anyway…”
Seeing that Zhang Xuan was only at the Aureate Body realm, the crowd heaved a sigh of relief. The young man who had issued the order earlier turned his gaze back to the carcass of the Goldface Skywolf. With a flick of his wrist, he took out a sharp dagger and began dismantling the carcass.
It did not take long for him to retrieve the Skywolf’s fangs and claws.
“I played the greatest role in killing this fellow over here, so I believe none of you will have any objections to me taking the fangs and claws, right? Feel free to divide whatever’s left among the rest of you!” the young man said.
