Chapter 923: Standards for Disciple Selection
How was one to become a disciple of a Divine Lord? What were the standards that Felicitous Rain Lord demanded in a disciple?
The young elites present were all extremely excited. Everyone that could sit in the gathering was a blessed child of heaven. It was not only limited to the cream of the crop that had participated in the Luo Divine Hall trials and the White Fox clan trials, there were young geniuses who were older, to the point of them being two to three hundred years old.
They had confidence in their own talents, so how could they miss this opportunity that could aid them in reaching the heavens in a single leap?
Felicitous Rain Lord was a truly important figure in the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven. Just him alone was enough to make the Fey Phantasm Sect tremble before him. After all, the Fey Phantasm Sect only had one Divine Lord for themselves. The Divine Lord of the Fey Phantasm Sect would not be afraid of offending an existence at the same level, but what about the people of the Fey Phantasm Sect? They would be easily slaughtered.
The young disciples present were basically from the Luo clan and the White Fox clan. These two factions had close relations and it was just a matter of time before they formed an alliance between themselves. As for the Oracle Fey Empire, its relationship with the two factions was much poorer.
Yu Tianfeng was unhappy with the fact that Felicitous Rain Lord had gone beyond the Oracle Fey Empire and into the entire alliance to search for a disciple. Now, seeing the Luo clan and White Fox disciples so excited as they fantasized about how such a great opportunity had landed in their laps, Yu Tianfeng’s eyes reveal a hint of disdain.
They were just a bunch of toads lusting after a swan’s flesh. Was becoming a Divine Lord’s disciple so easy? What made them even qualify?
My Oracle Fey Empire’s present younger generation is filled with talent. Yet, when so many talents were shown to Felicitous Rain Lord, all he did was give a smile and reserve comment.
The yardstick of a Divine Lord was extremely elevated. But even so, when the best person of my Oracle Fey Empire’s younger generation revealed his Great Dao Dao Domain, he had only made Felicitous Rain Lord nod his head.
It was something worth being proud of to make a Divine Lord nod his head.
Although Felicitous Rain Lord later insisted on expanding the scope of the disciple selection to the entire alliance, Yu Tianfeng was confident that the windfall would ultimately land on the Oracle Fey Empire!
The elites of the other factions were there just to serve as a foil.
“Ambassador, did Felicitous Rain Lord set any standards such that if they are reached would lead to a chance of becoming his disciple?” At this moment, as one of the leading characters of the Luo clan’s younger generation, Prince Crimson Firmament spoke up.
Yu Tianfeng did not put him at heart, even though he was a prince of the Luo clan that would very likely inherit the throne. He glanced at Prince Crimson Firmament for a moment before slowly responding, “Felicitous Rain Lord did not set any standards and he only revealed that he had intentions of taking in a disciple. He did not say if he would definitely accept a disciple. Don’t keep your hopes up. For the greater the hope, the greater the disappointment. However, I believe if any of you were able to condense a nine-leaf Dao fruit, it would not be difficult to become Felicitous Rain Lord’s disciple.”
“Nine-leaf Dao fruit?”
Upon hearing Yu Tianfeng’s words, the crowd was rendered speechless. It was difficult to condense a nine-leaf Dao fruit even for smaller Dao below the five elements or creation Dao. Although the geniuses present were confident of themselves, they did not believe that they had the ability to condense a nine-leaf Dao fruit.
Being able to condense an eight-leaf Dao fruit was a grand event that could stir the entire clan.
However, the possibility of becoming a Divine Lord even if one stepped into the Dao Manifestation realm while possessing a nine-leaf Dao fruit was still rather small.
After all, a Divine Lord enjoyed a long lifespan. He could take in many disciples, but out of these disciples, the possibility of producing a new Divine Lord was extremely minute. It was just too difficult to become a Divine Lord.
“What is that Yu Tianfeng so arrogant for!? It’s just the Imperial Patriarch of the Oracle Fey Empire knowing a Divine Lord, not Yu Tianfeng himself. What nine-leaf Dao fruit? I don’t believe that their Oracle Fey Empire’s geniuses can condense a nine-leaf Dao fruit!”
“Yeah, he’s completely looking down on us by saying the greater the hope, the greater the disappointment. He just doesn’t want us to compete with the Oracle Fey Empire.”
The White Fox clan and Luo clan’s geniuses began to discuss with each other through private transmissions.
Yi Yun understood what was going on, but Yu Tianfeng’s response was reasonable. From Yu Tianfeng’s point of view, the so-called geniuses present were not fit to enter the Divine Lord’s eyes. That was because the Oracle Fey Empire themselves had geniuses that had a chance to come into contact with a Divine Lord.
The opportunity was brought by the Oracle Fey Empire, so the disciple selection was naturally from within the Oracle Fey Empire.
The two matters were announced during the Luo clan royal palace’s grand summoning. The Fey Phantasm Sect was making a comeback and a Divine Lord was taking in a disciple. As the latter brought the allure of an opportunity with it, the repressed mood because of the Fey Phantasm Sect’s invasion had inexplicably been soothed.
If one were to become a disciple of a Divine Lord, was there any need to fear the Fey Phantasm Sect?
After the meeting ended, Yi Yun and Luo Huo’er left the palace together.
“Yi Yun, any comments on Felicitous Rain Lord taking in a disciple?” Luo Huo’er asked. She could tell that compared to many of the younger disciples, Yi Yun appeared much calmer.
“It’s definite that becoming a Divine Lord’s disciple will greatly aid one’s martial path, but to not even know the standards, it would still be difficult to become a Divine Lord’s disciple. I plan on entering reclusion once I get back, taking a few months to digest the insights gained from the Primordial Space.”
“Another reclusion?” Luo Huo’er was somewhat stunned. “You have already been in reclusion for eighteen years. Why more?”
“I have some insights that need some honing when used in actual combat.” Yi Yun answered.
Luo Huo’er nodded, “I think there’s a need for actual combat as well. You missed a lot of the trials at the Luo Divine Hall, so now it’s time to make up for it. I’ll request Mother to let you use the Heavenly Slaughter Array. The Heavenly Slaughter Array is meant to train young elites’ actual combat power. Cultivating in the Heavenly Slaughter Array might allow your strength to increase by leaps and bounds.”
“Yes, that would be good as well.” Yi Yun was immediately pleased as he nodded.
“Then, if there’s any important news regarding Felicitous Rain Lord’s disciple selection, I’ll get someone to inform you so that you can exit reclusion early. Don’t miss out on the Felicitous Rain Lord’s selection. I have a lot of confidence in you.” Luo Huo’er said as she grinned at Yi Yun. Taking Yi Yun along, they flew towards Fenghua Palace
As Luo Huo’er and Yi Yun were traveling to meet Empress Xuan, a spirit cruiser was silently traversing through deep space outside the Luo clan’s royal capital.
The grade of this spirit cruiser was slightly poorer than the spirit cruiser that the Luo clan used to travel to the Primordial Empyrean Heaven.
The Primordial Empyrean Heaven spirit cruiser used by the Luo clan was the vessel belonging to a Supremacy or Emperor Luo, but the owner of this spirit cruiser was just a young man.
At this moment, the young man was standing on the bow, looking into the far and deep cosmos. Far away, a land mass with nebulae shrouding it floated in the darkness. As the spirit cruiser coasted, it slowly closed the distance.
“That is the Luo clan’s royal capital, right?”
Beside the young man was a beautiful woman. She wore a veil that covered her enchanting body. Her skin was not snow-white, but it had a malty gloss, allowing her to exude a healthy beauty.
“Yes, this is the first leg of our trip, and it is also the most important leg. Felicitous Rain Lord did not give the standard required for me to become his disciple, so I’ll create a standard for Felicitous Rain Lord.”
“I’ll make Felicitous Rain Lord pay attention to me.” The young man said confidently. The girl beside him gently bowed and said, “Young master will definitely become Felicitous Rain Lord’s disciple.”
