Beastmaster of the Ages - Chapter 1613
Tianming returned to the Violetglory Star’s wondersky realm and appeared in his own private space.
“Big Brother!” Feiling had been spectating from the pavilion, so she knew that Tianming had already left the Astraldome. Hence, she had known he was about to arrive soon. “Why didn’t you continue challenging the Myriadeyes Wonder?” She pulled his elbow, looking at him with sparkling eyes.
“I missed you. I couldn’t stand one day without my daily dose of Feiling,” Tianming said.
“Hmph, I don’t believe you.” Though she said that, Feiling was happy inside.
“Ling’er, could you all hear me when I asked about the Mysterium Cluster?” Tianming asked.
“Yes, very clearly,” Feiling replied.
“I wonder what the imperium and dynasty will think after hearing about it,” Tianming wondered.
“I think there won’t be much reaction. They’ve had the wondersky realm for so long. If you could find out so easily, I’m sure the higher-ups already know. They have an answer in their heart already.”
“Makes sense. Oh well, I already gave them a reminder. Let’s go out and take a look.” They left the private space. The wondersky realm was still in a commotion, and many people hadn’t left yet.
“Is Ye Chen or Li Tianming stronger? Make your bets!”
“We’ll have to use their next fight to find out.”
There were people discussing who was stronger everywhere. The Mysterium Cluster, on the other hand, wasn’t a hot topic.
Still doubtful, Tianming returned to Violetpeak. He woke up in the room with Feiling. The heavenly loci were very close to each other, so the first thing he saw was her warm smile. Originally, he had intended to pull her up along with him when he stood up, but when their fingers touched, frost began spreading on their hands.
Tianming reluctantly let go, as the frost was also uncomfortable for Feiling.
“This is so annoying, Big Brother.” At least before, they could still hug, but now they could only look at each other.
“It’s fine.” Tianming didn’t like this, but he was more worried about whether it posed a threat to Feiling’s life.
“I’ll go out first.”
As expected, Shengui and Gong Xiong were outside Violetpeak.
“Sir Genius, why didn’t you continue with the third level of the Tranquil Battlefield?” Gong Xiong asked with a laugh.
“I feel the chances are a bit low right now. I’m not anxious, I’ll wait for when my chances are higher.”
“Good, good, haste makes waste.”
Shengui pulled at Tianming’s clothes. “How’d you find your fight with Ye Chen today? Can you handle him in the real world?” he gingerly asked, clearly very worried.
“It’s not good to say, but he has so many sovereign beasts while I only have one.” Tianming regretfully shook his head. Actually, he was pretty confident inside.
“Really? That’s a problem. I didn’t expect him to be able to use one manna imperius for five beasts. It’s like creating four manna imperius from nothing!” Shengui said, vexed.
“Ye Chen’s reputation is on the rise again. They say he’s your equal now,” Gong Xiong also felt a headache.
“Not much we can do. We’ll just continue competing. Unless.…” Tianming didn’t continue. “Never mind, it won’t work out.”
“It’s not good to say,” Tianming awkwardly said.
“Talk to Granddaddy Gui here, what’s embarrassing?” Shengui said with a roll of his eyes.
“The Violetcloud Imperium still has one manna imperius. I’ll have much better chances with another sovereign beast. But, I just got one already.” Tianming shook his head.
“True. The Pentarchy won’t agree for you to get another one. They won’t even negotiate,” Shengui said.
Tianming was even more aware of the difficulty now. “Then it’s fine.”
“We’ll take it slowly. You haven’t lost yet. If you can make even bigger waves in the Astraldome, it might really be possible,” Shengui said.
“If?” Tianming asked.
“If you beat a genius of the same age as you from a deific class nova source in the Mysterium Cluster.”
“Deific class? What’s that?” Tianming asked. Nova sources had ranks?
“Deific class nova source is the highest class of nova source in the Mysterium Cluster. They’re a hundred times the size of our nova source.”
After such a long history, they had people who’d entered the third, and even fourth level of the Tranquil Battlefield, so they had even more understanding of the Mysterium Cluster than Tianming.
“One hundred!?” Tianming was stunned silly. Wasn’t that one hundred Orderias too? How massive was that? That let him understand that the gold and black star he had seen in the Grand-Orient Sword’s colorless sword might really exist. The water droplets from its wave had become nova sources.
“Yes. The astralscape uses the size of nova sources to classify them. There’s the heliacal class, skypiercer class, and deific class. Ours is a heliacal class, the lowest. Ten times our size is a skypiercer class. There’s a fundamental difference between the two. And a nova source that’s a hundred times larger than ours is the deific class. We can’t even imagine their vastness,” Shengui explained.
“If those are the first three classes of nova sources, is there anything higher?” Tianming asked.
“Who knows? The Mysterium Cluster is already the strongest place we know of, and deific class is the highest we know they have.”
“Have you seen it before?” Tianming asked.
“What could I have seen? All I’ve seen is our star and an astral hole on the path to destruction. For anything else, I have to use my imagination.”
As expected, no one had seen it. The Violetglory Star and Orderia were both in some corner of the astralscape.
Tianming considered it. “The Mysterium Cluster has deific class nova sources, so the existences there should be the peak of the astralscape’s races. Like experts and geniuses of the divine wondersky race. So you mean to say that if I beat those geniuses, I may get another manna imperius?” Tianming looked him right in the eye.
