Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 9: I Need To Transmigrate Again?

"I really don't understand you. It could’ve been resolved so easily..." In the dim light of the hotel's basement, Gu Nian carried an unconscious Lin Feng with one hand while she spoke to Gu Nan helplessly.

Gu Nan wasn't in the mood to pay attention to her at the moment. He was focused on the “Evil God Temple” in his mind. A line of small words slowly emerged above it.

「Event completed. Total Evil Value obtained: 5」

Five!

Gu Nan almost jumped up in excitement. The maximum Evil Value reward the Evil God Temple arranged for this event was five, and he actually obtained it all!

It wasn't easy at all to get the maximum Evil Value reward.

As a veteran player of 《Evil God Cultivation》for over ten years, Gu Nan understood the difficulty of events and dungeons all too well.

It was so hard that even if he earned the maximum Evil Value reward only once every ten tries, then he’d be burning some incense in celebration. As for dungeon side quests, he had never seen anything higher than a 95% completion rate.

The system became even more outrageous after transforming into the Evil God Temple—killing an entire family only gave one Evil Value...

Now that Gu Nan earned five at once, his Evil Value suddenly increased to 16, and the Tier 3 advancement requirement was nothing more than... Alright, fine, it needs an Evil Value of 50.

However, having the Evil Value exceed 15 meant that Gu Nan’s remaining 200 points could finally come in handy...

"Hey, what are you staring blankly for?" Gu Nian patted Gu Nan's arm and asked in confusion.

"Ah?" Gu Nan raised his head in a daze. He was still immersed in joy, thinking about what he should use the 200 points for.

Gu Nian rolled her eyes, pointed at the Lin Feng in her hands, and said, "Let's go. Mo Bai's tomb is up ahead."

"You can go ahead. Don't forget about me if you find anything good." Gu Nan casually took out the Dragon Jade and threw it to her.

This time it was Gu Nian's turn to be dumbfounded.

She thought that Gu Nan would use countless possible methods to give her the Dragon Jade, with various conditions or prices attached, but she had never thought that he would throw it over like throwing an eraser.

In fact, Gu Nan wasn’t interested in the Dragon Jade or the Sword Demon's relics at all. He just wanted to earn a little more Evil Value.

Now that the event was finished, what use was the Dragon Jade?

Gu Nan's consciousness had already sunk into the Evil God Temple, and his figure once again appeared on the dark purple throne, overlooking the empty palace.

「Evil Value exceeds 15. The equipment store can be accessed. Please select the first equipment page to unlock」

>「Weapons」

Gu Nan, an old hand at this, chose without hesitation.

Before players completed the First Round and reached Tier 6, the game would basically still be in tutorial mode, teaching players how to develop themselves. Included among these was the Tier 2 tutorial, which taught players about equipment selection.

There were three equipment pages in total—weapons, armor, and accessories. Players can choose to unlock one equipment page when their Evil Value reaches 15, 30, and 45 respectively.

The order to unlocking each page was generally determined by the player’s specific advancement direction. As an agility type player, Gu Nan needed weapons the most.

Red Flame Sword, Rule Breaker, Nine Heavens Divine Flame Claws, Splitting Axe... Familiar names appeared in front of Gu Nan one after another, and he quickly scrolled down the list and promptly found the target he had already decided on.

Four Element Crossbow!

「Tier 2 crossbow weapon. The user does not need to load arrows. Can generate four types of elemental arrows—earth, water, wind, and fire—based on the user's needs. Costs 180 points」

As a veteran player, Gu Nan understood the advantages and disadvantages of an agility type Evil God.

Because he didn’t choose the strength or physique advancement routes, his attack wasn’t high. Otherwise, it would be possible for an Evil God to fight over three Innate Realm experts at once.

And because he didn’t choose the spirit advancement direction, he wouldn’t be able to get any skills before Tier 3. Thus, his fighting style would be very simple and straightforward, making it easy for enemies to target his weaknesses.

His advantage was that he was very nimble, able to both fight and run. Not even a Tier 3 powerhouse may be able to catch up to his ultra-fast movement speed.

It was precisely due to this characteristic that Gu Nan chose the Four Element Crossbow for himself.

Crossbow weapons were very easy to use, and the firing range could be adjusted at will, so it was very flexible. The most important thing was that with long-range means and Gu Nan's speed, he finally had the ability to use the kite tactic[1].

‘If I confront the dozen or so Innate Realm experts now, I’m confident that I can kite them to death within 15 minutes!’

After a while, Gu Nian returned to the basement with a relieved smile on her face. Lin Feng had long since disappeared, and his ending probably wasn't good.

"Looks like you found what you were looking for." Gu Nan couldn't help but smile when he saw her appearance.

"That’s right." Gu Nian’s heroic face smiled generously. "Since I found that item, this trip was worth it."

Gu Nan gave a noncommittal smile. "Well then, remember to call me next time if something good pops up."

The more profound and long-lasting an event, the easier it was to earn Evil Value. Of course Gu Nan was unwilling to miss this “Evil Value ATM.”

"Hey, wait..." Gu Nian hurriedly stopped him.

"Something else?"

"Based on your cultivation technique, you should've obtained some ancient cultivator’s inheritance, right? How much do you know about the outside world?"

Gu Nan stared blankly. ‘Isn't this a parallel version of Earth? Why is there still an outside world?’

"You mean… an extraterrestrial galaxy?" He considered his tone and tentatively asked.

Gu Nian shook her head lightly. "Feng City, together with over a dozen nearby cities, are only inside this Langya World. The Myriad Heavens Universe has 33 major Heavens, 72 minor Realms, and countless smaller Worlds like this one underneath the Realms."

Contrary to expectations, Gu Nan became calmer now. This sounded like the fantasy novel routine he was familiar with!

"You mean, our Langya World is nothing more than a small World, so if I want to continue leveling up, I have to switch maps?"

"That’s basically it... But why does it sound so strange when you say it?"

"It's nothing strange. It's all common sense." Gu Nan waved his hand, his expression one of profound mystery.

Gu Nian stared at him like he was an idiot and finally sighed as she began to explain the structure of the Myriad Heavens Universe.

According to Gu Nian, she came from one of the 72 Realms—Star Realm. She reincarnated into this small World to find a secret treasure of her school.

She explained all this to Gu Nan because she wanted to ask if he would like to travel to Star Realm together with her.

"Return to the larger map together? How do you return? Cut through the void with a finger?" Gu Nan's brain spouted useless thoughts.

Gu Nian's expression grew dark. She felt that her brother was originally a normal person, but how come he became an idiot after learning about the secrets of the Myriad Heavens Universe?

"Unless it’s a Void Cutter Realm powerhouse, no one can break the barrier of the worlds... We can only rely on reincarnation if we want to travel between the two worlds."
