Qin Nan remained calm.
Even if the son of their Patriarch was here, Qin Nan would not hesitate to kill him if they tried to kill him first, let alone the elders of the Heaven Highness Clans.
"The people of the three Heaven Highness Clans will soon know what happened. I can't afford to stay here any longer," Qin Nan murmured.
He vanished into thin air following a flicker. The crowd in the Imperial Courtyard burst into an uproar as they collected their thoughts.
As everyone thought, the three Heaven Highness Clans soon learned the incident and were enraged.
Powerful cultivators came from far away to investigate the incident.
However, regardless of how capable the three Heaven Highness Clans were, they had no clue Qin Nan was behind it.
A few hours later, Qin Nan appeared on a mountain range that was emitting an ancient aura.
He scanned his surroundings with the Immortal Eyes of the Divine God of Battle and saw many cultivators training and searching for fortunate encounters. None of them had reached the Nine Heavens Supreme Realm.
Qin Nan soon spotted a hidden valley. He set up various forbidding auras to conceal it.
"Let's see if there's anything special about those two drops of Supreme Blood Essence."
Qin Nan took out the jade jar and burned it with the Dao-Melting Immortal Flames.
A while later, two wisps of pure energy burst out from it and entered Qin Nan's body.
However, the energy was a lot weaker than Qin Nan's supreme force. It was nowhere enough to improve Qin Nan's cultivation.
"Mm? Is this the power of the Zheng Clan and Wu Clan's lineage?" Qin Nan soon raised his brows.
He noticed two mystical forces surging through his veins.
"The power of their lineage is quite unusual indeed. It might unleash a terrifying force if I could accumulate more of them."
Qin Nan withdrew his gaze after observing the energy for a little longer.
He was a little curious about the lineage of the seven Heaven Highness Clans. After all, he had no chance of obtaining them as an outsider, let alone refining and controlling them.
Even when an outsider was officially recruited by the clan with the Cleansing Ritual, they could only absorb a tiny amount of the energy. The difference was too huge compared to those from the clans.
However, the Ownerless Heaven Pattern in his Divine Sense suddenly unleashed a tremendous glow followed by an absorbing force. It forcibly absorbed the power of the two lineages.
Qin Nan was startled.
Following it, the Ownerless Heaven Pattern's light dimmed as two weak yet mystical forces floated out of the Ownerless Heaven Pattern and entered Qin Nan's body.
The two wisps of energy merged with Qin Nan's force perfectly. His aura shifted slightly.
Even though the difference on the surface was extremely tiny, it was extremely obvious to Qin Nan.
The Ownerless Heaven Pattern was able to absorb the lineage power of the Heaven Highness Clans and convert them into an energy which I can absorb?" Qin Nan's eyes flickered with astonishment.
If that was the case, once he gathered enough Supreme Blood Essence, wouldn't he be able to claim the power of the lineage of all seven Heaven Highness Clans?
"Wait a second, I was able to detain cultivators in the Ownerless Heaven Pattern to claim their Arts of Dao Seeking! Does that mean I can detain the disciples of the seven Heaven Highness Clans in the Ownerless Heaven Pattern to claim the power of their lineage?"
Qin Nan's eyes erupted into flames.
The Ownerless Heaven Pattern had given him a huge surprise!
It was meaningless for him to detain cultivators and acquire their Arts of Dao Seeking since he had already refined the Dao Pattern. He could no longer add other Arts of Dao Seeking to it!
However, if he could collect the lineage of the seven Heaven Highness Clans and achieve the Lineage Reversion or even the Lineage Transcension, his strength would improve significantly!
Besides, the seven Heaven Highness Clans were not the only clans with the power of lineage. The Shidao Tribe, the Tribe of Immortal Spirits, the Wengu Tribe, and other ancient tribes too had their own power. Qin Nan could collect them all with the Ownerless Heaven Pattern!
"I'll have to try it on the disciples of the seven Heaven Highness Clans or the Nine Heavens Supremes of the ancient tribes."
Qin Nan squinted.
How terrifying would his strength be once he collected the lineage of the seven Heaven Highness Clans or the lineage of the ancient tribes?
Qin Nan soon shook his head to calm his thoughts.
It was just a rough speculation. He would have to try it to know whether it was going to work.
"There are still some days left until it's time to go to the Dao Seeking Land. I'll wait here," Qin Nan sat with his legs crossed and started cultivating.
A few days were gone fairly quickly.
Qin Nan's eyes sprang open on the eleventh day. He looked into the sky.
He discovered a magnificent existence watching him. He had a strange feeling about it.
Following it, a mysterious force descended from the sky and landed on the back of his hand.
Qin Nan felt his hand burning as a strange rune slowly appeared with an indescribable aura.
"The seal that would lead me to the Dao Seeking Land..."
Qin Nan observed the seal with the Immortal Eyes of the Divine God of Battle.
Meanwhile, an unexpected change took place.
The Nine Dragon Seal in his soul suddenly emitted a chaotic glow and unleashed its power onto the seal.
"Mm?" Qin Nan frowned.
The seal slowly faded and eventually disappeared.
Qin Nan was startled.
What just happened?
Why did the Nine Dragon Seal absorb it?
"Perhaps the Nine Dragon Seal is tied to the Dao Seeking Land. It's fine, I should head to the Dao Seeking Land and see what's going on."
Qin Nan shook his head. He made up his mind and tried activating the seal.
Even though the seal had been absorbed, he should be able to use it still.
The valley remained silent as nothing had happened.
As time gradually passed, Qin Nan began to twist his lips widely.
