Chapter 126: Seal Cleaving Talisman
Amongst the 3 half-spirit class artifacts, one was a Crow-black Throwing Knife forged with Blackgold granule, the second was a murky green hook-like artifact forged from a certain demonic beast and finally the last artifact, a copper nail that wasn’t ordinary as well.
That nail appeared like an average short copper nail, yet once it was activated, the tip of the nail would suddenly shoot out a miniscule needle. That tiny needle would pierce in with such swiftness that it completely rendered the opponent defenseless against it.
Without counting any Energy Recovery pellets or random talismans and so on; just the 5 half-spirit class artifact shields, the two half-spirit class divine light screens, and another 4 half-spirit class offensive artifacts, their valuation had already exceeded 20,000 low grade spiritual stones. Once he factored in the 17,000 liquidatable spiritual stones, his profits had amassed to at least 37,000 low grade spiritual stones!
Hence, this was the major reason why many cultivators swarmed in like bees, trying their best to hunt and pillage others……cultivators venturing into Sky Valley all knew this risk and thus would carry with them anything useful that could preserve their lives. Therefore, the killing of any cultivator here produced far greater proceeds than other occasions.
If not for the sake of the Amethyst-Fox rose, If Wei Suo were to withdraw now, he would’ve already harvested a huge fortune already.
Apart from all those items, the tall cultivator even left behind that bottle of Immortal powder; an item truly malicious and venomous in nature.
This powder wasn’t considered a poison medicine that would directly deal fatality to one’s enemies, and similarly wasn’t effective against demonic beasts and even had its toxin properties dispersed after an incense stick worth of time. However, within this very incense stick worth of time, it could cause a cultivator’s body to turn entirely limp and render him totally immobile; unable to activate any true energy and even blinking an eye was completely impossible.
Yet the most crucial property lies in its odourless and colorless nature, making it excruciatingly difficult to detect. Furthermore, since its concoction recipe had vanished from this world, nobody was able to concoct it anymore. Thus, naturally no one was able to create an antidote for it, or any precautionary drug against it…..
Only a Golden Pellet stage cultivator would have the strength to resist the effects of the Immortal powder. Anyone beneath that stage would be easily dispatched of.
In spite of that, exploiting such a potent object would require unique methods similar to what those two villains did. If not, the effects would be mutually destructive to one’s opponent and one’s self.
After prudently storing every artifact and that bottle of Immortal powder, Wei Suo picked up the blue robed cultivator’s map.
The map overview was rather simple, only demarcating several markings on both the southeast of Sky Valley, and indicating the rough distance. This map should’ve been crafted using the cultivator’s own memory of the area. Every single marking indicated the name of a spirit medicine along with the drawing of the signature landmarks in that area. In actual fact, this map was really quite disappointing……
“White Tail Mushroom”
“Purple Cloud Ginseng”
“Seven Stars flower”
“Sky Era Cherry”
The indicated spirit medicines on the map were all extremely rare specimens in this world, and were worth over a thousand spiritual stones. Especially the last one, Sky Era Cherry, which triggered pulses of emotions within Wei Suo and the green gowned old man.
Sky Era Cherry. This spirit medicine resembled that pot of unforgettable Twin-Headed Canine meat stew, it could bolster a cultivator’s physical body and raise one’s speed of cultivation.
Yet after a brief hesitation with his eyes already glittering with gold, Wei Suo cursed resentfully and decided to forsake searching for that Sky Era Cherry. Instead, he changed his objective to the Purple Cloud Ginseng which contained an internal abundance of spiritual energy. A single ginseng was equivalent to 20 Golden Spirit Pellets, which even boasts of a breakneck speed of refining it.
On this piece of map, that Sky Era Cherry was simply too close to the entrance the Heaven’s First sect had sealed for themselves. Although Wei Suo had already experimented with his concealment robe and his concealment artifact to mount sneak attacks, and even executed it with great success, killing off a Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator and another Divine Sea Stage level 5 cultivator; he wasn’t fanatical enough to meddle within the region of a bunch of inner sect and elite disciples from the Heaven’s First Sect all by himself. There was even an elder in the picture……
Moreover, according to the information from Shopkeeper Tian that he had beforehand, the growth area of the Amethyst-Fox rose should be located at the foot of a southeastern mountain in Sky Valley, inside a particular forest. From the image on his map, to advance towards that location, he could still conveniently pass through the location of that Purple Cloud ginseng.
Just after Wei Suo had stored his map and was about to set off; an earth-shaking rumble suddenly boomed within the midst of a mountain in the northeastern region, as though a sudden earthquake was shaking the entire Sky Valley.
Wei Suo had just exited the tree hollow before instantly seeing a flash of lightning, one that appeared like a tremendous dragon. It bolted down from the heavens, crashing down towards the mountain region that even he could not see clearly where from here……
Apart from such a transcending and dazzling lightning; multitudes of terrifying explosions rumbled with flames and rays, followed by thunderous roars of beasts.
Witnessing such a scene caused Wei Suo to involuntarily wipe away his cold sweat. It was evident that a certain superpower had clashed with some demonic beasts. From such a scene, the might of that cultivator and the demonic beasts was completely not something that Wei Suo could fathom or go against.
The explosions of skill techniques rumbled incessantly. Instead, Wei Suo no longer stopped to observe as he scanned for his directions before disappearing into the forest without a sound or aura.
“Save me, is there anyone, please save me.”
The screams of a young lady dressed in violet palace robes pierced the atmosphere, while she flew through a forest concurrently…….This young lady had a pale countenance with her eyes brimming with tears. Her artifact robe had been excessively torn and revealed patches of her fair savoury skin. In addition to that, this young lady had rather gorgeous features and appeared extremely alluring. Her current appearance was indeed pitiable.
After mere seconds, to the left of this young lady shockingly emerged a green shadow.
This green shadow was apparently rather unhurried and content with the current situation. It was astonishingly that arrogant Moonlight Sect disciple that Wei Suo had encountered previously, who’s ambush he’d almost fallen for.
Upon seeing this green robed Moonlight sect disciple, that violet palace robed young lady yelped in shock as she halted. She then begged and pleaded, “This brother, could you grant this young lady your assistance? There’s a cultivator behind that wishes to kill me and steal my artifacts. If this brother can save this young lady, this young lady will definitely repay this gratitude…..”
While she pleaded, the young lady seemed to become somewhat embarrassed over her bare revealing skin. She reached out her hand in an attempt to cover herself. Yet when she raised her hands, her tattered robes seemed to rip slightly further and exposed the upper half of her perfectly rounded, and erected jade breasts. Such an image could simply hook one’s soul and seize one’s soul.
The Moonlight sect disciple gazed at the young lady without a single restraint as he faintly snickered. “Why, are you alone?”
“I have another comrade that has already been slain by that viciously evil cultivator.” The young lady replied with tears staining her beautiful face.
“Since that’s the case, then you can tag along with me. I really wish to see what kind of character is your opponent.” The green robed youth conceitedly proclaimed.
“Many thanks for this brother’s saving grace.” The young lady delightedly ran towards the side of the green robed cultivator.
Hua shua! From the forest behind her, a masculine cultivator quickly charged out; his face was fully bearded and he wore a black scaly artifact robe.
This cultivator was holding a broad, black gold longsword in his hands, with the longsword’s surface flickering with talismanic symbols. This cultivator was shockingly one that trained with flying swords in the path of sword cultivation!
“Say, I was wondering why you weren’t calling out anymore. So you found a gigolo. Why, do you really think you can rely on this gigolo?” the bearded sword cultivator swept his gaze across the green robed youth and snorted.
The green robed youth observed this full beard without a single sound, and similarly made not a single movement. Suddenly, the young lady beside him whose naked skin was mostly leaking out by this time, abruptly turned rigid; her eyes demonstrating an unparalleled shock.
“You!” Simultaneously, that originally confident and braggy bearded cultivator lost his voice in shock……
“This performance isn’t bad, even the girl is rather good looking. Looks like you guys have been utilizing this method to deal with many other cultivators right? You should be able to tell I am a Moonlight sect disciple yet you still dare to act against me, you are really gutsy indeed.” The green robed youth announced with despise as he consecutively released a double sided blazing scarlet turtle shield.
The young lady beside him didn’t seem abnormal at all, except that she seemed to be compelled and stripped of her movements. Only, her eyes revealed the sort of despair that could not be rivalled.
“How did you know!” The bearded cultivator didn’t dare to act out, he demanded with an ashen expression.
“My apologies. I have no interest whatsoever in harvesting spirit medicines, but only harbour great interest towards crossing hands with other cultivators.” The green robed youth issued a sinisterly cold sneer. “The rewards gained from killing a cultivator is much greater. Just like how you guys are my preys. Therefore towards preys, I naturally possess an accurate judgement towards them……”
The bearded cultivator’s face became increasingly uglier as he summoned a Copper shield alongside a scarlet light screen.
“However, I am indeed curious.” The haughty green robed cultivator suddenly spoke out. “You should understand that whatever possessions belonging to a Moonlight sect disciple, are all sealed by the sect. Even if you manage to obtain my possessions, you will very quickly encounter an inner expert of our sect. If you can explain what makes you so confident, I can still choose to spare you and your female companion.”
Probably, the palace robed young lady and the bearded cultivator had a pretty decent relationship. The bearded cultivator wasn’t really experienced and after hearing the green robed youth ushering such an option, he immediately gritted his teeth and asked, “Are your words for real?”
“Why, do you still think you have a choice now?” The green robed cultivator sneered disdainfully as he glanced at the young lady beside him. “Do you want me to first kill her before you decide to speak?”
“Fine! I’ll say.” The bearded cultivator’s expression was incomparably ugly as he explained. “Before I entered here, I found a master talisman crafter to specially craft a Seal Cleaving Talisman, to deal specifically against you load of the Moonlight Sect, Heaven’s First Sect, East Victory, Star-Convening Sect, White Skull Sect and other major sects. It has a unique property that can eradicate the seal placed on your possessions.”
“There is actually such a Seal Cleaving talisman? A master talisman crafter that can destroy the seals of the major sects is truly not one to be trifled with.” The green robed youth’s eyes flashed with amazement and continued, “The value of this Seal Cleaving Talisman truly cannot be underestimated. With such a talisman, I can now exchange pointers with the disciples from the Heaven’s First Sect, Star-Convening Sect and others.”
As his words faded, the green robed youth lifted his head and shot a white beam from his hand; directly surging towards the bearded cultivator.
