A level five Divine Sea Stage cultivator with a powerful treasure talisman and an imitation magical treasure was actually killed by a level three Divine Sea Stage cultivator.
Both Nangong Yuqing and Ye Guwei felt that this was simply like a dream. However, the remaining Fireball Talismans that they held had shown that this was the truth. Those Fireball Talismans were still emitting heat.
At this moment, the only thing Wei Suo was thinking was the brass-like imitation magical treasure that Lin Daoyi held in his hand. That imitation magical treasure that appeared to be extremely ordinary looking was much more powerful than even a level two treasure talisman. It was most definitely worth a lot of Spiritual Stones. Furthermore, the most important aspect was that such an item was not something that can be found in the markets easily. Even if one possessed a large amount of Spiritual Stones on hand, it would still be hard for one to be able to find such an item to purchase.
In his heart, Wei Suo was drooling for this imitation magical treasure. However, although he had killed a lot of demonic beasts before, it was the first time that he had killed a human. Although he wanted it extremely badly, seeing Lin Daoyi’s corpse, he didn’t dare to walk over and pick up that brass-like item.
“Big brother Ye, I suspect that this guy might be feigning death. The imitation magical treasure that he held in his hand is extremely powerful. How about you go over there and take that thing from him first. We will stand by and watch him attentively. If he dares to do anything, we shall feed him another Fireball Talisman.” After Wei Suo thought for a bit, he said to the simple and honest big guy Ye Xiaozheng beside him.
Nangong Yuqing who felt that Wei Suo was more and more extraordinary, was stunned by Wei Suo’s words. She almost started laughing. That Lin Daoyi’s head had already turned into a roasted sweet potato, if he could still feign death like that, then that Lin Daoyi would truly be amazing. Earlier, when Nangong Yuqing saw that Wei Suo had become mysterious, she had thought that he might be an expert that had feigned himself to be a low level cultivator to wander the world. However, now that she looked at Wei Suo, Nangong Yuqing was able to feel right away that this Wei Suo was an authentic low level cultivator. It seemed that it was very likely that it was the first time for this guy to kill someone. When he spoke, he didn’t even dare to look at Lin Daoyi.
“He ought to be truly dead.” Ye Xiaozheng was truly honest. After hearing Wei Suo’s words, he nodded, walked over and carefully examined Lin Daoyi. After that, he turned to Wei Suo and said.
Wei Suo did not even bother to look at Lin Daoyi’s corpse. He immediately waved his hand. “Since this is the case, then big brother Ye, please carefully search him. See what he might have on him.”
“Okay.” Ye Xiaozheng began to carefully search Lin Daoyi’s corpse.
After a while of careful searching, Ye Xiaozheng found two black leather bags by Lin Daoyi’s waist. Other than these, he did not find anything else on his body. Ye Xiaozheng also pried open Lin Daoyi’s left and right hands. After he took the brass-like imitation magical treasure and the dark cyan colored treasure talisman, he returned back to Wei Suo’s location. After he returned to Wei Suo’s side, he directly handed all of these items to Wei Suo.
“Fucking hell, it’s actually broken!”
When Wei Suo received the items Ye Xiaozheng handed to him, he was extremely happy. However, when he inspected the brass-like imitation magical treasure, he immediately grew depressed.
He was able to clearly see now that this item looked like a tiny square-shaped brick. It was very heavy and seemed to be made of pure gold. There was no design on the back of it at all. However, on the front side were eight little sword-like strange symbols. Merely, there were several deep cracks running through this item from front to back. The symbols on it did not shine at all. It was clear that it had been completely damaged and was useless now.
As for the dark cyan colored jade talisman that was able to create pretty strong defensive wind walls, it still had some water-like light shining through it. There was a strange dark cyan colored line running through it. It seemed that it could be used a couple more times.
“What might be in these?”
The two black leather bags that Lin Daoyi carried with him was extremely tough and durable. The opening of the bags were tied together by a black band made of the same material. Wei Suo easily opened one of the bags.
“Wahahaha!” Once he poured the items from this leather bag out, Wei Suo’s eyes immediately started to shine.
This leather bag was actually filled with Spiritual Stones!
Although it appeared that there were only ten or so Spiritual Stones, but among these ten or so Spiritual Stones, other than the eight or nine of them that emitted a light green color that signified that they were Low Quality Spiritual Stones, there were three Spiritual Stones the same size as Low Quality Spiritual Stones; however, they emitted a light yellow radiance. It was evident that these Spiritual Stones contained more Spiritual Energy than Low Quality Spiritual Stones.
This sort of light yellow Spiritual Stones with more abundant Spiritual Energy, were Mid Quality Spiritual Stones. A single Mid Quality Spiritual Stone was equivalent to ten Low Quality Spiritual Stones.
That was to say, in this black leather bag that Lin Daoyi carried with him contained about thirty eight or nine Low Quality Spiritual Stones.
To see this many Spiritual Stones, it had swept away Wei Suo’s depression when he first saw the damage to the imitation magical treasure. “Brother Lin Daoyi, you’re truly a great person. To have this many Spiritual Stones on you, you better have something good in this bag too.” Beaming with joy, Wei Suo opened the second leather bag.
“Energy Recovery Pellets!”
The first thing that came out was a white colored pellet medicine bottle. When Wei Suo opened the cap of the bottle, a familiar scent spread out. Wei Suo started to smile even more brilliantly.
Energy Recovery Pellets were Pellet Medicines that were formed through the concentration of the liquid Energy Recovery Medicine. In terms of its ability to rapidly recover one’s True Elemental Energy, it was about the same as an Energy Recovery Medicine. However, its efficacy was three to four times as powerful as the Energy Recovery Medicine. With Wei Suo’s current martial prowess of level three Divine Sea Stage in the Purple Mystic True Technique, it would only take him a bottle and a half of Energy Recovery Medicine to completely replenish his exhausted True Elemental Energy. However, if he was to use this sort of Energy Recovery Pellet, he would only need half a pellet to recover his True Elemental Energy.
A single Energy Recovery Pellet cost two Low Quality Spiritual Stones. There were four emerald green colored Energy Recovery Pellets in Lin Daoyi’s pellet bottle. For Lin Daoyi to place this pellet bottle in the black leather bag, it meant that he would generally only be willing to use Energy Recovery Medicines and not the Energy Recovery Pellets.
“A level five Divine Sea Stage brother does indeed possess a substantial amount of property. Even with all this, he still came out to try to murder others for their property? Eh, what is this?” In addition to the pellet bottle that contained four Energy Recovery Pellets, there were also two cyan colored jade talismans and a single piece of broken cloth in the black leather bag.
The two small cyan colored jade talismans were extremely bright. Other than a tiny Taiji sign, there were no other designs on these jade talismans. As for that piece of broken cloth, there were ancient handwritings that were about the names of some places, mountains, rivers and creeks. It seemed to be a piece of map.
“Taiji pattern… cyan colored jade talismans with the Taiji pattern on them, haha, I understand now. These two jade talismans ought to be both the offensive and defensive Taiji Jade Talismans that were able to cast the Taiji Defense and Taiji Attack!” Wei Suo examined the two jade talismans and then started laughing like a professional.
Hearing how Wei Suo said this confidently, Nangong Yuqing was finally unable to contain herself anymore and burst into laughter.
“What’s going on? Could it be that these are the Taiji Jade Talismans?” Confused, Wei Suo looked to Nangong Yuqing.
Nangong Yuqing stopped her laughter with a great amount of difficulty. She nodded her head and said. “These are the Heavenly Fate Pavilion’s Cyan Jade Technique Talismans. They ought to record the techniques that the Heavenly Fate Pavilion sells. As for the Taiji symbol, it was the sign of the Heavenly Fate Pavilion.”
“Ah?” Wei Suo’s face grew red. He became a bit flabbergasted.
The Heavenly Fate Pavilion was a large market square at the Spirit Peak City’s southern city district. It would frequently auction off some good items. Merely, to Wei Suo, those kinds of places were too expensive. Thus, Wei Suo did not know the sign of the Heavenly Fate Pavilion at all. Thinking that he had actually thought the sign of the Heavenly Fate Pavilion to be a technique talisman’s diagram drawing, Wei Suo felt extremely ashamed.
