The two distinctive items that Wei Suo had brought forth to the green gowned old man were the piece of map and the two pieces of Cyan Jade Technique Talisman that was sold by the Heavenly Fate Pavilion.
Since Lin Daoyi had saved this piece of map in his black sack, it shouldn’t be something useless. What was written on the map were all ancient writings. Thus, Wei Suo believed that the green gowned old man, another antique, might be able to understand those writings.
“Dark Wind Mountain… Peach Lake…” Sure enough, the green gowned old man merely took a glance at the map and had already said the names of the places written on it. “This is a piece of map of the Cyan City Ruins.” The green gowned old man soon made his judgement.
Wei Suo curiously asked, “Cyan City Ruins? What sort of place is that?”
“The Cyan City Ruins is a large ancient sect’s ruins. There are many artifact crafting materials and remnants of the ancient cultivator’s magical treasures in that place. In the several tens of thousands of years since, many cultivators have gone to that place to search for treasures. However, the Cyan City Ruins is located in the demonic beast wilderness between the Heavenly Profound Continent and the Cloud Spirit Continent. There are numerous powerful demonic beasts roaming around the region. On top of that, there are many dangerous traps and barriers around the ruin. Thus, most of the cultivators who decided to venture into that place to search for treasures ended up dying in there. Even if the ancient sects did not leave behind a lot of things, those cultivators that ended up dying in there most certainly did. Thus, there is definitely a lot of good items inside the ruins with a range of a thousand miles.”
The green gowned old man looked at Wei Suo and explained. “This piece of cloth that you have here ought to be a map drawn by a cultivator that had gone to the Cyan City Ruins. Recorded on the map were what sorts of demonic treasures are gathered at what location and how to enter a place more safely. If you were able to gather the complete map, it would be a bit safer for you to go into the Cyan City Ruins to look for treasures. Unfortunately, the one that you have is merely a corner piece of the map. Furthermore, with your current cultivation level, even if you managed to obtain the other pieces to make the complete map, it would still be no different from throwing your life away if you were to go to the Cyan City Ruins.”
“The ruins of a large sect? Hell, I would definitely go check it out in the future. Who knows, I might be lucky and end up finding the remaining pieces of the map.” Once Wei Suo heard this, his eyes immediately started shining. If nothing else, just by going so far out in the wilderness outside of the Heaven Sky Dome, meant that any one of those cultivators would likely be much more stronger than Lin Daoyi. Lin Daoyi already had that many good items on him. There was no need to mention how amazing the items those people might have on them.
“You can continue to wait then.” The green gowned old man looked at Wei Suo, whose eyes immediately started to shine once he heard that there might be something good in that place, in despise. “Hand over those two jade talismans so that I can check them out.”
Had it been other times, Wei Suo might react extremely slow if the green gowned old man asked Wei Suo to do something. However, right now, Wei Suo immediately handed over the two jade talismans to the green gowned old man without saying anything.
The green gowned old man looked at the two cyan colored jade talismans in Wei Suo’s hands. Suddenly, he turned into a green flame and entered into a cyan jade talisman.
“What the heck is this?”
At the moment when the green gowned old man turned into a green flame and entered the cyan jade talisman, a black light suddenly started to shine from the cyan jade talisman. After Wei Suo looked at it, he saw that the black light had formed a vicious and sinister black wolf and was prowling toward the green flame that the green gowned old man had turned into.
The green flame that the green gowned old man had turned into, had transformed into a green skull. It began to tangle with the black wolf in the cyan colored jade talisman. The black wolf tried its damnedest to bite down on the green skull. As for the green skull, it too had opened its mouth, and although it appeared to be hilarious, it was also biting down on the black wolf.
After a while, the green flame that the green gowned old man had turned into came back out from the cyan talisman. Once he came back out, he immediately shouted and then turned back to the green gowned old man’s appearance. The green gowned old man appeared to have been bitten by the black wolf to a sorry state and was gasping for breath.
“Ah? What’s that black wolf in there? Old man, what’s wrong? Could it be that you’re no match for it?” Wei Suo was a bit dumbstruck as he looked to the green gowned old man.
“Bullshit! It’s merely a Black Wind Wolf Divine Spirit that was sealed as the barrier. A mere little Black Wind Wold Divine Spirit, I don’t believe that I cannot win against it.” After the green gowned old man gasped, he immediately turned into a green flame and entered back into the cyan colored jade talisman.
Soon, the black wolf in the cyan colored jade talisman and the green skull began to bite each other again.
“Fuck… I refuse to believe that I cannot win!” Soon, the green gowned old man came back out again. He was gasping like last time. After a moment of rest, he entered back into the cyan jade talisman.
“Fuck, again!” Soon, the green gowned old man came out once again. He was in a sorry state just like the last two times.
“I refuse to believe that! Wei Suo, give me some Fire Scorpion’s blood! Watch me kill that damned wolf!”
“Haha, little guy, you’re finally dead! You dared to bite me?! Had it been before, I would be able to squeeze you to death with a single finger of mine!”
Wei Suo was silent as he watched the green gowned old man enter back and forth through the cyan jade talisman. He did that for seventeen or eighteen times. After he drank some Fire Scorpion’s blood, the color of the Black Wind Wolf finally began to grow dimmer. In the end, it was finally completely torn to shreds by the green skull. The green gowned old man who came out afterwards started to laugh heartily.
“You’ve taken care of the barrier?”
Wei Suo looked at the cyan colored jade talisman that no longer had any black light on it. He tried and instilled his True Elemental Energy into it. This time around, the symbol of the Heavenly Fate Pavilion did not shine a cyan light. As his light purple colored True Elemental Energy entered into the cyan colored jade talisman, a technique diagram that was formed with light purple colored light began to form above the jade talisman.
“This is amazing! Brother Lin Daoyi was truly a great person!”
Once Wei Suo saw the diagram, he started smiling so wide that his mouth almost turned crooked.
‘Golden Serpent Thunder Technique.’ What was recorded in this cyan colored jade talisman was a thunder elemental technique.
For low level techniques like the Cyan Water Blade that Wei Suo knew, there was only a singular method of using them. No matter what level Wei Suo’s True Elemental Energy was, using the Cyan Water Blade would only give off a cyan colored water blade. The only difference would be the speed of the casting and the power of the technique. However, this Golden Serpent Thunder Technique was a truly good item. It contained many different attack methods.
The entire Golden Serpent Thunder Technique was separated into five different levels.
For the first level, one could learn it at level two Divine Sea Stage. It would allow one to cast three two feet long serpent-like lightning strikes. For the second level, one could learn it at level three Divine Sea Stage. After one learned it, one could cast ten golden lightnings. These ten golden lightnings would intertwine together and form a lance.
For the third level, one could learn it at level four Divine Sea Stage. Casting this would allow one to form a thunderball composed of twenty lightning snakes. After it came into contact with one’s opponent or one’s opponent’s defensive items, it would explode.
The exploded twenty lightning serpents would envelope a range of twenty feet. The fourth level was something that a level five DIvine Sea Stage cultivator could learn. Casting it would form a large net formed with fifty lightning serpents. The range that the net could envelope was fifty feet.
The last level was called the Chaotic Dance of the Golden Serpents. Only cultivators that have reached the Heavenly Circuit Stage and above could learn it. When casting this technique, one would be able to form a chaotic lightning strike that covered a distance of a hundred feet and formed with over a hundred lightning serpents.
Wei Suo lacked cultivation martial techniques and skill techniques to begin with. Furthermore, this Golden Serpent Thunder Technique was obviously the technique that Lin Daoyi used on Wei Suo and them when they fought at the cave. At that time, Wei Suo saw with his own two eyes that Lin Daoyi’s thunder elemental technique was not only pretty powerful, the main aspect was that the golden serpents were capable of paralyzing one’s enemy. Even a burly brave man like Ye Xiaozheng who trained in the Golden Armor Technique, was unable to move for a long time after being struck by the thunderball that Lin Daoyi casted. If the person being struck was an ordinary cultivator like Wei Suo, even if he was able to withstand against the thunderball, he would likely be electrified to a state where he fell to the ground in an epileptic state for a very long time.
Currently, the Cyan Water Blade that Wei Suo knew was only a barely passable technique. However, if he was to encounter relatively speedy demonic beasts, then it would be very difficult for him to strike them with his Cyan Water Blade. Back at the cave, after he saw that Nangong Yuqing’s Ice Shield Technique and this thunder technique was capable of slowing down the enemy’s movements, Wei Suo had wanted to learn a technique like that extremely badly. To his surprise, Wei Suo just so happened to obtain one such technique.
Lin Daoyi was already a level five Divine Sea Stage cultivator. Yet, when he fought against Wei Suo, he was only able to cast the level three Thunderball. This meant that Lin Daoyi had not had this technique for a long time and did not even have the time to learn the fourth level skill, the Golden Serpent Net. With Wei Suo’s current martial prowess, he was able to learn the second level technique, the Golden Serpent Lance.
After foolishly rejoicing for a while, Wei Suo took a glance at the green gowned old man that was still laughing heartily. “Old man, isn’t it merely a Black Wind Wolf that you’ve killed? I bet that you definitely cannot kill the Black Wind Wolf in this other jade talisman.”
“Bullshit! Even if you bring me ten more wolves, I would be able to kill them all!” After the green gowned old man shouted this, he turned into a green flame again and burst into the second jade talisman that Wei Suo held in his hand.
