Following the flash of a milky white colored light, three cultivators wearing dark golden colored robes walked out from the Cyan Deep Mountain’s conveying array.
These three cultivators who had appeared, looked to be around thirty years of age and all were of decent martial prowess.The two robust looking cultivators to the left were both level four Divine Sea Stage cultivators. As for the one to the rightmost side wearing gloves which shined with a black radiance was a level five Divine Sea Stage cultivator. The dark golden colored robes that these three cultivators wore were all formed with soft essence metals. They appeared to be pretty good defensively. On the chest region of their robes were two large characters that read ‘Golden Eagle.’ Judging from the robes that these three wore, they were all cultivators from the Golden Eagle Palace.
“Another death courting low level cultivator that doesn’t know the immensity of heaven and earth!”
After walking out from the conveying array, the rightmost cultivator wearing a black glove took a glance at his surrounding before sneering with a cold voice.
Standing far ahead before these three cultivators was a low level cultivator wearing ordinary cyan clothes. This cultivator was currently advancing toward the direction of a valley within a continuous mountain range.
This low level cultivator who these three Golden Eagle Palace’s cultivators thought to be courting death was Wei Suo.
The reason why these three people had determined that Wei Suo would definitely be killed was because there were a lot of level three demonic beasts in the Cyan Deep Mountain. According to the general knowledge of cultivators, a level two Divine Sea Stage cultivator was capable of handling two level two mid-level demonic beasts. As for a level three Divine Sea Stage cultivator, they would be capable of handling two level three mid-level demonic beasts. Those three cultivators were able to tell that Wei Suo ought to not have reached level four Divine Sea Stage.
In the Cyan Deep Mountain where one could encounter six to seven level three demonic beasts quite commonly, even level four Divine Sea Stage cultivators would generally team up before daring to penetrate into the mountain to kill demonic beasts. Furthermore, the direction that Wei Suo was currently advancing toward was the direction of the Ten Thousand Serpents Valley.
The Ten Thousand Serpents Valley was an extremely damp and chaotic place. Not only was the place covered with all kinds of different shaped rocks, there were also all kinds of different plants and vegetations due to its mild and humid climate. Looking from outside, the Ten Thousand Serpents Valley appeared to be even more chaotic than the Spirit Peak City’s Willow Back Alley. Not only were there a lot of level one and level two poisonous insect type demonic beasts in the valley, it was also the gathering place of a type of level three demonic beast with the name of Flesh Winged Scaled Serpent. Even if a level five Divine Sea Stage cultivator were to enter the place, he would not necessarily be able to come out alive. However, the current Wei Suo appeared to not be worried.
When the distance was several hundreds of feet from the valley, Wei Suo immediately started to instill True Elemental Energy into his Spiritual Heavenly Jade Ornament that he could use three more times, making it ready to be activated at any moment. After that, Wei Suo rapidly activated a dark yellow colored talisman. Once this dark yellow colored talisman was activated, it immediately created a golden bell like thing surrounding his body. It was a golden bell that had all kinds of talisman symbols in its inner surface.
After that, Wei Suo wore a large golden bell like light cover and proceeded to openly walk into the Ten Thousand Serpents Valley.
After walking roughly two thousand feet into the Ten Thousand Serpents Valley, two three feet long black strings were suddenly shot down from a large tree to Wei Suo’s left side without any warning. “Bang.” They collided onto the golden colored light cover that Wei Suo wore.
Wei Suo immediately stopped. He saw that those two black strings were actually two three feet long strange snakes. Their bodies were extremely black and the color looked exactly like ordinary tree barks. However, right below their necks were two large bird claw-like limbs and a pair of flesh wings. Their triangular heads appeared to be somewhat large. Their two red eyeballs appeared extremely malevolent.
This sort of strange snake was the Ten Thousand Serpents Valley’s famous level three mid-level demonic beast, Flesh Winged Scaled Serpent.
After failing to break through the golden light cover that surrounded Wei Suo, these two Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents had obviously became agitated. They began to hiss. The speed of these two Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents was also extremely astonishing. They were capable of soaring and turning in the sky. They began to fly around, changing directions mid-flight and biting at the golden colored light cover incessantly. It appeared like two black lights trying to stab at the golden colored light cover incessantly.
After merely a short moment, three more Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents had appeared. They too began to collide onto and began to bite the golden colored light cover. Looking from afar, this scene looked pretty scary.
“Haha, what old man said was true indeed.”
For there to be five level three mid-level demonic beasts at once, this scene was indeed frightening. However, Wei Suo who had not moved at all, started to rejoice instead. He took out a white colored talisman.
Level one Ice Mist Talisman!
Following the activation of this white colored talisman, ice-cold white mist began to form around Wei Suo’s body. The five bluish-black colored Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents became much slower in the ice-cold mist.
Golden Serpent Thunder Lance!
Cyan Water Blade!
Wei Suo who had taken aim for a long time now accurately cast the two skill techniques toward the Flesh Winged Scaled Serpent that was charging toward the light cover on his head nonstop like it wanted to bite his head.
After being struck by the Golden Serpent Thunder Lance, the snake began to twitch from head to toe and then fell to the ground. Wei Suo’s Cyan Water Blade immediately followed suit and chopped down on its neck. Water splattered everywhere. It appeared that not much damage was done. Without waiting for this Flesh Winged Scaled Serpent to recover, Wei Suo struck its body with another Golden Serpent Thunder Lane and Cyan Water Blade. This Flesh Winged Scaled Serpent immediately started twitching like having epilepsy.
This time around, these two skill techniques that Wei Suo had cast all landed on one of that snake’s flesh wing. They ended up slicing off that flesh wing.
The remaining four Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents immediately became even more frantic upon seeing their brother being beaten to such a miserable state. Even their red eyeballs seemed to be bulging. However, Wei Suo had completely ignored these four Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents. Another Golden Serpent Thunder Lance and a Cyan Water Blade was shot toward that injured Flesh Winged Scaled Serpent.
After over a dozen Golden Serpent Thunder Lances, this Flesh Winged Scaled Serpent finally died with remaining grievance.
If those three cultivators from the Golden Eagle Palace were to see the current Wei Suo, they would definitely consider him to be extremely abnormal. That was because when Wei Suo killed this Flesh Winged Scaled Serpent, five more metal-like Ironthread Serpents had joined the fray. However, Wei Suo started to laugh even more heartily.
A fireball suddenly smashed onto the five ferocious level one demonic beast Ironthread Serpents that had rushed over. This fireball had smashed five of the Ironthread Serpents flying, leaving them in a miserable state.
“Wahahaha! Get some more over here!”
After Wei Suo cast a Fireball Talisman, he began to wholeheartedly focus all his attack on a Flesh Winged Scaled Serpent again.
Actually, the reason why Wei Suo was acting so arrogant was because this Cyan Deep Mountain’s Ten Thousand Serpents Valley was chosen by Wei Suo and the green gowned old man after careful considerations.
Wei Suo had originally wanted to go to the Great Cyan Mountain’s copper mine. However, after Wei Suo mentioned of the Scarlet Beetle boss and the black arrow that stuck onto its butt, the green gowned old man also began to suspect that the arrow that shined with black light was a magical treasure. According to the countless years of experience that the green gowned old man had, even if it was some low level demonic beast, if they were to live long enough or lucky enough to eat any heavenly treasure, they might end up becoming even more powerful than high level demonic beasts. The Scarlet Beetles were a kind of demonic beast that become stronger as they become older. A Scarlet Beetle that had lived for over a thousand years would be able to shoot out flames from its mouth. Judging from the appearance and size of the Scarlet Beetle boss that Wei Suo had described, the green gowned old man was able to determine that that Scarlet Beetle boss was at least eight hundred years old, if not a thousand years old. For Scarlet Beetles of this age, their most frightening aspect was not being able to shoot flames out of their mouths, it was instead their extremely thick shell.
It was likely that even a level one Heavenly Circuit Stage skill technique would not be able to break through the shell of Scarlet Beetles of this age. However, that short arrow had clearly pierced through its carapace and thrust into its butt. Furthermore, as it was flickering with a black light, it was definitely no ordinary item.
However, after considering how the copper mine had mine caves located all over the place where one does not know what sort of demonic beast there was and how crowded the place was, if Wei Suo was to be surrounded by a group of Scarlet Beetle brothers, he figured his life might not necessarily be safe. Thus, after considering about it with the green gowned old man, Wei Suo decided to give up on the idea of returning to the copper mine to meet up with the Scarlet Beetle brothers.
The reason why they selected the Ten Thousand Serpent Valley in the end was because the green gowned old man was very familiar with the Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents. Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents were level three mid-level demonic beasts. Other than their ferocious names, many cultivators had died to these Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents. Among those that died, there included powerful level five Divine Sea Stage cultivators. However, according to the green gowned old man’s experience, those cultivators that ended up dying were generally caught off guard and was ambushed by the Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents. Actually, the strongest aspect of the Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents were their lightning-like speed and their ability to fly. They were like flying swords that could change directions at will. However, their impact force and power were much weaker than other level three demonic beasts.
Thus, as long as one’s defensive light cover was strong enough and was capable of restricting the movement of the Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents, then this sort of level three demonic beast would not be hard to deal with at all.
Having received the guidance of the green gowned old man, Wei Suo was completely prepared against the Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents. The light cover surrounding him was a level two Golden Bell Spiritual Talisman. This sort of light cover was capable of remaining for a duration of an incense stick worth of time. Level one Ice Mist Talisman was capable of slowing down the flying speed of the Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents. Furthermore, the Golden Serpent Thunder Technique that he obtained from Lin Daoyi just so happened to have a paralyzing ability. When matched with the Cyan Water Blade, it was simply a perfect match against the Flesh Winged Scaled Serpent.
After some time, Wei Suo gulped down a bottle of Energy Recovery Medicine. Another Flesh Winged Scaled Serpent was hacked to death by Wei Suo.
“Don’t be anxious, you’ll be next. Yep, it’s you, the one in the middle. I said it’s you already, why are you so anxious?!” After Wei Suo hacked another Flesh Winged Scaled Serpent to death, he arrogantly pointed at the Flesh Winged Scaled Serpent in the middle. “Fuck, what the heck is this?” However, right at this moment, Wei Suo’s eyes were opened wide in shock. The sound of branches snapping came from the bushes beside him. A giant cyan python crawled over here like a little mountain.
This giant cyan python was filled with coin-sized cyan scales. Its body was as thick as a bucket. With such a body, it appeared extremely fierce. However, what was even more fierce than that was that the top section of this giant python was upright like a standing man. It was as if it resented not being high enough from the ground, not looking ferocious enough, and would have to stand up just so that it could look down upon you.
Its blood-pit like mouth was capable of easily swallowing Wei Suo. The most unusual aspect was that this python had a lump of flesh tumor on its head. On top of that, there was a foot long mild-yellow colored horn growing from the lump of flesh tumor.
“Single Horned Thunder Viper! Fuck!”
Once he saw the mild-yellow colored semitransparent horn growing on top of this giant cyan python’s head, Wei Suo immediately screamed out loud. He immediately cast a Fireball Talisman at this cyan python, turned around and started running.
