Chapter 58 – Sneak Attack
Translated by: Pumpkin
Edited by: Fumma, Earl
Not long after, a figure flashed. A cultivator wearing a black leather armor appeared from the side of the woods.
This cultivator had a long horse-like face. After he showed up, he was extremely careful. With every step, he would look behind him and check out his surroundings. Furthermore, it seemed that he was holding an artifact in his hand. He had most definitely prepared for sudden attacks.
Almost instantly, this horse-faced cultivation discovered the black toad that was flipped over after being smashed by the fireballs. He stopped in his tracks. His eyes began to flicker. He seemed to be thinking about something.
Wei Suo who was holding his breath as he hid on top of the tree began to stealthily use his Aura Determining Technique to check out the cultivation level of this horse-faced cultivator. He discovered that this horse-faced cultivator was someone a level above him, a level five Divine Sea Stage cultivator.
Due to thinking that he was unable to discover the people from the Iron Policy, Wei Suo decided to make a huge ruckus at this location. However, he was unable to determine whether this horse-faced cultivator was someone from the Iron Policy or someone with the yellow gowned cultivator.
“Come out. Did you think that I cannot see you because you’ve hidden yourself there?” Suddenly, that horse faced cultivator coldly humphed.
Wei Suo was immediately frightened. He thought that this horse-faced cultivator knew a special skill technique that would allow him to see through a Concealing Talisman. ‘Fuck, did you think I’m that easy to be cheated? Just by your appearance, I knew that you’re no good man.’ Immediately, Wei Suo began to clench his teeth and cursed out in his heart. That was because although this horse-faced cultivator displayed an icily arrogant appearance, his eyes were still checking the surroundings incessantly. This guy had most definitely not seen through Wei Suo’s Concealing Talisman and did not know where Wei Suo was hiding.
A light sound was heard. Right at this moment, from the dense forest on the opposing side of the horse-faced cultivator appeared a man. He made a gesture to the horse-faced cultivator indicating to him to not be anxious as he was a person from their side.
“Fuck, this horse-faced is indeed no good man!”
Wei Suo’s heart trembled. The person that appeared was the level one Heavenly Circuit Stage purple gowned old daoist that he had seen in the northern city district’s market!
“Blackwater Poison Toad.” The purple gowned old daoist’s cold gaze was cast onto the black toad that was flipped over. He coldly humphed and said, “It ought to be that brat. Only a low level cultivator like him would use technique talismans to deal with a mere level three demonic beast.”
The horse faced cultivator nodded. “Senior Zixiao, that brat wanted to ruin our plan. I must definitely teach him a lesson. He should not be far. Let’s split up and capture him.”
“You can go out and search for him.” The purple gowned old daoist said coldly. “I shall stay here and search the surroundings in case that brat is cunning and would sneak back to this location in hopes of encountering people from the Iron Policy.”
“Fuck!” Once he heard what the purple gowned old daoist said, Wei Suo immediately grumbled in his heart.
He did not wish to risk his life fighting with a level one Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator. However, the duration of the Concealing Talisman that he used was limited. If this purple gowned old daoist continued to remain here, he would definitely be discovered once the time limit for the Concealing Talisman passed.
After a slight hesitation, Wei Suo quietly took out the Burning Sun Treasures Talisman, the Five Elements Brass Ring and the Dark Demon Blade and placed them in his hand.
The horse-faced cultivator nodded. He was planning to leave.
“Who is it?!”
Right at this moment, a cold light suddenly flashed through the purple gowned old daoist’s eyes. He looked to the direction where Wei Suo was at.
However, the purple gowned old daoist and the horse-faced cultivator gave off a miserable shriek almost simultaneously. A shine countless times more dazzling than the brightest sun instantly enveloped the two of them. The eyes of these two men were like being pricked by needles. They were unable to open them at all.
Right at the moment when the purple gowned old daoist and the horse-faced cultivator shrieked miserably and closed their eyes involuntarily while beaming with tears, a brass ring suddenly came down from the sky. In an instant, it enveloped the purple gowned old cultivator’s body and violently shrunk. The limbs of the purple gowned old daoist were completely bound.
Violent wind suddenly appeared in the forest surrounding the pond. Over a dozen black skulls and a black light followed the violent wind and collided into the purple gowned old daoist’s body. Suddenly, a dragon and a tiger shined from the daoist gown that the purple gowned old daoist wore and blocked all of the black skulls. However, the black light flashed past and slashed through the head of the purple gowned old daoist. Blood began to rush forth from his neck to a high altitude.
Right at the moment when the purple gowned old daoist’s head was slashed off, a white light also attacked Wei Suo’s location. All of the branches at the location covered by the white light were all twisted and crushed. The large tree that Wei Suo was on, half of it were completely shredded.
While the horse-faced cultivator who was unable to open his eyes due to the burning light shrieked miserably, he also activated a cyan colored light cover around him.
Yet, at practically the same time, a lump of white colored ice frost fell down from not far above his head. The ice cold energy emitted from this lump of white colored ice frost instantly created a layer of ice at the pond to the side. Sounds of cracking was heard incessantly. The cyan colored light cover that was attacked by the white colored ice frost was not damaged in the slightest. However, the horse-faced cultivator had still been frozen stiff by the ice cold energy emitted by the ice frost.
While he was stiff, violent wind began to rise once again. Wheezing sound was heard once more. A series of black skulls and a black light instantly shattered the cyan light cover.
An extremely terrified expression appeared on the face of this horse-faced cultivator. Before he could make any voice, the black skulls and the black light have instantly cut through him countless times.
“Fuck!” While still enveloped by the Concealing Talisman’s ability, Wei Suo who was underneath the large tree which had half of it twisted and shredded was covered with cold sweat. He directly swallowed an Energy Recover Pellet.
To sneak attack and instantly kill a level one Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator and a level five Divine Sea Stage cultivator, this was an extremely astonishing feat for a level four Divine Sea Stage cultivator.
However, even though Wei Suo mounted the sneak attack while neither men was on guard and used the Burning Sun Treasured Talisman to blind them and then bound the purple gowned old daoist with the Five Elements Brass Ring, had he not been smart to jump down from the large tree the same moment he attacked, then he would’ve likely been shredded to pieces by the dying attack from the purple gowned old daoist.
That was because Wei Suo who was focusing all of his attention on offense did not have the time to instill True Elemental Energy into either the Black Turtle Shield or his altered robe to activate them at all..
Furthermore, it seemed that the purple gowned old daoist had sensed him the moment he used the Burning Sun Treasured Talisman.
Had the Burning Sun Treasured Talisman not been a restriction-type artifact but was instead an offensive-type artifact, it might actually be blocked by the purple gowned old daoist. The robe that this purple gowned old daoist wore was actually able to block even the black skulls from the Black Demon Blade.
As for the white light that attacked Wei Suo’s location, it was merely a skill technique cast by the purple gowned old daoist. However, this skill technique cast at the moment of his death was truly too astonishingly powerful.
The Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivators, they were truly frightening.
As for the defensive light cover that the horse-faced level five Divine Sea Stage cultivator cast, it was also extremely powerful. Not even a level three Profound Ice Talisman was capable of breaking it. Had Wei Suo not have a powerful offensive Magical Treasure like the Dark Demon Blade, it would definitely be hard for Wei Suo to kill that horse-faced cultivator in a short amount of time.
The most important matter was that, with Wei Suo’s current martial prowess, after using the Dark Demon Blade’s fragment twice in succession, he had consumed practically all of his True Elemental Energy.
After taking an Energy Recovery Pellet, Wei Suo did not dare to stop at all. He gathered the Five Elements Brass Ring that bound the purple gowned old daoist and then directly stripped all of the possessions of the purple gowned old daoist and the horse-faced cultivator. He rolled them up into a lump and then rapidly ran into the dense woods.
Wei Suo had only left this pond not long before a ‘woosh’ was heard. A gray figure arrived at the pond and stopped.
The person that arrived was the gray gowned cultivator that Wei Suo had encountered alongside the yellow gowned middle-aged cultivator at the northern city district’s market. This gray gowned cultivator was another powerful level one Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator.
“How is this possible?!”
Once he saw the scene before him, the expression of this sharp jawed skinny gray gowned cultivator with a large mole on his left face instantly changed. As if he had encountered a great enemy, he instantly activated a wooden bowl-like artifact that he held in his hand and created a cyan-yellow colored light cover around himself. After that, he immediately took out a two meter long item that appeared like a fish bone and grabbed it. His shocked gaze began to search through his surroundings.
Revered Daoist Zixiao, whose strength was only stronger than him and definitely not weaker than him, was actually killed here alongside a level five Divine Sea Stage cultivator. Furthermore, after they died, all of their possessions have been stripped off from their bodies. Could it be that other than that low level cultivator, there was another powerful high-level cultivator in the Cyan Wind Mound?
Right when this level one Heavenly Circuit Stage gray clothed man was thinking like so in fear, Wei Suo was rapidly fleeing into the forest. While running, Wei Suo rushed into a large dried up tree’s half a man height and filthy looking hole.
After he placed the dead branches and vines that covered the entrance of the hole back in order, Wei Suo began to inspect the items he obtained from the two cultivators he killed earlier as quietly as possible.
“This is the Dragon and Tiger Crape Myrtle Gown. You cannot activate it alongside the robe that you’re wearing. As for its defense, it ought to be a bit weaker than your altered robe.” Once Wei Suo held the purple gown that he stripped from the old daoist, the green gowned old man’s voice immediately sounded in his ears.
Wei Suo nodded. He began to carefully inspect the items that the purple gowned old daoist and the horse-faced cultivator possessed. While inspecting the items, Wei Suo’s eyes started to shine with joy and nervousness. He managed to find a black colored Treasure Receiving Pocket from the purple gowned old daoist’s clothes. As for the horse-faced cultivator’s clothes, he managed to find two leather bags and several scattered items.
The black Treasure Receiving Pocket that the purple gowned old daoist had was a different sort of style from the one that Wei Suo had. However, the way to activate them was the same. While holding this black Treasure Receiving Pocket, Wei Suo nearly bit his tongue once he sensed the items contained within it.
Within the Treasure Receiving Pocket were a lot of Spiritual Stones!
Other than several hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones, there were over seven hundred Mid Quality Spiritual Stones and five High Quality Spiritual Stones!
Over seven hundred Mid Quality Spiritual Stones were equivalent to over seven thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones. Five High Quality Spiritual Stones were equivalent to five hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones. Merely the amount of Spiritual Stones in the Treasure Receiving Pocket was equivalent to over eight thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones!
