Chapter 61 – Map, Incomplete Beasts Slaving Booklet
Translated by: Pumpkin

“What, could it be that you wished to fight me?” The single eyed cultivator’s eye was opened wide. It seemed that he had managed to react to what was happening. “Oh, you’re trying to block my attacks in hopes for the people of the Iron Policy to hear the sound of battle and come over? However, you’d best give up on that hope. Not only would the people from the Iron Policy not be able to rush over here immediately, but when I kill you, I would also not create much noise.”
Wei Suo took a glance at the single eyed cultivator. He did not reply. Instead, he took out an item and said, “That’s not it, I merely wanted to let you see this item.”
“What item… ah!” Slightly curious, the singled eyed cultivator opened his one eye. However, right after he opened his one eye, an intense sunlight appeared before him. His single eye immediately started feeling like it had been pricked by needles. He was unable to open it up at all.
“Holy fuck! What the hell is this? Snake and rat in the same nest? Fuck, aren’t you afraid that your snake would eat your rat?!”
After making the single eyed cultivator incapable of opening his eye with the Burning Sun Treasured Talisman, Wei Suo had originally planned to directly use his Fire Elements Brass Ring and the Dark Demon Blade to deal with him. However, at the moment when this guy screamed miserably, a cyan light shot out from the bag in his hand. In an instant, this light circled around the Black Turtle Shield that was placed before Wei Suo.
This extremely fast cyan light was actually a dark green colored strange shaped little serpent with a pair of flesh wings.
After passing around the Black Turtle Shield, this little serpent began to directly charge towards Wei Suo’s throat to bite it.
Wei Suo didn’t dare to be bitten by this sort of little snake. He shouted strangely. Then, giving up on the Five Elements Brass Ring and the Dark Demon Blade, he instilled True Elemental Energy into the robe that he was wearing. At the moment when Wei Suo could see whether the little serpent before him had teeth decay, a strong black wind and a fire phoenix appeared simultaneously and instantly blocked this little serpent.
“To actually domesticate such a demonic beast, no wonder this guy, a mere level five Divine Sea Stage cultivator, had regarded me as a dead man.” Wei Suo looked to the dark green colored little serpent that he had blocked while his heart trembled.
Cultivators who domesticate demonic beasts, when they fight, it was like they possessed an extra assistant. Compared to ordinary level five Divine Sea Stage cultivators, such a cultivator was naturally much more powerful.
“Could it be that my good eye is ruined?” On the other side, the single eyed cultivator who had been trying his hardest to open his eye also had a huge change in his expression. He was rubbing his eye as hard as he can.
How could a lousy rough cloth robe possibly give forth a layer of strong black wind and a fire phoenix that blocked the Cyan Bamboo Winged Serpent that he had raised till level four?
Right at this moment, a brass ring was shot out from Wei Suo’s hand. In an instant, the brass ring grew bigger and hooped itself around the single eyed cultivator.
An expression of fright appeared on the single eyed cultivator’s face. The little dark green serpent had also managed to sense that its owner was in danger. Once again, it swirled around to Wei Suo’s back without regard for its own life and began to try to bite Wei Suo’s neck from behind with all its might.
“Don’t worry. This Cyan Bamboo Winged Serpent is merely a level four low level demonic beast. It would not be able to break through your altered robe’s defense.”
Wei Suo whose heart was trembling, had originally subconsciously planned to defend against this little serpent. However, after hearing the voice of the green gowned old man in his ears, he clenched his teeth and stopped concerning about the little serpent that had gotten behind him. Whizz. A sharp whistle was heard. Wei Suo had cast the Dark Demon Blade’s fragment.
The iron shield before the single eyed cultivator was cut apart like a piece of paper alongside the head of this single eyed cultivator.
“You’re still trying to fight? Can’t you learn to be more quick-witted like that rat?”
Wei Suo directly swallowed an Energy Recovery Pellet. At the same moment when the single eyed cultivator was killed, the silver and black colored rat that had exposed Wei Suo had already fled. However, the dark green colored little serpent behind him was extremely stubborn. It was still revolving around and trying to attack him through the fire phoenix that covered Wei Suo. In merely a short moment, the fire phoenix from the Fire Phoenix Dudou had become much darker.
Right at the moment when the might of the Fire Phoenix Dudou was about to be completely wore down by this winged serpent, seizing the moment when this Cyan Bamboo Winged Serpent was blocked by the Fire Phoenix again, a lump of white colored ice mist immediately burst apart. Wei Suo had first cast a level two Cold Ice Talisman that he was extremely proficient with. He froze the Cyan Bamboo Winged Serpent to become sluggish in its flight. After that, a golden colored thunderball was shot forth from his hand and smashed onto the Cyan Bamboo Winged Serpent, shocking it and causing it to twitch nonstop.
Wei Suo then took out the six golden pieces of Firefly Flying Blades that he obtained from the purple gowned old daoist’s Treasure Receiving Pocket and held them in his hand. He aimed at the Cyan Bamboo Winged Serpent that was unable to resist anymore and cast them at it.
Six rays of golden light twisted into one. The Cyan Bamboo Winged Serpent was directly sliced into multiple pieces before falling to the ground.
Immediately after that, Wei Suo began to rapidly strip the single eyed cultivator of his possessions. He rolled them up and then, without any waste, went to pick up the Cyan Bamboo Winged Serpent that had been sliced into multiple sections. He then placed all of them into the black Treasure Receiving Pocket. After throwing the corpse of this single eyed cultivator down the bottomless abyss below the bridge, Wei Suo began to run across the bridge before him.
After passing through the bridge and passing through a city’s gate-like entrance, Wei Suo reached another scene of collapsed city ruins.
After traveling this deep into the underground ruins, fresh air started to become scarce and a disgusting moldy earth smell filled the place. This caused Wei Suo to feel that breathing had become a bit more difficult.
The thing that gave Wei Suo an even greater headache was that both he and the green gowned old man had been completely lost. Neither of them could determine where exactly the sound from earlier originated from. After walking through the ruins-like underground tomb for a while, Wei Suo was unable to encounter even half a cultivator.
With no alternatives, Wei Suo decided to hide himself in a half collapsed little palace. While waiting for his True Elemental Energy to recover, he began to inspect the items he obtained from the single eyed cultivator that he killed.
These level five Divine Sea Stage cultivators, all of them possessed at least several thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones on them.
From the possession of the cultivator who wore a black leather cloak that he assassinated, Wei Suo discovered over two thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones worth of Spiritual Stones. Alongside them was a pair of artifacts that was created through an unknown demonic beast’s claws. Those claws possessed the might of a half Spirit level magical treasure. Merely, their speed was inferior to the purple gowned old daoist’s Firefly Flying Blades. Thus, it was not of much use to the current Wei Suo. Merely, this pair of claws alongside the other items that he possessed on him were worth at least two to three thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones.
“These two are Slave Beast Pouches.”
From the possession of the single eyed cultivator, Wei Suo first discovered two cyan colored leather pouches with completely different seal marks than the Treasure Receiving Pockets. After a slight inspection, without even needing the green gowned old man’s explanation, Wei Suo could tell that these two were Slave Beast Pouches especially used to contain domesticated demonic beasts. These Slave Beast Pouches contained a considerable amount of space within them. They were capable of putting even large demonic beasts inside them to carry on one’s body. However, these two Slave Beast Pouches possessed relatively simple seal marks and were only likely to be low quality items. The space within them was definitely not large. It was likely that extremely large demonic beasts cannot be put inside them.
“Magical Treasure Fragment?” The thing that immediately got Wei Suo’s attention afterwards was a broken cyan wood gourd-like artifact. He did not know what sort of wood this item was made from. However, it was even heavier than iron. On the surface of this cyan wood gourd-like artifact were many spiral pattern seal symbols that flickered with traces of cyan light incessantly.
“Cyan Emperor Gourd!” The green gowned old man seemed to be shocked too. A green light enveloped this cyan wooden gourd that had multiple holes. After a short moment, the green light returned to the Ghost Raising Jar. The green gowned old man then sighed. “This Cyan Emperor Gourd used to be a Path level wood element Magical Treasure. Not only could it attack and defend, the wood energy within it was also capable of causing the Spirit Fields to thrive. To some Spiritual Herbs, it would promote them to ripen sooner. However, the current Cyan Emperor Gourd, many of its major formation arrays had been broken. If you were to use it to attack now, its attack power is inferior to even a half Spirit level artifact. The most it could do now is emitting a cyan wooden gas to envelop yourself, causing many demonic beasts that only perceive others through their senses to think that you’re merely a lump of wood and not discover you.”
[TL: Remember, Spirit level is weakest. After that there’s Path, Mystic and Immortal.]
“Holy fuck! A Path level wood element Magical Treasure! If this magical treasure isn’t broken, then doesn’t that mean that I wouldn’t have to fear that level two Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator?” Wei Suo opened his mouth and howled in grief.
“Isn’t broken your head! If this Magical Treasure was completely intact, then how could you possibly be able to break through its cyan wooden defense? If it was intact, then that single eyed guy could casually use this to smash you and you will be crushed to death.”
“A map of the Cyan Wind Mound? An incomplete Beast Slaving Booklet?”
Other than about two hundred Mid Quality Spiritual Stones and some insignificant items like Energy Recovery Pellets, the remaining two items that this single eyed cultivator possessed had caused Wei Suo to become overjoyed.
On this single eyed cultivator was actually a map of the Cyan Wind Mound drawn on top of a little roll of sheepskin!
Although this map only covered a portion of the Cyan Wind Mound, many important locations, their entrances and exits were all contained within it. Furthermore, written clearly on the map were the locations with Mind Devouring Bugs. It was evident that these locations were the most possible place for sighting of Mind Devouring Bugs.
It was no wonder that the yellow gowned cultivator’s group was so bold to directly enter here to surround and kill those from the Iron Policy. It was clear that they knew the environment of multiple places in this underground mound extremely well. It was equivalent to them possessing the more favorable place for battle.
As for the other thing that caused Wei Suo to become overjoyed, it was a little black colored leather booklet. Written on the booklet was the method of domestication and training of many demonic beasts. It also included how to level up those demonic beasts.
To bring alongside a demonic beast underling while fighting against another person, this was extremely useful. Just like the single eyed cultivator from earlier, when he was unable to react, the demonic beast that he raised was capable of forcing Wei Suo to go on the defense. It had nearly caused Wei Suo to miss his perfect opportunity.
Due to the fact that over ten thousand years ago the amount of demonic beasts was not as numerous as today, knowledge about domesticating demonic beasts was something that the green gowned old man didn’t know about.
Furthermore, the more important matter was that this booklet appeared to be definitely something a large sect or a powerful cultivator had left behind. That was because even the Golden Eagle Palace of the Spirit Peak City, a place famed for their ability to raise demonic beasts, only possessed the methods to breed and train demonic beasts. They did not have knowledge about using certain items or methods to increase the demonic beasts’ levels.
It was extremely difficult to obtain the young of a high level demonic beast. However, this piece of booklet fragment contained multiple methods of increasing the level of low level demonic beasts. Like this, one could domesticate some low level demonic beast and slowly cultivate them into higher level demonic beasts. Furthermore, when low level demonic beasts leveled up, they would frequently obtain one or two peculiar skills or abilities. Compared to demonic beasts of the same level, they would be even more powerful.
