Extremely pleasantly surprised, Wei Suo stood on top of this ‘big roast duck.’ After it became bigger, this jade crane that was originally emitting a white light and miraculous aura appeared even more ugly. Many places appeared to have been charred black, it had turned into a large, charred and spotted roast duck.
However, after Wei Suo tried to pour some True Elemental Energy into it, this jade crane immediately started to float and nearly crashed into the ceiling of the room with Wei Suo on top of it.
Wei Suo was frightened by the sudden ascension and nearly fell to the ground. With great difficulty, he managed to gain control of the jade crane and made it stay in the air. After it flew around in a staggering manner, Wei Suo descended from it with a forehead filled with sweat and then placed it away.
This jade crane was controlled by the amount of True Elemental Energy instilled into it and the direction at which it was instilled. Wei Suo reckoned that he would need to practice for a couple of days.
Furthermore, after being burned by the Dark Phosphorous Bone Flames, not only did this jade crane become extremely ugly, some of the formation arrays on it had also been damaged. It was now not as smooth and steady to fly with and would slightly sway back and forth.
However, this was still a true flying Magical Artifact.
Furthermore, Wei Suo had determined earlier that this item does not consume a lot of True Elemental Energy. With Wei Suo’s current martial prowess, a level four Divine Sea Stage with a martial technique equivalent to mid Profound level, it would likely be fine even if he was to control this Magical Treasure for four hours in succession. With the speed of this jade crane, it would be able to travel at least a thousand and several hundred miles in four hours time.
Even Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivators would not be able to continue flying for two hours in succession with their flying skill technique.
Wei Suo had wanted to experience the feeling of flying high in the air like those powerful cultivators above Heavenly Circuit Stage for a long time. However, flying Magical Treasures were as rare as the Treasure Receiving Pockets. For cultivators who managed to luckily obtain those items, they would generally save it for themselves. Furthermore, even if this sort of item was to appear in the market, they would instantly be bought by those with strength and background. For a cultivator like Wei Suo, even if he had the money, he would not be able to purchase one such item.
Moreover, this jade crane was not something that was easily damaged and slow like the paper kite-like artifacts created by the Heaven’s First Sect. Thus, although the appearance of the jade crane was rather ugly, Wei Suo was still extremely pleased to obtain it.
After Wei Suo finished inspecting Wen Daoge’s possessions, he began to directly inspect the items from the short and stout daoist.
The short and stout daoist did not disappoint Wei Suo either. This fellow’s Spirit Stone bag contained over four thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones worth of various colored Spiritual Stones.
Other than the golden short spear, the short and stout daoist also possessed a brass colored magic pestle that appeared to be a half Spirit level artifact. Other than some odd ends here and there, Wei Suo found two Golden Spirit Pellets from his possessions. It seemed that this short and stout daoist would sometimes indulge himself in luxury too and use this sort of pellet medicine that refines faster in place of Spiritual Stones.
The purple gowned old daoist and the short and stout daoist, both of these daoists possessed Golden Spirit Pellets on them. Thinking about this reminded Wei Suo that there was a green faced, skinny old cultivator. He was someone who actually had a true Spirit level artifact.
At practically the same moment when he recalled that, Wei Suo immediately went to search for his possessions and found the gourd covered with dense white gas. The true Spirit level artifact, that umbrella that emitted a yellow light, had already been shattered. However, this gourd was also extremely powerful. Merely this gourd had caused Nangong Yuqing’s group of five to be at their wits’ end.
However, to Wei Suo’s great disappointment, when he opened the gourd covered with a dense white gas, the amount of Rotten Corpse Water within it was already pretty much all used up, so much so that the bottom could be seen.
Following that, Wei Suo discovered over three thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones worth of Spiritual Stones and some ordinary items from the green faced, skinny old man. Other than them, there wasn’t anything else. However, Wei Suo later casually picked up a bowl-sized heart protection copper lens. This item ended up attracting his attention.
At the crucial moment, this heart protection copper lens blocked Nangong Yuqing’s Magical Treasure Fragment’s attack, allowing the green faced old man to lose only an ear and not his life.
At this moment, there was a half foot long hole in the center of the copper lens. However, when Wei Suo picked up this copper lens, he discovered that the amount of Spiritual Energy on the copper lens was still pretty abundant. It appeared that the damage was not severe.
A scene that surprised Wei Suo happened. At the moment when he tried to pour True Elemental Energy into this copper lens, this copper lens shot out from his hand and started to float before him.
The speed at which this defensive copper lens activated was actually even faster than Wen Daoge’s two red bracelets!
This discovery caused Wei Suo to become overjoyed. Learning from the green faced old man, Wei Suo directly placed this copper lens underneath his clothes by his chest.
A defensive item with an activation speed that fast, it would be able to save his life at the crucial moment when he was to be sneak attacked by cultivators or demonic beasts.
As for the other three cultivators, Wei Suo had already discovered three half Spirit level offensive magical treasures from them. One was a silver colored lion’s head stamp. The other was a cyan colored wooden fish. As for the last one, the yellow-jade like hatchet, it was already given to Ye Xiaozheng.
From the possessions of these three level five Divine Sea Stage cultivators, Wei Suo discovered another pile of Spiritual Stones and two shields equivalent to the Black Turtle Shield.
One was a heavy Small Profound Iron Shield. As for the other, it was a Cloud Piercing Shield created by the Cloud Piercing Python’s skull.
After fighting with Wen Daoge, Wei Suo now felt that no matter how many such defensive shields he had, it would not be too many. After all, he possessed a Treasure Receiving Pocket to put them in.
Other than some ordinary items, Wei Suo was pleased to discover from the possessions of these three men a skill technique book that taught a so-called Earth God True Technique.
This earth elemental skill technique was actually a golem summoning skill technique. There was a total of five different stages.
For the first stage, a level three Divine Sea Stage cultivator would be able to learn it. As long as one was in a place with earth and rocks, one would be able to summon an extraordinary earth golem.
For the second stage, a level four Divine Sea Stage cultivator would be able to learn it. It allowed one to instantly summon two earth golems.
For the third stage, the requirement was level one Heavenly Circuit Stage. It would allow one to summon a rock golem, a golem several times more powerful and tough than an earth golem.
For the fourth stage, only cultivators above level three Heavenly Circuit Stage could learn it. At that time, one could summon a thirty to forty foot tall giant rock golem.
As for the final stage, the requirement learning it was reaching the Thought Division Stage. This allowed the user to, if in ordinary locations, summon an even larger and more ferocious giant rock golem. However, if the user was to use this technique in a special location, for example in a place filled with lava, the user could summon an even more powerful lava giant rock golem.
Adding on all the possessions, the purple gowned old daoist had a total of over eight thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones, the horse-faced cultivator had over three thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones, the black cloaked cultivator had over two thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones, the single-eyed cultivator was another two thousand plus Low Quality Spiritual Stones, Three Rounds Liu had a thousand five hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones, Wen Daoge over five thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones, the short and stout daoist over four thousand, the green faced skinny old man over three thousand and the final three cultivators had over six thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones.
Adding all of them together, there was over Thirty three thousand five hundred plus Low Quality Spiritual Stones. The High, Mid and Low Quality Spiritual Stones were all stacked up together by Wei Suo. Looking at those Spiritual Stones, Wei Suo was about to cry.
In his entire lifetime, he had never seen this many Spiritual Stones before him.
‘Fuck, I’ve finally became a Ten Thousand Spiritual Stones-aire. Even if I don’t consider all those rare half Spirit level artifacts that I’ve obtained and just consider the Spiritual Stones, I’ve already struck it rich completely.’
‘The most important matter is that there’s five Mind Devouring Bug eggs.’
That cyan clothed middle-aged scholarly cultivator seemed to have an understanding for these Mind Devouring Bugs. On their way back to the Spirit Peak City, he had told Wei Suo that these Mind Devouring Bug eggs seemed to be just born and would take about a month to hatch. Thus, Wei Suo was at ease when he placed these five Mind Devouring Bug eggs before him. Otherwise, upon thinking of the appearance of those Mind Devouring Bugs, if a couple Mind Devouring Bug eggs were to suddenly hatch, then Wei Suo’s scalp would definitely be numb.
At this moment, Wei Suo had two Beast Slaving Bags on him. Much less two, if he could just tame a single grown Mind Devouring Bug like how that single-eyed cultivator managed to tame his demonic beasts, then he would be extremely powerful, so much that it would be a waste for him to not go and kill others for their property.
Bringing an invisible Mind Devouring Bug with him, greeting another with a smile on his face and then sneakily prick them with the Mind Devouring Bug. Wei Suo felt that this was extremely insidious just thinking about it. His palm was even sweating.
“These things actually have different sizes?”
Wei Suo placed the five Mind Devouring Bug eggs in a row on the Silverthread Grass woven mat before Wei Suo. He clearly saw that there were differences between the sizes of the eggs. Among the five eggs, there was one that was obviously a size bigger than the rest. It looked that bold and powerful even though it was just an egg. Once it hatched, it would definitely be a bit more ferocious than the other MInd Devouring Bugs. There was one that was the smallest. Compared to the largest egg, it was only half the size. This had caused Wei Suo to suspect whether the Mind Devouring Bug might die prematurely after hatching from the egg.
How should I control these Mind Devouring Bug eggs after they hatch? How should I breed them?
After Wei Suo inspected these five eggs, he impatiently opened the single eyed cultivator’s incomplete Beast Slaving Booklet.
Once Wei Suo flipped to the page regarding the Mind Devouring Bugs, he took a glance at it and became unable to contain himself. With his eye wide open, he shouted ‘fuck,’ and then rapidly flipped the page back to check the previous pages. After he finished flipping the pages, Wei Suo had a dejected expression on his face.
This incomplete Beast Slaving Booklet contained real detailed information about how to raise Mind Devouring Bugs. For example, it mentioned that if one wished to level up one’s Mind Devouring Bug, one should have it suck the brains of certain demonic beasts and give it certain types of medicinal herbs.
As to how to control them, this Beast Slaving Booklet only contained a single method of controlling them for all demonic beasts — carrot and stick, the method of using punishment and rewards to entice the demonic beast and forcibly tame it. If it listened, then it would be fed with food. If it didn’t, then it would receive a beating.
This caused Wei Suo to want to cry.
Had it been other demonic beasts, then perhaps he could use this sort of method. However, how could he use this sort of method to deal with the Mind Devouring Bugs? Is he to bring several hundred White Phosphorous Beast’s bone powder and continuously scatter them about so that he could train them?
The matter that caused Wei Suo to want to cry but have no tears even more was that this incomplete Beast Slaving Booklet contained a warning stating that slaving beasts was a dangerous task and the cultivator should be cautious when doing so and to not forget to feed them certain things. Otherwise, if the demonic beast grew hungry, then they might even try to bite and eat their owner. Had it been other demonic beasts, then a bite or two might be fine. However, for the Mind Devouring Bugs, if he was to forget about feeding them and they decide to suck on his brain, then wouldn’t he turn into an idiot afterwards? Furthermore, the booklet also listed that the brain matter of cultivators was also a tonic that would allow the MInd Devouring Bugs to level up faster. Wei Suo did not wish to become the tonic for the things that he raised just like that.
It was clear that this was an incomplete booklet from ancient times. That was because Wei Suo knew, that without even having the green gown old man reminding him, that there were sects that would slave demonic beasts using skill techniques that allowed them to control the demonic beasts with their spirit awareness. Only through using those type of skill techniques would one be able to gain complete control over the demonic beasts. Like that, not only would it be more secure when facing enemies with one’s demonic beast, the demonic beast would also listen to its owner completely.
However, Wei Suo only had about a month before these eggs hatched. Where exactly could he find such a skill technique? With a sullen face, Wei Suo began to rack his brains.
