As soon as the tiger head phantasm came into contact with the red pincer shadow, they both burst open.
At the same time, Liu Ming’s right hand touched the looming sword pouch and launched several symbols swiftly into the sword pouch.
An inaudible whistle came from the void attribute sword pouch!
After the surrounding space compressed for a moment, a cluster of golden light rushed out and disappeared in an instant, but the nearby air seemed to be slashed apart with ripples.
The Celestial State human form Hellish-Insect raised his ears in shock. He interrupted the attack against the white-browed scholar and dodged to the side. A red light burst out from his body, his pincer arms circled like a wheel, protecting every vital point on his body.
Liu Ming groaned and pointed forward, then a golden light ball emerged behind the Celestial State human form Hellish-Insect.
The Celestial State human form Hellish-Insect stagnated in the air, and a faint sword shadow flashed, swiped on its neck and disappeared.
The Celestial State human form Hellish-Insect showed disbelief. He mumbled a strange voice indistinctly, and his arms were slashed off with his head. Then the head and arms were disintegrated into a black blood mist in the air.
Several Real Pellet State Hellish-Insects that flew to the edge of the forest no longer looked ferocious after witnessing the Celestial State Hellish-Insect being killed. They all turned around and wanted to escape immediately.
The existence that could kill the Celestial State intermediate stage, how could Real Pellet State Hellish-Insects like them could resist?
At this moment, the golden ball disappeared again in a flash.
The next moment, the space in front of the Real Pellet State later stage one horn beetle Hellish-Insect fluctuated, and the golden ball emerged silently. At the same time, a looming sword shadow swept past before disappearing again.
The one horn beetle Hellish-Insect shrilled unwillingly, and its head left its huge body in an instant and fell heavily on the ground.
From the appearance of Liu Ming to the release of Sword Maru to kill 2 high rank Hellish-Insect Clan powerhouses. It took only a moment. Everyone present was stunned.
“I’ll leave the rest of the Hellish-Insects to you all!” Liu Ming glanced at the others and said indifferently, then he waved 1 hand. The small golden ball flashed in front of him and was kept in the void attribute sword pouch, then it disappeared together with the sword pouch.
Ouyang Qian and the others reacted after hearing the words, then they immediately flew in the direction of the rest of the Hellish-Insects who hadn’t fled far away with dozens of Crystallization Period disciples behind them.
Liu Ming just hovered in mid-air. Looking at the Hellish-Insect corpses on the ground, he released a black air to extract the cores of the Real Pellet State Hellish-Insect and the Celestial State Hellish-Insect.
Looking at the group of human cultivators going away, he showed a hint of thought.
He was quite satisfied with the effect of Sword Maru’s first use after fully nourished. However, with his pure spiritual power at the Real Pellet State later stage, he only activated Sword Maru for a few seconds, then his spiritual power was consumed by 1/3, which made him a little speechless.
A few days later, the battle in the Xuanmeng Mountain Range finally came to an end. Liu Ming was summoned by the sect and returned to the Thousands Spirit Mountain Range by the teleportation array.
When he had just returned to the cave house in the Mountain Futu, he suddenly raised his eyebrows, glanced at the soul-recovering bag on his waist and released a trace of Divine Thought into it.
After a while, Liu Ming was overjoyed. He took out the cores he obtained from the Real Pellet Stage and Celestial State Hellish-Insects and threw them into the soul-recovering bag.
But after he pondered for a while, he seemed to feel that something was wrong amiss. He took out a few emerald bottles and threw them into the soul-recovering bag before whispering to himself,
“It seems that Xie’er is about to break through the bottleneck.”
1 year later.
In the north of the Middle Sky Continent, in a rather hidden gourd-shaped valley adjacent to the vast snow-capped mountains.
The valley was covered with thick snow, but it did not affect the abundant spirit in the valley. There was also a strong fragrance of herbs everywhere.
This was the Divine Farmer Valley, a thousands of years old ancient sect that was famous in refining elixirs.
At this time, in the depths of the valley, in a hall built against the mountain.
This hall was about hundreds of meters in size. Although most of it was inside the mountain, the arrangement was quite ingenious. Some tree roots as thick as 2 people were neatly scattered throughout the hall, acting as pillars. Numerous fist-sized white stones were hung on the roots of the tree, emitting white light to illuminate all the corners.
In front of the main seat, there was already an old man in green clothes exuding a strong medicinal fragrance. He was the current owner of the Divine Farmer Valley, Wen Kurong.
Although this person only had Real Pellet State intermediate stage cultivation, he was famous in the Middle Sky Continent. Some people might not know the names of the 2 Celestial State elders in the Divine Farmer Valley, but they must know the Valley Master Wen who had superb pill-refining skills.
There were already several people sitting on the chairs on both sides of the main hall, and a young man in gray was the Mystic Comprehending State Transcendent Xuan Yu of the Taiqing Sect.
Sitting beside him was a thick-browed muscular man wearing a brown bear robe. Judging by his attire, he should be the Sky Beastkin Valley cultivator.
There were 3 people sitting on the other side; a beautiful young woman wearing a yellow robe of the Nature Work Sect, a thin old man wearing a black robe of Demon Mystic Sect, and a middle-aged man in a scholar robe with white eyebrows and a long beard.
The aura emanating from these 4 people was not inferior to Grand Elder Xuan Yu. They were all Mystic Comprehending State powerhouses.
In addition, under the white stones hanging from the tree roots in the hall, there was a human form phantasm wearing various costumes. Judging from their appearance, they were the pillars of the Middle Sky Continent’s major forces.
“Valley Master Wen, you gathered us here so urgently, is the plan ready now?” A human form phantasm in brocade clothes showed a clear expression and said with a calm smile.
“Senior Beidou is really well-informed. There is really nothing that can hide from you. Thanks everyone for trusting the Divine Farmer Valley. For the safety of the entire continent, we also went all out. After spending countless manpower and material resources, I just developed this dose of poison a few days ago. Now everything is ready, and it can be mass-produced at any time.” The old man in green on the main seat replied respectfully as he took out a thumb-sized black jade bottle.
The big hand full of vicissitudes moved toward the air casually, and a cloud of gray mist supported the black jade bottle in the air.
Everyone looked at the black jade bottle with different expressions.
“It seems that seniors still have some doubts. According to your requirements, this poison is harmless to our human race. Why don’t I test it for you now? But please restrain your aura, so as not to frighten the experimental Hellish-Insect.” Looking at the doubts on the faces of everyone, Valley Master Wen said with confidence, then he swiped his index finger to open the cap of the black jade bottle. The bottle tilted toward the ground, and a drop of emerald liquid dropped out. A strange smell immediately filled the hall.
Several Mystic Comprehending State powerhouses including Grand Elder Xuan Yu restrained their aura as requested and squinted to observ more carefully.
Vaster Master Wen had been prepared for it. He pinched a white bag around his waist with his left hand, and a black light came out in an instant. Immediately, several low rank black beetle Hellish-Insects emerged under the bottle, showing their fangs at everyone.
Before these Hellish-Insects took one more step, several white halos flashed out, instantly covering these Hellish-Insects and separating them. Although they all looked ferocious, they could only glare.
Then the old man in green pointed slightly, and a drop of poison the size of a fingernail flew toward one of the beetle Hellish-Insect.
The beetle Hellish-Insect was already furious. Seeing the green light dot in front, it swallowed it.
In an instant, the beetle Hellish-Insect’s eyes turned red. After rolling on the ground a few seconds, it was suddenly dead.
Immediately afterward, the old man in green raised his hand, and the several white halos surrounding the other beetle Hellish-Insects merged into one. The remaining Hellish-Insects circled around the dead beetle.
These Hellish-Insects gnawed on the corpse without any scruples.
The few remaining Hellish-Insects just took a bite, and they were immediately dead like the beetle just now.
Those human form phantasms were startled by this. They all looked at the black jade bottle with disbelief.
“Hehe, Divine Farmer Valley is really reliable. This poison can actually blend into the Hellish-Insect’s blood without reducing its potency. If a Hellish-Insect is poisoned, its blood will turn into poison quickly too. With the ferocity of the Hellish-Insect Clan, when they devour their own kind in the war, the poison will keep spreading. With such a plague, even if the Hellish-Insect Clan has the number advantage, it will only be a matter of time before they are completely wiped out without the antidote!” Seeing this, the Demon Mystic Sect’s thin old man said with bright eyes.
“Senior Situ is absolutely right! Moreover, We have also prepared a dose of supportive medicinal powder. If you use it at the right time, it can instantly make the low rank Hellish-Insects go berserk. This way, it will agitate the Hellish-Insects even more and greatly speed up the spread of poison in the Hellish-Insect Clan.” The old man in green smiled softly and said quite confidently.
TL: But the problem is the Mystic Comprehending State Mother Hellish-Insect, no?
