As the puppet soldier fell, white halos suddenly lit up in the center of the secret room, spreading in all directions.
In the white lights, countless silver runes emerged and danced up and down around the center. After interweaving, a white light array was formed in a short time.
A light flashed, and there was a palm-size token in the center of the array.
“This is a teleportation array…” Liu Ming kept Heavy Water Droplet away and withdrew the aura of the Tiger Dragon Hell Prison. After watching the teleportation aray for a while, he contemplated in his mind.
Since the magic array appeared, it meant that he passed the test here.
However, this token was quite similar to the identity token. It should be the item to accept inner notice’s missions.
Liu Ming immediately leaned over to pick up the token and walked slowly into the array.
The teleportation array suddenly emitted a blinding glare, then the space fluctuated together.
Liu Ming only felt that the surrounding scenery was blurred for a while. When he reacted, he suddenly appeared in a corner of a wide hall.
“This should be the inner temple.” Liu Ming held the token and glanced around.
The layout here was surprisingly similar to the previous hall. Four dragon stone pillars were supporting the hall on the four corners. In the center of the hall there was also a smaller jade disc that was glowing with light silver light. There were lines of missions showing on it
It was just that the words “Xuan Notice” that appeared above the jade disc were golden.
Unlike the bustling crowd in the outer hall, there were only twenty people here, which seemed very spacious. Everyone was wearing the same gray hoodies as Liu Ming. Except for their body size, their aura couldn’t be noticed at all.
No one in the crowd spoke. Compared with the lively scene of the outer hall, there was a quiet and dull atmosphere here.
When Liu Ming Fang appeared, a few people looked at him, then turned back their heads. They were obviously not bothered by him.
Seeing this, Liu Ming didn’t care. After he walked to the crowd, he glanced around, then he cast his gaze at inner notice’s jade disc.
At the same time, in a secret room in Xuan Hall, a chubby disciple in yellow robe was half lying on a chair. He was holding a disk array with a leisurely look. Most of the jade rune on it had been broken apart, only the yellow bronze mirror in the center was still intact.
A video was being displayed in the bronze mirror. It was the scene where Liu Ming and the puppet soldier were fighting just now. The battle was not long. The two only fought for a few minutes, then the winner was determined.
The disciple in yellow robe simply looked at it. When he saw the Tiger Dragon Hell Prison, he couldn’t help but be stunned. The half-lying body sat straight up slightly.
“Which inner door is this idiot from? He is actually practicing the clumsy technique, Tiger Dragon Hell Prison, but he doesn’t even achieve the second level mastery. He is probably a new comer.” The disciple in yellow scratched his head and muttered to himself.
The fat man shook his head, then he flicked his sleeve, and the image on the bronze mirror disappeared in a flash.
He lay back in the chair lazily again. He looked for something in his arms, and he took out a roasted golden chicken leg and started eating it. He seemed to completely forget about what happened just now.
In the inner hall of Xuan Hall.
At this moment, Liu Ming had already browsed through the tasks on the jade disc one by one, and his face suddenly became serious.
The mission here was really much more dangerous than the outer notice. Most of the missions made Liu Ming feel chilly after seeing it. But in the same way, the contribution points as rewards were also extremely rich. It was far from comparable to the outer hall.
For example, there was one: Collect firewire ant’s tentacles; each tentacles reward 500 contribution points.
Liu Ming once saw in the Changfeng Association’s classics that the firewire ant was a ferocious insect beast that appeared in the volcanic area. It was about two to three meters long, and it was very difficult to deal with. Its beastkin fire was comparable to the earth lung fire. Normal spiritual weapons would be melted at the moment of contact. Its strength aws comparable to the cultivator of the Condensation Period.
If it was only that, it was still fine. The troublesome fact about this ant was that they were always in group. The number could range from 100 to 1000.
The blood locust beasts hunted by him, Xin Yuan, Fang Yao and others only had the strength of the Spirit Apostle Stage. Only the king beast was in the Condensation Period. It was only slayed under the help of an array and the sacrifice of a companion. Liu Ming even used his trump card, Golden Fallen Sand, for this mission.
Thinking of hundreds of firewire ants of the Condensation Period spraying beastkin fire, Liu Ming couldn’t help but feel numb on his scalp.
Another one: Hunt down rainbow dream butterflies and get the medicine stone in its body. Each stone rewards 1,000 contribution points.
Rainbow dream butterfly was a beastkin that resembled a butterfly. It was not strong. It was usually only around the early stage of the Condensation Period. For example, the disciples of the Condensation Period could easily kill it in 1v1 battle, and this beastkin wouldn’t appear in groups.
A medicinal stone would condense in the body of an adult male rainbow dream butterfly. This medicinal stone was an extremely effective medicinal material, and it was also one of the main materials to refine several exquisite elixirs.
Although this rainbow dream butterfly was weak in strength, this beastkin lived in the night miasma flower all year round.
The night miasma flower was a kind of exotic flower in the Middle Sky Continent. It usually grows in a humid environment and forms a sea of flowers continuously for hundreds of kilometers. At the same time, it continuously emits a highly poisonous miasma. The ordinary cultivator would end up badly if he accidentally breathes in the miasma.
Therefore, for the cultivator of the Condensation Period, hunting rainbow dream butterfly in such a place was definitely overreaching his strength.
After Liu Ming finished reading, he became speechless.
On this inner notice, he even saw the mission of hunting the blood locust king beast’s beastkin cores. The reward was not low which was about thousands of contribution points.
But without the help of his companions and array, he would not have the confidence to face the sea monster that could manipulate blood to attack again. Not to mention finding this group of blood locust beasts in the vast ocean.
Liu Ming searched for a long while. Until there were only a few people present, he finally raised the token and waved it somewhere on the notice. The inner notice cast a light at the token.
He took on a task of collecting eggs of snowclaw spiders. Each egg can be exchanged for 100 contribution points.
If he is lucky, maybe two or three times would be enough to get the contribution points needed to condense the sword embryo in Five Elements Spirit Cave.
Snowclaw spiders, such beastkins often act together in three or five. Their strength was also around the Condensation State, which was quite dangerous. However, it was much safer as compared to the firewire ants and the night miasma flower sea.
Of course, the main reason why Liu Ming chose this task was that the mission issuer directly provided the approximate range of snowclaw spiders’ appearance. It was at another mountain range not far from the Thousands Spirit Mountain Range.
After taking the mission, he didn’t plan to stay here for a long time. When he looked around, he found that there were more than a dozen small teleportation arrays in the corners of the hall.
Liu Ming immediately learned from others and stepped into a magic array. He appeared on a mountain near Xuan Hall in a flash.
He immediately took off the gray robe on his body and flew toward the Piaohong Courtyard.
After Liu Ming made some preparations and thought about the mission carefully, he set off in the morning and left Thousands Spirit Mountain.
Shortly after he left, a green light landed in front of Liu Ming’s cave house. After the light faded, a young woman wearing the inner disciple costume appeared.
This woman was only about twenty years old. She was wearing a ring-shaped hair bun. She had a beautiful nose and cherry lips, and her skin was fair and snowy. The pair of eyes were full of misty spirit. She was like a person in a drawing.
She took a closer look in front of the cave house, then nodded. She stepped forward and knocked on the two copper rings on the door.
However, the stone door didn’t have the sign of opening at all.
“It’s really bad luck. Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu is not in the cave house. It seems that I can only come again next time.” The woman muttered to herself. After calling out for a while, she found that the cave house was still closed, and she left in disappointment.
At this time, Liu Ming had already left the Thousands Spirit Mountain Range, so he naturally didn’t know anything about what happened outside the cave house.
Half a month later, he was in a mountain range stretching thousands of miles on the east side of the spirit mountain.
The mountains here look extremely tall and steep. The mountains are like huge fangs stuck in the ground. From time to time, the roar of beastkins faintly came out from them, adding a bit of strange atmosphere to this place.
The rocks on the peaks were all black-gray rough rocks. Huge old trees grew in them, and the vines entangled on them. The ground could rarely be seen.
Compared with the Thousands Spirit Mountain that was full of spirit, this place was bustling with life more. There wasn’t any spirit at all.
Liu Ming’s destination was the Black Sun Mountain Range.
At the foot of this mountain, there was a market called Black Sun Market.
Liu Ming did some research before coming. He knew that although the market was not big, it was quite famous in this area.
The reason was that the Black Sun Mountain Range was one of the closest places to the Thousands Spirit Mountain that provided beastkin materials. It was also the most frequent place that Taiqing Sect disciples visited.
There were many casual cultivators and cultivator families in the Middle Sky Continent wanted to have a relationship with the Taiqing Sect. In the long run, many foreign cultivators came. They occasionally brought some special items which were also eye-opening. This attracted even more cultivators here.
After Liu Ming landed nearby, he did not immediately enter the market. Instead, he found a secluded place nearby and replaced his Taiqing Sect disciple’s clothes with an ordinary green shirt. He was like a normal cultivator who walked in casually.
The entire Black Sun Market was surrounded by a simple city wall, covering an area about the size of a mile. Inside the market, there was a main street going east-west. On both sides were a lot of houses of different heights, including buildings, pavilions, and many more low huts. It looked very messy.
As Liu Ming walked in all the way, he found that there were many people with strange costumes in the crowd. Some even carried beastkin spirit pets beside them, which caused pedestrians to evade them, but most of them were accustomed to it.
The houses on both sides were mostly shops. The most of which were shops selling many beastkin materials. There were even some shops selling all kinds of elixir, talisman and spiritual weapon.
Liu Ming walked around the market and found a lot of rare items, such as some rare ores, medicinal materials, and beastkin cores that he had never heard of.
After walking casually for a while, he turned and walked into a shop selling maps of the Black Sun Mountain Range.
Half a quarter of an hour later, Liu Ming walked out of it with a calm expression and a mountain range map in his arms. He soon flew into the mountain range alone.
