Hearing that the fire clouds problem could be resolved, and it could greatly weaken the strength of the fire spirits, everyone was naturally overjoyed.
After some discussions, most of them finally agreed to the plan to eliminate the fire spirit tribe.
Even if these mutated fire spirits were not weak in strength, they were only at the Condensation Period. Since these outer disciples could come here, they weren’t weaker at all. They wouldn’t be afraid.
After all, this risk was definitely worth taking compared with a large amount of contribution points.
“Since no one has any opinions, I will leave the 20 people to cooperate with Chen Deng in setting up a large array to expel the fire clouds. The rest will follow me directly into this canyon to seize the treasure.
The dark-skinned man distributed as such.
“One thing must be stated clearly in advance. In the end, when we get this treasure, the contribution points we get will be a lot. Although everyone present has a share, they must be distributed according to their work. Those who are setting up the array with me are taking less risk, so you will only get the one-third contribution points of those who charge into the canyon. Those who are going in there to kill the fire spirits and get the treasure naturally get more contribution points because they are taking greater risk.” Chen Deng added solemnly.
Regarding the distribution of contribution points, everyone did not have much opinion.
Some disciples who thought they were capable of course were willing to rush directly into the canyon. In this way, not only could they get a lot of contribution points, but they could also get a lot of essence cores by killing the fire spirits.
As for those who were previously injured and cautious, most of them expressed their willingness to follow Chen Deng in charge of maintaining the array.
At this time, Chen Deng had taken out a stack of five-color formation flags and disk arrays from his sleeve and began to distribute them to the outer disciples maintaining the array.
After Liu Ming thought for a moment, he immediately got up and walked toward Chen Deng without hesitation. After receiving a set of formation flags, he stood aside and waited.
Zang Xuan was a little surprised by Liu Ming’s actions, but he also walked toward Chen Deng to get a set of formation flags after contemplating.
Yan Ming and Xue Yun saw this situation, then they discussed a little and joined the array maintaining group as well.
After Chen Deng distributed the formation flags, he began to tell Liu Ming and others about the position of the array and the gestures to activate it. While talking, he held a green jade disk array to measure something.
Although this cloud array technique was not very complicated, in order to disperse the fire clouds over the entire canyon, itsw area wouldn’t be too small. Therefore, he needed to deduce it repeatedly to avoid accidents.
No one noticed that, hundreds of meters deep underground where everyone gathered, a small crimson beast that looked like a vole suddenly burst open. Its flesh and blood turned into a blood mist that dipped into the mud and disappeared.
Those Taiqing Sect’s outer disciples started to act according to the plan.
In the depths of the Grand Canyon, more than ten miles away from where everyone gathered, there were crimson fire attribute spirit stones in a huge pit the size of acres.
In the center of the pit, there was a huge and translucent crystal pillar about three hundred meters tall and had the thickness of a water tank. It was constantly emitting a strange red glow.
On the top of the crystal column, there was a huge human-shaped fire spirit sitting cross-legged. The size of this fire spirit was far larger than that of the same kind. It was as tall as twenty meters. The color of the flame surrounding it was darker than the ordinary flame, which made it look dark red. It faintly exuded the aura of the Crystallization Period.
Near the huge crystal pillar, there were hundreds of human-shaped fire spirits sitting densely. Each of the fire spirits was breathing desperately to absorb the strange red lights emanating from the crystal pillar.
For every strand of light they breathed in, the flames of these fire spirits became brighter, and the aura they exuded also gradually became stronger.
Most of the red glows emitted by the crystal pillar was absorbed by the giant fire spirit, making the aura on its body even more terrifying.
Suddenly, the huge fire spirit moved, and the flames all over his body were ragings. It then opened its eyes, revealing a pair of gray-white eyeballs that were very different from other fire spirits, and they were full of bloodthirsty.
“Taiqing Sect, kill, kill, kill…”
The giant fire spirit was originally full of flames, and the vague face suddenly showed a big bloody mouth. It let out a vague and hoarse voice. Although the voice was sharp and strange, it seemed to be human language.
The ordinary fire spirits around made a commotion along with this sound as they were all stimulated. After a while, all their eyes became violent, and there were bursts of sharp howlings. Suddenly, there were rumbling echoes everywhere in the mine.
In the thick fire clouds around the huge pit, all kinds of low beast roars suddenly came out. Black shadows flashed out at the same time; one, two, ten, and hundred fire spirits. In a blink of an eye, dense spirit beasts swarmed out.
The entire fire spirit tribe had thousands of beast hordes gathered, including dozens of Condensation Period fire spirit beasts. The Taiqing Sect disciples outside didn’t even notice this, otherwise they would definitely run as far as they could. How would they dare to invade this fire spirit tribe.
Fire fox, fire snake, fire crow and other fire spirit beasts gathered around the big pit. The pit became silent abruptly as if they were waiting for something.
Somewhere on the peak of Thousands Spirit Mountain, in the hall at the entrance of Small Flame World, Jiang Zhong and other masters were all having gloomy expression. They looked at the teleportation array in the center of the hall from time to time.
There was a token floating in front of the eight people at this moment, but they had all broken apart.
The giant array in the center of the main hall had a deep crack out of thin air. The rune above was also dim without any spiritual power. Eight array mages wearing white robes were busy repairing the array.
“Master Dai, how long will it take to repair the transportation?” Jiang Zhong asked suddenly.
“Brother Jiang, the material and pattern used in this array connected to the Small Flame World are very special. If it is only repairing it, the time required is not too long, but to increase its transportation power, it at least needs twelve hours.” One of the gray-haired array mage raised his head and replied blankly, then he lowered his head and continued to work.
“It still needs a day at least? In this case, the disciples in Small Flame World may not be able to persist for such a long time, I’m afraid the casualty will be huge.” The old man with yellow eyebrows of the Fengling Courtyard heard this, and his face turned dark. He then took out a white jade disk. A line of silver fuzzy small characters appeared on the surface.
“A huge change in aura; unable to teleport; mutated fire spirit; group of beasts attack…”
“Brother Chen doesn’t have to worry too much. Chen Deng has a profound cultivation, and he is also proficient in the art of array. Moreover, he also has the treasure you have given to protect him, I think there shouldn’t be any major problems. Besides, this time, if it weren’t for Chen Deng, we probably couldn’t know the change in the Small Flame World can destroy this array and these Sky Green Mirrors.” The women in colorful clothes among them said.
“This brat just hurriedly sent these little messages, then there is no more news from him, but what I’m most worried about is not this. Do you all still remember the traitor disciple who stole Three Taste during and sneaked into the Small Flame World with a group of outer disciples during the last entry trial, then he was being killed by the law enforcement hall disciples?” Fengling Courtyard’s master shook his head and said in a deep voice.
“What? Brother Chen meant that this Small Flame World mutation is related to this matter?” The woman was surprised when she heard this, and said in surprise.
After hearing this, several other people looked odd.
“This is indeed possible. I remember that the traitor disciple blew himself up immediately before he was caught, and even his soul was blown away. However, the Three Taste True Flame Cauldron that was supposed to be with him disappeared. It hasn’t been found yet.” Jiang Zhong gave a light cough, glanced at the woman in colorful clothes, and said.
The young woman felt Jiang Zhong’s gaze and snorted, but she said nothing.
“Indeed, it is said that for this matter, the people in the law enforcement hall at that time quietly ran through the entire Small Flame World, but they still found nothing. Fortunately, the sect master later asked a Taiqing Sect’s guest to calculate its whereabouts and knew that this treasure isn’t in the hands of the outsiders.” The old man with yellow eyebrows narrowed his eyes and said slowly.
“Brother Chen meant that the Three Taste True Flame Cauldron is actually still hidden in the Small Flame World, so it causes such a change?” The woman’s eyes flashed with surprise.
“Hehe, this is the only explanation. What kind of treasure is the Three Taste True Flame Cauldron? Its attribute is even more powerful in the Small Flame World. It is an extremely simple thing to cause a huge change in natural aura. Now I only hope that the disciples who have entered Small Flame World can temporarily protect themselves and hold on for a while.
Fengling Courtyard’s master glanced at the unrepaired magic circle, and said with a sigh.
“Since this matter may be involved in the Three Taste True Flame Cauldron, do I have to notify the superior too?” Among the eight masters, the young woman in green shirt who had never spoken, said with a smile.
“Don’t you know how well-informed those guys in law enforcement hall are? Do they still need us to inform them? They most probably know about the abnormal change in the Small Flame World.” Jiang Zhong said lightly.
As soon as he said this, several other masters, including the old man with yellow eyebrows, suddenly showed a thoughtful look.
In Small Flame World, Liu Ming and more than 20 disciples were now following the orders of Chen Deng. They were busy burying the formation flags and disk array in the ground, setting up a huge array of the size of acres.
According to Chen Deng’s deduction, to disperse the fire clouds over the canyon, more than 20 people need to activate the array at the same time to be able to drive away the fire clouds.
After more than an hour, when the whole array was finally completed, more than 20 disciples entered the array at the same time. They stood in their respective positions, then they began to channel the array equipment in their hands to activate the whole array.
