Suddenly, Liu Ming made a sword gesture. The Void Sword emerged with a dazzling golden light. A powerful sword qi rose into the sky, stirring up a huge spiritual fluctuation.
The 4 gufeng birds were about to attack the 3. After feeling the overwhelming sword qi, they let out a long chirp, turned around and stared at Liu Ming.
Liu Ming changed his sword gesture and tapped at the golden sword light. The sword light split in half then into 4 golden sword lights of 50 meters long. Each sword light was launched at each of the giant gray birds.
The 4 gufeng birds seemed to feel a sense of crisis. They just flapped their wings to release gray beastkin air to cover the sky in front, trying to take the opportunity to flee.
Liu Ming had already killed several gufeng birds before, so he was already clear about their escape move. He changed a gesture; the 4 sword lights split and drew confusing golden sword shadows.
Immediately afterward, a few crisp sounds occurred!
4 golden sword lights pierced through the head of the 4 gufeng birds.
After the 4 giant birds whined, they fell to the ground one after another.
At the next moment, the 4 sword lights combined back into the golden flying sword and returned to Liu Ming’s hand.
From Liu Ming revealing his figure, releasing the Void Flying Sword, to killing the 4 gufeng birds with ease, it was just a few seconds.
This made the 3 gray-robed men who hadn’t made any solid plan speechless.
Liu Ming fell from the air and landed on the side of the 4 gufeng bird corpses, and wisps of gray mist emanated from these corpses were absorbed by Liu Ming’s luck lock.
“It’s a Taiqing Sect’s disciple!” After seeing the green robe on Liu Ming, how would they not know Liu Ming’s identity? Their faces showed a mixture of fear and suspicion.
After all, the disciples who could be selected by the 4 ancient sects to participate in the Tianmen Conference were all real powerhouses. They were not comparable to the disciples selected by the small and medium sects.
Among them, the fat young man moved 1 step back subconsciously.
“Don’t act rashly. This person is extremely strong. It is definitely not something we can deal with. Don’t even want to run away. It will only kill you.” The Crystallization Period intermediate stage man glared at him and said in voice transmission.
This man was obviously quite prestigious; the other 2 immediately stood there obediently, not daring to move casually anymore.
The man in the intermediate stage of the Crystallization Period saw Liu Ming finally turned around to look at them, then he took a deep breath, stepped forward, cupped his fist and said respectfully,
“Wang Jing of the Di Zang Sect greets mister.”
“Di Zhang Sect? The 3 of you come to participate in the Tianmen Convention with such strength, the danger is not small.” Liu Ming said faintly while looking at the three of them.
“Mister is right. We also have to thank mister for killing those gufeng birds for us.” The man at the intermediate stage of the Crystallization Period bowed respectfully.
“I was just helping out along the way.” Liu Ming said with a smile, then he glanced at their luck locks.
“Mis… mister, we are from a small sect. We just want to accumulate some luck for our sect through the Tianmen Convention. If mister wants to take some luck from us, we will hand it over to you.” The young man in a gray robe was shocked by Liu Ming’s gaze, and he said hurriedly and earnestly.
When Liu Ming heard the words, he smiled slightly.
However, this smile was like a sword against their throats, making them burst into cold sweat.
“Just go.” Liu Ming finally said.
“What… mister, you…
The Crystallization Period intermediate stage middle-aged man was startled by the words. The other 2 were also stunned for a while.
“Why, do you want me to see you off?” Liu Ming said with a cold voice and a gloomy face.
“No, no, thank you mister.” The Crystallization Period intermediate stage middle-aged man reacted in an instant. How dare he said otherwise?
After the 3 of them cupped their fists, they flew away hurriedly in 3 gray escape lights for fear that Liu Ming would renege.
Liu Ming looked at them leaving with a blank face, then he slowly landed onto the cliff and plucked the moro flower.
Obviously, their luck locks looked dim and didn’t have much luck, so he didn’t bother to rob their luck.
After a while, Liu Ming turned into a golden light again and continued to fly forward.
The spiritual materials here were so rich that he naturally wouldn’t leave here. For the next few days, he continued to search for various spiritual things in the valley.
On the afternoon of the third day, toward the evening, Liu Ming was slowly flying close to the ground. Suddenly, he raised his eyebrows slightly as he stopped the escape light.
Just now, Bone Scorpion in the soul-recovering bag suddenly transmitted a sentence to him, making him delightful.
“Xie’er, did you just say that there is a kind of rare spiritual mine under this pile of rocks?” As Liu Ming said, he slapped the soul-recovering bag. A black gas rolled out and turned into a slim girl in black tulle; it was Xie’er.
Liu Ming stomped the ground slightly with his foot, then he scanned the ground below with Divine Thought, but he didn’t seem to notice any difference here.
“It can’t be wrong, master! There is a very rare yellow fluorite mineral vein at a depth of 300 meters below the ground. I can clearly feel it, and this mineral vein should be about 4 miles long. If we dig out these yellow fluorites, they should be enough to pile up a small hill.” Xie’er pursed her mouth and smiled, and she showed an eager look on her face.
Liu Ming was overjoyed when he heard this!
This yellow fluorite was a kind of hard and precious ore. The price was quite expensive. A fist-sized yellow fluorite was worth thousands of spirit stones. According to Xie’er, if it was piled up into a small hill, the total value was no less than tens of millions. Besides, this kind of ore was widely used in forging high level spiritual weapons, there was no need to worry about not being able to sell it.
“However, we can’t stay here for too long, is there any way to collect these spiritual mines as soon as possible?” Liu Ming asked after thinking.
In this Tianmen Secret Realm, time was very precious. If he spent a lot of time here, it would be more than worthwhile.
“Master forgot that I can easily control rock and soil after I advanced. It’s just that there are so many spiritual mines, I’m afraid it will take a long time for me to move them to the ground.” Xie’er smiled and said confidently.
“About how long?” Liu Ming raised his eyebrows.
“Master, if Xie’er fully exerts the power to control soil, it will take at least 2… to 3 hours to dig out the entire mineral vein.” Xie’er thought for a moment and replied.
“Okay, then you go, I can take a break here.” Liu Ming was slightly relieved when he heard that it only took 2 to 3 hours, then he commanded without thinking.
After Xie’er agreed, black flame rolled out from her. She spun and turned into a giant silver scorpion that was 10 meters in size. She crossed her pincers, then she dug into the ground.
Seeing this, Liu Ming flew to the open space not far away, took a golden yuan pill and sat cross-legged.
After a while, there was a sound of rock shaking from beneath the ground. Bone Scorpion had already started to dig out the yellow fluorite.
After a quarter of an hour, strands of gray flame slowly came out from below the ground and went into his luck lock.
“Xie’er, what’s going on?” Liu Ming’s expression moved, and he immediately asked through mental power.
“Master, there are a lot of Condensation Period silver beetles underneath, so I eliminated them as well.” Xie’er panted slightly in Liu Ming’s ears.
“Okay, be more careful. If you encounter a high rank beastkin worm, remember not to fight with it and let me know quickly.” Liu Ming felt relieved and instructed Bone Scorpion.
It seemed that if the spiritual pet of the cultivator killed the beastkin, he would also gain the luck.
“Understood, Master, don’t worry!”
Liu Ming hid his aura. While recovering his spiritual power, he released Divine Thought to be wary of the surrounding environment.
After a quarter of an hour, with a rumbling sound, a crack was split open on the ground, and a bunch of yellow crystal stones flew out from it. The big ones were as big as human heads, and the smaller ones were just like walnuts.
Regardless of the size, each crystal stone emitted a blurry yellow light. Inside the crystal stone, there was even a hairlike golden light, which was very beautiful.
“What a pure yellow fluorite…” Liu Ming opened his eyes slightly, and his Divine Thought scanned through the crystal stones. A thick earth attribute spirit hit his face. He immediately revealed a hint of satisfaction.
As soon as he raised his sleeves, a ray of light rolled out to collect all the yellow fluorites into the Sumeru Ring.
In this way, every 15 minutes after that, he would collect the yellow fluorites once. After 2 and a half hours, Bone Scorpion got out of the ground and turned back into the girl in black tulle again.
It was just that her charming face was faintly pale at this moment. She kept panting. Obviously, she had used a lot of spiritual power and physical strength.
“Xie’er, thanks for your hard work, go back to your bag and have a good rest.” Liu Ming smiled slightly and praised.
“Master, this is my job.” Xie’er’s face was blushed, then she flew back into the soul-recovering bag in black gas.
Liu Ming scanned the Sumeru Ring with Divine Thought. The yellow fluorites already piled up like a small mountain in it, occupying a quarter of the entire Sumeru Ring.
So many yellow fluorites, they should roughly be worth more than 30 million spirit stones.
He was immediately in a good mood.
Just as Liu Ming got up and planned to continue on the road, he frowned and looked at another mountain.
There was a flash of silver light on the horizon in the distance which seemed to be an escape light. It was coming in his direction.
TL: Did someone notice the noise caused by digging the yellow fluorites?
