Although this elixir had very little effect on him now, his cultivation had reached a bottleneck and he was about to enter the Evil Ghost Way. It was still good to be strengthened even a little.
According to Liu Ming’s estimation, if he could take 30 jingang bone tempering pills, his body strength should be improved by about 10%.
With his current physical body, not to mention increasing it by 10%, it would be extremely difficult to strengthen his body by 5%.
As for the remaining elixir, he could let Xie’er consume. Xie’er was a bone spiritual pet, so the jingang bone tempering pill should have wonderful effects on her.
Thinking of this, Liu Ming couldn’t help feeling very good. He continued to wander around the market and purchased some other materials for refining the jingang bone tempering pill. However, the Copper Sun Market was relatively small, and there were a few materials that were not collected.
Next, he also bought a detailed map around the Copper Sun Market. After some research, he found that Nanlu City was more than 5,000 kilometers southwest of Copper Sun Market. In the middle, he had to pass through a small mountain called Wu Mountain.
Geographically, Wu Mountain was at the end of the Copper Sun Mountain Range.
Nanlu City was a city mixed with mortals and cultivators. It was the capital of a medium-sized mortal kingdom, Jiang Kingdom.
Half a day had passed quickly.
Half a day later, the sky was getting dark. The shops in the market began to light up moonstones one after another. Instead of decreasing, the flow of people in the market increased a lot.
Liu Ming walked out of a material shop, then he walked toward the Treasure Gather Pavilion.
“Mr. Ye is finally here! Although our Copper Sun market is small, people with discernment can still find some good things in it.” Outside the Treasure Gather Pavilion, Zuo Gongquan immediately laughed and spoke as soon as Liu Ming showed up.
“I indeed found some rare things, but it’s not a treasure.” Liu Ming smiled and responded casually.
“Congratulations then. Let’s not delay and go now.” Zuo Gongquan said.
Liu Ming nodded slightly, then they turned into 2 escape lights that flew far away.
Although the Copper Sun Market had an anti-flying enchantment, it had no effect on them.
The crowd in the market suddenly exclaimed in amazement when they saw their escape lights.
Soon, they disappeared into the dark night.
“From here to the southwest, we will reach Nanlu City, but we have to pass Wu Mountain in the middle. Although the mountain is not big, there are also some Crystallization Period and Real Pellet State beastkins there. Mr. Ye should not be careless.” In midair, Zuo Gongquan reminded Liu Ming with a serious face.
“Thank you for the reminder.” Liu Ming’s eyes flashed slightly as he replied.
The 2 escape lights quickly came to the mountainous area.
Such a dark night had little influence on a cultivator who was above the Crystallization Period.
Liu Ming could easily see the situation of the mountains below.
Just in terms of size, the Wu Mountain was not huge, but the rocks were all black, inexplicably exuding a hint of unpleasant coolness.
As Zuo Gongquan said, this place seemed to be filled with a peculiar energy, which was slightly different from the general natural aura. There were also waves of intense beastkin fluctuation in the mountain.
Liu Ming was about to raise the height of the escape light when a beastkin wind from below made the surrounding airflow roll violently.
At the same time, there was a sharp shrill from below.
Liu Ming was taken aback. A giant black figure soared into the sky and charged at him like a sharp arrow.
He squinted, and he instantly saw the true body of the black figure. It was a giant beastkin eagle of 30 meters in size. Its body was entangled with a thick beastkin aura. Judging from the spiritual light of the black feathers, this was definitely a Real Real Pellet State beastkin!
“Be careful, Mr. Ye. This is the Yin Demon Eagle, the beastkin of the Real Pellet State!” Zuo Gongquan reminded him loudly, then he dodged to the side and launched a giant flame blade at the beastkin.
Although the black eagle beastkin was huge, it was very agile. The black wings just flapped slightly, and it sped up and dodged the giant flame blade.
The next moment, the black eagle beastkin bit at Liu Ming.
For some unknown reason, it seemed to be targeting Liu Ming only!
Liu Ming looked at Zuo Gongquan thoughtfully, then he released a black gas that transformed into a and with a wave of one hand, a cloud of black energy burst out, transforming into a ghost head staff full of demonic qi.
A loud bang!
The ghost head staff turned into a 3 meters tall ferocious ghost and blocked the attack of the eagle beastkin.
He obtained this ghost head staff when he killed a demonic cultivator before. Since he disguised into a demonic cultivator, using the ghost technique of Dragon Tiger Hell Prison would easily expose him.
The black eagle beastkin extended 2 giant iron claws, clutched the evil ghost and threw it away.
“Puff“, the evil ghost turned back into the staff after losing the spiritual power.
The eagle beastkin spouted a black light at Liu Ming at the same time.
Liu Ming’s figure flicked and vanished into thin air. The black light launched by the eagle beastkin missed.
The next moment, his figure appeared behind the black eagle beastkin like a teleportation, then he clawed with 10 sharp black lights on his fingers.
A tearing sound!
10 deep wounds were visible on the back of the eagle beastkin. The feathers were falling along with the blood.
The eagle beastkin let out a painful shrill, then it flapped and launched countless black wind blades. The surrounding area of 300 meters turned into a pitch black world.
Liu Ming was about to make another heavy attack to seriously injure the demon eagle, but he was staggered by the beastkin wind.
His face changed slightly. He snorted and simply retreated through the force of the wind. In a flash, he flew out of the beastkin wind, then he recalled the ghost head staff into his hand and used it to block.
Right at this moment, Zuo Gongquan groaned, and the giant crimson blade turned into 5 identical flame blades that went toward the black eagle beastkin.
The black eagle beastkin shrilled and gathered the beastkin wind into a green-black beastkin cloud.
The beastkin cloud spread out and instantly expanded several times.
Liu Ming was startled. This green-black beastkin cloud seemed to exude a deep yin qi, which seemed very different from the fierce beastkin wind around the eagle beastkin.
The next moment, the black eagle beastkin glanced at Liu Ming with deep fear. It retrieved the beastkin cloud and dived down to escape.
“Mr. Ye, this yin demon eagle is born under the special environment of Wu Mountain. Its beastkin pellet contains 2 different spiritual powers, yin qi and demonic qi, which is very rare. This is great for demonic cultivation. You must not let it go.” Zuo Gongquan shouted loudly, then he pointed. The 5 flame blades merged into a flame cloud that entangled with the beastkin cloud.
The green-black beastkin cloud was attacking on its own without the control of the eagle beastkin.
Zuo Gongquan launched a series of symbols into the flame cloud, and he barely opened a hole of a dozen meters.
Liu Ming looked down through the hole with black ripples in his eyes, then a hint of surprise appeared momentarily in his eyes.
“Haha, that’s great. My cultivation just happens to hit the bottleneck. With the power of this eagle’s beastkin pellet, maybe I can break through the bottleneck.” He laughed and pursued through the hole.
Zuo Gongquan looked at Liu Ming’s back and sneered, and he also chased after him.
Although the black eagle beastkin was injured on its back, its flying speed did not slow in the slightest. It easily went through the steep mountain and continued to escape toward the valley below.
Liu Ming was wrapped in a cloud of black air, chasing after him.
Although the speed of the eagle beastkin was extremely fast, due to the injury on the back, it was still slower than Liu Ming. After a few seconds, the distance between them was less than 30 meters.
Liu Ming groaned and released 5 waves of black gas that encircled the eagle beastkin from different directions.
The black eagle beastkin also seemed to feel that something was wrong, and its body flashed with a layer of mercury-like brilliance. Its speed doubled in an instant.
A shadow flashed, and the eagle beastkin had already flown into the valley.
Seeing this situation, Liu Ming in the back also channeled spiritual power to speed up. He already reached the valley in a flash.
At this moment, a sudden change occurred!
A black light flashed at the entrance of the valley, and a light wall more than 30 meters high and 10 meters wide suddenly emerged.
The black escape light couldn’t slow down and slam into the light wall heavily.
A muffled impact sounded!
Liu Ming was bounced back, and the black light wall only rippled a little.
The ground before the valley suddenly rose into the sky, and 4 golden light beams lit up.
The air trembled for a while. With 4 light beams as the base, a huge cylindrical array with a diameter of 30 meters was formed instantly, completely shrouding Liu Ming’s figure in it.
