“What does Nephew Disciple Liu plan to do next?” Elder Jiang looked at Liu Ming expectantly and asked slowly.
“No for now.” Liu Ming was silent for a while, then he said with a sigh.
In recent years, he had repeatedly killed evil cultivators, and his name was so famous that many evil cultivators had long since been hidden. It was difficult to find their traces.
Besides, hunting evil cultivators was also dangerous. This time at Wu Mountain, he was ambushed by 2 Real Pellet State cultivators. If he hadn’t been alert, he would have fallen into the trap of Thousand Illusion Demon.
Since it was not far from the 1.5 million contribution points, there was naturally no need to take too much risk. Now he planned to change his plan and go to Xuan Hall’s inner notice to take a look.
Elder Jiang smiled awkwardly before saying,
“Nephew Disciple Liu has become too famous recently, so many evil sects may have been eyeing on you. You should be careful.”
The old man’s words sounded apologetic. For a powerful inner disciple like Liu Ming, he, an ordinary deputy elder, would not dare to offend easily.
“Thank you Elder Jiang for this period of time.” After Liu Ming bowed to him, he quickly walked out of the Life and Death Pavilion.
Before going to Xuan Hall, he went back to the Fallen Serene Peak’s cave house to see Fei’er’s situation.
The last time he left, Fei’er was still asleep, so Liu Ming had been quite concerned for the past few months.
As soon as he stepped into the cave house, a green shadow flashed in the stone chamber, and a boy in green clothes rushed toward Liu Ming very quickly.
“Master…” Fei’er wrapped Liu Ming’s arms with a pair of tender white hands and shouted in a sweet and childish voice.
“Fei’er, you’re finally awake?” Liu Ming’s face was overjoyed. He launched a black gas to carry Fei’er, then his face changed slightly.
Fei’er had more spiritual power than before, but he was still at the level of the Crystallization Period later stage. He still didn’t advance to the Pseudo Pellet State as expected.
“I woke up a month ago, but neither master nor Xie’er is here. Fei’er is so boring in the cave!” Fei’er twisted and broke free from the black gas, then he held on Liu Ming’s shirt and complained.
“It seems that the bottleneck of the Pseudo Pellet State period is not so easy to break through. Let’s continue to look for opportunities in the future.” Liu Ming rubbed the top of Fei’er’s head and sighed in his mind.
“Master, are we still going out for missions?” The boy asked with his head tilted.
“Yes, I still need to accumulate some contribution points.” As Liu Ming said, he walked slowly to the stone table in the center of the living room and sat down.
“Okay, then I want to go with the master. It’s too boring to be here alone.” Fei’er said while jumping to Liu Ming’s side.
Liu Ming nodded with a smile. Now that Fei’er had woken up, he would naturally take him along. Xie’er had already played a role of restraint when he hunted the Thousand Illusion Demon. Now that he had 2 spiritual pets, it would be more convenient.
He patted the soul-recovering bag on his waist with 1 hand, and the boy turned into a black light and flew into it.
Next, he got up and walked into the secret room. After sitting cross-legged on the futon in the middle, he took out Zuo Gongquan’s storage item.
He had already looked at Thousand Illusion Demon’s thumb ring, but he hadn’t checked Zuo Gongquan’s in detail.
Zuo Gongquan was also a sect master, so his networth should be quite rich.
Liu Ming thought so as he released Divine Thought into Zuo Gongquan’s storage bracelet, and he was immediately happy.
He waved his hand, and a lot of things appeared on the floor.
“Poria flower, white lotus grass, bright silver dendrobium, siderolite, amber crystal jade…” Among the piles of things, most of them were spiritual grasses and ores. All of which were very precious spiritual materials.
Liu Ming was not short of spirit stones, which was good for him to get so many rare materials. Especially, there were several auxiliary materials for refining jingang bone tempering pills among the items, so there was no need to go to the market anymore.
He immediately took out Thousand Illusion Demon’s storage thumb ring and withdrew the items inside.
Most of the elixirs, ores, and spiritual weapons that Thousand Illusion Demon carried were for demonic cultivation, which were useless to Liu Ming, so most of them had to be sold in the market.
After he sorted these things into categories, he let out a long breath, fell on the bed and fell asleep.
The next day, Liu Ming woke up refreshed.
Without delay, he left the cave house early and flew toward Xuan Hall.
The outer hall of Xuan Hall was still very lively in the sect. There were densely packed outer disciples, staring at the xuan notice. Every time a mission appears on the list, it will cause a buzzing discussion. Sometimes, it was not unusual to cause an argument for a mission.
Liu Ming felt a little emotional after seeing this scene.
However, his inner disciple costume was too dazzling, so he didn’t look at it much. He stepped into a teleportation array in the side hall, and he covered his face with a layer of black gas.
The inner hall was much quieter than the outer hall. There were only a dozen or so inner disciples in different costumes. All of them looked up at the missions on the list, but no one spoke.
Liu Ming silently mixed in the crowd and read the missions on the xuan notice.
The remaining hundreds of thousands of contribution points, he intended to accumulate at the fastest speed, so as to enter the Evil Ghost Way as soon as possible. After all, the remaining time was limited.
Liu Ming glanced back and forth at the high contribution points missions. Speaking of which, he didn’t come to Xuan Hall many times, but he was no stranger to the inner hall.
With the improvement of his cultivation, missions like hunting beastkins or finding spiritual materials had almost no risk to him, but the contribution points given by these missions were only a few hundred points or thousands of contribution points only. The journey back and forth was not short either, so he immediately ignored them.
In addition, some missions with a high risk index, such as going to some dangerous places to search for treasures or looking for some kind of Real Pellet State-level treasured beastkin materials, the rewards were quite satisfactory.
Liu Ming couldn’t help but look at the first mission on the list, which was to find the cub of a nine-headed yuan lion. The reward for the contribution points given was nearly one million, and there was a line of small words behind saying that providing relevant clues could also get 100,000 contribution points.
Liu Ming once saw this mission when he came here before, and the person who posted it was an anonymous grand elder.
However, this mission was basically impossible.
Liu Ming had seen in the classics that the nine-headed yuan lion was the descendant of the ancient dragon family according to rumors. The dragon blood flowing on its body was no inferior than the scaled dragon, land dragon and other high rank beastkins.
After the nine-headed yuan lion turned into an adult, its cultivation base was comparable to that of the Celestial State cultivator. This kind of beastkin had not appeared on the Middle Sky Continent for thousands of years. Some people even speculated that the nine-headed yuan lions were extinct as early as ancient times. Looking for its cubs was naturally extremely illusory.
Liu Ming naturally wouldn’t waste time on this kind of mission, but he did come for some more dangerous missions this time.
After watching it for a while, Liu Ming took the token from his waist and launched a symbol at the xuan notice. Suddenly, a crystal light shot down from somewhere on the xuan notice and landed on the token.
He waved his arms again, and 2 more crystal lights flashed down.
Such a move immediately attracted the attention of everyone in the inner hall.
Liu Ming put away the token calmly and walked out on his own under everyone’s gaze.
“Who is this person? He actually took 3 missions together?”
“Looking at his clothes, he seems to be a disciple of the Fallen Serene Peak.”
“Eh, that person took all the missions with high contribution points!” Someone soon noticed the missing missions on the inner notice, and he was shocked.
3 of the 3 missing missions was to kill a Real Pellet State beastkin and get its fresh beastkin core. Each core will reward 15,000 contribution points.
The surrounding inner disciple suddenly burst into commotion. These missions couldn’t be accomplished easily. Most of the time, it could only be barely accomplished when a few people were fully prepared. Taking a few missions like this would usually lose more than gain.
“Who is this person? Fallen Serene Peak has such a powerful inner disciple? Could it be that he is the Liu Ming from the rumors?” A man wearing a demon mask muttered to himself and said in surprise.
Liu Ming’s name was now famous in the Taiqing Sect. Especially after the news spread that he had advanced to the Pseudo Pellet State period, no one basically didn’t recognize him.
Recently, there were rumors that Liu Ming disappeared in the past few years to behead numerous Real Pellet State evil cultivators one after another.
Liu Ming now had the momentum of being the first disciple of the inner door.
Liu Ming was naturally unaware of the commotion in the inner hall. At this moment, he had already left Thousands Spirit Mountain Range using the Daiyue Jade Boat.
His next 3 missions; 1 was to hunt down Real Pellet State’s beastkin, flame illusory beast, and get its core. Another was to pick 5 sky ghost flowers. The last was to collect 100 high quality sea sunflower beads.
These 3 were difficult missions that had been ignored for a long time on the inner notice.
Flame illusory beast was a mutated high rank beastkin that lived only in volcanic magma. It was born with the innate ability to control the fire attribute aura. Once becoming an adult, its cultivation could reach the Real Pellet State early stage. Its strength was extremely powerful. Under the blessing of the endless fire element in volcanic lava, the strength of this beastkin could be more than doubled. Therefore, if one wanted to kill a flame illusory beast of the Real Pellet State early stage, he must have the strength of the Real Pellet State intermediate stage or above.
Picking sky ghost flowers was also a tricky mission.
In the entire Middle Sky Continent, the sky ghost flower was only found in the Yin Corpse Mountain Range in the southeast of the mainland where there was no sun all year round. It was rumored that it was an ancient Shura battlefield. It was the famous perilous place in the Middle Sky Continent. Even if a Real Pellet State cultivator entered it, its cultivation would also be affected by the yin qi. He would even lose his mind and turn into a malicious ghost if his mind was slightly weaker.
As for the sea sunflower beads, it was a kind of sunflower bead that was bred in the body of the sunflower jellyfish. The sunflower jellyfish was shaped like a blooming sunflower and lived in the coral sea at the bottom of the deep sea in the South Sea Region all year round.
This beastkin didn’t have high cultivation. It was only at the Condensation Period intermediate stage to Crystallization Period early stage after becoming an adult, but it could blend into the surrounding environment, making it extremely difficult to find its traces. When it was life-threatened, it would spray venom and lightning. It was an extremely difficult mutated jellyfish beastkin.
Since only adult sunflower jellyfish could breed high quality sunflower beads, it was extremely difficult to collect 100 beads.
However, even though these missions were dangerous, Liu Ming thought that the problem was not a big deal. The main reason he accepted these missions were because they had stated specific areas, which saved him the time to search again.
