“Junior who knows how to control the array, come and help out.” Jin Tianci raised his voice.
Immediately, 4 more figures flew out of the crowd. They were Wen Zeng, Long Yanfei, Ouyang Qian, and Liu Ming.
The 4 took the disk array. After a while, the other 4 array lights spread out, making the valley’s defense more solid and stable.
For a time, the bloody lights launched by the bloodthirsty bats shattered into bloody rain when hitting the sturdy light curtain.
Seeing this, everyone present finally breathed a sigh of relief.
However, as more and more bats approached, the entire sky above the light curtain was almost covered by the bats and the scary bloody eyes.
“It seems that we are out of danger for the time being, but this is not a long-term solution!” Qiu Longzi said in a deep voice when he saw this.
“These enchantments can only hold for a while. With so many bat beastkins have surrounded the entire valley, it is only a matter of time before they can be defeated.” Jin Tianci nodded in agreement.
“If that’s the case, why don’t we…”
“Be careful, there are bat beastkins of the Crystallization Period.”
Qiu Longzi’s eyes flashed. When he was about to say something, he was suddenly interrupted by Liu Ming.
Everyone looked up in shock.
Outside the enchantment, a bat that was significantly larger than the others rushed out of the bat group. The giant bat wing had a layer of blood-red light, and the fangs protruded out of the mouth. The beastkin aura it emanated had already reached the Crystallization Period level.
The giant bat let out a screech and spouted a thick bloody light beam at the Thick Earth Array.
Seeing this, Jin Tianci frowned. He launched a symbol, and a brown spiral mist appeared on top of the Thick Earth Array, resisting the bloody light beam.
“There’s another Crystallization Period bat here!”
“There… there’s 1 here too!”
For a time, the bat beastkins of the Crystallization Period emerged one by one, frantically launching bloody light beams at the array.
Jin Tianci quickly launched symbols with a solemn face. The Thick Earth Array was strengthened instantly, blocking all the attacks.
But after just a moment, the light curtain was stained with a lot of red spots. They were devouring the lights of the light curtain, making the array increasingly dim.
The bloody light beam launched by these Crystallization Period bat beastkins obviously had a corrosive effect, which made everyone shudder.
“It seems that we really have to get out of this besiege immediately!” Jin Tianci said solemnly after taking a deep breath.
When the people around him heard the words, they looked at each other in dismay. In fact, everyone knew very well that breaking through was the only way. However, facing these thousands of Condensation Period beastkins and a few Crystallization Period beastkins, it would be the same as seeking death to leave the valley rashly.
“Oh no, there is even a bat beastkin of the Real Pellet State!”
Liu Ming was manipulating the green array in his hands, but most of his thoughts were still on the bat beastkins outside. Suddenly, he looked in a certain direction as he said in a deep voice.
Everyone was shocked when they heard this. They looked in the same direction, but they found nothing unusual except the bat beastkins.
When most people were in doubt, there was a clear and loud hissing sound from outside the valley. A black-red beastkin wind suddenly swept over from the direction Liu Ming was looking at. The speed was astonishing!
The Condensation Period bat beastkins in the surrounding were pushed away like fallen leaves by the beastkin wind, and they made bursts of harsh screams.
At this moment, the black-red beastkin wind suddenly restrained, and a giant creature appeared in front of everyone’s eyes.
After everyone took a closer look, they couldn’t help but take a deep breath.
When this bat beastkin spread its wings, its entire body was 60 meters long, which covered almost a portion of the sky. The bloody mouth was filled with sharp teeth. On the pair of the claws, there were a dozen meters long nails that looked like 10 black greatswords.
The surging beastkin aura had obviously reached the Real Pellet State early stage. The 2 lantern-like pupils swept across the crowd in the array, making those Crystallization Period disciples tremble in fear.
Before waiting for any action from the people in the valley, the giant bat swiftly launched a bloody light ball at the light curtain.
With a loud bang, the bloody light ball burst open over the valley, and countless air waves rolled out wildly.
The already dim yellow light curtain had many cracks like it was about to collapse.
At the same time, the disk array in Jin Tianci’s hand suddenly made a crisp cracking sound. After the yellow light on it flashed, it dimmed in the blink of an eye.
Long Yanfei and several other disciples who were also in control of the disk arrays were all shocked by this. They hurriedly spurted out a stream of pure aura at the disk array in their hands and poured spiritual power into it.
The next moment, the surface of the yellow light curtain was immediately intertwined with colorful lights, instantly repairing the light curtain.
At this time, the Real Pellet State bat beastkin did not continue to attack, but it flew above all the other bat beastkins and made screeches of different tones.
Immediately, the other demon bats were in a commotion, and they began to circle and dance in line.
“This Real Pellet State bat beastkin is not low in intelligence. Under its command, other bat beastkins may be able to exert greater power. If there are a few more Real Pellet State bat beastkins, I’m afraid we really won’t be able to leave!” Jin Tianci looked at the disk array in his hand and said with a little thought.
“But there are too many bats outside. If we push hard, you and I will be fine, but I’m afraid that other junior fellow apprentices…” Qiu Longzi said in a low voice with a flash of light in his eyes.
“Don’t worry. I have a thing called alluring spiritual fluids. This thing has a great temptation for beastkin, especially for this kind of bloodthirsty beastkin. If someone can rush out with this alluring spiritual fluid, he should be able to lead most of these bats away. Then, the rest will be able to escape from this valley safely.” Jin Tianci said with a flash of eyes.
“Alluring spiritual fluids…”
Liu Ming’s eyes flashed when he heard this.
He had seen relevant records in the books of the Scriptures Pavilion, which was a kind of spiritual fluid with a special fragrance. It was refined by beastkin alluring incense, red catfish and some rare medicinal materials.
Both the beastkin alluring incense and the red catfish had a great attraction for the beastkin. They could easily attract beastkin below the Condensation State, but the effect on the beastkin above the Crystallization Period would be greatly reduced. It was almost ineffective for Real Pellet State beastkin, so many low and middle tier cultivators who lived by hunting beastkin would always prepare some to lure beastkins out of the nest to facilitate hunting.
After the alluring spiritual fluid was refined, it was even better than the beastkin alluring incense. Not only could it attract the Crystallization Period beastkin, but it also had a certain attraction to the Real Pellet State beastkins. However, due to the difficulty of refining it, only some top alchemy masters were able to refine such special spiritual fluid. Thus, it was rare and priceless.
“Brother Jin, this method may be effective, but you and I have to stay and control the array. In this way, the person who leads the beastkins away will have to risk his life.” When Qiu Longzi heard the name of alluring spiritual fluid, he looked at ease a little, but then he said again.
“There will definitely be some risk, but when this junior leaves, I will first cast a spell to help him break through a path, so that the risk will be minimized. The junior responsible for diverting the bats away can get half of the spirit gathering stone after this crisis is over. Does anyone have any opinions?” Jin Tianci said confidently.
As he spoke, he waved his sleeve, and a golden glow suddenly flew out and covered the spirit gathering array under his feet.
Puff puff puff!
In a series of popping sounds, the spirit gathering stones in the array were rolled up by the golden lights and were piled up by the side. The aura was really astounding.
At the same time, the huge spirit vortex above the valley quickly dissipated as the spirit gathering stones were taken out, and the rich spirit in the valley also escaped.
After listening to what Jin Tianci said, everyone looked at the pile of spirit gathering stones on the ground, but no one objected to it.
Many of them looked at the spirit gathering stone on the ground with a hint of greed in their eyes.
Although they had only cultivated in the spirit gathering array for half a day, they had all experienced the speed of cultivating in it.
There were more than a thousand pieces of this pile of spirit gathering stones, and half of them were more than 500 pieces. Even if most of them were to be turned over to the sect later, the remaining amount was enough to lay down several small spirit gathering arrays. If such spirit gathering stones were sold, it was naturally an unimaginable astronomical sum of spirit stones.
However, these people were discouraged by the bats all over the sky.
Luo Tiancheng was also greatly moved when looking at the spirit gathering stones on the ground.
TL: Will Luo Tiancheng lead the bats away? Even though he has the dutian spiritual body, he doesn’t seem proficient in escape techniques…
