In a surprise, he appeared beside the corpse and examined it carefully.
Judging from the dress of this corpse, he was undoubtedly a Nature Work Sect’s disciple. From his wound, it was obvious that he was torn apart forcibly by a brute force, but the neat wound surprised Liu Ming.
At this moment, Liu Ming saw the purple storage bracelet on the corpse’s wrist.
He frowned and took the storage bracelet into his hand.
When he checked with Divine Thought, except for some spirit stones, talismans and spiritual weapons, there were still a dozen round balls of different colors. Most of them were fist-sized. The only golden ball among them had dense runes on its surface. It was clearly larger than the other balls.
“Eh? Is this a Real Pellet State puppet?” Liu Ming looked at the golden ball a few times, then he suddenly showed a surprised expression, but then he shook his head with a wry smile again.
Nature Work Sect disciples who could enter the ruins were naturally not ordinary characters, so it was not too strange for them to possess such a puppet.
Speaking of which, he had only sacrificially refined the four guardian puppet warriors of the Condensation State before. He had never controlled the puppet of the Crystallization Period, let alone the Real Pellet State puppet.
The high rank puppet exclusive to this sect could naturally not be controlled with ordinary puppet techniques.
If he knew this, he would have asked Qing Ling for a few books on puppet techniques when he was in the Odd Desert that day.
Next, he checked the corpses of several other puppets, and he found that they were all Crystallization Period-level puppets. It seemed that the Nature Work Sect disciple was suddenly attacked, and he was killed before he could use the Real Pellet State puppet.
Liu Ming put away the storage bracelet and wandered around for a while, but after finding no other traces, he could only leave the swamp.
In the next few days, Liu Ming rushed to the nearest marked place on the map, and he had a good harvest along the way.
Among them were a few spiritual herbs. If they were filled into the sword pouch, it would help the nourishment of Sword Maru. In addition, there were several pieces of high-grade yin ore, which were also the best forging materials for yin attribute weapons. Each of them was invaluable.
What made Liu Ming most happy was that he also got a rare thousand year old soul chasing grass. If it was paired with a spiritual item called colorful coral, he could concoct a kind of spiritual medicine that could slightly increase the chance of forming a real pellet.
At this level, even if it only increased the chance of forming the real pellet by 1% or 2%, it would make countless Pseudo Pellet State cultivators scramble for it.
7 days later, Liu Ming circled above a mountain that was surrounded by a dense forest and scanned a radius of a hundred miles with Divine Thought. Then, he slowly landed and walked to a seemingly normal boulder. After taking a few glances, he launched a symbol into it.
“Pop“, all the scenery near the boulder shattered like a bubble, revealing a huge mountain wall full of black and green moss.
Below the mountain wall, a seemingly very ancient bronze door had opened wide.
Seeing this, Liu Ming entered it with a flicker.
After 15 minutes, Liu Ming appeared in an empty hall on the belly of the mountain. Some stone tables and chairs collapsed on the ground. It looked like this place had been looted.
Liu Ming frowned slightly. After looking around, he took out a green bead and patted it with 1 hand.
The bead emitted a faint green light along with a low humming sound.
A white light shot out from a thick pillar nearby and landed in his hand. It was a white talisman.
Liu Ming launched a symbol. The white rune condensed in the air and turned into a line of small white characters, then they dissipated in the air.
“They’ve already been here, but fortunately they left a note about the next place they are going. It’s not difficult to catch up with them.” Liu Ming murmured, put the bead away and left immediately.
Half a month later, at a low altitude in a long and narrow canyon, 4 figures dashed past.
More than 300 meters away, a colorful escape light was chasing after them.
The leader was an imposing golden escape light. In the golden light was a young man with a golden robe. This man was Jin Tianci.
Among the other escape lights in the back, there were Ouyang Sisters, Long Yanfei and 2 other disciples.
It turned out that just a few days ago, after Jin Tianci and Qiu Longzi had just searched a ruin marked on the map, in order to improve the efficiency of the treasure hunt, they each led a team to hunt for treasures in this area.
Jin Tianci led Long Yanfei and others to discover a huge valley with a lot of spiritual herbs. When they scattered to collect, 2 of the disciples were suddenly attacked by 4 Demon Mystic Sect’s disciples.
Outnumbered by the enemy and without the slightest precaution, even though the 2 Taiqing Sect’s disciples were not weak, 1 was still killed on the spot. The other relied on the life-saving talisman to barely escape. He quickly found Jin Tianci on the other side of the valley to report the news.
Such a sneak attack naturally made Jin Tianci furious. He immediately summoned Long Yanfei and others to pursue.
As a result, not far from the valley, they saw several Demon Mystic Sect’s disciples and immediately chased after them.
Looking at the few Demon Mystic Sect’s disciples fleeing in front, he chanted and changed gestures. Dazzling starlights were emitted around him.
He launched a golden light from both sides of his hands.
After the 2 golden lights condensed in the air, they turned into 2 golden rainbows and flashed into the mountain peaks on both sides of the valley.
A golden line suddenly appeared on the surface of the mountain peaks on both sides of the valley. They quickly spread forward, surpassing the black figures ahead in an instant.
A rumbling sound came!
The areas above the golden line on both sides collapsed suddenly. Pieces of rubble rolled down and blocked the originally narrow valley.
The next moment, the golden escape light suddenly turned into a dazzling meteor that caught up with the black figures.
Seeing this, several black figures suddenly paused and turned around. After the demonic qi was retrieved, several men in Demon Mystic Sect costumes were revealed. There was a young man with green hair among them. It was Long Xuan.
Jin Tianci let out a low shout. The countless starlights condensed into an acre-sized golden palm and slapped at them.
“Four Evil Link”
Seeing this, the other 3 people appeared behind Long Xuan with a blur, and they put their 6 hands on Long Xuan’s shoulders.
Long Xuan grinned. Green flames rolled out and formed a 60 meters tall green giant phantasm. Its facial features were blurred, but it wore an armor and held various kinds of spiritual weapons with 6 arms.
Long Xuan himself was doubled in size, turning into a green giant with a height of more than 6 meters. Thick green spirit patterns were visible on his body. He raised his giant finger and pointed at the giant golden palm.
“Hoo“, the 6 arms waved simultaneously. The different weapons turned into a 30 meters long green blade phantasm that slashed at the giant golden palm.
An earth-shattering noise!
The giant green blade shattered inch by inch in the dazzling golden light. Long Xuan and the others staggered back a few steps with pale faces.
However, the giant golden palm also collapsed in a flash.
Seeing this situation, Jin Tianci was a little surprised, but he was about to make another attack.
But at this moment, in the direction behind him, several terrifying auras that made him terrified suddenly rose into the sky, followed by a piercing whistling sound.
Jin Tianci was startled. He hurriedly turned around to look in shock.
From both sides of the mountain wall, 7 black light beams were launched at Long Yanfei and the others.
2 of the Taiqing Sect disciples were hit by 3 light beams and got annihilated on the spot along with several protective spiritual weapons.
On the other hand, a sword intent emerged from Long Yanfei and soared into the sky, clearing 2 black light beams.
On the side of Ouyang Sisters, they both crushed a silver talisman. A giant emperor phantasm blocked before them and perished together with the other 2 black light beams.
But even so, both Long Yanfei and Ouyang Qian’s sisters’ faces all turned bloodless.
Almost at the same time, a strange laughter came out from the 2 sides of the mountain wall where the black light beams were launched. Then, 7 men in a gray robe who had similar looks appeared from a long space fissure.
As the 7 men appeared, they put their hands together and launched 7 lack light beams again. The speed was so fast that it was impossible to dodge.
Seeing this, Long Yanfei spouted a small white sword from her mouth. It flashed and turned into a 30 meters long white light that protected the 3 of them.
Ouyang Qian and Quyang Qin also held each other hand while raising another hand, each holding a red and blue cloth. A layer of red light curtain and blue light curtain were condensed behind the white light.
4 loud impacts sounded.
The 4 light beams hit the white light and the 2 light curtains successively, and they all collapsed together. The remaining 3 light beams were about to hit the 3 of them.
Long Yanfei and Ouyang Sister were horrified by this!
