Listening to what Ye Jiong said, no matter how, it was dangerous to enter the giant beast’s body to find the cauldron.
“Everyone doesn’t have to worry. Even though this beast is sturdy on the outside, its internal body obviously won’t be the same. As long as you can find the cauldron in time and launch an attack inside the giant beast’s body, I don’t believe it won’t open its mouth again because of extreme pain.” Wen Zeng, who had been silent for a while, said in a cold voice.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Wen is right. Besides that, I’m afraid there is no other better way.” Jin Tianci thought for a moment and said slowly.
Although this action required taking some risks, everyone understood that nothing ventured, nothing gained.
“To tell you the truth, since our sect let us bring those 2 mechanical battle armors into the ruins, they have actually considered this method as one of the final choices. Since you think it will work, then let’s use this strategy.” After discussing with the other fellow disciples, Ye Jiong said so.
“Very good, then we will divide the labor and cooperate. Your fellows will contain this beast with the five-element puppets, Mr. Ye, Junior Fellow Apprentice Wen and I will be responsible for attacking this beast and attracting its attention. Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu and Junior Fellow Apprentice Luo, you 2 will enter this beast and look for the cauldron.”
Jin Tianci quickly came up with a complete plan and told everyone.
After Liu Ming thought about it for a while, he nodded, and Luo Tiancheng was even more eager to try. He agreed without hesitation.
The other Nature Work Sect disciples had no opinion since they didn’t have to go into the huge beast’s body.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Jin, I’m proficient in curse technique, which can exert more power inside this beast. I can also look for the cauldron inside this beast.” Wen Zeng raised his eyebrows, showing a little dissatisfaction.
“Junior Fellow Apprentice Wen. Your curse is very powerful, so we need you to contain this beast from the outside. As for Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu and Junior Fellow Apprentice Luo both have tyrannical bodies, so they are more appropriate to enter its body.” Jin Tianci said lightly.
After hearing that, Wen Zeng glanced at Liu Ming and Luo Tiancheng and said nothing.
In the following time, they discussed the specific plans. Under Ye Jiong’s guidance, they flew all the way to the east for 2 days. After crossing a large stretch of snow-capped mountains, they came to an endless forest beside.
Afterward, everyone stopped over a mountain dozens of miles away from the forest.
At a glance, the forest was brown in color. No matter how they looked, the tree trunks were all barren. There were some strange yellow leaves on them. On the southeast of the forest, there was a gray-brown hill that was dozens of acres.
The entire hill was irregular in shape. On top of the hill was bumpy and uneven. Raised stone pillars were neatly arranged at the ridge. There was a layer of gray mist around this hill, adding a hint of mystery to this place.
Liu Ming’s eyes had already been locked on the hill. Although the gray mist above did not emit spiritual power fluctuations, it gave him an unfathomable strange feeling.
“That thing should be the savage giant beast that Mr. Ye mentioned right?” A layer of white starlight appeared in Jin Tianci’s eyes, and he set his gaze on the hill. He asked suddenly.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Jin really has bright eyes. According to the description recorded in our sect, it is undoubtedly this beast. But it seems that this beast is sleeping now. Next, we must hide our aura as much as possible while we approach. This beast is extremely sensitive to spiritual power fluctuations. A slight movement may wake it up.” Ye Jiong said solemnly after staring at the mountain for a while.
Luo Tiancheng and Wen Zeng were surprised when they heard the words, and they looked at the “hill” carefully.
After everyone observed for a while, Ye Jiong spoke again,
“Everything is going according to the previous plan, but there is one more thing to pay attention to. Since the news about this treasure has been leaked, it is very likely that people from other forces have also come here, especially the people of Beastkin Clan. We should be careful.”
When everyone heard the words, they nodded.
“These are the full-body mechanical battle armors. You only need to inject spiritual power into them, but it is recommended that Brother Liu and Senior Fellow Apprentice Luo wear them here to get used to it first. These two beads are for tracking. You can accurately sense the specific location of this cauldron within 300 meters.” Ye Jiong handed over 2 black metal cylinders and 2 golden beads to Liu Ming and Luo Tiancheng respectively and explained to them. After that, he brought the other 6 Nature Work Sect disciples to the pile of rocks beside to discuss about the five-element array.
Liu Ming held the black metal cylinder with one hand to weigh it. He felt that it was a little heavy.
This mechanical battle armor was no less than the weight of a single Heavy Water Droplet. A cultivator who was not physically strong enough couldn’t even walk without using spiritual power.
Thinking so, he raised his head and glanced at Luo Tiancheng. He was also interested in this Nature Work Sect’s armor as he researched it over and over again.
Jin Tianci glanced at Ye Jiong who had walked into the rock piles, then he stuck 8 small yellow formation flags to form a square formation.
Then he chanted and launched several white rays into the flags, making them disappear in a flash.
The next moment, a faint white array emerged, shrouding the 4 of them in it.
“This is a spirit restraint array. As long as it is within the range of this array, all spiritual power fluctuations will not be transmitted to the outside. Junior Fellow Apprentice Liu and Junior Fellow Apprentice Luo should familiarize yourselves with the mechanical battle armor here. Don’t worry about waking up the huge beast.” Jin Tianci said.
Liu Ming and Luo Tiancheng naturally thanked him.
“There are only the four of us here, so I’ll say it straight. When taking the treasure, you 2 must be careful. Although the Nature Work Sect said that the beast has low intelligence and sturdy skin, this beast has at least survived for tens of thousands of years. No one knows what it is capable of. It will be good if you can find the opportunity to enter its body. If you really can’t do it, don’t force yourselves. Put your life before everything.” Jin Tianci instructed solemnly.
“Thank you for reminding Senior Fellow Apprentice Jin!” Luo Tiancheng immediately clasped his fists.
“Understood!” Liu Ming also nodded.
“Also, you 2 take more risk in getting the cauldron. If you really got the Spirit Nurture Cauldron, you 2 can get 30% of the rewards given by the Nature Work Sect. Junior Fellow Apprentice Wen and I will get 20%.” Jin Tianci said after thinking about it.
Liu Ming and Luo Tiancheng looked at each other and nodded, Wen Zeng on the side seemed to be a bit reluctant, but seeing that the other 3 agreed, he didn’t say much.
“Okay, you 2 should get used to the armor here, Junior Fellow Apprentice Wen, you and I will investigate the surrounding situation to see if there are other forces hiding nearby.” After instructing Liu Ming and Luo Tiancheng, Jin Tianci and Wen Zeng flew out of the spirit restraint array.
As soon as they left, Luo Tiancheng glanced coldly at Liu Minghu, then he walked to the other side and sat down.
Liu Ming smiled slightly. He studied the mechanical battle armor in his hands on his own.
At the same time, not far away from the rubble piles, Ye Jiong and several other Nature Work Sect’s disciples were also discussing under a yellow soundproof enchantment, deliberately avoiding the Taiqing Sect’s people.
“Little Master’s Junior, I did what you asked to activate the sensing talisman when coming here. At present, it can be confirmed that within a radius of hundreds of miles around the huge beast, there is no one else except us.” One of the strong and honest-looking disciples respectfully said to Ye Jiong.
“That’s good!” Ye Jiong was relieved after hearing that.
“Little Master’s Junior, do you think the people sent by the Taiqing Sect can be trusted? After all, once the five-element array is activated, it will cause a lot of movement. If those beastkin cultivators come again, we will face enemies from both sides. I’m afraid we won’t be able to resist…” Another disciple with pointed ears and monkey cheeks said worriedly.
“According to Senior Fellow Apprentice Zhao, Jin Tianci, who led the Taiqing Sect’s disciples, is a man of great history and unfathomable strength. We just need to do our own thing. Just let the rest unfold on its own naturally. In addition, among the 3 disciples he brought, Liu Ming is also extremely powerful. He had already shone in the Tianmen Conference. As for Luo Tiancheng, I have also seen him fighting with my own eyes, although he is only at the intermediate stage of the Crystallization Period, he has the legendary dutian spiritual body. His strength is comparable to the Real Pellet State. So overall, we still have a certain chance in obtaining the treasure this time.” Ye Jiong explained slowly to them.
After several Nature Work Sect’s disciples heard this explanation, most of them felt relieved.
Speaking of which, after these Nature Work Sect’s disciples entered the ruins, they were attacked by the demon and the beastkin cultivators not long afterward. Under heavy casualties, their gain was extremely low. They didn’t even get 1 rare treasure until now. If they could get this Spirit Nurture Cauldron, their trip to the ruins would not be in vain and they would definitely be rewarded by their sect.
On the other side, Liu Ming was sitting cross-legged while studying the black metal cylinder.
The metal cylinder was only about half the size of a fist. Its surface was extremely smooth, and there were faint black crystals inlaid in it.
For the puppet skills of the Nature Work Sect, Liu Ming had a lot of knowledge. From the four guardian puppets to the huge bronze puppet controlled by Peng Yue, and the human form puppet and spiritual puppet controlled by Qing Ling in the Odd Desert, they were all unfathomable.
The production of this mechanical battle armor was similar to these puppets, and it was specially designed by Nature Work Sect, so it wouldn’t be ordinary.
Speaking of which, he was no stranger to mechanical battle armor either. He had already seen it when he was still a Spirit Apostle in the Yunchuan Continent.
After Liu Ming thought for a while, he immediately channeled spiritual power according to the method that Ye Jiong told him and tapped lightly on the metal cylinder.
