Strongest Sect of All Times - c183 - dangerous death valley
No one expected Lu Qianqian to be an ice-type martial cultivator.
No one expected that with her Frost Spikes, the fifth-stage Big Ape actually died just like that!
The blood dripped onto the ice, splashing to the ground.
The 30 or so rogue cultivators firmly believed that this was not a dream, this was reality!
That female Ironbone Sect disciples had used one ice-type move to kill the Big Ape!
At that moment.
They fully understood why the Ironbone Sect could massacre the Scarlet Flame Wolves.
For just this fairy-looking female disciple, several hundred wolves would still be unable to kill her!
In fact, during the Scarlet Flame Wolf attack, Lu Qianqian had not acted at all and not a drop of blood had touched her clothes. Only Li Qingyang and the others had moved.
Ling Yuanxue was filled with praise. “Senior Sister is so awesome!”
Ye Xingchen muttered, “This woman cannot be underestimated.”
Li Qingyang and the others weren’t surprised at all.
Worthy of being the Ironbone Unyielding Sect’s first disciple, there is no need to explain her strength!
With her icy energy, she had used an ice-class martial skill and directly off-ed a fifth-stage Martial Master level Big Ape.
Lu Qianqian’s valiant display shocked not only the rogue cultivators, but also many of her junior brothers!
Jun Changxiao was very calm.
Although he had been surprised that his eldest disciples was an ice-type cultivator, he wasn’t surprised she was able to kill a fifth-stage savage beast, since she had been silently hiding her strength this whole time.
[Ding! Hunt and kill a Big Ape 1/10.]
Jun Changxiao said, “Zuiji, take the crystal core, skin, and bones.”
Xiao Zuiji was efficient, leaving behind only a pile of meat.
Jun Changxiao led the disciples off while the rogue cultivators hurried over to divide the meat.
A fifth-stage savage beast’s meat was a high-end good, something rich people liked to eat, so 1 jin would sell for 10 taels no problem!
It wasn’t that Jun Changxiao didn’t want the meat, but that his storage ring was limited.
Given his storage ring from the system, he could probably fit 3 or 4 apes at most.
The disciples’ storage rings were lower level, so their capacity was even smaller.
Xiao Zuiji had only picked up the fur and bones of the Big Ape and Mountain-Carrying Bear, but his ring was basically full.
And this trip had only just begun.
There were surely more powerful savage beasts deeper inside. There was definitely no reason to store the less valuable meat inside.
The 30 or so rogue cultivators were quite happy though.
Since the Big Ape was at least 2000 jin, using 10 taels per catty, each person’s 50 jin or so made them 500 taels!
If there were more large savage beasts as they followed the Ironbone Sect, wouldn’t they quickly make back their 2000 taels?
Looking at the cultivators dividing up the meat, Jun Changxiao shook his head. If I had known, I would have prepared dozens of storage rings and taken all of the meat. Even if we can’t sell it all, Dudu can make us some good food.”
The system asked, [You think ape meat tastes good?]
“No,” Juns Changxiao said.
The system responded, [Then don’t think about it.]
Jun Changxiao led the disciples on. Once they neared a small pond, he had them rest and clean up their bloodstains.
Xiao Zuiji stood on a nearby tree, Type 88 in hand as he vigilantly kept watch.
The group washed off the remains from their massacre, sitting cross-legged to absorb spirit power and replenish their energy.
The rogue cultivators settled a few meters away. They did not dare wander too far, worried that there would be an attack by savage beasts.
One cultivator rested by a tree and felt something drip onto his head. He instinctively lifted a hand to touch it, whatever it was sticky to the touch.
His complexion changed and he quickly looked up.
A deep green python opened its large mouth and directly rushed at him.
A scream broke the relative silence.
“A Blue-Eyed Snake!”
“Huo Bao was eaten!”
“Everyone, kill it together!”
Although the 30 or so cultivators panicked, they were not disorganized.
Each of them grabbed their weapons, charging at this Blue-Eyed Snake hanging on the tree.
There were several Second Stage Martial Masters in this group, so the overall strength wasn’t too bad. With everyone’s strength, the third-stage snake beast lost its head.
Unfortunately, when they opened the snake’s stomach, the man called Huo Bao’s body looked almost rotten, having lost all breath of life.
The people let out a deep sigh.
Since they entered Death Valley, they could be attacked by savage beasts at any moment, so death was quite common.
Ling Yuanxue saw the corpse from afar, hurriedly shutting her eyes.
“Listen to me.”
Jun Changxiao solemnly said, “This is Death Valley. There will always be danger. You are to stay vigilant and protect yourself.”
He did not care much about the life and death of the rogue cultivators, since they were neither friends nor kin.
The disciples nodded.
Li Qingyang’s Cold Edge Sword flashed with light, slicing an earth-colored scorpion right by Ling Yuanxue’s feet.
“That scared me to death!” Ling Yuanxue was startled.
The crowd felt their mouths twitching.
This junior sister… Although she is a little cowardly, a moment ago, she actually smashed an Earthly Flame Wolf to pulp. A little complicated!
Not only was Death Valley filled with powerful savage beasts, it was overrun with centipedes, scorpions and other small poisonous beasts.
Of those who entered, about 40% were killed by poison.
This was Death Valley, a truly fearful place: one had to be on guard against powerful savage beasts while also protecting oneself from very small savage beasts.
After just walking to one spot, Su Xiaomo sat on a mossy stone and earned a small ant bite on the back of his hand.
Because it was venomous, it swelled up immediately.
“Fuck! What type of ant is this that the bite hurts so much?”
After pinching the ant to death, Su Xiaomo crushed the Detoxification Pill over the wound and the aching immediately went down.
For Jun Changxiao’s trip this time, Li Luoqiu had purchased many necessities for roaming cultivators.
For example, the most commonly used ordinary Detoxification Pill.
So long as it wasn’t violently poisonous, crushing the pill over any wound would solve the problem.
Jun Changxiao thought, Does the Healing Pill have detoxifying functions?
[No], the system said.
Jun Changxiao knew that would be the answer.
If there was a detoxifying function, then Xiao Zuiji’s spirit root toxins would have been solved much faster.
Li Qingyang said, “There are two tunnels in front and should lead to two different places. Which one should we take?”
Death Valley’s terrain was quite complex, tunnels and corridors running around like a bottle gourd’s vine.
The region that Jun Changxiao and them stood was at the mouth of a gourd, the two tunnels leading separate directions.
“Look for spiders.”
“Sect Head, spiders are everywhere here.”
“Look for Small Venomous Spiders.”
They couldn’t just wander around Death Valley, they had to seek their goal.
Since the epic mission asked for 500 Small Venomous Spiders, Jun Changxiao would definitely look for them first.
Li Qingyang said, “These spiders form clusters. If we find one, we’ll find a colony!”
“We still have to look.”
Jun Changxiao led the disciples onwards, before stopping where the mountainous forest area met a stone tunnel.
As for the stone tunnels, one had wind coming from it, while the other did not.
“Spiders fear the light, often staying in cavernous areas.” After thinking for a moment, he pointed at the tunnel with wind, “Enter this one.”
“Sect Head Jun.”
Just as they were about to leave, one of the rogue cultivators said, “The place you’re entering has a venomous spider lair. There’s hundreds of spiders inside!”
Jun Changxiao smiled, “So it seems that this Lord definitely must go inside.”
Saying that, he led the disciples inside.
The rogue cultivators felt their mouths twitching.
The only thing valuable about venomous spiders were the spider webs; the body itself was not valuable at all.
Why did the Ironbone Sect go inside? Did they not fear poking the hornet’s nest and ending up being over-numbered by tens of thousands of spiders?
