Strongest Sect of All Times - c191 - 180% completion
Jun Changxiao spent 100 contribution points, buying the Ninefold Frozen Palms and made 1000 copies of it.
Although he could not cultivate it, since he had bought it, he might as well make copies and prepare for the future.
Looking at the booklet the sect head had handed over, Lu Qianqian was startled, but still held her hand out.
Jun Changxiao turned around and called out, “Find some wood to start a fire. Today we will eat wolf meat!”
Su Xiaomo hurried into action.
Lu Qianqian flipped the booklet open. When she saw that it was a technique created by an ice class Martial Emperor, her eyes were bright with shock.
A martial skill created by a Martial Emperor would definitely not be low in quality.
What shocked her was that the sect head had taken it out so casually!
Without an absolute background, it would be impossible for a sect to have a powerful martial skill. Thus, Lu Qianqian began to believe that the Ironbone Sect did indeed have ancient history.
Ye Xingchen thought Jun Changxiao was from the Upper Realm, she thought the Ironbone Sect had ancient legacy.
The mind was surprisingly good at filling in gaps with bullshit!
This was only natural, since Jun Changxiao had unbelievably handed out high grade martial skills to them.
The flame crackled and a large wolf leg was roasted.
The rogue cultivators also built up some courage, building a small fire in the distance and roasting some of the ape meat they had thrown out earlier.
Many people had entered Death Valley multiple times, but this was definitely the first time they had seen people have a barbecue feast in this place of danger!
After the Ironbone Sect ate, some entered the tents to rest and others were responsible for taking look out.
Zhou Hong did not sleep, immersing himself with comprehending the Ice Sword Divine Art. With the excitement on his face, it would seem he had a good harvest.
Lu Qianqian was also meditating on the Ninefold Frozen Palms, the shock in her heart gaining intensity.
Although this technique could not be compared with the Grand Mysterious Ice Heart Secret Art, but based on the description that it would allow the user to freeze any goal, even the Heavens and earth, it was definitely a divine grade ice class skill!
Lu Qianqian had used ‘Frozen Land’, which was also a freezing skill, but the level was low and could only create ice on the ground.
Compared with the Ninefold Frozen Palms, it could be considered a difference between Heaven and earth!
Sometime in the night, Lu Qianqian let an ant crawl onto her palm and erupted with cold qi, instantly freezing the ant into a little ice sculpture.
Considering that she had only frozen the not even 5 HP ant, it wasn’t very impressive. But this woman had only cultivated it for two hours!
The reason I can understand it so quickly is because I have the Grand Mysterious Ice Heart Body, Lu Qianqian secretly thought.
The Ninefold Frozen Palm was best suited for someone with an ice class physique and would be comprehended faster!
As for how much faster, it would depend on the level of that physique.
The next day.
Jun Changxiao woke up early and said, “Let’s set off!”
Fire Dragon Beast.
You could tell by the name that it was a fire type savage beast.
As long as you felt hot air from one tunnel, you had a good chance of finding it.
Jun Changxiao secretly calculated.
But after searching for a while, there were no passages where hot air could be felt. Instead, they had slaughtered many other high-grade savage beasts.
The process was a little difficult, since as they headed deeper, there were more and more savage beasts stronger than Martial Masters.
But it was alright since nothing was stronger than that Storm Wolf King.
Xiao Zuiji and Li Yuhua walked shoulder to shoulder at the front, the other disciples attacking with the Cold Edge Swords and Tyrant King Spear, smoothly killing beasts one by one.
Following at their heels, the rogue cultivators were dumbfounded.
These Ironbone Sect disciples, only that ice class disciple and that sword disciple gave them an immeasurably strong feeling. But these other Martial Apprentices could actually still hunt Martial Ancestor-level savage beasts!
If they left Death Valley and told others, no one would believe them!
From one passageway, a thick-skinned first stage rhinoceros beast howled in pain, thudding to the ground as its body was littered with wounds.
“Another one dead!”
The rogue cultivators felt the corners of their mouths twitching.
[Ding! The host has hunted a hidden savage beast. Epic mission is at 100% completion, you have obtained 200 contribution points.]
[Sect Contribution: 890/1000.]
Hearing the notifications, Jun Changxiao opened the data panel and discovered that the epic mission wasn’t actually considered completed.
“It seems like it will only be considered complete once I’ve killed the Fire Dragon Beast,” he guessed.
The system said: [Correct.]
Jun Changxiao rubbed his hands together. “If I continue to look for hidden savage beasts to kill, won’t completion go up?”
The system added: [However, the host should pay attention to the time limit.]
“It’s fine, there’s still three days. There should still be time for a few others.”
Thus, Jun Changxiao brought his disciples along. So long as they saw a high-level savage beast, they would definitely kill it, since it might be a hidden quest.
Naturally, they bumped into many beasts during this time.
For example, a jackal pack, a colony of ants, and a wasp hive. Although these were shocking, they were not especially dangerous, other than being a good scare.
[Ding! The host has hunted a hidden savage beast. The epic mission is at 120% completion and you have obtained 200 contribution points.]
[Sect Contribution: 1090/1000]
Having killed another hidden beast, Jun Changxiao bought 4 bottles of Aptitude Transformation Fluid and firmly suppressed his thoughts to gamble in the system store.
Since his previous luck was good and he got two ice-fire martial skills, his luck had definitely run out for the time being.
[Ding! The host has hunted a hidden savage beast. The epic mission is at 140% completion and you have obtained 200 contribution points.]
At the end of the day, Jun Changxiao had killed 4 hidden beasts and completion had reached 180%.
He spent all 800 earned points on Aptitude Transformation Fluid!
Counting the 4 bottles previously bought, Sect Head Jun bought a total of 20 bottles of Aptitude Transformation Fluid — 10 ordinary and 10 mid-grade.
Not only did he gain items from the store, he also found numerous mineral ores and herbs.
Especially in one passageway, he found more than 20 jin of Cold Iron and an entire pond of Ice Spring Water.
Resting for the night, Jun Changxiao spent time refining Cold Edge Swords. By dawn, he had made 20.
Although not every disciple had one, they were fully-armed.
Only based on contribution points and equipment, this experience in Death Valley had only brought about gains!
Jun Changxiao planned to continue seeking savage beasts and hit 200% completion, but he suddenly felt burning energy from one tunnel.
Li Qingyang solemnly concluded, “There’s definitely a powerful fire type savage beast in there!”
Jun Changxiao said, “All of you switch the cores in the Firm Iron Shields to high-level ones.”
The disciples took out peak Martial Master, even First State Martial Ancestor level cores, and put them into the Firm Iron Shields.
With higher level cores, the defensive barriers would definitely be super strong!
Jun Changxiao said, “Go and scout the situation.”
“Let me,” Lu Qianqian said.
As an ice class cultivator, she would be more relaxed going into a burning region.
“That’s fine too,” Jun Changxiao said.
However, before she entered, he added, “Be careful.”
Lu Qianqian did not respond, her whole body filled with ice cold qi and she gracefully vanished from their field of vision.
Li Qingyang and the others quickly set up defensive lines.
Soon, Lu Qianqian walked back and said, “There is a high Fifth Stage Fire Dragon Beast inside.”
Good, very good.
The final mission beast was found!
Not only would killing it complete the mission, it would make completion hit 200%!
Li Qingyang solemnly said, “The Fire Dragon Beast has strong flames, we should go around.”
Xiao Zuiji and the others put their shields down, getting ready to retreat.
Jun Changxiao said: “This Lord wants to see whether this so-called Fire Dragon Beast is truly a dragon or not.”
The people were dumbfounded.
Earlier, when they met a high third stage savage beast, the sect head would choose to go around. But he wanted to face a high fifth stage savage beast?
