The fog within the ravine was much denser than any other place. Even five fingers from one’s stretched out hand wasn’t visible.
Even with their exceptional senses, everyone here could at best sense objects from within a radius of a few tens of meters.
Nothing could be sensed outside of the numerous tens of meters.
Following the ravine, as everyone walked along it, the sky gradually turned dark.
As the fog and night complimented each other, everyone’s senses decreased once again.
This trip of theirs had passed a single night.
On the morning of the next day.
The rays of the sun shone. It was still unable to penetrate the fog, but it instead gave the fog a milky white color.
After a period of time, they finally reached the end of the ravine.
No one knew whether this was truly the end or not.
But all they knew was that a vortex of fog appeared in front of them.
This fog vortex was extremely massive and it blocked everything in its path. It was impossible to get around it.
“Could the dense fog of this Land of Fog, have originated from here?” Li Fuchen12Li FuchenMain Protagonist made a guess.
Fan Qiansong shook his head, “The Land of Fog is way more mystical than you can imagine. This fog vortex can be found in other areas in the Land of Fog. The biggest one was big as the sun suspending in the air.”
No one knew where the fog appeared from. Just like how no one knew what happened a few centuries ago.
With a hint of hesitation, everyone walked into the fog vortex.
Without any dizziness or any anomaly, everyone passed through the fog vortex and arrived at a world that was clear of any fog.
When looking back, there was only a thick fog. The fog vortex had disappeared.
“Such a mysterious place.” Li Fuchen’s eyes let out a feeling curiosity and perplex.
An ear-piercing sound caused their eyes to bleed as they felt like they were in a daze.
Everyone quickly circulated their qi to protect their ears.
When they lifted their heads, they saw a huge bat shaped demonic beast flying towards them.
Class 3 high-tier demonic beast—Giant Bat Beast.
The combat ability of class 3 high-tier demonic beasts varied. Just like humans who had differences between geniuses and average humans.
The Giant Bat Beast was at the peak of the Class 3 high-tier demonic beasts. To kill it was as difficult as passing the third floor of the Direct Inheritance Tower.
If it was a solo fight, none of them would be a match for it.
Only individuals who were of the same class as Emotionless Sword Xue Feng could kill this Giant Bat Beast by himself.
And it must be the Xue Feng who passed the third floor of the Direct Inheritance Tower.
“It’s a Giant Bat Beast, kill it quickly.”
Wei Shanhe knew well enough of how formidable this Giant Bat Beast was. He swiftly sent out a qi force to assault the Giant Bat Beast.
Hearing such, everyone began to launch their qi forces.
The Giant Bat Beast was extremely fast. If they didn’t slay it, they wouldn’t be able to concentrate on searching for the tomb.
Eleven streaks of qi forces shot into mid air.
But the Giant Bat Beast was very agile. It’s body drew an arc in mid air to dodge all eleven qi forces with ease.
A visible soundwave came assaulting which made everyone felt like their heads were splitting apart.
The speed and radius of the soundwave was too massive, even Su Muyu couldn’t dodge in time.
“Even one split up.”
Su Muyu executed her maneuvers and was the first to drift several tens of meters away. Wei Shanhe swiftly followed after.
In the blink of an eye, everyone split up into four groups and attacked the Giant Bat Beast from four angles.
The Giant Bat Beast was cunning and knew that it should defeat one group at a time. It took the initiative to dash at Li Fuchen’s group.
It was obvious that it intended for close combat. After all, it was the specialty of these demonic beasts.
“Get lost!” With a swing of his rod, Fan Qiansong shrouded the Giant Bat Beast with a storm of rod strikes.
Like the sound of rain and lute, the Giant Bat Beast didn’t dodge or move and endured the attacks. Wounds appeared on its body but they were just superficial wounds. Its claws attacked at Fan Qiansong.
Once this claw hit, Fan Qiansong would certainly be dead.
Fan Qianyu’s weapon was a pair of crescent moon knives. As she brandished it, countless slashes headed towards the Giant Bat Beast.
Li Fuchen had already prepared a killer move when the Giant Bat Beast dove at them. With the Rotating Flow Sword Style executed, a ring of fire crashed into the Giant Bat Beast. It stunned the Giant Bat Beast for a brief moment, which Fan Qiansong utilized to dodge. At the same time, Fan Qianyu’s attacks landed on the body of the Giant Bat Beast.
Wei Shanhe and Song Qinghe’s group launched an swarm of attacks.
Only Fu Chongshan, Xu Heishan, and Li Wuxue didn’t made any contribution. They couldn’t wait for the Giant Bat Beast to kill Li Fuchen’s group.
A dark green blade light shone… It was unknown when Su Muyu got to the top right of the Giant Bat Beast. Fresh blood spurted as her scythe swung downwards and nearly severed the wing of the Giant Bat Beast.
“Such strength. She is almost at the level of Emotionless Sword Xue Feng.” Li Fuchen’s eyes widened.
Su Muyu’s ability was without a doubt, the second most formidable Earth Realm martial artist that he had witnessed, apart from Emotionless Sword Xue Feng.
Of course, it was also because he hadn’t met a lot of experts yet.
Take for example Sword Maniac or Sword Tiger.
The Giant Bat Beast staggered and crashed into the ground with the momentum of its dive. It was completely incapable of flight as it slid on the ground.
With the Giant Bat Beast grounded, it could only utilize 30% or 40% of its overall ability. Under the assaults from everyone, the Giant Bat Beast was soon enough slain. They had its abdomen opened but couldn’t find any demonic core.
Afterwards, the group spotted another few class 3 high-tier demonic beasts. Some were strong while some were weak. With their combined ability, they were actually able to defeat an existence like Emotionless Sword Xue Feng. Thus, they didn’t meet with many obstructions.
With the fog, the route on the map became much more useful. Half a day later, the group finally found the entrance to the tomb.
The entrance was a small hill which was empty within. A massive metallic gate was constructed with two pillars on the outside.
In an instant, Li Fuchen’s group and Li Wuxue’s group made their move.
The target of Li Fuchen’s group was Xu Heishan, while Li Wuxue’s group targeted Fan Qianyu.
What Li Wuxue’s group didn’t expect was that Li Fuchen’s group seemed to already know their target was Fan Qianyu. They set up a triangle formation with Li Fuchen and Fan Qiansong in the front, while Fan Qianyu was in he back.
The first wave of attack was simple, the six of them each threw out their offensive items.
Li Fuchen threw out about a few dozens of Thunderblast Bomb, which cost about hundreds of thousands of contribution points.
Fan Qiansong and Fan Qianyu each threw out metallic bombs. Each of these bombs would explode upon contact with unstable qi flows, releasing countless metallic beads which were scarlet red, like tiny meteorites that had penetrative power.
As for Fu Chongshan’s group, all three threw out Thunderblast Bombs.
The Azure Water Sect, Violent Sabre Sect, and Heaven Fiend Sect belonged to a certain region of the Eastern Unicorn Continent. They were rather nearby to a formidable sect called the Thunderbolt Sect. This Thunderbolt Sect specialized in the production of firearms. The Thunderbolt Bombs and Thunderblast Bombs were firearms made by the Thunderbolt Sect.
These three sects would regularly visit the Thunderbolt Sect to import batches of firearms.
Of course the most powerful firearms that the Thunderbolt Sect put out for sale was only the Thunderblast Bombs.
The single firepower of a Thunderblast Bomb could kill a regular low leveled Earth Realm martial artist with its explosive power.
Intense explosions could be heard continuously. Sparks and fire extended throughout the entire radius of a hundred meters. There were scarlet red metallic beads shooting all over the place, creating hundreds of scars and pits in the surface of the ground.
Su Muyu and the rest had already retreated from this region. They observed the battle for a moment and lost interest. They headed towards the metallic gates.
The smoke gradually cleared out.
The area in front of the metallic gates was in a complete disorder.
Several meters away, Li Fuchen and his group each held onto a large shield, forming a semi dome, protecting their bodies.
On the opposite side, Fu Chongshan’s group was in a pathetic state.
The three of them were holding shields as well, but they didn’t work together and instead fended for themselves. The firepower from the Thunderblast bombs and metallic beads made them suffer quite a bit. Especially Li Wuxue who was cluttered with numerous blood holes that was oozing with blood.
