After killing the class 4 demon and the class 4 peak-tier demonic beast, Li Fuchen12Li FuchenMain Protagonist arrived at the Black Sky Sect’s outer sect district.
A sect’s ruin was basically massive and they were normally divided into four districts. The outer sect, the inner sect, the direct disciple, and the core districts.
It wouldn’t be good to assume that the outer sect didn’t have any value as they similarly have a martial arts hall. There were also outer sect elders residing in the outer sect. According to records, the Black Sky Sect’s outer sect elders were at low-level Reincarnation Realm.
The Black Sky Sect outer sect was much bigger than what Li Fuchen had imagined. This place had mountains and rivers, it had great halls and housings, it had plazas. The size of the district was a few times bigger than the entire Azure Water Sect.
But when thinking about it, it was rather logically as the Azure Water Sect had a few tens of thousands of outer sect disciples, while the Black Sky Sect had at least a few dozen times more outer sect disciples than the Azure Water Sect.
Furthermore, in order to become a Black Sky Sect’s outer sect disciple, one had to be at the Origin Return Realm, while the Azure Water Sect only required the outer sect disciples to be at the high-levels of Qi Training Realm.
It was a known fact that 2000 years ago, the East Unicorn Continent didn’t have such thin heaven and earth energy, while also having plenty of resources. In addition to the high grades of manuals, martial artists had a much easier time to progress in their cultivation. Hence, ordinary people would be at the Qi Training Realm and one would only be considered a martial artist at the Origin Return Realm.
When walking in the outer sect district, Li Fuchen noticed that places with formation arrays were all basically neutralized. Some of them were neutralized with force, while some were neutralized with delicate methods.
Like the outer sect elders’ residences were all neutralized and everything inside had been wiped out. It was no different from bandits raiding a village.
The outer sect martial arts hall’s array had also been neutralized and there wasn’t a single manual left as the shelves were all empty.
“I wonder who obtained it?” Li Fuchen frowned.
The outer sect might only have some shallow manuals, but manuals from over 2000 years ago must be extraordinary and one might be able to benefit from them and obtain new enlightenment. It was especially so for those from other sects.
The thing that made Li Fuchen most grieved was that the outer sect resource hall’s array had also been neutralized.
It wasn’t hard to imagine all those elixirs that had been preserved. Some of the elixirs had already died out in this era and if one was able to study it and produce them again, it would be enough to greatly boost a sect’s foundation.
“It should be impossible for the outer sect to have Reincarnation Elixirs. Let me go the inner sect to take a look.”
Li Fuchen didn’t gain anything after spending a few days. Gradually, Li Fuchen started to walk towards the Black Sky Sect’s inner sect.
The inner sect was different from the outer sect. It was the place were inner sect elders and disciples were residing in.
Putting the inner sect disciples aside, those Black Sky Sect’s inner sect elders were all high-level Reincarnation Realm martial artists. It wouldn’t be an easy task to neutralize the arrays over there. At the same time, those people that entered the place would face countless threatening traps and arrays. They might just perish there and vanish.
Swish Swish Swish Swish Swish…
Just as Li Fuchen expected, the inner sect had plenty of arrays and traps. Unintentionally, Li Fuchen came into an important place that was concealed. There was a pagoda nearby which suddenly radiated with brilliance. Afterwards, energy arrows were shot over which contained the power that could kill a low-level Reincarnation Realm martial artist.
“Such powerful prowess. Could this but an offensive array pagoda?” Li Fuchen’s scalp felt numb.
The construction method of the offensive array pagoda had been lost long ago. It was rumored 3000 years ago, there was a Heaven Array Sect which was even more powerful than the Black Sky Sect. This sect gathered countless array masters to construct the array pagodas which were powerful enough to kill Battle Spirit Realm experts and even those beyond the Battle Spirit Realm.
In the situation of life and death, Li Fuchen extended his awareness which allowed him to see all the energy arrows’ trajectory clearly.
It was fortunate that his awareness was extremely powerful and it was even beyond a Reincarnation Realm martial artist. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be able to react in time.
Swish Swish Swish!
Li Fuchen’s figure flickered and evaded the energy arrows.
This array pagoda was obviously of a low-tier. The attack speed might be fast, but it only had one attack method, and Li Fuchen was able to evade the attacks in advance.
Finally, Li Fuchen got out of the array pagoda’s attack range.
“That was close.” Li Fuchen still had lingering fear in his heart.
His strength might be at the Reincarnation Realm, but his defenses were much weaker. If he was careless, a single energy arrow would be enough to kill him. After all, he couldn’t possibly be maintaining his toughest defenses at all times.
It was different for a Reincarnation Realm martial artist as they simply had to bring out the qi protection which would be enough to withstand a few attacks from the array pagoda.
There was a narrow and winding path ahead and Li Fuchen was advancing carefully.
A short moment later, Li Fuchen arrived at a small valley.
There was a small lake in the valley and there was farmland by the side of the lake. The farmland was already barren but in the center of it was a herb that was shining with light.
“This should be a small herb garden.” Li Fuchen’s eyes glistened.
If this herb was able to survive after over 2000 years, it must be something extraordinary.
Extending his awareness out, Li Fuchen approached the farmland.
Right at this moment, a layer of radiance appeared and covered the farmland, preventing Li Fuchen from approaching.
It was obvious that the farmland had the protection of an array that prevents anyone from harvesting the herb.
Enveloping the array with his awareness, Li Fuchen attempted to search for a flaw in the array.
Everything in the world had a flaw. Those people who were proficient with arrays would be able to understand the structure of the array then find a method to break it down. As for people with higher cultivation levels, they could break the array with force. Apart from those methods, one could try to detect the flaw of the array and they would be able to use a lower level of strength to break the array.
Just as Li Fuchen was searching for the array’s flaw, outside the valley, a brown-robed elder who was at the 2nd level of Reincarnation Realm was walking over.
The entire Black Sky Sect’s ruin was covered in a giant array that prohibited flight. Not even a Reincarnation Realm martial artist could fly and had to walk with their legs.
Swish Swish Swish Swish Swish…
Just as the brown-robed elder entered the 20,000 feet attack range, the array pagoda activated and started attacking.
“Damn, it is an array pagoda.”
The brown-robed dodged pathetically and would occasionally launch palm strikes to shatter the energy arrows.
But there were just too many energy arrows and because the brown-robed elder was caught off guard, he was struck by an energy arrow and suffered a rather serious injury.
After getting out of the attack range, the brown-robed elder struck a palm strike at the array pagoda from a distance away as he wanted to destroy it.
But as soon as the palm force approached the array pagoda, multiple energy arrows destroyed the palm force.
“Damn it, damn it!”
Without any solutions, the brown-robed elder gave up on the idea and walked towards the small valley.
“I found it.”
With his awareness extended, Li Fuchen’s eyes was able to see the array itself.
The array that enveloped the farmland was emitting a pale blue radiance. It was possible that the array had a flaw originally or perhaps due to the long years of wear, some flaws had appeared. In short, Li Fuchen had discovered three flaws on the array and these three flaws appeared on and off and were extremely unstable.
Releasing the True Inferno Technique Intent and the Inferno Sword Intent, Li Fuchen thrust with all his might.
The array flickered and in the next moment, it had completely crumbled.
After losing the array’s protection, Li Fuchen could see the herb in the center of the farmland very clearly.
It was a stalk of herb with golden scales. In the dusky environment, it emitted a resplendent golden light.
“Earth class low-tier herb, Golden Scale Grass?” Li Fuchen’s breath got faster.
The Golden Scale Grass was already extinct in the East Unicorn Continent.
The rumors mentioned if a regular martial artist consumed the Golden Scale Grass, he would be able to instantly become a body refinement expert. It was an extremely valuable body refinement herb and the value was equivalent to at least dozens of drops of class 5 demonic beast essence blood.
“With this Golden Scale Grass, I will be able to cultivate the Dragon Elephant Body Forging Chapter’s fourth chapter to the perfection rank with ease. I might even be able to reach the fifth chapter.”
Li Fuchen was very delighted and he was about to reach out and harvest the Golden Scale Grass.
“Golden Scale Grass. Haha, this old man’s luck is rather good.” The brown-robed elder walked into the valley and saw the Golden Scale Grass in the center of the farmland and couldn’t help but laughed loudly.
“2nd level Reincarnation Realm martial artist.”
Li Fuchen’s mood sank as he quickly harvested the Golden Scale Grass.
The Golden Scale Grass emitted golden light and sent layers of golden ripples at Li Fuchen.
The golden ripples collapsed and Li Fuchen grabbed onto the Golden Scale Grass and pulled it up along with the roots.
The brown-robed elder didn’t stop Li Fuchen as he was afraid a fight between them might destroy the Golden Scale Grass.
In any case, he saw that Li Fuchen was only a martial artist at the 8th level of Heaven Dipper Realm who he could kill with ease.
After putting the Golden Scale Grass into a jade box and keeping it inside his storage bag, Li Fuchen turned around and looked at the brown-robed elder.
“Elder, we are all humans and there is no need to start a fight over a stalk of Golden Scale Grass, right?” In fact, Li Fuchen was rather nervous. He had never fought with a Reincarnation Realm martial artist before and he didn’t know if his strength was enough to clash with a martial artist at the 2nd level of Reincarnation Realm.
“In the face of an opportunity, I will kill a human if one blocks me. I will even kill a god if one obstructs me. Hand over the Golden Scale Grass and I can let you have a complete corpse.” The brown-robed elder spoke with disdain.
He valued the Golden Scale Grass rather highly.
He was at the Reincarnation Realm and every bit of increase in strength was extremely treasured. Furthermore, this stalk of Golden Scale Grass was enough for him to increase his survival capability by 10%.
Li Fuchen frowned. In his body, the true inferno qi was circulated into the Nine Revolution Purple Qi Divine Technique pattern and quickly transmuting into the nine revolution purple qi. The nine revolution purple qi was then transmuted into the bronze sword qi before it was poured into the Clear Sky Sword Art martial pattern in his right wrist.
Right at this moment.
“Time for you to die.”
The brown-robed elder killed over from a distance of over 1000 feet. Using the speed of the Reincarnation Realm even if he was sprinting, it was still incredibly fast and it took just a blink of the eye for him to cover the distance.
In the next moment, a massive palm enveloped Li Fuchen
“So this is a Reincarnation Realm martial artist?” Li Fuchen’s eye contracted.
The opponent’s mystic class peak-tier technique was obviously at the highest rank as it was oozing with horrific technique intent. At the same moment, the opponent’s mystic class peak-tier palm art also contained the dominant palm intent. With the complements of the cultivation of the 2nd level of Reincarnation Realm, it was enough for the brown-robed elder to kill any Heaven Dipper Realm martial artist instantly.
Li Fuchen drew his Joint-Heaven Sword and slashed with the Clear Sky Sword Art.
The True Inferno Technique Intent, the Nine Revolution Purple Qi’s field, the Clear Sky Sword’s field. When all three were stacked together, it burst out with power that shocked the brown-robed elder.
The giant palm was split open. Countless sword lights engulfed the brown-robed elder and finally compressed into a sphere.
The brown-robed elder did his best to resist as he launched out several palm shadows.
But the strength of the attack that Li Fuchen burst out was unbelievable and the brown-robed elder was currently injured and couldn’t use a 100% of his strength.
Pfff Pfff Pfff Pfff!
The brown-robed elder’s qi protection ruptured first and immediately after, all the sword lights drew across his body causing fresh blood to splatter.
When the sword lights vanished, the brown-robed elder only had a breath remaining.
He spoke with horror, “Impossible, you are just at the 8th level of Heaven Dipper Realm.”
Finishing his statement, he swallowed his final breath.
Li Fuchen was rather amazed when he saw the brown-robed elder’s corpse.
He had actually killed a 2nd level Reincarnation Realm martial artist with a single sword strike.
Although this brown-robed elder had suffered injuries.
