Eternal Sacred King - Chapter 2784
A novel by the same Author of Reaper of the Drifting Moon and the same universe:
Chapter 2784: Stone Race
Upon entering the Treasure Pagoda, Su Zimo’s eyes lit up. Countless rare treasures were placed everywhere.
Pills, divine weapons, universal treasures, cultivation techniques, secret skills, immortal herbs, immortal ores and beast eggs…
There was practically everything available, including living or inanimate items. Everything was placed in the open on the first floor of the Treasure Pagoda.
This was Meng Hao’s first time in the Treasure Pagoda as well and he could not help but exclaim.
Each treasure was placed in sealed treasure chests of different sizes with different numbers engraved on them.
Beside every number was a groove the size of a Blessed Heaven World Badge. Lu Yun said in a low voice, “The numbers on it correspond to the Battle Merits needed to exchange for each treasure. If you want any treasure, place your Blessed Heaven World Badge on it. If you have enough Battle Merits, the treasure chest will open on its own and you can take away the treasure within. ■•Although there’s no one guarding the Treasure Pagoda, anyone who dares to snatch or steal anything inside will be killed!”
Su Zimo took a casual glance and saw a well-preserved Dao Fruit in a treasure chest not far away.
Under normal circumstances, most Perfected Spirits would cultivate Dao Fruits in their bodies. It was just that their names were different depending on the Dharmic Daos and races.
However, it was not easy to obtain such a well-preserved Dao Fruit.
Every Dao Fruit contained the Dharmic Dao profundities that this living being had cultivated for his entire life. If one could digest and absorb a single Dao Fruit, it would increase the cultivation of a cultivator greatly.
On the treasure chest was a number ten.
Ten Battle Merits!
Su Zimo was secretly speechless. A perfectly preserved Dao Fruit only required
ten Battle Merits!
Everyone from the Sword World watched as they walked down the hall of the
Essence Morning Heaven Crystal—100 Battle Merits.
Purple Blood Immortal Mushroom—200 Battle Merits.
Blood Transformation Needle—250 Battle Merits
As everyone ventured deeper, the number of Battle Merits required for the surrounding treasures increased.
Before long, Su Zimo saw a familiar treasure.
Back then, this treasure was placed in the secret ground of the Pure Magnificence Heaven by Immortal Emperor Dawn Twilight. It was extremely helpful to Su Zimo’s cultivation and it was an extremely rare and precious treasure even in the upper world.
500 Battle Merits were required to redeem a Bodhi Seed!
In the Evil Fiend Battlefield, killing a Convergence realm Evil Fiend merely earned one Battle Merit.
A Paradise Void realm Evil Fiend only gave ten Battle Merits.
It was not easy to obtain 500 Battle Merits.
An hour had passed since they arrived. They had only walked through half of the hall on the first floor of the Treasure Pagoda and the people of the Sword World had yet to see the Venus Black Gold Stone.
Lu Yun, Yu Lan, and the others frowned.
If the Venus Black Gold Stone required too many Battle Merits, the pressure on Lin Xunzhen and the others would increase as well. There was a high chance they would return empty-handed from this trip as well.
Everyone advanced until they were about to reach the end of the hall on the first floor. Finally, they saw the Venus Black Gold Stone in a treasure chest!
The Venus Black Gold Stone was only the size of a fingernail, but it cost 1,000
Yu Lan sighed softly. “1,000 Battle Merits. This is the most precious treasure on the first floor of the Treasure Pagoda.”
When Su Zimo saw the troubled expressions on the faces of Lu Yun, Yu Lan and the others, he realized that it was probably more difficult and dangerous than he had imagined to enter the Evil Fiend Battlefield to obtain Battle Merits.
1,000 Battle Merits meant that they had to obtain 100 Battle Merits each day for the ten days.
That meant that they had to kill ten Paradise Void Perfected Spirits!
Su Zimo had fought the Yaksha and Asura races briefly before and knew how terrifying such living beings were. It would indeed be troublesome to deal with them in the Evil Fiend Battlefield.
Su Zimo pondered for a moment. “If we can’t accumulate enough Battle Merits in one go, can we wait for a thousand years before returning to the Blessed Heaven World to obtain more Battle Merits?”
“Of course we can.”
Lu Yun said, “However, the Venus Black Gold Stone might have already been exchanged for the next time you come. In addition, in order to accumulate 1,000 Battle Merits, you will have to kill a lot of Evil Fiends. The powerful Evil Fiends in the Evil Fiend Battlefield will definitely target you.”
“The next time you enter the Evil Fiend Battlefield, the weaker Evil Fiends and Sin Spirits will have long hidden themselves. You’ll be only targeted by the powerful Evil Fiends inside and might not have a chance to obtain much Battle Merits.”
Feng Xu said, “From what I know, the strongest Perfected Spirits throughout history have only accumulated around 5,000 Battle Merits. Beyond that, it’s extremely difficult to continue obtaining Battle Merits.”
Lin Xunzhen said, “It’s not impossible to get 1,000 Battle Merits in ten days.” Gong Sunyu added, “Peak Masters, don’t worry. We have the Blessed Heaven World Badge. If we encounter any danger, we can retreat at any moment.” That was another use of the Blessed Heaven World Badge.
As long as they carried the Blessed Heaven World Badge, they could leave the Evil Fiend Battlefield and return to the Blessed Heaven World at any moment. However, they would have to spend ten Battle Merits each time.
Sword Immortal Tai Lai added, “That’s right. Since we’re already here, we have to fight in the Evil Fiend Battlefield.”
Usually, they were restrained when sparring with their fellow disciples in the Sword World and had too many reservations.
Now that they were in the Blessed Heaven World, there was no need for them to hold back against the Evil Fiends and Sin Spirits. They could kill to their hearts’ content and naturally, everyone was unwilling to return empty-handed!
Lu Yun, Yu Lan and the others exchanged glances and nodded after some hesitation.
Bi Tianxing said, “The Evil Fiend Battlefield is not a good place. The Evil Fiends and Sin Spirits inside are ferocious and vicious. Furthermore, they have powerful combat strength and cannot be underestimated.”
“There are even monster incarnates who have comprehended peerless divine powers among the Evil Fiends and Sin Spirits inside. If you encounter them, don’t fight them and retreat immediately!”
“The Evil Fiends and Sin Spirits inside and comprehend peerless divine powers?!” Meng Hao was shocked.
Lu Yun said, “The strongest Evil Fiends and Sin Spirits inside are definitely not inferior to paragons and monster incarnates of the ten thousand races of the various worlds. If not for that, the Evil Fiends and Sin Spirits inside would have been killed entirely long ago.”
“Since ancient times, there have been many paragons of the trichiliocosm who died inside and became food for the Evil Fiends!”
“In name, you’re the ones who went in to kill the Evil Fiends and obtain Battle Merits. However, the Evil Fiends and Sin Spirits inside also want to kill you and obtain your cultivation resources!”
Yu Lan added, “In addition, in the Evil Fiend Battlefield, apart from guarding against the Evil Fiends and Sin Spirits, you have to be wary of Perfected Spirits of other worlds as well.”
“There are no restrictions in the Evil Fiend Battlefield at all and fights between Perfected Spirits of the ten thousand races will happen frequently. All of you have to be careful!”
Feng Xu said, “I looked around earlier on and didn’t see anyone from the Heavenly Eye race or the Stone race. That’s a good thing for us.”
Su Zimo’s expression changed.
Lu Yun could tell that Su Zimo was puzzled and explained, “The Stone World is also a super large world and has a bad relationship with our Sword World. There have been grudges for a long time and it’s been like this for a few eras.” “The bloodline of the Stone race is ordinary, but their physiques are incomparably tough. Even divine weapons might not be able to injure them. The Stone race beings are very easy to recognize. Most of them are burly and tall, and their skin is gray and rough, as though they are covered in a layer of stone.”
“It’s not only in the Evil Fiend Battlefield. If you encounter people from the Stone race elsewhere, you have to be careful as well.
Su Zimo nodded and took a mental note..
