Chapter 1137 Mystic Ruins
A few days after the high-cla.s.s ancestral qi vein from the great valley was completely absorbed, Zhou Yuan wasn’t in a hurry to lead the Tianyuan Region team back, and instead he chose to team up with the people from Cangxuan Heaven and searched for the ancestral qi veins they detected. After all, Cangxuan Heaven also had detected some ancestral qi veins a while back but they didn’t have the time and energy to search because a battle with the Sacred Palace broke out soon after.
And now that they had the Tianyuan Region’s support, it was a good opportunity to collect all the targets they detected into the bag.
The majority of the ancestral qi veins found were low-cla.s.s, and their quality couldn’t be compared with the high-cla.s.s vein they previously, but no one was unhappy and they all still harvested happily.
After all, high-cla.s.s veins could only come by with luck and middle and low-cla.s.s ancestral qi veins could add up to something great that was comparable to high-cla.s.s ancestral qi veins.
Every little bit of ancestral qi was a precious substance in Guyuan Heaven and it was an opportunity that couldn’t be exchanged for with any amount of money in Hunyuan Heaven or Cangxuan Heaven.
This could be seen from the fact that everyone’s strength had soared in just one month after entering Guyuan Heaven.
The body of a towering mountain was broken open, gus.h.i.+ng out billowing ancestral qi.
Standing in a high place, Zhou Yuan casually absorbed the ancestral qi coming out, but he didn’t take it too seriously because his vision had been broadened after seeing a high-cla.s.s vein. Although he didn’t look down on the low-cla.s.s ancestral qi veins, his way of thinking had been raised.
The thousands of people from the Tianyuan Region and Cangxuan Heaven sat cross-legged before an altar, greedily swallowing ancestral qi. Zhou Yuan could treat the low-cla.s.s ancestral qi as ordinary, but they obviously couldn’t.
“This is the last vein we detected,” said Li Qingchan, coming over to Zhou Yuan’s side.
Zhou Yuan nodded. “Is there any news about the teams from the Shengling Heaven these days?”
Li Qingchan shook her head and said puzzledly, “At the very beginning, we discovered traces of them far away, but recently we haven’t spotted half a shadow of them as though they all left the area.”
“Are you scared?” Mu Youlan said casually.
“We are just a team of Hunyuan Heaven. It’s impossible to scare off the entire Shengling Heaven.” Zhou Yuan shook his head, he was not that arrogant.
“What are you going to do next?” asked Qin Lian.
Zhou Yuan was silent for a moment and then looked at Chu Qing, Li Qingchan and the others. “What about you guys? Are you going to explore alone or—?”
Chu Qing thought for a while and said, “Cangxuan Heaven is the weakest of all the heavens, and our strength has fallen greatly after the Sacred Palace’s rebellion. We no longer have much ambitions. As long as we can survive till the end, and if we can obtain one of the weaker ancestral qi channels, then our mission will be considered successful.”
He smiled bitterly. “But from what I see, our modestly ambitious request might not be fulfilled.”
Given the Cangxuan Heaven’s current strength, it would be wiped out if it were to encounter people from Shengling Heaven.
Chu Qing said hesitantly, “I have discussed this matter with the Cangxuan Heaven forces. The people from Cangxuan Heaven would like to join your Tianyuan Region team and of course we will be under the command of the Tianyuan Region team. Although we aren’t as strong as you guys, we can carry out some exploration tasks.”
Zhou Yuan smiled. “I had the same thought.”
To the other five heavens shared by all races, Cangxuan Heaven was now considered half crippled. If they were to arrogantly go out alone, Zhou Yuan also wouldn’t be able to stop them. So it was best that they could leave their dignity behind.
After all, the Cangxuan Heaven still had some remaining fighting strength. For example, given Chu Qing’s strength, he could be ranked at the top of the Heavenly Sun List in Hunyuan Heaven. Therefore they could raise the Tianyuan Region team’s strength.
As for sharing profits, it wasn’t a big problem.
Qin Lian, Mu Youlan and the others also expressed their support for the plan. With the addition of Cangxuan Heaven people, the Tianyuan Region team likely wouldn’t be weaker than the teams of the Wanzu Region and the Wushen Region in terms of overall strength.
“Then it’s decided, we will return and head to Hunyuan Heaven’s territory,” said Zhou Yuan.
He was very satisfied with the decision of coming to support Cangxuan Heaven because he not only saved many of his old friends, the harvests were also unbelievable. His Genesis Qi foundation had reached the level of 2.4 billion and his Dragon Claw Heavenly Sun had grown to the level of five claws!
Most importantly, of course, was that Silver Shadow underwent a reborn-like growth.
A foundation of 2.2 billion Genesis Qi stars, coupled with the Great Flame Devil and its special materials meant that it could face enemies with a foundation of 2.2 billion. This would really help Zhou Yuan and Silver Shadow wouldn’t be treated as a human s.h.i.+eld and beaten up every time.
The most terrifying thing was that Silver Shadow also possessed the Saint Art Rainbow Sky Severing Gourd.
And now, there was a stream of rainbow light flowing around the gourd in its body.
In other words, Zhou Yuan now had two rainbow sword lights.
It was just that Silver Shadow’s Genesis Qi would be exhausted once it brought out the sword light and would have to recover for a period before it could move again. But no matter what, Zhou Yuan’s killing move had become even more powerful.
If he had those two sword lights when he fought Ji Mo a few days ago, Ji Mo likely would have been killed.
While Zhou Yuan was immersed in his harvests, Qin Lian suddenly screamed behind him.
Zhou Yuan twisted around and saw Qin Lian took out a golden incense from her spatial bag.
It suddenly ignited itself and a curl of smoke drifted up.
“It’s a message from Hunyuan Heaven!” Qin Lian exclaimed.
They had informed the other Hunyun Heaven forces and left a message incense before they came to rescue the Cangxuan Heaven people. This was originally for them to easily contact other Hunyuan Heaven forces for a.s.sistance if something happened. But in the end, they didn’t need to use it and instead the other side ignited it first.
“Something seems to have happened.” Zhou Yuan’s face turned serious. Given Hunyuan Heaven’s overall strength, it wouldn’t be a trivial matter for them to ignite the message incense.
Smoke rose under the nervous gazes of Zhou Yuan, Qin Lian and the others, and gradually formed a smoke screen before them.
A figure appeared on the smoke screen. It was Guan Qinglong.
“Grand elder Zhou Yuan, has the matter on your side been resolved?” Guan Qinglong’s calm voice sounded.
Zhou Yuan nodded and asked bluntly, “Did something happen?”
Guan Qinglong said, ”Well, during the time you left, we found a place during our exploration. There is a huge jade disc completely condensed from ancestral qi. If our speculation is right, we have encountered mystic ruins of Guyuan Heaven!”
It was rumored that in addition to ancestral qi veins in Guyuan Heaven, there might be some places abundant in ancestral qi and eventually those ancestral qi would give birth to mysteries substances. The substances were mysterious, and in terms of rarity, were superior to high-cla.s.s ancestral qi veins. In the entire Guyuan Heaven, only the nine ancestral qi channels could surpa.s.s them!
It was just that mystic ruins were extremely difficult to find and rarely born. Zhou Yuan and the others didn’t expect the Hunyuan Heaven teams would discover such a place!
However, if the other guys from Hunyuan Heaven found a mystic ruins, they wouldn’t want the Tianyun Region team to be present, right? Since there would be one less power sharing the benefit.
Zhou Yuan’s eyes flickered slightly, and he asked, “Did any other heavens find these mystic ruins?”
Guan Qinglong nodded. “The movements here are relatively huge, so the other heavens’ forces also detected it. Currently there’s the Wanshou Heaven and the Shengw.a.n.g Heaven, which is ranked second among the Sacred Race heavens. But I don’t know whether there will be other heavens.”
Zhou Yuan’s expression became more solemn. It was no wonder that Guan Qinglong would inform him—He had encountered powerful enemies.
Although Hunyuan Heaven was known to be the strongest heaven among the five heavens shared by all races, the Wanshou Heaven shouldn’t be underestimated. Its strength far surpa.s.sed Cangxuan Heaven and it could even threaten Hunyuan Heaven.
As for the Shengw.a.n.g Heaven, it should be even stronger being the second strongest heaven of the Sacred Race. It was stronger than the Shengling Heaven that Zhou Yuan encountered before.
Thinking of the Shengling Heaven, Zhou Yuan’s heart suddenly trembled. He said, “In addition to the Shengw.a.n.g Heaven, I am worried the people from the Shengling Heaven are also hurrying over there.”
No wonder there were no traces of the Shengling Heaven teams in this area recently. They likely had darted over there upon receiving the news.
Guan Qinglong’s expression grew even more solemn. If a Shengling Heaven team were also there, it would turn into a chaotic war among four heavens.
“Grand elder Zhou Yuan, please lead the Tianyuan Region team there as soon as possible.”
“Understood, we will leave immediately.” Zhou Yuan nodded.
The smoke gradually dissipated, forming a map-like image, of which one spot was s.h.i.+ning brightly. That was presumably where the Hunyuan Heaven people were.
Zhou Yuan stared at the map image, then let out a deep sigh and swept a glance over the crowd.
“Everyone, I’m afraid there’s big trouble this time—”
