Chapter 1244 Ancestral Spirit Pond
An earth-shattering noise resounded as jade-colored lights filled the sky and sprinkled across the world. The huge mountain-like jade elephant seal exploded, drawing gazes of horror and astonishment.
No one thought that someone who was only at the advanced Nascent Source stage could destroy the combined attack of three powerful White Jade Elephant Clan experts
His strength was comparable to a Genesis beast expert at the pinnacle of the grade 7 stage.
Liang Zheng had to bear the brunt when the giant seal exploded to pieces. He spat out a jet of blood and his face blanched with horror. He stared at Zhou Yuan in disbelief as if he saw a ghost.
In truth, Liang Zheng had never underestimated Zhou Yuan. Otherwise he wouldn’t have brought two helpers. But he realized he still hadn’t made enough preparations!
Zhou Yuan, who had made a name for himself in Guyuan Heaven, was much more difficult to deal with than he imagined.
“An advanced Nascent Source stage expert with a Genesis Qi foundation that broke the level of 100 billion…” Liang Zheng uttered bitterly. In truth, not many perfect Nascent Source stage experts could achieve such a level, but Zhou Yuan could.
The Genesis Qi around Liang Zheng’s body stilled as he retracted his greedy gaze from the Ancestral Spirit Fruits and fled without glancing back once.
He didn’t even utter a word.
His two comrades had already vanished the second the seal was broken.
They evidently understood that they had hit an iron obstacle.
Liang Zheng’s sudden escape made many grade 7 experts, who besieged the Golden Monkey Clan, turn ashen and cursed out loud.
But they also didn’t dare to stay any longer. They each used their mysterious abilities and everyone fled in the blink of an eye, including the many experts who were obstructing Tuntun.
After all, they weren’t idiots. They only listened to Liang Zheng because he rea.s.sured them that he could capture Zhou Yuan as a hostage and the deal seemed reasonable so they agreed to help.
But Liang Zheng’s plan was crushed to pieces.
They would be asking for death if they stayed any longer.
In just a few breaths, almost hundreds of people fled in various directions.
Jin Zhong and the others panted heavily as they resumed their human form. Immediately afterwards, their faces lit up with excitement and joy. They couldn’t help but gaze at Zhou Yuan in awe. They weren’t sure about Zhou Yuan’s strength before and the battle between Zhou Yuan and Jin Lan from the Golden Monkey Clan ended quickly so they didn’t see what Zhou Yuan was capable of.
However, Zhou Yuan displayed his solid Genesis Qi foundation when he smashed the giant seal with one punch.
A Genesis Qi foundation of over 100 billion was surely enough to compete with Jin Lan.
The other matches paused as everyone was stunned by the result.
Jiang Hongying pierced her spear through a thousand-feet-tall beast’s chest and sent it flying with a palm strike. But she was also dumbstruck for a moment when she saw the explosion.
Even she felt threatened by Zhou Yuan’s punch.
A Genesis Qi foundation of over 100 billion was comparable to hers.
“I underestimated him,” uttered Jiang Hongying coldly to herself. She retracted her gaze and swept a glance over the people still pestering her. With a resounding dragon roar, terrifying storm-like Genesis Qi erupted and her spear roared out. The several dragon claws hidden within the spear directly aimed for the many Genesis beast experts.
While Jiang Hongying was showing off her great powers in anger, Zhou Yuan’s side was already cleared and no one else dared step into his area.
Tuntun returned to Zhou Yuan’s head and casually wiped the bloodstains on his paws off Zhou Yuan’s hair.
Zhou Yuan didn’t notice Tuntun’s little movements. He moved under the Ancestral Spirit Tree in a flash. His Spirit in the center of his brows flickered and the five b.a.l.l.s of light hanging on the tree were severed and wrapped in his Spirit power.
Physical objects couldn’t touch Ancestral Spirit Fruits because it would gradually lose its mysterious effects even if protected in Genesis Qi and only Spirit power could come into contact with them.
Five Ancestral Spirit Fruits suspended in front of Zhou Yuan. They were almost transparent and could be easily overlooked. However, the aroma they emitted made the Spirit in the center of Zhou Yuan’s brows quiver violently.
It was of intense longing.
However, Zhou Yuan didn’t swallow them directly. After all, he had to divide them to the others. He swept a glance over Jin Zhong and the others, and with a flick of his fingers, two Ancestral Spirit Fruits floated over to them. “You guys can share these two Ancestral Spirit Fruits.”
A smile bloomed over Jin Zhong’s and the others’ faces. “Thank you, grand elder Zhou Yuan.”
It was already very generous of Zhou Yuan to share two of the five Ancestral Spirit Fruits. Jin Zhong knew well that they only earned them because they stood up for Zhou Yuan on the stone platform.
However, even if they didn’t stand up for Zhou Yuan, Jiang Hongying likely couldn’t do anything to him. Therefore, he could only say that his sudden impulse won them this opportunity.
Zhou Yuan waved his hand. Looking at the three Ancestral Spirit Fruits in front of him, he suddenly asked, “What is the opportunity from ten Ancestral Spirit Fruits that you mentioned earlier?”
Tuntun yawned. His thoughts turned into words and penetrated Zhou Yuan’s mind. “The opportunity from the Ancestral Spirit Tree isn’t just the fruits that it bears. It also contains a lot of mystery.”
“It has its own domain, which is also where the essence of the Ancestral Spirit Tree lies. You can call it the Ancestral Spirit Pond. If you enter it, not only can it strengthen your Spirit, your physical body and Genesis Qi will also be cleansed. The benefit is far superior to ten Ancestral Spirit Fruits.”
A bright light flashed in Zhou Yuan’s eyes, “The Ancestral Spirit Tree has such secrets?”
“Of course. But don’t think that anyone who gets ten Ancestral Spirit Fruits can unlock such an opportunity. It requires a secret method, and that secret method can only be performed by someone of the Alpha Holy Beast bloodline.
“Why else do you think Jin Lan wanted to go with me so much? This is one of the reasons. Humph, you should know how lucky you are to be with me.”
Tuntun’s words pulsed in Zhou Yuan’s mind, making Zhou Yuan feel a little dumbfounded. At the same time, he could sense Tuntun’s smugness.
“It’s so troublesome…”
It was no wonder that Jin Lan was so resentful that Zhou Yuan took the position from him.
The Ancestral Spirit Pond that Tuntun mentioned greatly piqued Zhou Yuan’s interest.
But…ten Ancestral Spirit Fruits isn’t that easy to achieve.
They only had five in total so where could they get the other five?
Both the Mystic Dragon Clan and the Earth-shaking Divine Tiger Clan wasn’t easy to deal with.
Zhou Yuan wrinkled his brows but he still composed himself in the end. The opportunity was hard to come by, but he still had to have patience. There was no need to make enemies everywhere he went. After all, he liked to be kind to others.
Some people said that he liked to get into a fist fight to solve everything but that was a bit slanderous.
While Zhou Yuan was talking with Tuntun, the battles under the Ancestral Spirit Tree gradually came to an end.
After a fierce battle, the Mystic Dragon Clan and the Divine Tiger Clan unsurprisingly forced the attackers to retreat.
After all, although their opponents had an advantage in numbers, they each had ulterior motives and it would be difficult for them to truly unite. Therefore, they began to feel dispirited and exhausted after their initial onslaught was blocked, and it was a matter of time before they were defeated.
The unpleasant and pungent smell of blood filled the air under the Ancestral Spirit Tree.
Only the three strongest clans remained standing. The experts of the other various clans had already retreated and dared not come forward.
However, the situation on the Divine Tiger Clan’s side was a bit more miserable compared to the Mystic Dragon Clan because besides Meng Chong, the rest were all somewhat wounded.
Jiang Hongying and Meng Chong immediately picked the Ancestral Spirit Fruits when the enemies retreated.
Jiang Hongying’s eyes blazed slightly as she gazed at the seven Ancestral Spirit Fruits she obtained, but she wasn’t someone easily satisfied.
“There’s no need to deliberately create trouble, right?” said Jiang Ba.
“You don’t have confidence in me?” Jiang Hongying raised her brows arrogantly.
Jiang Ba helplessly swept a glance over her. How would he not know that Jiang Hongying couldn’t swallow the insult? Given Jiang Hongying’s temper, she wouldn’t be satisfied if she didn’t try it.
So he made an a.s.sessment. Although Zhou Yuan has shown astonis.h.i.+ng strength, Jiang Hongying still has a higher chance of winning.
“It’s up to you.” Jiang Ba nodded. In truth, he also couldn’t stand Zhou Yuan because the Dragon Spirit Utopia was an opportunity for Wanshou Heaven. Why did you, a human, come to join in the fun? You really think no one in our Wanshou Heaven could do anything to you? It would be good if Jiang Hongying could subdue him because it would be beneficial to the Mystic Dragon Clan’s reputation given how famous Zhou Yuan is currently.
A satisfied smile suddenly spread across Jiang Hongying’s face. Without any hesitation, she moved a little and appeared in front of Jin Zhong and the others under their guarded gazes.
Jiang Hongying paid no attention to them and swung her spear up to point directly at Zhou Yuan.
“Zhou Yuan, are you brave enough to play with me?”
