Chapter 405 – Scorpion Younglings
The value of the Solar Lunar Sky Bamboo Shoot Dew was far more precious than the others before.
It could cleanse one’s soul and the ability to increase mental energy and allowing one to comprehend were all rare items.
Zhao Feng quickly put a couple drops of the Solar Lunar Sky Bamboo Shoot Dew into the Green Spiritual Gourd.
The Green Spiritual Gourd was a unique interspatial item that had the ability to store fresh items and the loss of energy from them would be kept down to a minimum.
For example, the poison sack that Zhao Feng got before would lose its poison after it left the scorpion’s body but if it were put in the Green Spiritual Gourd, the loss would be reduced to a minimum.
“The value of the Solar Lunar Sky Bamboo Shoot Dew is just below the Blood Glass Fruit, Yin Poison Mushroom and other top treasures.”
“Thief, don’t try to keep it all to yourself.”
The geniuses of the Black Cliff Palace and Moon Demon Palace charged over.
Although the Green Spiritual Gourd and Sky Marking Stone Zhao Feng had found before were also top quality, their value and usefulness was nowhere close to the Solar Lunar Sky Bamboo Shoot Dew.
“If I can get a drop or two of the Solar Lunar Sky Bamboo Shoot Dew and cleanse my soul the chances of me reaching the True Lord Rank will increase by 20-30%.”
A couple peak True Mystic Rank geniuses used their secret techniques and hidden cards to attack Zhao Feng.
Zhao Feng didn’t panic as looked at a couple remaining drops of the Solar Lunar Sky Bamboo Shoot Dew above him.
His figure flashed and retreated dozens of yards and summoned the two green bronze ghost corpses in front of him.
“This dew isn’t very effective if taken continuously. A couple drops is enough for me.”
Zhao Feng smartly retreated and didn’t take the remaining drops of dew.
Although he was strong he didn’t want to become the enemy of more than a dozen geniuses.
There was already six to seven peak True Mystic Ranks here and most of the remaining ones were at the late stages of the True Mystic Rank, each with the strength of an overwhelming prodigy on the Sacred True Dragon Gathering.
“I only want one drop of the Solar Lunar Sky Bamboo Shoot Dew.”
“Anyone that blocks me shall die.”
A total of seven or eight geniuses furiously fought over the drops of Solar Lunar Sky Bamboo Shoot Dew.
Zhao Feng ordered the two green bronze ghost corpses to go in front of him and try to make the other geniuses trying to approach him retreat.
Apart from the three True Lord Ranks Zhao Feng’s strength was one of the top here and just the two peak True Mystic Rank ghost corpses alone were able to stop most of the others.
Of the remaining two drops of Solar Lunar Sky Bamboo Shoot Dew, both the Black Cliff Palace and Moon Demon Palace got one each.
The fighting soon ended and the largest winner was obviously Zhao Feng.
In reality if Zhao Feng wanted to take all of the dew no one could stop him but if he did that then his strength would be found out by Ye Yanyu.
He had given up a couple drops of the Solar Lunar Sky Bamboo Shoot Dew to conserve his strength and prepare for the future.
Even though Zhao Feng had purposely went low-key the people from the Black Cliff Palace and Moon Demon Palace payed attention to him.
“This brat’s eye bloodline is great for sensing treasures. Keep an eye on him.”
The two sides had decided on what to do.
Several people even watched all of Zhao Feng’s action and an accidental glance of his to a certain direction caused them to dig a hole three foot into the ground.
Zhao Feng couldn’t help but think that the others had really thought of him as a money god.
Unfortunately for the rest of the journey there was almost no treasures the same class as the Solar Lunar Sky Bamboo Shoot Dew.
Maybe it was because the three True Lord Ranks in front had realised that they had missed many top treasures and therefore slowed down a bit. The Solar Lunar Sky Bamboo Shoot Dew was also valuable for them.
As for the not-so-good treasures Zhao Feng was too lazy to get them and became low key.
Those that were watching him were disappointed. Some gave up while others were unwilling.
The best treasures went to the three True Lord Ranks, especially the little thieving cat and Ye Yanyu.
The combined rewards of Chi Gui and the blood robed True Lord weren’t even as much as Ye Yanyu’s.
Ye Yanyu’s cultivation, strength and speed stood at a peak and with the little thieving cat’s help, was perfect.
“Little thieving cat, you are indeed my lucky cat.”
Ye Yanyu liked the little thieving cat even more. The only problem left was that the blood pact between it and Zhao Feng hadn’t been dissolved yet.
On the other hand Chi Gui and the blood robed True Lord gritted their teeth in hatred towards the little thieving cat.
The little thieving cat would wave the Mystic Snake Blood Whip around and skilfully take the treasures.
Sometimes the treasures they were about to get would get taken by the little thieving cat’s whip first.
This cat was extremely cunning and had to be guarded against at all times.
Ye Yanyu smugly glanced towards Zhao Feng who was behind, as if saying the little thieving cat is best suited with me.
Zhao Feng’s expression was dim and didn’t say anything.
At a certain point in time.
The footsteps of the three True Lord Ranks paused.
Ahead was a black hole around a hundred yards wide and from it came sizzles of heat.
In the hole was dozens of scorpion younglings, around the size of a cat or dog.
Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye saw all of it and the hearts of the three True Lord Ranks jumped with joy.
There was a few dozen in the hole, many more than expected.
“Wait, although there’s a large number of scorpion younglings, only a few have pure bloodlines like the ancient giant scorpion.”
Zhao Feng concluded after scanning them with his God’s Spiritual Eye.
Bloodline was about luck. It didn’t mean that all the children would have a powerful bloodline or else from the ancient era to now, bloodlines wouldn’t be this rare.
Across the Thirteen Countries there was only a couple dozen with bloodlines including Zhao Feng, Zhao Yufei and company.
Furthermore, there was only one true ancient scorpion and it has been killed by the group.
Therefore, it could only interact with other scorpions and the probability of their children having a pure bloodline was lowered.
Zhao Feng found that of the scorpions in the hole, only six or seven were about the same as the ancient scorpion.
The words ‘about the same’ meant their physical looks. This meant that their chances of having the bloodline was bigger, but not certain.
“Hahahaha…. A whole bunch of scorpion younglings!”
The geniuses behind were all extremely excited when they same this amount.
“Let’s go everyone. Although not all of these may have pure bloodlines, they would still have some bloodline in them and are much stronger than normal spiritual pets.”
Chi Gui ordered.
The three True Lord Ranks went first and their targets obviously were the younglings with the physical appearance similar to the old one.
Zhao Feng remained calm and didn’t enter the battle.
In terms of bloodline purity the ones that the three True Lord Ranks were going for definitely had the highest chance of having a pure bloodline. However, no one else had the ability to fight against them and Zhao Feng remained low-key and wouldn’t fight against them.
His God’s Spiritual Eye also glanced across hole and nearby cracks.
Zhao Feng could see whether a scorpion had a bloodline or not.
He was slightly disappointed after looking around.
The further away from the hole they were, the colour of the scorpions were less pure and putting aside the three True Lord Ranks, even the other geniuses didn’t want them.
They had all seen the true colour of the scorpion and it was pitch black with a metallic feel to it.
However, Zhao Feng would rather take his time and inspect all these scorpions whether their appearance was impure or not.
Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye locked onto a corner.
It was a very small scorpion around the size of a baby’s palm and hid in a crack in the wall, revealing a cold red eye full of hate as it watched outside.
From the outside it seemed as like an impure coloured scorpion and it was also tiny.
However Zhao Feng found something unusual when he looked at it.
Firstly, this scorpion seemed to be intelligent. Although it seemed to be the youngest it knew how to hide and was even pulling itself further in.
Secondly, the walls hardness could be comparable to a peak tier Mortal grade weapon but it had been clawed open by the impure coloured scorpion.
Zhao Feng saw that the bloodline within this scorpion was similar to the ancient scorpions but also different.
“Could it be a variation of the giant scorpion?”
Zhao Feng’s heart moved.
There was occasions of bloodlines leaving its original trajectory and become different, such as Changeable Bodies who Zhao Yufei and Sun Haoyuan had.
“Oh well, it doesn’t matter. I’ll take it first.”
Zhao Feng opened his God’s Spiritual Eye and tried to control the scorpion.
In this process Zhao Feng met a strong and resilient defense which made him overjoyed. Apart from bloodlines, mental energy was also an important factor in whether how far this scorpion could reach.
Zhao Feng was still able to easily control this scorpion as his mental energy level was far higher than the young scorpion….
The dotted scorpion flashed through the air and landed on Zhao Feng’s hand.
Through close inspection Zhao Feng realised that the dots on the surface of the scorpion had disappeared and instead was replaced by a cold black metallic light with a few dark red dots, which looked more mysterious and wicked than the ancient giant scorpion.
“What kind of variation is this for it to be able disguise itself?”
Zhao Feng silently put this weird young scorpion into his spiritual pet bag.
Right at this moment.
The battle between the three True Lord Ranks had ended and Ye Yanyu had a joyful expression as she had taken two of the most pure blooded young scorpions.
