Chapter 942 – Reward
“Substandard God Crystal!” Ji Dengtian exclaimed.
Substandard God Crystals were legendary Primal Crystal Stones even in the continent zone, and they were used by Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lords to cultivate.
Sacred Lord Hundred Refined was also extremely attracted by it. He only had a few himself, and those were obtained through very dangerous circumstances. Sacred Lord Hundred Refined almost couldn’t resist the temptation to immediately attack Zhao Feng after seeing him obtain three so easily.
“Zhao Feng, you get 70% of the inheritance while I get 30%. What’s the meaning of you taking all three crystals away?” Sacred Lord Hundred Refined immediately questioned.
“We are splitting the inheritance 70-30. This is my reward for killing the monster,” Zhao Feng snickered coldly and said.
He hadn’t thought that this Sacred Lord-level sandstone monster would have three substandard God Crystals either. It was most likely a hidden reward.
One had to know that Zhao Feng had destroyed the inheritances of three beginning-stage Sacred Lords and only received one substandard God Crystal total. After all, Sacred Lords needed substandard God Crystals to cultivate, so no Sacred Lord would mind having too many.
From the fact that Zhao Feng received three in one go, one could see that this inheritance wasn’t simple.
“You…!” Sacred Lord Hundred Refined was speechless. Indeed, these three substandard God Crystals were just the core of the sandstone monster and didn’t belong to the inheritance proper.
Zhao Feng’s aggressiveness made Sacred Lord Hundred Refined feel like Zhao Feng wasn’t scared of anything right now.
There should be many more substandard God Crystals in the inheritance of a late-stage Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lord. Sacred Lord Hundred Refined could only think like this.
The instant the sandstone monster crumbled, the trio proceeded forward.
There was a large empty lounge ahead. There were no decorations anywhere apart from some golden drawings on the nearby walls.
The instant the trio appeared, a surge of draconic providence entered the Dragon Jades on their bodies, but it quickly stopped.
“This draconic providence…?” Sacred Lord Hundred Refined was puzzled.
The amount of draconic providence was a lot smaller than what they were imagining; it didn’t even reach the level of an early-stage Sacred Lord’s inheritance.
Could it be that the information was wrong and that this place wasn’t the inheritance of a late-stage Sacred Lord? But according to what they had encountered along the way, the difficulty of this inheritance definitely exceeded that of an early-stage Sacred Lord. Without Zhao Feng’s mysterious eye-bloodline technique, Sacred Lord Hundred Refined’s group would’ve found it difficult to ever make it this far.
“That’s…!?” Ji Dengtian looked upward.
They were all instantly attracted by three floating balls of water and light in the air. Golden light shone and lit up the place.
“Congratulations on passing the trial, but since no one suits the requirements to become the inheritor, I will be giving three treasures instead,” a mysterious voice reverberated throughout the lounge, as if it was the Intent of Heaven and Earth itself.
“This is the power of Intent!” Ji Dengtian’s face was filled with shock.
“This is a just an incomplete remnant Intent of the Little World.” Sacred Lord Hundred Refined was first in shock, but he soon let out a breath.
“Intent of a Little World?” Zhao Feng was surprised. This was the first time he had heard about such a thing.
“When the Little World becomes strong and stable enough, the Sacred Lord will imprint their own Intent into the Little World, turning it into a sort of manager.” Sacred Lord Hundred Refined only gave one sentence of explanation, probably because he didn’t know too much himself.
When Zhao Feng thought about managers, he remembered the little thieving cat within the Little World of the Misty Spatial World. It was like a manager; it looked after the Green Water Sky Lotuses, the Spiritual Flesh Snow Jade Lotus Roots, the Five Poison Distinct Bees, and various other things.
“From the looks of it, the remnant Little World Intent is still following the wishes of the Sacred Lord when they were alive to choose an inheritor.” Zhao Feng touched the bottom of his chin. He could understand why there wasn’t much draconic providence.
“That’s right.” Sacred Lord Hundred Refined paused for a moment. He didn’t expect Zhao Feng to understand so quickly since Zhao Feng was only at the late stages of the Void God Realm and most likely didn’t even have a Little World yet.
The three paused for a moment. If this was a normal inheritance, they would be able to obtain all the resources as long as they passed the test, but this inheritance was different. There was a remnant Little World Intent here that was following the wishes of its master, and it was still managing this dimension.
This meant that the three of them could only obtain whatever was in the three balls of water and light. If they wanted to receive everything, they would have to destroy the Intent of a late-stage Mystic Light Realm. However, that was obviously impossible; as soon as they attacked, the remnant Intent would utilize the power of the entire Little World to crush them in an instant.
This meant that there was nothing else they could do at this point but accept their reward.
Zhao Feng carefully inspected the three balls of water and light.
There was a book named the Imperial Sky Qi Absorption Technique within the first ball of water and light. Behind it was a red flower in the shape of a clown’s face, and the final one contained ten substandard God Crystals.
Sacred Lord Hundred Refined started to think. According to their deal, Sacred Lord Hundred Refined could only obtain one of the three golden balls of water and light. He didn’t know anything about the red flower shaped like a clown face or the Imperial Sky Qi Absorption Technique, so he couldn’t estimate their value, but he could roughly guess based on the ten substandard God Crystals next to them.
The value of these two items shouldn’t be lower than ten substandard God Crystals, but everything depended on how useful it was to the recipient. For example, if an inheritance contained nothing but spears, it wouldn’t be very useful in the eyes of a sword cultivator.
“Zhao Feng, how about I take the Imperial Sky Qi Absorption Technique and you take the other two?” Sacred Lord Hundred Refined asked.
Sacred Lord Hundred Refined ignored the red flower shaped like a clown face. Being someone from a family that specialized in battle techniques, he was more interested in the Imperial Sky Qi Absorption Technique. He already had a few substandard God Crystals, and there was still a lot of time left in the Imperial Tombs, so there was still plenty of time to obtain more substandard God Crystals.
Zhao Feng’s eyebrows furrowed. Of the three, only the ten substandard God Crystals were slightly valuable to him.
Zhao Feng’s Five Elemental Wind Lightning Technique was already one of the best techniques in the world, so the Imperial Sky Qi Absorption Technique was basically useless to Zhao Feng, and the red flower in the shape of a clown’s face obviously belonged to the Dao of Ghost Corpses.
All in all, Zhao Feng wasn’t very satisfied by the rewards of this inheritance.
Seeing Zhao Feng furrow his eyebrows, Sacred Lord Hundred Refined cried out in his heart, Could it be that Zhao Feng wants the Imperial Sky Qi Absorption Technique as well?
Of the three items, the most useless one was the red flower.
Sacred Lord Hundred Refined was just about to negotiate with Zhao Feng, but the latter suddenly agreed.
“Okay, let’s take the treasures.” Zhao Feng immediately leapt up and reached out toward the ten substandard God Crystals with a claw.
“Hmm? This ball of water and light…?” Zhao Feng’s expression changed.
When his power touched the ball of water and light, he had a feeling similar to when Xin Wuheng had used softness to counter his explosive power in the Divine Illusion Dimension.
Zhao Feng’s strength was dissolved and redirected by a mysterious Intent of Water when it touched the ball of water and light. It looked like it wasn’t something that just anyone could take.
On the other side, Sacred Lord Hundred Refined didn’t succeed either.
There’s no time left. Zhao Feng circulated his Blood Devil Sun bloodline, and a surge of glass-like fire appeared around his body. It gave off a scorching and terrifying aura like he was the sun itself as it released a surge of flames.
“Sacred Lightning Dominating Punch!” Zhao Feng thrust his fists, and waves of red flaming lightning shot out like miniature suns toward the ball of water and light.
Zhao Feng’s attack was redirected by the ball of water and light, but the ignition effect of the Blood Devil Sun Bloodline couldn’t be redirected.
The entire ball of water and light ignited and disappeared within an instant.
“Fire can counter Water too.” Zhao Feng revealed a faint smile as he put the ten substandard God Crystals into the Misty Spatial World.
Sacred Lord Hundred Refined’s eyes lit up as he used a Fire-elemental technique, and soon, he broke through the ball of water and light and obtained the Imperial Sky Qi Absorption Technique.
“Leave all your treasures behind,” a ghastly, forceful voice sounded from the pathway.
“Another group is here!” Ji Dengtian’s expression changed, but he relaxed after looking at Sacred Lord Hundred Refined and Zhao Feng. They didn’t need to be scared of any normal group.
A surge of black flames suddenly appeared, transforming into a figure in black with a nasty expression and wearing a black crown.
“Nine Darkness Palace, Sacred Lord Black Demon!” Sacred Lord Hundred Refined’s expression changed.
“Zhao Feng!” Sacred Lord Black Demon roared in anger as the black flames around his body surged like he was about to attack.
At the same time, three more people arrived.
“Three Quasi-Sacred Lords!” Ji Dengtian instantly swallowed his spit. He didn’t think that this would be a group from the Thirteenth Prince’s team. Ji Dengtian had no confidence after seeing this terrifying group consisting of Sacred Lord Black Demon and three Quasi-Sacred Lords.
“That’s the Three Life Evil Ghost Flower!” An elder in purple-and-black robes instantly exclaimed as he looked at the precious herb within the ball of water and light with a fiery gaze.
“Three Life Evil Ghost Flower!” Sacred Lord Black Demon’s gaze moved away from Zhao Feng and looked upward. His heart rate suddenly increased.
“Zhao Feng, the Three Life Evil Ghost Flower isn’t useful to you. Give it to me, and I won’t trouble you over Nine Darkness Palace matters today.” Sacred Lord Black Demon’s expression was grim as he looked at the three in front of him.
It was obvious that the Three Life Evil Ghost Flower was part of the spoils of war from Zhao Feng and Sacred Lord Hundred Refined. If Sacred Lord Black Demon tried to take it by force, Sacred Lord Hundred Refined would be on Zhao Feng’s side, so Sacred Lord Black Demon used his words. As long as either Zhao Feng or Sacred Lord Hundred Refined agreed, it would be okay.
“Sure. How about we discuss the enmity between Nine Darkness Palace and me back on the continent zone?” Zhao Feng gave a faint smile and moved back a couple steps, giving space to Sacred Lord Black Demon.
Sacred Lord Black Demon paused for a moment. He hadn’t thought that Zhao Feng would agree so easily, but he didn’t care too much; the Three Life Evil Ghost Flower was the most important issue right now.
Sacred Lord Black Demon turned into a ball of black flames and swept toward the ball of water and light, aiming to destroy it.
However, a little gray cat suddenly appeared in the ball of water and light. It laughed at him and took the Three Life Evil Ghost Flower away.
“Hm? Cat?” Sacred Lord Black Demon revealed a surprised and puzzled look. Why was there suddenly a cat in the ball of water and light?
“Not good!” Sacred Lord Black Demon suddenly remembered something. The next second, the little thieving cat disappeared from the ball of water and lightning. At the same time, a pair of Scarlet Wings of Lightning spread behind Zhao Feng’s back, and he turned into a bolt of red-and-white lightning that shot into the pathway.
The three Quasi-Sacred Lords didn’t even have the time to react. It was obvious that Zhao Feng and the little thieving cat had planned this in advance. They were never planning to give the flower to Sacred Lord Black Demon from the start.
“Zhao Feng!” Sacred Lord Black Demon roared as he turned into a ball of black flames and shot directly into the pathway as well.
