Chapter 790: 800 Years Old
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo spent a day in Qingyuan City to help Su Hong, Qing Pingzi, and Yue Qun improve their cultivation with his Devouring Martial Soul.
He said goodbye the next morning and headed for Ancient City.
Su Mo was still travelling alone since Hong Qingxuan had returned to the Divine Map.
This was because Hong Qingxuan would slow him down tremendously since she was weaker.
Su Mo rushed toward Ancient City as fast as he could.
Ancient City was obviously an archaic city. Furthermore, it was one of Central Continent’s biggest archaic city.
It was huge because it consisted of a main city and eight satellite cities.
The eight satellite cities were scattered around the main city in eight directions, forming a gigantic circle. The entire city spanned across thousands of miles. It was grand and majestic.
The main city itself was already bigger than Emperor Spiritual City, not to mention the satellite cities. Ancient City could easily hold more than 100 million residents.
When Su Mo finally arrived at Ancient City after a long and tiresome trip, he frowned upon seeing its size.
If the arena did not exist anymore, it would be difficult to locate the entrance of Firmament Palace in such a huge city.
After a moment, Su Mo sighed and headed toward the main city.
He entered the city after paying an entry fee and started looking for Firmament Palace’s entrance right away.
After asking around for four hours, Su Mo felt frustrated that no one knew where the Ancient Arena was.
Everyone who had heard of the Ancient Arena gave him the same reply – it was torn down since a long time ago, before the Ancient City was even built. No one knew its exact location.
Su Mo’s heart sank.
Afterward, Su Mo spent an entire day looking around the main city and all the eight satellite cities. He even took out Firmament Palace’s Holy Son token to detect the entrance, but to no avail.
Su Mo was extremely frustrated, because he could not return to Firmament Palace unless he found its entrance!
Su Mo eventually ran out of choices and went to Sky-sea Pavilion’s branch in Ancient City. He was welcomed by the Pavilion Leader after he identified himself.
Su Mo and the Pavilion Leader sat across each other in the reception room.
The Pavilion Leader was a chubby and friendly-looking man in his 60s. He was known as Pavilion Leader Huang.
“Supervisor Su, to what do I owe the pleasure?” Pavilion Leader Huang asked with a smile after exchanging pleasantries.
He was very polite despite being an expert of the Martial Royal Realm because his position in Sky-sea Pavilion was lower than Su Mo.
Nevertheless, he simply treated Su Mo as his equal rather than licking his boots.
“Pavilion Leader Huang, I came to Ancient City in search for the Ancient Arena that was part of the Holy City of Top 100!”
Su Mo asked frankly, “I wonder if you know where the Ancient Arena was originally located?”
“The Ancient Arena?” Pavilion Leader Huang paused momentarily before he replied, “It was demolished many years ago, so it’s almost impossible to determine its exact location!”
“Is it located within Ancient City?” Su Mo asked again. He was confident in finding it as long as it was within the boundaries of Ancient City.
If worst came to worst, he just had to turn the entire Ancient City upside down. It would not take very long anyway.
Pavilion Leader Huang pondered quietly before he replied uncertainly, “I don’t think it’s located within Ancient City. The Holy City of Top 100 existed in this region countless years ago, but the Ancient City was not built upon its foundation.”
Su Mo frowned at his reply. He would have wasted his time and effort if that was the case.
“However, the Holy City of Top 100 was definitely no further than 50,000 kilometers away from Ancient City!” Pavilion Leader Huang told Su Mo everything he knew even though he did not know why he was looking for it.
“Ai!” Su Mo sighed inwardly because that was too wide for him to cover!
He originally intended to return to Firmament Palace to look for Blood-striped Seed and Divine Jade, then help Hong Qingxuan receive the ultimate Legacy of Evergreen Palace.
He also wanted to find out more about Archean Spiritual Spiral martial practice from the master of Earth Palace and make use of Firmament Sect’s resources to strengthen his cultivation.
It seemed like his plan was foiled.
Su Mo was already at Lv 8 True Darkness Realm, just a step away from the Martial King Realm.
Therefore, he desperately wanted to know more about Archean Spiritual Spiral martial practice.
Su Mo was under a tremendous amount of stress. Archean martial practice had become an unresolved issue for him.
He was in an even greater hurry to find Blood-striped Seed and Divine Jade.
He also had to improve his strength as soon as possible since he had no time to waste.
Su Mo was thinking of looking for Blood-striped Seed in the Mist Mountains if he could not return to Firmament Palace!
“Pavilion Leader Huang, does your branch have any Blood-striped Seed and Divine Jade?” Su Mo asked without much expectation.
“Blood-striped seed and Divine Jade?” Pavilion Leader Huang looked confused as he was not a craftsman. He had never heard of these two materials before.
“Supervisor Su, please wait for me while I look for someone from the Craftsmanship Pavilion!” Pavilion Leader Huang then left the reception room.
After a short while, Pavilion Leader Huang returned to the room with an elder with a hunched back.
This elder had murky eyes and looked extremely old. From a normal person’s perspective, he must be more than a hundred years old.
“Supervisor Su, he’s Elder Chen, the premier craftsman of our branch!” Pavilion Leader Huang introduced the elder to Su Mo.
“It’s nice to meet you, Supervisor Su!” The elder with hunched back clasped his fists at Su Mo.
“Master Chen, you’re too courteous!”
Su Mo quickly returned his greeting. Although this elder was very old, his badge identified him as a Lower Royal craftsman.
“Supervisor Su, you can ask Elder Chen about any crafting materials. Elder Chen is already 800 years old, so he is very experienced and knowledgeable!” Pavilion Leader Huang said with a smile.
Su Mo gasped when he heard that. He could not believe that this elder was 800 years old. He was truly a relic of the past!
Su Mo had heard that an expert of the Martial Royal Realm could live up to a thousand years as long as he was not injured. This rumour turned out to be true!
“Master Chen, have you heard of Blood-striped Seed and Divine Jade before?” Su Mo asked.
“Blood-striped Seed and Divine Jade?” Master Chen trembled, and his murky eyes lit up when he heard Su Mo.
