Chapter 908: The Corpse Puppet and Zombie
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
The Spiritual Sword turned into a lightning and slew the middle-aged man with infinite sharpness in a split second.
The King Lv 1 Demonic Beasts were not Su Mo’s match at all.
The middle-aged man gave a horrible shriek and then fell into the woods below as his body turned into a black panther again.
Su Mo landed as he recalled the Spiritual Swords into his consciousness ocean.
The Spiritual Swords had to be nurtured to get stronger.
In other words, with a stronger willpower and longer nurturing duration, the Spiritual Swords would become more and more powerful.
Looking at the panther’s corpse, Su Mo directly devoured it, and its blood Qi and demonic power rushed into his body.
Su Mo tried his best to turn them into his own Dark Force.
Su Mo murmured, “This doesn’t last long enough for the breakthrough!”
He needed strong and continuous Spiritual Qi to break through the cultivation level. He could not upgrade by hunting demonic beasts one after another.
After some deliberation, Su Mo came up with an idea.
Su Mo decided to collect a huge amount of Demonic Cores and devour them all together.
He then flitted through the woods and killed demonic beasts before collecting their Demonic Cores.
There were not many King demonic beasts in this place and Su Mo only found and killed several of them.
The King demonic beasts contained not the Demonic Cores but the more powerful demonic elixirs.
About seven or eight hours later, he had collected nearly 600 Demonic Cores and five demonic elixirs.
However, this was far from enough. The five divine elixirs in his body were condensed by 49 Spiritual Spirals, which needed a considerable amount of Spiritual Qi to break through the cultivation level.
Su Mo continued collecting demonic cores further in the mountain range.
He ignored those low-level beasts and only kill beasts above Lv 4.
One hour later, Su Mo suddenly stopped.
“What’s going on?” Su Mo looked at the woods ahead with confusing eyes.
The further he advanced in the mountains, the lesser the demonic beasts. Also, there was even a strong smell of death.
Su Mo sensed this smell carefully. This smell of death was so intense as if trillions of people died here, and it filled every corner of this place.
Su Mo’s brow furrowed and then he rose above the woods and advanced at a low altitude.
Su Mo was curious and wanted to find out why the was so dense here.
He had just flown for thousands of meters when a teal shadow shot off from the woods and rapidly charged toward him.
“What is this?”
Su Mo was slightly surprised and immediately parried away.
Su Mo was shocked upon realizing that the teal shadow was a Corpse Puppet.
After a martial art expert died, its corpse absorbed the essence and Spiritual Qi of the sun, moon, sky, and earth and then gradually took shape into a mutant, the so-called Corpse Puppet.
The shape of this Corpse Puppet was close to human’s, but it was covered with teal hairs and looked extremely terrifying.
The Corpse Puppets were classed by levels. This one with teal hairs was called Zombie, and its strength was close to that of an Enlightenment Realm martial artist.
Su Mo now realized that the dense smell of death came from this Corpse Puppet.
Also, this smell of death was called Corpse Qi.
There was something not right. Only one Corpse Puppet definitely could not send out such a strong Corpse Qi. There must be a huge number of Corpse Puppets in this place.
This Zombie failed to hit Su Mo and barked as it charged to him again.
“Die!” Su Mo pointed out a 3000-meter-long finger radiance that instantly pierced through the Zombie’s chest.
However, the Zombie was still alive and charged to Su Mo again madly.
Su Mo then heavily punched at this Zombie.
The Zombie’s body blew up as its Corpse Qi burst out and made the Corpse Qi around denser.
“This Corpse Qi…Can I devour it?” Su Mo’s eyes glittered a keen light as he looked at the suffusing Corpse Qi.
Although this gas was special, it was still a form of energy like the Spiritual Qi. It should be able to be devoured.
Su Mo then activated his Devouring Martial Soul without a second thought.
The swirling Corpse Qi was pulled by the devouring power and rushed to Su Mo’s body.
With a slight refining, the Corpse Qi turned into pure Dark Force and rushed to his divine elixirs.
“It really can be devoured!”
Su Mo murmured and then advanced to search for more Corpse Puppets.
After a short while, three Corpse Puppets dashed out of the woods. They were all at the level of Zombie.
“Howl! Howl! Howl!”
They roared and charged straight at Su Mo.
“Die!” Su Mo punched out a fist radiance and killed them all.
“What is this place? Why are there so many Corpse Puppets?”
Su Mo was so confused. The Corpse Puppets were rarely seen because it was extremely difficult for them to take shape. It took an ideal geographic and climate condition to form an expert to become a Corpse Puppet.
There were so many Corpse Puppets in this place, and it did not make sense!
This place definitely had something going on!
After consuming these three Corpse Puppets, Su Moimmediately used his Ghostly Magic Sight to scan the distance.
The Corpse Qi was so abundant ahead of him. Many lofty ancient trees withered under the Corpse Qi, and many Zombies were active in the woods.
“This mountain range is not simple!”
There were definitely a shocking number of Corpse Puppets in this woods.
“Good. All of you will be my supplies!”
Su Mo was ready for a massacre. There was no difference between devouring demonic beasts and Corpse Puppets.
He then released his Devouring Martial Soul and exerted the devouring power to an extreme.
“Bam! Bam! Bam!”
As he advanced, explosions rose as the Corpse Puppets exploded one after another.
Infinite Corpse Qi turned into billows that rushed to Su Mo and was then refined.
Su Mo felt awesome because there were more Corpse Puppets as he expected, and the number of them was far bigger than that of the demonic beasts.
Having advanced only for about 50,000 meters, he had already consumed more than a thousand Corpse Puppets.
The divine elixirs in his body were rumbling. With so much Corpse Qi, he was close to breaking through the cultivation level.
