After the yin-yang fish stone door in the middle was opened, the elders stopped their true essence circulation and leaned towards the opening of the stairs.
Feeling the gentle gales, they looked at each other and revealed a faint smile.
“The enchantment has weakened. It’s time to enter the ancient ruins.”
Although the strong wind on the stairs would make people feel pain, it was not enough to hurt a cultivator.
If the strong wind barrier below had not weakened, the strong wind alone would have torn a late-stage foundation establishment cultivator to death on the spot.
However, now, just the pain was enough to prove that the strong wind barrier below had weakened greatly.
At this moment, the juniors brought by the various aristocratic families slowly approached the stairway. They stood behind the elders of their families.
Su Yi and Nie Ling also arrived behind Old Master Nie.
Old Master Nie slowly turned around and looked at Nie Ling. His eyes no longer had the usual indifferent expression. His face was full of seriousness.
He said indifferently to Nie Ling, “little girl, the entrance to the ancient ruins has already been opened. After entering, grandfather might enter the depths with those old fellows. At that time, I won’t be able to accompany you to explore.”
Seeing the seriousness of her grandfather, Nie Ling’s face was also full of seriousness. She knew that with her strength, she should not have come to these ancient ruins.
However, perhaps it was to keep up with the obsession of someone in her heart.
From the corner of her eyes, she glanced at Su Yi beside her. Then, she nodded heavily at Nie Dingtian and smiled.
“Don’t worry, grandfather. Your granddaughter isn’t a vase.”
Hearing this, grandfather Nie slowly nodded and then said to Su Yi seriously, “Su Yi, when you enter the ruins later, you might be teleported to a random place in the outer area. The first thing you do is to find the girl. The dangers in the ruins are extremely dangerous. Remember to be careful.”
As he spoke, two jade pendants appeared in Old Master Nie’s hands. He then handed them to Su Yi and Nie Ling and said lightly, “after entering the ancient ruins, the communication of the immortal destiny mark will be blocked. These two sensing jades will sense each other within 10,000 meters. The two of you take them and meet up as soon as possible.”
Hearing this, he and Nie Ling nodded. This time, Nie Dingtian spoke very seriously. Even his face, which was full of vigor, was very solemn.
They took the two sensing jade pendants that Nie Dingtian handed to them. The jade pendants were in the shape of a ring, giving off a warm and cool feeling.
In his and Nie Ling’s hands, the two jade pendants emitted a faint light, as if they were sensing each other.
In the end, the two of them put away the sensing jade pendants.
Of course, this kind of situation could happen not only to Su Yi. Among the other aristocratic families, the elders were all telling their juniors about the matters after entering the ruins.
The only exception was the two people from the Sword Pavilion. This time, they did not bring their descendants. It was because previously, Xuan Yijian, who was originally a Heaven’s Favorite, was actually frightened by Su Yi. Now, his strength had not improved at all, he was like a cripple.
This was a kind of mental illness. If they wanted to completely cure it, they had to kill the culprit.
The person who caused the shadow in Xuan Yijian’s heart was Su Yi.
At this moment, Xuan Mingzi was muttering something to his third brother, Xuan Lingzi.
Then, a ray of light appeared in Xuan Mingzi’s hand, and a jade pendant that was emitting a faint light was handed over to Xuan Lingzi.
This jade pendant was the same as the one that Old Master Nie gave to Su Yi and Nie Ling. It was a sensing jade!
After the elders of the aristocratic families finished their instructions, the elders gathered one after another, ready to take the lead and go down the stairs that were still gushing with gales.
At this moment, Wang Baocai slowly came before Su Yi, and then stuffed a small note into his hand.
He also used his eyes to tell him not to look at it now.
Immediately, Su Yi was a little puzzled. What was going on that was so mysterious? However, he resisted the urge to immediately look at the message on the note in his hand.
He put away the paper and looked at where Li Mengxi and the others were. He saw that Li Mengxi’s eldest brother, Li Zhengxuan, had returned. He seemed to be in a sorry state.
At the same time, Zhao Xuening’s eldest brother, Zhao Ritian, had also returned to their uncle’s side. His face was a little dusty and he seemed to be in a sorry state.
Meanwhile, Zhao Xuening looked at him with a hint of resentment in her eyes. Before she could say a few more words, they were going to separate again.
Zhao Xuening felt helpless, but she had no choice. As a girl, she could not just stick to Su Yi’s side and follow him.
Thus, her eyes were filled with resentment as she looked at Su Yi.
As for Su Yi, he had no choice. He had promised Nie Dingtian that he would protect Nie Ling, so he would definitely do it. Now, he could only pray that he would be able to meet her in the ancient ruins.
Very quickly, the elders from the various aristocratic families began to take the lead and walk down the stairs filled with strong winds.
“All the juniors! Quickly follow!”
Wang Baocai’s elder, Wang Ruobing, the noblewoman, shouted.
Immediately, ten or so elders’ true essence surged, forming a true essence barrier that looked like a protective barrier.
Seeing this, the juniors from the various families quickly followed.
It was obvious that these juniors had formed their own teams, and they were all familiar with each other.
Among Lu Aotian’s team, there were the Tang family and the Xu family. Each of them had five people, and they were all late-stage foundation establishment experts.
On the contrary, Su Yi’s side was weaker. Wang Baocai was at the late-stage foundation establishment realm level eight, Li Zhengxuan was at the late-stage foundation establishment realm level eight, he himself was at the late-stage foundation establishment realm level seven, and Nie Ling and Li Mengxi were both at the mid-stage foundation establishment realm.
Su Yi stepped onto the stairway that was emitting the strong wind. Even with the true essence force field opened by the elders to resist, he could still feel the terrifying pressure.
However, this kind of pressure still did not affect him. Wang Baocai and Li Zhengxuan’s expressions only slightly changed.
However, the two women were not strong enough, and their faces instantly turned pale.
“Are you alright?”
Su Yi placed a hand on Nie Ling’s shoulder, and a faint true essence spread out from his body. Then, he helped Nie Ling resist the pressure brought by the strong wind.
The latter looked at him with a faint smile and said, “I’m fine. I’m much better now.”
The team led by a group of old men slowly descended the stairs. The further down they went, the more they could feel the silence of the stairs.
Everyone present did not make a sound. Only their faint footsteps and the whistling wind could be heard echoing in the entire passage.
They did not know how long they had walked for, but they could only see them slowly walking in the quiet and deep passage.
Suddenly, a dazzling light appeared in the passage. Everyone’s spirits were suddenly jolted.
In their eyes, the entrance to the ancient ruins had finally arrived.

In the great desolate region, it belonged to the realm where qi condensation and foundation establishment stage cultivators trained.
And here, the places where qi condensation stage cultivators obtained resources were mainly in Demon Wolf Valley and Demon Spirit Mountain Range.
If one wanted to go to Demon Spirit Mountain Range, one had to pass through Demon Wolf Valley.
After leaving Shangyang City, Su Yi began to head towards Demon Wolf Valley.
When he had just left the city, there were still quite a lot of people.
However, halfway through, the number of people became fewer and fewer.
“Hey! Fellow Daoist, are you alone?”
At this time, a voice came from behind Su Yi.
Su Yi’s footsteps stopped. He turned his head and looked at the person who asked the question with puzzlement. He frowned.
It was a lean man. He continued to say, “Fellow Daoist, you are heading to the Demon Wolf Valley, right? If you are alone, I advise you not to go. The monsters there are very powerful.”
Su Yi frowned. Could it be that there were foundation establishment stage demon beasts?
“There are often demon wolves in the middle stage of qi condensation over there. The demon wolf king is about to break through to the late stage of qi condensation.”
“I just escaped from there. Those demon beasts are really too powerful. If you are alone, it’s better not to take the risk.”
As the man spoke, he revealed a look of lingering fear.
If it was only the late stage of the qi condensation stage, then everything would be fine.
Su Yi smiled at the man. “Thank you for the reminder, fellow Daoist. I will be careful.”
After saying this, he walked forward without turning his head.
The man was startled, then shook his head and sighed. “Sigh, another hothead.”
After walking for about a hundred meters, a rustling sound came from the bushes by the roadside.
Su Yi stopped and looked over with narrowed eyes.
Suddenly, a demon wolf jumped out from the bushes.
[Demon beast: Demon wolf.]
[Realm: Early-stage of qi condensation.]
It bared its teeth and saliva kept flowing out from the gaps between its teeth.
With a fierce look in its eyes, it pounced toward Su Yi like lightning.
The demonic wolf in the air raised its sharp claws, opened its bloody mouth, and pounced toward Su Yi.
Su Yi curled the corner of his mouth and sneered.
“Tiangang Sword Finger!”
In the next second, a sharp sword qi jumped on the tip of his finger.
Su Yi casually pointed at the demon wolf that was pouncing at him, and the sword qi on the tip of his finger shot toward the demon wolf like lightning.
Sensing the terrifying power contained in Su Yi’s finger, the demon wolf in mid-air suddenly widened its eyes, and a look of fear appeared on its face.
However, in mid-air, it had no way of dodging.
The sharp sword qi carried a tyrannical force and pierced through the demon wolf’s head, creating a ghastly bloody hole.
With a soft sound, the demon wolf’s corpse fell to the ground.
Looking at the bloody hole in the demon wolf’s head, the corners of Su Yi’s mouth revealed a faint smile.
One had to know that the defense of a demon beast’s head was very shocking.
The Tiangang Sword Finger could actually directly pierce through the demon wolf’s head, which had the heaviest defense. It could be seen how terrifying the power of that casual finger just now was.
With a wave of Su Yi’s hand, a ray of multicolored light fell on the demon wolf’s body.
[Successfully harvested. Obtained qi condensation realm demon core x1, qi condensation realm wolf demon skin x1, qi condensation realm wolf fang x 2.]
After walking for a short while, another three demon beasts crawled out from the bushes.
However, these three demon wolves were different from the ones he had encountered before. They were slightly larger in size, and their fur was completely fiery red. Under the gentle breeze, they looked like blazing flames.
[Demon beast: Raging flame demon wolf.]
[Realm: Middle stage of qi condensation.]
It was actually three raging flame demonic wolves of the mid-stage of qi condensation. After the three raging flame demonic wolves came out, they immediately formed a triangle and surrounded Su Yi.
The intelligence of these three demon beasts was obviously higher than the ones they had encountered before. They actually knew how to surround him.
One of the raging flame demon wolves let out a howl. Following that, the three demon beasts revealed bloodthirsty gazes and opened their bloody mouths to attack Su Yi.
Su Yi’s eyes turned cold and he snorted coldly.
“Second move, Tiangang Six Sword Fingers!”
Six sword qi instantly formed on his fingers. Then, he pointed in two different directions.
In the next moment, the demon wolves in these two directions whimpered and fell to the ground. Three ghastly bloody holes appeared on their heads, and fresh blood flowed out!
The raging flame demonic wolf that pounced from the left saw that the situation was not right. It actually rolled in midair and forcefully changed its direction. After landing a few meters away from Su Yi, it turned around and ran.
Su Yi’s lips curled into a cold smile as he suddenly used his Tiangang Sword Finger.
An incomparably sharp sword qi shot towards the escaping raging flame demonic wolf like lightning.
The raging flame demonic wolf instantly fell to the ground.
Just like that, Su Yi leisurely continued on his journey.
At this moment, nearly a hundred demon wolves had already died under his hands. The immortal destiny seal had also collected nearly a hundred demon wolves’ resources.
At this moment, the sky had already darkened.
A mysterious moon hung diagonally in the horizon, and the earth was hazy.
Right at this moment, a wave of violent and ruthless wolf howls sounded from the direction of the Demonic Wolf Valley.
At the same time, a powerful aura gradually approached Su Yi’s direction.
Su Yi stopped his footsteps, and his expression was grave as he stared straight ahead.
A moment later, a demon wolf the size of a brown bear appeared in front of Su Yi.
This demon wolf had silver fur all over its body, and its pupils were emitting a blood-red light. Its fangs, which were exposed to the outside world, were emitting a cold light under the dim moonlight. It was extremely terrifying.
[Demon king: Demon wolf king.
[Realm: Late stage of qi condensation.]
A fierce light flashed in the eyes of the demon wolf king. It let out a howl and bared its teeth as it pounced toward Su Yi.
Its speed was actually several times faster than the demon beasts he had encountered before.
“Tiangang Sword Finger!”
Su Yi did not dare to be careless. He pointed out with his Tiangang Sword Finger and a sword qi that was about an inch long shot towards the wolf king.
The wolf king’s reaction was very fast. It lowered its body and actually dodged, avoiding its vital parts.
But even so, Su Yi’s sharp sword qi still pierced through its left ear.
The demon wolf king howled in pain.
Then, its body burst out again, flashing rapidly in the night.
The moment it got close to Su Yi, the demon wolf king pounced and opened its bloody mouth to bite at Su Yi’s neck.
Su Yi snorted coldly and did not dodge. He raised his palm in front of his chest.
“Fifth form. Tiangang Sword Intent Finger!”
In the next second, several inches of sword qi quickly condensed on his fingertip. With a light tap of his fingertip, the sword qi instantly turned into an afterimage. It carried a sharp and cold intent as it shot towards the demon wolf king’s head.
A surprised expression appeared in the demon wolf king’s eyes. It rolled in the air and landed on the ground, barely dodging two sword qi.
However, at this moment, a few other sword qi had already attacked.
It was too late for the wolf king to dodge, so it concentrated its spiritual power on its front claws, revealing its cold claws as it swung towards the sword qi, trying to block it.
However, in the next moment, with a soft ‘boom’, the wolf king’s right claw was instantly shattered by the sword qi. Then, the sword qi that did not lose its momentum directly shot into the wolf king’s mouth, piercing through its throat.
He only used two moves to kill the demon wolf king at the late-stage of the qi condensation realm.
Su Yi glanced at the demon wolf king’s corpse and then waved his hand.
[Hint: Successful collection, late-stage of the qi condensation realm obtained — Demon king inner core x 1, demon wolf king skin x 1, demon wolf king fang x 2.]
Then, these resources directly appeared in the immortal destiny seal.
Just as Su Yi was about to continue moving.
More than ten figures suddenly slowly appeared in front of Su Yi.
The leader looked at the demon wolf king’s corpse on the ground and berated, “How dare you! How dare you steal our demon wolf king!”
