“So this is the Spirit Clan…”
Qin Jue muttered to himself. According to his spirit sense, there were at least more than twenty Saint Stage experts in this area, and some of them seemed to have already reached the Grand Saint Stage. No wonder they could be ranked among the Twelve Sacred Clans.
If stepping into the Supreme Stage was considered as the first transformation for a cultivator, then stepping into the Saint Stage would be considered as the second transformation.
There was a saying in the Sacred Land of the Central Continent that everyone below the Saint Stage was an ant.
Only a true Saint Stage expert had the strength to make a difference.
For example, the Wuji Saint and the Pure Yang Saint. Although they were only one person, they were able to suppress the entire Southern Land.
Even the Wuji Saint’s Essence Soul that had survived for hundreds of years could cause a destructive blow to the Southern Land..
Most importantly, a Saint Stage expert’s bloodline was already different and even their descendants could benefit from it.
On the other hand, the Spirit Clan had more than twenty Saint Stage experts. It could be seen how terrifying they were.
Ling Langtian was the descendant of one of the Saint Stage experts. It was just that his bloodline had become slightly thin by now. Otherwise, his cultivation wouldn’t have stopped at the late-phase of the Heaven Stage.
However, in Qin Jue’s eyes, these people were no different from ordinary Heaven Stage cultivators. In any case, they could be killed with a single punch.
Right at this moment, Ling Langtian suddenly flew out and rushed into the barrier outside the Spirit Domain. Then, he laughed proudly and said, “Hahaha, this barrier is one of the most sturdy formations of our Spirit Clan. Even a Saint Stage expert won’t be able to break it.”
The reason why the Spirit Clan was the strangest clan was because this barrier only allowed those with the bloodline of the Spirit Clan to enter.
Ling Langtian had already figured it out. Qin Jue must have used some special method to instantly travel hundreds of thousands of kilometers and arrive outside the Spirit Domain.
After all, there were only eight Great Sage experts in the entire Spirit Central World, and they were also the Sacred Masters of the Eight Great Sacred Lands. And Qin Jue looked nothing like a Sacred Master of a Sacred Land.
Perhaps Qin Jue had long wanted to harm the Spirit Clan and had set up a passage outside the Spirit Domain. Once it was activated, he could instantly travel through space.
Otherwise, why would Qin Jue offend the Spirit Clan for an Earth Stage cultivator?
Qin Jue was expressionless as he flew towards the barrier indifferently.
Seeing this, Ling Langtian’s heart immediately rose to his throat as he subconsciously took two steps back. However, he quickly realized that he was inside the barrier and did not need to be afraid.
Moreover, this was the Spirit Domain. Once Qin Jue attacked the array barrier, it would immediately alert the Spirit Clan experts. When that happens, Qin Jue might not even be able to escape.
“Fool, this barrier is connected to the core of the array formation. If you attack the barrier, you will quickly attract the experts of our clan.”
Taking a deep breath, Ling Langtian braced himself.
However, Qin Jue acted as if he didn’t hear Ling Langtian’s words and continued forward until he was close to the barrier.
Golden light bloomed, and layers of ripples appeared on the sturdy barrier, like water. Then under Ling Langtian’s incredulous gaze, Qin Jue casually passed through the barrier and stood in front of him.
“How… how is this possible?”
Ling Langtian could hardly believe his eyes. Didn’t they say that only those with the Spirit Clan bloodline could enter?
Could it be that Qin Jue was also one of his clansmen?
What a joke!
“There’s no need for you to exist anymore.”
Qin Jue raised his palm and flicked his finger.
Ling Langtian shouted in despair.
As expected, Ling Langtian exploded into a bloody mist that dissipated with the wind like gorgeous fireworks.
Without even looking, Qin Jue directly spread out his spirit sense, covering the entire Spirit Domain and searching for the Soul Tower.
Perhaps the Spirit Clan had never imagined that they would provoke such an existence because of a mere Earth Stage expert.
Su Yan carried Yun Xi and stood outside the barrier with a worried expression.
Although this was the first time she had come to the Sacred Land of the Central Continent, she had already heard of the Twelve Sacred Clans from Master Thunder Breeze back then.
In comparison, the so-called Four Major Sects were simply insignificant. Although she knew that Qin Jue was very powerful, she still didn’t know whether he could match the Spirit Clan.
Yun Xi also realized that Qin Jue was in a very bad mood, so she had been obediently lying in Su Yan’s hand. Otherwise, she absolutely wouldn’t let Su Yan touch her unless she was offered spirit wine.
“You and Yun Xi stay here and don’t move. I’ll be back soon.”
Qin Jue took out a pot of spirit wine and took a sip.
After thinking for a moment, he waved his spirit energy again and wrapped Su Yan and Yun Xi up before leaving with ease.
This was a good opportunity to bring back a few high-level cultivation techniques for Bai Ye.
“Sixth Elder, another Essence Soul was teleported over before Ling Langtian’s soul orb shattered.”
Inside the Soul Tower, the black-robed elder reported without sensing the danger.
“What Essence Soul?”
The Sixth Elder frowned.
“The Essence Soul of an Earth Stage cultivator.”
The black-robed elder added.
The Sixth Elder fell into deep thought. For some reason, he had an ominous feeling.
“Bring that Essence Soul over. I want to search his soul and see what exactly happened in Dark Moon City.”
After pondering for a moment, the Sixth Elder ordered.
The black-robed elder was just about to leave when the Soul Tower suddenly shook violently. Even with his Legendary Stage cultivation, he almost lost control of his body.
The Sixth Elder felt even more uneasy.
“Someone is attacking the Soul Tower!”
Before he could finish his sentence, an invisible hand suddenly grabbed the black-robed old man and pulled him out.
Before the poor black-robed elder could react, a heart-wrenching pain came from his mind. Then, his vision darkened and he fainted.
Qin Jue casually threw the old man away. With a flash, he directly entered the lowest level of the Soul Tower.
From the black-robed old man’s Essence Soul, Qin Jue had already found Yan Xiu’s memories. At least he could confirm that Yan Xiu’s Essence Soul was temporarily fine.
“Who is it?!”
Facing the sudden appearance of Qin Jue, everyone was shocked. They were just about to rush up when they found that they were firmly trapped in place, unable to move.
Qin Jue turned his body slightly and indeed saw a ball of blood-red light. And in the light lay a small person who looked exactly like Yan Xiu. However, it was somewhat transparent and seemed to dissipate at any moment. It was Yan Xiu’s Essence Soul.
There were also countless red balls of light in the room, each of which represented an Essence Soul. As far as the eye could see, there were no less than a hundred thousand of them. It was hard to imagine how many lives the Spirit Clan had killed.
Most of these Essence Souls were cultivators below the Heaven Stage. They were faintly connected to the Soul Tower like energy and were used to maintain the operation of the Soul Tower.
Sighing, Qin Jue stretched out his hand and grabbed Yan Xiu’s Essence Soul, intending to transcend the remaining Essence Soul.
It couldn’t be helped. These Essence Souls were too weak. Even if Qin Jue let them go, they would only die.
“Stop! What are you doing?!”
An expert from the Spirit Clan roared.
Qin Jue shook his head. These NPC-like ants didn’t seem to understand their situation. Qin Jue couldn’t be bothered to waste his breath. He swept out his spirit energy and directly killed all the Spirit Clan experts present.
In the next second, the golden light enveloped all the blood-red balls of light. It lasted for several breaths or so before dissipating, along with all the blood-red balls of light.
At the same time, the Sixth Elder had already rushed over from the upper level of the Soul Tower, with a few Legendary Stage experts following behind him.
Upon seeing this sight, the Sixth Elder was stunned for a moment before he flew into a rage. “You’re courting death!”
