Qin Jue fell silent as he looked at the silver-white gun with flowing lines in his hand.
This should be the first weapon that transcended the times, right?
The combination of technology and spirit energy.
Qin Jue had made an “AK-47”, but compared to the AK-47 in his previous life’s memory, Qin Jue’s gun was very different. It didn’t have any cartridges or bullets. It was just a shell.
However, after Qin Jue enhanced it with runes, this “AK-47” had completed its transformation and entered the category of spirit weapon.
Since this was the first time Qin Jue had drawn runes, these runes that were created with Qin Jue’s spirit energy were quite simple. They only contained pure strength. If it was a specialized forger, they could even add different attributes into the runes to increase their power. Therefore, the status of a weapon forger in the Spirit Central World was very high.
“Let’s try it first.”
Qin Jue raised the “AK-47” and aimed at a rock under the cliff. Although the two were thousands of meters apart, this “AK-47” was driven by spirit energy, so there was no need to worry about shooting range.
Originally, Qin Jue wanted to test the limits of this gun, but on second thought, what if it was too powerful and accidentally blew up the Xuanyi Mountain Sect? Therefore, he would definitely have to suppress his spirit energy when using it.
The silver lines on the gun quickly lit up. With only one-tenth of the runes lit, the sight was already astonishingly dazzling.
A ball of golden light shot out and instantly hit the rock below the cliff.
Accompanied by a deafening sound that startled countless birds, the entire rock disappeared and was replaced by a huge pit with a diameter of 10 meters.
And this was when they were a thousand meters apart. What if it was a hundred meters or even closer?
Perhaps even an all-out attack from an Earth Stage powerhouse would be nothing more than this. And this was with only a tenth of the silver runes lit up. If all of them were lit up, then the might of this attack would probably not be inferior to an ordinary Heaven Stage powerhouse, or even surpass that.
“It’s quite powerful.”
Qin Jue was quite satisfied.
Although this bit of destructive power was not worth mentioning compared to him, it was enough to deal with low-level cultivators. Anyway, there were no powerful cultivators here.
Uh… no. Strictly speaking, there shouldn’t be any powerful cultivators in the entire Spirit Central World.
…At least in Qin Jue’s opinion.
Most importantly, the materials needed to make this AK-47 spirit artifact were very ordinary. If it were handed over to a forger, they might be able to draw runes of various attributes, but they would absolutely not possess such tremendous might.
“Ha, it’s almost time to sleep.”
Stretching lazily, Qin Jue put away the AK-47 and then turned back to his room to sleep.
After spending half a day and reading a large number of weapon forging books, Qin Jue had finally managed to create this AK-47. At this moment, Qin Jue only wanted to sleep as soon as possible. He didn’t want to lose his hair because he had stayed up too late.
The next day, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect quaked.
After several days of silence, the Stargate Sect could no longer hold back and officially declared war on the Xuanyi Mountain Sect!
Once the news was out, it immediately caused a huge uproar.
Bai Ye slapped the black-iron armrest, and a clear handprint appeared on it.
“How arrogant!” Bai Ye shouted. “I haven’t even settled the score with them regarding the Black Forest, yet they dare declare war on my Xuanyi Mountain Sect!”
“Uh… Master, should we even accept this battle?” Zhang Jichen asked carefully.
As Bai Ye’s eldest disciple, Zhang Jichen’s cultivation had long since attained the Earth Stage, and he had a status similar to the elders’, so he naturally wouldn’t be absent on such an occasion.
However, because he had been forced to eat the “pill” refined by Bai Ye some time ago, he had been squatting in the toilet for two days and two nights. Until now, he still hadn’t recovered.
“What do you think, Master? Should we accept this battle?” Wu Ying chimed in.
Compared to Zhang Jichen, Wu Ying was in an even more miserable state and looked like he was on the verge of collapsing. If one didn’t know better, they would think that he had exhausted himself by doing it the entire night.
“Nonsense! Of course, we have to accept their battle!” Bai Ye shouted angrily. “When has my Xuanyi Mountain Sect ever been afraid of anyone?”
At this moment, First Elder, who had been silent all this while, spoke, “But… the Stargate Sect is backed by the Wei Clan.”
He was one of the only two Heaven Stage experts in the entire Xuanyi Mountain Sect, and he belonged to the same generation as Bai Ye. Therefore, he possessed extremely high prestige and was only inferior to Bai Ye in the sect.
“Wei Clan? Brilliance City’s Wei Clan?” Bai Ye was stunned.
The instructors and Zhang Yue who had returned from the Black Forest hall branch had already reported the details of the Stargate Sect’s attack on them, including Elder Wei’s matter.
If it was just the Stargate Sect, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect might not have anything to fear. However, if the Wei family got involved, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect had no chance of winning.
After all, the Wei Clan was one of the seven great clans, and they had an expert at the Supreme Stage realm holding down the fort. They also had numerous Heaven Stage experts, so destroying a small faction like the Xuanyi Mountain Sect would be extremely easy for them.
“Qin Jue killed a member of the Wei Clan. The Wei Clan will definitely not let this go,” First Elder said in a deep voice.
“Wait!” Bai Ye suddenly interrupted the First Elder. “Old Wang, I might not know much, but don’t talk this way. It was clearly that idiot from the Wei Clan who led the Stargate Sect cultivators to sneak attack our hall branch before he was killed. Was Qin Jue supposed to just stand by and do nothing?
“Furthermore, since the Wei Clan has already helped the Stargate Sect attack our Xuanyi Mountain Sect hall branch, even if we hadn’t killed that idiot, would the Wei Clan have just let us off so easily?”
“This…” The First Elder opened his mouth but was speechless.
“Master is right! The Wei Clan is obviously colluding with the Stargate Sect and wants to cause harm to us!” Zhang Jichen added.
Although this uncle-master was very young and pretty unreliable, he had still drunk wine and eaten meat together with Qin Jue before. At this time, he naturally had to speak up for Qin Jue.
Moreover, if it wasn’t for Qin Jue, all the new disciples and hall branch cultivators would have died in the Black Forest without anyone knowing.
First Elder sighed, not saying anything else.
“Don’t worry, Old Wang. Isn’t it just a Stargate Sect? What’s there to be afraid of?” Bai Ye consoled.
First Elder: “…”
He suddenly regretted recommending Bai Ye as the sect master. If the heavens could give him another chance, he would definitely recommend himself!
Initially, the two of them were both competing for the Sect Master position, and the First Elder was only nominating Bai Ye to be polite. In the end, he did not expect Bai Ye to accept it shamelessly!
Because of that, Bai Ye naturally became the Sect Master !
Seeing that the First Elder was still frowning, Bai Ye chose to ignore him and ordered, “Pass down my command. We’re accepting this battle!”
“Yes!” Wu Ying immediately obeyed and was intending to leave. However, just as he stood up, his legs went weak, and he almost wound up kneeling on the ground.
“Hmph, how many times have I told you not to train so hard? Look at you. You can’t even walk properly,” Bai Ye said resentfully.
“…” At this moment, Wu Ying finally understood what it meant to be on the verge of tears. If you hadn’t given me that “Strength Pill”, would I have become like this?
Unfortunately, Bai Ye was his master. Wu Ying could only pretend that he didn’t hear anything and obediently leave the hall.
As he watched his disciple, sometimes test subject, leave, Bai Ye turned to look in the direction of the cliff and thought to himself, Junior Brother, it’s all up to you this time.
He was well aware of Qin Jue’s strength. If the Wei Clan really chose to interfere, then only Qin Jue could resolve this crisis.
Although the Xuanyi Mountain Sect and the Stargate Sect were just two insignificant factions in the Southern Land, they were still Martial Dao sects after all. Every move they made would receive attention.
Soon, everyone within a five-hundred-kilometer radius knew that the Xuanyi Mountain Sect was going to wage war against the Stargate Sect!
