To any normal man, Sacred Artifact City was no different from heaven. This was because 99% of the cultivators who came here were women.
Furthermore, because they absorbed spirit qi every day to cultivate, almost every single one of them was very beautiful. If one didn’t know better, one would think that they were from the Women Kingdom.
As everyone knew, high-level cultivators could already reconstruct their bodies and stay young forever. Unless one went to a dark place like the Hell World, it was very rare to see ugly monsters.
Qin Jue found it hard to imagine the scene of the war: a group of women rushing up to kill the enemies while men hid behind.
Of course, it wasn’t that there were no male cultivators in Sacred Artifact City. For example, among the nine top factions, one of the leaders was a male who had reached the Great Sage Stage.
However, the ratio was too skewed.
In the entire Profound Mysteries Realm, there was no other male Great Sage Stage expert.
Strictly speaking, the gender imbalance world was even more exaggerated. This was because the cultivation speed of men in this world was far slower than women, and they were even restricted by many other factors.
Although there were fewer high-level female cultivators in other worlds, their sex did not affect their cultivation. Geniuses like Su Yan and Luo Weiwei would still become extraordinary in the future and not be inferior to the Saint Stage experts.
However, in the Profound Mysteries Realm, it was as if something was suppressing male cultivators. Whether it was their meridians, spirit qi, or cultivation techniques, men were always at a disadvantage. It was no wonder that female cultivators could rise up.
Qin Jue and Su Li did as they were told and entered the courtyard. There were already many cultivators from all over the Profound Mysteries Realm inside the courtyard. They were either talking about their cultivation insights or discussing this invasion. It was rather noisy.
No one paid much attention to Su Li. After all, they were not interested in women.
But when they saw Qin Jue, their eyes lit up and they were shocked.
“What a handsome youth!”
“Yeah, those eyes are so beautiful.”
“Ah, I’m dead!”
Everyone whispered to each other, their eyes burning like flames, wishing they could skin Qin Jue alive.
“But… why is there a man here?”
Most of the male cultivators who were able to participate in this war were either the leaders of some faction or extremely powerful itinerant cultivators. They had specialized guest houses and should not have appeared here at all.
As soon as these words were spoken, everyone looked at Su Li.
“He’s probably her male pet.”
“How lucky of her to find such a beautiful male pet.”
“Heh, bringing your pet into war. You really don’t know what’s good for you.”
Su Li :”…”
For a moment, she did not know how to explain.
But on second thought, it would be great if Qin Jue was really her male pet, but… how was she supposed to handle a pet she couldn’t beat?!
“Did you also see the summons and come to help?”
At this moment, a beautiful female cultivator stepped forward and asked.
Although Sacred Artifact City was very large, it was divided into several regions. The cultivators arranged in this region were basically all itinerant cultivators, so they were also relatively easier to talk to.
Su Li nodded and said, “My name is Su Li, and this is my friend, Qin Jue. Nice to meet you all.”
In other places, Su Li might be an invincible existence that could act wantonly.
However, in Sacred Artifact City, even the weakest cultivator had a Heaven Stage cultivation. The courtyard in front of her was filled with Supreme Stage cultivators, so Su Li naturally had to restrain herself.
“Hahaha, no problem.”
“You’re too polite. We’re all here to resist the demon race, so it’s only right for us to take care of each other.”
“That’s right, that’s right.”
Although these cultivators were still secretly discussing Su Li a second ago, at this moment, they conversed enthusiastically, as if they were friends that had not seen each other for a long time.
They were here to resist the demon race and not to travel. If they were careless, they might even die tomorrow, so could they afford to offend anyone at this time?
If someone suddenly played tricks on you on the battlefield, you would die without even knowing the cause.
“Thank you, everyone.”
Su Li cupped her fists without any expression. She was already used to such situations.
After all, Supreme Supreme Stage itinerant cultivators were rarely simple.
Qin Jue didn’t care what these cultivators thought. Almost the moment he entered Sacred Artifact City, his spirit sense quickly swept through the entire city, not missing a single corner.
What surprised Qin Jue was that he actually discovered a Great Void Stage expert. From the looks of it, the other party should be the institute director of the Demi-Immortal Institute.
Although the other party was only at the first realm of the Great Void Stage, he was still absolutely invincible in the Profound Mysteries Realm.
No wonder the Demi-Immortal Institute was known as the source of all martial arts in the Profound Mysteries Realm.
In addition, Qin Jue also discovered that the eight Great Sage Stage experts all had deep and solemn auras.
Clearly, all the top experts of the Profound Mysteries Realm had gathered here, waiting to fight the Asura World Army.
It was no exaggeration to say that this war would be able to determine the fate of the Profound Mysteries Realm. Even if they manage to win, they would most likely still suffer heavy losses.
However, if they lost, it would be an absolute disaster for the entire Profound Mysteries Realm.
This was also why those middle-tier factions and itinerant cultivators had traveled thousands of kilometers to help. In a dimensional war, factions have to work past their grudges and unite in order to survive.
At night, cold wind whistled like winter. A scarlet full moon hung in the horizon, charming and alluring.
Because of the special celestial structure of this world, the moon in this world would turn red every once in a while, making it exceptionally strange.
At this moment, the sleeping Qin Jue felt the ground shake and he suddenly woke up.
“What is happening?”
Qin Jue frowned. He hated being disturbed by irrelevant people when he was sleeping.
Pushing open the door, the courtyard was already filled with cultivators. Su Li also ran out.
“It seems to be a night attack by the demon race. They’re attacking the Great City Barrier Formation.”
“We should go and take a look.”
In an instant, countless cultivators soared into the sky and flew towards the city gate. It was a magnificent sight.
“Let’s also go and take a look.”
Su Li patted the heavy sword on her back and said in a deep voice.
Not long after, the two of them arrived on the city wall. Sure enough, they saw many black figures attacking the city protecting formation as they caused layer after layer of visible energy ripples that shook the heavens and the earth. The person in the lead was actually a Grand Saint Stage expert!
Fortunately, Sacred Artifact City was a quasi-sacred artifact, and the Great City Barrier Formation had also been strengthened multiple times before this. Even Grand Saint Stage experts would struggle to break through it in a short period of time.
“You overestimate yourself.”
Suddenly, an incomparably powerful aura rose from the center of Sacred Artifact City. It instantly swept out for thousands of kilometers and swept through the void.
The many black figures that were attacking the Great City Barrier Formation immediately grunted and retreated. They were actually injured by the spirit energy fluctuations!
“Hmph, all of you can die.”
The voice sounded again with killing intent.
How could these normally high and mighty Great Sage Stage experts tolerate being attacked by a Grand Saint Stage expert?
“Wait!” Before he could finish speaking, Qin Jue suddenly interrupted Wu Ying.
The leader of the black figures quickly screamed, “Don’t kill me! I have something to say.”
