“The Purple Spirit Race was destroyed, and the fiend beasts were severely injured. The experts have said that there will be no more major disasters in the Southern Land within a hundred years.”
“The Archaic Mysteries Sect is holding a celebration party. All the high-level cultivators have attended. The lineup is grand.”
“The Thunder Breeze Sect has suffered heavy losses, and will likely fall out of the Four Major Sects.”
Although more than half a month had passed, the impact of this war was still ongoing. Fortunately, the battlefield had occurred on the plains, or else the losses would have been even greater.
In addition, as expected, the Thunder Breeze Sect fell out of the ranks of the Four Major Sects.
But even so, the Thunder Breeze Sect was still a top faction that surpassed the Six Great Clans. As long as the other Three Major Sects did not attack the Thunder Breeze Sect, then no one could do anything to them.
The Three Major Sects had also made their stance very clear. Whoever struck the Thunder Breeze Sect while it was down would become an enemy of theirs.
Even the Three Major Sects held such a stance, how could the others dare to act rashly?
Moreover, Patriarch Thunder Breeze had just fallen not long ago and had only sacrificed himself to protect the Southern Land. Due to the current public sentiment, whoever dared to jump out to take advantage of the Thunder Breeze Sect was simply courting death.
Even if the Three Major Sects did not interfere, anyone that attacked the Thunder Breeze Sect would probably be scolded to death by thousands of Southern Land cultivators.
Qin Jue didn’t care about this. In any case, it had nothing to do with him. At this moment, he was falling into deep worry because his spirit wine was about to run out!
“Sigh, I don’t have much in my storage ring anymore.”
Sighing, Qin Jue felt a headache coming on.
Bai Ye’s wine cellar had already been plundered by him several times. Now, let alone high quality spirit wine, there wasn’t even a single jug of wine left inside. If this continued, his addiction to alcohol might even completely fade away.
“Why don’t I go to those large factions and get some spirit wine?”
Qin Jue suddenly came up with this idea.
With Qin Jue’s cultivation, it would be easy for him to snatch the spirit wine from those large factions without anyone knowing.
After making up his mind, Qin Jue took out a spirit tablet and searched for the Archaic Mysteries Sect. Immediately, a message popped up:
The Archaic Mysteries Sect’s official account showed that they were located at the Central Skycloud Mountain Range in the Southern Land.
Qin Jue opened the online shop next to the Archaic Mysteries Sect page and found that there was indeed a spirit wine classification inside. Top factions like the Archaic Mysteries Sect basically had their own official accounts and would open online shops to sell things. Because they had a deep foundation and had a safety guarantee, their sales were extremely high.
Qin Jue casually flipped through them. Most of these spirit wines were brewed with various heavenly treasures, and there were even many hundred-year-old treasures. Just looking at them made Qin Jue salivate.
Turning off the spirit tablet, Qin Jue judged the direction and his figure instantly disappeared from where he stood.
Ten thousand kilometers away, Qin Jue’s figure suddenly appeared in the air.
“Is it wrong for me to do this?”
Qin Jue frowned slightly. “I’m a law-abiding citizen, how can I steal from other people?”
“No, I should find something to trade with them.”
Thinking like this, Qin Jue spread out his spirit sense and continued to spread it out. It didn’t take long for him to become familiar with the surrounding area of 5,000 kilometers.
In the next moment, Qin Jue’s figure disappeared again and appeared above a forest thousands of kilometers away.
“I didn’t expect it to be in the Black Forest.”
Before he could finish his sentence, a black figure suddenly rushed out of the forest below at an incomparably fast speed.
Unfortunately, before this shadow could approach Qin Jue, it exploded into a bloody mist that scattered on the nearby leaves.
Qin Jue didn’t care about the several powerful auras rising in the distance. He clenched his five fingers and grabbed downwards.
Crack! Crack! Crack!
The ground cracked as though it was being torn apart by brute force. The entire ground was sent flying and split into two.
Sensing the commotion here, a powerful fiend beast immediately looked up to the sky and roared, warning Qin Jue.
As the Great Void Dragon and the three Legendary fiend beasts had all been killed by humans not long ago, these fiend beasts had become extremely cautious and did not dare to act rashly. They only watched from afar.
But Qin Jue acted as if he didn’t hear the warning of these fiend beasts and continued to go deeper, as if he was searching for something.
“Human, what are you doing?”
Finally, a Heaven Stage fiend beast could no longer sit still. It flew up from the forest and roared fiendishly.
Qin Jue glanced at it. The fiend beast was actually a magnified version of a monkey.
“Human, what are you doing?”
Seeing that the other party was ignoring him, the monkey asked again. Its intuition told it that this human was very dangerous.
Right at this moment, a wisp of light suddenly lit up from the torn ground below, and then a dense spirit qi spread out.
Accompanied by smoke and dust that filled the sky, a crystal clear spirit stone that emitted dense spirit qi was forcefully pulled out of the ground by Qin Jue, exposing itself outside.
“This should be big enough, right?”
Qin Jue pondered as he looked at the mountain-like spirit stone in front of him.
With the help of such a huge spirit stone, even an ordinary cultivator would be able to cultivate from the Yellow Stage to the Heaven Stage. It could probably even do more than that.
It had to be known that this spirit stone was not just big. Because it was formed under the Black Forest, it contained extremely special pure Yin and pure Yang energy that had already surpassed the high-grade. It was even possible for a Heaven Stage expert to use it to advance to the Supreme Stage. If they were lucky, they might even be able to use it to cultivate Yin Yang energy.
The monkey was stunned. It had lived here for more than a hundred years and actually didn’t know there was such a huge spirit stone hidden beneath. Furthermore, it contained pure Yin and Yang energy.
“Give it to me!”
Monkey shouted excitedly. With this spirit stone, it could break through to the Heaven Stage and step into the Supreme Stage realm, becoming a fiend beast with a manifested human form!
Seeing this, the other fiend beasts also flew out of the forest and surrounded Qin Jue. They stared at the spirit stone with burning eyes, drooling.
“Human, give up the spirit stone and we can spare your life.”
The fiend beast with the most powerful aura said. Its appearance was somewhat similar to a bull, but it had two heads. A layer of scales covered its back, making it look exceptionally fierce.
Qin Jue rolled his eyes. He wanted to use this thing to exchange for wine, so how could he give it up?
In an instant, golden light bloomed, illuminating the entire mountain forest. When the golden light dissipated, Qin Jue and the spirit stone had already disappeared, and the several Heaven Stage fiend beasts had also disappeared.
Southern Land, Central Land, Heavenly Cloud Mountain Range, Archaic Mysteries Sect…
The Skycloud Mountain Range stretched for 50 kilometers with tall peaks. It was the place where spirit veins gathered, and its scenery was renowned throughout the world. It was not considered to be inferior to the immortal realm.
As the leader of the Four Major Sects, the Archaic Mysteries Sect had been developing rapidly in recent years and have many outstanding experts. Although a large number of experts had died in the war some time ago, their foundation had not been injured. Furthermore, with the strongest human expert in the Southern Land holding down the fort, it was believed that no one could shake the position of the Archaic Mysteries Sect.
Qin Jue had come here once when he participated in the Demon-Slaying Gathering, so he was quite familiar with this place.
After easily passing through the mountain-protecting formation, Qin Jue arrived at the place where the Archaic Mysteries Sect stored the spirit wine as if he had entered heaven.
