The wine cellar of the Archaic Mysteries Sect was extremely large, almost as large as half of the entire Xuanyi Mountain Sect. Perhaps this was the difference between a top faction and a low-level faction.
However, there was a Runic Formation outside the wine cellar. Even Supreme Stage experts would find it difficult to escape once they were trapped inside.
“Looks like the spirit wine inside is very precious.”
Swallowing his saliva, Qin Jue took a step forward and entered the Runic Formation.
Before the Runic Formation could be activated, a dense golden light instantly enveloped an area of dozens of meters. Therefore, the newly lit Runic Formation quickly dimmed again, and Qin Jue had also successfully passed through the Runic Formation and entered the wine cellar.
Qin Jue took a deep breath and revealed an intoxicated expression.
The huge wine cellar was filled with all sorts of wine jugs and utensils. It was a dazzling collection that emitted a rich wine fragrance and spirit qi.
The spirit wine Qin Jue drank before was nothing compared to the spirit wine here.
It wasn’t that Bai Ye’s brewing skills were bad, but the difference in the materials used was just too great. It had to be known that the Archaic Mysteries Sect used spirit herbs above level three. Naturally, the taste was completely different.
Ever since he transmigrated to this world, this was the first time Qin Jue had entered such a large wine cellar. If it weren’t for the fact that the wine in Bai Ye’s cellar ran out, he probably wouldn’t have even come here.
“Wine from ten years, twenty years, thirty years ago…”
Qin Jue looked all the way over and found that the oldest wine had actually reached more than 200 years old, so he immediately picked up a pot of 200-year-old spirit wine, opened it, and drank it happily.
After the spirit wine entered his mouth, it turned into rolling spirit energy that surged into his limbs and bones. Although this bit of spirit energy was useless to Qin Jue, the feeling was really too good.
“Hahaha, how enjoyable.”
Qin Jue laughed.
It wasn’t until he finished the entire jug of wine that Qin Jue wiped his mouth in satisfaction.
Spiritual wine that had reached more than 200 years of age could already be considered top-notch. Whether it was the taste or the fragrance, they both left a rich aftertaste. Even though Qin Jue had drunk countless wines, he was still amazed.
“That spirit stone should be enough to buy half of the spirit wine here, right?”
Qin Jue roughly estimated and after confirming that there were no problems, he directly waved his hand and put more than half of the spirit wine in the wine cellar into his storage ring. Moreover, he specifically chose the older ones. He then took out the large spirit stone with a size comparable to a small mountain and placed it in the wine cellar.
Fortunately, this wine cellar was big enough. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be able to hold such a huge spirit stone.
After doing this, Qin Jue’s figure flashed and he silently disappeared from the wine cellar.
“Senior Brother Lu, you’ve arrived.”
“Yes, a few people ordered 50-year-old spirit wine. I came to get it.”
The one who spoke was an old man with a goatee that was only a meter tall, and the one called Senior Brother Lu was a young man. However, his aura was much deeper than the man with the goatee.
Under the man’s lead, the two of them quickly arrived outside the wine cellar.
The man with the goatee waved his spirit energy and it landed on the Runic Formation.
Two minutes later, the Runic Formation slowly opened, revealing the wine cellar behind it.
“Strange, why is the reaction time of the Runic Formation so slow today?”
The man with the goatee looked puzzled.
Before he finished speaking, Senior Brother Lu had already entered the wine cellar.
“What’s wrong, Senior Brother Lu?”
The man with the goatee was shocked and hurriedly followed.
“Where’s the wine?”
The man with the goatee was stunned. Only then did he realize that the entire wine cellar had been swept clean at some point in time. The remaining wine was only 10 to 20 years old. Let alone the 50 year old wine, even all the 30 year old wine were all gone.
“How could this be?”
The man with the goatee was instantly dumbfounded. He had always been in charge of the wine cellar, but now, so much spirit wine had mysteriously disappeared. If the higher-ups found out, they would definitely not let him off.
“Ning Xie, what’s going on? You have to explain it to me!”
Senior Brother Lu said coldly.
Upon hearing this, the man with the goatee wanted to cry but had no tears. It was clearly fine when he came to visit this morning. Who would have thought that it would only take half a day for the situation to become like this?
Most importantly, besides the higher-ups and him, even a Supreme Stage expert wouldn’t be able to open this Runic Formation. How did the other party bypass the Runic Formation and enter the wine cellar?
Just as the man with the goatee was about to collapse, he suddenly saw the huge spirit stone on the other side and was shocked.
Senior Brother Lu sensed that something was wrong and followed the man’s gaze. He was stunned. “What’s that?”
“It seems to be… a spirit stone?”
Even though he was already certain it was a spirit stone, Senior Brother Lu still found it unbelievable. He had never seen such a huge spirit stone before. Furthermore… there seemed to be two strange auras on it. One was Yin, and the other was Yang. They were unpredictable.
“Could it be left behind by the person who stole… no, took the spirit wine?” asked the man with the goatee hesitantly.
As soon as these words were spoken, the two of them fell silent. If this spirit stone was really left behind by the other party, then would it be considered a loss or a gain?
After a while, the two of them looked at each other and said simultaneously, “Why don’t… we report this to the higher-ups first?”
Since the other party was able to take away the spirit wine in the wine cellar without triggering the Runic Formation and had left behind such a large spirit stone, he was obviously a top-notch expert who had even attained the Legendary Stage. It was definitely impossible for the two of them to find out anything, so they could only choose to report it to the higher-ups.
“Hahaha, good wine.”
Qin Jue leaned against the blue stone and drank the spirit wine happily, his face full of satisfaction.
As expected of the spirit wine brewed by the Archaic Mysteries Sect, even a dozen-year-old one was incomparably mellow and fragrant. If an ordinary cultivator were to take a sip, it would probably be no different from taking a Spirit Cultivation Pill.
Gulp gulp gulp.
Suddenly, Yun Xi waved a blade of grass and tapped Qin Jue.
“Hmm? What is it?”
Qin Jue lowered his head.
Yun Xi stretched out a blade of grass and pointed at the wine pot in Qin Jue’s hand.
“You want to drink it too?”
Qin Jue was stunned.
Yun Xi immediately nodded.
“Fine. I’m in a good mood today. I can make an exception and give you more.”
Qin Jue laughed.
Yun Xi immediately shrank back obediently and waited for the spirit wine.
When the spirit wine fell, Yun Xi could clearly feel that the spirit qi in the wine was even richer than all the spirit wine Qin Jue had drunk before. After all, it was brewed by the Archaic Mysteries Sect and the heavenly treasures used to brew it were far from what a small faction like the Xuanyi Mountain Sect could compare with.
Not only that, the spirit wine was easy to absorb and had healing properties. This was also the reason why the sales of the spirit wine in the Archaic Mysteries Sect was extremely high. To these spirit wine enthusiasts, it was simply an item that must be carried around at all times. Even if they didn’t like to drink, it could be used for cultivation or healing.
Even Qin Jue couldn’t help but sigh. If he had thought of going to those large sects earlier, he wouldn’t have had to plunder Bai Ye’s wine cellar every day.
At this moment, there were already many golden lines on Yun Xi’s blades of grass, and they were exceptionally gorgeous. After absorbing the spirit wine, Yun Xi trembled slightly and began to crazily absorb the surrounding spirit qi. There were actually faint signs of a breakthrough.
“Don’t tell me you’re going to break through with Luo Weiwei?”
Qin Jue remembered that the girl didn’t come today because she was going to the Spirit Marrow Lake to break through. He didn’t expect that Yun Xi would also break through.
