As the Wuji Mystic Realm had been sealed for several hundred years, it contained many heavenly treasures that had long since disappeared from the outside world. Thus, it wasn’t unreasonable for cultivators to fight or even kill each other over the treasures.
Some cultivators lay motionless in the bushes after entering the Wuji Mystic Realm, concealing their auras. When someone passed by them, they would suddenly jump out and launch a sneak attack, killing the other party and snatching their storage rings.
There were also some who were lucky enough to pick up high-level equipment and had a huge increase in their combat strength. They could even challenge people stronger than them.
Spirit stones and spirit herbs could be seen almost everywhere as if they were just scattered around like garbage. There were also many high-level spirit artifacts. Even the Three Major Sects didn’t have such wealth.
However, only peak Heaven Stage cultivators had the qualifications to compete for top-grade spirit artifacts like Supreme Stage spirit artifacts. Among them, Shen Zhiwen and Su Yan had each obtained one.
At this moment, in a jungle at the edge of the Wuji Mystery Realm, an Earth Stage cultivator was carefully observing his surroundings, afraid that a strong expert would suddenly jump out and kill him.
“Mm? level three spirit plant, fluorescent grass?”
Seeing a spirit herb emitting a faint glow not far away, the Earth Stage cultivator immediately revealed a pleasantly surprised expression.
However, he did not immediately rush over. Instead, he circulated his spirit energy and vigilantly observed his surroundings. Only after confirming that there was no danger did he slowly walk over.
“This fluorescent grass should be able to help me break through to the middle-phase Earth Stage.”
“Mm? What is this?”
Suddenly, this Earth Stage cultivator discovered that a thick green fog had appeared in front of him and was rapidly spreading out.
Before he could react, the green fog had already enveloped him.
The Earth Stage cultivator was stunned for a moment, but he quickly discovered that his entire body was aching!
“What’s going on…”
“Could there be poison in this fog…”
Before he could finish speaking, the Earth Stage cultivator felt his vision go black as he fell heavily to the ground. Then, the surrounding green gas seemed to have a life of its own as it crazily entered his body. Not long after, the Earth Stage cultivator’s body was engulfed, leaving nothing behind.
More and more green fog appeared, rising from all directions. It traveled at a constant speed and gathered towards the center of the Wuji Mystic Realm.
In the beginning, no one noticed it and only thought that it was some kind of special phenomenon. But as time passed, the range of the green fog spreading became bigger and bigger, and the number of cultivators being devoured increased. Finally, someone realized that this thing was poisonous!
Moreover, whether it was an Earth Stage cultivator or a Heaven Stage cultivator, once they entered the green fog, their entire bodies would suffer intense pain. Even their spirit energy would lose its effect and be quickly swallowed up.
Most importantly, the entrance to the Wuji Mystic Realm was already enveloped by a thick green fog. During this time, a Heaven Stage Itinerant Cultivator wanted to forcefully rush over, but he was swallowed before he could even fly a hundred meters. It could be seen how terrifying this place was.
If even Heaven Stage was like this, then there was even less of a need to talk about other cultivators.
Dammit! What kind of technique was this!?
“Did you guys notice that the green fog is traveling faster and faster!”
Countless screams sounded. The many cultivators who were still fighting over the treasures no longer had the mood to continue fighting. All of them tactfully lowered their weapons and flew towards the depths of the Wuji Mystic Realm.
Some cultivators who were slow could only watch helplessly as their bodies were engulfed by the green fog. They died before they could even scream.
With a loud bang, Shen Zhiwen retreated lightly, his expression slightly gloomy.
“Brother Feng, what is the meaning of this?”
“Hehe, Brother Shen, you’ve already obtained a Supreme Stage spirit artifact. Give this to me.”
The Sword Sect’s holy son smiled.
Not far away from the two of them, eight sharp blades that were neither swords nor sabers, were floating in the air. They flickered with a sharp cold light, and one could faintly see the golden runes on them. It was a Supreme Stage spirit artifact.
Just now, Shen Zhiwen had wanted to step forward to take this spirit artifact, but he had been forced away by the Sword Sect’s holy son, Feng Ze.
“And if I say no?”
Shen Zhiwen said indifferently, “Do you think you can fight two alone?”
Hearing this, Feng Ze looked at Su Yan who was glaring at him from afar and gritted his teeth. “How will I know if I don’t try?”
Ever since they entered the Wuji Mystic Realm, Shen Zhiwen had been working together with Su Yan. This was also the reason why the two of them could each obtain a Supreme Stage spirit artifact. With their strength, other than the two twins of the Archaic Mysteries Sect, almost no one could contend against them.
However, how could Feng Ze give up on a Supreme Stage spirit artifact so easily? Even if he had to brace himself, he would still attack.
“Oh no! Eldest Senior Brother!”
At that moment, a disciple of the Heaven Earth Sect flew over from afar with a panicked expression.
Along with this disciple of the Profound Yellow Sect was a disciple of the Sword Sect. “Senior Brother, run!”
“What happened?” Shen Zhiwen was dumbfounded.
“The… poisonous gas is spreading.”
“What poisonous gas?”
The disciple pointed into the distance.
Shen Zhiwen raised his eyes and looked over. Indeed, he saw a layer of green fog approaching from the end of his field of vision, as if it was going to swallow heaven and earth.
“This green fog contains a potent poison. Not even a Heaven Stage cultivator can last more than 10 breaths inside it. Let’s run.”
The disciple gulped and said fearfully.
Soon, the other disciples flew over as well, their faces filled with anxiety. “Eldest Senior Brother, what should we do now?”
Although he was a little dumbfounded, Shen Zhiwen was still the eldest senior brother of the Profound Yellow Sect. He pondered for a few seconds and ordered, “Let’s retreat first. Also, do you know where this poisonous gas is coming from?”
“I don’t know.”
The disciples looked at each other and shook their heads.
On the other side, Feng Ze had already finished listening to the Sword Sect disciple’s explanation, and he frowned as he said, “How could this be?”
“Senior Brother, let’s run. Otherwise, it’ll be too late.”
“Where are Zhao Tiezhu and Wang Erxi?”
“They’re moving towards the center. I’m here to specially inform Senior Brother.”
“Hmph, I don’t believe that this green gas is that powerful.”
Feng Ze’s eyes were cold as he directly urged his spirit energy to slash out.
A sword beam that was dozens of feet long tore through the air and crossed thousands of meters before striking the green fog.
This sword strike was enough to destroy a small mountain!
However, when the sword beam entered the green fog, it did not cause any waves. Like a stone that had fallen into the sea, it instantly disappeared.
“How is that possible?”
Feng Ze’s pupils constricted as he finally realized that things were not as simple as he had imagined.
“The poison is coming, run!”
Seeing the green gas getting closer and closer, thousands of cultivators flew over from afar. They ignored Shen Zhiwen and the others and flew forward in an overwhelming manner, afraid that they would be engulfed by the poisonous gas if they were any slower.
“Junior Sister Su Yan, take that Supreme Stage spirit artifact. We should leave too.”
Shen Zhiwen said decisively.
Su Yan did not hesitate and immediately went forward to take that Supreme Stage spirit artifact.
Seeing this, Feng Ze’s expression changed slightly. He was about to stop him until Shen Zhiwen blocked his path.
Feng Ze was furious, but he had no choice but to give up temporarily. “I’ll remember this!”
As soon as he finished speaking, Feng Ze grabbed the nearby disciple of the Sword Sect, and then he flashed towards the center of the Wuji Secret Realm.
Shen Zhiwen did not think much of Feng Ze’s vicious words. The gap between the two of them would only grow wider.
Su Yan broke the restriction on the outside of the Supreme Stage spirit artifact and took it out. Then, he, Shen Zhiwen, and the others flew towards the center of the Wuji Mystic Realm.
At this moment, no one noticed that a human face had suddenly condensed from the green fog behind them. It laughed strangely and said, “Run, go ahead and run. You’re all going to die anyway. Hahahaha.”
