The moment Luo Weiwei entered the Black Forest, she had a strange feeling. The pure Yang energy here seemed to be even richer than outside.
Although she did not know why it was so, Luo Weiwei naturally would not let go of this opportunity. She immediately found a safe place to sit cross-legged and cultivate.
As for hunting fiend beasts, the girl was not in a hurry. She had three days anyway.
But what frustrated the girl was that ever since she came to the branch hall, she had never seen Qin Jue again. She had originally wanted to ask Qin Jue about his identity, but unfortunately, she never had the chance.
But on second thought, even if she asked, Qin Jue might not necessarily tell her.
While the girl was cultivating diligently, the other new disciples began searching for fiend beasts everywhere. As they were not allowed to form teams, everyone acted alone.
In next to no time, the sounds of battle and beast roars rose and fell within the Black Forest, and things were extremely intense.
Compared to human cultivators, the attack power and defenses of fiend beasts were much stronger. But at the same time, other than special fiend beasts, most fiend beasts were slow and did not know any martial techniques. Therefore, within the same realm, very few fiend beasts could defeat human cultivators.
Of course, it might not be difficult to defeat these fiend beasts, but it was extremely difficult to kill them. Many fiend beasts would immediately choose to flee if they were outmatched. Even if they could not escape, they would still put their lives on the line attempting to do so. The final outcome was very likely that the fiend beasts would die, and the human cultivators that killed them would suffer heavy injuries.
Therefore, it was practically as difficult as ascending to the heavens for these new disciples to hunt more than three Yellow Stage fiend beasts within three days.
With a loud bang, one of the new disciples slammed into a tree trunk and spat out blood. His face instantly turned extremely pale.
“Dammit! This fiend beast is so strong!”
The disciple gritted his teeth when he saw the fiend beast charging towards him. He took out his jade tablet and activated it.
Not long after, the mentor who sensed the spirit energy fluctuation rushed over and saved the new disciple.
More than that, similar scenes were occurring elsewhere, and they were happening more and more frequently.
This was despite the fact that only low-level Yellow Stage fiend beasts were in this area as the rest had been filtered out. Even the weakest new disciple should have at least been able to handle their attacks. The reason why most of these new disciples lost was completely because they did not know how to properly use their spirit energy and martial techniques.
Thus, the purpose of this training was also to eliminate the new disciples who lacked comprehension.
After all, in order to become a cultivator, the most important thing besides talent was actual combat ability.
Just like that, the training continued for two days. During this time, more than one-third of the new disciples were either exhausted or unable to defeat the fiend beasts. They activated their jade tablets and were eventually rescued by the mentors.
Among these people, five of them had successfully hunted down a fiend beast each. Although these five people did not last until the end of the training, they had proven themselves. According to the rules, they could still enter the outer sect.
What was worth mentioning was that there was a new disciple who wanted to take advantage of the situation and snatch the spoils of war from other disciples. In the end, his actions were discovered by the mentors, and he was directly eliminated.
These mentors were all Profound Stage cultivators and had already cultivated their spirit senses. With the help of the branch hall cultivators, they didn’t feel tired despite not having slept nor rested for two days straight. As long as no high-level fiend beasts appeared, protecting more than two hundred new disciples wasn’t a problem at all.
“There’s just one more day left.”
Zhang Yue heaved a sigh of relief as he gazed at the endless Black Forest.
Thinking of this, he couldn’t help but look at Qin Jue, who was sitting cross-legged on the stone pillar. For the past two days, Qin Jue had been sitting there drinking in the daytime, and at night, he went back to sleep as if nothing had happened. He didn’t seem to care about this training at all.
However, he was the junior brother of the sect master, and his cultivation had reached the Earth Stage. Zhang Yue did not dare to say anything.
“Hmm?” Suddenly, Qin Jue opened his eyes and looked into the distance.
Sensing that something was wrong, Zhang Yue hurriedly asked, “What’s wrong, Uncle-Grandmas—?”
Before he could finish speaking, Qin Jue had already flown out at an incomparably fast speed, heading straight into the Black Forest!
In an instant, Zhang Yue realized the seriousness of the problem!
The sharp wind from the fist struck the fiend beast’s head, bringing with it a blazing aura. The fiend beast was instantly sent flying. It struggled for a moment before losing its life.
Luo Weiwei pulled back her fist, and her tense body relaxed.
Before she came to this training camp, she had already reached the middle-phase of the Yellow Stage. Dealing with these low-level Yellow Stage fiend beasts could be said to be as easy as flipping her hand. This was already the sixth fiend beast that she had killed. If there were no accidents, she should be able to squeeze into the top three or even first place.
After living in the Black Forest for two days and two nights, Luo Weiwei had also roughly discovered the pattern here. The pure Yang energy in the Black Forest during the day was abnormally dense, about three times that of the outside world.
And at night, not only was the Black Forest exceptionally cold, but the pure Yang energy would also completely dissipate, replaced by pure Yin energy. Unfortunately, Luo Weiwei was unable to absorb this energy, so she could only sigh in disappointment.
Taking out the fiend crystal of the fiend beast, Luo Weiwei wiped off the blood on it before storing it.
As only inner sect disciples had storage bags, Luo Weiwei could only use an ordinary bag.
“Mm? This aura is…” Luo Weiwei, who was about to leave, suddenly frowned and looked at the grove not far away.
With a deafening beast roar, a huge wolf suddenly rushed out of the bushes and pounced at Luo Weiwei.
Before it even got close, the giant wolf spat out two wind blades that were as sharp as knives. If they hit her, the girl would definitely die!
In the nick of time, the girl circulated her spirit energy to the maximum and hurriedly retreated. Then, she leaped high into the air and jumped onto a nearby tree branch.
The wind blades left two visible cracks on the rock behind the tree, almost splitting it.
“External discharge of spirit energy… This is a Profound Stage fiend beast!” Luo Weiwei’s mouth opened wide, revealing a shocked expression.
How could there be a Profound Stage fiend beast here?
Without waiting for the girl to figure it out, the giant wolf attacked again. It opened its bloody mouth as if it wanted to swallow the girl, making one shudder!
Although the young lady could easily kill low-level Yellow Stage fiend beasts, she had no chance of winning against Profound Stage ones. She could not even escape. She could only take out her jade tablet and activate it.
Fortunately, a mentor happened to be nearby and rushed over almost the instant the girl activated her jade tablet.
“Low-level Profound Stage fiend beast, Wind Wolf!”
Seeing the huge wolf in front of him, the mentor was also stunned. There was actually a Profound Stage fiend beast!
Before he could think further, this mentor grabbed Luo Weiwei and took her away from the Wind Wolf’s attack.
“Dammit! How could there be a Profound Stage fiend beast?!”
The mentor’s expression was unsightly. He shot out three spirit blasts from his palm that managed to strike the giant wolf. The giant wolf howled and fell from the sky.
However, the giant wolf was truly worthy of being a Profound Stage fiend beast. Even though it was hit, it didn’t die. Instead, it became even fiercer.
“This is going to be troublesome. We have to inform the other mentors and Hall Master Zhang as soon as possible.”
Bzz. Bzz. Bzz.
At that moment, the sensor on his arm suddenly vibrated.
The mentor lowered his head and saw that more than ten new disciples had activated their jade tablets at the same time!
All of a sudden, the mentor had a bad feeling.
Could it be that there was more than one Profound Stage fiend beast?
