Chapter 1774 Treasured saber transformingPlucking spirit plants was generally something simple, and the danger involved wasn’t high.
Relatively troublesome encounters only began when it came to spirit plants that were at the Sixth Level or above, which tended to be guarded by magical beasts. Some of these magical beasts had decent strength, with them usually being at least at the Fourth Level. Moreover, most of them had a trace of the dragon bloodline, so they were intelligent beasts, and they were able to communicate quite well.
Normally speaking, things like killing beasts and stealing treasures were common occurrences in the world of cultivation and the rest of the main world. As long as the treasure was enticing enough, killing beasts, killing people, or killing demons was not a problem.
But whether it was Soft Feather or Song Shuhang, their brains were wired differently from ordinary practitioners.
The two didn’t even think of killing beasts to snatch treasures.
After obtaining the consent of the Dragon Network Assistant, Song Shuhang and Soft Feather worked together to cut out caves, dunes, boulders, and pretty much any areas where spirit plants with guardian beasts, or just spirit plants, were located, and transferred them to the Inner World… They were giving these beasts and plants a new home.
Of course, when getting the other party to switch homes, they first got their consent.
Just like what was taking place at this moment…
Song Shuhang and Soft Feather had been transferred to a glacier by the Dragon Network Assistant. There were several large bears with dragon scales guarding an Icy Holy Tree.
These bears possessed strength at the Fourth Level, and they were social creatures.
The large bears agreed to move, saying that they would move to wherever the ‘Icy Holy Tree’ went. However, before they gave their consent, they stated that they first had to be defeated and convinced.
And so, Soft Feather entered into action, and beat them one by one until all of the bears called her big sis.
Then, Song Shuhang and Soft Feather cut off the entire glacier, moved it to a location near the Palace of Winter, and transferred all of the dragon-scaled bears over.
Almost all of the ‘guardian magical beasts’ were defeated by Soft Feather, and Song Shuhang didn’t even get the opportunity to make a move.
Inside the Inner World, the Inner World Assistant arranged the caves—as well as the magical beasts and the spirit plants they guarded—according to their nature. During the process, Song Shuhang didn’t have to do anything.
He felt like the old tribal chief of Dragon Blood Tribe. Did he have nothing to do at this point?
Song Shuhang said, “After returning to the main world, I’ll have to ask the seniors if there are any spirit plant masters up for hire. With the care of the spirit plant masters and the help of the Inner World’s living spring, it should be possible to grow the spirit plants in batches.”
Soft Feather suddenly said, “Senior Song, I’ve got a bold idea.”
Song Shuhang responded, “Speak your mind. I’ll decide on whether there’s a way to carry it out after hearing your proposal.”
Soft Feather said, “Senior Song, those little brothers I got today all have a very high affinity with spirit plants, and this is the reason they were able to become the guardian beasts of these spirit plants in the first place. That being said, can’t they be made into spirit plant masters?”
Although she had beaten them up to convince them… they did regard her as their elder sister now, so she felt like she had to fight for some benefits for them.
Song Shuhang turned his head, and looked at the Dragon Network Assistant. “Can these magical beasts transform after they reach the Fifth Level?”
The Dragon Network Assistant replied calmly, “No.”
The system the magical beasts practiced was different from the cultivation system; some of them had the opportunity to transform once they reached the Eighth Level or so, and some were fated to remain magical beasts for their entire lives.
After the Dragon Network Assistant replied, it added, “Beginning to search for possible transformations.”
After a while, it said, “After conducting a search, I’ve found that there’s a small world in the Black Dragon’s throat area which has a special heavenly lake. That lake produces a kind of ‘stone milk’ that allows all kinds of creatures to acquire a human-like form.”
Song Shuhang’s eyes lit up when he heard this.
Wasn’t this treasure equivalent to the ‘transformation pill’ of the world of cultivation? In the past, Doudou had taken a pill that allowed monster cultivators to acquire a transformation before the Fifth Stage.
This pill was very precious in the world of cultivation.
Song Shuhang asked, “Can you give me some of that stone milk?”
The Dragon Network Assistant said, “Yes, but its value is very high.”
After saying that, it began to calculate the value.
After a while, it replied, “It equals to half the number of spirit plants and magical beasts.”
Song Shuhang nodded, and replied, “No problem.”
The number of spirit plants and magical beasts could be reduced; what he wanted was the variety. As long as there were enough species, the number could be slowly made up for in the future.
The Dragon Network Assistant brought Song Shuhang and Soft Feather to the location of the stone milk.
Song Shuhang became more and more envious of spatial abilities.
Such abilities really made traveling much more convenient.
How cool would it be if, like Senior White, I was able to grasp spatial abilities before the Ninth Stage?
At their destination, the stone milk had already formed a small pool.
It seemed that nobody had discovered it yet.
Moreover, this ‘dragon throat world’ didn’t have any residents, and was like the dragon eye worlds—it was a special small world.
Song Shuhang arrived at the edge of the stone milk pool.
Soft Feather suggested, “Senior Song, should we test its effects first?”
Song Shuhang replied, “My disciple Little Cai should be very suitable for this test. Unfortunately, she isn’t in the Inner World at the moment.”
Little Cai had received an order from Song Shuhang to keep an eye on his parents.
Otherwise, with her having yet to cultivate to the Fifth Stage, she would’ve been perfect for checking if the stone milk was effective.
“Unfortunately, I didn’t bring my companion spirit butterfly with me this time,” Soft Feather said. “Why don’t we let my newly acquired little brothers try it out?”
“Wait, I’ve got it.” Song Shuhang’s eyes suddenly lit up.
He stretched out his hand, and grabbed at the void.
Then, an awe-inspiring saber intent condensed right in his hand.
Soft Feather looked curiously at Song Shuhang’s hand. She could sense that Song Shuhang seemed to be holding something in his hand, but she couldn’t see what it was.
Song Shuhang smiled, and said, “It’s the invisible saber insect.”
The invisible saber insect was his spirit beast, and it had yet to transform, so it was suitable for testing out the effects of the stone milk.
Song Shuhang turned to look at the Dragon Network Assistant, and asked, “How much does it need to take?”
“One drop is enough.” The Dragon Network Assistant stretched out its hand. A drop of milk flew up from the pond, and then hovered in front of Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang clutched the invisible saber insect. “Go, try drinking it.”
“???” The invisible saber insect.
Song Shuhang’s hand moved, and he used the Saber-Nurturing Technique on the invisible saber insect.
“Buzz~” The invisible saber insect vibrated happily, and then it drank the drop of stone milk obediently.
After consuming the stone milk, the body of the invisible saber insect heated up. In Song Shuhang’s eyes, its figure seemed to have been hit by something like Young Master Phoenix Slayer’s innate skill, and it melted into a pool of liquid.
Soon after, this pool of liquid stretched before finally taking on a human form.
“…” Song Shuhang.
The human form was here, but wasn’t it a bit too strange?
This form had no facial features, only having a basic humanoid shape. It was as if this form was merely a stickman in 3D.
Was it the invisible saber insect that was too special? Or was this the extent of the effects of the stone milk?
Song Shuhang looked down at the stone milk pond.
Suddenly, a bold idea emerged in his mind.
As soon as this idea emerged, he carried it out.
Song Shuhang summoned out the Inner World’s lotus flower projection, and had its roots plunge into the pond.
