ER – Chapter 572: Chu Wu’s Strength

During the journey, the six of them were attacked by berserk corpses multiple times .

The weakest of the berserk corpses were comparable with elite masters . Each punch and kick would possess powerful law power . Some of the formidable berserk corpses even reached the strength of a great master and were only slightly inferior to 1-star generals .

The most terrifying berserk corpses were as powerful and as tough as one could imagine . Even Xiong Dao who was a 2-star general would need to attack with over a dozen rod moves before killing it .

According to Lin Shou, the berserk corpses were separated into five classes .

The low-class berserk corpses were comparable to elite masters; mid-class berserk corpses were comparable to pinnacle masters; high-class berserk corpses were comparable to the great masters . There were also the stronger peak-class berserk corpses and Berserk Corpse King .

Low-class berserk corpses required more than one slash from Qiao Yu who was a 1-star general . Mid-class berserk corpses would require five to six rod strikes from Xiong Dao before dying . High-class berserk corpses would need over a dozen rod strikes from Xiong Dao . It was no wonder Lin Shou would say that 1-star generals would be facing certain death if they went deep into this Latent Shadow Abyss .

“Chu Wu, are you trying to treat me as a laborer? You will deal with this berserk corpse . ”

They encountered a few more berserk corpses again . Among them was a mid-class berserk corpse . After Xiong Dao eliminated the low-class berserk corpse, he left the mid-class berserk corpse alone .

After all, if he wanted to eliminate a mid-class berserk corpse, his arm would be numb for a period of time .

“You people naturally have to do more work at the initial part . It will be hard for you to do anything during the later part . ” Chu Wu said emotionlessly .

Xiong Dao raised his brows and glared . “Stop your ravings and eliminate this mid-class berserk corpse first . ”

Xiong Dao wanted to use this chance to see Chu Wu’s strength .


The mid-class berserk corpse didn’t have much rationality . When Xiong Dao backed away, it immediately headed for the closest Chu Wu .


The saber was unsheathed and there was a flash of saber light, before a massive skull flew into the air .

The one who made the move was obviously Chu Wu .

Xiong Dao would need at least five to six rod strikes before killing a mid-class berserk corpse . However, Chu Wu merely used one saber move to decapitate the berserk corpse .

Xiong Dao looked rather unpleasant as the power of this saber slash was significantly stronger than him . Was this the strength of the northern top five generals?

“Such power . ” Li Fuchen squinted his eyes .

In his opinion, Chu Wu’s saber slash actually had the strength to kill Lin Hu .

Even if Li Fuchen was a fool, he could obviously see that Chu Wu cultivated a heaven class saber art or a heaven class saber move .

The Red Rainbow Sect’s collection was rather impressive . Apart from the heaven class sword art, Red Rainbow Sword Art, they also had a heaven class saber art, and a heaven class palm art . This was something second-rate monarch-class clans couldn’t compare with . Only first-rate monarch-class clans would barely be able to contest with monarch-class sects’ foundation .

“No wonder he is one of the northern top five generals . ” Lin Shou praised .

Qiao Yu and Leng Xue had also revealed shocked expressions .

They were only 1-star generals . Even though they believed that they were rather formidable among 1-star generals, they knew that they were far inferior to Chu Wu who was a pinnacle 2-star general .

Subsequently, Xiong Dao no longer complained about Chu Wu . It was just as Chu Wu said, such a minor situation should be handled by them .

However, Xiong Dao was rather gloomy . Among everyone, apart from Chu Wu and Lin Shou, he was the strongest and he would always be dealing with the mid-class berserk corpses . He even had to deal with high-class berserk corpses too and it was taking a toll on him .

He glanced at Qiao Yu and Leng Xue . This duo’s strength was mediocre, but it was fortunate that they were adept at combination art . When they worked together, they were almost able to compete with 2-star generals .

However, berserk corpses weren’t 2-star generals and to deal with berserk corpses, one would need sufficient attack power . It didn’t make a difference if the duo worked together or not .

Ultimately, Xiong Dao placed his attention on Li Fuchen .

Li Fuchen’s strength was certainly stronger than Qiao Yu and Leng Xue . He would only use one sword to deal with a low-class berserk corpse .

But Li Fuchen was rather low profile and never dealt with any of the mid-class and high-class berserk corpses .

“Li Fuchen, are you also waiting to utilize your strength during the later part?” Xiong Dao sneered .

Li Fuchen smiled and said, “I noticed that you were rather proactive earlier on and didn’t want to fight over with you . ”。

Xiong Dao intentionally wanted to perform earlier and was doing his best . Right now, he felt that it was rather strenuous and no longer wanted to fight on the frontline .

Xiong Dao replied unhappily, “I am tired, is that okay?”

He wasn’t really tired, but the Latent Shadow Abyss was extremely dangerous and he had to reserve some strength for later .

“Alright, we will take turns to deal with mid-class and high-class berserk corpses . ” Li Fuchen nodded .

The berserk corpses on the wilderness were all scattered out and they finally encountered another mid-class berserk corpse after a long time .

Li Fuchen stepped forward and drew his Red Lotus Sword before swinging out a scarlet and bright thread .


The mid-class berserk corpse’s head tilted and its neck was severed halfway through .

It was no different from a decapitation .

In terms of attack power, Li Fuchen’s sword move wasn’t much different from Chu Wu .

Most importantly, Chu Wu’s cultivation was already at the peak level of Battle Spirit Realm while Li Fuchen was only at the 5th level of Battle Spirit Realm .

Of course, the gap between the duo wasn’t as significant as four levels .

From that saber slash earlier, Chu Wu’s saber art probably wasn’t at the trance stage yet .

However, Li Fuchen’s Flowing Merciless Edge was already at the trance stage .

This was something that Chu Wu couldn’t compare with .

Lin Shou had already witnessed Li Fuchen’s strength, therefore, he wasn’t surprised .

But Xiong Dao and the others were rather surprised .

Just from this sword move, Li Fuchen’s strength was at least at the 2-star general level .

“You are really putting on a disguise!” Xiong Dao twitched his mouth and admitted that Li Fuchen wasn’t weaker than him .

Xiong Dao might need five or six rod strikes to kill a mid-class berserk corpse, but it was mainly because the rod was a blunt weapon . The berserk corpse had tough defense and was rather resistant to blunt weapons .

It was the same as using a rod to strike at a tree which was inferior to using a blade to slice a tree .

If the opposition was a person, then the rod’s lethal power was much more significant . They might look unharmed on the outside, but the inside was probably shattered .

The concept of time within the Latent Shadow Abyss was rather unclear and it was unknown how much time had gone by . The group travelled from a wilderness to a mountain range .

The mountain range was very desolate and it was barren, and void of any vegetation . It gave off a very spacious and illusory feeling .

After eliminating a few waves of berserk corpses, the six of them arrived in front of a pitch-black cave .

After scanning inside with their spiritual awarenesses, everyone, including Li Fuchen, had eyes that lit up .

The cave wasn’t deep and was only around over a hundred meters . At the end of the cave, all six of them sensed that there were high-grade spirit stones and there were quite a lot of them .

“There are a total of 17 berserk corpses and there might be peak-class berserk corpses . Xiong Dao and Li Fuchen will be at the front, Chu Wu will follow behind . If there are any high-class or peak-class berserk corpses, Chu Wu will deal with them . ” Lin Shou instructed .

Hearing the instructions, Chu Wu nodded .

Chu Wu agreed to form a team with Lin Shou because he knew that Lin Shou had pseudo-heaven class cardinal artifacts and Lin Shou’s strength wasn’t inferior to him at all . Only such teammates would guarantee that Chu Wu could enter deep into the Latent Shadow Abyss . It wasn’t his style to fight those trivial battles in the outer regions .

Therefore, he still had to listen to Lin Shou’s arrangements .

Under Lin Shou’s arrangements, Xiong Dao and Li Fuchen stood side by side and entered the cave first .


The berserk corpses roared out loudly before an intense battle started .

The six of them had rather good luck as there wasn’t any peak-class berserk corpse among the 17 berserk corpses . There was only one high-class berserk corpse .

This high-class berserk corpse was only able to withstand two blades from Chu Wu’s saber art .

After arriving at the end of the cave, everyone held their breaths .

On the walls of the cave, there were dozens of crystals with dazzling halos that were embedded .

These crystals were actually emitting the presence of the great dao .

High-grade spirit stones!

Only high-grade spirit stones would contain such intense halo and only high-grade spirit stones would contain the presence of the great dao .

Dozens of high-grade spirit stones would be equivalent to hundreds of thousands of mid-grade spirit stones .

It might not sound a lot but the crucial point was that high-grade spirit stones didn’t appear on the market . Those who wanted high-grade spirit stones would need to try their luck on the auction or to search for them in exploration sites .

“There should be more high-grade spirit stones than these . ” Lin Shou swung his hand and shot out a silver light .


The cave walls collapsed into dust and more high-grade spirit stones appeared .

After everyone tidied up the place, they realized there were a total of 101 high-grade spirit stones .

According to the distribution method, Lin Shou took 30% which meant 30 high-grade spirit stones . The rest of the 71 high-grade spirit stones, Chu Wu took a share of 25 pieces, Xiong Dao and Li Fuchen received 15 pieces each, while Qiao Yu and Leng Xue obtained 8 pieces each .  

“So these are high-grade spirit stones?” While holding onto a piece of high-grade spirit stone, Li Fuchen revealed traces of surprise .

The spirit qi within the high-grade spirit stone was like a torrential river that was surging with extreme violence, and they were extremely pure . There was basically no impurities and the most crucial part was the great dao presence in the high-grade spirit stones that were greatly beneficial to cultivation .

After obtaining the high-grade spirit stones, everyone prepared to leave the cave .

“Not good, we can’t exit . ” Qiao Yu’s face changed .

Outside the cave, it was unknown when a large group of berserk corpses had surrounded the place and blocked up the cave .

Chu Wu said in a heavy voice, “There is a black berserk corpse that is standing furthest away . He is controlling the berserk corpse herd . ”

“Controlling the berserk corpse herd?”

Lin Shou said with an agonized expression, “If he is really controlling the berserk corpse herd, then he is definitely a Berserk Corpse King . Only Berserk Corpse King will develop a trace of spirit wisdom . ”

Berserk corpses were actually walking corpses and didn’t have any spirit wisdom .

Berserk Corpse Kings were different as they developed spirit wisdom and was considered another kind of lifeform .
