In truth, Su Zimo was already tempted the moment he heard about the Elixir Pool Sect ruins.
It wasn’t purely because of Xiaoning; he had his own needs as well.
The Meridian Unlocking Elixir.
More than that, it was for a perfect-grade Meridian Unlocking Elixir!
After hearing Tang Yu’s introduction of Elixir Pool Sect, Su Zimo was even more certain that they would most likely find perfect-grade Meridian Unlocking Elixirs in the Elixir Pool Sect.
Tang Yu said, “Of course, for a sect as large as Elixir Pool Sect, there will definitely be many other treasures. In fact, we might even find gems like connate spirit weapons.”
Su Zimo pondered for a moment. “I’ll do my best to help Elixir Yang Sect get the ruins. Furthermore, I won’t want anything else. However, I ask for a perfect-grade Meridian Unlocking Elixir!”
Yan Jun could not help but burst into laughter as he looked at Su Zimo with a mocking gaze. “Perfect Meridian Unlocking Elixir. What a daring demand! Who do you think you are, huh?”
“Who are you?” Su Zimo glared at him.
Proudly, Yan Jun declared, “I’m Yan Jun, a cultivator of Elixir Yang Sect’s Battle Hall at seven meridian Foundation Establishment!”
“Also, don’t think that you have the right to negotiate terms with Elixir Yang Sect just because you’ve killed two seven meridian Foundation Establishment Cultivators. Su Zimo, let me tell you, without us, you won’t even be able to get close to the main hall of Elixir Pool Sect!”
Tang Yu glared at him and said sternly.
Harrumphing, Yan Jun did not continue, merely crossing his arms and scoffing coldly.
Tang Yu turned to Su Zimo apologetically. “Fellow Daoist Su, it’s not that we can’t agree to a perfect Meridian Unlocking Elixir, but…”
“But?” Su Zimo asked.
Tang Yu continued, “Elixir Yang Sect is not the only faction that has arrived in Xuantian City for the Elixir Pool Sect ruins. There’s also other large sects such as Glass Palace and Malevolent Earth Sect. As for the Meridian Unlocking Elixir, it’s better if we don’t find a gem like that. If we do, the top cultivators of the other sects are bound to come and contest for it!”
In other words, Tang Yu meant that they would have to face many extremely strong foes if Su Zimo wanted to contest for a perfect Meridian Unlocking Elixir!
After pondering for a slight moment, Tang Yu added, “I’ll be blunt here, I’m talking about people like Pei Chunyu of Glass Palace and Xue Yang of Malevolent Earth Sect. For these people, other than connate spirit weapons, other treasures and secret skills aren’t worth bothering about.”
“They are most likely here for the perfect Meridian Unlocking Elixirs as well!”
The higher the grade of the Meridian Unlocking Elixir, the greater the chances of one unlocking their spirit meridians.
Pei Chunyu and Xue Yang were already at the peak of seven meridian Foundation Establishment. The best chance for them to unlock their eighth spirit meridians would be to consume perfect Meridian Unlocking Elixirs!
This was an opportunity they wouldn’t miss.
At the thought of Xue Yang and Pei Chunyu, Su Zimo frowned.
He had exchanged blows with Pei Chunyu before. Although it was only a single blow, he could still sense how terrifying his opponent was.
To be fair, if he had not made use of the blood bone palm, there was a high chance that his arm would have been crippled by Pei Chunyu back then!
Tang Yu said, “Even though you killed two seven meridian Foundation Establishment Cultivators, you have to understand that there’s a distinction in strength between seven meridian Foundation Establishment Cultivators as well. Take me for example, I’m at seven meridian Foundation Establishment as well, but I’m an Elixir Refinement Master. Five of me won’t be a match for people like Chai Li and Hu Meng.”
“However, even 10 seven meridian Foundation Establishment Cultivators the likes of Chai Li and Hu Meng wouldn’t be a match for Pei Chunyu or Xue Yang. That’s the difference we’re talking about!”
Su Zimo remained silent.
He knew that Tang Yu was not wrong – his chances of winning the two of them without the use of his demon form wasn’t great.
Uncle Liang remarked as well, “The immortal and fiend sects have a heritage of countless years and they have too many cultivation techniques and secret skills, each of which are extremely strong and can suppress everything.”
“Your advantage is in melee combat. Unfortunately, the successor of Glass Palace is also skilled in melee combat and has a physique so strong that only a few of the other sects’ successors can match him!”
Tang Yu added, “You took advantage of the situation by making use of thunder to kill Chai Li and Hu Meng. There’s an element of luck involved. However, can you guarantee that the skies will be stormy when you go against Pei Chunyu and Xue Yang?”
“In other words, even if you manage to repeat that slash infused with the power of thunder, Pei Chunyu and Xue Yang might be able to deal with it given their strength.”
Yan Jun could not help but blurt, “Junior sister, you’re overestimating him. He’s not even a match for the legacy disciples of Thousand Crane Sect and Puppet Sect, let alone paragons like Pei Chunyu and Xue Yang. Outsiders aside, even I can smash him to a pulp with ease!”
To Yan Jun, the reason why Su Zimo was able to kill Chai Li and Hu Meng 10 days ago was purely due to an opportunistic moment.
If the skies were sunny, he would be able to kill Su Zimo for sure!
Su Zimo could not be bothered to react to Yan Jun’s sarcastic remarks.
To him, it wasn’t difficult if he wanted to defeat Pei Chunyu and Xue Yang.
After all, he had only just advanced to five meridian Foundation Establishment and of the seven orifices, his mouth and eye orifices were not cleared yet.
Both Pei Chunyu and Xue Yang were already at the peak of seven meridian Foundation Establishment and it was difficult for them to grow stronger.
However, his potential was unlimited!
As long as he had sufficient time, Su Zimo would definitely be able to suppress Pei Chunyu and Xue Yang in terms of strength if he could advance to six, seven meridian Foundation Establishment or clear his seven orifices and attain lesser mastery of the Orifice Clearing section!
Su Zimo asked, “How long do we have till the opening of the Elixir Pool Sect ruins?”
“A month at most!” Tang Yu replied.
Su Zimo furrowed his brows slightly.
Time was too short.
He had just advanced to five meridian Foundation Establishment. Even in the ancient battlefield, he would not be able to unlock his sixth spirit meridian within a month.
Furthermore, he couldn’t clear his mouth and eye orifices within a month as well.
Right then, Uncle Liang seemed to have recalled something. He looked at Su Zimo and suddenly said, “Actually, there’s a place in the ancient battlefield that’s rather suitable for you. If you manage to succeed, you might be able to stand a chance against Pei Chunyu and Xue Yang.”
Tang Yu’s heart skipped a beat as she looked at Uncle Liang and asked, “Uncle Liang, are you referring to… that place?”
Uncle Liang nodded and smiled right away. “Forget it, there’s no chance of success at all. I was thinking too much.”
Tang Yu nodded as well. “If we’re talking about that place, the chances are indeed… slim. There’s no need for that.”
Su Zimo was curious as well when he heard how ambiguous the two of them were and could not help but ask, “Senior, Young Master Tang, what is the place you are referring to?”
Tang Yu did not intend to hide anything and asked instead, “Fellow Daoist, have you heard of the Saber Mountain Spirit Sea?”
“Saber Mountain Spirit Sea?”
Su Zimo frowned, shaking his head.
Ji Chengtian and the others were confused as well. It was obvious that they knew nothing about that name.
Yan Jun sneered, “Truly bumpkin cultivators. To think that they’ve never even heard of the Saber Mountain Spirit Sea, how laughable!”
