A few more cultivators sped over from the direction of the valley, each of them panting with lingering shock.
Glass Palace and Malevolent Earth Sect were among them.
However, those two major sects had it even worse.
Apart from Pei Chunyu, Glass Palace only had eight people left and each of them were filled with injuries and had pale expressions.
It was the same for Malevolent Earth Sect.
In reality, if Night Spirit had not killed the other four pure-blooded ferocious beasts, it would have been difficult for the others to survive.
The only way out for them would be for a Sealer to kill the pure-blooded ferocious beasts by invoking their powers as Golden Cores!
This time round, Su Zimo finally caught sight of the Sealers of the two major sects.
An elderly man in golden robes stood behind Pei Chunyu. Although his hair was gray, his gaze was burning with dominance and his skin possessed a sparkling luster similar to a baby.
On the side of Malevolent Earth Sect, a skinny old man in black robes followed closely behind Xue Yang with a dark gaze resembling a ghoul.
The two Sealers had appeared!
Among the major factions, not all the super sects would send Sealers out with their teams. For example, Poison Sect, Puppet Sect and Tomb Sect of the four unorthodox groups did not send Sealers.
Pei Chunyu and the others arrived at the vicinity of the Elixir Refinement Hall and revealed shocked expressions when they swept their gazes across.
More than four hundred Elixir Yang Sect disciples had survived and made it here!
Although Glass Palace and Malevolent Earth Sect coveted the treasures within the Elixir Refinement Hall as well, they did not dare to force things given the number of people that Elixir Yang Sect had.
After a slight delay, Glass Palace, Malevolent Earth Sect and some other itinerant cultivators headed into the depths of the ruins.
Su Zimo gazed at the cultivators of the sects leaving thoughtfully.
A moment later, he patted Night Spirit on the head and whispered, “Stay here and guard Xiaoning. I’ll check out the depths of the ruins.”
“Are you really going to fight for the Meridian Unlocking Elixir?”
Tang Yu frowned when she noticed Su Zimo’s intention of heading into the ruins. “Xiaoning’s receiving the inheritance here and in order to prevent any accidents, we can’t leave. If you head in alone, you don’t stand a chance against all the elites of those major sects.”
“I must get my hands on the perfect Meridian Unlocking Elixir.”
Su Zimo replied with conviction and a resolute gaze.
Initially, he wanted to head into the depths of the ruins with everyone after Xiaoning received the inheritance.
However, by the looks of things now, Xiaoning wouldn’t be able to complete the inheritance process within a short period of time. Yet, Glass Palace, Malevolent Earth Sect and other sects have already ventured into the depths of the ruins – Su Zimo could not wait any longer.
“You have to be careful. They have Sealers with them. Don’t force yourself if the situation doesn’t look good.”
Tang Yu said, “I reckon that Xiaoning will definitely inherit the recipe for the Meridian Unlocking Elixir as well. If you don’t rush things, you’ll definitely get your chance to consume a perfect Meridian Unlocking Elixir in the future.”
Su Zimo nodded and in a flash, a pair of spirit wings appeared behind him. He soared into the air and sped into the depths of the ruins.
Su Zimo had no idea where the Meridian Unlocking Elixirs were located within Elixir Pool Sect as well.
At that moment, he looked down with the help of the Ethereal Wings and relied on his shocking eyesight to survey the place continuously while his ears twitched intently to pick up news from the surroundings.
“East side, hurry! The elixir storage is there!”
“Ah! Hurry over!”
Vaguely, Su Zimo caught wind of some intermittent conversations.
Standing in the air, he looked towards the east and saw a series of spirit lights shooting into the air from a certain area with many cultivators heading over.
“There’s no mistake.”
In a flash, Su Zimo vanished from where he was.
East of the Elixir Pool Sect ruins.
From above, it could be seen that there were gigantic jade bottles made from rocks lying on the ground, resembling cave abodes.
The bottlenecks were the entrances of the caves where words were written. Although they were blurred, they were still recognizable.
Grade 1, Grade 2, Grade 3…
It was very obvious.
The Grade 1 cave abodes would naturally contain Grade 1 elixirs.
Grade 2 cave abodes would contain Grade 2 elixirs.
Grade 3 cave abodes…
There were a total of eight jade bottle-like cave abodes here!
In other words, there was a chance that the eighth jade bottle-like cave abode would contain Grade 8 elixirs!
Elixirs that were consumed by Golden Cores were only at Grade 3.
As such, what sort of cultivators were the elixirs meant for?
Of course, despite knowing that, the many cultivators that were gathered outside the cave abodes could watch helplessly.
That was because all the entrances had seals on them.
Even after countless years, the seals were still perfectly preserved.
None of the cultivators in the ancient battlefield could dispel the seal of the Grade 3 elixir cave, let alone the Grade 8 elixir caves.
At that moment, everyone’s gazes were fixed on the Grade 2 elixir cave abode.
That was because the Meridian Unlocking Elixir was a Grade 2 elixir!
“Everyone, no matter what, we have to first dispel the seal of the entrance.”
After a moment, Pei Chunyu stood out and declared loudly, “The sooner we dispel the seal, the sooner we can enter the cave abode and obtain the elixirs that we need. If we waste too much time here, more cultivators will arrive and we’ll all get less elixirs.”
“That’s right, let’s join forces to dispel the seal first.”
“I agree. As for the elixirs inside, everyone can fight for it after we enter the cave abode.”
The cultivators agreed.
“Bang!” Boom! “Bang!”
Under Pei Chunyu’s command, many cultivators summoned their flying swords at the same time, striking repeatedly at the entrance of the Grade 2 elixir cave.
A series of lights appeared and shimmered continuously at the entrance, radiating brightly.
As time passed by, the light gradually dimmed.
“The seal’s about to be dispelled! Everyone, let’s work harder!”
Some cultivators yelled excitedly.
The Sealers of Glass Palace and Malevolent Earth Sect did not do anything, merely watching coldly from the sidelines.
Although Sealers would not be devoured by the dimension if they did not use their powers as Golden Cores, they were already old and their bodies were failing. As such, they would not do anything casually.
At their age, each time they did something, it would be equivalent to shaving off the last bits of their life’s essence.
It was similar to old mortals in their nineties. If they took care of their bodies, they could still live a couple years more. However, if they did anything overly vigorous, they would die before long.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Yet another series of explosions occurred and cracking sounds echoed from the entrance.
A moment later, the light barrier shattered!
The eyes of the cultivators lit up as they rushed forward at the same time, swarming towards the entrance.
Although the cave abode was sealed for countless years, there was no rotten smell within it. Instead, it was filled with an invigorating medicinal scent!
The masses charged forward and before long, their vision opened up in the depths of the cave.
A gigantic spirit pool resided at the end of the cave abode.
Many jade bottles were floating on it, looking dense and compacted.
Each of those jade bottles contained elixirs.
The reason why the elixirs were not rotten after thousands of years was because they were nourished by the spirit liquid.
This was a true Elixir Pool!
