The old monk said, “Of course, it will be best if you can get a connate Dharmic weapon as a Destiny Dharmic Weapon. However, perfect or supreme-grade Dharmic weapons are also acceptable.”
Su Zimo nodded.
Of course, connate Dharmic weapons were way too rare and could only be chanced upon.
The old monk continued, “Other than its rich spirit qi, the intermediate ancient battlefield also contains two spirit herbs that have gone extinct in Tianhuang Mainland, the Spirit Gathering Fruit and Soul Nourishing Blood Ginseng.”
“Golden Cores face extreme danger while attempting a breakthrough to the Nascent Soul realm. There’s the risk of crippling their cultivation or even dying on the spot without any corpse remaining! The Spirit Gathering Fruit is meant to help Golden Cores gather their Essence Spirit while attempting the breakthrough.”
“Only one Spirit Gathering Fruit is required and it’s useless to consume more than that.”
“After advancing to Nascent Soul realm, cultivators will be able to enhance their cultivation speed by consuming the Soul Nourishing Blood Ginseng to nourish their Essence Spirit and strengthen it. It’s a rare spirit material! Naturally, for the Soul Nourishing Blood Ginseng, the more the better.”
Su Zimo had a rough understanding.
Apart from countless opportunities, the intermediate ancient battlefield also had an unimaginable amount of cultivation resources.
If he could obtain sufficient benefits from within, his cultivation path in the future would be much smoother!
“Of course, there’s also countless threats in the intermediate ancient battlefield. It’s 10 times more dangerous than everything you’ve experienced in the elementary ancient battlefield!”
The old monk said sternly, “You’ve made too many enemies so you must be extremely careful. Additionally, demons of Tianhuang Mainland will also be in the intermediate ancient battlefield.”
Su Zimo froze for a moment.
The old monk nodded. “After forming their cores, demons will also go on to form their Essence Spirits. Therefore, they will also enter to fight with you guys for the Soul Nourishing Blood Ginseng and Spirit Gathering Fruits.”
At that point, Su Zimo came to a realization.
The Yin Spirit section came after the Core Formation section in the Mystic Classic of the Twelve Demon Kings of the Great Wilderness.
In reality, Yin Spirit and the Essence Spirit of Nascent Souls were similar.
After cultivating their Yin Spirits, demons become fiend demons and can take on human form and speak in human tongue. In fact, they can even hide their demonic qi such that cultivators won’t be able to tell them apart!
After cultivating Yin Spirit, demons were able to control Dharmic powers as well.
Once released, they would become the legendary demonic techniques.
The old monk said, “Ordinary demons are of no threat to you. However, there are vast lands in Tianhuang Mainland where the eight major demon races reside known as the eight demon regions!”
“In those eight regions, there are countless frightening birds and beasts that only stand out after going through endless bloodshed and possessing extraordinary bloodlines. You must be careful.”
“I’ll remember them all to heart,”
Su Zimo nodded.
“There’s nothing else.”
The old monk walked down the stone steps and glared at the void before him. Suddenly, his eyes lit up and he extended his withered palm, slapping the void gently.
A resounding boom exploded in the void.
Right in front of Su Zimo and Ming Zhen, the void shattered and caved in, turning into a pitch-black vortex!
The vortex connected to an unknown place that gave off an ancient aura.
The old monk turned to Su Zimo. “You’re planning to leave the North Region this time round?”
Su Zimo did not choose to hide the truth.
With the passing of his eldest brother, he no longer had any attachments to the mortal world.
Most of his attachments were now with Xiaoning.
Furthermore, there was no place left for him in the North Region.
If he continued staying here, more people would be implicated!
The reason why Su Zimo did not even return to Ethereal Peak when he reappeared was because he did not want the latter to be burdened because of him.
The old monk had a benevolent gaze and said warmly, “There’s only one thing you need to remember after leaving the North Region. If you truly encounter any danger and have nowhere left to run, use the Major Transference Talisman and return here!”
“As long as I’m alive, I’ll definitely be able to guarantee your safety!”
Su Zimo pursed his lips in silence and bowed deeply to the old monk.
The old monk waved his hand.
Su Zimo and Ming Zhen exchanged glances and did not hesitate, leaping into the vortex in the void along with the little fox.
Su Zimo felt the world spin.
In the blink of an eye, it seemed as though his body and soul had separated out of his control!
His surroundings were pitch-black and he could not see anything.
All his senses had vanished.
Even his spirit perception felt hazy.
The two of them seemed to be traveling through a dark tunnel. Initially, Su Zimo could still rely on his spirit perception to sense the presence of Ming Zhen and the little fox.
However, not long later, Su Zimo discovered that Ming Zhen and the little fox had vanished from his spirit perception!
A spot of light appeared before him, enlarging and turning clearer!
His consciousness returned.
His body and soul seemed to have recombined.
Su Zimo burst out of the light spot and his body descended rapidly.
It was a brand new world.
Spirit qi was multiple times richer than it was outside.
Su Zimo knew that he had already entered the intermediate ancient battlefield!
Releasing his spirit perception, Su Zimo put on his guard and surveyed his vicinity.
It was vast and empty!
Ming Zhen and the little fox had already vanished.
Su Zimo furrowed his brows slightly.
He realized that something had gone off course in the teleportation process and they were separated.
A slight deviation in the teleportation could send them hundreds of kilometers apart.
Su Zimo was not worried about Ming Zhen.
After Di Yin left the old temple, Ming Zhen spent 10 years in the Great Qian Ruins, fighting with the otherworldly soldier and undergoing countless brushes with death.
Ming Zhen’s combat experience had already grown by a lot.
Furthermore, he was not weak to begin with and he had even cultivated the World Cleansing Green Lotus which was previously ranked top ten in the Phenomenon Ranking.
The little fox was whom Su Zimo was truly worried about.
Trying to find a fox in this vast world was akin to searching for a needle in a haystack.
Taking a deep breath of air, Su Zimo made a rough gauge of direction before heading towards the center of the ancient battlefield.
The spirit qi here was way too rich and spirit herbs and materials could be found everywhere.
There were some places where lakes were even conjured out of spirit qi.
If everything went smoothly, Su Zimo would definitely be able to reach perfected Golden Core a year later!
Even though his surroundings were filled with lush greenery along the way, he did not encounter any cultivator.
Not long after.
Su Zimo sensed something.
In the nearby grass that was taller than a human’s height, a demon beast sprawled and glared at him with green, frightening eyes!
Su Zimo was not bothered and continued advancing.
When he passed by the demon beast, the grass moved and the demon beast leaped into the air, lunging towards Su Zimo with a berserk killing intent!
A deafening roar sounded from the depths of the demon beast’s throat.
If it was any other cultivator, they would be shocked into a daze by that sudden attack and roar, thereby perishing under the claws of the demon beast.
However, Su Zimo cultivated the Mystic Classic of the Twelve Demon Kings of the Great Wilderness and was the greatest demon!
That roar had no effect on him at all!
Turning slightly, he looked at the incoming demon beast and suddenly spoke with a fake smile, “Om!”
The incoming demon beast froze in midair with a stumped expression – it was completely shocked!
