Qin Yun had yearned to see Dragon City for a long time. He wanted to quickly check out the sanctuary in the first region.
It was said that the strongest people from the first town had gathered together to guard this Dragon City.
"In the Dragon City, there are many hidden dragons and crouching tigers!" Elder Zhou said, "Although we are in the Martial Dao Realm, we still have to be very careful inside. Because in the Dragon City, there are many people who are stronger than us. Some of them even have unique skills!"
"Can anyone enter Dragon City?" Qin Yun asked, "They've painstakingly built this city, so they definitely have to charge a fee to keep the city safe."
"That's for sure. Normally, they would collect a single magic core of the eighth step whenever someone enter, in addition to collecting taxes." Old Tan said, "The Class 8 Magical Crystal is nothing to us."
Qin Yun had some Class 8 magic cores but he did not know how to use them.
"It's a pity that we couldn't get the carcass of the Dragon Lion!" Elder Zhou sighed, "There are treasures everywhere on the Dragon Lion's body. If it is given to Ah Yun to refine, that would be the best!"
Qin Yun said with a smile, "We should be satisfied that we have obtained the Dragon Lion's Crystal Egg! The situation at that time was so critical that it was impossible for us to do anything else."
He also felt that it was a pity but considering the circumstances, there really wasn't much time to collect the corpses of the lions.
Elder Zhou nodded with a smile, "Ah Yun, you sure are open-minded. I've been thinking about it all this time!"
"Once we reach the Dragon City, we have to try our best to hide our identities. It's best not to let anyone recognize us. We've obtained the magical beast eggs of the Draconic Lions. That's something that many people would yearn for." Old Tan reminded him.
When they were fighting against the group of Draconic Lions, many people were watching them from the sidelines. Among those people were many experts and most of them had been to Dragon City before.
If that group of people were to return to the Dragon City, they would definitely spread the news.
Because Old Tan had the Royal Spirit Cannon, his reputation was not small. Many people recognized him and he paid the most attention to hiding his identity.
After a few days of traveling, Qin Yun finally saw Dragon City.
The walls of Dragon City are a hundred meters tall and silver-white in color. They looked very sturdy. The city was huge and was said to hold a million people.
In the first town, most of the powerhouses who survived were currently in the Dragon City.
Old Tan walked in front and led Qin Yun and company to a small door.
If he wanted to pass through this door, he would have to crouch down to enter. This was to prevent magical beasts from entering.
Even if the gatekeeper was careless, larger magical beasts would find it difficult to pass through this door. If a small magical beast went in, it would be easy to deal with.
They took out the magic cores of the eighth step and handed them to the guards, entering the city without a hitch.
Inside the Dragon City, there were many iron buildings that were dozens of meters tall and 100 meters in height. Clearly, they were built to prevent hordes of beasts. If a magical beast attacked, it wouldn't be destroyed so quickly.
The moment Qin Yun entered, he was immediately stunned by the many magnificent steel buildings and giant iron palaces!
Although the Main Branch Hall of the Divine Inscription Palace was shocking, it still only had one of the grandest palaces. In the Dragon City, there were many palaces built with silver spirit iron.
"The first town really has a lot of resources!" Qin Yun could tell with a glance that many of the buildings here were protected by great formations, especially the great halls.
Old Tan said, "The first town is a place filled with talents. Because too many people died, many resources were gathered! The major powers in this place would often send over a thousand people to gather resources outside. Many of the houses outside were destroyed and many things were hidden in the storerooms and collected together."
A guild with over a thousand members and they were even a group of fugitives, they were definitely not afraid of anything!
"Then what's the currency here? Is that also a crystal coin?" Qin Yun asked.
"Crystal or Purple Crystal Coin! After all, maintaining the formation requires a large amount of crystal coins." Elder Zhou said, "Crystal Coins can buy a lot of things here, such as magical beast eggs. You can also buy them from here but they are very expensive, perhaps a few hundred million each."
Qin Yun did not have many crystal coins on him. Even if he wanted to buy them, he did not have that many crystal coins.
"Let's go find that witch doctor!" When they were outside the city, they began a simple disguise. Especially Old Tan, who disguised himself as a very old man.
Old Man Zhou said, "We won't be going then. We'll be taking a walk around and then move into the Heavenly Justice Inn. When the time comes, go there to find us."
Old Tan nodded and said to Qin Yun, "Ah Yun, the two of us will go. Follow me closely!"
After bidding farewell to Old Man Zhou and his sons, Qin Yun and Old Tan took a rather narrow street and headed towards the northern part of the city.
The narrow streets were bustling with noise and excitement. There were all kinds of magical beast bones, as well as all sorts of strange looking magic cores and all sorts of decorative magical beast skins. They all sold the items on the magical beasts.
"There are quite a few types of magical beasts!" Qin Yun could not help but exclaim.
Old Tan said, "Yes! In particular, in the first town, there were all sorts of magical beasts. Magical beasts had killed many humans and humans had also killed many magical beasts! However, the reproduction rate of magical beasts is very fast and the magical beasts that were born were all very strong. This is not something that humans can compare to."
"Master Tan, where is the witch doctor? How long will it take to see him? " Qin Yun asked. He had now changed the way he addressed Old Tan.
"Soon, he'll be hiding in this place. Because he needs a lot of materials for making all kinds of magic medicines." Old Tan smiled. "His name is Wu Xiang. He's quite famous here."
After walking for a while, Old Tan waved at Qin Yun as he drilled into an alley. He took a few turns in the alley and passed the doors of many houses. After a few rounds, he came to a house with a small yard.
The door was very special. It had a magical beast skull hanging from it but it was a pig's head with two long, pure white teeth.
"This Great Master Wu is really special!" Qin Yun looked at the pig's head and said with a smile.
Suddenly, the upper and lower jaws of the pig head moved and it could even speak. "Who is it?"
Qin Yun was alarmed!
"It's me, Tan!" Old Tan smiled and said, "I brought a little friend over. I mentioned it the last time, remember?"
The wild boar had empty eyes as two balls of green light appeared. They enveloped Qin Yun and Old Tan.
"Tan! Alright, you can push open the door and come in!" Old Tan hurriedly pushed the door open and told Qin Yun to quickly enter.
After Qin Yun entered, he saw two rows of skeleton people standing on both sides of the brick-paved path. It couldn't be said to be human because even though those skeletons were of humans, their four limbs were not and neither were their heads. All of them belonged to magical beasts.
It seemed to be made from human bones and animal bones.
"Don't get close, these bones are very strong!" Old Tan warned him in a low voice.
"I thought it was just a decoration!" Qin Yun was slightly alarmed but he did not dare to move recklessly.
They entered the hut and arrived at a large hall. They saw a skinny old man with a pigtail that reached into the sky.
The old man only reached Qin Yun's waist. His beard was very long and had touched the ground. His soaring braids were also very unique as they were twined with many colorful threads. It was unknown what they were.
This little old man was the Witch Doctor called Wu Xiang. Although he was short and thin, he looked very energetic. His smiling old eyes were bright and full of light.
This strange looking old man looked very polite as he said with a smile, "Take a seat, take a seat!"
Qin Yun and Old Tan immediately sat down. The chairs were made of animal bones. Many of the things in the hall were made of snow-white beast bones, giving people a strange feeling.
"Tan told me about you. You're still young but you're a beginner level inscription master. You can even craft a middle-grade Body Securing Talisman!" Witch looked at Qin Yun with interest.
"Elder Wu, I can now refine a top quality Body Securing Talisman!" As Qin Yun spoke, he took out the top-grade body securing bone talisman he had forged and handed it to Wu Xiang. He said with a smile, "This is my greeting gift to Elder Wu!"
Wu Xiang was startled. He hurriedly took the bone talisman and placed it in front of his eyes, almost touching it.
"Level 5 Exquisite, did you really make this?" Wu Xiang asked in surprise, frightened by this degree of finesse.
"Yeah!" Qin Yun was also secretly surprised. To think that the Witch Doctor could directly see the level of detail. It was obvious that he had done a certain amount of research on the strange engravings as well.
"Can you make one for me?" Wu Xiang said: "I know. You came to find me because you wanted my help to step into the Martial Dao realm. No problem. You can rest assured!"
When Qin Yun heard this, he felt relieved. He nodded with a smile and said, "Alright, I'll make one now!"
"Tan, if you feel bored, you can go out for a walk! Don't worry, I won't eat this kid!" Qin Yun felt goosebumps upon hearing Wu Xiang's words.
Old Tan chuckled dryly. "Alright, I'll let Ah Yun stay here. I'll come back later."
Wu Xiang went to send Old Tan out. However, the moment he returned, he saw Qin Yun take out a workbench and a finished bone board. He was prepared to inscribe spirit inscriptions.
"I'm going to start now!" Qin Yun took out the Mental Resonance Xuan Pen. Just as he was about to inscribe the spirit mark, he heard a strange cry.
"AAAHHHH!! It's the inscription spirit, the Beast King!" Wu Xiang was so shocked that his eyes turned round. His face was filled with disbelief as he pointed at the Xuan Pen.
Qin Yun was alarmed as well. The beast king had been his greatest secret but now, it had been seen through.
"Elder Wu, you can't openly talk about this!" Qin Yun said with concern.
"Don't worry. Even if I kill you, I won't be able to use the beast king's spirit!" Wu Xiang took a few deep breaths and sighed.
In this way, Qin Yun felt a lot more at ease. He said, "It is because I obtained this pen that my accuracy improved. Originally, I was only between third or fourth level."
"That's good enough!" Wu Xiang said, "You don't need to produce it, I believe you can achieve such precision! I will concoct the medicine for you next but you must promise me to refine two talismans for me!"
