Only, not even in his dreams would this man in black have thought that the enemy he was restraining his fear against had entered the cave at this moment. And that he was was already concealed behind his back and would launch a deadly attack at him at any moment.
Qin Wushuang approached closer. With his speculation, the strength of this person should also be at the Transformation Void Martial Stage. Or else, he would not have been able to control all those elite puppet martial artists.
Regarding the situation in the cave, Qin Wushuang had a clear understanding of it. He knew that this battle must not become messy. Once a messy situation occurred, the fight might not work to his favor.
Thus, he would pursue killing the enemy in one move.
To kill him in one move, he could only rely on the Graceful Spiritual Bow. Currently, only by using the Graceful Spiritual Bow would it ensure he killed the enemy instantly in this narrow cave.
However, Qin Wushuang also had other trump cards. One could almost say that ever since he had entered this cave, the terrain advantage held by the enemy had transferred to Qin Wushuang.
Earlier, before Qin Wushuang had entered this cave, that man in black had held the terrain advantage. Currently, to the man in black, this cave no longer possessed any advantages to him. on the contrary, this cave would become his restriction.
Only, that man in black had absolutely no knowledge of it.
Qin Wushuang slowly approached the cave entrance. After going around a few wriggly and indirect curves, Qin Wushuang could almost feel the gloomy lights coming from the cave opening.
Qin Wushuang knew that he must not go further. If he did, he would attract the attention of the other party. For this battle, his goal was to ensure the enemy was caught off guard.
When he thought here, Qin Wushuang stopped looking at a piece of armour hanging on the mountain wall across him. The piece of armour emitted a serene blue light and gave people an incredibly mysterious feeling.
Suddenly, Qin Wushuang had an idea. He waved his hand and extended the Fury Dragon Soul to lash over like a viper. The whip directly wrapped around that blue armour.
He lightly evoked the divine Qi and pulled it from the mountain wall. At the same time, the defense wall and the restriction exploded.
As soon as the restriction was broken, waves of "bubbling" explosive sounds evoked from the surrounding magnetic field.
When that armour dropped to the ground, Qin Wushuang did not take it and let it remain there. For himself, he hid in the darkness and fastened the Graceful Spiritual Bow in his hand. All three jade green arrows were placed onto the bow as he gravely awaited for the next moment.
Clearly, this explosion had startled that man in black. Stunned, with a body like a spiritual cat, that man in black jumped down from the mountain wall and scrambled at a rapid speed towards the interior.
As soon as he made the turn, he saw that piece of blue armour on the ground that emitted resplendent blue lights. Mellow and rich, serene yet hidden was the form of power emitted by this miraculous color that made this armour stand out from the masses.
Instantly, the eyes of the man in black glowed with greed. This armour made him feel a rush of excitement. Yet, this rush of excitement had only occurred in this instant.
This armour had been embedded on the mountain wall and sealed by restrictions. He had thought of countless methods and had been unable to take it down.
Now, it had suddenly dropped onto the floor of the passageway. Apparently, such change made the man in black feel abnormally surprised. His pupils shrank as he hesitated.
With a flash of green light before his eyes, a beam of lightning green slashed over. Dumbstruck, that man in black raised his black staff in an attempt to block it.
He could say that this was his only choice.
Since the mountain road was narrow, he could not go retreat to the left or right side. If he retreated backwards, his speed would not be faster than this green light flying at him.
Thus, he chose to block it and it was the most logical and only choice.
He raised his staff and a wave of black mist gushed out to form a misty barrier. It surged towards that green light.
The trace of a joyful smile appeared on the corner of Qin Wushuang's mouth.
He knew that the other party would certainly die.
The next two arrows followed closely behind. Together, these two arrows brought a tyrannical driving force and dispersed that black mist.
With a booming sound, the entire cave almost trembled. At the same time, that jade green arrows hit the body of that man in black and nailed him onto the mountain wall.
This time, regarding his arrow skills, Qin Wushuang did not utilize brute explosive power. Instead, he focused on penetration.
When those three waves of green lights shot into the body of the man in black, the strong force of impact did not allow him a moment to let out a grunt as he slumped toward the mountain wall in despair.
Regardless of the enemy's strength, it would be impossible for him to survive when getting hit by the Graceful Spiritual Bow. Naturally, without exception, this man in black fell back with a loud bang. His entire body had softened like a pile of mud as he took his last breath.
Giving a light yet relieved sigh, Qin Wushuang walked out from the darkness. He slowly approached that man in black. He did not move the body of that black-clothed man. Instead, he retrieved the three jade green arrows and put away the Graceful Spiritual Bow.
After he had finished all of these tasks, Qin Wushuang used the Fury Dragon Soul whip to wrap the body of that black clothed man and drag him into the cave.
From this black clothed man's appearance and figure, plus his seemingly sinister staff, Qin Wushuang speculated that this person should be the mastermind behind the venomous insects, and the owner of the puppet martial artists.
For such martial artist who specialized in using venomous insects, Qin Wushuang knew he must not lower his guard even if the enemy had died. It was because any tiny detail on this person's body may cost a person their life.
Qin Wushuang used the Fury Dragon Soul to tear apart this person's clothed. Indeed, the outer layer of his cloth was filled with traps. Besides different and strange talismans, there were grotesquely shaped venomous insects. Especially inside a black pot with three legs, similar venomous objects filled it.
Qin Wushuang only felt his scalp becoming numb. He spat a mouthful of saliva as he watched this black clothed man. Then, he glanced at his finger, he was wearing a storage ring.
By using the Fury Dragon Soul, Qin Wushuang removed his storage ring. Still being careful, Qin Wushuang did not use his hand to touch that ring. Yet, he made a few hand gestures in the air and opened the space of that ring.
Indeed, this black clothed man had an abundance of goods. Inside the ring, there were a variety of collections. Qin Wushuang went through it and did not pay too much attention to the crystal stones. At this moment, he did not lack such things.
Qin Wushuang was most drawn to a secret "Divine Venomous Secret Path" book.
He opened that "Divine Venomous Secret Path" and fell into a deep contemplation after quickly reading through it. Inside it, the first chapter talked about the opposition between the vital energy of the venomous technique.
This "Divine Venomous Secret Path" said that the venomous insect skill was only one of many divine skills. The reason for this skill appearing extremely mysterious was because of its' miraculous property and serenity. Thus, it was bestowed with a fantastic color. Through time, it was easy for people to pass it along as witchcraft.
This "Divine Venomous Secret Path" believed that for the worldly divine skills, when it fell into the hands of the evil people, even the most righteous skill would be considered witchcraft. And when the most evil divine skill fell to the hands of the righteous people, with some exploitation, it would become a righteous skill.
Such viewpoint had garnered Qin Wushuang's agreement.
Qin Wushuang had always believed that "There were no weak nor strong skills, and there were crucial difference between each stages".
This short summarization had instantly allowed Qin Wushuang to feel a strong resonance. He read it again for a moment and the different venomous insect skills were extremely mystical, for he was deeply fantasized by it.
Now, of course Qin Wushuang did not have the energy to examine it too closely. Without holding back, he threw this "Divine Venomous Secret Path" into his own storage ring.
As for the black clothed man's other venomous poisons and insects, along with some strange spiritual talisman, although Qin Wushuang did not have the need for it, he still took it all. He threw all of it into this black clothed man's storage ring and put the ring into his own storage ring.
After finishing all of this, Qin Wushuang gathered the body of that man in black. Then, he walked directly to the cave entrance and threw it down the ten thousand feet deep cliff.
This was the Fourth Circle of the Seven Deadly Formation Arrays and Qin Wushuang's territory. Of course, he would not allow a corpse to pollute his territory.
He went around the cave entrance a few times. After he was sure that no other threats remained, Qin Wushuang started to analyze the precise structure of this Fourth Circle.
Soon, Qin Wushuang had identified the core of the formation. Same as the previous core, this was also a giant stone and formed a transportation circle between the two destinations.
With his previous experiences, it was incredibly easy for Qin Wushuang to find the core of the formation. Next, he poured in his spiritual Qi.
Indeed, a wave of spiritual light surged and a voice appeared slowly. It was that previous ancient voice.
"Lucky one, finally you are at the Fourth Circle. This means that now, you are already an elite warrior at the Refined Void Martial Stage. Being a Refined Void Martial Stage warrior in the Xuan Yuan Mound, you are not the strongest existence. Thus, you must have some capital to make your way through the Xuan Yuan Mound. In this cave, I have also left you with a few treasures. These things are not enough for you to become invincible in the Xuan Yuan Mound, yet it will help you to accumulate capital and face the potential danger. Among them, one of it is an azure armour. This armour was made by a master. Although it cannot match up to a divine armament, this is the strongest level below the Divine Dao. And this armour could go through water, fire, all the five attributes, is extremely marvelous."
Qin Wushuang was deeply allured by it. To him, having such an armour was absolutely a great piece of news. With this armour on him, he would not have been in that embarrassing state at that Wild Flame Cliff. Even if he risked his life to get shot by Wu Lihu, he would not be worried about losing his life.
When he thought here, Qin Wushuang could not but help feel somewhat disconsolate. As he remembered Bao Bao and Lone's currently situation, and this azure armour, he felt deeply pained: "If I had entered this Fourth Circle sooner, at that Wild Flame Cliff, how could anything happen to Bao Bao and Lone?"
While he was lost in his thoughts, that voice spoke again: "The second piece of treasure is a piece of sealed painting scrolls. Do not underestimate this sealed painting scroll. There is a total of twelve sealed scrolls. Each scroll contains a puppet spiritual beast. Almost all of these spiritual beasts were captured from the Savage Land and refined into puppets. They are emotionless. Once you break the seal, they are pure battle tools. However, because these spiritual beasts were sealed, they could not train. Thus, after battle, the spiritual Qi spend cannot be refilled nor improved. Once their spiritual Qi has been used up, their battle power will disappear completely, and become useless…"
Twelve scrolls of sealed painting, hearing this, Qin Wushuang's heartbeat could not help but speed up.
