Chapter 1021 - Horn and Lightning Heart
After purchasing the three crystal balls, Mu Chen did not intend to open them up right away, in case of the treasure that appeared when they open it attracted attention. Although he wasn’t afraid, being in trouble was truly troublesome.
Furthermore, he did not want to let the skinny man know that he had a special means to open the seal. This was just in case the latter had other thoughts when an unforeseen event occurs.
Therefore, he had immediately stored the three crystal balls. Motioning to Han Shan and Nine Nether, they swiftly left under the regretful gaze of the skinny man.
“We’ve almost finished buying the materials we need… There are still two days worth of travelling left until we reach the Myriad Beast Graveyard. The night is coming, I recommend that we rest here for a day and continue tomorrow.” The two parties had converged together as Han Shan suggested.
Mu Chen had no objection towards this, since he also needed a safe place to unseal the three crystal balls. Although the free market was filled with people, it’s still better than the wilderness.
When Han Shan saw that no one had any objections, they headed towards the west of the free market. There were stone pagodas here with some already occupied. They were obviously for the experts to rest.
Mu Chen and the rest searched for an empty pagoda and rested within. Everyone closed their eyes to cultivate, while Mu Chen sat down in a corner and waved his hand. The three crystal balls then floated before him.
The three crystal balls were covered with faint runes that were within each light ball. Those runes should be the seals.
In another corner, Nine Nether, Mo Feng and Mo Ling looked at the three crystal balls with interest, since they wished to know what items Mu Chen would obtain from those three crystals.
In the stone pagoda, sensing Mu Chen’s movements, Han Shan had also looked over with curiosity. He knew that Mu Chen had opened one with a Phoenix Fire Essence, thus causing the attention of Chi Hongwu. He was also in envy regarding this, since the price of a Phoenix Fire Essence far exceeded 500,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid.
Mu Chen did not mind their gazes and held onto one of the crystals. When the cold crystal fell in his hand, he saw that the surface of the crystal had clear crimson runes and the fluctuation it emitted was the same as before. Evidently, it was also drawn with the runes of a Super Divine Beast.
Mu Chen briefly pondered, then worked from the inside again. He set up a small exquisite Spiritual Array before pouring the power of the True Dragon and Phoenix Spirit within, corroding the perfect seal so that he could find a loophole.
Mu Chen closed his eyes for a brief moment, before suddenly opening them and felt the seal on the surface of the crystal starting to show loopholes.
He no longer hesitated and abruptly clenched his fist, immediately controlling the Spiritual Energy that had entered it. At that moment when the Spiritual Energy exploded, the crystal had also shattered and sparkles of light dispersed.
When the light dissipated, everyone immediately directed their gazes over and saw a dark purple light gathering in Mu Chen’s palm. The dark purple light swiftly expanded and had turned into slim dark-purple battle armour.
The armour was engraved with ancient runes with various shallows and depths, emitting a profound fluctuation. Vaguely, it quietly emitted an astonishing fluctuation.
The entire body armour was slim and slender with an ‘s’ shape. Evidently, it was meant for females.
Mu Chen was also somewhat astonished as he looked at this dark-purple battle armour. After pouring Spiritual Energy into it, a powerful Spiritual Energy fluctuation exploded from it and formed into layers of defence around the armour.
Mu Chen clenched his fist and heavily punched the armour. Instantly, the layers of defence constantly crumbled; but at the same time, the energy in Mu Chen’s fist was also being swiftly exhausted. When his fist touched the armour, it was only a shallow fist mark, which had swiftly disappeared.
“What a powerful defence!”
When Mu Chen saw this scene, he instantly contracted his eyes. His fist might seem gentle, but he used a strength that would make even Sixth Grade Sovereigns heavily injured. But right now, the battle armour had completely defended against his attack.
“What a good treasure; furthermore, it can amplify Spiritual Energy…”
Mu Chen couldn’t help sighing. Not only did this battle armour possesses powerful defensive capabilities, it can also even amplify Spiritual Energy to increase the fighting strength.
Just these two points alone made this armour comparable to a Peerless Divine Artifact. Furthermore, it must definitely be amongst the outstanding ones. The price of it far exceeded 500,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid as well.
When Han Shan saw this, his eyes couldn’t help lighting up.
Mu Chen smiled, then flicked his finger shortly after. The battle armour flew towards Nine Nether. Since this armour was meant to females, to begin with, if Nine Nether possessed this armour, then her fighting strength would have a great increment.
Looking at the battle armour flying in her direction, Nine Nether was briefly stunned before she smiled. She did not refuse and summoned it towards herself with a wave of her hand, before it floated in front of her. She slightly opened her rosy lips and Spiritual Energy gushed out, swiftly refining the battle armour before it was pulled into her body.
After giving the armour over to Nine Nether, Mu Chen looked at the two other crystal balls. In the end, the outcome was as expected, the ancient seals were successfully dealt with by Mu Chen.
After the seals were dealt with, the treasures in the crystals appeared, which attracted everyone’s attention.
There were two treasures and one of them was a black horn. It was curved like a bow filled with mottled traces. Vaguely, there was also an astonishing ominous aura emitting from it.
When Mu Chen looked at this black horn, he was stunned as he realised that it was somewhat similar to the horn that appeared when Han Shan’s group changed themselves.
Thus, he looked at Han Shan and saw that the experts of the Demonic Rhino Clan were looking at him with reddened eyes… at the black horn in his hand.
“This is the horn of your Demonic Rhino Clan?” Mu Chen was somewhat astonished as he asked.
Han Shan’s gaze was fixed on the black horn as his breathing turned heavy, “It should belong to an ancestor of the Demonic Rhino Clan. The horn of my clan is the strongest weapon with a unique ominous aura in it. It’s extremely beneficial to the cultivation technique of my clan. Although this horn has been corroded from the countless flows of time, if we bring it around with us, it will accelerate the cultivation technique that we practice.”
Mu Chen then understood why the eyes of those few from the Demonic Rhino Clan had their eyes turning red. This was a cultivation treasure for the Demonic Rhino Clan, so there wasn’t much use of it for Mu Chen’s group. After all, not everyone required such an ominous aura.
Han Shan’s breathing gradually calmed down and he awkwardly looked at Mu Chen. “I wonder if you can sell it to us?”
Mu Chen looked at Nine Nether and Mo Feng. Both of them had shrugged their shoulders. This item was a treasure for the Demonic Rhino Clan, but it’s useless to them. So if Han Shan could offer a suitable price, there’s no harm in selling it.
Seeing their response, Mu Chen smiled and tossed the black horn over to Han Shan. “Since that’s the case, then Brother Han, you can give how much you deem fits.”
He did not give it away for free as Han Shan was incomparable to his relationship with Nine Nether and Mo Feng. If he gave it away without asking for a price, it would be a little too improper, since the distribution of their harvest would have differences.
Han Shan carefully received the horn and examined it like a precious treasure, before showing a deep expression. He turned around and discussed with the few companions behind him, before tossing a jade bottle over to Mu Chen.
“Brother Mu, this horn is useless to others but is a priceless treasure for us. If it’s placed in the auction house of the Great Thousand Wold, the price of it would probably exceed 2,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid.”
Han Shan was a little embarrassed as he continued, “But we only have 2,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid with us, all contained in this bottle. After mentioning it, we’re the ones that benefited from this instead…”
“2,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid?”
Mu Chen couldn’t help being stunned by this and inwardly smacked his lips. He initially thought that if this item could be sold for 1,000,000 Sovereign Spiritual Liquids, it would be good enough already. But he had still underestimated the importance that the Demonic Rhino Clan had placed on it.
2,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid, to make up for all his purchases of the crystal balls.
“Then 2,000,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid will do.”
Mu Chen received the jade bottle as he casually smiled. Since he could sell it for such price, then there’s no need for him to haggle anymore. After all, the two parties still need to cooperate together.
Han Shan gratefully nodded his head and the experts of the Demonic Rhino Clan had also cast gazes of goodwill over. Evidently, they had a greater favourable opinion of Mu Chen.
After Mu Chen saw Han Shan’s party preciously stroking the horn, he no longer bothered himself with them and looked at the last object…
This object was silver in colour, roughly the size of a fist with a crude appearance. It looked like a heart and the violent rumbling thunder could be vaguely heard from it.
Mu Chen stared at this item and his gaze gradually turned grave. That’s because he could sense that this item seemed to contain extremely terrifying and violent energy. If the energy exploded, it wasn’t something that even he could endure.
“What is that?”
Mu Chen looked at Nine Nether and the rest with a doubtful gaze. Clearly, he couldn’t determine what this item was.
Nine Nether and Mo Feng furrowed their brows as they pondered about it. But after a long while, Han Shan, who had shifted his gaze away from the horn with great difficulties, looked at the silver heart with astonishment. He briefly pondered before saying, “If I have guessed correctly, this item should be a Lightning-Devouring Beast’s Heart. It’s is that’s rare even in ancient times…”
Hearing his words, Mu Chen’s eyes suddenly contracted with a flash of light in his eyes.
“The Lightning-Devouring Beast’s Heart?”
