In the face of the spiteful eyes of Emperor Jiang and the Ancestors of Sorcerer Minghe laughed and said, "Fellow Taoist Emperor Jiang, I don't fear to come here because I am sure I will never lose. What's more, the Ancestors of Sorcerer are still injured, so the Twelve Divine Beings Killing Formation can't exert its full power."
Minghe pointed out the weakness of the Ancestors of Sorcerer, but there was nothing that they could do. The Hong Meng Immortal Qi was in front of their eyes, while they were frightened to fight for it. Although there were twelve people in their group, the full power of the Twelve Divine Beings Killing Formation could still not be reached. In the face of Minghe, they were not sure if they could win. Even if they won, the Twelve Ancestors of Sorcerer would get badly injured. After all, the fightback of a Sage-to-be who was at the Peak Level was not a joke.
Torch Dragon came forward and asked, "Minghe, Fellow Taoist, I am Ancestor of Sorcerer Torch Dragon. I wonder the reason why you Fellow Taoist come to our holy land of the Wu Tribe. Since you have the Hong Meng Immortal Qi, you should work hard to enlighten it in the Blood Sea. Why should you come here at this time?"
Minghe took a glimpse at Torch Dragon and said, "Sure, I am here for business. You want me to finish my words outside?" Minghe tried to keep his journey low-key, so it would be troublesome once his presence was spotted by the Demon Tribe or others.
Seeing this, Emperor Jiang said, "Well, please get in." The Twelve Ancestors of Sorcerer guided Minghe into the Hall of Pangu, which looked plain but full of spiritual atmosphere. It really deserved to be the holy land of the Wu Tribe. The reason why they cherished this holy palace might be that this palace was inherited from Pangu.
Upon entering, Minghe felt a special pressure, not detrimental to him, but not the same as others. The pressure here was much stronger than that of Mount Buzhou, which indicated that there was something left by Pangu for the Wu Tribe. Considering that this was a secret of the Wu Tribe, Minghe was not going to dig into it.
Inside the palace stood twelve stone benches, the seats for the Twelve Ancestors of Sorcerer. Minghe waved his hands, calling a seat. Seated on the bench, Minghe said to the Twelve Ancestors of Sorcerer with diverse facial expressions, "Please do not worry too much. I am here to make a trade with you guys."
The Twelve Ancestors of Sorcerer were astonished by his words since they had no relationship with Minghe before, to say nothing of friendship. What would Minghe want to gain from them and what would he exchange for? The Wu Tribe was dominant in Untainted Land, so they would not desire anything common.
Emperor Jiang first asked, "May I know what you intend to take from us?" Minghe's strength was well-known in Untainted Land. Emperor Jiang had no idea what he would desire. Spiritual Treasures, Spiritual Roots, or something else?
Minghe replied, "All I want is a Blood of Essence from each of you and the Twelve Divine Beings Killing Formation from your tribe." The Twelve Ancestors of Sorcerer got irritated by this, even the Ancestor of Sorcery Houtu, who was meek in daily life.
Blood of Essence was the most precious element of a Tao-cultivator and a vital part of body cultivation. Even a single drop of Blood of Essence would cause much damage to one's body. Minghe wanted a Blood of Essence from each of them, as well as the most significant tactical formation, which was nearly wishful thinking.
Noticing their irritation, Minghe waved his hands again and a streak of purple air appeared in his hands. The Twelve Ancestors of Sorcerer resorted to silence instantly. "Is that the ...?" Minghe said, "This is exactly what I would trade for. How about your opinion?"
The Hall of Pangu suddenly turned quiet and the Twelve Ancestors of Sorcerer were all stunned. What Minghe asked for was insane, but it was nothing compared with the Hong Meng Immortal Qi. Blood of Essence could be healed slowly, but the Hong Meng Immortal Qi may not appear every day since there were a total of seven streaks in Untainted Land.
What the Twelve Ancestors of Sorcerer did not expect was that Minghe would exchange a Blood of Essence from each of them and the Twelve Divine Beings Killing Formation for the Hong Meng Immortal Qi, representing a Sage status, which was completely crazy. Others would scorn Minghe for making such a foolish trade. It was the Hong Meng Immortal Qi!
Moreover, they would think that since Minghe did not desire for the Hong Meng Immortal Qi, why would he have made the effort to seize it? They also felt sympathy for the dead 68 Sages-to-be, who struggled with their lives to obtain it, with which Minghe merely exchanged for stuff.
Torch Dragon hesitated for a while and asked uncertainly, "Fellow Taoist, are you kidding? Are you sure about exchanging our Blood of Essence and the Twelve Divine Beings Killing Formation for the Hong Meng Immortal Qi?"
Minghe nodded and said, "I am serious. If not, I would not be here now." Minghe himself knew that this trade was unimaginably strange, but he was sincere about this trade since the Hong Meng Immortal Qi was something insignificant for him. It would be more useful to exchange it for something that was cherished rather than let it be.
In addition, Minghe intended to repay some Karma he owed Pangu. Back at Mount Buzhou, Minghe obtained Pangu's Jade Essence, Green Lotus of Fate, some elixir, weapons, and tactical formations with his Merit of Creatipn, but he still owed some Karma to Pangu.
Judging by the trade itself, this was a fortune for the Wu Tribe. Blood of Essence from an Ancestor of Sorcerer was precious, but not a one-time distibution, which could be recovered form healing.
The Twelve Divine Beings Killing Formation was not something special. If arranged by others, this tactical formation would be impaired. The full power could be exerted and the Real Entity of Pangu could be called only by the joint arrangement of the Twelve Ancestors of Sorcerer. Even if this formation was arranged by Minghe with the Blood of Essence from the Twelve Ancestors of Sorcerer, it would not be that powerful. Furthermore, that formation could be destroyed with Minghe's strength.
Seemingly, Minghe would suffer losses from this trade, but he was planning something else. This unfair trade could settle the Karma he owed Pangu and help him get what he cherished. After all, different people had different views.
The Karma due would be repaid, which was also helpful for the cultivation course. Minghe could only repay it to the Pangu tribe, which were Three Pure Ones and the Twelve Ancestors of Sorcerer in Untainted Land.
Three Pure Ones already had the Hong Meng Immortal Qi and Primordial Supreme Treasures. Although nobody would dislike more Magic Weapons, Minghe was not willing to send them Primordial Spiritual Treasures or Primordial Supreme Treasures. The only method was going to the Wu Tribe, who happened to need the Hong Meng Immortal Qi, which Minghe possessed.
Despite Minghe's sincerity, the Twelve Ancestors of Sorcerer still showed doubt. Indeed, even Minghe himself believed that pie would not fall from Heaven, and what fell was more likely to be a trap.
Emperor Jiang asked with caution, "Fellow Taoist, I admit that we need the Hong Meng Immortal Qi, but don't you want it? You have reached the Peak Level of Sage-to-be, so with the help of the Hong Meng Immortal Qi, you are able to reach the Sage ahead of us all."
Minghe took a look at the Hong Meng Immortal Qi and said, "You are right, but I have found my own Tao. The Hong Meng Immortal Qi means nothing to me. I use it to exchange for something I want, and by the way, repay the Karma I owe to Pangu."
The Twelve Ancestors of Sorcerer were astonished by his words. The Hong Meng Immortal Qi was quite precious for everyone, but nothing useful for Minghe. It could be inferred that Minghe had found his own way to actualize the Realm of the Origion, which indicated that he was close to a Sage.
Hongjun once remarked that 3000 methods could be used to mix Nascent Core. There was a gap between Da Luo Golden Immortal of Origin and the Sage: the Sage, whose Original Spirit was refined in the Way of Heaven, could remain imperishable as long as the Way of Heaven kept sound; Da Luo Golden Immortal of Origin, having the similar power as the Sage, however, was unable to refine his Original Spirit in the Way of Heaven or remain imperishable thereby.
By contrast, it was of more benefit to be a Sage. With the help of the Hong Meng Immortal Qi, the whole process would be faster than that of Da Luo Golden Immortal of Origin. In addition, the 3000 methods mentioned by Honourable Ancestor was merely for Da Luo Golden Immortal of Origin, namely the Tao of Divine Law, which was a suffering path. Consequently, people in Untainted Land spared no efforts to seize Hongyun's Hong Meng Immortal Qi so as to reach the Sage faster.
