Ancient Godly Monarch - Chapter 1415 - Phoenix Bone Relic
Qin Wentian was similarly shocked. The cultivation of humans was different and it was impossible for them to reach great heights in a single step. In this point, the demonic beasts had an advantage over humans. The potential of demons were set largely at the moment of their birth, determining the heights they would reach in the future. Hence, when demons receive good fortune, their improvements were usually much more compared to humans.
The Demongod Mountain was the number one legend of the Desolate Mountains and it is indeed worthy of its reputation. Over here, there are many heavenly ingredients and earthly treasures that could cause demons to evolve. Although their cultivation bases weren’t able to directly leap up, it would give them a chance to evolve intrinsically, changing their innate heaven-given abilities. For example, the snake earlier had to cultivate to a certain extent on its own before it could transform into a dragon. But just by eating a treasure here, it was able to trigger the evolution. This wasn’t just a simple increase in strength, but an intrinsic transformation of its innate nature.
Such an effect was similar to the Sacred Luminance but was more tyrannical in comparison. The Demongod Mountain was truly a terrifying place. No wonder the demons all treated this as a sacred land of divinity.
Naturally with such heaven-defying treasures, the risks involved are also huge. Many demonic beasts died in the process of evolution, eliminating the weak. Those who remained were demons who successfully endured the pain and completed the transformation. Undoubtedly, their strength had definitely skyrocketed when compared to the past.
“That snake earlier was just an ordinary demonic creature. If a member of one of the royal demon factions also manages to complete the evolution, how terrifying would they be?” Nanfeng Mingyue mused in a low voice, feeling somewhat worried. ( )
“The demons of the royal factions all have high-graded bloodlines, the requirements for them to evolve are much tougher as well. Ordinary treasures would be of no use to them.” Evergreen Longhao replied. Everyone nodded in agreement with regards to this point. For ordinary treasures, their effects would weaken to the point of being negligible if used by a demon beast that has a powerful bloodline, in contrast to a demonic beast with a weaker bloodline using it.
“This god mountain is truly unfathomable. We have just entered the Desolate Mountain Range and there are already such treasures forming. There are bound to have more startling secrets deep within.” Qin Wentian spoke. “Let’s continue in.”
Everyone nodded. Countless demonic beasts were also entering but none of them bothered with these humans. There was no need to. The humans who entered found themselves very free as well, not having to tangle with the demonic beasts. They were also wondering what would happen if they ate the special plants that grew here. Would there be any effect for them?
The immortal senses of Qin Wentian and the others were restricted. They flew with great speed through the air and continued to advance. They didn’t try to fight for these plants with the demonic beasts below. If they did so, they would surely trigger a joint attack by these demons. In addition, such treasures weren’t able to stir their hearts at all.
Their target was the Demongod Mountain that is located in the very depths within the Desolate Mountain Range. They wanted to probe all the secrets.
What made Qin Wentian and the others shocked was that even now, the god mountain was still transforming, creating new landscapes and different peaks at every moment, continuously spreading outwards. At times, Qin Wentian and his group would suddenly find themselves in a ravine, and some moments later, they would be at the top of an ancient peak.
“I can feel a very strong aura that resembles my own aura.” Nanfeng Mingyue suddenly spoke, her words causing Qin Wentian’s gaze to stiffen. The members of the Southern Phoenix Clan all possessed the phoenix bloodline. If Nanfeng Mingyue could sense an aura resembling hers, it meant that it’s very possible for a demonic creature that also possesses the phoenix bloodline to appear here.
“Which direction?” Qin Wentian asked.
“Over there.” Nanfeng Mingyue pointed to a random place and headed there after that. The immortal senses of everyone were restricted and they could only rely on their vision. After traveling for some time, they froze as they saw a bone relic far away from them.
This bone relic was extremely gigantic, the skull was inclined upwards, as though the creature was proud even when in moments of its death, unwilling to bow its head.
The blood had already been drained and the flesh all corroded, leaving behind a mere skeleton. But even so, the aura of the skeleton was extremely powerful and there was even runic light gleaming from the bone. It was a rune bone relic.
“It must be a true phoenix when it was alive.” The hearts of the members from the Southern Phoenix Clan trembled. In this secret realm, there actually was a bone relic from a phoenix of true blood. This god mountain was truly extraordinary. Where was this place exactly?
In front, there were also several experts, some from the Desolate Mountains and some from the immortal realms, standing with their weapons drawn, staring at the phoenix bone relic up ahead, wanting to seize it.
Qin Wentian could see blood-colored runes carved on the bone and feel the strength radiating from it. This bone relic was priceless and can be called a supreme treasure. It wasn’t something the treasure plants the demonic beasts consumed earlier, could be compared to.
“When this phoenix was alive, it should have been at the demon emperor realm, a supreme demon of the heavens. She has long comprehended the dao of laws, causing her bones to be engraved with the law runes. From this bone relic, if one has affinity with it, they might be able to comprehend the insights and techniques of this phoenix.” Nanfeng Mingyue’s eyes blazed with passion. Her Southern Phoenix Clan’s totem was that of a phoenix and they all cultivate phoenix-type cultivation arts and techniques, possessing a phoenix bloodline. However, the purity of their blood naturally wouldn’t be able to compare to that of a real phoenix. Unless one reaches the level of the Southern Phoenix Matriarch, they wouldn’t be able to comprehend the phoenix arts deeper to achieve further breakthroughs based on the limitation of insights and the purity level of their bloodline.
At this moment, a greater demon growled, “Scram. This isn’t a place you humans should be.”
The eyes of the greater demon were incomparably lofty. Although he was in human form, blood-colored wings could be seen behind him.
“Phoeroc Race.” Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed.
“Get lost, stop making trouble.” A sharp voice echoed out, speaking to Qin Wentian and his group. The person who spoke was actually a human. Before this, Qin Wentian had seen this man before. He was none other than Shangguang Jianyi of the Paragon Sword Sect. He was extremely powerful and had slain a Taotie. He also can be considered a peak-level genius within the sacred academy and his current cultivation base was at the peak-phase of the mid-stage immortal king realm.
The auras of everyone here surged forth. The humans and demons here seemed to have already fought before and was now standing in opposition, glaring at each other.
“What a joke. Why can you all stay here and we can’t?” Qin Wentian’s eyes turned cold.
“The Paragon Sword Sect, wow so impressive.” Nanfeng Mingyue icily spoke. Her Southern Phoenix Clan had a foundation deeper than them, could it be that she didn’t have the qualifications to interfere in this? Shangguang Jianyi even dared to tell her to get lost.
“Another bunch of insufferable humans.” The expert from the Phoeroc Race arrogantly spoke.
“Truly insufferable.” A golden crow sneered as his body burst into flames, illuminating its surroundings, causing the temperature here to soar up.
“Your Southern Phoenix Clan wants this bone relic? You are not qualified enough yet.” An expert from the Ying Clan icily spoke. They were also part of the three great ancient clans in the southern regions, they naturally didn’t want this bone relic to be obtained by the Southern Phoenix Clan.
“One has to depend on their own capabilities to contend for treasures.” Qin Wentian calmly spoke.
“What a joke.” Shangguang Jianyi frowned, his gaze like a sharp sword, staring right at Qin Wentian.
This bone relic might not be of much use to the Ying Clan, but they might still be able to use it to forge a supreme divine weapon in the future. Given the size of this bone relic, it must be priceless and can be comparable to emperor-ranked weapons.
“Although your combat prowess isn’t bad and your cultivation speed is fast, you are too arrogant. Just with you, Evergreen Longhao and Nanfeng Mingyue? Why don’t you ask them if they can be compared to me when we three were in the sacred academy? You are merely an initial-stage immortal king and there is no one protecting you now. I can kill you with a single sword attack.”
The eyes of Shangguang Jianyi gleamed with sharpness, flashing with killing intent. The various major powers here fighting for a bone relic were already a headache. Now, Qin Wentian’s group wanted to stir things up further.
“He is someone treated as a valued guest by the Southern Phoenix Clan and is naturally arrogant. However, given how vast the immortal realms are, you are sorely mistaken if you feel all the major powers are like the weakling Eastern Sage Immortal Sect. Nanfeng Mingyue, your clan is protecting him because you believed that he would grow to be extremely strong in the future? How pitiful.” An expert of the Ying Clan coldly laughed. “If you all still refuse to scram, we will deal with you first.”
They were temporarily allied with the Paragon Sword Sect. Qin Wentian’s group wanted to be the fisherman that reaps the benefits in troubled waters when they fought against the demons? There was no way they would let this succeed.
Upon seeing the internal conflict of the humans, the expert from the Phoeroc Race and the golden crow soared up into the sky, staring at them in disdain.
Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed, these fellows didn’t want to deal with the demons but wanted to act against them first? His eyes flickered with coldness as he spoke, “Back then, I was acquainted with a Ying Teng of the Ying Clan and a member of the Paragon Sword Sect. How arrogant and lofty were they? Acting just like you guys now but at the very end, weren’t they humiliated and killed by me? Even if they didn’t die, they would be left far behind in the dust by my progress. I truly have no idea what qualifications you all have to brag here? Do you all even know shame?”
“Trash.” The immortal king of the Ying Clan revealed an expression of rage. He stared in contempt at Qin Wentian as the sound of a dragon roaring could be heard within his body. Stepping out tyrannically, he stared at Qin Wentian, “Although there are many major powers supporting you, if my Ying Clan wants to kill you, you wouldn’t be able to survive till the next day. My cultivation base is equivalent to you and I will give you a fair chance to fight against me. If not, the others might say that my Ying Clan is bullying you.”
This man was just like a dragon, a ferocious desolate beast that exuded an incomparably tyrannical aura. He was a heaven chosen from the ancient Ying Clan and had unparalleled combat prowess. As part of the three ancient great clans in the south, no matter how impressive Qin Wentian’s background was, he would definitely dare to kill him.
“If you want to kill me, I won’t survive till tomorrow?” Qin Wentian coldly spoke as he stepped out as well. He glanced at the surrounding experts from the Paragon Sword Sect and from their expressions, he knew that many humans who entered here, all wanted a chance to take his life.
“In that case, I really want to see how you can take my life.” When Qin Wentian stepped out, he also released his law domain. In an instant, a destructive devil might engulfed this entire space.
“Help me to block the interference of others. I want him to die.” Qin Wentian coldly spoke. The other experts from the Battle Saint Tribe nodded and took a step forward, preparing to act at any moment.
