Chapter 1302 – Movement from the Incubating Egg
The Blazing Gold Race party entered through a small path and encountered no obstructions.
“The mechanisms and arrays on this path have already been undone by someone. If we follow this route, we won’t be able to get anything good.” The violet-robed elder of the Blazing Gold Race suddenly stopped.
“The party ahead of us shouldn’t have many people, right?” Ancient God Gilded Gold asked.
The Blazing Gold Race had brought mostly Rank Seven Ancient Gods, with their leader being the Rank Eight Ancient God Giant Spirit.
Based on what Ancient God Gilded Gold had said, there weren’t any treasures here that could tempt higher-ranked Ancient Gods in these ruins. Moreover, these ruins were located in the territory of the five-star faction, Divine Tree Ocean. It was not proper for the Blazing Gold Race to so brashly send in its upper echelon members deep into the territory of another five-star faction. That would just expose the ruins.
In the end, the Blazing Gold Race decided to send a group of Rank Seven Ancient Gods led by a Rank Eight Ancient God.
“That’s natural. From what this old man can see, the other team can’t be more than five people.” The violet-robed elder smiled.
“Everything they have obtained will be the Blazing Gold Race’s!” Ancient God Giant Spirit’s eyes flashed with golden light.
The meaning of his words was blatantly obvious. They would slowly progress on this route and rob and kill anyone they ran into.
The dimension these ruins resided in was extremely unstable. If a Rank Nine Ancient God entered, even coming out alive would be a problem. Thus, the members of the Blazing Gold Race surmised that they could not possibly run into a Rank Nine Ancient God.
They belonged to the race ranked 21st among the Ten Thousand Ancient Races and had many people in their party. They could essentially dominate these ruins.
Underground, Zhao Feng’s party continued to cautiously advance. In comparison to the outside, where Yao Gods were the greater threat, most of the danger inside the ruins came from the traps.
“I smell something strange!” The young lady’s nose suddenly flared as she spoke.
It just so happened that there was a fork in the road up ahead.
“Based on how the mechanisms are distributed, there should be an important area up ahead,” Ancient God Black Extreme said, and the direction he was pointing was in roughly the same direction as the odor the woman smelled.
The party decided to follow this direction. After traveling for a little while, the path began to widen while a massive door of violet crystal appeared in front of them.
The violet crystal door was the largest the group had encountered. They could faintly see through its boundary array.
Inside was a large circular room, the walls studded with crystal boxes. The boxes contained various colors of dirt upon which many kinds of flowers and herbs had been planted. Besides that, there were also many kinds of large devices and instruments that none of them had ever seen before.
But this circular chamber had partially collapsed, resulting in many of these objects being buried or broken. Many of the crystal boxes embedded in the walls had been damaged or destroyed, with their plants having withered away long ago.
But two of the crystal boxes had managed to remain intact. Some of the plants inside them still had spiritual energy and glistened with a strange luster.
“That’s… Seven-Colored Samsara Grass!” the young lady yelped in surprise.
Of the Eight Great God Eyes, the hardest to cultivate was the Eye of Destiny while the second hardest was the Eye of Samsara. This was because the powers of these two eyes were extremely difficult to comprehend.
For example, back in the Continent Zone, one of Zhao Feng’s past opponents, Sacred King Samsara, had only managed to comprehend the power of Samsara by constantly hunting down people who had reincarnated.
“Celestial Void Sacred Mushroom! Thousand Wheel Karma Fruit!” The usually calm Lin Chengwu immediately widened his eyes as he spotted a few of the plants behind the barrier.
“Ancient God Black Extreme, hurry and open up this array!” The young lady was rather impatient.
Everything they had encountered so far was related to Death Intent, but now, she finally saw the cultivation treasures that she longed for.
Zhao Feng’s left eye could clearly perceive the situation in the crystal chests and determined that they were authentic. Zhao Feng cultivated many kinds of Intent at the moment, and many of the objects in the crystal boxes would be of great use to him.
“Don’t be impatient! The mechanisms and arrays for this door are on a far higher level. It will take me a while to undo them.” Ancient God Black Extreme appeared more composed. He took out his black stone plate and began to research the secrets of this door’s mechanisms.
“If this place hadn’t been damaged, the cultivation resources inside would probably be equal to the entire fortune of a Rank Nine Ancient God….” The woman gave an emotional sigh.
There were more than twenty of these crystal boxes, but all except two had been damaged.
While Ancient God Black Extreme was undoing the violet crystal door, the rest of the party seated themselves on the ground and began to recover their energy. The area behind the violet crystal door had treasures, but there was no telling if it also contained some unexpected danger.
“Okay!” Ancient God Black Extreme said after a long while.
“Okay, what do we need to do?” the lady immediately asked.
“Unlike last time, this formation has five critical spots….” Ancient God Black Extreme gave a simple overview of the method.
The woman immediately summoned two Samsara Immortal Bodies.
Ancient God Black Extreme proceeded to undo the mechanisms. Once the complicated runes around the violet crystal door began to flash, that would be the sign that the mechanisms had been undone.
The remaining members of the party immediately attacked the five critical spots, instantly undoing the boundary.
This time, they chose to cautiously step in rather than rush inside.
“There… doesn’t appear to be anything dangerous here.” Lin Chengwu’s gaze carefully scanned the surroundings.
But at this moment, an enormous boom came from their right.
“What’s going on?” The beautiful woman immediately appeared wary. The explosion was accompanied by powerful ripples of energy.
With a sweep of their Divine Senses, they immediately paled.
“It’s someone else!” Lin Chengwu called out.
The area the explosion came from just so happened to be obscured by a pile of debris, so no one had noticed anything strange. In truth, there was another entrance to this area, and while Lin Chengwu and the others were breaking their array, another team was at that entrance breaking their own array.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Three figures suddenly appeared in the chamber. The gazes of the two teams instantly met.
“There was someone else here?” an azure-robed elder asked, his gaze unkind.
It’s him…. Zhao Feng’s eyes focused on a black-clothed man.
This middle-aged man had only a single eye, his right eye, which was the Eye of Myriad Forms. This was exactly the person that Zhao Feng had bumped into when he was visiting the Life Sacred Land, and with his single Eye of Myriad Forms, he had wanted to attack Zhao Feng.
“Heheh!” The one-eyed Ancient God Profound Devil scanned Zhao Feng’s party and coldly laughed.
“Zhao Feng!?” A yellow-clothed youth in Ancient God Profound Devil’s team blurted out in surprise.
Zhao Feng turned to look and realized that this youth was one of the members of the Life Sacred Land that he had accompanied to the God Eye Assembly.
“There are four of us and only three of you, and we were the first to discover this place, so I advise you to give up!” Ancient God Black Extreme stepped forward, a look of warning on his face.
Lin Chengwu and the woman were just preparing to question Ancient God Black Extreme. After all, they had all signed contracts ensuring that they could not leak this matter to anyone else, so only Ancient God Black Extreme could have done so.
But when they heard Ancient God Black Extreme’s words, they fell silent. Although Ancient God Black Extreme could have leaked the information, there was also a chance that someone else had discovered the ruins on their own.
“Hah, you seem to have more people, but it looks to me like their strength is mediocre.” The azure-robed elder had a profound and crafty gaze, and he exuded the aura of a peak Rank Seven.
“Those crystal boxes can’t be directly touched. If we can’t get them, then neither can you!” Ancient God Profound Devil chuckled. He was at the peak of Rank Seven as well, even somewhat stronger than the azure-robed elder.
These words caused everyone to inspect the two crystal boxes. It was true that their surfaces were covered in complicated and mysterious mechanisms.
Lin Chengwu and the beautiful woman immediately grimaced. If Ancient God Black Extreme went to undo the mechanisms, then the rest of the team would be no match for the other team. But if the other team insisted on fighting, they wouldn’t be able to completely drive them away.
“Let’s not be too hasty….” Ancient God Black Extreme messaged the members of his team and gave his own suggestion.
“If you were able to get here, then you must also have someone skilled with mechanisms and arrays. Why don’t we work together and split the contents of the crystal boxes?” Having received the approval of the rest of his team, Ancient God Black Extreme spoke his proposal with a smile.
They could open the boxes first and then fight over the treasures, and since Ancient God Black Extreme’s side had one extra person, they would have the upper hand.
“I was planning to say the same thing.” Ancient God Profound Devil faintly smiled as he stepped forward.
The members of both teams skilled in mechanisms and arrays went to the crystal boxes. The remaining members of the teams kept a close eye on the opposing side.
If my guess is correct, that one-eyed person with the Eye of Myriad Forms is the leader of that team. Zhao Feng had a gloomy expression in his eyes, suspicion building in his mind.
Ancient God Black Extreme and Ancient God Profound Devil both weren’t that old, yet they had both researched mechanisms and arrays, and they both also happened to be the leaders of their respective teams. In addition, Zhao Feng saw a team when they were outside that consisted of four people, which meant that there was still another team in these ruins.
Zhao Feng couldn’t help but become even more cautious. There was something strange going on with this ruin exploration.
At this moment, Zhao Feng received a message in his mind.
“Master, that egg…” It was the Black Destruction Serpent Dragon, communicating with Zhao Feng through the Dark Heart Seal.
“Egg?” Zhao Feng was stunned at first, but then his expression froze as he understood.
In the Spacetime Robe’s dimension, near the Black Destruction Serpent Dragon, the gray and gloomy egg was trembling. A complicated silver character would occasionally emerge from the egg and begin to strangely float around its surface.
“Just what is this thieving cat?” The Black Destruction Serpent Dragon had an extremely grave expression.
Suddenly, the mysterious characters and runes on the egg brightened, exuding an ancient aura.
“This is the aura of an ancient bloodline…!” The Black Destruction Serpent Dragon’s body went stiff. Its thin Destruction Dragon Race bloodline was almost completely frozen by the aura of this unknown ancient bloodline.
Zhao Feng was just preparing to look at what was happening in the Spacetime Robe, but at this moment, Ancient God Black Extreme bellowed, “Go!”
The crystal boxes were opened. The extremely valuable cultivation treasures were exposed for all to see!
