460 Ghost Emperor Exterminates Resentment (1)
“Lord, it’s this kid. His name is Xu Qing.”
“In addition, he has a companion. After investigation, it’s his senior brother, Chen Erniu. As for the third person, it’s also clear. She’s the holy maiden of the Litu Dao Altar of the Yinghuang Province. Her name is Qing Qiu. She’s on the way and will arrive in a few days.”
A strange expression appeared on the old man’s face as he continued speaking.
“What these three people did hastened the madness of Nether Fairy. So, according to my judgment, they should be the people Nether Fairy hates the most now.”
The middle-aged man nodded.
“There’s no hurry. Let’s try it ourselves first. If we still can’t make Nether Fairy’s emotions collapse and allow us to successfully search her soul, we’ll bring the three of them over to stimulate her.”
“Also, this Xu Qing isn’t bad and his temperament isn’t bad either. If he has the ability to become a Sword Holder, he can be considered a good seedling.”
“The county is preparing to reactivate the Ancient Immortal Forbidden to deal with the signs of frequent recovery from the various provinces. Hence, you can add more bloodshed to this assessment. The times are different. We want wolf cubs, not domestic dogs.”
When the old man heard the words ‘Ancient Immortal Forbidden’, his expression changed.
“Reactivate the Ancient Immortal Forbidden? Isn’t there a rumor that an unknown god is sleeping there?”
“That’s right. The world thinks that the calamity in the Wanggu Continent came just from the fragmented-face of the god in the sky, but they don’t know that… according to the records, in the era where the ancient sovereigns and rulers had no choice but to leave, there was not only the fragmented-face which arrived, but there were also many who hid themselves.”
“I wonder what They are waiting for. Since the county has the intention to reactivate it, they might also be under orders to verify it.” The middle-aged cultivator shook his head and turned to leave.
Only the old man stood on the spot with a complicated expression. He sighed softly and his body slowly disappeared.
Seven days passed.
During these seven days, Xu Qing returned to his previous life. He headed to the Dao altar every day and listened attentively to the lessons there to learn more about herbs and vegetation.
No one challenged him anymore. This caused Xu Qing to become the second person among the various forces who no one dared to fight.
During this period, the Dao Child of the Grand Affairs Immortal Sect also returned.
His return stirred up multicolored light that filled the sky. It was as though he had mastered his spell and couldn’t completely restrain it. Hence, he attracted countless attention. Xu Qing also looked at the sky.
He sensed a hint of pressure from the multicolored light outside the Dao Child’s body.
Even after this Dao Child returned, everything in the Grand Affairs Immortal Sect was normal. He didn’t do anything because of Li Ziliang’s death. It was as though in his mind, Li Ziliang was irrelevant.
“Is it him?” Xu Qing fell silent. He wasn’t sure but this didn’t affect his vigilance.
In addition, in these seven days, Xu Qing’s greatest gain was his improvement in alchemy.
During a lecture, the old man from the Dao altar proposed a concept. The other party directly said that this concept wasn’t mature and could only be considered a support.
That was identifying unknown herbs.
Vein analysis, observing the herb’s habits, the environment of the herb, its effects, and determining their nature with their effects. This series of identification methods opened up an unknown train of thought for Xu Qing.
He recalled the herb knowledge he had and discovered that although this method of identification wasn’t completely correct, it was at least 80% correct.
Although the slightest difference in the path of alchemy was the difference between heaven and earth, to alchemy cultivators, having more methods of identifying was extremely useful in using new herbs.
Other than that, Xu Qing also heard the term divine herb from the old man on the Dao altar.
Xu Qing was neither familiar nor unfamiliar with divine herbs. He was unfamiliar because there weren’t many records of them in Grandmaster Bai’s books. He wasn’t unfamiliar because ever since he came into contact with plants and vegetation, he had been searching for a divine herb.
However, even after Captain Lei passed away, and even until now, he still couldn’t find it.
That was the heavenfate flower that could extend one’s life for a lifetime.
“The heavenfate flower, also known as the life-extension blaze and the divine spirit grass. It is a mutated variant of the divine-class plant, compound wood. According to records, there are a total of 73 variants, but only the first variant can be used in medicine. It grows in any area within a forbidden zone, but there are no rules to dictate where it might be found. It is extremely rare.
“Its effects consist of regenerating broken limbs and even reigniting one’s life force. Other than soul injuries, it can cure everything.”
The old man sitting cross-legged on the Dao altar in front of him calmly spoke and imparted his teachings to the seven to eight cultivators who were listening to his lecture.
To him, the knowledge of herbs and alchemy was both his and the human race’s. Hence, even though not many people listened, he still continued to preach the Dao.
In fact, in the early years, he would travel in all directions and spread knowledge of herbs and alchemy in different human territories. However, he was getting old and his lifespan was near its end, so he didn’t go out anymore.
Instead, he stayed in the Sword Holding Court and taught knowledge of herbs and alchemy to the rogue cultivators here.
Because he had seen too many students, he didn’t pay too much attention to these cultivators who came and went.
“At the end of the day, the so-called divine plants are a change in life level. In fact, this old man has been studying a topic all these years. It’s plants. They seem to be more suitable for this world after the god arrived than flesh beings.”
“Hence, this old man often thinks that perhaps the divine plant will be the direction to study the god.”
When Xu Qing heard this, his body trembled. He suddenly thought of Illuminate and Bai Li back then.
Bai Li had a spirit plant on him. In the end, he fused with the spirit plant and erupted with a certain amount of divinity fluctuations. After that, he thought of Saintly Star.
