Chapter 539: Great changes are approaching

Translator: Sigma Editor: Hitesh
As soon as Li Zheng Rong left the Flying Cloud Summit, he couldn't wait and grabbed Shi Yan, then shot out at a speed as fast as the light of the galaxy streamer. It was a bit rough to Shi Yan, making his breathing quite difficult.

At this moment, Shi Yan knew that Li Zheng Rong had lied to him the whole time, saying that his body was too fat to move conveniently. Although Li Zheng Rong hadn’t broken through to the True God Realm, once he ran at max speed, he was like a meteor chasing after the moon, extremely fast.

He and Cherry had spent three and a half days to reach the Flying Cloud Summit from the dead souls’ cave without a rest stop along the way. However, it took Li Zheng Rong only two hours in bringing him to the target place, the cave where the dead souls gathered, under his navigation.

Right when the fat Li Zheng Rong arrived, he took out an emerald armor, which looked like a stream of water flowing around his outfit. Green waves were rippling on it. This was a Sacred Level secret treasure with water attribute.

After he got into the cave under the shade of the mountain, Li Zheng Rong’s small eyes got colder. His face darkened as he said glumly. "We’re late."

The cave was empty. No dead souls remained, neither did a single blade of grass. The green dot that looked sinister and gloomy on the wall were all gone too. Only the cold, strange aura stayed.

"It's been just three days," Shi Yan walked to the deepest area of the cave, searching carefully. He pointed at a concave area. "I saw the green meat block here. I'm sure that I wasn't hallucinating!"

Li Zheng Rong didn’t doubt him as he nodded, "I trust you."

His brows furrowed tightly, revealing a seriousness he had never revealed before. He walked back and forth inside the cave many times. His small eyes were as bright as two dazzling diamonds in this gloomy cave.

Afterward, Li Zheng Rong exhaled begrudgingly. "Big troubles."

"What has happened?" Shi Yan didn’t understand.

"There must be a big change in those dead souls."

Li Zheng Rong turned around, contemplated for a while, and then explained, "Forty years ago, a formidable dead soul had appeared in the dead souls’ evil lairs. We had joined hands with the Pure Land, the Devil Valley, and the Radiant God Cult to kill that dead soul. In that battle, many Spirit Realm experts from the Pure Land, the Devil Valley, and the Radiant God Cult died. Their souls were dragged into the dead soul’s evil lairs. A warrior of the Devil Valley, thanks to his bizarre soul technique, could endure for a short while in the evil lair. Before he lost his mind, he reminded us not to let the dead soul give birth to an entity at any cost. At his last moment before turning into a dead soul, he said that the dead souls have some secret method that uses the warriors’ dead bodies to nurture their entity. Once a high-level dead soul could have a body, its power would increase tremendously. And, its cultivation base would be enhanced several times stronger."

Shi Yan discolored.

"The Sky Realm warriors can't deal with the typical dead souls. A relatively high-level dead soul can toy the Spirit Realm experts in its hands. Regarding this max-level dead soul, only the True God Realm warriors can save their souls from the erosive power. If you want to destroy it, you have to use the secret treasures with the lightning attribute. When the max-level dead souls have a body, they will be complete. At that time, they won't need to depend on the dead souls' evil lair anymore. They can leave the evil lair and it will be a big catastrophe of the Dead Soul Mountain range. This can even spread to the Divine Great Land!"

Li Zheng Rong was anxious and kept sighing.

Shi Yan kept silent, not saying a word.

"I have to contact the experts in the mountain range shortly and notify the Elders of the Pure Land, the Radiant God Cult, and the Devil Valley. Before that dead soul completes its body, we should destroy the chunk of meat that could become its body. We can’t linger even a second!"

Li Zheng Rong pondered and then suggested, "You should leave the Dead Soul Mountain range as soon as possible. I think it would be very dangerous in the coming time. The dead souls know what that body means to them, so they will protect it with all of their abilities. The Dead Soul Mountain range will have a big battle, in which I don't know how many would die. Sigh, too bad I haven't entered the True God Realm yet. I still need one more year. This event has happened before time."

"I got it," Shi Yan replied naturally.

"Yeah, at first, you can go to the Spirit Potion Valley or the Precious Tool Valley. But you shouldn't stay there for long." Li Zheng Rong was worried as if he had a flame burning his heart, and didn’t dilly dally. "I should prepare immediately. About that little girl, you shouldn't be hurried. It's useless to be anxious, too. I think you can wait for the right time. Even if you don't find her, she will come to you. You two still have time to meet."

Then, Li Zheng Rong left quickly. It seemed he wanted to check the caves around the area to see if he could find the gathering point of the dead souls.

The Dead Soul Mountain range had almost one thousand mountains, situated in a vast area. Not all the dead souls were stupid. When they knew they should hide their auras, they would be more careful. Shi Yan thought his search would be negative, and that he couldn’t find the new gathering spot of the dead soul in just a short time.

After Li Zheng Rong left, Shi Yan didn't linger. He pondered, then decided to return to the Spirit Potion Valley and the Precious Tool Valley. He could ask for more details and traces there to keep track of this strange event.

Three days later, he came back to the Spirit Potion Valley, but didn't go to the Spirit Hall right away. He made a tour around the Spirit Potion Valley and then headed to the Precious Tool Valley.

The Precious Tool Valley and the Spirit Potion Valley were neighbors. There were shops that sold the materials for forging treasure around the place. People in the Precious Tool Valley were all blacksmiths.

In the Precious Tool Valley, they also had the same structure as the Spirit Hall, which was called the Tool Hall, managed by some Sacred Level blacksmiths of the Dead Soul Mountain range. After he arrived the Precious Tool Valley, he visited each store to find some strange spirit crystals.

"Little buddy, you’ve been wandering half a day already but you haven’t bought anything yet. You don’t like anything in my store?" In a ware shop named Universe, the owner was a Third Sky of Nirvana Realm warrior with messy hair, a red nose, and opaque, squinted eyes just like he was still sleepy-headed. The owner had looked at Shi Yan for half a day. Eventually, he couldn’t help but ask him.

"Hey shopkeeper, are there any blacksmiths in the Precious Tool Valley who know how to use the magical formation?" Shi Yan leaned against a shelf, smiled and asked him.

"What’s that formation?" asked the owner.

"Teleporting type"

The shop owner was astounded. Afterward, he smiled oddly and said. "Friend, have you just arrived the Dead Soul Mountain range?"

"Yes."

"The blacksmiths who could build the teleporting formation are really amazing! In the Dead Soul Mountain range, there’re several who know how to make this formation. If you want to find them, go to the Tool Hall. I think the elders should know something about it. Anyway, it cost a fortune to build the teleportation formation. First, you will need the Nether crystal. I hear that the Nether crystals exist only in some space cracks. They are so rare. Really tough to find."

Shi Yan was startled.

That year when he had entered the Chasm Abyss Battlefield through the Teleport formation, he had seen the scenes changing unceasingly. That Ancient Teleportation Array had left a deep impression on him. In the Endless Sea, the Three God Sect and the Yang family also had a small-scaled teleportation formation. Although the distance was limited, Shi Yan knew how important it was to a strong force.

He wanted to build a big teleportation formation that could connect the Ice Emperor City and possibly, forming the connection with the Endless Sea in the future. That’s why he wanted to find an excellent blacksmith to buy a Teleportation formation.

From the shopkeeper’s explanation, he got to know that the blacksmiths who could build the array were rare.

He bid farewell to the shop owner and then spent another two days in the Precious Tool Valley to ask for the information from other blacksmiths. But he couldn’t find anyone who knew the method to build the formation.

All the blacksmiths he had asked told him that only the Elders of the Tool Hall knew how to build the Teleportation Formation. When he told him that the formation he wanted to build should be able to teleport through the sea, the blacksmiths looked at him as if they were looking at a monster.

They then told him clearly that even the Elders of the Tool Hall could only build small-scaled formations, which could transport to ten thousand li at max. Beyond this distance, it would be quite tough.

Shi Yan was totally disappointed.

He then borrowed a small gravitational room in the Tool Hall to train his body, trying to drain the mysterious energy in his muscles in the forty times heavier gravity room. He hoped that he could maximize his bearing capacity.

Time flew fast, as ten days passed like a blink of an eye.

He had exhausted himself in the gravitational room. Thoughts flickered in his head as he recalled the experience in blacksmithing of the blacksmith from the Ice Cold Flame's memories.

The related secrets of refining treasures were moving in his head like three-dimension pictures.

After searching for half a day, he still couldn't find any memories related to the Teleportation Formation. He felt dispirited as he opened his eyes wider while sinking into his thought.

Blacksmith’s Secrets of Success!

After a while, Shi Yan’s eyes brightened. He shot up from his seat.

He suddenly recalled the ancient book he had gotten from the mysterious exotic land – the Blacksmith’s Secrets of Success. That mysterious land had so many rare treasures. In the center of the two galaxies, he got that book, which had some seal he couldn’t open.

It seemed the Blacksmith’s Secrets of Success was really old and mysterious. Perhaps, it would have the method to build the ancient transmission formation.

The ancient teleport formation was a big-sized one, as it could transport things over a big distance. If he had the method to build the formation, he would gather the materials and do it himself.

His mind flickered and the Blacksmith’s Secrets of Success flew out from the Storage Ring, floating in front of him. The four big words written in ancient calligraphy on the cover sparkled.

He reached out his left hand and gently put it on the Blacksmith’s Secret of Success. A vehement shiver rippled from the book, creating a strong force that pushed his hand aside.

He then urged his Soul Consciousness. However, he was pushed back by a soul energy before he could reach the book. It repeated several times and he still didn’t know how to access the book.

"You can’t access this thing simply. This book comes from the Antiquity Era. You need to use the Soul Dividing technique, which also comes from the Antiquity time, to open the book." The Ice Cold Flame turned into a beautiful white light, emerging from the Blood Vein Ring and sending him its thoughts.
