Chapter 416 True Elite Team!
Chapter 416 True Elite Team!
The real Tang Li Xue, who hid behind the thick bushes not far from the battlefield between two cultivator's teams, quickly covered Little Loki's furry ears while sealed her own silver fox ears with her Qi.
After Tang Li Xue's perfect copy triggered the [Hidden Exploding Talisman +3], the terrifying explosions continuously occurred at this moment on the battlefield between two cultivator's teams.
The thick dust and smoke were flying everywhere, mixed with the surrounding white fog, and it made all the cultivators there had a hard time knowing what currently happened.
Many cultivators, who were too busy fighting with each other before, were screaming in panic and fright right now.
Only one could describe their current situation here… CHAOS.
After the continuously terrifying explosions subsided, some unlucky cultivators were standing too close with the [Hidden Exploding Talisman +3] and got killed by the explosions from those talismans, but most of them were only lightly or heavily injured by it.
About sixty to seventy percent of them still survived from the effect of the [Hidden Exploding Talisman +3], and they could still move around despite their injuries.
The handsome young cultivator, who held the half of ancient jade emblem, was also still alive and only lightly injured, but he was clearly frightened silly by the current chaotic situation and did not know what he needed to do right now.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy quickly took this chance to approach the handsome young cultivator and took half of the ancient jade emblem tucked in his belt along with his spatial ring on his finger before she kicked him away like useless trash.
The handsome young cultivator quickly woke up from his daze and shouted out loud to ask for help!
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy knew that she certainly still could not match all of these injured cultivators alone if she tried to fight them head-on.
But of course, the plan of Tang Li Xue's perfect copy would not end until here!
"This is my final gift for all of you. [Stealth Illusion Talisman +3], active!" Tang Li Xue's perfect copy murmured while giggled softly as she made another hand gesture to trigger another kind of newly made talisman.
When she triggered [Stealth Illusion Talisman +3] used for disguising, the appearance of all cultivators with [Stealth Illusion Talisman +3] stuck on their body was changed to identical with Tang Li Xue's look with a black cloak and fox mask.
Under the extreme situation where the thick dust, choking smoke, and white fog covered their vision and senses… the angry and frustrated cultivators there started to fight crazily again with each other.
Most of them knew that Tang Li Xue's perfect copy was the one who made all of these traps to snatch half of the ancient jade emblem from them, so their anger especially aimed toward her right now… or the cultivators that currently disguised as her right now to be exact…
While all of those cultivators were fighting crazily to kill each other, Tang Li Xue's perfect copy activated [Shadow Flash] and teleported to the shade beside the real Tang Li Xue, who was still waiting for her behind the thick bushes near the battlefield.
"I get it!" Tang Li Xue's perfect copy happily took out half of the ancient jade emblem and observed it more closely.
It was the half of a white ancient jade emblem with 'Heaven' carved on it.
"Great! We only need one more 'Heaven' part and two 'Earth' parts. Then we can head directly to the peak of Cang Yang Mountain to enter Inheritance Ground Tablet. Let's go and continue our way!" Tang Li Xue urged her perfect copy.
"All right! Let's go! But it will be better if each of us used this [Talisman of Stealthy +3] to make us invisible." Tang Li Xue's perfect copy warned while proudly stuck the [Talisman of Stealthy +3] to herself, the real Tang Li Xue, and Little Loki's back.
Tang Li Xue thought that her perfect copy's suggestion made sense, but she still decided to stare at her perfect copy and asked: "You are really sure this talisman is really [Talisman of Stealthy +3], right? If you dare to stick that [Hidden Exploding Talisman +3] to us… we will make sure that you will regret it."
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy rolled her eyes and replied: "Oh, come on! How can I make such a stupid mistake?! We are one and the same, right? How could you not trust yourself for something like that?"
"Because we are one and the same that I cannot even trust you would not make such a stupid mistake…" Tang Li Xue suspiciously said.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy was completely dumbfounded by her real self's words…
Tang Li Xue, her perfect copy, and Little Loki continued on their way to the peak of Cang Yang Mountain again.
After each of them used [Talisman of Stealthy +3], they were traveling in an invisible state right now to not attract any attention, but each [Talisman of Stealthy +3] could only last for about fifteen minutes, so it was actually quite wasteful to keep using it until they reach the peak of Cang Yang Mountain.
"We are already halfway to the peak of Cang Yang Mountain right now… Little Loki, did you sense any half of the ancient jade emblem that appears near us again?" Tang Li Xue asked while patted at Little Loki's furry head gently.
But Little Loki only shook its furry head and lowered its head again, then back to sleep as usual.
"This is really strange. I feel something is not right here." Tang Li Xue's perfect copy muttered while slowly pondered carefully.
Tang Li Xue also frowned deeply and nodded her head in agreement.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy glanced at the real Tang Li Xue and asked: "What should we do now? Should we just wait at the peak of Cang Yang Mountain and rob someone else two complete ancient jade emblem there?"
"Since even we can think something despicable like that so easily, I am sure there are many people who think the same as us. The peak of Cang Yang Mountain would surely become the bloody battlefield for all cultivators, so I prefer that we gather our own complete ancient jade emblems before we silently sneak into Inheritance Ground Tablet later." Tang Li Xue explained her deduction.
"That is true! Fighting at the peak of Cang Yang Mountain to snatch two complete jade emblems from other cultivators would be very dangerous for us, especially since we are the weakest cultivators with the fewest teammate here." Tang Li Xue's perfect copy added a few words.
Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy let out a frustrated sigh in unison.
Finally, they decided to not head directly to the peak of Cang Yang Mountain and searching for another half of ancient jade emblems.
They met with several groups of cultivators on their way, but fortunately, they kept using [Talisman of Stealthy +3] to become invisible, so they did not attract any unwanted attention from those other groups of cultivators on their way.
Little Loki sensed that some of those groups of cultivators have some parts of ancient jade emblems with them, but there were more than ten cultivators in each of those groups of cultivators, and all of them already reach high-rank Acupuncture Opening Stage.
'Ahhhh~!!! This is really frustrating! Can we just use the same method as before and snatch their half ancient jade emblem?!' Tang Li Xue's perfect copy complained as she silently observed one of the group from behind the nearby tree.
'Don't be stupid… You can succeed before because two sides of cultivators' groups were too busy fighting against each other. But right now, they do not fight against each other, and only vigilantly stared at each other. I am 100% sure that you would pulverize to blood pulp if you did what you do previously here.' Tang Li Xue warned her perfect copy.
'Eh… look at that~! Isn't that our acquaintance, the Snow Fairy, Meng Ying? So she brings her team here to fight head-on with the groups of cultivators here? Tsk, tsk, tsk… How bold! But this development is also good since it will give me a chance to sneakily snatch some of the ancient jade emblem's parts!' Tang Li Xue's perfect copy commented in excitement.
But the real Tang Li Xue frowned deeply instead since she did not believe that the genius cultivators would act that rash without any proper plan.
'There are only females in White Crane Sect, but why there are many male cultivators in their group?! Also… Some of those male cultivators feel familiar… Wait a minute, aren't they core disciples from Immortal Sword Sect?! Look at that rascal! Isn't he Ye Zhen?!' The real Tang Li Xue exclaimed in surprise.
Their group wore three sets of different uniforms and different colors: azure blue, light purple, and white.
From the symbol on their uniform, Tang Li Xue deduced that their teams consisted of the core disciples from three different virtuous sects: White Crane Sect, Immortal Sword Sect, and Oracle Mountain Sect.
Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy groaned again in frustration.
This kind of team formed from the best core disciples of the three biggest virtuous sects in Lightwind Continent was truly troublesome.
'No wonder we did not find any part of ancient jade emblem until now. All of them were probably already taken by them! They even plan to take the ancient jade emblem's parts from those other cultivators' groups right now!' Tang Li Xue's perfect copy complained.
There were more than forty cultivators on the combination team of virtuous sects' core disciples.
They certainly planned to dominate almost all of fifty complete jade emblems for their own team, so all the core disciples from their team of virtuous sects would enter Inheritance Ground Tablet.
'This is really troublesome. The best core disciples from three virtuous sects blended into one team! How the hell we could take the ancient jade emblems from them?!' Tang Li Xue also lamented in annoyance.
