Chapter 425 New Quest! Defeat 1,000 Lesser Evil Spirits!
Chapter 425 New Quest! Defeat 1,000 Lesser Evil Spirits!
Tang Li Xue kicked several other skeletons and dried corpses until their body shattered, but they immediately recovered to normal again in a few moments.
Tang Li Xue frowned deeply and exclaimed in annoyance: "These creatures are really troublesome! Besides that, can they even be killed?"
Meanwhile, the number of resurrected skeletons and dried corpses kept increasing steadily.
From 30 to 50, from 50 to 80, and so on…
Some of them approached Tang Li Xue from the farther area, while most of them crawled out from the barren ground.
Currently, there were already more than 100 of them besieging Tang Li Xue from all directions and continuously slashed their weapons toward her.
The pressure Tang Li Xue was currently facing also keep increasing, and she was starting to get anxious since she could not even kill a single one of them while their numbers kept increasing at an alarming speed.
[Entry Pass Quest Completed!]
[Gained: Level +1, Stat Point+100 (+25), Skill Point+15(+4), 80(+20) Deity Coins]
[Congratulation! Your cultivation level achieved Rank 2 Acupuncture Opening Stage! All Stats +500]
Tang Li Xue sighed out in relief after she received the completed quest notification from her system.
'That is actually quite a close one. I should be more careful with the time-limited quest in the future.' Tang Li Xue warned herself.
Tang Li Xue's mind kept pondering her next move while she kept using her Transcendence State [Drifting Cloud Palm] to agilely dodge or parry all of the attacks from the skeletons and dried corpses.
'Should I just run away from here? But where do I need to run to? I do not even know any damn thing about this Inheritance Ground tablet! Furthermore, these creatures are really annoying! They keep resurrecting nonstop, and I cannot even move around freely because of them.' Tang Li Xue groaned in frustration.
When Tang Li Xue was still busily defending herself against the armies of skeletons and dried corpses, her system suddenly gave her another notification…
[Quest: (1st Inheritance Trial) Defeat 1,000 Lesser Evil Spirits in 6 hours to get the Inheritance of Evil Ghost Emperor! (0/1000)]
[Reward: Level +1, Stat Point+100 (+25), Skill Point+15(+4), 80(+20) Deity Coins]
"What the hell?! Another time-limited quest?! System, are you kidding with me?!" Tang Li Xue shouted in anger and surprise.
She could not even kill one skeleton or dried corpse right now since they kept recover to normal in a few moments even after Tang Li Xue struck them with her full strength, but her system gave her quest to kill 1,000 of them!
Tang Li Xue even almost failed to dodge the attacks from several skeletons and dried corpses because of that sudden quest.
For the first time, their broken weapons finally managed to tear Tang Li Xue's black cloak and white robe, then grazed her snow-white skin, leaving a few scratches on her upper arm, shoulder, and left thigh.
Then Tang Li Xue also realized another horrible truth…
Her [High-Speed Regeneration] did not help her heal the wound like usual!
It seems even her [High-Speed Regeneration] and most of her other skills could not work in Inheritance Ground Tablet!
Tang Li Xue's expression turned even more solemn.
'Damn it! Doesn't it mean if I got fatally injured here, I can only depend on my [Talisman of Regeneration]?! This is really bad! It takes quite a long time for [Talisman of Regeneration] to recover any internal or severe wounds. If I got wounded here in the middle of these evil spirits encirclement, I would certainly die!' Tang Li Xue pondered carefully in her mind.
It did not take long for Tang Li Xue to decide to stop holding back and used her Flame of Pride since she could no longer afford to keep her Flame of Pride as secret in this life-threatening situation.
It was not like anyone could see her using Flame of Pride here anyway.
Deep-blue-colored flame burst out from Tang Li Xue's slender figure.
Several armored skeletons and dried corpses near her burned to nothingness in that instant.
"All right… I must admit that it feels really good to burn enemies with my Flame of Pride!" Tang Li Xue muttered while giggled happily.
Tang Li Xue carefully controlled the deep-blue Flame of Pride and condensed a pair of deep-blue Flame wings on her back.
Tang Li Xue flapped the deep-blue [Phoenix Wing] on her back to fly, but no matter how hard she flaps her [Phoenix Wing], her body still stayed on the ground.
"Sigh… As I expected, it seems no one can fly in Inheritance Ground Tablet even with a pair of wings. It is really unfortunate…" Tang Li Xue muttered in disappointment.
Tang Li Xue thought that she could find the direction easier if she could fly and look at the Inheritance Ground Tablet from above, but it seems she was still too naïve.
How could the owner or creator of Inheritance Ground Tablet let all the trial entrants escape from the inheritance trial as they liked by flying?!
Since Tang Li Xue could not use her [Phoenix Wing] on her back to fly, then she decided to use it for fighting!
When another wave of armored skeletons and dried corpses charged toward her from all directions, Tang Li Xue suddenly spun her body, and the deep-blue [Phoenix Wing] on her back scorched several skeletons and dried corpses to nothingness.
Tang Li Xue glanced at the kill count in her quest log to see how many Lesser Evil Spirits she had killed.
Tang Li Xue suddenly felt that she lost all of her motivation and did not want to do this anymore…
Tang Li Xue took a deep breath and thought: 'All right, cheer up Tang Li Xue! You have managed to slay 23 Lesser Evil Spirits in less than one minute! 1000 Lesser Evil Spirits in 6 hours should be easy, right?! There are 360 minutes in 6 hours after all! Logically speaking, if I can slay 23 Lesser Evil Spirits every minute, I can complete the quest in less than 1 hour, right?!'
After she pondered it for a few moments, her topaz blue eyes lit up in excitement, and she started to use her deep-blue Flame of Pride to kill the skeletons and dried corpses in a frenzied manner.
With one wave of her hand, Tang Li Xue created a deep-blue firewall to burn all the skeletons and dried corpses in front of her at once.
Tang Li Xue took a few moments of that time when the skeletons and dried corpses could not approach her to compress her Flame of Pride until it formed a small deep-blue fireball on the top of her palm that emitting extremely high temperature.
Then she threw the compressed deep-blue fireball onto the direction where the skeletons and dried corpses were the most packed.
A devastating explosion destroyed many skeletons and dried corpses into nothingness in an instant, and Tang Li Xue's deep-blue Flame of Pride started to spread around, then burning the nearby skeletons and dried corpses!
It did not take long before those burning skeletons and dried corpses were reduced to nothingness by the extremely hot Flame of Pride.
Tang Li Xue kept using her Flame of Pride to kill the armored skeletons and dried corpses. It only took her less than 5 minutes to kill more than 100 of them.
Tang Li Xue thought she could kill 1000 Lesser Evil Spirits easily in less than 1 hour if she kept doing it like this, but unfortunately for her, the armored skeletons and dried corpses started to do something out of her expectation right now.
The armies of armored skeletons and dried corpses stopped rushing toward Tang Li Xue and started to congregate in one spot.
"What are they doing?" Tang Li Xue murmured while frowned deeply in confusion.
Tang Li Xue's bad feeling got stronger when she saw that the armies of armored skeletons and dried corpses started to blend and fuse into something much more horrible.
Tang Li Xue decided to not wait for them to finish the process and attacked her fiercely with her Flame of Pride!
Tang Li Xue took a deep breath and blew a large amount of deep-blue Flame of Pride toward the armies of armored skeletons and dried corpses that still in the process of fusing themselves.
The extremely hot deep-blue Flame of Pride flooded the armies of armored skeletons and dried corpses and swallowed them into the sea of deep-blue flames in only a few seconds.
Logically, Tang Li Xue should have killed at least 30 to 50 armored skeletons and dried corpses at once with her [Fire Breath], but when she glanced at her kill count in her quest notification…
"Impossible! How could I fail to kill even one of them with my [Fire Breath]?!" Tang Li Xue exclaimed in surprise and disbelief.
But she immediately understood the reason for that after she saw a more than 10 meters tall armored giant skeleton with a terrifying ominous aura rise from the middle of the deep-blue flames' sea.
"What the hell is that creature…?!" Tang Li Xue widened her eyes in shock.
The giant armored skeleton stared menacingly at Tang Li Xue. It did not have any eyes, but a pair of red lights inside its skull made Tang Li Xue shuddered a bit in fear.
The giant armored skeleton dropped its jawbone and roared out loud.
Tang Li Xue quickly closed her ears, but she still felt very uncomfortable, and her consciousness started to fade away.
The roar from the giant armored skeleton was not a sound attack like Instructor Mei Lan's divine ability, but a mental attack that assaulted its target's soul directly!
While Tang Li Xue was still staggered and stunned by its mental attack, the giant armored skeleton jumped out from the sea of deep-blue flame and pounced toward Tang Li Xue while brandished the giant saber in its grasp toward her!
