Chapter 429 The Amazing Inheritance of the Evil Ghost Emperor!
Chapter 429 The Amazing Inheritance of the Evil Ghost Emperor!
No one among the Human Race or Beast Race could ever wield the power of the Undead Race.
The Evil Ghost Emperor was probably the only exception for that.
For thousands of years, the Evil Ghost Emperor contributed a lot to the war against the Undead Race at the Central Continent.
On contrary to his title as Evil Ghost Emperor, his attitude and behavior were actually far from evil. He confronted the Undead Race's armies so many times and saved countless people on the Central Continent with his armies of living corpses and skeletons.
Even though the Undead Race higher-up prioritized hunting down the Evil Ghost Emperor, but no one could kill him until the end.
The Evil Ghost Emperor died not because he got killed by anyone but because his lifespan was over.
When his lifespan was almost over, the Evil Ghost Emperor still did not have any offspring because he was always too busy with his research about the powers and dark arts of the Undead Race, so he never married in his entire life.
The Evil Ghost Emperor decided to leave his inheritance in his hometown, Lightwind Continent, in this Inheritance Ground Tablet, so the young generation in Lightwind Continent could follow his step and become strong enough to face Undead Race in the future.
Tang Li Xue slowly opened her eyes after she processed all of the information in her mind, but she was still stunned for a while in awe.
Tang Li Xue did not inherit the memories of Evil Ghost Emperor, perhaps because the Evil Ghost Emperor himself was worried that the consciousness of the younger generation who obtained his inheritance would not be strong enough to handle it.
The information in Tang Li Xue's mind was only about Evil Ghost Emperor's short history, but that was only the least important among all of the information she got from the black wand.
There was still the information about the black wand in her grasp and the instruction on how to wield it properly!
"Rank 832nd in Heavenly Treasure Ranking List… [Scepter of Disaster]…" Tang Li Xue slowly muttered in amazement.
Only 1,000 best of the best treasures since ancient time until now could get Immortal World's Heavenly Law recognition and enter Heavenly Treasure Ranking List. The black wand in Tang Li Xue's grasp was exactly one of those 1,000 best Heavenly Treasures in Immortal World!
Even Tang Li Xue's famous Inscription master, Teacher Li Wei, could not create any treasure at the level of Heavenly Treasures!
Of course, this [Scepter of Disaster] was not created by Evil Ghost Emperor himself…
In fact, this [Scepter of Disaster] was one of the most important treasures from Undead Race, and the Evil Ghost Emperor actually stole it from them.
This [Scepter of Disaster] was so powerful beyond belief, and it has so many functions. Even Evil Ghost Emperor himself was only able to discover some of its functions through his lifelong research.
Such as producing and controlling Death Qi, storing the corpses and souls of dead creatures, greatly enhanced dark arts and curse spells, and many more…
Other than that, Tang Li Xue also got Evil Ghost Emperor's overpowered cultivation manual, [Death Revelation Sutra] along with many dark arts and curse spells.
Unfortunately, Tang Li Xue did not have any plan to abandon her current cultivation manual, [Four Mythical Guardian Beast Art], and changed it into [Death Revelation Sutra].
Without cultivating [Death Revelation Sutra], Tang Li Xue would not have Death Qi in her Dantian, and she could not use all of the dark arts and curse spells from Evil Ghost Emperor's inheritance.
It was such a pity since [Death Revelation Sutra] was a very powerful cultivation manual, but Tang Li Xue has three strong reasons why she decided to not cultivate it.
First, the requirement to cultivate [Death Revelation Sutra] was too harsh. Actually, Tang Li Xue could no longer cultivate it since she was already cultivating [Four Mythical Guardian Beast Art].
If she really wanted to cultivate [Death Revelation Sutra], Tang Li Xue must cripple her Dantian first and destroyed the cultivation foundation that she built with [Four Mythical Guardian Beast Art], then start all over again, just like Evil Ghost Emperor.
Second, [Death Revelation Sutra] was designed for Human Race to cultivate, while Tang Li Xue was a beast. Although she currently has Dantian like a human, but there was no guarantee that [Death Revelation Sutra] would suitable for her.
But [Four Mythical Guardian Beast Art] was different. It was the cultivation manual derived from Four Mythical Guardian Beast if Tang Li Xue cultivated [Four Mythical Guardian Beast Art] until she reached Nascent Soul Stage, she would have four nascent souls with the form of Four Mythical Guardian Beasts!
Third, the cultivators who cultivated this [Death Revelation Sutra] must continue refining Death Qi in his or her Dantian to increase their cultivation, and Death Qi itself was the ominous energy from the dead creatures. In short, all of the creatures would emanate Death Qi after they have died.
Thus, all of the cultivators other than from Undead Race who cultivated Death Qi would surely have a ghastly appearance!
As someone who has a peerless stunning beauty appearance, how could Tang Li Xue accept that?!
Tang Li Xue already has such a ghastly appearance in her previous life because of her incurable illness, so of course, she did not want her appearance to become like that again in this lifetime.
Other than [Scepter of Disaster] and [Death Revelation Sutra], there was one more important inheritance from Evil Ghost Emperor imprinted in Tang Li Xue's mind.
For Tang Li Xue, this third inheritance might be the most important one for her and the one she needed the most right now.
Ancient Martial Art Technique, [Essence Devouring Technique]…
This [Essence Devouring Technique] was a very evil Ancient Martial Art Technique. After mastering it, the cultivator could devour all kinds of energy from their opponents and convert it for their own use.
For example, if Tang Li Xue mastered [Essence Devouring Technique], she could devour enemy's Qi, life essence, Vitality Energy, and whatsoever, then convert it to increase her own cultivation, or she could also use it to recover her own Qi and Vitality Energy.
Of course, this [Essence Devouring Technique] also has several shortcomings even though it was a very OP Ancient Martial Art Technique.
First, there must be physical contact between the user and the target for this [Essence Devouring Technique] to work.
However, there was a lot of ambiguity about the meaning of this 'physical contact' in the [Essence Devouring Technique].
For some reason, Tang Li Xue felt that this [Essence Devouring Technique] could be combined with her [Energy Manipulation] divine ability to make it much more fearsome since everything she made from [Energy Manipulation] seems could be counted as her body part too.
Second, the user could increase their own cultivation really fast by using this [Essence Devouring Technique] to devour the energy from another creature, but it could also make the foundation of their cultivation became not solid enough.
If the foundation of their cultivation was not solid enough, any cultivator would find it harder to break through to the higher stage in the future.
Fortunately, Tang Li Xue's evolution and cultivation breakthrough were all managed by her system, so she did not need to worry about it at all.
Tang Li Xue herself probably did not even have any clue about what Foundation of Cultivation was?!
If someone asked her about it, she probably asked back if the Foundation of Cultivation can be eaten or not...
Third, there were many impurities mixed in the energy devoured from the opponent. If those impurities accumulated too much in the body of any cultivator, it would become a fatal poison that hindering any cultivator from breakthrough to a higher stage later on.
It could even make their cultivation deviate, and the consequence would be really fatal. That cultivator could even lose his or her life if that really happened!
But then again... Tang Li Xue did not need to worry about that since any poison or impurities would be instantly purified or burned by her [Imperial Moon Fox] and [Pure Sun Dragon] bloodlines.
In short, this [Essence Devouring Technique] fit so perfectly with Tang Li Xue that she could not even find any drawback from mastering or using it.
Tang Li Xue inhaled deeply and murmured: "Well... I only have 1,000 Deity Coins to comprehend [Yin and Yang Chaotic Formula]... But let's check the price to comprehend this [Essence Devouring Technique] first. At Least, I can accumulate more Deity Coins to learn it later."
[1st Inheritance Trial Quest Completed!]
[Gained: Level +1, Stat Point+100 (+25), Skill Point+15(+4), 80(+20) Deity Coins]
[Congratulation! Your cultivation level achieved Rank 3 Acupuncture Opening Stage! All Stats +500]
[Do you want to comprehend [Essence Devouring Technique] with cost 500 Deity Coins? Yes/No]
"Oh? 500 Deity Coins, huh... It is not that expensive for such an OP Ancient Martial Art Technique... I hope I can collect 500 Deity Coins in this one month." Tang Li Xue said as she hoped to get more quests from her system in this Inheritance Ground Tablet, so she could accumulate 500 Deity Coins more.
Tang Li Xue decided not to recklessly aim for another inheritance. She rested in this ancient temple for two days to recover her injuries, stamina, and Qi first.
She was chased by the core disciples from the Five Virtuous Sect, climbed up the trial staircase to reach the Peak of Cang Yang Mountain, then fought with so many dried corpses and skeletons nonstop after all.
After she rested long enough and went back to her optimum condition, Tang Li Xue came out from the ancient temple and began to search for another inheritance.
There were so many inheritances from weaker cultivators to powerful cultivators in this Inheritance Ground Tablet, but Tang Li Xue only has a limited time here.
Tang Li Xue's problem right now was how to find the best inheritance in this Inheritance Ground Tablet.
Just when Tang Li Xue felt confused about where she would head to find the high-tier inheritance like this Evil Ghost Emperor or even better...
"Nyaaa~!" Little Loki meowed as it jumped down from Tang Li Xue's shoulder, then it headed toward the southeast.
"Little Loki! Where are you going?! It is too dangerous here, so you must always stick near with me!" Tang Li Xue rebuked Little Loki while she quickly chased after it.
It did not take long for Tang Li Xue to catch up with Little Loki, and she quickly hugged Little Loki, so it would not wander around randomly anymore.
Little Loki rolled its third eye and quickly meowed again while pointed its tiny paw toward the southeast.
"You are asking me to go there? Can you sense something you need from there?" Tang Li Xue asked in puzzlement.
Little Loki shook its tiny furry head.
Tang Li Xue became even more puzzled by Little Loki's reply and asked again: "What do you mean then? I really do not understand it."
Little Loki pointed its tiny paw toward Tang Li Xue before it pointed again toward the southeast.
"Eh? I get it! So you are saying that there is something good for me there?" Tang Li Xue asked as her topaz blue eyes shone brighter in realization.
