Chapter 430 2nd Inheritance and Hard Difficulty Quest!
Little Loki nodded its tiny furry head rapidly.
Tang Li Xue's eyes were glittering brighter when she saw Little Loki nodded, then she asked again with an excited tone: "Little Loki, can you really sense which direction has the best inheritance?"
Little Loki rolled its third eye again at Tang Li Xue's obliviousness.
How could it know which direction has the best inheritance?! It only pointed in the direction which gave the most delicious smell.
As Taotie, Little Loki should always devour precious treasures or hunt powerful prey to ease its insatiable hunger.
The most delicious smell for Little Loki could only mean it find the precious treasures or... powerful prey for it to consume!
Tang Li Xue thought Little Loki really has the ability to detect the treasures and became even more excited.
She did not hesitate to sprint toward the direction Little Loki pointed to.
It did not take long for her to get out from the graveyard area and entered the area with many green hills.
The contrast between the barren ground in the graveyard area and lush grassy ground in the green hills area was quite strange, but Tang Li Xue did not mind it and kept running past many green hills.
After sprinting leisurely for several hours while feeding Little Loki with many Uncommon Grade beast cores as snacks, Tang Li Xue finally arrived at a gigantic Crystal Palace Tomb.
Tang Li Xue stared at the magnificent Crystal Palace Tomb in awe for a few moments and slowly muttered in amazement: "This is really crazy… I bet the material used to build this Crystal Palace should be really expensive! Ssshhh… I wonder how many spirit stones I can get by selling it?!"
Compared to this grand Crystal Palace Tomb, the Evil Ghost Emperor's ancient stone temple looked too shabby.
Little Loki almost stumbled and fell from Tang Li Xue's shoulder when it heard Tang Li Xue's words.
Little Loki slapped its tiny paw onto its forehead as it thought: 'Do you even know what that palace is made of? It is made purely from spirit stones and then sealed with many complicated arrays, so the Spirit Energy would not disperse! Selling the palace made from pure spirit stones to get spirit stones is a completely brainless thing to do…'
But Little Loki did not bother to waste its effort to tell Tang Li Xue about it. It was not like Tang Li Xue could bring that grand Crystal Palace Tomb back with her anyway.
Little Loki had decided that the fate of this grand Crystal Palace Tomb was to enter its stomach later.
Of course, Little Loki would not greedily devour everything for itself. Firstly, it would let its inexperienced master search for her own fortuitous opportunities inside.
Tang Li Xue carefully observed the exterior of the grand Crystal Palace Tomb to find the gate to enter.
Tang Li Xue must admit that this Crystal Palace Tomb was truly enormous since she needed to spend more than one hour just to find the front gate.
When Tang Li Xue touched the majestic looking gate, suddenly an archaic voice resounded in her mind.
"Fated young one, since you have arrived at my gate, it means you have a fate with me, Heavenly Sword Immortal. BUT having fate and luck is far from enough to get my acknowledgment."
"Talent, comprehension, intelligence, strength, and so on... There are still so many factors that can determine someone's quality other than just fate and luck."
"As the successor of Heavenly Sword Immortal's inheritance, you need to have all of those. I already left several trials to test your overall qualities. The trials will be very dangerous, and you cannot give up halfway."
"Once you decided to enter this gate and take the trials, you will only have two choices, pass all the trials and get my inheritance or die! So, think about it carefully before entering..."
After the archaic voice vanished, the majestic looking gate slowly opened as if it permitted Tang Li Xue to enter.
The dumbfounded Tang Li Xue quickly took several steps back after she heard the archaic voice's warning.
"Wait... What?! Another Trial again?! I have had enough of these trials! Why do I need to pass the trials to get the inheritance?! That is too troublesome!" Tang Li Xue complained while started to ponder her choices carefully.
Little Loki stared at Tang Li Xue with eyes filled with ridicule and thought: 'Do you really think these ancient cultivators are doing charity or something?! They are looking for the right successor to hold their inheritance! These old cultivators spent their entire lives to increase their cultivation and collect precious treasures, so it is not strange that they want to give some trials to look for the best successor.'
Actually, it could not be said that it was all Tang Li Xue's fault for not understand it since most of the Main Characters in the novels she read usually got their fortuitous opportunities too easily, like finding pebbles in the middle of the street.
After a few moments, Tang Li Xue managed to deduce some clues from the previous words of archaic voice and the grand Crystal Palace Tomb.
Just from the owner's name, Heavenly Sword Immortal, and this grand building, Tang Li Xue could already deduce that the owner of this grand Crystal Palace Tomb was on a completely different level than the previous Evil Ghost Emperor.
So, of course, the owner of this grand building would certainly have much higher expectations for his successor than the previous Evil Ghost Emperor.
In short, the trials given by this Heavenly Sword Immortal would probably much more dangerous and harder than the trials she already faced before.
While Tang Li Xue hesitated for a few minutes in front of the already opened gate, Little Loki started to lose its patience at Tang Li Xue's indecision.
'What are you hesitating for?! Do you forget that I am here! Even if there is no way out later, I can easily make it for you! I can even devour this entire tomb in one gulp!' Little Loki thought as it used its teleportation ability to teleport Tang Li Xue a few meters forward and entered the gate.
But Little Loki never planned to help Tang Li Xue pass all the trials since it also wanted Tang Li Xue to gain more experience and became stronger quickly.
When Tang Li Xue entered the grand Crystal Palace Tomb, the gate behind her instantly closed by itself.
"Eh… What happens?!" Tang Li Xue, who was in deep thought before, immediately realized that something was not right.
Unfortunately, it was already too late for her to step out from the grand Crystal Palace Tomb since the gate behind her was not only closed by itself but already disappeared completely.
[Quest: (Heavenly Sword Immortal's Inheritance Trials) Heavenly Sword Immortal was a renowned ancient cultivator hundreds of thousands of years ago, but he suddenly went missing. Become his successor and get his inheritance will be the first crucial step to reach Deity Rank. (1/5)]
[Reward: Level +3 (+1), Stat Point+300 (+75), Skill Point+45(+11), 500(+125) Deity Coins, Comprehension Pill]
Tang Li Xue's eyes almost fell out of its socket when she saw the quest suddenly given by her system, especially when she saw 'first crucial step to reach Deity Rank' words.
When Tang Li Xue read the quest log in her system, the archaic voice echoed again in her mind.
"Congratulation, Fated young one! You have passed my first trial, the trial of courage!"
"The second trial will be a dangerous one, so be careful if you do not want to lose your life!"
"The second trial, the trial of martial art's prowess will commence now!"
Tang Li Xue was stunned silly when she heard that she passed the first trial without even doing anything.
After the archaic voice stopped talking, the surrounding scene quickly became blurry, and Tang Li Xue suddenly found herself in the middle of a big closed room.
She was surrounded by thick crystal walls, and the surrounding crystal walls were engraved with mysterious ancient murals.
Tang Li Xue's pink lips twitched violently in annoyance. She did not even have any time to think about what happened since everything happened too quickly and so suddenly.
When Tang Li Xue was wondering what this second trial was about, a transparent man abruptly jumped out from the mysterious ancient murals engraved on the crystal wall in front of her.
The body of this transparent man looked as if it was made from the crystal, and it wielded a crystal sword as its weapon.
" Sigh... So, I only need to defeat this crystal man, right? I hope it is not too powerful..." Tang Li Xue muttered while sighed in relief.
Little Loki took a glance at the mysterious ancient murals engraved on the crystal wall and immediately found that this martial art's prowess trial was surely not as simple as Tang Li Xue's think, since the mysterious ancient murals looked like a set of sword martial arts technique.
But before Little Loki has the time to warn Tang Li Xue about it, the transparent man thrust the crystal sword on its grasp toward Tang Li Xue's neck all of a sudden.
Tang Li Xue swiftly raised her palm and used Transcendence State of [Drifting Cloud Palm] to parry the crystal sword.
Her hands turned blurry in an instant and split into many several afterimages like an illusion.
When Tang Li Xue smacked the blunt side of the crystal sword with her palm, the crystal sword and her palm bounced off.
Both Tang Li Xue and the crystal man took two steps backward because of the impact of the collision.
Tang Li Xue frowned a bit by the crystal man's strength, but she did not think much of it.
"Rank 3 Acupuncture Opening Stage... So, it has the same cultivation, speed, and strength as me. Between the two of us, only the one who has stronger martial art prowess would be the one who will prevail, huh..." Tang Li Xue commented while clicked her tongue.
