Chapter 473: Sapphire Armored Wasps!
Chapter 473: Sapphire Armored Wasps!
When Tang Li Xue got closer to the towering tree, she instantly felt refreshed, joyous, and peaceful.
It was as if the towering tree in front of her washed every inch of her body with holy baptism.
Tang Li Xue felt a great urge to worship the towering world tree in great reverence.
Little Loki frowned deeply as it also realized the abnormal holy aura emitting by the towering world tree that could easily affect any creature's mind if they approached it carelessly.
Little Loki tapped Tang Li Xue's right shoulder again with its paw and the thin invisible energy seeped into Tang Li Xue's body to awaken her from the influence of holy aura from the towering world tree.
Tang Li Xue immediately awoke from her semi-conscious state. She shook her head to clear her mind and exclaimed in shock: "What the hell is happening just now? Don't tell me this huge tree has some kind of hypnotic power?! That is really scary!"
Tang Li Xue felt hesitant for a few moments as she pondered if she should continue her way to find the treasure at the towering world tree in front of her or should she just give up right now.
Anyway, her life was still more precious than any precious treasure, since she would never be able to enjoy the treasure if she lost her life in the end.
Just when Tang Li Xue was hesitating, Little Loki suddenly called her.
"Nyawww~!" Little Loki patted its furry chest proudly, then pointed its furry paw forward.
It seemed Little Loki wanted to tell Tang Li Xue to not worry since it was with her, and it could help her to cope up with any danger, including the influence from the towering world tree.
Tang Li Xue giggled as she took Little Loki from her right shoulder and kissed its forehead gently.
"All right, my cute little escort... Then I will be counting on you, okay?" Tang Li Xue said as she hugged Little Loki in her warm embrace and patted its tiny furry head gently.
Little Loki purred and closed its eyes in comfort when Tang Li Xue's soft smooth hand gently caressed its black fur.
Tang Li Xue proceed toward the towering world tree as she agilely jumped from one world tree's root to another, but she still kept her vigilant at maximum.
Although Little Loki said that it could protect her from any harm, but she still did not want to gamble her life and Little Loki's life for the precious treasure hidden here.
In short, she already decided to give up and retreat from this place if she met something exceedingly strange or dangerous later.
Her harvest in this Inheritance Ground Tablet was quite bountiful already anyway, and her strength already increased by leap and bound.
If she had enough time to digest all of her harvest in this Inheritance Ground Tablet, Tang Li Xue was quite sure that she could get a quite satisfying result in Fox Hunting Festival later.
As Tang Li Xue got closer and closer to the towering world tree, the more awe-inspiring it looked.
dα-|m Even though the towering world tree looked so clear and so close to Tang Li Xue before, but she actually still need more than one hour of running to reach right under the towering world tree.
Right now, Tang Li Xue felt like an ant standing under the giant Banyan Tree.
The trunk of the towering world tree formed a gigantic spiral, and the crown of the towering world tree pierced into the cloud on the skies.
"This tree looks very impressive. I hope we can really find some valuable treasures here." Tang Li Xue muttered as she raised her head to look at the towering world tree.
Tang Li Xue jumped onto the towering world tree's spiral trunk without any hesitation and swiftly ran on the tree trunk toward the top of the towering world tree.
But before she could climb far enough, Tang Li Xue sensed something quick flew toward her direction.
Tang Li Xue nimbly jumped onto the narrow space at the spiral tree trunk to hide while peeking to check at the creatures that coming toward her.
"Those are... bees? No, that should be a group of giant wasps. Tsk, I knew this would not be that easy!" Tang Li Xue murmured with a displeased tone.
Each of those wasps was almost as big as Tang Li Xue herself, and their body was covered with sapphire armor.
Moreover, their flying speed was very high, and they moved in an orderly manner like one single entity.
Just one look and Tang Li Xue already could easily judge that these Sapphire Armored Wasps were not something easy to deal with.
Let alone these Sapphire Armored Wasps definitely has more than this one group since their nest should be around this towering world tree.
Tang Li Xue took a deep breath and tried to call softly: "System... Can you give me a quest or mission?"
Unfortunately, Tang Li Xue's system still did not give her any response at this time.
Actually, Tang Li Xue already tried to trigger some quest at colorful flower field, at the meadow, and when she was first staring at this towering world tree, but her system still did not give her any response.
It means that the system judged that Tang Li Xue could easily pass any trouble here with her current ability... or she has something... or she could use some clever words to easily pass those places without any problem.
In short, Tang Li Xue's system would never give her any quest or mission with a loophole for her to use.
As long as Tang Li Xue still has an easy way to pass that problem, then the quest would not be given.
Of course, Tang Li Xue already knew that fact after trying to trigger any quest so many times until now: "Sigh... What a cheapskate system! What's wrong with giving me some free level once in a while?!"
After calming down, Tang Li Xue started to rack her brain to think of some way.
"Since System did not give me any quest, does it mean I have an easy way to deal with these Sapphire Wasps without fighting them just like when I am facing the Flower Fairy Queen and that fat bird? But... how?" Tang Li Xue muttered while biting her pink lips.
Tang Li Xue reached her slender hand toward her space pouch and took out [Seven-Colored Blossom Flower] from her space pouch.
"Should I use this [Seven-Colored Blossom Flower] again? Show it toward them to let them let us pass? It should not be, right? Oh, well... I will just hold it, just in case if something similar will happen like when we are facing that fat bird." Tang Li Xue pondered carefully.
After considering it for a while, Tang Li Xue decided to just proceed carefully as usual, but she would hide if some groups of Sapphire Armored Wasps approached her.
Because of that, her speed once again reduced drastically.
If Tang Li Xue climbed with her full speed, she could reach the top of the towering world tree in less than half a day. But now, she still did not reach the top yet even after a few days had passed.
Thankfully, she finally reached the top on the fifth day after playing hide and seek with the Sapphire Armored Wasps until she was almost running out of her patience, but her time to stay in Inheritance Ground Tablet was almost run out because of that.
However, Tang Li Xue's problem was not over yet like what she had hoped for.
On the contrary, she was met with a much bigger obstacle right now.
A Gargantuan Sapphire Wasp Hive!
There were thousands... No, maybe tens of thousands of Sapphire Armored Wasps there!
"Holy... Mother... How the hell I can pass that thing?!" Tang Li Xue almost wanted to blurt out some vulgar curses when she saw the Gargantuan Sapphire Wasp Hive.
She was already carefully enough on her way to avoid one or two groups of Sapphire Armored Wasps on her way, but here... there were hundreds of groups of Sapphire Armored Wasps!
In contrast with Tang Li Xue's despair look, Little Loki, who sat on the top of Tang Li Xue's right shoulder showed a very excited expression.
"Nyaaaan~!!! Nyaw, nyaw, meow..." Little Loki started to whisper something to Tang Li Xue's ear.
"Eh, what? You say their royal jelly and honey is a treasure worth much more than any precious herbs! Wait a minute... The wasp does not produce honey or royal jelly, right?" Tang Li Xue asked with a skeptical tone.
Little Loki rolled its third eye in disdain and patiently told Tang Li Xue that Sapphire Wasp Hive only produced a few royal jelly and honey in hundreds of years, but they were very precious since they could change her physique into a powerful one and even make her awaken one Divine Ability.
Tang Li Xue's topaz blue eyes were shining brightly in excitement when she heard Little Loki's explanation.
She could ignore that 'change her physique into a powerful one' since her physique was already quite strong, but awakening one Divine Ability was a different story. It was very tempting for her!
"Their sapphire armor looks beautiful and strong. It should be their special Divine Ability, right? If I can get that Divine Ability and combine it with my [Golden Body], my defense will be impenetrable, right? Uwehehehe..." Tang Li Xue muttered with an excited tone.
Tang Li Xue's [Golden Body] was a powerful defense type Divine Ability, but it could only reduce any damage she received.
In short, she would still receive some damage if she got hit in her [Golden Body] form!
That was the reason why she chose to use her [Ethereal Form] in battle instead.
But if she could combine her [Golden Body] with another armor type divine ability to withstand the damage, then it would be perfect!
[Golden Body] to increase the defense and reduce the damage she received, while the armor type divine ability to protect her body... Then it means she would no longer need to receive any damage!
Moreover, she even has [Arcane Tunic] to protect her body too right now!
