Who would have thought that there would be three sovereign weapons and spring water embedded within the ancient stele? Everyone found what they saw inconceivable, and for a moment, they doubted their eyes.
They were all genius cultivators. Before entering the academy, they were all owners of emperor weapons, including high-quality emperor weapons. As for sovereign weapons, only a few of them had one before. These sovereign weapons served as trump cards that people wouldn't easily reveal. As for spring water, it was extremely rare and was usually treated as a treasure that could increase one's strength. Few of them had any in possession. Thus, everyone coveted the newly found treasures embedded in the stele.
Unfortunately, there were too many people here and too few treasures to share. Thus, Xiang Shaoyun's management skills were put to the test. The three sovereign equipment were respectively a golden sword, a golden armor, and a golden band. This was most definitely a majestic set of sovereign equipment.
The gold cultivators among them burned with desire. Even Tang Longfei's eyes were burning, and he wished for nothing more than to have this set of equipment for himself. But with Xiang Shaoyun present, nobody dared to fight for them. After all, all of them knew that their overlord had the final say.
As for the bottle of spring water, it was actually a bottle of dragon liquid. There was enough in the bottle to produce several thousand drops, enough for the many Emperors present to increase their strength.
One ought to say that these treasures prepared by the academy were indeed suited for these disciples at their current stage.
Xiang Shaoyun studied the treasures in his hand before turning and facing everyone. He said, "I hereby declare that this set of sovereign equipment will be rewarded to the ones who manage to enter the Dragon Phoenix List during this excursion. As for this bottle of dragon liquid, we can share it now.”
Nobody objected. After all, Xiang Shaoyun was already displaying great magnanimity by sharing the dragon liquid. As for the sovereign equipment, he would reward them to the ones who managed to get on the Dragon Phoenix List instead of keeping them for himself. He was indeed a qualified leader.
If someone was still unhappy with this way of handling the treasures, that person most definitely had a problematic mindset.
I will definitely get onto the Dragon Phoenix List! vowed the gold cultivators.
Apart from Xiang Shaoyun and Han Chenfei, the only ones among them who actually had a chance to get onto the Dragon Phoenix List were Tang Longfei, Xuan Yuantian, Mu Qingyu, Wang Xin, Yuan Xuefen, and a few other fifth-stage Dragon Ascension Realm cultivators.
Of them, Xuan Yuantian had the highest chance. He was two years younger than Tang Longfei but was already at the fifth stage. Moreover, he was a rather ambitious person who had once tried fighting for the position of deputy commander. If it wasn't for Xiang Shaoyun's subsequent return that had suppressed his stirring ambitions, he would have likely challenged Tang Longfei eventually.
Speaking of Xuan Yuantian, he was Ouyang Chuanqi's faithful admirer and had only joined the Overlord Legion because Ouyang Chuanqi was in it. Although Xuan Yuantian acknowledged Xiang Shaoyun's strength, he had always felt that Ouyang Chuanqi was stronger, and he thought that Ouyang Chuanqi should instead be their overlord.
In the past, he had suggested that to Ouyang Chuanqi. However, Ouyang Chuanqi reprimanded him for it, so he stopped creating trouble.
Xuan Yuantian greatly coveted the set of sovereign equipment, and he vowed inwardly, I must get on the Dragon Phoenix List. I will see if you will keep your word then, Xiang Shaoyun.
He was still somewhat dissatisfied with Xiang Shaoyun. In his opinion, Xiang Shaoyun was merely paying lip service, but the equipment would ultimately be given to Tang Longfei. Everyone knew how close Tang Longfei was with Xiang Shaoyun.
Naturally, Xiang Shaoyun was unaware of Xuan Yuantian's thoughts, but inwardly, he looked highly upon him. After all, Xuan Yuantian was the owner of a middle-grade eight-star physique. This was a much better physique than Tang Longfei's, and he had a much brighter future.
Xiang Shaoyun would be very happy to see Xuan Yuantian distinguish himself from the others. Each of them was given 10 drops of dragon liquid.
The group was no longer in a rush to go hunt the devilish plants. They settled down in the area and started cultivating in silence.
After all, they had all tempered themselves through numerous battles during the past six months. Their combat experience had increased greatly, and their strength had clearly grown. Even so, they would still grab any opportunity to continue growing. If they slacked, it would only be a matter of time before others surpassed them.
Xiang Shaoyun also selected a spot for himself. However, instead of entering a state of cultivation, he focused on their surroundings, guarding against any sneak attacks. Han Chenfei wanted to talk with Xiang Shaoyun, but after some hesitation, she decided against it.
Perhaps they could have an honest talk after some time had passed and their relationship was no longer as stiff.
Xiang Shaoyun had not increased his cultivation much during the past six months. He had merely pushed his draconic aura from 62 percent to 66 percent. Essentially, he had entered mid sixth-stage from early sixth-stage.
The reason for the slow growth wasn't his slow energy accumulation. Rather, he was intentionally slowing down to temper himself. After all, he had jumped three stages in the Blood Dragon Pool. His foundation had grown somewhat unstable from the rapid growth. After half a year of tempering, his body had fully acclimated to his new strength, and his foundation was now much firmer.
Although he wasn't focused on cultivation, he could still continue absorbing the energy around him rapidly with a mere thought. That was the benefit of comprehending the profundity of powers.
After about half a month, the group ended the short cultivation session. All of them had grown stronger, and they all seemed to be full of vigor and fighting spirit. They then spent their time hunting the devilish plants in the battleground. Everyone's individual points rose rapidly. Of course, some were also unlucky and suffered attacks from powerful devilish plants and were forced to withdraw.
Xiang Shaoyun was not omnipotent. He couldn't possibly take care of everyone. Some were too greedy for achievements without enough strength. It was natural that they would be eliminated.
Xiang Shaoyun was somewhat bewildered by the fact that even after all this time, he had yet to encounter Ouyang Chuanqi. After all, Ouyang Chuanqi was their deputy commander and was strong enough to face the academy's top freaks. If the group could join up with him, their overall strength would increase greatly.
Apart from Ouyang Chuanqi, even Lady Shura was nowhere to be found. He wondered if she had been eliminated. While worrying over them, Xiang Shaoyun encountered a powerful group led by someone he once met. Also within the group was someone who deeply hated him.
"Xiang Shaoyun, you bastard, I'm going to kill you!" a voice filled with hatred rang out.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
