Chapter 1295: The Forbidden Curse at the Bottom of the Sea
Demon pets had always been the Spirit Race’s closest companions. Depending on the Spirit Race clansman’s bloodline attribute, a matching demon pet would be chosen for them at birth.
If a demon pet’s bloodline was compatible with its master’s, the master’s strength would naturally increase tremendously; a critical boost when fighting against powerful enemies.
That was why Spirit Race clansmen based their preferences for demon pets on their bloodline attributes.
Apparently, there were a lot of particulars one should take into consideration when picking a demon pet.
As a member of the Spirit Race, a demon pet was the most critical factor of one’s strength. The power of a demon pet could be categorized into ranks just like a martial practitioner, and the higher the rank, the higher potential for growth a demon pet possessed.
Qin Lie was aware that only Spirit Race clansmen with two or more bloodline attributes were allowed to pick higher ranking demon pets.
Most Spirit Race clansmen only had one bloodline attribute. Therefore, their choices were limited.
Back when he was traversing through the abyss passageway, the Eight-eyed Demon Spirit’s bloodline in his veins had stirred in a way that made him feel like he had returned home.
At the time, he had immediately thought that the Eight-eyed Demon Spirit might be born from the abyss passageway.
He had even asked Lieyan Yang earlier about this, and Lieyan Yang had confirmed that the abyss passageway sometimes birthed life.
According to Lieyan Yang, the creatures born from the abyss passageway were extremely rare and few in number. The Spirit Race clansmen captured them so they could turn them into their personal demon pets.
Combining that knowledge and his own strange feelings while he was traversing the abyss passageway, Qin Lie was certain that the strange creature Lieyan Yang spoke of was none other than the Eight-eyed Demon Spirit.
“The Eight Eyed Demon Spirit is one of our highest ranked demon pets,” Indigo repeated again in affirmation.
Pleasantly surprised, Qin Lie asked, “I heard that the Eight-eyed Demon Spirit is born from the abyss passageway, is that right?”
“That sounds about right,” Indigo replied.
“Doesn’t that mean the Eight-eyed Demon Spirit is actually a kind of Abyss Devil?” Qin Lie asked in astonishment.
“I’m not too sure myself.” Indigo thought for a moment before replying, “I haven’t officially become the chief of the Spirit Race yet, and demon pets are our most well-guarded secrets. That’s why my knowledge of demon pets is still limited.”
Qin Lie pondered for a moment before asking, “How much do you know about the Eight-eyed Demon Spirit?”
“The Eight-eyed Demon Spirit’s bloodline is capable of opening spatial doors. In the past, its ability has enabled my mother to travel to all sorts of realms.” Indigo thought seriously for a moment before asking, “Were you using the Eight-eyed Demon Spirit’s bloodline when you created the star door and sent us out of the Origin World?”
Qin Lie admitted without hesitation, “That’s right.”
“The abyss channel at the bottom of the sea of the Land of Chaos is actually a creation of the Eight-eyed Demon Spirit’s bloodline power. It is a star door, a star door that’s actually connected to the abyss channels.” Indigo explained.
“A star door?” Qin Lie looked surprised.
“Mn, it’s almost the same as your star door, except stronger because the Eight-eyed Demon Spirit had created it while it was rank nine. That’s why that star door still exists to this day. That being said, it’s only a matter of time before that staroor disappears one day,” Indigo said.
Qin Lie’s eyes lit up. “What other strange bloodline abilities do the Eight-eyed Demon Spirits have except Star Door?”
Indigo suddenly smiled mischievously at Qin Lie before replying, “I’m not telling you right now. When you’ve reached rank eight, you should automatically awaken its second core ability.”
“Another core ability,” Qin Lie said excitedly.
“Mn! I think you’ll like it!” Indigo said.
Qin Lie nodded and didn’t ask further against Indigo’s wishes. He continued to maintain the dark shield and sank deeper into the sea.
Thanks to the Curse Progenitor’s worldly restriction curse, there weren’t many powerful sea beasts in the deep sea of the Land of Chaos.
Those rare few sea beasts that were slightly stronger than normal escaped the second they sensed the presence of Qin Lie’s Soul Beast avatar.
As a result, Qin Lie met no resistance whatsoever as he travelled in a straight line, straight for the abyss channel.
Just when he was hundreds of kilometers or so away from the abyss channel, Qin Lie suddenly slowed down with a frown on his face.
“What’s wrong?” Indigo asked.
“There’re experts camped in that place,” Qin Lie said.
“Are they strong?” Indigo asked worriedly. “I’m in a hurry to head home, actually.”
“I don’t think it’ll delay you.” Qin Lie shook his head, but his expression turned colder and colder.
When his true self was adventuring inside the Origin World, his Soul Beast avatar had spent most of its time at Boluo Realm or the Frost Desolation Abyss.
He was quite well-informed about the things happening in the Land of Chaos during that period.
He knew that the six great forces had sent Han Qian to sweep through the Land of Chaos.
He also knew that the six great forces had shredded the ancient promise not to send Void Realm experts into the Land of Chaos.
Currently, the nine Silver rank forces that used to rule the Land of Chaos only existed in name.
Ninth Heaven had sent over their experts to take over the Land of Chaos and all five continents for themselves.
The ore veins, the spirit fields, the natural resources; Ninth Heaven had claimed everything for themselves.
Right now, all low rank martial practitioners of the nine Silver rank forces were working as Ninth Heaven’s mine slaves.
They had no choice but to obey in order to survive.
The Ruined Lands was the only place the experts of Ninth Heaven had avoided provoking recklessly. They were still searching everywhere for the realm entrance that lead to Boluo Realm.
There were some experts who were extremely interested in the abyss channel. They had purposely come over from Central World just to examine the abyss channel in full detail again and again.
At first, Qin Lie thought that these people had left already. After all, it had been a very long time since they arrived.
He seriously didn’t expect to find an encampment near the abyss channel still.
“These people… what on Spirit Realm are they planning to do?” Qin Lie murmured to himself.
The dark shield that enveloped him grew darker and darker. Soon, his presence and Indigo’s were completely concealed.
They slowly approached their destination while looking like they had gone invisible.
A while later, a beautiful landscape of colorful corals appeared at the distance. The figures holding light shields and floating right above the beautiful corals were incredibly conspicuous.
They were the experts encamped at this place.
Beautifully rays of light occasionally shot out from between the corals. They covered the entire bottom of the sea in light.
“Eh!” Qin Lie exclaimed immediately after a rough glance, “It’s the forbidden curse laid down by the Curse Progenitor!”
“The Curse Progenitor’s been dead for more than ten thousand years, but the forbidden curse he had constructed is still suppressing the abyss channel to this day.”
“If we manage to unlock the secrets of the diagrams that make up this forbidden curse, our artifact forging skills will improve beyond our imagination!”
“Sigh, I’ve been studying them for three years already, but I still have no clue what it’s about.”
The artificers of the six great forces exchanged words with each other occasionally while expressing their admiration at the Curse Progenitor’s work.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
