It was strange considering how much had changed in just a few short days of cultivating and inheriting most of his innate techniques.
Bai Xue was also on the same boat as him. While she jumped on top of his shoulders, she began to speak, "Will you also start cultivating the Soul Devourer this time around? You need a soul that's a realm higher than your current cultivation correct?"
She was speaking at a volume that only the two of them could hear.
Bai Xue and w.a.n.g Ling do not hide anything in regards to their cultivation. This was especially so in what they need. They were partners and they helped one another to get what they need to improve.
It was a shallow relations.h.i.+p but this simple act of sharing every bit of information shows their trust with one another. Aside from any sensitive topic of their past, the two were pretty open about many things.
"I just need a single soul, but it can't be any higher than a Minor Saint. I'll get devoured by the soul if it was stronger than a Minor Saint."
"Okay, let me just confirm this. Do you need the blood of the beasts or any other race you kill?"
"No, why do you ask?"
Bai Xue smiled, "That's great, I get its blood essence then. Hehe, I'll be able to use [Blood Pillage] without the presence of the Phoenix's blood in the external world. Finally, I won't need to just munch on cores."
w.a.n.g Ling finally understood why she was asking him. Blood Pillage refers to an innate technique Bai Xue inherited when she was trapped inside the ball of blood.
Back in the White Dragon Valley, she used the said skill to drain any lifeform of their blood and life essence while using the innate superiority of the Phoenix's blood to suppress everyone who approached her.
However, after Bai Xue got out of the ball of blood and absorbed the Phoenix blood into her system. She lost that ability indefinitely. It was such a disappointment after losing such an overpowered innate ability.
Thankfully, that innate technique does not seem to have been lost completely.
After Bai Xue a.s.similated most of the Frost Dragon's blood and enriched her pool of blood essence. She inherited memories regarding the Blood Pillage innate technique.
This information made Bai Xue extremely happy, but when she and w.a.n.g Ling went to test it out in some random beast. They were disappointed to see the innate technique cannot be used, at least temporarily.
The innate technique can only be unlocked fully when Bai Xue a.s.similates the bloodline of the Frost Dragon completely. It took her a while but she finally did so that day when w.a.n.g Ling said what the effects of his Light Bearer innate technique was.
The pressure of being left out by the person who was by your side made her a.s.similate the blood quicker than she would have imagined. Right now, Bai Xue was itching on who she should use it on.
The technique had no limitations other than taking longer to absorb the blood essence of those stronger beings. However, other than that, there was no other limitations.
Blood Pillage was a technique that will turn the blood essence of others as nutrition without meeting a problem. It was such a wonderful technique that anyone would find it hard not to be jealous of it.
But aside from the perverted and jealousy-inducing effects of the Blood Pillage. w.a.n.g Ling had a question pop up in his head after hearing of how Bai Xue managed to unlock the said technique.
[Did the Blood Pillage awakened when the Phoenix bloodline entered her system? Considering her mysterious bloodline already allows her to absorb every of the Four Deities, does that mean unlocking her full potential means more blood of the Four Deities?]
w.a.n.g Ling paused his thought process and rubbed his glabella for the future headache he and Bai Xue will face. If his hypothesis was correct, then that means they will need to face more of the Four Deities.
A single Frost Dragon had already marked his soul after he killed it. Bai Xue seemed to have forgotten about the Soul Mark because w.a.n.g Ling had not mentioned it before, but the Soul Mark has already etched itself on w.a.n.g Ling's soul.
No one will be able to take that soul mark away other than another dragon. Meaning, w.a.n.g Ling is going to become the target of every Dragon they will face later in the future.
w.a.n.g Ling sighed and Bai Xue noticed this and asked him what was wrong.
"It's a long story, I'll tell you about it later."
w.a.n.g Ling and his group reached the edge of the Mountain's peak and stopped. Need not to needlessly go and meet them in front of the cave. They only need to wait at the peak for w.a.n.g Hong's and Qigang's return.
They waited and soon saw saints flying away. Many had a smile plastered on their faces while some were frowning. Others were fighting others were just watching them fight.
This was the sight after a raid ends. Those who benefited will face two endings after getting out of the tomb. First, they will walk away without a problem, second, they will be killed or almost killed by others.
Other occurrences could take place like being mark by others, carrying a grudge and many more headache-inducing problems. But all of that was normal.
Facing the Jealousy of others when you manage to gain benefits was a normal occurrence. Grudges formed from conflict inside the tomb was no different as well.
w.a.n.g Ling had experienced enough tomb raids to know this much. Fun fact, w.a.n.g Ling gained at least half of his previous enemies after a tomb raid. Why this was so, it was simply because he called too many of other people's kin and disciples.
[Good times.] w.a.n.g Ling thought to himself and chortled. While he was chuckling while reminiscing of good times. The ground rumbled and towering ice shards erupted from somewhere below the peak.
w.a.n.g Ling saw flames burning as two figures rose into the air and two figures battling one another appeared above the sky.
Squinting his eyes, w.a.n.g Ling could make out the ident.i.ties of those two as the young master of the Mu Clan, Mu Feng and the lady always with w.a.n.g Hong, QingBiao.
QingBiao's countenance carried a cold and indifferent expression while her body was covered in frosts. Her qi was carrying the terrifying ability to freeze those who get on her way.
On the opposite of her was Mu Feng who was using a halberd against QingBiao. w.a.n.g Ling raised an eyebrow upon seeing Mu Feng, after all, he had already mastered his halberd to the point it was emitting Halberd Intent.
"Oh, this is interesting." w.a.n.g Ling remarked. w.a.n.g Ling then run-up to the mountain peak and sat on the protruding roots of the Crimson Flower Tree. He made sure to find a good seat to watch a show.
"Have some of this." Bai Xue pa.s.sed a jar of wine to him and she got out of her shoulder. Taking a seat on her lap, Bai Xue looked up and began to watch two youths clas.h.i.+ng in what looked like a fight to the death.
"Who do you think will win?" Bai Xue asked w.a.n.g Ling.
"Their cultivation is the same, half-step Grand Saint… but I will have to go for QingBiao. She's quite good at using her qi… oh, would you look at that, she's already gunning for it, I guess QingBiao will win this thing."
w.a.n.g Ling and Bai Xue started watching the fight as if it was natural. Why? It was because they were bored.
