Chapter 940 Outline
In an arid land.
Several hundred figures flew at low altitude like a flock of birds.
Zhou Yuan led the group, his eyes scanning the land like an eagle's. Genesis Qi surged around him, ready to react if anything happened.
The Fallen Abyss was full of unknown dangers and was a vile environment. The slightest carelessness could not be allowed.
However, Zhou Yuan was surprised to find that nothing out of the ordinary had happened along the way. Everything seemed to be quite calm.
"Is the danger less because we just entered?" This was not impossible. He had heard that it would become increasingly dangerous as they traveled between the various mini domains.
Although those thoughts swirled in his head, Zhou Yuan did not let his guard down. Slowly finding his own path over the years had forged his cautious nature. He had seen too many occasions where people failed unexpectedly due to carelessness, and there were no shortage of people who had been defeated by his hand.
Therefore, he would not allow himself to make such a mistake.
As the group moved forward quickly, Zhou Yuan carefully sensed the surrounding flow of Genesis Qi.
The place with the highest concentration of Genesis Qi would also house the highest Spiritium. After all, abundant Genesis Qi was one of the necessary conditions for the birth of Spiritium.
Of course, this did not mean that all locations with a high concentration of Genesis Qi would also contain Spiritium. However, the possibility would be much greater.
After traveling for an incense stick, Zhou Yuan found two places with relatively higher concentrations of Genesis Qi. Unfortunately, none contained Spiritium.
Despite this, Zhou Yuan was not disappointed. After all, the nine regions tournament had just begun.
While leading the team in search of highly concentrated Genesis Qi, he suddenly tilted his head and looked in a certain direction. A burst of Genesis Qi rose into the air, forming the shape of a tower before slowly dissipating.
“It's Sister Xiaoling's sign. It seems like they have found a spatial rift,” Yi Qiushui said.
Zhou Yuan nodded as he let out a small sigh of relief. Finding a retreat route was very good news.
"Keep searching!" He waved his hand and accelerated his speed.
Several hundred figures flew into the air. After a few dozen minutes, Zhou Yuan finally found a third area with a high concentration of Genesis Qi.
When he arrived, his eyes immediately lit up.
An extremely tall mountain stood next to a deep crevice. The mountain stood out from its arid surroundings because it was green and full of life. Numerous rays of light rose through the foliage, creating quite a wonderful sight.
"There is definitely Spiritium here!"
Zhou Yuan was overjoyed, but he did not charge blindly. He made a 'be on guard' gesture as he extended his spiritual senses, carefully probing the surrounding area.
After a long time, he withdrew his spiritual senses. Nothing was out of the ordinary.
Only then did Zhou Yuan relax a little. His figure flew forward and soon appeared on the mountain.
He stood on a giant ancient tree as his eyes focused on its trunk. Like fireflies, faint specks of light floated from the bark.
Zhou Yuan could feel an indescribable aura swirling inside the trunk.
He stepped lightly and the giant tree began to break from the top.
As the tree collapsed, a flash of light suddenly shot out like an arrow.
Zhou Yuan, however, was already prepared. He reached for the escaping light and a stream of Genesis Qi rushed out from his hand, catching it and then slowly bringing it before him.
He looked towards his prize and found that the light was slightly transparent. Numerous specks of light dotted its interior like small diamonds. Overall, it looked like an air current containing a flowing liquid. It gave off a very mysterious aura.
Zhou Yuan grabbed the strand of bright air. At that moment, he felt his Divine Dwelling vibrate a little.
It was a feeling of desire.
"So this is Spiritium." A sliver of curiosity flashed in Zhou Yuan's eyes. To incite such a reaction from his Divine Dwelling, it had to be the rumored Spiritium.
Spiritium would form naturally when a numerous combination of strict requirements were met, one of which was a certain level of Genesis Qi concentration.
The strand of Spiritium snaked through Zhou Yuan's fingers as if it had a life of its own.
Zhou Yuan played with him for a while before raising his head. Three hundred people looked at him with heated eyes as if they could not wait any longer.
Zhou Yuan chuckled. He knew that Spiritium had enormous appeal to others. It was an opportunity for them to reach the Celestial Sun stage, a lifelong goal that many of them strived for. To be honest, most of them did not care what grade of Heavenly Sun they reached because ordinary people did not have the qualification for such ambition.
“Get ready to start harvesting. The entire Spiritium will be gathered first before being allocated according to your contributions.” He waved his hand.
Three hundred individuals burst into cheers before quickly dispersing down the mountain in an orderly manner. They began searching for the hidden Spiritium.
Spiritium can be found in trees, plants, rocks or even in the ground.
To find it, they would have to start cutting down the trees and digging up the ground.
A bustling atmosphere enveloped the entire mountain. Tall and ancient trees were cut down, rocks were broken, the ground was split open by Genesis Qi…
Zhou Yuan was standing on a cliff, shaking his head somewhat helplessly at the chaotic scene. The group truly resembled a swarm of locusts that only knew how to destroy.
Unlike the others, Zhou Yuan did not have much interest in the Spiritium because he had much greater ambitions. What he wanted was the even rarer and more precious Alpha Spiritium.
However, Alpha Spiritium could not be found in these mini domains, but Zhou Yuan was not worried. The nine regions tournament had just begun, after all.
Zhou Yuan took a deep breath of the maddened ancient air before closing his eyes, silently waiting for them to finish their work.
As time passed, he quickly passed an incense stick.
Zhou Yuan's slightly closed eyes suddenly opened as a piercing gaze surged within them. He looked towards the northwest, where a Genesis Qi disturbance had originated.
Under Zhou Yuan's gaze, a dozen figures appeared on the horizon.
The dozen figures hurriedly fled. Eight figures followed closely, powerful Genesis Qi surging from their bodies.
The chased group were the scouts that Zhou Yuan had sent earlier.
As the scouts rushed towards him urgently, blasts of Genesis Qi continuously rose into the sky and exploded, forming a warning symbol.
It was the signal of an enemy attack!
The three hundred individuals who collected Spiritium also saw the signal. The team leaders immediately shouted for everyone to stop what they were doing as one figure after another rose into the air.
"Is someone coming to attack us?" Yi Qiushui quickly arrived at Zhou Yuan's side with a grave expression.
Zhou Yuan nodded as his eyes narrowed slightly. "I wonder what region this team is from?"
"They are very strong!" Yi Qiushui's expression suddenly changed as he looked into the distance. Likewise, he had discovered that only eight individuals were chasing the dozen scouts on his side.
One must know that the scouts they had sent were elites!
As they watched from afar, Genesis Qi suddenly pulsed from the eight pursuers, causing their speed to increase. In the next instant, they released several torrents of berserk Genesis Qi towards the scouts.
Their attacks were fast and fierce. It seemed that the scouts would not be able to avoid the bombardment.
Gasps sounded from the Tianyuan Region group.
However, a blurry figure suddenly appeared in the sky. With a wave of his sleeve, the golden Genesis Qi swept out and shattered the eight individuals' deadly attacks.
"The head of the pavilion is all-powerful!"
On the mountain, three hundred members of the Tianyuan Region burst into cheers.
The one who had stopped the attacks was naturally Zhou Yuan.
He stood in the air, looking at the eight pursuers as he said, “What region are you from? Who is the leader of your team?"
The experts at the advanced eighth stage of Divine Dwelling smiled shallowly when they saw Zhou Yuan. "Do you really want to know?"
Zhou Yuan narrowed his eyes.
One of the eight chuckled and said, “We are from the Wanzu region. Our team leader, hehe, it is an honor for you to meet him.”
“Our team leader is called Zhao Mushen.” They played by staring at Zhou Yuan.
These words made the faces of the three hundred members of the Tianyuan Region turn pale.
Zhou Yuan's pupils shrank.
Wanzu region? Zhao Mushen?!
The first team I encounter in Fallen Abyss is led by Zhao Mushen?!
At this moment, Zhou Yuan didn't feel like he was out of luck, but rather he smelled some kind of conspiracy.
Someone could be plotting against him!
