Chapter 960 Seventy million
Zhou Yuan and Yuan Kun silently followed Jiu Gong into the depths of the ice mountain when he suddenly stopped his steps. Zhou Yuan looked forward and saw an ice cave in front of them.
The ice cave led underground, making it extremely deep.
Without saying anything, Jiu Gong jumped down. Zhou Yuan and Yuan Kun exchanged a look before following her.
They quickly slid down the ice cave, the cold wind whipping their bodies.
Such a rapid descent lasted for several minutes, and the deeper they went, the more solemn Zhou Yuan's expression became. The temperature was plummeting and in the end, he had to operate his Genesis Qi to withstand the freezing temperature.
It was impossible for ordinary people to stay for long in such harsh conditions.
As Zhou Yuan began to panic, Jiu Gong suddenly extended her beautiful hand and touched the ice wall, leaving deep claw marks with just her fingertips. His speed slowed and he floated downwards.
They seemed to have arrived.
The Genesis Qi at Zhou Yuan and Yuan Kun's feet trembled, and their speed also decreased.
The three of them descended onto a huge, bulging block of ice.
Looking down, Zhou Yuan saw a tremendous frozen lake below them. Huge blocks of ice floating on the lake, and he vaguely saw dozens of light spots in the depths of the lake.
He transferred Genesis Qi into his eyes, and his gaze became sharp. Looking across the lake, he made out ten points of light.
Ten ice lotuses! They were vivid and bloomed slowly. Each petal was engraved with mysterious patterns as if they were created naturally. They also looked real but gave off an illusory feeling, as if they were formed by the flow of air. The ice lotuses were incredibly strange.
When Zhou Yuan saw them, his Divine Dwellings trembled violently with longing.
Zhou Yuan inhaled sharply, a look of surprise and joy filling his eyes.
Besides Alpha Spiritium, what other items could make his Divine Abodes react so strongly? Those ice lotuses were undoubtedly formed from Alpha Spiritium!
While Zhou Yuan was overjoyed, he heard the sound of gulping next to him. Yuan Kun was staring into the depths of the frozen lake, and that look of desire almost burst forth from his eyes.
Yuan Kun couldn't help but take two steps forward.
"If you want to die, go in," Jiu Gong said coldly.
Zhou Yuan focused his gaze, the Spirit in the middle of his eyebrows flashed, and his power of perception spread.
After a few breaths, he shifted his gaze to a small block of ice floating on the frozen lake. Vaguely, he saw a silhouette inside.
The silhouette erupted with a dangerous and uncontrollable aura, stinging Zhou Yuan's skin.
Zhou Yuan grabbed Yuan Kun's arm and signaled to him with his eyes.
When Yuan Kun looked up, his fat trembled and his expression became solemn. "Is it a fallen shadow?"
Jiu Gong replied indifferently: “From my research, Fallen Shadow should have been at the Heavenly Sun stage before his death. So, although his strength has weakened considerably, his Genesis Qi base should still have around 70 million Genesis Qi stars.”
Yuan Kun gasped in astonishment, and even Zhou Yuan's eyelids trembled a little.
"Seventy million stars Genesis Qi."
That was stronger than any of them! If they were fighting alone, any of them would be completely crushed. After all, a gap of tens of millions in Genesis Qi was enough to make anyone desperate.
Jiu Gong cast a glance at Yuan Kun, saying, "Do you know now why I haven't obtained any Alpha Spiritium?"
Yuan Kun looked a little embarrassed, but then replied, "Since you know you can't get them yourself, why did you kick me out earlier?"
Jiu Gong was taken aback for a moment. She snorted, “I only found the Fallen Shadow after I got rid of you. Besides, I knew you wouldn't give up so easily and come back. There's also a good chance you'll find someone to help you."
Yuan Kun exclaimed, “So you were waiting for me to return with an assistant!? "Then why are you so arrogant?!"
Feeling cheated, he gave her an exasperated look.
Jiu Gong said indifferently, “If you had brought the leader from one of the other regions, I wouldn't have had to set up a formation to test you. But you had brought Zhou Yuan, so of course I needed to test his strength.”
Zhou Yuan ignored the fight between the two and continued studying the ice-covered Fallen Shadow. "Even if we join forces, I don't think we can get rid of him."
Even if they used an amplification art to increase their fundamentals, their Genesis Qi would be at most between 50 million and 60 million. But three people with 60 million total Genesis Qi still couldn't compare to someone with a base of 70 million!
Yuan Kun nodded, "A base of 70 million Genesis Qi stars, only Zhao Mushen, Wu Yao, and Su Youwei have this ability."
“Wang Xi should also be able to reach that level,” Jiu Gong added.
Zhou Yuan's eyes flashed. Zhao Mushen's Genesis Qi Foundation has exceeded 70 million! Indeed, it is a powerful enemy!
He scanned the surroundings and turned to Jiu Gong, saying, “There are remains of Genesis Rune, is that your doing?”
Jiu Gong gave him a surprised look. “Your Spirit is very sensitive. That's right. He had left these Genesis Rune. "I originally planned to set a Genesis Rune Limit."
Zhou Yuan pondered for a moment before saying, “A limit is not a bad plan, but it won't be enough. Even if you move the Golden Meridian Light Boundary here, it will still be difficult to hurt the Fallen Shadow.”
Jiu Gong shook his head. “The Golden Meridian Light Boundary requires many nodes and people. It is a large-scale training. But the cold, harsh conditions here make it difficult for anyone to get closer than the three of us.”
Zhou Yuan was silent. Without the limit of the golden meridian light, ordinary limits would only pose a small impediment.
He and Yuan Kun could, at most, lightly injure a Heavenly Sun Fallen Shadow stage, but such injuries were unlikely to lead to a victory. At that time, when the battle became intense, the slightest carelessness could result in his elimination.
The three were silent for a long time and the atmosphere became somewhat depressing.
It was clear that they were extremely reluctant to leave. After all, it was incredibly difficult to find Alpha Spiritium, and there were ten strands here! How could they be willing to let the Fallen Shadow obstruct them?
During this silence, Zhou Yuan's eyes suddenly shone. "But it's not impossible to deal with it."
Shocked looks crossed Yuan Kun and Jiu Gong's faces.
"You have a plan?" Jiu Gong asked doubtfully. Ordinary methods would be ineffective in dealing with Fallen Shadow with a base of at least 70 million Genesis Qi.
Zhou Yuan calmly said, “I have a treasure that possesses sealing power, and if it hits its target, it can seal at least half of the Genesis Qi. But this treasure is one of my trump cards, and there is a limit to the number of times I can use it. “So, if we end up with ten strands of Alpha Spiritium, I need to have at least half.”
The sealing treasure that Zhou Yuan spoke of was indeed the Five Spirits Universe Tower that he had snatched from Lu Hai and the others. You could almost turn it on after holding it for a period of time and of course the amount of restrictions you mentioned was a lie.
"Five?" Yuan Kun and Jiu Gong frowned. In front of a treasure like the Alpha Spiritium, even the greatest celestial prides of the nine regions would seem insignificant.
Yuan Kun and Jiu Gong were obviously reluctant to let Zhou Yuan get half of the action.
But Zhou Yuan didn't say anything else. He just looked at the two people, appearing extremely firm.
He did not deliberately take advantage of the situation. In fact, its sealing method could play a crucial role and its contribution would be the greatest.
Yuan Kun and Jiu Gong were very intelligent and understood this very well. Therefore, they gritted their teeth and reluctantly agreed.
"Well, if your seal is as good as you say, then after this matter is resolved, you can have half of the Alpha Spiritium!"
