987 Bai Agrees to Elevate
Before hunting the Ghastly Spider Lady, Lin Huang used a Lucky Card intentionally but never had he expected that complete Ghastly Spider Lady Monster Cards would come out. Besides that, there were even demigod soul crystals.
After retrieving the Ghastly Spider Lady's demigod soul and Godhead in her body, Lin Huang put the carcass away and said to Bloody in his sleeve with his head down, "Where to next?"
"There's a Golden Venom Silkworm 6,800 kilometers in the southwest."
"Let's go!" Lin Huang hovered into the sky directly after putting the Ninetails Lynx away and headed straight southwest.
Past 10 a.m. the next morning, Lin Huang finally returned to the second layer from the third layer of the Abyss Brink.
He had spent the entire night killing all 16 demigod-level monsters in the Abyss Brink.
With the effect of the Lucky Cards and Double Reward Cards, his night full of reward was pretty handsome. He obtained a total of six compete Monster Cards, four demigod soul crystals, four demigod relics, 32 demigod souls, and 32 broken Godheads.
The six complete Monster Cards were two Titan Boas, two Ghastly Spider Ladies, and two Ghoul Lynxs.
Although they were all demigod-level monsters, due to the restriction of Lin Huang's combat strength, they were just like Bai and the rest whereby their combat strength was only on imperial-level yellow gold-rank.
Lin Huang also obtained 16 cross-ranking rewards. Since he had killed demigods, he would receive 80 card draws each time he killed one. With the Double Reward Cards, he obtained a total of 2,560 draws.
Lin Huang summoned Bai when he returned to the land where Tyrant and the rest were elevating.
Bai was rather puzzled when he saw the three golden eggs. However, he soon sensed the aura that he was familiar with inside the eggs. Tyrant and the rest were in there!
Lin Huang only explained upon seeing Bai glaring at the golden eggs, "I elevated Tyrant and the other two to mythical-level since I've gathered sufficient materials for them."
A sense of envy flashed through Bai's eyes when he heard that, but soon he hid his emotions.
"You don't have to be envious because I've gathered the materials for you too. You can elevate now." Lin Huang took out the materials one after another while speaking.
"You can't summon me after I elevate, can you?" Bai asked.
"It's alright. That'll just be temporary," Lin Huang explained while smiling, "I've found a way to elevate to imperial-level, so I should complete the elevation soon."
Bai fell into silence for a moment before asking again, "Your Combat Souls… Are they much more powerful than us?"
It was Lin Huang's turn to fall into silence when he heard the question. He nodded a while later. "There are three of them who can kill demigods now while the remaining four should be able to fight demigods face-on."
"I get it now. Let's elevate then." Bai nodded firmly after hearing the answer.
"Let's begin then." Lin Huang handed the materials to Bai one after another for the integration following the instructions on the cards.
The integration process was extremely torturous, especially integrating the demigod blood and demigod soul. The expression on Bai's face was so distorted that he looked like something else now.
Usually, it only required the integration of a ton demigod blood and ten demigod souls. However, the instruction at the back of the card said the more, the better.
Bai integrated a total of three tons of demigod blood and 32 demigod souls. He said nothing throughout the entire process whereby he stood where he was while blood gushed out of the pores all over his body.
Even Lin Huang, who stood aside, was frowning hard when he saw this grisly scene. He did not stop Bai. Instead, he crushed five Advance Cards.
Bai's pain finally faded when the five Advance Cards turned into five golden glows which penetrated his body. Just like Tyrant and the rest, his body began turning into a golden egg too.
Lin Huang released a long exhale of relief upon seeing Bai enter the elevation mode. "This round of elevation is finally done."
Since he had completed the core goal of elevating the four imperial monsters, Lin Huang turned his head and looked at the two God Figurines' Combat Souls beside.
He then summoned all four of his imperial-level white gold-rank God Figurines' Combat Souls.
The Divine Sun Tree mastered the Fire Rule. Everything would be inflammable when it elevated to its peak in order to strengthen itself.
The Enchanted Fairy mastered the Ice Rule. It could freeze the entire world from revolving when it was elevated to its peak.
The Undead Styx mastered the Spirit Rule. When it elevated to its peak, it could turn any living thing into its loyal worshippers as it wished, building countless undead armies. It could also retrieve countless inheritances from the numerous souls and own them.
The Withered Flower mastered the Life Rule. It could revive the dead on a large scale when it elevated to its peak. It could also engulf all living things in the world and turn it into a dead, barren land.
All four Combat Souls had abilities no less than the Ninetails Lynx and the rest. It was just that they were one rank lower in terms of combat strength.
Initially, Lin Huang could not decide which Combat Soul he should use the two demigod soul crystals that he had obtained from auctioning the god relic Ba Huang on. However, he had obtained another four during the hunt this time, so it was sufficient now.
After summoning the four God Figurines' Combat Souls, he took out four demigod soul crystals and threw them towards the four Combat Souls that grabbed the demigod soul crystals without thinking twice and swallowed them.
The God Figurines' Combat Souls completed their breakthrough merely over ten minutes later. All of them had elevated to imperial-level purple gold-rank, and their aura was just as strong as the Destructive Divine Mammoth.
Lin Huang made the Undead Styx stay to guard the premises as he put the three God Figurines' Combat Souls away.
He began practicing on his own.
The Undead Styx had hundred thousands of imperial-level armies in its body whereby it had close to 200 imperial-level purple gold-rank powerhouses alone. Even if it did not fight by itself, the hundred thousand-strong armies were sufficient to fight two to three demigods. Furthermore, it was under the premise of no battle formation.
In reality, Lin Huang got Bloody to share all of its battle formation knowledge to the Undead Styx ever since it formed its undead army. What he had no idea about was how well the Undead Styx mastered the battle formation now.
Two white-robed people rushed through the second layer of the Abyss Brink, ignoring any monsters' aura around completely.
In reality, there was nothing that they should worry about since both of them were imperial-level purple gold-rank powerhouses. They did not hide their aura at all. All of the monsters along the way would hide when they sensed the duo's aura. They were afraid that they would be discovered.
The most powerful monster in the second layer of the Abyss Brink was only on imperial-level yellow gold-rank after all. Picking a fight with anyone whose combat strength was two ranks higher was definitely asking for death.
"We've searched through the few usual hunting zones on the second layer, but we didn't find Lin Xie's trace at all. Could he not be in the hunting zone?"
"There are only two possibilities. He's either in the hunting zone or he's gone to the third layer."
"Why did he even come to the Abyss Brink if he's not going for the hunting zones?"
"Who knows? We can only search following the map. We can't let go of even a single zone!"
