Without hesitation, Gou Wansheng took out the tortoiseshell and said, “We’ll set up an Exchange Array and put the things in.”
“Alright.” Di Jiu raised his hand and set up dozens of array flags, seemingly setting up a level-three Exchange Divine Array in the blink of an eye.
Gou Wansheng’s eyelids jumped at the sight of that. Since Di Jiu could set up a level-three Exchange Divine Array so quickly and easily, his Array Dao was evidently at least that of a level-five Divine Array King. Although he was also an Array Dao expert himself, he had to be extra careful when dealing with Di Jiu.
After the Exchange Divine Array had been set up, Di Jiu and Gou Wansheng did not hesitate to put the things in. Gou Wansheng was ecstatic, as he clearly sensed that Di Jiu had put in a jade bottle with Dao runes dissipating, which was definitely the aura of the Quintessential Essence of the Universe.
Di Jiu took Gou Wansheng’s tortoiseshell out of the Exchange Divine Array and sent a fist move out without hesitation.
The laws in the entire space seemed to get torn before turning into furious waves that swept toward Gou Wansheng.
When Gou Wansheng got a hold of the jade bottle, he sensed a deadly aura crushing over. He had a premonition that, after a while, this space would no longer belong to him. At that moment, Gou Wansheng was incomparably horrified.
Due to this fist move, he was sure that he was not Di Jiu’s match. He was actually far inferior to him.
In the past, Gou Wansheng had not been afraid of facing Di Jiu. However, Gou Wansheng did not dare have any other thoughts now and did not hesitate to activate the Starry Sky Teleportation.
Bam! Gou Wansheng was sure that, given his Starry Sky Teleportation, he could escape even from the clutches of a third-step expert.
When his teleportation divine power was activated, it was torn by the Dao rune domain of Di Jiu’s fist move. Then, it struck the middle of his back. Gou Wansheng felt every inch of his bones crack, as though his five organs were going to be turned into scraps, and then spat out an arrow of blood.
However, a moment later, he had vanished.
Di Jiu threw away the tortoiseshell in his hand, secretly shocked as he watched the direction in which Gou Wansheng had vanished. He was sure that Gou Wansheng’s escape technique was the strongest one he had encountered. Even Jiang Dai, who had fled the most, was not on the same level as Gou Wansheng.
As soon as Di Jiu had held the tortoiseshell, he had realized it was a fake and had thus sent a fist move out. During that period, there had been almost no interval. Despite the circumstances, Gou Wansheng had still escaped, showing how powerful his escape technique was.
If Gou Wansheng had used the Teleportation Divine Power Art, then that divine power was truly formidable.
Di Jiu did not take Gou Wansheng’s escape to heart. If he caught that guy next time, he would not have the same luck as today. Di Jiu took out his flying shuttle and the invitation that Xian Cang had given him. He was going to the Xian Ocean.
Gou Wansheng stopped and immediately took out an elixir pill to swallow it.
Although he had the Quintessential Essence of the Universe, Di Jiu’s strength made him tremble in fear. Fortunately, Di Jiu had attacked him after he had left the Heavenly Union Planet. Otherwise, even though he had escaped, he might have suffered more serious injuries.
At the moment, he wanted to reach the Dao Integration Realm in a hurry. If he didn’t, he increasingly felt that he would no longer be able to survive in this universe.
After the elixir pill dissolved, Gou Wansheng took out the jade bottle very carefully.
For the sake of this drop of Quintessential Essence of the Universe, he would resign himself to his fate no matter how serious his injuries were. With the jade bottle in his hand, he once again had lofty aspirations.
After he regained his strength, he would find Di Jiu again.
Gou Wansheng opened the jade bottle and suddenly felt that something was wrong. When his Spiritual Force permeated it, his expression immediately turned pale.
He had clearly sensed the aura of Quintessential Essence of the Universe dissipating outside the jade bottle. Why was this jade bottle empty?
Very soon, Gou Wansheng was sure that the other party had not given him the true Quintessential Essence of the Universe either, even though he had also used a fake tortoiseshell to trick Di Jiu.
Gou Wansheng’s face turned gloomy and then changed very quickly when he looked in the direction he had escaped from. He knew that no matter how courageous he was, he would not dare to look for Di Jiu again because he was simply too scary.
Gou Wansheng sighed. He did not dare return to the Heavenly Union Planet to wait and decided to try his luck at the place where the war had occurred back then.
The Xian Ocean was not far from the Heavenly Union Planet. Di Jiu did not go fast on the way and even stopped while walking. After half a year, he reached the periphery of the Xian Ocean.
Previously, Di Jiu had thought that the Xian Ocean was also a big ocean suspended in the void. It was not his first time seeing such a place.
When Di Jiu arrived at the periphery of the Xian Ocean, he realized that the Xian Ocean was actually a True Cultivation planet.
When he reached this planet, there seemed to be no land. It was actually a sea that looked similar to the Void Ocean but was, in fact, completely different.
There was a Defense Array outside the planet and a huge void square outside the Defense Array. The void square was lively with people who were coming and going. Di Jiu noticed that although the array door was guarded, the guards did not seem to collect a fee.
Many stalls were set up on the void square. Upon scanning them with his Spiritual Force, Di Jiu found out that most of the stalls there were selling a kind of silver ore material.
Di Jiu approached one of the stalls. When he picked up a piece of this material and looked at it, he immediately found a difference. The surface of this material looked silver, but there was a layer of a faint starry sky color. When his Spiritual Force landed on it, it seemed to be covered by a layer of a vast starry sky pattern. That should be the Supreme Glazed True Silver, right?
“Friend, do you want Supreme Glazed True Silver? I have level-two Supreme Glazed True Silver here. You can already see the starry sky on the surface.” Upon seeing Di Jiu observing the Supreme Glazed True Silver in his hand, the stall owner quickly introduced it to him.
According to his words, Di Jiu guessed that the level of the Supreme Glazed True Silver should be based on the starry sky pattern on the surface. The clearer the starry sky pattern was, the higher the grade of the Supreme Glazed True Silver would be.
“How many divine crystals for this piece of Supreme Glazed True Silver?” Di Jiu asked casually.
Upon hearing Di Jiu’s inquiry, the stall owner answered immediately, “If you really want it, I will give it to you for 2,200 high-grade divine crystals. You can just give me 2,000.”
“Alright.” Without bargaining at all, Di Jiu took out 2,000 high-grade divine crystals and handed them to the stall owner before he put away the Supreme Glazed True Silver that was in his hand.
Di Jiu did not have much use for this level-two Supreme Glazed True Silver. He had purchased it mainly for the Dao fire to break it down so that he could see its composition.
“Daoist, this should be your first time here, right? If you want Supreme Glazed True Silver, this kind of level-two Supreme Glazed True Silver is actually of little use.” When Di Jiu was ready to enter the Xian Ocean, a voice rang beside his ear. Di Jiu turned around to see a slightly fat young man looking at him with a smile.
This guy’s cultivation level was not high. He was only at the mid-stage Dao Birth Realm. Although he could not see through his cultivation level, he had dared to step forward and speak. Otherwise, as a Dao Birth cultivator, he would never have dared to call a late-stage Primordial Chaos cultivator a Daoist.
Di Jiu nodded. “Yes, this is my first time here. I took a look around, and there doesn’t seem to be any Supreme Glazed True Silver of a higher level.”
The fat young man replied in a low voice, “Friend, I actually have a way of obtaining Supreme Glazed True Silver of a higher level, even level five or level six.”
Di Jiu somewhat admired that. Even though the fat young man’s voice was low, in fact, that was also a divine power. Even if someone stood behind this fat young man, they would not be able to hear what the fat young man was saying.
Di Jiu smiled slightly. “But what if I want level-seven Supreme Glazed True Silver?”
The fat young man froze and immediately answered with a chuckle, “Don’t joke around, friend.”
Di Jiu faintly replied, “Do I look like I’m joking around?”
Upon sensing Di Jiu’s seriousness, the fat young man asked in amazement, “Are you for real? You know how precious level-seven Supreme Glazed True Silver is, right? Plus, level-seven Supreme Glazed True Silver is now beyond precious…”
Di Jiu took out a ring and said, “See whether the things in my ring are enough to purchase level-seven Supreme Glazed True Silver?”
