The City of Terror - Chapter 363
In the end, the tendrils shrunk back into the crack, leaving behind an ash gray bone powder.
The nutrients found in the human corpse had been absorbed by the strands and placed in the Fledgling Life Altar's storage.
Naturally, a single corpse was not enough.
Wei Xiao Bei's gaze immediately landed on a rabbit that was nibbling on leaves.
After looking at it, Wei Xiao Bei shook his head and jumped into the river.
This was not because Wei Xiao Bei had suddenly become merciful.
In truth, he felt that the rabbit's permanent death would be like freedom for them, freeing them from getting deeper into this terrifying cycle.
However, at this time, Wei Xiao Bei did not want the Fledgling Life Altar to go back into a deep sleep.
After all, the thirteen rabbits hid golden strands in their bodies. It was very possible for the Fledgling Life Altar to become full again and go back to sleep to evolve.
While waiting uninterestedly, Wei Xiao Bei observed the forest where the sounds of animals could be heard.
There should be some opportunity for profit here.
While crossing the brook, Wei Xiao Bei began to calculate something. His current evolution points accumulated to a total of 5878 points.
Previously, when he exited the Dust World, he had accumulated more than 4000 evolution points. Now that he had killed Leng Xin Xing and some members of the Ash Gray organization, he had gained more than 800 evolution points. After eating the golden strands, black mist, and killing the wolves, he had gained 300 more evolution points.
From this, it can be seen that the number of evolution points gained from killing a normal person was few.
On average, a normal person only gave Wei Xiao Bei around 60 evolution points.
This number had already reached the amount of the majority of 1-Star Elite Creatures.
Wei Xiao Bei was warning himself though to not get used to slaughtering humans.
In truth, if the members of Ash Gray had not wanted to kill him, even he was not willing to put his hand on them.
This kind of killing would turn into an addiction.
With Wei Xiao Bei's current strength, normal people were as weak as ants in front of him.
Try imagining children using boiling water to deal with ants. Was this not something they relished??
Especially for adults, if they were able to control another person's life and death, it would give them a type of pleasure that is difficult to suppress.
When he first learned martial arts, Cheng Bi Wu's favorite words were martial ethics.
People who learned martial arts should not use their skills to bully others!
People who don't have these martial ethics would become the scum of the martial arts world, and this was not an exaggeration.
Wei Xiao Bei remembered that there was a classmate in middle school whose maternal grandfather was a true martial practitioner. Although he was not famous, he indeed knew true martial arts.
What made Wei Xiao Bei puzzled was that this classmate, as the grandchild of a martial practitioner, did not actually learn martial arts and even viewed it strangely.
Wei Xiao Bei was very interested in the so-called Shaolin Martial Arts and other martial arts that he saw on television at the time. However, his classmate did not think anything of it at all, and could even be said to have detested it deeply.
After being pressured by Wei Xiao Bei, his classmate told him the true story.
It was because ten years prior, the classmate's maternal uncle had been executed. The main reason was that his uncle had fought in the streets and killed his opponent with one kick after becoming enraged.
At that time, the laws on these types of cases were very strict.
In the end, his classmate's grandfather saw his child die in front of him and became extremely sorrowful. Therefore, he declared that no one else in his family should learn martial arts!
From then on, his line of martial arts and martial artists had been severed.
There was no doubt that because of this, it was very clear how weak normal people compared to martial artists.
In simpler terms, if people like Wei Xiao Bei were not alert and did not restrict themselves, it was easy to become a demon even without being seduced by the Demon King of Sixth Heaven.
People who were stronger than normal people were likely to do violent things.
After thinking about this, Wei Xiao Bei focused his attention on his willpower.
There was no doubt that with his increase in strength, Wei Xiao Bei would encounter more creatures that could control his mental state in the future. There was no need to think about this further.
To prevent himself from being controlled by the enemy, he needed to increase his willpower.
After all, his twenty points in willpower and [Iron Will] appeared to not be enough anymore.
As the evolution points quickly decreased, his willpower began to increase.
20.01, 20.02, 20.03……
After his willpower reached 20 points, he needed two evolution points to increase it by 0.01 points.
It was easy to imagine how many evolution points he used up.
After using 4000 evolution points, his willpower had increased to 40 points.
When his willpower reached 40 points, he did not feel muddle-headed at all. On the contrary, his mind became extremely clear and gained incomparably firm confidence.
Indomitable Spirit: This ability was promoted from Iron Will. It allows the user to block the majority of illusory, charming, and mind-affecting attacks. Has a high chance of blocking intimidation from creatures 2 stars above the user. Activating this ability will increase the effectiveness of all skills and abilities by 10%.
After reaching 40 points in willpower, Wei Xiao Bei's [Iron Will] turned into [Indomitable Spirit].
On the surface, there was not much difference between the two abilities and it even appeared that the later was lacking.
[Iron Will] could also block the majority of illusory, charming, or and mind-affecting attacks. It also had the power to block intimidation from creatures 3 stars higher.
[Indomitable Spirit] was stronger than [Iron Will] in terms of blocking the majority of illusory, charming, or and mind-affecting attacks, but its resistance against intimidation appears to be weaker.
However, if the fact that Wei Xiao Bei's creature rank had reached 3-Star Terror was considered, then this ability was stronger than [Iron Will].
Naturally, from Wei Xiao Bei's point of view, [Indomitable Spirit]'s true worth was the last line. After activating it, it would increase the effect of all skills and abilities by 10%.
10% might look small but this affected all his skills and abilities!
In other words, after activating this ability, his skills such as [Shooting], [Bajiquan], [Medicine], etc. would all become stronger by 10%. Even his special skills like [Release Electricity], [Limb Regrowth], etc. would also be affected.
If his [Cooking] skill was increased, then that meant the probability of making rare quality dishes and immortal quality dishes would increase by 10%!
If he used Iron Mountain Lean, activated [Intermediate Power Burst], used [Precise Calculation] and [Response Search] to aim for a weak point, and then finally added in [Indomitable Spirit], Wei Xiao Bei believed that he could even destroy a skyscraper!
In brief, this ability's benefits were clear as can be.
After obtaining this ability, Wei Xiao Bei's bad mood had cleared. Even if he was walking into the forest, he did not hesitate at all.
The forest was very quiet to the point that even the cries of insects could not be heard.
As Wei Xiao Bei walked in, he could even hear the sound of his footsteps on the grass.
Compared to the forest in the real world, the forest in the Dust World was small. It was only around seventy hectares, not even reaching one square kilometer.
Wei Xiao Bei only used up ten minutes to circle the place, but he did not notice anything unusual at all.
It was as if the clone of the Demon King of Sixth Heaven did not exist.
However, there was no life at all in the forest except for trees, vines, and shrubs. The lack of any insects would, in turn, make the vegetation strange.
Moreover, Wei Xiao Bei noticed that after entering the forest, the dull gray sky gradually became darker, as if it had become night.
This was the first time Wei Xiao Bei encountered such a situation in the Dust World, thus he increased his vigilance.
He did not stay in the forest at all as he turned back around the way he came.
Previously, Wei Xiao Bei did not encounter anything strange when he entered, but when he turned around, the sky instantly became pitch black.
There was no light at all as the entire forest turned black. He could not even see his fingers.
Response Search activate!
At this moment, the sound of an elephant's cry came from afar followed by the sound of collapsing trees.
However, the sound quickly vanished.
In his mind, Wei Xiao Bei saw a pitch-black elephant currently running toward him. Its eyes were scarlet red, and the side of its mouth was leaking saliva. It appeared to be rabid.
In half a breath's time, the rotten smell that was characteristic of the forest had disappeared from Wei Xiao Bei's nose.
There was no doubt that Wei Xiao Bei no longer had his sense of sight, smell, or hearing.
Therefore the next one he would lose should be either taste or touch.
The clone of the Demon King of Sixth Heaven had begun its attack once he tried to leave the forest, and it planned to take away all of Wei Xiao Bei's senses!
If it were other people, losing their senses would make them go crazy from fear.
Any person, once they lost all five senses, would feel as if they had sunk into complete darkness. They could not even feel themselves, their arms, their legs. It was easy to imagine how difficult this was to endure.
However, Wei Xiao Bei did not panic and instead smiled.
With his [Response Search], there was no problem even if Wei Xiao Bei lost his senses.
