Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-842
Following the flow of time, the atmosphere within the auction ground
continued to rise. The auction items that had appeared at this moment
could already be considered a high grade items. The auction price was
basically a sky high one to an ordinary person. Hence, most of the people
were merely adopting the mentality of watching a show at this moment as
they observed this auction. However, being able to witness some large
factions fight over some treasures until their faces turned red and their
necks became stiff made this trip worthwhile.
Xiao Yan had seldom bid after bidding for the ‘Six Joint Body Flowing
Ruler’. Occasionally, he gave some bids because he fancied some rarer
medicinal ingredients. Although their prices were expensive, they won in
terms of not having too many competitors. Therefore, by the time he had
spent all of the three million gold coins in his pocket, quite a few
unusually rare spiritual medicines had landed in his hand.
As some auctioned items that caused one to be dazzled were placed on the
auction table one after another, even Xiao Yan could not help but feel
surprised by this rich stockpile of the Black Emperor Sect. During the
auction, some of the auctioned items were things that caused him to feel
some longing. However, after some thought, he did not issue a bid.
Originally, Xiao Yan’s greatest hope was to find a Monster Core of a
rank 7 Sky Poison Dragon Scorpion Beast in this auction. Currently, the
distance of the conditions for the Little Fairy Doctor to control the
‘Woeful Poison Body’ were coming closer. As long as they could obtain
the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva, all that was left was that
tier 7 Monster Core. If Xiao Yan was able to find it during this auction,
he would naturally save the time and effort needed to search for it.
Xiao Yan had thought of a beautiful picture but the Heavens did not
follow his desire. The Sky Poison Dragon Scorpion Beast was an existence
of a mysterious beast from the ancient times, much less one that was rank
7. At this rank, a Magical Beast’s intelligence was already not any
weaker than a human. Additionally, it could transform its body and was
very similar to a human. How would it be so easy to obtain the Monster
Core from a Magical Beast of such rank?
Hence, Xiao Yan could only sigh as this auction gradually approached its
end without him seeing the thing he needed like he had hoped.
“There is no need to be anxious. There is news of even the Bodhisattva
Body Transformation Saliva, which is the hardest to find. At least the
Sky Poison Dragon Scorpion Beast has a recognizable name.” The Little
Fairy Doctor by his side softly whispered to him after hearing Xiao
Yan’s soft sigh. She naturally knew that the former was hoping to
gather both of the items needed to control the ‘Woeful Poison Body’
from this auction.
Xiao Yan smiled bitterly and nodded. He could only scatter the hope
within his heart. After which, he slowly raised his head and threw his
gaze toward the auction stage.
At this moment, the auction gradually approached its end. Hence, the
auctioned items that had appeared at this moment were mostly heavyweight
items. For example, the item that was currently being auctioned was a
scroll named ‘Dark Shadow Skill’. It was a Di class Middle level
darkness affinity Qi Method.
The value of such Qi Methods were usually much greater than Dou Skills of
a similar class. For example, the price of this ‘Dark Shadow Skill’
scroll had already risen by a couple of large factions until a sky high
eight million. From the looks of the momentum, there was actually no
intention of stopping.
Given the actual value of this kind of Di class Qi Method, such a price
was not considered strange. Back then, the price of Xiao Yan’s Di class
Low level agility Dou Skill, the ‘Three Thousand Lightning Movement’,
was also around this sum. Looking at it from this way, Xiao Yan could
have been considered to have grabbed a deal by being able to successfully
obtain the ‘Six Joint Body Flowing Ruler’ for three million one
hundred thousand. If not for his status and that a ruler technique was
unorthodox, obtaining it for three million would undoubtedly be just a
Xiao Yan did not have much interest in this so-called ‘Dark Shadow
Skill’. He practiced the ‘Flame Mantra’ and it was impossible for
him to change to other Qi Methods. However, the latter’s class caused
him to feel some desire. When his ‘Flame Mantra’ reached this class,
Xiao Yan’s strength would definitely soar.
However, he had to swallow ‘Heavenly Flames’ if he wanted the Flame
Mantra to evolve. This kind of harsh condition caused Xiao Yan to feel
somewhat helpless. Remembering the ‘Heavenly Flame’, Xiao Yan once
again recalled the three ancient map fragments that were quietly stored
in his Storage Ring. He still did not have the slightest clue about the
last map fragment. Moreover, he was not as lucky as he was last time when
he found one during an auction…
“Looks like I can only take things slowly. When the time comes, I will
ask First Elder Su Qian. He is extremely experienced and knowledgeable.
It is possible that he might possess some information about the
whereabouts of some ‘Heavenly Flames’ on the continent…” Xiao Yan
involuntarily laughed as this thought flashed in his heart. He was indeed
not really used to not having Yao Lao beside him. Although he no longer
needed to borrow Yao Lao’s strength given his current strength, Yao
Lao’s great knowledge was something that Xiao Yan could not compare
The Dou Qi continent was incomparably large. There were many secrets
hidden within it. Xiao Yan might currently be an expert Dou Huang, but
the regions he had roamed only included the Jia Ma Empire and the
Black-Corner Region. However, these two places were quite tiny when
compared with the Dou Qi continent as a whole…
“Perhaps, it is time to walk out of this region…” Xiao Yan softly
sighed in his heart. His fist was slowly tightened. The perspective of
the strong could not be limited by anything. The Dou Qi continent was the
true stage. If he wanted to obtain a strength that could really contend
with the mysterious ‘Hall of Souls,’ he would only be able to do so
by traversing the Dou Qi continent!
A hot fire quietly burned in Xiao Yan’s heart as this thought surfaced.
Roaming the continent had been his hope for many years. Now, it was
perhaps the time to go and fulfill it. Of course, before that, he still
needed to settle the problems in this place…
“Nine million seven hundred thousand!”
A loud cry from the auction stage woke Xiao Yan from his emotional mind.
He raised his head and found that the ‘Dark Shadow Skill’ had already
been successfully purchased by a person for the sky high price of nine
million seven hundred thousand.
Surprise flashed across Xiao Yan’s heart at this price. It was likely
that the one who was able to take out such a huge sum was not an ordinary
Xiao Yan’s gaze slid to the spot where this bid was issued from while
his heart thought in this manner. He could only see a gray-haired
eagle-nosed old man slowly sitting down.
Xiao Yan narrowed his eyes slightly as he studied that gray-haired
eagle-nosed old man. Surprise flashed appeared in his heart. This was
because he discovered that this old man was actually one of the two
obscure auras that his Spiritual Perception had sensed earlier.
“I wonder which faction he belongs to? I think he should also have come
with the Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva as his aim.”
The eagle-nosed old man in the distant VIP seat seemed to have faintly
sensed a gaze being shot over. His head was immediately turned and his
shriveled old face revealed a faint smile when he saw that the person who
had shot his gaze over was actually Xiao Yan, whose entire body was
wrapped in a black robe. He nodded slightly to Xiao Yan and the Little
Fairy Doctor by his side before turning his head back.
“What sharp senses…” Xiao Yan’s heart was surprised when the
eagle-nosed old man turned his head around to investigate. The solemness
in his eyes became denser. If this person was not an elite Dou Zong, he
definitely possessed of some special outstanding skill. Otherwise, it
would not cause him to feel such faint fear.
Xiao Yan slowly withdrew his gaze. The caution in his heart also became
much denser. There were far too many experts who had an interest in the
Bodhisattva Body Transformation Saliva this time around. It will be a
difficult task for him to successfully snatch it from all these experts.
“He he, the item that is going to be auctioned next is somewhat
strange. However, it should possess quite the great attraction to some
people who have some needs.” The white-haired old man on the auction
stage wiped off the perspiration on his forehead and immediately waved
his hand with a smile. The ground behind him slowly parted. Ten burly men
carried an enormous object covered by a white cloth. They slowly climbed
onto the stage.
The large being that had suddenly appeared also stirred the curiosity of
quite a number of people. Many gazes quickly shot over. Xiao Yan was
“There is a corpse stench…” Zi Yan by his side wrinkled her small
nose as she spoke.
Xiao Yan was startled when he heard this. At this moment, that
white-haired old man let out an exhaling sound as he pulled down the
white cloth covering the object. After which, an enormous corpse that was
over a hundred feet large appeared in front of everyone.
The size of this Magical Beast’s body was quite large, but it appeared
to have been dead for a long time. The bones and flesh on its body were
in a dried state. The thing that attracted the most attention was the
enormous wings that had already turned into white bones. This pair of
enormous wings was quite strange. They appeared to be like some gem,
emitting a faint fluorescent light. Any sharp-eyed person could tell from
a glance that a strange energy was contained in these large wings.
However, by being able to maintain some energy despite being dead for so
long, it was likely that this Magical Beast was of quite a high rank when
it was alive.
“Ke ke, this Magical Beast corpse is something that my Black Emperor
Sect found by a mountain stream. After sect leader’s appraisal, this
Magical Beast should be a peerless beast that was about to break through
the seventh rank to enter the eighth!” The white-haired old man
explained in a solemn manner.
An uproar was stirred within the hall the moment his words sounded. A
Magical Beast that was about to enter the 8th rank? Was that not
equivalent to an elite Dou Zun? A Magical Beast of this rank possessed
the ability to reach the sky. Their lifespan was also extremely long. Why
would it die in this place?
Xiao Yan’s eyes locked firmly on the corpse of the Magical Beast while
the auction ground was in an uproar. A moment later, he turned his eyes
to its gem-like wings and an unusual flicker appeared in his eyes.
Xiao Yan’s hands moved slightly under the black robe. A golden-colored
scroll suddenly flashed out. Five eye-catching golden-light words were on
“Sky Bird Nine Flying Wings!”
